00:00<sney>install os-prober and do update-grub, it should automatically add your windows install
00:00<hatta_>I'll give that a shot
00:01<hatta_>ah it found it, excellent

00:03<sney>JohninLex: any luck?
00:03-!-MeGaDeTH [~MeGaDeTH@] has quit []
00:03-!-stormy001 [] has joined #debian
00:03<JohninLex>yea I went 600673.coming looking
00:05<JohninLex>ok thats not helping
00:05<sney>if this is a laptop, there might be a switch to turn the wireless on and off... make sure it's on
00:06-!-stormy001 [] has quit []
00:06<JohninLex>well I am on the desktop working on the laptop(side by side)
00:06<sney>and the laptop is what you just put debian on?
00:07-!-vsayer [] has joined #debian
00:07-!-linac [~lin@] has joined #debian
00:07<JohninLex>yep I am sick and tired of the Ubuntu Problems
00:07<sney>haha, join the club
00:07<sney>we are much better than ubuntu
00:07<JohninLex>lets hope so
00:07<sney>sometimes not as easy right at the beginning, but I think it's a fair trade
00:08<JohninLex>this is not a huge problem but I do like to site in the living room every now and then.
00:08<sney>yeah I'm sure we can get it working
00:08<JohninLex>well I tried BSD and that wend no where
00:08<sney>even a brand new laptop is still possible to use wirelessly, it's just a question of how much you need to mess with it
00:08<raylu>running "lspci -v" as root will show which/whether a kernel driver is in use for your wireless card
00:08-!-Name1ess [] has joined #debian
00:08<JohninLex>all I ever culd get working was TWN
00:09<astronut>sney: it'll show up in lspci even without the switch
00:09<astronut>JohninLex not sney
00:09<astronut>anyway, mine doesn't show up w/ | grep net since it's Network not network
00:09<astronut>so try the grep -i net
00:09<astronut>you never told us if you did
00:09<sney>did you get anything for that other lspci command? if not I have a theory - is that a Toshiba laptop?
00:11-!-Amorphous [] has joined #debian
00:11-!-bsd [~bsd@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:11<JohninLex>opps I thought I posted that it was intel corp pro/wireles 2200BG [calexico2] Network Connection (rev 05)
00:12<sney>ah yes
00:12<raylu>that is... old...
00:12<astronut>hey, i used to have an intel 2200
00:12<JohninLex>and no it a hp, but I did have problems setting up the Toshiba a few years back, but that was atheros problem
00:12<sney>I've seen tons of those as dell-branded pcmcia cards
00:13<astronut>ipw2200 is the kernel module
00:13<astronut>ibm used to do a lot of those on thinkpads
00:13<astronut>it's easy, you just have to install a firmware
00:13-!-ehren [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:13<astronut>add non-free to your sources.list and install firmware-ipw2x00
00:13<sney>lately toshiba has been taking USB wireless cards and sticking them to the motherboard, so they don't show up in lspci. it makes sense because the usb wireless is literally tiny, but it's silly and annoying if you don't know what to look for
00:14<opticon>configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
00:14<sney>opticon: apt-get install build-essential
00:14<opticon>i thought debian shipped with c compiler
00:14<sney>not unless you install it ^^
00:15<JohninLex>Hint here please Non-DFSG
00:15<sney>JohninLex: context?
00:15<raylu>JohninLex: /etc/apt/sources.list
00:16<opticon>never thought i would need to compile from source but with instructions doesnt seem to bad
00:16<raylu>oh, nevermind.
00:16<sney>opticon: yah, it's easy.
00:16-!-mase_ [] has joined #debian
00:16<raylu>JohninLex: debian free software guidelines, i believe
00:16<sney>opticon: oh, but look at stow if you ever want to uninstall whatever it is you're building.
00:16<sney>!tell opticon about stow
00:18<sney>debian is unhappy that you're installing software that isn't completely open, but that's not your fault, it's intel's. as long as it installs don't worry about it
00:18*JohninLex is not the greatest in the terminal ok
00:20-!-john [] has joined #debian
00:20-!-JohninLex [] has left #debian [gone thank goodness, but not forever darn I know right]
00:20<opticon>checking for PACKAGE... configure: error: Package requirements (gtk+-2.0 >= 1.3.13) were not met:
00:20-!-mase [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:20<john>ok I am on the laptop
00:20<opticon>something else to install?
00:20<sney>opticon: when you see errors like that, you need -dev packages
00:20-!-john is now known as JohninLex
00:21<raylu>opticon: in this case, it's most likely libgtk2.0-dev
00:22<sney>that's the one
00:22<sney>JohninLex: via wireless?
00:22<JohninLex>no eth0
00:22<opticon>ok found it and installing
00:22-!-mase__ [] has joined #debian
00:24<sney>JohninLex: you installed the package astronut told you about?
00:24<JohninLex>sorry I must have missed that while I was getting xchat on this one to cut and paste
00:25-!-allu2 [] has joined #debian
00:25<sney>ok no rush
00:25<JohninLex>can you repost it please
00:25<sney>did you edit /etc/apt/sources.list ?
00:26-!-mase_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:26-!-xdzzz [] has joined #debian
00:26-!-xdzzz [] has quit []
00:27<JohninLex>can I do a paste
00:27<JohninLex>5-6 lines
00:27<sney>put it here:
00:28<opticon>it worked
00:28<sney>!win opticon
00:28<dpkg>Congratulations, opticon! You have won a one way ticket to Gaza!
00:29<opticon>source had the ./autoinstall thats why it was easy
00:29<ml|>checkinstall is also good :)
00:29<sney>JohninLex: ah. aptitude install nano, then nano /etc/apt/sources.list
00:30<opticon>what i installed was gadmin-httpd
00:30-!-edbian [~ed@] has joined #debian
00:31<opticon>but when i launch via ssh session im prompted with this sh: httpd: command not found
00:31<JohninLex>sney, can you give me the source list to add?
00:31<sney>ok, got apache?
00:32<sney>JohninLex: the first line should say something like deb main
00:32<opticon>been installed running fine for some time
00:32<sney>and what you should do is add this to the end of that line: non-free contrib
00:32<sney>and then save the file and aptitude update
00:32<sney>opticon: hmm, is the apache binary named something other than httpd? it might be a ./configure option for your gadmin thinger
00:33<opticon>installed apache during debian setup or at the end
00:33-!-edbian [~ed@] has quit []
00:33-!-ikkerus [] has joined #debian
00:33<sney>JohninLex: that's fine, you didn't need to put it on security but that won't have an effect
00:34<sney>now aptitude install firmware-ipw2x00
00:34<JohninLex>I didnt it was already it was already there
00:35<sney>oh huh, I guess the installer must have asked. well that makes it easier
00:36<opticon>debian5:~# gadmin-httpd
00:36<opticon>sh: httpd: command not found
00:36<opticon>chown: invalid user: `apache:apache'
00:36<opticon>Running command: touch /etc/httpd/passwords/passwords && chmod 600 /etc/httpd/passwords/passwords && chown apache:apache /etc/httpd/passwords/passwords
00:36<opticon>has failed.
00:36-!-opticon was kicked from #debian by debhelper [use the paster bot or #flood]
00:36<JohninLex>thats why I pasted it
00:36<sney>JohninLex: once the firmware is installed, it should just work.
00:37<JohninLex>because I did not think anyone would have believed me lol
00:37<sney>haha well as long as it works
00:37-!-opticon [~opticon@] has joined #debian
00:37<sney>opticon: :P
00:38<JohninLex>^opticon, ^
00:38<ravenbird>JohninLex: Have you tried ?
00:38<opticon>to much ehh
00:38<sney>opticon: that's what is for
00:38-!-xdzzz [] has joined #debian
00:38-!-xdzzz [] has quit []
00:39<sney>opticon: anyway, when building things from source, it often helps to do ./configure --help |less first
00:39<sney>because that way you can see all the options it offers for the build
00:39<JohninLex>ravenbird, nope I just found out about that page
00:39<ravenbird>JohninLex: I don't know, could you explain it?
00:39<opticon>ok ill remove and start over
00:39<sney>is that another bot
00:40<sney> is also helpful
00:41<JohninLex>ravenbird, ???
00:41<ravenbird>JohninLex: KCI error, or a problem with the Keyboard-Chair Interface.
00:41<JohninLex>yep a bot
00:42<opticon>ehh apt doesnt seem able to remove
00:43<sney>opticon: uh, yeah, apt can't remove things that apt didn't install
00:43<sney>that's what stow was for
00:43<JohninLex>sney, no wireless brb going to try a reboot ok and I will let you know
00:44<opticon>do the thing that sends message i closed it out when i was kicked

