namelesshi to all00:00
alzamabarHi, Is there a motherboard with drivers which natively support Ubuntu? Normally with Windows I get a CD with the motherboard drivers for audio and video, but with Ubuntu I can't. Wouldn't it be great if there was a motherboard with native support for Ubuntu?00:00
AeonorisI'm mostly concerned about getting Ubuntu to be able to "see" my other hard drives...00:00
_Oz_Aenoris: type join #windows00:00
AeonorisK, I'll move there00:00
_Oz_Aeonoris: yeah, they might be corrupted00:00
Dr_willisalzamabar,  for most motherboards - i dont even have to worry about any drivers under linux.. the onboard sound/video - can be issues.. but normally not the MB itself.00:00
_Oz_by the sound of it00:00
TwintopAeonoris: My experiences if you do hibernate is that it causes problems between the two (files not saving when you switch back to Windows, not seeing the partitions at all, etc), so I didn't know if it was similar. Doesn't sound like it is.00:00
namelesswhile i was installing ubuntu, the grub step gave me an error, how i can fix it ?00:00
_Oz_nameless: describe the error, please.00:00
_Oz_Twintop makes a good point, Aenoris.  Make sure your XP computer doesn't hibernate.00:01
yellowSubMarhello?00:01
Dr_willisalzamabar,  thers the new motnerboards comming out with a mini-linux install built into the bios. :) you can fast boot to a mini-linux os and do things.  Those would be the nifty ones to get for a linux box.00:01
namelessgrub write failure00:01
=== ScT-808y is now known as bobby
alzamabarDr_willis I'm referring to things like audio and video. I've got an Nvidia, and I'm afraid to say that the NVidia driver freezes on 7.10 GG.00:01
Geoffrey2i'm building a program from source, it's looking for md5.h  Any ideas where i'd find that?00:02
biouserAeonoris, what error messages are you getting when trying to boot ubuntu?00:02
_Oz_Leads me to a question of my own: what's the best place online to buy linux-ready (ideally, dual-boot for Win XP) laptops online00:02
b_#debian00:02
_Oz_?00:02
nano__what better, compiz with Xgl or with Xorg server?.....anybody?00:02
LumoojayellowSubMar, have you tried the "nodeadkeys" option for they keyboard?00:02
fooI installed fluxbox on ubuntu but I can't right click on my desktop for some weird reason. any ideas?00:02
yellowSubMarWhat's that?00:02
_Oz_alazmabar: have you installed the restricted driver manager?00:02
Dr_willisalzamabar,  all bets are off with video/audo onboard.. the mb makers could toss about anything on there. :) i perfer to get mbs that dont have  tose onboard.00:02
alzamabarDr_willis, same for audio. If I plugin speakers, the sound quality is not very good00:02
biouserGeoffrey2, have you tried searching the synaptic package manager?00:02
LumoojayellowSubMar, it makes keyboard work properly00:02
biouser!md500:02
ubotuTo verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/VerifyIsoHowto or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows00:02
Morph3usHi everybody, anyone knows how i can access my linux partition from windows vista?00:02
biouser!md5.h00:02
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about md5.h - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi00:02
nuccoGeoffrey2: libgcrypt11-dev00:03
_Oz_morph3us: there is no way to do it.00:03
AeonorisNiouser: Nothing, boots fine, just that HD issue.  I tried reinstalling, but that didn't help.00:03
Dr_willisalzamabar, its all about the chipset the mb maker is using for the audio/video. Some work good.. some dont work at all.00:03
AeonorisErr, Biouser00:03
biouserMorph3us, I don't thnik that you can00:03
nuccoGeoffrey2: install libgcrypt11-dev00:03
_Oz_Very annyoing, isn't it!  Linux is great about accessing NTFS partitions but Windoze won't even acknowledge your linux stuff.00:03
alzamabarDr_willis, I do agree. So could I buy an audio card supported by Ubuntu? Anyone you could suggest?00:03
TwintopAeonoris: what Ubuntu release are you using?00:03
yellowSubMarI don't know where to find the option, Lumooja.00:03
nameless_Oz_: i've checked the cd for errors00:03
namelessno one00:03
Morph3us_Oz_, yes, i already do that before00:03
AeonorisTwintop: 7.10, I think that's Gutsy Gibbon?00:04
biouseralzamabar, check the ALSA list, most should be well supported00:04
Dr_willisalzamabar,  creative has some nice ones in the $40 or less range.  But ive not used any of their newre cards.. I got an old audigy2zs  that ive had for 4 pc's now.00:04
LumoojayellowSubMar, if i remember correctly, it was under system settings -> regional settings00:04
_Oz_Aenoris: I guess the only real way to do it would be to use something like vmware or virtualbox for windows and run a little mini linux session in there00:04
alzamabarbiouser, ALSA list?00:04
biouseralzamabar, you might have to do some building of the ALSA source if you use a more exotic one00:04
TwintopAeonoris: You're right. That means the NTFS drivers should be in the Kernel. Do you have any sort of encryption on your NTFS drives?00:04
iceslicewill the ati 8.2 proprietary drivers let me use big desktop with two different monitor resolutions?00:04
Dr_willisalzamabar, the new creative x-fi have limited linux support at this time.00:04
_Oz_yeah, if you get into linux/ubuntu you basically want to start avoiding motherboards with integrated video and/or audio00:05
