00:21<laber>Help!!!!I just delete my directory like this #rm -rf /usr/local ,Is there any way I can recover it.It`s a misoperation...
00:22<bpun>laber, no!
00:22-!-godsmonster [] has joined #debian
00:23<dpkg>rumour has it, rm is used to delete a file (syntax: rm foo), or the Grim File Reaper, or really just a wrapper 'round unlink(2). To prevent accidental deletions, ask me about <safe-rm>. --preserve-root is a default option since GNU coreutils 6.4. Release Manager, the team of people responsible for managing a Debian release. RealMedia (icky proprietary audio/video codecs).
00:23<dpkg>i heard safe-rm is a configurable rm wrapper, intended to prevent the accidental deletion of important files and directories. Packaged for Lenny.

00:25<laber>bpun, So it`s gone !!Never come back...
00:25<deniz_>why doesn't sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup work in debian but it supposedly does in ubuntu? do i need a specific package to be able to enter that command?
00:25-!-nickzxcv [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
00:26<laber>bpun the file system is ext3
00:27<ru-conc>you'd need to setup sudo - use su instead, and add vboxdrv to boot up modules to load automatically(/etc/modules ?)
00:27<ru-conc>not 'and add' - 'or add'
00:27<laber>Is there any recycle stragedy on debian,,like windows
00:27-!-jidm [~chatzilla@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:28<deniz_>ru-conc, i have sudo setup and i didnt understand what you said about vboxdrv, did you mean the modprobe command or adding my user to the group, because i already did those
00:28<deniz_>set up*
00:28<int0r>I wanna upgrade to python 2.6 from 2.5
00:28<int0r>I can't find 2.6 in aptitude
00:28<int0r>source problem?
00:28<bpun>deniz_, dpkg -L virtualbox |less << note any doc directories?
00:28<ru-conc>no - there is a file called modules, add vboxdrv to it and it will load on boot.
00:29<ru-conc>one sec
00:29<bpun>ru-conc, ^^
00:29<ru-conc>nano /etc/modules add vboxdrv
00:29-!-deniz_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:30<bpun>ru-conc, does virtualbox in debian come with a precompiled modules?
00:30-!-deniz_ [] has joined #debian
00:30-!-deniz_ [] has quit []
00:30<bpun>laber, with the gnome or kde desktop
00:30-!-deniz_ [] has joined #debian
00:30<ru-conc>yeah - add vboxdrv to that file and it will work fine, you don't need anything else
00:30<bpun>laber, if you're a man you don't whine about using -rf with rm
00:30<bpun>laber, otherwise rtfm!
00:31<bpun>laber, you were dumb enough to use -rf and now complain about it
00:32<deniz_>ru-conc, i did and just restarted gnome and still an error
00:32<laber>bpun Anyway ,,It`s a comfortable way to delete data...
00:32<bpun>laber, use the mouse kid
00:32<bpun>laber, you're not a man
00:33<ru-conc>deniz - is it still asking you to load vboxdrv?
00:33<ru-conc>or another error?
00:33<deniz_>its a lil stupid to argue bout rm -rf, laber next time just do ls and be careful
00:33<mantra>hey vimtutor wont work
00:34<deniz_>ru-conc, same error and still cannot do: /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
00:34<bpun>deniz, we're not arguing. maybe you should stick with the mouse too
00:34<mantra>it gives me a blank vim screen with /tmp/tutorwGYKwz at the bottom
00:34<laber>bpun ,there might ways to recover..Impossible is nothing...
00:34<bpun>laber, just stick with the mouse kid, you'll never be able to master the rm command.. never
00:35<ru-conc>den - you need to do su then modprobe -i vboxdrv to load manually. /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup ? never had to do that
00:35<ru-conc>are you using the debian install or a from elsewhere
00:36<ru-conc>i.e. off of synaptic etc
00:36<deniz_>bpun, i cant really help but this might help you get started
00:36<deniz_>oops laber*
00:36<ru-conc>the /etc/modules is correct btw
00:36<deniz_>ru-conc, im using squeeze
00:37<deniz_>wait ill attempt that
00:37-!-cockroach [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
00:38<deniz_>ru-conc, for future reference, do i HAVE to add vboxdrv to /etc/modules
00:38<ru-conc>to load at boot and not be asked to do it manuall, yes. otherwise, just do it before you load each time
00:39<deniz_>how do you just "do it" like temporarily (im assumign thats what you're saying)
00:40<deniz_>i need to load ubuntu 32 and 64 bit in order to respond to this squeeze bug report i made and later i need to use xp on my lenny laptop for school
00:41<ru-conc>open terminal type su, enter root password, type modprobe -i vboxdrv then open virtual box. Only works until you reboot
00:41<deniz_>o i only restarted x
00:41<deniz_>k ill be bak

00:45<gsimmons>dpkg: tell deniz_ -about vbox-install squeeze
00:45<deniz_>and then reboot again?

