Deftjvic, what else do you have that it should show as well as your hard disk?12:01
jvicNetwolf: marillat is a Debian repository for mplayer packages12:01
WsquaredThanks folks, switching to oss in mplayer worked. Next I'll try totem-xine.12:03
jvicDeft: i've got 4 primary partitions, and 2 extended partitions... shouldn't it list them? Also, i've got a free space on my disk that i've setup for Ubuntu to use (allocate a new partition there). But it didn't list the free space too... in other words, i don't know how to install Ubuntu without having to erase my entire disk.12:03
bolivarjvic: durring the install when it searches your drive and it asks if you want to write the partitions say no....youll 'should' then have the option to see everything12:05
bolivarduring that is12:05
theantixjvic, I had the exact same problem (https://bugzilla.ubuntu.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1253) -- are you sure your partitions are okay?  Can you check in parted to see if parted can see them?12:06
WsquaredFor the totem-xine fans: Synaptic wants to delete totem-gstreamer in order to install totem-xine.  What's up with that? 12:06
tsengWsquared: they block each other for obvious reasons12:06
phlaegelWsquared: you can only use one of the totem backends12:06
jvictheantix: coincidentally, before trying to install Ubuntu, i tried to use Qtparted, but i can't.. when i select my HD, it just exists.12:07
phlaegelthey do the same thing12:07

jmhodgesok..12:07
jmhodgesi've now tried 3 iso d/ls12:07
jmhodgesand md5 checked the last one12:07
jmhodgesit matched12:07
jmhodgesbut bsdutils is still corrupted on the iso12:07
jmhodgesargh.12:08
WsquaredOK--I didn't know what totem-gstreamer was!12:08
=== mandingo is now known as xcasex
Deftjmhodges, if you are sure that's where the problem is, you could mount the iso and change it, but if the md5s match, that would be very wierd12:08
=== Cardador [~jose@81.84.201.33] has joined #ubuntu
bolivarjmhodges: you could try a daily release instead12:09
jvictheantix: so, how did you discovered/solutioned the problem? Because it seems it's the same problem12:09
bolivarwhen i installed i used the daily from the 16th12:10
bolivarhttp://archive.ubuntu.com/cdimage/daily/current/12:10
theantixjvic, I got my data off and started again from scratch -- ugly solution, but that's what I had to do12:10
jvictheantix: oh well... guess i won't be installing Ubuntu soon :(12:12
jvictheantix: damn it... do you have any idea what might have caused the problem?12:13
theantixif your partition table is invalid, you'll need to fix it eventually before you suffer data loss12:13
jvictheantix: how did you find out your partition table is invalid?12:14
WsquaredWhen I installed totem-xine, the install got to the text window, and printed the usual messages about setting up...12:14
theantixjvic, not entirely sure but I think it was something to do with resizing ntfs with the mandrake installer (should have used qtparted instead I know now)12:14

Deftbad_ronald, not sure exactly what you mean, but the line in hosts should be "127.0.0.1 <hostname> localhost locahost.localdomain" or equivalent01:37
bad_ronaldyes, that line is there, but there were two instances where a hostname had to be supplied during the installation, once during the cd install, then later after the web update, the first was called "ubuntu" and the second was called "debian", "ubuntu" is there but "debian" is not.01:39
bad_ronaldit does read 127.0.0.1 at the top, though01:40
Kamiondo you remember the context of the second question?01:40
Kamionthat shouldn't have been asked01:40

tsengim starting to get a hang of what is going on01:41
bad_ronaldIt was identical to the first question, only it happened after the web-based package installation, the only difference was the default name given #1: ubuntu, #2 debian, I changed #1 to localhost, and #2 to myhost, I wasn't really sure whether they were different or the same01:41

DimSumBut I hadn't been messing around with settings or anything02:07
Kamionwell, the fact that it wasn't in /etc/network/interfaces is at best interesting02:07

MrPiddlzThat's the problem I have I got not DRI suppose so no direct rendering. I have an ATi though.03:22

MrPiddlzI dunno how nvidia works but from everything I read there drivers are easy to install.03:23

WsquaredMrPiddlz, goatboy_ (and anyone else):  It still doesn't work.  You were correct about GLCore and glx.  These enable software OpenGL rendering.  (It says so right in the configure program.)  So I disabled GLCore and glx, and re-enable dri, but glxgears is still running at about 380 FPS, and tuxracer is seems jumpy and coarse compared to how I've seen it before on this computer.03:43

Wsquared... The X server configuration program said that dri must be support in the kernel, the videocard, and in the installed versions of the Mesa libs.03:46
Se7hah, one thing03:47
WsquaredHow can I check if dri is supported in the installed version of the Mesa libs?03:47
goatboy_Wsquared: you have to enable glx and disable GLcore and dri.03:47
Se7hdoes anyone have unreal tournament installed?03:47
goatboy_Wsquared: nvidia's binary is special, it doesn't use dri.03:48
KamionJanneM: so if you say yes to that dialog, does it then offer you the size?03:48
psyklopsSe7h: I used to have UT200303:49
Kamioncalc: is that just a keymap thing?03:49

