seth_slackware partition magic = commercial12:07
JonMright ok12:07
ToothpickJonM: I've used kanotix to repartition without data loss.12:07
ToothpickI believe it uses qtparted12:07
JonMthanks Toothpick12:07
schweebthere's a GPLed utility out there I think12:07
schweeblemme google real quick12:07
matt_basically though, you just need to shorten your drive and leave unused space at the end of it..12:07
subterrificparted is GNU software that does it, but i'm not sure it can deal with ntfs partitions12:08
cleesubterrific: the latest versions can12:08
cleethey can nondestructively resize it12:08
JonMyeah thanks matt_ - I figured I'd need to do something like that - now I'll see if I can find the tools to do it, and then I'm gonna start using Linux!12:08
cleethey are teh neat12:08
JonMexcellent: parted / kanotix / parti.magic12:09
=== keifer [~keifer@238.41.cm.sunflower.com] has joined #ubuntu
schweebdon't use parted from ubuntu12:09
matt_jonM: Then in the ubuntu installer you have a choice of erasing the whole drive or manually doing things. Obviously you want manual.. which really isn't manual afterall. You just select the unused space (it is very apparent) and let it partition automatically.12:09
Toothpickntfsresize 12:09
schweebit says specifically in the pkg description it can't resize ntfs12:09
matt_jonM: no problems.. I bet you'll be pleasantly surprised with ubuntu, I know I was.. and this is coming from gentoo linux12:10
subterrificyeah, you'd need to find a knoppix boot cd or something that has a more recent version of parted that can deal with ntfs12:10
JonMI'm really a bit overwhelmed with all the linuxes - there are too many.  Debian keeps cropping up, so does something called knoppix and then fedora....I dunno which one to take12:10
schweebthere's something called "sysresccd" that might have a util to resize12:11
=== eazel7 [~eazel7@host120.200-117-166.telecom.net.ar] has left #ubuntu ["Abandonando"]

subterrificJonM: stay away from fedora12:11
matt_well, ubuntu has an extremely straight-forward install12:11
matt_yes, stay away from fedora. So many problems there12:11
JonMand debian?12:11
matt_jonM: they're not different "linuxes".. just different distrobutions. Cause it's all linux..12:12
JonMyeah, and then there's this thing about latest kernel that does threads better for Java....12:12
SystemX_actually it's all GNU/Linux12:12
SystemX_linux is just the kernel :)12:12
matt_Well, ubuntu is very much like debian.. but I personally like it alot better.12:12
keiferhey SystemX_!12:13
ToothpickJonM if you are looking for a live cd...I'd recommend using Kanotix...if you want a hdinstall of a debian based distro then I'd use something like ubuntu or morphix12:13

Toothpickschweeb as is kanotix12:14
schweebnever heard of kanotix12:14
sladenToothpick: out of interest, what are the best features of Kanotix that are making you recommend it?  (I've not come across it yet)12:14
SystemX_i have used other debian unstable distro's and it doesn't seem that much different to me. Except for bug fixes and patches they have inserted12:14
matt_Hey, was I the only one that actually had to add some apt-get servers into my source.list and then install gdm and gnome before I could get x going?12:15
SystemX_none the less, it's a good distro...12:15
Toothpicksladen: hdinstall is really nice as kano fixed many of the hdinstall problems of knoppix.12:15
sladenmatt_: urm?12:15
matt_Like apparently the installer is supposed to do this but.. yeah I had to figure that out myself. i mean, luckily I understood enough to figure that out12:15
sladenmatt_: which distribution is this?12:15
matt_sladen: seriously.. actually, come to think of it I just uncommented 2 of the servers12:15
schweebbasically, it's a debian sid snapshot, stabilized, rebuilt, and some updated packages (gnome 2.8)12:16
matt_weird hey? Everything is perfect now but.. I installed it twice just to make sure12:16
JonMright, so things like ntfsresize are linux programs.  So I need a different linux distro that can reboot from CD before I can even use them.  Duh :-(12:16

