01:42<jos>Hi, when I install Ubuntu startx works fine. The Intel Corporation haswell-ult integrated graphics controller (rev 09) chipset is using i915 which I can see using lspci -VVVnn
01:42<jos>however when I installed debian this is no the case
01:42<jos>and startx returns no screens detected
01:43<jos>how can I configure it to use the i915 driver in debian wheezy
01:44<ncl>Xorg -configure, as root, then try
01:44<ncl>There should be `Load "intel"' in the Module section of the config
01:45<jos>Is that the same as running X -cofigure? Because i've tried that and it doesn't work
01:45<jos>Oh can I type load intel afterwards?
01:45<somiaj>jos: you shouldn't need to configure xorg to detect an intel card, could it be you just need a newer kernel than 3.2 in wheezy for your paticular card?
01:46<jos>possibly? I'm a complete noob with Linux so how would this be possible?
01:46<jos>To upgrade kernel?

01:47-!-kroogs [] has quit [Quit: WeeChat 0.4.3]
01:47<musca>!bdo kernel
01:47<dpkg>Newer kernels for Debian stable releases are available from the "wheezy-backports" repository. Ask me about <wheezy-backports> to modify your sources.list, then run «aptitude update». To install the current backported kernel: «aptitude -t wheezy-backports install linux-image-`uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,'`». To list available backported kernel image packages: «aptitude search '?narrow(~nlinux-image,?origin(Debian Backports))'».
01:47-!-kroogs [~kroogs@] has joined #debian
01:48<somiaj>jos: yes follow what dpkg did and get a newer kernel from wheezy-backports
01:48<jos>Ok, thankyou. I'll have to go reinstall debian and try that. Will take me a bit though
01:49<musca>jos: feel free to ask for more details
01:49<jos>Thankyou, It will probably take about half an hour to install
01:50-!-lepalom [] has joined #debian
01:50<jos>Its just weird the GUI can work while installing from USB but once its installed "no screens detected"
01:51<jm_>jos needs optimus config
01:51<jm_>he has been told about it yesterday
01:51<somiaj>jos: the gui installer really isn't running xorg.
01:52<somiaj>jos: and sounds like you need to listen to jm_, guess you have more than a intel card there, but if it optimus a newer kernel is a good first step
01:52<jos>Ah that would explain it. And jm_ I spent ages last night trying to get optimus working and it just won't
01:53-!-warhead [~kvirc@] has joined #debian
01:53<dpkg>The Bumblebee project aims to provide support for the Nvidia Optimus GPU switching technology on Linux systems. GeForce 400M (4xxM) and later mobile GPU series are Optimus-enabled; if «lspci -nn | grep '\''[030[02]\]'» returns two lines, the laptop likely uses Optimus. Packaged for Debian in <testing> and <wheezy-backports>. #bumblebee on
01:53<jm_>so where do you get stuck?
01:53-!-vrkalak [~vrkalak@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:54<jos>I've enabled wheezy-backports in sources.list and installed bumblebe-nvidia and one other package?
01:54<jos>How do I configure it?

01:54-!-pitelpan [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:54-!-pitelpan_ is now known as pitelpan
01:54<jos>other package was primus
01:56<jm_>you need to follow the steps from the wiki
01:56<jos>the one?
01:57<jm_>also read this important note: Note wheezy-backports does not contain the newer xserver-xorg-video-intel package that is needed by newer intel cards. If you find yourself stuck with the fbdev or vesa driver then you'll need to upgrade to jessie or sid.
01:57<jm_>I'm pretty sure haswell qualifies for this

