02:41<bony> I am trying to compile a driver for a usb tv card. It fails at one point were it says that their is an error in header file videobuf-dvb.h and the error is that its not able to find another header file dvbdev.h. When i searched for this header file in i didn't get any. is their a way to fix this problem? I guess if i can get a copy of dvbdev.h file the problem is resolved.
02:43<xwl>bony, looks like apt-get install libdvb-dev

02:58<macfreak>any vpn gurus around ?
02:59<dpkg>If you have a question, just ask! For example: "I have a problem with ___; I'm running Debian version ___. When I try to do ___ I get the following output ___. I expected it to do ___." Don't ask if you can ask, if anyone uses it, or pick one person to ask. We're all volunteers; make it easy for us to help you. If you don't get an answer try a few hours later or on See <smart questions><errors>.
02:59<macfreak>I have 50/4Mbit internet connection
03:00<macfreak>but when I connect through vpn pptp from outside, my transfer rate from ubuntu over smb protocol is 20-25KBps
03:01<macfreak>mtu is set to auto negotiate and settles at around 1200
03:01<macfreak>can't believe that the low transfer rate is caused by encryption alone

04:59<sharpK>is there an apt-get command I can run (with backports) to upgrade my kernel to 3.2 (from 2.6)? the installation does something then I get an "END" line, and nothing really happens...?
05:01-!-Miguel0n [] has joined #debian
05:01<weasel>yes. and huh?
05:02-!-slava [~slava@] has joined #debian
05:02-!-PTKDev [] has joined #debian
05:02<sharpK>weasel, I'm thinking maybe I am entering the wrong apt-get or something, because it never goes through
05:02<sharpK>jsut kind of sits and nothing happens...
05:02<sml>sharpK: apt-get install linux-image-2.6 ?
05:03<sharpK>sml, is that to upgrade the kernel from 2.6 to 3.2?
05:03<sml>yes. if you're using backports
05:03<sharpK>i am on 2.6 (squeeze) right now..
05:03<sharpK>oh, ok...
05:03<sml>apt-get -t squeeze-backports
05:03<sharpK>I'll try that righ tnow
05:03<sml>think you need to specify the target release when using backports
05:04<sml>,judd kernels
05:04<judd>Available kernel versions are: experimental: 3.3.0-rc6-686-pae (3.3~rc6-1~experimental.1); sid: 3.2.0-2-686-pae (3.2.9-1); wheezy: 3.2.0-1-686-pae (3.2.6-1); squeeze-backports: 3.2.0-0.bpo.1-686-pae (3.2.4-1~bpo60+1); squeeze: 2.6.32-5-686 (2.6.32-41); lenny-backports: 2.6.32-bpo.5-686 (2.6.32-35~bpo50+1); lenny: 2.6.26-2-686 (2.6.26-27)
05:04<sml>there ya go. 3.2's in backports. it did take a longtime for a 3.x kernel to get into bpo
05:05<sharpK>so would the command be "apt-get -t squeeze-backports install 3.2.0-0.bpo.1-686-pae" ?
05:05-!-Varialus [] has joined #debian
05:05<weasel>run apt-cache search linux-image
05:06-!-dirichlet [] has joined #debian
05:09<sharpK>okay, so I see all the image files, and one of them is 3.2 amd64, would I then apt-get install linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.1-amd64 ??
05:10-!-mode/#debian [+l 473] by debhelper
05:11<weasel>for instance, or you install the meta-package (linux-image-amd64) from backports
05:11<weasel>it should depend on the most recent available kernel (and pull in the other package now, and new ones when they get added)
05:13<sharpk[deb]>weasel, well, just tried that apt-get I mentioned, and it tells me it has unmet dependencies...
05:13-!-ant [] has joined #debian
05:14<weasel>sharpk[deb]: either use -t squeeze-backports, or install the things it depends on from squeeze-backports too. apt-get install linux-image... foo/squeeze-backports bar/squeeze-backports
05:16-!-Enorian [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
05:17<sharpk[deb]>tried that same image file name with -t squeeze-backports and it gave me a y/n, went through with it and now this is what I have:
05:17<sharpk[deb]>not sure if that means it's installing...

