00:38<kop>Humm. I've been doing some reading. It seems that last summer xen failed to merge dom0 into the mainline and things have been static since. Now there's this quote ""There never were any attempts to get Xen into the kernel," wrote Citrix CTO and XenSource co-founder Simon Crosby last week in a blog." Seems like I was right to avoid xen after it got a MS injection and that KVM is really the way to go.
00:38<kop>(Or virtualbox etc if you don't have hardware support.)
00:39<bja>kop: guess you were right, i am still using kvm on intel, without the graphics so things work pretty well :)
00:40-!-alephnull [~alok@] has joined #debian
00:41-!-brylie__ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:42<kop>bja: It was easy to be "right". Both because as soon as MS sticks its finger in I reflexivly expect trouble and because I never had the hardware support anyway so it was mostly academic. :) MS money makes me wonder about joomla.... :-P
00:44<bja>kop: i don't remember where i read a rant about ms sticking its money and the projects collapsing because of that.
00:44-!-silice- [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:46<kop>bja: IIRC MS stuck some money into silk so they'd stay gpl v2 instead of moving to v3. Could be wrong. But silk could be a strong sharepoint rival....

00:48<bja>kop: sorry, i just can't remember. guess after a few hours sleep it will suddenly pop up.
00:48<kop>simonrvn: Yeah, but I'd be interesting if MS has learned how to crash FOSS projects. Otherwise all they've got is patent threats.
00:49<bja>kop: they are fast learners

00:50<simonrvn>easy to do. put some cash in, wait until the project is dependent on it, and then when they need more, withhold it. watch it shrivel.
00:50<bja>watch it bust
00:50<simonrvn>gov't does the same to community projects.
00:51<simonrvn>when the project begins to criticise the gov't, watch them not get funding anymore.
00:51<simonrvn>it's cruel, and sometimes deadly....

00:54<bja>simonrvn: i've seen them too many times in both ways huge corporations and also on goverments. I don't trus either of them
00:54<simonrvn>i volunteer or have volunteered at several community level orgs, so i know
00:55-!-Avalanche [] has left #debian []
00:57<simonrvn>e.g., the "aboriginal healing foundation" was meant to provide funding to community-run and based indigenous groups. the gov't killed it on march 31. the native womens' shelter here lost 1 or 2/3 of their funding; which meant they lost a rape councillor, an outreach worker, and another councillor.
00:57-!-Torsten_W [] has joined #debian
00:58<simonrvn>it was funded and set up by their gov't as a part response to the "apology" (apology my ass) for the residential schools.
00:58<simonrvn>(sorry, getting way off topic and i just realised where i'm typing this ;)
00:58<bja>simonrvn: want to continue this on ot?

05:17<stuckey>Hi all
05:17-!-AbsintheSyringe [~havoc@] has joined #debian
05:17-!-SleepingBeauty [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:18<stuckey>I was wondering, is there anyone who builds nvidia drivers for stable? Like, puts up .debs somewhere for people to download?
05:19-!-ZimmE [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
05:19<mjt>that'd be illegal i think
05:19<stuckey>Nvidia drivers are in the repos.
05:19<mjt>yah, hence my "hmm"
05:20<mjt>i went on checking
05:20<stuckey>Putting up a few .debs for stable/oldstable would solve the nvidia problem for anyone who could do dpkg -i
05:21-!-phep [] has joined #debian
05:21<mjt>well, debian discogrades usage of "random" external repositoriew
05:21-!-kinz [~agrimarke@] has joined #debian
05:21<mjt>(not that it's any better than using blobs from random oem site :)
05:22<stuckey>Sure. Well I think using a .deb made by a developer would be better than downloading blobs.

05:22-!-engy [] has joined #debian

05:23-!-engywook [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:23<mjt>i used to build debs for fglrx
05:23<mjt>they were on my repo which is externally visible
05:23-!-fabrianchi [~hachepe@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
05:24<mjt>but stopped doing that about 1.5 years ago, when radeon driver become useable
05:24<stuckey>A website with .debs would be easier I think.
05:24<mjt>that was exactly that - a website with .debs
05:24<mjt>luckly i don't have anything-nvidia here :)
05:25-!-qazwsx [~qazwsx@] has quit []
05:25<stuckey>Is there a list somewhere that one might ask a question like that?
05:25<stuckey>There are nvidia .debs in stable right -- but they're just really old or?
05:25<mjt>stable is old
05:26<mjt>almost whole of it :)
05:26<mjt>you need more recent drivers for more recent kernels
05:26<stuckey>debian/nvidia wiki doesn't say anything about why there aren't any debs

