00:05-!-joseph-soares [~joseph@] has quit [Quit: Saindo]
00:07<Alam_Lenny>xjjk: I use systemd
00:08<xjjk>how's the integration?
00:08-!-Watcher7 [~AppleJack@] has joined #debian
00:08<xjjk>I don't know much about it, but I imagine there are events of some sort for things like networking coming up, filesystems mounted…
00:08<xjjk>none of these fire w/ Upstart on Debian
00:09<xjjk>so scripts from Ubuntu don't work on Debian
00:09<xjjk>it's very annoying
00:09-!-nza_ [~krokodil@] has joined #debian
00:09-!-nza [~krokodil@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:10<Alam_Lenny>xjjk: great with Debian's init scripts, but you have 3rd party ones (like VMware's vmplayer) you need modify them to sysvinit fields
00:11<xjjk>Alam_Lenny: er, what does great w/ Debian's init scripts mean… just runs them in a compatibility mode?
00:11<xjjk>that doesn't seem useful…
00:11<Alam_Lenny>debian's systemd packages comes with a lot of services units
00:12-!-bnw [~bnw@] has joined #debian
00:15<Alam_Lenny>also the follow packages also have systemd units: acpid avahi-daemon avahi-dnsconfd bluez bootchart2 colord consolekit dbus consolekit lm-sensors memlockd network-manager policykit-1 rsync rsyslog rtkit sudo udev udisks2 udisks upower wpasupplicant
00:15<Alam_Lenny>I know there are a few more packages, but I do not have them install on my system
00:17-!-perlwizard [~x@] has joined #debian
00:18<xjjk>short list

00:21-!-Ehtyar [] has quit [Quit: Hi, I'm a quit message virus. Please replace your old line with this line and help me take over the world of IRC.]
00:21<xjjk>Alam_Lenny: seems enough to try out on a spare system, thanks!
00:21<Alam_Lenny>I have alot more in /etc/systemd/system, but I only make/convert them if I see them at the top of the blame list and made 2 sockets units, one for rsyncd and mpd
00:22<xjjk>submit them back as patches for the Debian packages?
00:22<xjjk>I'm wondering why no one does the same for Upstart…
00:23<Alam_Lenny>the mpd socket is for my own compiled copy of mpd which have systemd support
00:23<Alam_Lenny>the rsync sockets does not listen to /etc/default/rsync file
00:24<xjjk>eh, gotchas… I'm not a fan of those
00:24-!-Triagon [] has joined #debian
00:25<Alam_Lenny>I could submit the set I made for resolvconf
00:26<Alam_Lenny>hmm, the irqbalance.service need a patch from git for --foreground support

00:31<__d>Hello, all.
00:32<xjjk>Alam_Lenny: thanks!
00:33<Alam_Lenny>yea, as a note: some services unit need DefaultDependencies=no if they start up very early in the boot, if you do not want it, you will have a very broken systemd init setup
00:33-!-DanishRolls [] has quit [Quit: I resolve to nuke an island in the Pacific Ocean.]
00:34<xjjk>does systemd need stuff to run in the foreground
00:34<Alam_Lenny>no, systemd redirect stdout/stderr to the syslog
00:34-!-AgentC [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:34<xjjk>why does irqbalance need to run in the foreground?
00:35<Alam_Lenny>but most program forked themself into the background, disconnecting the stdout/stderr handles
00:35<Alam_Lenny>it make it easy on systemd to know what pid goes with what service
00:35-!-AgentC_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:36-!-zafrina [~zafrina@] has left #debian [Saliendo]
00:36<xjjk>Upstart handles that fine, I think…

00:43<Alam_Lenny>xjjk: the thing is, with the stdout/stderr hooked into the syslog/journal, I can do this: I can got the last few mesages from the program
00:44-!-korky2 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:44<Alam_Lenny>hmm, why do I have memlockd.service disabled?
00:44<xjjk>I'm not interested in journal very much
00:44<xjjk>but nice feature otherwise
00:46<Alam_Lenny>oh, my old etc memlockd.service is overwrite the lib version
00:47-!-Watcher7 [~AppleJack@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:48<Alam_Lenny>no, my version read /etc/default/memlockd and pass DAEMON_OPTS and also tell systemd the PID file, BUT I seem to forget to reenable it when memlockd included it's own service unit...

