00:00<Ceno>then I went into nano and deleted the stuff I added, and gdm started immediately after... weird
00:00<pparadis>specifically, i think you need the options from Reference a on that link.
00:00<tweek>i have a question: i wanted to change the lsb init headers of checkfs to depend on cpufrequtils (overheating issue), but i noticed that these scripts are in different runlevels (checkfs is in S, cpufrequtils is in 2 3 4 5). so is it even possible to do that?
00:01-!-kevinbenko [] has joined #debian
00:03<Ceno>could you look at my config on pastebin? the bottom Section is added by me, all else is default.
00:04-!-depianpai [] has joined #debian
00:06<pparadis>Ceno: just from a cursory look, i note that some of the options listed on the link i pasted earlier don't appear in your config.
00:06-!-cattle [] has joined #debian
00:06<Ceno>oh yeah, I actually did a mishmash of a bunch of other tutes.
00:06<Ceno> All options I tested numerous times
00:07<Ceno>I removed those that didn't do anything
00:07<pparadis>Ceno: i would recommend trying the options on step 3 from "Protocol" on down.
00:07-!-noahfx_ [~noahfx@] has joined #debian
00:07<Ceno>but that link refers to /etc/X11/xorg.conf, which messed up launching gdm
00:07<Ceno>when I modified it
00:07<Ceno>I'll look at it
00:09<pparadis>perhaps you added options before that weren't compatible with your setup. in any event, i'd try adding the options i just discussed and see what happens.
00:09<pparadis>no guarantees, but maybe it will help :)

00:22<pparadis>Ceno: :/ that's no good. i'm pretty sure those are the sort of options you want to specify in your xorg configuration; maybe it's time to spend some time with the xorg.conf man page. i'm at a disadvantage here help-wise, because i don't have anything resembling your config.
00:25<Ceno>yeah. I'll try modifying etc/X11/xorg.conf
00:25<Ceno>maybe I can figure out how to not break it
00:28<Ceno>I'm setting /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf back to default
00:29<Ceno>mouse now works

00:31<Ceno>in fact, I have NO /etc/X11/xorg.conf present
00:31<Ceno>should I create one? or will that break something?

00:51<pparadis>it should also get renamed to xorg.conf of course.
00:51<Ceno>should I rename it to xorg.conf ?
00:51<Ceno>oh okay
00:52<Ceno>should I try adding the mentioned code to my xorg.conf?
00:53<pparadis>maybe seeing if everything works properly with the new "default" xorg.conf file is a better first step.

00:53<Ceno>kay should I just reboot the machine and see if it works?

00:59<pparadis>do "mount -o remount,rw /" and remove that xorg.conf file, reboot again.
00:59<pparadis>that should at least get you back to where you were before.
01:00<Ceno>there is no kernel line
01:00<pparadis>ther eis, hang on
01:01*pparadis goes to boot a VM
01:01<rigved>Ceno: the kernel line has initrd in it.

01:01<pparadis>vmlinuz-2.6.[blah blah blah] is the kernel.
01:02<Ceno>initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-5-686 ?

01:05<brando753>Guys reinstalled debian on my laptop, used a encrypted LVM and everything went well, I went to upgrade to wheezy right after but the dist-upgrade failed an I couldnt even get Xserver to work...I reinstalled Debian on the encrypted volume and upgraded again to the exact same problem, I have done this a bunch of times before but for some reason its failing to upgrade on a fresh install
01:06-!-worm_ [~worm@] has joined #debian
01:06<pparadis>brando753: "failed" is not very descriptive. could you please paste relevant apt logs and such to so folks here can have a look at them?
01:07<rigved>brando753: there is a Xorg transition currently going on in wheezy. your attempts will fail till the transition is complete.
01:07<pparadis>well that does change everything :D
01:07<brando753>AH, so is it a repo thing rigved
01:07<pparadis>"it's borked"

