WGGMkBronxAngel: HipHopFan85: if your router is serving DHCP to the PC's and the Server, then it is not a LAN issue.. if your router is just an ACCESS POINT for the PC's to get to the server which is serving DHCP then the problem lye's on your server's DNS records00:32
HipHopFan85BronxAngel: It means your PC's are not being given by DHCP server.Are you sure they are not set to static?00:32
bluefoxxlordleemo: wicd: package does not ecist00:32

lordleemobluefox get it from sourceforge google wicd00:34
jribmikebot: yes, I don't think you can do that.  You can just add stuff one by one00:34
jribxomp: you need to escape the space00:34
DRebellionBagelMaster: check, system -> administration -> software sources00:34
bluefoxxlordleemo: ok, will try that, ty00:34
knopper67xomp: it's in /usr/share/example-content/00:34
mikebotjrib: And you can't add subfolders and stuff either.00:34
WGGMkBronxAngel: does your server have 2 ethernet adapters? 1 coming in from modem and 1 going out to router? or do you just have the server attached to the router?00:34
DRebellionBagelMaster: its in the main repository00:34
danbhfivebluefoxx: i dunno then, id suggest to at least make sure you are updated00:35
mikebotjrib: Basically I want it like in Windows start menu when you add a folder you can expand the sub-folders and so on.00:35
ajhtiredwol1Is the root file the boot partition?00:35
danand_awmcclain - think you can do - but you have to create a local repository - why not just use dpkg??00:35

xompknopper67, funny thing is, I'm not sure if you're familiar with Istanbul, but when you're finished recording a desktop session you are prompted to save the file, in that box you are able to "preview" the screen recording and the video plays a treat in that but not in a standalone player like Mplayer or VLC lol00:43

satorisyes, that problem is no longer01:05
PriceChildPelo, I don't even know what I'll be having for breakfast tomorrow.01:05
Pelogoodhabit,  check what is available in add-remove01:05
bod_PriceChild, Kellogs Crunchy Nut KornFlakes?01:05
satorisso it's a compiz one. I'll check it out there. Thank you.... Bye!01:05
bluefoxxnajzlijiji: you there? you wanted to enable front USB ports on your computer correct? well in my expirence as long as the cable is pluged into the motherboard inside and the extra USB is enabled in the BIOS [eg option: enable legacy USB] then ubuntu should utilize them01:05
gmcastilkubitz: ok, thats what it looked like, but for some reason i thought that utf had some problems01:06
kubitzgoodhabit I'm just going to check but i would say DVD Shrink will probably work on Wine01:06
Pelosatoris, if this was about the title bars disapearing when you turn on the effects you just need to enable metacity or emerald to work with compiz01:06

cosmodadborncrazy: you need to run it after the boot process has nearly finished, e.g., by adding a call into /etc/rc.local. However, if you don't know what this is about, better use something like firestarter.01:08
devils-haven missing operand after01:08

Dr_willisorbisvicis,  theres those fuse-ftp filesystem tools. for mounting a ftp server as a local dir.  But i dont knowhow well it plays with nfs01:08
bod_fleishman, you need the correct repo's go into /etc/apt/sources.list and uncomment all the lines beginning with deb01:08

PeloTann,  consider that your connector may have moved or that the cable may be damages01:29
Tannbod_: no01:29
cosmodadTann: is it not working at all, or are just some keys or so malfunctioning?01:29
PeloTann, I don't have a clue then01:29
bod_Tann, ???01:30
TannPelo: I have tried and retried several times01:30
PeloTann, usb ?01:30
cosmodadTann: in the latter case, check the layout setting in KDE.01:30
Tanncosmodad: It doesn't work at all in KDE01:30
TannPelo: PS/201:30
kubitzZofo you can download things by http from the repositories - then you could get in onto the laptop01:30
cosmodadTann: eek.01:31
PeloTann, did you try to change the keyboard settings in kde ? you might have accicentaly removed it or someting01:31
fleishmanbod: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/54568/01:31
kubitzI'm guessing the issue is you can't get the laptop to access the net to get the driver to access the net?01:31
* Pelo doens't care for kde anyway , he can't realy see the problem 01:31
cosmodadTann: check KDE keyboard settings anyway.01:31
TannPelo: no. It was working one minute, and then i went to get something and when I came back it didn't work01:31
Zofoi need the driver but i cant find a good way to get it to intall01:31
PeloTann,  I assume you tried to reboot ?01:31

Peloatcla, you can run applications from the menu , or you can type the name of the app in the terminal01:40
gmcastilPelo: i think thats why things seem so helter skelter in here - a lot of people that have never used unix before and want to do a lot of more advanced things01:40

bruenigKama, for cmd in update upgrade; do sudo apt-get $option; done01:41
gmcastilbod_: of course...users's don't know what a terminal is01:41

HumbleLook, I've got a problem with partitions on my ubuntu install. I tried to install a windows/ubuntu dual boot situation using two seperate partitions and now Windows has gone ahead and deactivated the partition with Ubuntu on it. I need the files on my ubuntu partition and can't just whipe it and start again, so does anyone know a way in which I can just reactivate the partition with Ubuntu on it, even if it means deleting the Windows partition01:41
PeloKama, also , menu > system> admin > update manager01:41
gmcastilKama: you've no idea how annoying it is when people don't do their own reading first01:41
bruenigHumble, fs-driver.org01:41

mattgyver83ill look into it, thanks kubitz.01:42
Kamawant to trade places?01:42
Pelobruenig,  I jsut anser question as they come if I can01:42
bruenigif someone said that documentation was unnecessary because he could just bug someone in irc about it, I would think that is a bad thing to say but who am I01:42
gmcastilbruenig: i think that telling people to try google first and reading documentation is helping them - 90% of linux is learning where to find answers01:42
bod_atcla, i have played this game once or twice,. but setting up a server is beyond my knowledge,. explain how you would do it in windows,.,. i might be able to translate01:42
TannPelo: recovery mode didn't work01:42
gmcastilPelo: i do too...but it's hard sometimes, when no one has thought out their questions or done any reading at all01:43
danandHumble - how do you mean - deactivated?01:43
HumbleGmcastll I can't use the live CD, that's the other problem. I installed Ubuntu using unetbootin and don't have any blank DVDs laying around. This fs-driver thing may just work though.01:43
bod_gmcastil, but being told to google it everytime you ask a question is so annoying01:43

cabroni_is there a hp laserjet 1000 driver for linux?01:43
tom2002that would produce a windows program ..01:44
bod_gmcastil, but google is useless if the person using it cannot phrase the question correctly,. almost as useless as you telling them to google it01:44
bruenigCruller, check in alsamixer if the volume is up01:44
onexusedCruller: What sound card?01:44
gmcastilbod_: i disagree01:44

DOOM_NXwhat's the command/program to check the speed of ur hard drive?01:46
Kamanot only 200 pages, but thousands of pages, referring to many distros.  It could be written in chineese for all it helped me01:46
tom2002would using the windows.h file produce a linux program ????01:46
gmcastilbod_: i agree with that...but a lot of the questions come from people that have never used linux before asking about how to configure an apache server or samba or some other thing01:46
atclabod_: ok when u install there should be .exe file which contains server's set up. i need to find that file and run it, problem is i dunno which files are running or not, and how to run files on linux. what command should i use to open\run file01:46
gmcastilbod_: it's clear that the majority of the people in this channel haven't even bothered to read any of the documentation01:46
danandnancy - try to explain what your error is :)01:46
CrullerI ran in to a lot of guides with people seemingly having the same problems, but it was mostly just 'turn your mic settings on in alsamixer"01:46

kubitzgmcastil to be fair one of the first things most of us newbies need to do is configure Samba as we usually need to carry on sharing with windows.01:47

bod_kubitz, ntfs3g    lets you share files with windows partitions,.,. whyyou need samba (which i dont know about) is beyond me01:48
bruenign08l3J_, so you are just complaining about gui failure or do you have a real problem?01:48

