dylan_Hi, all.  I'm wondering, is there an easy solution to setting up a LAMP-type web server on Ubuntu 7.10 desktop through synaptic, etc.?  If not, what's the simplest way to get a phpmyadmin, mysql, php, apache server set up?  Security is NOT important, its for personal site testing on my LAN.00:14
Flare183!lamp | dylan_00:14
ubotudylan_: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)00:14

vocxblizzo1, by patching you mean actually modifying the source code and then compiling? Do you know how compilation works?00:38

vocxblizzo1, I'm no expert but I guess there is no "package" containing only patches. For that I think you would need to get the source code from upstream, or maybe launchpad.00:40

cyphaseOkay, I've figured out a workaround.. Open the stream in VLC, use the advanced options to save it to a file, then listen to it in another VLC instance at the same time.

Herboadelie, everything is ok physically01:26
SniperFromHellIf I should encounter any network errors after installing these updates, what do I do? Although I shouldn't, since I configured network settings after installing updates for the network manager, then i installed the rest of the updates after that.01:26
adelieHerbo: is there a volume knob physically on your speakers?01:26

Herboadelie, I hear a very low sound while its working in my windows01:27
XiXaQYannTech, you're my hero! Thanks :)01:27
adelieherbo: are you sure the speakers are plugged into the microphone out and not the line out? line out required powered speakers (amplifier)01:27
Herboadelie, then its not a hardware issue01:27
kelsinLaw506: so it's not giving you any messages when you click the checkbox next to the cube, just doesn't select it?01:27
YannTechno problem XiXaQ ;)01:27
Herboadelie, its a system issue i persume01:27
adelieHarbo: same problem between windows and ubuntu?01:28
Law506kelsin: correct01:28
kelsinLaw506: can you trying runnig it from the terminal with "ccsm" and see if you get any errors when trying to select desktop cube?01:28
adelieHarbo: the speakers can be in the wrong port and you will still get sound, specifically line out01:28
Herboadelie, what I've mentioned Its working normally in windows and hear no sound in Ubuntu " to be honest hear a very low sound "01:28

jimmygoonSo are there kde4 packages in gutsy-backports, a page on the site says there is supposed to be, but I don't think its accurate? I just want to test out KDE4 on my pc01:29
nickrudjimmygoon, I downloaded them a while ago from backports, didn't work (didn't try hard either)01:29
YannTechit's the time to sleep ( 02:30 AM )01:30
Herboadelie, lets fix the issue likewise I've no sound recognized at all01:30
YannTechbye bye01:30
adelieHarbo: ok, caught up. try the sound test in system -> preferences -> sound? there you can try different drivers / setups and try to play test sounds01:30
alex_I have a problem with my xserver. I got it running but it's in 1024x768 and I don't want to ruin it again by trying to up it to 1280x1024. Thanks a lot.01:30
Herboadelie, could you consider that instead ?01:30
jimmygoonnickrud, hum, maybe I'll see if someone else has a more "reliable" repo up01:30
Law506kelsin: nevermind, i had deselected Automatic Plugins and it took awway the cube, I got it now, thanks for the assist though01:31
nickrudjimmygoon, could be better now, there were conflicts with multiple packages having the same file in them01:31

Alphamonkeythat usually fixes most problems01:31
Mo9a7idoes it ?01:32
Alphamonkeyworks everytime01:32
adelieHarbo: ?? Sorry I didn't get what you probably explained before I got here just a bit ago, but from what you have said now, if it works in windows, and not in ubuntu, you should be able to resolve the issue through the config test in the sound preferences panel01:32
Mo9a7iyou do it ?01:32
Law506I find taking the office space approach to electronics works... sometimes01:32

Mo9a7icdrom ioctls ,, anyone ?01:33
Herboadelie, It can't be fixed from the config test because Its working but like you've reduce your sound volume but its not anymore01:33

dasickisi'm running ubuntu gutsy gibbon with all the updates but my cpu runs extremely hot01:34
bjbumnickrud, ahh. So if I used Envy it should give me newer drivers?01:34
dasickisi have hp dv5000 and i'm googled everything i could and haven't found anything that works01:34
p_quarlesricanelite: you'll need to run it in the shell. go to the directory, and type ./name_of_script01:34
jalswhat flag do i need to add to rsync to make it delete stuff on the destination directory that's not on the original?01:34
ricanelitewell it is sitting on my desktop01:34
ricanelitei have terminal open01:35
adelieHarbo: well, other option, if you left click on the sound applet, there is a "open volume control". certain setups have very low volume by default. I get that with my optical sound01:35
n00bieRoAkSoAx: how can i verify this?  (bare with me, i'm new to this :)01:35
p_quarlesjals: the flag for that is --delete01:35
RoAkSoAxn00bie try iwconfig in the command line01:35
p_quarlesricanelite: so, move it the script to your home directory01:35
n00bieRoAkSoAx: http://pastebin.com/d5f92d1fa01:36

YannTechipv6 power ;-)01:37
alphaicemanhi everyone01:37
Herboadelie, perhaps there's something wrong with the modules or sound driver configuration01:37
p_quarlesthat is your home directory01:37
Herboadelie, or there's nothing to do with it at all01:38
adelieHerbo: dpkg --reconfigure alsa will let you manually configure it, if you really want to try that.01:38
n00bieRoAkSoAx: well, there's an icon where i enable/disenable both 'Networking' and 'Wireless'01:38

p_quarlesricanelite: sudo chown ricanelite urt40-linux-installer.sh01:39
ricaneliteim sorry01:39
p_quarlesif you run that command, it will allow you to run the script01:39
adelieHerbo: but it is really hard to say what it could be without actually witnessing the symptoms. I have about covered every problem I have seen and its fix. the `dpkg --reconfigure alsa' I have never had to do to get sound to work, but... as long a it already doesn't work, why not.01:40
n00bieRoAkSoAx:  'connect to other wireless network', 'create new wireless network' and 'manual configuration'01:40
ricaneliteit went right back ricanelite@ricanelite-desktop:~$01:40
Herboadelie, --reconfigure is not the correct option01:40
adelieHerbo: oh, btw, are you using alsa or oss?01:40
RoAkSoAxn00bie ok, so it seems that you can connect to wireless networks, do you have any specific one that you want to connect?01:41
adelieherbo: hmm... sec01:41
HerboHerbo, don't know , how do I know ?01:41
p_quarlesricanelite: it will allow you to run the script -- you still have to run the script manually01:41

onatsemerald --replace01:43
Herboadelie, how do I know about alsa or oss ?01:43
RoAkSoAxn00bie: you have to enable wireless card by pressing that dedicated button and after that you have to setup your wireless network with 'Connect to Other Wireless Networks'01:44
nickrudp_quarles, nohup gedit & for example, you can even close the terminal you ran it in01:44

jimmygoonhm, interesting, is it that way on alll gui apps? and if so what is the function of "&" then? or is it just that the terminal issues a "hangup" call and gedit close obediently?01:47

mohkohnHow do I set up permissions so that I can use virtual box as a regular user?01:57
LjLmohkohn: add yourself to the 'vboxusers' group01:57
kelsinalphaiceman: what happens when you try to enable desktop effects? Does it just say it can't?01:57
KinPumpkinKingkelsin, well, flobo puyo turns into window mode but it doesn't lock up my system, but tremulous does once it goes into window mode on it's own01:57
ari_stressmohkohn: put your user as vbox group01:57
alphaicemanyes it says it can't01:58
alphaicemanso it goes back to the default01:58
alphaicemanI have compiz manager01:58
mohkohnari_stress, is that in addition to vboxusers? I am already a member of vboxusers.01:58
kelsinKinPumpkinKing: to me that doesn't sound like a graphics card issue (honeslty I have no idea though), have you tried running them in a differen Xserver? It's kindof complicate but can lead to less problems01:58
LjLmohkohn: no, vboxusers is enough. have you rebooted after installing virtualbox?01:58
kelsinalphaiceman: does "xdpyinfo | grep -i composite" return something in a terminal?01:58
qwazI have a window that I would like to open down in the lower left hand corner of my desktop. I have set the window to open with a title and created a rule to match on that tile. However, when I launch the application it places the window about 200 pixels higher than where I have instructed it to be placed.01:59
KinPumpkinKingkelsin, I wouldn't know how to do that01:59
mohkohnyes LjL01:59
alphaicemanlet me try Kelsin01:59
ari_stressmohkohn: i believe that's all needed01:59
LjLmohkohn: what's the output of « ls -l /dev/vboxdrv »?01:59
KinPumpkinKingkelsin, different X server = different distro?02:00
kelsinKinPumpkinKing: I would assume that the problem is something else happening, grabbing the screen from the game, and then bam... can lock up everything... honestly I don't know about how to solve it. I would obviously try to limit what else is running while playing a game02:00
brennanosI cant seem to convince Ubuntu to keep my display resolution settings intact between logins... it always reverts back to 1024x76802:00
kelsinKinPumpkinKing: no no no, you can run a second X windows server with only the game running. People did it a lot with quake III and unreal etc02:00
LjLmohkohn: uh... i'm missing a lot of things. 1) what are those question marks?  2) why do you have a "vbox" directory in your home, and what is it?  3) well, not a question, but use "sudo -i" rather than "sudo su"02:00
kelsinKinPumpkinKing: so like you can hit ctrl-alt-F1-6 to get to the consoles and 7 to get the the gui, you can then do F8 to get to the game02:01
KinPumpkinKingkelsin, hmm, but I did run with nothing else open but it still did the same thing02:01
kelsinKinPumpkinKing: but it's not the easiest thing to do, just would make it so something else can't "grab" the screen away from the game02:01
worknsoleanyone here know how to change a user SID in samba besides with pdbedit -U (isn't working)02:01
maybeway36KinPumpkinKing: if F8 doesnt work, try F902:01
KinPumpkinKingkelsin, I see... I'll try that now, thanks02:02
theunixgeekHow do I access my Linux partition on a Mac?02:02
kelsinKinPumpkinKing: I would google a bit to find out if others are having that issue, but it def doesn't sound like a graphics card thing02:02

