neverblueyeah shoeunited00:09
soundrayBakefy: that's plausible. /boot can be tiny, unless you're trying multiple kernels. 128 MB should be plenty00:09
falloreshoeunited: yes00:09
AdemoSSlart, well originally, I never see the Ubuntu loading animation. Even when regular mode booted, I never saw the animation. I assumed it was because of my quad core, 8 GB RAM system, going so fast that the animation didn't have time to show, but I think that might be part of it...since instead of seeing an animation I see black. So when the system won't boot, I don't get much feedback on regular mode....only black.00:09

th0rAdemoS if you look at /boot/grub/menu.lst you will be able to see the difference in the options between regular boot and safe mode. Create a third menu entry for experimenting...just copy the regular boot lines and change the name a little. Then take out the options one at a time until you find what is causing the problem.00:17

Slartdavid_: the flash package downloads something from the adobe site.. and the adobe people changed it.. so they have to adapt the package to the new adobe site.. or something like that00:22

sparkeh99well, back in a while, hopefully back on here from ubuntu ^^00:28

th0rpdenapo you can delete that repo from the list. that message just means the server didn't respond. Might be a permanent problem or a temp one00:52

IndyGunFreakUltraNav: they might be on gnome-look.org and xfce-look.org00:58
scguy318queuetue: it means you should try booting with all_generic_ide, one of the possible solutions00:58
th0rAdemoS it should be read at next boot00:58
AdemoSth0r: great, will try00:58
yahoo354Jack_Sparrow: no in application all the kubuntu program are there00:58

queuetuescguy318, I enter that at the intiramfs prompt, or somewhere at the boot selection screen?00:59
Jack_Sparrowyahoo354: That should have uninstalled the entire meta-package...00:59

BachiirOkay, in mplayer, the playback is smooth, but the colors are still messed up01:00
queuetuescguy318, Just add it at then end of the boot line?01:01
scguy318Hammer89: Ubiquity may not support Vista migration, not totally sure on that, but you'll still be able to dual-boot if you've selected the right options01:01

queuetuescguy318, If this works, will I need to add all_generic_ide to all boot stanzas after the install, or is it install-specific?01:03
th0ryahoo354 have you logged out and back in after removing the package? and when you logged back in, did you change the Session to 'gnome'?01:03
yahoo354Jack_Sparrow: ok thanks do you think if i installed and uninstalled again it work?01:04

yahoo354th0r: and also all the time change the session to gnome but still have most of kubuntu application in gnome01:05
PurpZeYFlintPearce: Last I heard, it wasn't until Hardy...but, until it was fixed.01:05
PiciFlintPearce: No, you need to wait until the devs figure out how to fix it.01:05
fougDoes anyone here know how to create a .torrent? creatorrent isn't installing for me01:05
UltraNav IndyGunFreak: nice sites, but stuff not found. thanks anyway.01:05
PiciFlintPearce: Its not just a simple md5 hash update, the contents of the package were changed in a way that made it non-installable properly.01:05
FlintPearceAh right thanks. It's a annoying problem seeing as I have to keep going back to Vista to watch youtube video's and such.01:05
scguy318!brokenflash | FlintPearce01:06
ubotuFlintPearce: The Flash plugin installation is currently broken. This is due to Adobe changing the tar file that the package downloads. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=636397 if you need to fix this immediately, but it's recommended to wait for an official fix.01:06
scguy318FlintPearce: if that matters01:06

FlintPearcescguy318:  Thanks01:06
yahoo354th0r: any idea ?01:06
PurpZeYqueuetue: There is an alternate install CD...01:07
AdemoSSo in terms of NetworkManager applet, is there anyway to lock it on one wifi hotspot? Because it keeps jumping to a bad spot01:07
queuetuePurpZeY, Thanks.01:07
IndyGunFreakUltraNav: which debian wallpaper do you want?  I might have it.01:07
scguy318queuetue: yes, the alternate install CD or a net boot01:07
AdemoSI tried using manual instead of roaming, but it won't connect then01:07
th0ryahoo354 not really. I agree with Jack that removing the meta package should have removed all the kde stuff01:07
scguy318queuetue: see !install01:07
PurpZeYAdemoS: Turn off "roaming" and use manual01:07
AHAoops, wrong channel01:07
th0ryahoo354 I would go into synaptic and remove all the kde packages that are marked installed01:07
yahoo354th0r: ok thanks01:07
AdemoSPurpZeY, WiCD works fine, but it's non-standard and if I upgrade, could cause issues01:07
scguy318queuetue: with the Live CD you could also test safe graphics if you haven't already with that boot option01:08
queuetueWhoops, gave up too soon - gnome just came up while I was searching for alternate CD. :)01:08
yahoo354th0r: just type kde in synoptic ?01:08
th0ryahoo354 just a sec01:08

threefcataIndyGunFreak, i got this after run the command Package thunderbird is not available, but is referred to by another package.01:16
threefcataThis may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or01:16

th0rPurpZeY  I do have an ntfs share in samba, but have never used nfs so can't speak to that01:16

th0rPurpZeY never used nfs...always set up for a mixed network even if I didn't have to01:19

ubotuTo install Flash see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Flash - Flash 9 is now available in dapper-backports and edgy-backports - See also !Restricted and !Gnash01:25
ubotuThe Flash plugin installation is currently broken. This is due to Adobe changing the tar file that the package downloads. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=636397 if you need to fix this immediately, but it's recommended to wait for an official fix.01:25
IndyGunFreaksmmagic: yes, just download it from adobe.com01:25
smmagicAh..dumb me :P01:25
squarebracketsmmagic, as long as you're not running 64-bit, you shouldn't have any problems01:25

ubotuTanalark: The Alternate CD (available as of Dapper) is the classical text-mode installation CD. Use it if you wish to upgrade via CD, or for an "expert" mode install. For normal installs, use the Desktop CD, which is also a "Live" CD - See also !Minimal01:29
yahoo354th0r: thanks a lot it work01:29
th0rFlintPearce not really....just heard enough comments that when I installed I chose the 32 bit version....if you wait til I catch up I might be able to answer better <smile>01:29
evil_techTanalark: there ya go. you don't necessarily need it. i'm just being wierd01:29
th0ryahoo354 glad to hear it...01:29
ubotuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD01:29
evil_techTanalark: and you don't run into as many problems during install with the alternate01:29
Tanalarkheh.. evil_tech, I am a total n00b on *nix, so I think I'd be absolutely lost trying to install it by text01:30
evil_techits fairly easy and straight forward01:30

joeaminedi'm using bell canada's adsl and it doesn't want to connect in ubuntu :(01:31
Tanalarkone of the things i like the best about this distro is that it runs all of my hardware straight out of the box.  Will that change with the alternate CD?01:31
scguy318FlintPearce: glxgears? its a horrible benchmark01:31
scguy318Tanalark: no, since it uses same packages01:31
jcg42I installed a mouse theme but it only works in Firefox (even after restarting my computer).01:31

Ximalwill someone justify what i'm saying to bakefy as true ... running apache2 ... webmin etc... from normal ubuntu / vs / server edition02:21
jake2235Superbike32: you need to use root beyond just using a sudo command?  Meaning, you want to login as root?02:21
Superbike32what is the command?02:21
wj32Superbike32: sudo [command]02:21
wj32Superbike32: or sudo -i02:21
aszwet1Superbike32, su02:21
Ximalandyes bakefy no issues with speed02:21
PurpZeYsquarebracket: For some reason I can't mount it, or remount it properly...I think if I can mount /home/brian then the desktop issue should resolve itself easily....now I'd just like it to mount itself to /home/brian/NewShare/02:22
jake2235Superbike: it is su, but su is disabled by default on ubuntu02:22
aszwet1hey i'm getting this error when i try to connect to my computer using ssh: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/51295/02:22
jake2235Superbike32: You need to do a little trick to login as root on Ubuntu02:22
Superbike32thats not the command that i need02:22
squarebracketPurpZeY, you can move mounts using mount --move olddir newdir02:22
Superbike32i need to do some sudo command to allow access02:22
Superbike32to stuff02:22
jake2235Superbike32: this link will explain02:22
Superbike32i dont need actual root02:22
wj32aszwet1: do you trust what your connecting to?02:22
Superbike32but it asks if im root02:23
wj32aszwet1: if so02:23
Superbike32i need the command for it to do things02:23
PurpZeYsquarebracket: It should show up in "mount" right?02:23
Superbike32its like sudo ....02:23
twavisdegwetthe latest version of ubuntu is using what kernel..02:23
aszwet1wj32 yeah it's a local connection02:23

