CraigoryHello all.  I've been a Debian Sid user for some time now, and I wanted to try the Ubuntu Live CD.  Unfortunately, my machine crashes when booting from the CD.  No live CD (Knoppix, Gnoppix, etc) has ever booted my machine into X without a crash.  Any ideas?12:58

=== mirak goes to look thru synaptic for the apps
jdubCraigory: stuff can be fixed in universe if it's just build issues in the way01:46
weswh-it works when connected directly.01:47
weswh-so, there is a kvm driver/correction of some sort?01:48
CraigoryAlso, I want to migrate unstable to ubuntu because installing ubuntu from scratch would be very difficult on my hardware.  No installer has ever "just worked" for me.01:48
lamont_rtolstoy: I'm hiding... :-)01:48
mirakanyone know how to launch beneath-a-steel-sky?01:48
tolstoylamont_r, I was just wondering if you could give me some pointers on how I can help you with sbcl. ;)01:48
lamont_rtolstoy: I can certainly send you the logfile from the build attempt, and the mailing list has the necessary config to (hopefully) reproduce the failure01:49
tolstoylamont_r, for instance, I can download the stuff in "universe" and see if I can compile it.01:49
lamont_rthen we just need a patch for that, and all should be happy01:49
tolstoylamont_r, okay. Well, I don't know what the stuff on the mailing list means, so praps I'll just thrash some more.01:49
lamont_rtolstoy: I'll also see if I can get it to build on hoary, which may work better - dunno what shape sbcl was in on June 2801:50
weswh-it worked fine over the KVM in a previous gentoo install...with gnome, no less. So..what kind of driver/correction do i need to be looking for?01:50
CraigoryThanks all.01:50

tolstoylamont_r, me either. ;)  I'll see if I can find where that error message occurs, if nothing else.  prob needs an additional package installed is what I'm thinking.01:51
[Phaedrus] any luck weswh-?01:51
[Phaedrus] weswh-: it could be a wrong detection by Xserver...01:51
[Phaedrus] there have been times when my microsoft mouse worked better with a logitech driver01:51

[Phaedrus] i wonder if there could be a bot made to pick up questions, and paste from the FAQ02:01
amathisI am about to install something else, and I want to install something that I will enjoy.02:02
ograamathis: the easyest distro currently ;) me thinks02:02
amathisis it a graphicl install? or like slackware.02:02
[Phaedrus] Amathis: the installation procedure says nothing about being on the command line, and doesnt extend more than a few easy steps... i think that speaks for itself02:02
amathis[Phaedrus] , I have no problem with installing from command line02:03
amathisso it has a graphical partioner?02:03
amathisbecause I want to save /home02:03
Kamionamathis: X is in the default installation02:03
[Phaedrus] i'm just saying, its a easy interface02:03
amathisand I have never done that using fdisk.02:03
Kamionamathis: no graphical partitioner, but it's a text-based user interface, not fdisk02:03
amathisI don't wanna lose music and files.02:03
amathisok.02:03
amathisdoes it actually use the debian servers? or just the program02:04
ograamathis: sets up nearly everything automatic...02:04
Kamionamathis: it's neither a graphical installer nor like Slackware. :-)02:04
amathisogra, I don't want it to format /home02:04
Kamionamathis: doesn't use the Debian servers, no02:04
amathisoh.02:04
tolstoylamont, I know you're not there, but whoo-hoo! reproduced your error.02:04
amathisdoes it have a lot of packages?02:04
HWolfugh, If I want to install a theme, I have to select the .tar.tgz file with 'install theme' right?02:04
Kamionamathis: use the "Manual partitioning" option, you can carve up the partitions how you like02:04
amathisbecause one thing I hate about slackware is the lack of packages02:05
Kamionamathis: 2000-odd supported, more unsupported ones in 'universe'02:05

