KKSlider1337oh ok00:00
usr13_mohbana: It is not hard to install.00:00
mrthaggarI'll go and see if I can figure it out :) Thanks for the advice!00:00
linchapulinmrthaggar:: If you want to do it that way...just download and install vmware and it should work much better with Ubuntu00:01
Sakkathgmcastil: the cd is fine, i just donno how to get it to display on my monitor00:01
Andehhi. I need help on configuring XORG to use my retarded monitor at its full resolution.00:01
usr13_mrthaggar: You more than likely already have totem00:01
gmcastilKKSlider1337: http://freenode.net/faq.shtml00:01
mohbanaAndeh, what gfx card?00:01
gmcastilSakkath: umm...can you explain your problem again?00:02
usr13_Andeh: What resolution?00:02
usr13_Andeh: 800x600  ?00:02
Andehmohbana: Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT, resolution 1680x1050@6000:02
bad_cablesSyntaxerror55: when i look, it sais... /interface/whatever.o not found, so i shell to /interface and i see only whatever.h... is that what i should change?00:02
syntaxerror55bad_cables: No. whatever.h is the source, whatever.o is the binary00:02
Sakkathgmcastil: the cd is fine, the boot menu is 1280x1024, so with default 'vga' or setting to 1280x1024x32, it doesn't show up, monitor just says no signal. i normally use 1440x900 on geforce 8800gts 512MB00:03
mohbanaAndeh, whats your current resolution? have u installed the drivers?00:03
Andehdrivers? "nvidia" driver?00:03
Andehi have the glx thing00:03
usr13_Andeh: cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak ; nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf00:03
AndehI already had this conversation. I looked at XORGS startup logs and it said something about the monitor not supporting the res, even though i was using it in windows ten minutes ago.00:04
Parsec300How can I update the restricted nVidia drivers when they come out?00:04
Andehusr13: i'm in GNOME now, but okay :P00:04
danbhfiveParsec300: wont they upgrade with the rest of your software?00:04
gpivansome know the name of the server in spanish?00:04
gmcastilSakkath: i think the boot image has to be 640x48000:04
Andehusr13: okay00:05
Sakkathgmcastil: i checked my monitor by pressin menu button and it said 1280x102400:05
themunkeecan anyone help me with drivers for ATI Technologies Inc Rage 128 Pro Ultra TF?00:05
mohbanaAndeh, are you using the nvidia drivers?00:05
gmcastilSakkath: you're trying to get grub to display graphics, right?00:05
Parsec300Haven't seen it happen yet danbhfive. Should it?00:05
Sakkathgmcastil: grub is there fine, but the os won't boot00:05
themunkeei was told that when running glxgears, it's supposed to be smooth00:05
Sakkathit won't show00:05
Andehmohbana: yeah, i ran reconfigure xorg and told it to use NOT nv, but nvidia.00:05
danbhfiveParsec300: yeah, usually00:05
gmcastilSakkath: is that a yes?00:05
Sakkathgmcastil: no00:05
danbhfiveParsec300: is this a new install?00:06
gmcastilSakkath: so...what are you trying to do? i don't really know00:06
mohbanaAndeh, tell me if you see nvdia x server settings under apps -> sys tools00:06
Sakkathgmcastil: i'm trying to install it, i'm talking about the cd, when i pres 'Start or Install Kubuntu' or do the safe gfx mode, it does something and then monitor says 'No Signal'00:06
Andehmohbana: strange. they used to be there00:06
gmcastilSakkath: ah...ok.  when you boot, you might try editing the boot parameters00:06
Parsec300danbhfive, well, not exactly new. I've been running it for over a month now, but there was a recent update of the drivers.00:07
gmcastilSakkath: i think you have to press F6 - that will let you edit the boot options that are passed to the kernel - try removing the words 'quiet' and 'splash'00:07
gpivanthanks for the answer :-@00:07
danbhfiveParsec300: how do you know there was an update?00:07
Andehmohbana: what is the command to run that? i don't see it in the menu00:07
mohbanaAndeh, is this a fresh install00:07
Ian00whats a good prog to view images?00:07

soldatsIan00, GQView00:08
Ian00thx soldats00:08
Parsec300I regularly check a website which lists new versions of a lot of software and drivers and there was a new version of the nVidia Linux Dislplay Drivers.00:08
Fallenouhi !00:08
Parsec300danbhfive, how do I check the version anyway?00:08
soldatsIan00, gimp and inkscape can edit them GQView is just a viewer00:08
Andehmohbana: yes.00:08
Fallenoui'm some trouble, i just installed hardy heron beta 3 (by doing gksudo "update-manager -d") and i cannot launch apt-get anymore00:08

Fallenouapt-get: /usr/local/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (required by apt-get)00:09
danbhfiveParsec300: try synaptic, I dont know the cli commands for that00:09
Fallenoui had similar problem before upgrading , with konqueror or OpenOffice for exemple, but not with apt-get00:09
mohbanaAndeh, i am assuming you havn't installed the nidia drivers before? are yo running 800x600 right? are you on 64bi?00:09
Fallenouit seems that after the update it's getting worse :p00:09
Fallenoudo you know how to repare that ?00:09

morphaticI used repository to install VMWare server, but I don't seem to be able to access the MUI...  does anyone know how I can tell if it is installed?00:19
hubSonja: I'd try this in the terminal: "pmount /dev/sda1"00:19
Sonjait's so much easier in winxp, but i'd rather keep trying in ubuntu00:19
Andehmohbana: and that i should run nvidia-xconfig as root and restart X, which I just did, and now it still says that!00:19
Sonjahub ok let me try00:19
syntaxerror55hub: Ah, okay. Because gphoto outputted something, I thought to blaim gphoto.00:19

ubotuhigh-freq: Ubuntu, like any other linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'iptables' command (see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo), or GUI applications such as Firestarter (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE).00:22

nemilarRoxanneEDM: is it already mounted?00:55

bulmerMania I know its a directory of modules..so go see if any are broadcom related00:56
nemilarRoxanneEDM: yeah... you have to unmount it if you want to reformat it, though00:56
histoSakkath_: do you have grub vga codes in your menu.1st?00:56
RoxanneEDMgnine, wow thanks00:56
nemilarRoxanneEDM: you can right-click on the partition and select unmount, and then you should be able to select format00:56

Sakkath_well.. techincally a different one, i'm sshing.00:57
RoxanneEDMsweet, i think its working00:57
nemilarRoxanneEDM: you know Fat32 has a lot of limitations on it, though, I hope00:58
ScuniziSakkath, ok.. after running that command and answering the questions you'll need to restart X by CTRL+ALT+Backspace. It will knock you off this channel and make you log back in..00:58
DG19075a question for you all: has anyone noted problems with ubuntu-art and gnome-look? Neither site is responding here...00:58
ubotuext3 is the default filesystem on Ubuntu, and the most popular on Linux. You can read/write from Windows to ext3 via http://www.fs-driver.org00:58
bulmerMania-> you have to kind of figure out which of those is for broadcom, maybe 43xx is a clue?00:58
RoxanneEDMyeah, i just need it for my FTA reciever00:58
Sakkath_Scunizi: i'm in console . . . so i will be here00:58
Sakkath_because x didn't start right, that's the problem.00:58
ScuniziSakkath, I forgot about that.. console won't disconnect.00:59
Sakkath_Scunizi: :P00:59
Sakkath_Scunizi: does the same thing ):00:59
Sakkath_Scunizi: Xorg.0.log has helped a lil' bit00:59
bulmerRoxanneEDM-> just for my curiosity, how is that FTA working for you? you get I8 channels? which pci card works for you?00:59
Maniabulmer : is more than 100 file and directoy in this, wich you mean?00:59
Sakkath_Scunizi: is there anything i can get like 'nopaste' in gentoo portage? i will paste these for you00:59
ScuniziSakkath, I think it's an issue with the 8800.. I'm googling now to find the answer.01:00
bulmerMania you have to do some leg work, go see each one if you have to...check them each01:00
Sakkath_Scunizi: that would be very gay. make sure you say 512MB or g92, cause it's the newer core.01:00
Maniabulmer: sorry but check for What!?01:00
bulmerMania-> you proly can narrow it down to something that has 43xx on it01:01
bulmerMania->  for a firmware,  see if any of the broadcom is on that directory01:01
ScuniziSakkath, that make it almost for sure..  hang on on phone01:01
Sakkath_Scunizi: ok, grabbed nopaste off a gentoo box. let me paste my log for you, maybe i can install gpm (:01:01
bulmerMania-> if none, then you dont have the firmware to make that chip work then01:02

