01:05<gsimmons>mister: Just go ahead and describe your problem.
01:06<mister>i've installed a stable Debian release using debian-503-i386-netinst.iso on my msi wind netbook
01:06-!-cydork [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:06<mister>installation completed
01:06-!-dmoerner [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]

01:09<mister>how can i make the loader work?

01:11-!-Phoenix_the_II [] has joined #debian
01:12<mister>it was an automated installation
01:12<Tanathos>need to install linux partitions?
01:12<mister>no, they are already created
01:12<mister>i need to boot debian,- it doesnt load after a successful instalation
01:13<Tanathos>sorry you do not understand that problem
01:14<Tanathos>ou have installed another operating system
01:14<Tanathos>you have installed another operating system
01:14<mister>i've installed a stable Debian release using debian-503-i386-netinst.iso on my msi wind netbook, installation finished successfully. But the system does not loading after restart: "error loading operation system"

01:15-!-jm_ [] has joined #debian
01:15<mister>yes, i had only xp. now i have xp and debian which does not load
01:16<Tanathos>how are you doing the boot loader configuration
01:16<Tanathos>with LILO
01:17<mister>i did not configure it. the installation did not ask me about it
01:18-!-shashi [~shashi@] has joined #debian
01:18<jm_>if it's lenny it should be grub, not lilo
01:18-!-magellanino [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
01:18<mister>as debian does not load i used a flash to boot and to switch to winxp partition
01:19<mister>yes, i expected grub manager
01:19<jm_>I joined later - what are the symptoms?
01:20<Tanathos>usually you need to configure the boot loader is lilo group or
01:20<mister>i've installed a stable Debian release using debian-503-i386-netinst.iso on my msi wind netbook, installation finished successfully. But the system does not loading after restart: "error loading operation system"...... Seems i have to install grub somehow, right?
01:22<mister>yes, but i thought the installation will ask me to configure it.. but it didnt ask me..
01:23<mister>it was an automated installation
01:23<jm_>error loading operating system is a BIOS message
01:23<jm_>check if your partitions are marked active to start with, also check where GRUB is installed - MBR or the debian partition
01:23<Tanathos>if you are right for the new debian for this step is automatic
01:24<Tanathos>usually have problem if you first install debian and then another operating system
01:24-!-xemacs4321 [] has joined #debian
01:25<mister>i am sure that the partition was active. so i try to find how to check if grub is installed
01:25<mister>no, Tanathos, this is another case.
01:25<mister>first xp, then - debian
01:25<Tanathos>as you see the menu.lst

01:29-!-tzafrir_laptop [~tzafrir@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:31<Tanathos>There should be the group directory if there is not can not load the operating system

01:31-!-Bolle1961 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:32<mister>only /boot/
01:32<mister>should i install grub?
01:32<jm_>did you create a separate /boot partition?
01:32<Tanathos>in this directory and the configuration of your OS boot
01:32-!-cahoot [~radix@] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
01:32<mister>no, i did not
01:32-!-Konratax [] has joined #debian
01:32<mister>as i remember there were ext3 with "b /" flag
01:33<jm_>then by all means reinstall grub
01:33<dpkg>To reinstall <GRUB> simply boot to your Debian install disk, live CD or whatever else you have, switch to the other console (Alt-F2), then mount your root filesystem (mount -t ext2 /dev/whatever /target ; mount --bind /dev /target/dev), then chroot into it (chroot /target) then run "mount /proc ; update-grub && grub-install /dev/hda". Also ask me about <rescue mode> and <dual boot guide>.
01:33<mister>ok, i'll try. thank you!

02:54<V4HID>my linux is Knoppix
02:54<dpkg>Knoppix is _not_ Debian. Seek Knoppix help in freenode's #knoppix. Knoppix is a live CD distribution which is <based on Debian>, useful as a rescue CD, to test hardware, and for situations where you have access to a computer but it isn't Debian. unofficial: <Debian-live> is the Debian equivalent for publishing live systems.
02:55<jm_>and in any case, don't upgrade libc6 manually like that

