01:07<jerryclunsford>how do you configure gnome terminal to connect to a cisco router?
01:08<Benmtl>kenyon: main problem is debian can ping google but clients which is connected to network cannot
01:08-!-sunny is now known as lchh
01:08<PovAddict>Benmtl: you'd need to set up rounting
01:08<PovAddict>so clients in network go through the debian machine which routes from local interface to wan
01:08<jerryclunsford>well I'm using a cisco console cable out of the seriel port
01:09<kenyon>Benmtl: you can't just plug wires in and expect your machine to work as a router
01:09<Benmtl>so how can i do that, clients are working under 192.168.1.x , debian connected to adsl

01:10<Benmtl>1 is (connected to ADSL modem)
01:10<Benmtl>2nd interface is connected to switch going to network
01:10<PovAddict>10.x.x.x is usable for local networks
01:11<PovAddict>to have you'd have to own that IP block
01:11<sney>jerryclunsford: kermit?
01:12<jerryclunsford>sney don't know what kermit is
01:12<kenyon> is IANA reserved
01:12<sney>aptitude show kermit
01:12<sney>or maybe it's called ckermit now
01:13<sney>anyway, it's a program for serial consoles.
01:14<jerryclunsford>I suppose I could aptitude install kermit or ckermit?
01:14<kenyon>!info ckermit
01:14<jerryclunsford>aptitude didn't find the pakage

01:15<kenyon>that's right
01:15<PovAddict>I wouldn't believe there is no free software to talk to a serial console
01:15<sney>it used to be free

01:40<slashme>How do I install the squeeze version of the sun jre package?

01:42<slashme>dpkg how do I install a squeeze package in lenny?
01:42<dpkg>i don't know, slashme
01:42<faheem>slashme: is there a backport?
01:43<faheem>or can you build one?
01:43<slashme>faheem, I guess I should check ;-]
01:43<slashme>I tried building with make-jpkg, but it didn't work, and I've been told that it's not supposed to be used any more.
01:44<faheem>slashme: no, you could just build the debian sources in the usual way
01:45<faheem>apt-get build-dep ..., debuild binary
01:45<faheem>from a quick glance at the dependencies, it will probably work
01:45<faheem>build dependencies i mean

01:46<slashme>OK, I'll first try a prebuilt backport, and if that doesn't work, I'll build one. Thanks!
01:52<slashme>Hmm, Sun java is not yet in lenny-backports. Let's see about that building option.

02:00<slashme>faheem, I've never built a package from source, and this one seems to be less than straightforward: I've downloaded the sun jre (jre-6u16-linux-i586.bin). There are two packages in squeeze that seem relevant: sun-java6-jre and sun-java6-bin. I think I now have the binary part, but where can I find instructions on how to build the debian package?

02:10<Merlin>What does sudo sshd-generate do?
02:13<slashme>Well sudo runs a command as root...
02:14<slashme>and I'm googling sshd-generate as I speak.
02:14-!-hw [~hw@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:14<slashme>Ah, right, it generates a public and private key pair.
02:15-!-Tyrant [] has joined #debian

02:16<slashme>Not sure what the difference is from ssh-keygen or whatever it's called.
02:16-!-pos [] has joined #debian
02:17<Merlin><clone> Your identification has been saved in /etc/ssh/ssh_host_key.
02:17<Merlin><clone> Your public key has been saved in /etc/ssh/
02:17<Merlin><clone> The key fingerprint is:
02:17-!-Wyzard [] has joined #debian
02:18<Merlin>What some guy said. But what is it?
02:18<slashme>Ah, right, I get it. You run ssh-keygen for yourself, to create keys to authenticate yourself as a user. This is used by ssh (the secure shell login client). sshd-generate (note the "d") is used by the sshd server to make a key pair.
02:18<slashme>When you install sshd, it normally gets done for you.
02:19-!-steffan is now known as steffan_
02:19-!-steffan_ is now known as steffan
02:19<slashme>or at least that's what I seem to recall. I might be wrong.
02:20<Merlin>So keys are used to make sure that it is 'your computer' accessing the OS not someone else?
02:22<slashme>Actually, ssh is usually used between computers.
02:22<Merlin>oh What do keys do then?
02:22<slashme>but I'm not sure what the server generates keys for. When I log into my box remotely using ssh, I present my public key, and encrypt with my private key.
02:23<slashme>The server can then decrypt using my public key.
02:23<slashme>This proves that the connection comes from me.
02:23<slashme>Wait, I got that wrong.
02:23<slashme>Ah, right.
02:23<slashme>This is burning my head a bit, hang on....
02:23<slashme>I have to encrypt using the server's public key.
02:23<slashme>The server can then decrypt using its private key.
02:23-!-sney [] has quit [Quit: I don't think I'm better than you. I just want to share my thoughts]
02:24<slashme>That's why the server needs keys.
02:24-!-narcan [] has joined #debian
02:24<slashme>I can authenticate myself to the server by signing the login with my private key. The server can then use my public key to confirm that it's me talking.

