00:51<dpkg><tarmath> I've got 2 incredibly easy questions! Anyone can answer, and thus feel better that they could be of help to someone!
00:53-!-poncho [~poncho@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:58<dondelelcaro>beer: if you help, yes. If not, maybe
00:58<dondelelcaro>beer: currently it doesn't have an active maintainer
00:59-!-dwendt [] has joined #debian
01:00<beer>dondelelcaro: a shame I do not knoe anything how to be a maintainer. The job of a maintainer is to make deb package of the programe and upload it?
01:01<compgrokker>and afaict to catch crap if it doesn't work ;)
01:02-!-elsimio [~elsimio@] has joined #debian
01:02<beer>I do not think I have the guts to the a maintainer
01:02<dondelelcaro>beer: and to fix bugs in the package, etc.
01:03<dondelelcaro>beer: if you're an avid user of eclipse, your in a good position to at least contribute to the maintenance of it
01:04<dondelelcaro>(I imagine the number of debian developers who actually use eclipse is fairly small, so it needs someone who uses it to work on its maintenance)
01:06<beer>I use it weekly(nearly daily) but that is the eclipse from not from apt-get since eclipse@mirrors are so old and it depends on gcj witch is not so good compared to sun-java6-jdk

04:26<quigz>nah i did this once and there was some easy way to get them back some hotkey or something

08:38<Aleric>umount -f fails of course, and umount -l "works", but since the devices are still in the output of ls I'm sure as hell not going to do an rm -rf on the chroot after that.
08:38<valdyn>Aleric: "imo" is silly, use lsof
08:38<Aleric>I did use lsof
08:38<valdyn>Aleric: as root
08:38<Aleric>I did

08:38<danger_>ah okay locklace so what do I need to do?
08:38<valdyn>Aleric: what does devices being in the output of ls have to do with it?
08:38<hever>I should be able to do this, or not ?
08:39<jm_>Aleric: did you stop all processes and exited from chroot?
08:39<locklace>danger_: first, double-checking: /dev/hda1 is definitely a free partition that doesn't have any data you need, right? what we're going to do next will wipe it out
08:39<Aleric>jm_: I entered the chroot with chroot, and exitted it with exit. I'm not aware of any processes having started that would still be running, nor do I see anything that might be it in ps aux
08:40<Aleric>lsof only shows bash shells that have nothing to do with the chroot
08:40<valdyn>Aleric: umm?
08:40<valdyn>Aleric: you are telling us that lsof is lying?

08:43<valdyn>Aleric: thats silly

08:54<tonytraductor>can I mix stable and unstable, say, if I want the latest of some app (ie. icedove in stable won't play with google calendar)? I'm reading the FAQ, and somewhere it mentions mixing repos, but I'm a little unclear on that
08:54<mjk>JFTR -- Using a minimal sources.list didn't help with my KDE deps problems, same messages as in

08:55<tonytraductor>thanks locklace
08:55<tonytraductor>so, if I wanted the latest version of a package, I would have to DL and install it by hand
08:55<locklace>tonytraductor: depending on your actual requirements, going with testing might be appropriate for you

09:08<tonytraductor>honestly, I've been thinking about switching to debian forever, but since I couldn't get woody to play, stayed with other distros (fedora, pclinuxos, ubuntu) for some time
09:09<tonytraductor>I think I have enough experience now (c. 10 yrs) that I should be able to get Debian to work for me
09:09<locklace>one big change is that it tries to autoconfigure as much as possible, so the recommended way to start off now is actually to have no conf file and only add one if you need to fix or tweak something

09:18<tonytraductor>okay, here's a more serious question: I have /home on a separate partition. There are config files in there for my current ubuntu install (incl.,for instance, .aptitude). Will debian overwrite them appropriately?
09:18<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.

