Xenguyvgedris: I'm definitely interested in giving warty a spin (tried last night, but I think I have a bum CD, so I'll have to re-burn I guess)05:26
Rene_SI made a bum cd my first time trying warty, once i got it fixed i never looked back05:27

DAC1138root password? can u even login as root in ubuntu?05:28
zenwhensudo passwd root05:28

Rene_SAnyone here tried the Muine Music Player ?05:28
zenwhenRene_S, yes... its very album centric.05:29
stuNNedDAC1138, default is set to use `sudo` and not even have a root account.05:29
zenwhenIf you dont have tons of albums dont bother.05:29
Rene_SYeah, i noticed that.05:29
zenwhenI couldnt stand not having a true root account. Im not big on change.05:29
DAC1138got it. now how to i use apt-get? like update the repositories and such?05:29
HrdwrBoBzenwhen: it's still root05:30
Rene_SHehe, i ended up making a root account too05:30
HrdwrBoBzenwhen: sudo -s gives you a shell05:30
zenwhenHrdwrBoB, I am aware of that.05:30
Rene_Sold habits die hard05:30
Pustulozen: thats why I stills tart my editor as 'vi' not 'vim'05:30
HrdwrBoBI'm a fulltime linux admin and my desktop box has no root05:30
nevynDAC1138: You shouldn't do it.05:30
HrdwrBoBthe next servers I implement will have no root05:30
zenwhenIm not saying YOU should change.05:30
zenwhenIm saying I am unwilling to change my habits.05:30
DAC1138nevyn, then how do i install programs?05:30
HrdwrBoBthose that can't change will perish :p05:31
HrdwrBoBDAC1138: sudo apt-get install foo05:31
Pustulohrm.. i wonder how much stuff would break if you changed the name of the root user05:31
HrdwrBoBDAC1138: or just run synaptic from the menu05:31
Pustulothe username that is05:31
HrdwrBoBDAC1138: it will ask you for YOUR password05:31
zenwhenThose who cant chnage will fuction just fine as no other distro disables root.05:31
nevynzenwhen: it's part of being secure by default.05:31
mdztmartin: rm -- <filename>05:31
nevynzenwhen: there's no need for root to be able to login.05:31
DAC1138HrdwrBoB, no synaptic in the gnome menu05:31
zenwhenGood passwords are secure by default.05:31
HrdwrBoBzenwhen: why do you need root?05:31
zenwhenWhy do I not need root?05:32
HrdwrBoBDAC1138: it is in computer-> system configuration05:32
DAC1138HrdwrBoB, og, computer tab. im used to the older gnome05:32

