00:00<xanavi>backtrack install, schweet
00:00<xanavi>its a pretty decent base for a basic debian install
00:00<Gaartboom>no vnc at this moment, butt you couls use putty
00:01<venger>Gaartboom, are you just talking about the panel items ie Applications, Places, System, etc not responding?
00:01<Gaartboom>yes indeed,
00:01<venger>have you tried killall gnome-panel

00:05<Gaartboom>I just did it now, the killall gnome-panel. no change.
00:06<Gaartboom>i gues to see if there was something hanging
00:07-!-g-ram [] has joined #debian
00:07<Gaartboom>is it possible that xserver brings the problem? because my xserver don't work

00:10<sney>!doesn't work
00:10<dpkg>Look buddy, "doesn't work" is a vague statement. Does it sit on the couch all day long? Does it procrastinate doing the dishes? Does it beg on the street for change? Please be specific! Define 'it' and what it isn't doing. Give us more details so we can help you without needing to ask basic questions like "what's the error message?". Ask me about <smart questions> and <errors>.
00:10-!-xanavi [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:11-!-chitchat [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:11<vadim>i like debian
00:12<sney>me too
00:12<Gaartboom>No error messages, when i hover to one of those top menu items, its like just an image. It don't react at all. none of the bar's react. every
00:13<sney>Gaartboom: still no reason to believe it's an X issue. you've said your xserver "doesn't work" a few times already but with no supporting evidence other than some gnome issues. Have you tried another (non-GTK) window manager to see if it could be caused by gnome or gtk?
00:13-!-gerzel [] has joined #debian
00:14<Gaartboom>no, its a fresh install, and don't want to bloat it more. I use gdm with gnome
00:14<vadim>Is it possible to organize translation of messages in xchat to another language on the fly?
00:15<KingKong2009>Had a play around with rsnapshot, rdiff-backup and duplicity, I have chosen rdiff-backup as my backup solution
00:15<Gaartboom>could i generate a log that would be usefull for you?
00:16<goodger>vadim: it would be relatively trivial to write an xchat plugin to do that, but it would be very slow indeed
00:17<goodger>well, I say relatively trivial assuming that google translate has a python API
00:17-!-Texou [] has quit [Quit: ++]
00:18<vadim>Thank you for your reply.
00:18<vadim>My English is too bad so I am looking for the solution
00:18-!-Binomyo [] has joined #debian
00:19<faheem>vadim: what locale are you using?
00:21<vadim>in the sense?
00:21-!-DarkPurpose [~jeff@] has quit [Quit: Connection reset by pheer]
00:22<Gaartboom>the xserver fault i have, is this one look :
00:23-!-yuri_i [] has joined #debian
00:24<Gaartboom>and this would be the fix look:
00:24<yuri_i>Anyone know where debian keeps the global configuration for dircolors? /etc/DIR_COLORS does not exist and I see no options being set in /etc/bash.bashrc
00:25<faheem>vadim: my understanding is that if you set your locales appropriately, the messages you see may be translated. what is your language/location?
00:26<venger>Gaartboom, if the xserver failed to start you would not be able to use gnome, so are you working two different issues? you can always use pastebin to provide logs or some evidence as to why you think this is your problem
00:28<faheem>vadim: see
00:28<vadim>I live in Ukraine.
00:28<vadim>Avail speak Ukrainian (native) and Russian
00:29<venger>or [file|image]bin for screenshots

00:30<faheem>vadim: i assume setting your locale to something suitable would help. anyone feel like clarifying
00:30<faheem>you could talk to people in a russian channel
00:30<dpkg>Russian speakers, please use (Pogalujsta, zajdite na) (Pazhaluista, zahodite na) #debian-russian @

00:33<faheem>yuri_i: to answer your question, dircolors -b outputs the value
00:33<faheem>it is not set in a file
00:33<faheem>as you can see in your .bashrc
00:34<vadim>en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8
00:34<faheem>ie eval "`dircolors -b`"
00:34<faheem>vadim: right. that is not going to help you. again, consider changing your locale
00:34-!-bodhi_ [~bodhi@] has quit []
00:35<faheem>talking to the people in a russian channel will probably be helpful
00:37<Gaartboom>venger: my xserver gives a fatal error look at:
00:37<vadim>for me it is difficult

00:46<Gaartboom>ok I found out that I can't start a gui-application as root. I get this error: Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :1006.0
00:47-!-ludvig [] has joined #debian

00:47<vadim>I want this to using it.

