06:28<pgimeno>I have a package with a config file that I want to overwrite and I want to regenerate it. I've tried 'apt-get install --reinstall', but the config file is not written, even if 'dpkg -l' lists it. How can I get the file, other than (1) purge and reinstall, or (2) extract the package?
06:29<pgimeno>BTW, I've also tried dpkg-reconfigure to no avail.

06:32<hachi>dpkg --purge --force-all package?
06:32*dpkg drinks a glass of salty water, sticks his fingers down his throat and throws up --force-all package all over hachi and ml|...
06:32<hachi>then you just apt-get install it again
06:32<hachi>or even just apt-get -f install
06:32<hachi>and it will solve the dep
06:32<hachi>but really
06:32<hachi>if the file is listed as a conffile
06:33-!-alionka [] has joined #debian
06:33<hachi>dpkg should have asked you if you wanted to overwrite it
06:33<dpkg>hachi: i haven't a clue
06:33<hachi>and if it was a package file it should have overwritten it
06:33<pgimeno>dunno, maybe it's broken somehow

06:34<hachi>seems unlikely to me
06:34-!-humberto [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
06:34<hachi>if the file is a package file, is it diverted?
06:34<hachi>see dpkg-divert
06:35<pgimeno>how do I look? dpkg-divert --list?
06:35<hachi>I dunno, check the manpage
06:35<hachi>that's what I always do
06:35<pgimeno>not diverted
06:35<hachi>is there any chance you would say what package this is
06:35<hachi>and what file?
06:36<hachi>you know, so that it's not a hypothetical package... but a real one that I can look at
06:36-!-icf7 [] has joined #debian
06:36<pgimeno>package is xmame-common, it has /etc/xmame/xmamerc
06:36-!-avathar [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
06:37<hachi>oh, here's a shot in the dark
06:37<hachi>move the file to a new name
06:37<hachi>then do the reinstall
06:37<hachi>see if it creates it for you?
06:37<pgimeno>that's what I did, I renamed the whole /etc/xmame to /etc/xmame.bak, and it recreated /etc/xmame and a couple subdirs but not /etc/xmame/xmamerc
06:38<hachi>that sounds like the --reinstall failed
06:38<hachi>did it throw any errors or messages?
06:39<pgimeno>since it's in non-free I was guessing it might be broken somehow
06:39<hachi>well, I dunno then... it's listed as a normal package file, so the --reinstall would have tried to do it

06:40<hachi>I'm not too up on the debug techniques, so I'd probably find the .deb file on disk that it's installing from
06:40<hachi>doing dpkg -c on it
06:40<hachi>to see if the file on disk actually claims to the file you expect
06:41<hachi>maybe run apt-get under strace -f and watch for it trying to do it
06:41<hachi>you could maybe do an `apt-get clean`
06:41<pgimeno>running dpkg -L xmame-common shows /etc/xmame/xmamerc
06:41<pgimeno>hm, I like the strace idea
06:41<hachi>not -L sir
06:42<hachi>dpkg -c /var/cache/apt/something something

06:42<hachi>but an easy thing you can try
06:42<hachi>apt-get clean
06:42<hachi>and do the reinstall
06:43<pgimeno>yep, it's there: -rw-r--r-- root/root 1405 2008-06-19 09:07 ./etc/xmame/xmamerc