02:26<slashme>I also have an authorised-keys file, which contains the following:
02:26<slashme>ssh-rsa [string of highly secret characters] == slashme@slashmelaptop
02:27<steffan>slashme: what are you trying to do? just passwordless authentication using ssh keys?
02:27<slashme>Then when I ssh into my desktop machine from my laptop, sshd looks to see whether I'm authorised by looking in the authorised-keys file.
02:27<slashme>steffan: I'm explaining to Merlin how I manage to log in using ssh keys.
02:28<slashme>He was asking about what sshd-generate does, which led me to this explanation.
02:28<Merlin>Which I don't understand haha
02:28<steffan>!tell Merlin -about ssh keys

02:42-!-smhar_ [~salman@] has joined #debian
02:42<Merlin>Oh nope.
02:43<Merlin>https:// are used SSL? Is SSL essential just passwords and encryptions?
02:44<Merlin>encryptions not passwords
02:44-!-drakeman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:45<slashme>ssl == "secure socket layer", i.e. encrypted communication over network sockets.
02:45<slashme>Typically, websites that do e-commerce or need a password for some reason will use ssl to communicate with your browser.
02:47<Merlin>Forum sites use SSL?
02:48<slashme>Some of them.

02:51<tony_>Hi, is there any sparc guys about ?
02:52<sney>ex-sparc guy
02:53<tony_>cool :)
02:53<tony_>did a net install on an E250
02:53<tony_>all good
02:53<tony_>the xserver came up a bit small
02:54<tony_>so thought I would poke about a bit
02:54<tony_>open up a terminal window
02:54<tony_>cd /dev
02:55<tony_>and nothing
02:55<tony_>ls -l
02:55<tony_>gives all the data minus file names
02:55<tony_>ls -a
02:55<tony_>shows 1 dot file
02:56<tony_>that what I thought
02:56<sney>check the bts for udev. when I say ex-sparc guy I mean I'm 3 years behind the curve, I can't really troubleshoot new issues
02:56<tony_>the gui sees the files in dev OK
02:56<sney>also, even with established stuff like Ultrasparc II you're going to get wonky issues since there are fewer people supporting the arch

02:57<sney>sparc is a different cpu architecture
02:58<sney>it is mostly found in computers made by Sun Microsystems

03:36<eeeuser>Slashme, I'm running squeeze.
03:36<slashme>Luffy1980 Absolutely true.
03:36<slashme>eeeuser sorry!!!
03:36<sney>there is #debian-eeepc for eee-specific questions, but as long as he's running debian it's relevant here as well
03:37<sney>eeeuser: do you have eeepc-acpi-scripts installed?
03:37-!-frontrank [~live@] has joined #debian
03:37<eeeuser>Yeah. IT was all working fine until I did an upgrade to 2.6.30-2. I tried booting the other kernel, with the same results.
03:37-!-KingKong2009 [] has joined #debian
03:38<eeeuser>By other I mean 2.6.30-1
03:38<Luffy1980>slashme: well, if I don't read any news about this before, I'll wait for 1 or 2 days before doing an update.
03:38<slashme>eeeuser do you have /proc/acpi at all?
03:38<sney>eeeuser: well go to #debian-eeepc and say what you did and what happened, and synrg or somebody will respond eventually
03:39<frontrank>im using lenny, but now i wanted to pinnig squeeze. I've added squeeze repos but now im getting this error while apt-get update:
03:39<slashme>frontrank it's happening to everyone.
03:39<eeeuser>righto. I'm not convinced that it is eee-specific, but it might be. Shouldn't the module be creating the appropriate entries in /proc?
03:39<slashme>Not about the pinning.
03:39<frontrank>thanks slashme
03:40<KingKong2009>Hello, how do I uninstall a corrupt extension from IceWeasel?

