01:03<LeLutin>I'm trying to build a buster VM with packer. this is using a combination of bootloader params to debian-installer and a preseed file to automate things. for some reason the params and preseed file was working well with debian stretch, but with buster's installer I'm still getting stuck at "Select your location" question. is there something that changed in the debian-installer that would ...
01:03<LeLutin>... make this behave differently in buster?

02:16<LeLutin>jm_: yes, I can see that the installer is setting locale to C even though I have "locale=en_US" in the boot parameters. that's about as much as I could see. I've added BOOT_DEBUG=2 to the boot params to see if I would get more information but nothing super useful shows up

02:38<Omochao>hey, is there a machine-readable way of getting the current stable release name (currently “buster”) anywhere?
02:38<Omochao>(note that I'm not looking for the locally installed release name)
02:40<somiaj>what do you mean by machine readable. I think lsb_release -c should work
02:41-!-mith_ [~mith@] has joined #debian
02:41-!-mith_ is "mith" on #debian
02:41<Omochao>for example I could parse but relying on the format of that page to remain consistent seems like a bad idea
02:42<grove>somiaj: lsb_release is all about "the locally installed release", that Omochao said he wasn't looking for
02:42<somiaj>oh I see
02:42<somiaj>wonder if you can see where a link points on a remote server via http
02:44<somiaj> -- the release file might be better to parse
02:44<somiaj>I doubt the 'codename: name' part is going to change
02:44<Omochao>that looks good, thanks!

05:34<rant>wolfmannight: debian / linux doesn't work like that
05:35<rant>codec support is on a per-framework per-app basis.. if a media player uses gstreamer for example it works with whatever codecs gstreamer supports and that framework and app are respectively compiled against
05:36<rant>I personally haven't ran into a file I couldn't play but if you do, chances are you will need to recompile something
05:37<rant>wolfmannight: ffmpeg -codecs is a fairly good idea of what's supported..
05:38<wolfmannight>I mean there are list of packages like Ubuntu does ubuntu-restricted-extras
05:38<wolfmannight>I don't want all, but wanna cover most common ones
05:39<rant>thats already done
05:39<rant>ffmpeg, vlc, mplayer/mpv and such are already compiled with support for more than you'll likely ever need
05:39<wolfmannight>ffmpeg -codecs will that play mp4 with totem ?
05:40<rant>ffmpeg -codecs shows a list of codec support for ffmpeg, shows what it can encode/decode what is for audio,video,subtitles, etc..