00:48-!-LoRez [] has joined #debian
00:48<Gaartboom>faheem: thank you i will try this.
00:49<faheem>the point if that root does not own your display, so you need to give it some kind of permission (i think)
00:49<faheem>i forget the details
00:49<faheem>that's the users .bashrc, not roots
00:49<faheem>can anyone give a more precise description?

01:05<faheem>assuming you have saved it in a file
01:06-!-leo [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:07<sney>the 'sux' command has the ability to let the superuser start X applications
01:07<sney>it's not sudo, but you can sudo sux
01:09<Gaartboom>sney: I did a reboot and see that i need tho put the fix again. How can i make this persistent?
01:09<sney>I just told you

01:30<leo>is it possible to copy openjdk-6-jre downloaded in lenny onto squeeze?
01:34<leo>i guess no because it has lenny2_ in the name

01:40<dbldtx>IRSSI for the win! I just discovered how to be on multiple IRC servers using the same window... Meat and potatoes: What would be the best way to go about submitting an OpenOffice3 bug involving opening .xls?
01:40<faheem>leo: yikes. why don't you just install openjdk-6-jre from sqeeze?
01:41<faheem>dbldtx: cool. want to share?
01:41<leo>i suppose i could just means downloading 40 mb which i just downloaded last night
01:41<faheem>dbldtx: if it is an upstream bug, then find the oo bug tracker i guess
01:42<leo>just wanted to know if it's the same files in the same locations
01:42<faheem>leo: hard to tell.

01:47<dbldtx>Okay, so I tried it again without anything running and was able to recreate the bug.
01:49<dbldtx>Does anybody know how to make a .xls require repairing prior to opening? The crash I'm getting kills everything and spits me out to my xdm login (apparently this isn't supposed to happen in Linux, especially if you're running LAMP or something mission critical)?
01:49-!-dr|zed [~dr|] has joined #debian
01:50<dbldtx>I tried to open a .xls and it required repairing. Instead of hitting cancel or repair file, I left it pending and attempted to then open a SECOND .xls that I know required repairing... I thought I would just click [repair][repair] and they'd both open... but that first pending one was too much for the second to handle?
01:50<dbldtx>Anyway, I rebooted and then tried, with nothing (almost nothing, at least) running, to open both at the same time. CRASH without even the pending...
01:50<dbldtx>So then I log back in and open one... click repair, and it's open.
01:51<dbldtx>Open the second, click repair, and it's also open. Is this a bug? Debian Squeeze Open Office 3
01:51-!-diego [~diego@] has joined #debian
01:52<diego>hi, I'm looking for a graphical ide that does "diff -r dir1 dir2" or a console one that shows estimated time left

01:53<dbldtx>Looks like he got bored with the channel.

02:16<dbldtx>simonrvn; understood. I am sorry - I did not paste though, it was an afterthought which provided more information relevant to the topic; information about the file that was producing the error. I know about paste.
02:16<simonrvn>dbldtx: no, put the file up at a file sharing site
02:17<simonrvn>dbldtx: or a web site you can put it up to easily
02:17<dbldtx>simonrvn; sensitive data and is no longer in disrepair. I'm currently reading about it and trying to figure out how to make a file need "repairing" -- I get you now, thought you were just being a dick but I understand.
02:18<simonrvn>@ the being a dick
02:18<simonrvn>dbldtx: mm ok. 'cause i do have ooo 3 installed
02:18<dbldtx>:) Yes, I am working on it but other things taking my time at the present... will file this and bring it back up when I have the facts if need be.

02:21<simonrvn>dbldtx: i *was* a bit hard you before with the non-sequitur stuff..
02:22<dbldtx>simonrvn; It's sane now, I'm editing it just fine - opened it three times earlier today and only once of those it needed repairing... the bug arose when I tried to open it's sister-file which needed repairing also, when the first REPAIR FILE? option was still pending.

