00:00-!-bja [] has quit [Quit: Good night sweet heart it's time to go. Odo di odo]
00:00-!-edbian [~ed@] has quit [Quit: Bye]
00:00-!-Andrew26 [] has joined #debian
00:01<Andrew26>anyone able to answer a filesystem question?
00:01<Tom__>try us!
00:01-!-PlainFlavored [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:02<Andrew26>I have 3 servers each with 6hdd's in them, I want to be able to make all systems into 1 large file system thats expandable, any sugestions?
00:02<Frenger>TCW: output it as follows: VGA compatible controller Intel Corp. Auberndale/Haverndale integrated Graphics Controller (Revision 12)
00:03<Tom__>Andrew: That's like a clustering filsystem or something. There's Coda and others in the kernel
00:03<TCW>Frenger, never heard of that before... must be very new then and maybe lennys X does not support that chip yet, ask google
00:04<Tom__>It should work under VESA if nothing else
00:04<TCW>should yes
00:04-!-goody [~titicola@] has quit []
00:04<Frenger>The chip is an intel i3, it came out in January I think.
00:04<Frenger>Sorry but what is VESA?
00:05<Tom__>VESA is a 2D video standard, roughly
00:05-!-hybrid-kernel [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:05<TCW>Frenger, a default gfx mode that almost all gfx cards / chipssupport
00:05<Andrew26>Frenger, trying to get video working on a laptop?
00:05<Frenger>Nope, just installed Debian and trying to get it to show up on the monitor :)
00:06<Tom__>Andrew26: This has more than I've heard of, I've heard of Andrews and Inter-Mezzo and Coda
00:06<TCW>Andrew26, you want to make one big fs out of three separate machines?
00:06<Andrew26>TCW: yes
00:07<Andrew26>Tom__: thats more then what I have found, thanks!
00:07<Frenger>I'm a little confused. How would I go about installing/using VESA?
00:08<TCW>isn't oracle coding a cluster fs?
00:08<TCW>Frenger, handcrafting a xorg.conf file
00:08<Tom__>Frenger: VESA is if you can't get the right drivers for your video card... last resort. Your X server already comes with a VESA driver that would just have to be enabled in that case
00:08<Andrew26>They are, its a part of the ZFS system but I tried using gluster with a ZFS, but unable to make them connect to each other
00:08<TCW>Frenger, a very very basic xorg.conf would be enough though
00:10<nostmith>Frenger, it should work without xorg.conf...
00:10<TCW>Andrew26, oracles-cluster-fs-which-name-I-forgot is part of ZFS fromsun?!
00:10-!-nixeagle [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:11<Frenger>hmm, I've never done that sort of thing before. is IRC the best way to learn to do this?
00:12<Tom__>Frenger: No :-)
00:12<Andrew26>Oracle bought sun
00:12<Frenger>I didn't think so
00:12<Tom__>Oracle bought Sun? Man, I've been living under a rock
00:12<Frenger>that was a while ago wasn't it?
00:12<Tom__>No wonder the virtualbox web site seemed to be both sponsored by Oracle and Sun
00:13<Andrew26>yeah, Oracle Solaris is the OS name now.
00:13<TCW>WTF?! Oracle bought Sun?!
00:13<Frenger>come on you guys
00:13<Frenger>this is old news
00:14<Tom__>Frenger: I don't know how to get your X to work. Maybe try here another time
00:14-!-dserban_ [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:14<TCW>Frenger, IRC has the benefit of living people, who can answer questions
00:14<Andrew26>Frenger: what Videocard do you have?
00:14<Frenger>I don't have a video card.
00:15<Andrew26>well that solves that answer
00:15<nostmith>Frenger, and which debian release you use?
00:15<TCW>Frenger, you have one, it is just onboard but you still have one
00:15-!-icebrain [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:15<Tom__>He says lspci outputs "Intel Corp. Auberndale/Haverndale integrated Graphics Controller (Revision 12)"
00:15<Frenger>I meant I didn't have a separate one.
00:15-!-brylie [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:15<Andrew26>how about this, what model of laptop/desktop are you working with?
00:15<TCW>Frenger, and THAT is something completely different :)
00:16<TCW>Andrew26, home grown
00:16<Frenger>nostsmith: I'm using a release from here that someone showed me (I forget who)
00:16<nostmith>uname -a
00:16<TCW>Frenger, it is debian stable with just a newer kernel
00:17<Andrew26>What mobo are you using Frenger?
00:17<Tom__>Sun bought Tarantella in 2005, too (formerly the original SCO)
00:17<Frenger>Andrew: it's a Gigabyte 1156
00:18*nostmith is happy 'cus Sun was bought by Oracle and not by Novell.
00:18<TCW>Tom__, yeah... that one I knew and does confuse me still... I have a hard time seeing the line there between Sun, SCO, Tarantella and all the others in the mix
00:19<TCW>And especially the rights of unix (which brings AT&T and Novell into the mix too)
00:19<nostmith>Frenger, do you have a /etc/X11/xorg.conf file?
00:20<Frenger>I would have to check, I did a fresh install and haven't touched a thing
00:21-!-tuv [] has left #debian []
00:22-!-Texou [] has quit [Quit: WeeChat 0.3.2-dev]
00:23-!-psych787 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:26-!-mode/#debian [+l 386] by debhelper
00:26<TCW>Frenger, how far is the other computer away?
00:26<nostmith>Frenger, you might want to generate one if you don't have. as root do: Xorg -configure
00:27-!-hitchup [] has joined #debian
00:27<Frenger>Sorry, I was doing something else. The other computer is very close by
00:27<Frenger>unfortunately, No such file or directory
00:27<TCW>Frenger, I'd just suggest using ssh...
00:28<TCW>Frenger, that is neither fortunate nor unfortunate, just run Xorg -configure as suggested by nostmith and you will have one :)
00:29<Frenger>and once that's done...?
00:29<nostmith>then you can use it to adjust some things
00:29<TCW>Frenger, edit it?
00:29<Frenger>alright. I'll give it a shot.
00:30<Andrew26>Tom__: That coda FS looks like the right thing, thank you testing it on VM now