00:57<sney>yeah that's better than what I have
00:58<sney>until they shut you down, right
00:58-!-Torsten_W [] has joined #debian
00:58<JohninLex>there working on 30.o now
01:00<JohninLex>i was going to do a speakeasy speed test to show you how fast it was but I dont have java installed yet lol
01:00<astronut>there are flash ones around
01:00<astronut>anyway, i'm out
01:00*astronut &
01:00<JohninLex>night astronut
01:00<JohninLex>and again thanks for your help
01:01-!-ikkerus [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:02<JohninLex>ok thats strange no one for all package for debian
01:03<sney>one for all?
01:03<JohninLex>yea ubuntu-restricted
01:03<sney>hmm what is that usually
01:03<sney>flash and java and stuff?
01:03<JohninLex>it added java, video everyting in one small synaptic pkg
01:04-!-cuba33ci_ [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
01:04-!-mhash [~mhash@] has joined #debian
01:04<sney>oh, well all the same stuff is available in debian, just separate. that way if one part updates and the rest doesn't, you don't have to install the whole set all over again
01:05<JohninLex>yea I was looking for bits and pieces now
01:05<sney>anyway, for flash and java the packages are flashplugin-nonfree and sun-java6-jre
01:05<raylu>sney: it was merely a package that depended on the other pieces
01:06<raylu>a virtual package, i think
01:06<sney>ah, that makes more sense
01:06*sney hasn't used ubuntu since 2003 or so
01:07-!-jm_ [] has joined #debian

01:14-!-criticaL [] has joined #debian
01:15<criticaL>Guys, I wanted to start learn programming, is there java-script good for beginning or would anyone prefer another programming-language?
01:15<sney>they say ruby is pretty easy
01:16<sney>and you can do literally anything in python
01:16<sney>javascript isn't really a programming language, but java is
01:16<kilelme>javascript for web design most to effect
01:16-!-freealan [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
01:16<criticaL>i got some html basics, so i thaught i can bind some java script in html
01:17<kilelme>i suggest if you want learn programing choose c or c++
01:17<criticaL>than i will learn c or c++ maybe
01:17<criticaL>yes :)
01:17<criticaL>k thx i will take a look for ruby and python, its kind of interesting maybe..
01:18-!-Holborn [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
01:20<kilelme>wow .. maybe we can share what we learn
01:20<ravenbird>kilelme: I wish you would RTFM.

01:39<Name1ess>Is there a skype client for Debian?
01:40<sney>there's a plugin for pidgin
01:40<dpkg>[skype] a proprietary cross-platform VoIP program which Debian cannot distribute due to its restrictive license. Packages are available from or use the sources.list line "deb stable non-free". Not supported in #debian, consider using <ekiga>, <linphone> or <pidgin> instead.

01:42<Nemoder_>anyone able to watch streams with adobe's latest flash?
01:42<sney>nope, because I'm not in america
01:42*sney shakes fist
01:43<Nemoder_>well I am and I used to but it stopped working recently
01:43<sney>does youtube work normally?
01:44<Nemoder_>but hulu does some funkier things than youtube, just not sure if it's an flash problem or something else
01:44<metalqga>i found a solution for the sound probs I had:
01:45<opticon>sney tried going through the config but the default options in autoinstall looks fine to me so idunno
01:45<opticon>gadmin-httpd was the program but im done fooling with it
01:46<sney>what was it anyway, some kind of configuration gui?
01:46<opticon>its just a gui frontend for apache2
01:47<sney>debian's apache config setup would probably just confuse it anyway
01:47<opticon>i have apache setup working fine now but was looking for something to make management easier
01:48<Nemoder_>interesting, hulu's stand alone linux player works ok
01:49<sney>opticon: beware, things that make management easier for you often make exploits easier for others
01:49<sney>see: webmin
01:50<opticon>the system is behind my application proxy firewall only port 80 is web facing for debian

02:35<goodger>razz987a654: debian uses su, not sudo. type su, hit enter, type your root password, then you get a root shell
02:35<ml|>or what goodger said if you don't want to use sudo

02:36<kenyon>anybody know how to set the default program that opens a PDF in iceweasel? at the "what should iceweaseal do with this file?" dialog, normally "xpdf (default)" is selected, and I have to switch it to okular manually.

