00:01<drakeman>interbird, ---> 3212 3046 0 22:14 ? 00:00:01 /usr/bin/metacity --replace gconf
00:01<blueldr137>sorry for pasting too many lines
00:01<blueldr137>should have used pastebin
00:01<drakeman>blueldr137, you have problems with your 3d acceleration
00:02<blueldr137>drakeman: what would cause that?
00:02<blueldr137>drakeman: should I reinstall my xorg packages?
00:02<drakeman>blueldr137, no
00:02<interbird>blueldr137: what does lspci say about your video-card? can you past that specific line here? (not all lines, but you know that)
00:02<drakeman>blueldr137, check this -----
00:03<drakeman>blueldr137, first try to enable the 3d acceleration for your card!
00:03<interbird>drakeman: and no borders ?
00:03<blueldr137>01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV530 [Radeon X1600]
00:03<drakeman>interbird, i have borders
00:03<drakeman>interbird, i dont have problems with the borders in compiz, i m not running compiz right now, but sometimes i enable it!
00:03<interbird>drakeman: so, whats wrong ?
00:03<drakeman>interbird, with me nothing
00:03<drakeman>interbird, the problem is with blueldr137
00:03<blueldr137>drakeman: ok I'll look into that
00:04<drakeman>interbird, i think the problem with blueldr137 is the 3d acceleration, dont you think?
00:05-!-tdn [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
00:05<blueldr137>I bet it's because I don't have the proprietary firmware installed
00:05<drakeman>blueldr137, well before compiz, try to install drivers for your ati card.
00:05<interbird>possibly, dunno, i thought he solved this one with abrotman some lines up ?
00:06<blueldr137>I wasn't on at time
00:06-!-Kalessin [] has joined #debian
00:06<blueldr137>drakeman: I'm going through the steps on that url you gave me. Hopefully that will help
00:07<drakeman>blueldr137, you have lenny? testing? sid?
00:07<blueldr137>drakeman: I have lenny
00:07<blueldr137>drakeman: lenny 5.0.3

00:12<interbird>lspci is how you see what cards are in your system
00:12<blueldr137>maybe it was because I didn't have my driver set in xorg.conf... I added 'Driver "radeonhd"' under the 'Device' section in xorg.conf
00:13<interbird>google linux <card> is how you get to know more about drivers etc.
00:13<blueldr137>how do u exit a 'man' page in the terminal?
00:13<blueldr137>its not ctrl-X

