00:20<apet4u>how do i activate it?
00:21-!-lostinfog [] has quit []
00:21<apet4u>or even see if its there
00:22<sney>well, first verify what linux sees it as. do the command 'lspci -vv |grep -i net' in a terminal and tell us what it says
00:24<sney>also do 'lsmod |grep ath' and see if anything comes up
00:24<sney>if everything is normal, that second one should show you a bunch of entries related to ath5k
00:24<apet4u>ath5k 112242 0 mac80211 137340 1 ath5k ath 8006 1 ath5k cfg80211 101496 3 ath5k,mac80211,ath led_class 2433 3 ath5k,acer_wmi,sdhci
00:25<sney>yeah, that's what mine shows as well. so odds are, you've just got a configuration problem
00:25<apet4u>that was for the lsmod |grep ath
00:25<sney>yeah, I know
00:25<apet4u>ok m very new to linux and have no idea
00:25<apet4u>so how can i reconfigure it to work?

00:26-!-M1stFu [] has joined #debian
00:27<sney>if anything on that page is confusing it can generally be googled
00:27<apet4u>ok thank ya much
00:28<Vnuchaev>hello! I have a VDS with Debian 5.0. Need to install mpd (Music Player Daemon), it is in repositories, but without mp3 encoder support. Is it possible to install it from another repositories? How to include them?
00:28<dpkg>from memory, dmm is Debian Multimedia is a repository of unofficial packages maintained by Christian Marillat, not in Debian for patent-related reasons. For information on how to access, see or ask me about <dmm squeeze> <dmm lenny>. During 2010, this repository grew a non-free part, with all binary-only packages moved there; you may need to add " non-free" to your sources lines. See also <dmm mirrors>, <dmm list>.
00:30<Vnuchaev>!dmm lenny
00:30<dpkg>dmm lenny is probably Following the squeeze release, the repository for lenny was lost and will not be restored. Ask me about <lenny->squeeze>.
00:31<Vnuchaev>what does it mean? I can't use this repository on lenny?
00:31<sney>oh, hmm. that's a bummer
00:31<sney>no, you can't, because the maintainer broke it :( one of the risks of using 3rd party repositories
00:33<sney>Vnuchaev: do /msg dpkg lenny->squeeze
00:33<sney>it's better to just talk to the bot directly
00:34<Vnuchaev>do /msg dpkg lenny->squeeze
00:34-!-Piet_ [] has joined #debian
00:35<Vnuchaev>it does not answer
00:36-!-arn [] has joined #debian
00:36<Vnuchaev>have sent /msg dpkg lenny->squeeze
00:37<sney>worked for me
00:37<sney>dpkg: lenny->squeeze
00:37<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>.
00:37-!-apet4u [] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]
00:37<sney>this would update your Debian install from 5 to 6, so do some research to make sure it won't break anything that you need

06:47<rigved>hi everyone...i am on Debian Squeeze. i want to set up a netboot server. so, when a client machine on this network starts up (using netboot in the BIOS), the server should send an image to the client machine. the client machine should load this image and boot into it. can anyone tell me how to set up this server? even if you can point me to the right resources, that will also be fine.
06:48<bartm>rigved, I think that there's an "howto" about this somewhere
06:49<bartm>rigved, maybe this helps ?
06:49<rigved>bartm, ok. so the netboot image provided on the debian website in the download section (along with the netinst) is different, right?
06:49<rigved>bartm, ok. i will check that out. thanks

08:02<SynrG>i mean, it sounds like something else set the network up for you, not NM
08:02<ottoshmidt>probably yes
08:02<ottoshmidt>I used to set the network that way
08:02<SynrG>so, check for a wlan0 stanza in /etc/network/interfaces, for starters (although i thought in that case, the NM applet clearly said "not managed")
08:03<SynrG>NM does not want to manage the network unless your wlan0 stanza is removed from that file

09:42<mystery>Hey question how hard is it to install squeeze on a system with nvidia raid?
09:44<cthuluh>nvidia raid sounds like bios-assisted raid, hence it would be wiser to use software raid
09:44<mystery>So dmraid?

