00:26<Supaplex>humm.. I don't know to be honest.
00:27<Supaplex>based on the iso image name, that looks right.
00:27<eduardo>But, that iso have's the full X11?
00:27<eduardo>or I need another cd to full install?
00:27<Supaplex>if it has xfce, it would have to have x11.
00:28<eduardo>But, it's a extension CD? or It's the full cd of debian, + xfce?
00:29<eduardo>And, what are the minimum to use debian?

01:04<joshua__>what is the name of the app that allows you to have a cursor in runlevel 3?
01:04-!-jm_ [] has joined #debian
01:04<dpkg>0 is halt, 1 is single user, 2, 3, 4, 5 are multiuser, 6 is reboot. By default 2, 3, 4 and 5 are identical (no graphic/non-graphic runlevels), but you can configure this if you wish. Read /usr/share/doc/sysvinit/*; read /etc/init.d/README; man update-rc.d; if that doesn't make sense, consider installing <rcconf> instead., or ask me about <startup>, or for a real twist, see <file-rc>
01:05<joshua__>well in the cli sorry....
01:06<Supaplex>on the console?
01:06<joshua__>yeah like when you are on ttyl1
01:06<Supaplex>as in the hardware cursor?
01:07<joshua__>i think so i remeber the app being something like pmb or something
01:07<Supaplex>humph. I'm stumped.
01:07<joshua__>my buddy showed it to me a ling time ago and i used it before i loaded the gui
01:08<joshua__>it allowed me to select text and if i click the third mouse button it pastes the selected text over to where the keybpard cursor is
01:09<joshua__>thats the one
01:10<snogglethorpe>hey, when you install a libxx-dbg package, how are you supposed to use the debug version of the library?

01:11<snogglethorpe>I though maybe something like "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/debug/usr/lib ldd proggie" but... that doesn't seem to output anything different than the usual output

01:15<snogglethorpe>Supaplex: hmm actrually i'm interesting in valgrind
01:15<Supaplex>if it's as smart as gdb, perhaps it'll be fine. dunno myself.
01:16-!-fares [] has left #debian []
01:17<snogglethorpe>the thing is, -dbg libs do basically seem to come with full libraries, which are unstripped
01:18<Supaplex>I think they're only the symbols. I don't think the code resides in them.

01:21<snogglethorpe>valgrind does seem to pick it up
01:21<snogglethorpe>dunno whether the code's coming from there or not though
01:21<jm_>ldd wouldn't output anything different, but it will make a differnce for a debugger etc.
01:23<jm_> debugging options will show where symbols are coming from too

02:19<jm_>aaron__: grep ipv6 /proc/modules
02:19<aaron__>jm_, not getting no output
02:19<jm_>aaron__: so you didn't load it
02:20<aaron__>i did
02:20<aaron__>darkplanet:/home/aaron# modprobe ipv6
02:20<jm_>or wait, not getting no output would mean you ar egetting output?
02:20-!-steven [] has joined #debian
02:21<aaron__>jm_, i actually load up the module
02:21-!-cahoot [~radix@] has joined #debian

02:22<aaron__>what do you say jm_ ?
02:22-!-steven [] has quit []
02:22<jm_>aaron__: check what kernel says after you modprobe it
02:22<aaron__>jm_, i get no errors
02:23<jm_>aaron__: how did you check?
02:23<aaron__>after i do modprobe ipv6
02:23<jm_>yes, but how?
02:23<aaron__>nothing really happens
02:23<jm_>run dmesg
02:24<aaron__>i did
02:25<aaron__>that's odd
02:25<jm_>that makes no sense to me
02:25<aaron__>jm_, ?
02:26<jm_>where is modprobe coming from?
02:26-!-AbsintheSyringe2 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:27<aaron__>jm_, ?
02:27<jm_>aaron__: !
02:28<aaron__>what do you mean by that
02:28<jm_>which modprobe
02:28<jm_>another thing I can think of is the module is blacklisted
02:29<aaron__>how can i see that?
02:29<aaron__>if the module is blacklisted?
02:29<jm_>grep ipv6 /etc/modprobe.d/*
02:29<aaron__>/etc/modprobe.d/aliases:# alias net-pf-10 ipv6
02:29<aaron__>/etc/modprobe.d/aliases:alias net-pf-10 ipv6