06:01<Nemoder>grr why does udev set /def/fuse ownership to root:root
06:02<Gathond>Nemoder: becaus that is the default and you have not told it to do otherwise?
06:02-!-kutio [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
06:02<Nemoder>I thought it used to be root:fuse
06:02<Gathond>I can't actually remember at the moment where it is you tell it differently though:)
06:03-!-achury [] has left #debian []
06:03<Nemoder>I know where I just don't know how, udev rules and docs are really confusing
06:03<Gathond>actually it may remember it
06:03<Gathond>so if you just change it manually then restart I think the permissions may be kept

11:51<patrikf>MSameer: at least on some systems, you can disable the system speaker using alsamixer. I'm not entirely sure how that works concept-wise, but you might check that.
11:52<MSameer>but I want to enable it not to disable it
11:52<MSameer>I can't live without it
11:52<MSameer>sort of :)
11:52<patrikf>MSameer: I mean that it might be disabled through alsa.

14:10<faheem>might be a routing issue
14:11<weasel>bighornram: have you verified that reportbug sends mail using your MTA?
14:11<faheem>like your return headers are screwed up. but should get to exim regardless
14:11<bighornram>weasel: that is what I think the issue might be. how can i check that?
14:12<weasel>as I told you, I don't know reportbug. why don't you just avoid it?
14:12<faheem>weasel: what else could it be trying to use?

14:12<faheem>also it includes necessary info for packagers

14:55<faheem>bighornram: weird. sounds like a bug
14:56<faheem>did you report the reportbug issue?
14:56<Lethalman>faheem, looks like it changed the smtp configuration to me
14:56<Lethalman>usually "send report" in the gtk interface falls back to the reportbug engine to send email, doesn't change between text and gtk
14:56<faheem>bighornram: with no input from you? that really sounds funny
14:56<bighornram>Lethalman: I ran reportbug --configure and it went through the setup questions again, I changed to text instead of gtk2
14:57<Lethalman>bighornram, ok could you do what I said please?

15:22<Lethalman>faheem, the problem was in "sending the mail", so yes that caused the problem

15:45<sdsdsd>Well, after some segmetation faults, i get some errors and i have use fsck manually....
15:46<faheem>sdsdsd: segfaults often mean hardware problems. first thing i would do is run some hardware checks

21:42<sney>I found a howto online a while ago, but the fact of the matter is that compiz only likes gnome and kde, and the others you have to hack to make it work
21:43<sney>hopefully they will fix that in a future release

21:59<tonyd>Well, It is a compiz/beryl theme.
22:01<tonyd>I just want some opinions on the various desktop environments. I like xfce better than gnome and kde, but I cant find any themes? if I did wouldn't be able to install them. I have compiz installed, but don't even know what it is or if it is doing anything at all other than taking up space
22:03<sney>compiz is a set of software for using your graphics accelerator to make the desktop. It's basically a bunch of eye candy. the most famous thing is the 'rotating cube' desktop switcher
22:03<goodger_>tonyd: compiz is a window manager that adds a large quantity of resource-intensive special effects to windows, most of which are implemented in order to make Ubuntu look cooler than Windows Vista
22:06<Nemoder>tonyd: install/run compizconfig-settings-manager to see all the stuff you can do with it

22:33<rjent>leo: Not sure what you need but you should consider a live cd to boot and do your work then take your time on the repair

22:34<int_80h>yes, rjent has a good can kill two birds with one stone that way sometimes
22:34<rjent>I like debian-live but I am biased
22:34<leo>the install cd recognises vista when reinstalling grub but then it's not on the list
22:34<leo>until i go 'osprober'
22:35<rjent>forget all the problems and just use a live cd if time is of the essance
22:35<int_80h>i do not use osprober, i manually manage my grub entries
22:35<int_80h>booting vista or win7 is as easy as root, makeactive, chainloader +1 usually
22:36<leo>i think makeactive i could try on the grub2 win entry
22:36<leo>i would use a livecd but i don't have one
22:37<leo>unfortunately have a job agency interview to goto now

