astro76artti: update only updates the package info, upgrade updates packages, and dist-upgrade upgrades to the next ubuntu version00:03
nickrudElad: You need to install from the alternate cd, the 8800gt is not suppported by the gutsy video drivers. You have to use the alternate cd, and then do some manual config00:03
j_humphreyabshiffl, how do i use it?00:03
danand_artti - apt-get update just updates the list of packages available for install/upgrade - it does not actually update any of the packages on your system. you need to sudo apt-get update and then sudo apt-get upgrade00:03

abshifflI belive the package for the kde desktop is just kde-desktop00:03
musseIndyGunFreak thanks man i will try now00:03
abshifflso you would use00:03

IndyGunFreakthen choose an icon00:09

nickrudElad: good, I'd not heard of it being done. What did you do?00:22
bAndie91hi all00:22
ompaulartti, that is pretty old and no longer supported - if you used any "helper" tools to do any codec stuff you can be pretty sure your install will break during the upgrade, one leap at a time - for the upgrade you would have downloaded many isos and burnt them by the time you get to upgrade each distro level and if it breaks badly on you - you need to reinstall the disk you have, pretty horrific methinks00:22
astro76artti: you're running 4.10 now?00:22

kibbi can change the font in Appearance Preferences but not the default colour00:24
nickrudElad: yes, you'll want to resize the windows partition. But, before you do that defrag the windows disk, and backup00:24
iceswordsnkmad, why not manage it youself00:24
astro76artti: with all the downloading the many upgrades would need to do, if you can even upgrade from that old anymore.. you'd be better off downloading the latest iso00:25

lytej0hng4lt: best practise would be to (as root) set the owner of that directory to your user and the group as the apache user00:31
lytes group00:31
neil_dj_humphrey: OK, there are two ways this can be done, you can register with a free DNS provider, to get a name like http://jow.dyndns.org (or many others) or you can use http://273.132,12,11, you will also need to alter the config of the modem/router so it knows to which computer to seed accesses to port 80 and 443 to.00:31

FourX4Luvnj0hng4lt: edit /etc/groups and add your username after the entry for www-data00:33
IndyGunFreakBodomLaw: does everything else download good?00:33
astro76j0hng4lt: it's pointless if you make it owned by jason:jason00:33
FourX4Luvnj0hng4lt: You'll have to log out and back in for the changes to be seen00:33
Feriladsmayes3: yeah i did set it up as you said but instead of booting it just flashes back to XP welcome screen. (I burned my disc in 8x)00:33

Dr_Willisheartsblood,  widgets, desklets, applets,  gdesklets00:34
IndyGunFreak!gdesklets | heartsblood00:35

spudratic0thanks all and pan I think you gave me enought to go on thank you00:35
BodomLawyes i am00:35
LjLj0hng4lt: i'm not entirely sure why ubuntu comes with /var/www owner by root:root by default... but what you should do, i think, is make it owned by root:www-data, and add your user to the www-data group00:35

IndyGunFreakto have 4 masters00:35
FourX4LuvnDranDane_: ext3 is ext2 with journaling.. basically00:35
Dr_WillisDranDane_,  ext3 has a journel and so is a little more reliable.00:35

j_humphreyneil_d, im still here, i was just setting up my dns00:38
Dr_WillisFerilad,  well you need to burn the iso to a cd properly.00:38
Dr_WillisFerilad,  or use some other method to install.00:38
LjLi'll answer my own question... www-data. but i don't know about the group00:38
nickrudastro76: the idea behind the www-data owner is about allowing apache to write to /var/www , not about users. Usuall 755 permissions, no group write00:39

FourX4LuvnOk guys.. I have a problem.  I do lots of work with remote X.  Running several X servers on my workstation and running remote apps from several different computers.. All this wasn't a problem until I was tasked with doing the same thing with a Mac OS X machine.  I can't seem to find any information where the Mac is the one serving the applications.  Anyone have any resources they could point me to?00:42
dasickisj_humphrey: Is there a command that allows you to find out a person's interface?00:42
dasickisj_humphrey: like mine is eth1 but is it different on different PCs00:43
dasickisj_humphrey: or is it always eth1?00:43

israfilwhats a good IDE C++ for linux/ubuntu00:44
iceswordartti, then whois my ip00:44
dasickisFourX4Luvn: Basically I need something to figure out all the wireless networks they can see00:44
FourX4Luvndasickis: Then perhaps write it to take the interface as an argument.  The wireless interface is not always second.  It may be first, it may be third.00:44

israfilkdevelop is that for kde?00:46

neil_dj_humphrey: do you want automatic update of the DNS when your IP changes, or will you do it manually ?00:46
FourX4Luvndasickis: Well, it depends on how you want to write the program.  you could write it to take the interface as an argument on the command line.. Or have it prompt them at the right time.. Or write a preferences panel...00:47

FourX4Luvnartti: Best guess.. he's from somewhere near Hanoi00:52
crimsun_FourX4Luvn: if you /must/ have traceroute, there're the paris-traceroute, tcptraceroute, traceproto, traceroute-nanog, and mtr packages to consider.00:52
crimsun_FourX4Luvn: of those, likely traceroute-nanog is your better bet.00:53

cwillupros977, basic usage is as simple as "cssh host1 host2 host3 host4"01:04

FlannelLiono_: Like I said, the script will run at boot, and runs constantly regardless of anyone being logged in or not.  It will run as whatever user you set it up to run as, and assuming thats not the user, they won't be able to fiddle with it.01:06

taliseinHi, one of my RAID devices failed recently and I replaced it. But now every reboot the computer does not create the /dev/sdc1 device and the RAID needs to be reassembled.01:44
IndyGunFreakupdating from 5.04, to 5.10, then 6.06, then 6.10, then 7.04, then 7.10, willb e problematic at best, and will probably take freaking forever(if it even works).. it will be quicker to download a gutsy cd, burn it, and install from it.01:44
arttiIndyGunFreak: i can't burn on CD, can't do floppy install, any other choices to get directly gutsy01:44
IndyGunFreakwhy can't you burn a CD?01:45
dabbillany one got an idea why movie player wont keep sound and video sync when playing DVD's i have to pause and play the movie every 15mins or so to resync it.01:45
maybeway36artti: try the mini.iso01:45
arttiIndyGunFreak: i have old computer.01:45
taliseinyou can install via usb drive if your computer will boot off one01:46
IndyGunFreakmaybeway36: but if he can't burn a CD, how will that work.01:46
IndyGunFreakartti: how old?01:46
arttiIndyGunFreak: i don't know. I got it free. 8Gb, 500Mhz, 256 RAM01:46
neil_dtalisein: I have heard that a RAID rebuild can take a long time, has the rebuild finished before you turn the computer off.01:46
arttimaybeway36: mini.iso?01:46
taliseinneil_d, yes, I have let the reassembly finish several times before rebooting.01:47
IndyGunFreakartti: ok..,  i think you'd still need to burn a cd for the mini-iso, but i could be wrong01:47
ubuntufreakI have an error using the VirtualBox in Ubuntu 7.10 as it needs to add vboxusers how do i do it01:47
IndyGunFreakartti: so you don't have a CD drive, or its broken, or what?01:47
foibleshi there01:47
neil_dtalisein: how about the controller are you sure its OK ?01:48
arttiIndyGunFreak: i have cd drive01:48
maybeway36you could get the kernel and initrd off the mini.iso and put it on some other media01:48
IndyGunFreakoh ok, it doesn't burn01:48

heartsbloodis it possible, when installing a package from apt, to automatically install recommended packages as well?01:48
heartsbloodsorry wrong window01:48
taliseinneil_d, I think the controller is fine. When I manually reassemble the RAID I can read files off of it fine01:48
maybeway36artti: are you going to install it ona that has internet access01:49
maybeway36*on a computer01:49
arttimaybeway36: yes01:49
prince_jammysheartsblood: mmm aptitude does this, but i think apt-get doesn't01:49
IndyGunFreakartti: maybe you could try a debian net install,01:49
maybeway36artti: you should try unetbootin01:49
maybeway36it supports ubuntu, debian, etc.01:49
maybeway36ill find the url01:50
heartsbloodprince_jammys, thanks I didn't realize there was a difference01:50
arttimaybeway36: i tried before, but then there was problem with dnsmasq.conf01:50

I did an apt-get update && upgrade yesterday... I'm thinking that may have something to do with this. I tested RAM, no errors after 5 passes. I tried 3 keyboards, same error on all (broke one due to frustration). Any ideas on this? I'm out of ideas. If I boot into win02:24

Dr_willisbzaks,  theres an nvidia gui config tool that can enable the Twinview and other settings.02:29
Narlzac85My onboard sounds stopped working a while back (probably broken), so I've been using Microsoft Lifechat USB headset for sound. It only works in Totem and Exaile (probably rythmbox too, I forget). My question is this: Do you guys think that 8.04's new sound system will fix this issue for me? I have the headset set as the default output in sound settings, but I'm guessing that the applications that work are all using GStreamer02:29
Dr_willisbzaks,  use 'sudo nvid<tab>' to see what ones are installed.. IF you have the nvidia drivers isntalled they should beinstalled also02:29
bzaksGot the nvidia-glx-new installed. So I should just look for the nvid02:30
Fareis there a minimal netinstall CD, as in debian?02:30

