zaapielubuntu-desktop is what i want to cnvert xubuntu into ubuntu correct?00:00
Flannelzaapiel: Yep00:00
EyemeanFlannel, does that mean it will be slighly slower aswell?00:00
zaapielk ty00:00
Mapsamenado - if I do `lpadmin -h nas -p lp` I get conenction refused.. if I'm logged into "nas" how can I see the socket or prot ot whatever?00:00
FlannelEyemean: Its only slower when it comes to disk access.  And even then, only slightly.00:00
solexiousunop, got it, thank you00:00
unopsolexious, whats the username you are using to connect to this share? it isn't administrator is it?00:00
gregbradyOk, well, thanks for listening....Maybe I'll try later.00:00
MagicdeadRonLut: ah and if it is indeed compiz, then we should be able to corner the problem in fast and finish the little sucker off ;)00:00
unopsolexious, cool00:00
maccam94kevinm_: password protect GRUB, lock your case, remove everything but the HD from boot order, password protect the bios00:01
homiecan anyone help me set the default applicatin for an ipod?00:01
Flannelkevinm_: And then unplug it from the wall00:01
homiei don't like it opening in rhythmbox00:01
EyemeanFlannel, thanks i might just do that then, because for some reson ubuntu is acting funny, so installtion time should be alot faster if installed in windows00:01
kevinm_maccam94: im using a thinkpad that has features like bios password, could i keep the other boot devices or is a bios password not secure?00:01
RonLutMagicdead: :\ my system stopped again.... I don't know if it's the same problem but I guess so....00:02
unopkevinm_, if someone has physical access to a machine, there really is nothing you can do00:02
EyemeanFlannel,  is there an easy way to uninstall ubuntu?00:02
jack-desktopwhen i log in, my window manager doesn't load and i have to click the fusion icon and select 'reload window manager', how can i fix this?00:02
irc-testeris there a way to force a usb-serial device to use a specific /dev/ttyUSBx port?  For example, /dev/ttyUSB3 instead of the lowest available port?00:02
FlannelEyemean: sure, delete the partitions00:02
mattbradshawmaccam94: you're probably right... not using the restricted hardware manager is probably the cause (attribute it to my ubuntu-n00bness... i'm an rhel/fedora guy by training)00:03
mattbradshawmaccam94: problem is00:03
maccam94kevinm_: well you don't want other devices to be before the HD in the boot order, because then someone can boot a livecd and get at your hard drive00:03
mattbradshawmaccam94: i can't seemingly get to that00:03
kevinm_unop: really? bios password is beatable? and then removing all kernal boots but my main one and password protecting grub, all that and still they could gain root00:03
ryan_using vlc player in buntu 8.04, settings "adjust vlc priority" needs an offset #, what number should i just to delegate highest priority00:03
MagicdeadRonLut: hmm. so if it's not compiz, well. difficult to say. have you tried running it for a while without any program open to check if it's cause by a program?00:03
maccam94kevinm_: unless you're using an encrypted filesystem00:03
MagicdeadRonLut: other than that it could be anything, from some x-server error to god knows what imo00:04
Flannelkevinm_: you don't need to remove all the kernel options, thats what the password protection does.00:04
EyemeanFlannel, what about the sectin at the start where u select operating system u want to use? sorry im new to linux00:04
mattbradshawmaccam94: doing the dpkg command resulted in nothing... i even removed the fglrx_drv.so a moment ago, it still locks up00:04
kevinm_maccam94: yea but if the bios password came before the boot deviceses shouldnt i be safe from livecd attack?00:04
RonLutMagicdead: :\00:04
maccam94kevinm_: thinkpad bioses are good, but you need to lock the case shut so they can't reset it00:04
mattbradshawmaccam94: any advice for getting any x to work and then i go the restricted hw mgr route00:04
unopkevinm_, sure, all one has to do is remove the cmos battery for half-an-hour and your BIOS settings are lost - that includes the password you've set00:04
maccam94mattbradshaw: not dpkg, apt-get00:04
kevinm_maccam94: good idea00:04
FlannelEyemean: You'll want to pop in your windows CD, and fix the MBR, and then once you're done with that you'll boot straight into windows.00:04
RonLutMagicdead: Ill do some more checking to see if I can recognize the problem source00:04
FlannelEyemean: And then after that, just overwrite the ubuntu partitions00:04
m_newtonHow do i regester a bot?00:04
kevinm_unop: i see00:05
maccam94mattbradshaw: it sounds like you're totally hosing the system. you're mixing manual and automatic package handling in the worst ways00:05
Flannelm_newton: What?00:05
kevinm_thanks for the suggestions guys00:05
MagicdeadRonLut: also, have you googled/searched the forums for similar problems? i know it might be hard to find info on this specific topic as it seems to be quite generic, but it's worth a try00:05
Eyemeandoes that mean i seelct repair from windows cd? Flannel ?00:05
m_newtonFlannel, well, i want to regester my bot, then give it voice00:05
FlannelEyemean: Depending on your version, yeah, repair or fixmbr or whatnot00:05
maccam94mattbradshaw: i've gotta go eat dinner now, but if installing the drivers through the restricted-hardware-manager doesn't work, reinstall ubuntu and install them through r-hw-m00:05
Flannelm_newton: Where?00:05
EyemeanFlannel, xp00:06
* maccam94 is GONE00:06
m_newtonFlannel, my channel...00:06
Eyemeanok cheers Flannel00:06

gogiI was hoping someone could help me with a newly installed mythbuntu / grub dual booting problem00:07
FlyingSquirrel31what is the default image viewer in hardy, is it still gthumb?00:07
to0xquentusrex explain00:07
unopFlyingSquirrel31, on the gnome desktop, yes00:07

quentusrexthanks to0x00:07
Vinchenzo28whats the best prog from .pdf's?00:07
gogiI just installed mythbuntu, hoping to dual boot with XP. But for some reason when I boot from the hdd and it gets time to load a OS, and hopefully show me the boot menu, the screen just fills up with "grub" over and over again...I had to boot into the LiveCD to get here to ask for help :)00:07
quentusrexI'm trying to setup my ubuntu gusty server so that I can ssh into it from my desktop without typing a password00:07
unopVinchenzo28, you mean, to read pdfs?00:07
Vinchenzo28unop: yeah00:07
MatBoyubuntu server still contains egroupware 1.2 and there already is 1.4 :S00:08
unopVinchenzo28, acroread - adobe's acrobat reader00:08
quentusrexbut each time I generate the ssh-keygen -t dsa, and copy it to my remote server. I still get prompted for a password.00:08
Vinchenzo28unop: ubuntu compatible?00:08
FlyingSquirrel31unop: I right click on an image and choose open with image viewer it just thinks for a minute and then does nothing.00:08
unopVinchenzo28, there's also evince - both are available on ubuntu, yes00:08
Magicdeadmattbradshaw: uhm, i didn't follow the whole discussion, but did you try installing the driver with envyng, too?00:08
Vinchenzo28unop: thanks00:08
to0xquentusrex paste the manipulation you do on pastebin.org00:09
unopFlyingSquirrel31, hmm, try setting the default application back to gthumb and trying again -- if that fails, perhaps reinstall gthumb00:09
BallenaCan some one with basic bash scripting knowledge here help me? :) http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=5276296&postcount=700:09
m_newtonFlannel, well, i have already regestered... How do i regester it00:09
FlannelMatBoy: egroupware is in universe, #ubuntu-motu is the place to go.  However, 1.4 is in Intrepid00:09
unopFlyingSquirrel31, it might also be likely that gthumb has crashed - you might want to check that too and kill any instances already running.00:09
quentusrexI just scp the id_dsa.pub file into the remote server username@mydomain.com:/home/username/.ssh/authorized_keys200:09

