01:26<stephen>Hi guys, does anybody have idea about installing librewolf in debian 11? I found that there's many conflicts among many dependencies
01:30<sney>,i librewolf
01:30<judd>No package named 'librewolf' was found in bullseye/amd64.
01:30<sney>3rd party vendors are often not careful about targeting more than one distro
01:31<sney>you will probably have to talk to their support if you can't get it figured out
01:31<sney>but if apt wants to remove something, sometimes you can let it, and then reinstall the thing again later

01:35<knghtbrd>librewolf is also kind of annoying to build yourself
01:35<sney>stephen: I didn't say autoremove. if you try to install your package and apt says "the following packages will be removed" to satisfy the conflict, if that list is non-destructive, sometimes you can just let it.

04:07<jim>I'm considering to get this pci card: 3ware 9550SX-4LP 64-bit/133MHz PCI-X SATA II (3.0Gb/s) Raid Controller Card, is there a way to find out if the driver is present in a debian installation without having the card yet?
04:08<ydbi>jim: what's the pciid?
04:08<jim>I don't know (I don't have the card yet)
04:08<ydbi>hmm. That's the only way I know how to check
04:08<jim>how could I find out the pciid?
04:09<ydbi>ideally the manufacturer would list it somewhere
04:11<colo>I guess it is 13c1:1003
04:12<jim>,pciid 13c1:1003
04:12<judd>[13c1:1003] is '9550SX SATA-II RAID PCI-X' from '3ware Inc' with kernel module '3w-9xxx' in stretch. See also

04:13<ydbi>I wonder about that -4LP though
04:13<jim>ok, good, so the device is present
04:13<colo>ydbi, that should just mean it's a 4 port, low profile variant
04:13<colo>if memory serves
04:13<colo>jim, I think you will be fine
04:13<ydbi>that should be fine then, the driver is identical
04:14-!-jarl [] has joined #debian
04:14-!-jarl is "realname" on #debian #debian-freeipa
04:14<jim>yeah, the 4 port is only 89 bux instead of 400 bux
04:14<jim>could be worth trying
04:14<colo>I think i've had a 2 port variant of the successor generation (already with pcie) once upon a time
04:15<colo>performance is not going to be great of course, but if you need the SATA ports and have a PCI-X slot - go for it

05:06<sychill>between sfdisk, cfdisk, gdisk, & other terminal-based partitioners, do any support adding a partition without disturbing existing partitions? E.g. after running “dd if=tails.iso of=/dev/sdc”, there is space for another partition. AFAIK, gparted is the only tool I can think of.
05:08<zsh>you forgot about parted
05:09<sychill>i'll use that then.. thanks!
05:10<zsh>i dont know if it will work for you
05:10<zsh>gparted is parted with a gui
05:11<sychill>well, parted gives “Error: Invalid partition table - recursive partition on /dev/sdc.” in response to “print list”.

05:13<sychill>i could boot the Tails disk, then use that to write Tails to another USB drive with a storage partition. But I think I'm forced to use an encrypted filesystem in that case (probably not FAT32)
05:15-!-argentwolf [] has joined #debian
05:15-!-argentwolf is "cengelbrecht" on #debian
05:20<knghtbrd>sychill: The way those ISO images are built is really a hack. Using a partitioner on them is likely to result in the partitioner getting really confused/angry
05:20<sychill>so i tried gparted and it shows the whole drive as being consumed by an ISO9660 partition, which is unlikely. I suspect this means an ISO9660 partition cannot share a drive with other partition types.
05:21<knghtbrd>The reason is that on optical media (what an iso file is supposed to be put onto) boots on a partition directly at the start of a disc
05:22-!-chipox [~chipox@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
05:22<knghtbrd>To use the same thing as a USB drive, you create a partition table
05:22<sychill>right but at the end of that "optical data" there is space. Even with a physical CD there are multimode CDs
05:22<knghtbrd>…in the middle (actually near the beginning) of a partition!

