knapjackjohnnybezak: But, a co-worker loaded Ubunut warty on an old iMac and it ran very nicely.  I was impressed.01:39
out_of_focushow come nobody has came up with a good linux/windows program that is similar in functionality to Mac OS X's Expose?01:40
thr1ceapokryphos, yes...but I always want to be as updated as possible; when a new gaim comes out, I want it instantly01:40

knapjackCitrix client, too.01:41
=== knapjack needs Citrix access for work.
johnnybezakknapjack: yeah the problem is ppc linux is a niche in a niche01:41
apokryphosthr1ce: if it's just a package you want to install, then you just update that from the repository. No need for a whole system upgrade (if you don't want to make one)01:41
thr1cehow long do packages like Gaim take before they are updated ?01:41
apokryphosthr1ce: I have no idea; I don't use gaim.01:41
knapjackthr1ce: security updates happen as fast as possible.01:41

Zotnixtck, don't let Gaim developers catch you saying gAIM.01:42
knapjackthr1ce: usually version updates require you to wait for a new version of that distribution, build from source (not too bad), or try to install the binary from the newer distribution.01:42
thr1celike, lets say Gaim 1.1.5 came out yesterday; how long would it take before I can apt-get upgrade it01:42

the_grey_ghostI have 20 Imacs with os9 and I don't know what to do with them! Half cannot use ubuntu01:45
thr1ceknapjack, no, if I ran ubuntu, i would run hoary01:45
johnnybezakthe_grey_host: why not?01:45
out_of_focusbut are all the same packages for x86 linux able to run on ppc without having to recompile for the ppc platform?01:45
johnnybezakout_of_focus: ubuntu has all packages compiled for ppc01:45
out_of_focusdoes ppc ubuntu have universe?01:45
thr1ceotherwise everyone woudl run os x on x86 :P01:45

johnnybezakthe_grey_host: i thought all newish macs could boot from the cd - other wise how did you install os 9 on them?01:47
knapjackthr1ce: ...and I've found that as long as the package in question has a maintainer, you can just email them and say, hey, did you know a new version just came out?01:47

the_grey_ghostOut_Of _Focus Because I need to do things Legit. OSX costs money dosen't it?01:48
knapjackout_of_focus: or 680x001:48

out_of_focusbut linux it can run quite a lot01:48
johnnybezakblizah: but it can be on your linux filesystem01:48
apokryphosthr1ce: only for a new distribution version. Like hoary/warty. Taht's the only time...01:49
thr1ceapokryphos, I change them to be able to get the latest, right ?01:49
johnnybezakblizah: yep01:49
thr1ceis there a changelog to see what's new?  or does apt-get update do that?01:49
apokryphosthr1ce: only when a new version of ubuntu is out. Like when a new version of Slackware would be out.01:49
knapjackapokryphos: You can add repositories for unsupported packages, or add Debian source repositories if you want a slightly faster turnaround.01:49
apokryphosthr1ce: for new packages you only need to *update* your sources, and then and then get/install package.01:49
knapjackapokryphos: Case in point: MPEG support.01:49
thr1ceapokryphos, well, slackware is different; I read a changelog every few days, find a mirror, and download the new packs01:50

knapjackthr1ce: Case in point: I *want* (not *need*) the latest bzflag.  There is no package for 2.0 in Warty or Hoary yet.  I added the Debian Unstable repository, did an 'apt-get update && apt-get build-dep bzflag && apt-get -b source bzflag && dpkg -i bzflag*deb' and voila, I'm done, and I have the latest, and it's a package.  No big deal.02:15

pugiothose programs were gdm and some other pieces of gnome04:02
pugioso now, the user couldn't log in normally, AND gnome isn't working correctly04:03
_phate_After reading http://www.ubuntulinux.org/ubuntu/components, I take it Ubuntu is sticking to the Debian philosophy04:03

pugioJDahl: right, well, this problem occured once before, and I'm telling you - GDM DID NOT EXIST04:10
pugioseriously, one minute it was there04:10
pugiothe next, the /usr/bin/gdm was gone04:10
pugionot even an error log04:10
pugiozip zilch nadda04:10
pugioit was gone, I had to reinstall it04:11
pugioanyway, I'm still having issues with Gnome04:11

johnnybezakpvh: i'll have a look then05:57

guestishpvh: inconsistant state?06:06
crimsunguestish: no, the "only" differences between debian and ubuntu absolutely are _not_ limited to 12 packages06:06

