00:01<ml|>the dev will set you straight if you are wrong, but I file a bug when I'm pretty certain on the cause or try to atleast
00:02<ml|>also checking bts before filing a new bug report

00:07<cesurasean>ml|, my vbox doesn't. :(
00:09<ml|>cesurasean: you can look thru bts for any similar issue and/or start from scratch
00:11<ml|>also might be of help
00:11-!-Adaniel [] has joined #debian
00:11<cesurasean>it seems this may be the reason the machine was so cheap.
00:11<cesurasean>it's a compaq prolient, with a weird bios unlike most machines.
00:12<ml|>cesurasean: and what did you mean by ... < cesurasean> for some odd reason the computer locked up without virtualbox, i believe. :/
00:12<cesurasean>i think this is hardware related, honestly.
00:12<twb>cesurasean: that's a pretty old series
00:12<twb>cesurasean: are you sure it has the grunt to virtualize anything?
00:12<cesurasean>dual p3's
00:12<cesurasean>twb, no.
00:12<twb>For virtualization it'd be better to just go out and buy something that can do hardware virtualization
00:13<ml|>oh, maybe that is the cause
00:13<cesurasean>compaq proliant DL360
00:13<sney`>it's just a modified intel bios with a special splash
00:13-!-mase__ [] has joined #debian
00:13<sney`>compaq dl360 used to be a great workhorse
00:13<twb>Intel don't make BIOSes
00:13<sney`>it's from the days before virtualization
00:14<cesurasean>sney`, what about the windows boot disks it requires. ive read that was an odd feature.
00:14<Nemoder>you might want to file a bug report anyway, it can be helpful for anyone else crazy enough to run that hardware :)
00:14<ml|>yes and use vbox, kvm, whatever that supports hardware virtualization
00:14-!-brendan_ [] has quit [Quit: brendan_]
00:14<sney`>excuse me, whatever bios intel used in the reference design, compaq changed it moderately and put their splash on
00:14<sney`>that's what they do.
00:14<sney`>cesurasean: what, the smartstart or whatever? iirc that is optional
00:15-!-Amorphous [] has joined #debian
00:15<ml|>companies tend to do that
00:15<cesurasean>yes, smartstart.
00:15<cesurasean>I was afraid that is the reason it won't work. :/
00:15<sney`>later smartstart was just a linux livecd
00:15<cesurasean>probably why it was so cheap, too.
00:15<sney`>earlier smartstart is a collection of utilities for setting the raid arrays and whatnot
00:15<ml|>you get what you pay for ;)
00:16<sney`>I can't remember which generation the dl360 came with
00:16<sney`>the reason for it being cheap, on the other hand, is because it's old.
00:16-!-allu2 [] has joined #debian
00:16<cesurasean>why does old matter much?
00:16<sney`>lacks the oomph for modern applications. but it'd make a great fileserver.
00:16<cesurasean>whoever sold it to me wasn't very smart about pricing it.
00:17<sney`>last time I deployed one of those was in 2006, and even then it was getting kinda crusty. that was also as a file server.
00:17<cesurasean>it's still a powerful 1U
00:17-!-mase_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:17<ml|>cesurasean: why about the pricing but?
00:17<sney`>how much did you pay for it?
00:17<sney`>that is a good deal.
00:18<cesurasean>ebay rocks.
00:18<cesurasean>without HD's, of course.
00:18<sney`>just don't expect it to be a modern server, because it isn't
00:18<cesurasean>hd's cost me 50 as well.
00:18<ml|>yeah 50 is not bad, now get something more up to date ;)
00:18<sney`>I think they stopped making the white-front proliants in 2002 or so
00:18<cesurasean>i have better machines than this..
00:19<ml|>then use vbox on them
00:19<sney`>dl360 spans both bezel designs so I'm guessing yours is about 7 years old.
00:19<sney`>just use it for software tests and compiles and file hosting
00:19<cesurasean>sney`, i need to see how old it is. it's amazing they last so long.
00:19<sney`>gimme the model number
00:20<sney`>6 digits - 3 digits (usually 001)
00:20*ml| loves his T23 from the late 90's :)
00:20<sney`>oh yeah the t23 was bombproof
00:20<twb>Ugh. Why does cups use gif images for its buttons
00:20<twb>The package is full of localized .gif files
00:21<ml|>sney`: is ;)
00:21<sney`>heh fair enough
00:21<sney`>that's a serial number but close enough
00:22<sney`>ooh, tualatin P3s. nice.
00:22<cesurasean>yeah that's all i can get to right now. :(
00:22<ml|>hopefully my T23 will last me another ~10 years
00:23<cesurasean>how long do you think mine will last?
00:23<cesurasean>it's not really not that nice of a machine
00:24-!-jcwu [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:24<cesurasean>powerful, maybe. poorly designed though.
00:24<ml|>depends what your purpose will be for it and if the hardware does not fail
00:24<cesurasean>this one has some numbers wrote on it, etc, probably tons of usage.
00:24<sney`>looks like 2002 or 2003. to get the actual build date you'll have to flip it over and look at the stickers. there'll also be manufacturing dates on the motherboard pcb
00:25<cesurasean>im amazed it's actually running.
00:25<sney`>they're built to last