HrdwrBoBand it's a lot harder to mess things up accidentally05:35
HrdwrBoBXenguy: it's there, it's just disabled05:35
DAC1138no, apt-get needs to update the repositories, like in other debian distros, nothings working05:35
zenwhenCompitancy is the best prevention.05:35
DAC1138so far, im sorry guys, but i have to say ubuntu sux (so far)05:35
HrdwrBoBDAC1138: sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list05:35
XenguyHrdwrBoB: ahh, so best of both worlds - if someone wants it, they can just activate it05:35
HrdwrBoBenable universe05:35
HrdwrBoBXenguy: exactly05:35
stuNNedXenguy, `sudo -s` then `passwd` afaik05:36
TsjoklatRuffian: you got a customer.. DAC is dissing ubu05:36
nevynyep.. and competency means not logging onto the machine as the administrator.05:36
nevynthis is true of linux and unix and even windows.05:36
zenwhenWho said I logged into it?05:36
HrdwrBoB windows is somewhat harder though as there's lots of broken user programs05:36
Xenguynevyn: not sure what you mean by that05:36
HrdwrBoBDAC1138: what exactly are you trying to do05:37
nevynzenwhen: why does it need a password then sudo can achieve everything that su can and logs it.05:37
DAC1138Tsjoklat, not really dissing it, im just saying its not the best distro. its too hard to use to be aimed at new linux users05:37
DAC1138HrdwrBoB, tyring to get k3b working so when i download a new linux iso i can install it05:37
DAC1138HrdwrBoB, or apt get really to download k3b05:37
Tsjoklattoo hard?!?!05:37
HrdwrBoBDAC1138: if you have an iso, you can simply right click it05:37
=== Tsjoklat falls over
HrdwrBoBand select 'write to disc'05:37
zenwhennevyn, Im not continuing this conversation.05:38
TsjoklatDAC... what other distros have you tried?05:38
nevynXenguy: what's unclear?05:38
Tsjoklatzenwhen may be the greeter but he has limits :)05:38
DAC1138Tsjoklat, mepis, suse, mandrake, debian, slackware, ubuntu, fedora core 2 and 3, user_linux, knoppix05:38
Tsjoklatand you really think ubu is hard?05:38
DAC1138Tsjoklat, a few more, but i cant remember them off the top of my head.05:39
Tsjoklatonly because of sudo?05:39
DAC1138Tsjoklat, yeah, even compared to slackware05:39
Tsjoklatslackware is the pits no offense05:39
zenwhenI dont think Ubuntu is hard at all.05:39
zenwhenCompared to SLACKWARE?05:39
zenwhenI just moved from slackware.05:39
nevynDAC1138: it is different to someone used to administering linux|unix systems.05:39
DAC1138yeah, slackware is hard, and kinda stupid, but i know ubuntu can be better, but so far, it isnt05:39
Tsjoklatanyone that likes to refer them selves as slackwhores and their computers as pimpboxes should have their heads checked05:39
zenwhenRunning ubuntu is like getting a blowjobs and getting paid for it compared to running Slack.05:40
HrdwrBoBDAC1138: so, what's the problem05:40
Tsjoklatslackware hard.. lol it only updates once a year... haha05:40
HrdwrBoBDAC1138: if you run 'sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list'05:40
DAC1138HrdwrBoB, right now its downloading packages as easily as "apt-get install k3b"05:40
zenwhenSlackware isnt hard either.05:40
HrdwrBoBand enable universe05:40
Pustulopfft.. you think that's hard? i remember installing "MCC" from a dozen floppies on my 38605:40
Pustulothat was hard05:40
HrdwrBoBor if you run synaptic05:40
nevyndebian stable only updates once every 2 or 3 years..05:40
zenwhenBut Ubuntu is most assuredly more ser friendly.05:40
HrdwrBoByou can trivially enable it05:40
DAC1138yeah, and its this whole sudo crap, im not used to it and ive been using linux for 3 years now05:40
nevynDAC1138: sudo is a good thing really.05:41
Tsjoklatnot being  used to sudo crap as you call it DAC doesn't make ubu hard05:41
uhuruit's just sudo.05:41
Xenguynevyn: the meaning of your previous statement is unclear to me -- but nm at this point, as I must get a couple of things done for work at this point ;-)05:41
HrdwrBoBDAC1138: it's not magic05:41
Tsjoklatsudo makes sense, you should use it period05:41
HrdwrBoBsimple prefix stuff you want done as root with sudo05:41
Tsjoklatno matter what distro05:41
DAC1138HrdwrBoB, its not easy either. then what after i open vi?05:41
hypa7iaDAC1138: you know you can always just right-click on an iso to burn it to disk in nautilus, right?05:41
DAC1138hypa7ia, not really, ive been using kde all this time05:41
nevynXenguy: competent systems administrators do not logon to systems as the superuser.. (particularly for gui sessions)05:41
DAC1138HrdwrBoB, ive uncommented those lines, now what?05:42
PustuloI can't relate to new users.. I've been playing linux far too long I think05:42
HrdwrBoBDAC1138: save05:42
hypa7iaDAC1138: well, you can.05:42
HrdwrBoBDAC1138: quit05:42
uhuruso now you say you don't like gnome?05:42
HrdwrBoBthen run apt-get update05:42
TsjoklatDAC: add behind main: main restricted universe multiverse05:42
HrdwrBoBseriously, if you want to do it on the command line05:42
nevynHrdwrBoB: sudo apt-get update05:42
Xenguynevyn: ahh, yes, of course -- I missed yer meaning the 1st time around05:42
hypa7iaPustulo: doesn't help when the noobs have attitude, either05:42
Tsjoklatmake it so it looks like: main restricted universe multiverse05:42
HrdwrBoBand refuse to use the (easy to use) graphical tools05:42
DAC1138uhuru, well, its not the old gnome i was used to back when mdk 9.1 came out05:42
Tsjoklatfor archives and security05:42
HrdwrBoBthen you are making it hard for YOURSELF05:42
DAC1138uhuru, and i never said i dont like gnome, i dont know where you guys get off thinking i said this05:42
uhuruthen install that one dac.05:42
HrdwrBoBand it isn't infact any reflection on the system at all05:42
DAC1138HrdwrBoB, yeah, uncommenting those lines doesnt change anything05:43
DAC1138HrdwrBoB, aptget still doesnt work05:43
uhuruit's your box - you tell it what to do05:43
Pustulohyp: its not a matter of attitude, I just can't get my head around how ppl can hope to get this stuff easily.. it took me a lot of messing around05:43
Tsjoklatdid you read what I wrote?!?!05:43
Pustulohyp: ppl should expect a learning curve05:43
HrdwrBoBDAC1138: sudo apt-get update05:43
HrdwrBoBDAC1138: run that05:43
DAC1138HrdwrBoB, got it05:43
hypa7iaPustulo: agreed.  i'm still on it, that's fershure05:43
Tsjoklatfine DAC rather ignores me05:43
HrdwrBoBthen sudo apt-get install k3b05:44
DAC1138HrdwrBoB, finally im getting somewhere. not if i can get this xserver installed, ill be set and ubuntu will be ok05:44
Pustulohyp: well I only know what I use, im no guru05:44
DAC1138Tsjoklat, o, what? brb, let me scroll up. sorry05:44
Tsjoklatmake it so the line reads: main restricted universe multiverse ... for archives and security05:44
Tsjoklatthat way you will have access to everything ubu has to offer05:45
DAC1138Tsjoklat, yeah, i read that, ok, brb05:45
hypa7iaPustulo: nor am i by any means :-/05:45
DAC1138holy cow, 75MB of download to get k3b working, lol05:45
HrdwrBoBDAC1138: that's because k3b is kde05:45
HrdwrBoByou need all the kde librariew05:45
Tsjoklatyeah you need kdelibs05:45
Tsjoklatand qt05:45
DAC1138yeah, and it needs all thos ekde libraries and such05:45
nevynand kde isn't in the shiptarket.05:45
HrdwrBoBDAC1138: as I said, if all you want to do is burn an iso, right click it and select write to tisk05:46
DAC1138yeah, but i'd also like to burn other files, and i just stopped k3d because i know theres a better way in gnome :-)05:46
meatwadother than the limited options listed in 'gnome-keybinding-properties', is there a way to create custom keyboard shortcuts?05:46
zenwhenI still need k3b for Video DVD's.05:47
Tsjoklatnautilus burner is pretty good isn't05:47
hypa7iaDAC1138: the other way to do it:  insert a cd.  a window will open.  put files in it.  File->write05:47
hypa7iaTsjoklat: i've been happy with it so far05:47
DAC1138can i specify the write speed?05:47
HrdwrBoBzenwhen: yeah, nautilus is not good for !file !iso stuff05:47
DAC1138i need it to write at a slow speed due to some problem with my drive. its dirty or something05:47
HrdwrBoBand there's no gnome equiv05:47
HrdwrBoBwhich sucks05:47
HrdwrBoBDAC1138: yes you can05:47

