RootyRootRootW00Dodsda / jeffl : Thanks! am looking00:05
pike_ahave_AFK: there are a bunch of ways. if youve already created the partitions you can just format em by doing a mkfs.ext3 /dev/sda4 or whatever00:05
Bodsdanp00:05
pike_ahave_AFK: basically you create partitions from the freespace then format those using mkfs.something to whavever format you want00:06
ahave_AFKty pike, i will search for mkfs.ntfs then00:06

bruenigHangukMiguk, check rhythmbox -h for usage info, a lot of players have such things but rhythmbox being gnome and having the gnome philosophy of "don't add that feature, it will make people's head explode", it might not00:24

HangukMigukor is it in apt?00:28
bruenigHangukMiguk, I don't know if ubuntu doesn't compile in aac support or something but there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to find a plethora of players which can use it seeing as most players just use one of the few codec backends which aac would be supported for00:29

_Lucretia_I have added "SYSFS{idVendor}=="04e8", SYSFS{idProduct}=="5083", SYMLINK+="libmtp-%k", MODE="660", GROUP="audio"" this to the /etc/udev/rules/libmtp.rules file, do I need to reboot for it to take effect or should a simple "sudo /etc/init.d/udev restart" work?00:50
_Lucretia_that line is for a Samsung YP-P2 player00:50
dabbillPelo, ls -l gives you permissions, but i dont remember how it breaks down00:50
PeloOmegaCenti,  put a dot before the folder name like /home/username/.wine00:50
dabbillPelo, -rwxr-xr-x  1 root   root      14766 2007-10-10 15:22 wine00:50
lealhello all00:51
kyle___Lucretia_, try latter, then if that fails, do former00:51
lealsomebody knows "one" howto that works about configuring radeon 9600 + compiz fusion on gutsy?00:51
OmegaCentiPelo: you can still list that folder on with ls -al, I am wondering if you can REALLY hide a folder.00:51
Pelodabbill, I think it  root , current user , others,   this is what I get  -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 4856 2008-01-25 20:00 wine00:51
_Lucretia_kyle__: tried a restart of udev, then mtp-detect - couldn't find anything, thing is, the p2 is charging at the moment, so don't really want to interrupt00:52
PeloOmegaCenti, you want encryption00:52
greencookieI've connected an external Hard Drive to my puter. how do I browse it?00:52
lealwhen i install the xserver-xgl, the desktop works in slow motion00:52
dabbillPelo, whitch is the same as what i got for it00:52
kyle__OmegaCenti, "really hide"?00:52
Pelogreencookie, mount it00:52
OmegaCentikyle__: like if someone looks for a folder, they can't even find it.00:52
Pelodabbill, very odd00:52
dabbillPelo, Owner root, Access read and right, group root, access read only, others access read only00:52
Pelodabbill,  I'm stumped00:52
Lionocan i allow 4 apps to run, some file sharings , a shutdown button on destkopand NONE else on clients.. i mean none.... no right clicks no kmenu. .. nothing. possible?00:52
Pelodabbill,  you need for owner root to havwe read write execute00:53
kyle__OmegaCenti, are you concerned about on the HD?00:53
OmegaCentikyle__: yes, a folder on the HD.00:53
kyle__OmegaCenti, er, sorry, rephrasing00:53
PeloLiono, yes , how  don'T quite know00:53

Pelotantric132, I don't know how you will go about changing it but , out of range usualy means that the horiz sync and/or vert rez values are not correct for your monitor,  I suggest you check the label at the back of your monitor for the correct settings  ( sometimes listed as v and h ) and change xorg.conf accordingly , the settings should be listed under   device monitor  as ranges ,  make sure the range reaches to your monitors capabilites,  what I am not sure a01:14
Pelobout is if nvidia restriected drivers use xorg , you'll have to test it01:14

NeutrinoMuonicolots and lots and lots of people01:16
tantric132Pelo, I'm not sure what xorg is. xorg.config i think? i heard I could change the resolution there, but your sayuing thats not the problem.01:16

kostkon_Lucretia_, I think since your device is recognized as a usb device by ubuntu it can be charged. i think that it's independent of the mtp problem01:49
PeloaO|DB, you'll get the hang of it eventualy, you only do one thing at once, if it helps you can exit the installer and go back to the deskop ,  you can partition your hdd from gparted in there and do the insetall after,   you can then skip the bit where you partiton and go straight to the part where you pick the partitons to instal on01:49
eck090says installer must be run as root01:50
aO|DBwell, it dosnt let me install on partitions01:50
eck090do i just put the "sudo" command?01:50
aO|DBit just picks this one hard drive i have01:50
nickrudRukus: you could try running the install on http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Gutsy_Installation_Guide , see if that will fix it. But simply running the ati driver install can often screw things up01:50

Dr_willisfrojnd,  it may be vfat,02:30
kostkonHellow, so it looks like you have the intel 810 chipset. ok02:30
gold44soldats: let me check, bu t i think the resoultion is wrong, my screen support 1024x and default probably bigger02:30
nickrudaO|DB: install gparted, I don't like the looks of the overlap of the ntfs partition with the other partitions. Not a good looking thing02:31
jake85hi, im new to ubuntu can anyone help - having issues with wifi (it looks installed )and i can see my AP but i cant connect to it, it just looks like it keeps connecting and nothing - ( using Broadcom wifi chipset)02:31
tantric132nickrud, okay. I have got it. Let me break down my entire HD for you. /dev/sda1(74.52GB) is ntfs. Used-20.70GB Free-53.82GB. Mountpoint for it is /media/disk-1 /dev/sda2(36.88GB) is ext3. Mountpoint /media/disk.  /dev/sda3(36GB) is ext3. Mountpoint is / . then I have the two swap spacve partitions. (extended and linux-swap)02:31
soldatsgold44: well what happened, was this the first time. did you edit something.02:31
aO|DB-DXnickrud, use this name to talk to, easier to read on this laptop02:31
nickrudDr_willis: if you have a sec, could you look at http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/55821/ , I don't like the looks of the start blocks02:31
kostkonHellow, it's a little old so I don't know if 3d is supported by the intel driver for 81002:31
nickrudaO|DB: ok02:31
nickrudaO|DB-DX: ok that is02:32
nomopofomoI'm having problems with links to folders containing MP3 files on an NTFS partition.02:32
frojndDr_willis, I made a wrong dev, it was dev1 and not dev202:32
eck090how do i test my D3D?02:32
nickrudtantric132: a sec02:32
frojndis this bad, I mount it under root, and now set as chmod -R 777 and it's making huge scan..02:32
aO|DB-DXnickrud, while im installing what messanger service would you reccomend?02:32
gold44soldats: just installed it on dual boot. monitor says "out of range", it's not a message from the console. it's a message from  my LCD screen itself.02:32
ussereck090: D#D?02:33
Dr_willisnickrud,  ive seen that happen  at times if you partition the disks oddly.02:33
eck090direct 3d02:33
magnumpihey what package do i need to install to get compiz-fusion to work on a 1400x ati card?"02:33
ussereck090: ehm, do you have wine installed?02:33
ussereck090: theres no D3D on linux per se02:33
gold44soldats: oh no. unable to boot into ubuntu. i have in intitial ram disk prompt02:33
Dr_willisfrojnd,  you DONT normally chmod mountpoints that way.. and you definiatly dont do it for NTFS/Vfat filesystems02:33
Hellowkostkon: where can i find a system wide accelerator like Direct X for Windows?02:33
eck090well im using a linux version of eve-online02:34
nickrudtantric132: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/55822/ , add that to the very end of /boot/grub/menu.lst02:34
eck090but im getting tons of graphic lagg02:34
frojndDr_willis, I hope I didn't something screw :S02:34
usserHellow: its included with video card driver02:34
usserHellow: its called opengl02:34
GrueliusI need some help withchunksizes. Raid5 array with 4x500gb disks,files ~200mb+ in general. will have a lvm withext3. What chunksize should i set02:34
nickrudaO|DB-DX: pidgin I guess. That's what most people seem to use02:34
kostkonHellow, for linux you can say it's opegl. but if you don't have 3d support for your card you can't do many things, actually02:34
ussereck090: it uses opengl02:34
soldatsgold44: i know. it usually means wrong resolution or bad refresh rates. if you can do ctrl+alt+f2 and get a terminal you can try "sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg" and it should rebuild it to the correct settings. otherwise you may be able to get a terminal with recovery mode boot02:34
eck090ok, im  not sure why im getting lagg then02:34
bortI bought a power supply for my old computer (500Watts), but the connector for the mb has twelve pins and the entry of the mb has only 10. I managed to stick the twelve pin connector to the entry but now I'm wondering if my mb will burn or something.02:34
kostkonHellow, I don't know if the intel driver supports 3d for your card02:34
bortany ideas?=02:34
aO|DB-DXnickrud, where did gparted go?02:34
nickrudaO|DB-DX: it seems you're installed ok, try booting your windows02:34
eck090can i run a test on my card thru terminal02:34
nickrudaO|DB: you need to install it02:35
soldatsgold44: it happens when booting linux right02:35
aO|DB-DXi did02:35
nickrudaO|DB: ok, good. You seem good to go. Your drive seems formatted oddly to me, but it appears it's working ok02:35
tantric132nickrud, how do I access(and what file) is it?02:35
rodserling_Ok, I just put in my new sata drive, formated and partitioned the whole drive. When I boot it up, it goes blank, takes around 5 minutes and gives me the log in screen on ubuntu, Why does it go blank for 5minutes in the beginning?02:35
tantric132that i paste that to02:35
aO|DBtry booting windows xp?02:36
nomopofomoWhy can't I delete these folder links?! It's driving me crazy.02:36
nickrudtantric132:    gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst02:36
nickrudaO|DB: yes02:36
rodserling_Should I mess with the bios?02:36
tantric132nickrud, thanks bud!02:36
eck090ok im retarted....... my 3d-acceleration is turned off02:36
ussereck090: what video card do u have?02:37
gold44soldats: yes during boot time, no splash screen. but bigger right problem now.  some sort of tty device error02:37
aO|DBnickrud, ok im in windows02:37
nickrud!brokenusplash | rodserling_ (this often fixes blank boot screens)02:37
uboturodserling_ (this often fixes blank boot screens): Supported screen resolutions are sometimes detected incorrectly, causing the splash screen to not appear and slowing down boot. Edit /etc/usplash.conf and change "xres" and "yres" to a resolution that your graphics system certainly supports, then run « sudo update-usplash-theme usplash-theme-ubuntu »02:37
nickrudaO|DB: good. Just wanted to be sure it was working02:37
rodserling_Ok, thanks nickrud!02:37
tantric132nickrud, so add this text behind ### END DEBIAN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST?02:37

