02:59<adama26>I did an update, what's keep-all?
03:00<dmoerner>adama26, well i presume you don't want it to actually remove all of that unused software. if you do, then aptitude purge --purge-unused will get rid of it. if you want to keep it, aptitude keep-all
03:00<dmoerner>other than that you'll have to wait it out, i currently have the same problem

03:37<jm_>why would you use automatix anywya? isn't that ubuntu crap?
03:37<unixostamer>so how i can install automatix?
03:37<dpkg>from memory, automatix is a tool which allows a menu-driven installation of 'capabilities', including commercial closed source programs such as Flash plug-in, Adobe Reader, w32codecs (divx, mp3, etc). You SHOULD NOT use it with Debian. Even the Ubuntu Technical Board advises against it. See
03:37<unixostamer>honestly im newbie to debian worlds
03:37<streuner>so just forget it
03:37<jm_>yeah don't use it
03:37<streuner>you can install everything without that
03:38<unixostamer>how can improve my fonts?? any suggestions?
03:38<unixostamer>i wanted to install true types with automatix, thou
03:39<dpkg>automatix is, like, a tool which allows a menu-driven installation of 'capabilities', including commercial closed source programs such as Flash plug-in, Adobe Reader, w32codecs (divx, mp3, etc). You SHOULD NOT use it with Debian. Even the Ubuntu Technical Board advises against it. See

04:37<Maxim>Hi! I'm having some trouble getting ldap to work on my Debian LAMP. I installed the php5-ldap package, restarted apache, but it still doesn't work. Get undefined function on ldap_connect(). Most of my LAMP configuration is "as is", meaning I didn't configure it much from the defautl settings installed after apt-get
04:38<jm_>you probably need to enable LDAP module in php5.ini or whatever
04:40<Maxim> is set

04:42<Maxim>themill: Well, "additional .ini files parsed" does repport parsing /etc/php5/apache2/conf.d/ldap.ini , but I'm not sure that's enough? There is otherwise no mentioning of ldap further on the page.
04:43<Maxim>The contents of ldap.ini is:
04:44<Maxim>thought when doing a 'locate', it only finds /usr/lib/apache2/modules/ and I tried pointing the extension to, but that didn't have any effect..

04:51<Maxim>Should I set the extensions folder in php.ini to anythign special?
04:51<themill>Maxim: is there anything else in the php config that you've been fiddling with?
04:51<Maxim>atm it's on: /var/lib/php5/extensions , which is an empty folder.
04:51<jm_>Maxim: mysql php module is also there and works fine, let me see
04:52<Maxim>themill: I haven't actually done anything in php.ini as far as I can recall.
04:52<themill>the default is extension_dir => /usr/lib/php5/20060613+lfs
04:53<Maxim>themill: Hmm.. That might explain it xD
04:53<Maxim>I'll try it out
04:53<themill>in fact, that's the compiled-in default in debian -- it's not actually set in the config file at all
04:55<Maxim>omg.. That fixed it.. Wonder how I managed to change the extension dir.. >.< Thanks for all the help, themill and jm_ :D

09:43<dr|z3d>Tomboy is an advanced note taking app. gnote is similar, but doesn't require mono.

09:44<dr|z3d>No idea, eeeuser, never used it.
09:44<themill>wooj: so what? mono is a library -- the more things that use it as a common library in the default install the better -- perhaps we should just rewrite a whole lot of other apps so that they also use mono. After all, libraries are at their best when they are shared between a lot of apps.
09:44<sseering>thanks themill
09:44<dr|z3d>mono is derived from .net. Some folk hate MS, ergo they'll hate mono regardlessof its benefits.

12:24<stuckey>weasel: 8 gigs???
12:25<weasel>ext3 has 4kb blocks. and it doesn't use extends.
12:25<weasel>and then there's the reserved space
12:25<weasel>or maybe it's base 2 vs base 10. who knows

12:26<stuckey>Are there other filesystems that make more efficient use of the drive?
12:26<stuckey>I mean, I'm missing like 50GB with this drive.

13:27<jrabbit>iirc you only get 4 priamary partitions
13:27<stuckey>jrabbit: it's ubuntu
13:27<jrabbit>your logical volumes probably only count as one...
13:27<jrabbit>ah ubuntu doesn't need one
13:27<stuckey>jrabbit: if so, then I've only got one primary partition right now
13:27<jrabbit>Yep you're fine to install it when theres space
13:28<jrabbit>I'd suggest making it so you don't put in a swap partition
13:28<stuckey>I did resize2fs, and then lvreduce on the logical voume
13:28<jrabbit>Did that get you free space on disk?
13:28<stuckey>Now it's 542 (it was 568)
13:28<stuckey>jrabbit: no free space shows up in partitioner
13:28<jrabbit>I generally like gparted to get an idea abotu the disk
13:28<jrabbit>stuckey: perhaps you created space inside the logical volume?
13:29<stuckey>jrabbit: That happened when I did lvreduce? So I need to move it out? How do I do this?
13:29<jrabbit>so the logical partion is stil lthe same size but the actual data in it is shurnk?
13:29<jrabbit>I don't know much about logical volumes :X
13:29<jrabbit>What partitioning tool are you using to check?

13:31<jrabbit>whats the output of vgdisplay?
13:32<locklace>stuckey: the whole point of dedicating a partition to lvm is that you can create and resize lvs within it without affecting the actual partition table of your disk
13:32<stuckey>locklace: Can I have some free space to install another os on?

