gmaremember MyKq3's high CPU load? we've been chatting about it and the strange thing is he was 0% idle, 97% user, and the highest ranking process in top was X with 10% (caused by running top). could it be a rootkit job?12:06

jgeorgesonSolkaris: I'd rather use the nautilus interface to burn an iso i already have, or just to make a data cd of some random set of files, but k3b is much nicer for doing audio cd, video cd, dvd, etc (i don't think nautilus interface even does any of those)12:30

theantixklein: I tried disabling apm, but that didn't affect my laptop (Toshiba Satellite 2450) -- maybe it will on yours -- the only thing that helped me was the BIOS setting12:31

Solkarisjgeorgeson aye .. it doesnt so if you need a real cd burner you need k3b .. which is why I said to asubedi that comparing the two .. nautilus cd creation software sucks in compared to k3b. Believe me I wish there was a Gnome based burner that was as nice as K3B because I HATE installing KDE and QT libraries to just to get a full function burner suite12:33

jharrisonRuffianSoldier: you leading the pep rally?02:26
LeeColletonare there any issues with including strong encryption with ubuntu?  Why was gnupg included but no key manager (like seahorse or gpa)?02:26
meffheh, gnupg is a key manager02:26
jharrisonNg: fglrx?02:26
LeeColletonyeah, like lynx is a web browser02:26

SmokingFireI just logged a enhancement for Ubuntu, what do you think? https://bugzilla.ubuntu.com/show_bug.cgi?id=258502:27
jharrisonRuffianSoldier: link?02:27
tvon|x31Didn't seahorse just have a new release?02:28
georgiagpg is not a gui key manager and lynx is not a gui browser, but they are respectively key managers and browsers02:28
theantixI think Seahorse is being considered for gnome 2.10 isn't it?02:28
LeeColletonI'm making the point that the average end user will not be able to use gnupg from the command line.  Nor will they want to use lynx02:28
tvon|x31dunno, I have/use it and it's decent02:28

LinuxJoneschuck backup your /etc/X11XF86Config-4 file from your Suse install to a floppy. Then copy to Ubuntu after install.03:06
TheMusoLinuxJones: I am not sure if that is the best idea. All he needs is the driver info, but sometimes different distros do things differently, I.E fonts, etc.03:07
TheMusoI have tried doing that accross different distros before, with less than satisfactory results.03:08
ograLinuxJones: i'd rather take knoppix or try the ubuntu live cd03:08
chuckATI Rage 128 Mobility MF (r128)03:08
TheMusochuck: What might be an idea, is if you can, grab the latest live cd release, load that, and then copy the configuration from that onto your HD.03:08

TheMusopaulproteus: That is OSS. Better to use ALSA IMO.04:32
paulproteusTheMuso: Oops, you're right.04:32

witigonenThanks, TheMuso.  I guess my first question right now is how I can edit keyboard shortcuts- I have a Logitech keyboard and would like to be able to use the multimedia keys.  Is there a way I can do this aside from using the xmms-itouch plugin, or is that the best way for me to do it?06:31
fabbioneKeyserSoze: i would try to reconfigure the locales06:31
bronsonI just wish that root had a password up until the very last step of the install so I didn't have to reboot off CD back there.06:31

Amroclamont, i tried to install it like 4 times, each time the phiehp.ko and shpch.ko both fzcked up and said fatal errors06:45
bronsonWOW.06:45
witigonenTheMuso, speaker volume has always been very low.  But, like I said, it's not important, I usually have things playing.06:45
lamontAmroc: yeah - prolly bad burn06:45
bronsonHow did Ubuntu know to put "acpi=off" in by boot params?06:45
=== Amroc is done with linux for now, is happy with winblows for the time being
=== Amroc will update once he gets a new comp
bronsonThat's impressive.06:45
lamontAmroc: will get you a good liveCD in any case.06:46
lamontshould even work with your *(^) NIC06:46
witigonenTheMuso, are you still interested in knowing the contents of /proc/asound?06:46
bronsonAmroc: are you talking about those 2 messages on boot saying "invalid module" or somesuch?06:46
TheMusoYes I am actually.06:46
bronsonIf so, those appear to be harmless.06:47
Amrocim not sure what it was, all i know is that both those said fatal error on start up... and it didnt want to work bronson06:47
witigonenTheMuso, I have: card0, cards, devices, modules, nForce2, oss, pcm, seq, timers and version.06:47
Amroclamont, you mean it will sense my net card this time?06:47
lamontshould06:47
bronsonAmroc: so it died immediately after printing those?06:47
bronsonIf so, then yeah, that's bad.06:47
TheMusoOk I know what is going on here, and it is REALLY messy. I am even thinkin go lodging a bug about it.06:47
bronsonMy machine prints those 2 messages and then finishes booting fine.06:48
witigonenReally... Well, I'm ready to get gritty.06:48
bronsonThat's right after it says "Configuring Hotplug" right?06:48
TheMusoWhen hotplug sees your USB device, for some weird reason, it loads the OSS audio driver, before the snd-usb-audio driver gets loaded.06:48
witigonenI see.06:48
Amrocbronson, it got into the desktop, there was a 1inch by 1 inch grey fuzzy box like on a broken tv, and after like 2 minutes it would SLOW down to like .02 fps (updating every like 10 seconds)06:48
TheMusoWhat I would suggest you do, is add audio to your /etc/hotplug/blacklist file, and whenever you boot up, your USB sound/mic or whatever it is will be controlled by ALSA.06:49
witigonenTheMuso, that sounds very nice.06:49
lamontAmroc: actually, would be interested in seeing if my new liveCD image boots and detects your network card..06:49
bronsonAmroc: no visible desktop right?  Just a gray rectangle?06:49
lamontotoh, would need to do that tomorrow.06:49
Amrocits hard to explain, its in the boot up process where it messed up, i had a desk top, but it had a 1x1 gry rectange on it just to the right of the center of the screen06:49
witigonenTheMuso, so just throw in 'audio' somewhere in the blacklist file?06:49
=== lamont hopes to have warty-rc2-live-i386.iso available in about 10 hours or so.
fabbioneKeyserSoze: any luck?06:50
bronsonAmroc: this is well before X tries to launch?06:50
TheMusowitigonen: At the end would be best I think.06:50
witigonenTheMuso, Thank you.06:50
TheMusoThen what I also suggest, is to rmmod audio, and modprobe snd-usb-audio06:50
TheMusoThis will bring the device under ALSA control immediately.06:50

