TigranGjust absence of kindness  :P00:01
jobu1543I have a broken software RAID1 that drops to  BusyBox upon boot. Does anyone have any suggestions/urls that might help?00:01
soldatsTigranG, yes00:01
littlebear72i have tried it 3 times now and each time something went wrong in my life and i did not have time to learn ubu / nix and needed the comfort of a simplistic program like windoze lol00:01
bamsambacan someone reccommend me a good download manager other than Kget? something as good as free-download-manager on Windows in case anyone's heard of it00:01
soundray_soldats: arithmetic, harmonic or geometric mean?00:01
alekasoundray_: HOw can I change the sample rate in audacity then... I should probably restart to clear whatever is using the soundcard and start from there00:01
littlebear72i knew windoze well so i use it when my life runs amok00:01
onatsfinally fixed my apt-cacher! whew!00:02
IamReckbamsamba, Downthemall00:02
taffread those books and you will be aswering all the questions00:02
inzeolittlebear72: my main desktop runs windows, my laptop ubuntu - desktop does....games...thats it haha00:02
* TigranG tried to compile a kernel yesterday and learned he's dumber than he thought00:02
delfoswhen i get to login screen the font size is really big, cant read ok, after login ubuntu prompts a window saying that the X-conf and the GNOME-conf files have different keyboard values.. Do you know ehat goes wrong?00:02
soldatssoundray_, hah you got me00:02
inzeolittlebear72: use my laptop for everything else, including work stuff (in a windows environment)00:02
* nickrud thinks compiling a kernel is not a measure of intelligence, but of perseverance00:02
bamsambalittlebear72, i run it on virtual box :P00:02
soundray_aleka: sounds like a good plan. Sorry, I'm not the best guy to advise on audio issues, contrary to what my nick might be seen to suggest00:02
TigranGnickrud: well I got it lol, wasn't hard actually, just took forever00:03
alekaHeh.. that is what led me to believe you would be the 'perfect' person to bother :)00:03
TigranGand then I was too lazy to build ndiswrapper for my wifi so I just went back to 2.6.2200:03
nickrudthe one real sound expert doesn't come around much anymore ;(00:03
soundray_crimsun: would you mind having a look at aleka's issue?00:03
bamsambaIamReck, well isnt downthemall a firefox ext? i can't find that using apt-get00:04
IamReckbamsamba, yes it is, it runs with in firefox and its amazing.00:04
soldatsaleka, what was your initial problem00:04
IggzHi, installede the kde desk-top but didn't like it - anyway, this caused umbutu to upgrade itself to kumbutu - login screen, duel desktop log, etc. How to i return it to the single boot, one desktop state? I am assuming a long command line. Anyone help? :-)00:05
bamsambaheh, ok, lemme try00:05
* bascule knows compiling kernels is easy, configuring them takes practice and knowledge00:05
alekasoldats: What is a good application to record stereo output from my soundcard other than Audacity? For some reason audcacity is not working for me and am wondering what other options there are...00:05

fabio_hi i just compiled the hardy 2.6.24 kernel with some patches on my gutsy amd64 system. all went fine. but problem is, it only built a linux-headers-2.6.24-1 package and not also a linux-headers-2.6.24 which is needed to install the first one00:08
Jordan_Ulittlebear72, You should upgrade00:08
fabio_any help?00:08
fabio_i followed the steps on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile to compile00:09
justinhhiya folks.  got an interesting little tickler for you.  I've got a gutsy install I've been trying to convert to netbooted - so far it's gone pretty well.. the pxelinux.0 is doing its thing and the kernel with initrd image is loading.  But during boot the kernel panics.  just before that I see http://www.pastebin.ca/808879 - so I think maybe it's trying to initialise eth0 when it doesn't have to and is consequently losing /.00:09
soundray_fabio_: you don't really need headers if you have the complete source00:09
fabio_hmm but nvidia-installer is complaining00:10
onatshas anyone used azureus html web gui here? doesn't seem to be working on my installation00:10
fabio_that it can't find the include/linux/version.h file00:10
fabio_i used --kernel-source-path pointing to my source00:10
waseemmy usb pads show up in device manager but dont respond in gxmame can somebody help please00:10
soldatsaleka, have you tried jokosher00:11
soldatsits more advanced but im not sure why audacity isnt working00:11
sharpiewhy does rsync start as a service on startup?00:11
alekasoldats: Will do...didn't think it was stable enough last time I looked at it... Thanks~00:11
kitchesharpie: because it's a service]00:11
sharpiekitche: but it's run manually00:11
soldatsaleka, hmm i heard it was stable but id look into it if you really want to edit music00:11
kitchesharpie: umm the client does00:12
kitchesharpie: but it's also a daemon00:12
sharpiekitche: that does..what?00:12
kitchesharpie: so rsync the client can be used to rsync files00:12
alekasoldats: My basic need right now is being able to record playing music (kinda like replay radio in windows)... have stuff on my rhapsody playlist I want to record00:13
dyeroticquestion...i have just installed ubuntu...and im stuck in 800x600 and i wanna chuk my monitor out the window00:13
TigranGaleka: You can try Sound Recorder00:13
Jack_Sparrowdyerotic: Hold off on that option for a few00:13
TigranGaleka: it comes with ubuntu00:13
dyeroticwhat do you mean Jack_Sparrow?? i cant stand 800x600 and i tried that guide on the website and it didnt help00:13
Jack_Sparrowdyerotic: from cli..    sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg00:13
sharpiekitche: so..if i disable it, i won't be able to rsync?00:13
dyeroticive done that i believe, and it still messes me up00:13
Jack_Sparrowdyerotic: Vesa driver will get you 1024x768 if you get locked out00:14
dyeroticim gonna do sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg00:14
dyeroticand see how it goes00:14
soundray_sharpie: you can use rsync without rsyncd, but with reduced capabilities00:14
alekasoldats , TigranG  >> Thanks00:14
sharpiesoundray_: what do you mean by "reduced capabilities"?00:15
dyeroticok so i should choice vesa Jack_Sparrow?00:15
sharpiesoundray_: what won't i be able to do?00:15
kitchesharpie: no you will be able to but you just can't rsync files from that computer to another00:15
TigranGaleka: What I did to get recording working is in Volume Control increase the 'In Gain'00:15
soldatsaleka, ahh i get what you need. im not too sure but i think jokosher should suffice for now if it works. i do recording for bands but i use more professionla recording eqiptment for tha00:15
Jack_Sparrowdyerotic: try to setup your video card and monitor to their specs, but if you cant get it go to veas to get back here00:15
sharpiekitche: oh, meaning that if i only rsync locally between drives, i can cancel the daemon?00:15
xcstcompiz fusion is working in my gutsy, how can i customize it00:15
enigmata<ubotu> None of those links did anything, I've already ran through the troubleshooting before.00:15
Kohvihoorwhy does my screen go black for a second, everytime i start a video?00:15
Kohvihoorati video card+fglrx drivers00:15
dyeroticok ill try00:15
soundray_sharpie: rsync with rsyncd can sync files by transferring only the differing parts, for example.00:15
Jack_Sparrowenigmata: you are talking to a bot..00:16
enigmataoh00:16
enigmatawell, that was embaracinbg00:16
soundray_Jack_Sparrow: don't give it away so quickly ;)00:16
* TigranG never gets old (seeing ppl talk to bots)00:16
Jack_Sparrow:)00:16
onatsis there a codec for m4a?00:16
soldatshahahah00:16
sharpiesoundray_: so if i only rsync locally, can i safely disable rsyncd?00:17
littlebear72lol00:17
TigranGonats: I think there is00:17
soundray_sharpie: it's safe to disable it in any case00:17
TigranGonats: with VLC player00:17