09:47<mystery>Actually it is a Packard Bell. Intel inside, dual core with nvidia raid. Tried installing Ubuntu on it last year. Live CD saw the drive, but the installer didn't.
09:47<@Ganneff>nvidia raid is shit. dont use it, do it with software raid
09:48<@Ganneff>much better
09:48<dpkg>[fakeraid] a term used for controller cards that advertise RAID functionality that is NOT supported by a hardware chip for parity. Most of these have only a BIOS. For use with Debian systems, it is suggested that you do not set a RAID in the BIOS and don't use dmraid, just use regular software RAID instead; ask me about <md>.
09:49<@Ganneff>!software raid
09:49<dpkg>"Multidisk Device" (MD) is commonly used to describe the software <RAID> facilities available in the Linux kernel. This means you can RAID with any disks, with no need for a special (read winmodem) hardware controller. To establish at Debian installation time, see section of the <install guide>. See also <mdadm>.

10:25<sznitzeln>and my partitions are probably not set up in a good way either
10:26<sznitzeln>but i just wonder...
10:26<sznitzeln>is the problem caused by possible incompatibility with my hardware, or could i ahve messed up the installation?
10:26<sznitzeln>i did the following: ctrl + alt + f1 to "shut down X" i hope that si correct
10:26<sznitzeln>then i typed su

10:37<sznitzeln>ok i have another completely unrelated question... if i have a 1TB harddrive and want to dualboot debian/windows, could you recommend any partitioning scheme? is / 30GB ext4, swap 2-3GB, /home 750GB ext4, /drive_c 200GB NTFS a good choice?
10:37<rigved>cast93, np. you are welcome
10:38<sznitzeln>is NTFS the best way of having a partition that is both compatible with windows and linux?
10:38<sicksadworld>the say that you can edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst, but it's doesnt exist no more in squeeze...
10:38<sznitzeln>and if i create NTFS in linux, does it work for windows?
10:38<devil>sznitzeln: i would prefer fat32
10:39<sznitzeln>devil, ok.. why?

10:39-!-artista_frustrado [~artista_f@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:39<rigved>sznitzeln, you can use ntfs with both windows and linux but create the ntfs partition in windows, as the ntfs drivers of windows are better
10:39<devil>sznitzeln: because its easier and safer. no need for ntfs-3g etc
10:40<sznitzeln>devil, actually, i might want to transfer a whole lot of data from my previous windows machines... do you think i should have a big ntfs/fat32 partition instead and a much smaller /home partition?
10:40<fnmueller>sznitzeln: define best. The ext3 driver for windows work quite well too. I would always use a native way to the most used OS
10:40-!-rage [] has quit [Quit: Quitte]

10:40<sicksadworld>bartm: i dont know how to report

10:41<devil>SynrG: it seems by now it is quite safe. i would still prefer fat32 or even ext3

10:41-!-cinix [] has left #debian []
10:41<sznitzeln>preferably only for playing starcraft 2 :)
10:42<SynrG>devil: i think using a less-preferred filesystem for windows out of paranoia is going to make your windows experience suck more
10:42<rigved>sznitzeln, i'm sure you will will be successful in your goal! ;)
10:42<SynrG>at little to no benefit, that i can see
10:42<SynrG>from what i understand, ntfs is journalling and fat32 isn't ...
10:43<SynrG>so if i *had* to use windows, i'd prefer a journalling filesystem over a non-journalling
10:43<SynrG>especially given (in my experience) windows' tendency to suddenly and inexplicably develop problems that are totally opaque to me :/
10:43<fnmueller>sznitzeln: well, in that case only install linux and keep an virtual windows if you really need it
10:43<sznitzeln>ok, so if i have say movies or mp3 files stored in ntfs, can i only copy them unto a ntfs drive on my new computer or can i write them to a ext4 drive also?
10:44<sznitzeln>fnmueller, that sounds appealing
10:44<quidman>Seems to be something corrupt in my KDE setup (other people accounts work fine)
10:44<sznitzeln>fnmueller, do you think playing games on a virtual windows will suck really hard?
10:44<SynrG>if you're truly paranoid about ntfs corruption by linux writing, set up windows with two partitions, one for the system (ntfs) and another for transfer of data between systems (fat32)
10:45<SynrG>but i really don't see the need
10:45-!-magnetic__ [] has joined #debian
10:45<fnmueller>sznitzeln: data are independent from filesystems if you plan on copying those. And yes, I believe windows games will really suck hard