02:29-!-aaron__ was kicked from #debian by debhelper [use the paster bot or #flood]
02:29<jm_>perhaps modprobe -v will also show something
02:29-!-aaron__ [] has joined #debian
02:29<jm_>that is a blacklist
02:29-!-chitchat [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:29<aaron__>how do i remove it?
02:30<jm_>edit the file and comment it out
02:30<jm_>but first do modprobe -v ipv6
02:30<aaron__>install /bin/true
02:30<jm_>ok that's helpful for next time someone has similar problem, thank you
02:31<aaron__>jm_, so now what?
02:31<jm_>aaron__: <jm_> edit the file and comment it out
02:31<aaron__># alias net-pf-2 ipv4
02:31<aaron__># alias net-pf-10 ipv6
02:31<jm_>no the install ipv6 one

04:23<ruben>Ok, one mo
04:23<ruben>Also, what is foo?
04:23<ruben>I see it everywhere
04:23<dpkg>it has been said that foo is probably the first metasyntactic variable, it's a placeholder for some other term. See <> and <bar>, also read RFC3092.
04:24<Lish>in c++ when i use int main() and i use return 0; then i return the value and it will be succes , what return 1 does!? (not in function)
04:25<ruben>aptitude -f install just removes the package again

05:57<BabaBlackSheep>hello what does he --prefix option do??
05:57<BabaBlackSheep>Nemoder, what exactly does a --prefix option do??
05:58<jlouis>BabaBlackSheep: that depends on what program you are talking about
05:58<jlouis>configure scripts?
05:59<Nemoder>yes, it depends on the program, but usually it lets you set a directory to install to other than root
05:59<BabaBlackSheep>yes I have a fastcgi program that I need to run under apache, currently I have to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH in the apache conf file?
06:00<BabaBlackSheep>otherwise it does not run, but I noticed the configure script supports the --prefix option, will it help in my case so that I don't have to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH??
06:01<Nemoder>simply rebuilding it from source should negate the need for LD_LIBRARY_PATH

06:32<amanda-b>locklace, using an invocation of vncserver (which is a perl script). kde runs, although the new rendering in 4.2 is utter unusable crap under vnc (a problem i've found references to elsewhere, it's vnc, not kde). thus, to placate the user who is unable to cope with a command line, i'm trying to switch to gnome.
06:33<jm_>does it work for the user if started locally on console?

07:56<Flakk>Hi people I am trying to use aespipe (in a simplest way possible) and it does not work. That is, it encrypts a small text file OK, but when decrypting it adds a set of non-identified characters to the contents of the file. Still it recognizes the password gievn , so it does not seem to be completely broken. I am at lenny any help?

08:01<locklace>i'm using 2.3e-1 though
08:02<Flakk>locklace: I have installed only aespipe (not aes-loop"). Is this OK?
08:02<locklace>changelog doesn't indicate any real changes between those two versions though
08:02-!-nihil [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
08:02<locklace>yes, it's a completely independent utility
08:02<Flakk>I say: aespipe <aa >bb
08:03<Flakk>and suppose it will encrypt aa to the file bb, right?
08:03<locklace>i don't really understand the problem you're having. what happens if you "cd /tmp; ls -l | aespipe > ls.out; (enter password); aespipe -d < ls.out; (enter password)"
08:04<Flakk>1 sec

08:06<locklace>oops, changelog does say it's a new upstream version (doesn't mention what the upstream changes are, though)
08:07<Flakk>locklace: this works fine. thanks! - however the result of aespipe -d <[outputfile] appears in console, when i want if to be written to a file I say aespipe -d <[output] >[decryptedfile] and this [decryptedfile] is a mess
08:07-!-nihil [] has joined #debian
08:08<locklace>so if you do exactly the same steps above with the ls, except replace the last command with "aespipe -d < ls.out > ls.txt", what does ls.txt look like?
08:09<Flakk>ls.txt has the contents of the very first file (this is good) and then a string of non-identifiable characters, which gedit refuses to read
08:09<Flakk>(i read it with kedit, and thus got this info)
08:10-!-angasule [~angasule@] has joined #debian
08:11<locklace>let me see if i get any extra bytes
08:11<Flakk>though i write all this slightly differently: $aespipe <aaaa >aaab
08:11<Flakk>and then $aespipe -d <aaab >aaac
08:12<Flakk>(basically this is what the man page suggest)
08:12<locklace>ah, i do; the decrypted output appears to be padded to the length of the encrypted file

