[ka]killerwas wondering how i change the default file browser from dolphin back to konquor00:07
ubotuDolphin, or more properly D3lphin, is the new default file manager for Kubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon. If you would like to make Konqueror your default file manager again, go to Konqueror - Settings menu - Configure Konqueror - File Associations and change the association for inode/directory and inode/system_directory to Konqueror at the top rather than Dolphin.00:07

NickPrestaFaiDillinGer, I forget how to make it accept just the Win key but you can easily bind the KMenu to the Win key plus another key.00:15

replmanHi! I have a problem watching video on my system. Each time i open mythtv, mplayer, ..., X11 crashes, nvidia-screen pops up and then the login of kde is shown. This worked already some weeks ago01:07
Daisuke-Idothe obvious question is: what's changed between then and now?01:08
Daisuke-Idohave you perhaps gone to one of the compositing window managers?  are you using kde 3 or 4?01:08
mefisto__I can't seem to get my login screen resolution to change. it's always 1024x768, but after login it is (sort of) correctly set to 1280x1024, although fonts and icons are too large. If I log out and in again, the login screen is 1280x1024, and after login the fonts and icons are the right size.01:09
replmanI don't know. Each time the kubuntu update-manager shows that an update is available i do the update01:09

intelikeyWorkingOnWise that will only display the home page you have installed.  not always the correct page for the server.01:27
=== squidy_ is now known as squidy
intelikeydraik just as i listed them.  ^    1.  root       2. kernel       3. initrd        4. boot     you only need to know the disk address   (hd?,?)   and the root=01:28
intelikeydraik and grub provides tab completion as well01:29
mefisto__draik: the "e" key lets you edit when you're in the grub menu, so just edit memtest entry, replace with what intelikey said01:29
mefisto__then update-grub once you've booted properly01:30

intelikeyWorkingOnWise if you change/edit your home page  then it's not updated with apache  iirc.   that's why i mentioned that.  ^01:31

intelikeydraik ok one more thing.     grep kernel /boot/grub/menu.lst02:23
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about vistualbox - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi02:23
dazzaKillerFlamingo: you could try virtualbox02:23
Daisuke-Ido!virtualbox | KillerFlamingo02:23
ubotuKillerFlamingo: virtualbox is a x86 !virtualizer. A !free edition is available in !Gutsy as 'virtualbox-ose'. A non-free edition is available at http://virtualbox.org for most Ubuntu releases (help in #vbox) - Setup details at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VirtualBox02:23
dazzaKillerFlamingo: vmware itself is also free, but not open source02:23
draikintelikey: ok02:23
KillerFlamingovmware wanted $18902:24
Daisuke-Idovmware *server* is free (and i believe it has less features)02:24
intelikeydraik if that didn't show anything we have work to do.02:24
draikintelikey: kernel          /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda2 ro02:24
dazzaKillerFlamingo: not for vmware server edition02:24
dazzaKillerFlamingo: that one is free02:24
draikintelikey: But it's commented out02:24
dazzabut virtualbox-ose will work as well i think, and it's easier to install :D02:25
draikintelikey: Nevermind. It's at the bottom. It only has the memtest02:25
KillerFlamingook i'll try them both02:25
KillerFlamingothank you02:25

intelikeyok   grep kernel /boot/grub/menu.lst02:35
draikSearching for GRUB installation directory... found: /boot/grub02:35
draikThe file /boot/grub/state1 not read correctly02:36
intelikeyyes that's not an error.02:36
intelikeyoh my.02:36
intelikeystage1 not read correctly could be a problem.02:36
draikintelikey: /boot/grub/menu.lst: No such file or directory02:36
intelikeydraik hmmm i'm thinking.02:37
Dr_willissounds like some files in /boot got moved/deleted02:37
intelikeydraik two ways to aproach that.   rm /boot/grub -r   and try again   or   enter the grub shell and install from there.02:38
draikThe grub shell seems interesting02:38
intelikeyroot (hd0,0)02:38
KillerFlamingoso i have a stupid question about virtual box02:38
draikintelikey: Ok02:39
intelikeyinstall (hd0)02:39
KillerFlamingodo i install generic or server02:39
intelikeyor is it setup (hd0)   ???02:39
intelikeyheh i forgot.02:39

intelikeywhat is it02:39
draikError 22: No such partition02:39
intelikeysetup (hd0,0)02:40
draikError 22: No such partition02:41
intelikeyDr_willis what do you make of that ?02:41
* intelikey is thinking by now, if that was my box i would already have installed lilo and forgoten it.....02:42
Dr_willisSounds like hes really broken somthing. :)02:43
Dr_willisor /boot is on its own partition, and not mounted02:43
* draik would rather work on the Linux box than return to windows02:43
intelikeyDr_willis no we have been playing in /boot02:43
intelikeydraik dito02:44
Dr_willishe seems to be missing a  : /boot/grub/menu.lst02:44
intelikeyDr_willis that was the reason for being here.02:44
draikI only use windows when forced. That being work and other people's computer.02:45
intelikeyit had only one entry  "memtest"   and update-grub didn't add anything02:45
Dr_willisMakes ya wonder how it vanished. and what other things it took. :) did he have a  /boot/grub/stage1 and stage2 ?02:45
smerilhow do i close a program in the bakround that is stoping me from using any other packet manager02:45
sub[t]rnlwhats: find /boot/grub/stage1 tell ya?02:45
intelikeywe rm'd the broken menu.lst02:45
sub[t]rnlor is that step even necessary02:45
Dr_willisls -l /boot/grub/menu* to see if the files even exist, and if they exist. they have actual data in them.02:46
intelikeydraik see sub[t]rnl ^02:46
Dr_willis-rw-r--r-- 1 root root    512 2008-01-17 13:15 stage102:46

