00:16<pdq>Nope, it still isn't fixed, and I can't move the window that Hexchat is in. I still think this is a display manager problems instead of a window manager issue.

03:33<binglis>good morning everyone. I was on about a week ago enquirying about corrupt records in a backend table microsoft access database after updating ssl on bullseye. I have now re-installed buster and everything is working fine. Have been doing a lot of reading to see why the background records should get corrupted and cant find anything. Have been chatting to other IT men and nobody has any idea
03:33<binglis>why this happened. Is there anyone that has any idea on why the background records are being corrupted

04:16<binglis>I do use samba to share the backend table database. This has been working fine with no errors for a number of years. When I updated to bullseye after the intial update it all worked fine. Then last wednesday there was an update on ssl and then it started to go wrong

04:20<binglis>I have downgraded back to buster and its all working fine. This is being supported until 2024 so it gives me time to look into the issue. The only problem is I havent a clue where to start. I checked samba and it all seems to be ok that end. I doubled checked access and cant see where I have gone wrong that way. so it must be something to do with ssl is my only conclusion but why

04:22<tjcarter>I was under the impression that the application should be irrelevant to samba
04:23<binglis>me too but why does the issue start when I updated the ssl on bullseye. Is there some locking happening with the access tables

04:25<binglis>I have spent the last week looking into why its happend and there is no logical explaination. But the tables got corrupted and records were lost. Lucky i have backups and i moved the table to a local computer and it all worked ok until I reverted back to buster and now its all working correctly on the network
04:27<manxorist>hello! I am running rsync in daemon mode on Debian 10 and 11 as a backup file store (configuration: ) Since updating to Debian 11, rsyncd fails to copy device node files ( ). I am completely lost as to what caused this change in behaviour. It works when using rsync over ssh, so I guess it may be related to either rsyncd itself or to the way rsyncd is started
04:27<manxorist>in Debian 11. Any suggestions what I could try?

04:55<tjcarter>the root filesystem might, but they're pretty much legacy devices anyway. /dev/ is a mount point for udev
04:55<manxorist>but true, it's somewhat redundent to do so, considering udev
04:55<tjcarter>I'd suggest just adding an exclusion for /dev because of that
04:56<tjcarter>not as a way of fixing your problem necessarily, but because it's just logical to skip /dev, /sys, /run, /proc, etc.
04:56<tjcarter>(not /etc though, definitely back that up! 😃)
04:56<manxorist>well, if debian puts something in /dev/ on the rootfs, i'll backup it and restore it. worked for me in the past.
04:57<manxorist>i'm not backing up whatever udev puts in its tmpfs of course
04:57<tjcarter>I can pretty much guarantee there's nothing in /dev on my system, but I didn't install in the most traditional manner!

06:44<binglis>petn-randall: I dont know if its related to SSL. everything worked fine until the SSL package updated. Then the backend tables began to be corrupted. It might be something else that is causing this but until the SSL upgrade it all worked perfectly
06:46-!-ivan81 [] has quit [Quit: ivan81]
06:46<petn-randall>binglis: Everything worked fine until you *upgraded* to bullseye. You're suggesting its related to SSL without verifying it.
06:47<petn-randall>binglis: Unless I missed something, or you debugged it and didn't share the results yet.
06:47<binglis>when i updated the whole system I spent all weekend checking and couldn't find any faults at all. the database worked and all tests were 100%. It might be another underlying issue but what?? everything worked fine in the database until the SSL update in bullseye.
06:49<jm_>I think the last time binglis said this cames with ssl update in bullseye, so it wasn't dist upgrade
06:49<binglis>Before this isue arrived it worked in buster with no issues at all and it is now working in buster with no issues. I have chatted with a few people and no one can work out why this is happening. At the moment the database is working on the network
06:51<petn-randall>binglis: You have also upgraded libc. And you have upgraded samba. And you have upgraded hundreds of other libraries. It's a mistake to focus on SSL right now.
06:51<binglis>i dist upgrade to bullseye on Friday 20th aug. Tested all week end and no issues then on wed 25th aug there was an update with SSL. That is when the problems started
06:52<petn-randall>binglis: Ah! So there *is* something you didn't tell us.

