00:00<Guest425>hi admin
00:01<jmarsden>Guest425: For backtrack, try the #backtrack-linux channel on Freenode. This channel is for Debian support. Not vmware, and not backtrack.
00:01<administrator>what is linux ? it is not the same with windows.
00:01<sney>you can say that again

00:07-!-KarlHeinzGrasser [] has quit [Quit: Verlassend]
00:07<gsimmons>Habstinat: Is this a Lenny system? You probably want service(8) from the sysvconfig package.
00:07<Habstinat>jmarsden: No output.
00:07<Habstinat>gsimmons: It is a Lenny system. I'll try that.
00:08*jmarsden thinks that if it is a Lenny system, he doesn't "have the newest version of sysvinit-utils" by definition.

00:50<dpkg>BackTrack is not Debian and is not supported in #debian (ask me about <based on debian>). Try or #backtrack-linux on instead. BackTrack is a Linux distribution based on <Ubuntu> Intrepid (as of BackTrack 4), previously <SLAX>. Derived from merging two penetration-testing distributions: WHAX (formerly WHOPPIX) and Auditor Security Linux.

00:58<mothermcfucker>It needs to be spelled lame-o-meter, if not it woud sound:
00:58<mothermcfucker>lah mee oh mee ter
00:58<sney>i usually see it as nickometer
00:58<mothermcfucker>nih kah meh ter?
00:58<sney>you're reaching

00:59<mothermcfucker>look at how the word is spelled

01:00-!-noorul [~user@] has joined #debian
01:00<noorul>hello fellow debian users
01:01<noorul>I am facing an issue while installing squeeze using netinst CD image
01:01<mothermcfucker>I'd like to know if anyone has natively built emdebian ppc packages on the ppc platform
01:01<mothermcfucker>what's the problem?
01:03<kop>noorul: Bad floppy?
01:03<noorul>I do not have floppy drive
01:03<noorul>and the image contains firmware
01:04<noorul>I downloaded the image from
01:04<noorul>as per
01:04<kop>noorul: Perhaps you could use an image that does not contain firmware and put the firmware somewhere else. Or tell your bios you don't have a floppy. That might or might not help. If not then file a bug report.
01:04<babilen>noorul: Give more details (which image, why does it contain firmware, medium used, installation technique, actual problems)
01:04<noorul>kop: I did that first
01:05<kop>noorul: Which "that"?
01:05<mothermcfucker>What machine is it? Model?
01:06<noorul>kop: I did try with the one from here
01:06<noorul>kop: It gave me the same problem. I thought that it might be looking for firmware from floppy drive
01:06-!-edbian [] has quit [Quit: Bye]
01:06-!-Graebob [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:06<noorul>kop: So I went ahead and downloaded the one with firmware from
01:06<noorul>kop: which is also giving the same problem
01:07-!-tash [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:07<noorul>mothermcfucker: I have IBM ThinkPad R52
01:07<sney>I wonder if the kmuto installer would work
01:07<sney>though I guess those are just for leenny
01:08<dpkg>For Debian Lenny installers with up-to-date kernels, see . The <bnx2> and <bnx2x> firmware files for Linux 2.6.32 are included in 0116 images.
01:08<noorul>Do you think I should file a bug? Or is there any place where I can confirm before filing one?
01:08<noorul>sney: they are for lenny
01:09<sney>I believe installer bugs are filed under debian-installer, one thing to do would be to browse for similar/the same problems
01:09<sney>you could install the absolute barebones netinst lenny and upgrade
01:10<noorul>sney: I am using lenny now
01:10<noorul>sney: I want to do a fresh install
01:13-!-Veggiesaurus [] has joined #debian
01:13<retrospectacus>!beer Veggiesaurus
01:13*dpkg pulls out a nicely refined Yuengling Lager for Veggiesaurus
01:13<kop>noorul: It'd still be fresh. :-P
01:13<noorul>kop: I want to wipe off my harddisk
01:13<Veggiesaurus>mmmm... Lager
01:14-!-jthill [] has joined #debian
01:14<kop>noorul: So _install_ lenny.
01:14<noorul>kop: I am already on lenny. I want to wipe off my hard disk and bring it up with squeeze
01:14<noorul>kop: This is what I am trying to do.
01:14<mothermcfucker>install a simple base , kernel, and tools, nothing else
01:15<kop>noorul: Install a minimal lenny and upgrade to squeeze. Ta-Dah! Fresh install.
01:15<mothermcfucker>I have an m275 which is only a few years older
01:16<babilen>we can't advocate lenny->squeeze for new installs for ages.
01:16<sney>noorul: you should look for a bug and/or file one, though
01:16<mothermcfucker>I'd say no
01:16-!-Veggiesaurus [] has quit []
01:16<mothermcfucker>How much did you try to install? a working desktop?