m_newtonFlannel, i want to register and identify my bot00:10
Jordan_UBallena, You can check the number of arguments with $#00:10
FlyingSquirrel31unop: Thanks, that works. I just wasn't sure if perhaps gthumb was supposed to have been replaced with something else.00:10
Magicdeadmattbradshaw: well, it's sort of a long shot, but the EnvyNG script always did the trick for me when i had display driver probs, just install the package and run envyng00:11
thunder_stormhello everybody00:11
Flannelm_newton: right, register it just like you would any other nick.  And as for automatic identification, that'll depend on the bot00:11

arooni-mobiletop i'm typing to you on.00:15
MagicdeadFlannel: why can't he/her use intrepid packages?00:15

MagicdeadFlannel: the intrepid flash 10 solves a lot of problems with pa00:15
connorim eating crumbled bacon in a bowl like cereal00:15
FlannelMagicdead: He can use intrepid files if he's on intrepid.  You can't mix/match files like that.00:15
to0xquentusrex: in order to have access to a machine without password with ssh, you ve to generate a public key from your client server, and then copy this file to the user@server:~/.ssh/authorized_keys file00:16

quentusrexjant, then what am I don't wrong???00:16
connortareks: if you can, get a ubuntu live cd and boot it00:17
RonLutMagicdead: It happend again... it's not compiz problem, for sure....00:17
connorand try an install to see if that helps00:17
MagicdeadFlannel: hmm that's the info i found on the forums when i had problems with flash & pa. sure it's a workaround but in this case the flashplugin-nonfree + alsa 1.0.16 works great00:17
tareksconnor: I'm in the live cd right now00:17
connorum, download the ubuntu iso and burn it00:17

connoralways use the lowest speed on things like this00:18
jantquentusrex: then scp .ssh/id_dsa.pub <user>@server_to_connect_to:~/.ssh/authorized_keys00:19
jjjjjfjjfjfjCan someone please give me a quick answer as to whether you would either install Ubuntu or Kubuntu onto a fresh harddrive? Been using Ubuntu in college, and wondering if Kubuntu is a better option..... or is this all just preference?00:19
connorjjjjjfjjfjfj: ubuntu uses gnome and kubuntu uses kde00:19
tareksI burnt it in 16X00:19
MagicdeadRonLut: hum, that sucks. well i wonder, if you boot from the install-cd, so you use the standard system on the cd, would the problem still exist.00:19
connortareks: was that the lowest?00:19
tareksI think it's just something wrong with how the dual loader is setup or something, I can't really say since I'm new at this stuff00:19
jantquentusrex: make sure that the directory .ssh on the server to connect to excists00:19
RonLutMagicdead: What you mean? using the live cd?00:19
connortareks: always get comfortable with the live cd first00:19
gway9000jjjjjfjjfjfj: yes you can00:19
jantquentusrex: eq scp shouldn't stop with an error00:20
jjjjjfjjfjfjconnor: yes, would your preference be gnome or kde?00:20
SeaPhorjjjjjfjjfjfj, just prefs bro00:20
connortareks: try uninstalling mythbuntu first and see if that helps00:20
quentusrexit doesn't.00:20
connorjjjjjfjjfjfj: i use ubuntu personally, it was what i started with00:20
MagicdeadRonLut: on the linux install-cd is a pre-made complete ubuntu, so you can boot of the cd and use that standard system.00:20
connortareks: uninstalling mythbuntu will remove grub, letting you boot xp00:20
jantquentusrex: then you are done00:20
zangabarI'm having troubles getting grub to boot my installation of Windows XP.  Windows setup installed the boot loader into a different partition than the XP installation.  Can anyone help me get around this?00:20

bibi__I am running ubuntu installer and the only choise it gives me is to use entire disk. I want to install it preserving existing partition table. How can I do it?00:20

connorzangabar: what happens?00:21
jjjjjfjjfjfjconnor: Do you know of any advantages/disadvantages over one or the other?00:21
connorjjjjjfjjfjfj: no I don't,00:21
=== root is now known as Guest80110
MagicdeadRonLut: now if you have the problems with the standard system, it is indeed weird. if you don't have it on the live-cd system, the problem is most probably due to some changes you made, your installation, which would mean it's fixable :)00:21

nickrudFlannel, I thought I remembered installing it on this machine.00:40
FlannelNetEcho: No, but xchat is in universe, and irssi is in main00:40
SeaPhorwell then if u are sure that /dev/sda7 is where you want it then yes, but you will need to partition for swap,   which edits /changes your partition table, which was your question,,, as far as "and preserve data thatas on /dev/sda8 withouth having to backup." never a good idea to mess with partitions without backup00:40

xaiI'm trying to update edgy, but none of the repositories work now.. http://us.archive.ubuntu.com for example01:55
Magicdeadgreenthumb: it's in hardy-updates01:55
nickrudnorty install gparted , and select the correct device in the upper right corner01:55
ubottuEnd-Of-Life is the time when security updates for an Ubuntu release stop. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases01:55
poseidonnorty, try nparted or whatever ubuntu's defualt partition manager is.01:55
Magicdeadgreenthumb:  http://archive.ubuntu.com hardy-updates/main01:56
xaiIs there a CLI tool for fixing the sources.list ??01:56
nortynickrud, is there a terminal command to install it?01:56
nickrudnorty you don't have access to the software sources?01:56
Jack_Sparrowxai try this in a term   sudo update-manager -d01:56
greenthumbmagicdead: thanks, i think that took care of it. i just overlooked that. Thanks guys!01:56
nickrudnorty that is, you're not running gnome?01:56
greenthumbyeah, i've been missing out i see, 234 new updates01:57
nickrudnorty sorry, brain fart.   sudo apt-get install gparted01:57
poseidonAre ubuntu releases directly related to debian releases/milestones?  ie two releases in between every new stable debian?01:57
keithclarkPlease, anyone with ideas, my laptop is not unuseable. It seems to be moving at a crawling speed and my CPU monitor shows it running at only 1 GHZ.  It is an AMD 64 3500+.  I'm not sure what is wrong but it is running really slowly.01:57
DroP-PSyChoSiSany1 hear know how to run warcraft3 with no lag thro win ?01:57
Magicdeadposeidon: no, theres 2 ubuntu releases / year, 1 in april, one in octobre. i don't think they are dependent on debian releases01:58
Jack_SparrowDroP-PSyChoSiS /join #winehq01:58
greenthumbkeithclark: it maybe a bad idea, but i usually backup my info and do a format and reinstall at that point01:58
nickrudMagicdead yes, each release takes a snapshot of debian unstable, then builds on that01:58
DroP-PSyChoSiSkk ty01:58
xaiJack_Sparrow: yea but when I try to "check" i get the same errors as in "apt-get update"01:58
Keith_M_Anything that I run in OpenGL flickers, is there a fix for this?01:58
keithclarkgreenthumb: Yeah, I thought running Linux was supposed to stop that nonsense.01:59
nickrudKeith_M_ usually you have to disable compiz to get decent open gl in my experience01:59
DroP-PSyChoSiSits coz ur settings are set wrong01:59
poseidonMagicdead, what about the packages?  I'm pretty sure that ubuntu packages are dependent on debian packages.  Where do they take the packages from (from stable/unstable/testing/etc)01:59
greenthumbkeithclark: i haven't had to do it since i switched over to Linux though, last time was in windoze01:59
Keith_M_nickrud: compiz ruins opengl?01:59
DroP-PSyChoSiSit flickers coz ur visuel effects are set to extra01:59
DroP-PSyChoSiSset it to noce01:59
Jack_Sparrowxai you would be better off with a fresh install of a new release.. there are lots of megs of dl's between where you are and the current release01:59
nickrudKeith_M_ it's been known to, yes01:59
keithclarkgreenthumb: this will be the third time for me.02:00
n3klHi.  I am brand new to ubuntu trying to setup wpa_supplicant.  I have install teh 8.4 er whatever the kde4 packages are.  I have copied over my interfaces file from a working debian install and setup the wpa_supplicant.conf.  Now it will not grab an address form dhcp once it connects to the network.  What is the problem?02:00
nickrudKeith_M_ if you're running compiz, try getting more info in #compiz-fusion02:00
greenthumbkeithclark: ouch02:00
poseidonCompiz is horrible.  How do a bunch of psuedo bubbles help you effectivley work on your pc?02:00
xaiJack_Sparrow: I can't do that.. 2000 miles away.02:00
keithclarkgreenthumb: Yeah, I never did it once with XP.02:00

