00:42<sanduz2>gsimmons it looks like that parameter you told me to add isnt creating any sort of log file, i tried putting it in a different spot (i have it under the auto wlan0, iface wlan0 inet dhcp stuff in the config file), i also searched the whole system for a log file like the one you suggested and none exists

01:02<prem>hi all
01:03<prem>is debian having conio.h library..i searched but couldnt find a proper package in debian repo
01:03<prem>how to include conio.h library in a C progam..?
01:04<kmap>prem: No. That's Turbo C
01:04<kmap>prem: You need to port the program, say with the ncurses library
01:04-!-kutio [] has joined #debian
01:05<prem>kmap, sorry i didnt get you..porting the program means..?
01:06<prem>do i need to install turbo C in my debian..?
01:06<kmap>prem: You need to rewrite the programs using the libraries available for GNU/Linux.
01:06<prem>cant i go with gcc?
01:06<kmap>No. conio.h is MS-DOS-only
01:07<kmap> if you're interested in learning how to port
01:07<prem>ok kmap that the only way..where can i find equivalent commands for clrcsr , getch....
01:08<prem>thanks kmap..i will try and tell you
01:08<kmap>They are all present in ncurses. For example, the equivalents for your functions would be clear(), getch etc.
01:08-!-gbp [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
01:11<kmap>prem: ← again, from a web search.
01:12<prem>thanks kmap ..i think gconio will fit for my propgram
01:12<kmap>prem: Sure. But learning ncurses is also useful, so put it on your TODO list.
01:12<prem>yeah sure kmap

01:52<sanduz2>gsimmons i looked at some syslogs and was able to figure it out. it looks like i cannot disable SSID broadcast. i enabled it and it worked. thank you so much for all your help.
01:53<sanduz2>gsimmons do you happen to know a way to get it working with a disabled broadcast?

02:30<Guest378>ciao a tutti, si puo scaricare con questo software?
02:30<gsimmons>sanduz2: Right, its debug goes to syslog post-Lenny unless 'wpa-logfile' is specified. As described in wpasupplicant's README.Debian, you'll probably need to use 'wpa-ap-scan 1' and 'wpa-scan-ssid 1' to associate with a hidden SSID.

05:25<nickd>How does one persuade a daemon to leave behind a core file automatically? I've tried setting via ulimit in the init.d file (making sure /proc/sys/fs/suid_dumpable is 1 first) I've tried expressing limits for the user the daemon runs as in limits.conf, I can get a core once if I set the limit as root and then run the daemon in the for ground, but there doesn't seem to be a way of making sure that a given daemon will dump a core automatically...

05:40<detly>hi - can I ask about formatting and partitioning in here? (let's not get pedantic about the phrasing of that :P )
05:40<petemc>if you're using debian, sure
05:41<BdN3504>i can't get my computer to work with wol. it's a debian 5 lenny machine on a gigabyte ga 5ax mainboard with a typhoon nic using a 3com chipset. i did everything described here:
05:41<detly>of course :) basically, I have a single USB external HDD that I'd like to split as: half UDF and half truecrypt... is this possible, or does UDF require the entire device to be formatted?
05:42<BdN3504>it's the 3CR990-TX-97 [Typhoon 168-bit] chipset

05:43<jm_>UDF on a disk?
05:43<BdN3504>the "etherwake -Di <mac>" gives me a success message "Sendto worked ! 116." but the machine does not power on.
05:44<BdN3504>when executing ethtool eth1 it lists the wake-on status as "g"
05:44<detly>jm_ - sure... I figured that's the best way to be able to use it with multiple OS' with posix-type permissions
05:44<BdN3504>the nic is powered, even if the machine is switched off, the rx/tx LEDs are blinking
05:45<detly>correct me if the idea is fundamentally misguided...
05:46<BdN3504>the machine is in a network which uses the subnet does this affect etherwake/wakeonlan in any way?
05:46<jm_>detly: hmm it should work on a device file
05:46<detly>what should?
05:47<fredz>Is there a Debian equivalent of winSCP ?
05:47<perk>fredz, yes, scp
05:47<perk>fredz, or do you mean a graphical ui?
05:47<fredz>garphical please
05:47-!-afurlan [] has joined #debian
05:48<perk>fredz, in that case you can check out sshfs, which can mount fs over ssh, and then use your favourite file explorer ui app
05:48<BdN3504>or use mc
05:48<perk>np hth
05:48<perk>BdN3504, mc can do scp?
05:48<BdN3504>i think so
05:48<detly>bareftp might also fit the bill
05:49<pato>Hi, for some reasons i installed gnome. I have had installed fluxbox. Everything had been running ok until i uninstalled gnome. Now when i log in using xdm, i get only black screen with cursor on it. I thought it has something to do with alternatives so i ran update-alternatives and choose startfluxbox instead of metacity. But nothing has changed. I can use fluxbox only if i declare it in ~/.xsession. It would not be the worst choice for me, but it doesnt run oth

