elhoir_NigelS: oh, guy, thank you very much, you are my god now :-P00:03
NigelSelhoir_: it all should have just worked - but for some reason the symlink was pointing to the wrong version of java - possibly the firefox attempted install messed it up a bit00:03

NigelSoreomike: switch to using nc as your client :)00:10
eekranoMagoonD, god no, I've been looking at all of them and dont like any- my themes got wiped out and i cant get them back- any way you could export that default oxygen theme and send it to me?00:10
ch08rsponger: that may of been the external (usb) cdrom drive i had in earlier ...00:11
bluekbI need to find a way to change my screen mode from about 800x600 to 1280x1060 (not sure exactly what value) -- even though no screen modes are defined in my xorg.conf.  ppracer (tux racer) got hung, and I had to kill it--but it left X windows in an odd mode.  I would just log out and back in, but I have some programs that need to keep running.00:11
MagoonDeekrano, yes how do I export it?00:11
bluekb(Hi, by the way)00:11
spongerch08r: hold 100:11
eekranoMagoonD, System > Preferences > Emerald Theme Manager00:11
MatBoydoes autoclean work really well ? so unused packages are always removed ?00:12
NigelSbluekb: can the resolution chooser in the prefs menu not do it?00:12
eekranoMagoonD, edit themes tab00:12
eekranoclick export00:12
eekranoMagoonD, click export00:12
bluekbNigelS: how do I get to that menu?  I am not familiar with it.00:12
ch08rsponger: yea , after looking at that entry... that is the external one. The attached one in my computer is a LG .. that output shows HP00:12
MagoonDeekrano i dont see emeral theme manager in system > prefs00:13
bluekbNigelS, I sometimes miss utilities for ubuntu since I use kde.00:13

hfmlswhat do i have to do?00:14

MatBoydanbhfive, I'm still looking for a solution that removes unused packages also00:14
=== mateusz is now known as Usiu
danbhfive!fixgrub | hfmls try these directions00:14
ubotuhfmls try these directions: grub is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost grub after installing windows: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows - Making GRUB floppies & other GRUB howtos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto00:14
NigelSbluekb: if it's there it should be labelled something obvious like resolution chooser - I'm not familiar with the KDE menus atm00:14
NigelSbluekb: I'm sure KDE has some analog though00:14
bluekbJoseph, if you have slocate installed, you can run "locate -r '/java$'"00:14
danbhfiveMatBoy: well, autoclean only removes old INSTALLATION files,  it doesn't remove the packages themselves.  If you want to remove packages, I would suggest playing with gtkorphan00:15
NigelSJoseph: when you say find it do you mean how to install it or where it has installed to?00:15
mid5Hi, anyone know something like internet explorer works in ubuntu?, i want to see some pages that only works with ie :s, and I questioned  me if there is a plugin or something like that00:15

ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about kiba - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi00:15

ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about kiba-dock - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi00:16
MatBoydanbhfive, ok, thanks00:16

MagoonDeekrano, i saved it but it didnt say what location it saved it to00:16
annonymousedoes any onw know any think about kiba dock00:16
KillaKowalskquick ? where can I get the kwidget header file?00:16
danh1Use kvm or qemu00:16
spongerch08r: what kind of interface? does the machine see it in the bios?00:16
NigelSmid5: you can use someting like http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/page/Main_Page to install IE in linux00:16
eekranoMagoonD, default is usually desktop00:16
MagoonDeekrano, its not on the desktop is it saved under /usr/share/themes?00:17
danbhfive!IES4Linux | mid500:17
ubotumid5: ies4linux is a script that quickly and effortlessly helps you install 3 versions of IE in Wine. Information can be found at http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/page/Main_Page including instructions specifically for Ubuntu. ies4linux is aimed at web designers and ie-only sites, so please, don’t use any of the IEs to navigate! Use Firefox!00:17
ShuggleMy login screen is always displayed in a differnt resolution than my regular desktop. can I fix this?00:17
ch08rsponger: damn... cant remember ... i know it shows up in the bios ... almost positive it is ide... if you want me to reboot and check i can00:17
ch08rsponger: i know it works in windows when i reboot00:17
NigelSJoseph: some useful commands - dpkg -l lists installed packages so you can type dpkg -l *java* and dpkg -L to list the files it installs00:17
mid5danh1,  mmm, it's good idea, i'll try whit it, but i think that if it does not work with super firefox, maybe does not work with opera00:17
ch08rsponger: <--- dual boot00:17
bluekbNigelS, well, my NVidia drivers came with a screen configuration utility.  That solved it.00:17
hfmlsdanbhfive:  is this ok?00:17
hfmlsgrub> root (hd0,0)00:17

mid5danh1, I have a virtual machine with windows00:18
JosephThank you NigelS00:18
danbhfivehfmls: doesn't look too bad00:18
mid5but i don't like00:18
danbhfivehfmls: you were missing a paranth at the end00:18
NigelSJoseph: if you go to synaptic and find a package then you can right click on it and get its properties and that will tell you where the files are00:18
eekranoMagoonD, did you click "save" or "export" ?00:18
spongerch08r post yur entire dmesg out put.00:18
hfmlsit says root hd0,1 in the page u gave me, but i think its 0.0 no? danbhfive yeah, bad paste.00:19
MagoonDeekrano, there was only option for save theres not option for export00:19

greenmansdh: hey, I'm have the same problem on a gateway00:19
eekranoMagoonD, you saved that from the "Appearances preferences" ?00:19
MagoonDeekrano, yes00:19
sdhgreenman: i can see the networks, it just won't connect to wpa or wpa200:19
NigelSbluekb: yeah, it's awkward atm - one day xorg will "just work" but until that day of porcine abetted international travel00:20
danbhfivehfmls: well, the first number corresponds to the number harddrive.  So if you only have 1 harddrive, then 0 is correct.  The second number corresponds to the partition that you installed ubuntu onto, so if you installed ubuntu onto the second partition, then 1 is correct00:20
eekranoMagoonD, if you go to the visual effects tab in there is "custom" checked off?00:20
greenmansdh: hmm...  mine won't even see the networks. and it won't connect when I manually put the SSID in.00:20

sp219Hi. I have a question. I have Ubuntu 7.10 installed, and have installed xfce4. How, without any Xserver running, can I start X with an xfce session ONLY? Thanks!01:26
saxofonerjrod: don't, get Avant window navigator01:26
Schmao-Fmaoch08r, but it shows up in dmesg? How weird .. any IDE controllers or the like in your lspci?01:26
JosephDr_willis: I tried and it worked without problems, but I did not see anything... I will try to figure this out01:26
Dr_willissp219,  Somthing seemed odd about the way you prased that.. X starts a X server.. Unless of course you are using vnc.01:26
Schmao-Fmaoalso some motherboards don't work with IDE optical drives01:26

ares-marshey guys, i just connected my USB wireless thing and when i type ifconfig i get, eth0, eth1, eth0:avah, lo, wlan0...why do i get two eth0? and what's with the "avah", which seems to be where the USB works trough since it has the IP. and if i want to tell driftnet to capture on the usb, what do i type, eth0 or eth0:avah?02:40
prettyrickyoh yes it works like a champ02:40