01:07<brando753>:d it was driving me crazy @_@

01:07<brando753>I did to fresh installs and it was going to where
01:08<rigved>brando753: it says so on the #debian-next channel. also, i tried the same. installed squeeze and tried to upgrade to wheezy. failed to install X.
01:08<Ceno>okay, did those
01:08-!-Areckx [] has joined #debian
01:08<brando753>I had ATI card but I believe I was the free driver
01:08<brando753>rigved, is there anyway to upgrade right now, a non transitioned repo?
01:09<Ceno>phew, returned to functionality
01:09<pparadis>sorry you're back where you started, but at least it's usable now, right?
01:09<brando753>alright, Im glad it wasnt me screwing up somehow :d

01:11<rigved>brando753: when you do the dist-upgrade, check the packages which are supposed to be removed. it will give you a fair idea if your upgrade will be successful or not.
01:12<Ceno>ugh I think I'll give up for now even though it's driving me CRAZY
01:12<rigved>brando753: you can upgrade to wheezy without installing X at all, at least till the broken dependencies are fixed.
01:12<brando753>rigved, then install X after the upgrade or will it still break
01:13<brando753>Im using wheezy on a laptop :d
01:13<brando753>not much good a CLI does for me there
01:13<rigved>brando753: install X after the upgrade. but make sure that none of the important packages are being removed.
01:13<brando753>ok Ill give it a shot

01:20<kenifanying>hi, I try to download linuxmint iso image via "aria2c", but I get some errors, see , my system is debian squeeze, is aria2c doesn't support ipv6?
01:21<pparadis>kenifanying: i have no idea. have you tried just using something like wget?
01:22<kenifanying>pparadis, Yeah, wget is normal
01:22<kenifanying>pparadis, sorry for my english
01:22<pparadis>you might review this page -->
01:23<pparadis>or the version of aria2 in squeeze may simply not support IPv6.
01:25<pparadis>alhough as of november of 2010 it appears to support ipv6 in squeeze -->

01:26<kenifanying>pparadis, thanks, I have review that page, and /usr/share/doc/aria2/aria2c.1.html say “ --disable-ipv6[=true|false] Disable IPv6. This is useful if you have to use broken DNS and want to avoid terribly slow AAAA record lookup. Default: false”
01:27<kenifanying>pparadis, so , it seems that the version of aria2 in squeeze is support ipv6

01:49<kenifanying>mido, sorry it's should be unix network programming 3rd by W. Richard Stevens
01:49<mido>iam a beginner in linux
01:49<pparadis>this channel is really for debian-specific questions. you might try googling for "debian linux networking howto" and similar queries if you're looking for very introductory information.
01:50<pparadis>people here are always available to help with specific questions about a debian install, however.

01:51<pparadis>mido: i don't dislike you
01:52<mido>iam sorry pparadis,iam new to linus and feel fear of it
01:52<pparadis>there's nothing to fear, just lots of stuff to explore and learn.
01:53<ceno>LOTS to learn
01:53<ceno>but the more you learn, the more interesting it becomes

01:57<mido><pparadis> thank you dear ^_^
01:58<mido><ceno>,thank you dear ^_^
01:58<pparadis>no problem!
01:58<ceno>^3^ ~<3
01:58<mido><rigved>mthank you dear ^_^
01:58<rigved>mido: you are welcome.
01:59<mido>i hope you help me as i be in need to you my friends
01:59<ceno>the more people who know to use linux, the better.
01:59<subgirl>ceno i beg to differ it gets more complicatet every year in the past you could configure everything via config files but lately most of those files eighter disapeares or are renderd useless in favor of automatisms
02:00<ceno>I suppose I've just had my own bad experience with that
02:00<ceno>but I still like getting down into the configs
02:01<ceno>like my .bashrc custom prompt, modified sources.list, done tons of configs editing so far
02:01<ceno>it's not so bad
02:01<ceno>I've yet to learn vi but I'm comfortable in nano
02:01<ceno>I grew up using DOS since I was like 3 years old, command line is familiar and comfy
02:01<pparadis>subgirl: config files don't generally disappear, but there are indeed more automated tools these days that edit config files. i am not a fan of such tools in general, and thus typically choose not to use them.
02:02<pparadis>i'm also a server guy, and do very little desktop configuration. from my perspective, on the server side, things are quite manageable.
02:03<ceno>yeah. I like to be able to ssh into my machine... I use mpeg123 and play mp3s remotely on my desktop haha
02:03<ceno>it's so cool
02:03<ceno>I LOVE LINUXXXX!!!
02:04<ceno>I wish I had learned how to use it way earlier in life.
02:05<pparadis>well, i'm guilty of riding the train as well, but i should point out that there is #debian-offtopic for general conversation :)