05:58<judd>Bug in src:linux (open): «linux-image-4.19.0-5-amd64: incorrectly identifies some old Radeon HD as newer, preventing X from starting»; severity: important; opened: 2019-07-12; last modified: 2019-07-12.
05:59<wolfmannight>Love solid Rock stable Debian, who won't fall in love with Debian.
06:00<wolfmannight>Tried every distros out there for 20 days.. In conclusion Debian is selected for life long.
06:01<rant>wolfmannight: I personally use vlc and mplayer on my system.. I use vlc for most things, use mplayer if I wanna do something a little more low-level like dump frames to images or if I just want a flexible scripted chromeless playback
06:02<rant>vlc has all the bells and whistles for a GUI, mplayer has it all for cli/scripting environments
06:02<rant>totem is just like a horrible android looking UI that just so happens to be able to act like a media player
06:03<wolfmannight>I also uses vlc but I was compiling Debian gnome without games and some rarely used packages
06:04<rant>GNOME has gotten rather crappy since 3.x came out.. its a rather dumbed down kiosk-like interface that is sparsely documented, overly complex, and wreaks of bad code
06:05<rant>most of its desireable points have been implemented in MATE, and Cinnamon or XFCE also offer attractive and beter coded interfaces
06:05<wolfmannight>#debian-live community on IRC dead, only this place remain to solve my problems
06:05<EmleyMoor>If I'm compiling alternative kernels myself, how do I "copy" the existing configuration?
06:06<wolfmannight>Are you good with live-build ?
06:06<rant>they've added many new things to MATE, two new menu styles, a dock or two (OSX/GNOME3 style dock) the ability to put the window buttons/title (maximize/minimize/close) into a panel.. etc
06:06<rant>I have no interest in live media its rather annoying
06:07<wolfmannight>EmleyMoor It's in /etc/boot .config I guess not sure
06:07<rant>I typically just install to a thumbdrive if I need something like a live environment
06:07<jm_>EmleyMoor: cp /boot/config-foo .config && make oldconfig
06:08<wolfmannight>In /boot
06:08<rant>EmleyMoor: the config will not work if the kernel version is drastically different but its usually available as wolfmannight in /boot/ also in /proc/config.gz or such, and using the oldconfig directive when compiling a new kernel
06:09<wolfmannight>Installed kernel from experimental package I think 5.0 then get config file from it
06:09<judd>Available kernel versions are: experimental: 5.0.0-trunk-686-pae (5.0.2-1~exp1); sid: 4.19.0-5-686-pae (4.19.37-5); buster: 4.19.0-5-686-pae (4.19.37-5); stretch-backports: 4.19.0-0.bpo.5-686-pae (4.19.37-4~bpo9+1); stretch: 4.9.0-9-686 (4.9.168-1+deb9u3); jessie-backports: 4.9.0-0.bpo.6-686-pae (4.9.88-1+deb9u1~bpo8+1); jessie: 4.9.0-0.bpo.9-686-pae (4.9.168-1+deb9u3~deb8u1); wheezy-backports:
06:09<judd>3.16.0-0.bpo.4-686-pae (3.16.39-1+deb8u1~bpo70+1); wheezy: 3.2.0-6-686-pae (3.2.102-1)
06:10<wolfmannight>rant: never tried new MATE
06:10*EmleyMoor brings his bullseye VM up to date to act as a place to work on kernels
06:11<wolfmannight>Looks interesting
06:11<wolfmannight>VM best for testing
06:11*EmleyMoor is wondering how many versions to try going back at a time
06:13<EmleyMoor>4.19.37 definitely has the bug - should I try 4.19.0, then 4.18.0 if necessary, until the bug vanishes, then try the latest revision of the 4.x I reached? Could then jump by halves to find the version where the mistake was made
06:13<rant>wolfmannight: if you try it look in the package manager for additional mate- packagages.. the newer menus and docks and stuff are seperate optional components

06:14<EmleyMoor>Of course, if I'm really lucky it may have been fixed in latest 4.19
06:15<rant>I can't imagine most people use more than a dozen apps on any given month..
06:15<wolfmannight>Downloading MATE version
06:17<wolfmannight>I think in gnome 3.33, they re wrote some apps. And frame dropping also fixed. But Debian still using old one
06:17<rant>wolfmannight: I use mate when I use a DE cause the codebase is very mature.. XFCE is nice for example, but when I plug in external monitors or different audio setups I have to go change it all manually every time, MATE on the other hand remembers my configurations and restores them immediately on PnP functionality
06:17<wolfmannight>That's cool
06:17<rant>its highly configurable though simple right clicking and dialogs and such.. its a very robust and mature DE
06:19-!-Haudegen [] has quit [Quit: Bin weg.]
06:19<rant>and since its what Gnome3 was originally, it is easy to integrate most anything you want that GNOME has.. it uses the network-manager-gnome for example
06:20<wolfmannight>I switched from macOS.. so I selected gnome.
06:20<rant>uses same UI toolkit, same backends, gvfsd, etc
06:20-!-tdy [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
06:21<wolfmannight>Okey I will try MATE, but I'm still struggling with building live build. It's ask for login password and username. It supposed to auto login without asking it.
06:22<rant>try nodm perhaps.. simple configration, doesnt even have a login option, its auto-login only
06:22<rant>failing that, try lightdm.. farily simple to configure for autologin
06:22<wolfmannight>Installed live-boot and live-config.. but still no improvement
06:24<wolfmannight>In installer part everything works okey. But live part still pain in as*
06:24<rant>wolfmannight: do you even NEED a live setup? or could you survive with just installing normally to something like a thumbdrive?
06:24<rant>because doing it that way makes things DRASTICALLY simpler
06:25<rant>which is what I normally do if I need a portable bootable system.. I just put the debian installer on one thumbdrive and pop in another and install to the other one like it were a hdd..
06:25<wolfmannight>Yahh.. I but people don't wanna see how system look like ? Before they install ?
06:26<rant>what the system /looks like/ is irrelevant really on Linux.. in Debian we have 7 DEs available each are so configurable you couldn't even recognize one customization to the next very easily by looking at it.. and thats still only the tip.. we have tons of other window managers, panels, etc, you could mix and match to create a custom environment
06:27<rant>I've years ago made MATE look indistinguishable from Windows XP
06:27<rant>so what the default setup looks like its something to really base your decision on

