00:01<jpinx-eeepc>my Toshiba T800 runs debian perfectly
00:01-!-israelst [~israel@] has joined #debian
00:01<jpinx-eeepc>* T8000
00:01<Silicium01>jordanm, you mean the specs or the build?
00:01-!-israelst [~israel@] has quit []

00:02-!-jaimesilva [~jaime@] has joined #debian
00:02<jordanm>Silicium01: both
00:03<Silicium01>I'm just exhausted from searching for a laptop
00:03-!-w3asel [~w3asel@] has quit [Quit: Sayonara, Domo arigato gozaimash]
00:04<jordanm>the T400 was the thinkpad I last used, and one of best laptops I have had
00:05<jpinx-eeepc>Silicium01: why new?
00:05<Silicium01>jpinx-eeepc, well, I need something powerful enough to replace my desktop
00:05-!-prem [~prem@] has joined #debian
00:05<jordanm>laptops are not desktop replacements
00:05<Silicium01>so need at least 4 g or ram and better than core2duo cpu
00:05<jpinx-eeepc>Silicium01: my eeepc replaced my desktop :)
00:06<Silicium01>jordanm, I know, but I need to do that
00:06<jordanm>plenty of people try.. but I think those people don't compile code.. or enjoy buying new laptops every couple years
00:06<jordanm>laptops take more wear and tear, and die quicker
00:06<Silicium01>jordanm, the most intensive thing I'll do is watch hd video, fullscreen flash or run eclipse for php
00:07<jordanm>all of those things are enought to do serious CPU usage
00:07<jpinx-eeepc>Silicium01: get a headless hi-spec box and sh into it from a thin client/laptop
00:07<Silicium01>jpinx-eeepc, I can tell from your nick you really like it :)
00:07<jordanm>well, not so much ecplise/php
00:07<Silicium01>jpinx-eeepc, ssh into it for what/
00:08<jpinx-eeepc>Silicium01: seriously - you can afford a *really* hi-spec cpu in a headless and maybe HDD-less box, and use a laptop as the thin client
00:08<Silicium01>I need to be mobile, so what I decided is to buy a laptop, and BE mobile, at home I'll just connect it to a larger screena nd real keyboard/mouse
00:09<jpinx-eeepc>Silicium01: that's what I do - eeepc, ext widesceen and big old kbd ;)
00:09-!-mahipal [~mahipal@] has joined #debian
00:09<Silicium01>jpinx-eeepc, right
00:10<Silicium01>I just dont fully understand your ssh suggestion
00:10<Silicium01>where would the box be?
00:10<jpinx-eeepc>but you want more power, so get one of those "cpu only" bosex that accepts an ssh connection but has no kbd, screen etc outputs
00:10<acu>hey guys _ I am looking either for a way to expand the numbers of PCI (or PCIe) ports for a motherboard, or find PCIe or PCI boards with two USB controlers instead of one - can anyone give me a hint ?
00:10<jordanm>I don't get it. I have been using a laptop as a main system for the past two weeks, because I have no other choice, and I have found it misrable
00:10<jpinx-eeepc>Silicium01: you really can't compile on a laptop unless you really spend a lot on a top spec one-
00:11<Silicium01>jpinx-eeepc, I dont compile anything
00:11<jpinx-eeepc>jordanm: what laptop?
00:11-!-mahipal [~mahipal@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:11<jordanm>acu: why two controllers?
00:11<jordanm>jpinx-eeepc: its a dell D620. I got used for cheap, wouldn't recommend it. good compatibility however
00:11<qq->acu i-acu ..
00:11<jpinx-eeepc>Silicium01: ah - my bad - I thought you want to compile - go for a top spec eeepc and get mobile :)
00:12-!-massmc [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:12<jordanm>jpinx-eeepc: he wants to hd video, which can be as bad
00:12<jpinx-eeepc>jordanm: yea - I was not happy with a Dell I had the use of for a while
00:12<Silicium01>jpinx-eeepc, well, I need a better resolution so eepc is out of the question
00:12<jpinx-eeepc>Silicium01: crank the resolution when you plug in the external screen
00:13<Silicium01>so when I'm out and about I need at least 1366x786 but at home I'll connect to my 1920x1080 screen
00:13<jpinx-eeepc>jordanm: you should look at toshibas laptops
00:13<Silicium01>jordanm helped me today with HP laptop I bought, I'm returning it tomorrow and gettign something else
00:13<jordanm>jpinx-eeepc: my one before was a toshiba, I thought it was crap
00:13<acu>jordan: three or more USB chipset per PCI(e) board will be even better - one controler is REALLY SLOW - you can't have two Webcams at higher resolution on a board with a single chipset
00:13<jpinx-eeepc>sheeesh - are both #debian s off-topic or what? :)
00:13<jordanm>the only laptops I have liked, were my two thinkpads
00:14<jpinx-eeepc>stinkpads are good
00:14<jordanm>jpinx-eeepc: its late.. and semi-offtopic
00:14<Silicium01>jpinx-eeepc, do you think intel HD integrated graphics is good enough for HD video on a connected 1080p screen?
00:14<jpinx-eeepc>and they run linux well
00:15<jordanm>Silicium01: there are websites that do benchmarks.. mostly in windows but it shouldn't be too much difference
00:15<jpinx-eeepc>Silicium01: nfc dude - I don't use my computer to watch stuff apart from the odd Utoob
00:15-!-coredump [~coredump@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:16<jordanm>Silicium01: intel has historically the worst performing graphics chips
00:16-!-nickw1 [] has joined #debian
00:16<jordanm>much better over the past 3-4 years though
00:16-!-Gingerbread-Man [] has joined #debian
00:16-!-nickw1 [] has quit []
00:16<Silicium01>jordanm, :) yes, but they are guaranteed to work, right?
00:17<jordanm>there are a select few that have trouble with the the new KMS... older ones though I think
00:17<jordanm>jpinx-eeepc: didn't you have kms issues? or was that abrotman?
00:17<jpinx-eeepc>kms? jordanm
00:18-!-massmc [] has joined #debian
00:18<jordanm>jpinx-eeepc: squeeze
00:18<dpkg>[KMS] Kernel Mode Setting, where the initialization of graphical modes is performed by the Linux kernel instead of X. It is hardware dependent, introduced in Linux 2.6.29. Enabled via modprobe as of xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.9.1-2 and xserver-xorg-video-radeon 1:6.12.192-2. To disable, edit /etc/modprobe.d/{i915,radeon}-kms.conf or boot with the 'nomodeset' kernel command line parameter.
00:18-!-jaimesilva [~jaime@] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
00:18<jordanm>I will take a guess and say i915 is the one to avoid :)

