01:59<WapiFlapi>I just installed debian lenny on a power pc , "everything works fine" almost :) , havent get x-window to work yet but thats a proble for later, for the moment i have some keyboard issues, no digits, i think maybe loading another keymap could solve the problem, but .. there are digits int the keymap's name . what can i do ?

02:36<opticon>I recently used umount /boot when i was following some guides covering partimage will that cause any problems when i reboot my debian box?

02:54<opticon>what can i use thats free to create image backups on debian partimage would have been almost ideal except it requires the partition to be unmounted so its not a feasible solution for me
02:55<chaos>i don't think you can create an image from an in-use partition

03:45<chaos>but i want to compile the new kernel with up-to-date everything else

04:53<debiann00b>oh, I'm sorry. No the initial debian login screen.
04:54<debiann00b>if I click on sessions or when I type in my username, it is in huge text making it distorted so it runs off the screen.
04:54<debiann00b>like 5 lines of text will take up the entire height of the screen.
04:54<debiann00b>I didn't know if there is a setting to adjust that.

05:00<debiann00b>Okay, a different question; I just did aptitude install xfce, how do I get it to load? Or how do I know which desktop environment is currently loaded?
05:01<debiann00b>mvark, thanks, I'll look in there. I'm not sure what I am using... I'm new to linux and trying to figure out all the options.

05:04<mvark>Choose session at startup (F4 ?) and replace by xfce
05:05<debiann00b>That's what I figured. I can not read the text on the menu that opens when I select session. Guess I'll try something else.

06:06<WapiFlapi>there is "nothing" into it, no resolutions or anything like that
06:07<slush>that's normal these days
06:08<WapiFlapi>ok, but if its normal how come that after boot a only get a black screen ? (I have to ctrl+alt+F to get a comandline and log in )
06:09-!-Recku [~Radoslav@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
06:09<troubled>tried something like xdebconfigurator yet, or dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg?
06:09<WapiFlapi>nd option yes.
06:09<WapiFlapi>but it only ask about keyboard stuff, and changes nothing to xorg.conf
06:09<WapiFlapi>2nd option sory
06:09<troubled>maybe try -plow?
06:10<slush>WapiFlapi: check the logfile why it goes black
06:10<WapiFlapi>i did , and he says somethin like XXX isnt specified (he says that for several XXXss )
06:10<tirwacaf>xorg.conf have nothing with squeeze and sid
06:10<slush>WapiFlapi: please pastebin the logfile
06:11<dpkg>Do not paste more than 2 lines to this channel. Instead, use: or for pics. Use for large files (think tar.gz) up to 100MB. Remember to tell us the URL of your paste! Cannot cut and paste? Ask me about <pastebinit>, <>.
06:11<WapiFlapi>how do I do that ? (since i am in comand line .. dont know how to copy paste :/ )

07:17<chaos-irssi>new kernel is working ... but with new udev my whole /dev is messed up .. how do i unlock my encrypted disks now?
07:17<troubled>cryptsetup luksOpen
07:18<chaos-irssi>yes .. so far so good .. but what happened to my device names? :) it's an LVM
07:18<troubled>probably want to figure out why /dev wasnt mounted with devfs first though
07:18<troubled>not sure, depends how you were calling them i guess. try a pvscan/vgscan yet?
07:20-!-Orestis_21 [~Jmor@] has joined #debian
07:20<troubled>well, looks like it sees them at least :)
07:21<troubled>im guessing that your base OS boots up mostly fine, but your lvm fs's just aren't auto mounting?
07:22-!-jcwu [] has joined #debian
07:22<chaos-irssi>it's all fine .. i just got mixed up, sorry :)
07:22<troubled>might be worth checking your fstab to see what device names it used. if devfs disappeared, it might be using names that dont exist yet
07:22<troubled>ah k

