FurythorI was thinking if I could use /workspace and make there subfolders for projects. etc.00:00
EchoedSilencejeffMASTERflex: the file ends in .iso but is a winRAR archive00:00
Furythoror should I use /usr/local00:00
EchoedSilencejeffMASTERflex: That ok?00:00
prince_jammysFurythor: /usr/local/workspace00:00
Dr_williswinrar CAN open .iso files - that dosent mean that a .iso is an rar archive00:00
prince_jammysFurythor: is convention00:01
EchoedSilenceSo download it,and mount it to a CD?00:01
Dr_williswinrar just decided to grab the file assoiucation with iso files.00:01
jeffMASTERflexEchoedSilence: basically00:01
EchoedSilenceAh00:01
EchoedSilencejust checking00:01
patti_hey all, anyone know how to get k3b to burn m4a files?00:01
EchoedSilence>>00:01
=== patti_ is now known as PaTeeLA
EchoedSilencethanks guys00:01
Dr_willisPaTeeLA,  you mean to make a dvd-video disk?00:02
m1revening00:02
EchoedSilencemount the file i get from the DL, or extract it?00:02
MasterMelhow do i instal a tar.gz file?00:02
amenadoMasterMel-> tar.gz files are compressed archives thats all, you have to uncompress them first00:03
FurythorSo I will stick with that /usr/local/workspace00:03
StarfishI have a problem00:03
StarfishReiserFS: md0: warning: Filesystem on md0 cannot be mounted because it is bigger than the device00:03
brian__MasterMel: tar -xzvf filename.tar.gz00:03
PaTeeLADr_willis: no, it wont burn m4a files to audio disk00:03
Dr_willisPaTeeLA,  convert it to wave i guess with some other tool.00:03
PaTeeLADr_willis: got it working on other machine, just dont remember what was done... =(00:03
KhisanthEchoedSilence: you download the iso, use that to burn a cd00:03
M-Nagatoyou burn the iso you downloaded, EchoedSilence00:03
Dr_willisPaTeeLA,  May want toc heck the kubuntu homepage - the faq may mention what packatge you need then.00:03
EchoedSilenceThanks.00:03
EchoedSilenceOne last question before you get fed up and line me up in front of the firing squad00:04
EchoedSilenceuse daemon tools?00:04
M-Nagatodaemon tools is used for mounting images, EchoedSilence. you need to burn it to a physical cd00:04
Dr_willisEchoedSilence,  daemon tools to do what exactly? I missed the initial problem.00:04
KhisanthI don't recall that having a disk burning option00:04
prince_jammysFurythor: conventions: /usr/local/bin for custom programs(not from repos) /usr/local/doc , etc (similar to what you see in /usr/share)00:04
Dr_willisEchoedSilence,  to burn a .iso to cd. I tend to use 'burn at once' or some other tools... under windows.00:05
EchoedSilence<< Vista00:05
KhisanthDr_willis: it lets you mount various disk images00:05
MasterMelbrIan__amenado: thx i uncompressed it.. but for what file am i looking for?00:05
Dr_willisKhisanth,  i know what it does. :) i just dont know what hes wanting to do with it. heh.00:05

=== Jannita is now known as johanna
M-NagatoDr_willis, i think he's under the impression that you can install it while in windows like a normal windows application or something like that00:06
EchoedSilenceI wanna find a way to install Ubuntu using the .iso i downloaded offa the website00:06
KhisanthDr_willis: misread the "to do" :)00:06
Dr_willisIve seen 'others' mistakenly mount .iso files then copy the files to a real cd..  - that WONT work right. :)00:06
Konamsomeone knows a good app to convert an OGM with several audio streams to avi (being able to select the audio stream I want in the output file)? I use to have a script for this but I can't find it anymore, if someone can point me to one...00:06
Dr_willisKonam,  ive used avidmux befor to do that.. with  varying degrees of success. :)00:06
prince_jammysKonam sounds like avidemux00:06
amenadoMasterMel-> well look around in that uncompressed directory, are there Makefiles? whats the xxx.tar.gz you downloaded?00:07
prince_jammysKonam avidemux: good app but not the most friendly, try installing00:07
Konamprince_jammys Dr_willis I tried it but I can't select the audio output00:07
Tailsfan!phpBB on Ubuntu00:07
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about phpbb on ubuntu - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi00:07
FurythorYeah well, this goes for offtopic but finnish high quality education system should give heavy asskick for swedish oldtimers and change swedish to be optional in schools... I mean who really needs it could study it, why to torment everyone with it, I have never needed it nor used it .... :C00:07

