tantric132Hey all I have a quick question about Swap space. I'm about to install ubuntu for the first time. I have two 74gig partitions. one, XP will be installed and the other will be ubuntu. my question is how do I make swap space? i have another hard drive too if that helps00:14
Kibbles_pike_: cool... thanks00:14
pike_Leechzilla: well just turn off wep or wpa for now. can you just connect?00:14
jjgalvezcan I install XP after I've already installed Ubuntu?00:15
Leechzillapike_: yes00:15
omegastatTantric132: Ubuntu will make it's own swap space when you install00:15
Jack_Sparrowjjgalvez: yes00:15
pike_Leechzilla: ok is this a lappy or desktop computer?00:15
amenadotantric132-> during installation's partitioning phase, select new paritition and assign space to it, also making it swap type00:15
nickrudtantric132: of the 74 you gave to ubuntu, cut off about 2xram, up to about 2gb for swap00:15
Leechzillapike_: but I need encryption00:15
tantric132but when I installed it before it said that there was no swap space assigned and that it was recommeded to add it00:15
Leechzillapike_: Laptop00:15
cellwind929Jack_Sparrow: I just searched for it, I do not have a Drivers/Driver18/ folder00:15
Jack_Sparrowjjgalvez: You just need to setup grub manually, if ubuntu goes on last it does that for you00:15
jjgalvezjack_sparrow, anything I need to look out for? what about the boot record, will I still be able to boot into ubuntu when I'm done or will I have to fix something?00:16
pike_Leechzilla: oh.. youd prefer not to use the terminal to connect?00:16
nickrudtantric132: yes, make two partitions out of the 74gb for ubuntu00:16
Jack_Sparrowcellwind929: That tutorial does not tell us anything00:16
Leechzillapike_: yeah00:16
* Kibbles_ is out. thanks all00:16
cellwind929Jack_Sparrow: yeah, it just assumes that I know where to put the firmware files, thats why I thought someone here might know00:17
Jack_Sparrowjjgalvez: You will only have windows after you install windows00:17
tantric132nickrud, i have premade partitions if this helps. I am running the live cd atm. my plan is to reboot, install XP first on the empty unallocated part of the drive(74.52GB). then I will install ubuntu on the ext3 partition I have made(74.53GB)00:17
nathan64Jack_Sparrow: are you busy?00:17
jjgalvezJack_sparrow, but my ubuntu install will still be there right? just not bootable until I reinstall grub right?00:17
nickrudtantric132: yes, that will work.00:18
tantric132nickrud, and also if it helps, when im installing ubuntu and it ask for which option I would like to do with partitoning, there is like 3 options. one is split the selected partition in half, the other is to creat a new partition and the last is manual00:18
Jack_Sparrownathan64: Yes a bit..  is it a quick question?00:18
tantric132nickrud, so which do I choose?00:18
tantric132when in installation00:18
nathan64Jack_Sparrow: sort of00:18
nickrudtantric132: use guided partitioning00:18
pike_Leechzilla: for wep you could use gtkwifi instead of network manager umm with wpa_sup i dont think there is a good front end other than network manager00:18

hsuhjulz: check your .bashrc or .zshrc or something like that00:21
hsuhjulz: maybe temporarly rename it00:21
nickrudtantric132: I don't remember it that way; look at pointing your install at the empty partition, and letting it define how it will break it up into system or swap. If you have problems with finding what you want, come back and someone (I'll be around more later) will walk you through manual if necessary00:22
hsuhor not.. i dunno. i'd do that.00:22

Che-AnarcWhat is a makefile? and how do I compile it?00:53
Tommckahave - use "dmesg" and look through it... it will say something about the drivers used during boot00:53
TommckChe-Anarc - a makefile tells you how to compile.00:54
TommckChe-Anarc - usually there's a "README" file in the directory with something that requires compilation, telling you how to compile and install it00:54
Che-AnarcYes but this one says "I assume reader has understand of C & Makefiles00:55
TommckChe-Anarc - run "make" in that directory00:55