=== tofaffy|lappy is now known as tofaffy|rawr
KinPumpkinKingkelsin, oooh, except I need to run XQF to play the game...02:02
kelsinKinPumpkinKing: I would also run the games from the terminal redirecting output to log files02:02
mohkohnLjL, It is built from CVS. The question marks come when I ls -la as a user. as root it ls -la is normal.02:02
KinPumpkinKingkelsin, yeah, I'll try with the terminal now...02:02
kelsinKinPumpkinKing: "game-commands 1> stdout.log 2> stderr.log" to see if any errors happen02:02
kelsinKinPumpkinKing: so even if it crashes you mgiht be able to see an erro in those two files after reboot02:03
KinPumpkinKingkelsin, actually I found a way of not having to reboot, I just hit ctrl+alt+backspace, that still works...02:03

kelsinalphaiceman: don't need to read the whole thing but make sure those three lines enabled composite are in your xorg.conf (have to sudo edit, like "sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf"02:05

kelsinpaynegod: shoudl be able to just install the linux-headers package02:08
paynegodjust the headers?02:08
kelsinpaynegod: and the nvidia driver, any reason you want to use the nvidia one instaed of the nvidia-glx-new package?02:08

kelsinpaynegod: did you install the nvidia-glx-new package and did you check that direct rendering was on?02:10
LjLmohkohn, uhm, i use the official Ubuntu package... wouldn't that be a better idea? :| anyway, the vbox directory seems to not be executable (directories should be), so try sudo chmod u+x ~/vbox02:10
paynegodkelsin: direct rendering?02:10

mohkohnLjL the official package works for the official kernel. My laptop doesn't boot with the official kernel. I will try your suggestion. thanks.02:11
kelsinn00bie: the button probably won't do anything in ubuntu without other work (most likely, it depends) but the 2200 should be enabled and working by default, do you not see a list of wireless networks when you left click on the network manager applet int he top bar?02:11

ConstyXIVis there a good linux/windows benchmark program?02:17
Jack_Sparrowkelsin: I thought so too, but had problems again today..  the installer has not been updated for the recent flash udate.  You need to grab the tar.gz from adobe and install the .so to your ~/.mozilla/plugins/02:17
brennanosOse: that sucks02:17

alesanhi, what should I do to install the java plugin on 64bit??02:18
kelsinJoshooa: I would listen to Jack and put the .so file in ~/.mozilla/plugins02:18
brennanosJoshooa: yeah, I got that too, yesterday.  I went directly to Adobe's download site and got it there, then ran the installer02:18
Jack_SparrowConstyXIV: you cant compare / benchmark them against each other.  It is like comparing Apples and oranges.02:18
kelsinn00bie: does "sudo iwlist eth1 scan" give you results?02:18
brennanosJoshooa: but yeah, it appears that just the .so needs to be in ~/.mozilla/plugins02:18
OseBrennanos: Last time I used Wubi to install Ubuntu on Windows and then transfered it to its own partition.. And *then* updated to 7.10. That should be the same, right?02:18

n00biekelsin: eth1      No scan results02:19
Jack_SparrowOse: wubi is a bad idea02:19

JoshooaI don't have ~/.mozilla/plugins02:19

cylencegood evening/day/morning :)02:20
kelsinpaynegod: there should be a packaged called "linux-headers"02:20

kelsinpaynegod: a virtual package pointing to what you need02:20
Joshooabrennanos: I am currently using the installer from adobe02:20

whyameye_would I install 32 bit or 64 bit ubuntu for Intel Core Duo (iMac)?03:00
=== Ttech2 is now known as The
kelsinwhyameye_: I always recommend installing 32bit no matter what03:01
=== The is now known as The_Doctor_
Meniskwhyameye_, Do 32. You can do both but 64 has compatability issues.03:01
kelsinwhyameye_: just imo 64bit is more trouble then worth for desktop use03:01
n00biekelsin: ok, i will try that03:01
n00biekelsin: thank you for now03:01
muuluubut there is on google most of the problem bug is with 64?03:01
kelsinn00bie: but that is your issue, obviously solving it is not trivial, but your wireless card thinks it's off somehow :-(03:01
whyameye_kelsin: but it will run 64, huh? I've installed 64 on other machines with the ia32 libs and if I have trouble I just install the 32 bit apps and am fine.03:01
kelsinwhyameye_: honestly I don't know :) sorry03:02
whyameye_Menisk: 64 has compatibility isssues with core duo or Imac specifically or just in general has compat issues?03:02
Meniskwhyameye_, Don't use 64bit unless you have a good reason. For everydays stuff there is no beneifit and it has compat issues.03:02
Meniskwhyameye_, It has issues because more dev focus is on 32 as it s used more.03:03
Meniskwhyameye_, 64 will become better when more people use it.03:03
cristhiancome on there must be a video edition lover at here.  dont disappoint me !03:03
whyameye_but I am confirming core duo is a 64 bit processor? That's the part I didn't know...03:04
Meniskwhyameye_, Core 2 duo is 64bit.03:04

Rodietzecrimsun man how did you do when the Installation fails coz the X server?03:31
kelsinOse: wouldn't advice stopping it, but you can see exactly what command it's running, pretty neat03:31
OseKelsin: Ahh, it's moving the file system over.. That would be why it's taking a long time then. And yes, it is really neat. Thanks.03:31

Judekelsin, like the pop mail port is 110, how do i find mine??03:35
RodietzeJude nmap03:35
RodietzeJude I think you want nmap, just google for it or apt-get install nmap03:36
JudeRodietze, what is nmap??03:36
muuluuhow to check and fix if i have HDD error03:36
kelsinJude: do you mean find which ports are open on your computer?03:36
speevesjude: do you mean ip, or port?03:36
theelbermungsterHi guys, could you please help me? I am having a little problem with Compiz Fusion on Ubuntu 7.10 "Gusty".03:36
wykelsin: Got a workaround to disable to power management.03:37
kelsinJude: "computers" don't have ports, each type of programs have ports, you can connect to your computer (via your ip) on any port you want, you need to be running a server on a certain port for it to work though03:37
Judekelsin, yes03:37
c0mp13371331337_theelbermungster - Don't ask to ask.... just ask! :-)03:37
beerfanI just bought a new keyboard with media buttons. The play, next, prev, buttons work but volume controls and mute bring up a volume thing on the screen but have no effect. What should I look at to fix that?03:37
kelsinJude: yeah the nmap program is a program that finds open ports (like Rodietze said)03:37
Judespeeves, port03:37
wykelsin: But now it can't show up in the file browser once I unplugged it.03:37
zaracyo kelsin ... i'm not getting mpd + sonata working.. sonata connects to the mpd but i don't see any files.. i've thrown in some tracks to the directory in the mpd.conf though.. =/03:37
kelsinzarac: there is a comand to make mpd create the db, I don't remember it offhand03:38
kelsinzarac: "man mpd" will probably find it03:38
limpcdoes the desktop edition have all the software available to install, as the server edition?03:38
c0mp13371331337_beerfan - I was discussing a similar issue not too long ago.  For me, volume-down mutes and volume up unmutes, but leaves the volume at 0%.  Are you getting the same thing?03:38
speevesjude: kelsin has a good explanation03:38
Judekelsin, i have rythmweb installed so i need the port to connect to it using a browser03:38
svladcjellilimpc: yes03:38
kelsinzarac: once created sonata has a right click menu to update the library when you add new files03:38
kshl_mkelsin: I get a package not found when I try to install Build_install03:38

kelsinJude: you'd have to look in the rythmweb help03:38
muuluuhow to check and fix if i have HDD error03:38
Judespeeves, yes03:38
kelsinJude: or google for it, most of us don't have every standard port memorized, just the common ones03:38
yfkJude: ports has to do with the application layer, where any high level connection in a network has a port. a machine has just an ip assigned to it, and to this ip connections can be made with many ports03:38
limpcsvladcjelli:   - hmm, why are there 2 versions of ubuntu then?03:38
beerfanc0mp13371331337_: I don't believe so. The on screen volume indicator moves but there's no change. Same with mute.03:38
speevesJude: if so, netstat -anp should show you03:39
Judekelsin, it gives an example03:39
zarackelsin, .. i don't find this update =/03:39

