03:29<toobaz>Hello. I'm running testing, and after the last upgrade metacity doesn't read my preferences (i.e. theme and most importantly shortcuts). Indeed, I see in the Debian changelog for 1:2.34.3-1 (BTW not the last) "Install GSettings schemas and GConf conversion script". And I do see my shortcuts with gconf-editor, but not with dconf-editor. Did something go wrong, or did I miss something?

03:51-!-toobaz [] has joined #debian
03:51-!-kriller [] has joined #debian
03:51<scientes>well you should download the source, and figure out why the conversion script didn't work
03:51<scientes>and file a bug
03:51<toobaz>scientes: but I don't even see any "conversion script" in the metacity package
03:51<scientes>well apparently it should be there
03:51<scientes>probably in the postinst file
03:51<toobaz>I guess not
03:51<toobaz>those are _user_ configs

03:54<misery>(and how to regenerate it, because its wrong)
03:55<scientes>misery, did you try dpkg -S /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules
03:55<misery>dpkg: /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules not found.
03:55<dpkg>misery: bugger all, i dunno
03:56<scientes>ok its autogen---i think udev generates that
03:56<craigevil>you can edit the file
03:56<misery>dpkg-reconfigure udev did nothing :/
03:57<scientes>edit it directly
03:57<scientes>its in /etc

03:57-!-yip [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
03:57<scientes>just remove what is screwing things up?
03:58<scientes>all that is suppose to do is cache devices that have been attached, so that when they are attached later they get the same name
03:58<misery>that will be my next step after a few google searches on the subject, methinks...
03:58-!-perlwizard [~x@] has joined #debian
03:58<scientes>it shouldn't screw up anything
03:58<craigevil>yes it can, its the weird file that changes eth1 to eth2 etc
03:59<scientes>i guess...thats the -net.rules
04:00<craigevil>ah right wrong file lol its 4am here
04:01<scientes>ffff its 1AM here

04:33<zorb0ne>how do I remove proftpd after i've installed it onto inetd.
04:34<zorb0ne>I want to remove and reinstall it.
04:34<scientes>zorb0ne, apt-get --reinstall install
04:34<scientes>if you want to purge conf files then do apt-get purge, fallowed by apt-get install
04:35<vortek>is there anything debian wont do heh
04:35<scientes>vortek, Debian wont violate your four freedoms?
04:35<zorb0ne>scientes: so, aptitude --reinstall install proftpd?
04:36<scientes>zorb0ne, that will keep your old configuration files, so if that is where the problem is, it wont fix it
04:36<vortek>whats a good place to buy hi end severs for debian, lik non intel hi eend cpu's?
04:36<zorb0ne>I _just_ installed it, I haven't messed around with any config files.
04:37<scientes>vortek, anywhere basically?
04:37<scientes>zorb0ne, ok, then do that
04:37<vortek>i dont know what to buy, i just want super performance
04:37-!-aranax [~aranax@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
04:37<vortek>non intel
04:38<vortek>something faster
04:38<scientes>vortek, you just want a 6 core phenom II then, for relatively cheap non-intel performance
04:38<scientes>but this is kinda off-topic
04:39<vortek>what di u type to get kernel messages ? dmesg?
04:39<scientes>vortek, a good strategy is to go into a store with a livecd...errr i'd go with a 3.2 kernel, not the 2.6.32 squeeze, and see if it works in the store
04:39<scientes>zorb0ne, apt-get --reinstall install proftpd
04:39<scientes>not aptitude
04:39<scientes>with aptitude its aptitude reinstall proftpd

04:41-!-se7en [] has joined #debian
04:41<scientes>however the real problems are always with wifi and graphics
04:41<gigix>vortek, agree with scientes, just try and see
04:41<vortek>what do i type to get kernel error msgs or kernel boot logs
04:41<scientes>vortek, dmesg, and /var/log/kern.log
04:42<vortek>cuase wireless is giving me errors
04:42<scientes>vortek, pastebin lspci
04:42<zorb0ne>I removed proftpd dir and from init.d
04:42<vortek>could be the reason why it wont conect
04:42<zorb0ne>vortek: ndiswrapper sucks.
04:42<scientes>zorb0ne, that last pastebin doesn't work for me
04:42<scientes>zorb0ne, ndiswrapper is not needed anymore for any wireless that i know of
04:43<scientes>even broadcom came around and is now working on free drivers
04:43<scientes>"Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at"
04:43-!-NIN [] has joined #debian
04:43<vortek>zorb0ne: i want to use the linux drivers, i may ahveto compile a kernel to get these
04:43<scientes>use zorb0ne
04:43<zorb0ne>scientes: k i'll re-pastebin.
04:43<scientes>vortek, 3.2 is in the backports, and will be shipped with wheezy
04:43<scientes>thats why i said that, and not, like 3.4 or something
04:44-!-alexander [] has quit [Quit: Verlassend]
04:44<vortek>yea i use that but the kernel gives me wifi errors
04:44<zorb0ne>scientes: k, I will from now on.

