jamesukthen chroot?
Titan8990jamesuk, yes
Titan8990jamesuk, well, did you mount proc the first time?
Titan8990jamesuk, also give this a try: mount -t none proc /mnt/proc
Titan8990jamesuk, prior to chroot
dmznm., was nscd interfering with it
jamesukTitan8990: I think I mounted /proc the first time. However, I've just chroot'ed with out the "mount -t none proc /mnt/proc".
Titan8990yeah, you can chroot without either one, but may have trouble doing things
jamesukOK, I will reboor again and try. But in the mean time I've just tried re-installing the linux-image and it didn't work. Rebooting now.
jamesukTitan8990: "mount -t none proc /mnt/proc" failed with error "mount: Mounting proc/ on /mnt/proc/ failed: No such device"
jamesukLooking at the console / proc is there and it contains a number of entries. So amd consused why it didn't mount.
Titan8990jamesuk, sorry, but I have to run now
Titan8990jamesuk, I suggest moving over to #debian on
jamesukTitan8990: Thanks for all your help.
Titan8990jamesuk, np, I will still be around just need to get some work done
jamesukOK, thanks. I'm going to keep going.....

cahoothe's long gone
rufensisAfter an update yesterday I now have a networking problem.  I can longer connect to the ubuntu machine I use as a media server.  The machine that was updated runs lenny with a 2.6.30 kernel.  Basically where I used to see the mount for the ubuntu machine, all I see now is Windows Network and when I click on it I am prompted for a password - only none of mine work.  
Titan8990rufensis, where did you get the .30 kernel for lenny?
rufensisTitan8990: I messed up above.  I'm actually using Squeeze.  The kernel I got some time ago.  Backports?  I think.  I did not have to compile it myself.
Titan8990rufensis, what protocol is the media server running? cifs?
rufensisTitan8990: it has libsmbclient installed.  Is that what you mean?
Titan8990rufensis, how do you access the media server?
rufensisTitan8990: always through a linksys router, and the sever is connected to it by ethernet.  The laptop client used to connect through wireless and ethernet, both machine's devices are managed by network manager.
Titan8990rufensis, there are tons of file transfer protocols... you could be uses SMB/CIFS, FTP, HTTP, avahi, or any number of different methods of accessing files on a different server
Titan8990rufensis, which do you use?
rufensisTitan8990: how can I query that from my system?  I have never had to adjust anything to either machine.  They both just worked together and discovered each other before.

snifferHi All. Any powerpc experts out there? I'm experiencing strange framebuffer and keyboard problems on an IBM 44p-170 after upgrading.
faheemanyone know why debhelper does that and what it means?
Titan8990faheem, does what?
faheemTitan8990: 12:17 -!- mode/#debian [+l 391] by debhelper
faheemwhat's it doing?
rufensisTitan8990: I am almost sure I am using smb for the protocol.  I can at least see shares on the laptop client when I click on networks on the ubuntu machine.  It shows a Print share on the debian laptop and under properties "smb://" in the location.
faheemfor clarity, i'm referring to debhelper the channel bot :-)
metalqgafaheem raises the limit for users who can join the #?
themillfaheem: changing the limit to the number of people in the channel -- preventing bot floods
Titan8990rufensis, I don't use SMB/CIFS, nor do I know much about it
Titan8990rufensis, when you upgraded did it alter your /etc/smb.conf or w/e it is?
rufensisTitan8990: not that I know of
rufensisTitan8990: what do you use?
Titan8990rufensis, NFS or http/webdav
Titan8990avahi looks interesting but I have got around to trying it
rufensisTitan8990: I used to use NFS and then a year ago or so on an older machine I was having trouble and someone in this forum told me NFS was obsolete.  NFS-common is installed on my laptop.  
Joshd1910can sum1 tell me where i can learn to use debian?
dpkgBefore asking in here or on the debian-user mailing list, you should read the Installation Guide, or if you already have Debian installed, the Debian Reference.  Ask me about <ig>, <reference>, <docs>, <manuals>, <fundamentals>, <newbiedoc>, <refcard>, <faq>, <unix lessons>, <general cli tutorial>. (e.g. in your IRC client, type /msg dpkg reference)
jamesukTitan8990: I managed to get some where with my problems. I needed to mount /dev/pts, then aptitude purge linux-image and then re-installed. The system will boot to grub but I just need to work out how to enter the phasephrase to decrypt the LVM. Looks like I need to add some additional info to grub menu.lst. Thanks for the help.
Titan8990jamesuk, good to hear
Titan8990rufensis, FTP is also "obsolete"
Titan8990rufensis, but you see how widely used that is
Titan8990nothing compares to FTP or NFS speed
rufensisTitan8990: True.  Do you know if nfs and smb interfere with each other.  Do I need to strip my systems of smb to make nfs work?  I wouldn't mind having the "Windows network" icon gone.
Joshd1910would getting rid of windows be a good idea?
fdutrahey you!
Xenguy(is there anybody out there)

fdutrai understand, so why do you use custom kernels?
dkslush: so my question here is when i use clear command or changing tty using ctr+alt+F2 so on.. then its clearing the framebuffer .
fdutrayou can use the linux like you use the windows ... no have fear
fdutramine is working ... cntrl + alt + f(number)

Guest2463hello, i'm trying to build iceweasel from source, but when I build it I get Shiretoko, If I wanted Shiretoko, I wouldn't have downloaded the source from debian!
Guest2463what I'm really asking is, there is a .diff file, that I think should make this into iceweasel before the build, problem is, I don't know how to use it

dpkgAs an overview: to work with Debian source packages, add a <deb-src> line to your sources list; cd to a location with free space; download the source package with <apt-get source>; edit <debian/rules> to taste; use <dpkg-buildpackage> to build the new .deb.  For more details, also ask me about <package recompile> <backport> <nmg> <policy>

icarusAnyone got some pointers on how to deal with an unresponsive laptop keyboard during installation ? I can plug in a USB keyboard but that way I won't know if the keyboard (on the laptop) will ever work. Any general tips/pointers ? (Specifically, it's a Macbook Pro 5,1 unibody)
kopicarus: All I know is that there are settings for keyboard detection, somewhere.
icaruskop: what do you mean ?
icarusPerhaps I should elaborate a little. The keyboard works in the initial boot menu, but as soon as the kernel is loaded and the ncurses menus take over, the keyboard is unresponsive.
kopicarus: There are parameters you can pass to the kernel that have something to do with the keyboard, and there's also something in /etc/console* (maybe) that does something as well.  But I don't know what.  So, the answer is 'maybe'.
locklaceicarus: installation of what
babilenicarus: you could also try the graphical installer. It might work there.
icarusI think I'm going to start building a list of kernel parameters and going from there :)
kopicarus: This page says a firmware update will help.  (But I don't know if it's for a 5.1)
icaruskop: thanks :) But it seems to be the older MBP's (4 point something) based on the picture he included of his laptop
kopicarus: It might possibly have to do with this:
icarusMight be, but I'm leaning a bit for this Someone posted that his laptop (a vostro, though) exhibited the same problems until he configured things to pass this kernel parameter. But it doesn't seem to work, I don't know if your link will either as some talk of Macbook 2,1 which is about as different from my Macbook 5,1 as any other laptop ;) I guess I'll have to find a USB harddrive to m
jbergler Hey wondering if someone could provide some assistance with some linking issues with shlibdeps, im trying to build some packages with a base and module debs, the lib files from the base package are missing from the module packages but this causes the build to fail. the lib path i need to set is essentially $(CURDIR)/debian/kamailio/usr/lib i think
