jonois the universe just debian unstable?12:49
yojimbo-sanbasically yes -it's a snapshot of sid at some $time prior to a version release12:49
Kamionjono: basically, yes; only main right now, although we were discussing that at the technical board meeting earlier12:50
jonoKamion, cool, so may non-free be made available12:50
jonoKamion, its worrying me a little that I may not be able to use debian packages in ubuntu12:51
Kamionjono: at some point soonish that will probably happen, yes, although there's still a bit of debate about the implementation12:51
jonoahh right12:51
jonoKamion, so is the idea that when Ubuntu upgrades to a new version, a simple dist-upgrade will get everyone up to date?12:52

Kamionjono: sure, universe will be resynced12:54
neuro|laptopKamion: :)12:54
jonoKamion, surely the dependencies in universe must be huge?12:55
Kamionjono: correct, which is why it's hard to recommend using Debian packages12:55

jononeuro|laptop, cool12:56
jonoKamion, is ubuntu going to allow newer packages to be installed in between releases?12:56
Kamionjono: the hoary development repository will be open during development, if that's what you mean12:57
Zappa_is there an apt souce i can add that will give me packages such as KDE?12:57
jonoKamion, ahhh right, so if a new version of Blender comes out and is added to debian unstable, I assume it will be in the hoary repo?12:57

Keybukaxe9dotcom: dual-booting Linux and XP when they're on separate drives *is* possible.  The best way to do it is install Windows on the primary drive, then swap them so it's the slave and install Linux on the new primary drive with grub in the MBR.  Then add a record for the Windows drive with "map (hd0) (hd1); map (hd1) (hd0)" in it to swap the drives around so Windows thinks it's booting from the primary drive when really isn't01:41

subterrifici can try disabling that even04:23

Tsjoklatoh well then I think you found the problem04:23
joemjward, It isn't that, the install cd has hardware detection problems and fails, but I can boot fine from the live cd04:23

subterrificand i just did04:25
jwardjoem: I had to disable some usb stuff the first time with the install cd, wasn't happy with my USB hub built in to my monitor, you should be able to do some tweakign with the boot options on the install cd.04:25

joemthere is a bug on it somewhere, but they are going for outlook migration, so they might not care about that07:10
jameshschweeb: why?  Because it makes things internally consistent?07:10
schweebI'm a firm believer in the settings being in the tools menu... if anything, not the edit menu, but the file menu, where you have your printer settings and such07:11
schweebcan argue with me all you want, but I consider edit to be the wrong place07:12

joemschweeb: where is the sense in the tools menu07:14
cleeschweeb: of course.07:14
joemwhat does editing prefs have to do with tools07:14
cleeschweeb: however, the point is that all apps should comply with the HIG fully whereever the HIG has something to say07:14
cleeschweeb: And when the HIG is wrong, then the apps will all be consistently wrong07:14
cleeschweeb: Then when the HIG is fixed, all of the apps will become consistently fixed07:14
jameshschweeb: what should an app do if it has no other items to go in the tools menu?07:14
schweebjoem: look at your edit menu, is there anything else in there similar to editing preferences?07:15
joemdepends on the app, in epiphany I have personal data and toolbar07:15

joemthough if fire fox is going to be consistant with it, they should move themes to edit as well07:17
joembecuase that is very similar to prefs, and they should be in the same menu07:17
schweebreally, the hig should have called for a new "Preferences" menu or something07:17

plovs_Britt, or should I go and have a coffee?08:34
Brittplovs_: the first part is correct ... the second is a bug08:35
phlaegelwhy is that a bug? sudo runs as root, so logically the app should ask for root passwd when called without sudo.08:35
plovs_phlaegel, it is not a debian bug but it is an ubuntu-bug as ubuntu banned root08:36
plovs_phlaegel, and it won't work without root08:36

plovs_Britt, is aptitude an ubuntu-native app or did  I pull it in from universe?08:38

=== conekg [cone@P-5.231.EUnet.yu] has joined #ubuntu
phlaegelto do that right(ish), apps that need root would have to implicitly call sudo...08:39

