anon32it's probably harmless00:30

anon32if it's a fresh install, go ahead and hit "yes"00:30
Dhraakelliansince adept updater was giving me grief00:30
anon32yasahiro, try starting amarok on the command line and see if it spews any errors00:31
Dhraakellianoh, and I'd just like to say for the record that irssi proxy totally rocks.  (still connected via the laptop, but using konversation on the desktop, where copying and pasting the errors is easier)00:31
yasahiroall that happened was a dialog came up saying amarok currently cant play mp3 files, and gives me an option to install mp3 support00:32

anon32NightBird, that's wonderful... now my ATI setup can be even more broken than it already is.01:01
NightBirdyeah... the next kubuntu may be using kde4 by default which comes with it's own set of eye candy01:01
PriceChildanon32, it only turns on for cards not in its blacklist...01:01
ubotuDesktop Effects are supported on graphics cards that use the default Intel and ATI drivers and the restricted !NVIDIA drivers, except for the following, which are blacklisted due to stability/compatibility issues: Intel 965, ATI Rs480 and Rv350, ATI Mobility x300, x600 and x700 - Join #compiz-fusion for anything not officially supported by Ubuntu01:01

NightBirder... the gnome window manager01:04
anon32according to the spec, it will call XRender in the absense of OpenGL01:04
anon32that's software isn't it?01:04
NightBirdno, XRender requires support from the video card01:05
NightBirder... from the driver01:05
anon32maybe it doesn't fail that much then. Still would like to see it blacklisted for chips using the "radeon" driver though.01:06
fivetwentysixIf I install KDE 4.0 can i still use 3.5 ?01:06

NutubuntuI am going to have to tar |untar my old ~ directory from an old drive taken from my old box, to my new Gutsy box.

ubuntuwhat is a bot05:18
xRaich[o]2xubotu is05:18
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about is - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi05:18

ubuntulol i feel like an idiot05:20
ubuntuok but umm05:20
Dr_willisfor starters ya may want to pick a better nickname  /Nick NewLinuxDood05:21
ubuntuon that website trhe bot gave me... do i just input the command for ATI05:21
Dr_willisTo install the ati drivers, you have to install the proper ati packages.  The restricted-manager tool should of automated that however.05:21
NutubuntuDr_willis: he can probably have mine, I'm going to change it to I-am-SO-stupid-sometimes05:21
Dr_willisOf course with ati - a lot of  getting ATI to work right.. can be a gamble.05:22

emilsedghgundam_rx78nt1: personal color schemes are in ~/.kde/share/apps/kdisplay07:37
emilsedghand system ones are in /usr/share/apps/kdisplay07:37

theThemeHey everyone, I'm trying to relink a torrent with ktorrent, but I can't find where it saves the .torrent file by default, does anyone know where it is?08:03
hyper__chtheTheme: you could search your system - but very likely it's somewhere in ~/.kde/...08:04
ForgeAushmm time to write out a fesity.iso!08:04
hyper__chhuhu Jucato08:06
theThemeI found them, but none of them are labeled...frustrating, they are in a folder called "tor15" for example and inside that folder there are number of files, but none that can differentiate them08:12
Daisuke_Idoit's a pain08:12
hyper__chthat's one reason I don't use ktorrent any longer08:12
Daisuke_Idohyper__ch: i'm always open for torrent client suggestions, what do you use?08:13
hyper__chDaisuke_Ido: rtorrent.... ncurses based08:13
hyper__chDaisuke_Ido: The TPB crew also uses it ;)08:13
hyper__chDaisuke_Ido: only drawback - it does not have an ipfilter like ktorrent... you have to use iptables for that08:14
Daisuke_Idoi'm a little more inclined toward a more graphical client, just because i'm spoiled like that08:14
hyper__chDaisuke_Ido: rtorrent is graphical ;)08:14
Daisuke_Idoi said *more* graphical :)08:15
Daisuke_Idonow, if i were setting up a box *just* for torrenting, i would go with something like that08:15
hyper__chDaisuke_Ido: it's got even an ncurses interface by default and a few wuis08:15
hyper__chbest thing is, it's completely controlable from any ssh connection ;)08:16
hyper__ch(if you don't use a wui)08:16
Daisuke_Idoand that's why i would use it for a seed box08:16
hyper__chDaisuke_Ido: ;)08:16