05:27-!-n3lab [~mielofon@] has joined #debian
05:28-!-knoppel [] has joined #debian
05:29<mjt>actually there appears to be .debs in -testing
05:30<knoppel>I can't mount ntfs partitions on testing
05:30<stuckey>I don't think you can "install nvidia" drivers from them though. There's nvidia-glx
05:30<stuckey>You need to build from source no matter what. And I don't know why that is.
05:31<mjt>it should match the kernel version for one
05:31<mjt>that's why there are packages like nvidia-kernel-2.6.26-2-amd64
05:31<stuckey>Yeah so that means building everytime insure you have matching versions.
05:31<stuckey>But in the case of stable, the kernel isn't changing.
05:32<mjt>for stable, use drivers from stable
05:32<mjt>like that one
05:32<stuckey>If you do, you may not be able to use the driver if your card is newer (not ancient).
05:33<mjt>i'm not sure more recent drivers support old kernels (and debian stable kernel is old by now)
05:33<stuckey>Is that true
05:34<mjt>in any way, maintaining that stuff requires quite some time and energy. Which are better spent elsewhere, IMHO :)
05:34<mjt>stuckey: again, I'm not *sure*. Not that I know there's no support, -- I don't
05:34<stuckey>mjt: is there a relevent mailing list? I could make a post.
05:35<stuckey>"can't get video drivers to work" is why most people don't like linux when they try it.
05:35-!-svnlto [] has joined #debian
05:35<mjt>try asking in #debian-x perhaps?
05:36<stuckey>didn't know that channel existed, thanks
05:36<knoppel>pleas help me with my ntfs problem
05:36<mjt>there's also debian-devel@lists.d.o, and a lot of other lists listed at
05:36<stuckey>knoppel: do you need to read or read/write?
05:36<mjt>in both cases it's ntfs-3g
05:37<knoppel>read atm but rw would be used at some point
05:37<knoppel>mjt: I installed it but no joy
05:37<mjt>stuckey: debian-x is a developers channel, not user-support channel. JFYI.
05:39<mjt>stuckey: also, take a look at the pts page - 190.53 are in -unstable since 10 Apr
05:39<mjt>stuckey: and they are installable
05:40<mjt>stuckey: also see #568952 - the maintainers are asking for help.
05:40<stuckey>Yes, of course. You have to build them though. My thought is that facilitating the instalation of nvidia drivers for users, to make it easier somehow, would be a worthwhile effort.
05:40<mjt>they are .debs
05:40<stuckey>Yes, you have to build them.
05:40<stuckey>It's source?
05:40-!-fabrianchi [] has joined #debian
05:40<mjt>kernel drivers will build automatically for you
05:41<mjt>or semi-automatically anyway
05:41<stuckey>With a little know-how, yes
05:41<mjt>when installed from the .deb
05:41<mjt>ok, in any way i'm out of here

06:24<dpkg>dist-upgrade tells apt to also install/remove packages when handling dependencies; security updates may require a dist-upgrade to install (they introduce new packages). Dist-upgrade does not mean changing from stable to testing; in lenny, aptitude calls dist-upgrade "full-upgrade" to remove this confusion. Read man apt-get carefully. Also see <why not dist-upgrade> <sarge->etch> <etch->lenny> <lenny->squeeze> <full-upgrade>

08:52<jordanm[titan]>lucitu: the netisnt does prompt to create a regular user, unless maybe you used preseeding or something
08:52<dpkg>For GRUB: 1) press 'e' to edit the kernel setting in the grub command line (add 'init=/bin/sh' to the end of it) 2) 'fsck' your root file system, 3) 'mount -o remount,rw /', 4) 'passwd root' 5) 'mount -o remount,ro /' 6) 'reboot -d -f' (exec /sbin/init should work); For LILO: 1) 'linux init=/bin/sh' at the LILO boot prompt (hold Shift while booting), steps 2-6 are the same; For yaboot: 1) 'Linux init=/bin/sh' at yaboot prompt.