04:46<scientes>or if that doesn't work dpkg -r proftpd-basic
04:47<scientes>you could also add echo "#!/bin/true" > /etc/init.d/proftpd
04:47<scientes>and then try again
04:47<scientes>might have to do that in a editor, cause of the !

04:50<zorb0ne>the second echo returned.
04:50<vortek>it only wokrs in windows
04:50<craigevil>its uses adobe flash
04:50<scientes>flash works on debian, its in non-free
04:50<vortek>ok thanxs
04:50<zorb0ne>You have to plug it in your browser.
04:51<vortek>is that hrd?
04:51<scientes>(or rather its in contrib, but all it does it download the binary from adobe)
04:51<craigevil>apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
04:51<scientes>vortek, no, you just install the package, and it takes care of the details---but be aware that flash is a privacy and security risk
04:51<craigevil>!adobe flash
04:51<dpkg>Adobe Flash Player is <non-free>. The easiest way to install it is with the flashplugin-nonfree <contrib> package for squeeze and later releases. There is also a flashplayer-mozilla package in <dmm> (non-free section). WARNING: installing flashplugin-nonfree will NOT automatically keep the plugin updated. Read more on . See also <flash amd64>, <bdo>, <dmm>.
04:52<zorb0ne>If the apt-get doesn't work, dload the tar and do it manually, you just have to put the plugin in your browsers dir and load it into the browser vortek.
04:52<zorb0ne>vortek: In your browsers plugin dir.

04:53<scientes>zorb0ne, did that finial echo line let you uninstall proftpd
04:54<craigevil>why the hell would you manually download it? installing flashplugin-nonfree or flashplayer-mozilla from dmm always work
04:55<scientes>zorb0ne, chmod +x /etc/init.d/proftpd

04:55<scientes>zorb0ne, actually you should apt-get purge, and then apt-get install
04:56<scientes>but you might still need to do that
04:56<scientes>its smarter than me
04:56-!-lbt_ [~david@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:56<zorb0ne>i to tupid to
04:56<scientes>just try dpkg -r proftpd

04:57<dpkg>You are person #1 to send an unparseable request, zorb0ne
04:57<scientes>just try dpkg -r proftpd-basic
04:57<scientes>it looks like it actualy did reinstall
04:57<scientes>but you need to remove and then reinstal to get that file back
04:58<scientes>ok, now remove that init.d file
04:58<scientes>rm /etc/init.d/proftpd
04:58<scientes>and then install apt-get install proftpd

05:00<scientes>well the problem with ftp, is that passwords with it are bad, cause they go over the clear, meaning anyone can sniff them and get your password
05:01<scientes>openssh fixes that
05:01<zorb0ne>Yeah, so sftp uses encryption.
05:01<zorb0ne>just apt-get install openssh-server ?
05:01<scientes>and you can connect to sftp with "connect to server" in gnome from the file menu
05:01<scientes>yeah that will do it
05:01<scientes>and thats really all it takes
05:01-!-It9001 [] has quit []
05:01<scientes>i use public/private ssh keys instead of passwords for extra security, but you don't need to do that
05:03-!-vortek [] has quit []
05:03<zorb0ne>how do I go about setting up a user:pass for openssh-server, it seems I already have it.
05:03<scientes>also note that sftp is often called just "ssh"
05:03<scientes>zorb0ne, its the same as your login password
05:03<scientes>for your user account
05:04<scientes>and if you only use file access, you might want to turn off the remote shell feature
05:05-!-kilelme [~kilelme@] has joined #debian
05:06<scientes>(not sure how to do that)
05:06<zorb0ne>scientes: so the ftpd runs on port 25 then?
05:06<scientes>port 22
05:06<scientes>its not compatible with the ftp protocol
05:07<scientes>but its ubiquitous in the *nix world
05:08-!-leoleen [~leoleen@] has joined #debian
05:09<zorb0ne>hmmmm, scientes: I'm using the ftp to installa new theme in Drupal and it's saying 'Cannot connect'.
05:09<scientes>zorb0ne, well that is not ftp, its sftp/ssh
05:10<scientes>from gnome its file-->connect to server-->ssh
05:10<scientes>or in older gnome's just enter "ssh://user@host/"
05:11<scientes>or sftp://user@host"

