{Fah-Q}Hikaru79: at the lilo or grub prompt you can specify "kernel-image single" and it'll boot into single user mode12:25
BeanDipHikaru79, edit /etc/inittab12:25

HrdwrBoBHikaru79: Hikaru79 just chmod -x /etc/init.d/gdm12:26
BeanDip{Fah-Q}, inittab controls the default runlevel12:26
HrdwrBoBor rm /etc/rc2.d/S99gdm12:26
{Fah-Q}BeanDip: so what? you can specify the run level at the lilo prompt.12:27
Majestic|LinuxUbuntu uses debian reps?12:27
zenwhenany ubuntu devs around?12:27
{Fah-Q}Hikaru79: you just want to boot into single user mode to change some settings, right? The next time you boot *dm will start as usual unlesss you remove it from the run level12:27
=== Swifty_ [~marius@] has joined #ubuntu
Lathiat{Fah-Q}: No,he asked how to change the runlevels so GDM wasn't started, not for once-off12:28
Lathiatpoor guys probably all confused now :)12:28
{Fah-Q}Lathiat: I wasn't here for that. :) Once you're in single user mode you can just remove the S99xdm script from /etc/rcX.d12:28
Lathiat{Fah-Q}: dont even need to be in single user mode for that :)12:29
Lathiatbut that would be a good solution12:29
BeanDipHikaru79, edit /etc/inittab, choose the default runnlevel you want, and open the corresponding dir /etc/rc(runlevelnumber).d/ and remove any scripts you don't want run in that runlevel (ie. gdm)12:29
Lathiatwon't hold on upgrade, however12:29
Hikaru79Lathiat, I only need to go single-user mode a few times right now12:29
Hikaru79Not overall12:29
LathiatHikaru79: Oh, you should have said that12:29
LathiatHikaru79: not what you said ;012:29
Hikaru79=( Sorry12:29
LathiatHikaru79: in that case, when your computer is starting up12:30
LathiatHikaru79: grub has a 3 second count down, hit escape12:30
BeanDipin the /etc/inittab you can lso set which vertual terms open in which runlevels, set a getty on a serial port, do all sorts of fun shit12:30
LathiatHikaru79: and choose the recovery mode kernel12:30
Hikaru79Is that the same thing?12:30
Hikaru79recovery mode is the same thing as regular but without the gdm?12:30
LathiatHikaru79: That boots you into a root console in single-user-mode12:30
LathiatHikaru79: mostly12:30
LathiatHikaru79: doesnt start everything12:30
Hikaru79I see12:30
Lathiathow about this question12:31
Lathiatwhat are you trying to do?12:31
{Fah-Q}BeanDip: the trouble with changing the run  level is that you then need to verify that all the other services that you want to start, will start12:31
{Fah-Q}other than that, yeah. you're right12:31
Hikaru79Then why not just choose "Failsafe Terminal" from the Session tab when Ubuntu asks you to log in?12:31
scoonWOW.  I LOVE APT.  I LOVE APT.12:31
Hikaru79We all do, scoon =)12:31
LathiatHikaru79: Thats something different12:31
LathiatHikaru79: altho you can probably get a similar effect from it, depending on what your trying to do12:31
scoonwell i just get firefox-1.0 in by setting up my own trivial repository.12:31
{Fah-Q}Hikaru79: you know you can still get to the console even if X is running, rigt?12:32
EdwardOGmmm... emerge and portage12:32
Lathiatscoon: heh, keep in mind firefox-1.0 isnt in ubuntu for a reason (buggy)12:32
scoonso i can have the wonderful stability of ubuntu, but new stuff12:32
DespairLathiat: 1.0RC is in hoary...12:32
scoonLathiat: i used it w/ gentoo and it was fine for me.12:33
{Fah-Q}what version of firefox is un ubuntu?12:33
Hikaru79{Fah-Q}, of course =) I just want to see how fast certain things (like webserver) will run if there's no X server hogging anything12:33

