00:03<kop>amakusa: It should autodetect. That tells you you're not mounting the right device or the right partition.
00:03<kop>amakusa: You could try '-t vfat'....
00:07<kop>amakusa: You can also use "file -s /dev/foo" to poke around.
00:09<amakusa>kop: I get no such file or directory :S
00:09<dpkg>foo is probably the probably first <metasyntactic variable>, it's a placeholder for some other term. See and <bar>, also read RFC3092.

05:40-!-dmorrison [] has joined #debian
05:40-!-kingsley [] has joined #debian
05:40<dmorrison>So uhm... I have a really baffling issue.
05:41-!-alephnull [~alok@] has joined #debian
05:41<dmorrison>I recently installed fglrx 10.9 on my copy of Lenny so that I could get hardware accelerated GL on my Radeon HD5570. It seems to work, even to the point of compositing working, but running anything GL just freezes. Now, here's where it gets strange
05:42<dmorrison>If I run glxinfo it just sits there, doing "name of display: :0.0" forever
05:43<dmorrison>if I then STOP glxinfo with ctrl+z, and then restart it with fg, and then do that AGAIN
05:43<dmorrison>it prints
05:44<dmorrison>But ONLY if I SIGTSTP SIGCONT SIGTSTP SIGCONT the thing.
05:44<dmorrison>Its output looks generally normal, otherwise.
05:44<dmorrison>Running glxgears does nothing... On a hunch, I decided to do the same thing I did to get glxinfo working, stop and then continue the program twice
05:45<dmorrison>Bamf, I got a window. Except the gears aren't moving at all. Nor is the thing printing an FPS counter.
05:45-!-angelabad [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:46<dmorrison>So I try Ctrl+Z, fg, Ctrl+Z, fg again, and bamf it gives me an absurdly low FPS reading and 2 more frames render
05:46-!-seanius [] has joined #debian
05:47<dmorrison>So my question is, does anybody know WHY this would happen, what I could do to fix it (Aside "buy an nvidia graphics card", something I am seriously considering), and just... what the heck?
05:49<dmorrison>I had the same problem on ubuntu, figured it was something to do with using a beta version of fglrx, so I went with Debian because that still uses XOrg 7.3 and thus can use fglrx 10.9
05:49<dmorrison> <-- This is the thread of me experiencing the problem on ubuntu. Note I hadn't figured out the stop/start/stop/start "solution" yet.
05:50<dmorrison>Anyway, I know its "Holy crap" in the morning, and thus I'm probably not going to get many people replying to this, but hopefully somebody logs and this odd situation catches their attention.
05:50<froglegstew>hi again
05:50<froglegstew>why im banned from debian-mentors?
05:50<froglegstew>(its my first time here)
05:51<Ganneff>dont use mibbit

06:44<maxxe>can i just att deb-src for sid and apt-get source vim and compile it for lenny? :P
06:45<dpkg>First, check for a backport on <debian-backports>. If unavailable: 1) Add ONLY a "deb-src ..." line for sid to your sources.list 2) enable debian-backports (see <bdo>) 3) aptitude update; aptitude install build-essential; aptitude build-dep packagename; apt-get -b source packagename; 4) install the resultant debs. To change compilation options, see <package recompile>; for versions newer than sid see <uupdate>.

08:45<ice2>hello sirs, is read() and write() is not ment to be called concurrently on a same file descriptor?
08:45<ice2>i did this on a serial (usb acm) device, and the data is corrupted...
08:47<mjt>you mean from 2 different threads or processes which shares the same fd?
08:47<ice2>mjt: yes, from 2 diff threads
08:47<Ganneff>i think you got your answer to your question in your result :)
08:48<mjt>each of them starts at "current pointer" and updates it when done
08:48<mjt>so you wont know where each started
08:48<mjt>there's only one 'current pointer'
08:48<ice2>mjt: read and write should use different current pointer i believe
08:48<ice2>mjt: btw i did this to similate a fuil-duplex transfer
08:49<mjt>no, there's only one current pointer
08:49<mjt>note that even if two _processes_ share the same fd#, it still has only one current pointer
08:49-!-f8l [] has joined #debian
08:49<mjt>so one process can seek() and another will read() or write() from that plac
08:50<mjt>and syscalls like dup() does _not_ make a copy of 'current file pointer'
08:50-!-ockham_ [] has joined #debian
08:51-!-byrd_cleveland [] has joined #debian
08:51<ice2>mjt: this "current pointer", is it point to the next data to be read, or write?
08:51<mjt>it is just 'current pointer', all operations that take it into accout will use it
08:51<mjt>lseek(SEEK_CUR) too