prince_jammysKonam thats the not friendly part -- i think there's a basic tutorial out there in the internet00:08
amenadoMasterMel is it a source file? whats the content after you have uncompressed it?00:08

wng-When I installed 7.10, my speaker output on my laptop is not recognized, I know it worked when i installed 6.10 on it awhile ago, anyone have any ideas?00:17
macogwhfmls: can you write to it as root?00:18
Jack_Sparrowhfmls: It will be a permissions issue00:18
macogwtelexicon: 1MB/s is fast00:18
hfmlsi can00:18
hfmlshow can i change permissions00:18
macogwtelexicon: but a reason aside from your card would be the speed of the server from which you're downloading00:18
neverbluehfmls, chmod/chown00:18
telexiconmacogw, the internet is not involved here.. this is a file transfer to a machine on the same LAN00:19
Dr_willishfmls,  to let a user wroite to it - i normally make a directory for the user, and chown THAT dir to be owned by the user.00:19
N3bunellwizardl : try to run " fsck " ass root to fix the problem00:19
telexiconmacogw, i should be getting like 5MB/s00:19
macogwtelexicon: oh.  what are the limits on your router? is it 10/100 or is it 10/100/1000? you cant get over 1Mib/s without 100000:19
Dr_willishfmls,  true the user dosent have full access to the root of the disk. but they got their own dir. I normally link to their home dir or elsewere00:19
telexiconmacogw, check please00:19
red_onei want to use an ISO image of the livecd as a package source - how do i do this?00:20
hfmlsi want to use deluge with that partition, so downloads go there.00:20
hfmlswhat should i do?00:20
macogwtelexicon: can you get more than that using a different OS wirelessly?  i know wireless has a lower limit than wired, just from the perspective of "that's how 802.11 works"00:20
hfmlsshouldn't permissions be ok? :S00:20
Dr_willishfmls,   make a dir. chown it to be owned by the user. the user will then have full access to that dir.00:20
macogwhfmls: is that partition going to be always mounted?00:20
Dr_willisis the easy way. :)00:21
telexiconmacogw, as in.. id like to go to another restaurant now00:21

I440rhi. im doing an ubuntu installation from within a gentoo system using debootstrap to an external usb drive.  i just spent THREE DAYS trying to do the same thing with debian but after the install i could not get it to boot00:21
=== mkquist__ is now known as mkquist
telexiconbecause i know 802.11g is supposed to get 54Mbit, and I am the only one using this access point00:21
I440rno matter what i tried in the kernel00:21
I440rnone of the canned kernels worked and none of the kernels i built worked00:21
nonetelexicon: for every frame, the media is sending 3 frames ... if it's to another wireless machine, the collision rate is big.00:21
hfmlsmacogw:  yes00:21
macogwtelexicon: oh ok.  i dont know what the limits are *shrug* it was just a guess00:22
macogwhfmls: ok then lets add it to /etc/fstab00:22
nonetelexicon: 54Mbit/s is a joke ... nobody gets that performance00:22
macogwhfmls: open /etc/fstab as root00:22
telexiconnone, thats fair but it should at least go half that00:22
telexiconnone, i know i can get 2MB or 3MB00:22
I440rim in a very serious bind here, i cant even begin to say how frustrated i am but i have to have either debian (which i abandoned 8 years ago or so) or ubuntu00:22
macogwhfmls: if you know how to use vim or nano "sudo vim /etc/fstab" or "sudo nano /etc/fstab" otherwise "gksu gedit /etc/fstab"00:22
nonetelexicon: how do you measure?00:23
nonetelexicon: and how is the setup?00:23
I440rand it HAS to support ipw3945 anhd it has to be bootable from an external usb drive out of the box00:23
=== mkquist__ is now known as mkquist
amenadoI440r-> you tried downloading liveCd ?00:23
nonetelexicon: half of what? 54Mbit?00:23
I440rits downloading NOW. its going to take about 3 hours00:23
macogwI440r: well ive booted ubuntu from an external hard drive on my laptop that has ipw3945 before...00:23
hfmlsok, i have fstab opened as root00:24
I440ri have to have this system installed, up and running, and the moblin image creator working and a whole new camera driver working by friday00:24
telexiconnone, i guess ill see how it goes00:24
I440rive been fighting this crap for 3 days. i need the fastest possible solution and i think debootstrap is it00:24
macogwhfmls: ok. add a line, probably just above the CD one, I'd say, and we're going to put that disk into the file00:24
Cafesolohello everyone00:24
macogwhfmls: you know the device name right? /dev/sdb2 or whatever it is?  that goes first00:24
I440rmac thats good to know but i dont think i can use the live cd to do this but im willing to try ANYTHING00:24
I440rlike i said, its downloading now00:25
hfmlsits disk00:25
Konamok, thanks, avidemux will do the trick, I just have to select the audio stream I want in audio--->main track.00:25
amenadoI440r-> what format did you have for the external USB drive?00:25
I440rext300:25
macogwhfmls: i know the others are shown as their UUIDs, but either works.  it's disk?  you mean the mount point is /media/disk?  that's now what i'm talking about right now. i mean the actual device/partition number00:25
CafesoloI have a friend whose windows computer stopped booting. I was thinking about going to his house and boot ubuntu from a live cd so I could mount the windows partition and make backups of everything00:25
I440rif thats what u meant00:25

