00:52<reklipz>The following NEW packages will be installed:

06:38<y0da89>i am a complete noob these are my first steps on linux
06:38<babilen>y0da89: And which card is it? To what kind of network do you want to connect? (encrypted? wpa? wpa2? wep? ...)
06:39<y0da89>I have no internet connection and all the tutorials I found need internet
06:39<babilen>y0da89: Can you connect your computer via ethernet?

06:40-!-mode/#debian [+l 522] by debhelper
06:40<devil>y0da89: 'nothing happens' is a very poor error description
06:40<babilen>y0da89: So you do have the possibility to connect via ethernet. That is good -- I would recommend that we focus on why that isn't working instead of getting your wireless to work. What did you do and what happens?
06:41<reklipz>y0da89: Try plugging the ethernet connection when at the first screen of the installer, or even before you power up the machine.
06:41<reklipz>err... I'll let babilen take this one. :)
06:41<y0da89>I connect the Ethernet cable, nothing pops up
06:41<babilen>ugh, all are welcome to help!
06:42<y0da89>and when I use my browser i cannot reach any website

06:43<babilen>y0da89: I'll be back in a second, but that sounds as if you completed the installation already. Please tell us a little bit more about your setup and how you connect to the internet.
06:43<reklipz>y0da89: Okay. So it sounds like you already have installed Debian then. You are actually having a problem using Debian now? You signed in and such.
06:43<y0da89>Debian is installed. I didn't know I had to connect the computer before installation
06:44<reklipz>Okay, good. You don't have to really, as you said, you got it installed, :).
06:44<babilen>y0da89: You need to install firmware for your wireless card to work (Install the firmware-iwlwifi package) -- How are you trying to connect to the network right now?
06:44<reklipz>We thought you were having trouble with the installer, but we see that's not the case now.
06:44<y0da89>That is not the case

06:45<y0da89>I know babilen but I cannot reach the web even with ethernet
06:45<babilen>y0da89: See also for help with your wifi. But lets get you online now via ethernet. I take it that the cable is plugged in?
06:46<reklipz>y0da89: You need to be connected to the internet, or have a way to transfer files to the machine you're working on. The easiest way to do that is to use a wired ethernet port on the machine if that's available. It sounds like that is, but that that is "not working" either, is that right?
06:46<babilen>y0da89: Do you know if you use network manager? How are you trying to connect to the internet?
06:46-!-hbomb [] has joined #debian
06:47<y0da89>I do not have the network manager. I didn't find it in the menus
06:47<devil>y0da89: lspci -nn in a pastebin would help to identify your wired/wireless chips
06:47<devil>just in case, your wired chip needs non-free firmware as well
06:47<reklipz>y0da89: From what machine are you currently typing to us in IRC with?
06:47<y0da89>Win7 x64
06:48<reklipz>Is this the same machine that you are trying to get Debian to run on as well?
06:48<y0da89>nope my PC is on Win and laptop is on debian
06:49<reklipz>Okay, good.
06:49<reklipz>Do you have a flash drive handy?
06:49<reklipz>If so, download this file: and transfer it to the laptop with the flash drive.
06:50<y0da89>i have a usb key
06:50<babilen>y0da89: Please run "lspci -nn|grep -i ethernet" and give me the alphanumerical identifier at the end. (It should look like [abcd:1234])
06:51<reklipz>babilen: You said you welcomed help, :). Installing the firmware is the most direct approach; probably the fastest too.
06:52<reklipz>babilen: Agreed that getting the wired up would be better, though. Don't have to tackle any encryption etc. immediately.

06:53-!-Blue_Hat [~TwinKam20@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
06:53<y0da89>but didn't work
06:53<babilen>reklipz: The problem will be that y0da89 can't use network-manager to connect to his/her wireless network (which is most likely encrypted) -- This is due to the fact that (s)he used CD1 (as opposed to DVD1) for the install which only includes a part of the Gnome desktop environment. I therefore think that it is a better approach to either: 1. Get him/her online via ethernet or 2. Install from DVD1 and provide firmware during the install (/msg ...
06:53<babilen>... dpkg installer firmware) or 3. Use kmuto images to install via wireless or 4. Figure out why the ethernet is not working.
06:53<babilen>I am currently pursuing 4.
06:53<reklipz>y0da89: Didn't work... You couldn't install it? You installed it, but there is no apparent change?

