ubottujb12: To install a Java runtime on Ubuntu, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java. For the Sun Java products and browser plugin, search for the sun-java6- packages in the !partner repository on Lucid (which must be enabled), or !multiverse repository on older releases.00:03
ActionParsnipandaluz: i'd check the legality, lost CDs don't mean you can download stuff for free00:03
jb12Package sun-java6-jre has no installation candidate00:03
rwwubottu: partner | jb1200:03
ubottujb12: Canonical's partner repositories provide packages a location for software vendors to publish applications. The repo itself can be added by running this in a !terminal: « sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner" »00:03

nakhlawintr0py: if you have a re-writable CD, then you can chmod those files. (I think).00:08
ntr0pynakhlawi: you think the permissions are set inside the iso?00:08
LetsGo67What about Huawei E182E how do I use that in Ubuntu?  It makes me sad because I can't find it in the Novell Network Internet Manager and so I don't know where it hid.  It must be small like a mouse and so I can't find it anywhere that I look because it is so small and hidden.00:09

ActionParsnipMeXTuX: 32bit is still more supported by 3rd party sources but you can use either. If you have less than 3Gb ram and only need "normal" desktop stuff then I'd shoot for 32bit00:15

ubottueternalswd_work, please see my private message00:17
jk_kill3r3k, Apparently the 10.04 packages do that with "vga=" if you have nvidia drivers. The cure is to not use the vga= option any more. Use "GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=1024x768" or whatever resolution you want, in /etc/default/grub, instead.00:17
nakhlawiSwistaczek: you need to check the run level scripts00:18
castActionParsnip: given ubuntu is marketed as a free operating system, i don't see why we should make concessions to non-free garbage.00:18

kill3r3kjk_, thx will try it! but I dont have nvidia card00:19
casti find the best way to deal with crap hardware is to not own any00:19
nakhlawiSwistaczek: if the login is using bash, then you can use the bash configuration files.00:19
ActionParsnipcast: its a constraint of the poor support, yes but if thats what the user has bught into then they must play the game00:19
Swistaczeknakhlawi: for example .bashrc in profile?00:19
sebsebsebcast: indeed its a good idea to buy Linux compatible hardware, if going to run it00:19
ActionParsnipcast: either way telling users to always install 64bit OS just because they have a 64bit cpu is impractical00:20
Swistaczeknakhlawi: How I can run system command via bash ?00:20
nakhlawiSwistaczek: Your users are logging in through which means? CLI or GUI?00:20

castActionParsnip: why is it impractical when using free software?00:20
wentori want to install the nvidia drivers but i need to reboot without X, how i do that?00:21
nakhlawiSwistaczek: then you need to check the login scripts of the GUI itself, bash scripts won't help you.00:21
jk_kill3r3k, It works for me with an old ATI card; be sure to run update-grub after making the change though. It won't have any effect until you do.00:21

sebsebsebcast: I haven't been following the whole convo, but sometimes 32bit works better than 64bit,  maybe thats the point ActionParsnip is trying to make00:21
ActionParsnipcast: its not, but you don't know 100% of the situation so making a solid decision on partial data is immature, if you present the user with the details then they can see what they have etc and make a choice that way00:21
nakhlawiSwistaczek: Sure.00:21

RichardRaseleyjk_: So eth0 works fine after I configured its properties in /etc/networking/interfaces00:29
RichardRaseleyjk_: That is the one NIC that has a default GW.00:29
hikupaddy_melon: I'm done. you know when you have a thought, you just have to get it out. =)00:29
paddy_melonhiku, I understand00:29
kill3r3kjk_, GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=1280x1024 and it works as a charm, thanks!!!00:29
jk_RichardRaseley, Then /etc/network/interfaces should work provided each adapter comes up with the same "eth" number every time. You can create udev rules to force this; I use that on my own router box.00:29
eternalswd_workRichardRaseley:  I can't tell completely your issue, but make sure ifconfig -a shows all of the devices, and you may want to look at /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules00:30
RichardRaseleyjk_: The other two didn't get picked up (or at least no settings created by default) during the install. So I just created the settings in the interfaces file.00:30

