00:00<sney`>I use sudo. it appeals to my core laziness.
00:00<hyperhacker>let me put it this way, I rewrite R4300 machine code for fun
00:01<hyperhacker>I guess capitalization at least would help though
00:01-!-hyperhacker is now known as HyperHacker
00:01-!-phrosty [] has quit [Read error: No route to host]
00:02<HyperHacker>say, why did Debian insist on spending several hours wiping my entire hard disk before installing? >.>
00:02-!-hugoxrosa [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:03<HyperHacker>and then it finally finishes that and gets to installing the base system, so I head out... come back and it's stopped at 13% to ask for info
00:03<HyperHacker>like couldn't it have asked before it started, or continued the other tasks in the background?
00:03<HyperHacker>the whole process took probably 10 hours
00:04<HyperHacker>nice that it went ahead and updated itself and installed MP3 codecs and so on though :-p

00:19-!-superjet_busy [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
00:19<cesurasean>how do i find out what ip is showing as my REAL dns info right now? im getting the wrong ip when connecting to a site...
00:19-!-negro-jei [~negro@] has joined #debian
00:20<ml|>you mean the correct ip?

00:21<ml|>getent hosts for example
00:22<cesurasean>how do i change this ip?
00:22<cesurasean>that it's returning. my bind files are not showing this ip address...
00:22-!-mase [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:22-!-goodger [] has joined #debian
00:23<ml|>what is that ip fro from?
00:23<kevix1> is not routeable, its local to your network
00:23<cesurasean>i need to fix the internal ip
00:23<cesurasean>i want that to reflect a public ip
00:24<cesurasean>my /etc/bind files are not showing this internal ip, either.
00:24<kevix1>most folks get the local ip after connecting to a cable/dsl modem via dhcp
00:24<cesurasean>kevix1, im very aware of that.
00:24<cesurasean>kevix1, i use static routing.
00:24<ml|>cesurasean: what are you try to do?
00:25<kevix1>computer ->(private ip)modem->(public ip)internet
00:25<cesurasean>ml|, my bind address is wrong. showing 110. i think this needs to reflect the actual ip of the server, or an external
00:25<cesurasean>the ip address is wrong
00:26<cesurasean>ive checked /etc/hosts, and /etc/network/interfaces, as well as /etc/bind
00:26-!-SubZero [] has quit []
00:26<cesurasean>do i need to just wait until propagation is finished?
00:27-!-hw [benjamin@] has joined #debian
00:28-!-diego465375 [~diego@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
00:28<ml|>using dynamic dns?
00:28<cesurasean>yes, i believe so.
00:29<HyperHacker>new xkcd's finally up
00:29<cesurasean>ml|, where is this ip address coming from? the /etc/bind files?
00:30-!-Name1ess is now known as Name1ess|ZzZz
00:30<ml|>cesurasean: dunno, this is as far as I can help you; good luck
00:31<cesurasean>ok, it's a propagation issue. thank god.
00:31<ml|>working now?