tcpdumpgodokay, so it sees one drive correct?01:06
tcpdumpgodor "one drive"01:07
Tommcktcpdumpgod - yes01:07
exneohelp plz01:07
tcpdumpgodWell Tommck since it cant distinguish between /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1, its installing grub on the MBR of both drives.01:07
tcpdumpgodCause it sees it as 1 drive.01:07
Tommcktcpdumpgod there is only one drive01:07
Tommcktcpdumpgod the raid-1 makes it look like a single drive to the OS01:07
Tommckit just needs a disk controller driver01:07
tcpdumpgodTommck, thats what im saying dude.01:08
tcpdumpgodthe ROM on the hardware raid controller takes care of the mirroring.01:08

tcpdumpgodTommck, when you install the os, it sees the one drive /dev/sda correct?01:08
Tommcktcpdumpgod - yes01:08
Tommcktcpdumpgod - so yes.. it physically writes it to 2 disks....01:09

leeping2008Hey there, I'm running into a simple problem with copying operating systems.  I have a 250GB HD with my OS on it, and I also have an empty 500GB HD.  I installed Ubuntu on the 500GB using the LiveCD (just for the partitioning), and then I deleted the whole file tree on the 500GB and copied the file tree on the 250GB over.  However, I'm getting a "GRUB Hard Disk Error" if I boot up with the 500gb01:39
leeping2008What am I doing wrong?  Is there a better way for me to copy the entire contents of my 250GB onto the 500GB, and have the 500GB work as my primary HD with OS and all?01:39
Jack_Sparrowkovinha: May I have a quick pm01:39
kovinhaaye! arrr01:40

Jack_Sparrow File xorgconf found in ltsp-server01:42
thom_only takes a second to chown01:43
leeping2008I've gotten to the point where I used the LiveCD to install GRUB onto my 500GB hard drive (the one with a complete Ubuntu filesystem, but wouldn't boot)01:43
leeping2008Currently, GRUB loads, but then the system hangs at "Loading, please wait..."01:43
Jack_SparrowPRAEDO: Did you catch that01:43
roddersgsimps: try sudo ethtool eth001:44
thom_500gb still amazes me..01:44

brandonc503what do i type in terminal to use the sudo thing?01:44
thom_sudo -i01:45
roddersgj_, you have to install the linux-restricted-kernel first, then enable nvidia with nvidia-glx enable, then change dpkg-reconfigure xerser-xorg01:45
benanzocan anyone suggest a way to download a remote file to a remote ftp server without a shell on either01:45
roddersgj_, can send you the link I think01:45
benanzois it possible?01:45
ginitahi good afternoon01:45
onesandzeroshello all.  Any of you guys know how I can see all the make targets in the kernel?  I'm building from source and need a little refresher on how it all works.01:45
Jack_Sparrowbrandonc503: USe sudo before a command for root access.  If calling up a gui app use gksudo01:45
Jack_SparrowOldToker: you dont01:45
simpsroddersg, is there a command for wireless? i use wireless01:45
ubotuwebmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system. See !ebox instead.01:46
roddersgj_,  try looking here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/Nvidia01:46
OldTokerJack_Sparrow, I don't see it in adept...01:46
roddersgsimps, how about sudo ethtool wlan0 ?01:46
OldTokerand I kinda need it?01:46
Dex-FreudiiI have a sempron 3500+ which is based on AMD64 technology, which means that it supports 64-bit01:46
Dex-Freudiiand I have Ubuntu for 32-bit installed, am I loosing something? how better would it be to install the 64bit version?01:46
thom_or go to restricted drivers for nvidia01:46
Jack_SparrowOldToker: Please see what I just posted.. .. It is NOT advised01:46
roddersgDex-Freudii, Speed from 64-bit packages, but ask yourself what you loose if you use 64-bit, a lot of other packages don't work well01:47
ginitai install ubuntu linux in my macbook pro... everything works pefect exept the light screen.. for some reason ubuntu low the light then i click to turn the light and 1 minutes later it take it low again01:47
ginitai wonder what is the problem?01:47
OldTokerok Jack_Sparrowl:  Please enlighten me on a nice gui then.. that I can use to manage my user accounts?01:47
Jack_SparrowDex-Freudii: Use 32 until you are really comfortable with it.. THe speed dif is minimal01:47
Dex-Freudiiroddersg, which packages won't work?01:47
Dex-Freudiiroddersg, why is that?01:48
simpsroddersg, doesn't give me speed01:48
Dex-FreudiiJack_Sparrow, what are the advantages of using 64bit then?01:48
roddersgDex-Freudii, on 64-bit you get screwed on the Firefox extensions, java, flash etc, have to look for workarounds01:48
ginitaany onw have idea about this problem?01:48
ginitawith the macbook pro?01:48
roddersgDex-Freudii, only if you want it as a server,  as for packages, they are all there except for the latest versions01:49
ginitaubuntu takes the screen light very low01:49
ginitahow can i keep it up?01:49
Jack_SparrowDex-Freudii: YOu can make them all work, but you would need to use ndiswrapper (I think thats right) and it just isnt the same01:49
roddersgsimps - sorry don't have wireless on this machine to test01:49
simpsroddersg, can't find a way for eth0 to see transfer speed then?01:49
OldTokerJack_Sparrow, can ya point me in the right direction for a nice user / groups management GUI?01:49
Jack_SparrowDex-Freudii: that is to get 32 bit to run under the 64 bit os01:49
brandonc503so if i change the min word len setting in my.ctn or what ever... do i have to remake my tables? or just restart comp?01:49
roddersgsimps, try googling for your answer: ubuntu wireless speed command-line01:50
Jack_SparrowOldToker: Sorry, I dont know one off the top of my head.01:50
Dex-Freudiiroddersg, and Jack_Sparrow thank you01:50

