tritiumjdub, okay, thanks.  I'll keep a look-out for it.12:16

tritiumWilliam_Cain, the easiest way is to browse the packages using the Synaptic Package Manager.12:16
carambolbut RP shows up in the menu12:16
William_CainOk, many thanks.12:16
tritiumthere are other ways, but that's what I recommend12:16
adamistp00p: you still here?12:16
caramboltritium how to fix it12:17
tritiumWilliam_Cain, if you enable the "universe" and "multiverse" repositories, there will be a lot of additional software available for installation12:17
William_CainI believe I have done that.12:18
jcoxon77go and have a look at http://people.zeelandnet.nl/triade/linux/wl-012.html12:18
tritiumcarambol, what do you mean?12:18
caramboltritium :but totem and mozplugger no problem12:18

jcoxon77you don't need to do the first bit12:18
jcoxon77from about section 2.212:19
tritiumcarambol, did you install Marillat's realplayer package, or how did you install it?12:19
William_CainI went to this Ubuntu FAQ page, and a lot of useful things were listed there.12:19
William_CainBut one question remains.12:19
carambolmarillat before dist upgrading12:19
tritiumWilliam_Cain, there's also a wiki, www.ubuntuguide.org, and ubuntu forums12:19

jcoxon77sadly cause you don't have an internet connection you can't install it via synaptic12:20

William_CainGraphic operations are really slow. Most screen savers run at 5 - 10 fps. How can I install the newest drivers for my graphic card? I have Radeon 9700 PRO.12:21

VipeRmaNaeb I dont have the internet on the computer I need the file on :)12:24
RiddellvanRijn: you have to enable the universe repository12:24
caramboltritium it said realplayer 8: not installed12:25
William_CainAnother question: When installing packages, I usually download around 400kb/s, but it sometimes drops to 3kb/s for a konsiderably long time. Is this normal?12:25
RiddellvanRijn: then you can just install it as you say12:25
RiddellvanRijn: KDE 3.2 is in warty, KDE 3.3 is in hoary12:25

kentVipeRmaN, the sad part about Linux/Gnome is that the way to handle floppy's are a bit strange. When you copied files to the floppy, dont just remove tha floppy. Make sure you "unmount" the floppy first before removing it.12:34

robertjthey are applied to the vanilla sources during the build03:02
DAC1138i already have a kernel built and everything, i just need to get it to boot, but something inside ubuntu wont let it03:02
robertjyou can supply your patches, your config and work with ubuntus config and build packages and that way if you go to install something that will break because of your custom kernel it will tell you03:02
robertjdid you use --initrd?03:03
DAC1138whats "--initrd" ?03:03
DAC1138whenever i build a custom kernel before, i never made a new initrd, and they all worked perfectly03:03
robertjit's just the first thing I would try03:04
Plukif you want to use initrd youre supposed to make a new initrd everytime you make a new kernel03:04
robertjdpkg-buildpackage does it automagically03:04
tritiumcrypticreign, do your nvidia-glx and nvidia-kernel-common versions match?03:04
DAC1138i dont even know how to make an initrd, and the manpages dont tell me anything useful03:04

crypticreigntritium: what dpkg parameter is that to check?03:05
robertjit will make your life much easier during upgrades03:05
tritiumcrypticreign, you can use "dpkg -l | grep nvidia"03:05

jdz_farruinn: Thats one possible java-vm that'll let you use java-applets in firefox, yes.04:25
kentneighborlee, if you choose to either reinstall or upgrade, i would first spend some time upgrading. it might help, and for me Hoary now is stable (but there is no guerantee..)04:25
neighborleekent, 8 bittorrents eh ;-)...busy man heh04:25

jdz_farruinn: however, I don't think there are instructions on the ubuntuguide site for ibm's04:26
jdz_farruinn: it should be fairly similar though.04:26
farruinnnope, but that's ok04:26
neighborleekent, so after upgrade you still could login to desktop04:27
kentneighborlee, i would actually try to remove the nvidia driver first if i was you.  That might help. Just remove the package, and make *sure* you are not loading the nvidia kernel-module, and that you use "nv" and not "nvidia" as the driver for X. (if you know howto,..?)04:27
kentneighborlee, yes. but i could not use the nvidia driver. I dont know why, but X gets crazy then. I have an old tnt2-card, so i dont get much 3d anyway so i dont mind using the free driver.04:28

