phoen1xstvn: hmmm master and pcm both up high - master M 3d contr line and mic are all MM12:24
michel_v`by the way, I'm unfamiliar with debian-based systems, should I install linux-686 or linux-image-686?12:24
stvnphoen1x: that's ok12:25
michel_v`Eno_: it's not there. try whiprush's blog, I think he's the one who blogged about it12:25
GotD0tbern: this should have what oyu need http://wiki.ubuntu.com/BinaryDriverHowto?action=highlight&value=ATI12:25
Kamionmichel_v`: familiarity probably wouldn't help you there; you probably want linux-686, which depends on both linux-image-686 and the matching linux-restricted-modules-* package12:25
ogramichel_v: linux-686 is fine, keeps you uptodate ;-)12:25
Eno_ok12:25
stvnphoen1x: does lsmod | grep snd give you anything?12:25

joolzstvn: very funny. just installed it and still rhythmbox won't play wav's12:26

m00sestvn, my bug is already reported #130112:26
bern`GotD0t: thanks12:26
stvnjoolz: check if beep-media-player can play them12:27
ogramichel_v: ask nvidia to provide specs, so there'll be a linux driver12:27
joolzstvn: ok, i'll try12:27
phoen1xstvn: am i looking for anything specific ?12:27
vegaiah, I got it. One can define the physical size of the monitor in XF86Config, which enables X to calculate the DPI right12:27
vegailet's see if that helps12:27
michel_v`ogra: what I mean is is there a way to make linux-restricted-modules not depend on nvidia stuff, since I don't have any nvidia hardware on this laptop12:27
WWjoolz: Read the first page of the Rhythmbox manual (Help->Contents->Section 1).12:27
stvnphoen1x: it should list the modules related to your soundcard, the first one on the list is enough, if you can paste it here12:28
joolzstvn: yes it can. and so can aplay (as it could before)12:28
joolzbut what could be wrong with rhytmbox?12:28
phoen1xhere you go -> snd_ens1371            23012  312:28
michel_v`ok, started apt getting linux-686 -- if I'm lucky it'll be installed in an hour12:28
michel_v`(slooooooooooow hdd)12:28
stvnphoen1x: so it's a soundblaster, right?12:29
phoen1xstvn: yes12:29
michel_v`joolz: the thing that could be wrong would be a gstreamer plugin12:29
stvnphoen1x: stupid question, but did you check if the speakers are connected properly ;)12:29

LinuxJonesstonyuk, install gxine or mplayer01:29
WWstonyuk: The same thing started happening to me a few days ago.01:29
phoen1xstvn: yup - very odd - it cant be that the other players use xmms, as xmms is not part of the distro, but added later?01:29
letheusHmmm...dosen?t seem to work01:29
michel_v`it really would be better to run dpkg --configure -a, instead of aptitude, when the second part of the install got cut off (power failure, other causes)01:29
GotD0tstvn: well its safe to assume if xmms works after changing the audio device then they're all doing the same thing01:29
stvnphoen1x: indeed, that's why i didn't think of xmms being wrongly configured, do the other apps work now as well?01:29
michel_v`in aptitude, the user (me) didn't know what to do01:29
WWstonyuk: Try using the command totem-xine dvd:///01:29

TerminXthat doesn't make the smart upgrade button in synaptic have anything to do with aptitude06:01

NiteRidernope..i tried mplayer (to really get the plugin) it says...i can't08:12
sabmocthx ppl08:13
bob2NiteRider: no, you mean to say that ubuntu doesn't support mplayer, which is true08:13
rancorassabmoc: did it work?08:13
bob2NiteRider: you can certainly install it, if you tell apt where to get it from.  read  that wiki page.08:13

Poyayanoh how do I not load the ext modules?08:15
droogzhey i think i found how to fix ati+nforce+2.6.x kernal08:15
droogz It easy to remove this Oops.08:15
droogzTry edit firegl_public.c, find function _ke_amd_adv_spec_cache_feature .... In this function, comment all what is in her body and write only one line: "return 0". This is safe, because this function is used only on kernel < 2.4.18.08:15
droogzThan recompile driver fglrx.08:15
droogzThis helps me boot in GUI with 3Dacceleration on kernel 2.6, no Oops no errors.08:15
droogzI hope, that I help you.08:15

Lathiati do09:16
Lathiati love it09:16
ficusplanetI love it, too.  In combonation with GNOME keyring it means that I only have one password to remember in day-to-day use.09:16
dasmiBetter be a secure password then.09:16
Mr_Smileywhat is GNOME keyring?09:17

Mr_Smileyah ok 09:18
Mr_Smileythanks09:18

ajyou can give people limited root access09:21
burnboyeh..not really beneficial when it's a single user machine i guess09:21
Lathiatburnboy: theres a numebr of benefits, firstof you only have to type the root password in once every so often, second it reduces the vulerablility of someone remotely brute forcing passwords because they need to know your username and your password and get a shell to run sudo, among other things09:22
Lathiatits also used alot for just like gksudo <admin util> from the menus09:23

Lathiatlinux_galore: The problem is, for the video card, we don't know how to instruct it to turn itself off.11:00
Lathiatas far as i understand it anyway11:00
bob2Lathiat: yes.11:00