08:19-!-NCommander [~mcasadeva@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
08:20<locklace>i guess so. that description is not really clear in my opinion, it seems wrong to me not to remove the padding on decryption but maybe this is the intended behaviour
08:21-!-robyromania [~robert@] has quit []
08:21<Flakk>observe however that if I do not want to save the decrypted fiel as [file], and just want to display it, as you told me - it works fine!
08:21<locklace>well, that's just because the padding consists of null bytes which are not printing characters in your terminal
08:22<Flakk>yes, right you are
08:22<locklace>you can always manually remove the null bytes at the end of the decrypted data if you want (but this is not a great solution if the original data may contain null bytes)
08:23<Flakk>well it is OK for the text files (although gedit refuses to read it)
08:23<Flakk>but if I have a big fila, say PS or something
08:23-!-dr|z3d [~dr|] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
08:23<locklace>if you're using it only on text files, just pass the decrypted output through a helper program that strips trailing null bytes
08:23<locklace>tr -d '\000' for instance, although that removes *all* such bytes
08:24<locklace>or use an encryption program that isn't braindead about pad handling ;)
08:24<Flakk>I guess gpg is not ) but i thought aes is better...

08:31-!-peterS [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:31<locklace>Flakk: i would recommend first searching for an existing debian bug and then (if there isn't one) open one or write to aes devs to either fix the bug (if it's a bug) or make the fact that the decrypted output may not match the original input because of pad handling very clear in the documentation

10:59<Sir-Integra>lsmod grep v6
10:59<Sir-Integra>ipv6 235300 31
10:59<zedboy>pbn: is it possible your computer is really 64bit and the installer figured that out?
10:59<locklace>Sir-Integra: or it could be that you need to shut down network interfaces with assigned v6 addresses or remove the addresses or afs first with ifconfig
11:00<Sir-Integra>how would i do that? (sorry)
11:00<pbn>zedboy: well yes, the machine is 64-bit, and I've set up a dual boot betewwen 64-bit squeeze and 32-bit squeeze. I'm just surprised that on the 32-bit squeeze the kernel is 64-bit....
11:01<zedboy>pbn: maybe the installer got a little to smart for its own good
11:01-!-chomwitt_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:02<pbn>zedboy: and there's something very weird
11:02<pbn>if I do dpkg -l | grep linux-image

11:03<pbn>and aptitude search linux-image-2.6.26-2
11:03<pbn>shows p linux-image-2.6.26-2-amd64 - Linux 2.6.26 image on AMD64
11:03<sylarrr>anyoneknows what the trick that lets you install, but not to the root directory?
11:04<pbn>looks like the kernel package installed isn't a amd64 kernel, huh ?
11:04<locklace>Sir-Integra: try running "ifconfig <intf> del <v6addr>" for <intf>=lo and eth0 and <addr> the associated address as currently reported by ifconfig
11:05<zedboy>pbn: i mean, in real life grub/lilo boot what you tell them to, irrespective of what packages are installed
11:05-!-jgarvey [] has joined #debian
11:05<locklace>Sir-Integra: if that doesn't let the modprobe -r succeed you can always try blacklisting the v6 module in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and restarting
11:06<pbn>zedboy: yes, that I Know :) .... you choose the kernel you want in grub... but there's only one kernel installed...
11:06<Sir-Integra>replace <addr> with my ipv6 ip/
11:06<pbn>and it's a 64-bit one on a 32-bit install
11:06<locklace>Sir-Integra: right, like for the lo interface it will be "::1/128"
11:08<zedboy>pbn: you mean in /bot
11:08<zedboy>er /boot
11:08<Sir-Integra>locklace: can you provide me with an example? sorry about this, i'm a bit slow heh.