00:18<blueldr137>why when I type 'glxinfo | grep render' would it say unknown chip id????
00:18<blueldr137>drakeman: lol I hope soe
00:18-!-dserban [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:19<blueldr137>"unknown chip id 0x71c0, can't guess" is what it says!
00:19<drakeman>blueldr137, you need this line --- > direct rendering: Yes
00:19<blueldr137>its a radeon x1600xt!
00:19<drakeman>blueldr137, and i get this too ---> OpenGL renderer string: GeForce 8400 GS/PCI/SSE2/3DNOW
00:20<blueldr137>drakeman: my direct rendering line says "direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)"
00:20<drakeman>blueldr137, yo need direct rendering, you follow all the steps in the debian wiki page already?
00:20<blueldr137>drakeman: yes i did
00:20<blueldr137>:( and this is what I get lol
00:20<interbird>lspci|vga gives your card, not ?
00:21-!-drakeman [~drakeman@] has quit [Quit: Data Overflow!!]
00:21-!-Kalessin [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:22<blueldr137>yeah "lspci -v | grep VGA" give me '01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV530 [Radeon X1600] (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])'
00:22<interbird>sorry: lspci|grep -i vga
00:22<blueldr137>oh let me try that
00:22<blueldr137>01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV530 [Radeon X1600]
00:22<blueldr137>is what I get with that command...
00:24<blueldr137>im going to cry now... :(
00:26<interbird>for ati there is the radeon driver or the flgrx driver; you can see what driver(modules) are loaded with lsmod and filter them through grep, like: lsmod | grep -i my-wireless-card-that-works-sometimes-when-i-dont-look
00:27-!-mode/#debian [+l 350] by debhelper
00:27<blueldr137>do you mean install the proprietary drivers?
00:27<interbird>i mean determining what you are actualy running now
00:28<blueldr137>so it would be "lsmod | grep -i" then what?
00:28<interbird>lsmod | grep -i radeon
00:29<interbird>lsmod | grep -i fglrx
00:29<interbird>which is loaded ? (which one hs a line? is present?)
00:29-!-admin1 [~admin1@] has joined #debian
00:30<blueldr137>lsmod|grep -i radeon says "radeon 133920 2" and "drm 91488 3 radeon"
00:30<blueldr137>lsmod |grep -i fglrx says nothing
00:31<admin1>Здесь есть русскоговорящии???
00:32<interbird>thus; looks like the radeon driver is the one steering your ati-card; that's ok, what is not working with this driver ?
00:32<dpkg>Russian speakers, please use (Pogalujsta, zajdite na) (Pazhaluista, zahodite na) #debian-russian @
00:32<blueldr137>thats a good question...
00:32-!-xeon-enouf [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:33<blueldr137>what I don't get is why does it claim 'unknown chip id' when I run 'glxinfo | grep info
00:33<blueldr137>or glxinfo|grep render
00:34<interbird>does lspci give a chipid ?
00:34<blueldr137>it also says "libGL warning: 3D driver returned no fbconfigs."
00:35<blueldr137>01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV530 [Radeon X1600]
00:35<blueldr137>im pretty sure the chip id is RV530
00:35<interbird>LibGL warning comes after glxinfo ?
00:35<blueldr137>then it gives 2 libGL errors
00:36<blueldr137>one says "libGL error: InitDriver failed" and the other says its reverting to "indirect rendering"

00:42<interbird>Well, I don't know; it looks like some module or library is not found; with radeon you could trace that back because you have the source; but that's not trivial. I have to admit I don't know for now and cannot help, sorry.

00:45<seede>ive managed to ruin my rdiff-backup directory in a weird way and was wondering if i could get some help
00:45<seede>it seems to more a permissions prob than rdiff-backup
00:46<interbird>just rebackup and take a look at rsync ?
00:46<seede>if i ls in my backup directory - nothing. touch afile wont work. du tells me there are no files. find wont find anything. but i can cd to directories that i know are there

00:56-!-Kalessin [] has joined #debian
00:57<seede>yeah cd ~/src works and cd /mnt/broke-rdiff-directory/src works
00:58<seede>its an smbmounted share so i just tried unmounting and remounting it
00:58<seede>i haven't had problems with it until today though
00:58<seede>and other files in this share dont have these weird permissions probs
00:58<interbird>~/src is a smb mounted share ?
00:58<seede>no, ~/src is local
00:59<seede>i dont know how i put that junk on screen "DCC...."
00:59<seede>~/src is on /dev/sda5
00:59<seede>as is the rest of ~
01:00<interbird>so . cd ~/src and then ls -la . shown the files in ~/src or not? see what stat can do for you: man stat
01:00<blueldr137>how do I refer to xorg.conf(5) where is that?
01:00<blueldr137>never mind

02:00<khades>there's new theora codec
02:01<khades>is there any recepts to use them on stable?
02:01<dpkg>First: See if the package has already been backported. Ask me about <backports>. If it hasn't, 1) Add ONLY a "deb-src ..." line for sid to your sources.list. 2) apt-get update 3) apt-get install build-essential; apt-get build-dep packagename;apt-get -b source packagename; 4) install the resultant debs. If you are just wanting to change the compilation options, ask me about <package recompile>, or see <uupdate> if sid is too old
02:01<blueldr137>do ATI cards support Composite Rendering?
02:02<blueldr137>I was editing my xorg.conf file and I was wondering if anyone uses an ATI card with 'Composite "enabled"'???

02:15<jm_>blueldr137: the driver in lenny claims to have dri support
02:15<jm_>and DRI should be enabled by default for your card
02:16<blueldr137>when I enter "glxinfo | grep render" I get: 'direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)"
02:16<jm_>did you check X logfile?

