00:00-!-ioky [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
00:00<rudepeople>twb: LAP TOP
00:00<twb>chealer: what about it?
00:00<rudepeople>I have a laptop, as far as I know there is no such thing as a matrox laptop gpu.
00:00<twb>rudepeople: correct; there are intel GPUs in laptops, however.
00:01<rudepeople>also, having worked OEM for a Matrox partner, I am VERY aware of how "distro friendly" Matrox ISNT
00:01<twb>rudepeople: I was speaking specifically of their GPUs.
00:02<rudepeople>twb, it appears you would be the little toya boy of the channel. please stop speaking.
00:02<twb>rudepeople: if you have a problem with what I'm saying, /ignore me, or take it up with the ops.
00:03<rudepeople>does anyone have a link to a howto for installing the nvidia module that actually works. I'm running squeeze
00:05<ml|>rudepeople: follow the wiki, but install sid versions of what the tells you too nvidia wise and it will work
00:05<rudepeople>and to everyone else in the channel, sorry for being so curt, I find it difficult to stay civil when the "helpers" preface their answers with insults.
00:05-!-Kalessin [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:05<ml|>that nvidia stuff has not made it into testing yet
00:06<rudepeople>ml|: thank you for the suggestion, but I don't wish to use sid components.
00:06<ml|>ok, good luck
00:06<rudepeople>I guess I'll just have to wait.
00:07-!-mode/#debian [+l 352] by debhelper
00:07<ml|>rudepeople: but they will make into testing there is no harm if you do it right, but do what you like
00:11<rudepeople>question: why has no one out there built a .deb to install the nvidia driver in debian? almost every distro out there has done this... or had it done anyway.
00:12<rudepeople>debian seems to be the only one with such perterbations in this reguard... heck even debian's CHILD distro's have done it (Ubuntu, mint, etc.)
00:12<sney>because of the non-free thing
00:13<ml|>because it's not free?
00:14<sney>the module-assistant solution works more often anyway AND takes nvidia's proprietary garbage mostly out of the testing pipeline
00:14-!-s5unty [~s5unty@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:14<sney>so you can have the latest FORCE WEARS without waiting for it to roll through sid
00:14<rudepeople>I get that... but like I said, every other distro has found ways arround it... Fedora has Livna (3rd party repo with non-free crap) Suse, HAS nvidia. and Mint has the drivers in a "private repo" that installs on the sly.
00:14<sney>there may well be private repos for debian as well
00:14-!-anita [] has joined #debian
00:14<sney>I wouldn't be super shocked
00:15<sney>but I don't know there they are, either
00:15<rudepeople>My only problem with module assistant is I have to rerun the command every major update... with a self contained package this wouldn't be the case.
00:15<rudepeople>that's all.
00:15<ml|>don't use it, use nv ;)
00:15<rudepeople>I'd use nv if it didn't suck so hard.
00:16<rudepeople>I likes my regnum! :P
00:16-!-anita [] has quit []
00:16<rudepeople>well the module assistant has been hacking away for a few minutes now... does it usually take this long?
00:17<sney>depends on cpu speed etc
00:17<ml|>well, then use another distro that is more lax
00:17<sney>if it fails you'll know, it doesn't just break silently
00:17<rudepeople>ah... My little lappy isn't the fastest by far, but it holds it's own... used to be the best in class!
00:17-!-Kalessin [] has joined #debian
00:17<rudepeople>XPS m1210
00:18<rudepeople>ml|: I tried, I really tried.
00:18<ml|>rudepeople: ?
00:18<rudepeople>I LITERALLY have tried every distro out there... I keep comeing back to debian because it sucks the least.
00:19<rudepeople>the only REAL problem I have is this nvidia thing
00:19<ml|>right, not so bad to use m-a after a new kernel then :)
00:19<sney>maybe it has something to do with not trying to do quality control for proprietary drivers ;D
00:19<twb>The worst thing about gnewsense is the new spelling of their name ;-P
00:20<rudepeople>oh, it's quality control issues alright! but not just nvidia.
00:20-!-vsayer [] has joined #debian
00:20<rudepeople>bah build failed.
00:21<sney>pastebin the error
00:21<ml|>rudepeople: how did you try?
00:21<rudepeople>sney: hang on...
00:22<rudepeople>ok, how do I export the module assistant error?
00:22<sney>it spits it out to a log somewhere
00:22-!-hugoxrosa [~hugoxrosa@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:22<rudepeople>'k... where's the log?
00:22<sney>I don't remember where, unfortunately, but it's probably in /var
00:22<ml|> /var/log/modmass i think
00:23<Hideo>no, /var/cache/modass
00:23<ml|>right ;)
00:23<Hideo>funny name, modass =P
00:23<ml|>yes it has an ass ;)
00:24<ml|>lumpy but has one ;)
00:25<rudepeople>k, got the log... and pastebin is installed, but I have never used it before... how do I...
00:25<ml|>pastebin -i file -a rudepeople