But my problem is as follows, if a 3d app is running and something appears above it (i.e. pidgin guification, rhythmbox notifactions) my entire system either slows to a crawl or hangs completely, both requiring a hard reboot to fix (sometimes not even a sysrq can reboot it when thi01:18

nemilarmarion__: if you're using scp you will have to copy the file over, edit it, and then copy it back, however.  SSHFS takes care of all this for you.01:29

Jewfro-Macabbigmcastil, I'm aware but is that a strict limitation? I though it was *possible* to use it for FS's between lin machines also?01:30

daniel_bergaminiLeechzilla: you might try rebooting into windows and running a checkdisk. I had an unclean NTFS volume that wouldn't mount (resize the partition actually) under Linux until I cleaned it in Windows01:46
mopfliteI also find apt-cache search useful for finding available packages01:46
PeloReconstitueKlean, lcd screen ?01:46
daniel_bergaminiLeechzilla: I do not believe there is a fsck.ntfs in Ubuntu01:47
snorkeliKap: nothing wrong in that log01:47
Pelotaz,  jsut state your problem if someone can help they will try01:47
drrohinwhere can i find more info on the sudo command01:47
snorkeliKap: try the gdm.log01:47
Gnine!ntfs | Leechzilla01:47
ubotuLeechzilla: To view your Windows/Mac partitions see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AutomaticallyMountPartitions - For write access, see /msg ubotu NTFS-3g or /msg ubotu FUSE01:47
dennyman sudo01:47
lufisdrrohin: google, thru the manpages, etc.01:47
tazhi pelo  im try to find where to get cube ?01:47
dman!sudo | drrohin01:48
ubotudrrohin: sudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information.01:48
lufisdrrohin: or type sudo --help01:48
Pelodrrohin,  sudo is jsut a prefix to a command to let the comp know you are running the command with admin priviledge01:48
Pelotaz,  you need to enable desktop effects ( compiz) ,  ask in #compiz for more info01:48
dennyit's a bit more versatile than that, that's just how ubuntu users tend to see it01:48
cwilluLeechzilla, ntfsprogs has a utility, but I don't think they consider it stable01:48
LeechzillaGnine: I know.01:48
iKapsnorkel, in /var/log/gdm there are like 4 diff files.01:48
Leechzillacwillu: Risky to use it then?01:48
gmcastilPelo: hehe...here's how you do it: apt-cache search "" | grep ...01:48
BigstoneHi, newbie on Xubuntu here.. How do I get Xubuntu to find my 3c5098-c (ISA) Networkcard? Tried lspci but it's not listed. W'ont find the soundcard either. (Also ISA!). Anyone?01:49
Pelodenny, we are dealing with a beginner here,  that explainaiton was enough01:49
snorkeliKap: which one is the latest one?01:49
drrohinsuper user something right01:49
Pelogmcastil, congrats01:49
cwilluLeechzilla, somewhat;  I doubt it'll cause problems, but you won't get much sympathy if it does01:49
Pelodrrohin, super user do or smeting01:49
dennyswitch user01:49
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about automount - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi01:49
iKapsnorkel, they all have the same time.01:49
cwilluevil_tech, look up hal01:49
dennyyou can use it to impersonate other users as well as root01:49
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about hal - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi01:50
dennyit's just not something you'd want to do very often  :)01:50
Pelo!fstab | evil_tech01:50
ubotuevil_tech: The /etc/fstab file indicates how drive partitions are to be used or otherwise integrated into the file system. See http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html and !Partitions01:50
LeechzillaOkay, I'll try fixing it in Windows when I reboot next time01:50
jason_hey pelo the screensavers when i run the ther still jerky some of them run slow what do you recomend i do?01:50
tazdone then next what ??01:50
cwilluPelo, that's not the automounter though :p01:50
snorkeliKap: i'm not sure which one but one of them should have some error message related to your X crashing01:50
Pelojason_, I don't use screensavers myself,  I jsut set it to turn off the monitor01:50
Pelocwillu, automount can mean so many things to so many ppl01:51
jason_yeah well how can i tell if my graphics are working properly01:51
gmcastiljason_: glxgears01:51
Pelojason_, , is your video card integrated ?01:51
jason_i think so01:51
jason_its a chipset01:51
iKapsnorkel, Fatal server error:01:51
iKapCaught signal 11.  Server aborting01:51
Pelojason_,  check in your bios setting to see how much memory you have allocated to the video card and then change that in xorg.conf01:51
jason_ok ill try that01:52
dmanjason_: probably just not a very good graphics card. some of the scrensavers are very demanding.01:52
Pelojason_, that mgiht help a bit with speed01:52

BigstoneIs ISA a problem for Xubuntu?01:52
gmcastilok....the Xfce terminal sucks hardcore01:52
gmcastilBigstone: no01:52
Pelojason_, what graphic card /chipset is it ?01:52
daniel_bergaminiis 2800fps+ good in glxgears?01:52
gmcastilBigstone: but, you may not have support for it if it's really strange01:52
cellofellowPelo: last time I checked the video ram thing in xorg.conf is ignored by most drivers, nvidia in particular. They just auto-detect it.01:52
jason_umm ..01:53
bluefox83i have a network machine that's basically a headless server, it's running ubuntu 7.04 on it, earlier today the power went out and it turned it off, now i'm having trouble initiating an ssh session or getting the nfs shares to mount properly, can anyone tell me what i can do to fix it?01:53
jason_i think but not sure i saw nividia on windows01:53
Bigstonethe same with my soundcard to then... ISA as well..01:53
snorkeliKap: i'm not sure about that error perhaps something to do with accessing memory incorrectly check with others here or online01:53
Pelojason_, my intel 856g chipset can do most screensavers with relatively good speed, it's not so hot in compiz stuff however,  some ofthe effects get a bit choppy and I can'T enable all of them , just so you know01:53
jason_i still have windows xp installed im trying t replace that with linux soo..01:53
iKapsnorkel, okay thanks.01:54
gmcastiljason_: replace meaning actually replace?01:54
ere4sibulmer: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/54404/ - pstree and mount commands - /dev/shm is a file server that hasn't been on today01:54
cellofellowPelo: I wouldn't try rss-glx's Hyperspace on an 856g.01:54
dmanjason_: soooo..?01:54
bluefox83how can i connect to my headless server to see whats going on during bootup?01:54
jason_cool me?01:54
daniel_bergaminianyone have the solution to the hang on hibernate problem under 7.10?01:55
dmanbluefox83: put a head on it? i don't think you can during bootup.01:55
snorkeliKap: i'm thinking its a memory issue01:55
gmcastiljason_: run the installer, delete your windows partition, repartition it according to your preference01:55
jason_oh i will just gota make sure i dont need it01:55
dmandaniel_bergamini: disable hibernation? =P that's what i ended up doing...01:55
gmcastiljason_: windows?  no, you don't need windows to install linux, but you'll lose everything on it01:55
jason_i know that lol01:55
gmcastiljason_: so, back up everything you want to take with you01:55
daniel_bergaminidman unacceptable ;)01:55
gmcastiljason_: well, then get to work :)01:56
daniel_bergaminidman suspent2ram works fine... it's something01:56
jason_i just used to use windows before01:56
lnsIs OPENBSD-INETD installed on gutsy by default?01:56
Gninethere is no standard solution for hibernation issues01:56
gmcastiljason_: run the installer and when you partition the drive, make sure you put /home on a differnet partition - you'll need 3 at the least01:56
dmandaniel_bergamini: i see. i couldn't get suspend to work either though. i think it's jus tmy laptop. good luck!01:56
Starnestommylns: I don't think any inetd is installed by default01:56
jason_i alredy installed linux so all i gota do is get rid of windows part01:56
stefkohello people can somebody help me about Apache/2.2.4 http server?01:56
RequinB5what do i put as the directory in 'find' to use the current directory01:57
lnsStarnestommy, thank you, i thought it was01:57
daniel_bergaminidman: well I guess I'm better off than some01:57
gmcastiljason_: yeah...but, you might want to absorb that partition into something else01:57
MHz128I'm having trouble installing U7.1. I've got 1 SATA and 1 IDE drives. When I try to manually partition the IDE drive, I get an error message telling me it can't do it. Any ideas???01:57
* lns edits his ubuntu forums post01:57
gmcastilstefko: you might try an apache channel01:57
jason_i will do as soon as ubuntu is runing proplery01:57
stefkoi make the server from my box01:57
Pelostefko, that is too broad a quesiton,  you need to be more specific01:57
gmcastilstefko: unless its ubuntu related, you'd probably have better luck01:57
xthegoat121xUbuntu detects my single-core processor as a dual-core, and I have no idea why.01:57