schweebjdub: I have a question about that... I know you are providing bugfixes for main and such after release... but is there going to be a complete freeze on versions, even on major apps? i.e. if mozilla-firefox goes 1.0, is there a possibility of its inclusion into warty?01:11
jdubmaswan: :-)01:11
matt2ahhh.. awesome01:11
jdubschweeb: mozilla-firefox will only be included in warty before Final because we'd decided to ahead of time (it's part of our desktop goal)01:12

jdubmatt2: how did you install?01:22
LoweOne of the main reasons i wanted to try ubuntu was becauseof gnome 2.801:22
Adonijahmy favourite thing about Ubuntu so far is how little I had to customise my system to get it to work just like I wanted, only took me about 15 minutes to get everything just as I wanted01:22
jdubandred: mmm, think so01:22
schweebMitario: actually, hal might only update for removable devs01:22

jdubAdonijah: excellent, that's the best response we get :-) thanks01:22
matt2jdub: via cd.. but I DID have a problem since I had to manually install gdm and gnome. Turns out my image was bad.. but I didn't think there were any other problems01:22

schweebAdonijah: you're wrong on that point02:43
Deftmaybe if graphics cards companies would just reclassify their drivers as cpu level firmware, we could allow it02:44
jonoI am against closed source binaries, but the current driver situation seems quite restrictive - if your device is not supported in the kernel source and available as amodule for your distro, you are stuffed - if there is a third party driver, you need then compile it - I dont think any distro can keep on top of drivers that well02:44

Adonijahi wish I could believe that, i really do02:45
Adonijahbut as long as lawyers exist I wonder :P02:45
jonojdub, are you confident you can provide a module for every point release of the kernel inside ubuntu for every driver both in and out of the kernel?02:46
jdubAdonijah: when linux has 20% market share, do you think the dells, hps and ibms of this world are going to choose hardware/chipsets that require binary drivers? no. :-)02:46
jdubjono: every six months, there'll be a new release, with new drivers and (often) kernel.02:46
maswanjdub: this has already happened in the server space, IME02:47
schweebthere is a kernel config option where you don't have to recompile all of your modules for each and every kernel compile02:47
jdubmaswan: exactly :-)02:47
jdubmaswan: adaptec is the best example02:47
punkassif i set up a wifi connection with the gnome 'wizard' will it ask me for a WEP key if one is needed?02:47
jonojdub, but do you think you can cover all bases with the drivers - as much as I truly love ubuntu, I think its pretty impossible, even with six monthly release cycles02:47
schweebit scans the module and it disables the symbols it thinks are incompatible with it02:47
jonoand then what happens if the user wants to use a driver for a point kernel release where there is no module available in the distro02:48
punkassschweeb: so any other thoughts on what i can do?02:48
schweebpunkass: nope02:48
jdubjono: what do you define as 'all the bases'? we'll have new drivers in our kernel every six months. if a driver doesn't exist, we can't do it.02:48
punkassok thanks for your help02:48
jdubjono: they won't install point release kernels that aren't in ubuntu.02:48
jonojdub, I mean drivers outside the kernel too02:48
jdubjono: we're talking real users here, not us.02:48
jdubjono: we have a bunch of drivers from outside the kernel, that's the plan.02:49
schweebjono: that's what the kernel config option I'm talkin gabout is supposed to do02:49
schweebI dunno how well module versioning works02:49

schweebmust not be very reliable, since no one uses it02:49
jdubversioning doesn't matter - we're building kernels :-)02:49
jdubthey won't be out-of-step02:49
schweebjdub: right, but I'm talking about for say, vendors who want to have a downloadable driver from their site... a premade binary (not necessarily closed source)02:50
jonomy only concern is when a user needs to support a device in which the distro has not detected and installed the driver - that is when the user gets stuck in kernel compiling land - a place where no user should be :P02:50