hyper__chDaisuke_Ido: It's been a long time since I looked at deluge and never had a glance at transmission at all08:20

dZen|n|Hello, I have a problem, I have compiz installed on kubuntu gytsy. My window decoration crashes all the time 2-3 timer pr day. My solution is to retstart kdm.10:46
nevilleIs it the default window manager?10:48
dZen|n|neville: what do you mean with that ?10:49
nevilleWell, when you start your computer, does it start Compiz by default?10:50
nevilleWould changing it back to the default, 2D window manager suit you fine?10:50
nevilleCompiz is still pretty buggy, and is only really useful for making friends jealous :P10:51
dZen|n|ok How do I disable it, so I can start it manually ?10:51
simion314hi, i still can't connect to ubuntu.com, restart my internet connection, boot in windows,  the ip appears when i ping but the answer is not comming, i can't read forums  to try to find such problems, i can see other web pages, this is strange10:51
nevillePress Alt+F2, and a little command box should pop up10:52
nevilleType into that kwin replace &10:52
nevilleThen logout and back in, and it should be back to normal10:52
dZen|n|oki thx.10:52
dZen|n|by the way I don't have any friends, im impressing my self10:53
nevilleHahaha, same here :P10:53
teo_where can i find the archives i have downloaded with apt-get ??10:54
dZen|n|well I am just impressed that kubuntu with compiz don't use so much ram as crappy vista10:54
dZen|n|I am used to use suse, so I am pretty new to ubuntu/kubuntu10:54
emilsedghteo_: /var/cache/apt/archives10:55
nevilleI've given Suse a go before, and maybe I'm just biased, but Kubuntu is actually alot easier to use in my opinion10:55
emilsedghcomparing vista to kubuntu isnt good...its like comparing a doll house with a huge building ;)10:56
nevilleLook, Vista isn't that bad10:57
simion314hi, i still can't connect to ubuntu.com, restart my internet connection, boot in windows,  the ip appears when i ping but the answer is not comming, i can't read forums  to try to find such problems, i can see other web pages, this is strange and stupid, why ubuntu? i can't use apt because it can't get to ubuntu10:57
nevilleI mean10:57
dZen|n|well kubuntu us great, the best linux dist. My friedns at work use gentoo, thet need to compile everything self. A system shouldnt bee so hard to use. We live in a fancy world :d10:57
emilsedghs/to/with :P10:57
nevilleIt's great for "borrowing" the D3D 10 .dll files for Wine for patch 'n play gaming :P10:57
dZen|n|simion314: ubuntu.com wokrd fine with me, do you have adsl ?10:57
simion314<dZen|n|>: yes10:58
nevilleYeah, Kubuntu is the best :D10:58
theunixgeekHow can I get desktop icons to display in Kubuntu, like Computer, Documents, etc?10:58
dZen|n|theunixgeek: right click add to desktop :D10:59
Lynouretheunixgeek: you just add them on your desktop, and they should show just fine. What happens in your case?10:59
emilsedghneville: i was just kidding, i never tried vista :P10:59
nevilleOh, really?10:59
nevilleWell, it left a bad taste in my mouth10:59
dZen|n|simion314: thoes your adsl link blinks ?10:59
nevilleAero is blegh11:00
dZen|n|I have to use vista at my work, my boss would not let me use linux :(11:00
theunixgeekLynoure: Like, links?11:00
nevilleHe's brave, allowing the use of Vista in productive environment this early :P11:00
simion314dZen|n|: yes, i can connect to google or wikipedia and when i try to ping it finds this ip addres []11:01

Lynourechanika: and you cannot wait till hardy (8.04) where that would be actually supported?11:15
Kheopsgood job boys i use Kubuntu from the Begining11:15
Lynourechanika: Then my guess is quite many things will break, or at least you'll have to tweak a lot of config files. I'd go for an install and not upgrade if I really wanted to go from dapper to gutsy (and had separate home... or just good backups)11:18

llutzForgeAus: right13:26
ForgeAusthanx :)13:26
aharooni enable this service when i used windows to speed torrent download13:26

