06:28<Kraven>I can't get pppoe running like I want it to in a initramfs. The PC runs normally 24/7 and automatically boots after a power outage, but because of a luks encrypted /home and /swap it stops while booting and waits for password. Because some of the programs running on startup have data in /home I thought it best to unlock those partitions during boot using ssh in initramfs
06:29<Kraven>I used a script for unlocking a encrypted root partition and from my local network I already get the partitions unlocked using ssh, but I want to be able to do this even from outside, so I tried getting pppoe running in the initramfs, too

06:31<Kraven>The internet connection already works, but I have different problems with iptables, name resolving and a python script I'm using to get the external IP to dyndns:
06:33<Kraven>The problems with iptables are not that serious. My normal firewall script and routing doesn't work, but I can still get a configuration where SSH would be available from the outside. Even though I would prefer to only allow SSH from the outside
06:33<seeS>could be a few things
06:33-!-svend [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
06:33-!-svend [] has joined #debian
06:33<Kraven>But I find it kind of strange, that name resolving doesn't work and perhaps that error is also cause for the failing of the python script
06:34<seeS>the iptables would be the autoloading stuff
06:34<seeS>for the name resolving stuff you might be able to stick them into /etc/hosts
06:35<seeS>nslookup forces you to use dns, while ping or something with use the resolver library

06:46-!-Piet [] has joined #debian
06:46<Kraven>Okay, autoloading modules is a good hint for the iptables problem and if I understand it correctly nslookup should be easier for the pc because it uses name resolving directly and not over the resolver library, so that should work even without the resolver library. /etc/hosts would be a workaround as long as the ip-address of the dyndns-servers doesn't change, but I still would have to enter every server probably needed. I think it would be way
06:46<Kraven>nicer, if the name resolving would work, and that should be the case without using /etc/hosts if I understand correctly
06:48<Kraven>But obviously nslookup uses some library or binary that isn't installed in the initramfs at the moment, but how can I find out, which one is missing?
06:48<seeS>what about ldd /usr/bin/nslookup
06:49<seeS>and turn on debugging or tracing
06:50<seeS>nslookup -debug will tell you what its doing

09:15<babilen>You compiled your own kernel and now have problems booting it?
09:16<kilelme>this kernel i have without kompiling
09:16<kilelme>i received from some one in there
09:17<babilen>someone on the internet gave you a kernel, you installed the package with 'dpkg -i' and you have problems booting now?
09:17<kilelme>before that i don't have problem
09:18<kilelme>i use this kernel for 4 month ago
09:18<babilen>Where do you downloaded the kernel package from?
09:18<snogglethorpe>what's the deal with "configure.lineno"? is it supposed to be there or is it a bug? is the user (using automake) responsible for deleting it etc... when cleaning?

10:42<tinkiwinki-sidux>hi dude
10:42<chaos>i had a question about 14 hours ago :)
10:42<chaos>i have 2 subnets connected to a debian box which also works as a router for the internet ... how do i create a virtual network so the boxes on the two separate subnets can see each other?
10:42<chaos>and plz no questions why i have two subnets ... i have them because i want them pasta
10:43<chaos>and he said something about me being incorrect
10:43-!-happydufus [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:43<chaos><peterS> when you say you have two 'subnets' it implies they are in separate IP ranges. I guess what you mean is two separate ethernet segments. although 'segment' is a misnomer in this day of bridges and switches
10:45<chaos>so to make it clear ..i have some NICS in my box .. in this case 3 are of concern .. 1 which connects to the adsl modem, 2 which connects to 192.168.1.* and the 3rd which is on 192.168.2.*

15:47<fabio_>ok I already asked on #debian-boot, but no answer
15:47<fabio_>so I'm pasting here
15:48<fabio_>[21:25] <fabio_> hello
15:48<fabio_>[21:25] <fabio_> I need help
15:48<fabio_>[21:25] <fabio_> I just installed squeeze with netinst
15:48<fabio_>[21:25] <fabio_> and installed grub to partition
15:48<fabio_>[21:26] <fabio_> and now it doesn't chainload
15:48<fabio_>[21:26] <fabio_> which kernel parameters do I need when trying to boot manually from that partition?
15:48<fabio_>[21:26] <fabio_> it always drops me to initrd shell
15:48<abrotman>anytihng special about your install like swraid or encrytped or lvm ?
15:49<fabio_>I just tried with the grub shell
15:49<fabio_>kernel vmlinuz
15:50<fabio_>initrd /initrd.img
15:50<fabio_>then boot
15:50<fabio_>and after few seconds it drops me to initrd shell
15:50<fabio_>am I missing some kernel options?
15:50<fabio_>do I have to specify init?
15:51<rik_>you have to specify the root parameter, for example root=/dev/sda1
15:52<fabio_>oh man thank you
15:52<fabio_>nothing else?
15:52<rik_>my kernel parameters are:
15:52<rik_>ro root=/dev/mapper/vg00-root
15:52<fabio_>thank you!
15:53<abrotman>that's for LVM though
15:53<fabio_>of course
15:53<fabio_>and once I'm in I can try to reinstall grub to partition with grub-install, right?
15:53<rik_>you can also use the debian-installer in rescue mode to do that
15:54<fabio_>ok thanks again! very helpful.

