Quaseriously, does it have some self-test (i only installed once, don't remember) ?12:16
HockeyFan22i dont know12:16
crimsunriley: what nic do you use?12:17
HockeyFan22the wierd thing is that this happens on other distros's, but if i load it with nodma and noapic  it works12:17
rileycrimsun: it's attached to my soyo motherboard12:17
Quaotherwise burn another and make sure that md5sum matches... the isos contain their own md5sum, so reasonably smart burning tool, like k3b, can and does verify correctness on the image before burning (k3b default)12:17
QuaHockeyFan22: ohhhhhh, ok12:17
Se7hforget it12:17
QuaHockeyFan22: your burner then doesn't like dma!12:17
QuaHockeyFan22: i have heard about those12:18
crimsunriley: right, but what chipset is the nic?12:18
HockeyFan22im not sure if its the burner ot the hardware12:18
rileycrimsun: um, i don't know...  how would i find that out?  is it related to the chipset of the motherboard?12:18
HockeyFan22the other possibilitu is that the cdrom is a cdrw12:19
QuaHockeyFan22: well kernel config has option "enable dma only for disks" after you enable dma itself and in help for that it says there were some problems with certain drives12:19

crimsunguptan: perhaps a better question is when did you install ubuntu?12:28
Quadies_irae: what i meant is that despite the kernel setting a userspace configuration tool called kudzu could have tried to modprobe the USB module "behind your back".. which is a wild theory as USB is not supposed to work at that point anyway because kernel doesn't allow it at all... but if usbcore is a module as well, things can happen12:28

plovsmorteoh, it's hal12:31

burrikothe menu is special for ubuntu i think01:04
opimicX: I saw Mac few years ago 01:04
micXopi, heh. how does it _seem_ then?01:05
morteohok, the menu is way better than the one in standard gnome :D01:05
opimicX: usable on G4/1000.01:05
opimicX: you should try it, it was quite painless with Debian :)01:05
rileycrimsun: i ran the command and then tried to run ifconfig01:05
burrikois it worth changing my apt sources from warty to hoary?  will it make a big difference?01:06
micXopi, don't have anything faster than G4/400 here to play with. That's slow native...01:06

=== elmaya [~elmaya@] has joined #ubuntu
crimsunriley: after you ran the command, did it just return to command prompt, or did it spit out errors?01:06

opimorteoh: more like Sid in Debian ;)01:07
morteohdoes it have mono?01:07
opimono is somewhere01:07
burrikobut warty is so up-to-date anyway, so is it worth upgrading to hoary?01:07

burrikobtw, i just want to say how happy i am with ubuntu. i've been looking for a distro that works well with my laptop, and ubuntu is the first one to do everything right (plus i'm a big debian fan, so basing it on debian makes it so easy for me to dive right in with it)01:09

riley_LinuxJones, yeah ubuntu's on another comp03:30
riley_rjarret, thanks for that03:30
LinuxJonesriley_, I am not as dumb as I look :)03:30
defendguinugggg no 2.9.0 packages there03:30
Safari_Aldefendguin, then probably cvs03:31
riley_LinuxJones, lol, anyway, i had the same problem with ctrl+alt+f2... sudo -s just gave a blank line...03:31
rjarrettIt took me awhile to figure out ubuntu and getting to root. not used to the root account being disabled03:31
LinuxJonesriley_, yikes03:31
defendguinoh i was looking in gnome/desktop03:32
LinuxJonesriley_, did you get any errors while installing ?03:32
riley_so do either of you know how I should go about fixing this?  i've already tried a reinstall of the entire os and that didn't work03:32
riley_LinuxJones, only network interface not found03:32
riley_which means that i don't have an up to date version03:33
LinuxJonesriley_, I think your in trouble, without termial access you cannot fix the problem unless you can login with say knoppix and edit some files manually 03:34
LinuxJonesriley_, you know the module that needs to get loaded for your nic ?03:35
riley_well i have a gentoo livecd, would that do the job?03:35
morteohthere should be a ubuntu-livecd.. :) (is it comming.. ?) :)03:36
LinuxJonesriley_, yes you have to mount the partition that has /etc directory on it and add the module name for your network card to /etc/modules so that it will load upon re-boot03:36
riley_LinuxJones, I'm not sure, but the chipset is VIA VT6120 GbE and another guy told me i needed via-v something lol and i tried it and then he told me i'd need to edit /etc/network/interfaces, but you can only do that with sudo03:37
riley_so mount /dev/hda1, right?03:38
LinuxJonesriley_, to load the module you need to add the correct module name to /etc/modules03:38

