00:22<amitav>raylu: but it is failing at detecting cd-rom step. well even without cd-rom it should install, why does it need the cd-rom when I am using usb stick?

00:38<kareem>amitav & raylu are getting the no cdrom error when using unetbootin?
00:38<amitav>kareem: well I am
00:38<kareem>you are using an iso you downloaded previously i presume?
00:39<kareem>because i've gotten that error from time to time
00:39<kareem>and it had nothing to do with unetbootin
00:39<kareem>the same usb drive in my netbook would work, and in my notebook would not work
00:39<kareem>giving me the cd shinanigan error
00:39<amitav>kareem: i downloaded both unetbootin and the image tomorrow
00:40<ml|>you can try following this instead /msg dpkg usb install

04:40-!-freex [] has joined #debian
04:40<amitav>I have installed the minimal system and have a boot loader configured and partioning done.
04:41<Miova>did someone configure a recent kernel (above 2.6.31-rc5) to use in a netbook Asus 1005ha plesae ?
04:41<amitav>now, help me set up the pppoe connection so that I can proceed with rest of the install
04:42<gsimmons>dpkg: tell amitav -about pppoe
04:42-!-seeS [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
04:43<Miova>did you use before installation the command "modules=ppp-udeb" ?
04:44<amitav>Miova: no. I have used graphical installer.
04:44<Miova>not a good idea
04:44<Miova>try this ^^

04:45-!-ao2 [~u@2001:1418:117::1] has joined #debian
04:45<amitav>Miova: well I already have it installed. can't I install pppoe now
04:46<Miova>ok sorry, I didn't know the begining ^^
04:46<Miova>I just said "before the installation, enter the command "module=ppe-udeb"
04:47-!-mode/#debian [+l 358] by debhelper
04:47<amitav>Miova: yeah, but I have already installed it.
04:47<Miova>try a reinstall ?
04:47<Miova>for my opinion, much easier
04:48<Miova>hep, can you help me ?
04:48<Miova>someone please ?
04:48<Miova>did someone configure a recent kernel (above 2.6.31-rc5) to use in a netbook Asus 1005ha please ?
04:49<gsimmons>amitav: Either use pppoeconf (pppoeconf package) or read /usr/share/doc/ppp/* and configure manually.
04:50-!-arsmusic [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
04:50<amitav>gsimmons: well is that package available after the netinst image installation?
04:50<Miova>amitav: so now, you don't have the graphical mode
04:50-!-kvaneesh [~kvaneesh@] has joined #debian
04:51<amitav>Miova: no I can boot my new debian system to the command line
04:51-!-kvaneesh [~kvaneesh@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
04:52<Miova>I guess kernel is 2.6.26...
04:52<amitav>Miova: yes
04:53<Miova>you have the minimal system, so doing a reinstal not take a long time ...
04:54<Miova>the minimal system can even not do a tar command ...
04:54<gsimmons>amitav: Yes, pppoeconf is present on the amd64 and i386 5.0.3 netinst images.
04:54<amitav>gsimmons: thats positive signal
04:54<amitav>Miova: let me check
04:57-!-amitav_ [~amitav@] has joined #debian
04:57<amitav_>gsimmons: I haven't compiled a kernel yet
04:57-!-ehren [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
04:58<amitav_>Miova: should I append the modules=.. line to syslinux.cgf?
04:59<gsimmons>amitav_: I don't understand how that would be relevant to your current situation.
04:59<amitav_>gsimmons: well pppoeconf command is not found
05:00<gsimmons>Did you install the package providing the command?
05:00<amitav_>gsimmons: i guess not
05:01<gsimmons>It would be advisable in order to use the recommended utility.
05:02<amitav_>gsimmons: I am new to debian. so please tell me the command. apt-get pppoeconf says invalid operation
05:03-!-amitav [~amitav@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:03<gsimmons>amitav_: It is generally preferred to use aptitude over apt-get. "aptitude install pppoeconf" installs the requested package.
05:04<amitav_>gsimmons: thanks that worked. I guess I shall have to configure it now
05:05<amitav_>gsimmons: couldn't find any package whose name matched 'pppoeconf'
05:06-!-ebrosius_ [] has left #debian [Verlassend]
05:06-!-Meise [] has joined #debian
05:07<Miova>so ... do a reinstall ;)
05:08<amitav_>Miova: where do I specify the boot parameter?
05:09<ao2>wow, py2.6 in unstable at last...
05:10<Miova>in the beginning, when you choose between command line ou graphical install.
05:11<Miova>use the touch "tap" (left to the "Q" in qwerty mode)
05:12<Miova>and type module=ppe-udeb
05:13<amitav_>Miova: well i don't get to select between cli installer or graphical installer.
05:13<simonrvn>ao2: what?
05:13<amitav_>Miova: it takes me directly to the language choice
05:13<simonrvn>must've come in the latest dinstall... didn't see python get updated
05:13-!-rzyz2 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
05:15<Miova>this image you should have in the beginning :
05:15-!-henry-nicolas [] has joined #debian
05:15<Miova>(sorry if links are ban)
05:16<amitav_>Miova: I don't get this option. thats the point.
05:16<Miova>that wrote "press ENTER or TAB to edit a menu entry"
05:16<amitav_>Miova: may be thats because I used the vmlinuz and initrd.gz in the gtk folder
05:17<amitav_>Miova: there is no menu entry
05:17<simonrvn>ao2: um, in experimental still only
05:17<gsimmons>amitav_: Did you prepare your Debian installation image via UNetbootin?
05:17<henry-nicolas>Hi *, since today my Nagios setup doesn't work normally /debian lenny : I got no panel within the web and I got 404 errors when I click on links
05:17<simonrvn>ao2: um, nm that ... i missed it
05:17<amitav_>gsimmons: no
05:17<Miova>just download the netinstall cd and do it
05:17<amitav_>Miova: yeah, did that
05:18<Miova>but that's wrong then ?
05:18<amitav_>Miova: i don't know
05:18<Miova>(yep my english is preety ugly, I'm french ^^)
05:19<amitav_>Miova: doesn't matter. french have been very helpful to me.
05:20-!-Guest2497 is now known as dcraig
05:20<Miova>go get the netinstall cd 5.03 :
05:20<amitav_>Miova: have it
05:20-!-dcraig is now known as Guest2502
05:20<gsimmons>amitav_: ppp-udeb can alternatively be loaded via the "Load installer components from CD" option (at the medium debconf priority) within Debian-Installer.
05:21<amitav_>Miova: downloaded last night
05:21<Miova>beware if you don't using i386 architecture
05:21<amitav_>Miova: I know about archs
05:21<amitav_>gsimmons: tell me more about that
05:21-!-jpinx-eeepc [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
05:21<Miova>amitav: well, burn it/copy it in an USB device and boot on it ...
05:22<amitav_>can I specify modules=... after the "boot:" ?
05:22<Miova>yes, you can. You should type "modules=..." when you are in the beginning screen
05:23<amitav_>I stalled the device selection for a minute and am seeing the boot prompt for the first time.
05:23<Miova>does look like that ?
05:23<amitav_>Miova: it is asking for a kernel image
05:24<Miova>because you don't have copy same boot image and same netinstall ...
05:25<amitav_>Miova: no I do.
05:25<Miova>so i don't know/understand then ... :(
05:26<amitav_>Miova: may be I can't explain properly
05:26<Miova>did you use an CD or an usb device ?
05:26-!-seeS [] has joined #debian
05:26<amitav_>gsimmons: when selecting "load installer components" it is taking me to network configuration
05:26<amitav_>Miova: usb
05:27<Miova>you can't try with an cd-rw, do you ?
05:27<amitav_>Miova: no.
05:27<Miova>well ...
05:28<gsimmons>amitav_: You're required to adjust the debconf priority; select "Go Back" and choose "Change debconf priority" to adjust. You should then be able to manually select installer components as desired.

