Shrekjussi01: I may do that. is it always the manufacturer who makes the driver, or are there third parties who make drivers for linux?17:07
firecrotchShrek:  Some manufacturers make drivers, but a lot are made by third parties17:08
jussi01Shrek: Sometimes it is 3rd parties, if the specs are public or someone reverse engineers it. However, best to talk to the manufacturer ang get them aware that linux is a good idea17:08

ubuntuhi all.... i m getting a grub error 15 file not found.. can anybody please help?17:11
shockheadjussi01: could the konq error be because I'm using the kde4 ppa? i think i'm getting konqueror 3.5.8 from that... which might not have the patch...17:12
mefisto__ubuntu: newly installed? or did you change something?17:12
jussi01shockhead: just thought of something, I know why mine works... I grabbed a deb off the forums..17:12
firecrotchubuntu: do you have a live CD or another way to access the contents of the hard drive?17:12
ubuntumefisto__: i think i updated a newly installed version of kubuntu 6417:12
ubuntufirecrotch: i am on a live CD17:12
shockheadjussi01: ooh... do you have a link?17:12
jussi01shockhead: 1 moment17:13

timmydlx: hur kom jag till svenska ubuntu17:13
ubuntufirecrotch: ok i ll try to... actually i m quite new to Linux on the whole17:14
jussi01shockhead: I assume you are on 32bit?17:15
shockheadjussi01: yeah17:15
firecrotchubuntu: you should be able to access the hard drive via the System Menu (it's the computer icon on the bottom panel)17:16
ubuntufirecrotch: i tried to get to it thru the thru the konsole and then vi but it seems to be an emtpy file17:17
mefisto__ubuntu: are you on livecd?17:17
firecrotchubuntu: you're probably looking at the one for the live environment, which doesn't exist17:17
ubuntufirecrotch: yes...17:18
ubuntufirecrotch: i m also panicking17:18
ubuntumefisto__: yes i m on live cd...17:18
firecrotchubuntu: there's no need to panic, it's most likely a simple issue17:18

ubuntufirecrotch: i tried loading the grub menu n then e to edit the line which said (hd0,0)17:20
jussi01Shrek: nice17:20
mefisto__ubuntu: you need to mount your linux partition in the livecd session so you can get to your menu.lst on the hard disk17:21
ubuntufirecrotch: mefisto__ i also looked in the system folders - root/boot/ but there is no folder called grub in it17:21
BluesKajpharaon, install libdvdcss2,libxine1-ffmpeg, w32codecs and kubuntu-restricted-extras17:21
ubuntumefisto__: but how do i that17:21
samuel16Hello everybody17:21
pharaonBluesKaj:  thanks  .. i try17:22
samuel16I have a problem with python-pygame17:22
BluesKaj!multimedia | pharaon17:22
ubotupharaon: Ubuntu 7.04 installs multimedia codecs automatically. For older versions of Ubuntu, or if you can't use the automatic installer, see https://help.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/desktopguide/C/common-tasks-chap.html - For multimedia applications, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MultimediaApplications17:22
pharaoni have kubuntu 7.1017:23
pharaonand he dont install aotomatic17:23
samuel16Because I have installed it froms source17:23
ubuntufirecrotch: mefisto__ i saw on the ubuntu forum where they said shifting back to hd(0,0) from hd(1,0) fixed their proble,, but for me its only one single hard disk17:23
firecrotchubuntu: If you open the System Menu and go to Storage Media, your hard drive should show up there17:23
ubuntufirecrotch: it does but there is no folder called grub inside the folder boot17:23
samuel16I mean from source because freevo won´t run with the deb package of python-pygame17:24
ubuntufirecrotch: unless i m looking at the folder structure of the live cd ?17:24
samuel16And now I want to install freevo but dependency python-pygame must be installed17:24
firecrotchubuntu: I think you're looking at the live CD17:24
ubuntufirecrotch: i feel the same17:24
mefisto__firecrotch: does livecd mount linux partitions automatically?17:25
samuel16But if I install python-pygame it gives me back error 117:25
ubuntufirecrotch: i can see my hard  disk but when i double click it, its nothing inside17:25
samuel16How can I install freevo without to install python-pygame?17:25
samuel16from source?17:25
firecrotchmefisto__:  Now that I think about it, I'm not sure...17:25
ubuntufirecrotch: mefisto__ the hard disk when double clicked shows sda117:26
firecrotchWell that answers that... it's mounted.17:26
ubuntufirecrotch: but it doesnt show anything inside17:27
BluesKajpharaon, do you know how to use the adept pkg installer ?17:27
mefisto__ubuntu: and in the sda1 directory? does it show your disk's root dir?17:27
ubuntumefisto__: on the left vertical menu there is a icon for root but i feel that belongs to the live cd17:28

