happyface_just connect them00:00
LOLpcaxel_:thanks that will probably help00:00
amenadoFeebz13-> you dont have any valid ip address assigned to you, those 169.x.x are bogus ones,00:00
toresnhappyface_, doesn't require some configuration?00:00
axel_LOLpc: I think the installation from USB-stick would be best.00:00
Feebz13amenado: so should i go to static ip?00:00
Feebz13amenado: i'm using dhcp00:00
amenadoFeebz13-> it is up to you, you tell us how your network layout is, and then we can suggest00:01
LOLpcaxel_:i dont have one00:01
amenadoFeebz13-> if you are using dhcp, its not setup correctly00:01
speedhunt3rsamba is really annoying me, ever since the updates it has stopped detecting any pc's on the network... I can't even see other pcs running ubuntu let alone windows...does anyone else have the same problem?00:01
Feebz13amenado: yea, i'm using dhcp (well my other windows computers are)00:01
amenadoFeebz13-> then you must activate your dchlient on this ubuntu00:02
LOLpcaxel_:i could maybe use my ipod, but i would have to reformat it00:02
gnutronicFeebz13 - try this in a terminial 'ps aux |grep dhclient'  to see if the dhcp process is running.00:02
magickIs there anyway to use WINS resolution on a windows network? So I don't have to manually add computers to my hosts file?00:02
amenadoFeebz13-> how my puters you hve on your network?00:02
LOLpci jsut remembered i have an ipod not in use00:02
amenadomagick-> you tried asking folks at #windows  ?00:02
amenadoFeebz13-> how many puters you have on your network?00:03
magickamenado, i'm on an ubuntu machine and can't "ping computername"00:03
FBIGuyamenado: people know more about windows here XD00:03
Feebz13amenado: 500:03
axel_LOLpc: Is Windows installed on the computer?00:04
amenadoi like this idea on fedora, you a copy of a dvd.iso in a directory and tell the installer it is there00:04
yell0wTheRealFaceOfBoe: uhm just read the thread, i believe it explained well what's needed and what's not so necessary00:04

nortyI have some links in my places menu that I dont want there anymore, how do I get rid of them? I tried right clicking but they option to remove them is not there00:04
amenadomagick->  if you cant ping, troubleshoot, make sure yours have an ip address assigned and a route to get to the network00:05
yell0wTheRealFaceOfBoe: when in doubt just shout in here what's "such and such" supposed to be and etc...00:05
b4l74z4ri think its unreasonable that tomboy notes should use 18.5mb ram00:05
magickamenado, I can ping my windows computers, but I want to be able to use their computer names instead of ip. I have no way of finding out their IPs00:05
gnutronicFeebz13 - thats good then. i didnt catch all your posts, have you tried sudo if-up eth0 [or whichever interface applies?00:05
amenadomagick-> you tried asking folks at #windows  ?00:06
magickno, I will00:06
* amenado shows the gateway to magick :P00:06
nortyI have some links in my places menu that I dont want there anymore, how do I get rid of them? I tried right clicking but they option to remove them is not there00:07
Feebz13gnutronic: command not found00:07
amenadoFeebz13-> no - on ifup00:07
TheRealFaceOfBoeyell0w: the only service that i changed was gdm, in the article it says when the service should be running but not at which priority, i've set it to 50 at the moment for run levels 2,3,4,500:07
TheRealFaceOfBoeyell0w: i suppose the question i'm asking is, could someone look at what settings they have for gdm00:08
gnutronicFeebz13 - sorry, my mistake it's 'ifup interface'00:08
Feebz13amendo/gnu: unkown interface eth0=eth000:08
Feebz13amendo/gnu: it's usually eth000:09
amenadoFeebz13-> thats an ethernet ?  btw.. nick is amenado00:09
gnutronicFeebz13 - I'll let amenado help you I didn't catch your entire problem.00:09
Feebz13amenado: sorry. yes, ethernet pci card00:10
amenadognutronic-> we can tag team..four eyes better than two00:10
bwfmagick, you need to disable the windows firewall or allow netbios requests00:10
gnutronicTheRealFaceOfBoe - why change gdm? thats gnome display manager?00:11
amenadoFeebz13-> try /etc/init.d/networking restart00:11
magickbwf, by default will ubuntu send out netbios requests?00:11
TheRealFaceOfBoegnutronic: i was exploring whether i would prefer a cli login and if it was much quicker00:11
bwfnot sure, I just know windows uses netbios to resolve computer names00:12
bwfif your not using dns00:12

happyface__amenado: moving it from roam mode to manual really messed it up... nm would freeze and when I logged out then in, it wouldn't load my system. I restarted, removed the new stuff from /etc/network/interfaces, and it works again... and I can magically ping my router now00:15
white_eaglehow can I use another set of icons, I moved the icons set to ~/.icons but I don't know what to do next00:15

bastid_raZori recently put a 3.5 floppy back in a box with 7.04 installed.. i can get a directory listing of the files on the floppy but can't copy any off.. i get an I/O error.. why might i be able to view the contents but not copy them?01:00
Jack_Sparrowdanielski_pl:   did you use  ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid01:00
zelrikriandoWebu: it seems to be desert there01:01
SetagLuca, this is the info I am trying to use myself; https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FixVideoResoluti onHowto01:01
Webuzelrikriando, try to tell a bit more about your problem just in case.01:01
danielski_plJack_sparrow: yep01:01
cosmodadbastid_raZor: typical error manifestation of floppy disks.01:01
SetagI have to go, I have never seen IRC before, very cool. have a nice day, bye all.01:02
Jack_Sparrowdanielski_pl: It shows the drive but not the uuid?01:02
bastid_raZorcosmodad; okay, any idea as to how i can get the file i need from the floppy?01:02
cosmodadbastid_raZor: plus, directory listings only require metadata reading, while filesystem copy operations work on payload data.01:02
danielski_pldo u want me to pastebin my fstab?, Jack_Sparrow : it doesntshow either01:02
cosmodadbastid_raZor: you could try to save the files with dd_rescue first, and then do some fsck'ing afterwards.01:02
Jack_Sparrowdanielski_pl: No... does it show in fdisk -l  last letter is L  the drive not the uuid..01:03
bastid_raZorcosmodad; okay.. will try that. thanks01:04
cosmodadbastid_raZor: you are welcome.01:04

maxownzQ_Continuum: yea i just picked that up off the ubuntu page but I don't have a Settings tab unless there's another window i can't see01:08
danielski_plJack_Sparrow: thats ok, do u need my fstab?01:08