10:46-!-jwkokc [] has joined #debian
10:46<sznitzeln>SynrG, this is waht i am really worried about: if i make a really big partition with NTFS or fat32, that will leave less space for /home, and it seems in linux default download folders and such things go under /home
10:46<fnmueller>sznitzeln: however, I have no experience in that question really, if I play at all, it is torcs or xmoto and very rarely wolfenstein enemy territory. All of those are native to linux
10:47-!-ilias [~ilias__@] has joined #debian
10:47<sznitzeln>and thus i risk /home being overfilled by some program i dont have control over, or if i am not attentive enough
10:47<SynrG>that's what the reserved blocks are for
10:48<SynrG>so that at least root will have that overdraught to dip into if it fills up
10:48<SynrG>then you cleanup, and life continues
10:48<sznitzeln>fnmueller, what do you mean data are independent? i can copy a movie to any filesystem and it will run?
10:48<SynrG>you'll find a lot of data is disposable :)
10:48<fnmueller>sznitzeln: yes
10:48<sznitzeln>so what would you say is a minimum size for /home?
10:49<SynrG>there is no good answer
10:49<SynrG>it depends on usage habits
10:49<bartm>sznitzeln, entirely depends on the users of /home
10:49<SynrG>worst case, say you choose incorrectly ...

10:51<sznitzeln>ok lets say like this: most of my hdd is occupied by movie files... i need one partition for windows+starcraft+a little more, is there any advantage/disadvantage to putting movies into /home (ext4) over putting them in the windows partition?
10:51<SynrG>i wouldn't worry about /home so much. decide how much the system needs for each OS ...
10:51<SynrG>throw all of the rest into /home
10:51<sznitzeln>ok sounds nice
10:51-!-ilias [~ilias__@] has joined #debian
10:51<sznitzeln>and what file system would you have for /home?
10:51<jwkokc>sznitzeln, on my main production system, the hd is 500 GB and I partitioned it with almost all of the space going to /home. it has six virtual machines defined, to run Windows virtual machines, all in a subdirectory of /home, and still has well over 250 GB free in /home.
10:52<ompaul>sznitzeln: ext4
10:52<SynrG>if you want movies accessible on Windows, you'll want something other than ext4 to put them on, i think

10:53<SynrG>case study: my daughter has a thinkpad for university. she retained windows for a few windows-only programs. it gradually fell into disuse, as she relied on linux for movies and web and schoolwork, and windows only for a game ... that she never had time to play anyway,
10:53<ompaul>sznitzeln: it is a good replacement for windows this debian thing, the main feature you need to consider is that it is like changing cars, the indicator and light switches may change but you can get your travelling done
10:53<SynrG>when we upgraded her laptop, she tossed windows entirely.
10:54-!-fsdqtrcbn [~quassel@] has joined #debian
10:54<sznitzeln>that story fits me too i guess, i want to change cars and i only want windows for a game that i will have limited time to play
10:54<ompaul>sznitzeln: I have had no problems and it is faster on fsck than ext3 you won't as a human notice speed differences of fs's

13:47<sahko>DE = WM + cruft
13:47<jhutchins>A window manager manages the drawing and placement of windows on the desktop. It usually supplies the buttons that are on the window frame and handles moving, resizing, minimizing, closing, window-shading and things like that.

13:49<Tiff>DE is a suite of tools.