08:23<Gathond>seems ok

08:24-!-wooj [] has joined #debian
08:25<Gathond>you don't happen to use some composite rendering manager?
08:25<supaman>well ... I am just wondering .. was looking through the debian-user mailing list and saw some talk there about frambuffers, decided to check my system and saw I had none ... got me wondering
08:25<supaman>Gathond: nope ... just basic X with Gnome running ..
08:25<supaman>not the default wm that comes with Gnome ... but openbox or something like that ... can't quite remember
08:26<Gathond>well I don't have any /dev/fb* either on this laptop with nvidias binary driver and full 3d acceleration
08:26<Gathond>so it is not required as such
08:26<Gathond>I would try looking for any WW or EE messages in the log file
08:26<supaman>obviously not .. but the postlist said the debian kernel had framebuffers built into it ...
08:26<Gathond>and see if any of those gives a hint about it
08:27<Gathond>supaman: hmmm it does actually, I remember the console changing recently to some framebuffer stuff
08:27<locklace>supaman: framebuffer is independent of x (unless you're using Xfb itself)
08:28<supaman>locklace: ahhh ... yes, that was what the posts were about .. the switching to console issue
08:28<supaman>which works fine for me
08:28<Gathond>doesn't for me, but I put that fault squarely on nvidias incompetence
08:29<supaman>but strange thing also here is that if I use kernel 2.29 (I am running 2.26 now) then X completely screws up
08:29<locklace>your problem is something else, maybe x driver issue, maybe application-level problem
08:29<locklace>supaman: not that strange, .29 has dri
08:29<supaman>locklace: which means?
08:30<supaman>Gathond: yeh, nvidia seems to have problems with framebuffers .. tried the open source version, nv?
08:30<Gathond>I did, and that works
08:31<locklace>lots of dri/drm/kms changes in more recent kernels, specificially affecting intel drivers
08:31<Gathond>however 3d acceleration is a nogo
08:31<locklace>you'll have to search around, and inspecting your xorg.log in detail would be wise
08:31<Gathond>so it is essentially a choice, having the ability of going X -> console -> X or 3d acceleration
08:31<Gathond>as I never use the former, the choice is not that hard:)
08:31<supaman>Gathond: might want to have a look at
08:32<supaman>Gathond: get your meaning :)
08:32<supaman>locklace: I see a few warnings there ... and one EE ... intel(0): Failed to pin xv buffer
08:33<locklace>what does xvinfo return
08:33<Gathond>supaman: I doubt that is related to your poor performance, that EE one may be though

08:42<moodindigo>hi! Is there a place where packages go between NEW and incoming? deja-dup is gone from NEW but not in incoming yet. Or was it rejected? (ITP-Bug #506590)

08:43<locklace>supaman: seems ok to me, is it only the browser that gives you trouble?
08:44<supaman>locklace: no ... not really ... like when I was copying this info to pastebin then I ran the commands in gnome terminal and copying the whole text took my CPU way up as my blocking scrolled down the terminal (it was several terminals high, so there was a lot of scrolling)

08:47<fxiny>some firefox extensiuons files were not regular files at all , it happened three times
08:48<locklace>supaman: well, only two things i can suggest; 1, look for a new driver or driver version to try, ask around in an intel x channel if there is one; 2, try newer kernel again and debug that problem
08:48<supaman>fxiny: well .. don't think thats going to help me since the problem goes beond FF

08:48<fxiny>supaman: i understand but i had the same problem : 100% cpu and such
08:49<locklace>supaman: eg arch is using x 1.6 now
08:49<supaman>fxiny: and did it fix the problem for you?
08:49<supaman>locklace: ahh ... good suggestion
08:49<supaman>then I can copy the xorg.conf from there

08:54<locklace>it's definitely a filesystem problem, not an app problem
08:54<locklace>nothing an app does should ever be able to cause fs corruption
08:55<fxiny>locklace: one was some extension translation sub dir
08:55<locklace>you should run e2fsck with -c -c (twice for the rw test) and then use the smartmontools

10:40<bert>but if I login through xdm, session is in english ...
10:40<bert>a way t configure xdm with good locales ?
10:40<dpkg>Use `dpkg-reconfigure locales' to get it up and running. This generates locale definitions and also edits /etc/default/locale which sets the $LANG environment variable at login time.
10:40-!-legnaleurc [] has joined #debian
10:40<bert>valdyn, my locales are ok

10:50<bert>same thing for iceweasel
10:51<Torsten_W>bert, dpkg-reconfigure locales
10:51<valdyn>bert: why is your locale different to whats in /etc/locale
10:51<Torsten_W>set there default to fr
10:51<valdyn>bert: why is your locale different to whats in /etc/default/locale ?
10:52<valdyn>bert: i.e., where did you set it manually?
10:52<bert>juste trying to put some export LC_ALL=... in some config files
10:52<valdyn>bert: no what?
10:53<valdyn>bert: fr_FR is NOT the same as fr_FR.UTF-8
10:53<valdyn>bert: we saw that fr_FR.UTF-8 obviously works, i cant tell if it works for fr_FR without you trying that one
10:53<bert>I do a dkpg-reconfigure locales from console (ctrl-alt-F1)