01:17-!-Veggiesaurus [] has joined #debian
01:17<babilen>noorul: I don't think that the unofficial dailies were part of the official cd built run ... What is the actual error you get?
01:17<jthill>I can't seem to find what name to feed to speaker-test. everything I try says ALSA lib pcm.c:2190:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM *foo*
01:17<jthill>where *foo* is everything I've tried
01:17-!-Veggiesaurus [] has quit []
01:18<jthill>from /dev. from /sys/class/sound/id. from the names shown on alsamixer.
01:18<kop>I can look in mirror-logs/debian-mirror.log to see how recent a mirror is, but how do I tell whether a mirror really has squeeze on it?
01:18<jthill>from the tags in /var/lib/alsa/asound.state
01:18<noorul>babilen: That is what I get when I use 6.0.0 official netinst i386 image
01:19-!-v [] has joined #debian
01:19<kop>noorul: You could try upgrading your bios.
01:19<noorul>mothermcfucker: Why should I not file a bug?
01:19-!-entrylevel [] has joined #debian
01:20<mothermcfucker>You can if you want
01:20-!-debainseattle [] has left #debian [Leaving]
01:20<noorul>mothermcfucker: I think you said no
01:20<babilen>noorul: Ok, bunch of warnings/errors about firmware and fat filesystems. Why do you use fat?
01:20<mothermcfucker>but did you try to install an entire environment or just a basic working system?
01:20<jthill>where can I find what device names to feed to speaker-test, please?
01:20-!-v is now known as vstein
01:20<noorul>babilen: I am not using FAT file system. I don't even have a floppy drive
01:21<dpkg>i guess speaker-test is do; "speaker-test -tsine -f440 -c2" or perhaps "speaker-test -t wav -c 2" for a nicer female voice, instead of a tone to test if speakers are working in alsa (install alsa-utils), ask me about <alsa checklist> and <soundcheck>
01:21<noorul>babilen: isofs_fill_super: bread failed, dev=sda2, iso_blknum=16, block=32
01:21<babilen>noorul: From what kind of media are you installing?

01:24-!-porter_ [] has joined #debian
01:25<noorul>babilen: Nothing happens. The screen stays with no message
01:25<jthill>retrospectacus: thanks, I've been down those roads. I can actually get it working with pulse, when I set my .asoundrc to
01:25<jthill>then all is good, speakertest works, everything.
01:25<babilen>noorul: Ok, do you need your wifi card?
01:25<noorul>babilen: I am not able to proceed
01:26<noorul>babilen: not necessary initially. I can configure that later. But installer is not asking me a question
01:26<noorul>babilen: It straight away tries to configure my wifi device
01:26<jthill>but I want to try jack, and I figured the thing to do was to pull the pulse part out. if I remove .asoundrc, alsamixer still knows about all the devices and I can tweak settings and volumes,
01:26<kop>noorul: You tried expert mode?
01:26<noorul>kop: no
01:27<jthill>but I can't get any sound out and speaker-test can't find a damn thing even though alsamixer will happily show me everything.
01:27<noorul>kop: I think that is not the point here.
01:27-!-porter_ [] has quit []
01:27<noorul>kop: I can live with lenny
01:27<kop>noorul: That might give you options. Just a thought. (I've not been following closely.)
01:27<noorul>kop: The question is why squeeze installer is failing on a laptop that survived almost all versions of debian
01:28-!-headyadmin [] has quit [Quit: headyadmin]
01:29<jthill>I've tried the alsaproject site. I've tried the man pages, which give me lengthy and loving details about what"+=" and "-=" mean. But nothing ties what I put on the command line to any identifier I can find, anywhere.
01:29<babilen>noorul: Ok, I would try these things: 1. Supply on an USB stick or 2. Choose "expert" install and skip the network device configuration and detection and just install a minimal system
01:29-!-bemawi [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:29<babilen>noorul: And yes, you want to report that bug.
01:29<noorul>babilen: Let me try export mode

01:36<kop>FYI, ZykoticK9 has had an interesting not-able-to-boot the squeeze install cd problem in the last 15 minutes or so over on freenode. I wonder if it has to do with configuring syslinux so that the image can be copied straight to usb stick?)