08:55<ice2>mjt: yes, actually its a usb modem (cdc acm) device
08:55<mjt>but that one does not have a 'current file position'
08:55<mjt>that position makes no sense for such situation, it's just not used
08:55<judaB>I have problem with my network interface when i am downloading at 80Mbit the server stop responding to pings ... i see in dmesg i have loaded two modules can someone assist me with troubleshooting

08:56<ice2>mjt: so u mean it should be possible to do read and write concurently?
08:56<ice2>on a tty device?
08:56<mjt>that's actually how some programs like pppd do that
08:56<mjt>uucp did that too
08:57<mjt>so you can receive and send network packets at the same time
08:57<mjt>your 'data is corrupted' - i assumed you're reading/writing from/to a plain file
08:58<mjt>for some reason :)
08:58<ice2>mjt: no, i'm writing embedded driver for usb device
08:58<ice2>the data that is received by the device is corrupted

09:01<mjt>ice2: sure there may be some corner cases or code paths that aren't used often

09:01<mjt>ice2: but for that stuff, i'd suggest asking in some more appropriate place, it's just too low-level for #debian
09:02<ice2>mjt: which driver? acm driver? or the one i;m writing? :)
09:02<ice2>mjt: yes, can;t the place, where?

10:32<dpkg>sid is the <unstable> version of Debian. Sid is the destructive kid in Toy Story. It is NOT an acronym, but is sometimes backronymed Still In Development anyway. Do not use sid unless you have the skill to find your way out of the mess that broken packages may put you in; sid is not supported in #debian because sid users should be able to solve their own problems. Sid will never be released. See also <sid faq> <unstable>.

17:07<mase_>f8l so youre welcome ;D
17:09<kop>behael: The application times out before the resolver times out and tries again with another nameserver. It's something odd about dns itself that's always been there. A nameserver will eventually come up with the right answer, and cache it for next time, but applications don't fail over well.
17:09<f8l>mase_: I'll search for permanent solution later.