Cafesolothe problem is that I'd need to burn some dvds00:25
Cafesoloso the question is00:25
hfmlsmacogw:  yes00:26
Cafesolocan I still run ubuntu if I remove the live cd?00:26
I440rthe problem was that none of the canned debian kernels would succesfully boot to it. the kernel would load, expand, go thru some crap and FREEZE00:26
macogwhfmls: do you know what the device label is?  if not, you can type "mount" and itll list what's mounted to tell you00:26
macogwCafesolo: no00:26
mkquist__Cafesolo: no i dont think so00:26
macogwCafesolo: you can make a boot flash drive though00:26
I440ri spend all day today doing kernel compile after kernel compile to try to get it to boot00:26
FlannelCafesolo: Does he not have two optical drives?  Try a USB to boot from00:26
hfmlsyes its disk00:26
Cafesoloinstalling ubuntu is not an option since he doesn't have a free partition00:26

hfmlsmacogw:  i want to access this partition from windows too, can u tell mhow to format to ntfs instead? cuz i know how to read write ntfs in ubuntu.00:27
macogwhfmls: that really doesn't sound right.  the first disk is /dev/sda and the second is /dev/sdb and the third is /dev/sdc and the first partition on the first disk is /dev/sda1 and the second on first disk is /dev/sda2 etc.  can you just paste the output of "mount" on http://pastebin.ca and link me to it?00:27
amenadoI440r-> if you were using initrd from liveCD i think you have to use squashfs00:28

When I boot the computer with only the maxtor harddrive, it's recognized. when I boot the computer with another harddrive in, the maxtor harddrive fails to be recognized at all. I've tried all jumper settings. Is there something else that could be preventing this harddrive from being recognized?00:30

=== mkquist__ is now known as mkquist
macogwhfmls: either way, if you want it to automount the partition as writable for you, you're going to need to put the partition into /etc/fstab, so i dont see how ntfs would help any (other than making it so that i don't know what the available options are for adding it to fstab)00:32
Dr_willis!ext200:32
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about ext2 - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi00:32

ubotuext3 is the default filesystem on Ubuntu, and the most popular on Linux. You can read/write from Windows to ext3 via http://www.fs-driver.org00:32
mneptokprince_jammys: it can with a driver00:32
Dr_willisWith the proper driver - windows CAN read/write ext2/300:32
mneptokhfmls: in that case, use FAT3200:32

macogwshadowvice: currently, upgrades are only supported from one version to the one right after it.  skipping is not supported.  for LTS's, there is work being done to make it possible to smoothly go from one LTS to the next, skipping what's in between (probably involves it doing a bunch of extra checks regarding configuration files and software versions)00:33
amenadodanielski_pl->  ps aux00:33
pike_danielski_pl: ps -a  or ps aux is nicely formatted00:33

prince_jammyshfmls: vfat will work for sharing between linux and windows00:34

hfmlsis that the only way to format in ntfs ?00:34
compu73rg33khmm anyone have a clue for me?00:34

danielski_plgnome says i still have an open firefox window yet... i dont c one, how do i go about killing it00:35