01:58-!-bdog7 [~bdog7@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:58<jos>Debian 7.5 Is wheezy isn't it?
01:59<jos>Oh wait I understand the version system now
01:59<planetmaker>yes, 7.5 is wheezy
01:59<planetmaker>jessie is testing and sid is unstable
02:00-!-debsan_ [] has joined #debian
02:01<jos>Yea I just figured that out and feel like a complete idiot now. Will reinstall Wheezy, upgrade to sid then upgrade kernel
02:01<jos>Then will try install bumblebee and get that working
02:01<jm_>maybe try testing instead of sid
02:01<jm_>and you don't need to reinstall you can simply upgrade it
02:02-!-smulverine [] has joined #debian
02:03<jos>Ok, do you think Sid or Jessie will work better?
02:03<planetmaker>jos, try jessie first. sid is called 'unstable' for a reason. Only use it, if you know what you do and if you know how to resolve conflicts, deal with broken dependencies etc
02:04-!-Noskcaj [] has joined #debian
02:04<jos>ok thankyou
02:04<musca>jos: "bumblebe-nvidia" is for the nvidia-driver while "bumblebee" works with the free nouveau driver
02:05-!-rollcake [~rollcake@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:05<jos>Ah, that would explain issues I had last night

02:06-!-debsan [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

02:29<knives47z>hi, does anyone know how to examine the contents of a .z01 file? xarchiver doesn't seem to recognize it, and neither does ark. I'd like to see what's in the file before downloading the whole series of .z files and attempting to join them

02:33<themill>what does "file foo.z01" call it?
02:34<knives47z>it says "Zip multi-volume archive data, at least PKZIP v2.50 to extract"
02:34<themill>(compress used to make .Z files... no idea what a .z file is)
02:35<themill>I have a vague memory that the index of all files is in the last file of a split pkzip archive

02:37<knives47z>hmm.. so you're suggesting that I indeed need to download the whole series before getting an idea of what's in it?
02:38<themill>according to the manpage, unzip and zipinfo can't deal with multipart archives anyway (you have to concatenate them and then fix them and then work with them)
02:39<themill>You could see what zipinfo has to say about it. And if it doesn't like that, try the last in the series with zipinfo. I don't hold out much hope though

04:47<Stummi>the login prompt is displayed by the "login" command

05:24<jos>I've installed debian and upgraded to testing which for the GUI working (or atleast the login screen). Startx now works but closes immediately saying xinit lost connection to xserver. Also when I login using lightdm or gdm the gui works till I pretty enter at which point screen flashes black and I am returned to login screen
05:24<jos>*got the GUI working

05:34-!-artista_frustrado [] has joined #debian
05:35<SynrG>check the timestamp to make sure it actually belongs to the session you're testing
05:35<jos>Hmm ok it looks like an openssl version mismatch error? will try removing and reinstalling openssl
05:35<SynrG>just beware that session logs can be full of all kinds of irrelevant junk from apps that are a bit too chatty spewing warnings
05:36<SynrG>so it can be difficult to see the messages that are really relevant
05:36<jos>Ok, Openssl is the only error in there so will see what happens after that is reinstaleld
05:36<SynrG>what's the history of this system? fresh install? old install recently upgraded? something else?

05:37<jos>Fresh install, have tried getting debian to work on this laptop for a while
05:37<SynrG>ah. i just read a bit of the backlog.
05:38<SynrG>so, fresh wheezy install, upgraded to jessie? support really should be in #debian-next
05:38<jos>Yea I've just upgraded to jessie
05:38<jos>Do you want me to move channels?
05:40<SynrG>most of us are there (minus jm_, though ... but i'm not sure why you singled him out to address :)
05:40<jos>Oh just becaused he has been helping me since last night and was last person I talked to about the issue
05:40<jos>Not really used to IRC etiquette
05:43-!-tommie-lie [] has joined #debian
05:43<SynrG>it's preferable to handle testing/unstable support on #debian-next, and preferable to just address the channel (summing up the problem for us if it has been a long time since it was last dealt with)

05:59<jos>if no info is in ~/xsession-errors where else can I check?
05:59<jm_>what's your DM?
05:59<SynrG>maybe doesn't actually run the WM? or even the session? see x-window-manager and x-session-manager alternatives

05:59-!-Akronym [~Akronym@] has joined #debian

06:02<jm_>for gdm3 it's somewhere in ~, ~/.cache/gdm I think
06:03<jonadab>The dm is the thing that manages graphical login. You actually can use a GUI without one, but in that case you have to log in first then use a command to start the GUI.
06:03<jm_>and at least gdm should have an option which session to start
06:03<SynrG>if you missed that, you need to select your username first
06:04<SynrG>because most modern *dm's remember your preference
06:04<jonadab>I think all the major DMs have an option at login to choose which session. They usually default to "same one as last time".

