00:02-!-johnfg [] has joined #debian
00:02<johnfg>I'm back from debian, going to check what release!
00:03<johnfg>What was that I needed to tell dpkg again?
00:03<Cygnus>ml|: ^^
00:03<johnfg>And there's no web browser?
00:03<johnfg>What's with that?
00:04<ml|>johnfg: /msg dpkg version
00:04<ml|>johnfg: so debian and other OS's boot fine?
00:04<ml|>Cygnus: thanks btw
00:05<johnfg>hooray! squeeze/sid.
00:05<johnfg>Where's our web browser?
00:05<ml|>!congratulate johnfg
00:05<dpkg>Huzzah johnfg, you did it!
00:05<Cygnus>johnfg: iceweasel?
00:05<ml|>what do you mean?
00:06<johnfg>What I mean, is that epiphany is no longer on my top menu, and I have no web browser in my Applications/Internet.
00:06<johnfg>I.e., my top Panel.
00:06<ml|>does it run from a terminal?
00:08-!-bja [] has joined #debian
00:09<johnfg>Nope, it won't run from the terminal. did safe-upgrade or full-upgrade remove it?
00:09<ml|>also /msg dpkg menu ; but that should be done at install time
00:10<ml|>johnfg: read /var/log/aptitude for what happened
00:10<ml|>if it got removed during upgrade
00:10-!-artista_frustrado [] has joined #debian
00:12<johnfg>Looks like it got removed because of some dependency issues.
00:12<johnfg>Maybe flash-player? or jre plugin?

00:18<johnfg>hey guys
00:19<johnfg>Sorry I had to bomb out, but system update was hungup, and I couldn't kill it without logging out. Is this a known bug?
00:19<ml|>all is fine?
00:19-!-addux [~addux@] has joined #debian
00:19<johnfg>ml|, Almost all :-)
00:19<ml|>what do you mean by that?
00:20<johnfg>btw, I don't expect squeeze to be quite as stable as lenny
00:20<johnfg>ml|, Well, I ran System/Administration/Update Manager, and it hung up, giving an error message and asking if I wanted to file a bug report.
00:21<johnfg>Usually, I just run aptitude, but thought I'd try the gui.
00:21<ml|>oh, don't use that, you mean synaptic?
00:21<johnfg>Right, synaptic.
00:22<ml|>and your system is upto date right?
00:22<ml|>and not a bad idea to file a bug report
00:22<johnfg>No, since Update Manager bombed, I didn't run synaptic. But I will now.
00:23<ml|>well, use aptitude for that them try again with synaptic
00:24<ml|>it should be upto date after what you did tho

00:40<johnfg>postgresql, i.e.
00:41<johnfg>Does the system use postgresql? I'm a mysql guy myself.

07:03<Lethalman>so as you said I think you need 32 bit libraries

08:02<jackz>so it's advised to migrate?
08:03<jackz>or not
08:04<jm_>not sure what the idea is - new install use it by default, but I forgot what happens on upgrades
08:05<babilen>works perfectly over here - you can fix the problems by running "aptitude purge ~c" that will remove all packages that were removed but not purged)
08:05<jm_>anyway, do you need those packages in rc state?
08:05<babilen>You can also just "aptitude purge PKG1 ... PKGN" for the problematic packages
08:05<gsimmons>jackz: After purging, run 'dpkg-reconfigure sysv-rc' to re-attempt the migration.

09:09<babilen>MrclX: Read up on LVM - it gives you the flexibility to change the "partitions" later .. If you think that you don't need such a huge /home than give the space to something else
09:09<babilen>MrclX: Where will be bulk of the data be saved?

09:10-!-buques [] has joined #debian
09:11<babilen>MrclX: Where will most of your data be saved? If you want to serve files, you might want to create a huge /srv volume group ...
09:11<dpkg>Debian follows the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard. The filesystem is categorized by purpose, not application. This allows, for example, the easy and efficient deployment of a read-only /usr area across a number of thin clients. See or install the 'debian-policy' package (/usr/share/doc/debian-policy/fhs/*), or

09:12<babilen>MrclX: If you have databases create a huge /var/lib/postgresql (or mysql) ..
09:13<MrclX>my data will be saved on a raid0 with 2x1,5tb hdds, when i get a 3rd/4th 1,5tb hdd i will make a raid5 out of it. and the system, debian, is on a 73gb scsi hdd.
09:13<babilen>It really depends on your usage - the good thing is that if you use LVM you can adapt the filesystem sizes to your needs later without problems
09:13<MrclX>hmm if i dont make it now i can do it later too, right? when i know more about servers and stuff than i might know what i need....
09:13<MrclX>ahh okay
09:13<MrclX>nice ;D
09:13<babilen>MrclX: Just read the LVM links dpkg mentioned - You will understand the merits of it ...
09:14<MrclX>okay thanks

09:21<MrclX>yes for the 3 tb i just want to make a huge dictory where all my stuff (films, music, pictures and stuff) comes in. and for nearly everything other i want to use the 73gb scsi hdd. cause i dont need much storage for my "server"-processes (i mean i have not much mysql databases or something). the main thing for me is to safe the date, than to stream to xbox360 and over the net on-deamand music from the /srv/. than a small webserver jus
09:21<MrclX>t for tests, not to make a running website. and than i want to to some stuff like game/voiceserver for the lan and other little things but non who need much of storage. so i want to be flexible with the partitions that i can make everything a bit ^^. and now ill see the lvm/fsh links. thanks.