Judespeeves, i ran it without sudo03:39
beerfantehm0nk: System > Administration > Software sources03:39
kinGk0nGHow to change usplash theme??? Anybody know03:40
limpcsvladcjelli:  it just says "more info" for the server and desktop editions which gives a generic go-over.. but doesnt say explicitly what the difference is or provide any sort of comparsion chart03:40
speevesjude: sudo should show which processes are using which port03:40
c0mp13371331337_beerfan - That SOUNDS like an easy fix.  Right-click the audio applet in the panel, click Preferences, and try all of them til you find the one that the volume buttons work with.03:40
svladcjellilimpc: they are the same, one has a gui one does not, to put it simply03:40
Judespeeves, yea i got the ports listed03:40
kelsinzarac: it's RIGHT in the mpd man page, "mpd --create-db"03:40

limpci write software.. do realtime video encoding03:42
c0mp13371331337_theelbermungster - There should be an option to use Ubuntu's default window manager, Metacity, rather than switching to emerald.  Hold on, I'll see if I can find it.  (I don't use Compiz at all cause it doesn't work on my 3200x1200 monitor setup)03:42

svladcjelliuh do any of you run 64bit? :)03:43
speeveslimpc: until microsoft starts to support 64-bit codecs better03:43

speevesxLE: ps -ef | grep apt; kill <pids>03:46
Odd-rationaleubuntuisloved: Configuring your menu in xfce (xubuntu) menus is a bit different than gnome's03:47
ubotufsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo shutdown -F -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot03:47
Judekelsin, speeves, both the suggestions show "Unable to connect"03:47
kelsinJude: then you don't have the web panel running on port 538903:47

PhurionJava isn't working, it works fine under Opera (Slow, of course) but nothing is displayed for Firefox or Epiphany.03:47
Odd-rationaleubuntuisloved: You don't have a separate Places and System menu. Inother words, System is a submenu of applictions.03:48
Odd-rationaleubuntuisloved: do you plan to install xubuntu?03:48
kelsinJude: it's not :) either you have the wrong port, or it's not running on your computer, or there was an error or something, but unable to connect means that there isn't anything on that port03:48
ubuntuislovedno i had ubuntu and wanted to experience the xfce as its lighter on mem03:48

c0mp13371331337_tehm0nk - Piece of advice: put your /home folder on a separate partition.  Makes reinstalling MUCH easier; all program settings and files are saved, you just need to reinstall the OS on the / partition.03:53

rixthDr_willis, basically, it there a way to detect if an external monitor is plugged in? I start X, and it's on the laptop screen. I connect external screen, it switches to that (no X restart required). Disconnect external screen, X switches back to laptop screen04:03
katakaioGuys, opinions on tehm0nk's partition sizes?04:03
katakaioI would go 1GB swap, 6 GB root, rest as home04:03
kaycesame for me please?04:03
tehm0nkhow much for home will i really need?04:04
beerfantehm0nk: I wouldn't go higher than 15 or 20gb for root. home can be the rest04:04
kayce2 250gb hard drives04:04
katakaioHome is for all of your non-system files04:04
tehm0nki have 100 gigs and i'd like to have a backup area for vista still haha04:04
c0mp13371331337_katakaio - I tend to be a little more liberal with my root partition (but then again, I'm the type that installs a bunch of programs to see what's out there.04:04
shomarihow do i make an initrd image04:04
xLEhow do I compile a c++ file?04:04
katakaioc0mp1337: I hear ya04:04
c0mp13371331337_I've currently got a 20gb root, about 10gb free.04:04
katakaioI own a laptop, so I'm stingier04:04
theelbermungsterc0mp13371331337_ , but i already have ccsm installed04:04
Phurionbeerfan: Do you know what the java application is I'm to install, there are so many.04:05
beerfanc0mp13371331337_: yeah, I've never hit 10GB on /04:05
tehm0nklinux swap is a primary ?04:05
Dr_willisrixth,  enable clone and see if it works that way. Normally  the monitor needs to be plugged in when the pc boots up  or ive seen that the nvidia card ignores it.04:05
c0mp13371331337_theelbermungster - Okay, try setting in in there.  Window decoration is the place to be, and type metacity in the Command field.04:05
beerfantehm0nk: I'd put linux swap in extended04:05
kaycekatakaio: any advice on partition sizes for my hard drives?04:06
xLEhow do I compile a c++ file?04:06
rixthDr_willis, a simple clone is not good though, cause laptop screen is 1440x900, external is 1920x120004:06
beerfanPhurion: if java works in Opera then you already have a JVM installed04:06
katakaiokayce: did you say you had two separate hard drives, or were you RAIDing them together?04:06
theelbermungstergot it04:06
Dr_willisrixth,  sounds like you got some tweaking and thinking about how you want to do things to do.04:07
kaycei have 2 seperate hard drives at this time, i want to raid them togeather tho04:07
p_quarlesxLE: one that you wrote or a package you want to install?04:07
rixthDr_willis, http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Dual_Monitors#Connecting_a_second_monitor_after_X_startup looks promising04:07
Phurionbeerfan: That's what I thought, but I don't understand why it will not work.04:07
Dr_willisrixth,  may want to check the forums and google for your specific laptop and linux. see if thers a way to get the hotkeys working.04:07
katakaiokayce: can you raid them on your motherboard (i.e. in your BIOS) ?04:07
xLEp_quarles, one i wrote.04:07
kayceyes, no problem at all04:07
OseI accidentally put Tremulous in Windowed mode.. How do I put it back?04:07
Dr_willisrixth,  i normally have a tv as my 2nd monitor.  So what i do is a bit different from your needs.04:07
katakaiokayce: do they have data/operating systems on them currently?04:08
beerfaninstall sun-java5-jre and sun-java5-plugin04:08
kayceA8N-SLI Premium mobo04:08
kayceand no04:08
Dr_willisrixth,  i DO think the nividia-settngs tool enabled the 2nd monitor on the fly for me once. :)04:08
beerfanPhurion: ^04:08
kaycethey do not04:08
theelbermungsterdo I need to restart compiz, c0mp13371331337 ?04:08
kayceim on the live cd at the time04:08
katakaiokayce: good and good :-D04:08
p_quarlesxLE: Gotcha. Not a programmer, so I could help you more with the other. I believe that a no. of IDEs come with this function -- geany for instance.04:08
tehm0nkargh ok i'm confused with the type of partitions to be making now...04:08
c0mp13371331337_theelbermungster, I would, just to be safe.04:08
katakaiokayce: I would raid them in the mobo setup and then install ubuntu04:09
beerfantehm0nk: extended is just a partition container04:09
beerfanthere is a limit on how many primary partitions you can have04:09
xLEanyone know how to compile a c++ file manually?(or give me an example)04:09
rixthDr_willis, WOOOOP. nvidia-settings works perfectly, not automated but good enough!04:09
kaycei will be right back04:09
theelbermungsterwhat's the command for restart compiz?04:09
katakaioubuntu should see your raid setup as a single, ordinary drive04:09
tehm0nkcan the partitions all be incased in an extended?04:09
katakaiogood luck kayce04:09
OseI accidentally put Tremulous in Windowed mode.. How do I put it back to full screen?04:10
kayceand it did last time i had them raided and i was on the live cd04:10
SpookyETI have a bit of a problem. Oo font rendering is abysmal. Screenshot: http://aycu05.webshots.com/image/35924/2006280723373385260_rs.jpg04:10
kaycebe right back04:10
kelsintehm0nk: you can only have 4 primary partitions, One of those can be an extended partition, then you can make as MANY more as you want in the extended (these are called the Logical partitions)04:10
c0mp13371331337_theelbermungster, Hrm... pkill compiz04:10
beerfantehm0nk: bootable system partitions should be primary. home, swap, and such can be in extended or primary at your discretion04:10
c0mp13371331337_theelbermungster, I believe that's it.04:11
SpookyETbeerfan: it does not matter. in 2007, you can recover /boot even if it's extended04:11
c0mp13371331337_theelbermungster, All else fails, restart X.04:11
speevestehm0nk: what's nice about a large /home partition, is that you can reinstall and still keep all of your files :)04:11
SpookyETkelsin: any wise words for my issue?04:12
beerfanSpookyET: I said "should", not must ;-)04:12
speevestehm0nk: I even switch between Ubuntu and Debian with no issues...04:12
Phurionbeerfan: I did it and continue to get a blank Java applet on Firefox.04:12
beerfanPhurion: restarted firefox?04:13
Phurionbeerfan: I did, yes.04:13
beerfanthen I'm stumped04:13
Phurionbeerfan: No, 32 bit.04:14