Starnestommymaxownz: are you using regular xchat or xchat-gnome?01:09
Jack_Sparrowdanielski_pl: hold for a sec..  let me look in here first01:09
MaxPayneIf you are using xchat-gnome, then you might have to check in gconf-editor?01:09
cosmodadnewbie: why do you want to reinstall?01:09
cosmodadnewbie: unlike Windows, you don't need to reinstall every now and then to keep the OS runnable.01:10
Jack_Sparrowdanielski_pl: I dont need the fstab...  yet.. which drive is giving the problems01:11
trippssi've got an annoying problem I cannot seem to solve for the life of me. connecting to irc on my ubuntu box takes forever (e.g., 10 minutes, 30 minutes, etc.) and using mirc in wine always connects faster and stays connected longer than any other native irc client (pidgin, xchat, etc.). Other win boxes on same network connect immediately without problem. i'm not running a firewall either. any ideas?01:11
Starnestommymaxownz: I'm not sure if xchat-gnome supports proxies, but I do know that the regular version does.01:11
danielski_plJack_Sparrow : SDB101:11
newbiecosmodad, the problem is that sometimes when the computer is booting up, it takes up to 5 minutes, and sometimes it restarts w/o accessing ubuntu. Also when I try to play video/audio files, the movie player fails, and I have to restart one or two times01:11
Jack_Sparrowdanielski_pl: You are looking for uuid of sdb1 to get it mounted?01:12

ConstyXIVare you sure you're not running a 5-year XP install?01:12
lucai'm missing my bottom part of my monitor how do i fix it?01:12
cosmodadnewbie: long boot times might be related to networking issues. What does the movie player say? What do you mean by "w/o accessing ubuntu"?01:12
Jangariis there a room for help on bash?01:13
StarnestommyJangari: #bash ?01:13

cosmodadnewbie: what player did you use? have you tried an alternative (e.g., mplayer or totem)?01:14
lucaDrBeaverhausen: so flash video are working, but no avi o mpeg etc etc?01:15
HemebondI got my sound problem fixed thanks to someone in #alsa.01:15
HemebondI've updated my post in the forums.01:15
newbiecosmodad, yes, I have Mplayer, totem, vlc, xine and all of them fail01:15
danielski_plJack_Sparrow: "/dev/sdb1p1" wouldnt have a clue what that is01:15
Jack_SparrowHemebond: Good people over there for sound issues01:15
DrBeaverhausennot sure.  Pretty much any video I go to from digg.com for example just won't load.  I went to the ubuntu support page and installed the video add-ons for firefox.01:16
cosmodadnewbie: pasting mplayer's output might pose to be helpful.01:16
DrBeaverhausenI also can't get some web pages to load right.01:16
Jack_SparrowWhat is up with the rest of that drive...  Is this a new drive ?01:16
lucaDrBeaverhausen: like what web  pages?01:17

newbiecosmodad, mmm I do not know how to do that, could you tell me?01:19
cosmodad!pastebin | newbie01:19
ubotunewbie: pastebin is a service to post large texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org (make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the #ubuntu channel topic)01:19
cosmodadnewbie: copy mplayer's output and paste it using the pastebin service. Publish the URL afterwards.01:20
lucaDrBeaverhausen: try to go www.adobe.com tell me if u can see the animation01:20

sovietn00bDoYouKnow: how to select? its there01:20
DoYouKnowsovietn00b, you can probably just delete it01:21
DoYouKnowbut make a backup first01:21
Jack_Sparrowdanielski_pl: Did you use the special install disk to get it going in windows when you originally installed it?01:21
DrBeaverhausengoing there now01:21
DoYouKnowsovietn00b, then when you re-run emerald, it will recreate it for you01:21
DrBeaverhausenWhat am I looking for.01:21

DrBeaverhausenI just switched a few weeks ago.  So far, so good.01:24
Jack_Sparrowdanielski_pl: Ok, where (I think) the problem resides is in a bios limitation on large drives.  THis is not a very new motherboard, or that is my guess01:24
eekThorsten11:  thanks for the hello.01:24
newbiecosmodad, how can I do that? I click on paste and it says: Posted by newbie on February 6th 02:2301:25

