00:00<kenyon>there's the problem
00:00-!-grrrrrr [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
00:00<_pg_>the path is file:///opt/piratebox/piratebox/init.d/piratebox/piratebox
00:00<_pg_>omg so confusing
00:01<_pg_>i dont understand how the symlink worked if the file path is wring
00:01<kenyon>there shouldn't be a /opt/piratebox/piratebox/init.d/piratebox/ directory according to the instructions
00:01<scinl>I still can't seem to get port 8333 to report that it's open, and have configured my NAT router (WRT120) to accept incoming/outgoing 8333 on internal/external IP.. Using the following command and have tried both --sport and --dport: iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp --sport 8333 -m state --state ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
00:01<kenyon>_pg_: ln will make the symlink regardless of whether the destination exists
00:01<_pg_>kenyon, it is just one too many piratebox directories?
00:02<kenyon>_pg_: what is in /opt/piratebox/piratebox/init.d/piratebox/? ls -l /opt/piratebox/piratebox/init.d/piratebox/
00:02<kenyon>scinl: what do mean "report that it's open"?
00:03<kenyon>scinl: is your router running linux?
00:03-!-Tony18 [] has joined #debian
00:03-!-Tony18 [] has left #debian []
00:03<_pg_>not a directory- that last instrance of piratebox is the script that starts it/ the one thats supposed to be symlinked
00:03<kenyon>_pg_: maybe you just made a typo when making that symlink
00:04<_pg_>i copied and pasted it
00:04-!-andres is now known as zz_andres
00:04<_pg_>can i just get rid of one level of piratebox foldfers?
00:05<_pg_>like opt>pb>pb>init.d ----> opt?pb/init.d
00:05<kenyon>_pg_: why would you mess with the distribution as it was given? presumably the tarball you downloaded is correct
00:05<_pg_>cause its not working
00:05<kenyon>_pg_: pastebin the output of ls -lR /opt/piratebox
00:08<kenyon>_pg_: yeah, looks like you unpacked the tarball wrong. you should get rid of that initial piratebox directory

00:16<iXuta>I download and write debian-508-amd64-xfce+lxde-CD-1.iso with unetbootin. Can I install it this way? Debian installer claims that cd drive was not detected...
00:16-!-chl501 [~clin@] has joined #debian
00:17<sney>yes, it can be written directly to a usb drive
00:18-!-ncgs [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:18<scinl>iXuta: Maybe in BIOS, have it set to boot from USB-HDD rather than USB-CDROM or USB-Floppy?
00:21<iXuta>it boot from usb flash. problem occur during installation, debian installer try to detect cd and cancel installation then.
00:22-!-blue [] has joined #debian
00:22-!-Metool [] has joined #debian
00:23<iXuta>i guess that "normal" cd images do not fit for usb installation

00:24-!-Holborn [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
00:24<th>AFAIK the image is a hybrid, can be written to CD or USB drive
00:24<iXuta>debian-508-amd64-xfce+lxde-CD-1.iso ?
00:25<ayaka>jm_thank you
00:25<sney>oh 508
00:25<th>no, not that one but the main one (with GNOME as default desktop)
00:25<sney>no, iXuta only the 6.0x images can be written to usb drives
00:25<th>ah, lenny
00:26<Hydroxide>there are USB images for lenny, but not the same files as the iso versions
00:26<sney>yeah and they might not have stayed compatible with the boot.img
00:26<th>is there any particular reason for choosing lenny instead of the current stable (squeeze)?
00:26<Hydroxide>but, unless you have a specific reason, you don't want to install lenny now since it will lose security support some time next year
00:26<Hydroxide>probably around february
00:27<iXuta>i don't wanna care about updates
00:28<Hydroxide>iXuta: if you don't want to be endangered in terms of security, you'll have to care about updates for any version of any operating system connected to the Internet, whether Debian or not. if you mean you want debian to prepare the updates for you and make it easy to stay secure without a major version upgrade, that will be true longer for squeeze than for lenny.
00:28-!-peterS [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:28<chl501>In addition to rkhunter and chrootkit, are there any other ways to detect if my machines are compromised or infected?
00:29-!-_pg_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:30<Hydroxide>chl501: there's no comprehensive way that will catch all problems and never give a false alarm, even those two tools. this is also true on every OS, Debian or not. you can run things like clamav if you want an antivirus, but the best thing is to keep an eye on what your machine is doing and logging and see if anything's suspicious and unexplainable
00:31<Hydroxide>chl501: tools like those are useful but not as your entire security strategy. also do things like choosing good passwords, locking your screen when stepping away in a public place, not directly logging in as root, etc.
00:32<chl501>Hydroxide: what alarming should I look at when checking e.g. syslog?
00:32<sney>if you inherit a system and you suspect it may have been compromised in the past, back up the data and reinstall. it's the only way to be safe.
00:32<Hydroxide>chl501: it depends on what's normal for your system. /var/log/syslog and /var/log/auth.log are some relevant log files. But, yeah, listen to what sney said. Certainly a compromised system can also have compromised logging, and often does if the malware author is smart.
00:35<chl501>Ok. Thanks. : )
00:36-!-yanli [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:36<iXuta>>no, not that one but the main one (with GNOME as default desktop)
00:36<iXuta>>no, iXuta only the 6.0x images can be written to usb drives
00:36<iXuta>Can install using debian-6.0.1a-amd64-xfce+lxde-CD-1.iso ?
00:36<iXuta>I don't like GNOME