00:31<ml|>krebipeti: use a pastebin and someone may help you

00:32<krebipeti>please help stuck
00:34<dba>you didn't show any error.
00:34<krebipeti>that's it
00:34<krebipeti>i try to find the error...but i can't locate it
00:35<krebipeti>my debian live-helper stuck for many hour
00:35-!-Frenger [] has joined #debian
00:35-!-hybrid-kernel [] has joined #debian
00:35<Tom__>Andrew26: If it works you're welcome. There's also AFS and Lustre. Apparently Lustre's good... I seem to recall
00:35<Frenger>sorry for that, i've moved both computers to the same room
00:35<TCW>Frenger, why the hell that? :)
00:36<dba>krebipeti: read all of this:
00:36<krebipeti>i've been try to rebuild the ISO...but stuck
00:36<Frenger>I can't configure xorg though, I get command not found
00:36<krebipeti>oke...i'll read it
00:36<krebipeti>dba: thx
00:36<TCW>Frenger, after issueing what command?
00:37<Frenger>xorg -configure
00:37<TCW>Frenger, Xorg
00:37<TCW>a BIG X
00:37<TCW>Frenger, all unixoid sstems are very case sensitive
00:37<Frenger>ah i see
00:37<TCW>systems even
00:37<Frenger>i should learn to pay attention to that kind of thing
00:39<TCW>Frenger, what is strange?
00:40<nostmith>Xorg is not installed? haha
00:40<Frenger>after issuing Xorg -configure I was prompted to edit the file I had just created and when I did my screen returnd to the original error message about frequency
00:40<Tom__>that is strange
00:41<TCW>Frenger, huh? How did the creation of xorg.conf leave singleuser mode and start X?
00:41-!-hybrid-k1rnel [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:42<Frenger>I've got no clue. Is it possible the problem is with the monitor? The message is bouncing around the screen like monitor messages usually do, and it's quite old compared to the rest of the system
00:43<nostmith>what exactly is the message?
00:43<Frenger>I bought it second hand, but it worked with other distros on another machine>
00:43<Frenger>I will copy it
00:43<tazz>Hey quick question, why does a dir need '+x' perms to cd into it?
00:44<Frenger>Frequency out of range: 90KHz / 60Hz Please change the display mode to 1280 x 1024 with 60Hz
00:44<TCW>tazz, +x means execute and for directories it is the right permission for cd-ing
00:44<Tom__>Tazz: Design of Unix. Why? Because CDing into it is different from reading it, I suppose, and Unix may as well have done soemthing with the permission bit
00:45<tazz>TCW, Tom__ i see...
00:45<Tom__>Tazz: Useful protection bit...
00:46<Frenger>TCW: I've gone back into single user mode and input Xorg -configure
00:46-!-firefox [] has joined #debian
00:46-!-vsayer [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:46<TCW>Frenger, why again?
00:46<nostmith>Frenger, do you have a posibility to change the resolution of the monitor? some buttons or something?
00:46<Andrew26>Well thanks for the info on the FS and nice chattin, TTYL
00:46<tazz>yea i just did chmod -x and suddenly i cant cd into any dir. :p didnt knew we need 'x' to cd into those dirs :)
00:46-!-vsayer [] has joined #debian
00:46<Tom__>Andrew: You're welcome
00:47-!-Andrew26 [] has left #debian []
00:47<Frenger>I get a screen that say my xorg.conf file is /root/ To test the server, run X -Config /rood/
00:47-!-nemesis [] has joined #debian
00:47-!-ZeZu [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:47<Frenger>i did it again because I couldn't remember what this screen said and couldn't go back with that frequency message.
00:47-!-nemesis [] has quit []
00:48<nostmith>and the result is?
00:48<TCW>Frenger, ok... next time first ask then do :)
00:48-!-edbian [~ed@] has joined #debian