05:23<weasel>you are in a pager that shows you text.
05:24<weasel>maybe you should tell it that you have read it, or that you don't care what it has to show you.
05:24<weasel>it's waiting on you.
05:25<sharpK>this may be ridiculous but I'm not sure what to input to make it go away
05:25-!-alvarezp [] has joined #debian
05:25<sharpK>it's not asking me to input anything...
05:27<weasel>(why did you install apt-listchanges, if you don't care about it and are just confused by what it does?)
05:27<sharpK>yup, that did it, is this a standard or something, cause it didn't say that anywhere...?
05:27<sharpK>I don't htink I ever did
05:27<sharpK>I am on (obviously) my first, clean debian install...

05:38<sml>a bit offtopic but a quickie just on the offchance someone knows. is running a virtual disk (as in, vdi, vdmx etc) any more prone to corruption that a 'physical' disk?
05:38<sharpK>phew, okay, i'm finally booted into 3.2 it's weirdly displaying the desktop on the top 3/4s of my screen, so all I need now (hopefully) is to get the nvidia drivers going. I tried backports for the nvidia-kernel-dkms but it says packages necessary are uninstallable?
05:38<sml>sharpK: i think the nvidia stuff can be a pain in the backside to get working sometimes..
05:39<sharpK>backside meaning 3.2? cause it went smoothly in 2.6...?
05:39<sml>sharpK: no i mean getting it working in general. as in the drivers etc.
05:40-!-mode/#debian [+l 479] by debhelper
05:40<sharpK>should it be any harder in 3.2 than in 2.6?
05:40<sml>sharpK: I can't see why it should be.
05:41-!-XeonBloomfield [] has joined #debian
05:43<sharpK>sml well, I had all the nvidia drivers working perfectly in 2.6, actually everything was perfect with the exception of audio over HDMI, which after 3-4 days of reading and consulting through various mediums (including many IRC questions) I just couldn't get to work. Someone told me yesterday a module that is available on 3.2 which isn't on 2.6 could be it, so now that I'm finally here on 3.2
05:43<sharpK>(and I can see the HDMI device on aplay -l) I am hoping that installing the nvidia x server and drivers can finally get everything working...

07:09<towo`>sharpK, your system is using fbdev
07:09<towo`>sharpK, if you want the binary blob, you need a xorg.conf
07:09-!-olegb [] has joined #debian
07:09<towo`>sharpK, it seems, nouveau does not support you secret graphicscard
07:10<sharpK>towo` ok... well, when I "nvidia xconfig" it created an xorg.conf file. But that's what stopped me from booting...
07:10-!-olegb [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
07:10<sharpK>and the card is a geforce gt 220
07:10<sharpK>all these drivers did work fine in 2.6 (I am not in 3.2)
07:11<towo`>sharpK, that's logical, because the nouveau kernel-driver isloaded
07:11<sharpK>towo` is there anything I can do?
07:11<towo`>sharpK, in which way you have installed the nvidia-driver?
07:12<sharpK>towo` apt-get install whole bunch of different nvidia stuff (kernel-dkms, glx, kernel-common, some others)
07:12<towo`>sharpK, dpkg -l | grep nvidia
07:13<towo`>but i see it
07:13<towo`>195.36.31 will never ever work on kernel 3.2
07:13<sharpK>should I try the backport?
07:14-!-chattr [~mike@] has joined #debian

08:42<Deltatash>Hi, I have added this to my sources.list and then I run apt-get update and then apt-get install wine. The problem is it always installs the out dated verison of wine 1.1 that is in my synaptics packet manager by default. what Command do I use to install the stable 1.4 version now that I have the sources added to my sources.list?
08:43<Deltatash>also I have added the key, so I am not sure why it keeps installing the old version of wine now it has the source to the newer stable version
08:45-!-Droscy [] has joined #debian
08:45<ayaka>you should use backports
08:45<dpkg>A backport is a package from a newer Debian branch, compiled from source for an older branch to avoid dependency and <ABI> complications. (2.7.4 and 2.7.10), . Ask me about <debian-backports> and <backport caveat>. See also <simple sid backport>.

08:46-!-manel [~EMROG@] has joined #debian
08:49<Deltatash>so basically I need to add this "deb squeeze-backports main contrib non-free" ? to my sources.list for latest stable version of wine?
08:49<ayaka>no, as i know , the wine in it has been freezed
08:50-!-grandie [] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
08:50<Deltatash>so how do I get 1.4 :s
08:50<Deltatash>apart from going to the site and compiling it myself from source :s
08:50<ayaka>i mean the wine in 6.0
08:51<ayaka>backports should have it or you can compile youself
08:51<Deltatash>ahh ok
08:51<Deltatash>thanks Ill try backports now
08:51<fasta>ayaka: that's just so easy to say.

