00:00<perlwizard>the easy no-brainer way would be reinstall and make sure grub installs properly this time
00:00<Gators>but I already know the grub install is broken, so why would I repeat?
00:01<perlwizard>the hard way would involve booting from some removable medium, using chroot and performing grub-install
00:01<perlwizard>Gators what installer are you using ?
00:01<Gators>I tried chroot, it didn't work.
00:01<Gators>um....a cd I downloaded from debian's site
00:01<perlwizard>link to file you downloaded ?
00:02<Gators>that's on my other machine.
00:02<Gators>it was the small cd version, that way I could easily instlal without having to burn like 20 something discs
00:02<perlwizard>can you be more specific than "it didn't work"
00:02<perlwizard>when talking about chroot ?
00:03<Gators>anyways, I'm back to the enter rescue mode screen, which only works for do not user a root file system, if I try to select /dev/sdc2 or /dev/sdc5, it fails, but the install is definitely on one of those.
00:03<Gators>So I selected do not use a root file system
00:03<Gators>got to a prompt
00:03<perlwizard>"it fails"
00:03<Gators>tried to chroot /dev/sdc2 /bin/bash, also tried with sdc5, and it gives me
00:03<perlwizard>what fails?
00:03<perlwizard>fails how ?
00:04<Gators>chroot: can't chante root directory to /dev/sdc2 (or 5): Not a directory
00:04<perlwizard>you need to mount that first
00:05<Gators>ah...the last person helping me failed to mention that
00:05<Gators>or how to do that
00:05<Gators>or what that is
00:05<perlwizard>you might wanna look into chroot manual
00:05<Gators>ok, how do I mount?
00:05<perlwizard>mount /what /where
00:05<perlwizard>there is `man mount` btw
00:05<Gators>how do I determine the /what /where?
00:06<Gators>I'm more into woman mount than man mount
00:06<perlwizard>the /what is your /dev/xyz and /where is your arbitrary mount point (just some directory under which the newly-mounted filesystem would appear)
00:07<Gators>ok, so how do I do this?
00:07<perlwizard>define 'this'
00:07<Gators>Ideally, I'd like to be able to boot into the debian install I did.
00:07<perlwizard>< perlwizard> the hard way would involve booting from some removable medium, using chroot and performing grub-install
00:08<Gators>so I guess this would involve, running the mount commmand, which requires knowing how to determine what to fill in to run it, then get the grub install to work right, so I can dual boot to windows or debian.
00:08<perlwizard>what part of this is not clear enough
00:08-!-zafrina [~zafrina@] has left #debian [Saliendo]
00:08<perlwizard>that is correct
00:08<Gators>But I still don't know how to do any of this.
00:08<perlwizard>define 'any'
00:08<perlwizard>download a debian live image
00:09<perlwizard>boot using it
00:09-!-Watcher7 [~AppleJack@] has joined #debian
00:09<Gators>I don't know what I'm mounting, how to mount it, how to install grub, have it work after the install, and.....that covers it for now.
00:09<perlwizard>mount your /dev/sdwhatever until you find your install
00:09<perlwizard>chroot into it
00:09<Gators>How do I do that?
00:10<Gators>Work with me here, I'm not a linux guru.
00:10-!-crisconect [~crisconec@] has joined #debian
00:10<perlwizard>mkdir /tmp/mountpoint1
00:10<perlwizard>mount /dev/sdc2 /tmp/mountpoin1
00:10<perlwizard>chroot /tmp/mountpoint1
00:11<perlwizard>grub-install /dev/sdc
00:11-!-crisconect [~crisconec@] has quit []
00:11<Gators>mounting /dev/sdc2 on /tmp/mountpoint1 failed: Input/output error
00:11<perlwizard>pastebin fdisk -l and dmesg
00:12<Gators>it likes sdc5 though
00:12<Gators>to me it appears like sdc2 is a container for 5 and 6, with 5 being where it's installed and 6 something it setup for swap
00:13<Gators>ok, so I did the above procedure with sdc5, and I get this for the grub install:
00:14<Gators>blah - /usr/sbin/grup-probe: error: cannot find a device for /boot/grub (is /dev mounted?).
00:14<Gators>had to put blah in front, because it thinks I'm running a command if I start a message with a /
00:14-!-gsb [~gsb@] has joined #debian
00:15<Gators>So....what does that error mean, and how do I get grub to install?
00:16<perlwizard>hmm, yeah that error makes sense.
00:16<perlwizard>since you're chrooted, you no longer have /dev
00:17<perlwizard>my bad
00:17<Gators>it's cool
00:17-!-Watcher7 [~AppleJack@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:18<perlwizard>does the non-chrooted environment have grub-install ?
00:18-!-Watcher7 [~AppleJack@] has joined #debian
00:18<perlwizard>get livecd
00:18<Gators>I just want this thing to boot....there's seriously no way to install grub with what I've got?
00:20<Gators>If I back out of this and go back a few places, I can get the debian installer main menu, from there I can select install the grub boot loader on a hard disk
00:20<Gators>but....I've had no luck going down that path.
00:20<Gators>It wants me to partition stuff, but I've already partitioned and just want the damn thing to install
00:21<perlwizard>Gators try mount -o bind /dev /tmp/mountpoint1/dev
00:21<perlwizard>and then chroot into it
00:21<perlwizard>that might work.
00:21<Gators>alright, but I backed out, not sure where my starting point to run that command needs to be.
00:21<perlwizard>same where you did mkdir /tmp/mountpoint1
00:22-!-hazard2 [] has quit [Quit: This computer has gone to sleep]
00:22<Gators>so do I chroot /tmp/mountpoint1 or chroot /tmp/mountpoint1/dev?
00:22-!-drewdavis [~drew@] has joined #debian
00:22<perlwizard>the former
00:22<perlwizard>'chroot /tmp/mountpoint1'
00:22<Gators>that means the first one
00:22<Gators>got it
00:22<perlwizard>after binding dev
00:23<Gators>installation finished. no error reported
00:23-!-clopez [] has joined #debian
00:23<Gators>ok, do I know it works? It didn't ask me anything to configure or set.
00:24<perlwizard>set your BIOS to boot off of /dev/sdc
00:24<perlwizard>might try running dpkg-reconfigure grub
00:24<Gators>well, since that's the drive that windows is installed on, it already boots to there.
00:24<Gators>run that right now?
00:24<Gators>type that in as you wrote it?
00:24<perlwizard>(not sure if it's present)
00:24-!-adam_ [] has joined #debian
00:24-!-adam_ [] has left #debian []
00:24<Gators>dpkg-reconfig: not found
00:25<Gators>yeah, just caught that
00:25<perlwizard>if that does something, you should be all set
00:25<perlwizard>if not,
00:25<perlwizard>welp might still have some messing around to do.
00:25<Gators>ok, that gave me all sorts of errors
00:25-!-nug [] has joined #debian
00:26<Gators>perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
00:26<Gators>and it goes downhill from there
00:26<perlwizard>Gators try booting
00:26<perlwizard>from it
00:26<Gators>ok, so reboot now?
00:26<perlwizard>yeah, and make sure you're booting from proper hdd
00:27-!-nug [] has quit []
00:27<Gators>still boots the same as it ever did.
00:27<Gators>Windows is on the same hard drive, so it is booting to that drive.
00:28<perlwizard>you're booting from the wrong hdd
00:28<Gators>but, no grub, just the same old windows boot manager
00:28<Gators>Can't be, windows is on that hard drive
00:28-!-phillmac_ [~Phillip@] has joined #debian
00:28<perlwizard>what was the *exact* grub-install command that succeeded ?
00:28<Gators>I mean, if windows is on the same hard drive as the debian install, and it boots directly to windows.....isn't it booting to the hard drive that debian is on?
00:29-!-Alam_Lenny [] has joined #debian
00:29<Gators>um.....the one you told me to type?
00:29<perlwizard>grub-install /dev/sdc ?
00:29<perlwizard>you're booting from the wrong hdd
00:29-!-quentusrex_ [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:29<perlwizard>I have nothing more to add.
00:29<Gators>Like I said, that's impossible.
00:29<Gators>Explain how that can be?
00:30<perlwizard>you're booting from the wrong hdd
00:30-!-mode/#debian [+l 490] by debhelper
00:30<Gators>How is that at all possible?
00:30-!-Alam_Squeeze [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:30<perlwizard>your bios is pointed at a wrong mbr
00:30<Gators>It is the only hard drive that is 320 GB with 2 partitions on it, which is what /sdc is, and is where windows is installed. It just booted to windows, therefore, it booted to that hard drive. And yet you tell me it booted to the wrong hdd. How could that possibly be?
00:31<perlwizard>I asked you to pastebin fdisk -l and dmesg
00:31<pparadis>perhaps the master boot record of the other drive is where the windows bootloader is installed.
00:31<Gators>hmmm....didn't think of that.
00:32<Gators>not sure why windows would install itself like that
00:32-!-phillmac [~Phillip@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:32<Gators>but, it is microsoft after all
00:32<pparadis>windows being installed on a particular drive doesn't mean that's the drive the system is booting from, which is what i believe perlwizard is trying to explain to you.
00:32<Gators>well, the c drive is drive 2, perhaps whatever drive 0 is where it's booting from.
00:33<pparadis>00:31 < perlwizard> I asked you to pastebin fdisk -l and dmesg
00:33<Gators>one of the down sides of going from ide to s-ata....not always clear what drive is hooked up where.
00:33<Gators>yeah, I know, but I didn't figure out what that meant before I got the grub install to work.
00:33<perlwizard>can you just
00:33<perlwizard>just stop
00:33<perlwizard>for a second ?
00:33*pparadis always knows which drive is hooked up where...
00:34*pparadis goes to brush his teeth
00:34<perlwizard>ok ?
00:34<Gators>well, I know where all the drives are and where they're hooked up.
00:34<Gators>They're in the tower, hooked up to the motherboard
00:34<Gators>anyways, I've switched to boot to another drive.
00:34<Gators>I have grub
00:35<Gators>Seems my windows install on my C: boots from my's that for a f---ed up install?
00:35<perlwizard>still waiting for fdisk -l paste
00:35<perlwizard>not paying attention to much else
00:35<Gators>I'm not at a prompt where I could even run that right now.
00:36<Gators>Thank you perlwizard, I greatly appreciate your help.
00:36<Gators>And thank you pparadis for guiding me to the answer that was staring me in the face.