00:48<TCW>Frenger, how did you modify xorg.conf?
00:48<nostmith>he didn't
00:48<Frenger>well I didn't modify it...
00:49<Frenger>I ran the command 'To test the server...'
00:49<TCW>Frenger, why should the outcome differ?
00:49<nostmith>the point is. did it work?
00:49<TCW>Frenger, Xorg did create a xorg.conf with the same values it would choose automatically
00:50-!-mattcarlson [~matt@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:50<Frenger>I assume it wouldn't, which is why I didn't run it a second time. The screen is still in front of me
00:50<TCW>and as "automatically" your screen says "mode not supported bla bla..."
00:50<Frenger>It's a command prompt. Would this be where I modify the file I previously created?
00:50<TCW>Frenger, yes
00:51<Frenger>alright, that makes sense.
00:51-!-edbian [~ed@] has quit []
00:51<TCW>Frenger, are you familiar with any console editors?
00:51-!-mark__ [~mark@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:52<Frenger>I would have to say no. I'm a recent convert to gnu/linux though I have a passing familiarity with the command prompt from mac osx
00:52-!-ZeZu [] has joined #debian
00:52-!-asdlgfj [] has joined #debian
00:52<TCW>Frenger, check "nano"
00:54<Frenger>alright, something happened. GNU nano 2.0.7, followed by a prompt and various commands at the bottom (get help, exit, etc)
00:54<nostmith>pres Ctrl+X and exit
00:54<nostmith>you need to: nano /root/xorg.conf
00:54<TCW>Frenger, ctrl+x and then run "nano /root/xorg.conf" :)
00:54<nostmith>sorry. nano /root/
00:55<TCW>oh yes... :)
00:55<Tom__>okay, I have a totally separate question... Do I need to get something called Boot Camp in order to dual boot Mac OS X and GNU/Linux on my Imac?
00:55<Frenger>i can help with this :)
00:55<Frenger>you just need the rEFIt bootloader
00:56<asdlgfj>o> Lets compare Haiti's earthquake with Mexicali's. Haiti Quake: 7.0 Mexicali Quake: 7.2 Puerto Principe Population: 2 Million Mexicali Population: 800,000 Haiti Death Toll: 300,000 Mexicali Death Toll: 4 Conclusion: Haitian apes are so retarded that even the buildings of their rich fell, including their monkey president. Meanwhile, the buildings of the poor in Mexicali generally held up. Haitian Coons, nIgGG
00:56<asdlgfj>GEerrs and Jigaboos = FAIL!!!!!!!!!!! Join Chimpout Forum!
00:56-!-asdlgfj [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:56<Tom__>Okay, I'll look that up
00:56<Frenger>the partition your drive
00:56<Tom__>My drive is already partitioned exactly in half with Mac OS X on the first half, though I'm willing to rearrange that or anything else, hypothetically
00:57<Frenger>you want to install rEFIt on the OSX partition, and once that's done you install your distro of choice from a live cd
00:57<Frenger>in my experience MEPIS worked best on imacs
00:57<Frenger>I couldn't get many others to work with wireless
00:58-!-edbian [~ed@] has joined #debian
00:58<Tom__>huh... okay, I never thought of that
00:58<Frenger>any others I should say
00:58-!-diggy [~digger@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:58<Tom__>(using something other than Debian)
00:58<Frenger>they also have documentation on their site for mac users
00:58-!-dserban [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:59<Frenger>I think I tried to instal debian and it didn't work from a very early point
00:59<Frenger>ubuntu got up to the partitioner before it decided it didn't want to cooperate and fedora had some other problem
01:00<TCW>debian runs fine on my mac... but I must admit it is a g3 :)
01:01<Frenger>I almost got haiku to run on my imac, but their bios only accepted ps/2 keyboards. that was a sad day for me
