00:14<Zoph>I'm having an issue with my DVD drive only reading CD's and not DVD's, when I insert a DVD it tells me "no medium found". I've tried everything I can think of and find on forums, anyone know of a solution?
00:14-!-thos37 [] has joined #debian
00:16-!-tempus [] has joined #debian
00:17<tempus>hey can anyone help with LMDE?
00:17-!-MoonGNatRouth [~MoonGNatR@] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
00:17<Zoph>what's your issue?
00:19<tempus>i upgraded my gf's laptop from Ubuntu and about to do the same to mine, idk how but the repos are not working and I need to know how to fix the repos for update and need to get her wifi card working
00:19<raku>zoph: are you entirely sure it's a dvd reader
00:20<raku>based on what?
00:20<raku>tempus: do you have Internet on her laptop
00:21<Zoph>Optical: /dev/sr0 model: HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GSA-H73N rev: B103 dev-links: cdrom,cdrw,dvd,dvdrw
00:21-!-supc [~smuxi@] has joined #debian
00:21<tempus>raku, I can get net when using ethernet cable
00:22<raku>what do you mean by "the repos arent working"
00:22<tempus>they are not the correct repos and it wont update
00:23-!-shirish_ [~quassel@] has joined #debian
00:23<tempus>maybe outdated or something, I have tried hitting the restore to default button and they still wont update
00:23<raku>and, just to confirm
00:24<raku>you've tried it with internet
00:24<tempus>I am not advanced with linux or even really intermediate, I have been tinkering with linux off and on for a few years but still have a lot to learn
00:24-!-ubu [~ubu@] has joined #debian
00:24<tempus>raku, yes I have
00:24<raku>where is it giving you the error
00:24<tempus>software sources, and update manager
00:25<tempus>the "shield" is the lower right corner has a red "X"
00:25<raku>im currently having an issue on a debian machine thats not even able to connect to the internet, part of testing stuff i was given this
00:25<raku> A suitable /etc/apt/sources.list for Debian 7 "Wheezy" has three lines: "deb wheezy main" "deb wheezy/updates main" "deb wheezy-updates main". Be sure to run «aptitude update» after editing sources.list. Also see <deb-src> <contrib> <non-free> <wheezy/updates> <wheezy-updates> <mirrors> <apt-spy> and "man sources.list".
00:25<raku>so just make sure its like that
00:25<Zoph>edit /etc/apt/sources.list
00:26<tempus>Zoph could you send me the proper list so I can edit
00:26<Zoph>i pm'd you
00:26<Zoph>the list
00:26<Zoph>i had to edit mine straight away also for some reason.

00:28-!-pushkar [~pushkar@] has joined #debian
00:29<Zoph>any ideas what could be wrong with it not detecting DVD media?
00:29<Zoph>i hvae
00:29<Zoph>i have tried everything I can think of, including enabling kernel polling
00:29-!-pushkar [~pushkar@] has quit []
00:29<Zoph>I can put freeBSD on and the drive works
00:30<raku>have you tried google?
00:30<Zoph>i have exhausted google
00:31-!-MoonGNatRouth [~MoonGNatR@] has joined #debian
00:31<raku>well, im afraid i cant help much
00:31-!-tweek [] has joined #debian
00:31-!-supaman [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:32<raku>there was some active people helping earlier but they suddenly went quiet
00:33<Zoph>i'm well versed in *nix/bsd but this has bewildered me
00:33-!-NomadJim [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:33<tweek>i'm having trouble partitioning with the debian installer. i'd like to start from scratch, but when i do 'create new partition table' it only pretends to do so, then gets confused by pre-existing partitions (error informing kernel about changes etc..). trying to set up encrypted lvm.
00:33<Zoph>I read somewhere it could be a bug in particular to this specific make of drive, but enabling kernel polling fixed it for others, it did not work for my machine.
00:34<tweek>so, my short question: can i force the installer to actually write a new partition table before i continue?
00:34<Zoph>have you tried formatting the drive first?
00:35<tweek>Zoph: what exactly do you mean by 'formatting'? i thought it goes like this: 1) create partition table 2) create partitions 3) format them with file systems
00:35<Zoph>is it telling you something about a swap partition and insecure data?
00:35-!-myname [] has joined #debian
00:36-!-myname [] has quit []
00:36-!-Zoph [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:36<tweek>Zoph: no, not even there yet. after creating a new partition table, then creating a new boot partition, it offers to keep existing data for that partition, although it's supposed to be newly created
00:37<tweek>because, i suspect, the new partition table is not actually written before applying all changes
00:37<tweek>i think i'll have to use a different live cd to actually create an empty partition table

00:44-!-shirish [~quassel@] has joined #debian
00:46-!-jardiamj [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:46<tempus>ok so when i try to edit /etc/apt/sources.list i get "Warning: unknown mime-type for "sources.list" -- using "application/octet-stream"
00:47<raku>how are ou editing it
00:47<tempus>err shell
00:50<raku>with what
00:50-!-X-Seti2 [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:50<peterS>"nano /etc/apt/sources.list" is not going to give you that warning. you must have typed something else.
00:51<peterS>nor will a "shell" give that warning
00:51<tempus>ok now I feel stupid, I was actually trying to simply read the list and see what was in it to correct if neccesary but i was simply using a terminal shell
00:51<tempus>was not using any editors
00:52-!-wigust [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:52<tempus>LMDE repos are separate from debian "wheezy" repos correct
00:52<peterS>(actually I guess my statement depends on the meaning of 'shell'. in the windows world, shell refers to software like Windows Explorer, which indeed could produce that sort of error. But in Linux and Unix, "shell" refers to an application with a text command prompt.)
00:53<tempus>peterS, yes I was using a simple shell "terminal" if you will
00:54<peterS>if you were using a shell, you must have typed something. what did you type?
00:54-!-erol [] has joined #debian
00:54<tempus>well I went into the /etc/apt dir then did and ls to see the files
00:55<peterS>'ls' is not going to produce that error
00:55<tempus>then tried edit sources.list
00:56<peterS>aha! yeah, 'edit' tries to open a file according to its type. if it doesn't recognise the file type, it will say just what you said it said
00:56<peterS>and sources.list isn't any specific known 'file type', as it is plain ascii text
00:56-!-ubu [~ubu@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:56<peterS>(so it would have then tried to fall back on the filename pattern to figure out the type, but ".list" does not denote a file type)
00:56<tempus>ok so what do i need to input to read the files or repos in that file and then correct them to proper LMDE repos so I can update and then maybe get the wifi card working
00:57<peterS>ok, anyway, to view the contents of a text file, use 'cat' or 'less' or (if less is not installed) 'more'
00:58<peterS>to edit, what you want is 'editor' rather than 'edit', unfortunately. though really 'editor' is just a wrapper that figures out what text editors you have installed and picks one. (The choice is not random, but from your perspective it may as well be. If you have a preferred editor such as 'nano', just type that explicitly.)
00:58<tempus>ok let me try that real quick, I am currently typing from my Ubuntu machine and after I get hers figured out I am going to install the same on my laptop
00:59<tempus>and yes I am rather behind the curve when it comes to most of the people here on irc's
00:59<raku>it would help if we knew what wifi card it is
01:00-!-Pratbrat [~Pratbrat@] has joined #debian
01:00<tempus>ok what command do i use to find out what card she has?
01:00<peterS>'lspci | grep Net' will do it, if you have pciutils installed
01:01-!-mange [] has joined #debian
01:01<peterS>(I think pciutils is installed by default but I can't remember for certain)
01:01-!-mange is now known as Saasgard