JucatoForgeAus: nope13:29
llutzlsb_release -a13:29
ForgeAuswait maybe not13:29
JucatoKheops: the one llutz gave13:30
JucatoForgeAus: that's specifically for kernel version13:30
ForgeAusahh ok thanx Jucato, I'm still confused as you can tell13:30
Jucatoone step at at time... little by little :)13:30
Kheops6.06.1 yeah13:30
ForgeAus(I was using uname for some other distro)13:30
Jucatohm... 6.06.2 was out already afaik...13:31
JucatoForgeAus: well you can relate the kernel version to which version was available for a particular distro release.13:31
ForgeAusmusta been something I was reading about AndLinux or MacOSX13:31
Jucato(and not everyone has lsb_release, so "cat /etc/release" is probably more accurate)13:32
ForgeAusI need a ToH kernel to run it on my PC if I make it a Hackintosh13:32
ForgeAusunfortunately its illegal to do so :(...13:32
ForgeAusthe compatibility would be nice tho13:32

BluesKajHowdy all :)13:46
Kheopswhat's a  repository's key ?13:48
hyper__chwhat's kdebase-bin-kde3 needed for?13:50
BluesKajKheops, the repository key is a validation that the source packages are bugfree and legit ...I think. Sometimes the key can't be validated due to changes in pkgs.13:51
gundam_rx78nt1BluesKaj: I have found my problem with Amarok...13:53
BluesKajhyper__ch, copy and paste kdebase-bin-kde3 into adept searchbox then look at the 'properties' the explanation will pop up.13:53
BluesKajcool, gundam_rx78nt1 , what was it ?13:53
hyper__chBluesKaj: maybe someone would directly know13:53
gundam_rx78nt1when the update for alsa came out conflicted with the settings I had on amarok.13:54
BluesKajhyper__ch, we're not here to hold your hand , if you can follow instructions that's what we're here for.13:54
gundam_rx78nt1I wiped out the xine config files in my .xine directory and it workd.13:54
hyper__chBluesKaj: hmmm, why would kde4-core want to remove kdebase-bin-kde3 ?13:54
hyper__chBluesKaj: did I ask to hold my hand?13:54
gundam_rx78nt1oh, are we dancing here? LOL.13:55

Kheopswhat is xserver ?14:00
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about xserver - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi14:01
ubotuThe X Window System is the part of your system that's responsible for graphical output. To restart your X, type « sudo /etc/init.d/?dm restart » in a console - To fix screen resolution or other X problems: http://help.ubuntu.com/community/FixVideoResolutionHowto14:01