02:08<chealer>this happened on my laptop shortly after I left it idle. ata5 must be my root partition (which is /dev/sda5)

02:19<chealer>jm_: no, but I can't think of what it would be. there was no disk in the ODD and I wasn't using the system. I came back to a completely knocked out system (wouldn't switch to a tty). all applications seem to have crashed
02:19-!-k1lumin4t1_ [~k1lumin4t@] has quit [Quit: Haribol]

02:21<jm_>yup, so something might be polling your CD/DVD drive
02:21-!-adalberto [] has left #debian [Konversation terminated!]
02:23<jm_>chealer: I had a similar issue with my old system in Linux ever since I bought a SATA DVD-ROM unit - reading from it would usually lock up the system after a while, but I never bothered investigating it since I rarely needed it (haven't tested this on my new system yet)
02:24<jm_>in reality it would mean I needed to contact LKML/submit a kernel bug
02:24-!-ant_ [] has joined #debian
02:24<chealer>kop: yeah, I guess I'll blame it on that. the system ran plenty of memtest86 lately, replaced a faulty stick just 2 weeks ago

02:26-!-michael is now known as Guest727
02:26<chealer>jm_: yeah. I was running 2.6.39-rc5, so I guess I'll see how rc7 does. still odd that an idle PC would crash because of an empty ODD...
02:26-!-Guest727 is now known as mikee
02:26<kop>chealer: Blame the heat death of the universe.

04:01<patrykr>I need to open ports and redirect it to computer in lan. I can't do this! I type: iptables -I INPUT -i eth -p tcp --dport 9000 -j ACCEPT and the port is still close. Is something else except iptables can blocking that port?
04:01-!-e-ndy [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
04:02<XayOn>Guest740: I guess booting a livecd, chrooting into your system and running /lib/ /bin/ln -s /lib /lib64 will do it, as stated in the bug's page.

04:10<Guest740>Guys, thanks for the answers. I hope I will do this without a livecd 'cause my connection is slow:)
04:10<fosser_josh>i hav debian 6 in my pc and i added new realtek 8139c lan card but its not detecting
04:10<jm_>patrykr: your usage also looks odd, -i eth - note that this should be exact name or something like eth+
04:10<jm_>Guest235: read mail from Josh Tripplet to find out how to do it this way
04:10-!-e-ndy [] has joined #debian
04:10<patrykr>jm_: yes, I type eth0.. But I nedd to have listening process on that port?
04:11<jm_>uhm Triplett
04:11<jm_>patrykr: no, not if you want to forward it to another system (but there are tools that can do this for you this way too, i.e. rinetd, xinetd ...)

06:51<SynrG>and in any case, go there for sid support. this is for stable here.
06:52-!-Zaba [] has joined #debian
06:52<SynrG>i take exception to stable has "antiquated" programs. you know stable just released in february? :)
06:52<sagac>Kde 4.6.3 and gnome3?
06:53<SynrG>gnome2 is *antiquated*? i'm just picking at your choice of words
06:53<Lethalman>huh #debian-next is recente?
06:53<Lethalman>I might want to go there then :P see you
06:53<sagac>SynrG, Thanks for your kind suggestion,, sorry if I mistook of channel and appeared ranting , I love open source software and only use it even for drivers thats why those bugs hurts.
06:53-!-shoko_asahara [] has joined #debian
06:54<shoko_asahara>hi there, free world...
06:54<SynrG>sagac: i feel your pain. however, questioning whether linux is suitable for you based on hitting bugs in sid is ... well ... kind of due to unrealistic expectations
06:54<SynrG>you can have stable and proven
06:54<SynrG>or you can have new and possibly buggy
06:54<SynrG>take your pick
06:55<sagac>Generally I do my homework and when some users expect normal desktop users non programmer to fix those bugs it just annoys me
06:55<shoko_asahara>I have a strange problem, auido is not working through my headphones, jack output...
06:55-!-lidy [] has joined #debian
06:55<shoko_asahara>It works fine in speakers, (and jack output works in Windows).
06:55<sagac>SynrG, I just want to have new apps and oldish udev,kernel,"system" only the vlc,chromium,banshee and co .
06:55<shoko_asahara>Headphones is not mutted in the mixer.
06:55<jm_>and it annoys me that people assume one needs to be a programmer to fix bugs
06:56<shoko_asahara>but it just don't work... any ideas?