06:54<reklipz>babilen: Sounds like you got this one, :).
06:55<babilen>That card needs firmware as well.
06:55<y0da89>I installed it bug then I got a configure message and the terminal stops
06:55<y0da89>oh yeah, too 1337
06:56<y0da89>I may ask a dumb question. Is it possible to get a CD/DVD image which has all the drivers included?
06:56<reklipz>That's not a dumb question. The problem is that the firmware is not distributed, not the driver.
06:57<babilen>y0da89: We also provide (netinstall) images with firmware (/msg dpkg firmware images) and you can provide the firmware during the installation on a USB stick (/msg dpkg installer firmware)

06:57-!-DanishRolls [] has joined #debian
06:57<babilen>y0da89: You do, however, only need to install on your box.
06:58<y0da89>Well what is the easiest solution for a noob like me? My computer completely worked under Linux Mint debian Edition
06:58<babilen>y0da89: To do that download on your windows box and copy it to your USB stick.
06:59<babilen>y0da89: Debian doesn't ship firmware by default as binary-only firmware is considered non-free. Sorry about that and the ramifications of that decision.
07:00<reklipz>y0da89: So, the way you installed the firmware-iwlwifi package this morning; do the same with the firmware-realtek package. That will get your wired ethernet interface working, and then we can walk you through getting your WiFi working.
07:01<babilen>y0da89: You can then plug your USB stick into the Debian box and copy the .deb somewhere else (e.g. your home directory or ~/downloads/ or whatever) -- After you've done that open a terminal and run "su" and enter your root password to acquire superuser priviliges. You can then install the firmware package with "dpkg -i /path/to/firmware-realtek_0.28+squeeze1_all.deb"
07:02-!-janos_ [~janos@] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
07:02<babilen>y0da89: Once you've done that you can reload the module (which will now find the firmware) with "modprobe -r r8169 ; modprobe r8169" and your ethernet card should work. Try to activate the network with "ifup eth0" and report back :)
07:02<reklipz>babilen: Which portion of the GDE is left out of CD1 vs DVD1 that causes the issue with NetworkManager?
07:02<babilen>reklipz: network-manager-gnome is not on CD1 for example.
07:03<reklipz>babilen: Ah, that'll do it, :).

07:12<babilen>hmm ...
07:12<babilen>hang on
07:13<babilen>forget that -- I'm with reklipz on this one (as we want to install network manager) -- Just run "ifconfig eth0 up ; dhclient eth0" and tell us if you got an address.

07:13<babilen>Ah, always so many options.
07:13<reklipz>That's a good thing. Overwhelming for the new users though... And the DFSG forced complications like this don't help either.
07:14<y0da89>ok wait it is still connected to the box in the other room
07:15<SynrG>take care not to blame the DFSG. the fault lies in getting vendors on-side with the FOSS community to take their concerns seriously and provide source
07:15<SynrG>but i agree it's frustrating
07:15<y0da89>failed to get attributes of etc/resolv.conf
07:15<y0da89>no such file or directory

07:16<babilen>y0da89: Please run "ping" and tell me if it transmits packages (should look like "64 bytes from icmp_req=1 ttl=51 time=21.0 ms")
07:18<Turl>you can "echo nameserver > /etc/resolv.conf" then (or your prefered DNS service IP) to gain full connectivity
07:18<reklipz>SynrG: Yes, I was going to clarify my statement, but I decided not to. I wasn't being negative, just stating that explaining the DFSG and it's implications to new users isn't something that is easily done.
07:18<SynrG>y0da89: which media you use to do the install (DVD or otherwise) makes no difference. be patient and we'll help solve things with what you have.
07:18<babilen>y0da89: You are online! Now try "ping" -- Is that working?
07:18<SynrG>reklipz: agreed
07:19<reklipz># aptitude update ; aptitude full-upgrade -- yay!
07:19<y0da89>as SUN
07:20<SynrG>it's just culture shock. it would be like coming from a culture where tipping is not their custom, failing to tip, and then wondering why you get bad service next time you visit :p
07:20<reklipz>Might have to edit sources.list first as I still have the bug that the installer doesn't successfully comment out the cd source.
07:20<babilen>y0da89: Ok. You are online. As it is quite cumbersome to connect like this every single time I would recommend to install a couple of packages.
07:21<reklipz>y0da89: yeah, as super user. but follow babilen's advice first; I'm not sure what packages you'll need.
07:21<babilen>y0da89: We will have to configure access to package repositories first though. Please edit /etc/apt/sources.list and make sure it looks like the example I am pasting in a second.
07:22<y0da89>ok it downloads something

