00:02<TIM>my life sucks right now, my cd drive doesn't work properly
00:03<adb>needed for ?
00:04<TIM>talking to me?
00:04<TIM>question mark
00:04<dr|z3d>TIM: Do you have a Debian issue we can help with? Or are you just here to piss and moan? :)
00:05<TIM>I'm a nooby for one so if by debian you mean a linux comparability problem then yes
00:05<gsimmons>chzo: If you are after assistance regarding your issue, you will need to provide details. /msg dpkg ask
00:06<dr|z3d>If you're a noob, then Ubuntu or MintLinux are likely infinitely more suitable.
00:06<TIM>i'm on ubuntu
00:06<TIM>I call ubuntu linux
00:06<mosno>does it answer?
00:06<TIM>cause like I said i'm a nooby
00:06<dpkg>Sunday is the day all trolls swarm to #debian, avoid at all cost to remain sane.

00:12<Piratero>i need like a cheat sheet
00:12<Piratero>that ties the package system of debian into one
00:12<Piratero>from what the looks of it, i can do exactly what the freebsd ports system does

00:28-!-c [] has joined #debian
00:28<craigevil>idk it can be installed as a package
00:28<sney`>oh goodness I had no idea that existed
00:28<sney`>that is really cool
00:28*sney` prints
00:29<lethalduck>What does the ampersand mean/do in: find / | xargs tar cf - | bzip2 > /dev/null&
00:29<craigevil>debian-refcard is the package name
00:30-!-southernc [] has joined #debian
00:30<sney`>lethalduck: it runs the command in the background and returns you to a shell prompt before the command finishes
00:31<sney`>there's a space between /dev/null and the &
00:31-!-arkadiusz [] has joined #debian
00:32<lethalduck>Great sney, thanks
00:32<sney`>so that command says, in english, "list all my files, then put them in a tar archive, then bzip that shit, but don't tell me about it, and let me do something else while it's happening"