06:32<reklipz>I have an ATI Radeon HD 5870 graphics card. Is it recommended I use the fglrx proprietary driver, or the open source radeon driver? I intend to do some OpenGL development with the machine.
06:33<Zaba>then you need fglrx
06:34<Zaba>because the open source driver doesn't even support opengl 3.0 yet

06:37<ratnick>are usb drivers compiled into kernel 2.6.32-45, or are they installed as a module?

06:37<ompaul>lsusb might tell you
06:37<ompaul>sorry lsmod
06:37<reklipz>Zaba: Oh hi, :). shows driver = 3.0, hardware = 4.2 with environment variable R600_STREAMOUT=1. I'll go with the bet that fglrx is better, though. Do you happen to know the difference between the radeon and the radeonhd driver?
06:37<Zaba>reklipz, radeonhd is dead and obsolete
06:38<reklipz>Zaba: Thought so; due to the source release by AMD. Cool.
06:39<Zaba>reklipz, and yes, you still want fglrx for anything substantial involving opengl. Open source drivers lack if not in features, then in performance. They might be getting 'there', but they aren't 'there' yet.
06:39<babilen>!tell reklipz -about radeon
06:39<babilen>!tell reklipz -about fglrx dkms
06:41<babilen>reklipz: I would recommend to also discuss this in #radeon and #fglrx on -- Please note that fglrx 10 is in squeeze (current Debian stable) which is not the newest version released upstream.
06:41<Zaba>and the newest version doesn't work with xorg server 1.12 anyway.
06:41<Zaba>(that's not counting the 12.6 beta - which just crashes with it due to a silly bug)
06:42<Zaba>well, I just keep xorg server on hold on my laptop
06:42<babilen>Zaba: That is, however, irrelevant for squeeze :)

07:17<awwwwwh>guys i've screwed my repos
07:18<TCW>at least I do not find any hints in the docs how to do it *right*
07:18<abrotman>TCW: that URL above?
07:19<awwwwwh>i've used on debian stable an untrusted backports repository to install the latest vlc 2 and now i can't revert to the old packages
07:19<awwwwwh>i've removed the repo... updated and it still shows the 2 packages
07:19<TCW>abrotman, I guess I have read that too, I am talking about all docs I could find, local and on the net
07:19<abrotman>awwwwwh: using apt-get or aptitude ?
07:19<TCW>awwwwwh, remove / purge vlc and then reinstall
07:19<awwwwwh>could anyone help me how to recover from this ? the unstable vlc messed up everything
07:20<abrotman>sounds like *you* messed up everything :)
07:20<TCW>awwwwwh, define "everything"
07:20<awwwwwh>but if i purge, it will still show vlc 2 package
07:20<abrotman>awwwwwh: man dpkg .. search for "unavailable" ?
07:20<awwwwwh>hold on, i'm purging in terminal
07:20<TCW>awwwwwh, and what is the issue with that?

07:22<awwwwwh>gigix, vlc is installed
07:22<awwwwwh>i meant dependencies
07:22<abrotman>awwwwwh: so you updated half your system to testing? and now you want to go back to stable ?
07:22<gigix>seems to me :S

07:23<gigix>most likely the video codecs and stuff
07:23<awwwwwh>but the thing is, the stable vlc is not compatible now with these new dependencies
07:23<awwwwwh>holly crap i did it
07:24<gigix>awwwwh what about "sudo apt-get autoremove vlc*" to remove all vlc + its dependencies ?
07:24<awwwwwh>now it shows version 1.3 in aptitude after v2 purge
07:24<gigix>good now install the classic vlc and check playback's working
07:24<awwwwwh>but i don't understand why after removing the untrusted repo, it still showed v2 as the latest version ---- this is what fooled me thinking i can't revert to v1.3
07:25<gigix>the presence or not of the repo does not change the fact that the packages are installed
07:25<awwwwwh>now at least i know i have to purge next time to see the old available package

