gigamonk`Thanks for your help.00:03
silent_Please go to the appropriate channel for help in your language, or learn english00:03
howlingmadhowiexkcdr0ckz: there must be graphical front ends for bazarr/cvs/subversion available. if you want a distributed versioning software, have a look at git, but i don't know of a graphical front end for it00:03
Gnineouch00:03
soundraygigamonk`: there is a special address range termed 'link-local addresses' (see Wikipedia entry on Private network)00:03
andi5howlingmadhowie, xkcdr0ckz: gitk, git-gui, others00:03

DivineSpectrum_the system is kernel?00:03

GnineDivineSpectrum_ is a funny guy eh?00:04
DivineSpectrum_sorry00:04
silent_Gnine: he doesn't afraid of anything00:04
xkcdr0ckzhowlingmadh: well basically i'm just looking for something like Eclipse/Geany which I can see a history of my source code as it changes. i've never used a CVS app before so i wouldn't know if if CVS is right for me.00:04
gigamonk`I had to manually set DNS--shouldn't I have gotten that from my DHCP server?00:05
gigamonk`Not that it matters much.00:05
gildanope gigamonk` i had to set mine to with the wireless it seems to be wonky that way00:05
silent_In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice they are not.00:05
DivineSpectrum_i like kernel00:05
zootmxkcdr0ckz: Eclipse already has "local history" but you probably want something like Subversion or Mercurial if you want to store them in some structured way00:05
GeezleSorry to re-ask, but I need a hand getting my sound back.  I think I lost it during an update? and didn't notice right away, so I don't know what happened.  I've tried rebuilding ALSA and following the debugging sound problems page with no luck.  I've got an onboard Ensoniq sound device that aplay sees, and all my audio controls are intact.  Don't know what else to try.00:05
andi5xkcdr0ckz: CVS is definitely not right... other than that it is a matter of taste, i guess... except rcs other older ones, of course ;-)00:05
andi5Geezle: i suppose your volume controls are not muted? :)00:06
Geezleandi5: Nope, I wish it was that simple00:06
gildaGeezle, you ran the amixer ?00:07
soundraygigamonk`: just curious: is the camera working?00:07
gigamonk`Okay, now I just have to track down this ctrl-c in Terminal problem.00:07
gigamonk`soundray: no camera on mine. Sorry.00:07
DivineSpectrum_soz the kernel ubuntu 7.10 using?00:07
andi5Geezle: do you have more than one sound device? ... that kicked me a few times, caused by a differing loading order00:07

howlingmadhowieruss: ftp00:36
cosmodadruss: if latter is true, you are either (1) firewalling or (2) not have the server listen to the appropriate address. (e.g., on localhost only)00:36
andi5gilda: i thought the network would work without encryption... if that was true, the routes should also be correct, shoudl not they?00:36
bruenigeHome, you are thinking too windowish as if there is some official looking way of doing stuff, all the OS is is a collection of files, you modify files to change stuff whether that modification is officialized through some charade of a gui or not doesn't affect the legitimacy of the action00:36
gildaalso may want to nano /etc/resolv.conf    and make sure nameserver=RouterIP00:36

venoxhey there... I'm installing ubuntu on a new laptop I've bought. the problem is that the livecd didn't booted correctly (it hangup on the progress bar). then, I fixed that by just using noapic acpi=off irqpoll. although, with acpi disabled, I miss all the battery monitoring features. any ideas on how to fix that?00:37

Hyuukaiis there any way to get irc working in ubuntu?00:59
Hyuukaii mean mirc*00:59
andi5Jangari: what happens when you `mount -v /media/cdrom0`?00:59
mishii need some help here00:59
russhowlingmadhowie what does that mean?00:59
w0ahszby the way can somebody give me the link to download flash player and java ?00:59
w0ahsz.deb file00:59
gildamIrc is a windows based chat program there are many alternative linux programs00:59
w0ahszto install it00:59
Jangarisudo? or should a regular user be able to do it?00:59
w0ahsza ?00:59
LadyNikonmishi: ask your question .. if you already have be patient and someone will answer.01:00
floodingmansionsis splashy safe to install manually?01:00
Jangarisince i have the 'user' option set in fstab01:00
travisatHyuukai: mirc is for windows linux has much better irc clients01:00
gildaall uses IRC but the program itself is windows01:00
howlingmadhowieruss: sometimes i think i'm telepathic :) that means, every time your system enters runlevel2, this script will be performed. it probably starts the firewall01:00
Dark-KnightHmm Soundray first question I asked01:00
venoxsoundray: thanks, I'm taking a look at it01:00
andi5Jangari: try as root first01:00
Hyuukaitell me a good one then, one where i can do a on connect to perform channel joining and loads of neet features :)01:00
howlingmadhowieruss: runlevel 2 is the default runlevel on debian-based systems btw.01:00
Hyuukaiim used to mirc thats all01:00
mishihow do you install awn on 7.0401:00
andi5Hyuukai: maybe xchat01:00
gildaHyuukai, i use xchat myself works fine01:01
russhowlingmadhowie ok, this looks like it could be an educational moment for me. What causes the system to enter runlevel2?01:01
LadyNikonHyuukai: xchat01:01
Jangariandi5: i'll pastebin the error01:01
Jangari!pastebin01:01