ubuntufirecrotch: ok17:31

jussi01WorldBFree: on kubuntu, you should install kubuntu-restricted-extras17:41
Vermuxjussi01: what has to be done in order to install java/ java plugin17:41
jussi01Vermux: which bit?17:41
ubotuTo install a Java compiler/interpreter on Ubuntu, look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java - For the Sun Java runtime install sun-java5-jre from the !Multiverse repository. Enable the backports repository on Edgy to install sun-java6-jre. Please don't use Adept to install Java if you are on Kubuntu 6.10 (Edgy) or earlier.17:41
ubuntufirecrotch: i thought u must be pisd coz i got diconnected17:41
jussi01Vermux: ok, sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre17:41
firecrotchubuntu: Not at all, it happens :)17:41
ubuntufirecrotch: whew17:42
firecrotchubuntu: did you run the mkdir /mnt/sda1  command?17:42
ubuntufirecrotch: yes i had done that17:42
ubuntufirecrotch: i had done that by mkdir mnt/root17:42
ubuntufirecrotch: but i think i had messed up when i came to the part wher i had to replace th uuid17:43
firecrotchubuntu: Um?  you shouldn't have had to replace anything.... just run it as I typed it17:44
ubuntufirecrotch: ok i ll do that17:44
firecrotchubuntu: you should not get any output from it, it will just bring you back to a prompt17:44
ubuntufirecrotch: its says permission denied17:45
mefisto__firecrotch: you could just mount in /mnt. don't need a new dir17:46
firecrotchubuntu: silly me, sorry.  you need to put sudo in front of the command, so it should read "sudo mkdir /mnt/sda1"17:46
ubuntufirecrotch: ok17:46
firecrotchmefisto__:  not if there's something else mounted there17:46
firecrotchmefisto__:  like a cd-rom drive :)17:46
ubuntufirecrotch: yes it came to th prompt as u said17:47
firecrotchubuntu: the next command is: sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda117:47
ubuntufirecrotch: ok17:47
firecrotchubuntu: after that, you should be able to just open up Konqueror, put /mnt/sda1 into the address bar, and it will take you to the root of your installed system17:48
ubuntufirecrotch: ok it came bac to the prompt17:48
firecrotchSo inside of /mnt/sda1 is your installed system.  There should be a directory called boot17:49
ubuntufirecrotch: ok17:49
Vermuxjussi01: ok, I installed it. but this web says that there are missing java plugins17:50
jussi01Vermux: have you restarted firefox/konq?17:50
firecrotchubuntu: inside of there should be the grub directory, with the menu.lst file inside of it17:50
Vermuxjussi01: no17:50
jussi01Vermux: that would help17:50
Vermuxjussi01: If I click on the x all tabs will be lost?17:50
ubuntufirecrotch: yes it is there, i ve copied its contents.. shud i paste in the pastebin?17:51
jussi01Vermux: correct.17:51
firecrotchubuntu: yes please :)17:51
Vermuxjussi01: ok,17:51
jussi01however, if you dont have too many, then they should be listed in recetly closed tabs when you repoen17:51
ubuntufirecrotch: is this th url for the pastebin http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/56099/17:52
WorldBFreei get errors at the end about some launchpad repositories when i do apt-get update, whats that about17:52
jussi01WorldBFree: check out what it says on the kde4 install site17:52
Vermuxjussi01: the same problem17:53
Vermuxjussi01: when I click o17:54
jussi01Vermux: are you sure its a java applet, not flash?17:54
Vermuxjussi01: on Install Missing Plugins the only option I have is to install it manually. How do I do that?17:54
Vermuxjussi01: it says that the Java runtime environment is available17:55