10:20<dpkg>Broadcom BCM4312-based wireless LAN devices are supported by the <b43> driver. The BCM4312 low-power PHY (PCI-ID 14e4:4315) is supported as of Linux 2.6.32, see to provide the required firmware (not yet packaged, BTS #561450). Lenny users: for 2.6.32 kernel image packages, ask me about <bpo>. For BCM4312 LP-PHY support in earlier kernels, ask me about <wl>.

10:21<bellows>babilen: Thanks, is installing from a .deb similar to apt-get right?
10:21<babilen>bellows: Well, then create a backport yourself
10:21<snake>babilen: why so?
10:22<gsimmons>titan8990: Ah, np.
10:22<babilen>snake: You will have two trays then ...
10:22<nostmith>just don't enable notification area in gnome-panel
10:22<babilen>bellows: I don't quite understand the question. aptitude/apt-get downloads packages from the repos you configured. If you backport a package yourself, you would use "dpkg -i <pkg>.deb" to install it manually
10:23<snake>babilen: ditching the notification area is a non-issue : ) it's really what i wanted to do in the first place
10:23<babilen>snake: ok

10:49<madduck>if my sound driver loaded, alsamixer shows proper levels and nothing muted, no pulse/jack/whatever is loaded, no OSS modules are loaded, stuff plays alright, but there is no sound whatsoever… what else should I check?
10:49<madduck>(this is snd_hda_intel)
10:50<babilen>!alsa checklist
10:50<dpkg>1) add yourself to the 'audio' group (log out and log in again) 2) use alsamixer and unmute channels and raise levels (also try muting some channels & toggle jack sense) 3) arts or esound stopped? 4) OSS modules unloaded? 5) speakers on? 6) modprobe snd-pcm-oss 7) does "aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Noise.wav" work for root? Test your sound with aplay and a wav so codec issues don't confuse the situation. See also <list alsa users>.

14:33<dpkg>Due to Mozilla logos licensing, Mozilla software isn't DFSG-free, so Debian distributes Mozilla software with different logos.

15:44<Youchi>for netbios if i use a dns like maydns.local a netbios = maydns

16:26<ml|>User_: how much ram and how will you use the install for?
16:26<bja>kop: I bought the ps3 because i had the oportunity of playing with a cell procesor and also have some fun with the console. They cost 40% less today and they decided that if you paid more for that you are no good.
16:26-!-Cely_lapeke [] has quit []
16:27<User_>rendering and internet
16:27<Torsten_W>User_, then use 64bit
16:27<bja>kop: ignore me i am too angry to talk anything coherent about sony or the ps3
16:27<ml|>User_: then I'd use amd64
16:27<User_>ok :) thanks
16:28<bja>User_: amd64 works great, if you are using only 4gb you can still take your pick between i386 or amd64
16:28<bja>if you are planning on increasing memory then amd64 is the way
16:28<ml|>User_: or i386 with bigmem kernel
16:28<ml|>but it's not the same
16:28<Youchi>I think intel is better
16:29<User_>ok, what's bigmem kernel?
16:29<bja>Youchi: please stick to the sw side of the equation or else go to #hardware
16:29<ml|>dpkg bigmem
16:29<dpkg>For i386, -bigmem linux-images support up to 64 GB of RAM. If you have more than about 3.4 GB of RAM, install and use this to see everything past the sub ~3.4 GB limit (but with additional CPU overhead). Alternatively, if you have an <amd64> processor, use an amd64 kernel which doesn't need bigmem.
16:29<User_>;) thanks
16:30<bja>ohh, I don't know why i had this idea that 4 GB was the hardlimit for the i386 kernel
16:31<ml|>it is if you don't use bigmem kernel
16:31<Tom__>because it used to be?

17:53<cloacker>titan8990: i installed ifconfig & ifup tools and i edited /etc/network/interfaces but ifup requires a script in /etc/network/run
17:53<titan8990>!fglrx one-liner
17:53<dpkg>(on lenny) Ensure you have <non-free sources> added.

17:54<ml|>bremner_: one last thing, iirc amphi uses xmobar from testing and he has no issues
17:55<cloacker>titan8990: So i need the 2. nic for remote network installation
17:55<prophetein>titan8990: I installed everything except module assistant, but im going to modprobe the modules then try and start x
17:55<ml|>bremner_: he is not around now, but will try to remember to ask him when I see him
17:55<titan8990>cloacker: you actually don't need any network connection for the netinst so long as you don't select a task
17:56<titan8990>prophetein: module-assistant is what builds the module...
17:56-!-mode/#debian [+l 418] by debhelper
17:56<cloacker>titan8990: but i need a connection to the repositories and i want do a remote network installation from my desktop computer
17:57<titan8990>cloacker: IMO, your just making it hard on yourself
17:57<prophetein>titan8990: I didnt get any errors it said the module built successfully
17:57<titan8990>get it installed without the internet connection, then do what you need to after installation
17:58<titan8990>prophetein: what did you build it with if not module-assistant?