TheMusowitigonen: Try lamont's suggestion first.06:52
lamontalso a bit old - could be just bad burn.06:52
lamontAmroc: stuck in some fire training that I must makeup before month end06:52
bronsonAmroc: maybe you could try hitting F7 (I think -- it's one of those Fs) at the first boot prompt and turning off the console.06:52
witigonenTheMuso, lamont, XMMS was the only thing I can think of that was using it, and it is gone now.06:52
lamontwas hoping they'd lecture _first_, and I could leave when they got to skills.  they went the other direction06:52
bronsonThat might help.  The kernel console code is still flaky -- I had to turn it off today to get my install to finish.06:52

witigonenTheMuso, check your query window.06:54

KazeNoBokushaalsa? really?08:19

KazeNoBokushabronson, debian sarge's gnome package has it this way too08:31

crimsunalsa-lib's dmix is lower level than esd or arts, so that's what I would choose09:59

CraHanwhen I use cdrecord with /dev/sg0 on the commandline it works fine12:22
CraHanbut nautilus-cd-burner keeps trying to use /dev/sr012:22
dynCraHan: symlink it? :)12:23
CraHandyn: can't both devices are valid12:23
CraHan/dev/sr0 is the one I need to use to automount the cdrom12:24

atariboyHow can i get into a text mode console. Preferably before Ubuntu boots X11/gnome12:24
CraHanstrange I know, but I can't get it to automount using /dev/sg012:24
dynatariboy: pass 'single' on the kernel command line12:24
dyni'm not that familiar with ubuntu so far but that should boot you into runlevel 1 (single mode), where you can do your work and pass towards multiuser runlevels12:25
CraHanyeah when grub starts go into the menu12:25

atariboysounds easier too :) how would i return from doing the mv command to booting x11 by default again?12:28
mrjivedyn: using a "single" mode is very different than using a non graphical start ;)12:28
mrjiveatariboy: the invers... rename K99gd into S99gdm12:28
atariboyta12:28
mrjivewhen the system starts in runlevel 2 every script starting with S is started, while those starting with K are killed12:29
CraHanI personally move S99blabla to s99blabla12:31
CraHansince the service wouldn't be running, there wouldn't be a need to kill it12:31
CraHanbut either way works12:31
torporwhat about just using 'telinit 3'?  this won't work?12:31
torporor 'telinit 2'?12:31
mrjiveCraHan: it does not work, for example, switching from runlevel 2 to runlevel 1 .. or other12:31
mrjiveit is more correct to use K12:31
CraHanmrjive: ah yes indeed12:32
CraHanok so I hook up the burner, turn it on and syslog reports that sr0 and sg0 are created by udev12:33
CraHanall fine12:33
dyntorpor: telinit?12:33
CraHanstrangely enough, gnome won't automount when I add a sg0 line to fstab12:33
CraHanbut does automount when I use sr012:33
dyntorpor: init X would boost you into runlevel X, that's fine, but what's telinit? :)12:33
torportelinit tells init to go to the runlevel you want.12:34
torporso, for single-user 'text-mode', you'd use 'telinit 2' .. i think.  i haven't looked at inittab.12:34
dyntorpor: so what's the difference between `telinit 2` and `init 2`12:34
mrjivetorpor: right, but single user and text mode are not the same.. :)12:34
dyn?12:34
torportelinit 1.12:35
torporwell, on a properly-configured inittab, there is a run-level for 'text-mode only, no GUI'.12:35