wj32aszwet1: client02:23
hipitihopis anyone familiar with /etc/environment ?02:23
Ximalbakefy isn't webmin a mail server or some crud ?02:23
Superbike32it asks in the command line02:23
jake2235Superbike32: You want to login as root, right, so you can issue multiple commands sequentialy02:23
Superbike32if im root02:23
Superbike32i put something there02:24
jake2235Superbike32: What command are you giving?02:24
wj32aszwet1: and how many lines do you see?02:24
Superbike32then it will allow some access02:24
Superbike32to root02:24
aszwet1wj32 202:24
Superbike32whats the command02:24
wj32aszwet1: uh what two lines02:24
squarebracketPurpZeY, what do you mean?02:24
jake2235Superbike32: If you want to login as root, do the following:02:24
aszwet1but they just look like jibberish wj32'02:24
jake2235Superbike32: sudo bash02:24
PurpZeYsquarebracket: When I run the command 'mount' the share should show up, shouldn't it?02:24
jake2235Superbike32: sudo -s02:24
wj32aszwet1: how about you rename the file to known_hosts.old02:24
ubuntu1does anyone have any experiance with BusyBox?02:24
wj32aszwet1: and then try again02:24
jake2235Superbike32: However, remember that login as root is NOT recommended02:24
squarebracketoh! ya, i would think so.02:25
Superbike32then why did u...02:25
squarebracketis it not?02:25
wj32i wish unix had a ACL system with finer control like windows...02:25
PurpZeYsquarebracket: I don't see it...at least, unless I am missing something that isn't that obvious02:25
aszwet1thanx wj32 :)02:25
wj32your welcome02:25
Superbike32i dont need to login as root02:25
jake2235Superbike32: can you explain exactly what you are trying to do that gives a command asking you to be root?02:25
Superbike32i just need to give it access to write files02:26
jake2235Superbike32: OK.  You want to use the chmod command02:26
jake2235Superbike32: I think02:26
wj32Superbike32: give what access02:26
jake2235Superbike32: give what access02:26
hipitihopLjL: Are you familiar with the ubuntu /etc/environment file ?02:26
Superbike32let the command write files02:26
jake2235superbike32: which command02:26
wj32Superbike32: give a user access or give a program02:26
Superbike32any commands02:26
wj32Superbike32: then use sudo [command]02:26
LjLhipitihop: not really, i have to admit02:26
squarebracketPurpZeY, hmm...02:26
Superbike32i use sudo, and some command02:26
Superbike32then it asks for pass02:26
Superbike32and then i go on about it02:27
wj32Superbike32: yes...02:27
squarebracketPurpZeY, when you're doing the mount command, still getting a blinking cursor?02:27
jake2235Can anyone suggest a good remote backup software for ubuntu?02:27
Superbike32aptitude install linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essential02:27
Superbike32that command needs some kind of access02:27
Superbike32to write files02:27
jake2235Superbike32: OK, so you've typed in "sudo aptitude install [blah]", right?02:28
wj32Superbike32: then go sudo aptitude install linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essential02:28
wj32jake2235: try rsync-backup02:28

wj32jake2235: its in the repos02:28
PurpZeYsquarebracket: Maybe my shares are setup wrong?02:28
wj32jake2235: except i only use it for local backup02:29
wj32jake2235: but im pretty sure it can backup remotely it said it somewhere...02:29
jake2235wj32: no equivalent of Mozy, for instance?02:29
jake2235wj32: Mozy, the online windows repo ?02:29
wj32jake2235: uh... probably not02:29
wj32jake2235: oh02:29
wj32jake2235: that kind of remote backup02:29
jake2235superbike32: did that resolve your problem?02:30
wj32jake2235: wait02:30
PurpZeYsquarebracket: I can pastebin my 'export' b/c I think that might be the issue02:30
jake2235wj32: thanks, I can just backup to a friendly remote server then with rsync02:30
squarebracketPurpZeY, that might help02:30
jake2235wj32: now if only I can figure out how to encrypt it on the fly....02:30

rikkimaru_How do i go about using the extra keys on my keyboard (e.g. volume control knob)02:39
akornArrick oh haha i have no clue then, sorry02:39
boghogshould I report a bug for this though? I'd like to use gparted at some point (though I will learn to use fdisk for now)02:40
squarebracketPurpZeY, it might be screwing up the server, though. on your desktop, try sudo /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server restart02:40
akorndarkkith doesnt fdisk format?02:40
Piciakorn: fdisk -l will list your partitions02:40
darkkithfdisk can format, if you tell it to.02:40
toresn_do any of you run icecast2 ?02:40
darkkithnot format, rather, it can repartition.02:40

boghogand total disksize02:41
boghogfdisk doesn't seem to give this02:41
toresn_do any of you run icecast2 ?  if so, how do you run icecast2 ?02:41
darkkithboghog: if fdisk lists the parts without error then maybe a bug report is necessary02:41
akornHi everyone...need some help here. I"m running 7.10, and whenever i load up firefox, no other programs, folders, or files can be opened, even after i exit firefox. anybody have ANY clue why?02:41
squarebracketPurpZeY, well as i said, it depends on if those are the actual mounted directories or not. try going places-->computer-->file system and seeing if there's a New Volume folder02:41
boghogdarkkith, yeah fdisk seems to list them without error02:41

boghogdarkkith, looks like it is a known problem, I got a ton of google hits :S02:42
darkkithboghog here i thought most people hit google before irc :)02:43

radiounixHas anyone had firsthand experience installing Ubuntu's "restricted" packaging of the legacy Nvidia (old 7100 tree) drivers on a Gutsy server/base install? I cannot use nvidia-xconfig as this driver tree doesn't have it. While I get the Nvidia splashscreen, glxinfo reports no 3D accel. The driver uneventfully modprobed. If I need to RTFM or STFW, a link or hint would be helpful.02:56
squarebracketPurpZeY, try simply sudo mount /home/brian/NewShare02:56
PurpZeYVistaSP1: Often, if one package is required for another it will install itself...And also, if synaptic is overwhelming Add/Remove is a place to start02:56
theLichKingbrucewagne1: it might be better to google flash + ubuntu and reading some manuals other than just going to synaptic and searching randomly02:56

brucewagne1So you're saying that, if I want to install Skype or RAR or Flash Player or whatever...  It's best to Google Ubuntu + one of those things, and get the package name first....  Then, go in to Synaptic Package Manager to install it?02:59
Flannelbrucewagne1: You don't need to use google, synaptic has a search built in02:59
jpiccoloTramp: and then what URL?02:59
darkkithCpudan80, whatever floats your boat buddy, sendmail is junk :)  Package: sendmail Version: 8.14.1-8ubuntu103:00
squarebracketPurpZeY, after you hit enter, is it a blank line with a blinking cursor, or does it give you the brian@brian-laptop:~$ prompt?03:00
radiounixI'm afraid I cannot help you, as I don't have a copy of that program installed. Is mencoder all set up, .etc? I'm not really sure.03:00

Superbike32how do i start using the vmware03:00

radiounixSorry, Roxanne, I suggest you go elsewhere as I've only used the program maybe five times. Tried checking launchpad and the DeveDe site for outstanding bugs? There used to be a horrific one with audio and Ubuntu's version of mencoder.03:02
Flannelbrucewagne1: There are descriptions in synaptic too, you just have to read a bit and get familiar.  Or google.  Skype isn't FOSS, so it only exists in a third party repository.  Another good place to check "first" (or second, I guess) is the ubuntu wiki : http://help.ubuntu.com/community/ which will have instructions for skype and WoW and lots of other things too.03:02