Jahromeok nigels thanks for help and everyone else too :)(03:17

NemesisDRcommander, none03:19
eltuxBarryToeman: thanks, I'll try it out with my website03:19
NigelSLeechzilla: it means that your NTFS partition is marked as dirty - that is to say it wasn't cleanly unmounted - either the machine was hard reset or something crashed03:19
FourX4LuvnLeechzilla: That means that the NTFS partition was not shut down cleanly.03:19
NemesisDRcommander, at least not on the router end, maybe its set somewhere on the eee's end?03:19
BagelMasterNo matter what media player I use, all my music always skips when I do a process on the computer, is there a very low-resource player that I haven't tried (I've tried Banshee, Rhythmbox, and XMMS), or a way to fix this?03:19

RB2BagelMaster, is this a desktop or a notebook?03:20
amenadoLeechzilla-> i wonder if that kind of error is something to do with your xp having shutdown improperly, some people here mentioned that, while mounting an ntfs, it fails because xp was not shutdown properly03:20

Jahromeonm got synaptic gonna see if that bombs03:26
danbhfiverhineheart_m: what do you mean newly installed?03:26
RcommanderNemesisD, go to synaptic, and search for backport and get the latest backport modules, AFTER you have enabled them int he software sources pack03:26
Jahromeomaybe its just my adept manager that sux03:26
danbhfivespaghetti_knife: fg03:26

Dr_willisJahromeo,  i wouldnt even bother trying to remove adept. - Just use synaptic if you perfer it03:28
RcommanderNemesisD, no laptop-netconf is a completely different thing that does not ship with ubuntu but helps with certain WiFI connections03:28

danbhfiverhineheart_m: no big deal, I might accidentally ignore you.  deborphan will identify which packages are orphaned.  A base install is simple the package ubuntu-server.   So, anything that is orphaned other than ubuntu-server can go, to get back to a vanilla install03:38
amenadojuank_prada-> maybe you have to look into your bios to disable/re-enable it03:38
NemesisDRcommander, what exactly did that do?03:38

twavisi need a boot disk to boot off of a usb drive that's not supported by my bios.. is this possible?03:40
FourX4Luvnkhaotik: You could try checking out http://www.linux-laptop.net/ and see if your laptop model is listed.  There may be some advice on how to get the camera working.03:40
danbhfiverhineheart_m: yeah, the original state is when you only have ubuntu-server installed, and all the packages it depends on03:40
RcommanderNemesisD, Honestly...don't know...but it worked for some...someone else here had suggested that to me...03:40
juank_pradaamenado: so far this is what i got from that command ->http://pastebin.com/m5677370d03:40
eekranofreafdsh, thats the same version I'm using- I tried using a later release and had the same problem-03:40
NemesisDRcommander, works for me :P are you an eee user as well? if so, how are you liking it03:41
rhineheart_mdanbhfive: that's great! at least I will not be spending most of my time formatting the disk03:41
Farewill ubuntu work with 256MB of memory?03:41
snkmadjack-desktop i run virtualbox here, whats your problem?03:41
mjw-BagelMaster what I suspect is happening (at least partially) is that the non-direct rendering is taking a heavy toll on your performance. Any sort of window operation will be painful without direct rendering, especially on a slower computer03:41
FourX4Luvntwavis: Nope.. Afraid that before you boot, the BIOS is all you have, so if it doesn't support the drive, you're kind of SOL03:41
danbhfiverhineheart_m: and you should make sure to have a kernel installed to, like the linux-generic meta package, though there may be a server one03:41
BagelMastermjw- http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/56296/03:41

freafdsheekrano What can I do to get a "kernel match"?03:41
NemesisDRcommander, sd cards are extremely cheap these days i hear03:41
eekranofreafdsh, i think you'd have to recompile the kernel- but I'm actually not too sure to be honest.03:41
Fareis 256MB low memory these days?03:42
rhineheart_mdanbhfive: so how to do i03:42
mjw-Fare relatively... ;)03:42
danbhfiverhineheart_m: well, play with deborphan, the gtkorphan package is easy, im afraid the cli version is more difficult to use, and I can't help ya, since I've never done it03:42
freafdshAh, ok.03:42
* Fare remembers the bad old days when 8MB was a lot03:42
gretsch_drumscan anyone recommend a good AGP nvidia card to use with ubuntu?03:42
Dr_willis256mb ram - is uber low. :)03:42

eekranofreafdsh, If I attempt it again and get it I'll be sure to let you know... but I'm just happy I'm not stuck with nv anymore!03:42
freafdshWhat is the latest nvidia driver that works with your 2.6.22-14-generic kernel?03:42
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about winbind - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi03:42
amenadojuank_prada-> it looks like you system recognized it as an input device like a keyboard or a mouse03:42
Dr_willisgretsch_drums,  depends on your budget.  - Id track down one with a fanless design if gettting a new card.03:42
rhineheart_mdanbhfive: is that something with GUI?03:43
gretsch_drumsi have a 6200 with 128mb ram, and no fan03:43
freafdsheekrano did you get better compiz fusion performance after updating the driver?03:43
Dr_willisgretsch_drums,  they got some in the under $40 range - or at leas tthey yuse to03:43

danbhfiverhineheart_m: gtkorphan is the gui front end to deborphan03:43
jack-desktopsnkmad, is there any chance it'll mess up my harddrive at all03:43
gretsch_drumsbut the 6200 doesn't work well at all in ubuntu03:43
eekranofreafdsh, absolutely-03:43
rhineheart_mdanbhfive: but how about if I will not be using GUI... i just want the server be accessed through ssh03:43
amenadojuank_prada-> i dont know, i dont own  a laptop nor a video camera03:44
gretsch_drumsthe menus don't get rendered and the desktop is extremely sluggish03:44
gretsch_drumsthe 5500 is PCI03:44
RcommanderNemesisD, ya they do, but i thought the eee cant support SDHC cards, maybe(i hope) i am wrong03:44
snkmadjack-desktop no, its all virtual, the hdd from virtual machines are just files inside your real HDD03:44
freafdshdamnit eek, I will not rest until I find a way to update this driver!03:44
juank_pradaamenado: oh.. ok thanks for your help :)03:44
mjw-BagelMaster do you happen to know how much video memory you have03:44
eekranofreafdsh, you should be getting good performance too if you're using nvidia instead of nv03:44
FourX4Luvnrhineheart_m: then look at orphaner03:44
snkmadjack-desktop i do have winxp installed virtualbox here, works just fine03:44
danbhfiverhineheart_m: you are going to have to use google, or ask someone else, because I don't know.  Sorry03:44
NemesisDRcommander, im not sure, i havent looked into it too extensively, im gonna try to keep mine pretty light03:44
BagelMastermjw- Not offhand03:44
FourX4Luvnrhineheart_m: it's curses based, if I recall.  Doesn't require X anyway, whatever it uses.03:44
RcommanderNemesisD, awesome hey i gotta run i'll catch ya later03:45
* Rcommander is away03:45
NemesisDRcommander, have a nice evening, thx for the help03:45
RcommanderNemesisD, you are very welcome!03:45

gretsch_drumsor problems with the 6200 nvidia card?03:45
freafdsheekrano in xorg.conf it says "nvidia", does that mean I am not using nv?03:45
mjw-BagelMaster since it's scrolled off now, could you pastebin the results of lspci -vvv   ? (warning: it's going to be a lot)03:46
FourX4Luvnrhineheart_m: Yeah.. I just checked it out again.. it's curses based.  No X requirements, but still nice and easy to use.03:46
rhineheart_mFourX4Luvn<<<< May I know how orphaner works?03:46
eekranofreafdsh, right. what do you get with glxgears?03:46
rhineheart_mFourX4Luvn: how and for what use is it about?03:46
mjw-BagelMaster one of your problems MAY be that you are running short of video memory, which could cause direct rendering to not function03:46
freafdsh3137, with compiz fusion running03:46
BagelMastermjw- http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/56297/03:47
FourX4Luvnrhineheart_m: Once it's installed you run 'sudo orphaner' and it gives you a curses based view of what packages are orphaned.  You select which ones to remove and hit 'ok'03:47
freafdsheekrano 3137 with compiz fusion running03:47
mjw-BagelMaster and again a lack of direct rendering is going to take a big performance hit on a slower machine03:47
rhineheart_mFourX4Luvn: is there a way to do is via ssh?03:47