00:19<jpinx-eeepc>jordanm: not me mate - leeny here untill squeeze is stable for a few months
00:20<jpinx-eeepc>I got my bum bitten in the past for upgradding too early and not having time to sort out the mess
00:21<Silicium01>jpinx-eeepc, by the way, is there any signifficant difference if I connect the other display with DVI/HDMI vs analog?
00:21<jordanm>i upgraded all my remaining desktop systems after the freeze... not for the sns, but for the help in filing bugs
00:21<jordanm>Silicium01: yes
00:22<Silicium01>jordanm, so I should look for ones with hdmi or dvi then right?
00:22<Silicium01>does you reepc have one?
00:22<Silicium01>your eepc*
00:22<jordanm>hdmi also has the benefit of including sound'
00:22<jordanm>Silicium01: most will have it these days
00:22<Silicium01>jordanm, that's nice, although my live cd didnt make it work

00:42<Silicium01>jpinx-eeepc, :) doing that for 3 days streight
00:43<jpinx-eeepc>Silicium01: unless you find someone who actually has the model youa re interested in you will not get much help here
00:44-!-KoYoTt [] has joined #debian
00:44<Silicium01>jpinx-eeepc, honestly, I am just looking for models that work, so that I can just go buy it
00:44<Silicium01>but need something recent
00:44<Silicium01>recent & decent
00:45<Silicium01>jpinx-eeepc, I'm just going to head out. thanks for help mat
00:45<jpinx-eeepc>Silicium01: it's a minefield - in eeepc's alone there are just so many variations even within the same model, depending on when it was made and for what market
00:45<jpinx-eeepc>Silicium01: good luck - you know you'll get all the help possible once you come back here .. :)

08:13<Zaba>hey guys, I've got a freshly installed unstable system, and 'apt-get install postfix' wants to install 'libmysqlclient16 libperl5.10 libpg5 mysql-common' in addition to 'postfix' and 'ssl-cert'. And it immediately lists those packages as 'no longer required', too.
08:13<Zaba>I observe that those four packages are dependencies of postfix-mysql and postfix-pgsql, which it Suggests, but doesn't want to install.
08:14<Zaba>also, doing 'aptitude install postfix' only (correctly) brings up postfix and ssl-cert.
08:14<Zaba>why does it do that? Am I overlooking something? Or is it a bug?