dynok, ic12:36
mrjivewhat a bout my nautilus-cd-burner question? anyone knows?12:36
torporon some systems, there is a run-level for 'text only, no GUI'.  in fact, there's 2 or 3 of these kinds of 'sub-run levels'.12:36
torpori forget how its set up.. check inittab.12:36
dynit's distribution-dependent, and inittab describes it, correct12:37
torporwhat i want to know is, why does 'apt-get install linux-sources-2.6' not create /usr/src/linux?  it only seems to put the .bz2 in /usr/src .. am i expected to set up the symlinks and unpack the tarball myself?12:37

mrjivewhen the kernel is compiled in the debian-way, and it becomes a deb package, you install it12:40

mrjivetorpor: don't know if you do not use the debian way12:41
torpori'm only trying to do things the 'ubuntu' way.  12:41
torpori need full linux source and headers, and i wouldn't mind being able to produce my own kernel and modules, either.  is there a package that will set all that up for me, or do i have to install the source by hand, then the headers, etc?12:41
crimsunto build external modules, you generally just need the headers12:42
crimsunlinux-headers-`uname -r`12:42
darkersatanicThere's a package with the headers in it.12:42
darkersatanicAs the man says. :)12:42
darkersatanicIf you want to build kernel+modules packages from a full kernel source, then there's the "kernel-package" package, 12:43

CraHannow cdrecord needs the character device when writing to the burner, but nautilus-cd-burner keeps sending it the block device as a parameter12:45
crimsuntorpor: sure, that's very simple; just use kernel-package.12:45
torporokay, so apt-get install kernel-package will give me a proper /usr/src/linux tree, and all i need to be able to compile modules?  12:45
CraHanis there any way of telling nautilus-cd-burner to send cdrecord the character device and not the block device?12:45

Ubuntu-Linuxlike say: To make the root user usable do the following command...02:14
Elw0od_21bob2,  u are right02:14
Elw0od_21let me try02:14
Treenaksbetances: there's a difference between a user and someone who starts running around screaming when he sees a window he does not recognise.02:15
KamionUbuntu-Linux: again, the FAQ says that the root account is "disabled", not "removed".02:15
Ubuntu-LinuxTreenaks: it the detechtion which doesnt work but if i put the right driver on floppy why wont it work?02:15
Treenaksbetances: a window with a "help" menu, which explains what it is.02:15
Ubuntu-Linuxi said usable Kamion02:15
Ubuntu-Linuxok can i just install off the hdd?02:15
KamionUbuntu-Linux: the header of the page says "How do I use the root account?", and goes on to give a very detailed description of what's happening.02:16
Ubuntu-Linuxthat i dont have the cd dechtion problem02:16
Ubuntu-LinuxKamion: i have no idea what sudo is but i do know alot about other stuff02:16
TreenaksUbuntu-Linux: the FAQ page explains it!02:17
Ubuntu-LinuxTreenaks: yea i am on that page that does :)02:17
betancesTreenaks, Kamion:  I insist this is not necessary for a normal user.  There's already a patch to this bug, according to the bug page.  Their solution:  a keybinding providing the same feature.02:17
Treenaksbetances: which is annoying, because it takes op another set of keys02:17
Kamionbetances: which is less discoverable02:17
Ubuntu-LinuxTreenaks: so what shound i say in the bug report?02:18
_Hiro_if I have a 2.6.7 kernel installed, will that work with linux-restricted-modules-2.6.8-x ?02:18

betancesKamion, Treenaks:  If you really *need* a terminal, you'll find out how to launch it.02:18
bob2_Hiro_: why? just install the ubuntu kernel02:18
bob2disabling it seems pointless to me, too...02:18
TreenaksUbuntu-Linux: that your CD driver <make> <model> on ATA controller of make X, model Y, is not recognised during install02:19
_Hiro_well there are no 2.6.7 restricted-modules02:19
Ubuntu-Linuxok02:19
Treenaksbetances: I don't want to browse through 6 menus to find the xterm launcher.. and the panel is too far away as well02:19
Treenaksbetances: and a key binding is too annoying02:19
bob2_Hiro_: yes, install an Ubuntu *kernel*02:19
betancesTreenaks, Kamion:  I'm not fighting any fights here guys.  I was just here to ask if it is going to be included in Ubuntu.02:19
Treenaksbetances: I _want_ the desktop thing02:19
bob2_Hiro_: for which there is matching modules02:19
betancesTreenaks:  There's a Nautilus extension which provides the exact same thing.  02:19
_Hiro_well that's what's not good02:19
_Hiro_2.6.8 has issues with XFS02:20
jindI have just installed k3b, the cdrecord / cdrdao frontend, but how do I regerenerate the menues so it's listed from there?02:20
Treenaksbetances: then why are you bringing this whole thing up as a problem?02:20

Ubuntu-LinuxThe result of this is that you can not log in after you re-boot. What should happen is that k3bsetup is run as the user and the root password is prompter for so .ICEauthority ownes to the user.