StarnestommyPKdoR: if that was the only command you ran on it, it isn't installed04:09
AtomicSpark@chrisb use a server cd or a ubuntu dvd. both have server install options. i would use server cd because it has the install LAMP optoin which qiuckly sets it up04:09
mjw-BagelMaster the only other thing I can suggest is DefaultDepth 8  ....but then you're going to end up with only 256 colors :/04:09
chrisb_i'm in the process of making the cd04:09
PKdoRStarnestommy, so I just extracted i?04:09
FourX4Luvnchrisb_: Well.. y ou just need to download the iso, burn it to a CD, put the CD in the drive, and reboot your computer.  As long as your BIOS is set to boot from a CD drive, it will find it and start the install04:09
StarnestommyPKdoR: looks like it04:09
rhineheart_mnatlinuxnewb: I have CD actually... But m asking if it would be possible to use another PC in the LAN that has CD drive shared over the network...04:10
chrisb_i've got a server with multiple hard drives, will the cd be able to handle that?04:10
FourX4Luvnrhineheart_m: Yes, if that other computer has an ftp server running on it, you could do an ftp install that way.04:10
jordanjay29Ok, I think I found a guide here: http://myunko.wordpress.com/2008/02/15/vmware-mouse-scroll-on-ubuntu/ What do I need to do to reload the x config? Just reboot, or do I need to input any commands?04:10

fancyethan961, evince is what i have..but there are problems :P04:12
AtomicSpark@chrisb_ hardware raid is best, but if you're installing this on a non-server computer (you dont have a RAID controller), you should beable to set it up in custom partitioning. I've only messed with LVM myself. It's not fault-tolerant but it groups harddrives together.04:12
chrisb_with the raid, or the whole install?04:12
jordanjay29(DKDTA): http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Dapper#Windows Might help you04:13
PKdoRchrisb_, with raid04:13
notyetahey, all, i have 2G physical memory, should set the swap size to 4G?04:13
PKdoRchrisb_, What raid are you using?04:13
KlrSp1notyeta: nah... try 512m04:13
notyetawhy 512M?04:13
KlrSp1notyeta: the point of that much ram is to hopefully never touch swap04:13
DKDTADoes anyone know if I can use Ubuntu to help recover files from my broken Windows harddrive? I want to try doing this with the Ubuntu boot disk04:14
DaZ imo at this amount of memory, swap partition is useless04:14
Starnestommynotyeta: 1GB to 4GB of swap should be fine04:14
chrisb_i'm not sure yet04:14
notyetathe offical say that the swap size should 2*your physical memory04:14
avisnotyeta, i would do 4GB myself04:14

notyetai only need 3 part, one is / and swap and /boot04:18
notyetathe size is/ 40G swap 2G /boot 200M04:18
nickrudnotyeta: you don't need /boot , and separating home is a good idea04:18
mjw-BagelMaster ignore anything he says regarding mach64 files, modules in the first post....the M3 is not mach64 based04:19
chrisb_@AtomicSpark  i know, but i don't think i'll need both drives for now, but i'd like to make sure i have a backup if something goes down04:19
notyetaur...i should have a try04:19
notyetabut i think all part in a subarea of /04:20
mjw-BagelMaster that 1400x1050 screen must have been quite the premium option back when that laptop was purchased though04:20
AtomicSpark@chrisb_ its a good way to keep your system running. just remember it only prevents harddrive failure. not against viruses (ha), deleted files, or basically any software failure.04:20
AtomicSpark@chrisb_ the only real solution is backups!04:20
nickrudnotyeta: the /boot and /home would be, but having /home separate is useful for using it with other installs, or for backups, or reinstalls04:20
chrisb_@AtomicSpark  true that\04:20
AtomicSpark@chrisb_ whats this server for? just learning linux?04:20
xinxhey how can I give permissions to a folder can someone help me please?04:20
BagelMastermjw- lol, I got it for free when an accounting firm in town packed up04:21
nickrudxinx: depends, either chmod or chown04:21
chrisb_@AtomicSpark  it may end up as a web server, but for now it's just something to play with04:21

xinxbut I dont know how does it works :/04:22
FourX4Luvnchrisb_: AtomicSpark is right.  If it were me.. personally, I wouldn't do raid.. I'd just keep one drive for backups and implement a good backup plan.. One where you can have a few versions around just in case (for the accidentally deleted file, etc as AtomicSpark mentioned)04:22
AtomicSpark@chrisb_ i would use the LAMP option. i have had troubles getting mysql to work on other distros post-installation.04:22
xinxI want to write04:22
benanzoI'm considering a PS3 as a MythBuntu frontend04:22
nickrudnotyeta: then do   / 10gb , 2xram to 2gb for swap, and the rest for /home . A very standard partitioning04:22
BagelMastermjw- 2002 I believe, with all the insider trading and other back room schemes the firm was doing, I wouldn't doubt they outfitted themselves with the most expensive at the time04:22
chrisb_@AtomicSpark   what exactly is the LAMP option?04:22
not_guiltyhi folks04:22
benanzoI need WPA2 wifi, remote control, USB disk access, s-video out, and stereo sound04:22
benanzowill all this work?04:22
notyetaokay, thanks, need i have the swap part?04:22
mjw-BagelMaster sadly they didn't get a laptop that could do direct rendering in linux in 2008 with a screen of that resolution ;)04:22
natlinuxnewbI have just installed 7.10. Why does the startup freeze (or seems to freeze - I can still hear the HD spinning) at "Running local boot scripts (/etc/rc.local)"?04:23
BagelMastermjw- I actually chuckled out loud at that one.04:23
nickrudnotyeta: it doesn't hurt, it's used to hold running programs that aren't in use.04:23
FourX4Luvnchrisb_: Then have a look at http://www.debianadmin.com/backup-and-restore-your-ubuntu-system-using-sbackup.html for a pretty cool little gui app for setting up backups04:23
AtomicSpark@chrisb_ its ubuntu's famous "15 min LAMP install" or something. LAMP stands for linux apache mysql and php. it sopposed to install all 4 and have them configured properly to prevent problems by doing it manually04:23
chrisb_@FourX4Luvn  if it doesn't already have a RAID card in it, i probably won't set up RAID, and i'll save some processor time04:23
notyetasorry, where is the boot part?04:23
nickrudnotyeta: leaving more actual memory for programs you are using. Speeds up the machine, lets you run more stuff04:23
nickrudnotyeta: you don't need /boot , it will be on /04:24
mjw-BagelMaster it appears that the M3 is just underpowered for it.. :/04:24
chrisb_@AtomicSpark    ok, I'll definitely check into that04:24
DaZxinx: chmod o+w -R should give write premission for an owner to every file in the folder04:24
AtomicSpark@chrisb_ raid controllers are independent of cpu. thats why they're big and cost a lot of money. :P04:24
xinxty :)04:24
mjw-BagelMaster i suspect that's at least 50% the cause of the skipping, possibly coupled with the...uh...not-so-goodness of the ESS chipsets back in the day04:24
balzacI have a problem04:24
FourX4Luvnchrisb_: I've performed the LAMP install a couple times, and AtomicSpark is right.. it's a breeze to install.  Does take longer than 15 minutes, on my hardware anyway.. but it's still a nice install method.04:24
chrisb_@AtomicSpark  i've installed Apache MySql and PHP on other systems before, is there some incompatability with ubuntu?04:24
nickrudnotyeta: back when, you had to have the kernel at the beginning of the drive, that's why people would use a separate /boot. Not necessary any more04:24
AtomicSpark@chrisb_ now the onboard "controller" found on most motherboards will use a cpu time i think but we're comparing personal computers to servers now.04:25
notyetaur... it's /10G swap 4G /home 26G04:25

AtomicSpark@chrisb_ not that i know of. just supposed to make it easier.04:25
chrisb_@AtomicSpark   i'm not sure they'd eat as much time as a software raid04:25

balzacAll my keys work, but there are moments in which keystrokes won't be registered.04:25
xinxthank you it worked :D04:26
AtomicSpark@chrisb_ software raid is a joke. maybe MAYBE to make your harddrive bigger. if you lose your OS, you lose everything.04:26
notyetaur..that's /10G swap 2G /home 28G right?04:26
nickrudnotyeta: that's a good layout04:26
chrisb_@AtomicSpark   which is why i wouldn't use it04:26

chrisb_@mjw-    how would i go about doing that?04:32
FourX4LuvnAtomicSpark: The rar love is from the windows world.  One of the best, halfway widely supported compression algorithms04:32