02:09<rSw>in passwd
02:09<rSw>now it looks like normal shell
02:09<Osiris_X>rSw: :) yes the 1st step is to be actually using the bash shell
02:09-!-kilelme [~kilelme@] has joined #debian
02:09<Osiris_X>for history, bash-completion etc
02:10<rSw>bin/bash-completion ?

02:10<rSw>nvm it already does it
02:10-!-fisted [] has joined #debian
02:11<Osiris_X>rSw: usually required some modification to /etc/bash.bashrc or ~/.bashrc to activate it
02:11<Osiris_X>(as does command-not-found and autojump dir completion which I also find useful)
02:12<rSw>the user created in installation had that but the other users were created by some script

02:21<Not_Jak>Can anybody help me with my kernel panic?
02:21<jj>what kernel panic ya having there buddy
02:21<Not_Jak>Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount rootfs on unknown-block(0,0)
02:22<Not_Jak>I've already tried rebuilding initramfs
02:22-!-DebianLover [] has joined #debian
02:22<nbags>Not_Jak: what did you do before this error started?
02:22<Not_Jak>Set up my boot loader. I have yet to successfully boot Linux once
02:23<Not_Jak>I have a UEFI motherboard, so I already set up the /boot partition
02:23<nbags>Not_Jak: check the root= option on your kernel command line
02:23<Not_Jak>Is that under grub.cfg?
02:24<nbags>Not_Jak: i think so
02:24<nbags>Not_Jak: you should also be able to change it on-the-fly in your bootloader
02:25<Not_Jak>I don't see any lines that say "root=...", but I see a couple of lines that say: set root='hd0,msdos5'
02:25<Not_Jak>My root partition is sda5
02:27<nbags>Not_Jak: looks right then. what filesystem are you using (on /dev/sda5)? are you using a default kernel or something custom?
02:27<nbags>Not_Jak: try adding root=/dev/sda5 to the kernel command line as well
02:28<Not_Jak>I'm using EFI System (0xEF, basically FAT32).
02:28<nbags>Not_Jak: the line that starts with 'linux /boot/vmlinuz ....'
02:28-!-milo [] has joined #debian
02:28-!-hazard2 [] has quit [Quit: This computer has gone to sleep]
02:28<nbags>Not_Jak: i'm talking about your rootfs, not /boot ...
02:28<Not_Jak>Hm, it's referencing root by it's UUID
02:28-!-milo is now known as Ormie
02:28-!-tiago [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:28<nbags>Not_Jak: that should be ok then, as long as the UUID is correct
02:29<Not_Jak>Oh, my bad. I'm using ext4 or root
02:29-!-fayaz [~quassel@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:29<nbags>Not_Jak: can u take a screenshot/photo?
02:30<nbags>Not_Jak: maybe it can't load the initrd. the root stuff looks ok
02:30<Not_Jak>I'm afraid not
02:30<Ormie>is there a way to install wheezy and install gnome 2 manually?
02:30<Not_Jak>The cfg file is loading initrd correctly
02:30<jj>does anyone know how to set up wireless card on backtrack
02:31<nbags>Not_Jak: are u using a default kernel? does it have ext4 support?
02:31<Ormie>jj, this is the debian support chan.
02:31<nbags>Not_Jak: also, when it boots can you see a line that its properly detecting /dev/sda5 as ext4?
02:31<jj>i know yeah but thought you guys may know
02:32-!-jj [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
02:33<Not_Jak>nbags: I am using a kernel with ext4 support, and it doesn't display anything before the kernel panic hits
02:33<nbags>Not_Jak: nothing about ext4 hey?
02:34<nbags>Not_Jak: does it say anything about /dev/sda?
02:34<Not_Jak>nbags: Nothing
02:34<nbags>Not_Jak: also is your /boot on /dev/sda or somewhere in EFI land?
02:34<Not_Jak>nbags: It's on /dev/sda1

