Matt|TrasMontano, I got the error from xcdroast but it worked anyway12:10
Matt|TrasMontano, i believe there is a marginal difference in the speed12:10
topyliTrasMontano: don't let it search, but you should manually tell xcdroast to use /dev/hdc or whatever. otherwise it will search and search for a long time everytime you try to do something12:10
chibifsThe error is meaningless.12:10
TrasMontanoMatt|: look at this, the last news12:10

chibifsYou'll need to grab a library from Hoary, and add the osciation repository to apt, but the packages work fine.02:33
yann_i have xfce4.2 running on my gentoo box... it is really nice and fast, even though the 4.0.6 was a bit quicker..02:33

bur[n] erhaving new kde annoyed people?06:01

strestout1_those are major changes, but welcome changes imho06:01

ionrockI am trying compiling them both into the kernel along with cramfs06:17
TheMusoionrock: Did you use the Ubuntu kernel source?06:17
ionrockTheMuso, no I am using a vanilla kernel06:17
poyayanwell it's just that a vfs error occurs during boot if you have anything except ext3 as your / filesystem06:17
poyayanwell for ubuntu06:17
TheMusoionrock: I think that is part of the problem. I know initrd uses cramfs, but there may be another patch that the Ubuntu devs included that may be the difference.06:18
poyayanso I'm guessing it's something along those lines06:18
ionrockpoyayan, I use reiser with my ubuntu kernel too06:18
TheMusoionrock: How did you create the initrd?06:18
ionrockTheMuso, hopefully it will work this time ;) I am going to try it without the initrd image first also b/c I never used on in the past and never had any trouble06:19
Nafalloionrock: AFAIK vanilla can't use cramfs on initrd without a kernel patch.06:19
TheMusoionrock: Do you know how to build a kernel the Debian/Ubuntu way?06:19

NafalloAlohaWolf: probably by the settings menu ;-)06:39
TheMusopepsi_: Are you calling the pgoram from a script, as that is probably the best way to find out.06:39

klasiphydAlohaWolf, you set the default mail reader in preferred apps?06:40

AlohaWolfPizbit, normally (IE under Mandrake) the way gaim send a message is it opens the mailto: with mozilla, who then sends it over to evolution06:44
yohannesmagneto: when u said u could save clip via the menu, which || what menu u referring to?06:44
yohannesmagneto: the video option list some like X11, xv. what are they?06:45
magnetoyohannes: with the show controls feature you can stop play and save and i think there was an options field too06:45
yohannesmagneto: i am kinda blur here. what show control u r referring to?06:46
magneto-vo= xv, x11 there are more - if u look in mplayer preferences under video you can see your choices - that just overrides the default which is probably xv06:46
Pizbit'mplayer -vo help' I believe06:47
=== Pizbit notes he should have reda more up.
AlohaWolfPizbit, I did that actually I set it as the default06:47

bintruegreetings, I'm having a problem with my X display. I've never come across it on any other distro and its a little hard to explain. I get a Bleeding of colors almost. For Example there is a light black bar across the screen at the Ubuntu logon.07:43
jason_what drivers are you using?07:43
bintrueI believe the Nvidia one, but I had the same problem during install as well07:44
mercurusbintrue, of which resolution and refresh rates is your monitor capable ? and what resolution and refresh rates are using ?07:44
bintrueI went in and changed the refresh rates in my XF86config-4 but that didn't improve it07:45
jason_it could also be your card overheating07:45
jason_is it overclocked?07:45
bintrueits a viper 770 not overclocked :)07:45

mercurusand if you feel so inclined, re-seat the card too ...07:47

mercurusor restore the old XF86Config and try and setup some conservative refresh rates07:47

visormercurus: in windows there is something like "Alt + code" that gives you special characters and a friend of mine asked me, i live in Mexico, he does too, but my keyboards are spanish but his does not, so... i read you have to change keyboard layout to us_intl08:00
mercurusklasiphyd, use apt-cache to search for "ati" or "glx" and you can pinpoint the name of the package :)08:00

LucyHi, I tried logging in Ubuntu this morning but it doesn't accept my password anymore. I made sure I used the rigth one. I'm now using Knoppix to come in here, and my data is still on the harddrive, even though my config for Knoppix has been corrupted.

pogikBentley you know how to hide gaim fully into system-tray (or how is it called in gnome - nearby clock)06:03
yoi install java 1.5.006:03
ivarquestion- I've installed mozilla-thunderbird using06:03
Bentleypogik - yes, it's a gaim plugin06:03
ivar'apt-get install' , but it doesn't appear on my path06:03
yoi add into /etc/profiles the PATH of java , but when i type $PATH into console , don't show java PATH06:04
raphapogik: There's a GAIM plugin for it. But each time you start it, the buddy list will be shown. I think I'll write a patch for that, but it may take a couple of days06:04
pogikBentley which one? allready in basic gaim or somewhere on the net?06:04
Bentleyit's in basic gnome - "system tray icon".  I'd really love it if evolution could do the same thing06:04

yohow to add java PATH ?06:06
yoi add into /etc/profiles the PATH of java , but when i type $PATH into console , don't show java PATH06:06
