unixp: no i mean download the source code for guitar pro and compile it
linuxman410
is there a beta download for debian 6 and where can i get it
Titan8990
!testing
dpkg
Testing is a continuously updated release between <stable> and <unstable>, currently codenamed <squeeze>. See http://wiki.debian.org/DebianTesting and ask me about <testing faq> <lenny->squeeze> <testing security> <moving target> <dda> <apt-listchanges> and <bts>. You should have a sound knowledge of Debian packaging to use testing and should be prepared for a bumpy ride at times. Don't use it on things that are critical or on servers.
Titan8990
linuxman410: if you are not familar with the concepts in <>, you should not try testing
babilen
linuxman410: http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/  but read what dpkg just said
ErNci
alright, anyone a iptables pro? :(
Titan8990
ErNci: #netfilter
babilen
ErNci: #netfilter ;)
ErNci
ty :)
shylent
iptables pro :P
anyone can be an iptables pro, just read 'man iptables'
CutMeOwnThroat
could a stack-size of 8192 be the reason iceweasel segfaults a shortish time after a starting?
Titan8990
CutMeOwnThroat: what version is segfaulting on you?
CutMeOwnThroat
oh, nice - I increased the limit and now it's segfaulting faster
babilen
hehe
CutMeOwnThroat
lenny - 3.0.6-3 according to dpkg...
well, that saves time, I guess
Titan8990
CutMeOwnThroat: work for me(tm)
CutMeOwnThroat
of course
it worked for me 3 weeks ago as well
jhutchins_lt
CutMeOwnThroat: I didn't have segfaults, but I had some memory leak issues and some hard-to-render pages so I went to the backport, which has been stable and functional.
Titan8990
CutMeOwnThroat: looks like #574449
CutMeOwnThroat
I guess it's my settings ~/.mozilla/ - part of which are the restore-data to restore the last session
now if my browser stays open long enough, I'll look at that bug
Titan8990
CutMeOwnThroat: perfect time to install w3m-el
CutMeOwnThroat
right now it's frozen instead of segfaulted - not sure if I should call this an improvement
this morning I even had to press the reset-button because the machine didn't respond, even to ping (according to /var/log/messages it was running fine and writing MARKs into the log) there's only one rational explanation for all this: Gremlins
fanani
Hi all , do know how install debian lenny with live cd
CutMeOwnThroat
Titan8990, that bug's not all-too-helpful
fanani
i'm after download debian live cd , but after i try , not icon to install
do u help me
?
babilen
fanani: The live cd is not used for installations.
fanani
before theank :D
Titan8990
CutMeOwnThroat: I know, but shows that its a known issue. You might want to pick up on it, since it looks like the orginal submitter has not followed through with the maintainers request
babilen
!tell fanani about netinst
fanani
owh
and then , what me doing ?
Titan8990
!tell fanani about ig
babilen
fanani: You might also want to read the installation guide - "/msg dpkg ig" to get the URL
CutMeOwnThroat
Titan8990, well, I was going to do what they suggested anyway - go to a fresh profile (well, or at least stop using the restore function)
fanani
Am i must download debian except live cd
Titan8990
fanani: the livecd is _not_ an installer
fanani
ok
thankj,
before i'm sory because I'm a new user of debian
:D
Titan8990
thats why we are here
babilen
fanani: No problem - Just read the installation guide and come here if you have questions :)
Liquid-Silence
howdy Titan8990 :)
Titan8990
Liquid-Silence: afternoon
Liquid-Silence
Titan8990: evening here :) but how are you doing?
Titan8990
Liquid-Silence: you should join #debian-offtopic for this kind of chat
janis
Hi guys!! After an update on my system, konqueror displays following problem with a large statusbar: http://imagebin.ca/view/gNmMYD.html Is this something common and easily fixable?
Titan8990
janis: that looks a hell of a lot like opensuse...
fanani
can u watch this : certainty
i'm sory
janis
Titan8990, that is definately debian sqeeze
:p
Rayne
is it possible to search for the package which created the user foo?
fanani
i'm bad a copy
shylent
looks like windows 7 to me ! :P
not really
CutMeOwnThroat
that seems to have worked... it's MINUTES since the last crash
Titan8990
fanani: if english is not your native language, you might be able to get better help in one for your native language
fanani
can u wath this : fanani.pastebin.com/EiFccwqA
i issue more proble after update debian
|STF|
hi guys
fanani
this : http://fanani.pastebin.com/EiFccwqA
babilen
fanani: You want to use different mirrors - "/msg dpkg mirrors" for the list
janis
Can I temporarily instruct aptitude to use only stable repositories for a single session, w/o having to edit sources.lst?