intelikeyDr_willis it doesn't now.  but it did and was useless02:46
intelikeysmeril killall <name>02:46
Dr_willissmeril,  close the apps with the kill command, or  by closign their interface. depends on what you got running -02:46
intelikeysmeril and if by background you mean you ^Z 'd it,  then fg it02:47
draikfind /boot/grub/strage1 tells me..        (hd0,0)02:47
* Dr_willis is not sure what find is doing :) heh heh..02:48
sub[t]rnltelling him where to install grub02:48
intelikeyDr_willis grub's find02:48
Dr_willisOk :) that makes more sence02:48
draikDr_willis: Nope. Nothing. I only have menu.lst~02:48
intelikeydraik ok.    grep kernel /boot/grub/menu.lst~  and see if it's usable02:49
intelikeythe ~ means an editor probably made that.02:49
Dr_willisYep. Looks like a backed up menu.lst to me.02:50
draikIt's just the memtest02:50
intelikeyhmmm k02:50
intelikeythen it's worthless02:50
Dr_willishe does have the proper kernel files? Im trying to figure out wht would of removed all the kernel entries in menu.lst02:50
intelikeydraik ls /lib/modules/ /boot/vmlin*02:51
sub[t]rnltheres always the super grub disk, as a last resort02:52
RominaI am searching for a command,  equal to "emerge world"02:52
Rominathere is Kubuntu 7.04 running on this PC,  and I would like to upgrade to 7.1002:53
draikintelikey: Ok. What do you need/02:53
draikI have the 2.6.22-14 generic02:53
Rominawithout downloading an ISO Image,  burning a bootable CD,   deleting the old system and setting up the new system02:53
Rominais there any way?02:53
intelikeyonly to make sure you see a dir in modules/ and a kernel in /boot02:53
sub[t]rnlromina: sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade02:54
intelikeydraik just to make sure that the kernel was still there02:54
Rominasub[t]rnl, sounds good .... is it risky?02:54
Rominasub[t]rnl,  most packages are from the official repositories,  some aren't02:55
sub[t]rnlRomina➜ I've never ran into a problem02:55
Rominasub[t]rnl, example:  d3lphin  is dolphin for kubuntu 7.0402:55
Rominaits a packport02:55
Rominafrostwire is a limewire ... "fork" ...02:55
intelikeydraik lets run the   update-grub    again02:55
Rominait has been installed as a deb02:55
Rominasub[t]rnl, will these programs cause problems?02:55
intelikeydraik see if it makes a new menu.lst02:56
Rominahow comes?02:56
intelikeyit is supposed to02:56
draikintelikey: It asked. I said YES02:56
draikSeems I only have memtest02:56
Rominahow will dependencies resolved if they are not resolvable?02:56
sub[t]rnlRomina➜ run it and see02:56
draikintelikey: Yup. Only memtest02:57
intelikeywow.... draik i have never seen it act this way.     i'm kinda at a loss as to what to try now.02:57
draikintelikey: What if I do a copy/paste of my other laptop's menu.lst? Would that work?02:57
intelikeydraik   dpkg -l | grep linux-image02:57
Rominasub[t]rnl, thank you very much for the information you gave me02:57
sub[t]rnlno problemo02:58
draikI have the 2.6.22-14-generic, linux-image-generic and a few past versions02:58
shinda_anyone familiar with converting ac3 audio files to aac?02:58
StrangeworkWhen should KDE4 be remotely bug-free for Kubuntu?02:58
intelikeydraik yeah you can do that.   but update-grub will hose it too when it is ran, if we don't find out what is causing this02:59
intelikeydraik past versions ?   with   ii  in the first coloum ?02:59
draikintelikey: Yes02:59
intelikeyand you have these kernels in /boot as well ?02:59
draikintelikey: I figure that the menu.lst file is a crapshoot. Copy/paste from other laptop should fix it, right?03:00
draikintelikey: Yes. They are in /boot as well03:00
intelikeytry it.   if not we'll try something different03:00
draikOn it03:01
intelikeysub[t]rnl did you notice that he has several kernels installed and  update-grub  made a new menu.lst with only memtest listed in it ?03:01
sub[t]rnlcookies waiting if you get it resolved intelikey, just keep that in mind03:01
draikintelikey: In regards to the mounting and such of the usb drive, do I want to mount as user?03:02
sub[t]rnlintelikey➜ wasn't following too closely, but that is strange as heck03:02
intelikeysomething is seriously hosed.   like maybe  perl is missing or something03:02
Rominasub[t]rnl, there are 2 more questions comming into my head concerning the same problem and since you've been the one how answered my question before,  I would like to direct them straight to you03:03
intelikeydraik normally as root.03:03
StrangeworkWhen should KDE4 be remotely bug-free for Kubuntu?03:03
draikintelikey: Hmmm.. ok03:03
KillerFlamingoSo i tried the virtualbox with many error durring the install so now i will try to the VMware but it looks as though i will need to compile it my self unless some out there knows of another way?03:03
Rominasub[t]rnl, please tell me,  if I can see in advance how much traffic it will cause to do the dist-upgrade,   because my internet package plan allows me only to download 3 gigs per month03:03
intelikeydraik it's a linux fs so the permissions are not affected by who mounts03:03
intelikeyi.e. the permissions bit is on each inode03:04
Rominasub[t]rnl, next question: I just found out that there is a KubuntuDistUpgrade      Tool03:04
Rominacan it be recommended?03:04
FaiDillinGerhow can i enable numlock at login time please ? when xorg popsup03:04
sub[t]rnlRomina➜ theres several ways to get yourself upgraded.  kubuntudistupgrade is most likely an apt front end anyway03:05
sub[t]rnlupgrade | Romina03:05
sub[t]rnl!upgrade | Romina03:05
intelikeytotally opposed to M$ fs's which have no permissions bit and thus the mount command assigns an fs wide permission03:05
ubotuRomina: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes03:05
RominaThank you sub[t]rnl !03:05
draikintelikey: Ok. I copied menu.lst to /mnt/boot/grub/03:06
draikumount /mnt?03:06
intelikeyfirst umount /proc03:06
intelikeythen exit the chroot shell03:06