gold44soldats: i have all in one budget motherboard combo. so lots of hardware are very rare02:38
ussereck090: did u enable restricted driver in ubuntu's driver manager?02:38

RoxanneEDMgood day guys, can someone help me install flash? i would love it !02:39
bluefoxok, i can't seem to get gnome to use a the resolution i know my monitor is capable of handling, it only wants to let me use 800X600 and it can do 1600x140002:40

eck090ill know in a minute lol02:40
jack-desktopis there anyway to rotate my desktop screen 90 or 180 degrees in ubuntu? it's really easy in windows... ;p02:40

ubotuTo install Flash see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Flash (for !Dapper and !Edgy, a recent version is available in !backports) - See also !Restricted and !Gnash02:40
usserfrojnd: do something like this just change /dev/hda1 to name of your partition and /mountpoint too  echo "/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs-3g 0 0" >> /etc/fstab02:40
aO|DBHey guys, where does Gparted go when it is installed?02:41
soldatsaO|DB: type gparted in a terminal02:42
eck090w00t fixed02:42
usserfrojnd: then do sudo chown -R username:username /mountpoint02:42
Dr_willisjack-desktop,  i recall some extra tool (xrand?) that could do that.. or some xorg.conf optiuons..  But ive never tried them out. and it may depend onyour video card.02:42
RoxanneEDMhey guys i just installed [sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree].. now it says that i have the latest version, but when i browse to some vids on facebook, it tells me i need a newer version... any ideas?02:42
kostkonHellow, there is the 810 xorg driver at the repositories. maybe by using this driver you'll get 3d02:43
soldatsRoxanneEDM: firefox02:43
gold44soldats: hm.. recovery mode is stuck or maybe taking a long time. anyway. i will try slackware and see if i get more luck. i think the main thing is the drivers for my budget motherboard02:43
mikecan someone help me figure out how to edit the smb.conf file02:43
tantric132nickrud, it now says windows on the list, but when I try to load it I get: Error 22: no such partition02:43

sxealexanyone know what options i need to open proms on a remote computer that use the x display... i don t need to see the output just launch them02:47
macsenello?02:47
usserfrojnd: now do sudo mount /dev/sda102:47
sxealexsorry programs*02:47
usserfrojnd: it should mount the partition02:47
soldatstechqbert: unless it logs it somewhere i doubt it02:47
Dr_willissxealex,   You would need to set up 'xhost' to allow the remote user access to the X display, and then just export the display variable, and run them02:47
usserfrojnd: after that do sudo chown -R yourname:yourname /home/me/Windows02:48
sxealexexport it into the computer im sshing from02:48
badkittyCool finally got vmware to install correctly.. Now just need a decent appliance to boot properly02:48
sxealex?02:48
RoxanneEDMwhat is easiest to install, a rpm file or tar.gz02:48
Dr_willissxealex,  on the remote you need to some how run 'xhost +localhost' or similer.  (this is a potential security hole)02:48
PriceChild!rpm | RoxanneEDM02:48
ubotuRoxanneEDM: RPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous)02:48
Dr_willissxealex,  then export the DISPLAY variable properly, then just run the app. it should then appear on the remote box.02:48
sxealexohh,,, no sorry thats not what i mean02:49
nosajcan any one tell me how manny argrage users for ubuntu and same for windows?02:49
sxealexthe program is on the remote computer02:49
nosajavrage02:49
soldatsRoxanneEDM: use the tar.gz from the adobe site. and follow the directions for flash install02:49
=== Sapote_ is now known as Sapote
sxealexbut when i run it02:49
sxealexit says it cant find the x display02:49
Dr_willissxealex,  thats what the exporting the DISPLAY is all about02:49
eck090ill take that as a no02:50
Dr_willisexport DISPLAY=localhost:0.0   or similer02:50
Dr_willisthen run the app02:50
usserfrojnd: so hows it going?02:50
Dr_willissxealex,  IF you had ran xhost +localhost that is..02:50
sxealexok ill give that a whirl02:50
sxealexthis wont work in regular ssh?02:50
ussersxealex: in ssh just use -X flag02:51
Dr_willisusser,  he wants it to appear remotely also.02:51
sxealexi thought x flag would show it on my computer02:51
ussersxealex: ie ssh -X -C username@remotepc02:51
sxealexno02:51
ussersxealex: oh my bad sorry02:51
Dr_willisor so he said.02:51
sxealexi dont need it on my computer02:51
Dr_willis:)02:51
sxealexi do this sshing into my mac all the time02:51
ussersxealex: just run it like that i believe DISPLAY=:0 && progname02:52
frojndusser, when I try to do: chown -R joze:site /home/joze/Windows/  it allways says that it's not valid name02:52
Dr_willissxealex,  the 'critical part' is the X security stuff, thats handled by xhost +.02:52
ussersxealex: i think that would work02:52
usserfrojnd: is it there?02:52
sxealexso DISPLAY=:0 ./program02:52
gold44soldats: nope. failed. tty error can't access control. i still get initial ram disk prompt. i'll give slackware a try later this week =(02:52

joey_what is the easiest way for me to create a ntfs partition on my hd?03:37
illriginalsweet... thanks flannel03:37
Jack_SparrowArrPirate: Usually that is the result of the wrong v/h refresh settings not just the sync 75 or whatever that most people know about.  Look in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf then post it in the pasatebin, not in the channel.03:38
wease|hammer89, apparently something you have installed doesnt agree with gnome03:38
Hammer89weasel: one other thing... would that be what's responsible for compiz not initiating? (if I try logging in and out enough times compiz initiates properly... eventually... and when it does everything is stable)03:38
stroyanArrPirate: I would suspect you need to change a  HorizSync  setting in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf.  To high of a refresh rate could cause your monitor's distress.03:38