00:31-!-wnd [] has joined #debian
00:31<ml|>rudepeople: yes, but don't do if you want nvidia drivers to work for you now, good luck
00:32<sney>that looks like the headers bug that I ran into

00:32-!-mhash [] has joined #debian
00:32<rudepeople>ml|: I don't care WHAT driver I use anymore... is there a simple fix for this? or am I just borked?
00:33<Hideo>rudepeople: the ones in sid work fine
00:33<ml|>rudepeople: follow the wiki but use sid nvidia stuff
00:33<Hideo>rudepeople: make sure you clean up first though
00:33<ml|>dpkg: tum
00:33<dpkg>echo 'APT::Default-Release "testing";' >> /etc/apt/apt.conf, edit sources.list, copy your non-security testing lines and change one set to sid. then apt-get update. use apt-get -t sid install foo; to install foo from sid rather than testing as usual. WARNING to SYNAPTIC users: Synaptic ignores Default-Release. set Preferences->Distribution
00:33<ml|>rudepeople: ^^^^ do that first
00:35-!-radovic [~radovic@] has joined #debian
00:36<rudepeople>ml|: am I JUST installing foo from sid?
00:37<rudepeople>ok, I'm confused... and I think I took the last msg too literally...
00:39<rudepeople>ok, I'm having troubles finding a list of packages I will need from sid... any suggestions?
00:39-!-mhash [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:39-!-Kalessin [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:40<ml|>rudepeople: no, follow the above then follow the wiki page and where you need nvidia stuff to install use aptitude install -t unstable nvidia-kernel-source for example
00:40<ml|>rudepeople: very import to follow the above
00:41<xeon-enouf>ml|: what is 'tum' supposed to stand for?
00:42<xeon-enouf>ml|: i made a silly named factoid, because i didn;t know what to call it
00:42<ml|>testing unstable mix, tum
00:43<xeon-enouf>ml|: ahh ok - makes sense then - check this ;-)
00:43<dpkg>rumour has it, walot is please at least pastebin the output of ls -l /dev/disk/by-* ; fdisk -l ; df -hT ; cat /proc/partitions ; cat /proc/mounts ; and blkid ; If you're paranoid, no need to show correct UUIDs, alter them or something.

00:45<dpkg>no idea, xeon-enouf
00:45<xeon-enouf>dpkg: ssm is reply see tum
00:45<dpkg>okay, xeon-enouf

00:45<ml|>does nothing ;)
00:46<ml|>needs <>

00:46<xeon-enouf>oh fuck - right

00:52-!-SnakDoc [] has joined #debian
00:53<SnakDoc>whats the biggest difference between debian and ubuntu ?
00:53<ml|>xeon-enouf: i'm trying to think of one, diskinfo does not sound bad at all
00:53<ml|>SnakDoc: /msg dpkg ubuntu and based on debian
00:54<ml|>then ask in #ubuntu on freenode, not here
00:55<xeon-enouf>SnakDoc: they steal from us :-P
00:55<SnakDoc>so you can't say difference in distros ?
00:56<xeon-enouf>!why debian
00:56<dpkg>Debian strives to maintain your freedom whilst also paying close attention to the technical aspects of making a great OS. Debian is stable, upgradable and well tested. See also (archived at As an added bonus, you get to ask questions in #debian.
00:56<SnakDoc>ok i can accept that ans then
00:56<ml|>xeon-enouf: ah forgot that one
00:57-!-mhash [] has joined #debian
00:57<SnakDoc>thanks i read just was woundering i am running ubuntu 9.04 now with xfce4 and just was woundering difference between this and debian
01:01<SnakDoc>are there any apps/hardware that would work in ubuntu that wouldn't in debian
01:01-!-Piet [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:01-!-Piet_ [] has joined #debian
01:01<sney>sometimes ubuntu takes shortcuts around morality issues that makes it easier to set up stuff like newer video cards
01:02<sney>but technically, anything that is supported by the linux kernel can be made to work under any distro. and the debian support network is much better :)

01:09<SnakDoc>reason i was asking was i was reading / told that ubuntu tends to be newer software where debian is more stable but i am running 2.6.28-15
01:10-!-cydork [] has quit [Quit: Brain Panic]