draikNo more flashing03:09
* draik is happy he's not epileptic03:09
Rominasub[t]rnl, is the "apt-get upgrade"  stuff really necessary?   Because it will download 342 Mb of packages03:09
intelikeydraik remember the stage1 error?   that may have been it.03:10

draikHow can I get the log from kopete?03:11
sub[t]rnlRomina➜ its recommended that your system be up to date before upgrading via repositories03:11
* intelikey wonders if that's an "i'm going to reload this thing" question03:12
Rominasub[t]rnl, ok then I will do so03:12
Rominathank you very much once more03:12
draikintelikey: Yeah. Seems that's going to be the only way.03:12

draiksub[t]rnl: Yup03:12
kadamIs it possible/simple to install Linux on a separate hard drive than Windows?03:13
intelikeydraik boot the live CD and copy the stage1* files as well      and while you are there copy your log out   then if it doesn't boot, you can reload without having to go back in.03:13

intelikeykadam linux doesn't really care where it lives, as long as it's not in ntfs space03:14
intelikeywell or vfat03:14
kadamsub[t]rnl: draik: Would it be advisable to remove my windows drive before installation?  Is there anything I should know to install the bootloader?  Will it ask me which drive I want it installed on?03:15
sub[t]rnland as we just learned, as long as grub can find the partition to boot from03:15
kadamahh, heheh, nice03:15
draikkadam: Leave it in there. It's better that way03:15
kadamdraik: If my Windows drive is a raid0 array, will I have issues with GRUB?03:16
intelikeysub[t]rnl "partition" being a key word for grub.  i don't use them   and lilo does just fine at booting without a partition03:16
sub[t]rnlkadam➜ no need to remove your windows drive before installing.  You can select the drive you want to install on from the bootable cd03:16
draikCorss your fingers... here we go03:16
sub[t]rnlintelikey➜ agreed03:16
draikintelikey: I had linux setup on a separate HDD at one point. Not an issue with GRUB.03:17
intelikeydraik i said nothing about that.   i said i don't have a partition03:17
kadamOrrr, what if I set my Linux drive as the first boot device, and install GRUB to IT?03:18
kadamhehe, sorry, I'm just scared ! :O03:18
draikInstall Linux. Use GrUB. GrUB will know what to do.03:18
draikintelikey: Sorry. Read it wrong03:18
intelikeykadam it wont hurt a thing to do it that way.  and if you feel safer to unplug the other drive/s first, do that.03:18
* draik is going to research Lasik eye surgery after the laptop boots up.03:19
kadamVery well 8)  so, just to insure, GrUB can handle RAID0?03:19

intelikeyit can when setup propperly.03:20

intelikeydraik reboot.  and at the menu  edit the line and change the  root=/dev/hda1   <<< should be that03:21

intelikeydraik lets see if you have an fs listed by uid in /dev  ls /dev03:36
draikI hve a few things in there03:36
intelikey!kde4 | woddf203:36
ubotuwoddf2: KDE 4.0 is the latest major release of the K Desktop Environment. KDE 4.0 packages can be found at http://kubuntu.org/announcements/kde-4.0.php - More information can be found at http://www.kde.org/announcements/4.0/ - Support in #kubuntu-kde403:36
draikls /dev provided quite a list03:36
intelikeydraik anything about uid or uuid ?03:36
draikintelikey: Many TTY**, but after that there isn't any UID or UUID03:37
intelikeytry  ls /dev/u*03:38
intelikeyor   ls /dev/U*03:38
draikintelikey: usb1 and urandom03:38
intelikeyok.  let me think some more.03:38
draikintelikey: Nothing for U*03:38
sub[t]rnlX9nLinuxX➜ can you run any commands via sudo?03:39
X9nLinuxXWould I need to do a complete reinstall because of a 'Conversation with su failed' message?03:40
sub[t]rnlX9nLinuxX➜ most likely no, ill walk try to walk you through it03:40
intelikeydraik i'm pretty sure you are only a module away from booting,  but i don't know which module.   if i knew your hardware i might be able to find it.  but this remote trubble shooting with "stone knoves and bear skins" is kinda awkward...03:40
sub[t]rnlX9nLinuxX➜ can you execute any commands with sudo?03:40
intelikeyX9nLinuxX sudo echo boo     <<<< that will test your sudoers rights03:41
draikintelikey: Haha. Nice way to put it03:41
draikintelikey: I thank you for your time and effort03:42
draikYou've been great03:42
intelikeyX9nLinuxX if it says boo then you are good to go,  if it doesn't say boo  then you cainT root03:42
X9nLinuxXeverything works fine except for having no access to things that want password / admin authentication03:42
X9nLinuxXPassword authentication on start up is fine...03:42
sub[t]rnlX9nLinuxX➜ right, try running the command intelikely gave you03:42
sub[t]rnltrying to see if its just a problem with kdesu03:43
sub[t]rnl(he said dapper right?)03:43

ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about ac52dec - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi03:54
Daisuke-Idoare you sure that's the name?03:54
Daisuke-Idobecause if there's *nothing* on google...  you've probably got it spelled wrong03:55
shinda__well there are articles on how to use it on google, and even found it mentioned in an old ubuntus repositary but nothing more then that03:55
sub[t]rnlX9nLinuxX➜ get it working?03:56

