h-towni've done that and I had massive problems, ubuntu won't recognize the old vista partition, even though i've used gparted to format it properly00:40
Invisible_Ubuntigenii, that is why I was advising not to because its not idea especially if he compiles and has problems later on ;P00:40
h-townwould my best bet be to install ubuntu, and then vista?00:41
Invisible_Ubuntibrb must reboot00:41

Pie-rateDoes AOL dialup require some kind of software to connect? I'm helping a neighbor set up an ubuntu box, they have AOL dialup (yeah, it's the only feasable connection here), i tested the modem with a free dialup service and it worked. AOL isn't, however. the modem makes its annoying noises, and then the tx/rx lights flash a little, and then all the lights go off and it disconnects. I was thinking it either got the wrong login info or it n00:50

bendy21Hi there everyone, does 7.10 Server provide a way to setup software RAID on disks during the setup phase? I've hunted around and can't find any howto's on this.01:48
Odd-rationaleiDivine_: Play around, have fun, and don't be afraid to try new things. The ubuntuforums.org is a good place to start.01:49
reconAshfire908: i dunno, but a workaround could be to pipe the files to sed, and remove everything that has .bz2 onit.01:49
iDivine_I would like to know, How to download things. Like simple programs I had on my old windows. And I would also like to know if there are any plug-ins..01:49
putnumhas anybody ran windows xp inside vmware server on ubuntu?01:49
Ashfire908bendy21, i think you tell it to format a patition with "raid" or something like that01:49
zelrikriandoiDivine_: System > Administration > Synaptic package manager01:49
nickrudiDivine_: you will probably need to replace those windows apps with linux apps, see the link below01:49
nickrud!equivalents | iDivine_01:50
ubotuiDivine_: A comprehensive list of of Windows-equivalent applications in Linux can be found at http://www.linuxrsp.ru/win-lin-soft/table-eng.html and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WhatWindowsUsersWant01:50

zelrikriandoiDivine_: then Search > " My Software "01:50
norviDivine_: and some "simple" programs aren't really that simple01:50
Ashfire908bendy21, and i think it then gives you a screen to setup the raid, but i've never tried it because my server has hardware raid01:50

Pie-ratei would expect WINE to fail at that, like it normally does with everything else01:56
jackballzack3: Nope, XP and Ubuntu01:56
geniitimandtom: Unix was and still is a commercial OS developed by AT&T. Linux is a unix-like OS but no lineage to it. FreeBSD or NetBSD et al are more of a Unix heritage01:56

