vook
anyone know of a way to fix the nagging "SYSFS{}....please use ATTR{}= to match..." messages at boot ?
ml|
vook: what release?
timus
vook, is that the wacom from xorg?
vook
I've seen it in Lenny, now I'm in squeeze 2.6.32-trunk-686-bigmem. I've seen it with every kernel, custom or otherwise, that I've used for months now.
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=563243
it's a udev issue
ml|
I don't remember ever seen that
vook
It doesn't seem to cause any problems, but it definitely clutters up boot.
using "quiet" doesn't eliminate ti
maybe it is related to wacom - I don't have one though.
hmm, I'm going to disable /etc/udev/rules.d/z60..wacom and see what happens.
timus
is this what you are getting?
Mar 7 16:58:58 debian5 udevd[254]: SYSFS{}= will be removed in a future udev version, please use ATTR{}= to match the event device, or ATTRS{}= to match a parent device, in /etc/udev/rules.d/z60_xserver-xorg-input-wacom.rules:78
ml|
he left
timus
ah ok..
ml|, i think we chatted yesterday
just in case you are interested
the issue with rubberband selection not working was due to the mouse driver that comes with vbox
mettao87
hi guys.. I have a problem with synaptic touchpad. I just installed debian testing and now I can't open files with double click on the touchpad. Can you help me? thanks.
timus
or i should say the xorg.conf from lenny need to be changed in squeeze to make it to wokr
ml|
timus: glad you figured it out, I did not think it was debian related
timus
hmmm.... that smells like an xorg.conf issue mettao87
mettao87
timus: I think the same. but I can't find the xorg.conf file. in /etc/X11/ there is not.
timus
i hear like xorg server should be smarter now... can u try to remove xorg.conf? xorg should try to guess your hardware
oh i see
quaker66
timus, xorg.conf is not needed at all in squeeze
ml|
quaker66: most of the time, but some still need it when X can't get things right
timus
i should say, in most cases xorg.conf is not needed
quaker66
ml|, yes it was my case
i had to run Xorg -configure to generate a xorg.conf and then nvidia-xconfig.
timus
but you may need to have one depending on your hardware
quaker66
because without it it ran just for nv driver, nvidia drivers require xorg.conf
ml|
yes, but it has gotten better
timus
mettao87, can you copy the synaptic section from your old xorg.conf?
mettao87
I have not and old copy of xorg.conf. Debian squeeze is a new installation on my laptop, I formatted.
quaker66
mettao87, just stop any running X instance and run "Xorg -configure" under root.
ml|
you have the needed package for that to work?
quaker66
it generates file "xorg.conf.new" in current folder.
rename it to xorg.conf and move to /etc/X11
timus
how can i paste here again? I can share synaptic config for xorg.conf
mettao87
sorry, which are the instance who use X?

Do not paste more than 2 lines to this channel.

quaker66
ml|
mettao87: huh?
quaker66
mettao87, if you use GDM as your login manager, just switch to console and run "/etc/init.d/gdm stop" under root.
and the same for kdm or xdm or anything else. just replace the word in command.
Punisher
Hi, i'm trying to install Debian using a USB stick. I've had all sorts of problems until now when I got the debian-installer to boot from USB. But I noticed that the installer has changed, it needs to boot the cd-rom and cannot find my ethernet card. Very strange. How can I install debian manually?
mettao87
ok
Punisher
*mount the cd-rom
locklace
Punisher: what version of debian
Punisher
I've tried both stable and testing
quaker66
Punisher, easy. install unetbootin, download some debian iso, format the flash to fat32, run unetbootin, select "Debian" as distro, then "debian testing hd-media" or "debian stable hd-media" or whatever hd-media
let it make flash
you will see some files.
on the flash
locklace
Punisher: try a backport installer image, http://kmuto.jp/debian/d-i/
timus
metta could also check http://paste.debian.net/63402/
quaker66
copy there the iso so it is there with the files
and boot the flash
easy ;)
Punisher
quaker66: It's just that, if I had the old installers everything would've work. Debian Live works for example, but can't install from live.
locklace: Ok, i'll try that.
timus
all... in my daemon.log, i am getting the following
Mar 7 16:58:58 debian5 udevd[254]: SYSFS{}= will be removed in a future udev version, please use ATTR{}= to match the event device, or ATTRS{}= to match a parent device, in /etc/udev/rules.d/z60_xserver-xorg-input-wacom.rules:78
quaker66
timus, it says what you must do ;)
edit te file and replace SYSFS{} with that ATTR{} or ATTRS{}, based on what you need.
or install upgrades. it may solve automatically
timus
quaker66, what do you mean by install upgrades? I just updated my squeeze this morning... no dice
quaker66
hmm okay.
timus, well, now it is just a warning the function is deprecated.
i think there will be upgrade fixing it until new udev is in.
timus
ok, how can i clean it up for now?
use ATTR or ATTRS? not that i don't have have a wacom device
quaker66
just ignore it.
for now
timus
i removed this a while back....
quaker66
if you dont have wacom, you can safely remove that file imho :P
timus
via aptitude remove xserver-xorg-input-wacom
quaker66
try
and if it doesnt disappear, remove it manually
timus
i did get rid of him
but it installed the next aptitude safe-upgrade