fanani
ok , i want tray
Titan8990
janis: you are mixing debian releases?
babilen
fanani: And as a sidenote: aptitude is the default package manager for lenny (and not apt-get) and I would encourage you to use it.
janis
Titan8990, yes, whatever works :p
Titan8990
janis: wait... are you the refuse to update kernel and udev problem?
karlpinc
janis: Yes. There's an apt option for a filename instead of sources.lst.
janis
Titan8990, yep
thx karlpinc, i'll search it
Titan8990, well, if you are curious I can tell you how it went
Titan8990
janis: I am not curious
|STF|
Does someone knows an alternativ to hostapd? Cause i have the problem that i have an usb-wlan-stick form msi , which use the rt2870 is not supported by hostapd
fanani
i'm sorry friend , because i'm after reade tutorial of ubuntu
:D
babilen
fanani: Just telling you - apt-get works fine on Debian too :) (/msg dpkg why aptitude and /msg dpkg why not aptitude)
janis
well, bottom line, I have what I want now, so I consider it a success. even though it could probably not have been sthing officially advised :p
fanani
and then now : http://fanani.pastebin.com/WmDde2CU
Titan8990
!tell janis about moving target
fanani: babilen suggested you try a different mirror. you have not changed mirrors
fanani
titan, . . thank . I want search other loka miror
babilen
!tell fanani about mirrors
fanani
:D
babilen
!tell fanani about sources.list
fanani
babilen : i want copu paste my miror on pastebin
janis
Titan8990, I am happy with testing, but thanks :) So far I had few problems, and I had been enjoying kde4 which is not released afaik in the lenny version.. and other stuff. It is a tradeoff I am willing to deal with. I just like to not play by the rules, and the tools available should be allowing nme to do whatever I want, as long as they warn me of the possible consequences. That's the whole open source mentality as I perceive it :p And I
respect what you have been warning me this far :))
babilen
paste your /etc/apt/sources.list - but *you* need to decide which mirror you want to use. Or you can go with the default "http://ftp.<cc>.debian.org/debian lenny main [contrib] [non-free]" where you replace <cc> with your country code
fanani
babilen :
fanani.pastebin.com/wyQdW0qA
http://fanani.pastebin.com/wyQdW0qA
it's my source /etc/apt/source.list
babilen
fanani: yes - the kambing.ui.edu mirror does not work, so you need to use a *different* one.
fanani: Are you sure that you want proposed-updates in there?
janis
does testing only provide one version of each package?
babilen
fanani: and you repeat the volatile entry
janis: yes, the newest
Titan8990
janis: all repositories only provide one version at a given time
|STF|
Does someone knows an alternativ to hostapd? Cause i have the problem that i have an usb-wlan-stick form msi , which use the rt2870 is not supported by hostapd. Is there an alternativ driver?
Titan8990
janis: debian is not typically a moving target like testing
fanani
babilen : i sure
janis
Titan8990, I see...
fanani
babilen : it miror is a large in my place
:D
babilen
fanani: but it is not working apparently
janis
Can I find older testing versions in a separate repository for that specific purpose?
fanani
babilen : are u know about it issue ,
|STF|
Can someone help me with hostapd?
fanani
babilen : if u know about this issue , i will send a report to this mirror
poochief
my debian machine has been acting kind of slow... any ideas?
Rezagrats
Nvm, i had Cool'n'Quiet on. ;p
abrotman
!flw
dpkg
<snadge> i want to create a version of debian that violates as many patents as possible, and is crammed full of non free software and warez.. call it debian warez edition. what do you think? :P
laurus
I'm on Debian Squeeze with Xfce. For some reason the wireless manager, Wicd, cannot obtain an IP address from almost any wireless router. Does anyone know what is causing this problem?
aguitel_
laurus, try with network-manager
HackeMate
hello
laurus
aguitel, is that a command line network manager?
Oh, I see, it's the GNOME one. Ok!