edbianjpds, Oh!  That was at typo! :P  Whoops00:34
edbianlahwran, Sorry about that I'll be more careful next time.00:35
jk_RichardRaseley, what the file does is to force the eth names during the boot process, so that if the numbers change from one boot to the next -- which they can and often do -- they will remain corrected. It's strange at first and takes some getting used to, but I find it great in practice, since I can swap eth0 and eth2 just by editing the file and re-booting.00:35

lahwranapparently, kubuntu doesn't come with software sources.00:35
RichardRaseleyjk_: Makes sense, thanks for the info. In this case I can see the MAC addresses and match them up to what I think they should be based on the Hyper-V manager.00:35

hiexpoLetsGo67, let us know when it occurs in 203200:39
jk_RichardRaseley, Network Manager is supposed to ignore any interfaces that are defined in /etc/network/interfaces and in my experience, it does. You can add a couple of files in /etc/default to totally disable Network Manager, though. I can tell you how if you want to do so; both are one-liners.00:39
ActionParsnipgeohacker: or whatever page you wish00:39
geohackerActionParsnip: but this is where I'm stuck. I need to login, during the login process it displays Unknown TImeZone Error00:39

geohackerActionParsnip: no what? :(00:41

LetsGo67For Wi-Fi I would use OpenDNS.00:42
ActionParsnipinfid: the command line is pretty simple though00:43
jk_RichardRaseley, The command I used was "sudo echo "exit" >/etc/default/Default-Manager" and the same thing with different filename for the other. Takes effect at the next re-boot.00:43

LetsGo67hiku and edbian, let's see...00:48
ActionParsnipRichardRaseley: echo something | sudo tee /path/to/file00:49
edbianLetsGo67, conky is hard to set up.  You need to manually write an exhaustive config file.  Many people copy / paste someone elses.00:49
edbianLetsGo67, screenlets is probably the easiest.  The entire setup is gui driven.00:49

jk_RichardRaseley, It was to enable ipv4 forwarding; the line in /etc/sysctl is "net.ipv4.ip_forward=1" and it's originally commented out. Remove the comment, then run "sudo sysctl -p" to reload and enable forwarding between the different interfaces.00:55

HPLmy question regarding using PAE kernels is a little more advanced. I have a Thinkpad X201 and there was an intel driver bug which was patched in a 2.6.32- custom kernel provided by a kernel team member. The problem is that this kernel doesn't have PAE. As of 2.6.35-2 maverick (via mainline kernel ppa), the problem is fixed. Is it possible to have 2.6.35-2-maverick with PAE or would I need to compile the kernel myself?01:10

xiongOkay, guys, I've been talking on ##linux and guys have pointed me to "extended attributes" and user_xattr. All my partitions are ext3. Is it safe to set user_xattr on my partitions in fstab and reboot? Dangerous? Foolish? Somewhere in between?02:42

sacarlsonShadowww:  you can't get better than that in System>preferences>montors ?  you should also try System>adminitration>Hardware drivers.02:51
LibertyZeroShadowww: No. The binary nvidia driver simply does not support kernel mode setting.02:51
ShadowwwLibertyZero, there's no possibility to use vga= parameter either?02:52
sacarlsonxiong: change after boot?  I think fstab will only change something at the point of time of mount.02:52
xiongsacarlson, I'm sure you're right.02:53
sacarlsonxiong: so you can unmount and remount to activate your new fstab settings.02:53
sacarlsonxiong: but you wouldn't want to do that to your root partition that you are currently running.  for that you would have to chroot or reboot02:54

csmith1994are you serious i dont have a windows computer at my disposal03:12

csmith1994so i'm stuck with this. i used to like linux but lately it's been workaround this workaround that.03:12
maurer_Sc00t3r: That's old. You cannot use iPhones/iPod touches with linux, they changed their database so it's a signed format.03:12
Sc00t3rcsmith1994: I am very serious. I don't think you can do it straight from Linux unless you install iTunes on Linux.03:12

progre55guest: no matter what, it is highly recommended to defragment your hard drive before you install dual boot03:34
Jordan_UTiK: GRUB_DEFAULT in /etc/default/grub, you can either use a number or use the full menu entry title (so it doesn't change when a new kernel is installed). For instance: GRUB_DEFAULT='Ubuntu GNU/Linux, with Linux 2.6.32-24-generic (recovery mode)'03:34
guestok Ill try defragmenting the drive and come back if that doesnt work.03:35

