abrotmanCheef-Daniel: glad i could help
Insolit: you're running part sarge part etch
GuerinInsolit: change `stable' to `sarge'
or to `etch' if that's what you want to use
SzeraaxIs there a way to use the etch *now stable. YAY* install disc and install grub without installing etch?
Cheef-DanielI wish I know what this was
abrotmanCheef-Daniel: there was a cat in your tubez
Insolitthanks abrotman and Guerin
Cheef-Danielyesterday the same thing
googletrollhow do i install a package?
abrotmanman dpkg or man apt-get
asggoogletroll: aptitude install <pkg>
abrotmanor man aptitude
actiongoogletroll jokes
markyboboh that's hilarious
so much so you set off my heart monitor, you bastard
asgmarkybob: you hooked your heart monitor to irc?
mfrischmarkybob: better than your defibulator
markybobmfrisch: heh
Szeraaxanyone know? I want to use the debian install disc to install grub and not re-install debian. can i do it from the commnand line of the installer?
mfrisch!fix mbr
actiondpkg takes mbr to the vet for a "special" visit.
dpkgtakes mbr to the vet for a "special" visit.
dpkgSo you installed windows after debian, huh? Tssk. Boot to your debian install disk or whatever else you have, switch to the other console (alt-f2), then mount your root filesystem (mount -t ext2 /dev/whatever /target ; mount --bind /dev /target/dev ), then chroot into it (chroot /target) then run "mount /proc ; grub-install /dev/hda && update-grub"
Szeraaxfix mbr when?
markybobprobably ext3, though. if you installed with etch
although i guess it doesnt matter
Szeraaxthen my grub will detect then have deb, Backtrack, and win? right?
of course
k-manhas anyone ever heard of or seen a product for timing an irrigation system that is tcp/ip enabled?
Szeraaxthat would be cool
i bet it wouldnt be too hard to do...
Cheef-Danieldo you know why outgoing traffic is blocked on my rootserver between 1:00am and 4:00am? a serial rescue console is the only thing to establish a connection at this times
k-manSzeraax, yeah.... i need to set one up for my mum... and I can't be arsed having to go down stairs to adjust it
asgk-man: if thte irrigation system outputs information in a consistent way, some quick Perl-Fu should do the trick.
k-manasg, no, it just needs to control solenoids to do the watering
Szeraaxi agree with asg,
k-manasg, turn them off and on is all