|QuaD|i guess i can try gnome06:33
hypa7ia|QuaD|: some yes, some no.  and ubu's feeding all its fixes back into debian06:33
Witigonen|QuaD|, Well, for one, it is the latest version of gnome- that's really, really nice.  One of the main reasons I prefer KDE, the use of my multimedia keys on the keyboard, I just set up with Gnome and it works great.  So that's awesome.  Also, gDesklets is better than superkaramba if you're into that stuff at all.  And, yeah, it just looks amazing.06:34
|QuaD|the thing i hate about gnome is that gtk apps run really nicely under kde but kde apps run horribly under gnome06:34
|QuaD|from my experience06:34
hypa7iaQo-noS: i;ve just been using Inkscape of late06:34
Qo-noShypa7ia: I guess a gtk-based Scribus + a presentation program will make GNOME better. OO's Impress is a little heavy on resources for some's liking. Criawips seems a promising effort though ;)06:35

|QuaD|Witigonen: dependencies06:41
|QuaD|blacknyx: i start with mandrake... i consider putting it back on quite often (though i never do) urpmi is pretty good06:42
hypa7iaWitigonen: yes.  dependencies06:42
|QuaD|Witigonen: i can't find a way to install a bittorrent app because it doesn't believe it has python ncurses installed06:42
Rene_SDependancies arent really the fault of the RPM per se. Its the people who make them that forget to include em :)06:42
blacknyx|QuaD|:  Mandrake was too much like windows for me, SuSe is a fair balance until I can learn to do things better on command line.06:42
WitigonenBut programs like apt-get/urpmi/yast/yum all resolve the dependencies automatically.  (apt-get for RedHat/Fedora systems, that is)06:43
|QuaD|blacknyx: i liked it to switch over06:43
|QuaD|apt-get for suse has horrible repoisitories06:43

