01:41<s4br3>Hi, does anyone know if different distros using identical kernels have different hardware detection capacities. A guy said his distro where Debian failed. I thought it was the kernel detecting new hardware. What else could it be?!
01:42<s4br3>Hi, does anyone know if different distros using identical kernels have different hardware deteA guy said his distro detected a network card where Debian failed.
01:42<s4br3>Sorry for the clutter
01:43<ABCD>"different distros using identical kernels"... there are no two distros that use identical kernels
01:43<ABCD>(at least, not in my experience)
01:44<s4br3>No, there are no "vanilla kernels"?
01:44<jmarsden>s4br3: Not that distros actually use as is :)
01:45<s4br3>But, wouldn't everyone use something as a essential a some other distro's better hw detection?!

05:37<themill>rah: this would normally be because you don't have other packages installed that you should have installed or because you're mixing different versions of the packages. Any reason you're not installing with aptitude?

05:41<rah>themill: I believe the package that I should have installed is 'mediatomb' which I previously removed
05:42<rah>themill: and as you can see, that's the package I'm trying to install when I get the fatal error
05:42<rah>themill: I'm not installing with aptitude because I'm not aware of any reason I should
05:42-!-cydork [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
05:42<themill>You should always use a proper dependency resolver to install things.
05:43<themill>judd depends mediatomb --release squeeze
05:43<judd>themill: mediatomb -- Depends: mediatomb-daemon (>= 0.12.0~svn2018-4), iceweasel | firefox | www-browser
05:43<themill>do you have "mediatomb-daemon" of an approrpriate version installed?
05:43<themill>judd depends mediatomb-daemon --release squeeze
05:43<judd>themill: mediatomb-daemon -- Depends: mediatomb-common (>= 0.12.0~svn2018-4), adduser (>= 3.34)
05:43<themill>and mediatomb-common?
05:43<rah>well, I'm not sure if I do have it installed actually
05:43<rah>pc mediatomb-daemon 0.12.0~svn2018-4 UPnP MediaServer (daemon package)
05:44<themill>that would be "no"
05:44<rah>I think you're misunderstanding the problem
05:44-!-grochap [~grochap@] has joined #debian
05:45<rah>I can't install any mediatomb packages because there is a problem with the statoverride file
05:45-!-[fFf] [] has joined #debian
05:45<rah>there is a problem with the statoverride file, it seems because I can't install any mediatomb packages
05:46<rah>so the question is: how can I install or remove such packages?
05:46<rah>ie, how do I resolve the issue with the statoverride file?
05:47<themill>rah: back up the statoverride file, remove the two mediatomb lines from it and then all should be well. But next time *USE APTITUDE* and you wouldn't have this problem.
05:48<rah>why would have this problem with aptitude but not apt?
05:48<rah>why would have this problem with apt but not aptitude?
05:48<themill>you didn't use apt, you used dpkg
05:48<rah>no, I used apt
05:48<themill>you haven't actually installed any of the dependencies for mediatomb, including mediatomb-daemon that creates the user
05:49<rah>I have
05:49<themill>that dpkg output just showed that you didn't have mediatomb-daemon installed
05:49<rah>I don't have it installed now
05:49*themill gives up

05:50-!-mhash [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
05:51<rah>seems to be a bug with mediatomb
05:52<themill>more likely a problem with the way you were installing it...
05:52<rah>I don't think so
05:52<themill>(I just tried it and it worked without any problem)

05:56<rah>as I said, seems to be a bug with mediatomb

05:57<themill>rah: once again, I don't see that behaviour; but you just showed me that it did install correctly
05:57<Nopsus>sis 620, debian squeeze
05:57<rah>themill: and that there is no problem with the way I was installing it
05:58<themill>rah: err... except that when you installed it using apt it worked fine and when you installed just one random package by dpkg it didn't work fine which is what I've been telling you for the last 20 minutes
05:59-!-ernesto [] has joined #debian
05:59<Nopsus>err... someone?
06:00<rah>themill: the problem wasn't the way in which I was installing it

06:15-!-BdN3504 [~BdN3504@] has joined #debian
06:15<Nopsus>how to restart X after that?