Flannelillriginal: Kompozer was only added to the repos for Gutsy (and backported for Feisty), sicne its relatively new.  That's why you have to do a little bit extra (but not too much)03:41

ScuniziShrugz, Evolution comes with ubuntu and works well. korganizer is another then you could also install zDesktop from zimbra..04:04

ScuniziShrugz, are you looking for specific features?04:05
tantric132nekostar, I've been working on this for awhile now and can't seem to get it to work. I opened /boot/grub/menu.lst and adding the Windows thing at the very bottom and when I reboot and press Windows on the GRUB menu I get a Error 22: No such partition04:06

nekostarlike linux?04:07
Hammer89weasel: back... still no luck with compiz running... desktop loaded faster this time though (could just be chance)04:07
ScuniziShrugz, so what you're saying is you want to get to your pop email via your personal site.. right?04:07
wease|hammer89, seems to me that compiz is draggin you down for reasons i cant help04:08
tantric132nekostar, can yuou explain04:08
Scunizi!mail > Scunizi04:08
ShrugzScunizi yes that's exactly what i am saying04:08
wease|hammer89, id suggest uninstalling compiz and performing a clean reboot to see how it goes without compiz04:09
Hammer89wease|: possibly... there seem to be deeper problems though... just from what I can see (stuff not initializing properly, etc...)04:09
nekostartantric132 i mean can you not boot into any operating systems or just windows you cannot get to04:09
nekostarand is it on the same physical hdd04:09
bruenigwease|, reboot? have you confused this with the ##windows channel?04:09
Hammer89bruenig: lol04:09
nekostarbruenig lol.... it is called for now and then tho :P04:09
jpetermanWhy does it seem that every other Linux kernal has a CPU-leak for Netowrk manager?04:09
astro76aO|DB: it's hard to tell you what to do without understanding your physical setup04:09
tantric132nekostar, yeah. i can boot into the three ubuntu options, just not windows. at first, Windows wasn't even on the list(well it was when I first formatted, but disapeared) so I added a line at the end of menu.lst04:09
laphello ?04:10
wease|bruenig, no, i simply call a reboot in linux as a ctrl-backspace04:10
lapsomeone to help me PLS ?04:10
bruenigjpeterman, linux kernel and network manager? do you know what you are talking about04:10
ScuniziShrugz, sounds like that would be a server related program to access pop.  Of course you'd have to do something on the web page to pipe access via html.. You might try asking in #ubuntu-server.04:10
lapdual-screen with nvidia 7600 GS04:10
bruenigrestarting x is not a reboot nor anything even related to it04:10
nekostartantric132 ok boot into the ubuntu then04:10
lapwithout nvidia-settings04:10
wease|bruenig, it is close enough for me04:10
jpetermanbruenig not sure. all i know is every few times i update linux kernels network manager all of a sudden starts consuming 98% of CPU after being up for about 20minutes04:10
wease|i rarely reboot my computer04:10
bruenigthat's like saying restarting firefox is rebooting04:10
wease|thats as close as i get04:10
nekostarlap you want dual mons without nvidia driver?04:11
nekostarlol04:11
MrPiracy!MPlayer04:11
lapnekostar: no..04:11
tantric132nekostar, im in ubuntu right now04:11
jpetermanbruenig it just started 5minutes after adding the new kernel today, didnt have it happen for the last few months04:11
bruenigjpeterman, that cannot have anything to do with the kernel, but I would recommend just not using it04:11
lapnekostar: i want dualscreen with nvidia-glx-new installed.04:11
wease|bruenig, you would be right04:11
nekostartantric132 ok in terminal do: sudo fdisk -l04:11
Trogdor3634Gutsy question: How would I edit a configuration file in the usr/share folder? Konqueror-superuser won't let me modify the file, nor will text editors04:11

lapand I cannot install nvidia-settings04:11
bruenigjpeterman, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post_hoc_ergo_propter_hoc04:11
Hammer89wease|: would compiz really have any effect on elements of the desktop not drawing properly?04:11
wease|so my way of a "reboot" is different04:11
ShrugzScunizi if that's the case then there's no need for me to ask in that channel i think i already know the problem you just opened my eyes is all its my box so i can fix it from there :) thank you for your input04:11

ShrugzScunizi wow i am a newbie to ubuntu a friend of mine named chris introduced me to it.04:12
Trogdor3634Gutsy question: How would I edit a configuration file in the usr/share folder? Konqueror-superuser won't let me modify the file, nor will text editors.04:13
wease|hammer89, IMO yes04:13
bruenigoh chris introduced you04:13
FlannelShrugz: Or you want to connect to your ISPs (whatever) POP and SMTP servers with an email client?04:13
ShrugzNo Flannel i want to connect to my box a box i purchased from a friend04:13
SHMOok well it's been atleast 24 hours in this chat room trying to solve my problem, but i guess when it comes to support, you get what you pay for, so thanks for the help (or lack there-of)04:13
Hammer89weasel: okay... I'll try totally disabling compiz then04:13
ScuniziShrugz, It's fun stuff.. welcome04:13
mjw-Trogdor3634 sudo nano /usr/share/whatever04:13
nekostarHammer89 if no joi here then try #compiz-fusion for related problems ^^04:13
tantric132nekostar, http://pastebin.com/m442cd0d904:13
FlannelShrugz: Right.  So, you want a central mail repository, that grab sstuff from various POP sources04:13
nekostartantric132 bingo04:14
nekostarthat first one sda1 is your windows04:14
ShrugzBruenig you might now know the chris im speaking of but maybe you do or where you just being a smart allic lol04:14
Hammer89weasel: brb04:14
nekostarnow post your /boot/grub/menu.lst for me tantric13204:14

ShrugzFlannel like windows outlook but better04:14
tantric132nekostar, http://pastebin.com/m60b1e9d904:15
Trogdor3634mjw-... any way to do it in GUI?04:15
Hammer89weasel: compiz is disabled... things are still drawing wrong04:15
FlannelShrugz: Outlook is just a mail client, if I have all my mail on outlook on box A, can I view that mail on box B?04:15
Hammer89weasel: logged in faster, though04:15
ShrugzFlannel yes that's what im saying that's what i need04:15
mjw-Trogdor3634 I know gksu is used with graphical programs in gnome, don't know the one for kde off the top of my head04:15
talciteblah someone needs to rewrite flash04:15

MrPiracyis it possible to install IE on ubuntu?04:16
tantric132nekostar, I think I just go an idea bud. Can you do me a favor? Look at the bottom of what I sent you. See where it says second drive?04:16
nekostartantric132 do you have multiple hard drives?04:16
compwiz18!ie4linux | MrPiracy04:16
zelrikriandolol MrPiracy who would do that04:16
ScuniziShrugz, Flannel, maybe zimbra ?04:16
ShrugzFlannel I Want a email client to retreive my email from my box's email setting's directly onto my computer04:16
mjw-Trogdor3634 then use gksu gedit /usr/share/whatever04:16
juicE_wow... why would one want IE on Linux04:16
juicE_:D04:16
FlannelMrPiracy: through wine, yes.  check out "ies4linux"04:16