07:25<gigix>so they have to be shown in synaptic
07:26<awwwwwh>yea but it should show in synaptic - v2 installed and 1.3 latest available version
07:26<Nemoder>if dmm messes something up in testing I just search for packages and replace them: aptitude search '~S ~i (~multimedia)'
07:26<awwwwwh>but it works like a machine i guess... not logic for it considering numbers
07:26<abrotman>Nemoder: he used packages from testing
07:26<Nemoder> aptitude search '~S ~i (~testing)' then
07:27<gigix>awwwwwh, since the package shares the same name
07:27<gigix>it's impossible
07:27<awwwwwh>i guess that's the reason you can't use testing repos in stable... they don't let you install. this untrusted repo i used forced the installation of the testing dependencies. that's what hapened
07:27<gigix>that's why for example nvidia-drivers have different suffixes for different versions
07:28<awwwwwh>i'm still new with linux ,,, it's all weird to me

08:19-!-m0RrE_ is now known as m0RrE
08:19<abrotman>alex_: if it's a learning process, you sohuld be doing learning, not asking basic questions here
08:19<Nemoder>alex_: at the very least do it the right way and build from debian's source instead of tarball, less headaches
08:20<abrotman>or just install the package and be done with it
08:20<abrotman>he doesn't seem capable of building from source without asking a thousand questions
08:21<alex_>thankyou all for giving me something to chew on

12:10<Tohie>One last question can I uncomment the repo's after upgrading or will this just break my system?
12:10<abrotman>you don't need squeeze-updates on wheezy
12:11<Tohie>Ok but what about multimedia and spotify>
12:11<abrotman>leave them commented for now .. see if you need them later, you may not
12:11<Tohie>Ok thank you
12:11<abrotman>don't forget you'll ned a security source soon
12:12<Tohie>I plan on upgrading to testing again after wheezy goes stable, I will not need the security source then will I?
12:13<abrotman>nope, testing doesn't have true security support

12:13<Tohie>Thank you for all the help
12:13<abrotman>but it should be advised that after release, testing turns into a messy place
12:14<Tohie>So wait a month or two, then jump to testing is advised?

12:14<abrotman>wait until a) you feel it's stable enough you don't have to worry about lots of stuff breaking b) it has something you can't live without

12:18<ntrrgc>Hello, I want to remove a package. How to?
12:19<Tohie>Ok I have somewhat of a huge dependency mess now I have 66 conflicts, 52 deferred and apt-get is refusing to work is there anything I can do besides reinstalling?
12:19<abrotman>ntrrgc: didn't stew help you with this?
12:19<ntrrgc>BTW, why on the Earth php5-mysql depends on Apache? I do not use Apache. I don't want to install Apache.
12:19<ompaul>Tohie: what are you trying to update / upgrade and did you do dist-upgrade
12:19<ntrrgc>who is stew?
12:20<movl>Tohie: use aptitude
12:20<Tohie>I used aptitude full-upgrade
12:20<ompaul>Tohie: from what to what?
12:20<movl>try safe-upgrade first
12:20<Tohie>I aptitude full-upgraded from stable to wheezy
12:20<ompaul>Tohie: also pastebin in your /etc/apt/sources.list
12:21<Tohie>But the last 4 repos are commented out
12:21<ompaul>Tohie: are they?
12:21<ntrrgc>Fixed after purging php5-mysql -.-'
12:21<abrotman>ntrrgc: nm, someone else must have had a similar issue
12:22<ompaul>Tohie: apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade if they are btw you should remove anything you installed from the mm repo
12:22<ompaul>before you upgrade
12:22<Tohie>Is there anyway to view packages installed from multimedia?
12:22<ompaul>and spotify
12:23<ompaul>Tohie: what did they bring in with them ... that is most likely where your issue comes from