mefisto__Dunas: you could try this: at grub menu when you boot, press "e" to edit the kernel line, and add "profile" at the end, then enter. press "b" to boot. It will take longer than usual to boot, but after that it should boot up a little faster18:06

firecrotchubuntu: that's fine, as long as you have one copy that exactly matches what it says in the menu.lst file, it will work18:06
unagi!defrag | snowdonkey18:06
ubotusnowdonkey: The default Ubuntu filesystem (ext3) is engineered to avoid fragmentation issues in most cases, see http://linkpot.net/behead/ for a simple example on how it achieves this. A package "defrag" is available in !Universe, however its use is not safe, and is generally not needed.18:06

ubuntufirecrotch: i m getting some microcode error18:17
firecrotchubuntu: Do you have a different error now?18:17
ubuntufirecrotch: it wont letme login to the x server/18:18
ubuntufirecrotch: u know it used to throw the microcode error but it ended up booting anyways18:18
firecrotchDunas: in /etc/default/bootlogd, change BOOTLOGD_ENABLE=No to BOOTLOGD_ENABLE=Yes18:18
BluesKajhey ubuntu , there several new users who don't bother giviung themselves anick using the ubuntu handle , perhaps you could nick yourself to identify yourself from the ubuntus who frequent this room on a daily basis . Then we know who we're talking to :)18:18
firecrotchDunas: you'll need to use sudo to edit that file18:19
ubuntuBluesKaj: hi there... i ll do that18:19
DunasAlright. It's set.18:22
DunasI'll be right back after rebooting.18:22
firecrotchDunas: Alright :)18:22
DaSkreechubuntu: Try /nick18:22
walmikhello firecrotch mefisto__ BluesKaj, this is ubuntu18:23

Vermuxhow do I know if Im getting multiserve updates?18:23

walmikfirecrotch: it keeps looping over this line at some interval and asks me for walmik-laptop login and password18:27
DunasThank you.18:27
mefisto__walmik: that .bak extension, and the other file that was in /boot, suggests that a kernel upgrade was interrupted. "sudo dpkg --configure -a" should fix that.18:28
walmikfirecrotch: i m on a compaq pressario amd64 turion18:28
walmikmefisto__: shud i type it now in the konsole18:28
mefisto__walmik: are you on livecd or ...?18:28

walmikmefisto__: live cd :(18:29
khelllhow to change file encoding from console ?18:29
walmikfirecrotch: ok i ll do that18:29

mefisto__sub[t]rnl: so there is no boot log now?18:36
sub[t]rnlwell, I'm guessing it gets written to /dev/console, so, nowhere18:36
sub[t]rnlyou can install a prior version of bootlogd to get it working again, sec18:37