dmandaniel_bergamini: exactly ; ]01:58
RequinB5 what do i put as the directory in 'find' to use the current directory01:58
BigstoneBigstone has left the building...01:58
Starnestommyxthegoat121x: it might eb because it's a hyperthreading processor, but I've never used one01:58
gmcastilRequinB5: find defaults to .01:58
dmanstefko: try #apache for people who know what they're doing...01:58
MHz128gmcastil: im using the gui install. it doesn't give specific error information01:58
RequinB5gmcastil - sorry, . is ?01:59

gmcastilMHz128: so, what exactly won't the installer let you do?02:00
xthegoat121xStarnestommy, Lovely.02:00
jason_i hope this works hopefully it will and if it does that will be wonderfull02:00
MHz128gmcastil: install u7 to the IDE drive with a custom partition02:00
Pelojason_,  intel graphic card should hve been recognised from the get go , you should not hve had to tweak it02:01
dmanPelo: what is a good fps for glxgears, anyway? i got ~600002:01
iKapsnorkel, do you think ill be fine in the future, or will this be a reoccurring error? because i had alot of tasks running at once, pidgin, xchat, firefox(5-6 tabs open including youtube) and couple other small things.02:01
mirakis there a away to relaod the partition table as it is in /proc/partitions ?02:01
tom2002i can't seem to log in as root02:01
RequinB5gmcastil - sorry, . is ?02:01
Pelodman, no idea, I'm not the one who recommended glxgears, I think it was cellofelow02:01
tom2002is there sum sort of default root password?02:01
gmcastilRequinB5: current directory, sorry02:01
dmantom2002: did you enable root account?02:01
tom2002i'm not sure02:01
RequinB5thx :P02:01
Pelotom2002, there is not root in ubuntu02:01
Starnestommytom2002: there is no root password02:01
tom2002how do i do that02:02

RequinB5!root | tom200202:02
ubotutom2002: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo02:02
gmcastiltom2002: if you want to log in as root, just type: sudo -i02:02
Pelotom2002,  run your command with sudo02:02
Gnine!user | tom02:02
nemilartom2002: you can set the root password by "sudo passwd root"02:02

Skwid1hey guys, i set up ubuntu yesterday on a somewhat old computer with a CRT screen, everything worked fine. Today, i try to plug in an LCD screen, and I get the error 'Video mode not supported' on the screen when X starts. What should i do ?02:02
gmcastiltom2002: the root passwd is randomized upon installation - ubuntu enforces the sudo thang02:02
nemilargmcastil: no it's not02:02
nemilargmcastil: it's not randomized, it's disabled02:02
ubotuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo02:02
LiraNunaanyone knows how can I know the name of the makefile used (given to 'make' with -f switch) inside a makefile?02:02
jason_so no need to run glxgears02:03
* Myiasia must now reboot! Oh great Windows demands it of her. *rolls her eyes*02:03
dmantom2002: getting around it is possible, but HIGHLY not recomended.02:03
Skwid1anyone ?02:03
PeloSkwid1, it's probabaly a refresh issue or someting like that,  you'll probably need to tweak the device monitor settings in xorg.conf02:03
gmcastilnemilar: i'll take your word for it, but /etc/passwd seems to indicate that root does indeed have a passwd02:03
BodOmLaWwill i decide not to go with dmraid02:03
PeloSkwid1, anyone what ?02:03
BodOmLaWto much work02:03
nemilargmcastil: there are no passwords in /etc/passwd ;)02:03
Skwid1Pelo: what should i set the refresh to ?02:03
nemilargmcastil: passwords are kept in /etc/shadow02:04
Skwid1Pelo: it's a 15'' samsung lcd02:04

PeloSkwid1, the horz synk and vert ref or what ever of your monitor, check the label on the back02:04
Skwid1ok thanks !02:04
noahthere is a great thread for flash on the forums02:04
nemilargmcastil: you can disable a password in the shadow file by giving it a char that isn't allowed in the hashes, "*" for instance02:04
xthegoat121xAny other ideas out there regarding a single core being detected as a dual core?02:04
LiraNunaxthegoat121x, hyper threading02:05
noahif you are having problems with 64bit flash, install the older version02:05
snorkeliKap: it may be memory related too try checking memory for errors02:05
nemilarxthegoat121x: you sure it's not just hyperthreading?02:05
gmcastilnemilar: ...i see, is that what the ! is all about?02:05
LiraNunahyper threading is great02:05
Pelog'night folks02:05
nemilargmcastil: exactly02:05
dmanxthegoat121x:  sorry. my core2 is definitely identified as 2 core....02:05
gmcastilnemilar: thanks for explaining that, then - i was mistaken02:05
RequinB5why is it that 'find term' only looks at file names and 'find . term' searches the files?  What is the syntax to alias the second with the first?02:05
iKapsnorkel, i found this, seems like a firefox/browser related error: atal server error:02:05
iKapCaught signal 11.  Server aborting02:05
gmcastilnemilar: that being said, enabling a root password isn't really all that hard02:05
iKapsnorkel, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=96068&page=2 sorry.02:05
gmcastilnemilar: i don't see why its not recommended either02:05
nemilargmcastil: yeah, it's just sudo asswd root02:05
corianderI need help with syntax for a chmod command... For a given directory, I want all subdirs to be 755 and all regular files to be 744.  Any suggestions?02:05
gmcastilnemilar: yeah :)02:05
nemilargmcastil: because the thought is people will then login as root02:05
gmcastilnemilar: well, yeah - su -02:06
xthegoat121xLiraNuna, nemilar, I know it is a HT processor, the only thing is, the CPU usage never spikes above 50%... and there's a folder at /proc/CPU2.... would that still be there with hyperthreading?02:06
phoenixzcoriander, you could use find to look for directories and use chmod on the results02:06
nemilargmcastil: I mean from the GDM login screen02:06
gmcastilnemilar: yeah, i know what you menat - but, people should be smart enough to not do that02:06
nemilarxthegoat121x: cat /proc/cpuinfo02:06
nemilarwill show you your CPU's info02:06
snorkeliKap: maybe a firefox add-on is causing it too02:07
LiraNunaxthegoat121x, I have a hyper threading processor, and it's being detected as dual CPU, that's all I know - and it works :D02:07
nemilarif you have a modern single-core, there should be two processor entries02:07
phoenixzcoriander,  find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} I believe02:07
gmcastilnemilar: i understand the paranoia thats extended for ubuntu users - there are a lot of ways to shoot your foot off and a lot people using ubuntu are really really green, if the irc channel is any indication02:07
nemilaryeah that's exactly it, gmcastil02:07
phoenixzcorbbuli, Not entirely sure about the syntax, CHECK THE RESULTS before you try that please! :P02:07
gmcastilnemilar: super green02:07
mirakis there a way to reload devices02:07
dmanLiraNuna: xthegoat121x : i'm pretty sure hyper threading just shows to the os as two processors.02:07

