04:40<EmleyMoor>All my attempts to improve my bootstick to include a wheezy installer seem to have failed. If I use the hd-media initrd.gz and vmlinuz, it seems to hang when mounting the existing hard disk partitions looking for a CD image. If I boot the iso as per the way I do grml, it says it can't install from the CD in the drive. Any clues as to what is wrong?

05:07<dpkg>Linux Mint is not Debian and is not supported in #debian. Please use their forums at or join #linuxmint-help on for support. Linux Mint is variously based on <Ubuntu> with a "Linux Mint Debian Edition" (LMDE) also available, based on <testing>. See also <based on debian>, <mintppc>.

05:24<project2501b>hmmmm. the behavior of apt has to be refined a bit...
05:24<project2501b>apt-get, even
05:25<project2501b>i should be ble to specify packages to exclude in the command line
05:25<PaulePanter>project2501b: You can put packages on hold which will be excluded then.
05:25<project2501b>really? how, please?
05:26<project2501b>can i get a string to rtfm?
05:26<project2501b>search string, even
05:27-!-jibel [~j-lalleme@] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
05:27<PaulePanter>project2501b: apt-get --help ?
05:27-!-byonk_ [] has joined #debian
05:27<PaulePanter>man apt-get
05:27-!-nkukard [~nkukard@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:27<project2501b>PaulePanter: my apologies! :D i just did apt-get --help and did not bring the option up. i apologize for the stupid question
05:27<PaulePanter>project2501b: I only know Aptitude. `sudo aptitude hold brasero` for example.
05:28<themill>project2501b: even better with aptitude, you just add ":" after the package name to have apt do nothing to it that session
05:28*project2501b waves to themill
05:28<project2501b>why can't i do that with apt?
05:28*themill moos appreciatively
05:28<project2501b>erh, with apt-get
05:28<PaulePanter>project2501b: Yes, I am sorry. `apt-get` does not support it. You have to use `dpkg` directly if you do not want to use Aptitude.
05:29<project2501b>also, why can't i pass a file with parameters to apt-get for a package so it can be configured using that package?
05:29<themill>project2501b: with apt-get you can specify the opposite of what apt wants to do -- so if it wants to install something you don't want, add - to remove the package on the same command line
05:29<project2501b>granted, that is encroaching Puppet territory
05:29<themill>preseeding into debconf already does the configuring for you
05:30<project2501b>yeah, but you cannot specify, e.g. the NIS domain for NIS in the pre seeded file, can you?
05:32-!-chgtg [~chg@] has joined #debian
05:33-!-byonk [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:33<themill>project2501b: the nis package gets "nis/domain" from debconf, so I'd say that's a "yes".
05:34<project2501b>darts. wrong example :P

05:36<themill>sounds like you want a puppet-mdns client that does off and does upnp to invite a puppet-master in.. or something similarly scary.

06:43-!-AzaToth [] has joined #debian
06:43<siddy>when I do this in kde with dolphin... or cli... the 'visual' disappears
06:44<EmleyMoor>Does "mount" (the CLI command) list the filesystem as mounted?
06:44<siddy>I unmounted in the command line... and there is no output... so, it seemed to work

06:46<EmleyMoor>mount | grep label may help...

06:50<siddy>it usually gets assigned sddX
06:50<EmleyMoor>What kind of filesystems are they?
06:50<siddy>ext3 formatted
06:50<siddy>just data
06:50<EmleyMoor>siddy: Use e2label... if your system mounts them as /media/something, the something will be the label

06:54<grammoboy>if I use it on a smartphone, and it get stolen

10:18<loizbek>Hi, I'm having a hard time configuring my network interfaces on my debian powered server, and I'm wondering if anyone could help.
10:19-!-floe [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:19<jagerman>What's the trouble?
10:19<loizbek>It connects perfectly well on start-up runs well, but whenever the ethernet connection goes down it never goes back up on its own
10:19<loizbek>I have to get to the computer
10:20<loizbek>click on the connection to start-it again

10:21<loizbek>during the summer there was a bug, the network appeared down, even though it was actually connected, and it ran like that for a month without disconnecting, to my knowledge
10:21<abrotman>is it configured in your interfaces file ?