ForgeAushow do I d/l a .deb from a repository outside of apt?18:44
ForgeAusie browse to a .deb list?18:44
firecrotchForgeAus: You mean you just want to fetch the deb instead of installing it?18:44
ForgeAusfirecrotch I want to get the .deb from a browser and copy it over to my kubuntu so that I can install it there18:45
ForgeAus(my kubuntu's networking is non-functional right now)18:45
firecrotchYou'll need to find it on packages.ubuntu.com then18:45
ForgeAusI need to fix fglxr and the networking and possibly X before I can get apt up18:45
walmikmefisto__: hi there18:45
ForgeAusok thanx :)18:45
walmikfirecrotch: hello18:45
mefisto__ForgeAus: http://www.getdeb.net/ might have the deb you're looking for18:45
firecrotchForgeAus:  All you should need to do to get apt working is get the networking working :)18:46
firecrotchno need for X at all18:46
walmikmefisto__: firecrotch: unfortunately i m still not able login18:46
firecrotchwalmik, welcome back again18:46
walmikfirecrotch: i m still in live cd18:46
firecrotchwalmik, when you boot, you get a login: terminal right?18:47
walmikfirecrotch: yes i do18:47
walmikfirecrotch: but its got that microcode error looping every now n then18:47
firecrotchwalmik: you can ignore that while you're working18:48
walmikfirecrotch: oh ok18:48
firecrotchwalmik: you'll still be able to log in and everything18:48
walmikfirecrotch: ok18:48
walmikfirecrotch: u know i think i messed up some time before i came to this channel.. i d replaced th uuid with sda1 and ths18:49
walmikfirecrotch: and it was displayed as something that was not resolved18:49
walmikfirecrotch: but maybe the configure thing took care of it18:49
tj__i'm using compiz and my header bar has disappeared for all the windows anybody know how fix this18:50
firecrotchwalmik: so you did "dpkg --reconfigure -a" ?18:50
GNU\colossusI'd like to associate all video/* media with mplayer running in a terminal (that is closed after mplayer exits) from CLI - any hints on how to do so?18:50
walmikfirecrotch: no not reconfigure... only configure.18:50
walmikfirecrotch: was i to do reconfigure?18:50
firecrotchwalmik:  no no, sorry, my mistake18:51
walmikfirecrotch: np18:51
firecrotchso you're still getting that error, and still not getting a graphical login?18:51
walmikfirecrotch: th way u had pointed out in the initial error that its not knowing wher the kernel is... wat do  think cud thisproblem be?18:52
walmikfirecrotch: i had run into some troubles getting the nvidia drivers installed as well18:52
walmikfirecrotch: cud it be related?18:52
walmikmefisto__: was that aah for me18:53
firecrotchwalmik:  Ok, now we're getting somewhere18:53
mefisto__walmik: yes18:53
walmikfirecrotch: man this is like awesome...18:53
firecrotchthe trouble you had with the nvidia drivers is causing you to not be able to get X to run18:53
walmikmefisto__: do u think life ll getback to normal for me?18:53
firecrotchwalmik: How did you install the nvidia drivers?18:54
walmikfirecrotch: using a lil program called envy18:54
walmikfirecrotch: for days i struggled to get the reso from 800 x 600 to 1280 x 80018:55
walmikfirecrotch: i m back to 800 now...18:55
firecrotchoh my18:55
firecrotchYou used Envy to install the driver, then you did an upgrade, didn't you?18:55
walmikfirecrotch: i gues i did that18:56
firecrotchwalmik:  That's what has caused your problem18:56
walmikfirecrotch: i wanted to install eclipse, for which i had to install jre which had its own trouble18:56
walmikfirecrotch: what shud i do now?18:56
mefisto__firecrotch: can we change nv or nvidia to vesa, so he can log in normally and continue from there, instead of livecd18:57
walmikfirecrotch: even jre is not installed properly giving me headaches to use phpeclipse18:57
firecrotchmefisto__:  That should work, yes18:57
ForgeAusthanx :)18:57
walmikmefisto__: by default it used vesa but it only allowed me 800 x 600... ths is obviously befor nvidia18:58
ForgeAusok firecrotch how do I go about fixing networking?18:58
firecrotchwalmik:  We need to get you back to a state where you can use your system, regardless of the resolution, then we can fix the resolution18:58
ForgeAuswas ok from the live cd, its meant to be DHCP18:58
walmikfirecrotch: ya i think that makes perfect sense18:59
ForgeAus(but I lost my /etc/ and trying to fix things)18:59
firecrotchForgeAus: you lost your entire /etc/ ?!18:59
* Level15 can't stop laughing18:59
ForgeAusit decided it wanted to be called a file instead of a directory18:59
firecrotchForgeAus: You didn't delete that file, did you?19:00
firecrotchYou can probably turn it back into a directory19:00
ForgeAusnot exactly19:00
ForgeAusfsck did that for me19:00
tj__is there a way to restart compiz the windows headers have disappered19:00
ForgeAusand placed a heap of files with numerical names in lost+found19:00
firecrotchtj__: killall -9 compiz.real && compiz --replace19:00
rothchildtj__ try compiz --replace19:00
walmikmefisto__: firecrotch: do i turn it to vesa by going into the system settings19:01
sub[t]rnltj__➜ if its just the decorations, do emerald --replace19:01
firecrotchwalmik:  If you're on the live cd, no19:01
ForgeAusits mostly symlinks to anything in /etc/ that got broken, but fglxr is one thing I really needed to fix19:01
walmikfirecrotch: ok19:01
ForgeAusI don't think I lost any libs19:01
tj__i did that and got a kwd crash19:01
firecrotchwalmik: you'll have to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf (on the hard drive)19:02
firecrotchwalmik:  and change nvidia (or nv) to vesa19:02