07:25<dennisvd>also all the non-free firmware is there
07:25<Urk>Well there are still errors in the debugger screen for light dm Any ideas how to fix this (see line 30)? HOwever, progress is being made.
07:25<dennisvd>But I did come from buster + amdgpu-pro to bullseye without the amd proprietary drivers
07:26<binglis>petn--randall: thanks for taking the time to try and help me. I am a one man band and going north next week for 3-4 weeks starting another job. I will be taking my laptop with me so can ssh and vpn into my own and clients server. Just any help or if you can point me in the right direction would be very much appreciated
07:26<Urk>Well there are still errors in the debugger screen for light dm Any ideas how to fix this (see line 30)? HOwever, progress is being made.
07:26<blast007>dennisvd: do you have the package firmware-amd-graphics installed? do you have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf or anything in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ ?
07:26<cOOl>binglis is ssh installed on your laptop?
07:27<Urk>I am going to go to the command line with Ctl Alt F3 since I can't pull up the command line in the same screen as this browser due to the LIghtdm problem.
07:27<binglis>even beginning to think of redesigning database to work with mysql/php/apache but that would take quite some time. Would rather try to solve this first
07:27<cOOl>binglis install on your server openssh-server
07:28<binglis>c001: yes putty
07:28<cOOl>is your server a linux maschine?
07:28<cOOl>so install openssh-server package

07:29<dennisvd>blast007: I don't know, and I don't have access to the box right this moment. I'll check tonight, but what I basically wanted was some general confirmation that my card *should* work with plain Debian. The reason I went for the amdgpu-pro stuff is that it works with blender for GPU rendering. Now I can't get that to work at all (their version is for Ubuntu 20.04 and the dkms module fails to compile as it
07:29<binglis>thanks but already know allthat
07:29<dennisvd>seems to be for the 5.11 kernel)

07:30<blast007>dennisvd: I've been using an RX 570 on bullseye for several months
07:31<jmcnaught>Urk: instead of trying to start lightdm on the command line you should probably be looking at the output of "systemctl status lightdm" and "journalctl -u lightdm".
07:32<jmcnaught>Urk: also you may have confused your Display Manager lightdm (which handles logins) with your Window Manager (xfwm?) which handles multiple windows and their titlebars in a session.
07:32<jmcnaught>Urk: I still think that you should create another user *for testing* to narrow down whether the problem is system-wide or specific to your user.
07:32<Urk>jmcnaught: I reinstalled the windows manager
07:33<jmcnaught>Urk: anyways good luck, I'm on my way out the door for work.
07:33<dennisvd>blast007: thanks, that means that it basically should work if I get the right packages installed ;-) (Provided that the 570 and the 580 aren't radically different underneath)
07:34<blast007>both the 570 and 580 are Polaris20 XL

09:18<DoctorD90>hello! In past I dd-ed the iso of xfce/gnome on an hdd of a laptop and I used it as living image. I parted the remaining space of the disk (less the iso image) to store data. All went good. Now I tried to do it with a nvme, but it reports (once dd-ed the debian 11 xfce iso) that the full disk is taken without left space (gparted) and other tools (parted, gdisk, fdisk) gave a different feedback. anyone has any
09:18<DoctorD90>idea how to solve it adding a normal addigionatl partition for persistent data?

09:30<tepozoa>I am just getting started with NVMe (I don't have one yet) but I believe the solution is to use "namespaces" - install the nvme-cli package to provide the `nvme` command as a start, you really want that tool for things. You can then make namespaces within the device itself, which are sort of like "hardware partitions" - /dev/nvme0 is the whole device, /dev/nvme0n1 is partition 1,
09:30<tepozoa>/dev/nvme0n1p1 is your more familiar (parted, gpt, etc) Linux partition 1 within namespace 1
09:31<grawity>DoctorD90: GPT partition tables have an explicit "last usable sector", which in your case is set to the image's size – I don't remember where in gdisk or fdisk it can be changed though
09:31<binglis>petn--randall: I was out working and was hoping to hear from you about my issue. Have any ideas at all what I should do next. Thanks in advance

09:35<DoctorD90>tepozoa, I ended up with the same though...cause it seems the ISO take in any case the full space of "disk" I use. So I thought to clean the namespace used and create 2 namespaces (1 5gb for ISO, 1 remaining space for data). But before everything I preferd to ask :)

09:36<tepozoa>grawity is right as well -- that is how you would go about actually adjusting the GPT headers. I think a more "nvme-ic" (like "pythonic") :)) way to do this is use the natural nvme features and use namespaces.

