02:31<axiusnew>hello, how can i see what version of a certain package is available (via aptitude) if the package is already installed ?
02:32<jm_>apt-cache policy pkgname
02:32<snogglethorpe>axiusnew: easy way (from command line) is just: aptitude search pkg-name
02:33-!-realcoolguy [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
02:33<snogglethorpe>er, you need to give it a format option too to see the version
02:34<snogglethorpe>e.g.: aptitude search -F"%p%v" "xserver-xorg~i"
02:34<axiusnew>thank you, i will try that now :)
02:34<snogglethorpe>("~i" in search string means "installed")
02:34<snogglethorpe>(otherwise it will show you everything with xserver-xorg as a substring, installed or not)
02:35<snogglethorpe>the name is a regexp, so you can also add, e.g., "^" at the begnning and "$" at the end to get an exact match
02:35<axiusnew>will this show me what version is available on the repository or what version i have installed ?
02:35-!-NuD [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
02:35<axiusnew>i see, thank you :)
02:35<snogglethorpe>i think %v means version installed, and %V (uppercase) means version in repo
02:35<jm_>that's for installed only
02:36<snogglethorpe>not srue tho
02:36<snogglethorpe>e.g.: aptitude search -F"%p%v%V" "^xserver-xorg-core$~i"
02:36<snogglethorpe>to see both
02:36<axiusnew>so this would mean i have the latest version installed ? :
02:36<axiusnew>mailscanner 4.78.17-2 4.78.17-2
02:37-!-Amateratsu [] has quit []
02:37<jm_>just use apt-cache policy
02:37-!-artista_frustrado [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:38<snogglethorpe>axiusnew: yes
02:38<axiusnew>thats what i needed :) thank you
02:39<snogglethorpe>hm, that's annoying, apt-cache policy only works if i'm root...
02:39<axiusnew>i installed using a mailscanner package i have created using alien because the newer version had solved a bug, and now i wanted to see what version is currently in the repo to check if there is a newer one :)
02:39<jm_>snogglethorpe: naah it works as user
02:39<snogglethorpe>jm_: not here it doesn't

02:41<snogglethorpe>argh i guess i've gotta restart and see if reverting xorg solves myprob or not... :(
02:42<axiusnew>thank you very much for your help, if it's not too much to ask, could you give me a hint as to how to check other repos for newer versions of the package i'm interested in ? (i'm currently using squeeze main non-free contrib)
02:42-!-melmothX [] has joined #debian
02:42<jm_>but if you mean unofficial ones then this won't work
02:43<snogglethorpe>axiusnew: you mean, other than just adding them to your sources.list, and trying?
02:43<axiusnew>no, i'm interested in official ones :) thank you very much
02:43<axiusnew>yeah :)
02:44<snogglethorpe>you can always comment-out the entry later if thigns don't seem to be to your liking...
02:44<axiusnew>since i'm new to linux and don't know every official repos out there :)
02:44<axiusnew>that is a good ideea but i would need to know witch repos i need first and i don't right now :) so rmadison is what i need i think :)
02:45<axiusnew>great help guys .. thanks :)
02:46<axiusnew>interesting, the results i got back were:
02:46<axiusnew>mailscanner | 4.55.10-3 | etch-m68k | source, all
02:46<axiusnew>mailscanner | 4.55.10-3 | oldstable | source, all
02:46<axiusnew>mailscanner | 4.74.16-1 | testing | source, all

02:46-!-axiusnew [~axius@] has joined #debian
02:46<axiusnew>sorry for that
02:47<axiusnew>so the latest version for that packet i was searching is mailscanner | 4.74.16-1 according to
02:47<axiusnew>i'm guessing that it doesn't search non-free or contrib
02:47-!-xayon_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:47<axiusnew>so these arent official repos ? (sorry if my question sounds stupid)
02:48<jm_>it does search non-free