18:28<locklace>spain took the afternoon off
18:28<edbian>I am looking for a linux distribution that is rolling release, not build from scratch, and uses 6 month old packages (for the stability). If I point my repos at testing do I achieve this goal?
18:29-!-onibus [~onibus@] has joined #debian
18:29<locklace>edbian: sure, if you only update every six months
18:29<locklace>edbian: but you don't necessarily gain any stability that way
18:29-!-QPrime [] has joined #debian
18:30-!-onibus [~onibus@] has quit []
18:30<tash>with 6 old month packages you'll be with 6 month old bugs
18:30<pipe>edbian: why exactly 6? those in testing ought to be about 1 month if you measure against upstream
18:30-!-Jussi [] has joined #debian
18:30<pipe>edbian: then of course, testing is currently in freeze, so there shouldn't be much going in there now except bug fixes
18:31<musca>rolling releases are not in a stable state, that's by design
18:31<edbian>I really don't care if it's exactly 6. Could be a year. I just said 6 to give you an idea
18:31<edbian>Does something like I'm describing exist? Rolling release with 1 year or 6 month old packages?
18:31<edbian>Obviously updating only every 6 months is not the same
18:31<pipe>You mean to say that you want everything there to have been tested
18:31-!-LegionSB [] has quit []
18:32<pipe>for an extensive period of time
18:32<rss>edbian: what are you looking for? a distro you can folllow or a release
18:32<tash>usually a rolling release distro is update in all aspect
18:32<edbian>rss, I don't know what you are asking
18:32<tash>and fia
18:32<edbian>pipe, Essentially yes.
18:32<edbian>tash, So you don't know of one?
18:32<rss>tash: yes that I agree with it's why I use sid
18:33<tash>edbian: until I know, there are only 2 BIG distro in the rolling release, and I feel dirty if I come here to #debian to endorse another distro
18:33<pipe>edbian: You could also just trust upstream
18:33<edbian>pipe, Do you mean to use sid?
18:34-!-vizor [~vizor@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
18:34<pipe>I don't mean anything, but these ideas come up now and then
18:34<dpkg>sid is the <unstable> version of Debian. Sid is the destructive kid in Toy Story. It is NOT an acronym, but is sometimes backronymed Still In Development anyway. Do not use sid unless you have the skill to find your way out of the mess that broken packages may put you in; sid is not supported in #debian because sid users should be able to solve their own problems. Sid will never be released. See also <sid faq> <unstable>.
18:34-!-vizor [~vizor@] has joined #debian
18:34<pipe>I've been running testing for a very long time
18:34<pipe>I have never had any problems I couldn't handle, but YMMV.
18:34-!-Spami|Thug [~Spami|] has quit [Quit: Quitte]
18:34<rss>edbian: Debian is a distro. it uses stable, testing frozen and unstable as releases. these are rolling targets! Each release follows a named release.
18:34-!-Spami|Thug [~Spami|] has joined #debian
18:34<pipe>There be dragons of course.
18:35<pipe>Rolling very far every 2 years ;)
18:35<edbian>Really, what I'm trying to avoid is the big annoying releases. If I point my repos at "stable" (If I were currently using lenny) will I ever have to do a massive package upgrade when for example squeeze becomes stable?
18:35<pipe>rss: By rolling, I assume he means that whenever upstream release a new version, it'll show up in his distro
18:35<craigevil>sid has been boring since Sarge
18:35<pipe>craigevil: You mean nothing breaks? :(
18:36<craigevil>nothing major, probably helps that I do not use kde4 or gnome
18:36<tash>as I see, the most near distro to your objetive, is testing, with packages kinda tested, enough to not be unstable. but , by definition (I guess) it isn't a rolling release distro
18:36-!-LegionSB [] has joined #debian
18:37<tash>6old package and rolling release are 2 concepts very distant
18:37<craigevil>edbian: just use stable + backports
18:37<pipe>edbian: As of now, testing is probably a good candidate for you. In a maybe-not-so-far future, debian might have a specific "stable" version of testing which is less prone to break
18:37-!-torgboy [] has joined #debian
18:37<craigevil>pipe: CUT? that's been tossed around for a while now
18:38-!-mzilikazi [~g@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:38<pipe>craigevil: It seemed to pick up speed again, or at least started some discussions
18:38<edbian>Do I have to do a dist-upgrade when stable and testing and sid all switch?
18:38<pipe>But I dunno.
18:38<edbian>If my repos are pointed at testing?
18:38<pipe>edbian: No
18:39<edbian>pipe, Well then that pretty much solves things for me.
18:39<rss>the rolling names correspond with named releases. currently lenny is the stable release.
18:40<tash>at the switch time, you'll have to upgrade a lot of packages I guess
18:40-!-cognac [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:40<pipe>edbian: if you put "testing" as the name, you'll keep using testing, if you now use "squeeze" as the name, you'll have testing until squeeze is stable, and then you will have stable.
18:40<edbian>Right now I'm pointed at squeeze. What should my sources.list look like?
18:41<edbian>pipe, Thanks :) Do you see anything other wrong with it?
18:41-!-Brian_R [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:41-!-Jussi [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
18:42<tash>you're using non-free repo, that's wrong ;), lol, just kidding
18:42<pipe>No, I don't. Sometimes there are trolls in the source list, but in general it works.
18:42<edbian>tash, :)
