00:00-!-jcwu [] has joined #debian
00:01<sasdl>would be nice to work out eh?
00:02<happydufus>sasdl do you use DHCP?
00:03-!-ajonat [~ajonat@] has quit [Quit: ajonat]
00:04<sasdl>happydufus: one moment...
00:07-!-ajonat [~ajonat@] has joined #debian
00:08-!-behanw [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:08<happydufus>As I uderstand things if you use DHCP the DHCP client will rewrite the contents of resolv.conf with the information it obtains from the DHCP server

00:13<sasdl>happydufus: sry, phone call. i found something call dhcdbd in the init scripts which i thought may have been it....
00:14<Bizurke>lol, I just finished reading the reslvconf man page as you mentioned resolv.conf being overwritten
00:14<Bizurke>yes the DHCP client will overwrite /etc/resolv.conf
00:14-!-craigevil [] has joined #debian
00:14<sasdl>happydufus: yeah possible....
00:14<sasdl>but every couple of minutes?!
00:15<sasdl>surely it's only once on network initialisation
00:15<happydufus>DHCP is the most common way for a PC to get its IP settings when it connects to a network, eg a broadband modem/router will act as a DHCP server
00:16<sasdl>could try removing dhcp and then working out the ppp connection manually if it's not automatic.

00:17-!-compgrokker [~compgrokk@] has quit [Quit: fuck them all, let chlamydia sort them out]
00:17<happydufus>If you use DHCP you need edit the file /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf
00:17<sasdl>on the upside - my nameserver is working in the 1minute i had between resetting resolv.conf and it being reset!
00:19-!-chitchat [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:19-!-faw [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:20<happydufus>for lines you want in your resolv.conf use the prepend command in your dhclient.conf (in mine I have prepend domain-name-servers; )
00:22-!-adb [] has joined #debian
00:23<sasdl>ok... can i stop it from overwriting the domain configuration as well or is that only NIS (i have no idea what NIS is yet! :))
00:23<Bizurke>yes you can. and no I don't remember how
00:23-!-tzafrir_laptop [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:23<Bizurke>I am looking for the same thing though
00:24<PROject-Emerald>did BT4 take on the debian framework
00:24<Bizurke>PROject-Emerald, yes it did
00:24<Bizurke>and it's freakin sweet
00:25<Bizurke>I've considered installing it as a primary OS for a laptop actually
00:25<PROject-Emerald>D: I can't boot from an external DVD drive so I have to run it in virtualbox -_-
00:26<Bizurke>ah, I've had that problem before
00:26<Bizurke>get it booted, take a snapshot and loading is nice and easy then ;-)
00:26<PROject-Emerald>:'( I dont have the money to buy a DVD drive lol
00:26<Bizurke>they're cheap now days, when you get extra cash
00:26-!-ColbyIsColby [] has joined #debian
00:26<Bizurke>hell a DVD burner is only $20
00:26<ColbyIsColby>hi all.
00:27<PROject-Emerald>I need a job.
00:27-!-jidm [~chatzilla@] has joined #debian
00:27<Bizurke>I just took a 1 week temporary job removing hazardous materials from flooded buildings for minimum wage :-(
00:27<Bizurke>I'm used to working for a decent wage in Tech support
00:28<Bizurke>12-14hr days for 6 days for freakin minimum wage. But you gotta do what you gotta do right
00:28<PROject-Emerald>why does this happen to me? -_-
00:28<ColbyIsColby>I have a question about one of the .iso's.
00:29<PROject-Emerald>Im updating virtualbox and its updating at 9.2KBPS
00:29-!-arthurfurlan [~arthurfur@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:29<Bizurke>ColbyIsColby, I can *try* to help
00:29-!-chitchat [] has joined #debian
00:30<PROject-Emerald>*nix is pretty much 100% all community maintained?
00:30<ColbyIsColby>I downloaded the XCFE and LXDE iso
00:31<ColbyIsColby>for PPC.
00:31<ColbyIsColby>would i need an internet connection to install it?
00:32-!-happydufus [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
00:32<ColbyIsColby>or is all the necessary files included?
00:32<Bizurke>if you get the entire first CD then no
00:32<Bizurke>that will install the base system and windows manager
00:32-!-happydufus [] has joined #debian
00:32-!-sasdl [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:32<Bizurke>everything else can be apt'd after that when you do get a connection
00:32<ColbyIsColby>so that will give me a dekstop and the basics of debian.
00:32<ColbyIsColby>those basics would be... ?
00:32<Bizurke>the 699mb cd, not the 150mb or whatever
00:32<ColbyIsColby>any word processing?
00:33<ColbyIsColby>the 699mb cd.
00:33<Bizurke>I don't think so
00:33<Bizurke>I have a CD1 install right now let me check
00:33-!-sasdl_ [] has joined #debian
00:33<Bizurke>nope, just text editors
00:33<ColbyIsColby>anything else?
00:34<Bizurke>you could save an abiword .deb or something to a thumb drive maybe
00:34<Bizurke>but idk about depends
00:34<Bizurke>nano and gedit are basically it
00:34<ColbyIsColby>oh okay.
00:34-!-prathibha [~prathibha@] has joined #debian
00:35<ColbyIsColby>would Debian with XCFE run on a 128MB RAM with a 500MHz PPC processor?
00:35<ColbyIsColby>k, thanks.
00:35<ColbyIsColby>thats all i needed! thanks for the help.
00:35<Bizurke>I ran sarge with gnome on a 333mhz with 64mb ram for quite some time
00:35<ColbyIsColby>oh.. xD
00:35<ColbyIsColby>have a great night.
00:35<Bizurke>you too
00:36-!-ColbyIsColby [] has quit [Quit: User disconnected]
00:36-!-chetann [] has joined #debian
00:36<sasdl_><Bizurke>, <happydufus> you might like to know that the prepend stuff worked. and probably with first time modify (maybe as you say with dhcp client modifying the config file) it's come up with some usefull commenting at the top of the file... modified by Network Manager
00:36-!-swo [] has joined #debian
00:37-!-chetann is now known as chn
00:37<Bizurke>sasdl_, I uninstalled resolvconf and edited /etc/resolv.conf with my own nameservers and am going to attempt to get a new DHCP lease to see if that lets me manually set it
00:38<sasdl_>was that using ifup / ifdown?
00:38-!-bizurke_ [] has joined #debian
00:40<X-LP> <--- can anyone tell me why it says it cant find the file?
00:40<X-LP>or at least explain it to me :D