10:55<bert>I choose only fr_FR.UTF-8 and I choose that as default
10:56<bert>then it says locales-ll installed, skipping locales generation
10:56<bert>no I'll restart my session with a xdm restart
10:56<valdyn>bert: verfiy the setting in /etc/default/locale

13:32<yappa>okay... is there any reason why one should use a Python web framework if you can develop one in C++? I know this is a vague question, but I wonder why there are so many Python frameworks and almost none in C++. Sure, the C++ stdlib is very limited, but there are numerous libraries to extend its functionality. I've even developed a small web app myself that is capable of handling file uploads, post and get requests, etc... any thoughts on why C++
13:32<yappa>or any other compiled programming language is so rarely used, given that they are much faster and can be deployed on much cheaper hardware and still be as fast as a PHP/python equivalent.

13:35<omnom>yappa: my guess is it has something to do with python cuts dev time which allows for more testing. also c++ learning curve is steeper than python's
13:35<locklace>yappa: it would take me longer than you have to enumerate the reasons why c++ is painful.
13:36<omnom>I did some c++ a few years back and I have been doing my best to avoid it since then, I'm currently looking into python and I'm pretty pleased
13:37<locklace>i guess if it's not already clear to you, the best thing is to just go ahead and start trying to develop your framework with it
13:37<locklace>when you get sufficiently frustrated, you'll know there are alternatives readily available
13:38-!-xlotlu [~john@] has joined #debian
13:38<yappa>well, I kind of get your point. but the reason why you think I'd get frustrated, is because C++ is so low level and you have to implement a lot of things yourself that Python already does for you, am I right?
13:38<xyem>Gah, waiting for Debian install is boring
13:38<xyem>Good job I have >1 computer
13:39<locklace>xyem: if you did the right thing and only picked base install it should be very quick
13:39<abrotman>goes even quicker if you disconnect the network and do that later :)
13:39<xyem>locklace, not when it decides it wants to format all 220GB because I chose encryption
13:39<locklace>yappa: no, low-levelness is not the main problem; c++ can be made rather high-level these days (albeit in a threadbare way)
13:40<omnom>yappa: c++ is undecipherable, python enforces readability
13:40<xyem>locklace, despite the fact my hard-drive has already been fully formatted and used with encryption before..

13:43<omg_onoez>what am i doing wrong?
13:43<xyem>locklace, why? That is how I set it up before..
13:43<locklace>xyem: your boot partition needs to be ordinary for the bootloader to handle, and putting root on lvm/swraid/crypt is asking for trouble and also locks you into initrd
13:43<xyem>omnom, python enforces you to do what *it* wants, not what *you* want. For that reason, I will always find it "inferior" to Perl :-)

13:44<arthurfurlan>what's the package that contains the command "mail"?

13:45<arthurfurlan>I installed the "postfix" but I can't find the "mail" command
13:45<omnom>I was talking about the way to write indented code that ensure anyone can read any source, then of course python is not a different approach than perl. I like both cause they complement each other.
13:45<locklace>arthurfurlan: it's bsd-mailx by default
13:46<locklace>arthurfurlan: but it's an alternatives thing
13:46<omnom>oops remove that "not" from my sentence.