14:07<juhaj>bartm: As if that would help... The problem is cache which does not get freed no matter how much a program needs memory. If I try to use a couple of hundred MB of memory with two programs, they keep getting swapped in and out instead of the kernel letting some of its disk cache go. The question is why?
14:08<juhaj>Even swappiness = 0 and echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches have no effect

14:17<juhaj>ompaul: From "free", there is over 700 MB of free momeory, most of that in the disc cache. But the kernel refuses to reduce the cache, instead swaps in/out all the time. The usability of the machine is ~0 with X, IceWeasel and two instances of python running (these pythons are the ones swapping in/out). Obviously there are all kinds of ther stuff, like dbus etc in the background, but they consume little memory.

14:18<juhaj>acu: No. None of those tell me why the kernel refuses to reduce the cache. With swappiness set to zero, it should prefer reducing the cache over swapping, but it does not.

14:26<juhaj>valdyn: Excessive swapping even with swappiness=0; if I start two python's who take 100MB both, they start being swapped in/out continously. Same happens with aobut any program I start
14:26-!-phoenix [] has joined #debian
14:26<bluenemo>SynrG, PS1?
14:26<SynrG>the variable containing the pattern to produce the shell prompt
14:26<SynrG>er, format string, that is
14:26<acu>juhaj: make it easy for us - just go to GNOME - Applications -System Tools - Systme monitor - and click on Memory (so it sorts by the memory use) then do a CTRL+PrntScrn and paste it
14:26<SynrG>(it occurred to me as another possible answer for your vaguely formulated question)
14:27<valdyn>juhaj: maybe its not really 100mb, maybe you hit a very serious bug
14:27<bluenemo>wow i dont quite get the output of echo PS1 but you answered my question fine, sry for not being accurate
14:27<ompaul>in which case a newer sid kernel might be good
14:27<acu>exactly so - he needs first to see what it "eating" the memory
14:28<SynrG>bluenemo: "a glob $" (the thing the globlly defines the "$" prompt string) "... for lxterminal, etc."
14:28<juhaj>acu: I do not have gnome. I cannot run it, there is not enough memory for it. It just causes lots of swapping! Same applies to ~all programs. I do not have htop installed, so you'll have to live with top output since installing htop would freeze the machine for ~15 minutes.
14:28<valdyn>juhaj: i would like to see the output for top or similar before anything else
14:28<bluenemo>SynrG, ah ok i c, thank you :)
14:28<SynrG>bluenemo: anyway, you can use x-terminal-emulator with update-alternatives to change the default if that's what you were driving at

14:31<metalfreak>I'm looking at the Security issues page and it says to add deb squeeze/updates main contrib non-free to /etc/apt/sources.list which makes sense but I'm wondering why the security updates are non-free?
14:31<acu>juhaj: for experimentation - I would strongly recommend you to learn virtualization (kvm perhaps) and run your unstable machines so you can clone them easily - and discard the nonfunctional ones )
14:31<juhaj>ompaul: Well, I will give you peacemeal, but I really tried to ask a question: how to figure out why it does not release the cache. I did not phrase it correctly, though, I admit that.
14:31<juhaj>valdyn, acu: Do you want top output memory or cpu sorted?

14:38<valdyn>juhaj: what cache?
14:38<juhaj>valdyn: No, I do not have "a" program which does that. *ANY* program does that
14:38<juhaj>valdyn: Kernel disk cache
14:38<valdyn>juhaj: it will never be freed when the system is not loaded
14:38<valdyn>juhaj: the only way to free the cache is explicitely doing it or deleting the cached file
14:39<acu>juhaj: I have almost no doubt that is the ZOMBIE program which causes this - I just did not find it in the list - but on the very top it tells you that 1 Zombie is there = if you could sort by memory - I think that will be the top
14:39<juhaj>valdyn: Please read what I write: if I start program(s) which need the memory, the start thrashing because the cache does not get freed. Even though there is load. Even though swappiness==0 and echoing 3 to drop_caches does not reduce the cache either (except by a fer megabytes)
14:39<acu>juhaj: then you kill it :)