18:42<rss>edbian: policy is packages migrate from sid <unstable> to testing if they have enough retention time in sid. i.e. no mods in sid. I do not know what the current retention time is. recently squeeeze was frozen an no longer testing the muddies the water somewhat.
18:42<craigevil>edbian: do you want to stick with stable or testing?
18:42-!-angel [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:43<pipe>So hm, when squeeze is finally stable, will there be a flood of packages from sid to testing?
18:43<craigevil>i was surprised chromium-browser made it back into squeeze
18:45-!-angel [] has joined #debian
18:45<pipe>it did?
18:45<pipe>cool, I guess.
18:45<edbian>craigevil, Well currently I'm using squeeze which is testing. I can't decide if I'd like to fall back to stable when squeeze becomes stable or if I want to stick with testing forever.
18:45<tash>pipe: from testing to stable I guess
18:45<edbian>pipe, I'm using it to make the pastebin
18:45<craigevil>pipe: usually takes a couple of weeks after a release, but yeah lots of new packages hit sid and testing once a release happens
18:45-!-Martian67 [] has joined #debian
18:45<tash>chromium-browser is in main or contrib?
18:45-!-phoenix [] has left #debian [(''b)]
18:45<rss>edbian: sid will never switch! it is the rolling release of debian. Packages is sid can break! and you need to wait or fix yourself. It is not a release you can use if your cycle is six months. using sid and updateing six months late will probably break things. Testing is likely a better rolling release to follow for you.
18:45<edbian>So when squeeze becomes stable I'll get a large list of updates when I sudo aptitude update. Is that right?
18:46<edbian>rss, yeah I know. Why did you tell me that?
18:46<pipe>rss: He's not going to update every six months, he wants to update continuously but have "stable" and tested packages. I think he wants to avoid massive updates.
18:46<edbian>pipe, yes, that is a very good way to put it
18:47<tash>I thought that Chromium-browser, actualy, has license problems
18:48<pipe>It's nice that it doesn't
18:48<pipe>One major reason I use debian, I trust that people protect my freedom :)
18:50<rss>edbian: ok I get it. Then following testing is probably a good idea except when ther is a frozen. when there is a frozen release debian tries to get everything fixed to migrate from frozen to stable. That means testing is rolling but not when teher is a freeze. in freeze only bug fixes are allowed that help migration from old
18:51<edbian>That is going to bug me slightly
18:51<rss>from old stable to soon to be new stable
18:51<edbian>rss, Yeah I know
18:51<tash>I'll need to read about the current status of that browser
18:51<pipe>Hm, I opened up aptitude, updated, added chromium-browser, but even though it depends on chromium-browser-inspector, that package isn't added for installation
18:52<pipe>It's right there in the list, I can install it manually, and it's listed as a dependancy, but it's not added automatically. Odd.
18:52-!-Holborn [] has joined #debian
18:52<musca>so edbian should replace every appearance of "squeeze" to "testing" to avoid big upgrades in the future
18:52<pipe>musca: yes
18:53<edbian>musca, Yeah, but I'll still get a big punch of changes that build up during the frozen period. Then I'll get them all at once at the switch
18:53<craigevil>pipe: might be a bug in the depends on squeeze. The following NEW packages will be installed:chromium-browser chromium-browser-inspector libglewmx1.5 libv8-2.2.24
18:53<craigevil>thats on sid
18:53<pipe>craigevil: Ok, yeah, running squeeze on the laptop.
18:53<rss>edbian: when squeeze becomes stable you will get a large amount of updates, but care has been taken by the debian team to try to not break on the transition.
18:53<tash>I guess the one who suffer a lot of changes at switch is the stable
18:54<pipe>edbian: The amount of new packages won't be near the amount you get from a new stable
18:54<pipe>Also, I'm slightly disturbed by the fact that "stable" also means a building to keep horses.
18:55<tash>pipe : are you talking about the age of the versions?
18:58<rss>running apt-get update now
18:58-!-Volley [~worf@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
18:58<pipe>I meant that there won't be that many upgrades in testing when the freeze is over compared to the number of upgrades there will be in stable when the freeze is over..
18:58<rss>pipe: exactly
18:59<rss>running apt-get -ud upgrade now
18:59<tash>stable will change a lot, but I guess that any user who really need stable, has setup it to lenny and not to stable
18:59-!-MikeD [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
18:59<tash>since lenny wont change at switch time
18:59<pipe>Yeah. Hm. I should probably switch from testing to squeeze for my trusty old laptop.
19:00<rss>pipe: that is a good idea
19:01<rss>running apt-get -u upgrade now
19:02<edbian>What happens to a system pointed at lenny when squeeze becomes stable? Does it just age?
19:02-!-byrd_cleveland [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
19:02<pipe>There will be security releases for it for a while
19:03<musca>yes, lenny will point to "oldstable" then
19:03<pipe>Possibly as long it's the previous-stable, I don't know about that
19:03<edbian>I'm gonna switch my server now then.
19:03<rss>edbian: lenny will still be there and named old stable untill the drop it
19:03<pipe>lenny was a good release
19:04<edbian>I liked it
19:04<craigevil>i might be wrong but i think oldstable is usually supported for 18 months, before it is moved to archive
19:04<rss>pipe: lenny is currently the stable release so yeah!
19:04<musca>pipe: the period has been shortened to a maximum of one year

