GammaRayat the end of the install it gave me a command to "revisist" the installer.. what might that have been?03:58
mercurusand /etc/passwd ?03:58
shad0w913can anyone help me?03:58
SewdynNot sure if I cleaned the hash from /etc/passwd.  Could that've been the problem?03:58
mercurusSewdyn: ok, so you've replaced root's hash with a "*" in /etc/shadow ?03:59
SewdynNo.03:59
SewdynI just cleared it and saved it.03:59
shad0w913fuck03:59
shad0w913of course03:59
PizbitGammaRay: Sounds like a typo for "revisit" which I assume would mean in case you want to change something you'd done wrong etc etc03:59
shad0w913i have the only model of the compaqs where the acpi doesn't work03:59
shad0w913grrrrr03:59
GammaRayPizbit: correct03:59
mercurusSewdyn: replace root's hash with a "*" in /etc/shadow .03:59
shad0w913well possibly03:59
shad0w913does the whole 1800 series not work with acpi?03:59
GammaRayPizbit: one the first one.. I have not actually done anythjing wrong but I am exploring04:00
SewdynSo set it as  root:*:12724:0:99999:7:: ?04:00
mercurusyes04:00
SewdynAnd would I need to set anything else in passwd ?04:01

TychePizbit: Thank You.04:05
PizbitWow, that link is still 1 per 1000 lines in here:)04:05
shad0w913:(04:05
mercurusSewdyn: as I said, it'll prompt for your USER's password - not root's non-existent password04:05
SewdynOkay.  And this is product of root's password being default as  root:*:12724:0:99999:7:: ?04:07
shad0w913ok, lets try a different question: what if I went in to grub, turned off acpi, turned on APM (which is already installed), and then rebooted. Would that make the battery meter work?04:07
mercurusSewdyn: no, it is the default.04:07
Agabushectorvs: i will :D04:07
mercurusshad0w913: worth a shot04:07
wimsit's your users password04:07
SewdynOkay.  And do you happen to know what I'd need to fix up if I had botched the passwd file too ?04:07
Pizbitshad0w913: Give it a go, can't hurt eh?04:07
shad0w913how do I make sure that the APM module is loaded, doesn't it have to be in some directory somewere?04:07
Pizbitshad0w913: Put it into /etc/modules04:07
linux_galoreshad0w913: if its a intel based laptop I usually find having acpi on is a positive move also make sure the acpid daemon is active04:07
mercurusSewdyn: if you botched passwd, you'll know about it ... you'll probably have to re-install or boot up from the install CD ... you won't be able to login04:08
Pizbitlinux_galore: You didn't see the bit where he said his laptop doesn't work with acpi04:08
shad0w913well according to the docks and the forums, ACPI doesn't work with 1800 series compaqs :(04:08
shad0w913*docs04:08
mercuruseg. if you removed root's entry, you can't sudo as root ... because uid 0 won't resolve correctly04:08
shad0w913oops :p04:08
SewdynSo... there's no way to fix that without reinstalling?04:08
linux_galorePizbit: so its not an intel based laptop then ??04:08
wimswithout root you got a big problem04:08
Pizbitlinux_galore: No idea04:08
shad0w913it's intel based, pentium III04:08
mercurusSewdyn: yes, boot up with the install CD and repair /etc/passwd manuall04:09
shad0w913600mhz, I think04:09
shad0w913maybe more04:09
SewdynAnd repairing /etc/passwd manually would consist of ... typing out new hashes for it?04:09
shad0w913how do i check to see if acpi is on?04:09
mercurusshadow: it is x86 which is what is important ;)04:09
mercurusSewdyn: there won't be any hashes in /etc/passwd04:09
linux_galoreshad0w913: yeah you need acpi and the acpid daemon running with that unit04:09
mercurusthere will be basic information, the fields are shown in man /etc/passwd04:09
mercuruseg. root:x:0:0:root:/root:/bin/bash04:10

Agabusubuntu looks so much nicer than mandrake :D05:24
Pizbitbur[n] er: He's not, he's changing it to totem-xine05:24

WWbob2: Just curious about that ubunut-desktop thing... what are the chances that the packages on which ubuntu-desktop depends will change in warty?05:26
bob2desp: I don't believe synaptic can do that.  deboprhan can, and if you use aptitude it happens automatically.05:27

gloin_well, if any devs are listening, aside from the annoyances of moving to gnome (which really does feel like it's about 10 years behind KDE), nice distro!  Very well executed!  Keep up the good work.  I appreciate seeing the posts on bugtraq as well - lets me know the dev team is interested in keeping up with things.06:25
bob2encryptio: there's a bug in hal (or pmount?) in warty where it won't mount ntfs partitions, maybe it affects hfs+ too06:25
bob2hahah 10 years behind.06:25
gloin_heh06:26
gloin_well06:26

