00:13<fisxoj>hi, can someone tell me where dpkg-divert put my original libGL, when fglrx replaced it?

00:23<tbielawa>fisxoj: try grepping through "dpkg-divert --list"
00:23-!-gaurav [] has joined #debian
00:23<fisxoj>tbielawa, thanks, I've found them now. Do you know if there's a way I can switch back and forth easily?
00:23<tbielawa>I have no idea :)
00:26-!-olpcfan [] has joined #debian
00:27-!-mhash [] has joined #debian
00:28-!-arw [foobar@] has left #debian [Leaving.]
00:28<jmarsden>fisxoj: Script the commands to switch them and run the script as needed. With a test you could probably make a script that toggles between two different diversions, if you wanted to.
00:28<olpcfan>When I first log in, before I start X, my man pages have color (mostly white and cyan). After I start X, my man pages aren't in color, but everything else is ... any ideas? :)
00:29<fisxoj>jmarsden, I just don't know how to juggle the diversions... it divers libgl to a directory, but, then I need to divert back to use the mesa libgl... agh
00:29<fisxoj>I can't think of a clean way to deal with it
00:30<jmarsden>fisxoj: test which one is currently diverted, and run the commands to undivert that one and divert the other...
00:30<fisxoj>jmarsden, that makes sense. Thank you for being smart for me
00:31<jmarsden>You're welcome :)

00:35<fisxoj>though, actually, I'm not sure dpkg-divert can handle it

01:02<Lehik>çäåñü ãîâîðÿò íà ðóññêîì?
01:03<jmarsden>fisxoj: I'm not sure. If diversions don't work for you, could you use the alternatives subsystem instead in some way?
01:03<jmarsden>Lehik: This channel uses English, sorry. I can't tell what language you are speaking.
01:03<fisxoj>jmarsden, I think I can for libgl, because there are symlinks involved, but, for the xorg modules, I'm trying to change what path they load from
01:04-!-OutSider [] has joined #debian
01:04-!-OutSider [] has quit []
01:05<jmarsden>fisxoj: CAn you create two directory trees and then have the "official" directory (where xorg will look for modules) be a symlink to either one of those two?
01:05<jm_>nvidia-glx uses diversions for libGL
01:05<musca>Lehik: but looks good, every character has some decoration on it
01:06<fisxoj>jmarsden, I'm afraid of screwing up updates thought apt
01:06<jmarsden>Yes, it probably would do that. Pin the packages concerned, and undo your trickery before updating the packages concerned??
01:09<fisxoj>jmarsden, trying for something that means less hassle in the future
01:10<jmarsden>fisxoj: That's easy: just don't use two conflicting packages, pick just one -- bingo, less hassle :)
01:11-!-Lehik [] has left #debian []
01:11<fisxoj>but then I need to choose between a laptop that can play games, and one that has awesome battery life! This is linux! Everything is possible!

04:12<sam_>see my rply
04:12<cahoot>sam_: FYI dpkg is a bot
04:13<babilen>sam_: what 'technology' do you mean? Ports are usually opened by programs that communicate over them (a webserver listen on port 80 for example) and are open unless blocked with a firewall
04:14<wuolfit>I have a problem you could help me please?
04:14<dpkg>If you have a question, just ask! For example: "I have a problem with ___; I'm running Debian version ___. When I try to do ___ I get the following output ___. I expected it to do ___."

04:15<wuolfit>ok dpkg tanks
04:16<wuolfit>i use debian lenny
04:16<babilen>sam_: I am taking a wild guess here, but 'wireshark' and/or 'tcpdump' might be what you are looking for ...
04:16<wuolfit>in a a laptop with an Atheros wireless card, but while installing the drivers can not make it work
04:16<babilen>sam_: Is there a problem you want to solve actually, or are you just curious?
04:16<wuolfit>why ?
04:16-!-gaurav [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
04:17<jm_>wuolfit: which atheros card?