01:02<Tom__>I'm sorry :-)
01:03<Frenger>regarding my earlier problem I would appear now to be reading the file: /root/
01:03<Frenger>thanks, i have hope for future releases though :)
01:04<TCW>Frenger, hm?
01:05<Frenger>I did this "nano /root/"
01:05<TCW>Frenger, aaaand?
01:05-!-vsayer [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
01:05<Tom__>Frenger: on the off chance that this will work, if you can find the KHz and Hz settings and change them to 90 and 60 (you can comment out the old lines) and comment out every resolution that isn't 1280x1024 in the screen section... go ahead :-)
01:05<Frenger>i see
01:06-!-vsayer [] has joined #debian
01:06<Frenger>is this the interface to read and edit files in singleuser mode?
01:06-!-krebipeti [~a@] has left #debian []
01:07-!-tzafrir_laptop [~tzafrir@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:07<nostmith>nano is a text editor. there is also vi
01:08-!-ckt1g3r [] has quit [Quit: Saindo]
01:08<Tom__>Frenger: Yes.
01:09<Frenger>i might have something here.
01:09<Tom__>Frenger: You can also use more, less, or that new one, most just to view, or lynx or (e)links or w3m, in all text modes or terminal windows
01:10<Tom__>Frenger: And you can use nano, joe, vi, vim, nvi, elvis, emacs, emacs21, xemacs for editing in all text modes or terminals and most of those also have X clients
01:10<Tom__>blah blah blah where are you now?
01:10<Frenger>under Device it gives me various driver options, one of which is <freq>: Hz/kHz/MHz
01:10<nostmith>Frenger, here's my xorg.conf. compare it with yours.
01:11<nostmith>not all the things in there are needed though
01:11-!-jscinoz [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
01:11<Frenger>alright, it looks pretty simila
01:12<nostmith>look at Section "Screen"
01:12-!-gaurav [] has joined #debian
01:12<nostmith>and Section "Monitor"
01:12-!-magnetic_ [] has joined #debian
01:14<Frenger>Mine has almost nothing under monitor
01:15<Frenger>Identifier, VendorName, ModelName with generic names next to each of them
01:15<Frenger>and that is all
01:16<nostmith>HorizSync and VertRefresh is what you need to add in there. check the back of your mnonitor or the manual if you still have it.
01:16<Tom__>He can just use the frequencies the displayed error told him to use, can't he?
01:16<Frenger>I knew buying a (very reasonably priced) secondhand monitor on craigslist would have an eventual downside
01:17-!-vsayer [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:17<nostmith>does it has anything printed on the back? name, model etc?
01:17<Frenger>I'm looking it up now.
01:17-!-vsayer [] has joined #debian
01:18-!-tazz [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:18-!-mxh [~mxh@] has joined #debian
01:19<Frenger>what about Tom's suggestion though
01:19<nostmith>i have no idea if it will work
01:20<Frenger>HorizSync and VertRefresh aren't measured in Hz and pixels are they? I don't think it's the same information
01:20<nostmith>in Section "Screen" add Option "metamodes" "1280x1024_60 +0+0"
01:21<nostmith>not sure about those 2. if no info on the monitor is kinda hard to guess...
01:21<Frenger>yeah, the power cord happens to be blocking the model number if you'll believe that...
01:21-!-jscinoz [] has joined #debian
01:22<Frenger>for me under screen I have several subsections "display" each with Viewport and Depth
01:22<Frenger>the depth changes on each one
01:23<Tom__>You can ignore those
01:23<TCW>Frenger, see it may help
01:23<Frenger>I'm adding what nostmith suggested below them
01:24<Tom__>You only need one