15:19<linuxxx>s_i_m, sorry im little confused its not possible to start x without gdm or kdm?
15:20<valdyn>linuxxx: thats programs that show a login screen
15:20<valdyn>linuxxx: but you can start X with the command "startx" too
15:20<amphi>linuxxx: you can start X with, er, startx
15:21<valdyn>juhaj: read:
15:21<linuxxx>is there any way that startx command is executed at startup?
15:21<valdyn>linuxxx: no
15:21<valdyn>linuxxx: thats a stupid idea, because gdm is made for this
15:22<linuxxx>but gdm is a login manager no?
15:22<linuxxx>i only have one user

16:19<s_i_m>nr9nb9no9, AFAIK, current apt and aptitude only differ with respect to the database of the packages on hold.
16:20<s_i_m>if you do not have such, than you may use both.
16:20<nr9nb9no9>is it just as simple as using kate--replacing every instance of 'lenny' with 'squeeze' ?
16:21<s_i_m>yes, if your configuration is simple (no pinning, etc)
16:21<nr9nb9no9>yass no pinning
16:21<dpkg>apt-get is a program (part of the apt package) used as a simple command line tool to libapt. apt-get is the original frontend for <apt> but <aptitude> is now the recommended tool for managing packages. See also <why aptitude>, <reference>, <synaptic>, <apt-cache>, <gdebi>.

16:49<babilen>nr9nb9no9: checkinstall, i just mentioned it
16:50<babilen>but there is no point in making this problem even more complex. There are three options: 1. Use "make uninstall" (or whatever mono uses) 2. make install again and create list of installed files 3. Backups
16:50*babilen recommends 1. or 3. :)
16:51<meebey>or 4) use debian packages

16:59<nr9nb9no9>mono is some nonfree thing for multimedia?
16:59<babilen>D3M0N: wonderful.
16:59<meebey>so you found the build dir, that sounds promising then
16:59<D3M0N>yes, i think i did ;P
16:59<meebey>nr9nb9no9: nope, its a language framework like python or java
16:59<babilen>nr9nb9no9: Mono is a linux implementation of the .NET platform
16:59<linuxxx>to get menus at fluxbox i have to install menu package?
17:00<babilen>linuxxx: Which menu package? And the answer to your question is no AFAIK
17:00<babilen>linuxxx: What menus are you referring to?
17:00<mock>does anyone know anything about procps?
17:00<D3M0N>once this is done removing all these files then i will inform u if it worked ;P
17:00<linuxxx>babilen, a menu like gnome
17:00<linuxxx>babilen, where there is applicactions and that
17:00<nr9nb9no9>ah! so its direct from the great satan of redmond itself?
17:01<babilen>linuxxx: You could right-click on the desktop to get a "menu"
17:01<linuxxx>babilen, i tried but it doesn't work
17:01<linuxxx>babilen, but i think the problem is that right click doesn't work well i will loke at it
17:01<babilen>nr9nb9no9: If you want to see it like this, then yes. But you shouldn't think about it that way IMHO
17:02<meebey>nr9nb9no9: no, its like linux which is a clone of proprietary unix
17:03<valdyn>more "implementation of the posix standard api"
17:04<babilen>linuxxx: What do you want? fluxbox doesn't have panels out of the box (things like this: -- You might want to read its documentaion or as in #fluxbox on

17:07<babilen>wakka: What does it mean for a .tcl script to have fsck?
17:07<D3M0N>well, i guess this mist be doing something good, taking a while :P
17:07<valdyn>wakka: you already have fsck
17:07<wakka>babilen: its for a eggdrop .tcl script
17:08<wakka>valdyn: [23:02:34] can't find package fsck 1.10
17:08<valdyn>wakka: isnt eggdrop an irc thing?
17:08<jhutchins>wakka: Part of e2fstools
17:08<babilen>wakka: fsck (as in e2fsck) should already be available on your system. What does it mean for a .tcl to have fsck?