nickrudxai you can use old-releases.ubuntu.com to get the latest version of the update manager, then you should be able to upgrade. See the following02:01

gogi`summary of my problem: I have XP installed in one hdd and I just installed ubuntu in another hdd.  I went through the setup process and all but when grub comes up and asks what I want to load and I select ubuntu it gives me an error 2202:49
gogi`I've tried booting from the live CD and doing the sudo grub , find blah/stage1 , root (hd0,1) , setup (hd0)02:50
Starnestommygogi`: you probably have grub set to use the wrong partitions02:50
gogi`according to the forum posts I've found that should solve the problem!  but it doesn't02:50
xenoglossiaI'm dual-booting Win2K and Ubuntu 8.04, and (after fooling around with a Live USB), I get this error message when I try to boot into Windows via GRUB: http://paste.ubuntu.com/23323/.  I'm told that I replaced the Windows bootloader with Syslinux (by the way, I'm a total novice with Linux).  I don't have my Windows CD anymore.  Is there anything I can do?02:50
craigbass1976DIL, again, why isn't this stuff on the site I posted... weird.  the dist-upgrade would have been a lot easier than all the GUI farting around02:51
gogi`Starnestommy: how would I go about setting it to use the right partitions?02:51
gogi`It's really kind of frustrating because I thought ubuntu was supposed to be idiot-proof :(02:51
Magicdeadacid-trip: well it seems there are no options for that package, at least the command doesn't do anything for me either ;)02:51
SeaPhorStarnestommy, what is the cmd for updating the sources, or extras,, sorry having a hrd time remembering02:51
Jordan_Uxenoglossia, Yes, you can either try to get grub working or install the windows bootloader from ubuntu with the ms-sys package02:51
amireldor_xenoglossia, seems like you messed up something in /boot02:51
StarnestommySeaPhor: sudo apt-get update?02:51

boazI have 4 hard drives. I want to reinstall Ubuntu on one drive, and put Windows XP on a different drive, so as to be able to dual boot. However, since I have been experimenting with Ubuntu, XP does not recognize that my hard drives exist. Any advice as to what I need to do to accomplish this goal?02:52
Jordan_Uxenoglossia, Syslinux is usually only used for liveCD / liveDVD's so I would try installing GRUB first02:52
MagicdeadImMelody: but you better ask someone else about your ndiswrapper problem02:53
xenoglossiaGreat, thanks!  I'll look into ms-sys, but in the meanwhile, how would I go about fixing grub?  Should I reinstall grub?02:53
chalcedonycpare: i appreciate your help very much .. maybe nobody is here right now that knows about your problem02:53
Jordan_Uxenoglossia, It seems that you don't have grub installed in the first place, you have syslinux installed02:53
DILboaz:are they formatted - xp may not see ext302:54
cparechalcedony:  Looks that way02:54
SeaPhorStarnestommy, yes but was more,,, and i cant remember, was for restricted drivers and multiverse stuff, i'm sorry i should have noted it02:54
cparechalcedony:  I am gonna end up fighting it on my own02:54
Jordan_Uxenoglossia, How did you install Ubuntu?02:54
xenoglossiaWell when I turn on my computer, I get the grub menu, and I can boot into Ubuntu just fine, but I can't boot into Windows02:54
cparechalcedony: But there are always forums :)02:54
chalcedonycpare: i'd suggest trying tomorrow during the day (usa) and probably monday.. you want the guys who work in it02:54
nuno_nunesHI PPL02:54

gogi`please....pretty please....?02:56
evanwangXP can see ext302:56
chalcedonycpare: what have you done so far on it? the cd/dvd wasn't that hard to do on my husband's02:57
boazDIL, if I make new partitions, but don't format them, will XP see them then?02:57
chalcedonygogi`: it works best if you say what the problem IS02:57
gogi`chalcedony I did earlier, but here it is again: I have XP installed in one hdd and I just installed ubuntu in another hdd.  I went through the setup process and all but when grub comes up and asks what I want to load and I select ubuntu it gives me an error 2202:58
DILboaz: i did not think xp could see ext3 file system nut evanwang is saying otherwise02:58
gogi`I've tried booting from the live CD and doing the sudo grub , find blah/stage1 , root (hd0,1) , setup (hd0)02:58
gogi`but it doesn't fix anything02:58
Starnestommygogi`: you'll need to change the root settings in /boot/grub/menu.lst02:58
xenoglossiaJordan_U, I repartitioned my hard drive, yes.  If it helps, here is the output of sudo fdisk -l: http://paste.ubuntu.com/2341502:58
Jordan_Uboaz, You can get windows to read  write to ext3 with http://www.fs-driver.org/02:59
Magicdeadxenoglossia: http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/grub.html#DOS_002fWindows maybe this helps :)02:59
evanwangwe can use software names explorer2fs02:59
* DIL but not nut02:59
gogi`Starnestommy, I'm pretty dumb at this stuff...do you think you could tell me exactly how I do that, and what I change it to :)02:59
gogi`I booted back into XP, so I'll have to go back into the live cd to do it03:00
boazJordan_U, can Ubuntu read NTFS file system?03:00
Starnestommygogi`: you'll also need to replace (hd0,1) with (hd<hard-disk-number>,<partition-number>)03:00
xenoglossiaMagicdead, Thanks!03:00
Magicdeadboaz: it can03:00
Starnestommygogi`: i.e. (hd2,6) for disk 2 partition 603:00
DILboaz: with ntfs3g03:00
th0rStarnestommy, I think disk2 partition6 would be hd1,503:01
Jordan_Uboaz, Yes03:01
gogi`I will try do to that03:01
gogi`Oh, how would I even edit the file?03:01
gogi`Is there a notepad type thing around...lol03:01

gogi`according to fdisk -l my linux drive is in /dev/sda203:31
andy_ctrl + alt + backspace03:31

gogi`um...I typed notepad in the terminal and it gave me a command to install wine03:33
gogi`and then notepad came with it?03:33
__yyKRaZy_WaKa: what I meant was as long as windows is installed now you should be able to reinstall ubuntu over the current ubuntu install and have your boot menu fixed automagically .. that will work03:33
nickrudgogi` don't use notepad, that doesn't handle unix text files correctly03:33

nickrudKRaZy_WaKa you need to set the ubuntu hard disk as primary drive. Then boot a live CD. Then set up the working environment, and chroot into the ubuntu install. At that point you can run  sudo update-grub  && sudo grub-install hd0 or (hd0) don't remember exactly off hand03:58

