alleeI checked kern.log.  Now it looks like no DSDT patch is applied (or ubuntu changed printks?)12:26
jimmywallee: thanks, since kubuntu is really ubuntu with kde instead of gnome , will the packages released for ubuntu work perfectly on kubuntu?12:27
apokryphosThey will, yes.12:27
alleejimmyw: yes.12:27
kidzeusHey. I just installed kubuntu-desktop to my hoary installation, and now when I run synaptic and go to upgrade packages, it tells me that it's going to remove ubuntu-base. and I can't unmark it. Will this screw my gnome?12:27
apokryphosUbuntu-base is a metapackage... removing it won't remove anything else.12:28
jimmywallee: have you ever used xandros , mepis before using kubuntu ?12:28
alleejimmyw: no.  Never saw a reason before kubuntu to try a debian flavor12:28
kidzeusthanks. was kinda worried12:29
jimmywhmm ok, sorry for the questions , just tryin to decide on which distro to go for , i thought i had it with xandros but ...12:29
=== kidzeus is now known as taki
apokryphosIf you like KDE, Kubuntu is great.12:30
jimmywapokryphos: yeah i installed ubuntu about a month ago and i liked it except for gnome, we use gnome in college and i just dont like it, probably from using windows for so long12:30
=== taki is now known as kidzeus
jimmywis kubuntu totally stable since its still only a preview release?12:31
apokryphosNot totally stable; technically in "developement", as is all of Hoary.12:31
dimmaki just don't like not being able to right click and edit lots of properties in gnome... and the spatial file manager by default is sooo annoying for me12:31
jimmywapokryphos:  have you had any probs with it?12:31
apokryphosbut, as far as I've seen the majority of the community is using Hoary. At least nearly everyone on IRC.12:32
dimmakand that can't be disabled on the machines at my university12:32
dimmakbut at least i can login under kde there12:32
apokryphosjimmyw: there are a few little tweaks that need to be done (sudo stuff needs to be finalized; one or two broken dependencies still), but generally it's been great.12:32
jimmywdimmak: i wish we could here, its stupid ,the admins (maybe rightly) are so protective of their linux boxes12:32
dimmakwhat school?12:32
kidzeusthat's funny jimmy, cause I tend to prefer Gnome, and I've been using OS X for a while now.12:33
jimmywapokryphos: its sounding very good, do g++ and other development tools come preinstalled?12:33
jimmywdimmak:  ul , ireland12:33
kidzeusI wouldn't mind being able to change my screen res on the fly with my ati. any word on that?12:33
apokryphosjimmyw: Pre-installed... I'm not sure. But the vast majority of compile necessities come with one package; easily installable.12:33
jimmywkidzeus: i used to work for symantec for a while and i used a max there, i LOVE the look of os x, i dont think any desktop can match it yet12:34
jimmywapokryphos:  ah yeah, thats ok , xandros didnt come with any development tools 12:34
kidzeusyeah, I must say I've yet to see it's match for usability and pleasure. at least for my own needs12:34
apokryphosjimmyw: just download the "build-essential" package.12:34
jimmywoh , i dont spose anyone knows if kubuntu supports nvidia opengl by default?12:34
kidzeusbut I figured it was long past due I hop into linux, and ubuntu is treating me right so far12:34
dimmaki really like mac for "expose" ... sorry no easy way to accent in gaim and i don't memorize the clipboard12:35
apokryphosjimmyw: it supports it all; drivers can be installed very easily; can get them from the repositories.12:35
dimmakor character map rather12:35
jimmywkidzeus: everything about macs scream finesse, my dad runs a digital imaging lab and they all use macs, he got a mac mini to see what its like, putting asside that its not a powerhouse ,its an incredible setup12:35
kidzeusexpose has changed the way I manouever. Seriously, every time I sit down at a non-mac, I click my middle mouse button and blink when the windows don't all shuffle into smaller versions.12:36
jimmywapokryphos: it was a pain in the ass to get nvidia to work with mdk12:36
kidzeusI like the latest gnome and kdes though. slick. and kde screams.12:36
jimmywkidzeus:  haha ,theres probably a medical term for that! :D12:36
apokryphosjimmyw: Ubuntu is the opposite. :) 12:36