02:08<mido>guys,i downloaded debian 605 DVD,4.4 GB
02:08<mido>i need to install it in my HP personal laptop
02:08<mido>my dvd drive was broken
02:09<mido>my flash memory is only 4 GB
02:09<mido>any solution available?
02:09<pparadis>mido: given this state of affairs, and especially since you're just starting to learn, you might consider installing it in a VM in virtualbox or something first.
02:09-!-melmothX [] has joined #debian
02:09<pparadis>many people use that method to start learning.
02:10-!-mode/#debian [+l 482] by debhelper
02:10<mido>no,i already gave it a try and loved it today
02:10<mido>i've to install it and start playing around
02:11<pparadis>you don't have to install from the DVD image. you could get the netinstall image, which will only download and install the items you want.
02:11<mido>i installed it since 13 hours in virtualbox
02:11<pparadis>the netinstall image is much smaller
02:12<mido>if so,will it be upgraded to DVD later?
02:13<pparadis>when you install from the netinstall image, you can still install things like a desktop, etc. then you simply use synaptic (or apt on the command line, whatever you want) to install additional packages.
02:13<subgirl>so i get it that noone knows how to get xrandr to default to a more "conservative" refresh rate like 75 Hz and not set it to a dreamland value of 130 Hz just because the monitors EDID claims the monitor could do it?
02:14<pparadis>subgirl: did you check into the ModeLine setting?
02:15<mido>i love you pparadis 0_o thanks
02:15<pparadis>mido: no problem!
02:16<subgirl>pparadis yes i did but it seems taht i can only add ones but what i would need to do is to delete everything over 75 Hz which seems to be impossible
02:16<pparadis>i would think you'd be able to specify exactly which modelines should apply to a device. it's not something i've messed with any time in recent history, though.
02:18-!-bluewater [] has joined #debian
02:18<mido>i have a side question,do all of you prefer reading e-books or paperprints?
02:19<depianpai>once i got an android tablet i stopped reading paperback
02:19<pparadis>depends on the subject matter. if it's a programming reference, i usually prefer dead trees. for a lot of other stuff i prefer ebooks.
02:19<subgirl>pparadis: well yes i can add modlines to it but it still keeps the ones generated with the monitors EDID
02:20-!-hele_ [] has joined #debian

02:20<depianpai>anyone know of a website that will allow debian fonts to look much nicer ?
02:21<pparadis>depianpai: there's a config option under apperance settings or somewhere to let you set the antialiasing method for fonts.