ubotuPlease don't ask to ask a question, ask the question -- All On One Line, so others can read it and follow it easily --. and if anyone knows the answer they will most likely answer. :-)03:22
crdlbslyboots: that wiki article you found was wrong03:22
davidthedrakeHow do I get my sound to work in old games such as Abuse or Airstrike?03:22
xm4nquestion: how do you install Doom 3 in Ubuntu 7.1003:22
alephantSo anybody understand the package maintainers (MoTU?) well enough to comment on how updates are pushed out?  Best case is that there's an RSS feed, or an automated listserv fed by the release process, which tells me not only WHAT was updated, but WHY.03:22
davidthedrakexm4n, I think you might be thinking of Open Arena03:23
xm4nwell, I have open arena already03:23
PurpZeYsquarebracket: Was that command supposed to return an error? or was I supposed to run that and then try to connect again03:23
xm4nI would like to input DOOM 303:23
ubotuWINE is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs on GNU/Linux. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine for more information, and see !AppDB for application compatibility.03:23
hmn_DIL: any idea how to tell the installer to continue, since i dont know what i should do in this console? i want to boot gnome and doubleclick on install?!03:23
Flannelalephant: well, you can get release notes easily enough.  But you might have more luck asking in #ubuntu-motu03:23
davidthedrakeOohhh.. DOOM 3, not Quake 3. I see.03:23
davidthedrakeUse Wine.03:23
alephantFlannel: I'll check that out, thanks.03:23
squarebracketPurpZeY, no, it would display no output if there were no errors -- so nothing is a good thing, in this case03:23
xm4nDoes WINE have capability to play DOOM 3?03:23
squarebracketPurpZeY, try re-installing nfs-common on the laptop03:23
davidthedrakexm4n, yea!03:24
squarebracketPurpZeY, and then see if mount.nfs returns a "command not found" error03:24
PurpZeYsquarebracket: re-installing as in apt-get remove apt-get install?03:24
davidthedrakexm4n, wine is designed to play many different windows based games.03:24
squarebracketPurpZeY, i'd say just do it through synaptic03:24
nickrudcrdlb: I can't find the reference to the wiki page you were talking about with slyboots , was it an ubuntu one?03:24
PurpZeYsquarebracket: But, I mean, that's the idea03:24
squarebracketPurpZeY, ya03:24
xm4nok I'll try that. I just have to install software from repository03:24
davidthedrakexm4n, if you can't get it workin, search on the internet (google) and you will probably find some results.03:24
crdlbnickrud: no, I found it just now through googling03:24
DILhmn, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation#head-ca8e337bdfab6bfa1d064371898775fe1e9e22fd03:24

ShortWavehi all03:25

squarebracketis there a script editor in xchat like there is in mirc?03:25
ShortWaveWhen I try to install missing plugins in firefox, it can't seem to find any of them03:25
cwilluShortWave, you might need to restart firefox if it seemed like they installed but didn't actually change anything03:26
WooDDoes Ubuntu detects automatically a USB Hard drive ?03:26
cwilluWooD, usually, yes03:26
hmn_DIL: THX a lot that seems to be very interessting... il try those!!03:26
ShortWaveno, it says "cannot find gcjwebplugin"03:26
Zloogis it possible to send the output of espeak to my microphone?03:26
ShortWavethen it PRETENDS it installed it03:26
nickrudShortWave: many of the plugins written for for firefox require windows, about the only ones you can use on linux are java, flash and movie players03:26
ShortWaveI restart firefox, and it's not to be found03:26
cwilluShortWave, just install java via add/remove applications, and restart firefox;  should work03:27
darkkithi must be doomed to run windows on a real computer utnil i obtain a replacement for my ipod touch03:27
darkkithor maybe buy a mac03:27
ShortWavecwillu: I installed java by installing the jre 1.6 runtime in /opt/ just for kicks, that didn't even towkr.03:27
ShortWavenickrud: well aware of that, thanks03:27
cwilluShortWave, flash is another matter, as there's been an update on adobe's part, and so the 'package' in ubuntu complains that it doesn't match what it expected; you can install it via the adobe site easily enough03:27
nickrudShortWave:  install  sun-java6-plugin03:27
cwilluShortWave, how did you install java?03:27
ShortWavecwillu: I got flash under control.03:27
nickrudcwillu: iirc the java add/remove only installs the jre03:28
ShortWavecwillu: sh jre1.6.bin; mkdir /opt/jre; cp -rv jre1.6/* /opt/jre03:28
cwilluShortWave, that won't install the plugin03:28
cwillusun-java6-plugin should be the package you want03:28
ShortWavecwillu: then of course ln -s /opt/jre/plugins/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/03:29
PurpZeYsquarebracket: Took care of all that, so far no dice. . .waiting for time out. . . .03:29
cwilluShortWave, sounds reasonable03:29
ShortWavecwillu: you would think so03:29
cwilluhonestly, you're better off using the ubuntu package, as you'll actually get security updates et al03:29
ShortWavecwillu: I'm just somewhat alarmed at Firefox not being able to find the extensions.03:29
ShortWavecwillu: I can get the plugins manually, I...just really don't want to do it manually anymore03:30
ShortWavecwillu: And I'd like this to be easy as possible, since my wife is the intended target. I can beat it into submission for me, but for her, I'd like it to be more sophisticated.03:30
WooDif I put into /etc/fstab the command ntfs-3g /dev/sdd1 /media/harddrive/ does it gonna mount automatically at startup ?03:30
nickrudWooD: if you put the ntfs-3g after /media/harddrive03:30
cwilluShortWave, the ubuntu packages have worked for me (with the exception of flash, which is kinda-sorta adobe's fault)03:31
squarebracketPurpZeY, mount.nfs still returns command not found?03:31
ShortWavecwillu: Unsurprising, flash is in a bit of an uproar these days, what with Flex/Air et al03:31
ShortWavecwillu: So...what repository do I need for this mighty sun plugin?03:31
slybootsnickrud: Its the ThinkWiki,03:31
ruz322i'm sure there is a quick article for this, but how can i make the dhcp server daemon start at bootup?03:31
cwilluShortWave, multiverse I think03:31
nickrudslyboots: then I'm not going to worry about it :)03:31
slybootsnickrud: http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Installing_Ubuntu_7.10_%28Gutsy_Gibbon%29_on_a_ThinkPad_R61#Compiz03:32
WooDnickrud, ok so in that way /media/harddrive/ ntfs-3g /dev/sdd103:32
cwilluShortWave, sun-java6-jre/bin/plugin should do it, but make sure you have any preexisting java removed03:32
ShortWaveit's troubles like this that make me stick with my mac03:32
ShortWavecwillu: simple matter of not using the path03:32
squarebracketPurpZeY, can you ping the desktop?03:33
PurpZeYsquarebracket: Still nothing on that command...03:33
cwilluShortWave, simple matter of not getting the package confused;  it's still using sun's installer, and I don't think there's any guarentee's that it doesn't do something 'intelligent' in finding preexisting installs :p03:33
ShortWavewhoah, that installs a pile of prereqs03:33
PurpZeYsquarebracket: Ping is good.03:34
ShortWavecwillu: meh, I copied the JRE I downloaded to where it's at under /opt...the name is odd enough that I doubt the installer will have an issue03:34
ruz322meh, no suggestion?03:34
ubuntu1hi. im not coming off a new install or upgrade or anything, i dont remember what i did. but the last time i restarted my computer it wouldnt boot up properly. it goes past the grub then instead of getting my login screen i get a terminal-like screen and it says "BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-5ubuntu7) built-in shell (ash)" then it drops down and instead of my username it says "(initramfs)" in a terminal style prompt. i have limited commands03:34
ubuntu1while in this, but i can tell that i am on my main partition because im able to cd through folders. i looked around the internet and the most common responce was to remove "quiet splash" and add "all_generic_ide" to the thing in the grub (pressing escape then e for edit and b to boot it up) but that didnt work for me. a few sites i looked at also suggested just messing with "noacpi, nodma, noapic, and nolapic" i tried each one of those, with03:34
ubuntu1and without the "quiet splash" there and none of it worked. What is this problem, and how can i fix it?03:34
cwilluShortWave, well, you've been warned :p03:34
ShortWavecwillu: :)03:34
ShortWavecwillu: Not my first time here ;)03:35
ShortWavecwillu: I was really just wondering about the inability of Firefox to find the plugins.03:35
nickrudWooD: no, /dev/sdd1 /media/harddrive ntfs-3g defaults[,umask=007,gid=46] 0 0 (I recommend adding the stuff in brackets to your line)03:35
cwilluShortWave, is it a fresh install?03:35
PurpZeYsquarebracket: So, as of now, all I know is, it seems that something is missing on the desktop end.....that's all I can figure03:35
ShortWavefresh and tasty03:35
ShortWaveas in I installed it last night03:36
cwilluthat's weird;  I've had no problems except for flash, and that used to work fine as well03:36
ShortWaveoh look03:36
cwillustandard firefox, not the beta or anything right?03:36
ShortWavein /usr/lib/firefox/plugins, there is no libjavaplugin.so or anything similar after running that03:36
cwilluthe ubuntu patches are required to make the deb stuff work03:36
WooDnickrud, ok thanks I'll try that03:36
ShortWavecwillu: Whatever came with the default install CD03:37
squarebracketPurpZeY, mount.nfs should return a help blurb though, not command not found......03:37
ShortWaveabout:plugins reveals...no java03:37
squarebracketPurpZeY, you added appropriate entries in hosts.allow?03:37

squarebracketPurpZeY, i think i'm all out of ideas..03:41
nickrudJay-Oh-En: tell the installer to use the whole disk03:41
bazhangJay-Oh-En: as in completely FOSS? or all gnome03:41
WooDnickrud, thanks I reboot to test03:41
ShortWavewell that's odd03:41