Witigonen|QuaD|, of course.06:46
|QuaD|blacknyx: i like bleeding edge06:46
Rene_SDepends on the type of Linux user you want to be06:46
blacknyxI prefer stable, I'm not good enough with linux yet to deal with errors in bleeding edge.06:46
|QuaD|stable is good for a server06:46
Qo-noSmost of these other package management tools that have sprung up in recent years e.g. apt4rpm, yum, swaret, slapt-get, pacman, prt-get drew at least part of their inspiration from Debian's APT. The strength of Debian and hence Debian-related distros like Ubuntu lies with debian's huge pool of packages and repositories and integration of package config in debconf06:46

=== noneus [~noneus@pD950F39F.dip.t-dialin.net] has joined #ubuntu
[lsd] the big thing in making it more user-friendly than debian is the release cycle06:55
|QuaD|i am having a hard time seeing what makes it one step up06:56
[lsd] you can install a stable, supported version that's pretty up-to-date06:56
Rene_SHey I like the 4 year between releases hehe06:56
[lsd] rather than forcing people to run testing or unstable to get recent stuff06:56
Rene_SFreeBSD had 4 years between 4 and 506:56
[lsd] Rene_S: it's great for some things :) perhaps not great for user desktops though06:56
|QuaD|llooking at osdir's screenshots... it looks like ubuntu installs one webbrowser, one email client, one irc, etc ... is that true?06:57
|QuaD|obviously with the option for more later?06:57
[lsd] pretty much06:57
[lsd] the base distribution is kept fairly minimal in terms of application choice06:57
|QuaD|thats good06:57
[lsd] it covers lots of functions, but with only really one app of each type06:57
Rene_SYeah after all it needs to fit on one cd06:57
[lsd] yeah i think it works really well06:57
|QuaD|this might sound like a dumb question, but how long does the install of this take? i wanna plan my time tomorrow :)06:58
Witigonen|QuaD|, shouldn't take more than half an hour.  Fifteen minutes?  Ten?06:58
Rene_SI took me around 30 mins06:58
|QuaD|wow... debian is like twice that06:58
=== CraHan [~CraHan@33-101.244.81.adsl.skynet.be] has joined #ubuntu
[lsd] the installer asks very few questions06:58
blacknyxtook me about 30 minutes, but thats because I was changing partitions.06:58
|QuaD|then xserver setup always takes me 30 minutes06:59
|QuaD|damn dual monitors06:59
Rene_SYoper installs in like 7 and a half mins06:59
[lsd] ah you'll have to do that manually after the install06:59
[lsd] or at least, i did06:59
|QuaD|i always do06:59
WitigonenMandrake's pretty fast, too.  Fedora is slooooow, though.06:59
hypa7iaand i have a gig of ram07:00
[lsd] the installer configured my 4MB ET6000 as my primary head, instead of the 64mb gf4mx sitting next to it :)07:00
Rene_SYeah, I was shocked on how slow a 1 cd install of Fedora core 2 was07:00
[lsd] which made me laugh07:00
=== Witigonen smiles.
|QuaD|suse took a while07:00
Rene_SMepis's installer has become peppier these days as well07:01
|QuaD|i really don't understand the differences between the closely related debian distros07:02
|QuaD|like ubuntu, yoper, mepis07:02
Rene_SCreator's personal tastes07:02
|QuaD|just software package choices?07:02
Rene_SYoper was created for speed07:02
WitigonenStrange, strange things happening with Ubuntu that I think are permissions related.07:02
Rene_SMepis was created for newbies07:02
[lsd] many of the ubuntu guys are debian people ticked off with various aspects of debian07:03
|QuaD|so yoper is faster than ubuntu?07:03
[lsd] or they seem to be at least07:03
Rene_SUbuntu was created for humanity :)07:03
HrdwrBoB|QuaD|: it's not a mattter of speed07:03
=== encry [~nobody@user-11fal8u.dsl.mindspring.com] has joined #ubuntu
HrdwrBoBubuntu is about intgeration07:03
Witigonen1.  My CD-ROM drive is incredibly, incredibly slow.  2.  Same with DVDs.  3. Whenever doing stuff with said CD-ROM drive, system lags a lot.  4. Whenever I print, my printer warms up, but never actually PRINTS anything.07:03
HrdwrBoBstaying up to date, but off the bleeding edge07:03
HrdwrBoBit's about Just Working07:03
mdzWitigonen: 1-3 = DMA not enabled on the drive07:04
Rene_SYoper is one of the fastest Linux's ever, however its short on native apps and programs07:04
Witigonenmdz, excellent.  I'll google on how to check that.07:04
mdzWitigonen: sudo hdparm -d1 /dev/cdrom07:04
Rene_SAnd i think its gonna run out of money as well07:04
=== HrdwrBoB is now known as GoneBoB
Rene_SOne guy living in New Zealand cant front the bill the way its going now07:05
|QuaD|oh well, i think i am going to do the ubuntu thing tomorrow night :)07:05
Rene_SNot everyone has 575 million floating around07:05