09:36<tepozoa>I'm a cheap guy using all 2nd hand hardware, some day I'll get a NVMe drive :)
09:36<DoctorD90>grawity, yeah, the problem is that (maybe give a look at the pastebin i linked, it will be more clearer than my words probably), each tool recognize the partitions in different ways. Gdisk tells me that it is not possible to write the GPT or it will write on sectors of partition too, other says partiotns are gave me a strange feeling
09:37<tepozoa>I kinda want to learn through you - make some namespaces with your idea and ping me later on how it worked out :)
09:37-!-earthundead [~earthunde@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
09:37<DoctorD90>yeah yeah :D but that was also my idea ! But as you said, probably someone else already had some similar experience and solved :P
09:39<tepozoa>NVMe is complex - it has it's own version of mulitpathing, booting from fiber channel and all sorts of great stuff. It's no longer just a simple drive, there are tons of features
09:39<DoctorD90>tepozoa, running commands with nvme-cli (i already insatlled a couple of days/boots ago) it gave me that is supports/have only 1 namespace. And from a FAST read, I should do a couple of math to align the partition with nvme properties
09:39<DoctorD90> I would prefer to play with it as less as possible :P
09:40<DoctorD90>I will try the grawity commands...even if that will provide me the last sector. The problem is to *update* the fat/ that seems to be the problem from output I got
09:40<tepozoa>guess: consumer grade NVMe drives have features removed (in firmware) to keep the cost lower. THe "enterprise grade" NVMe drives probably have all the features of the specifications

09:44<jkc>tepozoa: That is not true. Consumer grade NVMe devices use flash that doesn't last as long.
09:44<jkc>Enterprise grade NVMe drives use SLC flash. Lasts forever, fast as OMG, but also expensive as OMG.
09:46<jkc>There are MLC SSDs in use for the layer between "Fast as OMG" and "bulk storage." TLC and QLC, which is what you find in most consumer NVMe SSDs, not so much. Doesn't last long enough to absorb the kind of write lifetimes you see in enterprise-level storage arrays.

09:48<coolguy75>Hey, all. I'm having a problem where anytime I try to install a new package I get the "no installation candidate" error. I've had this install since buster was in testing and never had a problem like this. I think this started happening after the bullseye release but only noticed yesterday. Here is my sources.list:

09:48<theooooo>Is there a reason for this and can I install it anyways?
09:48<DoctorD90>btw the issue remain :D no tool able to provide certain information on the partitions/able to write the correct information in proper way
09:48<theooooo>and if so, how?

09:49<petn-randall>theooooo: It was removed due to RC bugs. It's available from sid, but you have to manually edit the config file before it works.
09:50<theooooo>Interesting, were the bugs very serious?
09:50<theooooo>Also, how would I go about installing it from other repos?
09:51<petn-randall>theooooo: The "serious" bug was that starting it failed when you installed it. Because it is automatically started but there is no valid config, so it fails, which in turn makes apt/dpkg abort. So something that is easy to fix manually, and probably should be fixed in the packaging, too.

09:53<DoctorD90>jkc, sure, thanks. Im used to dd the DEFAULT live iso of debian to the hdd of pc and use it as clean image at each boot. Im used to create a partition too for persistent data (some download, some sharing data). Now I did it on a pc with an NVME and all software used (gparted, parted, gdisk, fdisk) gave me different behaviour (gparted gave me full disk, no space left). Parted and other strange warning on writing or unability to correct

10:53<Sqrt{not}>DoctorD90, The live (and installer) .iso images contain within themselves a partition table. When you dd (or whatever) that .iso image to the root of a disk, you are creating a partition table on that disk.

