02:23<Lanz>slb_ you should set up pptp on the Debian VPN server
02:23<Lanz>You can find a guide on the Debian wiki I believe
02:23<Lanz>If not just Google a little, it's super easy to set up

02:24<amol112>my usb modem 0451:6060 is not getting detected in network manager..any driver issue?
02:24<slb_>i set up openvpn which seems to be alright
02:24<slb_>i guess deployment is kind of a pain in the ass
02:24<amol112>i did modprobe usbserial vendor=0x0451 product=0x6060
02:25<amol112>after this device got detcted in dmesg output but not showing network manager

02:32<adb>amol112, judd> [0451:6060] is 'Unknown device' from 'Unknown vendor' with no known kernel module in lenny or in sid. See also
02:32<amol112>adb this is not PCI device it is USB to serial
02:32<jm_>he did the right thing with vendor= and product= options
02:33<amol112>jm_, but next i am missing some steps due to which it is not recognising as ethernet device
02:33<amol112>not displaying in network manager as usb ethernet icon
02:34<jm_>amol112: as ethernet? surely it's a serial (character) device
02:35-!-cahoot [~radix@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:35<jm_>amol112: I can't really help with NM side - I've done this once with some motorola GSM modem and modprobing usbserial this way helped recognize it and then it was usable with tools like gnokii
02:42-!-alephnull [~alok@] has joined #debian
02:44<amol112>jm_, any user space driver as well require for these type of modem
02:45<gsimmons>amol112: What specific modem is this? (brand, model)

02:53<amol112>twb, but after doing modprobe with vendor name it has to detect and display in network manager
02:54<twb>amol112: the only support I will provide for NM is helping you purge it.
02:54<twb>amol112: I recommend wpa-cli, wifi-radar, or wicd. These Do Not Fuck with the rest of your system, they JUST handle the wifi AP configuration.
02:55<amol112>twb, using these will it be possible to configure modem
02:56<twb>Ah, well, I haven't had to deal with HSDPA modems, but I imagine you just use a static pppd configuration.

03:01<jm_>yeah if it's ppp you simply use it via its serial device file I imagine
03:01<twb>jm_: AIUI all HSDPA modems just act as PPP from the software perspective.

03:13<jm_>due to its menu spec? does lxde support that too?
03:14<cenobyte>according to that it supposed work

05:06-!-Odius [] has joined #debian
05:06<twb>OK, if this is an old problem then my idea isn't relevant.

05:08<marlen>how can I run apt get install package?
05:08<twb>marlen: do you know what a shell is?
05:09<amphi>twb: what was your idea, BTW?
05:09*MeCooL i`m back
05:10<twb>amphi: a guy in #ratpoison yesterday had pointer vs. keyboard focus issues after upgrading xorg and consolekit; restarting X and/or rebooting fixed it.
05:10<marlen>I'm afraid I don't.I used to have xubuntu and I knew how to install a package from a terminal,on debian I'm not able to do it..
05:11<twb>marlen: why aren't you able to?
05:12<marlen>because I don't know what to do,"how to install from a terminal" on debian
05:12<twb>marlen: it's no different.

05:50<twb>I'm building a headless "appliance" host, runs dhclient to configure its networking.
05:50-!-Imran-UK [~iceman@] has joined #debian
05:50<twb>I plan to implement a monitor script that will check that eth0 if up, has an IP, and a route -- and if not, to make some beeps, then issue an "ifdown eth0; ifup eth0".
05:51<twb>Is there a better way to perform the check than grepping the output of "ip addr show dev eth0" and "ip route show dev eth0"?
05:52-!-ChefMan [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
05:52-!-swo [] has joined #debian
05:52<seeS>depends on what you mean as "down"
05:53<twb>I already have other tests for e.g. ping and mii-tool.
05:53<twb>So this test is basically "did dhclient succeed, and get enough information?"
05:54<seeS>i think that's the only way
05:54<Imran-UK>would not the ping test satisfy the need for the ip command grep test?