LjLKheops: that shell isn't a root shell, is it?14:32
LjLKheops: why on earth are you running wine (or anything) in a root shell?14:32
LjLKheops: the problem is that wine won't run from a root shell. neither will any other graphical application, really.14:33
JavaBeansHey guys, just another quick question14:33
JavaBeansHow can I edit the xorg file without logging in as root?14:33
LjLKheops: root shouldn't be *enabled* for starters14:33
LjLKheops: run it as normal user?14:33
ubotuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo14:34
ubotuWe don't support a root password so don't suggest one unless you are going to be here 24/7 to help someone who has problems as a result of having one, many thanks ;-)14:34
Kheopswhat should i do ?14:34
rebuggerJavaBeans: think, that doesnt work14:34
LjLKheops: run it from a normal user. not root.14:34
Kheopshow ?14:34
BluesKajJavaBeans, you need permissions to edit xorg14:34
Kheopsrelogin ?14:34
LjLKheops: if you know how to get a root shell, you should know how to get a *non* root shell...?14:34
JavaBeansYes, I understand14:34
JavaBeansThat's why I am asking how to obtain that privilage14:35
LjLKheops: are you running you *KDE* as root?14:35
JavaBeansBecause I need to edit it...14:35
LjLKheops: then just open a Konsole not as root. and type "exit" in the root one.14:35
hyper__chJavaBeans: sudo nano /etc/xorg/xorg.conf14:35
BluesKajJavaBeans, alt+F2, kdesu kate /etc/X11/xorg.conf14:35
Kheopsit's working14:35
hyper__chJavaBeans: sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf14:36
KheopsLjL: i don't understand why wine don't work on root14:36
LjLKheops: unsurprising. please never run things as root, especially not a whole shell, unless you know *exactly* what you're doing.14:36
JavaBeansThanks for the help14:36
LjLKheops: because your X screen is owned by your user, not by root14:36
Kheopsgood to know14:37
LjLKheops: when you need to run something graphical as root, use "kdesudo". however, this isn't needed most of the times, *at all*, and may be dangerous.14:37
LjL!kdesudo > Kheops    (Kheops, see the private message from Ubotu)14:37
LjLKheops: to run programs in WINE, you can just type « wine /path/to/the/program.exe », generally speaking. not as root.14:37
BluesKajLjL, kheops is running dapper14:37
Kheopsi used kubuntu only for servers14:38
Kheopsdon't know about graphical or something14:38
LjLKheops: "kdesu" on dapper, not "kdesudo"14:38
Kheopsonly servers14:38
LjLKheops: well, on a server too, there's no real reason to use a root shell as a rule14:38
Kheopshmm i was running root always..14:38
Kheopsbecause i can do everything14:39
LjLKheops: you won't die out of typing "sudo" before programs that actually *need* to be root14:39
LjLi do that all the time, and i'm still alive14:39

Stratman4300now i'm trying to adjust the size of my external taskbar.....  but i don't see the menu in the panel configurator to select which panel your configuring....14:59
Stratman4300ehh...  sorry....  new to IRC   =P15:00
Stratman4300did they do away with that menu???15:00
rebuggerStratman4300: just rightclick the panel, that you want to resize - and go to the settings15:00
rebuggerthen you can resize it15:00
llutzStratman4300: or run kcontrol instead of crippled systemsettings, there you should find all those setting-menus15:02
=== readyx is now known as ready
Stratman4300right i select my external taskbar....  click configur external taskbar...  and it takes me to the panel configuration....   i go to arrangment to adjust the size but it selects to main panel by default....   there isn't a menu to select which panel your configuring anymore....   it's always been there in debian....  thought maybe i was going crazy..  lol15:02
Jucatoit's a bug. you need to restart the panel to tell it that a new panel has been added/removed.15:03
JucatoAlt+F2, "dcop kicker kicker restart"15:03

JavaBeansHi all15:14
JavaBeansJust wanted to say thanks for the few that helped me with my graphics deal15:14
JavaBeansThe monitor was the issue15:14
mikiwhat happens with compiz after this changes in ubuntu i can't see window normaly in hardy?15:15
BluesKajyes JavaBeans , sometimes ppl forget about the monitor settings ...quite important actually'15:15
JavaBeansYeah, it was the last thing I thought about15:16
JavaBeansAlways go straight for Nvidia, lol15:16
BluesKajweel, ATI here and my monitor needed some custom settings to get my preferred resolution to work.15:17
JavaBeansWhen I was running windows it said that my refresh rate was 6015:17
JavaBeansAnd it would hide any other refresh rates that were not compatible15:17
JavaBeansYet I am running 65 right now15:17
JavaBeansIs that going ot damage my monitor in any way?15:17
BluesKajno, not 6515:18
rebuggerJavaBeans: no, but your eyes15:18
rebuggerJavaBeans: try > 7015:18
JavaBeansSo it needs to be higher?15:18
JavaBeansIt appears that my monitor was not made to handle that15:18
JavaBeansIt's a viewsonic 2235wm15:18