gmcastilMHz128: need more informtation about your setup - i have no idea what your partition table looks for it02:08
RequinB5Ok, i rephrase my question.  'find . term' gives me every file regardless of term and 'find term' gives me nothing02:08
mirakgmcastil: I want to reload devices for one drive, that's all02:08
gmcastilmirak: what do youmean by reloading devices again? are you referring to kernel modules?02:08
jason_ok its up 128 vram but i fogot that sudo comand agen pelo02:09
dmanxthegoat121x: that is correct. it is detecting the ht02:09
xthegoat121xand in XP, it's detected as a single core.02:09
nemilarxthegoat121x: if it's showing two processors, that's hyperthreading02:09
gmcastilnemilar: not necessarily02:09
LiraNunaXP is lame ;D hyperthreading is dual core basically02:09
nemilarif it was a duelcore it would show 402:09
mirakgmcastil: no the devices accorging to parition map, so /dev/hdaX etcetera02:09
phoenixzcoriander, mmmm, check google on find syntaxis for find and execute on results02:09

MHz128gmcastil: its a totally blank IDE drive......02:09
gmcastilnemilar: my core2 shows as 2 procs and it doesn't use HT02:09
LiraNuna"In order to use the Hyper-threading capability of a Hyper-threading capable CPU, the operating system must be able to support Hyper-threading. Mere multiprocessor support is not enough to properly make use of Hyper-threading on a Hyper-threading capable system. "02:09

Codenutsqiud and dansguardian will not install on my system properly, tells me to manually edit dansguardian.conf02:10
phoenixzcoriander, in any case, you FIRST want to do find . -type d and see if the result is what you want.. if its wrong you don't want to have executed that command already :)02:10

gmcastilxthegoat121x: well, you aren't running a bloated OS anymore02:12

gmcastilmirak: umount /dev/<partition>02:13
zikkeri've just upgraded to gutsy, and drive mapping seems to be messing up. I get errors like "mount: /dev/sdb1 already mounted or /boot busy" when trying to mount any of my drives, but using /dev/mapper/sdb1 for the device seems to work. My fstab is by UUID, so it seems to be grabbing the wrong device...02:13
gmcastilmirak: mount /dev/<partition>02:13
MHz128gmcastil: "can not create partition to IDE"02:13
dmanjason_: it goes quick. i only started using full time 3 months ago.02:13
chris062689Is there a way to upgrade to Hardy from Gutsy?02:13
chris062689How can I upgrade to the new alpha3?02:13
chris062689Without burning a new CD-R.02:13
gmcastilMHz128: i would try using fdisk to see what the partition table actually looks like - pastebin a copy of your partition tables02:14

gmcastilmirak: what partition are you trying to umount anyway? is it / ?02:14
MHz128gmcastil: should i just reformat the drive and try again?02:14
LiraNunaxthegoat121x, "Hyper-Threading works by duplicating certain sections of the processor—those that store the architectural state—but not duplicating the main execution resources. This allows a Hyper-Threading equipped processor to pretend to be two "logical" processors to the host operating system, allowing the operating system to schedule two threads or processes simultaneously"02:14
dmanchris062689: i don't recommend you upgrade a main system to hardy... still alpha02:14
BodOmLaWmy internet is sluggish when going to new sites on ubuntu, why is that?02:14
BodOmLaWmy ping is 5002:15

BodOmLaWand my speed is 428kB just like normal02:15
dmanLiraNuna: fake dual-core! i have a real one too =P02:15
LiraNunadman, I got quad core, your point is? :)02:15
dmantaz: wobbly windows?02:15
gmcastilMHz128: yeah, that's what i'd do...but, if it's empty, its not formatted yet02:15
xthegoat121xLiraNuna, Wow.  I never realized that about my PIV02:15
chris062689I know it's still alpha.  And I'll deal with any problems I have.. :)02:15
dmanLiraNuna: awesome. just saying how hyperthreading is pretty pointless...02:16
LiraNunaxthegoat121x, cause linux is superior to it02:16
zikkerok. I think I got it working by regenerating my initramfs02:16
dmantaz: try #compiz02:16
chris062689How would i upgrade to the alphas though? I tried dist-upgrade >_>02:16
mirakgmcastil: I am not trying to mount anything02:16
chris062689Didn't work.02:16
MHz128gmcastil: what filesystem should I format it to?02:16

PriceChildchris062689, read the whole factoid and stop sighing.02:16
dmanLiraNuna: true, the reason i have ht on my old computer.02:16
gmcastilmirak: if you're trying to remount it, you'll need to unmount it, and then mount it again - whats the filesystem on the device?02:16

LiraNunaxthegoat121x, suggestion: stick with ubuntu02:18
jscinozhey guys, i've got a centrino duo cpu, /proc/cpuinfo shows that both cores support hyperthreading, i've added ht=on to the kernel's commandline in /boot/grub/menu.lst but i still only have the two physical cores rather than 4 logical cores, any ideas?02:19
dmantaz: are you using gutsy?02:19
dmanThatGu1: hey02:19
mirakgmcastil: rebooting would help, but I would rather not reboot and force a device detection or something02:19
gmcastilPriceChild: sometimes, the answer is to read the manual...02:19
PriceChildgmcastil, that's not an acceptable answer here.02:19
ThatGu1does anyone know how to network a winblows computer and ubuntu i.e. to share folders?02:19
stefkohello how i can create a folder on the desktop when i'm on terminal ?02:19
gmcastilmirak: then, unmount and remount the partition02:19
PriceChildgmcastil, either be helpful or don't say a thing.02:19
dmantaz: odd. no luck in #compiz? they are much more knowledgeable.02:19
tazyes it odd02:19
K_NineI downloaded a HTML file for the book Grokking the Gimp. In a forum I found that you are supposed to burn it to a CD to read it. Is there a way to read it from the file?02:19

gmcastilmirak: you aren't making any sense - you need to describe your problem better02:20

tazmaybe videocard need new one02:21
ThatGu1PriceChild: thanks, I have it all networked and stuff, but when i try to access it from my winblows computer, it asks me for the username and password. of course i know them both, but i guess something is wrong since the login box keeps coming up when i try to login :S02:21
gmcastilxthegoat121x: yeah, smp means symmetric multi procesing02:21
wease|dman, how is it goin?02:21
dmantaz: quite possible. what is it?02:21
gmcastilxthegoat121x: on my P4, i used an SMP kernel02:21

PriceChildThatGu1, samba users are different to the system's users02:21
tazmy videocard geforce 64 mb02:21
gmcastilxthegoat121x: the installer should notice that and install that02:21
jason_man i can;'t figure that command02:21
PriceChildThatGu1, you can either set security = share, in the smb.conf, or you can set up samba users using smbpasswd (or a similar command)02:21
xthegoat121xgmcastil, I'm going to check that out right now.02:21
tazdman which best videocard for my pc ??02:21

tazdman  ok what website so i will look at nvidai feforce to match for this ubuntu02:23
WorkingOnWisehow can I change the disk label of a usb flash drive?02:24