09:19<llutz>tonytraductor: so it won't work with debian

09:20<tonytraductor>time consuming and a pita, but do-able
09:21<locklace>well, that's probably somewhat extreme
09:21<tonytraductor>I wrote about my experience with the Debian Live here:
09:21<locklace>only a small part of /home should really be config files that interfere with the system

10:31<tonytraductor>you may have surmised, that, depsite using Linux for nearly a decade, I'm far from an expert
10:31<locklace>tonytraductor: you are getting the netinst iso right
10:31<tonytraductor>I just finally started learning to write my own bash scripts and do some tcl/tk hacking about 18 months ago
10:32<tonytraductor>no, I'm getting the
10:32<locklace>"bash scripts" ... jesus wept
10:32<locklace>tonytraductor: ok. well, netinst is a better way to go really, for several reasons. one is that it's much smaller
10:32<tonytraductor>which is also when I stopped wasting my time with kde
10:33<tonytraductor>have used fluxbox, openbox, dwm and ion3 since
10:33<azeem>locklace: getting the CD1 is not bad though
10:33<locklace>azeem: no, not bad
10:33<azeem>if people already started downloading it, there's no point in argueing
10:33-!-foka [~foka@] has joined #debian
10:33<tonytraductor>why...would it be better to get the netinst?
10:33<tonytraductor>that's not going to install gnome by default or something is it?
10:34<locklace>tonytraductor: the netinst is very small, and downloads just the packages you need from the net automatically during your install.
10:34<jthomas>depends if you tell it to do a desktop with the install
10:34<locklace>tonytraductor: and since, as we discussed, you're going to pick only the "base" install, that package set is fairly small.
10:34<jthomas>you have various 'roles' that you can pick at install; the Desktop option installs Gnome. I don't think there is one for KDE (which sucks IMHO but you don't seem to want that either)
10:34<tonytraductor>I'm a little wary of trying to do something that will require too many decisions on my part...
10:34<azeem>locklace: I thought he wanted LXDE?

10:36-!-AbsintheSyringe [~havoc@] has joined #debian
10:36<shamanix>yeah the programmer of lxde is some taiwanese huy
10:36<tonytraductor>maybe I should try the netinst
10:36<azeem>tonytraductor: please go for the CD1
10:37<azeem>now that you're halfway through
10:37<tonytraductor>yeah, the cd1 is almost all here, already
10:37<locklace>tonytraductor: apart from being smaller, the point of the netinst+"base"-option is this: you will get a minimal system, so you can see what that is and means, and you will then have the opportunity to install precisely the packages you want yourself, from the commandline, which is both simple and a good learning experience.
10:37<tonytraductor>yeah, that does appeal to me, in truth
10:37<azeem>locklace: which may or may not be a good idea for new users
10:38<tonytraductor>I mean, my main reason for moving away from ubuntu is so much unnecessary bloat gets installed by default
10:38<tonytraductor>like compiz
10:38<tonytraductor>why would I need compiz?

10:38<azeem>fine then
10:39<tonytraductor>I had, briefly, considered trying to install Arch, which, unless I'm mistaken, would require that I do some kind of netinstall and do everything by hand
10:39<locklace>tonytraductor: arch is entirely netinstall-based, and overall a lot less polished
10:39<shamanix>never really understud what the hype is with all those fancy effects, I even criticised and disabled them back in early WinXP days
10:40<tonytraductor>burning iso now
10:40<locklace>tonytraductor: it's a decent system, but it's much younger and more seat-of-the-pants than debian
10:40<tonytraductor>that's why I decided on Debian
10:40<tonytraductor>Debian has been around forever, and isn't going anywhere

11:09<shamanix>locklace, I know but since I have a router already, might as well put it to good use
11:09<locklace>shamanix: uh, no. not only do you not need routing for a lan, it's inappropriate for one by definition.

11:10<shamanix>I'll check the manual just to be sure
11:11<locklace>shamanix: so for the "lan" part of the network, i.e. the bit not related to internet access, what i said above applies, and your router box is just playing the role of a switch.

