SolkarisI honestly thought about yanking gstreamer totally .. but decided I wasnt going to break this install playing like I usually do04:34
SolkarisDashiva because the gnome guys want gstreamer to work .. its just the pesky reality that at this junction it doesn't, but there is always hope04:35

kaplanfxit should be in your syslog or when you loaded the module it should maybe have said06:25
kaplanfxI dunno about wireless specifically06:25
kaplanfxbut I think iwconfig is the equiv to ifconfig06:25

DeathwindI was thinking more along the lines of your manic-depressive bouts with samba and apt, but that too07:46
Jaraminbob2: well, to make a long story short, I'm making a Nautilus script that needs to process multiple files, which might have spaces in them. The only way I've found was to wrap each file name in quotes in the script, but then, if the filename actually contains a quote, the script will fail...07:47

guptanLinuxJones: but I'm not getting right kind of refresh rates, and screen is kind of jittering06:33

Treenakse06:34
bronsonTreenaks: Right.  The disk is partitioned fine.06:34

bronsonUnder the title "Not yet implemented!"06:36
LinuxJonesguptan, ar eyou using the nv drivers now ?06:36
guptanLinuxJones: I can see horizontal and vertical values. But in the screen resolution menu, it shows somethinge like 61Hz.06:36
Treenaksbronson: you might want to remove the partitions and re-create them then06:36
bronsonNothing needs to be resized, so I'm not quite sure why it's trying to...06:36
bronsonI just did.06:36
Treenaksbronson: did you select 'format this partition' from the partitioner menu?06:37
bronsonThis is a work computer, so I can't touch hda1 and hda4.06:37
guptanLinuxJones: no, I haven't installed nv drivers for ubuntu now. But I saw nv working in Gnoppix (I saw the NV logo while booting)06:37
Treenaksbronson: and a mount point?06:37
LinuxJonesguptan, are you sure you know what refresh rate your monitor can handel @ the resolution that you have set ?06:37
bronsonTreenaks: yep.  hda3 on / and hda6 on /home.  hda5 is swap.06:37
Treenaksbronson: dont knwo then, sorry06:38
bronsonIt's an odd layout because I can't touch hda1 and hda4 but it should be perfectly fine.06:38
guptanLinuxJones: it was working fine in SuSE, configured with sax2.06:38
bronsonCriminy.06:38
LinuxJonesguptan, the nv drivers provide basic support for nvidia chipsets. The drivers from NVidia will give you 3D capabilities which you might want to have.06:38
bronsonSo, there's no way for me to install Ubuntu????06:38
LinuxJonesguptan, have a look @ this >> http://wiki.ubuntulinux.org/BinaryDriverHowto06:38

Kamionhmmmmmmm06:58
Kamionit is in theory possible to bypass partman completely, but you have to know partman very well, and stuff later may fail06:59

gniitopyli: my other question was about noapic, is it something strange about my set that would cause me to have to change grub to boot up?08:58

daniels|trey|: yes, and its sole purpose in life is to violate patents09:00
jimii thought it was bug #1419, but it looks different, because mine was during install process (only with network ON)09:01
daniels|trey|: that is no defence09:01