jonojdub: ping12:33
Hikaru79(on that computer)12:33
{Fah-Q}Hikaru79: if X is just running, about the only thing its hogging is some ram. So unless you're swapping, I dont nkow that it'll matter12:33
{Fah-Q}Hikaru79: and you could always top xdm via "/etc/init.d/xdm stop" after the system boots12:34
scoonwell anyway.  it is VERY easy to set up a local repository and then get the deb's from debian12:34
Lathiatscoon: indeed12:34
Hikaru79Won't it slow down things like PHP parsing if I have X running?12:34
Hikaru79Oh, really?12:34
Hikaru79:D Awesome12:34
Lathiatscoon: its also possible to add debian source repos, and make it only get firefox from that repo, but thats a different story :)12:34
LathiatHikaru79: Not really, yes12:34
{Fah-Q}Hikaru79: not unles there's contention for the CPU12:34
HrdwrBoBHikaru79: it will make SFA difference12:34
LathiatHikaru79: if you run /etc/init.d/gdm stop it will close it down12:35

LathiatHikaru79: but honestly, it wont make much of a difference :)12:35
johnnybezakhmm its not working where are logs for this sort of thing kept?12:35
Lathiatscoon: its called package pinning12:35
johnnybezakwould some one be able to have a quick glance at my interfaces, to make sure theres not something dumb that i'm missing?12:35
scoonLathiat: thanks .12:35
Lathiatscoon: similar to you can in debian use testing12:35
Lathiatbut add unstable sources12:35
Lathiatpin all packages to testing12:36
johnnybezakhey guys, for some reason my ppp0 and eth0 are fighting it out for being default (im not sure the right terminology) network interfaces, if i configure the ethernet, it breaks my internet, so i have to type "route del default" "route add default ppp0" can anyone help?12:36
Lathiatand then use apt-get -t unstable to grab a couple things for thing sfrom unstable12:36
Lathiatvery usefull :)12:36
Hikaru79Lathiat, if webserver is the only thing I'm using the comp for, it doesn't hurt either, right? ;)12:36
{Fah-Q}johnnybezak: stop setting eth0 as a default interface then12:36
housetiervery dangerous too12:36
Lathiatjohnnybezak: edit your network interface, remove the gateway12:36
scoonLathiat: i wouldn't suppose that you would want to share a resource or 2 ?12:36
LathiatHikaru79: oh in that case yeh turn it off12:37
{Fah-Q}just set an address and netmask12:37
{Fah-Q}dont specify a gateway.12:37
housetiermixing versions is a pita, even with pinning12:37
Lathiatscoon: yeh, www.google.com :>12:37
Lathiathousetier: it is12:37
Lathiathousetier: depends what your doing12:37
{Fah-Q}Or add the appropriate commands to your ppp post connect script12:37
scoonLathiat: thanks for the tip, master of the obvious.12:37
johnnybezak{Fah-Q}: the problem is that then eth0 doesnt work :(12:37
johnnybezakLathiat: ok i did that12:38
Lathiatscoon: *grin* sorry -- man apt_preferences i think12:38
{Fah-Q}johnnybezak: you just need to add a route for the network, not a default gateway route12:38
johnnybezak{Fah-q}: how hehe?12:38
{Fah-Q}unless you're not adding private ip addresses12:38
scoonLathiat: that's cool.12:38
{Fah-Q}that could cause issues too12:38
scoonlater all.12:38
Lathiatscoon: l8r12:39
johnnybezak{Fah-q}: sorry man i dont understand what youre saying :P12:39
Lathiatjohnnybezak: In your network setup for eth012:39
Lathiatjohnnybezak: what is the address and what is the netmask you have set12:39
Lathiator is it set to automatically configure?12:39
johnnybezakcan i post my interfaces to #flood?12:39
{Fah-Q}you just need a netmask and ip, not a gateway set in the eth0 stanza12:39
Lathiatjohnnybezak: no thats not going to help anything12:40
johnnybezakok so what do you want me to look for12:40
Lathiatjohnnybezak: you can paste your /etc/network/interfaces to me in private, that would be usefull12:40
{Fah-Q}blah. these backups are going to take foreever12:40

