00:07<vince>Good Evening, I was wondering if someone could assist me with getting the nonfree Nvidia Drivers working on Kernel 2.6.29 or 2.6.30. I am having nothing but headaches and google has failed me
00:08<sney>there's a bug with the kernel headers
00:08<sney>they changed the layout and it breaks module-assistant
00:08<sney>I got it installed just by using the nvidia installer. it's not officially supported, but it worked for me (tm)
00:08<vince>sney the Nvidia installer keeps telling me it has to be run as root even when I sudo the command
00:09<sney>su then
00:09<vince>how does that work in Ubuntu?
00:09<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>.
00:09<vince>oh im sorry, I thought I was in the ubuntu room
00:09<sney>that's a bug too
00:09<vince>LOL What that i'm in the wrong room?
00:09<sney>ubuntu users come here by default, it's a long standing point of contention
00:09<vince>Yea big bug LOL
00:10<vince>Thats strange it didn't use to do that
00:10<sney>the ubuntu devs don't seem to want to fix it, even though it would take like 5 seconds
00:10-!-Gromitt_ [] has joined #debian
00:10<sney>sudo su -
00:10<sney>and then do your thing
00:10<vince>Well if Debian is not having these issues I may just switch anyway
00:10<sney>and it'll probably work! but if it doesn't, ask in #ubuntu on instead. :)
00:10-!-Gromitt [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:10<vince>I liked Ubuntu to start with but gettng answers in that room as of late has been like pulling teeth
00:11<vince>And i'm a little pissed at the way the've done some things lately
00:11<sney>well you're welcome to switch. I'm pretty sure the current stable release (lenny) is still on 2.6.26, which doesn't have the nvidia nonfree issue
00:11-!-artista_frustrado [] has joined #debian
00:11<sney>judd: kernels
00:11<vince>The only reason I'm having to fight with this is because they started building the ipv6 into the kernel itself.
00:11<vince>But left no way to disable it in the older kernels
00:12<vince>My ISP dosen't support IPV6 so I am getting horrible latency when trying to do some things, For websites and email it dosen't matter
00:12-!-s5unty [~s5unty@] has quit [Quit: Message too long]
00:12<vince>But it kills anything that streams
00:12<sney>weird, I seem to have ipv6 enabled but I haven't noticed any slowdowns
00:12<sney>maybe it's NIC-specific
00:12<vince>Its a well known issue
00:13<vince>Do a google search for disable IPV6 Ubuntu and you'll get page fulls
00:13<vince>But the attitude I get from the devs seems to be, "Bug your ISP to upgrade its the new standard"
00:13<sney>hah man that's rich
00:13<sney>yeah I'll get right on annoying bellsouth to support something they don't care about
00:14<vince>I like open standards as much as the next guy but theres also the practical fact that my ISP "the death star" could give to tinkers damn what I want
00:14<vince>Your on the old bellsouth network?
00:14<vince>Where at if I may ask?
00:14<sney>nah, I just saw your hostmask when you joined. but I've heard no end of complaints about them, they're second to comcast in the "waaah my isp sucks" department
00:15<vince>Guess what my 2 choices here are?
00:15<cheal>please stick to topic
00:15-!-cheal is now known as chealer
00:15<vince>I went with the devil I work for
00:15<sney>hi chealer. nice to see you're still patrolling this area.
00:15<sney>anyway, can't you disable ipv6 by passing 'noipv6' to the kernel at boot?
00:15<vince>And the older kernels don't support it
00:15<sney>ah, figures.
00:16<vince>Like I said they built it in with no way to shut it off
00:16<vince>29 and 30 can
00:16<sney>typical ubuntu lack of foresight
00:16<vince>But I can't get the binary NVidia drivers to load on it
00:16<sney>switch to debian! we'll make your shit work.
00:16<vince>I just might
00:16-!-MrNaz [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:16<sney>I'm running 2.6.30 with the nvidia-nonfree right now
00:17<vince>I've been an Ubuntu user for years but Im starting to think they're getting too big for their britches
00:17<sney>you're probably at the point where you don't need them to hold your hand as well
00:18<sney>debian has the same basic framework and an identical package management system, it's just more established, has a larger and more helpful userbase, and is better