NigelS_Dr_willis: awesome game is s2, however to quoth the devs:"our opengl render guy has gone AWOL" so the linux client is delayed atm :(00:38
PicachooDr_willis IC.  whats your fav games00:39
shadowviceSo by building a 7.10 server in the next few days and then updating to the next release within a small amount of time should be painless?00:39
john_if anyone can help with a small teamspeak difficulty a private message would be greatly appreciated00:39
I440rok so whats the joe editor called in ubuntu00:39
Dr_willisNigelS_,  Bummer. I been meaning to buy the game. But havent  seen it in stores yet.00:39
I440rand i assume to install things you do "apt-get" ?00:39
iratikI've lost my window decorations (the title bars and borders) , I installed the "Advanced Desktop Settings Manager" ... and made sure window decorations are checked ......... Still no window deocrations.... what can I do?00:39
Dr_willisPicachoo,  lots of neat GPL games out for Linux, (and ported to windows also)  'rocksndiamonds' is a MUST get. :)00:40
sleeki put an ftp://... into my /etc/apt/source.list but it doesn't seem to work ... is there a way to get apt to recognize ftp sites?00:40
Dr_willis!info rocksndiamonds00:40
I440rcant find joe at all. is it even IN ubuntu00:40
uboturocksndiamonds (source: rocksndiamonds): Arcade style game. In component multiverse, is extra. Version 3.2.3-3 (gutsy), package size 384 kB, installed size 1256 kB00:40
=== c is now known as Charitwo
NigelS_Dr_willis: I'm not sure you will, S2games have been keen to pioneer new methods of distribution - so you can download the full game and play (in windows) for 5 hours then you can opt to buy - if you want physical media, artwork and a guide you can pay $15 extra for the collectors edition though that hasn't shipped yet00:40
wng-I440r,00:40
wng-I440r, 'sudo apt-get install joe' then the command is 'joe'00:40
I440rnope00:41
I440rwng it cannot find any package named joe00:41
prince_jammyslol00:41
I440rdo i have something missing from my sources.list?00:41
Dr_willisNigelS_,  most likely - after 5 hrs i wouldent want to play any more either. Heh heh .. Been getting most of my games from STEAM on windows lately00:41
wng-I440r, possibly, though mine is default from installation00:41
wng-I440r, pastebin yours00:41
PicachooDr_willis any more00:41
Jack_Sparrowiratik: I think it is something like compiz --replace  but ask in #Compiz00:41
I440rits one line why pastebin?00:42

ubotuFound: joe00:42
I440rthats my entire sources.list00:42
Dr_willisPicachoo,  check the packatge manager for games.. thers dozens of them. The 'Linux game tome' has info on others.00:42
iratikthanks jack sparrow00:42
Jack_Sparrownp00:42
Dr_willisPicachoo,  depends omn what kind of games you like. Theres also dozens of 'emulators' for other systems00:42

PicachooDr_willis will i have to get special gaming joysticks compatible with linux?00:42
ubotujoe (source: joe): user friendly full screen text editor. In component universe, is optional. Version 3.5-1.1 (gutsy), package size 357 kB, installed size 1148 kB00:42
iceswordhi00:42
NigelS_Dr_willis: yeah, I quite like steam as a platform - sort of anaologous to a closed source repo model I guess; S2 is pretty addictive, the demo has a few restrictions - i.e. you can't spawn as hellbourne and have a longer respawn time, nor can you command00:42
Jack_SparrowI440r: Enable universe00:42
Dr_willisPicachoo,  special?  Never needed any special ones. of course I cant thinkof any games that need joysticks these days00:43
PicachooDr_willis emulators like virtual box and vmware?00:43
I440r?00:43
wng-I440r, try using this website: http://www.ubuntu-nl.org/source-o-matic/ to generate a sources.list00:43
I440rJack_Sparrow, say again in english?00:43
PicachooDr_willis what do you mean by emulators?00:43
wng-oops00:43
NigelS_Picachoo: ET:quakewars, quake3, ut2k4, doom3 - these have native linux clients00:43
Dr_willisPicachoo,  no ' console emulators' like the SNES, NES, PS1 and PS200:43

NigelS_Picachoo: joysticks should work if your joystick controlled is supported which is most prob is, however I wouldn't warrant than any special features of said joystick that depend on windows software will work00:45

NigelS_starked: yep, I suspected as much - if you'd been searching for grub options you wouldn't have gotten far00:48
PriceChildkbrooks, which probably isn't ipv6 compatible, nor your isp00:48
wng-I440r, yep, apt-get update, then apt-get install joe should work00:48