05:49<perk>BdN3504, it seems mc + sshfs or the option "Shell Link" is what people do
05:50<BdN3504>perk: do you know anything about wol?
05:50<perk>pato, xdm uses .xsession iirc
05:50<perk>BdN3504, how come?
05:50<petemc>filezilla does sftp
05:50<BdN3504>i need help, i can
05:50<jm_>pato: standard init script runs x-session-manager before x-window-manager, did you verify that?
05:50<BdN3504>not get it to work
05:51<perk>petemc, yeah. but isn't sshfs the more *nixy way? :-)
05:51<petemc>fredz: you can use sftp:// in nautilus or konqueror
05:51<BdN3504>i described the problem above, but i'll describe it again if you want.
05:51<petemc>i dont know about *nixy way
05:51<pato>jm_: not yet, i am gonna check it. just a moment please.
05:51<petemc>if someone wants a replacement for winscp, i dont think sshfs is that
05:52<jm_>secpanel - A graphical user interface for SSH and SCP
05:52<perk>wasn't there a discussion here yesterday that you should forget all about windows when you go *nix?
05:52<petemc>sounds like a stupid thing to say
05:52<perk>petemc, no, but it is an alternative
05:53<pato>/etc/alternatives/x-session-manager is symlink tu /usr/bin/lxterm.
05:54<perk>petemc, what is stupid to say?
05:54<petemc>forget all about windows..
05:55<perk>brilliant motivation
05:55<detly>jm_ - I haven't done any partitioning yet (the drive will be busy for a while yet), but do you know of the top of your head if fdisk lets me create a partition without specifying the type?
05:56<jm_>detly: it does, but it will assign default type, you can write whatever you want there anyway
05:56<detly>okay, right

05:57<detly>thanks :)
05:58-!-detly [~detly@] has left #debian [:)]
05:59<pato>jm_: ok, i just check manual pages of fluxbox. It is not correct symlink, there should be symlink to /usr/bin/fluxbox . Am i right?
06:00<pato>jm_: i mean symlink for x-session-manager .
06:00<jm_>pato: no, fluxbox is a window manager, not a session manager
06:00<jm_>so x-window-manager should link to it
06:00-!-Torsten_W [] has joined #debian
06:02<jm_>which it does if I udnerstood you correctly, but your problem is most likely you also have x-session-manager set and that one has higher priority (see /etc/X11/Xsession.d/50x11-common_determine-startup)
06:02<pato>jm_: ok, i got it. x-window-manager is symlink to /usr/bin/fluxbox . What should be symlinked to x-session-manager instead of /usr/bin/lxterm ?
06:04<jm_>pato: session managers are gnome, kde, icewm-session etc. I find it surprising lxterm sets that, it should be x-terminal-emulator

09:44<Tuplad>ComradeHaz: if I pull out my drives, I won't be able to boot into linux to make my usb stick...
09:44<ComradeHaz>oh, you're doing it like that
09:44<ComradeHaz>in which case ignore me totally :)
09:44<Tuplad>lol :p
09:44<ComradeHaz>(I just installed to my USB stick)
09:45<Tuplad>I've used unetbootin to make my usb bootable, yet when I reboot it doesn't boot, just goes straight to grub and loads my system. can I somehow point in grub to my usb stick to make it load by force so I can check if it works ? tried formatting as fat32 and ext3, neither work :(
09:45-!-erin [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:45<ComradeHaz>right, got ya...
09:45<Getty>after using unetbootin your stick is bootable <point>
09:45<ComradeHaz>try doing update-grub
09:45-!-liquidat [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
09:45<Getty>if you see grub starting your own system, then its booting your harddisc
09:45<Titan8990>Tuplad, sure your board supports USB boot? did you try to select it from the boot menu?
09:46<Titan8990>Tuplad, unetbootin does not use grub, it uses syslinux
09:46<Getty>mostly you didnt set the right bootorder, or... your system just cant boot by USB
09:46<Tuplad>Titan8990: I'm not saying it uses grub, I'm saying it completely ignores the usb stick and goes to my grub to load my system :p
09:46<Tuplad>Titan8990: I went to bios and selected usb as first boot device.
09:46<Getty>then it cant boot from that stick
09:47<ComradeHaz>Getty, what he's saying is his system seems to think the drive is non-bootable
09:47<Getty>there is no guarantee that every usb stick works for this, even tho they should, reality always s***s
09:47<ComradeHaz>He wants to clarify this by trying to chainload from grub
09:47-!-amphi [] has joined #debian
09:47<Getty>which doesnt change anything
09:47<ComradeHaz>well, he should be able to point grub at it
09:47<Getty>that problem has nothing todo with software, its a pure hardware problem
09:48<Getty>ComradeHaz: then you just started up another device by booting your harddrive, still doesnt say anything if the usb stick is bootable at all
09:48<ComradeHaz>He might have messed up the install