Is there a way to prevent this from happening? LIke only show GNOMe apps under Gnome and Kubuntu apps under Kubuntu?05:14
bulmercishpix-> your server has to authenticate your user using ldap, typically for *nix its using /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow + group  so you have to tell the nix now you are using ldap05:14
bulmerDethlok-> okay..good luck05:15

svladcjellior use a dif user05:16
emmajanejohn_ I admit I've only tried tank girl, but it was a store-bought copy....05:16
bulmercishpix-> you have to google for the details..basically its the nsswitch and pam you have to coordinate..i dont remember those like the back of my palm05:16

john__one last question....05:40
upgrdmani have two sata hdds in my box, one with winxp, and one with ubuntu. grub is installed on the hdd with ubuntu. i cant get grub to boot winxp, i have played with the (hdx,x) repeatedly. i can only boot xp if i set the bios hdd boot priorty to the hdd with winxp. what am i doing wrong with grub?05:40
nickruddishkuvek, try sudo aptitude vmware-player in a terminal, you might get a better error message05:40
emmajanejohn__ we call those "door handle" questions... because just when you put your hand on the door to leave you think of another question....05:40
john__i just noticed that libdvdplay0 is in the feisty lib packages... but not in the gutsy lib packages... what does that mean? gotta install it manually?05:40
nickruddishkuvek, erm, sudo aptitude install vmware-player that is05:40
ubotuYum! Err, I mean, APT!05:40
SlynderdaleHmm, is the pre-release/proposed option under Software Sources safe to enable or no?05:41
nickrudjohn__, why would you need that? I mean, what package?05:41
emmajanejohn__ how did you install gutsy?05:41
john__well, hopefully after this i can make it all the way through05:41
emmajanejohn__ upgrade? or fresh install?05:41
john__i d/l and burned a cd and installed from that05:41
emmajanejohn__ then I'm pretty sure you really shouldn't need that file.05:41
emmajanejohn__ this is very weird...05:41
nickrudSlynderdale, it's an iffy thing, I've always been leary about that proposed repo05:41
dishkuveknickrud, hmm, it appears there is no vmware-player package in my repo cache, although it appears in the "add/remove" app05:42

emmajaneares623 you can use the command line to change the permissions... and the ownership...06:00
p_quarlesares623: run nautilus with root permissions to change it: gksudo nautilus06:00
=== Malaysian is now known as Malaysia
Jordan_Uares623, Why are you trying to change the permissions of something in /usr ?06:00
Jordan_Uares623, That is most likely a bad idea06:00
nickrudares623, sudo chown <you>:<you> /usr/<dir> , but sudo mv /usr/<dir> /usr/local/<dir> would be a better idea, then change permissions06:00
=== Malaysia is now known as Malaysian
ares623i'd rather not mess with permissions. :)06:01
* emmajane is more afraid of moving things than changing permissions...06:01
Jordan_Uares623, Then like nickrud said, you should move it somewhere like /usr/local first06:01
* nickrud *never* puts stuff in /usr, it belongs to the system06:02
ares623yup it is in usr/local..06:02
Malaysianhelp me06:02
ares623it is Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory06:02
svladcjelliMalaysian: http://www.make-a-web-site.com/06:02
svladcjelliwhat a great example :)06:03
ares623the default install dir is /usr/local/games/enemy-territory06:03
p_quarlesares623: what are the current ownership/permissions settings?06:03
emmajanesvladc, that *rocks*06:03
u_angelicecast sux ass06:03
ares623it says root : create and delete files06:03
KcajIs there a linux I can go download, with a good GUI, that is garutneed to have drivers for like... a Geforce FX 550587 some crap out of the box?06:04
emmajanemalaysian, http://www.w3schools.com/xhtml/default.asp06:04
KcajIt'd be good if it wasn't a huge install DVD either06:04
ares623those are the permissions06:04
Malaysianpm me please06:04
KcajOnly looking to waste one dvd XD haha06:04
p_quarlessvladcjelli: great. i won't be able to detect yellow for days :D06:04
svladcjelliKcaj: ubuntu? but there are no guarantees06:04
ares623i'm not logged in as root though.. only an admin06:04
KcajWhat are the chances?06:04
nickrudah yes, w3schools, a great reference06:04
ares623but i know the root password06:04
KcajI main it is a fairly new Nvidia card, I've had problems with other distros before06:04
emmajanemalaysian, or try: http://www.webdesign-l.com/06:05
big_areathis is really weird, i plug my headphones into why i assume is a port for a radio antena and i can hear the song playing through extreme satic but there is no sound on any of the other ports06:05
treyh0Kcaj: you can buy a box of suse at the store with nvidia drivers, or install something else like ubuntu that you download and it will download drivers for you, but they won't be "on the cdrom" -- "out of the box"06:05
Malaysianacttualy i already sign up the free hosting06:05
emmajanemalaysian, that is a MUCH more appropriate forum than this one for asking the qeustion you have.06:05
KcajOkay will it download the drivers automatically?06:05
p_quarlesares623: try allowing it to execute: sudo chmod +x /usr/local/file_name06:05
fluidhey guys; in a termianl only(no graphics manager), how do i tell networkmanager to connect to the internet via my router?06:05
KcajSo that atleast a GUI will work after install? :/06:05
Malaysianand want to use php fusion script06:05
KcajLast time I tried to isntalldrivers my self on Linux it was like a... massive headache06:05
treyh0Kcaj: yes there is a 'restricted driver manager' that pops up when you first boot into a newly isntalled ubuntu and tells you about it and lets you download -- it sets it up automatically06:06
emmajanemalaysian, I doubt a free hosting provider will support PHP06:06
emmajanebig_area you might need to check the settings for your sound card.06:06
cabrioleurKcaj, installation of nvidia drivers from nvidia website is very sweeeeeet. It works in 95% of distributions (Ubuntu is rebelling)06:06
Malaysianemmajane try to check it out.. hurmm www.ifastnet.com06:06
KcajWait so um06:06
KcajUbuntu isn't a good choice for this? :/ lol06:06
big_areaemma, how?06:06
emmajanebig_area I'm not very good with GUIs so I use (from teh command line) alsamixer06:07
scguy318Kcaj: no, Ubuntu is a good choice, via Restricted Driver Manager06:07
ares623i'm not trying to run a file though.. just copy some files from a patch update06:07
treyh0Kcaj: ubuntu is the easiest06:07
cabrioleurKcaj, ubuntu will install it's own drivers. They work.06:07
treyh0Kcaj: it installs the driver for you, you don't have to visit a website, download, run this and that, pray for miracles, etc06:07
emmajanemalaysian, I'm not sure. I can't help you to evaluate your hosting platform. You should look for a forum that specializes in this topic.06:07
KcajI'll have to just isntall it from the dvd, and then I'll be good to go?06:07
treyh0Kcaj: yeah06:07
treyh0get the 7.10 32-bit iso image06:08
treyh0fits on a regular cd06:08
p_quarlesares623: well, then, your question has already been answered. either cp the files individually, or use cp -R on a folder06:08
cabrioleurtreyh0, Ubuntu is the easiest unless you want to do things the way _you_ want. That's why I'm running slackware. But for no-brainers, it's awesome.06:08
treyh0cabrioleur: debian sid here, always and forever06:08
big_areathey're all up06:08
Kcajas in, "good to go", the GUIwill start up? :)06:09
treyh0Kcaj: yeah, even the installer starts a GUI for you06:09
cabrioleurtreyh0, there will be due time to update to lenny :-) some day...06:09
nickrudsid is wonderful, new software daily. (I *won't* say it's easier to maintain over the long haul)06:09
big_areaemma, are there settings other than the sliders? they're all in the red06:09
cabrioleurI was never a fan of debian systems. Too much chaos.06:10
emmajanecabrio, chaos is FUN!06:10
emmajaneemma, false alarm. ;)06:10
Kcaj700mb or so at 450kb/sec :/06:10
treyh0i run etch-based for servers and sid on my workstations, love the brand new, yet still stable software :>06:10
Kcajbad mirror, but, oh well06:10
cabrioleur:-D I'm too old for this.06:10
KcajI gotta run to the store anyways06:10
treyh0but i love ubuntu too06:10
emmajanebig_area generally red is good.06:10
KcajI know the installer starts a gui06:10
nickrudchaos?!! no one has better policy, it's so consistent06:10
treyh0bringing people over to linux and bringing life to debian06:10
Kcajbut I think the last linux os I tried to install06:10
Kcajwas Ubuntu06:10
big_areaya i knw, ive used the cli alsamixer before06:10
Kcajand after install the machine couldn't start xwindows :/06:10
cabrioleurI'm just waiting for stable hurd :-)06:10
treyh0Kcaj: hopefully the new version 7.10 is good for you06:11
scguy318Kcaj: no problem, you may06:11
emmajanebig_area oops. that was for changing the mic option.06:11
big_areaemma, but im not terribly familiar with anything other than the sliders, is there another menu with more options/settings?06:11
scguy318Kcaj: either attempt Safe Graphics mode, or do an alternate install06:11
scguy318Kcaj: aka text-mode based installation06:11
scguy318!installation | Kcaj06:11
ubotuKcaj: Ubuntu can be installed in lots of ways. Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation for documentation. Problems during install? See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CommonProblemsInstall and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DapperReleaseNotes/UbiquityKnownIssues06:11
KcajI mean the installaton worked fine06:11
Kcajand finished06:11
treyh0cabrioleur: yeah that would be nice, i'd run Debian GNU/Hurd for sure06:11
emmajanebig_area, there's an emma as well... use emmaj to get me06:11
scguy318Kcaj: but X didn't start in the installation? ah06:11
SpookyETi uninstalled openoffice. i couldn't get the damn thing to do the most important task -- render the bloody documents nicely06:11
Kcajand i could go in to command line, but not xwindows at all06:11
big_areaemmajane, oops06:11
KcajI tried like a million fixes06:11
Kcajbrowsed google forever06:11
emmajanebig_area np06:11
Kcajand was just, no help, but06:11
scguy318probably !fixres and/or dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg06:12
Kcajhopfully this time it works06:12
Kcajif not06:12
Kcajwhat is the default irc client I'll be getting from command line to come ask? ;D06:12
emmajanebig_area in half a second she'll be horribly disappointed that the message wasn't for her though. ;)06:12
scguy318Kcaj: irssi06:12
scguy318Kcaj: you'll have to install it I think, real simple06:12
emmajanebig_area, system-> preferences-> sound06:12
cabrioleurSpookyET, a lot of ppl complained about 2.3.x. IMHO 2.2.x is more polished and finished.06:12
scguy318Kcaj: sudo aptitude install irssi06:12
Kcajis there a lynx or something?06:12
treyh0Kcaj: applications menu -> add/remove software -> irssi06:13
Kcajso I can atleast get some web hel pfrom command line if all else fails?06:13
DrakeParkwhat's Red Hat?06:13
cabrioleurKcaj, links if you apt-get06:13
sigma_my hdd light flashes every 10 sec's when the pc is idle (desktop not laptop) - i have two sata hdd's installed, is this anything to be worried about? oh and my sats hard drives - the 250gb one is two days old and the 80gb one is less than a year old06:13
Kcajtreyh0: lol that is assuming freaking gui works, lol06:13
treyh0heh yeah06:13
emmajanebig_area do the tests work?06:13
SpookyETcabrioleur: http://aycu05.webshots.com/image/35924/2006280723373385260_rs.jpg06:13
scguy318Kcaj: you can install that06:13
Kcajdoesn't another distro use apt-get?06:13
Kcajlike SuSE?06:13
treyh0Kcaj: debian and ubuntu06:14
KcajWait no06:14
big_areaemmajane, should i leave it on autidetect or alsa?06:14
Kcajthat is yaST06:14
kaycelast time im gona ask (cuz noones answerd it yet).. do i need a /boot partition or w/e before i install? >.<    30g root, 2g swap, 217g /usr (idk what else to put it as?) 250g /home     on 2 250g hard drives06:14
KcajYeah I used Debian before06:14
Kcajso I know all about apt-get06:14
scguy318kayce: no06:14
emmajanebig_area, mine's on autodetect06:14
kaycethank you06:14
emmajanebig_area have you tried googling your sound card to see if there are any bugs for it?06:14
SlynderdaleWell, ran into a problem. Under windows, I have a static network IP set to uet under Ubuntu I am Yet when I go to network and set it to use my static IP, it won't connect.06:14
KcajI'm not Linux n00b or nothing, just had specific problems with this specific machine (graphics card in specific) playing nice.06:14
nickrudkayce, you don't need a separate /usr06:14
kaycei cant put them both as /home it says thow06:15
bullgard4I can issue the command 'sudo ./sleep.sh force'. What is the effect of the option 'force'? Is force a feature of bash, or where is it defined?06:15
emmajanekcaj, we're all n00bs when it comes to seomething. :)06:15
big_areaemmajane, i will06:15
scguy318bullgard4: I think not, probably a param that's handled in the script06:15
emmajanebig_area I remember when 7.10 first came out there were more than a few people who lost sound due to bugs for their specific cards.06:15
treyh0kayce: use LVM if you want a /home more than 250GB06:15
scguy318bullgard4: and lemme look at the script06:15
cabrioleurSpookyET, looks like antialiasing is off.06:16
treyh0does the ubuntu installer support LVM?  i don't know06:16
scguy318treyh0: the alternate installer does I think06:16
SpookyETcabrioleur: It isn't.06:16
kaycewhat exactly is LVM then?06:16
big_areaemmajane, ok i think i found a relevant bug report, ill get back to you in a bit, thanks for the help06:16
=== emmajane is now known as emmajane_brb
=== kaot_ is now known as kaot
emmajane_brbbig_area no problem, sorry i couldn't solve it...06:16
svladcjelli!info lvm06:17
ubotuPackage lvm does not exist in gutsy06:17
treyh0kayce: logical volume management, let's you combine multiple drives and define volume groups for partitions like / and /home06:17
scguy318bullgard4: the relevant section I think is on line 15 in the script06:17
nickrudkayce, or mount it as /home/you/data , but lvm is pretty06:17
bullgard4scguy318: I will have a look in the script.06:17
MorningsicknessISLE OF MAN - June 1, 2006 - At a press conference today, Canonical CEO and Free Software spokesnigger Mark Shuttleworth announced the immediate availability of version 6.06 of the Ubuntu Linux distribution. The latest version, known by its code name, "The Diaper Drake," includes special features designed to make Linux easier and more comfortable for niggers the world over.06:18
Morningsickness"Niggers have always had trouble understanding new technology," Shuttleworth began. "Computers are no exception. Some people have said this is because niggers are dumb, but I believe the real problem is that technology has traditionally been designed for white people. Ubuntu changes all that. It was developed from the ground up with niggers in mind. It will usher in a whole new era of Afro-ergonomic computing."06:18