NiteOwl255does anyone have experience setting up kubuntu with a wireless router?15:26
rebuggerNiteOwl255: well, why dont you just tell, what your problem is?15:27
ChaniI gave up, I'm gonna try and use my last blank cd to burn gutsy.... if the guy is still interested after all this insanity15:27
Chanihis windoze install is even more broken right now, so who knows, he might be willing to let me keep mucking with things15:28
NiteOwl255it seems that the network connection will not connect to my wireless router, I have a NetGear WG111t usb 802.g usb adapter trying to connect to my WRT54GL linksys router15:28
rebuggerNiteOwl255: so what have you done? is your wireless-adapter working?15:29
NiteOwl255it seems to be, it was showing me the available wrl network and I saw mine, tried to connect to it15:30
rebuggerhow is/was the signal quality?15:30
NiteOwl255in the progress it would get up to about %57 and would say trying to setup ip address or something but then it would say that I could not connect15:31
NiteOwl255the signal quality was very good15:31
rebuggerNiteOwl255: ok, thats no big problem15:32
rebuggerNiteOwl255: just try to reconnect15:32
rebuggerwhen it says: getting ip, it means you are connected15:32
rebuggerNiteOwl255: dhcp is running on the router?15:32
rebuggerNiteOwl255: so it can get an ip15:32
NiteOwl255but here's the thing, I use static IP so I went into manual settings and set the IP and everhting15:32
NiteOwl255I know it's set the the right IP, gateway and subnet but it still will not connect15:33
rebuggerNiteOwl255: well, havent tried it with static ips15:33
rebuggerNiteOwl255: i would suggest: keep playing around with the settings - you are near15:34
rebuggerNiteOwl255: or just enable dhcp for your wlan15:34
NiteOwl255here's another thing, in the network setting, under manual config15:34
NiteOwl255in the route tab, I set it to my wrl adapter I save the changes and even tried rebooting but it keeps going back to me ether controller15:35
NiteOwl255it seems like it's not keeping my setting or something15:36
rebuggerNiteOwl255: well sorry, cant help with that - never needed these options15:36
NiteOwl255thanks anyways15:37

blekoshi, does anybody use cnr, how can i install it?15:37
NiteOwl255really starting to piss me off, as far as I can see it should work but the one setting not stay to what I set it tells me that it's something else wrong maybe15:38

ericwlNiteOwl255: NetworkManager will always prefer your ethernet cable over your WLAN if it's the issue.15:38
henkhi all, i just installed kubuntu and copied my .kde from a previous ubuntu installation... however, the menu editor doesn't seem to want to start... can someone tell me which app would that be? apparantly, there is no "menu-editor" command :)15:39
NiteOwl255but I've even tried disabling the ether controller but it re-enables it15:39
NiteOwl255why is that?15:39
ericwlNiteOwl255: and what if you just unplug the cable?15:40
luigi_can i add on kopete the italian server of ubuntu?15:40
Jucatohenk: kmenuedit15:40
NiteOwl255the cable is already unplugged15:40
Jucatoluigi_: you're using Konversation. why do you need to add it to Kopete?15:41
NiteOwl255stubborn thing I'm finding15:41
Jucatoluigi_: also, #ubuntu-it is on this same server. you just need to go to the channel. no need to add a new server15:41
luigi_noooo i need to add on konversation.. apologies!15:42
NiteOwl255it seems to want to connect wirelessly only with DHCP15:42
NiteOwl255shouldn't I be able to tell it what IP to use and stuff?15:43
luigi_Jucato your link doesn't work.15:43
ericwlNiteOwl255: OK, you lost me...15:43
NiteOwl255sorry, where did I loose you?15:43
Jucatoluigi_: what link? just click on #ubuntu-it or type /j #ubuntu-it15:44
ericwlNiteOwl255: let me try to repeat what I understood (or what I think I would do at your place :-) )...15:44
luigi_damn! someone can help me with a doubt with a wireless?15:45
ericwlNiteOwl255: you didn't change anything to your computer, only to your router, where you assigned a fixed IP address to the MAC address of your WLAN adapter?15:46
ericwlluigi_: don't ask to ask, just ask....15:46
dorkfaceHI all.  I have a .tff file that has a font that I really want to use.  I've searched google, but I couldn't find anything on converting .tff to .pcf.  Is it possible?15:47
dorkfaceor can konsole use .tff?15:47
NiteOwl255oh no, I've set my router to static IPs. So any computer wanting to contect to it have to be config to a specific IP range, subnetmask and gateway.15:48
NiteOwl255with DHCP the router provide that info to the computers trying to connect to it15:49
NiteOwl255I prefer to do it manually15:49
mixedanyone wants to help me remove windows from my distro?15:50
NiteOwl255this mean that on my kubuntu I have to tell it manually what IP, subnet and gateway to use15:51
ericwlNiteOwl255: OK, understood (not why you do this, but what you do).15:51
mixedI have Linux installed in a SATA drive and windows in an IDE HD, it's all set up as dual-boot, how can I remove the IDE HD from my distro and make linux boot up normal?15:51
ericwlNiteOwl255: sorry, not experience with static IPs and WLAN. If I want to have a specific computer always get the same IP, I just set it up accordingly in my router, using the MAC address.15:52
ericwldorkface: konsole can use ttf (I assume that's what you mean with tff).15:53
NiteOwl255I'm not familiar with that15:53
NiteOwl255but still is there a way for me to force the setting?15:54
dorkfaceericwl: ah, yes, I do.  :)  Do you happen to know how to be able to get konsole to use the file?  When I go into the font options, there are only a few fonts to select from, and no import option.15:54
Jucatokonsole can only use monospace fonts15:56
ericwldorkface: jucato is right konsole shows only monospace fonts installed on your system.15:56
dorkfaceericwl: So, I am basically out of luck? hehe15:57
ericwlNiteOwl255: if you use ifconfig, you'll say for each interface a HWaddr value (6 hexadecimal numbers, like 00:1C:C4:84:80:55)15:58
ericwlMost WLAN routers offer the possibility to link a fixed IP address to a MAC (or hardware) address.15:59
mefisto__dorkface: you probably wouldn't want non-monospace fonts, otherwise formatting using tabs and spaces won't look as intended.15:59
ericwlAnd you don't need to change anything to the computers.15:59
dorkfacemefisto__: ah16:00
NiteOwl255i guess, so there no way to get it working under the current config?16:00
dorkfaceThanks all, though :)16:00
ericwlPerhaps, just no experience with it...16:01

