Slartyou've got a domain? a ftp server?00:07
sampoois there a plug-in to handle some xine streams not in synaptic?00:07
Slartpmratpoison: you can force install if you really want to.. you had to do that with wine some time ago00:07
Slartpmratpoison: but it depends on if it's a stand alone application... or if it will be working with something else..00:08
illriginalSlart my company is a webhosting company, they've given us a free domain and I would like to start developing.. I was told to use FireFTP (built in firefox extension) that will let me upload my files to my domain.00:08
Slartillriginal: ok.. and this doesn't work?00:08
pmratpoisonSlart: on i386 you just install the debs and modify some post script file. It doesn't have any special printing front-end00:09
illriginalno FireFTP claims that I'm having Permission issues.00:09
pike_illriginal: any ftp client will work of course. the issue is at the server side00:09
pmratpoisonhow does one force the debs to install? is this undo-able?00:09

elii'm having some issues with my virtual terminals in gutsy.  it's hard to describe, but TTY1-6 have all their text pushed to the right so i can only see half the screen00:10
Slartpmratpoison: yes.. you can uninstall just like usual.. you install using dpkg -i --force-architecture yourdebfilehere.deb00:10
illriginalThe server side?.. It was workin on Windows. And if I use the Java applet (web based) FTP, it'll upload without a problem.00:10

_Oz_Hello, Ubuntu friends!00:16
as2SO my question : i want to do that what is described here:  dd if=/dev/hda of=hidden.img bs=7741440 skip=9932   With an hexadecimal editor (like hexedit for example), I looked for the beginning of a valid partition, identified by the string "IBM  7.0" or "IBM  7.1". I found several consecutive partitions, that I extracted into six distinct files :    dd if=hidden.img of=diags.img    bs=512 skip=26850 count=15063 dd if=hidden.img of=diags2.img  00:16
as2--------------------------------------00:16
as2EXPLAIN00:16
pike_illriginal: maybe do a quick sudo chown -R $USER:$USER $HOME00:16
as2-------------------------------------00:16
as2My algorithm to find the partition limits is rather simple. Starting from the beginning of the hidden.img area, I mount the file using a loop device, I obtain the partition size in 1k blocks with df, and I search the beginning of a new partition around the corresponding offset, in the image file. I iterate this algorithm with the new discovered partition, until the end of the hidden.img area is reached.00:16

pike_Joetheodd: you can install ubuntu then in addition xubuntu-desktop00:19
Dr_willisJoetheodd,  installing xubuntu-desktop  would give you the full set of xubuntu  features. :000:19
Joetheoddpike_, the problem is I don't want to see what would happen if I tried running gnome on my target box.00:19
Dr_willisI tend to install ubuntu, then xubuntu-desktop, then kubuntu-desktop00:19

Dr_willisPicachoo,  use the package manager to search. and look at that Linux game tome/Happy Penguin sites .00:20
_Oz_Excellent, dr_willis.  That was it.  Perfect!  They open in VLC now.  Thank you.00:20
Dr_willisPicachoo,  depends on what games you like.  Ive been playing Yoshi's Island lately. :)00:20
Joetheoddpike_, thanks, I'd just go the easy road except for I'm afraid this box won't be happy with me. Let's just say that dumpster diving could be an upgrade to it :P00:21
Dr_willis_Oz_,  yea. its a littel odd how you have to find a file you want to change the type for, to get to the filetype stuff..  if theres a nother way to find that selection/options. ive not found it yet.00:21
PicachooDr_willis i would like all famous ones. quality ones. can you name as many as you know?00:21

kitchePicachoo: umm yes it is well not the doom but doom variants yes00:23
_Oz_Dr_willis: yeah, there are some oddities in Ubuntu, like that one.  Overall, I really like it, though.00:23
_Oz_Logic suggests that you'd change file associations in one global place rather than within a single example of that file type.00:23
pike_illriginal: that was it you do not need any additional permission on the client box00:23
mark17is it possible to see the network statistics for a single IP on my server (every IP uses a different network card alias)?00:23
_Oz_But...  hey...  Linux isn't always logical. :) Part of the charm, I guess.00:23
JoetheoddI'm aware that this isn't an ubuntu issue but I'm sure you guys know. I'm using an ASUS P2L97 mobo, and it's got 3 RAM slots. If I have a stick of 64, 32, and 32, can I stick them all in?00:24