hairs2longjustinh: with direct NFS from the kernel, you dont need the initrd, but the kenrel will need to rebuilt with NIC driver and NFS support built in (not modules)00:39
waseemhas anyone used xmame here?00:39
soccer_hawk10hey all. can someone tell me why the super+C command doesn't work in amaroK in 7.10?00:40
hairs2longjustinh: if using initrd, you need to have NIC and NFS modules in initrd, and the init script should connect and pivot root00:40
justinhhairs2long: aye that's the way I used to do it many moons ago on gentoo.  haven't yet successfully built & installed my own kernel on ubuntu yet though00:40
soccer_hawk10it's supposed to be a play/pause command, but it is ineffective00:40

soccer_hawk10hey all. can someone tell me why the super+C command doesn't work in amaroK in 7.10?00:41
Zogum, reading that link doesn't answer my question- it's probably something really basic, but... I'd rather not make a mistake here.00:42
hairs2longI prefer the simpler method, and refuse any hardware I cant recomplie the drivers for00:42
justinhhairs2long: I'll have another play with initrd & see how I get on.  if not, then I'll go with building my own kernel for a trip down memory lane.  and if that doesn't work I could always buy a big usb stick ;)00:42

gunspojalittlebear72, you got a link to those forums?00:46

weithi have a problem to install the amd64 version of ubuntu gutsy (7.10). when i want to start with the live cd i havent any screen after the language selection. what can i do? with the 32 bit version it works fine.00:47
kelsinMLeBlanc: perfect, you run in opengl, if you have a good graphics card and working drivers then it runs fine00:47
soldatssoccer_hawk10, i thought the spacebar does that. try looking at the preferences menu i believe there is a key config menu for it. if there isnt im not sure. i haven t used it in a while00:47
MLeBlanckelnsin: Might a 6600GT qualify as a good graphics card? I know it's a bit old.00:47
soldatsMLeBlanc, depends on your system00:47

MLeBlancsoldats: What would you say about Xubuntu on an AMD Athlon 2600+, 1GB ram, nVidia GeForce 6600GT00:48
soccer_hawk10soldats: nah, this is universal.  it controls amarok from any screen.  using the Super+B command, for example, skips the song even if i'm using firefox or any other program.  i tried to change the shortcut key, but none work00:48
Rafabehello...I am installing linux for the first time, Ubuntu 7.10 on a P3 1GHz with 256mb of RAM. On the install screen , I looked at the help and it said I needed 384 mb of RAM to install it. I googled for more info, and supposedly I can use other memory managers than Gnome, but how do I install the OS in the first place so I can replace Gnome?00:49
hairulfrJust reinstalled - wasn't there an art manager once?00:49
teknoprepamarok owns00:49
MLeBlanckelsin: I am considering this for an install on an old PC, I have never tried running WoW on it.00:49
DILweith, most software is 32bit anyway00:49
soundray_gunspoja: I see -- in that case you shouldn't be looking for a wireless interface. Configure ppp instead.00:49
soldatsMLeBlanc, hah that should run pretty good as far as i now but i think WOW prefers to run with 2gigs of ram00:49
gunspojasoundray_, how do i do that?  I've never used wireless before :(00:49
IndyGunFreakZog: i dont' usually use the Live CD, but is there an option to like, "Use free space" or something like that00:49
MLeBlancsoldats: Alrighty, I'll give it a shot. Thanks a lot!00:49
teknoprepRafabe, the reason you need 384 is becuase the cd is a live install... i would suggest installed xubuntu on that machine00:49
timotimotimorafabe: you might want to consider a different distro or an older version of ubuntu00:49
kelsinRafabe: download the alternate cd and use that to install a command line system, or just to complete the normal installation. At either point you can then install any other packages you want (including other light wight windows managers)00:49
soundray_gunspoja: System-Administration-Network-Modem connection00:49
Rafabetek: will it give me the option to use Xubuntu on the installation if I proceed?00:49
soldatssoccer_hawk10, hmm sorry i havent used it in a while if the commands or config dont work id try the amarok main site00:50
gunspojaerrr...huh00:50
soccer_hawk10soldats: alright, thanks00:50
xcsterUSUL, how about the themes? how can i install it? the theme files are all .emerald00:50
gunspojais that a program or something i need to run in a terminal?00:50
void^DIL: that's only true for closed source software00:50
soundray_gunspoja: does dmesg give you any indication of the device name?00:50
waseemwhats the command if i want to uninstall an application?00:50
IndyGunFreaktimotimotimo that is borderline ridiculous advice to Rafabe00:50
Rafabekelsin: so no way to get this standard Desktop CD to install? I have to download a different version?00:50
teknoprepRafabe, dunno never installed it.. but its basically the same thing as ubuntu just using xfce4 for its windows manager00:50
noname6243is it safe to say that If my computer has atleast 3 errors in memtest86, it have a problem with my memory ?00:50
soldatsMLeBlanc, WOW is pretty big and always wants a lot  of memory so im only saying it might not run so smooth00:50
kelsinwaseem: "sudo apt-get remove <app>" or "sudo apt-get purge <app>" to remove config files as well00:50
soundray_gunspoja: are you using Ubuntu?00:50
IndyGunFreakRafabe: no no no... you'll need to do one of two things... add ram, or download the alternate install CD.00:50
waseemk thanks00:51
DILk00:51
erUSULxcst: the themes for emerald can only be used with emerald of course the default compiz uses metacity themes afaik00:51
MLeBlancsoldats: Understood.00:51
kelsinRafabe: *Alternate* desktop cd, it's a checkbox at the bottom of the ubuntu download page00:51
IndyGunFreakRafabe: you can also look into Xubuntu00:51
RafabeAllright, so I'll download the other version then. Thanks.00:51
databitshey whats up everyone00:51
waseemkelsin: would you say purge is better when planning to re-install a different version of the app?00:51
noname6243is it safe to say that If my computer has atleast 3 errors in memtest86, I have a problem with my memory ?00:51
IndyGunFreakRafabe: same version(gutsy 7.10)00:51
IndyGunFreakRafabe: you just want a different installer, you want the Alternate Install CD00:51
soundray_gunspoja: see the menus in the upper left corner?00:51
kelsinRafabe: yeah it doesn't use the livecd system, just gives you the standard (just as easy) text mode installer, will install fine, then you can install whatever you want (plenty of light choices out there)00:51
Rafabethat's what I meant...the "alternative" 7.10 version00:52
Zogis ext3 preferable to ext2?00:52
kelsinZog: yes00:52
noname6243ye00:52

gunspojasoundray_, yeah I'm running ubuntu gutsy on the laptop, and feisty here on my desktop00:52
gunspojathe laptop is the one with the wireless adpater00:52

Pelotyronepolleri, in the blacklist ? you blacklisted your video driver ? why ?02:07
stroyanenigmata: That patch doesn't match 2.6.22-14-generic at all.  There is no ad1884_init_verbs[] array in the 2.6.22-14 driver.  There is no ad1884 at all.02:08
tyronepolleriPelo: no I mean it is there by default02:09
enigmata<stroyan> what can I do?02:10
Pelotyronepolleri, as far as I know you should be able to run at least the basic desktop effects with an intel card, mine can handle them and it's a 865,  anything over that is a bit over my head,  you should try asking in #compiz-fusion,   I don't think you will need to install any beta of anything,  but I might be wrong ,  they will be able to tell you02:10