ElMasInexpertoshi all! I have just intalled Ubuntu 7.10 on a laptop, but the Operating system does not have all the drivers for the hardware (the scren or video card, for example). How can I say to system that it must search new drivers on line?04:33
AtomicSpark@chrisb_ you might have it if you install xgl i needed that package to get it to work.04:33
FourX4LuvnAtomicSpark: And of course, it's more widely supported for us ;-)04:34
mjw-chrisb_ yeah, you'll need the so-called 'fglrx' driver to get that going - were you prompted by the restricted drivers manager?04:34
bazhangElMasInexpertos: what card04:34
AtomicSpark@FourX4Luvn well I use it now. :P04:34
amenadoElMasInexpertos-> you did not try the liveCD first to see how it looks and feel?04:34
rkjhello, I have a question - I have an ubuntu 7.10 system that I use with gnome.  A week ago somebody suggested I install the kde-desktop package and then I could use either one by just selecting an option at login.  I did that and discovered I really like kde; but when I went back to gnome, all my desktop icons had disappeared, and my keyboard didn't work. A system reboot fixed it, but I'm wondering if any of you wizards might know why.04:35
AtomicSpark@chrisb_ read this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompositeManager/CompizFusion04:35
chrisb_@mjw-    no04:35
AtomicSpark@chrisb_ then use synaptic package manager to find xserver-xgl just search for xgl and you'll find it04:35
bazhangrkj you mean the kubuntu-desktop package?04:35
ElMasInexpertosYes amenado, I tried it, but I was thinking that maybe I could upgrade the hardware after the installation04:35
AtomicSpark@chrisb_ logout and log in and everything should work.04:35
rkjbazhang yes, from synaptic package manager04:35
mjw-chrisb_ you may want to hunt around the ubuntu forums...you'd have to install the ATI driver from their website to get acceleration going for sure.04:36
rkjbazhang it changed my splash page to say kubuntu04:36
bazhangrkj what splash screen loads kubuntu?04:36
AtomicSpark@chrisb_ restricted driver @ xgl package will get 3d acceleration working for you04:36
amenadoElMasInexpertos-> you can try to upgrade, just do  apt-get upgrade04:36
EchoBinaryis there a how-to on installing xen as a Dom0 on a ubuntu (xubuntu)  desktop environment? all the tutorials assume a server environment...04:36
EchoBinary..that i have found, anywyas04:37
mjw-AtomicSpark his card is so recent the restricted driver manager's version of it may even be too old - he wasn't prompted by it04:37
chrisb_@AtomicSpark   i have the restricted driver program loaded already, just not the xgl package04:37
nickrudchrisb_: if you have to use the driver from the ati wesite (that is, if AtomicSpark's advice doesn't work because it's a really new card) http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Gutsy_Installation_Guide is good04:37
rkjbazhang I get the same splash screen either way, but it's probably not important04:37
chrisb_@nickrud  thanks04:37
AtomicSpark@echobinary i recommend  KVM/QEMU for client messingsaround with virtual machines04:38
bazhangrkj you want pure gnome, pure kde or a mix of both using some apps from each04:38
AtomicSpark@echobinary https://help.ubuntu.com/community/KVM it will be installed by default in next release of ubuntu04:38
EchoBinaryAtomicSpark: what makes it more advisable than Xen?04:38
ElMasInexpertosamenado: I did it and nothing changed04:38
AtomicSpark@ EchoBinary Xen and VMware are hypervisors. they take over your host os and run everything on top of it. KVM is included in the linux binary and gives direct access to the hardware. it lets your guest os control resources of the VM04:40
mjw-chrisb_ ah, in that case, the xgl-server package would help04:40
amenadoElMasInexpertos-> nothing changed? nothing was downloaded?04:40
eltuxdoes anyone know a way to have side button functionality on their mouse in Ubuntu?04:41
AtomicSpark@chrisb_ it's xserver-xgl, i just checked :D04:41
eltuxi miss it04:41
jordancan i add the server features to the desktop version?04:41
amenadojordan yes, which feature are you after to serve?04:41
AtomicSpark@ jordan. yes. just add the packages you want via the synaptic package manager.04:41
nickrudchrisb_: before you install the xserver-xgl, run   fglrxinfo  and make sure it's using the ati 8.37.6 driver , and run  glxinfo | grep direct to make sure you have direct rendering04:41
bazhangjordan you mean have a server but with a gui?04:41
ElMasInexpertosamenado: There were many files downloaded, but the drivers were not updated....04:41
EchoBinaryAtomicSpark: is there a performance difference?04:41
chrisb_@nickrud ok04:42
nickrudjordan: absolutely04:42
jordanno. i mean have a gui with server features04:42
FourX4Luvneltux: do a search for zaxismapping on google.  Lots of information out there to help you.04:42
rkjbazhang I guess I could choose one or the other and stick with it, but it would be nice to just be able to switch back and forth04:42
chrisb_@AtomicSpark  i found the ATI drivers package  (xgl)04:42
amenadoElMasInexpertos-> maybe it have, which directory where you looking at for the drivers?04:42
jordani have ubuntu desktop installed and i want to add the server features on top of it04:42
eltuxFourX4Luvin: I have btnx installed for my mouse but it aint working quite right04:42
bazhangrkj so you want a pure gnome and a pure kde side by side, or like the mix04:42
AtomicSpark@ echobinary kvm is relatively new. i am not sure which is "faster" now. I never used Xen since KVM is preferred by ubuntu.04:42
SnurglewozzleQuestion: I'm having big problems after trying Xubuntu (bad idea) and then trying to remove it and return to "straight" Ubuntu.  Can I simply reinsall Ubuntu and NOT lose 30gb or so worth of movie files I've copied onto this server?04:42
jordanlike apache and stuff04:43
nickrudjordan: I run apache, mysql, ssh server on my laptop04:43
rkjbazhang there are definitely some nice apps that come with kde and I now have access to them in gnome04:43
ElMasInexpertosamenado: I just used apt-get upgrade and also I reboot the system...04:44
ElMasInexpertosI did not do more04:44
eltuxFourX4Luvn: I have an MX Revolution and it seems like I've been down this road before04:44
FourX4Luvnjordan: 'sudo apt-get install apache204:44
AtomicSpark@ echobinary here is a random performance thing i found. of course i never trust these things. http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=623&num=104:44
SmegzorI set Nautilus to preview sounds, but it only ever did that when my Ubuntu was new.  Why would that feature not work anymore?04:44
NemesisDanyone happen to know what the ubuntu background manager does with wallpapers? does it copy them somewhere? is there some sort of flat file that stores their settings?04:44
ZeddieSnurglewozzle: have you got your media files on another partition?04:44
tanathwhen i click the show desktop button with compiz running, it shunts the windows out of the way instead of minimizing them. how do i fix that?04:44
SnurglewozzleZeddie: no04:44
AtomicSpark@ echobinary here is a comparison http://www.gridvm.org/xen-vs-kvm.html04:44
ZeddieSnurglewozzle: if you don't then you might want to look into splitting your existing partition :)04:44
bazhangtanath in the ccsm plugins04:45
SnurglewozzleGOOD idea, zeddie04:45
tanathbazhang, i've been looking04:45
nickrudNemesisD: it creates and tracks pointers to the files, it doesn't copy them anywhere. If you move the picture, the wallpaper handler won't be able to find it04:45
notyetai met the problem again, should i set the /home to extend part or primary part?04:45
amenadoElMasInexpertos-> which driver are you looking for exactly?04:45
ZeddieSnurglewozzle: i think it's parted that does it but I could be wrong :)04:45
NemesisDnickrud, well thats silly...04:45
bazhangtanath they disappear? completely gone?04:45
amenadonotyeta  it does not matter, your choice04:45
FourX4Luvneltux: Perhaps look here then?  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=272702504:45
SnurglewozzleI just wish I could do a "repair" installation of ubuntu...  isn't that possible?04:46
nickrudnotyeta: you create an extended, then a logical inside the extended. That's the one that would be /home04:46
ElMasInexpertosamenado: wifi card (i'm searching the exact name of it)04:46
AtomicSparkman ubuntu 8.04 alpha 4 takes forever to install in kvm04:46
tanathbazhang, i have most effects and stuff turned off. i can't find what's doing this. i haven't enabled it deliberately, and it didn't always do this04:46
ZeddieSnurglewozzle: hmm good question04:46
nickrudNemesisD: not really, it allows you to use pictures from anywhere almost04:46
tanathbazhang, it just pushes them off the screen04:46
notyetathat's say the /home should be extended part?04:46
eltuxFourX4Luvn: I already have it and I'm lost with it04:46
amenadoElMasInexpertos-> did it work while on the liveCD ?04:46
ZeddieSnurglewozzle: kinda like a dist-upgrade?04:46
Smegzorhmm..  maybe it was kde that had that feature?  oh well..04:46
bazhangtanath still not clear on what the issue is--they windows are gone and closed, or just cant locate them04:46
nickrudnotyeta: it would be the logical partition. Create an exented, then a logical.04:46
sin|g|_\join #programming04:46
ZeddieI'm not quite sure how you'd do that across branches04:47
NemesisDi guess04:47
SnurglewozzleYou know, just fix the startup problems04:47
FourX4Luvneltux: Ok, well I'm afraid I can't help you then.  I don't have side buttons anymore even.  (My mouse died! *sniff*)04:47
SnurglewozzleI can't get past the initial screens without hitting "OK"04:47
nickrudnotyeta: the extended partition is a trick to let you have more than 4 partitions04:47
Snurglewozzleman, DO NOT install xubuntu, by the way. impossible to get back out of it without major problems.04:47

Snurglewozzleno exec line in the session file: xcfe 404:47
tanathbazhang, the issue is, they windows should be minimized. it causes issues sometimes... i don't want it to move them, i want it to revert to the original behaviour of minimizing them04:47