07:24<reklipz>good. listen to babilen.
07:24-!-edog [~edog@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:26<babilen>y0da89: After you've edited that file you have to run "apt-get update" to fetch information from these repositories and activate them. After you've done that you should be able to install every package that is available in Debian's stable repositories. I would start by running "apt-get install network-manager-gnome firmware-iwlwifi" which installs the tools and firmware you need to connect to the internet (ethernet and wireless) from now on.
07:28<babilen>y0da89: Once you've done that (check that it is working after a reboot!) you are free to do whatever you want. You might want to install and configure sudo with "apt-get install sudo ; adduser YOURUSER sudo" (replace YOURUSER with your username). The most important first step, however, is to download and install security updates. That can be done with "apt-get update ; apt-get dist-upgrade"

07:31<babilen>reklipz: You are thinking about aptitude's full-upgrade/dist-upgrade
07:31<themill>reklipz: apt-get doesn't know "full-upgrade". aptitude knows both but encourages the use of "full-upgrade" rather than "dist-upgrade" since dist-ugprade isn't just about changing from one release to another which many seem to think it is
07:31<reklipz>Turl: Man page for apt-get says nothing about full-upgrade; aptitude says: "This command was originally named dist-upgrade for historical reasons, and aptitude still recognizes dist-upgrade as a synonym for full-upgrade."
07:32<y0da89>ok sry for the delay it downloads and install something
07:32<reklipz>Why the difference between apt-get and aptitude?
07:32<y0da89>with the upgrade command
07:32<babilen>y0da89: That sounds wonderful :) Congratulations and sorry for the additional work.

08:36<rockdollar>I see, what is Debian all about?
08:37<rockdollar>maybe I should read more, I chose Debian because other Distros base themselves on it

10:24<babilen>chico_marx: Which version of Debian do you use and which kernel version do you have installed?
10:25<babilen>Rockdollar: yes, but you can also use apt-get if you prefer that. Some people like graphical package managers such as synaptics, but I am not a fan.
10:25<Nemoder>Rockdollar: aptitude has been the recommended installation tool now for awhile
10:26-!-xxdinjoh [] has joined #debian

10:31<bluenemo>is it not a good idea to apt-get upgrade in normal chroot? i cant umount /dev/ after it as stuff like udevd and cups (which after the upgrade run twice) and so on is using it.. i can kill them but i thought i'd ask :)
10:31<SynrG>unlikely. looks like the site is not contactable
10:31<SynrG>a 404 is a specific error response code which an uncontactable site, by definition, cannot return :)

10:38<chico_marx>oh I see... thanks
10:39<babilen>chico_marx: In order to install the nvidia driver you have to install headers for your kernel. Could you paste the output of "aptitude search ~i~nlinux-" to please?

10:43<babilen>chico_marx: Great! They are installed already. In order to install the nvidia driver you would run "aptitude -r -t squeeze-backports install nvidia-kernel-dkms" which leaves us with the need to configure Xorg to use them.
10:44<babilen>chico_marx: That is done by: mkdir /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d ; echo -e 'Section "Device"\n\tIdentifier "My GPU"\n\tDriver "nvidia"\nEndSection' > /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf

15:33<pablum>itym, a question to prompt theoretical discussions, but i actually wish to know (or am too stupid about what backports are to ask the right q)
15:34<reklipz>backports are packages from testing (or beyond?) that are compiled and crafted to work with stable.
15:34<pablum>my guess (based on what you say) is that the same issues are at issue for lenny but even more so than for whatever is stable now

16:44<grueners>does anybody know what to do with the package?

