00:02<nyov>themill: the version number is 20130613+deb7u2.b1, doesn't look very recent to me
00:03<nyov>well the installer components download alright, but the base system install fails, with debootstrap complaining about an unknown Release key (signed in april)
00:03<themill>it was uploaded 5 weeks ago.
00:04<nyov>so I should do a force-reinstall of the packages maybe?
00:04<themill>The #debian-boot people would know more.
00:05<nyov>okay, thanks
00:09<nyov>uhm, I think I served an old installer from tftp
00:11<nyov>yep. /usr/lib/debian-installer/images/<arch>/ instead of /usr/lib/debian-installer/images/7.0/<arch>. my bad

00:59<cesurasean>during the install, netinstall.
00:59<cesurasean>it seems to use DHCP fine, but it won't connect to any mirrors.
01:00<sney>name resolution errors on the console?
01:00<cesurasean>what do you mean?
01:00<cesurasean>it just won't connect to the mirrors.
01:00<cesurasean>the DHCP succeeds though.
01:01<dondelelcaro>cesurasean: the easiest thing to do is drop to a console and try to ping one of the mirrors
01:01<sney>alt-f4 in the installer gives you an info console.
01:01<cesurasean>how do i drop to a console?
01:01<dondelelcaro>cesurasean: ctrl+alt+f2 or similar

01:38<phillipsjk>Does think mean I have to disable unloading the ethernet driver on shut-down? "For this driver version, in order to enable WoL, the e100 driver must be loaded when shutting down or rebooting the system." (version does not match my kernel)

01:44<cesurasean>jmcnaught, i am using the same settings as any other computer on my network. ;P

01:48<phillipsjk>I used the Intel card because I was not sure my RTL1839-based card could take 5V WOL power (the connector does not fit).
01:49<phillipsjk>May be easier to trace circuitry on the RTL card :P
01:50<cesurasean>jmcnaught, nameserver, which is correct.
01:51<cesurasean>i changed it to, and it works now.
01:52<cesurasean>for some reason my router isn't dishing out DNS to it.

02:09<phillipsjk>the client or server?
02:10<LtL>cesurasean: apt-cache install openssh-server should install client and server
02:10<jmcnaught>cesurasean: that would be apt-get not apt-cache
02:10<cesurasean>no such package.
02:10<LtL>er yeah my mistake

02:11<dpkg>OpenSSH (OpenBSD Secure Shell, is a free implementation of the Secure Shell (<SSH>) protocol. Packaged for Debian as openssh-server and openssh-client (install the ssh <metapackage> for both). SSH protocol 1 is disabled by default as of openssh 1:5.4p1-1. "Getting started with SSH":
02:12<cesurasean>apt-get install ssh, openssh, openssh-server, nothing is found.
02:12<cesurasean>what is the package's name?
02:12<LtL>cesurasean: apt-get install ssh is the meta-packager
02:12<cesurasean>nevermind, i had to run an update first.
02:13<cesurasean>apt-get update, then install ssh

03:18<jmcnaught>spippi: what files are still there? When you remove a package, it doesn't remove the files created by the using software provided by that package.
03:19<spippi>i have remove a program clamav with "sudo apt-get purge clamav" after "sudo apt-get autoremove" and "sudo apt-get autoclean", but i havetoo file in system of clamav
03:19<spippi>scuse me
03:19<spippi>for example i have file in usr/local/etc/
03:20<spippi>or in usr/local/bin/
03:20<spippi>but i don't know if there are other file in other position
03:22<jmcnaught>spippi: debian packages created files in /usr/local? The files that were installed by the clamav package would be removed when you remove clamav. But if clamav itself created files while it was being used, those would not be removed.
03:22-!-towo` [] has joined #debian
03:24<spippi>it's probaly that i have remove program when it's run
03:24<spippi>what's i do now
03:25<jmcnaught>spippi: after installing clamav i have no files in /usr/local/bin or /usr/local/etc.. Did you possibly install something from source?
03:26<spippi>i download new version from clamav
03:26<spippi>i think for this
03:27-!-ghostly [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:27<jmcnaught>spippi: well that's the problem then... apt-get can only remove software that was installed with apt-get. If you download a tarball from some website and install it without using the Debian packaging system, then the packaging system has no way of knowing about it
03:28<jmcnaught>spippi: you should check the file you downloaded for documentation on removing it, or the website you downloaded it from
03:28<spippi>ok thanks but there is a solution for clean all system from all program that i have remove?
03:29<jmcnaught>spippi: not really. if you want it to work that way, only install software using APT
03:30<spippi>ok for the next time i use always syna, but i have 2 question.
03:31<spippi>the first there is a program for check all system the orphan file?
03:31<spippi>second if i download a tar file how do i do for install
03:32-!-Blue_Hat [~TwinKam20@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]