K4kprince_jammys, ok I did that but it still spits out errors and mouse still doesn't respond00:31
mjw-Jangari the flashplugin-nonfree package is fine00:31
sangprabonemilar: similar with if I use xchm or another chm viewer..00:31
AlysumDual monitor help needed please00:31
mjw-and is the "real" flash00:32
jdix123jangari - dunno if it was answerred, but hardy is avail as a live cd dl00:32
kitcheJangari: well flashplugin-nonfree is the actual flash from adobe00:32
Jangarii've never had flashplugin-nonfree working00:32
Dr_willisfrijolie,  in my case i have a filesystem at /dev/hdb1 - the whole disk. That i tell the installer to mount to /home00:32
prince_jammysK4k: the exact same errors?00:32
nemilarsangprabo: hrm, where'd you get the CHM ?00:32
sangprabonemilar: yes, it came from http://www.supermemo.com/english/helpdown.htm00:32
K4kyup00:32
mjw-jrod what does glxinfo | grep -i direct   return?00:32
sputnickanyone have a clue to repopulate my manpages-fr ? many people have more than 250 hint :  find //usr/share/man/fr* | wc -l00:32
Jangarijdix123: thanks, is there a link?00:32
PicachooDr_willis  the mirc beeps the system speaker on connect or message sounds. not the real sound. why so?  i hope if i install windows games. ill get the exact video graphic and sound quality in wine too?00:32
sampoois xine rubbish, and i should install something elso?00:32
Dr_willisfrijolie,  its allready setup for me - since its my old home. Its not unallocated.. In your case for the first time you may need to format it.00:32
nemilarsangprabo: I'll try it out over here00:32
Jangarifor me, only downlaoding a tarball from adobe and ./flash-installing has worked00:32
Dr_willisPicachoo,   the 'mirc' ?00:32
jdix123http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/00:32
jrodYES00:33
Jangariand i'm talking about more than ten different installations all on gutsy, so far00:33
prince_jammysK4k: paste /var/log/Xorg.0.log00:33
nickrudsampoo: xine is fine, vlc also. Some players seem to play some files better than others though00:33
PicachooDr_willis windows app i am using with wine. it gives a system speeker beep. not real sound00:33
sangprabonemilar: Thank you. I've downloaded smhelp.chm, the latest one (2006)00:33
illriginalpike_ it's askin me to login using username and password... how would I do this?00:33
pike_illriginal: just type your username hit enter then passowrd and enter00:33
Dr_willisPicachoo,  you do realize thers dozens of irc clients out OTHER then mirc. :) mIRC is rather lame in ways.. heh.00:33
illriginaloh :X00:33
Dr_willisPicachoo,  try the games and see.. is about all i cansay00:34
mjw-jrod: that's odd, youtube should work fine (unless you're on a quite old machine)...just make sure you don't have gnash installed... sudo apt-get remove gnash00:34
PicachooDr_willis yes. but i like mric. but the point was the why wine is not giving sound00:34
illriginalnah says, invalid command, pike_00:34
PicachooDr_willis can you give some sites where i can see rated /ranked free linux games?00:34
zzzaanyone able to install vimdiff in gutsy00:34
prince_jammysillriginal: are you doing ftp from command line?00:35
sampooxine seems to be default on mozilla, can i cahnge i to VLC?00:35
zzzavimdiff seems to have gone missing00:35
kitchesampoo: if you install the vlc-plugin you can00:35
sampoothankx00:35
illriginalprince_jammys, yes... unfortunately even if I can connect via Terminal... I wouldn't know what the heck to do.00:35
prince_jammysillriginal: if so try --->  user your_user_name00:35
jrodgnash removed... i'll load the actual adobe one and let u know what i come up with00:36
pike_illriginal: type 'bye' then enter then ftp servername  you will be prompted for a username then a password00:36
MushroomsI have a question regarding the structure of linux. In windows, when you install new programs, typically it gets dumped in 'program files'. Is there an equivalent of this in Ubuntu?00:36
zzzasudo apt-get install vimdiff "E: Couldn't find package vimdiff"00:36
Jangarijrod,00:36
mjw-jrod: apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree will fetch the correct adobe version for you00:36
Jangaritry at first testing youtube having uninstalled gnash, better scientific method that way00:36
Mushroomsjrod: I tried going to Youtube the other day, and firefox hung on me hardcore00:37
siriusnovaanyone able to access an iTunes shared library in linux yet?00:37
prince_jammysMushrooms: no, they dont go all in one place (and in windows they don't either, not exactly)00:37
mike16hi all i just install phpmyadmin, but i dont remeber setting a password, and its asking for one, is their a defualt, or can someone tell my how to set the mysql passowrd thanks00:37
nemilarsangprabo: it looks like they're using some IE hooks... I don't know if you'll be able to get it to work out-of-the-box in linux00:37
mjw-siriusnova afaik it's not possible to connect third party clients to iTunes 7.x shares00:37
Jangarieasy, siriusnova, so easy that i wouldn't be able to recount how to do it00:37
siriusnovamjw - damn :(00:37
pike_Mushrooms: everything shares directories youll notice if you type 'which gedit' it gives a generic bin path executables are in bin dirs libs in lib dirs generally00:38
Picachooi have just uninstalled many apps but still i experience slow speed. (speed was good at fresh kubuntu install though).  why so?00:38
Jangarimjw-: seriously?00:38
nemilarmike16: http://www.netadmintools.com/art90.html00:38
illriginal-.- claims that login failed. Yet I can connect with fireftp without a problem00:38
tumbleweed05whats up people?00:38
pike_Mushrooms: er.. which nano00:38
sangprabonemilar: is ther any other way to open it? If open it using Windows, could it opened in Linux after?00:38
prince_jammysMushrooms: a package will place its executables in /usr/share/bin, its documentation in /usr/share/doc, its libraries in /usr/share/lib00:38
mjw-Jangari last i checked, admittedly a few months back, you could only access itunes 6 or older shares00:38
mike16thanks nemilar i will bookmark thatn ow00:38
Jangaridoesn't an itunes library just operate as an ntfs file system as per normal windows file system?00:38
nemilarsangprabo: I doubt it... but you can get it to work in Wine, I'd bet00:38
sampooinstalled all the vlc plugins, xine still the default player for some streams?00:38
prince_jammysMushrooms: so yes in that typically everything is within different folders of /usr00:38
sampoohow can i change that00:39
sampoo?00:39
K4kprince_jammys, http://pastebin.ca/90493400:39
sangprabonemilar: okay. I will try it. Thank you very much of your kind, nemilar :)00:39
Mushroomsprince_jammys: I see. In the "pidgin.im" website there are some instructions to close conversation windows using the Esc key, but it tells me to locate the .purple library first. I'm guessing that because it starts with a '.' the folder will be invisiable00:39
K4kprince_jammys, http://pastebin.ca/90453400:39
K4ksorry00:39
nemilarsangprabo: np.. hope it works for you00:39
mjw-Jangari no - it's DAAP based. nothing to do with ntfs.00:39
sampoouninstall xine?00:39
Mushroomsprince_jammys: sorry that should have been .purple directory00:39
prince_jammysMushrooms: if it's a hidden file, it's likely to be a personal configuration directory located in your home folder00:40
quitttdo you know a programme which can read the things for you?00:40
Jangarimjw-: whoa, you're not talking just about a simple itunes library on any old machine, are you?00:40
prince_jammysK4k: tell the other person who was helping you too00:40
pike_!festival | quittt00:40
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about festival - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi00:40
Jangariman, i'm glad i weaned myself off itunes altogether00:40
Mushroomsprince_jammys: I see, I should be able to see all of those in the terminal then00:40
mjw-Jangari I'm talking about the "sharing" option that is present in itunes.00:40
Jangarioh, right00:40
quitttpike_, festival? there is an app with that name?00:40
pike_quittt: yes or ktalk00:40
illriginalok pike_ i finally logged in... now what should I do?...00:40
prince_jammysMushrooms: you can see them in a gui also00:40
K4knemilar http://pastebin.ca/90453400:41
pike_illriginal: what files do you have in that dir? what extensions?00:41
Jangariscrew that, just mount the whole system in ubuntu and nav to it, and add the library to 'my places' or something00:41
Perrocomo hago00:41
prince_jammysMushrooms: enable "show hidden files" or do Ctrl-H in nautilus if you use gnome00:41
illriginalindex.html is in my website folder00:41
mrMisterHi, I just updated ubuntu and now flas doesn't work. is this a common problem or am I the ony sufferer?00:41

sampoonow i remember where i installed xine and why, when i wanted to play a BBC stream...is there a better solution/streamer?00:41