nemilarBoden: typically the install will be: tar zxfv tarball.tar.gz ; cd tarball/ ; ./configure ; make ; make install02:12
Bodenalright, let me go look...02:12
RB2I'm migrating all of my data from my old w2k box. No problems mounting remotely via smb, however I think last time it failed partway through because of a filename. Can I use rsync to sync the two up?02:12
nemilarBoden: but the package management system won't know that it's installed, and installing from source is complex and almost always not necessary02:12
jmworxCan someone help me fix my desktop after de-installing the desktop effects.02:12
andresjis there a way to make ubuntu, when updating a package, download only the difference between the old version and the new one, instead of downloading it all again?02:12
nickrudandresj: no02:13
Bodennemilar: so most sites that i can download tarballs from i can also find repo addresses @?02:13
RyuhoMy tablet (motion computing M1400) hotkey does not show up on: showkey, acpid, or xev. I know it works (it works under default windows install) is there no way to use this key in ubuntu?02:13
jmworxWhen I log in, I get no window manager at all and need to start it manually (blind from a white xterm) every time02:13
nemilarBoden: what are you trying to install?   and if at all available, install from the .deb package02:13
crxyemI like checkinstall vs just using make install02:13
badkittycrxyem: Good point02:13
nemilaryeah checkinstall is preferable02:13
jmworx(I'm running Gusty BTW)02:14
Siph0nneone know what plugin i need to view the finance.google.com charts? :)02:14
andresjnickrud: oh... I say it because I'm updating KDE 4.0.0 to 4.0.1 and its a lot :)02:14
nemilarbut I'm sure Boden doesn't even have build-essential installed so...02:14
nemilarSiph0n: flash non-free02:14
Bodennemilar: right now it's something called cdrtools. im not sure if i need it anymore though. i just wanted to know in general for things that arent in the package managers02:14
nickrudandresj: yeah, there's been talk about that diff update for a long time (pre ubuntu), but no action.02:14
ally_oxoooxhey, quick question. How do you clear logs in ubuntu?02:14
nemilarBoden: avoid compiling from source if at all possible, is my recommendation02:15
andresjnickrud: gentoo has it :)02:15
Siph0nnemilar, i have flashplugin-nonfree installed... so Synaptic says anyway....02:15
nickrudandresj: diff's of source is much easier than diffs of binaries02:15
Bodennemilar: i'd rather avoid it too. since it seems to be over my head at the moment. any idea on the sound issue?02:15
zetherooI fresly install Ubuntu Gutsy on a laptop and for some reason the Ubuntu boot up screen with the progress bar never shows up.... its black until I get to the login screen.... why is this?02:15
andresjnickrud: I guess :)02:16
nemilarSiph0n: is flash elsewhere broken?02:16
thechrisanyone know how to force MDADM to re-add a device even though it has some bad blocks?02:16
nickrudzetheroo: try editing /etc/usplash.conf if it isn't your monitor's native resolution (one fix that works for some problems)02:16
Siph0nnope.... i went on lge.com and the flash plays02:16
nemilarzetheroo: that's just a bug, it'll be fixed in the next release of ubuntu02:16
ally_oxoooxhey, quick question. How do you clear logs in ubuntu?02:16
nemilarally_oxooox: you mean the logs in /var/log ?02:16
norvzetheroo: is that the only problem?02:17
iDivine_Umm, I was wondering, How do I add cool affects and features to Ubuntu02:17
ally_oxoooxnemilar i think so. are there any other logs?02:17

nickrudheh, my gutsy was problem free (except for usplash)  zetheroo yes02:17
nemilarally_oxooox: /var/log is where the system logs are kept, but individual user apps might record things to user's home directories, I suppose02:17
ally_oxoooxnemilar like traffic logs, terminal, etc02:17
zetheroonorv: yes...02:17

meoblast001hello.... im trying to copy the contents of the Ubuntu 7.10 disk onto a flash drive and i get a permissions error, how do i fix this, ive had this problem on Ubuntu and Fedora02:17
nickrudzetheroo: gksudo gedit that is, don't use sudo with gui programs02:17
nemilarally_oxooox: apache logs are kept in /var/log/apache[2] by default02:18
zetheroonickrud: ok02:18
ally_oxoooxnemilar are there any logs that a user should delete for security purposes?02:18
meoblast001iDivine_: install compiz-fusion and compizconfig02:18
nemilarally_oxooox: the system logger will rotate logs automatically so they don't take up too much space02:18
kamikazehai02:18
ally_oxoooxoh okay thanks nemilar02:18
iDivine_Umm, I don't think I have enough ram for Compiz fusion.02:18
nemilarally_oxooox: not really... nothing truly sensitive is logged, and anything that's borderline is read-only by root02:18
tigraniDivine_: how much do you have? and video ram02:18
ally_oxoooxcool02:19
iDivine_I'm not quite sure about video, But I think ram I have around 512?...02:19
iDivine_I've heard I have a bad video card as well..02:19
norvzetheroo: I doubt it's a major problem then02:19
meoblast001Error "Operation not permitted" while copying "/media/Ubu...86/ubuntu".02:19
meoblast001what does that mean?02:19
nemilarmeoblast001: you don't have write permissions to the destination, so either a) the device is mounted read-only, or b) you can try as root02:20
iDivine_I'm not quite sure about video, But I think ram I have around 512?...02:20
nemilariDivine_: the 'free' command will tell you how much ram you have02:20
tigraniDivine_: well I had a 512 RAM and a 32mb gfx card, it worked pretty good, just turn off the fancy stuff02:20
iDivine_k02:20
meoblast001nemilar: i tried as root when i was on my fedora machine and it did the same thing02:20
nemilarmeoblast001: what type of media is the destination?  external HDD?02:20
iDivine_Where under free?02:20
meoblast001nemilar: fat16 USB flash drive02:21
nemilariDivine_: on the "Mem:" line, the "total" column02:21
tigraniDivine_: Under free...02:21