Dr_willisI just use xchat. I find all the 'neet features' of mirc - are just useless cruft :)01:01
w0ahszpeople can somebody tell me the link of flashplayer ?01:01
w0ahsza .deb file only to install it can ?01:01
howlingmadhowieruss: booting01:01
HyuukaiOk can i do a on connect ?01:01
travisatI use irssi01:01
Hyuukaiso i can just have it connect to my million channels i want?01:01
rcguzonHello does anybody know transparent proxy for a lan. i followed the tutorials but mine doesnt work?01:01
howlingmadhowieruss: you can also enter a runlevel by typing "sudo init X" where X is the runlevel you want to enter01:01
tunaWhat is the command to see all open ports and the programs that opened them?01:02

tunaswitch: reboot in single-user mode01:02
Jangarii'll also paste my fstab01:02
tunaswitch_: reboot in single-user mode01:02
russhowlingmadhowie so that's kinda weird. I originally had feisty on this machine (it's a Dell laptop that came with it preloaded) and I installed firestarter but then disabled it (since I'm behind a firewall already)01:02
howlingmadhowieruss: some runlevels are standardised across all linux distributions, for example runlevel 0 is shutdown, runlevel 6 is restart01:02
tunaandi5: thanks01:02
d3rrikso if i buy the DVD version is it basically the same has having both the server and desktop cdrom editions? with alot more packages?01:02
Dark-KnightSorry Soundray Topic was clipped so I didn't see the end topic01:02
howlingmadhowieruss: maybe it reads a configuration file and the configuration file got changed when you updated to gutsy? i'm guessing here...01:03
Jangariandi5: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/54657/01:03
Hyuukaiummm whats a really good audio player for ubuntu? maybe one with internet radio and stuff? :S01:03

Jangaridoes rhythmbox support radio?01:03
Dr_willisHyuukai,  check out 'bmpx' - the beep media player01:03
gildaGeezle, did you install the linux-kernel-headers ?01:03
andi5Jangari: does that happen with every cdrom?01:03

Geezleit's a new install so possibly not01:04
andi5Jangari: or is this an audio cd?01:04
Jangariso yes, i suppose01:04
russhowlingmadhowie when I rebooted before, it showed "failed" as the result for firestarter, which was just ok, and I didn't notice after updating - but maybe this fixed it anyway, we'll see. thanks for your help01:04
Hyuukaiah too many! lol01:04
Dr_willisHyuukai,  a lot of the players support the shoutcast.com stuff also.01:04

puffis there any way to figure out what files an app is trying to access?01:06
Dr_willisHyuukai,  check the wine sites for details on tweaking those games.01:06
w0ahszsudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras01:06
unop_puff, lsof01:06
puffAmarok is hanging on startup;  I think it's a deadlock on a file lock or some other resource.01:06
Dr_willis!appdb | Hyuukai01:06
w0ahszthis is the command for installing flashplayer and java?01:06
ubotuHyuukai: The Wine Application DB is a database of applications and help for !Windows programs that run under !WINE: http://appdb.winehq.org01:06
andi5Hyuukai: no, directx is a misconception invented by microsoft and does not run under linux.... at least that is my point of view01:06
manduskihey guys, i'm getting super angry with ubuntu. I bought a new laptop and i can connect to the router via wlan0 and it gives me an ip, but i can't browse the internet01:06
rcguzondoes anybody know transaprent proxy?01:06
rcguzonim using squid, the one with that comes with webmin01:06
w0ahszsudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras --- is this the command for installing flashplayer and java ?01:06
andi5rcguzon: what is wrong about squid?01:06
Jack_Sparrow!webmin01:06
ubotuwebmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system. See !ebox instead.01:06
manduskii have tried googling it but nothing has seemed to help, or maybe i'm not searching right01:06
Hyuukaiim such a noob with linux ive just got the gdesklets package now what :S01:06
gildamanduski, in the network manager make sure to supply the DNS as the router01:06
Jangaritime to reboot01:06
soundraymanduski: does the IP begin with 169?01:07
Dimitreeis there a way to hide join/quit messages in xchat ?01:07
unop_Dimitree, check xchat's options01:07
manduskisoundray, no it begins with 19201:07
Dimitreewell i did but didnt find something like that o-o01:07
rainwalkerw0ahsz: yes, that's the command. you could also do it with add/remove programs01:07
HyuukaiHas anyone used gDesklets?01:07
{Nathan}Ubuntu's installed uses UIDs to mount things, regardless of their device. How can I find teh UID of my devices so it does not matter which device node they are on?01:07
{Nathan}installer*01:08
rainwalkerHyuukai: they're horrible, use screenlets01:08
unop_Dimitree, actually, right click on the channel's tab and uncheck "show part/join messages"01:08
mishiwhats BZR01:08
soundraymanduski: can you access remote sites by their IP adress?01:08

Dimitreeaww this is much much better now :)01:09
=== Jannitax is now known as Jannita
soundraymanduski: in firefox, enter 193.99.144.85 as the URL01:09
HyuukaiYou know on a mac in the middle bottom of screen there is a bar which has apps on it01:09
howlingmadhowiemanduski: that should show you the google startpage01:09

puffIs  there anything that provides a file hierarchy metaphor UI for the ipod?01:09
rainwalkerHyuukai: that's called a dock; look up avant-window-navigator01:09
gildamanduski, if you nano /etc/resolv.conf    does it have nameserver=something ?01:09
DanThirstpuff: i think amarok does, not sure how well it works though01:10
andi5gilda: one minor comment... it should be "nameserver something" :-)01:10
Dimitreetest test sorry :)01:10
manduskigilda, i get "nameserver 192.168.0.1"01:10
gildaah ya andi5  LOL i shoulda checked my own 1st01:10
unop_{Nathan}, disk UUID's are just symlinks to the various devices in /dev -- they are linked in this directory - /dev/disk/by-uuid01:10
gildamanduski, is that your router ip ?01:11
manduskisoundray, i get nothing on firefox01:11
kidemIs there an addon for ubuntu to right click say a file and run as SU01:11
{Nathan}unop_: alright, thanks ^^01:11
manduskigilda, yes01:11
puffDanThirst: Amarok's pretty nice, but I'm looking for a really simple command line interface for when I just want to put an audio file on the machine.01:11
gildamanduski, are you using static ip or dhcp ?01:11
puffBack in a bit.01:11
rainwalkerHyuukai: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=38598101:11
DimitreeDoes WINE eat much resources ?01:11
manduskigilda, dhcp01:11
soundraymanduski: not even an error?01:12
DanThirstgnomad01:12
DanThirstyeah gnomad01:12
unop_Dimitree, it depends on what WINE is running .. there's no fixed answer to that question01:12
Dr_willisDimitree,  compared to what? :)  not a whole lot in most cases01:12
manduskisoundray, the clock thing keeps on going (busy, or thinking)01:12
gildamanduski,  can you ping your router ?01:12
Dimitreei just don't want to mess up my ubuntu :) i'm linux beginner :)01:12
andi5manduski: so can you resolve host names? like with `host google.de` ?01:12
andi5manduski: or .com, whatever you prefer =)01:13
unop_Dimitree, WINE shouldnt really mess up your ubuntu :)01:13
gildawine works fine here Dimitree01:13
manduskiandi5, i can't do anything on the internet...nothing comes up01:13
Dimitreeok thank yuo guys i guess i will try it out :)01:13