Jordan_Uprogre55: ntfsresize works fine on fragmented filesystems, the myth that you need to defrag first is so common that they put "Defragmentation is NOT required prior to  resizing  because  the program can  relocate  any  data  if  needed,  without  risking  data integrity." in bold in the ntfsresize man page.03:38
Jordan_UTiK: sudo grep menuentry /boot/grub/grub.cfg | grep -o '".*"'03:39

wedwoThe new partition is going to be allocated free space - unallocated blocks - and then start allocating them to the new file system. No amount of defragmenting will change the way the blocks are allocated03:41

undecimCallum_Laptop: Really? I thought that it dropped a lot of root privs with KMS. And I didn't think it was a function of root, but rather devicekit or in older versions hal. There used to be a command (devkit-disks --unmount, I think) in older versions for this, but that doesn't seem to be available in 10.0404:16

rpcesarif i do an apt get of 1.2 it will revert me, however, the command then still fails04:16
sacarlsonperlsyntax: it didn't work out of the box?  maybe try the backport alsa package I see in synaptic04:17
thune3rpcesar: you don't need wineprefix create anymore, you just export WINEPREFIX="whatever" and any following wine command will create the internals if they don't exist.04:17
perlsyntaxwhat you mean?04:17
dougb_freebsdKE1HA: thanks, that got me a lot farther along, but now i'm running into pkg-config errors (although I don't rule out that this is a problem of the sources I'm trying to compile)04:17
rpcesarhmmm, but I kinda tried that and it and it bailed stating that it didnt have the windows directory04:17
Callum_Laptopundecim: yeah, but the actual mounting/unmounting is a function that can only be performed by root, and the X server actually running as root (with the GUI account not being root) being why it can mount/umount things without permission04:18
dapenguinhello, can anyone answer any questions on ati cards?04:18

dougb_freebsdKE1HA: yes, that seems to have come in with the build-essential package, but it can't find the pidgin.pc file04:19
rpcesarit bailed in that stating i did not have a windows directory, so it was not a valid wine prefix04:19

undecimCallum_Laptop: Are you sure? Because I've done this before in the past, it just doesn't work with this version of Ubuntu. From what I understand, X should no longer have to run as root (even though it still does) because the graphics card was the last hurdle, and KMS keeps X from dealing with that. So it this going to be a problem too before someone writes something to replace devicekit, which replaced hal?04:20

You cannot format a volume larger than 32 gigabytes (GB) in size using  the FAT32 file system during the Windows XP installation process.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314463  maybe you can have multi volumes that add up to bigger than 32gig05:56

X32arvind_khadri, thats the command that works for me just put in the correct IP, interface where eth1 is, port. and you should be good, check your router too.....07:55
arvind_khadriX32, -s should be the ip of the client right, from which I want to accept ?07:57
X32arvind_khadri, yes I use that to make my computer talk to my PS3 which is that is a direct wire connection however so make sure if a router is involved you forward the ports....07:58
X32arvind_khadri, also you might need to do the same command and replace tcp with udp to open both types of data.07:59
arvind_khadriX32, i want this kind of setup tcp        0      0  *               LISTEN08:00

ectospasmsacarlson: from UbuntuOne08:26
sacarlsonectospasm: what process?08:26
ectospasmThe sync daemon08:26
ectospasmIt seems to run periodically, consuming I/O (leaving the CPU in a large amount of iowait % according to top and iostat)08:27
ectospasmlike 40-50%08:27
ectospasmAlso, when it happens, input seems to block if it requires disk access.08:28