13:40-!-mattgandroid [] has joined #debian
13:40<ompaul>Tohie: can you run your aptitude full-upgrade and choose one of the solutions on an ongoing basis - if it breaks gnome or some such don't worry about it too much -
13:40<ompaul>Tohie: at the end of the day you can install taskselect
13:41<Tohie>I'm used to ubuntu adding ppa's, I supposed just randomly adding repo's is a bad idea in debian
13:41<ompaul>Tohie: and then you can install a "task" and that is a meta package
13:41<ompaul>so it will pull in all sorts of thing
13:42<s4br3>Tohie: Try "dpkg --configure -a" and then "apt-get -f install" a few times. It saved me last week.
13:43-!-ashams [~ashams@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:43<Tohie>So aptitude full-upgrade then +, then type I am aware this is a very bad idea then install task

13:44<ompaul>but the use of mm and spotify would have brought in whatever they thought were good things

14:10<abrotman>Tohie: why can't you finish the dist-upgrade ?
14:10<Tohie>abrotman: iirc libgstreamer was going to break apt-python
14:11<Tohie>To fix the dependencies it required perl-base to remove which would break the system
14:11-!-matt_ is now known as mattgandroid

14:15<scientes>Tohie, well qt3 is dropped from wheezy, if that has anything to do with it
14:16<Tohie>No, spotify uses libqt4-webkit it broke all of the other libqt dependencies though
14:17<chealer>scientes: it's not, at least at this point
14:17<scientes>chealer, well its in the works, i've see changes in prep for it already
14:18<Tohie>apt-get is also telling me gcc depends on itself
14:18<Tohie>gcc : Depends: gcc-4.4 (>= 4.4.5-1~) but it is not going to be installed
14:18<abrotman>Tohie: so what?
14:18<abrotman>Tohie: apt-get update;apt-get dist-upgrade in a pastebin
14:19<sney_>'gcc' is just a metapackage, the gcc-$VERSION packages are the real compilers.
14:20-!-mode/#debian [+l 501] by debhelper
14:20<abrotman>though, i only have about 10 minutes before I vamoose
14:20<Tohie>abrotman: I have switched my repo's back to squeeze, sney_: I tried to install gcc-4.4 but it says the dependency binutils is unmet but it is installed
14:20<abrotman>Tohie: in reality, if the system wants to remove all of X, you can likely install it again after the dist-upgrade
14:21<abrotman>Tohie: switching back to squeeze now is pretty much impossible without a reinstlal
14:21<sney_>Tohie: you should really do full version upgrades outside of your desktop environment, as it will replace all of it and probably interrupt your upgrade
14:21-!-jole [] has joined #debian

14:22<Tohie>sney_: A full upgrade requires perl-base to break, which is the problem I am having it at the moment
14:23<anbe>looks like Tohie has an interesting update-stress-test setup ... do you still have the initial list of packages(+versions) so that one could try to investigate the problem by rebuilding the package set and file bugs appropriately?

14:24-!-pol [] has quit [Read error: No route to host]
14:25<Tohie>Nope apt-get refuses to work, aptitude drops me into fixing it manually be selecting to ignore upgrade or purge or the automatic dependency resolution which breaks perl
14:25-!-pol [~pol@] has joined #debian
14:25<Tohie>I believe the major problems are libqt4, python-apt, libgstreamer, gnome3-keyring, virtualbox, gcc and perl
14:26<sney_>the latter 3 can be removed
14:26<Tohie>As well as bin-utils
14:26<abrotman>libqt4 can be removed
14:26<abrotman>so can libgstreamer and gnome3-keyring and vbox
14:26<abrotman>you can install them later
14:26<abrotman>sney_: latter 3?
14:26<sney_>sorry, brain fart.
14:26<Tohie>libqt4, virtualbox and gcc are definately gone
14:27<abrotman>gcc is a metapackages
14:27<abrotman>gnome3-keyring and libgstreamer can be canned
14:27<abrotman>as opposed to caned
14:27<Tohie>What provides gnome3-keyring?

