00:54<meowmiint>hi anyone here i am wanting to find out if its worth me ordering the 5 dvd set of debian
00:54<dpkg>netinst is, like, a small CD image with which you can install Debian. If, during the installation process you have a working Internet connection, you can install more packages straight away, otherwise, you will have a base install and more packages later. See See also <check iso image>, <dialup install>, <usb install>, <pppoe install>, <netboot>, <bf>, <installer>.
00:57<meowmiint>i know that but i'm on dialup
00:57<adb>so not needed, if have a decent internet network link

01:24<meowmiint>??? the terms you have used are not on the link i posted

02:04<Fatboy12345236>OK I got 2 more questions, If you can answer
02:05<jm_>we have a limit of 1 question per day
02:05<Fatboy12345236>When I use install Compiz and use compiz --replace
02:05<Fatboy12345236>It just says like, "Patching zoom effects"
02:05<Fatboy12345236>and hangs
02:05<Fatboy12345236>doesn't do anything
02:06<jm_>what did you expect it to do?
02:06<Fatboy12345236>Do I have to keep the terminal open?
02:07<Fatboy12345236>Because if I close the terminal,
02:07<Fatboy12345236>I loose meh effects
02:07<jm_>start it in the background : 'compiz --replace & disown' (you can also use nohup)
02:08<Fatboy12345236>ok letme give it a try
02:08<jm_>you can also set it as a default instead of changing it manually each time
02:08<majhool>jm_: ah! fglrx-driver was still installed, and it had left its in place. removing it did the trick
02:08<majhool>jm_: thanks for the help
02:08<majhool>glxgears shows 25 FPS! whoa!
02:08<Fatboy12345236>How do I set a default?
02:08<jm_>majhool: ahh good work
02:09<Fatboy12345236>so, I enter "compiz --replace & disown" into the terminal?
02:09<jm_>what does this show - run it as root: update-alternatives --list x-window-manager
02:09<jm_>yeah without ""
02:09<jm_>(that's not to set it as a default btw)
02:10<Fatboy12345236>Am I alive?
02:11<Fatboy12345236>xD Welll, It's still running in the terminal
02:11<jm_>it's running in the background, detached from the tty
02:11-!-xlotlu [~john@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:11<jm_>you should have your prompt back in it
02:11-!-xlotlu [~john@] has joined #debian
02:14<jm_>yeah that's fine, you should be able to close the terminal now
02:14<Fatboy12345236>Another thing is...
02:14<Fatboy12345236>Whenever I logout
02:15<Fatboy12345236>I gotta do the compiz --replace thing AGAIN
02:15<Fatboy12345236>Is there anyway I can change dis?
02:15<Fatboy12345236>Like a startup list?
02:15<jm_>like I said, you can set it as a default - check the output of the command I mentioned above
02:15<Fatboy12345236>I'm kinda new to Linux

02:21<jm_>ok so it's not under that, let me download it and see
02:22<Fatboy12345236>ok.... Thanks for helping a noob....
02:23<jm_>how do you start X?
02:23<Fatboy12345236>What's X? :P

02:25<jm_>do you get a graphical login prompt?
02:26<jm_>in that case I'd try to get it to use ~/.xsession
02:27<Fatboy12345236>Type "~/.xsession" Into terminal?
02:28<jm_>no, it's a file you need to edit with an editor, put in compiz

02:30<Fatboy12345236>so where is the file I need to edit?
02:30<jm_>we also need to start gnome, so I think this is the wrong way to do it, probably best to use gnome's startup mechanism to start compiz --replace
02:30<jm_>~/.xsession is a full path to the file

02:43<jm_>Fatboy12345236: I never used GNOME so my advice is pretty much guessing/searching the web, try asking again later
02:43<Fatboy12345236>:( How can I upgrade GNOME?
02:43<sney>I think there is a thing in the debian wiki about setting up compiz
02:43<jm_>you already have the latest available in your debian release, you'd need to upgrade to testing - not sure if that's a good idea for a newbie
02:43<Fatboy12345236>but not madjusting startup list....
02:44-!-neoXsys [~neoXsys@] has joined #debian

