02:55<ims>franki, maybe maybe not?
02:55<twb>heartbeats: if you have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf, examine it for lines listing valid resolutions. 800x600 may be the highest listed.
02:56<franki^>ims: i don't know, but it mentions a solution to the "cpufreq failed" message, but there could be many causes for that error

03:31<ml|>xeon-enouf: won't hurt to see ;)
03:34<ims>ok I have my manual and I dont see any "scaling" or something to that effect
03:34<ims>should i just remove freqd and frequtilss?
03:35<ml|>ims: what does cpufreq-info say?
03:36<ims>ml, |wait a second...
03:37<ims>ml |, analyzing CPU 0:no or unknown cpufreq driver is active on this CPU
03:38<ims>ml |, what does it mean then?

03:42<ml|>ims: what is the cpu model? is it the one above? or try ... cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep "model name"
03:43<ims>ml|, athlon XP2000
03:44<ims>ml| my motherboard is ECS L&VMM3
03:44<xeon-enouf>ims: you could remove --purge it, or just disable it
03:45<ml|>yes the one above, do as xeon-enouf suggested google to see if scaling works on that cpu, but like xeon-enouf said i doubt it at this point
03:45<xeon-enouf>ims: FWI, /msg dpkg rcconf (nice little util)
03:45<dpkg>somebody said fwiw was for {what,whatever} it's worth
03:46<ml|>or just use update-rc.d ;)

04:19<QQ_ghost>how do I get rid of the borders on the side of maximized windows?
04:22<franki^>i guess that depends on your window manager
04:22<QQ_ghost>lol, sorry. in kde
04:24<franki^>hmm, looks like there's a kde-window-decorator program
04:25<QQ_ghost>what's it called?
04:26<franki^>kde-window-decorator apparently ;)
04:26<franki^>not sure if that helps, sorry, i don't know too much about kde, i'm just having a quick google around
04:27-!-dbast [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
04:27<QQ_ghost>thanks, will have a look
04:27<franki^>if that doesn't support removing window decorations, you can look around for a window manager that does, and use it with kde
04:27<franki^>(openbox, for instance)
04:29-!-skylla [] has joined #debian
04:30<QQ_ghost>that's part of compiz though

04:40-!-Nehyx [] has joined #debian
04:40<QQ_ghost>according to regexp, shouldn't your name be "^franki" or "franki$"
04:41<franki^>heh, i guess it should
04:41<franki^>my problem was that frankie was always taken, so i took to replacing the last character randomly
04:42<franki^>franki^ kind of stuck :P
04:42<franki^>franki$ just doesn't look as cool
04:42<dpkg>Please keep the discussions in #debian on-topic (i.e. Debian support); imagine the chaos if each of the hundreds of people in the channel felt the need to wander off topic for a few minutes every day. #debian-offtopic is the place for longer off-topic discussions.
04:42<franki^>oops, sorry :)
04:43<sejerpz>hi all, I've a strange problem when copying files from a pc to a samba share OR nfs share the network on the client pc freeze

05:26<Worf_>... that's why i patiently wait a bit until 2.6.31 will show up in sid and lenny-backports :)
05:27<chaos>well waiting won't help me at all since the luks encryption i wanna use wasn't compiled into the 2.6.26 or whichever is latest available through apt-get :P
05:27<ml|>2.6.31 gave me problems
05:28<ml|>chaos: lenny?
05:28<chaos>on that box, yes
05:28<chaos>on this one squeeze
05:28<ml|>then use the bpo kernel
05:28<chaos>but .31 is so new i have or was it 6 on this one :)
05:28<ml|>judd: kernels
05:28<judd>ml|: Available kernel versions are: trunk: 2.6.31-rc6-686 (2.6.31~rc6-1~experimental.1~snapshot.14160); sid: 2.6.30-1-686 (2.6.30-6); squeeze: 2.6.30-1-686 (2.6.30-6); lenny-backports: 2.6.30-bpo.1-686 (2.6.30-6~bpo50+1); lenny: 2.6.26-2-686 (2.6.26-17); etchnhalf: 2.6.24-etchnhalf.1-686 (2.6.24-6~etchnhalf.8etch3); etch: 2.6.18-6-686 (2.6.18.dfsg.1-24)
05:29<Worf_>chaos: hmm - maybe you have a look at the kernel, i think one of their maintainers does stuff like that ...
05:29<Worf_>chaos: ( but i might be wrong )
05:30<chaos>i think i'll just give it another go with 2.6.30.x
05:30<chaos>and if that fails i can still widen my search

07:48<dr|z3d>!why aptitude
07:48<dpkg>aptitude has more advanced conflict/dependency resolution than other tools, it has far more advanced searching available, read /usr/share/doc/aptitude/README for more info. Aptitude can also remove or purge one package at the same time as installing others all from the command line, making it much easier to recover from broken dependencies.