04:19<dpkg>The Atheros AR2425/AR5007* PCI-E wireless LAN chipset is supported by the mainline <ath5k> driver since Linux 2.6.27. Lenny users: ask me about <bpo> to install a later kernel image package. For support of the Atheros AR5007UG USB chipset (formerly Zydas ZD1211), ask me about <zd1211rw>.
04:19<dpkg>[ath5k] a completely free (no proprietary HAL) driver for Atheros 802.11a/bg PCI wireless LAN chipsets. Included in Debian kernels since 2.6.24.

04:25<babilen>StarkD: You will have to enable the source repositories in your sources list (basically the deb ... line repeated with deb-src)
04:26<StarkD>babilen: OK
04:26-!-sam_ [~sam@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
04:26<StarkD>jm_: OK I'll google about handling GIT then
04:26<wuolfit>ok tank's and bye for now
04:26<babilen>sam_: Honestly, I am not sure what you are asking about. Are you referring to promiscuous mode?
04:26<babilen>wuolfit: good luck!
04:26<jm_>StarkD: git clone git://... - it's listed there - but this might be newer than what's available in debian, so for most updated stuff this is fine, but might not match what you'll get

05:33<vasily>Ah! Generally how old is debian stable compared to say fedora?
05:33<dpkg>history is probably old and boring or or ask me about <release history> for the reader's digest condensed version

05:34-!-BasaBuru [] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
05:34<jm_>!release history
05:34<dpkg>Debian releases have always been named after characters from the movie "Toy Story". Buzz(1.1; 1996-03-14), Rex(1.2; 1996-10-28), Bo(1.3; 1997-05-01), Hamm(2.0; 1998-07-24), Slink(2.1; 1999-03-09), Potato(2.2; 2000-08-15), Woody(3.0; 2002-07-19), Sarge(3.1; 2005-06-06) Etch(4.0; 2007-04-08), Lenny(5.0; 2009-02-14). The next release will be Squeeze. See also
05:35<vasily>I mean package versions, like kernels and such.
05:36<jm_>that depends, it's typically older when a new stable release comes out

05:39-!-alephnull [~alok@] has joined #debian
05:39<ananth123>very stable.... there might be some occasional glitches with a few packages, but thats possible with all distros
05:39<babilen>vasily: If you need a newer version of a package you should use a backported one from
05:40<jm_>easy to use newer kernel only
05:42<vasily>I don't have anything specific in mind. I just like the stablity of Debian and that it just seems to work, but I like new shiny toys like kde4 too.
05:43<jm_>there is kde4 for stable
05:43<dpkg>well, kde 4 is the version of <KDE> that you will find in Squeeze. Because KDE 4 is so new, you might get more assistance in #debian-kde on Backports of older versions for lenny are available from See also <kde squeeze>.
05:43<themill>that's only kde4.1 and the repo is gone anyway

09:03<HardwareFreak>ok, so there we see the broadband NAT router is passing the source IP to the Postfix Lenny box. So why isn't my iptables rule dropping the packets for the two rules I created? I can see in the Postfix log that one of them is still connecting.
09:03<jm_>HardwareFreak: that's a reply, should be (it is here)
09:04<HardwareFreak>jm_: tcpdump is running on greer is behind the NAT box. DNS for greer points to the public IP of the NAT
09:04<jm_>oz123: better do that in /etc/default/halt
09:04<jm_>HardwareFreak: but isn't that the IP you want to block?
09:05<jm_>HardwareFreak: doh I misread it
09:05-!-foolano [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
09:05<jm_>HardwareFreak: as you see it receives it as that source IP, not as
09:05<jm_>oz123: did you try different wol methods?
09:06<HardwareFreak>the tcpdump data above is random stuff coming in, not the example IP I want to block.
09:06<jm_>ahh OK you want to catch that and compare to your rules

