03:24<loicd>Hi, how can I create a wheezy usb bootable image ? I see kernel / initrd / boot image here but no standalone image.
03:28<Osiris_X>loicd: these days you can just cat one of the cd images to the usb stick
03:29<loicd>Osiris_X: oh, that's why I did not find it :-D
03:29<loicd>thanks !
03:29-!-fau [] has joined #debian
03:29<Osiris_X>loicd: obviously if you do it that way, you can't add files to it, but if you just create another FAT partition on the usb stick, you can add them there
03:29<Osiris_X>and the installer will see them
03:29<Osiris_X>thinks like firmware for wireless cards etc
03:29-!-fau [] has left #debian []
03:30<loicd>Osiris_X: my goal is to have a bootable image for an OpenStack cluster. There won't be a need for additional firmware :-)
03:30-!-kodak [] has joined #debian
03:30<Osiris_X>loicd: what I have said applies to the debian installer cd images
03:30<loicd>helpguess: apt-get install apache2
03:31-!-sakal [~sakal@] has joined #debian
03:31<loicd>Osiris_X: for instance, right ?
03:32-!-kriller [] has joined #debian
03:32<Osiris_X>loicd: yes but I have only personally tried it with the 180mb net install cd image
03:33-!-jeep [~jeep@] has joined #debian
03:33*loicd trying right now
03:34<helpguess>anyone can help me install apache2
03:34-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
03:35<kodak>hey all
03:35<kodak>a quick question, alsa or pulseaudio?
03:36<jeep>helpguess: apt-get install apache2
03:36<Osiris_X>kodak: are you running gnome?
03:36-!-freealan [] has quit []
03:37<Osiris_X>kodak: ok from my experience the latest versions of pulseaudio typically simplify audio usage in graphical user interfaces
03:38<ectospasm>helpguess: aptitude install apache2 doesn't work for you?
03:38<kodak>ah, cool, ill go that route then
03:38<Osiris_X>kodak: for example I can output to my bluetooth headphones with minimal config and switch between multiple incoming sources
03:38<Osiris_X>kodak: inc. individually control audio from different apps
03:38-!-Eremiell [] has joined #debian
03:39<Osiris_X>kodak: just make sure you have a recent version, because it was a bit of a mare in the past
03:39<kodak>perfect, i dont have multiple inputs, but i have a couple of outputs and would like to manage sound levels of apps
03:39<kodak>this is a fresh debian install, so im downloading now
03:39<jeep>kodak: i dont do much with sound however pulseadio only setting ive had to manually adjust is the volume so it must be doing pretty good
03:39-!-flightplan [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:39<Osiris_X>kodak: but note alsa will be used in the background anyway
03:39<kodak>ah, ok
03:40<Osiris_X>kodak: as it is what interfaces to your H/W through your kernel
03:40<loicd>Osiris_X: it fails to mount the CDROM (which makes sense because there is none ;-) It's a problem you don't have with netinst, obviously.
03:40-!-ole [] has joined #debian
03:40<Osiris_X>loicd: how did you push the cd image to the usb stick?
03:41<kodak>oh, hardware, not H/W, not M/W
03:41<loicd>Osiris_X: I uploaded it to OpenStack with glance add is_public=yes container_format=bare disk_format=raw name=debian7 < debian-wheezy-DI-b2-amd64-CD-1.iso
03:42<loicd>and then booted with nova boot --image 5dde83be-f187-41b7-a0d6-b404cb501a3e --flavor 6 --key_name loic --availability_zone=bm0001 debian2 --poll
03:42<loicd>where 5dde83be-f187-41b7-a0d6-b404cb501a3e is the unique id of the .iso in glance

03:43<jeep>loicd: why cant you use normal usb stick like everyone else!
03:44<loicd>jeep: how do I do this with an OpenStack cluster ?
03:45<jeep>loicd: sorry never used it
03:45<Osiris_X>loicd: ok, no idea about all of the OpenStack cluster stuff - I just cat <image>.iso >/dev/<usb device>
03:45-!-trifolio6 [] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
03:46-!-vladuke [~vladuke@] has joined #debian
03:47<jeep>loicd: one possibility may be to use unetbootin to create a usb stick .. and then create your own .iso to boot from that usb stick .. however just a guess
03:48<project2501a>oh god. not unetbootin
03:48<Osiris_X>lmfao @ project2501a
03:48<loicd>Osiris_X: that's basically what glance add does. I'll try with netinst now.
03:48-!-henry_ [~henry@] has left #debian []
03:48<project2501a>why can't ubuntu just go to #ubuntu
03:48<project2501a>use unetbootin to create a usb stick and then make iso to boot from usb stick?!
03:49<kodak>yay, pulse is easy once you realize to actually turn the speakers on(the hardware)...
03:49<project2501a>yo, dawn, i heard you like an OS within your OS...

