01:26<streuner>Steven_M: that sounds to me, its an issue for 2.6.18 kernels, specially for etch?
01:27<streuner>Steven_M: so you running oldstable or what kind of branch do you run?
01:28<enouf>streuner: i concur - seems it's a 2.6.18-ish issue
01:29-!-dmz [] has joined #debian
01:30<enouf>Steven_M: Etch (4.0) / Oldstable is still supported, (and likely will be through ~02/2010)
01:30<streuner>thats why it mentioned/fixed at all in Debian...

01:32<enouf>follow any one of the CVEs listed
01:33<enouf>Steven_M: i presume, it's being worked on - have you looked/joined debian-security-announce mailing list?
01:33<Steven_M>enouf: streuner yeah, that's why I'm worried

01:46<drakeman>hey people, the only way to edit the options in gnome-panel is with gconf editor? there is no a way to do it trough xml file or somethink similar?
01:46<chealer>Steven_M: if you use linux-image-2.6.26-1-amd64, I'm asking your version of that package
01:47<Steven_M>how do I find out?

02:29<washi>I have a small problem: using debian testing, kde and emacs; writing ruby code - yes, finally settled on ruby
02:29<washi>I prefer emacs to kate, nut the latter has fr better syntax highlighting
02:29<washi>so what I want is the highlighting of the second in the first
02:29<washi>my q is
02:29-!-streuner_ [] has quit [Quit: Verlassend]
02:30<washi>is there a way to convert the xml file into elisp
02:30<washi>I mean the kate xml file with ruby highlighting conf
02:30-!-jas [] has joined #debian
02:30<washi>because I don't feel like writing 500+ lines of xml into elisp

02:33<dasneek>hey guys
02:33<jas>hi all
02:35<jas>cexplain washi : automated way to reach what?
02:36<washi>I mean
02:36<washi>using debian testing, emacs
02:36<washi>writing ruby code
02:36<washi>I like Kate highlighting
02:36<washi>and prefer emacs,
02:36<washi>I am faster with it
02:37<washi>I want kate ighlighting into emacs
02:37-!-streuner [] has joined #debian
02:37<washi>to do it,
02:37<dasneek>our school is in this online vote contest with another school.
02:37<dasneek>and were in second place.
02:37<washi>I have the kate xml file
02:37<dasneek>but the other shcool has a bot to fill out the vote for them! fast!
02:37<washi>but i need to convert it into elisp
02:38<jas>is a conf file?
02:38<washi>xml conf file, for ruby highlighting
02:38<washi>in kate
02:38<washi>I don't know any elisp
02:38<washi>and don't want to write 500+ lines of xml into elisp by hand
02:39<jas>u have to re-imlpemet xml syntax to emacs conf
02:39<Hideo>washi: I don't use emacs, but have you try "apt-cache search emacs ruby" ??
02:39<jas>emacs conf is in xml?
02:39<washi>no, everything in emacs is lisp dialect. emacs lisp
02:39<washi>I have installed ruby-mode for emacs
02:39<washi>I have highlighting
02:40<washi>but it is very poor
02:40<washi>better without any such
02:40<Hideo>ah ok, nvm then
02:40<jas>find whwre emacs read xml to highlit ruby-code and then re-implement as u want!
02:41<washi>jas: I cannot read that?
02:41<washi>what do you mean?
02:41<washi>emacs does not grasp xml;
02:41<washi>it has tens of thousands elisp conf files
02:42<jas>if u dont want re-write bu hand code and code, however u must read the code, u can use copy&paste lol
02:42<[N]Sassi>DPS last spot gundrak normal summon right away
02:42<Hideo>washi: perhaps it's may be better if you ask in an emacs channel =P
02:43<washi>Hideo: I did
02:43<Hideo>oh idlers?
02:43<washi>they responded that
02:43-!-dasneek [] has left #debian []
02:43<washi>I need to either edit the emacs global mode or
02:43<washi>edit the ruby.el conf file
02:44<washi>but no-one heard of an automated way
02:44<washi>to be honest, I don't have days for this operation
02:44<jas>if emacs doesnt grasp (lol) xml find what emacs parse and re-implement by hand the xml code ...
02:46<jas>u cant have your brain to an automated way in computers
02:48<jas>if doesnt exist an automated code translator xml>emacs conf sintax code
02:48<washi>jas, I got that; maybe there is no automated way and emacs is made only for zen buddhists spending their lifetime learning a text editor
02:49<washi>what is so simple?
02:49<jas>use vi guy
02:49<washi>I have tried, but... well, I found emacs to be more comfortable
02:50<washi>don't like swithching modes
02:50<washi>everything in reach
02:50<washi>probably I will leave emacs for non-x edit
02:51<washi>and use Kate when in X; although it is slower
02:51<jas>emacs make a compute slow .... in this case the computer are our way to have a knowledge no emacs
02:51<washi>I have heard that vi highlighting is no better btw
02:51<jas>about emacs*
02:52<jas>i dont write emacs cose sorry
02:53<washi>vi user?
02:53<jas>ask to manteiners
02:54<jas>me? i use vi when is necessary
02:54<washi>well, actually already filed a bug report