11:42<pi_>hey guys. sshd problem: I've uncommented the line to change the port number in ssh_config and also restarted the server (/etc/init.d/ssh restart) but it doesn't work still. i need to connect to debian via port 22 and not the port number i've specified in the config. what gives?
11:42<tonytraductor>I prefer a distinct su/root acct, in all truth
11:42<tonytraductor>that's what I was used to from fedora and pclinuxos
11:42<ml|>tonytraductor: nothing to do them, I do use sudo for shutdown only
11:42<cahoot>pi_: sshd_config
11:42<tonytraductor>I never understood the whole notion that sudo was more secure or something
11:43<pi_>cahoot, yes that's right
11:43<cahoot>pi_: you wrote ssh_config - which one is it?
11:43<pi_>cahoot, typo. sshd_config
11:43<pi_>there is no ssh_config
11:44-!-narcan is now known as pitcat
11:44-!-pitcat is now known as narcan
11:45<ml|>pi_: in /etc/ssh/ there is

11:46<ml|>the d is hard to miss
11:47<pi_>what is the difference between ssh_config and sshd_config?
11:47-!-hever [~hever@] has joined #debian
11:47<ml|>sshd for server ssh client
11:48-!-arw [~usuario@] has joined #debian
11:48<jeremiah>Yeah, sshd is the deamon that listens. ssh is the secure shell client
11:48<pi_>ah. thanks again.
11:48<pi_>so setting a different port number in ssh_config will connect to a remote server using the port number i've set in ssh_config by default?
11:49<jeremiah>It will inform the _client_ to use that port.
11:49<jeremiah>If there is nothing listening on that port, nothing happens
11:50<jeremiah>You can also set the port on the command line, with -p
11:50<pi_>ah. i understand now. thanks.
11:50<ml|>the default port is 22
11:50-!-__iron [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
11:51<ml|>but if sshd is to open to the net it is best to use something else
11:51<pi_>yes, that's why i'm editing sshd_config =). restarting the server via ssh doesn't disconnect me, is that normal?
11:51<pi_>i mean restarting sshd
11:51-!-__iron [] has joined #debian
11:52<jeremiah>Yeah, if you haev a sshd process listening at home for example, you'll find tons of bots hitting it trying to brute force your server
11:52<jeremiah>But they are gerenally harmless if you have strong passwords
11:52<pi_>yeah, i'm also installing fail2ban
11:52-!-madrescher [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
11:52<ml|>it might disconnect you don't remmeber
11:52<pi_>it doesn't. and it works fine!
11:52<ml|>pi_: use keys if that is what you are doing
11:53<jeremiah>Yeah, keys are the way to go.
11:53<jeremiah>They offer much more security as well.
11:53<ml|>use keys even locally
11:53<jeremiah>Since you can turn off passwords
11:53<ml|>yes in sshd_config
11:54<kooll>the best thing isn't to change port, but to use decent passwords or keys.
11:54-!-Gun_Smoke [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:54<kooll>changing port is nice to have less logs about failed attemps
11:54<ml|>whatever you do don't share your private key
11:54<pi_>thanks. i have this rather informative wiki page from centos as a reference:
11:55<jeremiah>ew, centos? That's like Red Hat.

13:08<the_ultimate_samurai>ok so i have a problem...i have a program ive made to test multithreading on an smp (dual core) i made first a single thread and timed how long it took to add the primes of all numbers from 1 to 1 billion

13:09<the_ultimate_samurai>i tested that it IS running on both cores...
13:10<tonytraductor>then again, it does seem like 90% of linux users want the nauseating, bloated, chaotic, eyecandy laden mess of kde, gnome, compiz
13:10<the_ultimate_samurai>what overhead?
13:10<tonytraductor>so the actual number of people using ion3 must be pretty small...meaning, who would be interested in working ont he project?

13:32<the_ultimate_samurai>i just dont understand this...its completely counterintuitive
13:32<the_ultimate_samurai>2 cpus doing the same workload as 1 cpu should do the job in half the time (roughly) not twice the time
13:34<the_ultimate_samurai>hell technically each cpu is only doing half the work of the previous single cpu

13:46<the_ultimate_samurai> add even more confusion to an already confusing problem...i ran the single threaded one at the same time as the multi-threaded one...and got the same time...but running the multithreaded one alone gives 40 seconds
13:46<the_ultimate_samurai>bja: long sequence?
13:47<the_ultimate_samurai>>.> i thought the sum of sqrts from 1 to 1 billion WAS a long sequence
13:48<the_ultimate_samurai>(when i say same time above i mean both ran the same amount of time)
13:48<the_ultimate_samurai>16 seconds
13:48<bja>the_ultimate_samurai: 16 seconds is a blaze
13:49<the_ultimate_samurai>i dont really care how fast it is...i care that the multithreaded solution works FASTER than the single threaded solution

13:53<bja>the_ultimate_samurai: On cellbe you have to tell explicitly which processor does what.