Gamble1should I delete and recreate it?01:24
XenguyThis is a 2nd try at this question...01:25
XenguyI'm trying to improve the screen resolution (it is currently defaulted01:25
Xenguyto 61Hz - blechh), so I've edited /etc/X11/XFConfig-4 and increased the values for Horizonta01:25
Xenguyl and Vertical refresh rate (I tried to adjust the 'Screen Resolution' via the GNOME GUI too01:25
Gamble1The wireless connection I created is active for my wired LAN connection01:25
Xenguyl, but it had only 1 value -- 61 -- and would not allow me to change anything).  Is the appr01:25
Xenguyoach I'm taking correct?01:25
bob2Xenguy: your line-wrapping sucks01:25
Xenguybob2: sure does (from less)01:25
bob2Xenguy: dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86, might be easier, if you know what your monitor supports01:26
bob2bah, the new wiki front page sucks01:26
HrdwrBoBXenguy: computer->system preferences-> screen resolution01:26
HrdwrBoBXenguy: this also allows you to change refresh01:27
Xenguybob2: I know the vertical and horizontal refresh, so that's no problem -- but will it achieve a higher MHz than 61 ?01:27
bob2Xenguy: you've found a buf, too, http://wiki.ubuntu.com/XautoconfigurationDebug :-)01:27
HrdwrBoByou  should not need to set your refresh rates01:27
HrdwrBoBin the config01:27
bob2Xenguy: the value you care about is the v refresh rate, which is in Hz01:27
bob261HZ is shit, tho, I'd hope your monitor supports more :-)01:27
shayais it possible to upgrade from debian unstable to warty or hoary?01:28
XenguyHrdwrBoB: I'll see if the situation has changed after editing the file, but originally GNOME said 61 and wouldn't allow me to change it01:28
HrdwrBoBah ok01:28
Xenguybob2: OK01:28
bob2shaya: yes, but it's not supported01:28
Gamble1ok, why is my eth1 connection, which I configured as wireless, actually working as my wired connection?01:28

epodOk, my current major Ubuntu issue is, due to my soundcardc being a POS, it works in ALSA, but the main volume thinks it is the headphone volume.  So fine, I set the audio control on the panel to control my headphone volume.  But if I set my audio keys on the front of my notebook to raise/lower volume in the gnome config, it tries to do it to the master volume control, which has no effect due to ALSA weirdness.  Is there some way to reassign04:01

epodhm that sucks.  Yeah.  It's a specific issue with my notebook model (M675XL) and the only reason audio works (well, doesn't only come out the headphone jack) is that some guy sent ALSA a patch reassigning Headphone out to the internal speakers AND the headphone jack, so they both go at one.. It's a sigmatel card that can reassign output on the fly in software.. it's weird.04:03

magikwhenever i try to use apt-get, it gives an error saying something about "ttf-opensymbol" - how can i fix this?05:03
crackhow do i do that in x?05:03
wasabicrack, pop open a console, and edit /etc/fstab as root.05:03
AgrajagX has nothing to do with it05:03
wasabicrack, and type "man fstab" to read about the file. It's fairly simple.05:03
jdz`crack: try just `mount'ing it first. :)05:04
Agrajagtype is ntfs, options you should use are ro,users05:04
Agrajagor maybe users, i forget05:04
wasabionly use 'user' if you want to05:04
AgrajagI have it set up on my desktop but that burned out its cpu05:04

jdz`good luck!05:05
magikwhenever i try to use apt-get, it gives an error saying something about "ttf-opensymbol" - how can i fix this?05:05

