mdkestephen_, you can try right clicking on media files and select "open with". maybe that will have a way for you to set mplayer as default12:06

alitoch(since the language you use is cross-platform, like C, C++ or Python)12:10

stephen_I do Not KNow03:13

crimsunturf: did you install ntp-server?03:13
turfi mean during start up ntp is syncronizing my clock setting to ntp.ubuntulinux.org i want to disable03:14
turfi think so03:14
crimsunturf: sudo aptitude remove ntpdate03:14
turfwhere do i edit ntp?03:14
siimoturf, just remove ntpdate  :-/ thats what i did it03:14
stephen_how i get steam on ubuntu03:14
siimocause it kept setting my clock 1 hr behind local time03:15
siimoubuntu timeserver is broken03:15
turfbut i'll be using it sync to our own ntp server, is it ok to remove it?03:15
crimsunsiimo: your hardware clock is set to UTC?03:15
siimocrimsun, no and thats what i selected in the installer03:16
crimsunturf: ok, so you want to keep the program but prevent it from running at boot?03:16
mwyldethe hashes are the same03:16
turfcrimsun: yap!03:16
crimsunturf: then, sudo update-rc.d -f ntpdate remove03:16
crimsunturf: you don't need to remove the package, just run the above command03:16
siimocrimsun, and since then my local time has changed only last week but havent bothered reinstalling ntp to check if ubuntus server is fixed it wasnt till 2 weeks ago03:17
stephen_how i get steam on ubuntu03:17
turfcrimsun: got it thanks!03:17
crimsunsiimo: have you informed Kamion of that issue in the installer?03:17
mwyldeSince the hashes are the same (and thus not a corrupt file), does anyone knwo what the problem might be?03:17
siimocrimsun, what issue?03:18
siimocrimsun, i think its the time server's fault not installers, same thing happened on warty03:18
hou5ton??  would it be a bad idea to go ahead and uncomment the "hoary-updates main restricted" lines in sources.list ... or should I wait until hoary is final?03:18

crimsunPacoBCN: does /proc/cpuinfo tell you 2 cpus?03:57
bluefoxicyshank_:  but if you free the memory at the end of the heap, the allocator will brk() the heap down and the kernel will reclaim it.03:57

AbsenthPacoBCN, if you're running warty, you're probibly looking for something like "kernel-image-2.6.7-1-68603:59
shank_bluefoxicy, so what are you suggesting, that firefox should free its memory in some specific fashion?03:59
PacoBCNNo, I'm running hoary03:59
bluefoxicyshank_:  absolutely not.03:59
shank_then what's this "my design"?03:59
bluefoxicyshank_:  I'm suggesting glibc be rewritten with a new allocator to back malloc() and new[] 03:59
DakPowersstang: It's a new monitor, capable of 1280x1024... But I only set it to accept 1024x768 and under04:00
PacoBCNBut I'm affraid that if I install linux-image-2.6.10-5-686 I'll have problems at boot04:00

stangDakPowers: Then that's not your problem... I once used an old old old IBM monitor and Red Hat used too large of a resolution by default.04:01
stangBut this isn't your problem04:01
bluefoxicyshank_:  allocating everything by mmap() is evil as well, btw.  Allocating a big 4M chunk by mmap() and making it share multiple pieces of memory as requested by malloc() allows you to free that chunk when it's empty04:01
PacoBCNAbsenth, thanks, it's just because I remember once I upgraded the kernel, created a new entry in grub and couldn't boot with the new one04:01
nismicahf: mount -t proc none /mnt/hda5/proc && chroot /mnt/hda5 /bin/bash (where hda5 is the gentoo volume u could boot directly into from yaboot)04:01
DakPowersBut I only set it to accept 1024x768 during installation, it'll still do larger?04:01
stangI'm learning like you... one of these other guys will have your answer though... just get their attention04:01
stangNo, I think your resolution is fine04:01
bluefoxicyshank_:  so 1 segment per 4M, rather than 1 segment per allocation (a bad alternative to the current design) or 1 giant heap per everything in the universe (the horrid current design)04:01
DakPowersAnyone else ever have resolution problems?04:02

PacoBCNAbsenth, so I will probably wait until next fresh installation, when Hoary will be release, but opens a window of hope in performances to know that it might speed up with this specific kernel04:02

tomas-if i decide to have non-GPL commercial software utilize GPL software (such as a web application using some third-party perl libraries), and decide to bundle those libraries with the software purely for convenience upon the end-user (who might not know how to do installs of third-party software), and NOT because of intent to sell any part of the GPL software, would this be a problem?07:05

claintbob2: i had also edited XF86Config.......07:24
bob2tomas-: the benefit is supposed to b ethat it encourages proprietary software vendors to Free their software so they can make use of cool GPL libraries07:24

