01:12<sean>try synaptic pakage manager
01:12<Web-sidux632>hey sean ?
01:12<bja>dpkg -l
01:12<dpkg>bja: I give up, what is it?
01:12<Web-sidux632>with apt
01:12<craigevil>Web-sidux632: apt-cache policy foo
01:12<Web-sidux632>and for all ?
01:13<bja>sean: There is no better or worst distro. in the end it all ads to the way you got your work done and how fast you managed to do it.
01:13<bja>Web-sidux632: dpkg -l

01:13<Web-sidux632>i will do
01:13<sean>is debian more secure than ubuntu
01:14<bja>sean: Where are you trying to go?
01:14<Web-sidux632>and i/ve done already but is so much info's ........ :)
01:14<bja>Web-sidux632: redirect to a file for further analysis
01:15<sean>can debian be hack
01:15<sean>easier than ubuntu
01:15<bja>sean: meanning?

01:15<Web-sidux632>thanks for the idea bja
01:15<bja>np good luck
01:16<craigevil>!tell sean about why debian
01:17<Web-sidux632>i'm a newbie to debian and a least for me debian is so interesting
01:19-!-cahoot [~radix@] has joined #debian
01:20<sean>sry guys but ubuntu owns
01:21<bja>sean: if you say so. It is obvious that your needs are different than ours.
01:21<sean>what do you use it for anyway
01:21<bja>Obviously things you don't
01:22<Web-sidux632>a few years ago if debian didn't existed ................ won't exist ubuntu
01:22<sean>can you give an example
01:23<Web-sidux632>ubuntu hasn't developed the initial debian tools
01:23<bja>tor, the developers asked the ubuntu guys to drop them since they couldn't keep up with maintenance. The debian package has become the norm there
01:23<Web-sidux632>and ubuntu use them
01:24<bja>and there are a lot of extra examples. If you only walk the beaten path then ubuntu is for you. if you don't and you are not proficient in compiling from souce your own packages, then yo have to make a compromise
01:26<Web-sidux632>does anybody knows if exists an util-linux bug in sid that prevents e2fsprogs installing in chroot?
01:26-!-nosbig [] has joined #debian
01:26<bja>!broken in sid
01:26<dpkg>Well, duh, what'd you expect, of course it's broken. See <sid>.
01:27<bja>!btssmite Web-sidux632
01:27*dpkg beats Web-sidux632 around the head repeatedly with and apt-listbugs, along with a chainsaw if Web-sidux632 is running testing or unstable

02:58<Guest1171>Hey people my question is not debian specific but maybe smb would be willing to help. it is about connecting to Internet. My provider is using IP4 protocol (no dhcp) that is to connect I must know the IP address, default gateway, etc and to configure my eth connection manually. However I observe that under XP there is no need to enter these numbers and even no need to know them! I have just chosen "attribute IP address automatically etc" ac
02:58<Guest1171>tually this was the only way for me to get these numbers. Now i connect to internet through debian everything is fine. HOWEVER: is there a program under debian which can determine automatically the IP etc? (this is about the local networks LAN) it is a pity to have to use XP each time when I hve a new provider! -- thanks
03:05<cahoot>your description doesn't make much sense (to me anyway)
03:06-!-gnugr [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:06<cahoot>or rather: I can't make much sense of your description
03:06-!-gnugr [] has joined #debian
03:07-!-Efreak is now known as SleepingBeauty
03:07<Guest1171>cahoot thanks for the information. both your phrases are very clear and make much sense for me.
03:09-!-cmot [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:12<cahoot>Guest1171: you get a fixed IP from your ISP and XP can in some mysterious way figure out that IP without dhcp involved?
03:13-!-blocktree [] has joined #debian
03:14<Guest1171>cahoot : i don not know how XP does it - anyway I tried DHCP under debian first ad it did not work
03:15-!-craigevil [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
03:15<Guest1171>i just know that in the instructions of my provider I should have chosen "automatic attribution of IP address"
03:15<Guest1171>I did it
03:16<Guest1171>then the connection established and I got the IP address
03:16<Guest1171>now I am connected from my linux machine using these numbers