05:54<twb>Imran-UK: yes, except that I'd like to give different beep sequences for different kinds of failure
05:55<twb>e.g. if the cable is unplugged, I can have it emit "CBL" in morse, which is makes it easy to debug if $end_user holds their phone to the machine

06:23<twb>I basically just want to use libvirt to formalize the interface to my existing qemu VMs and planned LXC jails.
06:24<mattyh88>hi, i'm having troubles with virtual box & debian. I haven't got internet connection apparently in my debian (guest os). (Setting is NAT in virtual box)
06:24<mattyh88>i've set up a static ip address, everything works with dhcp set up .. but I'd like it to be static ^^
06:24-!-dr|z3d [~dr|] has joined #debian
06:24<twb>mattyh88: why not simply configure your DHCP server to provide it with a fixed IP address?
06:25<mattyh88>is that possible with a simple dhcp server that's built into my router? :p
06:25<twb>I generally prefer that to static configuration, because then only one side of the link has configuration to babysit maintained.
06:25-!-snogglethorpe [] has quit [Quit: balkuj]
06:25<twb>mattyh88: that would depend on what DHCP server you installed on your router.
06:25<mattyh88>i'll have a look ^^, thanks
06:26<twb>mattyh88: both dnsmasq and ISC dhcpd support it, at least.

06:27<mattyh88>haven't got a clue
06:27<mattyh88>in' it anything to do with my dns?

06:28-!-AbsintheSyringe2 [] has joined #debian
06:28<twb>If you're using DNS for hostname resolution (which is typical, these days), that would normally be provided by DHCP or set manually for static links.
06:29<mattyh88>so you're saying i don't need to configure anything extra?

09:25<locklace>mercutio22: this would be a good time to start looking at your AP's network settings and diagnostics. if you can initiate a ping from it to your host (, do so
09:25<locklace>mercutio22: has this link ever worked for you?
09:25-!-valdyn [] has joined #debian
09:26<mercutio22>locklace: yeah, it used to work
09:26<locklace>mercutio22: also consider using tcpdump to see what's happening on the WLAN in general and when you're trying the ping
09:26<locklace>mercutio22: what changed between when it worked and when it stopped
09:27<locklace>mercutio22: your wlan adapter is online, associated with the AP, and both sending and receiving data. furthermore, arp to the AP is working fine. in short, the wlan data link seems just fine.

10:31<twb>I would expect inittab to be prepared by sysvinit

10:43<twb>bgat: consider e.g. installing postgres into the cross-chroot
10:43<dpkg>hello, domzinique
10:44<Cadmium01>Greetings everyone
10:44<Cadmium01>I'd like to use rsnapshot to backup my data, but there's one particular thing that worries me: Since it uses hard links to minimize space used and create incremental backups (which is great to save space) what happens if the source is compromised?
10:44<bgat>twb: ok, I'll bite even though I don't need postgres. what's the issue?
10:44<twb>bgat: it's postinst is nontrivial
10:45<twb>bgat: it doesn't reduce to "create some files"
10:45<domzinique>I installed KDE and chose GDM as my default Desktop Manager. KDE is installed in a strange language (maybe arabic) which I can't read. How do I change the language setting? I use Debian Lenny 5.04 with kernel version 2.6.26-2-686.
10:46-!-Jo [] has joined #debian
10:46<bgat>twb: so postinst for postgres would have to run in second-stage, which means it already has to have a valid rootfs and inittab--- otherwise you wouldn't be able to boot into the environment that can run postinst.
10:46-!-Jo [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:47-!-mode/#debian [+l 405] by debhelper
10:47<bgat>twb: if my sole objective is to just make sure that first-stage can create an inittab and fstab, so that the (cross) rootfs is bootable, it still seems like having a platform-specific package that contains those files would do the trick...
10:47-!-KrimZon [] has joined #debian