03:41<mido>when i accessed debian for downloading DEBIAN squeez in torrents i've found (debian 6.0.5) torrent 1,torrent 2,torrent 3,.....till torrent 8
03:42<mido>there are any different between 1,2,...8?
03:42<pparadis>mido: i'd recommend saving yourself some trouble and just using HTTP to download the netinstall image.
03:42<nza>you probably just need the 1st torrent, the others include everything in the repository
03:42<nza>also that
03:43-!-Rehnquist [] has joined #debian
03:43<mido>thanks pparadis and naz
03:45<mido>naz,you mean that the whole debian software broke into the whole 8 torrents?
03:45<mido>and that every torrent has the mais suit of necesary software?
03:46<pparadis>mido: if i remember the earlier conversation correctly, i believe you really just want to use the netinstall image.
03:47<mido>yes you recommended me to download it
03:47<brando753>So is there any way to properly reinstall debian on an encrypted LVM by just giving it your password? I kind of got it to work with rescuemode, but when I reinstalled again and redid the /boot directory it failed to ask for the password at boot and just drops to busybox any ideas?
03:47<mido>but it was just question coz it puzzled me to know the differences only not other pparadis
03:47<pparadis>brando753: in short, using the conventional installer route, i do not believe there is.
03:48<brando753>Thats 10 more hours because of my failed upgrade :_(
03:48<pparadis>i don't imagine the installer is particularly geared toward that use case.
03:48<brando753>when do they believe the xserver repo problem will be fixed?
03:49<pparadis>when an operating system is installed on an encrypted LVM setup, the understanding is generally that the operator has good reason to want things "done right" and therefore probably is not interested in preserving anything that is already on those filesystems.
03:49-!-kriller__ [] has joined #debian
03:49<brando753>pparadis but those filesystems are already encrypted
03:49<brando753>from my previous install
03:49-!-ompaul [~ompaul@] has joined #debian
03:50<pparadis>i have no idea regarding the wheezy repo deal. this is also why i don't run wheezy on systems that i use intensively, preferring to use backports for specific packages instead when necessary.
03:50<brando753>I just would need to decrypt it for it to access the LVM
03:50<brando753>most of my things dont have backports :(
03:50<pparadis>brando753: i don't think you understood what i was saying before. an OS install on encrypted drives is intended to be a "fresh environment" and i cannot imagine more than a handful of people on the planet would want to reuse a pre-encrypted LVM setup for that task.
03:51<brando753>its a ten hour long process :_(
03:51-!-DebianLover [] has joined #debian
03:51<brando753>and I dont even know if it will be successful because I still need to upgrade to wheezy
03:52<pparadis>you do have the option of doing a normal install and later switching to manually setting up crypto on your data partitions, although depending on why you're using crypto to begin with that may not be a desirable route.
03:53<pparadis>most of the time spent on the initial crypto setup is writing random data across the disk(s).
03:53<pparadis>you may not care about that. you may be okay with just writing zeros across everything, which is much faster and arguably quite secure against any kind of non-insane potential forensic analysis.
03:53<brando753>I could do that just to see if the upgrade with xserver not installed then installed later will work
03:54<pparadis>i am, however, not aware of a way to tell the installer to use zero wiping instead of random data.
03:54-!-lesagjea [] has joined #debian
03:54<pparadis>you certainly could do a standard install now for testing purposes and then redo it "for real" later.