00:36<perlwizard>< perlwizard> the hard way would involve booting from some removable medium
00:36<perlwizard>< perlwizard> download a debian live image
00:36<perlwizard>< perlwizard> get livecd
00:37-!-robinho [] has joined #debian
00:37<pparadis>Gators: sure thing
00:37<perlwizard>how many more clues do you need ? :)
00:37<Gators>debian is booting at the moment, so I'm good here, until I try to figure out how to do things in debian instead of windows.
00:37<pparadis>imma go to bed now. goodnight all \o
00:37<perlwizard>nn pparadis
00:37-!-robinho [] has quit []
00:37<Gators> do I configure my monitors?
00:38<Gators>I have 2 monitors, they are both showing the same thing now.
00:39-!-dvs [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:39<perlwizard>there is a way to do it using xorg.conf
00:39<perlwizard>but there is probably more debian-ish way
00:39<Gators>found it.
00:40<Gators>although now it's set my left monitor as the main one
00:40<Gators>ah well, I'll have to dick aorund a bit and figure things out.
00:42<Gators> could be fun.
00:43<Gators>so what browser do all the cool kids use in linux? Is there a firefox for linux?
00:43<dsplayer14>Yeah, its called Iceweasel
00:43<perlwizard>aptitude install iceweasel
00:43<dsplayer14>I use Google Chrome tho. I don't wanna have to figure out how to install flash manually(ALWAYS have a hard time with flash...)
00:44<Gators>so flash doesn't install easy in linux?
00:44<dsplayer14>Not as easy as Windows. I can say that
00:44<perlwizard>not really?
00:45<perlwizard>aptitude install flashplugin-nonfree
00:45<perlwizard>wat indeed
00:45<dsplayer14>Are you serious?
00:45<perlwizard>are you?
00:45<dsplayer14>Oh my god...
00:45<Gators>ok, I downloaded firefox, what? It doesn't just install like in windows. Not sure what to do with this thing I downloaded.
00:46<dsplayer14>Youre right perlwizard!
00:46<perlwizard>Gators what part of "aptitude install iceweasel" you didn't get
00:46<Gators>just 3
00:46<perlwizard>list them
00:46<Gators>you really don't want me to
00:46<perlwizard>please do.
00:46<dsplayer14>Well, I dunno how to install flash so were in the same boat friend
00:46<Gators>ok, but that what I type at a prompt?
00:47<dsplayer14>sudo first
00:47<perlwizard>sudo is meh
00:47<perlwizard>you do su -
00:47-!-Brigo [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:47<perlwizard>log in as root
00:47<dsplayer14>you dare devil.
00:47<perlwizard>do root business
00:47<perlwizard>and log out
00:47<dsplayer14>Your telling a guy how cant install iceweasel, to install iceweasel, in a root shell?
00:48<Gators>um....what's a cubit?
00:48<perlwizard>a cubit? -_-
00:48<dsplayer14>8 cubits = 1 cubyte.
00:48<perlwizard>where did you get that from
00:48<Gators>I'm quoting a Bill Cosby routine
00:48<perlwizard>who's bill cosby ?
00:49<Gators>god saying to noah "you will build an ark this many cubits wide by this many cubits high and this many cubits....."
00:49<dsplayer14>He just zippity boopity my dobbity floobity
00:49<Gators>"right......what's a cubit?"
00:49<perlwizard>Gators do you know how to use a terminal
00:49<Gators>well, I found it and have it open, so that's a start
00:49<Gators>is that like a dos prompt?
00:49<perlwizard>do you know how to become root in terminal ?
00:49<dsplayer14>GOD NO
00:50<Gators>ok, but I did find iceweasel, so I'm thinking that's already installed, but I downloaded a firefox installer and don't know how to run it.
00:50<dsplayer14>Unix shell > DOS Prompt K?
00:50<perlwizard>Gators if you have iceweasel installed
00:50<perlwizard>that's basically your firefox
00:50-!-mbah [] has joined #debian
00:50<perlwizard>problem solved
00:50<dsplayer14>he should. This is debian.
00:50<dsplayer14>Iceweasel is a fork of firefox
00:50<dsplayer14>same thing
00:50<dsplayer14>just diff name
00:50<Gators>ok. just curious though, if they're the same, how come there's a firefox install for linux?
00:51<dsplayer14>Branding issues
00:51<perlwizard>it's a long story
00:51<perlwizard>and it isn't pretty
00:51-!-mbah [] has quit []
00:51<perlwizard>just stick to iceweasel
00:51<dsplayer14>It isnt?
00:51<Gators>Got it.
00:51<dsplayer14>I just thought Mozilla said no so debian made iceweasel
00:51<Gators>so, now I have my linux dos prompt up, and I can do that easy flash install from there?
00:52<perlwizard>step 0 would be stopping calling terminal a dos prompt
00:52<dsplayer14>sudo apt-get install wat persaid
00:52<dsplayer14>like i said: Unix shell > DOS Prompt K?
00:52<perlwizard>step 1 would probably be becoming root
00:52<perlwizard>step 2 would be probably enabling non-free repository
00:52<Gators>apparently jonathan is not in the sudoers file, and this incident will be reported.
00:53<Gators>When should I expect the linux police to show up?
00:53<perlwizard>and then aptitude install flashplugin-nonfree
00:53<perlwizard>Gators su -
00:53<dsplayer14>do visudo
00:53<perlwizard>not sudo
00:53<perlwizard>this is not ubuntu
00:53-!-denaric4 [] has joined #debian
00:53<Gators> I type in what?
00:53<perlwizard>'su -'
00:54<dsplayer14>sure just type su, perl does flash integrate with iceweasel automatically?
00:54-!-reklipz [] has joined #debian
00:54<denaric4>cool im not alone
00:54<Gators>ok, so I'm in as root now
00:54<perlwizard>flashplugin-nonfree integrates with every known browser
00:54<dsplayer14>well thanks for that
00:54<dsplayer14>now I can uninstall this closed source piece o crap.
00:55<perlwizard>flashplugin-nonfree is still a closed-source piece of crap.
00:55-!-Areckx [] has joined #debian
00:55<dsplayer14>yeah, but its not a full browser
00:55-!-denaric4 [] has quit []
00:55<Gators>alrighty, so now what do I do?
00:55<perlwizard>enable non-free repositories
00:55<perlwizard>unless you have religious issues with that kind of thing
00:56<Gators>Well, I was raised Catholic....but I'm recovering.
00:56-!-welirang [] has joined #debian
00:56<Gators>how do I enable non-free repositories?
00:56<dsplayer14>gotta nano into /etc/apt/source.list
00:56<dsplayer14>gotta nano into /etc/apt/sources.list
00:57<nevyn>then apt-get install sudo and configure it ;)
00:57<Gators>ok, there's a few things I'm unclear on with that.
00:57<simonlnu>nevyn: heh
00:57-!-welirang [] has quit []
00:57<dpkg>[non-free] a component which contains software that does not comply with the <DFSG>. To add non-free packages to your packages index, ask me about <non-free sources>. To see which non-free packages are installed ask me about <non-free list>. For the non-free tracking system, see
00:57<Gators>what's a nano, and how do I do that?
00:57<dsplayer14>nano is a text editor
00:57<perlwizard>I gtg
00:57<dsplayer14>you would type nano /etc/apt/sources.list
00:57<perlwizard>have fun guys
00:57-!-mekki [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
00:57<dsplayer14>ya cya
00:58-!-perlwizard [~x@] has quit [Quit: leaving]
00:58<simonlnu>!non-free sources
00:58<dpkg>Edit /etc/apt/sources.list, ensure that the two main Debian mirror lines end with "main contrib non-free" rather than just "main", then aptitude update. But bear in mind that you'll be installing <non-free> software. These may have onerous terms; check the licenses. See also <sources.list>.
00:58<dsplayer14>What simon said basically.
00:58<Gators>ok, but why am I doing all of this? What does it all mean?
00:58<dsplayer14>Your trying to install flash right?
00:59<simonlnu>you need to do that because flashplayer-nonfree is in... non-free
00:59<dsplayer14>Its closed source. Debian attempts to keep closed source out and open source in
00:59-!-rigved [~rigved@] has joined #debian
00:59<Gators>so I'm bypassing this.
00:59<simonlnu>like the bot said, run an update once you're done
00:59<Gators>but, what does nano mean, and why am I running it? what does it do?
00:59<dsplayer14>nano is a text editor
00:59<dsplayer14>you use it to edit text files like sources.list
01:00<dsplayer14>sources.list is a bunch of text that tells aptitude what packages it can download
01:00<Gators>oh, ok, so now I'm in my sources.list and am editing it.
01:00<Gators>This feels dangerous.
01:00<dsplayer14>I hope you get used to that feeling...
01:00<dsplayer14>or lose it
01:01<dsplayer14>so, dont delete anything
01:01<simonlnu>once you've typed that in, do ^o (ctrl-o), to write the file, then ^x to exit
01:01<simonlnu>if you made a mistake, just do ^x then say no
01:01<dsplayer14>just add "non-free" and "contrib" after you see "main"
01:01<dsplayer14>^ meaning Ctrl
01:02<Gators>I'm not sure what I'm writing where
01:02<dsplayer14>Ill give you a link to my sources.list. I have what you need in it
01:02<Gators>I really don't know what I'm doing.
01:02<simonlnu>say you have a line like: deb squeeze main . add " contrib non-free" after "main"
01:03<Gators>so do I have to write that after every main?
01:03<dsplayer14>Well, no. Just the first line if you want to
01:03<simonlnu>won't hurt
01:03<Gators>the first is adequate though?
01:03-!-phillmac [~Phillip@] has joined #debian
01:03<simonlnu>but up to you, certainly the main repo. and possibly the security one
01:04<dsplayer14>oh yeah and the 3rd
01:04<dsplayer14>thats the security repo
01:04*simonlnu would do the security one
01:04<Gators>what are the 2nd and 4th?
01:04<dsplayer14>source code
01:04<Gators>and what about the 5th and 6th?
01:04<dsplayer14>oh wait
01:04<Gators>so just the 1st and 3rd then
01:04<simonlnu>deb-src is where you get what's called source packages
01:04<dsplayer14>do you have CD-ROM in your sources.list?
01:05<Gators>so all of them
01:05-!-BigDog86 [] has joined #debian
01:05<dsplayer14>yeah just go ahead and do all of them
01:05-!-BigDog86 [] has quit []
01:05<dsplayer14>itll work
01:05<Gators>I don't see cd-rom anywhere in this file, should i?
01:05<simonlnu>that's where you get the source to *build* a (set of) package(s)
01:05<dsplayer14>no you shouldnt. I thought of something. nevermind
01:05<simonlnu>Gators: won't matter if you do... best to comment it out if you did
01:06<Gators>so now the pink main is instead main contrib non-free for all of them
01:06<dsplayer14>hit ctrl+x
01:06<dsplayer14>y to save
01:06<dsplayer14>enter to save file name
01:06<Gators>got it
01:07<dsplayer14>so then you would run apt-get (or aptitude) flashplugin-nonfree