17:12<D3M0N>whichever the latest is, i believe its 2.8.2?
17:12<babilen>D3M0N: You might also want to remove that /mono2.6.7 directory or move it somewhere else.

18:06<sney>also, I suspect that many users nowadays are too young to remember lorena bobbitt. good thing we have wikipedia.

20:23<Soviet^>i dont thind i would be able to install any other version
20:23<kop>Soviet^: You can run that, but the software is very old, and won't be supported in one years time.
20:23<Soviet^>eh fine with me
20:23<kop>Soviet^: But, you don't have to re-install, you can upgrade. (Although frankly if you're on dialup a re-install might be eaiser.)

21:33<i10neorg>I would guess there's nothing very Debian about it, apart from putting your apache2 virtual host directives in their own file under /etc/apache2/sites-available , and then using "sudo a2ensite" to setup the symlink from /etc/apache2/sites-enabled .
21:33<i10neorg>But the actual content of the file should be straight apache2 docs (not Debian specific).

22:05<i10neorg>supness08: The Debian packages aren't adequate?
22:06<costas>tried the wine documentation?
22:06<supness08>well, i was told by someone here a few days ago that compiling wine was more stable than apt-get

22:06<supness08>im kinda new, so im sorry if my terms are incorrect
22:06<costas>well.... he was right, but if you're new, stick with the synaptic...
22:07<ml|_>the debian version is fine
22:07<costas>if you compile it from sources, you tailor it to your system.....
22:07<supness08>and yes, i tried the wine documents
22:07<costas>but I always suggest the debian version from synaptic...
22:07<supness08>what is the 'synaptic?'
22:07<i10neorg>Another option is to down load and "experimental" debian package. If you check the debian wine package page <>, you can see the "exp" version is more recent.
22:08<costas>System/administration/synaptic package manager.....
22:08<ml|_>never a good idea mixing debian releases, especially from experimental
22:08<costas>experimental, means non stable...
22:09<costas>stick with stable....
22:09<MrA>Today would have wished back to use alsaconf again in 6.0
22:09<i10neorg>He already said the stable version of wine wasn't for him.
22:09<ml|_>supness08: try ...
22:09<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>.

22:56<DennisTheTiger>Best advice I can think of is don't worry too much about it - reinstall afterwards if you're following the !tell I shot you.

22:59<costas>aptitude is fine but synaptic gets you more info if you're new to linux (you don't really need to install all 8000 and more packages)
23:00<DennisTheTiger>jazzkutya: my experience is that it will still do the same thing.
23:00-!-m42_ [] has joined #debian
23:00<ml|_>supness08: you will still need to use apt-get for certain things, since aptitude cannot do everything apt-get can do ATM
23:00<DennisTheTiger>jazzkutya: Figure that if you're doing a dist-upgrade, it is going to require some supervision.
23:01<DennisTheTiger>supness08: Like, for instance, apt-get has super cow powers.
23:01<jazzkutya>okay then one negative mark for debian "stable"

23:03<jazzkutya>but I've started with squeeze about a week ago and I don't see why would it do this
23:03<jazzkutya>no upgrade from one major version to other
23:03-!-clocker [] has joined #debian
23:03<costas>back in the days we used just terminals when startx crashed.... and had to use nano and experiment.... these were the days
23:04<jazzkutya>(i am not sure I understand what you say about sarge->etch)
23:04<costas>no internet connection, just paper and persistence
23:04<jazzkutya>back in the days I used slackware
23:04<jazzkutya>then ubuntu came and made me lazy :)
23:04<DennisTheTiger>jazzkutya: Consider this - "stable" pretty much means that the installed operating system works. It does not mean, nor should it imply, that a major update will not do strange things. And to note, I've been using Debian since Sarge - which was the stable version in 2005.
23:04<sney>costas: word, most of my debian self-education was on a PowerPC 8500 running Potato
23:05<DennisTheTiger>jazzkutya: And this said, you're not in Slackware anymore. =)
23:05<costas>slack ruled. Ubuntu makes me wanna through my soundcard on the head of the alsa team...
23:05<DennisTheTiger>(gods, I hated slack.)
23:05<jazzkutya>DennisTheTiger: yup but that could change... or I may try gentoo next (if I will try anything else)
23:05<DennisTheTiger>jazzkutya: Your prerogative.
23:05<sney>slackware was alright in the 2.4 days, provided you didn't mind building anything you wanted to install from source, and all the deps
23:06<costas>I tried everything, but debian is the root of all evil, so I always keep it on my computers
23:06<DennisTheTiger>sney: that's why I hated slack. Dependency hell. Stuck it out with OS/2 or DOS until I found...well, ok, back then I went to Mandrake.