Daisuke-Idoffmpeg would be your best bet03:58
X9nLinuxXtime stame too far in future again03:58
sub[t]rnlX9nLinuxX➜ have you rebooted since the errors?  I don't really like to suggest it, but I'm sure that will clear up the problem03:59
X9nLinuxXno... but will do that now04:00
X9nLinuxXit does allow login on startup ok... but then after that... no joy about admin access anywhere04:01
X9nLinuxX(that was earlier today)04:01
sub[t]rnlthe timestamps are stored in your /var/run/sudo/ as far as I know.04:02
sub[t]rnlrebooting should straighten it out04:02
X9nLinuxXis this perhaps related to the time being wrong so its not happy to let an 'alien' login to the computer because of the time screwup?04:02
sub[t]rnlyeah, its directly related04:03
fantom210is there a channel to talk about fedora?04:03
X9nLinuxXmachine is slower than hobbes, but at least it gives me a chance to play linux unmolested by things like 'productivity' and 'work' until confidence in the system settles in more04:04
kadamWhat's the best FS to use if I want to read and write from linux and Windows?  Is there something that can handle, say, 90GB partitions?04:05
X9nLinuxXthis channel & the brains here are the 'make or break' that made me choose Kubuntu over other choices.  Everybody is great here pretty regular04:05

Sakkath_I was just being lazy04:32

Rominaanyone here with experiences with a "dist-upgrade" ?04:39
RominaI have done "aptitude upgrade" which just finished  (342 MB new programs :)04:40
Rominanow I want to do  "apt-get dist-upgrade"04:40
Scunizigo for it04:40
Rominathere are just 2 things I worry about:04:40
Scuniziit won't upgrade to the next version of ubuntu/kubuntu04:40
Romina1) do I need to alter  /etc/apt/sources.list   and fill in the  Gutsy (7.10)  sources instead of the 7.04  sources?04:41
ScuniziRomina: you're upgrading from 7.04.. ?  don't take my advice I borked my upgrade.04:41
sherl0kwasn't the syntax changed to sudo do-upgrade in 7.04?04:41
sherl0kinstead of a dist-upgrade04:41
Rominasherl0k, no clue yet04:42
sherl0ki'm pretty sure that will upgrade you04:42
RominaScunizi, so you think I should NOT upgrade?04:42
sherl0kand your sources.list won't change04:42
Sakkath_Scunizi: well.. apparently it was the nv driver. i guess i *could* do it w/the 'safe' options and then do the real nvidia driver later.04:42
sherl0kyou don't need to change them04:42
ScuniziSakkath_: so vesa is working?04:42
Rominado I need to chance my  /etc/apt/sources.list by hand?04:42
sherl0kthe upgrade process does it all for you, at least for the main ubuntu repositories04:42
Sakkath_Scunizi: yes, w/startx at least04:42
Rominaif yes - before of after the dist upgrade?04:42
ubotuFor upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes04:42
ScuniziSakkath_: high 5 to you..!  finally..04:42
sherl0kthat works too :)04:42
sherl0kthanks ere4si04:43
ScuniziSakkath_: so are you going to do an actual install?04:43
Sakkath_Scunizi: maybe.04:43
Sakkath_Scunizi: :P04:43
ScuniziSakkath_: after all that ..? what's holding you back?04:44
Sakkath_Scunizi: i WAS gonna, but i donno, i think i might try out debian XD. at least this help will help me elsewhere04:44
sherl0khey anyone by chance know much about mysql server confs?04:44
Sakkath_Scunizi: i'll install it for now at least since i already have it downloaded & burned. one day i'l lput debian, just lazy for now.04:44
Sakkath_sherl0k: man does (:04:44
ScuniziSakkath_: I tried debian. nice .. stable.. but syntax is a little different using apt04:44
sherl0kSakkath_, yeah man doesn't help me much in this situation04:44
Sakkath_sherl0k: don't ask to ask--just ask your question.04:45
Sakkath_Don't be so ambiguous (:04:45
ScuniziSakkath_: you could always install kubuntu and then vmware then debian in a vm04:45
sherl0kthe debian remark reminded me of my problem i'm having04:45
Sakkath_do you really want/think someone is gonna sit here and say 'yes i'm familiar with mysql server confs' (:04:45
sherl0kgot an ubuntu box and a debian box, both have mysql server04:45
Sakkath_'cause i could be, but i donno how extensive of a problem you have04:45
sherl0kthe debian box, when running mysql, has multiple processes for it04:45
Sakkath_so i abstain04:45
sherl0kand the ubuntu box only has one04:45
Rominaere4si, I looked at this page ...04:46
Scunizisherl0k: you could try #ubuntu-server04:46
Sakkath_Scunizi: i could, if i had infinite disk space. if i were to do that i'd just put both on a vm on my windows and screw the dual-boot lol04:46
sherl0ki tried there :(04:46
Sakkath_or #mysql (:04:46
Rominaere4si, but it tells me how to do it graphically04:46
Rominaere4si, I wanted to stick to the shell04:46
sherl0khaha yeah i forgot about that04:46