KRaZy_WaKanickrud: tried the working environment and all that to fix it already and it didn't work, but maybe i did something wrong due to that page being screwy04:00
greenthumbSteve: i run the patch command "sudo patch -pl < b43-injection-" and then it asks what file i want to patch and i have no idea what to put04:00
nickrudKRaZy_WaKa yes! There's a special thing you have to do to boot windows off the slave drive. You have to convince windows that's running on the primary drive. Get back the ubuntu boot, and I'll help you finish up the windows boot04:00
nickrudKRaZy_WaKa you were going in exactly the right direction, just didn't know about the finicky windows boot04:01
KRaZy_WaKanickrud: i can't get ubuntu to boot now, i'm so utterly confused at this point lol04:01
Steve_greenthumb, try "sudo patch -p1 < b43-injection-"04:01
nickrudKRaZy_WaKa use the live cd grub reinstall method, get back to the point where ubuntu boots but windows doesn't. You went in the wrong direction after you had that working04:01

unavailablezenoglossia if you cant boot to windows, that means that grub wrote to the mbr, and you lost the part that says "go to this drive for windows"  your windows disk will be really handy right now04:57

dr_WillisPackman_e,  'sudo apt-get install xchat' and try 'xchat' in the terminal. I dont like xchat-gnome, i just use the normal xchat program.06:14

unavailablepackman_2 packman_e  bah06:30
Packman_edone, now fingers crossed!06:31
dr_WillisL1nc01n,  do them all.. :)06:31
Jester45L1nc01n: shell scripts are bash scipts just so you know :)06:31
windowsIsForN00bStormStrikes: cpufreqd looks good too, "cpufreqd is meant to be a replacement of the speedstep applet you can find on some other OS, it monitors the system status and selects the most appropriate CPU level."06:31
dr_WillisL1nc01n,   learning is a process.. the more ya learn, the more you apply what you learned to real life situations. thats how you really learn. Just reading bash guides willbe the first step in learning :)06:31

dr_WillisL1nc01n,  a lot will depend on what tasks you want to do. It is worth while to learn bash.06:32
Packman_ewhere do you guys think would be a goot place to start programming, for someone who has never programmed before?06:32
windowsIsForN00bStormStrikes: installing it or using it?06:32
L1nc01nJester45: I know, I just don't know my way around the terminal very well.  I need to learn how to do basic stuff in the bash before I start doing scripts, lol06:33
techno_freakL1nc01n, i would suggest bash first as it helps in your normal computer file management more06:33
StormStrikeswindowsIsForN00b: installing it.  Well specifically the PHC utility.06:33
dr_WillisPackman_e,   Python is fairly good and welldocumented for a total-starter to any programing.06:33
ASULutzyMan, what good is having 4 cores if devede won't use them ;)06:33

L1nc01nPackman_e,  I first learned C++ in High School, then did Java a little bit, and when I got to college I learned C, and then Java some more.  If I was you, I would try and get into C.  It's more "lower level" than the others and makes you understand more of how programming actually works in my opinion06:36

Knightly88Hi there. I'm hoping someone might have a second to help guide me in the right direction. I currently have Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron installed on my desktop pc and I am hoping to copy the Ubuntu partition from my desktop to an external hard drive... anyone know how to copy an entire Ubuntu OS with updates etc. and install it on an external hard drive with an MSDOS filesystem?06:40
StormStrikeswindowsIsForN00b: That searching though led me to powernowd and checking to see if it would do what I wanted.06:40
windowsIsForN00bStormStrikes: http://phc.athousandnights.de/06:41
ASULutzyKnightly88: sudo cp -ax / /the/path/to/the/external06:41
Jester45Knightly88: as a backup perpose06:41
Jester45ASULutzy: would that maintain permissions?06:42
dmbazhang i put in the same UUID lets see if this works, brb.06:42
dr_WillisPackman_e,  id rather make a extra housepayment.. with my $$ :)06:42
Knightly88how can I copy Ubuntu to a hard drive and then RUN/USE it from the external hard drive? or do I need to just install a fresh copy of Ubuntu?06:42
L1nc01nPackman_e, Well, I don't know about that, haha.  I think it's just the kind of thinker you are.  In my opinion its a lot easier for me to understand programming from the ground up.  I really like assembly language and stuff, and C is not too far off.  If you really get down and dirty you get to see how processors manipulate the bits, and store shit in buffers and read this and do that, yaddy yadda.  And then you have people who06:42
L1nc01n think it's a lot easier to code in Python or something because it's as close to writing english sentences as possible, which is also pretty cool06:42
ASULutzyJester45: If he copied it to an ext3 drive it would06:42
StormStrikeswindowsIsForN00b: that was another issue.  when I went to that site to download the files to compile them, I could never get them.   Fortunately the author included links to download the files not too long ago specific to the latest kernel06:42
Jester45Knightly88: i would go with the fresh install06:42
Jester45ASULutzy: but he said MSDOS filesystem so i was going to suggest !backup06:43
StormStrikeswindowsIsForN00b: Either the svn links dont work or Im just not the brightest person and was doing something wrong.  The latter more likely.06:43
Knightly88Jester45 I've been doing some searching but still a little lost... how would I go about installing a fresh copy of Ubuntu on an external hard drive with the MSDOS file system? do I need to format/partition the external hard drive first?06:43
Packman_eL1nc01n, you like asembly!! man thats like chewing broken glass!06:43
L1nc01nPackman_e,  I didn't complete one of my sentences back there, but I think you get the idea06:44
Jester45Knightly88: it would be easier to reinstall then move everythig from the internal out06:44
ASULutzyKnightly88: It can be done. You would want the external hard drive to have an ext3 partition, then you would need to do say, sudo mkdir /media/backup then sudo mount /dev/thedrivepartition /media/backup then sudo cp -ax / /media/backup06:44
windowsIsForN00bStormStrikes: did u check this out https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UndervoltingHowto06:44
Jester45Knightly88: you can format it with a linux FS or use fat if you want windows to beable to use it still06:44
keith-so what is tablet pc like in ubuntu06:44
Knightly88No.... fuck Windows... never again will Microsoft own my computer, lol.06:45
ASULutzyKnightly88: I had to do roughly the same thing to install a RAID-1 on an already running ubuntu system. (I partitioned a drive to match the running drive, did sudo cp / /media/backup, then had to do some tricky bind action and mdadm sorcery, but it worked)06:45
StormStrikeswindowsIsForN00b: Oh yeah.  I ran across that last night in my searches.  Though the pages are in German I ran them through babble fish to translate them but did not get any information that really furthered the cause.06:45