Brunellusmajor difference:  ubuntu support is a lot friendlier!06:06

pvhguestish: No, the up-to-date repository, in my experience, is kept clean.06:06
guestishcool, so packages are added every day?06:07
pvhguestish: Yeah.06:07
crimsunguestish: besides the focused release schedule, there's also a major commitment to a unified desktop experience, which means a bevy of kernel packages, device management, and microtuning of various configurations behind-the-scenes06:07
guestishcrimsun: so its more integrated?06:07
crimsunguestish: every 30 minutes pool is updated as opposed to once per day06:07

Levandersprongie, any idea how those system calls work?  I'm thinking it must know my hostname from /etc/hosts, which is bread.  Then it looks up the fqdn, using hosts first since that's how nsswitch.con is set up to do, and in hosts it finds that bread is *now* an alias for highhat.net?

sprongieLevander: and they're all  not sure then07:26
Levandersprongie, no, first is as localhost, then my private ip 192.168.... as bread07:26
emberlyis the .gnomerc file supposed to be in my home directory?07:26
sprongieon my old box, it would prefer to resolve as ipv6 first, so i'd see a lot of connections from ::1 in my logs07:26
sprongieexposed a lot of ipv4 assumptions in my log parsing scripts ;)07:27
Levandersprongie, but you know, I'm thinking if I just took out the bread alias of localhost, then when the resolver tries to look up bread in the hosts file, it would file.  Then, as configured in nsswitch.conf, it would fall back to looking it up in DNS, and in there it would find bread.07:27
Levandersprongie, don't think I needed to add an entry for bread.highhat.net to hosts, just think I needed to remove the bread alias from localhost.localdomain07:28
sprongieLevander: that's why, because you're connecting through the 192.168 interface to get it to not show up as localhost.  it's actually going through your NIC, not the loopback07:28
Levanderwhat's going through the 192.168 interface?  You think the hostname utility is doing that?07:29
sprongiewhatever's making you see "localhost" and not "bread"07:29
Levanderthat was hostname (really worried about 2 other apps, but hostname is the simplest example of problem i could find)07:29
Steve_G4what is POSIX?07:30
sprongiehostname doesnt know anything about your hosts file07:30
sprongieit's set by /etc/hostname usually07:30
Levandersprongie, when I stop downloading movies off the internet, I can see if router lights flash up when I run host07:30
crimsunSteve_G4: http://www.pasc.org/#POSIX07:30
Levanderbut the network driver is prolly optimized to prevent that from happening, i'm guessing???07:30
Steve_G4thank you07:30
sprongieLevander: yeah it'll hit the nic's internal loopback07:30
Levanderwhen I run hostname*07:30
sprongieit should flash the nic's blinkenlights07:31
Levandersprongie, the nic's loopback is different than some other loopback?07:31
sprongieLevander: is a virtual loopback.  all software.07:32
Levandersprongie, if that's the case then, /etc/hosts is really a screwy concept then07:32
sprongiethe internal loopback in the nic is a shortcut that tells it to not send a signal but just queue the packet07:32
Levanderthat's how a lot of programs are using to identify my machine07:32
sprongiean external loopback is an actual piece of testing hardware07:32
Levanderlike in the title bar of GNU emacs07:32
Levanderbut, if I use my real, network FQDN on my localhost, all my communications are gonna go through my NIC loopback07:33
sprongieshould be just as fast07:33

sprongieyah, X *can* be set up to only ever do unix sockets, but it rarely is07:41
Levanderso, the way I've got my machine set up, it's possible X would be using my NIC loopback next time I restart it?07:41
sprongieX will use unix sockets if you're on the same machine as the X server07:42
sprongieer the X client ... er if they're colocated.  you get the idea07:42
sprongieunix sockets are sooper-fast07:42
Levandersprongie, so X prolly knows how to figure out the same thing that the NIC loopback does?07:42