06:56<shoko_asahara>jm_ Debugging is one of the most dificult tasks in the development process...
06:56<sagac>SynrG, I hit those bugs in every kind of distro:ubuntu,fedora,opensuse,archlinux,sabayon,debian sid and testing
06:56<lidy>do you like tuenti???
06:57-!-lidy [] has quit []
06:57<shoko_asahara>one can easily spend one week hunting for the bug in the code, running in debugin mode, gdb and so.
06:57<shoko_asahara>one has to understand the PL very well, if hunting for unexpected side-effects.
06:57<jm_>shoko_asahara: you don't need to explain this to me, my work consists of lab support
06:58<shoko_asahara>even sometimes one has to understand how does the OS work...
06:58<shoko_asahara>jm_: so what do you exactly mean?
06:59<jm_>shoko_asahara: that people who are not programmers can still contribute a lot to fixing bugs, find ways how to reproduce them, workardounds - there are many things to do ...
07:00<shoko_asahara>oh, absolutely.
07:00<shoko_asahara>actually that's a very important thing, to be able to reproduce them.
07:01<shoko_asahara>I'd say that if u are able to reproduce them, you got it.
07:02<sagac>The problem is that home users should not have to work for the computer it should be the other way around.Some people left from windows because of this reason , a computer is for most an appliance , people have others work than working on the computer.
07:03<shoko_asahara>yes, that's right.

08:44<Osiris_X>classical, it sounds like you are measuring to the nearest inode block size
08:45<Osiris_X>classical, try ls -al on it - yours is probably about 2Kb
08:45<Osiris_X>diederik, are you using systemd?

08:45<flower> mount backup.img /mnt/lucid/
08:45<flower>mount: /mnt/usbstick/backup.img is not a block device (maybe try `-o loop'?)

09:47<kenyon>webed: the debian installer has support for creating and installing on software raid
09:47<Osiris_X>nevyn, better with or without KMS?
09:47<nevyn>Osiris_X: on a card that old god know.
09:48<Osiris_X>nevyn, :)
09:48<nevyn>Osiris_X: it really depends if anyone gave that portion of the driver any love in the last few years as X moved to KMS
09:49<Osiris_X>nevyn, I suspect the answer would be very little
09:49<Osiris_X>and maybe only generic optimisations are going to impact it
09:49<nevyn>Osiris_X: the problem is even tho the X devs all agree there are three drivers that matter. (nvidia, radeon and intel) how much love the old code within those drivers get asthese changes happen.. shrug
09:49<Osiris_X>nevyn, I understand, thanks for the info

10:26<kop>nevyn, Osiris_X : What's for sure is that you'll get better support from the X folks for old hardware than you will from the hardware vendors. They simply remove support from their drivers and you're out of luck.

10:51<engywucz>i have two machines (one debian stable, one testing) and want to run a program on the debian stable one to output on my laptop (debian testing)

10:52-!-jhutchins_lt [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:52<nevyn>can you ssh from your laptop to your desktop?
10:52<engywucz>in ancient times I used to do "xhost" on my laptop (that's the IP of the server
10:52<nevyn>that's evil and wrong.
10:52<dpkg>xhost is EVIL! There are so many other ways of getting remote X apps to work that xhost should never be needed. For a more sensible approach, use SSH X11 forwarding, ask me about <sshx>. Also see <mit-magic-cookie>, <nolisten> and "apt-cache show xbase-clients | grep xhost". To run applications on your local machine as another user, see <root x>. See also <xhost +localhost>.
10:52<engywucz>and "export DISPLAY=" on the server
10:52<nevyn>see above.
10:53<engywucz>ahhh, thats why I get "Cannot connect to ..." when trying
10:53<nevyn>engywucz: client but whatever.
10:53<babilen>engywucz: You probably just want ssh -X
10:53<engywucz>!dpkg sshx
10:53<dpkg>You can run X11 apps securely over an ssh connection without <xhost> nor X TCP support. Enable X11Forwarding _on the remote server_ (/etc/ssh/sshd_config) and install xauth (squeeze, lenny) or xbase-clients (etch) on both the client and the server. Then "ssh -X" from the client and run X apps on the remote machine. See also <root x> and <cygwin sshx>.
10:54<babilen>engywucz: And you can "/msg dpkg sshx" or "/msg dpkg mit-magic-cookie" for further information :)