00:44<k1lumin4t1>has anybody installed linux and windows in different drives being managed by GRUB?
00:45<southernc>im doing it right now
00:45<k1lumin4t1>southernc, debian in particular?
00:45<sney`>I've done it before but not recently, it's fairly easy, the trick is to install windows first
00:45<k1lumin4t1>the scenery is this
00:45<sney`>making grub play nice with a windows install is a lot easier than going back into your linux install after windows erased your MBR
00:45<k1lumin4t1>Two IDE hard drives both of 2 GB
00:45<southernc>you install windows and when grub searches for other installations as long as the harddrive is connected at the same time it will ask if you want to add it to the mbr
00:46<southernc>very easy
00:46<k1lumin4t1>so it's basically the same as with one drive?
00:46<sney`>yeah, same deal as with one drive and 2 partitions
00:46-!-angasule [~angasule@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:46<sney`>also, dang, 2GB hard drives? where'd you get those, a museum?
00:46<k1lumin4t1>kind of
00:46<k1lumin4t1>it's a very old box
00:47<sney`>I'll say.
00:47<k1lumin4t1>that had one 2 GB HD and another 10 GB
00:47<southernc>those would be good for making a linux firewall box
00:47<k1lumin4t1>and I added another 2 GB
00:47<k1lumin4t1>so I want the two 2 GB to bear the OSes
00:47<southernc>good luck with that
00:47<k1lumin4t1>and the 10 GB to bear the "homes"
00:47<sney`>1 drive for OS, 1 drive for swap (because you know it has like no ram), 2 NICs, hardly any PSU usage
00:48-!-elias [~elias@] has left #debian []
00:48-!-wmt [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:48<k1lumin4t1>sney, that0s a good idea
00:48<sney`>it'd be decent for linux tinkering too though
00:48<k1lumin4t1>now I'm messed up :D
00:48<sney`>yeah if you already have a windows machine I wouldn't really recommend trying to dual-boot a machine that old
00:48<southernc>that could cause an easy ddos with such a small drive
00:48<k1lumin4t1>dunno how to set them now
00:48<sney`>unless you're putting win95 on it or something
00:48<k1lumin4t1>sney, why?
00:49<sney`>XP would hardly fit. 2k could work, but it'd be a squeeze.
00:49<sney`>I mean, if you're just playing around, it'll be fine, but you'll find yourself going "argh I have to delete things to fit this reasonable download" a lot
00:49<southernc>i dont think with the kernel source it would fit ....
00:49<k1lumin4t1>it has 128 MB RAM
00:50<k1lumin4t1>and it's a pentium I I think
00:50<sney`>oof 586
00:50<southernc>i just had to fix a server with a 5 gig / and it ran out of space lol
00:50<sney`>yeah but that was probably serving something
00:50<sney`>I bet /var was huge
00:50<k1lumin4t1>I'm not planning on making it a server
00:50<k1lumin4t1>it's for a poor girl
00:50<sney`>a debian minimal install is pretty small and even the kernel sources are only a couple hundred megs at most
00:50<k1lumin4t1>that has no way to access a pc
00:51<k1lumin4t1>so I want to get Windows and Linux on it
00:51<sney`>and you're trying to go the OLPC route with the whole open source thing? cool idea
00:51<k1lumin4t1>so she can have a taste of both
00:51<k1lumin4t1>but i'm going to install a "lightweight" linux
00:51<sney`>you might want to scrounge up a bigger hard drive somewhere so she can have a place to put all those inevitable mp3s
00:51<k1lumin4t1>using Debian and LXDE
00:51<southernc>not to bash debian but if shes a new user wouldnt ubuntu be a better choice ?
00:51-!-hamsand [] has quit [Quit: hamsand]
00:51<k1lumin4t1>sney, that's what the 10 GB one is for
00:51<k1lumin4t1>southernc, not really
00:51<sney`>debian is fine for a new user as long as the setup is already done ahead of time
00:52<k1lumin4t1>I'm in charge of that part
00:52<k1lumin4t1>and I have some experience
00:52<sney`>and support, I bet
00:52<southernc>i suppose but isnt ubuntu more user friendly ...
00:52<sney`>not in the day-to-day stuff really southernc
00:52-!-arkadiusz [] has left #debian [Leaving]
00:52<adb> You will enjoy Debian I am sure. It really is more solid - even the unstable repos are better than Ubuntu stable.
00:52<k1lumin4t1>southernc, i can make debian user friendly for her
00:52<southernc>i dunno ive never used ubuntu just from what i hear
00:53<k1lumin4t1>she'll be only needing: word processing, internet and multimedia
00:53<sney`>once a good DE with buttons is all set up, people would hardly notice the difference between the two ("oh, is that a different background?") it's all about being able to do the stuff they want to do, which is extremely simple
00:53<k1lumin4t1>with lxde, abiword and some lightweight web browser and audacious it could work
00:53<sney`>abiword, iceweasel, mplayer/etc
00:53<k1lumin4t1>iceweasel eats too much ram
00:53<sney`>urgh audacious. is audacious good now? the lead developer is a raging cockhole
00:54<sney`>I refuse to use it on those grounds
00:54-!-AtnNn [] has quit [Quit: foobar]
00:54<k1lumin4t1>well it's fine
00:54<k1lumin4t1>I would enjoy giving her amarok
00:54<k1lumin4t1>but the machine won't bear it
00:54<sney`>since it's so old maybe you should just stick with old xmms
00:54<k1lumin4t1>xmms it's out of the game
00:54<sney`>the original winamp clone
00:55<sney`>I have no idea if it's even still in apt
00:55<k1lumin4t1>but xmms doesn't exist anymore
00:55<k1lumin4t1>not in debian
00:55<k1lumin4t1>adama, xmms2 plain sux
00:55<k1lumin4t1>adb, xmms2 is unintelligible
00:55<adb> audacious is ok
00:55<sney`>I bet that adama guy hates it when people tab him instead of adb
00:56<southernc>is bind/dns required to have a mail server / webserver ?
00:56<k1lumin4t1>southernc, sure
00:56<k1lumin4t1>not bind exactly
00:56<k1lumin4t1>but some dns solution
00:56<sney`>yeah, you need dns but you don't need locally handled dns
00:56-!-penpen [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:56-!-reddos [] has joined #debian
00:56<sney`>usually if you're colocating a server or *something* there are other dns options that you can use
00:56<k1lumin4t1>yes, you could go with third party providers
00:56<k1lumin4t1>like zoneedit
00:56<k1lumin4t1>or afraid
00:56-!-knoppix_ [] has joined #debian
00:57<k1lumin4t1>or if it's for internal mail dnsmasq
00:57-!-reddos [] has quit []
00:57<sney`>or even the dinky free ones like no-ip
00:57<southernc>im trying to figure oput a way to get it to work without using a dns server on a box i dont really want dns open to the world
00:57<k1lumin4t1>sney`, zoneedit and afraid are free also
00:57-!-knoppix_ is now known as Guest1019
00:57<k1lumin4t1>southernc, zoneedit, afraid, dyndns, no-ip
00:57<sney`>well if you're just doing local development you can use hosts files to associate to an ip address
00:57-!-Guest1019 [] has quit []
00:58<k1lumin4t1>that'd require some working
00:58-!-markup [] has joined #debian
00:58<sney`>httpd/mail will work just fine as an ip address
00:58<k1lumin4t1>editing the hosts file manually can be a nagg
00:58<sney`>again, just talking LAN stuff here
00:58<sney`>with a small LAN
00:58<sney`>for development purpsoses. etc.
00:58<southernc>hrrmm well something to ponder with anyway
00:58<k1lumin4t1>do it the right way man
00:58<k1lumin4t1>use some third-party
00:59<k1lumin4t1>back to my issue
00:59<k1lumin4t1>two 2 GB HD
00:59<southernc>soory thanks for the advice lol
00:59<k1lumin4t1>will it fit?
00:59<k1lumin4t1>don't worry
00:59<k1lumin4t1>I mean windows XP...
00:59<k1lumin4t1>not sure
00:59<k1lumin4t1>I'm just going to install the whole thing with linux
00:59<sney`>honestly, the last time I fit anything onto a hard drive that small was when debian potato was new, and most people still used win98
01:00<sney`>so I don't know! it'd be an adventure!
01:00-!-markup [] has quit []
01:00<k1lumin4t1>well let's roll then
01:00<sney`>yeah besides if your user wanted to use windows she probably wouldn't be in love with some kind of clunky windows 9x. she'd want XP at least, which is probably not going to work well enough to be any good
01:00<k1lumin4t1>the two OSes HD on the first ide drive
01:01<k1lumin4t1>and the other one as slave on the second ide drive with a CDROM
01:01<k1lumin4t1>sney`, that's exactly what I want
01:01<k1lumin4t1>sney`, see, she's going to notice how linux can manage well on that machine
01:01<sney`>XP running like crap?
01:01<k1lumin4t1>yes :D
01:01<sney`>well then you'll get it
01:02<sney`>I do know XP supports the original Pentium, I've seen it "running" on a 60mhz thinkpad
01:02<sney`>install will take approximately 1 month
01:02<k1lumin4t1>and then I can elaborate on the idea that windows sux
01:02<sney`>big M. not millihertz
01:03<sney`>sometimes my shift key doesn't cooperate
01:03<dpkg>Damnit Jim! It's YOU. Y-O-U. Not *U*. U is a letter. YOU is a word. See ne1, or wud. Dutch for 'you' (formal singular). See
01:03<Piratero>sney`: i wasn't trying to be a douche
01:03<Piratero>sney`: i was just asking if such a laptop exists
01:03-!-bruno_naibert [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:03<Piratero>in other words, i'm surprised there was a 60mhz laptop
01:04<sney`>I doubt there's a 60mhz laptop, but there was definitely a 60Mhz laptop
01:04<sney`>ask the annals of history. I don't remember.
01:04<Piratero>if you're going to correct me
01:04<Piratero>it isn't hz
01:04<Piratero>it's Hz
01:05<loudergood_>heh, I have lenny on a pentium 133MHz laptop
01:05-!-nimrood [] has joined #debian
01:05<sney`>approximately 60 bazillion cycles per second, but still not fast enough to run windows xp worth a damn. it also had one of those foldy keyboards, remember the one they had those TV ads for? it was cool. it had a cd-rom drive which was the bee's knees when it was new. IBM sure made some great laptops.
01:07-!-mode/#debian [+l 363] by debhelper
01:10<craigevil>debian will fit on a 2gb, my install on my eee 701 is only 1.4GB and thats with lxde and some kde apps
01:10<k1lumin4t1>craigevil, thanks for the tip
01:12<Piratero>how can i disable root from logging into one of the terminals?