JanneMKamion: yes03:49
psyklopsSe7h: if I remember right, the order of the CDs was ALL out of whack in linux03:49
JanneMKamion: it feels it really should be asking me for a size first, though03:49
psyklopsSe7h: and there was something you had to do special to stop if from trying to remount on every file03:49
Kamion_Description: Write the changes to disk and resize the partition?03:50
JanneMfirst the size, then ask to do other changes before we do the resize, then do the resize03:50
Kamion Before the resize operation takes place, the changes have to be written03:50
Kamion to disk.03:50
Kamion .03:50
Kamion You cannot undo this operation.03:50
JanneMmm03:50
Kamionhm, I can see your point03:50
JanneMbut since I have not specified a change yet, this sounds very strange03:50
Wsquaredgoatboy_: But the X server configuration program specifically said that GLCore and glx enable software rendering.  Isn't the point of the card to do the rendering in hardware--so these modules are not necessary?03:50
psyklopsSe7h: if you weren't referring to UT2003, I'm sorry, but I have no experience with any other UT.03:50
Se7hpsyklops i installed UT (the first one) and i got the windrv error03:50
JanneMit looks a lot like a screen was skipped03:50
KamionJanneM: I think it might be because it doesn't know how to calculate the maximum size before you've written the changes to disk03:50
JanneMand since it's about repartitioning I tend to become very paranoid about it03:51
KamionJanneM: how about if the screen were just clarified a bit?03:51

chutwigOS X comes with the root account disabled, so i got used to sudo'ing for everything05:41
jokernice05:41
jokeri see05:42
subterrificclaviola: sudo su - is better than sudo -s because you get the root's environment05:42
claviolasubterrific: it does the same, actually.05:42
subterrificnormal user might not have certain things in their PATH like /sbin05:42
mdzthe only bit of root's environment that I generally want is HOME05:42
mdzi.e., sudo -s -H05:42
mdzsubterrific: in Ubuntu, sbin is always in the PATH :-)05:42
chutwighow about /usr/local/bin05:42
mdzlikewise05:43
chutwigthank god05:43
claviolaoh, nm.05:43
Kamion/usr/local/bin should be in $PATH in any sane distribution05:43
chutwigdebian laughed at my futile efforts to convince bash to add it to my path05:43
Kamionchutwig: uh, it's in the default $PATH in Debian too05:44
Kamion$ grep local /etc/profile05:44
KamionPATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/games"05:44
punkasswell if these lcd shut off works then i think all is well05:44
chutwigKamion: er, i'm thinking of the sbin directories05:44
Kamionah yes05:44
punkasshad to use the radeontool for the lid operation tho..05:44
punkasswhich actually works pretty good05:44
Kamionwell, it shouldn't be necessary to have sbin in a mortal user's $PATH; we did it at least partially as a stopgap measure, I think05:45
punkassbut isnt things like   ifconfig  in /sbin05:45
KamionI don't think we should cease efforts to make /bin+/usr/bin be sensible05:45
claviolaI don't know why not have /sbin and /usr/sbin in the path.05:45
mdzwe did it because the distinction is not sanely implemented in modern unices05:45
chutwigyeah, i mostly got annoyed having to type /sbin/ifconfig over and over again05:45
mdzmaybe that will change and we won't need it anymore05:46
punkasschutwig: i hear that05:46
claviolaI remember flamewars about moving traceroute out of /usr/sbin, so it's unlikely.05:46
claviolamaybe in ubuntu, though.05:46
chutwigi'm so used to BSD device names now05:46
Kamionclaviola: that was a single maintainer ...05:46
chutwigi forgot eth0 wasn't named en005:46
pondschutwig05:46
Kamionthe FHS is very clear about how the world should be; it's just that the world isn't that way yet05:46
chutwigsup ponds05:46
Kamion       Deciding what things go into "sbin" directories is simple: If a normal05:46
Kamion       (not a system administrator) user will ever run it directly, then it05:46
Kamion       should be placed in one of the "bin" directories.  Ordinary users should05:46
Kamion       not have to place any of the sbin directories in their path.05:46
pondshows it going05:46
KamionI note that ip(8) is in /bin05:46
chutwigoh fine, ubuntu is slowly installing on my crapbox05:47
mdzyes, and getting into the habit of using ip(8) is a good idea anyway05:47

punkassby the end i was falling asleep05:58
chutwigmy longest class is the 4:30-7:10 grad class i have once a week on thursday05:58
calcnight classes are sometimes better since some instructors seem to go easier on working adults05:59
chutwigi hated the subject material as well, so that didn't help05:59
chutwigbut this grad class i have this semester is an interesting class, plus it's on the history of the german language and i'm the only linguist in there, so i have an advantage over everyone else05:59

