of course, i'm just trying to figure out how to configure it now
does anybody here work lags often?
(link aggregation) not network pings
no lag experts eh?
owell, plan B.
When configuring an etherbond, I know I can use 2 different ethernet cards just like I can use 2 different hard drives when building a raid, but what would the drawbacks be if they are both 1Gbps
LACP not, RR
brbrbr
oh, wait, "plan B" is SSM nike sub ?
should Debian team start construct/build one ?:)
PyroPhelia
I highly recomend it
nobody would ask "why doesn't debian have X" anymore
robokop
my down key doesn't work in X, in tty it does, any hints?
abrotman
wrong X keymap ?
robokop
abrotman: where is the X keymap set?
izua
is it possible to have a virtual network interface, so that if i write something to a file, it shows up as rx data, and if i tx data over the stack, this data shows up in another file?
i'm trying to develop an ethercat (industrial protocol) slave
all i found was adding multiple ips for an interface in the form of eth0:1, eth0:2 which is not what i want

izua: google tun/tap

hi
can I use an TPM chip for storing gnupg secret key and doing encryptions with it?
i dont want the OS to be able to read the privkey
MarkGil
hi, Debian base seems to want to use rsyslogd, which is consuming vast amounts of memory on my embedded system, for something that provides a trivial function. Is there a better replacement, or a way of making rsyslogd leaner?
30MB for an event log service is bloated to the extreme :-(
tuv
acpid is causing high cpu usage after a few hours every time it's restarted. once it's restarted cpu usage goes back to normal for a few hours then it spikes again until the next acpid restart. has anyone seen this behaviour recently? any known fixes?
tongueroo
when i ssh into the box as root, my ~/.bashrc settings dont load... if i start a bash shell after login in the customizations load, any idea why the ssh login doesnt load the ~/.bashrc settings?
Arrowmaster
MarkGil: have you looked at what emdebian uses?
babilen
MarkGil: There are several different syslog daemons shipped with Debian. Try sysklogd or 'apt-cache search syslog' and evaluate your options
tuv
what do i lose by shutting down acpid?
teclo-
Hi, I would like to increase the brightness in a xvid video. What application can do that ? Thank you
tuv
teclo-: you can do that at playback time using any decent video player (read mplayer)
robokop
i have some problems with my xkeymap, where can i find my xkeymap?
tuv
teclo-: man mplayer: keys 3 and 4 adjust brightness
teclo-
tuv: ah ok but I would like to modify the video because it's too dark, shot at night
robokop
teclo-: perhaps mencoder can help you out
babilen
!tell robokop -about keymap
teclo-
tuv: robokop thanks
pjj
anyone else has problems with wicd-curses btw on debian unstable? (shuts down with an error, the gui client works fine)
babilen
tongueroo: Is bash not your default shell on the remote host?
tongueroo
its the default, ive checked /etc/passwd
and echo $SHELL
karl_k
hi ! anyone here know how to restart bluetooth upon resume ?
babilen
pjj: check the BTS
KnuckOne
tongueroo: echo 'source ~/.bashrc' >> ~/.bash_profile
babilen
tongueroo: you should put it into .bash_pro .... ah nvm
tongueroo
KnuckOne : oh duh
thanks
:)
robokop
babilen: the problem is i changed from a x86 to a amd64 install but i have backups from the old install and i would like to find my old keymap and use that one
karl_k
putting a script in /etc/pm/sleep.d/ does not work
pjj
babilen: dunno how to copy paste from my urxvt but it has an attribute error (wiredcombobox has no attribute set_w)
unbounded11
hi friends. what should i choose for dynamic dns for my adsl so i can connect with openvpn any of you friends using one that can recommend which go good with debian lenny
babilen
robokop: and you can't remember which one that was?
karl_k
hi unbounded11, dyndns has always been good for me
robokop
babilen: nope
unbounded11
karl_k: thanks friend. btw it free is not it?
karl_k
yes
well it was when i used to use it
robokop
babilen: because in my last install it defaulted to a correct keymap
babilen
robokop: Then just pick a suitable one. That might depend on the keyboard model and the language(s) you frequently type in.
unbounded11
so i need to install its linux server daemon and conf it and run it and thats it.
karl_k
yep, there is a dynamic update daemon afaik
pjj
babilen: nvm thought you ment with BTS back trace or something, but you were refering to the debian bug tracking system, my bad
karl_k
aptitude search dyndns
btw, why not go for a static ip ?
unbounded11
karl_k provider doesnot support static ips
so
karl_k
well dyndns was fine for me, they are reasonable people, in case you want to run some servers
:)
hmm, so anyone know how to restart bluetooth on resume ?
unbounded11
karl_k i only need it for 1 machine and gona run openvpn and apache on it. i hope it will not get charged or have problem with it.
path_
openvpn works well
I'd say its slower than ipsec
karl_k
unbounded11: dyndns would not care,, openvpn is encrypted so your provider cant see what you do and apache is not usually a problem
babilen
pjj: sorry ... should have spelled that out :-)
karl_k
unbounded11: what do you use openvpn for ?
MarkGil
if I wanted to restrict rsylog resource usage using ulimit, how would i do so? There is a vague reference here (that does not actually tell you how to do it), http://wiki.rsyslog.com/index.php/Reducing_memory_usage
babilen
MarkGil: Why don't you have a look at the alternatives. sysklogd will most probably have a smaller memory footprint. The idea to check what embedian uses was also quite good.
MarkGil
I checked embedian, and it uses rsyslog!
babilen
You are sure that it is the default syslogd?
MarkGil
it was the only package that came up when I searched for syslog
babilen
Try the others and pick the one you like best. :-D
acu
how can I transfer files through xchat
ed__
I made XMind go crazy and consume lots of resources so I ran killall Java. Some workbooks didn't open after that so I hoped it was Java or XMind that wasn't working after that and exitted GNOME. Now GNOME won't log out cleanly and oops, I've got some unsaved stuff in gedit. Any ideas on how to keep hold of the gedit stuff?
Usually, it would prompt me to save, right?
GNOME is being totally unresponsive
Well, it doesn't seem to be reacting to my mouse much anyway
Aha!
Problem solved.