01:37<southernc>anyone know why when trying to open certain programs from the menus it wont open or it looks like its opening and just hangs and closes on gnome ?
01:38<southernc>for instance trying to open synaptic i click nothing happens
01:39<southernc>anyone else experience this problem
01:40<drakeman>southernc, what certain programs?
01:41<sladi>southernc Tried to launch from console?
01:41<drakeman>southernc, any error log?
01:41<southernc>like in this case its synaptic but it happens with a bunch others like xchat sometimes terminal
01:41<southernc>if i type synaptic in terminal i get
01:42-!-andy_ [] has joined #debian
01:42<southernc>no protocol specifiesd
01:42<southernc>(synaptic:12518): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0.0
01:42<drakeman>you get that message when you try to open any program?
01:43<southernc>well i just reinstalled and this is the first time i tried openening a program that wouldnt open from terminal so im not sure
01:44<drakeman>what you get when you type echo $DISPLAY in terminal?P
01:44<southernc>but like i just tried opening sessions from the menu
01:44<southernc>iot shows the box on the toolbar it has a waiting icon then it just goes away and never opens
01:45<southernc> echo $DISPLAY
01:46<Piratero>looks like debian isn't for me
01:46<drakeman>southernc, write this in console sudo synaptic --display :0
01:46<southernc>i actually cant even open an archive
01:46<Piratero>arch linux seems to hold more ties with freebs
01:46<Piratero>too bad :(
01:46<drakeman>then... sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
01:47<southernc>should i use kernel framebuffer device interface
01:48<drakeman>plop, i use the default
01:48-!-Piratero [] has left #debian [bye]
01:50<southernc>yea applications still hang and never open
01:50<southernc>(synaptic:12689): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0.0
01:50<drakeman>southernc, is a clean installation?
01:51<southernc>about 20 minutes ago ive installed nothing but the base system and display manager
01:51<drakeman>southernc, apt-get install gksu
01:52<southernc>gksu is already the newest version.
01:52<southernc>gksu set to manually installed.
01:52<sladi>southernc, Have you installedthe Gnome metapackage?
01:53<southernc>i havent installed anything
01:53<southernc>thats not instyalled by the installer
01:54<sladi>I see, besides base system you had Desktop Envidroment selected too I guess?
01:54<southernc>yea thats what i meant
01:55<sladi>southernc, NP, sorry I have noe idea but I recently installed to try KDE4 and I unselected everything, not even base system. Then from console in aptitude I installed the KDE stuff.
01:55<sladi>It pulled everything needed to, like xorg for example
01:56<southernc>i might try that
01:56-!-june [~june@] has joined #debian
01:56<southernc>brb ill try logging out and back in
01:56-!-southernc [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:57-!-mosno [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:59-!-southernc [] has joined #debian
01:59<southernc>well it works logging out and back in but thats pretty anoying to have to do that
01:59<k1lumin4t1>quick question
01:59<k1lumin4t1>I just can't remember
01:59<southernc>maybe ill try using the fglrx drivers
01:59<k1lumin4t1>in an IDE cable
01:59<k1lumin4t1>there are three connectors
02:00<southernc>ehhh no
02:00<k1lumin4t1>one goes to mobo
02:00<k1lumin4t1>and the other two (the close ones) are for each drive
02:00<k1lumin4t1>which one is the master?
02:00<southernc>the farhest away
02:00<southernc>the one in the middle i think is the slave
02:00<k1lumin4t1>I just forgot about that
02:01<drakeman>:S :S :S :S :S :S :S
02:01<southernc>but you could always just change the jumpers
02:01<k1lumin4t1>yes, but I wan't one particular drive to be master
02:01<drakeman>Master ---> Slave ---> Cable Select
02:01<drakeman>k1lumin4t1, set the jumper to master in that particular drive.
02:02<k1lumin4t1>and then in which connector of the ide cable do i place it?
02:02<k1lumin4t1>any of them?
02:02<drakeman>and in slave (99% of the cases, no jumper) the others drives
02:02<southernc><k1lumin4t1>: what i mean is that if its an older mobo you could run into problems if the jumpers on the drives arent set right