biouseralzamabar, search ALSA in google00:05
_Oz_I run an SBLive! card in my Asus mobo even though it has integrated sound00:05
Aeonoris_Oz_: That's the only way to see those drives?  Bleh.00:05
_Oz_Aenoris: even then, that might not work.00:05
AeonorisTwintop: Not that I know of.00:05
_Oz_Aeonoris: but that's only windows TO ubuntu.00:05
_Oz_The other way around should work out of the box (ubuntu TO windows).00:05
yellowSubMarThere is no system settings menu in 7.10.00:05
alzamabarbiouser, looking...00:05
namelesswhile i was installing ubuntu, the grub step gave me a grub write failure, how i can fix it ?00:05
LumoojayellowSubMar, there is under kubuntu...00:06
Dr_willisonboard video is handy at times. :) in case you have to  build up a low end box. or use an old mb later as a test box.00:06
_Oz_nameless: hit esc when grub loads and load your default gnome desktop00:06
_Oz_nameless: then, edit grub/conf00:06
_Oz_find out what it's choking on00:06
yellowSubMarDo you know where I could find it using00:06
TwintopAeonoris: Are all of these partitions on one hard drive or two? You might try running fdisk on the drive to see if you can see them. I had a similar issue with an external hard drive that got formatted NTFS and had to repair the partition table to use it on Linux.00:06
LumoojayellowSubMar, just look for the regional settings menu somewhere00:06
yellowSubMarDo you know where I could find it using gNOME, Lumooja?00:06
nameless_Oz_: i've downloaded the daily build alternate iso00:07
LumoojayellowSubMar, i just installed opensuse, but it sucks, so i have to reinstall ubuntu now... :P00:07
larson9999getting older isn't nearly as fun at 41 as it was at 16.00:07
_Oz_nameless: follow the steps I described first00:07
nano__what better, compiz with Xgl or with Xorg server?.....anybody?00:07
markgreeneHey guys. I am looking for a hard drive recovery util for linux.00:07
_Oz_see if you can get past the grub error by hitting esc when grub loads00:07
yellowSubMarhat'00:07
_Oz_choose "recovery mode"00:07
yellowSubMarhat's not fun, Lumooja.00:07
_Oz_nano: they're essentially identical00:07
LumoojayellowSubMar, what's not fun?00:08
larson9999markgreene, i'd go with sysrescd00:08
_Oz_lumooja: I think he means, having to reinstall is not fun.00:08
AeonorisTwintop: Three hard drives.  How would I run fdisk on a drive?00:08
markgreenelarson9999: anything thats not a cd00:08
nano___Oz_: i was referring to what would produce better effects, xgl or xserver with aixgl....which option should i select?00:08
_Oz_Wait a sec, Aenoris -- can you describe exactly how many physical drives you have, and how they're partitioned?00:08
Lumooja_oz_, oh reinstalling is easy and fast, you have to do that anyway every week when using xp00:09
_Oz_nano: it'd look pretty much the same either way in my opinion00:09
nucconano__ x and aiglx is the way to go00:09
_Oz_lumooja: heheheheh00:09
larson9999markgreene, you can install those tools on a hd.00:09
nano__nucco: how come?  isn't xgl suppose to be the next best thing?00:09
ClintZ28anyone able to get Ossv4 XFI drivers to work with Flash?  I followed the howto on ubuntu forums...compiling the libflashsupport driver, and creating symlinks, but I've had no luck...audio works with other applications though00:09
nucconano__ because xgl appears not to be actively under development00:09
nano__nucco: can i install aixgl via synaptics?00:10
TwintopAeonoris: The hard drives will probably be under /dev as /dev/sda /dev/sdb and /dev/sdc if you're in 7.10. The command is simply "fdisk <drive>", ie "fdisk /dev/sda". Then you can use the commands inside of fdisk to at least look at what partitions are (and their sizes, filesystem type, etc) and figure out which one is which.00:10
nucconano__ you don't need to do anything special. it comes by default. it only works depending on your hardward00:10
nuccohardware*00:10
TwintopAeonoris: Be careful though, fdisk canbe used to format your disk. Don't write anything to the partition table unless you're certain00:10
* _Oz_ nods sagely. "What Twintop said," he says.00:10
nano__nucco: do i need to put in a switch in my xorg.conf file ?00:11
markgreenelarson9999: where do I get the list? I just see the download for the cd00:11
AeonorisI have three physical hard drives, I believe theres an old windows installation on one along with possibly an old ubuntu partition on it (I get sorta confused with partitioning), a HD with just ubuntu, and a HD with just XP00:11
nano__nucco: how can i check to see if my aixgl is running?00:11
nucconano__: what is your display card?00:11
nano__nvidia 615000:11
danbhfiveAeonoris: try sudo fdisk -l00:11
nameless_Oz_: i've hit recovery mode, now i've chrooted the partition00:11
nano__i have nvidia glx running00:11
nucconano__:  check system > preferences > appearance00:11
nucconano__: and see the desktop effects section.00:12
_Oz_so, four HDs, two oldish HDs with possibly a couple of partitions but no big deal for the data there, and then a physical disk with only Ubuntu (important data) and another physical disk with only Windoze (also important data.)  Correct?00:12
_Oz_nameless: what have you found?00:12
RalithI'm having trouble with fglrx on an nforce3 mobo with a radeon X85000:12