cosmodadnewbie: np mate.01:26
wil_I have the latest version of ubuntu running (finally!), I was wondering if I am better off using internal graphics (intel GMA 900) or a old nvidia geforce 4 mx 440 I have laying around?01:26
lucaDrBeaverhausen: go to http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz01:26
danbhfiveanyone know how to make a recording of my desktop?  Like, I hit a button, and a then I do stuff on the desktop, and then people can see a video showing what I did.01:26
wil_its old, but spare :S01:26
lucaDrBeaverhausen: download it in your desktop01:26
georgy_28! istanbul01:26
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about istanbul - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi01:26
eekbazhang:  love the cube effect along with the "window thing finder"01:26
sixstormwil_:  nvidia card will do better than the Intel chipset01:26
bazhangeek do you plan on running feisty until the end of its support cycle? gutsy is out now, and hardy is around the corner01:26
Jack_Sparrowdanielski_pl: If your BIOS can handle hard drives larger than 137GB, you won't need new drivers  .. per  http://www.md4pc.com/questions/58.htm  IS where I think your problem starts01:26
DrBeaverhausenOK, got it.01:27
lucaDrBeaverhausen: now open terminal01:27
wil_sixstorm thanks. this is my first day with linux.... I will put it in now. Do I need to do anything or will it auto detect the new gfx card?01:27
lucaDrBeaverhausen: Apllication - Accessories - Terminal01:27
bastid_raZorcosmodad; that didn't work either but that is okay. thanks for the attempt01:27
eekbazhang:  what would changing over take and how would it effect me?01:27
Jack_Sparrowdanielski_pl: I knew that number looked familiar. 137 gig...01:28
lucaDrBeaverhausen: type cd desktop01:28
newbiecosmodad, but that is just to mention one problem. Also when ubuntu is loaded, I got this error:  The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_CPUFreqApplet", and it asks me if I want to delete the applet from configuration01:28
cosmodadbastid_raZor: if this is a conventional zip file, it will work. Been doing it a hundred times.01:28
cosmodadbastid_raZor: ah sorry wrong channel.01:28
Jack_Sparrowdanielski_pl: Did you make any bios changes? jumpers on the drive perhaps?01:28
bastid_raZorcosmodad; heh.. workTime for me.. enjoy01:28
cosmodadbastid_raZor: in that case, the damage might be too bad.01:28
achariswhat's the word on key remapping under gutsy?01:28
eekbazhang: I'm new to linux.  became part of the collective in 8/16/0701:28
Q_ContinuumAnyone good with getting Bluetooth devices working under Gutsy?  I can see it, but it won't connect - I've gotten it added under 'input' devices now.01:28
bazhangeek this is a destop or a laptop? you might want to run the live cd of gutsy and see how well it recognizes your hardware--different folks have different experiences01:28
DrBeaverhausenjust says not found.01:28
sixstormwil_:  depends.  sometimes it will pop up to ask your permission about "Restricted Drivers", which you would want to use.  they are nvidia graphic drivers01:28
cosmodadnewbie: hmm did you change anything vital to the system?01:29
lucaDrBeaverhausen: type cd Desktop sorry01:29
eekbazhang:  God get Wifi running my bud had to add lines to  the script01:29
newbiecosmodad, not that I am aware. I just started installing apps01:29
wil_but I wont break anything if I restart and put in the new card?01:29
DrBeaverhausenstill says no such file.01:29
cosmodadnewbie: do you have enough free space?01:29
newbiecosmodad, sure I do01:29
lucaDrBeaverhausen: type ls and copy and past here the output01:30
newbiecosmodad, about 10 gigs, and I left 2 gigs for swap01:30
juanmy alt-cd refused to install to when i told it about my grub, how do i setup grub after the install? so that it updates as normal01:30
acharis.Xmodmap seems not to do anything01:30
Jack_Sparrowdanielski_pl:  Did I lose you?01:30
eekbazhang: how woould it effect all the setting on all the programs i run?  redoing that would suck01:30
danielski_plJack_sparrow: nah i didnt01:30
juano and is reiserfs a good FS for a laptop? o and can reiserfs be shrunk?01:30
cosmodadnewbie: hmm ok I do start to think that reinstalling might be wise due to the high number of issues.01:30
sixstormwil_:  no it won't break anything.  just back up your stuff before you switch GFX cards if you want to.01:30
DrBeaverhausenSorry, not following you01:30
cosmodadnewbie: how long have you been using this system?01:30
bazhangeek thus my advice to try the livecd before doing anything--if gutsy can do your wifi and you dont have too minimal amount of ram then gutsy might be a good choice01:30
wil_I have nothing to back up! just trying linux! thanks, i will try it now!01:31
danielski_plJack_Sparrow, i did reset the bios coz i stuffed something01:31
newbiecosmodad, since ubuntu 7.10 was released01:31
sixstormno prob, wil_01:31
cosmodadnewbie: uhm.01:31
bazhangeek that depends on if you want to upgrade via the net; if so, then it will leave them untouched01:31
newbiecosmodad, I think since October01:31
lucaDrBeaverhausen: type ls in the terminal should appear something can you select that with the mouse, copy it and past here so i can have a look?01:31
cosmodadnewbie: you should check the logs in /var/log too.01:31
juaneek: program settings can be kept by backing up you /home01:31
acharisthe dumpkeys/loadkeys looks like it might not work either01:31
Jack_Sparrowdanielski_pl: I need to think that it isnt a coincidence that your first partition shows 137 gig.. so there should be an optionin the bios to use large drives and you used a failsafe reset of the bios01:32
eekbazhang: http:?  for net?01:32
newbiecosmodad, Also, I will have to reinstall windows in my computer, but it will mess up the grub. Is there any tutorial that tells me how to recover it after reinstalling windows?01:32
bazhangeek:  yes01:32
DrBeaverhausensean@sean-desktop:~$ cd desktop01:32

ubotunewbie: grub is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost grub after installing windows: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows - Making GRUB floppies & other GRUB howtos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto01:32
eekjuan: cp /home ...what for that01:32
lucaDrBeaverhausen: ok01:33
Jack_Sparrowdanielski_pl: So... go through your cmos/bios setup and see what you can find.. or your manual.. and I will give you my best shot at how it should be setup01:33
cosmodadnewbie: as to the mplayer problem, you could try another -vo target (see -vo help).01:33
juaneek well if you right your /home (including . files) to a disk then you cant loose program settings on an update at most you will loose,  system settings which may need changing anyway01:33
lucaDrBeaverhausen: run the command "tar zxvf install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz"01:33
danielski_plJack_sparrow: ill brb gonna look now.01:33
Jack_Sparrowdanielski_pl: This isnt really Ubuntu related, but I still want to try and help.. If needed, we can take it to another channel to reduce noise in here for the others01:34
cosmodadnewbie: as to the numerous other issues: I'd check /var/log/* and the boot messages (F1) before reconsidering re-install.01:34
bazhangeek that is your home directory01:34
DrBeaverhausenError exit delayed from previous errors01:34
Jack_SparrowDrBeaverhausen: Previous errors is the operative part of that phrase01:35
newbiecosmodad, thank you very much for helping me, I really appreciate it, but I think there are tons of error accumulated out there, and I want my computer to be fresh again. I can backup all of my files, so I do not have much to loose but a few hours01:35
tritan_3hello, hello, hello, is there anybody in there?01:35
DrBeaverhausenSo, have I screwed something up real bad?01:35
tritan_3just nod if you can hear me...01:35
bazhanghere is wishing everyone in #ubuntu a Happy Chinese N ew Year! thank you for the past year of support ;]01:36
newbiecosmodad, but will look at the log file to check the errors, will save them in case I have those errors again01:36
cosmodadnewbie: sure thing. Just save your /home stuff and possibly store the list of installed packages.01:36
mindframe_what controls which splash image is displayed on startup?  i tried out kubuntu for a bit, but uninstalled it.  now the kubuntu startup splash still shows instea of xubuntu one01:36
tritan_3is there anyone at home?01:36

newbiecosmodad, one last question, after reinstalling, how can I point the system to the new /home partition to save my files? If I do this, can I reinstall ubuntu later in case I have issues like I'm having now w/o loosing my data?01:37
Joelitoin ubuntu repos we have gambas and gambas2..err...which one should I download? :?01:37
feebzanybody have any success getting an nvidia card to work with desktop effects?01:37
DrBeaverhausenI'm a total noob.  I don't know what you mean by Is and jpost the output.01:37
Jack_Sparrowfeebz: YEs01:37
bazhangeek not quite that simple--you need to tar (or otherwise compress) your /home and then copy it over01:38
newbiecosmodad, when I said loosing my data, I mean my personal files01:38
lucaDrBeaverhausen: tye ls in the terminal01:38
Jack_Sparrowfeebz: 6600 in this box01:38
lucaDrBeaverhausen: type ls in the terminal01:38
juaneek: you can copy all the files to a memory pen (i cant rember how to make sure you copy . files in gui but im sure its fairly straight forward)01:38
DrBeaverhausenType "Is" in the terminal?01:38
=== Varka_ is now known as Varka
lucaDrBeaverhausen: yes01:38
feebzjack: i just got a 6800, every time i try to enable the desktop effects it says i must enable restricted drivers01:38
LxznDrBeaverhausen, ls = LS.01:38
cosmodadnewbie: just backup your personal data now, and reinstall Ubuntu. Afterwards, copy your data back into your $HOME...01:38
juanbazhang: surely that only if it cant fit on the memory pen01:38
danbhfivenewbie: I wrote a guide on how to move your /home01:39
cosmodadnewbie: for future re-installations, it will be easier if you keep /home on a separate partition.01:39