dimmakyeah... i would love if windows tile feature didn't suck12:37
jimmyw44 mins til my iso is finished downloading :D12:37
dimmakbut kde is just fine for me12:37
apokryphoscool :)12:37
dimmakan expose port would be welcomed12:37
kidzeusbut I do have a problem burning cds. Apparently 2.6 kernel doesn't handle scsi emulation, which I didn't realize I needed. I downloaded three burning apps, including graveman, and I can't burn a disc12:37
kidzeusproblem with expose port is that expose uses mac's graphics core. so it doesn't actually bother the main processor. means I can watch video in one little window, or while it zooms in or out, and see everything in the other windows live with no slow down12:38
jimmywkidzeus:  ya try k3b?12:38

jimmywim reading really good reviews about kubuntu here12:40
takiman, I love how easy it is to switch between the two windows systems12:41
jimmywapokryphos: over here we are really lucky with the downloading of linux distros, HEA or higher education authority have huge servers of linux distros and they are really fast so we can download whatever flavour pretty quickly , i think the uk have a similar setup12:41
jimmywif you have ubuntu installed and then you decide to download kde for it, is it the same as kubuntu or no?12:42
apokryphosI'm not sure if we do, but that sounds really sweet12:42

apokryphosjimmyw: pretty much. There's a few kubuntu tweaks. See: www.ubuntulinux.org/wiki/installingKDE12:43

apokryphosNope, very easy. Takes the editing of one file and two commands.12:48
jimmywis the download big?12:49
apokryphosQuite, yes.12:49
apokryphosAround 500 megs, I'd guess at.12:49
jimmywoh right, so i might as well just wait for kubuntu to download :D12:49

takino prob. I found 'em in /var/cache/apt/archives/12:57
jimmywso you can put in your burned cd , add the path to synaptic and just reinstall em all?12:57
takiwith synaptic you just make sure not to select clean cache immediately.12:58
takiyeah, synaptic has that option where you add resources. you can add a cd12:58
takihaven't tried it yet12:58
jimmywthats brillaitn12:58
jimmywbrilliant even12:58
takiand kubuntu has kynaptic. don't see a tab or button or option for modifying sources there, though12:59
LeeJunFankynaptic blows - use synaptic.12:59
takiI run synaptic from kde in a terminal, though. if you don't have it default, I suppose you can download it12:59
LeeJunFanor better yet - just use apt-get12:59
jimmywLeeJunFan:  can ya use synaptic with kubuntu ?12:59
apokryphosKynaptic is pretty primitive at the mo.12:59
jimmywor does it just allow kynaptic?12:59
LeeJunFanjimmyw: sure can. you can use any of ubuntu12:59
takiyeah, will probably switch to apt-get. but seems more complicated for doing things like setting the resource to a cd12:59
LeeJunFanjimmyw: open konsole, sudo apt-get install synaptic01:00
=== MindZEye makes a promise to himself to look at the Kynaptic code.
takiso will upgrading to the final version of hoary require anything more than apt-get installing?01:00
jimmywLeeJunFan: thanks! , i dont mean to be smart , but i think il be on this chan quite a bit when im finding my feet with kubuntu01:01
LeeJunFantaki: actually I found editing /etc/apt/sources.list to be easier. Just one line to change then, not 10 boxes.01:01
apokryphostaki: apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade. Nothing more.01:01
LeeJunFanjimmyw: it's worth it. I just switched from mandrake a couple days ago.01:01
LeeJunFanjimmyw: I've been running Mandrake for about 6 yrs and redhat for a couple before that. They both stink.01:01
jimmywLeeJunFan: great , cos im using mdk10.1 at the mo, well whatya think ?01:01
LeeJunFanjimmyw: compared to ubuntu anyway. I just didn't like the path they were taking with their overbranding and customizing.01:02
LeeJunFanjimmyw: now I just have to upgrade my servers to ubuntu.01:02
jimmywyeah thats why i said i think mdk is too cumbersome, its like a corporate gleam over linux or something01:03
takithank lee and apok for the two heads-ups. I suppose I should have realized that I could add the cd into sources.list. that's where I changed my settings anyway. what's the syntax for adding the cd?01:03
LeeJunFanjimmyw: yep, and they are getting more and more corporate-anal every day. I've contributed to cooker for as long as I've used mandrake, and 10.2 was just too much crap for me.01:03
jimmywoh thats another thing, i have my samba server setup in mdk, using swat , in xandros it came preconfigured and was childsplay to change, whats kubuntu like for setting up swat?01:04
jimmywLeeJunFan: i installed 10.2 rc about a week ago and immediately got rid, didnt like it at all01:04
LeeJunFanjimmyw: swat and webmin are only an apt-get away. ;)01:04
takiI'm going to have to start hunting for how to set up my linux so I can see my powerbook and vice versa. do I need to make use of samba? totally clueless.01:05
jimmyweggs cellent :D01:05
LeeJunFanjimmyw: yeah, I wanted a sleeker less adulterated linux. And the article for ubuntu/kubuntu just happened to be on slashdot when I was looking for a debianlike distro.01:05
jimmywtaki:  there is an apple share, ive never used it but webmin lets you set it up01:05
LeeJunFantaki swat will be a big help - Samba has SOOO many options.01:06
jimmywLeeJunFan: i had half if mepis downloaded but stopped cos i read better things about ubuntu, and then kubuntu01:06