03:55<ompaul>pparadis: open a terminal ctrl alt f2 or whatever and hhit enter before you do the install cat /dev/uradom > /dev/install-disk-goes-here does that work?
03:55<brando753>I think I will do that :/ what a time for the repo to be all borked up :d cost me a whole day of problems
03:56<pparadis>ompaul: that'll zero the stuff all right, but i presume the crypto setup stages will still want to do a random data wip.
03:56<pparadis>wipe, even
03:56<ompaul>pparadis: most likely
03:56<brando753>I could cancel the wipe, but I preffer it does it correctly over timely :d
03:57<ompaul>brando753: don't blame repos, you are using testing, and if you are using a testing cd you are asking for difficulty, install squeeze (if the hardware is too new for that use kmuto's installer) and then get on with it
03:57<pparadis>brando753: here's what you can do.
03:57<ompaul>then dist-upgrade
03:57<brando753>ompaul, the dist-upgrade caused the bork :d
03:57<pparadis>brando753: you could just zero the disk first on a live CD from /dev/zero, then cancel the wipe during the install.
03:58<ompaul>brando753: from what to what?
03:58<brando753>squeeze to wheezy
03:58<rigved>brando753: IIRC, there is a wheezy debian-installer. it is currently in alpha state, but you may try it.
03:58<pparadis>of course, since you've already dumped random data across your entire disk from the earlier install, and i presume you don't have anything sensitive on it anyhow, i don't see why you'd even care about rewiping it again.
03:58<brando753>rigved, hmm, I was thinking of that
03:58<ompaul>rigved: never ever suggested in irc :) it is for testing the installer as for the install being sane that is never the case
03:59<ompaul>brando753: that is not the recommended route, squeeze -> wheezy is the only suggested route
03:59<brando753>but for now xserver is borked on that route :_(
03:59<rigved>ompaul: ok. got it.
03:59<ompaul>brando753: also be aware that wheezy is not a release, it is testing, things brake
03:59<brando753>I know :d
03:59<pparadis>the alpha wheezy installer blew up on me a few days ago on a test system, actually.
04:00<brando753>ompaul, but I would at least like to get to wheezy
04:00<ompaul>brando753: when they break you get to keep the pieces, if you have done nothing to this box other than talk, have you done this in the last six hours: su - apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade ?
04:00<ompaul>brando753: if an upgrade fails badly you can always try it 6 hours later
04:00<brando753>I reinstalled
04:00<ompaul>the time it takes the mirrors to sync
04:01<brando753>and now it wont boot because grub wont decrypt
04:01-!-xharx_ [] has joined #debian
04:01<brando753>so pparadis the thing was just writing random data?
04:01<brando753>thats all I miss if I cancel that
04:01<mido>is debian squeez's kernel version is safe or it is better to update it?
04:02<brando753>cause that took like 10 Hours O.O
04:02<pparadis>brando753: if i were you, i would just wait a bit longer to let the mirrors sort themselves out, do the install again but skip the wipe (it's already been scrubbed), and be happy.
04:02<brando753>I figured I would atleast get debian squeze on there
04:02<ompaul>brando753: lets just kill that disk cat /dev/zero > /dev/sda
04:02-!-qerter [] has joined #debian
04:02<ompaul>then do a fresh install
04:02<brando753>poor hardrive
04:02<ompaul>brando753: you only need to do that for 2 minutes
04:02<ompaul>and it will nuke partitions
04:03<ompaul>in fact 20 seconds would be long enough :)
04:03<ompaul>then you can reboot and start the install
04:03<pparadis>brando753: since you want to do full disk crypto on your stuff, keep things like this in mind as well -->
04:03<pparadis>better epoxy a bunch of stuff in place man
04:04<brando753>Yea I know about the ram problems :d
04:04<brando753>thats why we have the secure delete package