Brittplovs_: I believe it's native, but don't quote me on that.08:40
subterrificphlaegel: you can make a launcher for the app that runs it with gksudo, that is what ubuntu is doing for all of the other apps that need root08:40
plovs_Britt, I'll just file it as a bug and then we'll see (I like filing bugs)08:41
subterrificeverything in the system configuration menu is that way08:41
Brittplovs_: great :)08:42
subterrificphlaegel: synaptic works the same way08:42
phlaegelsubterrific: what about cli? or other apps? I'm not sure there's a clean way to really "fix" it.08:42
subterrificcli apps you run using sudo or run with a root term (sudo -s)08:43
phlaegelgksudo is kind of an illusory fix, imho08:43
subterrifici suppose, but it works08:43
phlaegelyeah, it works fine, I have no problem with it as it is. that's why I'm questioning the bug :-)08:43
subterrificif you're digging around finding apps like aptitude or command line apps, you need to know how sudo works08:44

ishtvon|x31: seems to be an incompatibility with -n and --no-desktop..08:45

Mithrandirleex30: upgrades are supported, yes09:27
jdubleex30: from CD and 'net09:27
|trey|Ubuntu is Debian... but Debian is not Ubuntu, yeah, something like that  :)09:27
|trey|jdub: still keeping busy  8-)09:27
matt2I had no idea....09:28
Treenaksjdub: do you ever sleep?09:28
ajjdub: any idea where the warty Release.gpg key is?09:28
Solkariswhat multimedia support like so far .. IE how hard is it to get DVD and MP3 Playback working09:28
ajjsub: (/misc/daily_signing_key.asc is a different one)09:28
Mithrandiraj! long time no see.09:28
matt2I figured out why my themes didn't install into /usr/share/themes.. haha xfce4-themes is a package of ICON themes.... =P09:28
|trey|aj: blah.... /etc/apt/list.sources tells you...09:28
aji'm trying to upgrade from sarge to warty, i don't have an install yet09:29
|trey|If you know how to read it... man sources.list (I'm high, wrong way around)09:29
ishIs it possible to edit the 'Computer' menu?09:29
|trey|One is wrong at least  :/09:29
jdubaj: hrm, not sure. elmo or lamont would know.09:29
jdubTreenaks: i'm in .au.09:29
jdubaj: upgrades are going to hurt.09:29
|trey|ish: yes... it was configured somehow... I forget where the vfolder is that configures it though...09:30
ajjdub: pfft09:30
ajjdub: my last upgrade stopped me from being able to suspend or switch to VCs without crashing X, how much worse can this be?09:30
|trey|aj: 'deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu warty main restricted'09:31
Solkarisis there going to be a forum at some point like the GentooForums?09:31
jdubaj: it won't have all the lovely defaults or user experience, or... ;)09:31
|trey|universe at the end is sarges main without dublicates...09:31
ajjdub: err, my prefered desktop is four xterms :)09:31
|trey|jdub: if he chooses "manual package selection" then adds that... it should install your wonderful 2.8  :)09:32
jdubaj: one wonders if there's much of a point ;)09:32
ajtrey: yes, but where do i get the key that signed http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/warty/Release.gpg ?09:32
ajjdub: there's always the hope of ubuntu/dists/warty-security getting populated some day...09:33
|trey|aj: apt 0.6 is not in warty... thus there might not be one... perhaps try hoarty (or however its spelled...)09:33
ajhoary's empty, and Release.gpg's got a signature, and i've got a script for verifying them...09:33
jdubhoary doesn't exist yet :)09:33

|trey|0.6 is in Experimental... its pretty nice  :)  so is 2.8 (last I checked) ... experimental broke though, so I figured thats a bad idea  :(09:35
ajexperimental broke?09:35
|trey|Ubuntu 2.8 is nicer though... more logical, and closer to how I like it  :)09:35
|trey|aj: [gasp] 09:36
ajas in the packages in experimental broke, or..?09:36
Mithrandiraj: or you could poke Kamion, I think he might know and have access to get the key out.09:36
fabbionehumpf..09:36
leex30So I can upgrade from sarge to ubuntu by putting 'deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu warty main restricted' in /etc/apt/sources.list and running 'apt-get dist-upgrade'?09:36
|trey|aj: it tends to do that if you don't pay attention to b.d.o09:36
ajkamion's same TZ as elmo isn't he?09:36

|trey|usually new Suse and Red Hat (Suse recently cuz of what Novell is doing... mainly so I am familier with what I will see in Enterprises)09:41

ajjdub: (when's planet ubuntu happening anyway? i wanna see elmo blogging)09:42
matt2like gentoo alot too but things tend to break and I hate compile times =(09:42
|trey|Ubuntu's GNOME is... yes... but with GNOME's release manager at the helm, its bound to be pretty good  :)09:42
topylimandrake is great. it saved me from redhat 6. then debian saved me from rpm altogether.09:42
leex30so will every ubuntu release be strictly free software?09:42
Treenakssuse 9.1's gnome sucks09:42