03:42<eeeuser>shutdown firefox entirely, then run "rm -rf ~/.mozilla" at a terminal
03:43<KingKong2009>eeeuser, I tried renaming that dir but problem still exist
03:43<eeeuser>then there is still a firefox process running

09:23<boknoy>hi guys, how do I put an entry in resolv.conf?
09:23<cahoot>with an editor (as root)
09:24<boknoy>yeah, but it's autogenerated, so anything I do gets overwritten every reboot
09:24<jkoenig>or maybe not directly, if the resolvconf package is installed
09:24<boknoy>jkoenig, how does resolvconf work? why does it need me to specify an interface?
09:25<dpkg>To fix your /etc/resolv.conf: edit /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf to include the nameservers you want to use (ask me about <override dns>). Alternatively, use <resolvconf> and specify the nameservers yourself: echo -e "nameserver a.b.c.d\nnameserver w.x.y.z" > /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/base; resolvconf -u (where a.b.c.d and w.x.y.z are your ISPs nameservers). Also ask me about <fixresolvconf the ugly way>.
09:25<jkoenig>boknoy: you can read the manual pages referenced by the autogenerated file for more information, but have a look in /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/

10:59<Gun_Smoke>Bad form with urgency and testing/unstable imo..
11:00<minino>but ill try by hand with synaptic, and if not I will reinstall everything and leave lenny Gun_Smoke
11:00<Gun_Smoke>minino, not necessary. If you must, skip squeeze and install sid.

11:03<Scurz>no idea please ?
11:04<Gun_Smoke>You'll want to look for debootstrap

11:14<antgel>hi all. the nvidia-kernel-source package in lenny is too old to build with my 2.6.30 kernel from backports. so i'd like to install the latest nvidia drivers without just running their script and potentially overwriting apt-managed files.
11:14<antgel>anyone have a clue how i can build a .deb from the nvidia .run?
11:14<dpkg>To use an NVIDIA graphics card with Debian, see If you've done it before, asking me about <nvidia pre-built> or <nvidia m-a> might work. Installing directly from (i.e. with <nvidia-installer>) is _not_ supported in #debian, please go to #nvidia ( Ask me about <nvidia squeeze>.
11:15<flo>antgel: i don't use the repository
11:15<antgel>dr|z3d: did you read my actual question or was that a twitch? the wiki is about installing from the nvidia-kernel-source package
11:15<antgel>flo: tell me more
11:15<flo>i hav downloaded the driver from nvidia
11:16<flo>install gcc and make
11:16<flo>and run the file
11:16-!-hierax [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
11:16<flo>it's easy
11:16<flo>i don't like the contrib repository :p
11:17<antgel>flo: but i'd rather have a .deb that i could manage via apt

11:18<flo>with this mind you can have the latest driver 190.**
11:18<flo>scuse for my bad english :p
11:18<antgel>yes, that's what i want, i just don't want it trampling all over my system
11:19-!-eugenio [~eugenio@] has joined #debian
11:19<flo>you have this prob because in the backport the .deb is compiled for the last kernel
11:19<antgel>yes, i know that
11:19-!-abrotman [] has joined #debian
11:20-!-eugenio [~eugenio@] has left #debian []
11:20<flo>in all case you must compiled the driver for your kernel
11:20<flo>or upgrade your kernel
11:20<antgel>i'll have a look at the nvidia-graphics-drivers source package and see how it works
11:20<antgel>flo: i know all that, that's the point of my question
11:21*abrotman waves at antgel
11:21<locklace><abrotman> nt pattern matches my left testicle
11:21<antgel>hmm, i wonder if i could try backporting the 185.18.36 from unstable
11:21<locklace>that earned you a beer
11:21-!-|kardan| [] has joined #debian
11:21<abrotman>locklace: i'm sure there is context missing