09:52<ircipimp>i want to test installation of a couple of .deb packages built from a single source package using pbuilder. However piuparts tries to install each specified package without taking care of any dependencies. neither installs it apache and other needed packages using apt-get, nor does it take care of my packages depending on each other.
09:52<ircipimp>the test-machine is running ubuntu karmic, but pbuilder should work there as well, shouldn't it?

09:55<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. Even if the channel happens to be less helpful, support for distributions other than Debian is offtopic on #debian. See also <based on debian>.

09:59<jordanm[titan]>no idea if there pbuilder is capable of building and compiling in a debian release
10:00<ircipimp>ok, i thought the whole buildsystems were totally compatible. maybe that's not the case then.
10:00<jordanm[titan]>ircipimp: but pbuilder will never install runtime depends on your machine, it sounds like your expecting it to
10:00-!-ravenbird [] has joined #debian
10:00<themill>ircipimp: building in a debian chroot should be fine
10:00<jordanm[titan]>ircipimp: no, packages should be built against the systems that they will be running on. You don't want to mix versions of your toolchain
10:01<ircipimp>so if i build some local package which depends on apache2, i can't test it with piuparts, as piuparts will only test packages without dependencies?
10:01<jordanm[titan]>but I recall pbuilder allows a release to be specified, but I have no idea if the ubuntu version allows you to specify a debian release
10:02-!-silice- [] has joined #debian
10:02<ircipimp>yes, i can tell it to use sid and the debian mirrors

11:59<iiv>Hello all. How do I use debian iso image on the flash drive when I have booted system via PXE. The problem is that debian installer if it loaded by PXELINUX has no menu item to choose installation image, it only allow me to use network repo. but I can't without PPPoE client module.
11:59<iiv>So is there a way either to make installer to use iso image on the flash or at least load PPPoE module to setup Internet connection.
12:00-!-chl [~jackson5@] has joined #debian
12:00<dpkg>For Debian Lenny installers with up-to-date kernels, see . The <bnx2> and <bnx2x> firmware files for Linux 2.6.32 are included in 0116 images.
12:00<chl>is there any way to download rstp file from linux?
12:00<jordanm[titan]>iiv: I recall some of the kmuto installers above to have additional networking support. I would check for PPPoE
12:00<chl>long time ago it seems mencode (?) can do that.
12:01<jordanm[titan]>but I seem to recall the standard installer do it
12:01<chl>but i search using aptitude and online google. seems there is no mencode
12:01<iiv>Files for TFTPD directory were taken from this archive: , iso image is debian-504-i386-netinst.iso
12:02<themill>chl: I believe mplayer can do that; mencoder is debian-multimedia if you want to look there, /msg dpkg dmm

12:08<iiv>jordanm[titan]: When I boot USB flash installer it scans for iso on all drives but netboot (pxe) version doesn't
12:08<themill>chl: I think I've only ever used it with a .ra file not a .ram (normally, wget http://..../foo.ram and extract the contents of that first then give it to mplayer.
12:08<themill>chl: I also have mplayer from dmm rather than debian, so that can make a difference
12:09<chl>i check the format of ram. looks like they are different.
12:09<chl>look like i have to find an alternative way to get it. thanks for help. : )

12:10<tom1>hi everyone :)
12:11<tom1>Whats the difference between a Debian Blend and a CDD?
12:12<themill>tom1: new name and old name for the same thing
12:12<dpkg>[cdd] Debian Pure Blend (aka Blend, formerly Custom Debian Distribution) is a subset of Debian configured to support a particular target group out-of-the-box. Not to be confused with distributions <based on Debian>. #debian-custom on
12:12<tom1>themil,dpkg: thanks
12:13<tom1>so Ubuntu would be a distributions whereas Debian-Edu is a Debian pure blend

12:14-!-T_X [] has joined #debian
12:14<tom1>if i were to try and pack in all the stuff i regularly use (say eclipse,Urbanterror(FPS) etc) into a DVD with a custom theme...that would mean iam making a blend
12:15<bja>there is a way to look at all the packcages installed on a system?
12:15<chl>that means you make an tom1-distribution : p
12:16<tom1>bja: that would be dpkg -l
12:16-!-dutchfish [~wil@] has joined #debian
12:16<tom1>sorry if this sounds dumb but what makes a distribution different from a blend? a separate repository? or maybe some custom applications ( like ubuntu's got ubiquity and a whole lot of other stuff)
12:17<bja>tom1: thx
12:17<chl>tom1: i am just kidding. don't take it too serious : p
12:17<gsimmons>iiv: Provided you can access a Debian mirror over the network, you can load the iso-scan installer component, in order to access and use a local installer ISO image. The ppp-udeb component can also be requested during this time.
12:17<tom1>bja: np, if you have GNOME you could try using synaptic(System>Administration>Synaptic)
12:18<jordanm[titan]>tom1: based on debian distro add their own software, modify existing pacakges, etc
12:18<chl>make your own distribution is cool. at least from my viewpoint.