kalorinI'd just make another machine personally05:31
Sakkaththat's not even the problem atm05:31
Sakkathit's just getting fdisk to realize /dev/sdb obviously contains a valid partiton table05:32
ubuntuyay a machine perwsonality05:32
kalorinsakkath, if you type p does it print the partition table or no?05:32
mantan i left my machine for a week (turned off), it was using 1152x864 for rez. I came back and the thing is set at 1920x1440 and is all dicked. now it won't let me change rez. wtf is going on?05:32
kalorinperhaps it's because of the fake raid thing05:32
Sakkathkalorin: not everyything is available when you are 17. especially a 2nd good gfx card to handle aiglx05:32
Sakkathkalorin: that's os-transparent05:32
kalorinnot to linux05:32
Sakkathkalorin: only to 'help' windows.05:32
Sakkathkalorin: yes, to linux.05:33
kalorinif your'e talking about he motherboard stuff, it's not05:33
Sakkathto windows, not logically, physically yes05:33
kalorinor wasnt' a while back when I tried it05:33
Sakkathkalorin: it is, wanna bet on it? :)05:33
kalorinclearly it's working well for you05:33
Sakkathonly real raid would be05:33
Sakkathkalorin: i've had experience05:33
SakkathHow else would I be able to hdparm both /dev/sda and /dev/sdb?05:33
kalorinwell, you're the expert then, why are you here asking us for help?05:33
Sakkathfdisk clearly distinguishes between the two05:33
kalorinright, if they're raided in a mirror, then how would you see two drives?05:34
kalorinperhasp I'm not understanding what you're saying you're having issue with05:34
Sakkathkalorin: I fail to see why /dev/sdb does not contain a vali dpartition table. i've never used fakeraid for linux, was about to, then learned about it's built-in software raid.05:34
Sakkathkalorin: because it's os-transparent05:34
Sakkathit should show NTFS anyways05:34
Sakkathi wouldn't think it's 'part' of a partition table05:34
surgymantan: use this command to change you res "kdesu kate /etx/X11/xorg.conf" and look where it says "screen" you can edit it there, but remember to restart computer after the changes05:34
Sakkathand it's striped, anyways05:34
kalorinit's striped?05:35
Sakkathkalorin: i have to resize my partition (ntfsresize) then repartition with fdisk, then somenhow install it with this fakeraid guide.05:35
kalorinno idea what it'd make of that05:35
Sakkathkalorin: theoretically it should see it. linux sw raid will show both as the right partition type05:35
Sakkaththe raid devices are different devices --/dev/mdn where n is an int05:35
kalorindepends where the partition table is written, if it's on the first drive first stripe then you wouldn't get a partition table on the 2nd drive05:35
Sakkathkalorin: i would have thought that wouldn't matter, but maybe with striped it would. i have no clue how windows does that05:36
surgySakkath: why not just run them in ide mode and use each hdd for a different os? make things easy on yourself05:36
kalorinlinux is somewhat smarter tahn windows, and usually there's a windows driver of some kind you have to use don't you?05:36
Sakkathsurgy: i don't need that much room for linux, i do need more than what an indiv. drive can give me for windows05:36
Sakkathkalorin: yes05:36
Sakkathit would be 'nvraid' on linux, i think05:36
kalorinsakkath, why not just do 2 partitions of one drive then, put linux on 1 and windows on the other05:37
kalorinthen format the other drive vfat and use it for both :)05:37
Sakkathkalorin: because i've had windows on these drives for a very long time05:37
surgysakkath i have a 10gb ide drive you can have if you pay for shipping05:37
SakkathIt's supposed to be possible.05:37
kalorinso is antigravity05:37
kalorinand wormholes05:37
surgysakkath, probably is, its just not something people do unless its the last choice i think05:37
Sakkathhttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto <-- this is what i'm referring to by the way05:38
kalorinI'm not saying it's not, I'm saying I don't have a clue how you would05:38
Sakkathoh, and by the way: fdisk /dev/sdb shows *nothing*05:39
kalorinYour mileage may vary with other versions.05:39
Sakkatheven if there is no filesystem on there, it still has to be partitioned somehow?05:39
Sakkathkalorin: well theor. things should not be too different, maybe just a few things.05:39
kalorinagain, it depends on where it wrote the partition table05:40
kalorinI suspect it's on the 1st stripe of the 1st drive05:40
Sakkathi wouldn't think a drive would funct. properly without anything :/05:41
kalorinthus you see nothing that makes any sense on the 2nd drive05:41
Sakkathbut hey, i donno how windows does it.05:41
Sakkathis this guide assuming everyone uses mirroring?05:41
kalorinmight be05:41
kalorinI never use stripe sets05:41
kalorinperformance is better I guess, but catastrophic data loss changes are doubled05:41
kalorinminimally raid 5 to stripe05:42
Sakkathsfdisk: ERROR: sector 0 does not have an msdos signature /dev/sdb: unrecognized partition table type05:42
kalorinnever a pair of drives, it's just begging to lose everything05:42
SakkathNo partitions found05:42
Sakkathkalorin: don't jynx me, lol.05:42
Sakkathwell, sfdisk shows slightly more than fdisk05:42
kalorinjust saying05:42
kalorinI buy disks in pairs, and lazy mirror them05:42
kalorinunmount and spin one down when I'm not using it, every night at 4am or so I spin it up, mount it, rsync it, and spin it back down again05:43
kalorinthen I have undelete for a day05:43
kalorinalong with data integrity05:43
kalorinit's more expensive but I don't lose anything05:43
Sakkathi'm gonna have to ntfresize and use fdisk on the 2nd disk SOMEHOW. so there has to be a way to recognize that partition table05:44
Sakkathchrist. i think because it's striped i've got no luck whatsoever.05:46
Sakkathwindows xp can't resize a partition so how else cna i do it?05:46
Sakkathunless somehow i can d/l a util. for windows05:46
Sakkathif i can resize and make fdisk no something is there, i can repartition05:46
kalorinyeah good luck with that05:46
Sakkathvista has a resizer, meh.05:47
Sakkathwhy can't xp05:47
Sakkathhmm gparted is recognizing SOMETHING05:48
Sakkathbut still is hating /dev/sdb05:49
Sakkathi guess /dev/mapper/nvidia_cegabeac is my striped partition05:50
Sakkathit shows /dev/sda and /dev/sdb as unallocated05:50
Sakkatherm 298.10GiB. both sda and sdb say 145.05GiB05:50
Sakkathseems righ tto me.05:50
Sakkaththen it shows /dev/mapper/nvidia_cegabeac1 as unallocated, maybe just reserved for something else.05:51
Sakkaththought it shows 298.10 too05:51