11:14<Sqrt{not}>DoctorD90, it is hybrid from the start, so it can boot in both UEFI or BIOS environments, and it contains a little ESP to facilitate the UEFI booting. This makes it look weird to some partitioning tools
11:14<jkc>Sqrt{not}: If you're using modern fdisk or gdisk, it won't look weird at all.

11:19<DoctorD90>jkc, no, just using a little bit of knowlegde and "average tools". In previous experience it was enough to use gparted with GUI and it showed up the free space. Now gparted shows no left space left and I went with terminal commands - but (too) strange output for me
11:19<jkc>DoctorD90: Spoiler alert: gparted is trash.
11:19<jkc>It obfuscates so much stuff, and what it doesn't obfuscate, it misrepresents.

11:20<DoctorD90>jkc, oh thanks....that is popping out clear to me with that issue :P many people are telling it to me :P
11:21<jkc>cp the iso to the disk (not a partition), use fdisk/gdisk to add a new partition at the end. Make filesystem on new partition.

11:28-!-lucas_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:28<jkc>Hence using gdisk to wipe that out.
11:29<DoctorD90>you are rigth. Bad experience with gparted as you stated let me bring to use dd on first sectors to wipe fat and initials gpt stuff....just a bad behaviour :)
11:29<jkc>That's why dd'ing the start of a disk isn't reliable. Ignores all the stuff at the END.
11:30<DoctorD90>jkc sorry, cp doesnt do the same? it doesnt ignore the stuff at the END ?
11:30<jkc>Sure it does.
11:31<jkc>But we're not using cp for the 'clear the crap off the disk' step. That's what gdisk and the 'clear the crap off the disk' operation is for.
11:31<jkc>We're using cp to put the data on the disk after the 'clear the crap off the disk' step is done.
11:32<DoctorD90>ok. So it is not fully clear to me the different between cp and dd, but I dont think this is the place to ask for it :) I will google a bit later :)
11:32<urk>I seem to be getting closer to the source of my display problems, and a potential fix. From what I have determined, xfce4.12 does not work correctly with both the Lightdm, sddm, nor lxde display managers.

12:23<Sqrt{not}>DoctorD90, I took a closer look at your paste. It looks like you are running from the live system on /dev/sda, probably a USB? It looks like not even gdisk is recognizing the full extent of the copied live image on your SSD.
12:25<Sqrt{not}>DoctorD90, I think you should use fdisk to create your extra partition(s) in nvme0n1. But maybe you want to make another nvme device, separate from nvme0, e.g. nvme1, and make partitions there.

12:29<Sqrt{not}>If you can do it in a separate nvme space, and just leave nvme0 with only the .iso copy int, and allocate the remaining SSD space into another partitioned space, then you don't need to fight with the existing partition tables of the .iso

12:44<coolguy75>using bullseye as a target before the release. Here is my sources.list now:
12:45<Urk>Any thoughts on how to downgrade from XFCE 4.12.5-1? I am running Buster 10.9, kernel 4.19 Most of the display managers will not work correctly with XFCE4.12.5-1, and I have tried many including LightDM, sddm, LXDM, etc.

13:57<mooff>i only checked out Libera yesterday. i think their guides are spot on, e.g

13:58<jkc>tjcarter: You're welcome to ignore all of the evidence if you really want to. You are entitled to your own opinions. You are now, however, entitled to your own facts.
13:58<sney>and it's the biggest irc drama in over a decade, as evidenced by how much people want to talk about it over and over
13:59<tjcarter>jkc: you are doing what everyone else has: You insist that I just take YOUR word for it. You haven't offered any evidence, you're just telling me that it exists and implying something about my character that I have "ignored" what you yourself didn't share.