xskoulaxJanneM: does that let you specify the offset or sumpthing?03:32
JanneMnot for this kind of thing, no03:32
weswh-i looked under the config editor..and didnt see anything for x03:32
JanneMxskoulax: it's fully interactive03:33
JanneMyou probably have it already03:33
JanneMit's part of the standard X installation03:33
xskoulaxi might have to look at then when i next do an install on my desktop03:33
weswh-so i have to go to console and sudo edit the file?03:33
JanneMyep03:33
JanneMand you need to know how to edit it03:33
tolstoylamont_r, I posted a patch to the devel list. hope it woiks. ;-)03:33
JanneMnot trivial03:33
JanneMbut it does fix this kind of thing03:33
weswh-so xvidtune is not a graphical tool?03:34
JanneMit is03:34
lamont_rtolstoy: I'll try it and upload if it fixes it.03:34
JanneMweswh-: but to make the change permanent, it needs to go into the config file03:34
JanneMor you'll just run xvidtune every time which is even more work than resetting your monitor every time03:34
weswh-gotcha03:35
tolstoylamont_r, okay. thanks for your help.  this is all pretty new for me, this patch/diff stuff. ;)03:35

Hikaru79But when I tried to compile a java program it said "java: program not found" or something to that effect05:05
tmartinthe res i like 1152x864 doesnt even appear under the video options in gnome05:05
kapputuhmm nothing to do with path settings ?05:05
Burgundaviatmartin: I can't even get screen resolution app to load05:06
tmartinfirst line of installing the gfx driver is "sudoapt-getinstalllinux-686" but i installed the amd64 distro so i tried "sudoapt-getinstalllinux-amd64" and got an error about the administration directory being locked.  whats that mean?05:06
Hikaru79Hmm, there's two directories inside of of /pub/java/JDK-1.4.2/i386 ; one called 'fcs' and one called 'rcl' ... what do these mean? ^ ^;;05:06
kapputuwhy not try going to the java bin dir and type java05:06

andersJust had some serious problems. On startup tmpfs would not mount, so lots of stuff like udev and networking did not work. Got a lot of error messages saying kernel not supporting foo and bar, so I figured something was wrong with linux-image or grub. So I booted with cd, chrooted removed and installed grub and linux-image. Debconf said /dev/fd didn't exist, so linux-image could not be configured. Damn, no kernel. I looked at /dev/fd, is a link to09:39
anderssomething on /proc, and proc was not mounted? Trying to mount proc, /proc is not a directory. rm proc, mkdir proc, mount /proc /proc -t proc, apt-get -f install linux-image-2.6.8.1-3-686. Things seems to work and me very happy. Anybody knows what happened to my proc?09:39

cef_workmust admit that kget is quite feature-ful, but not over the top. ie: you can import and export file lists, tell it how long between list saving, auto-disconnect and auto-shutdown when finished, queue and timer support, and speed/connection limiting.09:41

tmartindoes anyone know how to make emacs color code certain statements in c/c++?  thx11:19
jameshgruberman: the GUI resolution switcher uses the RANDR protocol, so if your X server config is wrong (doesn't include some modes the monitor can do, or the frequecies are wrong), it won't help.11:19
jameshtmartin: M-x font-lock-mode ?11:20
altanisn't there a config file I can edit somewherE?11:20
altanI seem to remember doing it on Gentoo a few times, which directory is it in again?11:20
tmartinlemme try that jamesh11:20
Pizbitaltan: You'll have to edit /etc/X11/XF86Config-411:20
PizbitIt's fairly obvious where to edit.11:20
jameshaltan: the command Mithrandir gave should do what you want.11:20

altanyeah, that's what I want to do11:21
altanI just want to change one setting, I'm afraid I'll break it if I change the wrong part11:21
Pizbitaltan: Nah, open the file and you'll see11:22
grubermanjamesh: k, maybe you can answer this too :) at login I have 1280x768(my monitor can olny do 65hz in that res.) How do I change that to 1024x768?11:22
Dashivathere's a screen rez switcher under computer->system configuration in the menu11:22
jameshgruberman: the resolution control panel should let you change the setting for after login11:22
altanI hope the root password is in the FAQ, because the install didn't ask me for a root password11:22
Pizbitaltan: sudo11:22
jameshgruberman: "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86" should let you change the default mode though.11:23
jamesh(which is used on the login screen)11:23
PizbitYikes11:23
Treenaksaltan: http://wiki.ubuntu.com/RootSudo11:23