02:45<Fatboy12345236>noobs don't and CANT learn
02:45<Fatboy12345236>newbie's can, but are still new
02:46<sney>debian testing is very usable, but you should be able to get compiz working in stable
02:46<Fatboy12345236>i can
02:46<Fatboy12345236>But I wanta add it to the startup list?
02:46<jm_>would that still start entire gnome session and compiz?
02:46<sney>I don't know, the best would probably be to just keep idling here until someone else who's set it up completely before joins or wakes up

03:36<makkan>I need to control my digital picture frame from ssh. The DPF runs Lenny, and I want it to display whatever I do in ssh on the DPF screen. This is possible via gnu screen with the -x switch but this will not allow me to change window in gnu screen, it does work on the ssh side but the DPF is stuck on the original screen.

04:35<Darkedge>That I can add it to?
04:35<shockdiode>hmm, sorry haven't used compiz in quite some time
04:35<shockdiode>might not be the best guy to ask
04:35<shockdiode>are you trying to get it to start up by default i'm assuming?
04:35<meowmiint>makkan: there are far better os than debian to use on a comp like that
04:35<Darkedge>like a login
04:35<shockdiode>gnome or..
04:35<Darkedge>and compiz starts,
04:36<makkan>meowmiint: really? please do share... ;)
04:36<shockdiode>what desktop environment or window manager are you using?

05:16<edisroh>my bad
05:16<edisroh>dr|z3d, what do you mean by "uninstalling gnome"?
05:16<edisroh>dr|z3d, what do you mean by "purging settings"?
05:16<dr|z3d>jm_: Yeah.. I think we have a few trolls here.
05:17<themill>jm_: and also "t"
05:17<edisroh>t == edisroh == rah
05:17<edisroh>t is the new user I created
05:17<edisroh>edisroh is the username I was assigned at work