Jangariwell, rhythmbox on my ubuntu installation and windows media player on my xp pro installation working from the same media libraries works sweet00:41
tumbleweed05ok people. i installed ubuntu 7.10 and just the other day my computer won't start up.00:42
tumbleweed05any reason?00:42
illriginalsweet..00:42
illriginalit uploaded.00:42
tumbleweed05it was working great.00:42
K4kmrMister, IIRC it's still broken last I saw00:42
Jangaritumbleweed05: what does it do?00:42
pike_illriginal: html is text so its fine if you wanted to upload a binary file like a zip youd type binary first then mput *.zip00:42
tumbleweed05doesn't even load the bios.00:42
pike_illriginal: looks like a crappy client00:42
jrodremoving gnash and loading the adobe player worked perfectly00:42
jrodthanks for the help00:42
illriginalFireftp?...00:42
tumbleweed05just flashes the caps, num, and scroll lock light and thats it.00:42
tumbleweed05just sits there.00:42
kitchetuna: umm if your computer doesn't even power on at all then it's hardware issue00:42
pike_illriginal: yes. use nautilus or gftp00:42
Mushroomsprince_jammys: ah yep i see it now thanks :) I was going to go ls -a and then locating it from there00:42
Jangaridoesn't show anything on the monitor at all, tumbleweed05?00:43
tumbleweed05nope.00:43
kitchetumbleweed05: soudns liek a hardware issue00:43

tumbleweed05dang it.00:43
tumbleweed05i like it might be the hard drive. but i'm not sure.00:43
Jangaridoes a liveCD work, tumbleweed05?00:43
pike_illriginal: gluck00:43
tumbleweed05i can't even hear it try to load up the hd.00:43
tumbleweed05jangari: i haven't tried yet.00:43
prince_jammysMushrooms: windows has hidden files so that you can't mess with the system, linux has hidden files purely for convenience (all those config files get in the way)00:43
Jangarihow did you install in the first place?00:43
tumbleweed05from the livecd.00:44
Dr_willisIve found so many weird hidden things under windows.. its.. scary. Empty folders that i cant delete.. but are 'system critical' and so forth. :)00:44
Jangarioh, just saw you said it doesn't even load the bios00:44
tumbleweed05lol.00:44
blubb0rdoes anyone know a good media player without gui?00:44
haxalityDr_willis, they probably contain OS files that are hidden by windows..00:44
haxalityblubb0r, video or audio?00:44
K4kyea, there is a way to show "system files" that are different from just normal hidden files00:45
kitcheblubb0r: mplayer00:45
blubb0raudio..00:45
Jangaritumbleweed05: old machine, or what?00:45
Siph0nhey...  is it possible to hide the network password from the /etc/network/interfaces file? googling for "hide key from /etc/network/interfaces" didn't work out too well...00:45
tumbleweed05not really.00:45
Jangarii.e., has it ever worked?00:45
tumbleweed05sony vaio vgn-n230n00:45
Dr_willishaxality,  it was totally empty. :)  i checked and was able to remove it under linux.   But its one of the mysteries of windows. Heh00:45
tumbleweed05it came with vista.00:45
tumbleweed05got pissed at it. and installed ubuntu.00:46
tumbleweed05i'm not a newb at linux. but it's been a few years.00:46
tumbleweed05install went fine.00:46
K4knemilar and prince_jammys either of you got any ideas on that log file?00:46
tumbleweed05used it for about a week when it happened.00:46
pike_tumbleweed05: i think youll be pleasantly suprised. just dont give up alot to learn00:46
Dr_williswell bbl00:46
danbhfive!info mpc123 | blubb0r maybe this will satisfy you, I just found it randomly00:46

tumbleweed05whats that?00:47
quittthow do I use festival?00:47
tumbleweed05for ubuntu?00:47
siriusnovaok so now that I know i can't access an iTunes shared library00:47
tumbleweed05moubny.00:47
Jangariif the bios isn't loading then no matter how you install, it won't boot, right?00:47
Lunar_Lamp!best00:47
ubotuUsually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, join #ubuntu-bots and ask there.00:47
sampooyes, gutsy gibbon00:47
tumbleweed05yes.00:47
moumnyyes tumbleweed0500:47
siriusnovais there any way for me to import an itunes xml file in Linux00:48
Jangariin fact, without bios it shouldn't even boot the cd00:48
siriusnovavia samba00:48
tumbleweed05transmission for bittorrent00:48
pike_quittt: /join #ubuntu-offtopic maybe a number of people there use it i have not00:48
tumbleweed05true.00:48
Jangariso that should be a good test, tumbleweed0500:48
tumbleweed05but i'm gonna give it a shot. if it's the hard drive i'm gonna be pissed.00:48
Jangariyeah, do it00:48
quitttit is not offtopic, since it is part of Ubuntu00:48
K4kprince_jammys, I just noticed this line on the second to last line "(II) Configured Mouse: ps2EnableDataReporting: succeeded" so the mouse should work?00:49
kitchetumbleweed05: it's probably more then the hard drive00:49
Jangariwell, if it's the hard drive, it's more easily replaceable than the motherboard00:49
tumbleweed05what else do you think?00:49
Jangarimb00:49
tumbleweed05ya. if it's the motherboard then i might as well get a new comp.00:49
tumbleweed05macbook prolly.00:49
tumbleweed05and dual boot ubuntu on that also :)00:49
prince_jammysK4k: i guess, there's a couple of errors i saw -- one involving DRI .  But the .Xauth business is a problem00:49
pike_quittt: i know its ontoppic i just dont know the answer and a few in there use it :)00:50

Helvascakitche: Im looking for where the  list of mirrors is - ALL the possible servers00:54
K4kprince_jammys, still nothing, but I am getting the feeling that it's my vm that's messing up, not my install...I'll try this on actual hardware tonight maybe that will work00:54
kitcheHelvasca: it's on the ubuntu website I believe00:54
K4kHelvasca, there are a bunch in there that are commented out, but I recommend googling for sources.list generator and you will find what you're looking00:55
prince_jammysK4k : sorry, though it wont affect anything.... to change it back:   sudo chmod 600 .Xauthority   <-- permissions were correct, just checked00:55

harveydeven if I correct it01:05
rxsaits no problem to mount the partition via a little widget but i want my vfat partition to mount imideatily after start-up01:05

rxsaprince_jammys: no i dont01:16
sangprabonemilar: I've downloaded it, and it works! Thank you very much... :)01:16

prince_jammysrxsa: echo $UID01:19
danbhfivefrijolie: are you running gutsy right now?01:19

