00:04<greenbagels>I messed up some boot stuff
00:04-!-althaser_ [] has joined #debian
00:04<greenbagels>And now I can't boot back into windows
00:04<SamB>greenbagels: well, if you install Debian like you had it before you should at least be able to boot into Windows again ...
00:05<SamB>greenbagels: also, I suspect Microsoft has something on the knowledge base about how to re-install the bootloader ...

00:10<hme>I have been trying to ./configure some good respectable code, it is looking for a "Posix.h", and cannot finds such a thing. Long in the past, 2007 to be exact, was the last this code was compiled on debian. Debian 5.0? Where is this Posix.h from? How can I give this good respectable code and its configure file that which it desires? I do not wish to leave it out in the cold.
00:11-!-Pillan [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:11<hme>I have allready given it python 2.4 (before the break-compatability change), it's happy, except for this one component. Posix.h
00:11<hme>What and where and from what does Posix.h hail?

00:13<hme>can you help me?
00:13<greenbagels>Pillan, it's more this EFI business that's causing trouble
00:15<SamB>hme: maybe you can find something by adding the appropriate dated snapshot from to your sources.list and using apt-file ?
00:15<SamB>I'm not positive you can do that with those snapshots though ...
00:16<hme>so you can't or won't help me

04:48<sreyan32>I am trying to install grub-efi-amd64. Where is the location of grubx64.efi ?
04:48<sreyan32>Do I run grub-mkconfig after or before grub-install ?
04:49<babilen>sreyan32: You should typically use "update-grub2" rather than to call grub-mkconfig directly
04:50<sreyan32>babilen: will that give the grubx64.efi file ?
04:50<stderr>As far as I can tell grubx64.efi doesn't exist.
04:50<babilen>sreyan32: What are you trying to do exactly, what have you done, what happened (show us on ) and what did you expect to happen instead?
04:51<sreyan32>stderr: Then what do I copy into /boot/efi/EFI/boot directory.
04:51-!-Stb [] has joined #debian
04:52-!-Stb [] has quit []
04:52<sreyan32>stderr: As far as I know you have to copy in a .efi file into your EFI partition for letting GRUB boot.
04:52<stderr>I would expect update-grub2 to do what needs to be done.
04:52<babilen>sreyan32: The way to install grub that is most frequently done is to run "update-grub2" and to execute "grub-install /dev/sdX" afterwards.

05:10-!-e0x [] has joined #debian
05:11<babilen>sreyan32: Are you sure that that is your Debian system?