01:03-!-NightMonkey [] has quit [Quit: Body blow! Body blow!]
01:05<peterS>tempus: "Fast Ethernet Controller" sounds like ethernet, not wifi
01:05<peterS>since, you know, it says ethernet
01:06<tempus>yeah thats all its reading
01:06<peterS>(specifically 'fast ethernet' refers to 100 MB/s)
01:06<tempus>it might be turned off via hardware switch on the side of the laptop
01:06<Saasgard>I have a question finally.. :) ... I havnt had one for years but now im taking a course in object oriented C++. The teacher is crap and makes people hate C++, but its not so bad. Now, i need to know how to compute the numbers of the theoretical BigO <- Means the Odalo ... i guess ... So, How do i get the theoretically median of... quicksort: O(m*log2(n)) ?
01:06<tempus>I am trying to figure out which position on the switch is on?
01:07<peterS>tempus: hmmm I wonder if your wifi chip is actually behind a USB bus. you might try 'lsusb' to see. (I'm not sure if wifi chips are often USB - but Bluetooth chips often are anyway.)
01:07-!-supaman [] has joined #debian
01:07<peterS>Saasgard: that sounds like a homework question, and in particular it is not a Debian question
01:08<peterS>it also has nothing much to do with C++
01:08<peterS>anyway big-O is worst case, isn't it, not median?
01:08<Saasgard>peterS: Yes, it would be homework if it was a prerequisit of the class in question. We are investigating our class systems.
01:09<peterS>tempus: no need to PM
01:09<tempus>ok sorry
01:09<peterS>tempus: a 'logitech receiver' is just your wireless keyboard and mouse, I guess
01:10<tempus>Ok I know she has a wifi card because it worked in Ubuntu
01:10<Saasgard>Im pretty sure that the techer is going to get the boot by us anyhow because he has been misbehaving.
01:11<Saasgard>peter: LabX: Use XYZ, XYZ cannot be used! ... Heheh, can it be more useless ? :)
01:12<Saasgard>I have already fired some teachers for uselessness in their fields. They got the jobs, they didnt deserve them.
01:13<peterS>Saasgard: well anyway, I'm not sure where you got the O(m log n) - what do m and n refer to? there's just one size input, the number of elements to be sorted, no?
01:13-!-tweek [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
01:13<peterS>I mean, assuming the cost to compare two elements is a constant and not dependent on, say, _their_ sizes
01:13<Saasgard>Thats quicksort
01:14<rryoumaa>doesn't matter what base the log is
01:14<Saasgard>The rest is O(n2)
01:14<rryoumaa>(oh this is #debian)
01:14<peterS>also, with big-O notation, the log base isn't important - log2 and ln and log10 will all have the same big-O value
01:14<tempus>wondering why it is not recognizing any sort of card installed?
01:14-!-phinaliumz [] has joined #debian
01:14<peterS>ninja'd by rryoumaa
01:15<tempus>so which of my issues do you think is more pressing peterS
01:15<Saasgard>The base logarithm is crusial to the effectiveness of the sort and seek algorithms. Yeesh :)
01:15<tempus>the repos or the card?
01:16<peterS>tempus, I have no idea. I don't know why your card doesn't work in Debian and I don't know what you need the repository for.
01:16-!-rigved [] has joined #debian
01:17<Saasgard>tempus: Do you have something pressing against you ? :)
01:17<peterS>tempus: you might try lspci | grep -i net (note the -i, so it is not case-sensitive - I had you search for "Net" with the capital N earlier - I thought all wifi cards would match that, but it seems perhaps not)
01:18<peterS>tempus: actually I wonder if you followed my initial instructions, typing Net with a capital N. It seems to me if you had done so, it wouldn't have matched the Fast Ethernet controller, as that is listed as 'Ethernet' with a lower-case N
01:18<Saasgard>tempus: Girls can be like that, just ignore them and get work done :)
01:18<tempus>peterS, the repos are not working and I may have used a lower case n let me try it again
01:20<Saasgard>Do so. You should always re-iter and verify.