10:38-!-shanttu [] has joined #debian
10:38<loizbek>well, I don't know, I'd believe it is never more than a couple minutes
10:38<loizbek>as sometimes I watch a movie from my server at home
10:39<loizbek>it freezes
10:39-!-adesiride [] has quit []
10:39<loizbek>it takes me one minute to figure out that the freeze is serious
10:39<ompaul>loizbek: check your router - if it says 1000 seconds you have to wait 999 seconds if the router dies after the 1st second
10:39<ompaul>loizbek: inside your router stick in your own local hub
10:40<ompaul>generally routers have a 100Meg link and your own sorry not hub but switch can be 1gig in size
10:40<loizbek>and when I get there all I need to do is click on the eth0 connection for the server to be back online
10:40<ompaul>that should help with the kind of issue you are describing
10:40<ompaul>the server should have a static IP
10:40<ompaul>it should not get it's address over dhcp that's silly
10:41<loizbek>it does have a static IP on my LAN
10:42<loizbek>but you mean it gets its local IP address through DHCP, while it could be in a configuration file somewhere?
10:42-!-flower [] has joined #debian
10:43<loizbek>ompaul: what concerns me is that some daemon visibly crashed over the summer, since the icon displayed the server as deconnected, while it actually was not
10:43<ompaul>your /etc/network/interfaces connection on the server should look like this dns-seach foo.lan is missing
10:43<loizbek>and the problem was neutralized for over a month
10:44-!-grandie [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:44<loizbek>it was always up (to my knowledge) and never needed manual connection
10:44<loizbek>and of course the problem resurfaced when I restarted the computer
10:44<ompaul>loizbek: hang on - you started off with a complaint about your client and it losing an address - now you are talking about a server fault
10:45-!-adesiride [] has joined #debian
10:45<ompaul>loizbek: either eliminate one or other and check out your router from the problem by giving both boxes a seperate static ip you will then be able to check what's dying on your

10:47-!-ao2 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:47<loizbek>not as a complain of a bug
10:47<loizbek>yep I'm using your paste as a model for a configuration file
10:48<ompaul>loizbek: change both server and client to static ip - that rules out your home router, then stick a 1gig switch inside the router, that prevents the router from killing the conversation
10:48-!-zer0pouet [] has joined #debian
10:48<ompaul>loizbek: if you still have problems then you can point perhaps at wires or something the router is doing
10:49<ompaul>loizbek: cheap solution to a potential difficult problem
10:49<loizbek>I'll try that
10:49<ompaul>at least after that you can try to find out what it is that has happened
10:49<loizbek>what I meant was that the problem is likely server based
10:49<loizbek>as when some daemon on it crashed, it worked perfectly well... :-S
10:50<loizbek>so I doubt the wires are concerned by the issue
10:50-!-adesiride [] has quit [Quit: Sto andando via]
10:50<loizbek>and while I was using ubuntu I did not have the issue either
10:50<loizbek>it started when I replaced it with debian

10:51<loizbek>yeah I know
10:51-!-om00 [] has joined #debian
10:51<loizbek>the only indication something had happened was that the network icon

10:51-!-sakal [~sakal@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]

10:52<loizbek>I'm no sys admin, sorry

10:52<loizbek>but you're right, Ishould work on some new reflexes

10:53<ompaul>where you at least will be comfortable in one part of the conversation while you learn the autre vocabulare

10:54<loizbek>I pinged (well not through ping but by accessing data from elsewhere so it worked)
10:54<loizbek>I just did not check "route"
10:55<loizbek>but hey you gave me food for thought
10:55<ompaul>so that is how you work out if it is working or not, from the client, ssh -C user@server see if you can get in
10:55<loizbek>I'm currently connected to the server through ssh
10:55<loizbek>and was so all over the summer
10:55<loizbek>while it appeared disconnected on the gui
10:56<loizbek>I know when it is connected and disconnected
10:56<loizbek>what I was saying is that the GUI thought it was disconnected, while it was not
10:56-!-fibolethrophag [] has joined #debian