03:46-!-user7289 [] has quit []
03:46<jmcnaught>spippi: i just checked cruft out myself. It may take a while to complete. It makes a list of files that don't seem to belong to any debian packages. You have to review that list yourself. All it really does it help you track down files, you need to decide what to do with them yourself. It also seems to ignore /usr/local by default. On the system I just tested it also listed a bunch of files that *should* be there, so take its results with
03:47<jmcnaught>spippi: "zless /usr/share/doc/cruft/README.gz" and "man cruft" for the documentation
03:47-!-cooldude [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
03:49<spippi>ok finish i have more file how can i remove all
03:50<jmcnaught>spippi: read what i just typed above, and the cruft documentation. Not a good idea to just remove all the files that cruft lists
03:51-!-fae [] has joined #debian
03:51<spippi>i understand but what's other solution if i have problem i reinstall all system
03:52<spippi>i have a question for this

03:54<spippi>if i want download debian lxde offline version for reinstall without network it's possible, for example if i download live version can i use for install?

04:00-!-swirl [] has joined #debian
04:00<spippi>i don't understand i can remove the file that cruft have
04:04<jmcnaught>spippi: if you're not sure whether it's okay to remove a file, probably shouldn't remove it. You might need to do some research to figure out which files are safe to remove.
04:04<spippi>i understand
04:05<spippi>but for me i think it's better fast and sure reinstall all sytem at this time

04:14-!-pabs [] has left #debian [Don't rest until the streets are paved in poems.]
04:14<mirageASR>no i didn't
04:14<jmcnaught>mirageASR: you probably removed a meta-package that depends on those packages. You can "apt-get install" those packages and it will mark them as manually installed (and not suggest them for autoremove any more)

05:10<cesurasean>is there a way to fix a kernel panic?
05:10<cesurasean>if so, what is the first steps i would take?
05:10<cesurasean>i rsynced a copy of a server to another, and now it throws a panic.

05:12<cesurasean>ompaul, i rsynced an old server to a new one's /, and when i rebooted it, it's throwing a panic.

05:25<cesurasean>ompaul, there has to be an easier method than redoing a fresh server.
05:26<ompaul>cesurasean: no, because unbreaking will take more effort than a new install

05:27<ompaul>cesurasean: do the install, do the rsync and be sensible
05:28-!-mongrol [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:28<cesurasean>i had a fresh install, and did an rsync.
05:28<cesurasean>and it broke something for some odd reason.
05:28<cesurasean>how do i diagnose it?
05:29<ompaul>cesurasean: no, because unbreaking will take more effort than a new install
05:30<ompaul>cesurasean: you copied /proc and all sorts of stuff and who knows what when you restart it and it panics you got some corrupt data somewhere go figure
05:31<ompaul>cesurasean: so bite the bullet remember that a running machine has it's own integrity, and breaking that is an overhead called please fix me now by a clean install after you grab the data

05:32<ompaul>cesurasean: if you wanted to do what you are trying to do assuming the new hardware is supported by the kernel a dd of the disk in the server to the new one might work but again data should be separate as should /home and then you have a hope of being able to approach doing that stuff sanely
05:33<ompaul>cesurasean: I offer you the "you can't get there from here without many more hours work that you would have to do for a clean install and rsync the data again"

06:47<marcos>that is the problem, 10 yrs trying to meet in person, i'm in the seekers list as well.