04:39<dawnspirit>hem i've a little problem
04:39-!-athunye [] has quit [Quit: May the force be with you.]
04:39<dawnspirit>i'd like to install ldconfig
04:39<dawnspirit>but i did't find it
04:40<dawnspirit>does anyone can help me ?
04:40<gsimmons>cockroach: Xorg transition.
04:41<cockroach>dawnspirit: it's in libc-bin
04:41<cockroach>gsimmons: so it should just be a temporary absence, right?
04:41-!-aemili [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:42<gsimmons>cockroach: That's right, you can subscribe to its source package (xf86-input-evtouch) on the PTS for further updates.
04:42-!-debianite [] has joined #debian
04:42<cockroach>gsimmons: okay, thanks. i'll just use the package from sid for now and wait until it gets back in

04:43-!-orjan [] has joined #debian
04:44<orjan>Whats the config file to add a boot option to grub2 in squeeze?
04:44<gsimmons>dpkg: tell orjan -about grub2 config
04:44<orjan>gsimmons: thanks
04:45<debianite>orjan: the only file one should edit is /etc/default/grub
04:47<orjan>hmm it's not obvious how to add boot options to /etc/default/grub
04:47<debianite>each time i install a new kernel image grub take an enormous amount of time runing update-grub, is this normal?
04:48<debianite>orjan: which options do you have in mind?
04:49<debianite>orjan: well, my gess is that they shoul go next to the quiet option on /etc/default/grub
04:49-!-djnomad [] has joined #debian
04:50<djnomad>im new to debianandI cannot get my nvidia to install
04:50<gsimmons>Bacteria: Just stating the module's name in /etc/modules is sufficient, though you shouldn't even need to do that. Did you inadvertently blacklist snd-hda-intel?
04:51<cockroach>hmm, is there a way to figure out what resoltion xorg is running at from the outside? it seems my display can't display the resolution but before trying to fix that i'd like to be sure that's the actual problem...

04:53<Bacteria>gsimmons, I don't believe I have blacklisted it, because if I run modprobe snd-hda-intel it loads.
04:54<dawnspirit>can i force the installation of libc-bin ? because it has problem with lbc6
04:54-!-Imran-UK [] has joined #debian

04:56<dawnspirit>crockroack yes this is what i made 'cause i don't have it in synaptic and "deb" is not installed
04:56<cockroach>jm_: not sure where. it mentions four modelines but... oh, just found something, nevermind
04:56<themill>!wayttd dawnspirit

04:57<dawnspirit>i have to install the ld command
04:57<dawnspirit>crockroach, apt get don't find the package
04:57<cockroach>dawnspirit: ld? ld is in binutils
04:57-!-amphi [~amphi@] has joined #debian
04:57<cockroach>dawnspirit: you were talking about ldconfig before, i think
04:58<cockroach>dawnspirit: "apt-get install libc-bin"?
04:58<dawnspirit>yes it doesn't work
04:58<dawnspirit>actualy, when i was looking for ld, people were talking about ldconfig
04:58<cockroach>dawnspirit: try running "apt-get update" first
04:58<dawnspirit>that's why i mistaked
04:59-!-Bacteria [] has joined #debian
04:59<cockroach>dawnspirit: i see. well, after running "apt-get update", "apt-get install libc-bin binutils" should give you ldconfig *and* ld
04:59<Bacteria>gsimmons, yeah, that worked.
04:59<Bacteria>I don't know how I missed that one.
04:59<themill>dawnspirit: what have you been doing recently? How did you get your box into this state? libc-bin shouldn't need manual installation -- if you're running squeeze you should have it anyway and if you're running lenny you don't want it.
05:01<dawnspirit>yes i think the one i need is binutils

05:25<amphi>dawnspirit: you could boot from a cd, and try cp-ing ldconfig to /sbin
05:25<dawnspirit>amphi : because i tought ldconfig and ld was the same thing so i updated libc6 in libc-bin with the --auto-deconfigure argument and an error has stop the installation so i don't have ldconfig anymor

05:26<dawnspirit>good morning viliny
05:26<amphi>why were you doing that?
05:27<viliny>Small problem here -> Pidgin comes with lenny. apparently pidgin isn't upgraded as long as one release is alive
05:27<amphi>viliny: perhaps there is a backport?
05:27<viliny>i come from ubuntu and running debian for the first hour now, how exactly would i go about acquiring a newer version of pidgin?
05:27<viliny>okay i saw that mentioned in some google results amphi