14:26<dan1>I asked about this the other day and in the end I thought it was a gnome-terminal issue, but I was wrong is a more general problem
14:26<mooff>jeffry, the lines in between must be more interesting :)
14:26<mooff>dan1: how did it work before, and how does it work now?
14:27<dan1>am I the only having these kind of issues? it's basically a weird behavior after the other
14:27<dan1>mooff: I'm gonna explain it now but it's a little complicated since I don't understand what's really going on
14:27<dan1>well on buster it just worked
14:27<mooff>i wonder if you were using X before the upgrade, and now are on Wayland
14:28<dan1>I think it's a wayland problem, but I thought I was using it before as well, but I'm not sure
14:28<mooff>select + middle click paste works for me here, and Ctrl+Shift+c / v
14:28<mooff>on X
14:28<dan1>the two copypasting methods are the same, the clipboards are shared

14:31<dan1>completely isolated clipboards. I changed terminal emulator and the problem was solved. after that I had another problem, I used the search to find a file, tried to copy the name of that file and it wouldn't get copied. there was no problem copying the name if I would find the file navigating the folders thoug. out of curiosity I try to go back to the gnome-terminal to find out if the first issue was still there, it wasn't, system clipboard
14:31<dan1>was shared by the terminal doesn't matter wich terminal emulator I was using.
14:32<mooff>and, are you saying there is no other information between the 'Accepted password' and 'session closed' lines pasted above? jeffry

14:45<Sqrt{not}>DoctorD90, I don't know what you mean with a grub partition. Let me ask this: when you first dd/cp the .iso onto your SSD, can you then boot from it, before any editing of the partitions?

15:05<Sqrt{not}>another, thanks, but that's not what I think we are talking about. At this point, their machine only has 2 copies of a debian-live .iso image, which should each be totally self-contained for booting.
15:05<another>on DOS partition tables this is stored in the nomans' land between MBR and first partition. GPT explicitly forbids this. That's why there is a new partition type for such data
15:06<Sqrt{not}>another, not relevant here.

15:55<sney>debian/control for defines librpm8, so probably download that version of the debian source package and pass it to dpkg-buildpackage.
15:55<sney>if the build-deps are all present, it will probably just work.
15:56<Toinou>I have tried for but only librpm9 was built.
15:56<sney> , install devscripts and build-essential and see 'man dget'

15:59<Toinou>You are right. I was confused by this page:
15:59<ozzloy>how does systemd know to bring up that wifi card during boot? i do not see it listed in any configuration file
16:00<Toinou>Thanks for the answer. I will build the oldstable version.
16:00<sney>Toinou: np.
16:00<sney>ozzloy: debian doesn't use the systemd networking daemons by default. your nic is most likely configured by NetworkManager or connman if you have a gui, or by ifupdown if you don't.
16:01<sney>if this nic was used during your install, it's probably configured in /etc/network/interfaces which is the file ifupdown uses
16:01<scorpion2185[m]>and do I check etc/crypttab log?
16:01<ozzloy>hmm... that file says to source /etc/network/interfaces.d/ which is empty
16:03<tjcarter>normal for that to be empty
16:04<sney>interfaces.d is usually empty except on systems with really involved networking setups, a wifi configuration would just be in the main interfaces file.
16:05<jkc>Or for people who keep each interface in a separate file.
16:05<ozzloy>interfaces is empty other than the line that says source the interfaces.d
16:05<jkc>Doesn't have to be super complicated.
16:05<sney>but if it isn't, then something else is messing with your network. I've seen connman go out of bounds on a few people's systems, is it installed? do you get anything for e.g. 'journalctl -u connman'?
16:05<ozzloy>i'll check
16:07<ozzloy>no entries for connman. oh, this is actually a pop-os system. maybe they changed how networking works from base debian
16:07<sney>!based on debian

16:07<spawacz>i have 2 machines that are connected with cable to a router, now i need to connect them together. Do i need to disable dhcp client on both of them and assign a static ip?
16:07<sney>please go to the correct channel. QED, really.
16:08<sney>spawacz: no, if they're both on the same network then they should be able to communicate already
16:08<ozzloy>yeah, that makes sense
16:08<malakim>sney, i actually have a debian system nd my interfaces file does not mention anything about my wifi link
16:08<sney>malakim: it is not always used.
16:08<malakim>that makes sense
16:08<sney>interfaces will be pre-populated for a network connection that was used by the installer, in most cases
16:09<spawacz>i moved for a couple of days and i cant plug cable to the router, i thought i will make my PI conenct to router over wifi (success) and now i need to connect pc to the pi
16:09<sney>but that's all, everything else you configure yourself
16:09<spawacz>there is no way here to plug cable to the router
16:09<spawacz>and i have no wifi adapter in my pc... :(
16:09<spawacz>but when i plug the cable to pi, i cant ping it, even thought i set it to have static ip of
16:09<sney>spawacz: oh, you want to connect them together directly? yes, you'll need to set static ips to do that. you don't need to disable the dhcp client, but you'll need to give them both addresses in the same subnet.
16:10<spawacz>but i have not disabled dhcp on neither of machines, is it possible that each try to get a dhcp address from eachother?