04:34<ompaul>-y will break your box when you most needed
04:35<bluepurplegreen758>ah, so i could keep a virtual machine and upgrade it first?
04:35<pparadis>always test important updates on a test system before applying them to a production system. that's just good common sense.
04:35<pparadis>and of course always keep great backups no matter what.
04:36<ompaul>bluepurplegreen758: what if there is a change between your vm and when you go to do the live system, no the best way is to have a place to drop your home directories safely on that box or somewhere else
04:36<pparadis>well, this does of course assume that a given test environment is kept in sync with a given production environment.
04:36<ompaul>bluepurplegreen758: wheezy and sid on a production box is a high risk activity, don't do it, if you have data you need to keep ... don't

04:47<bluepurplegreen758>the newer kernel does a few things for me. on my dm-crypt'ed drive, the 2.6 kernel makes me have to type a character, erase it, then move on with my password, otherwise it misses the first stroke, when i boot, and the new one shuts my system down properly where the old one hangs at the end

04:50<dpkg>The enter key is not a substitute for punctuation. Hitting enter unnecessarily makes it difficult to follow what you are saying. Consider using ',', '. ', ';', '...', '---', or ':' instead. If you hit enter too often, you will be autokicked by debhelper for flooding the channel.
04:50<bluepurplegreen758>haha, i feel like im the only person on the planet that loves gnome-shell
04:50<brando753>ompaul, ...
04:51<pparadis>brando753: you really should spend a few days without X, and also it's offtopic but what the hell, irssi really is great -->
04:52-!-sney [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:52*daemonkeeper does not know a single reason why one would like to live without X. And I have about 20 shells open any time of the day.
04:52<brando753>pparadis, I love just using a terminal
04:52<brando753>however the laptop really needs a DE
04:53<pparadis>daemonkeeper: oh i don't live without X at all! i just fired gimp up in X a bit ago, actually. X running on my macbook, that is, and yeah i've got a ton of shells open too :D
04:53<bluepurplegreen758>Anyone have any idea why I can connect to WEP using ifconfig, but not an open network? It's really bothering me.
04:54<brando753>that would bother me aswell
04:54<ompaul>bluepurplegreen758: wep might as well not be secured
04:54<bluepurplegreen758>Its making doing net install difficult because I only have wireless
04:54<bluepurplegreen758>I know for a fact its nto secure because I hacked it myself to use it lol
04:55<bluepurplegreen758>lol, i use hacking veyr lightly as its not exactly knowledge-intense haha
04:55<brando753>wifi setup through the CLI is always a PITA
04:55<pparadis>bluepurplegreen758: knock on your neighbor's door and politely ask to run some CAT-5 through his window.
04:56<ompaul>bluepurplegreen758: more important the open network, there are many reasons you can't connect to them, one is they have stupid things happen to them, I know a pub where we can't get access until they reset the router
04:56<pparadis>you laugh, i've done that. 10 years ago.
04:56<brando753>no way
04:56<ompaul>never laugh at networks that work

04:59<pparadis>brando753: no particular reasons aside from irssi working well for me, and being familiar with it and its plugins.
05:00<pparadis>i don't suffer from sns, so when i find something that works well, i tend to keep using it ;)
05:00<bluepurplegreen758>lol, i'm using pidgin right now.
05:00<brando753>alot of people have been pushing me to use weechat over my working xchat :d

05:08<ompaul>well if you need them for esoteric hardware you know that it is there
05:08<bluepurplegreen758>trisquel did have an b43-open driver that i had never used before, and it was nice to have wireless work out-of-box, but the connection dropped every few minutes and made me cry. lol

05:15<pparadis>i run chromium on the debian desktops i maintain, which are only ever accessed over freenx anyhow, but oddly i run firefox locally.
05:16<bluepurplegreen758>I wouldnt run chromium forever because they had no https everywhere, but now that there is a version for it, and noscript, i might see how I like it. I'm pretty loyal to mozilla though.
05:16<brando753>hey pparadis how long has that xserver problem been, I just noticed the topic in #debian-next was updated last on May 1
05:17<brando753>I switch between chrome, firefox, w3m, and lynx

08:52<Walex>danlii: it depends on a *lot* of factors. For example whether you have used exactly the right options for the sound driver, as Intel have a habit of doing slightly different variants.
08:52<debian-novice>I have small question, is it possible to install vmware server on debian 5.0.8. version, and if you know about any good manual?
08:52<Walex>danlii: if it is not that, maybe there is a 44.1k to 48k conversion in between that should not happen, or the ALSA buffering is a not quite right and jitter happens.
08:53<Walex>debian-novice: depends which VMware server product. The old 2.x series works on Debian 5, but it is a pretty bad release

08:54<debian-novice>Walex: I have downloaded VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.i386.gz, but I cannot find a way to install it....
08:56<Walex>debian-novice: you unpack it under '/opt' and then you run a perl script to configure it, as described in the manual.
08:57<debian-novice>I found some instructions on howtoforge website, but that's for debian 4.0 Etch, idk if it's same as for my version