14:17<Piet>i think you have two options at this point: (1) backup all relevant data, reinstall a clean system, restore data; (2) chroot into the system, make sure everything neccessary is installed, mkinitrd, grub-install, unmount -a, reboot
14:17<Piet>andrew: i wasn't responding to you there
14:17<mbarnes>i agree piet i like option 1
14:18<bja>narayanraum: On your boot screen, edit and erase the quiet option so there is more to the problem
14:18<andrew>anyhow, i was getting the same error with ubuntu 9.04

15:06<locklace>if you really want to go down that road, you're going to have to get the source for the old libc and build it yourself (that will be an exercise in pure, intensive and unadulterated fun); then you're going to have to arrange to install that in a non-system-standard location, and then you can frob your LD_LIBRARY_PATH to make your binary use that libc instead of the current one

16:15-!-eagle_cn [] has joined #debian
16:15<locklace>ed_debian: no, sh is the bourne shell
16:15<ed_debian>cahoot, Well my b43 process had a nice value of -5 and my Xorg only has a nice value of -1 so anytime I would load a website (or use the network at all) the desktop (mouse in particular) would appear sluggish

16:16<locklace>ed_debian: the fact that it may be linked to bash on your system since it can serve as a bourne-compatible shell is neither here nor there
16:16<cahoot>ed_debian: simply renicing X wouldn't be an option?
16:17<locklace>ed_debian: the point is to always write your shell scripts in terms of the posix bourne shell

16:20-!-bja [] has joined #debian
16:20<locklace>ed_debian: this is all history. the original bourne shell /bin/sh is the standard shell language for unix scripts. many other shells came along afterward, including ones like ksh and later zsh and bash that added features while preserving bourne shell compatibility
16:21-!-mode/#debian [+l 421] by debhelper
16:21<cahoot>ed_debian: you can simply set 'nice_value=-5' in /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config
16:22<locklace>ed_debian: the bourne shell is now a posix standard and works on all platforms as long as you stick to the standard language. linux people have had a really bad habit of polluting the world with bash-specific scripts that fail everywhere but the system they were written on
16:22<ed_debian>cahoot, Yeah. I know. I already do that. (except -1). How do I set b43's nice from inception?

16:32<locklace>eagle_cn: it would be better to not even write bash scripts at all ;)
16:32<eagle_cn>For the compatibility?
16:32<locklace>ed_debian: a good reason not to use bash as /bin/sh (as the current default is set up) is that bash is big and slow since it's designed as an interactive shell with a ton of features
16:32<locklace>ed_debian: hence the suggestion to replace it with dash above
16:33-!-Lin [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
16:33<locklace>eagle_cn: well it depends on the problem you're trying to solve, but in a nutshell: (1) if you're trying to write a portable shell script then you must use posix sh; (2) if on the other hand you're writing something personal, there are *much* better languages to do it in than bash
16:34-!-bja [] has joined #debian
16:34-!-Lin [] has joined #debian
16:34<ed_debian>locklace, So the problem is that many linux users don't know that sh simply means shell and that it is a shortcut to whatever shell is on there system. They think it is bash because by default it is. They then write only bash scripts and if you took their script and tried to run it on a machine that didn't use bash by default it would not run. Bottom line I need to be aware of alternative shells and their syntax and the meaning of /bin/s

16:35<locklace>ed_debian: yes, all correct except the bit about "sh simply means shell and that it is a shortcut": sh means something very specific and there is an honest-to-god Bourne shell, the original unix /bin/sh program and the ancestor of all other shells