gildamanduski, can you ping your router ?01:13
DimitreeSkype for linux simply doesnt do lol01:13
manduski100% packet loss01:14
Jack_SparrowDimitree: There are some tricks to protect your system, like not mapping Z and setting up a second user with limited rights..01:14
manduskigilda, 100% packet loss01:14
gildamanduski, wired or wireless ?01:14
Jack_SparrowDimitree: I use skype beta with video in linux, no complaints01:14
manduskigilda, wireless (internal card that came with laptop)01:14
DimitreeJack_Sparrow, i'm way too noob for that now :) just installed ubuntu :)01:14
gildamanduski    sudo lspci    what is the device ?01:14

gildaDanThirst, you will have to mount ur samba drives via the fstab to ur local machine then use the mount points as the folders within amarok01:17
DanThirstAHHHH fstab01:17
cwgannonany idea what might be going on?01:17
DanThirsti dun like fstab01:17
andi5cwgannon: using wrong sensors?01:17

cheesypiecesanyone know how to install controls for gdesklets?01:18

HyuukaiOk that opened up a text file basically01:19
gmcastilDanThirst: k...so, what are you trying to do?01:20
Jewfro-MacabbiDanThirst, you add an entry for that hdd in fstab - first you do a "sudo fdisk -l" to get the drive name - something like /dev/hda101:20
PeloDanThirst, what FS on that drive, if it is ext3 I can probably copy your a line I have in mine you can edit01:20
rainwalkerPelo: that progrecad thing can't do 3d =(01:20
gmcastilanyone using fetchmail?01:20
Pelorainwalker, realy ?01:20
Jewfro-MacabbiDanThirst, then you add the line entry for it in fstab, something like: /dev/sda1/media/Windowsntfsnoatime,defaults,users,ro,umask=0 0 , for a windows drive01:20
rainwalkerPelo: only the professional version01:20
andi5cwgannon: i usually need to install lm_sensors and run sensors-detect first... but that is just me01:20

bluefoxxwhats the terminal comand for "do this then this"?01:26

Pelorainwalker, I just checked, and you are correct ProgeCAD smart! does not support solids,  well, it's free you can't have everything,   btw , the professionnal version only cost about 500$  much less then autocac01:26
rskbluefoxx:  &&01:26
LjLbluefoxx: a ; b01:26
RaiDeNSo to dual boot all I do is put ubuntu disk inside, install ubuntu and then in boot I will have automatically choice of windows or linux?01:26
andi5bluefoxx: this ; that   or this && that (if that should only run if this succeeded)01:26

gmcastilHas anyone else been able to get fetchmail to run as a daemon?01:37
manduskiandi5, what am i looking for in particular01:37
andi5manduski: an ip address01:37
Jewfro-Macabbigmcastil, sorry couldn't be more helpful01:37
manduskiandi5, inet addr: 192.16.0.13401:37
gmcastilJewfro-Macabbi: np01:37
gmcastilJewfro-Macabbi: i miss some of the simple things in redhat01:37
manduskiandi5, sorry, 192.168.0.13401:37
dawizstill same error01:38
LjLdawiz: yes but tell me what the command i gave you *says*01:38
andi5manduski: did you enter that address or did your router assign it with dhcp?01:38
unop__gmcastil, you should pay attention to the warning message you get when trying to start the daemon -- fetchmail needs to be configured to monitor an email address/server to work otherwise running it is pointless01:38
helpmewell does someone know how to  get my new ubuntu to stay on the web with the wireless adapter coz it keeps on disconnecting and then i need to un plug and plug the wireless adapter to get the connection back for a minute :)01:38
manduskiandi5, my router gave it to me01:38
dawiznothing01:38
manduskiandi5, via dhcp01:38
gmcastilunop__: yeah, i know - but doesn't it get those from the user's .fetchmailrc?01:38
LjLdawiz: are you sure?   sudo sh -c 'echo $PATH'01:39
evenanti've been having trouble getting an ems usb adapter to work; it's not the problem that i keep finding in web searches, though. it plain doesn't show up (i don't get a js0 device)01:39
andi5manduski: does `route -n` contain a default gateway?  it should be the last line and have UG as Flags01:39
Pelohelpme, it's been mentionned before, I suggest you check in the forum www.ubuntuforums.org I'm sure there is a solution there01:39
gmcastilunop__: the init script for fetchmail refers to /etc/fetchmailrc - this isn't mentioned in the man page anywhere and i've never seen it before01:39
unop__gmcastil, i should assume that's only read if the user invokes fetchmail for private use - it'd be scary/stupid to think a daemon reads a user's configuration file01:39
dawizshould i be typing in in the pastebin thing?01:40
andi5manduski: oh, actually that is not strict necessary at this point of time... when pings fail we may ping a wrong ip01:40
evenantthe patches and fixes i see seem to be designed for older builds .. this sound any familiar to someone?01:40
LjLdawiz: it should be just one line, so no01:40
helpmewell i did i didnt find nothing :S01:40
gmcastilunop__: uh...i was pretty sure that fetchmail ran and used the user's conf file01:40
manduskiandi5, so....?01:40
unop__gmcastil, if that's true - then fetchmail is stupid01:40
gmcastilunop__: where else would i put the user's configu information?01:40
andi5manduski: does the output contain a default gw?01:40
gmcastilunop__: have you ever used fetchmail?01:40
=== Varka_ is now known as Varka
unop__gmcastil, no, i've never run fetchmail01:40
helpmeomg xD01:41
dawizthats what it returned01:41
* gmcastil can't believe he's the only one in this channel that uses fetchmail01:41
manduskiandi5, there is a lot of numbers, which one am i looking at?01:41
andi5manduski: the router column01:41
manduskithere's destination, gateway, genmask, flags, metric, ref, use, interface01:41
andi5oh... gateway then01:41
unop__gmcastil, but from what i understand of fetchmail - it can run in two ways - as a daemon or a single instance process -- and both modes use different configuration files01:42
errpastWhen I test my sound card, I just get a little soft beep.01:42
andi5manduski: sorry, i run a localized ubuntu here, so i retranslated it incorrectly01:42