07:05<GyrosGeier>the amdgpu driver
07:06<GyrosGeier>if so, you can just add it to the blacklist and rebuild the initrd so the early boot process knows about it
07:07<GyrosGeier>in the same way that the non-free nvidia drivers block loading the nouveau drivers
07:07<rant>not necessary
07:08<rant>modinfo amdgpu | grep 9802 returns nothing
07:08<rant>modinfo radeon | grep 9802 returns an alias
07:08<EmleyMoor>rant: Indeed...
07:08<rant>so only the radeon driver will claim it
07:08<GyrosGeier>then building a new kernel should not do anything

07:12<rant>for an issue that is claiming a video failure in xorg.. you need full output of the xorg log, you need full output of the kernel message buffer from boot, output of lspci -nn which you just provided

07:13<EmleyMoor>OK, dow do I get the "full output of the kernel message buffer from boot"?
07:13<rant>because all anyone needs to really know to get at an issue of that nature is the pciids of any and all video adapters, what the kernel says, and what xorg says
07:14<rant>EmleyMoor: well.. sometime near the boot a dmesg -T would do it.. but the buffer is limited and will be overwritten hours after boot or if something is spewing errors like crazy
07:14<EmleyMoor>The pciids of any and all video adapters are in there...
07:14<rant>EmleyMoor: we used to in sysv days have /etc/init.d/ saving that to /var/log/dmesg at boot.. but it no longer creates a static log of the boot
07:15<EmleyMoor>I might be able to get the dmesg -T output...
07:15<rant>EmleyMoor: yeah.. thats a bit tl;dr you just provided lspci -nn which is more sane

07:17<EmleyMoor>I can't be held responsible for reportbug <g>

07:47<rant>yeah, well shows recent pastes
07:47<rant>and that paste doesnt seem to show anything that looks apparently related to your card in terms of firmware
07:48<rant>still wouldnt hurt to see the dmesg from that kernel and perhaps even the xorg log
07:50<rant>I don't have anywhere to be for about 5 more hours so I could probably forward a more clarifying finding to the BTS and possibly shoot at some ideas about looking at changelogs or bisecting or w/e to figure out the who/what/where/when/why of the change
07:50<rant>since we identified more clearly what the issue is and have better info
07:50<EmleyMoor>xorg log is not in obvious place...

07:52<EmleyMoor>Can't find it at all
07:52<rant>the issue is really that the new buster kernel thinks the card requires firmware for kms when it doesn't.. as there is no firmware for the card.. or its on the card itself already.. but according to wikipedia the r600 was the codename for the HD 2000 where later they used words for codenames.. yours is codenamed Wrestler
07:52<rant>EmleyMoor: strange, but not a real big deal
07:53<rant>it seems the problem is on the kernel side of thigns anyhow

08:29<rant>EmleyMoor: this is where they added the link to the wiki.. pinpoints the part of the code in question I'd guess.. but this wasnt what caused the issue, just added a line to show the link so it was before this.. probably upstream that did it, not the Debian Maitainers

08:32<rant>I'm no git guru to know really how to figure out when a particular change occured.. I know vaguely about bisecting
08:33<rant>no, its def a debian thing, the upstream source has no such check in the radeon_pci_probe
08:34<GyrosGeier>rant, "git blame -- drivers/gpu/drm/radeon/radeon_drv.c"
08:34<rant>doesn't do any checking to see if the card is R600 or newer
08:34<GyrosGeier>that should show you for each line which commit changed it last
08:34<rant>GyrosGeier: yeah I'd have to have the git repo first.. and idk how to do all that offhand
08:35<rant>it appears this is debian specific as I said, I can plainly see the upstream thing doesnt have the lines showed in that debain patch I linked
08:35<rant>though that particular patch only shows adding one line, its not showing the adding of the entire section where it checks for that R600 or newer