deniz__mahmoud2, my whole goal is to share my internet oviously with the laptop, im connected thru ppp0 apparently (since its dial-up) and im trying to export it to the laptop and im using only ethernet wires (i dint check what they r but i believe thats wat they r bcuz i looked at one and the colors were placed differently from my crossover cable)02:41
ares-mars hey guys, i just connected my USB wireless thing and when i type ifconfig i get, eth0, eth1, eth0:avah, lo, wlan0...why do i get two eth0? and what's with the "avah", which seems to be where the USB works trough since it has the IP. and if i want to tell driftnet to capture on the usb, what do i type, eth0 or eth0:avah?02:41
blagprettyricky: Go to Applications > Accessories > Text Editor and open up /etc/X11/xorg.conf02:41
deniz__mahmoud2, my crossover cable is not in this scenario, i just have 1 in the house...im saying this to clear confusion02:41
mjw-blag he's going to need to use gksudo02:41
blagmjw: good catch, thanks02:42
blagmjw: can't wait for policykit02:42
hobbsares-mars: the one showing with ':avah' is an alias interface with an avahi-configured zeroconf IP address.02:42
mahmoud2deniz__ : you want to share your Internet connection from your PC to the rest of the network ? so the router is not connection source?02:42
hobbsares-mars: if the other one doesn't show as up and having an address, then you probably don't have your network configured right.02:42
blagprettyricky: nevermind.  Go to Applications > Accessories > Terminal02:42
deniz__mahmoud2, ya02:42
deniz__mahmoud2, well02:43
zxcvmzxcvmcan anybody tell me, why gnuchess is incompatible with gnome and gnome-desktop-environment?02:43

revilodrawhi! exaile plays my music at about 50% volume, even when everything is turned up. it is the only program that does this. playing the files in vlc it will play at full volume02:44
ares-marshobbs, for some reason eth1 always gives me, i don't konw why. Internet comes through eth0:avah only. what is avahi-configured and zeroconf ip address and how do i configure it right?02:44
blagprettyricky: did it open up a text editor with a file already loaded?02:44
hobbszxcvmzxcvm: gnome-games has a conflicts with it, maybe it installs its own chess game with some of the same files as gnuchess.02:44
mahmoud2beniz__ : did you connect both the pc and laptop to the router ? they should both have net connection without problems if the router is properly ..02:45
hobbszxcvmzxcvm: and nobody arranged things so that they can live together.02:45
zxcvmzxcvmhobbs, oic, strangely enough on my x86_64 they coexist02:45
Yanch0have a bit of a problem .. have 1.6Gb free data - and am trying to create a table which is the result of a union of a table with itself which is 26 Mb .. how come it stopped saying Out of Disk SpacE? :S - DBMS : Postgresql02:45
mjw-Yanch0 what is the total size of the partition with 1.6G free?02:46
prettyrickyit opened but there is no file there02:46
prettyrickyits blank02:46
Yanch0mjw- /dev/hda7 11G 8.9G 1.3G 88% /02:46
blagprettyricky: okay, open the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf02:46
prettyrickywhere do I do that sorry nebie02:47
deniz__mahmoud2, i dont need drivers for router, right? cuz it comes with one for windows02:47
hobbszxcvmzxcvm: on closer inspection, it looks like the latest version (in hardy at least, don't know about others) removes the conflict.02:47
suiwhats up hommies02:47
prettyrickythanks blag I really appreciate this!02:47
deniz__mahmoud2, well it coems with a cd, i dint rely check its contents but it shouldnt be something other than a driver..02:47
zxcvmzxcvmhobbs, will  have in mind, I'm currently on GG02:48
prettyrickywhere do I open that file from>02:48
mahmoud2deniz__: routers does not need drivers ..  the CD content is probably the configuration software and documents ..02:48
blagprettyricky: np, so, click "Open", then click the "File System" bookmark on the left, then on the rightish, doubleclick etc, doubleclick X11, and doubleclick xorg.conf02:48
mjw-Yanch0 that's odd, that should be ok. automatically some space is reserved for root so as to avoid an intractable drive space crunch, but not that much02:48
ares-marshobbs, actually the internet IS coming though eth1, my bad02:48
prettyrickyok w102:48
mahmoud2deniz__ : and the configuration can be set from the web (http) .. no need for the configuration software if there is one02:48
hobbsares-mars: then you probably want to capture on that interface. Not sure it would actually make a difference though :)02:49
Yanch0mjw- the creation of the table stopped :\02:49
deniz__mahmoud2, k, well can u help me bcuz i rely rely need internet on that other comp (laptop)...once again im sry im stupid with networking...im not stupid in other comp areas02:49
mjw-Yanch0 not knowing anything about databases, really, is it possible the table is much bigger than you anticipated?02:50
blagprettyricky: when the file opens, scroll to the bottom, you should see a line like: # Uncomment if you have a wacom tablet02:50
mahmoud2deniz__ : when you connect the laptop to the router, you do not get a connection ?02:50
craigbass1976Anyone know why I can only connect to my new wireless router using wireshark rather than /etc/init.d/networking restart command?02:50
deniz__mahmoud2, ya it says it has found one and i try to go to google.ca on firefox and it doesnt go02:51
Yanch0mjw- not sure on that .. but the .sql file is 26mb02:51
mahmoud2deniz__: is that laptop running ubuntu ?02:51

mahmoud2deniz__: did you change any of your network settings on the laptop? IP settings ..etc?02:52
deniz__initially no, then ya, then back to normal, nothing worked02:53
deniz__not ip02:53
deniz__all i did is go from dhcp to static02:53
deniz__well attempt to02:53
Yanch0This is the error : ERROR: could not write block 163578 of temporary file: No space left on device02:53
deniz__but i had no ips and stuff to put well now that i think of it its
blagokay, now under that you should see three lines that are preceded with a pound (#) sign.  Remove the pound signs from those three lines, so it should look like this: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/56178/02:54
mahmoud2deniz__  from the terminal ping
mjw-Yanch0 hrm, do you have a separate /tmp? maybe it's running out of space there02:54
lilg111111_is it possible to make a regular yahoo email account work with evolution02:54
deniz__i type "ping"? on which comp?02:54
blagprettyricky: make sure to *keep* the pound sign on the "# Uncomment if you have a wacom tablet" line02:54
mahmoud2deniz__ : go back to DHCP and do: sudo /etc/int.d/networking restart02:54
prettyrickyok i did the uncomment and i kept the # sign on the uncomment line02:55
craigbass1976Hmmm.  I had to go in and manually edit /etc/network/interfaces.  My essid from the old router (everyone, please avoid the cheaper dlinks...) was in there.  Wonder why.02:55
deniz__mahmoud2, isnt it init .d?02:55
krammerlilg1111: I would see why not I configured gmail for evolution02:55
prettyrickyready for more directions02:55
Yanch0mjw- this is df -h : http://yancho.pastebin.com/d5d02d58902:55
mahmoud2deniz__ : yes /etc/init.d/networking restart02:55
blagprettyricky: now simply save the file, hit ctrl+alt+backspace, the screen will go dark, and you will have to login again, but the tablet should now work.02:56
prettyrickyok thanks blag/ hopefully it does.02:56

craigbass1976Kargarian, I suppose it's possible, but you're better off getting a multi-in card02:57
hobbswers: some of the above!02:58

wersor I think, I should restart x02:58
werscraigbass1976, which minimizes?02:58
Khisanthkrammer: it''s in libpcap0.7-dev and libpcap0.8-dev02:58
craigbass1976Kargarian, there's a linux audio project somewhere online-- check them out.  And ardour, if you want to multitrack, seems very cool02:58
craigbass1976wers, the window key.02:59
mjw-Yanch0 i'm a bit confused why 11 is supposed to = 8.9 + 1.3, but maybe you're just running up into what's reserved for root? dunno why else you'd be getting that error02:59
KargarianArdour is the open source project?02:59
craigbass1976Kargarian, I have a regular studio (big mixer with reel to reel and a mackie hdr) and we're moving to ubuntu with ardour02:59