walmikok... just that or also the resolution19:02
jouelletteHi, Can anyone help me create a .deb package? It uses cmake and I"m having issues building the package correctly19:02
firecrotchwalmik:  Just that.  Leave the resolution for now19:02
walmikfirecrotch: ok19:03
ubotuThe packaging guide is at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackagingGuide - See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment/NewPackages for information on getting a package integrated into Ubuntu - Other developer resources are at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment - See also !backports19:03
mefisto__walmik: boot from hard drive and login, then "sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf" to edit the config file, and change "nv" or "nvidia" to "vesa"19:03
DaSkreechjouellette: ^^^19:03
firecrotchForgeAus:  I don't recommend this often (especially in linux) but...19:03
walmikmefisto__: u have telepathy... i was just gonna ask how to do that19:03
firecrotchForgeAus:  it's gonna be easier to reinstall19:03
ForgeAushehe firecrotch but I"m learning a heck of a lot more the hard way :)19:04
DaSkreechwalmik: That's not out till KDE 4.119:04
mefisto__firecrotch: it's case-sensitive, so watch the X11 when you type19:04
jouelletteDaSkreech: yeah, but it doesn't say anything about cmake, and that's what's causing issues...19:04
DaSkreechjouellette: #kubuntu-devel might be able to point you to help docs for that19:05
firecrotchmefisto__: I had it right :-P19:05
jouelletteDaSkreech: thanks19:05
walmikmefisto__: ok  thats an eleven after x isnt it... not a double L19:05
ForgeAusbesides reinstalling will remove all the downloads, etc on the drive...19:05
firecrotchForgeAus:  The only lesson here is that fsck can sometime fsck up your system19:05
mefisto__walmik: yes, uppercase X and one one19:05
walmikmefisto__: ok cool.. i ll do that19:06
firecrotchForgeAus:  If you're referring to packages that you've downloaded, yes, but unless you're on dialup, that shouldnt be too bad19:06
ForgeAusnah it was fscked up before I had to fsck it19:06
DunasHere's where I am. I really want to get Steam running in Wine, but it's being a complete arse. I think I need to update my graphics card or something, but it's hard to say what's wrong- even the people in #winehq can't really figure it out. Kubuntu is nice, but I spent $50 for games I can't play, and I'm not liking that prospect. I'm strongly tempted to change distributions/reinstall XP. Can someone talk me out of it? ; ;19:06
ForgeAusfirecrotch, vmware server is installed in there, lotsa wine apps19:06
=== kristjan is now known as kristjan_
ForgeAusand downloads in general (from theming to text files to iso's)19:07
firecrotchForgeAus: well, since /etc/ doesn't really change a lot, a good way to start your endeavor would be to copy /etc/ from a live CD session19:07
kristjan_ok then is hardy heron CD with kde4 going to be released? how long do we hate to wait?19:07
ForgeAusalready done that :)19:07
ForgeAus(cept that it has caspar, so I think Ir eally should have copied one from a fresh vmware install maybe)19:08
firecrotchForgeAus:  Shouldn't matter too much, but that might work out better19:08
ForgeAuswell now I have fglxr it should help but still no networking19:09
firecrotchForgeAus: well, what is networking doing? are you not getting an IP from DHCP?19:09
ForgeAusI don't even seem to have an /eth0/19:10
sledhow can I turn on my second screen? I have a DELL Inspiron 6400 notebook19:10
sledI set up a dual screen, but my second screen is always black19:10
sledbut the LED is green19:10
firecrotchForgeAus: /etc/init.d/networking restart   any help?19:11
vltHello. When I have open an OpenOffice window on one screen and then---from another pc but logged in as the same user---open an office document it opens on the first pc. Any idea how to prevent this?19:11
ForgeAusdunno I'll have to reboot into kubuntu and try it19:12
ForgeAushmm maybe I can use vmware to boot into it19:12
tj__so when i open up the command line and type emerald --replace it work sthen i close the command line and the window headers disappear19:12
firecrotchForgeAus:  That might not be a bad idea, but doesn't vmware use a generic hardware profile inside the guest OS?19:12
ForgeAusthats ok19:13
ForgeAusit deosn't have grub so I'm goina need my feisty LiveCD .iso19:14
ForgeAus(well it has bits of grub but not in that partitions boot sector)19:14
firecrotchForgeAus: Have you tried dpkg-reconfigure -a ?19:14
twosouls82you can use VMWare to boot a existing Windows installation... but to boot an existing Linux.. I have never found a solution19:14
DunasHow do I get the latest AMD64 ATI drivers up and going for my computer?19:15
ubotuTo install the Ati/NVidia drivers for your video card, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto19:15
ForgeAusfirecrotch yes19:16
DunasOk, so it's obviously not the driver that's causing wine to not run Steam properly.19:16
firecrotchForgeAus:  What abotu with --force?19:16
ForgeAuswhat do you mean twosouls19:16
ForgeAusit works fine19:16
ForgeAusfirecrotch, wait till I have it booted :) its in the process now19:17
ForgeAuswow it did have grub in its boot sector, interesting!19:17
twosouls82ForgeAus: I must have misinterpreted something19:18
ForgeAusits not booting19:19
ForgeAustwosouls maybe because I'm using windows XP as my host OS?19:20
ForgeAusgets to the kubuntu splash screen (the one with the blu progress bar)19:20
twosouls82ForgeAus: so the not bootting install is a virtual install using VMWare hosted on XP?19:20