16:36<ed_debian>#!/bin/sh points to a shell defined in /etc/passwd /bin/sh is a shell
16:36<dondelelcaro>ed_debian: no, it's just a symlink to whatever the default shell is
16:36<dondelelcaro>ed_debian: usually bash or dash, but sometimes something else
16:37<locklace>ed_debian: no, #!/bin/sh means "execute this file by passing it to the program /bin/sh". the shell listed in a user's /etc/passwd entry is unrelated
16:37<locklace>dondelelcaro: on debian. in general it certainlyl need not be a symlink.
16:38<dondelelcaro>(on a Debian system, /bin/sh is required by policy to be posix compliant shell which implements specific extensions in addition to what posix requires)
16:38<dondelelcaro>locklace: sure... but having multiple copies of the default shell is kind of silly
16:38<eagle_cn>Why debian changes default shell from dash to bash?
16:38<dondelelcaro>eagle_cn: the default shell has been bash for forever
16:38<locklace>dondelelcaro: right, but that situation only arises on systems where sh is implemented by something else.
16:39-!-Nazcafan [] has joined #debian
16:39<eagle_cn>I remember that in etch /bin/sh is dash by default
16:39<locklace>my point above was that on many unix systems /bin/sh really is its own program, it's not bash or ksh or something else
16:39<dondelelcaro>eagle_cn: you misremember

17:12<bja>Has anyone used ext4 fs on linux If so, Is there a significant perfomance difference?
17:12<bja>with ext3 or reiserfs?
17:13<dr|z3d>bja: ext4 does come with significant performance advantages, at some cost, currently.
17:13<dr|z3d>There are issues with dataloss that are currently being addressed.. best to leave ext4 for a while, I think.
17:14<locklace>bja: it's great at corruption too
17:14<fanti>hello! in kde3, i've used a font called "Fixed [Misc]", which refers to /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc/7x14.pcf.gz. i like to use that font on my new installed notebook in kde4 again. the file exists, but kde doesn't know that font.
17:14<dr|z3d>When Ubuntu ship ext4 by default, you'll know it's ready.
17:14<bja>I've heard marvelous things about ext4 but not on any production server or hi traffic site.
17:14<soultcer>dr|z3d: When Ubuntu ships anything you know it isn't ready!

17:14<locklace>fanti: what does "xlsfonts | grep 7x14" return
17:14<bja>Guess new server will have to stick to ext3 or reiserfs
17:15<dr|z3d>Best to stick to ext3.
17:15<locklace>reiserfs is also pretty good at corruption
17:15<dr|z3d>ReiserFS is slowly going obsolete.
17:15-!-javatexan1 [] has joined #debian
17:15<soultcer>I always see debates about ReiserFS and ext3/4, but why does nobody ever mention xfs? It's a lot faster and reliable than xfs.
17:16<dr|z3d>(When the lead dev gets a life sentence for murdering his wife, you know that somehow ResierFS isn't going to flourish).

17:16*bja increases backup frequency on various servers
17:16<fanti>locklace: it just returns 7x14, 7x14 bold (three times)
17:16<locklace>soultcer: for what median file size
17:16<bja>dr|z3d: I believe that someone else took the project and is working hard on it.

17:17<locklace>soultcer: ok, so does "xterm -fn 7x14" give you the font you want
17:17<Supaplex>soultcer: how do you figure?
17:17<soultcer>locklace: The bigger the better. ReiserFS is still very good for smaller files.
17:17<locklace>fanti: ok, so does "xterm -fn 7x14" give you the font you want
17:17<fanti>i worked the last 4 years with that font in vim on konsole. i like to have it again in kde4
17:17<fanti>locklace: ah, yes. xterm works with that font
17:18-!-olli32 [] has joined #debian
17:18<locklace>soultcer: right, so in the absence of a size distribution skewed toward the large end it doesn't offer any particular advantage that i know of
17:18<fanti>locklace: but i've no option to select that font in konsole
17:18<soultcer>Supaplex: Real life experience. ext3 becomes slow as crap over time, and is unfortunately prone to fragmentation too. Also, it isn't 64 bit so it has many limitations.
17:18<locklace>fanti: does konsole except the -fn argument (i've never used it)
17:18<locklace>fanti: accept. jesus, i'm gone

18:21-!-fabio [] has joined #debian

20:03<stevendh>hello, I got a problem with gamin in testing, and i think it's not my fault.
20:03<dpkg>If you have a question, just ask! For example: "I have a problem with ___; I'm running Debian version ___. When I try to do ___ I get the following output ___. I expected it to do ___." Don't ask if you can ask, if anyone uses it, or pick one person to ask. We're all volunteers; make it easy for us to help you. If you don't get an answer try a few hours later or on See <smart questions><errors>.
20:04<stevendh>well, i can monitor changed/moved/... files just fine, but the (sparse) docs suggest i can monitor execution of files too, but that doesn't work

20:59<kampasky>Hi! I need to automatically reconfigure an exim4 installation on lenny, but debconf decided to just drive me mad. I extracted the relevant items from config.dat on one machine, then on another I'm trying DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive DEBCONF_DB_FALLBACK='File{/root/exim4-config.dat}' dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config
21:00<kampasky>However, exim4 always uses the old configuration. I tried DEBCONF_DB_OVERRIDE instead of _FALLBACK too, with no effect whatsoever. What am I doing wrong?