dr_WillisFelonious,  depends on what sort of archive you are manking i imagine.07:10
=== insertNameHere is now known as nicknameHere
NetEchoFelonious its only as fast as your system allows it to be and depends on the type of archive method07:10
bazhang!nickspam > nicknameHere07:10
ubottunicknameHere, please see my private message07:10
NetEchoFelonious what type of archive were you making?07:10
PseudoBobheh, just had to hit auto image adjust07:10
PseudoBoblol, thank you again07:10
Feloniouswell dr_Willis it appears to be ALOT slower than winrar does extracting the exact same archive07:11
Deranderpseudobob: no biggy07:11
mattlockinsertNameHere: when you say 'run the executable', do you mean clicking its icon somewhere?07:11
Jester45PseudoBob: does your monitor have an auto config?07:11
FeloniousI thought maybe it was something on my end causing this07:11
NetEchoFelonious is it a .rar file?07:11
Deranderfelonious: are you extracting a rar?07:11
NetEchoFelonious .rar is propriatary thats why07:11
Deranderfelonious: rars are non-free formats, it is reverse engineered07:11
ubotturar is a non-free archive format created by Rarsoft. For instructions on accessing .rar files through the Archive Manager view https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FileCompression. There is a free (as in speech) unrar utility as well, see !info unrar-free07:11
Feloniousso unrar isnt a rarlabs app?07:11
Feloniousi thought it was, my mistake07:11
NetEchoFelonious no07:11
Jester45well 7zip does a good job with rars on windows at least07:11
PseudoBobwhen i used df -h, it told me i was using 3.4G of 3.6G07:12
dr_WillisFelonious,  rarlabs has released some linux stuff. but they sort of have some licensing 'limitations' also.07:12
welkinraheem>>>> i tried but its not coming..... i dont knw the sharedname07:12
dr_WillisFelonious,   I perfer to use 7zip mainly.07:12
Jester45the package unrar-free is the free version unrar isnt free07:12
Feloniousi liked 7zip for windows07:12

DeranderBah, silly vim :-(07:14
dr_WillisFlynsarmy,  try the proper mount command from the terminal. Its possible they are marked as 'unclean' and needing to be checked by windows ,  you may need to use the force option.07:14

bazhangPseudoBob, are your files backed up?07:27
magnetronhi! i'm connecting to to a ssh server. the server is using a iso-latin1 (ISO8859-1) locale, my ubuntu client is using a UTF-8 locale. the characters are messed up, how should i correct to view all chars?07:28

PseudoBobThink I should probably do that before proceeding?07:28
Moj1I'm running from a LiveCD now, I can't load up my installed ubuntu because I changed driver. Should I run 'displayconfig-gtk' in the terminal?07:28
bazhangPseudoBob, you might consider getting the gparted livecd; not backing up is seriously risky though.07:28
bazhangMoj1, that wont help with live cd07:29
bazhangMoj1, and since you are on gutsy you need to run Frogzoo 's command from command line in your install not the live cd07:29
Moj1@bazhang: can I just copy the video driver setting file that's loaded into the RAMdisk (guessing that's how livecd works) onto disk?07:30
Moj1okay I'll try that, thank you07:30
PseudoBobSo without using GParted all I can do is delete files I don't need?07:30
PseudoBobBecause my Ubuntu partition is pretty small.07:30
bazhangMoj1, best to drop to a shell and do it that way.07:30
PseudoBob3,6 Gigs.07:31
bazhangPseudoBob, gparted is for resizing, deleting or creating new partitions07:31
dr_WillisPseudoBob,  you could resize the ntfs. make a new linux partition in the now freed up space. and just mount that new space to your linux system somewhere to use it.07:31
Mr_Giraffehey, for some reason my usb mouse isn't working at all, and my /proc/bus/usb/ directory is totally empty07:31

dr_WillisPseudoBob,  make it where its not accessable by the os. a filesystem Must be mounted for it to be see/read/written to.07:44
bazhangPseudoBob, mounted partitions cant be edited07:44
dr_WillisPseudoBob,  'sudo umount /dev/hda1' (for example0 would unmoint the hda1 filesystem07:45
PseudoBobSo if I unmount that partition, I make it smaller?07:45
sp00nPseudoBob, also, note that the command to unmount is *umount*, not *unmount*07:45
bazhangMr_Giraffe, pastebin the output of lshw to paste.ubuntu.com07:45

dr_WillisPseudoBob,  to access a filesystem for normal  access.. it needs to be mounted.07:46
sp00nLSD|Ninja, it's in the middle for me....07:46
PseudoBobAlright, so I wouldn't be able to run windows after unmounting it then?07:46

bullgard4bazhang: dr_Willis says "removing  compiz can cause some annoying issues." How to safely uninstall compiz?07:49
dr_Willisbullgard4,  removing compiz isent going to save much space. -  theres some sort of default window managers settings that  i have seen get confused/broken - when you remove compiz. It may be fixed now under hardy. But i spent part of a day under gutsy figureing otu what went wrong on my laptop after i removed compiz.07:49
PseudoBobso the unmounted ones...07:49
dr_Willisbullgard4,  so its best to cautious. :)07:49
nicknameHerebazhang: i changed it in preferred apps and nothing happened07:49
sp00nLSD|Ninja, I had an installation a while ago that couldn't load X because it had the refresh rate for the monitor wrong.  Editing your xorg conf or rc conf can set the correct resolution for starting the gdm07:49
bazhangbullgard4, safest would be to set it off07:50
LSD|Ninjaremoving all the old kernels the update manager never bothers too will probably save more space then removing compiz07:50
dr_Willisand cleaning out the apt cache will save space also07:50
webcamwonderPseudoBob: Unmounted partitions cannot be "explored" using your file manager normally07:50

bazhangMr_Giraffe, there is just the single usb port? this is 64bit ubuntu running on an amd?07:51
sp00nLSD|Ninja, I completely agree.  I switched back to linux about a week ago, used 7.10 for a day, upgred to Hardy and have spent a week googling hardy bug reports...07:51
webcamwonderPseudoBob: And they normally show up on your desktop, which you can unmount by right clicking and selecting unmount volume07:51
Mr_Giraffebazhang, there are 3 usb ports...07:51
Mr_Giraffeand yes, on a 64 bit amd07:51

sp00nmagnetron, I have tried both.  When I leave off the -t option, which I understand should attempt autodetect, it times out with the message to refer to mount.cifs man page07:56
Mr_Giraffe(one would hope that maybe wubi worked as advertised...)07:56
bazhangMr_Giraffe, first try the livecd; dualbooting is superior to wubi imo (if you can use your mice)07:56
PseudoBobCan anyone tell me the command to show open files?07:57
magnetronsp00n: sounds like you have network problems.07:57
sp00nmagnetron, I believe I may have changed a conf file or system setting somewhere that broke my samba07:57
bazhangMr_Giraffe, wubi is a 'work in progress' :)07:57
sp00nmagnetron, no, my virtual box is able to connect to it fine07:57
danielm_mci'm also having network problems with my AR5212 using madwifi and wpasupplicant.07:57
Mr_Giraffeperhaps it should be labeled as such?07:57
magnetronsp00n: then you changed the wrong setting :/ do you have a backup of the smb.conf?07:57
bazhangdanielm_mc, what does ifconfig show; two entries or three07:57
dstrbdfrk1can someone im me who can help me with the compiz  cube effect07:58
Mr_Giraffeit's awfully annoying when it says "install without needing a cd!  it's great!  do it now!" and then i find out 3 days later that it's not going to work.07:58

