00:47<mantra>idk if non-free packages are on the DVD
00:47<ProfOak>Well, I'll check anyways
00:48<mantra>if its not then you can plug your computer into ethernet and download the package over the internet
00:48<ProfOak>I could always transfer via USB drive, since I'm obviously using the internet right now
00:48<mantra>yeah you can download the package manually

"modprobe iwl3945" or "modprobe iwl4965" depending on your device's chipset. See (particularly if switching from ipw3945). See also <iwlagn> <wmaster0> <wireless tree> <iwlwifi etch>. #ipw2100 on

00:57<Hideo>ProfOak: do you have a wired connection on that laptop?

01:15-!-tjol [] has joined #debian
01:16<ProfOak>Ok, update, my account is not in the sudoers file... Ok this is making less and less sense as it goes along
01:18<nono>it's not ubuntu
01:19<ProfOak>There's only one account on this machine, why is it not in the sudoers file?
01:19-!-shashi [~shashi@] has joined #debian
01:19<jm_>because it has no place there by default
01:19<ProfOak>How do I add myself to it?
01:19-!-Slurb [] has joined #debian
01:20<mantra>ProfOak: sudo isnt used by nearly everyone so it isnt included by default
01:20-!-tjol_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:20<mantra>its really a ubuntu thing
01:20-!-Lethalman [] has joined #debian
01:21<stew>no, it isn't a ubuntu thing
01:21<mantra>oh ok
01:21<mantra>i use it
01:21<Slurb>sudo is included
01:21<mantra>i dont think it used to
01:21<mantra>i remember installing it
01:21-!-alephnull [~alok@] has joined #debian
01:21<mantra>or maybe not idk
01:21<Slurb>i chose to disable root so sudo was included in my install
01:21<stew>and no sudo isn't included by default, but it is certainly available. there are options in the installer to install 'rootless' which wiould include sudo and no root password set
01:21<ProfOak>I thought using sudo was like a common thing to do while operating from the terminal
01:22<mantra>a lot of people use su instead
01:22<stew>ProfOak: it is
01:23<jm_>it isn't really
01:23<ProfOak>I've always found myself using sudo at least once per startup of my computer
01:23<ProfOak>And I suck at linux
01:24-!-hanthana [~hanthana@] has joined #debian
01:24<mantra>it depends on how often you use the terminal for non administrative things and how often you make changes to your computer
01:24<mantra>but for most people it is common to use su or sudo
01:25<ProfOak>I wasn't even aware of su at all
01:25-!-Worf_ [] has joined #debian
01:25<mantra>yeah i think ubuntu discourages su
01:25-!-dan [] has joined #debian
01:25<sney^>they do yes
01:25<mantra>still cant figure out why
01:26<dan>dang alot of users here o.O
01:26<sney^>probably to avoid recent windows converts doing everything as root
01:26<dan>i am in need of some answers
01:26-!-Jason1 [] has joined #debian
01:26<sney^>"well on my windows machine I was administrator" syndrome
01:27-!-mode/#debian [+l 384] by debhelper
01:27-!-Hideo [] has joined #debian
01:27<ProfOak>wb Hideo
01:27<Jason1>I need a GUI unrar program
01:27<dan>can anyone help me run a .bat file on ubuntu?
01:27<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. Even if the channel happens to be less helpful, support for distributions other than Debian is offtopic on #debian. See also <based on debian>.
01:27<Hideo>ProfOak: did it work?
01:27<mantra>Jason1: xarchiver works
01:28-!-madrescher [] has joined #debian
01:28<ProfOak>Hideo: I can't use sudo, so no
01:28<Jason1>will it extract rar parts?
01:28<mantra>haha dpkg doesnt like ubuntu either
01:28<dan>sney can you help me out?
01:28<Hideo>ProfOak: why not?
01:28<ProfOak>Hideo: I'm not in the sudoers file
01:28<sney^>dan, speaking generally, if you have a .bat file you have the wrong file.
01:28<stew>dan: please go to #ubuntu on for help with ubuntu
01:28<Hideo>ProfOak: then use su
01:29<dan>well can i get it running?
01:29<dan>stew there is no one on the ubuntu channel :(
01:29-!-Piet [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:29<ProfOak>Unknown ID: dpkg... What?!
01:30-!-fox [~k@] has joined #debian
01:30<sney^>dan, .bat files are for windows.
01:30<stew>dan: there are over 1000 people in it. you are not on yet
01:30<Jason1>mantra, it don't extract the parts.
01:30<fox>u k s arabic ?
01:30<jm_>Jason1: so use rar command in a terminal
01:30<dan>so there is no possible way for me to run it?
01:30<mantra>Jason1: oh then i dont know of any except the CLI
01:30-!-Piet [] has joined #debian
01:31<ProfOak>dan: What does it do, exactly?
01:31<mantra>how often are you unraring parts that you need a GUI for it?
01:31<fox>ok bye
01:31<Jason1>yeah it is easy than commandline
01:31<dan>well it's supposed to run a client, a runescape clone, moparscape, a private server
01:32<dan>thinking i can run moparscape on linux i can run this private server
01:32-!-fox [~k@] has quit []
01:32<dan>but i can't run it :(