PriceChildI440r, not intended for you sorry.00:50
Jack_SparrowI440r: Does that answer your question on how to get joe?00:50
NigelS_john_: mic is usually muted by default iirc, have you tried alsamixer from the cmdline or the gnome vol control to correct?00:50
dogmeatPriceChild, if you can't actually get an Ubuntu question answered here, not sure what there is to talk about00:50
patogenHow come when I want to install awesome it says I don't have libc6? If I try to install libc6 it says I have the latest version00:50
I440rlol i got joe but being able to get ubunto booted is my prime objective here...00:50
PriceChilddogmeat, its a good thing you can get questins answered then. No more offtopic chatter.00:50

bytecolor"gnome-terminal" reads my .bashrc, "gnome-terminal -x vim" does not00:52
dogmeatPriceChild, ive never actually had an answer to any ubuntu related question i asked00:52
putnumhow can i get ubuntu to log out after so many minutes?00:52
simmerzcan i get the current running kernel config from the stock image? or does it not provide something like /proc/config.gz?00:52
I440rPriceChild, the standard debian one didnt00:52
patogenNigelS_: http://packages.ubuntu.com/, it was in the hardy part ... I'm running gutsy however ...00:52
PriceChildI440r, this is #ubuntu.00:52

bytecolorbut it's not debian...00:53
Pelobytecolor, it is based on debian00:53
chubs_bytecolor: well, it is debian00:53
NigelS_simmerz: the stock kernel doesn't provide config.gz afaik - though if you checkout the actual dev package you can see the config file00:54
patogenNigelS_: Well does hardy use other versions of libc6 or what?00:54
PhotocopyThis is the fourth time I've tried to install ubuntu. Each time, it hangs at scanning mirror configuring apt.00:54

NigelS_john_: forgetting about TS, can you get the mic working at all - if you try to record sound from it just in linux?00:57
Jack_SparrowPhotocopy: It may not be the answer, but if it is hanging on accessing the mirror, it should go past that if it has no connection.. that is the hope anyhow00:57
I440rlimited time. and i mean SEVERELY limited.00:57
iceswordPriceChild, what abnormal00:57
I440rbut im downloading the iso now too00:57

iceswordPriceChild, you said any reason for doing a not normal install]00:58
I440rya00:58
PeloI440r,  get it in torrent ,  30 min to an hour00:58
PriceChildI440r, if you debootstrap, and get that ready then change all the config files needed and other random stuff... quite a long time00:58

alecwhI'm currently using the "Goom" visualization for Totem. Lately I'm getting very bored of it, is it possible to download additional visualizations for Ubuntu?01:33
NigelS_elninja: yes, the interface isn't the point wrt the limited number of writes and people have changed the algorithms that handle disk commits to better distribute them over the disk - fragmentation is not an issue with flash after all since all blocks have the same access rate - so I expect people will use them in future; I'm looking forward to - just need the cost/size ratio to improve and overall capacity01:33

glickanyone?01:39
elninjaNigelS_, yeah. Right now though, you can pick up an 8gb drive for relatively cheap (<$50). In most cases, that 8gb is enough for the system files and software. Then you have the entire hard disk free to use for your swap partition, /home partition, and any other data. You can buy a second usb key to use for redundancy, in case your OS gets fucked up. That way you just plug in your backup, and everything is back up and running wi01:40

maximilion_Picachoo, No no, you will get accurate sound both if you spend some time setting up OSS or emulating it with ALSA :)01:49
NigelS_Photocopy: gnome is automounting but for some reason your ntfs partition has been marked as dirty - that is to say it wasn't properly shut down - you need to boot into windows and then run a disk check on it, maybe schedule one - otherwise you can use the ntfsfix tools to fix the partition, or you can temporarily force the mount - I wouldn't recomment the last option01:49
Picachoomaximilion_ will that slow the speed of game or it will be just like windows speed?01:49
maximilion_Picachoo, what you mean is System Beep I think (the small speaker on the mobo :P)01:50

Alangarak.. what would i put in the line to have it not automatticly go to the first on the list?01:56
maximilion_Picachoo, wine is not an emulator - it runs the intel code right off, so you should get the same CPU performance. To get the best video card performance, put in some time to get the correct Ubuntu gfx card drivers. Sound shouldn't effect graphics performance at all, but if you have a Pentium 3 sound might slow things down...01:57

noodzhey, i have kind of a strange request... i'm looking for a way to disable ubuntu's battery sensors so that the battery will continue to charge even though ubuntu believes its full.  i know the reading in gnome is wrong because when the battery has "2 minutes remaining" it actually stays on for over an hour... I think its capable of more, but it stops charging at 20wh ccompared to an original 8002:11
PhotocopyNigelS_: Thanks, now I need to get sound working, and ubuntu studio installed so I can start working on my homemade solo album. whoot02:11