p0pc0rnis there anyone who could help me save my system in rescue mode08:29
sacarlsonectospasm: what version of ubuntu is this?08:29
ectospasmsacarlson: iotop does report that the sync daemon is running when my HDD light goes solid on08:29
SliMMI'll start by saying that I like the new Ubuntu.08:29
well_laid_lawnp0pc0rn:  depends on the issue.. :]08:29
ectospasmsacarlson: it's taken me a while to track it down, and the only positive ID on the process has been sync daemon for Ubuntu One08:30
p0pc0rnwell_laid_lawn, i have no idea what the issue is08:30
sacarlsonectospasm: Ubuntu One what is that a user?08:30
well_laid_lawnp0pc0rn:  k - you are in rescue mode - why?08:30
SliMMBut I still have some trouble with my video card drivers (ATI, who would've guessed).08:30
ectospasmsacarlson: Ubuntu One is the cloud storage service provided to Ubuntu users.08:30
ectospasm2GB storage for free08:31
ectospasm50GB for a "low" fee08:31
sacarlsonectospasm: oh ok so it's some kind of rsync service.08:31

nsari start to get familiar with ubuntu but i am forced to use it as root cause the nm-applet doesn't show my mobile broadband connection when i enter as a normal user what should i do?08:31
p0pc0rnwell_laid_lawn, i have no idea. when i rebooted my computer i was presented with a text based installer. it looks like the mini installer. i chose rescue mode because it is the closes i can get at this point to booting my current install.08:31
SliMMHowever, I have installed the drivers and they should be enabled08:31
ectospasmsacarlson: sorta, it runs on Python08:31
sacarlsonectospasm: I don't use it,  maybe you can cron it so it runns later08:31
SliMMany thoughts?08:32
ectospasmsacarlson: it's a daemon, I don't know about running it in cron08:32
ectospasmit's not like a script that runs and exits.08:32
well_laid_lawnp0pc0rn:  so reading between the lines you couldn't boot so put in a live cd?08:32
ubottuUbuntu One is a service where you can back up, store, sync and share your data with other Ubuntu One users - For more see https://one.ubuntu.com/ support and help available at #ubuntuone08:32

intoksacarlson What exactly does the Restricted Extras even get me aside from redundant media players? The same files play fine locally, they just wont play when loaded via FTP08:34

There were 2 other drives, one flash usb and one large external usb drive, attached to the computer when I restarted it that also wouldn't mount when I tried to plug them into another ubuntu system. The error message they gave wh10:28
pie_timeen my system tryed to auto mount them was, eg, "Unable to mount 2.0 GB Filesystem", "Unauthorized". Could anyone please help save my system?10:28

Gneasacarlson: ipv4 and ipv6 were developed using unix/linux, initially. microsoft came along and just interpretted the RFC's and available source code. Apple didn't have to do a thing, since BSD took care of it all for them.10:29
eltewlunavorax, what version are you using?10:29
lunavoraxeltew, 10.0410:29
sacarlsonpie_time told you guys don't bother with FDE just encrypt one users /home/account.  you guys create problems for yourself.10:30
castencrypting just /home/account is not enough.10:30

pie_timeGnea, are you able to help?10:31
FastReadingGnea: thanks, I had read the opposite10:31
eltewlunavorax, do the following: System → Preferences → Keyboard10:31

Kwpolskafaster way to enable/disable this10:32
Kwpolska5 is left mouse button, shift or ctrl makes it right10:32
lunavorax-o- that was that simple, sorry i didn't find it without your help eltew10:32
sacarlsonpie_time you can use tripwire if your paranoid about someone corupting your system files10:32

pie_timeGnea, no10:34
pie_timeGnea, im saying they also had mount problems10:34
sacarlsongogeta: so what is pie_time or me going to do with this secure bit?10:34
Gneapie_time: so unplug them from the bricked system, and plug them into a system you know works correctly.10:34
pie_timeGnea, i have one of the drives plugged into my working system right now10:35
pie_timeand it says "Unauthorized"10:35