WorkingOnWisecompwiz18: IT'S FAT3202:25
dmanK_Nine: can't you just open the file with your web browser?02:25

vbabiydoes any one have the link to ubuntu form for the fixed flash package02:25
tazok im wondering should be work with 128 mb with videocard ??02:25
K_NineIt is full of files.02:25
Jewfro-MacabbiK_Nine, you would only need to burn a cd of an iso image - well even then you could loop mount it instead02:25

compwiz18theshadow: sudo umount /dev/<sddrive>; sudo fsck /dev/<sddrive> to unmount and check the filesystem on the card02:33

jack-desktopgmcastil, of course ;p02:41
gmcastiljack-desktop: ok :)02:41

jack-desktopgmcastil, already did.02:44
gmcastiljack-desktop: then it's using it :) glad it worked for you02:44
jack-desktopgmcastil, "sudo swapon -p 32767 /dev/sde1"02:44

deahtihsworked fine before03:36
Thurin1FreeBSD ports are cool - but god could I use some apt-get goodness right about now :[03:36

deahtihsso it's always a problem on ubuntu?03:36
RequinB5i was having problems with find, why i switched to locate... i tried ls -R /path/to/dir | grep filename didn't work03:37

RequinB5mneptok, yeah, thanks :)03:37
mneptokgmcastil: Linksys does not make wifi chipsets03:37
RequinB5mneptok, i mean i got that03:37
gmcastilmneptok: i know...broadcom makes the chips for linksys03:38
RequinB5bruenig - permission to sub -name with -iname?03:38
mneptokgmcastil: which explains why Linksys has issues.03:38
bruenigRequinB5, if you need case insensitive, then use iname03:38
deahtihsi have a linksys router...03:38
RequinB5bruenig: k03:38

gmwWhat command would I use in sudo to move a font from my desktop to the usr/share/fonts folder?03:55
nomasteryodaQharos, edit your /etc/apt/sources.list replacing gutsy with hardy, then apt-get update && apt-get upgrade, repeat then apt-get dist-upgrade...03:55
jribnomasteryoda: please don't recommend that03:55
jribQharos: that's likely to break your install and not what you want03:56
nomasteryodaits my personal preference...03:56
zachalinkyes, but after I type emerald --replace, it goes to a blank line and no commands ork03:56
Hammer89RyanPrior: done. Thing is... it looks like if anything goes wrong it'll be my network/internet connection... which means I don't have access to support (part of the reason I'm hoping to catch it before it's an issue :) )03:56
nomasteryodait can break installs for sure03:56
RyanPriornomasteryoda, Qharos: That's extreme. You probably don't need to upgrade to Hardy just to get the latest BlueZ.03:56

shenronya but they wont be boot discs then04:12
ukufI'mma rephrase what I said. I installed the Broadcom Firmware, restarted, and now I don't see 'Wireless Connection' on the list, I just see 'Wired connection'.04:12
Sakkath_Scunizi: i'm on i386, cd is fine, don't need to remove 'quiet splash --' but xorg/kdm doesn't start. tried dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg and set it up, driver:nv (is that right?) and i can't find 1440x900@60 only @100 wtf (if i select 'medium')04:12
Scunizishenron: true.. not sure what to do to make them bootable.04:12
zachalinkwhat's the command to go to a directory in the terminal?04:12
shenronya, so right now I have one of the G3s converting them to .cdr files04:13
ukufI guess imma uninstall linux until i get a decent wireless card04:13
jrib!cli > zachalink (read the private message from ubotu)04:13
Sakkath_Scunizi: forgot -phigh04:13
jribzachalink: cd04:13
shenronI dont know how well .cdr is supported in linux though either04:13
ukuftry and stop me04:13
jinho326_is there an alternative to split() such that the order of the items is preserved?04:13
ScuniziSakkath_: nv should be the right generic driver.. kde can be a different animal sometimes.. there's also #kubuntu to check out.04:13

soulfly_420i have a weird sound problem.  no sound :(04:14
Flanneljinho326_: For which language? (you probably ought to ask in that particular language's channel)04:14
hobbzillahttp://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu_Edgy#Remote_Access states for Edgy: "Remote Desktop will only work if there's a GNOME login session"04:14
ScuniziSakkath_: this channel has typically 1200 users.. #kubuntu much less..04:14

Jangarisox, shenron04:14
hobbzilladoes the same hold true for Gutsy?04:14

shenronI want to make a boot disc Jangari04:16
Jangarioh, okay, sox won't help then04:16
tigransherl0k: When I'm running compiz and do that, and switch back to the one I was on, system hangs04:16
Jangaribut it'll very easily convert any bunch of audio files to cdr,04:17
sherl0kdoes it work with compiz disabled?04:17
ScuniziSakkath_: not sure what ImPS/2 is.. or why it's default04:17
=== dgtlchlk is now known as dgtl|screen
hobbzillaFlannel: okay, but can I connect when a user doesn't have an active console session?04:17
Sakkath_Scunizi: vs ExplorerPS/2--i chose /dev/input/mice04:17
tigransherl0k: Let me try, I'm guessing it should, one sec04:17
hobbzillaFlannel: I would like to be able to use VNC to connect when there is no one logged in and begin at the login window.04:17
sherl0kremember, compiz is still somewhat in beta04:17
ScuniziSakkath_: sorry I"m lost on this one.04:18
Flannelhobbzilla: What?  No.  Users can login simultaneouslt with no problem.  VNC is different than X forwarding, I have no idea how it works.04:18
Sakkath_Scunizi: 'no devices detected' - 'no screen found'04:18
sherl0khobbzilla, you can do it with x11vnc, I've done it before04:18
kenanhow come when i downloaded openoffice off the oo website, int he word processor, i dont have the minimze, maximze, and exit buttons at the top, it kinda goes full screen but i checked and its not set on that, why is that bar gone?04:18
sherl0kwhoa joinflood04:18
Jangarihaha, sweet04:18
danopiawho just hung for about 5 seocnds during netjoin?04:19
ubotunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like Freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit04:19
Jangarikenan: check that you have window decoration enabled in compiz04:19
Sakkath_wtf i'm on i386 and i still can't get gpm!04:19
hobbzillaFlannel: Isn't VNC the server responsible for Ubuntu's "System->Preferences->Remote Desktop"04:20
kenanJangari: emerald works fine in everyting, even the oo presentation and spreadsheet but its just the word processor thats weird04:20
arthusI need to reset Apache to default config04:20

arthusand haven't been able to do so04:20
sherl0ktigran, still not working eh?04:20
Jangarihold on, kenan, can you alt+click-drag and move the window down? maybe it's opening too high on the screen, i had that problem with heaps of apps04:20
Flannelhobbzilla: I have no idea04:20
Zirodayarthus: what about the instructions I gave ypu?04:20
sherl0kyou could just switch users :)04:20
hobbzillaFlannel: I have tried to get XDMCP setup, but it won't ever give me a login. It just sits there with the Gray screen.04:20
tigransherl0k: It works without compiz04:21
arthusZiroday: I ran uninstall with purge04:21
tigransherl0k: Compiz, nope04:21
arthusand then reinstalled04:21

shenron< Jangari> oh, okay, sox won't help then04:21
sherl0khobbzilla, x11vnc lets you access the PC from the login screen04:21

zachalinkso... is there a fix for this?04:23

ZambeziHow many characters in a filename can EXT3 and FAT32 (on my USB-memory) handle? I have a filename with 105 characters. No complain from EXT3, but where's the limit? And what about FAT32?04:23

kenanJangari: i honestly cant do that04:23

sherl0kZambezi, 25604:23

BodOmLaWi cant put my asus sata drivers on a floppy in ubuntu. I tried with wine, cause it gives me an .exe.  it says the drive deos not support image. What do I do?04:23