punkassif you put in a blank cd i believe it will open up a window where u can drag files to06:40
punkasshaha06:40
punkass ok cool..just a buddy of mine wants to installed ubuntu on his amd64 and wants his nvidia card goin06:40
chutwiglooks like i'll have to reinstall tomorrow06:40
chutwigdpkg seems entirely unable to resolve this problem06:40
fabbionechutwig: which problem?06:41
fabbionedpkg is not meant to solve problems..06:41
fabbioneapt-get is06:41
punkassapt-get -f install06:41
chutwigfabbione: the one where the hard drive controller blew up halfway through the install and a lot of packages got corrupted in the middle of installing06:41
chutwigapt-get just farted around and didn't fix anything06:41
fabbionechutwig: oh.. hmmmmm06:42
chutwigso i have about 20 bum packages that are stuck and can't be purged06:42
fabbionechutwig: the easiest is to reinstall06:42
fabbionethe funny part would eb to solve the problem06:42
chutwigthat's the plan06:42
punkassfabbione: would he run into troubles if he wants to install the driver from nvidia site?06:42
chutwigyou'd think purging would overrule everything, but apparently not06:43
fabbionepunkass: no, i use the same package to build our nvidia driver, but there is no point in it...06:43
punkassjust needs kernel source/headers?06:43
fabbioneoh well yeah there might be problems06:43
fabbionepunkass: i used to build the driver myself06:43
fabbionebut than i noticed a bunch of problems related to libraries06:44
fabbionethat a normal user will never see06:44
punkassoh..so u r going to have them up pretty quick then (day or so)?06:44
fabbionelike some packages that will start to fail to build from sources06:44
punkassah06:44
fabbionepunkass: ???06:44
fabbionepretty quickly what?06:44
punkassthe glx package06:44
fabbionethere are glx packages for i38606:44
punkassfor amd6406:44
fabbioneif you are talking about amd64, no.. they won't be quick06:44
punkassthats why i was wondering about him building it himself from the nvidia site drivers06:45
fabbionethey can install from the nvidia site06:45
burnboyhrm..so is there any special way to upgrade the kernel for ubuntu?06:45
fabbioneand remove them later06:45
punkassok cool06:45
fabbionepunkass: what i don't understand is this fever about the nvidia binary drivers06:45
fabbionethey only have 3D06:45
punkassgames..06:46
punkassunreal etc06:46
fabbioneyeah well.. in that case most of these guys won't need to build Xfree86 or pyopengl from sources06:46
fabbioneso there is no real harm in them to install from the nvidia site and upgrade later06:46
punkassok06:46
punkassi know the nvidia installer is pretty staight forward06:47
fabbioneyeah but it messes a lot with the system if you don't know how to use it in advanced option06:47
fabbionespecially the TLS library part06:47
punkassah06:47
fabbiones/option/mode06:48
punkasshe said he had a max res at 1024 too and a big black border around the screen..so i thought the official drivers would help06:48
diemanok, so that nvidia-glx-config script isn't in the archive yet?06:49
diemanwhat does it do?06:49
fabbionedieman: no, not yet..06:49
diemanor i guess my mirror might not have it yet06:49
diemanok06:49
diemancould you summarize what it does?06:49
fabbionedieman: it reconfigure X and load teh nvidia module properly06:49
fabbionenothing impressing really :-906:50
fabbioneok i am back to fix some stuff06:50
diemandoes it end up modifying the links for gl libs and glx modules?06:50
diemanor is that doen by the package06:50
dieman?06:50
fabbionepunkass: point him to http://people.no-name-yet.com/~fabbione/nv/amd6406:50
diemanor does it merely just change nv to nvidia in the config?06:50
fabbionepunkass: and tell him to stick these 2 files in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/06:50
fabbionedieman: they are like the nvidia packages in debian. + they have the simple config script to enable/disable the nvidia binary driver06:51
fabbioneboth for X and the kernel06:51
diemanif its just changing the debconf answers, good -- doesn't break my method of just changing the discover1-data for nvidia cards to be able to use the binary drivers.06:51
punkassok will do..hes not around right now but ill tell him when he is06:51
fabbionedieman: yes it preseed debconf and rebuild the config06:52
diemanok06:52
diemancool06:52
diemanthanks06:52
fabbionedieman: no s/nv/nvidia/ or strange stuff06:52
diemanstill need to worry about not installing nvidia-glx on non-nvidia boxes, but thats no huge deal06:52
diemani just handle that with cfengine at the moment.06:52

subterrificyeah, and gnome is really starting to show some polish07:20
jmhodgesheh, right refresh07:20
jmhodgessubterrific: very much so 07:20
jmhodgessubterrific: i've been playing with gnome 2.7  for a few months, and it just kept getting faster and more complete07:21
subterrificwhen i switched from mac os x to gentoo i went with kde, but about 6 months into using kde, i got tired of plastik and started looking for nicer themes, but everything was for gtk, so i tried gnome one day and never went back to kde07:24
jmhodgeshehe07:24
subterrificoh, and i was doing some python development at the time, and i wanted to make a simple cross-platform gui and Qt/Win isn't free07:25
jmhodgeswow, i'm not used to having a system without gcc in the base install heh07:25
subterrificso i went with PyGTK for that too07:25
jmhodgessubterrific: nice07:25
subterrificactually, i used wxPython, which uses GTK07:25
subterrificjmhodges: yeah, i think its for security and because ubuntu is more of a desktop OS07:26
jmhodgesyeah, and thats what i figured07:26
jmhodgesi've been using src based distros for something like 3-4 years07:26
jmhodgesheh07:26
subterrificyeah i really like gentoo, you need a fast machine for it though07:27
subterrificor a bunch of machines running distcc07:27
jmhodgeshehe, i never did get around to playing with gentoo but the experiences i've had with src based taught me a ton..07:28
jmhodgessubterrific: definitely a lot of waiting for things to be installed07:28
calcLFS is probably better to learn from07:28
jmhodgesevolution and mozilla compiles are not things you want to see :)07:29