zetheroonickrud: ok I changed it to 1280 x 800 from 1280 x 102402:22
nickrudzetheroo: try rebooting, see if the splash screen works now02:22
nepbabuanabelle, hi02:22
nickrudzetheroo: if it doesn't, you can turn off the splash and see the text boot (what I did)02:22
zetheroonickrud: still black02:22
iDivine_Do I, 512 RAM good enough for Compiz - fusion?02:22
nemilariDivine_: compiz puts more strain on your video card and processor than it does your RAM, but 512 is more than enough RAM yeah02:22

eko_hermiyantoHow I can read UDF cd in Ubuntu?03:48
midgetnatnepbabu: yup it says it cannot connect to it... when i restart the daemon, it says something about several smtps... but they are removed... apt-get removed them before03:49
eko_hermiyantoI have searched through google but found no solution03:49
Starnestommycclampblues: the program itself or the user config settings?03:49
geniicclampblues: Why not ask in #xubuntu ?03:49
nepbabueko_hermiyanto, iso9660 is the option your after03:49
nepbabucclampblues, /usr/lib/firefox03:49
cclampbluesspecifically the plugin folder? how can i search in thunar?03:49
eko_hermiyantonepbabu, yes, but, unfortunately our art department created the cd in this format03:49
nepbabueko_hermiyanto, i said use that option03:49
cclampbluesalso... what is a .so file?03:50
eko_hermiyantonepbabu, in mount?03:50
nepbabucclampblues, it's a library03:50
Starnestommycclampblues: .so files are shared libraries03:50

cclampbluesthanks nepbabu. but ive been there and done that. ive followed the directiions. installed the flash plugin. and it doesnt work. i was told i can drag and drop the uncompressed file in firefox's plugin folder.... would that be the .so filee?03:52
papuccino1Woops, got disconnected could someone answer me again.03:52
IndyGunFreakpapuccino1: splash, i believe, is the screen after you sign in03:52
papuccino1Thanks for the answer Indy.03:53
Starnestommypapuccino1: it's both the login screen and the screen before the login screen pops up03:53
nepbabucclampblues, copy over libflashplayer.so and flashplayer.xpt to your ~/.mozilla/plugins03:53

BIOSboilerjust u like Gnome better than kde03:55
damnweirdoI think I didn't properly burn the iso for my LIVE CD.03:55
tinin_Leppy I hope it works, if not just try to follow the eeror msg fro synaptic apt-get or aptitude03:55
IndyGunFreakBIOSboiler: to many reasons to list.. but gnome over kde is one... yes03:55
nepbabuzappitelli17, in that case i can't help you.03:55
BIOSboilerthis dude at work told me that GNOME was for Newbies03:55
damnweirdowhen I look at the CD, I only see one iso image file on the cd.03:55
Noogensimp: i think it's adding irqpoll to boot option or something to do with turning on raid in the bios03:55
zappitelli17do you know where I can get help?03:55
nepbabuBIOSboiler, no it's not.03:55
IndyGunFreakBIOSboiler: that dude is an idiot, Gnome/Kubuntu/Xfce they all do the same thing, they just look different while doing it.03:56
nepbabuBIOSboiler, use it yourself first n see it first hand.03:56
BIOSboileri have03:56
jimmygoonBIOSboiler, I would agree with others, that person was an idiot03:56
BIOSboileri like gnome03:56
jimmygoonBIOSboiler, though KDE is often cited as being more for powerusers or people that want easy access to tweak everything03:56
NW2190Can anyone help me mount a file off of another linux computer?03:56
nepbabuBIOSboiler, so if you like it. then why listen to some wannabies?03:57
damnweirdocan anyone tell me if there's a special way of burning iso image file to a bootable cd?03:57
jimmygoonNW2190, "mount" a file?03:57
BIOSboilerits j8ust all the hard core linux guys i know laugh at me when i told them i like gnome they said it was for Newbies only03:57
jimmygoonNW2190, what do you mean?03:57
NW2190sorry03:57
Invisible_UbuntiTrying to change my usplash Grub Splash screen but for some reason its not working.  I did use the Gnome GUI Splash screen manager and now I'm unable to change it anymore by replacing the file that is located in /usr/lib/usplash anymore any idea's on what to do?03:57
IndyGunFreakdamnweirdo: 1.. burn it slow, but google "How to burn an ISO" the first link is really good.03:57
Flanneldamnweirdo: just make sure you burn the image, not the file itself.  If you see an iso file on the CD, its wrong03:57
NW2190I mean a directory off of a computer on my local network03:57
jimmygoonBIOSboiler, "hardcore" linux guys? Sounds like fluxbox/kde/etc fanbois...03:57
DVS01NW2190: depends on the os of the other pc. what os is it?03:57
=== son-son is now known as Ce_eXeMpHe
nepbabuBIOSboiler, it's the first point contact for most linux users. so they might think it's for newbies03:57
jimmygoonNW2190, nautilus has built in support for a lot of that sort of thing03:57
damnweirdoflannel, that what I thought. THX03:57