09:07<jm_>HardwareFreak: right, just use -n and compare to your rules, using iptables logging also helps
09:07<HardwareFreak>jm_: din get that...
09:08<HardwareFreak>jm_: that's one of the problems: iptables isn't logging squat, not in kern.log or messages
09:08<jm_>HardwareFreak: it will be easier to investigate if you write it to a file and then load this file in wireshark
09:09<jm_>HardwareFreak: it might be you have accept rules before log rules, make sure to put logging before "end" rules
09:09<HardwareFreak>jm_: can you give me a 10000 ft answer?
09:09-!-liquidat [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
09:10<jm_>HardwareFreak: what's that?
09:10<HardwareFreak>jm_: I have no "log" rules. I thought iptables logs to kern.log or messages by default. Or, does "default" not mean "default"?
09:10<HardwareFreak>to me "deafault" means "automatic"
09:11<jm_>HardwareFreak: no you need LOG rules
09:11<HardwareFreak>does one still have to explicitly state in the iptables rule to log that rule?

09:11<HardwareFreak>I'm brand new to iptables and still tryiing to learn
09:11<oz123>jm_, i tried with etherwake and wakeonlan, no success with both
09:12<HardwareFreak>clear me up on something. _IF_ logging, one needs to rules for each rule, correct? One rule to DROP and one rule to log that DROP?
09:12<HardwareFreak>two rules for each rule I meant
09:12<jm_>oz123: but you have many methods available with ethtool -s wol ...
09:12<HardwareFreak>one logs, the other drops. right?
09:12<jm_>for example yes
09:12<HardwareFreak>or can i put it all on one line?
09:12<jm_>in that order too
09:13<jm_>you can create say LOGDROP chain which does this and then just redirect packets to it
09:13<HardwareFreak>jm_: ok, that's way over my head. I'll have to read up.

09:14<HardwareFreak>jm_: back to the original question. Any idea why the iptables rule isn't dropping the packets, given that we've verified the NAT router is sending the actual public IP source addresses inbound to the private host (greer0?
09:16-!-AbsintheSyringe [] has joined #debian
09:16<HardwareFreak>jm_: or do we need the logging in place before we can state that case with certainty?
09:17<jm_>HardwareFreak: yeah iptables usually just works so my bet would be on something accepting it first or rule doesn't match

09:33<jmm>HardwareFreak: what about just changing -j, to -j LOG_DROP
09:34<jmm>before you'll have to do iptables -N LOG_DROP
09:34<jmm>and iptables -A LOG_DROP -j DROP
09:34<HardwareFreak>jmm: I already got it. Now just checking the log periodically to see if those two IPs try connecting. So far they haven't it seems.
09:34<HardwareFreak>what's the "-N" for?
09:34<jmm>create .
09:35<HardwareFreak>is that just to prevent two rules per rule?
09:35<HardwareFreak>one log, one drop? this eliminates that?
09:36<jmm>no, LOG_DROP will log and forward to DROP.
09:36<HardwareFreak>can't I just have this: -A INPUT -s -j LOG
09:36<HardwareFreak>-A INPUT -s -j DROP
09:37<jmm>I don't think so, but you can try.

09:40<HardwareFreak>so my rules above, they match the man page ins no?
09:40<jmm>oh, I thinked it was just one line.
09:40<HardwareFreak>correct. I have two rules above. One LOG, one DROP

12:10<edrz>so ... i've started using squeeze this week. What is the "correct" way to re-enable ctrl-alt-backspace to kill X?
12:11<dpkg>To disable termination of your X server via Ctrl+Alt+Backspace in Lenny and Etch, place Option "DontZap" "on" within the ServerFlags section of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, see xorg.conf(5). Squeeze users: server zapping is not enabled by default. To enable, use your desktop's Keyboard Preferences application, or use "setxkbmap -option terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp" to enable for the current session.
12:11<patrikf>edrz: like this, just s/on/off/

18:21<houms>the good folks at sidux suggested I check here. any help would be appreciated
18:22<stevecotton>you haven't said what problem you're having yet (this is more of a ask-and-we-might-know channel than a redirect-to-the-maintainer channel)