Condouloqt-x- I am not 100% sure, but on the preferences for an IRC server you connected to (FIle preferences on Chatzilla I think), there is an option to enter a port number. I am not 100% sure because I don't have Chatzilla extensions installed.02:59

soldatsKalamansi, ok well when doing logos its best to do it in a format that lets you resize it to whatever size you want without pixelating the image. so for you i woudl suggest inkscape because it is a vector program specifically for logos and vectors. you may use "the GIMP" as well for logos since it is a very advanced program for photo editing and is simialr to photoshop. the only difference between GIMP and photo shop is photoshop can handle03:02
soldats vectors and GIMP cant. but if you use the gimp and inkscape together you should never need another photo program03:02

elcaseyd3MMoNuL`: it sounds like you don't have the correct drivers installed for your wifi. this can be a problem with livecd versus local install.03:08
Flanneladamonline45: If you want to do vector stuff, you should check out inkscape.  GIMP is a raster based program.03:08
soldatsadamonline45, yes it very much supports layers but as i recall it does not support vectors inkscape is a far superior program for them. i tend to use gimp in accordace with inkscape for my needs in logos and other designs03:08

void^onats: depends, if you use vino (that's what the builtin desktop sharing in ubuntu uses) or x11vnc you get the very same desktop. more commonly you run an independent vnc server, though - higher performance and it persists when you logout.03:43