03:49<project2501a>Osiris_X: debian handbook, chapter 7
03:49<project2501a>go read
03:49<loicd>jeep: what people do is usually along these lines : boot with kvm and a CD, install, then upload the corresponding disk to openstack. But I find it inconvenient.
03:49<Osiris_X>project2501a: why? what's it about?
03:49-!-loicd [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
03:50<project2501a>it's about customizing your own debian distro
03:50-!-loicd [] has joined #debian
03:50<kodak>helpguess, leave me alone, i dont know how to install apache, and you are spamming me, please leave me alone
03:50<project2501a>erh, customizing your installation, even.
03:50<dpkg>extra, extra, read all about it, ban is a way of getting rid of annoying pests, especially trolls
03:50<kodak>ban helpguess
03:50<kodak>!ban helpguess
03:50<helpguess>!ban kodak
03:51<Osiris_X>he's spamming a lot of people I think
03:51<jeep>helpguess: read a tutorial on it .. if you get stuck then come ask an intelligent question about what your stuck on
03:52<project2501a>s/intelligent/well formed question/
03:53<jeep>helpguess: there are many helpful people here .. however annoying people will get you ignored/banned rather fast
03:56<Osiris_X>project2501a: debian handbook chapter 7 seems to be on "problem solving" - what url are you referring to?
03:57<project2501a>Osiris_X: sorry, forgot the actual chapter, my mistake. please look around,, it's there
03:58<jeep>Osiris_X: what are you working on ?
03:59-!-NIN [] has joined #debian
04:00<Osiris_X>jeep: I assume project2501a is pointing this out to me in relation to a much earlier conversation where I was customising a debian installation and wondering whether to do encryption on top of LVM or vice versa

04:00<project2501a>Osiris_X: no.
04:01<project2501a>i am pointing to the debian handbook on the account of someone telling that they have to use unetbootin to make a usb boot disk, to make an iso to customize

04:17<dpkg>Knoppix is _not_ Debian. Seek Knoppix help in freenode's #knoppix. Knoppix is a live CD distribution which is <based on Debian>, useful as a rescue CD, to test hardware, and for situations where you have access to a computer but it isn't Debian. unofficial: <Debian-live> is the Debian equivalent for publishing live systems.
04:18<Guest7227>was that directed toward me. my bad. so find knoppix room?
04:18<ompaul>Guest7227: I'm pretty sure there is no password, sudo -i or su - should get you to root on the cd

04:36<ompaul>kodak: are you using sid?

04:36<kodak>i dont know what that is
04:37<ompaul>,versions keepass2
04:37<judd>Package: keepass2 on i386 -- sid: 2.19+dfsg-1; wheezy: 2.19+dfsg-1
04:37<devil>at least its in sid
04:37<ompaul>kodak: you don't mix stable and sid unless you want ...
04:37<dpkg>When you get random packages from random repositories, mix multiple releases of Debian, or mix Debian and derived distributions, you have a mess. There's no way anyone can support this "distribution of Frankenstein" and #debian certainly doesn't want to even try. See if you can convince #linux to help.

04:38<ectospasm>keepass2 is fugly
04:38<kodak>devil, the problem i have is on my windows install i use keepass2, and like you might know, keepass2 databases can not be opened in keepass1
04:38<ectospasm>...since it uses mono/.NET
04:38<ompaul>kodak: no laughing matter - if you break it in a stupid way we really may not be interested in helping you unbreak it - cost us hours
04:38<kodak>i understand ompaul
04:38<devil>kodak: so keepassx == keepass1?

09:04<Tarential>hi folks :) I have a squeeze server on which I'm trying to update apache to the latest version (2.2.16 is currently installed), but it claims this *is* the latest version (according to the debian site there are newer packages available)
09:04<Tarential>I've done an apt-get upgrade and I have the squeeze/updates in my sources.list
09:05<Tarential>is there something I'm missing on how to make it grab the latest version of apache?
09:05<themill>Tarential: precisely which version do you want? Can you pastebin the output of "apt-cache policy apache2 apache2.2-common"
09:06-!-ikky [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]

09:07-!-fayaz [~quassel@] has joined #debian
09:07<themill>Tarential: you do have the most recent packages of apache for squeeze
09:07<Tarential>someone used a vulnerability in 2.2.16 to crash my server
09:07<themill>!security backports
09:07<dpkg>Debian incorporates security fixes into the version currently in <stable>. This is non-trivial so it may take a couple days. Backporting security fixes means that you can update the package without problems like changed behaviour that would come with updating to a new version of the software. The upstream version number doesn't change in the Debian package when this is done; check the changelog or the <tracker of doom>.
09:08<themill>Tarential: a specific CVE would be handy

09:11<Tarential>well I'd like to be able to say more on that, if I knew :) all I can say is they suggested I upgrade to 2.2.19 -- but now that I check the vulnerabilities they seem to apply to .19 as well
09:11<Tarential>so, instead might I ask, is 2.2.16 supposed to be the latest in squeeze right now?

