theNeonGodi'll try it again in a bit12:09
theNeonGodwhats the package turnover time like for ubuntu? the biggies, firefox, gaim, are a bit out of date.12:10

ogratheNeonGod: april is the next release12:10
crimsuntheNeonGod: Warty receives no package updates at all. It's stable.12:10

punkrockguy318theNeonGod, if you want the latest versions, check out warty-backports12:10
crimsuntheNeonGod: Hoary has current mozilla-firefox and gaim.12:10
theNeonGodogra running the ntp daemon from terminal within the desktop produces a 'can't find host start' error12:11

punkrockguy318theNeonGod, warty-backports has gaim, firefox, xchat... and more..all newest versions12:11
siretarthas anyone experience with evms? I get an "No such device" error message from the startscript. has anybody seen that already? what could be the culprit?12:11

ograsiretart: do you have evms devices ?12:11

aquariusogra, I didn't realise that. Cheers!12:22

BumjubeoIs there a way to mount your floppy disk drive that isnt mount /mnt/floppy as well :)12:24
Pozaccrimsun, apt is old and lame. It will be replaced soon. :)12:24

Aoietorix, it would be useful lol12:25

Pozaccrimsun, while remaining completely technical flawless12:26
Aoioptimized, system > system settings > network12:26
ograPozac: canonical employs the apt maintainer, so i guess it will stay.....especially since a lot of work currently goes into package signing optimization12:26
aquariusBut I'd like to be able to downgrade by just telling it: see this repository here? Downgrade your packages so that you're not using anything outside this repository. I'm not clear that this is technically possible, though, so downgrading being awkward is not apt's fault...12:26
Pozacaquarius, yeh, it is .. just too hard to use12:27

ograyou are02:31
kayaliDko: it's a ubuntu repository, some place where you'll find packages to install02:31
jdubDko: multiverse is where non-free software lives. it's equivalent to contrib and non-free in debian.02:31

Dkoyea.02:33
jclochesydhcp on cable02:33
ograoptimized: look at the wlan0 config in the file02:33
kayaliDko: Java is non free software, hence, it's found in a special ubuntu repository called multiverse02:34
d_iAnywhere i can get a package list so i can see what kind of software that comes with ubuntu?02:34
ograoptimized: you should call your device ath0 instead of wlan0 but use similar settings (fitting your network indeed)02:34
mojoDko: in multiverse, you still only can find the dependencies, you MUST download another Deb version outside, I got the file but I forget where to download it02:35

CheatersRealmor that.03:59
hypa7iaBrettMeister: just leave a big blank one and split it with the ubu installer03:59
CheatersRealmBrettMeister, you could leave 1 of unpartitioned space03:59

etorixbut is ubuntu binary compatible with debian?06:51

etorixreally?06:52
bob2Scorp: the keys are a hardware thing, and are supported by pbuttonsd (like on every other linux distribution)06:52
xskoulaxScorp, i'm pretty sure it will emulate the 2 button, i think it uses the f11 or f12 key for it06:53
etorixcan i add my 64-bit debian sources?06:53
bob2mouse emulation is also a kernel thing, and supported by ubuntu06:53

LucaBrasinah that's ok .. I'll just go find a distro where others find and fix bugs ;-)10:18

ironwolfprinting anyone?  Where do I look?10:38
cefbob2: was thinking that.. is that pretty standard? last I heard (a while ago) the video format itself was changing10:38
Blackwellcef: i suggest to start looking for the right tool instead of the right format.10:38
Blackwellthe right tool will dictact the formats.10:39
Blackwellit would also dictact the right OS, but you have chosen yours already.10:39
ultrafunkcef: ripping or recording?10:39
cefBlackwell: perhaps.. the main issue really though is that i want the video to be viewable under linux10:39
bob2mpeg-2 is ok, too, iirc10:39
Blackwelldictate, rather10:39
cefultrafunk: recording10:39
bob2Blackwell: in an ideal world, but his choices are limited initially by external factors (ie government-dictated rules about which formats he can use)10:40
Blackwellbob2: oh. did he mention those?10:40
cefand since ubuntu doesn't contain any copyrighted codecs.. makes sense to ask what can be easily recorded to and played back from10:40