eko_hermiyantoHow I could scan for virus on network computer?03:09
Soludrarpj8: I found an 'nv' entry, but no "nvidia" entry03:09
eko_hermiyantoI have an ubuntu machine and I want to scan for viruses on another computer(linux too) in the same network?03:09
nickrud!virus | eko_hermiyanto03:09
ubotueko_hermiyanto: A/V software is available, however read this to understand why Linux does not have a virus problem: http://librenix.com/?inode=2103:09
viktorhi im using ubuntu 7.10 with compiz just wondering how do i know what theme files i can download gtk1 etc03:10
rpj8Soludra: nv is the community 'open' drivers. Try installing 'nvidia-glx' or 'nvidia-glx-new' for the proprietary ones.03:10
Jack_Sparrow!virus03:10
NigelS_eko_hermiyanto: you can use clamav, mount the remote machine's samba shares with fuse-smb etc03:10
rpj8Soludra: If you have a newer card, go for -new03:10
nickrudviktor: emerald and metacity for window titles and borders, gtk2 for inside the windows03:10
pteagueok, if i can't use system -> preferences -> screen resolution to change my resolution... wth am i supposed to use?03:10
=== ubuntu is now known as perrako
xsystemxIs it normal my xorg.conf does not have a Module section?03:11
d4rkmonkeypteague, edit your xorg?03:11
Soludrarpj8: it says I've already installed that.03:11
rpj8xsystemx: Does everything work as it should?03:11
rpj8Soludra: then change the nv to nvidia03:11
pteaguea game changed my current resolution somehow... how the hell do i change it back?03:11
xsystemxrpj8 - yes, so far, I am trying to configure everything for compiz03:11
nickrudpteague: try clt-alt +/-03:11
Scunizipteague, ctrl+alt+backspace03:11
Jordan_Uxsystemx, Xorg is becoming less dependent on the Xorg.conf with every release03:12
nickrudpteague: not backspace, that restarts X03:12
Scunizinickrud, right..03:12
rpj8xsystemx: Then I wouldn't worry about it. If it's not there, you obviously don't need it.03:12
nickrudScunizi: lol, what a boo boo03:12
perrakoHey guys -- this morning I awoke to the pretty picture of grub error 17. I didn't restart my computer, so it must have done it.03:12
Scunizinickrud, only thing that has worked for me when a game goofed the res03:12
perrakoright now, I can't boot onto my ubuntu or windows partitions03:12
wease|kind of like aptitude not relying on super cow powers03:12
* wease| frowns03:12
perrakoSuper Grub Disk didn't work, and I'm in the live cd right now and it doesn't show those partitions03:12
meoblast001i have a brother MFC-5440CN printer and i have a project tommorrow that i would really like to print off instead of putting it on a flash drive and taking it in asking a teacher to print it. I forget where the cups error logs are but i remember it saying the error was due to something called filters, how would i fix these to work with my printer?03:13
NigelS_perrako: HD failure?03:13
rpj8perrako: Boot from a live cd, follow this: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/ubuntu/reinstall-ubuntu-grub-bootloader-after-windows-wipes-it-out/03:13
wease|i do miss those cows03:13
perrakoI'm scared it might be hd failure03:13
pteagueok, is there a way to change my screen resolution without rebooting the x server?03:13
nickrudScunizi: restarting X was my next advice, if the +/- didn't work. But mentioning why you suggested backspace would prevent suprises03:13
rpj8perrako: Oooo ouch. on second thought it might be an hdd failure.03:13
NigelS_perrako: if your machine rebooted itself, and you can see no partitions it doesn't look good03:13
Scunizinickrud, sometimes takes the fun out of it.. but I see your point.03:13
kenan_How come when I have my graphics card drivers installed, my computer screen will randomly turn black and there is no way to fix it unless I restart the computer, is there a way to fix this?03:13
NigelS_perrako: from the livecd try using the SMART tools to check it03:14
xsystemxthx all03:14
rpj8kenan_: Your card might not be supported by the drivers.03:14
NigelS_kenan_: which driver?03:14
perrakoK, let's see how that goes03:14
rpj8kenan_: What kind of card do you have, and what does it say under driver in "etc/X11/org.conf"03:14
RedHeronOkay, got kind of a strange question: How do I discover what user/group combination the apache server on my Ubuntu box is using?03:14
rpj8Wow, loads of X problems tonight.03:14
CyanideDfinally03:14
Soludrarpj8: I changed the config file, should I restart X now?03:14
nickrudpteague: if the +/- doesn't, and the change res doesn't, then restart is basically it03:15
kenan_rpj8: my drivers are supported i have an ati radeon 1100 and the graphics work fine and everything, but i will be working on something, then boom, black screen and i have to restart computer03:15
CyanideDi just got my irc working with ubuntu03:15
nickrudRedHeron: ls -l /var/www03:15
wease|i rarely have issues with X so this interesting03:15
rpj8RedHeron: ls /etc/passwd |grep apache03:15
RedHeronnickrud: That's not correct.03:15
nickrudRedHeron: ls -l /var/www -d that is03:15
NigelS_kenan_: which driver are you using?03:15
rpj8Soludra: yep. give it a whirl03:15
perrakoNigelS_, where are the smart tools?03:15
CyanideDcan someone help me out i cant seem to get java on ubuntu03:16
rpj8kenan_: Definitely sounds like your card isn't *fully* supported. File a bug report at bugs.launchpad.net03:16
NigelS_perrako: the smartmontools pkg iirc03:16
pteaguewhy does system -> preferences -> screen resolution rely only on xrandr?  surely there's a way to get xvidmode to change the resolution?03:16
perrakok03:16
RedHeronnickrud: It's telling me root, which I already tried and which is incorrect.03:16
kenan_NigelS_: i cant check right now as i am not using that computer this is actually a problem my friend is having but we installed it via envy03:16
RedHeronrpj8: No results.03:16
edjuI have an external usb hard drive that I want to use just to transfer files to and fro.  How do I get enough of an os on it to accomplish that?03:16
nickrudRedHeron: it should be user www-data and group root03:16
RedHeronnickrud: Thanks.03:16
jappdevRedHeron cat /etc/apache2/apache2.conf |grep Group03:16
NigelS_kenan_: what is envy?03:16
kenan_NigelS_: ive read on the forums that people use the same card as me and its fine for them and I have windows dual booted and i dont get any errors03:17
rpj8RedHeron: My bad...03:17
scibotHi, in a game development forum this guy appears to need some help installing the intel video drivers with opengl support under Ubuntu, http://www.rtsoft.com/forums/showthread.php?p=7180#post718003:17
rpj8nickrud: Wait, ubuntu doesn't use the passwd file under /etc/03:17
rpj8?03:17
nickrudRedHeron: it only matters if apache is expected to write to there03:17
nickrudrpj8: yes, passwd and group03:17
CyanideDcan someone help me out i cant seem to get java on ubuntu03:17
NigelS_kenan_: well windows uses an entirely different driver so its not really relevant to this - I ask as ATI written drivers have problems with black screens and hanging x servers03:17