01:21<tempus>0b:00.0 Network Controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 082.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)
01:21<peterS>there you go. there's your wifi chip
01:21<peterS>as you can probably tell from the '802.11b/g' (:
01:22<tempus>Ok awesome now how do I enable it in LMDE
01:22-!-zz_triptiks is now known as triptiks
01:22<peterS>I have no idea, I've never used lmde. the chip itself uses the b43 driver, I believe, which has been in the Linux kernel (and thus in Debian) for a long time
01:22-!-triptiks [] has quit [Quit: Sayanora.]
01:22<raku>yes but i believe they made a new one and blacklisted the baked in one
01:23<raku>i would google around
01:23-!-triptiks [] has joined #debian
01:23-!-android_paranoid [] has joined #debian
01:23<Saasgard>Un-blacklist ut ... /etc/modules.conf and possible includes
01:23<peterS>well and also you may need b43-fwcutter from contrib, and your windows driver
01:24<Saasgard>Yes, peter is correct. Fw-cutter
01:24<peterS>(the firmware cannot be legally distributed by Debian, hence the software that extracts it from the Windows driver that you should have sitting around somewhere)
01:24<tempus>windows is not installed on that box at all
01:25<tempus>mine is dual boot Vista/Ubuntu for now, hers is fully LMDE
01:25<peterS>oh huh, it actually downloads the windows driver from broadcom's website, so you don't need it locally
01:25-!-tuxampol [] has joined #debian
01:26<tempus>ok i guess in order to get Fw-cutter i need to fix my repo issue ...correct?
01:26-!-jalcine is now known as Not
01:26<tempus>or is it native?
01:27-!-REalm [] has joined #debian
01:27<android_paranoid>it's in contrib
01:28<Saasgard>tempus: Did you buy the only remaining card that only worked for one operating system ? ... Microsoft is finally removing their less then good presence from the OS market. If they hadnt fought OpenGL like they did against all game developers will then their efforts hadnt been totally crappy ... Oh wait... Yeah.
01:30<tempus>Saasgard, no im just still learning how linux works, file system and all and its not that I dont have the desire just some of whats said by more "linux educated folk" goes right over my head simply for lack of experience
01:30<tempus>and yes I hate Microsoft as well
01:30<Saasgard>So, what did microsoft achieve, well... to stall mankind and their gamings.
01:30-!-android_paranoid [] has left #debian []
01:31-!-Not is now known as jacky
01:31<peterS>gentlemen, this is #debian, please don't confuse it with #microsoft_rants
01:32<Saasgard>tempus: And you should, because its really good to see that you perhaps have no viruses or anything in say 10 years time
01:32<tempus>yet linux is everywhere even in most places people dont realize such as android and "Megatouch" gaming systems in entertainment establishments all over the
01:32<peterS>we don't need the jingoism
01:32<Saasgard>tempus: We like our code and we code it well.
01:32-!-android_paranoid [] has joined #debian
01:33<tempus>I am working on that Saasgard I am just starting in Devry for the CIS degree
01:33-!-Fylar [~Fylar@2601:0:8d00:374:b5a1:d8e5:3c3b:cafd] has joined #debian
01:35<Saasgard>tempus: Youll like Linux for Uni studies i guess. We tend to balance it in a way usable by everyone and so on.
01:36<raku>ok so i have abox that i did a netinstall of debian 7 on
01:36<tempus>ok so now that I have my gf next to me with her un connected LMDE box and me on My Ubuntu box could you help me get my repos fixed with the contrib repo as well so I can get Fw-cutter
01:36<raku>but i did it without internet
01:36<Saasgard>we will have a chat with any theacher that doesnt conform to the democracy of having more then one operating system.
01:36<android_paranoid>tempus: can you pastebin your sources.list?
01:36<raku>so im only on tty
01:37<tempus>yes I have noticed most of my teachers aim towards MS however they have found more and more students using some form of linux distro
01:37-!-rryoumaa [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:37<raku>and my issue is im trying to get ndiswrapper on it, but when i try to tether it to my tablet it wont connect to the internet
01:38<raku>it will ping and display the ping message of it starting, but there are no responses
01:38-!-Saxman [] has joined #debian
01:38-!-frangor [] has joined #debian
01:38<raku>im not sure what the issue is
01:38<tempus>android_paranoid, I have to get her laptop to the ethernet cord as that is the only way she has net on her LMDE box
01:38<tempus>which I am working on this min
01:39<android_paranoid>have you checked the manpage for sources.list
01:39<android_paranoid>it should have examples along w/ the info
01:40<raku> this is what i did to tether my android tablet to the box
01:40-!-hashem [~hashem@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:40<raku>the commands return no errors and ive done a reboot
01:41<Saasgard>I dislike closing down universities. They tend to be rather good people once you get to meet them. But some teachers in individual cases can prove to be impossible to change and therefore removed. Best is to totally ignore their yapping by putting on a good tune:
01:41<Fylar>To the person who asked: For Debian, one adds "deb stable contrib" as a line to the /etc/apt/sources.list file for the contrib repository.
01:42<android_paranoid>yeah where you see "main non-free" etc
01:42<android_paranoid>you just add contrib basically, except on lines with deb-src
01:43<android_paranoid>unless you need the source and it's actually hosted in that repo
01:43<peterS>which it better be. contrib means the source is free, just like main
01:43<raku>any reason why i would be unable to get this to connect to the internet
01:44<Fylar>What exactly is the difference between contrib and main?
01:44<raku>this program has worked before on other linux distros when i needed internet on it
01:44<tempus>ok I am trying to bring her into this chat so she can pastebin
01:45<peterS>Fylar: main is self-contained. contrib has real or conceptual dependencies on external things, such as our non-free repository, or things hosted other places like the broadcom website
01:45<Fylar>Thanks peterS.
01:45<Saasgard>raku: You have a program ?
01:45<raku>im using the easytether app on android
01:46-!-aaaa [~asss@] has joined #debian
01:46<raku>and the .deb for it on linux
01:46-!-aaaa [~asss@] has quit []
01:46<android_paranoid>section 2.2
01:46<peterS>Fylar: so, e.g., the Adobe Flash plugin downloader lives in contrib, because while the package itself is free software, its only purpose in life is to download and install the Adobe Flash plugin, which is not only _not_ free, but can't even be distributed directly by Debian (so that's why the package has to download it from adobe's website)
01:47<android_paranoid>adobe flash is the penultimate definition of non-free
01:47<Fylar>Thanks. I use PepperFlash.
01:47<Saasgard>raku: Seems like a section alright. So an app isnt doing what you would like it to do ?
01:47<peterS>android_paranoid: penultimate means next-to-last. what's the last definition, then?
01:47<raku>im not getting interet
01:47<Saasgard>raku: Cant be the first time thats happened :)
01:47<android_paranoid>i'd say microsoft products like windows
01:48<android_paranoid>i mean at least we get a version of flash in some form
01:48<raku>nope, usualy tethers fine on most distros ive used
01:48<android_paranoid>which works in linux
01:48<Fylar>raku: are you trying to install an OS?
01:48<peterS>android_paranoid: I dunno, if you want a scale of free to non-free, there's stuff out there far less free than your average Microsoft product
01:48<raku>im trying to get internet to work
01:48<android_paranoid>though i dont have flash installed personally, i only have 1 package from non-free which is my wifi driver
01:48<raku>already have a stripped down verison of debian on here
01:48<Saasgard>Microsoft isnt going to make anymore operating systems. They got beat.
01:48<raku>only have tty availible
01:48<tempus>ok this is weird I have her connected via ethernet and she is Xchat debian channel and none of our convo is showing up
01:49-!-jacky is now known as jalcine
01:49<raku>tempus:are other internet related things working
01:49<tempus>I have the laptops next to each other how do I modify the sources.list
01:49<peterS>tempus: maybe it's not on the same IRC server. we're on aka, maybe your other IRC client is on some other network
01:49<tempus>yes I am on here via wifi
01:49<android_paranoid>tempus: edit /etc/apt/sources.list
01:49<raku>no no, i meant on the laptop
01:49<android_paranoid>as a super user
01:50<Saasgard>I think they should make electric cars go long-range like they have begun work on. To do something meaningful.
01:50<android_paranoid>it's a plaintext file
01:50<peterS>android_paranoid: he tried that, literally, with the 'edit' command, which isn't what you think it is
01:50<Saasgard>For a change.
01:50<peterS>android_paranoid: so, um, be more specific (:
01:50<raku>do su -c "nano /etc/apt/sources.list"
01:50<android_paranoid>edit it w/ w/e text editor you're using is what i really meant
01:50<Saasgard>Why complicate things
01:50<Fylar>tempus: "sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list"
01:50<ncl>sudo apt edit-sources
01:50<android_paranoid>sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
01:51<ncl>get with the future guys
01:51<Saasgard>echo "Hello" >> file.txt
01:51<peterS>ncl: yes, well, in #debian we don't like to assume someone's on unstable
01:51<peterS>or even jessie which I see has the new apt now
01:51<android_paranoid>i always rock weezy
01:52<raku>i just need this tether to work for a bit so i can get ndiswrapper so i can install the drivers for my wifi card
01:52<Saasgard>Rocking is sweet, but to really rock you need to be rocking Mr Raki android_paranoid
01:53<tempus>peterS, on what is the newserver she was in linuxmint server so I added it to the list and its not connecting
01:53-!-sergej [~sergej@] has joined #debian
01:54<android_paranoid>we're on
01:54<Fylar>I just love Debian for its stability. Ubuntu->crashes when some programs are run (it just always adds unstable packages). Fedora->whenever you try to install something, there are conflicting packages.

