LathiatStoffBox-Steve: so you re-made the package with --initrd, installed the new package?12:50
LathiatStoffBox-Steve: if you are using a custom grub config or somethign you will need to tell it about the initrd12:50
dazedoh no im all about new stuff i just want a file sharing program and i know limewire has a linux release12:50
StoffBox-Steveyes, do it a lot of times12:50

marcin_antnictuku: so what about your /etc/network/interfaces ??? anything about ppp in there?12:57
nictukudazed menu = ~/.fluxbox/menu12:57
StoffBox-Stevehave a link for a howto to install custom modules ?, i think when i compile the driver for nvidia and network card it just work fine :D12:57
nictukumarcin_ant, answered that already, no, it's not necessary to set that up. that's what /etc/ppp/peers/* for.12:57
nictukuthere is also /etc/chatscripts/*12:58
marcin_antnictuku: I know - but these scripts are for "pon"12:58
marcin_antnictuku: and... /etc/init.d/networking12:59
nictukuoh yes indeed.12:59
nictukuwell, it works for me this way :)12:59
marcin_antnictuku: and I would like to start my ppp connection just with any other network interfaces01:00
dazednictuku how do i get tehre01:00
nictukuif you setup the interface in /etc/network/interfaces it will call "pon"01:00
marcin_antnictuku: yes but there is a problem01:00
marcin_antnictuku: because it works nice when system is booted01:00
marcin_antnictuku: but it doesn't work at all on system boot01:01
marcin_antnictuku: because /etc/init.d/networking script doesn't wait for ppp01:01
marcin_antnictuku: and it goes forward01:01
marcin_antnictuku: while there is no ppp connection yet01:01
marcin_antnictuku: I found info about debian bug http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=%2312778601:02
nictukui'm not sure, but I believe that doesn't matter. networking script's job is to call pon, not to wait for it. pon (and other scripts) will set your interface, afaik.01:02

marcin_antnictuku: and everything works good01:05
nictukuthere are many workarounds possible, I presume. You can setup your ppp connection to reload your firewall after it finish connecting, for example.01:05
marcin_antnictuku: maybe your solution with S99internet is good01:06
marcin_antnictuku: but when I got /etc/network/interfaces file and /etc/init.d/networking scripts I would like to use them01:06
dazedhey everyone01:07
dazedthis is a really stupid question but...01:07
marcin_antnictuku: ehh I'll try01:07
nictukuI don't think it would work very well either. if you call "pon isp" and then "restart firewall" it won't work. pon is asynchronous, it goes to the background.01:07

njanBrunellus, esp. since they obviously can't bundle the windows drivers for NDIS cards on the CD.03:57

Brunellusndiswrapper is *miniscule* compared with some of the crippled or generally useless stuff that goes on03:59
njanBrunellus, I haven't checked how big it is, but I'm guessing 100kb counts on an ubuntu CD which has to represent the entire FOSS world :)04:00
Brunelluswe can do without one gnome game to get ndiswrapper on an install cd.04:00
tritiumAMCDeathKnight, it would be /var/log/Xorg.0.log if you're using Hoary04:00
dazed_Devinci: where is it i saved it to how do i know?04:00
njanBrunellus, besides, I'd hazard it's more than that when you account for having the .deb file in order to install it, too.04:00

Atrophylunitik... what are the debian kernels?08:37
=== _4strO is now known as _4`aw
Atrophyis that just a tweaked kernel or is it something different?08:38
sacha__pauldaust: i have linux-headers that i have installed are 2.5.999-test7-... do i need to upgrade them?08:38
lunitikAtrophy: kernels packaged by debian developers... they tend to have a lot of things taken out, and don't tend to be heavily patched...08:38
Atrophyso those = BAD... gotcha.08:38
pauldaoustsacha__: golly, yes, those are ancient.08:38
FASTis there a way to remove any info/config settings for my audio devices, and have something probe and auto configure them?08:39
lunitikAtrophy: Ubuntu kernels appear to get more patches, and also don't seem to remove quite as much... although some still ends up in linux-restricted-modules...08:39
pauldaoustsacha__: I didn't know those were even still available through Ubuntu.08:39

sacha__pauldaust: comes with the cd, btw now i have 2.6.10-1908:40

Atrophyoh here's the best geek joke of all08:45
pauldaoustdaniels seems to have the answer, but seems also to have left08:45
mebaran151he probably does08:45
AtrophyThere are only 10 types of people in the world... those who understand binary, and those that don't.08:45
mebaran151probably some sysctl thing08:45

mebaran151so if you know what you want to pass08:54
pauldaoustmebaran151: so it is persistent, through virtue of hdparm.conf?08:54

I did get it working in Gentoo, but the same config in Ubuntu never worked.09:01
mebaran151for that kind of config09:01

Quaruptis it python/tkl or maybe c or what?09:16
lunitikQuarupt: C09:17
QuaruptloThats what i figured09:17
neomIt's based on the netmail code, it's diffrent though iirc.09:17
punkassi should just be able to install ubuntu on to the empty partition it will find my xp and add it to grub and all is well?09:17