plovs_how can I debug hal? my key does not get automounted, but works ok09:36
plovs_is there some sort of a hardware database?09:37
bur[n] erwtf is pmount?09:37
pittiplovs_: as long it's a normal USB stick with a common file system, it should work09:37
plovs_bur[n] er, pmount is like mount but you don't have to be root and is nicer to use09:37
pittiplovs_: did you install the preview from scratch or did you upgrade?09:37
bur[n] erhuh, i'm intrigued09:38
plovs_ preview from scratch, and updated 5 minutes ago09:38
subterrificbur[n] er: pmount is for mounting removable media with hal09:38
bur[n] ernext questino... why didnt ubuntu see my fat32 partition and put it in my 'computer' area?09:38
pittibur[n] er: yep, this pmount is better than letting hal run as root and have it mess up fstab09:38
pittibur[n] er: we currently don't automatically mount partitions from fixed discs09:38
pittibur[n] er: we should certainly do that at least for VFAT/NTFS partitions09:39
bur[n] erit doesnt' ven show up that i can mount it though09:39
pittibur[n] er: I already submitted a bug about this09:39
bur[n] erwell good :)09:39
pittiplovs_: are you in group plugdev?09:39
pittiplovs_: what do you mean with "works ok"? Can you pmount it?09:40
plovs_pitti, yes, plovs and hal are09:40
pittiplovs_: if you do pmount /dev/sda1 (or so), does it work?09:40
plovs_pitti, pmount /dev/sda usb-key works, yes09:40
pittiplovs_: ah, you don't have partitions on that thing?09:41
plovs_pitti, whith another key  pmount /dev/sda1 usb-key, works09:41

=== Greensky [~nin@216-161-80-213.ptld.qwest.net] has joined #ubuntu
Greenskyis there a ubuntu forum?09:43
victorhooiSorry, just a quick question: how do I get ubuntu to boot to command line rather than x (without removing xdm, which all the posts on the net seem to say to do) - need to do this to install vmware-tools.09:43
plovs_sda or sda109:43
victorhooiThanks in advance =).09:43
pittiplovs_: just try both.09:43
pittiplovs_: with sda1, there  should appear a new "Volume" node in DevManager09:44
Greenskyvictorhooi, look in /etc/inittab09:44
Greenskyvictorhooi, (this is how you do it in most linux distros)09:44
victorhooiyeah, i know that for redhat based distros (rh, fedora, mandrake) etc.09:44
victorhooirunlevel 5 is x09:44
Greenskyvictorhooi, look for a line like:   "id:5:initdefault:"09:44
victorhooibut debian is different09:44
victorhooi(not even like Slackware, which is BSD-based)09:44
Greenskyoh... sorry09:44
fabbionevictorhooi: you can either edit /etc/init.d/xdm09:44
fabbioneand put a exit 0 at the second line09:44
plovs_pitti, pull sda out, dissapears, put back in, light blinks, appears (like magic!) in the device-manager09:44
fabbionevictorhooi: or check upgrade-rc.d man page to remove xdm from starting09:45
victorhooiyeah, I know I tried that (read it on mailing list archive =) ),09:45
Greenskyis there an ubuntu forum yet or just a wiki?09:45
pittiplovs_: the device itself should appear, but as long as it does not have a "Volume" node, gnome does not see it09:45
victorhooifabbione: unfortunately, it flashes, and starts up gdm (arrgh, refuses to die *grin*)09:45
pittiplovs_: if you plug in the other USB stick (with partition), does it have a "Volume" node?09:45
fabbionevictorhooi: disable both :-)09:45
subterrificwhat is the proper way to unmount a volume that has been mounted by hal? just umount?09:46
plovs_pitti, it does have a volume node called TS256MJF2L09:46
Greenskyvictorhooi, I'de look for whatever tells gdm to start at boot (unfortunately I use fedora/gentoo so I dono bout debian)09:46
pittiplovs_: this is the label?09:46
mdzvictorhooi: in Debian-based systems, runlevel 1 is single-user and 2-5 are multi-user.  2-5 are identical by default, and can be customised by the admin09:46
pittiplovs_: the node in the left tree should be called "Volume"09:46
victorhooifabbione: cheers, I'll try reading the upgrade-rc.d man page - just sub in gdm for gdm09:46
pillswhen i try and do a make install for ndiswrapper i get /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-2-386/build not found...do i need to have the source installed?09:46
pittiplovs_: if you click on it and select the advanced tab, can you please look for block.is_volume?09:47
victorhooimdz: thanks, good to see diff. ways of doing things (IMHO prefer Slackware's BSD style)09:47
pittiplovs_: and block.device?09:47
subterrifictoo many people with names starting with p[il] 09:47
subterrificgetting confusing09:47
mdzvictorhooi: if you like that style, look at the file-rc package in universe09:47
plovs_pitti,  block.is_volum  int 0,  block.device /dev/sda09:48
pittiplovs_: that's the problem. is_volume must be 1 to recognize it as a mountable thingy09:48
pittiplovs_: same thing for sda1?09:48
plovs_pitti, let me try09:48
plovs_pitti, IT OPENED A WINDOW! what did you do to my computer! 09:50
pittiplovs_: black magic...09:50
pittiplovs_: close it again immediately, before it gets cold :-)09:50
plovs_pitti, very weird ...09:50
pittiplovs_: so only the partitionless stick is not recognized?09:50
plovs_pitti, I unmounted it, pulled it out, put it back in and after a minute it appears, where does the time-out come from?09:51
pittiplovs_: a _minute_?09:52
plovs_pitti, the partition-less one does not work09:52
pittiplovs_: that should be some seconds09:52
pittiplovs_: partitionless is a known bug09:52
bur[n] erany plans for a fancy grub menu and a bootsplash in next release??09:52
plovs_pitti, well, It might be 10 seconds or so ... it feels like a minute though :)09:52
plovs_pitti, maybe 5 seconds09:52
pittiplovs_: 5 seconds is reasonable09:53
pittiplovs_: this USB magic cannot be made much faster09:53
plovs_pitti, so I just make a partition whith fdisk or so?09:53
pittiplovs_: if you want to have it mounted automatically, this is a good idea09:53
pittiplovs_: also, older windows version do not get along without partitions, so it is really a good idea09:54
plovs_pitti, why not on XP it is pretty fast (not that I like XP, but it shows it is technically possible) The second one is usb1, though09:54
pittiplovs_: yes, it works on XP09:54
pittiplovs_: but not on 98, don't know about 200009:54
plovs_pitti, you're the MAN (I suppose)!09:54
plovs_pitti, I'll make partitions and report back09:55
pittiplovs_: well, one partition should usually be enough :-)09:56
victorhooifabbione: errr, slight prob.09:56
victorhooifabbione: man upgrade-rc.d returns null09:56
plovs_pitti, should I make partitions with XP or linux?09:56
pittiplovs_: that really does not make any difference09:56
victorhooifabbione: locate doesn't seem to find any upgrade-rc.d script09:56
pittiplovs_: cfdisk /dev/sda is certainly fine09:57
fabbioneman update-rc.d 09:57
pittiplovs_: although all partitioning programs may get confused by the data that is already on the stick, when they try to interpret it as a partition table09:57
fabbionethe script has to be execute with sudo09:57
pittiplovs_: just tell me if it does not work09:57
fabbionesorry.. upgrade <- update09:57