aszwet1why would i get that error using mysql admin?03:42
cwilluubuntu1, it's a harddisk scanner;  if it said that, then the machine was probably rebooted once while it was running a scan (would've seemed like it had frozen due to a lack of progress on the boot screen)03:42
ShortWavenickrud: nope03:43
ShortWavenickrud: just a default ubuntu install03:43
aszwet1i created the database using:   mysqladmin -uroot -p create torrentflux03:43
cwilluubuntu1, does it still give the busybox prompt if you select the recovery kernel in grub?03:43
ubuntu1cwillu: yes03:43
aszwet1then i tried  mysql -uroot -p torrentflux < mysql_torrentflux.sql03:43
cwilluubuntu1, (it'll still give you a prompt, but it'll be a bash prompt instead of busybox)03:43

cwilluShortWave, what nickrud said03:45

grekkosi assumed it had to do with the type of hard drive04:42
ganymedenickrud: but if i would like to install grub for the purposing of booting another distro (i am using the livecd to make LFS) then i should pretend that it will become /dev/hda, right?04:43
grekkosI would just set up the partitions of that drive and leave one for the other distro04:44
grekkosoh wait what's LFS04:44
nickrudganymede: no, you should use the uuid or to refer to the kernel device now,04:44

cwilluqueuetue, what zhan_zr said:  a compressed file is much more sensitive to a single bit error than a mp3 cd, a cd of documents, etc04:55
cwilluqueuetue, try booting with nodma04:56
cwilluqueuetue, some older machines have trouble04:56
tssomWhen i boot ubuntu recovery mode, and i get to the point to enter root password or ctrl+D to continue. Will pushing ctrl+D boot me straight into normal mode? or do i need to rebot and boot from regular ubuntu?04:56
queuetuecwillu, This is a very new machine, but ... what's nodma?04:56
queuetueAHA, "no dma" - nodma on the command line?04:57
lixoman100Is there a way to remove an encrypted volume from the hard drive on the alternate CD installer partitioner?04:59
ObNockShusnickrud Is the a sort of checklist that will show me the ubuntu/linux commands and what they do?04:59
cwillulixoman100, as in, delete it?04:59
lixoman100cwillu: yes04:59
nickrudObNockShus: they're scattered around, but !terminal and !apt will tell you some stuff to start with05:00
cwillulixoman100, should be the same as any other partition, unless it's not really a partition (eg, hidden inside an existing partition)05:00
nickrud!terminal > ObNockShus (see pm)05:00
hughMy computer just crashed when I had a some moderately useful unsaved texted in gedit.  Does gedit periodically cache unsaved files somewhere incase of a crash?05:00
nickrud!apt > ObNockShus05:00
lixoman100cwillu: it says I can't because it is being used as a encrypted physical volume sda1_crypt05:00
cwilluhugh, there's an option, but it's off by default I think05:01
cwilluhugh, preference | editor if you want to check05:01
queuetuecwillu, ide=nodma makes no difference.05:01
palichismaco estas aqui05:01
ObNockShusnickrud Very nice. Thanks very much again.05:01
palichisalguien a visto a maco?05:01
Shi-Langaccording to Md5Sum the hashes are the same05:01
cwillulixoman100, dunno then (haven't used encrypted file systems much)05:02
nickrudShi-Lang: then burn at a lower speed, we see this a lot05:02
cwillulixoman100, could try unmounting it from another vt05:02
bazhangpalichis: not here anymore05:02
mattholimeauquick question... what's the best way to convert a text file from dos to linux? wasn't it something like dos2linux?05:02
cwillulixoman100, alt+f2, mount, umount the matching mount05:02
PurpZeYtext file from dos 2 linux?05:02
cwillulixoman100, and alt+f1 to get back05:02
j1mchugh: there's an 'autosave ever X number of minutes' option, but you need to check the box05:02
mattholimeauPurpZeY: yeah05:02
queuetueIs there a way to do a net-only install?05:02
lixoman100cwillu: yes I'm giving it a try today so I can get the hang of it. but I just found out that I had some partitions set up on the encrypted drive that I needed to remove first, dumb me. thank you05:02
palichisbazhang, why?05:02
cwilluqueuetue, yes;  there should be a guide on the wiki05:02
ubotuUbuntu 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/UbiquityKnownIssues05:02
Shi-Langwhy the hel does it need to burn at  a lower speed? dvd's are abut a dollar each, thats going to be roughly 5-10$ in the drain when im through05:02
bazhang!minimal | queuetue05:03
ubotuqueuetue: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD05:03
queuetueI don't have a floppy drive anymore, but ... ugh.05:03
nickrudpalichis: he was shouting, and not staying on topic. If he wants back (his ban will expire) have him (or you) ask on #ubuntu-ops05:03
lixoman100cwillu: and thank you for the alt+f2 tip, that might come in handy in the future :)05:03
bazhangpalichis: kicked from the channel05:03
mattholimeauanyone? text file from dos formatting to linux formatting? i know there's a command - i just can't think of it05:03
cwilluqueuetue, you can do a netboot if you have a capable network card (most modern are, although you usually need to change the bios), and a spare computer05:03
cwillumattholimeau, apropos is your friend05:03
crackintoshCould someone suggest the proper syntax for finding all files with a ._ in front of the file name? I did 'ls -alR | grep ._* however that is not returning the proper results, do I have to escape any of those characters?05:04
theLichKingis there a program that allows you to enter tasks, organize time, put deadlines and then show this information in a neat way on the desktop or in a side bar?05:04
queuetueUhm, what "code name" is 7.10?05:04

atoponcehow long should it take to shrink a partition from 93GB to 35GB?05:05
atoponceon a moderately fast hdd05:05
cwilluatoponce, depends on how fragmented it is, and how full it is05:05
PurpZeYCan anyone suggest why my NFS client will not connect to my server? I believe I set all of the permissions according to the HowTo, I can't seem to figure out why I can't connect05:05
=== the9a3eedi_ is now known as the9a3eedi
* cwillu gave up on nfs years ago05:05
atoponcecwillu: shouldn't be fragmented, at least not bad, and it's about 1/3 full05:05
PurpZeYcwillu: So you'd use samba even for Ubuntu <--> Ubuntu?05:06
=== Ashfire is now known as Ashfire908
Jeriathok, im trying to mount from a network drive of my windows pc using samba.....when i use smbmount, i get: Could not resolve mount point05:06
cwilluPurpZeY, well, I use ssh for that (nautilus can use ssh:// urls)05:06
faliesonalright, I installed a soundblaster x-fi card and I'm using the digital I/O module (from soundblaster) to digital out (optical) to the optical in on my receiver... but I don't hear anything from my speakers when i turn it over05:06
cwilluPurpZeY, but I use samba for ubuntu->mythtv, for instance05:06
Shi-Langthere is no option to have a lower write speed with DVD's05:06
cwillumore reliable in my experience05:06
PurpZeYcwillu: I want to play my mp3s from my desktop on my laptop when they are sharing a router05:06