jimmygoonBIOSboiler, hm, well, thats different than linux but meh, w/e. As far as I'm concerned I'm a hardcore GNOME user and happy with that03:58
nepbabuBIOSboiler, i've used minix in the past. does that make me uber?03:58
Invisible_UbuntiBIOSboiler, its all personal choice there is no GUI that is for newbies only03:58
jimmygoonNW2190, you could look at FUSE/FUSEFS to see if it will mount networked transparently... I'm not sure it will :/03:58
zappitelli17how do I look up what my wireless card's interface is?03:58
brandon__i cannot in stall my linksys wireless adapter03:58
jimmygoon!fuse | NW219003:59
ubotuNW2190: FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) is a !kernel driver that allows non-root users to create their own filesystems. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filesystem_in_Userspace for more on FUSE.  Some examples of filesystems that use FUSE are !ntfs-3g, sshfs and isofs. A full list of Filesystems that use FUSE is here:  http://fuse.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/FileSystems03:59
DVS01NW2190: easiest way imo is sshfs. get sshfs, and you can then connect via ssh to another system and mount its filesystem to yours03:59
brandon__can some one help me03:59
papuccino1Hey guys, Quick question: What could I use to make an NFO and a SFV file in Ubuntu.03:59
DVS01NW2190: that or look up nfs. you can also use samba, but thats typically for windows integration03:59
nepbabu!ask | Brandon_03:59

geniicclampblues: /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/03:59
NW2190DVS01: K thanks I'll try to look at that03:59
Invisible_Ubuntipapuccino1, NFO is a txt file renamed to NFO for people that use "Warez" while NFO is a windows file containing system information03:59
brandon__lol k03:59
DVS01sshfs is FUSE based, so you can mount as a regular user, without having to be root03:59
DVS01NW2190: example.. mkdir ~/otherpc ; sshfs user@someotherpc.net:/path/to/somewhere ~/otherpc04:00
Invisible_Ubuntipapuccino1, SFV if I remember right is a file checksum for people that download a RAR/TAR/ZIP file so look at your corresponding zip/rar program04:00
papuccino1I see. Thanks for the NFO information. So I just write in a simple text editor, rename the extension ".nfo" and it would be an NFO file? Correct?04:00
brandon__Hey is there any one who now how to make the desktop cube transparent?04:00
Invisible_UbuntiYes04:00
DVS01brandon__, run ccsm, it will let you configure compiz04:01
papuccino1Thanks Invisible.04:01

TKingdomInvisible_Ubunti, describe it real quick and someone might be able to help04:02
Invisible_Ubunticitm, load your wireless network search tool, unless you have it load at startup you have to reconnect everytime04:02
DVS01brandon__: if that doenst exist, you may have to install it thru synaptic package manager04:02