01:25<Frenger>Can they stay put or should I delete them?
01:25-!-magnetic_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:25<Tom__>I guess they can stay put
01:25-!-vsayer [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
01:26-!-vsayer [] has joined #debian
01:27<nostmith>try HorizSync 63.60 and VertRefresh 60.00 in Section "Monitor"
01:27<Tom__>It's okay if your "Monitor" section has only generic names
01:27<nostmith>or even HorizSync 63.60
01:28<Tom__>You can put in HorizSync 90 and VertRefresh 60 and that might be enough to get your X working
01:28<Tom__>er yeah hi
01:29<Frenger>ok so with those values in horizsync and vertsync and the options I added under 'Screen" should I give it another shot?
01:30<Frenger>and a quick question for the syntax, it looks like this (one line):
01:30<Frenger>Option "metamodes" "1280x1024_60 +0+0"
01:31<Tom__>okay but wait
01:31<Frenger>is each one of those a seperate option on a new line
01:31<Frenger>i learned my lesson, first ask then do :)
01:31<Tom__>yes, but the sync options go in the monitor section and the metamode goes in the screen section (right?)
01:31<nostmith>compare with my xorg.conf
01:32-!-edbian [~ed@] has quit [Quit: Bye]
01:32<Tom__>if your screen goes to the error message again, try pressing ctrl+alt+backspace to force X to close, you should get your command prompt back... in fact you have to do this even if it works
01:32<Frenger>its consistent with yous
01:32<Frenger>but wait
01:32<Frenger>first I have to save this file correct? and exit nano?
01:32<Frenger>no need to save?
01:33<nostmith>do that and you'l save it. :)
01:33-!-mxh [~mxh@] has quit [Quit: 暂离]
01:33<Frenger>oh, that was evident
01:33<Frenger>alright I'm at my command prompt
01:34<nostmith>Xorg -config /root/
01:34<Tom__>Xorg -config I believe, remember ctrl+alt+backspace to force X to close
01:35-!-mhash [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
01:36-!-mode/#debian [+l 380] by debhelper
01:36<Frenger>it gave me the same error, but when I did ctrl+alt+backspace I now see a log of what's happened
01:36-!-Holborn [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
01:37-!-aranax [] has joined #debian
01:37<Tom__>did you try HorizSync 63.60 or 90?
01:37<Tom__>the log probably won't be interesting because it wouldn't record information about your screen not displaying... it doesn't know your screen's not displaying
01:38<Frenger>first up, (EE) unable to locate/open config file: "root/xorg/"
01:38<Frenger>I tried 63.60
01:38-!-ottoshmidt [~ottoshmid@] has joined #debian
01:38<nostmith>wrong path
01:38-!-mattcarlson [~matt@] has joined #debian
01:38<Frenger>that's what I thought
01:38<nostmith>it's /root/
01:38<nostmith>or it should. haha
01:39<Frenger>I must have stuck an extra / in there
01:39<Frenger>how would I change that?
01:39<nostmith>just retype the command
01:40<nostmith>Xorg -config /root/
01:40<TCW>Frenger, get used to tab-completion
01:40-!-Qebafhzn [] has joined #debian
01:40<Frenger>hmm, I got an error
01:41<Frenger>Problem parsing the config file
01:41<Qebafhzn>hey... debian noob here. i'm pretty well versed with computers, but i need some help with something...
01:41<nostmith>!ask Qebafhzn
01:41<nostmith>erm, dpkg is not here. haha
01:41<Qebafhzn>i'm not really installing anything
01:42<nostmith>nevermind. dpkg is a bot with some nice factoids.
01:42<Tom__>Frenger: Which errors?
01:42<Qebafhzn>i'm trying to figure out how to run Blender 2.52, but it won't let me open the app.
01:42<Frenger>oh wait
01:42<Qebafhzn>i moved the .blender to the /home folder and everything...