07:05<Jarlaxe>hi everyone, i need some advices about upgrading system. I run a lenny/sid on a eeepc 701, installed on SDcard, lxde. I installed lenny stable first. Then an advice suggest me to move to Sid. Recently, i did an upgrade and i have several bugs now that i don't know to fix them, and i need a operational system quickly. I don't want to use stable version : i need new features of some software. So can i go from Sid to Testing ? I r
07:07<BlackFate>Jarlaxe, there is a way to downgrade apps but i wouldnt suggest it for a whole desktop... just reinstall

07:09<Jarlaxe>BlackFate: i can't reinstall (i don't have a full acces to internet)
07:10<wwwolf>Jarlaxe: when you want to try Sid, use sidux, there you find also special information regarding eeepc
07:10<Jarlaxe>but i do understand downgrading is not a good way
07:11<BlackFate>Jarlaxe, for now the best i would suggest is try fixing most of the bugs one by one.. since you dont have full net access
07:11<Jarlaxe> ok i got it. thx wwwolf
07:11-!-jm_ [flier@] has joined #debian
07:11<BlackFate>Jahman, no need to download whole sidux iso... just add the sidux sources
07:12<Jarlaxe>BlackFate: so for that point. A recent boot sequence locked on a forced checking of the system. I try to find it back in logs, but i didn't. There are pb with alsa, X server and i don't know what else

07:15<BlackFate>Jarlaxe, yeh i know that boot sequence delay.. i think it was a udev error.. but now its all fixed

12:05<Titan8990>right, and it appears to be a kernel problem
12:06-!-davi [] has joined #debian
12:06<HardwareFreak>Titan8990: no. I've been running with the kernel since Oct without problems. But, I didn't have a sata card/drive until yesterday. If I go back to 2.6.26 I'll have to compile another 2.6.26 with wil sata_sil support. I've been running custom kernels for about 6 years. I don't even have a stock kernel on the machine. Has libata or sata_sil changed from 2.6.26 to 2.6.31?
12:07<Titan8990>HardwareFreak, couldn't say, what is the need for custom kernel?
12:07<Titan8990>the default .26 will have sata_sil support

12:10<HardwareFreak>Titan8990: many reasons. Old system, limited RAM, I don't like bloat, stock kernels are phat with all kinds of stuff I don't need and won't use. I don't think there's anything in make menuconfig that I missed relating to sata. I just compiled the kernel day before yesterday, keeping all the same settings as my previous kernel, but adding sata_sil.
12:10<dserban_>The squeeze installer is detecting two ide drives (same make/model) which are both connected to ide ports on the motherboard (different controllers), one as hda, the other as sda, is this normal behaviour and am I safe to use both in a bootable raid 1 array?
12:11-!-arw [foobar@] has joined #debian
12:11<Titan8990>HardwareFreak, the kernel is not bloated, most of the feature are modules, not compiled in to the kernel

13:13<HardwareFreak>Titan8990: found it. I hadn't enabled "SCSI Disk Support" under the SCSI section of make menuconfig. Doing so now and compiling a new kernel.
13:14<Titan8990>HardwareFreak, I still think its completely unnecessary unless your just trying to drop the initrd for increased boot time
13:14<HardwareFreak>Titan8990: SCSI Disk Support is required for libata SATA support. This SCSI Disk Support is what causes SATA disk to be enumerated as /dev/Sda /dev/Sdb etc

13:15<HardwareFreak>Titan8990: that's one of the reasons as well. Also, I've been upgrading this same system since Woody, and thus use LILO. Switching to Grub at this stage could be wrought with problems according to some stuff I've read so I staying with LILO and no initrd.
13:15<brbrbr>just naming ? mot NCQ depend on SCSI or other things ? :)
13:16<Titan8990>HardwareFreak, lilo can boot an initrd iirc
13:17<HardwareFreak>brbrbr: I don't know _all_ the specifics on how SCSI and litata are linked.
13:17-!-babilen [] has joined #debian
13:17<brbrbr>i mean, SATA feats need SCSI, not only because naming, right?
13:18<brbrbr>same problem
13:18<HardwareFreak>Titan8990: I read in the Lenny release notes that the boot image or boot image + initrd can be too large for LILO and will crash it. It also said switching to Grub can cause boot failure. So, I just stuck with LILO and no initrd. I've never used initrd.
13:18-!-masaru [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
13:18<brbrbr>having Lilo with debian until Lenny beta2, flawless, then ... no way, because use LVM :/

15:10<stuckey_>Anyone here know anything about networks? I'm trying to forward a port with a samsung router but I'm not havnig any lucky.
15:11<stuckey_>It is really frustrating since I already have one port forwarded and it IS working, and I've used the exact same method to forward a second one, and it doesn't work
15:12<stuckey_>Maybe I could just use the first one for two things? would that work?