00:26<sney`>I found an old PPro server in a datacenter once, running netware and plugged into nothing
00:26<Adaniel>Hi fellows I have a Intel T5200 Processor with Intel® 64 architecture feature, would you be so kind to help on which Debian pack I need to install (AMD64, x386 or Ia64)?
00:26<TCW>cesurasean, apart from the harddisk, I guess the rest can last for ages
00:26-!-altaira [~Edith@] has joined #debian
00:26<sney`>Adaniel: i386 and amd64 will both work, amd64 is recommended to utilize the 64-bit cpu features and high memory limits
00:26*allu2 has debian running on pentium 2 300mhz ~360mb ram...
00:26<TCW>T5200? What kind of CPU is that?
00:27<sney`>fits with their new desktop naming scheme
00:27<sney`>probably new
00:27<TCW>i7 / i5 is out again?
00:27-!-rick [] has joined #debian
00:27<sney`>no idea
00:28<altaira>Hi there. I've just finished network installing squeeze. How can I fetch the remaining packages?
00:28<Adaniel>Its a Intel Core2Duo as detailed
00:28<allu2>btw what is version number of squeeze?
00:29<ml|>Adaniel: if you are not going to use more than ~3.3gb of ram or do dev work I'd use i386
00:29-!-rick [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:29<TCW>Adaniel, ahh... thanks
00:29<TCW>ml|, altaira wants to know, not Adaniel :)
00:29<sney`>no he had it right
00:30<ml|>TCW: look again ;)
00:30<sney`>altaira: tasksel
00:30<altaira>sney: I've already tried tasksel I guess I need to set up the repositories
00:31<TCW>ml|, oops... how could that happen? *blushes*
00:31<ml|>it happens np
00:31<sney`>altaira: yep, I figured you already had
00:31<TCW>altaira, what are rhe "remaining packages"?
00:31<ml|>yeah ^
00:31<TCW>the even
00:32<altaira>sney: where can I find the URL's?
00:32<sney`>he was in here earlier, I figure he means the desktop environment stuff
00:33<TCW>sney`, as in apt-get install gnome?
00:33<ml|>that should be fine with installed sources.list
00:33<sney`>installed sources.list doesn't include network sources if no network was detected during install
00:34<altaira>sney: :)
00:34<dpkg>The list of repositories for installing packages is /etc/apt/sources.list and has lines like "deb http://ftp.<cc> lenny main" and "deb lenny/updates main" where <cc> is your country code. Be sure to run "aptitude update" after editing sources.list. Also see <mirrors> <apt-spy> <apt-setup> <lenny security> <testing security> "man sources.list" and /usr/share/doc/apt/examples/sources.list
00:34<Adaniel>What's means IA64 arquitecture regarding Debian packs, because I tought that will be in my case...
00:34<dpkg>[ia64] (Intel Architecture-64), a 64-bit processor architecture developed in cooperation by Intel and Hewlett-Packard, implemented by processors such as Itanium and Itanium 2. The goal of Itanium was to produce a "post-RISC era" arch using EPIC. See -- if your CPU is opteron/athlon64/turion/sempron/xeon/em64t/pentium/core2duo/core*, then it is NOT ia64, it's <amd64>.
00:34<sney`>Adaniel: ia64 is for itanium, which is an older cpu architecture used for servers. it is unrelated to your computer and would not work if you tried it.
00:35<ml|>< altaira> Hi there. I've just finished network installing squeeze., then ?
00:36<sney`>as i recall, he installed the base system from the netinst disc, because netinst doesn't support wpa
00:36<Adaniel>Oh Thank You very much to clarify me regarding it... best regards
00:36<ml|>ok, but that's not what he just said tho ;)
00:37<sney`>fair enough. I'm just working from memory and the understanding that his english might be a little shaky
00:37-!-allu2 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:37<TCW>Adaniel, IA64 == Itanium, a complete new 64bit redisign, amd64 is the more casual approuch to 64bit and a complete different story. To make it short, IA64 was to expensive, to most folks did buy amd64 boxes from amd (which is just an enhanced 64bit arch based on i386), so intel decided to licence the amd stuff and built amd64 capable CPUs as well
00:37<ml|>just trying to understand the logic is all
00:37-!-vsayer05 [] has joined #debian
00:38<TCW>that means almost ever, if you do not know what arch you have there... it is amd64 :)
00:39<TCW>because you KNOW when you had to pay the high prices for itanium servers :)
00:40-!-mhash [~mhash@] has joined #debian
00:42<altaira>sney: thanks a lot
00:42<sney`>no problem
00:43<Adaniel>Another question, is it possible to install a vmware into debian?
00:43<sney`>there are a few virtual machine programs available, like virtualbox
00:44<ml|>dpkg: vmware
00:44<dpkg>VMware isn't part of Debian, therefore it's not supported, ask me about <vmware support>. VMware is not in Debian because it is not Free software; even though you might be able to download it for no cost, the source code is not available for some parts and Debian is not allowed to distribute it, see <dfsg>. . See also <virtualization>.