11:51<sney>don't know offhand, but I think those wheels are usually treated as a joystick, right? just a bunch of analog axes?
11:51<sney>the real question is whether there are any racing games other than Tux Racer
11:52<mjt>f.e. etracer, trigger-rally, torcs - these games are supposed to be controllable using a wheel gamepad, but they just ignore the device
11:52<sney>it's probably a configuration issue

15:33<chealer>a GeForce 2 can surely handle more than 1024x768
15:33<jon__>chealer: yes

15:41<jon__>sney: so just Identifier `"Screen" / Driver "nv"` should be enough?
15:42<jon__>time to reboot then. thanks.
15:42<sney>oh you probably have to blacklist nouveau
15:42<jon__>how do i do that?
15:42<sney>I don't remember if it's necessary for nv, but it can't hurt
15:43<sney>in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
15:43<sney>the syntax is pretty obvious

18:34<xplicit>so iceweasel basically /is/ firefox with a different logo. I assume this is why there is no package for firefox with I apt-get

18:37<xplicit>I like iceweasel so far, I have no issues I was just confused as to why there was no repositories for firefox when I searched, but there were tons for iceweasel.

18:41<grove>While we are on the subject of browsers. I have tried chromium, decided I didn't like it as much as iceweasel, but kept it at work for when I need two browsers (for testing things), but today I saw that I can't update/install extensions because google thinks the version from squeeze is too old.

18:45<retrospectacus>all you really have to do is add a sid source, update, install chromium-browser, then remove the sid source, update. You'll be running stable and have chromium from sid
18:46<babilen>I will never be able to use chromium if the vim plugins stay in the shape they are in now. But development to a level that is on par with pentadactyl is unlikely due to the way extensions are implemented.
18:46<retrospectacus>mileage may vary slightly due to dependencies, but this is what I did, quite simple.

21:29<tin-kidneys>Hey folks, having an issue with openbox (i use openbox standalone, without Gnome or any other DE). I boot to the commandline, type "openbox-session" and get "cannot open display." I can get in just fine using startx, but i'm unable to get it to work using custom config files.
21:30<tin-kidneys>any ideas?
21:30<SynrG>why do you think running openbox-session from a console should work?
21:30<SynrG>that doesn't work any more than typing 'iceweasel' from the commandline does
21:31<SynrG>(on console, i mean)
21:31<tin-kidneys>I must have read the Documentation wrong.
21:31-!-weedeater64 [] has left #debian []

21:57<ayaka>Adonai, installing

21:58<ayaka>Adonai, it seems my gnutella's version is too old, I compile it myself it work thank you

23:29<Jardi>I want to get a Linux laptop... What I don't want is to pay for Windows 7 that comes on every laptop if I'm gonna end up formating it and installing Linux on it..
23:30<Jardi>wondering if somebody here can give me an advice..
23:30<wicdtrouble>Jardi, System76 sells laptops with ubuntu on them. I recently bought a System76 laptop. In my experience, it costs the SAME to get a laptop like System76 and something like Toshiba with the SAME specs that comes with Windows

23:32<Jardi>I like Lenovo Thinkpads but I contacted Lenovo some days ago, and the only option they gave was Windows as OS
23:33<kop>Jardi: Get something pre-installed so you know it works, or get a thinkpad. Get one off ebay if you don't want an os. (FWIW I've had good luck with pre-installed systems, although have not bought a laptop.)