ginitahow can i fix this?01:51
OldTokerok Jack_Sparrow,  Well then unfortunately I guess I'm stuck with webmin.... at any rate I found instructions for it.. I have used it for like 2 years now.. I'm familiar with it..   thanks anyway :)01:51
roddersgsimps, iwlist command01:51
Dex-Freudiiginita, which ubuntu are you using?01:51
Jack_SparrowOldToker: As long as you are aware of the risks01:51
ginita6.10 i think01:51
OldTokerJack_Sparrow, there's risks involved in just puting a computer in the internet now days..01:51
Jack_SparrowOldToker: Did you even look into Ebox01:51
ginitathe one that holds update for longer time01:52
roddersgsimps, yes, I think iwlist is what you are looking for01:52
Dex-Freudiiginita, upgrade to 7.04 or 7.1001:52
OldTokerJack_Sparrow, no but I will thank you...01:52
ginitawell im not sure dex01:52
ginitahow can i see my01:52
Dex-Freudiiwhy not?01:52
Jack_Sparrowok, good luck01:52
asdrubalroddersg, I think iwconfig is what you want to use to set speed01:52
roddersgasdrubal, he dosen't want to set speed, he wants the characteristics of the interface01:52
asdrubalroddersg, iwconfig01:52
asdrubalroddersg, without any arguments01:53

Hajuuhave you tried restarting?02:01
bazhangdeva turn off compiz and try again--also quit with the enter key02:01
spudraticqI don't know if this helps but for me it was my card windows would shut it down and the ubuntu driver could not turn it on02:01
oboy03hopw come most of my updates become corrupted?02:01
deva_umm ok ill try turning off compiz02:02
deva_but i actually dont know how to :p02:02

deva_im like a total noob here02:02
_Oz_for those of you who've used photoshop extensively...  just how close can you get with gimp?02:02
_Oz_can you really do work with it?02:02
Hajuu_Oz_: sure, its equal to photoshop or better02:02
bazhangdeva you are not going to get much help if you keep up with the three words and enter routine--no kidding02:03
Hajuucheck out gimpshop also for a single window version02:03
pyr3ca.archive.ubuntu.com seems to be down.... does that resolve to multiple Canadian mirrors?  Or just one?  Should I find the IP of another of the mirrors and use my hosts file to force new DNS?02:03
Hajuuoboy03: try fetching them again..02:03
_Casey_i just go to skype.com and dl it, is it the 2.0 beta?02:03
_Oz_hajuu: *really*?  I mean, **really**?  I've used photoshop for years.  It is the industry standard.  Is anyone doing professional design work with gimp?02:03
Jack_Sparrow_Oz_: I am not a photoshop person,  I use corel.. but gimp can do a lot02:03
spudraticqwhat kind of nic card do you have garou02:03
Che-AnarcWhats a good alternative to Winamp?02:03