plovs_pitti, it is finally done, first I erased the partition-table by creating a file-system: mkfs.fat32 -I /dev/sda, then I created /dev/sda1, then I created a filesystem on sda1, now it works. It even automounts, in about ten seconds10:31
pittiplovs_: great10:32
pittiplovs_: ten seconds is still very long, on my box it usually lasts 510:33
pittiplovs_: btw, creating a fs on /dev/sda is not exactly necessary10:33
plovs_pitti, I used that to erase the existing table, fdisk complained about having to reboot, and then after rebooting I could not make a filesystem. Anyway, now it works.10:36
pittiplovs_: ah. I usually clean a device by dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda1 :-)10:36
pittiplovs_: but if it works, its fine10:37
=== MrPiddles [~tonito@adsl-065-006-207-248.sip.mia.bellsouth.net] has joined #ubuntu
plovs_pitti, I have a superstitious fear of dd after I made a typo with it once ...10:37
plovs_pitti, will you put an icon on the desktop or something somewhere for automounted devices? 10:38
plovs_pitti, it kind of a pain to umount10:38
MrPiddlesWell I tried all methods of instlaling the ati drivers even in source with the kernel source or the headers or deb packages. Same result everytime. Can't load fglrx module and DRI keeps wondering off about /dev/card0/dri. Anyone has this problem?10:38
pittiplovs_: https://bugzilla.ubuntulinux.org/show_bug.cgi?id=98010:38
pittiplovs_: but just ripping the stick out usually works10:39
pittiplovs_: usually = if no application accesses it any more10:39
MrPiddlesAs of now I have no direct rendering but I do have acceleration with the ati drivers. Radeon 9600 pro. Any luck anyone to get them to direct render?10:39
plovs_pitti, oooh, that is higher voodoo! must try10:39

jdubthey're part of base10:40

jdubso you can rely on stuff being there10:41
jdubi'm still leaning towards that10:41
rburtonhm, fair enough10:41
rburtondetected and not running would be good10:42
jdubso some of these things could (quickly!) detect whether they need to even exectue10:42
jdubsuch as mdstat10:42
plovs_pitti, unbelievable, it actually works, good that you added sync as a mount option, now how about the name sda1, how to call it MYCOOLUSBKEYTHATAUTOMOUNTSINLINUX10:42
rburtonbtw, i can't shutdown my ubuntu box -- it hangs on Deconfiguring network interfaces10:42
jdub"grep -q ^md /proc/mdstat" might even be the right answer to that10:42
pittiplovs_: this is a hoary issue10:42
jdubbut i'm not sure if you can give idiotic names to md devices yet :)10:42
pittiplovs_: pmount already supports it: pmount /dev/sda1 MYFUCKINGUSBSTICK10:43
pittiplovs_: but actually managing these labels in a database/on the device really is a hoary thing10:43
pittiplovs_: but we know about this10:43
MacPlusG3you can actually start up all your services in the background (instead of serially)10:43