09:12<sml>hi all. i upgraded qemu-kvm as per recent security announcement. is there a way to use update without a reboot?
09:12<themill>Tarential: 2.2.16-6+squeeze7 is the current version in squeeze(-updates). There's actually a +squeeze8 version in squeeze-proposed-updates but I'm not sure what that is there to fix.
09:12<Apollo>rajesh_: no, you cant
09:13<sml>rajesh_: you can always curl or wget it first
09:13<themill>Tarential: is the changelog for +squeeze8. This is unlikely to be the issue that you're looking for a solution.

09:14-!-purpose [] has quit []
09:14<themill>Tarential: I'd be very suspicious about advice that just says "oh you just need to update to the latest upstream release to fix things"
09:14<Apollo>you *need* to download something either way
09:14<Apollo>if you don't download it, it's not on your machine => can't install it
09:14<Tarential>yeah, well the person doing the testing isn't really knowledgable himself, he jsut has a nice expensive tool that does it
09:14<rajesh_>ok, wget downloads anything in /home folder
09:14<sml>Apollo: i guess he/she means install it from memorry rather than file
09:14<Tarential>so I'm wary of his advice indeed
09:15<Tarential>but the fact remains that he did crash my server, or at least, there were a bunch of apache processes running but no response from the server on port 80
09:15<rajesh_>can I do it in /tmp folder so that I dont have to manually delete the packages
09:15<Apollo>rajesh_: wget downloads a file whereever you want it to
09:15<themill>Tarential: expensive tools often just look at version numbers and don't notice that bugs can be fixed without changing the version number
09:15<Tarential>as soon as I apachectl2 stop/start
09:15<Tarential>it worked
09:15<rajesh_>Apollo, please write syntax for wget to install in temp directory
09:15<rajesh_>i mean
09:15<rajesh_>to download
09:16<Tarential>oh well, I guess I shouldn't worry about it too much -- thanks for all your help :)
09:16<themill>rajesh_: I'm sure you can do that yourself, if you know that it's needed.
09:16<sml>so .. anyone here run qemu-kvm? is it possible to upgrade the package without affecting running quests, and failing that at least without having to reboot? virt-manager stopped working from a remote host when I did /etc/init.d/libvirtd-bin restart
09:16<themill>Tarential: yeah, if you an come up with a CVE number, then check it -- /msg dpkg tracker of doom
09:16<rajesh_>ok, thanks themill
09:17<themill>Tarential: a decent security auditing tool/report should tell you the CVE numbers.
09:17<Tarential>I'll ask about that :) have a good day

09:55<sml>and in answer to my own question from earlier i think i can just unload the kernel module for qemu and reload the new one, and that will save me a reboot. of course i have to shut down the running guests first as they're using that module.
09:56<tale>sml: Have you tried setting it the way you want in Screensaver settings?
09:57<sml>tale: i'll go take a look in the settings. it just seems odd that i've already told it what i want (by raising the brightness again and again) yet it keeps seeming to be more interest in using it's own judgement

10:10<themill>for whatever value of "default" you want

10:11<sml>babilen: thanks.
10:12<sml>themill: obviously with Debian you it will remain as desktop environment agnostic as possible so yes the choice for default means very little.
10:13<babilen>sml: Or rather: The commit was reverted for the 3.12 release of tasksel -- I am not sure what the actual plans are, but this *only* changes the desktop that will be installed by default. If you were to read the debian-devel mailing list you would realise that the whole issue is still being discussed.

11:51<kodak>im running update flash... now
11:51<chikidu>right now I am using the live version, I am kind of new using linux, can I enter my root files using the live version?
11:51<babilen>kodak: Ok, get rid of those configuration. Please also run "aptitude purge ~c", make sure that you don't have a /etc/X11/xorg.conf, upgrade flash to the latest version, reboot and retry.

11:53<babilen>chikidu: You should still have a /var/log/Xorg.0.log -- So you don't have Debian installed and just boot from a Live CD? How exactly did you upgrade that cd ? (in a way that survives reboots)
11:53<kodak>babilen, there is a xorg.conf.d, is that a problem?
11:54<babilen>kodak: No, you should have a /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ with a 20-nvidia.conf in there.
11:54<chikidu>I think it is a kernel panic, the booting process crashes when is gonna load gdm3, just before it happens it says something about gdm3
11:54<chikidu>I have installed debian in my laptop
11:55<chikidu>but i can just boot in rescue mode
11:55<kodak>right babilen, according to apt-get flash is at its latest, so i should reboot now(the whole machine, not just X?)
11:55<chikidu>so I used a pendrive to boot in live mode so I can find help
11:56<babilen>chikidu: Ah, so: You installed Debian and it worked fine until you upgraded some packages? Ever since you've done that you cannot boot anymore. (or rather you can only boot into rescue mode)
11:56<chikidu>yeah, that's right
11:56<kodak>brb - rebooting