takithe k7 optomized kernel... make a noticeable difference?01:09

apokryphosWell, Gentoo is the largest out there, IIRC. :P01:10

wkennygot a quick question about sudo in kubuntu... I just installed the kubuntu preview release of hoary... it is asking for a password for sudo whereas the regular ubuntu doesn't... do I need to configure something for it?01:11
takiRegular ubuntu does ask. Unless you open a root terminal01:11
LeeJunFanwkenny: it sure does. use your user pass.01:11
wkennyaaah, okay, thanks01:11

_bI'm talking about the server list, apokryphos -- that's what I'm asking.  with x-chat i didn't have to go googling or whatever for server names and channels01:16
takiOkay, before I go to konvi, I get a message at the end of the webmin install. saying it uses a seperate password file, and that a root password was generated frm that file. but when I open the file in an editor, I see nothing01:16
_bas I guess I have to do... 01:16
_bwith Konversation01:16
LeeJunFanjimmyw: Mandrake was always doing something stupid that caused me grief - one was ifplug, I love having a server that reset all my routes and what not because a switch lost power or a machine it was crossed over to got rebooted. Just lame.01:16
jimmywLeeJunFan: member you said mdk was becoming really corporate? well i just remebered we had a "linux event" in our college run my mdk and they gave away free cd's of mdk 10.1 and quick start guide, they are really chasing down the market01:17
apokryphos_b: Ubuntu has a server list. Don't know why you have to go Googling... Freenode is pretty much the only one to use.01:17
LeeJunFanjimmyw: of course it only took 1-2 times before I decided I better either get rid of it or learn to configure it, but that was just ONE thing.01:17
apokryphos*Konversation, not Ubuntu01:17
jimmywtaki: with webmin you can use root as user and yer root pass and pass01:17

jimmywooh 2:30 left , blank cd is in the burner, k3b is open... im all prepped hehe01:18
_bmaybe you haven't used x-chat and don't know what I'm referring to01:18
LeeJunFantaki: yeah, only the way ubuntu doesn't setup a root password your root pass in webmin after setup will be disabled. you'll have to cut/paste your root passwd from /etc/shadow to /etc/webmin/miniserv.users01:18
apokryphos_b: I have used it. When did I deny that it says Freenode? I'm lost.01:18
apokryphosYou seem to be complaining because Konversation doesn't automatically come with a list of servers, right?01:19
jimmywLeeJunFan: thats weird, how come webmin doesnt have root login as default?01:19
_bjesus, apokryphos , scroll up if you care.  X-chat comes with a very large list of servers.  A newbie doesn't have to add stuff; konversation just presents me with blanks to fill in.01:19