07:58<dpkg>A very common problem is that some people prefer to follow a step-by-step tutorial that shows them how to setup their system without reading the documentation or understanding what they are doing. If something goes wrong, they have no clue whatsoever about where to look for hints, and they sometimes decide to start from scratch using a different tutorial. This is not The Proper Way.
07:58<abrotman>LinuxOwnsMe: which tutorial?
07:59<twb>themill: bravo!
07:59<LinuxOwnsMe>its a german tutorial
07:59<abrotman>LinuxOwnsMe: which tutorial?
07:59<LinuxOwnsMe>its says to edit the access with some codes
08:00<abrotman>you're not running etch
08:01<LinuxOwnsMe>is there a problem?
08:01<abrotman>do you think things don't change between releases ?
08:01<LinuxOwnsMe>iam using lenny
08:01<zem>well... it's not much info... should tell you what IS The Proper Way
08:01<LinuxOwnsMe>i do abrotman^^ but i thought its nearly the same
08:02<abrotman>LinuxOwnsMe: did you try looking in /usr/share/doc/phpmyadmin/ ?

09:19<chaos>somebody plz take a look at that's the message i get when kernel dies on boot ... barring typoes :)
09:20<abrotman>you typed that in ?
09:20<abrotman>did you compile your own kernel?
09:21<abrotman>eh .. why?
09:21<chaos>cos the one in depository is missing stuff i want
09:22<abrotman>so is this one apparently ;)
09:22<abrotman>what is the debian kernel missing? why didn't you use the debian config as a starting point? how did you compile it?
09:23<chaos>i did use the deb config to start with but removed a lot and added LUKS encryption
09:23<raboof>odd that 'List of all partitions' lists no partitions at all
09:23<chaos>well there's just one volume .. a raid on a 3ware controller
09:23-!-cahoot [~radix@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

09:25<abrotman>chaos: you removed way too much stuff
09:25<chaos>well ... obviously
09:26<abrotman>chaos: you removed the driver for your controller or maybe you removed the driver for your filesystem .. hopefully not something more low level
09:26-!-thomas [] has joined #debian
09:26-!-thomas [] has left #debian []
09:27<azeem>chaos: what else did you add except LUKS encryption?
09:27<chaos>i found the one which the default kernel is using for my controller (3x_xxxx or something) and that's in the new one as module
09:27<azeem>and what exactly about LUKS encryption wasn't enabled?
09:27<azeem>chaos: do you have a initramfs?
09:29<chaos>don't think so
09:29<azeem>how is the kernel going to find the module for your raid controller then?
09:30<chaos>well it was M so i didn't touch it
09:30<azeem>the Debian kernel also had a working initrd
09:30<azeem>let's go a different route: what exactly was missing in the Debian kernel that you needed?
09:31<chaos>well i was following the LUKS tutorial and it crapped out on me ... i'm redoing it now to find the exact error
09:32-!-neoXsys [] has joined #debian
09:33<chaos>but if the kernel i got from the debian installer had a working initrd wouldn't that still work with the new kernel?
09:34<azeem>I think initrds are pretty much kernel specific

09:40<azeem>but recompiling the kernel is seldom a good strategy
09:41<chaos>well ext4 is still missing from the default kernel :P
09:41<chaos>but i think i can live without that for now
09:41<themill>no it's not
09:41<themill>judd kconfig ext4 --release sid
09:41<judd>themill: Searching for 'ext4' in sid kernel config gives EXT4_FS=m EXT4DEV_COMPAT=y EXT4_FS_XATTR=y EXT4_FS_POSIX_ACL=y EXT4_FS_SECURITY=y.