Lathiatthere are probably easier ways than that on macosx11:01
Lathiatgiven the kernel is open source11:01
Lathiatyou can probably sniff the pci in kernel or something11:01
Lathiatbut still, its far from trivial11:01
bob2no it's not11:01
Lathiatbob2: what isnt?11:01
linux_galoreDarwin kernel is open source bet Apple has made the driver binary only11:02
Lathiatlinux_galore: i know that11:02
bob2Lathiat: apple didn't make the driver11:02
Lathiatbut i was saying you could *probably* sniff stuff at the pci level in the kernel (assuming that part is open source)11:02
bob2linux_galore: ^11:02
linux_galorethere are some excellent de-compilers now out 11:02
Lathiatheh11:03
bob2what is the point of that, anyway?11:03
bob2we have a linux driver for mips, reverse engineer that11:03
Lathiatdude, people who know alot more than any of us have looked at this i assure you :P11:03
bob2it'll be a bazillion times easier11:03
Lathiatyeh11:03
Lathiatit would be11:03
Lathiattho for suspend-to-ram, not as11:03
Lathiatbut wireless is the big killer11:03
linux_galoreput it this way if it has a bus you can log what its sending11:03
bob2linux_galore: of course, but imagiune how hard it is to take ten megabits of data per second and figure out whate each bit does11:04
Lathiati was trying to figure out how to say that, that works well :)11:04
linux_galorebob2: you can isolate the noise from what is actually the off signal process by just repeating the off cycle11:05

Lathiatlinux_galore: it does just not by default11:08
jc-dentonpeople are paid to work on it?11:09

Lathiatlinux_galore: apt found it all for me :)11:10
bob2ctalkep: just ask your question.11:10
ctalkepnow11:10
Lathiatlinux_galore: hrmm if you us scribus, maybe you can tell em an easy way to take 200 photos and lay them out with the filename underneath for printing (so needs to goto CMYK etc, tho the conversion can be done later)11:10
linux_galoreLathiat: when is ubuntu going to drop XFree8611:10
Lathiatbasically 200 people, and needs their name underneath11:10
ctalkepi ran the installer by default so it would not find my dvd. then i ran it with the noapis option11:11
ctalkepit did work this way11:11
Lathiatlinux_galore: i beleive x.org will be used in the next release (hoary)11:11
jc-dentonso its totally different then debian, exepted that it uses apt and the deb installer?11:11
bob2ctalkep: noapic?11:11
paulproteuslinux_galore: Next release, right.11:11
paulproteusjc-denton: Not quite.11:11
Lathiatctalkep: no, the installer is based on the debian sarge installer11:11
jc-dentonis there a life cd so i can try that/11:11
linux_galoreLathiat: what ver of Scribus are you using the new versions handle images allot better11:11
ctalkepyet it does not see my win partitions11:11
paulproteusThis is covered somewhere, 'cause I've read it.  Let me see...11:11
bob2jc-denton: no, it's based on sid from june, with gnome2.8 added.11:11
Lathiatjc-denton: there is a live cd11:11
ctalkeptwo of which are ntfs11:11
jc-dentonah11:11
paulproteusjc-denton: See #ubuntu-devel for most recent live CD URL.11:11
bob2ctalkep: "does not see"? the installer doesn't?11:11
ctalkephow do i fix that?11:11
ctalkepnope11:11
linux_galoreLathiat: I downloaded scribus and compiled it11:12
bob2ctalkep: are you talking about the installer or not?11:12
jc-dentonso its as stable as sid?11:12
ctalkepthe installedubuntu 11:12
linux_galoreLathiat: apt-get version was too old11:12
ctalkepthe installermust have seen it 11:12
bob2jc-denton: yes, a company is releasing random crap11:12
ctalkepfor it added the win boot partition to the grub11:12
bob2jc-denton: no, the point of it is that it's sid, stabilised every six months11:12
cenerentolaif i want to make a launch-link on the desktop what kind of command should i use to launch.. say /usr/bin/lotfsex11:12
bob2jc-denton: it's intended to be as stable as debian stable but released far more often11:12
ctalkepyet now i cannot access them from ubuntu11:13
Lathiatlinux_galore: ah ok11:13
bob2ctalkep: so what is your problem? that you can't boot windows or that you can't mount windows drives?11:13
Lathiatlinux_galore: whats the cvs root for scribus11:13
paulproteusctalkep: He can't, and wants to, mount.11:13
ctalkepi boot win just fine11:13
linux_galoreScribus 1.2 features new print previewer which has the ability to render CMYK separations on screen,11:14
ctalkepi just need to access my win partitions from inside ubuntu11:14
bob2ctalkep: so the problem is you can't mount them?11:14
bob2ctalkep: ok11:14
ctalkepyep11:14

umarmungericsp, try running 'sudo /etc/init.d/ntpdate start' from a terminal03:00
ericspumarmung, that synchronized my clock03:01
ctalkepLathiat, how come everytime i login as a user/non-root/ my desktop resolution is 1024x768 although i have set it to be 1280x102403:01
Keybukericsp: yes.03:01
ctalkepLathiat, it is kind of stupid setting it all over again03:01
Lathiatctalkep: so it works as root just not as non-root user?03:02
ctalkepLathiat, yes03:02
ericspso do I have to add this line to some file in order to perform this action every startup?03:02
ctalkepLathiat, my root account remembers everything03:02
Lathiatctalkep: thats *odd*03:02
Lathiatctalkep: cus the resoloutions already set03:03
Lathiatwhen you login with gdm03:03
ctalkepLathiat, oh 03:03
Keybukericsp: no, ntpdate to sync your clock is done at startup and ntp is started to keep your clock in sync03:03
ctalkepLathiat, ok, but why i cannot set my window controls,  i mean the icons, you know, "back" "up" and stuff? again it is ok within the rot account, and here they just would not work03:04