FLUXxXxhow do i get the .config file for the currently running kernel ?03:18

kenan_NigelS_: yes i am03:18
NigelS_kenan_: sounds like a bug with them03:18
RedHeronrpj8: Thanks.03:18
rpj8RedHeron: Pretty sure if you used cat /etc/passwd |grep apache it'd work03:18
nickrudCyanideD: sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre  sun-java6-plugin03:18
NigelS_kenan_: they are very buggy, ati still can't write drivers even after the amd takeover03:18

meoblast001UncleChevitz: i know Seamonkey is available for linux and if you get WINE, you can run Dreamweaver 8 with Ubuntu03:20

nickrudFLUXxXx: because it's a production kernel?03:22
UncleChevitzCS3 just came out a few months ago I use it on my windows box, thnx meoblast03:22

meekolopeChrisbst1: unless you have a spare router/switch sitting around you can use03:43

NigelS_jtmoney: you're probably not sharing files from your machine?03:45

Gun_Smokein Ubuntu?03:52
NigelS_jtmoney: ok, what I think is happening: in the absence of a defined server for handling requests, windows machines jockey for position to become the local master browser - that is the machine that holds the directory of the names of the other machines on the network - what is probably happening is that your machine is querying and receiving replies from this machine but it then is either turned off or unavailable, at which point a new election takes place t03:52
jtmoneywow, that sucks03:52
jtmoneybut thanks for the analysis :)03:52