16:13<Tj>spawacz: it is very likely both already have a link-local IPv6 address and can communicate using those, without worrying about any manual IPv4 configuration
16:13<Tj>spawacz: "ip -6 addr show" will likely show link-local addresses, of the form fe80::<something> on the interface(s)
16:14<ozzloy>ok, on my debian system, /etc/network/interfaces still does not list wlp1s0 explicitly. it does say "iface lo inet loopback" though
16:15<sney>ozzloy: again, /etc/network/interfaces is only one way the network can be configured. if it's not that, it's something else.
16:15<sney>if there is a desktop on that debian system, it's probably NetworkManager.
16:15<Tj>ozzloy: check which service is managing network. "systemctl status connman systemd-networkd NetworkManager networking"
16:16<ozzloy>thanks! do you know off the top of your head where NetworkManager would keep that configuration? if not, i can google it
16:16<ozzloy>Tj, ok
16:16<ozzloy>it's a desktop. this one's a laptop
16:16<Tj>ozzloy: "nmcli con" will list connections
16:16<sney>nm is best managed with its utilities, either a desktop applet or nmcli

16:20<ozzloy>based on that systemctl thing, it's either NetworkManager or networking
16:20<malakim>sney, ctrl_V was not working to paste it to a terminal window, so i tried an old qbasic binding, gess what, it works! shift_INS
16:20<Tj>ozzloy: a tool called wpa_supplicant is operating in the background, NetworkManager controls and talks to it

16:21<ozzloy>how does wpa_supplicant know what devices are wifi devices?

16:23<sney>no, you would need to configure some forwarding for that
16:25<Tj>spawacz: not using link-local addressing no; you'd need to add a global prefix and routing (which can be easier than configuring IPv4 NAT!)
16:25<ozzloy>Tj, thanks!
16:26<ozzloy>does wpa supplicant just ask every file under /dev/ whether it's a wifi card?
16:26-!-format_c [] has joined #debian
16:26-!-format_c is "Alexander Koeppe" on #debian
16:27<Tj>ozzloy: no; kernel modules (drivers) declare alias'es, which match on hardware device IDs. Those kernel modules then expose the wireless interface via the kernel's wireless APIs cfg80211
16:27-!-allorder [] has joined #debian
16:27-!-allorder is "allorder" on #debian-quebec #debian
16:28<ozzloy>and ... the driver registers with the kernel? so wpa can ask the kernel for wifi devices?
16:28<Tj>ozzloy: the driver (kernel module) is part of the kernel
16:29<Tj>ozzloy: the userspace wifi tools like iw, iwlist, iwconfig, wpa_supplicant, hostapd all use the kernel's userspace wireless interface via cfg80211 and netlink sockets
16:30<ozzloy>i see
16:30<spawacz>so my pc is, pi is over cable. then pi is conencted to a router at with ip Is that much hustle to make the forwarding from pc to router vis pi now?
16:31<ozzloy>would it be correct to say the kernel maintains a list of wifi devices then? and it knows what devices are wifi devices because the driver called the right kernel calls to put an entry for itself into the some kernel data structure?