r0bbyanon222: sure rm -rf /02:18
cosmodadhou5ton: gstreamer is just a framework AFAIK, there's no gstreamer frontend.02:18
Jack_Sparrowpvl1: I doubt it will be a quick magic act...  It will be a gradual improvement over time.  Remember, they want to sell new hardware more than provide free drivers for older hardware02:18
Jack_Sparrowdanielski_pl: DO NOT do that command in here... or anywhere02:18

ripp3r666ConstyXIV, you can use vmware or you can use virtualbox , or qemu02:23
ripp3r666take your pick02:23
r0bbyis it connected?02:24
ripp3r666or you can use xen if your cpu supports it.02:24
ConstyXIVi believe i meant parallel init02:24
X600Jack_Sparrow, if you've got a moment, mind if I ask you a couple questions?02:24

zil2ok... il type that now02:25
poningru!sound | lilg11111102:25
ubotulilg111111: If you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer).

ripp3r666its sudo cp -R ~/* <dest here> @ newbie02:26
danbhfivenewbie: you should follow the guide I gave you, it has lots of resources, and an explanation of why cp won't work02:26
poningruzil2: sorry I meant sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg-core02:26
ripp3r666danbhfive, cp will work.02:26
zil2argh :S I havent done it yet02:26
zelrikriandozil2: I think it is...or almost :)02:26
danbhfiveripp3r666: not according to other people02:26
poningruzil2: actually it is, if you had used the latest version this wouldnt have happened02:26
ripp3r666they must not know how to use the toolchain then.02:26
zil2I just got the latest version02:26
ripp3r666its just permission issues02:27
poningruthe latest version has whats called backup X which would not have let this happened02:27
poningruzil2: which one?02:27
ripp3r666so do sudo cp -R ~/* /DESTINATION02:27
cosmodadnewbie: I'd use something like this: rsync -avrPS /home/myhome/ <destination>02:27
danbhfiveripp3r666: and, I guess, that it doesn't handle hidden files well02:27
zil2im on02:27
ripp3r666danbhfive, yes it will02:27
Moumny[excuse my bad english] i read the ubuntu website about my wifi-card (boardcom bcm94311mcg on a compaq notebook) and i dont understand what to do (use windows drivers or just the one in ubuntu) thank you for answer02:27

r0bbyhou5ton: i can read02:28
danbhfiveripp3r666: there is nothing wrong with your syntax, the question relates with how cp works internally02:28
ripp3r666hou5ton, what kind of webcam?02:28
zil2im not sure what version I have... I only installed it about 2 hours ago, I got the latest iso02:28
cosmodadOnyx: put the packages on hold using synaptics or aptitude.02:28
poningruOnyx: read up on apt.conf02:28
ripp3r666danbhfive, if your setuid root , you can copy anything with cp02:28

ogre_can someone tell me what this error is telling me? http://img256.imageshack.us/img256/9741/screenshotvb6.png02:29

Creationistscguy318: They're already closed.  I've tried restarting X too.02:29
dan_lNotice to my fellow n000bs:  Tilda is the greatest program ever invented.  That is all.02:29
ripp3r666newbie you could do that from /etc/ and it would work02:29
Onyxponingru: Where?02:29
ubotuIf an APT front-end crashed and your database is locked, try this in a !terminal: « sudo fuser -vki /var/lib/dpkg/lock;sudo dpkg --configure -a »02:29