takiHow do I open webmin? I can't seem to find it01:20
LeeJunFanjimmyw: by default it takes the one from the system when you set it up - only in ubuntu root passwd is * (disabled) by default. Which is why you have to use sudo, and sudo -s to get a root shell.01:20
jimmywoh right ,sorry01:20
trans_errtaki: localhost:1000001:20
apokryphos_b: Well geez, I'm sorry to hear that it's so terribly user-unfriendly because it doesn't give you a list of servers. 01:20
jimmywtaki go to web browser type https://localhost:1000001:20
LeeJunFanjimmyw: if you set a root password before installing webmin it should use that ok.01:21
apokryphosSpeaking of user-unfriendliness.. I don't see all these button options on the side of xchat with Whois, Version, Kick, Part, Ban, Quit etc...01:21
jimmywLeeJunFan: i think i better do that, the lads i live with arent that gentle with pc's :)01:21
apokryphosthough admittedly it does it differently ;)01:22
_byes, apokryphos , I "seem" to be noting that fact yes; no "seems" about it; that was what I said.  Very simple.  Doesn't start with a list of servers.  Simple fact.  If it's preferable to you that that is so, great.  Works for you.  For me xchat was much more convenient.  You are way too defensive about apps beginning with "k".01:22
LeeJunFanhey, what do I press to "start"? There's a K where my "start" usually is and I don't dare press it because I think it means "K"ill. :)01:22
apokryphos_b: Way to defensive? I think it's a wholly ungrounded to critisize Konversation as necessarily unfriendly because it doesn't give you a list of servers.01:23
takiOkay, I didn't set a root password, and I'm unsure what to do now. and it says the host has been blocked due to too many unauthorized attempts01:23
apokryphosHow does the newbie know to go on Freenode, even when it's presented there?01:23
_bI was talking about newbies to irc, apokryphos .  I don't need to be a power user, I need to find channels. Which I'm googling for now, since evidently my original, simple request for help was apparently inappropriate here.01:24
apokryphosa newbie to IRC will emphatically NOT know that Freenode is gonna be the channel they're likely to spend 99% of their time on.01:24
_bI didn't say it was "unfriendly" apokryphos , lighten up, would you?  I said I preferred xchat, for my needs.01:24
jimmywooh im burning now , yesh yesh!01:24
jimmywLeeJunFan: you have a bluetooth phone?01:25
takiapokry, what was that you were saying about using sudo -s to open a root terminal? then what?01:25
apokryphos_b: "xchat lets a newbie just go ahead and use it, konversation has nothing but #kde on there". If you're not insinuating that it's user-unfriendly there, then..01:25
LeeJunFanI don't think computers should be user friendly. They should be productive, if you're too dumb to be productive then you don't need a computer. :)01:26
_bapokryphos: did I run over your cat or something? 01:26
apokryphostaki: you can just use sudo for any command you wanna do with root priveldges.01:26
takiI'm not down with that at all LeeJun. For 95% of computer users, they definitely need to be friendly. like a car or a toaster or any other appliance01:26
jimmywtaki: there might be a way to set root password from start menu, im not sure in ubuntu cos i havent used it, is there a control centre?01:26
takiNo, I mean for getting into webmin01:26
apokryphos_b: Not at all. Despite what you might think, I'm not anti-gnome or anti-gtk at all. I think some of their apps are great. When I think a criticism is unfair though, I'll explain why I think it is. :)01:27
takiyeah, it's there01:27
LeeJunFantaki: no they don't. Should we dumn down 747's too :)01:27
taki747s aren't for every home.01:27

taki747s are operated by specially trained folks because lives are at stake, and there's no way to really fix that well yet.01:27