steves125it doesn't show up on the desktop.  I ran lsusb and it lists it though03:13
EnderTheThirdmjw-: i know i *could* run xfce with it, but I really shouldn't have to with a 2GHz CPU.  The only thing I can think of is that the integrated video just blows and is taxing the CPU more than it needs to.03:13
steves125I tried rebooting with it in also.  didn't work.  thanks though03:13

ubotumusicjock58: Common Sense: Just because you can, does not mean you should (and especially recommend to others). Think before you do. "Works for me" does not mean it is ok. The latest version of everything is not always useful if you aim for stability. Please see http://geekosophical.net/random/worksforme/03:19
musicjock58im just sorry that i havent been much  of help03:20
EnderTheThirdmjw-:  ~410 fps03:20
Safiyyah2I have tries to install the xorg-fglrx but wont work03:20
Safiyyah2tried start x.... I get a mish mash pixel mess cant see anything03:20
EnderTheThirdmjw-: make that 200-40003:20
UncleChevitzi'm really new to ubuntu and for some reason I have Java 1.4, 5 and 6 installed, should I remove the older versions?03:20
mahmoud2deniz_: yes and then: ifconfig eth0 , what inet addr do you get?03:20
deniz_by eth0 u mean ppp0?03:21
mjw-EnderTheThird that's kind of low? But still 2D should be ok03:21
musicjock58im actually trying to get some help with timevault. anyone know what that is? i cant get into preferences anymore03:21

_riverdoes anyone know how to get madwifi to run my tp-link card @ 108mb ? currently only runs with 54mb03:22
EnderTheThirdmjw-:  yeah, it varies quite a bit.  overall the whole thing is just sluggish though.  even terminal windows take a while to appear and populate03:22
bluefoxxhow can i make streamripper rip WMAaudio?03:22
deniz_mahmoud2, k, well nutn works03:23
mjw-EnderTheThird have you poked around the BIOS at all? maybe some setting got changed (like CPU cache turned off... :P )03:23
Safiyyah2I loaded xfce4 and changed the screen resolution within xfce4, everything was fine until I logged out of the session, now x server doesnt load, it says due to an internal error so the gnone gdm won't load so I can only use ubuntu in failsafe mode, I have tried to install the xorg-fglrx but wont work, I also tried start x and that gives me a mish mash of pixels can't see anything. Ubuntu...03:23
Safiyyah2...still boots fine from the live CD(tried that too) I dont mind reinstalling Ubuntu but there is now some important data on it, so please help me either fix x server or get my data out and reinstall :)03:23
EnderTheThirdmjw-:  i toyed with AGP aperature and some others, but no difference03:23
deniz_mahmoud2, the network restart thing gives "failed to bring up wlan0" and the ifconfig ppp0 and eth0 both give the same result: "error fetching interface information: device not found"03:24
musicjock58bluefoxx have you tried something like k3b or something like that? why streamripper?03:24
mjw-EnderTheThird have you tried the vesa driver? Is it equally or even more sluggish?03:24
EnderTheThirdlet me check03:25
EnderTheThirdi'm going to poke around bios too, be back in a min03:25
mjw-EnderTheThird I actually am on a computer right now that gets ~400FPS in glxgears and even compiz is ok. Maybe you've got a slow or dying HD?03:25

prettyrickyi have gutsy03:29
deniz_mahmoud2, its not defective so it must be not detected...doesnt wired connections have super good  reputation of being detected in ubuntu? and btw laptop said that it got connected to desktop doesnt mean that the ethernet port works??03:29

nanohey guys, i was wondering if anybody knew where ubunutu keeps its open source version of nvidia driver, called "nv"...i tried searching in /lib but couldn't find the corresponding nv.ko file04:15
bruenigUncleChevitz: don't use the -d flag in that command04:15
piedoggieugh.  python-profiler is listed in multiverse but is is not found with aptitude.  and yes, multiverse is in sources.list04:15
nanothis room is pretty busy tonight04:16
Raspberryso long and thanks for all the fish04:16
pawangetting error 22 no such partition04:16
IdleOnepiedoggie, what error is aptitude giving you?04:16
killuxhey, i am on a ubuntu live cd and i need to uninstall grub from the mbr, how can i do this?04:16
nanocan somebody tell me the difference between the following commands "modproble driver" and04:17
mjw-piedoggie installs fine here, just checked.04:17
ghosthey im reading this guide on ubuntu docs on how to build from source, but the make commands don't do anything in the folder. they have those domake.sh script in there but when I tried to run it it complains04:17
nano"insmod driver"04:17
UncleChevitzI used the same command with out the -d flag and it just tells me "my system is up to date"04:17
bruenignano: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nv_drv.so and don't call it ubuntu's open source version as they haven't the slightest thing to do with it04:17
Yanch0By mistake I named another partition /home (used gui and it screwed everything) .. data is still on /dev/hda7 ... files are still there .. how can I access it ? this is my df -h : http://yancho.pastebin.com/d40c00a52 .. help is really appreciated please!04:17
nanocan somebody tell me the difference between the following commands "modproble driver" and "insmod driver"04:17
piedoggieI'm searching using the curses ui and it is not finding thet package04:17
compwiz18killux: you can't uninstall grub, but you can install over grub...04:17
compwiz18killux: what are you trying to put on the mbr?04:17
forleaf killux -----format the whole disk......04:17
IdleOnepiedoggie, try sudo aptitude install python-profiler04:17
bruenignano: none really04:17
[dcr]killux: what are you trying to do? o.o04:18
mjw-nano: insmod is simpler. modprobe does some dependency resolution, I think, plus you can actually remove modules with it too04:18
killuxno, i removed a harddrive and now grub wont boot up my existing hardrive with windows on it04:18
forleafthit's  is nothing:-D04:18
killuxi just want to clear the mbr04:18
mjw-piedoggie did you do a   sudo apt-get update after adding multiverse?04:18
compwiz18killux: if you do that, nothing will boot04:18
mjw-mjw- and a   sudo apt-get install python-profiler  should do the trick04:18
piedoggiemjw: yes04:18
compwiz18killux: if you can get to windows, yes, fixmbr should do it, I think04:19
nanoI am trying to load a module...i can only load it if i do issue the full name ie (modprobe /file/driver.ko), however, i cannot automatically load it by putting "driver" in /etc/modules04:19
NigelSkillux: when you say you removed a HD, you removed the HD with the /boot directory on it? if not it is probably just that the drive order changed, hence their numbers changed and grub is trying to load the wrong drive04:20
forleafwhy do you want to clear  mbr  killux?04:20
UncleChevitz!upgrade > me04:20
nanobasically, i don't have loading the driver if i put the full name in ...i.e. including the04:20
nano".ko" but i can't load just "driver"04:20
nanowhatsup with that?04:20
Matze79_where can i get a new version of calmav ? the package i get from xubuntu rep. is outdated :(04:20