02:26<gsimmons>yondering: Not supported, TTBOMK.
02:26<gsimmons>dpkg: poulsbo
02:26<dpkg>Poulsbo is the codename of Intel's first System Controller Hub, found in several <netbooks>. Its GMA 500 graphics core is not supported by the intel Xorg driver; ITP xserver-xorg-video-psb filed as Debian bug #533450.
02:27<yondering>gsimmons, thanks.

02:30<Hydroxide>hi tomi :)
02:30<tomi>if postgres 8.4.7 go into squeeze ?
02:31<tomi>first must go in testing , im right ?
02:31-!-tash [] has joined #debian
02:31<bartm>tomi, right
02:31<Hydroxide>tomi: no new upstream versions of anything are going to go into squeeze. debian doesn't do that for any stable releases including (as of now) squeeze
02:31<Hydroxide>tomi: however, debian will apply security fixes to squeeze's postgresql
02:31<bartm>tomi, after testing it can go to backports
02:31<Hydroxide>tomi: and really critical bug fixes
02:32<Hydroxide>but, yes, bartm is right, squeeze-backports will allow a newer pg. I guess it's up to maintainers of the backports whether they want to bother with 8.4.7 or just provide 9.0 only
02:33<tomi>hm, but in lenny, new upstream release of 8.3.* are put into lenny , why ?
02:33-!-vapaa_afk [] has joined #debian
02:34<Hydroxide>tomi: are you sure? I don't think any new release of postgresql has gotten into lenny since 2009, except security fixes to the existing lenny version

02:37<tomi>Hydroxide: i am almost sure
02:37<Hydroxide>tomi: indeed, you are right ... in that case it is probably because upstream's releases contained only things that are suitable for debian stable updates, which is not generally true for our upstreams

02:39<tomi>so if for prostgres upstream are put into stable, new 8.4 will be put into squeeze to ?
02:39-!-angel [] has joined #debian
02:39<tomi>Hydroxide: 8.3.14 was release 2011.02.01
02:39<tomi>so it must be added to lenny last week
02:40-!-kiran [~kiranatre@] has joined #debian
02:40<Hydroxide>tomi: squeeze *is* our stable now ... if postgresql 8.4.6 and 8.4.7 contain only improvements that are suitable for debian stable updates, then yes, it might still make it into squeeze. if it contains other stuff like new features, the security and critical bugfixes will get backported but the new features won't
02:40-!-kiran [~kiranatre@] has quit []
02:41<Hydroxide>tomi: if you are specifically concerned with the security fixes mentioned at I am sure debian will put those into squeeze, yes.

03:19<Hydroxide>Gurka: I can easily believe it might be something about your hardware that is confusing the kfreebsd installer. it is pretty new with fewer guarantees than the well-tested linux ports. (so your installation reports will help!) the linux ports will probably work for you, as for most people.

03:51<_Alex__>Sid is Debian 3
03:52<_Alex__>Squeeze is supernew
03:52<dpkg>Woody is the codename for Debian GNU/Linux 3.0, released on July 19, 2002. Security support for woody was terminated on 2006-06-30. Woody was archived on 2007-01-10, ISOs are available from . See also <woody sources.list> and <woody->sarge>.
03:52<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>.

04:11<sney>because it's aptitude (or apt-get) purge packagename

05:13<l0p3z>hi, i have a little problem. I want to install btg on a debian lenny but when I try to configure it I obtain Requested 'libtorrent >= 0.12' but version of libtorrent is 0.11.9
05:14-!-edog [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
05:14<l0p3z>how can I upgrade libtorrent?
05:14<jimpanse>hey someone know where i can order those Tshirts?
05:14<dpkg>First, check for a backport on <debian-backports>. If unavailable: 1) Add ONLY a <deb-src> line for sid to /etc/apt/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>.
05:14<valdyn>l0p3z: ^^
05:18<cahoot>does openssh in debian care about hosts.allow/deny?

06:03<bartm>hi, I have an HP Pavilion dv5 laptop, with an atheros wifi card with an hardware rfkill switch. I'm surprised to see that the hardware rfkill switch doesn't seem to be supported. Solutions?
06:03<jimpanse>maybe he downloaded the wrong image or in /etc/apt/sources.list everything aks for testing?

06:04<gsimmons>bartm: You might be able to use /dev/rfkill to manipulate it ; /msg dpkg rfkill
06:06<bartm>gsimmons, that is about a software rf kill switch, so unfortunately that's no solution for me
06:06-!-ernesto [foobar@] has joined #debian
06:07<valdyn>bartm: but probably part of it, watch acpi events and hit that button

07:26<valianholt1>image from:
07:26<valianholt1>and image:
07:26<valianholt1>are still exactly the same? or there are some small differencies, like there will be boot screen with some text "Debian 6.0 Squeeze" in the stable version?