12:01<babilen>chikidu: Official Debian repositories? You might want to chroot into your system (as detailed in "/msg dpkg fixmbr") and run "apt-get dist-upgrade" in there. It would also be of interest to see your /var/log/Xorg.0.log to actually figure out what the error is.
12:01<babilen>chikidu: I still suspect that you don't get a kernel panic, but that it is rather a problem with your Xorg.
12:02<babilen>kodak: Hmm, that is unfortunate. Is it reproducible with other browsers as well?
12:02<kodak>i googled around, its a problem between the nvidia and flash, all you need to do is disable hardware acceleration on flash videos
12:03<kodak>i did that and it worked, people are white again! (omg racist)

12:27<kodak>all works
12:28<babilen>kodak: The commands aren't really that bad. One part is just trying to figure out which architecture you are using. (uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,') and the other creates a complete configuration file for nvidia
12:29<babilen>I could have just as well asked you "Which architecture do you use?" and said: "Install linux-image-2.6-amd64 linux-headers-amd64" ;)
12:29<TCW>babilen, what command was that?
12:29<kodak>i got a headache just trying to type them, i gave up and copy/pasted like a lazy bastard

13:26<TCW>siddy, the size of the partitions one uses, just depends on one thing: The User.
13:26<TCW>I guess you are the user, so it boils down to "only time will tell"
13:26<siddy>is 38gb too small for main partition?
13:27<TCW>siddy, you didn'r get my point

13:31<siddy>if one partition is a primary and one is a logical, it's ok, right?

13:45<TCW>all different sorts of data goes to different locations by default. For instance databases (sql and stuff), webserver-data, packages that apt downloads to install, all that goes to /var. Configuration-files to /etc, if you download something with iceweasel or any other browser, it defaults to store the stuff on /home, Most mediaplayers like amarok or rhythmbox expect the musik library in /home too per default. But the funny thing is, first, no one knows how much
13:45<TCW>space any user will need in the long run, how he manages his files and what kind of system he uses AND defaults can be changed. SO even IF you have an issue with a full /home, you could move the stuff out there and put it in e.g. /srv and configure the mediaplayers to expect the stuff there, or work with symbolic links...

14:47<TCW>joseph-soares, de- and encrypting uses ressources, mostly CPU-power, or on specialised hardware, there are chips to do the heavy-lifting in encryption, some mainboards / chipsets support hardware-AES, that helps keeping the CPU load when handling encrypted devices to a minimum. But today with multicore CPUs, you may not even notice that you run on an encrypted drive.

18:06<themill>safinaskar: there isn't a mirror network for security.d.o like that.
18:07<safinaskar>themill: why?
18:07-!-shedammit [] has joined #debian
18:07<themill>there's not much content there to make mirroring important and you don't have to worry about a broken mirror not being updated hence you missing out on security updates
18:08<TCW>thebut sdo has a backup-mirror now?
18:08<TCW>themill, even
18:08<themill>there are several machines in dns for security.d.o

21:53<Agent_bob>fonts are so small i can't read anything in the console/tty
21:53<TCW>Agent_bob, what gfx chipset?
21:53<dpkg>Framebuffer is a region of memory into which "frames" of graphical data are drawn. X is a framebuffer system, as is berlin. If you're looking for the framebuffer console, ask me about <fbcon>, or ask about <blacklist> to negate it. To disable framebuffer use at Debian installation time, supply the "fb=false" (d-i) or "video=vga16:off" (kernel) boot options. See also <uvesafb>.
21:53<abrotman>oh wait. in grub2, i think it's gfxmode=
21:54<Agent_bob>abrotman ty, i'll try that.

21:57<abrotman>you mean the buffers?
21:58<Seth>However, I think that VMWare-server might be seeing that usages as real usage and disk swapping, severly degrading VM performance.

22:10<Seth>abrotman: I'm not entirely sure..I have 4GB RAM and 2 CPU cores allocated to vm, which is plenty enough, and still plenty left over for host. Yet performance is dismal, which coupled with low memory usage from vmware I assuming means it's swapping.
22:11<abrotman>Seth: how are the drives setup?
22:11<abrotman>Seth: run 'vmstat 3' while you notice poor performance .. see if you're swapping, ignore the first few returns

22:13<Seth>Sorry...should pastebin that...
22:13<abrotman>you can just watch it yourself and tell us? :)
22:13<Seth>It would seem to me to not be swapping...
22:14<Seth>But I wish it was because now I have no idea why performance is awful slow.