00:46<teage>Hi, I install compiz. How do i enable it?
00:48<HyperHacker>run "compiz --replace"
00:48<HyperHacker>try it in a terminal first to see if you get any important messages
00:50-!-razz9 [~rahul@] has joined #debian
00:50<teage>HyperHacker: I did that but i got a error and my windows bars disappear.
00:51<teage>had to reboot
00:52<teage>i will try again and paste what it is telling me.
00:52<teage>ebian:/home/teage# compiz --replace
00:52<teage>Checking for Xgl: not present.
00:52<teage>No whitelisted driver found
00:52<teage>aborting and using fallback: /usr/bin/metacity
00:52-!-teage was kicked from #debian by debhelper [use the paster bot or #flood]
00:53<HyperHacker>you don't have to reboot if you do it in the terminal, just Ctrl+C and then if necessary start your old window manager again
00:53-!-teage_ [] has joined #debian
00:53<HyperHacker>Xgl not present suggests your drivers don't support it, but in Xfce, I had it saying that just because compositing wasn't enabled in window manager settings
00:54<HyperHacker>whoops let me repeat that... you don't have to reboot if you do it in the terminal, just Ctrl+C and then if necessary start your old window manager again
00:54<HyperHacker>in this case you'd Ctrl+C and then if your borders don't come back do metacity --replace
00:55<teage_>weird cuz, on this same machine i was running ubuntu and it worked. I wonder how they manage it and i cant?
00:56<kevix1>ubuntu enable support for non-free drivers
00:56<HyperHacker>video driver issue? works on both for me, after installing the drivers
00:56<teage_>I have googled this and found nothing to help. Guess i will keep looking. Its really no big deal really. But it would be nice.
00:56-!-hw [benjamin@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:57<HyperHacker>what video card?
00:57<teage_>driver that is
00:57-!-goodger [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
00:57<teage_>yes...says graphics by nvidia
00:57<HyperHacker>woah I just broke the wobbly windows effect though
00:58-!-jm_ [] has joined #debian
00:58<HyperHacker>got a web browser stuck in a corner bouncing
00:58*HyperHacker just turns that silly effect off >.>
00:58<kevix1>as an example, on my laptop under ubuntu, wifi worked on the live cd, but on debian I had to install a non-free package for firmware, but then it worked
00:58-!-goodger [] has joined #debian
00:58<HyperHacker>anyway is what I did to set mine up just an hour or two ago
00:59-!-jtaji [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:59<HyperHacker>Ubuntu does make it easier to get some of these things yeah... I found they're also rather lacking in support and manage to break sound again with every version
00:59<khades>i want nouveau
00:59<HyperHacker>when 9.10 broke it again and nobody could fix it, and a bunch of bugs from previous versions reappeared, I said enough of this nonsense
00:59<kevix1>HyperHacker: well its pulse audio, yikes
01:00<jm_>you need bits from experimental for nouveau
01:00<teage_>Yes Ubuntu does make it easier..but it runs rather slower on my machine
01:00<HyperHacker>does PA work on Debian? >.>
01:00<khades>that new nvidia drivers aren't working good with my onboard graphics
01:00<khades>HyperHacker: ye
01:00<sney`>I think so
01:00<sney`>ubuntu trades stability for always having newer things available
01:00<kevix1>luckily my lappy has intel video
01:01<sney`>debian stable may be a little behind, but you can bet your ass that it works
01:01<HyperHacker>I'm always hearing it works great on some distros and poorly on others, but I want it because the client-server model just makes so much sense for audio :-p
01:01<sney`>ubuntu not so much
01:01<khades>ubuntu is debian for pussies
01:01<HyperHacker>sney, that's not what I found... on Ubuntu I was always finding that the latest versions in the repos weren't the latest versions available
01:02<teage_>How does kde run under debian?
01:02<teage_>sux with ubuntu
01:02<khades>teage_: also as in slackware
01:02-!-Memome [] has joined #debian
01:02<sney`>well, if pulseaudio works well in ubuntu, chances are good that you can make it work in debian. you might need to mangle some settings, but the support should be there
01:02<sney`>teage_: I've only run it on new hardware, but seems good from this end
01:02<sney`>new-ish anyway
01:02<HyperHacker>KDE heh... never liked it myself
01:02<teage_>sney: are you speaking of the compiz?
01:02<sney`>yeah I'm not a fan either, it's on my fiancee's desktop :0)
01:02<HyperHacker>been using Xfce for the longest time, trying Gnome now... much less customization I'm finding :(
01:03<khades>i am using awesome2
