mrpicklesis there anyone willing to spend some of their time to help me ?03:28
mebaran151that I think they are only available for 32 bits at the moment03:28

Amaranthmebaran151: Yeah, if they work in hoary on AMD64 it's a miracle.03:29
Kyral64bit, sorry can't help you03:29
mebaran151and my favorite thing is to run Linux 64 bit edition .... (someone will die one day because of that choice)03:29
Amaranthmebaran151: The 1.1.x versions that breezy has are _a lot_ better.03:29
mebaran151IO dont wnat to write a JIT compiler my self03:29
mebaran151but do they run 64 bits03:29
mebaran151if I write a program in mono though03:29
mebaran151I would need to cross compile it03:29
aruhow do you tell which kernel version you have?03:30
mebaran151to run it on 32 bits right?03:30
b0urn3i had upgraded to a new video card when i was still using windows...but when i tried to use windows the video card pulled too much power and the monitor wouldn't work (running on an old dell dimension)...if i use the driver from nvidia will i start drawing too much power again?03:30
mebaran151or is the intermediate language it uses abstract enough that architecture differences disappear03:30

MrJanglesmy gnome terminal wont open, is there anyway to change the settings without opening it?03:32
aioMrJangles what happens when you try to open it?03:32
rc51woodycan you install windows xp as a 2nd OS if you already have Ubuntu installed?03:32
MrJanglescloses right away03:32
mebaran151Amaranth, yep it does03:32
mebaran151but when I run the compiler03:33
MrJanglesi think its got to do with the bg image i chose03:33
mebaran151it isnt like compiling C right03:33
pepsixMrJangles, gconf-editor?03:33
mebaran151I read it uses an intermediate language03:33
zukalkb0urn3, can't you plug your monitor directly to the current, without using the PC?03:33
Amaranthit's compiled down to CIL03:33
mebaran151that is kind of like Java bytecode03:33
aioMrJangles what if you run an xterm, then try to run a gnome terminal03:33
tiglionabbitrc51woody: yes you can, but you'll have to restore grub after you do it03:33
Amaranthso that .exe will run anywhere mono runs03:33
mebaran151I could never get bytecode to port correctly03:33
mebaran151is it fast though03:33

aiomebaran151 which one?03:34

mebaran151it looks like a pretty powerful language03:34
tiglionabbitguys, don't just say something sucks, tell us why03:34
Amaranthaio: Either one.03:34
mebaran151Java I dont like03:35
tiglionabbitAdross: know the device name?03:35
mebaran151but I know it can be used03:35
Amaranthaio: I've used both and they both have their place.03:35
mebaran151I am thinking of developing in C#03:35
tiglionabbitAdross: mount /dev/sda4 /somewhere03:35
MrJangleshmm, i can launch it from xterm03:35
mebaran151and hooking it all up with ruby03:35
aioAmaranth java sucks because 1) you've got sun behind it and no single strong open source alternative.03:35
MrJanglesbut it goes to root terminal03:35
tiglionabbitAdross: make the /somewhere any directory you want, but it must exist and be empty03:35

pgavinmebaran151, uhh, not really, there is an open source implementation, tho03:36
pepsixMrJangles, you can change the background image in gconf-editor03:36
Amaranthaio: 1) sun isn't that bad and 2) the gcj and classpath guys would like you saying that03:36
Adrossi was putting -ext3 in there03:36
aioAmaranth 2) trying to actually *do* anything is a pain in the butt.  do you actually remember how to open a file and read lines from it from memory?03:36

MrJanglesi'm looking, i dont think i can03:36
mebaran151pgavin, that is like saying UNIX is not open source right now, but FreeBSD is an open source implementation03:36
aioAmaranth 3) java is virtually unusable without an IDE with lots of bells and whistles03:36
[koji] aio: sun's may not be but the platform is thriving03:36
mebaran151to me, if it has a free implementation, it is free enough03:36

=== Arkainium [~mark@pool-70-107-113-126.ny325.east.verizon.net] has joined #ubuntu
aioAmaranth 4) it is *way* too strongly typed despite what they are tying to accomplish in version 503:37
pgavinmebaran151, but there are multiple open source implementations of unix that can be used as a reference03:37
Will_It's easy to code java without an ide03:37
tiglionabbitAdross: um, if you mount a partition as /home it should replace it, but you wont be able to access the things in there anymore.  You should set it in your fstab03:37
mebaran151why cant we use Mono.net as a reference03:37
Will_Unless you count vim as an ide03:37
goatseubuntu doesnt like my laptop =(03:37
mebaran151once the project matures a little more03:37
mebaran151it seems it will be reference enoguh03:37
tiglionabbitgoatse: and I don't like your website03:37
aiomebaran151 c# sucks because 1) its primary patron is Microsoft.  this is a good thing but the negative, i think, outweigh it.03:37