10:50<bgat>I've been writing them by hand all along. :) I'm just heading towards a custom repo because of other packages, and I'm wondering if it's possible to have a cross debootstrap that yields a bootable rootfs in a single step.
10:50<anthony_>good morning
10:50<bgat>twb: a custom, platform-specifc repo at that
10:51-!-cmot [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
10:51<bgat>twb: as things are now, I'm debootstrapping from the standard repos, and then manually tweaking the rootfs before booting and running the second stage on the target
10:52<bgat>twb: maybe I should run this same question past the emdebian guys...
10:52-!-kaziem [~devnull@] has joined #debian
10:52<twb>bgat: oh, I see.
10:52<twb>bgat: if you're providing a static .deb yourself, in a private repo, that makes sense
10:53<twb>bgat: what wouldn't make sense is for Debian to try to provide such a package in its main archive.
10:53<twb>emdebian would definitely be a good place to take it
10:55<bgat>twb: actually, it might make sense. if there was a "n2100-platform-stuff.deb" package that you could include in debootstrap from the main repos, then that might allow people to create their n2100 rootfs using debootstrap rather than through the installer on an actual n2100. Might be a way to do such platform-specific stuff without disturbing the generic packages at all

10:56-!-greg42 [] has joined #debian
10:57<bgat>twb: one way towards the solution is to hack the generic packages to make them platform-specific, and then have platform-specific repos. those obviously can't go back into the main archives. But if the changes can be implemented using platform-specific packages that sit alongside the main repo packages, then those _could_ go into the main repos without distrurbing anyone
10:57<bgat>twb: there's no reason I can't go about things that way--- it's what I'm doing now. just mulling over ways to make things more package-centered

12:01<Cadmium01>Goldline, is above a reply to my question?
12:02<prahal>ctrl+alt+F1 then to go back ctrl+alt+F7 (consoles F1 to F6, X above)
12:02<Goldline>Its ctrla a+d through putty
12:02<fnmueller>Goldline: well, if you can configure a gameserver (which I somehow doubt), then you would realise how similar ubuntu and debian are (just that ubuntu has some ugly patches and shps less stable but more bleeding edge)
12:02<Cadmium01>prahal, thanks
12:02<Goldline>is it faster?
12:02<fnmueller>Goldline: therefore - if you can configure a server - it should not make much of a difference
12:02<prahal>Goldline, this command you told would restart the computer ... funny :/
12:03<Goldline>Im using that through putty
12:03<prahal>is d delete ?
12:03<prahal>oh sorry :)
12:03<twb>Has anybody built pbuilder-like infrastructure on top of libvirt (esp. lxc)?
12:03<Cadmium01>I love linux
12:04<Goldline>But you cannot tell me which one of the two is faster?
12:04<prahal>twb, qemubuilder ?
12:04*twb looks
12:04<Cadmium01>Goldline, Debian is Faster.
12:04<Goldline>Thats also what i though -:)
12:04<Cadmium01>THe quality of the questions determines the quality of the answer
12:04<Goldline>but i want exactly sure
12:04<fnmueller>Goldline: no, I think noone can. There are just too many specifics in this question.
12:04<prahal>Goldline, network bandwidth should not be different (this is the kernel after all ... one could have more up to date patches or less stables ones)
12:04<twb>Goldline: you have to benchmark it yourself.
12:05<Goldline>Ubuntu is build upon debian so i thought that debian would be faster because thats the core
12:05<Cadmium01>the fact is he wants to use Debian but is unsure of speed, I say the difference in resources and speed could be so trivial that in any case usign a Debian would be much more stable and thus preferred choise
12:05<Goldline>less services / ram required

12:07<Goldline>Are the terminal commands the same as ubuntu's ?
12:07<fnmueller>Goldline: pls, just don't admin a server if you don't know the answer to your question
12:07<twb>prahal: nod.
12:07<twb>Goldline: mostly, yes.

