brianhDescentIntoMadne: What's problem00:10
DescentIntoMadne@BrianH - sorry had to chenge nick as I am troubleshooting wireless prob00:11
crimsunbod_: because the 'list' operation pulls from /proc/asound/cards, which exposes the driver [source code]-specific string for his family and codec.00:11
maihemnoolness: look for packages with nvidia in their name and see what the highest versioned one is. If it is higher than the version you're using then perhaps best to leave it as is00:11

Or are you tryint to make it run and appear on the remote? In that case  You may need to go to the remote vox and use a 'xhost +localhost' command. thats a X security feature you may be having problems with01:02

nickrudjosiah: it should be sufficent, since it replaces 2 . What requires it?01:31

_Marek_nickrud, do you have 4311 rev 01?01:31
desertcJack_Sparrow: Uplink, computer simulator video game.  Thanks though.01:31
Peloraichlea, you'll have to register with the network to join then , not a problem  type  /msg nickserv help register and follow the instructions01:31
th0rwil_: it isn't the extension that matters...the first line has to be #!/bin/sh01:32
josiahnickrud: I didnt know... was just making sure I had everything I would need :)01:32
nickrudwil_: linux doesn't use extensions like that;  you would type   chmod u+x /path/to/file  to make it executable01:32
maximilionHi Jack_Sparrow :) All threads pointed to the Preference menu ... it's in Admin/Login Windows :)01:32

desertcwil_:  then, run the script by typing the path and file name, or  " ./filename " instead.  Most people use .sh as a common script "file extension", although it is unnecessary, technically.01:33
Jack_Sparrowth0r: PM please01:33
Sunman hi - i have a huge problem with ubuntu. it froze and upon restart it threw out "Error 16: inconsistent filesystem". None o fthe kernels, or recovery modes work. I know a solution would be to run fsck but I cant even load from a liveCD01:34
_Marek_nickrud, so it seems we just need to install 2.6.24 to gain native support01:34
desertcSunman: why can you not boot from a liveCD ?01:34
nickrud_Marek_: I'm fine with using a blob for now, to maintain kernel compatiblitiy01:34
Tredje0yeseany: Hey, you there? I setup http://dreamsindigital.org/logs01:34
Sunmandesertc: I have no idea. it loads for a while and then just gives me a blinking cursor01:34
maximilionJack_Sparrow: I now have a decent OSX Tiger style going... will perfect it tomorrow :)01:35
_Marek_nickrud, i wonder if there is any way to install 2.6.24 from source while preserving most settings from default gutsy 2.6.22 and then have it thrown out if a newer kernel arrives01:35
PeloSunman, consider this may be hardware related01:35
Tredje0yeIt contains dmesg, kern, syslog, messages, debug, and mii-tool spew01:35
seanyTredje0ye: reading...01:35
desertcSunman: then it is most likely a hardware issue, since the liveCD does not touch your hard drive installation01:35
nickrud!info kernel-package | _Marek_01:35

Tredje0yeseany: tnx ^^;;01:35
smallfoot-when i try to update, it say hash mismatch01:35
wil_ok, I put the #!/bin/sh as the first line... renamed it to .sh, and typed chmod u+x normal.sh whilst in the correct directory.... it does a new line with no feedback. when I run the .sh file, it opens in archive manager and comes up with a error :(01:36
seanyTredje0ye: you need to change the permissions on those fles01:36
Sunmanwhat hardware issue would cause such an error?01:36
Pelofred9, search for gcc and install any -dev related packages01:36

wil_desertc: ahh :( just trying to follow advice01:37

wil_desertc, I went to terminal and when I type normal.sh it just says command not found :(01:41

oboy03if there is a problem with ubuntu does that mean the whole OS is done?01:53
fribuntuCan someone tell me, when exactly the .profile file is interpreted? I am trying to set the locale-variables on a per-user basis, but I always end up with the system defaults, even when I reboot the machine!01:53

desertcfrancisco: What did it say when it would not let you unmount??  that's unnecessary to do sudo just to change disks!01:53
Dr_willisoboy03,  i imagine it depends on the exact problem01:53
Dr_willisoboy03,  you rarely need to do a reformat.. If you follow proper procedure01:54
franciscoit dint say anything.. just wouldent work01:54