11:22<abrotman>locklace: yeah .. i'm in there a few times i think
11:23<antgel>otherwise i'm well aware that i can run their script
11:23<antgel>and let it trample away
11:23*antgel pukes
11:23<Gold24>antgel: you can make your own deb quite easily using module-assistant
11:24<Gold24>ah actually i see your problem
11:24<antgel>Gold24: yes, i want to make a nvidia-kernel-source .deb :)

12:43<PovAddict>glxgears is not a benchmark
12:43<azeem>goodger: glxinfo | grep direct confirms that DRI is active?

12:44<PovAddict>for that simple app

12:44<goodger>PovAddict: actually it's a fairly simple benchmark since it was running at about 40fps with software rendering

12:44<azeem>goodger: get a x40 :)
12:45<goodger>I'll assume that's general advice as opposed to your solution to this problem
12:45<azeem>well, the x40 has an intel chip
12:45<abrotman>goodger: did you try with no xorg.conf at all ?

13:26<Lillymon>Ugh, I'm still stuck without sound here. I've got ALSA 1.0.21, but the system reports it as ALSA 1.0.20, and the system acts as if it's ALSA 1.0.20 (i.e. doesn't detect my SB X-Fi). No one knows when this will be fixed (it's a bug, it's definitely a bug), no one's suggested a credible workaround, and my system is still broken.

13:36<Erlkoenig>Hi, i'm trying to install gpe on a pda running debian etch. as explained on there are packages for gpe in the "unstable" feed. So i appended "unstable" to the first line in /etc/apt/sources.list (it's "deb etch main unstable" now), and ran "apt-get update" (getting some errors), and ran "apt-get install gpe", but it just reported errors, too:
13:37<PovAddict>it has a checkbox labeled "eliminate lag"
13:37<PovAddict>and that's mostly it
13:37<PovAddict>I'm not sure how the hell it will guess what traffic should get priority

I can ping out to the internet to known IP's just fine, but it won't work if i try to ping something by name. I have network scripts that are failing because they can't find thier hosts. the only thing that i can think that changed recently was i upgraded it from etch to lenny.

14:23<Erlkoenig>LostPlanet: try "dig", this shows you verbosely what's going on during name resolving
14:24<LostPlanet>Erlkoenig: after typing in the command it hangs .
14:24<LostPlanet>i'll let it go for a bit
14:24<cahoot>check your resolv.conf
14:24<LostPlanet>connection timed out; no servers could be reached
14:24<Erlkoenig>yes, it needs some time
14:24<Erlkoenig>nothing more?
14:24<Erlkoenig>well, then, exactly, check your /etc/resolv.conf
14:24<LostPlanet>that's pretty much it
14:24-!-midlis [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
14:24<LostPlanet>the /etc/resolv.conf is empty besidees comments at the top that say do not edit this file
14:25<Erlkoenig>okay, you have to write into it "nameserver" or something, the IP being the IP of your DNS-Server
14:25<LostPlanet>why would this have stopped working though ?
14:25<Erlkoenig>e.g. if you have a DSL Router, the IP of your Router
14:25<dpkg>To fix your /etc/resolv.conf: edit /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf to include the nameservers you want to use (ask me about <override dns>). Alternatively, use <resolvconf> and specify the nameservers yourself: echo -e "nameserver a.b.c.d\nnameserver w.x.y.z" > /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/base; resolvconf -u (where a.b.c.d and w.x.y.z are your ISPs nameservers). Also ask me about <fixresolvconf the ugly way>.
14:25<Erlkoenig>maybe the update emptied the file?
14:25<LostPlanet>yea..hence i should not put the change in the file because it may get removed later. thanks for that cahoot