DashZzZmatrox powerdesk was it11:30
DashZzZand especially because it's -- <--- this difficult to parse a XF86Config file i can't see why not11:31
altanhmm, the scan rates listed online are the same as in the config file, yet I still don't get 100Hz for 1280x1024. Again, on Windows, I had to either load Philips's own drivers or uncheck "Show only refresh rates that my monitor can show" to get 100Hz11:32
binary_10does anyone know the package name of the xml parser?11:32
altanso how else can I force 100Hz?11:32
DashZzZit could be a graphics card driver11:32
altannah, it's not the driver11:32
DashZzZthen you'd probably have to bump the horizrefresh to something11:33
altanI used 3 different cards with this monitor, they all gave that until I loaded the Philips monitor driver11:33

jesperThanks.. both of you.01:51
BugSTreenaks: can you give me the addresses so i can download the packages before i start the installation01:52
TreenaksBugS: you don't need that, you can use apt01:53
TreenaksBugS: and you can see the URLs in sources.list01:53
BugSTreenaks: i dont have ubuntu installed yet, so i cant see the sources. and i cant use apt cause like i said, i dont have internet at home01:54
delireok i've read a trillion fantastic reviews on ubuntu and have one more question before i install it on he laptop in front of me. i'm a game developer, having developed on debian unstable system for several years. what's the likelihood i'll find important and even obscure libraries and documentation missing from the ubuntu package repositories?01:54
stvndelire: a bit bigger than with debian01:54
delirestvn: are you sure? why?01:54
delirewhat about with multiverse?01:55
TreenaksBugS: archive.ubuntu.com01:55
stvndelire: ah, sorry misunderstood it, it's a bit smaller01:55
delireso you're saying there ar more of less development packages and docs in ubuntu?01:56
stvndelire: debian will have slightly more than ubuntu I think, but if you know what you're doing you can install debian's debs01:56
delireisn't that just a case of dpkg -i01:56
stvndelire: standard stuff the same, obscure stuff less in ubuntu01:56
Treenaksdelire: not more or less, there are.01:56
Treenaksdelire: apt-get install01:56
delireTreenaks: but i'm told that it's unwise to add debian package repo's to ubuntu sources.list01:57
Treenaksdelire: it is01:57
Treenaksdelire: that doesn't mean the brave (or foolish..) won't try01:57
stvndelire: it's unwise, not impossible, so when you know what you're doing it's possible01:58

During install it failed to detect my network card (it's a belkin USB card, plugged in through a PCMCIA<->USB adaptor so this didn't shock me too much). After install GNOME was complaining about not being able to find my hostname, and the network didn't appear to work, so I put a simple "auto lo eth0\n iface eth0 inet dhcp" into /etc/network/interfaces, and "12703:29

LinuxJoneswm_eddie, try commenting out any other lines that you may have in your sources.list file and then try re-loading again.03:30
delirejdub: hmm a shame. useful for compiling a network driver if not autodetected..03:30
stvndelire: it's like debian with main, contrib and non-free03:30
delirestvn: gotcha03:30
jdubdelire: too big, and the goal is that you should not have to rebuild a kernel03:31

wm_eddiecommenting out the first two seemed to make it work.03:31
delirejdub: sure, but how do you get online without the option to compile a module?03:31

jdubdelire: i'm not even sure she understands what a kernel is03:32
azumangahmm.. I think I'll try a reinstall and see if it behaves better this time :)03:32
jdubdelire: if you're in that situation, you probably know how to solve it03:32
danielsdelire: if you can't get online, you'll need to go download the drivers or whatever anyway, so the kernel sources are no benefit03:33
delirejdub: my mother doesn't, but she runs debian. when i go to her house i 'administrator' can compile a module from sources on an obscure site on her machine03:33
danielser yeah, but you can also download kernel sources from archive.ubuntu.com.03:33
jdubdelire: our solution - that module should be in our kernel03:33
danielsmy mum should buy a wireless card, plug it in, and have it work.  i shouldn't have to establish it's an isl3890 and tell her to download the kernel source, plus the source from prism54.org, then ...03:34
azumangaOut of interest, is there some way to load an arbitary module during installation, like in debian?03:34
delirejdub: not true. debian woody provides sources. several times i have needed to compile a network module to be able to get online altogether03:34
zenwhenHaving dual monitors is such a wonderful thing.03:34
danielsdelire: woody's kernel doesn't have nearly as many external modules as ours03:34
smoazumanga: /etc/modules .. just like debian03:34
zenwhenI do my work on one monitor, and my play on the other.03:34
jdubdelire: there is not enough room on our CD, we would have to dump other stuff03:34
danielsdelire: you'll notice we provide modules for most everything.  if you see one you need that's not include, please report it in our bts and we'll consider adding it if we can and it enhances network support.03:34
jdubdelire: our solution to this is to increase hardware support in the kernel03:34