jonojdub, agreed if you are 100% positive the distro will detect the hardware and asign the right driver02:52
jdubthe right solution is to have a sane release cycle, ship hardware support by default, and thumbscrew vendors in to supporting you as you pick up market share.02:52
jdubjono: if it doesn't, that's a bug.02:52
schweebjdub: well, it's a bit of a problem in the first place that modules are kernel dependent, IMO02:52
jonoI think the concern with linux is that you need to research your purchases02:52
jdubschweeb: it's not :-)02:52
jdubjono: sure, and that problem will end.02:53
jonobut this is largely the driver issue that commercially supported drivers are rare and hackers have to write them02:53
jonoanyhoo, I need to run, catch you later guys :)02:53
schweebjdub: howso?  I mean, if the driver hasn't changed, why should you have to recompile it every time you recompile the rest of the kernel?02:53
jdubschweeb: users don't. we do. :-)02:54
jonoschweeb, exactly02:54
jdubthe problem never sets foot in the users mind02:54
schweebevery distro could have a "driver-modules" package, and not have to upgrade your modules every time you download a new kernel02:54
jdubschweeb: we have that to some extent.02:54
schweebvia virtual packages02:55
jdub(at least for restricted)02:55
jdubschweeb: but dude, it's unlikely that you'd be upgrading a kernel between releases02:55
jonojdub, I know a lot of users who have a device that is supported by linux, their distro does not pick up on it and install a module and they ask a LUG or friend how to get their device working and they are told to compile a module - that is main problem - this is not a bug in a distro, its a limitation of the kernel02:55

schweebjdub: okay, how about the situation where a new piece of hardware comes out, and there is a OSS driver out immediately, but the distro doesn't have it included in their list... maybe it's some inane hardware the distro would never even realize is missing... why should the user have to file a bugreport to the distro to get it added?03:01

torybecause it shows the sun at night :(03:01
jdubschweeb: then it's not supported in the current release.03:01

maswanjdub: (just providing additional points :) )03:06
jdubmaswan: true, but let's assume that anyway (whether it's open source or not) ;)03:06
jonoI dont think the excuse for a lack of ABI compatibility in the kernel is good enough for the fact that it may be used for closed sourced drivers03:06
Adonijahjono, unfortunately, the kernel maintainers don't feel that way03:06
schweebjdub: are you talking about user space drivers?03:06
hornbeckis there going to be gtk-sharp packages?03:06
jdubAdonijah: that's a *good* thing :-)03:06
jdubschweeb: yes03:06
jonoAdonijah, and that is a problem IMHO03:06
jdubschweeb: most drivers will move to user space03:06
Adonijahjdub, not from a programming perspective03:07
schweebthat is acceptable, yes03:07
jdubdude, you're conflating problems here03:07
schweebthey're kernel space03:07
Adonijahjdub, if the Qt or Gtk apis changed as often as the kernel driver API there would be a mutiny :)03:07
Adonijahjdub, even for open source drivers it's very difficult to keep up with kernel changes sometimes03:07
jonoAdonijah, good point03:07
jdubAdonijah: sure, that's why they should be in the kernel03:07
jdubthis will be solved03:07
Adonijahjdub, that sounds great in theory, but what about when there's 20,000 drivers to be maintained03:07
jdubi believe it will be solved differently03:07

jonohow will it be solved jdub?03:08
jduband anyone chasing up the ABI/downloadable garden path is welcome to 03:08
maswanI mean, the first thing you check when you're thinking of buying new hardware is make menuconfig for a driver (if it is kernelspace).03:08
Adonijahjdub, pretend for a moment that binary drivers couldn't exist03:08
jdubjono: go to bed. :)03:08
jonojdub, huh?03:08
Adonijahjdub, would you then suddenly want  a stable API?03:09
jdublet's drop it03:09
jdubit's a pointless argument03:09
Adonijahi wouldn't say pointless03:09
Adonijahbut i would say impossible to agree most likely ;)03:09
jonoI think its very important, but I think we simply disagree :)03:09
jdubthus pointless03:09