05:23<sychill>i think i once tried putting the Tails ISO file on an ext4 partition, and telling Grub to boot the ISO.. but that's a sketchy thing and Tails won't boot that way.
05:23-!-ee2455 [] has joined #debian
05:23-!-ee2455 is "ee2455" on #debian
05:23<knghtbrd>There is, but honestly I really think it's time to stop building "ISO" images of Linux installers, it's really broken and limits what you can do with them
05:24<sychill>indeed. Particularly when these ISO images often exceed the size of a CD
05:24<knghtbrd>you might be able to boot it from grub using grml-rescueboot
05:25<knghtbrd>(which is just some GRUB menu generation magic)
05:25<sychill>are there multiple ways to tell grub to boot an ISO?
05:25<sychill>i tried one approach (which works with some ISOs), but it did not work with Tails
05:26<sychill>i filled a disk with ISOs of various distros and had a GRUB menu item for each. IIRC only about 30% of those images booted successfully.
05:28<knghtbrd>There's I think two or three ways to do it
05:28<knghtbrd>it's worth a look anyway if you're interested in doing that
05:28-!-Ivy [] has joined #debian

05:29<knghtbrd>ideally though, if you want to use Tails from other than USB stick, you're probably going to want to install it to your partition using whatever facility it provides for that, and #debian isn't likely to be able to help too much with it
05:29<sychill>i did go as far as looking at boot params that are used on a normal ISO bit-for-bit disk and mirrored those into the grub params for booting the ISO, but that only helped a few cases
05:30<knghtbrd>If you want to copy the Tails media to an internal drive … you can probably do it one partition at a time
05:30<knghtbrd>(g)parted might support doing that at least.
05:31<knghtbrd>Might even be able to do it from a loop-mounted image

05:32<sychill>yeah i'm not sure I have a 2nd drive to play with, but I might try booting the ISO in virtual box then using the Tails installer from a Tails instance. (iirc, i tried that and got stuck because I struggled to give low level USB access to a vbox instance)
05:33<sychill>so the Tails installer couldn't see the USB disk (which needs to be unmounted yet visible to the vbox guest os)

07:21<colo>jim, contemporary hw-raid is mostly lsi/avago/broadcom (same tech and company, just an evolution in names and brand) in "IR" (integrated RAID) mode. it's usually not what you want in a Linux host in my opinion.
07:22<colo>but you can reflash almost all LSI IR controllers with official firmware that provides "IT" (Initiator/Target, iirc) mode, which turns most of their devices into decent HBAs
07:22<colo>if you want to take a look at such hardware, controllers/HBAs featuring the sas3008 chip and driver should be cheap and perform decently
07:23<jim>what's a hba?

10:07<Sqrt{Not}>I think what knghtbrd was saying points to the actual reason -- the images are also designed to boot in either mode from an actual CD/DVD, which requires obeying the literal ISO9660 layout.
10:09*Sqrt{Not} is typing right now from a machine that cannot boot from USB, but has a perfectly good DVD drive on it.

10:13<g00se>From what you just said about fdisk and live usbs, I might even think about adding a live persistence partition to my build scripts
10:14<coc0nut>anyone having issues with chrome cast on brave ?
10:14<coc0nut>or chromium'
10:15<coc0nut> <- seeing this from 3 days ago - having the same issue
10:15<Sqrt{Not}>g00se, that's what I do, I just put the extra partition at a easy-to-remember location (e.g. sector 10,000,000) because you will need to re-add it to the partition table any time you rewrite the beginning of the USB, but the extra partition will still be there, unchanged.

11:36<aloo_shu>*normally*, update-grub should do it all by itself, including running os-prober
11:37<aloo_shu>i.e. afaik, os-prober doesn't configure, but find, and is what grub-mkconfig and update-grub will invoke in a standard setup
11:38<aloo_shu>but it may help to troubleshiot: if an so-prober dry run doesn't find windoze, then neither will grub, my 2ct
11:38<DusXMT>Hey there, I've been thinking about extending my computer from a single-drive setup to a dual-drive one with RAID-1 (mirroring), mostly as a convenience in case my hard drive failed (I do have proper backups, I'm aware that RAID should never be treated as a backup) and perhaps for faster read speeds as well, and I wonder if, when you create a mirrorred partition with LVM, if it can
11:38<DusXMT>still be used without LVM (if the data stored on the LVM partition is verbatim to the data presented in the device mapper), in particular the /boot partition of a system - grub needs to be able to access it
11:40<g00se>I think I might need to place a menu entry in there explicitly. Not sure whether it wants a UUID or partition UUID though
11:41-!-trekkie1701c [] has quit [Quit: :P]
11:42<aloo_shu>afaik, lvm doesn't even guarantee that lvm volumes be contiguous on disk: that's why it can relocate bad blocks under the hood, or resize partitions in the blink of an eye

12:44<rudi_s>However, I'm not sure if this works if you only copy the kernel over. You need all the modules as well and the simplest way to do that is to install the .deb (which will trigger building the initramfs automatically).