FlyNavyI have a Rage Mobility 128 card.  First tim eloading Ubuntu.  X11 file says XF86config-408:29
FlyNavyBeen about 5 years since playing w/ linux, so I have forgotten a lot08:30
viper12okay, so you're on the stock warty 4.10 build, and using xfree for that.  you need to use an editor to open XF86config-4 file to see what settings (specifically the monitor vertical and horizontal settings are listed.)  Just from the description, it sounds as the monitor settings are incorrect for the 'type of monitor you're using.08:31
viper12the file is located in the /etc/X11 directory. (btw.)08:31

viper12its NOT resolutions you need to worry aobut here FlyNavy.  Its the vertical and horizontal frequency settings.  check your monitor's manual or google the monitor to get those, and then compare them to what is listed in the device section.08:33
FlyNavyRoger that.  Do I have to list range or just set specific frequency?08:34
viper12FlyNavy:  here is an example. (don't use these, just look for the similar lines.  and then compare what you have in the file to what the  monitor NEEDS.08:35
viper12Section "Monitor"08:35
FlyNavyThanks.  Remember seeing that.  Will give it a shot.  Log file showed starting in those and then adjusting to much higher frequency.08:35

Roccoviper12 i always changed my cpufreq manually. yesterday i installad powernowd and it worked. but after rebooting it didn't work anymore, so i deleted it, bu now i can even change cpufreq manually08:59
viper12aha.  the modem is doing dhcp, and you also have a dhcp enabled server?  My bet is you need to go into the router config and turn that off there, so the server is the only machine getting the ip..08:59
calamariAgabus: I'd need to connect from another computer to know for sure08:59
togsit DHCP's ok with winXP, assigns my 203.x.x.x IP08:59

crimsunviper12: thanks.09:01
viper12togs, did you get my 'bit' about the server AND the router using dhcp?09:01
crimsunRocco: are you positive that's the file you're supposed to write to?09:01
viper12and sure crimsun.  my 'boggle' on the deal is the disappearing rights bit.  The ONLY thing that I can think of is that something 'updated' tween then and now that's changed the way things work, but I confess ignorance as to 'why'.09:02
crimsunRocco: given the semantics, it doesn't make sense to write to the current frequency, which an ls -l /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq confirms09:02
togsviper12, i did. If you mean my ADSL modem by router. So are you saying I need to turm off the dhcp server on the ubuntu box?09:02

viper12okay, backtracking a minute here togs.  First, why do you want something other than the 'modem' to be the DHCP server?  Second, if you enabled the ubuntu box to be the dhcp server, then just 'undo' what you did.09:05
the_grey_ghostsudo aptitude search <package name> will tell you if the package is in the database09:06

mactinyi know you all would argue it is ready already, but when do you think ubuntu will reach a point of maturity whereby itll be a easy change over from xp, with no "Bugs". Lets face it, getting the basics working under windows is much easier.12:13
mactinyi really hope itll fulfill its potential12:14
mactinywhere is the community heading with it12:14

mactinyi just hope, that ubuntu sees things from the perspective of the client, who are mostly "dumb". They need lots of pretty pictures, and nice sounds to keep their attention. But from my view, and its an unimformed one, it seems that many linux developers see things from their "ooh, do you know what under the bonnet" perspective. Am i worng in thinking that.12:35

njanespecially when the issue is something contentious and picky, like use of the word 'stable' (the english language usage vs. the debian usage)02:00
njanthoreauputic, I take your word for it; like I said I was just raising the issue because I think it's important :)02:00

sleon|tuXwhy ?02:07
sleon|tuXand how to fix that?02:07
njanfor my 2c, a bot's useful for recalling URLs and non-contentious factoids. But anything explanatory needs to be done by people or, like someone pointed out, is too lengthy to be pasted into IRC. I thoroughly dislike how bots are used in #debian.02:07
spiraldaniels: all right, so I hope it will be updated :-)02:07
apokryphosI disagree that bots *shouldn't* be here. That is a little too extreme; it's pointless searching for the same link, or venturing into my bookmarks when a command can give the link to the person in question faster, and with less effort from my side.02:07
pchillerthe RestrictedFormats wiki page mentions LAME but does not mention that it is only found in multiverse02:07
njanAnd in fact, factoids are better explained by people in any case.02:08
njanapokryphos, agreed - a lot of the time, people in here know the link is 'on the forums', but don't know where02:08
apokryphosnjan: that's obviously not necessarily true. But anyhow, the "facts" explained on a wiki or done by a person, are they not?02:08
apokryphos*are done02:08

njanbob2, it depends how you want your community to work. No-one ever reads all available documentation, so if you want to get pedantic, you can always tell someone to RTF M/FAQ/Documentation02:11
bob2sleon|tuX: does restarted hal work?02:11

sleon|tuXthere is now hald is running02:11
sleon|tuXafter it02:11
sleon|tuXand also inserting media causes no reaction02:11
njanbob2, there are lots of instances of people obviously not putting *any* effort into reading the FAQ, but in my experience with online communities, the best way to get people like that to advance their learning is to actually talk to them rather than flaming them and making them feel unwelcome in a community they're probably only just coming to understand and have only just discovered.02:12

njanbob2, but what debian doesn't always manage is automating those cases in a human way - I have to question the motives of a lot of people who have unpleasant replies to commonly asked questions - channels on freenode inevitably attract newcomers.