Jangarikenan, what if you right click the tab in your lower panel?04:24

mroci'm having a horrible time trying to get this monitor (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16824222011) configured.  choosing the generic lcd panel 1280x1024 option isn't working.  is this going to require editing xorg.conf by hand?  if so, could someone help walk me through it?04:24
hobbzillasherl0k: does x11vnc allow multiple interactive logins? i.e.if someone is already logged in at the Ubuntu box and I connect via x11vnc am I going to get an entirely new session? Or am I going to share KBM with the console user?04:24
ZirodayBodOmLaW: running drivers through wine does not work, the hard drive however should work out of the box, how is it formatted?04:24
hobbzillaFlannel: yes same subnet04:24
zachalinkso is a fix just to not close the terminal?04:25
Sakkath_Scunizi: dude, this is the install cd. kdm/xorg never starts.04:25
sherl0khobbzilla, no. what you're thinking of is an RDP session like Windows' Remote Desktop04:25
Sakkath_Scunizi: i never had ubuntu installed on this computer.04:25
arthusok, now back to what I was trying to do in the first place04:25
th0rhobbzilla it is possible to connect either way04:25
arthushow can I change documentroot in apache?04:25
kenanJangari: well i only have one panel which is at the top and that shows my open applications but the word processor overlaps it and i also have awn and i set it on auto hide but i cant bring it up when im in oo word processor04:25
ZambeziStarnestommy: sherl0k Thanks to both of you. No worries then.04:25
BodOmLaWive tried unallocated nfts, just the sata drive but window still says the partition is not compatible with windows04:25
FlannelZambezi: filename is 255 chars, but path total has no real limit.  With FAT32, its either 8.3 or 255, if you have unicode with LFN.04:25
arthusI tried doing it, but gave me a 403 error04:25
hobbzillasherl0k: yes similarly. But I think freenx or xdmcp is it's alternative for linux, no?04:26
ZirodayBodOmLaW: windows cannot read linux partitions without special drivers04:26
sherl0kjust apt-cache search for rdp04:26
Flannelhobbzilla: You just need to make sure your UDP packets are getting through.  I had that grey screen issue before, and its because my UDP was being blocked.  You can tunnel it through ssh, and it'll work without the UDP issues.04:26
sherl0kthere's probably a daemon for it04:26
hobbzillath0r: I understand it is possible to connect either way, but can you do it simultaneously.04:26
BodOmLaWit isnt a linux partition, it is another drive04:26
BodOmLaWwith no partition04:27
kenansherl0k: that doesnt work i cant even minimze it04:27
BodOmLaWubuntu is on the other sata drive04:27
Flannelarthus: Those are set in the sites-available/ folder's contents.  Since its a virtualhost specific configuration04:27
Jangarii don't know, kenan, can you do anything with the oo word window at all?04:27
BodOmLaWziroday can i pm?04:27
sherl0koh, it's oo. well it's a bloated java app, that would explain it :)04:27
arthusFlannel: that's where I changed it, but gave me a 403 error04:27
hobbzillaFlannel. the only thing that was weird when I enabled the xdmcp server is that netstat reports it "udp6       0      0 *:xdmcp                 *:*"04:27
sherl0karthus, chmod the folder to 77704:27
Flannelarthus: where did you change the folder to?04:28
kenansherl0k: the weird thing is that its only on oo word, everything works fine when i open oo presentation and spreadsheet04:28
arthussheri0k: I did that already04:28
hobbzillaFlannel: but then so does ssh and I can ssh just fine.04:28
arthusFlannel: /media/DOVE/public04:28
tigransherl0k: How would I start a app in a new X session?04:28
Flannelarthus: you just need to make sure www-data has read permissions to that folder04:28
hobbzillahow would i know if my UDP packets are getting through?04:28
ZambeziFlannel: Maybe I'm going to format my USB-memory to EXT3 later. I have long filenames, but not as long as hundred and no complain so I think it's activated by default.04:28
sherl0knot sure tigran, i haven't worked with multiple sessions much04:28

Cpudan80hobbzilla: You don't04:29

jscinozhehe i got shockwave working in the linux firefox :D04:30
Flannelarthus: sudo -u www-data ls /media/DOVE/public04:30

hobbzillabut you can't guarantee UDP packets will get through..04:32
hobbzillawhy even use UDP for XDMCP then?04:32
Cpudan80XDMCP ?04:32
Cpudan80I dont know what that is04:32
arthusFlannel: and a 403 error04:32
Flannelarthus: exactly.  Its unreadably by www-data04:32
hobbzillaXDMCP allows me to run an x server on my windows machine04:32
Flannelarthus: Once that command works, you'll no longer get the 40304:33
Cpudan80The main advantage UDP has over TCP is that UDP has lower startup costs04:33
Jangarifar out man, ssh'ing a 50MB file over a flakey wireless connection is really slow, and is fully consuming all my upload04:33
Cpudan80hobbzilla: Are you sure its using UDP?04:33
Flannelhobbzilla: Yes, XDMCP is over UDP.04:33
hobbzillaand perform x forwarding and interactive /remote admin04:33
hobbzillanetstat -l : udp6       0      0 *:xdmcp                 *:*04:33
foibleshello there04:33
Cpudan80Well but you have to SSH to the machine first right?04:33
Flannelhobbzilla: You may try X forwarding over ssh.  Its pretty simple, and there are some pre-fab tools out there (xming)04:33
foibleswhat would i use to mess with my iphone04:33

foiblesJangari, its my sisters, not mine04:34
Cpudan80Flannel: OK, but I dont the XDMCP people are too smart for programming the thing to use UDP only04:34
FlannelCpudan80: XDMCP has been around forever (well, not forever, but still), its not going away.  Then again, ssh tunneling has been out there forever too.04:34

Kevin`E_Data well, anything PC that isn't a mac, yes05:54

gmcastilcan someone please pastebin their /etc/profile for me05:56
Nephyriniambernie: Compiz is the 3D display system itself, and it comes with a set of basic plugins. Fusion is a more feature-rich set of plugins for compiz that most people use, hence Compiz Fusion05:56

david_JKaiForce: cool... I prolly wont need the bridge...05:58
Nephyriniambernie: Also, you'll probably want to install 'emerald' which is a window-decorator (draws borders on windows) that is used with compiz fusion, as opposed to the more basic gtk-window-decorator that comes with compiz by default05:58
jootgmcastil, no prob :-)05:58
PKdoRso it looks like i need to re install mu ubuntu cause I screwd with it to much05:59
KaiForcebridge looks useless05:59

iambernieNephyrin: Is Emerald some kind of plugin for Compiz?06:02
PKdoRani ideas? i much rather just fix it hen reinstall06:02
KaiForcethen you should set up a nat'ing firewall06:02
KaiForcehave the external interface take their ip and internally have it hand out rfc1918 addresses06:03
KaiForceto the laptop06:03
PKdoRas my installation wasalready just like i wanted it exept for a grub them and tthats when it all went wrong06:03
travisatPKdoR:  boot up the ubuntu live cd that you installed with and on the selection screen choose repair06:03
david_JKaiForce: I'll google it... I really don't what the heck you are talking about.. But it is going to happen..06:03
travisatPKdoR: go through the questions and choose to reinstall grub06:03
travisatPKdoR: now here is the tricky part before you do this you need to know where your boot is installed06:04
KaiForceok good luck06:04
Nephyriniambernie: Its a separate program - compiz only enables 3D rendering, so you need something to draw borders on windows and handle window positioning and title bars and stuff. Compiz comes with the gtk-window-decorator program which does this, but emerald is a more feature rich replacement for that program used with compiz-fusion06:04
KaiForcei've lost shift, caps lock etc on this freakin keyboard06:04
PKdoRtravisat even if im running in raid 0? its in /dev/mapper/nvidia_fafjibci306:05