14:08<aloo_shu>the factoid should include an nvidia support email to pester -_-
14:10<lindylex>ANy reason why you are suggesting I uninstall the driver?
14:11<aloo_shu>because that's when your system started going wonky?
14:12<lindylex>True but my issue is I need the driver to run my displayport output.
14:12<aloo_shu>could try the community provided nouveau driver instead, but not sure which features it includes

14:15<aloo_shu>I mean, you can apparantly get a terminal, so you could try to find more info in journalctl, or to stop the systemd service for the display manager and see if you can fire up a gui session manually, or only a Xorg server with one xterm in it, using xinit

15:46<jmcnaught>lindylex: it is relevant because on some Optimus systems the external display ports are only connected to the discrete GPU and not the integrated one.
15:47<lindylex>jmcnaught : I just the entire page. I see what you are saying. In other words the VGA is the only hardware that should output is what you are saying?
15:48<lindylex>Not sure if I understand this all yet.
15:49<istrive>how make this command line more efficient ? find . -type f | while read f; do now=`date +%s`; old=`stat -c %Z "$f"`; days=`expr $now - $old`; echo "$f [" `expr $days / 86400` "] days old"; done
15:49<istrive>I intend to list files by age in days... ;)
15:50<sney>lindylex: note "some optimus systems" - it depends, there's a lot of variety in how it works, with the age of the computer and the vendor and many other factors
15:50<jmcnaught>lindylex: there are a lot of different hardware configurations that have been branded as "optimus" over the years, you may need to do some trial and error using the information from the NVIDIA Optimus Debian wiki page to figure out what software configuration is needed.
15:52<lindylex>After reading the page it looks like it wants me to edit the xorg.conf file. My confusion is I need to get X to start my desktop with the Nvidia driver. This is where Ia m getting stuck.
15:53<lindylex>Bumblebee Project look like it uses the Nvidia GPU and redirects its output to the Intel VGA. Is that correct?
15:53-!-Strelnikov [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
15:54<sney>the recommended use for optimus is to render the desktop with the intel gpu, then use the nvidia gpu to offload more intensive applications like gaming or accelerated video
15:54<jmcnaught>lindylex: there are different solutions that work for different Optimus hardware, you might need to try a couple before you find one that works. From the first paragraph of that page: "There appears to be no way to query the system for this information, which leaves trial and error: try the configurations for each hardware variant until one works."
15:55-!-debian329432 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
15:56<lindylex>Yes I read that and not afraid of the trial and error. I just need to get X to see there is a screen. Since this is what the errors are telling me in the logs. There are no screen detected. xorg.conf look like the file that help configure the screen and drivers.

16:06<aloo_shu>if you are in windowns, try to get the device manager up and trace which card is driving the hdmi, just to be sure.or do you only have the nvidia, no intel (in which case you can forget all the optimus/bumblebee story)?
16:07<lindylex>I have Intel VGA output hardware and Nvidia Displayport output hardware.

16:09<sney>the actual error would be further up
16:09<aloo_shu>'displayport' is a bit ambiguous, Xorg language would use "Monitor" - is the nvidia card an external card you added?

16:14<aloo_shu>I'd much rather expect the intel to drive both vga and hdmi, and the nvidia writing accelerated graphics into its fb, so if that's true, you'd want the *intel* driver to find the hdmi, and starting the wrong card would explain why it doesn't find anything to output to. If I had win7 running on the same box, with the hdmi working, I'd get the device manager and look it up

16:54<lindylex>I am not sure what information is desired from Device Manager.
16:55<jmcnaught>The idea was to try and find out if the DisplayPort on your laptop is wired directly to the discrete GPU or not, as is the case in some but not all Optimus systems.