hypa7ia<cough>mark shuttleworth</cough>07:05
|QuaD|does he ever come in here?07:06
despany vim specialists here?07:06
mdzRene_S: do they do anything besides build with -march=i686?07:06
Rene_SThere was a series of tests performed by some one and posted on there website, the testing boot up, app speed and some other things07:06

mdz|QuaD|: yes, quite often actually07:06
|QuaD|whats his nick?07:07
Rene_SUnfortunaly the web site is being upgraded so a link isnt gonna help07:07
mdzdesp: it's generally better to just ask your question; if someone can answer, they'll hear07:07
Witigonenmdz, thank you so much.  Ripping is going incredibly well, and I'll test the DVD playback in a minute.07:07
Rene_Sthey strip there builds and then prelink the hell out of everything07:07
mdzWitigonen: unfortunately, there are too many CD-ROM drives out there which don't work properly with DMA enabled, so it is disabled by default07:07
Witigonenmdz, that explains it :)07:08
despmdz: right. well, whenever I try to open an existing file with vim/gvim, it displays both the beginning and the end of the file, which is rather odd to me, a novice. :P07:08
despso, how can I get it do display the file as one contiguous area?07:08
Tsjoklatnano -w07:08
Rene_SYoper is like a Linux from scratch with some linux speed tricks07:08
mdz|QuaD|: sabdfl07:08

despTsjoklat: you're really helpful!07:09
mdzdesp: I've never seen the behaviour you describe07:09
despok, thanks.07:09
despmdz: are there any config files used by vim that could've gone bad?07:10
mdzdesp: there are config files which could have been changed, but if you leave them alone they generally don't spoil ;-)07:10
Tsjoklatdesp: it's a good idea to make a backup dir... and put all the org files in there (copied) so if you do mess up.. you can copy them back07:11

WitigonenI guess installing the right printer might have something to do with it.  I installed the 1750 instead of the 1710.  Heh.07:12

[lsd] you need kernel headers07:19
stephen_i thought they were installed too? how do I check?07:19
[lsd] i think the package you need is linux-headers-
[lsd] not sure exactly07:19
stephen_(i love linux geeks, we're so helpful!)07:19
[lsd] hmm there's a package called linux-kernel-headers07:20
[lsd] i guess that's an alias to whatever the appropriate version is07:20
[lsd] try installing that :)07:20
Rene_SYeah, everything I know about Linux i learned from Google07:20

stephen_i'll try it anyway... hang on a sec...07:23

stephen_i think that is what the script is doing.07:24
geppyWhat is the preferred method of installing J2RE on Ubuntu?07:24
[lsd] i hope you don't have to end up building a kernel, and then building the driver against that :/07:24
[lsd] geppy: there's a FAQ on the website i think07:24
stephen_lsd: apt-get reports latest version of the kernel-headers installed...07:25
[lsd] ah okay07:25

djtanseyI'm having an interesting problem. I just came back from a weekend out (i had my laptop with me). I just got back to my desk. i am getting considerably more quiet sound. the settings in gnome-volume-manager are all the same. guesses? things i can check?01:59

menglefhello ubuntu people, i need some advice02:00
mercurusdjtansey: are both speakers working ? are the hard-set volume controls at the same level ? Try using ALSA mixer to reset things02:00
mercurusmenglef: what's up ?02:00
menglefive made a new machine for graphic/web design. and i need bluefish and scribus02:00
djtanseymercurus: my x40 only has one. and i've tried headphones, external speakers (which can usually get unbearably loud), and just the regular speakers.02:01

