07:14<peb>Synthea: you mean the dns namespace I guess?

07:15<Synthea>Well if it's that yes
07:15<peb>the DNS zone transfer has been deactivated on Debian's authoritatives servers
07:15<peb>so there is no trivial way
07:15<Synthea>Yeah I know, that's why I'm asking
07:15<peb>sure, you could do otherwise
07:16<Synthea>No trivial what does means?
07:16<peb>but the best idea in my opinion would be to nicely ask to the DSA
07:16<Synthea>Yeah but idk to whom
07:17<peb>if you expect a positive answer, the best idea would be to provide a little intel to them

08:39<k-man>in nautilus, can i add bookmarks above the section above the "Bookmarks" Section, like where Home, Documents and Downloads are?
08:39<k-man>Synthea, a "thing" ?
08:40<Synthea>k-man ???
08:40<k-man>what do you mean by a "thing master-key"?
08:41<grawity>k-man: only certain predefined ones (Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures, Videos)
08:41<k-man>grawity, i can't make my own ones there?
08:41<grawity>their path (and name, sort of) can be changed, but programs will expect them to use for that thing
08:41<grawity>no you cannot
08:41<k-man>grawity, ok
08:41<grawity>the bookmark area is where the bookmark area is
08:42<k-man>Synthea, i'm not at all expert at that, bit I think this may help you?
08:42<k-man>grawity, ok thanks
08:43<k-man>grawity, can i add a bookmark for / somehow?
08:43<Synthea>k-man, something like master - subkey
08:43<grawity>go to /, press the "Add bookmark" button
08:44<k-man>grawity, i think i must be "doing it wrong" (tm)
08:44<k-man>as i don't see any add bookmark button
08:44<grawity>it's somewhere
08:44<grawity>use Ctrl+D
08:45<k-man>thank you
08:46<Synthea>k-man, yes but how to create them?
08:47<grawity>Synthea: gpg --gen-key
08:47<blast007>Synthea: have you done any research on this or are you just using us as your search engine?
08:48<Synthea>blast007, yes but not with gpg2
08:48<blast007>so the answer is 'no' then?
08:48<k-man>Synthea, ? as i said, i have no idea
08:48<grawity>it works the same way in gpg2 as it did in gpg1
08:48<Synthea>grawity, so what's the difference between gpg2 and gpg1?
08:49<grawity>internal architecture

09:30<Synthea>evolution says that a signature is valid but isn't possible veryfing the sender, what does that mean?
09:35<Synthea>Or, to say it better, why isn't possible verify the sender? Isn't the email address included in the key?

09:41<grawity>so if you just compare the sender address with the signing key, that... completely defeats the purpose of signing

11:40<abacate>Or if someone else could help me, I would appreciate.
11:40<dpkg>If you have a question, just ask! For example: "I have a problem with ___; I'm running Debian version ___. When I try to do ___ I get the following output ___. I expected it to do ___."

If you don't get an answer try a few hours later or on See <smart questions><errors>.
11:40<arto>abacate: what is your problem?
11:41<abacate>Sorry petn-randall
11:41<peb>don't be sorry, just don't hesitate to ask your question :)
11:42<abacate>arto, I have bought the TP-LINK TL-WN823N usb wireless adapter. With help, I have installed it, and it does detects the available wireless networks, but I can't connect to them.
11:42<arto>abacate: how do you try to connect? Any errors?
11:44<abacate>arto Using Wicd, I have a list of wireless networks, including "testing 123", the network I have set up just for testing my adapter. When I click "connect", it stops at "obtaining IP address", but then, after some time, just says "not connected".
11:44*peb did have kind of the same issues regarding wicd & dhcp
11:44<abacate>I have disabled any security for this network, so it cannot be incorrect password - it does not have any.
11:45<petn-randall>abacate: It sounds like you don't have a DHCP server running on the wifi network.
11:45<peb>abacate: how is this network set up?
11:45<arto>abacate: and you are absolutely sure you have the right password
11:45<petn-randall>arto: hahahah :)
11:45<abacate>petn-randall, when I connect to my wireless router through cable, I see DHCP enabled on the configurations.
11:46<peb>abacate: maybe there are specific dhcp configuration you should set up on this router?
11:47<peb>(for the wifi)
11:47<arto>petn-randall: you would not believe how many times right password solved many problems as I worked a few years in computer support
11:48<abacate>peb, the options on the DHCP tab are "enable" (yes/no), starting IP address, ending IP address, and the lease time.
11:48-!-mode/#debian [+l 358] by debhelper
11:48<peb>did you restart your wireless router since you enabled the dhcp/configured this wifi network?
11:48<abacate>Anyway, I cannot connect to a wireless network of my neighbour, it gives the same error.
11:49<arto>abacate: I thin wpasupplicant is better at least for configuring, as it gives clear error messages
11:50<peb>abacate: as arto said, I'd try with something more verbose than wicd regarding errors
11:52<peb> to help you use wpa_supplicant
11:52<abacate>peb, restarted the router now, same thing.
11:53<peb>okay, so give wpa_supplicant a try
11:53<abacate>Also, I'm not using WPA, it's configured as "insecure".
11:53<peb>doesn't matter
11:53<peb>wpa_supplicant is able to connect to unprotected networks
11:53<abacate>I'm worried about the possibility of having messed up with the driver.