09:56<inkbottle>What tools should I use for that?
09:57<rant>vadear: on my Thinkpad T440, its Fn+Space and that works as does passing 0,1,2 for off,dim,bright to /sys/class/leds/tpacpi::kbd_backlight/brightness
09:57<rant>vadear: tpacpi is a kernel module for the thinkpad's acpi features
09:58<vadear>rant, i do not have a Thinkpad
09:58<themill>On some machines, that's a BIOS setting
09:58<rant>however such functions should typically work via the keyboard function keys directly through the bios's acpi without any need for the OS or kernel
09:58<rant>it does not however suprise me that acer would have an issue.. they're pretty much junk
09:59<rant>I had one of their Apire netbooks before, it was riddled with issues
10:00<rant>vadear: you would still likely have a /sys/class/leds/ regaurdless and be able to search for acpi drivers for your machine see if they exist
10:00<rant>I was just telling you all I know for sure
10:01<vadear>Pressing Fn and F8 enables/disables sound
10:01<vadear>that works as expected
10:01<vadear>and so do Fn F5, Fn F6, Fn F7
10:02<themill>that is probably generating an XF86AudioMute key code
10:02<rant>quazgar_: eventually
10:03<rant>quazgar_: are currently held up in migrating out of sid due to introduction of various bugs and waiting on

10:13<grove>I don't remember the specifics, but as firefox won't support any version for as long as a release cycle, I believe some policy was made for putting some ESR versions into stable, hopefully not a version that will pull in a new nss (and what follows), so I guess the reasons currently holding it out of sid doesn't really matter for it's possible future in Buster

10:43<GyrosGeier>the three input0 ones correspond to the LEDs on your keyboard

10:46<GyrosGeier>that has "brightness" and "max_brightness" files inside

10:53<GyrosGeier>there are so many competing standards here that it's impossible to tell which one is the right one
10:54<noln>macs have kbd light under /leds fwiw
10:54<GyrosGeier>Mac hardware designers know how to write HID descriptors
10:54<GyrosGeier>basically, keyboards and mice are HID
10:54<vadear>I do not have a mac
10:55<GyrosGeier>keyboards say "I have 140 binary inputs, here is their mapping, and 3 binary output, here is their mapping"
10:55<GyrosGeier>the binary outputs then correspond to LEDs
10:55<GyrosGeier>if you have a backlight, there are more outputs
10:56<GyrosGeier>and the HID descriptor says "the first one is numlock, the second is capslock, the third is scrolllock, the fourth is backlight"
10:56<vadear> Acer Aspire E15 E5-576G is the laptop i have
10:56<GyrosGeier>or something such

10:59<GyrosGeier>going through HID is way cheaper than getting a driver signed :)
10:59<themill>it is the case for the device sitting on my lap
10:59<vadear>it is indeed complicated to solve this issue
10:59<GyrosGeier>the only other thing I could think of would be that they use an ACPI GPIO

11:13<vadear>rant, in my /etc/default/grub file i have the line as follows: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor". i added that line yesterday and then i executed as root update-grub2. Should i have executed any other command?
11:13-!-sadrak|work [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
11:13<rant>vadear: nothing other than rebooting.. but those commands arent some magic stuff that will fix this
11:14<rant>acpi_backlight may only be for the screen backlight for one thing, and vendor means to use a vendor specific driver which probably doesn't exist in this case
11:14<rant>the linux kernel tends to auto detect the best settings for anything thats supported and is done right
11:15<rant>it can't however guess at specific quirks of a company cranking out cheap garbage with different implementation issues in each model
11:17<vadear>i have to point out that the Fn F9 combination did enable/disable the backlit keyboard when i had stretch on the laptop and as far as i can remember i did not add acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor to my /etc/default/grub file
11:19<rant>vadear: so manually download and install the stretch kernel, boot it, and see.. if it works providing info from both kernels would help someone run it down
11:20<rant>I'm tired and have other places to be soon and I already ran down and reported one obscure kernel issue today. :P

12:00<gnzlbg>I have a problem, and i'm not sure where should I ask about it
12:00<gnzlbg>I want the OS to reject a binary from being run
12:01<gnzlbg>if the binary is compiled with features that are not available in the HWCAP/HWCAP2 auxiliary vectors
12:01<somiaj>write a wrapper script that only runs the binary if the features are available?