WWEasy question: How do I get nautilus (or whatever else is easiest) to burn an iso to CD?  I usually used k3b B.U. (Before Ubuntu).10:05
plovs_WW, right-click - burn to cd10:06
|trey|WW: I use cdrecord... for iso's... (2.6) cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc --speed=24 --data blah.iso... for music... I think its --audio10:07
plovs_WW, if your burner allows it, I checked allow overburning in configuration-editor10:07
subterrificis anyone aware of an application that makes it very easy to encrypt files (with gpg perhaps?). bonus points if it integrates with nautilus10:07

plovs_WW, use an rw just in case ;)10:09
|trey|WW: what I said with --data works for iso's... if you want to use cli10:09

|trey|I usually end up with an iso on the disc like you... cdrecord does it how I want  :/10:10
topyliwe need a gtk2 version of xcdroast10:11
WWThe right-click trick worked.  I think I screwed up the first time because when I put the blank CD in, an empty window popped up, so I just drag-n-dropped the ISO into it, and wrote to disk.10:12
|trey|never used that either  :/10:12
|trey|I just learned that they all use cdrecord... so I did what the pretty gui made it hard to do  :/10:12

topyliTomcat_: we have about 50 researches with desktops and laptops. about a dozen have mac, and about five have linux. these people need no support at all. the rest are win2k and they keep the support guys busy. the machines are of course all the same harware :)10:36

|trey|subterrific: I certainly couldn't tell them  :/10:47
subterrificfirst it was only for apps that mimic real world devices10:47
topyli|trey|: if you put in a cdrw with stuff on it, the volume manager mounts it. then nautilus cd burner gets confused. you have to umount from the command line because nautilus can only "eject" it, not "umount" :(10:47
subterrificthen they make safari brushed metal10:47
|trey|It's Carbon vs Cocoa though...10:47
subterrificand then the finder10:47
subterrificand now i've totally lost them...10:48
subterrifici think the mac platform has far fewer good developers too10:48
subterrificapple has done just about everything they can to push developers away over the years10:49
|trey|Developers.a.c... Cocoa and Carbon... look them up... Carbon is older shit updated for OS X basically... but they have different themes...10:49
subterrificits gotten to the point that the few good ones left are just traded around by apple, adobe, macromedia (although their mac apps have taken a nose dive recently)10:49
|trey|Guess a few people still like Carbon...10:50
subterrificyou have to use carbon still for many things10:50
|trey|subterrific: apple started competing with adobe, and to some extent macromedia though... thats why...10:50
subterrificdriving developers away10:51
subterrificthey even compete with small shareware developers10:51
|trey|The products basically aren't needed, because these are things Apple already installs....10:51
|trey|Or offers...10:51
|trey|Joe User won't go past Apple.com if what he wants is listed there... he obviously doesn't care about money...10:51
|trey|Things like Microsoft Office... and Micrsoft Virtual PC - Windows XP...10:53
|trey|Thats why they are popular...10:53
|trey|You can also use basically the entire Open Source software relm, and work on Darwin though... and plenty of Open Source projects are being used...10:54
|trey|Hardly pushing devs away... Jordan Hubbard didn't appear to think so at least...10:55
|trey|Co Founder of FreeBSD...10:55
|trey|He appeared to think they were an attractive oppertunity for a developer... X11 for OSX... its all there for Open Source software... and Fink is Debian's package management... Gentoo's Portage can be used...10:56
tcurdtto be honest: it's less the GUI that drives people to use OSX (btw: I like it) ...it's the easy installation and the software that's available10:57
Loweholy crap how many upgrades are there lol, does ubuntu have new ones every day.10:57
subterrific|trey|: try using some open source software on darwin or OS X, its way behind linux10:57
|trey|Lowe: the Release Preview would be expected to perhaps....yes...10:57
subterrificfor exmaple, Fink is now shipping gnome 2.4....wooo!10:57

jonosubterrific, http://paste.plone.org/146811:27
subterrificjono: so you're all set at the kernel level11:27
subterrificmy guess is that you've got the volume all at 0 ;)11:28
subterrificthats the ALSA default11:28
subterrificso you probably need to run a mixer and unmute some channels and turn the volume up11:28
subterrificyou can try Applications->Multimedia->Volume Control and switch to the tab labeled [ALSA Mixer] 11:29
subterrificbut this http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/showproduct.php?product=1040 suggests that you install some app named envy24control. so try that if alsamixer doesn't work11:30

tsengjdub: hmm the wiki page for universe candidates says its immutable04:43
Sirius_Blackis there an mplayer binary or is it better to compile it from source?04:43
AnnaTvon, the task wasn't to create a launcher for 'display' it was to find an application (and add it to the GUI/panel) and apparently the command display was needed to assist the launcher in finding the applications.04:43
WWWW: `display` is an executable command; the launcher runs this command when you click on it.04:43