01:03<sney`>so use xfce again! it's in apt you know
01:03-!-Memome [] has quit []
01:03<sney`>I don't like gnome either
01:03<khades>Desktop enviroment? what for?
01:03<HyperHacker>well I've only been using Gnome for like 45 minutes, that's hardly fair :-p
01:03-!-Memome [] has joined #debian
01:03<sney`>teage_: compiz support will vary greatly depending on your graphics hardware
01:03-!-Memome [] has quit []
01:03<HyperHacker>sney, he said it worked on Ubuntu, so no reason it shouldn't work on anything else
01:04<sney`>and you're not going to see *huge* performance differences between debian and ubuntu
01:04<sney`>yeah, but he also said it was slow
01:04<sney`>oh I guess he just said it 'sux'
01:04<sney`>never mind
01:04<teage_>compiz worked very smooth with karmic. seems i should be able to set it up here as well.
01:04<khades>ubuntu is bit faster cause of sume core optimisation
01:04-!-Memome [] has joined #debian
01:04<khades>but all theese optimisations are neglected by all that software automaticly installed
01:04-!-brendan_ [] has quit [Quit: brendan_]
01:04<teage_>im rather new to debian. but like it.
01:05<khades>ye, debian is good
01:05<khades>specially after arch
01:05<sney`>they probably just set the kernel latency lower, you could do that yourself if you wanted ... but it's not a huge difference really
01:05<khades>i never will leave it
01:05<khades>sney`: i have enough low latency to work with sound in realtime with stock kernel
01:05<sney`>I always come back to debian, I used it on and off for several years since the 2.2 kernel
01:06-!-Memome [] has quit []
01:06<sney`>had a bunch of sparc hardware for a while that was better with gentoo but this time i think I'm back for good
01:06<khades>have and amd64
01:07<khades>maybe the most perfect disto for that
01:07-!-teage_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:09<sney`>if I still lived there I might go to that, even though I can't code my way out of a wet paper bag
01:09<sney`>just to nerd out
01:09-!-teage [] has joined #debian
01:09<teage>yep,,control c
01:09<teage>froze me up
01:10<kevix1>there are other cities but I think they are in europe
01:10<teage>HyperHacker: can you give me that link again please?
01:10-!-musca [] has quit [Quit: ZNC -]
01:11<sney`>a friend of mine is a Notable FreeBSD Developer(tm) and he's gone to a similar shindig in Ottawa a few times, and the NetBSD guy lives in my city, maybe I should become a BSD guy instead! ...naaah
01:11<teage>I wonder if i can get my driver from my windows cd?
01:12-!-tlyu [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:12<kevix1>teage: why hardware support are you missing?
01:12-!-mhash [~mhash@] has joined #debian
01:13<teage>im missing my graphics driver
01:13<teage>i think
01:13<sney`>aptitude install module-assistant; m-a prepare; m-a a-i nvidia && apt-get install nvidia-glx && dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
01:13-!-cahoot [~radix@] has joined #debian
01:14<sney`>teage: if you run those commands as root, it should work. the windows cd will not have anything useful for you
01:14<teage>Installation of the nvidia-kernel-source source failed.
01:15<sney`>oh, do you have non-free and contrib in your sources.list?
01:15<teage>let me check
01:16-!-git__ [] has joined #debian
01:16<sney`>they would just go after 'main' in your line near the top
01:16<jm_>note that newer nvidia chips are not supported by the version in stable, you need the one from sid
01:16<teage>only ones unchecked are Non-DFSG-compatible Software (non-free) and Source code.
01:17<sney`>you need non-free for the nvidia drivers
01:17-!-git__ [] has quit []
01:17-!-HyperHacker [~hyperhack@] has quit [Quit: X restart]
01:17-!-goodger [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
01:17<teage>jm_: if that is my case. I would just add the repo, right?
01:17<jm_>teage: which card do you have?
01:19<teage>Im not sure jm_
01:19-!-HyperHacker [~hyperhack@] has joined #debian
01:19<jm_>teage: run lspci
01:19<HyperHacker>oh lovely X doesn't see my extra mouse buttons
01:19<sney`>add 'em
01:20-!-aranax [~aranax@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
01:20<HyperHacker>how else besides Option "Buttons" "10"?
01:20<teage>VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 (rev a2)
01:20<teage>i think thats it
01:20<sney`>that's old enough that lenny should support it fine
01:20<jm_>that is supported by stable driver
01:21<sney`>just gotta check off the non-free and source repos so apt can get at them
01:21<teage>apt is working
01:21<HyperHacker>that too I guess I'll have to extract from the old xorg.conf when TrueCrypt decides to work