05:28<viliny>thank you amphi :)
05:28<viliny>my first impression with debian is that it isn't as free-going as ubuntu
05:29<petemc>what does free-going mean?
05:29<viliny>installing stuff left and right wildly
05:29<dawnspirit>amphi : 'cause i need ld to install nvidia drivers
05:29<jm_>yeah because debian would definitely use something totally different to ubuntu which has apt

05:33<mrnice>jm_, i need it for bonding, so i bond the nics with different pci buses, my guess is that eth0 and eth1 share the same bus, but i am not shure
05:33<viliny>Reason to get worried?
05:33<amphi>dawnspirit: you thought you needed to update libc for an nvidia driver?
05:33<petemc>viliny: read what it says about keys on
05:34<jm_>mrnice: ahh, is there more info in dmesg perhaps?
05:34<viliny>it tells me to correct it with apt-get update but apt-get update is what gave me the error in the first place
05:35<mrnice>jm_, thx, good info, in dmesg i got the MAC's :)
05:35<viliny>petemc, gotcha, thank you that worked :)
05:35<jm_>mrnice: but how will that help? ifconfig also shows MAC address
05:35<dawnspirit>amphi : no, i need ld and i confused with ldconfig
05:35<seeS>doesn't lspci tell you which bus things are on

06:58<Viliny>debianite, any clues though?
06:58<mix22891>there are gnome and kde. qhat are them?
06:59<debianite>Viliny: one thing you can do is install a newer kernel Debian backports, 2.6.30 I think

07:32<Viliny>mix22891, how kde looks like? 1# i gave you the article with screenshots to both desktop systems #2 If your not running KDE at the moment then you are running Gnome - and if your running gnome then you should see something very similar to ubuntu which you said you had been using before and if thats all true then i can't understand the windows comment you made
07:32<mix22891>this is gnome?:
07:32<KTL>i have some problems with managing file permissions, i want to know easily who can read/write/execute files deeply nested in a directory hierarchy. Every node in the tree traversal could have other rights, need to know if the rights are sufficiently and not excessively chipped off

08:48<bremner>lancelot_of: I suggest being patient :).
08:48<jm_>first check if printer is supported in linux
08:48<bremner>then use cups
08:48<lancelot_of>bremner, of course, it seemed to me my post confused between many others, sorry
08:49<jm_>next check how it communicates, if it's jetdirect use cups (socket:// ...)
08:49<bremner>the cups add printer dialog should be straightforward. It helps to know the ip address of the printer, but there is also a scan built in

09:39<Bushmills>does one really have to go through tools such as find, to tell chmod to limit actions to files, or directories only? happens frequently enough that one want to change permissions recursively, but differently for directories and other. i can hardly believe that this pretty common situation hasn't been accounted for with chmod

09:41<locklace>Bushmills: it's precisely what find is for. if you use zsh, you don't need find, because its wildcard patterns are a strict superset of find's functionality
09:41<jmm>Bushmills: what did you expect ? some chmod option ?
09:41-!-fader05 [] has joined #debian
09:41<Bushmills>yes, probably. something which makes -R option actually useful.
09:42<Bushmills>without, treating directories and files identically for setting permissions can't really be the aimed for intention for -R
09:42<locklace>Bushmills: find+chmod is exactly in line with unix philosophy. having some weird filtering options in chmod would not be, since you'd then have to duplicate them in every other command that supported recursion
09:42<jmm>locklace is right.
09:42<Bushmills>locklace: but then, chmod wouldn't need a -R option, as find handles that as well

09:43<Bushmills>so you can set files word-readable but not set directories world-executable, without setting files executalbe?
09:44<locklace>the best solution is still having sufficiently good glob support in your shell

11:45<dpkg>methinks downgrade is not possible with apt-get currently. No future support is anticipated. Some programs change the binary format of their files in a way that cannot be rolled back later, and package maintainer scripts provide ways to upgrade to new config file formats but not ways to downgrade. You can always try to downgrade a package using dpkg -i <olderversion.deb>. See also <partial downgrade>, <unstable->testing>, <sdo>.