jw--I have downloaded Gutsy and burned it at 4x, however when i attempt to check the cd for errors on the menu, I get a line across the screen and I have to hard reboot. Any ideas?05:07
Shi-Langoh wait05:07
Shi-Langclicked cd by acciden05:07
cwilluPurpZeY, I'd go with samba,05:07
PurpZeYcwillu: The GUI install is called swat?05:07
mattholimeaucwillu - how was that not appropriate?05:07
Shi-LangAlright people, is 2.4x speed slow enough?05:07
cwilluPurpZeY, no, file sharing dialog in system will have it05:07
cwillumattholimeau, ?05:07
PurpZeYShi-Lang: The slower, the safer.05:07
cwillumattholimeau, apropos is a command05:08
PurpZeYcwillu: So, how would I set it up?05:08
dejuren!seen fatman05:08
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about seen fatman - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi05:08
lixoman100Which size should I make my /boot partition to be safe?05:08
mattholimeauah - google hit dictionary.com first05:08
cwilluPurpZeY, system | shared folders05:08
mattholimeaui'll hit man, hah05:08
cwillumattholimeau, I'm not sure if there's anything installed by default, and apropos only searches installed man's;  searching add/remove apps or synaptic should find you something though05:09
zhan_zrlixoman100: You needn't specified a indepent /boot partion05:09
mattholimeauhahahahah - that WAS a RTFM comment! nice! thanks though - i didn't know that one05:09
zhan_zrlixoman100: Just let it in / partion is Okay.05:09
lixoman100zhan_zr: in my case I do, because I'm setting my / to be encrypted05:09
mattholimeauit'll come in handy if i can remember about it, heh05:09
cwillumattholimeau, apropos is probably my favourite command :p05:09
cwillusecond only to ssh05:09
PurpZeYcwillu: Then how do I access these folders on the client?05:10
zhan_zrlixoman100: Oh ,50M is okay.05:10
cwilluPurpZeY, places | connect to server\05:10
lixoman100zhan_zr: thank you :)05:10
cwilluPurpZeY, although, what music player do you use?05:10
mattholimeauah - if anyone cared - i was looking for the dos2unix command05:10
mattholimeaufinally found it05:10
PurpZeYcwillu: XMMS05:10
cwilluPurpZeY, you _might_ need to mess with /etc/fstab then;  anyone, does ubuntu have a fstab gui yet?05:11
cwilluhaven't paid attention to that yet05:11
PurpZeYcwillu: the type of server is SSH and then the IP is the server addy?05:11
mattholimeaugah! it's not in ubuntu!05:11
cwilluPurpZeY, servername.local should work without an ip05:11
rencore_why does ubuntu never see new usb devices that i connect05:12
cwilluPurpZeY, ssh does need openssh-server installed first though05:12
cwillurencore_, what type of usb device?05:12
loganhello! I was wondering if someone might be able to help me with internet connection sharing05:12
cwillurencore_, probably need to yell at the manufacturer05:12
rencore_cwillu, if i try and plug the mouse in after it has booted then the mouse wont work and neither does my ipod05:12
cwillurencore_, that sounds familiar05:13
bazhangrencore_: new nano?05:13
cwilludoes it work if the ipod isn't plugged in?05:13
rencore_bazhang, no its an iPod Classic05:13
ouellettesrkello I have a 7" touchscreen and I ubuntu wants to start in safe graphics mode, aren't there grub options I can set to make it work?05:13
rencore_cwillu, no if im already logged in ubuntu doesnt recognize any newly added devices05:14
loganbasically, i used firestarter to set up internet connection sharing, and my xp computer can connect to ubuntu (and ubuntu can see requests from the xp computer), but ubuntu is not giving the xp computer anything at all05:14
bazhanghttp://amarok.kde.org/wiki/Media_Device:IPod rencore also some gtk stuff there05:14
rencore_cwillu, i have to restart in order for it to notice05:14
rencore_bazhang, its not about my ipod its about new devices05:14
cwillurencore_, let me backup.  if you restart without the ipod ever plugged in, will it detect new devices?05:14
rencore_cwillu, no it has nothing to do with the ipod im just using it as an example05:15
cwillurencore_, stock kernel?  what happens if you run udevmonitor, and then plug something in?05:15
irvI'm trying to streamline my boot process and I have found that every time i restart, the network manager re-enables wireless. i want it disabled by default.05:15
cwillurencore_, does anything print out?05:15
rencore_cwillu, lemme try and yes it is stock05:15
cwilluirv, go into the network settings, and set wireless to non-roaming05:16
tssomhow do you cd to a folder with spaces in it?05:16
Starnestommytssom: cd05:16
Starnestommycd "folder with spaces"05:16
irvi tried that, except the okay button is greyed out05:16
holycowdoes anyone know the name of the module the nvidia chipset would use for the nic card?05:16
cwillutssom, hit tab before the space, or type it as folder\ name\ with\ spaces05:16
rencore_cwillu, ok i removed the mouse and it detected it but when i plug it back in it doesnt05:16
* Starnestommy kicks his keyboard05:16
tssomcwillu: thanks05:17
cwillurencore_, odd05:17
rencore_cwillu, so now if i wanted it to work again i would need to plug it in and restart05:17
cwillurencore_, this is a bit of a long shot, but do you have legacy usb device support enabled in your bios?05:18
xLEcan you do more than 1 sudo thing at a time?05:18
cwilluxLE, sudo foo; sudo bar would work05:18
nick__I think you put && in between commands?05:18
rencore_cwillu, i have no idea05:18
nickrudxLE: sudo only works on the immediately following command05:18
cwilluxLE, you can also do sudo -s to get a shell, but pretend I didn't tell you that05:18
irvif i un-check the "enable roaming" box, I can't click okay to apply the settings... unless i set an ip address05:18
nickrudcwillu: sudo -i , shame on you :005:18
anoni got a question05:18
Starnestommyanon: yes?05:19
bazhangrencore_: is this possibly a poll irq problem?05:19
anonif i pause and resume my download from the FTP server05:19
anonwill i cause data corruption?05:19
xLEi mean like.. can i do 2 sudo apt-get install's on two terminals at the same time?05:19
bazhanganon downloading what05:19
loganxLE: yes05:19
rencore_bazhang, im the one asking the question so i have no idea05:19
anonand if i md5 check my download when it finishes after pausing and resuming 10 times , will the download still be ok if the md5 sum match?05:20
anondownloading Ubuntu DVD05:20
loganxLE: oh wait, well if one installer is going i don't think you can05:20
nickrudxLE: no, you can only have one apt action going at a time. Nothing to do with sudo, though05:20
xLEhow? i always get permission errors..etc05:20
loganxLE: but you can def do more than one sudo05:20
tonyyarussoanon: yes05:20
xLEk =[05:20
cwillunickrud, how is sudo -s <type type type> worse than sudo command; sudo command; sudo command?05:20
bazhanglogan: iirc that is not possible05:20
nickrudxLE: butyou can have more than one package by:  sudo apt-get install package1 package2 ....05:20
cwilluit's the same environment no?05:20
yummymummyhello all i am trying to play a few different games my husband installed for me on ubuntu. i am running 7.10 all the latest updates are installed all i get with any open gl game is a black screen anyone have any idea why is it cos i have a onboard video card ? i have the latest nvidia drivers installed from the system.05:21
anontonyyarusso, i've heard that md5 sums can match and the file still can be different?05:21
anonis this true???05:21
tonyyarussoanon: In a theoretical sense, sure.  Not in practice.05:21
logani have a question myself :D : i used firestarter to set up internet connection sharing, and my xp computer can connect to ubuntu (and ubuntu can see requests from the xp computer), but ubuntu is not giving the xp computer anything at all05:21
cwilluanon, it's true for any hash function, but md5 collisions are actually starting to become feasible05:21
nickrudcwillu: the shame on you was for even mentioning sudo -s|i :)05:21
cwillunickrud, that was the 'pretend I didn't say this' :p05:22
cwillualthough I should have made it a pm I guess :/05:22
anontonnyyarusso: Bottomline: if the md5 sum of the file match, it's a perfect 1:1 copy from the server?05:22
tonyyarussoanon: for your purposes, yes05:22
loganbasically i just want to observe traffic sent to my windows computer- the linux computer really doesn't need to utilize the connection. Is there any way to do this?05:23

cwilluShi-Lang, is it the same burner each time?05:40
Johnsonhey does anyone use eclipse notice that it opens extremely slowly or is this just my computer05:40
cdm10Johnson: yeah, it's slow.05:40
jrlenzdox: it *is* gaim, just upgraded and with a namechange05:40
Shi-LangI can only use this burner05:40
cwilluJohnson, I haven't used eclipse in a few years, but how much memory do you have?05:40
jrlenzand it seems nicer than the gaim distribution i've been running in fbsd05:40
PurpZeYdox: Pidgin IS gaim but much much better...They were forced to changed the name05:40
doxi know, but it is better than the old gaim? ;)05:40
Shi-Langas my current dvds are incompatible with all othe rburners05:41
cwilluJohnson, and do you have a bunch of big workspaces?05:41
cdm10dox: yes, imho05:41