02:59<jm_>please don't crash the channel king kong style
02:59<jm_>or should that be crush?
02:59<smhar>ok.. I have firefox using the socket tunneling, that was easy because it has a place where you enter such info. Now Pan does not. Is it possible to run Pan with socket tunneling?
02:59<jm_>what is pan?
03:00<KingKong2009>I am running running testing for the last several years, recently my Intel mobo got roasted so I got an Asus, however the system keeps loosing time
03:00<Gold24>an NNTP reader
03:00<zem>loosing time?
03:01<KingKong2009>Well ever since I got the Asus mobo? How do I know its not Debian and its a faulty battery??
03:01<jm_>right, you can use socksify script - i.e. runsocks, tsocks ...
03:02<zem>KingKong2009: what do you mean by loosing time?
03:02<jm_>KingKong2009: when does it do that?
03:03<KingKong2009>zem, Everytime I reboot the PC after using Debian for several hours the time is not accurate
03:03<jm_>you need to use ntp - that's quite common
03:03<smhar>jm_ news reader,
03:03<jm_>smhar: yeah, see above
03:04<KingKong2009>Yes I used to use ntp or ntpudate-debian but I am wondering whats behind this strange behaviour, could it be the battery??
03:04<jm_>no, it's not battery, it's cheap hardware
03:04<Gold24>or bad calibration of hardware more likely
03:04<jm_>another thing - kernel support different clocksource options, you can also play with that (it should pick the best option by default)
03:05<jm_>I see the same thing with many different vendors, so you're not alone
03:06-!-pwork [] has joined #debian
03:06<KingKong2009>jm_, thens whats recommended hardware, my Intel mobo never had this problem
03:06-!-pwork [] has left #debian []
03:08<KingKong2009>OK I will try to replace the battery and see if that helps, otherwise its back to using ntpupdate
03:08<smhar>I installed tsocks, didnot find runsocks, but even the man does not indicate the config file. I need to dig in /etc
03:08-!-xanonus [] has joined #debian
03:08<jm_>don't bother with battery
03:09<KingKong2009>jm_, what do you recommend
03:09<jm_>KingKong2009: I never used intel hardware, can't comment on that
03:09<jm_>KingKong2009: just use ntp daemon, it will synchronise time with NTP servers
03:10-!-dotslash [~frank@] has joined #debian
03:10<KingKong2009>jm_, ok thanks, I shall look into using ntp, I love my Asus mobo even though its 2nd hand (for my Pentium D)...
03:10-!-goodger [] has quit [Quit: I am goodger, please insert pepsi max]
03:12<jm_>KingKong2009: yeah I have asus too, with the same issue ;)
03:12<KingKong2009>Another thing I am getting no sound using "Line Out" but if I use "Line In" then I hear sound, its a little bit odd... I used alsamixer to configure
03:12<jm_>!set time
03:12<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.

04:13<tom>so i can go with grub-set-default in the new vesion.
04:14<tom>i will give it a try even thought the /etc/default/grub stuff is a bit pain in the a***
04:16<jm_>but doesn't that make it the default for each boot after that? or does it delete the default file after boot?

06:02<smajchl>notme: orly i should do again the same installation as before a minute?
06:04<smajchl>ls says that the file does not exist
06:05<smajchl>maybe the netinstall CD 5.0.3 is somehow bad?
06:06<petemc>notme: telling people to reinstall is pretty shitty advice
06:06<smajchl>i just downloaded it, i need some stable desktop with no rolling up updates
06:06<jm_>gnome is not on netinst cd so that can't be
06:07<smajchl>I just checked the base system and [*] Desktop usage or how it was during install and after reboot there was GDM and if i write startx there is gnome...
06:07<jm_>yeah, it was installed from the net, not from the CD
06:07<smajchl>you mean like it is from the internet.. ok
06:07<jm_>hence it's not CD that is bad
06:08<jm_>so startx works but gdm doesn't then - you should check gdm logfile
06:08<smajchl>so? reinstall will not help?
06:08<jm_>or if you have messed with its config files, purging gdm and reinstalling only that might help
06:08<smajchl>/var/log/gdm is the xorg log...
06:09<smajchl>nothing i did
06:09<smajchl>only first started and it didnt work
06:09<jm_>how about /var/gdm, does that exist?
06:10<smajchl> ls /var/
06:10<smajchl>backups cache crash games lib local lock log mail opt run spool tmp
06:10<jm_>does it log to any other files in /var/log?
06:12<jm_>another option would be to enable debugging for it
06:12<smajchl>i dont know there is /var/log/gdm/:0.log and there is some short log of X11 but no error

07:44<peej>libasound2: /usr/share/alsa/pcm/surround51.conf
07:45<peej>um.. documentation? what documentation?
07:46<peej>ikkaro: how have you checked card throughput?
07:47<ikkaro>i've another 3ware working fine (more or less)
07:47<ikkaro>but this one is poor
07:47<ikkaro>and the server isn't working
07:48<ikkaro>and have a lot of iowait
07:48<gogo39>maybe this will help:

07:49<peej>ikkaro: did you physically swap the cards to test them?
07:50-!-Hazelesque [] has joined #debian
07:51<handjob>peej, Thank you. The file exists (yet i am not sure what was the "apt-file"). Can you tell me what do i need to do with it in order to enjoy more speakers?