Ex-Cybertom2002, windows.h is really a shortcut for a bunch of Windows libraries and constants; on a Linux system, each major library package has its own include file... for example if you are writing a GTK program, you do: #include <gtk/gtk.h>01:55

jbw4guys, I have a strange problem. I just tried to install git vc via apt-get. The install failed, and when I re-ran it, it complained about missing /etc/inittab. I checked, and sure enough..../etc/inittab is not there. Now, I haven't used this file in ages...does Gutsy still use an /etc/inittab or does it place it elsewhere?01:58

Dr_willisjbw4,  ubuntu is using the upstart system. Inittab is not used much by ubuntu I think02:01

PeloFlannel, do you know how to Setup a spooldirectory without printfilter. Serialport baudrate must be 9600.02:01
astro76aconbere: it seems to be just syntax checking and edit locking... at the same time I don't see the sense purposefully not using it02:01
Dr_willis!upstart | jbw402:01
ubotujbw4: Upstart is meant to replace the old Sys V Init system with an event-driven init model.  For more information please see: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/02:01
aconbereastro76: yeah visudo just locks and what not02:01
FlannelPelo: No02:01
* Pelo can never get any help in this channel 02:01
bod_atcla, linux does not use .exe as a file extension, as you no every thing you do in gui, is just run in command line, where you cant see it,. so we set an appliaction to be execuatable, instead of giving it a .exe extension,.,. this solves are problems02:02
Flannelaconbere: You should *always* use visudo02:02
aconbereFlannel: why?02:02
Flannelaconbere: it saves you from making mistakes that'll render sudo useless.02:02
Dr_willisvisudo error checks befor exiting. :)02:02
astro76aconbere: it's funny you are having unexplained issues and asking why ;)02:02
bod_atcla, thus being able to run anny applicatiion from terminal becomes a simple    programme     instead f   programme.exe02:02
aconbereastro76: clearly it's not smart enough to recognizee mispellings :)02:02
atclabod_: yea u rite02:03

bod_atcla, and were proud of it,.,. theres alot of windows bashers about, so try not to compare things, unless you wanna start an argument02:03
aconbereFlannel: but frankly I'm not concerned about locking of sudoers, so I don't see why I should use visudo02:04
aragornrainwalker: i have heard that before. how do you install normal xchat then?02:04
bod_atcla, but anyway, have you found that file yet???02:04
Pelogmcastil, first time I 've heard of it , maybe in #openoffice.org02:04
Flannelaconbere: Its not a locking issue primarily.  Its a "dont save if you have syntax errors, because that'll make you unhappy" issue.02:04
rainwalkeraragorn: I think you just install it with synaptic; install "xchat" instead of "xchat-gnome"02:04
gmcastilPelo: "javaldx: Could not find a Java Runtime Environment"02:05

aragorni am not a 'sudo'02:10
Flannelaragorn: then you can't install regular xchat, ask your system administrator to do it for you02:10
Peloaragorn, that is why you do not have a add remove in your application menu, you do not have permission to install applications,  you will need to ask the computer's admin02:11

Pelogmcastil, remove all the java from the comp, reboot and then try reinstalling just java 6 -jre02:38
jebuswasmynameOr is there a way to remove packages on ubuntu back to a base install (or nearly base install)?02:38
gmcastilPelo: does your JRE show up in that window of installed jres?02:39
PeloWhoNeedszzz, you can revert to the previous xserver,  check in synaptic find the packge , right click properties , you should be able to isntall the preivious version ofthe package02:39
arrrghhhWhoNeedszzz, did you install the driver via the restricted driver manager?02:39
Pelogmcastil, in open office ? yes, that is where I got that link from02:39

K_NineWhoNeedszzz: Did you try to uninstall the driver and re-install.02:40
arrrghhhWhoNeedszzz, and if X is borked you can always edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and change the nvidia driver to vesa02:40
WhoNeedszzzK_Nine, yes, i installed the latest driver02:40
WhoNeedszzzarrrghhh, NO! vesa sucks02:40

toresnit looks terrible in my gnome-terminal (proggy clean)... not at all like it probably should be02:42
WhoNeedszzzK_Nine, the nvidia manager says it is using the latest02:42
Pelogmcastil, you can also try removing OOo and reinastallling that02:42
K_NineWhoNeedszzz: Oh, that's right, you did binary.02:42
WhoNeedszzzK_Nine, yes that is the only way it installs02:42

arrrghhhbut can anyone help me get xfce or gnome for that matter to produce some visual feedback when i start a program02:58
arrrghhhK_Nine, i don't know about the less bloat part... but there's more options in kde, and gnome *seems* to do things automagically better02:59
arrrghhhlike unbreakable X, the new printer zeroconf thing, that's all 7.10 gnome specific02:59
jfkdsljiowell thanks, i like gnome because it doesnt krash all the time02:59

qaesaror how do i use a DVD burning a cd iso, or where is the DVD iso of 7.1003:04
n6hggsudo ssh root@
Dr_willisqaesar,  why bother with the dvd? the cd is a much smaller download.03:04
rainwalkerDr_willis: that's what I mean, jfkdsljio says mint won't be able to because it's going debian, but ubuntu is based on debian, so what's the problem?03:04
arrrghhhqaesar, you can burn a cd iso to a dvd, but you said you didn't have a dvd burner03:04
K_Nineqaesar: Go to Distrowatch.com to find the DVD.03:04
Peloqaesar, you can burn a cd iso to a dvd it should work03:04

cellofellowhey, does anybody know how to scan an IP range for used addresses?03:04
qaesarno, i have one, but i have only DVDRs and no CDs03:05
n6hggyea, oh well03:05
Peloqaesar, and you can find the dvd.iso on the ubuntu.com site, from the dl section jsut select pick a mirror03:05
Dr_willisrainwalker,  last i looked mint was thinking bout going to a debian base.  if it does. then there will be issues.  Of course If it does that - i will stop using Mint.03:05
arrrghhhqaesar, you can burn cd images to dvds...03:05
qaesarand nero wont let me burn the cd iso to a dvd iso03:05
jfkdsljiorainwalker because ubuntu repositories are for ubuntu, not all ubuntu repositories will work right on a regular debian install.03:05
arrrghhhit's just kinda a waste03:05
blackace11can anyone assist me in getting ndiswrapper working on my dell d520? i've been to 2 different walkthroughs and can't get it working03:05
arrrghhhqaesar, if you're in windows use imgburn03:05
Dr_willisrainwalker,  mixing debian and ubuntu repos is the issue :)03:05
rainwalkerDr_willis, jfkdsljio: why would they move to debian?03:05
arrrghhhrainwalker, probably stability03:05
wormintrudeqaesar, if u're in winDOS, just toss the thing03:06
Bonyohi everybody03:06
Dr_willisrainwalker,  go ask the Mint guys why they are talking about moving.  Could be they dont like the 6mo release stuff.03:06
jfkdsljioi'm not sure why, but they already have an alpha version available03:06
arrrghhhi'm goin with stability03:06
Dr_willisrainwalker,  Mint has some neat things.. but really i dont see much point in it, ubuntu releases keep getting better and better and make the spinoffs like mint seem redundant.03:06
arrrghhhso... visual feedback on programs that run?  like the silly bouncing icons in kde?03:06
K_Ninearrrghhh: There was a post in the Mint forum on why but I can't remember now. It was in general announcements.03:07
arrrghhhthat don't always work right and piss me off sometimes03:07
jfkdsljiomint has more of the "just works" flavor03:07
Dr_willismost of the mint 'enhancements' are just toolks they wrote in python. and a few other tweaks.03:07