08:58-!-abdulkarim [~abdulkari@] has joined #debian
08:58<dentifrice>I just tried to run a dist-upgrade on a server, and dpkg dies with an input/output error
08:59<dentifrice>so I tried to look in /var/log/syslog, but rsyslogd doesn't write to the file since a few days and when restarting the daemon, I get "rsyslogd/etc/init.d/rsyslog: 136: start-stop-daemon: Input/output error"
08:59<dentifrice>any clue what may be happening, or where to start looking? the ext4fs is still mounted 'rw', and I can write to other portions of the filesystem w/o trouble
09:00-!-mode/#debian [+l 517] by debhelper
09:06<movl>dentifrice: maybe it's a hardware issue
09:06<movl>try smartctl
09:06<dentifrice>did that
09:06<dentifrice>both disks seem to be doing fine
09:07<dentifrice>I don't want to risk rebooting the box
09:09<dentifrice>dmesg tells me about ext4 problems :/
09:10<movl>boot a livecd and fsck
09:10<dentifrice>yes, will do so - it's a server though, so it's a little different, I'm not in the serverroom ;)

13:20<debian-novice>hi, can virtualbox be installed on Debian Squeeze 6.0.5 GNU, but I don't have any GUI....
13:21<ompaul>debian-novice: in that case ssh -C
13:22<ompaul>you can run as many ssh sessions as the max for one of the two boxes involved
13:23<peterS>debian-novice: if you want the gui, install 'virtualbox-qt'
13:23<debian-novice>ompaul the thing is that I want to install windows OS on Debian OS, so I need vmware or virtualbox....but the thing is all instructions for installations are for GUI OSes...
13:24<peterS>wait ... your question is a bit unclear. do you _want_ a gui, or not?
13:24<debian-novice>peterS I have Debian without GUI, only terminal, and I want to install it possible?
13:25-!-dogi [] has joined #debian
13:25<peterS>debian-novice: oh, sure. though virtualbox is a bit awkward in that respect - if you boot a VM with a GUI, it seems to expect you to leave your GUI session open - AFAIK you can't disconnect and reconnect to it easily
13:26<debian-novice>peterS what do you suggest then
13:26<peterS>debian-novice: you say the debian box does not have a local GUI. are you accessing it from some other system that _does_ have a GUI?
13:26<peterS>because in order to install Windows, I guess you need a GUI _somewhere_.
13:26<debian-novice>peterS no, I connect to server through putty
13:26<debian-novice>so no GUI
13:27<peterS>debian-novice: I'm not sure how virtualbox accommodates that arrangement. It is possible that you can get access to vbox consoles through VNC or something, but I'm not sure how it works
13:28-!-jesusprubio [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
13:28<peterS>what you _can_ do is install a local X11 server on the system you run putty on, and then probably tunnel it via putty (it has an option for that, I'm pretty sure)
13:28<peterS>but it does mean the whole time the windows system is up, your putty session has to stay connected, or you'll lose contact with the windows gui

13:33<peterS>debian-novice: honestly what I'd probably do in your situation is to start a VNC servre on the debian box. Then connect to it using a VNC client on the system you run putty from. Then run virtualbox inside that session.

13:48<peterS>debian-novice: (1) install 'vnc4server' and 'virtualbox-qt' on your debian box. (2) Find a VNC client for your Windows box - is as good as any.
13:48<peterS>debian-novice: (3) run 'vncserver' on the debian box. The first time you run it it will prompt you for a password. make something up, between 6 and 8 characters.
13:49<peterS>debian-novice: (4) it will then print something like "new desktop is on myhostname:1". You can now run the VNC client and connect to "myhostname:1". It will prompt you for the password you stored earlier.
13:49<peterS>debian-novice: at that point, inside the VNC session, you can run 'virtualbox' and manage it normally. you can connect and disconnect to the VNC session as needed.
13:50<peterS>debian-novice: if the client can't connect to "myhostname:1", it might be hostname resolution (try the IP address instead of the host name), or it might be firewalling - VNC needs port 5900 open.