07:24-!-Orestis_21 [~Jmor@] has quit []
07:25<chaos-irssi>troubled: to start from the beginning ... i only made the new kernel cos udev was bitching about sysfs being in my kernel during package update ... so i made a new kernel, then rebooted and first off i installed udev
07:26<chaos-irssi>so everything is mounted even though fstab has the /dev/hda2 device set as root and there's no such thing right now in my /dev/ folder
07:26<troubled>chaos-irssi: do you see a udev entry in `mount` for /dev still?
07:26<chaos-irssi>question is ... is it going to come back if i reboot now?
07:26<chaos-irssi>troubled: no
07:27<troubled>well, you could always try /dev/MAKEDEV to get some static files created in the event you messed up devfs
07:27<chaos-irssi>udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
07:27<troubled>hmm, looks like. and you say its empty?
07:27<chaos-irssi> /dev is filled with lotsa stuff just no /dev/hd*
07:28<troubled>oh. i think its all /dev/sd* now
07:28<chaos-irssi>riight .. bunch of sd*
07:28<chaos-irssi>how do i connect my old hd* with these sd* ?:P
07:28-!-tirwacaf [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
07:28<troubled>did you switch from an old etch kernel to lenny or something recently?
07:29<chaos-irssi>i had 2.6.something b4
07:29<troubled>chances are its a 1:1 switch, like /dev/hda would become /dev/sda
07:29<chaos-irssi>2.6.26 or 2.6.30 to 2.6.34
07:29<troubled>in recent kernels though, they moved everything over to scsi block devices iirc though. just try tweak your fstab and grub entries accordingly
07:30<troubled>maybe they finally disabled it in .34, not sure since I only use stock stable systems, sorry
07:30<chaos-irssi>great . and if i guess incorrectly i'll come home to a mess after then next powerout :s
07:30<troubled>just dont leave the system alone until you fix it then :)
07:31<troubled>grub is cake to edit the boot menus and test some boots though. worst case you can mount the fs's by hand and figure things out. try an `fdisk -l` or something to get a list and make sur eyou have the right device names though i guess

07:32-!-manphiz [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
07:32<troubled>possibly, who knows. a safer option is to e2label your filesystems and use those (or UUID's) in your fstabs, then you dont have to worry
07:33<troubled>like a kernel param of something like "root=LABEL=rootfs" or something like that
07:33<troubled>one of these guys could probably help you out better though. i try not to get too exotic with my installs or play with udev
07:34<chaos-irssi>i didn't want to play with it either .. was working just fine but it was messing with my apt-get upgrade!
07:34<chaos-irssi>had to put it in its place

10:19<dpkg>i guess java is a cross-platform C++-like OO language. Sun, now Oracle, has released most of its Java implementation under the GPL as <openjdk>. There are other implementations packaged for Debian, Sun's JRE/JDK is in <non-free> (for i386, amd64 only). Ask me about <install java>. See also <java alternatives>, <icedtea>. Squeeze users: ask me about <java ipv6>. ##java on
10:19<witte>!install java
10:19<dpkg>For the Java web browser plugin, install either the free icedtea-gcjwebplugin (Lenny) or icedtea6-plugin (Squeeze) package, or the <non-free> sun-java6-plugin package. For other Java programs, you can install the default-jre package to get a Java runtime; use "apt-cache search java-virtual-machine" to see other implementations. The best options are probably openjdk-6-jre or sun-java6-jre (non-free). See also <java alternatives>.

11:01<pascal>Could someone give me a hint where to find flie menu.lst? It's not in /boot/grub. I also could not locate it. Thanks
11:01<usuario>yeah i have no idea mate.
11:02-!-usuario [~usuario@] has quit []
11:03<cahoot>pascal: might be grub.conf if it's grub2
11:03<pascal>Thanks for the hint, I'll have a look!
11:04<cahoot>pascal: ...but you probably don't want to edit that
11:04<pascal>There is a file grub.cfg
11:05<cahoot>that's correct
11:06<pascal>The point is that the installer gave me Kernel 2.6.32-trunk.386 & 2.6.32-5. I want to use the second one, as I cannot install Linux-Header for the trunk version. Also didn't quite understand what the trunk-version actually is.

11:06<pascal>During boot the trunk version always comes on top.

11:07<bremner>delete the trunk version?
11:07<cahoot>boot the the one you want aptitude purge the other once you know you have a working system
11:07-!-Bravewolf [] has joined #debian
11:07<gredin>I got rid of the trunk version without problem
11:07<dpkg>[trunk] a term from version control systems such as <cvs>, <svn> and <git>. The "trunk" can often be thought of as a developer's playground, the stability (or otherwise) of the code varies from project to project. . Debian 2.6.32-trunk-* kernel image/headers packages are obsolete and were removed from the archive ; /msg judd kernel --release squeeze ; see Debian bug #568160 and <kernel abi>.
11:07-!-foolano [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:09<pascal>I will google how to delete the trunk version. I'm a relative newcomer to Linux. When booting the kernel I get the error messages that my partitions could not be identified via udev or UUID (I don't recall exactly what the message was)
11:09<pascal>Though it works fine
11:09<cahoot>boot the the one you want, then aptitude purge the other when you know you have a working system
11:10-!-besthost_ [~besthost@] has joined #debian
11:10<cahoot>pascal: you do not want to remove kernels 'manually' - use aptitude
11:12<pascal>@cahoot: Thanks! I installed from the DVD not Businesscard, as the later option somehow could not remember the passphrase for encrypted LVMs (even tried it with phrase 123), only DVD would do and it installed trunk version before system upgrade to Sid.