dsmith_anyone install ubuntu on a SUN server?03:44
jfkdsljioI have found some of emeralds theme engines to slow things down a little, in comparison to the regular GTK.03:44
Sir_Fawnpugdsmith_, I hae03:44
Pelorobdig,  earlier I figured out it might be similar to what I did to get efax working ,  seting up a newtork printer that was redirected to the modem , in this case a fake spooler that would send to the com1 port for the plotter03:44
Sir_FawnpugI have*03:44
Sir_FawnpugSorry, I'm on a laptop and I'm on pain meds because of my wisdom teeth, I may not type straight03:45
dsmith_Sir_Fawnpug: sorry to hear that hope you get better; which model if I may ask?03:45
Sir_Fawnpugdsmith_, well it was a workstation, but yes, I've installed ubuntu on sun03:46
Ranbeehi, does anyone know the name of the browser which has a similar name to - Kamikaze?03:46
rskRanbee: konqueror?03:46
Sir_Fawnpugdsmith_, a sparcstation 5 if I recall correctly. I know it was an UltraSparc IIi based machine, that was supposed to support PC hardware03:46
Ranbeersk: no, not konqueror. i think it's from japan03:46
robdigPelo: makes sense...and i think this method should do something similar...i hope03:46
dsmith_Sir_Fawnpug: I was looking at sun servers/WS for use03:46
dsmith_sorta old03:47
Sir_Fawnpugdsmith_, you mean you're looking at buying one or that you already have one?03:47

dsmith_or buying a used one from ebay *shrug*03:47
Sir_FawnpugWell I got my sparc for less than $7503:47
Sir_FawnpugCheck out government surplus sales, you can often get not too bad hardware for cheap there03:48
K_NineTime to watch Dr. Who.03:48
Sir_FawnpugYou know, I've always wondered how you can have a FAQ if nobody's asked you any questions, haha03:49

Ranbeersk: this is it if you want to know - Kazehakase03:49
K_NineNo, reruns. But Torch Wood is new.03:50
dsmith_Sir_Fawnpug: I know about the gov auctions I acquired soo much junk at really cheap $$$, then turned around and sold it for more03:50
fxdAlright! I got my wireless working! But the sound which I just had working is now suddenly not working. Can anyone help me out?03:50
Sir_Fawnpugdsmith_, most of the time the only thing you hae to worry about with gov auctions is the lack of an operating system, but that's really no problem with a good distro around03:51
Sir_FawnpugAlthough I am inheriting an RS6K pretty soon, and I'm not sure if I'd be able to use anything besides AIX on it.03:52
pingucan anyone point me in the direction of a list of compatible printers for ubuntu03:52
Dr_willispingu,  cups.org03:53
Sir_FawnpugDr_willis, you beat me to it.03:53
Dr_willispingu,  ubuntu uses cups. :) so the cups.org site has details on printers.  I would avoid canon, perhaps stick with HP.03:53
Sir_FawnpugPingu, if you're looking at buying a new printer, the HP 1280 works really nice03:54
ubotuWireless documentation can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs03:54
Sir_FawnpugIt's a scanner too03:54
jfkdsljiowho's more elitist, gentooers or debianers03:54
dsmith_pingu: get HP03:54
o_told ya I'd be bak03:54
Sir_Fawnpugjfkdsljio, debianers for sure.03:54
kahrytanSir_Fawnpug-> Lexmark seems to have nice support too03:54
dsmith_1020 series03:54
* Dr_willis agrees with Sir_Fawnpug :)03:55
jfkdsljioK thanks.03:55
fragged2jfkdsljio: I wouldnt call gentoo or debian elitist, its just some Ubuntu users give us the shits03:55
Dr_willisLexmark at one time was best used as a doorstop. :)03:55
Sir_FawnpugOf course, I'm biased (I'm a gentooer)03:55

lilg111111does anybody know a progam like object bar for windows03:55
lilg111111that used in linux03:55
nickrudjfkdsljio: they both think highly of themselves03:55
jfkdsljionickrud, Ok i'll keep that in mind.03:56
Sir_Fawnpuglilg111111, what is "object bar"? Do you mean something kind of like gnome applets?03:56
o_tried to use synaptic to dl ktorrent..get an error "E: /var/cache/apt/archives/linux-image-2.6.20-16-386_2.6.20-16.33_i386.deb: subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 103:56
o_I'm lost ??03:56
nickrudjfkdsljio: but it's better to not think of people by distro, but by their behavior03:56
kahrytanDr_willis->  Perhaps. HP has their doorstops too. I recently moved and I never got around to buying new ink for my hp. Lexmark Z53 has new ink in it so I am using it til I get around to buying ink for hp. Oddly, Ubuntu supports Z53 out of the box while Xp doesnt.03:56
lilg111111its that bar that mac has that you can use to start programs03:56
jfkdsljioI figure a group is a group, and facts related to that group are facts. But each person as an individual deserves a fair chance.03:57
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about awn - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi03:57
fragged2agreed with nickrud, there are idiots in every community they just seem more common in certain ones (Windows, MacOS, Ubuntu and other easy distros)03:57
Sir_Fawnpugkahrytan, I've avoided lexmark because of their marketing with their ink03:57
Dr_williskahrytan,  ive had to many 'free' printers included with computers.. that are the cheap doorstop lexmarks. :)03:57
jfkdsljioawn is sorta cool, but nothing is more fun than kiba-dock03:57
Dr_williskahrytan,  i put them on a rummage sale for $10 each - unopened. :P03:57
djznhi, is there a way to "convert a xvid/divx" avi file, into DVD-Video VTS_xx.vob outputs with menus and stuff?????03:57
jfkdsljioand its not KDE stuff, despite the k in the beginning03:57
kahrytanDr_willis->  Wasn't included. It was left behind by previous owners of a condo.03:57
portablejimanybody use campcaster on Gutsy?03:57
Sir_Fawnpugnickrud, do you believe that a community can take on it's own mentality?03:58
nickrudfragged2: now, I wouldn't tar people who are low on the learning curve idiots, I tend to reserve that for people who have little tolerance for the learners03:58
kahrytandjzn->  with menus ... Linux doesnt have a decent dvd menus creator.03:58
fragged2nickrud: mmm maybe I didnt phrase my statement right. There are some out there who have genuine problems and are ready to do a little bit of research - they are the good ones. Problem is the users who refuse to help themselves,03:59
Sir_FawnpugI mean I would almost agree with you, except channels like #debian and #java really do seem, by default, really do seem to have an elitist atmosphere03:59
jfkdsljiofragged2, there it is. the ones who refuse to help themselves are the culprit03:59
Dr_willisdjzn,  there are tools to  create dvd layout/disks - if thats what you mean.  videotrans  qdvdauthor  devede   and others.03:59
kahrytanDr_willis->  not all of those create menus03:59
Dr_williskahrytan,  your mileage may vary :)03:59
mkquistdjzn: def take a look at qdvdauthor, i believe it does04:00
Dr_williskahrytan,  i normally put 1 video per disk. so the kids dont een have to have the remote.04:00
nickrudfragged2: I won't argue about the ones who refuse to help themselves, but I still try to teach them they must. That's the most rewarding success04:00
kahrytanDr_willis->  I tried to find a good dvd author program.04:00
Sir_FawnpugWow, you all have to forgive me. My pain medicine just kicked in and I'm... uh.. not completely there anymore.04:00
kahrytanDr_willis->  you dont do season dvds?04:00
ridge-meisteranyone here use xmame?  when i start up "flying shark" the screen is way too small.  is there a way to adjust that?04:00
Dr_williskahrytan,  deede does menus i belive.04:00
fragged2Sir_Fawnpug: no matter how easy a problem is to solve it, if you go into one of those rooms and state that you have already tried google, rtfm, and many other things, as well as phrasing your question right, you will more often then not get an answer04:00
Pelorobdig, thanks for the trouble, I'm off to bed04:01
Dr_williskahrytan,  i really havent messed with them much.04:01
Pelog'night folks04:01

Dr_willisridge-meister,  xmame --help  - theres a scale option04:01
dsmith_Sir_Fawnpug: 400Mhz Processo??04:01
Sir_Fawnpugdsmith_, huh? You mean on my sparc?04:01
Sir_FawnpugMy sparc, I believe, was a 233MHz, but I could be wrong04:02
fragged2I actually find the ubuntu community better to have intelligent debates with, such as whether Windows is a stable operating system, which communities are more elitist and the such04:02
dsmith_Sun Ultra 5 Workstation04:02
kahrytandjzn-> Here's a nautilus script to us for converting xvid to mpeg  (vob is mpeg video)04:02