22:38<int_80h>aw, no thanks for me
22:38<int_80h>okay guys, here's a question i've been mulling for a while
22:38-!-Bolle1961 [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
22:38<int_80h>has anyone ever wanted to install something through apt that has unnecessary dependencies?
22:39<abrotman>such as ?
22:39<rjent>yes example please
22:39<int_80h>how do YOU get around them? you can force it to install but apt will not work after, or you can create a virtual package to fool apt into thinking the dependencies are there
22:39<abrotman>are you sure you don't mean Recommends ?
22:39<int_80h>no, i have recommends disabled
22:39<int_80h>i should be more clear
22:39<int_80h>i am sure the dependency is there
22:39-!-Bolle1961 [] has joined #debian
22:39<int_80h>but it will run without
22:40<int_80h>e.g. i wanted to install kpat just now, and it wants esound, arts support, libavahi, etc
22:40<rjent>If a package has dependency that should be recommends then you should file issue with the maintainer
22:40<abrotman>because it probably depends on kdelibs .. which wants all that stuff
22:40<int_80h>right, so it is a multi-level dependency on stuff that the individual app does not strictly need
22:40<int_80h>i have had this issue before
22:41<int_80h>i wanted to install something the other day that wanted to install swsusp! which is clearly Not Necessary
22:41<int_80h>my point was not to start a discussion on the dependency system per se, but ask if anyone ever has the need to work around it that i perceive (:
22:43<Nemoder>you would have to rebuild the package from source to not use those dependencies
22:43<int_80h>yes, that is an option
22:43<int_80h>albeit a somewhat tedious one
22:44<int_80h>kpat runs fine without, for example, libavahi being on the system. although kdelibs wants it, it's not necessary for kpat
22:44<int_80h>so i can get around this with virtual packages MUCH easier than installing from source
22:44<Nemoder>in that case you would have to rebuild kdelibs to not require avahi
22:45<int_80h>i disagree with your use of 'have to', nemoder :P
22:45<int_80h>but i recognise this is your recommendation
22:46<tonyd>what is beryl is it better than compiz?
22:46<abrotman>beryl is dead
22:47<int_80h>beryl re-merged with compiz a while ago, tonyd
22:47<int_80h>you can read about it on wikipedia
22:47<Nemoder>afaik beryl was a fork of the original compiz that merged back into compiz fusion
22:47<tonyd>oh. is there a better alternative to compiz or is the alternative to do without?
22:47<int_80h>what's your problem with compiz?
22:47<int_80h>is it not doing something you need?
22:48<tonyd>nothing really a problem just don't know how to set it up and I am using xfce,
22:48<int_80h>xfce does not have a manager that can be replaced by compiz atm, afaik
22:48<tonyd>Is there a desktop environment better than xfce?
22:49<int_80h>everyone uses what is best for them (:
22:49<int_80h>i use fluxbox, many MANY people use gnome, or KDE
22:49-!-quantumcoffeemug [] has joined #debian
22:49<int_80h>so 'better' is too relative for me to say
22:49<rjent>Is gome smaller in footprint wrt memory than kde4?
22:50<int_80h>i dunno. check the 'size' field for kdelibs and kde-data vs gnome-core maybe?
22:50-!-quantumcoffeemug [] has quit []
22:51<tonyd>I did not care for kde or gnome, I am a 24 year windows user so I need something close to familiar and easy for the novice to figure out. It seems like rocket science to do the simplest things to me. Like finding where my porograms are installed so I can add a shortcut to my panel, lol
22:51<int_80h>i don't think most people use gnome or kde if they care about footprint
22:51<int_80h>tonyd, windows is not natural to use. you spent 24 years using it
22:51<int_80h>nothing will be as easy to you immediately as windows is now
22:52<int_80h>but gnome is probably as easy to use for a complete noob as windows is
22:52<int_80h>they are quite similar in some respects
22:52<int_80h>i hope that made sense, haha
22:53<tonyd>I am not computer illiterate by any means, but I just don't know how to do the things I want to do in linux. Can anyone suggest a good guide online to teach myself?
22:53<tonyd>and yes it made sence
22:54<tonyd>sorry got a baby in one arm typing with the other
22:55<int_80h>tonyd, i learned originally but learning one task at a time. figure out something simple you can't do yet, and learn it
22:56<int_80h>the more of these tasks you figure out the broader your knowledge will become, as you learn the 'linux way' of doing things
22:56<int_80h>you may also start to be able to discern between those tutorials written for the gui and those for the cli, and i find the cli tutorials to be more explanatory

