00:23<BBuchanan>Greetings again
00:24-!-anrock [] has joined #debian
00:24<BBuchanan>anyone know how to add a zend module?
00:25-!-sybyus7 [~sybyus7@] has quit [Quit: Távozom]
00:25<ajavid>BBuchanan, uhm... you add the extentions somewhere and then you tell php.ini to use them
00:25<ajavid>BBuchanan, google for it
00:25<ajavid>BBuchanan, which specific extention are you looking to install?
00:25-!-fddfoo [~algol@] has joined #debian
00:25<ajavid>cache? optimizer? op-code optimizer/cacher? byte code compiler?
00:25<BBuchanan>lol, I have googled for it, each one says the same and it isn't loading. It's the ioncube loader
00:26<ajavid>ioncube is nasty and ugly
00:26<ajavid>and I refuse to support it
00:26<ajavid>in fact, you won't even find ##php supporting it
00:26<ajavid>its proprietary and people look down on it
00:26<ajavid>if you need only to compile php to bytecode, sure you can use apc or something
00:27<ajavid>but ioncube is looked down upon by the majority as it is used to encrypt php code from prying eyes
00:27<ajavid>plus, ioncube actually is a lot slower than native php due to its encryption
00:27<ajavid>abou 16% slower on average according to some statistics
00:27<ajavid>BBuchanan, with APC you can achieve about 4-5 times more speed in your php software
00:28<ajavid>BBuchanan, good luck
00:30<ajavid>BBuchanan, should have instructions for their paid subscribers on how to install it
00:30<ajavid>BBuchanan, you should contact their support, which I'm guessing you paid for already (or not)
00:30<BBuchanan>its not the encoder its the loader

02:00<twb>Ah, just the form is busted, manually adding the domain directly after the / works

02:30<xeon-enouf>craigevil: checkit
02:30<ajavid>how is that different from the linux buffer
02:30<ajavid>that extention is meant for windows users
02:30<craigevil>ajavid: iceweasel doesnt autocopy when you highlight text
02:31<xeon-enouf>ajavid: it's all fucked up = even with autocutsel installed
02:31<jm_>it does for me

02:40<twb>The problem with copying from or pasting into Iceweasel, particularly from xterm, is because they disagree on how X selections should behave. A clipboard manager papers over this by continuously syncing the various X selections.
02:41<twb> goes into some of the details
02:41<twb>And incidentally, moco doesn't consider it a bug :-/
02:41<ml|>copy and pasting works fine here between iceweasel and urxvt
02:42<twb>ml|: probably because you are running a clipboard daemon, or possibly because you are using a mouse to copy.
02:42-!-spechard [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:42<craigevil>yes it just doesnt work if you run links2 in a tty
02:42<twb>Iceweasel's copy behaviour is different depending on whether it thinks you're copying with a pointer or a keyboard.
02:43<ml|>using vimperator even works to doing yy
02:43<twb>Emacs users can take a palliative measure with (setq x-select-enable-clipboard t)

03:36<kryptic>so, quick question, only reason i came in here at all actually. i am a happy ubuntu user, and am an intermediate linux user, meaning i know how to edit configuration files manually, know where to find everything in the file system, and have used more "hardcore" distro's before, with success. question is, i dont know if i want to continue for ubuntu, and more to the point, i find it embarassing to say i use ubuntu, i get the "noo
03:36<kryptic>b" look. debian seems more sophisticated. so, does debian have any advantages over ubuntu? (i know that ubuntu is based on debian btw)
03:36<ajavid>kryptic, you're goign to get a very biased 'opinion'
03:37<ajavid>kryptic, start using debian and it will become clear to you why (imo) debian is superior
03:37<ajavid>kryptic, good luck
03:37<kryptic>sounds like a good answer to me man
03:37<kryptic>thanks :)
03:37<Hideo>yeah, my opinion would be biased, mainly b/c I have never used ubuntu before :P
03:38-!-davi [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:38<kryptic>ive got the iso sitting on my home server, so ill give it a shot tomorrow
03:38-!-kardan [] has joined #debian
03:38<craigevil>kryptic: debian tends to be faster and has a lot few processes start at boot, it also tends to be upgradeable forever
03:38<twb>The biggest differences between Debian and Ubuntu are the release methodology, the number of packages that receive support and security updates (i.e. in main), the lifetime (i.e. EOL schedule) and Ubuntu's extra emphasis on desktop packages and relaxed attitude towards freedom.
03:38<kryptic>craigevil, i see.
03:39<ajavid>again, these are not 'advantages' per se
03:39<ajavid>those you can only see for yourself when you start using debian
03:39<ajavid>these are merely differences in the two distros