Pozaceh. recovery mode, that is :)04:17
RhodanPozac: i can try that, what do I do if that works04:17
Pozacoccy, I think you may have to set the 1024x768 option first in your list of resolutions in your x config04:18
cugaHeya, I am using accelerated video drivers (which replaced the libgl), now i can't apt-get anything cause it keeps trying to put libgl back, how can i tell it too ignore taht so i can apt stuff again?04:18

Mojo_Jojocan someone tell me why linux doesnt need to be defraged :_06:52
mojo_winamp, the win derivative of amp and xamp (pre-xmms) has a media lib feature my brother uses.  i was wondering if there was something like it.06:52
anirsjoerd: how do i sacn the channels?06:53
anirscan06:53
|QuaD-Mojo_Jojo: it is a different type of file system, journaled systems don't need to be defragged cuz they look at the journals06:53
mojo_i tried rhythmbox but haven't played w/it long enough to get it set up for all media types yet06:53
TycheQuad: Do I need to add something special to Xine for it to work? Not working in that either with W32codecs06:53
kerganMojo_Jojo,  easy the file system is jurneled06:53
sjoerdanir: edit -> channels06:53
|QuaD-Mojo: isn't xmms a copy of winamp?06:53
kergan|QuaD-,  no06:53
|QuaD-Tyche: apt-get remove  totem06:53
|QuaD-Tyche: apt-get install totem-xine06:53
Mojo_Jojohow does a journaled filesystem work, I want to try to explain why linux doesnt need a defrag.06:54
mojo_quad/mjjj - journalized fs doesn't imply non-fragmenting to me.  just implies a transaction log for recovery06:54
anirsjoerd: sad thing is that i cant find any edit button06:55
mojo_quad: xmms is derived from xamp, derived from amp.  winamp is derived from amp.  think of it as a fork that crosses over platforms.06:55
|QuaD-mojo_: that was how it was explained to me, i don't know much about filesystems06:55
|QuaD-mojo_: ohh06:55
kerganMojo_Jojo,  it looks at the journel before looking for the file06:55
bur[n] er_Mojo_Jojo: it's not journaling that does that06:55
sjoerdanir: in the menubar of zapping ?06:55
bur[n] er_u don't have to defrag ext2 either... that's not journaled06:56
anirsjoerd: nope06:56
sjoerdanir: can you describe what the zapping window looks like for you then06:56
kerganMojo_Jojo, linux also put the file back on the hdd in one peice (unlike windows a part of it at a time06:56
sjoerdanir: oh and which language your using ;)06:56
mojo_q/mjjj: journal, to my understanding, is a lot like a transactional database.... keeps track of changes to files in a log/journal so you can roll back on failure, re-trace steps06:56
anirsjoerd:english06:56
Mojo_Jojook, so there is a journal (text file?) that it looks for and it lists where verything is?06:57
|QuaD-mojo_: no... it also keeps track of locations and whatnot06:57

anirsjoerd: k07:03
Credkergan, so..? :)07:03
mojo_quad: in a regular file system, changes are made to the file directly.  new data replaces.  jfs if you change part of a file, it writes the 'transaction' to a log built into the filesys.  sort of like a database with transaction support.  so as you update a file, it keeps the history as it goes until update complete.  that way if there is a failure during an update, it can 'roll back' the changes to recover the file to its previous state07:03

mojo_why you don't have to defrag a linux fs though i don't know.  i can only guess that the filesystems are more intelligent and dynamically do self-maintenance as they go07:06

CheatersRealmI have a question.  if warty is xfree86, and isn't hoary supposed to be xorg.  but didn't they also say that you can upgrade from one to another just by downloading?  isn't that kinda hard to switch everything to xorg from xfree and keep the install?09:59

PozacCheatersRealm, much of the difference between the X servers lies in partly the licensing, and partly in the composite extension.. so besides the 'normal' opensource license and eyecandy, xorg = xfr