09:06<themill>Zaba: (sorry called away) I've seen this in the past and iirc it's related to the change over between exim and postfix at the same time.
09:06-!-vincent is now known as jazon
09:06<Zaba>mxey, then it pulls in exim4-daemon-heavy.
09:07<Zaba>...with the aforementioned four packages as dependencies, naturally.

09:49-!-awoodland [] has joined #debian
09:49<jaimesilva>well, that's a good question...
09:49<jaimesilva>you should use a gui for networkmanager
09:50<edbian>A placed a script in cron.daily. Now the system mails me a copy of the massive output file. How do I turn this off?
09:50<jaimesilva>I think in lxde you should use the one for gnome
09:50<babilen>zeus_: I guess that the "nm-applet" (for Gnome) works just fine in lxde
09:50<@Ganneff>edbian: by not outputting anything to stdout or stderr
09:50<zeus_>can you do a dpkg --getseletion | grep networkmanager on your os ?
09:50<@Ganneff>edbian: cron does mail any of that. so redirect it into a log
09:50-!-jamuraa [] has joined #debian
09:51<themill>edbian: cron jobs should be silent unless there's a problem that you need to be told about
09:51<edbian>rsync -aui --delete /home/ /mnt/backup/>/dev/null should work then in the script?
09:51-!-ant777 [proxyuser@] has joined #debian
09:51<jaimesilva>zeus_: I use KDE so I'm using knetwormanager, I think you should goggle for the best networkmanager frontend for lxde
09:51<babilen>edbian: You might just add "1>/dev/null 2>&1" in the end
09:52<themill>but then you'll never know if there are problems
09:52<edbian>I found a -q flag for rsync. I'll use that
09:52<edbian>Thanks for the help

10:03<ema29>do you have a .xsession?

10:03<moro>a .xsession? i startx as root
10:03<moro>i ll have a check..
10:04<moro>no..there is no .xsession in /root/
10:04<moro>but the .xsession does exist in /etc/X11
10:04<ema29>it's generally best not to run startx as root, although that's unlikely to be the problem here
10:04<moro>i do find it over much config file..i dont know how to solve this problem
10:04<jaimesilva>so top doesn't show a process that's making all the io work, and iotop -a -o shows kjournald on top of the list
10:05<ema29>moro: you mean /etc/X11/Xsession ?
10:05<moro> dear ema29,thank you.i ll use a normal user then...but i can't startx

11:58<valdyn>dominick: thats another trick question

11:58-!-kurumin [~kurumin@] has joined #debian
11:58<valdyn>dominick: what is a "partition" ? its not clearly defined
11:58<valdyn>dominick: maybe the mean dos partition
11:59-!-ema29 [] has left #debian []
11:59<koollman>dominick: 'many' is a valid answer ? :)
11:59<valdyn>dominick: or maybe they dont, then i can define 1 partition per byte, duh
11:59<kurumin>how are you?
11:59<dominick>but isn't there a limit in the MBR?
11:59<valdyn>dominick: are we doing your homework?
12:00<valdyn>dominick: the dos partition table only has space for 4 partitions
12:00<dominick>valdyn, yeah, that's 4 primary partitions.
12:00<dominick>I kinda answered that,
12:00-!-AbsintheSyringe [~havoc@] has quit [Quit:]
12:00<dominick>and that 3 can be primary and another extended can create a few more
12:01<dominick>but I really didn't know about dos partitions.
12:01<dominick>i'll ask dpkg
12:01<valdyn>dominick: but dos supports creating partition on partitions, thats called extended partition

12:44<flashn>is this what is generally called "base"?
12:44<flashn>or does it depend on what medium or release of debian?
12:46-!-mode/#debian [+l 453] by debhelper
12:46<flashn>the problem is.. I have done apt-get update && apt-get upgrade and after that I tried adding some stuff like gcc etc.. only to find out gcc doesnt seem available in the repo that was setup in this installation
12:46<dpkg>somebody said build-essential was a package designed to help you create executables and build Debian packages. If you get errors saying gcc cannot create executables or can't find header files like stdio.h, you need to "aptitude install build-essential". If you don't plan to compile things, you don't need this package. Ask me about <qotd49>.
12:46<bremner_>!tell flashn -about sources.list
12:46<flashn>only references to gcc is to gcc-4.4base
12:46<flashn>yes, but why do I need to update sources.list? it just points to squeeze/testing main
12:47<cahoot>flashn: tried installing build-essential?
12:47<flashn>shouldent it be referenced if I do "apt-cache search gcc"

17:30<dpkg>If you're running one of the desktop environments in Debian, then ask me about <gnome-volume-manager>, <kde automount>, or <thunar-volman>. If you want something for the command line, then ask me about <halevt>, <ivman> or <usb mount>. For a completely different approach to automounting, ask me about <autofs>.