05:11-!-OdyX [] has joined #debian
05:11<babilen>sreyan32: Did you chroot like that?
05:12<babilen>And then it seems to have found a squeeze kernel.
05:12<sreyan32>babilen: Yes. You told me to do that eariler. Yes I am running squeeze
05:13-!-mode/#debian [+l 618] by debhelper
05:13<sreyan32>babilen: After I get Debian up and running I want to upgrade to Wheezy.
05:13<sreyan32>babilen: What does the error message mean ?
05:13<babilen>You should upgrade to wheeze soon as squeeze is only supported until May -- Regardless of that: Did you tinker with /boot or /boot/grub ?
05:13<knives47z>wow you really have to be careful with these commands. just ran tee -a testfile{1..9}.txt <testfile1.txt and got stuck in a neverending write loop
05:14<babilen>knives47z: Well ....
05:14<babilen>.oO( Let's see what happens if I write to the file I am reading from ? )
05:14<sreyan32>babilen: /boot/grub is okay. What do I need to do ? What does it mean no device found ?
05:15<babilen>sreyan32: IIRC the video.lst file is generated by grub-install, complete the whole procedure and maybe repeat update-grub2
05:15<babilen>sreyan32: I wouldn't worry too much about it. Did you chroot *exactly* like in the factoid? (i.e. did you mount /dev, /proc and so on into the chroot?
05:15<knives47z>lol, was not intended that way. the file I was trying to read from had 0 on the end, instead I wrote a 1. and then the rest is history
05:16<sreyan32>babilen: What do you mean by IIRC the video.lst file ?? Do you want me to send the file to you ?
05:16<sreyan32>babilen: yeah I did it like in the factoid.
05:17<babilen>sreyan32: No, I don't. I want you to complete the *entire* procedure of installing grub (and to maybe repeat update-grub2) and to make sure that you mount everything you need into the chroot
05:17-!-towo` [] has joined #debian
05:17<sreyan32>babilen: Which entire procedure are you referring to ? The one given in the factoid ?
05:20<sreyan32>babilen: Do you want me to give the "entire" process of chrooting, and installing grub ?
05:20<babilen>sreyan32: I want you to at least run "grub-install /dev/sdX" ... feel free to run "update-grub2" again after you've done that
05:21<sreyan32>babilen: okay I will do just that. Please stay online.
05:21<babilen>sreyan32: I'll head out soon
05:22<sreyan32>babilen: When will you be back here ?
05:22<babilen>sreyan32: No idea, but there are plenty of other people. It might even "just work" once you've completed it?!
05:23<sreyan32>babilen: I wish I shared your optimism.
05:23<babilen>You should, it makes for days of bliss :D
05:23<sreyan32>babilen: Do I have to execute "modprobe efivars" before running efivars ?
05:24-!-grandie [] has joined #debian
05:24<sreyan32>babilen: Because "modprobe efivars" fails when I chroot into my Debian system.
05:24<babilen>What do you mean by "running efivars" ?
05:25<babilen>sreyan32: Well, you cannot modprobe things from the chroot into the host kernel ... why don't you just try the procedure now? You can be done withing one or two minutes!
05:25<sreyan32>babilen: Okay. Wish me Luck.

05:26<vishnu>How to install slim on my debian 7.2 gnome
05:27<babilen>vishnu: I wouldn't necessarily recommend using slim as it doesn't work very well with "modern" technologies such as logind, consolekit, dbus and whatnot (or at least used to) -- I'd recommend to simply use gdm3 or lightdm if you want a "slimmer" alternative.
05:27-!-Shahed [~Shahed@] has joined #debian
05:27<babilen>But you should be able to install it with "apt-get install slim" just fine
05:28<vishnu>But when i logout it is not changing
05:28<babilen>changing what?
05:29<babilen>Did you select slim as the default DM ?

05:30<babilen>vishnu: What does "cat /etc/X11/default-display-manager" give you? Did you stop gdm3 and started slim?
05:30<qwe>is there a torrent for Jessie cd image?
05:30<babilen>vishnu: But then I still wouldn't recommend to use slim
05:30<babilen>qwe: You shouldn't even use those images, but I am not sure if there are torrents ...
05:31<babilen>dpkg: tell qwe -about testing installer
05:31<babilen>qwe: You can use the stable installer to install testing, but then the recommended way is to install a minimal wheezy system (only standard task?) and to upgrade from that.
05:31<vishnu>How to change GDM theme
05:31<babilen>vishnu: So, stop gdm3 and start slim.

07:36<SynrG>sreyan32: so if you show yourself to be a bit more tractable than you have so far, yes, you will get help if you encounter problems installing wheezy.
07:37<_spOOn_>sreyan32: i think part of the problem has been that nobody understood that you were on dialup
07:37<_spOOn_>hard to believe that people still have to use that these days :)
07:37<SynrG>yes. it's vitally important you start with "this is what i'm trying to do and why" and not with the presenting symptom.
07:37<SynrG>that frames the entire discussion.
07:38<sreyan32>SynrG: Okay. I guess I have to get netinst Wheezy now. Thanks for all your support.
07:38<SynrG>no problem. and good luck
07:38<sreyan32>_spOOn_: Yup on a dialup. :-)
07:38<_spOOn_>sreyan32: remember to use a mirror close to you
07:38<_spOOn_>hopefully your isp has one
07:38<_spOOn_>otherwise netinst is going to take *a while*