Johnsoncwillu i don't know but its much faster on windows05:42
cdm10Johnson: that's not normal...05:42
Shi-Langcwillu, yes it is the same burner for the DVD'sas it is my only working burner05:42
cwilluShi-Lang, I'm concerned that that's the issue (may not be broken per say, but making something incompatible)05:42
Shi-Langthe cds used a different burner and same problem05:42
Johnsoncdm10 it happens to me every time i open eclipse the first .java file i trie to open errors then i can try again and it will open05:42

cwilluShi-Lang, here's a question:05:43
darkkithAUTOCOMPL on :05:43
cwilluShi-Lang, does a live cd work on the computer that burned it?05:43
kahrytanHow do I add resolution 1440x900 to Resolution panel?05:43
Shi-LangI have no idea05:43
cwilluyummymummy, there's a program I'm trying to remember the name of05:43
PurpZeYcwillu: Yes.05:43
Shi-LangI am not isntalling Linux on my desktop, I am insalling it on a Pentium III05:43
cwilluyummymummy, mean time, what does "glxinfo | grep -i direct" say?05:43
cwilluPurpZeY, ?05:44
PurpZeYcwillu: I burned my own LiveCD installed on that machine...05:44
cwilluShi-Lang, yes, but just boot the livecd (without actually installing it after it boots)05:44
cwilluShi-Lang, just to see if it's something with the piii causing an issue05:44
Shi-Langdisk checking shows "erors found in 1 file"05:44
PurpZeYShi-Lang: Have you tried a different image?05:45
cwilluShi-Lang, it won't change anything on the computer at all unless you run the installer, and click next a million times05:45
yummymummycwillu: direct rendering: Yes05:45
cwilluShi-Lang, seriously, try booting it on a different machine if you have one available05:45
Shi-Langk theres a problem here, the I/O eror happens when I am installing Linux with the LiveCD, the P3 loads the Live CD just fine05:45

iotisanyone here got a nexus-s working, that can give me some ideas05:54
Shi-Langis there a way to boot ubuntu over the network? maybe avoid the issue of a faulty file05:55
cwilluShi-Lang, double check the iso hash sums, or try installing a base system from the alternate cd, and then install ubuntu-desktop by hand05:55
jmdcMy laptop does not wake up properly from sleep mode. I get a black screen with the string "Linu" in yellow at the top left. nothing else happens for a couple of minutes. Nothing is written to the logs at all during this time.05:55
Shi-Langtheres a way to install by hand?05:55
cwilluShi-Lang, you can do a netboot if your network card supports pxe (which you'll probably have to enable via the bios)05:55
tssomhuh :S i find my self starting to wite a  reply to lots of people on irc (not just #ubuntu) but i end up just hiting backspace. this happens more and more. what does this mean?05:55
cwilluShi-Lang, or you can use wabi if there's a windows install on it already05:55

faliesonPurpZeY: I got the card because I was having trouble with digital out on my audigy2zs05:56
cwilluShi-Lang, for a net install, you'll probably need to run another live cd on a different machine that has one preloaded;  can't name one off haned05:56
Shi-Langic thanks05:56
faliesonPurpZeY: just trying to minimize the variables, thanks again05:57
cwilluShi-Lang, if you're willing, you can also install to that hard drive in a different machine, and then just put it back into the pentium05:57

cwilluShi-Lang, try booting up with all the nodma args set (can't name them offhand), and install that way06:05
cwilluShi-Lang, you can reenable dma after it's installed, but I have a hunch that it's related06:05

BachiirI'm having a problem with my video playback. Everything ends up tinted blue in the playback. If I play my movies in mplayer, I can edit the hue to be normal, but it always resets to -100, making everything blue. Other programs do not have this option, so if I want to play a video not supported by mplayer, then I'm stuck with a blue movie. Is there any way I can set the hue to be normal by default... like, is this in some configuratio06:06

Shi-Langit go past the 83% mark06:08
BachiirAnd other programs I can't even set the hue on, which is my problem.06:08

treyhello, i was wondering if someone could help out with a problem im having, im running ubuntu 7.10 and using the latest version of wine and am trying to run half life 2 but when i try to start it i get the loading screen and then it goes black06:35
nickrudbullgard4: in synaptic? I'm not sure06:35
PurpZeYtrey: You running compiz?06:35
bullgard4nickrud: Thank you very much for your help.06:35
PurpZeYtrey: Desktop effects.06:35
treyPurpzey:not that i know of how can i check?06:36
nickrudbullgard4: a point to remember: one source package may create multiple binary debs. There's roughly 8000 source packages and 20000 deb packages06:36
PurpZeYtrey: Do you have wobbly windows?06:36
PurpZeYtrey: Or rotating cube06:36
stunatraAny idea WHY they enabled the desktop effects by default on Gutsy?06:36
bullgard4nickrud: Thank you for explaining.06:36
punsadif I don't boot into X, how can I get my wifi card to automatically do iwconfig?06:37
punsadshould I just put together a script and symlink it in /etc/rc2.d?06:37
PurpZeYtrey: System --> Pref --> Desktop Effects or whatever it's called and make sure it's off completely...If it is, then we can look further, but, it would definitely cause that issue.06:37
nickrudpunsad: you would create a stanza in /etc/network/interfaces to bring it up06:37

jmdctrey: A really good resource is the wine website. They have a database of software that people have tried under wine, how it worked for them, bug fixes, etc. Lots of common problems are found there. Not taking anything away from the people who are helping you now, just thought you should know about it so you can help yourself ;-)06:38
* knoppix 06:38
=== knoppix is now known as pooms
nickrudOnyx: try a different theme06:38
treyPurpzey:visual effects under appearance preferences? if so its off06:38
jhlxdknoppix very slow06:38
Onyxnickrud: To see if the error replicates?  I like the theme I'm using...06:38
jmdcsorry to be offtopic but I misread that and saw: "Knoppix is now know as poo"06:38
PurpZeYtrey: Yes, that's it. If it's off, I'd look at the forums or the Wine website.06:38
punsadnickrud: there is already one that says auto wlan0.  how do I tell it essid and key and mode?06:39
treyPurpzey:thats what im doing now though i have not yet found anything thats like the problem im having06:39
punsadthere's one   that says auto ath \n iface ath0 inet dhcp06:40
TokoronaI'm trying to work on walking someone through telling Ubuntu not to partition06:40
nickrudOnyx: sounds like the theme wants a particular engine, I see it at http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Aurora+Gtk+Engine?content=56438 . It's not in ubuntu and I'm not familiar with it. You could compile it ...06:40
TokoronaIs there any walkthrough or such?06:40
Tokorona(or Howto, or FAQ)06:40
PurpZeYTokorona: Did you already setup your partitions?06:40
nickrudpunsad: ah, now thats a different question :) I've never done it so, sadly, all I can do is point you at man interfaces .06:41
punsadthere's also one that says auto wlan0 \nnn iface ath0 inet dhcp06:41
TokoronaI think she only has one partition for everything06:41
TokoronaOh, right.06:41
TokoronaYou're right, /boot needs to be a seperate partition.06:41
nickrudpunsad: I've only set up wired ethernet there. I didn't get wireless until recently and networkmanager has worked for me06:41
PurpZeYTokorona: Need boot and swap06:42
elkbuntuTokorona, she's going to need a swap partition at least06:42
nickrudno, boot does not need to be a separate partition (wonders why that myth persists)06:42
Onyxnickrud: Yeah, I've got that -- compiled it, which is how it got on my system...06:42
nickrudOnyx: so it seems to be saying it can't find it06:42
* PurpZeY pulls back his statement. 06:42
FlannelTokorona: /boot doesn't need to be on its own.  / and swap are the only ones you need.  (boot is only needed if the rest is LVM)06:42

Shai_AI have a problem with aMule: when loading the program for the first time, it doesn't detect any servers and when I try to press the button that's supposed to load a list of servers from somewhere, it crashes. Any ideas?06:42
Shai_Amaybe another program I can use?06:43
TokoronaRodofolo: Eh.. I suppose you could put /home on a seperate partition than /06:43
TokoronaI don't, though, because I don't really know in advance how much space I'll use in either06:43
PurpZeYPLSshowyourhelp: It means you are missing the language packages or other packages for things you're trying to turn on.06:43
nickrudelkbuntu: I did forget (if I ever really knew) what flannel said, and I guess back in the day /boot did need to be at the front of the partition, but still06:43
Flannelrodolfo: /home is where everything *you* personally own is in (well, users as a whole), and / is where everything else is (everything that doesnt have its own partition)06:43
treyShai_A:you have to find another server list by searching google06:43
Shai_Atrey: I see06:43
sam__can any one please help me in streaming????06:44
Shai_AWhy does this error occur? I tried installing the program twice and it's the same thing each time06:44
TokoronaIn any case, yeah, I'm trying to remember the dialogue options that gets you to "I will manually set up my apratitions."06:44
astro76nickrud: yeah it used to have to below cylinder 102406:44
nickrudTokorona: on an ubuntu install, 15gb is plenty for root06:44
rodolfoFlannel: I don't get it. They are the same or they represent different partitions?06:45
treyShai_A:im not sure but i think the default server list is out of date and no longer works and thats why it has to be replaced06:45
PLSshowyourhelpPurpZeY: what can i do?06:45
nickrudastro76: my first linux task was rearranging partitions for lilo :)06:45

moidekarchrisslamar: yes, but on Mandriva 2008 PP, not Ubuntu06:56
nickrudpuargs: is there anything in resolv.conf ? that's the dns resolver06:56
puargsrx: how might i do that?06:56
nickrudpuargs: pointers to dns servers, more accurately06:57