Sir_FawnpugI don't hae my sparc next to me at the moment, I'm at my parent's house04:02

Jangaridoes someone know the syntax for putting an ssh server share on fstab?04:02
Sir_Fawnpugdsmith_, it could very well be 400Mhz04:02
erawfishfragged2: that's not a discussion, in #ubuntu this is OT blabbering. go to a usenet advocacy group for this. they argue this wrt windows since 1985 there. much more experience04:02
Sir_Fawnpugfragged2, I agree that the ubuntu community is amongst the best community in open source04:03
fxdcan anyone help me with sound?04:03
erawfishFaithful: possibly when you installed sshf/fuse04:03
kahrytandjzn->  best tool on windows is gui4ffmpeg to convert videos.04:04
Sir_FawnpugIt's kind of like what Ken Miller says about science. People misunderstand science sometimes because scientists shun public roles.04:04
ryanI installed mplayer last night and now all video playback using any player is scrambled or non-existant04:04
Dr_willisJangari,  i normally use the fuse-ssh tools to mount a ssh server as a local diretory04:05
JangariDr_willis: sshfs?04:05
jfkdsljio"i installed ubuntu and it borked my computers power switch, i think ubuntu devs owe me 15 dollars for that"04:05
kahrytanjfkdsljio->  that is funny04:05
Dr_willisJangari,  somthing like that. I alwyas get the names messed up.04:06
Dr_willis!find sshfs04:06
ubotuFound: sshfs04:06
Dr_willis!info sshfs04:06

fragged2jfkdsljio: ubuntu fanboi's generate a lot of anger on digg... but that website gives MacOS and Windows bad names aswell IMO04:06
ridge-meisterDr_willis: thanks :)04:06
Dr_willisOn the digg forums - everyone is free to rant equally!04:06
ryananyone have similar issues or know a fix?04:06
Sir_Fawnpugfragged2, well truth be told even OSX has its criticisms04:07
Jangarii actually have sshfs, but i find it a bit buggy, says it mounts it, but the mountpoint it empty, then can't unmount it because it says the mountpoint isn't empty04:07
jfkdsljiofragged2 agreed04:07
Jangarithen nautilus can't unmount iit because it isn't on the fstab04:07
=== crypt0 is now known as crypto
Sir_FawnpugI mean not that I think digg is a great community for debate or whatever04:07
jfkdsljioPersonally I don't see what's so great about OSX, It's just a proprietary linux with a dumb-down affect, but what do I know I dont even use it.04:08
L7If you hear me :/04:08
fragged2Sir_Fawnpug: As does linux, windows, bsd, and every other OS in exsistence... The best quote I've seen is 'There is no best OS for every situation' which is probbably one of the most intelligent statements I'd seen for a while on digg04:08
=== crypto is now known as crypt0z
ryanNo idea if its related but my desktop appearance settings and compiz keep reverting back to default normal...04:08
Sir_Fawnpugfragged2, well I suppose that's the point I was trying to make.04:08
Sir_FawnpugEven a two-byte program can have bugs in it.04:09
jfkdsljioIn what case is OSX the best possible OS?04:09
jfkdsljioOnly if you run it in KDE.04:09
Sir_Fawnpugjfkdsljio, from an end-user's perspective it's not bad.04:09
jfkdsljioThat I can agree with.04:09
Sir_FawnpugAs far as best, well, I personally think only a Free operating system can come close to reaching that.04:10
LKCcan awn and emerald be on at the same time?04:10
fragged2jfkdsljio: I've heard a lot of posative talk about it being good for Multimedia development, some video studio tool that only runs on mac apparently craps all over every other piece of software04:10
djznwhy don't we have a foobar2000 like application with those features?04:10
ridge-meisterDr_willis: that helped a lot, it seems the game is moving just a little too fast.  i've looked over the docs for xmame, but don't know how to turn the speed down.  maybe it's just me and i've slowed down :)04:10
fragged2djzn: you mean like xmms?04:10
mkquistOSX  is probably the best if you are using ProTools and the lot04:10
jfkdsljioAh yes those multimedia applications.04:11
djznfragged2: xmms won't masstag, won't calculate replaygain, and won't convert on the fly to other formats.04:11
Sir_Fawnpugfragged2, although I think ubuntu studio could potentially change that. I tried it a while back, and I was very impressed with what came with it out of the box04:11
Sir_FawnpugAnd what worked04:11
jfkdsljioompaul most definitely is not here04:11
mkquist proprietary hadware and all that...04:12
Sir_Fawnpugmkquist, well I think the big problem with the hardware is that it's getting harder and harder to justify paying premium for mac hardware anymore.04:12
=== bmk789 is now known as bmk789_schlafen
Sir_FawnpugYou used to be able to justify it, because you could say, "I'm getting a M68k/PPC/Whatever)04:13
fragged2Agreed about the hardware being expensive, but its what the mac community is targeting, middle to upperclass homes and workplaces that want pretty desktops in pretty, stock cases04:13
Sir_FawnpugAs a hardware geek, that idea almost makes the thought of buying one worth the money04:13
mkquistSir_Fawnpug: I'm not in the industry, but was talking to some who are and he kinda echoed that same thing, considering the cost of powerful hadware is dropping04:13
mkquistSir_Fawnpug: the one thing mac still does nice is the design tho04:14
mkquistp r e t t y .... =P04:14
pariah... to some04:14
Sir_Fawnpugmkquist, oh, don't get me wrong, the design is very pleasing on a mac.04:14
fragged2Apple dont even care about low cost hardware or alternatives, take a look at the iPod range, how little love has the shuffle been getting over the years?04:14
Dr_willisridge-meister,  theres some frontends to xmame. kde has some and so does gnome.04:15
Sir_FawnpugAnd they have always paid special attention to user interface standards.04:15
mkquistno i dont thnk they do,  I kinda thin FSJ has it right, there not for the masses... lol04:15
Tygirwhat is the best prog to use for .rar and .par files?04:15
fragged2Tygir: unrar for rar :D04:15
Dr_willisApple cares about Apple. :) and $$$.  heh.04:15
travisatTygir: pypar2 for par2 imo04:15
jfkdsljioi dont like ipods, there i said it.04:15
Dr_willisIm not sure ive seen any rar tools for messing with .par files under linux but i never looked.04:15
Sir_Fawnpugfragged2, well, for a while, they did, the mac mini is a good example04:16
celiousDr_willis: just like any other business.04:16
Sir_FawnpugAnd I almost bought a mac mini, you know04:16
mkquistjfkdsljio: daring...04:16
LKChow do i turn my new awn dock on?04:16
Dr_williscelious,    some are worse then others.04:16
fragged2Still, Windows took one too many acid trips while designing vista... I cant stand the look of the theme,04:16
Sir_FawnpugBefore I learned that it'd suck trying to extend it04:16
travisatfragged2: it looks better then xps default imo04:16
jfkdsljiothe mac mini, and the imac seem like laptops to me, as far as hardware manipulation is concerned04:16
Sir_Fawnpugfragged2, haha, well you have to admit, the vista theme is a bit better than the "little tykes" theme that ista has04:16
Dr_willisjfkdsljio,  worse then laptops i belive. :)04:17
mkquistwindows at this point is only required for gaming (sigh) and photoshop (sigh more..)04:17
FenyxGood evening everyone.04:17
jfkdsljioI have photoshop CS2 working fine in wine .9.54, but its slower04:17
travisatmkquist: wine is getting pretty good for photoshop I think, I haven't tried it lately as I have gotten used to gimp04:17
yuHelp! Can I install eeexubuntu using SD card?04:17
mkquisttravisat: yea, been trying to get a good handle on gimp04:17
Sir_FawnpugI guess the gaming thing was solved for me a while ago. The only PC game I really play much of anymore is the Sims 2, and that hasn't been in months04:18
ridge-meisterDr_willis: i am using Gnome.  Would the Rute book be a good one to read about Linux administration?04:18
mkquisttravisat: have you had it close on you during work.  seems an ongoing thing, sometimes04:18
travisatmkquist: gimp is vastly underrater04:18