05:34-!-SiCuTDeUx [~axzelmari@] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
05:34<gsimmons>amitav_: Repeat the debconf adjustment process and select 'high'. Debian-Installer should take care of anything else related for your PPPoE configuration.

05:41<gsimmons>Miova: You can use 2.6.32 from unstable if you require a later kernel version than 2.6.31-rc5. More applicable support may be available from #debian-eeepc on this network.
05:42<Dro>Russian are?
05:43<Miova> are the last stable kernel :
05:43<Miova>how do I an update kernel from 2.6.26 to 2.6.32 ?

06:57<fred1>in my case, the use was transporting large files between multiple machines, where there was no need for protection against data loss if it was shutdown imporperly, becuase the dat in question was still stored where it came from
06:57<fred1>and the drive would be erased and rewritten again anyway to transfer something else

10:04<karls>catfive: Oh. What's your goal?
10:04<catfive>karls: also i think i did the xorg install wrong once, i have no xorg.conf but an XF86config
10:04-!-ledus [] has quit []
10:04<karls>Oh right. XF86 is the old X11 I think.
10:05<karls>You probably want to remove that old one and sudo apt-get install xorg
10:05-!-dark [] has quit []
10:05<catfive>the goal first all is to get a working xorg, and to skim off the unnecessary and potentially conflicting stuff that i may have installed in the process
10:06<catfive>karls: i did an xorg install, but i don't know what should be kept/removed
10:06<catfive>there are a shit ton of packages with x or x11 in the name....
10:06<gsimmons>Rovanion: That's correct, see Oliver Winker's Jan 03 post on the acx100-devel mailing list (depends on Linux 2.6.32). I can assist you with unencrypted/WEP usage with the existing acx driver, if you can provide further details regarding your installed firmware (e.g. acquisition source).
10:07<karls>catfive: Uhm :D you mean shitton of installed packages?