Mirado_tswhey, does anybody here have experiance with dualbooting xp 64bit with grub?02:15
LjLPaper: well, if you want APT to build from source, it's easy enough really. « sudo apt-get build-dep <package> ; apt-get --build source <package> ; sudo dpkg -i <packagename.deb> »02:15
rbrtwI did apt-get install --reinstall compiz-core and still no /etc/xdg/compiz/compiz-manager.ubuntu02:15
Jack_SparrowGeezle: Here is the best sound help page I can find..  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingSoundProblems02:15
brueniggigamonkey, I don't know, I don't use the network settings app, I can be sure that the network settings app simply front ends for it though and so if you are having problems, it is always good to see if it is the front ends fault or not02:15
dawizafter all the #'s ?02:15
LjLPaper: but compiling from source means that you need all the (pretty large, usually) library headers installed that the package needs, aside from the fact that, well, you need to wait for it to compile. most users don't want that, they have no reason to.02:15
andi5rbrtw: why do you think it should be there?02:16

LjL!virus > zetheroo    (zetheroo, see the private message from Ubotu)02:21
DimitreeIs it possible to catch a Virus on Ubuntu ? or spyware ? or trojan ? like in windows ?02:21
Jack_Sparrowzetheroo: None needed02:21
Mirado_tswsingle drive, windows in first part its a sata drive02:21
tarvidMirado_tsw, it sounds like grub wasn't installed02:21
zcat[1]Mirado_tsw: normally, dual-boot will be automatic ..02:21
Mirado_tswgrub works02:21
cdubyaJewfro-Macabbi, it will work with the m4a in the statement?02:21
tarvidMirado_tsw, do you get a grub prompt when restarting?02:21
bruenigDimitree, installing debs especially ones not in the repositories opens you up for that02:22
Mirado_tswyes02:22
gildaDimitree, if you install wine you can catch windows viruses in that02:22
zetherooI need one for the purpose of scanning portable drives which come from Windows machines02:22
dawizok edited02:22
Mirado_tswbut when i boot xp it says starting xp... then just sits there02:22
rbrtwoh well, here goes nothing02:22
tarvidMirado_tsw, does Windows or Other OS show up in the menu?02:22
Mirado_tswyes02:22
dawiznow just do apt-get uninstall scanlogd?02:22
Jewfro-Macabbicdubya, tweak as needed02:22
Dimitreegilda, will the virus cose harm outside wine ?02:22
zcat[1]zetheroo: sudo apt-get install clamav avscan02:22
dawizLjL*02:22
LjLdawiz: yes try that02:22
Jewfro-Macabbicdubya, make it executable and run02:22
dawizok02:22
cdubyaJewfro-Macabbi, so just change the file extension to .m4p, make it executable, and then run?02:23
gigamonkeybruenig: do you happen to know  where it would live?02:23
tarvidMirado_tsw, but it will boot into Linux if you select one of the Linux kernels?02:23
brueniggigamonkey, no clue02:23
Mirado_tswyes02:23
gildaDimitree, no it is attacking the windows only files aka the wine files02:23
zetheroodoes clamav have a gui?02:23
gigamonkeyNo worries. I'll find it.02:23
Mirado_tswit boots linux just fine02:23
Jewfro-Macabbicdubya, that is an audo file yes? I assume that's what your trying to do? t02:23
Jack_SparrowDimitree: If you have mapped root to Z drive and the user you use to run programs with wine has that access, there are dangers..  It is documented and you can ask in winehq02:23
cdubyaok. thanks02:23
Dimitreegilda, thats fine by me lool .... ;) thank you02:23
LjL!info clamtk > zetheroo02:23
kenalexwow ubuntu is crazy (in a good way that is :)) .the ubuntu package installer is integrated in firefox to download pluggins like flash player02:23
LjLzetheroo: try « apt-cache rdepends clamav »02:23
dawizerrr remove not uninstall heh? LjL*02:24
cdubyaJewfro-Macabbi, yeah, they're audio files02:24
Dimitreeok Jack_Sparrow  ! Thank you02:24
LjLdawiz: ah well yes02:24
Jewfro-Macabbicdubya, it may not work - but it was worth a shot - there's a graphical program for doing it also soundconverter02:24
LjLdawiz: and add sudo too02:24
Jack_Sparrownp02:24
cdubyaok02:24
tarvidMirado_tsw, this will be unpleasant to fix, you could save off the boot loader and partition tables with dd, repair windows, then copy the boot loader back02:24
cdubyaSoundConverter handles m4p files?02:24
zcat[1]Dimitree: If you can even get a virus to run in wine (deliberately) you'll be doing quite well.. once it's running, it has access to whatever files wine does... AFAIK the default setting has your home directory as a virtual drive, so it could in theory damage any file in your home directory..02:25
Jewfro-Macabbicdubya, not sure I just did an aptitude search for soundconverter - doesn't list all the formats it handles02:25
cdubyaok, thanks02:25
dawizright02:25
tarvidMirado_tsw, you might try smart boot manager02:25
dawizwas just being overly sure02:25
gildain theory zcat[1]  but most of ur files in your home drive will not affect your linux install if its a windows specific virus = but u could pass the files along with the infection to a windows user02:26
Mirado_tswtarvid: thats gibberish to me (this is my first time trying to use something other than windows)02:26
capicuhey he's everyone doing...I've got a quick question hoping someone can point men in the right direction02:26
dawizsorry if it seems im asking stupid questions02:26