Sir_Fawnpugyu, it depends on the size of the card04:19

Sir_Fawnpugcompwiz18, possibly, but it depends on the situation04:19
Sir_Fawnpugyu, that may be a tight fit for xubuntu04:19

gigamonk`I've tried resizing them but I think they're aleady at their minimum size.04:20
Dr_willisridge-meister,  for bools - i find that learning the interface/gui disent need a book. :) get books with lots of words.. not pictures - about sysadmin, and other topics. Not the desktop.04:20
yuto gigamonk. . Alt+Left button, move the mouse04:20
Dr_willisridge-meister,  there is a free ubuntu book out also. in pdf format.04:20

travisatjoshual_: ah well I think just libdvdcss204:24
Sir_Fawnpugcompwiz18, hmm, I guess I don't understand entirely what you want, but you might look into rsync04:24
travisatjoshual_: you can get the deb from the repos at medibuntu04:24
compwiz18Sir_Fawnpug: yeah, I thought of that too, but it seems like a lot of work ;)04:24
Sir_FawnpugIf you want your home directories shared by, let's say NAS, look at something like NFS04:24

pianomanfragged2: neither am I, actually. I just got the PC from a friend, and decided to use that for Ubuntu.04:37
Sir_Fawnpugprotcront, it really depends on which UI is easier for you to use04:37
travisatI suggest fvwm204:38
Sir_Fawnpugsinglesun1, believe it or not, yes.04:38
travisatalthough I use gnome because I am to lazy to fiddle with fvwm for a week to get to where I like it04:38
singlesun1fragged2, i believe damn xubuntu uses xfce...04:38
pianomanfragged2: maybe the type of hard drive has something to do with it?04:38
singlesun1fragged2, oops.. i mean damn small linux as well.. LOL04:38
fragged2pianoman: Welcome to the linux community, if I were you I'd be lazy and go download an Ubuntu 7.04 CD, or wait for 8.x to come out as it may have better support for your hardware (Unless you can figure out your bug)04:39
protcrontRAM is 1GB so i need light and attractive interface from which i can use eclipse04:39
Sir_Fawnpugsinglesun1, IIRC, DSL uses fluxbox04:39
Tygirtravisat: i dont understand...04:39
ryanSir_Fawnpug: wait i installed camorama too04:39
fragged2DSL uses a blackbox based backend I think (Maybe ICEWm etc not sure), and yeah I use xubuntu waiting for gentoo installer to compile stuffs on my second box04:39
travisatTygir: go to the webpage www.medibuntu.org there should be intructions to add to apt sources.list04:39
singlesun1Sir_Fawnpug, this is correct.... ;) im tripping... just got done using like 5 different live cd's today... and dealt with xubuntu on my wifes pc... and ubuntu on mine... lol then bt2 on my laptop04:40
Sir_Fawnpugryan, ahh, well I'm not familiar with camorama, but you might check out if that's part of your problems04:40
fragged2pianoman: its unlikely the hard drive would have much to do with it, provided it was in working order before you installed ubuntu on it... it may be the IDE controller or something but the easyiest sollution is to try another version or distribution04:40
Tygirtravisat: i tried...i dont see it04:40
Sir_Fawnpugsinglesun1, ahh, well that's no problem, I'm on pain medicine right now04:40
travisatTygir: go to this page https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu scroll down a bit there should be the list of how to install it to your repo04:40
pianomanfragged2: I've used Ubuntu since 5.1 on a much larger system than the Optiplex, just figured I'd try 6.06 on this one (1 GHz PIII)04:40
singlesun1Sir_Fawnpug, haha04:40
fxdhow do you launch a program like amarok from the terminal?04:41
fragged2afaik dell uses intel based chipsets so I'm suprised that its not working correctly, then again I have lots of intel chipsets reporting as IDE instead of SATA and vice versa04:41
Sir_Fawnpugsinglesun1, I just got my wisdom teeth out yesterday. They prescribed me vicodin.04:41
pianomanthat's odd04:41
singlesun1Sir_Fawnpug, ewww... i cant stand vicodin... makes me itchy for a bit and nauseous... then you feel ok04:41
zouzoufor some odd reason, when i plug a tvcard (USB) bttv, but bttv is not loaded niether does it exist! isn't it supposed to be compiled with the kernel in feisty?04:41
ryanSir_Fawnpug: alright thanks, also note that totem is saying none of the codecs or plugins are installed, but they are04:41
Sir_Fawnpugsinglesun1, I didn't say I liked it, haha04:41
Sir_FawnpugI would much rather prefer to drink and smoke cigarettes right now04:42
fragged2pianoman: a more up to date sysytem wont really require /alot/ more guts, but it may help with hardware thats not working04:42

nickrudb4l74z4r: check your physical connection, probably something is loose somewhere04:47
pmratpoisonhello! correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that if you choose "recovery mode" from grub (default installation) you get a # terminal without any password inquiry whatsoever. Isn't that a security issue?04:47
travisatpmratpoison: if somebody has access to your box it really doesn't matter04:47
nickrudpmratpoison: letting anyone have physical access to your machine is a security issue, there are many other ways in besides recovery mode04:48
Flannelpmratpoison: Physical access to a machine is a security issue04:48
fragged2pmratpoison: an attacker that has access to a physical machine means you have more of a problem then just a boot option04:48
dimedohey guys, i somehow managed to remove the shutdown and restart options from my logoff button menu. any idea how i could recover this?04:48
Flannelpmratpoison: If it bothers you, you can ask for a password to get into recovery mode04:48

silent_I'm having an issue with rhythmbox crackling/skipping and using almost 100% of my cpu before crashing, any known bugs... infinite loops or something?04:53
Flannelpmratpoison: You'd use the GRUB password option, and then lock on all options you want locked (I believe).  Ubuntu GRUB is identical to any other GRUBs, so any internet howto ought to do it.  I haven't ever done it personally though.04:53

staticwhat is your problem singlesun?04:53
travisatiNTRONIX: well wine normally doesn't adjust your actual resolution just the size of the game on the screen so to see the whole game you would have to change your resolution of x to 1024x76804:53

zelrikriandowhich depot jfkdsljio?05:00
Flannelrpj8: a rolling release is the exact opposite.  Versions come and go as they are updated upstream.  The benefit (and drawback) is that you're always running new software, and you can't guarantee all the software versions will play nice with one another05:01
pmratpoisonjrib: thnx! :)05:01
silent_does amarok have difficulty loading musical content in kde? it's... I'm not quite sure what it's doing.. it hangs occasionally in gnome05:01
Tygirfragged2: what are the recommened plugins?05:01
rpj8Flannel: I see. So is this identical to 'bleeding edge' ?05:01
umoptravisat, Yes, but I asked where to begin troubleshooting, you helped me with that, now I'm past that point, but lets not argue about that ;)05:02
silent_Flannel: even 'stable' software misbehaves05:02
fragged2silent_: but stable software has been bugtested before it becomes stable05:02
Flannelrpj8: Not necessarily.  Bleeding edge would be one form of a rolling release.  Rolling release can be limited to stable software (such as debian testing, as opposed to unstable)05:02
fragged2Tygir: not entirely sure, I barely use Ubuntu05:02

voiceis there anything i can do to fix it?05:04
Sir_FawnpugI use gentoo when I want to get the performance benefits related to setting compile-time options for all of my programs, ubuntu when I want a quick installation05:05
dimedohi again. i have a problem: my System>Quit menu in Gnome doesn't show options for reboot and shutdown anymore. please help me recover that05:05
fragged2silent_: you have to compile everything from sources, which is kind of a pain but it means that you get everything the way you want it, and understand whats going on under the hood of your system more so than most other distributions. The biggest benifit IMO is a better community, there are less stupid people than what there are on other distributions (mostly because you have to /manually/ install your system which many are incapable of doing)05:05
silent_Sir_Fawnpug: I started out CLI in debian... Ubuntu seemed like the next logical step... never really that curious about other distributions, as ubuntu does everything I need, but I might dabble a bit05:05