19:05<edbian>So, if I point my repos at testing when I update I randomly get surprised by new features in my software (along with bugs occasionally) ?
19:05<tash>aww :(
19:05<dpkg>Etch is the codename for Debian GNU/Linux 4.0, released on April 8th, 2007. Etch security support ended on 2010-02-15, this release is no longer supported. Etch users should upgrade to Lenny, ask me about <etch->lenny>. Removed from the mirrors (2010-06-20); ask me about <etch sources.list>. For old Etch ISOs, ask me about <etch iso>.
19:05-!-chitchat [] has joined #debian

19:06<tash>the support of etch lasted about 3 years as you can see
19:06<pipe>edbian: Exactly
19:07<edbian>pipe, Well then that's what I want. stable-ish packages. never have to do a major upgrade. full system (not built from scratch)
19:07<edbian>Thanks for all the help guys!
19:07<tash>so will you use testing?
19:07<rss>edbian: glad to be of service
19:07<dpkg>Testing is a continuously updated release between <stable> and <unstable>, currently codenamed <squeeze>. See and ask me about <testing faq> <lenny->squeeze> <testing security> <moving target> <dda> <apt-listchanges> and <bts>. You should have a sound knowledge of Debian packaging to use testing and should be prepared for a bumpy ride at times. Don't use it on things that are critical or on servers.
19:08<edbian>I'm going to put my repos at testing.
19:08<tash>just what I tought
19:08<tash>just what I *thought
19:08<musca>!testing security
19:08<dpkg>Now that squeeze is frozen, security support for testing start SOON. Put "deb squeeze/updates main contrib non-free" in your /etc/apt/sources.list file. Regularly update your APT index and upgrade (e.g. # aptitude update && aptitude full-upgrade) to keep up-to-date on security updates in Squeeze. Keep up to date by reading <d-d-a>. Also ask me about <d-s-a>, <apt-listchanges>.
19:09-!-gdb [] has joined #debian
19:09-!-Volley [~worf@] has joined #debian
19:10<craigevil>so it only gets security support while it is frozen?
19:10<pipe>sort of :)
19:10<edbian>So are there known security vulnerabilities in testing?
19:10<craigevil>i know normally packages move from sid into testing
19:10<musca>edbian: yes
19:11<rss>edbian: currently yes
19:11<edbian>musca, Do I need to start running malware and virus scanners?

19:13<edbian>craigevil, Good idea
19:13<musca>edbian: didn't you read? Don't use it on things that are critical or on servers.
19:13<pipe>or make people stop making programs that listen to random ports
19:13<edbian>musca, This isn't a server. Just my desktop machine.
19:14-!-hamzul [~hamzul@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
19:14<craigevil>edbian: yes but if it explodes do you have another computer you can use?
19:14<rss>edbian: the vulnerabilities when discovered wil either be fixed in sid which automatically migrate to testing. for the stable release there is a security site which maintains has updates for supported named releases.
19:14<edbian>craigevil, Of course! And full backups of my data :)
19:15<pipe>apt-get install bomb
19:16<edbian>So the vulnerabilities are all poorly written apps that listen to ports and then can be crashed by input on those ports?
19:16<edbian>Someone would have to be seriously hacking me (and know what the hell they are doing)
19:16<rss>pipe: bomb, what does that do? google search gives too many hits to be worthwhile browsing :-)
19:16<edbian>pipe, Please explain
19:16<edbian>rss, no such package
19:17<pipe>edbian: the vulnerabilities are not all poorly written apps that listen to ports
19:17<edbian>pipe, They're misc things?
19:17<craigevil>edbian: install and run debsecan

19:38<edbian>ha, yeah
19:38<musca>!apt-get autoclean
19:38<dpkg>i guess apt-get autoclean is like apt-get clean, autoclean clears out the local repository of retrieved package files. The difference is that it only removes package files that can no longer be downloaded, and are largely useless. This allows a cache to be maintained over a long period without it growing out of control.
19:39<pipe>Well, there must be another reason the packages are kept.