05:18<dr|z3d>Yup, trolltime.
05:19<dr|z3d>edisroh: google is a wonderful resource. if you don't understand terms used, take some initiative.
05:19<edisroh>dr|z3d: I understand the words
05:19<edisroh>dr|z3d: I just don't understand what there is you think I can do that I haven't done
05:20<edisroh>ie, what initiative you expect me to display
05:20<ert34>I've installed that e2fsck-static package, but no idea how to use it. shockdiode
05:20<dr|z3d>edisroh: Understand the context and the meaning of what you're being told. Uninstall, purge, these are things you SHOULD know about.
05:20<shockdiode>man e2fsck
05:20<dr|z3d>edisroh: If you don't, google. We're not here to do your background reading for you.
05:20<edisroh>dr|z3d: "purge" what?
05:21<shockdiode>what device is the stick recognized as when you plug it in?
05:21<edisroh>dr|z3d: you're not making much sense
05:21<themill>edisroh: I presume you've tried restarting xorg and gnome
05:21<shockdiode>plug it in and tail /var/log/syslog
05:21-!-alt2006 [] has joined #debian
05:21<edisroh>themill: yes, I have
05:21-!-alt2006 [] has quit []
05:22<shockdiode>then e2fsck whatever the device is
05:22-!-ao2 [~u@2001:1418:117::1] has joined #debian
05:22<shockdiode>if it shows up as /dev/sdb for example, an you have just one partition on it, plug it in and do
05:22<shockdiode>e2fsck /dev/sdb1
05:22<ert34>Dunno, let me try find out. shockdiode
05:22<shockdiode>or e2fsck -y /dev/sdb1
05:22<dr|z3d>edisroh: I'm making perfect sense. Just because you're ignorant, don't blame me. Uninstall Gnome, purge settings, reinstall. Simple. And CLEAR.
05:22-!-narcan [] has joined #debian
05:23<shockdiode>i'm sorry, i've gotta pass out but i'm sure someone here can assist you with the fsck process
05:23<shockdiode>not too rough once you figure out which device to check
05:23<edisroh>dr|z3d: which packages constitute "gnome"? which files constitute "settings" that need to be "purged"? by "purge", do you mean 'dpkg --purge' or 'rm -rf'? this is all very unclear
05:24<dr|z3d>edisroh: dpkg --purge is closest to what you want.
05:25<dr|z3d>That will remove the package settings that _might_ be causing issues, so when you reinstall, you get a FRESH installation with no leftover settings. Make sense?
05:25<themill>Except, of course, that gnome settings are most likely to be in $HOME.
05:25<ert34>I am already finding the device name.
05:26<edisroh>dr|z3d: it doesn't make sense, no; which packages are you talking about?
05:27<xeon-enouf>edisroh: you want to purge any/all gnome? or ...
05:27<dr|z3d>edisroh: gnome, in essence. What you're having issues with, right? Whatever the package name is..
05:27<ert34>I have 8 different syslog.gz
05:27<dr|z3d>edisroh: I'd also install Xfce myself, just so you have a gui fallback.
05:27<edisroh>dr|z3d: you realise "gnome" is in fact a very large number of packages, not a single package?
05:27<edisroh>xeon-enouf, I want gnome-panel to appear and gtk to work
05:28<jm_>ert34: log rotation at work
05:28<dr|z3d>xeon-enouf: Yeah, he does, and then reinstall it.
05:28<dr|z3d>edisroh: There's a metapackage.
05:28<xeon-enouf>tasksel --task-packages gnome-desktop ?
05:28<edisroh>xeon-enouf: dr|z3d thinks that running dpkg --purge on a shitload of gnome packages will make a difference
05:29<ert34>jm_, which one tells me what device is used when I plug my usb flash drive?
05:29<shockdiode>ert34: just /var/log/syslog
05:29<shockdiode>you'll see something like:
05:29<xeon-enouf>edisroh: those syslog file each have a number in their name, yes?
05:29<shockdiode>Sep 22 02:28:15 ryan-laptop2 kernel: [230019.398496] sd 10:0:0:0: [sdc] 7938048 512-byte hardwaresectors: (4.06 GB/3.78 GiB)
05:29<edisroh>t@whitefall:~$ tasksel --task-packages gnome-desktop | wc -l
05:29<themill>edisroh: have you tried creating a new user and logging in as that user?
05:29<dr|z3d>edisroh: No, that's not what I recommended, at all. aptitude's purge command is better.
05:29<shockdiode>the [sdc] part is what you're looking for
05:29<edisroh>themill: yes
05:29<shockdiode>so mine is at /dev/sdc
05:29<edisroh>themill: (that user is named "t")
05:29<themill>and ...
05:29<dr|z3d>Also, metapackages.
05:30<dr|z3d>Not individual apps.
05:30<edisroh>themill: and I'm still here asking :-)
05:30<edisroh>themill: there is no change
05:30<xeon-enouf>heh, apt-cache depends gnome-desktop-environment
05:30<shockdiode>so tail /var/log/syslog right after you plug it in
05:30-!-miodi [] has joined #debian
05:31<xeon-enouf>could dmesg | tail even
05:31<shockdiode>that would also work
05:31<ert34>usb-storage: device found at 3
05:31<shockdiode>yup after that
05:31<ert34>What that means?
05:31<shockdiode>it means it found the device, there should be some message like mine after that
05:31<shockdiode>that's from the usb subsystem
05:32<shockdiode>after that the kernel should detect a scsi disk
05:32<shockdiode>and it will look like the message i posted above
05:32<Darkedge>I just removed the bit that has applications places and stuff on it
05:32<xeon-enouf>could even run udevmonitor as root; plug in ;-)

05:32<Darkedge>How can I get it back?

05:33<Darkedge>I really need help!
05:34<xeon-enouf>Darkedge: /msg dpkg gnome

05:35<shockdiode>can you paste the output?
05:35<ert34>Sure, a moment.
05:35<xeon-enouf>fdisk -l should also show worthy info
05:36<shockdiode>or basically, if you do jm_'s suggestion and cat /proc/partitions and see sdb in there
05:36<Darkedge>Please I need help badly!
05:37<shockdiode>then remove the stick, and cat /proc/partitions again and don't see it, that's your guy

05:42<jm_>you don't want it to be mounted when doing fsck anyway
05:42<shockdiode>i don't think fdisk -l does anything without a device argument
05:42<ert34>First I would install fdisk.