06:49<devil>marcos: that should be fairly easy
06:49<marcos>i develop all the time
06:49<SynrG>sure. but that doesn't negate the need to meet in person
06:51<spippi>deb stable main contrib non-free this is correct?
06:51<SynrG>well, don't know why you're using ftp:
06:51<SynrG>http: is preferred. and also don't use the main address like that, but choose a mirror near you
06:52<SynrG>or else use the http redirector that chooses one for you:
06:52<SynrG>deb stable main contrib non-free
06:52<marcos>althought it is true i dont go to massive conventions, (i hate busy environments), i have tried to contact individuals by email without success, i'll look for events that i could reach anyway, do you know some popular ones?
06:52<devil>not in spain

07:15<dpkg>Some things you should back up include: /etc /home /root /usr/local /usr/src /opt /srv. Tailor to your own purposes. If you think you don't need /var, make sure you don't forget /var/lib/dpkg /var/lib/apt* /var/lib/mysql /var/mail /var/www /var/cache/debconf /var/spool/cron ...

08:02<SynrG>since i can't see what you're seeing, and your description is rather vague, my guesses about what it is are going to be poor :)
08:02<SynrG>the memory thing could be a bug, or could be hardware. dunno.
08:02<SynrG>certainly doing a memtest86+ is not unreasonable to try.
08:02<SynrG>(should be one of the 'advanced' boot options)
08:03<Cakenaut_>It won't let me type anything.

08:03<Cakenaut_>I should reboot?
08:03<SynrG>that's why i suggested rebooting it 'single'
08:03<SynrG>well, reboot to grub. find the 'memtest86+' thing ...
08:03<SynrG>choose it. let it run for a while.
08:03<SynrG>this could take a very long time if you run the whole scan, though.

08:04<SynrG>otherwise, you can probably get it to boot back to console just with 'recovery' boot option
08:04<Cakenaut_>Doing it now.
08:04<SynrG>then we can investigate your Xorg.0.log and proceed from there.
08:04<SynrG>but for now, until we find some link between the two, i do think we have two different issues.

09:03*oldlaptop doesn't remember memtest's interface well enough to draw a mental picture
09:04<oldlaptop>what do you have to do with that? :)
09:04<Cakenaut_>No it's just I can't think of a very good way to describe it.
09:04<oldlaptop>It might actually be able to see and test the cards individualy
09:04-!-symptom_ [~symptom@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
09:04<oldlaptop>I'd think it's more likely there's two errors in the same MB of RAM or something
09:05<oldlaptop>as I understand it all memtest (or any software) can address is one linear space
09:05<oldlaptop>i.e. memtest probably can't see the RAM sticks individually
09:05<oldlaptop>I could well be wrong though
09:05<Cakenaut_>You're probably right.
09:06<Cakenaut_>But I'm curious as to why the amount of available space is changing.
09:06<Cakenaut_>I should have 8gb total.
09:06<Cakenaut_>But it's changing from 7611 to 7675mb
09:07<Cakenaut_>I understand that it would never actually be precisely 8gb, but why the fluctuation?
09:08<oldlaptop>maaaaybe that has something to do with the defective RAM?
09:08<oldlaptop>I wouldn't think memtest would ever use that much RAM for itself...

09:11*oldlaptop looks at a memtest screenshot to refresh memory
09:12<SynrG>thing is, where there is *some* bad ram, there may be more to follow. so it's not a good long-term solution. may help as a workaround
09:12<oldlaptop>Cakenaut_: The '7611MB' and '7675MB' figures you refer to are the same places '1185.2MB' occurs here?
09:12<SynrG>i.e. either mem= or memmap= kernel params
09:13<oldlaptop>It looks to me (in the screenshot I linked) that there's two distinct locations right next to each other which are bad
09:13<oldlaptop>and memtest separately lists each test it got them to screw up with
09:13<oldlaptop>(the Tst column)
09:14<oldlaptop>where are you seeing available RAM fluctuate?

09:17<oldlaptop>alrhough those addresses aren't right next to each other
09:18<oldlaptop>I guess the way to go now is to test each stick individually if possible
09:19<oldlaptop>Maybe do what SynrG suggested earlier and tell the kernel to skip the bad bits as a temporary measure

10:42<Cakenaut_>If you mean me complaining. I'm not, just considering my options. Some peeps on here suggested I trying to use the kernal, which was what I was looking into.