bazhangMr_Giraffe, we always tell folks to dual boot here.07:58
Mr_Giraffewell that's nice, but the site doesn't07:58
sp00nmagnetron, yes, but the only difference in the backup was adding a share of my own07:58
bazhangMr_Giraffe, to remove the wubi install is quite easy though.07:58
Eleafcous cous07:59
Mr_Giraffebazhang, how?07:59
FlannelMr_Giraffe: Add/remove programs in windows, and remove it07:59
bazhangEleaf, english please07:59
sp00nmagnetron, I can reinstate the backup and restart samba but I'm pretty sure that's not the problem07:59
Mr_Giraffehow convenient\07:59
fma243i am currently trying to isntall ubuntu can any one help me through07:59
nano_if i run a job from terminal such as "find xxxxx &" it will go into the background, how can i bring this job into foreground07:59
Mr_Giraffewell then, thanks, i'll burn an ubuntu proper CD before doing that07:59
dr_Willisnano_,  'fg' command07:59
dr_Willisnano_,  time to check some bash guides/tutorials on 'job controll'07:59
nano_dr_Willis, okay, then if i can do that, and then i wan to send it back into background,....?07:59
bazhangMr_Giraffe, be sure to check the livecd and mice before installing though07:59
bazhangEleaf, stop08:00
magnetronsp00n: "it SHOULD work"... i've done modifications like that several times, that wreck my setup even if they are small08:00

Eleafcouscous is food bazhang ..08:00
danielm_mcbazhang : 408:00
Flannelnano_: "jobs" will give you a listing, %X where X is the number (or fg) will bring it to the foreground08:00
dr_Willisnano_,     ctrl-z, and bg command. ( i think) again - time to check 'job controll bash' tutorials. :)08:00
fma243hello some help here08:00
nano_Flannel, how can i send the job back into background...(Ctrl-Z may just end up stopping it)08:00
dr_Willisnano_,  its a rather in depth topic with a lot of neat.. things. :)08:00
sp00nmagnetron, while I am reinstating the backup ... it worked after the changes I made .. I backed up before I added my share.  Is there a possibility of not being able to connect to remote shares if you mess up a section for adding your own share?08:01
bazhangdanielm_mc, and what does sudo dhclient wlan0 report (any dhcpoffers?)08:01
Flannelnano_: stop it, and then bg #08:01
magnetronsp00n: yes.08:01
bazhangdanielm_mc, or ath0 in this case08:01
fma243how should i set the Partition08:01
nano_Flannel, sweet, thnx man08:01
bazhangfma243, we need more info08:02
[[thufir]]how do you refer to the home path?   $home/Desktop   ?   or something else?08:02
Flannelthansen|laptop: $HOME is home.  Which is also ~08:02
Flannel[[thufir]]: ^ thats for you08:02
fma243well i have just started ubuntu i running through the live cd i have 4 partitions i want to install ubuntu on a 5 gb one08:02
nano_if I go into VolumeControl>File>Change Device, i get to choose between ALSA,OSS,PulseAudio.....does this mean that whatever I select will be my acting sound server, and the rest will sit idle?08:02
Sa[i]nTOk, .img files, can I convert them to ISO?08:02
CaptainMorganwow... support for media such as digital cameras and cell phones in ubuntu have really improved - thank you!08:02
[[thufir]]I mean in conversation. you would write ~/whatever  meaning /home/thufir/whatever ?08:03
bazhangfma243, this is the guided one? then choose that partition and install to it08:03
Flannel[[thufir]]: yes, /home/username/08:03
fma243no i am using manual guided one just creates one partition08:03
[[thufir]]Flannel: or, you could write ~/   meaning the same thing, or would you write ~/username/  ?08:03
sp00nmagnetron, how do you restart samba again?  I momentarily forgot.  thought it was /etc/init.d/samba restart08:03
fma243and making it system root08:03
bazhangEleaf, stay on topic08:03
Flannel[[thufir]]: No, ~/ is the same as /home/username/08:04
Eleafbazhang, I'm eating couscous, which is basically wheat semolina.. just trying to be social08:04

klenz87hey is this at all possible i have two grapics cards in stalled a geforce4 mx 4000 and a geforce2 mx\mx 400 can i run a second screen off the geforce 2???08:04
EleafFlannel, It's been 1.5 years and I'm still banned from there08:04
FlannelEleaf: #ubuntu-ops, being banned from there is no excuse for bad manners here.08:05
bazhangEleaf, then watch your step here.08:05
godaoHi there. A modified version(overclocked by manufacter) of a Geforce, like 8600 GT with 512mb (instead of deafault 256mb) can run normaly on Ubuntu ?08:05
Eleafbazhang, yeah, no problem, just didn't know a random food gesture was off topic, ubuntu stuff now08:05
bazhanggodao, you are troubleshooting or have yet to install ubuntu08:05
nano_anybody know the answer to my last question......somebody outta08:05
sp00nmagnetron, when samba starts I get this error message.  Is this possibly related? /usr/sbin/smbd: /usr/local/lib/liblber-2.4.so.2: no version information available (required by /usr/sbin/smbd)08:05
nano_if I go into VolumeControl>File>Change Device, i get to choose between ALSA,OSS,PulseAudio.....does this mean that whatever I select will be my acting sound server, and the rest will sit idle?08:05
bazhangEleaf, stop.08:06

danielm_mcbazhang:  it's the problem where there is a PSK exchange but dhclient just keeps doing DHCPDISCOVER's 7 times and then gives up08:06
fma243i am not getting much support here08:07
sp00nStill not working...08:07
dr_Willisfma243,  one normally makes at least 2 partitions, one for / and one for swap.08:07
godaobazhang: the manufacter does not have a linux driver for the modified version, but I can download the original version of this gpu for linux at nvidia's official. but will it run overclocked like in windows drivers ?08:08
sp00nfma243, what is your question?  I am a recent linux user but I can try to help08:08
fma243so how should i set them i am trying like a 5gb one making it a ext3 and a 1gb swap08:08
nano_anybody can help with general questions about sound?08:08
sp00nmagnetron, still having the issue....any suggestions?08:09
dr_Willisfma243,  depending on how the rest of the hd is laid out. You may need to make a extended partition for the whole 5gb, then 2 logicals inside it. one of 4.5 gb for / and a .5gb for swap.08:09
fma243i ll try08:09
dr_Willisfma243,  i normally free up some space and make it 'unallocated' and let the ubuntu installer auto partition inside the unallocated space.08:09
fma243should i use ext2 or ext308:10