TKingdomIt happens :)04:02
citmnetwork manager seems to load at startup and connect to the network automatically04:02
moe_yo04:02
papuccino1Yes, I know it's for file verification purposes. In windows, I would select all the RAR's (I would divide a big file into small rar files) and then rightclick selecting create SFV file in the shell menu.04:03
papuccino1A different program did that process. Not WinRar.04:03
BIOSboilergdesklets04:03
Invisible_Ubunticitm, I know on my laptop I use Kubuntu and I had to manually startup the wireless app to connect it wouldn't do it on startup04:03
heartsbloodif I want to search for something from console what's the most effect tool to do that?04:03
brandon__ya i got that stuff but cant rilly find it04:03
nepbabuheartsblood, find04:04
citmthanks Invisible_Ubunti. Seems to startup automatically in gnome - i'd install kubuntu, which i want to, but i cnat get on the net on it.04:04
citmlol04:04
Invisible_Ubuntipapuccino1, it depends on what program your using to make the rar as to how to make the SVF file is what I'm hinting at.. if you are making RAR's then consult the --help menu of the rar consolde command04:04
moe_any of u dudes can help me out with this it's me first time useing linux i want to use Beryl so i can download a dock like the one i had in mac04:04

Invisible_UbuntiTKingdom, yes, I started out by manually replacing the file in /usr/lib/usplash then I read somewhere to use the GUI and then that stopped switching and its stuck on one splash I don't want04:05
TKingdomSame exact thing happened to me yesterday04:05

nepbabuheartsblood, ok04:06
eko_hermiyantoBIOSboiler, the different is Windows is Windows and ReactOS is only an operating system which created to act like Windows(that's same with Unix and Linux)04:06
putnumwell i mean not see the gui04:06
geniiBIOSboiler: Much. The core code is not the same. Also BSD retains much in the way of traditional unix filesystem structures04:06
Invisible_Ubuntinepbabu, I got this Fingerprint Splash one and its messed up the part that moves to show progress is all messed up so I went to change it and used the GUI manager now the GUI won't change it and neither will command line04:06

Invisible_Ubuntinepbabu, did all that :)04:07
geniiBIOSboiler: Binaries for one will not work on the other. Although bsd has a linux binary compatability feature, last i saw it supported kernel 2.4 binaries.04:08
schweppsputnum, either use screen, '&' at the prompt, run it in the initscripts, etc04:08
Dimitreehow can i update my repositorys ? I have enabled all kinds of repositorys except source but when i search for Xchat it only finds 1 result oposed to the two results i got before reinstalling ubuntu ?04:08

