(GammaRay/#ubuntu) the details.. but they are very similar overall12:45

FTTPgammaray i guess that means like the ubuntu logos and such?02:37
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) wm_eddie: no idea02:37
ermoFTTP, (simple explanation) you can either represent a picture by rows and columns of dots (bitmap) or by describing each component of a picture as an equation. The equations can be scaled, whereas the bitmaps need to be resamled.02:38
ermoresampled.02:38

FTTPerr i mean02:42
FTTPthey have rpms02:42
FTTPalot dont have precompiled debian files02:43
FTTPis it possible to use an rpm on debian?02:43
Gnobodyjust use alien to install rpms02:43
FTTPif all you have is the rpm02:43
socommdrac: that's an estimate it's probably alot less than that since it's only one source file.02:43
Gnobodysudo alien -i nvu.rpm02:43
FTTPgnobody:  They should include alien on default so it works fully02:43
socommFTTP: you can install rpms on ubuntu02:43

FTTPsocomm is alien default?02:43

FTTPgammaray right but some only distribute the rpm02:45
ChibiGood commercial apps are all static linked and have bin installers. :P02:45

dracbut you won't have the dependences02:50
Gnobodyyeah with debian you can pretty much install any linux binary you want02:50
Gnobodyx86 of course02:50
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) that will allow you to install it but that won't fix any depends it needs but you don't have02:50
Gnobodyand ubuntu is debian base02:50
Gnobodyd02:50
FTTPgnobody right but some apps only give rpms02:50
FTTPAlien should not be used to replace important system packages, like sysvinit, shared libraries, or other things that are essential for the functioning of your system. Many of these packages are set up differently by Debian and Red Hat, and packages from the different distributions cannot be used interchangably. In general, if you can't uninstall the package without breaking your system, don't try to replace it with an alien02:50
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) w/a range from rh 6-9 it's probably a static binary02:50
FTTPgammaray i only used that as an example tho02:51
tmartinhey this is off topic but is there a channel on freenode for talking about programming in c++?02:51

FTTPgammaray:  Thought .exe was for windows :P02:54
FTTPgammaray unless ur running wine of course02:54
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) executables is actually the proper term for what people commonly call binaries02:55
stuNNeddoes noapic and nolapic do the same things or do i need both?  system is freezing...02:55
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) the .exe extension is windows only true..02:55
socommFTTP: I was kidding, you can tell gcc to compile a program with whatever name you like, for instance `gcc file.cc -o program.exe'02:55
FTTPgammaray thats what i meant02:55
FTTPsocomm gotcha02:56
FTTPgammaray:  ubuntu/debian needs an easier way to install apps02:56