02:03<Fylar>I wonder. Can Ubuntu and Linux Mint use the debian repositories. I think they can.
02:03<Saasgard>If its got the same glibc-schematic
02:04<Saasgard>you see, glibc is the core of what the kernel runs upon.
02:04<somiaj>Fylar: sure you can, but you will be entering a world of pain!
02:05<Fylar>Saasgard: yeah. if only debian would add the latest version of glibc, we would all be happy.
02:05<raku>alright here we go

02:06<Saasgard>It also needs a few other packages. Fylar, if you want to really know how you can run a Linux system you can try LFS and BLFS. Knowing these parts lets you build your own distro but its much work unless you automate it.. also much work but totally cool.

02:07<somiaj>Fylar: do to how debian uses shared libaries dependcies and versions are fairly important and mixing from different debian reopos is bad enough, going to a different os with different core policys will eventally leave your machine in a bad state.

02:11<raku>ive researched this heavily
02:11<raku>its a netgear wg311v3
02:11<raku>an oooolldddd card
02:11<somiaj>Fylar: The nice way to get newer software in debian or software that isn't packaged is to compile it from source so it links against your core debian libaries and lives nicely
02:11<somiaj>Fylar: once ya get use to this you do have a lot more you can do. Note things like glibc are a core compoent, I wouldn't upgrade that since everything else depends on it.
02:12<tempus>what is it to save the changes in nano
02:12<Fylar>somiaj: Good idea. That's one thing I have not considered.
02:12<Fylar>tempus: ctrl+x, and then y
02:13<raku>alright its worked
02:13<raku>i can see it in iwconfig
02:13<somiaj>Fylar: this is what is called backporting, and debian does provide wheezy-backports with some newer software already done for you. Some you may have to do yourself. Works great for some things, others not so much (such as upgrading all of xfce, way to much going on there)

02:15<Saasgard>somiaj: To be able to upgrade it --- dist-upgrade is very important though. Its one of the hardest tasks when coding to make an operating system the best it can possibly be. Debian/Ubuntu is ok, but it asks if i want to keep old packages that wont work anyhow so that question should be removed.
02:16<Saasgard>But its the best system to upgrade glibc on. I cant remember when it didnt work.
02:16<somiaj>Saasgard: use aptitude if you want auto packages automatically removed when the dependencies are removed. apt-get is a bit simipler and dose not assume you want to remove them unless you run autoremove.

02:22<Fylar>somiaj: is the package called ssb? I can't find it.
02:23<somiaj>Fylar: the issue is say you want to install package X on your system. Well package X was built on unstable, so it now wants to bring in unstable core dependeices. so now you have not only package X (which is probabaly fine to have) you have core packages A,B,C on your system that are also from unstable, and these may not work well with all of your other software. Hence why we don't want to mix repos. If you use wheezy don't add ...
02:23<somiaj>... sources that are not built to be compadable with wheezy. (:
02:23<somiaj>Fylar: I told a bot in this room to send you a factiod in a private message, in it he has a set of instructions known as a 'simple sid backport' for how to comiple say sid software on wheezy.
02:24<somiaj>Fylar: again this is hit and miss, the bigger the procject the more it could take more than a simple backport.

02:37<tempus>Fylar, or you really mess something up
02:37<Fylar>somiaj: try "unetbootin"
02:37<Saasgard>Fylar :)
02:37<Saasgard>Be nice
02:37<somiaj>tempus: actually the debian iso are already made to be bootable so you just need write them directally to the usb drive. Various tools to do that.
02:37-!-sergei [~sergei@] has joined #debian
02:37<tempus>tried thatr
02:37<somiaj>Fylar: that tool has a chance of making a debian iso unbootable. You want to use a direct copy tool. In windows win32diskimage is what we suggest
02:38<Fylar>Tempus: use unetbootin
02:38<tempus>tdo I need to put all 8 disks onto 1 usb or just the first 1
02:38<somiaj>tempus: in a linux base distro this is how easy it is to make a usb bootable with a debian iso, 'cp debian.iso /dev/sdb' where /dev/sdb is the device of your usb drive
02:38<somiaj>tempus: just the first, you can get away with the netinstall, if you are going to use wifi I'd suggest the nonfree net isntall image
02:39<somiaj>Fylar: that is bad advise, debian iso are hybrid and are already bootable. unetbootin is overkill and in many cases will make the thing unbootable
02:39-!-sergei [~sergei@] has quit []
02:39<somiaj>or if it is bootable nake it not able to find the usb in the installer
02:39<Fylar>tempus: just the first. the others are other optional programs you'll probably never install
02:39<tempus>i have 6 of the disks downloaded and copied the 1st to usb and it was not recognized as bootable
02:39<somiaj>tempus: how did you copy it to the usb
02:40<tempus>hence why i ended up with LMDE
02:40<Fylar>somiaj: no wonder...
02:40<somiaj>tempus: notice I am coping it to the usb device, not to the filesystem
02:40<Saasgard>Cool, i have your land lines. Im not sure why but its not booring i guess.
02:40<Saasgard>How are you doing ?
02:40<somiaj>Fylar: debian makes really nice iso that just need to be written to the system with a direct copy. cp, cat and dd in linux all can do it. win32diskimager (or something like that) is a simple win32 tool that will do it