20:19<Alvin>could php be used to open a hole in the system?
20:20<tomg>with PHP you can write files and execute code, unless this is locked down somehow

20:21<tomg>the security exploit of PHP I saw took advantage of a user-supplied variable to an include file that didn't set uhm

20:22<Alvin>I downloaded some free video tutorials off this guy's web site I can send you the url one tick
20:22<tomg>but I should also mention that last I heard, which was admittedly seven or so years ago, PHP was very insecure and they weren't doing anything about it

20:23<Alvin>huh? i thought it was the one of the more secure ssi scripting langs
20:23<aaronyy>There is hardened php
20:24-!-okamura [] has joined #debian
20:24<Alvin>where can I get that from hardened php?
20:25-!-niktaris_ [] has joined #debian
20:25<Alvin>so then ssh is still safe to use then what do you guys use as a firewall?
20:25-!-zigo_ [~quassel@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:25<tomg>I don't know about hardened PHP. Have you checked Google?
20:25<tomg>Yes, SSH is still safe to use, probably about two hundred times safer than PHP
20:25<Alvin>doin that now...
20:25-!-juanfer [~juanfer@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:25<aaronyy>It's called php5-suhosin in ubuntu
20:26<tomg>Firewalls are not commonly used on Linux and wouldn't stop someone from making a PHP exploit
20:26<tomg>I am a little surprised that someone would find and exploit a home-made PHP site
20:27<tomg>Yeah, so the last thing is that I don't think it was Ubuntu's fault either :-)
20:27<Alvin>are there any measures to implement once php is used? or is it DON't USE PHP?
20:28<scientes>well, ssh depends on password security
20:28<scientes>but if you set it to public key only
20:28<scientes>then you are pretty tight
20:28<scientes>but yeah, php is a differn't matter
20:28<scientes>but it does runs under a differnt user
20:28<scientes>and you can use MAC, etc
20:28<Alvin>how would I go about doing that would I have to carry the key on a usb stick?
20:29<scientes>Alvin, pretty much
20:29<scientes>just depends what the use scenario is
20:29<tomg>I'm not saying don't use PHP.
20:29<tomg>One idea is to wrap your Web site in an HTTP password until you know it's secure
20:29<scientes>or like I said, use MAC to sandbox your web server
20:30<scientes>i like TOMOYO
20:30<scientes>cause it is autolearning
20:30<scientes>i've been having alot of fun with it lately
20:30<tomg>Alvin: I think it's register_vars that you're supposed to turn off in PHP
20:30<Alvin>ok where can I learn about TOMOYO
20:30-!-niktaris [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:30<tomg>Alvin: There is also a safe_mode in php4.ini (and probably 5) to turn on if you want
20:31<Alvin>is that in the php.ini
20:31<scientes>i had to recompile linux, even though it is in the source
20:31<scientes>and then install tomoyo-tools
20:32<Alvin>do I have to change my sources.lst
20:32<tomg>safe_mode is, but register_globals... hmm it defaults to off nowadaysw
20:32<tomg>Alvin: You can also read the security section of the PHP manual:
20:33<tomg>Alvin: I mean
20:33<scientes>but yeah securying php like tomg says, and security user/group basics in your web server is more important
20:33<scientes>but MAC is fun
20:34<tomg>I imagine it is... I don't know what it is, though :-)
20:34<Alvin>ok I'll check this out
20:34<scientes>Mandatory Access Controls
20:34<scientes>like SElinux, but that is no fun :(
20:34<tomg>something from the NSA is no fun? Gasp
20:35<Alvin>what is Mandatory Access Controls

20:38-!-AbsintheSyringe [~havoc@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:39<tomg>Alvin: when someone write a page on your Web server they probably only had user www-data access, that is, the same user that PHP runs as
20:40<Alvin>I should have changed that user and reconfigured apache MY FAULT
20:41<tomg>not really, and it wasn't that big a deal if you ask me
20:41<tomg>I had no idea attackers were so aggressive nowadays
20:42<Alvin>I actually went through my root bash history and saw some stuff a script called va was used could'nt find it though
20:42-!-Lanz [] has joined #debian
20:43<tomg>oh. in that case maybe they gained root from www-data
20:43<Alvin>I will have to look at some ahrdening techniques for linux didn't realise it was that open