07:50-!-kleptog [] has joined #debian
07:50<SynrG>hmm, only it doesn't use the word 'desktop'. that's odd
07:51<SynrG>sreyan32: if using CDs it does recommend "the first two CDs"
07:51<SynrG>however, you can install most of what you need just from the first one
07:51-!-cjm [] has joined #debian
07:51<SynrG>if so, you end up with a fairly bare desktop

07:57<abrotman>seriously ...
07:57<nadir>If it was me i would either use an internet caffee or a friends connection to download DVD's _or_ buy the DVD isos for a few $. And use them in /etc/apt/sources.list, not internet repos.
07:58<nadir>well: i would rather upgrade the connection, of course ...
07:58<_spOOn_>sreyan32: as SynrG said, the first cd will certainly get you enough to get up and going

08:02<NRKA_>where do i start to look?
08:02<SynrG>sreyan32: we're interested in the numbers in square brackets at the end, e.g. [1969:1062]
08:03<_spOOn_>SynrG: must have missed the fact that hes in some form of linux already :)
08:03<sreyan32>I am on windows now to do that I will again have to boot into Linux and copy that info
08:03<_spOOn_>thought he was stuck in windows
08:03<SynrG>_spOOn_: live image
08:03<_spOOn_>device manager
08:03<sreyan32>I am on windows 8.1
08:03<_spOOn_>oh ffs
08:03<sreyan32>hmm device manager then ?
08:03<_spOOn_>you're on your own
08:03<SynrG>08:15 < sreyan32> SynrG: Yup a ubuntu live image. Chrooting into my Debian system.
08:03<abrotman>Rube? Are you playing with us?!
08:04<_spOOn_>sreyan32: either way, maybe boot back off the live cd, then use the command SynrG provided (lspci -nn | grep -i ethernet), then use google :)

08:05<SynrG>don't need google.
08:05<SynrG>,pciid 08:15 < sreyan32> SynrG: Yup a ubuntu live image. Chrooting into my Debian system.

The pciid should be of the form 0000:0000.

08:05<SynrG>argh, sorry.
08:05<SynrG>wrong paste buffer
08:05<SynrG>,pciid [1969:1062]
08:05<judd>[1969:1062] is 'AR8132 Fast Ethernet' from 'Qualcomm Atheros' with kernel module 'atl1c' in wheezy. See also
08:05<SynrG>for example :)
08:06<SynrG>much faster than randomly googling for it :p

08:07<sreyan32>SynrG: Yeah I did chroot into my Debian but then how would i used my iRC then ?
08:08<SynrG>sreyan32: the live ubuntu image surely has setup for ppp? you don't need to use debian to do that command.
08:08<_spOOn_>sreyan32: use wvdial and create a ppp (dialup) connection
08:08<sreyan32>judd: is AR8161 supported ?
08:08<SynrG>sreyan32: no. judd bot needs the pciid
08:09<SynrG>even within the same model#, there can be different pciid's, some supported better than others.
08:09<SynrG>the pciid tells you definitively what hardware you have.
08:09-!-DavidBrooke [] has joined #debian
08:10<sreyan32>SynrG: According to my gigabyte specification Qualcomm AR8161 is what I have on boards
08:10<sreyan32>SynrG: is there anyway of getting the pciid on Windows ?
08:11<SynrG>ask ##windows @ otherwise, i don't know ... maybe buried down in Device Manager somewhere. it looks like 8 hexadecimal digits with a colon between two groups of 4.
08:11-!-hele_ [] has joined #debian
08:11<_spOOn_>looks like 1969:1091 is pretty standard for that card
08:12<SynrG>,pciid [1969:1091]
08:12<judd>[1969:1091] is 'AR8161 Gigabit Ethernet' from 'Qualcomm Atheros' with kernel module 'alx' in wheezy. See also