02:43-!-Saasgard [] has quit [Quit: Lämnar]
02:44<somiaj>Fylar: the iso is the exact image you want on the device. there is no extracting it, just putting the image on the device (this contains the bootloader (both mbr and efi) along with the partition table and everythying. so once the direct copy is done you have yoru install media ready, no need for fancy tools

02:45-!-rigved [] has quit [Quit: Bye]
02:45<Fylar>somiaj: when putting the image onto my dvd, booting from it results in the debian installer loading up. What's to say it works differently for a thumbdrive?
02:45<somiaj>Fylar: the problem is tools like unetbootin actually try to not only write the image to the usb drive, make it bootable which then cloobers the stuff already setup
02:46-!-rigved [] has joined #debian
02:46<somiaj>Fylar: it works exactally the same, only difference is you 'burn the image' to a dvd, the question is how od you write the image to your usb drive. As I said 'cp' works jsut fine for this

02:47<raku>i did iwconfig wlan0 essid "network-name"
02:47<somiaj>putting the image on the usb is different than copying the image onto the file system on the device.
02:47<raku>then iwconfig wlan0 key s:password
02:47<somiaj>raku: I see doing it manually, did you ifconfig wlan0 up first? (I think that may be needed)
02:47<somiaj>raku: personally I use the interfaces file for this and the ifup/down scripts
02:48<raku>i did
02:48<Fylar>somiaj: Isn't burning the iso to dvd the same thing as copying the files within to the usb root?
02:48<raku>okay ill check that
02:48<raku>what would i type
02:48<somiaj>Fylar: no the image contains more than the files, it also contains the file system the files are lviing on (and any partition setup including boot records and the likes)

02:52<somiaj>raku: if you wanted it to auto connect (i.e. you only use one network) just call the network 'wlan0' the actually device
02:52<somiaj>raku: then put a line int eh same file 'auto wlan0'

02:58<orneryolphart>Howdy y'all. I'm on my husband's account, to ask a question for him. He has rheumatoid arthritis and other serious issues with his hands which render typing extremely painful. What is the best speech recognition software available for Debian?
02:58<orneryolphart>He needs it for both commands (loading programs, etc.) and in place of typing.
02:59<orneryolphart>We've Googled, but aren't finding any definitive answers and he'd really rather not use Windows.
02:59<somiaj>PHeanEX: apt-get has a --download-only flag or something similar, check the man page

03:02-!-tweek [] has joined #debian
03:02<Fylar>orneryolphart: I don't know of any speech recognition programs, but you should consider the Dvorak keyboard layout. It makes typing a lot easier on the fingers. "QWERTY was developed to slow down typewriters so that they didn't jam. Dvorak was designed for keyboards so that people could type more efficiently. It also has health benefits when compared to QWERTY.

03:05<raku>ok so somiaj to confirm
03:05<raku>add a new line that says auto wlan0

03:05<orneryolphart>somiaj, thank you. That's a start. We've downloaded the sphinx software and have been checking for other options.
03:05<Fylar>I had a difficult time learning a new keyboard layout as well, but there is a great program called "gtypist" that has a whole section on Dvorak that gives hours of (torturously useful) lessons.
03:06<somiaj>raku: correct, and we can test it if you like, but lets frist get your wifi card up and online with the interfaces file before we worry about making it automatic
03:07<PHeanEX>somiaj: lets try it with an example: mysql-server; apt-get download mysql-server just downloads me the virtual package, not the actual mysql package nor dependencies, apt-get --download-only install mysql-server needs root, and if i use root, then it does not download anything if the package is already installed

03:11<somiaj>PHeanEX: my first way may not always work as it will only download the direct depends of your package, but it may not download the depends of depends, but here
03:11<PHeanEX>somiaj: apt-rdepends + a download button would be nice ;-D
03:11-!-phdeswer [] has joined #debian
03:11<raku>ok somiaj on more question, how do i make it so i can ssh into the box
03:11<orneryolphart>Fylar, e says he can live with WINE, but asks "Doesn't that limit one to using it in conjunction with programs within WINE?"
03:12<somiaj>PHeanEX: aptitude download ?reverse-depends(mysql-server)
03:12<somiaj>raku: apt-get install ssh
03:13<PHeanEX>somiaj: not the right syntax?
03:14<raku>alright it installed what next
03:15<Fylar>orneryolphart: No. Such a restriction only applies when using a virtual machine (and in some cases not even then). There is, however, a program that I just found called Xvoice. It is currently only packaged for rpm systems, but with the program called "alien" you can convert it so that it can be used on deb systems.
03:15<raku>im assuming i need to setup an openssh server
03:15<somiaj>PHeanEX: this may be easier syntax (I'm still novis with this)
03:15<somiaj>raku: it shoudl be setup and running, ssh away
03:15<somiaj>PHeanEX: aptitude download ~RBmysql-server
03:15<wigust>Phoenix: As an alternative use VM with Debian Standard and apt-get --download-only install <package>
03:15<somiaj>PHeanEX: if that doesn't work because it doens't do depends of depends, this notation of aptitude is smart enough you can make a loop that will
03:16<somiaj>wigust: if he was gonna use tha tmethod I woudl suggest just use debootstrap and do it inside of a minimial chroot
03:16<somiaj>far easier than a vm in my opinion
03:16<raku>and with ssh i wont need to login to the box i can login through ssh

03:30<Fylar>Why is the bot named dpkg? Isn't that just a package tool?
03:30<PHeanEX>somiaj: it works, at least it downloads some packages, apt-rdepends mysql-server still gives me a lot more dependencies (is aptitude missing some?)
03:31<babilen>Fylar: We needed a name, that name came up, everybody liked it, yay
03:32<PHeanEX>somiaj: just take a look at "apt-rdepends mysql-server | sort | uniq | grep Depends:"