15:12<Titan8990>stuckey_, no
15:12<stuckey_>I must have a shitty router.

15:13<Titan8990>stuckey_, i didn't know samsung made routers, so i would say so
15:13<stuckey_>I guess I'll just have to turn one server off... then use the other one
15:13<stuckey_>that would work
15:13<Titan8990>stuckey_, did you try scanning the port from a remote location?
15:14<stuckey_>I used the web feature on utorrent
15:14<stuckey_>do you know a better way to scan it?
15:14<Titan8990>uuh, i log in to my VPS and use nmap
15:14<Titan8990>judd, versions utorrent
15:14<judd>Titan8990: utorrent --
15:14<Titan8990>stuckey_, utorrent is a window application
15:14<stuckey_>ah... didn't think of that
15:15<stuckey_>Titan8990: How do I do it with nmap?
15:15<Titan8990>nmap -sS -p# xx.xx.xx.xx
15:15<stuckey_>I meant, I went to and they had a web feature to scan ports. So I don't know if it was the best way.
15:15<Titan8990>where # is the port number
15:16<stuckey_>how do I get my ip?
15:16<HardwareFreak>Titan8990: got the SATA card/drive working after compiling the new kernel with "SCSI Disk" enabled. Thanks for steering me in the right direction, even if by accident :)
15:16<stuckey_>Unfortunately my VPS doesn't have nmap...

15:17<Titan8990>!install it
15:17<dpkg>*** NEWS FLASH! *** Your box does not come with every app, tool and utility known to debiankind installed already.

17:59<HardwareFreak>stuckey: do you have permission from your VPS provider to do a distro upgrade? Before even looking at the technical hurdles, this question must be answered.

18:00<stuckey>I think it's full-upgrade now?

18:00<dpkg>dist-upgrade tells apt to also install/remove packages when handling dependencies; security updates may require a dist-upgrade to install (they introduce new packages). Dist-upgrade does not mean changing from stable to testing; in lenny, aptitude calls dist-upgrade "full-upgrade" to remove this confusion. Read man apt-get carefully.

18:54<retroj>hello. i have a bit of a funny situation. due to having a slow, unreliable internet connection, I almost never do an "aptitude safe-upgrade". What I do instead is see what safe-upgrade wants to install, then I install a few packages at a time with "aptitude install". This method will lead to the majority of packages on my system being marked as manually installed instead of automatic. Will this cause problems with dependenc
18:54<retroj>resolution in the future? Is there something I can do to avoid having all these incidental packages marked as manual?

19:07<stuckey>themill: could I backport a package from sid into lenny?
19:07<stuckey>I think I've done this before but I'm not exactly sure how

19:12<themill>retroj: ~i is installed packages, ~M is automatically installed packages, so the first command saves the list of automatically installed packages fro you. xargs runs the following command with everything that's in its stdin as command line args.
19:13<themill>retroj: -F '%100p' is just a format string so that aptitude just prints the package name

20:32<HardwareFreak>do links traverse mount points? Another words, if I create a link /newroot/vmlinuz -> /newboot/vmlinuz- and then reboot, with fstab mounting the previous /newroot as / and the previous /newboot as /boot, will the link I created before rebooting still be intact? In other words, are links tied to file system paths, or file system/device lodations?
20:32<stuckey>if it's a hardlink
20:32-!-jtaji [~jtaji@] has joined #debian
20:33<stuckey>Are backports totally worthless or?
20:33<HardwareFreak>so hard links don't care about relative mount points?
20:33<kooll>HardwareFreak: symbolic links containes a path, and as such 'traverse mountpoints' (or rather, points to whatever is the path they contain). hardlinks work only inside a single partition, and are two names for the same file.
20:34<dpkg>backport is probably a package from a newer Debian branch, compiled from source for an older branch to avoid dependency and ABI complications. (2.7.4 and 2.7.10), Ask me about <> and <backport caveat>. See also <simple sid backport>.
20:34<stuckey>Does anyone here, know, how I can install a NEWER versino of debhelper
20:34<jpinx-eeepc>stuckey: pastebin your error

20:36<dondelelcaro>that should clue you in immediately to the problem.