Hajuuoboy03: use apt-get remove --purge (I think)02:04
spudraticqgarou what type of nic card do you have mine was realteck02:04
garouErrrr, something really generic... RTL81somethingsomething, IIRC.02:04
deva_ok im sorry but please try to bear with me bazhang02:04
Hajuu_Oz_: Personally, I HATE photoshop and I (as a graphic designer) fail to see how it became the industry standard except by them saying so.02:04
pyr3Che-Anarc, XMMS  though I don't know if you'll be able to find an equivalent to any winamp plugins you might use02:04
_Casey_where do i find the skype beta02:04
garouHajuu: Good marketing?02:05
spudraticqthat is most likly the proplem deb is shutting it off and ubuntu can't turn it baack on02:05
Jack_Sparrow_c it isnt clearly marked and it will say for feisty.. but look for 2.002:05
Hajuugarou: yeah thats it I guess..02:06
Jack_Sparrow_Casey_: that was for you02:06
spudraticqI know how to turn it on in windows but this is my first time using ubuntu so I dont know how to do in deb02:06
garouspudraticq: Shouldn't I *not* receive packets, then? Also, considering that Ubuntu is based on Debian, that'd be _weird_.02:06
oboy03Errors were encountered while processing:02:06

_Casey_i did, on google02:06
bazhangdeva no can do--you buck the ops here and my patience is at an end--try restarting compiz; alt --f2 compiz --replace, then run the video again, after having quit and restarted the video player02:06
_Casey_found it02:06
_Casey_let me see if it works02:06
spudraticqcan you ping02:06
oboy03how do i fix it?>02:06
Jack_Sparrowoboy03: Did you ever post your sources.list02:07
garouNeither can successfully ping the other.02:07
Hajuuhttp://xkcd.com/327/ -- lol02:07
deva_bazhang: thank you ill will do that :)02:07
bazhangdeva after that, if it still does not work, then try some other video players, there a great many number, and see if any of them work. when you have exhausted those possibilities, then we can discuss your issue further02:08
oboy03it seems that i can only update security updates without problems02:08
_Casey_ok skype video works02:08
HajuuI thought only a few could do HD video under linux?02:08
Hajuulike uhm02:08
_Casey_anyone want to test?02:08
CrazyPhil_Hi. I cannot delete one folder with Ubuntu. I start with "sudo rm -r /folder/location". It is located on a NTFS partition. I have try with the ntfs-3g mount driver. I have also try to change the owner with the "sudo chown -R yourname foldername" command. Any idea? thank you02:08
oboy03but when i check recommended updates in the software sources, i often have trouble02:08
Jack_SparrowLjL: You are just too fast...02:08
spudraticqthats what I would say it is the card must be enabled after shut down some one here must know how to do it in deb02:08
garoubbl, time for experimenting...02:08
bazhangoboy03: and third party repos in that list?02:08
_Casey_so how do i get my microphone working now ;x02:09

_Casey_front mic boost?02:10
oboy03bazhang: ADSL, stable, dont know about other mirror02:11
bazhangdeva_: read my suggestion in full--quit compiz NOT restart it; try several other video players out there (there are four or five others) and then come back--five seconds is not enough time to do all that02:11
_Casey_shr1k3 is it front mic boost?02:11
oboy03bazhang: im only using the software sources, and whatever ubuntu recommends for update02:11
_Casey_or is that the mic port on the front?02:11

INOSHUI have a few questions... 1) Is it possible to install as a dual boot with an existing windows? Is a seperate partition needed?02:47
FlannelINOSHU: yes, and yes.02:47
_Oz_Inoshy: you certainly can.02:47
mikeazbazhang: i don't know. my gparted doesn't even start up because i don't have a floppy drive. isn't that silly?02:47
_Oz_a separate partition is necessary.02:47
bazhangINOSHU: yes and yes02:47
INOSHU2) Network printer sharing. Compatible with other windows sytems on the network?02:47
INOSHUlike, if the printer's on my computer, that is02:47
Flannelumdoistres: Alright, well, build-essential is the package you need to be able to compile.  But make sure you actually need to compile, before going through all that work02:47
_Casey_IdleOne: No internet websites work?02:47
umdoistresFlannel: what ?..02:47
umdoistresops, sorry..02:48