Snurglewozzlehow can I find the session file to remove that line from?04:48

bazhangtanath so you want non-compiz behaviour with compiz?04:48
AtomicSpark@ Snurglewozzle Ironic. The guy who pushed me to linux swares by KDE.04:48
tanathbazhang, i've had a couple minor issues because of it04:48
amenadonotyeta  it does not matter, your choice04:48
eltuxnickrud: been down that road, its a MX Revolution, already have btnx installed but not too sure how to configure it. Lost right now :D04:48
notyetaokay, thanks a lot.04:48
bazhangtanath what issues--this sounds more of an annoyance than anything04:48
ElMasInexpertosamenado: no, I didn't but i imagine it can be downloaded and installed from here. it's: AR5006EG 802.11 b/g Wireless PCI Express Adapter04:49
nickrudeltux: ah, one of those. I haven't played with it, don't have one04:49
Snurglewozzlekde might be ok, but xubuntu doesn't install cleanly on top of ubuntu04:49
tanathbazhang, uh, AFAICT every effect has been customizable or easily disabled in compiz. i just can't find this one04:49
eltuxnickrud: I'm totally lost xD04:49
Snurglewozzlehow can I find the session file to remove a trouble-making line?04:49
Snurglewozzlethe error I get on startup is: "no exec line in the session file"04:49
FourX4Luvneltux: Another thought.. dunno if it would work for you or not.. The side buttons only work in firefox even when they do work, isn't that right?04:49
bazhangtanath what is the effect; I will try it04:49
Snurglewozzleno exec line in the session file: xfce 404:49
tanathbazhang, it was more of an annoyance. but do you know how to change this behaviour or not?04:49
nickrudSnurglewozzle: it's probably in ~/.xfce4 (?)04:49
tanathbazhang, click the show desktop button04:50
nickrudSnurglewozzle: that's a directory, look for the session file in there04:50
eltuxnickrud: they don't work at all, I would be happy with basic firefox useage04:50
bazhangtanath I just offered to try it; you dont want help after all?04:50
jimmygoonSo if I want the global_menu like the mac menu hack... do I want the code loaded from google_code repos? or should I actually follow the ubuntu wiki?04:50
rainwalkertanath: what are you trying to do?04:50
amenadoElMasInexpertos-> look around /lib/modules/`uname -r`/04:50
AtomicSpark@Snurglewozzle: Do you think KDE didn't install properly? Did you log into a KDE session?04:50
Snurglewozzleand what do I do -- remove the session file altogether?04:50
SnurglewozzleI'm trying to boot into gnome now so why is taht xfce4 even in there?04:50
tanathrainwalker, when clicking show desktop with compiz, it has started to shunt the windows off the screen instead of minimizing them. i want to return it to the original behaviour04:50
nickrudSnurglewozzle: on the gui login screen, select options->session04:51
FourX4Luvneltux: You could install mouse gesture firefox extension.. it supports something called 'button rocking' or somesuch.. You can go back by clicking right mouse button, left mouse button in quick succession... reverse the procedure for going forward.04:51
AtomicSpark@snugglewozzel i have compiz enabled w/ xserver-xgl it has a custom login session04:51
rainwalkertanath: I think that's the default compiz behavior04:51
Snurglewozzlehmm...  it's set to auto login04:51
tanathrainwalker, wasn't before, but regardless. how do i fix it?04:51
nickrudSnurglewozzle: there's your problem :)04:51
FourX4Luvneltux: Not exactly what you want, but a little better than nothing.. It's what I settled on until I get money for another mouse with side buttons04:51
eltuxFourX4Luvn: Kinda like in Opera, Hrm I'll look into it04:51
Snurglewozzleamoticspark: I installed xubuntu and then tried to uninstall it and now when I boot, I get the error described above and gnome default desktop launches04:51
jack-desktopsnkmad, how do you get out of fullscreen mode in virtualbox?04:52
nickrudFourX4Luvn: that sounds like a seriously geeky hack04:52

kLownishcan anyone help with some nfs issues?04:52
AtomicSparkis there a official irc server url? i'm using irc.ubuntu.com.. it would be nice to have a server with only official rooms.04:53
FourX4Luvnnickrud: Hey.. I didn't write it.. I just think it's a good extension  heh ;-)04:53
bazhangrainwalker: tanath needs to specify the precise plugins he is using before we can resolve this04:53
nickrudSnurglewozzle: the login manager is trying to start the desktop you last used, which was xfce4. But, xfce4 is gone.  Log out, and at the gui options->session->gnome04:53
tanathbazhang, ok, gimme a min04:53
Snurglewozzleah, nickrud04:53
Snurglewozzlegood thought -- I just need to re-enable login04:53
rainwalkertanath: ah...well I never actually noticed that it did it differently, but I don't really use the show desktop thing much. I'll look around some and let you know if I figure anything out04:53

tanathrainwalker, so i'm used to turning them off :P04:56
nickrudkillux: you got two choices: full width, and the width of the icons. Right click, properties04:56
bazhangjscinoz: the restricted drivers manager installed those cards or done manually from the site or 0ther (envy etc)04:56
kLownishand it keeps giving me the same error.04:56
tanathbazhang, rainwalker, thanks guys04:56

Dr_willisrainwalker,  :)05:06
Dr_willisrainwalker,  common mistake.05:06
chrisnWhen I view flash websites in any browser, my whole computer freezes05:06
rainwalkermjw-: apparently I have to use the "exit" command to close it05:06
chrisnI am forced to do a hard reset05:06
mjw-rainwalker ah....yeah, i always use exit...probably why I've not encountered that problem :)05:06
bazhangchrisn just the one window or several tabs05:06
rainwalkernickrud: I have it fixed now, but what you were saying still didn't work...%emerald never showed up05:06
chrisnbazhang: both05:07
AtomicSparkmounting shares seems iffy. i would just stick with adding the share to your places :\05:07
rainwalkerwow, it's crazy how ugly my desktop looks without shadows...05:07
FourX4Luvnrainwalker: ctrl+d at the prompt works too, and saves you some keystrokes :)05:07
mjw-!ot > BaconBits05:07
bazhangchrisn you have the newest non-free flash plugin?05:07
chrisnbazhang: yes05:07
bazhangBaconBits: #gentoo ;]05:07
BaconBitsGentoo is just plain better than ubuntu05:07
nickrudrainwalker: hm, I do that here regularly. Once for a very important thing I backgrounded and pressed the wrong window's close button.05:07
AtomicSpark... need a "do not let stupid user close window" option05:08
bazhangchrisn when installed05:08
mjw-chrisn you haven't installed gnash have you?05:08
FourX4Luvnlol AtomicSpark05:08
chrisnbazhang: no05:08
bazhangBaconBits: not a lucky place to say that05:08
chrisnbazhang: I even tried unistalling and installing the plugin straight from adobe05:08
BaconBitsbazhang: yes it is.05:08
bazhangchrisn when did you install it05:08
chrisnmjw-:  no05:08
bazhangBaconBits: stop05:08
chrisnbazhang: a few hours ago05:09
bazhangBaconBits: last warning05:09
AtomicSparkquestion: is there a purpose to the different color names of chat users? I am guessing big bold guy is a mod or something.05:09

harrumphanybody know why parallels doesn't like the 7.10 cd?  installer just prompts to insert a cd, it's in there, filetree's written on it.  did i burn the right iso?05:10
AtomicSparklol @ gentoo05:10
mjw-aw, i kind of liked the ban but no kick. kind of like watching someone stew in their own juices05:10
AtomicSparkhmm. is there a list of the commands?05:10
chrisnbazhang: any ideas on what I should do?05:11
bazhangharrumph: what speed did you burn it at what media did you use, does the cd boot ok not with parallels05:11
Nuke_whats the channel for hardy05:11
FourX4Luvnmjw-: Yes.. the size 12 boot in the rear was sorely needed.. quite a let down05:11

jscinozis copying a ttf font to fonts:// sufficent to install it? or must something else be done05:11
klownishFourX4Luvn: its telling me incorrect fs type.05:11
FourX4Luvnklownish: Did you try smbfs or cifs?05:12
AtomicSparkhardy seems like a good update. i am excited. :D i am installing a vm of alpha 4 now05:12
ctexwhy is there competition between linux distros? They are all free...05:12
FourX4Luvnklownish: Try smbfs05:12
bazhangjscinoz: I always just install via apt-get; did you mean outside the repos? what fonts let me give it a shot as soon as I finish sauerbraten ;]05:12
chrisnI think I am going to have to get rid of ubuntu05:12
chrisnthese hard resets are getting annoying05:12
harrumphbazhang: 1) 24x 2) taiyo uden i think and 3) im gonna find out as soon as this xp box finishes backup05:12
bazhangctex not really ontopic here but just personal preference05:12
killuxhow do you set ubuntu's desktop panels and everything back to default?05:13
DaZctex: SLED of RHEL aren't free :F05:13
fismoll8hello everyone. I'm trying to enable sound when I rdesktop from ubuntu gutsy to my remote windows xp computer. any ideas?05:13
bazhangharrumph: taiyo uden are known to be troublesome from some accounts05:13
rainwalkerchrisn: what's wrong?05:13
supersakoi am contemplating installing ubuntu on my laptop.. #1 is 20gb /, rest for /home a good partition scheme for ubuntu.. #2 can ubuntu be upgrade to future versions without having to reinstall the whole thing (ex. feisty -> gutsy)05:13
FourX4Luvnklownish: smbfs is deprecated on Linux.. but the NAS may still use that type.05:13
mjw-!upgrade > supersako05:13
mjw-supersako the short answer is yes though05:14
rainwalkersupersako: yes, upgrade all you want, but I find that fresh installs are better for me (clear out all my junk)05:14
AtomicSparkDaZ + Ctex, I'd use CentOS if you want RedHat. It's the same thing with the logos and such removed.05:14
jscinozbazhang, just a few various ones im trying to test05:14
chrisnrainwalker: for some reason flash is causing xorg to crash05:14
bazhangsupersako 20GB for / ? seems a bit excessive--if you have a seperate home partition then you can do a fresh install from cd otherwise just upgrade via the net05:14
chrisnrainwalker: I cant figure it out... it is really driving me up the wall05:14
AtomicSpark!search Hardy05:14
ubotuFound: ebox, hardy, heron, queue, ubuntu+1, installhardy, 8.04, final05:14