01:43<Frenger>it says using config file: /root/ parse erron or line 49 of section monitor. VertSync is not a valid keyword in this section
01:43<Qebafhzn>when i tryed to open the executable with the terminal, i got this:

01:44<Qebafhzn>do i have to move it to the /bin folder or something?
01:44<nostmith>i guess you installed it from source?

01:44<Qebafhzn>No. I just downloaded the compiled executable.

01:46<Qebafhzn>I well huh
01:47<nostmith>i guess you need that file, and make a symlink to it?
01:47<Qebafhzn>but yeah, sorry for being a linux virgin, but whenever i click on the "blender" executable, nothing happens
01:47-!-mark__ [~mark@] has joined #debian
01:47<Qebafhzn>what's a symlink?
01:48<nostmith>a symbolic link (also symlink or soft link) is a special type of file that contains a reference to another file or directory
01:48<Tom__>Qebafhzn: Is it marked executable (rwx)? Try running it from a terminal, cd whateverblenderdirectory ; ./blenderexecutable
01:49<Frenger>no dice, looking at the log file there are no errors but I do get: (WW) VESA(0): Failed to set up write conbining range (0xe3c00000,0x3f0000)
01:49<Frenger>and 4 other identical warnings with different values at the end

01:50<nostmith>Qebafhzn, if you really want details check
01:50<Tom__>Frenger: Nevermind those. Try changing HorizSync to 90 and doing all that again
01:51<Frenger>90 or 90.00
01:51<nostmith>not that it really counts, but to be sure. haha
01:52-!-centyx [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:53<Frenger>and I'll leave horizsync at 63.60?
01:53<nostmith>Qebafhzn, i guess you need to find that file and where it should be. then you can copy it where you want ti and make a symlink if you don't want to have it in the standard path.
01:53-!-mhash [] has joined #debian
01:54<Tom__>Frenger: You're changing the HorizSync and leaving the VertRefresh alone
01:54<nostmith>Qebafhzn, i'd try to use the 2.49.2 blender that is in debian's repos. it should work.
01:55<Qebafhzn>nostmith, This is going way over my head, honestly. I think I'll be uninstalling this and expanding th windows partition. uninstalling
01:55<Frenger>ok, I messed up. back in nano I have horiz at 90.00 and vert at 60.00, correct?

01:56<Frenger>nope, no dice

01:57<Tom__>Frenger: You can check less /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see what frequencies it actually tried to use...
01:58<nostmith>Qebafhzn, i guess you should try to compile it from source. would still be a better solution than using windows IMHO.
01:58<sney>Qebafhzn, nostmith: I guess there's a blender 2.5 alpha deb in experimental that might work better than trying to build it from source... maybe
01:58<Qebafhzn>nostmith, I am sure as hell not going to try source compiling.