DeftLowe, well, marillat's mplayer says it depends on libvorbis0a, and that should be the latest version, you could try enforcing a particular distro with apt-get (-t ...)02:23

pittithom: no, I suppose not. No need to excuse, just funny02:24

nodaWow, lots of people here :)02:25
cgdefthe thing is that the mkfs.reiser4 binary is installed so I assumed that the support to mount the file system would also be there02:25
Muttleyseb128: yeah, not the point though02:26
moyogohmmm, i find mplayer useful for a few things, sometimes xine is better02:26
moyogototem is just eye candy02:26
nodaMy laptop seems to freeze when I press the "lid" button... any ideas? I mean, even *suspend* works (and I've never had it working before)02:26
Muttleyseb128: it still works like xine. they should make it automatic and it blows most my reasons for using mplayer out the water02:26
cgdefhowever I get an error message that the file system is unsupported when I try to mount the drive02:26
SurcouFLowe, why don't you like totem or xine ?02:26
cgdefthe name of the FS in fstab is reiser4 right?02:26

rburtondaniels: not bad. finally saw Shaun Of The Dead so things are looking up. you?02:28

danielsrburton: neat. not too badly myself.02:28
SurcouFLowe, so, do it yourself02:29
rburtonLowe: fine, but its not in ubuntu, its not in debian, so you have to install it yourself. live with it.02:29
nodaI can chmod -x /etc/acpi/lid.sh but it still crashes when I press the lid button02:29

SurcouFMuttley, do you have a girlfriend ? ;-)02:30
MuttleyI'm sure gstreamer is going to whip the crap out of mplayer and xine one day02:30
nodaUse marillat's repository (I think)02:30

SurcouFMuttley, with totem too02:32
ldextersteve2: thank you :-)02:32
Muttleyhow, please tell me how. because I don't dislike totem, I just couldn't get it to do what I needed02:32
cgdeftotem should automatically play the sub file if it has the same name as your avi and is in the same folder02:33
TreenaksI think it should show the sub file in the menu, but not play it by default, unless you clicked the sub file instead of the avi02:33
Mithrandirlifeless: mail sent, sorry for the delay.02:34
cgdefalso it is possible that totem does not support the type of sub file that you are using but I hightly doubt that mplayer will if totem doesn't02:34

sabdflDeft: yes, we'll have this for Hoary, it will list only applications in main (supported, with security fixes)04:05
rcaskeybut a security update applet needs to get done04:05
jdubthat's also coming in hoary04:05
Deftsabdfl, great, but could third party's apps from other archives get added?04:06
rcaskeyhopefully 2.10 will get the noticiation spec banged out04:06
jdubDeft: it'll only list stuff from supported04:06
rcaskeyI guess there is really no reason for it to be an applet though04:06
sabdflDeft: hmm... so you'd like it to be possible for stuff from other archives to show up there?04:07
Kamionsabdfl: you mean something like when you'll consider employing new staff, or the relative status of core team vs. non-Canonical maintainers (hopefully as equal as possible), or ...?04:07
jdubDeft: if users know enough to want to go down the universe path, they can do so with synaptic or so on. :-)04:07

=== fps [~fps@193.195.77.179] has joined #ubuntu
Deftsabdfl, best would be if you could certify apps in some way, so synaptic would check for applications in all repositories loaded, to find ones that match a list set by ubuntu04:07
rcaskeya single click to add the repo, apt-get install the software, etc04:08
sabdflDeft: any reason why we would not simply move those apps to main if we were satisfied that they met the required standard?04:08
Kamionha, sabdfl beat me to it04:08

=== Mirno is away: je re
Deftrcaskey, that would be very useful too, would allow software on cds more easily too, if a whole apt archive could be put on a cd and installed from easily04:08
Deftsabdfl, I'm trying to think of commercial apps too04:09
rcaskeyAlso, it would help if it was possible to install a .deb with simple click click clicking04:09
PhatedIt is possible. *click click click* dpkg -i.04:09
rcaskeyThat way every app author wouldn't need to put up a respotiroy04:09
KamionDeft: apt archives on CDs are pretty easy to do04:09
rcaskeyPhated: I know that, but the average ubuntu user doesn't04:10
jdubrcaskey: that's doable (there's a nautilus extension for dpkg information too), but ideally, users would not ever need to deal with .deb files04:10
jdubrcaskey: repositories are the way to provide packages in an easy to use fashion04:10
Phatedrcaskey: It should be basic based-on-Debian info, IMO.04:10
DeftKamion, but they are not that easy to install from, because the user has to use apt-cdrom or whatever04:10
Kamionyeah, if people have to deal with .deb files then they have to deal with dependencies04:10
fabbionemore than dpkg -i <package>, i would opt for apt-get install <package>04:10
fabbioneKamion: exactly my point :-)04:10