bob2wasabi: why do you doubt it's memory?05:10
wasabibob2, because it would be more random.05:10
_scpis there an equivalent of packages.debian.org for ubuntu yet?05:10
bob2wasabi: you're basing that on one report by him?05:10
bob2_scp: no05:10
bob2 /her05:10
wasabibob2, no, im asking for the entire message.05:10
Agrajagso you need to tell it what partition it is, use "ntfs" as fs type, options should be ro and maybe some others, you can read the mount man page yourself to see the options, and dump should prbably be 0 and pass should be 2.05:11
_scpbob2: I have seen a recommendation for something like it on the wiki, is it being considered?05:11
bob2_scp: yes05:11
bob2it would be handy to have05:11
_scpbob2: Ok, thanks, and I agree05:11
_scpbob2: any ideas on coping with not having it? I am a somewhat new debian user (not new to linux, just to debian) that has only used that to search for packages05:13
bob2_scp: "apt-cache search blah" searches the package description database on your system05:13
bob2_scp: apt-cache show blah, shows the description for blah05:13
bob2_scp: apt-file lets you search for files in packages05:14

wartyxenguy:  Or are they using another existing installer?06:04
Agrajagchange hdc1 to hdc206:04
Xenguywarty: see http://www.ubuntulinux.org/ubuntu/philosophy/document_view for more info06:04
Agrajagand give it a different mount point.06:04
Xenguywarty: I'm not sure on that point06:04
George^Dekawell maybe you have it partitioned, so it will be /dev/hdc2/ -- if it was c we endedup using06:04
crackchange c1 to 2?06:04
cracki changed it to hdc206:05
George^Dekai would just add another line if i was you so you can access that other drive later if you want, if you do that you have to change the winxp part to be something else because they cannot be the same06:05
Agrajagthat's what I said.06:06

GFXstyLERyes i read that it works with that but you have to compile and such and im new to linux so i dont know how do to :D05:21
azeemKamion: is multiverse aimed at potentially including all of Debian's non-free, or just specific packages?05:21
azeem(modulo usual universe rules)05:21
boldiiscoon, because gentoo break my glibc after two years of gentoo, so I thought: time for something new, and now I am here after two years gentoo and four years kde ;)05:22
rasherGFXstyLER: I think the required bits are in ubuntu, just install ndiswrapper-utils and do ndiswrapper -i DRIVER.inf05:22

ironwolfkent: everybody's looking for different things.  I'm glad you're enjoying warty. :)06:02
FTTPironwolf:  it looks good :)06:02
FTTPironwolf:  Warty has no config options in graphical tho for equipment and hardware06:02
FTTPlike with stormix you had the storm administration system (which was also based on debian)06:03
FTTPi miss stormix, that had so much potential06:03
FTTPubuntu reminds me alot of stormix06:03
FTTPbut without the tools for hardware06:03

FTTPazeem:  Yes it works fine...........06:04
FTTPazeem:  On the livecd06:04
FTTPazeem:  So in the old days of debian, it didnt autoconfig the hardware?06:04
FTTPazeem what happens if you get new hardware tho06:04
azeemback in '93?06:04
FTTPazeem during the days of stormix06:05

azeemeh, I know the name06:05
FTTPit was debian based06:05
FTTPazeem:  well even with fedora and suse for example06:05
azeemwhat's your problem specifically?06:06
FTTPazeem:   no problem just some pointers06:06
FTTPazeem are you a ubuntu developer?06:06
azeempointers to what?06:06
boldii>> You must install ncurses-devel in order to use 'make menuconfig' . but there is no ncurses-devel and no ncurses?06:06
azeemboldii: libncurses5-dev06:06
FTTPazeem:  Like there is no setting to change my monitor in ubuntu06:06
azeemFTTP: you can change the resolution via the GNOME preferences06:07
FTTPazeem:  SUSE and Fedora have my monitor in a list06:07
azeemFTTP: why would you change your monitor to something else than it is?06:07
kentcardador, i Have used debian unstable before, and it works most of the time, but time to time it fucks up the system, and thats not fun. And its the same for every unstable system, be it fedora or ubuntu.  Some people might like it, but most people should not.06:07
FTTPazeem:  Right but......... what im saying is i should be able to choose monitor from a list ......... it doesnt configure my monitor right, since i can go to high refresh rates and different resolutions06:07
Kamionfor most hardware we'd prefer to use the hotplug subsystem, which is zero-configuration06:07
azeemFTTP: that's a bug then06:07
Kamion'dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86' to fiddle monitor settings06:07
FTTPkamion are you a developer?06:08
=== mxpxpod is now known as mx|working
danielsFTTP: the problem with monitor lists is that they tend to be woefully incomplete06:08
azeemFTTP: why do you need to talk to developers? The community should be able to help you06:08
danielsFTTP: especially as many people tend to take monitors and oem them, and strip them of all identifying information06:08
danielsFTTP: we weighed up both alternatives and going with autodetection has been the best so far06:08
FTTPazeem well i want people who are working on the os, i guess you all are community :)06:08