Skaaai used an install cd07:44
Tuggif the big nix's like redhat, debian, suse never contributed back then we wouldnt be using ubuntu today07:44
JimbobSkaaa: OK, put the CD you used into the machine07:44
claintbob2: ok, now to come back to the XF86Config thingie. you have said that the hoary doesnt use it. seems like my warty's not using it as well. so where/how do you set your resolutions/X now?07:45

Skaaaoh wait now, it didnt find the boot CD either, my mother board is having a problem im guessing07:45
tomas-yeah, its purely linking, but where do you draw the line? can it be distributed in the same binary .tgz file? can it reside in the same directory on the server? must it be different servers? no matter what, there is no MORE profit taken from the work that the original authors of the GPL software did, whether bundled in the same downloadable file versus installed from separate files, separate servers07:45
Skaaathis is a harware issue i think07:45
claintbob2: or could you give me a link.... about it.07:45
JimbobSkaaa: Hrm, sounds like.07:45
stephen_hi, how do i mount my usb hard drive?07:45
stephen_it's a USB HD07:45
Tuggtomas-, you dont have to bundle it you just have to offer it07:45
JimbobSkaaa: (of course, I've no idea :-))07:45
tomas-Tugg, yeah well then why not make it easy for all the software people at microsoft to start up their own small businesses using GPL?07:45
tomas-Tugg, huh?07:46

JimbobSkaaa: where "working" == "booting into linux"?07:46
=== stephen_ is now known as LinUXo
bob2tomas-: it's believed that linking crosses that line, but it hasn't yet gone to court, so no one really knows07:46

crimsunstephen__: pmount stuff07:47
crimsunstephen__: or just plug it in07:48

Tuggthats why companies like netgear are in getting sued by the FSF, because they used GPL code and dont release the source07:48

stephen__Of CouRsE nOt it never Has only in XP07:49
stephen__i dont know that STUFF07:49
tomas-Tugg, so netgear releasing the source of the GPL stuff they have, or their OWN proprietary work?07:49
bob2stephen__: please chill out07:49
stephen__K07:49
bob2claint: it turns out to not be as good an idea as you'd think07:49
Tuggtomas-, if you dont like the gpl then dont use the software, just like I dont like how microsoft puts limits on the use of there software, so I dont use it07:49
claintgeneral questions then: in warty, would anyone care to guess why i get different lowres that i have in my XF86Config file? I have updated ...07:49

bob2tomas-: they comply with the GPL by releasing any GPL software they modify or link with07:50
JimbobSkaaa: Hit enter07:50
Skaaai passed it before, now its doing expert07:50

JimbobSkaaa: Anyways, when you get to the little "busybox#" prompt on the F2 console, lemme know07:50

nix000bob2, what is the issue(s) ?07:51
Skaaai think im there....07:51
claintDr_Willis: it is warty.07:51
Tuggif you use program foo then write program bar to work along side it (with out changing foo) then you can keep bar but you have to release foo07:51
Skaaait says "Load SCSI Modules?"07:51
stephen__yeah07:51
stephen__bob2 yeah07:51
Skaaaand then enter full file names, etc07:51
claintDr_Willis: since everyone has gone hoary it was probably a mistake installing warty.07:51
JimbobSkaaa: Ok, hit CTRL+ALT+F207:51
JimbobSkaaa: Is your HD an IDE or SCSI07:52
Jimbob?07:52
stephen__i was here before cuz of it and i wrote it down but it gone now. IT involded a folder i created called windows, sda5, ntfs07:52
nix000bob2, even rational clearcase uses a db i heard . and its a darn prove it works to me.07:52
bob2stephen__: does the disk have NTFS or HFS filesystems?07:52
Skaaauhhhh07:52
Skaaanot sure07:52
Dr_Willisa usb drive should show up (check dmesg output) as a scsi device. ie : sdb, sdc, and so on..  you should be able to manually mount the thing wherever you want.   the auto-mounting serivices may be getting confused.07:52
stephen__NtFs07:52
bob2nix000: rational is kinda massively over-engineered, tho07:52
Skaaabut alt ctrl f2 did not give response07:52

Liberal_Tugboatthat is the DRI driver08:10
nix000lol08:10
corzaumm taht changes u to root stephen08:10
arnaudok, but the free one08:10
JimbobSkaaa: Typically on a fresh install it'll be in /dev/hda1 (the first partition on the first drive)08:10
Skaaadidnt really do anything08:10
corzait changes from normal user to root08:10
Liberal_Tugboatwhy do you need to switch?08:10
Skaaaread the drive for a while, i could tell by the sound it made, then nothing happened08:10

stephen__ya i can access my hd from terminal08:10
JimbobSkaaa: Yeah, in linux shells, silence == success08:10
corzastephan__: yes08:10
arnaudLiberal_Tugboat, because some things work with fglrx driver, and some only with kernel's dri08:10