07:28<abrotman>valianholt1: use the official one .. but really, the end result would be the same
07:28<babilen>valianholt1: Use the images from
07:28-!-hever [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
07:29<valianholt1>ok, my idea is, that I would like to use testing, not stable... so I don't want any specific Debian 6.0 marks and logos, only deciding which image to install the system
07:29-!-jason__ [~jason@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
07:29<valianholt1>so official one is without any Debian 6.0 logos right?

07:30-!-adb [] has joined #debian
07:30<abrotman>valianholt1: you probably don't really want to use testing ..
07:30<abrotman>valianholt1: the period after release is pretty ugly ..
07:31<fLoo>which is the best way to cross compile an x86 kernel on an x64 box ?
07:31<fLoo>i would like to have the same kernel for both architectures
07:32<valianholt1>abrotman: ugly? why? should I stay with stable like 2 months and then switch to testing repos?
07:33<abrotman>valianholt1: depends how much of a mess you can deal with
07:33<fLoo>currently i'm using chroot 32bit debootstrapped 32bit debian inside my amd64 host
07:34-!-horst- [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
07:35<valianholt1>abrotman: well, I want Debian for laptop workstation usage, it needs to be stable enough, but relatively new software, I always thought that testing is the right choice
07:35<iobound>since upgrading from lenny to squeeze, i'm getting errors from dovecot imap: "fchown(/home/someuser/mail/.imap/INBOX/dovecot.index.cache.lock, -1, 8(mail)) failed: Operation not permitted (egid=1001(someuser), group based on /var/mail/someuser)
07:35<abrotman>valianholt1: i'm just telling you that it gets a bit ugly after release
07:36-!-goodhumperdink [] has joined #debian
07:36<iobound>i guess it tries to chgrp the file to match /var/mail/someuser, which is chmod 0660 and chown someuser:mail
07:36<iobound>anyone know how to fix this?
07:36<valianholt1>abrotman: ok, so packages will get better in testing after few months after release? so better to wait a while?
07:36-!-goodhumperdink [] has quit []
07:37<abrotman>valianholt1: it's your call .. there are numerous transitions that happen during the life cycle .. any of those can make a mess
07:37<abrotman>valianholt1: Xorg, python, perl, kernels, kde, gnome, libc .. the list goes on and on
07:38<valianholt1>abrotman: I see, so even recommended migration from stable lenny to stable squeeze is reinstallation of the system, instead of updating?
07:38<abrotman>uhm .. no
07:38<abrotman>i didn't say that
07:39<abrotman>I'm saying that when they change the default python from say .. 2.6 to 3.1 or whatever they do, things may quit working, sometimes in a bad way
07:39<abrotman>at any rate .. do what you think is best for your working environment
07:40<valianholt1>abrotman: ok thx, one more thing, when it is expected to get new testing versions of packages?
07:40<abrotman>valianholt1: probably within a few days, if not sooner

07:40<abrotman>i think last time it was two days .. but not 100% certain
07:41<valianholt1>abrotman: so in the end, if I want to use debian testing, I would probably do better, if I wait these few days, right?
07:41<valdyn>valianholt1: how would that be logical?
07:41<abrotman>valianholt1: the breakages can occur at any time .. it depends on your ability to cope with those breakages

07:44-!-Lethalman [] has joined #debian
07:44<valianholt1>but I thought, with waiting for new testing packages, I would skip breakages, related to updating from older packages, to much newer (as I suppose that in few days, packages will be updated to much newer versions, for these which are in unstable right now)
07:45-!-dominick [~dominick@] has joined #debian
07:45-!-lb [] has left #debian [ - Chat comfortably. Anywhere.]
07:46<valianholt1>because if I understand correctly, unstable is still getting new versions every day, testing also, but it was in freeze last few months, this means to me, that testing will have a BIG update now
07:46<abrotman>valianholt1: not really, unstable is kind of on hold too when testing freezes ..

07:50<valianholt1>abrotman: final question please, just want an advise, from your point of view, when it's the best time to switch from squeeze stable, to wheeze testing? like how many weeks/months after this release?
07:51<valianholt1>abrotman: to have relatively low number of breakages
07:52<abrotman>valianholt1: if you can wait, wait til the freeze, if not, whenever you want
07:52-!-thierry [~thierry@] has joined #debian
07:52<abrotman>and no, i have no idea when the freeze is, but probably at least a year away
07:52<valianholt1>ok thx, have a nice day
07:52<abrotman>you as well
07:52<babilen>valianholt1: Best options IMHO: 1. Run sid OR Use stable OR run stable for 6-12 months, upgrade to testing, wait for stable release, rinse and repeat

07:54<valianholt1>babilen: ah, interesting, so sid is definitely more "stable to use" if I need rolling updated system, than testing?
07:55<Pitxyoki>I think that really depends on what you're willing/capable to cope with.

