kitcheharisund: it might but ti should see ubuntu02:23
Sivikloper06: do a ls -al, it will tell you all the permissions for that file02:23

BrianGsethk: without sudo?02:58
SivikLstyWnch, as long as you chmod +x it, it should be fine02:58
LstyWnchSivik, it said no such file or directory02:58

jmerlin_opengl entrypoints and dx entrypoints in the video drivers are completely different06:40
jmerlin_your card supports the features of d3d directly if at all06:40

harisundHello! I have to compile a new kernel, but I don't have a fast enough machine ... Can I do the compilation on a faster machine and build it on the slower machine?07:40
RRubinArrenLex, holycow: basically the windows drivers check every 10 seconds that things are initted properly and reboot the video card if not. and the linux folk refuse to do that (nv driver) while the nvidia driver is broken with regard to swsuspend07:40
bronaughRoman_Logix: because DVI-I (which almost every card has) includes all the analog pins in addition to digital ones.07:40
holycowthats normal, most of that stuff is flaky as hardware companies don't really like working iwth us07:40

ArrenLexharisund: blender is a 3D animator\modeller. As you might imagine, the rendering of every single frame in a movie takes a while. So I wrote a program to make all computers in my network each render a part of the movie.07:54

O2I want to do C++ programming in ubuntu, I know I need gcc or else?09:20
ArrenLexHello, O2. I am the Lord Jesus Christ.09:20

harisundArrenLex: lol ... O2 you will need the g++ compiler. Best way would be to install a package called 'build-essential' using the package manager of your choice..09:20

=== tonyyaruso is now known as tonyyarusso
O2I apt-cache search gcc, g++.      and found many results, I wonder which should I get?09:21
harisundO2: you will probably also need make (if you know what it is, good. else ignore it). Either way, it helps to install teh build-essential package since it also installs all standard development related packages nad libraries.09:21
kalmhello all, How do i change the permissions of files from console 0_0 so that they are user readable and fully editable?09:21
ArrenLexO2: install build-essential. That'll get everything.09:21
melonok - i sort of already know the answer.. but figured i should ask anyway.. is it possible to run Gnome and KDE side by side and have the ability to switch from one to the other?09:21

harisundO2: apt-get install build-essential09:21
kalmi understand theres something to do with chmod09:21
O2Jesus ArrenLex, you are god!09:21
kalmbut i dont know the commands09:22
ArrenLexYes! :D09:22
harisundmelon: you can indeed..09:22
ArrenLexExcept it was suggested by someone else first. =P09:22

tonyyarussokalm: 'man chmod', although depending on the file you may not want to do that, and in those cases use sudo.09:22
O2oh, thanks!09:22

kalmthank you09:22
harisundkalm: do you own the file? And who all do you want it to be read by?09:22
meloni'm not one to get these things handed to me.. so i can just google this 'n find what i need yeah?09:22
=== cieffe [n=cieffe@] has joined #ubuntu
harisundmelon: KDE and Gnome can happily co-exist, and even run applications written for each other!09:23
kalmyes i own the file... its just i put the files on my home directory as root and theyre not accesible by me09:23

harisundkalm: then you need root permissions to modify it (sudo). You could do 'sudo chown kalm:kalm file_name" to make it your file again.09:24
ArrenLexharisund: I think (s)he's looking for the equivalent of "fast user switching" on Linux for DEs. Does this exist?09:24
kalmthank you09:24
melonpretty much what i mean ArrenLex09:24
melonalthough - i'm beginning to think it's just unnecessary09:24
harisundArrenLex: oh good point ... now that's a thought ... I only know of logging off and logging on .. perhaps you could run a Gnome session on vt7 and a KDE session on vt8 ... but I doubt that would be a very good idea..09:24
harisundmelon: yeah .. it is .. you could pick a single window manager/desktop environment.. and customize it to suit your needs.. and then run all kinds of apps in it.09:25
