00:07-!-KingKong2009 [] has joined #debian
00:07<PhorceP>it's all lvm though...not sure how to mount that from a rescue distro...
00:08<PhorceP>I suppose with a rescue distro that uses grub 2?
00:09<simonrvn>the install cd will have it... just gotta do it via expert mode and install the lvm installer module and run vgchange -ay to activate the lvm

04:32<Supaplex>hans: I think this channel is logged online in a few places.
04:32<Gathond>your client is likely to keep a log as well
04:33<hans>i guess so, but where and how to get to it ?
04:33<r>good morning, good evening, good day
04:34<Supaplex>greetings you pirate

04:39<Supaplex>hans: I scrolled all the way back in my /lastlog, and did a google search of about 10 words in quotes.
04:40<Supaplex>the older the /lastlog, the more likely it is to be in the index. :)

04:48<vir182>hi all. aptitude shows me URLs in the different package descriptions. when i hove my mouse over it the are getting underline. but i cant select (copy) those URLs with the mouse. is there any way i can tell the system to open the URL with my preferred browser (or copy the URL)?
04:48-!-pieter-online [] has joined #debian
04:49<olet>vir182: try holding down shift when you click it
04:49<vir182>olet: nothing happens when i hold down shift and click the URL
04:50<olet>then try selecting it that way to copy it
04:50<vir182>olet: damn, yeah, selecting works now with shift down
04:51<vir182>olet: thx. i wonder why they change the semantics of the console
04:51-!-D-HUND [] has joined #debian
04:51<olet>well they don't but aptitude takes over mouse input and you can ignore that with holding shift down
04:52<olet>dunno why clicking it doesn't work though
04:52<olet>but well i'm not using such an advanced terminal that does underlining and such
04:52-!-dipankar__ [~dipankar@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
04:52<vir182>olet: it is as i havent configured something right - meaing aptitude is not "connected to my standard browser"
04:53<vir182>olet: thx you anway. that's the workaround i needed

05:37<NewDebian>Hi all I am new to Linux, and I have IBM xseries 255 8586-6rx and I want to kmow which releasr of debian to choose for it, and where can I find its driver on Debian, can anyone help me pleasr?
05:39<wnd>I wouldn't choose anything but stable for a server
05:39-!-dipankar__ [~dipankar@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
05:40-!-dipankar__ [~dipankar@] has joined #debian
05:40<NewDebian>and what is the stable one recommended for my server?
05:41-!-Worf_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
05:42<dpkg>[stable] The status of a Debian release when no packages will be added or new versions introduced, and changes will only fix security issues and critical bugs. Packages can be removed in rare circumstances. The current stable version of Debian is Lenny (5.0); ask me about <releases>. Security bugs are fixed in stable by backporting the fix to the current version (ask me about <security backports>).
05:43<NewDebian>and what about the driver for my server?
05:43-!-dipankar__ [~dipankar@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
05:43<wnd>I'm not sure what you mean
05:43-!-dipankar__ [~dipankar@] has joined #debian
05:44<wnd>if that's something (ibm) server specific then it's out of my league
05:45<NewDebian>I mean scsi , network, display drivers for the server(it is an old server) is it easy to find?

05:46<NewDebian>display is Ari rage xl pci 8mb?
05:46<wnd>debian's stock kernel comes with comprehensive set of modules so you may not need to worry about the drivers at all
05:46-!-dipankar__ [~dipankar@] has joined #debian
05:46<xxx>test 2
05:46<dpkg>TIAS is "Try It And See".
05:46<valdyn>NewDebian: ^^
05:47<musca>NewDebian: Drivers are in general integrated into the Kernel, older hardware works better than newest
05:47<dpkg>Test failed.
05:48<musca>some devices need non-free firmware, e.g. broadcom NICs
05:48<NewDebian>network card IBM NetXtreme Gigabit and IBM server raid? I think if they are old then it is east to find in current realse correct?
05:49<valdyn>NewDebian: in linux you generally dont "find" drivers, you just expect 99% of hardware to work automagically
05:49<valdyn>NewDebian: for you this means: get the debian installer and only ask about drivers once something does not work.
05:49<musca>choose Deban 5.0 Lenny (aka stable)