gogetasacarlson: i think i cought the party abought destrying files and that was all thought he was asking for a secure delete10:38

pie_timeGnea, thats ok10:40
castsacarlson: encryption doesn't provide that10:40

SAngeligogeta, I did not properly explain. Here anothe way: what is the exact equivalent of what I do when I install ubuntu on a PC, I turn it on and have my ubuntu running with GNOME GUI interface and do all my stuff through GUI not command line?10:46

qwdI installed Ubuntu with a usb memory and grub was installed on the usb memory, not the hard drive, so now I need to have the usb drive plugged in in order to start the laptop. How do I put grub on the hard drive? I'm guessing it should be in the unencrypted /boot partition (doing full disk encryption here)?10:47

SAngeligogeta, when I installed ubuntu (which I do not know if server or desktop version) what do I need to acchieve the same things from my Windows PC?10:47

NewaSAngeli: or applications / internet / remote desktop viewer10:49

sometuxHow I can make gnome terminal remember its last position and size when i open it?10:55
mnesacarlson, I think I found out why it isn't working: The system doesn't go down to sleep with pm-suspend either. I had a look at /var/log/pm-suspend.log and found out that pm-suspend tries to call a script that no longer exists: "/usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/95ups-monitor suspend suspend:invoke-rc.d: unknown initscript, /etc/init.d/ups-monitor not found." So why does it try to call a script that no longer exsts anywhere ?10:55
sacarlsonmne: I thought you said it worked in root.10:56
* france1159 says hello to everyone10:57
sacarlsonmne: ups-monitor is for uninteruptable powersupply monitor why do you need that for suspend?10:57
mnesacarlson, yes it did yesterday ;) But then I removed ups-monitor and now it still tries to call the init script that is no longer there10:57
sometuxIs there a way to make gnome terminal remember it's last size and position?10:57
sacarlsonmne: so what do you need a dummy ups-monitor script just to make it run?10:58
mnesacarlson, the script existed in /etc/pm/sleep.d as my old UPS used the serial port for communication which did not work correctly after waking up from suspend. The script solved the problem by restarting the ups-monitor10:58
erUSULsacarlson: pass the --geometry option ?10:59
sacarlsonerUSUL: I'm not sure I know what a --geometry option is?10:59
mnesacarlson, I suppose that would work. But I'm still puzzled why pm-suspend tries to call a script that no longer exists. I also did a 'grep -Rin "ups-monitor" /etc/*" but found nothing10:59
qwdsometux: let me know if you find out how11:00
sometuxqwd, are you kidding?11:00

sometuxcast, even icewm that I used in the past did11:02

castsappel: if it's going to be routing to say the internet you will though11:03
sappelthen it should be fine, thanks11:03

HamledHi, I'm currently upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04 on the server version, and the installation stalled when upgrading libc6.

Esatjrib: i want to translate this files to my language12:28
jribEsat: I believe you work with .po files12:29

Hamledjrib, I upgraded with update-manager. I was at first on 8.10, and I upgraded to 9.04 and then from 9.04 to 9.10. Both of those succeeded with minor hiccups (first time I tried to 3-way merge smb.conf and that failed, but reconfiguring with a different option worked, the second time bind9 failed because it hung trying to get a socket on startup, again the reconfiguration worked). Since libc6 was updated both of those times and it used th12:30
jribEsat: those links were for you.  Also, if there's a translation team setup for your language, get in touch with them12:30
jribHamled: your message was truncated at "it used th"12:31
Hamledit used the same start/status/restart commands (all of which give the same error), I must assume they worked before12:31
HamledI did not restart my machine between those upgrades, as I am not currently at the machine and was kind of (probably stupidly) hoping that it wouldn't be a problem if I only restarted after the final upgrade12:31
erUSULHamled: have you tried restarting dbus ?12:32
HamledI killed the dbus-daemon and reran dbus-daemon --system12:32
Hamled(I did it taht way because the init scripts aren't working)12:32
erUSULHamled: "sudo restart dbus"12:33
laegi've used nautilus to search for documents of a certain name, can i somehow search the text contained in each of the many found items for a certain string of text?12:33
jribHamled: apt-cache policy dbus  (what version is installed?)12:34
Hamledthat just stalls, as with the other commands. Now that I think of it, the Name not found error was probably due to me attempting to run it with user privileges, so my bad on that. But when I run any of those commands with sudo they just wait infinitely12:34
sacarlsonlaeg: I don't know how to do that in nautilus but from the command line you can use the grep function to search for strings inside files12:35
Hamled1.2.16-0ubuntu9 is installed and 1.2.16-2ubuntu4 is the candidate12:36
sacarlsonlaeg: example grep "thisstring" *.txt   will search for "thisstring" in all *.txt files12:36
laegsacarlson: there are over a hundred files of the same name, scattered in different places, can i use to to search all documents name PowerAuras.lua for the string rupture?12:36
laegso grep "rupture" PowerAuras.lua?12:36
jribHamled: so the issue now is that with sudo, the stop start and status commands just hang?  I assume the same is true of 'sudo service WHATEVER start'?12:37
Hamledyes, it seems that way12:38
jribHamled: what service are you using to test?12:38