07:55<Pitxyoki>I've been using testing on this machine for almost 6 years on this machine.
07:55<Pitxyoki>I've had hiccups here and there... But then, I like to report bugs.
07:56<Pitxyoki>If you also like to help, report bugs and help solving them, testing is ok.
07:56<babilen>valianholt1: I did not say that -- It is not and you need more expertise and you need to be aware of what is going on. (Which transitions are taking place, ...) Some DDs argue that users should use either sid or stable. I personally follow the second or third approach.
07:56<abrotman>Pitxyoki: yes, it's dependent on the person .. i'm just warning him that it may get messy
07:57-!-cahoot [] has joined #debian
07:57<valianholt1>Pitxyoki: I see, but nothing like with first update after release, your system didn't boot or so, right?
07:57<valianholt1>I am fine with smaller breakages, but I need to have my system + browser + ssh working mainly, because it's my work computer
07:57<Pitxyoki>I never saw that happen.
07:58<Pitxyoki>This is my work computer too.
07:58<babilen>valianholt1: You will run into problems like this when you run sid
07:58<Pitxyoki>I had X break from time to time, but that was a driver-related issue.
07:58<abrotman>valianholt1: usually it boots, but something like, your network may be wonky, or X might be broken, or your printing system may be gone ....

07:59<Pitxyoki>I tend to be more afraid of stable -> stable upgrades than constant testing usage.
07:59<abrotman>nah, stable dist-upgrades are relatively painless as long as you read the docs

08:50<digifor>Is it possible to encrypt a swap file (not partition)?
08:50<srtu>of course its possible
08:51<digifor>How do you do it? I am finding lots for swap partitions but not for the file.
08:52<digifor>with dm-crypt
08:52<srtu>the easiest way is to encrypt it in the installation process
08:52<srtu>after installtion, on a running mashine, i don't know, but i guess its possible
08:52<srtu>but i am also a n00b, so maybe a advance user here could say how
08:52-!-PeterNL [] has joined #debian
08:53<PeterNL>Hi. my debian system doesn't work with 32mb ram, but it does with 48mb.
08:53<srtu>ah damm sorry digifor, oversee that you encrypt a file, not a partition, so i dont know
08:54<ckk>digifor: use /etc/crypttab (via package cryptsetup)
08:54-!-davi [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:54<digifor> are probably right it would have been easier during setup
08:56<digifor>ckk. I am dual booting with xp on truecrypt sda1 and debian /boot sda2 /sda5 with dmcrypt.
08:56<digifor>Setting up a swapfile is easy enough. Encrypting after the fact seems probematic.
08:57<valdyn>digifor: why dont you put the swap file on the already encrypted partition?
08:57-!-eknahm [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
08:57<ckk>digifor: the following is a skeleton that should do what you want:
08:57<valdyn>digifor: theres not benefit in encrypting twice like that
08:57-!-delby [] has quit [Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.86 [Iceweasel 3.5.16/20110107151845]]
08:58<ckk>oh, didn't notice it was already encrypted. valdyn is right - double encryption won't benefit you at all
08:58<digifor>valdyn, So because it is an encrypted container we won't get leakage?
08:58<valdyn>digifor: leakage?
08:59<valdyn>digifor: what kind of leakage are you imagining?
08:59-!-bricololo [] has left #debian [Quitte]
08:59-!-kagy [] has quit [Quit: kagy]
09:00<digifor>My understanding is that the reason to encrypt the swap file is so that keys don't show up unencrypted in memory.
09:00<valdyn>digifor: but the key will show up unencrypted in memory in any case
09:00-!-exaltis [] has joined #debian
09:01<Pitxyoki>For that you'd have to encrypt all of the memory and not just the swap.
09:01<valdyn>Pitxyoki: and not just that, but the in and output too
09:02<valdyn>Pitxyoki: including your screen display or sound output or *whatever*
09:02<valdyn>thats a ridiculous idea
09:02-!-lampe2 [] has joined #debian
09:02<valdyn>( im sure id never be able to decrypt that screen in my head ;) )
09:03<Pitxyoki>Or just pull the plug.

