00:44<laber>what is the instinct difference between dpkg and aptitude?? one sentence...
00:44<twb>laber: they are different layers of infrastructure. apt downloads packages, dpkg installs them.

01:08<badeagle01>i have decided to switch to debian, there appear to be 31 cds for installation, do i need all over there or will just the first one allow me to do a slimer installation?
01:10<badeagle01>nvm, i found my answer
01:10<a>no need for 31 sure
01:10<ml|>badeagle01: do you have good connection
01:12<badeagle01>decent (1.5mbit), but I like to have a CD incase it goes out and when my/any connection is not avail
01:13<ml|>well i would use netinst
01:13-!-cobi24 [] has joined #debian
01:13<ml|>dpkg: tell badeagle01 about netisnt
01:13<ml|>dpkg: tell badeagle01 about netinst
01:14<jm_>even one CD will provide just some most popular packages
01:16<badeagle01>i mainly use linux for web development, so i need apache, php, etc. I imagine those would be on the first CD
01:16<ml|>yup then you can install whatever you want after install, but i'd still use netinst tho
01:16<jm_>!cd contents
01:16<dpkg>To find out what is on what disk, use the searchable index at or download the .jigdo template from the same location and zless fooimage.jigdo. In the [Parts] section you will see the list of packages that are contained in the disk.

01:20<reckoner>how can i change the computers name via command line? like laptop-bob to laptop-billy?
01:24<dpkg>Use "hostname foo" to set the hostname, $EDITOR /etc/hostname to set it for the next boot (create /etc/hostname if it doesn't exist) and $EDITOR /etc/hosts to set up local translations for a FQDN. See also 'man 1 hostname', /etc/mailname.

01:39<a>hi people. I am upgrading from etch to lenny. am at the final step, aptitude full-upgrade done. I understand that now I must restart X manuall.y. should I do it as root? or as user? - thanx
01:40<k1lumin4t1>a, I think you better restart the whole system
01:40<a>ok, proceeding
01:42-!-mimmo [] has joined #debian
01:45<a>wow - seems that I have a real problem. 1) the system is still 2.6.18 2) does not want to start X. I am now at my terminal "login" and startx returns: no screens found any help?
01:45<a>i was upgrading to lenny, and changed the sources.list as it should be, and did all what is required
01:46<badeagle01>sounds like your xorg.conf needs fixed

01:55<a>ml| I still do not understand why it did not upgrade - my sources.list points to lenny...
01:57<jm_>a: it did upgrade
01:58<a>jm_ how do you know this
01:59<jm_>a: because what you described is normal (apart from X not starting), and in fact, have you really read release notes, you'd notice there is a section about kernel upgrades

02:01<a>(in fact)
02:02<jm_>a: just pay more attention to release notes for the next time you upgrade Debian and you'll be fine

02:02-!-rjent [] has joined #debian
02:03<ml|>a: just re-read release notes and see what you missed
02:03<jm_>for now first install new kernel, reboot with it, then if X doesn't work paste X logfile on pastebin and someone will take a look (pastebinit package is very useful)

04:48<AxxxA>snogglethorpe: its an ordinary hard drive
04:48<AxxxA>320 gb maxtor

04:49<twb>jm_: try kerberos
04:49<twb>jm_: or NT 4
04:50<jm_>twb: i am dealing with both occasionally :)
04:50<twb>Hmm. I need to find a "Windows NT Server 4.0 System Administrator" t-shirt to wear around to BDSM clubs. "So, what are you into?" "I administer a three-tiered, twelve-node NT4 cluster." --
04:51-!-__iron [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
04:51<snogglethorpe>AxxxA: i dunno really, i don't have any experience with windows filesystems; if it's formated using ntfs, maybe the linux ntfs driver is really slow or something?
04:52<twb>You shouldn't be using the ntfs driver anyway; rather the ntfs-3g driver.
04:52<AxxxA>someone must know how to get the "read only" bit off it
04:52<snogglethorpe>twb: is the 3g thing any faster, or just mroe functional?
04:52<twb>snogglethorpe: it supports write access
04:52<snogglethorpe>i'd think fuse might even slow thigns down
04:52<twb>As it uses FUSE, I imagine it would actually be slower

07:08<zxd>what is the hold in dpkg --set-selections used for , if I aptitude ignores it when I tell it to run upgrades
07:08-!-imgrey [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:08<dpkg>rumour has it, hold is a status flag that tells the package manager not to automatically upgrade a package. To hold a package: 'echo <package> hold|dpkg --set-selections'. It is also possible to use aptitude: 'aptitude hold <package>'. Notice that the hold flag set using aptitude might be ignored by other package managers (ie Update Manager and Synaptic) but that aptitude will respect the hold set in the dpkg database.

07:10<zxd>it will respect??

08:29<aaab>hello people. I have problem with lenny, which I have just installed. during the installation it put in my "sources.list" the line "deb" and another one with volatile.