19:28<W3ird_N3rd>Hi, have a bit of a problem here. I want to install debian on a box for a sort-of HTPC. Trouble is: stable is too outdated. Testing is great, but the kernel is outdated and the Ralink wireless driver b0rked. Unstable is awesome but I can't even login: it does not accept my password. I never mistype such things, surely not twice.

19:29<ootput>W3ird_N3rd: one breadcrumb would be google :)
19:29<locklace>W3ird_N3rd: easiest thing to do is to download the current kernel package from sid and install it with dpkg -i, takes 2 seconds
19:29<ootput>W3ird_N3rd: it's not too difficult
19:30<locklace>W3ird_N3rd: that will give you 2.6.29. if you need later, that's also easy enough but takes more steps
19:30-!-bja [] has joined #debian
19:30<W3ird_N3rd>locklace, thanks, was not sure if that would be possible (breaking dependencies). Back to installing testing in that case :)
19:30<locklace>W3ird_N3rd: yeah, no problems there at all with the kernel package
19:31<ootput>W3ird_N3rd: i'd suggest reading kernel changelog for support of your wifi chipset
19:31-!-johnf [] has joined #debian
19:31<W3ird_N3rd>I have considered compiling my own kernel, but iirc I tried that quite some time ago and back then it gave me a headache. But I can do dpkg -i, that's more my level :)
19:32<W3ird_N3rd>2.6.29 should be good, it's just to get a working ralink driver again :)
19:32-!-remi [] has quit [Quit: Quitte]
19:32<locklace>W3ird_N3rd: start with the dpkg -i. later we can cover the kernel compile if you want, it's straightforward

19:33<W3ird_N3rd>I'll first have to install testing again because there's now a borked unstable on that drive :)
19:33<johnf>So I'm trying to become a DD again. I'm currently in emeritus status. I've emailed da-manager about a year ago and then again a few weeks ago. Should I a) just apply for standard DD and then being this up b) do something else?
19:33<bja>Does anyone know how does xterm manages fonts?
19:33<ootput>W3ird_N3rd: if you're already in a linux environment, you can do a bootstrap install
19:33<locklace>bja: it doesn't manage fonts
19:34-!-fregl [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
19:34<W3ird_N3rd>besides, is a bug in current unstable with not being able to login already known? I have no clue what package would be affected so the search doesn't seem much help.
19:35<locklace>W3ird_N3rd: no idea, sounds trivial to solve, boot with init=/bin/bash, remount / rw and use passwd to change the password
19:35<ootput>W3ird_N3rd: I have sid as a media box. No such problem here.
19:35<W3ird_N3rd>ootput, did you install it today?
19:35<ootput>W3ird_N3rd: few days ago
19:35<bja>locklace: Yes you are right X manages them for xterm. The point is that i get the font i like, the size i like. The width is double space and I can't find the X parameter to solve it
19:37<ootput>bja: might be a problem with the font with any combination of hinting/antialias
19:37<ootput>bja: try removing all of that jazz if you have them enabled
19:38<bja>ootput: No such parameters
19:38<bja>ootput: Removed them yesterday
19:38<ootput>bja: is there a fonts.conf lurking in the shadows?
19:39-!-HellDragon [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
19:39<ootput>bja: does this apply to all fonts, or only a select few?
19:39<bja>ootput: xterm uses .Xresources to read its configuration, the default one is on /etc/X11/app-defaults
19:40<bja>ootput: all fonts which i specify, if i let all the defaults go then there is no problem.
19:40-!-buzztardo [] has joined #debian
19:40<ootput>then stop making changes to the defaults ;)

22:26<ed_debian>how do I get support for xvid for ffmpeg?