14:10<omnom>xyem: there's no backdoor on the specific kind of thinkpad hardware I'm talking about.
14:10<christoph>locklace, reading the logs indeed is often interesting, there are strange ways of breaking stuff one has never ever thought of but that are prevented in software
14:11<mETz_>christoph: there's lots ofother ways to reject things but I think most of them are more costly than simply rejecting unknown recipients
14:11<mETz_>rbl, policyd etc.
14:11<xyem>omnom, does nearly everyone in the world have the ability to verify that?
14:11<mETz_>locklace: is it a good idea to drop whole blocks at the netfilter level?
14:12<locklace>mETz_: it is if you know what you're doing
14:12-!-dr|z3d [~dr|] has joined #debian
14:13<mETz_>I don't have a list of "bad subnets" so I probably wouldn't know what I'm doing ;)
14:13<mETz_>but the tries in my postfix logs always seem to come from the same providers
14:14<locklace>mETz_: the whole thing is unavoidably complicated. in order to "solve" the problem you have to work at multiple levels, packet-filtering layer is one.
14:14-!-rodrigo_ [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
14:14<mETz_>not to mention all the stupid tries to offload mail for a domain served by my webserver which is NOT the mx of that domain *g*
14:14<locklace>mETz_: at that layer you can start with the no-brainers like filtering bogons, obvious rfc1918 blocks and unallocated ranges that should never be sending

14:47<dpkg>Ubuntu is based on Debian, but it is not Debian, and it is unlikely to live up to Debian's standards (see <Debian policy>). Only Debian is supported on #debian. Use #ubuntu ( instead. Even if the channel happens to be less helpful, support for distributions other than Debian is offtopic on #debian. See also <based on debian>.
14:47<abrotman>tomas: ubuntu support belongs in #ubuntu on
14:48<sney>you could still apt-get upgrade
14:48<sney>y espera :)
14:48<xyem>Is logging in as root preferred instead of using sudo in Debian?
14:48<sney>but why ubuntu is giving you 715 updates, well, we don't know
14:48<ml|>xyem: yes
14:49<xyem>ml|, I'm somewhat surprised..
14:49-!-definy [~definy@] has joined #debian
14:49<sney>I just do both
14:49<tomas>mm ok
14:49<sney>if I'm doing a whole bunch of maintenance stuff at once, I su -
14:49<sney>but if I'm just running one command then I sudo
14:49<xyem>ml|, I prefer sudo and if I need to do multiple things.. 'sudo su -l'
14:50<ml|>I use su for everything just use sudo for shutdown under normal user
14:50<sney>they both have their uses so they're both included by default
14:50-!-tomas [~tomas@] has left #debian [Saliendo]
14:51<sney>and scsudo is good if you have a bunch of sysadmins maintaining one system
14:51<sney>so if someone breaks something you can find out who it was
14:51<ml|>i don't think sudo is install by default
14:51<xyem>scsudo? That's a new one to me
14:51<xyem>ml|, it isn't
14:51<xyem>ml|, in my experience of minimal installations anyway
14:51<sney>it's in one of the tasks I guess
14:51<ml|>xyem: right in minimal
14:51<sney>anyway, scsudo makes you type in a reason for using root access
14:52<ootput>which package is that?
14:52<sney>I don't know if it was a custom thing or what but my last sysadmin job it was in our RHEL and Solaris systems
14:52<ootput>oh, solaris platform

15:32<dpkg>extra, extra, read all about it, purge is to completely wipe away a package, including its config files. Use aptitude purge [package] or if you already removed package with apt-get remove, and forgot config files you can use 'dpkg -P <package>' to remove configs. To purge all config files of all removed packages: aptitude purge '~c', or see <confmiss> about restoring individual config files.

15:47<jen_n>Sorry. I upgraded from testing to unstable; I'm running kernel 2.6.29-2-686 on a Lenovo Thinkpad T60. Somewhere in the course of the upgrade, my xorg.conf file got overwritten, and the new version is about three lines long; trying to regenerate it with dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg doesnt change it.
15:47<jen_n>Im not getting any terribly useful messages in any of the logs.