04:31<nathan26>nobody can help me?
04:31<mxh>nathan26, what's your problem ?
04:31<nathan26>copy past :) -> hi, i've installed kde desktop environment but now i have problem with all my soft wich using gtk. When i want to run this kind of app, this error is returned : I ve installed codeblocks from the sources and i compile all the dep from the sources too
04:32<nathan26>i find many person with the same problem on the internet but i don't find a way to fix it

04:32<Gathond>einar_: the package is called xinit not xbase-clients, my mistake, but you shoudl probably follow the advice gsimmons came with, and install one of the desktop environments and it will take the rest along for the ride
04:32<mxh>I always use gnome.
04:33<einar_>no file
04:34<Gathond>einar_: aptitude install xinit
04:34<Gathond>it was a package name, not a command
04:34<einar_>dosnt work
04:34<einar_>no name or package named xinit
04:34<nathan26>mxh: in fact, if i changed for kde, it's cause i got a weired error at launch
04:35<einar_>ill just want to run my debian
04:35<einar_>but i cant cause of the crappy command startx wont work
04:35<Gathond>einar_: if you are at the command prompt technically debian is already running
04:35<nathan26>my gdm restart 6 times before return this : "gdm has beed restart 6 times in less than 90 seconds, there is maybe a problem. A new tentative in 2min..."

05:19<mxh>i found a free cd burner here :
05:19<einar_>i got a burner:P'
05:19<einar_>rar file is over 600mb
05:20<einar_>i could burn the folder or rar file tho
05:20<Ganneff>debian does not come with setup.exe and not in a rar file
05:20<Ganneff>if you want to have debian:
05:20<dpkg>There are CD-1 choices for various DEs (Desktop Environments) - there's one for GNOME, another for KDE, and one for XFCE/LXDE. For example; if you wanted the XFCE/LXDE CD-1 of Lenny, you'd grab -> debian-500-i386-xfce+lxde-CD-1.iso from the mirrors (if you were going for i386 arch). Also ask me about <installer firmware>, <release notes>, <ig>, <setup.exe>.
05:20<Ganneff>download an iso, burn that.

05:23<Ganneff>burn exactly that file to a cd. dont try to open it
05:23<mxh>iso file will appear as a rar file on xp

07:13<pilou>hi, do everyone know how wireshark detect the protocol for each packet (http, tcp, ...)?
07:13<tzafrir_laptop>pilou, have you actually tried?
07:14<tzafrir_laptop>wireshark is normally quite good and doesn't need hints
07:14<pilou>actually i'm writting a python script but I try to understand how to detect the protocol type (http, tcp, ...)
07:14<pilou>I saw wireshark detects it but try to understand how
07:15<dutchfish> => /usr/lib/wireshark/
07:15<tzafrir_laptop>tcp is a "protocol" (as in /etc/protocols). In that sense http is a "service" (as in /etc/services).
07:15<pilou>you're right but HTTP appears in the "protocol" column in Wireshark
07:16<Lethalman>http is a protocol

07:24<pilou>Actually I'm strying to understand if there is an information in the packet that indicates that it is HTTP or DNS or ???
07:24<dr|z3d>pilou: Try wireshark, see what you can see..
07:24<Lethalman>pilou, no, it's about guessing it
07:25<Gathond>pilou: of cause there is, for one in http the header starts with HTTP (after that first package wireshark assumes the rest of that tcp stream is a cuntinuation of that http conversation
07:26<pilou>If it is about guessing, that means I have to try regexp to catch "GET"/"HTTP" for HTTP, "HELO" for SMTP, etc. Is that right?
07:26-!-buques [] has joined #debian
07:26<Lethalman>Gathond, eh? there's no HTTP in the header
07:26-!-vsayer [] has joined #debian
07:26<Lethalman>pilou, you can rely on the port number simply
07:26-!-steve [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
07:27<Gathond>pilou: that is probably a bit too simple
07:27<Gathond>Lethalman: well the HTTP header itself contains that string, as well as a version
07:27<dutchfish>If you want to grasp wireshark, start simple with tcpdump and read up some tutors. Things like ARP, ports, proto's, connection tracking, iptables etc are basic stuff
07:27<Lethalman>Gathond, it's not enough you have to rely on the port number too
07:27<Gathond>its not in the TCP/IP header, no, but it is in the information if it wan't to track it
07:27<Gathond>Lethalman: wireshark does not assume anything about the ports I believe