01:32<ProfOak>dan: That's certainly an odd file extension for a server. Have you tried WINE at all?
01:33<dan>no i haven't
01:33<dan>i'll give it try
01:33<Jason1>then try?
01:33<mantra>why are you using ubuntu for a server?
01:33<mantra>theres basically no point
01:33-!-kittu [~cristian@] has joined #debian
01:33<sney^>I think there is an ubuntu server distribution
01:34<ProfOak>There is a server distro
01:34<jm_>Jason1: rar x file.rar is hard?
01:34<mantra>why? its based off debian, whats there to change to make it a better server?
01:34<sney^>dan, the worst that can happen is failure if you try this, but give this a shot: sh file.bat
01:34-!-Hideo [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:35<sney^>mantra: because, as a fork of debian, ubuntu isn't bound by things debian has "already done" when they decide what to do next
01:35<ProfOak>mantra: it's easier, I guess.
01:35<sney^>also, some people are more comfortable with point and click.
01:35<sney^>and brown things.
01:35-!-Hideo [] has joined #debian
01:35<mantra>oh god, a GUI server
01:35<dan>ty sney i give that try too
01:35<ProfOak>Haha, that seems to be a running gag. Brown...
01:35<sney^>gui server! just like windows!
01:35<ProfOak>Hideo: What's going on with your internet?
01:36<dan>sorta of a nooby question.... where can i check my hard drive space?
01:36<dan>i think wine is too big for this computer xD
01:36<sney^>I must say that having a bunch of xterms on the same screen at once without having to alt-fkey between them is pretty useful, but I'm not sure it really justifies running X on a server
01:36<sney^>dan: df -h
01:36<Hideo>ProfOak: my brother is fidgeting with the freaking router
01:36<dan>ty :)
01:36<ProfOak>Hideo: oh, haha
01:36<mantra>sney^: and theres always screen
01:37-!-cahoot [~radix@] has joined #debian
01:37<sney^>yes, I said without switching between them
01:37<mantra>oh yeah
01:37<sney^>like, being able to see them at the same time
01:37<mantra>oh i thought screen did that
01:37<mantra>never used it so idk
01:37<jm_>you can have split windows in screen
01:37<Jason1>oh man winrar works
01:37<sney^>well, I never figured out how to do that. >_> anyway
01:37<mantra>oh yeah huh
01:38<ProfOak>Does everyone dislike ubuntu, or something?
01:38<Jason1>I had ot use wine and install winrar.exe and itvworks
01:38<mantra>nah i like it for desktop
01:38<jm_>that was pretty much the reason I started using X - you can see multiple terminals at the same time
01:39<sney^>ProfOak: it's tiring for ubuntu users to keep coming in here, clueless, demanding support... it's a bug in ubuntu, their xchat install comes here when you start it
01:39<ProfOak>Wait, you guys don't use desktops?
01:39<dan>btw this will be my first time using wine
01:39<Jason1>I use the desktop
01:39<ProfOak>sney^: hahahahahaha
01:39<sney^>haha, I use a desktop *now*, but there was I time when I didn't
01:39<ProfOak>That's true, I wonder why it defaults to Debian...
01:40<sney^>because they secretly hate us and want us to be stressed
01:40<sney^>dan: there are specific support channels for the things you want to do. go, young man, find them
01:40<ProfOak>Or maybe because they have 1000+ noobs complaining all the time
01:40<sney^>yeah they have to get rid of some of them I guess haha
01:41<ProfOak>Well, I've given up on my problem for today
01:41<cahoot>whatever the reason - it's OT
01:41-!-kittu [~cristian@] has left #debian [Saliendo]
01:41<sney^>"let's make an OS for children and old people, then offer free online community support!" "capital idea! what could go wrong?"
01:41<sney^>ok, I'm done
01:41<ProfOak>I'll walk around tomorrow, when people are awake
01:41<Jason1>how do I install vlc?
01:41<dan>ty sney :) i'll do my best
01:41<ProfOak>Well sney^: It was my first Linux, so I can't really hate it
01:42<sney^>Jason1: aptitude install vlc ?
01:42<sney^>ProfOak: what was your problem again?
01:42<Jason1>let me try
01:42*sney^ too lazy to scroll up
01:42<ProfOak>I've got a stack of about 15 liveCDs/DVDs of linux
01:42<ProfOak>Oh, I can't get wifi
01:42<ProfOak>I'll just use a wired connection to download the package tomorrow
01:42<mantra>ProfOak: you cant get to an ethernet cable?
01:42<sney^>wifi problems!
01:42<Jason1>oh thanks
01:43-!-dstar4138 [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
01:43<ProfOak>Everyone is sleeping in my house, and my router is on the other side of my house
01:43<mantra>lol ok
01:43-!-Jason1 [] has left #debian []
01:43<sney^>Jason1: aptitude search is your *friend.*
01:43<sney^>and of course he quits
01:43<ProfOak>I think that's the first thing you need to learn on linux
01:43<dan>how can i use wine on a program?
01:43<mantra>wine program.exe
01:43<sney^>I thought you were going to find the right support channels dan
01:44<stew>dan: ask #ubuntu on
01:44<ProfOak>Right click the program, and go to "Open With"
01:44-!-gregory [~gregory@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]