01:17<ml|>SnakDoc: there is none really, if you use netinst you pick what you like or none at all, but if you download cd1 gnome would be be the only one you can install from cd iirc
01:18<SnakDoc>how would netinst work if my connection uses cisco clean access
01:18<ml|>can you conet to the net?
01:18<rudepeople>how do I fix the gcc compiler link problem?
01:19-!-dserban [] has joined #debian
01:19<SnakDoc>ml| yes but i have to open firefox and enter user info
01:19<ml|>oh, no idea then maybe someone else here knows
01:20<rudepeople>!nvidia compiler fix
01:20<dpkg>To solve the nvidia installer complaining about the gcc version not matching the kernel gcc version, in an ugly but effective way: aptitude install gcc-4.1; mkdir -p ~/bin; ln -s /usr/bin/gcc-4.1 ~/bin/gcc; export PATH=~/bin:$PATH; sh ./; rm ~/bin/gcc But use the debian packages instead, see <why nvidia installer sucks>, or try export IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH=1 and use your regular compiler (that might work...)
01:20<SnakDoc>i may give os a try in virtual machine and see what i come up with
01:20<SnakDoc>thanks for everything
01:21<ml|>but you can do a base/minimal install with netinst, then install what you like afterwords after setting up networking
01:22<SnakDoc>ok cool i like idea of that may see about doing that sometime when i got a break
01:22<SnakDoc>not sure i want to get into full reinstall in middle of school lol

01:24<SnakDoc>i really like idea of building it up myself actually

01:38<rudepeople>Problem... I am ATTEMPTING to install the nvidia driver (whoever thinks the debian way is "easier" needs to be forced to install nvidia drivers "the debian way" for the rest of his life)
01:39<ml|>rudepeople: what's the problem?
01:39<rudepeople>I got to the part in the wiki where I'm supposed to run "apt-cache policy kernel-image-$KVERS linux-headers-$KVERS" and I get: "W: Unable to locate package kernel-image-2.6.30-1-686"
01:40<rudepeople>I checked the repo... yeah... there IS no kernel-image-anything.

01:41<rudepeople>nope. I'm using sid
01:41<Hideo>debian way is easy, I did it in 5 minutes, ask ml|
01:42<ml|>rudepeople: how long using debian and or linux?
01:42<rudepeople>5 years
01:42<Tekk>I'm trying to use gcc to compile a quick c program using -o but it keeps telling me that there's no input files
01:42<rudepeople>My first distro was red hat 7
01:42<rudepeople>I was arround for the birth of sarge
01:42<ml|>then it should be easy ask Hideo how long it took him to do the samething i suggested you try
01:42<twb>rudepeople: if it's hard, have you reported that as a bug?
01:43<rudepeople>god... time for another nuke'n'pave
01:43<gsimmons>rudepeople: I believe that should read "linux-image-$KVERS" instead of kernel-image-$KVERS in your last command.
01:43-!-Tekk [] has quit []
01:43<rudepeople>gsimmons: I thought the same, but I really don't want to screw it up. I have a rule, if I have to reinstall, I have to try a diferant distro.

01:47-!-mode/#debian [+l 343] by debhelper
01:47<twb>Someone should change nvidia-glx to xserver-xorg-video-nouveau in the "nvidia m-a" dpkg info entry.
01:47<twb>Hmm, I guess nvidia-source is in non-free, because m-a can't find it.
01:48-!-debalance_ [] has joined #debian
01:49<ml|>xserver-xorg-video-nouveau is still in experimental
01:49<twb>ml|: I think it was telling me to install that because I had non-free disabled, and it Provides nvidia-glx
01:50<jm_>nouveau lacks some stuff still, i.e. forget about suspend
01:50<ml|>yes it's not ready yet
01:51<EmleyMoor>My partner's Windows box runs Norton 360 - with "Smart Firewall" enabled, it is blocking SMB traffic from my computer. Does anyone know how I can configure it to let me through?
01:51<twb>Yes, ignore me, it was because non-free was off
01:51<twb>It seems like "apt-get install nvidia-glx" also pulls in a precompiled kernel module anyway (nvidia-kernel-2.6.26-2-amd64).
01:52<twb>Anyways, I don't see how this is remotely as hard as, let alone harder than, installing the upstream binary junk.
01:52<ml|>is not
01:52-!-dmoerner [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:53<Hideo>twb: that's why if you compile your own module, you should install nvidia-glx last
01:53<xeon-enouf>EmleyMoor: tell your partner to let you in
01:53<jm_>your own kernel, not your own module
01:53<Hideo>yeah, you know what I meant =)
01:54<twb>Pfft, only ricers and HPC weenies bother to compile their own kernels
01:54<EmleyMoor>xeon-enouf: The response would be "How?" - the only thing that seems to work is turning it off
01:54<jm_><-- ricer

