=== Mestapheles [~Captain@d142-59-231-163.abhsia.telus.net] has joined #ubuntu
ManaguCame from Debian here.  So far, it feels about the same, except some of the rougher corners seem smoother12:36
Ycrosit has it's advantages and disadvantages12:36
YcrosZugwrack, it does12:36
KneelBeforeXorgZugwrack: always has for me12:36
TelepKujila: the gentoo philosophy is that everything is installed from source and hence optimized for your system. Installing is very easy (like in debian), but very time-consuming.12:36
ZugwrackHmmm...ok I installed XCdroast..don't see it12:36
KujilaOh I see12:36
ograKujila: in gentoo you compile everything......its the distri for lonesome people that like to stare at compiler output for nights12:36
Mestapheleshi12:36
Kujilalol12:36
Telepand the benefits are questionable... depends on what you're doing I guess12:36
Managuzugwrack: some packages do, some don't12:36
KujilaI cross my fingers whenever I compile something and hope I have all the dependencies12:37
Ycrosogra, you don't have to, there are binary packages12:37
ograKujila: apt will care for you ;)12:37
Kujilalol12:37
ZugwrackManagu: so is there a script I can use to update the menus? How is this normall done in Gnome12:37
ograYcros: there are ?12:37
MestaphelesI'm trying to create a bootablecopy of the ppc iso.  I'm in XCDroast.  Do I make it sun bootable? or do I use the Torito for ppc arch?  Torito needs some file and that's where I just don't know.12:37
KujilaUbuntu's apt-database seems small right now, though... Is there any way to plop some debian ones on ther so I can get my goodies like MPlayer?12:37
ograbonobo: synaptic Kujila12:38
bonoboKujila: package management in ubuntu see: https://www.ubuntulinux.org/wiki/SynapticHowto12:38

ograbonobo: mplayer Kujila12:38
bonoboKujila: for mplayer in ubuntu see: https://www.ubuntulinux.org/wiki/RestrictedFormats12:38
Ycrosogra, it was never meant to be a source based distribution in the first place12:38
TelepKujila: well dependencies are not a problem in Gentoo, the portage package management system takes care of that, but over-optimization can be a problem sometimes12:38
ograKujila: see the urls of the bonobo bot12:38
Ycrosogra, it just went that way because nobody had really made large progress in that area12:38
Kujilaok12:38
ZugwrackMestapheles: Just copy your existing cd...12:39
KujilaThanks much :)  Ubuntu is sweet12:39
Mestaphelesbut then it will not be bootable on the mac.  I'll need to go into openfirmware and direct it to boot loader12:39
ograKujila: if something doesnt work, come to ask here12:40
KujilaI shall :D  This is great stuff heh12:40
YcrosMestapheles, uhh, you should just be able to copy it12:40
thoreauputicMestapheles: if your original CD was bootable, a clone will be too12:40
KujilaI must go now, though.12:40
KujilaMaybe I'll be back ;)12:40

KujilaThanks again!12:41

FTTPogra:  gui installer should not be a priority as long as the text installer works right02:04
ograscopecrp: use the installer CD i meant02:05
FTTPogra i would want a working text installer, then create the gui one02:05
kgillthoreaputic: "ell"?02:05

FTTPogra its not like it detected the monitor where it was unreadable or anything, it got my refresh rates wrong and the like02:06
ograscopecrp: 5 different ones ??02:06
scopecrpand unfortunately i cannot copy the iso to another drive because im using a non-linux raid card for my other 4 harddrives02:06

ograscopecrp: there is only one for each arch02:06

scopecrpogra aye, a tdk dvdr, 2 sony cdr's, a liteon cdr and a cheap creative cd drive02:07
FTTPogra rather than asking which resolutions the monitor does up to02:07
FTTPmost new distros do that now02:07
ograFTTP: nope, it should just detect.....02:07
kgillbut need to do a  comand with it?02:07

=== gloin_ has a powerful dislike of gnome
Agrajagthen why are you using a gnome-based distro, if you don't mind my asking?08:25
gloin_Agrajag: two reasons: first I like it, and second, KDE is well-supported08:25
gloin_I guess three reasons08:25
gloin_third, most of the KDE distros end in either LLC, SA, or Inc.08:26
gloin_I came to ubuntu from SuSE08:26
AgrajagYou mean Like Canonical, Inc?08:26
AgrajagThe company that makes Ubuntu?08:26