05:22<quaker66>hi. I am compiling E17 on Debian Sid - i386 and python bindings failed. It said cython failed because of "close failed: Errno 9: Bad file descriptor", this happens only on sid-i386, on sid-amd64 and lenny/squeeze-amd64/i386 it builts OK. It is a chrooted environment created by pbuilder.
05:22<locklace>some info on what version of debian you're using and what you updated would also not be amiss
05:22<quaker66>Is it a bug in sid-i386 python or am i doing something bad?
05:23-!-manphiz [~dxy@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
05:23<quaker66>that Bad file descriptor error happens also when i install gstreamer because it uses os.popen or when i run os.popen('echo test') in python in sid-i386
05:23<quaker66>host system is Debian Lenny - amd64

09:41<oznt>hi, I made a silly mistake: I earased the windows partition on my laptop and grub is messed up ... can someone guide me through how to restore grub ? I could only boot to the computer with SLAX on usb with grub on it
09:41<oznt>I'm really lost, tried all sort of stuff but nothing worked so far

09:44<new-kernel_>hello guys, i need help.. Im using Squeeze AMD64 an i have compiled the new 2.6.29-3 kernel.. its my first kernel compiling and i cant install ati drivers on it
09:44<locklace>oznt: that's if you need to recover partitions. if you don't and you're happy with your current partition table, you can install grub normally
09:45<locklace>new-kernel_: what do you mean "install ati drivers on it", framebuffer?
09:46<oznt>locklace, yes ok. the thing is like this, I have a computer with no cdrom. I booted slax, and removed the windows partition - this changes all the partition table and mbr, now grub there, but it is not functioning, i get error 15
09:46-!-__iron [] has joined #debian
09:47<locklace>oznt: removing a partition shouldn't affect the other partitions or the mbr boot code
09:49-!-upsy [] has joined #debian
09:49-!-FilipeMaia [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:49<locklace>oznt: anyway, to resolve that error you'll have to reinstall grub, two options: 1, boot from anything bootable with a loader that will let you load the kernel from your linux partition; 2, boot from any rescue image and do it from there
09:50<new-kernel_>i follow this tutorial to make it (error included):
09:51<new-kernel_>well, on this new kernel there is no way to install by apt, so i followed this tutorial to make my drivers... (AMD64)
09:51-!-FilipeMaia [] has joined #debian
09:52<new-kernel_>how to solve it?
09:53-!-Dvius4 [] has joined #debian
09:53<oznt>locklace, i am using a slax now on this laptop, can you guid me trough option one ? I tried chrooting to it but I am not really skilled in it
09:54<Dvius4>hey all
09:55<oznt>btw, every time i removed windows from a computer which had grub I somehow ended with problem with grub, I just keep forgeting how dangerous it is :-(