01:09<dsplayer14>erm yeah. gsb is right. its aptitude install flashplugin-nonfree
01:09<gsb>Gators: you ran as root?
01:09<Gators>ok, think that did it
01:10<dsplayer14>try viewing a youtube vid in iceweasel
01:10<Gators>So, what messenger program that logs in to aim and msn do all the cool kids use in linux?
01:10<dsplayer14>"cool kids use in linux" Recognize.
01:11<dsplayer14>Pidgin. Kopete I think is one too
01:11<Gators>excellent, I use pidgin in windows
01:11<se7en>and they don't use msn :)

01:12<Gators>now to figure out how to use my delta 1010-lt soundcard to it's fullest capabilities
01:12<gsb>any reason why my flash videos have no sound?
01:12<dsplayer14>Uh, whats your DE?
01:12<gsb>video run fine
01:13<Gators>well, in windows I use the 1-2 output of my 1010lt sound card as my primary device, not the onboard sound card.
01:13<Gators>debian automatically did that.
01:13<dsplayer14>I use KDE. My videos were silent too. Turns out Kmixer muted everything...
01:13<Gators>oh, yeah, the video ran fine too.
01:13<Gators>so I have sound and video
01:13<Gators>which puts me ahead of my last attempt at this.
01:14<gsb>dsplayer14: me too on KDE
01:15<gsb>dsplayer14: amarok, vlc, mplayer all have sound. just flash videos don't have