benjaneti cant resize Gaim main window ? any ideas03:35
delirejdub: the solution you propose is excellent by the way. the right path03:35
jdubdelire: dude, if we include the driver in our kernel, they'll have it at install. that's the solution.03:35
danielsdelire: fwiw, adding a compilable kernel would involve *adding* gcc, libc6-dev, probably libncurses5-dev, and the complete working toolchain.  plus the kernel source.03:35
deliredaniels: yeah ncurses is a bit heavy03:36
Treenakswe're not Gentoo03:36
danielsdelire: if someone doesn't have a network connection that doesn't work in install, and they can fix this by downloading and compiling a driver, then we should probably be integrating that in our kernel.03:36
danielsdelire: that's what jdub's saying -- the default kernel should work for everyone out of the box03:36
danielstelling people to recompile their kernel to get network support is total arse03:36

|progenic|in linux, is there any program like download accelerator ?03:37
Treenaks|progenic|: the only real, working "download accelerator" is getting a better connection03:38

cef|progenic|: you mean a download manager? you might look at d4x. I've heard a bit about it, but not actually used it myself03:38
benjanetTreenaks, he maybe means a download manager03:39
deliredaniels: yes should work, and if not.. if it *can be downloaded*. in my mothers very rural situation, no one was nearby with a connection. so i had to compile it for her with carious flags to get it to work. i don't think anyone should have to compile a kernel/module. of course.. it's just an advantage of linux over wintel is that one isn't demanded to pursue the absurd situation of needing to be online to download a network driver..03:39
azumangatreenaks: not true at all03:39
Treenaksazumanga: very true..03:39
azumangaI get much faster downloads using getright than firebird or IE03:39
thisfred|progenic|: you may also want to check out the down-them-all plugin for firefox, it's not an accelerator, but it makes downloading from webpages a lot easier03:39
deliredaniels: luckily the kernel sources were there for use in this extreme situation..03:39
Treenaksazumanga: that, and most "download accelerator" programs are spyware03:39
|progenic|heh ? no, i usually can download 20 kbps but if i use the program like that, that can split into 4 download i can reach 100 kbps03:39
Treenaks|progenic|: then the server has a limit, for a reason03:39
azumangaI was getting 200K/sec from firebird getting the ubuntu ISO, and 700K/sec using getright03:40
Treenaks|progenic|: probably better to respect that reason...03:40
danielsdelire: that's a bug that should be fixed; we should be working on fixing the bug, not making it easier to work around absurd situations such as that.03:40
daniels(at the massive inconvenience of others)03:40
thisfredmost servers now block things like getright and da, which only use multiple connections for the same download03:40

TdC_VgAwhen i try to connect to the AP, it just sits with DHCP looping over and over until it times out, and if i try to specify an IP i get nothing either04:04