I've used the word 'stable' in the english language context in more than one instance in #debian where there's been a response from a community member who obviously hadn't read what I'd written and bludgeoned me because they misunderstood what they did read because they assumed something about my usage of the word :)02:20

njanbob2, indeed. It has to be noted, though, debian has one of the best communities of all the distros. Many smaller distros have channels that don't even have anyone alive in them.. imo, only gentoo matched debian before ubuntu came along02:22
wheelbarrI'm trying to boot from the hoary live CD on a toshiba 2210CDT and all I get is the mouse, works fine, but nothing else. Checked the web site and the 2210CDT is said to work fine. Is this the right channel for this02:22

zenwhenthoreauputic, I dont go into #debian. Those people need to get laid. BADLY. They are bitter about everything.02:31
njanzenrox, and I'm a 2.2GHz p4 with 1.3gb ram02:31
wheelbarrso hoary is memory hungry ?>02:31
johnnybezakit's not possible to run 2 apache servers (for the web) on the same ip is it?02:31
zenwhenI like all the new stuff in hoary02:31
zenwhenbut pango seems really slow02:31
thoreauputicI used to be something of a regular in #debian, but I got really tired of the sophomoric arrogance of many in there...02:31
njanwheelbarr, no clue. But 'choppy' is a good description of it at times :)02:31
njanthoreauputic, sophomoric in what sense?02:32
zenwhenthings just render slowly02:32

factotumyeah, lurking and just saying rtfm or google doesnt help anyone02:32
bob2hm, the last time zenwhen was in #debian was two months ago, and he/she got no answer, really02:32
thoreauputicnjan: people who imagine they are expert, and have ego problems - maybe sophomoric is the wrong term02:32
wheelbarris there a menu option at boot up to creat a swap file or can it be done manually ?02:32
bob2arun--: most likely that you compiled something from source02:32
johnnybezakwheelbarr: there is a good how to for this on the front page of linux.com atm02:33
njanthoreauputic, sophistic would be a good descriptor, I thought you might have been aiming for that, which is why I asked :)02:33
=== wheelbarr isnt very clever but he can lift heavy things
arun--bob2: it is a fresh install :) from array 4 cd i guess02:33
njanthoreauputic, sophistic as in sophism..02:33
factotumwheelbarr: it can be done manualy, at least with ext3, but im not sure how02:33

thoreauputicnjan: in the sense pretentious; inflated in style or manner; as,   sophomoric affectation. [U. S.] 02:33
nasdaqwhat do you mean zenwhen?02:34
wheelbarrfactotum: warty gave you the option at boot time to add swap02:34
zenwhenHelpful or not, stuck up arrogant people suck.02:34
wheelbarrthought hoary would also02:34
thoreauputicnjan: from 'dict"02:34
nasdaqyou mean many people in here is not helpfull?02:34
factotumwheelbarr: it doesn't?02:34
njanthoreauputic, it's a word I've never seen used before, but I'm guessing it has roots in the US school system, so I'm not surprised ;)02:34
wheelbarrfactotum: couldnt find it02:34
arun--ok i will try to reinstall again02:34
factotumhmmm thats...wierd02:34
njanthoreauputic, sophistic has a similar meaning but is about 1500 years older :-D02:34

Tycho_Atreideshey, i dont know crap about linux and have a dilemma, can you guys help me out?02:35
njanzenwhen, I take your point, but they aren't all like that.02:35
thoreauputicnjan: here we might say "undergraduate" (which in itself is kind of a sophomoric term)02:35
njanTycho_Atreides, ask away, someone'll help if they can :)02:35
factotumI always have fun in #slackware, but this channel is quite good as well02:35
njanthoreauputic, yeah.. I think I was aware that a sophmore vaguely compared to that in the UK..02:35