puargslol :D thank you06:58
atoponcei'm in need of lvm help. i already had a fs in place, and decided to put lvm on top of it. will this wipe my data, or am i good to continue?06:58
Flannelrodolfo: no, / is a "label" you give to a partition.  Partitions are physical things (theyre sections of the disk), the folder things are sematics more or less.  Just how linux uses those partitions06:59
markdpuargs: can you ping ips outside the network?06:59
moidekarchrisslamar: yes, when I attempted NAT and host-to-host. Currently, after reinstalling VMwS, I configured it to just bridge my VMs onto the physical LAN card06:59
atoponcei did pvcreate and vgcreate, then decided to back out with vgremove and pvremove. however, now ext3 is no longer the fs on the devices. can i get ext3 back without losing my data?06:59
Flannelatoponce: Yes, it'll reformat as a 'lvm' partition (lvm is akin to ext3 or any other filesystem)06:59
atoponceFlannel: so, i lost my data then?06:59
moidekarchrisslamar: bridging works fine - haven't had probs so far06:59
tssomThe ubuntu howtos are some of the most fun (yeh fun) and easy yet insightfull howtos i've ever read. For every passing hour i'm getting closer to removing vista ^07:00

tssomWhere can i read about the filesystem in linux? Like what is /usr for waht about /lib ? and so on07:03
moidekarchrisslamar: I don't remember exactly what the config answers were, but: a) I told vmware-config.pl that I wanted a bridged network, and said no to NAT & host-only. b) While creating VMs, chose the "Bridged" radio button for the VM in VMwS console... does that not work for you?07:03

fsanluis there a way to safely remove hardware (so i can mount it properly) in linux? lets say i accidentally didnt, and now it wont mount..07:13
abhi_i came across the most ridiculous product yet. McAffee Linux shield. can anyone tell me how do viruses 'pass' through a Linux environment?07:13
Flannelfsanlu: right click the (desktop icon) and click unmount07:13
abhi_i mean it has to be the most hogwash product i ever heard of!07:13
tssomdxdt: spellchecking is lame. Flannel: sounds scary :P cwillu: good point :)07:13
cwilluabhi_, well, they do exist, they're just limited in damage potential07:13

=== [1]Unrealcat is now known as Unrealcat
cwilluabhi_, more common for checking files served by linux (web, fileserver, email)07:14
fsanluFlannel: no lets say its already unmounted unsafely, and when i plug it in. the thing i did to fix that before was to plug it in a windows machine and safely rmeove it there.. it then fixed it.. can i do that somehow in linux?07:14
abhi_cwillu: ah...07:14
cwillusksol, system | network , and tell me if roaming is enabled07:14
abhi_abhi_: yes that i can understand running server side virus scanners07:14
abhi_cwillu: yes that i can understand running server side virus scanners07:15
sksolyes, it is07:15
cwilluabhi_, and some places are required to run something to fulfill some company regulation, regardless of the os;  it sucks, but having a product means they can sidestep the whole problem07:15
sksolok, all i did is accidentally removed it from the panel07:15
cwillusksol, did you remove the whole notification area maybe?07:15
sksoli did, but i got it back07:15
cwillusksol, if so, just right click, add to panel, find notification, and add it07:15
abhi_cwillu: but really what potential does a virus have on linux? u need to execute malicious code as super user and u need to do it intentionally07:15
Flannelfsanlu: right, the "safely remove hardware" thing is the same as unmounting it.  What is happening (is this a camera card by any chance?) is whatever originally found and moounted it upon insertion is having issues because you yanked it out from under it.  A restart will fix it (thats overkill), restarting whatever service handles that should work too (I dont know which though)07:15
sksolbut that icon is still not showing07:15
cwillusksol, k, relogging would fix it, but I think there's another way07:16
sksollemme try07:16
emmatiiaHi, I have a problem with installing PHP5 on my system07:16
abhi_cwillu: so it's totally counter productive to have a virus scanner running on a Ubuntu desktop07:16
sksolill be back07:16
cwillusksol, I think you can kill NetworkManager, have it restart, and it'll bring back the icon, but I'm not dead sure on that07:16

emmatiiaWhen I tried to download php5 either via package manager or console, it says the package is corrupt07:17
cwilluHammer89, laptop?07:17

lewwyhey guys, i just installed mythbuntu onto my media pc, and the wireless network (NetGear 54g) isn't working properly.  Network manager attempts to connect to the wireless network, and one green light goes on in the icon, but it stays that way.  Any ideas?07:17
cwilluabhi_, well...07:17
fsanluFlannel, oh its an external HDD.. thanks ill try to play with it..07:17
cwilluabhi_, defense in depth is a valid concept07:17
mnemonicacwillu, it's instatlled, and it starts up and whatnot. But as soon as it gets past the introduction movie it crashes.07:17
Hammer89cwillu: yes... toshiba satellite07:18
cwilluabhi_, definately useful for anything acting as a server for one, and in some environments it might be prudent;  the fact that 99% of a population doesn't need something doesn't mean that the product isn't useful to the last 1%07:18
cwillumnemonica, what video card?07:18
cwillumnemonica, and what version of wine?07:18

cwilluHammer89, play around with alsamixer as well, but often it can get a bit complicated07:19
mnemonicacwillu, latest version of wine... Where would I find what video card I have. I can't remember for whatever reason.07:19
abhi_cwillu: heights of paranoia. i wouldn't b surprised if Mcafee Symantec are churning out viruses themselves07:20
sksolk guy, reloggin did the trick, thanks :)07:20
cwilluHammer89, you _might_ want to make a ubuntu hardy (8.04) livecd, boot off it as a test and see if the sound works better with that (it's alpha, but it won't break anything if you don't actually install it)07:20
cwillumnemonica, run lspci|grep -i vga07:20

cwillubut if you have no luck, try the hardy cd, and _if_ it solves things, then that opens up some other possibilities07:22
jmdcI am trying to get around the fact that HP bios updates for my machine aren't available except as a windows executable07:22
cwilluHammer89, I'm not going to recommend you _upgrade_ to hardy, at least not for a few months, but if it works there, then you can often use pieces of it to patch up gutsy07:22

sksolany ideas guys? how to get the input from media keys on my laptop?07:24
fsanluFlannel, okay i experimented. it seems like lets say for a USB flash drive, that when i "unmount" it.. it still keeps the light on.. which means its still being used. so when i pull it off.. it wont let me plug it back in unless i reboot.. or i wait to pull it out when i turn of my comptuer (which turns it off)07:24

cwillumnemonica, how are you starting wow?07:25

Flannelfsanlu: I've never really done anything with external drives, so I'm going to just bow out of this support request ;)  I'm sure you'll find someone here than can help though.07:26
cwilludrgeb, they should already be going into dmesg07:26
mnemonicacwillu, I'll check that, hold on.07:26
fsanluhehe no worries :]07:26
ObeyRoyOkay, I tried making a kubuntu installation CD in Windows, but when i booted up, it got stuck at the loading... Screen. I am currently running ubuntu, but I need to make an installation CD that will work (I only have one blank CD left). Can someone please guide me through this?07:26
mnemonicacwillu, direct rendering: Yes07:26
FlannelObeyRoy: Ubuntu runs?07:26
jmdcdrgeb: I think they usually go to both. is /var/log/dmesg really not getting anything?07:27
cwillumnemonica, fair warning, I haven't run wow under intel, but I'd expect it should work07:27
ObeyRoyI used an old CD07:27
drgebcwillu I tried doing a grep for an exact message displayed in tty8 for all files in /var/log and nothing showed up07:27
ObeyRoythat i had delivered07:27
cwillumnemonica, do you know the path that wow is installed (the actual linux path?)07:27
cwilludrgeb, make sure you run it as root07:27
drgebjmdc dmesg is getting some of it07:27
cwilludrgeb, sudo lsof|grep /dev/foobar (sorry about that)07:27
drgebcwillu I am root07:27
mnemonicacwillu, I've run WoW fine on this computer under Vista... I just got rid of the damned thing though, and now I'm trying to get it to work in ubuntu. :)07:27
mnemonicacwillu, Yeah, hold on, I'll get it.07:27
cwilludrgeb, are you sure a process is using it?07:28
cwilludrgeb, try lsof|less, and search using /07:28

cwillumnemonica, and the capitalization has to be right ;p07:31
cwillumnemonica, there's a trick though07:31
ObeyRoyWhat do you mean, as a replacement?07:31
martzipAN^the tar breaks07:32
martzipAN^tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors07:32
martzipAN^is there a way to ignore errors and keep taring07:32
mnemonicacwillu, What trick?   And it didn't crash this time... But the login screen is all screwed up. I can input in the text boxes and click the buttons, but theres no text and the background is black with a couple of yellow lines.07:33
ObeyRoyI prefer Kubuntu to Ubuntu, I've used both before07:33
ObeyRoyMy problem is that I don't have a Kubuntu disc, and I need to make a working one07:33