Morningsicknesshuttleworth presented an overview of some of the features users could expect in the latest version of Ubuntu, including an Ebonics-to-English converter, African "tribal beats" sound and desktop theme, and a collection of rap music and gay pornography, "which of course will be encoded using patent and royalty-free formats," Shuttleworth added, smiling. He proceeded to elaborate, but OpenOffice.org Impress crashed at t06:18
treyh0kayce: or if you motherboard does RAID, set a RAID 0 array for a 500 GB that you can use in the regular installer06:18
nickrudnixternal, I think he's been around before, like last night06:18
DrakeParkwhat is ubuntu?06:18

treyh0wols .. yeah use software raid if the gui installer supports that, doesn't do LVM so i didn't think it did either :-/06:20
soldatsDrakePark, if you dont know why are you here06:20
wolskayce: it's no raid. it's fakeraid which means you need to use sofware raid06:20
alphaicemananyone have compiz working on a ubunto quest virtual machine using vmware on an XP06:20

Dr_willisi doubt if theres a limit to the size of the hd. its just how much $$ and  whats out.06:26
SlynderdaleOk well, I have a home network with three computers on it, currently I'm the only one on it. Under windows, my computer has the static network IP of, subnet and gateway of yet if I enter these under Ubuntu, it doesn't connect and I have no network activity till I remove the info/06:26

nickrudSlynderdale, what does your /etc/network/interfaces file look like? put it on http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org06:27
wolsalphaiceman: this is not Ubuntu related06:27
vasilisaWhy wont K3B rip dvds anymore? :( I used to turn it on and it would list dvd tracks, id select one and rip it. Now it plays a chord at me and flashes an error message so fast i cant see it, then simply lists the dvd's file structure. That is utterly worthless to me. Any ideas why this could be the case? Is it something to do with Gutsy??06:27
wolsSlynderdale: /etc/network/interfaces06:27
sn0nvasilisa: try #k3b or #kde ?06:27
Slynderdaletreyh0: The same info worked under Feisty Fawn :/06:27

nickrudalphaiceman, yup06:28
silent_Dr_willis: did you manage to get the buttons to work in both firefox and nautilus?06:28
sn0nrazorbladex401: will run under gnome, but this isnt really the channel for k3b troubleshooting..06:28
Dr_willissilent_,  i dont use them in browsers. I use them in games. :)06:29