12:25<jordanm[titan]>mansi: so you basically want rsync to a differential backup instead of incremental?
12:26<mansi>actually i donno difference between two..anyway i want only changed files in the backup directory
12:26<mansi>unchanged files should not be backed
12:26-!-nathan [] has joined #debian
12:26<gsimmons>iiv: Note that with use of the netboot installation method, you are required to download installer components. This requires network access to a local/remote Debian mirror.

12:31<mansi>I mean, every weeken, one directory should cintain all files...but all other days, there will be directory with files whic were changed last day
12:31<jordanm[titan]>mansi: I don't understand why the fresh backup must include changes only... full backup -> hard link full backup to new dir -> backup again. You will then have two days of backups and it will only use up disk space in the size of the initial backup + changes
12:31<mansi>just need to take note of, which all fiels are modified each day

12:33<gsimmons>iiv: I'm wondering why you're using the netboot method in the first place, when the netinst or hd-media methods are likely more appropriate. They have your desired d-i components within.
12:34<chl>generally what is the best practice to do backup data? using e.g tar zcvf /path/to/backup/dir.tar.gz /src/folder ? for any tool is recommended?
12:34<jordanm[titan]>bja: let me see if I can find it
12:35<themill>chl: rsnapshot is my personal favourite

15:08<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>;

15:55<AlabamaHit>Hi, I'm can't seem to get a vidoe driver installed. I'm running 5.04. I used the small install. (Nest or something like that lol).. Now I can't get my vidoe right.
15:55<dpkg>X.Org X11, the reference implementation of the X Window System, forked from XFree86 4.4RC2. The current release is X11R7.5. To install, ask me about <install x>. Ask me about <drxx> to reconfigure. To remove, ask about <remove x>. #xorg on

15:56<sney>AlabamaHit: did you chose the desktop environment task when you installed?
15:56<AlabamaHit>sney: I'm running gnome.
15:56<sney>ok. see adb, this is why we ask first, shoot bots later ^^
15:56<sney>AlabamaHit: what video card do you have?
15:57<AlabamaHit>sney: Nvidia GTS 250
15:57<AlabamaHit>I tried to install the driver from the nvidia site but just keep getting different errrors after each other.
15:57<sney>yes, the nvidia installer doesn't work very well on debian. we have a different way of doing it.
15:58<sney> explains it pretty well, if you have any questions or aren't sure about something ask away

16:02<AlabamaHit>Upgrade? I thought that 5.04 was the latest :)
16:03<AlabamaHit>I don't mind upgrading.

16:04<sney>Debian 5 is the latest stable. Debian comes in 3 flavors: stable, testing, and unstable. testing is generally fine for normal usage, there are some bugs but it's more stable than a lot of other peoples' full releases
16:05<AlabamaHit>Cool, I don't mind upgrading.
16:05<sney>do this /msg dpkg lenny->squeeze
16:05<sney>those are the instructions, if you're not sure about anything ask away
16:06<AlabamaHit>So, i'm moving from leeny to squeeze
16:06<geoff_>hey im new to linux, i was wondering, is jolicloud based off of debian?
16:06<sney>geoff_: no idea, but even if it is it's not supported here
16:06-!-mercutio22 [] has joined #debian
16:06<geoff_>oh ok
16:07<AlabamaHit>sney: Ok, kinda a stupid question but it says this " Remove any APT source specific to stable" does that mean to uncheck the stables in the "Software Sources".? Just want to make sure I'm understanding that right.