coreyodoes anyone know of a way to disable the "require an active connection" checkbox in the VPN settings in Network Manager?  I can't connect to a VPN while on the Sprint PCS g3 network because NM doesn't recognize my ppp0 connection as an active internet connection.00:12
nano__nucco: i don't see any desktop effects option.....00:12
oshiDumb question.  How do I come back to the desktop after ctrl-alt-f1?00:12
nameless_Oz_: the whole ubuntu without grub00:12
nucconano__: use system > administration > restricted manager to install the proprietary drivers00:12
_Oz_nameless: it's not showing the windows partition at all?00:13
usr13oshi: Ctrl-Alt-F700:13
Lumoojawill ubuntu support ppc in future?00:13
oshiusr13: thanks00:13
_Oz_Lumooja: doubtful00:13
nuccoLumooja: not likely. that support was actually dropped00:13
IndyGunFreakLumooja: no..00:13
namelessi don't have got a windows partition oO00:13
_Oz_PPC is sort of dying off00:13
Lumoojanucco, why is that, then i have use some sucky AIX6_00:13
Hilikusim trying to configure my tv out, when i run Xorg -configure i get00:13
IndyGunFreakLumooja: if you need PPC support, use Debian.00:13
HilikusLoadModule: Module ztv does not have a ztvModuleData data object.00:13
_Oz_nameless: ok, my mistake.  So your problem is ONLY the grub error?00:13
namelessyes00:13
Hilikusany idea what that module is??00:13
nano__nucco: im running fiesty fawn and the latest nvidia drivers i could get via restricted drivers were almost 1.5 yrs old; instead i disabled restricted drivers and downloaded newest nvidia drivers and installed them00:13