23:07<costas>thanks for the beer, got to check my exes on facebook (what a waste on time that facebook...)
23:08<sney>anyway. running things out of proposed-updates is going to be our new testing-unstable mix, I think
23:08<DennisTheTiger>costas: Feh, I just ignore The Ex. All she is doing is playing The Sims. =/
23:08<sney>any instability is inherent in using software not yet determined to be 'stable'
23:09<costas>did you know facebook tries to give you viruses via chat in the form of executables?
23:09<DennisTheTiger>sney: Hey, you know if there's a timeframe to get libreoffice into backports for squeeze?
23:09<sney>DennisTheTiger: no idea, sorry. I do know it's in the works. the maintainers would be the ones to know
23:09-!-grillo [~grillo@] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
23:10<costas>dunno either DennisTheTiger
23:10<DennisTheTiger>sney: groovy, might just see if I can deb-src from sid in the meantime - though sid makes me a wee bit nervous....
23:10<sney>if you're doing ssb there's not much to worry about

23:11<DennisTheTiger>sney: Noted. Adding...
23:12<jazzkutya>DennisTheTiger: btw I'd rather call debian a dependency hell. with slackware you get a base OS with cleaner borders and if any special app just compiles from source or not is slack is too old :)

23:18<costas>I miss the years I spent in Canada, greece nowadays is too shity to live decently...
23:18<jazzkutya>should it be reported somewhere, that an upgrade from proposed-updates rendered konsole uninstallable?
23:18<costas>sorry about the chattery people
23:19<jazzkutya>and probably most of kde but I am not sure 'coz not using kde
23:19<costas>jazzkutya, yes, the proper way is bug report
23:19<sney>DennisTheTiger: no, that only exists for stable
23:19<DennisTheTiger>sney: Got it, thanks. Don't mind me, I'm unfamiliar with sid in general - if only because I "have to ask". =D
23:20<costas>let's see if the dist-upgrade gets in time with my job....

23:22<DennisTheTiger>...aaaand no source package for libreoffice. Bugger all
23:23<costas>not enough volunteers to maintain good packages DennisTheTiger
23:23<sney>maybe it could be uupdated into openoffice
23:23<costas>gwhere is one hellava good one though
23:23<sney>the source structure is probably (?) the same

23:24<DennisTheTiger>Thanks! =D
23:24<DennisTheTiger>What's gwhere?
23:25<DennisTheTiger>sney: Not likely - from what I gather, the fork was because the devs didn't like Oracle.
23:25<DennisTheTiger>Or rather, what they were doing to OSS.
23:25<costas>too much pizza will kill me.... thanks to my martial arts training I'd be ok tomorrow...
23:25<costas>gwhere is a CD/DVD catalogue app...
23:25<sney>DennisTheTiger: yeah, but it's a fork. typically they leave the dirs where they are
23:25<sney>so uupdate might be able to handle it, I dunno
23:25<DennisTheTiger>sney: Indeed
23:25<DennisTheTiger>...ooh, I think I found something.
23:26<sney>or you could always just build in independently and use stow
23:26<costas>used to install all debian apps just to test ride them...
23:27<sney>Nobody likes Oracle, by the way. I wonder what Murdock is doing these days
23:27<costas>then custom tailor the kernel naked from all the extras and run full speed