01:18<gsimmons>deniz_: I asked you to check it. You will need to remove the existing (non-matching) vboxdrv module from your kernel (modprobe -r vboxdrv), prior to loading the updated vboxdrv and vboxnetflt modules.

01:27<ru-conc>hope it works ok ;)
01:32<deniz_>ru-conc, gsimmons, yes finally! :D but is there a reason why the source code had to be obtained, was there no .deb way to do this?
01:38<gsimmons>deniz_: You're using Squeeze. The pre-built virtualbox-ose kernel modules are often out of sync with virtualbox-ose version in testing.

03:34<toobaz1>sanxiyn: well, probably... but the launchpad help says they are automatically retargeted at a given Ubuntu distribution
03:34<toobaz1>I don't like that too much
03:34<toobaz1>(but if I have no alternatives, I will look there)
03:35<sanxiyn>Well, alternative is you can roll your own APT repository... You can put that on any web hosting.

03:51<deniz>sanxiyn, ok well how about an ebook that explains all the linux terminal commands in much more detail than the manual with the man command?
03:52<deniz>sanxiyn, if thats also asking for too much, id like some book that explains things like vm.vfs_cache_pressure in a lot of detail as well as like what modules actually are etc, especially how to make .debs out of non-debianized source code and all that

04:01<lgruszka>Hi all, I have a problem with my brand-new-shiny-lenny :). I'm using gnome, my GPU is Intel 82Q35 Express Integrated Graphics Controller, CPU is quite fast Core2Duo. The problem is that when I want to change window focus, resize window, change desktop, change opened tab in Iceweasel etc. it takes so long (c.a. 1 second). I am also using Vista on this machine and it works much faster.
04:01<deniz>lol but im actually a minor and dont have that much money
04:01<deniz>ok im gonna keep searching and come back
04:02<lgruszka>firstly i checked the gpu drivers, but glxgears have ~1300FPS so it is not a problem.
04:02<sanxiyn>deniz: You mentioned making .deb out of upstream source
04:02<lgruszka>what else can be a reason?
04:02<sanxiyn>deniz: Then you should go to
04:03<deniz>sanxiyn, yes but lots of people call me stupid and "yell" at me when i ask questions and read debian documentation because i find it a little too complicated for me, like i want a book that explains hard stuff in a very elaborated way but thx
04:03<sanxiyn>deniz: Start from "New Maintainer's Guide". It's pretty friendly.
04:04<sanxiyn>deniz: Indeed stuffs like "Debian Policy Manual" is a hard read. (It is a bit like legal code, and not intended for reading while you study.)

06:26<vvas>but i think i've found the culprit, doesn't seem to do that since i killed smartd
06:26<tweber>qasimnasr, if you have the disk and bandwidht for it, you could keep a Debian mirror on the main machine. In that case => debmirror
06:26<tweber>If not, apt-cacher seems to be your best bet.

10:33<dpkg>setup.exe is probably a way of installing Debian Lenny from windows. It is contained on <CD1>, just insert the CD and let it autorun. You can also use it from a USB install. See for more details or see

12:33<jthomas_sb_>urbinek ^^
12:33<debuser4235>check for errors in dmesg, check the root filesystem for errors
12:33<Slurb>ath9k maybe
12:33<Slurb>what kind of card?
12:33<debuser4235>if you had a blackout

12:36<Belier>I just change the "workgroup" (default name) to the name of my domain in that installation
12:36<jthomas_sb_>that shouldn't have messed up much
12:37<urbinek>Belier: cat /etc/resolv.conf
12:37<Belier>yep, is clean. Only the #comments
12:37<Slurb>urbinek: modprobe should create the interface what kind of card is it G or N
12:37<jthomas_sb_>urbinek those last two lines make me think your card is either fried or not connected to the board propely, or the connector is fried
12:38<Belier>I just google before ask here, but I dont find the answer u.u

12:39<jthomas_sb_>but what is it meant to represent?

12:40<Belier>^^U = like a drop in from the head, used in comics when a character is "worried" about something, or ashmed
12:40<urbinek>Slurb: i've used madwifi, reinstall it ? (how to reinstall ath5k ~_~?)
12:41<Slurb>urbinek: try sudo modprobe -r ath5k && sudo modprobe ath5k
12:41<jthomas_sb_>Slurb you think the module is broken? you don't think the "probe of 0000:01:02.0 failed with error -16" indicates hardware on urbinek's machine?
12:41<Belier>U_U or u.u = drop eyes, a hopeless mod emoticon =)
12:41<Belier>ok, then I need to see in the resolv.conf the information about my dns's provider?
12:41<jthomas_sb_>new to me... anyways, how is /etc/resolv.conf looking ?
12:41<Belier>just empy. Only coments =)