schweppsdozens of different solutions04:08
brandon__k thx guys04:08
TKingdomInvisible_Ubunti:  I  had the same symptoms, I got tired of looking how to get it back to normal but I just ended up reinstalling04:08
Noogenputnum: if you start a virtual machine then it is run in the background until you stop it or shutdown04:08
Invisible_Ubuntinepbabu, added vga=791 to the menu.lst file replaced the file in /usr/lib/usplash and recreated the link04:08
BIOSboilerdoes anyone in hear like freebsd?04:08
papuccino1Ok, downloaded the rar program from the Add/Remove menu. What's the program called, can't find it in the menus nor can I launch it in the alt+f2 process.04:08
cclampbluesok. so here goes again. I am trying to install flash plugin for firefox. i have attempted to do it through firefox and it always failed. i installed it through the add/remove programs option. i start firefox and  it says i still need to install the plugin. only now if i click the link to do so in firefox it says that it is already installed. i have the tar.gz uncompressed on my desktop ---dragging and dropping as was suggested to me doe04:08
nepbabuInvisible_Ubunti, try vga=ask and set the lowest one after scan04:08
Noogenputnum: or you can set it up to start individual vm in the startup script04:08
Invisible_Ubuntinepbabu, thanks anyways.. think its just being a bit weird right now :)04:08
StarnestommyBIOSboiler: I've used it in vm's before04:09
bruenigpapuccino1, are you talking about unrar?04:09
schweppsBIOSboiler, sure. i also like long walks on the beach and champagne04:09
putnumok and does anybody know if vbox works seamlessly like vmware does? And how many concurrent sessions does it allow ?04:09
TKingdomInstall compiz-fusion and see if that takes it back to normal.04:09
putnumi know vmware only allows 304:09
mahmoud_Jewsus_: in Linux if you delete a file, its deleted .. the "delete" button is a move to trash not delete.04:09
do0zmani istalled the driver i was prompted to by the system and now i hav no visual04:09
Noogenputnum: what do you mean 3?04:09
do0zmanwhat do i do to bring it back?04:09
papuccino1No04:09
Starnestommydo0zman: try disablibng usplash04:09
Starnestommy*disabling04:10
papuccino1The program just says "Rar"04:10
Noogeni run vmware server and i don't see a limit04:10
Invisible_UbuntiTKingdom, might have to do that. Think one of the settings are messed up in the profile of mine to hold it to the splash screen it is now just don't know where else to look04:10
yurimxpxmanI just deleted /dev/null. is there any way to get it back?04:10
schweppsyurimxpxman, probably best to reboot04:10
do0zmanhow would i do that i booted into recovery mode04:10
papuccino1Rar: Compression Uncompression tool. That's all it says.04:10
putnumvmware (from what i have read) only allows you to have 3 concurrent rdp sessions open at a time04:10
karlNYyurimxpxman: man /dev/null --- shows you commands to restore /dev/null at the bottom of the manpage.04:10
putnumnoogen: really?04:10
bruenigpapuccino1, ok so that is probably unrar04:10
Noogenyeah, what kind of limit are you talking about?04:10
schweppsdo0zman, by visual, you mean X11?04:10
Jewsus_mahmoud_ if I specifically choose "Move to Trash" it still does not show up in the trash04:10
yurimxpxmankarlNY: cool. Thanks04:10
karlNYyurimxpxman: hang on I lied04:11
schweppsdo0zman, you could edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and use the vesa driver, for example04:11
zcat[1]sudo mknod c 1 3 /dev/null   or something like that?04:11
BIOSboilerschwepps what does that mean?04:11
karlNYyurimxpxman: if that doesn't show it, try    man /dev/zero04:11
mahmoud_Jewsus_ : is that a NTFS partition?04:11
do0zmanif i use the regular boot(not recovery) i get a blank screen04:11
putnumso you can open notepad,photoshop,itunes and ie all at the sametime?   and are you running them seamlessly or in the vm console04:11

BertoHi - I have a Live Free or Die Hard DVD that wouldn't play in linux on VLC or Totem, but it DID play in Windows VLC.  Other DVDs work in Ubuntu.  What could be the issue?05:15

Audio_1here is my problem. i have the 32 bit 7.10 installed now. i want to install the 64 bit version. so i made a cd and all that jazz. i boot with the cd and i select install; now it loads up then the screen goes blank for a minuet or so. i presume it is trying to detect my graphics card because it then pops up with a low settings box, with options to select the resolution. so i select everything and click on continue. now it goes to a black s06:04

tomdwhen I use firefox and play something with the flash plugin, I then can't play any files with another app until I close the tab that has the flash plugin opened, or kill firefox... happens with other programs too.06:12
JohnMMspk, service order is controlled in /etc/rcx.d06:12

spkI'm trying to figure out how to make it run later during bottup06:24
tomdmib_hoimx7d7: re-examine your partitioning scheme... you're logical partition numbers changed and now you have to reconfigure grub or edit fstab or something rather.06:24
WGGMkspk: hamachi doesnt need you to have an IP to get its own IP06:24
spksluggo:  true, but I'm asking it to login as well06:24
spkand go online06:25
sluggospk: try  this update-rc.d -f hamachi remove06:25
tomdmib_hoimx7d7: i.e. if you removed /dev/hda6 /dev/hda7 may become the new /dev/hda606:25
karlNYmib_hoimx7d7: I like tomd's re-configure grub idea -- as long as you're backing everything up like you said you were.06:25
sluggospk: thenn update-rc.d hamachi start 99 2 3 4 5 . stop 99 0 1 6  this will make start later in boot process06:25
WGGMkspk: not to barge in, but make a script and put it into rc.local, that should work06:25

mib_hoimx7d7amenado: it is the entry i just made06:52
amenadomib_hoimx7d7-> you may have a vmlinuz or initrd image in /boot but if they are the wrong kind unbootable ones, will not work06:52
astro76!gksu | cvd06:52
ubotucvd: If you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)06:52