scguy318omnilynx: might be your CD or the drive06:31
Slynderdalewols: Thats because if I se up a static IP, I can't connect to the internet at all, hence I deleted the info from network.06:31
p34rDr_willis: mm i go into /resources/ and i ls06:31
omnilynxI can check the CD, I guess06:31
omnilynxdoubt it's the drive06:31
p34rand it says mongrel_cluster06:31
p34rDr_willis: but i cant CD into it06:31
p34rDr_willis: it seems like it's there?06:31
wolsSlynderdale: either give us your static config or we cannot help you, your choice06:31
Dr_willisp34r,  if the file is in the current dir.  You dont need the full path to it to cp. Just the full path to where to cp it to.06:31
p_quarlesSlynderdale: what was the static ip config before you deleted it (pastebin)06:32
p34rDr_willis: ok well i was doing it from root, let me try from here06:32
kaycethank you guys for all your help06:32
treyh0Slynderdale: echo auto eth0 >> /etc/network/interfaces ; echo iface eth0 inet dhcp >> /etc/network/interfaces ; ifup eth006:32
wolsSlynderdale: your interfaces file needs to be right just like your /etc/resolv.conf. your IPs need to be set right and router set properly06:32
wolsthen it will work06:32
kayceima go now, take care evry1~06:32
wolstreyh0: great static IP setup that06:32
Dr_willisp34r,  you might want to isntall and learn to use the 'mc' file manager. :) its good for root user file managing.06:32
p34rDr_willis: ah seems like it worked :) odd06:32
treyh0wols: no dhcp on the network?06:33
wolstreyh0: that's not the point. the point is he wants a static IP06:33
imbecileok guys I have some free space on my hd that I want to give to ubuntu. when i click on my ubuntu partition in gparted it doesnt give me option to resize. how can i do this?06:33
p34rDr_willis: mm what's that? could you link me to a website about it, google search seems too broad06:33
Dr_willis!info mc06:33
ubotumc: midnight commander - a powerful file manager. In component universe, is optional. Version 1:4.6.1-7ubuntu2 (gutsy), package size 2058 kB, installed size 5944 kB06:33
BlistokI have an interesting problem or I'm an idiot. I just installed a WD2000 drive and formatted it with gutsy. It says on the drive its a 200GB drive but gparted shows only 186GB. Question: Wheres my other 14GB?06:33
p_quarlesimbecile: shrink your windows partition first06:33
wolsimbecile: you cannot have a partition mounted and reizs it at the same time. use a (gparted) livecd06:34
treyh0Blistok: google mebibyte06:34
scguy318Blistok: different units ;)06:34
scguy318Blistok: MB vs. MiB06:34
svladcjelliand ext3 adds 5%06:34
wolsBlistok: harddisk makers do not give you 200GB but 200 billion bytes and call it 200GB06:34
imbecilewols:  the gparted live cd didnt recognize any partitions for some reason06:34
Dr_willisand thers a % thats used as emergancy space. 5% - thats adjustable with tune2fs06:34
nickrudBlistok, the 200 is probably x1000 , the 186 is x 102406:34
wolsimbecile: use a ubuntu livecd then06:34
Blistokahh ok... didn't know if I got gyped or not or if there was a hidden partition or if I'm losing my mind (short trip) thanks a lot everyone06:35
treyh0Blistok: do "df -H" from the command and it will show 200 GB06:35
imbecilewols u r genius. i cant believe i didnt think of that06:35
Dr_willisBlistok,  the makers have been playing Numbers games like this for years. :()06:35

gnychisI'm trying to start vncserver and I keep getting this error: "Fatal server error: could not open default font 'fixed'"06:35
wolsgnychis: does X itself work?06:35
Dr_willisgnychis,  You may want to try the 'vnc4server' - ive seen that bug with many other of the vncserver variants.06:36
gnychiswols: yes06:36
gnychisDr_willis: okay06:36
Dr_willisgnychis,  is this under Gutsy? or an earlier ubuntu?06:36
Slynderdalewols: IP: Subnet: Gateway: Thats what I used in Network, its the same as the one I have no except for the static IP. Also the router is correctly set, the same information worked under Feisty Fawn (DId a clean install of Gutsy Gibbon) and it works under WIndows. What info do you exactly need to help debug this issue?06:36
Blistoktrey: ah ok, thanks...  wols: always sticking it to the little guy *fist waving*06:36
wolsSlynderdale: DNS, route output and a interfaces file06:37
Slynderdalewols: Meant IP
gnychisDr_willis: its under Gutsy06:37
Demonho-brhello, i have a usb floopy. im trying to open it, but in my computer / External floopy is saying ,, unable to mount media, probably no disc in the media06:37
p34rDr_willis: do you think MC is the best file manager to use on a server?06:37
Dr_willisgnychis,  odd. Which vncserver package did you install? theres like tightvnc, vnc4server, and i think one other. I have used vnc4server under gutsy fine.06:38
Demonho-brbut there is a disc in the media, and i have this error to any disc i put in the floopy06:38
Demonho-brwhat can i do ?06:38
* nickrud can't think of anything but mc for the terminal anymore06:38
Slynderdalewols: Alright, where can I find them? ALso I wish to apologise, I'm still a little new when it comes to linux.06:38
Dr_willisp34r,  what does being a server have to do with it. :) Its a darn powerfull/handy file manager to use in a lot of cases.   Its worth learning about.06:38
benzs_s is there a program like mspaint for ubuntu06:38
wolsSlynderdale: I already told you. scroll up06:38
MiddleOfNowhereWho has used Konversation before?06:38
Dr_willisTheres a few other console/text type file managers.. byt they are all lacking. :)06:38
nickrudbenzs_s, gpaint06:39
Dr_willisI want a Deluxe Paint Clone. :)06:39
nickrudsome people wanna win the lottery :)06:39
Dr_willisThen i could hire nickrud  to write one! :)06:39
newguysshi, just looking at my logs and I saw this: PAP authentication succeeded , what does that mean?06:39
p34rDr_willis: hehe ok thanks06:40
p34rDr_willis: i'm new to ubuntu if you can't already tell: what should I use to upload files FTP wise? just a ftp client for my os? (windows xp)06:40
nickrudDr_willis, you'd have to send me back to school, I never learned event driven programming, it came after I retired06:40
gnychisDr_willis: i just used vncserver package06:40
benzs_sp34r: filezilla?06:41
Dr_willisp34r,  mc can do ftp. :)  then theres other ftp clients as well.. the gnome file manager can do ftp also.06:41
wolsnickrud: a programmer is never out of school no matter how old06:41
Demonho-brhow to format floopy ?06:41
benzs_sfilezilla is cross platform06:41
wolsDemonho-br: like anything else with mkfs06:41
Dr_willisnickrud,  i learned programing on C64's06:41
nickrudnewguyss, http://www.modemhelp.net/faqs/auth.shtml06:41
p_quarlesbenzs_s: +1. filezilla also supports sftp, which is a huge plus in my book06:41
p34rDr_willis: hmm ok so instead of doing it via shell it's reccomended to do on an OS client? seems easiest anyway considering file selecting locally, etc06:42
nickrudDr_willis, I larned on ibm 360's (well, I exaggerate, I did a little fortran there, learned on a sinclair)06:42
Dr_willisp34r,  depends on  your needs. :) mc is in the shell..06:42
Dr_willisnickrud,  i got a sinclare 1000 hanging on the wall. :P06:42
p34rDr_willis: ok well i'll look into it then, thanks for the tips06:42
wolsp34r: ncftp06:42
Demonho-brwols, with usb floopy i need to umount and mount again for any disc i insert ?06:42
nickrudDr_willis, you are a packrat06:42
=== diablo is now known as xLE
Dr_willisnickrud,  found it at a flea market for $1 :)06:43
nickrudp34r, gftp , or filezilla, or fireftp in firefox are all usable06:43
wolsDemonho-br: making a filesystem has nothing to do with mounting or unmounting06:43
Dr_willisDemonho-br,  when inserting a disk. you must mount it to access the filesystem. but you DONT mount befor you format.06:43
Dr_willisfdisk, then format, then mount. :)06:44
nickruderm, mn p34r forgot you were terminal06:44
p34rnickrud: what do you think of smartftp? the only grudge i have against it seems that when uploading/deleting files it slowly goes through each directory06:44
p34rnickrud: so if i upload a rails project it'll take ~40 minutes, which is kind of rediculous06:44
nickrudp34r, before I started using ssh, I used ncftp as wols suggested06:44
MiddleOfNowhereHOw do I hide my IP in Konversation?06:44
wolsp34r: irrelevant. we don't do windows06:45
wolsMiddleOfNowhere: you cannot. it's never a client option. you need a cloak instead06:45
Dr_willisMiddleOfNowhere,  you dont. you CAN have a masked ip on the freenode servers however. the freenode web site has info on that.06:45

zOrKany idea ?06:46
wolszOrK: man tune2fs06:47
John_Revery 20 remounts of the filesystem, fsck runs06:47
ubotuThe "man" command brings up the Linux manual pages for the command you're interested in. Try "man intro" at the command line, or see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal06:47
Dr_willisDemonho-br,  i recall using sudo fdformat /dev/floppy (or whatever) befor.06:47
zOrKfsck runs all the time, realy06:47
Demonho-brDr_willis, why fd ?06:47
wolszOrK: please don't lie or baby jesus kills a kitten06:47
MiddleOfNowhereHOw do i obtain a cloak then?06:47
zOrKwhy would I be lying?06:47
Dr_willisDemonho-br,  its a tool to format floppys.. hence the fd name :)06:47
zOrKhow could I fix that?06:47