Dr_willisbye all02:48
Flannelumdoistres: What program are you trying to install?02:48

ubotuLeChacal: To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « dpkg --get-selections > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo dpkg --set-selections < my-packages && sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade » - See also !automate02:49

demonspork When I select My Ubuntu Gutsy install from the boot menu, it says "Failed to mount selected partition" even though the partition mounts fine via IFS in windows and in my Feisty install. I have made no changes to the boot options/loaders since the last successful boot of the system, which was yesterday.03:07
putnumor the i386?03:07
demonspork Whenever I log in to my Ubuntu Feisty install, it loads the desktop and promptly the display crashes and I am back at the login screen. It still does this when I use the failsafe login, extra info: running c-f and kiba-dock. When the system first boots, It takes longer to finish loading whatever causes the crash so I have had time to hit Alt+f2 and type "metacity --replace" but even loading a different wm didn't fix the problem.03:07

demon_sporkjames__, no, someone on google said that panel transparency was the cause of their problem. They fixed it by logging into KDE and using xnest to log into the damaged gnome session, which worked for some reason, and change their settings.

JangariBagelMaster: nautilus is the file browser03:48
BagelMasterJangari Badkitty: Oh, wow, never knew that!03:48
BagelMasterBadkitty: I'm pretty sure it's compiling the parts03:48
badkittyBagelMaster: The file browser.. from what ive gathered thats what it is03:48
y_o_ucould someone please tell me how the heck i can ping google.com from 7.10, but not browse to it in firefox?03:48
badkittyBagelMaster: Great03:48
Jangarii didn't either until a little while ago03:48
badkittyy_o_u: Hmm.. running any proxies?03:49
BagelMasterBadkitty: Using a PIII doesn't mean it's going to work fat thought :/03:49
y_o_ubut be able to browse to it in a windows 2000 vm running in 7.10? while having ipv6 turned off?03:49
JangariI kept asking if there was a command to 'open' the working directory in a filebrowser, turns out it's just "nautilus /directory"03:49
y_o_ubadkitty: no proxies, but good thought03:49
y_o_ujust wierd stuff03:49
BagelMasterBadkitty: Argh, it tried to open it in gedit03:49
kaoticsnowJangari: thanks03:50
Jangarifound it, kaoticsnow?03:50
badkittyy_o_u: Hmmm its got to be a setting in firefox... This situation happened to me in windows (imagine that) I could ping a site, but not find it in the browser. WHen I returned to default settings everything worked03:50
roshanaccording to the book i'm reading, it says that if u use dh -h . in a directory it will tell u the partition. however, with the directory /sys it shows the partition as /sys. However that does not exits, can someone explain why it shows that.03:50
badkittyy_o_u: Maybe you can try reset to defaul your settings03:50
nickrudy_o_u: are you using bridged networking in the vm, so it provides it's own dns?  check /etc/resolv.conf  in linux, that's usually the culprit for your symtoms03:50
umdoistreswhats that message when i try to search a apt ? "the aplication apt can be foun in this packages sun java-jdk" something like this..03:51
badkittyy_o_u: this is a vm?03:51
y_o_unickrud: i thought the same, unfortunately, its correct (and its resolving great at the cli)03:51
Flannelroshan: if you type "mount" you'll see all sorts of non-physical partitions that are mounted.  Theyre various things used by the OS (ones a ramdisk for the kernel, etc)03:51
nickrudumdoistres: are you translating the error message? Where are you seeing it?03:51
y_o_ubadkitty: default settings in firefox you mean? and its a win2k vmware image, running in 7.10, from disk03:52
frank23roshan: more properly, they're filesystems03:52
DoYouKnowAny fixes yet for that exploit? I read somewhere that the fix is already in the live source trees for hardy03:53
ScuniziWhat's the channel for Evolution? won't be needed if anyone here can tell me how to forward a message and actually have it include the original attachment.03:53