01:34<philipwn>how to see how much HZ is my kernel running at?

01:36<cahoot> cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq
01:36<jm_>philipwn: do you mean kernel config option? are you using a debian kernel?
01:37<ml|>if it's config option debian uses 250 iirc
01:38<philipwn>cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq's output is 2000000. What that means? 200?
01:40<twb>philipwn: I imagine that's in Hertz.
01:40<sney`>200 kh
01:42<sney`>oh yeah
01:42<philipwn>I guess I need 1000hz for 1ms latency so I wanted to check out how much is it running right now
01:43<twb>philipwn: latency of what?
01:43<ml|>grep CONFIG_HZ_ /boot/config-*

02:24<dpkg>sid is the <unstable> version of Debian. Sid is the destructive kid in Toy Story. It is NOT an acronym, but is sometimes backronymed Still In Development anyway. Do not use sid unless you have the skill to find your way out of the mess that broken packages may put you in; sid is not supported in #debian because sid users should be able to solve their own problems. Sid will never be released. See also <sid faq> <unstable>.

06:10<fred1>most dhcp servers will do an arp check before assigning an address, so you should be reasonably safe from that address being assigned to something else

06:20<vinicius>fred1, even if noone has this ip
06:20<fred1>vinicius, it cant be *arbitrary*. it needs to be in the range that the router expects to be on the lan

07:15<themill>zeev: I've not touched synaptic for over 5 years.... I'd edit /etc/apt/sources.list to do so, adding "contrib non-free" to the end of the mirror and security lines that currently end in "main".

07:15<themill>!non-free sources
07:15<dpkg>rumour has it, non-free sources is edit /etc/apt/sources.list, ensure that the two main Debian mirror lines end with "main contrib non-free" rather than just "main", then aptitude update. But bear in mind that you'll be installing <non-free> software. These may have onerous terms; check the licenses. See also <sources.list>.

08:14<solar_sea>Hello. I've installed lenny-amd64 on a machine with a 6200 nvidia graphics card. I'm able to download/compile/use the prebuild module, however any of those options results in "The NVIDIA GPU at PCI:1:0:0 is not supported by the 173.14.09 NVIDIA Driver" What version should I install ? As a side note, X doesn't work either with the "nv" driver, apparently due to the lack of explicitly defines screens in xorg.conf. It works with Driver "vesa" though. Thanks for

08:33<solar_sea>Does the nvidia driver in testing support gt220 ?
08:34<jm_>you need a newer driver, from sid
08:35<jm_>testing has the same version as stable
08:35<solar_sea>Is there a backported version ?

11:38<Alpha_x>samba is used to acess files on the linux server? But how do I get the login that i log on to windows with to me being able to print thru the printserver and acess my files.