13:37<jrabbit>Ah. Thanks gsimmons.
13:37<stuckey>gsimmons: Would it be easier to just buy another hard disk?

17:37<dmoerner>wow, aptitude just decided to dump core everytime i run it. wonderful
17:38-!-scientes [] has joined #debian
17:38<locklace>dmoerner: anything change since the last time it worked?
17:39<dmoerner>locklace, it seg-faulted at the end of a dist-upgade that included cups, lintian, and rpm updates. no appreciable reason in there why it would decide to dump
17:39<locklace>so is it dumping core when doing anything now or just when trying to install those packages?
17:40<locklace>did all those packages get cleanly installed?
17:40-!-ptr [] has joined #debian
17:40<locklace>does "anything" include even trivial things like aptitude --version?

17:43<dmoerner>dpkg seems to be functioning though
17:43<dpkg>dmoerner: are you smoking crack?
17:44<locklace>guess either bug in libapt or corruption in some package data file
17:44<dmoerner>silly question, how can i get strace to trace something with command line arguments?
17:45<azeem>dmoerner: strace <something>
17:45<azeem>or I don't understand your question
17:45<Beren>Am trying to install Lenny. When I get to the "detect disk" step it claimes it cannot find my sata disk. If I drop to a shell dmesg dhows it at /dev/sda, I can cfdisk it, and even mount the partitions manually, but the installer still claims it cannot find it. Not sure what my next step is. Any suggestions? I am using the latest stable netist image.
17:45<dmoerner>azeem, oh, i just jumped straight to quoting the something, that obviously works

18:04<Thefirefox>so a nublet question.. I run debian on a laptop with KDE . the dell has a limitation of 2048X2048 total... I want to run one screen for normal use (1280x800) and a screen for coding (768x1024). xrandr keeps yelling at me and xorg is kicking me in the face.
18:04<Thefirefox>Which should I go with.
18:05-!-oxi [] has quit [Quit: yes]
18:05<enouf>Beren28: "17:48 < Beren28> partitions were created with cfdisk under a lenny install" <-- so only the netinstall .. wait ... /me is confused - all Lenny? one time it worked, another it doesn't?
18:05<locklace>Thefirefox: whichever one hurts the least
18:05<dkr>Thefirefox: you can't switch resolution with xrandr?
18:05<Thefirefox>locklace, Well its a laptop so I only need the screen at work. xrandr seems dynamic, but it yells at me about the limitation
18:06<Thefirefox>dkr, I try, but even if I go 800x600 and 600x800... it still gets mad about the "size limit"
18:06<Beren28>I plugged this disk in to an existing lenny install and createdt he partitions for backup purposes
18:06<enouf>Beren28: sorry .. i seem to be not able to focus well, at the moment on your specific issue .. so whatever i mentioned, take for whatever it's worth ;-) and i wish you well with the Installer
18:07<dkr>Thefirefox: less anthropomorphizing and more exact error messages might make it easier to diagnose. :)

19:48<Zviper>when i set my homedir as /home/<myusername> my ftp works. when i try to change the dir, i get login incorrect. im guessing this is because it can't access the other dir. i chmod'd it 777 but still no go
19:48<themill>Zviper: it's not often that those permissions are really the best solution though. (Even /tmp doesn't have those exact permissions)
19:49<Zviper>i didn't think so.. what do you reccomend doing as a solution?
19:49-!-Beren28 [] has quit []
19:49<bja>Zviper: check the man page for the ftp server
19:50<bja>or the upstream web page, usually there is a configuration parameter to make that possible
19:50<bja>Zviper: but for security reasons, those type of servers are chrooted to their ~ dir
19:51<Zviper>yeh i have it set as chroot in my proftpd conf

19:52<bja>Zviper: you have to tell proftpd to let you do that. There is a web page on their site that tell you how to do it

23:25<enouf>gnome shouldn't be starting metacity if compiz is your default x-session-manager/x-window-manager, should it?
23:25<edbian>yeah. It happens once when I boot (presumably because of the metacity -> compiz --replace)
23:25<edbian>I would think not
23:25<enouf>so? enouf> edbian: is compiz listed under; update-alternatives --config [tab][tab] (as root/sudo) ....
23:25<edbian>I never set compiz as my default. I only added an entry to start-up in sessions
23:25<edbian>I don't understand that command ?
23:25<enouf>it's easy to toggle

23:26<enouf>hit TAB key twice
23:26<edbian>compiz is not listed there (cpp is which I think it related to compiz. NOt sure though)
23:26<enouf>if you have tab-completion enabled, you'd see something like this;

23:32<dpkg>Beryl was a compositing window manager for the X Window System, previously a fork of <Compiz>. The Beryl Project was merged with Compiz Extras in 2007 to form Compiz Fusion. #compiz-fusion on
23:33<edbian>no (i'm too young for that) I didn't start using linux until after the compiz merge. I do know what beryl is (was) though
23:34<enouf>ok - how about following that URL and going into that channel?
23:34<dpkg>from memory, compiz is a window and composite manager that uses OpenGL for rendering. It runs on <XGL> and <AIGLX>. It is in <etch> and can run when AIGLX and composite are enabled for your X server. Read for configuration and usage details. Current state of Compiz (et al) in unstable can be found at #compiz on
