ranphaDo i get in a lot of problem if i use testing with a unstable package?
Flimzystew: cool. Where do I find the daily builds?
rahuljelly: as long as he doesn't change geometry, he'll be fine, right?
ranpha: maybe.
Flimzyor do I have to build one myself with jigdo or something?
stewFlimzy: http://debian.org/devel/debian-installer
rahulranpha: we can't predict that, in general.
Flimzystew: thanks
jahshuahow can i tell if my swap space is active? i think i might have messed up on the install... i put the swap space after my windows partition and then the root partition after the swap space.
Supaplexfree
stewjahshua: cat /proc/swaps
jahshuait only show /dev/hda5
:/
is that a major problem? i definitely partitioned the space.
pickcoderjahshua: does fdisk show the partition as swap type?
stewjahshua: so you have one swap partition. were you expecting to have more than just /dev/hda5 used as swap?
jahshuaoh wait, /dev/hda5 is my swap space ... i think.
stewjahshua: if it is in /proc/swaps, then it is being used as swapspace
jahshuaokay cool.
thanks!
pickcoderhm
fdisk doesn't like my swap partition
earthianjelly, i know you are a smart one. please tell me, if i change partition type from logical to primary, would it be possible to make it expand to the entire drive if there are no other primary partitions (only the logical one and extended)?

jahshuahey peeps whats the dpkg command to reconfigure my xserver? i just tried to install the artwiz cursor and it botched my /etc/X11/xorg.conf and now gdm wont load. :/

dpkgjahshua: dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 [or xserver-xorg if you're using X.org] (as root). If you have edited the X config file by hand, or used some other program like xf86config, ask me about <xmd5>
earthian!xmd5
dpkgIf you edit your X conffile, "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86" will no longer work. Run "md5sum /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 | diff -sq /var/lib/xfree86/XF86Config-4.md5sum -" - if the files differ, then it won't work. To fix this, "md5sum /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 > /var/lib/xfree86/XF86Config-4.md5sum" as root, then "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86", losing any manual changes you've made.