14:57<\3TATUK>Eventually I will upgrade my lenny SYSTEM to a squeeze SYSTEM.
14:57<\3TATUK>Currently, lenny only supports Linux.
14:57<fred1>i dont think you can have both kernels install in the same system, and be able to choose either.. either you have a linux system, or a kfreebsd system
14:57<\3TATUK>squeeze, though, supports both Linux AND kFreeBSD.
14:58<fred1>i think more accurate would be 'supports _either_ linux or kfreebsd'
14:58<mase>\3TATUK you need them in a parrallel way; can't use a debian-linux system with a kfreebsd kernel
14:58<\3TATUK>fred1: It supports *both*.
14:58<fred1>sure, and you choose which you want when you install
14:58<mase>\3TATUK but they are still different
14:58<\3TATUK>I've run GNU/Linux systems with multiple versions of the kernel and GRUB had no problem letting me choose between thome.
14:58<fred1>multiple versions of the *linux* kernel
14:58-!-swo [] has joined #debian
14:59<mase>\3TATUK debian is a kind of 'organization', providing both systems
14:59<\3TATUK>Look, are either of you running or helping develop squeeze?
14:59<themill>\3TATUK: Debian supports powerpc and amd64 but that doesn't mean you can upgrade your lenny amd64 system to support a powerpc kernel
14:59<mase>\3TATUK so the kfreebsd system is a different one than the linux system
14:59<\3TATUK>If not, then you likely can't truly answer my question of whether GRUB will support booting either.
15:00<themill>\3TATUK: you might want to go off and find out what kfreebsd really is.
15:00<mase>\3TATUK it probably will, but you need both systems, quite seperetated on partitions
15:00<\3TATUK>themill: powerpc and amd64 are CPU architectures ... kFreeBSD is an entire kernel, heh.
15:00<dpkg>Debian GNU/kFreeBSD is a port that consists of GNU userland using the GNU C library on top of FreeBSD's kernel, coupled with the regular Debian package set. It is a Debian Squeeze release goal for kfreebsd-amd64 and kfreebsd-i386 to become release architectures. #debian-kbsd on
15:00<themill>\3TATUK: and that kernel has a different userspace
15:00<mase>\3TATUK and the kfreebsd kernel will not work on a linux system
15:01<themill>or more precisely, a linux userland won't work on a kfreebsd kernel
15:01<mase>\3TATUK it still needs a kfreebsd system(installation)
15:01<mase>hey, many people, same opinion...
15:02<\3TATUK>themill: What's this about a ''linux userland''? Debian provides a *GNU* userland, which theoretically should run atop either Linux OR kFreeBSD. Maybe I'll take this to #debian-kbsd
15:02<fred1>basically, you'd have to recompile all the system libraries and binaries.. somehow I dont see grub offering that ability
15:02<fred1>the system binaries/libraries are compiled to work with a specific kernel
15:03<mase>\3TATUK just parrallel installations of the whole OS
15:03-!-marcels [~marcels@] has joined #debian
15:03<mase>\3TATUK parrallel installations of LINUX and KFREEBSD, not "just" the kernel
15:03<themill>\3TATUK: have a look at a random package written in C like perl on p.d.o: notice that there are separate kfreebsd-i386 etc packages just like there are different ones for each architecture?
15:05<\3TATUK>fred1: GNU binaries are compiled for specific architecture targets. Who's to say you can't run a specific GNU binary on *either* Linux or kFreeBSD, assuming the same CPU architecture?
15:05<mase>\3TATUK don't be confused; linux is an OS, freebsd is an OS
15:05<\3TATUK>LINUX and KFREEBSD are "just" kernels.
15:05<themill>\3TATUK: that is, you have to select kfreebsd or linux at installation time (or more precisely, when you download the ISO). You can't have one on top of the other any more than you can run things compiled for macos under windows even though they're all x86 chips
15:05-!-dante_2core [] has joined #debian
15:05<mase>\3TATUK GNU tools has to be compiled for either windows, linux, freebsd, hurd...
15:05<\3TATUK>Linux is not an OS. It's an OS kernel.
15:05*themill thinks this has run its course...
15:06<sney>grub could probably support booting both of them, but having them share a file structure would make both running systems mega confused
15:06<fred1>ok, then take a random linux binary, and copy it over to a freebsd machine. see if it runs.
15:06<sney>FreeBSD does have some ELF support, as I recall
15:06<fred1>yes, it has a linux-compat you can add.
15:06<fred1>but without that, it wont work
15:07<mase>i'm out
15:07<fred1>and even with it, its spotty
15:07<\3TATUK>themill: I'm pretty sure I could manually grab kfreebsd through apt if I wanted. I need to make a fresh install from an ISO. Heh.
15:07<themill>\3TATUK: you go right ahead and let me know how it goes
15:08<\3TATUK>Like I said, I'm not interested in manually installing kFreeBSD at this point. I'm just saying I *hope* it's automatically installed when squeeze is stabilized. Heh.
15:08<themill>\3TATUK: repeat after me "that's not the way it works"
15:08<fred1>\3TATUK, sure, if you download th3e squeeze-freebsd iso
15:09<fred1>if you download the squeeze-linux iso, then you'll get linux

15:55<sney`>k1lumin4t1: well you're not going to get that, the goal of debian is to have the core debian system run equally on everything. But it's very customizable so you can make it just as netbook-optimized as you want yourself.
15:55<fred1>and for non-unix fs (eg [v]fat, ntfs), i beleive it sets the 'fake ownership' to the currently logged in user

16:36<dpkg>BackTrack is a Linux distribution based on <Ubuntu> Intrepid (as of BackTrack 4), previously <SLAX>.