rainwalkerMarko_Vojvodic: it's easiest if ubuntu was installed first, but I know there are ways05:45
victor__Mark: i suggest you to install virtualbox05:45
Sir_FawnpugMarko_Vojvodic, Ubuntu dual boots even to vista pretty easily05:45
maxownzMarko_Vojvodic: my roommate dual boots xp and ubuntu gutsy just fine. he just followed tutorials online.05:45
rainwalkerhanasakiRemote: type "about:plugins" in the address bar in firefox, is flash player listed?05:46
cirkitmake a symlink to your firefox plugins directory so that flash plugin points to firefox plugins05:46
Marko_VojvodicYes, but, i am totaly new in linux world, i don't know, how to do it, so, the main thing is, to instal ubuntu first, on empty hard discs?05:46
Sir_FawnpugI have to disagree with rainwalker though, I think it's better to do vista second because windows never usually asks you if you want to leave the boot loader alone and clobbers it05:46
maxownzMarko_Vojvodic: i have another pc with vista on it and it crashes all the time, too. is there anything specific you've pinpointed causing the crashes?05:47

Marko_VojvodicUBUNTU FIRST???05:47
Marko_VojvodicIs that last bid:-)05:47
rainwalkerhanasakiRemote: weird...well you could still try installing it from adobe's site05:48
Sir_Fawnpugrainwalker, if ubuntu is first, you'd hae to make a second pass for the installation to reinstall grub05:48

cirkitwhy bother with vista? its terrible05:49

cirkitjust install Ubuntu05:49
rainwalker(11:50:34 PM) Sir_Fawnpug: I have to disagree with rainwalker though, I think it's better to do vista second because windows never usually asks you if you want to leave the boot loader alone and clobbers it05:49
spoonVista will clobber your bootloader05:49
Sir_Fawnpugrainwalker, hmm, I guess I did say that, I guess you couldn't have known what I meant if I mistyped it. Whoops, sorry.05:49
cirkitit doesn't matter if vista or ubuntu get installed first05:49

Dr_willisIndyGunFreak,  by the 4th time he learned to rerun his envy tool :)06:47
IndyGunFreakAloha: should be.. but you should be able to get flash installed w/ Gutsy if you want to06:47
IndyGunFreakDr_willis: lol06:47

AlohaIndyGunFreak, im showing people the livecd06:48
Sakkath_does the install cd have fat32 write?06:48
Sakkath_apparently this external hdd is ntfs06:48
IndyGunFreakAloha: hmm, well, you can try downloading and installign it on the live CD....06:48
sixstormi dont get to use linux too terribly often, school is all about humping Gates' leg06:48
rob1975aui guess with the vid card then im better sticking with the driver i get from Restricted Drivers Manager?06:48
IndyGunFreak!flashissue | Aloha there's a deb file linked on this thread06:48
ubotuAloha there's a deb file linked on this thread: The Flash plugin installation is currently broken. This is due to Adobe changing the tar file that the package downloads. Fixes have landed in -proposed for testing, but most most users are advised to wait until packages are approved and released in -updates.06:48
IndyGunFreakwell, there was.06:48
AlohaIndyGunFreak, where does ubuntu store installed programs on livecd? RAMdisk?06:49
IndyGunFreakAloha: are you on the live CD now?...06:49
IndyGunFreakAloha: yes, you'd have to reinstall it everytime you boot the live CD06:49
sixstormanybody else in college right now?  if so, do you have a linux lab?06:49
AlohaIndyGunFreak, no, im just trying to start an advocacy campaign using it06:49
AlohaIndyGunFreak, it sucks that it can't go to youtube "out of the box"06:50
IndyGunFreakAloha: i see, well, you can download the source from Adobe.com and install it, its a fairly small program(less than 2mb i do believe), doesn't require compiling, etc...06:50
IndyGunFreakAloha: well, its not ubuntu's fault..06:50
AlohaIndyGunFreak, i know :)06:50
IndyGunFreakbut anyways, it should be fixed in Hardy.. so they say06:50
IndyGunFreakwho knows, they might even see fit to fix it in Gutsy06:51
IndyGunFreaki don't keep live Cds handy, but i'm guessing you could install it from adobe.com w/ little to no effort.06:52
shayanHi all, does anyone know how can I double pipe two processes for the stdin of one to be the stdout of the other and vice versa?06:53
Dr_willisshayan,  you mean merge the outputs of 2 processes into the input of a 3rd?  Hmmm....06:53
akhileshshyan: named pipes ?06:53
AlohaIndyGunFreak, yeah its pretty easy. but if im demoing it to a windows user they're like "you have to do THAT just to get to youtube?"06:54
akhileshI mean using fifos ?06:54
talcitejoin #stepmania06:54
IndyGunFreakAloha: well, then they've probably been brainwashed by microsoft anywyas, and wouldn';t try Linux to begin with06:54
spiker611how can I figure out which x display (i.e :1) gdm is using for a user?06:54
shayanDr_willis, no I want two processes to conversat06:54
akhileshshyan: Create two fifos.  proc1 < fifo1 >fifo2        and      proc2 < fifo2 > fifo106:55
sixstormUbuntu needs to work more on the "out of the box" stuff06:55
AlohaIndyGunFreak, thats why i'm targeting them in my advocacy campaign. i'm trying to rebrainwash them with ubuntu06:55
bardyrAloha, flash isnt installed in a default windows install06:55
shayanakhilesh, something like  a| b and b| a06:55
astro76Aloha: I'm pretty sure windows doesn't come with flash by default06:55
akhileshshyan: would that work ?06:55
sixstormwindows does not come with flash installed06:55
Alohathen sweet06:55
astro76Aloha: usually OEMs install it, but so does Dell's Ubuntu machines06:55
IndyGunFreakAloha: this si true, you still have to install flash on Windows, but its made easy by using the plugin installer on Firefox and IE...06:56
shayanakhilesh, no that won't work06:56
IndyGunFreakif adobe hadn't screwed things up, youc ould install it just as easily on Ubuntu06:56
codenameI need some help06:56
akhileshshyan: whats the error ?06:56
codenamehow would i get my desktop looking like this http://opeth115.deviantart.com/art/Linux-Dec-24-7290087906:56
IndyGunFreakcodename: try "/join #psychiatrists"06:56
sixstormAloha:  so i guess you don't use the installer in Firefox to install flash?06:56
spiker611Is there a way to list X displays in use?06:56
shayanakhilesh, when the file is empty the first one reports an EOF06:56

IndyGunFreakJxmlT_87: what sound card, and has it worked before?06:58
WorkingOnWisehas anyone compared Google Desktop to Tracker to be able to fairly decide which they like better?06:58
IndyGunFreakcodename: well, you can start at http://www.gnome-look.org06:59
codenameFor the MetaCity stuff how do i install it06:59
akhileshshayan: In my case proc1 blocks till the second process feeds fifo1.06:59

shayanHi all, does anyone know how can I double pipe two processes for the stdin of one to be the stdout of the other and vice versa?06:59
IndyGunFreakJxmlT_87: what type of sound device do you have06:59
=== Ashfire is now known as Ashfire908
JxmlT_87IndyGun: ATI Technologies Inc SB450 HDA Audio. It worked yesterday for a little bit then I had to an entire reinstall and now its not working.07:00
nano"udevd" is simply responsible for controlling what comes in and out of /dev directorY?07:00
astro76shayan: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Named_pipe07:00
nanois that correct?07:00
c0mp13371331337WorkingOnWise - I'm not a fan of Tracker to be honest, seems a little glitchy on my system.  Tells me it found more results than it shows me....  Quirky stuff like that.07:00

WorkingOnWisec0mp13371331337: what do use for local search?07:02
c0mp13371331337Command line usually works best for me.  If I could figure out what's wrong with tracker, or if google desktop proved to be better, I'd do either of those.  But for now, searching via command line is how I usually do it.07:03