02:10<drakeman>unknow hi
02:10<drakeman>southernc, what works? let me know to increase my knowledge, what was the solution foryour error?
02:11<southernc>ide have to pastebin it hang on
02:12<drakeman>southernc, ok!
02:12<drakeman>hey, anyone knows the name of the package that checks any installation for bugs before install on system?
02:14<drakeman>cahoot, , thanks, i have it installed, but i think im going to remove it..
02:15<drakeman>southernc, you do all that to solve the GTK warning error?
02:15<southernc>gotta be a display error with xorg
02:15<drakeman>southernc, , ohhh. many steps.
02:16<southernc>copy paste
02:16<drakeman>southernc, o you get that from a website?
02:16<drakeman>southernc, then?
02:16<drakeman>southernc, intuition?
02:16<southernc>it can be copy paste now though

02:17<drakeman>southernc, well thanks anyways for the solution, i though it will be less steps.
02:17<southernc>i read somewhere a while back about problems with my 4800 card
02:17<drakeman>i see!
02:18<drakeman>hey, why the people always compares ubuntu and debian, and try to say ohh ubuntu is better, but if it is based on debian how can be better? ....
02:19<southernc>and there was alot of sites that show ways to get it to work but if you did ati --initial it basically renders youyr disoplay useless without dpkg -reconfiguring xorg you have to load the kernel modules to get it to work right
02:19<drakeman>southernc, ok. i see, thanks for the info...

06:20<hever>yes sure you're right.
06:20<locklace>hever: anyway, although it could be a hw issue, the easiest thing to do pragmatically is to load a newish (.29/.30) kernel, run with it for a bit and see if the problem still appears.
06:21<locklace>sts: don't suppose ifup -v prints anything useful?

07:30<locklace>hever: not really. the key is the complete output of the panic message; if you can get that by taking a screenshot, that's probably easiest. setting up a serial console is another option. there are other ways to arrange to capture panic messages, but they're more involved.

08:22<dpkg>Seeing "There are no public keys available"? This means that the Release file has been signed by a key which you do not have. If it's signed by another key which you do have, you can ignore the warning. Otherwise, you can add the key listed *AFTER* checking the validity of the signatures on the key. Ask me about <2006 key> or <etch key> for more details. The current key will be linked at

09:34<dpkg>BitchX is an old and unmaintained <IRC> client built on epic and ircII. As a Debian package, screwed up and not falling back to IPv4 when IPv6 ain't possible.

09:46-!-loudergood_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
09:46<Nazcafan>nostradamus1971: so you can use it
09:47<Nazcafan>usually, you can use the mount command
09:47<Nazcafan>its syntax is: mount device location
09:47<nostradamus1971>ah, ok, but one dvd i cantwatch because i get an error message that it is unmount. so you mean when i install software i have to mount it?