07:54<jm_>handjob: do you have a 5.1 card? did you actaully test with a proper 5.1 sound sample?
07:56<handjob>jm_, I have SB live 5.1.I didn't tested the sound although i am sure it does work. By the way how to test?
07:58<jm_>handjob: speaker-test -c 6, there are also better and free sound samples to test with

08:06<jm_>handjob: is that the original emu10k1 = sb live card? if so that's the one I tested this with some years ago
08:07<handjob>jm_, Yes it's the original. Mostly strange.

08:07<jm_>handjob: try to found a proper dts sample and test with mplayer -channels 6
08:08<jsd666>I've got 2 problems when booting in debian on notebook. first one is that udev displays 'Waiting for /dev to be fully populated...[ 10.316410] Error: Driver 'pcspkr' is already registered, aborting...' during boot and it hangs for about 1-2minutes but then, it works well till 'Setting console screen modes and fonts' and it hangs forever...
08:08<jm_>right now I have audigy 2 card with 2.1 speakers so I can't be arsed testing again
08:08<dpkg>pcspkr is probably makes an annoying BEEPing <bell> sound from within your computer (usually a piezo spkr, attached to the Motherboard). Add "blacklist pcspkr" to any file in /etc/modprobe.d/ (/blacklist, /local, /blacklist.local, etc) to kill it -- and/or "blacklist snd_pcsp" since 2.6.26 kernels - 'alsamixer' might show a PC Speak[er] slider/option as well. Ensure /etc/modules does not contain any modules you're blacklisting

08:09<jsd666>I've tried blacklisting it but this isn't the main problem
08:09<Tchellow>someone help me with the bacula backup server?
08:09<jsd666>'Setting console screen modes and fonts' is the main problem
08:09-!-SiCuTDeUx [~axzelmari@] has joined #debian
08:09<Tchellow>I can not connect the server to a client windows
08:10<jm_>jsd666: are you sure it's that bit?
08:11<jsd666>I'm just sure that it hangs at this point
08:11<jsd666>normaly there should come 'Setting up general console font' after this so I think it's it.
08:11<Tchellow>checked the netstat and the port is listening, but does not connect, it must be some secret, varis follow tutorials but does not work
08:12<jm_>perhaps use kbd instead of console-tools then
08:12-!-mobil-7k [] has joined #debian
08:13<jm_>alternatively, add "set -x" in the script as 2nd line to see where it hangs

11:10<agurney>Since 2 weeks or so, when running a process in xterm, I'm unable to send SIGINT (either via ctrl-c or kill -2) : the signal gets ignored. This doesn't happen in a text console. I've searched the bug database without success. Typical X session launched via GDM, and uses awesome as a WM. I'm using xterm as terminal. Any hint is welcome, because I'm at loss and this situation is quite painful.

14:42<arifd86>that was my guess, but will that actually work, will it not think the @ as part of the first variable name?
14:42<arifd86>this is my homework, so to speak, mjt :)
14:43<dpkg>TIAS is "Try It And See"... or what you could have done first.
14:43<arifd86>i want to learn bash, by creating an ssh script
14:43<mjt>so read the fine manual, what's considered a variable name
14:43-!-xayon_ is now known as XayOn_Lap
14:44<arifd86>where is such a fine manual, I have the bash-beginners-guide-open but offers no answer
14:44<adama>you also have a computer in front of you, on which you can easily test your "problem"
14:45<mjt> name A word consisting only of alphanumeric characters and under‐
14:45<mjt> scores, and beginning with an alphabetic character or an under‐
14:45<mjt> score. Also referred to as an identifier.
14:45<blendmaster1024>faheem, you still there? i'm working on the one-liner
14:45-!-nakahe [~nakhal@] has joined #debian
14:45<faheem>blendmaster1024: yes, still here.
14:45<nakahe>Why might sshd /not/ write logs when authentication fails... i.e. i'm sshing in as a user listed in AllowUsers, but intentionally not using the private key, and password's not accepted, so the ssh attempt fails, but nothing is written to /var/log/auth.log
14:45<nakahe>t's not that i get no logs. i get no logs when a valid user fails login.
14:45<mjt>arifd86: that's one of the first things from bash manual. But I've no idea why others should do that for you.
14:45<nakahe>i seem to recall normal INFO level logs detailing /why/ a login failed. i.e. invalid key, bad password, etc.
14:46<arifd86>well, i'm irc-ing on my 7 inch linux netbook, but writing the script on my Mac, so not so simply to TIAS all the time
14:46<mjt>better ask, that's for sure.
14:46<blendmaster1024>ok then, faheem, this will print the used, free, and total mem every second (tunable):
14:46-!-tuxwarrior [~tuxwarrio@] has joined #debian
14:46<blendmaster1024>(while true; do tot=$(head -n 1 /proc/meminfo | awk '{print $2}');free=$(head -n 2 /proc/meminfo | tail -n 1 | awk '{print $2}'); used=$[$tot-$free]; echo -e "of $tot K total memory, $used K used and $free K free"; sleep 1; done)
14:46<arifd86>i'm sorry mjt, which bash manual exactly?
14:47<arifd86>i am trying to learn, and I do appreciate your time!
14:47<blendmaster1024>redirect-ready, and adding ' | uniq' to the end of that will make it only print when it changes. of course you can just add '>>logfile' to save it to logfile.
14:47<mjt>arifd86: man bash
14:48*blendmaster1024 has to go to school now, he hopes that was helpful, faheem