01:18<Gators>ok, so, is there a way I can set it so that my right monitor is the primary monitor, instead of the left?
01:19<Gators> do I install pidgin? I went to their site, but they don't have an installer for me to download.
01:19<dsplayer14>To start of, if you havent already, check your "System Settings" for the monitor. aptitude install pidgin will install pidgin for you

01:26<dsplayer14>vlc is a good choice
01:26<Gators>but that's for video
01:26<dsplayer14>and music
01:27<dsplayer14>if you wanted a program for JUST music. well you can try Amarok (KDE) or rhythmbox (Gnome/XFCE/LXDE)
01:28<Gators>Do one of those look and feel like winamp?

01:35<Gators>ok, so now I'm trying to install teamtalk, which has a debian installer I downloaded, but....what do I do with it?
01:35<Gators>It's not just an executable I run.
01:35<dsplayer14>is a .deb file?
01:35<dsplayer14>is it*
01:35-!-gps23 [~gps23@] has joined #debian
01:35<Gators>it ends with .tar.gz
01:35<Gators>which opens to a bunch of folders and files
01:35<dsplayer14>oh, so you have the source code
01:35<dsplayer14>OK, time for a lesson!
01:36<dsplayer14>So, what you have is called a tarball
01:36<dsplayer14>its the equivalent to a zipped archive in windows
01:36<gps23>Irc on iPhone is cool!!
01:37<dsplayer14>So, what we gotta do is uncompress the tarball, and then compile il
01:38-!-m0li [~m0li@] has quit [Quit: */]
01:38<dsplayer14>So, uh. where did you download the tar.gz file? Im assuming its in /home/(yourusername)/downloads right?
01:38<Gators>if that's the default, then yes.
01:38<dsplayer14>ok so using the terminal, go to that directory
01:39<Gators>no such file or directory
01:39<dsplayer14>the command is cd /home/(yourusername)/downloads if you did not know
01:39<Gators>yeah, I did that
01:39<dsplayer14>try checking /home/(yourusername)
01:40<dsplayer14>check that
01:40<Gators>ok, I'm in there.
01:40<Gators>it's Downloads with a capital D
01:40<dsplayer14>oops. My bad
01:40<Gators>no worries
01:41<dsplayer14>so to make sure that the tarball is in there, you will need to view the files and folders in the Downloads directory. You can do so by typing "ls"
01:42<Gators>ok, turns out it isn't there
01:42<Gators>let me check the browser's settings
01:43<Gators>it's in tmp, but I should be able to drag and drop to downloads
01:43<dsplayer14>if you want to
01:43<Gators>ok, my tarball is in downloads, and I'm in downloads in my console
01:43<dsplayer14>ok, so now we gotta uncompress it. you can do that by typing "tar -xvf filename.tar.gz"
01:44<dsplayer14>tar is the name of the command -xvf is just some added options
01:44-!-bfly_ [] has joined #debian
01:44<dsplayer14>got it uncompressed?