=== scarynetworkguy [~rpercival@c-67-171-194-92.client.comcast.net] has joined #ubuntu
DeftKamion, if they could just put in the cd, and tell synaptic "This cd is an apt source", they could install from it instantly; if the apps on the cd could also show up in a new application-level package manager, a user could just click on the app icon in that list, and go04:11
pittithom: didn't you upload hal 1ubuntu11 recently?04:11
pittithom: it's still not in the archive and I need to fix two bugs in hal04:12
Kamionrcaskey: you'd have to fake up a repository on the fly or something ...04:12
jdubKamion: is there some kind of downloadable metadata file that could be interpreted into a source line?04:12
Kamion(otherwise apt can't do all the actions simultaneously)04:12
Kamionjdub: not to my knowledge04:12
thom hal | 0.2.92-1ubuntu11 |         warty | source, amd64, i386, powerpc04:13
rcaskeyKamion: well you could just query the reqs on the package(s), apt-get install those, then dpkg -i the debs04:13
jdubKamion: you could just provide a ".debsrc" file or something, which would be consumed by easyinstaller/synaptic04:13
Kamionjdub: if you have the URL to the repository, you can parse it into the repository04:13
Kamionrcaskey: you really want to take the repository approach04:13
jdubalthough04:13
thompitti: ^04:13
rcaskeyKamion: I think both should be done04:13
Kamionrcaskey: there are too many corner cases otherwise04:13
jdubwe have to really seriously consider why we're trying to optimise for numerous repositories04:13
Kamionrcaskey: and you end up duplicating too much code04:13
Kamioner, "parse it into the sources.list line" above04:14
pittithom: I use the German mirror. Obviously it did not propagate there yet04:14
pittithom: thanks04:14
jdubsabdfl: mail for you on sounder04:14
PhatedWhy not something that told dpkg to ask apt to download needed deps when dpkgg -i was invoked and unmet dependencies were found? It must be possible -somehow-.04:14
jdubPhated: better to have apt support file installation04:14
az[a] zel_ubuntuhmmm.. 83.6MB of upgrades already04:14
jdubPhated: so it can do it, and invoke dpkg, etc.04:14
KamionPhated: layering violation; that's apt's job04:15
Phatedjdub: True.04:15
rcaskeyjdub: making an easy way to click and add subscriptions would probably make software makers rather happy04:15
DeftI reckon I'll try and write out a few scenarios for software installation, see if I can draw it together somehow (yes, I'm bored)04:15
Kamionrcaskey: there's a limit to how much we want to make proprietary software authors happy, though04:15
rcaskeyadd a handler for an xml doc to add it to the sources.list and an easy add/remove software util04:15
rcaskeyKamion: I think this benefits everyone04:15
Kamionit would be much better for the software in question to be free, and then we could have it in Ubuntu04:15

marquivonwill it be possible to install ubuntu through the network. if yes, can someone guide me to any documentation or give any hints? thanks06:45
hypatiaThere's a netboot installer, but the documentation explicitly defines it as out of scope:06:46
Kamionmarquivon: yes, the files in /install/netboot/ can be used; you're probably best looking at the debian-installer documentation for now06:46

pondsis the ubuntu kernel a stock 2.6.8.1 or is it patched with anything? if its patched, where do i get the sources?  I cant find it in apt.07:00
pittiplovs: after warty's release in October, you will only get security updates anyway07:00
marquivoni believe if i copy /install/netboot/* files in /ubuntu directory on a redhat linux 9 system, modify its grub.conf and add its entries, then it should work, right?07:00
Kamionponds: somewhat patched, get the source package and look in debian/patches/ to see07:00
pondsok, im having trouble locating the source package07:01
Kamionaitrus: completely automatic upgrades are not recommended; occasionally upgrades have to ask a question07:01
Kamionaitrus: you might like to use 'apt-get -dy dist-upgrade' to just download everything, then you can do the actual upgrade later07:01
Kamionponds: make sure the deb-src line for warty main is uncommented in /etc/apt/sources.list; 'apt-get source linux-source-2.6.8.1'07:02

DimSumHmm07:07
DimSumAre you guys looking into using something like Anaconda as the installer for Ubuntu?07:07
pittiplovs: I would write a small script which changes apt sources temporarily, does the upgrade and changes back the sources07:07
DimSumBecause, although the Ubuntu installation was simple as hell, it wasn't exactly "inviting"07:07
KamionDimSum: it may be an option in the future, but debian-installer seems to be doing sufficiently well that I imagine it will remain the default07:07
plovspitti, I wrote this small script that does just that but it feels kind off funny07:07

KamionDimSum: in the Hoary timeframe we'll be looking at adopting/writing/polishing a graphical version of debian-installer07:08
pittiplovs: there might be an easier way, though:07:08
mike_waccording to a similar problem on the user lists, my totem problem [OSS device "/dev/dsp" is already in use by another program]  is linked to esd, but I'm having problems shutting it down..07:08
Kamionmarquivon: syslinux.cfg in the CD image07:08
DimSumBut it wasn't even graphical?07:08
DimSumAhhh, right07:08
pittiplovs: you can run apt-get -c /etc/apt/update.conf upgrade07:08
Kamion"graphical" is not exactly minimum criterion for an installer :-)07:08
pittiplovs: create /etc/apt/update.conf which points to a different source list07:09
NonphasisI just enabled Universe - is it dangerous to get stuff frem there?07:09
Deftjdub, Kamion, anyone I was talking to earlier, some thoughts on packages: http://www.ecs.soton.ac.uk/~psh103/temp/packages.txt07:09
DimSumNo, but if you want to be up there with the rest of the proper distroes07:09
Kamion"works" is about an order of magnitude more important, so we concentrated on that first07:09
DimSumThen a graphical installer is necessary07:09
pittiplovs: this is entry Dir::Etc::SourceList07:09
pittiplovs: man apt-get says it all07:09
DimSumI mean, lets face it, right now - when it's fully installed - Ubutnu is easily the nicest looking distro out there07:09
KamionI fundamentally disagree, but it's not going to be productive talking about it here especially since we're going to be doing a graphical installer anyway07:09

plovspitti, thanks, reading now07:09
DimSumIt's like a distro which takes everything to the XD2 level07:09