16:52<rik_>grueners: you can also download the .tar.gz file from the adobe website and unpack it and copy the .so file to the correct location. This isn't the Debian Way though
16:52<grueners>thanks a lot retrospectacus, i'll do that :)

18:04<dpkg>somebody said quota was a Debian package for managing disk space quotas. It can be made to cap space usage by certain uids or gids; see /usr/share/doc/HOWTO/en-txt/Quota.gz (in the "doc-linux-nonfree-text" package) for a (slightly out-of-date) introduction.
18:04<petemc>do you think quota has changed much?

21:15<utkesmer>yes i do understand that and i'm very happy about it
21:15<pparadis>okay, please continue then, and please do not hit enter constantly.
21:16<utkesmer>so now, there is a game called soldat, and it has dedicated server program, soldat dedicated server, i'm a new linux user, i was trying to run 4 server and 1 irc bot from my debian vps
21:17<utkesmer>i ran 4 servers, and also the irc bot successfully, i installed mysql for irc bot btw, my vps is in istanbul, turkey, when we play in our servers, the ping is very low, but sometimes there are some lag spikes

21:17-!-bergerx [~bergerx@] has joined #debian
21:17<utkesmer>you can easily see that, it gets unplayable sometims, whatever then i tried ask in irc channel, why is there lag when pings are that low?
21:18<utkesmer>some guys told me that, if you have very low ping and still lag, most likely your vps's memory may not be enough for your servers etc
21:19<pparadis>utkesmer: first, please understand that we provide support for things that are in the debian repositories. that said, it would be helpful to see the output of "free -m" during periods of lag, along with iotop output perhaps. you may indeed be running out of real memory and swap thrashing.

21:50-!-bst_ [] has joined #debian
21:52<utkesmer>thanks pparadis, i thought that lagging problem is related to memory usage and i ruined the processes :) now it's ok, i want to ask one more thing, how to add something to autostart? or how to make somethinglike a script that even if the ircbot or one of the servers crash that script will restart it
21:54<pparadis>utkesmer: you can google for information on how to write debian init scripts. you can also do something basic like run a basic shell script in a screen session that starts the bot in a loop that will restart it if it does/doesn't exit with a particular exit code.
21:55<pparadis>the latter is a barebones way to keep something running, btw.
21:56<pparadis>in that case, to truly kill the bot, you'd kill the script running in the screen session first, then kill the bot's process.
21:57<pparadis>utkesmer: to give you an idea of how to start something at boot in a screen session, this is how i run irssi on a debian VM for irc: "@reboot screen -U -d -m -S IRC irssi"
21:57<pparadis>that's a crontab entry for my user account on the VM.
21:57<utkesmer>i heard that crontab thing before, yes

22:40<sney_>ok, so what's the issue? that it's not detecting your specific brand & model of monitor? is there a usability concern?
22:43-!-equation_ [~equation@] has quit [Quit: Ran away]
22:43<Yammer>Yes it's not detecting it at all... I'm "stuck" in a res of "1024x768". I don't care if it won't see the specific brand or model, but it's a flat panel and I can get a res much higher then that. Would be nice for game and watching movies, etc

23:02<sney_>anyway, you seem to have disabled nouveau somehow so you're just using the vesa vga driver
23:03<sney_>what did you do through software center exactly
23:04<Yammer>I just downloaded the driver for my video card, then rebootede
23:04<sney_>what driver did you download and from where
23:05<sney_>or, more specifically, did you download the .run file from and use it
23:05-!-Danniel-Lara [] has quit [Quit: Saindo]
23:05<sney_>good. don't
23:06<Yammer>I know form experience not to to do that, I tried to install a driver on another computer once for a TNT card for their site... drove me nuts and broke X
23:06<sney_>yeah, that's what the nvidia installer does. so what did you do then?
23:07<Yammer>I Just downloaded the 96.**.** driver for the software center
23:07-!-TheBonsai [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