SlimeyPetetrouble with sourceforge is there's so much on it and it's difficult to find anything interesting unless you know exactly what you want17:15
JavaBeansAt work we have our own system setup like that, so everything is internal17:16
wernerJavaBeans: i am dev within the SF-community and i am glad with the features of the platforme17:16
JavaBeansWhich is why I never really checked out sourceforge17:16
wernerJavaBeans: okay, i see :)17:16
JavaBeansBut if I am going to be doing this from home that would be awesome!17:16
alien__SlimerPete: i get error17:16
SlimeyPetealien__: what's the error?17:17
wernerJavaBeans: try it :)17:17
alien__Error: Conflicts with the instlaled package  "apache2-mpm-worker"17:17
SlimeyPetealien__: hmm. You could try "apt-get remove apache2-mpm-worker" first. It will tell you what it wants to remove. Check that it isn't trying to remove something which you want.17:18

alien__how to set it ? :S17:24
SlimeyPetealien__: look in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf or in the /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/ scripts17:24
Alex135whats the name of the plugin that firefox likes to install when it wants java?17:24
SlimeyPetelook for your directory (the one you are putting the file in eg /var/www)17:24
Alex135there are a few of them i know...17:25
SlimeyPetethere should be a "<Directory /var/www>" bit. Put "Options +ExecCGI" in that bit.17:25
SlimeyPetethen do "sudo apache2ctl restart"17:25
JavaBeansAlright, heading out for a while17:27
alien__<SlimeyPete> there should be a "<Directory /var/www>" bit. Put "Options +ExecCGI" in that bit.17:27

andreas__seems like i would have to have a working copy of mint...20:12
andreas__i first thought of jidgo, but i didn't found a jigdo template newer than the official release..20:13
intelikeyKrap. to install festival, i have to install both perl and python   ;/20:13
intelikeyso i guess i just won't install it.      but i may hack it....20:14

oloughlin75right now the touchpad, i set the driver to synaptics in the xorg.conf, and i ran a utility that told me to add something else, which broke xorg23:17
CrashedNoo! My exe failed :(23:17
ignoramusoloughlin75: did you add "SHM" to your xorg.conf?23:17
nosrednaekimCrashed: yeah... wine is not very reliable23:17
oloughlin75Thats what I tried, and thats what broke it23:17
oloughlin75is it JUST "SHM"?23:18
ignoramusoloughlin75: are you still having problems?23:18
oloughlin75I am up and running, but I couldnt get the UI before23:18
oloughlin75i add "SHMConfig"23:18
nosrednaekimCrashed: I have to go.... good luck with Linux :)23:18
oloughlin75should it be just "SHM"?23:19
ignoramusno- you should add "Options" > "SHMconfig" > "on"23:19