20:37<HardwareFreak>kooll: thanks. So if do "link /newboot/vmlinuz- /newroot/vmliuz" I'll be ok when I mount /newboot and /newroot as /boot and / after I reboot the system and change the controller BIOS to boot from the new SATA disk, and disable booting from IDE?

20:39<scc>so i'm stuck on the GRUB phase
20:40<damiank>hi im back

20:40-!-AzaToth [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
20:40<stuckey>dondelelcaro: do you see what's wrong?
20:40<HardwareFreak>kooll: wait. oops. According to what you said about hard links only within a partition, my /boot and / are on different partitions. So, given my current config on the IDE disk, I'm using two different partitions for /boot and /. So, what kind of link is /vmlinuz which points to a file on another partition??
20:41<HardwareFreak>kooll: or would I be better off just using the actual file in lilo instead of fucking with links at all?
20:41<amphi>HardwareFreak: a symbolic link
20:42<scc>a need a GRUB expert there somebody with this knoweldge???
20:42<HardwareFreak>amphi: so how do I create the appropriate symbolic link that I need here?
20:43<scc>mmmm ok...that's ok...i will wait..i'll be online cause i need to keep running this server for tomorrow
20:43<amphi>HardwareFreak: ln -s
20:43<amphi>scc: what does 'cat /boot/grub/' say?
20:45<HardwareFreak>amphi: will symbolic links survive changing mount points, and thus pathnames?

20:49<amphi>HardwareFreak: only symlinks can be created across filesystem boundaries, not hardlinks

21:00<jpinx-eeepc>stuckey: what's difficult about installing debhelper with aptitude and the appropriate options?
21:01<stuckey>there's absolutely no point to not using sid, if you nee dnewer packages

21:01<HardwareFreak>Nemoder: I've got the drive running and have partitioned up about 40GB worth of it. So, the drivers see it all and work with it. Will lilo?
21:01<dpkg>sid is the <unstable> version of Debian. Sid is the destructive kid in Toy Story. It is NOT an acronym, but is sometimes backronymed Still In Development anyway. Do not use sid unless you have the skill to find your way out of the mess that broken packages may put you in; sid is not supported in #debian because sid users should be able to solve their own problems. Sid will never be released. See also <sid faq> <unstable>.
21:01<Nemoder>HardwareFreak: try it and see?
21:01<jpinx-eeepc>stuckey: ^^
21:02<HardwareFreak>Nemoder: I'm guessing, one way or another, I'm going to find out lol.
21:02*HardwareFreak smiles :)
21:02<Nemoder>"Use of 'lba32' is recommended on all post-1998 systems." from man lilo.conf
21:03<stuckey>If you need newer packages you should just use sid... unless you're througly familiar with the workings of the packages necessary to maintain a mixed system. But even then, the benefit of this would be negigable.

22:38<faheem>Neilrw: what kernel are you running, and what is your arch?
22:39-!-virtuald [~hora@2002:52d1:9cc8::] has joined #debian
22:41<abrotman>Neilrw: aptitude install linux-image-2.6-bigmem
22:41<abrotman>then reboot
22:41<Neilrw> thats it?
22:42<abrotman>would oyu like an elaborate explanation ?
22:42<Neilrw>will it rebuild the kernel on next boot?
22:42-!-mentor [~mentor@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
22:43<flaarg>it will install the bigmem kernel, select that in grub on boot and you will be able to access more than 3.someting GB of ram
22:43<Neilrw>thanks guys
22:44<Neilrw>just going to get it now

23:03<Web-snake>music must be free i got it
23:03<HardwareFreak>well this sucks... I got the system booting from the new drive after cp'ing everything over and dragging lilo kicking and screaming into doing his thing on the new disk. However, it gets just past mounting / and then the system hard locks...