FTTPchibi:  oh its just apt02:59
eazel7Chibi, what app are you talking about?02:59
FTTPchibi:  Screenshot would still be nice if u can :)02:59
LinuxJoneseazel7, Progeny has ported Anaconda and has been incorporated into their Debian based distro02:59
FTTPchibi:  But im referring to installing commercial apps02:59
FTTPthat are not in the repositories02:59
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) Chibi: well I hope you guys reqwrite the broken vsftpd init.d script as well :-P02:59
eruinthe problem with anaconda debian-wise is that it doesn't support more than two archs02:59
FTTPunless that app can handle those too?02:59
eazel7LinuxJones, I'll see what can I do, I'm really interested02:59
ChibiOohhhhh, Like the firefox and xfce installers? :P03:00
FTTPchibi i never installed xfce or firefox i dunno03:00
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) FTTP: why should it be the distro makers job to cover the asses of adobe?03:00
eruinwho maintains firefox?03:00
cardadorNVU is amazing!03:00
jomohkeis it?03:00
FTTPgammaray:  Whos covering their ass?  its making it easier to use the apps03:00
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) FTTP: a lot of time, ubuntun could not even legally make pacages for these pieces of software03:01
ChibiThey're like installing windows applications, FTTP. With the whole 'choose what parts you want' graphic installer shebang.03:01
FTTPgammaray oh03:01
cardadorjomohke: just tried it now, looks good03:01
FTTPok well if legal issues come into play thats another story03:01
jomohkecardador: The brief comments I've heard of it were that it was fairly incomplete. I haven't tried it, though.03:01
FTTPchibi yeah well maybe adobe will eventually make a better installer :)03:01
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) FTTP: not to mention that they all use different interfaces for installing, it would have to be done on a per software basis, which is a lot of work.03:01
eruinwhy oh why is people.debian.org so slooow03:01
LinuxJoneseazel7, I hope Ubuntu borrows from Progeny, Anaconda is excellent.03:02
eazel7yup03:02
(HrdwrBoB/#ubuntu) eruin: specifically to piss you off03:02
FTTPgammaray then it should be up to the manufacturer03:02
eruinblimey03:02
FTTPgammaray or just make sure for example u can easily install rpms which is the most common standard03:02
eazel7I hope that anaconda uses backends03:02
eazel7so there is no duplicated work betwin rpm and deb versions03:02
FTTPgammaray i guess there is no simple solution between opensource and commercial03:03
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) FTTP: but is is already up to the manufacturer.. every seperate one w/ theie different owners03:03
FTTPto use commercial apps if one so chooses on ubuntu03:03
LinuxJoneseazel7, the source code should be on the Progeny website. i'm pretty sure it's written in gtk-python03:03
eazel7ok03:03
eruineverything redhat is built with gtkpython03:03
FTTPgammaray:  Right but as of now many use .bin and .rpm03:04
FTTPso there has to be a way to use those easily03:04
FTTPgammaray is there a gnome frontend to alien for example?03:04
FTTPthat may be the best solution there03:04
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) FTTP: .bin is easy enough to deal with. ie the nvidia installer should work on ubuntu03:04
Chibihttp://studiochibico.com/ar.jpg03:04
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) FTTP: never used alien03:05
eazel7Anaconda is written in Python and C03:05

FTTPeruin yeah its nice03:09
(jdub/#ubuntu) YokoZar: that's all gnome functionality03:09
YokoZarjdub: Even when I install a package?03:10
FTTPwhat i meant was this tho:  is there a way to easily install .bins kinda like a program which will just run it and install it easily and bring up the right windows for install (even a terminal mode) and stuff?03:10
FTTPfrom that add/remove program interface03:10
FTTPor whatever03:10
FTTPshould be a way where u can do it easily without leaving gnome and going to terminal03:10
FTTPthats what i meant03:10
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) FTTP: a paperclips and glue idea.. have .bin files open in gnmome-terminal03:11
FTTPgammaray:  Can they be already?03:11
FTTPno i mean03:11
eruinwell, if some standarized toolkit that all distributors of .bin files used was in place, that could easily be written03:11

FTTPgammaray:  A program which will easily walk u thru install03:11
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) they are just executables.. ie xterm -e reaplayer.bin03:11
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) FTTP: they would depends on what the .bin did I guess03:12
FTTPgammaray i dunno........03:12
eruinbut since a bin can be all console-based (nvidia) while another (quake3) can be gtk-based, how should the installer logic be?03:12
FTTPwhatever works i guess :)03:12
thoreauputicFTTP: if it's a precompiled binary you can extract it in nautilus, navigate to th edirectory, create a link and off you go : but I agree for new users how to do that isn't intuitive03:12
FTTPeruin good point03:12
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) eruin: open them all in a term03:12
eruinwe're talkinga bout a gui tool here03:13
FTTPthoreauputic yeah right, just a way to automate just what u said03:13
eruinI know full-well how to run a .bin file ;>03:13
FTTPthreauputic just add a feature for that which will do just that :)03:13
FTTPon all .bin files03:13
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) eruin: synaptic does as much03:13
YokoZarjdub: A Debian package should have some common menu creating hints in it, and the menu package will then make a menu out of it for every window manager.  Does this not happen in Ubuntu?03:13
FTTPor something03:13
eruinGammaRay, no.03:13
thoreauputicFTTP: problem is that how binaries install is not standardised03:13