08:55-!-grandie [] has joined #debian

10:48<Sicelo>wfm with lxde. i agree with valdyn though
10:48<ejm>I asked
10:48<ejm>Why isn't excecuting a Java application in Debian w/ LXDE working?
10:48<valdyn>ejm: It seems obvious to me that its not possible to debug this with such vague information.
10:49<Sicelo>ejm: works for me
10:49<valdyn>ejm: is it just *one* app or *any* .jar ?
10:49-!-zigo [~quassel@] has joined #debian
10:49<Sicelo>also, which jre you have ..
10:49<ejm>Its' any Java app that I try to run from the command line using the 'jar' command in java
10:50<valdyn>ejm: which apps did you try?
10:50<sml>any preference these days with racoon (ipsec-tools) and openswan? not sure which to use for a new installation.
10:50<ejm>I tried HeliosPaint
10:50<ejm>It's a free download, and it works on my other laptop using KDE with Arch Linux
10:50<ejm>But not with Debian (or Ubuntu) with LXDE

10:51<ejm>valdyn, Because Java required a proper desktoop env to run

10:51<valdyn>ejm: now thats news to me
10:51<derickx>new RT kernel hangs here by ACPI
10:52<valdyn>ejm: java typically requires no such thing
10:52<derickx>what could that be?
10:52<ejm>valdyn, You running LXDE?
10:52<valdyn>ejm: nope
10:52<ejm>Well then, you wouldn't know what I'm referring to then

10:52-!-shuynut [~shuynut@] has quit []
10:52<valdyn>ejm: the point is, that you tried once on debian, once on arch, and you tell us the difference is just kde

11:01<valdyn>ejm: so this isnt debian, but its also not the same virtual machines
11:02<ejm>I told you, I have two laptops with two Linux distros
11:02<valdyn>ejm: yea
11:02<ejm>The one not working with my Java apps is the Debian distro
11:02<ejm>Arch Linux with Java works fine
11:02<valdyn>ejm: so you didnt show me java -version of that one yet
11:02<ejm>sure I have

11:03<valdyn>ejm: i see a ubuntu version

11:04<valdyn>ejm: no, copy and paste you should and should have done on a paste site
11:04<ejm>valdyn, It's all here
11:04<valdyn>Erbureth: yea, thats arch, not debian
11:04<ejm>And Debian is just prior to that
11:05<Erbureth>valdyn: and debian is OpenJDK
11:05<Erbureth>ah, i see
11:05<valdyn>Erbureth: i see ubuntu, not debian

11:07<ejm>Perhaps I'll install Debian with LXDE once again and paste my results here?
11:07<sney>ejm, that's irrelevant, #debian only supports actual Debian installs. the rules are very clear on that point.
11:07<ejm>They are the same
11:07<sney>if you did then we could help
11:07<sney>or you could try in #ubuntu
11:07<sney>your choice.
11:07<Erbureth>sney: however this sounds like openjdk bug anyway
11:07<ejm>I was here just last night while I still had Debian installed.
11:08<ejm>Erbureth, That's what it may be, and OpenJDK bug
11:09<sney>Erbureth, well, if you want to open the can of worms of supporting derivatives that's up to you, but maybe you could take it to a pm or another channel
11:10<Erbureth>sney: i was just stating
11:10<ejm>I'll install Debian in one hour, along with LXDE, and show you my results...they are the same
11:11<valdyn>ejm: could you please switch vms to suns hotspot and try again?
11:11<valdyn>ejm: do you get the first dialogue even where its not working?
11:13<ejm>I do get the dialogue (splash screen), after that, no application, just a blank screen
11:14-!-gnugr [] has quit [Quit: WeeChat 0.3.6]
11:14<valdyn>ejm: ok, then i can reproduce this

11:25<valdyn>ejm: its a race condition in squeeze openjdk: it sometimes works, sometimes not
11:26<valdyn>ejm: or umm, i think once that dialogue is confirmed properly it just works without it
11:27<ejm>In my case, it was always "not" ;)
11:27<sml>if you're just on a vt, how do you paste into vi?
11:27<valdyn>ejm: it has to work once *with* dialogue, so once you need suns vm
11:27<ejm>So yeah, you have a good point, it's not the desktoop environment, it's the JRE / JDK used
11:28<dpkg>Install gpm, which gives you familiar mouse functionality from the console ; or upload a file to; or: apt-get install w3m ; w3m ; hit enter on the Big Box, it will open /usr/bin/editor where you can insert the file, then save ; then hit enter on the submit button in w3m, or the "screen" utility also provides keyboard driven copy/paste, or ask me about <paste2pastebin pipe>