15:33<broomZ>first i made own script and tried to add that, but that gives the same error
15:33<broomZ>running the command as root after boot goes without errors obviously
15:33<sney_>are you going to share the error with the rest of the class or do we have to drive to your house and look at your screen

15:37-!-ilven_ [] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
15:37<sney_>ok, so the initscript for your 3rd party software is not compatible with debian's init system... you should really talk to the people who distribute that software, as #debian can't accurately support 3rd party stuff
15:38<sney_>if you're feeling adventurous you can open the initscript itself and another one that you know works, and compare them and see if you can figure out what's wrong with yours
15:38<broomZ>also: there is a loop between service rmnologin and ifupdown-clean if started
15:39<broomZ>well i can do that or keep sudo the command after every boot
15:39<broomZ>because support from the 3rd party will take probably a substantial amount of time :)
15:41-!-ao2 [] has joined #debian
15:41<sney_>if you just want to run a command at boot you can put it in rc.local
15:42<dpkg>/etc/rc.local is a script called by /etc/init.d/rc.local which is typically one of the last things to be run during the boot sequence. If you have commands you want run at boot, edit /etc/rc.local (don't touch /etc/init.d/rc.local). rc.local is regarded as a hack, consider writing a real init script instead, ask me about <init.d>.
15:42<pparadis>or for an even "hackier" solution, you might use an @reboot line in your crontab.

16:59<Airwave>Well my old setup was like this: One HTTP server was on port 80, another was on port 8000.

16:59<Airwave>I'm trying to redirect visitors using the old scheme to the new on.

17:00<pparadis>are you saying you had visitors hitting port 8000 directly before?
17:00<Airwave>I guess I can just run the server section that redirects the "old" users on a specific port which I can catch through the forwarding.
17:01<Airwave>pparadis: Yes. Note that the "visitors" were me and about five people I knew.
17:01<ompaul>Airwave: then email them - game over
17:01<pparadis>you can have nginx listen on more than one port and redirect users somewhere else. this seems like too much trouble to go to if you're talking about that few users.

17:10<scientes>passenger really should be part of the repos
17:10<pparadis>fix it!
17:11<scientes>maybe i'll package it and see if someone will sponsor it
17:11<scientes>esp now that we are dropping 1.8 after wheezy

17:12<Airwave>The amount of people trying to "hack" my Apache server never ceases to surprise me.

17:18<scientes>pparadis, that nginx setup actually caused us alot of problem, cause when passenger crashed, it would start up /usr/bin/nginx, instead of /opt/nginx/sbin/nginx
17:18<scientes>and therefore the server wouldn't restart itsself
17:18-!-Tekla [] has joined #debian
17:18<pparadis>Airwave: one thing i'll note is that if the only thing you "need" from testing is newer nginx, you may wish to consider running stable and just getting nginx from backports.
17:19<pparadis>Airwave: it should be noted that testing is not guaranteed to get timely security updates.
17:19-!-Tekla is now known as chaos
17:19<scientes>well testing is almost frozen

17:19<Airwave>I know. Stable wouldn't boot after installing though, and I figured that since testing is close to freeze anything, I'd just go with that.

17:32<Airwave>So I have a web server right now that is running MediaWiki 1.18. I want to move said wiki to my Debian server, but the MediaWiki in Debian repositories is only 1.15. What is the recommended course of action in such a situation?
17:33<streuner__>judd, versions MediaWiki
17:33<judd>No package named 'MediaWiki' was found in i386.
17:33<Airwave>judd, versions mediawiki
17:33<judd>Package: mediawiki on i386 -- lenny: 1:1.12.0-2lenny9; lenny-security: 1:1.12.0-2lenny9; lenny-backports: 1:1.15.5-1~bpo50+1; squeeze-security: 1:1.15.5-2squeeze2; squeeze: 1:1.15.5-2squeeze4; sid: 1:1.15.5-10; wheezy: 1:1.15.5-10; experimental: 1:1.19.0-1
17:34<pparadis>if the differences are minor enough, it may simply work. you might want to read through the release notes for 1.18 for extra tips.
17:34<streuner__>Airwave: if you are insane enough, you can run expeimental
17:34<pparadis>oh fuck that :)
17:35<Airwave>I tried moving it over earlier this week, despite the lower version number. I did not have much luck.
17:35<pparadis>maybe something to post to their forums about.
17:35-!-canaima [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:35<pparadis>surely somebody else has done something similar.
17:35<Airwave>Maybe I'll just get the .deb from experimental.
17:35<pparadis>do _not_ install debs from experimental on testing or stable.
17:36<pparadis>you are going to break things.
17:36<streuner__>keep in mind, you are only able to use experimental if you using sid...
17:36<Airwave>What is the recommended way of getting a newer version of MediaWiki on testing then?
17:36<Airwave>Installing manually?