12:14<blast007>Synthea: why wouldn't you just run a caching DNS resolver on your network that forwards to a nearby public DNS resolver? having a local copy of the zone just means it will get out of sync and break.

12:31<abacate>peb and arto the driver was obtained at a github that said it had the updated driver. Then "make" "make install", etc. and it was installed. The official driver could not be installed, because it was for a very old version of the Linux kernel

12:33<abacate>I don't mind uninstalling the driver to test the dongle without it, but I don't know how to uninstall
12:33<peb>does the makefile have an "uninstall" option?
12:34<abacate>peb, yes
12:35<abacate>It is the "rtl8192eu-linux-driver-realtek-4.4.x", by the way

20:09<maxrazer>jitterstick, That quick format option in Finder doesn't work. I used the disk management tool. I created a 7.5GB partition, but didn't see or realize there was still a 400KB partition on there from Debian boot stick.
20:09<rmotao>Every time I join this channel I see less and less people. What's happening?
20:09<maxrazer>It is not very clear. Just annoying. Not Debian's fault. I'm not sure if windows did that or that partition was already there.
20:09<maxrazer>I think making a Debian boot usb is just one partition though.
20:10<maxrazer>rmotao, Might be the recent requirement to register.
20:10<jitterstick>maxrazer are you attempting to make a boot drive, or format for use afterword?
20:10<rmotao>I see.
20:11<rmotao>Debian turn bluetooth on every time I log in. Is it possible disable this?
20:11<maxrazer>No, I was just turning a Debian boot stick into a regular stick to give to somebody to put files on and when I formatted in windows it left a 400kb volume and they couldn't fit the files there and didn't notice the volume I actually created which was 7.5gb.
20:11<rmotao>My desktop manager is XFCE
20:12<rmotao>and I am using blueman to manager the bluetooth
20:13<maxrazer>rmotao, You could also try DWM. I was using XFCE, but you can much more easily use Debian unstable without a desktop environment.
20:14<blast007>maxrazer: you may be able to fix the partitions with Disk Management, or you could try installing SD Formatter and using that to quick format it (with the option to adjust the partition size enabled)
20:14<maxrazer>blast007, I went back with disk management and found it. It was labeled something not clear with the disk number or something and I missed it. It did not show up as a volume in the diagram.
20:14<jitterstick>rmotao go to the app menu settings and settings manager at the top then scroll down in options to session and startup then choose the application autostart tab and disable anything you wish.
20:17<rmotao>I see.
20:17<jitterstick>maxrazer on Debian !gnome-disk-manager will allow you to delete partitions and format, on windows diskpart will assist you. on diskpart type a ? and hit enter for options.
20:18<maxrazer>jitterstick, Thanks. I was using Windows Disk Manager
20:18<maxrazer>diskpart is CLI
20:19<rmotao>maxreazer... this DWM is stable or unstable?
20:20<jitterstick>yes type cmd in windows search at bottom right, or hold shift and right click to open one in a folder. if persmissions are insufficient type cmd in search and right click to run as admin.

20:41<maxrazer>rmayorga_, It is available on both. I don't remember if the unstable has a newer version. The point is very minimalistic interface is very good and done. XFCE, and others are always being fixed and never done. Also unstable is often partially broken because it is so complex.