soldatsadamonline45, im not too familiar with kde since ive never used it but maybe just leave the kde settings the way they are so you can see the tooltips until you are comfortable with them and then change them back, sorry its not a better answer but im not familiar with kde04:30
silentbruenig, really? perhaps that's a good sign.. maybe things are 'just working' now04:30
thinsoldierseriously? there's no other way to check how much free space you have?04:30
bruenigsilent, I think people are switching to pclinuxos04:31
sobbie<thinsoldier> - install baobab04:31
Arceyewhat can I use to recover accidently deleted data ?04:31
thinsoldierI have to install something to see how much free space I have? wtf?04:31
thinsoldierseriously?04:31
bazhangbruenig: dont believe distrowatch04:31
silentbruenig, never heard of it, I'll look into it... i started out with debian, what base is pclinuxos built on?04:31
Atomic_UEmaxo, cool. So when the Startup-Manager app is installed, run the thing (System > Administration > Startup-Manager) and let me know when you get that far04:31
sobbiewell it might be there04:31
adamonline45soldats: Ooooh, it's workable though :)  I'll ask in #kubuntu... Thanks :)04:31
soldatsthinsoldier, "du" in a terminal04:31
killerbeesatem1hairulfr:  i found a thread for not fully installed packages, and someone recommended doing that.  so, it didn't really fix it, but I didn't need the network manager anyway.  I'm just glad my apt works right04:31
daedalusthinsoldier: df -h04:31
bruenigbazhang, I shall believe it04:31
bazhangsilent mandriva04:31
sobbielook under acesssories04:31
bruenigsilent, pclinuxos is like ubuntu but better04:32
thinsoldiersoldats: where is the gui option? why can't we just right click on the drive icon in the side bar or something?04:32
soldatsadamonline45, ok cool that seems better for that situation04:32
adamonline45thinsoldier: Sorry, that's the best I know, I'm in KDE...04:32
Jack_Sparrowthinsoldier: I use thunar file manager and it shows free space on any selected drive..  or where you lookng for cli answer04:32
hairulfrkillerbeesatem1: Yeah, it's super frustrating,04:32
Jack_Sparrowthinsoldier: Nautilus is another option04:32
soldatsthinsoldier, you should be able to try to open the system monitor04:32
killerbeesatem1hairulfr:  thanks for all your help tonight.  It was driving me nuts...  and now I can finish the thread someone else started with some kind of advice.04:32
thinsoldierand again with the cryptic commands. Someone please tell me what the "DF" stands for?04:32
sobbie<thinsoldier> or go to Places>My Computer04:32
silentbruenig, oh well, I like the ubuntu community, and I have this gutsy install working fine now... Linux is linux imo... there will always be an infinite number of choices, I'll stay with ubuntu04:32
thinsoldierit would be less alien If i understood what the letters were an abbreviation for04:32
sobbiethen right clieck on filesystem... and go to property04:32
hairulfrkillerbeesatem1: But good you made it work. Yeah, no problem, didn't really do all that much, you fixed it yourself :)04:32
bruenigsilent, I am just kidding, I don't know how good pclinuxos, I imagine it is probably the same as ubuntu/fedora/opensuse which are pretty much identical04:33
soldatsthinsoldier, "du" in terminal it stands for disk usage04:33
sobbiedf -h is a command at a xterm04:33
thinsoldierthanks sobbie04:33
sobbie;)04:33
soldatsthinsoldier, also du -h means human readable04:33
bazhangbruenig: phew04:33
Jack_Sparrowthinsoldier: you can type man df04:33
thinsoldierbeen at it for 10 minutes and didnt see that04:33
bro_man<-- still seeking help, started this morning... OS: Ubuntu-feisty, Symptom: after loading OS, gui freezes/locks as soon as mouse/cursor is moved, Suspected Cause: last thing I did before rebooting and discovered reoccuring sympom was use "Add/Remove Applications" and added Nvidia drivers... Present State: mouse unplugged, after OS loaded I pressed alt+cntrl+F3 and I am at a fullscreen terminal prompt....04:33
bro_man I do not know any commands but I can follow directions... umm... help?04:34
thinsoldierthanks soldats04:34
Atomic_UEthinsoldier, I would guess df = disk free04:34
soldatsbro_man, what do you need04:34
thinsoldierthis may sound crazy but I'd rather type "disk usage" than "du"04:34
silentbruenig, doesn't fedora push the non-proprietary policy though? I think I remember it not being able to play mp3's default, only ogg...?04:34
thinsoldierits more user friendly to a noob I think04:34
bruenigsilent, not true04:34
soldatsthinsoldier, the bash shell doesnt work that way04:34
crshmanhi all, i installed vmware workstation on my ubuntu box and when i restarted all my fancy compiz went away, i see it's not in the startup list anymore...does anyone know the command to start it?04:34
Atomic_UEthinsoldier, Places > Computer, right click on a thingo and it should say how much is free/used04:34
Jack_Sparrowthinsoldier: man and almost any command will bring up the manual for that command04:34
Ashfire908ok uh i was using xchat, and all of a sudden, the load average for the system raiply climbs and aplay processes lock up and don't play anything and refuse to respond to signal 16 to kill. or a SIGTERM.04:35
bazhangcrshman: you have ccsm installed?04:35
sobbiepro_man... unsintall nvideia driver...04:35
bruenigsilent, well ubuntu can't play mp3's by default, no distro can except the lindows/linspire/mepis's of the world that pay to be able to include them04:35
silentthinsoldier, no, I would much rather type du, it being much easier04:35
sobbiebroman04:35
killerbeesatem1hairulfr:  hey, i would have never of thought of googling what i did without us going back and forth.04:35
thinsoldier:( 1 gig free04:35
Atomic_UEthinsoldier, also Nautilus should say X Free Space in the status bar04:35
Ashfire908this has happened before. load average is at 58.16 and rising.04:35
bro_mansoldats: I need to use my system without wiping my boot... everything is right there...04:35
crshmanbazhang: i should, i didn't uninstall anything i think some config files just got overwritten04:35
drcodehi all04:35
crshmani'm running gutsy, so it *should* be installed already04:35
bruenigbro_man, you need to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf04:35
soldatsbro_man, sorry what do you mean by wiping the boot04:35
Atomic_UEmaxo, how's it going?04:36
silentbruenig, true enough, but I like how synaptic works though.. makes installing further software a breeze04:36
bazhangcrshman: alt-f2 compiz --replace04:36
geniiAshfire908: If firefox is open with some Flash animations playing, close it04:36
thinsoldierwell i also needed to know the total capacity04:36
maxoAtomic_UE, ok, yeah I just installed startup-manager, interesting though, it reckons my resolution is set to 640x480 with 8bit at boot04:36
soldatsthinsoldier, in your file manager it should tell you everything04:36
bro_manit's a winduhs termm... to wipe the drive04:36
crshmanawesome, thnx04:36
hairulfrkillerbeesatem1: Cool, well, glad you got it working :) It was quite interesting, never really seen that happen, much else, but not that :P04:36
bruenigsilent, yeah they all have graphical package managers04:37
Atomic_UEmaxo, well that answers my next question04:37
bro_mansobbie ?04:37
soldatsthinsoldier, du -h should tell you everything04:37
drcodeany one know about boot network card?04:37
Flannellgc: What's up?04:37
Atomic_UEmaxo, what size monitor is plugged in?04:37
FunnyLookinHatIs there an equivalent to "defrag" in linux?04:37
silentbruenig, looking at the screenshots, pclinuxos looks like any other kde-based linux with some nice themes04:37
FlannelFunnyLookinHat: ext3 doesn't need it (it does it as it goes)04:37
Atomic_UEmaxo, 15, 17, 19, 21 inch?04:38
FlannelFunnyLookinHat: Or rather, it keeps itself unfragmented, is a better way to put it.04:38
bruenigsilent, ubuntu looks like any other gnome based distro with an ugly brown theme04:38
thinsoldierhow can i force mount an ntfs drive?04:38
Ashfire908genii: no this is not firefox related04:38
bazhangheh04:38
sobbiebro_man... thought it said you install driver... then problem happend...04:38
bro_man OS: Ubuntu-feisty, Symptom: after loading OS, gui freezes/locks as soon as mouse/cursor is moved, Suspected Cause: last thing I did before rebooting and discovered reoccuring sympom was use "Add/Remove Applications" and added Nvidia drivers... Present State: mouse unplugged, after OS loaded I pressed alt+cntrl+F3 and I am at a fullscreen terminal prompt....04:38
silentbruenig, ahaha, I never use the default theme04:38
bruenigsilent, I don't know that anyone does04:38
maxoAtomic_UE: it's a laptop 1024x768 lcd screen04:38
bro_mansobbie: yes, correct.04:39
Ashfire908genii: i shut it down. aplay does not respond.  load is 96.04:39
SpookyETHi04:39
bro_manI do not know any commands but I can follow directions...04:39
SpookyETHow can you make gnome show the contents of windows when they are resized?04:39
soldatsthinsoldier, do "sudo fdisk -l" in a terminal and whatever hdd you want to boot do "sudo mount -a /mount/point"04:39
Atomic_UEmaxo, try setting the resolution to 1024x768 and turn the colour depth to 16 bit04:39
FunnyLookinHatFlannel, sweet, so if I resize the drive it'll probably preserve the data, yeah?04:39
maxoAtomic_UE, ok, I'll try that now. have to reboot tho. brb :-)04:39
bruenig!xconfig | bro_man try this04:39
ubotubro_man try this: To reconfigure your X server, open a console and type « sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg » - To configure only the driver and resolution, type « sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg -phigh » - See also !FixRes04:39
Atomic_UEmaxo, no worries :)04:39
mmm3hi... so i just installed 7.10 a couple of days ago on a laptop with no internet connection, and i remember it saying something about updates. Since then i installed wifi-radar and internet works, and i try to use the update manager and it searches for updates but doesn't find any and says i'm up-to-date, even though i am sure i am not. am i stupid?04:40
silentmmm3, you're probably up to date04:40
xcsthow can i make and play a virtual cd rom/04:40
xcsthow can i make and play a virtual cd rom?04:40
mmm3do the download iso's get updated?04:41
silentxcst, mounting an iso?04:41
bazhangxcst: you mean an iso file?04:41
xcstsilent, yep04:41
xcstbazhang, yep04:41
silenterm... I cant remember the filesystem name04:41
daedalusmmm3: no, there will be updates waiting, are you sure you didn't update?04:41
geniiAshfire908: No other immediate ideas come to mind04:41
bro_manbruenig: so the exact command is " sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg " (without the quote marks ?04:41
mmm3sure04:41
silentxcst, I'll look it up04:41
sobbiexcst - mount -loop something04:41
soldatsbro_man, yes04:42
daedalusmmm3: from the command line, sudo apt-get update04:42
thinsoldierit says my drive is /dev/sda but when i try to mount that it fails04:42
geniiAshfire908: top is showing aplay as most resource hog?04:42
thinsoldiercan't find /dev/sda in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab04:42
daedalusmmm3: once it's updated then, sudo apt-get upgrade04:42
sobbiebro_man yep that is it04:42
silentxcst, sudo mount file.iso /media/iso/ -t iso9660 -o loop04:42
soldatsthinsoldier, do you want it to mount everytime at boot04:42
Ashfire908genii: one sec04:42
thinsoldierno just this once04:42
thinsoldierexternal drive04:42
silentxcst, if you're not familiar with mount, man mount04:42
Ashfire908no04:42
xcstowww04:43
sobbiethinsoldier - use part command to find partition04:43
luluhi, I just installed gutsy in my desktop PC, but gdm couldn't be started, I just watched xorg log, and I have 3 errors: 1:Cannot find empty range to map base to, 2:Vesa(0): Cannot read v_bios(3), 3: Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration04:43
lulucan anyone help me?04:43
Ashfire908genii: i just tried restarting alsa.04:43
geniiAshfire908: What IS top resource hog?04:43
soldatsthinsoldier, so if you unplug it and plug it back in it doesnt auto mount04:43
thinsoldierbash: part: command not found04:43
Ashfire908genii: it locks up.04:43
luluI have an ati radeon x70004:43
thinsoldierit wont auto mount cuz its an ntfs and the error message says windows didnt shut down properly (which is hasn't in 3 years)04:43
silentlulu, try a dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg04:44
Ashfire908genii: xorg compiz, gnome-system-monitor, it varies04:44
sobbiesorry cfpart or parted04:44
geniiAshfire908: I would suspect something in compiz.04:44
bazhanghttp://www.ubuntugeek.com/mount-and-unmout-iso-images-without-burning-them.html xcst04:44
Ashfire908genii: besides no sound and a load passing 165.23, nothing else says anything is wrong04:45
lulusilent, and which driver should I use?, this is a fresh install04:45
soldatsthinsoldier, i auto mount an ntfs everyday i wonder why it doesnt work you could also add it to the /etc/fstab file and it will mount everytime and if you want to unmount it right click and choose unmount04:45
silentvesa is good for compatibility04:45
silentthough you can try ati04:45
geniiAshfire908: Laptop?04:45
Ashfire908genii: it's at normal resources.04:45
* thinsoldier runs off to buy a hard drive, install windows, boot, plug in external drive, shut down windows properly, restart in ubuntu, mount external drive :( see ya later, thanks04:45
Ashfire908genii: no.04:45
mmm3sudo apt get update fetches 1B in 0 sec reading package lists and then done04:45
meoblast001why doesnt totem play OGG Video?04:46
mmm3doesn't seem to have udated anything04:46
geniiAshfire908: Rules out cpu scaling making it seem like unusually high load then04:46
Ashfire908genii: right now, i just want to kill aplay.04:46
meoblast001or what plugin is required to play it?04:46
soldatsit seems that thinsoldier is impatient and it also seems he doesnt want to learn to use linux04:46
silentmeoblast001, you're missing codecs04:46
sexcopterhi, could anyone recommend me a package for transcoding audio, eg from mp3 to ogg?04:46
silentmeoblast001, just get vlc04:46
test001endru cabul04:46
Ashfire908genii: the issuse appear to be comming from alsa itself.04:46
meoblast001i have vlc04:46
silentthen use it04:46
lulusilent, well, I'm using vesa, I didn't modify anything :S, install app chose vesa04:46
meoblast001VLC dies too04:46
silentlulu, try the reconfigure04:46
geniiAshfire908: sudo kill `ps ax|grep aplay|cut -b1-6`04:46
silentmeoblast001, have you tried to play the video in any other OSes?04:47
Ashfire908genii: the kernel modlue is in the kernel/loaded. no scaling is taking place.04:47
maxoAtomic_UE, no luck, says I passed an undefined video mode. I guess I'll just have to live without pretty splash screens :-(04:47
daedalusmmm3: there won't be any lists to grab if you're up to date04:47
silentmeoblast001, are you sure the file is intact?04:47
daedalusmmm3: did you upgrade too?04:47
Ashfire908genii: no output.04:47
meoblast001silent: i dont know... the recommended Ubuntu ScreenCast programs made these files04:47
Atomic_UEmaxo, an undefined video mode? that's one i ain't heard of04:47
soldatsi really wonder if anyone has ever googled "learn linux" and actually read some web pages. it seems to me that there is a lot of information in those pages. a lot of the problem i see on this channel would be easily described and or fixed if someone were to read up on it04:47
geniiAshfire908: ps ax|grep aplay04:47
silentmmm3, you may have to check your sources in synaptic.. make sure you have repos enabled04:47
Ashfire908genii: 202+ load.04:47
mmm3yes i ran sudo apt-get upgrade04:48
FunnyLookinHatHow can I send resize2fs a size in MB rather than sectors for a partition resize?04:48
Atomic_UEmaxo, try a lower/other resolution04:48
silentsoldats, I learned by diving in... it's been a few years now04:48
geniiAshfire908: Sounds like some memory leak04:48
soldatsreading the dist wiki is another good way to learn how to work the system the way you want to04:48
hairulfr"if you're wondering how he eats and breathes and other science facts...."04:48
maxoAtomic_UE, thanks for the help anyway, I'll fiddle around a bit more, and maybe who knows...04:48