TweakerSo, how would I go about dual booting with PCLinuxOS08:34
dr_WillisTweaker,  install the other linux to different partitions, pick ONE os to controll grub. and edit the grub menu configs adding the other OS to it.08:35
TweakerAlright cool, how would I do that? I wanna keep Ubuntu as the main, but run PClinux as a side OS. Or even at the same time if  I can.08:36
magnetronsp00n: the "no version" tells us that the some of the library files are damaged. i assume that some of your other apps will show similar behaviour. "reinstalling" the libraries is not a good solution, as it would not fix all the damaged files. what you /should/ is that you should run a fsck "file system check" on your partition and see if it can fix it.08:36
bennyf11Hi, how do i get ubuntu 8.04 to work with a bcm4311 rev 02 WITHOUT ndiswrapper??08:36
user_Tweaker: running at the same second?08:37
sp00nmagnetron, thanks, I will try that.  I have not noticed any erratic behavior with any other applications.08:37
Rat409bennyf11: i couldn't w/o ndiswrapper same bcm rev 208:37
TweakerWhoops, I ment Running Ubuntu and PCLinux at the same time. I've heard of others running Windows and Linux Simultaneously08:38
bennyf11rat409: so ndiswrapper is the only way to go??08:38
dr_WillisTweaker,  You proberly should learn/read up on grub. befor doing the install of pclinux..  set up part of the hd as unallocated.  boot pclinux, let its installer install to the drives.. backup the pclinux grub menu.lst soemwhere you can find it.. and then compare the 2 from ubuntu and pclinux.  You will most likely have to do a bit of cut/pasteing from oneto the other to get both os's booting properly08:38
TweakerOh damn, alright. I guess I can do that. Thanks for the info.08:39
dr_WillisTweaker,  normally i install the other os;s first. then ubuntu last.  that way the other os's dont make it a pain to boot to ubuntu08:39
Rat409pclos may use lilo as default not sure tho08:39

Sa[i]nTI'm trying to install windows into virtualbox, any idea why it would freeze on the installing devices part?08:49
sp00nmagnetron, I should unmount file system before running fsck?  So since this is my booted partition I will have to run from ivedisc or somethign?08:49

sp00nmagnetron, if that doesn't work, is there anything else I could try / topics to research?08:50
sp00nSa[i]nT, I just did exactly that.  I would suggest giving it longer than you think it would need.08:51
Sa[i]nTsp00n, I've given it a while, did it take a long time for you?08:51
sp00nSa[i]nT, Yes it did.  I installed 98SE and XPSP2 in Qemu and both of them ran very slowly; I installed 98SE in VirtualBox and it ran very slowly.  XPSP2 runs perfectly in VirtualBox for me.08:52
macrobadnewuser_: Have you tried rhythmbox or banshee?08:53

mkquistnewuser_: rythmbox maybe08:53
Sa[i]nTsp00n, I'd say 20 minutes.08:54

Gincan you listen to an internet radio through banshee?08:56
magnetronsp00n: file system corruption is serious business. the problems you see now are just the tip of an ice berg. yes, the hard disk corruption has damaged your libs, and samba is one of the apps that is using these libs. you should run a fsck ASAP.08:56

sp00nmagnetic, from http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview?id=786136 : The cause according to  http://www.vmware.com/community/thread.jspa?messageID=480361 appears to be a library mismatch between the system used to create the executable program and the system you are running the program on.09:00

nano_Is PulseAudio a sound server, or just a sound mixer....i would think the technically correct term would be "mixer" because PulseAudio doesn't work with hardware at all, it simply deals with ALSA or OSS...09:08
dr_Willisnano_,  i though it went   'hardware -> alsa -> pulse audio -> end user apps'09:08
nano_Also, if you think about it, PulseAudio replaces dmix (an integral component of ALSA)..therefore it is incorrect to call PulseAudio a server, instead it should be called a mixer09:08
macrobadkontagious: Hmm.. I mean, start terminal, type 'sudo gparted' and try to repeat your actions that lead to errors. Gparted should start up in its own window, and probably print error messages in the terminal.09:09

nano_dr_Willis, you are right, and if PulseAudio wasn't there it would be hardware --> alsa (or OSS) --> dmix (part of alsa) --> end user application09:10

sp00nmagnetron, I have other applications that also give this error and they run fine, and I'm fairly certain samba gave this error when it worked OK.  I don't think it's the root of the samba issue.09:12

macrobadkontagious: No, you cannot resize your root partition from a running system. However, it should be possible to resize it seamlessly from a live cd. I recon gparted was giving a windows with two buttons if any errors occured, and those buttons were "Save report" and "Exit". Do you observe it?09:18

abhi_dr_Willis, : does vi support mouse. if so how to activate them10:09
abhi_dr_Willis, : let me install the gpm10:09
dr_Willisabhi_,  vim has some sort of mouse support mode. I never use it.10:09
solrizeright, ubuntu is a debian fork iirc10:09
dr_Willisabhi_,  i never use the mouse mode i mean.. I do use vim :)10:09
fr4nk-kabhi_: The graphical vim supports mouse. (gvim)10:09
solrizelsd|ninja i think you are right that fedora is getting worse10:09
abhi_dr_Willis, : then i will google it out10:09
dr_WillisI think ubuntu has gone beyond just a fork now. :)10:10

magnetronhi! i'm connecting to to a ssh server. the server is using a iso-latin1 (ISO8859-1) locale, my ubuntu client is using a UTF-8 locale. the characters are messed up, how should i connect to be able to view all chars?10:10
LSD|Ninjasolrize: I'm messing around with Fedora 9 right now. Ubuntu has it's rough edges but F9 really is the uncut stone fresh from the rock10:11
dr_Willismagnetron,  wouldent you set whatever terminal ssh is running in. to use the proper character set/locale?10:11
solrizelsd|ninja i'm still using fedora 3 and 4 on my other boxes10:11
dr_Willismagnetron,  i recall doing that with putty under windows at least.10:11
dr_Willis!info putty10:11
ubottuputty (source: putty): Telnet/SSH client for X. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.60-2build1 (hardy), package size 299 kB, installed size 744 kB10:11
LSD|Ninjathe linux putty sucks10:12
macrobadsolrize: I am really happy that Ubuntu comes with a limited number of packages installed by default. On the other hand, given that I don't need any restricted drivers, almost all the stuff can be found on a DVD. If you wish, I can even pastebin my list of packages (yeah, there is a lot of documentation ones!)10:12
solrizeubuntu is nicer than fedora in many ways, i just wish it had about the same packages as fedora10:12
solrizemacrobad yes i'd appreciate that pastebin10:12
dr_WillisLSD|Ninja,  never tried it.  :)10:12
Keule|guestGood morning10:12
pan0983good morning10:12
magnetrondr_Willis: i am using the standard ssh client. i know i can do it with putty i windows, but i am wondering how to do it with the standard ssh client10:12
LSD|NinjaFedora has a far better look to it than Ubuntu, Ubuntu seriously has to junk that babyshit brown theme10:13
Keule|guestcan some help me to connect my wm6 mobile phone with ubuntu - i want to share my UMTS in order to get online...10:13
solrizethat's not just a hardy theme?10:13
dr_Willismagnetron,  you mean ssh inside a gnome terminal then?  Putty for linux i just tried.. and it has the exact same options/features as the windows one does it seems.10:13
pestordear all, is it possible to get NetworkManager 0.7 up and running in hardy?10:13
pan0983sudo apt-get install network-manager-gnome ?10:14
LSD|NinjaUbuntu already has networkmanager...10:14
pan0983he said he wanted network manager?10:14
magnetrondr_Willis: i need to do it with the standard ubuntu ssh client... i don't want to be a prick or anything10:14
pestori dont think that will give me 0.710:14
LSD|Ninjapestor: what's in 0.7 that you really need?10:14
pestori *think* it's only available in fedora by default10:14
dr_Willismagnetron,  i THINK its more of an issue with the Terminal you are running SSH in. not ssh itself.10:14
magnetrondr_Willis: ok, thx10:15
pestorthe support for my 3g-dongle. i was struggling like crazy to et it working in hardy but eventually failed. in fedora is working out of the box with one click.10:15
dr_Willismagnetron,  there may be some variables you can set/locale and stuff.. but ive not messed with that stuff.10:15
solrizemacrobad were you going to pastebin a package list?10:16
pestorbut of course i dont want to run fedora :)10:16
magnetrondr_Willis: i tried that, but it "didn't work"10:16
voxhi, what work-around is there for the cd-burning bug?10:16
redbull_how about debian?10:16
dr_Willismagnetron,  you did 'export' the changes?  there may be a SSH faq somewhere that explains how to do it.10:16
solrizegnome terminal apparently has a character encoding menu10:16
LSD|Ninjapestor: sounds like a driver issue more than a network manager issue10:17
magnetrondr_Willis: i'm having troubles find such FAQs :(10:17