17:13<sney>but nouveau is iffy on a lot of nvidia features
17:13<sney>!nouveau firmware
17:13<dpkg>Binary-only firmware for the nouveau <DRM> driver is packaged for Debian as firmware-misc-nonfree. Without this package installed, poor 2D/3D performance and/or missing video features in the <nouveau> xorg driver is commonly experienced. To install, ask me about <non-free sources>.

19:55<sney>you said yourself, the partition is not full
19:56<sney>are you changing your mind?
19:56<sney>if this is a new install, you should start over, and probably use a more current version of debian. debian 9 (stretch) only has support for 6 more months
19:56<PLT>No, that dies not make make sense at all. df -h I show you ealer / is only 1% full
19:57<PLT>Unless it made a different and smaller parition
19:58<sney>does df -h show a different partition mounted at /www ?
20:00<angasule>I have a thinkpad T14 AMD Gen 2 with a realtek 8852 wireless card, the new rtw89 module that was just merged into 5.16 should support it, but the 5.16 package in experimental (rc1 or rc2) don't seem to include it, does anyoen have an idea why?
20:00<sney>angasule: kernel packages in experimental are usually only there because the kernel team is testing something weird.
20:00<sney>when 5.16 is actually released by upstream and gets into sid, try again

20:24<sney>there is something broken in your mysql configuration, still. I see you have ispconfig, maybe the install script broke mysql somehow.
20:24<PLT>I need mysql in order to install ispconfig
20:25<sney>since you're using an old version of debian, it's possible that the ispconfig scripts are written for debian 10 or 11 and don't support 9 anymore

21:17<db2356>anyone know why?
21:19<db2356>must be because of the minimal install i did from netinst and just base packages, but sure what i'm missing

21:19<somiaj>db2356: cat /etc/network/interfaces -- do you see your inteface listed there?
21:22<db2356>yes i see it there
21:23<db2356>and i changed managed=true in /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
21:23<somiaj>network manager ignores devices managed by the debian intefraces file
21:24<somiaj>so you should just remove everything (or comment out) all devices except lo in that file, if you awnt ot manage things from network manager
21:24<somiaj>restart network manager (or your machine) after the change, and network manager will then manage that interface
21:25<db2356>that's what i thought too but i thought maybe debian 11 changed something because now the instructions just say to set managed=true in that file
21:25<db2356>but i'll comment those devices and see if that helps
21:26<somiaj>you could do that, which just overrides network manager ignoring that file, but then in that case you are now manaing the interface in two different ways, which is usually not suggested. Choose one or the other but not both
21:26<db2356>got it thanks for the help
21:27<db2356>oh also in case anyone knows, dmesg is littered with "nouveau 0000:01:00.0: mc: intr 00000040"
21:28<somiaj>Do you have any actuall isussues with your gpu that you notice with day to day use?
21:28<db2356>no i don't notice any issues. i do have a nvidia GPU i'd like to take advantage of eventually, but for now i just installed the normal system and it works fine

22:39<dpkg>[ab] Apache Benchmark. It gives you an idea on how the daemon processes documents. Be aware of the various overheads like disk I/O, network, and other things when you use it. Better yet, 'man ab'.
22:40<mason>um, that's not the one

22:45<dpkg>Slow down for a bit! Are you sure that you need to jump through that particular hoop to achieve your goal? We suspect you don't, so why don't you back up a bit and tell us about the overall objective... We know that people often falsely diagnose problems because they are too close to them -- it's easy to miss that there is a better way to proceed. See

22:49<Sqrt{Not}>OD, "first array entry feeds into the second, feeds into the third" is confusing to me. how does this work? what? can you give an example?

22:57<OD>mason: yeah... so in Bash you can do things like "$X" and it'll expand this and try to run it in that context
22:59<OD>Anyway Sqrt{Not} so imagine an array with 3 entries containing X, Y and Z - I want something which does "X | Y | Z". I was hoping for an operator but there appears to not be one so I was thinking recursion (so have f 0 do "array[$1] | f $( expr $1 + 1 )" if $1 +1 is a key, otherwise just array[$1] - but it seems messy. Looking for comments on other ways
23:00<mason>Feels like maybe Bash is the wrong target for your application.

23:02<Sqrt{Not}>OD, I don't understand again. {I want something which does "X | Y | Z"} what does it mean to pipe one variable to the next? what are you trying to do here?