05:48<Darkedge>ok -.-
05:48<dr|z3d>Darkedge: It might give you some good insight into how Gnome works.

06:14<Darkedge>jm_ I've sent you meh screenie

06:25<ert34>When jm said partition table is broken I thought, I am *** my system is broken and don't even know.
06:26<dr|z3d>ert34: jm_ is saying, as far as I can discern, that the partition table for your usb device is borked.
06:26<ert34>So, I don't need any backup.
06:27<dr|z3d>ert34: If that's the case, you can have gparted create a new partition table.
06:27<dr|z3d>(for the usb device).
06:27<xeon-enouf>ert34: backups are good ;-)
06:27<xeon-enouf>like .. i wish i backedup my passwds :-P
06:27<ert34>I have nothing to backup in first place.
06:28<xeon-enouf>ert34: your internal HDD will never fail?
06:28<dr|z3d>ert34: If you're talking about a thumb drive with no system files/dirs on it, ie it's not needed for your system to boot, then you can happily initialize the partition table of the usb device without needing to backup Debian. Hope that makes sense.
06:28<ert34>That USB stick was just a truecrypt usb thing.
06:28<jm_>that would also explain why it can't read partition table - depending on ohw truecrypt was used

06:40<Rurd2di_>i dont know what to look for in the config

08:16<petemc>yup :)
08:16<jm_>why do so many people have trouble finding that session menu in gdm?
08:17<dr|z3d>jm_: Because they're not looking for it. They assume, install new DE, new DE becomes default, I guess.
08:17<jm_>dr|z3d: yeah but they never find it even when I tell them to look for it
08:18<dr|z3d>And "session" isn't necessarily the best indicator of different DE's.
08:18<dr|z3d>jm_: Remember, until you click a username in gdm, those menus aren't visible, at least lately.
08:18<dr|z3d>Depends on the gdm theme, I guess.

08:41<Tuplad>so, a couple of days ago I took 20gb from a ntfs partition to add it to my linux partition. my ntfs started acting up and I couldn't recognize the partition in windows, in #debian they suggested to use testdisk to revert the changes gparted did. I did, so today I boot up and my grub is dead, I fixed my grub with the debian installation cd... now my 70gb linux partition is "greyed out" in gparted, it has no filesystem on it, it just empty space O_O
08:42<jm_>Tuplad: how about fdisk?
08:42<jm_>Tuplad: and also check /proc/partitions

08:44<icebrain>Hi! I have "blacklist ssb" in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf, why does it get loaded anyway?

08:45<jm_>icebrain: because this is not the right way to blacklist modules
08:45<ert34>I will purge. No patience.
08:45<Tuplad>jm_: after I fixed grub and loaded in linux, I had a massive fsck to do, like, it took me so long that I just took a heavy object and put it on "y"
08:45<jm_>Tuplad: I think it suggests that space is still not assigned to any partition
08:45<icebrain>jm_: oh. how should I?
08:45<Tuplad>jm_: oh shit... so there's a possibility that I just lost 70gb ? :o

09:01<Tuplad>jm_: what's the diagnose ?
09:01<makkan>I've got a CF>IDE bridge and a CF-card with a very bare debian system. However to reduce disk writes I wonder if there is a way to make the whole system read-only? My thought is that I have an image file where I do my maintenance via QEMU and when I'm done I make the system read-only and copy that image onto the cf-card. Is this possible? Is it a good idea? if not what would you recommend?
09:01<jm_>Tuplad: the only problem I found so far is unused space, nothing else
09:01-!-shweppsie_ [] has joined #debian
09:01<jm_>makkan: just use one of the read only file systems
09:01<Tuplad>jm_: hm... but it can't be unused because there's information on it, right ? it has to be tagged wrong somehow ?
09:01<jm_>Tuplad: how do you know there is?
09:02<Barami>I confused.. @_@
09:02<jm_>Tuplad: do you have partition table as it was before?
09:02<Tuplad>jm_: because that used to be partition I stored my music on
09:02<Tuplad>jm_: no
09:02<xeon-enouf>makkan: if ext3, use noatime/relatime mount option, otherwise use a live-version of debian, so you have COW ability
09:03<makkan>jm_: you mean like cloop?