00:43<sasdl>no good. i'm off to read about network manager, network start up scripts, dhcp and dhcdbd - that should keep me going for a couple of days
00:43<bizurke_>what kills me is that I've done this before
00:43<bizurke_>and just can't remember

00:44-!-ajavid [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
00:44-!-ajavid [] has joined #debian
00:44<sasdl>i know... have been away from linux for a while and seems there's more auto stuff that is difficult to find info on... rather than just base config files and straight forward this is how you write the configs etc... ? or is that just me?
00:44<PROject-Emerald>If I run BT4 in VirtualBox I can still use it like normal right; with few limitations?
00:45<bizurke_>sasdl, it feels like in an effort to make things easier they created applications to auto write conf files, then you can't edit them yourself
00:45<bizurke_>which made it harder for _me_
00:46<sasdl>yeah... ok thanks - will keep looking

02:39<pat_>i was just writing a simple helloworld
02:41-!-happydufus [] has joined #debian
02:43<jm_>then you are either missing kernel headers or it uses wrong way to build it

02:54<sasdl>have submitted a bug yesterday to do with file modified date times, on closer inspection have more detail to be able to add - can't find it on the the debian bug list site though. should i submit another job with the additional information or wait for the other to come up?
02:55<pat_>thanks ill try to set it as option M
02:55<jm_>sasdl: which package was it for?
02:55-!-mosno [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
02:56<sasdl>i'm unsure, it seems to be GMT? +10 not working on either the desktop clock or at the system level where the files are being written
02:56-!-madrescher [] has joined #debian
02:57<pat_>thanks jm it works after I set it to option M
02:57<pat_>it was on option *
02:59<sasdl>found it. it probably got canned as soon as it came up. my timezone wasn't set at all so i guess that's gmt +0

03:29<sasdl>can i do this with aptitude?
03:30<jm_>sasdl: no, dpkg (if package is installed) or apt-file will help with that

07:00<dpkg>Your distribution may be based on Debian, but it is not Debian, and it probably falls short of Debian's standards (see <Debian policy>). Only Debian is supported on #debian. If your distribution has an IRC channel, you can use it instead. Even if your distribution has fewer people in its IRC channel, or doesn't have one, support for distributions other than Debian is offtopic on #debian.