15:50<jen_n>Video card is Radeon Mobility X1400. I'm running unstable because i have another system thats running it fine, and running testing i keep having other problems so i thought it would be OK to go to unstable on this too.
15:50<mETz_>I think there was an approach with a standby kernel in memory

15:51<stuckey>abrotman: I'm getting this error with the package "ripit": Directory Template incorrect, caused eval to fail: Bad file descriptor at /usr/bin/ripit line 1333, <STDIN> line 30.
15:51<abrotman>jen_n: so paste your Xorg.0.log in a pastebin .. and what exactly doesn't work?
15:51<jen_n>The roblem im having is that when X starts, it just flickers a few times and then gives me a blank screen; no controls work and i have to reboot into single-user mode.
15:51<stuckey>jen_n: How did you configure X?
15:51<abrotman>!tell stuckey about bts
15:51<ml|>guess will have to wait for ksplice and see if that works
15:52<jen_n>stuckey: i didnt, this time. I let it autoconfigure.
15:52<locklace>jen_n: what x video driver
15:52<jen_n>abrotman: give me a sec, im not on the affected computer now so i have to move the log over. Is there a preferred pastebin on this channel?
15:52<locklace>!tell jen_n about paste
15:53<abrotman>and you can IRC from the CLI
15:53<jen_n>locklace: nothing is configured now. I dont know what driver im using. I had once tried fglrx but ditched it because it was flaky and i didnt need anything it offered.
15:54<jen_n>abrotman: I know i can IRC from the commandline but since im restarting the machine every two minutes its easier to do this

15:56<jen_n>(while we're at it, how can I get out of the frozen X to a console? alt-ctrl-f6 etc. doesnt respond)
15:56<dpkg>sysrq is, like, Alt-PrintScreen-<Key>. For a clean reboot with a semi-locked machine, try <Key> with s-u-b, s for sync, u for remount readonly and b for reBoot. See and kernel /Documentation/sysrq.txt See also <sysrqd>.
15:57<locklace>if that and ctrl-alt-backspace don't work then you're probably screwed, only other hope is magic sysrq

16:08<chealer>stuckey: just ask your question
16:08<ml|>xyem: maybe try backport first unless you want to upgrade anyways
16:08<jen_n>Solved! Someone on the mailing list suggested that it was because I had installed the fglrx drivers, but was using Radeon; even though i didnt call the fglrx drivers in the conf file, they stepped on each other.
16:08<stuckey>blarson: I sent the email that reportbug gave me.
16:08<jen_n>I removed these drivers and now X is working again.
16:09<chealer>!tell user01 about xwindows
16:09<locklace>jen_n: you mean you installed them manually rather than using the debian package?
16:09<m2rt>chealer: false alarm, I found the external monitor. But it doesn't show picture...
16:09<jen_n>locklace: no, i installed using the debian package.
16:09<m2rt>and again chealer I got it working :D
16:09<blarson>stuckey: but if you put another set of headers in front of reportbug's headers, it won't work.
16:09<stuckey>blarson: define "a set of headers"
16:10-!-xlotlu [~john@] has joined #debian
16:10<jen_n>but on the list i was told that X tries to use from the fglrx-driver package along with the radeon driver.
16:10<jen_n>So I have to use fglrx, or dump he fglrx-driver package, which would restore the normal
16:10<jen_n>So i did this and all is OK.
16:10<blarson>stuckey: Read RFC822
16:10<xyem>ml|, I'm going to be running testing anyway
16:11<stuckey>blarson: what's this?

19:04<bzed>locklace: ask in #debian-release whats up with it if you're really interested
19:04<interbird>xyem: i asked because of your question for wireless; and hardcoding a path is no good idea...
19:04<locklace>bzed: i'm not using it myself, but we've had several people run into it here - pretty dumb situation, either udev update should have been held back or cryptsetup update should have gone with it.
19:05<xyem>interbird, I didn't say anything about hard-coding a path
19:05<interbird>~/.gvfs/... is a hardcoded path
19:05<locklace>omnom: anyway, you can "fix" it for yourself by just downloading the sid cryptsetup .deb and installing it with dpkg -i
19:06<xyem>interbird, gvfs mounts can be accessed through ~/.gvfs ( eg. ~/.gvfs/server/path/to/file ) .. but Nautilus doesn't pass that path to applications, it passes the protocol path ( eg. smb://server/path/to/file )
19:06<xyem>Which, if the program is non-gnome, goes "I have no idea what you want me to do with this path, I don't recognise it"