Mirado_tswsmart boot manager? as an alternative to grub?02:26
Dimitreezcat[1], O___O nuuuuu not antivirus programs again :[02:26
* Dimitree crys02:26
dawizagreed gilda02:26
tarvidMirado_tsw, http://sourceforge.net/projects/btmgr/02:26
Mirado_tswthx02:27
krossover#list02:27
dawizdont need scanlogd really anywaydo i?02:27
Jack_SparrowMirado_tsw: that is usually a no brainer of a dual boot... did you change where it wrote grub?02:27
capicuI hooked up my 32 inch monitor to my computer,and have a ati x1300 video card. I can only get 800x600 resolution ..and wanted to see if someone can help me how to get 1024x76802:27
zcat[1]gilda: if you get a windows virus that overwrites files with garbage.. and it has write access to ~ through H: in wine, I'd expect that it can therefore overwrite important files in your home dir..02:27
ubuntuI'm on the livecd in irssi on vt2 now, I can't get X to start to install ubuntu on this system. I have intel integrated graphics 82845G/GL graphics02:27
dawizfirestarter should find portscans02:27
tanathi have a weird problem02:28
ubuntuI have some crappy emachine, with 2ghz, and 512 megs of ram02:28
tanathi have an executable, but every time i try to run it it says it's not there02:28
zcat[1]gilda: all highly theoretical though, generally viruses use weird api's and totally fail to run at all in wine02:28
Mirado_tswjacksparrow: no02:28
Jack_SparrowMirado_tsw: go to a terminal gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst  and post it to the pastebin.. NOT in the channel, then give us the link.02:28
tarvidMirado_tsw, is that Vista?02:28
gildazcat[1], quite possibly but ive never encountered it when attracting virii thru wine - but theres bound to be something that could be painful02:28
robdigtanath: type ./executablename02:28
manduskiandi502:28
Mirado_tswtarvid : no xp 64bit02:28
tanathi can change it's properties, list it, etc., but whenever i try to run it it says not found02:28
manduskiandi5, did you take a look at the pasted text?02:29
tarvidthat helps02:29
tanathrobdig, uh, yeah, that's what i was doing02:29
capicuoh i forgot, also i tried to configure the tv monitor, but it only labels it as generic, and since it's a tv set i doubt that there are drivers for it. How can i configure so i have bigger resolution?02:29
tanathrobdig, even tried with the path02:29
ubuntuThe only thing I have in Xorg.0.log is WW V_BIOS bad checksum,02:29
gigamonkeygilda: it's routing fine as long as I can connect which I can do when the access point is open or set up with a WPA personal passphrase with no spaces in it.02:29
tanatheven used tab completion so i know it's there02:29
robdigtanath: is it executable?02:29
alinonwhat's the command to bring up the gui for wine?02:29
tanathrobdig, yep02:29
gigamonkeybruenig's theory is that Network Settings is dorking up the passphrase somehow.02:29
silent_does ubuntu have a serious issue with copying files larger than 4gb?02:29
gigamonkeyI'm checking out that theory now.02:29
tanathrobdig, chmod +x worked on it fine, but i can't execute it 'cause it says it's not there02:29
Jack_SparrowMirado_tsw: go to a terminal sudo fdisk -l             last letter is L would also be helpful to see in the pastebin.02:29
Jewfro-Macabbisilent_, not in my experience02:30
tanathi've never seen this before02:30
tarvidMirado_tsw, then I would assume you would survive a Linux reload02:30
dusty_Does anyone have any experience in configuring ATI Radeon dual screen setup and Compiz fusion?02:30
dusty_jack#02:30
dawizapt-get seems to be working again02:30
dusty_Jack_Sparrow: can u help me now?02:30
silent_Jewfro-Macabbi: I can transfer exactly 4.0GB before nautilus crashes02:30
dawizthanks LjL*02:30
robdigtanath: does sound wierd. type 'file nameofexecutable' and see if it can identify what it is (without the quotes)02:30
Jack_Sparrowdusty_: game is still on02:30
larson9999a coworker asks me at least once a week if i'm sure i don't have any viruses.  can't believe i don't need av software.02:30
zcat[1]silent_: what filesystem?02:30
Mirado_tswjacksparrow : it gave me an error with the first one02:31
dusty_can u at least give me a direction? :)02:31
dawizshould i try to reinstall scanlogd again? LjL*02:31
Jewfro-Macabbisilent_, try from command cp filename /location/path02:31
dawizlol02:31
LjLdawiz: do you need it?02:31
silent_zcat[1]: ext3 to fat02:31
dawizum02:31
Jewfro-Macabbisilent_, cp -r for directories02:31
=== ubuntu is now known as helpme
Mirado_tswand tarvid: its a fresh install, so i have nothing to lose02:31
silent_zcat[1]: also tried a network transfer to my server ext3 to smbfs02:31
zcat[1]silent_: well.. afaik fat has issues with files bigger than 4G02:31
Jewfro-Macabbisilent_, sorry cp filename /location/path/filename02:31
tanathrobdig, ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), not stripped02:31
dawizshouldnt firestarter or guard dog detect portscans?02:31
dawizLjL*02:31
LjLno idea02:31
dawizhmmm02:31
Jack_SparrowMirado_tsw: Are you running Ubuntu?02:32
LjLi don't use any firewall interfaces02:32
bluefoxxwhy isnt tk 8.5 in the repos?i just spent the last three hours trying to figure out how to compile it or w/e and amsn is still whining02:32
robdigtanath: sounds right...hmm02:32
dawizyeah02:32
tarvidI would try a Windows repair with the Windows installation CD, I haven't lost data yet but you might be the first02:32
dawizi should just use iptables02:32
dawizive gotten lazy since my slack days02:32
LjLbluefoxx: Ubuntu never aimed at having the very latest versions of packages02:32
tanathrobdig, yeah, i know. i know it's there, i've done lots of things to it, but i just can't execute it. my default shell is zsh, but i tried with bash too02:32
zcat[1]dawiz: it loggs them02:32
helpmeOn xorg.conf, what is supposed to be on the line with resolution, ie 800x60002:32
LjLdawiz: i don't use iptables either.02:32
manduskiis there anyone here that knows a good deal about networking and wireless?02:32
helpmeCan someone paste their xorg.conf line, with resolution on it please02:32
tanathrobdig, always get 'zsh: no such file or directory'02:33
zcat[1]dawiz: it logs attempted connects ... it doesn't pop up windows about them though02:33
helpmejust paste the one line with 800x600 on it02:33