box-UncleChevitz : are you wanting the beta or Gutsy ?04:21
pawanhow to open menu.lst04:21
piedoggiemjw: here are the results:  http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/56181/04:21
Matze79_i have gutsy04:21
freezeyok so when i run lspci i see drivers installed for my SD/MMC smart card reader there but when i put it in the PC it doesnt load or read04:21
pawanmy ubuntu is pointing to wrong partition gotta change it04:21
NigelSpawan: it's in /boot/grub04:22
pawani am using livecd04:22
mattgrieserMy menu bars are HUGE!!! Like 10 times wider than normal. What's up?04:22
mjw-piedoggie ah, you're in dapper. there may be no package for dapper.04:22
[dcr]i just created a new partition FAT32 to install Widnows XP to04:23
freezeymattgrieser: is your resolution correct?04:23
pawanhow to open /boot/grub04:23
[dcr]is there anything i need to know before I get started installing Windows XP?04:23
nanodoes anybody know why i can load a driver if i issue the complete file name but i cannot load the driver by putting its name without ".ko"  in /etc/modules04:23
NigelSpawan: I see - you've done that so you can repair the file but grub is interactive - you could have just given it a new drive interactively from boot - nevertheless you now need to mount the hard disk with grub on it - you can list your hard disks by typing ls -al /dev/disk/by-id04:23
forleafpawan: grub doesn't install on your pc ,so you cant find it.04:23
piedoggiehttp://packages.ubuntu.com/dapper/source/python-profiler  sez there is...04:23
mjw-!info python-profiler dapper > piedoggie04:23
freezey[dcr]: that it sucks04:23
[dcr]Lol freezey04:23
[dcr]I know thats why i installed linux04:24
[dcr]but i need the dualboot for other things04:24
UncleChevitzbox: gutsy04:24
freezey[dcr]: install vmware and run an virtual instance04:24
mjw-piedoggie the whole package size 0kB is really fishy though04:24
[dcr]i already went through the process of partitioning another drive04:24
[dcr]i think i can survive dualboot =[04:25

piedoggieI think the dapper multiverse is gone04:25
mjw-!info python-profiler > piedoggie04:25
freezey[dcr]: even better to setup vmware04:25
NigelSnano: possibly it's not compiled against the currently running kernel? you found the kernel object .ko in a dir like /lib/modules..kernel name?04:25
freezeydoes anybody know about the smart card reader?04:25
mjw-piedoggie it dapper is 6.06? it should still be there. weird though.04:25
nanodoes anybody know why i can load a driver if i issue the complete file name but i cannot load the driver by putting its name without ".ko"  in /etc/modules04:25
[dcr]freezey: well it sucks that i barely know about vmware so i'll have to make due04:25
piedoggiedcr: virt machines are a great way to try out new installs04:25
nanoNigel: i don't think that is the problem04:25
pawanhow to mount04:25
IdleOnepiedoggie, see if you can download from packages.ubuntu.com then install using spkg -i package-name.deb04:26
NigelSnano: this is to say if the dir you're in is not /lib/modules/`uname -r` then modprobe won't see it04:26
nanoNigel: yes there is only one kernel on my system04:26
piedoggieI use them on my laptop on one of my servers04:26
Yanch0By mistake I named another partition /home (used gui and it screwed everything) .. data is still on /dev/hda7 ... files are still there .. how can I access it ? this is my df -h : http://yancho.pastebin.com/d40c00a52 .. help is really appreciated please! /etc/fstab is still like it should be .. maybe a reboot will do the trick? or I can risk that I will not enter the OS and for sure I can forget to fix it ?04:26
nanomodprobe can see other drivers that are in the same place, but it doesn't see this04:26
NigelSnano: how did this driver get there? did you add it?04:26
nanoI used Nvidia-installer executable files04:27
freezeyok so when i run lspci i see drivers installed for my SD/MMC smart card reader there but when i put it in the PC it doesnt load or read04:27
StarnestommyYanch0: try sudo umount /dev/hda804:27

Yanch0Starnestommy ^04:27
piedoggiemjw:  ugh.  I guess I need to upgrade my virtual server two something a little more current04:27
nanofreezey: you need to mount it04:27
IdleOne!mount | pawalls04:27
ubotupawalls: Partitioning programs: !GParted or QTParted (also "man mkfs" for formatting) - Mounting partitions in !GNOME under !Dapper: System -> Administration -> Disks - For !Edgy and later, see !fstab and !DiskMounter04:27
IdleOne!mount | pawan04:27
ubotupawan: Partitioning programs: !GParted or QTParted (also "man mkfs" for formatting) - Mounting partitions in !GNOME under !Dapper: System -> Administration -> Disks - For !Edgy and later, see !fstab and !DiskMounter04:27
[dcr]is there anyway to lets say switch /dev/hda1 with /dev/hda3 ?04:28
NigelSpawan: whichever of those drives contains your linux root drive - mount /dev/<drive letter and number> /directory of your choosing04:28
freezeynano: yeah? how do i find out which it is?04:28
pawanwill i lose the existing insatllation and data04:28
StarnestommyYanch0: you'll probably need to log into recovery mode or reboot to fix it if that umount failed04:28
NigelSnano: was depmod -a run by this installer? this more or less sounds like a problem with whatever process was used to install the driver04:28
NigelSnano: modprobe needs modules.dep to be current04:28
piedoggiethe only problem I'm worried about is that I'm not sure how compatible VM Ware server 1.04 is with the latest Ubuntu04:29
nanoNigelS, do i need to run depmod -a04:29
NigelSpawan: merely mounting the drive will not cause you to lose data04:29
nanoim not sure if this installer ran that04:29
freezeypiedoggie: i setup vmware server on a CentOS 5 machine04:29
freezeyworks flawlessly04:29
UncleChevitzI've been trying to upgrade from 6.06, I followed the instructions @ https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EdgyUpgrades, but its just giving me a warning about "apt api not stable yet", anybody got suggestions?04:30
piedoggieno, I'm worried about the guest04:30
NigelSpawan: but as I say, you don't need to do this to boot ubuntu - you could from the grub menu edit the menu.lst on startup, i.e. enter the interactive prompt - however you're here now so you can do it this way04:30
freezeynano : how do i found out which device it is?04:30
NigelSnano: try it, see if it works - though this is the official nvidia installer?04:30
nanonigels: yes its the official nvidia installer04:30
NigelSnano: also have you run modprobe in verbose mode to see what error, if any it gives?04:30
NigelSnano: the nvidia version currently outpaces the one in the repos I guess?04:31
pawani am not getting the drive letter where ubuntu is insatlled how to find04:31
nanofreezey: depends on the type fo device it is, im not sure what your device is but a quick google search will tell you whatsup04:31
piedoggieone of the problems I ran into in a previous life was that the guests tools didn't always install properly on the more current distributions04:31
Yanch0Starnestommy will a reboot delete the files in the partition ?04:31
nanoNgielS: i think i will try that04:31
nanothanks for ur hlep04:31
nanoand i will reboot04:31
NigelSpawan: if you type fdisk -l it will list all partitions and their associated file types - look for the one which is formatted in ext3 0x8304:32
StarnestommyYanch0: if they weren't deleted now they most likely won't be deleted when rebooting04:32
NigelSfile formats even04:32
Yanch0Starnestommy any other option apart from deleting that u might think of please?04:32
Yanch0Starnestommy deleting = rebooting04:33
StarnestommyYanch0: no, it doesn't.04:33
Starnestommyor at least it shouldn't unless something major goes wrong04:33
NigelSpawan: you created a seperate /boot partition?04:34
Yanch0Starnestommy should i restart from the button - so it doesnt save settings?04:34
niuqhow do i change to init 3?04:35
pawanyes and swap too04:35
Starnestommyniuq: sudo telinit 304:35
niuqohhh telinit04:35
StarnestommyYanch0: no, sudo telinit 604:35
niuqwhy tel?04:35
Yanch0Starnestommy from ssh or from the server itself?04:35
NigelSpawan: I think the /boot then is /dev/sdb3 - try this mkdir /tmp/boot && mount /dev/sdb3 /tmp/boot04:36
StarnestommyYanch0: it might be a bit safer to do it from the server, unless it's too far away04:36
moDumasshey all, is there some way that will allow me to see thumbnail previews of images in gnome again?04:36
Yanch0no next to me .. im doing it04:36
pawanubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo mkdir /tmp/boot && mount /dev/sdb3 /tmp/boot04:37
pawanmkdir: cannot create directory `/tmp/boot': File exists04:37
Yanch0Starnestommy from the gui i cannot load the terminal :(04:37
NigelSpawan: I see, then change boot to something that isn't there04:37
OmegaCenti_Alright, My big problem today is my terminal fonts can't be loaded or something or another04:37
StarnestommyYanch0: ctrl+alt+f2, then log in as yourself at the prompt and type sudo telinit 604:38
Yanch0done Starnestommy .. now what please?04:38
NigelSpawan: I leave that to you04:39
pawanwill changing to anything mess up04:39
StarnestommyYanch0: it should reboot04:39
Yanch0its restarting04:39
j0hng4lthello folks, newbie here, finally got ubuntu installed and wireless config working (needed restriced driver...)04:39