16:10<sney>Pitxyoki: you can also /msg dpkg

16:25<AlabamaHit>sney: will I need to reboot after it is all done Or does that matter?
16:25<Guest1909>AlabamaHit: actually the installer recognizes no cards. I have no choises
16:26<sney>AlabamaHit: you need to reboot every time you install a new kernel, otherwise no

18:10-!-danutz [~danutz@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
18:11<sney>ODDity: should work out of the box if you install squeeze/testing
18:11<sney>or rather Oak
18:12<sney>it uses the ath9k driver, which is present in squeeze by default and requires no extra firmware
18:12<Oak>sney: Should I do that then? Is it stable enough as of now?
18:12<sney>it's stable enough for daily use. I have it on my netbook.
18:12<Oak>Ok that's good
18:12<sney>there are some bugs but nothing major.
18:13<ODDity>yeah I'm running it too now
18:13<ODDity>though I can't say it's done much for my wireless card

18:42<sney>ok, don't get the drivers from, but once you install them from debian it should work fine. do /msg dpkg nvidia squeeze

18:54<AlabamaHit>when i open the file "/etc/apt/apt.conf" there is nothign there.
18:55<ODDity>it's /etc/apt/sources.list I think you want
18:55<gpm>all, totem (gstreamer) will not play any media. it opens fine, no errors, but it never actually starts to play the file, it is set to play (not pause) and just sits there. how can i make it start playing, or at least figure out what the problem is?
18:55<sney>AlabamaHit: do your lines in sources.list say squeeze or testing?
18:55<wing>anyone - i run pbuilder --login (as root), it takes me into the shell and then i try pbuilder build <whatever> and it returns "-bash: command not found" and im logged in as root..any suggests?
18:55<AlabamaHit>sney, let me look...cuase it said that file not the sources lol
18:56<sney>AlabamaHit: I know, but they're related, bear with me
18:56<sney>ok, then apt.conf should say APT::Default-Release "squeeze";

23:07<BruceSato>thank you
23:07<dr|z3d>BruceSato: Does your client not indicate the topic?
23:07<dr|z3d>If it did, you would see that German doesn't feature :)

23:07<BruceSato>english only isnt mentioned, too ^^
23:08-!-andycap [] has joined #debian
23:08<dr|z3d>The topic _is_ in English. It _isn't_ in German. Take a wild guess what language we speak here.. *wink*
23:08<BruceSato>ive got one question: ive got a USB-Stick which needs rt2500usb-support, and ive seen in some distros that rt2500usb isnt supported there
23:08-!-freex [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:09<dpkg>The Ralink RT2500USB chipset (RT2571) is supported by the next-generation driver (rt2500usb), included in mainline kernels since 2.6.24. It does not require firmware from userspace. . For RT2501USB/RT2571W device support, ask me about <rt73usb>.
23:09<sney>looks good to me
23:09-!-drewdavis [~drew@] has joined #debian
23:09<BruceSato>thank you for answering my question so clearly ^^
23:10<sney>no problem
23:10<adb>!win dpkg
23:10<dpkg>Congratulations, dpkg! You have won the time-life collection of vintage AOL CDs, a set of 120!
23:11<sney>now if only all this built up good karma would cause that annoying guy to leave the eee and offtopic channels.
23:13<BruceSato>im looking out for a reason to keep windows as OS, but i cant find one except that WoW runs only on windows afaik
23:14-!-Luffy-X- [~knoppix@] has joined #debian
23:14<sney>BruceSato: in my experience, WoW looks better in windows but performs better in Wine. I was getting 20 more fps in crazy places like stormwind, etc
23:15<sney>also it works perfectly
23:15<BruceSato>wine hmmm. need to drink something, good reminder ^^
23:16<BruceSato>i know what wine is, that was a joke ^^
23:16<sney>heh I figured

23:47<amitz>I have i5. Google says AMD64 is a better fit for me than i64. How much performance difference I should expect if I used i64 or i386 instead?
23:47<amitz>if that question makes sense.
23:47-!-chillance [] has joined #debian
23:47-!-chillance [] has quit []
23:47<sney>amitz: ia64 will not work at all, period.
23:48<sney>ia64 is for the intel itanium cpu, which you don't have. it's completely different.
23:49<amitz>I probably confused i64 and 686, which is a kernel choice within i386. Noted.
23:49-!-Luffy-X- [~knoppix@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
23:49<sney>the only real noticeable difference between i686 and amd64 comes into play if you have 4GB of RAM or more
23:50-!-fabrianchi [] has joined #debian
23:51<amitz>hmm yeah, I'm aware about memory addressing issue above 3.2GB (IIRC)
23:51<sney>that's it really, there may be some minor performance differences between them but nothing you'd notice in the real world.
23:52<sney>there are some iffy issues with adobe flash on amd64 but it's still usable