17:31<dpkg>from memory, ntfs-3g is a user-space NTFS driver with write support and good performance, packaged for Debian. Usage examples: . Ask me about <user accessible ntfs>.
17:31<kop>newman555: What does automounting have to do with seeing partition content? You probably need to add yourself to a group.
17:32<qq->!user accessible ntfs
17:32<dpkg>To get an NTFS or VFAT file system accessible by users and groups on the local machine, man mount; man 5 fstab; and read about the umask, fmask, dmask, uid, and gid options. You'll end up sticking something like conv=auto,uid=<user>,gid=<group>,dmask=0002,fmask=0003 into your fstab's mount option field.

23:05<jordanm>Silicium01: with nvidia, you have sub-par OSS drivers, but excellent non-free. with ati your have good OSS drivers, but crap non-free drivers
23:05<jordanm>Silicium01: and.. acer... I personally would never guy

23:09<Silicium01>jordanm, agree, but they don't carry those any more, and it's very hard to find used

23:11<Silicium01>jordanm, just to confirm that I have not gone crazy:
23:11<Silicium01>I have come to a realization, that it does not matter what size the scren is, what matters is resolution
23:11<Silicium01>am I right in this?
23:12<Silicium01>like why would I buy a 15.6 in ch laptop that has same resolution as 13.1" one for example. If my primary goal is to have it connected to a larger screen
23:12<jordanm>well, both matters... if you had 1920x1200 on a 13" screen, you wound't be able to read crap
23:12-!-edbian [] has joined #debian
23:12<Silicium01>well yes, 1920 is extreme for 13"
23:12<jordanm>I knew someone with that res on a 15".. and I thought it was terrible
23:13<Silicium01>but I think 1366x786 just makes more sense on 13" no?
23:13<jordanm>thats better than what I have on on my 14.something
23:13<Silicium01>jordanm, it's funny you say that, almost bought a Thinkpad W500 which is exactly that, 15" with 1920x1200
23:14<jordanm>Silicium01: but really, at this point, you are asking someone who will no longer buy as non-thinkpad laptop, so I am bias
23:14<Silicium01>I want to stay away from larger sized laptops, since 1366x786 is just right for my mobile work and rest of the time I can just use 1920 x 1080 screen

23:28<Hydroxide>jordanm: I believe the answer right now is yes, though I have no idea how that will change when the project fully implements Debian's recent vote to make it easier for non-packaging contributors to become full members

23:29<dondelelcaro>I don't think OFTC gives cloaks to DDs
23:29<jordanm>Hydroxide: I am subed to -vote, and I kept up with the discussion. translaters and documentation writers were mentioned specifically, but not end-user support guys.. anyways, I am now a package contributor as well
23:29<dondelelcaro>cloaks are pretty useless anyway
23:30<Hydroxide>dondelelcaro: the question was about freenode
23:30<jordanm>I never bothered to get one on oftc. its not really about the "cloak" aspect, as much as showing my affiliation with the project

23:31<Hydroxide>jordanm: yeah, and that sort of thing is common in freenode culture, so I understand completely

23:40<jordanm>Hydroxide: so who is actually in charge of that sort of thing on freenode? I figured it would be you or don

23:43<jordanm>dondelelcaro: ah. I don't think I have ever seen him on freenode. I suppose I am a late-comer to the debian community though

23:46<Hydroxide>jordanm: I don't know if I've ever seen him there either :) yet somehow he's in charge of that
23:46-!-gdb [] has joined #debian
23:46<Hydroxide>jordanm: well, I guess I saw him there before debian moved here, but...
23:47<Hydroxide>jordanm: anyway, he's also one of the primary people who will react to that vote
23:48<jordanm>I will shoot him an email about it, thanks
23:48<Hydroxide>heh, good luck :)