02:36-!-KindTwo [] has joined #debian
02:36<nbags>Not_Jak: in case its just trying to mount before drivers are loaded

02:45<nbags>Not_Jak: its probably something EFI-related, which im not familiar with. a full screenshot would help though
02:45<Not_Jak>What do you need a screenshot of?
02:46-!-ompaul [~ompaul@] has joined #debian
02:46<nbags>Not_Jak: the last page or so of the kernel booting
02:47<nbags>Not_Jak: if its not saying anything about sda or ext4 then it could be a driver issue (sata/sas driver). i.e. the kernel or initrd lacks the required driver
02:47<Not_Jak>Literally the only thing that is being shown is the kernel panic. Would you like me to PM you what it prints?
02:48<Not_Jak>nbags: Literally the only thing that is being shown is the kernel panic. Would you like me to PM you what it prints?
02:48<nbags>why not
02:49<Not_Jak>Okay, this will take a minute to type up
02:49<nbags>Not_Jak: there probably isnt much i can do to help :( don';t bother

03:21<Not_Jak>Darn it! I keep running into a problem that's extremely annoying. I have yet to boot Linux successfully, so I've been using the Live CD. I keep trying to change a .cfg file, but every time I reboot the changes I've made are erased!
03:22<Not_Jak>I've done it as root as well as after chrooting in to /root (/dev/sda5)
03:23<Not_Jak>Does anybody know how to change it so any changes I make to my /boot partition are permanent?
03:24-!-vrm [~dima@] has joined #debian
03:24<ompaul>Not_Jak: what are you trying to install on?
03:24<Not_Jak>A 320GB HDD
03:25<ompaul>in what kind of hardware
03:25<ompaul>what make
03:25<Not_Jak>Specifically, I'm trying to change the grub.cfg file on my boot partition (/dev/sda1)
03:25<Not_Jak>Oh, ASRock Z77 Extreme4 motherboard (UEFI)
03:25<Not_Jak>It's a computer I built
03:25<ompaul>what kernel are you trying to install
03:26<ompaul>what version of debian
03:26<Not_Jak>Arch, actually. I only ask here because this is the only IRC channel on the internet where I can get any help, though
03:26<ompaul>well here's the gig
03:26<dpkg>it has been said that arch is a hardware architecture (i386, amd64, armel, mips, mipsel, sparc, powerpc, alpha, hppa, s390 && ia64). Also a source control revision system (GNU arch). Arch (and its twin brother ArX) resides at, or, or #arch Since lenny, /bin/arch has disappeared, use "uname -m" instead, or <architecture>, or <arch linux>.
03:26<ompaul>so kindly go away
03:26-!-Volley [] has joined #debian
03:27<Not_Jak>Will you at least tell me if there's an easy fix so I can edit the file? Or am I just screwed and stuck with #arch-linux (which is dead)?
03:27<ompaul>if you said you wanted to install debian I'd have an answer
03:27<Not_Jak>I see how it is.
03:27<ompaul>I have no idea what arch do
03:27<ompaul>you are getting a panic
03:28<ompaul>I know how to use debian on uefi not to
03:28<Not_Jak>I imagine that the fix would be exactly the same (most errors I've hit so far are NOT Arch-specific)
03:28<ompaul>hint - chroot the partition and run the grub setup but that won't fix a panic
03:28<ompaul>debian will

03:29-!-kilelme [~kilelme@] has quit [Quit: going to coffe shop]