03:39<ajavid>to us, we like our ways better
03:39<ajavid>to ubuntu, they like their ways better
03:39<ajavid>you have to make up your own mind
03:39<craigevil>Processes 96 Uptime 12:56 Memory 184.8/494.1MB
03:39<twb>I would certainly prefer to babysit a Debian or Ubuntu server to a RHEL or Solaris one. Between the two, I am pretty ambivalent, though for my own personal machines I prefer Debian.
03:40<Hideo>Debian also supports more architecture than most other distro, including ubuntu
03:40<kryptic>looks to me like there arent many huge differences, ill be glad to hae a good system and be able to tell people what i use out loud.
03:40<ajavid>that is a huge advantage, more supported archs
03:40-!-streuner_ [] has joined #debian
03:40<kryptic>ajavid, very true haha
03:40<twb>ajavid: only if you use those architectures.
03:40<ajavid>in general, that is a huge advantage debian has over ubuntu
03:41<twb>ajavid: the reason stuff like m68k is no longer first-class in Debian is because the delays on it were dragging back release for more popular architectures.
03:41<ajavid>that also happens unfortunately
03:41<ajavid>we depend on contributors
03:42<ajavid>we can't make them work ;)

03:42<chaos>debootstrap_0.3.3.2etch1_all.deb <-- i created this with my system i just deleted last night can i use that to restore the files i deleted from my /usr & /var?
03:42<chahibi>twb: is there anything more powerful than APT?
03:43<kryptic>ive always wanted to contribue to a good cause, just gotta do more dev stuff, learn some more
03:43<twb>chahibi: that question doesn't really make sense.
03:43<kryptic>chahibi, not that ive ever seen :D
03:43-!-kvn89_ [] has joined #debian
03:43<twb>chahibi: apt is really the only deployment infrastructure for a dpkg/deb system, so it has no competitors.
03:43<jm_>if by APT you mean apt-get, then aptitude is more powerful
03:43<chahibi>twb: compared to other package management systems, if that makes sense
03:44<kryptic>apt may be the reason i stayed with linux for sooo long
03:44<kryptic>but that's true to all package systems with me.
03:44<chahibi>twb: or apt/dpkg if you prefer
03:44<twb>chahibi: I think the reason dpkg/apt seems powerful is that Debian makes a large effort to produce high-quality packages.
03:44<kryptic>package management system*
03:44<twb>That is more a property of the policy manual than of dpkg and apt.
03:44<chahibi>twb: indeed, they are perfectionnist
03:45<twb>Having said that, dpkg is a newer design than rpm, and apt was certainly a leader in the field for a long time, and I think probably still is.
03:45<ajavid>that can be argued
03:45<twb>There are some ways in which dpkg can be improved, which you can find on the wiki. One is biarch support, another is support for tdebs (translations).
03:45<ajavid>but for the most part, yes it is still
03:45<chaos>you might recall i've been harrassing you with my idea of installing debian on a fedora box i have no access to except ssh ... the final solution was debootstrap and i used the box to create that debootstrap package with wich the accident happened last night ... the accident being me deleting a lot of files from /usr and /var
03:45<twb>ajavid: in terms of performance, apt certainly still beats yum.
03:46<craigevil>dpkg also needs to be able to work like gdebi and download missing depends
03:46<dpkg>craigevil: You are person #1 to send an unparseable request
03:46<kryptic>i started off using slackware....killed the linux image in my eyes for a while, haha though i though "im just that bad of a noob"
03:46<kryptic>ended up learning sooo much
03:46<ajavid>craigevil, ... I dunno about that
03:46<kryptic>but thats off subject...