danbhfivefrijolie: do you know how to partition, at least in general?01:19
rxsaprince_jammys: it says "1000"01:19
tannerwhat do i have to do for changes to /etc/fstab to take effect01:20
prince_jammysrxsa ok paste the following line into your fstab01:20
danbhfivetanner: reboot, or sudo mount -a01:20
rxsaprince_jammys: kay01:20
prince_jammysrxsa: /dev/hda2       /media/STORE      vfat    uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=000     0       001:20
umdoistresoh, the problem is gone ! thank you very much !01:20
frijoliedanbhfive: yeah, I know that I want to have 10GB for / (root), 2GB for /swap, and the rest of the HDD for /home01:20
DtortotI keep trying to install ubuntu as dual boot I have the partitions ready and all and the somewhere around 50% of the installation I get a message that says that I am missing one file and that the installation had to be stopped, I dunno what file that is but I have tried with 3 different dls of Ubuntu from 3 different mirrors in North America and they all failed01:21
rxsaprince_jammys: i have to retype it, right?! XD okay, geez :)01:21
PhotocopyHow can I remove icons from my desktop please?01:21
prince_jammysrxsa: and save: make sure there is one BLANK line at the end of the file, by hitting enter01:21
Jangarifrijolie: make it 20 for root, depending on the overall size of your hdd01:21
danbhfivefrijolie: then during the setup, just do that.  You have to set the mount points, so you will have to set the 10gb as / and just set the larger one as /home01:21
prince_jammysrxsa: cut and paste. don't retype01:21
frijolieJangari: 20GB for / ?01:21
Jangarii reckon01:21
Photocopyfrijolie: To be safe, 20g sounds right01:22
Jangarii have 20 each overall for entire ubuntu and xp pro, the rest is data, 120GB01:22
danbhfivefrijolie: the swap just needs to be partitioned as swap, no need to set a mount point for that01:22
adambOk I have a problem, I cant open more then 2 firefox browsers, it just hangs when i open up the 3rd one. Anyone have an idea on this issue?01:22
Dtortotany idea which file I'm missing01:22
_Oz_dtortot: I'd expect an error on the disc01:22
tannerdanbhfive: what do i have to add to fstab so that a device mounts rw and what not? (this is an external eSATA drive)01:22
rxsaprince_jammys: yeah, its a textfile, not the terminal, though! (D'OH!)01:22
Photocopy=(01:22
frijoliedanbhfive: last time I did it, afterwards by right-clicking on the drive in nautilus and choosing properties it didn't display the correct size01:22
K4kprince_jammys, hey I'm back and on real hardware lol01:22
Jangarii mean, i've only used a small portion of that on ubuntu, but imagine if you ran out of space on / to install some new apps?01:22
DtortotOz: I have tried 3 different discs burned at different speeds and nothing01:22
frijoliedanbhfive: for my /home directory..it only showed something like 4GB when it should have been 120GB01:22
prince_jammysrxsa: select it, paste it, make sure there is one blank line at the bottom of the file and save it01:23
silvioi01:23
_Oz_dtortot: it's gotta be a disc problem01:23
_Oz_dtortot: all by the same burner?01:23
_Oz_it's either the drive or the disc01:23
frijoliePhotocopy: 20GB is a lot...but I do have a 200GB HDD01:23
danbhfivefrijolie: well, that's clearly wrong, do you already have ubuntu installed?  if there is a last time?01:23
adambOk I have a problem, I cant open more then 2 firefox browsers, it just hangs when i open up the 3rd one. Anyone have an idea on this issue?01:23

danbhfivetanner: im sorry, I don't really know01:23
Dtortotbut I have burned lots of things with both and they all work fine01:23
prince_jammysrxsa try this01:23
frijoliedanbhfive: no it's not installed yet...I'm at the part where I partition the drive now...01:23
Jangaridamn, 200GB is fine, opt for a larger / than just 10GB01:23
Photocopyfrijolie: Then again, im a retard with a 7g swap on a 80g drive... rofl01:24
rxsaprince_jammys: huh?01:24
prince_jammysrxsa actually yeah reboot, since thats what you want to test, sorry01:24
frijoliePhotocopy: we'll comprimise and I'll say 15GB for root01:24
Photocopyfrijolie: Better safe than sorry?01:24
danbhfivefrijolie: well, I personally have no idea why that would happen, you should be able to just do it during the install01:24
rxsaprince_jammys: yeah thx01:24

squishyhey im having some problems playing sound in streaming videos01:34
PhotocopyK4k: Thanks01:34
NigelS_Gary_inNYC: if you want to - the point here is that the unix model of a filesystem differs from the model that windows inherited from cp/m - that is to say that by having all files exist in essentially one large namespace we don't need to care about which bit of ferro-magnetic material it is stored on. All programs you install will place files in /usr/bin /tmp /etc so you do need to think about the greatest extent that they will take up01:35
squishyok some videos have perfect sound its just others that dont, any ideas??01:35
NigelS_Gary_inNYC: having said that many of the items that take up the most space on windows are games and many linux users will install those into their home dir - i.e. they are not provided as packages which will use the standard layout of a linux system01:35

tannerprince_jammys: perhaps another option, xfs does not understand the umask option01:43
prince_jammystanner: says bad line?01:43
frijoliedanbhfive: so partition it to /home or just leave it as free space? Sorry I don't totally understand UNIX filesystem yet01:43
danbhfivefrijolie: yep, that would do it, partitioning is the one thing that an OS can't handle itself, it must be done during the install phase01:43
tannerprince_jammys: XFS: unknown mount option [umask].01:44
nix_how do i apply a theme in emerald? anyone?01:44
danbhfivefrijolie: partition it as ext301:44
NigelS_Cyanide1: the same place you can find everything else, in the repository - just use add/remove apps or synaptic to locate cd burning software and particular software01:44
danbhfivefrijolie: then, set the mount point, to /home01:44
prince_jammystanner mmm never have done it with xfs01:44
logankoesterHow can I determine what process has the soundcard locked?01:44

tannerprince_jammys: any other solutions?01:45
seancould somebody tell me what the ubuntu symbols beside certain things in the synaptic package manager mean please???01:45

tuxhi, i have problam about totem http://dpaste.com/3525101:45
nix_mjw: i have emerald, but when i click on a theme it dont apply?? wtf?01:45
prince_jammystanner first  ---> echo $UID in a terminal and see if you are user 100001:45
Veeger1logankoester: The sound link for troubleshooting covers getting multiple programs using the sound card use      /msg ubotu sound01:46
NigelS_sean: that they're ubuntu supported packages, part of the main ubuntu system as opposed to the community maintained ones01:46
mjw-nix_ it should be installed with the rest of compiz automatically01:46
tannerprince_jammys: now only root can mount it01:46
logankoesterthanks Veeger101:46
Veeger1np01:46
danbhfivefrijolie: it might be that you actually do it all in one step, I don't remember.  I think you set it up to partition, then right click, and set the mount point somewhere01:46

nemobut, I was wondering. since the plugin dir has changed in ff 3.0 - do I just go ahead and copy the contents of /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox to the new dir, symlinks and all?01:47

nemoor is there a more-correct method?01:47
frijoliedanbhfive: yeah, I know how to physically partition the drive using the installer. I just wasn't sure which was the best configuration.01:47
NigelS_tanner: as root just give ownership of the drive to your user01:47
Drk_Guynemo, there is a deb for 3.0b01:47