11:14<bjb>I'm not very knowledgeable about java in general, maybe it's a simple thing?
11:14<unityself>ok again I completly reinstall debian with the minimal installation. Then I install the nvidia driver with After rebooting the text size is big then before and I cannot start any program thats needs OpenGL because the program "Cannot open display"

11:18<unityself>ok how can I run X?
11:18<bjb>Hmm. Unless the graphics program does not run under X, you need to run X
11:19<bjb>you need to install xserver-xorg (or maybe it's xorg-xserver) and some kind of window manager or even desktop.
11:19<bjb>example window manager, fluxbox. example desktop, kde
11:20<bjb>It's "xserver-xorg"
11:20<unityself>which desktop envirment is the lightest?
11:20-!-smulverine [] has quit [Quit: WeeChat 0.4.2]
11:21<bjb>First, I'm assuming you want to display the results of the graphics program on the same machine you are running it on, the one that doesn't have X Window System (yet)?
11:21<bjb>Re: "lightest", you don't want a "desktop" then
11:21<bjb>I'm not sure which window manager is the lightest - there are xfce, fluxbox, and some others. I'm currently using fluxbox
11:21<bjb>It's pretty light
11:22<bjb>There's twm. Not sure if it still exists but if it does it's very lightweight
11:23<bjb>Yep, it's still there (as of wheezy)

11:24<unityself>to the first yes
11:25<bjb>unityself, probably twm will be good for you. I don't think it has any "panel" and it is certainly not a "desktop"

13:07<c_gone>you're missing too much software probably unityself
13:07<sney>it sounds like you just have xorg and nothing else, and that's really a crappy user interface on its own
13:07<unityself>c_gone: I dont want adesktop envirment I just want to start two applications
13:08<c_gone>ok, which?
13:08<sney>if you want to go super old school minimal, try 'apt-get install wmaker'
13:08<c_gone>you can always search with apt-cache search (package)
13:08-!-f3y3n00rd [] has joined #debian
13:08<c_gone>then apt-get install (package)
13:08<unityself>steam-login( or steam by itselfs and xbmc
13:09<sney>and once you have a window manager like wmaker installed, you can launch other stuff from a menu and fullscreen it if it can do that and so on
13:09<nyov>you guys are all missing the point. unityself wants to run opengl "windows" on a tty
13:09<somiaj>you can put the applications you want to start in .xsession and not need a window manager, (:
13:09<c_gone>I got it that's why I stopped typing
13:09<unityself>somiaj: where is .xsession?
13:10<unityself>c_gone: ok
13:10<c_gone>use locate, or whereis to look for files easily
13:11<c_gone>steam is on debian repositories...

13:11<c_gone>doesn't work on legacy nvidia cards before 304.xx
13:12<somiaj>unityself: it is in $HOME/.xsession (that is the debian prefered method, and startx will honor it. If you don't use the startx wrapper but xinit directally you may want .xinitrc (note .xinitrc will not work with display managers but it sounds like that isn't an issue)
13:13<somiaj>c_gone: since this is a debian stable support channel, steam is not in wheezy repos. (:
13:14<c_gone>forgot, I had installed it and then purged it since I got an old legacy card

13:15<somiaj>yea steam is in jessie (and sid) but the closed source binary last I saw was compiled against glibc newer than is in wheezy and you can't even backport it to wheezy

13:16<somiaj>unityself: correct, those are configuration files for additional commands to run when you run x
13:16<c_gone>somiaj, I used the wiki, and right after installing steam I removed testing repo and it worked...
13:16<c_gone>I don't even use that on sid...
13:17-!-phillipsjk [] has joined #debian
13:17<oldlaptop>unityself: You should not run 'X' alone
13:17<somiaj>c_gone: so you mixed wheezy and jessie, that is very very bad juju and you now have an unsupported system which may have unforseen bugs.
13:17<nyov>unityself: no idea if this works with xbmc, but I'm using nodm for a linux pvr. maybe that's what you want?
13:17<oldlaptop>that just starts the X server, which as you now know is useless on its own
13:18<somiaj>oldlaptop: it can be done, I use to run an xterm from my .xinitrc and then launch things from there, though without a wm it has limitations
13:18<nyov>it's enough, if one only wants to run a single "window", such as xbmc?
13:18-!-pkv [] has joined #debian
13:18<oldlaptop>somiaj: xinitrc doesn't get executed if you run the X server directly, IIRC
13:19<unityself>how can I run X server with .xinitrc
13:19<oldlaptop>'xinitrc', not 'xrc'
13:19<oldlaptop>unityself: startx
13:19<c_gone>I didn't somiaj system works fine, and after installing steam all repos are stable
13:19<unityself>and again there is no command startx
13:19<sney>gotta install xinit then
13:19<oldlaptop>which means you don't have a full X installation
13:20-!-neo16911 [~neo1691@] has joined #debian
13:20<somiaj>c_gone: it may work fine and then one day the fact you have core libaries not in wheezy certain thigns may not be installable or work. We do not support mixing of debian versions. Many times I see people with really broken systems from doing just what you did. If it works for you good, don't suggest it here, and your system is not supported.
13:20<unityself>sney: now it works
13:20-!-jtw4643 [] has joined #debian
13:20<oldlaptop>unityself: you should install the 'xorg' package
13:21<oldlaptop>That will give you a minimal (but fully working) X installation (though you might have enough pieces already)
13:21<somiaj>oldlaptop: what do you mean by run the xserver directally? To me that means run xinit which uses .xinitrc
13:21<oldlaptop>somiaj: unityself was running X