firecrotchWallgod: Follow the instructions here on how to set up the proper nvidia drivers: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto19:21
mefisto__Wallgod: good work19:21
ForgeAushehe twosouls the not booting one right now is the one thats already installed natively on my HDD (I tried booting it from inside vmware)19:22
Wallgodmefisto__: firecrotch: no no,, the credit is entirely to u guys19:22
ForgeAusI tried recovery mode seemed to start working but hangs on Begin: waiting for root file system19:23
mefisto__Wallgod: you came here and found the help you needed, and did the right things, so you fixed it really19:23
ForgeAuswait maybe because I have it mounted in ext2ifs19:23
twosouls82ForgeAus: so I understood that part right :) I said I never found a way to do that (the other way around booting an non virtual XP installation in VMWare is no problem)19:23
Wallgodmefisto__: u r so modest!19:23
twosouls82ForgeAus: that's a good reason for it not to work I guess19:24
ForgeAuserm I have to reboot for it to unmount :(19:25
ForgeAusmaybe later someday19:25
ForgeAusright now 2 tired I gotta sleep but thanx for the help anyway firecrotch :)19:26
twosouls82ForgeAus: isn't there a control panel applet being supplied with that fs driver?19:26
Wallgodfirecrotch: shud i use envy?19:26
ForgeAusyes twosouls19:26
twosouls82can't you unmount it there?19:26
firecrotchWallgod:  NO19:26
firecrotchWallgod: never!19:26
ForgeAusbut it tells me I have to reboot for it to work19:26
twosouls82:s tsss19:26
firecrotchForgeAus:  No problem :)19:26
twosouls82ForgeAus: good night19:26
Wallgodfirecrotch: oh ok... but ther is ths nvidia settings menu in the start menu19:26
Wallgodfirecrotch: so does that mean there are some drivers in her already?19:27
ForgeAusif that doesn't work later what I'll do is chroot to it from my feisty.iso19:27
ForgeAusand see what I can do from there19:27
firecrotchWallgod: whatever you did with envy is just going to mess things up even more, most likely19:27
twosouls82ForgeAus: what was the problem, did it give you an error?19:27
Wallgodfirecrotch: oh.. i ll follow the nstructions of this page u gave me the link to19:28