09:04<Igloo>Although it now thinks alt is alt rather than meta, so I'll have to update all my sawfish bindings :-)

09:12<jm_>makkan: if you don't need write ability then there are proper read-only file systems too
09:12<Tuplad>jm_: so what you think, if I had space on that partition and now it's marked as "unallocated space", is it lost or is there a chance to get it back ?
09:12<jm_>Tuplad: the data is probably still there if you get partiton table back to what it looked like before changing it

10:59<Kostik>dr: the delay isn't a problem since when dropped to a shell I either can't mount root. Only after I do manually load "ext3" module. Why isn't it loading in auto?

12:20<dkr>well, you shouldn't actually have to install a shared library manually. unless you compiled it yuorself?
12:20<Zathraz>How can I fix this please? (not very familiar with ruby and/or/ rails)
12:21<Barami>kmn, You can indecate library path by LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment value..
12:21<kmn>ok, PATH is not for libraries, I should not install etc.

19:52<umer>hey folks, i am trying to install debian testing, i downloaded the daily build, but it fails, it says sudo is not found, this bug seems to be the same issue as mine:
19:52<umer>i was reading on the debian site and it said that i might be able to get a working snapshot instead of a dailybuild, does anyone know where i might be able to get it from? i'm looking for the netinst
19:53<umer>if that is not possible, is it possible for me to get the stable iso, install the minimal system, and then change the repo in /etc/apt/sources.list from lenny to squeeze (or testing not sure which one it would need) and then do an apt-get dist-upgrade?
19:54<themill>umer: fixed earlier this evening apparently.
19:54<umer>themill, i just downloaded the image not more than an hour ago.
19:56<themill>the actual fix won't appear in an image until the newer version is used to build an image though. That might be tomorrow or it might be at a later resync of development tools

19:57<kapil>umer: it is certainly possible to install a minimal stable and then upgrade to testing --- but this will not _test_ the installer. one reason to run testing is to test various aspects of the upcoming release!
19:57<umer>kapil, i understand that...but right now i need a working system.
19:58<icebrain>ert34: use Wicd as the network manager, it's a daemon with separate interfaces, a GTK one and a curses one, so you can control it from both console and Xorg
19:58<umer>this is actually my first install of debian, i went from using ubuntu for a year and a half, to archlinux for half a year, and now i'd like to give debian a whirl
19:58<ert34>icebrain, it seems a solution, thanks.
19:59<umer>kapil, what is the best way of upgrading from stable to testing?
20:00<icebrain>ert34: np. I usually end up using curses in Xorg too, but it's much easier to connect to a new network. It's a pity it doesn't support WPA-Enterprise :(
20:01<kapil>duplicate the lines for "stable" in /etc/apt/sources.list and replace "stable" with "testing". in other words you should have _both_ sets of lines. then run "apt-get update" and "apt-get dist-upgrade".
20:02<kapil>also check the release notes for "testing" for upgrade procedures.
20:04<ert34>Xfce now appears really more fitable for my 10 inch desktop.
20:04<umer>kapil, does it matter in which order the lines appear? for example, should the stable lines appear before testing, or vice versa? or does it not matter?

I've tried both the net install and dvd isos, but the intallers on both of them hang on the "Select and install software" screen right after the "Running tasksel..." process. I can't figure out how to get out of the installer, other than rebooting. What can I do to figure out what the problem is???

21:39<bzzz>u can say no, but maybe the best is to disconnect the network while installing. the bad thing about it is u might end up with no default network in the installed system

21:51<copyleft>Hi,anybody kwow how to configUre one keyboard in X11 and Gnome?
21:51<abrotman>!xorg config
21:51<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 blank - but manual configuration is still possible. Use "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" to set your keyboard layout, use "X -configure" ("X -configure :1" if server is already active) to produce a xorg.conf template.
21:53<copyleft>the keyboard model is Compaq Presario R3000 distribtion for latino America
21:55<copyleft>I try to cofigUre model and layoUt in xorg.conf bUt i have problems
