irgendwer4711just building a little pxe rescue image14:29
peetauris down? :(19:16
peetauror alternatively, I have a devuan_chimaera_4.0.0_amd64_minimal-live.iso can I install using this without the gui?19:16
peetaurfound refractainstaller.....will try that19:30
fsmithredpeetar, you still here? There's a bug in that installer. Don't select "sudo as default, disable root account." It doesn't work right.20:11
fsmithredpeetaur, ^^^20:11
peetaurfsmithred: ok thanks20:24 booted. now to add bedrocklinux :)20:45
peetaurthe booted thing didn't use dhcp ... no problem but unexpected20:45
rwpfsmithred, When using the refracta installer I noticed that /bin/ping is missing the cap_net_raw=ep capability.21:15
rwpMaking me think that rsync was used to copy it without the -X,--xattrs preserve extended attributes option.21:16
rwpUsing "setcap cap_net_raw+ep /bin/ping" will restore this but if there is one then there are likely other files missing capabilities too.21:16
rwpThe cap_net_raw+ep capability is what allows ping to be used without it being setuid-root.  Without it ping does not work for normal users.21:17
ibanjaDoes anybody know how to make the laptop stay on while the lid is closed? I am running LXDE with openbox WM.22:31
ibanjaAll I can find are systemd fixes.22:32
peetauribanja:   # apt search power | grep installed    shows things acpid ...probably acpid23:10
fsmithredalso look in /etc/elogind/logind.conf23:19
ibanjain /etc/elogind/logind.conf it has #HandleLidSwitch=suspend which is presumably the default.23:21
ibanjaI don't see options listed in the man page.23:22
fsmithredthat line is commented in one laptop and uncommented in the other23:23
fsmithredbut both sleep when the lid is closed23:23
ibanjaI am trying  HandleLidSwitch=ignore... from here
fsmithredI think mine is set in xfce-power-manager, and I seem to recall having to change something when I switch the display manager from lxdm to lightdm.23:28
ibanjaHandleLidSwitch=ignore worked.  Thanks for the help.23:29
ibanjapeetaur: I usually use apt-get. I will have to explore the apt more as I like that output.23:32
