Solakjcole: tried to install some, and came to the conclusion that some were installed already
jcolejelly-home: i agree, piping to sh is a bit hackish
holycowhow does one destroy data in the former partitions on an hd? i.e. force a low level format i guess without doing a dd on the whole thing
? even
eldowanholycow: drop the drive from the roof
itchiSolak have the same troubles about these fonts paths in the xorg.conf file ...
actionholycow gives eldowan a vowel
holycowgives eldowan a vowel
anyone else?
:)
jelly-homejcole: you could put it anywhere before /etc/init.d/networking is callde or even add it into the script itself
eldowanholycow: you could use shred, though that would take longer than a dd
SDBolts21n56can any tell me a good program to find system hardware info. like processor type and speed, amout of memory?
jcoleholycow: shred
holycowah well then okay at least there is an option
Solakjcole: 75/100dpi, scalable, base, encodings and utils
eldowanSDBolts21n56: /proc/cpuinfo /proc/foo
jelly-homejcole: the cleanest way would be to write a separate script and link as /etc/rc?.d/S* so that it starts before networking
jcoleSolak: aptitude is quite clever and is what the debian installer uses for installing packages
pickcoderholycow: you can't low-level format a drive like you used to be able to
Solakjcole: yeah, I notice...
eldowanSDBolts21n56: or you could use something like bginfo
abrotmanpickcoder: some of them have tools to do it
jcole!shred
dpkgshred, rap, powd, dude
abrotman!dban
dpkgwell, dban is http://dban.sf.net/ Darik's Boot and Nuke ("DBAN") is a self-contained boot floppy that securely wipes the hard disks of most computers. DBAN will automatically and completely delete the contents of any hard disk that it can detect, which makes it an appropriate utility for bulk or emergency data destruction.
keith80403I installed and removed Bugzilla from Sarge - now, dpkg -l shows "rc" as Desired/Status - is bugzilla removed or pending removal, or what?
pickcoderabrotman: yes, some of them do. But some of them also store data recovery information on the platters
holycowpickcoder, ah really?
Solakjcole: anyway, in kde the fonts still look real bad...
jahshuaback. :)
kraehemoin ... i'm trying to install enterprisedb (a postgresql derivate that claims higher oracle compatibility) and run into the problem, that it requires termcap by checking ldconfig -p ... any idea if this old termcap (not terminfo) is in etch?
eldowanpickcoder: why can't you do a low level format as in days of lore?
Solakjcole: and I have no solution. aliasing: fuzzy fonts, not aliasing: fonts that look broken (holes in the letters and real ugly).
larslHow do you check which package an installed file belongs to?
bzedkraehe: termcap is a piece of *cough*. if you're on i386, you can install it from sarge
larslThe equivalent to RPM-based systems' rpm -qf
bhundvenlarsl: dpkg -f /usr/bin/vim
larslThansk.