01:47<sney^>I sweah! >_>
01:48*ProfOak is pretty confused
01:49<ProfOak>Although, it's probably better that way
01:49<sney^>ProfOak: you can use /ctcp username version to see what irc client/OS people are running.
01:49<Jason1>my VLC player can't play video
01:49<ProfOak>Yeah, I did it on you
01:49<ProfOak>But I dunno what it means
01:49<sney^>you probably did it on my other self, the eee in the other room
01:49<sney^>see my hat? ^
01:50<ProfOak>That makes MUCH more sense

01:52<ProfOak>Jason1: Try Totem or mplayer
01:52<mantra>Jason1: you can always use SMplayer
01:52<mantra>SMplayer is really polished
01:52<Jason1>but I need to put with a .srt file.
01:53<Jason1>hairspray.avi with. srt
01:53<Jason1>srt is subtitle file
01:53<ProfOak>Oo, Smplayer sounds dirty, but looks pretty good

01:55<ProfOak>dpkh -i filename?
01:55<sney^>aptitude is newer, slower, and has more features. it is also more automated with things like autoremoving packages that were pulled as a dependency but are no longer needed
01:55<mantra>no, i need to make dpkg yell at you
01:55<ProfOak>oh, haha
01:55<ProfOak>!Yell mantra LOL
01:56<ProfOak>Ok, guess not
01:56<ProfOak>Is that Phenny?
01:56<adb>dpkg: tell ProfOak -about why aptitude
01:56<sney^>for day to day usage of installing and updating things, there is nothing really different between apt-get and aptitude, other than sometimes aptitude takes (significantly) longer to search
01:56<adb>dpkg: tell ProfOak -about selftell
01:57<sney^>aptitude also has a standalone curses gui thing similar to dselect, and there's some gtk thing too but I forget what it was called because I removed it right away.