burguahow to switch gnome to kde in Ubuntu? By default it was ubuntu, installed kde-minimal12:59
erUSULcast: the data you store in swap is throw away. you loose it on averyboot. why protect against disk faliure ?12:59
Dr_Willisburgua:  the GDM/KDM login screen has a menu item to select12:59
burguaDr_Willis: yup, but bydefault is ever GNOME13:00
casterUSUL: RAID1 is used to increase availability, can you see how if you didn't mirror swap and you lost a disk, it would result in a loss of services?13:00
jribsacarlson: grep 'string' **/*.txt    because find is evil and stuff13:00
Dr_Willissacarlson:  the ting with '*' in bash is to rember its the SHELL parseing the * and passing the matched  files/dirs to the command. Not the command.13:00
Dr_Willisburgua:  i select KDE here on my GDM login windos and it uses KDE for me..13:00
discozohancast: what layers are you talking about ? ;) I am unable to find tutorial for installation of software raid 10. So i just took 4 drives, on each of them created 1 partition, made raid 10 with 4 active devices and 0 spare, installed lvm and used all this for /home directory.13:00
discozohanbut ubuntu can't load /home directory13:01
Dr_Willisburgua:  are you saying your selection dosent work? or you cant select KDE?13:01
erUSULcast: ok fair enough13:01
xzil0burgua, i think you will first need to install kubuntu-desktop package13:01
castdiscozohan: can you pastebin /proc/mdstat :)13:01
burguaDr_Willis: selection works. But Every boot I must to select KDE13:01
Dr_Willisburgua:  check your .dmrc file13:01
burguaDr_Willis: Session=kde13:02
casterUSUL: fairly common mistake, though a serious one if you're running important apps13:02

rabbit_kanI wanna know that why every time when I make some settings, i always need to reboot my system, I heard that linux doesn't need to restart,is that true?13:12
LinuxNewbie"In Empathys settings"... how? I have looked and found nothing that allows me to delete or better, disable logging of conversations.13:13
Dr_Willisrabbit_kan:  what settings? Ive rarely needed to reboot for any settings that i can think of.13:13
sebsebsebtwmi: Now I don't like Chrome much, but  if you get the closed source one from Google yep Chrome they have Flash built in.  However first I would recommend trying browsers such as,  Arora, Epiphany, Galeon, and Konqueror.13:13
sometuxkad_, sendmail is MTA which handles sending and receiving email only, for pop3 you need another software13:14

LinuxNewbiehow are you all directing replies @ each other? What's all this:13:14
LinuxNewbieusername: "post body" business?13:14
ubottuUbuntu supports the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) and provides mail server software of many kinds. You can install a basic email handling configuration with the "Mail server" task during installation, or with the "tasksel" command. See also https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MailServer and https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/email-services.html13:14

