00:52<kingsley>Is there a general consensus that mysql is better than postgresql, or vica versa?

01:31<Helpme>This page is generated by Parallels Plesk Panel, the leading hosting automation software. You see this page because there is no Web site at this address.

01:31-!-Don`Shish`Cone [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:32<chealer>Helpme: so there's no HTTP server on 8443.
01:33-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
01:34<Helpme>how do i enable it sir?
01:39<chealer>Helpme: depends on what is "it". if it is apache, then it needs to be configured... if it is plesk, I have no idea (I don't know Plesk)
01:40<Helpme>its apache yes
01:40<drakeman>exactly, but apache is runing.
01:40<Helpme>i have both

02:41<etbe>I've just upgraded myu EeePC 701 to Squeeze and now X won't recognise my mouse. I'm using the Lenny kernel and gpm accepts the mouse so I know it's not a hardware or kernel driver issue. Any suggestions?
02:42<jm_>did you check the logfile?
02:43<etbe>As an aside, Google is painful to use with Lynx, is there a better text mode web browser?
02:43<jm_>google painful? that's as simple as it can get ;)
02:44<etbe>jm_: The only message related to a mouse in the xorg.0.log file is "Silken mouse enabled"
02:45<etbe>jm_: Lynx keeps prompting me about whether to accept cookies, "Always" doesn't seem to mean much to it. The layout on a 80*25 screen isn't too good either.
02:45-!-streuner_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:45<jm_>etbe: try links or w3m -- as for mouse, is there anything else input related? what's in your xorg.conf?
02:47<etbe>jm_: It's almost entirely empty. it seems that xorg is figuring out how to do almost everything by itself. The InputDevice section for the moue only has Identifier "Configured Mouse" and Driver "mouse"

02:47-!-igorxus [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:48<jm_>etbe: right, that's normal these days - does it help if you stop gpm? otherwise you need to add mouse section by hand and try with that
02:49<etbe>jm_: No, in fact I disabled gpm and rebooted the machine without it - just to be sure.

03:00<etbe>jm_: I tried pasting that secion og xorg.conf in but it gavethe same result. It seems unlikely to me that it could be a hardware issue as I';m using the same kernel that worked with Lenny user-space.

03:21-!-mosno [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
03:22<Supaplex>hah. /usr/bin/ != /sbin/
03:22<jm_>well your sudoers line is wrong then
03:22<Supaplex>try ls /usr/bin/shutdown and see why Cmnd_alias SHUTDOWN is of no use.
03:22<Supaplex>then, use which shutdown, and see why sudo yelled about /sbin/shutdown.

03:30<jstein>hi, how can i find out, wich debian package (testing) comes with the file siunitx.sty
03:30<dpkg>Please search for things rather than just asking. Eg, 'apt-cache search regex', or with <aptitude search>. The following ways can locate packages that own a file (installed, or candidate for install) 'dpkg -S /bin/foo', <apt-file>, <pdo> (online), and <help find> (bot). <dpkg search> for factoids. See and ask me about <bot help>.

03:31-!-drakeman [~drakeman@] has joined #debian
03:32<jstein>apt-cache search siunitx.sty responds with 0 lines
03:33<dpkg>methinks apt-file is a utility used to find which package owns a given file or list files in a package even if it's not installed: "aptitude install apt-file && apt-file update" ; then "apt-file search filename" to see a list of packages containing filename (can also use a regexp; see man apt-file). You can also search online; ask me about <pdo> <auto-apt> <dlocate>
03:34<jm_>jstein: if you read what dpkg said, you'd notice it mentions several methods
03:35<jstein>but they answer with "Sorry, your search gave no results" and similar :(
03:35<jm_>which tool?
03:36<Supaplex>well, what if it doesn't exist in debian?
03:36<jm_>always an option
03:37<jstein>i was shure i have installed it at home
03:37<jstein>but i want to install it at work now too and dont find it... seems i have to run a texhash and so on manually
03:38<jm_>SIunits.sty maybe
03:38<jm_>i.e. texlive-science package

03:42<Supaplex>try a different search, based on something else that might match the stuff you're looking for.
03:44<jstein>but thank you for your time. i 'll install manually now. I'll copy the ! search hint to my personal doc

03:46<drakeman>Supaplex if im running squeeze, and when i run apt-get upgrade, i got a message that says 91 not upgrade, should i run apt-get -u dist-upgrade? to update to the latest squeez release?
03:47-!-cloud [] has joined #debian
03:47<drakeman>if u run the dist upgrade command i get this 91 upgraded, 79 newly installed, 4 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
03:47<drakeman>should i run this?
03:48<drakeman>to get the latest versions?
03:48<Supaplex>with caution.
03:48<dpkg>Bug Tracking System for Debian packages, or to go directly to the bug page for a particular package/bug, try or . aptitude install reportbug, and check out <querybts> too. Users of unstable and testing are required to check the BTS. Useful for unstable and testing: aptitude install apt-listbugs <apt-listchanges>.
03:48<drakeman>anything can go wrong?
03:49<Supaplex>testing is meant for developers, or those who can manage complications it can create.
03:49<drakeman>but debian release a new testing cd every week, if i run the upgrade im would be getting the latest packages from the latest debian testing image?
03:49<Supaplex>if it's suppose to be reliable, we call it stable.