FTTPill try those apps and see03:14
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) eruin: you never noticed the terminal window while software is installing?03:14
FTTPeruin it should be mostly open software, but there are times when u may want to add 1 commerical program03:14
FTTPfor whatever reason03:14
eruinGammaRay, this has nothing to do with apt or debs or ubuntus workings in general for that matter03:15
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) eruin: I know taat full well03:15
(jdub/#ubuntu) YokoZar: we don't display or support the debian menu system03:15
FTTPjdub oh what installer is you right?03:15
nonajmehmm, how can i reconfigure xfree with the standard config?03:15
eruinGammaRay, if synaptic can, say, be used to install both the official nvidia package and quake3 point releases, that's sure news to me03:15
YokoZarjdub: Ahh.  So how do Ubuntu packages add menu items to ubuntu then?03:16
(GammaRay/#ubuntu) eruin: you're missing my point03:16
FTTPjdub u handle software installers too tho or just the 1st time install?03:16
(jdub/#ubuntu) YokoZar: that's all gnome/freedesktop.org menu functionality03:16
(jdub/#ubuntu) FTTP: what?03:16
FTTPjdub i mean that add/remove type program03:16
FTTPthat someone showed me03:16
eruinGammaRay, point is, we're talkinga bout packages that will never show up in any repository usable by synaptic03:16
FTTPjdub u dont handle that right?03:16
stuNNedjdub, if i add kernel line 'noapic' do i need to add 'nolapic' as well?03:16
(jdub/#ubuntu) FTTP: i don't understand what you're asking.03:17
(jdub/#ubuntu) stuNNed: i don't know.03:17
YokoZarjdub: Ahh, so some packages use both the debian menu system and the freedesktop stuff03:17
stuNNedjdub, k thanks mate03:17
eruinmore like some kind of cross-distro standarized installer, ala installshield on windows03:17

humboI've never run debian, so I'm not much help in that respect.12:09
(Lathiat/#ubuntu) tkooda: Because ubuntu provides a much nicer and integreated desktop right out of the box, also includes a 6 monthly release, commercial support and more up to date software than debian.12:09
dabbish1out of the box I just get garbled output12:09
(crimsun/#ubuntu) humbo: ocassional downtime, unforeseen circumstances, so forth12:09
pl0vstkooda, ubuntu is easier to install, has a nicer integrated gnome-desktop by default12:09
tkoodaLathiat, more up to date than, say sarge?12:09
(crimsun/#ubuntu) the development branch is definitely more current than sarge12:10
(crimsun/#ubuntu) stable branch of course is frozen completely12:10
willdefinatly!12:10
tkoodaLathiat/pl0vs, what do you mean a "more intergrated gnome-desktop"?  (how is it more "ingergrated" than, say, a sarge gnome install?)12:10
humbodabbish1: when does this appear? Do you see the text bootup first, or is there no display at all?12:10
(crimsun/#ubuntu) tkooda: the gnome desktop is much more streamlined in ubuntu12:11
willtkooda: were not forcing you....just check it out yourself any you will see :)12:11
(crimsun/#ubuntu) tkooda: the menus are cleaned up and are much less confusing12:11
tkoodawill, I didn't suggest someone was forcing me.  I came to ask what you knew about it.12:11
humboubuntu appears to be built around gnome, it specialises in it.12:11
tkoodahumbo, what do you mean specialises?12:11
tkoodaso it's got newer packages in the stable release, and has a better default gnome config?12:12
willtkooda:yes but no one here will force you i meant, cos were all lovely ubuntu'ers12:12
tkoodadoes ubuntu use any (unmodified) debian packages?12:13
(Lathiat/#ubuntu) tkooda: yes, the universe and multiverse archives are direct from debian12:14
danielstkooda: yes12:14

JuerdSlackman: Yes, but then the labels are wrong. Not a problem for those who touch type, but certainly a problem for everyone else.02:09
TalliesinJuerd, you've a marketing issue there. "Don't give Dutch keyboards to the Dutch" makes no sense. "Upgrade to the *new* Dutch keyboard" will convince them.02:09
Juerdbar1: Dutch and US are both QWERTY, but some non-alphanumerics are in different locations.02:09