12:44<urbinek>Belier: no
12:44<Belier>nameserver xD
12:44<Slurb>with the new one
12:45<Slurb>i think i had to recompile the modules
12:45<urbinek>Slurb: i've did it a while ago, i've switch card to other port
12:45<jthomas_sb_>Belier but that info should come from your DHCP server, and manually adding it may get overwritten in the future
12:45<Slurb>the whole kernel in my case
12:45<Slurb>try compiling the ath9k modules from source
12:45<Belier>now is resolving dns!
12:45<jthomas_sb_>until you reboot
12:46<urbinek>Slurb: any *easy* way to do this
12:46<Belier>I understand (I think) =)
12:46<gsimmons>Slurb: urbinek isn't using a 802.11n device.
12:46<jthomas_sb_>sudo aptitude install module-assistant && sudo m-a prepare && sudo m-a a-i ath5k
12:47<gsimmons>jthomas_sb_: The ath5k module is not packaged separately.
12:47<Belier>now I really (but really) will use some tips of security, if you have some :). A guide from some site for example =D
12:47<urbinek>jthomas_sb_: rolling .. :)
12:47<Slurb>urbinek: get the source from and read the instructions
12:48<jthomas_sb_>urbinek gsimmons said it wouldn't work
12:48<jthomas_sb_>Belier don't use Windows and you're pretty secure from the get go. Make a seperate password for root. make passwords strong and cR4zY!!
12:48<Slurb>urbinek: do you have msn messenger or something?
12:48<Belier>good thing jthomas =D
12:49<Belier>and firewall for debian?

12:55<Slurb>urbinek: you will always have to recompile nvidia modules on a kernel upgrade
12:55<Slurb>unless you use the debian drivers
12:55<urbinek>Slurb: no
12:55<kop>Belier: I usually like to work directly with the underlying tools (iptables) but in the case of iptables there's just too many different ways to create the same configuration, which makes it hard to read and maintain. So I've switched to shorewall.
12:55<urbinek>i need only upgrade headers :P
12:55<Slurb>you use the debian driver then
12:56<urbinek>i've install it from *.deb packages
12:56<Belier>how is shorwall? =)
12:56<Belier>is a console front?
12:56<Slurb>173 i think
12:56<Belier>or gnome/kde?

16:13<vvas>when you tell grub, "root (hd0,0)", you tell it where to look for the files referred to by the next commands

16:13-!-idelegas [] has joined #debian

16:14<vvas>debuser4235, no it's irrelevant when grub is installed on the MBR
16:15-!-fregl [] has joined #debian
16:15<vvas>ml|: so because your kernels reside in /boot, a.k.a. /dev/hda1, a.k.a. (hd0,0), grub can find them as (hd0,0)/vmlinuz- (for example)
16:15<vvas>ml|: does that make sense?

19:43<abrotman>if you don't have a good reason to leave stable, probably better to stay there
19:43<abrotman>of course .. if you do run testing/unstable, learning to use reportbug is appreciated
19:43<abrotman>edbian: similar how?
19:44-!-IAMERROR [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
19:44<edbian>abrotman: For example. Right now ubuntu 9.04 does NOT recognize my wifi card out of the box. Debian stable does. If I switch to squeeze can I expect it not to work?
19:44-!-kisisten [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
19:45<edbian>ubuntu is based on debian squeeze. Does that mean it is debian squeeze with a theme and a couple custom apps?
19:45<abrotman>probably depends which wifi card it is .. though currently squeeze has the same kernel as lenny
19:45<edbian>It probably is the kernel
19:45<abrotman>ubuntu is not based on any versoin fo debian ..
19:46<abrotman>they take a pile of packages from unstable at some point in time .. and then change them (or replace totally) to suit their needs
19:46<edbian>Debian is "the rock upon which Ubuntu is built".
19:46<edbian>Do you think they really change that many packages?

21:24<l1ars>i had it go super smooth
21:24<l1ars>i used a tool called unetbootin
21:25<l1ars>which will download the net_inst image and uncompress it to your usb drive and automagically make it bootable
21:25<ml|>vaikz: look at what pasted abrotman or try unetbootin
21:25<vaikz>yup, i did that. it boot w/o problem.
21:26<vaikz>but when it try to check for cdrom then it can't mount
21:26<bja>vaikz: be sure to download the usb image
21:27<bja>it is common mistake to download the cdrom image and "burn" it to the usb, which won't work properly

23:29<kop>shah16: I've only some general suggestions that I might try, I know nothing about eclipse. First, there's a bunch of eclipse packages. Maybe the feature you want is in one of those.
23:29-!-Zylone [] has joined #debian
23:30<kop>shah16: Second, check the "recommends" for the package. (You can also configure apt to always install recommended packages, and then just remove and re-install.)

23:30<CutMeOwnThroat>shah16, try suns java?
23:31<kop>shah16: Third, read /usr/share/doc/<packagename>/README.Debian to see if there's not something that needs to be turned on or other recommendations. Other good docs can be in that directory too.