00:19<sney>if my computer is on, I'm here
00:20<vince>I'm going to run over to the Ubuntu channel then and see if I can get some help
00:20<vince>If not, You'll see me in here tommorow hopefully on a fresh Debian install
00:20<sney>heh, good luck
00:20<vince>Maybe later tonight

00:50<ml|>maybe someday ubuntu developers will fix that xchat bug
00:52<ml|>can't understand why they haven't fixed it, in my view it makes ubuntu look bad, can't even send users to correct irc server and channel
00:54<sney>I can't find it in their bug tracker

00:55-!-behanw_ [~behanw@] has joined #debian

00:56-!-chealer_ [~chealer@] has joined #debian

00:58<sney>almost makes me want to install ubuntu in a vm or something, just so I can see the exact bug in action and report it
00:59<sney>heh, cool, squeeze has ia32-libs-gtk now
00:59<sney>google chrome works :D

02:05<sney>sometimes you just have to wait for bugs to be fixed
02:05<sney>but thankfully here there are usually workarounds
02:05<sney>for that issue, there are definitely workarounds.
02:05-!-blue [] has joined #debian
02:06<vince>They basicly told me it wasn't their fault and shot me a guide that was built for a version of ubuntu 2 versions ago.
02:06<vince>That I had already read over and had a soluton in it that started causing my NVIDIA bug

02:06-!-neoXsys [~neoXsys@] has joined #debian
02:06<vince>and I got irate and said Ready for the desktop my *ss
02:07<sney>so what you want now is the debian netinst for squeeze, which is the current "testing" version of Debian that ships with 2.6.30 by default. It's not as stable as the aptly-named "stable", but if you know what you're doing it'll be no problem, and enough people in here are using squeeze that support is always available
02:07-!-jegc [~jegc@] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
02:08<sney>netinst is a small cd ISO that installs the bare base system and downloads the rest as needed. it's more efficient than a full size iso. I can't remember if ubuntu has one, but they probably don't.
02:09<vince>sney : Does debian have Compiz enabled by default or do I have to install and configure it?
02:09<vince>Ubuntu has that, called NetInstall
02:09<sney>install and configure, but there's information enough on the debian wiki under and as far as I know it's totally painless under Gnome.

02:11<vince>sney, Ok, How hard is it going to be to install the Nvidia driver under Debian with that kernel?
02:12<sney>the current "debian way" to do it is broken (there's a bug filed, they're working on it) so I used the nvidia installer and it worked perfectly
02:12<vince>I tried the nvidia installer under ubuntu, It said it installed successfully and crashed X on boot
02:13<vince>Hopeing Debian fairs better but if its all the same underlying system.................
02:13<sney>well if it doesn't work switch xorg.conf back to the "nv" driver and we'll sort it out
02:13<vince>\gona be on tommorow night?
02:13<vince>It's too late and I have to be at work in the morning
02:14<sney>can't see why I wouldn't be
02:14<vince>I've spent too long on this as it is, I just realized I should have been in bed an hour ago
02:14<sney>and there are other people who can help too
02:14<vince>Damn *nix systems always keep me up late LOL
02:14<sney>been there
02:16<vince>Ok sney, I appreciate the help and the offer to get me started with Debian, I'll get that ISO and drop in tommorow and let you know how its going

04:43<wekt>What is the Debian way(s) to not start the display manager (gdm,kdm) even when they are installed?

05:05<wekt>I do not know why they were removed. Will apt automatically remove depending packages if one tells it to remove a basis package?

05:07<wekt>If it is a problem to have too high a version of a package, the package tools will tell you. you do not need to remove them yourself. If you were to install a new version of an installed package, you would do it with 'apt-get install' or 'aptitude install'.