solrizemacrobad, thanks, i see there's a lot of doc packages, i believe in documentation, i'd be happy to install all the docs for every package ever released even for packages that i don't install10:21
redbull_its not very well10:21
solrizethat way if i think i want a package, i can read its docs beforehand10:21
Lukipeladont you hate it when you take a shower and you get out, and dry off, and then forget to rinse your hair?  ill brb.10:21
solrizei think there should be "apt-get install all-the-docs-for-everything"10:21
pan0983i agree10:21
solrizelukipela uhh no i don't think that has ever happened to me .... wow10:21
dr_Willissolrize,  make a meta-package then for it.  Seen that done by some people for their setups that they perfer.10:22

macrobadsolrize: All the packages are divided in groups, and you can find the "documentation" group there.10:23
solrizesynaptic is a gui thing that confused the heck out of me... i've been using aptitude because it gets the recommended additional packages when you install something, instead of just saying what they are and letting them whiz by the screen10:23

macrobadsolrize: No, I am not sure it is easily doable, but should be possible, if you a familiar enough with debian package management.10:25
ueLSD|Ninja, I read about that10:25
fr4nk-kredbull_: rigth10:25
solrizegoogle.com/search?q=barcode+linux finds a lot10:25

ueLSD|Ninja, but I need software that captures that input decodeds it and sends to a script10:26
redbull_i HATE Visa10:26
redbull_i HATE Vista !!10:26
dr_Willissolrize,  you could use the command line package tools to generate a list of all -doc packages then isntall from that list. I imagine.10:26
solrizedr_willis hmm10:26
LSD|NinjaI just *know* that when I reboot the wifi isn't going to work because the kernel has been upgraded and the fedora software updater doesn't seem to be pulling in the livna packages >_<10:26
redbull_fr4nk-k: right?10:26
uesolrize, yes find a lot thats the problem, so I am asking maybe some one has any experience with that, so I don't go all the find and try road10:27
solrizemacrobad your software install includes a bunch of servers... does the installation script actually start the servers running and listening and open up ports?  i'm not sure i want that10:27
fr4nk-kredbull_: yeah, i think vista's sh_t, too10:27
solrizeue oh i see10:27
fr4nk-kredbull_: but that doesn't blong in taht channel10:27
macrobadsolrize: I've smiled to someone installing the packages, I've made for myself. Actually, the reason I made it is to free myself from a hassle of customizing all the machines, I'm toying with.10:27

danielm_mcwith madwifi and wpasupplicant?10:28
voxthis is making me stabby.10:28
solrizemacrobad i think you have the right idea, build up a list of packages and keep re-using it10:29
solrizeit would be nice to be able to nest packages10:29
uesolrize, well cuecat in an abandoned project atm, so maybe some other better alternatives10:29

philsfhello, I just found out about SSL encryption for IRC, and set it up for the OFTC debian irc servers. I can't find out how to do the same for ubuntu (freenode) irc servers. Can any of you point me to some doc with info on this subject?10:30
jussi01philsf: ask in #freenode10:31
solrizefreenode has ssl?10:31
jussi01but I dont think freenode has ssl10:31
solrizei think it's kind of pointless since most people aren't using it10:31
vithosfreenode doesn't have ssl, last i checked10:31
SliMM_hello, my laptop's specification says that I have 4GB of RAM, but Ubuntu says that I only have 310:31
solrize32 bit?10:32
SliMM_I know, they could have been wrong and used a 1GB-chip instead of a 2GB one10:32
LSD|NinjaSliMM_: you probably want the amd64 ubuntu (yes, even if you have a Core 2)10:32
macrobadI don't think you freenode has ssl, but it supports tor10:32
SliMM_LSD|Ninja: won't it work awful?10:33
SliMM_LSD|Ninja: and I do have core 2 duo10:33

voxwhat work-around is there for the cd-burning bug?10:33
gordonjcpsolrize: not worth it, tbh10:33
_coredump_SliMM_, for 32bit you need to recompile your kernel to use more than 3gb ram10:33
qingfenghello everyone10:33
jussi01!tor | macrobad10:33
ubottumacrobad: TOR is a project aiming to provide anonymous connections via specialized !proxies - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/TOR for information and help - Note that TOR is blocked on most Ubuntu IRC channels, please see !hostmask and !tor-gpg10:33
solrizegordonjcp i'm not sure what tbh means but i think i get your drift :)10:34
gordonjcpsolrize: OpenBSD is basically NetBSD that doesn't work properly, with a project team headed up by an arrogant nobber10:34
orpheansolrize: to be honest10:34
quinnSliMM_, you'd better install the 64Bit10:34
solrizegordonjcp yeah that's about the impression i had... but they do seem to be more vigilant about locking stuff down10:34
LSD|Ninjaamd64 is a far better bet than dicking around with options to increase the address space in 32 bit10:34
gordonjcpsolrize: yeah, except they're not10:34
solrizeoh heh10:34
gordonjcpsolrize: they haven't got a *clue* how to do it properly10:34
macrobadjussi01: hmm... Anyway, I don't use it, but thanks.10:34
gordonjcpsolrize: and then TdR *lies* about how secure it is10:34
gordonjcpsolrize: like, the whole "no exploits in ten years thing" - except every time they find an exploit they change what they define an exploit as10:35
gordonjcpsolrize: like for instance a very serious buffer overrun that is a remote root vuln is "errata", not an exploit10:35
solrizei just saw there was another openssl bug in the past few days... i wonder if that affected them10:35
gordonjcpsolrize: well the openssl bug that affected Debian, Ubuntu et al was just Debian upstream vandalism10:36
solrizeno not that one a new one10:36
MrLukipelaOk, so now, after i set the video drivers to the correct chipset, the screen is completely messed up, and when i try to open a command prompt the system logs me off.10:36
solrizein the past week or so10:36
gordonjcpsolrize: people were fiddling with stuff they don't understand10:36
ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, #ubuntu+1 supports the development version of Ubuntu and #ubuntu-offtopic is for random chatter. Welcome!10:36
gordonjcpjussi01: you're right10:36
gordonjcpsolrize: we should take this to #u-ot10:36
solrizegordonjcp yeah that debian thing was outrageous10:37