FourX4Luvnsupersako: You asked those two questions in here a couple hours ago and you were answered.  If you won't listen to the answers you're given, I suggest you quit asking in the first place.05:14
rainwalkerchrisn: bleh I hate flash...05:15
DaZAtomicSpark: indeed, but it doesn't change the fact thah not all distros are free :F05:15
* Symmetria makes note to self, never attempt to rsync data off the net with it saving to an NFS mount, it is a sure way to get linux to twist its panties in a knot05:15
klownishFourX4Luvn: its giving me the same error05:15
chrisnrainwalker: yeah05:15
ctexDaZ, fine, MOST distros are free :P05:15
supersakoFour i know i apologize, but i had to leave after i asked it and it is off my screen now :(05:15
FourX4Luvnklownish: Ok.. What is the make and model of the NAS?05:15
bazhangctex really offtopic here05:15
AtomicSparkDaZ: CentOS is free. Ubuntu is free. I ran out of useful distros.05:15
klownishWD-NetCenter 160gig05:15
DaZAtomicSpark: ArchLinux :x05:15
ctexbashang - sry, I get passionate :(05:15
Symmetriaklownish NAS as in iscsi?05:16
bazhangjoin #ubuntu-offtopic then ctex ;]05:16
AtomicSparklol. okay i give up. how do i point my sentance at someone? like how do you make your name bold and show name:?05:16
ctexbazhang, thanks, didn't know about that05:16
rainwalkerAtomicSpark: you type their nick and then what you want to say to them05:16
FourX4Luvnsupersako: Ok.. Well, yes you can upgrade it as much as you want.. though it's not recommended to upgrade between major version changes (eg. 6.10 -> 7.10)  It works, but it's not always flawless.05:16
chrisnhow do you uninstall the flash plugin from adobe?05:16
bazhangAtomicSpark: tab completion type first three or so letters then hit tab05:16
Symmetriaheh, whats the communication mechanism between the NAS and the box you are using it on?05:16
FourX4Luvnklownish: Ok.. brb05:17
AtomicSparkbazhang: omg tab completion XD05:17
bazhangjscinoz: trying sauerbraten now, just a moment05:17
nickrudAtomicSpark: for you I type  Ato<tab>05:17
jimmygoonWhat is a udeb?05:17
klownishSymmetria: its connected to my router, via cat5 ;/05:17
AtomicSparkthanks. i was typing users by hand :|05:17
klownishif thats what ur asking.05:17
Symmetriaok, so its either an NFS system or an iSCSI system05:17
nickrudjimmygoon: a micro deb, used during installation05:17
killuxhow do you set ubuntu's appearance back to its default?05:17
rainwalkerAtomicSpark: I did that for a couple of months before I found out about tab completion haha05:17
* Symmetria checks05:17
AtomicSparkrainwalker: nice05:17
jimmygoonnickrud, interesting.......05:17
rainwalkerkillux: not sure, but let me know if you find out how05:18
klownishSymmetria: how can i check?05:18
AtomicSparkanyone install ubuntu on ps3 yet? is there a point?05:18
fdafdsaHow can I upgrade to kernel 2.6.24?05:18
harrumphbazhang: yeah this cd is fine. this xp box picks it up.  anybody know why parallels doesn't like 7.10 cd?05:18
rainwalkerharrumph: parallels really isn't that great05:18
PKdoRAtomicSpark: well yes and no05:19
rainwalkerfdafdsa: I think there's some force-version thing you can do with synaptic05:19
fdafdsarainwalker i'll look05:19
nickrudfdafdsa: you'd have to compile it05:19
AtomicSparkPKdoR: some of us are just bored :P still waiting for my Hardy install to finish.05:19
nickrud!kernel | fdafdsa05:19
ubotufdafdsa: The core of the Ubuntu Operating System is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, but if you're convinced you do, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile - For more: /msg ubotu stages05:19
jscinoz!envy > jscinoz05:20
PKdoRAtomicSpark: it looks pretty and runs good it also give your PS3 prety much unlimited capabilities as a media player05:20
rainwalkerPKdoR: are you talking about ubuntu on the ps3?05:20
Symmetriahrm, klownish that looks like CIFS, and errr at this point I must bow out, I've never worked with one of the cheaper NAS's under linux05:20
chrisngah I cant even check gmail05:20
PKdoRrainwalker: yes05:20
AtomicSparkPKdoR: I can't even get DVD's to work on ubuntu (too lazy to install vnc) :P05:21
elshahey guys, would the only reason 'wired connection' isnt showing up on the networking options be because it isnt recognising the network card?05:21
rainwalkerPKdoR: what do you mean it looks pretty? does it look any different than ubuntu? and how does it make such a great media player?05:21
klownishSymmetria: it shows on the web admin it can use NFS and CIFS05:21
FY1If I gpg something on 1 computer and goto decrypt it on another, will it work?05:21
bazhangjscinoz: about 180 fps; sorry but that game rocks--got caught up in it for a minute ;]05:21
AtomicSparkelsha: is enable networking checked when you right click on it?05:21
rainwalkerAtomicSpark: did you install libdvdcss?05:21
klownishbut thats all it allows, just a check box..no other configuring for either.05:22
bazhangwww.medibuntu.org for that AtomicSpark05:22
Symmetriaklownish, if its NFS then on the linux box apt-get nfs-common && mount -t nfs nasip:/ /mnt05:22
Symmetriaand see if it mounts on /mnt05:22
mjw-elsha yes, basically05:22
fdafdsaI have to get kernel 2.6.24 to install nvidia 169.0905:22
rainwalkerarg bazhang you beat me to it :P05:22
PKdoRrainwalker: well not a GREAT meadi played but itsdefinitlly better then the stock PS3 as far as playing avi's and stuff05:22
JangariI changed the mount point of my data partition and everything's fine, except the database for rhythmbox is looking to the old mountpoint for all my music. Is there a way to find the database itself and globally change /home/data to /media/data in every entry?05:22
Symmetriaor mount -t nfs -o rw nasip:/ /mnt05:22
elshai dont remember there being an enable networking checkbox. i'm not in the same room as the computer so it's a bit difficult for me to go check05:22
rainwalkerPKdoR: how so?05:22
elshathe only option that's coming up is modem connection05:22
supersakoFourXLuvn so for example 7.10 -> Edgy when its stable will be flawless right?05:23
mjw-elsha the default ubuntu behavior is to enable any ethernet hardware it sees05:23
fismoll8hello everyone. I'm trying to enable sound when I rdesktop from ubuntu gutsy to my remote windows xp computer. any ideas?05:23
RaelI have a problem with cutting and pasting. this happened in both fedora and ubuntu(which I'm in now.) alot of times highlighting text to copy it, it won't stay highlighted. or right click copy does not save it to the clipboard, only file copy will work05:23
klownishSymmetria: i tried sudo mount -t nfs /media/mp3 and it keeps telling me permission denied.05:23
lalangam just open this site05:23
Jangarielsha, is there a network cable connected?05:23
AtomicSparkPKdoR: PS3 has great audio hardware. pawns my laptop.05:23
rainwalkerRael: can you highlight text and middle-click to paste?05:23
elshajangari, yeah there is, network worked fine when windows was installed05:24
bazhangRael: from where are you cutting and pasting? the terminal?05:24
Raelthe terminal, irc, firefox etc. anywhere05:24
Jangariis this on a desktop or a laptop?05:24
FourX4Luvnklownish: Well, I found at least one person that had your problem after they upgraded to Gutsy.  So it may be an issue with Gutsy, though I can't find any other information about it.  The closest I found was this:  http://www.nomachetejuggling.com/2007/01/13/using-western-digital-netcenter-with-ubuntu-linux/05:24
RaelI don't have a middle button05:24
RaelI have a scroll wheel I could press05:24
Jangariself-installed network card?05:24
mjw-Rael if your wheel is clickable, you have a middle button05:24
themoebiushow do i change the number of virtual desktops?05:24
rainwalkerRael: scroll wheel = middle button05:24
PKdoRAtomicSpark: I got o wait to get My PS3 back from repair05:24
Jangariyou might have to go and find a driver for it, but i wouldn't have a clue how to install it.05:24
Symmetriaklownish try and mount / on it to some other directory05:24
rainwalkerthemoebius: in compiz or normal?05:25
bazhangRael: that is what you want to do then works for many scroll wheels05:25
Symmetriathey may have only exported the root of the drive05:25
elshanot sure what you mean by that :) think it's a part of the motherboard05:25
themoebiusrainwalker: compiz05:25
Raelbut alot of times the text doees not stay highlighted05:25
AtomicSparkPKdoR: I find the PS3 to be amazingly interesting. It's sopposed to have amazing hardware but it takes 3 freaking hours to format its harddrive. lol.05:25
chrisndo you think upgrading my kernel will help?05:25
Raelit goes away as soon as I release the button05:25
anniku989someone let me know if their free, I'm having some troubles with grub05:25
rainwalkerthemoebius: do you have ccsm installed?05:25
bazhangccsm general virtual horizontal desktops = 4 themoebius05:25
harrumphrainwalker: would it make a difference if i burned the "alternate desktop cd" iso instead?05:26
Symmetriabut if its telling you permission denied then there has to be SOME nfs setup on that disk05:26