13:08<Minase>i used for begining KDE
13:09<Minase>great speed over 50MB/s
13:09<Minase>but after a while it remained in waiting no more copying
13:09<Minase>installed gnome
13:09<Minase>the whole sistem freeze...
13:09<Minase>after that KDE started to freeze to
13:09<Minase>this happen only when i copy from NTFS to NTFS
13:10<Minase>actually didnt tried from ext3 to ext3
13:10<Minase>no error log is recorded
13:10<Minase>for this problem
13:11<dpkg>The enter key is not a substitute for punctuation. Hitting enter unnecessarily makes it difficult to follow what you are saying. Consider using ',', '. ', ';', '...', '---', or ':' instead. If you hit enter too often, you will be autokicked by debhelper for flooding the channel.
13:11<Minase>i have 2.7 GB swap space
13:12-!-themill [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:12<locklace>try the ext3 to ext3, and also try it with plain cp from the commandline instead of using gnome/kde guis, and also when it starts to slow down before freezing, run top and see if there's anything eating cpu, and also confirm whether you're using ntfs-3g
13:12<locklace>and paste the output of uname -a
13:13<Minase>Linux server1 2.6.26-2-686 #1 SMP Wed Feb 10 08:59:21 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
13:13<locklace>and if you can duplicate the problem with plain cp, try it again with x shut down
13:13<Minase>this is a risky one :)
13:13<Minase>but i will try
13:14<Minase>.. btw how can i kill X

14:41<bja>teage: if you have running gnome install create a direct access or whatever is called (hit the right button on top of the app) then start picking its brain till you fing what you are looking for
14:41<gernot>Oh it was called /dev/scd0 then.

14:41<dpkg>Ubuntu is based on Debian, but it is not Debian, and it is unlikely to live up to Debian's standards (see <Debian policy>). Only Debian is supported on #debian. Use #ubuntu ( instead.

16:40-!-hggdh [] has joined #debian
16:40<gdb>It looks like you're referring to this, yes?
16:41<gdb>If you referr to that page, you'll see that it indicates that the source package "diffutils" builds the binary package "diff". Why the discrepancy? I don't know.
16:42<gdb>Also, the diff package is marked "essential" so it can't be removed.
16:42<tuxcrafter>^ my apt config
16:42<tuxcrafter>yea but diff is in the stable repository
16:42<tuxcrafter>the diffutils is in unstable
16:42<tuxcrafter>and it seem to have installed diffutils automaticly
16:43<tuxcrafter>should i just purge diffutils with --force and keep the diff package installed
16:44<gdb>Ah, you're talking about diffutils 1:2.9-2 from unstable?

16:46<gdb>apt-cache rdepends diffutils
16:46<tuxcrafter>Reverse Depends: diff
16:46<tuxcrafter>no other packages use it
16:46<gdb>What is the version of 'diff' you have installed?
16:46<gdb>the package? is it the stable one?
16:47<gdb>Which would be 2.8.1-12
16:47<tuxcrafter>dpkg --status diff shows Version: 2.8.1-12
16:47<dpkg>tuxcrafter: no idea
16:48<tuxcrafter>maybe debootstrab lenny pulled diffutils in
16:48<gdb>And that is the stable version...
16:48<tuxcrafter>and sinse it is only available in testing it installed the testing package
16:49-!-rjent [~rjent@] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]

17:08<sdk>quick question.. is this scenario possible: someone uploads a .jpg with executable code hidden in the image to a directory chmodded 777, then they go to that directory with a browser and click on the .jpg, could they execute code on the local system?

17:10<azeem>sdk: what do you mean with "hidden in the image"?
17:10<sdk>Our web developer has asked me to create a directory that will allow users to upload images from the 'Net, and I cannot figure out how to allow the php script to write to a directory without having it 777. For some odd reason 766 will not work.
17:10<azeem>either it's an executable, or an image
17:11<locklace>sdk: if they exploit a hole in the jpeg library used to render it
17:11<retrospectacus>the 6 means the webserver cannot read the directory contents
17:11<sdk>azeem: I do not know, actually. I thought it was technically possible with steganography to hide executable code in an image...

18:35<cmyers>I am using the proprietary nvidia driver which I also just upgraded, so there are a lot of variables here =(
18:35<valdyn>cmyers: read the log ?
18:35-!-Emmanuel_Chanel [] has joined #debian
18:35<Bacteria>If you upgraded the kernel, you want to recompile the nvidia drivers?
18:36<Bacteria>My errors were usually that xorg couldn't find the driver or that there was no screen.
18:36<dpkg>from memory, noscreensfound is probably dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg and SAY NO to the framebuffer question. If that doesn't work, ask me about "troubleshooting x" NOT A SODDING ERROR. read your xorg log to find the actual problem. There will be an earlier error (marked "(EE)") that is the actual problem.