02:17<blueldr137>no where is that?

02:17<dpkg>if X isn't starting for you, look for erros in the X log: grep EE /var/log/Xorg.0.log ; or grep EE /var/log/XFree86.0.log
02:17<jm_>that's the location
02:18<jm_>!debug glx
02:18<dpkg>to debug glx/direct rendering, first check if glxinfo reports you have direct rendering; if not, check /var/log/Xorg.0.log for errors/warning, and check if the output of LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo gives any hints

07:15<themill>or just leave, that's fine too.
07:16<Gun_Smoke>I just saw the lenny installer.. Odd that the netinstall was looking for an iso on the local drive.
07:16<Ikarus>Gun_Smoke: it always does
07:16<Ikarus>Gun_Smoke: it is just part of the installer
07:17<Ikarus>Gun_Smoke: it doesn't care if it is started net or whatever
07:17<Gun_Smoke>Ikarus, Oh, I didn't know that. Well it failed, then failed to detect the network card.
07:17<Ikarus>Gun_Smoke: what NIC ?
07:17<Ikarus>I meant type
07:17<Ikarus>alt+F2 and run lspci if you don't know

07:19<Ikarus>unless someone can contradict that and point out that that is why I am having errors :)
07:19<Gun_Smoke>I found a dvd laying around.. that took 3 attempts.
07:20<Gun_Smoke>I can't seem to get the monitor to shutoff.. xset dpms 300 comes back with xset: unable to open display ""

07:25<Ikarus>Gun_Smoke: you can also include the netinst iso on that USB stick
07:25<Ikarus>that will have base on it
07:25<Ikarus>but iirc the stable kernel used in the installer lacks support for the newest of that network card
07:26<Ikarus>meh, my problem will take a better net connection to fix I guess
07:26<Gun_Smoke>Yeah I suppose I could have. I didn't think it would have a problem finding the network hardware.

07:30<adb>Gun_Smoke, sure it not needs some firmware ?
07:31<Gun_Smoke>adb, iirc the netinstaller had worked previously.
07:32<Ikarus>testing debian installer is b0rken
07:32<adb>aha , than use the previous net install
07:33<Gun_Smoke>but all is well on the installer now. I need to get the monitor to blank and to resized some lvm.. knoppix seems to be missing device-mapper from the kernel? no clue.. I build a debian-live rescue.. That should work.
07:33<Ikarus>you can resize modern filesystems on the fly
07:33<Ikarus>(ie, while mounted)
07:33<Gun_Smoke>oh yeah?
07:34<Gold24>Ikarus: yeah the testing installer installs stable by default i think
07:34<Ikarus>Gold24: though I now am thinking it doesn't get it quite right
07:35<Ikarus>given that I have 2 broken packages, on which no bugs exist and which haven't updated since the release of stable
07:35<Gold24>perhaps but i'm quite sure i had to use the expert install to be able to get a testing last i tried
07:35<Gold24>and it's a month or so ago
07:35<Ikarus>yeah, I want a stable install though, just with a testing kernel so I'll tinker some more

10:06<bja>jthomas_sb: firefox 3.5 has a lot of bugs with the plugins, i've heard of lots of people downgrading to 3.0 because of that
10:07<jthomas_sb>so you think its partly being held back because of 3rd party plugins, bja?