KamionFTTP: as it happens yes, but as azeem says I'd hope that's irrelevant06:09
FTTPit kinda is i guess06:09
rashercuriosity is powerful06:09
FTTPkamion:  See i came from the distros which had the lists and its just what im used to06:10
KamionFTTP: note that developers often have very specialised areas of expertise, so unless you know what those are up-front it's often just as good to direct your question to the channel in general06:10
FTTPeven tho when u select the monitor, sometimes its wrong too06:10

xoxoxoso there is NEVER root on ubuntu???06:28

FTTPgfx well always youve used yast with suse right?06:28
xoxoxothat is funny man06:28
boldiiazeem, so anybody could open a root shell and do everything, as my user is the autologin user ...06:28
GFXstyLERyes i used yast06:28
dataw0lfubuntu forcing you to use sudo is helping you learn good habits, bro.06:28
GFXstyLERbut i think its a little slow06:29

xoxoxoboldii, i think same06:29

dataw0lfthree different type of pronouns, that was interesting.06:30
hypa7ialol, i think we need to have something in the /topic about the root pw thing06:30
xoxoxoazeem, you dont get my point. assuming i get out without logging out06:30
FTTPgfx:  With the same feature set i mean06:30
azeemxoxoxo: xscreensaver06:30
FTTPgfx:  not the same yast program06:30
xoxoxothen people can sit at my console and do anyting06:30
rasherxoxoxo: you still need to type your password for sudo06:30
GFXstyLERbut i dont like suse or yast in general06:30
azeemxoxoxo: otherwise, they can compromise your SSH and gnupg keys06:30
Kamionboldii: create a different user for autologin, or else configure /etc/sudoers appropriately for your setup06:30
xoxoxoazeem, if this is way ubuntu works, you dont understand about security at all06:30
FTTPgfx:  see with suse you have to go out of gnome and into yast...... everything should be done from gnome06:30
rasherxoxoxo: also, *don't* leave your computer open06:30
azeemxoxoxo: which isn't much better, no?06:30
FTTPgfx :  I dont like yast either06:31
dataw0lfxoxoxo: if you have a good password and physically secure your box, it shouldn't be a problem.06:31
FTTPgfx:  Im just saying i wish those features were incorporated into gnome and built into the gui too not the same way06:31
xoxoxoi can sometime forget to logout06:31
boldiiKamion, well, I will continue doing it the "su root" way, but thanks.06:31
dataw0lfI use a 12 character password for my normal user.06:31
azeemxoxoxo: and why wouldn't you leave a root shell open?06:31
xoxoxofor one or 2 mins, anybody can fsck up my machine06:31
GFXstyLERmaybe in the next gnome version06:31
Friczyxoxoxo: then edit your sudoers file06:31
Kamionxoxoxo: never leave your machine without logging out or locking your screen; local root compromises are typically much easier than remote access compromises06:31
rasherxoxoxo: the thing is, they *still* need your password to sudo things06:31
azeemxoxoxo: plus, sudo has a timeout06:32
azeemxoxoxo: people will be asked your password again when they try sudo06:32
FTTPit seems like there are so many linux distros and constant development on apps coming from all06:32
FTTPso if its a bug in debian or ubuntu it still gets fixed :)06:32
xoxoxook, rasher, you mean i must provide root password for sudo? which password?06:32
FTTPfor both too06:32
rasherxoxoxo: your own password06:32
azeemxoxoxo: you must provide *your* password06:32
xoxoxomy system now is in default config06:32
azeemxoxoxo: everybody else as well06:32
rasherxoxoxo: do you even know how sudo works?06:32
xoxoxook, sudo passwd root?06:33
azeemxoxoxo: that would be the way to re-enable the root account06:33
GFXstyLERwhat i dont get is why they say linux is only used 5% worldwide altough so many people use it06:33
xoxoxothen it asked the password. what to type in now?06:33
azeemxoxoxo: however, I suggest you try the sudo way for a while06:33
Friczyxoxoxo: for example: sudo bash06:33
FTTPgfx is it a bug when u do logoff it shuts down the computer?06:33