Pelooboy03, you can reformat just the windows partition you do not need to reformat the whole hdd,01:54
oboy03bec yesterday i was having problems with updates wihich forced me to reformat ubuntu01:54

putnumsudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop doesn't work01:54
geniitinman: The problem is whatever app needs the dependencies installed before itself so that all the groundwork is laid for it to operate. There is no real way to separate out the dependencies using apt-get or sohe/apt/archives. But what might work is to get a list of the dependencies find their .deb packagenames and then use perhaps wget or ftp or whatever to download them separately at other times into /var/cac01:54
Dr_willisoboy03,  i imagine there was some easier fix.01:54
oboy03so that means i still dont know how to troubleshoot :)01:54

sveakexOdd-rationale: my internet is fast enough, i have done a few arch and gentoo installs02:01
aroonianyone know how to fix this: Couldn't load Perl module Image::Magick.  Images will be skipped02:01
Odd-rationalesveakex: Once installation is finished, it is no smaller than an ordinary installation. If you already have the cd, use it.02:02
oboy03so you mean i dont even have to choose anything in software sources?02:02
nickrudSunman: they are all your hard disk. sda1 is the partition where linux is installed, sda2 is a container for logical partitions, and sda5 is the partition that is used for memory swap. Only the first needs fscking02:02
ErealzI just maid a link on my desktop  and id like to to add the programs icon where might I find it?02:02
oboy03because i chose iportant security updates02:02
oboy03then it said i should update these, and i updated02:02
Odd-rationalesveakex: The live or alt cd, that is02:02
sveakexOdd-rationale: so it downloads all packages and installs? the turn out is the same?02:02
lilg111111does anybody know how to get the sd card reader to work in gusty02:02
PaTeeLAErealz: in the usr/bin02:02
Jack_Sparrowoboy03: Have you made any changes to your sources.list02:03
nickrudoboy03: yes. Those are the updates I'm talking about. I was (indirectly) cautioning against updates from other sources, which is the main cause of the os breaking02:03
Odd-rationalesveakex: Yes. I thought it would be smaller two when I first used it.02:03
Joelitonickrud: Nice, thanks :p02:03
PaTeeLAErealz: sry /usr/share/icons?02:03
Jack_Sparrowlilg111111: THe plug in ones almost all work, the built in ones are more hit and miss02:03
oboy03no changes in source.list02:03
nickrudoboy03: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Training has a book that will tell you much of what you need to know02:03
dark_Harmonicslilg1111 I've had lots of problems getting the built in ones working too02:03
sveakexOdd-rationale: i thought it was an empty installation where i got to install everything02:04
daraknorI've attempted to use XGL and AIGLX on 7.10 but I still don't have direct rendering with either intel or i810 drivers. I've read a number of guides and I'm rather stuck. Any suggestions or methods of confirming that AIGLX was loaded properly?02:04
Odd-rationalesveakex: The only advantage is that once installed, you don't need to upgrade because it already downloaded the latest packages.02:04
Jack_Sparrownickrud: I just checked that out..  something new... and useful02:04
dark_Harmonicsi tried on a nc6000 to get the card reader to activate and followed the guides i could find without any positive results02:04
sveakexOdd-rationale: well that is a very good advantage :)02:04
nickrudJack_Sparrow: yeah, I ran across it a couple days ago. Read a bit, didn't see any glaring errors02:04
lilg111111jack sparrow and Dark harmonics should i give it up02:04
Odd-rationalesveakex: It *can* do that if you specify "CLI" in boot up before install. But so can the alt cd.02:04
oboy03so what do u usually guys do with ubuntu?02:04
dark_Harmonicsgive a search for your model type and that card reader lilg111102:05
oboy03just as a desktop? server? gaming?02:05
dark_Harmonicsthere might be something model specific02:05
dark_Harmonicsbut i wouldnt waste too much patience on it02:05
Jack_Sparrowlilg111111: I did, I spent $9 for one that does something like 20 dif cards02:05
desertcJack_Sparrow: that's really quite a gift from canonical, huh?02:05
dark_Harmonicsthat cheap Jack?02:05
Odd-rationaleoboy03: I use Linux on my tablet pc which I use for school.02:05
sveakexOdd-rationale: but the alt cds packages are 4-5 months older ;)02:05
Jack_Sparrowdesertc: YEp02:05
nickrudoboy03: I do all my work on it. Run a couple local servers (like web and mysql) . And use a couple servers out there that use debian. I keep it all in the family :)02:05
_elementaloboy03 Web development and network administration on the lappy, assorted servers on the towers02:05
dark_Harmonicsdo you have the model number from yours Jack?02:05
Jack_Sparrowdark_Harmonics: You can sometimes get them free after a rebate from Frys02:06
Jack_Sparrowdark_Harmonics: LEt me look for it02:06
Odd-rationalesveakex: As long as you have fast and reliable internet connection. You should be good. You don't want to lose connection during install02:06
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about training - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi02:06