manduskihey gilda can you suggest something else?02:34
Mirado_tswJacksparrow: yes, well, livecd atm02:34
gildafor ?02:34
gigamonkeyIs there a general way to find the source for a given program (/usr/bin/network-admin in this case)02:34
bluefoxxLjL: well when can i expect it?i suck at compiling stuff, im one of those ppl who learns by doing really well but needs absoulute step by step(type in this, then this) to get the hang of something02:34
zcat[1]The most annoying thing in the world is windows users panicking because "omfg there's a root server attacking my box on port 53!!"02:34
manduskigilda, for connecting to the internet02:34
Mirado_tswjacksparrow : and the fdisk http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/54666/02:34
gigamonkeyI.e. is there some package I should install that would have the source?02:34
manduskigilda, still can't connect02:34
Jack_SparrowMirado_tsw: So, you cant get into ubuntu on the hd either?  then it is time to reinstall...02:34
Mirado_tswi can get into ubuntu02:35
gildahmmm its not in lscpi the hw   but in the lshw right manduski ?02:35
manduskigilda, i can connect through ethernet, but not though the laptop's wifi02:35
LjLbluefoxx: it will never come in Gutsy. it will be in Hardy.02:35
dawizi rarely checks those logs anyway02:35
manduskigilda, i don't see it under lspci02:35
tanathrobdig, i have never seen this. any ideas?02:35
manduskigilda, lemme check again02:35
dawizthis is my home pc02:35
gildawell thats a minor issue =p02:35
robdiggigamonkey: apt-get source network-manager02:35
dawizno need for ultra security really02:35
robdigtanath: not at the moment...02:36
Jack_SparrowMirado_tsw: There is no reason for that command I gave you to fail02:36
Mirado_tswim goin to try it again02:36
dawizif i needed that kind security and info id be reinstallin slack LjL02:36
manduskigilda, i don't see it here02:36
dawizhence why i use ubuntu for everyday practical enduser use02:37
bluefoxxMirado_tsw: i am jealous of you main HD02:37
robdigtanath: do you have read permissions in the directory?02:37
shiwarayahello people02:37
manduskigilda, but i do see it under lshw on the last block where "*-network" is02:37
tanathrobdig, uh, it's my home directory02:37
dawizless unnecesary headaches02:37
dawizand great docs02:37
tanathrobdig, and if i didn't how would other apps be able to do stuff to it? like chmod +x02:37
gildagimme sec manduski02:37
Mirado_tswJack_Sparrow: it brings up a blank document.. i installed grub to... the mbr02:38
tanathrobdig, but yes, i checked and i do02:38
robdigtanath: on directories x lets you do stuff to items in it, but if you can't read a file...chmod would not be reading the file...just a thought02:38
tanathrobdig, perms look good02:38
shiwarayai have a question, does ubuntu 7.10 has the last nvidia restricted drivers or i should download them from nvidia site?02:38
Jack_SparrowMirado_tsw: That doc should not be blank.. check the path02:38
gildamanduski, is it built in or pcmcia ?02:38
gildaor usb02:39
manduskigilda, built in02:39
Frogzooshiwaraya: download them02:39
gildado u know model ?02:39
Mirado_tswi checked it 3 times just to be sure..02:39
Mirado_tswi even copied it off the irc and tryed it02:39
dawizLjL well i reinstalled it, and it says its already in use by a system user02:39
shiwarayatx Frogzoo, but i have a old gforce4 card, should i donwload them anyways?02:39
Jack_SparrowMirado_tsw: gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst02:40
tanathrobdig, it makes no sense. i even use the full path and use tab completion so i know i'm getting it right, but it always says 'file or directory not found'02:40
dawizaalready exists as a system user02:40
robdigtanath: does it have a space in the name?02:40
dawiz*02:40
tanathrobdig, nope02:40
Jack_SparrowMirado_tsw: It comes up for me.. so I have no idea what the problem may be02:40
tanathrobdig, 4 alphabetical characters02:41
tanathrobdig, er, alphanumeric, but no numbers :P02:41
manduskigilda, the laptop is an EVEREX SR7200T02:41
tanathletters, that's the word, lmao02:41
robdigtanath: try putting it in single quotes, like './name' using tab completion02:41
fxdcan someone help me with video in firefox?02:42
manduskigilda, or do you mean model of the card?02:42
gildathe card plz02:42
tanathrobdig, same02:42
robdigtanath: can you start it using nautilus and double click?02:42
gamingany1 have any suggestions: im trying to listen to music while using teamspeak but its not letting me use both devices i can either talk on ts or listen to music but not both02:43
tanathrobdig, i just used mv to rename it and tried to run it again, but it still says not found even with the new name02:43
tanathrobdig, i imagine it's the same thing (i tried and nothing appeared to happen)02:43
Skyblader2omg is flash fixed?02:43

Jack_Sparrow!flashissues02:45
ubotuThe 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.02:45
Skyblader2oh....02:45
Skyblader2yay for other repos!02:45
robdigtanath: been a long time since i used it regularly. my thought is that maybe it would give a more informative message02:45
zcat[1]the fix is -proposed is also broken btw; apparently adobe are changing the download quite frequently02:45

ubotuUbuntu, 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).03:12

kisuHey guys, need to get my girlfriends laptop on ubuntu working perfectly.  Having difficulty with this webcam, doesnt seem to be working at all.  Here is the output from lsusb, Bus 002 Device 002: ID 054c:0107 Sony Corp. VCC-U01 Visual Communication Camera.  Can someone please help me get a hot girl on nix :d04:12

quaaldn4, yes, the command prompt, or terminal, is in the picture.04:18
PKdoRbazhang: yes it is04:18
paul__Novice user here...  Have read and implemented suggestions on "Playing Restricted Formats" with no luck.  Any suggestions?04:18
puffpaul__: what version?04:19
bazhangPKdoR: which installed first?04:19
Kuwangergilda: Um, do the math.  12.5kHz/byte works out to be 65mHz for dialup and 1.5gHz for 120KB/s.04:19
paul__7.1004:19
CelesOkay it apparently installed in terminal04:19

paul__installing libdvdcss2 has not helped me with reading dvd's.04:46
ubotuThe 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.04:46

paul__I've followed all the Restricted Format instructions.... I'm thinking my problem may be that the software can't see/mount the dvd drive?04:48
czer323lufis, Yeah, i've got 2, and i get mixed results with both.  One of them, which i think i damaged while improperly removing it, gives me a weird error -71.  The other, reads the cards as a scsi?  I know that it works fine with a SD card, and i use a sd to miniSD converter to use THAT reader, but it doesn't actually mount.04:48