xoxoxochange root password?06:36
azeemjust a minor one06:36

xoxoxorasher, why not?06:36

rasherxoxoxo: you're not supposed to use the root account directly, only through sudo06:37
azeemxoxoxo: however, you are free to do whatever you want06:37
Kamionhe's allowed to if he wants to06:37
FTTPazeem ill see if its there already06:37
rasherOf course06:37
GFXstyLERand why exactly shouldnt i use the root ?06:37
azeemGFXstyLER: you should only use your super-powers when you need them06:38
GFXstyLERnoone except me is using this pc so that wouldnt be the point06:38
azeemhaving root shells open allude to using it for non-admin work06:38
xoxoxohmm... so the default user can use sudo to run any privilege command?06:38
rasherThis is all about a) best practices  b) personal preference06:38
xoxoxois that the default configuration?06:38
FriczyGFXstyLER: dont run any program as root if it is not necessary06:38
rasherxoxoxo: yes, after typing your password06:38
azeemxoxoxo: yes06:38
GFXstyLERi dont use them much but i would like to use root instead of sudo, because i learned it like that06:38
FriczyGFXstyLER: if your program has a remote exploitable hole, then all of your system can be rooted06:38
xoxoxook you genious guys. now how about ubuntu kernel?06:38
FTTPin windows xp dont u also have to put in an admin password?06:39
azeemGFXstyLER: you just use Linux for a week though, right?06:39
Kamionxoxoxo: if you want to see the patches we've applied, 'apt-get source linux-source-' and look in debian/patches/06:39
GFXstyLERi used it for a week now06:39
FTTPwith su........ are u forced to put in an admin password?06:39
FTTPor is there no admin password on default install?06:39
Kamionsu asks for the root password06:39
Kamionthe root password is unset by default06:39
GFXstyLERbut i will keep it ;) no need for windows anymore06:39
xoxoxoKamion, i am getting it06:40
FTTPkamion:  people really should add the root06:40
FriczyI consider changing my opsys from debian to ubuntu. which is better? to dist-upgrade (from sarge) or reinstall from scratch?06:40
KamionFTTP: why?06:40
TreenaksFTTP: no, they should not06:40
azeemGFXstyLER: what I mean is that you should be easily able to change your habits still :)06:40
FTTPkamion:  I remember back with corel linux this was a big debate they did it too06:40
TreenaksFTTP: read http://www.ubuntulinux.org/wiki/RootSudo06:40
FTTPthanks treenaks06:40
KamionFTTP: we made this the default for a reason; people are certainly entitled to change it, but we think the default is appropriate06:40
xoxoxoanyway should i customize the source.list for better speed? i am in Japan now06:40
azeemFTTP: Lindows just had people *be Root* by default06:40
azeemFTTP: that's a huge difference06:40
FTTPazeem :  thats worse :P06:40
xoxoxoshould be better to use the "local" repository?06:40
GFXstyLERazeem yes youre right06:41
Kamionxoxoxo: http://www.ubuntulinux.org/wiki/Archive06:41
FTTPkamion i guess we will see how it plays out :) with windows tho upon install u are asked for an admin password (for xp pro at least)06:41

xoxoxogreat. 2 bad there is no japan mirror06:42
FTTPkamion having no default set to root could be a security risk tho06:42
KamionFTTP: we're not trying to be a copy of Windows; for other commercial comparisons, look to Mac OS X06:42
FTTPkamion how does macos x do it?06:42

