02:05<jm_>yes, for 64bit too
02:05<simonrvn>!why iceweasel
02:05<dpkg>Due to Mozilla logos licensing, Mozilla software isn't DFSG-free, so Debian distributes Mozilla software with different logos. One day Mozilla Corporation decided to revoke the agreement to let Debian use Mozilla trademarks, so Debian changed to non-trademarked product names. See for more information. Ask me about <dfsg>.

04:39<babilen>zoi: I tried to differentiate between: 1. I need it because I always want the latest version and 2. I need it because my setup relies on using feature1 ... featureN from package-foo (the latter can only be met by running sid and the latter can be met by running sid and (more importantly) by trying to backport the relevant packages)

05:03<melodie>locklace, so where in Debian world can I let people know they would like to get it ?
05:03<melodie>is there a real chat room for Debian users/packagers, somewhere ?
05:03<locklace>using aptitude will help a lot, always use "aptitude safe-upgrade", and also "aptitude -s" to simulate things so you can see what they'll do before you actually do them
05:03<zoi>for example, there is pretty old awesome in backports, but compiling awesome from source requrires newer version of cmake - which is also not in backports, etc
05:03<themill>zoi: I have no idea what your requirements are but they must be pretty different to mine.... there's absolutely nothing wrong with stable+backports.
05:03<babilen>melodie: Is it packaged for Debian?
05:04<melodie>it should be imo
05:04<melodie>it's not

06:38<Aleric>I needed 21 days to learn C when I was young lol - and 3 MONTHS to learn C++. Don't tell I can learn perl in 30 minutes.

06:39<ansgar>Oh, with Perl you can just hit you head on the keyboard and it will compile. So it's very easy ;)
06:40<locklace>as i said, it was designed to be accessible to people familiar with sh, awk and friends, so you already know a lot of it
06:41<locklace>and honestly, that little intro and the 30 minutes it takes to read it will give you enough to handle probably 80% of your tasks
06:41<locklace>the reference docs are also very high quality. in fact doc quality is probably the best part about perl

08:42<babilen>abc: might give some pointers. Any reason why you are not using Debian but OVH?
08:42<locklace>so this is some hosting provider's idiosyncratically-borked version of debian
08:43<babilen>looks like it
08:43<koollman>I doubt it's really borked. more likely a custom kernel, and no grub installed, which tends to make various post-config script do strange stuff
08:44<icebrain>yeah, it seems it failed for other people using Lilo

08:44<babilen>koollman: It surely is not completely borked, but rather modified in a way that does not play well with the rest of the Debian packages.
08:44<koollman>babilen: or, some packages aren't tested with grub installation missing
08:45<abc>babilen: Because it is the one installed on their manager
08:45<koollman>which was until recently a valid debian install, I think

08:53<babilen>gernot: Do you need squeeze or just a recent kernel?
08:54<mjt>maybe lenny+bpo is a better way
08:55<babilen>.. depends on his/her needs (tried to clarify that first)
08:55<gernot>babilen, interesting question. The Laptop hasn't been purchased yet so I can't say. It's just that I observed a lot of recommendations to upgrade to squeeze when people had problems with recent hardware.
08:55<gernot>Yes, first I would try Lenny+bpo.
08:56<Kenshin>hey gernot, could upgrading to squeeze possibly help wine run any games/apps that it doesn't right now?
08:56<Kenshin>i'm on 5.0.4 lenny currently
08:56<babilen>gernot: Hardware support is generally handled by the kernel. You might want to try recent kernels. You can install them from backports (/msg dpkg bpo) after you've installed the base system. If you need a new kernel during the install you can use a stable image from kmuto which comes with a recent kernel. (/msg dpkg kmuto)

09:01<babilen>gernot: Your assumptions are mostly correct
09:01<babilen>gernot: It will tell you what kernel version you need for the (PCI) hardware. If it is a very new kernel, you most likely need a recent kernel anyway and you most likely have to use the kmuto images anyway

09:02<gernot>Thanks, babilen. It would be nice if I could go with Lenny. We'll see.