MartokHey dudes, I have a question.07:59
MartokLOL, I used Fedora Core.07:59
trey3kuru, yes... its rather nice actually... but whatever... off subject..08:00
pertzI've been considering ubantu lately because I don't like running Debian unstable due to the lack of security support, and the stable version just isn't cutting it due to age.08:00
MartokI thought it was cool until I realized it was just a test bed for Redhat developers to try new stuff.08:00
kurupertz: I use ubuntu on my workstation and debian for my servers.08:00
trey3pertz, most security stuff is already in the packages in sid...08:01
pertzStill debian on the servers then?08:01
kurupertz: and some Gentoo thrown in there.. and a little bit of FreeBSD ;)08:01
MartokHey, does anybody know how play 2 sounds at the sametime?08:01
kurupertz: everyone's got a different way of seeing things. Depends on your requirements.08:01
trey3Martok, buy a decent sound card?  ;)08:01
Martoktrey3: No, it works in Windows.08:01
jdz_Martok: You need to use a sound daemon.  Like ESD :)08:02
MartokOk, I'll search for ESD.08:02
=== davepet [~dell@host-66-81-140-129.rev.o1.com] has left #ubuntu []
MartokI hope it's easy to configure.08:02
pertzWell security is a have to, so unstable doesn't quite cut it (even though I've always claimed Debian's "unstable" was as good as anyone else's "stable", but it's getting to the point where I'm having to compile a lot of crap by hand and try and watch security updates myself while running stable. I know they're close to a release, but I anticipate being in the same situation again another 1-2 years from now....08:03
jdz_Martok: It's part of Gnome, so it should be install and working.  You'll just need to have whichever applications your using output to ESD instead of directly to ALSA or OSS08:03
trey3jdz_, if he's using Ubuntu (one can assume he is) ... esd is being used by default... and uhh, well - going by his question - its still not working  :/08:03
MartokHow do I configure it?08:03
kurupertz: I think of Ubuntu as 'just another branch of Debian'08:03
kurupertz: it has yet to deviate from that08:03
=== whaq__ [~whaq@] has joined #ubuntu
MartokI guess it doesn't work with my card?08:03
jdz_Martok: Which applications are you trying to get to play sound at the same time?08:04
kurupertz: so, if that's what you're looking for, Ubuntu is right for you.08:04
jdz_Martok: It should work with any card.  But an application might not be using ESD.08:04
MartokI want the Gnome sounds to play, but still beable to listen to music in XMMS.08:04
trey3pertz, seriously, most security updates are just backported from new packages... take into account that the devels use sid in most cases... you think they want security holes?08:04
kurupertz: and Debian's unstable is not as good as anyone's stable (unless you're talking MS).. it can get quite messy.08:04
jdz_Martok: Ah!  Right.  Go into XMMS's output settings.  There should be a drop-down box, select ESD08:04
=== IvyCQHome [~Sir@c906300c.virtua.com.br] has joined #ubuntu

whiprushdselect, aptitude, and synaptic are all available08:05
crimsunpertz: you can use dselect if you wish.08:05
kurudselect is crap08:05
trey3kuru, I ran Debian Unstable for 4 years... rarely a huge issue...08:05
MartokOutput plugin?08:05
crimsunkuru: ...subjectively. :)08:05
pertzI've run unstable before too with really good results.08:05
randabishey someone see if this works08:05
trey3pertz, dselect is even being deprecated in Debian in favor of Aptitude... Ubuntu comes with this...08:05
jdz_Martok: The basic theroy is you can only have one application outputting sound to the card at once (unless it has hardware mixing).  So to get mutiple applications, you need a sound daemon (like ESD) to do software mixing.  If an application tries to output directly to the sound card, it won't work.08:05
pertzJust afraid to run it on a critical production box - I've kept it on the edges.08:06
MartokOh, ok.08:06
kurutrey3: sure.. but not on a server08:06
MartokSo is Gnome outputing directly?08:06
kurutrey3: that can cause havoc08:06
pertzYea, I know, they're phasing dselect :P08:06
kurutrey3: cause there have been times when it was _very_ unstable08:06
kurutrey3: broken pacakges, etc.08:06
kurutrey3: most of the time it's smooth08:06
jdz_Martok: ESD is outputting directly.  Everything else needs to output to ESD, which does the mixing.08:06