Starnestommyrainwalker: netfilter or iptables04:48
rainwalkerStarnestommy: or? how do I know which one?04:48
Starnestommyrainwalker: they're the same thing.  netfilter is the kernel-side part and iptables is the user-space utility that controls netfilter04:49
NigelSrainwalker: linux uses iptables  - iptables is netfilter04:49
mjw-mouseboyx i don't know, honestly, the build-essential package will definitely net you that.04:49

mjw-scjp_ x86 = 32 bit, 64 = 64 bit04:54
Starnestommyscjp_: regular x86 is 32-bit.  x86-64 is 64-bit and optimised for 54-bit machines04:54

miniuxHi everyone, I just nuked my / partition (long story)... I have a separate /home partition and I am trying to reinstall... finally got gparted/ubuntu install partitioner to recognize my old partition table by rewriting it with testdisk and I had to delete the very corrupted / partition (because it was "overlapping" with another partition)... I am trying to attach the new install to my old /home and user preferences but it doesnt see my old users.. and yes m04:54
prettyrickywhat is everyone using to install new themes for the start up04:54
scjp_Starnestommy, so basically x86 is like pentium04:54

mjw-scjp_ the original pentiums 1-4 were all 32bit processors, yes04:55

ubotuLAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)05:07

j0hng4ltIn 2 hours I can tell that this os kicks the dog $%^& out of vista05:16
CoLD^MeTaLi actually had a crash due to bad battery life, and some gnome applets have been currupted and deleted, but i did aptitude reinstall gnome-applet, figured it'd solve everything05:16
G1015j0ng4lt: what are you using?05:16
j0hng4ltI have a new dell laptop, came with vista, put ubuntu in, installed perfectly, everything wroks - even the buttons on the front05:16
NigelSpawan: ok, the line you're interested in is the one labelled root - that reads (hd1,6) - if this is wrong you need to alter it to the correct value - from your fdisk output it may be 5 but I'm not entirely certain on that; now you don't need to edit this file to discover it - at boot if you press e you can interactively edit these settings until you determine the correct one05:16
CoLD^MeTaLah right05:16

NigelSunagi_: yes, what I'm interested in, in particular, is what it actually did - what was the conflict that this pkg resolved? the way to fix this really is to manually replace those components - i.e. remove that pkg and replace whatever it removed - then apt should no longer see a problem - failing that try and use aptitude - it has more sophisticated routines for resolving conflicts and may suggest a better solution than the one apt has found05:19
mjw-music`freak well, check this for me: in a terminal, what does   glxinfo | grep -i direct   return?05:19
pawanwill hd1 be fixed05:19
music`freakhold on...05:20

mjw-music`freak well you've got the right driver installed at least05:20

soldats!defrag | jack-desktop05:21
ubotujack-desktop: 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.05:21
music`freakwhat next?05:21
mjw-music`freak what's the 'native' resolution of the monitor you're using05:21
music`freakits a CRT05:21
CoLD^MeTaLi'll repeat05:21
CoLD^MeTaLok, another question, my mic doesn't work, i mean, when i unmute it i head it, but when i try to use skype it doesn't get anything and when i use sound recorder i get the follwing message:05:21
CoLD^MeTaL"your audio device settings are invalid. please correct them in multimedia settings"05:21

unagi_NigelS: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/56190/05:22
jack-desktopsoldats, thanks.05:22
mjw-music`freak post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf to a pastebin and I'll take a looksee at it. It probably has a bunch of modes in it that your monitor breaks with that could be deleted05:22
mjw-!pastebin | music`freak05:22
ubotumusic`freak: pastebin is a service to post large texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org (make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the #ubuntu channel topic)05:22
NigelSunagi_: hmm, my recommendation then is to try and see whether undoing that will resolve this: you can probably find the correct package in your apt cache but to ensure you have the right one for gutsy you can download it from http://packages.ubuntu.com/gutsy/libs/kdelibs4c2a05:23
ploomany good articles on upstart vs initng?05:23

music`freakis it important?05:25

genjixmy grub and system is fucked just after upgrading05:40
joeaminedsynaptic is a front end, it's not a repository of software packages05:40

ubotugenjix: Please watch your language and topic to help keep this channel family friendly.05:40
ph0rensicfxd: Well the package resides at the medibuntu repository ... but once you add the repository to your sources, you can find it in synaptic or using the ommand line (which is faster)05:40
music`freakwhats the diff. btw. gksu & sudo mjw-?05:40
mjw-!gksu | music`freak05:41
ubotumusic`freak: If you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)05:41
ph0rensicmusic`freak: gksudo is for graphical apps05:41
joeaminedfxd : the packages are present in repositories, synaptic or aptitude are just front ends to display what repositories offer as packages05:41

ccqi feel like someone trying to brainwash me with ideas like "freedom as speech software" and "ubuntu is universal truth, way of life". is ubuntu some kind of sect?

ph0rensicj0hng4lt: Command Line Interface05:48
ph0rensicj0hng4lt: terminal05:48
j0hng4ltokay, browse there and then change the attributes?  like a attrib dos command?05:48