SlackmanJuerd, yeh i can type dvorak, its actually faster...but it doesn't work with games02:11
Juerdjoolz: There's also French AZERTY02:11
JuerdSlackman: I don't play computer games.02:11
TalliesinYes, so you need to tell them that the US English keyboards are the new Dutch keyboard. Or better yet submit a new layout to the ICU database which is like the US Keyboard and has 02:11

joolzwhat was that again: "every interface more complicated than a nipple sucks"02:13
TalliesinBizarrely my keyboard has just gone to a US-English layout for no reason (so hould be Ireland-English)02:13
JuerdTalliesin: It actually is one letter. But because iso-8859-* doesn't have them, for an entire generation we have now used "ij".02:13
bar1look it cant be that everyting works allright when i log in because then my password works perfect also the special sings and everything and when i want to open the synaptic or anything else my password fails02:13

Vladimir_ubuntuI'm very sorry, won't do it again ;-)02:21
JuerdTalliesin: I was told that it's very understandable02:21
TalliesinJuerd, I was told that it's tolerated because they figure they can't expect us foreigners to do things right :)02:21
JuerdTalliesin: That's how ij became i j. All it takes is technology not supporting the real thing. Or foreigners. Let's start a revolution there :)02:22
TalliesinI must look into the ij. I was told (by someone who knows a lot on such things) that they were a collation unit but still two letters.02:24
JuerdNo way they're two letters :)02:24
JuerdWell, ij are. The real character isn't.02:25
TalliesinWhat did they derive from?02:25
Juerdy02:25
TalliesinA ha.02:25
Juerd(And the other way around too: some English Ys are originally IJs)02:25
Talliesinthat seems familiar now you say that.02:25
Juerdij is used for what was ei or y, but not every occurrence. I don't know why some things changed and others did not.02:25
JuerdI believe I read somewhere that English "by" comes from Dutch "bij" which comes from German "bei".02:26
Talliesin!02:26
TalliesinNow I remember what I was told.02:26
JuerdLikewise: eis -> ijs -> ice02:26
Talliesinij is one letter that came from y but some of the root words had ei (two letters). Yep, it's all coming back.02:26

adnanshmm, why does ubuntu wait for the networking config during bootup?? I don't have any weird NFS like structures, just me laptop?!03:44
ermoivar, that's a pretty advanced operation (behind the scenes) however.03:44
ermoivar, so you'd have to make sure that required ubuntu packages are not forced off your system.03:45
ivarermo, yeah, it's appearing that way03:45
ermoivar, have you considered installing it in /usr/local instead?03:45
ivarit doesn't even appear to be installable03:45
ivarermo, yeah.. i'm thinking a local install would be best...03:45
ermoivar, I know it sounds dumb, but in that way, you could make it depend on the proper ubuntu/debian packages. Plus, there exist a util (also apt-gettable from universe) to manage /usr/local installs03:46
ermoexists, even. Can't remember it's name but I've looked at i briefly before.03:46
ivarermo, what's it called..03:47
ivar?03:47

=== mistral_ [~mistral@81.185.106.155] has joined #ubuntu
ermoivar, I did, at one point, experiment with using apt.conf to tightly control access to debian unstable (I wanted samba 3.0pre packages)03:48
ermoivar, so it's doable if you're careful and don't mind reading through the apt documentation.03:48
ivarermo, it looks like my efforts are futile anyway.. i've got x86 and it appears they've only got a powerpc version03:49
ermoivar, when you install something, you'd have to append an apt-get -u <whatever> to specify that you want packages from your non-standard repo. If you couple that with clever pinning, it's doable.03:50

ermoivar, so maybe all you need to do is to get a hold of the deb-src and compile it for x86.03:54
ermoivar, if so, you also get complete control over dependencies and can make your own, local ubuntunized jsvc package.03:55