trey3crimsun, only bad issue for me thus far was the menu's... and even that was workable...08:07
kurutrey3: this is not acceptable on a production level server.08:07
pertzUbantu doesn't track all of the packages debian does though right? And I'm guessing if I grabbed the debian version of one I'm suddently going to be looking at a lot of dependancy problems?08:07
kurupertz: yes, mostly due to package namings08:08
crimsunpertz: it's quite possible that you'll run into dependency issues.08:08
MartokOk, thanks jdz_, and trey3.08:08
kurupertz: so you might want to grab the debian source, modify, re-generate the .deb and install ;)08:08
jdz_pertz: You can enable Ubuntu's Universe, and get all of Debians packages08:08
kurutrey3: did you say gaim-e.sf.net ?08:08
jdz_pertz: Ubuntu doesn't support all of Debian's packages though, only the one's in Ubuntu's main.08:08
trey3kuru, yeah08:08
kurutrey3: can't find it08:09
pertzSo how good is their package coverage compared to debian? And does anyone know anything about progress on efforts to compile source packages on the fly to try to fix some of the versioning problems?08:09
trey3kuru, *shrug* copy and paste from the site  :/08:09
whiprushpertz: universe is basically the rest of debian compiled for ubuntu.08:09
jdz_pertz: Everything in Debian is in Ubuntu's universe. :)08:09
jdz_pertz: Enable universe and you'll be all set.08:09
trey3jdz_, not utterly true... for instance... no 'alsaconf'...08:10
pertzSo what does universe do? Just a translation between package names or something?08:10

calamaritrey3: what does this line mean "calamari, uhh... replace menu.lst on floppy with menu.lst on hd?"08:38
lyycrimsun: ii  mplayer-custom 1.0-pre5-0.6ub The Ultimate Movie Player For Linux08:38
calamaritrey3: or are you referring to a grub boot disk?08:38
ficusplanetjdub, OK. Thanks.  Also along the lines of hardware "just working," are you guys changing netapplet at all?08:39
trey3calamari, umm... that is a grub error... you said thats the issue... so bootdisk has grub  :/08:39
crimsunlyy: that's why you're getting an illegal instruction error. You need to remove 'mplayer-custom' and install 'mplayer-686'.08:39
Local_mani got the live CD stuck in the floppy drive.. but it still sticks out far enough to use as a cup holder.. question is.. will it hold a full 20 oz cappacino?08:39
jdubficusplanet: netapplet, yes. not networkmanager.08:39
trey3which would make sense... as most linux bootdisks these days have grub...08:39
lyycrimsun: ok. know where i can get mplayer-686 aside from googling for it?08:39
calamaritrey3: I made the boot disk myself using syslinux08:39
ficusplanetjdub, Yeah, I heard of that decision.  Will netapplet be made into an actual applet and cleaned up, etc., though?08:39
crimsunlyy: the same place you got 'mplayer-custom'.08:40
lyycrimsun: i used synaptic08:40
jdubficusplanet: most likely, yes.08:40
crimsunlyy: (presuming you used debian-marillat and sh.nu)08:40

MainVoidsangriag: I'd probably only share the swap partition to be quite honest with you....10:35

sangriagNg, apt-get update gives the similar temporary error with no such files or directory and "Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead"10:56
MainVoidpvh: loose data is my std disclaimer.. I'm overly cautious..10:56
pvhI mean, why not just prompt the user with "This partition must be unmounted before committing."10:57
Ngpvh: to be fair, qtparted isn't in the main section of ubuntu, it's in universe, which means it's not officially an ubuntu supported package. I'm sure that in hoary or the one after they'll have a nice gparted interface with safe warnings and stuff10:57

William_CainOk, that's not good since I use an AMD XP2400+ CPU.02:29
DonLemmiHi, i have another question. Normally wirh Xfree, one leaves out the lines for the refresh rates on the XF86-Config and then the Monitor is probed. But if i comment out these lines with ubuntu, my Xsessions starts at 60 Hz with 640x480. Anyone can tell me why?02:29

jcoxon77but now they are grouped together in the left corner so that i can only see the icons and not read the names02:48