Sakkathlooks like i'm making progres.... doubt ntfsresize will work though.05:52
Sakkathoh! the 1 is the actual partition and the cegabeac w/out the 1 is just the 'disk' (logical)05:52
gttSakkath: if it doesnt, gparted works great.05:53
Sakkathgparted shows the cegabeac1 as  'unallocated' and only shows ntfs on 'cegabeac' (w/out 1)05:53
Sakkathi could fdisk this, but i can't ntfsresize if i can't read /dev/sdb!05:54
Sakkathmaybe i just need to resize sda since that contains the partition table?05:54

t_mausand you dont have a solution ?09:06
=== fideas_ is now known as fideas
jester105t_maus: wait, scratch that. i know i have iptables configured.... what you can do is set up your firewall to let only local traffic in.09:06
jester105like, or what not09:06
holaol_dude67: the problem is thet virtual machine does not see but only the host adress, why09:06
jester105for your smtp server09:06
t_mausin the moment the server ist completly free ( without firewall ) that could be an idea so only the ports to open iam needing for the "daily work"09:07
jester105t_maus: wait, you have no firewall at all on it?09:09
jester105baaaaaaaadddddddddd plan!09:09
t_mausnot on my webserver / mailserver09:09
t_mausi have a firewall on the router09:09
t_mausbut i seems to be very open ;)09:09
ol_dude67halo, like i said its been forever since i have set up virtualbox but let me see if i can find you some help.09:09
ol_dude67halo, try asking in #virtualbox09:10
ol_dude67i just checked and there is a channel.09:10
jester105t_maus: yeah, be sure to set up iptables!09:11
t_mausk i will do it now :D09:11
ol_dude67ya that was the first thing i did on my router box was put in a firewall.09:12
jester105ol_dude67: not just on my router, but before i even plugged my server into an ethernet cable, i did it09:13
ol_dude67well i had to have help setting up my router box as i didnt know how to do it, so the guy who helped me showed me how to make a firewall as we were setting it up.09:14
jester105ol_dude67: i downloaded a script for my iptables :)09:14
kadamoh noes!  I just installed Kubuntu on a secondary drive.  When I rebooted it went to Windows, so in the bios I set it to boot to the Linux drive.  When I do that, I see GRUB, but it stops with an error 21.  Does anyone know how to fix this or what it means?09:15
ol_dude67well i had to have ipforwarding for my 2 desktops, and all so i started fresh with mine.09:15
jester105ol_dude67: ipforwarding? like, sharing the same ip?09:16
ol_dude67but i learned alot about firewalls that way.09:16
ol_dude67ya i have 3 boxes and one just is a router.09:16
jester105kadam: i would say..... switch back to the windows one? i dunno09:16
kadamjester105: Do you know how I'd install GRUB on the Windows drive?  It's a hardware RAID0 array...09:18
jester105hmm.... let me seee..... ummmm... get the alternate cd, and boot into it09:18
jester105go to the last step in the menu thingy, and install grub that way09:18
jester105if that made sense09:19
ol_dude67kadam, chances are you should of installed grub to the boot drive anyways.09:19
jester105kadam: actually, to be honest, id just reinstall. it would work better that way, i think09:20
ol_dude67jester105, it made sense to me.:D09:20
jester105ol_dude67: thats probably cause you've done it before! hahaha09:20
ol_dude67ya i have.lmao09:20
kadamol_dude67: I dont' know if it was an option to select another drive.  I actually hoped I could just install to the new drive and make IT the new bootable drive 8)09:20
kadamso, hda0...09:21
jester105kadam: you can, but you have to select that drive to have grub install it to09:21
kadamjester105: Alright.  I'll just reinstall tomorrow morning and install GRUB to the MBR.  I'm jsut scared 8) hehe...  I need Windows for work... blegh...09:22
kadamalright, well, until then, good night!09:22
jester105kadam: if all else fails, theres always your xp cd that you can use and "FIXMBR"09:22
kadamjester105: You mean, if installing GRUB to my main drive causes issues?09:23
ol_dude67kadam, yeah,09:23
jester105kadam: exactly. if you do that, then boot into the recovery thing, you can just fix the mbr. as the command suggests09:23
ol_dude67my tab key sucks, it wont let me do the short cut.09:23
kadamBeautiful, thanks again!09:24
jester105kadam: no problem09:24

TimSWe heard the first time. Chances are, the installer is silleh12:03
Dr_williswhat pidgin installer?12:03
suikiefer: why dont you install pidgin with the package manager?12:04
kieferpackage manager always freezes for some reason12:04
TimSAre you using a deb?12:04
kiefernah, compiling source (so ot install, my bad)12:05
Dr_willisI just totally got confused by the logic of that statement.. about the freezing...12:05
kieferLmao, .deb's always freeze for some reason12:05
Dr_willisI think theres a deeper issue going on here then. :)12:05
kieferLets hope not12:05
Dr_willisIf the apt-get system is freezing up your machine.. You proberly should be focusing on fixing that.12:06
kiefernot the apt-get, that works (moderatly, lol) - Just the gui package manager12:06
Dr_willisit maybe related to your other problem about the libx-dev issues12:06
iboui want kmplayer to be my default player instead of kaffeine. How should i do that ?12:07
antonHow can i get flash to work in Mozilla firefox? Ive installed the plugin but it still doesnt work and i don like gnash =(12:07
flipstaranton: did you restarted firefox ?12:08
ibouanton take the old version12:08
kieferanton: this might sound stupid, but did you re-start firefox?12:08
Dr_willisKonqueror settings -> file assoucations -> set it for the various video files.12:08
TheSandmanhow do i install mp3 support for amarok?12:08
antonyea and it still doesnt work.12:08
antonTheSandman that is automaticly asked for when u add a mp312:08
kieferdid you use the firefox plugin installer?12:08
flipstaris it listed in about:plugins anton ?12:09
TheSandmanwell yes12:09
Dr_willisKonqueror -> settings --> configure Konqueror -->  File Associations.            There we go.12:09
antonok ill check =)12:09
TheSandmanbut it still says that the files aren't supported12:09
kieferSometimes the firefox plugin installer doesnt actually install the plugin, (well in my experience anyway), so you might try downloading it yourself and installing it :)12:10
ibouDr_willis: i guess you answered to me12:10
antonOk im downloading it now =D12:10
kieferLet us know how it goes :)12:10
kieferBrb i need a coffee12:10
ibouDr_willis: thanks.12:13