13:22<somiaj>you were already suggested you could install a window manager, but yes you can run without one if you like. There are also lots of vary minimial window managers you can choose in debian
13:22<oldlaptop>unityself: you probably need to ask the XBMC people, they no doubt have an IRC channel somwhere

13:29-!-glebihan [] has joined #debian
13:30<somiaj>unityself: so you want to rebuild some functionality of a wm, just grab one that has the functinlaity you need already, xlib requires a bit of work
13:31<somiaj>things like openbox, ratposoins or if you want to go original twm are very minimial and might give you everything you need
13:31<somiaj>you can turn off window decorations in many wms if you don't want them too
13:31<unityself>I only want that if xbmc is closing to start steam and if steam is closing to start xmbc
13:32<c_gone>somiaj, of course libc6 was from jessie, nothing more or steam wouldn't play, thought you knew that... If steam supported legacy cards I might be using it as well. Can I give you a dollar to stop bugging me about it? I've been using debian since woody...
13:32<nyov>exactly! who needs X. shell job controls ftw! ansi line output all the way
13:32<somiaj>c_gone: then you do not have a stable install. end of story
13:32-!-NTSS [] has joined #debian
13:32<c_gone>If libc6 from jessie was that harmfull, I would have removed it and get the stable version again. so friggin what
13:33<somiaj>unityself: you don't seem to know enough right now about how thigns work to pull this off. Grab a minimial window manager (each here may have a different choice to you), get it to work like you want. As you begin to understand what the WM is doing you can try to reimplmenet some of that functionality yourself.
13:34<c_gone>I agree with somiaj unityself
13:34<somiaj>c_gone: you are failing to grasp what debian stable is. Again people do mix, but it is not support and it is not stable. And I have seen many people who mix completely break their system.

15:03<jmcnaught>Hi folks. I just made a new page on the wiki with advice on how not to break a Debian system based on my experience helping here on IRC. I couldn't find an equivalent page, so i hope it's cool that I made a new one. feedback and edits welcome! :)
15:04-!-m42 [] has joined #debian
15:05<oldlaptop>jmcnaught: How are those things sorted? Prevalance of the problem? Not sorted in particular?
15:06<jmcnaught>oldlaptop: mostly by prevalence of problem. I was also trying to keep the list short enough that new users might actually read the whole thing
15:07-!-andy_ [] has joined #debian
15:08<oldlaptop>that's possibly the most important stylistic consideration there is ;)

15:09-!-mtn [] has joined #debian
15:09<oldlaptop>I would almost put the dangers of 'make install' above that, personally
15:09<oldlaptop>but frankendebian breaks systems far more reliably than that
15:11<sney>and frankendebian is far easier to do accidentally
15:11<sney>what with hundreds of well-intentioned blog posts advising it
15:11<jmcnaught>we were talking about the top 10 ways to break debian in #debian-offtopic on freenode last night and the general consensus was frankendebian should be #1
15:13<oldlaptop>sney: *really*
15:13<oldlaptop>I wonder how many of these bloggers wonder why their systems break every other month
15:14<sney>jmcnaught: may want to add to the "don't blindly follow bad advice" that blog posts don't expire so it's easy to google up something that was perfectly reliable and safe... in 2011

16:18<user__>oldlaptop so what you are saying that the .set in the user /home and the root /home dir's wouldnt have had anything to do with the system wide set right ?
16:18<oldlaptop>It sure shouldn't
16:18<oldlaptop>this sounds like a completely different thing than 'set' the bash builtin
16:19<user__>ncl ok i dont know what all he did and second i would feel better about it all the way around.