18:05<pparadis>Airwave: from the page i linked a minute ago: "When a DNS resolver encounters a CNAME record while looking for a regular resource record, it will restart the query using the canonical name instead of the original name."
18:06<Airwave>I know that.
18:07<pparadis>this produces additional DNS traffic, when the query could have been satisfied from start with either a specific A record, or a wildcard. CNAMEs are best used to defer handling of a DNS query to another system that is actually responsible for the target.
18:07<Airwave>I know that CNAMEs are somewhat controversial.

19:04<scientes>or the gui
19:04<scientes>also aptitude is kinda buggy wth multiarch
19:04<scientes>or at least, i've experienced bugginess in it with multiarch
19:04<pparadis>i'm really still using apt-get just out of long-formed habit for my stuff.
19:05<Marillion>scientes: that is the reason why then apt is default :)

22:52<Airwave>I have a web server (Apache) running on one computer, and Nginx running on another. I want all web requests to go through the Nginx server. From what I understand, I can use proxy_pass to do this. How do I make that work with HTTPS/SSL?
22:53<pparadis>Airwave: the same way you would with HTTP.
22:54<kingsley>Airwave: I don't know, but it looks like YAGRP (Yet Another Google Research Project) to me.

22:55<Airwave>But unless I'm thinking about this all wrong, the communication between Nginx and Apache won't be over SSL.
22:55<pparadis>Airwave: it can be.
22:56<Airwave>I guess it can.

22:58<flaccid>you may like to look at stunnel if you really want to encrypt after terminating the tls
22:59<Airwave>I'll take a look at it, thanks.
22:59-!-felix__ [] has joined #debian
22:59<pparadis>of course, if you control the backend network that the servers are sitting on, it may not even make sense to add the overhead of encryption between the nginx front end and the back end servers.
22:59<Techy2493>I've got another problem i've been sitting on for a bit now, maybe you guys can suggest something? I'm trying to limit a process to only being able to find a single ip. Not just use it but being able to see it. I've got a program that wasn't designed for ip binding but sends it's ip to a connection list. I'm afraid its going to grab an ip which I don't have forwarded for security reasons...
22:59<Techy2493>Is this even possible? I've done searching on google have found alot of information on ip routing, but nothing on hiding my other ip's from the program.

23:01<pparadis>Techy2493: either a program has permission to bind to an IP/port combo or it doesn't, and that's not generally granular on a per-combo basis. you probably need to control this in your program, or if possible run it in a VM and use ebtables/iptables on the host side to control what that VMs NIC is allowed to do network-wise.
23:02-!-kriger [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
23:02<Techy2493>Alright, thats why I was thinking about using Xen, but it seemed like a sort of extravagant solution, if it will even work.
23:02<pparadis>it would seem more sensible to modify the program to behave correctly.
23:03<Techy2493>Unfortunately it's a closed source project, I would prefer changing the source..
23:03<pparadis>in that case, you probably would be safer running it in a VM and controlling its network access from the host side with ebtables/iptables. sounds like a wacky program.
23:04<pparadis>incidentally, i greatly prefer KVM over Xen.
23:04<Techy2493>KVM? I'll look into it thanks.
23:04<pparadis>you may want to investigate KVM.
23:05<Techy2493>I guess using VM's just increases security across my system uses anyways... Thanks again for all the help, unfortunately I might be back..

23:22<franzel>last line is can't access tty; job control turned off
23:23<franzel>lots of mounting errors like root directory
23:23<franzel>last line is (initramfs)

23:25<franzel>getting stuff like failed command: read dam ext
23:26<pparadis>franzel: have you tried booting with rescue media and fscking your filesystems?
23:26<franzel>no i have not
23:26<pparadis>that may be a good idea.
23:26<franzel>I didn't create a rescue media
23:26<pparadis>you can just go grab finnix or whatever and throw it on a CD or USB stick.
23:27<franzel>there is a recovery mode option
23:27<pparadis>or even use a debian install cd
23:27<pparadis>given what you're seeing, i wouldn't boot that OS in any fashion in its present condition.