15:29<EmleyMoor>Hmmm... works now
15:29<Jflesch>jonatthelinuxexperiment: in /etc/network/interfaces, you can also add 'dns-nameservers' in the desired interface
15:29*EmleyMoor needed a new keyboard anyway
15:30-!-josh_ [] has joined #debian
15:30<Jflesch>(or 'dns-nameserver' ? I don't remember exactly)
15:30<cahoot>EmleyMoor: so now you can hear what you type?
15:30<claytonwalker>cahoot, no it does not. however, at the very top it says "current 1024x768, maximum 1280 x 1280"
15:30<claytonwalker>cahoot, but all i need is 1280x1024
15:30<jonatthelinuxexperiment>Jflesch: in the interfaces file, I have the loopback and eth0, which is my ethernet jack - the wireless on this machine is eth1. How do I go about adding a new interface to the file?
15:31<EmleyMoor>cahoot: Could always hear stuff... couldn't talk into it (and as I wanted it for VoIP that was important)
15:31<Jflesch>jonatthelinuxexperiment: wireless ? so you're using dhcp to get your IP, no ?
15:31-!-ptr [] has joined #debian
15:31<Jflesch>if so, you should also get dns servers by the DHCP, it's weird you don't
15:31<jonatthelinuxexperiment>Jflesch: Yes, the router should perform the resolution
15:32<Jflesch>jonatthelinuxexperiment: are you sure the problem isn't at the router level ?
15:32<jonatthelinuxexperiment>Jflesch: Agreed, and if you can solve the large problem, that would be great
15:32<cahoot>jonatthelinuxexperiment: could you please truncate your nick somewhat?
15:32<dkr>then how could he advertise effectively? ;)
15:32-!-jonatthelinuxexperiment is now known as jonf
15:32<jonf>cahoot: truly, go to my website :P
15:32<benjgvps>Does anyone know if the ATI Rage 128 works out of the box?
15:32<jonf>Jflesch: The problem is likely at the router level, but I can't replicate the issue on any other machine
15:33<jonf>Jflesch: The interim solution last time was to add the address of our DNS server (it's a static server that the router knows about) directly to the resolv.conf file
15:33<cahoot>claytonwalker: xrandr -s 1280x1024 fails?
15:33<jonf>Jflesch: I just can't remember the syntax for that file, and it appears to be empty now (which doesn't make any sense)
15:34-!-infinity_ [] has joined #debian
15:34<Jflesch>jonf: hm, ok, anyway, other solution: you're probably using resolvconf actually, so try to edit /etc/resolvconf/resolvconf.d/tail instead of /etc/resolv.conf
15:34-!-infinity_ [] has quit []
15:34<claytonwalker>cahoot, "Size 1280x1024 not found in available modes"
15:34<Jflesch>then use /etc/init.d/resolvconf restart ; it will regenerate /etc/resolv.conf
15:35<jonf>Jflesch: Ok, I have tail open, what do I put in it?
15:35<cahoot>claytonwalker: you might need create a modeline for that then ( to put in xorg.conf) gtf is one tool for that
15:35<Jflesch>jonf: same as in /etc/resolv.conf
15:35<jonf>Jflesch: what is the syntax? I can't remember what to put in it
15:35<Jflesch>jonf: resolvconf will basically just assemble the bricks in /etc/resolvconf/resolvconf.d
15:35<claytonwalker>cahoot: what is gtf and can i apt-get it?
15:35<dutchy>or try doing a prepend line in /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf then it will always be there, modifying /etc/resolv.conf will not stay, it will be overwritten.
15:36<cahoot>claytonwalker: it's problably already there
15:36<jonf>dutchy: I like your style - what line to I put in dhclient.conf?
15:36<dutchy>jonf: open the files, look at the comments
15:36<claytonwalker>cahoot: how do i use it and then what do i modify? (almost completely new to comand line here)
15:37<dutchy>the prepend line is there already, just fix it and remove the comment

15:40<jonf>dutchy: OK, I added the prepend line, but put the IP of my router on it -- is that correct? I mean, the router clearly isn't doing it's job right now, so should i put the DNS nameserver IP in the file instead?