22:27<ed_debian>sorry divX
22:27<ed_debian>I but that doesn't make a difference though
22:28<shamanix>I think you'll need to compile it yourself, I hear its a nightmare for ffmpeg, so good lucj
22:28<ed_debian>screw that I'll just use avidemux
22:28<shamanix>i did flvs and mkvs with h264 using it so it would be kinda stupid not to support mp1
22:29<ed_debian>I don't know a thing about video editing so could you walk me through it? I have avidemux open
22:29<shamanix>its patheticly easy if you want to convert only, sure I'll help
22:29<ed_debian>lol ok
22:30<ed_debian>so I opened the file I want to convert
22:30<ed_debian>it is an mpeg according to avidemux. How do I make it a divX codec with a .avi extension?
22:31<ed_debian>Xvid (sorry)
22:31<shamanix>on the left side where it says video select mpeg4 xvid

22:40<johnfg>Where is there a good guide for configuring the network for lenny? I've searched for it, but not finding much. Network Manager is not doing what I need.
22:40-!-eks [] has quit [Quit: eks]
22:40<ed_debian>Chronicle, lol yeah. Do you understand any of it?
22:41<johnfg>I've looked at /etc/network/interfaces, but am not sure whether I'm understanding it.
22:41<Chronicle>It list my interfaces
22:41<Chronicle>no error found
22:42<johnfg>My problem is that the network was not coming up as soon as it should, and so some other scripts dependent on the network weren't starting correctly.
22:42<ed_debian>johnfg, The ubuntu community documentation has a pretty good how to about /etc/network/interfaces. Ubuntu and debian are identical in that department
22:42<ed_debian>johnfg, Are you using wifi?
22:43<johnfg>ed_debian, yes.
22:43<johnfg>Everything was good until I tried to get kerberos and ldap to work together through nsswitch
22:43-!-yaotzin [~yaotzin@] has joined #debian
22:44<ed_debian>johnfg, yeah I had the same problem. I don't think you're going to find the answer by manually setting up /etc/networking
22:44-!-thearthur [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
22:44<ed_debian>johnfg, I think the larger problem is that wifi won't connect until after a user has logged in.
22:45<ed_debian>johnfg, idk. There is probably a way to get wifi to connect before any users have logged in I just don't know how (security issues ??)
22:45<ed_debian>Chronicle, I'm sorry but I don't really know anything about your problem :(. Post a thread at maybe?
22:46<Chronicle>well, thanks...
22:46<johnfg>Yeah, so I've got an ethernet cable coming from the wireless router that appears to the system as hard-wired rather than wifi.
22:47<Slurb>how do i tell what /dev file my mobile phone is accessed through

22:49<ed_debian>johnfg, if you have a wired going from your router to your computer what else would the computer see it as other than hard wired? I don't understand.
22:49<johnfg>ed_debian, Just a few, please. Have changed /etc/network/interfaces, and am going to try a reboot. Be back in a jiff!

23:03-!-buffoon_work [~buffoon@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:03<shamanix>ed_debian one more thing, use same quantizer as input only when converting and you need roughly identical quality, if you need exact bitrate use single pass or 2 pass
23:05<ed_debian>shamanix, The audio and the video aren't synced correctly?
23:05-!-stuckey [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:06<shamanix>thats interesting

23:07<shamanix>try replacing abr with cbr in lame config thats one guess
23:08<ed_debian>ok hang on
23:08<shamanix>some players have problems with abr, vbr and whatnot
23:08<ed_debian>It is unsynced on the computer

23:09<shamanix>the original or the file you just saved?
23:10<ed_debian>the newly converted one (xvid) is messed up when playing on the computer (totem)
23:11<ed_debian>abr / cbr made no difference
23:11-!-dimedo [] has joined #debian
23:13<ed_debian>any ideas?
23:14<shamanix>you can try enabling shift, but that requires lots of trial and error
23:15-!-yaotzin [~yaotzin@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
23:15<shamanix>can you try converting something other then mpeg1? maybe its a bug in Avidemux, never had this happen to me