06:02<JustSoul>samba ;(
06:02<twb>n3lab: ITYM init=/usr/bin/emacs
06:03<koollman>twb: if rsync works fine, why do you want to use cp ? (or, 'is that homework?')
06:03<twb>koollman: I'd prefer not to depend on rsync, is all
06:03<jm_>twb: cp -a ../foo/* ../foo/.* dst
06:03<twb>jm_: error: ../foo/* is not a file
06:03<cahalan>koollman: that's another way to look at it, but the past decade has gotten me addicted to not needing to press the down arrow a zillion times just to follow a link
06:03<n3lab>twb, nono :)
06:03<twb>jm_: I guess I could use bash and nullglob
06:03<jm_>twb: yeah
06:04<jm_>twb: or skip .../* part, skel only has .* on my system
06:05<koollman>cahalan: well, if you really need it, there's mouse support in the console of course. you can also just type the beginning of the link's text to get to it, which can be faster (or not, sometimes)
06:05<twb>jm_: but then it's not future-proof
06:05<twb>jm_: :-)
06:05<koollman>not that I find the current console browsers 'ergonomic'. But they're useful sometime
06:05<twb>FWIW, emacs-w3m and w3m are my default browsers
06:05<koollman>They're also nice if you're into zen philosophy ... you can see the void :)
06:05<twb>I love the rel=next support, for example.
06:05<cahalan>koollman: right, like when an upgrade toasted X
06:06<koollman>and realize the emptiness of most websites once you take away the useless graphics
06:06<jm_>twb: what's that rel=next thing?
06:06<cahoot>cahalan: no clues in the logs?
06:06<cahalan>cahoot: nope
06:06<twb>jm_: e.g. google results have a <link> referring to the next page of results
06:06<jm_>twb: ahh, neat
06:06<twb>jm_: instead of having to click "next", you can just keep scrolling down and it automatically goes to the next page
06:06<twb>Also docbook HTML

09:03<bloebb>why not?
09:03<jm_>because packages from both put files there
09:03-!-mjk [] has joined #debian
09:04<bloebb>but you were saying that "it's rpobably best if you don't use separate /boot partitions"
09:04<jm_>yeah I meant that as in without separate /boot at all
09:04<jm_>i.e. /boot is on /
09:04<bloebb>why that?
09:04<jm_>so that you don't need 4 partitions
09:05<jm_>(plus extra for /home etc.)
09:05<bloebb>or 6
09:05<bloebb>but what is wrong about partitions then?

09:05<jm_>who said there's something wrong? it's just that modern systems don't need special setup anymore

09:06<bloebb>but it#s more secure, isn't it?

09:06<abrotman>bloebb: just make sure you only have one system managing your bootloader

11:56<Vasistha>having trouble recovering from s2disk. I think I messed up by upgrading my kernel -- I should have rebooted after the upgrade. I don't want to fry my filesystems, but unsure how to boot right now without doing so. help?
11:57<smhar>ok.. if I boot using a live CD, ie, ubuntu which can use my wifi and can connect me to the intenet, then I chrooted to my installed lenny, could I use that internet connection, and upt-upgrade my lenny?

13:08<dpkg>To change your console keymap, run "dpkg-reconfigure console-data". To change your X keymap, read "man xmodmap", or ask me about <drxx> or use kcontrol, gnome-control-center or similar. For setting up X keymaps, also check out xkeycaps and xev, or ask me about <multimedia keys>. In console you can also use "loadkeys" for once-only/temporary adjustments.

18:31<rudepeople>There is one glaring reason I have yet to successfully install Debian on my Laptop... the nvidia drivers. Last night, I decided to try again. and what ensued has been the typical failure in my endevors for the last 2 years. I ask what the best method for installing the driver was, I was first taunted for not knowing in advance. THEN I get a helpful person who directs me to an article that is obfuscated and flawed. I am also told that I need to
18:31<rudepeople>utilize the SID repo to successfully use the article (the reason the article is flawed as it does not mention this ANYWHERE in it.) I muddle through the article, break my install, and start over the next day. And CUESS WHAT?!? the next day I get ANOTHER "helpful" individual who pushes me to use the nvidia installer. it's 50/50 if I get the "debian way" suggestion or the "nvidia way" suggestion and NEITHER WORK!!!
18:32-!-tjol_ [] has joined #debian
18:33<cahalan>rudepeople: the non-Debian installer will screw your system severely as soon as you update the X server
18:33-!-cahoot [~radix@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:33<rudepeople>so at this point I am fairly certain I know what is required to fix this for everyone... someone needs to build an nvidia-module package so no one has to deal with the useless module-assistant or the broken gcc symlink.
18:34<cahalan>rudepeople: the Debian installer is somewhat less likely to make a mess
18:34<rudepeople>and you know what? I'm more than happy to be said person. I just need help building the first module into a package and then I can HOST it on my domain.
18:34<themill>rudepeople: no-one here should tell you to use the "nvidia way". It should definitely not be a 50:50 problem

