Jahooty2.6.8.1-3-amd64-generic is what uname -a returns12:19

Chipzzall saying different things02:25

tritiumChipzz, linux-source includes ubuntu patches.  Beyond that, you'll need whatever patches you want.02:26

tritiumChipzz, you can use kernel-source, but that's got debian patches, not ubuntu02:27

Spinaltappactually i pretty much don't game at all, which is a big factor in my decision to switch09:35
Teflon_tonyThen perhaps09:35
Dreamer3Teflon_tony: of course by then it may be too late09:35
topyliTeflon_tony: yeah, windows would die09:35
basculeDreamer3: cause like IE office is tied to the shell, hence the office exploits as well as the Interne Exploiter ones09:35
Spinaltappi use Autocad for work and school, so i'll need the linux version of that09:36
vjazDreamer3, Doesn't MS Office use some background process which loads most of Office at system startup?09:36
zenroxtopyli,  a small fraction will install native in linux another %age will run with wine09:36
basculesucky security but fast startup, take your pick09:36
Dreamer3vjaz: even without that :)09:36

Teflon_tonyApple is not compition because they are a hardware company, and their computers are locked in, people on the other hand can readily switch to Linux on the same hardware they run their buggy windows, one of the way they keep people who use X86 using windows is via office, if they give up having exclusive office rights on X86, they might as well release the source code and call it a night09:41

mpqthe light goes on and off but the touchpad stays on09:42
basculeTeflon_tony: you underestimate MSs ability to turn a buck .. :)09:42
Amaranthzenrox: It doesn't need a complete rewrite. They just need to take the drivers back out of the kernel (in NT 3 they weren't in the kernel) and use something like Avalon instead of GDI (that's why Longhorn is there, a transition).09:42
mpqdoes anyone know how to fix it?09:42

vjazlappy, There should be a disabled archive.ubuntu.com -entry there.09:47
Slikejava is already in my path09:47

lappyvjaz, ok. hangon09:47
Teflon_tonylol09:47

Sliketopyli: i know that....but i'd like to have it started with a simple double-click, is that possible?09:48

vjazlappy, yes09:48

topyliSlike: yes, right click the desktop and select 'Create Launcher'09:48

topyliSlike: there's a command line09:49
vjazlappy, after enabling the repository, yes09:49
Dreamer3xp prolly runs better/fasted on this lappy09:49
AmaranthSlike: Make the shortcut run 'java -jar /path/to/file.jar' (without quotes).09:49
vjazlappy, then you should be able to find kde09:49
Neil3Dreamer3, i also think file organisation and management on windows isnt as solid as nix, like users only being able to write to their home dir and stuff09:49
Slikeamaranth: then it says something like java not found09:49
Neil3and apps being in one place, libraries in another etc09:49

zenroxvery logical09:50
Neil3the registry is a real pain too sometimes09:50

elfbecause totem comes as gstreamer or xine which is better?01:28

elfok01:31
elfso u recommend it?01:31
AmaranthNo!01:31
elfwhy not?01:31
Amaranthelf: Just enable universe and install gstreamer-plugins.01:31
AmaranthAfter I did that I only had one thing that would play in xine and not in totem.01:32
Vjazelf: not sure... I use gstreamer at the moment, but then again, I don't have it setup for playing any propietary stuff01:32

VjazAmaranth: will gstreamer-plugins enable support for stuff like WMV and QuickTime? Don't they need w32codecs or something?01:32