01:25-!-ant777 [~jay@] has joined #debian
01:25<jm_>it's realtively easy to upgrade nvidia driver
01:26-!-Celtiore [] has joined #debian
01:27<teage>ok, i will try compiz --replace again
01:28-!-goodger [] has joined #debian

01:28-!-xdzzz [] has quit []
01:29<teage>and if i control c it will freeze up and i will be rebooting
01:29<goodger>I have been trying to enable hardware acceleration on this notebook for some hours --- can anyone offer some help? xorg.conf is configured exactly as it should be, and glxinfo reports DRI is working, but without fail the system will choose the software rasterizer over the 3D accelerator chip :/
01:30-!-ehren [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:30-!-teage [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:31<goodger>this is a radeon 7000, xorg.conf is as shown in - DRI mode is set to 0660, various packages and drivers are installed

01:32-!-Midnight [] has left #debian []
01:32<sney`>including xserver-xorg-video-ati I presu
01:33<sney`>what happens when you run glxgears
01:33-!-adema [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:33-!-cahoot [~radix@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:33<goodger>it runs at an ever-increasing framerate...
01:34<sney`>ballpark quantity?
01:34<goodger>oh, no, it's settled down at 160fps
01:34-!-jerryclunsford [] has joined #debian
01:34<sney`>160 hmm that sounds like software
01:34<goodger>yes, it does
01:34<sney`>can you pastebin all of glxinfo somewhere
01:35<goodger>I would have thought the renderer string being "software rasterizer" was a better clue
01:38<sney`>got libgl1-mesa-glx and libgl1-mesa-dri installed?
01:38-!-xdzzz [] has joined #debian
01:38-!-xdzzz [] has quit []
01:39<goodger>sney`: yep
01:39<sney`>oho, i just found something on the debian wiki
01:39<sney`>what kernel are you running?
01:40-!-goodger_ [] has joined #debian
01:40<goodger_>here are my xorg.conf and Xorg.log.0 for good measure: --- on a related note, I could swear that this DSL connection has gained sentience and a dislike for me
01:41<sney`>possibly. what kernel are you running?
01:41<goodger_>and I've missed anything after "oho"
01:41<goodger_>2.6.32-trunk, but this was the case on various 2.6.2x as well
01:42<sney`>you need the linux-firmware package to support ati gpus past kernel version 2.6.29
01:42<goodger_>I'm seeing no such package in the repositories
01:42<goodger_>do you mean firmware-linux?
01:43<sney`>yeah, they probably changed it
01:43<goodger_>which incidentally is installed, or at least firmware-linux-free
01:43<sney`>you need the non-free ones as well
01:43<Torsten_W>but you need firmware-linux-nonfree
01:43<goodger_>I shall try installing firmware-linux-nonfree, but I'm pretty sure this driver is meant to be free
01:43-!-goodger [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
01:44<Torsten_W>the driver, yes, the firmware, no
01:44<goodger_>so it would seem
01:44<sney`>total freeness is the ultimate goal though of course
01:44<goodger_>how irritating.
01:44-!-debalance [~debalance@] has joined #debian
01:44<sney`>at least we can repo it instead of having to deal with ati installers or something
01:45<goodger_>is there a non-hassle way to insert this into the running kernel or is it easier to shutdown r
01:45<goodger_>shutdown -r?
01:45<goodger_>oh, it seems I'm being given a new initramfs, so that answers that
01:46<sney`>I was going to guess that you could shut down X, rmmod radeon, and modprobe radeon again, but maybe not
01:46<goodger_>I shall return shortly, then
01:46-!-goodger_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:48-!-Chameleon [] has joined #debian
01:49<Chameleon>i have a question how stable and secure is Debian ?
01:49-!-massmc [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:49<jerryclunsford>Can some one tell where to look to correct a problem: I am running lenny amd 64 I have two user names set up. recently my primary user lost the hisghest resolution setting and refresh rate, My secondary still has all three resolutions and refresh rates
01:49-!-Meise [] has joined #debian
01:49-!-goodger [] has joined #debian
01:50<sney`>Chameleon: Debian Stable is very stable. as for secure it depends on what you're doing. for a general purpose server it is very secure, but if you're in a situation where you're going to have a lot of penetration attempts you may want to look into something more customized