:)
now* it is gone
jhutchins_lt
timus: You can safely remove xserver-xorg-input-all to keep it from reinstalling.
timus
ok thanks!...
i did that too....
removed xserver-xorg-input-all together with xserver-xorg-input-wacom

Question: If i remove PHP 5.3.x, and install the older 5.2.x deb, will i need debs for modules, or can i install libapache2-mod-php5 php-pear php5 php5-cgi php5-cli php5-common php5-curl php5-dev php5-gd php5-idn php5-imap php5-mcrypt php5-memcache php5-ming php5-mysql php5-ps
php5-pspell php5-recode php5-snmp php5-sqlite php5-suhosin php5-tidy php5-xmlrpc php5-xsl phpmyadmin squirrelmail squirrelmail-locales squirrelmail-viewashtml
with apt?
abrotman
cesurasean: why would you do that?
cesurasean
Zend Optimizer install problem. doesn't support 5.3
abrotman
shouldn't you complain to zend? hasn't php5.3 been out for ages ?
cesurasean
abrotman, the encoded php files have to be recoded with zend, since zend is built against 5.2
don't believe zend has came out with 5.3 fix yet
abrotman
cesurasean: and why are you running a server on squeeze/sid ? is this a public server ?
cesurasean
yes
because I need SNI.
abrotman
(Action) wants no part of this
cesurasean
lol
abrotman
it's not funny
cesurasean
why not?
:/
the question is will i have problems with the php modules as well? no?
bja
cesurasean: If you are looking for trouble, expect to find it. :|
cesurasean
it is also possible to install 2 different versions of php, correct?
quinque
@cesurasean: yes, you will. you've got to downgrade the whole php stuff
bja
!@
dpkg
@ is used to separate the username from the hostname in an email address, to denote channel operators on IRC, and to direct comments to particular users in some web forums. It is NOT used to direct comments on IRC; use "name: ..." instead of "@name ...".
cesurasean
quinque, that is as i suspected. i believe it can be done though.
abrotman
cesurasean: please don't ask us how to screw up your box .. you're creating a *very* insecure situation ..
quinque
@bja: like it so
cesurasean
abrotman, what do you suggest i do about the zend issue, then?
abrotman
cesurasean: stop doing dumb things with your PHP files

lobby
somebody know how to calculate across spreedsheets in openoffice
abrotman
burt_: why are you compiling ?
burt_
i need root mounted via nfs
abrotman
lobby: there's a #openoffice.org on irc.freenode.net .. but usually it's the same as excel
lobby
thanks
burt_
i thought i need CONFIG_ROOT_NFS set ..
sam1000
voip calls
burt_
the netinst kernel could not mount root via NFS, that's how this all started.
I wanted to recomplie to see if the problem was kernel configuration.
icebrain
!tell sam1000 about smart questions
sam1000
icebrain have idea abt voip calls; help
icebrain
sam1000: do you want software to make voip calls?
abrotman
sam1000: you need to ask an actual question
sam1000
yes my frnd
icebrain
sam1000: I heard nice thing about ekiga, but never tried it.
burt_
is there a .config i need to force build of tg3.ko?
sam1000
wht abt skype will it work
burt_
it is CONFIG_TIGON3=m in some .configs .. but when to go to build, that line is removed by the build and tg3.c just sits there
so .. anyone into this level of detail?
icebrain
sam1000: yes, but it doesn't come with Debian. You have to download the packages from Skype website