danbhfiveripp3r666: here is the source, FYI http://www.us.debian.org/doc/manuals/reference/ch-tips.en.html#s-archiving02:30
cosmodadnoodles12: you'd need a framebuffer.02:30
poningruOnyx: or you can just put it on 'hold' in synaptic02:30
psssJack_Sparrow after that what happen if i reboot?02:30
dan_lPhroughy:  64 or 386?02:30
newbieripp3r666, but does it only copy my /home folder and everything inside there, or it also copies other stuff?02:30
scguy318ogre_: you didn't install kernel modules for VirtualBox02:30
cosmodadnoodles12: or do you mean a terminal opened in GNOME or KDE?02:30
phroughydan_l: 383 kubuntu02:30
ripp3r666newbie that just copies your entire home folder.02:30
Jack_Sparrowpsss: You should get basic gui.. then work on setting up real video driver02:31
Celeshow do you get the newest version of pidgin?02:31
ripp3r666brb getting coffee02:31
CreationistNow I need help getting my monitor setup properly.  It's a 1400x1050 resolution but I can't get it set to 60Hz refresh rate.... only 50 and 51 are available.02:31
* Celes hugs jangari02:31
Onyxponingru: I don't see an option for that in Synaptic.02:31
Jack_SparrowCeles: getdeb.com02:31
newbiecosmodad, what advantage does the rsync option has against the cp option?02:31
venzQuestion: By installing only a minimal ubuntu. If I install xfce4, does that already include a desktop manager or should I install a separate one?02:31
newbieripp3r666, all right, got it02:31
poningruOnyx: you dont see lock version and force version under package?02:31
Celescant I just do some terminal code for it lol02:31
venzcommand i use: apt-get install xfce4 xorg02:31
psssJack_Sparrow thank you :)02:32
ubotuPlease don't use "LOL" and "OMG" and so forth on a regular basis. This is IRC, not IM, and using those lines on their own is not required, and it is rather annoying to the rest of the people in the channel; thanks.02:32
poningruvenz: install xubuntu-desktop it will include it all02:32
cosmodadnewbie: the major advantage is: you can resume the copy process if you have to cancel it for whatever reason.02:32
Jack_SparrowCeles: For the latset pidgin... remember to remove the old pidgin first02:32
Onyxponingru: Yes, but that's not the term that was used, so I didn't associate "hold" with it... sorry.02:32
Celeshow do you remove the old pidgin and get the new :S that I dont get02:32
poningruOnyx: oh sorry02:32
newbiecosmodad, then I think I will use such command. Thanks02:32
ogre_scguy318:  how do install the kernel modules for it? yesterday when i tried to do what it told me it wrecked my wireless02:32
poningruCeles: just wait till april so you can upgrade it with your entire operating system02:32
CelesI cant wait :(02:33
cosmodadnewbie: also, it'll preserve file metadata, such as ownership. But if it's just your home, you can do cp as well.02:33
Jack_SparrowCeles: I used synaptic to remove the old one, double clicked the tars that I got from getdeb02:33
Celeswhen I type in red my pidgin convo shows in light gray and I cant read it unless I have a magnifying glass to my eye02:33
cosmodadnewbie: rsync works for sure though.02:33
CreationistNow I need help getting my monitor setup properly.  It's a 1400x1050 resolution but I can't get it set to 60Hz refresh rate.... only 50 and 51 are available.02:33
Onyxponingru: Got it now... thanks :)02:34
newbiecosmodad, all right, I have a better feeling for rsync rather than cp02:34
poningruOnyx: cool, and uh... sorry about that :)02:34
pteaguehow do i get gnome to do print screen inside a window instead of the entire desktop?  preferably i'd just prefer to have the game do the screenshots cause it can do a higher quality than what i'm currently viewing02:34
poningruCeles: pretty sure you can change that color02:34
Moumnynobody would help me?02:34
Onyxponingru:  Heh, no worries.02:34
jnascimentoCreationist: try on terminal type: dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg02:34
CelesI cant poningru :(02:35
zelrikriandonickrud: you there?02:35
Ussr1943if I have installed ubuntu to an external usb hdd, and it's not loading what might be the problem? (yes my bios supports usb boot)02:35
zil2I just installed a new gfx card, and it went to the text screen... I typed "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg-core" and it just brought up a new line and I dont think it is doing anything now02:35
zil2what should I do?02:35
Jack_Sparrowzelrikriando: I have ot seen him this afternoon02:35
Jack_SparrowMoumny: What was your question?02:35
zil2well, it asked for a password, then that was the last thing and it just did another prompy02:35
Moumny[excuse my bad english] i read the ubuntu website about my wifi-card (boardcom bcm94311mcg on a compaq notebook) and i dont understand what to do (use windows drivers or just the one in ubuntu) thank you for answer02:35
zelrikriandook Jack_Sparrow02:36
noodles12cosmodad: i meant terminal opened in gnome02:36
Jack_SparrowMoumny: Sorry, I dont know how to get the 943xx to work.. wifi not my thing02:36
Moumnyok thank you02:36
bmk789weird, i upgraded the kernel and now my webcam doesnt show up with lsusb, should i just boot the previous one?02:36
cosmodadnoodles12: just type: <your favorite image viewer> [<file name>]02:36
lucaJack_Sparrow: how do i reinstall my laptop video driver after i've done reconfigure xorg?02:37
Moumnywhere can i ask?02:37
Jack_Sparrowluca: Start by enabling the restricted drivers from the menu02:37
lucaJack_Sparrow: i don't have any apart the wireless one02:38
venzponingru: I was planning to not install xubuntu-desktop to avoid applications included to be installed02:38
Celeswheres Jangari ? :(02:38
Jack_SparrowMoumny: It is fine to ask in here..  But you will need to wait for the answer..  I would love to know it myself02:38
poningruvenz: ah gotcha02:38
cosmodadripp3r666: I just tried cp -R because it wouldn't copy hidden files for me before. It still doesn't. Are you sure this works?02:38
Celeshe always answers me ! wake up Jangari02:38
Ussr1943I know for sure grub is on my external HDD, but does it have to actually be on my internal over my MBR in order to get it to boot up?02:39
zil2ARGH :( that "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg-core" command did not do anything :( what can I do... all I see is console / text when I restart my machine (after upgrading gfx card)02:39
ripp3r666cosmodad perhaps its different on openbsd. he could use nautilus , show the hidden files , create an archive and then copy that.02:39
Moumnyi asked 2 times so i thought it will be flood02:39
ripp3r666but it works for me on obsd.02:39
Jack_Sparrowluca: Then it doesnt need one.  You can try installing your own.. but as you probably found out.. it can cause issues ..02:39
cosmodadripp3r666: this is #ubuntu. :)02:39
venzeven though my machine can run xubuntu fine, I still prefer to trim ubuntu a little more if possible and only having those that I currently need02:39
danbhfivezil2: are you sure its -core?02:39
cosmodadripp3r666: man, you should have mentioned that before.02:39
Celesthis is sparta!02:39
zil2I typed "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg-core"02:39
cosmodadripp3r666: and btw, rsync is much smoother than nautilus-hidden-files-archive action.02:40
cosmodad(for this purpose)02:40
danbhfivezil2: are you sure about the -core at the end of that command?02:40
zil2it then asked for a password, then it just came up with another prompt and displayed nothing else... so I could type another command... I have all of 2 hours experiance with linux so I can not say in detail.... but it did not seem to be doing anything (no hard drive spinning e.t.c. for 5 mins)02:40
cosmodadCeles: you could have added something new and said #sparta...02:40
zelrikriandothere is no "core" is there zil2?02:41
zil2I typed "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg-core" exactly like that.... without the "02:41
danbhfive!who > zil202:41
zil2that -core :S I have 2 hours experiance with linux! that is what someone else told me to type :S02:41
zil2sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg-core02:41
Jack_SparrowGuys & Gals ,play nice, I will be lurking around while I get dinner on the table02:42
Celesyeah :(02:42
danbhfivezil2: try sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg            so, its a simmilar command, but with -phigh and without -core02:42
cosmodaddanbhfive: did you follow what I said about cp one minute ago? Apparently, openBSD's cp does transfer hidden files too while the Linux incarnation doesn't.02:42
Jack_Sparrowzil2: when it asks for password, type yours.. it will not show up in the window.. nothing at all.. just hit enter when done02:42
cosmodaddanbhfive: just FYI.02:42
CelesJack_Sparrow, darling is it alright if I find the update for pidgin in synaptic and then go to mark all upgrades?02:42
ripp3r666cosmodad, mv always works too :)02:43
zil2ok, trying that command.... also Jack_Sparrow, I typed the password correct... (im a noob at linux, not at pcs!) it just didnt do anything02:43
danbhfivecosmodad: no I didn't follow, but interesting.  I was just going by what I read on the forums, and someone there expressly stated that cp was the wrong command to backup /home02:43
Jack_SparrowCeles: The pidgin in the repos should be the one you have installed...  but feel free...02:43

Jack_SparrowWamphyri: the 8600 is specifically named as not working with our drivers in the wiki..03:22

nickrudKiD_ChAoS:  use    defaults,umask=007,gid=46   in /etc/fstab and make sure you're in the plugdev group03:26
KiD_ChAoShow do i check if im on the plugdev group?03:27
nickrudnewbuntu22: sudo fdisk -l  will tell you if linux is seeing your all your hard drives03:27

