00:00<vince>However it says No Network connection which is odd because obviously there is unless I somehow learned to beam my thoughts into the IRC room LOL
00:00<sney>though if you're on a wired network you shouldn't necessarily need either one
00:01<vince>sney: I'm relatively sure I can get sound going, Ubuntu used to give me headaches with that as well
00:01<vince>The network thing dosen't annoy me much yet
00:01<sney>heh, well it's probably just the same process you went through before
00:01<vince>NVIDIA is critical
00:02<sney>right. did you try the module-assistant thing that adama26 recommended? it was broken when I tried it but that was more than a week ago, and sometimes these things get fixed quickly
00:02<vince>Still broke
00:02<vince>Says there isn't an installation candidate
00:02<vince>tried to do the Nvidia installer directly, It says It dosen't have the kernal source
00:02-!-happydufus [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:03<vince>not sure where to get that for Debian
00:03<vince>yes I am pathentic LOL
00:03<sney>k. for the kernel source, aptitude (or apt-get) install linux-headers-`uname -r`
00:03-!-snogglethorpe [] has joined #debian
00:03<sney>that might fix the whole thing, though it's possible you'll also need build-essential
00:04<vince>Says linux headers is already the newest version
00:05-!-Kvant [hh@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:05-!-Kvant [hh@] has joined #debian
00:06<sney>I'm not vanishing, I'm just trying to think of what else I have installed that made it work
00:06<adama26>vince: I have squueze, and I upgraded my kernel to 2.6.30 yesterday and reinstalled the nvidia driver as per nvidia m-a and here I am :)
00:06-!-manphiz [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:07-!-jegc [~jegc@] has joined #debian
00:08<vince>adama26 : Fresh install less than 10 minutes ago from the netinstall. Did the directions per the document
00:09<vince>If either of you want i'm happy to get VNC or something on here and let you guys take a crack at it
00:09-!-sef [~seffles@] has joined #debian
00:09-!-ElectricElf [] has joined #debian
00:10<sney>heh, normally that is a terrible idea
00:10<vince>Its a fresh install
00:10<sney>I must caution you against giving anyone else root access on your computer
00:10-!-lupa [~lupa@] has joined #debian
00:10<vince>What's the worst you could do besides wipe my drive?
00:11<sney>nuke your XP install, make your wife kill you?
00:11-!-sef [~seffles@] has quit []
00:11-!-lupa [~lupa@] has quit []
00:11<sney>I wouldn't, though. I've been there
00:11<vince>Backed up her bookmarks ;-)
00:11<vince>Just need to disconnect the external before I let you in
00:11<vince>But seriously
00:11<vince>If i run the command adama gives me I dumps this
00:11<vince>Reading state information... Done
00:11<vince>Package nvidia-glx is not available, but is referred to by another package.
00:11<vince>This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
00:11<vince>is only available from another source
00:11<vince>E: Package nvidia-glx has no installation candidate
00:12-!-vince was kicked from #debian by debhelper [use the paster bot or #flood]
00:12-!-Necrun [~Necrun@] has joined #debian
00:12-!-stanzani [] has joined #debian
00:12-!-vince [] has joined #debian
00:12<vince>Or not.
00:12<sney>shoulda warned you about that
00:12<sney>I think it's
00:12<sney>but yeah I see what you mean, does the same thing happen if you aptitude update?
00:13<sney>you might need to put contrib and non-free into your sources.list
00:13-!-ogt [~ogt@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:13<vince>and agian I run the NIVIDA installer from their site, It says the Kernal source isn't loaded
00:13<adama26>vince: you need to add non-free sources
00:13<adama26>nvidia-glx: 173.14.09-5 squeeze/non-free
00:14<vince>adama26, I did through the software sources conrrol panel
00:14<adama26>never used it...
00:14<sney>check sources.list, sometime synaptic is terrible
00:14<vince>one sec
00:14<sney>if you're not comfortable with a console editor you can use sux and leafpad
00:14<vince>sudo gedit
00:14<sney>huh I didn't realize sudo could figure out X
00:15<sney>learn something new every day
00:15-!-stanzani [] has quit []
00:15<vince>you can do that
00:15<vince>or gksudo and it will give you the shiny screen prompt
00:15<adama26>gksu I think is the correct tool to use, for those of us that don't have sudo set up
00:15<vince>or it will in Ubuntu anyway
00:16<sney>bah I just use vim
00:16<vince>If I learned on vim I would too
00:16<vince>There were some DOS tools I used way back in the day
00:16<adama26>nano is easy to use
00:16-!-JanC [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:16<sney>anyway, what's your sources.list say? it's in /etc/apt
00:16<sney>again, pastebin
00:16<vince>Pasting it now
00:16-!-Electric1lf [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:17-!-tbrock [] has quit [Quit: My damn controlling terminal disappeared!]
00:17<adama26>put non-free on your lines
00:18<adama26>I'm off to bed. I have faith that you will get it!!
00:18<vince>done one sec
00:19<vince>did that did an update and rerunning the script
00:19<vince>I should learn VIM or NANO, one of these days i'm going to run into a broke box and not have a live CD handy to boot from
00:20<vince>Either that or i'll run a server without gnome on it
00:20-!-tuxwarrior [~ulises@] has quit [Quit: leaving]
00:21-!-JanC [] has joined #debian
00:21<vince>Ok, This seems to be working better now than before. I thought when I checked the NON FREE boxes in Synaptic it would enable all the non free's like in ubuntu. It's amazing how different these two systems are even though Ubuntu is based off this
00:22<vince>Ok now it says " Build of the package nvidia-kernel-souce failed! How do you wish to proceed?
00:22<sney>does it show an error message or just "failed"
00:23<vince>Just failed, Im checking the build log to see if it gives me any specifics
00:23<vince>Lots of errors at the end
00:24-!-lupa [~lupa@] has joined #debian

