BROKEN_LADDERif the os doesn't have codecs, then every app would have to have its own. that would be ridiculous.02:13
GammaRaycodec just stands for encoder/decoder02:13

jdubBROKEN_LADDER: ah, dude, it works the same way.02:16

BROKEN_LADDERwhat i'm hearing here is that different apps in linux need their own codecs.02:17

PovRayManI was looking around gnoppix.org and the "support" link flashes me right to ubuntu's website support.  Does that mean I can ask a Gnoppix related question here and possibly get an answer back? :-)04:25
jdubgelatinouscube: the answer to that is always "ask don't ask to ask" ;-)04:25
hacimgnome seems to keep vlc from outputting sound, what causes that?04:25
gelatinouscubeone, gtk+ fonts, I have search the forums with no luck on getting them to not look like crap04:25
gelatinouscubeany suggestions?04:25
jdubhacim: something else is using your sound device, probably esd. configure vlc to use esd.04:25
jdubgelatinouscube: try various settings in the Fonts dialogue04:26
GammaRaygelatinouscube: what are you comparing them to?04:26
randabisvlc's configuration editor sucks :p04:26
jdubgelatinouscube: depending on the font, whether the autohinter is on (/etc/fonts/local.conf), whether subpixel AA is on and whether it's configured for your screen correctly can all have an impact04:26

Destructocrimsun hey is there a date for the next release ..?07:43
mebaran6 months from the last one07:43
Omoshiroicrimsun: correct me if im wrong, but you have to be root to set the root password... if you do SU or goto the root terminal from gnome it asks for a password, you leave it blank and it says its the wrong password.07:43
mebaranubuntu hasnt missed a release yet07:43

DaNewBHrdwrBoB, not clear?10:29

HrdwrBoBso keyboard PS/2->-usb->switch->-usb->PC ?10:30
DaNewBHrdwrBoB, ya (I think)10:30
DaNewBHrdwrBoB, the keyboard works when connected directly to the PS/2 port of the PC (of course)10:31
LightyDaNewB: How about getting a USB keyboard to plung into the switch?10:31
HrdwrBoBI'm not sure that you can do that10:32
HrdwrBoBcan you even get adapters for that?10:32

DaNewBHostingGeek, what is the debian menu?02:38
jdubDaNewB: the debian menu is a cross-desktop menu system02:38
jdubDaNewB: basically, each package has a menu file02:38
ograomoshiroi: odd release names ?02:39
jdubDaNewB: and the menu system generates the right entries for the tool you use (might be a window manager, menu program, whatever)02:39
omoshiroiyes, warty and hoary, just kinda interesting names.02:39
jdubDaNewB: gnome used to have hard-coded support for the debian menu02:39
DaNewBjdub, so would replace "Applications" and "Computer" in Hoary?02:39
jdubDaNewB: now we use the xdg standard items that menu-xdg generates instead02:40

jonopitti, it was a patch for g-v-m to use pmount03:20
LeChuxhi! Is there any possibility to install ubuntu via another computer using the network03:20
pittijono: hmm, Debian sid now uses the pmount approach, btw03:21
pittijono: the current Debian fix is much more complicated (because it is more generic)03:22
pittijono: it adds some configure options to specify alternate mount programs03:22
pittijono: do you want this or just the quick "replace mount by pmount" hack patch?03:22
jonopitti, you said that the patch basically replaces mount with pmount03:22
jonopitti, just the quick patch if that is fine :)03:22

robstai'd like to jhbuild gnome on my warty box (+xorg from hoary)03:39
robstabut i'm missing Xauth.h03:39
robstafor gnome-terminal03:39
robstais there something like the distrib/packages site for debian for ubuntu where i can search?03:39
robstamy pkg sys seems not to know about Xauth.h at all03:40

=== beyond is now known as beyond-bbc
ograrobsta: no idea, why dont you just use hoary ? it has all this stuff already.....03:44
robstaogra: and "locate Xauth.h" yields nothing03:45
robstaogra: is it likely to break every now and then?03:45
ograrobsta: when did you install the package ? (locatedb is only updated once a day)03:45

ograrobsta: not more then a warty with xorg from hoary and jhbuild gnome ;)03:46

eekanogra any idea if the answer is in the wiki?and if so under what?03:47
ograrobsta: what you are doing there is building a hoary with a warty base which is not worth the effort i guess....hoary is likely to stabilze since we have a Freeze now03:47
ograeekan: look in the sourcecode of the websites for css and stuff03:47
eekanogra I don't know much about css..03:48
ograeekan:so why do you want to clone the wiki ?03:48