09:14<eoliva>Why every time I reboot my Debian Sid, it comes with sound muted.
09:14<tbrock>is there a good guide to setting up dhcp-server in lenny so I don't have to bother you guys
09:14<Zathraz>eoliva, do you have more than 1 soundcard?
09:15-!-sly [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
09:16<Zathraz>muted soundcards and broken soundsystems with more than 1 soundcard are not uncommon after kernel 2.6.22 or something :-( See also dmesg
09:17<Zathraz>I am also looking for a solution for these issues
09:17<eoliva>Zathraz, when I installed my /proc/asound/cards said that I had 3 cards...
09:17<eoliva>but then I tried to change the default card...and blacklist the others...
09:17-!-arw [foobar@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
09:17<eoliva>and so, now I'm only seeing one card
09:17<Zathraz>eoliva, it could very well be that also the default soundcard setting is wrong after rebooting
09:17<Zathraz>eoliva, but how many cards do you have?
09:18<eoliva>one, integrated
09:18<eoliva>but the asound showed something like "pcsp"
09:18<abraham>thats pc speaker
09:19<Zathraz>hmm. I have one integrated and one as a PCI card. Lenny however makes a mess of it. Did not do that until Lenny became stable and after the next update or 3 things got very wrong

10:32<kardan_>i tried to install backuppc. apt-listbugs showed some bugs. I accidently pressed 'p' and pinned all packages. now I cant install it: Package backuppc is not available, but is referred to by another package

10:32<jidm>ml|: i failed at tying netbooting trough PXE :(
10:32<ml|>10:32:05 <dpkg_> UNetbootin allows you to create bootable USB drives for a variety of Linux distributions from Windows or Linux, without requiring you to burn a CD. You can either let it download one of the many distributions supported out-of-the-box for you, or supply
10:32<ml|> your own Linux <iso> file if youve already downloaded one or your preferred distribution isn't on the list.

11:43<EmleyMoor>If you want lazarus you may have to consider backporting
11:43<ml|>payl2: looked at
11:43<jthomas_sb_>ah. ok payl2 the lazarus software is newer than your version of debian, so you have to get a newer version of debian to install that software, or perhaps backports as EmleyMoor says
11:43<payl2>okey, now i undersood xD

11:45<payl2>oh, and what is
11:45<dapeamel>ml ok ok I understand
11:45<dapeamel>I have a stable version I guess then.
11:45<jthomas_sb_>payl2 you can try backports, or you can edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list so that any line which has 'stable' or 'lenny' on it gets changed (only that word!) to 'testing'. then, apt-get update && apt-get install lazarus .
11:45<ml|>dapeamel: ok that should work, if you follow dpkg_ directions
11:45<EmleyMoor>payl2: That about which you have just been told - it may carry lazarus for lenny. If not, you'd have to work on it yourself
11:45<jthomas_sb_>then, change that file back to 'lenny' or 'stable' unless you want to start using the testing branch. newer software, less stable tho.
11:46<adb>jthomas_sb_: NOT recommand that to a 2 DAYS user
11:46<dapeamel>I will try
11:46<jthomas_sb_>lol ok
11:46<ml|>jthomas_sb_: that is not good advice
11:46<jthomas_sb_>payl2 i am giving bad advice, sorry :)
11:46<payl2>i don't modifi it
11:46<ml|>payl2: don't do that!
11:46<payl2>don't worry i don't do that
11:46<dpkg_>i heard backport is a package from a newer Debian branch, compiled from source for an older branch to avoid dependency and ABI complications. (2.7.4 and 2.7.10), Ask me about <> and <backport caveat>. See also <simple sid backport>.

11:47<JordiGH>So I just discovered that Linux releases with four version numbers. What does Debian do with that fourth number? E.g., where does the .4 go?
11:48<EmleyMoor>It should backport fairly easily
11:48<adb>payl2: so not even in backports ..
11:48<ml|>dapeamel: read what dpkg_ told you about dmm lenny
11:48<payl2>i don't know what is backports =p

11:53<jthomas_sb_>payl2 its not hard to install programs, but it IS hard to install new programs on older setups. But at the link[]=i386&arch[]=all there is a line to put into the file /etc/apt/sources.list : deb lennyports main
11:53<JordiGH>EmleyMoor: So the Debian packagers do something like what I described? Cherry pick minor patches from the latest release?
11:54<payl2>hm.. i don't understand it =)
11:54<payl2>so i go to pl irc, okey?
11:54<EmleyMoor>JordiGH: Not so much cherry pick... they use whatever the tiny version is at the time of packaging and patch it further if needed.
11:55<jthomas_sb_>payl2 you put this line into the file /etc/apt/sources.list : deb lennyports main
11:55<EmleyMoor>payl2: Can you edit your /etc/apt/sources.list?
11:55<ml|>JordiGH: just about every distro messes with the kernel for use on their distro, so if you want vanilla you need to compile it yourself
11:55<payl2>EmleyMoor, i don't see that file..
11:55<EmleyMoor>payl2: You must have it
11:55<payl2>there is folder: sources.list.d