09:49<pattabi>my soundcard is not detected...

If you are just wanting to change the compilation options, ask me about <package recompile>, or see <uupdate> if sid is too old

12:13<Titan8990>well, 2nd two are right, the ones that say etch are not
12:14<SimonBS>Great. That's what I thought.
12:15<SimonBS>Titan8990, build-essential seems to still be giving an error, libevolution3.0-cil is not.
12:15<Titan8990>SimonBS, thats not an error, its just telling you that its already installed

12:16<SimonBS>Give me a second. I'll see if I can change my language and do a new pastebin

15:15<uldics>I have just installed a new SATA HDD and made few partitions on it. The purpose is storage of different stuff. I have seen (on Knoppix) some nice utility I dont know, which makes nice icons of the unmounted partitions on desktop. Those icons makes it easy to mount, unmount the partitions and shows the status (mounted or unmounted) with a little arrow. How do I do it in Debian? And can I make it so that it asks a password (for root) when I want to

16:40<debbyeah>how can i find out if my debian is 32 or 64 bit ?
16:40<debbyeah>i kinda forgot :D
16:40<zumbi>uname -m
16:41<debbyeah>is that 64bit ?
16:41<debbyeah>would it be normal... that a 32bit application wouldnt work then?
16:41<zumbi>32bit is called i?86
16:41<debbyeah>i tried installing shockvoice server... but i used their 32bit one
16:41<debbyeah>could that be the cause?
16:42<debbyeah>i get no errors from them :S it just goes from "server started" - and i can then ask it to stop it, and it tells me it isnt running
16:42<Pitxyoki>debbyeah, I think that 32 bit binaries may need compatibility libraries.
16:42<debbyeah>so i wonder if it could just be that the process dies
16:42<Pitxyoki>I'm not 100% sure, though.
16:42<debbyeah>well it runs through mono

16:43<debbyeah>if its not similar to wine, then as simulator, it would make all the sense in the world

16:43<debbyeah>but, my lack of mono isn't helping me :)
16:44-!-raphael_ [] has joined #debian
16:44<patrikf>x86_64 has the ability to run 32bit, with little-to-none-overhead-emulation by the processor.
16:44<debbyeah>so my problem should not derive from there then, but rather a shockwave issue?
16:44<patrikf>and afaik, .NET programs compile to a intermediary bytecode, so mono isn't an emulator, but an interpreter.

16:48<Pitxyoki>Or flash, which didn't have a 64-bit version until recently?
16:49-!-swo [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
16:49<Titan8990>Pitxyoki, i think that flash still lacks 64bit... it just has a 32bit wrapper around it IIRC
16:49<patrikf>Pitxyoki: the problem is whenever there needs to be a connection between 32bit and 64bit code
16:49<debbyeah>yup, it was the 32 bit incompatiblity
16:49<patrikf>Pitxyoki: such as a 64-bit kernel and a 32-bit proprietary kernel module
16:49<patrikf>Pitxyoki: or a 64-bit browser and a 32-bit plugin

16:50<Pitxyoki>That makes sense.

18:36<terinjokes>is it possible to change the package info in a deb file (i mistyped the provides and package fields)
18:38<nealshade>terinjokes, package info? i barley was able to get the package installed, so changin that info would take a miracle for me
18:38<locklace>nealshade: try "ifconfig eth0 up"
18:39<retrospectacus>what's the netstat flags to see what process is listening on a port?
18:39<locklace>nealshade: you can manually assign it an ip address with "ifconfig eth0 inet netmask" (for instance)
18:39<nealshade>locklace: oh, I forgot about that one
18:39<locklace>nealshade: if you want to get an ip address via dhcp you have to do things differently
18:39<nealshade>i will try that first, than i will try a manual address
18:40<terinjokes>nealshade: huh?
18:41<nealshade>my connection only has ipv6 not ipv4. that is why, my network is ipv4 only