03:36<PHeanEX>somiaj: did this and it downloads a lot more now => aptitude way not complete/correct ?
03:38<somiaj>oh I wonder if aptitude isn't downloading things that aren't installed, that is strange
03:38-!-jn86 [] has joined #debian
03:38<somiaj>yea that is what is happening here, aptitudes list is full, but I wasn't downloading isntalled debs
03:39<somiaj>or maybe it doesn't download thigns that are in /var/cache/apt/archives/
03:39<PHeanEX>somiaj: ok that's not so nice
03:42<somiaj>well according to the manpage it should work, I wonder why it isn't
03:43<PHeanEX>somiaj: okay but the apt-rdepends method with a for loop seems to work quite nicely, do you know of any way to tell apt-get download/or aptitude to download for another architecture than the current one?
03:43<somiaj>it should download teh exact same list as the aptitude search "?reverse-depends(mysql-server)" shows, but in my case adduser is in that list but not being downloaded and I wonder if it because it is installed
03:43<somiaj>PHeanEX: na apt wont' know about stuff for other aches that are not enabled.
03:43<somiaj>PHeanEX: what is it you are trying to do, I think we have an XY problem here
03:46<somiaj>PHeanEX: actually how many packages should I get (did you get) for teh full reverse depends?
03:46<PHeanEX>somiaj: yep lets backstep ;-): company builds software -> i build debian package out of it -> sometimes new dependencies are added -> update package-repository(reprepro) -> build custom debian cd with all necessary packages on it

03:57<PHeanEX>somiaj: seem to be 61 packages
03:58<somiaj>babilen: vs
03:59<somiaj>PHeanEX: aptitude comes up with adduser wich is a predepends, so I dont think that is the case, I did see a bug in teh man page
03:59<somiaj>apt-rdepends also does not know how to stop after a certain depth has been reached. -- maybe it digs extra stuff up, but I'm not really sure. Seems to be a big difference
04:00<babilen>somiaj: Ah, apt-rdepends gives the transitive closure of "apt-cache rdepends"
04:00<PHeanEX>somiaj: we dont want apt-rdepends to stop dont we?
04:00<PHeanEX>simaj: this is what i would also expect from the aptitude way

04:01<PHeanEX>babilen: ah thanks that makes it a lot easier ;-D
04:02<somiaj>babilen: did the aptitude command actually miss repends, think you need to do a forloop in its logic to go though teh reverse depends of all the packages it finds or is it's list sufficent?
04:02-!-mpfusion_ [] has joined #debian
04:03<babilen>somiaj: Well, it depends. Packages naturally only state their immediate dependencies and don't really care what those packages depend on as that would mean hardcoding implementation details (and would also make it impossible to maintain)
04:03-!-pwr [~pwr@] has joined #debian
04:04<somiaj>yea I was thinking that, but mysql-server only really depends on one package, so aptitude is doing some depth but wasn't sure how complete it was going.
04:04<babilen>somiaj: In a way both are useful for different applications, but I've personally only ever needed apt-cache rdepends, but I guess that apt-rdepends might have its uses too. The stuff I can think of immediately is, however, handled by judd (judd: why $PKG1 $PKG2 -- is there a chain between those packages?)

04:07<PHeanEX>babilen: what i need are all the packages that a given packages needs to be installed in order to be installed -> depends?
04:08<somiaj>I think is actual problem is as his company's software changes he needs to pull all a set of debs off a repo so he can make a cdrom out of it.

04:09-!-bernat [] has joined #debian
04:10<PHeanEX>somiaj: at the moment we just use a official debian cd and enhance it with our packages and maybe preseed and stuff
04:10<babilen>The rest of the packages are installed simply by calculating the transitive closure and sorting the dependency graph topologically
04:11<babilen>PHeanEX: And you want to include *all* packages that might be needed by your software in addition to those that are already on whatever CD it is you are using?
04:11<PHeanEX>babilen: fyi the system this distribution will be installed on will have no internet access -> all the packages have to be on board ;-)
04:13<babilen>PHeanEX: You can probably write some code to compute the transitive closure based on some loops and "apt-cache depends", but I'd ask in #debian-cd as they will most likely have a tool already to decide which packages to put on which CD/DVD/BD
04:13<PHeanEX>babilen: its actually really simple: we have a standard debian stable cd + our debian package, what we need is a complete cd/dvd to install the system with our software

04:14<babilen>PHeanEX: Yes, I understand what you are trying to achieve, but I have never worked on a similar problem and am therefore in very much the same position you are in right now. I'd ask #debian-cd if they are aware of a tool to compute the transitive closure of package dependencies you are after.
04:14<babilen>PHeanEX: I am referring to #debian-cd the IRC channel
04:14<somiaj>do you think apt-rdepends is not doing a good enough job at that?
04:15<PHeanEX>babilen: i think it does
04:15<babilen>No, apt-rdepends has it the other way round. If you run "apt-rdepends MYCOMPANYPKG" you would get all packages that depend on your package not all packages it depends on.
04:16<PHeanEX>babilen: somiaj: shouldnt i be save if i take the package-pool which is on the official debian cd , put additionally all the packages on it that apt-rdepends gives me + our software => done?
04:16<babilen>You want "apt-cache depends YOURPKG" + recursive calls for all other packages (i.e. transitive closure of "apt-cache depends)
04:17<somiaj>babilen: sure you aren't backwards (I seem to get them confused) but from the output it apt-rdepends first finds the mysql-server depends on mysql-server-5.5, it then finds all the pacakges mysql-server-5.5 depends on, and keeps going.
04:17<babilen>PHeanEX: See for some applicable algorithms
04:18<PHeanEX>babilen: yeah but i think apt-rdepends gives us that already
04:18<PHeanEX>babilen: man apt-rdepends
04:18<babilen>somiaj: I might have misunderstood what apt-rdepends does (due to a misunderstanding of "rdepends" as "reverse dependency" rather than "recursive dependencies")
04:19-!-RetcylHabibla [] has quit [Quit: Lämnar]
04:19<PHeanEX>babilen: from the manual of apt-rdepends : apt-rdepends - performs recursive dependency listings similar to apt-cache
04:19<babilen>"rdepends" is typically used as "reverse dependency" in the context of other tools (apt-cache, aptitude, ...)
04:19<babilen>PHeanEX: Yeah, sounds as if it is what you want then.
04:20<PHeanEX>babilen: okay great then ;-)

04:26<PHeanEX>somiaj: which docu says that?