TheFishyArchlinux or freebsd whats better?03:27
scguy318newbuntu22: when prompted, enter your user password03:27
halojen /msg ubotu flashissues03:28
nickrudKiD_ChAoS: that doesn't actually make you own the files, but you can read/write if mounted with ntfs-3g03:28
scguy318newbuntu22: sudo elevates a program to root privs provided that the user is in /etc/sudoers03:28
scguy318newbuntu22: *user invoking sudo03:28
nickrud!sudo | newbuntu22 (this will answer some questions, come back with anything you don't understand)03:28
ubotunewbuntu22 (this will answer some questions, come back with anything you don't understand): sudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information.03:28
pppoe_dudeanyone know why recordmydesktop is giving me choppy audio?03:29
KiD_ChAoSnickrud, yes im trying to copy all the files off of a windows partition to my box but i know using windows to copy another windows partition from another computer you need to take ownership of the first or you will get access violations03:29
newbuntu22thanks.. it sees dev1, dev2, and dev3  , but not my other drives03:29
ScoutHow do I choose which sound card to use??03:30
nickrudKiD_ChAoS: assuming you're writing to the ntfs drive, and it's mounted with ntfs-3g , having it mounted as I described above will give you proper permissions03:30
KiD_ChAoSok nickrud03:30
nickrudKiD_ChAoS: it sets it up so anyone in the group plugdev can write to the mounted drive03:30

LibertyShadowxxploit_ Right now I am playing with NvAGP, not sure what it means... I'll check the readme on the nvidia site04:56

lanzellothnickrud: Flannel  thx04:57
lanzellothnickrud: can't believe i didn't try that04:57
nickrudlanzelloth: it's kinda hidden04:57
Pirate_Huntersoldats: I was hoping you would tell me the command I really would prefer doing it through terminal instead of rebooting04:58
lanzellothnickrud: but that's the usual way for windows04:58
soldatsPirate_Hunter: well maybe doing "hdparm -w04:58
nickrudlanzelloth: it is ? Didn't know that04:58
Pirate_Huntersoldats: what do you mean by maybe.... are you sure that is a restarting command04:59

Marfijc, have you tried to uninstall CUPS from synaptic, then reinstall it like that?05:03
lanzellothxenthro: it can read (not sure about write) ext2/3 partitions (linux') with some driver05:03
soldatsdo yiou have it05:03
nickrudxenthro: there's a thing called fs-driver.org, it adds ext3 to windows so you can read write. I don't use it though.05:03
lanzellothxenthro: but i would suggest using a shared ntfs partition05:03
Marfixenthro, win CAN read / write to ext2/305:03
lanzellothnickrud: i want my panel to be like this http://cache.lifehacker.com/software/uploaded/2006-03-03/verticaltaskbar.jpg (behaviour wise)05:03
Marfixenthro, you need custom drivers from the site though. ive used it several times05:03
jcMarfi: I did a reinstall not an uninstall, I was going to do a "complete uninstall" and that wanted to remove ubuntu-desktop which I don't think I want to do05:04
lekremyelsewpotato u there?05:04
xenthrothese f-s drivers, will they allow me to use  them  like normal drives, say if i wanted to install a game on them?05:04
nickrudlanzelloth: you can drag your taskbar to the side, but I don't you can double up icons like that.05:04
Flanneljc: removing ubuntu-desktop is no big deal. Its a metapackage05:04
Pirate_Huntersoldats: lol forgot about that hehehe sorry its like 5 in d morning here so i will try that once tovid stops authoring05:05
Marfijc, yea, that would be bad. =) i would say to sudo apt-get update, then try to reinstall like that. sounds like the package broke half way during the install05:05
lanzellothnickrud: kde3's panel acts like that, but there's no way to use it under gnome is there?05:05
MagoonDI cannot copy paste text or transfer files when I RDP to a windows machine is that even possible?05:05
nickrudlanzelloth: no05:05
Sinisteranyone know of a scanner that will work in linux that has a adapter for scanning slides ?05:05
jcFlannel: OK so should I do a removal or a complete removal?05:05

xenthroQ: what is the difference between ext2/ext3 ?05:06
Flanneljc: do a complete removal.  That'll remove config files as well as just the binaries.05:06

ZamboliHow would anyone like to help me configure my wireless?! Because i feel like i'm in a foreig country and don't speak the language05:06
nickrudxenthro: ext3 is ext2 with journaling, it helps reduce the time it takes to startup on a bad shutdown05:06
Flanneljc: guarantee it.  You'll be putting it back in a minute anyway.05:07
Zamboliand it just doesnt want to work! arg05:07
nickrudlanzelloth: I've heard of desklets05:07
Marfijc, try to delete the packages with cups in it from /var/cache/apt/archives05:07

xenthroso ext3 is better than ext2? any serious drawbacks?05:07
MagoonDanyone know the answer to my question plz help me or else I am going to have to uninstall ubuntu05:07
Flannelxenthro: If you lose power halfway through a HDD write operation, youll be ok.05:07
Marfithen re-update, so it will download the packages05:07
nickrudjc: seconding flannel, as if he needs it05:07
jcMarfi: what will that do?05:07
Marfijc, it will let you redownload the package if the checksum was off05:08
Marfijc, there may be a command to do it, if someone wants to help =)05:08
Zamboli lanzelloth: atheros 802.11 bg05:08
xenthroalrighty. thanks for the info guys05:08

ZombieI'm working on a way to try and create my Forensic write Block at the software 'block device' level. In general, a filesystem can of course be mounted 'read only' but thats not the same thing as a forensic write block. What I am trying to do is make the block device  for the thumb drive read only as well. (usually /dev/sda1 in the case of a thumb drive.) that would prevent the kernel from mounting it as writable.) I could just mount it usin05:17
Zombieg -ro, but HAL will change it right back.05:17

compwiz18j_humphrey, on some computers it is- you have to check in the bios of the computer to see if it supports a wakeup time06:19
puffj_humphrey: Just a wild guess, but since it seems nobody here and awake knows enough to give you a real answer:  I suspect it's theoretically possible, practically impossible.06:19

puffidyllic:  Hm, well I don't know glassfish's specs fully, but most app servers, most people just usethe servlets and jsp stuff.06:27
ouellettesrmahmoud_, i think it may be because of the name of the database. my new web server wants to name all databases with _remember and the database im trying to inport ends with _nexgenwebs06:27