10:57<loizbek>hence my thinking that it is not due to wires or router

10:58<loizbek>but before I bother you more, I'll try to make a working configuration file that looks like yours
10:58<loizbek>and will need a couple weeks to make sure the problem is still present before I bother you again
10:58<ompaul>loizbek: be aware that file has separate on lan dhcp servers gateways your values will be different
10:58<loizbek>yeah sure
10:59<loizbek>I know it'll take me a bit of time to figure out what the values should be, but I'll eventually find out ;-)
10:59<ompaul>loizbek: the way I suggest your network looks is ----|dsl router|---| 5 port 1 gig switch (about 60 euros or so) |---- computers

11:42<SynrG>by the way, by "don't know" i meant "i don't know if kde also co-opts control of the touchpad toggle setting or not.
11:43<SynrG>as for configuration of synaptics settings via /etc, that may or may not work depending on whether your desktop overrides those settings
11:43<houms>i did not touch it . thanks for mentioning it though
11:44<SynrG>my recollection of this is hazy, but when working with the debian-eeepc project, i believe as we were approaching the release of squeeze, we found that we couldn't make a custom touchpad toggle that worked ...
11:44<SynrG>because gnome insisted on setting it back
11:44<houms>i found the kde module. it puts a nice little option in input devices which lets me set it
11:44<SynrG>in that case, it's better to just not have a handler and let gnome handle the key
11:44-!-hieroph4nt [~azrael@] has joined #debian

11:49<houms>i was not really sure why the synclient command made it work
11:49<SynrG>ah, never mind. touchpad toggle and tap to click are separate issues.
11:49<SynrG>probably because kde remembers and enforces its own user preference
11:50<SynrG>so even if system-wide you set it, kde (at login time) will switch it back
11:50<houms>i was following another thread where they suggested typing that in to see if you get an error rather i got return to shell with a working touchpad

11:59<babilen>om: yeah, and Evolution is just plain stupid. IIRC you can toggle a "Work Online/Offline" switch somewhere, but you can also just use NetworkManager if you prefer that. For that to work you shouldn't configure interfaces in /e/n/i though

12:04<houms>if you have gui, most likely you have a desktop environment, expecially since you are using evolution mail client
12:04<om>babilen, is it because of the behavior of "purge", opposed to "remove"?
12:04<houms>i would suggest keeping network-manager and commenting out the interfaces file
12:04<om>totally right houms
12:04<houms>well i would square away your network management issue first
12:04<om>ok, i'll pastebin my file ok? it's very short
12:04<houms>i can try and help once you clear thatup
12:05<om>Ok. Are you referring to the "No wired connections available" message? (while I'm currently on the internet instead....)
12:05<babilen>om: The removal is an unfortunate side-effect of a brain-dead decision (IMHO) of the GNOME maintainer's in Debian coupled with the way the Desktop Environment is installed during the installation. I can explain that in detail, but I wouldn't want to if you don't actually want to remove NM or another GNOME related package.

12:06-!-tylerstrayhan- [] has joined #debian
12:06<houms>well it is a network management framework that does not refer to interfaces file. it uses its own framwork to dtermine connection info
12:06<babilen>om: To make it easier for now: Just comment/remove the entries in /e/n/i and restart network-manager
12:06<babilen>houms: Yeah

12:07<RDMDD>Hi I'm installing debian wheezy on my netbook. Should I choose the linux-image-3.2.0-3-amd64 or the linux-image-amd64 ???
12:07<babilen>RDMDD: I would choose the latter.
12:07<babilen>!tell RDMDD about metapackage
12:07<RDMDD>what's the difference
12:08-!-kvant [] has joined #debian
12:08<babilen>RDMDD: The linux-image-amd64 package is a metapackage that *depends* on the newest available kernel version. It actually depends on linux-image-3.2.0-3-amd64 right now.
12:08<houms>linux-image-amd64 is a meta-package no?
12:08-!-kvant is now known as Guest8775
12:08<houms>beat me to it
12:08<RDMDD>Aha ok
12:09<RDMDD>So it's for ease of use when newer kernels arrive?
12:09<babilen>RDMDD: The decision becomes important when you upgrade to a new version of Debian and would have to install a new kernel. If you have linux-image-3.2.0-3-amd64 installed *exactly that* kernel would stay installed, but linux-image-amd64 would depend on a newer one (and therefore install it/pull it in)
12:09-!-Guest8775 [] has quit []
12:09<babilen>,depends linux-image-amd64 --release wheezy --arch amd64
12:09<judd>Package linux-image-amd64 in wheezy/amd64 -- depends: linux-image-3.2.0-3-amd64.
12:09<babilen>RDMDD: ^^^^
12:09<om>Oh. My. Gosh. It seemed it worked. :):):):)
12:09<babilen>om: Hehe :)
12:10<RDMDD>tnx for the info
12:10<om>babilen, houms: it's soooo good, that feeling when some ugly problem gets resolved....... ahhhhh..........
12:10<babilen>RDMDD: You are welcome -- i would just install the metapackage as it ensures that you always have the newest (standard) kernel installed
12:10<houms>glad you got it resolved.

