|trey|joeyh: very handy  :)12:12
neighborleebollocks_, of course i'm not running FC2 I just know it does compile in it as I tried to see...so something about debian is causing this error and I have no clue what part ;(12:13
|trey|joeyh: haven't tried hurd in forever though... was too slow last I tried crosshurd ;)12:13
bollocks_neighborlee, then you might be including a header multiple times, or...12:13

Scognitois there a tool to configure the boot removing modules/scripts i don't need?12:35

mdzShadowHawk: sudo modprobe loop12:37
mdzShadowHawk: sudo mount -o loop /boot/initrd.img-`uname -r` /mnt12:37

=== Agrajag [~Agrajag@wg03.ucr.edu] has joined #ubuntu
ShadowHawkNo, I can't12:40
ShadowHawkI'll explain why12:40
ShadowHawkI have /dev/hda2 and /dev/hdc2 on the system.  hda2 was my old SuSE system, which I'm in now, and hdc2 was where I installed Ubuntu12:40
ShadowHawkMy computer only lets me boot off the first disk, so I added the Grub lines that Ubuntu put on to the end of the Grub script that was on hda12:41
neighborleesorry but I dont know where else to ask this so ...how might I fix this compile error >>>  checking how to run the C++ preprocessor... /lib/cpp12:41
neighborleeconfigure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check < thx anyone ;-))12:41
ShadowHawkThat way I could choose the old SuSE system as normal (using now to talk here), or I could boot into Ubuntu12:41
ShadowHawkIt worked fine until I upgraded Ubuntu kernel, which now panics with this.12:41

ShadowHawkIf I look in the /boot section on hdc2 (by mounting it in SuSE), I see only the one original kernel there.12:43
mdzShadowHawk: ah12:43
mdzShadowHawk: if you used ubuntu's grub, it would automatically update the list with new kernels12:43
kmoffatOption "SWcursor" "on"12:43
Agrajagbuild-essential includes gcc, g++ ,and auto* tools, and some other stuff12:43

axe9dotcomPackage samba is not available, but is referred to by another package.05:39

mojoAgrajag: OK, so for example, If I create my own Linux for commercial, so I can pay for Xfree86 to have the license rite?06:00
Agrajagoh right06:00
Agrajagtrypod: it makes it so, for one, dragging windows across each other doesn't make them smear06:00

WopIs there a way to remote control my ubuntu system from windows? I noticed there was an option on it to allow remote connections. =x06:03
AgrajagWop: well, you could run an ssh server, a VNC server, or just use an X server on the windows machine and use X11 forwarding through SSH06:03
Agrajagbut the simplest is probably vnc06:03

Agrajagthere are other free licenses.06:08
mojoAgrajag: what the? I'm confused! can u explain to me pls?06:09
trypodisnt unbutu just debian ?06:09
Agrajagxfree86's license was compatible with the GPL though, and no longer is.06:09
trypodunbutu is a sarge pre release ?06:09
mojoAgrajag: what about the Xfree86 developers? Are they also Xorg developers?06:09
Agrajagother license for OSS are the BSD license, the Mozilla Public License, and the Apple Public Source License06:09
Agrajagmojo: some of them jumped ship to xorg, I think.06:09
AgrajagSome contribute patches to both.06:10
Agrajaghttp://www.xfree86.org/current/LICENSE1.html that is the license for xfree06:10
lizanyone know how to get my network working on ubuntu?..it says that i dont have smb installed, yet if i do a find on it, its there..i just dont know how to activate/run it so that it will detect my lan06:10
trypodis unbutu a sarge pre release ?06:10
mojoAgrajag: k, so at realease 4.4, Xfree86 license is not compatible with GPL06:10
Agrajag"Except as contained in this notice, the name of the XFree86 Project shall not be used in advertising or otherwise to promote the sale, use or other dealings in this Software without prior written authorization from the XFree86 Project."06:10
AgrajagThat clause is what broke GPL compatibility06:10
danielstrypod: Ubuntu is based on Debian, but with a far shorter release cycle, improved installer, many improved packages, GNOME 2.8 with Ubuntu modifications as the default desktop, et al.06:10
Agrajagbecause it places restrictions.06:10