Raelwhen I mute and unmute the pcm channele I can hear th espeakers clicking so I know its connected05:54
ph0rensicj0hng4lt: use the chown command to change the directory ownder to you, or create another user called say... webadmin and chown it to him .. or you can make a group have permissions to write to the folder, and then add yourself to the group05:54

marupaHi, just installed ubuntu x64.  I'm trying to get java to work, but I can't get it to work at all.  Anyone know of any fixes?  Every time I try to install it, it installs fine, but after I've rebooted firefox, it acts like it wasn't installed.06:18

jscinozHey guys, I'm using nvidia driver 169.09, i have horrible 3d performance on what should be a decent card (8400M GS), also anything 3d uses 100% CPU, yet glxinfo confirms i have direct rendering. I need help with this otherwise its back to windows >_<06:20
Cpudan80jscinoz: Are you using the drivers from the restricted driver thing?06:21
jscinozcpudan80, no installed via envy as the ones in ubuntu's repo are out of date06:21
Cpudan80jscinoz: Maybe you should get a different driver from Nvida06:22
u007-1lyte - okay :)06:22
swuboojscinoz:  Out of date isn't necessarily a bad thing.06:22
Cpudan80jscinoz: I had a similar issue with a 169 driver in Windows06:22
jscinozbe right back then, downgrading06:22
mjw-out of date often means stable. nicely stable. :)06:22
Cpudan80not sure what # it was06:22
swuboojscinoz:  glxinfo gives my version of the nvidia driver as 1.4, and I've never had a problem with it.06:22
Cpudan80Im not sure what's up with Nvidia06:22
jscinozbrb downgrading from 169xx to 100.14.19 >_<06:22

swubooZeppelin:  Yes.06:23
Cpudan80Led_Zeppelin: Yes06:23
Led_ZeppelinCpudan80, ok, how are you running Java applets?06:24
Cpudan80swuboo: Yeah, their drivers are quite spotty06:24
Cpudan80Led_Zeppelin: See the instructions from Ubotu06:24
Led_Zeppelinlets work on Java first, then Flash :)06:24
Cpudan80The instructions are for Flash and Java06:24
Cpudan80Led_Zeppelin: The Java crashes a lot in my experience06:24
Cpudan80To the point where I avoid firing up java applets06:24
Led_Zeppelinoh no06:25
swubooIronically, I have Flash working, but I've got it completely blocked because of that horrible grey-screen-freezy-thing.06:25
Led_Zeppelinnot good :-(06:25
Led_ZeppelinCpudan80, wow really?06:25

astro76glick: if you've lost the private key file there is no way to recover, it's *very* important to back this up well06:27
gooseis there a way I can set a password on Evolution so it cannot be launched without the password?06:27

marupawhoever gave me the link for 32b firefox on 64b linux.  THANK YOU!  Geez.  I was dying06:28
Cpudan80astro76: But in theory with the public key and the passcode you should be able to get the private key06:28
glickastro76, so there is no way i can recover it?06:28
mjw-goose just use it in an account that requires the password06:28
dookdookastro76, thanks06:28
Cpudan80Like K+(K-(m)) = m as does K-(K+(m)) = m06:28
astro76glick: there's no way06:29
Cpudan80The passphrase could be for any private key...06:29
goosemjw: I want to be able to save the password on Evolution so I don't have to punch it in when it automatically checks every 10 minutes for new messages, but I don't want it to even open without the root password or something06:29
travisathow does one reset the resolution of x from the command line?06:29
Cpudan80Yeah there is no way06:29
jribCpudan80: it may take him millions of years, but sure06:29
Cpudan80Brute force would be the way06:29
astro76glick: people back up their private key and revocation certificate and place them in a safe deposit box sometimes06:30
NecrodrakoHello, I'm using Gutsy Gibbon, im not quite sure what i did, i havent done anything out of the ordinary, but my desktop icons wont show up nor will any folder windows (home folder, /media/) nothing. Does anyone know a possible solution to this?06:30
Cpudan80Necrodrako: can you get to it from a terminal ?06:30
Cpudan80Necrodrako: Try CTRL+ALT+F106:30
NecrodrakoCpudan80: yes06:31
glickif i can generate a public key from a private key06:31
glickwhy not a private key from a public key?06:31
Cpudan80glick: that would be bad!06:31
glickmathematically its the same thing06:31
jribglick: because that is not what you do06:31
swubooglick:  Because if it worked that way, the entire excersize would have no purpose.06:31
Cpudan80glick: the functions are one way06:31
NecrodrakoCpudan80: i can run any program just fine, just no desktop icons, or explorer windows06:31
glickCpudan80, i mean of course you need the passphrase06:31
ph0rensicgreat... non working gparted wrecked grub... and didn't even resize the disk06:31
Cpudan80Necrodrako: so nautilus is just not working, try restarting06:31
Cpudan80glick: But if your passphrase is password --- how does that help?06:32
swubooI've been having severe stability issues with Nautilus the last week or so.06:32
NecrodrakoCpudan80: Already tried that06:32
Cpudan80My passphrase could also be password06:32
Cpudan80Necrodrako: What does the debug log say?06:32
goosedoes anyone know how I can lock Evolution so it can only be opened with a password?06:32
Cpudan80It dumps it to your home folder06:32

glickCpudan80, i thought i could use that to generate a corresponding key06:32
swubooCpudan80:  Does it, now?  Any idea what, "debug log dumped due to signal 11" means?06:33
NecrodrakoCpudan80: im not sure what you mean by the debug log06:33
Cpudan80glick: You can, but not directly06:33
astro76glick: the passphrase simply encrypts the private key to protect it in case it falls into the wrong hands, it has nothing to do with generating one from the other06:33
Cpudan80glick: you would have to brute force through all possible private keys06:33
Cpudan80Necrodrako: Look in /home for a nautilus debug log06:34
Cpudan80swuboo: hehehe - well sometimes it says more than that06:34
glickits a 2048 bit key that shouldnt take too long06:34
glicki have dual cores!06:34
swubooCpudan80:  I'm sure, but mine just says that about two hundred times.06:34
astro76glick: only a few hundred years06:34
Cpudan80glick: 192 centuries to guess all possible 8 character passwords from a US keyboard06:35
glickastro76, heh more like a couple of trillions of years06:35
NecrodrakoCpudan80: i dont see one06:35
astro76glick: yes very true06:35
Cpudan80glick: 2048 bit would be many more than 8 characters06:35
Necrodrakoall i got is 2 folders, "Login" and my user folder "mike"06:35
swubooCpudan80:  In fact, if the time stamps are accurate, Nautilus dumped that phrase to the log over a hundred times in under a second.06:35
Cpudan80192 decades, sorry06:35
NecrodrakoCpudan80: all i got is 2 folders, "Login" and my user folder "mike"06:35
Cpudan80scratch that idea then06:35
Cpudan80Necrodrako: and no errors show up at all?06:36
NecrodrakoCpudan80: none06:36
baxterHello all06:37
NecrodrakoCpudan80: wait i found a debug log, not in home folder but in user06:37
Cpudan80what does it say?06:37

Cpudan80baxter: there is no such thing as stupid question06:37
Cpudan80Just very dumb ones ;-)06:38
Raeldoes anyone else have issue with copy and paste in linux. I have noticed this in both fedora and ubuntu. the system acts like a jive turkey when you try to copy....like the text won't stay highlighted, or right click copy won't work you have to do it from File-Copy06:38
lytewell everything looks silly once you find the solution :p06:38
baxterwhen you've spent four hours trying to edit the xorg.conf correctly it starts to feel that way06:38
swuboolyte:  That is so, entirely, not true.06:38
Cpudan80baxter: ok... what are you editing it for?06:38
NecrodrakoCpudan80: the log is filled with the same thing over and over "0x8177510 2008/02/16 00:24:46.9851 (USER): debug log dumped due to signal 11"06:39
Cpudan80normally you want to avoid doing that06:39
lyteRael: you know there's kind of two copy/pastes in most linux installs right? selecting and middle clicking and ctrl+c/v06:39

Cpudan80does your gfx card support that resolution?06:41

Cpudan80Necrodrako: do you use windows at all?06:42
Cpudan80Necrodrako: on the machine in question that is06:43
jscinozaccording to glmark, this driver scores 732, the 169 scores 747, not too much of adifference06:43
jscinozits still too low though06:43
swubooBaxter:  Is that 16:9?  My back-of-envelope work was like 17.7:10.  Which, I guess would make sense.06:43