23:08<Yammer>It's in Debian's repostory

23:09<Yammer>yes I think it was that package
23:09-!-JuanLunaN [~jota@] has joined #debian
23:10<sney_>ok, can you run 'lsmod' in a terminal and see if the module 'nvidia' is loaded? I'd tell you to grep but I don't remember if the legacy one adds a string
23:10<Yammer>sure... let me run that
23:12<Yammer>it says "nouveau" is running
23:12-!-dvs [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:12<Yammer>Isn't that the generic driver?
23:14<Yammer>Wait, I see "nvidia" running too
23:14-!-JuanLunaN [~jota@] has quit []
23:14<deitrick>no opensource nvidia drivers
23:14<Yammer>I know, poo on them for that
23:15<sney_>Yammer: ok, the nvidia and nouveau drivers can't coexist so that's why it wound up running vesa, though you're lucky, usually X just gives up
23:16<Yammer>lol, I guess I am lucky
23:16<Yammer>I was lucky to find you to help me!
23:16<sney_>Yammer: can you look in /etc/modprobe.d/ for a file that contains the line 'blacklist nouveau'? usually it'll have nvidia in the name, e.g. nvidia-kernel-common.conf
23:17-!-Baloo [] has joined #debian
23:17<Yammer>Ok sney, let me look

23:18-!-m0li [~m0li@] has joined #debian
23:18<sney_>unfortunately, most #debian helpers are pretty familiar with nvidia headaches.
23:18<Yammer>I understand that
23:18<Yammer>I found it
23:19<Yammer>In that folder is a file named "nvidia-kernel-common.conf"
23:19-!-TheBonsai [] has joined #debian
23:19<sney_>and that file contains 'blacklist nouveau'?
23:19<sney_>ok, do you remember when you installed when it asked you if you wanted a generic initramfs or a targeted initramfs with only the drivers (modules) that your system requires
23:20<Yammer>I don't recall it asking me anything like that... I must have missed it...?
23:21-!-grummund is now known as Guest2326
23:21-!-grummund [] has joined #debian
23:21<sney_>well, anyway, when you selected targeted it decided that your system required nouveau, so it loads nouveau before even getting to the part where it's supposed to be blacklisted. nouveau can't be unloaded once it has been loaded, so now we arrive at your issue
23:21-!-m0li [~m0li@] has quit []
23:22<Yammer>I guess I have to drop a few run levels to fix it?
23:22<sney_>regenerate your initramfs with the command 'update-initramfs -u' as root
23:22<Yammer>Ok, thank you
23:22-!-phillip [~phillip@] has joined #debian
23:22<sney_>because of limitations in the nivida driver, you also have to tell X to use it, as it won't autodetect like the built-ins
23:23<sney_>you can generate an xorg.conf if you want, or do this: mkdir -p /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d;echo -e 'Section "Device"\n\tIdentifier "My GPU"\n\tDriver "nvidia"\nEndSection' > /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf

23:27-!-Jekyll_ [~whodare@] has joined #debian
23:28<sney_>copy and paste if you're on your debian system. all it does is create the xorg.conf.d directory in /etc/X11 if it doesn't exist, then make a 5-line mini xorg.conf that tells X to use nvidia and leaves everything else dynamic
23:28<Yammer>Ah ok, thank you, I'll do that now
23:29<Yammer>Should I reboot or log out, log back in?
23:29<sney_>with that file in place and the initramfs regenerated, you should be able to safely reboot and have normal X activity
23:29<sney_>what gpu was this anyway, that you needed the 96xx driver?
23:30<Yammer>Ok thank you so much for your help
23:30<sney_>(just out of curiosity)
23:30<Yammer>It's a GeForce3 Ti200
23:30<Yammer>I am going to get a new card for this computer soon, I will use upto a x4 AGP
23:30<sney_>ah, neat. I had (still have, somewhere?) an OG Geforce3
23:30<Yammer>lol cool
23:30-!-deitrick [] has left #debian [Leaving]
23:31<sney_>anyway, fyi for 4x agp users, you can actually use 8x cards as they are compatible, they will not be quite as fast as they would native but they work otherwise. should broaden your options. I ran a radeon 9800XT for about a year before replacing my agp 4x board.
23:31-!-grummund [] has joined #debian
23:32<Yammer>Hmmmm, I might get one of those then
23:32<sney_>the geforce FX (5) series was considered worthless by a lot of people so they're probably still absurdly cheap as well.
23:33<Yammer>I might go with an ATI card, I have an AMD cup
23:33<Yammer>Athlon XP 2200
23:34<Yammer>This is my older machine, I built it myself back in 2004 lol
23:34<sney_>hmm, you're probably about my age, then. anyway, reboot and see if it works