23:27<pparadis>also, if you don't have reliable backups of the stuff on that server, you might want to think about that next.
23:28<franzel>ok…let me find the install cd
23:28<pparadis>(if it's possible at this stage)
23:28<pparadis>franzel: it's really worth keeping a copy of finnix laying around for this purpose, btw.
23:29<franzel>got the cd in…how to do you go about fscking my filesystem
23:30-!-mode/#debian [+l 473] by debhelper
23:30<pparadis>franzel: that's really not what i would use. would it be too much trouble to throw finnix on CD?
23:31<franzel>no…let me download finnix

23:32<Airwave>Hmm. "port-share" is really taxing on my poor router's CPU.
23:33<pparadis>Airwave: when i drink too much port, i sure do feel pretty taxed too.
23:33<Airwave>Harr harr.
23:34<Airwave>Yowza. This is taxing on my poor server's CPU as well.

23:36<franzel>pparadis: downloading now…and will burn iso to cd
23:37<pparadis>franzel: sure thing
23:37<franzel>got about 3 more min for download
23:37<pparadis>franzel: so what were the initial symptoms that something was going wrong with this server?
23:37-!-Wyzard [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:37<franzel>was ftp from another computer in the house
23:37<franzel>then ftp server started acting up
23:38<franzel>then web server stopped working
23:38<franzel>then rebooted and notice a long time to load os
23:38<franzel>no can't get into os at all
23:39<franzel>sorry, meant to say that …now I can't get into the os at all
23:39<franzel>hope that it's not my hd that is causing all of this
23:39<pparadis>provided the fsck comes back clean, you're probably going to want to poke around /var/log
23:39-!-Alam_Squeeze [] has quit [Quit: Varica | Who is this Colonel Panic, and why am I reading about him when it's General Protection's fault?]
23:40<franzel>i guess that will let me know the culprit
23:41<franzel>pparadis: just downloaded iso
23:41-!-Se-bash [] has joined #debian
23:41<franzel>when I opened iso….got fin nix and isolinux folder
23:41<franzel>which one should I burn to the cd
23:41<pparadis>you don't open the iso.
23:42<pparadis>you burn the ISO to a CD.
23:42<Airwave>It's getting way too late. I'm heading off to bed guys.
23:42<Airwave>Good night.
23:42<franzel>ok…let me burn iso to cd
23:42<Airwave>franzel: Make sure that you don't just put the .iso file on the CD.
23:42<pparadis>franzel: you need to use the "burn CD image to disc" functionality of whatever burning software you're using.
23:44<franzel>ok…will do it
23:44<franzel>using disk utility on osx
23:45<Airwave>Disk Utility can do that, yes. Just hit the "burn" button in the toolbar, and you'll be able to select the .iso file.
23:45<Airwave>Anyway, bedtime.
23:45<Airwave>Good night.
23:46<franzel> thanks Airwave
23:46<Airwave>No problem.
23:48<franzel>don' drink to much port Airwave
23:49<Airwave>Harr harr.
23:50<franzel>pparadis: booting dvd now
23:51<franzel>should I just do a standard boot fin nix 64 bit?
23:52-!-ring0 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
23:52<Airwave>God damn it again. I left my Coke in the freezer so it would be nice and cold, but I forget about it and it froze. Then I left it in hot water so that it would warm up a little and be drinkable again. Naturally, I forgot about that as well and it was very warm when I remembered.
23:52<pparadis>Airwave: you have disastrous luck with this :)
23:52<Airwave>Why can't I just be happy with Coke at fridge temperature?
23:53<franzel>nothing better than a drink that is just barely above freezing temop
23:53<Airwave>pparadis: I sure do. I think I can count the times when this plan has actually worked out on one hand.
23:53<pparadis>Airwave: or turn down your fridge temp a tad ;)
23:53<Airwave>franzel: I know. That is the unattainable goal for me, apparently.
23:53-!-dous [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:53<franzel>pparadis: now booted as rood
23:53<Airwave>pparadis: That's what a smart person would do. I an not that person.
23:54-!-amanda [~amanda@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:54<Airwave>I put the coke back in the fridge. Hopefully it will be drinkable tomorrow morning. Good night everyone.
23:54<pparadis>franzel: finnix is a live recovery environment. you should be able to "fsck -f /dev/sda1" or whatever from there. it would be best to make sure it didn't automount whatever you're going to fsck first, though.
23:55<pparadis>you can see what's mounted with the "mount" command, of course.

23:58<franzel>not sure how it was mounted…used to diskutil list, but that didn't work