NecrodrakoCpudan80: not that its really any of my business, but do you use any instant mesengers that i might add you on?07:00
russRael python is an interpreted language so to run a python-based application you need to run the python interpreter07:00
ere4siRael: I use gdesklets and don't have a cpu or mem hit from them07:00
LimCoreperhaps there is application-toy that shows some shape/icon/whatever "chasing" the mouse cursor? that would do too07:01

ph0rensicCrap....Trying to partition my hd screwed it.. I have to do a zero fill on it now..07:27
McGodph0rensic: What did u do?07:27
Schmao-Fmaosquarebracket, if you're referring to DVDs, NTSC refers only to the frame rate07:27
Schmao-FmaoFor TV encoding NTSC is 525 scanlines07:28
squarebracketSchmao-Fmao, i was not, i was referring to the resolution of my tv :P.... ya, 525 scanlines07:28
ph0rensicMcGod: I was trying to partition it and the partitioner failed and left grub out of whack .. then I tried to fix grub and then it just says the disk failed upon boot07:28
squarebracketSchmao-Fmao, the "effective resolution" is 720x480 though, right?07:28
astro76squarebracket: yes 720x480, keep in mind that's displayed in a 4:3 ratio... the pixels are not square07:28
skull-DTquick question how do I check CPU temp??07:29
squarebracketastro76, yup, will do... trying to get my old nvidia card to output to my tv, sigh.07:29
mkquistph0rensic: have u tried reinstalling grub?07:29
ph0rensicMcGod: All this because i wanted another partition to test the 64 bit...07:29
ph0rensicmkquist: Yes I did07:29
mkquistph0rensic: i was about to say forget that question... so do you have an o/s installed?07:30
McGodShould I pre-make the parition for Ubuntu07:30
ph0rensicmkquist: the partitioner wont read the disk07:30
ph0rensicmkquist: Nope .. Im gonna dual boot it as soon as the zero fill is done...07:30
RaelI cant get the rythembox applete to work either07:30
ph0rensicmkquist: another long night07:30
mkquistph0rensic: so the partitioner on the live cd wont read it?07:31
Schmao-Fmaosquarebracket, I believe so but I'm not sure07:31
ph0rensicmkquist: yah .. interesting eh?07:31
ere4siRael: it won't work - it's old rhythmbox went to dbus ages ago and the gdesklet still uses bonobo07:32
mkquistph0rensic: do you have any other live cds like maybe knoppix?07:32
Schmao-FmaoAnyone know if the Ubuntu Dapper LTS LiveCD uses a new kernel, or an old one?07:32
ph0rensicLuckily I have all my important stuff on another hdd07:32
Schmao-Fmaonew as in 2.6.22 and old as in less than that :)07:32
ph0rensicmkquist: No I was actually going to download a knoppix disc for the future though07:32
astro76squarebracket: if you are going out to tv, 640x480 might be what you want07:32
ph0rensicmkquist: Im already going through the zero fill... it takes forever07:32
mkquistph0rensic: so how are u writing to the disc then?07:32
McGodbrb booting to livecd07:33

ahorriblemessHi everyone07:33
mkquistph0rensic: u have windows on there? im guessing no?07:33
mkquistph0rensic: seems like a wast to do a zero fill to me07:33
ph0rensicmkquist: Nope I never did, it was a full ubuntu install and I wanted to add a partition to test 64bit07:34
ahorriblemessI've been using a USB mouse on my laptop, I disabled my touchpad with a button above it, but when I switched it back on I lost control over configuring it (if I disable "tap to click" it doesn't work)07:34
ahorriblemessanyone have nay ideas? Do you tihnk a simple reboot would help?07:34
ph0rensicmkquist: Normally yes, but I cant get the disc to install anythig on it atm07:34
astro76ahorriblemess: probably restarting X would help (ctrl+alt+backspace)07:34
Raeloh ok07:34
mkquistph0rensic: been a while since having to use maxblast, it doesnt have an option to just delete parts?07:34
ph0rensicmkquist: Windows wont even install on it after I did a quick zero fill and set up new partitions07:34
mkquistph0rensic: maxtor drive?07:35
ph0rensicmkquist: I tried.. yes it is a maxtor drive.. Ional also have a seagate disc for my seagate, but that drive is functi07:35

kimSystem->Administration->Networking  id like the one from dapper i think it was. most importantly, it had an autodetect button for dialup modems, which is gone in new releases. makes it a lot less noob-friendly without it. not only that, but gutsy doesnt detect the same dialup modem on ttys0 that dapper could. i also think the clear-cut 'enable' and 'disable' buttons in the networking window of dapper were a lot bette08:30

Gatorgradcpk1: Looks like greek to me but I'll try it.  I've installed Ubuntu 7.1 in virtualization using VirtualBox, and to install some of the VirtualBox features (variable screen resolution, etc) I need to run a command in root from the CD directory.08:30
Andycasssis there a way to autoupdate without user interference?08:31
kimi had to run an old dapper livecd to use dialup when my adsl went down the other day, because feisty just will not see my dialup modem. i dont think it should be that hard to use, with the tagline 'linux for human beings'08:31
Gatorgradcpk1: The command I need to run in root on the CD is "sh ./VBoxAdditions.run"  do I just put that after "sudo" ?08:32

ahmedhow to make a repository from the Ubuntu-DVD ISO image??09:38
alanbshepard70I need a little help. I was installing a package from a command line and when I put in the command quite unexpectedly 37 other packages were automatically marked for removal. When the prompt came up "Continiue y/n?" I put in no and it continued anyway. I hit ctrl+z to stop the operation but the wamerican package had already been removed before I could stop it. After re-installing the package I can't get spell checking as you go workin09:40
prince_jammysalanbshepard70: wamerican was the only package removed?09:43
alanbshepard70prince_jammys: yes and I reinstalled it. I checked my apt logs and it's the only thing that actually got removed.09:44
ahmedhow to make a repository from the dvd ISO image??09:44
alanbshepard70The spell checking as you go isn't working in firefox. I've gone through all my firefox settings and everything looks good. If I have spell checking on every word is now uderlined as if spelled incorrectly. It's missing a dictionary file somewhere I'm guessing but I don't know where else to look.09:45
prince_jammysahmed:  i'm not sure i understand your question, but look into the package "aptoncd"09:46
wng-is there a easy-to-install plugin for firefox so that I can play wmv files in the browser?09:46
FluxDHi, How do I use find to search non case sensitive09:46
alanbshepard70ahmed: --> System->Administration->Software Sources09:46
ahmedi know aptoncd09:46
prince_jammysFluxD command line or GUI?09:46
ahmedi downloaded ubuntu dvd i want to use it as repository09:47
FluxDprince_jammys, theres a gui for find?09:47
prince_jammysFluxD: instead of -name,  -iname ...  there's gui's that search for files, though i don't know that they specifically use the command "find"09:47
FluxDprince_jammys, gnome-search-tool ?09:48
prince_jammysFluxD: are you familiar with the "find" command?09:48
FluxDyes prince_jammys thats what I was asking09:48
prince_jammysFluxD: yes, gnome-search-tool is one09:48
prince_jammysFluxD :    find /starting/path  -iname 'nametofind'09:48
FluxDprince_jammys, I want to use find and search for all cases of mysql, MYSQL, mySQL etc09:48
FluxDiname makes it case independent ?09:49
prince_jammysFluxD:  -iname is case insensitive, as opposed to -name09:49
wng-How can I get firefox to play wmv files in the browser09:49
FluxDprince_jammys, default find is also case sensitive rifht?09:49
alanbshepard70wng: I believe you need to install the mplayer plugin09:50
prince_jammysFluxD: within the entire filesystem::   sudo find / -iname '*mysql*'   or sudo find / -iname 'mysql*'09:50
wng-thanks alanbshepard7009:50
FluxDprince_jammys, ok ty09:51
prince_jammysFluxD: * if mysql is only part of the file name09:51
prince_jammysFluxD: an alternate way is ::  locate filename  <--- this searches a saved index of your file system and is faster, though less accurate if the index is not up to date09:52
FluxDprince_jammys, thats what I was looking for! u already did sudo updatedb09:53
cox377hey all09:53
prince_jammysFluxD: i don't know how to make that one case insensitive, check man locate09:54
FluxDthx prince_jammys09:54
prince_jammysFluxD:  locate -i09:54
cox377i've created a start up script, when i run it with ./script it works. I've made it executable and added to /etc/rc.d but it doesnt seem to run on start up. anyone got any ideas?09:54
jhaigUsing Feisty and I cannot get the "Preferences" window in Firefox open.  Can anyone help?  This is a problem for me because I need to set it to use a proxy server.09:55
prince_jammysFluxD: locate -i mysql <--- * not necessary here09:55
FluxDprince_jammys, got it thanks that worked09:56