04:39<babilen>PHeanEX: No, don't use dd in this case. cp is working just as well and will be faster and easier to use
04:39<PHeanEX>babilen: why not? especially if you want it to be bootable?
04:40<babilen>tempus: No, download it and copy it with cp to your USB and finish of with "sync" as indicated above
04:40-!-orak3l__ [] has joined #debian
04:40<PHeanEX>babilen: like in here ->
04:41<tempus>ok so am I formatting it first?
04:41<somiaj>babilen: anyways I'm still trying to unfoncuse myself, aptitude search "?reverse-depends(mysql-server)" returns lots of packages, such as libc6. I can't figure out why libc6 Depends: debtype is matching the pattern mysql-server.
04:41<babilen>PHeanEX: dd uses suboptimal blocksizes by default which will cause the write to be slower and also has awkward syntax. I much prefer "cp debian.iso /dev/sdb ; sync" over "dd if=debian.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=1M ; sync"
04:41<babilen>somiaj: Because mysql-server depends on libc6
04:42<PHeanEX>babilen: cp uses variable blocksizes then?
04:42<babilen>PHeanEX: It does, yes.
04:42<PHeanEX>babilen: okay ill try that one the next time then ;D
04:43<babilen>tempus: No, you don't do *anything* to your stick before you write the data to it. The images are really all you need and no magic is needed, just write it to the stick exactly as it is.
04:43<PHeanEX>babilen: but why in the world is everyone recommending the dd way then?
04:44<tempus>ok it is in fact /dev/sdc
04:44<babilen>PHeanEX: It seems to be a common misconception that dd allows for "low-level" writing or access that cp is incapable of. I only use dd (or rather the enhanced dcfldd) if I have to define offsets or want to copy a specific number of blocks of size FOO
04:44<tempus>so use the cp method?
04:44<tempus>as sudo?

04:48<somiaj>babilen: yea I can't keep my head straight because I thought you said reverse-depends were all packages that depended ON mysql-server not all packages mysql-server depends on.
04:49<somiaj>tempus: once that command is done you will have a bootable usb.
04:49<tempus>ok I believe it is writing as we speak
04:49<somiaj>tempus: correct it will return you to the prompt once it is complete
04:50<somiaj>babilen: maybe the light bulb just came one. (:
04:50<tempus>ok so once I get wheezy installed will I have the same driver issues and wifi not working
04:51<somiaj>tempus: Was it your wifi required ndiswrapper?
04:51-!-NIN [] has joined #debian
04:51<somiaj>tempus: the common issue with debian is needing non-free firmware
04:51<tempus>she has a broadcom device
04:52<tempus>which was discussed in the bw43-fwcutter
04:52<tempus>i think its the 4012
04:52<somiaj>babilen: the issue I was having was mysql-server has only one Depends, but the pattern was also hitting the 'mysql-server-5.5', 'mysql-server-5.5:i386' packages as well and giving me their depends.
04:53<somiaj>tempus: oh yea, I have had to setup one of those. Do you have a wired internet you can use (make your life a lot easier) else you are gonna have to go grab some files from the internet and copy them over to the install
04:53-!-ToApolytoXaos [~ToApolyto@] has joined #debian
04:53<somiaj>tempus: maybe a usb wired internet or usbwireless you can use tempaory to get the firmware on your system
04:54<tempus>Yes with her LMDE I was able to use ethernet just not wifi and the weird thing is on boot the speakers worked yet once booted say on youtube for example no sound
04:55<somiaj>tempus: two possibilities, one coudl be multiple sound cards and they were detected in a different order, other could be lmde doesn't have software mixing set up.
04:55<tempus>sad thing is I liked everything else about this distro was fast and clean and Debian based
04:56<tempus>ok im going to stick the usb in to boot and see how goes...brb
04:56<somiaj>PHeanEX: okay finally figured out what the aptitude ?reverse-depends was doing, we were getting the Depends: list from any package whose name matched the pattern 'mysql-server', thus we were getting the Depends: list of just a few mysql-server-foo packages
04:57-!-mode/#debian [+l 641] by debhelper

04:58<tempus>thats what scares me, she needs a puter for school here in a week or 2 and her laptop had windows 7 but had a virus so I wiped it and put Ubuntu on for her but the more I looked at wheezy the more I liked it then stumbled on a youtube for LMDE and she loves the color green so thought it would be fitting, it seemed to get good reviews

04:59-!-kilian_ [] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
05:00<babilen>PHeanEX: dd is not needed at all, cp can write *everything* just fine and there really is no "special write mode" for bytes at the beginning of the device. /dev/sdc is a file just like any other file too even though it represents a hard disk
05:00<somiaj>PHeanEX: well it just didn't do it recursivally, the confusing part is we were just matching multiple packages with your search pattern.
05:00<somiaj>PHeanEX: at least teh confusing part to me (:
05:02<PHeanEX>babilen: okay but if i'd like to just write the first byte of a file to another one, can copy also do this?=

05:07<PHeanEX>somiaj: this would be against my understanding dependencies
05:08<PHeanEX>somiaj: +of
05:08<somiaj>PHeanEX: no it matched various pcakge names, for example ?reverse-depends(lib) would match every package that ad lib in their name and then find the dependencies of that package

05:08<PHeanEX>somiaj: is this useful ? ;-D
05:08<somiaj>PHeanEX: aptitude search "?reverse-depends(^mysql-server$)" -- narrow your matching string, now it does what I expect it to. Gives me the reverse-depends of that single package
05:09<somiaj>PHeanEX: might be useful to some, it is a search option after all.
05:09<PHeanEX>somiaj: okay :-)
05:10<somiaj>more than likely they are using standard pattern searching tools and didn't want to limit the pattern to be exact package names
05:10-!-pamaury [] has joined #debian
05:10<somiaj>but that was the cause of my confusing, I was only expecting it to give depends of a single package mysql-server not all similarly named packages (:
05:11<PHeanEX>somiaj: but apt-rdepends seems to limit it to the exact package names?
05:11<somiaj>correct because it is using package names, not pattern matching
05:11<somiaj>it also does it recursivally which is what y ou really wanted anways

08:52<biketron>Hi i got a Problem with my Dell Studio XPS-1340 I can't get the Headphone working well. I already tried all the module parameters but nothing worked so far.... The Problem itself is quite Interresting it is not the case that there is no sound on the output.. it seems that the left and right channel are mixed in some strange case
08:53<biketron>So an Workaround is to set the Balance all left or all right to get mono sound (which sounds ok) but isnt what i want ;)

08:54<LePsy666>hi all, can someone help with a postfix/procmail issue ?
08:56<dpkg>Please do not ask if anyone can help you, knows 'something' or uses 'some_program'. Instead, ask your real question. (If the real question _was_ "does anyone use 'some_program'?" ask me about <popcon> instead.) See <ask> <ask to ask> <polls> <search> <sicco> <smart questions>.
08:58<LePsy666>k so I want my postfix server to distribute email using procmail. I have configured the "mailbox_command = procmail" and created a /etc/procmailrc file with a log file and I have no clue to know if procmail is used. Nothing in postfix logs and nothing in procmail logfile