15:02<TCW>viz, then debian may not be the distro for you? As... bleeding edge is one thing, but it has some trade-backs one should be aware of. And there is of course the thing about "homegrown" distro bugs (packaging issues, transitions, dependency issues) which come in addition to the bugs found in the software itself.
15:03<devil>and debian is never really bleeding edge, not even in sid
15:03<devil>sid is actualy pretty tame

16:16<RDMDD>Another question: how good of an indicator is glxgears to see if your vga card is running fine? I have a Mobility Radeon HD4220. On a vanilla install of debian wheezy, glxgears renders about 400fps with the default radeon driver. I downgraded my xorg to 1.11 as described here because fglrx doesn't seem to work with xorg 1.12. Next I
16:16<RDMDD>installed the driver from ATI catalyst 12.6 and rebooted. Now the glxgears render at 1700fps. Does this really matter? Because although everything works now, my xorg log is full of errors and aptitude keeps telling me to remove packages as they probably depended on xorg 1.12.
16:16<dpkg>from memory, glxgears is an OpenGL demo, or <bogomips> for graphics cards. It is not a benchmark. In fact, in recent versions you must pass it the -iacknowledgethatthistoolisnotabenchmark option in order to report FPS information. Provided by the mesa-utils package.
16:16-!-Glycan [] has joined #debian
16:18<RDMDD>So I really shouldn't fiddle around with it and use the open source radeon driver?

17:00<TCW>chronofusion1980, but a small hint for the way... if all fails start the second handbrake as another user. But... handbrake has batch support AND tries to use as many cores / cpus to speed things up, there is relly no real benefit in running multiple handbrake processes at the same time.

20:39<z_marco>grepper: it's hard to say how you have your power management configured. I wouldn't go drastic by installing another window manager. Of course, if you want too that's another matter.
20:40<grepper>z_marco: I have it installed already, just be a matter of logging into it to test. It would at least tell me if it is xfce4 or something more basic
20:41<z_marco>grepper: that sounds like a plan. Give it a try.

20:46<z_marco>siddy: /home makes part of your system. I wouldn't remove it. The homedirs can of course be moved elsewhere.
20:46<siddy>or I could try as root in terminal?
20:47<siddy>yes, I know, but I want to do a new install on the small (183 gb) partition
20:47<z_marco>siddy: but if you are going to move the homedirs, make sure that the rest of the configs have also changed accordingly.
20:47<siddy>I just want a copy of what is there so I have to 'copy' it someplace
20:48<siddy>some way I can clone a partition?

20:54<siddy>so I said I'd copy the contents to another place... and the 3 tb HDD has lots of room

20:57-!-DanishRolls [] has quit [Quit: Choosy programmers choose]
20:57<z_marco>siddy: making a backup, either to another server (i.e. with rsync or nfs share), or to an external device. Yes, you can try to another partition, bring the partition back with the new install, but if you format, then all the data is lost.
20:57<siddy>it's a very old install... out of disk space but data is there and various packages were installed... but, owner wants to start fresh
20:58<siddy>no, I am not formatting anything but I don't see how I can do a new, fresh install... when the partition is almost full...
20:58<z_marco>siddy: I would first start with listing all the packages installed on the server. I would backup the configurations and necessary data. Hence, a backup is necessary.
20:59<siddy>how to do the backup then?
21:00<siddy>it would be ideal to clone exactly what is there on another drive or smth like that...then I can say I left everything intact but it's someplace else
21:00<siddy>as long as it doesn't wipe anything out on the drive it's going to
21:00<RDMDD>What do you want to backup anyway? If it's data, then why can't you just copy it to another disk, like z_marco said?