03:51<Supaplex>if I say upgrade, it'll be fine, and one thing breaks, you have every right to get upset at me. So to avoid that, and answer your question as you've presented it, "with caution" is the best I can offer.
03:51<dpkg>[testing] a release/suite between <stable> and <unstable>. Testing currently points to <squeeze> and as <lenny> has only just been released, squeeze users are in for a bumpy ride. Either be clueful or be told that you shouldn't be using testing. See Ask me about <testing faq><lenny->squeeze><testing security><moving target><dda><apt-listchanges><bts>.

03:53<Supaplex>it works for a lot of people, but it's been known to break painfully for plenty too.
03:53<drakeman>ahhhhh, i dont know what to do
03:53-!-zeroXten [~zeroXten@] has joined #debian
03:54<dpkg>apt-listbugs (aptitude install apt-listbugs) is available since at least Sarge. When installed, it will fetch the list of critical <bts> bugs that pertain to any packages being installed. Modern releases allow you to pin a version to prevent upgrades to any packages you discover to be too risky (see <pinning>). Older releases only allowed holding (see <hold>).
03:55<Supaplex>with that, you can hold off packages you find scarry bugs on. testing is aged just enough, that a lot of bugs can be avoided. there's a holding period of about 10 days (I don't recall exactly) before the sid package can be migrated to testing (with no critical bugs, and other criteria)
03:56-!-alephnull [~alok@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:56<locklace>yep, 10 days, and the dependencies have to be sane
03:57<drakeman>i installed this install apt-listbugs, is a list of known bugs?
03:57<dpkg>[apt-listchanges] a package that shows you the NEWS.Debian and/or the Debian changelogs for packages before upgrading them. It's well worth it for stable users, to see what is happening to their machines as they apply security fixes. It should be made _mandatory_ for users of testing and unstable. Also ask me about <d-d-a>.
03:57<Supaplex>it'll fetch bugs from bts and show you them.
03:58<EmleyMoor>drakeman: It alerts you to bugs in packages you are about to install - giving you the chance to hold off if you will be affected
03:58<Supaplex>hence, listbugs. :)

05:30<micha-->hi, i am in trouble with the new udev: the boot process runs up to "waiting for /dev/ to be fully populated" and stops there for quite some time. i tried a hard reboot, which led to a row of fsck error messages: the hard disks at /dev/hd* couldnt be found anymore. now i did a clean reboot from the emergency root shell, an it is back at populating /dev
05:30-!-eraserhead [] has joined #debian
05:31<azeem>what is a hard reboot compared to a clean reboot?
05:31<micha-->strange enough, i am booting from /dev/hda1
05:31<jm_>doesn't it give you shell where you can inspect things after it fails to mount /?

05:32-!-zvoice [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
05:33<micha-->jm_: yes, but it couldnt find any devices in /dev/hd* then, so it was obvious why fsck would complain about not finding a superblock

05:38<micha--> seem to be the culprit
05:39<micha-->i have some scanner drivers from epson installed, the iscan package, but it seems to get over that

06:50<weasel>that's not what adduser and useradd do, no.

12:09<gravity>locklace: It's pretty much a popularity contest that drove that one
12:10<locklace>phonebook: "better" is personal preference, but the big advantage of vi is that it's everywhere.
12:10<mibber>What about nano?
12:10<phonebook>ok, it's everywhere. That's no reason for me to use it on my computers. I'm not a sysadmin.
12:10<locklace>gravity: was there an actual poll/vote?
12:10<bja>phonebook: It also runs on a dime and stops on a cent
12:10<mibber>I've been introduced to that lately when I tried using hg.
12:10<gravity>phonebook: I'd say that vim is demonstrably better than pico or nano
12:10<locklace>gravity: my view, nvi should be default for the same reason that dash should be default /bin/sh (something that just about everyone seems on board with now)

12:12<gravity>phonebook: Sure I do. That's a different question though.
12:12<mibber>Hmm. Yeah. I tried using vi(m?) once. I was kind of bummed that it didn't have text coloring out of the box.
12:12<phonebook>gravity - nano just FEELS better to me.