Jangaridoes anyone know how to get my laptop switching off the speakers when headphones are plugged in?03:54
nickrudumdoistres:  what are you doing when you see that error?03:55
MeshezabeelJangari, do you have a different set of headphones you could try?03:55
frank23roshan: no the filesystems are what's mounted. either virtual ones or physical ones (that are on a partition)03:55
Jangarii do, hold on, but i doubt it's the headphones, as the same headphones worked well under windows,03:55
frank23Jangari: try playing the the switches in the sound mixer03:56
umdoistresnickrud: oh.. i forget, but thanks for the atention..03:56
Jack_SparrowJangari: Some laptops dont use a physical switch from the pin when the headphones go in to kill the speakers they do it with software..  not sure how to fix it though03:56
frank23Jangari: there might be a switch that disables speakers when headphones are plugged in03:56
Jangarii think it's software, since the same laptop under windows used to disable the speakers like i wanted03:57
roshanroshan: ah, tyvm frank. that clears up a lot.03:58
Jangaribut there ain't nothing in prefs > sound03:58
roshanfrank: ah, tvm frank. that clears up a lot03:58
Hammer89Jangari: I have the same problem... still haven't figured out a fix for it03:58
frank23Jangari: did you look in the sound mixer app? the one with the different channels (Master, PCM...)03:58

frank23Jangari: in KDE it's KMix not sure about gnome03:58
Hammer89Jangari: out of curiosity... what laptop are you using?03:59
MeshezabeelJangari, you are probably correct, if it works under windows then it should work under linux. I've had headphones in the past that didn't work properly and the sound would play through both the headphones and speakers.03:59

CaptainMorgannot getting a decent answer... and ubuntu folks tend to be smart- plus still all started around the evolution of pidgin:  is yahoo only allowed to talk to yahoo? (IM's), running multiple machines, multiple clients and it appears AIM users can't communicate with known yahoo users. The yahoo users say I'm offline, and I say the yahoo users are offline.. is there some incompatibility issue going on? Ive tested Trillian, AIM, and04:02

bastid_raZorCaptainMorgan; from my understanding you can't cross talk IM's .. pidgin allows you to have only 1 application that handles them all. that doesn't mean if you have yahoo you can talk to someone on aim via a yahoo account04:04

Katanovaso noone can help with the 8600 GT problem :(04:48

Rubinthreefcata, but best to let xp do the whole thing its way04:52
puffthreefcata: Be advised, from what I'm told, that's just barely big enough.  Also, winxp doesn't have an explicit swap partition, so you'll have to watch and make sure you always have at least 1gb free in the XP partition.04:52
nomopofomoRubin, where can I find local.conf?04:52

Katanovathe problem is, i cant find these other disks :p05:13
ubotuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD05:13
DrDerekI lost the game05:14
Rubinjumbers, best thing i can tell you is to buy 300 gig ide disk, and an external usb enclosure. you can use it to transfer your files AND as a backup in case something happens.05:14
r3n0cis 47C to high for my cpu temp? and 42C for my mobo?05:14
r3n0c(when just idle)05:14
Rubinjumbers, failing that, you can transfer your files to the new pc using scp05:14

demon_sporkbecuase it doesn't add to a playlist like most media players06:57
Neekuxavieran: in MS Visio or Rational Rose, while drawing the connections, if two lines are pasing each other, it automatically reorders the lines so that they don't overlap on each other, doesn't dia do this?06:57