02:38<jm_>it should also show you "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" checkbox

02:39<ml|>yes on the bottom
02:39<kenyon>but I want it to still be "always ask", just have okular be selected by default in the dialog box. if I change that preference, then I get no dialog asking whether to open or save.
02:40<razz987a654>I am not sure I understand what you mean ml
02:41<razz987a654>I am ver why new to linux

02:54<kamal>where should I mount windows partitions?
02:54<jm_>kenyon: right
02:54<kenyon>that should probably be done by the okular package, like it is for evince
02:54<net>can i add with you?
02:54<jm_>kenyon: okular probably adds itself at the end of /etc/mailcap
02:55<jm_>kenyon: man mailcap mailcap.order
02:55<net>what's mean
02:56-!-oen [] has joined #debian
02:56<ml|>kamal: somewhere in /mnt/
02:56<kenyon>jm_: I think it's because it just lacks the x-pdf type; it actually puts an application/pdf type first in /etc/mailcap
02:56<kamal>ml|: okay
02:56<razz987a654>I first started of with ubuntu, used it for over six months, learnt the basics, like installing, partitioning, all the basic stuff. had lot of issues with flash was not happy, Karmic started crashing quite frequently.

12:26<sney`>reallove: well for starters you'll need the -dev packages since that's what your source package is looking for
12:27<reallove>libxml2-dev & libzzip-dev are installed too
12:28<xover>Question: How can I verify that a monitor and video card are support by X?
12:29<seanius>reallove: are you using the upstream tarball or the 5.2.12 source package?
12:30<reallove>was using the source package from
12:30<seanius>reallove: you mean the tarball from afaik they don't offer debian source packages
12:30<Jowi>xover, for Xorg: for kernel drivers use this:
12:30<mase>xover never heard a monitor was not supported. for graphics card you can check the drivers-apge on the manufactors web page; there should be a "supported"-list anywhere
12:31<mase>xover what card do you have?
12:31<shadow13>I also have a question but no need to hurry to answer it ( What Panel WOuld You Suggest For Debian? I have herd of GNUPanel any others that would be under the GPL?)
12:31<xover>Jowi: mase how do i determine which driver is in use?
12:31<reallove>seanius: right, not the debian package, but the tarball from
12:31<seanius>reallove: anyway, try putting some relevant deb-src lines in your sources.list to mirror whatever release you're running, apt-get update, and then apt-get build-dep php5
12:32<mase>xover you can read you Xorg.log.0
12:32<mase>xover or look into your xorg.conf

13:56<xover>do you think there is an argument to use linux only systems in a corporate environment that does not require windows specific applications?
13:57<xover>I have never seen linux networks in non IT companies before.
13:57<dr|z3d>xover: That's like asking if there's an argument for hungry people to go for a chinese.
13:58<dr|z3d>mail+office apps+web browser. That's a minumum requirement, which Linux more than satisfies.

14:00<Gathond>xover: that may be a feature as well:)
14:00<xover>there is no task bar for those users to kill firefox when it plays up.
14:00<Gathond>if they can't fix them, they can't break it

14:00<Gathond>at least unless you specifically choose a non windows like UI, which would probably be foolish
14:00<xover>to kill applications when they hang, its all command line stuff
14:01<Gathond>xover: no its not
14:01<Gathond>its just that non of those who knows the cmd line stuff bothers opening the task manager to scroll for the app then select it

16:03<QF>ok, so I installed input-utils, and input-events on the mouse device shows no activity
16:04<QF>i suppose this means it's a kernel driver issue
16:05<stroyan>QF: input-events expects to be run outside of the X server.

19:11<Flimzy>I have a file server running a 5x500gb RAID5 array. I recently moved, and upon booting the machine, found that 2 drives had fallen out of the array. I re-added them, and things seemed fine... an fsck was required--no surprise. But now every file larger than a few kb is corrupted. It's almost as if the two drives were re-inserted into the array in the wrong order or something. This shouldn't be possible, should it? What might have cause

19:39<interbird>it looks bad; possibly why files < 1k are ok is because the might be stored in the tail of another file; dunno if ext3 does that; reiser3 does; but it looks bad; why did you not run fsck with the -n flag first (after the move) ?