jimmywthen set the root pass, webmin pass should be same, LeeJunFan  might be able to help you better,im not taht familiar with it01:28
LeeJunFantaki: exactly. Dumbing down a 747 would basically mean turning it into a cessena. We don't want a dumbed down linux with less "confusing" features, that's what windows is for. Linux is the 747.01:28
takicomputers, 90 some percent of the time, are for everyday people to help them do work or for entertainment. therefor they definitely should be made as easy to use as possible. I'm not saying don't have options for power users01:28
_bWho the heck is talking about gnome?  and I "insinuated" nothing.  I came here for help (to find out if there was a quick way to load a bunch of servers into the server list in one swoop)  and just got this tirade.01:28
apokryphostaki: sudo -s will have you in a root terminal01:28
LeeJunFantaki: ok. close enough.01:29
takiproblem is, webmin took its initial password from the alrady existant root password. which didn't exist. I gues I can reinstall it01:29
LeeJunFantaki: no need.01:29
LeeJunFantaki: sudo -s01:29
jimmywguys, thanks for all the help, ive just burned it, gonna install now,il be back in a while to give ya my first impressions :)  if yas are still here hehe01:30
apokryphos_b: hence the "anti-gtk" added in. I'm sorry, but you might have "just" come in for that, but... by the way, "insinuated nothing" is meaningless. You clearly did; I don't think you're in the business of making vacuous sentences, as I amen't.01:30
apokryphos_b: I answered your question that you can load a bunch of servers on startup...01:30
LeeJunFantaki: then vi /etc/shadow, copy the crap between the first and second : (that's your encrypted pass). Then :q to quit vi. Then vi /etc/webmin/miniserv.users press 'i' to enter insert mode - remove the * and paste your password in it's place.01:31
_bapokryphos: my original comment:  "Konversation seems ok, but I miss the pre-installed server list."  For that you act as if pulled out a flame thrower.01:31
takijimmy, how do I change root's password in Password & User Account? it only gives me the option for my regular login account01:31
apokryphos_b: That is not true. I made no response to that comment.01:31
_b"seems ok"  to mild praise for you?  Hey apokryphos , it's god's gift!  happy?01:31
apokryphosI never said that you hated it; I simply thought that your criticism of it was ungrounded. What's the big deal01:32
_bThere was no criticism, apokryphos , there was the comment that "I missed the server list."01:33
apokryphosKonversation is what does it for me; xchat does it for others. Whatever floats your boat.01:33
apokryphos_b: Again, as I said, I made no response to *that* comment.01:33
takiAh, didn't realize he vanished. LJF, do you know where I change the password for root?01:33
_bYes you did; you contradicted it, implying that Konversation was not lacking anything that x-chat had01:33
apokryphostaki: sudo passwd01:34
apokryphosContradicting it does not mean that I responded to it. Please check what I wrote; my response was to your, ""xchat lets a newbie just go ahead and use it, konversation has nothing but #kde on there"01:34
apokryphos_b: I have never said, nor implied, that konversation is not lacking anything that xchat has. I have no idea.01:34
_banyway, this is one way to keep me using the damn thing!  Instead of apt-getting x-chat, which I'm doing ... now-- gnight.01:34
_blord, apokryphos , get some sleep man.01:35
apokryphos_b: Good night :). I'm sorry for the hassle, but hey. ;)01:35

LeeJunFanyeah, look above.01:35
LeeJunFantaki: that's how you change the password in webmin anyway. if you just want to change the root password just do sudo passwd root01:36
LeeJunFantaki: but that won't change your webmin pass automatically.01:36
takileejunfan, sorry to be a bother, but when you say copy between first and second in shadow, I'm unclear on what is 'first' and what is 'second'01:37
LeeJunFantaki: first : and second : - the colons01:38
takiThanks. Unfortunately that doesn't seem to have worked. I believe from what it said at configuration that it takes the password from the .users file the first time it starts.01:41
LeeJunFantaki: grep ^kidzeus/etc/shadow | awk -F : '{print $2}'01:41
LeeJunFantaki: that'll print out your encrypted pass.01:41
LeeJunFantaki: assuming your username on the system we are talking about is kidzeus01:42
LeeJunFantaki: then take that and replace the * in /etc/webmin/miniserv.users where it says root:*01:43
takiSorry to be so clueless, but where does it print it? the terminal where I typed it in is just hanging01:44
LeeJunFantaki: ctrl-c01:44
LeeJunFantaki: it shouldn't. crap - there should be a space between ^kidzeus and /etc...01:45
takiright, that gets me out of the hang, but I still don't see the password. I had found it in the shadow file earlier. ah, okay. retry01:45

vishalquestion from a luser: i'm thinkin of moving from mandrake 10.0 to kubuntu when it releases, does it have GUI applets to config the system (like a 'control center')? or do i go to the shell to run scripts?03:31
vishalthe live CD didnt have any, and i read on the web that kubuntu doesnt yet have applets, but will ?03:31
Blissexvishal: it has several, both the same KDE one everybody hs, and some others.03:32