Dr_Willis!tab | LinuxNewbie13:15
ubottuLinuxNewbie: You can use your <tab> key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.13:15
discozohansometux: so, md1 = system raid1, md2 = home raid 10; i can't get, why it's resyncing ?13:15
discozohansometux: does it mean, that i've done incorrect installation somewhere ?13:16
rabbit_kanDr_willis:some software,for example fcitx,is there anyway to replace the restart way to let my setting be useful right away?13:16

sometuxkad_, postfix13:16
Dr_Willisrabbit_kan:  no idea what fcitx is.13:17

LinuxNewbiesebsebseb: Do you have or are using Empathy? I would very much like to disable the logging of everything I view and type in this program.13:19
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: I have been using Empathy a bit recently, for Facebook chat13:19
Dr_WillisLinuxNewbie:  if you are using empathy for just irc.. you may want to get a differnt/better irc client.13:19
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: normally I would do that in Pidgin, but I had a little issue with that on my current non Ubuntu distro13:20
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: logs can be useful, and most people will have a personal log of them being on IRC13:20
kad_sometux, thx =)13:20
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: there are even logs of this channel public logs13:20
sebsebseb!logs | LinuxNewbie13:20
ubottuLinuxNewbie: Official channel logs can be found at http://irclogs.ubuntu.com/ - For LoCo channels, http://logs.ubuntu-eu.org/freenode/13:20
Dr_WillisWe can grep the logs and get a top 10 asked question summary.13:21
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: Why do you want to disable logs?13:21
Dr_WillisThat would be an interesting bit of codeing for a program to automate that.13:21
discozohani have raid 10, that "was not ready" while booting. Now i see in dmesg row "md2: resync done", so how can i load it manually ?13:21
LinuxNewbiesebsebseb: There's so little digital privacy, if any, in developed countries that I don't need my own computer to be logging everything I do.13:22
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: ok13:22
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: What are you using Empathy for?13:22
LinuxNewbiesebsebseb: Replacement of Bill Gates chat IM.13:22
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: oh for MSN uhmm13:22
sometuxdiscozohan, I'm not sure but i think you have to use /dev/md2 in your fstab13:23
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: Empathy will be alright for that, but there are better programs for that sucky chat network as well13:23
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: Such as Emesene,  AMSN, and Kmess13:23
LinuxNewbiesebsebseb: I would drop my MSN account altogether but that would mean phoning around everyone telling them I have a new account. Empathy is pre-installed so I thought I would try that first.13:24
LinuxNewbiesebsebseb: Guess I will use something called "Pidgin". Hope that doesn't log everything as well?13:24
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: uhmm13:25
discozohansometux: ok, but i have last question: why ubuntu can't make normal installation ? Why have they included raid10, if it can't normally load ? I am confused13:25
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: just looked at Empathy and I can't seem to find the thing for logs13:25
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: Pidgin is nice, and it does log, but you can turn that off easilley13:25
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: maybe there isn't something in Empathy to turn off logs hrm13:25
LinuxNewbiesebsebseb: It raises the question. Why log everything the user does and not warn them or let them turn it off? Not a good move on part of the developers.13:26
FastReadingLinuxNewbie: if you don't want the logs and cannot find the option to disable them, you can do the following: wipe the directory the program creates in your /home folder. It's normally the application's name preceded by a dot13:26
shirtlessIs there any gnome integration available for easy stroke? Like an applet?13:26
FastReadingLinuxNewbie: definitely a bad move, the same happens with skype and msn if I am not mistaken13:26
shirtless(I am thinking about writing it, want to make sure it doesn't exist)13:26
dmex01FastReading: you can disable logging in msn13:27

FastReadingdmex01: I know, I was answering to LinuxNewbie, who said that having logs enabled by default was a bad move13:27
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: you can with Empathy some how as well I expect, and the other programs that were just mentioned, you can there quite easilely13:28

seekalanaFUCK YOU13:38
seekalanaJUST FUCK OFF PLEASE13:38
sebsebseb!ops | seekalana13:38
FastReadingsebsebseb: in order to know exactly where empathy stores all the data, it would probably be good to trace its system calls. The application can be run with "strace" and the system calls stored to a file, then the file can be filtered piping its output with "grep", so that only lines with "O_WR", "RDWR", "mkdir", "rename",etc. are listed, that would probably give the most accurate information about all the places it is storing data13:38

sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: well you can still use the program, without saving your password, if your concerned about that13:40