MagoonDi just need the command that points to the root07:36

vermaKuwanger, I installed Red Hat on the server. Its a standard installation. How do I check?07:36
xenthroMagoonD "cd /" = root07:36
Kuwangerverma: ERr, sorry, HUP, not NOHUP.  You can use "nohup" as a wrapper around a program to avoid programs receiving the signal.07:36
Frogzoo_Bingo: plug it in should be enough07:36
jootPKdor, how about you open synaptic and search awn??07:36
MagoonDi am not trying to go to the directory but put its location in a flash installer07:36
vermaThough I am using Ubuntu at home and thus question in this room :)07:37
Kuwangerverma: The simplest way to check is to login, run a program in the background, logout, then login again and see if it's still running. :)07:37
nepbabuMagoonD, alt+f2, and type "nautilus"07:37
Kuwangerverma: And, if it fails, see if the server has nohup and try again.07:37
SapI'd like to access IRC through Pidgin, how can I do so?07:37
PKdoRjoot: with or without the 3rd party repos?07:37

xenthroMagoonD sorry, you can go to the top directory by typing "cd .." also, try installing midnight commander. (sudo apt-get install mc) its a file manager for the command line. very useful07:37

ikoniasigma: fair enough, this may sound silly but is the kill switch for it enabled ?08:54
sigmaikonia: haha, first thing I tried. It is... when I disable it it disappears from lsusb (which is why I'm 100% certain) :p08:54
ikoniasigma: perfect, that is what I was just going to ask08:55

sigmaikonia: problem started after installing xserver-xgl, problem is, I don't want to remove it... or I lose compiz08:55

SrixonHello, im getting an error, about fd0 upon install?09:02
LopinCan someone send me a copy of menu.lst09:02
SrixonBuffer I/O error on device FD0, Logical Block 0 is the exact error09:02
LopinSrixon, What's the problem?09:02
LopinSrixon, That sounds like a bad hard drive...09:03
SrixonFD0 is FLoppy disk tho.09:03
Srixontho, i have no floppy.09:03
LopinSrixon, did you?09:03
Srixoni was told i should blacklist the floppy, though i do not know how :P09:03
LopinShoot...  I don't remember how to do a blacklist...09:03
* Lopin is thinking...09:04
ubotuTo blacklist a module, edit /etc/modprobe.d/my_blacklist and add « blacklist <modulename> » to the end of that list - To explicitly load modules in a specific order, list them in /etc/initramfs-tools/modules and type « sudo update-initramfs -u »09:04
Srixonrather how do i get into terminal from the ubuntu boot?09:04
pulpiewhere does irssi keep its log files?09:04

ZerO^Coo|i got a lil bit of a problem here09:05

famiconjust repartiton your drive, add a new file system, install ubuntu on that09:16
famiconthen reboot into it09:16
idefixis the chance more likely that PC's lag after midnight?09:16
SrixonLopin, Correct.09:16
LopinYeah...  There's a thing out there that does it...09:16
LopinIt's a net based installer...09:16

doktoreashello everybody09:16
LopinIt just adds grub to the windows boot loader list...09:16
ZerO^Coo|listen il tell you my config right now oky09:16
SrixonFamicon, Ubuntu doesnt work like that from what i've seen, windows cannot read the files.09:16
xenthroQ: i have an archive with many .tar.gz archives. how do i extract them all?09:16
doktoreasis there an emelf file manager style for GTK?09:16
ZerO^Coo|80 gb hdd as a boot drive with 7.10 oky09:16

Srixonfamicon, Thanks!09:17
Slartidefix: huh? what do you mean? lag in games?09:17
ZerO^Coo|so then i conected a 120 gb hdd and backed all the stuff to the new hard disk but be fore i made it a home partition the 120 gb09:17
foolkpopihow bad does it feel to starve or is there any bad feeling at all? do i always have to stay in full stomach?09:18
ZerO^Coo|now after i removed the 200 gb from my pc the home partition its telling me that i got 9 gb space left and only got 30 gb of stuff09:18
idefixSlart yes09:18
Slartfoolkpopi: do you have an ubuntu question?09:18
Srixonwell i have like 10 copies of the ubuntu cd. 7.10 i just found09:19
foolkpopiSlart yes why does ubuntu has so many users even though it is new distro?09:19
Srixonbut the UUE was great.09:19
Srixonthanks much Lopin!09:19
Slartidefix: lag depends mostly on the network.. if you use you're computer when everyone else is asleep.. then yes, i guess lag would get smaller09:19
sigmawell, I know one thing now... the problem with the bluetooth isn;t because of xserver-xgl09:19
Slartfoolkpopi: I can only speak for myself.. I use it because so many other people use it.. any more questions?09:20
Lopin_They leave?09:20
razordeadheh & he was using Azureus for IRC no less... that's definitely a clueless luser there09:20

MinifigDoes anyone know of Linux Mint?09:21
Slartfoolkpopi: I wouldn't know.. I haven't used open suse09:21
kandinskiI am mid-install of 7.10, and it asks me which kernel do I want. I have a Pentium-M (Centrino, 1.2 Ghz) from 2004. Which kernel do I pick?09:21

MinifigDid I do something wrong?09:22
MinifigThere is not really anyone there,09:22
Minifig4 people in chat.09:22
SlartMinifig: we get a lot of people asking mint-related questions which we can't answer.. that's all09:22
foolkpopiSlart but ubuntu is laggy and slow09:22
popeyfoolkpopi: this channel is for support questions, not general chatter09:23
Slartfoolkpopi: your opinion09:23
MinifigOkay, then in ubuntu, how would you access the NTFS partitions so Linux see it and can use them?09:23
SlartMinifig: use ntfs-3g.. mount the drive.. access the files09:23

hadesi screwed up my grub09:31
kandinskirepeated question, in case someone can help:09:31
kandinskiI am mid-install of 7.10, and it asks me which kernel do I want. I have a Pentium-M (Centrino, 1.2 Ghz) from 2004. Which kernel do I pick?09:32
hadesi have read the tips on how to fix it09:32
popeykandinski: what options do you have?09:32
stf_Hi. Is there a vga=*** kernel option for 1365x768?09:32
popeykandinski: linux-generic09:32
hadesI am running the live cd trying to figure out which is my old boot partition09:33
stf_Or some other kernel option I could use? Like "video=vesa:1365x768@60"?09:33
hadesi can mount that boot partition, but i need to know its /dev/sda??? how do i find that out?09:33
kandinskiand then linux-versionnumber-generic09:33
popeyhades: fdisk -l09:33
kandinskipopey, thanks09:33
Israel_stupid bind909:33
hadesPopey, i have done that, but it doesnt give me a clue which hard drive listed is at /media/disk09:34
=== hades is now known as Hadeshorn
HadeshornAlso another wierd thing is that when i try and list all my partitions in gparted, no partitions are listed.. however i can mount partitions and explore them in the live cd09:34
HadeshornPopey thanks that helps09:35
popeyexplore them and you will find boot files on the right onw09:35
zardoshtHi all, -newbie- I use dual boot xp ubuntu, I want to reinstall xp, but afraid boot.ini overwritten on ubuntu grub boot loader, whats the solution ? thanks09:36