04:22<kylei_>why is it so difficult to install the pre-compiled libraries wherever i please? are they compiled with absolute path names in them that cannot be reconfigured otherwise?
04:24-!-adama26 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:25<ml|>kylei_: they are, if you want to install them where you want you need to compile them yourself and set the install dir
04:25<jelly>kylei_: it depends on how they are compiled... if one's not careful, they may end up with absolute paths, yes. There's some discussion about rpath in man ld
04:26<kylei_>ld is another issue. even with a fakeroot, how would I register the libraries (usually done with ldconfig)
04:27<jelly>you _are_ asking about -dev packages, which do not carry the dynamic libs, but other bits needed only for compilation

06:22<Lethalman>you don't have to diff the diff.gz

06:24<Lethalman>raboof, the changelog is the first thing to look at when diffing packages
06:24<tcsetattr>actually you need to have the orig.tar.gz already. but let the dpkg-* tools do the diff'ing, easier than chasing down all the diff options to make a manual diff look just right

13:17<dennis-p>kfred: unrar has limited support for RAR types are you sure it can open that specific RAR file
13:18<kfred>i used winrar in windows to rar a single file
13:18<kfred>and in linux i wanna unrar that file
13:18<dennis-p>can you now longer open a small rar that used to work as well?
13:18<dennis-p>can you no longer open a small rar that used to work as well?
13:19<kfred>i was never able to right click and open with rar, was only able to do it with command line in terminal
13:20<dennis-p>ah i guess winrar created a newer format rar that you have no support for
13:21<dennis-p>you can install 7zip on windows and have a reliable open format

13:25<kfred>im am trying to download winrar in iceweasel is says ther is not enough room to save the file on HD, but there is 16gb left
13:26<kfred>i wanna get winrar and have it run under wine
13:26<dennis-p>that should work as well
13:26<Gold24>kfred: why would you want to do that?
13:26-!-muzaik [~max@] has joined #debian
13:26<kfred>ert34, you could install wine and then install utorrent
13:26<cahoot>why not simply stick to windows?
13:26<kfred>cause i cant right click unrar
13:26<klh>kfred, you can make rar archives without winrar
13:26<kfred>klh, what program
13:27<klh>just install rar packages...
13:27<klh>aptitude install rar
13:27<kfred>oh i was making rar archieve in windows that ftping them to another server with linux
13:27<klh>file-roller will allow you to unrar by right-clicking after
13:28<kfred>apt-get install file-foller?
13:28<klh>file-roller is the archive manager of gnome

14:23<valdyn>Piet: cat /proc/cpuinfo

18:04<dpkg>hmm... 486 is an ancient type of CPU. Nevertheless, it's good enough to have a 486 box as a router with ipmasquerading (and probably a cdr) :P
18:04<dpkg>In a kernel version string, -686 refers to the Intel Pentium Pro, Pentium II, Celeron, Pentium III, Pentium IV, Pentium M (as in the chip used in the "Centrino" brand). You can also use a -686 kernel with the core2 chips for a 32 bit kernel (rather than the amd64 kernel).
18:05<dsdasd>enouf, so what do i do?
18:05<enouf>30MB is a LOT?
18:06<dsdasd>not really, but i have this kernel working why do i need to download another? then all the nvidia kernel rebuild crap etc
18:06<enouf>even on my p150, 30M is nothing

18:07<dpkg>metapackage is, like, a package that normally exists for convenience. It has no content, it just depends on other packages so that you don't have to have a hundred things on an apt-get/aptitude command line. The version of a metapackage can be misleading -- look at what it depends on instead (see the kde metapackage for an example).
18:08<chealer>dsdasd: APT is taking a guess between alternative dependencies - one could argue its solution is not optimal
18:08<chealer>dsdasd: actually, alternative recommendations
18:08<squelos>i cant go onto facebook anymore and youtube videos freeze (well some other flash stuff too causes FF to freeze) what could i do to fix this issu ?

19:57<dli>Smaffler, you are looking for xorg-7.3, while sid has xorg-7.4. you may want to try 7.4 instead, and from backports, of course
19:57<dpkg>[backport] 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>.

19:59*Smaffler is pretty new to linux :(
19:59<dpkg>sid is, like, the <unstable> version of Debian. It's named for the destructive neighbour kid in Toy Story. It is NOT an acronym, but is sometimes backronymed Still In Development anyway.

20:06<dli>Smaffler, when xorg-7.4 arrives, you probably don't need any xorg.conf
20:06<chealer>dli: Smaffler uses stable
20:07<chealer>Smaffler: it's normal. xserver-xorg 1:7.3+20 is only in stable-proposed-updates, which is not configured on any Debian install by default.
20:07<dli>Smaffler, then, just: X -configure, make xorg.conf manuall
20:07<dpkg>For Lenny onwards, ask me about <xorg config>. For Etch, reconfigure your X server by running "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" as root; this will overwrite /etc/X11/xorg.conf but your old file will be backed up. If you're not using Xorg (Sarge or earlier) ask me about <sarge->etch>.
20:07<ajavid>!xorg config
20:07<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.
20:08<dpkg>X.Org X11, the reference implementation of the X Window System, forked from XFree86 4.4RC2. The current release is X11R7.4. To install, ask me about <install x>. Ask me about <drxx> to reconfigure. #xorg on

22:53<ranix>Lanz: instead of that, with Linux, you need to find out what 'chipset' your card is using and download the right driver for that chipset
22:54<ranix>either via apt or from the manufacturer
22:54<Lanz>It's an Atheros AR928X
22:54<Lanz>I have the driver loaded, it's the ath9k module