ubuntu-nubieethe card is a netgear fa-311, which used to have a couple hiccups with other distros (but that was a couple years ago)06:04
crimsunubuntu-nubiee: i believe that uses tulip.ko06:04
crimsunubuntu-nubiee: you should be able to verify from ``dmesg'' output06:04
ubuntu-nubieedmesg says natsemi, i think that's correct06:05

ubuntu-nubieethere are 2, i have a as well06:13
ubuntu-nubieethey both can ping each other, but neither one can ping ubuntu06:13
ubuntu-nubieeis that what you mean?  which ip?06:13
crimsunwhat is's default gw?06:14
ubuntu-nubiee2.1 is the gw and 2.2's is 2.106:14
crimsunhow are they physically connected?06:15
ubuntu-nubieejust a 10mbps hub06:15

crimsunok, let's go ahead and try ruling out hardware (cabling) error06:17
crimsunswitch the cat506:17
ubuntu-nubieei had this computer working just fine on my LAN with mandrake10, that's why i'm pointing the finger at ubuntu06:17
ubuntu-nubieeyeah, tried that, i'm on my 3rd cable06:17
ubuntu-nubieeand my second hub06:18
crimsunwhen you issue a ping from the ubuntu box, does its led on the hub indicate activity?06:18
ubuntu-nubieei'm not sure it's ubuntu, just my best guess06:18
burnercan ubuntu ping itself?06:18
burnerit can't ping other machines?06:18
ubuntu-nubieeburner, yes lo and eth0 can ping themselves06:18
ubuntu-nubieeburner, exactly06:19
burnerdo other machiens have firewall of any sort?06:19
burnerand when you do a route command with no arguments, it looks right?06:19
ubuntu-nubieeyeah, my gw has a firewall, it's what i'm chatting on06:19
ubuntu-nubieeas far as i can tell06:19
=== violajack [~Michelle@roc-69-201-84-72.rochester.rr.com] has left #ubuntu []
ubuntu-nubieejust localnet and default06:20
crimsundoes your firewall permit packets from only .2?06:20
ubuntu-nubieeno, its nice to 192.168.2.*06:20
crimsunand your ubuntu nic has an irq assigned?06:21
ubuntu-nubieeroute doesn't include lo, but that isn't it, right?06:21
=== pyramid [~yokel@adsl-68-88-234-66.dsl.hstntx.swbell.net] has joined #ubuntu
crimsunthat's correct, it won't usually include lo06:21
ubuntu-nubieeyeah, irq 906:21
pyramidman i finally got xsane to work on 2.606:21
crimsunis it sharing irq 9 with any other devices?06:22
ubuntu-nubieehow do i check that?06:22
crimsun/proc/interrupts lists them06:22
burnerirq... aren't these pci devices?06:23
burnerthought irq was only issue on old isa hardware06:23
ubuntu-nubieeyup, pci06:23
ubuntu-nubieei don't have /proc/interrupts06:23
pyramidwhat is the package manager in ubuntu06:24
burnerpyramid: for a gui... use synaptic06:25
crimsunpyramid: apt, synaptic, dselect, etc.06:25
pyramidoh ok they use synaptic..nice features06:25
crimsunubuntu-nubiee: no, certain devices are very picky about irqs06:25
burnerubuntu-nubiee: i really have no idea for more troubleshooting06:25
crimsunthis much we have learned through ALSA debugging06:25
burnerif it cna ping itself but not other machines... i'd look for firewall and gateway/netmask06:26
ubuntu-nubieethat's fine.  thank you so much for the advice.  06:26
ubuntu-nubieei'll keep at it for a bit longer.06:26
crimsundefinitely check the netmask06:26
pyramidit took 8 hours and lots of recompiling with certain use flags to get xsane working with kernel 2.6...but it does work06:26
ubuntu-nubieeyeah, netmask is fine06:26
pyramidalong with gimp206:26
ubuntu-nubieethanks again, i'll prolly try again with the next big version06:26
pyramidi sure miss the simple days when the kernel had scanner drivers06:27