12:02<gnzlbg>a shell
12:02<gnzlbg>or whatever
12:03<gnzlbg>another binary might spawn it as a process
12:03<gnzlbg>doesn't really matter
12:03<somiaj>the or whatever matters, but if it is just a shell, you can put a wrapper script in /usr/local/bin
12:03-!-jhutchins_wk1 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:03<somiaj>and most things will have that in the $PATH and run the wrapper script that tests for the features and only runs the actual binary if the tests suceeded
12:03<gnzlbg>so just as an example
12:03<gnzlbg>if my binary is run in a system where the features required are not available
12:04<gnzlbg>it will delete all your files
12:04<somiaj>but if something calls the full path of the binary, this might not work. You could replace the binary with a wrapper script and rename the actual binary, but this will get overwritten when the packge is upgraded.
12:04<gnzlbg>so if this script has an error
12:04<gnzlbg>or any program spawning my binary has an error
12:04-!-mith__ [~mith@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:04<gnzlbg>the consequences are catastrophic
12:04<gnzlbg>so I don't think a wrapper shell script cuts it
12:04<somiaj>sounds like an xy problem. If the binary itself needs special features, the binary itself should be checking for them and acting sanely
12:05<gnzlbg>it cannot
12:05<gnzlbg>the binary is compiled with these features enabled
12:05<somiaj>or needs to be run as a user hwo dosen't have permissions to do bad things
12:05<gnzlbg>the code that does the check, is also compiled with these features enabled
12:05<gnzlbg>so if they are not enabled, all the code in the binary has undefined behavior
12:05<somiaj>still sounds like an xy problem, and you haven't even mentioned what binary this is, but it doesn't sound like one debian would ship but some third party binary.
12:06<gnzlbg>i didn't suggest that debian should fixed
12:06<gnzlbg>i asked for help finding a forum where to ask about this problem
12:06<gnzlbg>might need kernel support
12:06<gnzlbg>that checks whether all features that the binary requires are available, and if they aren't, rejects running the binary
12:06<gnzlbg>or something like that
12:07<gnzlbg>so maybe i should ask in the kernel mailing list ?
12:07<somiaj>still sounds like an xy problem. You need to fix the binary, not find some way to work around its poor design

12:09<gnzlbg>somiaj: the binary requires feature y to run
12:09<GyrosGeier>is that an executable or a shared library/
12:09<gnzlbg>it can be both
12:10<gnzlbg>ideally the linker would also reject it if its a shared library
12:10-!-Talkless [] has joined #debian
12:10-!-Talkless is "Vincas" on #debian-next #debian
12:10<GyrosGeier>because for shared libraries, you can have hwcap subdirs in .../lib
12:10<GyrosGeier>so you'd install two versions, and the runtime linker selects the right one automatically
12:10<gnzlbg>that still doesn't prevent somebody from using the wrong version AFAICT
12:10<gnzlbg>e.g. via LD_PRELOAD or similar
12:11-!-debianaut [] has quit [Quit: debianaut]
12:11<gnzlbg>also often I just want to ship one version
12:11<GyrosGeier>nothing prevents them from LD_PRELOADing a library that writes to address 0 in its init code
12:11<GyrosGeier>if it's broken, it's broken
12:11-!-inkbottle [~inkbottle@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:11<gnzlbg>e.g. most of my users have AVX2, but I want that those users that try to run it without AVX2 get a proper error
12:11<gnzlbg>my binary / library is documented as not do that
12:12<gnzlbg>but ideally this shouldn't rely on the user reading the documentation
12:12<gnzlbg>I compile the whole thing with AVX2 enabled, so I cannot really do a check for AVX2
12:12<somiaj>again still sounds like the binary itself should be checking for these features, and error out if they are not there.
12:12<gnzlbg>how can it ?
12:12<somiaj>via a wrapper or some sort of thing that can run without the features, check for them, and decide to error out or continue on
12:12<gnzlbg>if the feature is not enabled, _ALL_ code in the binary has UB
12:12-!-czesmir [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
12:13<gnzlbg>somiaj: how does that work for a shared library ?
12:13<somiaj>but this is outside of debian support, I'd ask in a coding channel about this paticular feature that is being troublesome (I don't know it well enough to have much impout on that)