Shi-Langso far all my installaton sttempts have failed so ill try the disabling dma or whatitscalled route07:37
cwillubrucewagne1, more configurable, with the tradeoff of less things working as simply as they could07:37
mnemonicacwillu, how would I exit WoW from the command line?07:37
jscinozbrucewagne1, KDE is more complex, but allows a higher degree of customisation07:37
ObeyRoyFlannel, how do I do that?07:37
cwillumnemonica, ctrl+c07:37
FlannelObeyRoy: Once you've got Ubuntu installed, install the kubuntu-desktop package07:37
FlannelObeyRoy: To remove ubuntu later, follow this: http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/purekde07:38
cwilludrgeb, and?07:38
mnemonicacwillu, Well... I can't get back into the WoW screen... It's not on any of my bottom panels, but the music is still playing. *sigh*07:38
cwillumnemonica, alt+tab isn't doing anything?07:38
brucewagne1Thanks Guys!07:38
ObeyRoyFlannel, where can I find that?07:38
drgebcwillu so why are these messages on tty8 not in any logs files located in /var/log particularly dmesg.log07:38
cwillumnemonica, ctrl+alt+f1 will escape to a terminal (ctrl+alt+f7 to get back), you can killall wine to kill it07:38
cwilludrgeb, weird07:39
Shi-Langk cwillu, what command do I add to disable the dma?07:39
FlannelObeyRoy: in the repositories.  Uh, open up synaptic package manager, click in the package window (where it lists the names, and start typing "kubuntu" by around the b, you'll be there07:39
cwilludrgeb, tty's are numbered from 0, that isn't tripping you is it?07:39
knoppixis there anybody used ubuntu 7.10?07:39
mnemonicacwillu, just issue "killall wine" outside of x?07:39

mnemonicacwillu, Alright... attempting.07:40
CrAzY-181only thing i can think of is that i just set up the cube desktop thing07:40
ObeyRoyFlannel:After I do all this, it will be as if I installed Kubuntu?07:40
cwilluShi-Lang, when it failed at <...installing packages...> did it say what package failed?07:40
Shi-Langk cwillu? what command do I add to disable the dma?07:40
drgebcwillu when my system starts up all log messages during startup of the machine and processes send to tty8 are not logged so its hard for me to debug right now issues that I am observing07:40
Shi-Langit failed at selecting and installing software07:40

ObeyRoyThanks, Flannel, I appreciate your help07:42
cwilluShi-Lang, before, sorry (not dead sure it matters, but that's where I always put it)07:43
cwillubrucewagne1, are you attached to running the 64bit version?07:43
mnemonicajscinoz, By the way, Legacy support or whatever in ccsm was already enabled... What does that mean?07:43
brucewagne1Mr Flannel sure is a nice guy.   :)07:43
sksolhow do i change the font color of my system clock on the top panel?07:43
cwillubrucewagne1, you might find your life simpler if you just run the 32bit version07:43
brucewagne1cwillu, I am running on an AMD64 processor....  Do I have a choice?07:43
widartohow to setup ubuntu 7.10 in external hard disk , my internal hdd using windows vista07:43
cwillubrucewagne1, yep, you can run either;  the 32bit will have better binary support though07:44
mnemonicacwillu, tried it in terminal and ctrlaltf1area and got same result: wine: no process killed07:44
cwillubrucewagne1, it just won't take full advantage of the cpu (which probably won't be noticable for many uses, outside of video editing, and similarily demanding tasks)07:44
ObeyRoyOh, by the way, my internet is running a bit slow... I remember having this problem before, and it had to do with using IPv6 instead of IPv4. Does anyone know any more about this?07:44

cwillumnemonica, one sec, let me start it up and double check the process07:45
brucewagne1cwillu, NO WAY!   you're kidding me!   I thought that since I was running on an AMD64-bit processor, that everything had to be 64-bit!07:45
mnemonicacwillu, alright, thanks.07:45
sksolanynone? i need to change my font color for my clock in the panel... it is transparent, and both the background and the font are black... cant see the time07:45

cwilluShi-Lang, it turns off a whole whack of things that cause issues on various pieces of hardware;  this is the shotgun/nuke-the-site-from-orbit approach :p07:46
cwilluShi-Lang, and it works if it installs :p07:46
Aeleonwhere are you, in cali07:46
mnemonicacwillu, Hey, I closed the terminal that I used to issue the command to start WoW the first time you asked me to. And the music stopped... But now I can't move my windows and I have no close/max/min/restore buttons.07:46

cwilluShi-Lang, you can add irqpoll to that as well, but it may just slow things down quite a bit07:48
sksolcolor of the font07:48
brucewagne1cwillu, I can just install the 32 bit version of Ubuntu then... and everything will work better...?     Then, you mentioned video editing...   Ouch.   I am planning to do video editing.... using Kino or something...   Does that mean I should stick with the 64bit version?07:48
=== _max is now known as max`
cwillubrucewagne1, well, easier, not necessarily 'better'07:48
cwillubrucewagne1, it'll still work, it just can't take advantage of 64bit code for the most part (all the libraries would be 32bit)07:48
ObeyRoysksol, I'm new too, i'm trying to find a way to change it07:49
cwillubrucewagne1, I think you can generally run 32bit binaries even under 64bit ubuntu, but it does add some complexities, and it _will_ uncover bugs07:49
sksolheh, thanks...07:49
cwillubrucewagne1, if the livecd boots, then it'll work fine07:49
ObeyRoyAre you using KDE, Sksol?07:49

cwilluone sec07:50
cwilludrgeb, a couple 'starting foo [ ok ]' lines07:50
Flanneljmdc: Your BIOS flash thing runs on a boot disk, usually.07:50
Aeleonjmdc, some hours ago someone came in and decided to do that very thing.07:50

cwilludrgeb, you can't scroll up in a vt after you've switched away though07:50
Aeleonbecause he had an exe.07:51
Aeleonsomeone mentioned freedos to him, I dunno if that helps because I don't know what I'm talking about. :x07:51

Shi-Langsorry if you alrdy anwered but i couldnt find the reply07:55
cwillulazy247x, just drag from the menu, or from the nautilus window (holding shift gives a menu of options when you let go)07:55
jscinozmnemonica, its supposed ot make the panels not show oever the game >_< worked for me07:56
lazy247xlet me try it07:56
cwilludrgeb, edit the boot line in grub, removing 'splash'07:56
Aeleonbut wine lets you use windows executables on linux.07:56
cwilludrgeb, and 'quiet'07:56
Aeleonso the logic is there, jmdc.07:56
cwilluAeleon, I'd have to have drunk quite a bit to run a hardware level utility under wine without somebody having told me they tried it and it worked :p07:57
AeleonDepends on how long you've had the pc, cwillu.07:57
ObeyRoySo, Flannel (or anyone else) It wants me to end my command with && sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop, do i forget that, since KDE is already installed?07:57
cwilluAeleon, not really07:57
brenixanyone know what to add and where to add an entry for a certain session (or dwm..)???07:57
brenixfor starup apps07:57
FlannelObeyRoy: you don't need to (but it wont do anything bad)07:57
lazy247xis there a way i can use (CTRL + KEY)?? for the calc program07:57
FlannelObeyRoy: all itll do is say "you've already got it installed"07:57
cwilluAeleon, if I hadn't flashed the bios before under wine, I'd have to be _very_ desperate before I flashed it from wine, or not very attached to the mobo07:58
ObeyRoyI bet i should log into KDE before doing that?07:58
Aeleonactually, woah, stop the presses.07:58
FlannelObeyRoy: You should log out of gnome at any rate.  If you're in a tty, it wont matter07:58
* cwillu stops the presses07:58
Aeleona simple google search has told me that people think flashing with wine is a bad idea.07:58
Aeleonjmdc, you there?07:58
ObeyRoyFlannel: TTY?07:58
jmdcAeleon: what I mean is, if it doesn't work and the bios gets messed up, I don't think I can easily restore the bios, because the only stuff hp gives is updaters that run in windows. I won't be able to get at anything if I brick this box.07:58
cwillujmdc, don't flash from wine, k?07:59
FlannelObeyRoy: ctrl-alt-f1 through ctrl-alt-f6 (ctrl-alt-f7 to get back to gUI)07:59
jmdccwillu, aeleon: thanks. I needed an intervention.07:59

ObeyRoythat scared me07:59
Aeleonjmdc, damn, i just felt a wave of guilt at the thought of encouraging you to flash your bios and having you brick your box07:59