18:46<tcsetattr>the point is man-db sucks, I want the good old man back.
18:46<weasel>and with *tada* man 3posix you get it.
18:46<themill>manpages-posix-dev contains open.3posix (so man 3posix works)
18:46<weasel>the point is that you apparently don't know how to use the tools correctly.
18:47<tcsetattr>hmm. So debian's man-pages-posix package has renamed them.
18:47<themill>tcsetattr: you're expecting man-db to magically know that you mean 3posix for 3p instead of 3perl. If you want it to make that assumption, send a patch and convince the rest of the world that's good.
18:47-!-hazard2 [] has joined #debian
18:48<tcsetattr>it boils down to this: I have a /usr/man/man3p/open.3p.gz on my system (nont relevant really how I got it there) and man-db is too stupid to show it when it's asked
18:49<themill>tcsetattr: I presume you didn't bother to tell man to look there though
18:49<tcsetattr>and it DOES mix up case of letters when there are pages that differ only in case (like Fcntl vs fcntl)
18:49<weasel>and have you filed bugs about all these issues:?
18:49<tcsetattr>no, the bug is that the traditional man program has been shoved aside for an inadequate replacement
18:50<weasel>you have no idea what you're talking about.
18:50<themill>tcsetattr: given that you randomly created another man page dir that debian doesn't ship, did you think to configure man to look there in /etc/manpath.config?

18:53<tcsetattr>perldoc is a silly reinvention of man, of no value to anyone
18:53<weasel>maybe it finds others because nothing conflicting is in the SECTION search path first.

18:55<weasel>according to the changelog this man entered debian in 1994.
18:55<tcsetattr>the only way to find out whether your campaign will have the support of the masses is to start talking to people. that's what I'm doing.
18:55<themill>tcsetattr: this isn't the place for that. Perhaps email the debian-devel mailing list. But you might like to have some clue what you're talking about before you do so.

18:59<tcsetattr>I'm sorry I didn't write a detailed catalog of the stupid behaviors of man-db. This was only the most recent one, the others are vague memories
18:59<weasel>I'm sorry I ever started listening to you.
18:59<themill>tcsetattr: debian not configuring every single directory that any random upstream decides to ship is hardly debian's fault. Configure your manpath properly or install the man pages from the debian package. pebkac is not debian's problem.
19:00<tcsetattr>it's obviously configured properly or I wouldn't be able to see ANY man pages in that directory.
19:00<tcsetattr>you can't make this a configuration problem. It's a program-being-stupid-by-trying-to-outguess-the-user problem
19:01<weasel>it may be that. but it's also a user attitude problem.

19:09<tcsetattr>well, the question was originally "why did Debian choose man-db over the other one?" to which nobody really had anything to say, so it turned into this.
19:10<tcsetattr>or rather "why doesn't Debian package both man and man-db and let me choose, like it does with so many other things that have competing alternatives?"

19:26<tcsetattr>that would be /etc/init.d/acct, which ... basically calls accton for you. There's no harm in turning that off. It just means the logging won't be done, so you can't use lastcomm or sa anymore.
19:27<weasel>why do you have it installed anyway?
19:28<tcsetattr>go ahead an run "lastcomm | less" and if you don't think it's really cool and want to keep it, kick it to the dpkg --purge

21:54<bja>do you have various partitions or do you have one single big one?

21:58<kop>Silicium01: The partition should not be mounted.
21:58<Silicium01>kop, will doing this and installing other os on newly freed unpartitioned space mees up grub?
21:58<kop>Silicium01: No. But if "other os" is Microsoft, installation will tend to destroy everything on the drive.

22:12<VTommy>the installation that was done was in console, no xwindows or x11 or xserver was installed

22:14<VTommy>it will use firefox to access internet that's about it
22:14<kop>VTommy: You'll want x11vnc, or make your xdm/gdm/kdm publicly available. But you probably want to tunnel the traffic through something secure, right?
22:15-!-Texou [] has quit [Quit: ++]
22:15<VTommy>yes if possible with ssh or some sort of security
22:15<kop>VTommy: The just install firefox (or iceweasel) and do 'ssh -X iceweasel' and it'll run.
22:15<kop>VTommy: You'll see it on your local X display.
22:16<VTommy>kop: where do i go about if i have no linux box at my location now
22:16<VTommy>kop: do i need to have access to gnome already
22:16<Silicium01>kop, does he need xserver onremote machine for that?
22:16<kop>VTommy: (Or maybe it's ssh -Y, I forget....)
22:16<kop>Silicium01: No, just the client.
22:16-!-Athunye [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
22:16<VTommy>can i use putty to do that
22:16<kop>Silicium01: The server needs to be local.
22:17<kop>VTommy: You're using MS Windows?
22:17<VTommy>kop: yes for computer that i have now
22:17<VTommy>only server is debian
22:17<Silicium01>kop, client on remote machine?
22:17<kop>Silicium01: That's X. The server drives the equipment, which you are sitting in front of.
22:18<kop>VTommy: You need an X server for your local box. I don't know what's recommended for Windows. I'm sure there's a free one out there. I know cygwin would work, but I'm pretty sure it's overkill.