09:15<dpkg>To get an NTFS or VFAT file system accessible by users and groups on the local machine, man mount; man 5 fstab; and read about the umask, fmask, dmask, uid, and gid options. You'll end up sticking something like conv=auto,uid=<user>,gid=<group>,dmask=0002,fmask=0003 into your fstab's mount option field.

11:18<edbian>avu: So I can get past the BIOS POST with a smaller empty harddrive as master and the larger (mine) as slave? But the kernel on the slave... Where does grub go?
11:18<Pitxyoki>zobel, that was Portuguese, not Spanish.
11:18<Pitxyoki>And I'm sorry, I only wanted to send that to the Portuguese network I'm at.
11:18<avu>edbian, at least the bootloader has to be on a device the BIOS knows about
11:19<sylar>how do I make a module load at boot?
11:19<avu>edbian, and I think the kernel too as grub does not do its own hdd detection (I might be wrong on that though)
11:19<avu>edbian, the thing I'm sure about is that as soon as the kernel loads, it will detect hdds even if the BIOS didn't

11:21<edbian>avu: Thank you! Let me see if I have this straight. Eventually I want a /boot parition (and in grub in the MBR) of the 15GB HDD that has the errors. I want that drive as Master. I then want / and /home paritions on the 40GB drive as slave. I will set the slave drive in bios as "none" instead of auto-detect to get through post. Is this all correct?
11:21<sylar>10x avu , I m just in a hurry
11:21<petern>"thanks" does not sounds like "10x"

11:22<petemc>was thinking similar myself
11:22<avu>edbian, sounds about right. using the drive with the errors sounds like a bit of a shaky solution though :)
11:23<edbian>avu: Well it is the only harddrive I have that will allow this system to boot. (bios boot that is). How can I fix the errors? If I wait long enough will debian work through all of the error and boot so that I can run cfdisk or something?

11:24<avu>edbian, broken hdds can't be fixed
11:24<avu>edbian, if it's broken, it's broken. and in most cases, it'll only get worse over time
11:24<edbian>?? What about those utilities with options like "search for errors and fix them if possible"
11:24<avu>that fixes file system errors
11:24<avu>not hardware errors
11:25<edbian>avu: How can I tell the difference??
11:25<avu>you can mark bad blocks using fsck with badblocks(8)
11:25<avu>but that won't do you much good in most cases
11:25<avu>edbian, check dmesg

11:45<avu>edbian, no
11:46<avu>edbian, the whole point is to boot from the harddisk

11:46<edbian>sda1 meaning the 40gb drive partition1

Will it automatically "absorb" the old package and start updating again?
13:50<edbian>Also does debian stable not upgrade any (except for security updates) software until a new debian stable is out (i.e. 6.0) ??
13:51<ml|>edbian: tried

13:51<deniz>dr|z3d, no my problem is that, lets say i restart comp by force and then reboot like sometimes or always or im not sure of the pattern but instead of asking me to either start a new window or restore every other window with each tab it opens the previous windows with tabs BY FORCE giving me no option

13:52<edbian>thanks everybody!
13:52<bja>stuckey: working perfectly over ipp
13:53<stuckey>bja: how'd you do it?
13:53<stuckey>bja: what's ipp?
13:53<edbian>I'll first try configuring. then i'll try backports, then I'll try downloading a .deb from the website (and configuring it)
13:53<edbian>Thanks again!
13:53<bja>stuckey: installed cups, looked for the ppd for the printer and forgot about it like 6 months ago
13:53<ml|>sounds good gl
13:54<bja>stuckey: installed it via http://localhost:631
13:54<stuckey>bja: so how do you print something now? For example you've ~/textfile.txt and you want to print it; what do you do?
13:54<stuckey>bja: I also did this, but I don't know how to print something now

13:54<stuckey>bja: I know the scanner works since I can use it to copy stuff
13:55<bja>stuckey: did you read the howto i posted earlier
13:55<stuckey>bja: which how to?

13:59<sanket>I had this idea about creating and maintaining partial repositories for personal distributions.
14:00<sanket>I think it would be great if we may automate the task of maintaining repositories, like getting dependencies, fetching, mirroring etc via an appropriate apt-get wrapper
14:01<sanket>nebdy interested in giving suggestions ?

14:04<stuckey>but no printing
14:04<bja>stuckey: pdf files need a different process use evince to print them
14:04<stuckey>bja: ah, okay i'll convert it to ps
14:04<seanius>edbian: i compiled some compiz packages backported to lenny if you're interested
14:04<vvas>ah, so the answer to my question is yes
14:05<vvas>stuckey: are you having problems printing? did they occur after a recent upgrade?
14:06<seanius>vvas: stuckey: i don't know if it's relevant but ghostscript is broken in unstable as of last night / this morning, but should hopefully be fixed soon

14:08<vvas>stuckey: hm, weird
14:08<seanius>vvas: but this is the bug that i found: #532392
14:08<stuckey>vvas: How do you print? with "lp"?
14:08<vvas>stuckey: have you checked the logs in /var/log/cups for anything that might look relevant?
14:09<stuckey>vvas: first, tell me how to print
14:09<stuckey>vvas: it may be that I'm not doing it right