06:08<SynrG>jos: um? just try some of the things we suggested before installing anything else
06:09<SynrG>otherwise, even if the last thing you tried works, we gain no understanding about what was wrong in the first place. and a learning opportunity is squandered.
06:09<jos>ok x-session-manager points to /usr/bin/xcfe4-session & x-window-manager points to /usr/bin/xfwm4
06:09<SynrG>so in lightdm, select your username
06:10-!-dselect [] has quit [Quit: ouch... that hurt]

06:10<jos>default Xsession is the default one though

06:33-!-oneveu [] has quit [Quit: oneveu]
06:33<SynrG>jos: examining this system, it is lightdm itself that changes where the session logs go, i.e. it doesn't use what would otherwise be xfce4-session's default
06:33<SynrG>i know it's running xfce4-session by looking at the output of ps
06:34<SynrG>also, the log contains evidence that it is (and is timestamped correctly, so i know it's for this session)
06:35<jos>Hmm xfce-sessin is not there when I run ps after logging in with lightDM. None of the logs in /var/log/lightdm seem relevant
06:35<jos>to xfce

06:42<jos>so it is trying to start xfce4
06:42<jos>a couple of lines down however it says stopping display server, no sessions require it
06:43<jm_>so as if the command exits, maybe try creating a dummy startxfce4 script to log stuff or run the real one via strace

06:46-!-Arrowmaster [] has joined #debian
06:46<SynrG>big picture: how did it get in this state? an easy install to jessie is:
06:47<SynrG>install wheezy base (no desktop selected)
06:47<SynrG>upgrade to jessie (base only)
06:47<SynrG>install what the installer would've installed for the desired desktop, i.e. task-xfce-desktop
06:47<SynrG>how close to that process were you?
06:48<jm_>as an alternative you could try creating ~/.xsession file
06:48<SynrG>the more things you try without understanding, the stranger your configuration could get ...
06:48<jm_>or maybe the problem is you already have one
06:48<jos>um installed wheezy with xfce, then modified sources.list for jessie, apt-get update, apt-get upgrade, reboot
06:48<jm_>but we don't know if it worked in wheezy I gues
06:48<jos>Time to reinstall?
06:49<jm_>wait, just upgrade, not dist-upgrade?

07:13<Hazed>I get a screen, I just can't do anything with it

07:14<Hazed>for some reason gnome puts the new monitor as an extended desktop or something
07:14<Hazed>I removed the file .config/monitors.xml(?)
07:14<SynrG>i see. so this is a second monitor, not a replacement for the original?

The repo is running an AWS us-east, and a remote guy working in Poland sees the issue much more than anyone else. Thanks for any help.

10:43<petn-randall>wkf: The exact error message would help to debug this issue.
10:44<wkf>sure petn-randall: E: GPG error: local Release: The following signatures were invalid: NODATA 1 NODATA 2
10:45<petn-randall>wkf: Literally "NODATA"?
10:45<wkf>that's the literal error message, I didn't change anything
10:46<themill>NODATA means there's no signature to be checked -- either the file isn't uploaded to the mirror properly or (more likely) something ate it between server and client
10:46<jm_>apt probably calls gpg binary right? so it might make sense to check if debugging shows how it calls it etc.
10:49<wkf>themill: it's probably on the mirror properly, since it works most of the time, so what could eat it? it's being served by nginx, which is itself behind an haproxy instance, so it could be a problem with either of those.