Atomic_UEmaxo, no worries, cya04:49
silentsoldats, yep04:49
Ashfire908genii: buttload of stuff.04:49
meoblast001silent:?04:49
silentmmm3, upgrade is just upgrading packages04:49
Wingless-Archang...04:49
geniiHmm04:49
silentmmm3, dist-upgrade upgrades the distribution release04:49
mmm3o right...04:50
daedalusmmm3: did you set up a connection and upgrade during the install maybe?04:50
silentmmm3, sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade04:50
sexcopterany suggestions? There must be something out there for converting audio04:50
mmm3it's just wierd because i have a desktop with 7.10 on it since release, and have updated it successfully04:50

Ashfire908anyone know how to force a process to end?04:54
daedalusmmm3: /var/log/apt/something04:54

soldatssexcopter, cool04:55
lazarus_lupinekillall <processname>04:55
daedalussexcopter: you will loose sound quality going from mp3 to ogg, there really isn't any reason to do this04:55
Ashfire908like destory the process? alsa, aplay, and alsactl do not respond to signal 15 or 6.04:55
silentmeoblast001, I'm not familiar with linux encoding software, but if the video doesnt play in vlc, and doesnt play in totem with the proper codecs installed, then I'm afraid you might have a corrupt file on your hands04:55
ernieI just tried using the devices from a QEMU/Win2k MIDI program... works :)  So I know the hardware's good.  and the port's working... but I need the ALSA driver to use snd_serial_u16550 I think04:55