03:29<Not_Jak>I am seriously considering installing Debian, because I've been trying to install Arch for 5 days with no avail. I only finally set up the boot loader today. If I were to install Debian, is there an easy fix to this problem?
03:30<ompaul>get your installer from there the guy is a debian dev and makes good kernel
03:30<ompaul>that will solve it
03:30<Not_Jak>Can you recommend a distro?
03:31<ompaul>with that installer
03:31<ompaul>have fun
03:31<Not_Jak>As in, Squeeze, Lenny, or Etch
03:31<ompaul>it's squeeze
03:31<ompaul>you start with stable

03:55<chrisirc>Hello. How can I selectively upgrade packages without setting their flag that I wish them to be installed?
03:55<chrisirc>You know, that flag that prevents them from being removed by apt-get auto-remove.
03:56<ectospasm>chrisirc: for package in $package_list; do aptitude install $package; done
03:57<chrisirc>(I'm on 3G and upgrading stuff like openoffice which I'm not currently using doesn't make sense; so I want to e.g. upgrade dhcp3-client and its depenency isc-dhcp-client without setting the want-to-remain-installed flag on isc-dhcp-client,
03:57<chrisirc>so that when I remove dhcp3-client in the future it won't hold back isc-dhcp-client from being removed, too.)
03:57<ectospasm>the aptitude install command both installs and upgrades packages.
03:58<chrisirc>ectospasm, doesn't aptitude install set that flag I'm talking about?
03:58<chrisirc>apt-get install does.
04:01<chrisirc>Is there a way to get the *list* of packages that have that flag? And reset the flags?
04:01<ectospasm>I don't see any reference to such a flag in aptitude's man page. What's the proper name of that flag?
04:01<chrisirc>I don't know.
04:01<chrisirc>I just know that apt-get autoremove will not remove packages that "know" that the user wants them.
04:01<chrisirc>So there must be a bit somewhere saying that.
04:02<ectospasm>hmmm... it's packages that were automatically installed
04:02<chrisirc>And this bit is set then you issue on foo "apt-get install foo", but not on bar even if bar is a dependency of foo and installed along the way.
04:02<chrisirc>But if you issue "apt-get install bar", then bar will remain installed, too.
04:03<chrisirc>So there must be that bit somewhere.
04:03<ectospasm>you can set that with aptitude install ${package}&M
04:04<chrisirc>So that'd be for p in $list; do aptitude install $p&M; done
04:04<chrisirc>ah that probably won't upgrade actually?
04:04<chrisirc>So I still need to know what the bit was beforehand.
04:04<ectospasm>you may want to issue an echo between do and aptitude, just to verify it does what you want.
04:06<chrisirc>As I said, I'm not there yet. I need to know the current status for this.
04:06<ectospasm>well, the &M simply marks the package as having been automatically installed, which looks like makes it autoremove fodder
04:06<chrisirc>Yes, and as I don't want to ponder for every package whether it was non-auto-installed, I need to query it first, then install it, then restore the flag.
04:06<ectospasm>you can do aptitude search $list, and see which packages are marked with "i A"
04:08<ectospasm>Honestly I don't use the autoremove feature at all, so I'm just trying to think it through with you.
04:08<ectospasm>I hope I'm helping.
04:08<chrisirc>That *was* helpful.
04:09<chrisirc>I'm wondering why apt-get doesn't have any of this.
04:09<chrisirc>(I guess apt is really too old now?)
04:10<ectospasm>well, apt is the package manager which is a frontend to dpkg, from what I understand, and apt-get and aptitude are two frontends to apt.
04:10<chrisirc>yeah, I think that's right.

04:11<ectospasm>synaptic and update-manager are two more frontends to apt
04:11<chrisirc>But apt-get is part of the apt package.
04:11<chrisirc>So, that still makes it strange that if aptitude goes through apt, and hence apt is the tool that learnt about that new flag, that apt's own UI hasn't been updated.
04:11<ectospasm>right... there are a collection of utilities in apt such as apt-get, apt-cache, etc.
04:12<ectospasm>But apt is a subsystem where the CLI utilities apt-get, et. al. function, just like aptitude.