antgel
i've just connected a lenny box to an LCD TV with resolution 1366x768, and pretty low DPI (say around 50?) my fonts in certain apps look crap. e.g. rxvt and openoffice are fine. iceweasel is fine except for the menu bar and url bar. picard and easytag are almost unusable. clue anybody?
simonrvn
what's with the "pls msg me foo" stuff lately?
antgel
NB i'm not using kde or gnome
simonrvn: hi
simonrvn
hey antgel
antgel
all good in the hood i hope :)
simonrvn
up your dpi and maybe reduce the res.
yup, here anyway
KnuckOne
yeah, also "man fonts.conf" should help
simonrvn
antgel: how 'bout you, doin' ok?
antgel
simonrvn: hmm, 1366x768 is native res. i wish i could leave dpi at the native setting, what i don't get is why some fonts are readable, and some are scrawny
KnuckOne: can doodly-do
simonrvn: yeah, bit of a crappy year, been in a sort of self-inflicted limbo but my load has lightened (oo-er) and things looking up
simonrvn
good, so not great but improving. that's encouraging =)
Penix
I've always avoided 1366x768 on my 32" LCD TV. everything looks so much better at 1280x720
Arrowmaster
if you arent using kde or gnome maybe some of the fonts are being anti-aliased while others arent

antgel
xrandr reports 59.8 dpi. let's call it 60. but the weird thing is, it's 32" wide, and 1366/32 is more like 43. weird
Arrowmaster
what gfx card?
antgel
Arrowmaster: the crap fonts are so *tiny*, it's hard to say if they're being anti-aliased

Drunken_Irony
i'm using a core i7 processor, which type of debian should i download for the usb installer?
amd64 or ia64?
abrotman
not ia64 .. either amd64 or i386
Drunken_Irony
i want to use the 64 bit
markybob
Drunken_Irony, then amd64, as ia64 wont work
abrotman
okay .. amd64 .. ia64 isn't for your machine
Drunken_Irony
ahhh
the amd threw me off
:)
is there also a 150 meg or so iso that i can download for that as well?
markybob
Drunken_Irony, yes. netisnt
Drunken_Irony
i'm on vista right now
markybob
Drunken_Irony, dont care

xNinja
hey...
i was connected with no problem through wireless but after i plugged the cable i think the default route has been changed to use the wired network, but i want to use the wireless network as my default route, because wired network has no internet
antgel
xNinja: are you using network manager?
xNinja
no all through shell
markybob
xNinja, so specify it in your route command. sudo route add default gw 192.168.1.1 wlan0 (for example)
antgel
xNinja: and it's set correctly in /etc/network/interfaces?
(as in, no gateway on the wired network)
edgardo-laptop
hi
xNinja
antgel its not debian :P
abrotman
then why are you asking here?
markybob
abrotman, that's like asking a child where babies come from
xNinja
i guess its route problem so no matter what os ?
markybob
idiots are...well...idiots
xNinja, go away
xNinja
markybob try to talk nicely...
abrotman
xNinja: go to the correct channel for your Linux distro, this isn't it
braunkraut
xNinja: it is a route problem, but with debian init scripts there are ways to adjust the metric using the post-up interface scripts that probably aren't available in antgel
man route
themill
antgel: you've become a linux distro too now, it seems. Hope you enjoy that.
xNinja
lol
i solve it thanks anyway!
ootput
regarding that routing issue, how would he have addressed that via interfaces?

Gm4n
I just updated my system, and mdadm doesn't show my raid device anymore. How do I recreate it? I know what volumes were in it, but I don't want to lose my data...
is there a way to scan and automatically recreate the raid?
CodeWeaver
most raid controllers, even cheap ones are able to recreate the raid under the raid setup after POST
qwd
If I copy something in a terminal with screens copy mode (Ctrl-a H Space Pagedown Space) how can I paste this in a Gnome app? When I do Ctrl-v I paste an url I copied earlier.
Gm4n
it's a software raid, not a harware raid
CodeWeaver
ah!
elik
can't I use slocate to find files larger than a certain size?
Gm4n
so anyway, mdadm.conf still defines my device md0, but /proc/mdstat doesn't show anything (nor does mdadm -D /dev/md0)
CodeWeaver
you could always pop them in a FreeNAS and rebuild the software RAID
Gm4n
well, the raid didn't fail, I just did a kernel update and it wasn't automatically created on reboot
no drive went bad