09:06<valdyn>digifor: but youre using a file on an *already* encrpyted partition, thats silly
09:06<Pitxyoki>So, the problem is if you have an encrypted file that has been read to ram, and then you power off.
09:06<Pitxyoki>And the file will be there.
09:07<digifor>It sounds fairly unnesessary
09:07-!-piccolino [~piccolino@] has joined #debian
09:07<Pitxyoki>So, under an unencrypted setup, an adversary just has to have physical access to the disk to read it.

09:11-!-chgtg [~chg@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:11<Pitxyoki>So, that only applies when your computer is stolen, or your disk is seen from other OSes?
09:11<digifor>And in my case the swapfile is on an already encrypted root partition.
09:11<valdyn>Pitxyoki: root on a running system can always read active swap space, no matter if its encrypted or not
09:11<valdyn>Pitxyoki: sure
09:12<bartm>only with the key of course
09:12<Pitxyoki>hm, if your disk is stolen, one can always boot as root there by fiddling with the passwd file, I suppose.
09:12<Pitxyoki>Well, if the FS is not encrypted, at least.
09:12<Pitxyoki>Sounds kinda paranoid for a "desktop computer at home" setup.
09:12<valdyn>digifor: theres a theoretical "protection" in that encrypted swap does not have reusable keys. But seriously, would you care about swap contents when the whole FS is already readable?
09:13<Pitxyoki>If my PC @ home is stolen I'd be more worried about my belongings than at my PC's swap file.
09:13<Pitxyoki>(I think that's the setup that guy I know has)
09:13<Pitxyoki>On a laptop that might be different.
09:14-!-urban [~urban@] has joined #debian
09:15<ompaul>on a laptop, again the question is what is the value of the data on the machine, if it bank details and other confidential stuff (which I argue should not be on a laptop at all unless it is your only option) then you have an argument to encrypt the data. The down side of this is that a thief will most likely delete the contents of the disk and put something else on it.
09:15<ompaul>so your chances of recovering that machine tend toward zero
09:15<Pitxyoki>A thief will most likely sell the laptop to the first buyer he can find. :|
09:15<valdyn>ompaul: thats why you have backups
09:16<Pitxyoki>And that's why you use BIOS passwords.
09:16-!-Wolf_J [] has left #debian []
09:16<ompaul>valdyn: na I am arguing the point that if you have vulnerable data consider the machine gone 100%, if you use dydns and the data is not too valuable then you might be able to track it etc
09:16<valdyn>Pitxyoki: umm no, bios passwords are useless
09:16<Pitxyoki>And solder the HDD to the laptop.
09:16<ompaul>Pitxyoki: bios passwords are no use
09:16<bartm>a bios password is worthless when the disk is taken out and put into another machine
09:17<ompaul>this is more appropriate to #debian-offtopic
09:17<ompaul>this, as in this conversation.
09:17<bartm>the question was how to encrypt a swap file (not a partition)
09:18-!-Wolf_J [] has joined #debian
09:18<digifor>Thanks for looking into it. I'll do a bit more googling. It will probably end up like this in the country I work in.
09:18<ompaul>if you are that paranoid about it, buy more ram, and turn off all swap, and use a full disk

11:09<fLoo>hello, i'm working with dpkg-buildpackage to build a .deb out of a sourcefile
11:09<fLoo>but i'm getting like 10 packages instead of just one
11:09<s_i_m>edbian, if you want to choose between these two distros, better use other merits.
11:10<Dominus>Hi, when the man pages says see somecommand(2), how do I access that one
11:10<fLoo>is it possible to tell dpkg-buildpackage to generate just _one_ package instead of 10 single packages ?
11:10<edbian>s_i_m, Well I am starting to think of sid as arch with a better package manager (that I don't have to learn)

13:30<vezult>themill: the path on my server includes: '/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.5'
13:30-!-pastubbs [] has joined #debian
13:30<vezult>themill: my laptop does not
13:30<Pitxyoki>If so, install debian using that adapter. When the setup is complete, edit sources.list to include non-free and install the necessary packages.
13:30<babilen>vezult: which path is that?
13:30-!-srbaker [] has joined #debian
13:30<vezult>ballison: sys.path
13:30<Pitxyoki>I think that's the easiest path.