Wallgodfirecrotch: ya np20:00
ddamronwrong thread,20:00
ddamronsorry guys!20:00
BluesKajvigge_sWe, well, in xp you should be able to setup file sharing as you would normally with another pc.20:01
vigge_sWebut anyway, I seem to get erorr when typing sudo mount -t vboxsf [-o OPTIONS] Skrivbord /mnt/share in terminal20:01
vigge_sWevirtualbox has folder sharing but you need to mount it with sudo mount -t vboxsf [-o OPTIONS] Skrivbord /mnt/share but it gave me errors20:01
firecrotchWallgod:  You should be able to change /etc/X11/xorg.conf back to nvidia then, and it *should* work20:01
ToydWhere can i download the latest live cd?20:02
BluesKajvigge_sWe, so perhaps your question should be directed to the the ppl in the #windows chat20:02
firecrotchToyd: http://kubuntu.org20:02
Wallgodfirecrotch: i had done that in our previous step... thats how i came without the live CD in this session20:02
Wallgodfirecrotch: oh i get it20:03
Wallgodfirecrotch: change it back to nvidia20:03
firecrotchWallgod: actually, I have a better solution20:03
Wallgodfirecrotch: also, there are these few things in adept that show uninstalled, like nvidia driver settings and nvidia xconfig20:03
firecrotchWallgod: in konsole: dpkg-reconfigure xorg-nvidia20:04
Wallgodfirecrotch: ok20:04
firecrotchat least I think that's the proper command20:04
Wallgodfirecrotch: is there a keyboard shortcut to firing up konsole?20:05
tekteenWallgod: why not create one?20:05
tekteenor use katapult20:06
Wallgodfirecrotch: shud there be a gap after dpkg?20:06
ubotukatapult is the new application launcher for KDE, to be used with applications, bookmarks, and Amarok playlists. Once you have installed, hit Alt+f2 -> katapult, then hit Alt+Space, and type what you want.20:06
firecrotchwallgod: dpkg-reconfigure xorg-nvidia20:06
Wallgodtekteen: ok i ll try that.. thanks for the tip20:06
BluesKajhehe ''firing up a konsole"20:07
vigge_sWehow do I use samba/filesharing??????20:08
Wallgodfirecrotch: it says xorg-nvidia is not installed20:08
firecrotchWallgod: I figured as much... I have to find the right command20:08
=== hfsdo_ is now known as hfsdo
WallgodBluesKaj:  firing up... is that a windows term that makes it sound corny?20:08
Wallgodfirecrotch: ok cool20:09