14:03<perlwizard>did changes become active?
14:04<peterS>a common corollary to that: note that the declared group membership only matters at the point you log in. if you change it for yourself, you have to log out and back in
14:04<perlwizard>usually requires relogin (ie restart of X session or reboot)
14:04<peterS>(at the point you log in, part of the process is to read the group configuration and actually set it up for the processes that are logging in)

19:40<Spidey_>I had to manually configure it; it said that my network is probably not using the DHCP protocol (which I know it is).
19:41<Spidey_>The title of the message telling me this was "Network autoconfiguration failed".
19:41<pparadis>is the machine you're doing the install on located behind a NAT device that is providing DHCP?
19:42-!-Guest1683 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
19:42<pparadis>for one, this could be a bad network cable.
19:43-!-Spidey__ [] has joined #debian
19:43<pparadis>have you tried a different network cable?
19:44<pparadis>also, does the machine you're installing on have multiple ethernet interfaces?
19:44-!-ao2 [~u@2001:1418:117::1] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
19:44<Spidey__>No, but I have tried my internal wireless.
19:45<pparadis>when asking for help, it's generally good to provide the kind of information i've been asking about up front :)
19:45<pparadis>otherwise we have to pay 20 questions to get the basics down.
19:45<pparadis>what kind of machine are you installing this on?
19:46<pparadis>internal wireless may well not work with the installer because of limited driver support there.
19:46<Spidey__>Actually, I think that my internal wireless is refered to as eth0 (which I assume is ethernet). I am installing it on a laptop; a Dell XPS M140.
19:47<pparadis>so when you run the installer, it asks you which interface you want to configure, right?
19:47-!-matthew [] has joined #debian

19:49-!-Spidey_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
19:49<pparadis>Spidey__: the easiest thing to test first would be to just try another network cable. are you plugging into a device that does NAT and provides DHCP?
19:50<pparadis>or are you plugging it directly into a cable or DSL modem, which you expect to do DHCP?
19:50-!-Guest1685 [] has quit []
19:50<pparadis>i ask only because some cable/DSL modems provide wireless as well, but i don't know how your network is set up yet.
19:52<Spidey__>I'm plugging it into my DSL(I believe) modem. It has always done DHCP before with wireless and ethernet cable.
19:52-!-zophy [~zophy@] has joined #debian

19:53-!-ilven_ [] has joined #debian
19:53<pparadis>have you used this laptop with that exact setup before, as in that exact device?
19:54-!-byonk [] has joined #debian
19:55<pparadis>you might try power cycling the DSL modem first, then trying again. what's happening here may be that the debian installer is detecting your devices fine (it sounds like it is), but your DSL modem doesn't want to play nice.
19:55<Spidey__>This is my first time installing debian period. I have installed xubuntu and linux mint lxde on this laptop before, however.
19:55<pparadis>with exactly the same setup, connected directly to that DSL modem?
19:56<Spidey__>Well, with wireless.
19:56<craigevil>ubuntu and LMDE come with firmware that isnt in the debian installer
19:57<pparadis>you could try disabling the wireless first and seeing if the install works, then re-enable it and configure it later.
19:57<Spidey__>I'm using the "netinst" image.
19:58<pparadis>right. i mean disable the wireless by using the toggle switch that the laptop likely has, or in the BIOS, then doing the install.
19:58<pparadis>then re-enabling it afterward and configuring it.
19:58-!-zem [] has joined #debian
19:58-!-xharx_ [] has joined #debian
19:59<craigevil>if you have a usb flash drive, google the hardware, if it needs firmware, download the .deb from the installer will find it and you should be able to connect

23:56<dizzylizzy>darn it :(
23:57<dizzylizzy>when i installed i put everything in one partition
23:57<dizzylizzy>i should have separated / and /home at least
23:57<dizzylizzy>the thing is every single gosh darn time I do separate partitions, I always run out of space in one with plenty in the other
23:58<dizzylizzy>sometimes / gets full because of /usr, sometimes /home gets full-ish and there's tons of free space in /