13:33<Pitxyoki>Nice, non-free CDs!
13:33<Pitxyoki>That would have come in handy some years ago.
13:33<vezult>themill: It's definitely coming from /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/python-support.pth
13:33-!-MrPlop__ [~MrPlop@] has joined #debian
13:34<babilen>oOarthurOo: You can download that .deb manually, place it on a USB stick/CD and provide it during the installation. If you install from an USB stick, you can just copy it to the second partition. But the easiest way is just to use a wired connection first for the installation and install it later on.
13:34<themill>vezult: I don't have that file at all on my squeeze machines
13:35<themill>which package owns it? "dpkg -S /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/python-support.pth"
13:35-!-switch [] has joined #debian
13:35<vezult>...which is a symlink to: /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.5/.path
13:35<babilen>vezult: That file is also not present on my machine ..
13:35<oOarthurOo>babilen, I wanted a complete list so that when I install it on friends & family laptops / computers, I can get everything up and running even without access to a hard-wired connection and without knowing in advance what firmware is required.
13:35<vezult>themill: it doesn't seem to be owned by any package
13:35<vezult>so this must be self-inflicted..

13:39<oOarthurOo>Thanks babilen ... though I don't want the testing versions, just stable. I've found stable netinst isos called "firmware-arch-netinst.iso", so I'm curious, If I start the install using DVD1, then apt-cd add the netinst-firmware iso, will I be able to apt-get install the firmware packages on the cd I just added? Or is is build into the installer and not actually packaged in an apt readable/installable format?

14:40<amphi>dpkg: lenny->squeeze
14:40<dpkg>Remove volatile & backports from /etc/apt/sources.list changing lenny to squeeze. Use apt-get for the upgrade: "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get install linux-image-`uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,'` udev". Install firmware-linux-nonfree if needed; check you have a 2.6.32 kernel installed "aptitude search '~nlinux-image~i'" and reboot into it. "apt-get dist-upgrade". READ THE <squeeze release notes>.
14:40<ansgar>lmarcetic: And FWIW Debisn stable is quite usable on desktops as well.
14:40<sney>so you just made a decision based on anecdotal evidence from non-debian sources. good job. I'd recommend a reinstall. current debian 'stable' was just released yesterday so it's not old yet; if you want newish stuff just run stable until testing exists again and update to testing
14:41<daemonkeeper>thank you :o

16:23<lmarcetic>so i've installed a lenny and then did apt-get update, which gave me sid packages, but not exactly sid (what i mean eg. is that sid uses gdm3, and i have the newest gdm2 instead). should i not dist-upgrade because it's risky? :-(
16:23<m0>Why should the user be the one doing that? LSB headers are missing from pwcheck and iptables
16:24<lmarcetic>*actually, perhaps testing uses gdm3 as well. i'm missing the whole transition due to not using dist-upgrade

18:16<themill>jesperj: that website is a web interface to a keyserver. You need to import the keys if you want to be able to check the IDs on the signatures; what you've already done has already verified that it is signed correctly though -- what you are now trying to do is to verify that it has been signed by the right people and that is impossible to do if you are neither in the web of trust yourself nor trust the signatures that are there.

18:25-!-dvs [] has joined #debian
18:25<themill>jesperj: it tells you that you have no trust path from _your_ key to the key that signed the release file. If I were to look at this, I'd find that my key signed moray's key that signed bubulle's key that signed Sledge's key that actually signed the CDs. (and similar paths for each of the signatures on the CD hash). That means that I have a trust path and can be happy.

18:36<themill>jesperj: you've got a mathematical proof that the signature is correct. That's a great start and that's all gpg was able to tell you. Anyone can create a key claiming to be from that address so that's not enough for you to believe the signature... what you could do is verify that the cd key signature was signed by the people who make the CDs. The signatures that you have there are found in the debian-keyring package which is signed by the ftp-
18:36<themill>masters and in turn their signature is on the website with a certificate from SPI

21:55<rpetre>breadtk: there's 3 parts to this: writing, formatting and publishing. the writing part can be done in any text editor, for the formatting you probably want html (either convert your text in it, or write directly if your html-fu is good enough) and publishing might be done in a variety of ways. working in command line means a lot of breaking a task in various subtasks like this
21:55<MichaelAllison>you mean the channel is for the port of debian to GNU/kFreeBSD before the stable release?