16:44<almond-tree>hi there anybody there is a UBUNTU user?
16:44<dpkg>Ubuntu is based on Debian, but it is not Debian, and it is unlikely to live up to Debian's standards (see <Debian policy>). Only Debian is supported on #debian. Use #ubuntu ( instead. Even if the channel happens to be less helpful, support for distributions other than Debian is offtopic on #debian. See also <based on debian>.
16:44<Lillymon>I used to be, but why are you asking about Ubuntu here?
16:44-!-davromaniak [] has joined #debian
16:45<almond-tree>well.. this is the only source I could find to solve an urgent problem I'm facing.
16:45<Lillymon>I do sympathize, #ubuntu can be unhelpful, though I doubt you'll get much help here.
16:46<almond-tree>I've updated to ubuntu 9.10 and this made my old kernel disappear.
16:46<abrotman>almond-tree: ask #ubuntu on

17:15<dpkg>Ubuntu is based on Debian, but it is not Debian, and it is unlikely to live up to Debian's standards (see <Debian policy>). Only Debian is supported on #debian. Use #ubuntu ( instead. Even if the channel happens to be less helpful, support for distributions other than Debian is offtopic on #debian. See also <based on debian>.

19:43<dpkg>The Debian installer comes in many forms (CD1, netinst, business card, DVD), but the installer you use and the system you end up with is identical in each case. The only difference is when the packages are downloaded: if you grab the DVDs then you are downloading lots of packages that you might not need; if you download the netinst, then when you go to install packages using aptitude later on, they will be downloaded at that time.

19:47<dbldtx>JuNiX; you can do netinstall which comes with gnome installed by default - and then from there get whatever you want - it's a "minimal" install before you add everything else you want on your system (via apt-get [CLI] or aptitude [GUI]) but it fits on only one CD, and it looks like you've got internet.

20:53<twb>I have a server with three disks in an md RAID-5.
20:54<twb>I'm trying to get smartd to talk to them.
20:54<twb>They're SATA, so I added "-a -d sat" to the DEVICESCAN entry in smartd.conf, but it still won't see them:
20:54<twb>smartd[19760]: Device: /dev/sda, not ATA, no IDENTIFY DEVICE Structure
20:55-!-goodger [] has joined #debian
20:55<twb>IIRC this is because this host has a RAID5-less hardware RAID controller (sigh, IBM), and to get md RAID5 the disks were configured as three one-disk RAID0 arrays in the hardware RAID controller.
20:56<twb>How can I 1) confirm that this is the case; and/or 2) trick smartd into doing its job?
20:58<jmarsden>twb: If the disks are behind a non-standard controller, smartd is unlikely to "see" them in a useful (to it) way. You can probably find a controller-specific utility that will show you the 3 RAID0 arrays and their health. Is the controller listed in and if so, what utility does it suggest there?
20:59<twb>jmarsden: thanks, looking
21:00<twb>Hmm, will lshw tell me what the hw raid controller is?
21:00<twb>The box is in another state, and the monkeys on site won't be able to help.

21:11<kop>redmaw: Your new disk has become sda, replacing the old disk which was sda. There are a number of ways to fix this.
21:11-!-Electric1lf [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:12<dpkg>Labels can be set on some filesystems, enabling referencing via LABEL=foo in <fstab>. To set: Ext{2,3,4}: e2label /dev/{s,h}dXX foo (16 char limit); XFS: xfs_admin -L foo /dev/{s,h}dXX (12 char limit); FAT{16,32}: dosfslabel /dev/{s,h}dXX foo (11 char limit); NTFS: ntfslabel /dev/{s,h}dXX foo (128 char limit); ReiserFS: reiserfstune -l foo /dev/{s,h}dXX (16 char limit). To mount: mount -L foo dir. See also <uuid>.
21:12<dpkg>[uuid] Universally Unique IDentifier, used to reference disk partitions (among other things). See currently known partition UUIDs with `blkid'. In /etc/fstab and /boot/grub/menu.lst, use "UUID=dead-beef-0420-etc" as the partition name. Helps to cope with device name changes such as hda->sda (libata transition) or changes in USB disk order discovery. <LVM> tools accept PV/VG/LV UUIDs as arguments, use {pv,vg,lv}display to acquire.
21:14<abrotman>kop: try using the tell feature
21:14<redmaw>if I want to change which hdd it boots from I just change the line in grub from (hd0,0) to (hd1,0) right?
21:15<kop>abrotman: Allrightie. (It seemed a bit dead here and I figured it wouldn't hurt....)
21:15<kop>redmaw: Yes. But that's just where the boot loader gets it's config from.