mjw-!gksu | Trogdor363404:17
nekostarha04:17
wease|hammer89, somebody else may chime in to help but i would consider reinstalling gnome 2.20.104:17
nekostarthats probably it04:17
Starnestommyfor testing sites for IE compatability?04:17
tantric132nekostar, if I replaced second drive with /dev/sda204:17
FlannelShrugz: right, thats just a regular mail client.  Evolution will work fine for you.04:17
compwiz18for sites that don't worok in FF?04:17
MrPiracyzelrikriando: well ... there are some pages that can only be seen from IE04:17
ShrugzScunizi zimbra? ill look into that04:17
MrPiracy!ie4linux04:17
nekostarjust make it the same as the ubuntu entryies04:17
juicE_that was a rhetorical question (A)04:17
Hammer89wease|: I'm nearly desperate enough to try it04:17
MrPiracy!ies4linux04:17
FlannelMrPiracy: you'll need to google, we dont have a factoid04:17
zelrikriandoMrPiracy: installing IE will make things worse04:17
nekostarhm actually04:17
nekostarhey04:17
compwiz18zelrikriando: how would it make it worse?04:17
nekostaryeah04:17
ShrugzFlannel omg i just finished telling Scunizi that it does not work for me Evolution that iis04:18
ScuniziShrugz, zimbra is now owned by Yahoo but it's opensource.  there's a networked server addition and desktop accessable via http from any browser.04:18
wease|hammer89, its not a big thing to reinstall04:18
nekostarchange it to hdd (1,0)04:18
zelrikriandocompwiz18: by using IE you play M$'s game04:18
wassahi newb question.. I installed RPM in gutsy using sudo apt rpm.. i am trying to install the vmware player.rpm ... I have no idea how to install this thing though.. do i have to do it through the terminal??04:18
wease|it just seems there are corrupt areas therein04:18
Hammer89wease|: except the theming on my laptop has hours of work behind it :P04:18
ShrugzScunizi Barfs At Anything owned by yahoo sorry that's just me04:18
compwiz18zelrikriando: fair enough, but if you've gotta access a site, then you've gotta access the site... that's the only way04:18
FlannelShrugz: What about it doesn't work for you?  "It doesn't work" doesn't tell us a whole lot about whats going wrong04:18
astro76!alien | wassa04:18
zelrikriandocompwiz18: I dont want to access corrupted sites04:18
ScuniziShrugz, they just bought it in the last couple of months. It's a very good app.04:19
wassa!alien04:19
astro76wassa: you use alien to convert rpms but it's highly *not* recommended04:19
compwiz18zelrikriando: then don't install IE :)04:19
zelrikriandoI dont04:19
zelrikriando:)04:19
ShrugzFlannel i configured it correctly Evolution but it did not connect maybe its my network maybe its my box i have no clue at this point in time04:19
wassaastro76 why can't i just install it in some normal method?04:19
wease|hammer89, if its that big a deal then you may want to wait for somebody who can help solve it from a command line as i cannot at this point.04:20
ShrugzScunizi i dont think there going to be buying anything for awhile have you by any chance looked at the news on Yahoo lately04:20
FlannelShrugz: alright, well, we'll be happy to help you diagnose it.  If you're looking for non-evolution alternatives, there are plenty.  One that comes to mind is Thunderbird04:20
ubotuwassa: RPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous)04:20
Hammer89weasel: okay... not sure how long I can wait though... it's pretty much unusable04:20
wassais there no way to install this without installing some other application?? why does everything with this build have to be so friggin challenging?04:20
G_Bensoni have several parts of a rar archive (part1.rar, part2.rar, etc.) how do i extract the content so that it is joined back together? (ubuntu 7.10)04:20
ScuniziShrugz, no.. they spent 10' of millions on zimbra04:20
wassahmmm so I can't install the vmware player then?04:20
ushimitsudokiG_Benson: archive manager should do that for you automatically04:20
ShrugzFlannel Okay ill look into thunderbird sounds like something created for mysql lol04:21
Flannelwassa: sure, get a vmware deb, and you wont need to use alien04:21
stroyanwassa: Using alien lets you install and remove a package with apt tools like the rest of the system.  With rpm you would install with   rpm -i vmware.rpm04:21
wease|im off to bed04:21
wease|night folks04:21
Hammer89weasel: here's one possibility (maybe)... I used to have KDE installed as well as gnome... I've since removed KDE (I think I still have enlightenment installed, though)... is it possible that some configuration file from KDE is messing me up?04:21
ushimitsudokiScunizi: and zimbra's future is in serious doubt because of MS trying to buyout Yahoo. Read the zimbra forums04:21
wassawhat is vmware deb?04:21
ShrugzScunizi Yahoo is in the middle of negotiateing with microsoft microsoft wants to buy out Yahoo for some where's around 46 Billion Dollors04:21
Trogdor3634mje- thanks, I opened gedit via gksu and edited the file from there. Does GKSU show up in the default ubuntu menubar?04:22
Scuniziushimitsudoki, Shrugz i know.. time will tell what will actually happen.04:22
zelrikriandothat will not save microsoft from copalsing04:22
mjw-Trogdor3634 you could make a launcher for gksu gedit if that's what you're getting at04:22
ShrugzScunizi well i will half to talk with a admin friend of mine who work's for yahoo he will half to tell me about it on what's going on04:22
wease|hammer89, no. they normally run separately from my understanding. KDE is KDE, Gnome is Gnome, XFCE is XFCE, etc etc04:22
Trogdor3634I know I can, I'm asking if it's already on there and I missed it04:22

ScuniziShrugz, if it's in dought grab it soon.04:23
FlannelTrogdor3634: thats incorrect04:23
astro76wassa: I'm really not aware of the best way to install vmware on Ubuntu currently, but you would be better off with their .tar package rather than .rpm04:23
astro76that is for certain04:23
Trogdor3634Flannel: as in "Partition Editor" rather than GParted04:23

Scurubuz:)04:26
ushimitsudokiG_Benson: archive manager will support automatically re-joining the .rar archives ... for example, if you click on the .rar one, then all the .r00-r99 and so forth will be included when the file is extracted. Check what you get when just dbl-clicking one one of the .rar files04:26
CVD-PRprobando04:27
ushimitsudokiiratik: this is because compiz has turned off "window decorations" probably04:27
Trogdor3634From the manual: gksu is a frontend to su and gksudo is a frontend to sudo. Their primary purpose is to run graphical commands that need root without the need to run an X terminal emulator and using su directly04:27
nortyHow do i use ls to only list the files and not directories?04:27
stroyanKlrSpz: I put each per host config file in /var/lib/backuppc/pc/hostname/config.pl04:27
CVD-PR ya misno regreso restarting04:27
iratikushimitsudoki: how might I address this issue?04:27
Trogdor3634Hence, if the given instructions are "Open up an X terminal emulator and type in gksu..."04:28
Trogdor3634doesn't make much sense04:28
ushimitsudokiiratik: I do it my using the compiz settings manager to make sure window decorations are enabled. I don't know a better solution (but I wish I did!)04:28
KlrSpzstroyan: yeah, but how do i tell it to connect to each individual one?04:28
Trogdor3634any idea why it isn't on the default menu?04:28
KlrSpzstroyan: it seems like they all share a common connection schema04:28
iratikushimitsudoki: how do i open the compiz settings manager?04:28
ushimitsudokiiratik: it should be under System > Preferences > Advanced Desktop Effect Settings (if you have the compiz settings package installed - I don't think it is installed by default)04:30
nortyCan someone help me? I want to list only the files not directories , how can I do that using ls.. or some other command??04:30
stroyanKlrSpz: You can override the setting of variables like  $Conf{XferMethod} in each hosts config file.04:31