12:11-!-WofFS [~WofFS@] has left #debian []
12:11<twb>prahal: it's basically a bunch of iptables-restore chunks and a little python to read/write one end-user chunk.
12:11<twb>Goldline: and iptables wrapper, or bare iptables, can do that.
12:11<Goldline>Btw i always set the ssh port to a port above the first 1056 ports
12:12<Goldline>22 is well-known by hackers
12:12<twb>Goldline: ITYM 1024.
12:12-!-chealer [] has joined #debian
12:13<Goldline>Theres no UFW in Debian 5.0 ? cuz ur taling about ip tables / wrappers
12:13<prahal>that s why I only allow a white list of users on ssh server
12:13<twb>Goldline: ufw is an iptables wrapper.
12:13<prahal>not perfect but it avoids to leave open test accounts or such
12:14<prahal>knock is an option I ought to have installed ... I am lagging
12:15<twb>prahal: IIRC shorewall doesn't understand -m pknock yet.
12:15<fnmueller>hmm, I don't konw about port knocking... it is not inherently more secure and imo just adds a layer of obvuscation. I rather disable interactive login .. therefore login via keys.

12:23<Goldline>on port 3306 tcp
12:24<fnmueller>twb: yup, It's a term (don't beat me) coined by steeve gibbs
12:24<twb>kop: with -m pknock you can allegedly use HMAC256-based symmetric crypto in the knock. I'm too asleep to know if that actually helps.

12:25<fnmueller>I mean steve gibson
12:25<Goldline>Thats what i wanted to ask can you helpme installing xrdp on my machine
12:25<Goldline>to allow rdp
12:25<Goldline>what i ment
12:26<twb>kop: because xrdp currently blows huge chunks, and just bridges rfb-based VNC, so you lose RDP's advantages of not being purely damage rasters.
12:26<petemc>xrdp is shite
12:26<kop>twb: Yeah, ok. But what's the point in knocking then? May as well just put the crypto in the connection. It's not like spread-spectrum radio where traffic analysis is thwarted.
12:26<Goldline>Can you install it for me if you wanted too?
12:26<twb>Goldline: I'd avocate rolling with an X VNC export, and a VNC client on your wossname.
12:26<prahal>Goldline, should be . Let s check vino
12:27<twb>kop: NFI
12:27<prahal>else I bet NX does it
12:27<twb>Goldline: obviously X doesn't belong on a server anyway, so you might as well just use PuTTY.

13:34<rudi_s>!tell mattyh88 about ftp must die
13:34<rudi_s>mattyh88: If possible you should use SSH to transfer the files.
13:35<mattyh88>rudi_s why ssh? :)
13:35<rudi_s>mattyh88: Because it's secure and FTP is not.
13:35<Lanz>Nah, FTP still has merit... SSH has a lot more overhead...
13:35-!-atsalakwtos [] has quit []
13:35<bremner>Lanz: and this matters when?
13:35<rudi_s>Well, you can either get security or speed, but SSH is IMHO fast enough ..
13:35<mattyh88>rudi_s: i don't really need it to be secure :)
13:36<rudi_s>Lanz: And by the way, read !ftp must die, ftp isn't so fast ..
13:36<Lanz>If you have a lot of network traffic, SCP transfers can sometimes just drop
13:36<mattyh88>as it's being blocked from outside
13:36<rudi_s>mattyh88: Then use SSH because it's cool ;-)
13:36<mattyh88>(port 21 is)
13:36<rudi_s>mattyh88: SSH is port 22.
13:36<mattyh88>i know
13:36<mattyh88>that's blocked too :p
13:36<mattyh88>by my ISP
13:36<mattyh88>but just trying to configure ftp in a right way :)

13:37<mattyh88>good evening Verre : )
13:37<Verre>ha :)
13:37<rudi_s>mattyh88: If your ISP doesn't allow you to use your page securely you should IMHO switch to one who does.
13:37<Verre>I have question about cp
13:37<Verre>cp command I mean
13:37<Lanz>Got 1:37pm here in Ontario, Canada ;)
13:37<Lanz>Good afternoon
13:38<Verre>7:37pm in finland =)
13:38<mattyh88>rudi_s, it's just cuz i got a home-isp-account, that doesn't allow me to normally run a ftp server @home :)

13:41<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.