01:46<dsplayer14>alrighty, so it should have added a directory in your, uh, Downloads directory. see if it did
01:46<Gators>yeah it did
01:46<dsplayer14>ok so go into that directory
01:47<Gators>ok, that has a client and server folders.
01:47<dsplayer14>you probably want the client folder
01:47-!-quentusrex_ [] has joined #debian
01:47<Gators>But I only want to setup a client to connect to a server
01:47<Gators>ok, so I'm in the client folder
01:47-!-cthuluh [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:47<dsplayer14>so now we gotta compile the program. This could take 10 seconds or 3 hours. So, lets see what happens
01:48<dsplayer14>is there a README file?
01:48<Gators>there is
01:49<dsplayer14>Read that and see if it has anything worth noting. if you are in the terminal you can just run "nano README"
01:49<Gators>well, I just browsed out to it double clicked and it's open
01:49<Gators>it tells me things that need to be installed first
01:50<dsplayer14>oook. can list off a few of the program names?
01:50<Gators>well, it gave me an apt-get install command to run, which I'm running, to get them all
01:50<dsplayer14>oh, ok good
01:51<Gators>ok, did that all
01:51-!-bfly [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:52<Gators>so now what do I do to compile the program?
01:53<dsplayer14>first try typing ./configure in the terminal
01:54<Gators>./configure: No such file or directory
01:54<dsplayer14>are you root?
01:54<dsplayer14>ok, uh, lets see...
01:54<dsplayer14>can you paste the names of the files on this website and then paste the link?:
01:56<Gators>invalid link
01:56<Gators>but there's

01:59<dsplayer14>Are there text files in the help directory?
01:59<Gators>html and png
02:00<dsplayer14>open up the html one
02:00<Gators>several of each, I mean
02:00<Gators>these seem to just be help files on how ot use the program once it is installed.
02:00<dsplayer14>oh are they? ok
02:00<dsplayer14>well nevermind that then
02:01<dsplayer14>the file
02:01<dsplayer14>thats a shell script
02:01<dsplayer14>you probably just need to run that.
02:02<dsplayer14>./ I belive. I don't normally run into shell scripts
02:04-!-warp10 [] has joined #debian
02:04<dsplayer14>That do it?
02:04<Gators>so I don't compile it, I just run it?
02:04<Gators>ok, a few things. Then in that case, I want to move this folder out of my downloads folder, and into something more like a program files folder
02:04<Gators>and then, how do I make a shortcut on the desktop to run the program?
02:04<dsplayer14>I thought that this was source code, but its just a shell script that makes life a little easier on you.
02:05<dsplayer14>Ok, well first, can you paste the contents of the shell script and send me the link on (right link this time)?
02:06<dsplayer14>if you want you can use your graphical file manager
02:06<Gators>contents of the shell script?
02:06<Gators>what is linux's version of the program files folder? where would an appropriate place to put this be?
02:06<dsplayer14>yeah, the shell script is really just a bunch of text that tells the computer to do stuff. Like a programming language
02:07-!-grandie [] has joined #debian
02:08<Gators>oh, I can just double click on the file and run it
02:08<Gators>so, once I have this saved where it should go, I can make a shortcut to that
02:08<Gators>ok....but, I really don't know where this folder should go
02:08<dsplayer14>I was thinking that the script might put different files in different places
02:08<dsplayer14>there really isnt a "Program Files" folder in Linux
02:08-!-dualboot [] has joined #debian
02:09<Gators>so where is linux installing all these programs to?
02:09<dsplayer14>different directories all over your computer.
02:09<dsplayer14>It sounds a little unorganized, but trust me, it is.
02:09<dsplayer14>its just different than windows
02:09<Gators>see, this is one thing I never got about doesn't tell me where it's putting everything, and so I have no control or clue as to the contents of the hard drive.
02:09<gdb>Gators: There is no "Program Files"-like folder. And it's not really that disorganized, it's just organized by file role, not application bundle.
02:10<dsplayer14>it is not I mean to say
02:10<dsplayer14>Im getting tired...
02:10<gdb>Gators: binaries go in /bin, configuration goes in /etc, runtime stuff goes in /var, user configuration goes in your home directory.
02:10<Gators>ok then, I'll just make a program files folder
02:10<dsplayer14>Well, try running the script first
02:10<gdb>For your applications, you can preface those with /usr other than /etc
02:11<gdb>Most of the configuration for applications in /usr/bin is in /usr/share

02:12-!-drewdavis [~drew@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:13<Gators>I have a folder. There's a file in there. I double click on it, select run, the program runs.
02:13<gdb>I don't know what teamtalk 4 is, so you'll have to help me out here. :-)
02:13<gdb>Ah, okay. Well, the usual location for this sort of thing (a 3rd party "stand alone" application) is /opt
02:13<Gators>when I doubleclick on, and then click run, the program opens
02:13<dsplayer14>Ah, so it does run with!
02:13<gdb>In this case, it would be /opt/teamtalk4 or whatever you'd like to call it.
02:13<Gators>I just want this folder saved out somewhere.
02:14<dsplayer14>Yeah, listen to gdb
02:14<Gators>it won't let me move it there

02:15<Gators>I installed it, I am God as far as it is concerned.
02:15<gdb>Gators: You'll need to be root to put it there.
02:15<dsplayer14>well are you using the terminal?
02:15<dsplayer14>or the graphical file manager?
02:15<Gators>no, drag and drop
02:15<Gators>why do linux people like to do everything from a terminal?
02:15<dsplayer14>Cause were awesome like that.
02:15<gdb>The only location on your system you'll be able to access via drag and drop is your own home directory, /tmp, and /var/tmp (and those last 2 should not be used for this).
02:16<Gators>but drag and drop is so easy and useful.....why hinder such a useful tool?
02:16<dsplayer14>you can type "su" and then type cp /home/yourusername/Downloads/programname /opt
02:16<gdb>Well, that's a very good feature request for your file manager of choice. "Copy/Move as root user" and then being prompted for credentials. I don't know if Nautilus or Dolphin support that now (and I suspect they don't).
02:17<dsplayer14>you could try gksu (for gnome/lxde/xfce) or kdesu (for KDE) I suppose
02:17-!-grandie [] has joined #debian