kasansweatstrange problem - trying to get wireless working -- 'iwlist scan' picks up my network, but I can't get dhcp to get me an address. Am using the broadcom + bcm43xx. Any ideas? thanks.06:06
KaiForceugh why would shift stop working06:06
travisatPKdoR: yes in order to boot a kernel it needs to know where the kernel is.  you can actually edit the options in the grub menu.  I have had this happen when I moved my hard drives around in my case hda went to hdb so grub would not boot my linux partition because my /boot went from (hd0,1) to (hd1,1)06:06
david_JKaiForce: the IP forwarding stuff I just type in and never really understand06:06
david_JKaiForce: I'll try harder this time06:07
PKdoRtravisat thank you much06:07
KaiForceare you going to run your firewall on a pc with 2 network cards/06:07
david_JKaiForce: yeah06:07
KaiForceif so, look at one of the distros that accomplish that... the only one that comes to mind right now is leaf bering uclibc, but loook around because there are easier ones.....06:08
KaiForcemonowall maybe06:08
iambernieNephyrin:  Ok thanks, I think first need to have to look more into it. I'm a bit confused about the differences between Compiz, Compizfusion..06:08

underwatercowushimitsudoki: True, but it's getting better with each release. ;-D06:27
tritiumgmcastil: not at all.06:27
jcbytecolor: wifi drivers can be really tricky to get working, I had to try three different ones on my desktop before I got mine working06:28
badkittyHAHA winxp just crashed06:28

bytecolorjc, I can connect, but the connections are horrible compaired to what I get on the same lappy rebooted to Win2k06:28
jclewdvanity: what sound chip are they using? I know that Dell just started supporting linux on some of their computers06:29
tritiumgmcastil: good :)  Idle here, and ask as many questions as you need to.06:29
gmcastiltritium: but, some of the little things are driving me nuts - like wireless.  no idea where the configuration files for network interfaces are stored06:29
gmcastiltritium: hehe...i've been answering questions in here all evening :)06:29
underwatercowDoes anyone in here understand what ufw is? Is it like iptables? or does it manage iptables?06:29
lewdvanityBytecolor: I'm having the same problem 30% now and 90% with win2k.06:29
bytecolorlewdvanity: nod06:29
tritiumgmcastil: System -> Help section would help there, so would a search on wiki.ubuntu.com.   help.ubuntu.com has great documentation as well.  Finally:06:29
ubotuWireless documentation can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs06:29
gmcastilunderwatercow: google says its a management for iptables06:30

Mr-LonelYhow to add to host in ddclient? any idea?06:30
jcI'm getting this error every time I install or update anything:06:31
tritiumgmcastil: note that the network interfaces are configured in /etc/network/interfaces.  If you want Network Manager to manage a particular connection, *don't* configure it in /etc/network/interfaces.  Also, "man wireless"06:31
jcsorry the error is:E: cupsys: subprocess post-installation script returned error exit staus 106:31
gmcastiltritium: the wierd thing was that ifup/ifdown didn't work, even when the connection did06:31
underwatercowgmcastil: so then would it be like firestarter? but terminal based?06:31
gmcastiltritium: like right now, interfaces doesn't have wlan0 in it, even thought i'm using that nic06:32
tritiumgmcastil: ifup/ifdown only work for connections configured in /etc/network/interfaces.06:32
tritiumgmcastil: right, because Network Manager has auto-configured it.06:32
bytecolorbeen wanting to dist-upgrade, but I'm afraid I'll hose my system06:32
gmcastilunderwatercow: sure, i guess - i wrote my own firewalling scripts to manage iptables06:32
TheBlackOuttemplario: how is the internet faster in linux than windows or mac? I do like ubuntu and linux a lot but I do not think the OS affects speed heavily06:32
gmcastiltritium: so, interfaces is only for manually-defined interfaces?06:32
tritiumagain, you _don't_ want to configure an interface in /etc/network/interfaces if you want NM to configure it06:32
tritiumgmcastil: right06:32
gmcastiltritium: ah..and ifup/ifdown only deal with interaces configured in interafaces?06:33

gmcastiltritium: i'll check those out, then06:34
aaronpWhat the???  The partitioner uses 1MB = 1000000 bytes???06:34
gmcastilunderwatercow: pretty much all firewalling uses iptables - iptables is the kernel's packet filtering setup06:34
TheBlackOuttemplario: how so? explain how linux fastens the internet06:34
TheBlackOutif anyone was to control the speed, it would be your ISP06:34
jfkdsljioI think it was a joke.06:34

templarioof linux06:35
gmcastiltritium: yeah...i'm a little leery of handing the keys over to gui tools - i prefer to know what they're doing first06:35
templariois more fast06:35
underwatercowgmcastil: So... If I'm using firestarter, then there's no reason to use ufw, right?06:35
lewdvanityJc: I'm an idiot. Its not even a dell. Its a gateway my old one was a dell. Um, its a sigmatel 920006:35
scguy318templario: in what way? i'm curious06:35
TheBlackOuthave any reading material on that?06:35
TheBlackOutI have never heard such claims06:35
gmcastilunderwatercow: unless you prefer the UFW interface to firestarter06:35
gmcastilunderwatercow: they'll be different functionally, but they'll stil setup up rules in iptables06:36
underwatercowgmcastil: firestarter is GUI... but then, I seldom use the interface since I have the the rules I want in /etc/firestarter, and I always just back them up and restore them...06:36
gmcastilunderwatercow: i wrote scripts that configure my firewalling rules on bootup the way that i want06:36

gmcastiltritium: yup - thanks for the help06:36
jfkdsljioWhen he says "more fast" he loses credibility.06:37
templarioone of reasons06:37
gmcastilunderwatercow: yeah, from what i've heard, firestarter is realy good06:37
TheBlackOutso do you have any cited sources that validate your claims or reading materials? i just want to know and verify for my own benefit06:37
templariosorry theblackout my english is poor06:37
jclewdvanity: have you checked out http://www.linux-on-laptops.com/06:37
jcthey might be able to help06:37
gmcastilunderwatercow: now, it's possible that ufw comes with a set of firewalling rules that the ubuntu developers think is most useful for users06:37
blbrownis there some tool that will pick up my video card configuration and set it for me; I have two geforce cards; 5300 and 5200, trying to do dual monitor config.  It picks up one card in the xorg.  But, I can see it in the hardware information06:38

templarioof comunity Debian BR06:39
lewdvanityJC: Yes, my model isn't on there. I have an MT 3705 it's fairly new.06:39
gmcastilunderwatercow: no idea what the developers are doing06:39
underwatercowgmcastil: lol, well... thanks for the insight anyway... I think I'll just keep using firestarter... seems less complicated than uncomplicated firewall anyway ;-D06:40
gmcastilunderwatercow: i prefer easily modifiable and tunable firewalling rules, so i've never really found anything that i liked, so i just wrote my own scripts to set it at startup06:40
underwatercowgmcastil: is it not easy enough to open a gui and block or unblock ports? what more do you need?06:40
gmcastilunderwatercow: iptables isn't that hard to learn - it's real simple, if you have a knowledge of tcp/ip06:40
gmcastilunderwatercow: i want to be able to limit what ip addresses are able to connect on certain ports06:40
templarioand unix pure is better of hardware theblackout06:41
gmcastilunderwatercow: for example, even though port 22 is open, only certain IP addresses (or a range) can connect to it06:41
underwatercowgmcastil: like ip addresses from your country?06:41
templariogmcastil is a port of ssh 2206:41

