pantz_yeah its running at the mo12:45

jdubAdonijah-: okay, so, i think this is a good upstream evo bug05:20
Adonijah-jdub, wished I had grabbed the error when I saw it05:20
jdubAdonijah-: it basically means that if you don't have existing evo config (in gconf), it won't correctly migrate the actual data05:20

sn0wmanjsubl2, so you installed the kernel source, unpacked it, and set Nvidia setup05:41
sn0wman's flag to the path05:41
sn0wmancause that what i did, and it croaks over a gcc version mismatch05:41
linux_mafiai noticed alot of people on osnews were whining about no cd burning app, can you not install k3b? or is it just a matter of adding the right sources? is it in universe?05:42
jsubl2sn0wman, the kernel modules was already there.  I modprobe'd it manually first time. then added it to /etc/modules 05:42

bolivarwhat have you used so far?06:11
gardion_Actually mainly debian.06:11
jdubneighborlee: it should be pretty straight forward06:11
jdubneighborlee: install the linux-restricted-modules package for your kernel (apt-cache search linux restricted, and take your pick)06:12
jdubneighborlee: then install nvidia-glx06:12
gardion_Will ubunto have the kde desktop as well or is it choosing to use gnome.06:12
jdubneighborlee: then dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree8606:12
jsubl2a debian based distro with the very latest gnome attracked me.06:12
matthewjsdoes anyone know how to get suspend to disk to work?06:12
jdubgardion_: gnome by default, but kde is available in our unsupported 'universe' packages06:12
bolivarjdub: you have an apt server address for that?06:13

subterrificnot sure what log file you'd check for a related error08:41
ishis it possible to get gnome-terminal to use the standard X 7x14 font?08:42

roofythat i like :)09:18
Tomcat_Oh... didn't know that.09:18
ficusplanetFedora messes up GNOME in many ways, though.  Absolutely no way to enable menu editing in FC2.  Dumb panel layout by default.  Configuration tools that aren't community supported and not HIGified.09:19
Tomcat_Well, the point "debian based" beats everything else anyway. :)09:19
roofyficusplanet: that i agree with09:19
roofybut still what if i prefer kde?09:19
LoneTechUnot encouraging abuse of root is a nice touch.09:19
ishI'm kinda hoping ubuntu is free of some of the politic issues that bug down debian (or have bogged it down in the past)09:19
ficusplanetroofy: Don't use ubuntu if you like KDE.09:19
roofywhy not?09:20
Tomcat_I like KDE...09:20
Tomcat_I still use Ubuntu.09:20
Tomcat_I'd rather say: "Don't use Ubuntu if you dislike Gnome" :)09:20
roofydont get me wrong, i love gnome, but then again i used fedora-ish gnome09:20
roofygnome is just FAST09:20
jdubif you want a distro that includes KDE, you won't too interested in Ubuntu *just yet*09:20
roofybut there are some things i dont like about it09:20
LoneTechUI beg to differ, but I suppose it may seem fast compared to windows or kde09:21
roofysuch as gtk09:21
subterrificfedora is yuck09:21
ficusplanetWhat do you dislike about GTK?09:21
roofyi prefer qt over gtk anyday09:21
roofyits really hard to skin09:21
roofyand i cant stand the save/open dialogs09:21
roofythe kde/qt ones are much more intuitive09:21
LoneTechUerm, no. familiar is the word.09:22
ficusplanetI love the GTK 2.4 filechooser.09:22
LoneTechUthe only intuitive user interface is the nipple.09:22
roofyw.e it is i cant stand it09:22
roofyits too simple09:22
_1oo7keyboard's pretty easy to figure out too09:22
roofydoes debian/unbuntu use kudzu or a kudzu like system?09:24
LoneTechUI think discover and hotplug and hal take those jobs, basically?09:24
jdubroofy: hotplug09:24
roofyi see09:25
jdubroofy: no kudzu or discover (though discover is used briefly in the installer)09:25
LoneTechUbtw, nice touch with ifrename.09:25
roofyim just curious whether it works as good or better than kudzu09:25
jdubroofy: as good, if not better.09:25
roofyi used hotplug briefly when i was with gentoo09:25
roofydoes it use its own apt repo, or are the debian apt ones compatible?09:26