02:18<Gators>it ommited the directory
02:19<Gators>which means, it did absolutely nothing
02:19<gdb>Yes, are you wanting a copy in both places or are you wanting it moved to /opt?
02:19<Gators>but....the command did I have that going for me.
02:19<Gators>move, copy, I don't care, I just want it in opt
02:19<Gators>it isn't there
02:19<gdb>Gators: If you want to copy it, then you'll need to use some options like -av "cp -av YourFolder /opt"
02:19<dsplayer14>yeah it didnt move it to the /opt directory
02:19<dsplayer14>were you root when you ran the command?
02:19<Gators>yes, I was root
02:20<Gators>ok, here's what I'm gonna do
02:20-!-grandie [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:20<Gators>I'm gonna reboot, and go back to Windows, where it doesn't take a f---ing hour to do one damn simple task.
02:20<gdb>Gators: And I'd honestly suggest a book on basic Unix. Without at least a minimum of familarity with the command line, you're going to have a tough time using the system with anything other than the default applications Debian provides.
02:20<gdb>It is a simple task.
02:20<Gators>I do have some basics of it, I can navigate around
02:20<Gators>and I've used vi
02:21<Gators>and I can reboot a server at work
02:21<gdb>cp <-- copy, -av <-- preserving permissions/acting recursively, ie; "do all", and do it "v"erbosely.
02:21-!-toabctl [] has joined #debian
02:21<Gators>An OS that can't let me drag and drop is absolutely useless to me.
02:21<gdb>(a, actually means "archive" in this context)
02:22<gdb>Well, you can't drag and drop anything to Program Files on Windows, either, without being an admistrative account so I'm not really clear on what the issue is here.
02:22<Gators>I mean, really, it's a pretty damn basic concept.
02:22<Gators>I always run windows as a local admin
02:22<dsplayer14>You dont do that in Unix
02:23<Gators>then how do you get anything done?
02:23-!-se7en [] has quit [Quit: WeeChat 0.3.8]
02:23<simonlnu>typing stuff ;). you'll see it's a lot more efficient
02:23<dsplayer14>well the majority of things I can do without being root (admin), but when I need those priveleges I just use the... terminal...
02:23<dsplayer14>sudo is a very nice program
02:24<simonlnu>*and* you can do it from anywhere (with ssh)
02:24<Gators>I mean, as it is, I always set computers I deploy to users up so the user has local admin rights, otherwise you run into lots of calls about random errors because of permission issues, programs seem to rely on the user having access. Things just don't work without it.
02:24<gdb>Normally, you just "drag and drop" things around and click on the icons. When you need to act as an admistrator, you either login to the computer as root or you use the command line utilities to act in an administrative role. For some actions (user config, network config, firewall config, etc) the system will prompt you for credentials in the GUI tools.
02:24<gdb>That's correct, and why Windows has that legacy. It started as a single user operating system onto which multi-user was bolted on. So the way to work with the legacy smoothly is to make everyone an admin.
02:25<gdb>Unix started as a multi-user operating system so it's unnecessary.
02:25<gdb>with that legacy*
02:25<Gators>Unnecessary my ass!
02:25<Gators>I think I just proved how necessary it is.
02:25<simonlnu>hence the problems with win ;)
02:25<gdb>No, you proved how resistant to learning you are.
02:25<Gators>I just spent over an hour trying to do what should have taken 5 minutes.
02:25<gdb>Please go back to Windows.

02:26<simonlnu>Gators: it does take 5 minutes, even less than that
02:26<Gators>It would take 5 seconds if I had the ability to utilize the drag and drop
02:26<dsplayer14>sudo cp /home/blah/blah /opt/blah does it for me
02:26<simonlnu>uh, no
02:26<Gators>I mean, linux gives me windows, lets me drag when I click on something....but what use is that if I can't have permission to it?
02:26*simonlnu sighs
02:27<dsplayer14>It makes sure that you dont bork your system usually...
02:27<dsplayer14>Thats what it does.
02:27<dsplayer14>Like gdb said. Unix started out as a MULTI user enviroment
02:28<gdb>It's quite easy to setup /opt to be managed by you own user account. I do that on my own systems (/usr/local, as well), but that requires some poking around in CLI to get working and thus likely outside the scope of this discussion.
02:28<Gators>is there a script you could provide that does that?

02:29<gdb>I don't have a script for it, no. I set /opt and /usr/local (and all directories under it) to chmod 2775 and then put myself in the adm group (this also lets me read log files in /var/log).
02:30<Gators>Oh, is that all?
02:30<gdb>2775 is rwxrwsr-x
02:30<Gators>now you're just making words up
02:30<gdb>You know that Windows has these same concepts, yes?
02:31<gdb>In fact, Windows permissions are an order of magnitude more finely grained than Unix.
02:31<Gators>I'm sure they are, but I can set myself as local admin by going into the management console and setting it.
02:31<gdb>Then do that here. (you'll need to do this in terminal, and need familiarity with vi)...
02:31<gdb># vipw
02:32<gdb>and set your own user id and group id to "0"
02:32<gdb>voila, you're a local admin
02:32<Gators>ok then. One thing I didn't really think about would I run my m-audio delta 1010-lt sound card?
02:32<gdb>(That's a really terrible idea, of course, but it seems to give you the results you're looking for.)
02:33<gdb>I don't know what that is, but being hardware, it should "just work." The kernel should find it at boot and load the appropriate kernel module (read: driver) for it.
02:34<Gators>well, it's an 8 input 8 output sound card that comes with software to control the levels and routings of the inputs and outputs
02:34<Gators>It's quite essential for my show, as I set different inputs for different programs that are fed by aux sends on the boards, and different outputs back to different channels, so that I can have my windows sounds, teamtalk, and skype all running, with people able to hear each other without hearing themselves loop back.
02:35-!-dsplayer14 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:36<Gators>so, it may have installed drivers, but I need my control console for it.
02:36<Gators>Not sure how to get that.
02:38<Gators>well, anyways, this has been interesting, maybe I'll boot into it again sometime. Or maybe my windows partition will run out of space, so I'll junk it and expand back into it. Not sure yet.
02:38<Gators>But, hey, thanks guys for your help, patience, and interesting conversation.