jasona90anyone know a good FAQ for Iptables06:50
pyramidi just want to get a camera working...with the mfc epson printer/scanner/copier06:51
DaNeoncan i set my user to root group or is it too dangerous????06:52
pyramidat least the epson works...i never could get HP or Brother mfc printers to work.06:52
pyramidbut the epson does not have built-in fax so i guess i will have to use the old modem approach with efax-gtk06:53
pyramidi used to have efax working years ago06:53
pyramidDaNeon, no...just put you in sudousers it is a config file somewhere..read the man pages on sudo06:55
pyramidDaNeon, i just don't remember those details from long ago...or else i would tell you exactly..but read the man pages it is not too hard.06:56

spooky1when the installation it almos finish07:54
defendguinhey how come nifd isnt in howl in ubuntu?07:54
pyramidspooky1, no everybody keeps secondary unused...it is for ghosting the primary and mass duplication for hardware manufacturers07:54
spooky1it asks where to install the grub MBR o where07:54
spooky1ok i got it07:54
giorsatfor anybody who uses a wireless card using prism2 driver (wlan-ng driver). after 2 days of trouble I dscovered that after installing the linux wlan-ng packages I had to add the line wireless_mode managed in etc/network/interface to get access to my access point in addition to change the line is ad hoc with "n" in /etc/wlan/config-"mylane" files. everythin is ok now. hope it helps someone07:55
pyramidspooky1, you see when you get a primary all configured and everything...then you add a secondary drive and ghost the primary and then put the secondary drive in another computer as a primary drive07:55
spooky1yes to clone the installation07:56
pyramidspooky1, that way you can sell expensive configured computers without any expense07:56
spooky1but my problem is that I want ubuntu linux installed on Slave primary hdd and keep xp on master primary hdd07:57
spooky1because my girl prefers winblows07:57
spooky1but i need both OS07:57
pyramidspooky1, don't waste secondary..put both on primary07:57
pyramidspooky1, that way you can ghost when you want07:58