LeeJunFanregeya_: I'm probably just ranting because I'm on zero sleep. in about 40 hrs. T1's went down at 1 this morn, and my providers are lusers. :)03:58
=== regeya_ started with PCs and Apple IIs, chill
regeya_oooh suckage03:58
regeya_so, if your providers are at fault, how come you're not passed-out drunk? ;-)03:59
LeeJunFanregeya_: yeah, I told them what I thought was wrong, 10 hrs later they got it working, called me back and told me I was right. I'd really like to know how setting a route and filter can take 10 hrs when I told them what it was. :)03:59
=== regeya_ is joking, if you don't believe in getting drunk, I sympathise, actually
LeeJunFanregeya_: I've got kids - not a good example :)04:00
regeya_well, see, you told them, so they had to do everything they could to try to prove you weren't right. ;-) <- TEH VOICE OF EXPERIENCE04:00
LeeJunFanregeya_: hehe. That's probably it exactly.04:00
zerathaAll KDE based apps I install fail with a rather long, annoying error message. After installing kubuntu and logging into KDE I get this message: "Could not start process. Unable to create io-slave. Klauncher said Unknown protocol 'file'.04:01
regeya_ooh kids, eh?  will be in the same boat with you soon.  okay, must go, hasta, you fine kubuntu people04:01
vishalhey, whats present in the hoary preview install CD thats not there in the live CD? and is it safe to install over my mandrake dualboot with winxp?04:01
vishallater reg04:01
chavovishal, I'm pretty sure the install has the same setup.04:02
chavoAnd yes it's safe to install over your mandrake.04:02
LeeJunFanvishal: yep - just have it format your mdk partition. dont' forget to save important stuff.04:03
LeeJunFanzeratha: hold - on... I'm looking.04:03
zerathaLeeJunFan, Thanks!04:03
LeeJunFanzeratha: did this happen right away or was it working at first?04:04
LeeJunFanI mean have you logged in and used software successfully at all?04:05
zerathaNever has worked. Only on this system. It works fine on two others.04:05
smoucheok, real dumb question probably:  when stable hoary comes out, will simply dist-upgrading my system (hoary kubuntu) bring me up to speed, or will I have to update the kernel, or ...?04:05
LeeJunFansmouche: dselect upgrade04:06
LeeJunFanzeratha: hrm. So can you even log in to KDE all the way?04:06
smouchedselect-- what does that do exactly LeeJunFan?04:06
vishalhmm 'dist-upgrade' i need to learn debian... need to apt-get a life 8-P (/me ducks)04:06
LeeJunFanvishal: that'll almost accomplish the same thing.04:07

smouchethank you.04:08
LeeJunFanzeratha: have you tried logging on as another user? Do you have another user setup on your system?04:09
zerathaLeeJunFan, I'll try now, BRB04:09
LeeJunFanzeratha: I'm thinking tmpfile gone bad, if another user can log in that'll pretty much verify it.04:09

LeeJunFanthe ip addy on your eth0 is actually your Internet IP. It must bridge, so I don't see how we can have 2 machines using it at the same time unless your cable co gives you more than one IP#.02:13

randythe driver wasn't supported well in ndiswrapper10:54
randybut then i found a project for just my driver (rt2500.inf)10:54
randyand it works flawlessly10:54
randydo you use cedega?10:57
takinope. have a dual boot10:57
randyyou still use windows?10:58
takiI haven't for two years, but as of a few weeks ago, yeah. For games.10:58
takiI generally use os x for just about everything. But I wanted to check out Ubuntu after what I'd read10:59
randycedega is pretty freakin' awesome for games11:01
randyruns almost all the new stuff that comes out11:01
takiyeah, but I have optimized drivers for windows. and all the games definitely work. I may try cedega soon, though.11:02
randythere's only one software that i need windows for11:03
randyand that's macromedia flash11:03
randyand they are supposed to be coming out with a linux version of that due to massive requests by users11:03
takiI don't mind booting it up for games.11:04