22:16<twb>kop: $otheridiot was just doing mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1, sigh
22:17<twb>So assuming udev will create by-label (which is reasonable), all I need to find out is how to create NTFS labels on Windows.
22:17<cassetout><twb> Why don't I have a by-label? -> you can use /lib/udev/vol_id --label /dev/xxxx

22:32<twb>The restore part is done by them plugging the removable HDD back into their windows box
22:32<twb>It's only backing up their /home's, see.
22:33<twb>And this hardware all sits in their office, so they know that the hardware is theirs
22:33<kop>twb: The pertelian device is lame in that it has no manufactuer/serial number so cannot be configured to auto-identify and just work in udev rules that can be part of the udev package. :-P
22:34<kop>twb: So, the backup device backups up only a single hd, and when presented with an empty one does a restore?
22:35<twb>Basically the backup device has a cron job that says "mount /dev/sda1 and make a snapshot of /home on it, if it's an NTFS filesystem with a magic filename in its root directory"
22:35<twb>Restores are done on the windows machine -- as far as the cron job is concerned, this is a WMRN backup

22:52<bird>holle can you help me ? when i boot-strap the kmix is muted . why ?
22:53<Merlin>When I installed Ubuntu I made swap, /, and /home in an extended partition. When I install Debian, I would again want to make a / and /home but use the same swap.

22:55-!-emonge [~emonge@] has joined #debian
22:55<abrotman>Merlin: yes, you can do that
22:55<PovAddict>nothing stopping you :)
22:55<PovAddict>you'll just have six partitions
22:56<PovAddict>and since the limit of primary partitions is 4, you'll have to use extended partitions
22:56<abrotman>maybe he has more than one HDD
22:56<Merlin>only 1
22:56<Merlin>So you can have more than 1 extended partition?
22:57<PovAddict>you seem to only need one
22:57<Merlin>Use 1 extended partition for both Ubuntu and Debian?
22:57<PovAddict>what are you calling an 'extended partition'?
22:58<ehren>anyone know why debian is not recognizing the daylight savings time rollback as of this sunday (last night) at 2am. I'm in the toronto timezone... this is reported correctly in /etc/timezone ... have tried dpkg-reconfigure tzdata ... this seems to happen every time there's a switch over btw
22:58<PovAddict>as I understand it, the way it works is that there are four "slots" in a partition table, where you'd normally put four partitions
22:59<PovAddict>but in those slots you can also put a new partition table, in which you can put four other partitions (extended)
22:59<PovAddict>so if in the 4th slot you put an extended partition table instead of a primary partition, your limit is 7
23:00<Merlin>There is Vista OS, Vista recovery partition, Ubuntu (swap, / and /home) and I want to now add Debian. So just go through the partition editor. Create a root and /home (both logical) and just mount swap?
23:00<PovAddict>but *I think* nothing stops you from putting extended partitions in all four primary partitions slots
23:01<PovAddict>giving you the ability to put 16 partitions on the disk
23:04-!-jcwu [] has joined #debian
23:05<Merlin>Quote: "Extended partitions allow for multiple "logical" drives. You can have up to 24 drives in your extended partition (26 letters of the alphabet but A and B are reserved for floppy drives). Although Win2000 will allow even more drives due to volume naming that does not require drive letters."
23:05<Merlin>Quote: "Extended partitions are NOT bootable. Therefore you cannot put an OS on it. If you want, you can format a drive to be ALL extended and thus have no operating system on it at all. This presumes that you have another HD that does have an OS on it!"
23:06<Merlin>However, when I installed Ubuntu I made both root and /home logical partitions. It works fine??
23:07<PovAddict>well that's because of the real meaning of 'bootable'
23:07<PovAddict>I think it just means your BIOS can boot from it
23:07<PovAddict>so maybe only the partition containing the bootloader (grub?) needs to be 'bootable', and grub can then happily boot Ubuntu from anywhere
23:09<Merlin>Windows says all the partitions are bootable. However this is understandable since it doesn't read ext3 partitons