[mfk]i've a problem with the MBR of my hd023:25
ignoramusso anyone else having problems with volume on the mplayer-plugin?23:25
[mfk]who can help me?23:25
ignoramus[mfk] prolly someone :) what's the problem?23:25
sayucyof[mfk]: you used linux only?23:27
[mfk]i've installed from Wubi Kubuntu 7.10 on my USB-HDD, i cannot make the bootup on it because my motherboard doesn't support the bootup on USB device..however, i want to cancel the MBR, and then retry to install it (from the Lice CD)23:27
[mfk]no i've windows xp on hd023:28
ignoramus[mfk]: so you want to partition your internal HDD, right?23:28
[mfk]i want to install it on my external HDD23:29
ignoramus[mfk]: hmm... i see the dilemma... :/23:29
[mfk]but i want to cancel the MBR of the previous installation and understand where to install the bootloader during the next installation23:29
oloughlin75ignoramus: I just added your xorg.conf info for the touchpad and it hasnt done anything?23:30
sayucyofneed usb boot23:30
[mfk]yes i know but i've read it's possible to make a bootable cd that make the bootup on the USB device23:31
oloughlin75The touchpad thing I downloaded still tells me Shared Memory not accessible, please add SHMConfig on...23:31
ignoramusoloughlin75: you restarted x?23:31
oloughlin75ignoramus: yes23:31
ignoramus[mfk]: maybe this can help? > http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=8081123:31
ignoramusoloughlin75: please pastebin your entire xorg.conf23:32
[mfk]ignoramus: wait i open it23:32
mixedcan anyone recommend me an open source DB?23:32
[mfk]exatly :)23:33
heinkel_111mixed: MySQL23:33
[mfk]exactly :)23:33
oloughlin75ignoramus: http://pastebin.org/18972 is my xorg23:33
heinkel_111unless you need something very secure for a high number of users23:33
mixedis there any specific reason why you would prefer MySQL over postGRE?23:33
ignoramusoloughlin75: i think i see the problem.. hang on23:34
themonotonesqlite or postgresql23:34
ignoramusi've found that mysql sometimes is a resource hog (it managed my Amarok db)23:35
themonotoneI'm a fan of sqlite honestly :-) no need to setup a db and have yet another login23:35
[mfk]ignoramus: i'm printing it, i'm going to bed and i'll read it23:36
mixedignoramus, so which DB  you would recommend?23:37
[mfk]ingoramus: perhaps i'll make kubuntu dreams ;) however thanks. i believe this will help me to understand more about Kubuntu23:37
[mfk]goodnight to everybody23:37
ignoramusdr_willis is the better source, but i've had better luck with sqlite23:37
Dr_willisIve only used mysql with Mythtv23:37
sayucyof[mfk]: wait23:37
Dr_willisWhich to use - deopends on your needs.23:38
[mfk]sayucyof: okay :)23:38
oloughlin75ignoramus: Do you see what m problem is/?23:38
sayucyofwhy you dont want install mbr?23:38
ignoramusoloughlin75: see if adding this to your xorg.conf helps > http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/55546/23:38
mixedthemonotone, would you know which DB is most widely use, open source wise?23:38
ignoramusoloughlin75: once added, you just have to restart X (Ctrl+Alt+Bkspc) to put it into effect23:39
sayucyofif you know  MBR fix command23:39
themonotonesure, bdb23:39
sayucyoffdisk /mbr  on windows cmd23:39
themonotoneits used on probably every unix box known to man by some program or other :-)23:39
[mfk]i simply want to cancel the MBR created on the installation of Kubuntu from Wubi!23:39
[mfk]sayucyof: i've tried but nothing, when i rebot i re-have the same MBR, cannot understand why!23:40