09:42-!-smiledon [~infected@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:42<abrotman>and even if it were, there is the bpo kernel .. probably easier than compiling your own

10:56<sejerpz>I use networkmanager
10:57<abrotman>depends on which command hyou need to use
10:57<sejerpz>is it 'post-up' in interfaces the right place to put the command?
10:57<sejerpz>abrotman, ethtool -K eth0 gso off

15:21-!-eniac_petrov [~eniac@] has joined #debian
15:22<dpkg>the reason you have to use dpkg --force-confmiss is because whenever your config files (<conffiles>) are gone, dpkg assumes you deleted them on purpose, and that you want them to stay deleted. You can also reinstall them using the following apt-get line: apt-get -o DPkg::Options::="--force-confmiss" --reinstall install <packagename>; or using aptitude, aptitude -o DPkg::Options::="--force-confmiss" reinstall <packagename>;

15:49<chaoticmass>Thanks for helping me try to solve this problem, but I feel this would be much simpler if there was a way to just make apt/dpkg/magic elves just "Nuke apache2, all config files, everthing like it was never there, then install it fresh like it was the first time installing it ever."
15:49<abrotman>there is
15:50<chaoticmass>format my hard drive and reinstall debian?
15:50<abrotman>no .. aptitude purge apache2.2-common ?
15:50<themill>if you purged the apache2.2-common package and then installed apache2 again it should be fine

16:13<dpkg>If you have a question, just ask! For example: "I have a problem with ___; I'm running Debian version ___. When I try to do ___ I get the following output ___. I expected it to do ___."

16:25<diego>Im using testing
16:26<diego>also... the scroll on my touch mouse stopped working (that is worst than vesa driver)
16:26<zem>(well... i guessed testing ^^)
16:26<ml|>diego: do you have unstable in your sources.list?
16:27<diego>module-assistant is installed
16:27<diego>no, I don't have unstable
16:27<ml|>diego: /msg dpkg tum
16:27<ml|>follow that carefully
16:28<chaoticmass>ok.. I feel so dumb now. localhost/myphpscript.php downloads the script. php5 libapache2-mod-php5 php5-cgi are installed, /etc/init.d/apache2 stop'ed and start'ed. Normally just apt-get install apache2 php5 results in a working apache2+php5 config but now something is missing and I don't know what. *bangs head against wall*
16:29<diego>so ... what do you suggest?

18:21<paveq>is you had a filesystem on md0

18:21<paveq>if you have lvm, check out /dev/mapper/

18:22<paveq>haven't used ext4

18:24<huba3600>Hum.. I'll try recreating the 2 old partitions where there are holes. One of the 2 should be the one
18:24<chiku01>hey nfs-utils package not exists any more?
18:24<abrotman>ml|: use -R ?
18:24<paveq>huba3600: did you just remove the partition without degrading the array first?

18:25<paveq>could be fucked up then

18:54<cesurasean>anyone have a clue why I'm getting this error,
18:55<cesurasean>I'm following this tutorial, and I wasn't getting this error before..
18:55<icebrain>noone knows? How about modifying the rc scripts to bail to a shell if the rootfs can't be unmounted?
18:55<johnfg>what about the fglrx problem?

19:08<huba3600>paveq, sorry to bother again :) If I do a file -sL /dev/sda9 it tells me ext4 and even sees the label. But mounting says mount: unknown filesystem type 'linux_raid_member. There's no way to put back a "ext4 structure" without touching the data?

19:21<abrotman>it really won't .. but it should be able to figure out the best driver to use
19:22<johnfg>OK, I'll try that. Is there a way to uninstall the fglrx kernel package?
19:22-!-singularity [] has joined #debian
19:22<abrotman>i have no idea how you installed it
19:23-!-ajavid [] has joined #debian
19:23<johnfg>I installed it with: m-a a-i fglrx
19:23<johnfg>Can I reverse that?
19:25<themill>johnfg: "aptitude remove ~nfglrx~i" will remove all packages with "fglrx" in the name. Change remove to search to check that the list looks ok first...
19:25<johnfg>themill: That will remove the kernel pkgs, too?
19:26<themill>it will remove the package with the fglrx kernel module, yes.
19:26<zem>m-a has some option to remove what was installed with it afaik
19:27<themill>istr the most important package to remove is fglrx-glx
19:27<johnfg>Because I'm using irssi with screen, you do show a ~, tilde, before nfglrx and a ~,tilde after, then i, correct?
19:27-!-bremner [] has joined #debian
19:29<themill>yep that's right. That's aptitude's search syntax ~n means package names, ~i means installed. /msg dpkg aptitude search
19:30<johnfg>OK, so what does the A before the package name mean?
19:30-!-azeem [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

23:03<GhostlyDeath>There will be no password set, hence you don't need a password to use the default keyring
23:03<mib_neetwpgb>oh and i also have a dlink dwa 142