02:48<bpun>k1lumin4t1, no
02:48<bpun>k1lumin4t1, we already know
02:49<adb>k1lumin4t1: i guess you can reinstall in lvm w/ keeping old home/ , never tried myself thought
02:49<k1lumin4t1>I have this debian installation since some months ago which I did using LVM in the d-i. Inside the LVM tree I placed /home and /root, and outside of it /boot and swap. The thing is I need to reinstall my system but I don't want to touch the LVM logical volume for /home, just reinstall the system (i.e. /root )
02:49<k1lumin4t1>adb, how did you knew?
02:49<adb>i read it in #d-es
02:50<bpun>k1lumin4t1, he also has a spycam in your room
02:50<bpun>k1lumin4t1, but i won't ever go there!
02:50<tzafrir_laptop>but an install will always wipe out / , right?
02:50<k1lumin4t1>of course
02:50<k1lumin4t1>that's the core of it
02:50<tzafrir_laptop>if you have the LVM partition, why not try to recover?
02:51<k1lumin4t1>I just want to avoid wiping home which is inside the LVM as root is

02:51<k1lumin4t1>tzafrir_laptop, the thing is that I'm having this HAL issue with my CD/DVD drive which doesn't allow it to be recognized and mounted automatically
02:51<k1lumin4t1>tzafrir_laptop, it's not a rescue
02:51<paul_>I want to share a virtual winXP image between two users, where is it best to put it? /usr/share ?
02:52<k1lumin4t1>tzafrir_laptop, I want to reinstall
02:52<paul_>.. or maybe /var/?
02:53<tzafrir_laptop>paul_, /usr/share is not the place for such stuff
02:53<adb>paul_: in /etc/export ..

02:54<adb>or /opt ..
02:55<paul_>oh, I can put it in home?
02:55<paul_>maybe create another user?
02:55<paul_>thanks a bunch

03:13<deniz>bpun, theyre not even listed with sysctl -a but they are with -p, anyways would you happen to know if my previous vm.vfs_cache_pressure=1 instead of =50 (which it is now) was the reason for slowing my system to a crawl when copying a 12gb file from a certain directory to another on the same hdd?
03:14<bpun>deniz, if you're not sure then just comment it out..
03:14<bpun>deniz, a system reboot will use the kernel's default..
03:14<deniz>bpun, i think my problem is solved now with the =50 but i just wanted confirmation to see if it's in my head

06:58<jm_>themill: ok thanks, ploticus has good support for this

07:02<themill>jm_: yeah. openoffice chart is truly appalling for that. istr some of the big expensive plotting packages like origin and sigmaplot being pretty poor at that too. Dates are an irregular thing so partioning the axis needs to be done in interesting and funky ways

08:13<ranix>hell when it came out, the most beefing card on the market by FAR was the Voodoo Banshee, and it smoked everything else except the millitary training systems by Matrox

08:24<jm_>indeed, gtx275 is way below 200eur even here
08:24<ranix>200 euros is a shitpile of money
08:24<ranix>for a video card

08:27<ranix>there's just a thriving secondary market in ripping off people who don't know any better
08:27<ranix>I still got bit by it the only time I spent a ton of cash for a card
08:28<ranix>so I'm bitter
08:28<jm_>dunno, I usually pay about 600-700EUR for a gaming box every now and then, if you only need something for linux 300 gets you an awesome system
08:28<vvas>sounds like a reasonable conclusion to me :)
08:29<ranix>that's a bit much for me
08:29<ranix>I tend to come across parts from the previous generation that I can make into a decent box without trying too hard
08:29<vvas>well, keep in mind that US and EU prices aren't directly comparable
08:29<ranix>I don't understand why that is

09:28<ranix>jaakko: FYI, you don't need to distribute the source on your installation media or with your product
09:29<ranix>jaakko: as long as you have procedure in-place to furnish the source upon request, you're clear
09:29<ranix>jaakko: i.e., it can be downloadable from your website, or you can send a development kit CD to a customer/vendor upon phone or written request
09:29<ranix>so it you have space requirements to satisfy, this might be better for you
09:30<ranix>also, you're not required to give the source to anyone to whom you have not distributed the product
09:31<jaakko>ranix: perhaps yes, but then I have to keep all different versions 3 years.. one change in .config, and one more to store 236 MB. And I should also know, which version is needed when someone asks.
09:31<jaakko>ranix: ups, thats not true what I said.. .config does not change kernel source