22:18<VTommy>kop: would it be easier to have linux on the computer i'm on?
22:19<kop>VTommy: Dunno. If you had Linux already it'd sure be easier.
22:19<VTommy>kop: ok give me a sec :-)
22:20<VTommy>kop: my router is a linux debian server and it has a gnome installed
22:23-!-sxx [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
22:23<kop>VTommy: You probably want 'ssh -Y' not -X.

22:29<VTommy>ok i got access to the linux box at home
22:30<VTommy>now just do ssh-Y to that box?

22:30<VTommy>saying firefox not found
22:32-!-tuxwarrior [~tuxwarrio@] has joined #debian
22:32<kop>VTommy: You first need to ssh into the box and install firefox. I'd recommend installing iceweasel instead because it's a simple: aptitude install iceweasel
22:33<kop>!tell VTommy -about iceweasel
22:34<VTommy>ok i installed it iceweasel
22:34<kop>VTommy: Ok, with ssh -Y it should work.
22:35<VTommy>so now that app is running on the server?
22:35<kop>VTommy: Yes.
22:35<VTommy>that was easy
22:35<kop>VTommy: You could have avoided this by, say running links or links or another text based browser.
22:36<VTommy>but those are text based i needed graphics based
22:37<kop>VTommy: I belive I've heard good things about w3m. Ok.
22:37-!-muammar [~muammar@] has quit [Quit: imagine a big red swirl here..!]
22:37<kop>VTommy: Another text browser.
22:38<VTommy>have access to graphics?
22:38<VTommy>i need graphics
22:38<kop>VTommy: Probably not. Did you see the link to xmins for your MS Windows box? You'd need to do something gui-esque with putty instead of a simple -Y though.

22:40<VTommy>can putty support it? i'm using remote desktop on my linux box
22:40<VTommy>and it's working ok there
22:41<kop>VTommy: I'd guess so. For a more remote-desktop ish experience you want x11vnc, or some sort of vpn tunnel, whether openvpn or ssh or something else, and a xdm/gdm/kdm configured to allow remote access.
22:41<kop>VTommy: Generally to export the full desktop you want to add encryption.
22:41<VTommy>kop: well i like the option of just opening up the software i need with ssh
22:42<kop>VTommy: That's what it's for. :)
22:42<VTommy>kop: that is all i need is to run a web browser remotely from that server box
22:43<kop>VTommy: Why? Out of curiousity.

23:10<jorzo>i would like to scan a .wav file for periods where the sound is less than a certain amplitude and force those periods to silence. What's a good tool for that?
23:13<kop>jorzo: audacity is the only audio editor I know. You could 'aptitude search ~Gaudio' for others. Which does not answer your question....
23:13<drakeman>hey guys good evening, i have debian testing, i downloaded xfce4 and xfce4-goodies using aptitude, now how i set xfce4 as default session and window manager? when i enter i still see gnome!
23:14<kop>drakeman: If you're using gdm to login I think there's an option on the login screen. Unless you need to set login screen preferences. Dunno.
23:14<Gun_Smoke>drakeman, at the gdm screen.
23:15<drakeman>kop, and Gun_Smoke i set in the gdm login window xfce session as default but when i login i see gnome!
23:15<Gun_Smoke>drakeman, It's called actions I think. Pick xfce, it will then ask if you want it to become the default,or just for this session.
23:15<drakeman>let me try it again
23:15<drakeman>be back.