21:15<siddy>I agree with RMDD, you should see if Windows will boot if you select it and debian
21:16<siddy>galaxy: so you think crunchbang should be on sda3?
21:16<galaxy>yes it is on there
21:16<galaxy>i know it is. lol
21:16<siddy>I would check gparted and see if it's there
21:16<galaxy>How do I check gparted?
21:16<siddy>do you use gnome with debian?
21:17<siddy>then there should be an icon called partition manager or whatever it is in gnome
21:17<galaxy>okay, please excuse me for 5 minutes.
21:17<RDMDD>Why use gparted?
21:17<RDMDD>Why don't you try to mount it?

21:18<siddy>sorry :)
21:18<siddy>if my advice is bad, sorry :)
21:18<siddy>maybe I should shut up lol
21:19<RDMDD>a partition manager won't show the contents of that partition, just shows its filesystem etc.

21:22<galaxy>hi sorry im back.
21:22<galaxy>Guys, I can access a few of my crunch bang folders in the filesystem on debian ''20gb''
21:23<RDMDD>Did you mount the drive?
21:23<galaxy>yes on ''/''
21:24<galaxy>i had this same problem when installing crunch bang, but my friend told me a terminal code that added it to the bootloader again
21:24<RDMDD>is there a kernel in /boot/
21:25<RDMDD>on that sda3 I mean
21:25<galaxy>how do i check if there is a kernal? sorry i am a total n00b at linux.
21:26<z_marco>siddy: In the past, when I was only administering some 40 or 50 servers, we did /volumes/vg00/homes for users and place a symlink in /home. Then when it started to be administering over 600 servers, it was becoming a pain. Some servers had /volumes/vg00/home and other servers we inherited had /home. So if you do a "for i" loop, we had to seperate the list of servers. A pain.
21:26<RDMDD>how did you gain access to that sda3? tell me what you typed
21:27-!-tylerstrayhan [] has joined #debian
21:27<siddy>z_marco: so, you advise against a separate home? :)

21:27<siddy>I'm just wondering if you want to preserve the home directory, then what?

21:30<z_marco>siddy: It doesn't really matter how you do it. It's more important that all the SysAdmins do the same. But it takes one server or several servers that will be inherited with /home, and it puts your plans down the tube. Keep things lean.
21:30<galaxy>RDMDD: how do i try to access the sda3 partion?
21:30<z_marco>siddy: /home is perfectly fine.

21:32<galaxy>i do believe 20gb is my sda3
21:32<galaxy>because when i told my friend i was partioning sda3 he was like you only gave your crunch bang 20gb lul?
21:33<RDMDD>Is there anything important in there?
21:33<z_marco>siddy: that's my point.. If you have MANY servers, you want all the servers to be similar. Same partitions, same GIDS for the different departments etc. Keep things lean.
21:33<galaxy>my password folder is not in my 20gb filesystem on debian.
21:33<galaxy>Not sure why. not everything is there

22:27<RDMDD>Maybe someone else here is willing to.

22:28<RDMDD>You can't unmount that
22:28<galaxy>i also put '/' on crunch bang
22:29<abrotman>it's quite possible the grub in debian won't be able to find the crunchbang for whatever reason .. ext4 could be a possible reason
22:29<RDMDD>the / is where your filesystem is. Every linux has a / . As long as they're not located on the same partition, there's no problem.
22:30<galaxy>hold on
22:30<galaxy>im going to restart for a sec

22:33<RDMDD>Well if abrotman says it has nothing to do with the boot flag, then I guess it doesn't. But you can still try.

22:34<RDMDD>Get what back?

22:39<RDMDD>Does anyone here know how to customize the lightdm? The manual is a bit vague, and I haven't seen some templates yet. There aren't any greeters for it to download yet either.

22:43<galaxy>yo guys
22:43<galaxy>I booted up installer via usb
22:43<galaxy>I went to partion screen, i checked out sda3 and the mount point was not set to '/' and the bootable flag was ''on'', could it be because debian and crunch bang are using the ext3 file system?