09:32<ranix>especially if you can pull something like .config from the device to use that

11:10<BlargMaN>Just out of curiousity, what is the major difference between *-486 and *-686?? does it matter which one I use??
11:11<raph_ael>BlargMaN: a question of cpu, if you have a modern one, juste use 686
11:11<Slurb>686 has code for pentium class processors 486 is for a 486
11:11<BlargMaN>that's what I thought, and that's how I have always treated those, I just wanted a second opinion... ;-)
11:11<Slurb>if the comp is from the 80's use 486 newer 686
11:12<petern>pentium 2 +
11:12<petern>so... after '97
11:12<Slurb>unless you have a 64 bit processor
11:13<Slurb>then use ia64 or amd64
11:13<raph_ael>petemc: seems like things have changed from etch to lenny, i don't remember having such problems with xen before, and btw thanks for helping
11:13<petemc>Slurb: ia64 is itanium
11:13<petern>anything from the 80s... use something old
11:13<Slurb>i know
11:13<petemc>so dont advise people to use it

17:05<aliceinwire> To actually adopt the package, upload it with your name in its Maintainer: field, and put something like * New maintainer (Closes: #bugnumber) in the changelog of the package in order to automatically close this bug once the package has been installed; where bugnumber has to be replaced with the corresponding bugreport number. Furthermore, before you actually upload a new package with you as the maintain
17:05<aliceinwire> er, you should check if there is a new upstream release and you should try to fix the outstanding bugs.
17:05<aliceinwire>how i can do it ?

20:41<Zathras_>Anthony|TheTechZone, there is no such thing as "errors". If you do not specify we have no idea what the problem might be and you will have no solution: no info = no solution
20:41<ranix>!xorg config
20:41<dpkg>From lenny onwards, xorg mostly configures itself. Things like resolution are configured by your desktop environment or <xrandr>. As a result, the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file is usually no longer needed and is often blank but you can feed xorg settings using it still. Use "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" to set your keyboard layout and use "X -configure" as a template for your handwritten xorg.conf.

22:22<Jason1>oh well.
22:22<bpun>ex0a, what you can do is apt-get source phpmyadmin and study what's under any sample conf file u may find
22:22<ex0a>that fixed it abrotman
22:22<ex0a>i didn't delete the directories though
22:22<abrotman>sure .. if you say so
22:22<ex0a>it did it automatically on apt-get upgrade
22:22<ex0a>it did it on two servers

23:37<ru-conc>I'm really sorry - I need help..... I've been installing debian on the laptops for some company directors. open office is inadequate for them, so I've had to install office 2007 in wine for them. On the previous install (of my custom debian version) everything was fine, now whenever I save .doc files it appears to save them ok, but after reboot they won't load. Hexedit before reboot shows they are full of zeroes, oddly though
23:37<ru-conc>abiword and open office will open them before reboot. I've messed with mime.type, but the original hasn't fixed it...Reinstalled wine and office many times and in new user account (suggesting problem is in root system, not user)I'm baffled - any ideas? This is a major headache for me...

23:38<sney`>ru-conc: maybe it's not syncing the writes before a reboot?

23:39<ru-conc>how can I check? (just do a sync command before reboot and see?)

23:49<ru-conc>ok, no that didn't work. How can OO and abi read it pre-reboot if its garbage at the time of save (according to hexedit) I don't get it....
23:51-!-Guest849 [] has quit []
23:51<sney`>maybe there's something in the winehq appdb about this
23:52<sney`>seems like it's probably something about how Office saves files

23:54<ru-conc>yeah already checked winehq - the only thing I found was on the crossover site about the template being screwed up - but I've tried differant users and versions of office 2007, no joy. Its so odd - it works fine in previous install, I've screwed something up.

23:56<ru-conc>I messed with mime.types, removed a few services (samhain, etc) used winepath to open docs automatically into word. I don't why I'm bothering, I want them on linux so I don't have to spend all my time removing their viri. Now I've put on office and flash for them. Whats the point? They might as well just have windows, LOL
23:57<ru-conc>is there a wine irc?