IndyGunFreakwell, he at least knows some english.07:04
IndyGunFreakunderwatercow: everyone with sense doesn't07:04
astro76underwatercow: it's a horrible irc client07:04
c0mp13371331337underwatercow-  Yup, I do.07:04
WorkingOnWisec0mp13371331337: i lived off GD in Windows, but Tracker has proven to faster to index, and much more accurate with the results....was wondering if I was alone in this experience.07:05
IndyGunFreakc0mp13371331337: why?...07:05
WorkingOnWiseunderwatercow: me too07:05
IndyGunFreakpidgin is a great IM client, but its severely lacking as an IRC clientr07:05
JxmlT_87IndyGun: ATI Technologies Inc SB450 HDA Audio. It worked yesterday for a little bit then I had to an entire reinstall and now its not working.07:05
underwatercowI have never really had a reason to use it as an IRC client, but I thought it would be interesting to ask07:05
IndyGunFreakJxmlT_87: if you're going to address me, prefix your statement with my name, i don't read the channel just waiting for responses....07:05
BruceLeroyWhat's goodie good?07:05
c0mp13371331337IndyGunFreak-  Not for IRC, but I use it for google talk, AIM, and Yahoo IMs.07:05
IndyGunFreakJxmlT_87: i'm not really sure about that sound device.. how does lspci identify it?07:06
underwatercowI guess I wasn't clear, I didn't mean to chat in general, I meant to chat in here specifically07:06
WorkingOnWiseI use Pidgin for everything text chat...07:06
IndyGunFreakc0mp13371331337: like i said, its a great IM client, but its a crappy irc client07:06
underwatercowI wish it would get webcam support07:06
JxmlT_87IndyGunFreak: as my audio device07:07
sixstormi use pidgin for windows07:07
IndyGunFreakJxmlT_87: yes,07:07
IndyGunFreakunderwatercow: well, why can't you get webcam support, there's a few out there that supposedly work(i say supposedly, because i have no experience w/ them)07:07

underwatercowIndyGunFreak: key words?07:09

IndyGunFreakcodename: its a theme, for crying out loud, i feel like i'm speaking a foriegn language07:13
IndyGunFreakto make it look exactly like that, you're going to have to experiment, and figure out what themes he used07:14
Dr_willisIndyGunFreak,  i dont either. :) and i forget what gOS was using.07:14
* tigran lol @ IndyGunFreak07:14
sixstormawn isn't all that great IMO07:14

* tigran how do you scream with writting?07:31
sixstormnever tried gentoo07:31
Borecord---> burn imagen ---> find the file ---> burn07:31
tigranHmm.. So back to my question: First off does this make sense http://rafb.net/p/OBJkbB10.html Ad Second, how can I increase AGP memory (not with BIOS, don't have that option).07:32
IndyGunFreakbo:  what happens when you reboot and have the cd in the drive?07:32
Austin_Gentoo is pretty good.07:32
sixstormi read the installation manual . . .07:32
Austin_infact, I prefer it over what is the newest, fiesty fawn?07:32
Bonothing. nero only burn 10 % of he file07:32
M-Nagatoso, does anyone know how to stop linux from renaming japanese filenames on startup? :?07:33
Austin_I'd rather use my dual boot space on something that runs smoothly and doesn't collapse like a grandmother having a heart attack,07:33
IndyGunFreakBo:  ok, that seems like either a hardware issue, or an issue w/ nero.07:33
sixstormi have XP, Vista and Ubuntu 7.10 on my workstation07:33
Bookay. i will try on my other computer later to day.07:33
shindahey guys, anyone know of any file recovery apps?07:33
sixstormVista on the HTPC and Vista on my laptop07:33

IndyGunFreakBo:  http://www.petri.co.il/how_to_write_iso_files_to_cd.htm07:34
IndyGunFreakbo:  and remember, burn them SLOW.. 2-4x is best07:34
IndyGunFreakbo:  if that doesn't work, i would probably try another mirror.07:34
maxownzsixstorm: do you have a lot of trouble with vista crashing?07:34
Bookay.  i wil try thx for you time07:34
Austin_That was the funniest thing i;ve read all day.07:34
sixstormmaxownz:  no, not compared to it's release last year and the second chance i gave it last summer07:35
ThJI've got a Ricoh R5C843 memory card reader built into my HP Compaq 8510w laptop but it doesn't work in Ubuntu Gutsy. It is detected and assigned as "mmc0" by the kernel, but no device nodes are created, nor are any cards inserted made visible in /proc/partitions, nor does it work to make device nodes manually, nor does any of the tips I found on Google work. Help?07:35
Austin_I like the older Ubuntu releases better.07:36
sixstormhas anyone ever made a linux email server and used their own domain name?07:36
Austin_the newer ones are far more glitched, and don't have as much support07:36
maxownzsixstorm:  i'm almost ready to give up on it. it'll crash out of nowhere, mostly when i'm trying to dump files on it... it's by far the most frustrating OS i've ever had to deal with07:36
tigranAustin_: Lol...that link. It took me 10 seconds to figure it out.07:36
underwatercowAustin_: I think it only took me about 5-15 mins to network linux and windows together, lol07:36
tigranLinux just picks itup07:36
Austin_I am 13 years old07:36

Austin_which makes me the youngest one in here.07:37
sixstormmaxownz:  it used to crash on me like crazy, but now after i update everything it works just fine07:37
IndyGunFreakah ok.07:37
tigranThe guys just an idio...wrong word, MS user07:37
sixstormmaxownz:  gaming on Vista is a different story07:37
underwatercowIndyGunFreak: I can't even remember now what I did... but I had to use smbpasswd for something07:37
maxownzhaha it seems like AFTER i install the updates it becomes unstable. i've almost considered re-installing it AGAIN and just leaving it without any updates07:37
IndyGunFreakmaxownz: having probs w/ vista, or with Ubuntu?07:37
maxownzjust vista (wrong channel i know)07:38
IndyGunFreakoh ok... i've got no experience w/ vista, ut what i read isn't good.07:38
bullgard4Can you recommend a tutorial for 'Tracker Search'?07:38
tigranAGP memory, anyone know how to increase it?07:38
ThJGrah, I hate it when some obscure piece of hardware fails and nobody knows how to make it work.07:38
IndyGunFreaktigran: i'm almost positive thast something in the bios07:38
Austin_I use vista for things like BSOD, and then I use gentoo for being alive and living07:38
yommI didn't realise this was the Vista Channel ...07:38
Kiragood day07:38
sixstormvista is ok, it's a whole hell of a lot better than it was last year07:39
tigranIndyGunFreak: Me too, like 100% sure. But..what if I don't have that in my BIOS, but it does have an AGP and its integrated.07:39
IndyGunFreakyomm: its not. uust about 2-3am, things kidna go on the low cool in here.07:39
sixstormvista will never see the light of day in the business world07:39
KiraI have just installed 7.10 on my self-assembled desktop07:39

IndyGunFreakyou were begging to be banned you moron07:43
hansinI just did a minimal/command line only install of 7.10 of a dell laptop.  I did the text-based installer (have done plenty of times).  It identified the network controllers as eth0 (wired) and eth1 (wireless).  I chose to use the eth0/wired interface as default because I need to get the wireless working.07:43
tigranRun mice, run07:43
jack-desktophow do i make my usb drive not read-only?07:43
hansinAnyway, I have no networking after install.07:43
tigranhansin: wireless or wired07:44