03:45<oskie>if I have a bad sector on a disk in an MD array, is there a way to ask MD to reconstruct & rewrite the sector if possible?
03:45<ansgar>oskie: Mark disk as failed, replace and rebuild?
03:46<oskie>ansgar: that would put the whole array at risk. also, I don't want to replace the whole disk. Rewriting the sector should cause it to be relocated by the drive itself
03:47<gdb>oskie: If the disk has bad sectors that aren't being handled by the disk's internal controller, then your array is already at risk and the disk is "FAILING" (to use vxvm parlance). You should remove it from the array and replace it.
03:48<oskie>gdb: how should a bad sector be handled by the controller? should it not cause a read error?
03:48<gdb>oskie: The disk's internal controller should remap the bad sectors to an unused area of the disk. If it's not doing that, the disk is dying.
03:49<gdb>oskie: It's automatic, there's nothing the user need to for this remapping to work.
03:49<gdb>If it's *not* working, that's a sign of a failing disk.
03:49<oskie>gdb: that is not entirely correct. it should remap the sector, but there will still be a read error. the OS should be informed about the read error
03:49-!-ao2 [~u@2001:1418:117::1] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:49<gdb>it's remapped by the disk itself
03:49<gdb>that area doesn't exist as far as the OS is concerned
03:49<gdb>it's remapped in the disk controller itself
03:50<oskie>gdb: remapping only happens when the sector is written to. not read.
03:50-!-ao2 [~u@2001:1418:117::1] has joined #debian
03:51<oskie>I've remapped sectors before by overwriting the file containing the specific sector with zeroes
03:51<gdb>Yes, I understand that. :-) And that there's bad data stuck in that part of the disk is bad joojoo for you. :-) Your options are 1. fail the disk and replace it, 2. fail the disk and remove it (in software) and reinitialize it so those sectors can be remapped, then reinsert it into the array
03:51<gdb>I'd replace it, myself.
03:52<gdb>I mean, this is what RAID is for! (aside from # of spindles for performance)
03:52-!-dirichlet [] has joined #debian
03:52<oskie>gdb: not even with big raid5 systems you replace a disk with bad sectors until the bad sectors have been rewritten...
03:53<gdb>You have a disk with some garbage on it. Your data is safely stored elsewhere and is being rebuilt on the fly (for that sector) out of parity since it can't read the actual data itself. The disk is bad. Replace it. Why are you resistant to a routine disk replacement?
03:54<oskie>gdb: If I fail the disk by removing it, and there are bad blocks (yet undiscovered) on other disks, I will have data loss!
03:54<gdb>Is every other device in the array good? If so, you'll be fine.
03:55<gdb>This is why most raid5s have a spare. Or people use raid6. I don't use either, I go for raid10.
03:55<gdb>(raid1 at home!)
03:55<gdb>Seriously, this is routine. :-) There's nothing to be worried about. :-)
03:55-!-ajedwards [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:56<gdb>We have raid so we can easily replace failing/failed disks on the fly while keeping our data intact. What you're needing to do is *why* we have raid. :-)
03:57<gdb>No, there is no way to tell mdadm to somehow work some magic to rebuild a "good" sector somewhere else on the disk out of the parity stripe.
03:57<oskie>I've been working with large RAID-5 arrays that got bad sectors, and IBM recommended us to fix those by finding out what data (files) got the bad sectors and rewrite that. It is the same with linux MD raid arrays
03:58<gdb>If you want to figure out which file is there and copy it somewhere else so an intact copy is written somewhere, that's fine.
03:58<oskie>gdb: the thing is, you can't read the file that is damaged. you have to rewrite it.
03:58<gdb>So where do you get that from? Your backup?
03:59<gdb>So you have the backup you need to do that in this case?
03:59<oskie>yes I do, but I guess I have to find out the damaged file first...
03:59<gdb>(What I'm getting at is that if you have that backup, just replace the disk, if the raid fails, use the backup to restore the volume)
03:59<gdb>it will be a lot less work, just as safe, and faster to just replace the disk :-)
04:00-!-byonk_ [] has joined #debian
04:00<gdb>(then pull your single file out of the backup for rewriting it if you still have concerns at that point)
04:00<oskie>no, it will not be just as safe... RAID-5 is risky business when a drive fails and the whole array needs to be reread to be rebuilt
04:01<oskie>and the drive isn't actually failed
04:01<oskie>it just has bad sectors
04:01-!-byonk [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
04:01<gdb>that's why you fail it
04:01<gdb>fail the failing disk
04:01<gdb>sets the array to degraded state and it starts reading out of parity
04:01-!-imagelife [~imagelife@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:02<gdb>And if you don't feel raid5 is safe enough to handle a routine disk replacement, then please look at using something other than raid5.
04:02<gdb>(for example, raid6)
04:02<oskie>people say raid6 has horrible performance for production
04:02<oskie>but I will look into other alternatives like raid1 or 10
04:03<gdb>raid10 will give you ND/2 capacity
04:03<oskie>this is for my home array so I don't feel like replacing a drive that only has a few bad sectors that can be relocated
04:03<gdb>(number of devices, not sure whatelse to use!)

07:07<dragondon__>markus, I would think so, yet Iam logged in to the machine (it's a headless VM) as the user and can Su into root just fine, but can't seem to SSH into the machine...
07:07<dragondon__>checking faillog
07:08<dragondon__>markus, no failed attempts, and the date/time is way off on this machine....
07:09<dragondon__>well, in that log, I suspect that's just a place holder for time/date on the log.

07:14<dragondon__>haven't been able to find any directions with my google-fu yet
07:14<SynrG>generally i use bridging and let the dhcp outside the VM instances grant them unique IP#s
07:14-!-nickb_ [] has joined #debian
07:14<SynrG>it's a simple VB network configuration option
07:14<SynrG>just switch to 'bridged'
07:14<dragondon__>SynrG, Ah, was wondering about that, thanks, will give that a shot
07:15<markus>dragondon__: SynrG is right. This will fix the problem

11:11-!-chgtg [~chg@] has quit [Quit: leaving]
11:11<SynrG>generally on a server i just buy more power efficient hardware if i really want to save power
11:11<SynrG>that being said, perhaps there are some things i'm overlooking
11:11<claw_>well SynrG its an self made NAS for my media here at home

11:12<SynrG>ah, 'personal server' is a whole different class of device, i guess
11:12<claw_>it's not realy a server
11:12<claw_>nothing rack mounted
11:12<claw_>just an desktop case with some hard drives in it
11:13<SynrG>well, and more importantly is not the hardware configuration, but usage profile and user expectations
11:13<ansgar>I guess most servers idle most of the time as well. So power saving should be useful for them as well.