07:46<themill>jm_: from the build logs, the package is built but awaiting upload. This manual step is usually why i386 lags, and as more DDs begin to use amd64, the i386 porters are getting more work than they used to. (I don't think it's lack of hardware, unlike other buildds where that's definitely the case)

07:52<adrian>I've been trying to run a script (/bin/sh ) in a lenny preseed file , but I need it to run just after disk-detect of before partman is loaded . Does anyone knows how I can do that ?
07:53<themill>jm_: there's been quite a thread on debian-devel of late about trying to improve this process. Some have suggested that if the build passes various lintian checks, that the build be autosigned and autouploaded. Others have opposed this suggestion. And as usual, the thread petered out without any real resolution.

11:16<mystified>Hans_Henrik: depends what you install. I usually do a minimal install and then add what I need, but I'd suggest selecting one of the preset bundles in the Debian installer first time through, just so you get some user friendly stuff like a graphical desktop!
11:16<mystified>Hans_Henrik: What are you planning to use Debian for - replacement Desktop - or to learn about running a server?
11:17<Hans_Henrik>im gonna use it to learn about running a server yeah (using my ooollldd gaming pc) - i can choose gui desktop from netinstall right?
11:20-!-gau [~gau@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
11:22<mystified>Hans_Henrik: yes - Desktop is an option from the netinstall installer, they all offer pretty much the same if you follow the Debian installation instructions. You'll probably want about 5GB of space as a minimum these days. It'll fit in a lot less, but then you'll want to try everything out and regret not having more space.

13:49-!-tuxwarrior [~ulises@] has joined #debian
13:49<Gothian>mataks, /etc/init.d/gdm stop
13:50<dpkg>i heard non-free is a component which contains software that does not comply with the <DFSG>. To add non-free packages to your packages index, ask me about <non-free sources>. To see which non-free packages are installed on your system, ask me about <vrms>. For the non-free tracking system, see
13:50<kop>!non-free sources
13:50<dpkg>i guess non-free sources is edit /etc/apt/sources.list, ensure that the two main Debian mirror lines end with "main contrib non-free" rather than just "main", then aptitude update. But bear in mind that you'll be installing <non-free> software. These may have onerous terms; check the licenses.
13:50-!-Slurb [] has joined #debian
13:50<kop>mataks : Does that help?
13:50<Greyshade>Alsa, getting 5.1 running, anyone using an x-fi titanium and willing to help?
13:50<Greyshade>or is this going to be a lost cause?
13:51<kop>mataks : The worst mistake you can make as a new linux user is to install software from _anywhere_ but your distro's repostories, Debian in this case.
13:51<sarc_3> ha, good advice
13:51<Gothian>I second that
13:51<mataks>now how to dl it using apt?
13:52<Greyshade>if you want the 185's from apt, you'll need to point to sid (Squeeze/lenny use 17x)
13:52<kop>mataks : You followed the instructions about regarding your sources.list file?
13:52<mataks>kop: assuming i did.. what's next?
13:52<adb>mataks: paste sources.list
13:53<kop>mataks : You type "aptitude update". Then "aptitude install foo" where foo is the package you want installed. You can do "aptitude search blahblah" to search for the package you want.
13:53<Gothian>" assuming i did"
13:53<kop>mataks : Or use synaptic or whatever else you usually do to install debian software.
13:54<kop>mataks : Of course there's still the question of why you want such stuff? What's wrong with your setup that you're trying to solve?
13:55<mataks>can you paste the source list for the driver

13:55<mataks>kop: i just have a fresh install i don't have a graphic driver yet. im just using vesa .. im stuck in too low resolution
13:55<kop>mataks : As above -- edit /etc/apt/sources.list, ensure that the
13:55<kop> two main Debian mirror lines end with "main contrib non-free" rather
13:55<kop> than just "main"
13:55<Greyshade>you can do what Kop said from synaptic under the "repositories" option
13:56<kop>mataks : Ah. Is X installed?
13:56<kop>mataks : What card do you have?
13:57<mataks>nvidia 7300gt
13:57<mataks>i tot it was 8700 then i checked again.. now confirmed it's 7300GT
13:57<kop>mataks : There's probably a free driver that will do the job, all you need to do is find which driver supports your card. (I have had trouble on upgrade having the right driver and had to tell apt to install the right one.)
13:57<Greyshade>... it gets older every time you look at it?