Max_-thanks04:49
gildaDamoochr_, you need to declare the default gateway in order to travel through the router04:49
czer323I've tried mkfs.vfat and it just errors with: Attempting to create a too large file system.  And fdisk -l does nothing.04:49
crazy3kI'm having a problem with permissions here. I copied something from an old drive using root. Now, I can't access those files via Nautilus. I already tried "sudo chmod -R 777 dir/" but I'm still not able to access the files in Nautilus. I can see them via the terminal though :/04:49
Frogzoogilda: they're all the same subnet afaik04:49
gildaDamoochr_, especially if you are using static ip addresses04:49
* speeddemon8803 feels like im in star wars with gateways and router traveling now :P04:49
francis!minimal04:49
ubotuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD04:49
Damoochr_frogzoo I can ping router *.*.1.1 (router) gut not *.101 (other Puter ) or *.103 (printer)04:49

Damoochr_gut = but04:49
astro76crazy3k: you probably need to chown to your user, 777 is almost never the right answer04:50
jeffMASTERflexczer323: you can probably try using gparted or the gparted LiveCd to attempt to format the SDHC card.04:50

czer323jeffMASTERflex, Messages in the terminal for it complaing about "gprogram gparted is using a deprecated SCSI ioctl, Please convert it to SG_IO04:52

M-Nagatobah, stupid register05:02
M-Nagatoanyway05:02
M-Nagatoit'll tell you at the end if it's recoverable05:02
gildayes Gman99999 you will have to install the module but we will need to see if the device is registered05:02
Gman99999gilda ok so if i plug it in and its not registered then it wont work?05:02
johnnyboy022frogzoo: i want to run it as a shell script?05:02

gildaGman99999, nope not saying that05:02
brownie17brandon_, it sounds like you want a virtual windows system. try qemu or virtualbox05:02
brownie17i recently bought a fm transmitter for my iPod, and when i plug in the power cable it goes to the 'do not disconnect' screen and will not play any music. is this possibly to do with any changes to the iPod software my linux system has made? does anyone know how to 'eject' or 'unmount' the ipod by pressing a button on the ipod unit?05:02
Gman99999gilda I uninstalled all previous drivers for this card so its a fresh install05:03
brandon_i know how to make the ubuntu's split screen run in window05:03
geekworxhelo05:03
M-Nagatoand to repeat what i said that got spammed out fast, testdisk scans the entire drive you want to recover and looks for any identifying information05:03
Gman99999gilda cause the last one i had wasnt a good one05:03

j_humphreygnutropic, I'm on a tablet laptop, with an ati x1400 gfx card05:09
tripppyFrogzoo, got it. thankx05:09
M-NagatoMrObvious, what, do you mean like software that'll let you burn cds? k3b is a good one if that's what you're looking for05:09
gildajohnnyboy022, what happens when u type   glxinfo | grep direct05:09
M-Nagatoi'm not sure of one for gnome, but k3b is pretty awesome regardless of it being for kde :305:09
phuzionis it necessary to defragment in ubuntu?05:10
johnnyboy022gilda: direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)05:10
j_humphreygnutropic, i have to download a specific proprietory driver to run it correctly05:10
MrObviousM-Nagato: Well I have MP3s I need to make an audio CD.05:10

Damoochr_Gilda I did not see your pm, looking in the wrong area05:10
jeffMASTERflexMrObvious: if you insert a blank cd into your burner, a dialog pops up that allows you to open up serpentine to burn mp3 to cd05:10
M-Nagatocan't say i blame you, MrObvious  :) transcoding ftl05:10
gnutronicj_humphrey: ah, lose the  current driver then.05:11

jtmitchumI went into a restore kernel and mount /dev/hda -o rw,remount and removed gdm and x-windows, but no good05:28

therealnanotubephuzion: try this tutorial: http://sial.org/howto/openssh/publickey-auth/05:29
Damoochr_gilda done you start05:29
Kuwangerj2daosh: I'm pretty sure dsl had instructions on this.. :/05:29
jtmitchumany takers?05:29
rredd4j2daosh  maybe vmware server you can launch ubuntu in that.05:29
M-NagatoFacedown, i don't see why choosing debian over ubuntu would make much of a different05:29
j2daoshi dont recall any instructions on doing it this way05:29

j2daoshwas it on the dsl site?05:30
tcpdumpgodjtmitchum, is the filesystem dirty?05:30
gildaDamoochr_, seems a no go not sure whats up05:30
tcpdumpgodhas FSCK marked it as clean?05:30

gigamonk`Not working for me while spaceless pass phrases work fine.05:30
j2daoshok, ill reread the site again... maybe i missed it somehow05:31
Damoochr_gilda  I have pidgin installed05:31
jtmitchumtcpdumpgod: best way to tell?05:31
tcpdumpgodjtmitchum, what you need to do is boot into single user mode in grub, then fsck the slice that its marking as read only.05:31
M-Nagatogigamonk`, i recall a thread about that on ubuntuforums while searching for information. maybe a search over there would return some helpful threads05:31
tcpdumpgodjtmitchum, you need to do it from grub, because you need to have it unmounted unless it needs to make changes to the filesystem.05:31
Damoochr_gilda : paulslaptop2@hotmail.com (msn network)05:32

jtmitchumdoes that hurt anything?05:59

baegleWhy the heck would doing an apt-get update completely anihilate my ability to use my most common apps with no helpful messages at all?06:00
tim_astro76:  Why not?06:00
astro76tim_: this is why they have a separate repo/package for each ubuntu version06:00
iKapd33d, no errors at all.. though i did get eth1 error before but then i disabled that so it shuts off fine.. screen goes blank and everything.. but the laptop still has power. its very weird.06:00
therealnanotubejtmitchum: errr... i don't know anything about lvm, so... i don't know even whether fsck will work06:00
astro76tim_: because of my earlier explanation06:00