trypodhow do i upgrade unbutu from an older release ?06:19
danielsjdub: you don't have one?06:19
jdubdaniels: because it doesn't depend on howl, and should build with howl06:19
jdubs/should/shouldn't/06:19
danielstrypod: there's nothing actually listening to block access to06:19
jdubit probably dlopens and doesn't care... hrm.06:20
danielsyeah, I assume it's all about the dlopening06:20
jdubbut the build checks for howl ;)06:20
lizeep..is there antoehr way of doing my sound?..i have no idea how to use this06:20
danielswhich makes sense from a gnome-vfs point of view, 'cause it's dynamic06:20
danielsjdub: huh?06:20
danielsjdub: isn't howl ... not quite unrelated, but totally not below gnome-cfs?06:21
danielss/cfs/vfs/06:21
trypodif i start web browsing ther gona be something open 06:21
jdubgnome-vfs uses howl for dns-sd06:21
Agrajagliz: if anything is muted you'll only have to do it once06:21
jdubthe build checks for it06:21
danielstrypod: yes, but not listening on an external port.06:21
danielsjdub: oh, howl's the mdns stuff06:21
Agrajagliz: all you need are the arrow keys, M to mute/unmute, and Esc to exit06:21
danielsjdub: if so, then it probably just disables specific functionality, but leaves a stub libdns-sd around06:21
Agrajaganything muted will say [Off]  next to the mixer name06:21

jonoahhh02:00

pittijono: Linux root=/dev/hda1 should work02:01
jonopitti, is there a way to list partitions in yaboot?02:01
pittijono: however, this does not change the boot partition02:01
pittijono: I don't know, sorry02:01
jonopitti, it says kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)02:02
pittijono: may it be that you forgot to add the initrd?02:02
schalkehousetier: Java alone works on my system, too. My problem seems to be the RealPlayer10. It is not listed in the installed plugins. Joining a site, where RealPlayer is necessary I get a white field and together with Java the browser crashes.02:02

jonopitti, my old kernel wont boot - that does complain about the initrd02:04

avihhi. any liveCD for ubuntu?02:08

jonopitti, can I pass the initrd to the kernel at boot?02:09
carlosmanchine: as Treenaks says, the ubuntu way to do it is using hal/pmount/nautilus02:09

Kamionjono: yaboot doesn't support passing an initrd parameter on its command line02:13
KamionI know of no way to do this in yaboot unfortunately02:13
Kamionjono: you'll have to boot from the CD, run up to partitioning, switch to tty2, chroot, fix /etc/yaboot.conf, run ybin02:14
jonoKamion, what d you mean run up paritioning?02:14

AtticusWindows has seemed to "eat" my grub installation, and now when i restart my pc... i dont get a boot select screen, it just goes straight to windows04:16
Dr_Willisi dont recall if the  install cd has a rescue mode or not.04:17
AtticusIt has none that I am aware of04:17
Dr_Willismany distros do .  Or tou can boot some 'live cd' and chroot over to your existing install and reinstall grub.04:17
AtticusDr Willis: i am new to linux this is my first time with any distro04:18
Kamionit does04:18
eazel7I finished installing packages in ubuntu04:18
eazel7debootstrapped from woody04:18
Dr_Willisi use so many distros i cant keep them all straight.04:18
Kamionboot from the CD, run up to partitioning, switch to tty2, chroot, fix whatever you want04:18
Kamionsomething more automatic will happen at some point04:19
eazel7I wonder why gnome deosn't runs yet, the thing is that it delays up to ten minutes to start, and doesn't starts completly04:19

AtticusWhen i first installed ubuntu, it went fine.. the computer rebooted during installation and then grub started and loaded into ubuntu to finish up the install and i made it to the desktop and was able to use everything fine, but when i switched back to windows, it seemed to override my grub installation for some reason or another?04:21

rburtonleonv: but it was in synaptic if you want to do it the Ubuntu Way04:23
KamionAtticus: so, you booted Windows from grub, and then when you rebooted grub was gone? or something else?04:24
AtticusHere is my setup, i have 2 hard drives in my machine, primary master is a sata drive which i have 5 partitions on, 1 = windows, 2= ntfs data, 3= linux main 4= linux swap 5= windows swap04:24
rburtonsounds like XP trashing the boot record as usual04:24
leonvrburton: when I do a apt-cache policy nvidia-glx it comes back with Installed: (none), Candidate: (none), odd?04:24
Atticushard drive 2 is just used for backup, nothing to do with grub or linux is on it04:25
rburtonleonv: when you added restricted to your sources.list, did you apt-get update?04:25

trukuloalias[k] , your problems are from the incorrect repository, as i can say04:43
trukuloAtticus, you have to download a linux live CD04:43

plovsrburton, :)05:01
haggaiWW_: does adding 'export SAL_DISABLE_CUPS=1' to your /etc/openoffice/openoffice.conf allow you to print?05:01