brandon_how do u install a wireless adapter?02:09

desertcDr_willis: Sure, and if you want to play a Nintendo game, it's not available on Ubuntu either, but that is because Ubuntu != Nintendo.02:09
sveakexOdd-rationale: after i finished i might try Linux From Scratch or Slackware02:09
_elementaloboy03, start learning now then, the more you use it the more flexible it becomes.02:09

olivia23danbhfive: http://packages.ubuntu.com/dapper/utils/disktype , trying to install that03:19
WebuKiD_ChAoS, if it simply won't work, it might be your card and/or it's driver though it "worked" with a GUI.03:19
Optimus55Rellic: sorry i mean the other way around. not windows in ubuntu, i mean ubuntu apps in windows03:19
geniidrpcken: What does the result of:   sudo fdisk -l |grep sda5                               report?03:19
Optimus55danbhfive: does cygwin support linux applications in window?03:19
olivia23danbhfive: nvm, got it03:19
danbhfiveOptimus55: yeah03:19
broken__How can I stop a monitor from going into power save mode upon reboot?03:20
KiD_ChAoSWebu, wierd 'ifdown eth1' comes back as 'eth1 not configured'03:20
danbhfiveolivia23: its in gutsy03:20
Optimus55danbhfive: thanks03:20
geniiKiD_ChAoS: Another thing which occurs to me is that your APs may be each individually assigning DHCP IPs to clients which conflict with each other03:20
WebuKiD_ChAoS, at least my Windows laptop always selects the strongest open AP if there's many avaible with the same SSID and channel.03:20
danbhfivebroken__: doesn't that happen because the monitor is turned off?03:20
drpckengenii, /dev/sda5            3434        9729    50572588+  83  Linux03:21
danbhfivebroken__: or rather, the signal is cut03:21
KiD_ChAoSWebu, yes that was why we made them all the same SSID to ensure the end-user with windows the best signal03:21
CrazyPhilHi. Sorry for the noob question. What does meen "switch to a tty" ?03:21
WebuKiD_ChAoS, hmmph, they might now work with wireless interfaces, sorry i'm not able to test it out since i don't have any wireless interfaces here :/03:21
WebuKiD_ChAoS, might not*03:21
KiD_ChAoSgenii, no we have our router handle all the DHCP03:21
broken__danbhfive, a friend is experiencing this issue, she says it only happens when she restarts from ubuntu but not a cold reboot.03:21
geniidrpcken: Then boot to recovery mode and run fsck /dev/sda503:21
danbhfiveCrazyPhil: TeleTYpe I think, I think it just means to start a terminal03:22
CrazyPhilok thanks03:22
danbhfivebroken__: maybe it's a bios issue03:22
nickrudCrazyPhil: it means press ctl-alt-f1 -> f6 , ctl-alt-f7 to get back to the gui03:22
drpckengenii, will do, what is sda5 though? i only have 2 partitions03:22
ahavetrying to configure my wifi usb adapter... what is my next step after i obtain the chipset?03:23
WebuKiD_ChAoS, yeah, even using different softwares like WifiHopper i wasn't able to select which one i'll connect (on my Windows laptop).03:23
geniidrpcken: Obviously you don't. To see a complete list of all your partitions, do just: sudo fdisk -l03:23
danbhfivebroken__: I remember way back that bios's had two boot modes, quick and normal, where quick was used on reboots, maybe quick boot doesn't work.  You should be able to turn it off in bios03:23
lokiridoes burning ubuntu to cd-rw vs cd-r have a difference?03:23
drpckengeni, you're right03:23
danbhfiveahave: are you using ndiswrapper?03:24
drpckengeni, says its a Linux system03:24
=== DrShower is now known as DrFrankenstein
drpckeni'll do what you said03:24
ahavedanbhfive, idk. how can i tell?03:24
bullgard4English help wanted. What is meant by 'bouncing' in the following sentence: "Via some abstraction (either acpid, gnome-power-manager or kpowersave or something), the userspace makes that decision and initiates the suspend to RAM process by either calling a suspend script directly or bouncing via HAL."03:24
HPubuntuLaptopI'm having some laptop issues here03:24
KiD_ChAoSWebu, genii, could it be that my driver for my wireless card is fwcutter?03:24
Rellicfor security sakes and stuff is it still a good idea to make multiple partitions for /root /boot, etc?03:24
KuroachiaIs there something that I'm missing? I'm running 7.10 and I want to burn an .iso to a dvd and when I right click on the file I don't have a burn command like people are saying online.03:24
danbhfiveahave: from whatever directions you are following03:24
Starnestommybullgard4: it's telling the system to suspend using HAL03:24
KiD_ChAoSi switched from ndiswrapper to fwcutter03:24
geniiKiD_ChAoS: I doubt it could be the cause, since the adapter seems to work otherwise.03:24
nickrudbullgard4: it means calling it indirectly via hal03:24
KiD_ChAoSgenii, yes right03:25
Kuroachiaand when I pop the blank DVD in ubuntu prompts me to create a DVD but when I go to make a dvd an error comes up saying  "burn:///" is not a valid location.03:25
ahavedanbhfive, i do not have directions..03:25
drpckenalso, i always disable system beep with rmmod pcspkr, but when i reboot the system beep returns03:25
ahavedanbhfive, which is why i am here03:25
WebuKiD_ChAoS, sorry i don't know much about the drivers, but it's possible that your driver or card just wants to switch the strongest one regardless what Ubuntu tries to set.03:25
HPubuntuLaptopI just bought an HP Pavilion laptop with a widescreen LCD 15" display, I'm having trouble finding out which display to enter at boot (I put "Nvidia GeForce 7 series, because I have a 7150) but I can't figure out what to put for the monitor03:25