FlynsarmyIs there a way to stop ubuntu turning off the HDD when i'm transferring large files from the network onto here and go idle?07:06
bloonyogre: cheers07:06
chabaldo you guys think richard stallman is a fantatic in  a bad way?07:06
Frogzoobloony: df -h07:06
Darkmysterebrb...07:06
FrogzooFlynsarmy: the hdd turns off??07:07
soldatsDarkmystere: it depends on your preference. screen is very powerful but you need to learn a little about it first. you can still run a gui but one that works primarily off of terminals liek ratpoison or dwm07:07
nerdriotThank you zcat! tr worked nicely :)07:07
BlueEyes_JhbHi all. How do I get past my proxy to be able to run apt get in a terminal ?07:07
cllewwhy won't my USB devices get recognized?  any help?  If the devices are plugged in during boot up or a few minutes after they will be recognized, but much after that they aren't even noticed.07:07
FlynsarmyFrogzoo: well that's what i THINK might be happening. All i know is if i go idle while doing the transfers and i come back, they've failed07:07
jmdccllew: what does dmesg tell you?07:08
ImaginalDifferent version of same question: how do I change what nautilis thinks is a zip file?07:08
ogreanyone have a recommendation for a newsreader? I want something easy. plllzzzz07:08
zcat[1]I always used to use slrn ...07:09
jmdcogre: I use liferea07:09
ogrethanks guys07:09
BlueEyes_JhbHi all. How do I get past my proxy to be able to run apt get in a terminal ?07:09
FrogzooFlynsarmy: what command?07:09
FlynsarmyFrogzoo: Using the GUi i drag/drop from a windows PC onto an NTFS partitioned drive on my ubuntu machine07:10
cllewI don't have the slightest clue as to what to tell you from the results.07:10
jeffMASTERflexogre: if you want to download binaries as well, i suggest pan as a newsreader07:10
FrogzooFlynsarmy: does mount show the partition as rw? or read only?07:11
ogrejeffMASTERflex:  ahh thanks that is what i was looking for07:11
son9524what the heck07:11
son9524i just switched07:11
Ububeginmy java was unable to run... then one site recommended i do this..  java -classpath . myfirstjavaprog ...  and it worked...  I forgot but I think there is a way to make it permanent.. so you can run simply by typing java myfirstjavaprog07:12
son9524Terminal07:12
FlynsarmyFrogzoo: I'm able to write to the directories on both the windows and this pc07:12
son9524ooh i figured it out i have to use as some 1 else started ctrl alt F1-f607:12
BlueEyes_JhbHow else can I install libdvdread3 if I am unable to use apt get please ?07:12
jmdccllew: dmesg is a command line utility that prints out device messages from the kernel, if you open a terminal and do "dmesg | tail" (without the quotes)  right after you plug in a usb device, you might get some information07:12
son9524!info Mplay07:12

Frogzoojmdc: tail -f /var/log/messages07:13
zcat[1]BlueEyes_Jhb: You can configure apt to use a proxy.. easiest was is via synaptic I think .. preferences > network07:14
PKdoRis grun supposed to load from stage 3?07:14
PKdoRI mean grub07:14
FrogzooPKdoR: grub has 2 stages only07:15
BlueEyes_Jhbzcat[1] I dont think libdvdread3 is listed in synaptic, i'll double check07:15
jmdccllew: just paste it to the pastebin07:15

zcat[1]BlueEyes_Jhb: synaptic is just a friendly way of accessing and/or sonfiguring apt07:17
son9524is it safe if i install twin?07:17

zcat[1]if it's not in synaptic, you won't be able to apt-get it either 'cos they're the same thing07:17
son9524I mean will it mess up x-server07:18
KineticCodercan somebody smarter than myself please tell me what the difference between apt-get and aptitude is?  and which is better07:18
son9524and ill never be able to use GUI again?07:18
jmdccllew, unplug it, plug it back in, and copy the output to the pastebin07:18
son9524kineticCoder,Aptitude is better.07:19
son9524!info Aptitude07:19

zcat[1]KineticCoder: apt-get and aptitude do basically the same job.. aptitude is slightly friendlier I think.. I tend to use apt-get or synaptic07:19
KineticCoderi also use apt-get, but someone told me that aptitude works cleaner and does a better job of removing packages you want to uninstall07:20
Le^statwhat app can i use as web proxy for ubuntu07:20
zcat[1]so does apt-get autoremove :)07:20
KineticCoderthanks07:20

jmdcKineticCoder: apt-get is command line oriented. You type apt-get install foo. aptitude is screen oriented, you pick from a menu in text mode, synaptic is a gui, they all are using the same libraries to get the work done, just use autoremove from the command line07:21
son9524i keep getting all mouse drivers Failed when i try and run Twin why is that?07:21
Le^statty07:21
jootzcat[1], hi, John here07:21

KineticCodergood nite all, I must say, this is a great channel thanks again to all of you who participate and help07:22

ubotuPlease watch your language and topic to help keep this channel family friendly.07:23
jmdcI think it uses ncurses ... maybe some other library, anyway it's full screen07:23
jootzcat[1], did not try that tried a few john type names failed07:23
nemilar(no cursing)07:23
jmdc...07:23
Flanneljmdc: No, you can also run it straight from the CLI.  aptitude install blah07:24
zcat[1]if you use 'aptitude install' etc it behaves mosre or less like apt-get07:24
jmdcI wish somebody would ask about how to do file system checks07:24
KineticCoderjmdc: thanks great explanation, i wasnt aware they used the same libraries07:24
zcat[1]jmdc: why?07:24
zcat[1]ahhh ..fsck?07:24