KamionNonphasis: yeah, that's an open bug, if Mark approves it that question will return07:10
DimSumNonphasis: Yeah; I know, it WAS easy, but just not beautiful, unlike the rest of the distro :P07:10
DimSumJust out of interest, are you using XFree86, or are you using XOrg? I haven't actually bothered to look yet07:11
KamionXFree86, X.org for Hoary07:11
Kamion(it didn't quite make the cut)07:11
NonphasisKamion, well, approval would seem sensible considering the apparent focus of th distro07:11
DimSumHoary being the next major version?07:11
KamionNonphasis: the initial thought was that it could be sufficiently automated, but this appears not to be the case given user feedback07:12
KamionNonphasis: we've been trying to cut questions out as far as possible07:12
KamionDimSum: yeah, due April 200507:12
DimSumThat's quite a long way away; I assume we'll be talking version 5.0 then, rather than 4.2?07:12
Kamion4.2?07:12

Nonphasis_Hiro_, it's not just setup that matters, but everyday operation... 07:51
linux_mafiaegonizer, i used to love that07:52
_Hiro_well it's that that is borked....07:52
OZ8AAZKamion: Great! Thnax!07:52
OZ8AAZ...thanks...07:52
_Hiro_I did get it to set up eventually, I'm using it right now07:52

Nonphasis_Hiro_, also remember that it's still a preview release. Still much smoother than plain debian07:53
_Hiro_but udev doesn't see my 80G HD, my sound is borked and no doubt there may be other things ;)07:53
egonizerlinux_mafia, everybody does :-)07:53
_Hiro_preview or not :/07:53
_Hiro_I think it's a bit too high lvl during the install07:53

rasherhrm.. http://wiki.ubuntu.com/BinaryDriverHowto claims I need "linux-restricted modules >= 2.6.8.1.1-3", but all I have is 2.6.8.1.0-2 .. is there an ubuntu equivalent to "unstable" that I need to switch to to get the latest and greatest?07:53
LoweIt doesn't tell me how to add those packages though07:54
_Hiro_anyway I come here to whine, so you'll pity me and will help me ;)07:54
LoweAnd i want those ;_;07:54
Nonphasis_Hiro_, I hit an IDE bug as well. Have you complained on the mailing list or filed a bug?07:54
_Hiro_not yet :/07:54

_Hiro_anyone know how I can solve my sound issue? :|07:56
_Hiro_I got 2 cards detected07:56
phlaegelwhat component would the Computer menu be in for bug filing? main-menu? gnome-panel?07:56
linux_mafiaLowe, apt-get install lamip07:56
_Hiro_but I want my SB live to be the main one07:56
fabbionesabdfl: can you add at which time the meeting will be held and who is supposed to partecipate?07:56
Kamionphlaegel: definitely not main-menu, that's part of the installer07:56
_Hiro_since that's actually the only activated one07:56
Nonphasis_Hiro_, exactly my problem, had the same with debian07:56
Nonphasis_Hiro_, blacklist the other card07:56
_Hiro_doesn't work07:57
phlaegelKamion: I was wondering that... was why I asked :-)07:57
sabdflfabbione: will do07:57
phlaegelKamion: panel, then?07:57
_Hiro_I blacklisted snd_via82xx and the module still gets loaded07:57
Nonphasis_Hiro_, what blacklist did you use?07:57
_Hiro_/etc/hotplug/blacklist, I appended snd_via82xx to it07:57
sabdflmdz: what time can i set for the meeting?07:57
Nonphasis_Hiro_, how about discover blacklist?07:58
_Hiro_because it's what I see in /proc/asound/cards07:58
_Hiro_I only have discover.conf in etc07:58
Nonphasis_Hiro_, debian always requires lots of blacklisting ;-)07:58
linux_mafia_Hiro_, i had the same prob, not in ubuntu, but in debian, i just actually deleted the offending module, kinda barbaric, but it was effective07:58
crimsundon't do blacklist it.07:58
mdzsabdfl: any time 1600 UTC or later is good for me07:58
crimsundon't blacklist, rather.07:58

Nonphasisrasher, I mean if you just need nvidia driver08:05
rasherNonphasis: I need just that, yes. It did seem kind of weird, but what I'm missing is the nvidia-glx-config. Didn't really think that'd be in linux-restricted-etc anyway, but I thought I might as well try to follow the directions.08:06
_Hiro_hmm I don't get this options thing I though it was supposed to go in /etc/modules.conf :/08:06

WWrasher, Nonphasis: Is that a mistake on the web page that rasher referred to?  I have linux-restricted-modules-2.6.8.1-2-386, version 2.6.8.1.0-2, and the nvidia driver (nvidia-glx) works.08:09

WWNonphasis: Me too (yesterday).08:11
NonphasisWW, I did it today. I had to put nvidia to /etc/modules to make it work, though08:11