ubotuJolly_Fat_Man: To verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/VerifyIsoHowto or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows03:25
geniiKiD_ChAoS: incidentally fwcutter is just a tool to snip the windows firmware for an adapter so that ndiswrapper can use it. so you are really still using ndiswrapper, really.03:25
KiD_ChAoSoh i c03:26
ahavedanbhfive, thx03:26
neclimdulwow everyone has wireless questions today03:26
nickruddrpcken: create a file in /etc/modprobe.d/ named pcspeaker, and add the line   blacklist  pcspkr     to it. That will prevent it being reloaded on boot03:26
geniidrpcken: You can just blacklist the pcspkr module if you never want to hear it03:26
WebuKiD_ChAoS, from iwconfig man page: "Force the card to register to the Access Point given by the address,03:26
Webuif it is possible. When the quality of the connection goes too low, the driver may revert back to automatic mode (the card finds the best Access Point in range).03:26

DiceyDaysI am on amd 64 and I am trying to install vista 64 in virtualbox. Yet I get this error message in vista start up- "Attempting to load a 64-bit application, however this cpu is not compatible with 64-bit mode". Does virtualbox only run 32bit?03:28

Roydanbhfive: I need to remove them because the uninstaller is missing.03:28
geniiKiD_ChAoS: So if your router assigns the dhcp numbers for the entire network including all the APs are they set up in something like repeater/bridge mode? Since most APs of course are getting the IP from the router then assign different ranges to their clients03:28
WebuKiD_ChAoS, i see, it sounds a bit funny and strange at the same time if GUI claims to be connected to a specific MAC.03:29
RoyThat application is incompatible03:29

magickHPubuntuLaptop, I highly doubt a big market company like HP would give out a laptop without the cd.. its there, just look for it03:33
poningrujw144000: just make sure the external hard drive is not connected when you do this03:33
nickrudevil evil evil jw14400003:33

jw144000In my case03:34
Danger_is there a support channel for the eee-pc03:34

jw144000nickrud: Heh. It's retarded that they won't give you actual installation CDs, but instead opt on putting system restore on the hard drive. It's as if they didn't think about what I'd need to do if I needed to reformat and reinstall everything, luckily I have a Windows XP CD or I'd be SOL03:37

joh6nnand then apt-get install <foo> , where foo is whatever the best result from the search is03:50
scott_is there a program that will take photos and convert them into a video sideshow03:50
jribogre: what package did you install for virtualbox?03:50
bluekbnickrud, thank you.  I have confirmed why I think nvidia is not working: kernel update.03:51
uid000before removing the Ti 4200, i disabled the proprietary driver, reenabling 'nv'03:51
bluekbI didn't realize it.03:51
joh6nni'm seeing the weirdest damn behavior from apt-cache, and i have no idea what's causing it: any search i run has lots of blank lines mixed in with the output, and once the search is done, bash acts like i held down the enter key03:51
bluekbNow, to figure out how to update the nvidia drivers.03:51
nickrudm0u5e: cat /proc/cpuinfo03:51
m0u5eoh crap, i have an SGI03:51
TiconderogaMaybe I'll just re-read the community docs then...03:51

uid000now i can't get the binary driver to work with the new(er) 5200, and i'm pulling my hair out03:51
nickrudbluekb: if you are using the ubuntu drivers , install linux-generic that will keep them up to date03:51
jribjoh6nn: is it reproducable in a new terminal?03:51
geniiJohn_R: Perhaps your Enter key is sticking03:51