12:51<Nik05>hey guys is there a aptitude packages without the GUI thingy?
12:51<Nik05>so its not as heavy as aptitude is
12:51<Nik05>and i dont mean apt-get
12:52<Nik05>no i just need the aptitude commandline program
12:53<Zaba>so don't install aptitude-gtk?
12:53<Nik05>no i dont mean that
12:53-!-diego [] has joined #debian
12:53<Nik05>when you start aptitude without parameters, you get some kind of GUI
12:54<Nik05>i dont use that, like many people i think
12:54<daemonkeeper>So use apt-get.
12:54<Nik05>but it is still loaded into memory
12:54<daemonkeeper>So use apt-get.
12:54-!-biologolunar [~jumost@] has quit [Quit: Bye!!]
12:54<Nik05>the question is, is there a package that is a clone of aptitude but without the aptitude gui
12:54<Nik05>so not apt-get
12:55<daemonkeeper>Yes, we call it 'apt-get'.
12:55<Nik05>no apt-get is not aptitude
12:55<daemonkeeper>So, what is apt-get then, if you strip the GUI interface from aptitude?
12:55<Nik05>different program
12:55<daemonkeeper>Exactly your point.
12:55<Nik05>totally different
12:56<daemonkeeper>*sigh* If you say so.
12:56<Nik05>it is -_-
12:56<Nik05>But the question still is, is there a aptitude clone with the GUI stripped?
12:57<Nik05>apt-cache search ~U is not working for example daemonkeeper
12:57<Zaba>yeah.. it's a 3.8MB executable. What a big deal.
12:57<Nik05>well its pretty memory heavy
12:57<Zaba>not even for my 11 years old laptop
12:58<dupondje>Hmz, KEYMAP is set to y in initramfs, but still I get qwerty layout at boottime, any idea ?
12:58<Nik05>Zaba it was just a question
12:58-!-ww_ [~ww@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
12:58<Nik05>but i guess no one can answer it :P
12:58<Nik05>Is there a clone without GUI or not?
12:59<Nik05>Guess not :P
12:59-!-ww [~ww@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
12:59<Zaba>daemonkeeper, FWIW, aptitude has the "smart" dependency conflict resolver and what not
12:59<Zaba>when compared to apt-get
12:59-!-miggs [~miggs@] has joined #debian
13:00<Nik05>ok what i mean, is there an aptitude clone without ncurses?
13:00-!-user [~user@] has joined #debian
13:00<daemonkeeper>Zaba: That does not contradict to what I said.
13:00<Nik05>it does :P

13:01-!-floe__ [] has joined #debian
13:02<daemonkeeper>Zaba: Well, I'm sure I can tell you about 10 more differences. That said, the core functionality is the same. Of course they use different algorithms to come there, that's the whole point of aptitude.
13:02<Nik05>yes daemon, and my question was if there was a program that uses the algorithms aptitude uses
13:02<Nik05>but without ncurses
13:02<Nik05>so has nothing to do with apt-get
13:02<Guest5762>I've installed truecrypt, I need this to decrypt a container with accounts information and such. (tell me if there's a handy alternative to truecrypt that is FOSS) when trying to mount a cointainer it asks for a password, both passwords I give are said wrong, but I am pretty sure it's the right admin/user passwords. and no it's not the encryption key
13:02<Zaba>daemonkeeper, it's safe to assume that if somebody is looking for aptitude without the TUI, they care -precisely- about one ore more of those differences
13:03<Zaba>Nik05, but why do you care? Are you on a very memory-constrained system?
13:03<valdyn>Nik05: why without ncurses? aptitude already has a command line interface....
13:03<Nik05>valdyn ncurses get loaded even when not using ncurses
13:03<valdyn>Nik05: i do not understand how that can be a problem
13:04<daemonkeeper>Zaba: Probably not. From the pure command line both programs behave very similar, except that aptitude incorporates functions several other apt-* helper have and lack some other features like patterns.
13:04<valdyn>Nik05: considering aptitude memory usage is orders of magnitude higher due to things unrelated to ncurses
13:04<daemonkeeper>s/lack/has some features apt doesn't/
13:04<valdyn>Nik05: but did you look at aptitude compile time configuration?