11:55<payl2>yes i enter folder etc
11:55<EmleyMoor>Ah, that is another way
11:55<jthomas_sb_>payl2 you can add the line to one of the files in that folder, sure.
11:56<koollman>JordiGH: every linux kernel is the result of cherry picking from some other kernels
11:56<JordiGH>ml|: No, I'm happy with what I have, it's just that just now I've discovered that Linux has a fourth tiny version number I never knew about. I was just curious why I had never seen it in all these years. :-)
11:56<payl2>sry so much
11:56<dapeamel>anyone know a good music program which supports ipod I used in windows songbird but .. I found a guide which transfigure it to debian but Im not sure the drivers will work.
11:56<payl2>i don't see that file ..
11:56<payl2>i'm stupid ..
11:56<jthomas_sb_>any file in sources.list.d/
11:56<jthomas_sb_>not stupid
11:56<koollman>JordiGH: oh ... that part is not exactly new. that's linux versionning scheme starting from ... 2.6.8 I think. 2.6.x.y, with y for minor minor releases
11:57<jthomas_sb_>dapeamel Amarok does, gtkpod adds songs but doesn't play music
11:57<payl2>okey, i open that file
11:57<dapeamel>oh ok
11:57<JordiGH>2 is major .6 is minor, .30 is revision and .4 is... subrevision, or whatever.
11:57<EmleyMoor>payl2: Once you've added that line and saved the file, apt-get update and apt-get install lazarus
11:57<jthomas_sb_>Amarok can add songs to an ipod, take somgs from an ipod onto local hard drive, or play songs from the ipod. there is also songbird on linux.

12:32<kop>chrisben: What I've seen, and I don't know about blockhosts, is lots of sshd processes starting and then stopping quickly (or some other process listening on the network). That raises the load average but otherwise places little load on the system.

19:50<dpkg>To set the time in debian, use date --set. The truly enlightened user, however, will install <ntp> to have their clock set automatically on reboot and slewed to match time servers. You may also need to run dpkg-reconfigure tzdata (lenny and later) or tzconfig (etch and earlier) to set the time zone, and verify the UTC setting in /etc/default/rcS prior.

20:53<abrotman>create an xorg.conf
20:56<Getty>ah so i should just add to the empty xorg.conf and its taken beside defaults?
20:57<abrotman>!xorg config
20:57<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 mostly 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.

21:16<user_nasms>Hello Guys, I'm using Squeeze AMD64, and i'm trying to do my Debian Faster. I tried all these things and i cleaned up my harddisk. Someone have another tip of how to do it?
21:16-!-wr| [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
21:16<Someone>Get a faster CPU
21:16<Someone>And more ram
21:17<Someone>8 gigs and an intel i7 should do it
21:17<user_nasms>ok, some tip that not involve money wasting?
21:18<Someone>overclock ur cpu
21:18<Getty>sell your sister
21:19<abrotman>user_nasms: what part of it is slow ?
21:19<user_nasms>and gnome loading
21:20<abrotman>which takes? 15 seconds ?
21:20<Getty>dns reverse lookup problem? i mean its a classic ;)
21:20<user_nasms>gnome or boot?
21:20<Getty>both splitted
21:20<Getty>gnome, do you mean only gdm or with login procedure?
21:20<Getty>login procedure could take some time
21:21<Getty>gdm startup should be farly fast after "rest of boot"
21:21-!-AzaToth [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
21:21<user_nasms>boot i say until appear gdm login: 50 seconds
21:21<user_nasms>after password aceppted 15 seconds
21:22<dr|z3d>user_nasms: If you're complaining about speed, try slim instead of gdm, and xfce instead of gnome.

21:23<user_nasms>dr|z3d, i have enough speed during use,
21:23<user_nasms>my problem is loading....
21:24<dr|z3d>Try slim first.
21:24<dr|z3d>And installing bum and disabling unneeded services from starting also a good idea.
21:25<user_nasms>what do you mean with slim? Deleting unused things? Clear HD? Uninstalling unused applications ?
21:25<abrotman>he's going to end up loading up all those gnome/gtk libs anyways
21:26<dr|z3d>slim is a lightweight greeter.
21:26<dr|z3d>it replaces gdm's functionality.