19:10<locklace>omnom: hehe, yeah, already went down that road with someone else
19:10<interbird>xyem: not at all, but your statement about opening a file in the trash makes no sense and blaming non-gnome programs for not handling gvfs makes none too; no offense meant, i just want to help
19:11-!-DSFARGEG [] has left #debian []
19:11<xyem>interbird, how else am I supposed to see if the file I sent to trash is one I actually wanted to delete without opening it
19:11-!-lovetsa [~Ice@] has quit []
19:11<xyem>interbird, and it makes perfect sense when protocol paths don't provide any benefit over standard unix paths
19:11<interbird>xyem: by restoring it to you desktop; untrashing it...
19:12<xyem>interbird, or, alternatively, *just opening it from where it is*
19:12<xyem>interbird, then if I want to keep it, I restore it
19:12<xyem>interbird, if not, it goes bye bye
19:12<interbird>xyem: the last is your opinion; a virtual fs is because gnome also runs on non-unix systems; hence the need for virtual
19:13<xyem>interbird, doesn't excuse it from passing standard *nix paths when it can so it works with, you know, every *nix program under the sun
19:13<interbird>trying to open a file in the trash is like adding a sentence to a note you threw away
19:14<xyem>interbird, instead of just GNOME ones
19:14<omnom>T_T my brand new testing is gonna regress and lose lots of functionality for the next year until kde4 is more complete T_T
19:14<xyem>Can someone please explain to interbird why you might want to preview a trashed file before deleting it?
19:15<omnom>I kinda hoped kde4 would not hit testing before 4.4

19:32<interbird>omnom: i don't completely follow you; no-one is excluded and i agree with you that exclusion is wrong; but gnome does not dictate that; it just want to 'just work' for everyone and hide the 'powerstuff' for the ones able to find it.
19:32<HappyHater>hmm, so what can I do to get that .so file back so I can get to my desktop at least?
19:33<interbird>xyem: do your kernel-headers coply with your running kernel? (uname -a)
19:33<xyem>interbird, it excludes me from opening files in the trashcan with non-GNOME applications
19:34<xyem>interbird, yes, they do
19:34<interbird>xyem: i'm trying to be of help; why do you put me down ?
19:34<xyem>interbird, I'm not.. I'm putting GNOME down :)

19:35-!-azeem_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
19:35<omnom>interbird: showing/removing the trashcan from the desktop is not powerstuff. and some features are just dropped or not added for these reason. I believe gnome excludes a lot of usage because of the gap between basic usage and finding the hidden stuff. imho hiding and preventing people from using their computer the way they want is not a smart thing and not in the opensource spirit.
19:37<xyem>interbird, the first errors seems to be like "warning: pointer type void * used in arithmetic"
19:37<interbird>omnom: most people are not interested in using their computer to the fullest; they just want it to work. people interested to use their computer to the fullesst will fint the hidden possibilities.
19:37<omnom>anyways enough of this gnome ranting. no need to argue over this old stuff. gnome doesn't suit me I don't use it, if it suits you good for you.
19:37<xyem>interbird, later on, things like "kmem_cache_create() conftest failed!"
19:37<interbird>xyem: a warning is not an error; error messages break the compilation
19:37<xyem>interbird, that is the key point. When I use GNOME, it *doesn't work*
19:38<interbird>hmm, dunno that error

19:39<omnom>interbird: I'm interested in using my computer the way I want to do stuff I want. gnome doesn't allow this on purpose, so I ditched it for kde which is not perfect but at least allow me to do more stuff I want.
19:39<xyem>Might it be because I am using unstable kernel/headers and testing nvidia-kernel?
19:39<interbird>xyem: the compilation of nvidia removes directories on remote machines? told you so :-)
19:39<xyem>interbird, no, GNOME removes directories on remote machines

19:41<interbird>omnom: yes, but you are one that understands more about computers than average people. you want gnome to make it like it works for folks like you and disregard the newbies? then linux-desktop will never happen