05:51<valdyn>NewDebian: are you new to computers too?
05:52<NewDebian>no I am new to Linux
05:52<valdyn>NewDebian: how are we supposed to know what "your SQL" is ?
05:52-!-dipankar__ [~dipankar@] has joined #debian
05:52<valdyn>NewDebian: sql is a query language spec, its not something computers can operate on
05:52<NewDebian>I mean mysql db? sorry for the misunderstanding
05:53<valdyn>NewDebian: debian ships mysql
05:54<musca>postgres can be a good choice, too
05:54<NewDebian>so it is included in the stable release download?
05:54<valdyn>NewDebian: debian has everything you need, dont look elsewhere *unless* you *know* that debian does not have it
05:54<valdyn>( because using debian-provided packages is vastly easier to handle than 3rd party stuff )

05:57<NewDebian>thank you all for your help
05:57<c>hi guys
05:57<EmleyMoor>What's considered to be the "right" way to temporarily disabel gdm on a system?
05:57<c>I am trying t install matlab in debian and got the follwoing error
05:57<dpkg>Debian does not use a specific runlevel for graphical display managers by default. Just remove the dm package(s) with "aptitude remove xdm kdm wdm gdm pdm slim". "update-rc.d -f xdm remove" and friends will also disable the dm until a package update is installed and the runlevel symlinks are restored. NEWSFLASH! echo "false" >/etc/X11/default-display-manager, or a temporary solution is to hit ctl-alt-fN to get to a console.
05:58<valdyn>EmleyMoor: ^^
05:58<c>Error while loading shared library Cannot open shared object file. No such file or directory.
05:58<dpkg>*** NEWS FLASH! *** Your box does not come with every app, tool and utility known to debiankind installed already. If you find that the program you've been told to use isn't there, install it. Also ask me about <search>. If someone suggests an application to you, it's highly likely that it's available via apt-get or aptitude.
05:58<valdyn>c: ^^
05:58<c>I installed the yum and tried to installed the package requried but it couldn't find the packge
05:59<valdyn>c: yum? in debian?
05:59<valdyn>c: what the fuck?
05:59<c>i am a beginner, don't kill me if do stupid things
05:59<EmleyMoor>yum? YUCK!

06:00<valdyn>c: dont mess with rpm files, they are not for debian
06:00<c>because i am fucking stupid
06:01<valdyn>c: no, thats not what i said
06:01<musca>c: you'd better follow a debian-howto than an opensuse-howto
06:01<valdyn>c: "apt-cache search libxp" to search for packages named like this
06:01<c>then how can i get matlab running on my pc?
06:01<EmleyMoor>You need to install whichever Debian package has the missing file
06:01<valdyn>c: and with some wild guessing you get to "apt-get install libxp6"
06:02<valdyn>!tell c -about search
06:02<c>first I am removing yum
06:02<valdyn>c: how did you install yum?
06:03<valdyn>c: what did you actually successfully instal with yum?

08:31<fnmueller>jesperj: all you have to do is configure grub properly
08:32<guff>@jesperj: A better option is probably to install the LUKS support packages into the original system, partition the second drive how you want it and mount it somewhere, then rsync everything across (i.e. basically just image the original install). Then you can boot either one to your hearts content once you set up crypttab.

08:33<fnmueller>guff: well, it is better, but harder to achieve
08:33<jesperj>yes it does sound a bit harder... but maybe it is worth it
08:35<guff>@jesperj: One thing you could do is practise a few times in Virtualbox/QEMU/VMware/etc. When I first used filesystem encryption, I spent some time just trying it under virtualisation (where I can't break anything), then you'll be able to form your own method that works for how you think.
08:36<guff>In fact, for every major change I do, I tend to try it under virtualisation a few times just to be sure I know what I'm doing and what the results will be.
08:36<jesperj>Im not sure I understand that process fully. installing LUKS and partition the target drive is understood. But I need to learn about crypttab to understand how to dualboot into it I guess.

08:51<guff>@c36pop: 'dpkg-reconfigure console-data' should give you some options for setting up the console
08:51<dpkg>To change your console keymap, run "dpkg-reconfigure console-data". To change your X keymap, read "man xmodmap", or ask me about <drxx> or use kcontrol, gnome-control-center or similar. For setting up X keymaps, also check out xkeycaps and xev, or ask me about <multimedia keys>. In console you can also use "loadkeys" for once-only/temporary adjustments.