01:54<goodger>good news!
01:55<goodger>OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R100 (RV100 4C59) 20090101 AGP 4x x86/MMX/SSE2 NO-TCL
01:55<jerryclunsford>Is here a channel better suited to this problem?
01:55<goodger> can you help me to stop it crashing the system whenever I load glxgears?
01:55<sney`>heh, don't run glxgears
01:55<Chameleon>sney' how about how customizeable is it or do i want something like slack,gentoo?
01:56<sney`>debian is very customizeable and the software repositories are among the largest of any distro
01:56<goodger>sney`: I would prefer to be able to use DRI applications without it crashing, if possible...
01:56<sney`>goodger: oh, so it's with more than just glxgears?
01:57<goodger>well, it was last time I tried to configure 3D acceleration
01:57-!-alephnull [~alok@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:57<Chameleon>sney' do you use any other distro other than debian?
01:58<goodger>Chameleon: the ` key is above tab
01:58<sney`>Chameleon: I have also used gentoo, slackware, LFS and ubuntu. I always come back to debian.
01:58-!-ak [] has joined #debian
01:59<Chameleon>goodger, i know iam tired been reading all day looking for the perfect distro for me
02:01<ak>Good morning! Whether there were you a problem in a kernel 2.6.32-trunk-686 with ADSL-connection (PPPoE). The modem a kernel sees, and pppoeconfig says that is not present Ethernet concentrators... In 2.6.30 all it was normally got. In Google anything about bugs 2.6.32-trunk-686+ADSL has not found: (Help please
02:01<dpkg>Russian speakers, please use (Pogalujsta, zajdite na) (Pazhaluista, zahodite na) #debian-russian @
02:01<Chameleon>sney` whay is that ? ive tryed all execpt LFS and i liked slackware and gentoo slackware it just was easy for me and gentoo was cool cuz of all of the doc's for it but takes way to long to install
02:02<jm_>ak: start by verifying if your network cards are detected and assigned the same interface names
02:02<sney`>Chameleon: debian has a big established community, the package tools are very solid, and it runs on almost anything. with those other systems if something broke I was on my own, at least here there's likely to be someone else with the same issue
02:02<Chameleon>sney` what i mean by easy for slackware is that the commands just stuck in my head
02:02<sney`>you get a lot of that here as well

02:55-!-spindogs [] has left #debian []
02:55<jm_>doh too late
02:56<panthera>goodger: the *lenny* images of course ship with grub.
02:57<ml|>goodger: /msg dpkg grml
02:57<panthera>in lenny, grub and grub-pc conflict, and since grub is default and not grub-pc, we choose grub and not grub-pc.
02:57<panthera>if you want grub-pc, you either use a newer image or build it yourself.
02:57<goodger>well, yes, this is obvious
02:58<goodger>I was, however, expecting to be able to chroot into squeeze without it taking quite severe objection
02:58<panthera>what 'objection'?
02:58<goodger>and so I have just manually booted my system with commands typed into a totally non-configured copy of grub 0.97 that debian live has somehow dumped into my MBR
02:59<goodger>when I typed grub-install /dev/sda it complained that /boot was not mounted
02:59<panthera>'debian live' doesn't dump anything.
02:59<panthera>you did install grub.
03:00<goodger>yes, but I can't remember how this copy of grub 0.97 came to be installed
03:00<panthera>apart from that, you should have used 'grub --root-dir=/mnt/chroot /dev/sda'
03:00<goodger>yes, I did that
03:00<panthera>but again, this is grub and you being using it, nothing to do with debian live.
03:00<goodger>it didn't work until I had erased the devicemap file on the mount
03:01<panthera>in such cases, you might want to use --recheck.
03:01<goodger>well, in any case, it's booted now, just about
03:02<goodger>and I have run grub-install /dev/sda from within the squeeze installation proper and it hasn't complained