14:10<vvas>stuckey: possibly more, but certainly .ps is the safest to try
14:10<bja>stuckey: did you download rutebook?
14:11*seanius considers connecting the vpn and sending a print job to pick up tomorrow
14:11<edbian>seanius: I was just going off the top of my head from what is in the main repo. What do all of these extra packages add to compiz? I am interested in them but I can't dowload them now (to this computer) because I am at "work"

14:15<seanius>edbian: you probably want at a minimum compiz-gtk and compiz-plugins (which should hopefully bring in the rest via dependencies), but if you don't know "apt-get install compiz" should give a decent default set of the packages
14:15-!-mrnice` [] has joined #debian
14:15<vvas>stuckey: so there you go, there seems to be some problem with the filter that converts the printjob to the format your printer understands
14:16<vvas>stuckey: but i'd have no idea what that is or how to fix it :^/
14:16<vvas>stuckey: are you running unstable?

14:19<stuckey>vvas: can we try just "cat >> printer"?
14:20<bja>stuckey: it won't work
14:20<vvas>stuckey: i haven't the slightest idea how you would bypass the cups machinery and send the data directly to the printer
14:20<vvas>stuckey: again, which version of debian are you running?

14:29<ml|>it seems stuckey does not like anything that's not open
14:29<vvas>"A small subset of HP devices require proprietary software technologies to allow full access to printer features and performance. These technologies cannot be open sourced. Because of this, HP is releasing binary plug-ins for each of these printers that work in conjunction with our Linux Open Source Printing Software to improve the printing experience for HP¢s Linux Printing Customers. These binary plug-ins require the user to read and agree to
14:29<stuckey>ffws: I posted you a link to it...

14:31-!-woshfdwo [] has joined #debian
14:31<ml|>stuckey: if you want a working printer just accept that, just a suggestion
14:32<dkr>that's only if you print via their protocol, you should still be able to use regular old port 515 or directly to the device if connected locally for printing postscript if you don't really need all the fancy features like collating options
14:32<stuckey>dkr: I want some open-source
14:32<stuckey>dkr: How do I print without their stupid plugin? (Note that I printed a test page from CUPS)
14:32<bja>stuckey: how do you read your pdf docs?
14:32<stuckey>dkr: and can I scan also. This is a multi-function device.
14:32<stuckey>bja: xpdfview
14:33<bja>stuckey: does it have a print button?
14:33<woshfdwo>back. i just remembered what it was i was installing befor this happened. i was trying to install new splash themes. i installed usplash or splashy (cant remember the exact name off hand) and i installed a couple of debs i got off of on the next reboot is when this happened. when locklace mentioned initramfs i remembered that when dpkg was installing the deb was taking a while to generate something to do with i
14:33<dkr>stuckey: just ocnfigure it in cups as generic postscript printer
14:33<vvas>stuckey: i would imagine that you can change the driver and still be able to print
14:33<dkr>I don't know anything about scanning feature though

14:55<jthomas>does lh_config --clone create a livecd ISO ? with installer ?
14:55<vvas>stuckey: yes

17:52<jackyf>atlems: basically, you can file a bug against your X video driver, but you will need to check (consider dpkg logs (/var/log/dpkg)) and report also what important package were updated (kernel, X, video driver) and see what maintainer respond.

18:44<ml|>then start X as normal user

19:29<interbird>bja: i know, but ntp is a deamon that's syncs time once it is running, so the moment it get's started does not realy matter; my problem is that once ntp runs it does not sync

19:30-!-Chaos`Eternal [~chaos@] has joined #debian
19:31<ml|>yes it's a deamon, but don't you run a command now manually?
19:33<bja>interbird: No messages on syslog?
19:33<interbird>yes, i run /etc/init.d/ntp restart and then it syncs; looks almost like it uses a cache timezone from when no inet is present and keeps on using that even after inet comes up; also, mint and ubuntu are derivatives of debian and i have not this problem with them; still comparing...
19:34<interbird>bja: of course, but nothing is going wrong; i mean, no execptions or coredumps, so syslog is not of much help
19:34<themill>network-manager being started and the interface being brought up are two different things

23:41<Zviper>how do i do something like kill all hung processes?
23:41<woshfdwo>Zviper: ps aux
23:42<woshfdwo>find the process # and then 'kill -9' it
23:42<woshfdwo>or killall <process> if you know the name of it
23:42<Zviper>there's something in my system that's making the load abnormally high
23:43<Zviper>but nothing is above ~2% cpu usage and ram usage is at around 300mb out of 4gb
23:43<Computer_Man>Zviper are you running conky?
23:44<Zviper>the proc is a quad core, i have no idea why it's doing this
23:44<Computer_Man>can you get in to you the system monitor?
23:45<Zviper>i only use ssh really
23:45<woshfdwo>can i edit my repos to testing just so i can install a newer kernel version then edit them back to stable and continue using stable with the new kernel?