FriczyGFXstyLER: if you use only linux then not necessary06:43
xoxoxoKamion, i got source package, but where is debian/patches?06:43
FTTPdaniels what is the upside and downside then ?06:43
cardadorGFXstyLER: only if your linux box is a internet server for windows boxes06:43
GFXstyLERnope it isnt06:43
Kamionxoxoxo: inside the directory that just got unpacked under your current directory06:43
FTTPdaniels: im prolly confused as to the issues involved06:43
xoxoxoKamion, no. there is no such directory06:43
FTTPi know your no windows........06:44
danielsFTTP: upside -- sudo scales better than telling people a root password they're likely to forget anyway, it remembers stuff, it has an audit trail, it's more fine-grained, people don't do stuff like try to log in as root, you have to guess the account name *and* the password, not just the root password of 'superman' or whatever06:44
KamionFTTP: we generally regard Windows to be a crawling security nightmare horror beast and especially avoid borrowing from it where anything to do with user privileges are concerned06:44
Kamionxoxoxo: it'll have unpacked a linux-source- directory06:44
xoxoxoKamion, yes i saw that06:44
danielsFTTP: if we shipped with a wide-open root account, there'd be no point setting user passwords ;)06:44
Kamionxoxoxo: ... so look in there?06:44
FTTPkamion i agree with you06:44
FTTPdaniels sounds fine....... if it works for mac os x then its a concept which works :)06:45
xoxoxoKamion, mainly about driver patching?06:45
FTTPi guess ill fool around with it and see which of the 2 i like better :)06:45
Kamionxoxoxo: mostly, yeah, see debian/changelog too06:46
FTTPi never really used it but i remember people with corel linux were complaining their was no root account06:46

thrift|0__0| : I think that's arguable.  A gentoo user would probably flip out with a million reasons his gnome is better due to that.  I think that ubuntu does *feel* faster though, and that's all I care about there.  Gentoo's main advantage though of portage was the huge amount of apps that were there, and especially the nonfree ones07:34

cardadorbtw, if anyone has a friend that wont change to linux because of counter strike source, tell him he can play on linux07:57
ograthrift: but that still brings no safety net :)07:58
thriftogra: sudo -H then.  I understand you could move somethign important somewhere you shouldn't, but that simply means don't run it as root all the time07:58
thriftogra: When does your filemanager touch the internet.07:58
shingokiinice, you can only edit sudoers file with visudo, which uses vi, and vi is not installed, yay !07:58
ograthrift: if you ever work with uni* it will be the first thing you learn....07:59

thriftogra: I've used unix longer than you garaunteed07:59
Kamionshingokii: visudo uses $VISUAL07:59
ograthrift: k....07:59
Kamionshingokii: also vim is installed by default and provides vi07:59
aaroncukquick easy questiion.. im feelin dizzy.. an matx mb will fit in an atx case07:59
thriftogra: how long have you used linux/unix?07:59
Sandyanybody have any advice?07:59
ograthrift: wnot argue on that07:59
thriftogra: then who knows more about what you learn first on unix?08:00
ograthrift: my first touch with unix i had in 8608:00
shingokiiI think I'll just trust ubuntu and leave it08:00
TycheSandy: Have you tried installing grubconf to help configure your grub?08:00

will_i should not have updated to hoary08:00
ograthrift: didnt last long though ;)08:00
thriftogra: This is becoming silly, you're first touch, and when you were first really using it is very different08:01
shingokiiIs there somewhere to report package weirdness? Like if a package is present which can't install due to missing stuff?08:01
ograthrift:  9208:01
Kamionthrift,ogra: dick-size wars won't help either of you; cut it out :)08:01
SandyTyche: Nope, not managed to install anything, as I access the internet through a usb wireless network, so installing something is tricky08:01
thriftlol true08:01
Kamionshingokii: bugzilla link in the topic08:01
thriftogra: you do have more xp though08:01
|0__0|damn posix08:01
|0__0|why do we even bother dividing EDITOR and VISUAL any more?08:01