MiddleOfNowhere No, HOw do i cloak my ip through the Konversation application?06:50
nickrudtreyh0, that's what I wanted to know, I heard that some people were working on breaking it06:50
MiddleOfNowhereNOt just for this server06:50
wolsbrophat: create a bigger partition. resize the ubuntu partition06:50
nickrudMiddleOfNowhere, it's not a client action, you must have the irc server cloak you06:50
treyh0nickrud: i heard they did, but it requires the firewire uuid or something, check out #gtkpod here or on OTFC, not sure which network06:50
scguy318MiddleOfNowhere: you can't unless you have it tunnel through a proxy or other tunnel06:50
Demonho-brDr_willis, /dev/sdb  oO06:51
Demonho-brDr_willis, partition linux is  /dev/sda06:51
scguy318MiddleOfNowhere: and a proxy may be banned on an IRC server06:51

Dr_willisDemonho-br,  try formating /dev/sdb then :)06:51
onushow do you know?06:51
nickrudtreyh0, thanks, I'll look for that. I set up a friend recently (windows of course) and am feeling the itch06:51
wolsMiddleOfNowhere: it doesn't matter. you cannot cloak your IP with a irc client. no possible way06:51
wolsDemonho-br: why can't you format sdb?06:51
* mosno wonders what percentage of people actually buy mIRC06:51
brophatwols how do I resize?06:51

wolsDemonho-br: I asked you something pastebin it06:56
treyh0wolferine: and /etc/apache2/conf.d i mean06:56
nickrudDemonho-br, then have you partitioned the disk?   sudo cfdisk is good for partitioning , sudo fdisk -l will show your partitions as they exist06:56
treyh0plus check /etc/apache2/sites-*06:56
Ashfire908why is "Ardour GTK2" impossible to select in add/remove applications? (the check box is greyed out)06:56
Demonho-brwols, alright06:56
wolsnickrud: why would you partition a floppy?06:56
wolferinetreyh0, phpmyadmin.conf -> ../../phpmyadmin/apache.conf06:56
nickrudwols, arh, floppy, and mentioning cfdisk should indicate I'm thinking hard drive06:57
treyh0wolferine: there is an example <Directory> configuration for musicindex in the README.gz (/usr/share/doc/libapache*musicindex*...)06:57
wolsnickrud: yes. he always talks about floppies, so I ask you: why cfdisk06:57
scaldovtreyh0, forget about apache, use nginx. small and easy to configure.06:57
treyh0scaldov: cool i'll have to check it out06:58
treyh0i tried to go to lighttpd but i am too used to .htaccess and mod_rewrite06:58
nickrudwols, because I saw a mention of sdb , rather than fd0. Demonho-br the device would be /dev/fd006:58
treyh0their damn mod_magnet was a royal PITA06:58
scaldovso, what about 3d login ?06:58
wolsnickrud: no it would not, it being a USB floppy06:58
wolferineI dont understand enough about apache :/06:59
scaldovtreyh0, but download only newer version. In 7.10 is rather old one.06:59
nickrudwols, arg, snippy tonight are we. So, give him a command that works if you've been paying attention the whole time06:59
Demonho-brwols, http://www.pastebin.ca/81710506:59
treyh0wolferine: its complex, there are commands to enable sites and modules -- a2ensite, a2dissite, a2enmod, a2dismod -- enable, disable..06:59
wolferinetreyh0, its more than that, for sure06:59
treyh0wolferine: make your music config in /etc/apache2/sites-available/music; a2ensite music ; invoke-rc.d apache2 reload07:00
Demonho-brnickrud, its usb. i typed fdisk -l   and it showed sda to linux partitions and sdb to disc07:00

wolferinetreyh0, u lost me at the first one....07:00
wolferine'make your music config'07:00

treyh0wolferine: yeah, sorry, you gotta make a file07:01
wolswolferine: a2ensite, a2dissite07:01
treyh0let me put mine on the paste site if i can...07:01
wolferinei did cp default music07:01
wolferinewols that means nothing to me what so ever07:01
Demonho-brwols, wow... sudo mkfs /dev/sdb   when not mounted can format it :O07:01
wolferineis that a command ?07:01
wolsDemonho-br: you also should tell it what kind of filesystem you want07:01
Demonho-brwols, like an argument ?07:02
wolswolferine: it does to your ubuntu. and man a2ensite is especially helfpful07:02
wolsDemonho-br: like an option or mkfs.vfat07:02
wolferinethats not even proper English07:02
treyh0dont have to be rude he's trying to help :P07:02
wolferineits not rude, its true :)07:02
Demonho-brwols, i had put again the disc on the floopy.. and there is a folder named lost+found, if i formated why this folder is there ?07:03
treyh0well you don't form complete sentences or use proper capitalization either07:03

wolferinehttpd.conf is empty, if I need to add: 'LoadModule musicindex_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_musicindex.so' to it, I should just put it in apache2.conf instead ?07:06

Dr_willisDemonho-br,  windows viruses wont affect linux. :)  of course07:07
Demonho-brDr_willis, but, other phisical things can hurt my computer07:07
imbecile_wols:  should i sudo umount -a?07:07
wolsSlynderdale: the interfaces file with static looks alright. what happens when you use it? can you ping IPs in your LAN? if not, what error?07:07
brophatdo i use the install cd if I want to creat another linux partition?07:07
Dr_willisDemonho-br,  like a hammer? or a Baby with  a nail gun?07:07
wolsimbecile_: no07:07
nickrudwolferine, no, you would add it to /etc/apache.d/mods-available (in a file of it's own) then sudo a2enmod <the file name>  ; apache in ubuntu creates http.conf on the fly07:08
p_quarlesDemonho-br: yes, setting your computer on fire will damage it07:08
imbecile_wols:  sudo mount -a?07:08
Demonho-brDr_willis, like.. u know that thing.. when u put to pieces of that close, one will pull the other ? maybe my brother did put inside pieces of that on my old floopy07:08
Demonho-brDr_willis, i mean, disc07:08
Demonho-brp_quarles, i dont care..07:08
mrjuh, i've got a weird new problem. My videos are almost black and white, any video (wmv/flv/avi) any player (vlc, mplayer)07:08
wolferinenickrud, so maybe music.conf ?07:08
wolsimbecile_: I said "mount"07:09
nickrudwolferine, sure, that would be fine. Take a look at the other files in that dir for some example names07:09

treyh0wolferine: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/48297/07:09
wolferinei see a musicindex.conf already07:09

treyh0before the apache2 reload07:09

nickrudtake a look at it, it may be already created by the package. That's debian/ubuntu's real strength, the technical detail07:10

Demonho-brwols, but i like their noise07:13
wolferinetreyh0, do I create an /mp3 ?07:13
treyh0wolferine: no07:13
treyh0wolferine: the Alias /mp3 /path/to/your/mp3s will make apache read /path/to/your/mp3s when you hit http://your-server/mp307:14

theelbermungsterHi guys, could you please help me? every time I enable Compiz the window border disappears.07:16
wolferinethis is pretty ugly07:16
nickrudInvert314, a quick and dirty method would be to remove the link /etc/rc2.d/S19cupsys07:16
wolferinei guess you can edit the .css the way you like, or something ?07:16
Invert314ty nickrud07:16
MyrttiInvert314: you don't need knoppix to fix it07:16