[mfk]i've tried also fixmbr command in dos23:41
sayucyofboot from hd0?23:41
[mfk]yes the mbr is on hd023:41
[mfk]it was installed there automatically from wubi23:42
=== paulj1 is now known as pauljw
=== ubuntu is now known as Odysseas
[mfk]i cannot understand why!23:43
Dr_willisi dident think wubi used  a mbr. I thought it some how alteree the windows boot files/configs.. but ive never used wubi. only read a little about it.23:43
[mfk]it's an enigma23:43
[mfk]i want my previous MBR back23:44
[mfk]than try to reinstall it23:44
[mfk]yes, lol!23:44
mefisto__error when trying to start konqueror or kaffeine: Inconsistency detected by ld.so: ../sysdeps/i386/dl-machine.h: 550: elf_machine_rel_relative: Assertion `((reloc->r_info) & 0xff) == 8' failed!23:45
ignoramusdr_willis: you think Super Grub Disk could help him?23:45
Dr_willisNo idea, if wubi altered the xp/whatever boot  ini files.. I dont see how.23:45
sayucyofread here23:46
Dr_willisIf it truely altered the mbr, then 'fdisk /mbr' should of installed the normal windows mbr.23:46
[mfk]exactly, should!!!23:46
ignoramus[mfk]: what kind of output do you get when running fdisk?23:47
Dr_willisi would have to say - check the wubi docs on what it does.  - I did not think it messed with the mbr.23:47
[mfk]ignoramus: nothing!23:47
oloughlin75SOOO easy to plunge into command line!23:48
ignoramusoloughlin75: did you get your touchpad working?23:49
oloughlin75ignoramus: Thank you a lot alot! Mouse works!23:49
ignoramusoloughlin75:  good! :)23:49
[mfk]i believe it was the easiest thing of the world23:49
ignoramus[mfk]: did you say you have windows on the internal hdd?  xp or vista?23:49
oloughlin75ignoramus: I had to take out the lin that you used that specified the ocnfigured mouse-- i erased that input device23:49
oloughlin75thanks a ton for the help23:50
ignoramus[mfk]: you should be able to use the XP Recovery part of the install disc to fix mbr, right?23:50
ignoramusoloughlin75: no problem23:50
[mfk]ignoramus & Dr_willis: i didn't disinstalled WUBI!!!! I'm really a dull!23:50
ignoramus[mfk]: dude, calm down.  what I'm saying is, "Do you have your XP install disc handy?"23:51
[mfk]yes i've tried it from my installation cd23:51
ignoramus[mfk]: if so, you should be able to insert the disc, and go through the recovery process to "Repair Windows" - it will overwrite your messed up mbr23:52
[mfk]i've done it but i'm supposing the problem is because i haven't disinstalled Wubi!23:52
[mfk]i try to reboot and i come back here23:52
ignoramus[mfk]: wubi's not even on that hdd!23:53
mixedhow do you install synaptic?23:53
mixedforget it, it's already installed LoL23:53
oloughlin75One more question, how do I install w32codecs? It is telling me it is referenced by another package23:54
ignoramusoloughlin75: sudo apt-get install w32codecs23:54
ignoramusoloughlin75: oh, i didn't see that last part... does it say what package?23:55
europlantThanks you to nosrednaekim, ubotu (robot:) and Crashed for advise of install skype, it is easy23:56
[mfk]mates i've solved!!23:56
[mfk]it was Wubi!!23:57
ignoramusoloughlin75: try running "sudo apt-get -f install"23:57
ignoramus[mfk]: how did you fix it?23:57
[mfk]now the MBR is returned as previuosly: when i've disinstalled Wubi i've seen it cancelled a file in c: called kubuntu.mbr, i believe this file was call at the boot from the boot.ini, a kind of .css into the .htm!23:58
[mfk]i'ìve simply unistalled Wubi :)23:58
ignoramus[mfk]: facepalm.jpg23:58
