linux2i went to go overclock my system and it was working alright
then i decided that it was a tad bit to unstable to overclock so i went back down to the default cpu speed. and when i rebooted debian said that the root filesystem needed checking
so i ran the checks and it ended up changing a bunch of stuff, not sure exactly what
pickcoderlinux2: did you change your memory latency?
linux2it appears to have deleted KDE in that process and im wondering how i can recover from this. possible reinstall everything? not sure how to go about that though
Supaplexmost filesystems need a deep check every so many reboots, or sometimes after being flagged
linux2pickcoder: yeah, this is a 2.2ghz processor and i was able to get it up to 3.0ghz before it started to be really unstable
it appears to have adverse affects on the video card
Supaplexlinux2: you can reinstall packages. just apt-get install --reinstall foo
linux2pickcoder: the latency was set to 3
Supaplex: well i don't know which files it removed
pickcoderyou have to be careful when changing CAS settings and changing the bus speeds because it can lead to major data corruption
linux2so how would i reinstall everything?
pickcoderas you foudn out
~found
linux2Supaplex: kde is quitting out saying "couldn't start kdeinit. check your installation"
anyone know what package that is included with
pickcoderI run my X2 222Mhz over. Any higher and things start going south
linux2pickcoder: well temp wasn't the issue it just started doing bizzare things
pickcoderlinux2: I think kde is the meta package
linux2pickcoder: i tried to reinstall and it seems to only have installed one thing
~is there a way to search the apt-cache database and see what file contains kdeinit?
pickcoderapt-file
Supaplexthere's dpkg -S foo
apt-file is better for noninstalled packages (not to be confused with installed package, but missing files)
well, apt-file can do either, but it's usually slower due to the amount of data it has to chew
pickcodercheers
peterSit's not like dpkg -S is blazingly fast either though. that is why I have dlocate installed
hatterwhat should the procedure be, when after installing a package, something doesnt work because a file is missing ?
peterShatter: depends on what file is missing. normally file a bug against that package
hatterpeters: somewhere to check whether it should have been installed ?
obviously it shoud have, since it barfs because it cant find it
peterShatter: 'dpkg -L packagename' will tell you what files were installed
hatterpeterS: cool, its not in there
Garda_does the bittorent protocol implement compression at layer 4?
WyzardGarda_: Compression of the file data being transferred?
Garda_yea
k-manis it possible to shrink the size of an ext3fs partition?
WyzardGarda_: Unlikely... it'd be a waste of time since many files distributed by bittorrent are already compressed
Garda_: better to just compress the file and torrent the result, than to expect everyone's clients to compress and decompress things when sending them over the wire