MasterMelis there a player for ubuntu wich plays winamp playlists?02:00
K4kOdd-rationale, is there a way to filter to see just what's install in synaptic? I couldn't find it02:00
MushroomsQuestion:"Also, if you have already added lines to your XFree86/Xorg configuration file (XF86Config/XF86Config-4 or xorg.conf), you should comment them out and restart X. Since we'll be stepping through the entire process, we need X to ignore the tablet until we're ready. Otherwise, X will just get in the way." when it says "X" in this case, what does it refer to?02:00
warriorforgodadrian: did that fix the bottom bar?02:00
Cyr4xmaybe i should do a new partition with the same file system without formatting it?02:00

adrianno it works fine02:06
adriani was albe to move it no problem02:06
prince_jammysMushrooms: right02:06

Veeger1Jangari: great, sorry but I am not on my regular computer and didnt have my notes handy02:08

neopsycheHi.. i installed usenext.deb.. but.. apparently it is spyware? how will this effect me on linux / ubuntu?02:21
eek_i'd like to know how to change a .pfd to .odt  anybody know how?02:21
Cyr4xso?02:21
K4kJangari, isn't it in file somewhere on the drive?02:21
neopsychethey said that there is spyware in accounts.exe.. does this still affect me on ubuntu since i installed it?02:22
Veeger1Thedjatclubrock: I dont know how much help I can be with an aborted debian install...on a dual boot...    recovery mode is usually accessed from the grub menu02:22
Jangaripossibly,02:22
neopsycheits not avirus. apparently just spyware02:22
elm1anybody have any ideas?02:22
mattgrieserI deleted a snippits example entitled "date" that pasted the current date. Anyone have the text of that file?02:22
Veeger1neopsyche: You installed it under wine?02:22
kcyniceJangmunho: and what's the difference between dpkg -r and  apt-get remove?02:22
ThedjatclubrockVeeger1: GNOME will work in failsafe02:22
Jangarisnippets for what, mattgrieser?02:23
neopsycheVeergerl.. no installed using .deb02:23
mattgriesersnippits is a text replacer02:23
Veeger1Thedjatclubrock: I would not know where to begin to untangle that. sorry02:23
Jonyjoin/ suse02:23
ogrewhat is the directory that contains the  init directories? is it /etc ?????02:23
ThedjatclubrockVeeger1: Recovery seems to be working, Thanks :)02:23
Veeger1neopsyche: accounts.exe was in a deb?02:23
JangariJony: /join*02:23
Jonyum02:24
Jonyright02:24
Jonysory bout that02:24
Cyr4xhttp://rafb.net/p/SBAfaM13.html02:24
Jonystill, i can't get in02:24
neopsycheveegerl.. yup02:24
Veeger1Thedjatclubrock: Sorry I dont have any good answers for that02:24
JangMunhokcynice: dpkg will just operate one single package, but apt-get will deal with the dependence02:24
Cyr4xmy sudo fscp -l /dev/hda result02:24
Starnestommyogre: /etc and /etc/init.d/, as well as /etc/rc(0-6).d and /etc/rcS.d/02:24
Jonywho do you do it exactly?02:24
elm1hello, im having a problem with browsing in firefox, i can onli go to sites via IP, any1 have any solutions?02:24
Rolovery happy with ubuntu, only one problem: it can't read some small files from a DVD burned in win xp. win xp reads them with no problems (with the same computer). Path must be 128 characters. Other files are read normally. Any suggestion?02:24
Cyr4xthere is ff id and System BBT02:25
mattgrieserJangari it's snippits, not snippets. It is a text replacer02:25
Veeger1neopsyche: I assume it was not from our repos?  But an exe in a Deb with a virus/spyware.. I need more info02:25
kcynicei have run apt-get remove scim*,but when i press Ctrl+space, scim remainly can launch02:25
Cyr4xi don't know what's this02:25
Jangarii got that the first time mattgrieser, my silence was code for 'sorry, as i have no idea what snippits is, i can't help', but you might want to try learning some regular expressions02:25
hikenbootgreetings all anyone know what package provides ld.so.nohwcap ?02:25
prince_jammyskcynice: apt-get didn't give any errors?02:26
Veeger1Thedjatclubrock: From cli the first thing I would check is sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg  if that helps at all02:26
Cyr4x.02:26
JangMunhokcynice: try sudo apt-get --purge remove scim, and log off when the process finish.02:26
kcyniceprince_jammys: no.02:26
neopsycheVeegerl.. http://www.usenext.de/usenextde/download/usenext.deb02:26
Jangarianyone know how nautilus can show more that the default columns in list view? I want audio properties02:26
kcyniceyou mean,i should restart my computer?02:26
mattgrieserThanks Jangari. I just wanted to make sure! I'm oh so new...02:27
elm1hello can sum1 help me please?02:27
prince_jammysmattgrieser: this "date" file is just a sample that came with the program?02:27
Jangariprobably best to refrain from rm'ing sh|t then, mattgrieser02:27
JangMunhokcynice: log off, not restart. Ctrl+Alt+backspace will do the job02:27
mattgrieserprince: yes it is02:27
Jangarior, reinstall snippits02:27
kcyniceok02:27
prince_jammysmattgrieser: did you try reinstalling the program so you get the file back?02:28
ogredoes gutsy come with a C compiler? if not, what is a good one?02:28
Starnestommyogre: GCC is installed with the build-essential package02:28
mattgrieserJangari I think i should have used cp instead of mv when I moved the sample02:28
prince_jammysmattgrieser: why not reinstall?02:29
Jangarioh, if you only used mv, it should still be somewhere02:29
mattgrieserprince: I have not tried that. I'm afraid the muchas configuration it took to get it working will be lost02:29
CyanideDthe download is fine02:29
CyanideDso its the cd right02:29
ogreStarnestommy:  2 for 2 thanks alot02:29
=== Jannita is now known as Johanna
prince_jammysmattgrieser: if you're concerned about that, you could try copying the configuration files (though i don't think reinstalling would overwrite them)02:30
ThedjatclubrockVeeger1: What would sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg do02:30
mattgrieserJangair: I used mv to get it to my actual folder and out of the examples folder, then I needed to change it and rm it, thinking it was still in /examples02:30
eek_how would i open a pdf so i can type over it in linux??02:30
prince_jammysmattgrieser: check this --> ls -al | grep snippits02:30
CyanideDdoes anyone in here use k3b to burn Iso02:31
JangariCyanideD: how about opening the update manager? it should (don't really know) offer to upgrade your whole system to 7.1002:31
mannytuno02:31
prince_jammysmattgrieser: or just ls -al if you want to spot it yourself02:31
CyanideDchecking now02:31
mattgrieserprince_jammys: ok, i see it... now what02:32
kcyniceok,my fcitx works well now. Thanks very much.all02:32
prince_jammysmattgrieser: also .... did you just move the date file but don't know where it is?02:32
CyanideDnope02:32
Jangarior, mattgrieser, if you want to be thorough, try ls -laR / | grep snippits02:32
brazilian812can anyone help me solve a "cannot initialize HAL" error?02:32
prince_jammysmattgrieser: is there a file or folder DOTsnippits02:32
Jangarioh, forget that, you found it02:32
mattgrieserprince_jammys: no, I said --> rm ~/.snippits/date02:32
Jangariwell then, 'oops'02:33
CyanideDi get no option to upgrade02:33
c01100011old debiant user, I always default to using apt, not very antiquated with synaptic. Stumbled upon the add/remove programs button in the menu. Can someone tell me about it? (where does it aggregate it's lists and ratings from)02:33
prince_jammysmattgrieser: ok , so it's gone.   copy that configuration file somewhere, like cp .snippits snippitsbackup02:33
neopsycheVeegerl.. did you get the link?02:33
Veeger1Thedjatclubrock: It would reset some basic video settings that might be causing a problem, but other than that No decent ideas02:33
prince_jammysmattgrieser: don't put a dot in front of the backup , and it wont be a hidden file02:34
Mushroomswell i'm gonna be off for now, thanks for all of your help today prince_jammys, Veeger1 and Jangari02:34
mattgrieserIt's not a crucial file or anything, I just couldn't find the contents online anywhere I checked02:34
Jangarican't help you CyanideD, its either the disk or your cdrom02:34
prince_jammysMushrooms: bye02:34
Veeger1neopsyche: YEs I did, but I dont care to install the deb to try and help you02:34
neopsycheok02:34
prince_jammysmattgrieser: you may get an error if its a folder and not a file... if you do, replace cp with cp -r02:34
brazilian812can anyone help? i get a "failed to initialize hal" error when logging in...02:34
CyanideDok then what program do you use to burn isos02:34
Jangaribut one last resort, CyanideD, is go into the bios when you restart the machine and make sure that the cdrom is the first startup device02:34
Veeger1neopsyche: I dont know why they would have a *.exe inside a deb.. and how did you scan it for virii?02:35