20:48<scientes>no, I actually liked tomoyo
20:48<scientes>it autolearns
20:48<tomg>you could establish a private tunnel to your Web server, but otherwise keep it behind NAT and a firewall
20:48<tomg>scientes: sorry, that's what I meant to say
20:49<Alvin>does that mean all comms will be through tunnels?
20:49<tomg>The Linux firewalling software is called Iptables and comes with Debian
20:49<dreamer000>To me it sounds impossible because you can't know all code thats on your harddisk.
20:49<tomg>Alvin: You could just do port 80 with a tunnel
20:49*dvs misses ipmasq
20:50<scientes>the out-of-tree tomoyo does per-process and per-domain firewalling tooo
20:50-!-mode/#debian [+l 384] by debhelper
20:50<tomg>ipmasq is gone in Debian 5.0?
20:50<scientes>but i'm using the in-tree version which can only do what LSM hooks enable ATM
20:50*tomg misses it too
20:50<dvs>tomg: yup
20:50<Alvin>what replaces ipmasq in 5.0

20:51<judd>ipmasq -- etch: 4.0.8-2; lenny: 4.0.8-7
20:51<gsimmons>dvs, tomg: No, it was removed post-Lenny (BTS #538384).
20:51<Alvin>you should still be able to masq ip address and do natting in 5.0?
20:51<tomg>Alvin: ipmasq is in 5.0 after all... it's an automatic NAT firewall setting up set of shell scripts

20:53-!-arri [] has joined #debian
20:53<Alvin>OK I'll try my best to harden my system anyway...
20:54<Alvin>I was just shocked out of my skin to learn that a linux system could be so easily compromised
20:54<tomg>actually it may be sobering to me too
20:55<arri>hi, i'm trying to burn a netinstall (or businesscard) ISO to dvd-media, but the result fails to boot.
20:55<Alvin>although saying that I'm still not absoulte about how the compromising took place the evidence is on that disk though...
20:55<arri>should this work? and is the disks the problem?
20:55<arri>or should i convert the (cd) iso first somehow?
20:56<arri>(i ran out of blank cd's..)
20:57<tomg>Alvin: that's a project in itself
20:57<Alvin>that's the scary bit I know how involved this is...
20:58<tomg>arri: I don't know, maybe someone else will though
20:58<dreamer000>the problem is that you had to go through all the php code before putting it into webspace
20:59<Alvin>arri: I think you need to ensure that the boot image is included in your files you should have all the instructions maybe it could be the software your'e using to burn...
20:59-!-angasule [~angasule@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
21:00<sof>You can download a couple of image files of small size, suitable for USB-Sticks and similar devices. Write them to the media, and then start the installation by booting from that.
21:00<sof>There is some diversity in the support for installing from various very small images between the architectures. Here are the links to the available image files (look at the MANIFEST file for information):
21:00<Alvin>I did though as I was learning the php code and writing each line from the ones from the video...
21:01<tomg>Alvin: speaking of which, you can give me the URLs to those videos if you want
21:01<arri>tomg,alvin: all i ready is that it should work, so i guess it's a bad media (el cheapo brand)
21:01<dreamer000>Yes you should get and burn the iso in a safe place. noone can tell wher did put some code. Did you run fprot and clamav to search on your hd?
21:01<Alvin>didn't see anything suspicious that's why I reckon this must have been an out and out attack rather than trojan code.
21:02<Alvin>don't have them installed it would seem that they are necessary then
21:03<Alvin>yeah one tick let me check...
21:03<dreamer000>Probably they only defined php-scriptcode for doing their job. But who knows? A good idea would also be rthen to have iptraf running

21:09<dreamer000>Can anyone tell whether this is a safe way because of the dns-requests of the child-processes?
21:09<Alvin>what is iptraf?
21:10<tomg>dreamer: you mean dns requests from iptraf tracking the connections? you can always turn those off anyway
21:10<dreamer000>you see all your connections and packets travelling through your network

22:11<dpkg>Is aptitude or apt-get trying to remove packages that it thinks were automatically installed? This happens when you "aptitude install gnome" and then later remove bits of it, the gnome meta-package will be uninstalled and aptitude will try to remove lots more. Fix this by running "aptitude install packagename" or "aptitude unmarkauto packagename" on strategically chosen packages, or reinstall the <metapackage>.
22:11<lontra>hi i just copied all my files and directories from a usb onto my hard drive and all of my files are in read only. how can i change these to read+write permission?