anniku989oen sec05:30

FY1also, does anyone know how to send a network message from an ubuntu computer to a vista computer?05:34
anniku989I don't have the vista dvd that i can boot off of to recover05:34
xeomAnybody here have any lucky getting the latest version of warsow to run05:34
AtomicSparkFY1: what do you mean by a message?05:34
rainwalkerFY1: via IRC?05:34
FourX4Luvnanniku989: Doesn't have to be the same CD that the computer came with.. just any CD05:34
anniku989don't have05:35
Symmetriaok, in that case the password has to be for SMB/CIFS05:35
bazhanganniku989: where did you install the grub and was it vista first then ubuntu or the reverse05:35
FourX4Luvndarn.. Ok...05:35
* FourX4Luvn scratches his head for a moment05:35
DezineIs it possible to hibernate my PC in Ubuntu?05:35
Symmetriaand I've never used CIFS so I cant help you past that, but I'd place money on the fact that you need to get CIFS installed on the linux box, and mount it with whatever that password is05:35
anniku989vista first. I got a live cd, and booted up, hit install, and it worked fine (i'm assuming it installed grub with it)05:35
rainwalkerDezine: System > Quit, and choose hibernate05:35
bazhangdezine in theory yes05:35
jbinderDoes any of you know how to set the CPU do a certain clock speed? I know you can do it with the GNOME CPU frequency scaling monitor applet, but for some reason, that applet doesn't work for me. How can I make it use all 2.2GHz of my dual core CPU instead of only 800MHz per core?05:35
klownishSymmetria: there is no password :X05:35
DezineWhen I choose quit it just logs out05:35
AtomicSparkDezine: yes. depends on hardware unfortunately.05:36
Dezinedoesn't ask what to do for some reason05:36
klownishSymmetria:  the only password i have is for the web utility, none for the actual folder.05:36
echozany "easy" recommendations for this noob for wireless in ubuntu (gutsy gibbon)?05:36
anniku989I've heard that just deleting/reinstalling grub may fix it, but i dunno how to do that05:36
MrObviousjbinder: If you have an Intel chip turn off Speedstep, C1E, etc., or AMD turn off Cool'n'Quiet in the BIOS.05:36
Symmetriaklownish probably same password05:36
anniku989off of the live cd05:36
DezineHm, AtomicSpark do you mean video card?05:36
bazhangechoz: what card05:36
rainwalkerechoz: you mean like a good wireless card?05:36
jbinderMrObvious: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2GHz05:36
FourX4Luvnanniku989: You can boot the live CD?05:36
Symmetriaklownish try installing smbclient and using that password with it05:36
MrObviousjbinder: Like I said, BIOS.05:36
klownishSymmetria: on a windows machine, ive never had to put in the password to connect.05:36
echozyes a good wireless router and card05:36
anniku989tahts what I'm posting this off of right now05:37
FourX4Luvnanniku989: Do that.. I'll walk you through reinstalling grub05:37
jbinderMrObvious: I don't know what any of those things mean.05:37
FourX4LuvnOh.. ok  heh05:37
anniku989I'm on it05:37
Symmetriaklownish errr if it works on a windows machine without a password, then use a windows mechanism to connect to it05:37
rainwalkerechoz: netgear wg511t05:37
bazhanganniku989: which installed first vista or ubuntu05:37
Symmetriainstall smbclient and try and use that to connect05:37
Symmetriaif it works, you can get smbmount05:37
echozxlnt thanks so much05:37
anniku989is there a way to filter out everyone elses chat?05:37
rainwalkeranniku989: you can private message someone05:37
bazhanganniku989: put them on /ignore05:37
AtomicSparkechoz: most wireless cards should work. ubuntu has pretty good support.05:37
Symmetriaheh, if you'd told me ages ago it worked fine under windows I woulda said ages ago to use smb :)05:37
anniku989vista was already on this on this laptop05:38
AtomicSparkechoz: i have a broadcom. its not supported by most linux distros and ubuntu worked fine. :P05:38
rainwalkerbazhang: not all clients do /ignore by default, like you have to enable a certain plugin in pidgin to do it05:38
klownishSymmetria: ive heard smbmount is horrible to use..people have used NFS but for some reason it wont work for me.05:38
FourX4Luvnanniku989: Join #anniku_help05:38
echozi've been trying to get linksys wmp54gs to work with NDISwrapper but not much luck05:38
AtomicSparkklownish: what are you trying to do again?05:38
FourX4LuvnAnd anyone else helping with anniku's problem, join #anniku_help please :)05:38
echozit's probably user error though ;P lol05:38
bazhangrainwalker: really? thanks!05:38
Symmetriaklownish without the drive infront of me I cant help you getting nfs to work on it, getting nfs to work *NICELY* (better than smbmount) can be tricky at the best of times anyway05:38
DezineOk, when I try to hibernate it says: Some modules failed to unload: nvidia. hibernate: Aborting suspend due to errors in ModulesUnloadBlacklist (use --force to override).05:38
rainwalkerechoz: my netgear wg511t wireless card worked out of the box since edgy05:38
klownishAtomicSpark: trying to get a network drive mounted using nfs05:38
AtomicSparkechoz: are you trying to capture packets?05:38
Symmetria(trust me, I have some massive nfs mounts)05:39
=== FBIGuy is now known as Balloon_Dog
echozdon't ask me about packets please :)05:39
MrObviousjbinder: :\...When you reboot you'll see an option like press F2 or F10 or Delete to enter setup, push that repeatedly to enter the BIOS. Next find the power management options and disable Speedstep and C1E and you'll be golden.05:39
elshahmmm, ok, lspci doesn't come up with any kind of network connection :s would this have been from a faulty install of ubuntu?05:39
jscinozbazhang, wer eyou able to try it with command line ./sauer_client "$@" -w1280 -h800 -a4 -b24 -z24 -f305:39
Symmetriaklownish piece of advice: get *something* working, then attempt to get the other one working once you at least have access to your drive05:39
AtomicSparkklownish: mount a windows network share? use places > connect to server. change to windows share. enter ip for server and share name for share. dont forget username or it most likely wont work.05:39
DezineAlright, I'll just shut it off, loads quickly enough anyway.05:39
echozi'll just get that netgear wg511t and dump windoze ASAP ...thanks. you guys are awesome!05:39
Agent_bobi have an error message "power manager \n this program can not start until you start the dbus system service \n it is strongly recommended you restart your computer after starting messagebus "   when i click the logout/shutdown button  and the system is just hung for about a minute then i get the logout options box and can kill x normally.     anyone know how to stop gnome's logout button from calling "/usr/bin/gnome-power-man05:40
xeomAnybody here have any lucky getting the latest version of warsow to run05:40
SymmetriaAtomicSpark its not a windows share, its a horrible western digital NAS05:40
Symmetriathat uses SMB/CIFS as primary protocol05:40
AtomicSparkoh haha. i missed that.05:40
Agent_boband why would anyone "strongly recommended" restarting a linux system ?05:40
Symmetriabut yes, in theory your method would work as well05:40
AtomicSparkSymmetria: If its the same NAS i read about before it has some severe problems. :\ I wish him luck. I think someone had to hack it to get it working properly.05:41
Symmetriabtw... if there are any south africans in here, Im about to make some fairly big changes to the way za.archive.ubuntu.com and za.releases.ubuntu.com are setup, and I'd appreciate if someone told me if it broke (though it really shouldnt)05:42
Agent_bobcause makes no sense to me at all,   if i start dbus (which i see no reason for) and then reboot the computer dbus will not be running on reboot...     did i miss something ?05:42

music`freaki'm new to Linux /Amarok05:45
zqweadriana: we are not forgiving you05:45
music`freakneed some help with using my ipod with Amarok05:45
Symmetriabtw, with regards nas's and nfs and other things, does anyone know why when I rsync to an NFS mount on ubuntu-server (and the mounted nfs machine is also ubuntu-server btw), occasionally things get really messy, the box load average goes through the roof and eventually the box falls over and dies?05:46
Symmetriaas in, I seem to hit some kinda locking issue and the thing goes slightly made05:46
music`freakheya mjw- :)05:46
Raelwhen I plugged in my mp3 player a window came up in amarok asking to use the device05:46
Symmetriathe other day I tried it on our mirror server and my load average shot to 983 before the box keeled over05:46
AtomicSparkSymmetria: id make a joke that its linux but i might get banned :-X05:46
mjw-music`freak hi05:46
Raelbut I ended up just selecting the files I wanted and dragged them to the window for my device05:46
music`freakhow do i see all the Videos present on my ipod in Amarok?05:46
music`freaklike i can in iTunes?05:47

klownishAtomicSpark: its still better than windows :P05:47
shamrockany1 using vmware to connect to ubuntu right now?05:47
mjw-music`freak i have absolutely no idea. :)05:47
FireBugThanks for the help the other night guys but I think my FTP server on my ubuntu server just shat itself. It was working fine till a minute ago until I rebooted the server. Now when I try and start proftpd service, its says05:47
music`freakanybody else?05:47
Raelnot really sure. I just ened up viewing them with the file manager05:47
shamrockany1 using vmware to connect to ubuntu right now?05:47
Symmetriafirebug any reason you chose proftpd?05:47
rainwalkermusic`freak: you could just browse the files in nautilus I think, I don't know I've never hooked up an ipod in ubuntu05:47
Agent_bobmusic`freak #kubuntu not responding ?05:48
AtomicSparkSymmetria: do you use "$rsync -avz -e ssh remoteuser@remotehost:/remote/dir /this/dir/"?05:48