18:42<cmyers>the older nvidia driver finds errors with the 32-bit opengl libs which the newer one did not, perhaps their location moved.
18:42<cmyers>this is version 185.x persus 190.x
18:43<valdyn>cmyers: debian changed 32-bit library locations, as did nvidia drivers, i dont know at which version.
18:43<cmyers>so I probably need hte newer drivers.
18:43<cmyers>or to pass some archaic flag to the nvidia installer.
18:43<cmyers>one of hte two.
18:43<cmyers>yeh, the old driver won't work now.

20:04<mixter_>hi! after updating lenny to revision 4, released in late january, it seems like my mysql-server is slower. it takes several seconds running queries that (if remembered correctly) took only fractions of a second before. has anyone heard of such problems before? is there any way to downgrade the mysql-server for testing?
20:04<dpkg>methinks downgrade is not possible with apt-get currently. No future support is anticipated. Some programs change the binary format of their files in a way that cannot be rolled back later, and package maintainer scripts provide ways to upgrade to new config file formats but not ways to downgrade. You can always try to downgrade a package using dpkg -i <olderversion.deb>. See also <partial downgrade>, <unstable->testing>, <sdo>.

20:30<teage>cmyers, its already modified so i guess from a directory would be the correct
20:30<cmyers>petemc is right that mkisofs should do everything you need, but if you want a GUI instead of messing with CLI options, I suggest K3b.
20:31<cmyers>I believe it can create a data disk from a directory and has a "bootable" checkbox or something along those lines.
20:31<teage>i have extracted the contents and done my modifying so all i want is to make it back to iso format

23:37<prem>is any such package is there for nautilus..?
23:38<quietman>That depends what desktop environment you're using, but in Gnome and KDE, yes.

23:41<prem>whats the package for autorun in gnome..?any idea
23:42<quietman>Sorry, haven't used gnome for a while. I would expect there to be something in the settings menus, maybe "preferred applications" or the like?
23:43<doobiean>i think it's sessions

23:46<quietman>Just found an old thread (2008) pointing someone at Control Center -> Look and Feel -> File Management -> Media
23:47<lostin>When running this "daniel@my-pos:~$ gpg -d /usr/share/keyrings/debian-archive-keyring.gpg" I get this "gpg: decrypt_message failed: unexpected data" This file has not been modified in anyway. Any ideas?

23:48<prem>quietman, yeah you are correct..thanks
23:49<doobiean>quietman, it's sessions - under preferences - although could be wrong, i'm not :) - i'm using e17 now though - i could be called session manager
23:49<jar>e17 is still being developed?
23:51<doobiean>for lenny, add deb lenny main extras to your sources.list
23:52<vantage>Hi, I'm booted using kernel 2.6.29-2 right now and my raid 1, lvm2 root partition is mounted correctly and shows up under dmsetup, however, none of the lvm2 tools show any output. Any idea why that is?
23:52<vantage>pvscan comes up empty, as does lvscan, and pvdisplay
23:52<jar>doobiean: I'm just surprised raster hasn't thrown away the current e17 backend.
23:52-!-sacox31s [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:52<vantage>but dmsetup ls shows the mounted lvm device

23:54<doobiean>jar, yea i like it better than anything - although the file manager is weird - so i use thunar alot
23:54<jar>doobiean: Well, you do know that there was a completed e17 back in like 2002, right? :P
23:55<jar>then raster was like
23:55<jar>HMM NAH
23:55<jar>and started over
23:55<jar>EFM was neat, though
23:55<jar>i liked that version of e17 because it was more like e16
23:56<doobiean>i think its a work in progress, they add stuff and throw some stuff away
23:56<jar>ive followed e17 since before the "e" directory in the e17 svn server was buildable
23:57<jar>i think the libs they push out are bitchin and all
23:57<jar>but E as a desktop has come and gone for me
23:57<jar>i'm an xfce man now