krunk-hello04:38
cefnanotech: usually to do with pam, look in /etc/pam.d/04:38
krunk-so, if you install a package in ubuntu does it automagically appear in the start menu? Also are the mime types well set up by default, e.g., click a *.wmv and the media player pops open?04:39
bob2no and probably no04:39
krunk-is there a distro that does so?04:39
jdubkrunk-: if it has a menu item included, it will automatically add it to the menu04:39
crimsunkrunk-: not that I'm aware04:39
jdubthe mime types are set up by default04:39
krunk-ok, conflicting answers hehe04:40
crimsun(I'm answering the distro question)04:40
JanneMit depends on the individual packages04:40
AnnaHi, I thought I can erase files on a CD RW by just selecting and dragging them to the trash. Now it tells me that the files are read-only, how do I clean that CD anyway?04:40
jdubkrunk-: these are gnome features, and i can say yes to both :)04:40
JanneMif it packaged to add menu entry, fix a mime entry and so on, it will04:40
jdubkrunk-: so any distro that ships gnome will do it04:40
bob2krunk-: I'm wrong, jdub knows far more than me04:40
jdubJanneM: it's not package-dependent04:40
nanotechaccording to IBM's roadmap to switching to linux: "  Most Linux distributions install with a password cracker  module activated for password changes. This module will test a password to see if it follows good password practices. If not, a warning will be given that the user is using a bad password. Depending on your configuration, a user may be required to use a secure password before it will be accepted. Root may be warned when a password is04:40
JanneMno?04:40
crimsunoh, if you're referring to GNOME packages, then yes.04:41
jdubif a .desktop file is added to the /usr/share/applications/ dir, the panel menu applet updates itself04:41
bob2jdub: dnotify? ;)04:41
krunk-lets say it's the basics, e.g., I don't care if the default media player is used as long as it plays files automagically. The want to install all the little games packages, but don't kow how to dig for them so they need to be in the menu04:41
jdubbob2: via fam, yeah04:41
TdC_VgAapparently some people have gotten this same card to work, but not me heh04:41

They went weeks without being able to play movies because when they clicked the file nothing happened and they didn't want to bother me04:45
JanneMkrunk-: what do they do when something gets messed up in Windows?04:46
krunk-JanneM: well, that rarely happens if you just use it for things like watching videos, browsing the web, or such. And if it gets very messed up, they reinstall and everything *just works (TM)* again04:46
kensaikrunk-: lol04:47
krunk-but since it doesn't just work and the install is intimidating, well, it's understandable for those not in the know04:47

krunk-kensai: spyware is often binary in nature, such as activeX which will not work in linux04:50
Anna"chmod: too few arguments" . What argument would I use if I want to change writing permission on all files of a CD RW?04:50
kensaiSo I just need to clean my cookies of firefox periodically?04:50
cefkensai: yup. spyware tries to install stuff that only usually runs on windows.. cookies should work on any architecture04:51
krunk-kensai: you can simply tighten up cookie handling and never clean.04:51
babuiand it's difficult to install a resident program in linux04:51
babuieven if you execute some code this code will disappear in the next reboot04:51
JanneMAnna: chmod -R a+rw /path/to/the/CD04:51

krunk-kensai: it's very hard to write spyware for linux. Especially if you use only opensource apps. Afterall everyone is looking at the source and no one like spyware04:53
nanotechanna...i think you'll have to reburn the cd...unless you have some sort of "hot write" ability on it04:53

nanotechw/ the permissions04:54

kensaibecause of spyware bill gates runs mac LOL04:54
JanneMAnna: I think nanotech is right, too; rewritable CD can't really be treated as ordinary file systtem04:54
krunk-kensai: but in theory, if you were foolish enough to install spyware on linux, it would run04:54
JanneMAnna: for changing permissions of individual files, you can do that in the file manager04:55
JanneMAnna: that is for speedy changing of _everything_ at once04:55

cefnanotech: it's always possible, it's just a lot harder and also less likely (linux is less of a target)04:58
krunk-nanotech: it would only be done in the user's home directory04:58
nanotechso the spyware can't be global04:58
nanotechi c04:58
krunk-nanotech: exactly. So IF it happens and you notice it's a simple rm -rf ~/.spyware from being gone04:59

willLinuxjones: the file/dir does not exist in 1st place06:27
kensaiI have already did that06:27
LinuxJoneswill, it is .ICEauthority it is case sensitive are you sure the name is correct06:27

kensaithe lines I added for multiverse will remain there so I just need to apt-get it and kaboom it is done?06:29

wannesions: have you got a spare router ?07:39
=== silbs [~sbsm0084@host217-37-231-28.in-addr.btopenworld.com] has left #ubuntu []
wannesif your box keeps it's connection to the router, but the router loses it's connection to the internet07:39
manuel_bob2: I cannot establish a connection.07:39
ionsno not spare but I do have one I can sacrifice for a short test I guess07:39
wannesthen it's not an ubuntu problem, but a problem with your provider ...07:40