09:48<Nazcafan>to mount what?
09:49<nostradamus1971>Nazcafan, iam not sure if i get it
09:49<nostradamus1971>Nazcafan, understand i mean
09:49<Nazcafan>nostradamus1971: usually, you don't need to mount a video DVD in order to watch it,
09:49<nostradamus1971>Nazcafan, hm, ok. then
09:49<Nazcafan>nostradamus1971: the player can access the device corresponding to the drive
09:50<Nazcafan>nostradamus1971: e.g: vlc /dev/hda if /dev/hda refers do your dvd drive
09:50<nostradamus1971>Nazcafan, the thing is, i can watch all other dvd's acceppt the one.. well, maybe some country issues
09:51<nostradamus1971>Nazcafan, xine, i am using
09:51<nostradamus1971>Nazcafan, btw, its excellent
09:51<Nazcafan>I don't know how to use it from the command line
09:51<nostradamus1971>Nazcafan, from the shell you mean?
09:52<nostradamus1971>Nazcafan, just type "xine" and thats it
09:52<nostradamus1971>maybe you have to install it first but you will see the message then
09:52<Nazcafan>I meant the command line OPTIONS to pass to xine so it directly plays whatever is in your drive

13:54<stuckey>Why did the installer install lilo? It never installs that.
13:54<cwood_>stuckey: Boot with your install cd or repair cd, perhaps? Or make yourself a grub boot disk and use the grub command line to manually boot. Once you're booted you can fix it.

14:03-!-Tobiaske [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
14:03<cwood_>It's just a boot loader. Your system is as hosed as if an Apache install went wrong. Your path to recovery is to boot using another available boot loader (like the installed lilo or a grub boot disk) and then fix things per what dpkg said.
14:04<k6orj>it is not hosed just need to pug grub back in! This is not Winblows you have control!
14:04<k6orj>pug = put
14:04<ml|>dpkg: tell stuckey about fixmbr
14:04<ml|>stuckey: try that
14:05<cwood_>If you don't want to spend the time to learn how to use the available boot loaders (lilo and grub), that is not a software issue. Still, if you can reproduce the install issue it will be worth filing a bug. Installs shouldn't leave systems unbootable.

15:32<jclinton>but it's not working; the versions i have specified are still showing up in apt-get upgrade -V. what am i doing wrong?

15:34<jclinton>stuckey, try again using grub this time; might have better luck
15:34<stuckey>jclinton: how do I do this?
15:34<jclinton>stuckey, when it asks you: lilo or grub, choose the default, grub
15:34<stuckey>jclinton: it didn't give me a choice
15:35<stuckey>It just did it
15:35<jclinton>stuckey, try a fresh install

15:35<jclinton>stuckey, also, you can try expert mode which is on the boot menu when you start the installer
15:36<jclinton>stuckey, it asks more questions
15:36<stuckey>Could I use a live grub cd to install grub?
15:36<stuckey>Someone said something about that but I'm not sure how it would work.
15:36<jclinton>stuckey, no, you're not knowledgeable enough to do that
15:37<stuckey>so I'm just supposed to toy-around with the installer?
15:37<ml|>stuckey: you need to docs howtos on lvm normal fixes will not work for you
15:37-!-vook [] has joined #debian
15:37<jclinton>or just reinstall, as i said, with grub
15:38<ml|>dpkg: tell stuckey about lvm
15:38<stuckey>jclinton: I'm telling you it doesn't give me the option; it just installs lilo.
15:38<jclinton>stuckey, and i just told you to do it in expert mode and it will
15:38<stuckey>ml|: what about this whole chroot in the root filesystem stuff?
15:38<stuckey>jclinton: it will?
15:38<jclinton>stuckey, too hard
15:38<jclinton>stuckey, yes
15:38<stuckey>jclinton: how do you konw?
15:38<jclinton>stuckey, re: chroot or installer?
15:39<jclinton>stuckey, the kinds of questions you are asking
15:39<ml|>stuckey: no about lvm it worls different apperantly, never used it my self gl
15:39<stuckey>ml|: maybe I have to mount it first before trying to chroot into it.
15:40<stuckey>jclinton: okay thanks, I'll try to do the isntall again
15:40<stuckey>jclinton: you know this is a logical volume, right?
15:40<jclinton>stuckey, yes, lilo is deprecated

15:42<vook>I hope stucky isn't reinstalling to get grub
15:42<azeem>oh stuckey left
15:43<nesuno2>When I type a bad password, I get "Invalid credentials" too, so pam known that the pw is correct or not.

15:52<jclinton>stuckey, that was an amazingly fast install

15:53<jclinton>stuckey, are you using the guided partitioner? or doing it manually?
15:53<stuckey>jclinton: naturally I have to do it manually
15:53<somae7>we don't have an eternet card at the moment
15:53<jclinton>somae7, then it will not work
15:53<stuckey>jclinton: I have another LV with data on it.
15:53-!-buzztardo [] has joined #debian
15:53-!-buzztardo [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
15:54<stuckey>I can't just re-install with guided partitioning.
15:54<jclinton>stuckey, if you do it manually, you should create a 200mb /boot partition in addition to your / partition which is on LVM
15:54<nesuno2>jclinton: But when I type good pw, I get only Failure, but when I type a bad pw, I get Invalid credential message too. So I think the password goes to PAM from LDAP, but my /etc/pam.d/common-* config fails in the end.
15:54<stuckey>I spent hours getting up this fucking LV because I thought I could dual-boot into sid with it.
15:54<jclinton>stuckey, /boot should be outside LVM