03:47<craigevil>ajavid: well you can do dpkg -i foo and when it doesnt find the depends run apt-get -f install and it will install them , with gdebi it just downloads and installs them
03:47-!-screenn [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:48<craigevil>usefull for the few times you download a .deb that isnt in the repos
03:48<ajavid>oh that

03:48-!-screenn [] has joined #debian
03:48<ajavid>I misunderstoood you
03:48<ajavid>that would be nice to have in aptitude
03:48<twb>Bleh, when did the "host" package disappear?
03:48<twb>It's deps are far less than stupid bind9-host
03:49<twb>I use gdebi regularly, and it's utter, utter shit.
03:49*ajavid doesn't use anything out of repository
03:49<twb>For long term basis, it's better to set up a proper apt repo, which is pretty trivial.
03:49*ajavid also doesn't use any unofficial packages
03:49<ajavid>I always compile from source upstream or use debian packages official
03:49<craigevil>twb: ive only used it a couple of times, had to use it to install my tuxdroid packages
03:49<twb>ajavid: I make my own packages for my own in-house software
03:49<ajavid>I do not trust any other 3rd party packages
03:50<ajavid>twb, same here
03:50<twb>craigevil: for one thing, it's not variadic, so you can't "gdebi foo_*deb foo-common*deb"

11:07-!-zfe [~gianluca@] has joined #debian
11:07<sd_>spozen: not very clear question. Why couldn't you try rsync for this?
11:07<ComradeHaz>Hi all. I run an lvm on RAID2 and am out of space. I have 2 new drives but no idea how I go about migrating over. Could someone point me at a guide or at least give me some hints on what I should bash into google? "migrating lvm raid to new drives" isn't really doing it.
11:08<spozen>No, i need to encrypt the stuff i baclup
11:08<eightyeight>ComradeHaz: raid2? is this hardware raid?
11:08-!-Worf_ [] has joined #debian
11:08<sd_>spozen: rsync uses ssh to communicate -- it's already encrypt
11:09<spozen>yeah but the files aren't encrypted
11:09<ComradeHaz>eightyeight: no, software raid
11:09<ComradeHaz>pair of mirrored drives
11:09<spozen>on the other side
11:09<eightyeight>ComradeHaz: linux software raid? linux software raid only supports 0, 1, 5, 6 and 10
11:10<ComradeHaz>oh, maybe it's not called raid2 then

11:11<eightyeight>ComradeHaz: essentially, you'll need to power down, insert the drives, power up, note the drive assignments, build a new array, or add them to existing, then pvcreate, vgextend and lvcreate or lvextend
11:11<ComradeHaz> <--- this is what I set up
11:11<sd_>ComradeHaz: but I guess you can extend your LVM space to your extra HDDs without involving them into that RAID... ANyway, try to learn those howtos to figure it out...

11:14<ComradeHaz>replace existing
11:14<ComradeHaz>if that makes sense

11:15<eightyeight>you want more space for a certain dir?
11:15<ComradeHaz>the entire system is run from these two drives