Austin_I went away to get a glass of milk, and I come back to see what my cousin did, and, my goodness.07:44
kahrytanjack-desktop->  usb external hard drive?07:44
jack-desktopkahrytan, no, it's a usb flash drive, sorry07:45
Austin_and I always tell him enough of the terroristic jokes.07:45
speeddemon8803Austin, please refrain from profanity in this room...no exception...dont care if its you, your cousin, brother...its your pc, please lets be wise and lock screen while were gone :)07:45

nemilar!offtopic | Austin_07:46
ubotuAustin_: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, #ubuntu+1 supports the development version of Ubuntu and #ubuntu-offtopic is for random chatter. Welcome!07:46
ThJterroristic, is that a word?07:46
hansinAny command line utility I can run to set up networking again?  What it is saying when I try to bring up the network, that it doesn't know about eth0.  So it reads my interface file, but can't find eth1 (I screwed up, wired is eth1).07:46
* WorkingOnWise has identified %N plonker: %P.07:46
Austin_and he makes all the jokes and things, and it's just plain terrible.07:46
AmaranthAustin_: Then you should be glad he didn't install Clippy07:46
ThJHas anybody here messed with getting built-in memory card reders to work in Gutsy?07:46
hansinSo eth1 has an entry in interfaces.  Forget I even mention eth0.07:46
Austin_clippy: how may I screw you today?07:46
speeddemon8803yes, thj...mine worked without any configuring07:46
jfkdsljioi did apt-get remove gnome, but then i couldnt log in07:47
ThJIt pops the icons up on the desktop for you?07:47
Austin_Oh wait, gutsy gibbon was the latest correct?07:47
AmaranthThJ: I don't think there is anything to configure07:47
tigranThJ: mine doesn't work either.07:47
tigranThJ: built-in sd card reader07:47
kahrytanAustin_->  Hardy Haron ALpha 307:47
ThJtigran: yes07:47
AmaranthThJ: Either it just works or there isn't a driver available for your reader.07:47
tigranThJ: Mine never worked07:47
nemilaractually alpha4 just came out07:47
Austin_What is with these odd names?07:47
Amaranthkahrytan: Alpha 407:47
ThJtigran: Ricoh07:47
ubotuUbuntu is a complete Linux-based operating system, freely available with both community and professional support. It is developed by a large community and we invite you to participate too! - Also see http://www.ubuntu.com07:47
AmaranthAustin_: It's fun07:47
Austin_BRB: screen locked.07:47
kahrytanAmaranth->  they move so fast07:48
Gninefor all intended purposes, alpha 4 is not recommended07:48
ubotuA higher version number does not mean that it's better. Especially with packages such as the linux kernel. The packages in the Ubuntu repositories are stable and will work fine. You should have a better reason than "newer" when considering compiling from source or using 3rd party repos.07:48
ThJAmaranth: Well, the thing is, it's detected.07:48
tigranThJ: Ricoh?07:48
ThJAmaranth: And it says like "mmc0" and stuff in dmesg.07:48
AmaranthThJ: Does it say anything new when you stick a card in?07:48
=== grekkos_ is now known as grekkos
AmaranthThJ: It's possible the driver is broken too07:48
AmaranthThJ: Either way you probably can't fix it07:49
speeddemon8803If you are using a development machine i.e. one you will be using for things such as work..etc...I HIGHLY recommend NOT using Hard Heron right now....07:49
ThJAmaranth: There were some setpci hacks on Google, and tips of loading some extra modules.07:49
Gninehardy heron07:49
ThJAmaranth: Of course, none of them worked. There's also talk that kernel .24 fixes it07:49
AmaranthThJ: That sounds more likely07:49
speeddemon8803Typo gnine thanks :)07:49
IndyGunFreakall right, gotta bounce all.. Have a good evening07:49
speeddemon8803didnt catch it but thanks07:49
hansinDoes anyone know what file your networking interfaces are defined (not /etc/network/interfaces, but where the OS says, hey eth0 = your wireless card and eth1 = wired ethernet)?  Thanks.07:49
AmaranthThJ: Have to wait until April to get 2.6.24 in a supported release07:50
Amaranthhansin: that's in the udev configuration07:50
ThJAmaranth: No new info when inserting a card. There is one problem though, it disables IRQ 19 after a while, same IRQ as the reader has.07:50
* Gnine notes speeddemon8803 07:50
ThJAmaranth: Gives a stack trace and then disables, based on "nobody cares" (it actually says this in dmesg).07:50
hansinAmaranth: Thanks.07:50
Austin_This is boo-rang, and I'm going to XKCD.07:51
Amaranthhansin: I know the filename has 'persistent-net' in it and that it's in /etc/udev.d07:51
tigranThJ: Can you paste it, I wanna see it haha07:51
ThJAmaranth: Is there a way I could compile a "stock" 2.6.24 kernel? I've compiled kernels before but always customized them. How do you compile an Ubuntu-friendly one with the proper config flags?07:51
* Gnine closes door after austin07:51
kahrytanAmaranth->  austin?07:51
ThJtigran: 282.242126] irq 19: nobody cared (try booting with the "irqpoll" option)07:51
Amaranthkahrytan: yeah07:51
AmaranthThJ: That's actually really hard07:52
* kahrytan gives 3 cheers for Amaranth 07:52
ThJtigran: [  282.242408] Disabling IRQ #1907:52
AmaranthThJ: It'd be easier to just snag the kernel and related packages from hardy07:52
ThJAmaranth: Or switch to Hardy.07:52
AmaranthThJ: That might be a bit much unless you enjoy things not working properly07:52
AmaranthThJ: Like having nautilus crash during a file transfer07:52
speeddemon8803Jeez xubuntu for being small is taking a long time to download :/07:53
AmaranthGnine: We've got gio-enabled nautilus :)07:53
ThJAmaranth: Won't Hardy packages give me problems if I try to install them?07:53
Thurin1speeddemon8803: Xubuntu is not 'small' it is light, the ISO file is the same size as Ubuntu roughly 600 some megs.07:53
Amaranthspeeddemon8803: xubuntu isn't smaller, just different07:53
bod_speeddemon8803, taking your name into account, that statement is ironic in more then 1 way07:53
kahrytanThJ->  Yes, .. there will07:53
AmaranthThJ: The kernel shouldn't. Worst case you just boot the gutsy kernel07:53
Gninehave not noticed yet , Amaranth07:53
kahrytanThJ->  Yes, .. they will07:53
* Gnine got speedy connection07:53
Thurin1Xubuntu is basically Ubuntu with XFCE on top that's the only real difference - everything else is identical, almost.07:54
AmaranthThJ: The only possible problem is nvidia and fglrx drivers07:54
speeddemon8803dang, that comment sure backfired :)07:54
ThJI have had some ugly experiences with it before. As Amaranth says though, the kernel files don't change much between versions.07:54
* speeddemon8803 keeps trap shut next time07:54
Amaranthxubuntu is not any smaller or lighter than ubuntu, except feature-wise07:54
Amaranthit's just Ubuntu with XFCE instead of GNOME07:54
bod_anyone here , using 7.10 gutsy fancy testing some scripts for me?07:54
hansinYou know what I bet happened, install recognized my wireless as eth0 and wired as eth1.  Then since I need to hand install the broadcom driver, it doesn't see it after install as existing, so my wired now becomes eth0!  Now I just need to modify /etc/network/interfaces entry to eth0.  Off to check my hypothesis...  Thanks.07:55
wersis there a gtk substitute for basket notepads07:55
* RedHeron is using 8.04 Hardy, sorry.07:55
Gninekernel is less than 100k bytes07:55
Amaranthbod_: Scripts for what?07:55
singlesunanyone a pro with fdisk? lol07:55
ThJHm, now to locate kernel files from Hardy.07:55
ThJWhere'd I find the .deb's for that?07:55
bod_Amaranth, making a GDM login screen by editing an original theme,. theres a backup/failsafe/revert script that comes with it,. (free of charge,.,.lol)07:56
externhow can I changee the resolution of my screen in a terminal?07:56
AmaranthThJ: you want linux-image-2.6.24-*-generic, linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.24-*-generic, and (if needed) linux-restricted-modules-2.6.24-*-generic07:56
Gninebod_: that should not be an issue07:56
ThJYeah, I know the format of the file names.07:56
AmaranthThJ: Where * is the ABI version, I believe it's at 507:56
EpicenterIs there a way to make GRUB boot an ISO image on a partition?07:56