22:11<MichaelAllison>well, choosing a Linux distro really comes down to a few things (for ordinary users) in my mind

22:13<MichaelAllison>package management (or lack thereof), installation/configuration time vs. functionality/speed, and random whims based on how cool you think Debian's logo is
22:13<MichaelAllison>I didn't dislike Slackware when I used it, but its lack of depency handling forced me to switch
22:14<MichaelAllison>and otherwise you're just making a decision as to whether you prefer a highly functional and fast system, or you prefer to not dedicate much time to learning how to effect a functional/fast system
22:15<MichaelAllison>kind of like choosing between managed or unmanaged programming languages?
22:15<rpetre>MichaelAllison: i've been using debian for the last 8 years or so (from around woody release, i think) and from time to time i feel embittered, try something else, and come back fast thinking "how can they live with themselves"
22:15<dpkg>#debian is primarily a support channel for Debian users. Please keep the discussions in #debian on-topic and take longer discussions and non-support questions to #debian-offtopic. Imagine the chaos if each of the hundreds of people in the channel felt the need to wander off topic for a few minutes every day.
22:15<rpetre>babilen: sorry, got carried away ;)
22:15<MichaelAllison>babilen: what rpetre said
22:15*babilen just tried to read the backlog and ... well :)
22:16<babilen>but feel free to continue in -ot :)
22:16<flaccid>lol putting slackware in that convo is pretty bad. apples and oranges :)
22:16<Habstinat>Any reason I should be getting this, and is there anything I can do to fix it? (Lenny)

22:18-!-marnold [~marnold@] has joined #debian
22:19<Habstinat>rpetre: That should have nothing to do with it, because I can do any other root task using sudo, and even though I get that error every time it still works.
22:19<rpetre>Habstinat: use an IP address instead of 'habs-desktop' in the sudoers file
22:20<rpetre>well, maybe you also have some rule that allows ALL hosts
22:20<Habstinat>rpetre: But assuming my sudo is fine and that wasn't the problem, how could I fix that?
22:20<rpetre>it's a sudo error, i can't assume it's fine :)
22:20-!-gamamb [] has joined #debian

22:24<rpetre>dhcpd also has a flag that syntax-checks the config file. -t or -T , i believe.
22:24<rpetre>-t is for the config

22:29<engine64>hello experts, i'm trying a program that will prompt for a filename and writes it to the file then open the file for reading consequently writes the file name to the screen five times. i'm looking at fscanf or scanf. Here is the code, I wonder if you can help me check thanks!
22:29<dpkg>extra, extra, read all about it, homework is something you should do yourself.

23:13<flaccid>Guest141: debian isn't written in anything particular as its userland plus the modified kernel. #debian-mentors if you are packaging for debian etc.
23:14<babilen>The linux kernel is written in C -- The rest uses every programming language in exeistence (maybe not brainfuck, but *a lot*)

23:16<flaccid>Guest141: the simple answer, Packaging and porting
23:17<Guest536>ah, i see
23:17<dpkg>The New Maintainer's Guide (, Developer's Reference and Policy document how packages should be made and how they should interact with each other. Ask me about <package basics>, <mentors>, <policy>, <best practices> or see ,
23:17<babilen>Guest536: Have a look at ^^^ if you want to see what "packaging" is about

23:37<sret>but i'd like to list the rejected hosts though before i can
23:37<rpetre>sret: look at the output of 'ip route show' and look for what route you want out
23:38<sret>worked thanks rpetre
23:38<sret>so its iproute and not just route from the looks of it
23:38-!-tuxwarri1r [~ulises@] has quit [Quit: leaving]
23:38<rpetre>route is the older tool
23:38<sret>right i was using route instead of ip route
23:39-!-mode/#debian [+l 465] by debhelper
23:39<rpetre>ip is supposed to be the one to use, since it knows more tricks
23:39-!-afurlan [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:39<rpetre>most of stuff can be done with route too, only the syntax is different
23:40<sret>ah when you reject a host its not neceessarily blocking traffic from it like iptables is it?
23:40-!-Arrowmaster [] has joined #debian
23:41<rpetre>it basically tells the routing algorithm that that particular host/network is unreachable, so don't even try to route packages
23:41-!-Jussi [] has joined #debian
23:41<rpetre>what's the specific route you talk about?
23:41<sret>does it block traffic or its better to use iptables here to block any and all traffic from the ip?
23:42<rpetre>it doesn't block traffic _from_ the ip, instead it doesn't send traffic _to_ it
23:42-!-KevinCL [~kevin@] has joined #debian
23:42<sret>basically i wanted to drop all dropping all traffic from a particular ip, would using ip route be better here or iptables?
23:42<sret>ohh rpetre ok so OUTBOUND
23:42<rpetre>basically yeah, only that you work with the routing decision

23:43-!-CGL [~CGL@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:43<sret>thanks for clarifying dude
23:43<rpetre>routing tells the kernel which interface and host it should send the packets for a particular destination to
23:43<sret>i should use iptables then to block inbound
23:43-!-taffit__ is now known as taffit