23:07<HardwareFreak>flaarg: think I found the problem. It's trying to mount swap on the other drive. But, I removed that swap mount entry from /etc/fstab on the new disk. How do I prevent this "phantom swap mounting"?
23:08<flaarg>if its not in the fstab it should try to mount it
23:08<HardwareFreak>flaarg: yeah, I thought the same thing. Want the paste bin?
23:08-!-Neilrw [] has joined #debian
23:09<Neilrw>hey guys
23:09<flaarg>I guess, I normally just copy over my /home partition and reinstall the rest

23:12<vdb2>I just built a system with 45 sata disks. They are going to be setup for raid 6 but I just realised a big problem. when a disk fails, how do I know which disk it is? how can I associate /dev/sd* with one of the physical devices?
23:12-!-Neilrw [] has left #debian []
23:13<vdb2>/dev/sd* is dynamically assigned it seems
23:13-!-aranax [~aranax@] has quit []
23:13<flaarg>they are usually in the order they are found by your sata controller, I don't know about raids
23:14<vdb2>yea I know but the problem is I have 4 cards, and 9 5 port backplanes
23:14-!-br4z3r [~br4z3r@] has quit []
23:14<vdb2>so 1 card is running 10 or 15 disks

23:16-!-cockroach [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
23:16<vdb2>is it possible to statically assign a /dev/sdbar designation?
23:17<vdb2>if i could just stop the system from renaming drives after a restart (because even though they are hot swapable, I won't be doing that)
23:17<vdb2>I think I could solve my problem
23:17<flaarg>you would have to use udev rules, and it would kinda defeat the purpose of raid, I think that there are good software for this issue
23:17<vdb2>could you recomend some?
23:17<flaarg>I am not that good on raids but mdadm is the only one I have ever heard of
23:18<vdb2>well mdadm simple builds and manages the raid. I'm not sure how it's going to tell me what disk /dev/sdas is
23:18<HardwareFreak>why is the system trying to mount that old swap entry when I've got it commented out in the new drive's /etc/fstab?
23:19<HardwareFreak>is that info cached somewhere?
23:19<flaarg>I am pretty sure that you don't directly access individual disks from a raid
23:19<vdb2>flaarg, no. but mdadm, or smart will identify the disk as /dev/sdbar
23:20<flaarg>I thought the idea was to eject the bad disk, put a new one in, then reconstruct
23:20<vdb2>once the raid is built you never interact with them
23:20<vdb2>yes it is
23:20<vdb2>it very much is
23:20<vdb2>but that's the problem
23:21<git-hi9h>i dunno nuthin, but dont you think there would be a raid.log possibly
23:21<vdb2>I have 45 disks :P
23:21<vdb2>how can I tell which one of the physical disks died from the log
23:21<flaarg>hmmm good point
23:21<vdb2>I buil a 67TB raid for $8k.
23:22<vdb2>managing it has become a nightmare :/

23:38<HardwareFreak>found that little bastard
23:38<flaarg>what was it?
23:38<HardwareFreak>fstab data is chached in /etc/mtab
23:39<HardwareFreak>apparently the kernel builds mtab from fstab, and fstab is just the placekeeper config file
23:39<HardwareFreak>I'm gonna modigy mtab and see if that fixes it. Take a bit...

23:42<mohan43u_>can someone tell me why nvidia-glx is not installing in squeeze???
23:42<Nemoder>!nvidia squeeze
23:42<dpkg>non-free nvidia+squeeze guide: (a) aptitude upgrade ; aptitude full-upgrade (ensure you are running the current kernel; /msg judd kernels) (b) create a testing/unstable mix (ask me about <tum>) (c) aptitude install module-assistant; aptitude -R -t sid install nvidia-kernel-source; m-a prepare; m-a a-i nvidia && aptitude -t sid install nvidia-glx. (d) Configure xorg.conf as per
23:42<flaarg>its not set to the current linux version iirc
23:43<jpinx-eeepc>mohan43u_: Squeeze is currently broken afaik
23:44<HardwareFreak>crap. I spoke too soon. Some mounts were in mtab, but now swap. I eliminated the dup entries for the old drive and renamed the new ones. Still can't find where the system is loading that obsolete/removed swap partition
23:44<flaarg>its sad that its easier to just install the headers than use the bin from nvidia, you just have to manually update everytime the kernel updates
23:44<HardwareFreak>but noT swap i meant

23:51<HardwareFreak>I thought that was really really fishy, so I checked the timestamp on dmesg. It's from before the first boot on the new drive. Apparently since the machine is hard locking on boot, dmesg is never getting written, along with anything to syslog. However, fixing up those entries in mtab might help....