04:13-!-alephnull [~alok@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:13<ectospasm>apt-get provides a different interface, and by some respects full of more features than aptitude. By other respects, aptitude has more.
04:14-!-dmitry [~dmitry@] has joined #debian
04:14<dmitry>ive just installed google earth and no icon appeared
04:14<ectospasm>like if you run aptitude with no options, you get an ncurses TUI
04:14<chrisirc>Yes. Now if aptitude is able to show which packages are auto-installed, and it accesses the package database purely by using the 'apt' package, then the apt package must be able to provide that info.
04:14<ectospasm>dmitry: what DE are you using
04:14-!-Volley [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
04:15<dmitry>what is DE?
04:15<chrisirc>But then why have the user-accessible parts of the apt package, namely apt-get and the like, not been updated to be able to show that info, too?
04:15<ectospasm>dmitry: Desktop Environment, like GNOME or KDE
04:16<chrisirc>(Since they are part of the same 'apt' package as whatever aptitude is supposedly using.)
04:16<ectospasm>dmitry: did you install Google Earth via apt?
04:17<ectospasm>chrisirc: like I said, different implementations. apt-cache should show it, but it doesn't look like it shows that info by default.
04:18<chrisirc>No, what I want to say is:
04:18<ectospasm>dmitry: do you remember whether the Google Earth installation procedure updated your GNOME menu configuration?
04:18<chrisirc>if people writing the 'apt' package source code, which includes the apt-get and apt-cache tools, added the feature to query the auto status to their code,
04:18<ectospasm>dmitry: you may need to log out and log back in to update the menu
04:18<chrisirc>why didn't they also add code to the apt-get and apt-cache tools at the same time?
04:19<dmitry>ok ill try
04:19<chrisirc>Since they were already doing that work on their own code base?
04:19-!-Fudgey [] has joined #debian

04:19-!-bgmarete [~bgmarete@] has joined #debian
04:19<ectospasm>apt-get et. al. is simply a set of commands to interface with the apt layer. aptitude is a different command to access the apt layer
04:20-!-dmitry [~dmitry@] has joined #debian
04:20-!-Fudge [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:21<chrisirc>Yes, but if you write a lower layer of software and an upper layer on top to access it, and now you add features to your software lower layer, why would you not also expose those features in your *own* upper layer tools?
04:21<chrisirc>And instead only wait for someone else updating a different upper layer (aptitude) that's not your own?
04:22<dmitry>no icon
04:22<ectospasm>dmitry: I dunno, you may need to add the icon yourself.
04:22<chrisirc>If that's really what happened then that was stupid because testing becomes more difficult, your own upper layer becomes less worthwhile to use, and if you'd want to add it later then it's going to be more work to remember how to do it correctly.
04:23<ectospasm>dmitry: dmitry right-click on the menu, choose the menu editor. I don't really know, I don't use the menus in GNOME very much
04:23<ectospasm>chrisirc: I think you're misinterpreting things.
04:23<chrisirc>Maybe that's not what happened and I'm missing a way to access that data with the tools present in 'apt' (and I *do* wonder how aptitude gets at the flag).
04:23<ectospasm>the apt layer I speak of isn't a separate package
04:23<chrisirc>Yes, I get that. Which is what I'm doing.
04:23<chrisirc>ehr saying.
04:24<ectospasm>the apt package you refer to is the set of tools (apt-get, apt-cache, etc.) which are an interface to the apt databases.
04:24<chrisirc>And how does aptitude access that database?
04:24<ectospasm>the same way apt-get,apt-cache, et. al. do
04:24<chrisirc>With code from which package?

04:26-!-dmitry [~dmitry@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
04:26<ectospasm>chrisirc: since apt is maintained by the Debian community, I'd imagine Debian developers.