13:42<garn32>the drivers in the repository will be a little but older but are generally much more stable, are you running 32-bit or 64-bit?
13:44<garn32>'sudo aptitude install nvidia-kernel-195.36.31', should do the trick for you

13:49<varialus>Guest5762, TrueCrypt doesn't need to be run as root. When it requires root privileges, it will ask for your password. I'm not sure whether it requires your user to sudo root privileges, but when I have used it, my user did have sudo root privileges. Running at as root is generally not recommended, but it should work fine.
13:49<Guest5762>yes, what's the exact line
13:50<garn32>look for a line '#%sudo ALL=(ALL) ALL' and remove the # at the front of the line

18:32<ChrisKnadle>I don't know of a tutorial off the top of my head, but I've heard of people downloading drivers/firmware and putting them on a USB stick and loading them as part of the install.
18:33<streuner>drivers are part of the kernel, you cannot just copy a driver into a kernel
18:33<ChrisKnadle>Well, yeah you can.
18:33<streuner>without compiling? :-)
18:33<ChrisKnadle>It just has to be compiled for that version of the kernel.

19:31<wilson_>did I get bump because I did a paste?
19:32<ChrisKnadle>Aptitude does a good job of marking packages as "installed to satisfy a dependency", but apt-get does not.
19:32<ChrisKnadle>wilson_: yes. :-/
19:32<streuner>only 2 lines here please, wilson_
19:32<wilson_>no prob
19:32<ChrisKnadle>tralllator: as a result, apache2.2-common may not be automatically removed/purged when you remove/purge apache2.
19:33<wilson_>so looking at the above error... what do you think is going on?
19:33<wilson_>trying to join the ubuntu server
19:33<streuner>server is
19:34<ChrisKnadle>well, it says 'no route to host'
19:34<streuner>but, anyway, what does "ping -c1" say, and why port 8001?
19:34<ring0>ChrisKnadle, there is even a shorter way to delete configfiles: aptitude purge '~c'
19:35<streuner>maybe try ( Port 6667.
19:35<tralllator>ChrisKnadle: oh,i get it, so,is there any posible way,when i install apache2 (withanother importatnt parts) to remove apache2 with all those pacgakes left behind ?

20:13<Exodus>I have debian squeeze installed of course, my issue is I have no way of connecting the computer with squeeze installed to a router. So I try to bridge from a Windows based PC and it detects the network and is assigned a local ip, but it can't access the internet. I have a wireless dongle, but I can't use it until I have wireless-tools installed, but I can't install it without the internet.
20:13<Exodus>There are several ways of going about this but also will not work. Any other suggestions on how to get wireless-tools on my system?
20:15<psycho_oreos>can't you bridge it to your router instead?

20:17<psycho_oreos>Exodus, it works fine but that doesn't mean you have necessary internet connections
20:17<psycho_oreos>Exodus, also I'm not too familiar with windows but there's things like ICF/ICS you need to look at and maybe open up a few ports so that your debian box can access internet

23:23<garn32>Exodus, you don't really need file extensions in linux
23:23<Exodus>garn32: it said the file was ignored because of "...invalid filename extension"
23:23<garn32>Exodus, what is the
23:24<garn32>'it' in the previous statement?

23:36<Exodus>garn32: Well my question now, is how do I install the kernal from that?
23:36<Exodus>garn32: the repo is there now
23:36<garn32>Exodus, have you updated since you added the repo?
23:36<Exodus>garn32: you mean, apt-get update?
23:37<garn32>Exodus, yes
23:37<Exodus>garn32: yes everything worked fine, it added it
23:37<garn32>Exodus, that link that I gave has the instructions on how to install from the other repos as well in it
23:38<Exodus>garn32: 'apt-get -t squeeze-backports install "package"' issue is, I don't know which package to install

23:48<Exodus>theres no 2.6.35
23:48<Exodus>should I get 3.2.0
23:49<garn32>Exodus, I think that it should have what you need in it as well but I don't know for a fact
23:50<Exodus>garn32: well I'm downloading now
23:50<Exodus>garn32: any command to restart my kernal or just reboot?
23:51<garn32>Exodus, it would be easier to just reboot
23:52<ChrisKnadle>Exodus: 2.6.35 exists at least in linux-stable
23:56<Exodus>ok kernal 3.2 isntalled, but no drivers

23:56<Exodus>I did ifconfig -a and lsci and no evidence of the adapter
23:59<ChrisKnadle>What kind of adapter? [if it's a USB adaptor, you need to run lsusb rather than lspci]