joh6nnclosed both of them, reopened them, still happening03:52
bluekbnickrud, I had trouble with the ubuntu drivers;  had to install from nvidia's downloads.03:52
geniiJohn_R: Sorry, misdirect :)03:52
poningrujw144000: what did it say?03:52
jribjoh6nn: only with apt-cache?03:52
ogrejrib:  1 sec03:52
nickrudbluekb: then you have to do a complete new install, or at least recompile the kernel modules03:52
m0u5eargh... i have a 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 661/741/760 PCI/AGP or 662/761Gx PCIE VGA Display Adapter03:52

m0u5enickrud: i tried it, but it was even slower than using the generic drivers03:54
nickrudm0u5e: that's how you get compiz with sis I read03:54

_Oz_I think the lowest I could go is Photoshop CS2.04:45
Webuconnnky, but in general avahi shouldn't do anything since you can assign as many virtual interfaces to a physical interface you want (eth0:1, eth0:2, eth0:3). eth0 will stay as the main physical interface.04:45

uid000masequis: although i /do not/ understand what is causing this.  when i did the fresh install, and i looked at lsmod, i saw that i2c_viapro (which is probably specific to my motherboard's chipset) was loaded and depended on nvidia04:51

psycholvlani had it working at home... i brought my computer to my friends and using a different monitor04:55
Jangaridunno, esoterik, i never have flash problems anymore, i used to get them all the time04:55

bitmonki wonder if anyone has ubuntu working on a mac with boot camp and parallels from the same partition.  i am sure using a lot of space and dealing with a lot of awkwardness having a 10G parallels vm and a 10G native partition..05:00
bitmonkalso i have found limited information via google, and wonder if there is any well known documentation on booting from a ZFS volume05:01
jw144000poningru: It still says it can't find it05:01
bitmonkfrom what i can tell, right now, re: parallels + boot camp, the install i performed for boot camp throws a grub prompt asking for the kernel location when i try to boot it in parallels.05:02
jw144000poningru: it says it can't find the package ms-sys05:02
bitmonki sort of wonder if perhaps parallels isn't just seeing that individual partition as a whole drive, maybe i need two boot options in grub for the two environments?05:02

Jangariyou can remove anything from the menus albertolempira, in system > administration > main menu05:03
masequisuid000: I've been known to be so crude as to add modprobes to init.d scripts. :)05:03
bitmonkalbertolempira: you can probably edit the menus by hand, but it's been a long running goal for both KDE and GNOME communities, and for distros like ubuntu, to help people to use the disparate suite of apps offered by both communities and more..05:03
oranye_iam dana05:03
jw144000poningru: synaptic? where is that05:04
bitmonke.g. not every app in GNOME or KDE necessarily has a corresponding app built on the other tech.05:04
uid000masequis: yeah, i've done that in rc.local once or twice.  usually /etc/modules gets it though05:04
poningrujw144000: system->admin->synaptic05:04
bitmonkand in many cases you'll find good apps which are not built specifically with either stack.05:04

bullgard4Where can I find a description of kacpid? (There exists a acpid man page but no kacpid man page.)06:13
nemilarIsaac_: you should look at the output of the 'dmesg' command to see if it says anything about your flash drive06:13
Alohabullgard4, is it a binary?06:13
bazhangimbecile: no problems here--must be the source of the ##windows software--only legally obtained versions work if memory serves06:13
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about twss - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi06:14

nemilarKuroachia: oh, no... that would require a script06:18
m0u5eits an SGI06:18
mouseboyxI don't think there are linux drivers for it.06:18
nemilarKuroachia: if you don't mind spending a little time on it, you could probably hack together a bash script to do that, using some tutorials on the web, in about 5-10 minutes06:18
imbecilebazhang:  you are totally just writing it off. next you will say its an issue with vmware. its all vm apps06:18
Isaac_Well shoot!  Can I still install Ubuntu to my external USB 160 gigabyte hard drive?06:18
bazhangIsaac_: sure06:19
Kuroachianemilar: I figured as much, I was hoping to perhaps save the commands as a text document that I could then run. Bash script you say? All right, I'll take a look. Thanks!06:19