jonook, I need to go learn about Blender - later chaps :)03:11
AdonijahGandalfar, hrm, i don't see anything wrong03:11
AdonijahGandalfar, did you use the partition to delete and move partitions around?03:11
GandalfarAdonijah: well, grub just hangs in there..03:11
AdonijahGandalfar, err..partitioner03:11
AdonijahGandalfar, you have XP SP2 or just plain ole' xp?03:12
GandalfarAdonijah: I had 8Gb unpartitioned disk space in hda2 which I used to add ext3 and install to it03:12
=== hermes88 [~hermes88@] has joined #ubuntu
GandalfarAdonijah: fresh xp installation with slipstreamed SP203:12
AdonijahGandalfar, ok, did you delete any partitions?03:12
GandalfarAdonijah: yes, the unpartitioned one03:12
bolivarbeen running the default install...want to do the mini install...will then do x-window-system-core, gdm, mozilla-firefox, xchat, evolution...but i dont see a 'gnome-base' type of package like debian...am i just overlooking it...hope that makes sence03:13
GandalfarAdonijah: because it seemed strange to me that winxp installer left 8Mb of free disk space03:13
hermes88hey, I'm getting an error message when trying to mount a windows partition...  "mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc2, or too many mounted file systems"03:13
AdonijahGandalfar, that may have been what done it, xp is picky about it's partition table03:13
AdonijahGandalfar, and the unpartitioned space is normal03:14
subterrificjdub: what project is aiming to move drivers into user space?03:14
AdonijahGandalfar, hrm...there is a non-destructive way to fix it03:14
AdonijahGandalfar, i think you should be able to boot the XP cd, go into recovery console mode and run the fdisk program03:14
GandalfarAdonijah: if I can save winxp, I can reinstall ubuntu much quicker03:14
AdonijahGandalfar, write out the partition table, and reboot03:14
AdonijahGandalfar, lemme check03:15
GandalfarAdonijah: so, should I delete ubuntu, create a big partition, leave 8Mb free in in and run fixmbr, boot in winxp, then reinstall ubuntu?03:15
subterrificAdonijah: if Gandalfar used the ubuntu installer i'm not sure that will work because it doesn't just change the partition table, it also formats the partitions03:16
Gandalfarsubterrific: I didn't format the ntfs one03:16
Adonijahsubterrific, it doesn't automatically format all the partitions03:16
AdonijahGandalfar, you shouldn't have to delete ubuntu03:16
Gandalfarsubterrific: I installed sarge a few times before :)03:16
AdonijahGandalfar, i think just booting to the XP recovery console using the CD, then running fdisk, having it write the partitions, and rebooting should work03:17
=== xTina_ [~xTina@p50833B44.dip.t-dialin.net] has joined #ubuntu
AdonijahGandalfar, you may end up having to run fixboot from the recovery console, and then reinstalling grub later03:17
jdubsubterrific: there are some gelato project related groups doing it atm.03:17
AdonijahGandalfar, if that fails, yes, you may have to delete the ubuntu partition using fdisk from the XP cd, using fixboot, and then reinstalling03:17
AdonijahGandalfar, but I don't think so03:17
jdubsubterrific: plus, you already have usb userspace drivers on your system now :)03:17
jdubbolivar: i wouldn't recommend that03:18

GandalfarAdonijah: hm, no fdisk in recovery console03:22
GandalfarAdonijah: fixmbr and fixboot will probably wipe-out grub?03:23
AdonijahGandalfar, yes, they will03:23
AdonijahGandalfar, but there should be an fdisk on the CD somewhere03:23
AdonijahGandalfar, i'd almost swear it03:23
AdonijahGandalfar, it may not be in the default path03:23
jdubsubterrific: there's also some stuff about it in the gelato@UNSW wiki03:23
bolivaris satellite as bad as people say for web?  ill be using that overseas...if its decent i could admin the box remotely03:24