Wallgodfirecrotch: ok20:09
LukeLM!samba vigge_sWe20:09
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about samba vigge_swe - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi20:09
BluesKajWallgod, reminds of the geeky audio guys i used to chat with , firing up their tube amps :)20:10
ubotuSamba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and http://help.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.20:10
Toydwhere can i find the kubuntu live-cd?20:11
Wallgodfirecrotch: ok it gave some installer kinda screenshots and finally said only one head can be configure now, remaining will have to be done later manually20:11
BluesKajvigge_sWe, you don't need samba for a virtual box sharing AFAIK20:12
Toydi cant find it on kubuntu.org20:12
Wallgodfirecrotch: and then it comes to an <ok> where it has stopped20:12
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about sambal - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi20:12
firecrotchwallgod: the <ok> is a button :)20:12
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about spicy - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi20:12
vigge_sWeyes I do. when you sent me to the windows support they told me to use samba...20:12
Toyd!live cd20:12
ubotuThe Ubuntu Desktop CD is a "LiveCD" which can be run without altering existing files on your harddrive. Especially useful for testing your hardware's compatibility, it also includes an install option.20:12
firecrotchuse the arrow keys to highlight it, and hit enter20:12
Toyd!download live cd20:12
Wallgodfirecrotch: but i cant click on it,. nor does hitting the enter key do anyting20:13
BluesKajvigge_sWe, they obviously misunderstood your question20:13
vigge_sWeand the ones at virtualbox support don't want to tell me how to use the vbox "folder sharing"20:13
vigge_sWeso I guess I better do the samba thing20:13
BluesKajtry samba then, vigge_sWe ...see what happens20:13
firecrotchWallgod:  I just want to make sure you're looking at what I think you are... it's a grey box on a blue background?20:13
Wallgodfirecrotch: yes it is... i selected and hit enter, now its asking for video cards bus identifier20:14
firecrotchIs there a default setting?20:14
Wallgodfirecrotch: i think there was one in the previous screen(with the ok button20:15
=== senane is now known as HostiL
Wallgodfirecrotch: and in this screen there is something like PCI:0:18s20:16
vigge_sWewhat should I have as servername and sharename?20:16
firecrotchWallgod:  The defaults for everything should be fine20:16
BluesKajWallgod, lspci | grep VGA20:16
Wallgodfirecrotch: it says incorrect format for bus20:17
WallgodBluesKaj: i ll try that20:17
WallgodBluesKaj: whtever that came after that command shud be used as the correct format?20:18
vigge_sWe"viggeswe@Kubuntu:~$ sudo mount -amount error: could not find target server. TCP name servername/sharename not foundNo ip address specified and hostname not found"20:18
vigge_sWewhat should I do now?20:18
WallgodBluesKaj: it says 00:12.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Unknown device 0531 (rev a                              2)20:19
WallgodBluesKaj: oops! shud i have used the pastebin?20:19
firecrotchWallgod: 00:12.0  is what you should use then20:19
Wallgodfirecrotch: ok cool20:19
vigge_sWewhat should I have as servername and sharename?20:20
Wallgodfirecrotch: its still says incorrect format20:21
BluesKajvigge_sWe, open konqueror type smb:/ in the addressbar, a file showing your samba shared folders should open20:21
firecrotchWallgod: Try  "PCI:12:0:0"20:22
Wallgodfirecrotch: i tried that20:22
Wallgodfirecrotch: not exactly that... i ll try it20:23
firecrotchWallgod: I have to admit, I know *nothing* about setting up nvidia graphics cards, just from what I've read20:23
Wallgodfirecrotch: woah! looks like it tookk it...20:23
Wallgodfirecrotch: u have some seruous good intuition20:24
firecrotchThat format *might* be wrong, if it is, you can just run dpkg-reconfigure xserver-zorg again20:24
firecrotchWhen you're done with the reconfigure, you'll have to restart X20:24
Wallgodfirecrotch: i hope this thing works! it now asks for how much memory to be used by the casrd20:25
firecrotchI don't know what to set for that20:25
tr_tr_trHi, someboy knows what files attach to bug in launchpad ? (dmesg, lspci20:25
Wallgodfirecrotch: it also says that it shud be left blank and shud be specified only if card lacks RAM20:25
Wallgodfirecrotch: or if xserver has problems identifying it20:26
firecrotchLeave it blank then, nvidia cards certainly have their own ram20:26

BluesKajrufus_, if you intend to dual boot with windows , put it on the first partiton , then the 2nd partition should be ext3 for kubuntu and a small 1-2 G linux swap partition should be the last one20:29
firecrotchalien_doggy:  https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-source-2.6.22/+bug/13055920:29