03:47<jm_>wait, the whole dir is gone, right that won't work
03:47<dpkg>The reason you have to use dpkg --force-confmiss is because whenever your config files (<conffiles>) are gone, dpkg assumes you deleted them on purpose, and that you want them to stay deleted. You can also reinstall them using the following apt-get line: apt-get -o DPkg::Options::="--force-confmiss" --reinstall install <packagename>; or using aptitude, aptitude -o DPkg::Options::="--force-confmiss" reinstall <packagename>;

05:35<jmm>infortunalty I don't know what is ucf.
05:35-!-debalance [~debalance@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:35<jm_>why not look at packages using ucf?
05:36<Elessar>I am looking at a package that uses ucf, and I think it is an incorrect use, that would be the cause of an annoying bug.
05:36<Elessar>Here is what it does:
05:36-!-trb [] has joined #debian
05:36-!-debalance [~debalance@] has joined #debian
05:36<Elessar>Installs /some/file, and then, in postinst, ucf /some/file /some/file.
05:36-!-trb [] has quit []
05:37-!-elusivio [] has joined #debian
05:37<Elessar>So here is what I suspect that happens on reinstall/upgrade: the unpacking overwrites the file, and ucf can nothing against that.
05:37<Elessar>As it is not given a temporary name.
05:38<Alpha_x>I'm trying to set up a samba domaincontroller but got stuck on typing this command: net groupmap modify ntgroup="Domain Admins" unixgroup=root. the guide Im following is for ubuntu though, is there a difference in the commande on debian?`
05:38<Alpha_x>Using this guide:
05:39<jm_>and /some/file is not marked as config file, yeah that would be bad
05:39-!-amol1 [~amol1@] has joined #debian
05:39<Elessar>Marked as config file, no idea.
05:40<Elessar>It is not listed in debian/conffile, if it is that.
05:42<Alpha_x>NT group domain admins doesnt exist in mapping DB. How do I add this group?
05:42<jm_>yeah sounds like a bug to me, did you check BTS?

08:14<axos88>jm_, no when I mount manually, everything is fine, always works at first try
08:15<jm_>axos88: check what kernel reports when reports an error
08:15<jmm>amol1: you could make a script shell that do it, and launch it on start ( or when you want ), but I don't see how it would be usefull.

08:33<axos88>jm_, i don't understand... why does it work for sysfs, but not for me?... grrr!

08:34<jm_>axos88: one of the init scripts should take care of it
08:34<prahal>Yerzriknot, it is only the first page of the output . You can scroll down and you ll see if you have an error telling about firmware missing
08:34<jm_>axos88: /etc/init.d/ for me and that also explains why default works for it - it passes all arguments to mount by the looks of it

08:56<prahal>this is a package name that I told you about . It contains a lot of firmwares for intel wireless devices
08:56<Yerzriknot>So apt-get install firmware-ipw2x00?
08:57<prahal>aptitude install firmware-ipw2x00 ! apt-get is not recommended :) obsolete
08:58<prahal>still for package development apt-get is needed as aptitude does not have all the advanced fonctionality of it but for the management of the dependencies aptitude is way better
08:58<Yerzriknot>I get the following