19:41<interbird>ah, so nothing is actually lost...
19:42<Flimzy>interbird: B/c I figured the problem was just that I had done an unclean shutdown or something, and a quick fsck would fix it.
19:42<kingsley>Is there a safe way to see if your swap partition can be enlarged on a live system?
19:42<Flimzy>interbird: The only thing I lost of value was about 5 years of vacation photos.
19:42<Flimzy>interbird: The rest was illegal movies and mp3s :)

19:44*dr|z3d winks.
19:44<interbird>kingsly: you could try parted; with that you can enlarge the swap if there is room; BUT you'll be latering your harddisk-layout and you would have to remount swap on the live-cd or reboot from it; Assuming als the disk-rearrangements work and you know what you are doing.

19:53<Flimzy>dr|z3d: Sorry... I should have specified... I'd like a *reliable* offsite backup :)
19:53<interbird>you see? now you know where to go on the bike with your usb-harddisk... to your family :-)
19:53<dr|z3d>16GB capacity drives are cheap as chips.. and they go bigger.. up to 64GB I think.
19:53<Flimzy>dr|z3d: NTM, something large enough to hold my important data without swapping disks 8 times.
19:53<dr|z3d>The backup is only as reliable as the backup operator.
19:53<dkr>Flimzy: I use rdiff-backup to my own geographicaly separated systems, :)
19:53<Flimzy>dkr: I could probably pull that off... using some work servers. My boss would probably agree to it.

22:41<sam_>ok thanks
22:41<sam_>i am giving it a try now
22:41<sney`>after you install os-prober you must update-grub

23:21<drbanzai>Is there anyway to run a BOOTP server on a network with an existing DHCP server?

23:27<twb>drbanzai: BOOTP *is* DHCP
23:28<drbanzai>Hmmm...ok...How about a tftp server then? On a box other then the DHCP server
23:28<twb>You can run a TFTP server anywhere.
23:29<twb>But if you want to netboot clients, they must either be hardcoded to use that TFTP server's IP address, or your DHCP server must include the "next-server" datum in its DHCPACK.
23:29<drbanzai>twb, Ahhh, ok thanks!
23:30<twb>Hint: try describing the end goal, not an intermediary goal.

23:32<drbanzai>twb, Ok, I'm trying to install Debian on a laptop with 16mb ram, and no cd-rom. I was hoping to boot off the network with a rom-o-matic floppy disk.
23:32<twb>drbanzai: can it boot from USB?
23:32<drbanzai>twb, It has no usb
23:33<twb>Does its NIC have a PXE ROM?
23:33<twb>Then how do you intend to netboot?
23:33<drbanzai>It was my understanding that I could do so with a rom-o-matic boot floppy
23:34<twb>Oh, you can boot from a floppy.
23:34-!-jscinoz [] has joined #debian
23:34<twb>I would normally use gPXE, but I don't know if it fits on a floppy.
23:34<twb>Ah, rom-o-matic is a wrapper or something for gPXE
23:35<drbanzai>And then I still need to talk my main Ubuntu box into being a server for it to boot from.
23:35<twb>drbanzai: on the Ubuntu box, you just need to apt-get install thingy...
23:36<twb>sudo aptitude install di-netboot-assistant

23:37<adb>drbanzai, hm, 16mb ram it's so... low, try sarge on it , sarge boot from floppies
23:37<drbanzai>adb, My research indicated that woody was the newest that would install from floppies

23:43<twb>Oops, because I'm passing the ramdisk as a kernel
23:43<twb>drbanzai: OK, in my bogus initial test, 16MB was not enough to load the Lenny netboot kernel and ramdisk
23:44<twb>Oops, I did -m16 instead of -m16M
23:44<twb>Nope, it still doesn't work.

23:47<drbanzai>twb, Ok, well the closest I've gotten to getting it working, was to remove the HD from the laptop, connect it to my main box by usb, trick it into showing up as a real drive in a virtual machine, and installing that way. :)
23:48<drbanzai>twb, But now I can't get my pcmcia network card to work.
23:48<twb>drbanzai: yes, that might work.
23:49<twb>drbanzai: if this is for production use, you'd be better off paying a couple of hundred bucks for a current machine.
23:49<drbanzai>No, it's for bench marking some micro controller code, for fun and curiosity.

23:59<adb>drbanzai, aranym can emulate a slow cpu (motorola) ..
23:59<twb>adb: but does it emulate it at a slow speed?