15:53<patrikf>Hans_Henrik: these are not individual packages, but "tasks". if you're running a web server, then the packages brought in by "Web Server" might come in handy. but in principle, you don't need to select a single task.
15:53<stew>Hans_Henrik: if you have an existing debian install you can see what is in standard with "aptitude search \~pstandard \~prequired \~pimportant"

15:57-!-Hideo [] has joined #debian

18:16<dpkg>To reinstall <GRUB> simply boot to your Debian install disk, live CD or whatever else you have, switch to the other console (Alt-F2), then mount your root filesystem (mount -t ext2 /dev/whatever /target ; mount --bind /dev /target/dev), then chroot into it (chroot /target) then run "mount /proc ; update-grub && grub-install /dev/hda". Also ask me about <rescue mode> and <dual boot guide>.
18:16-!-AngelV [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
18:16<bremner>hmm, wrong direction. I think there is a tool actually called fixmbr
18:17<dpkg>rumour has it, mbr is the Master Boot Record, the first bit of code loaded from the hard drive when a PC boots. to install a clean MBR (e.g. to get rid of lilo if it is in the mbr) from DOS one can run "fdisk /mbr"; from linux "install-mbr /dev/hda", or ask me about <fixmbr>, or see See for guidelines on copying the MBR
18:18<Gothian>Oh... now that I see this about grub... How do I change to grub 2?
18:18<boon12345>apt-get could find fixmbr :( - this is windows tools

18:19<boon12345>hm i try got way with grub ;) . thx all
18:21<sdhoeppner>dr|z3d: I've never manually installed Debian keyring. Could that be part of my problem? In addition to the 404s, I get GPG key error running 'apt-get update'

The problem (I think) is that any time I use a subshell to read input "foo=$(ls | sed -e 's/[[:space:]]/\ /g')", $foo is filled with ALL files in the directory. So, there has to be a way to pass an 'end of file name' to the shell to start the "do" and then the test. I thihk "while" may do it, but I have to figure

19:28<chealer>adb: yes

19:29<chealer>sdhoeppner: no, that's just to make sure that you're running an up-to-date etch. you real dist-upgrade will come later
19:29<adb>ok , thanks chealer & themill ;)
19:29<themill>adb: it also installs the new dpkg straight away which means that things like "triggers" that are new in lenny are available
19:30<adb>cool , thanks
19:30<sdhoeppner>chealer: according to dpkg I update sources.list from etch to lenny, then installed the new aptitude, then do apt dist-upgrade. Does that not cover the process?
19:31<chealer>sdhoeppner: it does. I'm just making sure you're ready for that
19:32<sdhoeppner>but i still need to do apt dist-upgrade once with my sources pointing to etch, to make sure I'm fully up to date before the dist-upgrade to lenny, correct?

19:37<adb>and aptitude safe-upgrade and full-upgrade are preferred to apt-get dist-upgrade , i thought
19:37<sdhoeppner>is it the same command for lenny? if so, the docs in dpkg here are wrong...
19:37<themill>dpkg, etch->lenny
19:37<dpkg>Read the release notes, ask me about <lenny release notes>. Ensure your Etch installation is up to date (aptitude update; aptitude dist-upgrade).

19:40<sdhoeppner>is it because I abbreviated apt? "apt dist-upgrade" doesn't work on my system. Look at what dpkg says above: "aptitude dist-upgrade" Does that work on Lenny? Or does is need "aptitude-get dist-upgrade"?
19:40<chealer>sdhoeppner: yes. yes. no
19:41<themill>sdhoeppner: "apt dist-upgrade" and "aptitude-get dist-upgrade" have never been commands to use.

19:45<themill>sdhoeppner: aptitude replaces apt-get is syntactically identical to apt-get for handling binary packages but has a better dependency resolver. You never used "apt-get get" so you wouldn't use "aptitude get".
19:45<chealer>sdhoeppner: no. aptitude is more or less a replacement for apt-get. APT and its front-ends is quite a mess.