vanchuanyone know where I can find compiz pluggins ?09:40
popeyvanchu: the package compiz-compcomm-plugins-main has some09:40
popeyvanchu: compiz-fusion-plugins-extra has more09:41
vanchuI'm actually looking for one that makes my computer look like a mac when I minimize and maximize windows09:42
Hadeshornhey if my hard drive is sda1 sda2 etc my dev for that is sda?09:42
popeyvanchu: the genie type effect?09:42
vanchuthat the one09:43
popeyvanchu: i think that's one fo the default ones09:43
popeyyou can use compizconfig-settings-manager to configure it09:43
ubotuTo enable advanced customization of desktop effects in Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy), install 'compizconfig-settings-manager'. A new option will appear in your appearance properties - See also !compiz - Help in #compiz-fusion09:43
popeyHadeshorn: if you have partitions sda1 and sda2 then yes sda is the device - or /dev/sda for the full name09:43
vanchuI couldnt find it in the options09:44
Hadeshornpopey, well it says that /dev/sda is not found or not a block device09:44
Hadeshorngrub-install /dev/sda09:44
popeyHadeshorn: but /dev/sda shows up in "fdisk -l"?09:45
xstIt seems pretty impossible to get the ATI dreiver to work in gutsy (suspend/resume doesn't work). :-(  How can I get the very latest proprietary ATI-driver by using the Restricted Manager and how can I upgrade to kernel 2.6.24 (which is apparently required for that driver to work?)?09:45
popeyvanchu: I can't find it either :) but I am sure it is in there09:45
vanchuhmm lol09:46
popeyxst: you would either need to upgrade to the development version of ubuntu (hardy) - not recommended, or compile your own kernel (also, not recommened)09:46
Hadeshornpopey yes09:46
xstpopey: So there is no other way round?09:46
popeyxst: not an easy way, no09:47
popey!hardy | xst09:47
ubotuxst: Hardy Heron is the code name for the next release of Ubuntu (8.04-LTS), due April 2008 - For more info, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardyHeron - CONSIDER IT TO BE PRE BETA (ALPHA) SOFTWARE - Discussion and support in #ubuntu+1, NOT #ubuntu09:47
sky_why's 804 not recommended?09:47
sky_because its not ready?09:47
popeyit breaks :)09:47
bod_sky_, its still in alpha ,.,.loadsa bugs09:47
sky_dang it I wish flash was fixed...09:48
popeyit is09:48
popeyenable the -proposed repo09:48
sky_stupid adobe and their weird broken installs09:48
ubotuTo install Flash see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Flash (for !Dapper and !Edgy, a recent version is available in !backports) - See also !Restricted and !Gnash - The Flash package is currently BROKEN, see « /msg ubotu FlashIssues »09:48
sky_popey: whenever I open a few youtube/flash pages suddenly flash just... dies09:49
sky_or something09:49
sky_its screwed up09:49
bod_sky_, flash works perfectly,.,. theres just no official release of a fi09:49
sky_I'd enable Gnash if it didn't mess things up09:49
HadeshornI really dont want to have to install ubuntu again, why cant grub just friggen work!09:49
alpacosky_: try installing gnash instead of flash and see what happens09:49
sky_bod_: not for me.09:49
bod_sky_ im running 64 bit09:49
xstpopey: I have tried all four alpha versions of Hardy in order to test screen/monitor configuration, but the System Settings>Monitor&Display has been broken in all of them. Very depressing. Also the Restricted Manager has been missing. :-(  Therefore: The (should be) simple task of configuring an external monitor to my laptop is completely impossible.09:49
Hadeshornsky, i used to try and use 64 bit, its more hassle then its worth.. come back to 32bit09:49
sky_alpaco, flash just doesn't load properly.09:50
popeyxst: thats a shame09:50
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.09:50
bod_what happened to the forum link?09:50
sky_but install flash from? synaptic or add/remove?09:50
sky_or from firefox, bod_ ?09:50
bod_sky_no dont do that09:50
bod_sky_dont do either of them09:50
sky_don't do what?09:50
jasonwell that flash bug would affect installation... flash would never work, it wouldn't work and then stop working09:50
popeysky_: enable the -proposed repository09:50
sky_popey, I have all repos enabled.09:50
bod_popey, is it in there09:50
shadukani installed the latest flash from adobe using a tar ball and it works fine09:51

sky_uninstall via synaptic09:51
sky_reinstall from synaptic?09:51
bod_popey, is the proposed repo in sources.list as standard?09:51
coyctecmi have been developing application with gtk# and mono. my app uses libgtkembedmoz09:51

popeybod_: how many times do you want me to say "yes"?09:52
sky_bod_, tell me a good plan?09:52
bod_sky_, just uninstall il get you the link of the fix09:52
coyctecmwhen I try to run the program it gets sigsegv09:52
jasonsky_, you cannot install flash from the repo's because of the bug, th einstallation will fail09:52
bod_popey, are you sure?09:52
sky_jason, ironically its not the installation that fails09:52
coyctecmbecause of libgtkembedmoz.so09:52
popeybod_: yes!09:52
sky_but rather the flash itself...09:52
sky_I can install flash without a hitch09:52
bod_popey, will it be in mine?09:52
popeyenable the -proposed repo09:52
alpacosomebody please check and see if IceCat is in the repos09:52
sky_Its just that when I view a flash page, it sometimes screws up...09:52
popeyalpaco: packages.ubuntu.com09:52
coyctecmif i add /usr/lib/firefox to /etc/ld.so.conf09:52
alpacopopey: thanks09:53
sky_like, y'know a youtube video? suddenly everything flash turns to grey.09:53
eternalisthow can i get libglade 2.4 on ubuntu09:53
sky_bod_, link to fix, please?09:53
eternalistapt only offers libglade 2.009:53
popeysky_: just enable the proposed repo and install flash09:53
bod_sky_its the g4 bit paragraph in blue writing you want, ok? : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=63639709:53
sky_popey: actually thats what I did...09:54
Hadeshorncan anyone explain to me why that in the live cd, all my partitions are showing up.. however when i use gparted, it states that the whole drive is unallocated???09:54
alpacobod_: uninstall flash and install gnash from synaptic, it might fix your problem09:54
Hadeshornis there some disk tool i can use where it looks at the drive and fixes this issue??09:54
coyctecmit gets sigsegv, but if I just type export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/firefox;