MrJanglesi can change the default one, but not the one for my profile03:38
aiomebaran151 3) same thing goes for c# as java on static typing03:38
Amaranthunless you need security zones or System.Windows.Forms03:38

mebaran151and C# looks sort of neet03:40
aioAmaranth deployed to BEA03:40
MrJangleshmm, it might not have to do with the bg image.. it opens, it displays everything for a split second, and closes03:40
MrJanglesany ideas?03:40
aioAmaranth ummm....no - java just sucks.  i could've had a bigger part of the dev work, but i didn't want to work with java.03:40
mebaran151so what do you guys think I should use03:41
aioMrJangles did you try the xterm thing?03:41
mebaran151I want to build a pretty complex web application03:41
rainingzigzagscan ubuntu be installed on a modded xbox?03:41
MrJanglesyes, and it opens the terminal, but as root03:41
mebaran151I prototyped in Ruby which is uber neat03:41
AmaranthThe most I've ever done with Java is bugfixes on a project, so I can't argue there.03:41
pgavinthe OSS implementation of C# isn't any better than any OSS implementation of Java, and all of them are incomplete and of limited utility atm03:41
mebaran151all of you should try it; one of the more sensibly designed language03:41
aioMrJangles any errors?03:41
AmaranthBut I've done some work with C# and it's not bad at all.03:41
aiomebaran151 i'd take a peek at python03:41
mebaran151I know python03:41
AmaranthI prefer Python and always will but C# has a place.03:41
mebaran151I hate python03:41
mebaran151because Ruby can do eveyrthing python can do03:41
MrJanglesbut i cant run a terminal unless i'm root03:41
mebaran151except it feels better thought out03:42

pgavinmebaran151, well, both are turing complete :)03:42

MrJanglesi can open the root terminal fine03:42
mebaran151pgavin, yep both are turing complete03:42
aioMrJangles yeah - what?03:42
Amaranthpgavin: Mono is more than complete enough to be usable.03:42
MrJanglesbut the regular terminal will not open03:42
mebaran151I woudl hope03:42
MrJanglesit closes right away03:42
tiglionabbitMrJangles: right-click your desktop and click on "launch terminal"03:42
aioMrJangles can you open xterm as non-root?03:42
mebaran151crimsun, but I think Ruby has a better design03:42
tiglionabbitMrJangles: oh, okay, you must have done something to your .bashrc03:42
Amaranthmebaran151: You think _Ruby_ is better thought out?03:42

aiomebaran151 then i found Python and haven't looked back since.03:44
mebaran151I tried python03:44
scspongerKyral... it worked I can see I have a blank disc in my drive... but I still can't seem to burn a cd03:44
mebaran151the problem for me was whitespacing03:44
mebaran151I love to put in random indents03:44

scspongeraio yes that is correct03:46
mebaran151worth learning03:46
mebaran151it also looks enterprise friendly03:46
Amaranthmebaran151: It is, but I always end up turning back to Python.03:46
scspongerthe cd/dvd creator will not let me burn03:46
aioscsponger i had the same problem the past couple days.03:46
Amaranthmebaran151: But it's nice to put on a resume that I know C#. :)03:46
tiglionabbitMrJangles: I'd suggest you try and login as a normal user from the virtual terminal.  Does it give any odd messages other than the MOTD?03:46
mebaran151I think Ruby and Python are comparable03:46

rainingzigzagshow do i check dns settings in this distro?03:47
scspongerit asks me to insert a 108MB?  disc03:47
mebaran151one,the guy who needs the code needs it to be closed src03:47

MrJanglesi can run a terminal from another account03:47
alxwindis it available through synaptic?03:47
aioscsponger that's a little comforting that it may not be my hardware :-)03:47
MrJanglesits only the account i'm in03:47

scspongeraio... haha03:47
aioscsponger doesn't do that for me.03:47
tiglionabbitMrJangles: definately your .bashrc03:47
MrJangleswhen i changed the settings around to customize it, it wont open03:47
mebaran151a hacked on Object oriented extension03:47
scspongeraio... oh? not anymore?03:47
Amaranthmebaran151: btw, you actually liked perl?03:47
MrJangleshow can i fix it?03:47
mebaran151it was usable03:47
Amaranthmebaran151: I liked it until I got up to about 500 lines of code.03:47
Vortacistalxwind: Probably, although I haven't used it on Ubuntu (just other Linuxes). You'd have to check.03:47
scspongeraio.. did you change anything?03:47
mebaran151you need to write over 1000 lines03:48
mebaran151and then you go03:48
mebaran151hey, I can get this03:48
alxwindok, ty03:48
tiglionabbitsay MrJangles, can you Applications -> run application -> "xterm" ?03:48
Vortacistalxwind: You're welcome.03:48
mebaran151at 500 lines I was angry too03:48
aioscsponger yeah - i rebooted couple times and it started behaving a little better, but i'm still concerned it may happen smoe more...03:48
Amaranthyou write over 1000 lines and then you go "wtf does this do?" and then you stab yourself03:48
mebaran151but if you get in the mind set03:48
MrJanglesxterm is fine, root termianl is fine03:48
xuniluseri can't i play mp3 files in my new ubuntu 5.0.403:48
mebaran151it is just like any other language03:48

tiglionabbitMrJangles: but gnome-terminal messes up?03:48
mebaran151Amaranth, I have two key problems03:48
mebaran151for this current project03:48
MrJanglesit opens and closes right away03:48
tiglionabbitMrJangles: open xterm as you, and run gnome-terminal from it.  Any messages?03:48
Amaranthgood python code practically reads like psuedo-code03:48

MrJanglesit wont give me an option\03:49
mebaran151obfuscate my code03:49
MrJangleslet me log in and out again and try it03:49
mebaran151so that it can be part of this closed source deal03:49

calcREds: they recommend you use dist kernels instead06:07