20:54<sdhoeppner>mantra: one more thing. If you assign all the addresses manually on all your LAN equipment (PCs, print servers, etc), you can then ignore completely the DHCP settings on the router. No device will ever ask for a lease. See?
20:55<sdhoeppner>chealer: and what about that kernel-header warning? that's ominous..
20:56<mantra>sdhoeppner: yeah but i dont want to do that lol
20:56<mantra>sdhoeppner: it lets me exclude ranges for dhcp but i cant find where to assign static ips
20:56<sdhoeppner>mantra: lemme guess.... wireless laptop and a wired server or two?
20:57<chealer>sdhoeppner: apt-cache rdepends libc6-dev will show you (plus some other packages). it's just a development library

21:00<mischief>um, i suppose
21:00<gnufan>mischief: anything change that you know off - like mYSql upgrades?
21:00<guille>hola, como estan? someone knows of such a program to decode .*act to mp3
21:00<sdhoeppner>mischief: He could sure do that. I don't know what router he has.
21:01<mischief>gnufan, i literally just installed it
21:01<sdhoeppner>mischief: if it supports that's he's good to go. However, if he's doing NFS, I'd recommend staying away from a sticky static assigned by a consumer broadband piece of gear.
21:01<mischief>gnufan, i set the password via dpkg-reconfigure mysql-server-5.0
21:02<mischief>and i used the exact same password when logging in via mysql
21:02<mischief>sdhoeppner, it's fairly easy to do with dnsmasq :)

21:06<gnufan>mischief: I assume that the using password changed at least.

21:15<mantra>sdhoeppner: or else my ip will change due to dhcp
21:15<sdhoeppner>mantra: good. Then why even bother with the router config and MAC addresses? If you use static IPs on your hosts, and host files, the router DHCP server is now on an island.
21:15<mischief>gnufan, i did, but i think i forgot it. i reset it anyways, via dpkg-reconfigure
21:16<mantra>sdhoeppner: how do i do that?
21:16<mantra>sdhoeppner: just connect the host name to the ip on the host, and my linksys router will play ball?

21:21<sdhoeppner>I don't use a GUI so I can't tell you how to change the IP in desktop Debian. You can figure it out with the docs in those links. Those docs should also cover changing the IP on your server, assuming it's not running a GUI.

23:10<lone_wolf>Basically, no graphics
23:11<lone_wolf>Tried 'xrandr -s <resolution> but I just get "Can't open display"
23:11<Jason1>aha I know you meant
23:11<Jason1>I have that problem but it was other kind of distro
23:12<Jason1>input out of range
23:12<Jason1>I have the same problem
23:12<lone_wolf>Is there an easy fix, or do I have to scrap Debian again?

23:13<mantra>how do i set up a static ip with wireless?
23:14<Jason1>mine was a laptop
23:14<mantra>will eth0 be treated the same as wlan0?
23:14<sney>yep mantra, you can do ifconfig the same way with a wireless interface
23:15<mantra>how would i do that
23:15<mantra>i dont know how to set a static ip in the first place
23:15<Jason1>I can help you.
23:15<Jason1>ok open terminal
23:15<Jason1>type ifconfig and tell me what you see?
23:16-!-tuxwarrior [~ulises@] has joined #debian
23:16<Jason1>if it says permission error
23:16<Jason1>then log in as root liek this sudo ifconfig
23:16<mantra>only wlan0 has inet addr
23:16<Jason1>what else?
23:16<lone_wolf>I'm gonna try another monitor
23:16-!-lone_wolf [] has quit [Quit: meh]
23:17<mantra>i see eth0, eth0:avahi, lo, wlan0, wmaster0-00
23:17<Jason1>ok let me try remembering.
23:17-!-jcwu [] has joined #debian
23:17<Jason1>static ip address right?
23:18<Jason1>I think I understand, you want ot manually configure the static ip address configuration right?
23:18<mantra>the network already has dhcp but i need a few static ips
23:18<mantra>for my server
23:18<Jason1>I can help you
23:18<Jason1>ok open Network in the menu
23:18<kmonk>ceni's a good 1

23:19<Jason1>you sure?