tcpdumpgodIm going to go to a previous version.06:22
imbeciletcpdumpgod:  yeah i cant run any. im gonna try to setup a ubuntu vm on the top of ubuntu just so bazhang understands its not cuz of leopard/xp or any of the vm apps. it IS ubuntu specific06:23
fattmoleyhow do you roll back to the previous flash version?06:23
nemilarfattmoley: I think people are fixing the flash issue by installing the version from Adobe's website, but someone here should second that before you do it06:23
carlhow do I edit my xorg in terminal06:23
mouseboyxnemilar,  thats what i did/06:23
Isaac_I'm not sure bazhang.  All I know is I want a flash drive that I can install Ubuntu to (without that pen drive tutorial, which doesn't work for me for some reason).06:23
Creationistcarl: sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf06:24
badkittynemilar: I just did a fresh install and my flash somehow got installed.. perhaps it was the ubuntu-restricted-extras??06:24
tcpdumpgodSo you're booting an Ubuntu vmware image correct imbecile ?06:24
Creationistcarl: or sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg06:24
bazhangIsaac_: it is not really the brand--there are several distros that allow that but it is very experimental at this point--you can buy a usb flash key with a distro pre-installed--otherwise it is pendrivelinux.com06:24

tcpdumpgodIsaac_, im sure there are.06:25

badkittyIsaac_: Have a looksie http://www.debuntu.org/how-to-install-ubuntu-linux-on-usb-bar-p206:25
nemilarEditing your xorg.conf file by hand will break your X configuration even if you do everything correctly. <--- the truth06:26

Invisible_Ubuntinemilar, doesn't seem to have a effect every app i load I can't switch to once I leave it to go to a new app loaded06:29

mouseboyxBut cool.06:30
bazhangm0u5e: major breakage city06:30

wsguedeusing the terminal, how do i switch from ubuntu to xubuntu?06:30
mouseboyxwsguede, I don't understand.06:30
nemilarm0u5e: if they're kernel modules, then it's probably a /really/ bad idea06:30
ethan961think so?06:30
Isaac_Oh well.  Thanks y'all.  Guess I'll just have to put up with this big external hard drive for an external Ubuntu install...........06:30
imbecilebazhang:  its vmware-server the only vmware they had in repos06:31
Invisible_Ubuntiwsguede, they may have changed it but it used to be xwmconfig i think06:31
nemilarIsaac_: google it, dude06:31
m0u5enemilar: lol06:31
Invisible_Ubuntinemilar, any other idea's lol06:31
Isaac_Sure wish they'd make a hard drive as small as a pen drive though.  Seems they could if they wanted to these days.06:31
nemilarInvisible_Ubunti: that command did nothing?06:31
bazhangimbecile: the canonical gutsy partner?06:31
Isaac_All I'd need is four gigs or so06:31
wsguedemouseboyx: i have ubuntu installed, but its slow on my older machine, i want to switch to xubuntu, w/o doing the cd install06:31
nemilarIsaac_: stop whining and GOOGLE it06:31
nemilarIsaac_: everyone here gave you options06:31
mouseboyxOh, wsguede then sudo apt-get install xfce06:31
wsguedeInvisible_Ubunti: sudo?06:32
bazhangIsaac_: you can buy them cough mandriva cough already preinstalled..06:32
jw144000Can anyone help me to install grub on this external HD of mine? I installed Gutsy on it but wound up getting a grub error, which overwrote the MBR on my internal HD (I have it fixed though)06:32
Invisible_Ubuntinemilar, nothing I can't switch back to that console i have to open a new one to type anything again and I won't be able to switch back to xchat06:32
ethan961it was pretty abysmal when I had dual RPM and DEB set up on my system06:32
imbecilebazhang:  im not sure which one it was. it was one of the default repos though. the only repo i added was reocard06:32
mouseboyxOh, wsguede then sudo apt-get install xfce4, my bad06:32
bazhangimbecile: reocard? which one is that?06:32
ethan961For rpm alien works plenty good enough for me06:32
nemilarInvisible_Ubunti: ahh.  you can enter commands by switching to a TTY (hold control+alt and press F3) ; then to get back to graphical control+alt+F706:33
nemilarIt's F7 right, not F806:33
imbecilebazhang: the eyecandy one with AWN stuff. just eyecandy stuff06:33
nemilaryeah it's f7, Invisible_Ubunti06:33
mouseboyx wsguede [sudo apt-get install xfce4] everything inside brackets in a terminal.06:33
Invisible_Ubuntinemilar, says Compiz: no processkilled06:33
wsguedemouseboyx: will this erase my settings?06:33
mouseboyxI don06:33

bazhangimbecile: would you mind posting your sources list?06:33
nemilarInvisible_Ubunti: killall -9 compiz & killall -9 compiz.real06:33
mouseboyxProbably not. you will have gnome and xfce406:33
wsguedemouseboyx: we will find out06:33
mouseboyxthen you just logout and slect xfce4 session06:33