10:15<Lethalman>flower, enable bootlogd
10:15<flower>Lethalman: I did
10:15<catfive>karls: before i do that, how do i get a clean xorg.conf again?
10:15<flower>Lethalman: but what file to open? and how?
10:15<karls>You said you had XF86config?

10:15<catfive>karls: yes that is correct, but xorg parses it
10:16<karls>Did you run Xorg -configure?
10:16<catfive>XF86config makes a lot of references to the nvidia stuff, so i think i should start with a fresh one
10:17<catfive>wtf? sudo: xorg: command not found

10:18<Lethalman>flower, go to tty1 and scroll up
10:18<flower>Lethalman: how?
10:18<catfive>karls: why did it stick the xorg.conf in ~/me/xorg.conf insteax of /etc/X11
10:19<Lethalman>ctrl+f1 then ctrl+pageup (or shit+pageup I don't remember), then ctrl+tt7 to go back X
10:19<karls>catfive: probably because you wouldn't want to overwrite the old one in case the new one doesn't work.
10:19<flower>Lethalman: at boot time?
10:19<Lethalman>ehm sorry flower ctrl+alt+f1 to switch tty1
10:19<Lethalman>flower, no, now
10:19<karls>Just rename the on in X11 and cp the new one there. Then restart X

10:31<karls>Uhm. I actually don't know the answer to that as I haven't done that before (I usually trust aptitude :D)
10:31<cahoot>catfive: I meant the: 'how can i tell what is important and what isn't?'
10:32<catfive>cahoot: well for example right now karls just helped me get X going... and i'm almost CERTAIN when i installed X i used more packages than necessary... now maybe i'm just more anal than most about minimalism, but it bugs me that those unnecessary packages are installed!

12:17<xover>what is the fundamental difference between windows having virus and linux not?
12:18<xover>is it just a case of there are fewer virus written for linux?
12:19<cahoot>they also meet a harsher environment

12:20<SynrG>well, brute force it is, then. grep/find through my whole system for any references to 2.6.18 :p

13:51<dpkg>You can run X11 apps over an ssh connection so that neither <xhost> nor X TCP support are necessary. Enable X11Forwarding _on the remote server_ (/etc/ssh/sshd_config) and install xauth (lenny) or xbase-clients (etch) on both the client and the server. Then "ssh -X" from the client and run X apps on the remote machine. Authorisation is only given to your remote user to connect and $DISPLAY is set. Also ask me about <root x>.

15:35<zahari>here is the thing.. we have a couple of computers in a lab network and we use norton ghost to reimage them.. what I wanted to implement is just using the udp-sender command to multicast images to a lot of computers at the sam time...
15:35<zahari>what i was wondering is
15:35<zahari>lets say the sender starts multicasting
15:35<abrotman>zahari: go to #ubuntu on .. if they cannot help, try ##linux
15:36<zahari>and one machine starts receiving and the other one stars receiving after 5 minutes lets say
15:36<zahari>will that be a problem ...

18:28<babilen>adis_: Do you know what this "Expansion port 3" is used for? Docking Station?
18:28<mase_>so there is a pcmcia slot in the docking station?
18:28<babilen>or some connector-thingie
18:29<adis_>mm i offer you the capability to expand your hardware via docking or sohing else
18:30-!-aetheria [] has joined #debian
18:30<adis_>babilen : is that work only with docking station??
18:31<babilen>I just have used thinkpad docking stations and they work without a problem. No idea about hp ones ... You might want to google that :-D
18:31<babilen>adis_: I have no idea - What is "that" ?
18:32-!-eepica [~eepica@] has joined #debian
18:32<mase_>the support of linux mostly depend on what pcmcia-card you plug into the docking station;
18:32<adis_>expantion port 3 + that
18:32<adis_>expantion port 3 + that
18:32<adis_>expantion port 3 = that
18:33-!-afurlan_ [~afurlan@] has joined #debian
18:33<mase_>"we sell computer for $1000, now with 'expansion port 3'!!!" :D
18:33<babilen>I guess that the docking station is well supported (if explicit support is even needed) - Support for different PC Cards/PCMCIA cards depend on the specific card ..