12:13<koollman>phonebook: which is perfectly fine. It's just not a 'power tool', as gravity said

12:13-!-drakeman [~drakeman@] has quit [Quit: exit]

12:13<koollman>which is kind of embarassing when you know how to use a more powerful tool.
12:13<gravity>phonebook: You're arguing a different issue than you were a few few minutes ago though, where you were saying that people claim to like vi because they're being 133t or whatever

12:13<phonebook>gravity I stick to my claim that people argue in favor of vi partially to appear elite
12:14<gravity>locklace: Sure, any choice can be made. And there's no real right answer. But my sense is that vim is far more popular and is a reasonable default these days.
12:15<bja>phonebook: Vi is one of the longest default editors for linux, sometimes it was the only one working, so you had to learn it to survive.
12:15<gravity>phonebook: And I'd aruge that people doing real work need better tools than what pico/nano provide.
12:15<locklace>gravity: yeah, not too bent out of shape about it, and at least it's the "relatively minimal" version. the bash-as-sh thing is far more of a pain

16:12<ml|>locklace: that is what i suggested before
16:12-!-[cipher] [~cipher@] has joined #debian
16:12<stuckey>What exactly is the line?
16:12<dpkg>To configure the screen-blanker for virtual (text) consoles, use the setterm(1) utility or edit /etc/console-tools/config for permanent changes. To configure the X screen-blanker and screen power management settings, use the xset(1) utility or set the appropriate options in xorg.conf; see "man xorg.conf | less +/^SERVERFLAGS".
16:12<locklace>that man page has the details
16:13<locklace>there is at least a serverflag (blanktime) and monitor option (dpms) you need to set
16:13<locklace>look at the "serverflags" and "monitor" sections

16:24<Sebboh>hi. I've set up a debian guest vserver, and it was built by debootstrap. It's an oldstable (etch) machine. ..Apt wasn't installed by default, so I downloaded a bunch of .debs and got it installed. But doesn't work, it complains and suggests -f to fix this, no way am I doing that. Here's the complaint: ..Advice?

16:38<Sebboh>btw, the solution to my strife was to actually run the command that apt recommended: apt-get -f install ... I'd previously heard that I shouldn't do that, but it was the right choice in this situation.
16:39<ml|>Sebboh: ever thought of using aptitude
16:39<mentor>but, but, but... 7 packages isn't a system... it's 7 packages....
16:40<locklace>maybe they're really big packages

16:41<Sebboh>..yeah thanks for the dpkg there, buddy. I'm not going to use aptitude, and even if I *were* it wouldn't have installed on the system we're talking about here, not without 3x the work I'd already done.

16:56<stuckey>if I just install wmii package, and then select it at gdm, will gnome still be "operating" ?
16:57<locklace>stuckey: there is no "default"
16:57<stuckey>You know, so like, doing stuff in the background that I don't know about.

You can use it as a CLI replacement for apt-get; it keeps track of automatically installed packages and will offer to remove them when no longer required.

22:03<nick_>how do I just tell grub to install everywhere just to get it installed again.

22:33<chucknorriou>hey everyone, I've got a question regardin the Debian install. At what point do you get to select a desktop? I did an install as guest on a vmware using the i386 DVD of Debian 5.1 and didn't get to choose. Is adding the desktop a post install manual process?

22:43<chucknorriou>I actually wanted "awesome" but I thought Xorg was going to be installed during the install process, which it wasn't.
22:44-!-pos [~mark@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
22:45-!-pos [~mark@] has joined #debian
22:45<abrotman>so .. aptitude install xorg awesome
22:45<abrotman>and xdm or something like that if you want it
22:46<chucknorriou>I tried installing both xorg and awesome manually but running startx startx twm. The global xinitrc only has one line in it.
22:46<chucknorriou>I have no .xinitrc in my home dir
22:47<chucknorriou>I tried copying the global file to my home dir and adding an 'awesome &' line in there but startx still startx twm.
22:47<abrotman>manually ?
22:48<chucknorriou>sorry by manually I mean not through the installation process. I used 'apt-get install xorg' and 'apt-get install awesome' which installed without any errors.

22:57<chealer>chucknorriou: it's not supposed to be a post install process (unless you want any non-default desktop)
22:58<abrotman>chucknorriou: did you try .xsession ?

22:58<chucknorriou>is that where it might be launching twm?
22:59<abrotman>there's also `update-alternatives --config x-window-manager`
23:01<chucknorriou>ok, I'll give that a shot too. As long as I know it's not a post install process I can go through it again. Perhaps I missed something or pressed the enter key too quickly.
23:02<chucknorriou>thanks guys.

23:52<chealer>Zviper: well, don't do it if you don't want, I was just answering your question.
23:53<chealer>Zviper: do you really mean 444 or 443?
23:53<Zviper>444 because no process is using 444
23:53-!-f_9 [~airon@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
23:54<Zviper>and it works so if i can seemlessly redirect the user to when they type it'd be perfect