08:59<c36pop>ok i ll link it now thanks then :)
09:00<guff>@c36pop: If that doesn't fix it, then I haven't a clue, so lets hope! :P
09:00<c36pop>the problem is i have my debian for several years now always in testing so sometimes some feature gets broken
09:01-!-phyrrus [] has joined #debian
09:01<c36pop>@guff: and for the sound :) when gnome starts, souds is always muted , do you have a clue for that :)
09:01<guff>@c36pop: I used to have the same problem. I finally gave in and test stuff in chroots or virtualisation.
09:03<guff>@c36pop: It'll either be the Gnome mixer applet muting when you log in, or you're not running the alsa-utils init.d script on bootup and shutdown (it saves and restores volume levels).

09:05-!-eeeuser [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:06<c36pop>i mean is there a save way to do it ?
09:06<guff>c36pop: do you compile your own using the Debian scripts to make your own .deb, or do you compile and install it manually?
09:07<c36pop>make-kpkg -initrd buildpackage --config menuconfig

09:08<guff>@c36pop: Hmm.. Everything should "Just Work" then.. How far does it get in the boot process before it stops?
09:09<c36pop>@guff : i really do not remember it was 2 - 3 years ago , and it is just more like a fear of loosing everything :) maybe it was ever a simple menu.msy misconfiguration
09:09-!-zkab [] has left #debian []
09:10<c36pop>@guff ; thanks indeed hope i ll could help one day
09:10<guff>@c36pop: Fair enough. I must admit, I stopped compiling my own kernels years ago (out of laziness), but from what I remember, using make-kpkg just sorted it all out for me. Ach well.

11:42<vhann>z3r0: Do you know what the device name is? (i.e. /dev/sda) ?
11:42<z3r0>Yeah, it's /dev/hda2
11:43<vhann>z3r0: That's a partition device, not a hard disk one
11:43<z3r0>Idk then it's on te primary IDE and it's the slave
11:43<vhann>z3r0: Do you want to format a hdd or only a partition?
11:44<OdyX>note that "formatting" can also be meant as "getting rid of what's on the disk" rather than "getting a new partition"
11:44<OdyX>hda2 is not the slave… it's the second partition of the master…
11:44<OdyX>hda is the master, hdb is the slave

12:37<ga_bash>abrotman, sorry but what do you mean by about:plugins? is there a cmd to check the version?
12:37<abrotman>ga_bash: that's in the browser
12:39<ga_bash>abrotman, In plugins section of my browser(iceweasel) I am not able to find any flash plugins.
12:40<abrotman>!tell ga_bash about adobe flash
12:41<ga_bash>abrotman, then its possibly not in my browser.
12:41<abrotman>see what the bot told you about how to install adobe flash

12:48<abrotman>ga_bash: there are some free flash alternatives that sometimes work with youtube .. you may have installed one of those
12:49<abrotman>dechang: you were also on freenode before .. and i don't think you rebooted
12:49<ga_bash>abrotman, yes the first cd of debian might have contained those packages and I would have installed them accidently
12:49<dechang>well, i just login back
12:49<abrotman>no, the first CD doesn't not contain flash ..
12:50<dechang>so, what is the key press just now ? abrotman , i lost all the irc screen

17:14<dechang>any other tools lighter than webmin?
17:16<dpkg>i guess webmin is a lame web-based interface for unsafe system administration for Unix. Check it out at Remember, dondelelcaro *hates* webmin. "i'd rather sit on the floor shoving table knives into live electrical outlets than run webmin on an exposed server." See about the removal. Don't use their .debs, they are of extremely poor quality.

19:22<abrotman>Holborn: so does rhythmbox
19:22<abrotman>maybe have him try a console mp3 player instead of something tied to X/gnome
19:23<ml|>because is what i prefer and most have dmm anyways
19:23<abrotman>i don't
19:23<Holborn>rhythmbox use gstreamer too

Don't ask if you can ask, if anyone uses it, or pick one person to ask. We're all volunteers; make it easy for us to help you.

21:49<_2>i found the root cause of the boot issue i was asking about yesterday. "no link in /dev/disk/by-uuid/ for the usbstick" it seems that the system can handel partitionless internal disks (ide/scsi/sata) but can't seem to handle external partitionless (usb in particular) creating a partition and migrating to there fixed my boot issue. ;/
21:52<_2>some how that seems backwards, that i can cleanly boot a partitionless internal disk with grub2/debian etch, but can't do the same with and external (usb) grub2 debian etch by root=UUID=*