encryptiobob2: well, it doesn't matter, because it's gone...06:30
shank_bob2: not the cd itself06:30
gloin_ahh06:30
jdubshank_: there are no packages missing on the cd.06:30
bob2shank_: the cd has worked for literally tens of thousands of other people, it's extremely unlikely to be a bug in ubuntu.06:30
shank_jdub: um, i'm talking about jigdo06:30
gloin_well, like I said, the Gnome default is only an annoyance06:30
gloin_I'm impressed with the distro overall06:31
encryptiowhat's a "bad superblock"?06:31
shank_bob2: ok, i'll check the md5sum on the actual cd06:31

weaselloWell, all the other veresions of linux have asked. Ubuntu doesn't? Good! :)09:26

rublindmercurus: you got that link, right?09:27
bob2ubuntu doesn't include the binary-only non-free one by default09:27

rublindbob2: did you see it?10:18
KiBiCan we use Debian mirror for Ubuntu?10:18
danielsKiBi: ... what?10:18
KiBiI guess ubuntu packages can have been modified10:19
bob2KiBi: please don't mix ubuntu and debian packages10:19
bob2rublind: you definitely want /dev/hda110:19
KiBithat's what I was thinking10:19
rublindmount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda1,10:19
rublind       or too many mounted file systems10:19
bob2that's a different matter10:20
rublinda fixable matter?10:20
bob2what command line are you using to mount it?10:20
KiBia friend of mine said it should be possible to use debian mirrors instead of ubuntu mirrors10:20
rublinda bash terminal...10:20
rublindOr do you mean what command?10:20
PizbitKiBi: It is, but it's high unadvisable10:20
bob2rublind: yes10:20
bob2KiBi: it's possible, but it will break and no one will be able to help you10:20

Pizbitweasello: You can remove all the formatting bars, buddy icons, etc10:25
Billoxok, sorry for the delay to those of you who responded to my earlier request. Ubuntu is giving me options for resolutions 1024x768 and below from the gui "Screen Resolution" applicaition. My XF86 config file  defines the maximum resolution as 1600x1200 but I dont get the option above 1024x768 in the GUI. I'm running an intel 740 card and a 21" screen10:25
KiBiI'm not sure...10:25
rublindKiBi: what do you mean?10:25
KiBiA example :10:25
KiBi/dev/sda1       /mnt/cle        vfat    rw,noauto,user,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 010:25
PizbitBillox: Is that 1600x1200 in the right colour depth?10:25
BilloxIve googled around and seen a couple of people mention the same issue but no clies10:25
PizbitBillox: Also, is the horiz/vert syncs correct?10:26
ElwoodBillox, when you run xcfg you can select the modes10:26
=== corbob [~corbob@d207-81-63-141.bchsia.telus.net] has joined #ubuntu
Billoxyes, in all colour depths10:26
jdubBillox: note that the gui isn't related at all to the X configuration file10:26
rublindKiBi: what effect does it have?10:26
KiBi(no)auto mean it is (not) mounted automatically at boot10:26
Elwoodright10:26
jdubBillox: the gui controls RANDR, not the X configuration10:26
Billoxok10:26
jdubBillox: the server probably thinks that's all it can do for some reason10:26
Billoxalso I have noticed that X performance is very bad10:27
KiBi``user'' (allow a user to mount)10:27
Billoxas if its using a generic driver10:27
KiBi(man fstab)10:27
Billoxalthough the i740 card is correctly detected10:27
jdubBillox: type xrandr at a terminal10:27
danielsedit /etc/X11/XF86Config-4, and remove the HorizSync and VertRefresh lines10:27

eimThe default ppc kernel won't support the internal speaker on iBooks. The kernel has to be patched and recompiled.12:18

nevynGcc: if you don't know what the f!@# you're doing why are you building a kernel?12:20
Gccis it easy12:20
Matt|Gcc, yes12:20
Gccive never before used initrd thats why12:21
Matt|Gcc, but let's make this clear: the only reason to build a kernel is to learn how to do it, it is not actually necessary12:21
nevyninitrd is not nessicary even on ubuntu if your kernel is correctly configured.12:21
GccMatt|: nope ive been building kernels from 2.4.x kernels12:21
PizbitGcc: 2.6 kernels are built differently to 2.612:22
Pizbiter, 2.412:22
Matt|Gcc, the command is "mkinitrd /boot/name_your_initrd 2.6.8.1", substitute the number of your kernel12:22
GccPizbit: 2.6 too12:22
Matt|Gcc, also have a read of the manual for mkinitrd12:22
eimbob2: I need the internal speaker mostly for irssi.12:22

bob2Matt|: you can send a patch, I guess04:21
[Mirak] Matt|, id ont believe that they all get added......have to do it manually04:22
bob2not sure if it will be accepted or not04:22
matt__does Ubuntu come with a compiler? I can't find cc, gcc, or anything...04:22
Matt|bob2, i am not experienced with debian so can't make a patch04:22

kalle_matt, apt-get install gcc04:22
bob2matt__: install build-essential04:22
matt__ah, thx both04:22
Matt|[Mirak] , yes that is true, but i think that the aim is to have most packages added to the menu automatically: they just don't get round to doing them all: there are too many!04:22

Matt|bob2, but if people install packages which are outside the base system, do you think that they should join the menu automatically?04:24
Matt|kalle_, <bob2> use mac-fdisk to delete hda504:24