21:05<kampasky>hmm, i just noticed - dpkg-reconfigure actually does it the wrong way around! it will use DEBCONF_DB_OVERRIDE file as the target where it _saves_ the configuration, which it still loads from the system-wide database

21:08<kampasky>yes, that's what i'm after

21:54<dan__>go into system>preferences>mouse and try to check the box for a simulated secondary click (by holding down the mouse button)
21:55<dan__>...but the box gets unchecked and i get a warning that "mousetweaks requires assistive technologies"
21:55<dan__> then i go into system>prefs>assistive technologies, and voila! the box is checked
21:55<dan__>i've tried unchecking it, logging out, logging back in, rechecking it, logout/in again. nada.
21:55<dan__>i've tried reinstalling mousetweaks... nada
21:55<dan__>(it's already installed)
21:56<dan__>so here I am, not able to do everything on the command line, and without a right click to work with the gui. any ideas on how I can get this simulated secondary click to work?

22:45<abrotman>there's a different way to do that
22:45<dan__>...and this is going to confirm what I said earlier about being new to all this... but how do I now USE mouseemu?
22:45<dr|z3d>dan__: From a terminal type: man mouseemu
22:45<dan__>oh, it's cli?
22:46<dan__>cool, i'll try that
22:46<dr|z3d>That will give you some indication of how to use it.

22:58<Wolfcastle>hello ppl
22:59<Wolfcastle>am I the only one having graphical problems with kde 4.2?
22:59<Wolfcastle>I get some random partial black in windows
23:00<dr|z3d>Wolfcastle: Sounds like a graphics driver issue, probably.
23:00<Wolfcastle>plus I have no icons in the classic-style menu
23:00<Wolfcastle>dr|z3d: i have the nvidia driver installed
23:00<dr|z3d>Wolfcastle: Sure.. have you tried a different environment.. gnome or xfce, for example?
23:01<dr|z3d>And also, are you running Compiz?
23:01<Wolfcastle>dr|z3d: not now but I had no such issue with kde 3 with I was using yesterday
23:01<Wolfcastle>dr|z3d: no, I'm not running compiz
23:01<Wolfcastle>dr|z3d: I would guess it's a kwin issue
23:02<dr|z3d>Well KDE4's a bit more graphically intensive, so if your drivers are suspect, KDE4 is more likely to show that than KDE3.
23:02<Wolfcastle>dr|z3d: i see
23:03<dr|z3d>I'm also not a hugefan of KDE4.. style over substance in my view.

23:04<dan__>so i now have mouseemu installed and understand the command I need to execute (from the man pages). when I type in terminal "mouseemu xxxxxx" it says "command not found."
23:04<dr|z3d>What if you type: sudo mouseemu xxxxxx
23:05<Wolfcastle>dr|z3d: yeah I'm thinking about installing gnome right now

23:05<dr|z3d>Wolfcastle: While you're thinking about that, install Xfce!

23:06<dan__>well, sudo didn't work, but su did. so now i'm in a root terminal, and when I run it it exits with no messages, but doesn't seem to be working (ie, I still can't control-click to get a right mouse button effect)

23:09<dr|z3d>dan__: You really need to start hitting up google.
23:10<dr|z3d>That's another irc-thing.. if folk feel you've made an effort to troubleshoot your issue (via google etc) before you ask your question, you're likely to get more/better assistance :)

23:11<dr|z3d>On the other hand, if you use irc like you're own personal google, folk tend to see through that pretty quick and may decline to help.

23:19<dr|z3d>That's the 64bit link.. sniff around until you find the 32bit version, if that's what you need.