AdonijahGandalfar, fixboot and fixmbr are pretty innocuous though, worth a try03:24
empopi think bolivar means when his mom is apt-get upgrading.  I know I have even been annoyed when debconf asks me something when upgrading a package that it didn't ask when i origionally installed it.03:24
AdonijahGandalfar, means you'd have to use the ubuntu cd to reinstall grub, but that's pretty minor03:25

jdubbolivar: it should be fine as-is03:26

Adonijahsubterrific, some things just don't work well in userspace though, like graphics drivers, and even then, userspace drivers are only good if the kernel abi for them is stable :p03:27

amitbut applications in suse seen out of date04:52
hornbeckgnome 2.8 is worth using ubuntu over suse04:52
micolousand suse has no gnome..04:52
amitok how is apt set up in ubuntu...04:52
hornbeckthats the reason I installed it 04:52
matthewjsya same, i only installed it for gnome 2.8 now i like it so im keeping it04:52
amiti mean does it have synaptic bundled04:52
hornbeckI was installing gnome 2.8 on progeny when I found this04:53

matt2I'm tired of compiling now..04:54
amitawesome....do the packages get updated right away04:54
matthewjsmatt2 thats the whole point of gentoo, so ya dont use it if you dont want to compile04:54

Adonijahamit, done that for a long time under linux w/ rr05:02

Adonijahhermes88, "configured mouse" should be there already05:47
Adonijahhermes88, and should be the "correct" entry for it to use05:47
Adonijahhermes88, you should be able to logout of X after making the change05:47
micolousand then gnome nicely reset itself, and worked05:48
Adonijahhermes88, and then do a ctrl-backspace to kill the server and restart it05:48

wm_eddieor perhaps a way to go up (back) one level with the mouse (for when I use the middle button)07:41
DimSumcrimsun: Windows 95 C07:41
subterrificbug submitted07:41
phlaegel(rox isn't really spatial, but whatever)07:41
DimSumWell, I used B for a while, but then moved to C when it came out07:41
djempakDimSum, win95 didn't add the information of the client statistics to a database07:42
crimsuni have to agree with whiprush; this is moot.07:42
punkasswhen i select reboot machine..it reboot fine, but when i shutdown its sits at acpi_power_down called..why is that?07:42
DimSumdjempak: Your point?07:42
wm_eddierox isn't spatial at all.. I think...07:42
DimSumThe overall experience is the same as Windows 95's Explorer07:42
djempakDimSum, making sure you weren't talking nonsense ;p07:42
wm_eddiebut I like it.07:42
DimSumSomething which was god-awful, and was disabled by default as soon as IE4 with Active Desktop was released07:43
djempaknot from what I have experienced07:43
whiprushI swear, I'm pretty sure this discussion has nothing to do with ubuntu07:43
tsengactive desktop was the worst07:43
tsengpoint to select07:43
DimSumOh god.07:43
phlaegelwm_eddie: no, but it's not that far off. all it really needs is for the remember settings feature to really work, and it would be, I think.07:43
djempakwho cares if it's like the behavior in Windows 95 anyway.07:43
DimSumtseng: That's wasn't the default behaviour07:43
djempakwhiprush, exactly07:43
crimsuni like the streamlined menus07:43
tsengnautilus > win9507:43
tsengim tired07:43
crimsundebian's menu system is a bit out of place.07:43
DimSumdjempak: My point is, it's an inefficient interface method, and one which Gnome shouldn't have forced on their users by default07:44
djempaklater tseng 07:44
whiprushhey wait tseng 07:44
DimSumBut, can we drop this?07:44
whiprushyou have a chance to try ifolder yet?07:44
phlaegelpointless AND offtopic... isn't that what irc is for? ;-)07:44
tsengsup whiprush 07:44
whiprushI want you to like it so you'll package it. :D07:44
djempakDimSum, then change it. it's simple. if you don't know howto change it, don't use it, don't complain07:44
DimSumdjempak: I have changed it.07:44
tsengwhiprush: like what07:44
djempakDimSum, then don't complain.07:44
DimSumThat's not the point; the point is that it should be off by default07:44
whiprushtseng: ifolder.07:44
DimSumLook, I don't care. Stfu now.07:44
wm_eddieahh I have a problem launching synaptic from the menu...07:44
djempakDimSum, yeah, you really should07:44
DimSumMy problem with Ubuntu is that it doesn't support monitor mode on Orinoco cards07:45
DimSumAnd patching the kernel with the Orinoco 0.15RC2 driver is proving to be impossible07:45
tsengwhiprush: oh, right..07:45
tsengim not even sure what it is07:45
matt2Wait for an update or find another distro, fuck off07:45
wm_eddie"Failed to run /usr/sbin/synaptic as user root: Child terminated with 1 status"07:45