S_Crdlb in these 3 days i almost installed 10 distros (including hardy , fedora 8 , and many others) non-working fine with me07:31
S_also hardy got mesa 7.0.2 but its not supporting my wifi07:31
crdlbcompiling mesa is extremely difficult and quite invasive, so I really wouldn't recommend attempting that on gutsy btw07:32
S_orbisvicis , i think you could find a list for window mangers in google (as i saw one before few years) try checking them as i am sure you would remeber :)07:32
yassinehi to all07:32
mercury_1900travis:  that's alright.07:32
S_i tried mesa on my old intel driver , it works fine with me , but i really dont know whats happening with x3100 as it says its not working07:33
mercury_1900ushimitsudoki:  i've tried the alternative install, but how do i install from the command prompt?07:33
yassine any body ???07:33
S_old intel gfx card*07:33
crdlborbisvicis: fbpanel is a very light gtk-based panel07:33
S_hi yassine07:33
ouellettesrtravis, when I boot my pc, my monitor says change input signal timings to h 64.2 v 60.2 I set xorg.conf to be h 60-65 and v 57-61, that didn't work, any ideas?07:34
ushimitsudokimercury_1900: it will install in text mode ... do you not get to the installer stuff? (been a while so I don't remember), but basically it's the ASCII-graphics style installation process07:34
yassinesee you later !!!07:34
eshaasemy computer randomly turns off if i actively use it, however if i don't use it but keep it on, it wont' randomly turn off... also, in order to turn the computer back on i have to unplug the power supply and re-plug it back in in order to power on the system, anyone have any idea whats going on?07:34
mutablehello, i found that when i add something like that: "JDK_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun [newline] JAVA_HOME="${JDK_HOME}" to /etc/enviroment, the variable JDK_HOME won't expand in defintion of JAVA_HOME. is there any workaround?07:34
mercury_1900ushimitsudoki:  i don't know the codes, couldn't find them on google.  it doesn't give me any options, just goes straight to the prompt, and the "help" command gives a list of available commands, none of which look like installer07:35
orbisviciscrdlb, pheww thanks been searching for that for a few 1/2 hrs07:35
travisouellettesr: try http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=8397307:35
ushimitsudokimercury_1900: that doesn't sound right ... when you boot from the alternatice install CD you should still get a menu that has obvious options - one of which is installation07:36
S_Anyone think that's i should recompile my kernel + getting mesa 7.0.2 on it? Or their would be a new update for gutsy , If their isn't i will do it07:36
brizbenhi need help with sed I need to find all the occurances of the word "babies" and replace it with the word "families" in a file called "familes.html" I got: "sed s/babies/families/ ./families.html" and it doesn't work. Can someone please help?07:36

mutableorbisvicis: i'll try put that variables in /etc/profile07:40
mutableorbisvicis: hope it will expand07:40
orbisvicismutable, ok then I wont try googling ; )07:40

mutableorbisvicis: yeah i had them in .profile07:42

orbisvicisi just stuck the java_home line in /etc/environment07:43
St0n3-C0lPreviously it used to detect my correct IP and all. Now a days it doesn't recognize my IP and when I manually configure afterwards my hostname and domain and dns ips...It 1-2 times has worked otherwise it just resolves the dns but net doesnt work :( I have LAN!07:43
orbisvicisit worked07:43
mutableorbisvicis: hmm, it looks i must restart, or kill some process that reads it07:44
mutableorbisvicis: thx for assistance07:45
orbisvicismutable, just to be on same playing field, the line should read: JAVA_HOME="/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun"07:45

Daisuke_Idowell, if you're looking to hardcode subs into a video, you're asking for all sorts of fun issues07:52
julio_pebert_man, use ffmpeg07:52
Daisuke_Idonone of which are actually fun07:52
ThreeFingerPetejulio_pe: GAP will take a video, reduce it to frames. add the text and save and upload to youtube07:52
ere4sijulio_pe, you make a .srt file which is a text file that has a time stamp on one line then the text on the next and repeat07:52

ThreeFingerPetejulio_pe: try sudo aptitude install gimp-GAP?07:56
ThreeFingerPetejulio_pe: or go to gimp.org07:56
Daisuke_Idoyeah, that's about as fast as secondlife is going to get.  but take my word for it, you're better off not wasting your first one on the second one.07:56
kousotuis there another driver I should install?07:57
St0n3-C0ljulio_pe: It used to before easily but now-a-days it doesn't detect my correct IP and when I go in network settings and setup hostname and dns ips...it starts doing DNS but still net doesn't work! only once or twice it worked correctly07:57

toresnthe command i provided will list the subfolder of album_dir as well, which i don't want... because then folders like "Disc 1" and "Disc 2" will be counted as well08:37
jetseRnhm, okay.. its just that i don't have a vista cd, it just came with my comp, and i loose all my warranty and insurance if i remove vista :/08:38

ere4sitoresn, from the look of that script I linked you to you don't want an easy thing - it is not straightforward08:40
regulatejetseRn: you can try resizing the vista partition, to make room for linux, then install workstation in linux, and configure a virtual machine to use a "psysical disk" (which is is your vista paritition) to emulate vista.08:41

carpediemere4si: well, sort of, though its not a rule.  my personal website is .org08:47
regulateeggo: the description sounds bizarre08:47
ere4siErik1, sells support to corps etc08:47
eggoI found the same proble in the ubuntu forums, with no response08:48
regulateeggo: to recover your data, you can boot with a live cd, and mount the partition your data is on, and copy it somewhere safe08:48
ushimitsudokibullgard4:  the apt-check script is in /usr/lib/update-notifier you can read it as see exactly what it does. It is part of the process that checks for updates to packages. You have been told this already by a couple of different people. Do you need more information than that?08:48
Erik1ere4si: how would that affect non-commercials like most of us ?08:48
eggois there a command to repair it in place?08:48
bahmanCould I write a DVD from my Ubuntu .iso CD?! In which way?!08:48
ere4sidoesn't really Erik108:49
regulateeggo: not a general "repair my computer" option08:49
regulateeggo: i think we'd have to know how exactly its failing08:49
ouellettesrhow do I figure out what tty a device is running on?08:49
eggono, I mean to repair ubuntu from the live cd without overwriting my home folder08:49
carpediemouellettesr: ps aux08:49
=== dgtlchlk is now known as dgtl|screen
carpediemouellettesr: acutally, simple "ps" is enough08:50
eggoAt the moment grub doesn't even start08:50
carpediemouellettesr: no, i take that back, I was right the first time08:51
bahmanIs there anyone here?!08:51
carpediembahman: no08:51
bahmanthanks carpediem :D08:52
carpediembahman: yes, i think the live cd has serpentine, but not 100% sure08:52
eggobahman: you will need a secondary drive to burn with08:52
bahmaneggo thanks, but could I add some directory's in Ubuntu CD live .iso?!08:53
JouvaI'm having issues using my bluetooth dongle. Seems like Ubuntu detects it's inserted, but even with "visible and connectable for other devices" checked, I can't find any other devices and other devices can't find my computer.08:53
bahmanThanks carpedim, I really the philosophy of carpediem ;)08:54
eggoyou'll need to build a new ISO, and unless your ramdrive is big enough to handle it, you'll need to store it on HDD08:54
bahmanThanks carpedim, I really LOVE the philosophy of carpediem ;)08:54

bullgard4ushimitsudoki: You said: " the apt-check script is in /usr/lib/update-notifier ." This is not true. /usr/lib/ does not contain update-notifier. (Ubuntu 7.10). What do you mean?09:01
* hfsdo is now away - Reason :09:02
ushimitsudokibullgard4: on my system (ubuntu 7.10 amd64), the apt-check script is in the /usr/lib/update-notifier/ directory. A search on packages.ubuntu.com confirms this is the default location for the script09:03
ushimitsudokibullgard4: you can try "locate apt-check" at the command prompt to see if you have the file and its location09:04