xcstsilent, what do you think is the best player for ubuntu? just like wm player for windows04:59
soothsayereyemean: blender is more of a 3d modeling app, what are you trying tod ?04:59
soldats\`slushpuppy`\, also sometimes it may scale an image but it zooms in so you may not notice a difference these are the problem i encountered with gim if those dont work im not too sure about your problem04:59
YurimHi, I want to use bcp (associated with the boost libraries). But some examples from the manpage only work with --boost=/usr/include and the others don't work at all. Is anybody really using bcp?04:59
daedalusmmm3: i'm at a loss...04:59
bullgard4ernie: I do not know the word 'lurk'. Say it in other words, please.04:59
eyemeansoothsayer, trying to edit an engagemtn video for friend05:00
rmajwhy ubuntu is so vulnerable?05:00
silentxcst, windows media player is the second largest piece of crap media player ever made... the first being itunes05:00
bazhangrmaj: its not05:00
erniebullgard4, lurk means to remain silent and only read the other conversations05:00
daedalusrmaj: vulnerable to what?05:00
xcstsilent, i cant play my dvd cd properly in totem05:00
hairulfrsilen: hahaha05:00
silentxcst, rhythmbox for music, vlc for video05:00
soothsayereyemean: if you just need to cut parts out and recompress avidemux is pretty good05:00
matthew_how, i want to use sawfish instead of metacity.  but i try "killall metacity" but it just comes back a second later.. what do I do?05:00
xcstsilent,  ok thanks05:00
rmajbazhang: it is05:00
rmajdeadlock: to: memtest 2000M05:01
bazhangrmaj: please stop05:01
rabiddachshundLong story short, can I have an ati card *and* nvidia on feisty?05:01
eyemeanwat if i want to make snazzy transitions from scene to scene stuff like that, add tetxt etc05:01
silentrabiddachshund, that's worse than dividing by zero05:01
luludo you recommend using ati's website binary to install ati radeon x700 video card?, I just tried ati, radeon, and fglrx driver without luck, they tell me they can't find any screen05:01
Ashfire908soldats: i've given it signal 6, or SIGABRT a core dump signal. using "kill" alone did what i expected. nothing.05:01
eyemeansoothsayer05:01
mmm3i wish i could remember the message i got during install about updates or something...some file in /etc05:01
rabiddachshundhahaha05:01
rabiddachshundcrap.05:01
soldatsmatthew_, sudo /etc/init.d/metacity stop05:01
silentrabiddachshund, it's probably possible05:01
Dr_willisrabiddachshund,  ive heard of it being done befor.05:02
bullgard4ernie: My advise would be post your module question here. If nobody answers re-post your question after a quarter of an hour and do this again and again until some new aspect of the matter arises.05:02
rabiddachshundI guess I'll just remove one.05:02
rmajdeadlock: did it worked for you?05:02
silentrabiddachshund, good choice05:02
rabiddachshundWhich is supported better, ati x600 or walmart nvidia?05:02
matthew_soldats:  command not found05:02
kelsinmatthew_: sawfish should have a replace command as well, "sawfish --replace" maybe? THen save you're session after. Maybe also you can "killall metacity && sawfish"05:02
Atomic_UEAshfire908, "pgrep aplay"  then do "sudo kill -s 9 <process id>"05:02
soldatsAshfire908, ok well what i meant was pgrep the app name and it will show the process id and then do another command like "kill process id05:02
silentrabiddachshund, always nvidia, but if the ati is more powerful, try it first05:02
hairulfrnvidia05:02
erniebullgard4, :)  right, then.  thank you05:02
Ashfire908Atomic: not a zombie. "uninturtible. i've gotten this error before. last time i ended holding the power button after like pressing it a bunch of times and the system failing to shutdown.05:02
rabiddachshundkthanks05:02
matthew_kelsin:  sawfish --replace doesn't work.05:02
YurimNo bcp user around? Too bad. *sigh*05:02
rmajbazhang: install program memtest and run memtest 3000M to prove me wrong. save all open documents first, since ubuntu will crash (well, freez)05:03
soldatsmatthew_, if you run system monitor does it show up if it does then try to end it05:03
matthew_kelsin:  neither does the other suggestion05:03
=== phoenix999 is now known as _phoenix_
kelsinmatthew_: you can also go into the session manager and tell metacity not to restart as well, then kill it, then start sawfish05:03
silentrmaj, who run's memtest within linux?05:03
soldatsmatthew_, if that doesnt work then you will need it to not run on startup05:03
matthew_soldats:  kills it, but it comes back a second later05:03
silent*scratches chin*05:03
Ashfire908atomic: nope.05:03
rmajsilent: guys that write this utlility; or use any program that needs lots of memory05:03
soldatsmatthew_, do what kelsin suiggested05:04
Atomic_UEAshfire908, evil process indeed :S05:04
silentrmaj, memtest86, test all your memory, not just that which isn't occupied by operating programs05:04
soldatssilent, i run memtest8605:04
soldatsonly when i need it05:04
xcsthwo can you make gdesklets work on startup?05:04
rmajsilent: sigh, the goal is that user space application can easy crash system05:04
matthew_soldats, kelsin: that seems to have worked, thanks.05:05
eyemeansoothsayer,  wat if i want to make snazzy transitions from scene to scene stuff like that, add tetxt etc05:05
soldatsxcst, i believe there is a config file for it im not sure05:05
mmm3ahha looks like stuff was commented out in /etc/apt/sources.list by the installer05:05
silentrmaj, it's easy to create programs that will crash a system. Fortunately, that's the opposite of the goal!05:05
bazhangrmaj: you have a support question?05:05
rmajsilent: the goal is to have system that can't be crashed05:06
silentrmaj, not possible05:06
soldatsrmaj, any system can be crashed05:06
bazhangrmaj: take it to #ubuntu-offtopic please05:06
rmajsilent, soldats: right.  crash freebsd05:06
kelsinrmaj: do like OLPC and devise a system where every app is virtualized05:06
rmajbazhang: how to make my ubuntu not vulnerable to this05:06
kelsinrmaj: def not crash proof, but closer05:06
soothsayereyemean: i've never done anything like that in linux, try cinelerra maybe, but i think it only takes dv input05:06
silentrmaj, I could very easily crash bsd, but I'd have to use a hardware hack... I call it the power button05:07
dmb062082flash is all screwed up in 64 bit 7.1005:07
rmajkelsin: fork bomb are really lame attack to which ubuntu should be resistant... its also quite easy to fix05:07
thinsoldierI know that when I delete something on an NTFS Drive it goes to .trashes on the root of that drive. Now, how do I ACTUALLY delete the file from inside of .trashes?05:07
rmajsilent: and can user space application crash entire system?05:07
Ashfire_Serverok who was helping me when my nick was ashfire908?05:08
eyemeansoothsayer, ok thanx05:08
astro76rmaj, from your trolling in #linux you clearly know that this is something inherent in linux perhaps, and not just Ubuntu... so why bother us about it?05:08
soldatsrmaj, run this in a terminal on any *nix based system ":(){ :|: };:"   it will certainly crash it05:08
kill_u_hi all05:08
kelsinwhat does the 64 bit flash package actually do, cause I thought there still wasn't an adobe 64 bit release?05:08
kill_u_is anyone know the download manager for linux which can stop the PC after complete the download05:08
Dr_willisthinsoldier, the file managers normally have a 'delete dont trash' shortcut some how.  or just find the .trash* dir and delete it  (dont move it to the trash) :)05:08
Atomic_UEthinsoldier, Shift+Delete on .Trash05:08
bazhangkill_u_: stop the pc?05:08
thinsoldieri turned on show hidden but still dont see a .trashes05:08
thinsoldierif i go into windows i can see it05:08
kill_u_yes05:09
kelsinkill_u_: "wget file && sudo reboot" as long as you can sudo the reboot without a password05:09
rmajastro76: bug is in kernel, but some distros fix it a bit by default.. apparently not ubuntu; and yes, poiting out any problem in god blessed linux is basicly trolling05:09
erniekelsin, is that the GNU version maybe?05:09
Atomic_UEAshfire_Server, I don't know about helping, but trying to seems more accurate :P05:09
CharlieSuAnyone have a waffles.fm invite?  if so plz PM me. :)05:09
bazhangkill_u_: no idea what that means :}05:09
rmajsoldats: orly>05:09
kill_u_sudo want pass05:09
kill_u_if i sleep at 5 o'clock which will give the pass05:09
Ashfire_Serveratomic_ue: i sent aplay evey core dump signal. then compiz showed pidgin locked up05:09
rmajsoldats: it doesnt crash my other box05:09
t3chignore this text05:09
silentrmaj, I'm sure if you went to the top programmers in the world, hackers, malware writers, I'm sure they'd bring bsd to it's knees by running an application. Nothing is invincible.05:09
soldatsrmaj, no this is a help based channel you shouldnt come here telling people about how it sucks or there is a lot of bugs in it05:09
astro76!bugs | rmaj05:09
uboturmaj: If you find a bug in Ubuntu or any of its derivatives, please file a bug report at: http://bugs.ubuntu.com/  -  Bugs in/wishes for the bots can be filed at http://launchpad.net/products/ubuntu-bots05:09
soldatsrmaj, is it *nix based running BASH05:10
kelsinernie: flashplugin-nonfree is available on 64bit in gutsy, which confused me, I guess I should just look at the package05:10
Atomic_UEAshfire_Server, do you know what spawnd the aplay command?05:10
thinsoldierrmaj; pay canonical for support and they'll listen to you complain05:10
silentrmaj, regardless, this isn't the place for bsd talk, if you would like to make ubuntu resistant to fork bombs, do it up05:10
shaanhey how can I unarchive a rar file?05:10
bazhangrmaj: please stop05:10
kill_u_bazhang: this means that sudo will want password05:10
rmajsilent: some bsd's are. there are probably high prices, but it can't be broken. common it's not windows, be optimistic05:10
Atomic_UEAshfire_Server, and perhaps why aplay is still waiting? I'm assuming for some device05:10
ernieshaan, apt-get unrar or similar05:10
astro76!rar | shaan05:10
ubotushaan: rar is a non-free archive format created by Rarsoft. For instructions on accessing .rar files through the Archive Manager view https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FileCompression. There is a free (as in speech) unrar utility as well, see !info unrar-free05:10
shaanthanks05:10
Ashfire_ServerAtomic_UE: i did a gui shutdown. nothing happened. i did ctrl-alt-backspace. xorg reset, the system tryied to shutdown, but failed at stopping a alsa and i held the power button down.05:10
silentrmaj, OSX isn't windows either, but I've seen it crash05:11
silentand it's a bsd derivative05:11
rmajsoldats: yes, my box is immune to forkbomb. your can be to with ulimit (well its harder with it)05:11
silentplease keep on topic05:11
Ashfire_ServerAtomic_UE: xchat spanwed it.05:11
bazhangkill_u_: not sure what you are trying to do05:11
thinsoldieris there a linux IM client that can accept files across msn messenger?05:11
silentthinsoldier, try amsn05:11
bazhangamsn05:11
soldatsthinsoldier, pidgin05:11
hairulfrthinsoldier: pidgin05:11
rmajsoldats: my question was, is there some clever way to prevent this bug in ubuntu05:11
Ashfire_Serverthinsoldier: pidgin works for me05:11
NaisenuHi. Trying to play a 3gp file from a friend. I added the mediubuntu gusty repository to SPM and installed ffplay. Also have the w32codecs installed. I get video but no audio.05:12
soldatsrmaj, what bug exactly05:12
bazhang!ot | rmaj05:12
uboturmaj: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, #ubuntu+1 supports the development version of Ubuntu and #ubuntu-offtopic is for random chatter. Welcome!05:12
kelsinkill_u_: you could always allow your user to shutdown the system via sudo without password, so that you can script it05:12
sarixehi, i just installed amd catalyst 7.11, configured xorg.conf for composite, and compiz won't work.05:12
rmajsoldats: running program that uses lots of memory freezes the system05:12
kill_u_I try to download file and after that i just want to stop the machine05:12
rmajkill_u_:   wget ..... && shutdown -h now05:12
rmajkill_u_: as root probably05:12
kill_u_this not work05:13
Atomic_UEAshfire_Server, kill xchat? but i assume that's already been tried seeing as you've done the ctrl+alt+backspace05:13
soldatsrmaj, if a program uses lots or memory it is due to the developer who designed it not the OS05:13
squarebracketi'm trying to install some brother printer drivers... tried installing, didn't work, so i wanted to remove it and try again, but now i can't get it to remove.05:13
Dr_williskill_u_,  you could always 'suid' the shutdown or halt command. then any user could use them to shut down. :) (not a good idea for security howevber)05:13
=== Bawbatos_Away is now known as Babatos
kill_u_as root the file will be changed and cannot be read from users05:13
soldatsrmaj, if its a problem try using a defferent program05:13
hairulfrsquarebracket: Try making it work without driver first, just tell CUPS to find it,05:13
kelsinkill_u_: then do what I said and make it so you can sudo shutdown without a password05:13
rom11I am not able to downlaod sources using svn co05:14
sarixenevermind, compiz.real works *sorta*05:14

rom11it is asking for the password05:14
squarebrackethairulfr: didn't work... i installed it via localhost:631 or whatever, went with whatever driver it thought i should use, and the print test page didn't work....05:15

naminemwhat's the command for switching workspaces?05:15
Atomic_UEAshfire_Server, the only thing i can suggest for your problem is the Reset button05:15

Ashfire_ServerAtomic_UE: already did.05:16
Ashfire_ServerAtomic_UE: had to hold it down.05:16

Ashfire_ServerAtomic_UE: yes,05:17
Ashfire_Server*.05:17
Atomic_UEAshfire_Server, but still anything that just resets the computer to start it up again is all i can think of05:17