18:23<houms>oh my apologies, in writer pasting certain websites from iceweasel causes crash with no report window just disappears

18:25<houms>the folks over at sidux seemed to suggest that it was because of thewebpage being so poorly coded

18:25<houms>I kind of find this hard to believe as I would hope that writer should be able to deal with this more elegantly.
18:25<houms>I assume it can as OOo 3.0.1 i believe under linuxmint 7 works with no problems
18:26<houms>note both of these are 64bit version though i do not think that makes much difference

19:12<hdon>doomcup[eeepc]: gsimmons tried to direct you here i believe

19:12-!-exn [~exn@] has quit [Quit: see you later]
19:12<hdon>doomcup[eeepc]: Unlike most wireless cards you can't use the normal iwconfig(8) commands to connnect, you have to use iwpriv(8) instead. I set it up with a WEP access point as below. You can probably get a good idea how to do other configurations by looking at the output of iwpriv ra0 show. Those values are all set with iwpriv ra0 set VARIABLE=Value.
19:12<jpinx-eeepc>!tell nse about alsa checklist

22:07<Silicium01>not "everything I can"
22:07<bithive1>then at least you'll know what you need to learn

22:11<Silicium01>jmarsden, agreed :)

22:12<Silicium01>jmarsden, where would you get started if youw ere me?
22:13<Silicium01>say if you had 24 hours to spend on it
22:13<jmarsden>wel, I already have that book for years and saw that RedBook a few years ago too... I'm not you... if you just want a basic TCP/Ip tutorial,... hmmm, where's the link... wait a sec...

22:14<nisse>i am re-installing debian
22:14<nisse>i have xp on one partition,
22:14<nisse>and i have free space
22:14<nisse>for lenny on the other,
22:14<nisse>how can i have debian use lvm + dmcrypt
22:14<dpkg>The enter key is not a substitute for punctuation. Hitting enter unnecessarily makes it difficult to follow what you are saying. Consider using ',', '. ', ';', '...', '---', or ':' instead. If you hit enter too often, you will be autokicked by debhelper for flooding the channel.
22:14<nisse>thank you adb,
22:15<nisse>however, how can I simply encrypt the partition for one partition, not use the entire disk... that is the entire question.

22:16<jmarsden>Silicium01: Well, you could read say 30 pages/hour so that's 720 pages... you *could* read most of TCP/Ip Illustrated in 24 hours, if you are smart. Not in a single day, but in 24 hours spread out over several days :)
22:16<nisse>how can I encrypt simply one partition using dmcrypt, not the entire disk with the debian installer?
22:16<jmarsden>Silicium01: If you just want a really simple intro, might get you started?? But that's way less than 24 hours worth of material.

23:11-!-arw1 [foobar@] has joined #debian
23:12<abrotman>glad to hear it ..
23:12<abrotman>(just so you know, this is a different network than you were just using)
23:12<TGD17>I know
23:12<amphi>!congratulate TGD17
23:12<dpkg>Good show TGD17, you did it!
23:12<TGD17>I was on freenode
23:12<abrotman>TGD17: that was a long process .. next time just start with the lenny netinst :)
23:12<TGD17>hahaha indeed
23:12<TGD17>will do
23:13<snogglethorpe>anybody with experiences running debian on a netbook?
23:13<snogglethorpe>i'm wondering abuot the viability of a normal install with the flash drive
23:13<snogglethorpe>(dunno, are there netbooks with normal rotating disks?)
23:13<abrotman>snogglethorpe: i have one dual booting
23:13<abrotman>snogglethorpe: yes
23:14<abrotman>snogglethorpe: i have the uh .. HP 1116nr
23:14<snogglethorpe>is it a flash drive?
23:14<TGD17>now I am looking to "install" flash player
23:14<TGD17>aptitude.... something ahahaha
23:14<abrotman>snogglethorpe: it's an SSD i guess
23:14<abrotman>!tell TGD17 about adobe flash
23:14<snogglethorpe>abrotman: do you do anything special (e.g., minimal install, special FS...) or just use normal debian practices?
23:15<snogglethorpe>[most of the websites I've found still mainly seem to talk about "normal" laptops]
23:16<abrotman>snogglethorpe: i didn't .. other than using LXDE which i hadn't before
23:16<snogglethorpe>ah, a kde/gnome alternative?
23:17<dpkg>[lxde] Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment, available for Debian since Lenny. To get LXDE, ask me about <install lxde>. #lxde on
23:18<snogglethorpe>hmm, actually a 16GB drive seems plenty, bigger than my harddisks until laster year!
23:18<abrotman>i think my system (with no real personal data on it) is about 1.2GB or so