18:38<babilen>dipponaught: Word of caution: Mixing Debian and Ubuntu *will* void your warranty and lead to headaches. You will lose support in either #debian and #ubuntu too
18:38<dipponaught>lol what warranty ;)
18:38<adis_>i have never tried to mix debian with ubuntu it is very different

18:39<adis_>so both distro have different packages . i can imagine what package are you missing in ubuntu?

18:40<Faz>Ive got a quesiton for you guys:) I am attempting to get the deluge plugin of flexget working. It requires python2.6 so i have set up a apt-pinning thing and installed python2.5 from sid (running squeeze as base install). But now it is asking for the python-twisted libraries for python2.6. Aptitude doesn't seem to be able to find such a package though. Any ideas?

18:41<dipponaught>babilen: well only apt-cross wants a crap load of packages and pinning seems easier
18:41<babilen>Faz: Which debian release do you use?
18:41<adis_>sam if you like coomand line im here
18:42<babilen>dipponaught: ok - good luck then. And yes it is "o=Debian" and "l=Debian"
18:42-!-Bucciarati [~buccia@] has joined #debian
18:42<babilen>Faz: Ok, I would suggest to run deluge in a virtualenv and install twisted + deluge in there
18:42<adis_>dipponaught: for a package like that you can do
18:42<dipponaught>babilen: thanks.
18:43<adis_>it isnt critical
18:43<sam_>adis command will do it too - I need to do it know and GUIs frustrate me - nothing works
18:43<Faz>babilen: deluge doesnt need it, just flexget. I have a manual build of flexget which apparently set up an virtualenv but how do i get debian to install the requied packages into it?
18:43<sam_>so I need to change from static IP to DHCP
18:44<babilen>Faz: You can just use pip to install the packages in the virtualenv

18:51<adis_>sam_ : here you can see how to handle almost every interface (it s short)
18:51<babilen>Faz: You might be able to install deluge using pip (or easy_install) - that will pull in all the dependencies and won't mess with your python install
18:51<Faz>babilen: i guess i should explain better? I have deluge and it is running fine. I have flexget and python2.6 running in my squeeze install

18:52<Faz>babilen: my only problem is that i cannot seem to get python-twisted installed through apt for python2.6
18:52<babilen>Faz: I don't use deluge and can't really help you with it's installation. *I* just think that it is easier *and* safer to install these *yet* unsupported packages within a virtualenv using the typical Python methods to do so
18:53<babilen>Faz: Just install twisted in the virtualenv or into your private site-packages directory then ...
18:54<babilen>Faz: python2.6 just arrived in unstable - Not all packages are ready yet.

20:12<abrotman>opticon: is that a question?
20:12<drbanzai>It DOES have a network card

20:13<DarkPurpose>babilen: he's fixed it now
20:13<abrotman>drbanzai: alternately .. you can get an adapter for the HDD and put it in a real machine, do the install and put it back in the laptop

20:16<rmann>Cuz I like organization and everything was working strange

21:12<cmyers>Hey all - I am having a really weird problem. I am unable to watch Hulu videos on my debian Squeeze systems. The site loads fine, but after it says "loading video..." it says "sorry, we are unable to steram this video, please check your internet connection and try again". I suspect it is a networking config problem because it happens to all hulu videos but they work fine on a windows VM running on the exact same machine.
21:12<cmyers>youtube videos and all other internet traffic seems to work fine.
21:13-!-AbsintheSyringe [~havoc@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:14<cmyers>also, it happens on both my laptop and my desktop (one is connected via a corporate lan, the other is via wireless lan on a different subnet), but they are both running squeeze.
21:14<cmyers>coworkers running different versions/distros report no problems.
21:14<TCW> <- grub fails to boot (complaining about sparse file support), does one know if it is reiser-fs specific?
21:15<streuner_>its *ALL* reiser-FS specific :-P
21:16<streuner_>Why the hell you are using Reiser-FS at all?
21:16<TCW>cmyers, link?
21:16<abrotman>cmyers: which flash are you using ?
21:16<TCW>streuner_, even on an english channel you always get things WRONG!
21:17<cmyers>TCW: you can just go to hulu and try to watch any video. is an example
21:17<streuner_>TCW: default in Debian is ext3, but i just use jfs :-)
21:17<cmyers>cmyers@cmyers:7 (18:17:26)] dpkg -l | grep -i flash

21:17<TCW>streuner_, I absolutely don't mind what you use!
21:18<streuner_>ok, "i dont care" good :-)
21:18<TCW>streuner_, and guess what? I use ext3!
21:18<cmyers>I don't think it is a problem with flash per say because it appears the flash widget works fine to brows videos and attempt to load them. If the flash widget were doing something weird like trying to use ipv6, or whatever, that might explain it
21:18-!-sney [] has joined #debian
21:18<cmyers>I already did a bunch of mucking around trying to disable ipv6 suspecting that was the problem