12:13<GyrosGeier>gnzlbg, check, under "Hardware Capabilities"
12:14<GyrosGeier>the list is outdated in the manual, I think, I'd expect avx2 to be supported as a hwcap as well
12:15<gnzlbg>yeah, that recommends using directories when installing shared libraries
12:15-!-Lukimya [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:15<gnzlbg>it doesn't help if the library is not installed
12:15<gnzlbg>and well if you can compile with N features, you need N! library binaries, so it doesn't help much either
12:15-!-towo` [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
12:16<gnzlbg>as in, its a nice thing if you want to ship, an sse2 library, and an avx2 library, but if you want to ship `-march=native` libraries, then you'd need thousand of libraries
12:17<gnzlbg>also, it doesn't check which features the library needs
12:17<gnzlbg>it just checks whether the installed path mentions the features
12:17<gnzlbg>so if you install the library in the wrong path, boom
12:17-!-TomTheDragon [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:18<gnzlbg>which can happen, e.g., if the previous version of the library was compiled with sse2, and the author bumped it to sse4.2 silently
12:18<GyrosGeier>that's why we have a distribution
12:18<GyrosGeier>distro maintainers look at these things
12:18<GyrosGeier>gcc will not use sse4.2 unless told
12:19<gnzlbg>i ship my binaries myself, and people download them and run them
12:19<GyrosGeier>and it will also tell the assembler what instructions are allowed, so asm blocks are also safe
12:19-!-TomTheDragon [] has joined #debian
12:19-!-TomTheDragon is "Tom the Dragon" on #debian
12:19<gnzlbg>so I'd rather not make it up to them not screwing up
12:19<gnzlbg>I'd rather not leave run for the maintainers of packages screwing up either
12:20<somiaj>then shouldn't you be using something like snap/flatpack/appimage to bundle all the libaries needed so you don't relay on 'random distro's binaries to be nice'
12:20<gnzlbg>i don't rely on them being nice
12:20<gnzlbg>users rely on having hardware modern enough to run the binaries
12:20<gnzlbg>expecting everybody to know all hardware feature bits of modern CPUs is unrealistic
12:21<gnzlbg>so it should be possible for a binary to announce "I require this CPU features" and for the OS to give a nice error if they don't hold
12:22<somiaj>I don't see how this is the kernels problem, if this feature is as desctruptive as it is, the feature itself should do the check.
12:22<gnzlbg>it can't
12:22<gnzlbg>if you compile your binary for cpu X, all the code in the binary assumes the binary will only run on cpu X or better
12:22<gnzlbg>including any code to check for cpu X
12:23<gnzlbg>the compiler knows which features a binary needs to run, and could trivially insert masks for HWCAP/HWCAP2 somewhere
12:23<gnzlbg>that would be trivial for the OS to check
12:24<GyrosGeier>you could compile the check code with generic flags and link that to the rest of the lib
12:24<gnzlbg>generic flags aren't enough, e.g., gcc generic flags will use sse2
12:24<somiaj>this does sound like some kernel issue, maybe those who know the kernel (such as ##kernel on freenode) could give some pointers on if the linux kernel is capibable of this check or not.

12:25<GyrosGeier>true, but 32/64 are separate libs
12:25<GyrosGeier>fat binaries exist only on MacOS
12:25<gnzlbg>true, but IIRC still gcc enables sse2 for i686
12:25<gnzlbg>and somebody can attempt to run those on i586 or i486
12:26<GyrosGeier>so compile the source file containing the check code with -m386
12:26<gnzlbg>then it can't really check
12:26<gnzlbg>because cpuid is only available on i486
12:26<GyrosGeier>of course it can

15:11<dpkg>If you were already using Debian 10 "Buster" prior to it being released as stable, or you use 'testing' in your sources.list, apt-get will complain about changes to the release information on the mirror. apt(8) will prompt you to accept changes; apt-get(8) will need --allow-releaseinfo-change
15:11<meetgyn>Boa tarde a todos

16:32<jmcnaught>LeLutin: that's cool, is that vagrant-cachier? Does vagrant work well with libvirt or are you using it with virtualbox?
16:34<LeLutin>jmcnaught: exactly, it's vagrant-cachier! I've been using vagrant-libvirt for a while now and the debian package makes it really easy to use :) we've encouraged the whole team to use it since creating a new VM with this is almost instantaneous thanks to the use of snapshots based on the basebox images