CyanideDtry02:59
jribnorty: the file needs to get sourced.  Restart your terminal02:59

LjLVaranger, well, *our* suggestion (no, call it a strong recommendation) is to keep using the ubuntu-provided drivers. do you know for sure that you've got anything to gain from the "latest" drivers? from what i've heard, there's more added bugs than benefits. and in any case, if you do that, be prepared to have a text-mode only system every time there is a kernel update03:12

RootyRootRootW00prince_jammys: I installed rutebook. Am opening it now04:50

prince_jammysVanGuard: both are desktop environments that sit on top of everything else in the system, so you can actually install either one.  they are not tied to the system so you can uninstall one and replace with another ... differences are : appearance (different looking buttons/menus and so on) and features (they way you set up things, and what's available in the default programs)06:37

starkedDoes anyone here think they can help me get gnome-do running? I had it installed, but then I uninstalled it and tried to compile from source, which didn't work, but now whenever I try to install and run it, it fails with an error about gtk-sharp.  Also, I still can't compile it. Any ideas?06:39
prince_jammysVanGuard: you can have both installed in your box and that's ok.  Each comes with it's own set of preferred apps, but theyre not mandatory..  Example: gedit is the default gnome text editor, kate is the kde text editor ,,,,, but if you want, you can run kate in gnome,   its just that kde apps work optimally in KDE and the same goes for gnome..06:39
n2diySoylent: ok, try the #bash channel, that is a bash script.06:39

lobo_nzMy video freezes up after a few minutes of playing, happened ever since gutsy upgrade, I re-installed but still freezes any ideas how to fix it?07:01
Rael-can someone tell me how to fix it so that when I login as root I keep the same setttings and preferences as my other login07:01
jordanFilled-Void, http://kubuntu.com/ link near the top of the page07:01
jordanRael-, Do not log in as root. Period07:02
neoperformence is very good    except for programs taking longer to start07:02

speeddemon8803comrademirror..your home directory on a different partition would benefit by making it so where if you accidentally "wipe" your main partition..all of your stuff isnt totally gone for your user account.07:12
mkquistComradeMirror`: thats not alot of space, youll likely run out installing programs...  If you trying to fit windows and linux on one 10gig drive, if thats what you mean07:12

credibletrance_techau: is the Window Decoration plugin enabled?07:13
trance_techauwithout it load i dont have any menu's. exit minimise etc07:13

Rael-thanks. I tried that but it did not solve the problem...I'm trying to make a link on the desktop to the windows drive that I mounted. it will let me make links to the other foders but not that07:13
zcat[1]ComradeMirror`: I wouldn't split root and home if you're trying to do a small install, you'll just end up with one or the other being too small, while you still have space on the other..07:13
ComradeMirror`okay07:13
mkquistComradeMirror`: u can put ur home on another part to save if u need to reinstall i guess07:13
ComradeMirror`so 8gbs linux 1 swap 1 home07:13
RedHeron4gb Linux, 4gb Windows07:13
ComradeMirror`redheron07:13

neoi think its ok       thnks vry vry much               i was actually thinking to reinstall the system07:14
RedHeron1 drive Lin, 1 drive Wintendo?07:14
mkquistComradeMirror`: id just use a 1 gig swap and the rest for linux, keeps it simple (its not the size of ur drives, its how u use em anyway =p)07:14
ComradeMirror`so I have 16-20gbs at my disposal07:14
meekolopeComrade, hey thats not bad i only have 60 gigs total from two drives :P07:15
ComradeMirror`ah07:15
zcat[1]ComradeMirror`: 9G root, 1G swap.. forget splitting off home, you can easily backup and restore home to the windows partition with ntfs-3g or ext2 drivers in windows if you need to reinstall07:15
ph0rensicRedHeron: Have you tried clonezilla or bacula??07:15
neothnks nando07:15

