wolsthere you can set a env variable
sinizzlassasukasse: the problem is the config file itself.
udoswols: I just got done explaining why I don"t want to do that
assasukasseah
argonicronr: You could always just fix the install script in /var/lib/dpkg/info/<pkg>.preinst
sinizzlmore disconcerting, i can't connect to it with mymacbook... when it used to work it was only with my neighbours windows notebook~
argonicronr: I've been known, in times of GREAT frustration, to put "exit 0" as the second line =)
ronrargonic: I'll take a look at that (I'll probably be able to fix itthat way)
:)
argonicIt's not much of a fix, I know, but sometimes it lets you get past dpkg long enough to let the package manager sort things out more permanently
TiGZVasistha: Doesn't buisness card installation = bad drivers support?
Vasisthaudos: I did a google.com/linux search for: change init environment
wolstigz: no. the kernel is always the same. same support
TiGZok
ronrjust too bad the preinst script isn't there, how do I keep the deb from deleting the script if it fails?
TiGZSo eg usb drivers like thumb drives etc
Azarudos: we get the base system setup by installing Debian and on that complete base set, we have the freedom to install all eye-candy we want from the repositories that contain also other gpl-ed applications: gnome, kde, beryl, openoffice. From that moment up I would assume the "desktops" take care of their area of configurations...
sinizzlproblem being, i somehow screwed up my hostapd.conf and don't know how i got it working after all.....
Vasisthatigz: the difference is that the 160 MB net install cd actually contains an entire base system, so you can install a working debian system without using an internet connection. The business card cd requires a net connection, just to set up a base system.
humboldtI have a disk space problem, which I would like to solve using gzip.
Vasisthahumboldt: what kinds of files are taking up all your space?
binfalseunsure
humboldtI have 50GB of uncompressed logs on the one machine.
now
wolshumboldt: logs created over what period of time?
TiGZok
udosAzar: I understand. But I really want to modify the environment for all apps in one file
Vasisthahumboldt: keep in mind bzip2 can compress better, and 7zip may be even better (although not as universally supported)
humboldt(can't get rid of the logs, need them) I can't rw on the disk the logs reside. So I want to scp them on another system. But there I don't have 50GB of space.
Is there a way, I can compress the logs on the fly while scp-ing them to the other machine?
udosVasistha: still reading through that google query... looks like warm... cool... warm again... getting warmer...
humboldtActually, I have about 30GB of space over there, so I could use this for temp storage. Copy the logs one by one somehow and compressing them right after.
Is there a tool that does that for me (or an easy command line) or do I have to script that?
wolsudos: initscript
Vasisthahumboldt: you might be able to set up a tar+gzip pipe
udoswell, at least debian isn't the royal mess that gentoo seems to be when it comes to environment
wolshumboldt: logrotate
udos: look for /etc/initsript, it's what you need
humboldtwols: yes, I know. But it was not setup so I have to deal with that now.
udoswols. I don"t have one