22:57<abrotman>looks that way .. or grab the source package from sid
22:58<Miro>i grab the source package... and make?
22:58<dpkg>First: See if the package has already been backported. Ask me about <backports>. If it hasn't, 1) Add ONLY a "deb-src ..." line for sid to your sources.list. 2) apt-get update 3) apt-get install build-essential; apt-get build-dep packagename;apt-get -b source packagename; 4) install the resultant debs. If you are just wanting to change the compilation options, ask me about <package recompile>, or see <uupdate> if sid is too old

23:21<Gun_Smoke>I don't know a much at all about networking. I have a few minutes tonight and a couple in the morning to try and figure this out. ideas on where to start? what might be happening? other students have no problems at all.. all running ms systems of course.
23:21<gsimmons>chealer: AR2425/AR5007* is supported in mainline's ath5k since 2.6.27 IIRC.

23:26<Someone>DONT KILL ME
23:27<Getty>its again such a hilarious problem
23:27<Getty>the documentation says: "do the auto option OR give the exact device"
23:28<Getty>so i did gave the exact device, cause i'm no noob
23:28-!-sime [] has joined #debian
23:28<Getty>he found something, but mapped it wrong... using Device "usbauto" fixed anything

23:31<chealer>Gun_Smoke: explain the symptoms
23:32<Gun_Smoke>chealer, I go to the library connect to one of the many open 'studen
23:32<chealer>gsimmons: I can't see that anywhere, but maybe... I don't know ath5k
23:32<Gun_Smoke>... student networks, shutdown leave, hit up say the lounge, or return to the library and I'm done getting on the network for the day.
23:33<Gun_Smoke>Go home, get on my wired network just fine as expected, or even wireless before the router died, and the following day when I return to campus all is well again..
23:34<Gun_Smoke>Debian polluting their network with something that gets my mac blacklisted or something?
23:35<Gun_Smoke>I suppose tomorrow I'll attempt to only use xp to perhaps narrow things down even further.
23:37<chealer>Gun_Smoke: don't expect the wireless network to work automatically on Debian. if it sometimes does, you're just very lucky.

23:38<Gun_Smoke>chealer, why?
23:38<adama26>Gun_Smoke: try making sure to do a DHCP release when you leave the library?
23:38<adama26>wireless works great for me

23:39<Gun_Smoke>adama, shutdown -h should take care of that correct? way to force it?
23:39<Gun_Smoke>Getty, ?
23:39<Getty>Gun_Smoke: wireless is not such a snap under linux sometimes
23:39<adama26>Gun_Smoke: I think so... there is also a command "pump" to do it iirc
23:40<chealer>Gun_Smoke: it needs to be done. wireless drivers have room for improvement, and the user interface is just starting
23:42<Gun_Smoke>'pump' conflicts with 'dhcpcd'
23:42<vince>Would someone be willing to help me get the Binary NVIDIA Driver going in Squeeze please?
23:43<vince>Oh.............. Ok then
23:43<vince>sney conned me into switching off from ubuntu yesterday and said he'd help but I think i've caught him napping.
23:44<Gun_Smoke>adama26, so if the dhcp is not being release when shutting down debian, would that also explain why xp wouldn't be able to connect either? something to do with mac address?

23:48<adama26>Gun_Smoke: yes it could be trying to detect MAC spoofing
23:49<Gun_Smoke>'macchanger' help me out there? fudge a number or two?

23:56<sney>vince: cleaning the house, got relatives visitin on thursday
23:57<sney>how far did you get?
23:58<vince>sney: Got the base system installed but theres a lot of glitches I need to sort out. Sound does not appear to be functioning, My network isn't being managed so everything thinks i'm offline at first and NVIDIA isn't loaded
23:58<vince>I was working on NVIDIA first since that is what started this scheme in the first place.
23:58<sney>ok, well network-manager and wicd are both good options for the network managing thing
23:59<sney>the debian wiki should have the relevant information for getting your sound up and running, I haven't been an expert on that one since ALSA was built into the kernel