zcat[1]RedHeron: for keeping home, copy to windows.. for 'backing up' -- something on the same drive is NOT a backup!07:16
RedHeronComradeMirror`: What do you plan to use Linux for?07:16
spazand i tried to boot07:16
ComradeMirror`school work and media07:16
spazthen it freezes at "Setting system clock"07:16
mkquistComradeMirror`: linux will creat a home for u if u dont mount it somewhere else07:16
ComradeMirror`Windows for gaming07:16
ComradeMirror`and such07:16
spazany ideas?07:16
ComradeMirror`mount it somewhere else?07:16
RedHeronzcat[1]: But having a separate /home partition if you fubar Linux = much, much lower chances of losing data.07:17
fx__Lost is a shitty show.  Its season 6 and theyre still on a fucking island..  I think a better story would be, they live in the jungle for like 2 seasons, and during that time they turn into savage killers from living like guerillas in the jungle..  So then they finally get rescued, but when they go back to civilized life theyre all traumatized from life in the jungle and having to eat eachothers guts.   And now, they cannot cope with so07:17
* ComradeMirror` flails arms07:17
spazgood to know.07:17
Rael-its only season 407:17
ComradeMirror`Hmmm07:17
mkquistfx__: not, like off-topic or anything... =\07:17
fx__but yes or no?07:17
ComradeMirror`can I use my home on a different drive then linux07:17
RedHeronComradeMirror`: Yes.07:17
mkquistComradeMirror`: yes07:17
zcat[1]RedHeron: I wouldn't think so.. how are you going to foobar linux? rm -rf? /home is gone anyhow...07:17
ComradeMirror`okay then07:17
* spaz screams at his hard disk07:17

stdin!ot | fx__07:17
ubotufx__: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, #ubuntu+1 supports the development version of Ubuntu and #ubuntu-offtopic is for random chatter. Welcome!07:17
fx__sorry all07:18
RedHeronzcat[1]: I've done it just with software installs.07:18
spazx_x07:18
mkquistspaz: whats up?07:18
RedHeronfx__: That has what, exactly, to do with Ubuntu?07:18
ComradeMirror`so Im going to be doing 8gbs for my linx 1 for swap 1 /home07:18
RedHeronComradeMirror`: That makes sense.07:18
ComradeMirror`swap and home can be on seperate drive then linux too yes?07:18
spazmkquist, i go to boot ubuntu, then it freezes at "setting system clock"07:18
Rael-I think I need to change the permissions on the /mnt/windows folder . but that option is greyed out07:18
fx__RedHeron: sorry i am in OT now07:18
RedHeronComradeMirror`: Yes.07:18
jordanComradeMirror`, Yes07:18
ComradeMirror`okay then Im going to try this07:18
mkquistComradeMirror`: that would work fine if u wish07:18
ComradeMirror`x.x07:18
zcat[1]RedHeron: no matter how much you mess it up, you can still get the files off by booting into a rescue disk, or booting into windows and reading the partiton with ext2 drivers07:18
spazmkquist, relatively early in the boot process07:18
ComradeMirror`would a home of 1gb really help me?07:18
* spaz hugs ComradeMirror` 07:18
mkquistspaz: tried hitting escape?07:18
ComradeMirror`I'd have to know how to use home wouldn't i?07:18
RedHeronzcat[1]: I didn't have any way to recover the partition.07:19
ComradeMirror`I'll come back later to learn that if I don't figure out how07:19
spazmkquist, the keyboard locks up...07:19
spazso that didn't really help :p07:19
RedHeronzcat[1]: As in: the /home partition saved my butt.07:19
mkquistspaz: ewww,,, bootlive cd and check the logs..07:19
mkquistspaz: see what its 'thinking'07:19
Lieuwehello07:19
RedHeronComradeMirror`: /home is where the user accounts are located... it's where YOUR files are stored.07:19
jordanComradeMirror`, /home is where your documents / settings are most likely to be stored, if 1 GIG is enough for your documents then it's fine, if not ... :)07:19
spazmkquist, i turned off the bootsplash and quiet optoins07:19
ComradeMirror`ah07:19
spazlive CD does it fine07:19
ComradeMirror`okay then07:19
ComradeMirror`I understand now07:19

ComradeMirror`gaa07:21
jordanComradeMirror`, "linux" is only a kernel, how much your space your Ubuntu install is going to require depends on what applications you install07:21
ComradeMirror`yes Im thinking07:21
ComradeMirror`how much space would it take07:21
Lieuwe2021222324252627282907:21