07:28<Gathond>I've seen it track stuff as http regardless of the initial destination port
07:28<Gathond>it used the port numbers to track the conversation, but that is the TCP stream tracking kicking in
07:29<pilou>Agree with Gathond. Indeed, what aboout if server listens on a non-standard port like 8080 port http? Or even worst: 81?
07:29<Gathond>wireshark may be more likely to see it as http if is is port 80 or 8080

09:24<Iridur>how come writing to ntfs is dangerous?

09:24<Iridur>aptitude install ntfs-3g then?
09:25<chl>old: the very last time i heard is that ntfs-3g supports writing to ntfs already (since last year?).
09:25<old>Iridur: apt-get is quicker, but aptitude is OK too.
09:25<Iridur>installed it already (I love the package managers)

09:26<old>Iridur: So do I. ;-) You use it similarly to mount.
09:26<debfsckedup>ok, since debian doesn't seem to have good tools to identify the packages that contain files in the /etc, I wrote a script myself and already have a list of packages that I may need to reinstall

13:30<einar_>what now?'
13:30<mjk>nickzxcv: Note that *some* drives have a built-in offset between logical and physical sectors, so that partions starting in sector 63 are physically on sector 64 (which is 4k-divisible). Read the manual or the net for information about your drive.
13:30<nickzxcv>yeah, I think thats if I set a jumper
13:30<nickzxcv>which I haven't done
13:30<old1>einar_: Did you set your ESSID or it is some default value?
13:30<mjk>nickzxcv: Not sure, read the docs =)
13:31<mjk>nickzxcv: Anyway, aligning your partition to 4k boundaries would be counter-productive with such an automatic offset =)
13:31<nickzxcv>yeah, the label (paper) says that if I set the jumper its fine for a single partition, which is how it would be with offset in the drive right?
13:32<mjk>nickzxcv: Sounds like that, yeah.
13:33<einar_>I setted yes
13:33<einar_>but it didnt work
13:33<nickzxcv>so in parted, if unit is

15:11<bremner>ODDity: not recommended in general
15:12<ODDity>if I added the main contrib source of sid to apt to install the package I wanted would that be ok?

20:04<DebianWannaBeUser>Is Debian really better than Ubuntu?
20:05<klh>DebianWannaBeUser: this question is non-sens
20:05<drewdavis>Better for what?
20:06<DebianWannaBeUser>Stability and Speed of applications
20:07<DebianWannaBeUser>I'm using Ubuntu 9.10 now, and trying to decide if I should try Debian or the next LTS of Ubuntu when it's released
20:07<drewdavis>Gernerally speaking yes, but you're still asking a very broad question.
20:07<drewdavis>Unless you have reason to leave Ubuntu I'd go with LTS.
20:08<DebianWannaBeUser>Sounds good.

20:09<DebianWannaBeUser>I've also been hearing some bad press about Ubuntu, but I guess any OS could get that right?
20:10<DebianWannaBeUser>Is Broadcom wireless hard to setup in Debian? Or does it work out of the box like Ubuntu?
20:10<drewdavis>Yes, any project is going to have it's share of bad press. The question is does Ubuntu continue to meet your needs, and if not do you have reason to think Debian will?
20:11<DebianWannaBeUser>So far everything works fine for me, haven't had any problems. I think I'll stick with it thanks.