Netkillerxavieran: How can I do that when I can't see anything?07:17
SHMOwhere abouts would it show up? on the desktop?07:17
patogenIs there some easy way to make the cursor "disappear" when I haven't used it for a while and that it reapperas when I move then mouse?07:17
canthonyi thought it had a dedicated folder07:17
xavieranNetkiller, Oh...07:17
hadesHello All, I have tried to add dual monitors to my laptop, and now it wont boot up.. keeps hanging at running local boot scripts07:17
hadesany idea how to fix this?07:17
puffcompwiz18: I'm working on uninstalling the ATI drivers and going back to the ubuntu restricted ATI drivers07:17
=== hades is now known as Hadeshorn
compwiz18puff: good luck07:17
puffcompwiz18: Thanks :-)07:17
compwiz18puff: sorry, I've tried to do that and failed.. :(07:17
puffcompwiz18: Really?  What'd you end up doing?07:18
canthonyhades did ya back up your xorg07:18
compwiz18puff: going back to the latest drivers - they're the only ones I could get to work07:18
Hadeshorncanthony: nope.. I know i should have done07:18
sn00zerNetkiller, under the subsection "display" look for the Modes line, take out the 1440x900 and 1280x800 assuming you aren't going to try to get that high of a resolution07:18
xavieranNetkiller, Has the screen worked before?07:18
Hadeshorncanthony: I can get into recovery mode and dont know how to unstuff this07:18
puffcompwiz18: Latest as in the latest in ubuntu's apt servers or the latest from ati's site?07:18
canthonyi would re run the dpkg-reconfigure on xorg07:18
canthonyuse xrandr to add dual monitor if you can07:19
compwiz18puff: latest as in from ati's site07:19
compwiz18puff: the ubuntu ones didn't want to play07:19
puffcompwiz18: Ah, I'm trying the drivers from ATI's site right now, but the performance sucks and is glitchy to boot.07:19
SlimGIs there a way of telling if a package is a metapackage?07:19
Hadeshorncanthony how do i dpkg-reconfigure for xorg?07:19
compwiz18puff: tell me about it. what card do you hae?07:19
puffcompwiz18: I'm on a thinkpad t43p with ATI firegl v3200.07:19
canthonyif you can get to a terminal07:19
canthonyvim your current xorg.conf07:20
canthonyor gedit07:20
griffi1dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg07:20
canthonyor whatever text editor you use07:20
xavieranor nano07:20
canthonyok there ya go07:20
clearzenOkay, I had compiz working fine on this machine until I installed updates and now the system refuses to load the glx module. I looked through Xorg.0.log and came up with this error dlopen: /usr/lib/libGLcore.so.1: undefined symbol: _nv000042g can anyone help me?07:20
canthonythe command is in your xorg.conf in the top credits in case you ever need it again07:20
demon_sporkjoe is the way to go07:20
compwiz18puff: I've got a compaq v2000 with a 200m07:20
compwiz18puff: although I have to say, the drivers work much better on faster computers, I find07:20
demon_sporkas does everything else07:21
SHMOi'm looking in /dev07:21
SHMOcan't find anything there07:21
puffcompwiz18: The ubuntu gutsy restricve worked great, but suspend didn't work.  Somebody suggested trying the ATI from-the-ati-site drivers but those are turning to be worse... unless I'm missing some kind of config change or something.07:21
patogenIs there some easy way to make the cursor "disappear" when I haven't used it for a while and that it reapperas when I move then mouse?07:21
canthonyi have compiz running 1280x1024 on a 32mb nvidia desktop... an old comp i bought from the college for $10007:21
Hadeshornwhere is the location of the boot log?07:21
SlimGIs there a way of telling if a package is a metapackage? (is language-pack-no a metapackage?)07:21
canthonyi had to edit the compiz wrapper script to allow the low memory07:22
SHMOpatogen, maybe you'll have to get used to moving the mouse to the right side of the screen to make it disappear07:22
clearzenWhat would stop the glx module from loading?07:22
demon_sporknice canthony07:22
compwiz18puff: that's about what I found -- I never knew why the latest were so much slower07:22
puffcompwiz18: I'm about ready to give up on them (unless you have suggestions).  I'm trying to figure out just how to revert... thinking maybe "apt-get remove" on each of the custom ATI driver packages.07:22
puffcompwiz18: As a start.07:22
bullgard4SlimG: Look its name up in Synaptic. Then read its descriptive text. This will often tell if it is a meta package.07:22
canthonyit runs really well, except when to many windows are open then i get black boxes till i close some ;)07:22
compwiz18puff: that's what I'd suggest... again, good luck :)07:23
patogenSHMO: Well maybe, but if I can get it work like I wish I would rather try that :)07:23
demon_sporkI am running c-f at 1680x1050 on a geforce 8800GTS 320MB 0_o07:23
demon_sporkwell, when I am booted into a GUI07:23
SHMOpatogen, maybe it doesn't exist, and you'll have to write a python script to do it07:23
canthonyi was so happy not to long ago i finally got my tvout and vga out working on my t43 laptop07:23
canthonyi didnt know anything about xrandr until then07:24
demon_sporkright now I am stuck at command line until my grep search of the home directory is complete07:24
canthonyit was eeeeasy after that07:24
xavieranpatogen, Try posting to the forums too...more people will see your question there...07:24
patogenSHMO: Maybe then I won't bother :) It's not *that* important, but I find an easy solution I'll do it :)07:24
canthonyHadeshorn hows it goin07:24
canthonyor did your x puke07:24
patogenxavieran: Yeah I guess I can try that :)07:25
SHMOpatogen, it would still be worthwhile posting in a forum so other people will find the same solution useful07:25