16:47<dpkg>0 is halt, 1 is single user, 2, 3, 4, 5 are multiuser, 6 is reboot. By default 2, 3, 4 and 5 are identical (no graphic/non-graphic runlevels), but you can configure this if you wish. Read /usr/share/doc/sysvinit/*; read /etc/init.d/README; man update-rc.d; if that doesn't make sense, consider installing <rcconf> instead., or ask me about <startup>, or for a real twist, see <file-rc>.

18:13<kenyon>you mean UUID=
18:13<mercutio22>kenyon: that \040 is a space indeed. it was put there by the disk manager application. I am afraid the disk came labeled from factory as "Iomega HDD", but that should not be a problem should it?

18:14<mercutio22>kenyon: the problem is all my torrents already use that path...
18:15<kenyon>mercutio22: so make a symlink
18:15<bja>mercutio22: last time i used an Iomega external hd it was fat32, not ntfs

18:16<mercutio22>The symlink option would probably be easyer right?

21:27<cesurasean>cwood, how do i enable/increase logging?
21:27<tp43>alright, anyone very familiar with hdaps, it is too high tech for me. I can manage suspend to disk and ram with these two commands echo -n mem > /sys/power/state and echo shutdown > /sys/power/disk; echo disk > /sys/power/state, so how can I change it so when lid is closed it just runs those commands
21:28<cwood>cesurasean: you can read the bind9 docs to figure that out. The package to install is "bind9-doc".

21:38<cesurasean>one is that hp proliant dl360, the other is an older HP desktop, not quite sure what motherboard is has on it.
21:38<dondelelcaro>cesurasean: basically, groupadd is failing because it's triggering an invalid opcode, which shouldn't be happening unless you're doing something really od
21:39<dondelelcaro>cesurasean: which dl360?
21:39<dondelelcaro>cesurasean: also, which kernel are you running?
21:39<cesurasean>newest kernel via aptitude update
21:39<cesurasean>what do you mean by which dl360?
21:39<dondelelcaro>cesurasean: uname -a; there are a few dozen kernels you can run
21:40<dondelelcaro>cesurasean: there are at least 7 variants of the dl360
21:40<tp43>how do you specify to use backports?
21:40<cesurasean>perhaps you missed the convo yesterday.
21:40<dondelelcaro>tp43: using the -t option
21:41<cesurasean>honestly, i don't know too much about these machines.
21:41<dondelelcaro>cesurasean: then run dmidecode on them, and find out?
21:41<dondelelcaro>cesurasean: basically, the error that you're seeing is most likely a kernel bug, or some issue with the hardware, and has nothing to do with bind

21:42<cesurasean>dondelelcaro, what do you mean by rather large problems?
21:42<tp43>dondelelcaro, so I have to apt-get remove purge apci, and then apt-get install -t apci?
21:43<tp43>cesurasean, basically groupadd should not fail
21:43<dondelelcaro>cesurasean: you've got a really basic opcode which isn't being handled by the underlying hardware. Presumably that's a kernel bug, but it's hard to say
21:43<dondelelcaro>tp43: no, you want apt-get -t lenny-backports install acpi; or similar. Or you could use the curses aptitude interface to select that precise version
21:43<cesurasean>perhaps it's related to the processor.
21:43<cesurasean>pentium 3's on both machines...
21:44<tp43>dondelelcaro, thanks so much

23:55<tp43>W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/tigon/tg3_tso5.bin for module tg3
23:56<sney`>I can never remember the name of that module
23:56-!-JanC [] has joined #debian
23:57<tp43>what does that mean?
23:57<sney`>if something says W: it's a warning
23:57<sney`>and if nothing is visibly broken, then it's probably not a warning you need to worry about
23:58<tp43>sney, thanks, I am gonna boot into this new kernel, see you in a few
23:58<sney`>ok, tp43, when you upgrade to 2.6.30 it should automatically update to the new firmware-ipwx2200 package
