LjLpiwi: it's simpler than it might look. there is a file, /etc/apt/sources.list , that contains a list of places your system is going to download packages from. the "universe" and "multiverse" places are not enabled by default, for various reasons, so you need to add them manually. you can do that using Synaptic, as those pages say, or you can edit /etc/apt/sources.list directly, and possibly use the !easysource information from Ubotu to change it01:13

guest128If I want to uninstall some default packages that I don't use (like totem player) but it says that I also have to unistall 'ubuntu-desktop', that seems kind of... important to have. How can I get around that?01:59
jrib!ubuntu-desktop01:59
ubotuk/e/x/ubuntu-desktop is a metapackage. It depends upon other packages and brings them in; you can safely remove it, but it is recommended that you re-install it when upgrading.01:59
MiguelitoI'm trying to fetch modproxy for apache from apt- but I can't find it, dunno if it's my repositories or what, I'm doing apt-cache search proxy|grep apache and nothing, I mean, only the proxy_html, but no modproxy, any help?01:59

LjLguest128: it's basically an empty package that just lists a ton of packages as dependencies, so that when you install it, all those packages will get installed. but unless you're using an APT frontend such as aptitude, uninstalling it will not uninstall anything else02:00

The parser is fairly liberal and allows lower or upper case, and also abbreviations such as "<Ctl>" and "<Ctrl>".

ader10Hello everybody. I am trying to install ubuntu version 6.06 LTS for my 64-bit pc and everything goes alright until I edit partitions or until it actually starts copying files. I would be grateful for any help given.03:43
ttyfsckercan someone here help me with this problem that is likely to be unfixable atm?  i have a Logitech Quickcam notebook pro with the usb ID 046d:08c3..   I have had no luck with pwc, usbcam, quickcam, or any of the other drivers that are thought of to work.   I find it very troublesome to switch to winXP to just do a video conference, and buying a different camera is not in question.. can anyone help?03:43
carthikmister_roboto, but there was a command that would allow me to "refresh" without logging out... like the bash "source" command, you know.03:43
mister_robotocarthik: you might be thinking of "newgrp"03:43

Warbo[Phenom] : Did you say this was on the CD or on an installation?06:40
skormhehehe06:40
[Phenom] CD installation06:41
jiShfrogzoo: what exactly do you mean "fowarded to computer". the ports are opened, and set for the static ip of 192.168.0.101, which is assigned to my computer in my ubuntu netowkr settings as well06:41
DenyerecSo that apache's file creation mode is rw-rw-r-- or rwxrwxr--   Now someone suggested mod_umask but there is precisely NO documentation for this anywhere so I couldn't get anywhere with it.06:41
jamesstansellDenyerec: the CMS may have a configuration option; that would probably be better than a system-wide change06:41
skormWho wants to help me setup my ubuntu ircd/http server as a shell provider?06:41
Warbo[Phenom] : I meant are you booting from the CD or from your hard drive?06:41

scabootsscahow do i add my windows harddrive to grub? i've seen the wiki posting cause when i try to change the path to it hdb dosnt work does anyone know why?06:42
Oni-DraculajiSh, an explaination of port forwarding is basically your router does not show each computer connected to it on the internet, therefore the router must forward port requests to specific computers on the network06:42
Warbo[Phenom] : OK, that is pretty bad then, since there is no normal GRUB boot screen on the CD (so you can't fiddle with the config)06:42
PORDODOES UBUntu use a condorcet voting method for choosing things?06:42
ZambeziWhich is the best torrentclient with configurationspossiblies?06:42
skormjiSh, some routers/modems, can't handle alot of connections, because of there smmall amnount of cpu/memory06:42
[Phenom] :|06:43
mister_robotoDenyerec: isn't apache2ctl the program to run when it's getting started?  you could always throw an "echo i am here" in there to see where it's running.   hmmmm mod_umask sounds like just the ticket if you can figure it out!  ;)06:43