15:57<stuckey>jclinton: and then re install the lv?
15:57-!-buzztardo [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
15:57<jclinton>stuckey, create the /boot you need using the manual partitioner outside of the LVM and put your / inside your LVM
15:57<jclinton>stuckey, you can do both inside the manual partitioner
15:57<stuckey>jclinton: "put my / inside my lvm"? Could you be more specific please?
15:58<nesuno2>jclinton: passwd: User not known to the underlying authentication module
15:58<stuckey>jclinton: The drive is full... I've got two lv's, one I just made and the other will all my shit on it.
15:58<jclinton>stuckey, how much of your drive is a PV?
15:58<nesuno2>jclinton: passwd: password unchanged
15:58<stuckey>jclinton: all of it except 256MB for /boot
15:58<jclinton>nesuno2, so fix that first and then i think login will work
15:58<stuckey>jclinton: well that's also a physical volume (/boot)
15:59<jclinton>stuckey, arg, don't mix terms... a PV in LVM terms is the underlying partition that it uses for allocation
15:59<nesuno2>jclinton: auth log says:
15:59<jclinton>stuckey, is /boot a LV on a PV on LVM?
15:59<nesuno2>jclinton: passwd[13652]: pam_unix(passwd:chauthtok): user "user3" does not exist in /etc/passwd
15:59<stuckey>jclinton: /boot is a physical voume
15:59<jclinton>nesuno2, so your common isn't right
16:00<jclinton>nesuno2, or you need ldappasswd which is rare; i don't know which
16:00<jclinton>stuckey, as in /dev/sda1?
16:00<stuckey>jclinton: exactly
16:00<azeem>you said /dev/sda earlier
16:00<jclinton>stuckey, and there is no other linux distribution installed?
16:00<nesuno2>jclinton: Yes, but I don't know what to write here. I tried to assemble the files from
16:00<stuckey>jclinton: just two instances of debian lenny
16:00<azeem>jclinton: it's the boot of an earlier lenny install I guess
16:00-!-ThaMentor [] has joined #debian
16:00<jclinton>nesuno2, i can't help you any further
16:01<stuckey>Was, I suppose this lilo shit has overwritten it.
16:01<jclinton>stuckey, you cannot share the /boot partition between two installations
16:01<jclinton>stuckey, or, you can but its a very very bad idea
16:01<jclinton>stuckey, you need exactly one for each
16:01<stuckey>jclinton: is that why it made me use lilo?
16:02<jclinton>stuckey, i'm guessing, though i cannot be sure
16:02<stuckey>jclinton: okay so screw this whole dual boot thing; I'll just delete the other logical volume; how do i get my system back?
16:02<jclinton>stuckey, it likely put your /boot inside your LVM in an attempt to avoid erasing your existing /dev/sda1
16:02-!-madrescher [] has joined #debian
16:03<jclinton>stuckey, well, if your lenny installation is missing from the LILO menu, that's a bad sign
16:03<nesuno2>jclinton: Thx this, I continuing google for these errors:)
16:03<stuckey>jclinton: I don't get a lilo menu
16:03<stuckey>jclinton: before I had grub
16:03-!-_Rolfo [] has joined #debian
16:03<jclinton>stuckey, at this point you should attempt to rescue your lenny install using the installer's rescue mode
16:04<stuckey>jclinton: how exactly?
16:04-!-upsy [] has joined #debian
16:04<jclinton>stuckey, if indeed it was using grub, you can do the chroot steps mentioned before
16:04<jclinton>stuckey, it's going from lilo to grub via chroot that would have been too hard
16:04<stuckey>jclinton: I tried using "chroot /dev/mapper/debian-root" but it said No such directory
16:04<jclinton>stuckey, boot rescue mode and it will give you a menu of found debian installations
16:04<stuckey>jclinton: I didn't see this menu
16:05<jclinton>stuckey, then it's probably been deleted
16:05<stuckey>jclinton: but the files are still there; I haven't lost them.

16:06<stuckey>jclinton: I spent a lot of time trying to correctly make another Logical volume

16:06<stuckey>so take note
16:07-!-_Rolfo [] has joined #debian
16:07<simNIX>to backup ...
16:07<jclinton>stuckey, oh, no, it's quite possible if you know what you're doing
16:07<stuckey>jclinton: Really?
16:07<jclinton>stuckey, oh yes
16:07<stuckey>jclinton: Man, I wish you were all those times I asked about this in this channel.
16:07<stuckey>jclinton: Care to tell me where I went wrong?
16:07<jclinton>stuckey, my best guess would be that you destroyed your working installation during the LVM resize step
16:08<jclinton>stuckey, it's hard to be certain though
16:08<stuckey>jclinton: anyway to test this?
16:08<jclinton>stuckey, try rescue again and attempt to manually mount your original install using mount /dev/mapper/whatever to /target
16:08<stuckey>jclinton: I do that after I go through all the menus and it gives me the little prompt?
16:08<jclinton>stuckey, then continue with the rescue steps, chroot, etc using /target as the chroot directory
16:08<jclinton>stuckey, yes
16:09<stuckey>jclinton: and if I get it, I can install grub?
16:09<jclinton>stuckey, yes, likely...
16:09<stuckey>jclinton: and if not?
16:09<jclinton>stuckey, unless you destroyed /dev/sda1
16:10<jclinton>stuckey, if you cannot install grub, you can use rescue mode to copy your data to a USB disk or similar
16:10<jclinton>stuckey, and then reinstall fresh
16:10<stuckey>jclinton: I've a lot of data; this could take a while ;)
16:10<jclinton>stuckey, yes, at this point i would strongly consider not wasting any more time on the bootloader and just start recovery immediately
16:11<stuckey>jclinton: okay so I boot into recovery mode and try the chroot