MyrttiInvert314: wwhen your computer boots, have you tried the single mod?07:17
treyh0you have to download and set it up without using apt-get tho ;)07:17

wolferinei think I really need to do something myself07:18
Invert314Myrtti, what's single mod?07:18
wolferineno one really has what I want07:18
theelbermungsternickrud, it just switches the theme of emerald.07:18
Invert314i haven't tried that07:18
wolsSlynderdal1: and your ifconfig output looks alright? your dmesg has no eth0 messages either? is there a firewall anywhere?07:18
treyh0wolferine: you dont like jinzora?07:18
wolferinei dont know07:18
nickrudtheelbermungster, emerald is your window borders, I thought you said you can't see them07:18
theelbermungsterI wanted to use Metacity, is that possible?07:19
treyh0here's a commercial one that is pretty nice too: http://www.turnstyle.com/andromeda/07:19
MyrttiInvert314: singlle mode gives you access to root priviledges. when it says grub loading, and press esc to get the menu, do so.07:19
nickrudtheelbermungster, not sure, I really liked the look of one of the emerald themes and never used metacity07:20
mrjAnyone have any idea why, out of nowhere, video playback would be black and white in various programs, but not youtube/etc07:20
Invert314that soungs good Myrtti07:20
Myrttiyoutube is flash07:20
Slynderdal1wols: I find this really strange, its the same exact information I used with Feisty Fawn, which I was using until today. Then I did a clean install of Gustsy Gibbin, I deleted the old Ubuntu partitions to make sure it was clean and recreated from scratch. Yet Gusty seems to hate my static IP. WHen I use it, it uses refuses to work with my router.07:20
Invert314at that point i then proceeed to remove the link /etc/rc2.d/S19cupsys, right?07:20

mrjIt just randomly happened tonight07:22
kthakore_Cubexombi, no everything is on but bluetooth and I don't have bluetooth07:23
mrjI went through 19 episodes of BSG before it happened, of course on the finale it's black and white07:23
kthakore_mrj, W00T! bsg can't wait for season to start soon07:23
show can I avoid sda3 being checked by fsck?07:23
Cubexombikthakore_ For me Disabling blue tooth did it. you can disable it totally by installing sysv-rc-conf I can find a how to for you if you need it07:23
treyh0mrj: no clue, i'd usually reboot and hope it was just gstreamer broken07:23
mrjYeah, I've rebooted.07:24
kthakore_Cubexombi, disabling bluetooth killed ur hal?07:24
kthakore_Cubexombi, will it hurt if I leave it on?07:24
mrjkthakore_: I had to watch season 2's finale in B&W07:24

Invert314did i just break my ubuntu instrall?07:25
kthakore_Invert314, seg fault means ur program did something wrong07:25
kthakore_Invert314, no try a restart07:25
Cubexombikthakore_  nah won't hurt you, may just eat a few ms out of sturt up but thats all07:25
eclipse_how can I avoid ext3 to be checked by  fsck?07:26
nickrudInvert314, do you need sudo with elive ?07:26
Invert314ok ty ty all07:26
kthakore_Cubexombi, then how do I remove it cuz I have a server on here I neede07:26
brophatfor some reason I think seg fault means that the prog wrote past the end of an array07:26
Invert314nickrud, i executed that rm command with sudo07:26
Demonho-brwols, LOL !! i found menuet !!!!07:26
kthakore_Invert314, wait also never run sudo rm  unless if u know what u are dfoing07:26
nickrudInvert314, I meant, try without07:26
Invert314yes, i tried without07:26
Invert314i haven't set permissions properly07:26
Demonho-brwols, but its a notebook and when i try to boot an usb ... my floopy dont do the boot !07:26
Demonho-brwols, =( do u know what i can do to make it working.. ?07:27
kthakore_brophat, acutlay one of the reasons a program seg faults is do u invalid memory access07:27
brophatkthakore yeah kind of the same thing as writing past the end of an array07:27
Slynderdal1treyh0: By the way, that command line you gave me before didn't work :/07:27
treyh0Slynderdal1: it was for dhcp, didn't see that you wanted to do static only07:28
treyh0MUH BAD07:28
Demonho-brwols, other disc win98 boot.. :P07:28
kthakore_brophat, invalid memory access is more then just writing past arrays though07:28
kiamois there any way i can bring up the linux gui on my ubuntu server in a window on my windows machine over the network?07:28
kthakore_Cubexombi, I will log out and back in with bluethooth on07:28
Cubexombikthakore_  if you want to disable it completely you can "sudo apt-get install sysv-rc-conf" then "sudo sysv-rc-conf" in terminal, from there just scroll to the bluetooth section,07:28
brophatkthakore_ should I use the install disk to create a new partition?07:28
Slynderdal1treyh0: Oh its no problem07:29
ares623where do I install apps so all users can use them?07:29
kthakore_brophat, where are u installing the new partition same drive as the ubuntu one?07:29
ares623i mean, what directory?07:29
=== Slynderdal1 is now known as Slynderdale
brophatkthakore yeah I want to use the rest of the drive and also another drive07:29
kthakore_brophat, use gparted from the ubuntu installed on the drive07:30
ares623what directory should i install programs in so all users can have access to it?07:30
nickrudares623, depends, /usr/local is normally where you would install the program, and ln -s /usr/local/<dir>/<executable> /usr/local/bin/<executable>07:30
kthakore_that way you don't accidenlty write over ur exisitng parition07:30
kthakore_ares623, /usr/local is best07:30
brophatkthakore_ that will create the partions too?07:30
alfermphey guys some one have a Creative Zen Vision?07:31
kthakore_brophat yes it sou;ld what type of partition do u need>07:31
ares623i tried that, but the game i installed can't save profiles, probably because i have no write permissions in /usr/local07:31
kthakore_ares623, uses sudo07:31
Slynderdaletreyh0: I think wols may have died over there. :/ THough I do appreciate the help you and him offered me.07:31
alfermpCreative Zen Vision M, i have Ubuntu gutsy and Gnomad 2 but i can not transfer video files07:31
brophatkthakore_ just ext307:32
eclipse_how can I avoid ext3 to be checked by  fsck?07:32
ares623but i don't want to give others who want to play the game the sudo password07:32
kthakore_brophat yeah but is the partition u want to expand  ext3 too>?07:32
Cubexombikthakore_  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=89491 go here and tweak away07:32

Cubexombikthakore_  it's got a handy "safe list"07:33
SlynderdaleSoo..is there anyone else around here thats familiar with the network settings in Gutsy GIbbon?07:33
kthakore_brophat, so do this first earse all the partition but ubuntu and the swap07:33
donatociao a tutti07:33
lockdares623: not really how sudo works, but sudo is still probably not the right answer07:33
brophatkthakore_ gparted is not showing the other disk07:33
kthakore_brophat, did u mount it with sudo mount -a07:33
ares623yeah sudo is not the answer i want either. hehe.07:33
kthakore_Cubexombi, awesome07:33
brophatkthakore nope07:33
ares623i tried sudo, it saved fine, but again it would need the sudo password for the game to run properly07:34
Flannelares623: They use thir own password, not a "sudo password"07:34
lockdand you can enable just the game in their sudo permissions07:34
Cubexombikthakore_  no problem, I cut my boot time down to about 45s using this.07:34
alfermpSlynderdale, me07:34
brophatkthakore_ I should say sudo mount -a hdb  ?07:34
wolsalfermp: then make the directory for the profiles world writable07:34
Burn83please help me!07:34
lockdgroup writable to games would be more like it07:35
ares623oh, so sudo in a guest account is not the same as a sudo in an admin account?07:35
Flannelares623: However, even without that, sudo configuration will allow you to run the game without a password.  Although, you ought to check the configs, see why the game needs to run as root in the first place.07:35
Flannelares623: no.  Sudo passwords are user passwords07:35
alfermphow wols07:35
ares623ah ok.07:35
lockdares623: it's the alternative to having 'root'07:35
wolsalfermp: wrong nick, sorry07:35
wolsares623: then make the directory for the profiles world writable07:35
Flannelares623: but, the gameshouldn't be writing to /usr/local anyway.  It should do everything in the home folders.07:36
alfermpok wols07:36
ares623it needs to be root since the game is installed in /usr/local.. i don't have writing permisions in usr/local07:36
Slynderdalewols: Oh, I just wanted to say thank you. REguardless of having my problem fixed or not, I so appreciate the help you gave me. I also with to apologize if I got a little annoying with it all.07:36
ares623it's Enemy Territory btw07:36
Flannelares623: No, having a game installed in /usr/local doesnt mean it needs to write there07:36
alfermpFlannel, do u have some tutorial for use Creative Zen vision M on Ubuntu Gutsy07:37
Flannelares623: Unless you're talking about updates.  Hmm, and map downloads I suppose.  Have you checked the forums?  Theres a good deal of ET howtos there.07:37
Flannelares623: ubuntuforums.org, that is.07:37
ares623thanks.. i'll check07:37
brophatkthakore_ i did a sudo mount -a but gparted still does not show my second HD07:37

ares623the game is installed in /usr/local/games/enemy-territory07:38
wolsares623: chmod -R a+w /usr/local/games/enemy-territory07:38
kthakore_brophat, what was the out put of sudo mount -a and can u post ur /etc/fstab07:38
ares623that gives writing permissions to that dir?07:39
wolsbrophat: he uses a liveCD. fstab doesn't really matter07:39
kthakore_brophat, can u access u other drive from the desktop or the system place in Places menu07:39
kthakore_brb peeps gotta setup my hal07:40

nickrudNeoPhyte21, did you install the -dev package?08:37
mohkohnKyle I will dig into the docs for Virtualbox. But it sounds like it is feasible.08:38
ompaulborndeer, this is a package based distro, so it resolves a lot of dependency problems, as such compiling something that needs you to alter one or more of the things you have already installed needs to be treated with caution, I suggest you go to #ubuntu-motu and see if it can be made stable with them08:38