14:15<dpkg>Newer kernels for Debian stable releases are available from the "wheezy-backports" repository. Ask me about <wheezy-backports> to modify your sources.list, then run «aptitude update».

14:52<newbage1>babilen: I'm fine with installing the fglrx driver
14:52<babilen>newbage1: The problem is that you cannot really downgrade from the development release of Debian to the stable release again and I am also not particularly sure if you would be happy tracking that. Which is why I am pondering installing the fglrx driver.

15:25<SynrGy>i915 whuh? i thought we had radeon. is this dual?
15:25<babilen>Okay, guess a new xserver-xorg-video-intel version is needed for vga_switcheroo
15:25<babilen>SynrGy: It's dual, yeah
15:25<SynrGy>yeah, dual. oh joy.
15:26<newbage1>babilen: also, I think the reason we got blessed back to GRUB a minute ago was because it was a 'fresh' kernel install… this reboot went smothly straight into rEFInd

15:34<babilen>newbage1: Also try those kernel commnand line options first - you can edit it by hitting "e" in the grub menu on top of the kernel and boot with F10
15:34<newbage1>why can't I cd to etc/grub ?
15:34<babilen>newbage1: It should be /etc/grub.d - but what are you trying to do?

15:35<newbage1>babilen: this is extremely educational
15:36<retrospectacus>donofrio: no, there is no xorg.conf necessary to use radeon
15:36<babilen>newbage1: I wouldn't make those changes permanent (yet), but to simply add them manually during boot. That is done by editing the kernel command line as indicated earlier.

15:58<Hydrar>But worst case I'll have to dig out a old drive just to keep in for the bootloader
15:59<babilen>newbage1: I'd play with just doing that for one card at a time to see what the problem is. You can now continue with installing Xorg and a desktop environment or window manager

16:42<newbage1>babilen: because the formatting seems different in the 0-fglrx.conf file

16:43<retrospectacus>Neal: then the build-dep command for texinfo, then the -b source texinfo, that should run a while and produce some texinfo.deb file.
16:43<newbage1>babilen: got it
16:43<babilen>newbage1: The echo command just creates that in one command .. but you can use nano to do it and if you had "-e" in there before something went wrong.

17:47-!-NightMonkey [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:48<babilen>newbage1: Once you've tinkered with vga switcheroo you might want to use the discrete graphic (i.e. the ati card with fglrx) -- that might draw more energy, but the intel card might be pesky due to lack of modesetting. But then try variations. fglrx cannot start it this time as it is not the right one for the "intel" card. (well, obviously) and it wants to manage that due to the fact that you haven't switched it yet.
17:49<babilen>newbage1: So, does "ls -l /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch" return a file listing?

17:54<newbage1>I haven't followed completely… how do I know which card is running my graphics?
17:54<babilen>newbage1: Moving the configuration file out of the way should have accomplished that. (I guess that that fails because you don't have modesetting for your intel card)
17:54<babilen>newbage1: Well, there are various bits to this.
17:55-!-swirl_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:55<babilen>newbage1: The configuration file tells Xorg to use the "fglrx" driver for your graphic card. That would work if the ATI card is being "switched on", but obviously fails if it is not (i.e. if the intel GPU is being tried to be used with the fglrx driver)

17:57-!-Airwave [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:57<newbage1>this is weird...
17:57<babilen>newbage1: As you cannot boot without turning off modesetting the intel card is a bit out of the question (unless a newer Xorg version changes that, the aforementioned upgrade to testing (/msg dpkg wheezy->jessie))
17:57-!-REalm [] has joined #debian
17:58<newbage1>so, switcheroo is really my only option
17:58<babilen>newbage1: So, what I would investigate now is if you can get the "vgaswitcheroo" part working and check if turning off the intel card and using only the ati one works out.
17:58-!-tcurtis [] has joined #debian
17:58<newbage1>babilen: I'll start reading
17:58<babilen>Well, you have switchable graphics, there is no way around that. I quite intentionally did not buy switchable graphics, so I lack knowledge in that area unfortunately and would also be more familiar with Optimus than vgaswitcheroo.
17:59-!-NightMonkey [] has joined #debian