16:23<phillipsjk>Niether of you should be using root for day-to-day use anyway.
16:23<jmcnaught>user__: if you know where it's from it might help you assess how dangerous it was. I'd probably reinstall at this point though, and probably not even give the roommate a regular user account at least until they earn your trust again
16:24<user__>phillipsjk i normaly never use root unless it is a half to case. and as fare as root he shouldnt have ever had the root password and the only person other than me that has the password is my girlfriend and she is who he had to get it from

16:25<freelinux>Why, though? why does it matter if you share the root password or use the root account if you have nothing that you want to keep private?
16:26<oldlaptop>freelinux: obviously different people have different needs with it
16:26<user__>freelinux if someone get's into your root account they will have total control over your computer
16:26<oldlaptop>And of course physical access is root access anyway
16:26<user__>not just localy but by remote use as well
16:26<oldlaptop>that's a consideration in some cases too
16:26<phillipsjk>Actually, you can simply change the root pasword by booting into single-suer mode and ruuning passwd after mounting the filesystem as read/write.
16:26<oldlaptop>hopefully you don't run sshd unless you need it (and disable root logons)
16:27-!-mode/#debian [+l 701] by debhelper
16:27<oldlaptop>phillipsjk: I think debian asks for root still
16:27<user__>oldlaptop i looked in the downloaded file that was in the home dir and when i open the file is has something in it that says setoolkit.
16:27<oldlaptop>although that's still just a speedbump

16:40<freelinux>yeah this toshiba is definitely old
16:40<oldlaptop>freelinux: Sounds like the boot loader isn't loading, for one reason or another
16:40<freelinux>both hinges on the laptop broken
16:40<oldlaptop>d-i puts GRUB in the MBR by default, right?
16:40<freelinux>okay should i install a boot loader onto usb and try that?
16:40<oldlaptop>so it wouldn't be a problem with active partitions
16:41<oldlaptop>freelinux: you could do that
16:41<oldlaptop>might at least get you into the installed system to try and fix things

16:45<Bungofant>use it as a music/video server
16:45*oldlaptop wouldn't be able to lurk in here slurping up useless logs 24/7 without a server
16:46<oldlaptop>I also run a mozilla sync (weave?) server for my personal use
16:47<freelinux>what does that do o_O
16:47<oldlaptop>mpd is the best thing that's happened to music since digitization
16:47<oldlaptop>freelinux: quassel is a distributed IRC client
16:47<freelinux>Mozilla sync thing
16:47<oldlaptop>the IRC client part runs on my server (a raspberrypi actually) 24/7

16:48<freelinux>is there a way boot without a bootloader?
16:48<oldlaptop>very convenient
16:48<oldlaptop>freelinux: that's like asking if there's a way to run without legs
16:48<freelinux> you can kinda of flail around with your arms?
16:49<oldlaptop>now, the bootloader doesn't have to be on the same device you're going to boot from, necessarily
16:49<oldlaptop>you can have super high-tech network-booting prosthetic legs
16:49<oldlaptop>but in the end you need legs :)
16:49<Bungofant>the quassel-client is QT-based? mmh...
16:49<freelinux>whatever. I give up.

17:00<oldlaptop>No unetbootin

17:00<freelinux>I'll try w/o unetbootin
17:02<freelinux>how do you mount an ISO on a flash drive ._.
17:03<blast007>!tell freelinux about usb install
17:04<freelinux> you will need a system where GNU/Linux is already running and where USB is supported.

17:05<oldlaptop>fine then
17:05*oldlaptop doesn't remember if Mac has /dev now...
17:05<oldlaptop>it should
17:06<oldlaptop>it certainly has dd, it's POSIX compliant!
17:06<oldlaptop>You should be able to follow those instructions on mac I guess
17:06<oldlaptop>make darn sure you overwrite the flash drive and not something else
17:07<ompaul>cat foo.iso > /dev/sdwhatever
17:07<oldlaptop>or dd if=foo.iso of=/dev/bar bs=4M