KlrSpzstroyan: ahhhh.. i just found it... nm04:33
stroyanKlrSpz: As far as I can tell some of the host setup must be done by editing config files as text.  There is documentation on it in the left margin of the GUI.04:33
xeomTrogdor i know but that lag contiues and i need to use repeat keys its a problem with the timing of the keyboard04:33
iratikushimitsudoki: where do you configure window decorations in compizconfig settings manager?04:34
Trogdor3634xeom: On that configuration window ("Keyboard Preferences"), there should be an option for Repeat Keys Delay, and you should set it to Long04:34

cafuegoxinx: can you paste the output of 'sudo fdisk -l' to a pastebin?05:11
xinxI install ubuntu on a partition that I made05:11
NigelS_SASQUATCH: if you can rule out a hardware problem, cable problem etc then it should just be a matter of configuring the software - but plainly something is up since obtaining a DHCP lease is automated and should def work out of the box05:11
cafuegoxinx: If you need help, you need to help us help you.05:11

quest23just checking05:17
xinxand I did it05:17
gamerdudestarnestommy: yeah i did, it's completely dead there heh05:17
tantric132nickrud, should it be (hd1,1)? Becuase the Ubuntu is (hd1,2) in menu.lst and it is on the same hard drive and is one partition behind the ntfs(xp)05:17
nickrudtantric132: add the lines   map (hd0) (hd1)   <newline>   map (hd1)(hd0)  <newline>  between the title and root lines in your windows stanza. You have to fool windows into thinking it's running from the first drive05:17
cafuegothiemster: Yes-ish, but I have no experience with them.05:17
thiemsterxinx: you could search google for finding tools to recover deleted partions, but they may not work very well05:18
quest23yeh xinx..there is ways to get those file...unfortunatley i dont know how..dont stress out yet05:18
gamerdudei figured with over 1k peeps here someone would be familiar with xchat scripts haha05:18

badkittyxinx: is the system just not booting it, not finding the parition or what05:18
thiemsterxinx: when you installed linux, did you manually or automatically partition it?05:19
cafuegoxinx: linux will have not overwritten ALL data, only some parts. So you may be lucky and able to recovery a fair bit.05:19
tantric132nickrud, http://pastebin.com/d75462d3 anything you see out of the norm?05:19
cafuegobadkitty: From what I can tell, there is no Windows partition.05:19

cometin#biblioteca05:20
tantric132nickrud, also look at the on /dev/sda....should it be sda1?05:20
cafuegoxsnoopyx: Mount the hd and the windows share, then copy.05:20
quest23i should have prompt you to choose auto or manual partition05:20
thiemsterxsnoopyx: when i use ubuntu live cd, it always has the main hard drive as a drive listed on it05:20
badkittyxinx: Yeah but did you install only to the partition you made for it or did you select guided use entire disk?05:20
thiemsterxsnoopyx: it's already mounted05:20
xinxto share05:21
=== NastyAccident2 is now known as NastyAccident
xsnoopyxsorry, the hd will mount, but the share will not mount!05:21

thiemsterxnoopyx: sorry, i don't know too much about windows shares. good luck05:21

tantric132duh! i'm an idiot. ok nickrud i'm going to try it. if I don't return with in 5 mins, SUCCESS! if I do, then you know...haha05:21
thiemsterxinx: ooh, bad choice05:21
NigelS_xinx: which would be where you windows partition was presumably?05:22
xinxand I noticed that but I didnt know what to choose05:22
quest23yeh...you should have did a manual....and used up free space...05:22
xinxomg05:22
nickrudtantric132: don't leave me hanging ;)05:22
quest23you probly wrote over your windows os05:22
badkittyxinx: Im guessing you installed over your windows partition05:22
tantric132nickrud, thanks for the help! ill be back regardless because I need to ask you of one more simple thing =D05:22
NigelS_xinx: if you don't understand something, it's a bad idea to choose to do it - especially if you're worried about losing data05:22
xinxbut it didnt say anything about format the drive05:22
badkittyxinx in that case, your lucky that windows is so bloated, you may be able to recover some of your files05:22
xinxomg05:22
badkittyxinx: You should have backed the data up on your shiny new drive before you went ahead with the install05:23
quest23yup05:23
badkittyxinx: I suggest getting a recovery disk somewhere very soon05:23
xinxwell I tried to have ubuntu because of a friend told me is a good OS and to try it also I wanted to learn more about linux05:23
thiemsterxinx: you should've used a live cd05:23
NigelS_xinx: if you tear up the partition table it will kind of have the effect of losing it even if it doesn't mention the word format05:23
badkittyxinx: And do not install anything else until you get your files recovered as much as you can05:23
xinxbadkitty recovery disk ?05:24
badkittyxinx: It is a great OS, I finally got rid of my dual boot system, and soley use ubuntu now05:24
wassahey.. im trying to follow some instructions.. i get this error You do not have enough space in '/dev/shm' for the 384 MB of QEMU virtual RAM.05:24
wassaTo have more space available provided you have enough RAM and swap, do as root:05:24
wassaumount /dev/shm05:24
wassacan someone explain what it means05:25
xinxI can stay on ubuntu as long I can get those files05:25
xinxare contacts and important data05:25
xinxlike office files05:25
badkittyxinx: Yah you should look into some programs that can do recovery.. your files may not be erased, but the 'pointers' to them are missing.Recovery software digs beyond the pointers and extracts the raw files and lets you recover them05:25
NigelS_we feel for you but it doesn't look good...there are tools for data recovery but there's a danger it was already overwritten by the install05:25
thiemsterxinx: try http://www.rescubuntu.info/node/105:25
xinxexcel word etc,..05:25
xinxok05:26
xinxthank you ill try that website05:26

tanubis_mrb88 it lets you play with how you're connecting that device.  if you just hit ifconfig eth0, for example, it shows you the settings you're using05:31
BagelMasterYea, that's why you have to go in and do the drivers yourself05:31
badkittygamerdude: haha that is a pretty wide range of options05:31
Madpilotsoldats, not completely. Lexmark's Linux support is pretty bad, though05:31

mrb88Tanubis - it is not functioning and there's the exclamation point next to the network icon.05:42
xinxbadkitty http://img521.imageshack.us/img521/4149/screenshotad6.png05:42
soldatsbadkitty: tor is pretty good05:42
mrb88NigelS_ - looking for it, what would I need to change?05:42
Tanubismrb88 is it a wireless device?05:43
mrb88It's a network device that links my virtual ubuntu pc to my host pc05:43
johnhello, I just did a system update with the software update tool and when I rebooted it seems like X.org failed to boot properly and I am stuck in low graphics mode. Where can I begin to troubleshoot05:43
mrb88Outside network doesn't even matter at the point of this driver, Tanubis05:43
nickrudtantric132: get out your XP disk, and try to boot windows with that.05:43
Xabrielstarnestommy, ok, done. Should I reboot an try to update?05:43
badkittysoldats: Is that what tor is used for??05:43
NigelS_mrb88: ah, I thought you were talking about physical hw, not sure its the same thing then - the description of that file is in the udev manpage or you can follow the existing format05:44
soldatsbadkitty: or privoxy but if you use tor you should use it with privoxy anyways tor is just an onion router relay and privoxy is the proxy which tor uses05:44
Tanubismrb88 Ok, I just wasn't sure as I thought the same as NigelS_05:44
NigelS_mrb88: that is to say use the MAC addr and give it a name05:44
johnwhat is the dpkg-reconfigure command for X server?05:44
Xabrielwhat exactly is a tor?05:44
mrb88NigelS_ and Tanubis - the module name in the kernel is vmxnet. Not sure how to find its mac address and reset eth0.05:44
badkittysoldats: mmm onions.. I can only imagine what that means lol...05:44
astro76!xconfig | john05:44
ubotujohn: To reconfigure your X server, open a console and type « sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg » - To configure only the driver and resolution, type « sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg -phigh » - See also !FixRes05:44
soldatsXabriel: an onion router relay05:44
mrb88NigelS_ and Tanubis - how do I find out what module it's currently using?05:44
soldatslol05:45
NigelS_mrb88: why does that matter?05:45
johnthanks astro7605:45
xinxhey can someone help me to install that program please ?05:45
mrb88NigelS_ Because it's not working?05:45
ouellettesrdoes anyone know of a food terminal besides xterm or terminal the one that comes with gnome?05:45
badkittysoldats: I am seeing a tutorial on how to install them.. is there extra configurations I need to do with all my clients that access the network?05:45
NigelS_mrb88: what's running your vitual software? sounds like it could be an issue with that05:45
ouellettesrlol good*05:45
Xabrielsoldats, so basically when I use something like torpark, I'm just routing my self through one or more  servers?05:45
soldatsouellettesr: you might have Eterm but im not sure05:46
NigelS_mrb88: from your description I thought you had a problem with physical hw not having the desired name05:46
mrb88NigelS_ - It's VMware Workstation 605:46
stroyanouellettesr: So you don't want bananaterm then?05:46
soldatsbadkitty: theres pretty good documentation on the TOR site as well as the privoxy site. also they come with a README thats really good for that05:46
Xabrielsoldats, I mean, is it basically the same thing as using a proxy?05:46
NigelS_Xabriel: tor is an anonymising network designed to obfuscate the origins of a request by sending it through multiple encrypted "nodes"05:46
ouellettesrstroyan, no i dont like bananas05:47
ouellettesr:P05:47
Blue_Sassleyhow can I tell if a deamon I installed is running?05:47
Xabrielso, sort of like going through a proxy, but much more layered and secure05:47
NigelS_mrb88: check the help for VMWare 6 I guess - certainly what i've told you is the way to assign a network interface name to a particular card05:47
mrb88NigelS_ - it's not showing up as a network device when I mouse over the network icon, and yet eth0 definitely exists. It's not "up" though05:47
dori I'm trying to test the new beta alongside 2.0.0.12 on ubuntu feisty, but the old version starts instead, is there something I need to do?05:47
soldatsXabriel: tor basically connects you through multiple servers worldwide and when your browser or app reaches the destination it reaches it from the exit node on a tor server05:47
Tanubismrb88 not sure why you're looking for it, but If you use ifconfig eth0 ,  the MAC address of the device should show up has HWaddr on the first line05:48
scragarhow can I tell what program keeps accessing my hard drive? about once every 2 hours I get a huge amount of access for about 10 secs...05:48
doriI'm running /opt/firefox3b3/firefox by the way, not the old executable05:48
Xabrielsoldats, cool05:48
stroyanBlue_Sassley: You could use ps or pgrep to look for the daemon.05:48
NigelS_Xabriel: not really like a proxy no - a proxy doesn't really anonymise any traffic it just gives you an alternative presence, whereas tor completely removes traces of the origins of a request which will just seem to come from an exit node05:49
tantric132nickrud, thanks for the help. I know what I'm going to do!05:49