AnnaWell I 'found' the application in the sense that I installed it from the SPM, but I didn't specify it's location to the launcher it that's what you mean.04:46
AnnaI understand WW04:47
WWAnna: On the other hand, a few packages that I have installed automatically showed up in the Applications menu.04:47
AnnaYes, I discovered that too with Abi Word04:48
AnnaIt was just there in the panel at its appropriate location under "office"04:48

tvon|x31eg, when you right click on the panel -> add to panel -> custom application launcher..  You added "imagemagick" for "name" and "display" for "command" ?04:54
AnnaI have gimp already, actually I don't need imagemagick, this was just an exercise and I chose an application from which I assumed that it wouldn't burn a hole into my system trying to run it04:55

tvon|x31You should be okay then.  Its mostly a matter of figuring out what app you should use to accomplish a specific task05:00
NonphasisOld way is sometimes the only way because the Gnome way requires you to search for all kinds of obscure stuff from cvs logs and whatnot05:01
queuetueHi.  I've inherited a remote debian server, and ... caught between the blind idealism, love for the ancient, and all-around disagreement about what makes a distro 'good', I basically need an alternative.  Something tested and modern, that I can upgrade to completely remotely, that I can use to host a postfix+mysql+courier system...05:01

cybrjackle|workDo  you use pinning to block installation of packages08:41
lozsubterrific: essentially I want to know how I tell alsa to use the device, the install never did.08:42
subterrificloz: what does: sudo modprobe snd-intel8x0 do?08:42
=== joem [~joem@c-67-173-77-82.client.comcast.net] has joined #ubuntu
subterrificloz: normally it auto detects everything and loads the drivers automatically, so this is a bug or ALSA doesn't support that card08:43
lozI had it all working under gentoo.. although not alsa.  however alsa has the driver..08:43
lozthe module probes but does nothing in /dev/ for example..08:44
subterrificDell has some issues, for example, my Dell at home has an SB Live! but it doesn't work with the standard SB Live! driver. i had to patch the ubuntu kernel with the latest ALSA and add a new driver for it08:44
subterrificloz: use paste.plone.org and show me the output from lsmod08:45
subterrificloz: you should also open a bug for this at bugzilla.ubuntu.org because everything should "Just Work"08:45
NonphasisSB cards have several variations for the same card08:45
lozsubterrific: done08:46
subterrificNonphasis: this is a Dell specific variation, pretty sure no one else sells them. the driver source code specifically mentions Dell and the models the card ships with :\08:46
Nonphasissubterrific, yeah, it's probably some cheapo variation with emu chip...08:47
subterrificloz: everything looks in order there, are you sure you have no /dev/snd entries?08:47

lezardI Don't know exactly when would be best for testing the release in fact09:07

Nonphasishmm... if jeff is here, this might be a good place to inject some gnome feature request ;-)09:07
Kamionlezard: earlier the better09:08
lezardjdub: well, it's not a gnome feature request, but it seems that support for eagle-usb is missing09:08
lezardIt is a driver for USB ADSL modem09:08

Kamionor maybe not, I don't see it09:09
tvon|X31where death awaits you with big sharp pointy teeth09:09
Kamionit was brought up on one of the mailing lists at least09:09
NonphasisI'm not sure if such beasts should be even marginally supported09:09
lezardNonphasis: I hope they will :)09:10
Nonphasislezard, it's just that such support is completely *unnucessary*. People should really buy ethernet modems and that's the end of it09:11
Nonphasislezard, supporting them is an unnecessary drag when almost everybody has a proper modem09:11
diemanKamion: yay, a shell!09:11
lezardNonphasis: well, that's a point of viex09:11
lezard*view09:11
KamionNonphasis: if both the hardware and the drivers exist and are reasonably free etc., we should try to support them09:12
lezardNonphasis: I totally disagree with you, but I can respect that09:12
diemanKamion: i can get you a /proc/bus/pci/devices09:12

Kamiondieman: cjwatson@canonical.com09:13