09:02<Yerzriknot>Why does the output say it's removing stuff like cheese and ekiga?
09:03<prahal>aptitude found an issue with existing dependencies . most likely apt-get did not do a good job (that the reason it is obsoleete) Try aptitude update; aptitude safe-upgrade . It should propose different means to fix dependencies
09:04<Yerzriknot>It's still removing stuff...
09:04<Yerzriknot>Did I break Debian by trying to install the firmware?
09:05<prahal>does not it provices choices ? I am using sid so aptitude is a bit newer maybe on my side . You could try the aptitude command alone
09:05<prahal>you could still install firmware package via apt-get
09:05-!-ak [] has joined #debian

13:47<retrospectacus>it's down...
13:48<fredz>edhunter: I have tried grep on its own, ls with grep. I think the problem is the manner in which I have constructed the command. I have even tried grep -r string
13:49<retrospectacus>fredz: how does the command I put above not suitable?
13:49<edhunter>fredz: the thing is that grep "string" -r /directory will match any "string" not exact "string"
13:49<xnox_>retrospectacus: awesome site =) thank you
13:50<edhunter>fredz: you can try with grep -w "string" -r /dir

14:14<cahoot>you probably should be better off using complete sentences

14:16<dalvarez>retrospectatus: Because /etc/init.d/vsftpd start would just act as if everything was all right, when in fact it just writes the pid to /var/run/vsftpd and quits
14:17-!-mode/#debian [+l 416] by debhelper
14:17<caio>How do I get it authentication in apache?
14:17<retrospectacus>with a .htaccess and .htpasswd - google can tell you all about it
14:18<Gathond>or directly in the apache config
14:18<Gathond>.htaccess/.htpasswd is really mostly for when you can't edit the configuration directly
14:18<Gathond>any directive in those files can potentially go directly in the configuration
14:19<dalvarez>retrospectatus: I looked up several vsftpd+ssl howtos on the web, and followed the instructions. As far as I can see, I did everything exactly the way it was explained. I generated the certificate using "openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -newkey rsa:1024 -out /usr/share/ssl-cert/vsftpd.cert.pem -keyout /usr/share/ssl-cert/vsftpd.cert.pem"