08:14<SynrG>ah, hmm. i'm not sure. just check that URL ...
08:14<sreyan32>SynrG: The "alx" driver was not recognized on Squeeze install
08:14-!-CutMeOwnThroat [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:15<SynrG>sreyan32: just a sec. that output from judd is confusing.
08:16<SynrG>first it says 'alx' in wheezy supports it. then it links to a page that does not show support :p
08:16<sreyan32>SyrnG: "alx" was not supported during squeeze install
08:16<SynrG>looks like it's there.
08:16<SynrG>(that's on a wheezy system i have)
08:16<kardan>I never saw that output before and am worried that this is something I should be worried about: Please have a look and tell me, how this looks like for you.
08:17<_spOOn_>sreyan32: even if its not supported during install, its not like you're going to be installing via ethernet anyways are you?
08:18<sreyan32>no. but when i need ethernet later i will be in a fix.
08:18<SynrG>gsimmons: help interpret what the driver check site returns? "Works?", "Driver", and "Kernel" columns are all blank.

08:30<planetmaker>it might even do what it says. Authorizing evil hackorz "CA" ;)
08:30<oldlaptop>sreyan32: Personally I would strongly suggest you try and get a full DVD set if you're on a 56k modem for Internet access
08:31<oldlaptop>even the *base* system (i.e. no GUI - what you get on a netinst disk) is about 150MB to download
08:31<oldlaptop>a full GUI environment will be at least several hundred more MB on top of that
08:31<_spOOn_>sreyan32: yes, i'd also suggest that, and perhaps check out the link i provided with the cd vendors in india
08:32<_spOOn_>oldlaptop: not entirely correct
08:32<_spOOn_>fluxbox + slim + xorg can be pretty light
08:33<planetmaker>my last apt-get update on sid was 1.500 MByte ;)
08:33<SynrG>kardan: maybe ... where/when/why did you get this plugin?
08:33<SynrG>kardan: is this your own system or someone else's?
08:33<oldlaptop>(not about to recommend fluxbox/etc to a windows refugee)
08:33<oldlaptop>but anyhow, if you get the full DVD set you'll have a complete copy of wheezy repos
08:34<oldlaptop>for main, anyhow
08:34<oldlaptop>which can still be used as a primary source for apt, IIRC
08:34<_spOOn_>oldlaptop: i understand your point, but I guess if you are bandwidth poor, and dont want to buy dvds (although im not sure why :)
08:35<_spOOn_>SynrG: probably correct

Ask me about <smart questions>, <sicco> and <errors>.
10:58<gtype>something about -h option to shutdown

11:58<edhelas_>but this way i'll make my software "linux dependant" no ?
11:58<abrotman>Instead of what?
11:58<abrotman>BSD? Windows?
11:59<abrotman>BSD also has /etc/, and I have no idea how Windows manages configurations for a web app
11:59<edhelas_>for the moment, if you want to deploy movim you just have to unzip the file on a webserver

12:15<dpkg>The "Message Of The Day" (MOTD) may be shown to users at login time. Since Debian 7 "Wheezy", motd is entirely under the control of the administrator; edit /etc/motd as desired. The dynamic part of the MOTD is in /run/motd.dynamic and is prepended to your /etc/motd; this dynamic part is generated by /etc/init.d/motd should you also need to customise it. See "man 5 motd". For Debian 6.0 "Squeeze", see <motd squeeze>.
12:15<_v_>mfpockets: given that motd is printed by a pam module, I'd suggest looking at /etc/pam.d/login
12:16<_v_>... and it will point you to /run/motd.dynamic... almost as fast as dpkg

15:29<sney>there's some odd advice on that page
15:29<sney>oh, 2009. but still
15:30<valdyn>rryoumaa: error messages have a typical context that makes them easier to debug - that context is usually among the first google hits on the error message
15:31<sney>(though less and less now that we have stackexchange)
15:31<rryoumaa>indeed sometimes true. just not with today's messages.