04:27-!-resmo [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
04:27<chrisirc>Does it matter if it's a group or one person?
04:27<ectospasm>apt is maintained by the APT Development Team
04:28<ectospasm> is aptitude
04:28<ectospasm>see "aptitude show <package>" for details.
04:28-!-resmo [] has joined #debian
04:29<chrisirc>Ok so your point is that my assumption that the core apt layer was originally written by a small group of people who also wrote apt-get and apt-cache, and that aptitude was then written on top of this core layer by a different group of people, is wrong.
04:30<ectospasm>right, I guess.
04:30<chrisirc>(My assumption also included that the original small group would have extended the core layer with the new flag.)
04:30<chrisirc>Fair enough.
04:30<chrisirc>So that makes "apt" (the tools) to be too old now.
04:31<chrisirc>(the user accessible tools, apt-get, apt-cache)
04:31<ectospasm>actually, there are a lot of configuration options you can apply to the apt tools
04:31<ectospasm>...perhaps aptitude has different defaults
04:31<chrisirc>Anyway it was always a mess and I'd love some article teach me how the pieces all interact.

09:51<sml>ectospasm: well the kvm vms both use /dev/mapper/vgX/foo(1/2) as that was the default. but the kvm seems to use this partition raw rather than it be formatted and so i wasn't sure if I could just resize the lvm like i would normally.
09:52<sml>i mean if it wasn't a virtual machine image i'd just use lvmresize, make it bigger, then i'd just use resize2fs afterwards.
09:52<hadret>sml: exactly this way
09:53<hadret>so Windows partition is on LVM too?
09:53<ectospasm>hadret: I highly doubt that
09:53-!-ironman [] has joined #debian
09:53<ectospasm>...unless you're talking about LVM on the host, Windows on the guest
09:53<ectospasm>or Windows + Linux guests
09:53<hadret>ectospasm: no, Linux host and Windows and Linux on LVM as guests
09:54<sml>yes. as in, the kvm images are on their own lvm partitions, but the guests are formatted with ext3 and ntfs respectively. im not doing anything silly like nested lvm (or whatever the correct term would be)
09:54<hadret>sml: so in that case, you are not storing images "as is", but rather use LVM as RAW device
09:54<hadret>that's good -- you can make snapshots
09:55<hadret>before you will proceed with any actions
09:55<sml>hadret: i regularly make snapshots and gzip them and pipe them to dd over ssh to a remote backup server.
09:56<ectospasm>sml: essentially you just need to resize the LVM partitions. I'm not sure how to do that with KVM (I don't use KVM), but it *should* be straight forward
09:56<sml>it's a bit overkill, so i have a much lighter backup script which just backs up my mysql dbs and apache config along with this like dpkg --get-selections. much lighter

10:09<sml>the apt priorities prevent upgrades otherwise. otherwise your whole system would end up getting upgraded to the versions of the software in backports . not what you want :)

10:41<ectospasm>am: is that in fglrx-control?
10:41<sakax>well it it ok to go for SID or is full of bugs?
10:41<sakax>is it*
10:41<perlwizard>try it and see
10:42<ectospasm>sakax: sid is more likely to contain bugs, but in practice it tends to be quite stable
10:42<ectospasm>right now is probably more stable than usual
10:42<sakax>everyone in here is on SID?
10:42<ectospasm>development in sid has slowed pending the transfer of wheezy from testing to stable.
10:42<ectospasm>sakax: is the version you want on wheezy?
10:42<perlwizard>sakax a lot of people are. even more on #debian-next
10:43<sakax>the version of rhythmbox i want is included in SIP
10:43<perlwizard>great, isn't it?
10:43<dierot>am do you have a gpu driver for your amd?

10:45<skinnyfatguy>I mean it is old and all, but you'd think that would mean it would have better support.