17:54<adb>stuckey: use USB stick as boot/ device
17:54<jclinton>stuckey, you could install using the testing installer AFTER you install grub to /dev/sda1 instead of /dev/sda
17:54<jclinton>stuckey, testing has grub2 which can work with LVM without a dedicated /boot, last i checked
17:55<jclinton>stuckey, so you could install directly to a new LV with only one partition: /
17:55<jclinton>stuckey, grub2 would get installed to /dev/sda and point to /dev/sda1 to get back in to your stable install

21:34<Slurb>that was only with sid
21:34<Slurb>i have lenny now
21:35<Slurb>and i was stating that so maybe he could run stable and still get around the hang issue
21:35<Slurb>if its in lenny-backports
21:36<Slurb>what i would have liked to learn is how to control the depends part of it
21:36<craigevil>simple you disable recommends/suggests
21:37<Slurb>then you can break packages?
21:37<craigevil>Slurb: i havent in 5 yrs of running sid
21:37<craigevil>worse thing to was kde4 :)
21:37<Slurb>i wanted to force an install of a package that apt said causes other packages to be broken
21:38<Slurb>i wanted wine on sid
21:38<Slurb>couldnt manage it
21:38<craigevil>usually you just have to wait a day or two until the depends issus are fixed

21:45<Slurb>ther is one sid package i want and the developer has a webside with a deb binary but the link is down at
21:46<dpkg>methinks downgrade is not possible with apt-get currently. No future support is anticipated. Some programs change the binary format of their files in a way that cannot be rolled back later, and package maintainer scripts provide ways to upgrade to new config file formats but not ways to downgrade. You can always try to downgrade a package using dpkg -i <olderversion.deb>. Also see <partial downgrade>, or <sdn>

22:47<k1lumin4t1>USB drives are automatically mounted through dolphin and device notifier plasmoid, but not CDs
22:48<interbird>hate midnight-commander is now (squeeze++) distributed with the internal-editor *off* and using nano with half-tabs on...; what nono decided that ?
22:48-!-foka [~foka@] has joined #debian
22:48<k1lumin4t1>it happened once that during an upgrade all of a sudden a CD that was inside the CD tray got automounted, and that happened casually when the mime-support package was being upgraded
22:51<interbird>i'm no kde user, but maybe it is somewhere in the preferences? to automount cd's? maybe deeper ? (dunno what the gconf equivalent for kde is...)
22:52<adb>k1lumin4t1: cat /etc/debian_version
22:52<k1lumin4t1>adb, squeeze
22:53<dpkg>If you're running one of the desktop environments in Debian, then ask me about <gnome-volume-manager>, <kde automount>, or <thunar-volman>. If you want something for the command line, then ask me about <halevt>, <ivman>, or <usb mount>. For a completely different approach to automounting, ask me about <autofs>.
22:54<k1lumin4t1>adb, how can I ask dpkg about the kde automount thing? sorry
22:55<interbird>!kde automount
22:55<adb>!kde automount
22:55<dpkg>To automatically mount optical disks and USB keys under KDE, install kdebase-kio-plugins and add the needed users to the plugdev group. You will have to log out and back in before it works.
22:55<k1lumin4t1>ok thanks
22:56<k1lumin4t1>I msged it
22:56<k1lumin4t1>but... the thing is that USB drives do mount automatically
22:56<k1lumin4t1>and my user is in the plugdev group
22:57<interbird>is the cd manually mountable? (it could be a bad cd) did you try different cd's ? (data-cds)
22:57<k1lumin4t1>yes, it is
22:57<k1lumin4t1>I can mount it through cli mount nice and easy

22:58-!-stuckey_ [] has joined #debian
22:58<k1lumin4t1>and I don't have a single clue how could I debug
22:58<interbird>i'm no kde-dude... looked in the kde-preferences? (maybe it differentiates between usb and cd media? -- dunno --)
22:59<k1lumin4t1>or where/what to debug
22:59<interbird>kde 3.x or 4.x ?
22:59-!-alvarezp [alvarezp@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:59<interbird>does dolphin see the cd ?
23:00<k1lumin4t1>nor dolphin nor device notifier
23:00<k1lumin4t1>but, k3b does
23:00<interbird>so, how do you mount it manually as you said you could ?
23:00<k1lumin4t1>and amarok does see audio CDs
23:00<k1lumin4t1>and kaffeine video ones
23:00<k1lumin4t1>I have a line in fstab for it
23:00<k1lumin4t1>so I just do mount -a
23:01<interbird>does lsscsi show the device? is it hdx or sdx or scdx or srx? do you know that ?
23:01<interbird>mount -l
23:02<interbird>ahh, maybe coment-out the line in fstab with a #
23:02<k1lumin4t1>let me see
23:02<k1lumin4t1>it is sr0
23:02<interbird>fstab is "mount-at-boot"; it overrides "removable media"
23:03<k1lumin4t1>but I have the same line in my laptop
23:03<k1lumin4t1>and it works fine
23:03<k1lumin4t1>it's a SATA CD/DVD drive
23:03<k1lumin4t1>in my laptop is IDE
23:03<interbird>coumment-out the sr0 line in fstab with a # and then /etc/init.d/udev restart
23:03<k1lumin4t1>interbird, there's no lscsi command
23:04<k1lumin4t1>let me try that
23:05<interbird>apt-get install lsscsi, but my guess is you have to comment-out the sr0 line in fstab and do a /etc/init.d/udev restart and reinsert the cd
23:05<k1lumin4t1>i did