11:17-!-chealer [~chealer@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:17<spozen>sd_: you could always send over encrypted files, thats what duplicity does. And rsyncrypto
11:17<eightyeight>ok. in that case, next question should be, do you have enough controller ports for the two disks to have 4 in there temporarily?
11:18-!-saltmiser [] has joined #debian
11:18<eightyeight>why not just have all 4 in there then?
11:18<eightyeight>even more space?
11:18<ComradeHaz>they will be used for something else
11:19<eightyeight>ok. well, we'll have to have all 4 in temorarily then, to copy over data before we can pull the other two
11:19<ComradeHaz>though I will have two 500Gig drives that I may well throw in
11:19<ComradeHaz>the current drives are only 120gig
11:20<ComradeHaz>ok, so do you suggest I just build a new raid and lvm and then just copy over?
11:20<eightyeight>yeah. that would be best
11:20<ComradeHaz>would bit copying not be easiest and then resizing?
11:20<eightyeight>no. that will just take extra time, and it doesn't provide any benefits
11:20<ComradeHaz>or are there pitfalls there?
11:21<ComradeHaz>how should i go about doing that from within my environment?
11:21<ComradeHaz>I've only ever created these with the debian installer
11:21<eightyeight>build a new array, then build an lvm structure on top, rsync the data across the lvs, then tear down the old lvm and raid
11:21<ComradeHaz>that's not quite hat I was asking
11:22<ComradeHaz>I meant actually creating the RAID and LVM
11:22<sd_>ComradeHaz: you can also boot from CD, mount your new hdds, configure, format them, mount, etc, then move part of your structures to newly created space, then adjust fstab, etc.... then reboot the system...
11:22<eightyeight>'mdadm' to build the array. 'pvcreate' to turn the array into a physical volume. 'vgcreate' to create a new volume group, and 'lvcreate' to create the lvs. then 'mkfs' each lv
11:23<ComradeHaz>I think I might be able to manage this :D
11:23<eightyeight>after that, you can rsync the data over from the old lvs to the new lvs
11:23<sd_>ComradeHaz: maybe it would be more simple way for you
11:23<ComradeHaz>thanks alot eightyeight
11:23<ComradeHaz>aye sd_ could always fall back to that if I fail :)
11:23<eightyeight>ComradeHaz: as sd_ mentioned, checkout the raid howto and lvm howto. that will get you going
11:23<ComradeHaz>you have specific ones in mind?

12:51<Bunnyh>rutorrent actually looks nice, but the biggest thing that's keeping me from moving to a linux based (remote controlled) torrent client is that I need to move single files inside the torrents EASILY. running thousands of "ln that-file there" commands is not easy, clicking on a file and selecting "change location" is easy
12:51<Bunnyh>but the client developers seem to think that hard links are a substitute for that feature
12:52<spozen>mm yeah i know what you mean. You could always try NFS or samba and mount the folders you wanna move stuff in
12:52<Bunnyh>That's what I'm doing now, and running utorrent on windows

12:54<Bunnyh>Looks like another one that deserves a try, I'll have to try both that and rutorrent later today
12:54<spozen>i dont quite follow. Why would you need utorrent if you use rtorrent on the server and move the files on your desktop?
12:55<Bunnyh>I'm running utorrent which stores the not-really-needed parts of the torrent files locally, and moves the really needed files to the samba server with human-readable filenames
12:56<Bunnyh>So if I download a torrent that has a thousand extra files and one alienly named important file, I can store that important file where I want with a human-readable name, and still seed it
12:58-!-chealer [~chealer@] has joined #debian
12:59<Bunnyh>Ideally I would just run a daemon on the linux server, and connect to it with a client (that has the ability to change single file locations inside torrents). Of course that client would have to present me the filesystems of the linux server, not those of the client, and that might seem confusing to some.

16:25<hensel>hm, the alsa page in the debian wiki says that dmix is used for this and that it's enabled by default, yet it doesn't work for me
16:25<Bunnyh>Check what files /etc/auto.master includes, and add your servers to those files. I guess you need to file some bug report if the documentation or filenames are wrong

16:54<eightyeight>why partitions? you can do the whole disk

16:54<deniz>ml|, yes i just want to build virtualbox ose modules from source
16:54<eightyeight>for boot?
16:54<ComradeHaz>other part will be lvm
16:54<deniz>for my backported kernel
16:54<ComradeHaz>boot doesn't support lvm
16:55<eightyeight>oh. /boot
16:55<eightyeight>grub2 supports lvm...
16:55<ComradeHaz>do I have grub2
16:55<eightyeight>yes. still marked "experimental", but supports booting off lvs
16:56<ComradeHaz>is it stable enough?
16:56<eightyeight>but anyway: mdadm -l 1 -n 2 -a yes /dev/sd{c,d}1 for partitions
16:56<eightyeight>yeah. i use it. no problems for me, but then i rarely boot my computer
16:56<ComradeHaz>can you tell me what that does, please?
16:56<ml|>deniz: try using apt-show-versions, but don't think that will work since you are only getting the sources and not packages, worth a try i guess
16:57<ComradeHaz>no point just blindly copying and pasting, I'll learn nothing