tricklenSkitt: it's not mine10:06
Skittnasty ^^10:06
alanbshepard70tricklen: you've tried to boot normally and it doesn't work so you tried safe graphics mode correct? In safe graphics mode you can get to a desktop with no menu bars at all. Does the screen move around if you drag your cursor near the edge of the screen.10:06
simplghi! I can't to find options in sed for selection certain line from file. Know anybody about that?10:06

tricklenalanbshepard70: do you think there's any chance things will work better if i do a full install. most likely no ha?10:09
prince_jammyssimplg: describe exacty what you want -- you a want a line number or the content of the line -- and what is special about the line you want?10:09
HinHinHi there10:10
BernardBmagnetron, what command is an standard command for ffmeg, converting avi to mp4?10:10
alanbshepard70tricklen: in my experience if a problem occurs with a live CD it will still occur on a full install. The one thing to hope for would be that after the install you could run updates and maybe one of the updates fixes your issue.10:10
tricklenIS there a way to enter the control panel without accessing the menu bar?10:10
rosebuntu__bernardB / type mencorder --help10:10
tricklenso that i could check resolution etc?10:11
fooI'm on dapper and want to upgrade to the latest version of ubuntu. Anyway to do this without reinstalling?10:11
fooI've heard the upgrade past dapper doesn't go so smoothly.10:11
HinHinI'm trying to apt-get install something again, but it's asking to resolve dependcies... the thing i need to install a driver to get THAT computer online10:11
kimis it possible to force growisofs to burn to a dual layer dvd when the iso is below dvd5 size?10:11
HinHinso basicly the computer is offline10:11
BernardBrosebuntu, command not found?10:11
astro76foo: you would be best served waiting until april to upgrade to 8.0410:11
simplgprince_jammys, I want the content of the line with according to number10:11
crediblefoo: it will be possible to upgrade directly to hardy once it is released10:11
astro76foo: otherwise you have to go through each version10:11
simplgprince_jammys, I want the content of the line according to number10:11
HinHinsudo apt-get autoremove or autoclean don't work, also apt-get remove -f doesn't work10:11
alanbshepard70HinHin: Download the dependancies on a internet connected computer and transfer the files to the computer with no net access10:12
rosebuntu__install mencorder10:12
alanbshepard70credible: Most likely yes.10:12
HinHinalanbshepard70, i have the offline deb files... but apt-get is telling me to apt-get install -f10:12
HinHinto resolve some depencies10:12
HinHinthe thing i don't need that stuff10:13
HinHini just to access to apt-get again10:13
prince_jammyssimplg: i dont understand exactly what you need.  you want to output lines that contain a specific text?10:13
crediblealanbshepard70: eh?10:13
alanbshepard70HinHin: you need to put the .deb files in the right spot first. /var/cache/apt/ or sudo apt-get install /home/me/asdf.deb10:13
prince_jammyssimplg: or text pattern?   these questions are difficult to answer if you don't give a good description of what you need, and what your input file looks like -- and what you want to output10:14
HinHinalanbshepard70, so it's not possible to purge the stuff all together?10:14
alanbshepard70credible: sorry I didn't read you correctly. I thought you were asking if you could upgrade to hardy from gutsy. My bad.10:14
HinHini just want a working apt-get10:14
nirmahi all10:14
HinHini don't care about what it's trying to resolve10:15
foocredible: I'd be able to upgrade directly to hardy once it is released.. by directly, you mean, without having to reinstall?10:15
rosebuntu__HinHin / you need internet connection. it's the easiest way to solce the problem10:15
crediblefoo: yes, directly from dapper -> hardy10:15
alanbshepard70HinHin: purge together? I'm not sure what you mean. If you want to install all the files at once you can use sudo apt-get install packagea packageb .... blah10:15
foocredible: hmm. I see. And if I didn't, could I upgrade to fiesty (7.10) right now without having to reinstall?10:15
HinHinthe thing is... XD i need to apt-get working SO i can get the driver installed to get the internet working for that comp rosebuntu10:15
rosebuntu__dapper -> feisty ->gutsy ->hardy10:15
rosebuntu__what next?10:16
simplgprince_jammys, ok. i need to output line in accordance with its number (number of line).10:16
astro76!codenames | rosebuntu__10:16
uboturosebuntu__: Ubuntu has awesome release codenames. See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/DevelopmentCodeNames for more10:16
crediblefoo: you'd have to upgrade to edgy, then feisty, then gutsy10:16
glickhey does anyone have any idea why, my new dell laptop says 15gigs are in use, when i cant see what is taking up that much space?10:16
prince_jammyssimpleg: you just want to add line numbers to every line in the file?10:16
crediblefoo: it will only be supported to go from Dapper to Hardy because they're both LTS releases10:16
Filled-VoidHinHin, Id recommend using the above methods but once I was able to install using the dpkg command. However this wont resolve any dependencies issue so basically it could screw up pretty bad I think. I think the command was dpkg -i but you might want to check here10:16
rosebuntu__ubiotu / thank you10:17
foocredible: right. Yeah, I don't mind to go to edgy, then feisty, then gusty. Should that process go smoothly?10:17
astro76Filled-Void, HinHin, dpkg -i won't screw up, it just won't install if there are unresolved dependencies10:17
gold44is there a command to check the total disk space of a hard drive? df -h only showed formatted partitions10:17
alanbshepard70foo: even if it's possible I wouldn't do it. I think you'd spend more time upgrading and putting things at risk than if you just downloaded and installed a fresh copy of the latest release.10:17
crediblefoo: no, that would take forever10:17
astro76foo: I wouldn't recommend it10:17
HinHinastro76, yup10:18
prince_jammyssimplg if that is what you want, you can do "   cat -n filename "   ---> try for example cat -n /etc/fstab10:18
simplgprince_jammys, sorry. i need to output content of line in accordance with its number (number of line).10:18
Filled-Voidastro76, Yeah but if any of them actually need something youre basically screwed no :x ?10:18
HinHin;_;.. it realy should be a simple thing for apt-get10:18
frogkann mir einer helfen bin neu hier!10:18
astro76foo: the upgrade process in general is working better since feisty10:18
HinHinbasicly people trying to get their drivers working offline are screwed10:18
HinHinif they make a mistake anyway