23:19<snogglethorpe>no swap then?
23:19<snogglethorpe>(seems a big dodgy on flash)
23:20<snogglethorpe>big => bit
23:20<abrotman>sure, i think i gave it a little swap
23:20<abrotman>you can also use a swap file
23:21<snogglethorpe>does the processor ever seem annoyingly slow?
23:22<abrotman>nope, i think it boots to GDM in about 15-20 seconds
23:22<snogglethorpe>i'm kinda looking for a machine I can use to do a bit hacking (er, the software kind) in a cafe or whatever
23:22<snogglethorpe>(so probably want to compile stuff, but don't expect blistering speed)
23:23<abrotman>snogglethorpe: i'd say the most important part is to try it first-hand so you can try the keyboard
23:23<snogglethorpe>i also hate laptops with hot spots underneat the needs/pad, so i wanna try to avoid that too
23:23<snogglethorpe>luckily there are lots of stores with big selectiosn near me

23:24<snogglethorpe>that sounds pretty tasty...
23:24<snogglethorpe>if you don't like it, just chuck it in the trash :)
23:24<abrotman>not quite that .. but i wouldn't feel bad giving it away
23:26<abrotman>snogglethorpe: .. is what it is

23:27*abrotman waves
23:27<newsense>anyone here using the rt73 wireless chipset ?
23:27<newsense>hi abrotman
23:27<dpkg>The Ralink RT73 USB chipset (RT2501USB/RT2571W) is supported by the next-generation driver (rt73usb), included in mainline kernels since 2.6.24. Firmware is required, ask me about <ralink firmware> to provide. For driver and firmware installation on Etch systems, see
23:27<abrotman>newsense: that was a goodbye wave :)
23:27<newsense>oh ok
23:27<newsense>you leaving or should i, lol
23:28<newsense>rt73 driver is buggy
23:28<newsense>was wondering if there was a workaround or alternative
23:28<newsense>rt73usb is bad too
23:28<snogglethorpe>ugh, the whole firmware thing is annoying
23:28<gsimmons>newsense: Didn't you say your problem was resolved with use of 2.6.31?
23:28<newsense>is the firmware the prolem ?
23:29<snogglethorpe>can't these manufs at least just keep the last bit of firmware in flash so you don't haveh to load anything?
23:29<newsense>gsimmons: it was stable for longer than with .30 but the problem occured again
23:29<gsimmons>newsense: Have you tried the trunk 2.6.32 kernel?
23:30<newsense>gsimmons: no i looked around and found no evidence of a fix with that kernel

23:37<newsense>is that a hmm you have an answer to my problem :)
23:37<snogglethorpe>i wonder, will netbooks that ship using android be more likely to use linux-friendly devices...
23:37<snogglethorpe>newsense: no of course
23:37<newsense>i didn't think so
23:37<snogglethorpe>but is the problem a missing driver, or missing firmware...?
23:37<newsense>both are in place but the interface goes down on its own
23:38<snogglethorpe>it just doesn't work?
23:38<snogglethorpe>that's way out of my league...
23:38<newsense>yeah same here