ouellettesrhow can i get the output of a command into a txt file, normally i would do "command > out.txt" but i have to kill the process cause it never ends05:49
tantric132nickrud, I'm going to reinstall everything(for the third and final time). http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=46003&highlight=dual+boot+sata05:50
badkittysoldats: I guess I was justing asking the basic question.. I wanted an overall feel for how it works explained in a way I can understand easily ... Is it something i can connect to or not connect to if I want... and of course it wouldn't any impact on local LAN settings right? If I was running say a home web server.. would this need to be turned off?05:50
soldatsouellettesr: do man cat in a terminal05:50
NigelS_mrb88: what's the hardware? should it work in vmware? if so then it ought have loaded the module for it (see lsmod for a list of running modules) - then ifconfig can configure an interface, ifconfig <name> <ip addr> assigns an ip addr05:50
ouellettesrsoldats im not using cat though05:50
tantric132nickrud, but before I do this, I need to print these instructions...except, my printer won't print. it says under printers that its there bbut I don't guess the driver is installed. how do I get the drivers? Its a dell printer/scanner05:50
Xabrielstarnestommy: code executed without any errors popping up, but I still can't get the updates05:50
mrb88NigelS_ It was working pre-Ubuntu update. The hardware itself is just wired ethernet. The network will show up if I'm connected to the internet or not, the driver is just my connection between the host pc and the virtual PC. It definitely has works.05:50
soldatsbadkitty: it depends on how you set it up. for browsing there is a firefox plugin to quicky turn it on or off with the click of a button05:51
sxealexis there away to predeclare a password in a sudo command?05:51
mrb88NigelS_ - it's running my model.05:51
sxealexi.e.  sudo gedit : password05:51
stroyanouellettesr: The 'script' command is amusing.  It starts a shell or command an logs all tty output into a file.  Just don't cat that file while recording to it.05:51
badkittysoldats: Sweet, so I could have outgoing traffic anonymously and incomming still working with my public IP?05:52
nickrudtantric132: I notice that the map commands are different in comment 2 of that page. Try that first05:52
sxealexanyone?05:52
mrb88NigelS_ - it has my model and 17536 and 005:52
ouellettesrstroyan, i have never used this script command and suggestions for basic usage?05:52
tantric132nickrud, im not doing what I said. that's too much time haha im not reformating everything again for the third time. so what are you suggesting?05:52
NigelS_sxealex: you can fiddle with the sudo settings certainly, timeout etc, but "pre-declaring" a pw sort of eliminates the point of one05:52
mrb88NigelS_ - How would I set my network to use that module?05:52

mrb88NigelS_ - http://pastebin.ca/90215405:58
thiemstertanubis: yes05:58
Tanubisthiemster that's... messy.05:59
thiemstertanubis: it may be possible, as the repartitioning may leave raw files behind05:59
NigelS_mrb88: and when you do that, what happens?05:59
thiemstertanubis: and those are what he's looking for05:59
mrb88NigelS_ - Nothing!05:59
Tanubisthiemster hmm05:59
mrb88NigelS_ - What should that be doing?05:59
xinxbrb05:59
xinxrestarting05:59
NigelS_Tanubis: strictly speaking I think he formatted the first 50gb of his drive05:59
thiemstertanubis: i recommended he use a recovery live cd (i saw one at http://www.rescubuntu.info/node/1) and he's trying it now05:59
thiemsterNigelS_: which is where his windows partition had been06:00
NigelS_thiemster: yes, though not necessarily all of the files that he wants06:00
TanubisYeah...  he's definately not going to be able to use that tutorial he linked me to though.  That's for recovering data from an unbootable but intact NTFS partition using a liveCD.06:00
thiemsterNigelS_yes, i sort of get it06:00
NigelS_depending on the degree of fragmentation etc06:00
thiemstertanubis: i tried to tell him that06:00
thiemstertanubis: i'm not sure if he got it06:00
wng-Hi, I just installed 7.10 Desktop, and it didn't autodetect the speaker/headphone output on my laptop, how can i fix this?06:01
NigelS_I don't think he understood anything ppl told him tbh06:01
stroyanXabriel: What does   ls -l /usr/bin/sudo   show now?  The file needs to be owned by root as well as being mode -rwsr-xr-x .06:01
Tanubis<sigh>06:01
thiemsterwell, he's really new06:01
mrb88NigelS_ - what should those commands be doing?06:01
thiemsterhe didn't see "format" at the installer for ubuntu, so he didn't think installing ubuntu could wipe out windows06:01
NigelS_mrb88: it brings the net interface down, unloads the modules, then reloads one of them, then brings the interface back up06:01
mrb88NigelS_ - how would it know what to set eth0 as?06:02
Xabrielstroyan: -rwsr-sr-x l <usrname> <usrname> 91776 date/time06:02
mrb88NigelS_ - also, in lsmod, would having 0 as what it's "being used" for be meaningful?06:03
NigelS_mrb88: eth0 is just the name of an interface, if there is only 1 card then it will get that - though as I say udev manages assignments in /etc/udev/rules.d/06:03
_Oz_Hi, Ubuntu friends!06:03
soldatshi06:03
bardesanesHello. A bit of an odd question but I would appreciate any help: I have a USB soundcard which Ubuntu will play sounds through, but when I run JACK Audio Connection Kit, it plays the sound from the onboard soundcard. So, I disabled the onboard soundcard and now Ubuntu has an X over the sound icon. The sound plays through the USB card but when I start Jack, it won't even start up. Can anyone give me any suggestions?06:03
NigelS_mrb88: the number indicates the number of other modules that are dependent upon it iirc06:03
NigelS_mrb88: e.g. a usb driver tha has multiple usb devices relying upon it06:04
Tanubiswonder if you could use ddrescue after doing something like that06:04
_Oz_Got a REALLY strange one.  I bet you've never heard of this one before.  I have an old dell desktop, a celeron 2.4ghz with 1gb RAM.  The DVD drive will NOT recognize an ubuntu disc on startup, but it WILL recognize a vista disc (which is what is presently installed.)  BOTH DISCS were created by the SAME BURNER.  And to be sure, I burned a new Ubuntu disc.  It reads fine in other machines and drives, just not that ONE DRIVE on the vista machin06:04
_Oz_e.  Any ideas?06:04
mrb88NigelS_ Ah ok. So no way to tell if it's being used?06:04
stroyanXabriel: if <usrname> is root then you are fine.  Otherwise you need to go back to booting in recovery mode and do chown root:root /usr/bin/sudo  and  chmod u+s /usr/bin/sudo .  I wonder how many other files had their permissions changed?06:04
Xabrielstroyan: I'll try that06:05
Xabrielstroyan, hopefully not many :/06:05
mrb88NigelS_ Really just trying to see if it's using pcnet32 or vmxnet06:05
NigelS_mrb88: what do you mean by being used - if the module is loaded it's loaded - you can check logs like /var/log/messages and /var/log/syslog for any output there - but otherwise, use lsmod to make sure the modules you need are loaded and make sure that the interface as acquired an address and is up using ifconfig06:05
NigelS_mrb88: which is loaded?06:06
mrb88NigelS_ It keeps loading both pcnet32 -and- vmxnet06:07
mrb88NigelS_ Both are loaded.06:07