15:55<sney>ok, so stop any services you have going, do 'mount / -o remount,ro' and then 'fsck /dev/sda2'

15:55<rryoumaa>interesting. i didn't know you could do that. how do i stop all services?
15:55<rryoumaa>also didn't it already do the fsck in those messages? or are there different kinds?
15:56<petn-randall>rryoumaa: Is SMART enabled on that disk? Have you checked the stats?
15:56<rryoumaa>petn-randall: i am running smartctl -t long /dev/sda right now. is that the right command?
15:56<sney>those messages are just telling you to run fsck, mostly. it can only be run on a readonly filesystem

15:57<sney>by services I just mean stuff like mysqld or anything you might be hosting. exit X, too. little things like cron will survive
15:57<petn-randall>rryoumaa: That's the right command to run a long selftest. If the disk is already broken I wouldn't run that. You can check it with 'smartctl -a /dev/sda'.
15:57<Noggin>sorry, wrong window :-)
15:58<sney>smartctl can give false negatives though, so even if it says nothing is wrong, that doesn't mean nothing is wrong necessarily

16:17<petn-randall>rryoumaa: The values look ok. The interesting ones are "Current_Pending_Sector" and "Offline_Uncorrectable", they should be always 0. If not, it might be a problem. The others depend a little on the HDD if they're problematic.

16:19<rryoumaa>petn-randall: thanks. so 3rd value (THRESH) being 000 is the thing to look for?
16:20<petn-randall>rryoumaa: The last one, "RAW_VALUE", is what you want to look at.
16:21<petn-randall>rryoumaa: Don't worry about the others, some HDDs report bogus values, or values smartctl can't understand. If you have values like "22484153798027", and your drive apparently functioning normally, you can safely ignore them.

16:27-!-darkskiez [] has joined #debian
16:28<ompaul>kardan: traceroute needs elevated privs to get its hands on the kernel packets
16:28<valdyn>kardan: fakeroot does not get you root
16:28<kardan>and there is no such thing as fuse for net?
16:28<valdyn>kardan: and injecting packets needs root, no workaround

16:30<ompaul>the net is not a filesystem
16:30<valdyn>kardan: if its a browser extension that needs root then its broken by design

16:30<ompaul>kardan: it is a nice idea but frankly ... if you must you have to realise that the extension if hijacked has your box
16:31<ompaul>kardan: browsers have enough problems without giving them root access
16:31<ompaul>flash now with root access ;-)
16:31<kardan>it only uses browser data, but is not run by the browser directly

20:41<abrotman>nor should you
20:41<abrotman>dpkg: tell rob_ about non-free
20:41<abrotman>you should not point at 'stable'
20:41<rob_>OK, so how does one get flash to work?

23:15<dpkg>cat /etc/debian_version (or lsb_release -sc). Or check /etc/apt/sources.list. If unsure about the distribution, $ cat /etc/{*version*,*release*,*issue*} should grab almost all distributions.

23:17<stderr>!debian revision
23:17<dpkg>rumour has it, debian revision is a number added to the package number to show that the Debian maintainers for the package have had a number of attempts at the packaging. The Debian revision is the string after the last - in the version (1.2.3-5 has a Debian revision of 5) and will also indicate a security update (e.g.1+squeeze2) or an NMU. Ask me about <nmu> <binnmu> <compare versions> <version epoch>, or see section 5.6.12 of <policy>.
23:17<stderr>That's more like it...

23:18<stderr>Celelibi: But anyway, mixing releases is usually a very bad idea. I'm not even sure, if it's supported in #debian-next when you add experimental to the mix.
23:19-!-Bithur [~quassel@] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
23:19<Celelibi>I only pick a package from experimental for specific needs.
23:19<Celelibi>Mostly when I'm willing to work on the source directly.
23:20<Celelibi>Or to test the lastest kernel. :p

23:25<Celelibi>So in sid version "3.0s+debian-3" the upstream version is "3.0s+debian"?
23:26<Celelibi>That's puzzling that upstream version contains "debian".