HackeMate
I am worried by my son, he is using msn and closes its door, also doesn't let me to know who is he talking with, or what is he doing, is very worried if i appear closer to its computer, is there a good sniffer for my lan for msn?
aguitel_
laurus, in root:aptitude install network-manager
Rezagrats
If for some reason i couldn't see the OK/Apply button in Screen Resolution prefences, what key combo would i use?
unixp
where can i adjust the launch application if i want easily to open a directory?
if i choose "open the directory" it gets the launch application where i have to choose an application...
where can i find die File Manager adjust to set it to default?
babilen
laurus: Take a look at the wicd.log before installing network-manager
fruitwerks
anyone good with sed? http://pastebin.com/15sggb1s I can't figure this out
CutMeOwnThroat
there isn't a udev in bpo to use together with 6.3.32?
[Jasper]
hej guys, is there a php4 package for debian?
keith4
fruitwerks: escape the $
!tell [Jasper] about search
fruitwerks
keith4 yeah.. like \$ ?
[Jasper]
I did a search keith4
fruitwerks
nope
keith4
[Jasper]: http://packages.debian.org/php4
abrotman
[Jasper]: not in lenny or above
CutMeOwnThroat
fruitwerks, /
keith4
fruitwerks: and terminate your s expression
CutMeOwnThroat
no, he didn't escape \ or use a different character to separate
but it's not really a debian question, is it?
fruitwerks
I have been stuck on this for two hours.. and no, I just thought someone would know
CutMeOwnThroat
oh, you're right, keith4 the next thing is supposed to be the filename
I thought it's part of the pattern :)
fruitwerks
(Action) I always get hung up on the simplest things
keith4
fruitwerks: you don't need to be "good with sed" to read the error message that sed spits out
CutMeOwnThroat
he he
reading error messages is uncool
fruitwerks
yeah I have searched for examples and everything is like way compliacted
CutMeOwnThroat
not
sigh - and seems build-dependencies for udev from testing demand I install a newer libc6
fruitwerks
I keep finding examples that use awk and pipe it through sed like 8 times
and they don't apply to me lol
CutMeOwnThroat
it's not really hard, though
fruitwerks
can you find an example that applies to my situation?
CutMeOwnThroat
we told you what's wrong
or keith4 did
fruitwerks
yes escaping.. I can't find anything that makes sense
wols
CutMeOwnThroat: the bpo 2.6.32 should work fine with your lenny udev
CutMeOwnThroat
no, terminate the damn expression with a /
wols
CutMeOwnThroat: and just cause some dependency says it needs a newer libc6, doesn't make it true
CutMeOwnThroat
wols, modules aren't loaded automatically - or at least I don't have sound which suggests that they aren't
wols
just try it with lenny libc6
CutMeOwnThroat
wols, yes, I know - but hard to figure which of the other dependencies I need as there's obviously some dependencies I don't
fruitwerks
.. and I get $HOME as my replacement :(
keith4
fruitwerks: sed 's/old/new/'
CutMeOwnThroat
fruitwerks, you never said what you wanted to do
fruitwerks
and new is $HOME not what echo $HOME returns
CutMeOwnThroat
you're also a bit offtopic here - if you want to ask this, pleas ask the whole question so we can answer you
keith4
isn't there a #sed?
fruitwerks
yes, but I have pissed everyone off
themill
fruitwerks: use " not '. And /msg dpkg sed help
fruitwerks
lol
meh
[Jasper]
thx abrotman
iceroot
how to see all dependencies a program have? (with sub-dependencies like a depends on b which depens on c)
CutMeOwnThroat
,pciid 00:10.1
fruitwerks
sed 's/%USERHOME%/$HOME' files/gm_conf > /root/test.log | replace %USERHOME% with the output of echo $HOME
wols
iceroot: apt-rdepends
iceroot
wols: thx
wols
CutMeOwnThroat: that's no pci id, that's a pci address on the bus
CutMeOwnThroat
I noticed :)
but after loading the correct module + snd-pcm-oss, I still can't use /dev/dsp although it's there
grmp
oh, that's why: hda-intel: cannot find the slot for index 0 (range 0-1), error: -16 // Error creating card! //HDA Intel: probe of 0000:00:10.1 failed with error -16
perhaps I just go back to the older kernel
Titan8990
CutMeOwnThroat: your having a lot of trouble today
gutek999
hi
themill
fruitwerks: use " not '. s requires three delimiters "s/pat/sub/" but you only have two. Use , or # rather than / for the delimiter.
gutek999
except instaling alsa do i need anything more to have sound on debian ?
Titan8990
themill: you should note he was getting help in #bash and this is _not_ the channel he was told to go to
CutMeOwnThroat
Titan8990, well, the machine didn't respond this morning, I had to reboot - I booted into the new kernel which I had installed (because of other problems), but not used... and since then there's trouble :)