16:02<chealer>patchhenk: that means that Linux 2.6.31 was released recently, on 2009-09-09. Debian is a GNU/Linux distribution. It did not yet update the version of Linux it distributes to 2.6.31.

21:58<capricorn>hi. where one can get file list for package linux-headers-2.6.26-1-686.deb? I tried official package descriptions, but 'file list' link there lead to a page that told there isn't such package for this architecture
21:59<adb>try -2.6.26-2-686.deb
22:00<abrotman>capricorn: if the package is installed "dpkg -L foo"
22:00<abrotman>like dpkg -L linux-headers-2.6.26-1-686
22:00<Nemoder>capricorn: you could also just download the deb and open it with file-roller to browse through it
22:01<capricorn>adb, thanks for the tip, I can now get the list on the web
22:02<capricorn>The package is installed, but I stumbled on the problem during apt-get upgrade: there was a buffer_read error on this file list. And it prevented me from doing anything with any package
22:03<capricorn>I managed to build that list by hand using clues from that original (damaged) file, but now I think keeping my custom file is not a good thing to do
22:06<capricorn>adb, do you know if the list for -2-686 is the same as for -1-686?
22:07<capricorn>I mean, is there a big difference between -1- and -2-?
22:07<adb>the list maybe , but the contents not
22:08<adb>anyways install -2-686 , for security reasons

22:22<capricorn>adb, thanks again. I see now: I've just switched to testing, but I didn't know I should explicitly state squeeze for security repos in sources.list
22:22<abrotman>you should state squeeze on all your sources
22:23<capricorn>you mean, 'testing' won't do the trick?

22:29<dpkg>hello, d3co
22:30<abrotman>capricorn: if you state squeeze, when squeeze releases, you'll continue tracking what becomes 'stable' .. if you track testing, you'll end up with a rolling/sometimes broken version
22:30<adb>well , in an year or so ..

22:31<abrotman>adb: stop saying that
22:31<abrotman>capricorn: no need to msg me
22:32<abrotman>it's just that you're tracking a codename .. it generally leads to a better situation for a user (unless htey know exactly why they're doing it)

22:40<capricorn>abrotman, you said I might end up with rolling/broken system. But can't it happen just now? I mean, squeeze is still 'testing', so what's the difference? I've read that new 'testing' repo is forked from the one that becomes stable, which means that say in half a year after squeeze becomes stable it'll not as up-to-date as new testing?
22:40<abrotman>capricorn: yes, but generally the period after 'testing' becomes 'stable' becomes a time of instability for the new 'testing'

23:14<Txt_file>I have a problem with openssh. I want to use apubkey, created it and put it to the other system. If I connect with 'ssh -i .ssh/pubkey' everything works fine but if I 'ssh' ssh tries to use a password and says 'Permission denied (publickey).' So how do I get my ssh to use the pubkey and not the password as default?
23:15<ml|>the server needs to be setup to use keys only
23:16<ml|>PasswordAuthentication no
23:16<Txt_file>is set

23:20<ml|>did you change the login interval?
23:21<Txt_file>the weird is that it worked until 1h ago but now I changed all my keys and it's taking the wrong way
23:22<xeon-enouf>Txt_file: when you do 'ssh -i .ssh/pubkey' are you root? or a regular user? and whats echo $PWD say?