TycheSandy: I probably can tell you how I have my conf configured, I also run XP Dual Boot.08:02
shingokiiso uh... I heard it is a recipe for disaster to try to use debian packages with ubuntu?08:02
SandyThat could be handy08:02
|0__0|shingokii: most likely, yes08:02
thriftogra: so config files won't be hurt, but yes no safety net, so only run file manager as root when you NEED to, you could easily do the same damage on the command line as root, and especially if you're not familiar with the command line08:02
|0__0|shingokii: universe and multiverse already contain rebuilds of actual debian packages08:02
will_anyone downgraded from hoary to warty yet?08:02
|0__0|will_: apt doesn't let you downgrade safely08:02
|0__0|best to back up your /home and reinstall08:03

shingokii|0__0|: I needed xmltv-util and libxmltv-perl but they are not in universe or multiverse08:04
will_like me08:04
Gwildor_boldii, change the word WARTY to hoary in your sources.list08:04
ograwill_: are you ?08:04
thriftogra: All I saw was someone come in and ask how to move files as root, if they asked, they don't need to be told about the command line right?08:04
boldii|0__0|, ok, then I leave it. I don t want to break the glibc like in my old gentoo install ...08:04
|0__0|shingokii: if I were you, I'd try building them from the source packages, but even that's kind of iffy08:05

thriftogra: what is more dangerous?  sudo -H nautilus, or sudo bash then crazy commands user doesn't understand08:05
|0__0|thrift: not sudo bash!08:06
|0__0|sudo particular commands08:06
shingokii|0__0|: So should I put in a bug report? Seems pretty dumb to have freevo in the repository when it can't install08:06
will_bash bash08:06
will_sudo /bin/bash08:06
|0__0|shingokii: yeah, I'd definitely file a bug08:06
ograthrift: they are both bad ;)08:06
thrift|0__0| : sudo 20 particular commands in a row?08:06
|0__0|although you'll probaly get a "not supported" response08:06

|0__0|beats sudo bash08:07
will_thats a potential mine field08:07
boldiiGwildor_, can I find a what s new list for hoary anywhere?08:07
shingokiiWhat about the "root terminal" though, is that not what it is for?08:07
ograthrift: you wont change my mind....and drag n drop in more dangerous in my opinion08:07
thriftshingokii: another just as good option08:07
Gwildor_boldii, I don't know where, search the ubuntu site, I guess, or query the ogra|bot08:07
thriftogra: then you are just being stubborn.  Only an idiot would tell someone who didn't understand the command line to run run commands as root08:07
shingokiiYeah I wrecked one of my first linux installs using a file manager as root, not so much because I'm super-dumb as because the file manager was weird08:07
shingokiithis was some time ago before nautilus08:08
will_calm down ppl, we have to get along TOGETHER!!08:08
ograthrift: okay, think what you will...just  lets drop this now....08:08

=== ogra is not responsive enough today :)
will_what firewall would u reccomend for Ubuntu08:10
thriftI'm saying in general that it's easier type a command wrong as a user who doesn't understand the command that will do a large amount of damage, than it is for a user to use somethign they are familiar with as root.  I think that's obvious, and you hurt new users by making them do things they don't understand and don't want to understand.  In the perfect real world a user should never have to touch the command line, so it's just s08:10
thriftilly to me.  That's all from me08:10

thriftogra: It's not in any of my repositories.  Last time I had transet I installed from cvs *shrgs*  under 24 hours08:16
shingokiibut it is a problem with ubuntu I think because ubuntu is missing the required packages08:16