23:05<mason_>how do i sign in as root user to edit the sources.list
23:06<interbird>dunno kde -- evil... -- reboot
23:06<interbird>open a terminal
23:06<interbird>give password
23:06<k1lumin4t1>interbird, huh?
23:07<interbird>if password correct. #-prompt appears
23:08<mason_>is adobe flash plugin backport safe?
23:08<interbird>k1lumin4t1: sorry, i'm not a kde-dude; tried to propose some default things; if that does not help maybe #debian-kde can help you further
23:08<craigevil>mason_: as safe as using Flash normally is
23:09<k1lumin4t1>interbird, yes, I understand. I tried there, but no answer so far
23:09<interbird>adobe itself never safe...
23:09<k1lumin4t1>interbird, and I've been mingling with this issue for some weeks now
23:09<mason_>craigevil, thanks just making sure because to think of backport is like a back door opening. When computers first came out backport was used to hack things. Just making sure.
23:10<craigevil>mason_: backports are just newer packages that are made to run on lenny/stable
23:11<mason_>craigevil, thanks geese terms have changed so much.
23:11<interbird>no source, no safety
23:12<mason_>craigevil, now just to think why cant i save sources.list cause it doesnt give me permission.
23:12<craigevil>mason_: open a terminal then type su nano /etc/apt/sources.list enter your root password
23:13<mason_>craigevil, you mean sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
23:13<craigevil>if you have sudo setup sure
23:14<interbird>enter password
23:14<interbird>nano /etc/apt/sources.list
23:14<interbird>change file
23:14<interbird>write changes
23:17<mason_>can some one give me link to backport for flash plugin i kinda lost it and google is being dumb.

23:20<mason_>hmm it says after doing this my system wouldnt be stable any more is this true?
23:20<interbird>you mix
23:20<mason_>i dont get what you mean interbird
23:21-!-alvarezp [alvarezp@] has joined #debian
23:21<interbird>mason_: backports are not a part of your system
23:22<interbird>so, backports "could" make your system unstable
23:22<interbird>it means you go "out of bounds" for a thing not present in your system
23:23<interbird>so, going out of the "stable" debian branch (Lenny), with backports or mixed-updates, makes it non-Lenny
23:23-!-loudergood [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:23<craigevil>wtf backports are made for stable
23:24<interbird>no they are not; read the notice accompanied with backports
23:27<mason_>i get it so its still stable yet debian does not support it.
23:27-!-foka [~foka@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:27<mason_>atleast not yet.
23:27<mason_>but once they have tested it they can there for call it stable.
23:28<craigevil>mason_: stable doesnt get new packages other than security/bug fixes, backports is just a way to get newer packages
23:28-!-arndot [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:29-!-alephnull [~alok@] has joined #debian
23:29<interbird>something like that; so the answer to your question if backports can make your system unstable is yes and you are not on (pure) lenny anymore; practice is that backports are well tested and you should have no problems; still, if you do, don't say you run lenny because that is not true anymore...
23:30<mason_>well what if i uninstall the backport.
23:31<craigevil>interbird: that makes no sense, thats like saying you installed the opera .deb from and now your system isn't lenny
23:31-!-arndot [] has joined #debian
23:32<interbird>craigevil: is opera in the lenny repository ?
23:33<craigevil>doesnt matter it doesnt change the fact that you are using lenny, jesus what are you RMS incognito
23:33-!-MrNaz [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:34<interbird>craigevil: don't get nasty; i'm just saying that lenny is it's install and it's repositiries; if you install opera from their site, and it breaks lenny; who would be to blame?
23:34<interbird>lenny or opera?
23:34<mason_>if im correct its like saying im gonna install emerald theme manager. Yet im not on lennys system any more.
23:34<mason_>Because emerald theme manager isnt stable.
23:35<craigevil>thats not the point the point is you would still be using lenny
23:35<mason_>the key answer yes.
23:36<interbird>mason_: ok, then problems that arrive cannot be posted to the "lenny mailing list" because it's not "lenny" anymore... (catch my drift ?)
23:36<mason_>yes i do

23:55<Student>nothing special about it
23:56<interbird>well, the UMC87209ax is quite normal/common
23:56<Student>so how to configure it so i don't have to go open network every time it goes or connection goes off?