23:36<Cullz>Hi - I've installed Debian 7.3.0 Wheezy amd64, I'm trying to get Video Downloadhelper plugin in Iceweasel to convert some youtube videos to mp3's - it is only working with some videos & not others

23:38<Cullz>The conversion fails (sometimes). So I think it's having trouble getting the audio from some of the original filetypes

23:44-!-jabowery [] has joined #debian
23:44<Celelibi>Youtube have mainly two formats IIRC. flv and mp4. Maybe download helper converter have troubles with one or the other.

23:48<houms>can anyone help me with mysql question? we have server withmysql at /var/lib/mysql. I want to cp it over to a temp location mount a new drive at /var/lib/mysql and copy the data back, is there a better way to do this?
23:48<Celelibi>I never had a problem with download helper for downloading videos fro youtube.

23:48<houms>I hear moving it is problematic. any help would be greatly appreciated
23:48<houms>what can i do?
23:48<_v_>houms: I normally move using mysqldump
23:48<houms>the box is running out of space.

23:49<Celelibi>If it's just a temporary move, you can just stop mysql the time to move your data around.
23:50<houms>so take backup and then setup new instance and then restore?
23:51<_v_>houms: that's how *i* would do it. Celelibi's method would work too.. but I'm the kind of woman who'd want to have a backup before doing that anyhow
23:51<houms>celeibi you have to forgive me mysql i am not an expert in, not sure what you mean by you can just stop mysql the time to move your data around?

23:52-!-Islander7149 [] has joined #debian
23:52<Celelibi>Not sure /etc/init.d is still the way to go with debian.
23:52-!-Nothing4You [] has joined #debian
23:52<Celelibi>maybe it's "service mysql stop" now.
23:52<houms>so move the data but leave the rest?
23:53<Celelibi>Just do what you wanted to do.
23:53<houms>i mean the rest of /var/lib/mysql
23:53<houms>but it sounds like i should not do that by your response
23:53<houms>i do not want to lose the data
23:54<houms>if I could just mount another point and stop mysql and copy the data to new mount point. what are my options at that point? do i have any?
23:54<Celelibi>The clean way would be to dump your databases in SQL format (with mysqldump for instance), and restore it afterwards.
23:54<houms>well it is a move mostly for space reasons
23:54<Celelibi>Dealing with the binary data of mysql is not good. Especially if mysqld is running.
23:55<houms>no i stopped it
23:55<houms>it is not running.
23:55-!-Islander7149 [] has quit []
23:55<houms>only thing i have done so far is stopped it, mounted new disk and started copying to new disk at /mnt/temp
23:55<houms>cp -pr
23:56<Celelibi>Then you'll mount it to /var/lib?
23:56<houms>if I could somehow just point mysql to the new mountpoint and tell it to run from there i would prefer to save me time
23:56<houms>well that was my question.
23:56<Celelibi>IIRC, mysqld have an option for that.
23:57<houms>once i have copied the mysql dir over to new mount what can i do?
23:57<Celelibi>But I'm not sure it is available from the normal way to configure mysqld.
23:57<Celelibi>Oh yes. See /etc/mysql/my.cnf
23:58<Celelibi>datadir should be what you're looking for.
23:58<houms>but can i just change it like that with out issue?
23:58-!-chealer [] has joined #debian
23:58<Celelibi>Yes, I think you can. But if it explode, it's not my fault.
23:59<Celelibi>sign here ->
23:59<houms>i mean again it is stopped so if i just copied all the files (i am waiting for the copy to finish), can i just point it to the new dir?
23:59<houms>i know it is not your fault
23:59<houms>it will be mine according to my boss
23:59<houms>i was hoping someone could help me