natlinexnewbi have a silly funny question07:22
mkquistspaz: find that hard to believe... hmmm =\07:22
natlinexnewb...07:22
neo++++++07:22
spazmkquist, believe it or not07:22
spazwhee07:22
mkquistspaz: are u checking the live cd log or ur installed os log?07:22
paul928_@ubuntu-us-az07:22
ComradeMirror`does compiz fusion work with ubuntu?07:22
RedHeronComradeMirror`: Yes.07:22
ph0rensicComradeMirror`: Yes is comes with gutsy!07:23
ComradeMirror`ah07:23
spazmkquist, installed OS log, but live cd boots fine as i said07:23
natlinexnewbI have 7.10 .iso on the desktop. Can i install 7.10 right now over top of my 5.04?07:23
spazit just doesn't like being installed i guess07:23
jordanComradeMirror`, Yes, the basic features are installed by default07:23
mkquistspaz: but ur are like cd'ing to media and looking at the right log?07:23
jordannatlinexnewb, You would need to burn the iso to a CD or some other media07:23
spazmkquist, i'm picking all the logs, and most of them contain (nothing logged yet)07:23
mkquistspaz: cause its gonna be a mounted disk ur looking at07:23
natlinexnewb:(07:23
spaznatural i assume, since it freezes before the FS is mounted07:24
mkquistspaz: not the base system07:24
ComradeMirror`when I used linux before it never seem this flashie xD http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4Fbk52Mk1w&e07:24
ComradeMirror`but yeah I've used linux before just not with partitions like this07:24
spazmkquist, ? explain07:24
* spaz shouldn't be this confused lol07:24
jordannatlinexnewb, You should be able to upgrade 5.04 to 5.10 then 6.04 ... but it is no longer supported and there are no guarentees :)07:24
natlinexnewblol07:24
spazbeen a while since i've used linux...BSD brain contamination!07:25
natlinexnewbjordan,  thanx :)07:25
mkquistspaz: still find that hard to believe, cd / to root then check /media and look at ur hard drive(s) mounted there, if there is like hda or sda then cd to there and check the logs there07:25
zcat[1]my own opinion, if you don't have 8G free for root and still a sensible amount free for home, it's better to just have both in the same partition.. that way one or the other won't be too small until you actually do run out of space..07:25
spazmkquist, that's what i'm doing07:25
ComradeMirror`are those just plugins for the compiz fusion thing07:25
spazi can access my ubuntu partition inside my current OS07:25
spazerr ubuntu disk07:25
starkedWould anyone here know why the command specified in Compiz Config --> General --> Commands won't run when I press its associated key?07:25
natlinexnewbis there a human readable thingy of my devices on this box?07:25
spazand as i said mkquist, logs empty07:25
mkquistspaz: u got me then, theres gotta be something logged, i mean its trying to start sooo...  i'm thinking there has to be something in the log..07:26
RedHeronComradeMirror`: I'm not sure what you're meaning... are what?07:26
zcat[1]and if you only have 4G in /home you can back that up on a single DVD if you ever need to reinstall07:26
mkquistanyone can help spaz... he says theres nothing in logs on a system that wont fully boot when he checks w/live cd?07:26
ComradeMirror`nvm07:26
* RedHeron agrees with zcat[1] on that.07:27
natlinexnewblive CD doesnt touch the HD afaik07:27
mkquistspaz: sry, i dont know if there is nothing...07:27
jordanspaz, Is your Ubuntu partition currently mounted?07:27
RedHeronspaz: Where are you looking for logs?07:27
mkquistjordan: wont it mount w/live cd auto or not?07:27
ComradeMirror`okay hows this sound instead 8gbs for linux 6 for home 2 for swap07:27
mkquistRedHeron: i think hes looking in the wrong place, but he says not07:27
jordanmkquist, No, you need to mount internal drives explicitly07:27
ComradeMirror`since I might be torrenting unlicensed cartoons xD07:27
RedHeronComradeMirror`: Still only need 1 for swap.07:27
ComradeMirror`okay then07:27
ComradeMirror`7 for home07:28
zcat[1]ComradeMirror`: how about 30 for windows, 30 for Linux...07:28
spazRedHeron, in /var/log of course07:28
RedHeronComradeMirror`: Sounds good. :-)07:28
mkquistjordan: ty, then thats the prob...  spaz gotta mount the drive.. check w/jordan07:28
ComradeMirror`okay then07:28
spazi'm a un*x veteran...but this has me stumped heh07:28
ComradeMirror`apparently07:28
ComradeMirror`I should have defragged my drives07:28
ComradeMirror`before editing my partitions07:28
ComradeMirror`x.x07:28
RedHeronspaz: Are the logs being written to somewhere else?07:28
spazmkquist, i did mount the drive :P07:28
mkquistComradeMirror`: it really all depends what ur putting on it.   Like windows u install a lot ull prob run short... w/10gigs07:28
natlinexnewbis there a human readable text file or "easy" list of my devices on this box? I'm looking at Device manager at the mo and there are lots of strings.07:29
spazRedHeron, i don't think so...07:29
RedHeronComradeMirror`: That would help, yes.07:29
spazshouldn't be07:29
RedHeronspaz: Could be, it's worth checking into.07:29
ComradeMirror`mkquist my windows has 50gbs x.x07:29
spazRedHeron, lemme look...07:29
nickrudnatlinexnewb:  lspci07:29
RedHeronspaz: Also check to make sure permissions are correct for logging.07:29
speeddemon8803hmm...nobody in #freenode is helping me with my hostmask cloaking :/07:29
jordanspaz, What is happening when you try to boot?07:29
mkquistComradeMirror`: well thats fine, but i mean ur linux part...07:29
natlinexnewbnickrud, in terminal?07:29
zcat[1]I've resized a fair few Windows partitions and I've never defragged first... and I've never had one go bad either07:29
ComradeMirror`ah07:29
nickrudnatlinexnewb: yes07:29
ComradeMirror`you said my windows part might run short with 10 gigs07:30
ph0rensiczcat[1]: I saw it happen to a few folks07:30
mkquistComradeMirror`: sry meant linux07:30
* RedHeron has never had one go bad, but there is the possibility (remote one) that you could lose data.07:30
nickrudthe one time I resized an ntfs, it went bad. The machine was only a couple hours old, luckily07:30
ComradeMirror`ah07:30
jay-oh-eni got my webserver up now how do i add stuff to it to make a website show up07:30
ComradeMirror`question07:30
spazjordan, it locks up when it goes to to "Configue system clock"07:30
ComradeMirror`can I increase a partition07:30
ComradeMirror`after I install linux07:30
zcat[1]I advise people to backup always.. just in case..07:30
nickrudjay-oh-en: put your html in /var/www , use sudo07:30
lindzeynI have a raid0 array (2 X 750) and a 74GB Raptor.  I am trying to install ubuntu onto the Raptor.  The installation goes just fine; however, when I restart, GRUB gives me an error 25:  disk read error.07:30
ComradeMirror`say I free up more unaccolated space07:30
RedHeronComradeMirror`: It's possible, but not recommended, in general.07:30
mkquistComradeMirror`: better to fix ur part size before install id think07:31
ComradeMirror`okay then07:31

jay-oh-ennickrud, how do i remove a dir full of stuff?07:32
ph0rensiczcat[1]: any good backup software that clones the whole system?07:32
spazsomething related to the system clock07:32
jay-oh-ennickrud, sudo rm -i?07:32
nickrudjay-oh-en: to remove the directory and all it's contents,  rm -r /path/todir07:32
erawfishjay-oh-en: by using rm -rf VERY CAREFULLY07:32
RedHeronComradeMirror`: Linux doesn't stop you from doing stupid things... like using a Windows partition.07:32
jay-oh-enerawfish, thanks07:32
jay-oh-ennickrud, thanks07:32
ComradeMirror`and that means what?07:32
zcat[1]ph0rensic: partimage is OKish .. can only restore to the same size partition though07:33
nickrudjay-oh-en: I'd suggest -r, use f only if -r fails (and you know why)07:33
jay-oh-ennickrud, ok07:33

jay-oh-enzcat[1], got my answer already07:34

zcat[1]a friend of mine has dragon NS, alongh with JAWS screenreader and a whole bunch of extensions .. works really well, except after about three sessions it totally screws up and won't run... takes a reinstall to get it going again. I imaged his system in linux so now he only has to boot to linux and restore it, and keep user data elsewhere..07:54