18:02<babilen>newbage1: Well, upgrade to jessie and see if that sorts you out. jessie is the current development branch of Debian and will, eventually, become the new stable release. Unfortunately that means that running that involves some knowledge of the packaging system, but it would be interesting to see if the xserver-xorg-video-intel version in there copes better with your graphic chip.
18:02<newbage1>babilen: so, the modeset=0 is a kernel setting and not for the card?
18:02-!-neeqs [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
18:03<babilen>newbage1: "modeset" is a configuration parameter for a kernel module (think of it as a "driver") and is being passed on the kernel command line. (the kernel allows you to pass options that way)

18:03<donofrio>jessie for powerpc too?

20:20<oldlaptop>newbage1: traditional unix email works a little different from Outlook Express
20:21<oldlaptop>debian (and most other unix) systes have, by default, a traditional mail system running to take care of system messages
20:22<The_Ben24>Could someone please tell me what video recording software would be good for webcams?
20:22<abrotman>why would anyone compare that to OE?
20:22<abrotman>The_Ben24: Cheese is one
20:22-!-trendynick [~trendynic@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:22<The_Ben24>Is Cheese for video or just pictures?
20:22<abrotman>Look at the description, you tell us
20:23<oldlaptop>abrotman: more broadly (and so technically newbage1 won't understand), the "modern" MUA/MTA combination thingies (thunderbird, etc)
20:23<oldlaptop>webmail, etc
20:23<jonadab>I have never been able to figure out why anyone ever thought it was a good idea for every (Unix-style) computer to have an MTA installed, let alone running all the time.
20:23<abrotman>oldlaptop: I don't know how you think OE would make it easier to understand ..
20:23<oldlaptop>jonadab: for system messages
20:23<oldlaptop>Some important stuff gets mailed to root
20:23<jonadab>That's what log files are for.
20:23-!-gyx [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:23<The_Ben24>abrotman, "aptitude show cheese" mentions only still frames.
20:24<abrotman>jonadab: Assuming you read log files (or mail for that matter)
20:24<The_Ben24>abrotman, Oops., my bad. Disregard that.
20:24<The_Ben24>abrotman, Thank you so much!
20:24<jonadab>abrotman: Well, yes, whatever system you use, the admin has to actually look at it occasionally, or it's pointless.
20:25<themill>jonadab: logfiles are pretty sucky for anything that's not a single line message
20:25<jonadab>But having an MTA running all the time just to handle that is, to my way of thinking, inexcusable.
20:25<themill>who says you have an MTA running all the time (and so what if it is anyway?)
20:25<jonadab>themill: Messages in a logfile don't have to be a single line. They often are, but that's just a convention.
20:26<themill>and they suck when they're multiline
20:26<jonadab>themill: Debian by default has Exim running all the time, if you don't chmod -x it.
20:26<themill>umm.... that's boneheaded
20:26<jonadab>Yes, yes, it is.
20:27-!-mode/#debian [+l 672] by debhelper
20:27<abrotman>eh, does cron.log even record when a cron job goes bad?
20:27<themill>the chmod
20:27<abrotman>jonadab: What's the problem with it running? You can't spare the 5MB of RAM?
20:27<themill>jonadab: if you don't want exim running then disable it sanely. Or replace it with something that delivers only on demand.
20:27<abrotman>or alias root to nobody :)
20:28<jonadab>abrotman: Fundamental principle of security: don't run services that aren't needed.
20:28<abrotman>jonadab: you do realize it doesn't listen outside of localhost, right ?
20:28<themill>what's your threat model for an MTA running again?
20:28-!-Brigo [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:28<jonadab>abrotman: Yes, that's true, and mitigates the issue somewhat.
20:28<jonadab>There's also the fact that it adds about 40 seconds to system start time, but that's minor.
20:28-!-ixti [~ixti@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:28<jonadab>I guess I'm just being picky, mostly.
20:29<abrotman>it shuldn't add 40 seconds .. sounds like your system is misconfigured
20:29<jonadab>But there's absolutely no reason for it to be running.
20:29<themill>given that my entire boot takes 4s...
20:29-!-FakeBoost [~lancelot@] has joined #debian
20:29<jonadab>abrotman: Every Debian system I've ever had, Exim takes a long time at system start. Always.
20:29<abrotman>jonadab: You've done something wrong
20:29<abrotman>well, given this conversation, many things wrong :)
20:29<themill>you could always use something other than exim too.
20:29<jonadab>I haven't *done* anything at all with regard to Exim, to cause that. (When I chmod -x it, that solves the problem.)
20:30<themill>I wouldn't use the word "solve" there
20:30<abrotman>jonadab: Yes, you have done something wrong. I have many systems with exim as the default MTA, none of them are delayed because of Exim
20:30<jonadab>I never configure Exim, because it's a service I neither need nor want. I'd uninstall it, if apt would let me, without uninstalling other things.
20:30<retrospectacus>see <exim boot stall>
20:30<FakeBoost>Hello, I need a LXDE ready, non-pae , no internet connection Wheezy, does anybody have a link to download?
20:30<abrotman>FakeBoost: there's a link on the CD download page