I run out of memory whenever X runs cause it doesn't have enough to download dnsmasq and ipmasq into ram05:25

Dr_willisRabidWeezle,  ya could download the packages to a usb/thumb drive.. I guess. never tried to tweak the live cd that much.05:26
rmaj155, and counting... how to FORCE the shutdown _now_, using mouse only, in kde?05:26

AprilHarehello danker05:27
Dr_willisRabidWeezle,  when it downloads them they go to /var/cache/apt (i think) ya could move them from there to a USB drive05:27
rom11<kelsin> did you get the message "the certificate hostname does not match"05:27
bazhangRabidWeezle: you could do as Dr_willis suggests pendrivelinux dot com has much more on that front05:27
kelsinrom11: no05:27
RabidWeezleDr_willis: is there a file I can edit to change where they are downloaded to?05:27
Dr_willisRabidWeezle,  if you really wanted to go hard-core ya could also put a swap file/partition on a usb drive.05:27
silentrmaj, power button, 4 seconds05:27
silentDr_willis, thats what I'd do05:27
rom11does it require any ssl package to be installed05:27
Dr_willisRabidWeezle,  no idea on there. download them. copy them over.. then ya can isntall with sudo dpkg -i whever.deb05:28
RabidWeezlek, it was hard enough to download ubuntu live disk on a psp at the hotspot lol05:28
Ashfire_Serverrmaj: a click of the power button should shut it down. ctrl-alt-backspace restarts xorg05:28
RabidWeezleok05:28
Dr_willisThe Ubuntu live cd - is a bit lacking in ways compared to other live cd's out there.05:28

Sulo_SeppaHello guys. I am on my wife's laptop currently, which I put ubuntu 7.04 on quite a few months ago. Yesterday however, I decided to open adept package manage and do a distribution upgrade. It got to the point where it was installing packages, then asked to remove some so I chose okay, at which point it crashed. It is usable, but I don't really know what happened or how to continue the process.. I haven't experienced bugs, but I05:29
Sulo_Seppadon't think this is a complete upgrade since it stopped about halfway through. What can I do? I tried updating packages and stuff, but there was nothing to, and it won't let me finish dist upgrade because it says I am on 7.10 now05:29
silentits not even a fair comparison of performance05:29

Naisenubazhang: I have not converted to MPEG. I am not certain if you were suggesting this or asking if I had done it.05:51
silentNaisenu, make theora, not proprietary05:51
mattycozekelsin, i was reading this http://pratyeka.org/rfcomm/05:51
kelsinmattycoze: well if you must install from source the error you're getting is that 99% of the time make install will fully install files on your system so you need to be root, so commonly you run configure and make as normal user, then run sudo make install05:51
Naisenusilent: And this would be done how?05:51
nickrudhi bullgard4. Offical releases mean just that, the official releases. In this case the 'latest' is the latest official release05:51
soldatsbro_man, RabidWeezle idea??? dont you mean a headache with pictures05:51
soldatsoops05:52
silentNaisenu, why in Windows of course, where the majority of third-party codecs exist05:52

mattycozesame thing05:52
soothsayerSpeakerMania: mplayer -dumpaudio -dumpfile audiofile i.flv will get the audio out, maybe you can convert it afterwards05:52
Sulo_Seppabazhang: thanks. also, another thing about this. Ever since I upgraded when using 7.04 a few months ago, the "power manager" utility doesn't work correctly. Such as, when I hover over it, it shows "Battery: not present. CPU Frequency: 0 MHz"05:52

wckdkl0wnis there an ftp client for linux that will allow me to extract passworded rar files on a server i have full rights to?05:53
silentNaisenu, I'm sure some one's raised the question somewhere... the question is, do you want to spend 5 minutes in windows to convert the file, or 5 days browsing the net and messing with system files?05:53
soldatsbro_man, http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Dapper#How_to_install_Graphics_Driver_.28NVIDIA.2905:53
kelsinwckdkl0wn: I'm confused, you're end goal is to copy a file and unrar on a server you have an account on?05:53
NaisenuSilent: Can I convert it here? Or can you recommend a program to convert it?05:53
silentwckdkl0wn, winrar has a linux release05:53
bullgard4nickrud: Yes, that is correct. My mother's language is not English. But this was not important when I put this question here.05:54
silentNaisenu, I'm not sure, you can try the windows video editor, or "obtain" *cough* a copy of sony vegas05:54
wckdkl0wnkelsin, i just uploaded like 20 rars to my webhost but now i need to extract them on the server. it was easier to upload the rars instead of the thousands of files05:54
kelsinwckdkl0wn: do you have ssh access?05:54
silentyou'd have to look for the codecs, however05:54
wckdkl0wnthey say i do but i cant connect to it05:54
kelsinwckdkl0wn: so you can log in and run unrar (if they have it installed)05:54
wckdkl0wnjailed ssh access05:54
wckdkl0wnmaybe i am doing something wrong with ssh i dont know05:55
silentI'd think the phone company would have utilities to convert their video files to something a bit more mainstream05:55
bro_mansoldats:... ok, got the link ... do you think it will make a difference if OS is feisty ?05:55
kelsinwckdkl0wn: well you're first step to being able to work on the server (not just copy and move files) is to get a shell account, after that you won't be so stuck, but the ftp protocol (afaik) doesn't allow you to run random programs on the host, so you'll need to unrar locally then upload05:55

nickrudwckdkl0wn: no, you would use unrar or rar , hopefully they have it installed. Otherwise, you can install rar on your machine, then transfer the binary to your server06:02
kelsinwckdkl0wn: ssh is JUST like the teminarl on your computer, so saying "in ssh" doesn't apply for that question, and unfortunatley no. Tar handles tar files (and can handle gzipping and bzipping the tar files for you) For rar you need unrar afaik06:02

astro76dell_lin, first check if card is supported *without* ndiswrapper, i.e. by native drivers, if not then you can use ndiswrapper for anything with a windows driver06:37
nickrudmojo: ok, you're getting into stuff I know of (theoretically) , you would use showkey to get the scan code of the key, use setkeycodes to give it a code that xev will see, then either map them directly using keyboard shortcuts or write some stuff for xkb. Theoretically06:37

mojonickrud, the kbd is an HP Multimedia keyboard.  back/playpause/stop/fwd/eject, vol knob, and mute across the top.  those work.  then there are 12 rubber keys above the number pad, and a LED to the left of the first rubber key (messages key).  messages/phone/Internet(works)/suspend on first row, shortcuts 1/2(works)/3 and "information" on bottom row.06:46
rxKaffeeI'm running ubuntu-server gutsy, I've added one user with "adduser rxkaffee" executed from root account(I know root account login isn't the norm for desktop ubuntu, not sure if this is the case normally in ubuntu-server or not, but I only had root) Any other users I try to add via the same method I recieve the error "adduser: Could not find program named 'groupadd' in $PATH." but I can run groupadd manually just fine06:46

nickrudbro_man: you mean while dpkg-reconfiging? I vaguely think escape does that07:01
b14cknickrud: I'm doing it ebcause right now I have BSD4.4 on my external drive, and I want windows to recognize it. But when I plugged it into my wnidows box it completely ignored the device since it wasn't ntfs/fat32. So I am formatting it to ntfs, then i'll connect it to my windows box, then i'll format it again07:02

rhysb14ck: it doesn't completely ignore it. simply go into the ...whatever is it called. there is a disk manager07:03
silentit should have a couple buttons on it07:03
nickrudzion: you just grab them (shift left-mouse) and drag07:03

b14ckIt was just listed as an incmopatible USB driver.07:03

wols_!helpme | spiniker07:38
ubotuspiniker: Avoid your questions being followed by a trail of "Please, help me", "Can nobody help me?", "I really need this!", and so on. This just contributes to making the channel unreadable. If you are not answered, ask again later; but see also !repeat and !patience07:38
bluefoxxwols_: is there a way for me to import user accounts when reinstalling?07:38
astro76!checkinstall | OldakQuill07:38
ubotuOldakQuill: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!07:38