16:53<DalexSoto>could you recommend me a good guide on installing nvidia nix drivers?
16:53-!-gaurav__ [] has joined #debian
16:53<cesurasean>i just had a failure on a primary drive with raid mirroring. how do i go about restoring the information, or recreating the raid after 1 of the hard drives have failed using software raid?
16:53-!-xover [] has joined #debian
16:54<sney`>DalexSoto: for debian,
16:54-!-tdomhan [] has joined #debian
16:54<cesurasean>i would very much appreciate someone's knowledge on this.
16:54<weasel>mdadm is the tool you need
16:55<cesurasean>weasel, mdadm is what i was using.
16:55<weasel>I don't know the magic incant (--add something), but I guess you'll find it if you ask google
16:55<cesurasean>weasel, can i boot off the 2nd hard drive, or will i need to install grub?
16:55<weasel>depends on how grub is installed
16:56<xover>how do i get vmware server 2 to use both cpus in a debian vm, i have selected 2 in the vmware server 2 gui, but they are not both being used as shown in top
16:56<gdb>cesurasean: mdadm --fail /dev/md0 /dev/sdb1
16:56<gdb>cesurasean: mdadm --remove /dev/md0 /dev/sdb1
16:56<gdb>cesurasean: * replace disk
16:56<gdb>cesurasean: mdadm --add /dev/md0 /dev/sdb1
16:56<gdb>that's all there is to it
16:56<cesurasean>gdb, it failed on reboot.
16:56<weasel>xover: do they both show up in /proc/cpuinfo?
16:56-!-afurlan [~afurlan@] has joined #debian
16:56<cesurasean>it failed while rebooting.
16:56<gdb>cesurasean: What failed? is this the primary boot drive?
16:56<weasel>what makes you think they are not both being used?
16:56<cesurasean>the primary boot drive failed while rebooting
16:56<gdb>cesurasean: Is it SATA?
16:57<xover>weasel: top shows only 50% max CPU usage
16:57<weasel>doesn't mean anything
16:57<xover>When I am compiling the kernel
16:57-!-GoNoGo_ [] has joined #debian
16:57<weasel>htop is slightly easier to use
16:57<xover>of course it does
16:57<weasel>no, it doesn't.
16:57<weasel>also, did you tell your make to fork more than one process?
16:57<cesurasean>gdb, what do you suggest?
16:57<gdb>You may be able to swap cables and boot off the mirror then. Then add the new disk into the array. You will want to do this on the new disk first -> sfdisk -d /dev/good_disk | sfdisk /dev/new_disk
16:57<gdb>I think it's -d, may be -c
16:58<xover>no, what is the option for that?
16:58<gdb>yes, it's -d
16:58<cesurasean>gdb, what if i can't boot off the mirror? install grub using boot cd?
16:58<weasel>-j <n>
16:58-!-lightwire [] has joined #debian
16:59<gdb>cesurasean: Yes, if the mirror is unbootable, then you'll need to use a rescue disk to make it bootable (be that marking a partition active, installing grub, etc). It should work just as if it were an unbootable primary disk. So whatever method you'd use to recover from that should be fine.
16:59-!-GoNoGo_ [] has quit []
16:59<sney`>where n is number of cpus +1, usually.
16:59<xover>so its make -j 2 for dual core?
16:59-!-gaurav [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
16:59<sney`>like I do make -j3 on my 2-cpu systems, and I did -j5 on my quad-cpu system
16:59<weasel>no, n is the number of jobs to fork
16:59<gdb>er wait
16:59<weasel>you can make it anything you like :)
16:59<gdb>I thought grub didn't support root mirroring yet and you had to use LILO.
16:59-!-artista_frustrado [] has joined #debian
16:59<weasel>gdb: it does, kinda. you just have to know to install it twice.
16:59<xover>so what would do you suggest for max performance?
16:59<gdb>At least the last time I set up a mirrored boot disk with Lenny, it used LILO.
16:59<gdb>ah okay
17:00<weasel>2? 3? 42?
17:00<sney`>xover: number of cpus +1
17:00<xover>sney: so 3 for a dual core then?
17:00<weasel>SET IT ALREADY
17:00<weasel>it's not rocket science
17:00<weasel>just try it
17:00<weasel>it hardly matters
17:00<xover>weasel: shut up
17:00<xover>weasel: you heard
17:01-!-mode/#debian [+o weasel] by ChanServ
17:01<sney`>don't run -j without a number, though
17:01-!-xover was kicked from #debian by weasel [bye]

17:05<sney`>xover: trial and error for every system. -j3 works best for 2-way in my experience, ymmv. just don't run -j without a number as it will fork the maximum amount of jobs.
17:05<xover>sney: thank you

17:06<sney`>I don't think gcc can fork jobs on its own
17:06<gdb>ok, then make (I never compile anything anymore, my need to do that went away 10 years ago) sorry!
17:06<locklace>!uuoc gdb
17:06*dpkg hands gdb the "useless use of cat" award
17:07<gdb>yeah, sure, grep processor /proc/cpuinfo | wc -l
17:07<gdb>that works, too!
17:07-!-dr|z3d [] has joined #debian
17:07<weasel>I wonder how smart that is in the precense of HT
17:07<locklace>gdb: or like, grep -c
17:07<rik_>grep -c processor /proc/cpuinfo
17:08-!-artista_frustrado [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:08<sney`>HT reads as separate cpus in cpuinfo
17:08<gdb>oh nice, that's something i didn't know (wrt: -c) thanks
17:08<weasel>doesn't mean they are seperate CPUs tho
17:08<weasel>(evil gnu specific flags)
17:09<sney`>I had a xeon workstation that was basically 4-way because of HT, running it as if they were 4 real cpus for compiles worked pretty well in my opinion
17:09<weasel>in the end it probably doesn't matter much anyway
17:09<gdb>This system here I have is HT and there's no way to tell in the OS, that I'm aware of, that it's HT and no discrete cores.
17:10<weasel>and if you build stuff a lot you probably want ccache and distcc anyway