19:45<xyem>interbird, no, hidden possibilities in plain text files
19:45<omnom>no choice. I've installed gnome on my grandpa computer, and he wants stuff to just work and not getting headaches. he calls me two times a week to help him do some advanced stuff such as putting the trashcan on the desktop.
19:45<interbird>omnom: i like to have a delete entry in my desktop menu, so i enable it in gconf; now i have a script for it; on any new install i run it and sets all my preferences
19:46<xyem>Or you open a text file, and insert a line that says {rm -f} <Delete> ?
19:46<amphi>xyem: who says it's an issue? plenty of people seem to like gnome
19:47<xyem>amphi, plenty of people seem to like Windows
19:47<interbird>omnom: well, you are the one that knows more, learn a bit how to manipulate gconf and yoy can put all your fathers wishes in a scripts that also works on a new installation

19:51<xyem>ml|, purged it

19:52<omnom>interbird: sadly it's not the path gnome people have chosen or any other desktop environment AFAIK.

19:52-!-nene [~lucas@] has joined #debian
19:52<dpkg>well, purge is to completely wipe away a package, including its config files. Use aptitude purge [package] or if you already removed package with apt-get remove, and forgot config files you can use 'dpkg -P <package>' to remove configs. To purge all config files of all removed packages: aptitude purge '~c', or see <confmiss> about restoring individual config files.
19:52-!-nene [~lucas@] has quit []
19:52<xyem>Sounds like a good way to get GNOME to do what I want
19:52<interbird>omnom: there are differntly compiled programs for gnome too; ones that include more options; you are not alone in what you think and the beauty of open-source it that someone makes it
19:53<xyem>Question is.. does it purge gconf?
19:53<ml|>no it's in ~
19:54<xyem>I am willing to bet that no, no it doesn't..

20:03<xyem>This is fine
20:03<xyem>When it works

20:04<xyem>duraperidol, thanks
20:04<xyem>duraperidol, which point would that be though?
20:04<interbird>xyem: no, abstraction is to reach the lowes level in a 'common way' implementable on different platforms.
20:04<xyem>interbird, except abstractions happens at higher levels, not lower
20:05<interbird>that's what i said

20:05<duraperidol>anyone in the mood to play ts?
20:05<interbird>implementation defines the level of reach
20:06<interbird>did'nt i say that ?
20:06<xyem>You said "uses" a common way
20:06<xyem>Abstractions use lots of different ways to provide a common way
20:06<omnom>the main problem here is that we're building on top of existing software and usage when we should explore new paradigm based on workflow and functionality. I find it odd that modern computing is still getting in the way of what the user wants to do.

20:08<xyem>Open a file in the trashcan? :)

20:29<interbird>chomwitt: why remove them? they take almost no place and may come in handy some time
20:29<omnom>chomwitt: you can remove the older one, but it's a good idea to keep a few kernels to have a fallback solution in case shit.

20:34<interbird>chomwitt: which i assume is grub...
20:35<interbird>chomwitt: if ever your running kernel fails, grub offers the possibilitie to boot an alternative (older) kernel...
20:36<interbird>chomwitt: if you remove an older kernel this will not be possible...
20:37<interbird>chomwitt: so, keeping the older kernels is kind-of a fall-back in problem situations; you could login to this channel and ask for help with this kernel you kept as a fallback

22:39<interbird>you can do a global script or a local (for a specific user); which one do you want ?

22:42<ed_debian>kamilin, A script is just a program. It doesn't have to have "program files" associated with it
22:43<ed_debian>kamilin, Usually "script" just means a small program but that's really subjective
22:43<interbird>for gnome gui-stuff is the sessions menu i posted
22:43<kamilin>i create a symbolic link at rc local and there i have to put a script
22:43<kamilin>that's what i've been told
22:44<interbird>abrotman: i know, just trying to pin-point what he wants...
22:44<abrotman>probably be easier in his native language
22:44<kamilin>lol maybe
22:45<kamilin>but i'm so noob at this i'm sorry if i'm saying many crazy things
22:45<kamilin>is like sessions menu
22:45<interbird>i've been told that windows is the only os available on netbooks but i don't believe it :-)
22:46<kamilin>but im looking an alternative way
22:46<interbird>global or for a specific user ?
22:46<interbird>and what do you want to start / do ?

22:50<kamilin>and after gui
22:50<interbird>hehe :-)
22:50<kamilin>u can add startup apps don't u?