23:17<ed_debian>I don't have any other videos?
23:18<shamanix>try mkv instead of avi temporarly. Avi has more bugs then you can shake a stick at (well its Microsofts standard what did you expect)

23:19<ed_debian>k it's encoding

23:20-!-phrosty [] has joined #debian
23:20-!-eraserhe1d [~t@] has quit []
23:21<ed_debian>the sound was the same and the video was odd and pixilated (spelling?)
23:21-!-hanthana [~hanthana@] has joined #debian
23:23-!-Caroll [caroll@] has joined #debian
23:24<shamanix>last guess is switch back to avi then and try single pass bitrate instead of same quantizer as input

23:27<ed_debian>same problem :( :(
23:27-!-sun [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
23:28<ed_debian>I did just notice something though...
23:28<ed_debian>If I play the original file in avidemux its audio is unsynced (actually about 2 seconds early)
23:29<ed_debian>but if I play the file with totem no problems
23:29<ed_debian>sorry, I feel like an idiot
23:29<shamanix>that may be because of soundcard latency, ALSA has loads of it
23:30<shamanix>my card doesnt even work in ALSA when using avidemux, the only other prog to do this was zsnes, changing the driver to sdl fixed my problem in both cases
23:31<shamanix>megawierd considering everything else works just fine when using ALSA
23:32<ed_debian>I think it is because avidemux is trying to auto-detect what type of file this is when I open it
23:32-!-dimedo [] has joined #debian
23:33<shamanix>can you try the vid in your dvd player? does it work there?
23:33-!-Knives [] has joined #debian
23:33<ed_debian>if I open the vid in totem it plays correctly
23:34-!-crib [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:34<shamanix>anyway, you can set the sound driver in edit -> preferences -> audio
23:34<ed_debian>mplayer plays the auido but gives an error on the video (and shows nothing)
23:35-!-esaym [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:35<ed_debian>How about Pulse?
23:36-!-tonytraductor [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
23:36<shamanix>if your card supports it, give it a try
23:36<ed_debian>nevermind pulse crashed (i guess that's a no)
23:36<shamanix>Pulse never worked for me, but I have a bloody C-media
23:37*shamanix regrets the day he sold his SB Live!
23:37-!-Holborn [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
23:37<shamanix>try SDL that does a decent job, atleast on my comp
23:38<ed_debian>arts works but is extremely choppy and the audio still isn't synced
23:38<ed_debian>oss is smooth but the audio still isn't synced
23:39<shamanix>my guess is the guys coding need to take a 6 month course in audio programming :-)
23:39<ed_debian>sdl (random nasty static buzzes) unsynced (in a different way)
23:39<ed_debian>shamanix, unfortunately i think you're right :(

23:40<alain>Hello - Is it safe to use Add/Remove Apps when you use a vanilla kernel with Debian
23:40<shamanix>btw what version do you have
23:41<alain>should I compile all my programs or should i still use Add/Remove
23:41<alain>thanks in advance
23:42<shamanix>by add/remove you meen apt, aptitude, synaptic, etc
23:42<alain>that's exactly it shamanix
23:42-!-qimo [~qimo@] has joined #debian
23:43<alain>i setup my sources and headers already
23:43<shamanix>heck I have a vanilla kernel, and I never had problems doing things like that
23:43<shamanix>ed_debian: what version of Avidemux did you get
23:44<alain>thanks for your time shamanix, have a great night

23:47<ed_debian>yeah we are using the same version (yeah I'm using the multimedia repos)
23:48<debianforlife>what do I add to the kernel line to make grub boot directly to the initrdramfs ?
23:49<shamanix>its kinda weird that it !@#$ up mplayer, since I'm an hardcore Mplayer zaelot, and never had any probs

23:58<shamanix>interesting, I also have a bit out of sync audio when playing back anything with Avidemux, however the encoded material comes out ok
23:59<shamanix>anyway you could try mancoder or handbrake, but I don't have any experience with those