20:31-!-NightMonkey [] has quit [Quit: Body blow! Body blow!]
20:32<jonadab>Not *mis*configured, just *un*configured. I shouldn't need to configure an MTA on a computer that isn't a mail server.
20:32<themill>the time to fix this is about the same as the time to chmod -x and less than the time you've spent complaining about it
20:32-!-zykotick9 [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
20:33<jonadab>The bot's info for <exim boot stall> suggests the problem is that the network isn't up, but if that's so, it's because something I didn't customize is running startup things in very much the wrong order.
20:33<themill>(I'm rather hoping that systemd journal will be able to replace the mta on most of my machines)
20:33<FakeBoost>, i already knew that page, I need help finding that specific iso
20:33<jonadab>FakeBoost: The one that doesn't say netinstall, presumably.
20:34<FakeBoost>ok, nothing exact
20:35<FakeBoost>none of those say non-pae , themill
20:35<FakeBoost>or lxde
20:35<themill>they don't need to
20:35<FakeBoost>are they lxde?
20:36<themill>no, I'm just giving you links to random shit you didn't want....
20:36<themill>dpkg: tell FakeBoost about install lxde
20:37-!-tuxampol [] has joined #debian
20:39<jmcnaught>jonadab: instead of your chmod -x trick, you could simply install another package that provides the mail-transport-agent virtual package. For a while I've been using msmtp-mta for machines that aren't mail servers (it's a null mailer) but lately I've been switching to using postfix configured as a nullmailer instead (mstmp-mta doesn't do date headers)

20:48-!-q66 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
20:50<test123123>i would search google for this but I am not sure how to search. I am wanting to limit storage capacity of a certain folder by having it delete oldest files out of the directory once it reaches a certain percentage. is there any easy way of doing this on my debian server?
20:50-!-InvadeD [] has joined #debian
20:50<jonadab>Basically like a tmp directory?
20:50<abrotman>percentage of what?
20:50<test123123>percentage of said storage capacity for folder
20:51<abrotman>test123123: you mean a percentage of the total partitoin?
20:51<abrotman>or the partition a certain percent full?
20:51<test123123>specific to folder, not partition.
20:51<test123123>i know folders have no limit's i want to add one though
20:52<abrotman>test123123: so you want to delete the oldest files when the directory is a certain percent of the directory?
20:52<retrospectacus>you'd make a script and run it with cron. I don't know of a existing tool to do that
20:52<test123123>or any other way but that's what i'm wanting to do
20:52<jonadab>He wants to delete the oldest files in e.g. /tmp when the contents of /tmp add up to a certain percentage of some absolute limit he wants to place on its size.
20:52<abrotman>sounds pretty specialized .. I'd be writing a script
20:52<test123123>i have a folder that has automated files
20:53<test123123>and i just want to keep it from filling up the hdd
20:53-!-tuxampol [] has quit [Quit: Verlassend]
20:53<jonadab>And yeah, I'd write a Perl script that calls du -h -s /path/to/whatever to check whether it's hitting the limit, and if so deletes the oldest file. Put that on a cron job and Bob is your uncle.
20:54<jonadab>Actually, I might take the -h out of that, to make the parsing regex simpler.