09:55<new-kernel_> i follow this tutorial to install ATI Drivers on new kernel (AMD64) (error included):
09:56<Dvius4>oznt - have you tried Virtual Box or similar? saves the trouble of all diff installs etc
09:56<Dvius4>What are you actually doing though? :) Installing which version slax on what laptop
09:56-!-bighornram [~bighornra@] has joined #debian
09:57<new-kernel_> i follow this tutorial to install ATI Drivers on new kernel (Squeeze AMD64) (error included):
09:57<oznt>Dvius4, I have virtual box on my laptop, this a friends laptop, he ask me to remove windows... so I did :-( but messed up grub, now I booted into slax so I could rescue the situation
09:58<oznt>now the question is how do I elegantly restore grub with out reinstalling debian
09:58<Dvius4>Is it X that isnt starting - or the WM so to speak?
09:58<Dvius4>Well the very first thing I would do oznt - is clone the hard disk on another system
09:59<Dvius4>as its not ur pc - secondly have you tried Checking your X conf and various other confs?
09:59<oznt>Dvius4, how is this going to help ? I know it's possible to restore grub from a live cd. I actually did it once, but I had help from someone so I don't know how to do it again
09:59<oznt>Dvius4, it's grub error 15, way way before X11
09:59<Dvius4>you may just simply need to command line remove grub and reinstall it to MBR or /home - or whatever you choose
10:00<bighornram>I have gdesklets installed in gnome with radar applet. ( in squeeze) When you click the radar screen in the applet imagemagick opens with the full size image to view. I'm having an issue where imagemagick opens for only a split second then closes. Would anyone have any ideas how to troubleshoot this?
10:00<Dvius4>ok so it's pure grub
10:00<gsimmons>!tell oznt -about fixmbr
10:00-!-usr_colin{irssi} [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
10:00<Dvius4>have you tried various MBR restoration tools?
10:00<Dvius4>IE - hirens 9.7 mbr tools etc
10:01<oznt>Dvius4, there should be a way to chroot into debian from the live cd, and then fix grub
10:01<oznt>I just don't know how to do it
10:01<Dvius4>hmm not sure with that method
10:02<Dvius4>one tedious way may actually be to install ubuntu - and when it partitions it will add an entry (This is the long and wrong way prob but may work) ----- sounds like a pain
10:02<locklace>oznt: the situation is very simple, there's no need to copy the drive or use mbr/partition restore tools as long as the current partition table is fine
10:02<Dvius4>I've done that before
10:02<locklace>oznt: anyway, i haven't used slax, what kind of bootloader does it have
10:03-!-boris_ [~boris@] has joined #debian

10:03<Dvius4>Grub 15 is usually when it can't find the partition IIRC
10:03<Dvius4>it's there but just dont find it
10:04<locklace>oznt: if you can boot with something that allows you to get a grub commandline, you can use the grub cli to boot the kernel from the existing partition

10:11<oznt>i chrooted into debian, i can run debian commands i think
10:12<locklace>did you mount --bind /dev and /tmp first
10:12<oznt>locklace, no. how do I do that ?
10:13<oznt>that would really explain why i can't install grub to hd0 inside the console, he says device does not exist
10:14<locklace>"mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev" and the same for /tmp, assuming the hd root partition is mounted as /mnt
10:15<locklace>that's kind of a weird partition table, btw
10:15<oznt>locklace, why ?
10:16<locklace>windows extended partition, and out-of-order linux logical partitions
10:18<oznt>i don't understand what I supposed to do. I need to mound /dev/sda5 (the root for debian) i created a mount point /debian/ so I type "mount /dev/sda5 debin/ --bind /dev" ?
10:18<oznt>locklace, well don't forget, that computer did have windows there, and that the partition table we could create with out removing the completly all the data from there...
10:19-!-bighornram [~bighornra@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
10:19<locklace>mount it normally under /debian as you've already done
10:20<locklace>then after that, "mount --bind /dev /debian/dev"
10:20-!-zevarito [] has joined #debian
10:20<locklace>you should also mount the boot partition under that, i guess that would be /dev/sda1
10:21-!-bja [] has joined #debian
10:21<oznt>there is no boot partition
10:21<locklace>so what's /dev/sda1 then
10:22<locklace>never mind, i don't even want to know
10:22<oznt>just data
10:22<oznt>ok, i chrooted into debian, and I'm in the grub console
10:22<locklace>anyway, once you're done with the binds and in the chroot, you can run grub-install or the grub shell