23:24<itsosimpo>hello friends! just got a new laptop and i want to install debian in one partition. what distro is best for these specs: Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo (2.2 GHz) ?
23:25<itsosimpo>err, here:
23:26<sney>good choice, toshibas are usually pretty good for driver support
23:26<itsosimpo>yeah that's what i hear too
23:26<itsosimpo>i'm on a compaq presario right now
23:26<itsosimpo>the driver support is okay
23:26<itsosimpo>great for my wireless
23:26<sney>wireless is such a grab bag
23:27<itsosimpo>haha i hear that toshiba's internal wireless is supported in some linux distros
23:27<itsosimpo>i hope it works fine with mine
23:27<sney>lately toshiba has been using some little realtek USB wifi adapters inside the case, which is a supported device
23:27<itsosimpo>the only problem i've had with this distro on my compaq is my ipod shuffle
23:27<itsosimpo>but that was resolved easily with a python script
23:28<sney>so what do you mean by "which distro?" debian is only one
23:28<sney>if you're talking about debian-based stuff they have their own channels and are not supported here :P
23:29<itsosimpo>err i mean.... i'm confused about the architecture
23:29<itsosimpo>this is intel core2 duo, is it i386?
23:29<sney>i386 and AMD64 will both work
23:30<itsosimpo>hm, it's interesting that AMD64 will work
23:30<sney>amd got there first so they get the architecture name. Debian amd64 is for any x86_64 cpu
23:31-!-spdupee [] has joined #debian
23:31<itsosimpo>i thought intel always releases stuff first
23:31<sney>not every time
23:32<sney>Intel still downplays x86_64's advantages, and will probably continue to do so until 4GB+ ram amounts are more common
23:32<spdupee>is there any good sit to see how to config apache2 to allow user directories?
23:32<int_80h>may i take this moment to recommend, while we're on the topic, that new users not run amd64, as you may (will) have some issues that have complicated workarounds
23:33<itsosimpo>hm i'm guessing i386 is 32 bits?
23:33<sney>int_80h: heh, it seems to vary from machine to machine, but yes. i386 is better supported.
23:33<sney>itsosimpo: bingo
23:34<itsosimpo>how about ia64?
23:34<sney>ia64 is not for yours
23:34<sney>it's for a different kind of CPU that intel makes for high-end servers
23:34<sney>completely unrelated to i386/amd64/etc
23:35<int_80h>the itanium :D :D
23:35<itsosimpo>oh that sounds fancy. okay well i'm going to take advantage of 64 bits computing
23:35<int_80h>flash probably won't work for you
23:35<int_80h>if you're using a desktop
23:35<itsosimpo>i'm going with the amd64
23:35<int_80h>that's the most immediate issue
23:36<itsosimpo>int_80h: why won't flash work for me?
23:36<sney>int_80h: he may need backports/squeeze for wifi support anyway. Toshiba likes the RTL8187B for wireless and that's only supported by 2.6.27 and later
23:36-!-rjent [] has joined #debian
23:37<sney>itsosimpo: if you have a wired network connection available, don't worry about it. get the base system installed and come back. helping with wifi is one of the things #debian is great at
23:37<int_80h>see, this is why i recommend 32bit for desktops at this time
23:37-!-siskulous [] has joined #debian
23:37<int_80h>i run 64 on my servers
23:38<itsosimpo>oh it's not a desktop, it's a laptop:
23:38<sney>itsosimpo: if you don't have more than 3.5GB of ram, you won't notice a difference between i386 and amd64, so you migh as well go with i386 for the better software support/fewer bugs
23:38<itsosimpo>i have 4 gigs
23:38<faheem>sney: he might add more ram later, though
23:39<itsosimpo>and i might add more :) :)
23:39<sney>and he already has 4 gigs
23:39<faheem>itsosimpo: what is your mb ram capacity?
23:39<faheem>sney: not that much these days
23:39<faheem>the machines i regularly work on have 64 gig
23:39<sney>faheem: yeah. I'm still chugging along with 2G here
23:39<faheem>depends what you are doing, i suppose
23:40<int_80h>itsosimpo: it's up to you, just be aware of the challenges you will face. flash doesn't run natively in 64 (there is a plugin, but it's alpha)
23:40<int_80h>so you'll need to run a 32bit browser
23:40<faheem>itsosimpo: flash works fine on 64bit
23:40<int_80h>which means maintaining a 32bit library setup
23:40<faheem>i use it
23:40<faheem>on lenny at least
23:40<int_80h>it is alpha. it crashes a lot on my boxes. which are lenny
23:40<sney>works in squeeze too
23:40<siskulous>I run that 64 bit flash plugin....It's a real PITA.
23:40<int_80h>so you see, there is a mixed reception
23:40<sney>ok, so it's a "maybe works" as opposed to a "doesn't work"
23:40<itsosimpo>yeah i've been on debian for less than a year
23:40<faheem>int_80h: flash crashes all the time anyway, where 32b or 64 :-)
23:40<sney>maybe is much better
23:41<int_80h>haha I am not telling anyone not to use 64, I just want the poor fellow to know he may have some troubles!
23:41<int_80h>it IS harder, unquestionably, to run 64bit
23:41<faheem>int_80h: fair enough
23:41<itsosimpo>i'm on compaq 32-bits, 3 gigs ram
23:42<faheem>personally, not that big a deal either way i think. my home machine is 32b, office machine 64b
23:42<itsosimpo>that's okay i'll atleast have other partitions to run applications if i need them
23:42<faheem>i haven't noticed much difference in usability at all
23:42<sney>and you can always bounce back to windows if you get completely lost
23:42<sney>brb, rebootin'
23:42-!-sney [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
23:42<siskulous>I will say this: I run 64 bit Squeeze on 2 machines and the only trouble I have is with Flash.
23:43-!-DebZhila [] has joined #debian
23:43-!-sney [] has joined #debian
23:43<siskulous>One of those machines is a Toshiba Satellite, though not the model you linked to.
23:43<sney>I changed my mind
23:43<sney>I got lenny running on a satellite a210 without too much trouble a while ago
23:46<faheem>when people say flash here, are they talking embedded in a web browser (which is the only way I use it) or something else?
23:46<faheem>i think embedded flash is the major reason my web browsers crash.
23:47<siskulous> GoogleFu sucks tonight....Anyone know where I can find the changelogs for the radeonhd driver?
23:47<faheem>siskulous: or just go to and follow links
23:48<itsosimpo>oh boy i just realized that this is the server channel
23:48<faheem>i think there is a link to the changelog from from every source package page
23:48<faheem>itsosimpo: ?