06:42<Lantizia>Hey... rather than using sed/awk/echo/etc to change settings in conf files... is there a CLI utility meant for non-destructive editing of config files?
06:42-!-dante_2core [] has joined #debian
06:42<Lantizia>i.e. something that can detect when something is already set in the file and tweak the value, or detect if something is commented out
06:43<locklace>Lantizia: the problem is - and this is one of the most brain-dead things about unix - every config file has a different format
06:43<Lantizia>locklace, exactly... so this utility would have to be able to detect which format
06:44<locklace>i've never seen such a thing, and it would be a huge pain to write, since all the work would be in maintaining a big database of different formats and options
06:45<locklace>the unix way is to make them text files and rely on the user to understand and edit them
06:45<locklace>and in common cases where that leads to problems (/etc/passwd is the classic example) make a special-case tool
06:45<Lantizia>In my little howto I'm writing... I can either assume they've got the package managers default conf files and give them a bunch of sed and echo commands to run
06:46<Lantizia>or show them how the entire file should loo
06:46<Lantizia>what I'd like to do is have a program to intelligently detect existing settings and change them to the ones required
06:47-!-alephnull [~alok@] has joined #debian
06:47<locklace>from a doc perspective, the right thing is to provide the correct file as an example, and chop it into sections if you need to explain in more detail
06:48<Lantizia>this is from a speed perspective... I like my howtos to be unscary then let them know the scary bits they just did afterwards
06:48<locklace>you may find or easily write such a program if you're only concerned with one file format, but it's next to impossible to do in general
06:48-!-jcwu [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
06:49<Lantizia>I don't think it'd be that impossible to scan a file and detect if any lines begin # ' ; or <!-- for comments... or detect if there is SET hello SET=hello SET = hello
06:50<Lantizia>i.e. learn from what is already available to guess a format
06:50<locklace>look at the format differences between /etc files like passwd, fstab, aliases, and resolv.conf
06:51<ansgar>Lantizia: There is actually a Google Summer of Code Project in Debian that is related:
06:52<ansgar>Lantizia: It deals with trying to ease package upgrades by giving more information about the configuration files.
06:52<Lantizia>I can't believe there isn't something like this already

09:02<mysticsilent>hi, how can i upgrade my kernel to the newest one? current version is : 2.6.34-rc6-lldesktop-amd64
09:02<abrotman>mysticsilent: ask #ubuntu on .. that is not a Debian kernel
09:03<mysticsilent>not a debian kernel?
09:03<abrotman>mysticsilent: this is #debian, that kernel you're using is not from Debian
09:03<mysticsilent>youre kidding me? my dad installed this notebook for me.. and im sure this is debian running : debian squeeze
09:04<abrotman>mysticsilent: squeeze's kernel would be 2.6.32-3-amd64
09:04<abrotman>mysticsilent: what is 'dpkg -l libc6' ?
09:04<mysticsilent>do i need to insert that in console?
09:05<mysticsilent>he said to me that was the newest kernel
09:06<mysticsilent>because it installed with a trunk kernel after installation
09:06<abrotman>mysticsilent: no idea why your dad installed an ubuntu kernel, but if you want a newer kernel than what you have, you'll have to compile it yourself .. if you were smart you'd install the squeeze kernel instead of the unsupported ubuntu kernel you currently have
09:06<mysticsilent>how can i compile the kernel myself?
09:06<abrotman>why do you need a newer kernel at all?
09:07<abrotman>if you have no particular reason, you'll be smarter to install the 2.6.32-3-amd64 currently in squeeze
09:07<mysticsilent>my sound is not working great.. hardware keys of notebook to mute of raise lower volume hangs te soundcard
09:07<mysticsilent>and video gives stripes at the right side of the screen

09:08<mysticsilent>ive got a fujitsu siemens amilo pi2530
09:08<mysticsilent>with a radeon mobility hd2300
09:08<dpkg>[make-kpkg] the tool that you use for compiling the kernel the Debian Way (tm). It makes a package for your custom kernel which you can install and remove easily using dpkg. See , man make-kpkg and ask me about <kernel compile> <kp mantra> <kernel build-deps>.
09:09<mysticsilent>is there any step by step guide to do this?
09:09<mysticsilent>because i want to learn