thiemsterNigelS_: do you know if xinx ever got the information back?06:12
danielski_pldo i need to install anything to port movies and stuff over?06:12
NigelS_mrb88: I see what you mean - sounds like a problem with the virtual server, if you edit /etc/modprobe.d/aliases you could create an alias - you can also add an entry to blacklist to prevent the wrong driver from loading06:12
tantric132nickrud, you there?06:12
danielski_plchubs_ : do i need to install anything to port movies and stuff over?06:12
chubs_danielski_pl: if you're referring to copying movies and songs from your ipod to your computer, gtkpod will do nicely06:13
fjfalconcan anyone say to in which rep are iwl3945 or ipw3945?06:13
stroyanXabriel: You really should look around for file permissions next.  If sudo was clobbered many others probably were as well.06:13
joequincyI'm prepping for my first Linux installation (besides DSL) and I don't have a clue where to start. I don't need any data saved off the HDD, and I don't want to keep the existing Windows installation06:13

NigelS_mrb88: I think the problem might be that you have an older install of vmware? possibly it made changes that aren't recognised  - do you have a modprobe.conf? yast is a suse tool called yet another setup tool - I can't think why you'd use it06:18
mrb88NigelS_ - I have the most up to date version. A forum thread recommended using YaST to examine the things. Is there an equivalent in ubuntu? Where is modprobe.conf?06:19
stroyanXabriel: You could compare them to a known good system.  Unfortunately apt doesn't have a permissions tester like rpm or other packaging tools do.06:19

mrb88NigelS_ - No file called modprobe.conf, but if I open up the modprobe directory, there's a vmware-tools file in there that I can open06:20
joequincyone more quick q: the previous owner kinda deleted the Windows partition, so the entire disk is unpartitioned space. Will I need to partition it first?06:21

badkittyQuick question.. I am just learning how to use pgp. I had created a first key but made a new one and deleted the old one. Now however when I try to attach signature, it is attempting to load the old key, how do I fix this?06:25
trance_techaudoes anyone else run amarok on ubuntu with windows samba shares as there storage?06:25
badkittyGPG06:25
joequincyclarification: it was working, then I chose "Start or Install Ubuntu" and it started a progress bar animation (along with the general sounds that accompany a working computer) then after about two minutes, the screen turned off and activity sounds died. It will not resume.06:25
trance_techaui'm running gigabyte network and amarok is heaps slow. it was fine until the last update (a while ago now)06:25
patogenHow high can the load be until the system becomes unstable? It's between 10 and 13 now...06:26
trance_techauamorok often hangs now06:26
speeddemon8803patogen, it depends on the processor06:26
sn00zertrance_techau, i have similar issues, it hogs the cpu on track changes, i think its related to the cover manager but i don't know how to fix it06:27
NigelS_patogen: the system won't necessarily become unstable though it may not respond to requests very quickly...only problem with stability is if it overheats :P06:27
amin1i want to play the game halo that i hav already install before i install ubuntu but it says.....cannot find 'Z:\home\aminpro\config.txt'06:27

Agent_bobamin1 did you make id dir named Z: ?06:29
jodasHey max you there?06:29
NigelS_Agent_bob: that's just the wine drive mapping i assumed06:29
jodasDoes anyone know what x86 means when it comes to hardware?06:30
Agent_bobNigelS_ could be i guess.   i thought wine defaulted to a c: mapping06:30
nevillex86 CPU architecture?06:30
NigelS_the, pentium, athlon series of processors jodas - based on x86 architecture developed by intel06:30
ThreeFingerPetejodas: it means a pc of 286/386/486 or some sort of pentium06:30
fx|RabBitjodas: means not 64 bit but 3206:30
bullgard4/usr/share/doc/linux-doc-2.6.22/Documentation/filesystems/ext2.txt speaks about an 'Extended_Filesystem' and an 'Second Extended Filesystem'. What is the difference between these two terms?06:30
bardesanesI reenabled the onboard sound in the BIOS and now the the startup sound plays through the onboard soundcard, most everything else plays through the USB drive except for JACK which plays through the onboard sound. Anyone have an idea of what could cause this?06:31
jodasSo it will only work with X86 type computers correct?06:31
jodasif you are downloading a program that says that correct?06:31
ThreeFingerPetejodas: correct06:31
fx|RabBiti have the problem that i cant resize windows anymore as soon as i use compiz, what could be the reason for that?06:31
NigelS_Agent_bob: for the c: drive yes, but he almost certainly tried to run halo from somewhere else06:31
NigelS_fx|RabBit: I haven't seen that problem since the really early stages of compiz06:32
fx|RabBitjodas: precisely that means it does not work on 64 bit architectures06:32
crediblefx|RabBit: please join #compiz-fusion06:32
NigelS_jodas: PPC, Alpha, these are examples of non-x8606:32
amin1i hav go to the website http://appdb.winehq.org/......but where do i search the data base so i can my game thats in the database?06:32

fx|RabBitNigelS_: nope06:33
NigelS_jodas: why would you expect MS VS++ to run in linux?06:33
ThreeFingerPetejodas: there are linux/ubuntu C++ compilers.06:34
jodasWell you were the only chatroom that I knew of that had people with some knowledge on computers.06:34
jodasI have Vista.06:34
jodasI have had ubuntu before.06:34
jodasThat is why I came here and asked.06:34
ThreeFingerPetejodas: it works a little differently and microsoft stuff wont compile right for ubuntu06:34
jodasI know that.06:35
ThreeFingerPetejodas: you are asking in the right place!06:35
NigelS_jodas: but your question was about linux not about a general issue...I mean you get why Wine is needed yes? it implements windows libraries in linux06:35
mrb88NigelS_ - Thanks for your help. Probably going to have to reinstall ubuntu06:35
astro76jodas: try ##windows06:35
jodasOk.06:35
NigelS_mrb88: if you google it looks like several ppl have this problem, try setting an alias for eth0 in the aliases file, it can't hurt06:35

I've finally gotten to the point where it's "usable" (but compiz still isn't working... pop-up menus are occasionally scrambled... windows move sluggishly and leave artifacts, etc)... anyone know what could be wrong?06:36
mrb88kk night06:36
joequincyVisual Studio will work in Vista on either a 64bit or 32bit. Microsoft actually managed to think of that in advance. The DL installer detects your architecture and installs the correct components for your system06:36

macogwkahrytan: i just did a simulated install, and i dont see any xfce stuff listed07:22
NeonLightningand that lets ubuntu read it but get permission denied when i try and mount that nfs07:22
kahrytanmacogw->  configure it07:22
macogwkahrytan: i didnt actually install it.  i just did simulated to see the full dependency list.  this laptop would die if i tried to run mythtv07:22
bijumonkahrytan: what this url tells, I could not undestand07:22

After about two minutes of that, the screen flicks on and off several times, before ending up off, but with the machine running. If I do nothing, it sits there forever.