AtomicSparkheh bots05:48
ubotuThe people here are volunteers, your attitude should reflect that. Answers are not always available. See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrcGuidelines05:48
elshamjw-, yeah it isn't coming up with anything for eth. would the most likely problem be a fault when i installed ubuntu, or the network card not being supported? I know that the card works.05:48
music`freakand i'm un Ubuntunot kubuntu05:48
SymmetriaAtomicSpark no, this is anonymous rsync, so rsync -av --progress --delete --delete-after --ignore-errors --hard-links rsync://host/rsync /nfs-mounted-local-directory05:48
mjw-elsha that means the system itself isn't even seeing an ethernet controller at ALL. as far as linux is concerned, it doesn't even exist05:49
AtomicSparkSymmetria: I tried rsync over ssh for backups. have no idea why it didnt work. i gave up too fast though. :P05:49
mjw-elsha it's not disabled in the bios or something is it?05:49
rainwalkermusic`freak: the only reason kubuntu might be a better place to ask is because amarok is a KDE app05:49
music`freakalso i would need a converter for converting my videos in Divx to Ipod video format in Linux05:49
klownishelsha, what kind of card is it?05:49
SymmetriaAtomicSpark works fine if Im rsyncing to a directory that ISNT nfs mounted (I actually worked around the problem by moving the rsync scripts onto the NAS's themselves)05:49
shamrockanyone using vmware to connect to ubuntu right now, i'm having a problem with the network, in ubuntu the internet is going alot slower05:49
music`freakany apps for doing that in Linux?05:49
AtomicSparkSymmetria: ah more nfs problems05:49
klownishelsha: i had issues with a netgear card when i first switched to ubuntu05:50
Symmetriaheh, we use NFS now only for actually reading data05:50

ubotuSymmetria: 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)05:51
mjw-klownish: elsha's lspci | grep -i eth  yielded nothing :/05:51
mrtsunamiFlannel, nice try, I suppose :)05:51
AtomicSparkshamrock: what is your question? if we use ubuntu on vmware client/server?05:51
shamrockim using vmware05:51
shamrockto connect to ubuntu05:51
mjw-elsha and it's apparently a motherboard-based controller05:51
shamrockand the internet is alot slower in ubuntu05:51
mjw-er, that last one was for klownish05:52
shamrockthan it is windows05:52
shamrocki got ethernet set to bridged on vmware05:52
fr500thats nonsense05:52
AtomicSparkshamrock: yes, most virtual machines are slower then the real thing.05:52
Symmetriarainwalker can someone please tell me what they consider a flood in this channel, that was 3 lines, normal typing can produce 3 lines faster than that, Im honestly just trying to get an understanding of what is considered flooding and what I can actually say in here05:52
shamrockso slower then the internet, that doesn't make any sense05:52
rainwalkerSymmetria: I guess that wasn't really flooding, sorry, but it's nice to use as few lines as possible05:53
FlannelSymmetria: Three lines is flooding, whether pasted or typing, in a channel this large.  Thats why we coerce people into not using the enter key as punctuation.05:53
AtomicSparkshamrock: its 10MB connection. then you have overhead of all the VMware networking stuff. then you have the reduced cpu & memory. etc etc.05:53

mjw-Jangari install cheese or camorama05:54
Jangarialrighty, thanks guys05:54
rainwalkerThedjatclubrock: how so?05:54
AtomicSparkshamrock: do you have xp or vista?05:54
FlannelSymmetria: also, pasting is better because it's likely that your message in the channel will have gone away (scrolled) soon thereafter (it has halfway through this message on my screen), and people may need to refer to it again later, etc.05:54
Thedjatclubrockrainwalker: I accidentaly changed the group to www-data :P05:54
rainwalkershamrock: I would say it's almost always better to dual boot05:54
Symmetriaflannel, after 15 years on irc, I know these things :) I still dont consider 3 lines a flood however, but we can agree to disagree05:54
shamrockbut harder I have no clue how to dual boot05:55
AtomicSparkshamrock: if you aren't experienced with computers I wouldnt duel boot. there are a lot of steps to get it working with vista.05:55
shamrockI like vmware it's a neat problem05:55
rainwalkerThedjatclubrock: hm...I don't know what to tell you05:55
iceswordnickrud, u still awake05:55
klownishit is a neat problem ;X05:55

ThedjatclubrockHELP I locked myself out of sudo05:55
klownishms hates ms <-05:55
mjw-elsha the other thing to suggest is to do just do a plain lspci and look for an ethernet controller...if you don't see anything...linux can't even see the hardware05:55
FlannelThedjatclubrock: Howd you do that?05:56
ThedjatclubrockFlannel: I accidentaly changed the group to www-data :P05:56

Thedjatclubrockjbinder: Any ideas?06:08
AtomicSparkicesword: no is the other computer turned on and booted up? are you sure thats the IP addy? I can't see a computer blocking ICMP (ping). Normally only routers do this.06:08
FlannelThedjatclubrock: oh.  You didn't break sudo (well, you did, but only indirectly), what did you do to try and fix it in the recovery console?06:08
lumienanybody here running skype successfully on 7.10?06:08

Photocopyweeman13221: Try #compiz-fusion06:10
ThedjatclubrockFlannel: Oops, no, I used -R the first time too06:10
FlannelThedjatclubrock: the correct method for fixing wouldve been to change / back to root (non-recursively), by doing it.... ah.06:10
iceswordfr500, i will give it a try06:10
FlannelThedjatclubrock: well, the fix for that is a reinstall.  Backup your data and reinstall06:10
ubuntu_I'm online from the LiveCD right now. Can someone tell me the command to fsck my ext3 partition (/dev/sda3)? I typed sudo fsck /dev/sda3 but it showed some problems and asked me for an additional command. My copy/paste isn't working in Terminal to show the error06:10
AtomicSparkweeman13221: follow that and then make sure you have the restricted driver installed. you may also need xserver-xgl package06:10
ThedjatclubrockFlannel: That isn't good atm06:10
Sweet-Pdoes anyone here have experience with Asterix PBX running on Ubuntu?06:11
FlannelThedjatclubrock: nope, but it's really all you can do.06:11
rainwalkerubuntu_: to copy/paste in a terminal you have to do control + SHIFT + c/v06:11
ThedjatclubrockFlannel: I doubt it :P06:11
AtomicSparkyou have to be kidding me. after waiting this whole time, ubuntu 8.04 a4 is failing to install grub :|06:11
FlannelThedjatclubrock: No, it really is.  You changed the group of your *entire* filesystem to be owned by www-data06:11
FlannelAtomicSpark: #ubuntu+1 for Hardy support, thanks06:11
ubuntu_rainwalker: Not working06:12
FlannelThedjatclubrock: er, not owned, but the group.06:12
ThedjatclubrockFlannel: But then I changed it back ;)06:12
rainwalkerubuntu_: what about highlighting it and middle-clicking to paste?06:12
ubuntu_rainwalker: I can paste but not copy06:12
FlannelThedjatclubrock: no, because everything in your filesystem isn't *supposed* to have the group of root.  All sorts of exceptions.06:12
ThedjatclubrockFlannel: Oh yeah :P06:12
iceswordfr500, i have tried that,it didnot work06:12
AtomicSparkFlannel: ha its fine. i'm just complaining how long its been taking to install into KVM. ill try there. LILO seems to be installing.06:13
fr500Thedjatclubrock: so you lnow what is the group of every single file on the filesystem06:13
fr500icesword: if you can ping the gateway06:13
fr500and the other pc can ping teh gateway06:13
fr500is gotta be a firewall issue on one of the 2 pcs06:13
ThedjatclubrockFlannel: But then I made everything but /etc/ my group06:13
iceswordfr500, yeah,i can,he can too,we got the firewall closed06:13
FlannelThedjatclubrock: It's broken.  Make backups (liveCD is good for that) and reinstall.06:14
fr500closed is not disabled on some firewalls06:14
fr500assuming it is disabled, can the other pc ping yours?06:14
iceswordfr500, no,he can ping the gateway,but not me06:14
ThedjatclubrockFlannel: I just installed it !!!!!!!!!06:14
fr500icesword: maybe you have the firewall?06:15
mjw-Thedjatclubrock then you don't have much to lose06:15

jcg42rainwalker, Why does this site: http://www.screenlets.org say the latest is 0.0.10, but that gnome-look page lists 0.0.12?06:26

Dr_willis 06:26
Jangarithat'll do, isn't there one that ships with ubuntu out of the box?06:26
rainwalkerjcg42: the original creator of screenlets no longer has time to maintain them, so that person on gnome-look is the new mainainer06:26
rainwalkerJangari: gparted does06:26
rainwalker...I think?06:26
Jangariwhere is it?06:27
CrazyPhil_Dr_willis, I have try that command. I don't get any response relative to DMA!06:27

lachlanjangari. well maybe you would know how to install windows without wiping grub?06:50

christopherknows its an xfx though06:51
lachlanjangari what happens is that i pick xp and it says starting up.. and stays there06:51
Jangarii don't know if that's possible, lachlan, or easy at all, but you can install windows, which will wipe your grub as you know, then get super grub disk, a boot cd which will restore the grub, but then you'll need to go and edit the grub again to allow xp, which should be too hard, just keep a backup copy of this one06:52