jdubficusplanet: that might have been an annoying bug we fixed after the cd was done09:27
jdubficusplanet: try upgrading and running dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree8609:27
subterrificroofy: gtk is much easier to skin than kde. just look at the number of gtk/metacity skins compared to kde 3 skins09:27
ficusplanetjdub: Sounds good.  I'll test again with the final.  Otherwise, he was very happy with the switch from Fedora.09:28
LoneTechUI would guess it tries to use EDID (DDC) data, which is often missing on laptops.09:28
_1oo7i had success with the dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 for the same reasons ( wondering how things were configured )09:28
jdubLoneTechU: but we do rad things to make laptop display detectino work too :)09:28

punkassman these canon drivers are evil09:37
LoneTechUtomcat: I can look around09:37
_1oo7jdub ; i was very excited to try bochs on a new PC i bought for the pipe dream of running windows on it and thus being able to rip win98 off my wife's laptop; but i lost my thunder after seeing how !quick bochs ran.  qemu is quicker, but is focused on emulating a linux, rather than a 386, right?09:38
Tomcat_LoneTechU: Just check the settings menus if there's a way to set the clock, and if there is, if you can set the hardware clock to UTC or local time zone.09:38
subterrificjdub: qemu emulating x86 on x86 machine?09:38
_1oo7( bochs being the win98 replacement running overtop of !windows, that is )09:38

punkassthere is a check box that says "Use UTC"09:38
jdubsubterrific: not sure if anyone's done x86 ubuntu on ppc ;)09:38

_1oo7oh, i dunno09:39
_1oo7never have run win4lin09:39
LoneTechUtomcat_: the date and time dialogue offers network sync and time zone settings, but does not mention if the hardware runs local time09:39
roofyanyone use yoper?09:39
LoneTechUUTC=yes in default/rcS09:39
subterrifici'd guess that anything is faster than bochs09:40
Tomcat_LoneTechU: Yeah that's my point... I'm dual-booting, and Ubuntu fucked my hardware clock by setting it to UTC. :)09:40
_1oo7i found bochs to be not be as fast as i was expecting, by a dreamcrushing order of magnitude, so, if win4lin is only a bad-day order of magnitude, i suppose that is a plus09:40

pittinawty: apache and php are really a tricky issue10:29
nawtypitti: of course, but thats a whole lot of effort that other distributions have seem'ed to avoid :) 10:29
pittinawty: it is tricky because you have to depend on a _set_ of mutually exclusive packages10:29

Kamion_axel: you can of course disable it if this isn't true02:12
jonoKamion, ahhh right02:12
Keybuk_axel: sudo is as secure as su, some suggest more-so because you don't need a shared root password that can be "found out".  And the user created during install is the only one given sudo access by default, and they're the one that generally sets the root password anymore02:12
_axelKamion, it isnt cause i created a foo user first (because my files in my $HOME partition have uid 1001 so i want them to match my real user when i create it)02:12

YcrosI thought reiser4 was finished?02:53

RobarI have a quick kinda newbie question about the install, could someone possibly help me out?03:55
jdubRobar: for sure, fire away03:55
Kamionazeem: actually, the installer really uses devfs at the moment, not udev03:56
azeemyeah, I've noticed03:56
RobarWhen I installed, I had to use the noapic and nolapic option, or else the installer would hang before it got to the language detections screen.03:56
RobarAfter a successful install, the system reboot, I get "Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel." And then it hangs, it won't go any further.03:56
KamionRobar: the noapic and nolapic options don't currently get copied into your grub configuration03:57
KamionRobar: it's on my list of things to fix before final release03:57
RobarThat's what I was wondering... I know how to edit grub before boot, but what/where do I add those options?03:57
KamionRobar: in the meantime, press escape at the countdown to get the grub menu, and edit the kernel line of the topmost menu entry, adding 'noapic nolapic' to the end03:57
Kamionthen 'b' to boot into that03:58
Riddelljdub: installer problem I mentioned to you http://muse.19inch.net/~jr/tmp/ubuntu-installer.png03:58

Kamion(though you might be able to tell it to, I don't know grub all *that* well)03:59
RiddellKamion: that would make sense, not a very clear error message then04:00
stoffel(2) when selecting windows in grub, i get "ntldr not found"04:00

psii thought only xemacs came with a python mode per default, but i might be wrong08:40