13:04<Eion>Have the Debian apt keys been affected by Heartbleed?
13:04<Spidernet>Eion: no.. just the openssl
13:04<mentor>"apt keys"?
13:05<Eion>@mentor For apt authentication.
13:05<mentor>Eion: The archive signing keys?
13:05<mentor>for packages?
13:05<Eion>mentor: Those would be the ones.
13:06<mentor>I don't believe those would have been exposed using OpenSSL
13:06<mentor>Or, the packages are signed and verified offfline
13:07<Eion>mentor: Also since they're GPG, not OpenSSL, right?
13:07<Spidernet>Eion: there's been a patch for the heartbleed so don't worry
13:07<mentor>Eion: You may want to check the DSA for heartbleed, and you should check you have all security updates installed
13:08-!-ml| [~ml|] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:08<Eion>Spidernet: My installation is actually old enough not to have been affected by Heartbleed, but that is not particularly flattering security wise.
13:08<mentor>Eion: So, it's just been affected by all the other security issues then?
13:08<Spidernet>Eion: alright.. but do a distro upgrade and be free
13:10<Fylar>Recently Debian has been releasing a lot of OpenSSL updates.
13:11-!-johanmlg_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:11<mentor>I would expect more to come, as the OpenBSD OpenSSL rage cleanup continues
13:11<Eion>I have wanted to update for a while, so perhaps I can take advantage of today to do so. I feel a bit silly for asking this, but what is the command for upgrading/installing the archive signing keys.
13:12<Fylar>apt-get update gpg
13:12<mentor>The archived signing keys are contained in the package debian-archive-keyring
13:12<Fylar>oh. right
13:13<Fylar>That makes it apt-get update debian-archive-keyring
13:13<Spidernet>Eion: dats ryt.. u can install by " apt-get install debian-archive-keyring"
13:13<mentor>Possibly if you've got to the point that you need to manually update debian-archive-keyring, you may need to do out of band verifiaction
13:13<Spidernet>Eion: pls do " apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade "
13:14<Eion>mentor: That's the level I'm at, but I should be able to download the keys from and verify it from there, right?

14:32<raku>i can set myself as root or do su -c "command here"
14:32<somiaj>well then run 'su -' and become root before running that command
14:32<Spidernet>ruku: use sudo su
14:32<mentor>sudo -i opens a login shell
14:32<raku>ya thats what i usually do is go root
14:32<mentor>sudo su is silly
14:32<raku>i just wanted to make sure nothing was broken
14:32<raku>i dont have sudo
14:33<mentor>Use su (and then install sudo)
14:33<raku>i dont need sudo
14:33<raku>i can just do su
14:33<raku>then run commands as root
14:33<raku>or just su -c "command here"
14:33<Spidernet>ruku: ok then use su
14:34<rol_and>my system keeps booting into initramfs . any advice on how to troubleshoot the issue ?

14:37<awal>rakuraku, Open another tty and log as normal user after that lognin as root using su + root pass and then run 'shutdown -h now' for halt your machine or 'shutdown -r now' for reboot
14:37<ekiwok>raku, run sudo shutdown
14:37-!-supc [~smuxi@] has joined #debian
14:38<raku>su -c "shutdown -h now" did the job
14:38<ekiwok>you can also add this command to sudoers
14:38<somiaj>sudo is not a required package of any sort, no need to say it is the way to do things. On a single user machine sudo just adds another account with root privlages giving more ways to break into the machine.
14:38<ekiwok>for your user
14:38<somiaj>raku: yea the default for shutdown is to 'powerdown' not 'halt' which are different as you see

15:42<somiaj>jacksparrow: there are various ways, you could say install it in a usb drive like any other drive and it will work, but usb is slow and isn't really made for all the read/writes a debian install would need
15:42<jacksparrow>what is my other alternative
15:42<somiaj>jacksparrow: the other method is to use a live image (such as and set up persistance, this way you aren't really running of the usb but running off of the memeory on the system
15:43<snowcone>is there an easy way to change the packages loaded in a 'live' USB?
15:43-!-brawson [] has joined #debian
15:43<somiaj>snowcone: provides a frame work to make your own custom live images
15:43<snowcone>ty :)
15:43<somiaj>but for a certain live image, you will have to manually install/remove any packages on it
15:43<somiaj>each time you boot from it
15:43<snowcone>yeah, that's fine
15:44<jacksparrow>will this require my computer harddrive in anyway
15:44<somiaj>jacksparrow: nope
15:44<jacksparrow>my comp cant recognise my drive
15:44<jacksparrow>and this will run like a normal server
15:45<somiaj>jacksparrow: there are some things you most likely have to watch out, but over all yes. I would suggest going the live route, but this will be a lot harder to setup
15:45<jacksparrow>ok no prob
15:45-!-fiasko [] has joined #debian

22:05<abrotman>yes, that's called flooding, don't do it
22:05<dpkg>Do not paste more than 2 lines to this channel. Instead, use: or for pics. Use for large files (think tar.gz) up to 100MB. Remember to tell us the URL of your paste! Cannot cut and paste? Ask me about <pastebinit>, <nopaste>, <wgetpaste>.
22:05<sydney>says the package I need can not be found
22:06<sydney>isnt flooding generally malicious in intent?
22:06<sney>!non-free sources
22:06<dpkg>Edit /etc/apt/sources.list, ensure that the two main Debian mirror lines end with "main contrib non-free" rather than just "main", then «aptitude update». But bear in mind that you'll be installing <non-free> software. These may have onerous terms; check the licenses. See also <sources.list>.

There are 620 some odd people in here and 1 or 2 people talking yet it kicks me twice for simply pasting a few lines of code, does any of this make sense or seem "logical"?

23:03<sydney>I posted a pastebin above of my sources.list
23:03<centrx>sydney, 620 clients, of which some have no people present right now, some who are present but do not know anything about it, others who are busy at their computers, etc.
23:03<centrx>sydney, Use pastebin, etc to avoid being auto-kicked by the bot for pasting too much

23:04<sydney>yes I realize that now the first 2 times were a mistake, first time i didnt know 2nd time i copied 1 line and when I pasted into chat it became 6 lines

23:10<Arrowmaster>what you should have done is just added "contrib non-free" after the word "main" anywhere you saw it instead of removing anything
23:11<sydney>ok ty I was following what i understood to be the instructions