16:32<dpkg>[noipv6] To disable use of <IPv6> on Lenny and Etch: echo "install ipv6 /bin/true" >> /etc/modprobe.d/local.conf (and reboot for the changes to take effect). From Squeeze onwards, IPv6 is built into the kernel, add the kernel command line option "ipv6.disable=1" to your bootloader.
16:32<wnd>no problem
16:32<vook>you don't really need avahi, but this sounds like a DNS issue. Perhaps a different DNS server ?
16:32<rik_>lluvia: I would try disabling ipv6 (needs a reboot) to see if this helps

17:02<vook>eh, one could always try (killall5 -not now!) just to make sure a process isn't causing the issue. Don't use killall5 though unless you are ready to reboot.

17:23<rik_>i get times of 20ms

17:23<babilen>and what is the packet loss when you ping
17:25-!-ali3n [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:25<lluvia>I always thinked that packet loss were cause of the delay
17:27<rik_>lluvia: what are the average time and ttl values of the ping, the packet loss (statistics are shown when you stop the ping). please also post the output of /sbin/ifconfig
17:27<babilen>please provide some data ... 'ifconfig eth0' 'ping'
17:29<lluvia>ifconfig and ping 8.... ->
17:29<rik_>14% packet loss is a lot
17:30<lluvia>what means the ping's ttl?
17:31<rik_>the time to live of the packets. it starts at (I think) 254 and decreases with each hop (router) it passes
17:31<babilen>rik_: exactly
17:31<rik_>so if you have a ttl of 240 you're crossing about 14 hops before you reach your destination
17:32<rik_>but my ttl to is also 242 so 240 is not that high

17:58<rik_>and 'ls -l' /home on the server
17:58<lluvia_>only ping
17:58<Kraven>rik_/Deep6: Could it be some problem with file permissions? I mean normally you have directories of different users in /home. So it would make sense, that you can't read the directory of another user (no +x for other users)

17:59<rik_>lluvia_: you can specify a parameter under windows to keep on pinging, otherwise it only pings 3 times

20:14<babilen>linucks: or ask a specific question in here and we will see what we come up with :-D
20:15<linucks>babilen, i will try to ask a specific question and see what happens ;) give me two seconds to write it out :)

22:14<gsimmons>babilen: As only one network is involved, (managed mode, with no external wpa_supplicant configuration file) is probably more suitable.
22:15-!-incognito_ [] has joined #debian
22:15<babilen>that might be, but as soon as he wants to go somewhere else he will be happy to use the roaming mode ... but we should clarify that
22:15<incognito_>okay my interface looks like that

22:19<shawn_>iface defualt inet dhcp

22:22<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.
22:23<shawn__>each time i go to a new network ill have to setup a new eth correct?
22:24<babilen>shawn_: no, that's the configuration i gave you.
22:24<shawn__>i know but say if theres a different ssid i need
22:24<babilen>shawn_: read the documentation in /usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/ about roaming
22:24<shawn__>just add the ssid or do a new eth?
22:24<babilen>no ...
22:24-!-incognito_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:24<babilen>you said you don't need that
22:24<shawn__>i might if i go away but atm i dont lol
22:25-!-dvs [] has joined #debian
22:26<babilen>shawn_: figure it out for yourself then .. you want wpa_supplicant with roaming and external config (the /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf) in which you configure the networks you connect to. You can define an id_str in there which will trigger an interface in /etc/network/interfaces
22:27<babilen>shawn_: i gave you the /etc/network/interfaces for that already (if no id_str is given the interface used will be 'default')
22:27<shawn__>i dont have a .conf do i ?
22:28<shawn__>ya theres no .conf
22:28<babilen>you would then edit /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf and add new networks in there. You can also use wpa_cli or wpa_gui to edit that
22:28-!-kfank [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]

22:59<rex>rhythmbox looks better - i never used gtkpod
23:00<babilen>!alsa checklist
23:00<dpkg>1) add yourself to the 'audio' group (log out and log in again) 2) use alsamixer and unmute channels and raise levels (also try muting some channels) 3) arts or esound stopped? 4) OSS modules unloaded? 5) speakers on? 6) modprobe snd-pcm-oss 7) does "aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Noise.wav" work for root? Test your sound with aplay and a wav so codec issues don't confuse the situation. See also <list alsa users>.