kieferBack :)12:15
ibounow i want to have kmplayer plugin instead of kaffeine plugin in konqueror. I installed kmplayer-konq-plugins but i always have kaffeine plugin in konqueror. How to change this?12:16

ibouI want to have kmplayer plugin instead of kaffeine plugin in konqueror. I installed kmplayer-konq-plugins but i always have kaffeine plugin in konqueror. How to change this?12:21
Dr_willisenzo,  I only use the various web-mail sites12:22
enzoibou: you have no problem with file association while opening mail attachments in kmail ?12:22
ibouenzo: kmail is the default mlyail client on kde. So file association is already set perfect12:25
enzoand to surf, you use konqueror ibou ?12:25
antonRight im a linux newb so this question is kinda lame. How do i get root acces?12:29
kieferdepends, (im also a linux noob) what are you trying to do if its via konsole, just use 'sudo <command to run as root>'12:30
antonIm trying to move a .so file for a flash plugin and since i fail at terminal im gonna need to be root user i think :P12:30
Dr_willissudo cp whatever wheever12:31
kieferyou can do that via konsole: "sudo cp <file> <destination>"12:31
Dr_willisI cheat  and use a fixed flash deb i found on the !flash factoid :)12:31
antonRight now i tried that and i didnt work =( are the > supposed to be there?12:32
kieferno, dont have the <'s12:32
Dr_willisanton,  NO. those are just shing an example12:32
kiefere.g.: "sudo cp file.deb /etc/network"12:32
antonIt worked12:35
antonthanks a lot guys =D12:35
kieferHehe, Good job :) your welcome12:35
kieferDoes anyone know if an alternate .deb package installer exists?12:35
Dr_williskiefer,  Huh. You mean a replace ment for apt-get and dpkg?12:36
kieferDr_Willis: umm (me=linux nub :] ) like, you know when you open a .deb file12:37
kieferthe dialog that appears12:37
Dr_willisNo idea on what one opens. I dont douibleclick on debs. :)12:37
kieferit always freezes. meaning i cant install using .deb files12:37
Dr_willisI install them with 'sudo dpkg -i whatever.deb'12:37
kieferoh, maybe that will fix my problem, is that the way to doit without using the gui?12:38
Dr_willisThat is how you install a deb package from the shell... yes...12:38
Dr_willisas for fixing your problem.. no idea on that12:38
kieferOh, Cheers, you just helped me more than you think ^_^12:38

Dr_willisive had issues in the past with aptitude.... :)12:45
Jucatoalthough afaik, aptitude's magic doesn't work 100% if you don't use aptitude update first12:45
Dr_willisI had aptitude try to remove and then reinstall 200+ packages at one time befor. :) i dont trust it any more12:46

tecie1980I'm having some problems getting dual screens to work in Kubuntu Edgy using an Nvidia card. I have 2 identical LCD montirors, and I can do cloned dual screens, but when I try and do dual screens  it reverts to this weird thing where screen 2 is 800x600 and screen1 is black, however the mouse can move through both. Also, it can't load menus or anything, including the right click menu on the desktop that's visibile (it tries to, but16:42
tecie1980sort of sits there and flashes) -- anyoone know a workaround?16:42
tekteenI am not an X guy16:43
adz21ctecie1980: u using twinview or xinerama?16:43

adz21ctecie1980: pastebin me your xorg.conf16:44
tecie1980adz21c: right now it's in single screen mode again. Is that OK or do you want the offending xorg.conf file (I can reconfigure, but I need to log out and back in again)16:45
adz21ctecie1980: get it so u got a good single monitor set up16:46

tecie1980adz21c: I now have dual screens, but the resolution is off and I can't load the KDE desktop driver. Should I try to fix them manually in xorg?17:04
adz21ctecie1980: I would, the guis never seem to quite get it right for me17:05
Sbucat...xD well hardy rocks all multimedia keys works , gutsy no ..,, in fesity multimedia keys works too ..why ?17:09

jbrcksBluesKaj: I am going through my Kmenu opening the programs, will they correct themselves when I restart xserver because are not changing for me.17:15
tecie1980adz21c: The solution was to remove all of the lower resolutions that I didn't want.... Now all I have to do is figure out how to change which side kubuntu things monitor 2 is on17:16
adz21ctecie1980: if u look at the config file its the twinview orientation options17:17

kkathmanIm using firefox + AdBlock, and I'm trying to view ESPN.com, the far right panel which has video feeds that come in automatically - this works fine in SUSE, but for some reason it wont in kubuntu.. anyone here have a suggestion?17:33
__-osh-__Sbucat: I'd love commander more if I could "reference" code from the commander script instead of pasting it into it. Kommander is great, but it could be better.17:34
Sbucat__-osh-__: well i know maybe the most of it ...what's the problem ?17:35
Sbucatmaybe one day i will do some video tutorial17:35
Sbucatsorry i have so few time...17:36
DreadKnightSbucat: i think he means you should make a base app supporting plugins/scripts instead of hardcoding everything.... so it will be more modular ;)17:36
__-osh-__Sbucat: From what I gather, when I write a kommander script I have to paste my python code into that script, I can't say that "when you come to this point in the code, run this python-script with these parameters". Not that I know of anyway.17:37
SbucatDreadKnight: well i plan to delete dvdauthor and images2mpg because i see there so much gui for that so..i think one day you will see only converter :D17:37
kieferIs there a way to change the color of the task-bar? (Sorry for the M$ Windows term hehe)17:38