13:41<mattyh88>so, now when I login to my ftp server, it shows me /home/ftp and i want it to show /var/www
13:41-!-grochap [~grochap@] has joined #debian
13:41<Verre>ok so the question, I have debian system and gallery software and I'm backing up my photos weekly to a memorystick with command cp -uRv /home/path-to-photos/ /mnt/memorystick >> /home/xxx/changed.txt. I have about 6000 photos but there are 176 photos which say "cp: cannot create regular file XXX File exists". any ideas why this is happening?
13:41<rudi_s>mattyh88: I'm just not sure why you want to go through the difficulty setting up a ftpd (and insecurity if not done properly) when SSH provides a simple/fast/secure way to do it.
13:42-!-JohGro [~johan@] has left #debian []
13:42<mattyh88>rudi_s, doesn't matter .. hasn't got to be secure as everything just passed on my local network :)
13:42<titan8990>Verre: you probably want to use rsync there.. to only copy new or changed photos
13:42<rudi_s>Verre: I'm not sure, but for that use case you should have a look at rsync. It makes syncing the directories easy and fast and it only copies files when necessary.
13:42<khades_>any uzbl users?
13:42<cahoot>Verre: the obvious explanation is excluded?
13:42<Verre>actually I tried itt oday with problems with the same 176 photos
13:43<rudi_s>mattyh88: Ok, I can't force you to setup a secure system ..
13:43<Verre>I just don't get what the problem is with those photos
13:43<mattyh88>rudi_s :)
13:43<cahoot>Verre: how are they named?
13:44<cahoot>Verre: like imn_xxx.xx or something more informative?
13:44<sney>mattyh88: it's user accounts and home directories. read up on those and you'll understand how to fix it. and if this is just a LAN server, then yeah who cares if it's secure
13:44<Verre>eg. DSC04506.JPG or IMG_5018.JPG

18:36<tholmith>i edited /etc/xdg/user-dirs.conf and now filename_encoding is set to locale, also ~/.config/user-dirs.locale contains: ro_RO, which is the locale i use atm, but the folders defined in ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs are still named in english. i did run xdg-user-dirs-update and i also have relogin into gnome. am i doing something wrong? should i just edit ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs and set the names in curent locale?

19:37<johnkeates>I think so, but the best way to go at it is to tell what happens when you try to access the website
19:38<supaman>ahh .. of course :-)
19:38<supaman>I get a "The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading."
19:38<johnkeates>that means that the webserver didn't like you very much
19:38<supaman>the feeling is starting to be mutual ;-)
19:38<johnkeates>is this happening with all https websites?

23:03<amitz>second question, I need to run a script before debian automatically wakes network interfaces. I have tried putting the script in /etc/init.d and set its run level to default to 19, but it runs after networks are waked up. Should I set it lower? I'm afraid I will break the system such that single level boot can't even work.

23:23<amitz>rudi_s_: but that means I will run it everytime I up a network device? I prefer to run it once for the whole session, if I can.

23:34<johnfg>hi folks
23:34<johnfg>I'm not getting any response in evolution, so i'll ask this question concerning debian lenny 5.04 and evo.
23:35<johnfg>I backed up my settings on fedora 12, but the evo there's a newer version. The debian evo can't read the adress book.
23:35<johnfg>Anyone know of a workaround for this?
23:36<dkr>enter your settings manually?
23:37<dkr>there aren't hat many. name of mail server and whether to use ssl tls or whatnot... :)

23:38<johnfg>dkr: The problem is, I'm not sure where the settings for the address book are, not in Preferences.
23:38<johnfg>And that's where the error is, saying that the location is nul.
23:38<dkr>oh, for address book can't you use export/import feature? (I don't use evolution personally)

23:43<johnfg>dkr: That's what I did, backed up settings (equivalent to export), but the different versions is where the problem lies, methinks.

23:44<johnfg>dkr: I used thunderbird in fedora for quite a while, I suppose I should give it a try in debian, eh?
23:44<johnfg>Any special caveats?
23:45<dkr>not really, icedove is just a namechange, :)