17:02<xeon-enouf>grep-{status,available,dctrl} perhaps
17:02<eightyeight>it creates /dev/md1 if it doesn't already exist
17:02<xeon-enouf>install grep-dctrl dctrl-tools
17:02<eightyeight>if you do '-a part' then it creates a partitionable array that you can chop up with fdisk or parted

18:38<valdyn>Kralizec: the mozplugger plugin is enabling xpdf to be the pdf viewer plugin on my system
18:39<Kralizec>valdyn: thanks for the tip, I'll check that
18:39<themill>kpdf just works 99.9% of the time for me... no need for multiple viewers except for badly broken pdfs and pdftops normally fixes them
18:39<Kralizec>but I want to see it embedded

21:40<Vrga>no hits, just some mish-mashes of words.
21:41<kop>Vrga: How about making a grub boot floppy, and the messing about at the grub command line to get the thing to boot? (Your not putting quotes around the phrase for google.)
21:41<Vrga>from what i gather, i believe that the actual ramdisking doesnt work properly for some reason... doesnt allocate enough space for the initrd.
21:41<Vrga>that'd be ideal.
21:41<kop>Vrga: You must have a nic, right? Will it pxeboot?

21:43<Vrga>also, that error, "no place after kernel for initrd" means from what i gather that either the initrd doesnt get allocated any space or it doesnt get read properly...
21:43<abrotman>Vrga: so the machien has no network at all? or just that hte pcmcia doesn't work in the installer ?

22:36<kop>Vrga: (Seems to work like those scsi bioses that take over the boot process....)

22:37<Vrga>if i manage to nuke the mbr, i'll just get a 44-40 pin ide adapter and do it via the main pc.
22:37<kop>Vrga: If something goes bad, you brick the laptop. At least until you can replace the hd, which would solve your problem anyway.
22:38<kop>adb: Yeah, but the box does not seem to support pxeboot.
22:38<Vrga>thats why i'm not touching the bios also. (update related)
22:38<Vrga>adb, thanks for the link, but this is a laptop from '97-'98

22:40<kop>adb, Vrga : Humm, I see. The site says you can emulate pxeboot in software. (If you have a linux box to compile the dos program.)

22:53<adama26>I'm having some problem with my synaptics touchpad driver: The vertical scrolling via right edge does not work. synclient -l shows all the correct settings. If I run "synclient RightEdge=5192" the scrolling works, but only for a short time. 5192 is what the value was to begin with. ??

22:57<adama26>horizontal scrolling is fine. If I enable 2-finger vertical scrolling it's fine too.

23:28<jtweety10>Just upgraded etch to lenny but ran into a problem with python, specifically pycentral. Log at Looks like pycentral is having trouble resolving some package. I found a possible solution (, but that seems like a hack. Anybody have advice on how to resolve? Thanks.

23:29<adb>pycentral is not in lenny
23:29<Buff>Will an old Celeron 566Mhz with 256Mb ram run lenny with gnome?
23:30<adb>Buff: yes
23:30<Buff>adb: coolies
23:30<Tekno>another 256 wouldnt hurt
23:30<Buff>I know it won't be fast
23:30<Buff>but keen to see it's performance
23:31<jtweety10>Error log has pycentral pkginstall but trying to setup python-central (0.6.8)
23:31<ml|>maybe use just a window manager like openbox and you'll have better performance
23:32<Buff>ml|: thanks for the tip
23:32<ml|>np and if you want a de lxde is better also
23:33<adb>Buff: jwm , icewm are more appropriate , or so
