intelikeySlackRat but that doesn't help if you have the updates and security repos enabled  you will always have to dl the latest.    (always until EOL)01:34
SlackRatyou should consider debian when etch is released, one dvd thousands of pkgs......ubuntu uses many of the same tools01:34

Jucatoflaccid0es: your concept of quality seems to be based on "perfect/no errors"03:45
SolidSourceSolaris444: well, your host machine has to have the profile with the exact same username/passsword and then use smbpasswd to declare that user is allowed that access in samba03:45

DaSkreechBSD fan I take it :)03:46
Dr_williswhiz2,  i normally ssh to the linux box, run vncserver as the user.. then run the vncslient on the windows box and connect to the linux machine.03:46
SolidSourceSolaris444: so if your username = RedBurn and password = money34...then each machine would have to have that exact same in order not to be asked for a password03:46
whiz2ok, but i dunno how to do any of that03:46
Dr_williswhiz2,  that gives you a 'desktop in the background' :)03:46
Dr_williswhiz2,  which part? its rather straight forward..03:46
Solaris444But I don't have to log in as that user right?03:46
whiz2can i controll the linux box from the win32 client cmputer?03:47
Dr_williswhiz2,  vnc can show you a 'desktop' in a window.. correct..03:47
whiz2What do I install, where do i put it, and how do i configure it?03:47
Dr_willisvnc on linux can also have several 'background' desktops that are not seen by anyone sitting in front of the linux box03:47
ubotuVNC is a protocol for remote desktop. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH describes how to use it securely.  It works best over fast connections, otherwise look at !FreeNX03:47

rob__we use solaris, and our instrucor made a batch file to run for compiling so i don't know what goes on behind the scenes of that file08:37
Jucatorob__: anyway, the command to compile something using g++ normally is "g++ source_code.cpp -o executable_filename" where source_code.cpp is your C++ source code, and executable_filename is the name you want to give to the executable file that is produced08:37

n4chttuco: you know why that is?   because linux isn't windows.  linux will say "here's a device.  let's use that.  we'll ignore the other one unless you explicitly tell me to."    simple solution is that if you want a pci audio device to be detected, turn -off- your on-board audio in your bios settings prior to installation.10:41
phobiacOkay. I need an opinion here. When my computer boots up, all keyboard function until kubuntu boots is gone (I can't press escape at the grub menu), and once kubuntu boots i have keyboard control but no mouse function.10:41

phobiacI'm thinking the computer itself is messed up, considering I have no keyboard before kubuntu even boots.10:41
n4chtlinux, when deciding which audio device to use, makes no assumptions.  it simply uses the first one available, which is always the onboard if it's not disabled.10:41
n4chtphobiac: usb or ps/2?10:41

tucoI know n4cht it isn't windows thank you. I am just bluffled because the audigy is listed, levels master and pcm and the rest all up, mute unticked etc. I am new to Linux but not that thick, just bluffled!10:41

phobiacI'm considering just buying a new computer. This isn't the first major issue I've had with it.10:48
n4chtphobiac: it's probably the bios, but once you boot into ubuntu, you should have full keyboard control unless 1) the keyboard is physically damaged somehow or 2) you selected the wrong keyboard type during install.10:48
n4chtphobiac: if you do that, ship me the laptop.  lol.  i could always use a new paperweight.  :D10:48
phobiacn4cht: It was working just moments ago, until I rebooted.10:48
phobiacn4cht: I plan on trying to fix it in my spare time. :P It has some sentimental value.10:48
n4chtyikes.  so it just stopped letting you have control of the keyboard -recently- ?10:48