jigsmacogw tnx for replying.. well i dont even an idea that beryl is old. so am going to use compiz instead07:28
macogwkahrytan: i thought that was what mythcontrols was for?  well if you get the deb for mythbuntu-control-center and download just that deb, you can always dpkg -i --force-depends to install it07:29
kirkor#evolution07:29
macogwkahrytan: it turns the errors about missing dependencie into warnings07:29
karlNYjoequincy: I wonder if you can try dumbing-down to a lesser video-resolution07:29
macogwkirkor: /join07:29
macogwkahrytan: or --ignore-depends=xfce07:30
macogwkahrytan: there are a TON of things you can get around if you read the dpkg manpage07:30
kahrytanmacogw-> The control center does the installs.07:30

hotmonkeyluvis there a way to re-do the grub boot loader without installing ubuntu again? (I installed ubuntu, then installed suse in a different partition, but the suse bootloader is now the default one, but I like the one that came with ubuntu better)07:31
macogwkahrytan: well theyre all in the repos.  but if you want, do the 2nd thing i said and set it to --ignore-depends=<package-you-dont-want>07:31
joequincykarlNY: there's no option that I can find. Also, the error won't show up now... it just tells me to remove the disc, close the tray, and hit "enter". I do so and it turns off, not installed.07:31
jigso boy am so noob with this ubuntu system07:31
macogwjigs: which version of ubuntu are you using?07:31

Hammer89anyone know why emerald would cause Ubuntu to crash? (e.g., I enable emerald... log out... and I can't login again till I've uninstalled it)07:33
karlNYjoequincy:  there are options like F2, F3, F4, etc - they show you how to dumb-down the resolution07:33
macogwjigs: it's in system -> preferences -> appearance, in the desktop effects tab, i believe07:33
kirkorhi, how to get my password from evolution file?07:33

zornI'm having printing problems. my printer worked fine for months now it works intermittently. right now its not printing a pdf I want to print but it does print the test page from the printer configuration. So is my problem with cups?07:33
macogwkahrytan: you can install the control center with --ignore-depends=xfce and the control center will install.  then you can go ahead and use it to install the rest of the stuff07:34
Hammer89badkitty: you prolly have to find the source and compile it yourself07:34

joequincykarlNY: where's that disk formatting utility that someone mentioned earlier?07:34
joequincyoh, and I should have been more clear... there's only a "VGA" option... nothing else07:34
macogwbadkitty: no, sorry07:34

Jangariinstalling compizconfig-settings-manager will give you "advances desktop effects settings" in your system > preferences, jigs, which give you much more control over compiz, just be prepared for plenty of bugs07:34
macogwjoequincy: VGA is probably what you want07:34

Filled-VoidJangari, Doesnt work :(07:35
macogwkahrytan: maybe i dont understand what you mean.  do you install mythbuntu control center then use it and click around to pick what you want?  or does it happen during the dpkg configuration stuff?  or do they all come in as dependencies?07:35
joequincykarlNY: It was already erased and rewritten several times by the guy who gave it to me. I don't really care.07:35
karlNYFilled-Void: try ALT+SPACEBAR07:35

karlNYjoequincy: hey man this is a last-ditch-fallback idea -- there's probably a local ubuntu community group in your area - I'm sure if you showed up with the inspiron, they'd have you rocking out in no time.07:37

badkittyjoequincy: to my knowledge no.. what for?07:40
GunbladeIVgonzoism, a gud one? mean a configured one?07:40
Jangarical_: "cd" will "change directory", so you want "cd ~/Desktop/new\ folder"07:40
cal_I use / to specify dierctories and subs.. humm let me try.07:40
gonzoismGunbladeIV yeah,  a default one would be best07:40
cal_just like old MS dos?07:40
GunbladeIVgonzoism, it actually depends on your location to get the best server for upgrade07:41
gonzoismGunbladeIV is yours pretty generic ?07:41
Jangarimm, like unix,07:41
gonzoismGunbladeIV  i'm in US07:41
GunbladeIVgonzoism, first of all.. you need to open up System>administrator>software sources07:41
cal_thanks  I will try now07:41
joequincybadkitty: well, the disc I DL'd tonight isn't working. Period. I'm thinking of using the XP install disc to reformat the drive and then try installing Ubuntu again07:41
gonzoismGunbladeIV   done that07:41

gonzoismGunbladeIV i think i need a new sources.list file.07:42
Jangarialternatively, cal_, not sure if this works with konsole, but you might be able to drag and drop the folder into the konsole window, and it will print out the directory path07:42
GunbladeIVgonzoism, oh i see07:42
badkittyjoequincy: Hmm.. do you want windows installed at all ie dualboot?07:42
GunbladeIVgonzoism, :)07:42

joequincybadkitty: nope. Just Ubuntu. It's basically going to be a web portal/printer station (maybe OOo) so I don't want the extra crap from Windows07:43
badkittyjoequincy: Plus, what disc did  you download and how is it not working... your should get a good copy of an install disc that works07:43
neopsychecan anyone help me with problem on ubuntu server?07:43
GunbladeIVgonzoism, which mirror would you like to use?07:43
karlNYbadkitty: joequincy can't get his inspiron to load the install CD properly - as soon as he hits enter to install/load the CD, it flashes his monitor .... on/off/on/off and all he can do then is power down and reboot.07:43

joequincybadkitty: I boot from CD, and it loads the options screen. I choose the default first option (Start or Install Ubuntu), and it goes to a progress bar. After about two minutes of that, the screen flicks on and off several times, before ending up off, but with the machine running. If I do nothing, it sits there forever. If I tap the power button, the screen flicks on long enough for me to see...07:50
joequincyNote: it shows a "Loading Linux kernel" progress bar, which finishes. Then it shows the Ubuntu logo with an orange progress bar, which bounces back and forth for a while... then begins to "progress" from the left to right. When that bar fills, the screen turns off. There isn't any flickering... rather it turns off, then color fades (my bad, I mistook that LCD characteristic for flickering...07:50
joequincy...there's an error message (I'll try to get it in a sec) before ejecting the disc and blanking the screen. At this point nothing happens and I have to hold the power button to turn it off.07:50

wlastikfesha-> you dont have an ip address assigned to you, rerun either dhclient eth0;  or  /etc/init.d/networking restart08:10

oebMorning folks. I saw somewhere in the docs that there is a version of the ubuntu cd with a text only installer. Where can I download this? I can't see the option in the 'Get Ubuntu' or 'Download' sections of the website.08:42
BodsdaDidot, language?08:42

macogwoeb: the Alternate CD is a text-mode installer.  the Server CD results in a text-only system when you're done installing08:43
prince_jammysoeb: the ubuntu server might work08:43
rich1macogw: cool.  i was having trouble with firefox and applets.  i made xul.mfasl executable and now they work.  is that ok?08:43

ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about alternative cd - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi08:43

macogwrich1: whats that have to do with forum modship?08:43

macogwYamato: xubuntu is the lightest weight08:44
prince_jammysoeb: i have installed ubuntu server, it's text only and you don't really have to install any of the server stuff08:44
rich1macogw: i don't know.  i guess i just thought you guys knew everything.08:44
olskolirchello08:44
macogwYamato: a server install would be the smallest, but there'd be no graphical mousey stuff..just command line, and im guessing you dont want that08:44
Yamatok08:44
prince_jammysYamato: probably xubuntu08:44
oebprince_jammys, macogw, the problem is the live cd, it does not seem to like the fact that I only have 512 ram. I want gnome etc on the final system, I just dont want to have to install from within the live cd.08:44
macogwrich1: nah we just turn into mods if we're considered helpful and friendly and stuff and are there for a while08:44
macogwoeb: then use the Alternate08:45
prince_jammysYamato: unless you don't even want a gui, in which case ubuntu server08:45
Yamatoi do08:45
Yamatoi want a more stable alternative to Windows08:45
Yamatothat takes a lot less ram08:45
Yamatoand hdd space08:45
rich1macogw: ok.  i just hope i didn't post bad advice.08:45
oebmacogw, that's what I cant find. In the get ubuntu section of the website my only options for desktop is 7.10 and 6.06LTS. is the 6.06 the alt version?08:46
prince_jammysYamato: xubuntu is a small desktop (xfce) -- good if you have little ram, just fewer bells and whistles08:46
oebdoh, just saw it08:46
Yamatoi have 1024mb of ram08:47

Bodsdaoeb, the link i gave you, has the text based instaler download08:49
prince_jammysoeb: have had that problem. in addition to what others are saying, i would also try burning the cd at a slower speed if you are using it on the cdrom of a different machine08:49
oebBodsda, thanks, it's on the way down =)08:49
Bodsdaoeb, cool,.how do you no its freezed? is it just a black screen?08:49