KalirI've got the newest version of nspluginwrapper anyhow.05:06
KalirTesting firefox now...05:06
kaushalnickrud: I have to connect to Internet through pppoe05:06
usserSurvivorman: its a workaround for 64bit firefox05:06
mark4i tried e17 but someone asked me to help them install compiz and i was soooo blown away i broke down and installed kde lol05:06
telexiconmark4, ah.. so you are one of those non-changers huh05:06
nickrudkaushal: a cable modem?05:07
usserSurvivorman: if u have 32 bit version of ubuntu u dont need it05:07
Survivormanah... thanks kalir05:07

Survivormani mean usser05:07
kaushalADSL 2 Modem05:07
usserKalir: then u should have flash working now05:07
mark4telexicon, im a heretic. im a software engineer who "hates" c.  i wrote a forth compiler for linux in 100% pure assembler lol05:07
raiinI love asm05:07
ste-foyI love raiin05:07
KalirNnnnope. Still not working.05:07
raiinwrite highly advanced software in masm05:07
telexiconmasm always looks like masochism05:08
nickrudkaushal: are you sure you can't have the modem handle the pppoe, and just use dhcp to connect to the modem itself?05:08
mark4if the site hosting it still existed you could check it out. i compile over 2 megs of source code per second05:08
jimlayjoin /debian05:08
Survivormanwhere did you move the plugin?05:08
jimlayoops05:08
Geoffrey2sigh....and probably insanely easy to do, if I can find someone who knows how.....05:08
raiinjust can develop alot faster than with c/c++ even though have been a c/c++ developer a good 10 years05:08
mark4i just developed an 8051 assembler, disassembler, and SIMULATOR all in 100% PURE forth05:08

raiinnice mark4!05:09
KalirYeah, the libflashplayer.so file is there.05:09
kaushalnickrud: how can i proceed05:09
nickrudmark4: my only question: can anyone else read it? rflol05:10
Bibliohello. i need to contact mark shuttleworth. i tried the contact email in his blog (claire newman at canonical), but apparently nobody there. could anyone pass me his adress, or get me closer? thanks.05:10
telexiconmark4, could you make us a nice open source flash implementation?05:10
usserKalir: are there are any other files that seem like flash plugins05:10
mark4nickrud you might hear more about it. chuck moore is developing 21 or is it 24 core cpus that are ultra low power and execute BILLIONS of opcodes per second05:10
n2diyWhen I double click on an Abiword file in Nautilus, Gedit opens it, how can I change that to default to Abitword?05:10
KalirNothing else got turned up by that command.05:10
mark4telexicon give me a spec for flash05:10
n2diy*Abiword05:10
usserKalir: did u restart firefox after u copied that file there05:10
telexiconmark4, eh.. well theres an issue with that05:10
KalirYep.05:10
nickrudkaushal: try pointing your browser at the gateway address05:10
Survivormann2diy i think you can change it by left clicking on the doc and changing it there05:10
Decameroneright click on the file in nautilus, go to "open with" and chooes abiword05:10

jappdevsphynx: watch the log file udev (tail -f /var/log/dmesg) while you try to connect again, and if it gives you any network errors, drop them in pastebin and post a link06:56
meekolopeoh ok so did u delete that line?06:57

spdfsissec3: There's a utility called ntfsfix07:50

guyfawkeI have a fresh installed gutsy machine with encrypted lvm [works fine LUKS passphrase on boot]. What I wanted achieve was to remove the passphrase prompt and use a USB flash drive instead. I created a new key from /dev/urandom and cryptsetup luksAddKey'ed it and copied the root.key to a usb flash drive..07:53

Stevethepiratebut thanks for ur help08:26
spdfStevethepirate: The file lists aren't up for a lot of the hardy packages08:26
Stevethepiratesarthor: Hai. Check out fstab08:26
spdfStevethepirate: The last kernel with it in is -4, as far as I know08:26
neil_dkeoni: I think you will need something like    "sudo mount -t auto /dev/sr0 <mount point>"08:26
sarthorStevethepirate, i am new to linux. dont understand fstab, !08:27
keoniwhy is that08:27
sarthorneil_d,  sudo mount -t auto /dev/sdb /media/hd108:28
sarthormount: special device /dev/sdb does not exist08:28
sarthorI want to identify what is my CD Drive, hda, sdb, or what??08:28
Stevethepiratesarthor: okay, fstab is a file, that basically gets run on startup.08:29
Stevethepirateyou can put ur mount options in it.08:29
neil_dsarthor:  I think you will need something like    "sudo mount -t auto /dev/sr0 <mount point>"   note not sdb use sr008:29
Stevethepirateand they will be run outmatically.08:29