xnujust ubuntu07:08
xnulol07:09
kavikfragged[away] how should i connect the harddrive to install ubuntu on it? i had it on slave....07:09
fragged[away]kavik, yes, unless you pass the entire disc to RAM they are relatively slow... like if you leave your system idle, even opening a menu can take 2-3 seconds while CD spins up07:09
bluefoxxkavik, generaly, depending on your parts, if you have a good cddive, then not so slow, but still slower than a desktop install07:09
mib_hoimx7d7amenado: the actual partitino is sda3 so that makes sense07:09
amenadomib_hoimx7d7-> go and do it, assuming your /boot/initrd and /boot/vmlinuz are good ones07:09
kavikbluefoxx should i connect my harddrive that i wish to install ubuntu onto, in slave mode? or master?07:10
fragged[away]bluefoxx, ALL CD drives are slow... afaik CDs run at ~9mb/s, hard drives run at ~60+mb/s07:10

xnuin slave if its the slave07:10

bluefoxxkavik, try cable select07:10
kavikbluefoxx what's cable select?07:10
WGGMkOk, so I narrowed my problem down to ALSA. OSS seems to work fine, as long as im only using it 1 application of course. But when using ALSA, after 1 thing that requires sound (IE: 1 full song, 1 message on pidgin, 1 error dialog box) it just doesnt work after that. I have also tried opening sound preferences and using the "Test" button, which will work, but after hitting OK on the small dialog box, and trying to Test it again (even the same one) it will NOT wor07:11

bluefoxxkavik, the default setting harddrivees come in, usually the best choice if your not that farmilliar with hardwarez[but its what i specialize in]07:11

karlNYmib_hoimx7d7: but if you extended ubutnu over a partition you don't care for, you should be able to just do what you did, reinstall grub, make sure it's pointing to the correct partition and once all is lined up in menu.lst and /etc/fstab, you should be fine07:27

mib_hoimx7d7whats the command to create a new initrd?09:22
Kevin`Peanut you can, yes, if you have grub on the host filesystem09:22
Kevin`Peanut otherwise mount -o bind /dev /mnt/chroot/dev09:22
ogreKevin`:  tyvm09:22

Kevin`I find it hard to believe there are people stupid enough to be spammers/trolls09:26

mhaOn a 7.10 system my RAID-1 resync speeds goes from 40MB/s on a 2.6.17 to 6MB/s and VERY unresponsitive system with a 2.6.22 (gusty stock) or 2.6.24 (hardy stock).09:27
mhaQuite modern computer, P4 3.06GHz, SATA-drives, ICH7 chipsets etc.09:27
FC|Kaseiits nice that you can ignore people09:28
elkbuntuFC|Kasei, yeah, but doesnt mean you should have to09:28
compwiz18its nice we keep ops around to get rid of them too :) (btw, thanks elkbuntu)09:28
Kevin`mha is the disk itself working at the proper speed? maybe dma got disabled or something sillt09:28
=== rat32 is now known as Palace_Chan
FC|Kaseiright^^09:28
PengIs it possible to get Ubuntu to stop screwing with my /etc/resolv.conf?09:29
mhaKevin`: afaik DMA cannot be set on SATA drives (hdparm dosen't have the field). However read/write speeds to the single discs are seemingly having good performance on both 2.6.{17,22}.09:29
PengI don't want to use the prepend-hosts or whatever thing because I have comments in it.09:29
mhaKevin`: when the kernel is upgraded, the raid resync sucks. :)09:29
Kevin`mha make 2.6.24 stock and report to lkml09:29
NoiseFreeI'm tyring to find live cd ubuntu. Is this the regular desktop cd? or ..?09:29
compwiz18Peng: if you have your heart set on keeping it the way it is: sudo chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf will make it unwritable to ANYTHING (and that includes root) sudo chattr -i /etc/resolv.conf will undo it, make it root writable again09:30
mhaKevin`: was my next move unless I got some other tip/feedback yes.09:30
Kevin`mha I didn't have this problem with raid5, though, on my system09:30