10:46<skinnyfatguy>ectospasm: It's an i865 I think.
10:46<ectospasm>I cite the nvidia driver dropping support for ancient cards periodically
10:46<ectospasm>skinnyfatguy: that means jack all to me
10:47<ectospasm> may be that particular GPU isn't well supported in Linux, and Intel didn't think it worthwhile to port the drivers over (or whatever was necessary)

15:15<mmc1>I build a package for amd64 & i386 archs. These 2 runs produce *.changes files, which point at a *_all.deb package, which is different (let's say it contains timestamp). So I cannot push those 2 changes files into a repo (it refuses since the hash is different). How to avoid having the arch-independent packages generated twice?
15:17<ansgar>mmc1: Build it only once, see dpkg-buildpackage -b/-B.

16:21<Aleric>I want to install debian a few times, so I don't want to use netinst. However, I also don't want to burn 8 DVD's :p. I understand there is a way to download to HDD and install from there, but what should I download then and how should I format that harddisk to store whatever I download?
16:22-!-autobus [~autobus@] has joined #debian
16:23<sney_>Aleric: the hd-media installers still use the installer ISOs in a way. are you doing a very specialized install? if not, DVD1 should be more than sufficient - or even CD1 depending
16:24-!-NIN [] has quit [Quit: NIN]
16:24<cybersphinx>Aleric: Or you set up a system with apt-cacher-ng, to cache the packages for the netinst.
16:24<sney_>or that, yes
16:24<Aleric>Oh, how would that work?
16:25<Aleric>That would even be better than using a HDD :)
16:26<cybersphinx>Aleric: Install apt-cacher-ng on a system you have around, then use it as proxy for the machines you install.

19:39<debdemon>hi, I have a beginner type question regarding permissions... can anyone help? if I want to change permissions so that a directory can be accessed by the user, what do I do?
19:39<debdemon>I tried to use chmod in terminal but when trying to access the file in a gui file manager, 'can't
19:40<debdemon>any ideas?
19:41<gotmynick>which permissions did you set? and... does the X session run under the same owner than the file?
19:41<debdemon>this will sound strange... I'm helping someone who was an expert at linux and isn't anymore
19:42-!-jamuraa [] has joined #debian
19:42<debdemon>I copied files on a usb drive and it didn't mount automatically so me, being not too good at debian linux, I created a directory and added an entry in fstab
19:42<debdemon>gotmynick, I tried chmod 755
19:42<gotmynick>directory needs "executable" perms to be able to "enter the directory"
19:42<gotmynick>that should be fine
19:42<debdemon>how do I do that?
19:43<debdemon>I have limited practice with permissions :-/
19:43<gotmynick>chmod 755 is write, read,"enter" to the owner, and "read and enter" to the gorup and to "anybody"
19:44<debdemon>what should I do then?
19:44<tuvwx>gotmynick: .profile isn't affecting bash. tested by logging in via ssh. maybe your DE sees it and your terminals inheretes it from the DE
19:44<debdemon>I think that the directory only has root permissions since I created the directory (the drive gets mounted to) as root
19:44<tuvwx>desktop env
19:44<debdemon>oh yeah

19:45<debdemon>I still don't know what to do
19:45<gotmynick>debdemon, not sure about your issue, if the mount point is 755, anybody should be able to see it
19:46<debdemon>I forget how to check the permissions of the directory
19:46<debdemon>but, it's not really there... so confusing
19:46<gotmynick>ls -l, stat, etc ...
19:47<tuvwx>gotmynick: ok.. it does work. i did not have a ~/bin dir. - was just experimenting with 'echo $PATH'. once i created ~/bin, bash updated PATH
19:47<debdemon>if this usb drive is 'seen' as /dev/sdf1 and I created a directory called /sdf1 (stupid, I know) and just want to mount it there... with permissions for user, how to do this?
19:47<debdemon>any suggestions for a good method?