19:14<kingsley_>Can any of Debian's fine system administration tools reveal which package or packages, if any, have new versions that are stuck in the experimental distribution, and, preventing newer versions of certain other packages, like gimp and kdenlive, from migrating from experimental to unstable?
19:15<somiaj>not sure what that would do, packages don't get stuck in experimental, also this is #debian-next
19:16<somiaj>when the matainer has a package that they deem ready for sid, they will upload it to sid. This may be based off the one in experminetal, but I don't see experimental holding anything back

19:22<tor_>I need help with zoneminder and buster!
19:23<tor_>I need install zoneminder from stretch-backports but libmariadbclient18 conflict with libmariadb3...
19:24<annadane>,v zoneminder
19:24<judd>Package: zoneminder on amd64 -- stretch-backports: 1.30.4+dfsg-2~bpo9+1; sid: 1.32.3-2; stretch-multimedia: 2:1.30.4-dmo1+deb9u2; bullseye-multimedia: 2:1.32.3-dmo4; buster-multimedia: 2:1.32.3-dmo4; sid-multimedia: 2:1.32.3-dmo4
19:25<tor_>ok thanks judd!
19:25<annadane>that doesn't actually help you
19:25<annadane>also, judd is a bot
19:25<annadane>i was just checking if zoneminder wasn't already in buster
19:25<annadane>(don't be fooled by "buster"-multimedia. don't use -multimedia packages)
19:26<tor_>ok judd don't help me please!
19:30<somiaj>ugg, I wouldn't trust dmo, but it appears that zonereminder is not in buster, you may want to find out why.
19:30<tor_>downgrade zoneminder it's recomended?
19:30<somiaj>installing it from stretch-backports is not recommended.
19:30<jmcnaught>tor_: ^^ this bug report is the reason zoneminder is not included in buster
19:31<somiaj>yea, looks like they refuse to give it security support. You may want to compile it from source and build your own package
19:31<dpkg>First, check for a backport on <debian-backports>. If unavailable: 1) Add a deb-src line for sid (not a deb line!); ask me about <deb-src sid> 2) enable debian-backports (see <bdo>) 3) apt update; apt install build-essential; apt build-dep packagename 4) apt -b source packagename 5) dpkg -i packagename-ver.deb To change compilation options, see <package recompile>; for versions newer than sid see <uupdate>.
19:31<somiaj>or maybe the matainer will upload it to buster-backports, but you may have to wait a bit on that.
19:32<somiaj>since they uploaded it to stretch-backports, I would expect them to do the same, but will have to be paitent

19:52<wolfmannight>How to switch to gui mode from init=/bin/sh mode ?
19:52<wolfmannight>Without restart
19:54<sarnold>wolfmannight: I'm not sure you can. *maybe* 'exec /lib/systemd/systemd would do the job, but it might expect a very different startup environment than you've given it

23:45<annadane>it's always just worked
23:45<annadane>i wonder if i could dpkg --configure virt-manager...
23:45<sarnold>at least ubuntu's got libvirtd group to gate privs for libvirt, and I've always assumed we got that from debian
23:45<annadane>no but even without being in the libvirt group it's prompted me for my root password
23:45<annadane>here it just says 'not connected'

23:47<annadane>maybe i need to start one or multiple of these services
23:48<sarnold>hmm.. if it prompted you for your password in the past that might be polkit
23:48<annadane>i can install one, i just don't know which to install
23:48<annadane>i'm on xfce

23:51<sarnold>annadane: those are the ones I've got available in my ubuntu bionic box, "apt cache search pok agent"
23:51<sarnold>pol rather
23:51<annadane>i'd installed i3 first and then xfce later
23:52<sarnold>heh yeah, my newest laptop I installed that way. bloody long process to get everything..
23:53<annadane>i wonder if i should just apt show xfce4 and see if a polkit is in depends/recommends and just install that one
23:55<annadane>should i just purge virt-manager and reinstall everything :P

23:55<sarnold>probably won't help but itmight feel good :)
23:56<annadane>i've never done i3 then xfce so this is surely due to dependencies
23:56<sarnold>time to run, have a good time of day annadane
23:56<annadane>well if anyone else knows feel free to tell me
23:56<annadane>unless i try polkit agents at random