menglefyeah im used to debian and xfree problems02:02
mercurusdjtansey: ThinkPad X40 ? (nice :) have you rebooted at all ?02:02
djtanseymenglef: deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu warty main restricted universe multiverse -- put that in (it should be there but commented) then (as root) apt-get update. then apt-get install scribus bluefish02:03
theineHow do I get ``Umlauts'' in GNOME?02:04
theineThey are not properly displayed right now02:04
djtanseymercurus: yeah. when i first plugged it in i didn't have any sound what-so-ever. i assumed there was some resource issue or going to/back from suspend problem or being docked after having been booted (and suspended/unsuspended) without being docked.02:04
theineAlso danish/german/swedish keyboards do not really work02:05

djtanseymercurus: warty. i installed the preview release and have apt-get updated to the latest packages02:08
mercurusdjtansey: hmm ... have you had any ALSA issues in the past ? or esd issues ?02:09
djtanseymercurus: but i haven't added or removed anything except xscorch since i last used it on my speakers at a reasonable level (and it's not awful -- i just have the external speakers turned up ALL THE WAY to play at a reasonable pleasant listening volume)02:09
djtanseymercurus: not really. sound worked out of the box. here's another issue02:10
djtanseymercurus: now sometimes when it switches from song to song it says resource busy. can't open resource.02:10

ryandjtansey: know what kind of chipset it uses?02:28
crimsunwell, at least you're getting sound. That's a good sign.02:28
ryanif its sis it might be the sis7012 audio codec, which uses the intel 810 driver02:29
crimsunthe issues I've seen are no sound, or invalid codec 0.02:29
ryanand the sis7012 audio blows ass in anything other than windows anyway; the mixer is either 0 (off) or 1 through 100 (on)02:29
crimsunfor the former case, you want to disable the modem and the printer port in bios. You also want to blacklist snd-intel8x0m.02:29
crimsunfor the latter case, you want to use "noapic".02:30
ryanmy nforce's realtek audio chip uses the intel 8x0 driver too02:30
obosI kinda forgot my password for nickserv.. is that bad? i registered yesterday on another ip02:30

ryani got the card in another computer, but i also managed to snag the cd02:34
crimsundjtansey: correct.02:34
ryanwhich says musexl on it02:34
crimsundjtansey: append it to the kernel line02:34

ryanthe people i got it from, well, they don't know anything about computers and probably just bought the cheapest thing from radio shack possible ;)02:34
crimsundjtansey: if you don't have those, it's not worth trying that option.02:35

RoBLiNuX_so lets see go to www.grc.com and click on shields up then go down to shields up n see if you have open ports or not04:45
WebMavenRoBLiNuX_, there are plenty of firewalls avalibale, both to run as an end-user systema, and as a firewall for the rest of the nework.04:46
RoBLiNuX_i mean i will be connected via a router anyways in a few days04:46
chibifsRoBLiNuX_ - I wouldn't spend too much time worrying about security at all. Unless you're incredibly paranoid. I've never been damaged even on a completely open system.04:46
geni can't get vlc to install04:46
WebMavenRoBLiNuX_, so, you can take an otherwise underpowered old computer stick an extra $13 network-card in, and you have a corporate firewall for your network.04:46
RoBLiNuX_Well I ran a test and it said I have no open ports they are just closed04:47

WebMavenRoBLiNuX_, here is some advice: Don't run as root. Sometimes desktop internet software (like XChat) can be vulnerable.04:48

LinuxJonesRoBLiNuX, disable all unnecessary services that you don't need, it will help you boottime quite a bit. Check to see if DMA is enabled on your disk as well.06:20
dredgbut yes. if it doesnt get an ipv6 address either from a route advertiser or as assigned manually, ipv6 shouldnt attempt connections anywhere06:21
Matt|RoBLiNuX, don't delete anything vital :)06:21
RoBLiNuXLinuxJones, no problem and how do i get to disable those services?06:21
dredgthe problem is though, if you have v6 loaded and $site has AAAA records, apps that are v6 enabled will attempt to connect to those first06:21
Kamiondredg: yeah, that one's a hassle06:22
dredgso i'm actually of the opinion that if you dont use ipv6, you shouldnt be loading ipv606:22
sjoerddredg: and the get E_NOROUTE immediatly, so there should be no delay06:22
dredgsjoerd: true..06:22
Kamiondredg: the problem comes when you have a broken IPv6 setup, not when you have a usable but unconfigured IPv6 setup06:22

bagpussI'm still trying to persuade gnome-volume-manager to work07:29
bagpussdidn't someone say that a version of warty with KDE the default was forthcoming?07:30

Kamionbagpuss: it won't be something Canonical does07:30
bagpussI'd be far happier to install that for people (mostly because I actually know my way around KDE...gnome I'm mostly groping in the dark)<