20:56<jonadab>Something like that. The ... part still needs to be written, to delete the oldest file.

20:58<test123123>i will save it as it's half my puzzle. thank you :)
20:59<jonadab>Wait, actually, that should be if ($1 > $somelimit) (greater than, not less than)

23:08<newbage1>somiaj: let's go with /etc/network/interfaces for now
23:08<newbage1>somiaj: I've done all the comman line steps here:
23:08<somiaj>newbage1: what desktop did you install?
23:08<newbage1>but this is on another machine
23:08<somiaj>newbage1: oh you awnt to use wicd (which is another version of network manager). Lets just get network manager working for you (or would you prefer wicd -- nm is default in gnome)
23:09-!-Airwave [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:09<newbage1>somiaj: for simplicity, let's stick with the command line for now
23:09<somiaj>newbage1: but what I suggest doing is looking in /etc/network/interfaces and if you have any lines that relate to your network devices (besides say lo) comment them out
23:09<newbage1>(I'm actually configuring 2 machines)
23:09<somiaj>newbage1: cli is a bit more complicated than just allowing the gui to configure it
23:10<newbage1>somiaj: so, that guide is deceptively oversimplistic?
23:10<newbage1>…becuase it hasn't worked yet
23:10<newbage1>…that guide
23:11<somiaj>newbage1: what you linked was to use wicd. You need to pick a method and stick with it, I'd suggest network-manager since it is the default in gnome
23:11-!-gjerich [] has quit []
23:11<somiaj>and it links with the gnome tools to configure it
23:12<somiaj>it could be you have both network-manager and wicd running and you don't want two programs manging the same interface
23:12<newbage1>somiaj: I'm configuring 2 machines. One has gnome. The other has the cli. If I can do the cli, I can configure both machines...
23:12<newbage1>I'll take help however I can get it though
23:13<somiaj>then follow the instructions for using it from teh cli, and disable network manager
23:14<somiaj>newbage1: also the wireless-essid and wirelss-mode is for wep, most likey (and you should be) using WPA, in that case you want to use 'wpa-ssid' and 'wpa-psk' for the ssid and the password for the wireless network

23:19<somiaj>newbage1: yea I need to do two things 1) make sure your config file doesn't have any noticable errors, 2) disable network-manager and/or wicd
23:20<jmcnaught>network-manager ignores interfaces defined in /etc/network/interfaces, not sure about wicd though
23:21<somiaj>yea but that is only if it starts and if it is running and think it should configure it, I find it best to just disable it
23:21-!-damian_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:22<somiaj>just one less thing that could get in the way (:

23:27<retrospectacus>also you should have a loopback, where did it go?
23:27<somiaj>you should also add an 'auto lo' and 'iface lo inet loopback' lines because if you aren't going to use network-manager you will need to bring up your loopback device

23:29<jlund>somiaj, It definitely appears to be a problem with the image. This is the official Debian AMI. It hangs at 'Connecting to'
23:30<jlund>Or a problem with the Cloudfront endpoint it is trying to hit.
23:30<newbage1>somiaj: ok, I've added those… while I pastebin one more time for confirmation, what should I do next