jdubLinuxbcn: it's a Zulu word that means "humanity to others"12:59
mteiraLinuxbcn: It's explained on the ubuntulinux.org page.01:00
glyphjdub: I installed Ubuntu on Ying's machine, and it worked, but it had 2 problems that an install of Sarge using d-i did not01:00
jdubLinuxbcn: it is hard to describe all of what it means in english :)01:00
Kinnisonmteira: If you download http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/warty/Contents-<arch>.gz where <arch> is i386 amd64 or powerpc as appropriate; then you can zgrep that file and find things out :-)01:00
Linuxbcnjblack: great!! another "political" distro }:)01:00
jdubglyph: oh?01:00
glyphjdub: It decided that X was supposed to be at 640x48001:00
mteiraKinnison: Thanks for the tip01:00
glyphjdub: 60 HZ01:00
jdubglyph: was this straight off the preview cd?01:00
glyphjdub: yes01:00
michihi ! can anyone help me with my problem ? when i try to boot the iso it hangs when it says : booting /install/vmlinuz ... iso is ok, tried to download it 3 times ...01:00
Kinnisonmteira: another good tip there is to zgrep for bin/program if you want to find program01:00
jdubok, we *might* have fixed that, depending on what caused it01:00
Kinnisonmteira: that way you only get programs of that name :-)01:01
glyphjdub: it also recognized the network card during the install but promptly forgot about it in the actual dist01:01
jdubmichi: there are some solutions to that on the -users mailing list01:01
jdubglyph: d'oh 8)01:01
jdubglyph: chipset?01:01
glyphjdub: it's an sk98lin card, if that helps01:01
michijdub : under what topic ? didn find them ...01:02
jdubmichi: don't quite remember 8)01:02
michijdub : i cant see any posts ... do i have to register ?01:03
jdubmichi: you don't have to join the list to see the archives01:03
glyphjdub: I may be able to dedicate a machine to testing linux installations soon, but a prerequisite of that (ironically enough) would be a legitimate copy of Visual C++ 6.0 and Visual Studio .NET01:03
glyphjdub: I will let you know as soon as I have more information.01:03
jdubglyph: ok, thanks01:04
michijdub : i cant find any thread for this problem ...01:06

jdubyeah, n-c-b doesn't do the digital music to cd audio burning stuff though01:14
jdubrhythmbox (and muine) should soon01:14

jdubFrozen: apt-get install totem-xine (from universe)01:16
Lowek3b is pretty reliable. (haven't had a failed burn yet)01:16
aki_when i deinstall stuff how do i get rid of dependent libraries etc.?01:16
jdubFrozen: then check the videolan site for libdvdcss debs01:16
jdubaki_: aptitude/synaptic help you do that01:17

ichmy pppoe connection works, but i must set it up new all the time i restart (i know my english is horrible), it always tells me after reboot when i try to connect hat i maybe got a kernel 2.4, so i have to do a pppoeconf.04:18

mteiraJust cut /& paste04:20
cybrjackle|lappynow thats the long way04:20
Tomcat_+ Take out the timestamps and nickname :)04:20
ichhey, anyone here knows about pppoe?04:21
mteiracybrjackle|lappy: Sure there's a longer way.04:21
housetierich, when you use pppoeconf to setup the connection it asks you if you want the ppp connection up at boot time04:21
mteiraPerhaps using C++, and creating a class named Person04:21
psyklopsokay, there is no man for mtab like there is for fstab, where do I get info?04:21
mteirapsyklops: What are you trying to do?04:21
cybrjackle|lappylong way = Computer/System Configuration/User and Groups04:22
psyklopsinfo didn't work either, heh04:22
housetierich, however, ppp is looking for an executable /etc/ppp/ppp_on_boot which doesn't seem to be set/created by pppoeconf04:22
psyklopsehm... I want it to be simpler to mount from now on\04:22
psyklopsa simple mount /windows04:22