20:06<debdemon>the OS (this debian install) is outdated... oh man :(
20:07<gotmynick>Semy, without a default gateway, your route table is incomplete
20:07<gotmynick>Semy, there seems to be a problem with that, are you using /etc/network/interfaces, network manager, or... ?

20:09<gotmynick>Semy, have you upgraded between releases ?
20:09<gotmynick>maybe it's some issue with ipv6 by default
20:09<Semy>yes, I think so

20:11<gotmynick>just in case the file already exists and has some important setting

20:12<gotmynick>or boot the installer in "rescue mode"
20:13<gotmynick>with normal installation, you need to reach the "partitioning" step, so disks, lvm, raid, etc is detected

20:40<gotmynick>see where is the card that has link (eth0, eth1...)
20:40<gotmynick>adapt your interfaces file to it
20:40<gotmynick>auto ethN
20:41<gotmynick>iface ethN inet dhcp
20:41<gotmynick>and the line you use to enable wake on lan if needed

20:42<Semy>ok, I see three lines, one has a name of eth0 and another eth0
20:43-!-nza [~krokodil@] has joined #debian
20:44<Semy>I don't understand how you mean to adapt them?
20:44-!-jack92 [~jack92@] has joined #debian
20:44<gotmynick>i mean... if you are using /etc/network/interfaces, it needs to match the card you want to use
20:45-!-jack92 [~jack92@] has quit []
20:45<gotmynick>if it's eth0, then that, if it is eth1, then that one
20:45<gotmynick>you can empty /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and it will be regenerated at boot
20:45<gotmynick>and it should not have duplicated interfaces

20:46<Semy>wasn't interfaces using eth0 originally, and when I changed it to eth1 it still didn't work
20:47<gotmynick>not sure
20:47<gotmynick>neither i'm sure from where comes your virbr0 interface
20:47<Semy>all I can see in the 70-persistent-net.rules file is two lines that are identical apart from a MAC address and being called eth0 and eth1
20:48<gotmynick>when I configure bridges in debian I do it in the interfaces file
20:48<gotmynick>your udev issues may come from the upgrade
20:49<gotmynick>you can empty such file and reboot, it will be regenerated, and should not have duplicated entries
20:49<gotmynick>one by each interface
20:49-!-tito_ [] has quit [Quit: - Chat comfortably. Anywhere.]
20:49<gotmynick>then, you can use such interface names to configure the interfaces file
20:49<gotmynick>but still i'm in doubt
20:49<gotmynick>your virbr0 interface annoys me
20:50<gotmynick>if it does not come from the interfaces file... what are you using that can configure a network bridge interface ?

20:54<gotmynick>well, I'm loosed, in which step are we now ?
20:54<gotmynick>are we sure what is eth0 and what interface is eth1 ?
20:54<Semy>nope :)
20:55<gotmynick>: > /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
20:55<gotmynick>after that, we should be sure what interface is each one, looking at such file
20:55<gotmynick>after that, we should ifdown every interface but "lo"
20:56<gotmynick>we should be sure that the /etc/network/interfaces matchs the desired interface for dhcp
20:56<gotmynick>and ifup it
20:56<gotmynick>if after reboot whe still have a "virbr0" interface, I'm loose... you need to research from where it comes
20:57<gotmynick>maybe something like grep -r libvir0 /* or a I don't know howto localize from where it comes
20:57<gotmynick>errr libvir0 no, virbr0
20:59<gotmynick>or something like: lsof | grep virbr0
20:59<gotmynick>to see which process is using it
21:02<Semy>wait, I just restarted and pinging is working
21:02<gotmynick>it was a udev upgrade related problem then
21:02<Semy>so is ssh
21:02<gotmynick>reseting the file, seems to returned everything to original state
21:03<gotmynick>I'm happy it worked, because I was getting crazy
21:03<Semy>haha, me too
21:06<Semy>thank you very much for your help :)
21:07<gotmynick>no problem