23:20-!-SHINSAKU [] has joined #debian
23:20<mantra>wlan0 has the ip
23:20<mantra>lo is localhost
23:20<kmonk>hal auto configures fstab doesnt it
23:20<kmonk>trying to do without it
23:20<Jason1>lo is loopback
23:20<mantra>whats that
23:21<Jason1>long story.
23:21<Jason1>I knowl inux so long.
23:21<mantra>networking hurts my brain
23:21<Jason1>I have linux for idiots book lol
23:21<kmonk>hey it's not a bad book
23:21<Jason1>same here until I read the linux book and I understand
23:22<Jason1>I should become an network admin lol
23:22<mantra>so is setting a staatic ip really hard or something?
23:22<mataks>help pls.. how to shutdown ?
23:22<kmonk>save's using man to read the manual of every single package to get it working
23:22-!-xlotlu [~john@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:22<mantra>i thought i would have to add 1 line into the /etc/hosts
23:22<mantra>thats what i was told
23:22<Jason1>mataks, go to terminal and type shutdown
23:23<mantra>shutdown needs root
23:23<mataks>how bout restart?
23:23<Jason1>I think
23:23-!-victorwpbastos [] has joined #debian
23:23<Jason1>you can do that
23:23<kmonk>shutdown -h now or shutdown -h 20 to shutdown in 20 minutes
23:23<mantra>#reboot i think
23:23<adb>mataks: shutdown -r now
23:23-!-erKURITA [] has joined #debian
23:23<mataks>k thnx
23:23<mantra>ok so does anyone know how to set a static ip?
23:24-!-Amateratsu [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
23:24<kmonk>i found shutdown -h <minutes> real handy when you're download torrents and want pc to shutdown in the morning
23:24<sney>isn't it just ifconfig interface address
23:24<sney>like, ifconfig eth0
23:25-!-mataks [~mataks@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
23:25<mantra>would it be wlan0 for wireless?
23:25<adb>mantra: stay whit dhcp , until you learn same network base
23:25<mantra>i do have network base
23:25<mantra>and I NEED this for my nfs share
23:25<adb>google it
23:25<sney>dhcp is generally better unless you *need* static ips
23:25<kmonk>yep, wlan0 is typically wireless
23:26<sney>dhcp can assign the same ip to a specific mac address every time if you tell it to
23:26<mantra>ok because everything i have seen said eth0
23:26<mantra>my router doesnt have that option
23:26<kmonk>do you have the firmware for your wireless adaptor?
23:26<mantra>installed? yes
23:26<adb>sney: unless you KNOW it :)
23:26<mantra>my wireless is working, just on dhcp
23:26<kmonk>ifconfig -a should show everything, even offline interfaces
23:27<mantra>i have done that
23:27<mantra>wlan0 is my wireless
23:27<sney>kmonk is a little behind, maybe he's lagging ;)
23:27<mantra>wlan0 has the ip assigned
23:27<kmonk>:p thanks
23:27<kmonk>im a little slo prehaps
23:28<mantra>so to give it a static ip i could go 'ifconfig wlan0 <ip>'?
23:28<mantra>ok thanks
23:28<sney>just make sure the netmask matches, and check your routing table, and it should work just fine

23:33<mantra>so what happened>
23:33<sney>mantra: go learn
23:34<mantra>i have been reading documentation for about 3 hours.

23:34<mantra>why is something so simple so complicated?
23:34<sney>not really. IPV4 addressing/routing standards.
23:34<mantra>i dont understand netmasks
23:34<sney>it's generally sometihng you learn by experience
23:35<mantra>ok im not reading this howto
23:35<mantra>this is rediculoous
23:35<kmonk>a netmask masks your net from ranges with a 255 specification
23:35<mantra>i just wanna know how to set a static ip so my hosts file can work
23:35<kmonk>i use ceni, it's not the 'pure' method of setting it up, you wont learn anything, but it will work
23:36<sney>can't wicd set static ips even?
23:36<mantra>shit i think it can
23:36<sney>yes it can, it's right there in the preferences
23:36<kmonk>wicd is probably the best gui interface for basic networking
23:36<sney>see this is what happens when your first response is to go ask for help rather than thinking "hmm what does this button do"
23:36<mantra>wicd kicks network managers ass
23:37<mantra>sorry lol ive been working out this NFS issue for like a wee
23:37<mantra>ok for gateway do i put my routers ip?
23:38<adb>mantra: it will take 1-2 years ..