13:49<Nazcafan>bja, I agree, but sometimes, you don't have the choice

13:53<deniz>valdyn, locklace isnt it us the total? cuz it looks like similar numbers to system monitor
13:54<valdyn>deniz: %sy is commonly very low
13:54<bja>deniz: man pages are your stronges ally I think it won't hurt you if ocasionally you read one

14:38<omnom>it fails to detect dhcp while it's working perfectly and worked as a charm in debian right before I start reinstalling
14:38<locklace>omnom: any luck switching to another vt and setting the interface up manually
14:40<omnom>locklace: when i switch to another vt I'm stuck with a minimal busybox and only a handful of command. I have no clue how to set up network without ifconfig or ip

14:41<sney`>ifconfig is always there but sometimes it isn't in PATH

14:41<omnom>locklace: give me a minute I'll look for it
14:41<locklace>omnom: think it's just a matter of finding ifconfig and setting your interface up manually; dhcp in an installer is nothing more than a nicety
14:42<omnom>locklace: nope, sbin only has chroot, fdisk, sfdisk, debootstrap, run-debootstrap and tzsetup
14:42<locklace>check other dirs. /usr/sbin? don't remember the installer layout
14:42<sney`>that is strange, maybe in /usr/sbin or /usr/local/sbin
14:43<sney`>or just find / -iname ifconfig
14:43<omnom>I try setting up the interface manually inside the installer but still no network.
14:43<locklace>also, if you have trouble with this installer i'd say just try the lenny installer, there's really no value in using a different one

14:47<sney`>but no network... I missed the beginning, but is your network hardware unusual in any way?

14:52<locklace>xyem: like i said, testing lags just enough behind sid to sidestep critical bugs and ensure internal dependencies are sane.
14:52<sney`>basically testing is if you want to tinker, but you still occasionally need support with your tinkering
14:52*rah pokes firefox
14:53<Hideo>xyem: yes testing would probably be best since it's not old and is stable enought
14:53<xyem>Annoyingly, I have actually managed to convert both my fathers machines to Linux ( Ubuntu )
14:53<omnom>xyem: if you want to dive deep end you might want to give sidux a try
14:53<sney`>and unstable is for when you can tinker all by your lonesome
14:53<xyem>Then Jaunty started ruining it..
14:53<xyem>He's now trying Mint
14:53<sney`>and you have your unix beard and everything

14:55<locklace>mibman: also check out samhain

14:55<xyem>sney`: It wasn't too much of an issue because you can get it operational.. but my current setup pretty much requires wireless to access the internet ( no wired connection to router )
14:56<sney`>ahh, so you need it to install
14:56<locklace>mibman: snort is also a very good NIDS
14:56-!-angasule [~angasule@] has joined #debian