09:02<Kenshin>guess all i can do is wait for an update of wine
09:03<Kenshin>no biggy though, i got plenty of games that do work ;)

09:13<babilen>Metrahla: Hmm, I am not sure about the file manager in XFCE, but nautilus supports connecting to servers which have SSH enabled. For that to work you would basically install an SSH server on the remote host, configure key based authentication and use nautilus "Connect to Server ..." functionality ...

09:15<babilen>Metrahla: I would assume that the XFCE file manager supports that as well. If you have to transfer files frequently and you only want to do so on your local LAN I would rather suggest something like NFS ... You could also use SAMBA or FTP or ....
09:15<Torsten_W>Metrahla, the filemanager in xfce is thunar and is not able to overlay virtual fs'
09:15<babilen>Torsten_W: Thanks for clarifying that

09:21<babilen>Metrahla: The easiest way is to setup ssh - That gives you the possibility to log into the remote host and transfer files with scp/sftp. A couple of filemanagers (nautilus,dolphin,...) can "mount" directories on SSH accessible volumes and provide easy drag+drop access to them.

09:27<dr|z3d>Depends, Kjetil. It sometimes works, sometimes doesn't.
09:28<dr|z3d>There's a bug related to screenres that doesn't help, either.

09:28<Kjetil>Annoyingly enough it manages to go into proper fullscreen mode if I set the gnomepanels to autohide
09:28<dr|z3d>Obviously you'll need to install vbox additions. Even then, it doesn't always work as expected.

10:26<themill>!dvd playback
10:26<dpkg>To play DVDs, you need some media playing software (ask me about <dvd> for some suggestions on viewers). You will also need the libdvdcss2 libdvdnav4 libdvdread3 packages installed, some of which are in <> (see <libdvdcss>).

11:57<Kjetil>not if it's running without dma-support
11:57<[Jasper]>dr|z3d does the installer run a FULL format?
11:57<Kenshin>other than that, i'm still not understanding why devil may cry 4 will start up, go full screen, load the advertisements pre-intro video then crash when it's time for the intro vid to start
11:57<dr|z3d>[Jasper]: It's an option, sure..
11:58<Kenshin>one would think that if it was able to load that much then it should start the game ok
11:58<[Jasper]>but is it the default dr|z3d ?
11:58<Kenshin>or atleast get to the start screen since it's already displaying and loading the advertisement things
11:59<dr|z3d>[Jasper]: If you're creating a new partition, then, yes, I think by default it does a full format.
11:59<[Jasper]>no way to see progress right?

16:38<PresClinton>I will research everything else including my sound/video and all my other issues but I need wifi to work in order not to get fired.

17:06<vamitrou>hi people i need some help from you
17:06<graytron>how may i be of assistance?
17:06<ohwow>Hello, on the wiki I read about alsaconf and it says that I have to install alsa-utils for that
17:06<ohwow>i did, but i still have no alsaconf
17:07<dpkg>alsaconf is a formerly included <ALSA> configuration tool to detect sound cards. Removed from the alsa-utils package at 1.0.17-1: "The only valid use-case for alsaconf is aiding the configuration of ISA sound cards." Ask me about <install alsa> and <alsa checklist>. See also
17:07<ohwow>o sorry
17:07<ohwow>never mind
17:07<vamitrou>a have a board with an ARM processor and there is a NFC rfid reader connected to it. Sometimes it stucks. Is there a way to restart the usb daemon? i am running debian linux. Any help is appreciated
17:07<ohwow>!install alsa
17:07<dpkg>"aptitude install alsa-base alsa-utils". After it's installed, run alsamixer and unmute the volume levels. Some applications don't know how to talk directly to ALSA, see <devdsp>. You may also need to install libesd-alsa0 if you're using ESD-based applications. Some ALSA drivers require firmware from userspace, ask me about <alsa firmware>.
17:07<vamitrou>i search on the internet but i didn't find any working solution
17:07<dpkg>[devdsp] if you are using <ALSA> and you get an error about /dev/dsp missing, you need to provide the OSS compatibility layer. Run "modprobe snd-pcm-oss" and add snd-pcm-oss to /etc/modules . A proposed release goal is for packaged applications to stop using /dev/dsp:

17:51<jhutchins_lt>PresClinton: So, I haven't been following the whole saga, but what are you after?
17:52<jhutchins_lt>PresClinton: It looks like you want a dual-boot system with vista and debian.
17:53<jhutchins_lt>PresClinton: You delete all partitions (easiest to do with a live/rescue CD), install Vista to the unpartitioned drive, use something like gparted to create a partition for debian (iirc the installer can actually do that), and install debian.
17:53<jhutchins_lt>PresClinton: Wifi drivers are pretty easy to deal with these days, but as most of the manufacturers don't provide linux drivers or information on the hardware for regulatory (FCC) reasons, it can be tricky.
17:54<PresClinton>where do I get a live rescue CD?
17:54<jhutchins_lt>PresClinton: Vista sucks. Vista wants to make it hard for you to run anythning not approved by microsoft. This is not Debian's fault.
17:54<PresClinton>do you think debian will even allow me to burn anything without hours of setting up drivers for my burner?
17:54<PresClinton>I understand its not debians fault
17:55<jhutchins_lt>PresClinton: No guarantees, but I haven't seen a problem with CD burning in ages. You can sometimes even do it from a live CD.
17:55<bja>PresClinton: if your machine does not have drm it will not pose a problem
17:55<Duber>PresClinton maybe that error of not finding drive letter might be because you installed linux onto the hdd without create any partition at all ?

17:58<PresClinton>so I have to reinstall debian, create a partition while installing for vista??
17:58<PresClinton>I have no choice, I wanted to get away from it but I cannot get wifi to work so debian is not an option for me

18:00<jhutchins_lt>PresClinton: So delete the partitions.
18:00<Duber>from linux installer if windows one doesn't let you

18:01<PresClinton>when I try to reinstall debian with no partitions it still created one for swap or something

18:02<themill>the windows installer will do that without asking
18:03<Duber>in fact the problem will be to get grub back after installing windows
18:03<jhutchins_lt>themill: As I understand it, his copy of Vista doesn't like the partitioned drive, so he needs to delete the Debian partitions.
18:03<PresClinton>when I try to install windows VISTA it wont allow it to be installed because of the partition
18:03<PresClinton>if you guys just google the vista issue with linux you will understand what im saying and find it to be true

18:03<PresClinton>how do I delete the partitions??
18:03<bja>PresClinton: Lets begin by asnwering two question do you have phisical access to the machine? Do you have a way of running a live CD?
18:04<Duber>from a livecd you can do it PresClinton

21:45<boboysdadda>does restart xserver just mean logout?
21:45<dkr>edbian: oh, like clicking links in your mail client
21:46<edbian>dkr, Yeah. Like this:
21:46<edbian>dkr, If I click on it nothing happens.
21:46<dkr>edbian: the gnome setting obviously just affects the gnome apps that use it, for xchat, and several others, oyu have to configure it in the settings for that app sepcifically
21:46<edbian>dkr, If I right click and open in browser it opens swift-fox but just goes to the home page (it ignores the link)
21:46<abrotman>Xenguy: roughly the same kernel is already in
21:47<Xenguy>abrotman: I see, OK
21:47<edbian>dkr, That's annoying. Why don't i have to do that with firefox or opera?
21:47<Xenguy>abrotman: One more question...

21:48<edbian>dkr, Opera just worked. Maybe that was part of the package or something?
21:48<Xenguy>abrotman: If I have a 'wired' card and also a 'wireless' card in this laptop, what would the typical interface names be? For example the 'wired' interface is pretty clearly 'eth0', but what should the 'wireless' interface be designated?
21:49<dkr>edbian: I meant I thougth you had to configure it in some apps preferences spearately from gnome prefs
21:49<abrotman>Xenguy: the wired is usually eth# .. the wifi device depends on the driver
21:49<Xenguy>abrotman: is there a way to determine the latter based on the driver?
21:49-!-brendan [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:49<edbian>dkr, I don't have to with firefox. I know that for sure. Is that maybe just what developers assume you're using?