23:51<sney>itsosimpo: this is the general #debian channel, but probably more people run linux on servers than on desktops/laptops
23:52<itsosimpo>oh okay, thank you
23:52<int_80h>itsosimpo yeah but all the desktop people come here anyway, don't worry about it
23:52<sney>it's only bad when they're actually running ubuntu and expecting us to help :|
23:53<int_80h>hahaha i cannot understand why they would do that, ubuntu has about three times the user-level support debian does
23:53<int_80h>still happens, though
23:53<itsosimpo>yyeah i'm not exactly sure why i like debian better than ubuntu
23:54<itsosimpo>i think i actually learn more using debian
23:55<faheem>itsosimpo: ubuntu is a snapshot of debian. they are not different things
23:55<faheem>the fact that people think this is a triumph of marketing
23:56<itsosimpo>faheem: what's wrong with that?
23:57<faheem>itsosimpo: what's wrong with what?
23:57<itsosimpo>that i think ubuntu is a triumph of marketing
23:57<faheem>itsosimpo: um, not sure i follow
23:57<faheem>maybe i was being unclear
23:57<siskulous>Bah, it's a snapshot of the unstable branch with junk added that makes it less stable. At least that was my experience with it.
23:57<itsosimpo>yeah, could you clarify?
23:58<itsosimpo>if it's less stable why does it look so much flashier?
23:58<faheem>what i meant to say was, the fact that people think Ubuntu is different from Debian is a triumph of marketing
23:58<faheem>itsosimpo: flashiness and stability have little to do with each other
23:58<itsosimpo>oh, i see.
23:58<siskulous>stability != flashiness.
23:58<itsosimpo>yeah, um.
23:58-!-DebZhila [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:59<siskulous>Admittedly, my experience with Ubuntu is way out of date though. They may have improved in the three years or so since I last loaded it up to look at.
23:59<faheem>actually, if the whole Ubuntu business has shown anything, it is how important marketing is
23:59-!-aranax [~aranax@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
23:59<faheem>for years you couldn't get people to review the new Debian release
23:59<Xenguy>absolutely agreed. they are pushing the envelope, and that necessarily entails less stability - it's just common sense (and also my own experience)
23:59<siskulous>Yeah, they've got the marketing aspect down, which is good for Linux in general.