21:17<pipe>English, not confuse-ish
21:17<pipe>I don't know what you just meant, but maybe you're looking for something like "apt-get build-dep"?
21:17<franki^>"dpkg -l" will show you all the packages you have installed
21:18<pipe>Or maybe the package called module-assistant
21:19<Ikar>ok ok ok
21:19<Ikar>module-assistant . ................
21:19<dpkg>hmm... module-assistant is a tool helping to build additional (kernel) module packages and install them. "aptitude install module-assistant". See usage examples at . Log files from successful (and unsuccessful!) builds can be found in /var/cache/modass/

22:05<Nemoder>try aptitude install xfce4
22:06<qq->Sickler, fix your sources list , add main mirror

22:09<Sickler>giving the web installer a go
22:10<tash>what is the output of "apt-get install xfce4" ? are your repos ok?
22:10<qq->! why aptitude
22:10<dpkg>aptitude has more advanced conflict/dependency resolution and will often find a solution where apt-get gives up. It can be used from the command line like apt-get plus an interactive resolver makes it much easier to recover from broken dependencies. It has advanced search capabilities (see <aptitude search>).
22:10<qq->! why not aptitude
22:10<dpkg>Many never use the curses frontend but it is still in the binary; aptitude is more memory intensive and slower than apt-get. Its resolver can sometimes produce unexpected results. Many features of aptitude are now in libapt and used by apt-get as well, so the differences between the two have reduced. That said, aptitude is still the best way of to get out of tight spots when running sid or upgrading between releases.
22:10<pipe>! why maybe aptitude
22:11-!-edbian [] has joined #debian
22:11<Sickler>i am quite certain I was an ignoramus and didnt add the repo
22:11<tash>sickler it is on the main repo
22:12<Sickler>i got errors each time thats quite odd
22:12<dpkg>The list of repositories for installing packages is /etc/apt/sources.list and has lines like "deb http://ftp.<cc> lenny main" and "deb lenny/updates main" where <cc> is your country code. Be sure to run "aptitude update" after editing sources.list. Also see <mirrors> <apt-spy> <lenny security> <testing security> "man sources.list" and /usr/share/doc/apt/examples/sources.list

22:55<twb>Do I just add him to a dbus group or something?
23:00<twb>Adding myself to the "bluetooth" group (and logging out and back in) didn't help :-/

23:48<GPenguin>nifty, i will try that
23:48<Sickler>why does gnome always install by default
23:49<GPenguin>it installs by default?
23:49<Sickler>never have the option to choose
23:49<GPenguin>thats not true, you made a blind choice of "desktop" then, somewhere in tasksel
23:49<Sickler>i always have to install xfce on top of it and remove all the gnome files
23:50<GPenguin>you dont have to if you pay attention during the installation process

23:50<Sickler>aptitude install xfce4 doesnt work
23:51<GPenguin>scroll down in that list and you will see "manually select packages"
23:51<franki^>You have to choose the desktop environment at the very start of the installation, long before tasksel
23:51<franki^>From the initial menu, before you start the installation proper
23:51<GPenguin>if you choose the graphical installer maybe, but you can always choose the expert installation
23:52<franki^>Well, personally I never install a DE, but that's how I thought it worked
23:52<Sickler>my only options are install graphial install advanced and help
23:52<Sickler>maybe i have a wrong iso
23:52<GPenguin>and maybe the meta package is called xfce-desktop or something
23:53<Sickler>tried all of those
23:54-!-streuner_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:55<franki^>Well, it's been a long time since I've installed Debian, but try the "advanced" menu and see if there's a "Desktop environment" type option
23:56-!-bja [] has joined #debian
23:56<GPenguin>or simply stay with the base-install, end the installer, boot into your new system and do the "apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade && apt-get install xfce4" magic
23:56<GPenguin>nobody forces you to install Gnome :-)))
23:57<franki^>That too
23:57<bja>There is a way to install different desktop environmens, lxde,and a bunch others
23:58<franki^>In the "advanced options" menu IIRC, I just said that :)