10:50<bremner>Lantizia: man sysctl.conf for information about persistence. As to whether it is a good idea, I never heard of anyone doing it, for what it is worth.
10:50<uldics>Hi all. Can anyone help me changing my system language to english (en_GB), but so I can write in my language (lv_LV). dpkg-reconfigure locales does not help. It makes all settings the same. And I dont want all my programs half translated to some weird latvian terms.
10:50<Lantizia>bremner, I'm thinking it's better to have the domain set correctly at the kernel... so services using gethostname() can get the proper FQDN without me having to specifiy it?
10:51<Ikarus>uldics: your writing language is purely dependent on keyboard settings on modern systems
10:51<Ikarus>just be sure to use en_GB.utf8
10:54<Lantizia>in fact! why the hell does Debian ask for a domain during setup... then doesn't actually go and set it
10:54<Lantizia>I mean sure it sets it in hosts... but not kernel.domainname
10:55<Lantizia>thats just silly
10:55<locklace>Lantizia: bad idea
10:55<locklace>Lantizia: like i said, dns and the kernel nodename are separate things
10:56<Ikarus>kernel.domainname doesn't quite do what you think
10:56<Ikarus>kernel.domainname IS NOT DNS domain which is what Debian is asking you for
10:56<Lantizia>I know it determines the output of gethostname() which is meant to be the FQDN of the server
10:57<Ikarus>Lantizia: nope and nope
10:57<Lantizia>yes and yes
10:57<Lantizia>go try it and see :)
10:58<Ikarus>Lantizia: it determines the output of gethostname very indirectly, but far more importantly, nowhere does it say that gethostname has to be a FQDN
10:58<Lantizia>postfix expects gethostname() to return the FQDN
10:58<locklace>you are either not reading the manpages for hostname(1), gethostname(2) and uname(2), or not understanding them
10:58<locklace>and similarly you are either not reading or understanding what you're being told here
10:59<Ikarus>getdomainname() far more fun it is even explicitly the NIS domainname it returns
10:59<Lantizia>so you're telling me that gethostname() returns just... server
10:59-!-AbsintheSyringe [~havoc@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:59<locklace>yeah, we can thank sun for muddying these waters even more
10:59<Lantizia>and postfix is seeing this and adding the .localdomain on the end
10:59<Ikarus>Lantizia: yup, just the plain hostname
10:59<Lantizia>postfix's myhostname is read from gethostname()... and postfixes mydomain is myhostname without the first component
11:00<Lantizia>but if your saying gethostname() is meant to only be the hostname (not the fqdn) then is postfix in error?
11:00<Ikarus>Lantizia: correct
11:00<Ikarus>Lantizia: so just specify an explicit hostname in postfix
11:00<Lantizia>Ikarus, see I wanted to avoid that
11:01<locklace>it should be using getaddrinfo(3)
11:01<Lantizia>ok so what exactly is kernel.domainname meant to be used for then?
11:01<Ikarus>Lantizia: NIS
11:01<Lantizia>which is?
11:01<Ikarus>Lantizia: a Sun directory protocol
11:02<Lantizia>well setting kernel.domainname definately changes the output of gethostname()
11:02<Ikarus>Lantizia: that is because GNU doesn't quite implement it right
11:02<Ikarus>it parses the output of uname to get it
11:03<Ikarus>Lantizia: anyway, getaddrinfo is the right way to get the FQDN of a box/interface
11:03<Lantizia>actually I think I lied there
11:03<Lantizia>setting it doesn't change the output of gethostname() now :S
11:04<Lantizia>I could have sworn it did
11:04<Lantizia>so in review...

11:08<Ikarus>it just works
11:08<uldics>Thank you Ikarus , en_GB.utf8 helped. Now I have normal, english interface and can write with all 34 latvian letters. Dont know why, but en_GB before did not let me write in my language.
11:08<Ikarus>uldics: en_GB uses the ISO-8859 characterset
11:09<Ikarus>en_GB.utf8 uses Unicode instead
11:09<Ikarus>uldics: and I guessed Latvian had something in common with cyrillic so wouldn't be using the latin alphabet
11:09<uldics>So its like Windows XP in a way, if I use without utf8, hehe

11:16<Ikarus>uldics: just fire up "su username startx " from a startup script ?
11:16<Ikarus>ie, skip the entire mess of a dm
11:17<uldics>isnt it required for xfce4?

11:18<Ikarus>uldics: startx works fine as a X session starter
11:18<bremner>you might need to adjust the contents of .xsession or .xinitrc
11:19<uldics>isnt it the dm, which saves my settings
11:19<Ikarus>uldics: nooo, the DM just launches the session
11:19<Ikarus>it logs you in, then launches the session as your user
11:19<uldics>so all the session info is stored somehow else
11:19<Ikarus>uldics: well, what to launch in the session is handled by .xsession in the case of startx

12:11<dpkg>methinks downgrade is not possible with apt-get currently. No future support is anticipated. Some programs change the binary format of their files in a way that cannot be rolled back later, and package maintainer scripts provide ways to upgrade to new config file formats but not ways to downgrade.

13:32<Flashtek>abrotman: do you know what wvdial does different to ppp+chat ?
13:32<abrotman>nope, i've always just used pppconfig to setup ppp
13:33<Flashtek>abrotman: used it on a3g dongle ?
13:33<abrotman>uhm .. no
13:33<abrotman>a dialup modem .. you know .. i'm that old :)
13:34<Flashtek>yeah, I was using pppd and chat before pppconfig was thought up.. ;-)
13:34<abrotman>well, pppconfig has been around for 12 years at least? .. i think
13:34<abrotman>but i've never used wvdial because pppconfig always worked well for me (as long as the hardware cooperated)

17:54<Falco>hi guys. simple? question. I have a mysql server on my debian and its taking my C# code 5.02secs to connect to it each and every time which is annoying when debugging since my code needs 3 connections (15sec) so anyways i would like to check debians firewall settings. How can i do it? or outright disable it?