chilli_hello07:57
zanpakatouKostya : afaik if you change it trough fonts in preferences you'll be changing the global settings... and as for the icongs... personally i would try to find a good themes that would suit my needs ...07:57
Kostyaastro76: this will increase font size all over the gnome...07:58
chilli_my laptop's screen just blew up i think what do i do07:58
munk_how do i change permissions on a secondary hdd?07:58
chilli_or it just failed and every thing stoped working07:58
wols_mitchbones: what permissions?07:58
wols_doh. he left07:58
astro76Kostya, yeah I dont' understand what you want either, because if you want the font bigger, just zoom to 50%, since the font takes up more room, the larger icon isn't wasting space07:58
zanpakatoumunk_ : how do you intend to change the permission ? on boot or manually?07:58
bluefoxxso what does "  libdvdcss2: Depends: libc6 (>= 2.6-1) but 2.5-0ubuntu14 is to be installed" mean to me?07:59
mitchboneswols_, what?!07:59
mitchbonesoh you hit m and tab i guess07:59
wols_bluefoxx: it means you download from the wrong repo07:59
wols_bluefoxx: download the package from a feisty repo not a gutsy one07:59
mitchbonesWhen you install ubuntu, does it install Grub on Windows or your Ubuntu partiton?07:59
TigranGKostya: I dont know of anyone way, in nautilus the font size depends on zoom level and font size in Apperance07:59
zanpakatoubluefoxx : it means you have a different version which means you have to replace it supported one... you have to know what distro yous is and compare it to the one you downloaded07:59
wols_mitchbones: stage2 is installed in /boot/grub/07:59
mitchbonesty08:00
bluefoxxso how do i do that?08:00
Kostyaastro76: bit it's not logical, the control tells me to make icons size smaller, why does it makes font size smaller too....???08:00
wols_bluefoxx: you've been told how to get the proper one08:00
munk_zanpakatou, on boot...i just want to be able to share the hdd over samba and be able to access it cuz right now its only set to plugdev group...08:00
mitchbonesI wanted ot uninstall ubuntu on this HD and just have it on a seperate one...that is for another day I guess08:00
zanpakatoubluefoxx : it only happens if you put a repository which is not for your current distro08:00
astro76Kostya, it says nothing about icon size, just zoom08:00
wols_mitchbones: you cannot uninstall. but you can overwrite08:00
KostyaTigranG: that is what I want to know. so basically there is no ways to configure this settings separately..08:00
scguy318mitchbones: GRUB is installed on the MBR08:00
scguy318mitchbones: to answer that questino you posed08:00
mitchbonesThats what I mean't08:01
TigranGKostya: Not that I know/think of08:01
scguy318mitchbones: ah, then wols_ addressed it :)08:01
scguy318mitchbones: sorry to bug08:01
mitchbonesscguy, np!08:01
KostyaTigranG: ok, thanks guys08:01
Kostyaastro76: ok, thanks guys08:01
astro76Kostya, so if somehow the icon to font-size ratio is not acceptable to you, you need to find a new theme or modify yours08:01
wols_bluefoxx: apt-cache policy libdvdcss208:01
zanpakatoumunk_ : we have similar problems before ... I solved mine by reinstalling my ubuntu...  can't help you with that... because if you try to change the ownership it will not permit you to do so.. even if you're sudo08:01
doumai have 2 partitions in the first i have win  witch partition method i must use to install ubuntu in the 2 partition?08:01
chilli_my laptop's screen just blew up i think what do i do08:01
chilli_or it just failed and every thing stoped working08:02
astro76Kostya, no prob ;)08:02
Kostyacan tis be modified in the theme? I think it should be in the sources of nautilus...08:02
astro76Kostya, I would think the theme08:02
zanpakatoumunk_ : i'm guessing it's fat32 partion u have problems on08:02
munk_zanpakatou, i dont want to change ownership to something else only group or others.. its a ntfs ....worse than fat:(08:02
wols_munk_: put it in fstab to be mounted on boot. nothing to do with permissions at all08:02
wols_munk_: what's the fstab entry for the partition?08:03
Kostyaastro76: well, I cannot see any fonts related settings in the gnome/gtk themes... I still think it should be in the sources. say for example when zooming, decrease the font size less than it's at the moment..08:03
chilli_my laptop's screen just blew up i think what do i do08:03
chilli_or it just failed and every thing stoped working08:03
munk_wols_ i havent looked into fstab yet let me take a peak08:03
zanpakatoumunk_ : there is however you could do.. there is an unofficial guide somewhere that will answer your problem.. try googling this "unofficial ubuntu guide"08:03
munk_peek*08:03
wols_chilli_: ctrl+alt+f108:03
astro76Kostya, gnome strives for simplicity so I don't see that happening :P ...but perhaps something in gconf08:04
Kostyaastro76: ok, anothe question :) is it possible to make places icons bigger? say like on macosx in finder?08:04
wols_chilli_: if that doesn't work: reboot. if you don't get a picture on the screen on reboot (no BIOS e.g.): not a ubuntu problem, but buy a new laptop08:04

astro76Kostya, places icon where?08:05
Kostyaastro76: would be cool to find all gconf settings documented, including unpublished ;)08:05
wols_munk_: sda1 is a partition. and you don't mount harddisks, you mount partitions08:05
iroTigranG, and how do you want me to TYPE Japanese there?08:05
wols_munk_: so if it is mounted on boot what is your problem?08:05
Kostyaastro76: say, if you got places on the left panel, is it possible to make icons bigger there?08:06
zanpakatoumunk_ : check this please http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Gutsy08:06

astro76Kostya, dunno08:06
Kostyaastro76: ok :)08:06
munk_wols_ true sorry yeah...but what i was wondering is....the problem is that the owner is set to root and whenever i share this through samba it asks me for a password and user name and whenever i put mine in it doesnt work....08:06
Kostyaastro76: propably I should as it on nautilus channels :)08:06
bro_manwols: it is an option in configuring the xserver-xorg...08:07
wols_munk_: man smbpasswd. samba passwords are not the same as the system passwords08:07
jarrod_anyone now if it is possible to change the location of the tmp file in lynx?08:07
TigranGiro: or do you want system wide Japanese?08:07
wols_bro_man: ignore it08:07
Kostyaastro76: ok, the last questions. is it possible to disable spell check in pidgin? I'm talking russian and this is making me crazy :)08:07
munk_wols_ but i dont have a smbpasswd set up..08:07
scguy318Kostya: lemme look08:07
wols_munk_: then do it08:07
munk_everything else i share works except this..08:07
scguy318Kostya: yes, Toosl -> Prefs -> Conversations08:08
ozzloyi messed with my resolution, and now alt+tab makes the screen go white.  how do i fix this?08:08
wols_how is it shared?08:08
scguy318Kostya: uncheck highlight misspelled words08:08
wols_what's the smb.conf entry for it?08:08
iroTigranG, yeah i want the latter one08:08
scguy318Kostya: though the real solution may be to change the dictionary file to Russian08:08
scguy318Kostya: if you wanted spell checking for Russian08:08
TigranGSystem->Admin->Language Support08:08
iroive added the language, but i dont know how to start typing in it08:08
munk_wols_ but i was wondering what the umask code i should have...its at 007 now but when i had gentoo on it was set at 0000 so im not sure if that has anything to do with it or not...08:09
bluefoxxokay, so i finally got libdvdcss2 to install, but dvds still wont play08:09
Kostyascguy318: thanks! :) how did I missed this setting...I was looking for something like spell check...08:09
TigranGiro: Is it the default language?08:09
irono, should it be?08:09
wols_munk_: if you can access it locally as normal user: it doesn't. you can also change its uid from root to your user with uid=08:09
Kostyascguy318: it's too hard to find dictionary with russian slang ;)08:09
TigranGiro: I'm guessing, or let me see if theres any way to configure the keyboard to a language08:09
TigranGiro: yea08:10
munk_wols_ would that change the owner ?08:10
wols_munk_: yes08:10