14:56-!-javatexan [] has joined #debian
14:56<mibman>locklace: Thanks man, I'll go check those two out. Won't firestarter be sufficient for the firewalling/ iptables? I've no experience manually tinkering with those yet.
14:56*xyem is quite fond of minimal installations
14:56<locklace>xyem: i run testing with a custom kernel (currently 2.6.30rc4); that's a trivial thing to do and often necessary if you have newish hardware
14:57<sney`>debian can do any kind of install over a network, the netinst is the recommended method these days...
14:57<xyem>locklace: I imagine the Aspire 5930G is regarded as newish hardware
14:57<locklace>xyem: so just install testing and then get yourself a new kernel. two steps: first try, install the 2.6.29 kernel from sid. if that's not enough, get your 2.6.30rc5 sources from and build your own, it's straightforward
14:57<sney`>the netbooks seem to generally have good linux support
14:58<xyem>Unfortunately, I blew my front USB port on my Aspire :-(
14:58<locklace>mibman: there are a ton of packages that act as layers on top of iptables. my advice, don't use any of them yet (except possibly ferm)
14:58<xyem>Linux detects something has been inserted but it isn't operational
14:58<omnom>mibman: I don't recommend firestarter sometimes it generates GB of log and fill /var to death
14:59<omnom>mibman: maybe something like guarddog
14:59<mibman>locklace: Haven't heard of ferm. Will check it out.

15:06<locklace>mibman: well sshd (the ssh server) won't be installed anyway unless you install it
15:06<xyem>Would I be lambasted here if I admitted to thinking Compiz is awesome?
15:06<valdyn>Mir_: debian doesnt have much in common with woody now
15:06<action09>mibman you can use portnocking safely

15:07<sney`>shut up, portknocker!
15:07<action09>mibman it's a way to send a specially crafted packet to a box and open a service.
15:07<action09>sney :p
15:08<action09>mibman this way services like ssh can be accessed with the correct combination
15:08<fxiny>portknocking is amazing

15:12<xyem>ml|: so tar/netcat ?
15:12<mibman>locklace: It's a router I think. Not too familiar with NAT, etc.
15:12<valdyn>mibman: in debian, if you do not do something stupid, like operating a php website, you do not get "cracked" on a desktop system
15:12<mibman>My ip is dynamic as far as I know.
15:12<valdyn>mibman: so you probably just had behaviour that you didnt understand
15:12<ml|>tar then use rsync like you said

15:40<xyem>locklace, is there a reason why it isn't in the Lenny kernel? Just age or...?
15:40<locklace>xyem: yes, it appeared in 2.6.27 and the lenny kernel is .26. so use the di-backport installer, which is .28

15:56<locklace>when i make/install some package like foo version 1.2.3 myself, foo-1.2.3, i put it in /sw/foo-1.2.3 and built it with --prefix=/sw/foo-1.2.3 and then make and make install, so everything it installs goes inside that directory

15:59<xyem>locklace, does that create the lib/bin etc directories under /sw/foo-1.2.3 ?
15:59<locklace>xyem: yes, that's the idea
16:00<xyem>What are the benefits/drawbacks of doing it like that as opposed to just installing it under /usr ?
16:00<locklace>xyem: well installing it under /usr is definitely a bad idea, because it can conflict with files owned by the package system

16:01<Hideo>chealer: I maybe wrong, but source isn't even in Debian yet?
16:03<locklace>xyem: just a different approach, the one i mentioned is more of a pain to administer sometimes (dealing with library rpaths can be annoying, and you don't have a common bin directory to put in your path, although it is easy to make one with symlinks), but has the advantage of cleanly separating every custom package from the rest of the system, and makes it very easy to get rid of one

20:19<bcw>ok, i've got the video driver set up, the debian package works fine :) but now i'm trying to get wireless networking to work, so far with no success. lspci gives "Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x" and ifconfig shows it up, i've followed the wiki page but it doesn't show in nm-editor. network-admin says "Disconnected"
20:20<xyem>bcw, if I recall correctly, you need the ath5k module for that chipset
20:20<bcw>i have that
20:20<xyem>I believe my fathers laptop has it
20:20<bcw>i did an lsmod and it's loaded

20:22<xyem>What are you using to configure it? wpa-supplicant?
20:22<bcw>i was using nm-editor and network-admin

20:24<Praxis>I've read that wicd does a great job managing WPA for a GUI, I have the repository, but haven't tried it yet.
20:24<xyem>Not sure if I can help, my wireless is managed by ifup/ifdown and wpa_supplicant..