16:35<Tj>ozzloy: check out " ls -la /sys/class/net/*/phy80211/ " this will show some of the attributes of any wireless interface
16:35<ozzloy>sney, thanks for confirming
16:36<ozzloy>Tj, oh neat
16:36<Tj>ozzloy: the kernel exposes all the info about devices physical and virtual under /sys/ in what is called the 'sysfs' (system file-system)
16:37<sney>spawacz: it's not really trivial, you'd need to set up routes, iptables rules, and probably dns if you want a regular web browsing experience from your pi. using linux as a router is fairly common and there are a lot of howtos, but it's not super fast and may be confusing if you've never done it before.
16:37<Tj>ozzloy: and if you want to know what driver manages a device, you can look at the symbolic link from each ./device/driver e.g. "ls -la /sys/class/net/*/phy80211/device/driver"

16:42<mooff>Tj, fun for all the family!
16:42<Tj>ozzloy: USB 'class' devices are designed to a pre-defined interface so operating systems only need a standard 'class' driver rather than one driver per device
16:43<Tj>ozzloy: USB is overrun with class devices to keep our lives simple, thankfully
16:43<ozzloy>oh that sounds a lot cleaner
16:43<ozzloy>the great thing about standards is that there are so many of them!
16:43<Tj>unfortunately that doesn't extend to USB wifi 'dongles'
16:44<ozzloy>aw man
16:45<Tj>and to make matters worse, many USB wifi drivers are not in the mainline kernel. They get 'thrown over the wall' by the device chipset manufacturer when the chipset is released and then left to rot. Unless some dedicated users/programmers keep them up to date and packaged to work with later kernels they can end up being useless. For those many times now you'll find 'github' repos of
16:45<Tj>various quality trying to maintain support.

17:10<mooff>you said you installed phpmyadmin with apt.. so that's probably the default, to hit the default mariadb socket
17:10<sney>if it's on a local network behind a NAT then it is as secure as anything on your local network.

18:50<ppc64>yes, I did the install from Debian sid "Unofficial amd64 NETINST with firmware 20210902-02:51" with expert mode and set the ip address specific. Then selected LXDE as the desktop GUI and upon boot I was surprised by DHCP doing what it does
18:50-!-jw_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:51<sney>there have also been a few people getting zeroconf addresses from connman, breaking routing, on networks without dhcp
18:52<ppc64>I am lucky that I have a ipv4 /26 subnet for testing and inside that is a very very small /29 subnet for DHCP stuff. Which was the only reason I could ssh into the box after install.

19:22<SpeakerToMeat>Question, if I decide to give in to peer pressure, and change python-is-python2 to python-is-python3, how can I do this without all the packages that rely on python not freaking out while aptitude learns that python-is-python3 provides python as well afetr install?
19:23<sney>SpeakerToMeat: no debian tools in bullseye depend on unversioned python, so the only "freaking out" would be with legacy stuff not from debian

19:28<SpeakerToMeat>... so there is no way to do it with aptitude/apt?
19:28<sney>no, apt does not have a mechanism to edit your scripts
19:29<sney>packages in bullseye were patched to fix this before the release. it was one of the major transitions that happened

19:30<SpeakerToMeat>What do you mean edit scripts?
19:30<SpeakerToMeat>python-is-python2 and python-is-python3 both provide python.
19:31<sney>each package only contains a symlink.
19:31<SpeakerToMeat>But if I try to install python-is-python3 aptitude doesn't see that it provides python, it only sees that the python-is-python2 provided python is going away, so packages depending on python will "break"
19:31<SpeakerToMeat>sney, and "provides: python"
19:32<sney>then aptitude is being silly, try it with apt
19:32<SpeakerToMeat>Ok let me see if a simple install will work with apt
19:33<sarnold>oh, is this all about trying to find the commandline apt install python-is-python2- python-is-python3 ?
19:35<SpeakerToMeat>Nope, apt seems to do the same....
19:35<sney>what do you have installed that still depends on unversioned python?
19:37<mooff>can you 'apt install -s python-is-python3' -> ?

20:07<user194>yeah i'm having a feeling that even if X might support this I might hit other problems like session management/dbus

20:18<sychill>tepozoa: calcurse is apparently lossy. I entered events directly into an android calendar app which used the Title, Location, & Description fields and imported into calcurse. Calcurse only grabbed the title and times, and dropped the location and description. I then re-exported those events from calcurse and imported into the android calendar app. There were dupes, but the records that were
20:18<sychill>re-exported by calcurse were missing location and description
20:19<sychill>So I guess this has to be a one-direction workflow. I'll have to do all the data entry in calcurse, and pull into the android without going the other direction