23:33<wicdtrouble>Well, then I suggest you get lenovo and install linux on them. its a myth that you are paying for win7. In fact Microsoft subsidizes laptops with win7 so you are getting the same specification laptop for LESS

I only found that out AFTER I bought this expensive pangolin performance laptop from System 76 and then found that the toshiba systems were relatively cheaper and I could have got i7 instead of i5 and couple GB of RAMs more, had I got a win7 preinstalled toshiba
23:37<wicdtrouble>System76 has excellent customer service but only for ubunty

23:37<Jardi>What do you think about Thinkpads? I personally like them
23:37<wicdtrouble>I mean
23:37-!-byonk [] has joined #debian
23:37<ml|>Jardi: I also recommend a thinkpad used or new
23:37<andantino>any opinions on mint vs ubuntu
23:37<wicdtrouble>I have always been a toshiba person....
23:38<wicdtrouble>But this time I went with System76
23:38<nevyn>andantino: neither of them are debian.
23:38<akerl>andantino: ubuntu doesn't freshen breath. Which makes it less useful on dates.
23:38<wicdtrouble>I have to say that the function keys work with ANY linux - including debian but apart from that, not such a big difference
23:39<Jardi>I'm looking at the thinkpad Edges, does somebody know if they are Debian compatible, or if there are any known problems
23:39<andantino>is there a channel where that question would be more appropriate
23:39<akerl>#ubuntu on freenode?
23:39<ml|>#linux or freenode perhaps

23:40<andantino>ok thanks akerl and ml
23:40-!-rizze [] has quit []
23:40<wicdtrouble>for what its worth ALL System76 laptops are manufactured by clevo, Maybe you could get a laptop for cheaper from them without any OS
23:41<wicdtrouble>same construction and no branding charges from System76
23:41<wicdtrouble>the construction equals that of Macs btw
23:41-!-andantino [] has quit []
23:41<Jardi>but if I get one with no OS how can I assure it works fine and that I won't have troubles later..
23:42<ml|>wicdtrouble: btw, you should run... lspci -nn | grep -i network and paste the output here

23:42<wicdtrouble>thanks very much, ml| - doing that now
23:43<wicdtrouble>06:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8191SEvB Wireless LAN Controller [10ec:8172] (rev 10)
23:43<ml|>judd: pciid 10ec:8172
23:43<judd>[10ec:8172] is 'RTL8191SEvB Wireless LAN Controller' from 'Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.' with no known kernel module in squeeze or in sid. See also
23:44<ml|>looks like you need to use a driver from realtek, but read that link
23:45<Tiff>the firmware-realtek package doesn't currently support RTL8191SE as per:
23:45<Tiff>on that report is a link to the driver from realtek
23:45<kop>Jardi: Run a debian-live cd on it.
23:45<kop>Jardi: (Or just install.)
23:46<Jardi>I think I'll stick to the Thinkpad..
23:47<Skullz>Ohai, people.
23:48<wicdtrouble>judd, thanks for that. I think I will try installing the realtek driver from their site if available. Tiff, thanks very much indeed
23:48<Jardi>does any body know if there are any compatibility issues with Debian on Thinkpad Edges series? I guess it will depen of what model I get.
23:49<ml|>Jardi: fwiw, the edge series is not a _real_ thinkpad, imho
23:49<Jardi>Then, what do you suggest?
23:50<Jardi>T series?
23:50<ml|>compare an edge to a T or X series and you will see what I mean
23:50-!-Vlam [] has left #debian []
23:50<Jardi>I already looked at the X series, but they are too small for me..
23:51<Jardi>I want something around the 15" screen
23:51<ml|>then T it is ;)
23:51<Jardi>yeah, that's my other option a bit more expensive thought. Is it worth the money?
23:51<ml|>I own two older X series and work great with debian; one is actually running pfsense
23:52<ml|>yes, every penny!
23:52<Jardi>I read their battery lasts a lot..
23:52<Osiris_X>is it actually possible to run gnome 3 on old hardware? does it run with compiz or in place of compiz?
23:52<ml|>for X series yes
23:53-!-Skullz [] has left #debian [Leaving]
23:53<ml|>not sure on T series tho
23:53-!-pipeep [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:54<Jardi>all right, and the screen for X series is 12" right, I'm used to working with not so small screens.
23:56<wicdtrouble>on ubuntu forums, a bunch of people were having trouble with the same wireless card and according to post #19 in that thread the problem was solved with a bios update and an upgrade of the Linux kernel
23:56<ml|>around 12" yes; but the screens are sharp/crisp
23:56<wicdtrouble>Does that mean debian has an outdated kernel?
23:58-!-aviad- [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
23:59<ml|>the debian kernel does not include non-free stuff, so you need firmware-realtek package; but like Tiff said your card is not supported yet, read the bug report Tiff linked
23:59<ml|>wicdtrouble: ^