11:26<joseph>SynrG, You mean about time?
11:26<SynrG>joseph: choose parameters carefully. for example, i think it's still the case if you select amd64 architecture you need to make sure the kernel (next config section down) is manually adjusted to amd64 too, or else you get an invalid default (486)

13:52<weasel>that can be any of over 20
13:53<Gators>I installed debian yesterday, when I turn it on, I login with my user account that I setup, and I get a desktop.
13:53<Gators>I didn't have an option to pick from 20 different desktops, so as far as I know, this is just the debian desktop you get when you install debian.

13:56<Gators>With windows, a simple right click and drag to the desktop and select create shortcut does this.

15:41<Gators>garn32 the install instructions tell me to type dpkg -l (filename)
15:41<Gators>I've verified several times I've typed the filename in correctly, but it can't find it.
15:41<nadir>or, if it is the only deb packag in the current dir, run "dpkg -i *deb"
15:41<nadir>though if you got the right name for sure it might be a different problem (couldn't think of what though)
15:42<Gators>i or l?
15:42<Gators>the instructions say l
15:42<garn32>Gators did you download the file manually?
15:42<garn32>the .deb file?
15:42<Gators>as opposed to what?
15:43<nadir>lower I , like first letter in instructions or install.
15:43<garn32>Gators if the machine has internet access it would be much easier to install via a package manager

15:45<garn32>Gators, it just takes some practice, do you know how to remove the deb file that you just installed?
15:45<Gators>aparently I need binutils and gcc, whatever those are.
15:46<nadir>if dependencies are missing you can run "apt-get install -f "
15:46<garn32>Gators, ok first we'll need to find what it installed as try running 'dpkg -l | grep oss' at the command line
15:47<garn32>Gators, that should show you everything with to do with oss that you've installed. Did that work for you?
15:47<Gators> lost me.
15:48<garn32>Gators, which part lost you?
15:48<Gators>I'm just lost in general right now.

15:50<garn32>Gators, the driver should be installed, do you know how to check which drivers are running?
15:51<Gators>this is the type of driver that....well....see, I have this sound card with 8 inputs and 8 outputs, that in windows I have a control panel for it to route things and set levels and such.
15:51<garn32>Gators, run 'lsmod' that will list out the loaded drivers, also know as kernel modules

16:32<Olavo>ayi, what's your problem with ldap?
16:33<analog_>sney: it used the e1000e driver and is HW wise a 82571EB chip
16:34<sney>mio: it'll install automatically if you use the debian packages for your nvidia driver. so just install nvidia-kernel-dkms linux-headers-686 (or amd64 depending)
16:35<sney>analog_: I know some of those cards need extra firmware files for more advanced features, do you ever see missing firmware warnings?
16:35<analog_>sney_: i should check dmesg and /var/log/messages
16:35<sney>that's where I'd look. it also tends to come up if you update the initramfs
16:36<analog_>should be unrelated, they box has a realtec 8111 chip aswell which asked for a FW during install, and a intel single port 1000pt too.
16:37<sney>should be unrelated yes

21:12-!-dsplayer14 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
21:12<grummund>additional debug here -
21:13<fix2>rebooting and hoping that fixes it
21:17<fix2>it did not fix it
21:17<fix2>my keyboard works only until I login
21:17<fix2>wtf is going on, can anyone help?
21:18<sney_>fix2: more details please, what kind of environment is this
21:18<fix2>when my keyboard issue began I was using gimp to edit some text on an image
21:18<fix2>debian squeeze gdm3
21:19<fix2>some popup came up from the system bar and asked if I wanted to enable "soft keys"
21:19<fix2>and I just clicked no
21:19<fix2>and BAM, my keyboard is disabled
21:19-!-dodo [~dodo@] has joined #debian
21:19<dodo>where i can see the applications that are installed with Tasksel?
21:19<fix2>ive no idea why the popup came or what softkeys is, but it popped up while I was editing text with gimp on a png image
21:19<abrotman>grummund: ls -ld /tmp/
21:20<sney_>softkeys is the extra buttons on a keyboard or a laptop, stuff like volume control or application launch buttons
21:20<fix2>yeah I have those extra keys but never used them
21:20<grummund>abrotman: for some reason it's drwxr-xr-x :-/
21:21<abrotman>that's wonky
21:21<fix2>Oh SLow Keys
21:21<sney_>fix2: if you create a new user and log in with the new user, does it work normally?
21:21<fix2>I said soft keys I found the issue, Slow Keys is enabled
21:21<fix2>even tho I clicked no
21:21<fix2>somehow it got enabled
21:21<sney_>hmm, I don't even know what that is
21:21<fix2>I meant slow keys
21:21-!-AndreMachado [~AndreMach@] has quit [Quit: AndreMachado]
21:22<fix2>yay! I went into system preferences for the keyboard, disabled slow keys and I have my keyboard back
21:22<abrotman>cool beans?
21:22<dodo>Where I can see the list of applications that are installed by Taskel?
21:22<ewbs>fix2: slow keys = only accept long keypresses...hehe, i never heard of it either
21:23<abrotman>grummund: all fixed up ?
21:23<fix2>yeah the pop up I clicked the x at the corner of the window to close and it ended up enabled somehow
21:23<abrotman>dodo: man tasksel
21:23<fix2>I must have enabled it in gimp while working with the text editor
21:23<fix2>thanks guys im off so others can get help

21:36<jcress>I'm having trouble with an install. My laptop doesn't have an optical drive, so I"m installing from USB. The usb drive become sda and the internal hdd is sdb. when I try to install grub to MBR it fails, with "grub install (hd0) failed"
21:37-!-Sidicas [~AndChat47@] has joined #debian
21:37<Jzebus> is there an option to choose where to install GRUB?
21:37<kop`>jcress: Perhaps expert mode? See the <install guide>.
21:37<Sidicas>Jzebus: what are you trying to do?
21:38<Jzebus>as kop` says, the alternate install then choose where to install grub
21:38<Jzebus>sorry Sidicas, was asking jcress but forgot to type the name
21:38<kop`>jcress: I suspect that it might be easiest to use the shell on the installer and install grub yourself. Either way you might have to read the directions. I can't recall offhand how to do it.
21:39-!-steveo031986 [] has joined #debian
21:39<jcress>Well, it lets me specify where to install, i tried /dev/sdb or /dev/hd1 but both fail
21:40<kop`>jcress: Do you have to specific it in grub terminology?
21:40<Jzebus>jcress, is /dev/sdb not an option?