Gumbyoxeimon: does ifconfig return any IP address for your network device?08:32
suiWGGMk yeah the best way to lean about it is just to google text files and grab ebooks off torrents and stuff08:32
oxeimonGumby: normally when my internet is working, ifconfig gives 3 sections, "eth0, eth1", and something else08:32
Gumbyoxeimon: I am guessing that your network issues do not lie with nm-applet (it is only an applet afterall) but more with your network settings/configuration08:32
oxeimonGumby: now, ifconfig gives a section "lo", with inet addr ""08:33
mwaznycan anyone help with a problem where ubuntu freezes every time I try to log out or switch users?08:33

oxeimonit said "reconfiguration network... [OK]"08:34
=== Nightmare is now known as SecretLine
Gumbyoxeimon: so as I initially stated, network manager probably isnt running.  which of course means you have no network management and nm-applet can not connect to anything which is why it isnt working or possibly not even showing up08:35
WGGMksnorkel: it only effects you if you give out shell access, for example is someone can ssh into your machine.08:35

How can I talk syslinux into booting a kernel on external media (such as a usb storage device)?08:48

dgjonesnomic, i used that and didn't have a problem setting it up, my nfs shares mount from fstab, instead of using the hostname, i use the ip address of the machine and have set the mount points into /media09:19
Gumbyoxeimon: always a learning experience :)09:19
nomicright thanks dgjones ... btw how do you get a hostname for a machine instead of an ip address09:19
oxeimonnow I can finally start on my problem set that's due tomorrow. gahhhhh09:20
nomici think it is because i should be using fstab09:20
sweetsinseWerdna do you have a floppy though on that lappy09:20
oboy03what should i do if in my restricted drivers manger ATI card is present and not NVIDIA which is my video card09:20
nomopofomoOne last question. How do I choose which plug-in I want to decode movies in my browser if there are two installed? Should I just remove the Totem plug-in or will that cause dependency errors? I would rather use the VLC plug-in.09:21
dgjonesnomic, i'm not sure about getting the hostname, its something i need to have a look at myself at some point for situations when the ip address changes09:21
sweetsinsenomopofomo remove totem-mozilla09:21
nomicyes i gather the ip address may not be constant dgjones09:21
sweetsinsenomopofomo is emerald w3rking/09:22
nomopofomosweetsinse, installing it now :)09:22
dgjonesnomic, in theory on mine it should be, i use mac address filtering and each allowed mac address is linked to an internal ip address on the router, but for some reason my router settings have gotten confused and they've changed which is why i want to change to the hostname09:23
oboy03what should i do if in my restricted drivers manger ATI card is present and not NVIDIA which is my video card09:23
nomopofomooboy03, shit a brick.09:23
sweetsinseoboy03 is everything w3rking at the moment?09:23

sweetsinsepretty sure you just go to 'Import'09:31
badkittyoboy03: I see the system tells you its an nvidia card but it recommends an ati driver in the restricted manager?09:31
oboy03badkitty: yes09:31
nomopofomosweetsinse, not yet. I could export one from the theme manager but I'm going to try to import some first from the repositories.09:31
nomopofomoBut first, I need subversion.09:31
sweetsinsei dont know of any packages in the repos09:31
oboy03i just updated a while ago and i am surprise it recommends ATI, i had it working before with nvidia09:32