18:35<cahalan>rudepeople: Yeah, sort of. If properly done though, it will often prevent you from upgrading. (better than letting things get trashed though)
18:35<rudepeople>so... (and no, I'm not ignoring you, I need to get this all out) who's willing to "hand hold" me through this?
18:36<rudepeople>bear in mind, my goal is to build a .deb that can be installed on ANY debian system to give the module WITHOUT the use of module-assistant.

18:43<themill>rudepeople: due to the non-free nature of the nvidia driver, it's not uncommon for the driver to not compile against various kernels. The packaging for the driver may also have changed so you may need to vary what you are doing

I recommend you run xconfig and allow x to reconfigure itself properly. then focus on your display adapter configurations, the only things the ati driver needs for monitor is the basic refresh settings dpi, and res.

19:50<dondelelcaro>cesurasean: so build a custom suexec (or use suexec-conf) and divert the existing one
19:50<cesurasean>what do you mean?
19:50<dondelelcaro>err, use apache2-suexec-custom, rather
19:50<cesurasean>explain better, please.
19:50<dondelelcaro>cesurasean: there's no need to install your own apache to do that. Just use the ones we already provide, and instead of apache2-suexec, use apache2-suexec-custom

22:31<qlurker>So, I walked in to a hot CPU yesterday, found many ssh-scan procs running (and a bunch of apport instances), all from a script called /var/tmp/delles/a
22:32<sney>you got h4x3d
22:32<ichdasich>qlurker: sounds like you've been owned.
22:32<ichdasich>qlurker: pull the plug, mirror the disks, and set it up again
22:34<qlurker>yup; wire came out; new disk went in; all ports closed (except 22) for now; installed ubuntu jaunty.
22:35<cahalan>qlurker: Cool! (I can say that because it's not me. My X server being dead is not cool.)
22:35<qlurker>wire is back in now; most systems back up now; just wondering: what kind of data could have been pilfered?
22:36<sney>depends on what you had
22:36<ichdasich>qlurker: the question, you should ask your self is: how did they get in?
22:36<cahalan>qlurker: they can install a firefox extension to interact with your bank/broker/paypal
22:37<qlurker>not much, photos; most important stuff was in vim encrypted passwd files.
22:37-!-Holborn [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
22:37<cahalan>qlurker: they can hack vim to collect your password or to do stuff while you have the file open
22:37<qlurker>I'm thinking they came in via http, maybe through ssh, I was running an older vers of openssh (lazy)
22:39<qlurker>Since I reinstalled (on another partition), have closed all ports, wont' be running any binaries from that installation, am I safe?

22:44<qlurker>cahalan: lol, that's eevil.
22:44<qlurker>was 7.10, now 9.4
22:44<qlurker>I was updating as I went
22:44<qlurker>it was getting crusty though
22:44<abrotman>qlurker: please go to #ubuntu on for Ubuntu support
22:45<qlurker>thx for the help, leter
22:46<cahalan>abrotman: know how much Ubuntu deviates from Debian these days? Year by year it's more, right?
22:47<abrotman>don't care .. it's not Debian .. that makes it offtopic here
22:48<qlurker>wasn't needing ubuntu-specific help necessarily, but yeah I was offtopic

23:39<[1]gEn_Eterm>konnus, tuxlord, thx you but i got another question
23:39<[1]gEn_Eterm>why that desition?
23:39<konnus>why what?
23:40<[1]gEn_Eterm>it solved the problem
23:40<[1]gEn_Eterm>but why reset the routeR?
23:40<tuxlord>it pings itself
23:40<konnus>yeah, a 169 ip is a automatic private ip adress
23:40<[1]gEn_Eterm>yep i understand that
23:40<konnus>which is the fallback for when a dhcp server fails in windows
23:41<konnus>and resetting the router is like the easiest fix for that problem so.. go with the easiest and work from there
23:42<tuxlord>konnus: veteran?
23:42<konnus>of what?
23:42<tuxlord>of Deb
23:42<konnus>lol, been using it for about 3 days
23:42<tuxlord>faulty sound drivers
23:43<tuxlord>upgraded packages dont help
23:43<konnus>well, i figured the 169 ip would be universal