Seeker`root___: what are you trying to do?13:42
Baram2Ok, I'm still having issues with WIRED network connection.  Ubuntu 9.10, 64b, problems happened after installing updates from repos (I remember a new kernel, 2.6.32-24).  Tried removing network-manager and using wicd, seemed to work but connection lost 1.5 hours later an unable to recover.13:42
LinuxNewbiesebsebseb: I don't understand any of the setup requirements. It asks for all manner of technical details such as "POP" and "IMAP" servers etc.13:42
LinuxNewbiesebsebseb: I am sure I have set it up incorrectly. I want to receive the emails sent to my hotmail account and display them in the client instead of through the web browser at "http://www.login.live.com".13:42

Baram2Add, other machines connected to that router are still working fine, problem computer cannot even ping the router/gateway13:42
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: oh hotmail, uhmm  I would suggest using gmail.com13:42
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: also email clients, personally I don't bother,  plus I don't really get that much email anyway that I need to see, but even if I did,  I would probably prefer web mail13:43
discozohansometux: fail ;< Dmesg shows "EXT4-fs (md2): VFS: Can't find ext4 filesystem. How do you think, was it correct to define 4 active devices and 0 spare devices for raid10 ? May be problem about it ?13:44
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: email clients, in my eyes are old fashioned technology,  that older people tend to want to use,  and business people of course13:44

axhyniclinuxNewbie: http://lifehacker.com/5169684/hotmail-finally-enables-pop3-worldwide13:44
discozohansometux: or may be i should reinstall and simply use raid10 with 6 drives for whole system? -.-13:44
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: and if I was to use an email client, yeah maybe evolution,  but I quite like Mozilla stuff, so Thunderbird13:45

discozohansometux: yeah, i know. The question was about: may be it would be correct to use 2 active and 2 spare devices = 4 devices, but not 4 active and 0 spare -.- It's just suppose13:46
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: and if you have an email client set up in Ubuntu, and then later want to re  install or even distro change for that matter,  even with a seperate /home which is pretty useful,  it  may not pick up on all the email settings13:46
sometuxdiscozohan, have you created a filesystem (formatted) the new raid1013:46

LinuxNewbiesebsebseb: Since I got ubuntu it seems all I have done is configure this, alter that. Now that everything looks how I want it and it's configured (more or less) how I like it, how can I backup those changes. I mean hard drives can and do die:'(13:47
slawas"apt-get install atp" What ATP is? :-)13:48
sometuxdiscozohan,  to format try sudo mkfs -t ext4 /dev/md213:48
kuttan_sometux what does this command do ? , I justed executed it on my system13:49
kuttan_ sudo mkfs -t ext4 /dev/md213:49
sebsebsebLinuxNewbie: as far as I know backup isn't that easy with Ubuntu, compared to certain other Linux distros.   However your user settings will be in  /home  which you can move to a seperate partition.  I have never done that myself after doing an install,  I would set one up before I install a Linux distro.  However doing it afterwoulds with Ubuntu probably isn't that difficult.13:49

ubottuLinuxNewbie: Your home directory is where all of your personal files are usually kept. For moving your home directory to a separate partition, please see: http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/separatehome13:49
kuttan_and its taking some time ..13:49
discozohansometux: oh, i got it, thanks. Raid was created this way: created partitions on all 4 drives, installed raid10, then installed lvm, created volume group and one volume label called "home". Then defined mount point to "/home" and filesystem as "ext4". This way was created raid1, that works correctly ( except on raid1 were also swap partitions )13:49

ubottuYou should avoid noisy away messages and -nicks in a busy channel like #ubuntu, or other Ubuntu channels; it causes excessive scrolling which is unfair to new users. Use the command "/away <reason>" to set your client away silently.  See also «/msg ubottu Guidelines»14:19