gloin_=P08:26
gloin_seriously08:27
Agrajagoh I'm sorry, Canonical, Ltd.08:27
discordgloin_ why do you dislike g_nome so much?08:27
gloin_ubuntu is a very clean, quick, nice distro, with a very active user community, philosophically more in line with where I'm at than most, and it's highly flexible and VERY fast08:27
gloin_discord: gnome has gone backwards in terms of UI design08:27
discorddebian is pretty nice08:28
gloin_let's start with so-called "dimensional browsing"08:28
discordhmm i think kde is kinda ugly08:28
Agrajagspatial08:28
Skif_I like it.08:28
discordmaybe i was just using keramik08:28
gloin_AKA: win95-style or Mac OS 7.x style "Open each folder in a new window until your desktop is buried under crap"08:28
Agrajagyou can make it a browser instead of spatial with a checkbox08:28
gloin_also08:28
gloin_yeah Agrajag but how lame is that?08:29
Skif_or maybe "when you open a window, it stays where you left it"08:29
Agrajaggloin_: uh08:29
Agrajagwhat?08:29
Skif_*shrug* I liked it in mac os 6-908:29
discordao08:29
discordao08:29
discordoops08:29
Agrajagclicking a checkbox is lame?08:29
Skif_kinda bugged me they dropped it for os x08:29
gloin_Skif_ I wouldn't mind leaving a window where I left it - but it's the >amount< of windows that gets opened08:29
Skif_gloin_: control-click then (I think)08:29
Agrajaghold shift when you open a folder08:29
Agrajagshift08:29
discordgloin:how is kde different than that08:29
Skif_Shift, that's it.08:29
gloin_Skif_ but they replaced it with Column view, which is far superior to anything else I08:29
gloin_I've seen08:29
Skif_gloin_: actually it's worse, because it doesn't give you a full picture of the path08:30
Skif_you just have a slice08:30
=== gloin_ also builds and administers LTSP systems, and relies heavily upon the KDE Kiosk API, which gnome doesn't seem to have anything like
discordhas anyone tried any of those expose clones?08:30
Skif_anyway, it honestly doesn't bother me, because I hate file managers of all kinds08:30
gloin_Skif_: I tend to agree with you there - I'd love to see a filepath bar above the column view08:31
gloin_well, it looks like someone fixed the broken sed package in hoary08:31
UbuntuNewbieA Filepath bar would be VERY helpful08:31
gloin_I'm upgrading without doing anything fancy and it's working fine08:31
linux_mafiadiscord, yep, im using skippy, couldnt get expocity going right08:31
gloin_overall, gnome looks and feels a lot more dated to me than KDE08:32
discorddo you like it and are you using it in kde or gnome?08:32
discordlinux_mafia08:32
gloin_if you have halfway decent hardware, KDE runs snappy, and it feels smoother and less like bubble-gum to me08:32

lil_anthonyquestion: i have 2 network cards in my computer one pci and one isa after getting the isa one to work by disabling pnp on its chip using a dos disk and setting is io to 300h and irq to 10 and setting it to reserved for legacy.  now my pci card does not work but shows up in device manager any reason how to fix this? every time i try to click on networking to activate it nothing happens08:57
gloin_UbuntuNewbie: you shouldn't need to make those devices... I'm really curious as to how your mouse is being seen the way it is08:58

UbuntuNewbielil_anthony - you might pick up an inexpensive PCI 10/100 card. I've seen them as low as $5/$10 - would not want an ISA card in my server if I could avoid it09:00
FTTPdiscord:  the nvidia driver settings change the ubuntu logos?09:01
lil_anthonywell i understand all that09:01
gloin_lil_anthony: I'm thinking you probably have IRQ issues - good old ISA cards pretty much don't know how to configure themselves09:01
lil_anthonybut i had it working09:01
FTTPdiscord:  Now it boots into nvidia ugly screen09:01
gloin_lil_anthony: you may have to configure it from the BIOS09:01

UbuntuNewbielil_anthony, I guess I would ask, with 100BaseT and even gigabit cards so cheap, is this troubleshooting problem worth your time? That being said, do you have to tell the PCI interrupt-controlling thingie (I've forgotten the term) not to use IRQ10 that you gave to the ISA card? That would be a CMOS setting ... I think (it's late here)09:04

fissyhi, i've set up sshd on one ubuntu computer, and i'm trying to use the nautilus sftp client on another ubuntu install to connect and download files... unfortunately nautilus won't connect. I think the reason is that the server takes too long to respond so nautilus times out. what can i do apart from use the command line, which i'd rather not do as i'm trying to show someone what a brilliant gui linux actually has :)02:13

zenwhenwood1, oif your Processor is over 1Ghz, XP is not faster then Ubuntu.03:29
ermowood1, we might be able to tweak your settings a bit.03:29
ermowood1, don't expect miracles though. Your system more than 5 years old.03:29

kensaiwood1, xfce will do miracles to your system03:37
ermowood1, that's perfectly ok to say, but it's not entirely correct. The gui of windows xp employs some tricks that speed drawing substantially. The X Window System is built differently. It can be made to work almost as smoothly, afaik.03:37
PitrNg, could SATA be the problem ?03:37
Ngermo: you're never going to get gnome 2.x to run well on a 350mhz P2 with 192mb of ram03:37
kensaiwood1, thats why I say windows pretends to be fsater03:37
ermoNg, true.03:37
kensaifaster*03:37
Ngermo: to claim that he's wrong because windows is cheating is also highly irrelevant imo ;)03:37
PitrNg, or the 64bittyness of the processor ?03:38
NgPitr: it sounds like it's crashing as X/gdm starts, I doubt that'd be SAATA. Does it display a load of booting text first?03:38

PitrNh, eh, no, before that. about 4-5 seconds after grub decides to load the default image :)03:39
NgPitr: oh. so you don't see the kernel/system boot at all really? that could be sata ;)03:39

Pitrfailsafe does work, dmesg contains the SATA info03:40

Pitrtreeenaks, failsafe eq rescue?03:40
NgPitr: ok, well if it's a livecd then that makes SATA unlikely again. more information ;)03:40

kent_wood1, I have 512 mb of ram and a Amd XP 2x00 something CPU. I have no problem at all.  Less memory should not be used though..04:27
Ngwood1: I'd say get 512MB04:27
wood1Well I will go for 1 GB of RAM then04:28
Ngeven better :)04:28
wood1Well I think investing more in RAM is better than investing between a Pentium and a Celeron04:28

kent_wood1 My experience is that at the time when i choose between diffrent CPUs, it seems like a big deal. But after a year or two.. then the difference that people see between those CPUs is minimal, the amount of ram though makes a big diffrent.04:30