carlhow do I install compiz06:35
Invisible_Ubuntinemilar, still the same I did ps aux and I don't see any compiz running I think just the windows settings are temp borked06:35
KuwangerSo, um, does ubuntu provide support for usplash?  Because, usplash doesn't seem to actually support transparency.06:35
Invisible_Ubunticarl, think its installed by default06:35
nemilarInvisible_Ubunti: do you see metacity running?06:35
mouseboyxIf your really worried about X11 speed then get jwm.06:35
bazhangKuwanger: you want to change it? want a factoid?06:35
nemilarInvisible_Ubunti: ps aux | grep -i metacity06:35
crdlbcarl: it's already installed; if you want help using it, jion #compiz-fusion06:36
Invisible_Ubuntinemilar, nope06:36
badkittycarl pm me ill help06:36
nemilarInvisible_Ubunti: try this, in the TTY:  export DISPLAY=":0.0" && metacity --replace &06:36
Invisible_Ubuntinemilar, I started it to see if it worked didn't config anything lol playing around and broke lol06:36
Kuwangerbazhang: Well, I probably *will* change it.  I'm just annoyed that transparent_color in usplash_pixmap means nothing.  And I wonder if the "simple runlength encoding" actually exists, since I've yet to see anything use it to store the pixmap data.06:36
Invisible_Ubuntinemilar, wow thnx.. what did that do?06:37
nemilarInvisible_Ubunti: worked?06:37
Invisible_Ubuntinemilar, yea, you told it to put metacity back to my display?06:37
nemilarInvisible_Ubunti: it set your DISPLAY variable, so your TTY knew which X session to control; and them metacity ran with the command to replace any existing window managers06:38

kunzyHey, i was booting up just fine, then i took my pc to school to kinda show what all ubuntu was about.  Then i got home and when i connected it back up, GRUB booted back up but XP was no longer a choice.  Where is the file that manages the GRUB boot menu and i am also going to need help to add my XP option for my master IDE HDD06:38
Invisible_Ubuntinemilar, when I started compiz it was in a terminal why just closing it did it do that?06:38
nemilarInvisible_Ubunti: don't ask me... I hate compiz.  too buggy06:39
mouseboyxkunzy, its /boot/grub/menu.lst be careful!06:39
Invisible_Ubuntinemilar, that is the way it looks, just wanted to see what all the fuss was about but I don't see a + to actually using it just from looking at it didn't see any flashy or breaking graphics06:39
kunzymouseboyx: Thanks, i will see what i can find.  I think the file itself got corrupt because i have to manually add the -noapic option manually now06:40
Invisible_Ubuntililo > grub for ease to use!06:40
nemilarInvisible_Ubunti: if it works it can be useful/fun...some of the guys here swear by it06:40
Invisible_Ubuntinemilar, I'll check it out bored while awaiting asus to actually send me a working mobo back for my main PC 3rd times the charm!!06:41
WGGMkIm having a problem with my sound. It seems every time an application that uses sound (after the sound has been played) will hang the sound, like after Banshee is finished a song it hangs, or if you try to skip a song, it hangs. Although pidgin will not hang, but sound will no longer work untill i shut down pidgin. Any thoughts????06:41
mouseboyxkunzy, that was redundant, but its something like   <title Microsoft Windows XP Professional root            (hd0,0) savedefault makeactive chainloader     +1>06:41
kunzyIm aiming to learn all i can so after i am comfortable with GRUB i am probably going to switch to lilo06:41
mouseboyxthe hd0,0 will change depending on which Hard drive it is.06:42
Invisible_Ubuntikunzy, lilo is 1000x easy imo but I started Linux on slackware which is harder to use then ubuntu06:42
nemilargrub > lilo06:42
nemilarjust 'cause it is.06:42
mouseboyxdoes slackware come with X?06:42
Invisible_Ubuntinemilar, why you say that?06:42
Invisible_Ubuntimouseboyx, slackware can use any x window06:42
imbecilebazhang: agree that its a bug? and like i said its not just vmware that doesnt work. no virtualbox no qemu and im sure no other VM app would work either06:43
kiefercurious if there is anyone about who can help me troubleshooting steam06:43
Invisible_Ubuntimouseboyx, comes with out of install, xfce, gnome, kde, blackbox, fluxbox and some others.06:43