DreadKnightSbucat: i could help you with the repository thing if you want17:42
Sbucat__-osh-__: you could paste your problem in paste bin17:42
DreadKnightkiefer: yeah, kde 3 by default (not that you could customize the color in kde4 anyway :)))17:42

Greenerymaybe the video is corrupted17:57
kieferWhat version does Kubuntu7.10 come with again? my memory fails me =p17:57
DreadKnightkiefer: you can make different versions of /usr/share/apps/kicker/wallpapers/kubuntu-panel.png and you tell you how to load them. it's the tile used by the menu by default :) change it's values etc in an image editor like gimp for example :P17:57

DreadKnightkiefer: 3.5.8 probably :)17:57

kieferUmm, Not really sure17:59
kieferI like to go beyond customization lol17:59
lokpestmefisto__: I think so, but it besides the point, it does not play thing corectly today that it did yesterday17:59
mefisto__so the avi played yesterday, but not today?18:00
DreadKnightkiefer: well, kde4 is pretty much a rewrite ;) but it has just been released... and it needs more time to be complete/more polished18:00

lokpestmefisto__: avi, and a lot of other formats like .mov only get sound and no visual18:01
kieferOn a side note - is there a way to disable vertical scrolling with the mouse?18:01
DreadKnightkiefer: you would probably need to manually edit the x.org config file for that i think xD18:02
mefisto__lokpest: try changing xine engine parameters in kaffeine. in the video section, change driver to "auto"18:02
kieferDreadKnight: Just what I wanna be doing at almost 5am ^_^18:03
lokpestmefisto__: ok, doing a reinstall of kaffeine and xine now, btw18:03
kieferDreadKnight: where can I find said file?18:03
DreadKnightkiefer: xD well never heard of anyone willing to do such a thing, but it's possible as far as i know :>18:04
Daisuke_Idoprobably not a good idea to go poking around in your xorg.conf without knowing what things do18:04
kieferDreadKnight: 2 years studying for a degree in IT (Programming and software dev.) is about to pay off :)18:05
Daisuke_Idothe obvious question that pops up is: what has changed on your system since it was able to play video?18:05
DreadKnightkiefer: you need to get administrative rights over it and you can mess up things, i don't recommend doing such things as a linux newb :)18:05

Daisuke_Idobut alas, most of the time that isn't the case18:06
kieferDaisuke_Ido: Hehe, Too true18:06
mefisto__kiefer: if you edit xorg.conf, it's not a bad idea to make a backup of your current one first, so you can easily undo changes18:07
DreadKnightsomebody tell kiefer where to find the xorg.conf file :) i'm whashing my hands xD18:07
p-fis there a way to change the steps by which my volume keys increment/decrement the volume? 12% per keypress is a bit too much.18:07

sonic_anyone having issues switching from users that use kde 4 and users that use kde 3.5.x? Specifically in sound programs will freeze in kde 3.5.8 if a user is on kde 4 then logs out and another logs in with 3.5.8.  amarok, xmms, etc, all freeze.18:07

lokpestmefisto__: already says auto18:08
mefisto__lokpest: try changing it to xv, that's the default I think18:09

Daisuke_Idobecause apparently it hasn't gotten the memo18:31
sigma_1234what kde search apps are available besides strigi?18:32
unagii run it on virtual box18:32
Daisuke_Idothat's probably the best bet, especially if you have hardware virtualization18:32
unagithe best part of vbox is you can scale the memory and video memory18:32
Daisuke_Ido...i don't.  not on here at least18:32
sigma_1234also does strigi reek havoc on hdd usage and percentage cpu used?18:32
mefisto__sigma_1234: I like searchmonkey, but it's gtk not kde18:33
sigma_1234yeah you told me about it yesterday. is strigi really as bad as they say it is?18:34
sigma_1234and can someone tell me why kubuntu cant connect to wep networks when ubuntu can on the exact same configs?18:35
mefisto__I don't know, but I couldn't get strigi to work properly so I gave up.18:36
kieferstringi never ever returns any results for me, no matter what i search18:36
sigma_1234did you let it index files?18:37
kieferUhhhh... *Runs away*... So, No - Lol, Me=Linux newb :)18:37
mefisto__the indexing always hangs for me18:37
sigma_1234lol its all a learning curve18:38
kieferI think when i use the "me=linux newb' excuse in a year from now, it wont work so well *shifty eyes*18:38
sigma_1234my advice. learn from the command line up18:39
kieferExactly what im doing ^_^18:39
kieferIm doing all I can via Konsole, straying away from the sugar-coated gui18:39
mefisto__sigma_1234: maybe look into google desktop for searching?18:39

SlimeyPeteyou can't, without removing all of the kubuntu desktop, ctex.20:42
NickPrestactex, KDE 4.0 is still considered unstable by some. I would suggest that you keep KDE 3 in case KDE 4.0 breaks on you or doesn't do what you want20:42
SlimeyPetectex: you could install ubuntu-desktop instead and then install kde420:42

ctexThat's what I am doing. Uninstalling kubuntu-desktop would be a pain, I haven't just installed the core packages unfortunately :(20:43

NickPrestasayers, aww. But seriously, no WYSIWYG editor writes semantic AND standards compliant HTML/CSS. If you're going to use that and then modify the output to be semantic and such, you might as well write it by hand.20:45