17:59<cloacker>titan8990: does the debian-504-i386-netinst.iso have everything without the need for internet connection to a repo?
17:59<titan8990>cloacker: yes, as long as you do not select a task (which you can do after the install)
17:59<prophetein>titan8990: apt had built the module with a script, like the driver package usually does.. didnt read the output I just know that it didnt fail..
18:00<titan8990>cloacker: however note that you will need to manually add the repos to /etc/apt/sources.list if you go that route (after install)

18:04<titan8990>prophetein: I'm pretty sure it was removed for a reason. IIRC that reason was due to some kind of xorg transition where fglrx just plain doesn't work in squeeze currently. You should check the BTS for the exact details on this issue

20:18<eldowan>I know, I know. I haven't had time to do an upgrade in some time. I'm looking to bring it up to current stable in the next few weeks, but this damn host is not making life easy.
20:18<valdyn>does sarge even have the token bucket filter?
20:19<eldowan>valdyn: I believe so, I know it supports htb and has iproute2
20:20<valdyn>Last updated: 7.12.2003
20:20<valdyn>( thats the tbh homepage, nice )
20:20<valdyn>eldowan: right, i see
20:20<ml|>I would make moving to stable first priority
20:20<amitz>I don't know the keyword to google it with little noise, any of you notice a bug where a deleted entry on /etc/apt/sources.list is still being included in apt-get update
20:21<eldowan>amitz: I've never noticed taht.
20:21<valdyn>amitz: that doesnt happen
20:21<ml|>amitz: checked bts?
20:21<valdyn>amitz: check /etc/apt/sources.list.d/* too
20:22<ml|>probably in that dir ^
20:22<eldowan>ml|: I'd like to make that a priority, but I've got a huge installation off this campus pending the beginning of next week. I'd like to allow the host to operate (Boss's Boss has an ipad) while I'm away and not have it bring the rest of the campus down. (only on a T1)
20:23<amitz>valdyn: ah, you're right, sorry. Didn't notice, probably new feature.
20:23<eldowan>valdyn: tbf sounds exactly what I need. This is what I was trying to remember earlier from an install a few years ago.

20:26<valdyn>eldowan: maybe you can use the wondershaper script though

21:56<miguel000>but its started by gdm
21:57-!-goodger [] has joined #debian
21:57<babilen>miguel000: Hmm, not sure. You typically do that in your .xsession (for fluxbox, xmonad, wmii, ...)
21:57<babilen>And then use "Use xinit script" within gdm
21:57<babilen>Not sure if there is another way
21:58<miguel000>this way sounds great
21:58<cloacker>how to configure new repositories without editing sources.list manually?
21:58<babilen>miguel000: The last line in that file typically read: "exec fluxbox" or so ... Which window manager do you use?
21:59-!-Apple [] has joined #debian
21:59<ml|>not sure, but for gdm you need to use ~/.gnomerc
21:59<miguel000>but i do not have ANY .xsession file in my home dir
21:59-!-Apple is now known as Guest1977
21:59<babilen>miguel000: You know that wmii is practically unmaintained? (*really* sad)
21:59<ml|>create it
22:00<miguel000>I didn't know that :(
22:00<sney>cloacker: what's wrong with editing sources.list? ... but if you have X you can use synaptig
22:00<sney>synaptic, that is
22:00<miguel000>so maybe its a bad choice to use it. I just installed it today because wanted to try this tiling thing
22:00<babilen>miguel000: anyway ... just read the documentation. wmii used some: "until wmii; do true done" or something like that
22:00<ml|>miguel000: use xmonad :)
22:01<babilen>miguel000: wmii is a great window manager, but the people behind mainly develop dwm these days. AFAIK only kris is working on wmii ...
22:01<babilen>miguel000: dwm, xmonad, awesome and i3 are alternatives. I am using xmonad (as is ml|)

22:02<babilen>miguel000: And you can just create the .xsession file ...
22:03<sney>cloacker: /msg dpkg mirrors
22:03<defi0n>ml|: fuse still refuses to mount the volume, perhaps i should try using a debian-based OS that comes with fuse?
22:03<babilen>miguel000: for xmonad: last line -> "exec xmonad" other lines "program &" (or any other fancy thing you want in there)
22:04<ml|>defi0n: so you tried what I suggested? is your user in the fuse group and logout the back in?
22:04-!-MrNaz [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
22:04<miguel000>the problem is, that i installed some visual login screen, that also atumatically logs me in on startup, and this thing calls my default window manager, and it doesnt use the .xsession and .xinitrc im afraid
22:04<miguel000>I didnt figure out yet, what config files it depends on
22:05<defi0n>i didn't relogin but i will try that (btw i added root to group 'fuse', or should i try this using a different user?)