zcat[1]trying to figure out how terminals get started these days.. used to be /etc/inittab .. if I want tty1 to drop straight to a 'top' or 'tail -f /var/log/squid.log' how would I do that?06:43
nemilarInvisible_Ubunti: I don't know any of the specifics, I just know it's better :)06:43
mouseboyxsudo apt-get install jwm06:43
Invisible_Ubuntinemilar, :P its better because of the looks but config file wise lilo is easier i think for new people06:44
kunzymouseboyx:  What do i put in for the kernel or is that not neccesary06:44
mouseboyxnone for windows.06:44
zcat[1]lilo is so 1995 ..06:44
kunzymouseboyx:  also, what are the options savedefault makeactive chainloader     +1   for?06:45
bazhangimbecile: are these older vm's you are trying to run?06:45
mouseboyxCopying this file will break the install.06:45
kunzykunzy:  Yea, i figured06:46
Invisible_Ubuntinemilar, one thing I'm noticing though is diffrence in kubuntu and ubuntu is that by installing restricted drivers for totem/ubuntu doesn't give mpeg/xvid/mp4 playback like it does for kubuntu06:46
kunzymouseboyx:  Yea, i figured06:46
zcat[1]answered my own question anyhow.. /etc/event.d/tty*, thanks guys :)06:46

bazhangCreed: spam elsewhere please06:51
imbecilebazhang:  i know :( it worked for me before too. thats why i think its a hardware specific bug w/ ubuntu06:51
Creedsorry, did a /amsg bazhang06:52
ubuntui was following a guide on howto update the ipw2200 driver and then i restarted and it doesnt have the wireless netwrok adapter listed anymore06:52

imbecilebazhang:  I didnt even have those repos enabled when i first was trying to fix it06:53

Invisible_Ubuntizcat[1], was being a little sarcastic :P  I don't know what needs to be done just passing time before my main PC is back up and running I think I'll load linux on it :P06:54
imbecilebazhang:  with Virtualbox it gives me a more verbose output but problem is that output is wrong. it tells me I need a package I already have installed06:55
zcat[1]WGGMk, vaguely.. I set it up twice 'cos I was so keen to try alpha3 I forgot I haven't backed up all the work I did on it :)06:55

Invisible_Ubuntizcat[1], so fair I have web working, sound, nvidia driver with a specail boot loader, login screen and gtk theme thats as far as I've got in 2 days06:55
WGGMkzcat[1]: would you happen to know why dansguardian would just hang when trying to start or restart it? or where I could look to investigate the problem??06:56
Creationisthow do I search for a certain filename in the terminal?06:56
ubuntuanyone have any ideas like in windows there is system restore is there anything like taht in ubuntu?06:56
zcat[1]WGGMk, shuffle your blacklists.. DG sorts them, and the sort algo it uses is really inefficient with already-sorted lists ... or does it just hang 'forever'?06:57
WGGMkCreationist: try "locate <filename>"06:57
_Lance 06:57
bazhangimbecile: this is really troubling--vmware is so necessary these days--I wish I could help out more--perhaps just post a message to the other channels and they can help (eventually)--what is your computer make and model?06:57
_Lanceanyone at least help me on why my computer can't come back on from suspend or is that a common bug?06:58
WGGMkzcat[1]: not sure what you mean by 'shuffle' but yes, it hangs forever when starting from webmin, and when executing "sudo /etc/init.d/dansguardian start" it will stay at "Starting DansGuardian..." and ill never get the [ok]06:58

bazhangbod_: did splashy ever work? or once you rebooted you got this error? are you backed up?07:18
bod_bazhang,  ???07:18
bod_oh sorry07:19
RcommanderOn my Asus g1s in Gnome ubuntu all my FN keys works fine, however in Kubuntu they don't seem to work right??07:20
bod_bazhang, unforunately my backup was scheduled for today, so i have no backup, and i never got splashy working, although theres something on the site i dont understand here (Note that to enable the framebuffer on your kernel, you will need to add a parameter to the kernel arguments: vga=791. Read the framebuffer documentation of the kernel, or Splashy's README file, on how to use different resolutions. You will also need the keyword s07:20
bod_plash as an argument. This is respected by Splashy 0.2.x and up)07:20

bazhangbod_: that would be the boot parameters such as noapic if I recall correctly--anyway you can run a livecd then back up that way?07:21

WGGMkIm having a problem with my sound. It seems every time an application that uses sound (after the sound has been played) will hang the sound, like after Banshee is finished a song it hangs, or if you try to skip a song, it hangs. Although pidgin will not hang, but sound will no longer work untill i shut down pidgin. Any thoughts????07:22

bazhangbod_: right, so what about using a livecd and booting up from that, then copying the back up files over to a usb stick or elsewhere07:23
Rcommanderanyone have an idea about the G1s?07:24
bod_bazhang, i have never taken a backup before, my backup would have been all the files,. i dontknow which ones to copy without copying the broken splashy? and will the livecd be able to mount my hard drive?07:24