monkeyc-unbjoem but what about when people want KDE not gnome or koffice etc.. i can see how it adds up09:59
joemto 30 gigs?10:00
joemgnome and kde combined would be under a gig10:00
monkeyc-unbbut thats just one example.10:00
joembut those would be the biggest examples, and they are 1/30th of the total10:00
ceftoyowheelin: http://linux.about.com/od/funnymanpages/a/funman_flog.htm10:01
pyramidand that is just a few...that doesn't count..knoda,krita,gaim,gnome-meeting,ogre,blender,povray,python,perl,ruby, and so on and so on10:01
monkeyc-unbconsider as windows network alone - my sources drive with all the installs we use or support is 50gb in size.  Admittedly you are talking several thousand users but the point is the same10:01
pyramidbut when you are building a desktop...you must take on MS and have a compeitive system...and MS has lots and lots of programmers writing all the desktop apps10:02
monkeyc-unbthen again maybe us windows admins are used to bloat :)10:02
joemstill, 30 gigs..10:02
joemall of those apps come on one suse dvd for example10:02
joemwhat is that 4.9 gigs or something10:02
pyramidit adds to 30 gigs of executables very very quickly10:02
monkeyc-unbumm not all the apps in the 30gig10:02
monkeyc-unbthats all the apps suse ship, which is their choice10:03
joemwhat are you counting in the 30 gigs?10:03
joemanything you have mentioned is on that dvd10:03
joemand I doubt you have another 20 something gigs worth of random stuff installed10:03
monkeyc-unbthe difference is between suse and debian - the package management means an app has to be in the repository which means a large repository unlike RPMS which are all over the place10:03
sabdflmonkeyc-unb: you can install ubuntu in a minimalist fashion (base only) then add the bits you want too10:03
joemunless it is a bunch of games like unreal or something10:04
pyramidwell yes..i did not even mention kiso , kopete, and many utilities10:04
monkeyc-unbdiff is apt works pretty much every time whereas RPM's are flaky, its what you chose i suppose10:04
pyramidand xbox-iso-manager10:04
toyowheelinlol no I dont need flog...I just need to let it crunch numbers10:04
sabdfljust type "custom" at the CD boot prompt10:04
sabdfland you'll end up with kernel, shell, network tools, diagnostics etc.10:04
monkeyc-unbsabdfl, i know :) persoanally i think the size is fine to be honest10:04
monkeyc-unbi rung ubuntu on a 6gb hdd which is never going to fill, my winxp box meanwhile has a 15gb c part which is 60% full, and i can do almost everything on ubuntu i do on it10:05
pyramidand i did not mention any of the several dvd players10:05
joemyou know all of these apps are around a few megs10:06
pyramidor music players or sound synthesizers or speech recognition systems10:06
joemnothing close to adding up to 30 gigs10:06
monkeyc-unbpersonally coming from the windows world as i do i find linux apps small10:06
joemfor binarys10:06
toyowheelinI think 32768bit is the highest you can go10:06
monkeyc-unbim used to 10-15mb downloads in windows for pretty much anything now, linux apps dont normally approach that with some exceptions10:06
pyramidjoem, just remember that MS has thousands of programmers around the globe constructing a desktop with Nero,isobuster,all kinds of stuff and Linux must be competitive..to be a desktop os10:07
ceftoyowheelin: wonder how many implementations allow that size.. *grin*10:07
joemI don't understand what that has to do with a desktop install using 30 gigs worth of binaries10:07
monkeyc-unbpyramid, would i be wrong in thinking a large part of apps management is the many libraries that need to be there as well?10:07
pyramidit adds up fast...and i did not even mention any of the many p2p apps10:07

monkeyc-unband the stuff for windows is not stored in one place.10:08
toyowheelincef, my computer is angry at me now I think cuz I am making it do 32768bit keys10:08
monkeyc-unbjoem ahh no he said so far he had 30gigs of binaries for the desktop not that he needed 30gigs :)10:09
pyramidmonkeyc-unb, no but people can acquire these things if they choose to do so with the MS desktop system10:09
monkeyc-unbpyramid, true they can.10:09
pyramidmonkeyc-unb, that is why MS has a monopoly on desktops10:09
monkeyc-unbpesonally i love apt and would love something like it on windows.. not managed by ms of course10:09
monkeyc-unbwell its one of the reasons pyramid, i honestly dont think the only one these days.10:10
monkeyc-unbbut a big one.10:10
pyramidmonkeyc-unb, but Linux is becoming competitive.10:10
nateI'm sure someone could arrange tht10:10
ceftoyowheelin: you let it get away with too much free wheeling.. it needs to be taught a lesson.. it's a computer, it should be more submissive.. flog it!10:10
monkeyc-unblinux is getting there fast to my mind10:10
nateyou can get Free Software collections for Windows on CD now10:10
joemok, he said he had 30 gigs and that is was rather small..I don't understand how you take up 30 gigs with these binaries10:10
joemwith the examples given anyways10:10
natewouldn't think it would be that hard to make a server install for that kind of stuff10:10

Treenaksdaniels: not 3des?10:14
q2Ummm, im trying to install Pogo, and it says i dont have Imlib1, but the apt-get says i do10:14
ceftoyowheelin: depends totalyl on what each underlying end supports.. it's negotiated at startup time.. most new versions seem to use AES10:14
q2Is it safe to remove Imlib then install it again?10:14
monkeyc-unbwe use a lot of citrix via CSG and its great to be able to use a bootable linux minimal install and be able to work on a full desktop.  saves a pile on costs10:14
cefdaniels: dsa = authentication algorithm, not encryption10:14
danielscef: oh, right10:15
monkeyc-unbq2 it should be safe, do it through synaptic is my advice10:15