17:14<oldlaptop>FakeBoost: open a port?
17:14<oldlaptop>Are you trying to forward a port through a NAT firewall/router then?
17:14<oldlaptop>righty. You first need to find out what your router's dynamic IP range is
17:14<FakeBoost>I know it's not strictly debian, but maybe someone can help me
17:14<oldlaptop>that is, the range of IPs it reserves for dynamic use
17:15<oldlaptop>(it's done on Debian in a debian specific way anyhow :))
17:15<oldlaptop>Obviously there can be problems if you assign your computer an IP and the router comes along and assigns the same IP to something else

18:47<charles>so if i just installed it and really did nothing big on it i am sure that i am using all the generic drivers that came installed
18:47<jmcnaught>charles: Pinguy isn't Debian. There's probably a Pinguy channel out there some where, but only Debian is supported here :)

19:46<SynrG>that's a *hell* of a lot of reading
19:47<SynrG>did this system, at any point in the past, have any packages mixed in from either a third-party source or a different release (i.e. not stable)?
19:49<RC4-GaryOakPhD>No, I don't think so
19:49<SynrG>all of the errors shown in this post are very fishy
19:49<RC4-GaryOakPhD>I mean maybe it didd

19:49<dpkg>synrg: That isn't enough detail, post the whole output to a pastebin (/msg dpkg pastebin).
19:49<RC4-GaryOakPhD>I bet I messed it up
19:50<RC4-GaryOakPhD>Maybe when I tried to upgrade from debian 6 to 7 it got mixed
19:50<RC4-GaryOakPhD>or something
19:51<SynrG>no. that shouldn't have caused this

20:16<RC4-GaryOakPhD>how should I go about doing this?

20:37<freelinux>i have something of an insane challenge.
20:37<freelinux>I don't even know how to word it right.

20:38-!-knuty [~quassel@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:38<freelinux>Okay. Say I install debian onto a 800mb cd that I found then use it as a livecd then while I'm in debian live i install windows from a usb to a different partition?
20:39<sney>not really?
20:39<oldlaptop>how in hell are you going to install windows from a minimal debian system?
20:39<stripe>maybe with a VM
20:39<freelinux>No clue.
20:39<freelinux>asking for help.
20:40<sney>but you could boot a debian livecd, repartition your disk, then boot the windows installer and install to one partition and then install debian to the other
20:40<stripe>but why?
20:40<sney>it's better to install debian second since windows likes to overwrite the bootloade

22:02<sney>is it terribly slow?
22:02<ReimuHakurei>The entire system crashes shortly after loading all the kernel modules.
22:03<ReimuHakurei>trying to dd all these cartridges i got with it, and it usually crashes the whole system before 30MB is transferred of of one.
22:03<ReimuHakurei>(relavant modules: paride, epat, and pd)
22:03<sney>it's probably conflicting with some other module and was never noticed as doing so, for the reason you initially asked
22:04<ReimuHakurei>Might be an issue with the computer itself, possibly though - Just aquired this old (~2007) box a few days ago, and I had some issues getting Debian even installed to the thing (Installer kept freezing)
22:04<ReimuHakurei>only managed to get it running by installing in a virtual machine then swapping the disk
22:05<sney>yeah that shouldn't happen on a machine as recent as 07 unless there's some hardware fault
22:05<sney>is it a laptop by chance

22:06<ReimuHakurei>the copy of XP it had on it worked perfectly fine (I was stuck using it for most of a day) so i'm reluctant to blame the hardware though

22:33<ReimuHakurei>are you trying to use it like the GUI version? It would appear to be that the Debian MAME package does not include a GUI (I may be wrong here)
22:33<ReimuHakurei>so you probably need to launch it via the command-line
22:34<sleser>the gui wants to open but then there error comes . for the ini file
22:34<sleser>to configure something there. inside

22:53<dpkg>To automatically mount removable media like optical disks and USB keys under KDE, ensure that your users are in the plugdev group ("adduser YOURUSERNAME plugdev"). You will have to log out and back in again after changing group membership. Add a "Device Notifier" plasmoid to your desktop to get a pop-up notification on device insertion, or mount them through dolphin or the "Computer" entry on the K menu.

22:56<oldlaptop>is it just going to sit in one place on the same network all the time, or will it move around?
22:56<ReimuHakurei>ethernet should be automatic
22:57<ReimuHakurei>the installer should've configured it for you
22:57<freelinux>i tried aptitude install gnome but it didnt work :L
22:57<ReimuHakurei>if not, you just need to set eth0 to auto dhcp