Lumoojanucco, i realized that, but i want also servers to use ubuntu00:14
IndyGunFreakLumooja: there is an ubuntu for PPC still, but its a community project, not officially supported by Canonical.00:14
_Oz_nameless: okay, launch a terminal and type "locate grub"00:14
nucconano__: desktop effects wasn't a strong point of feisty :)00:14
_Oz_I'm not at a ubuntu machine right now so I can't remember the exact directory it's in00:14
cheesestudioshi anyone can help me? and if can speak spanish then better :D00:14

nuccoicesword: nice one :)00:17
nuccoicesword: gnome is a desktop for *nix systems...00:17

Aeonoris_Oz_: No, three HDs, one oldish one with two partitions, nothing much important there but that's the only one I can "see" and it has ubuntu I'm running on it, another with some vaguely important stuff, but I think I wiped it by accident, that should be the one that used to have ubuntu, and then another that has important stuff and windows on it00:17
oshihow many desktops do most of you have?   2?  4?00:17

Dr_williseltux,  ive seen some linux on usb - web siutes/tutorials. You may want to check them out. there can be issues to watch out for..00:18
iceswordJack_Sparrow, kde is planing a kde windows project00:19
Jack_Sparrowicesword: It is an OS not a program, there are ways to run OS's in WIndows if that is what you mean. But a version for windows.. no00:19
eltuxIndyGunFreak: I already have it installed on my pc but I tried to install it straight onto the drive and it messed up my install of ubuntu, thank god I have windows (You'll never hear me say that again)00:19
larson9999markgreene, i'm by no means an expert on the subject but the few times i've needed such a thing, it's done the job for me.00:19

AeonorisDoes anyone know how I could at least see one of my hard drives temporarily, so I can save the stuff that I want to another compy on my network?00:20
Jack_Sparrownp.. If you MUST run it in windows look into the virtual options.. or kill me for suggesting you try wubi00:20
eltuxDr_willis: my ubuntu partition is broked at the moment, any windows utilites?00:20
Aeonoris_Oz_: Totally toast, or just the files on them?00:20
_Oz_just the files, yeah.00:20
Dr_williseltux,  gparted on a live cd - is what i normally use00:20
* IndyGunFreak smacks Jack_Sparrow with an Ubuntu Install CD for suggesting Wubi00:20
_Oz_Ubuntu SHOULD be able to see those drives with no problem, Aeonoris.00:20
_Oz_Have you run gparted?00:20
Dr_williseltux,  http://www.pendrivelinux.com/   has a lot of tutorials/guides/docs.00:20
usr13Aeonoris: Do what to one of your HDs?00:21
Jack_SparrowIndyGunFreak: DOnt bother trying to slice my wrists with a cd as we speak00:21
Aeonoris_Oz_:  Hmm, I suppose that's not too bad.  All I had was game saves, though I was fond of them...00:21
usr13Aeonoris: What do you want to do?00:21
eltuxDr_willis: thanks00:21
IndyGunFreakJack_Sparrow: lol00:21
_Oz_Aenorois: if it wasn't anything TOO important the simplest thing is just to use gparted to format and partition them back out fresh00:21
Aeonorisusr13: Uh, "see" it.  It won't let me "see" any files on it >.<00:21
usr13Aeonoris: mount00:21

Jack_SparrowIndyGunFreak: Wubi is a terrible option but my hope is it will get him started using linux00:22
Dr_williseltux,  the onlu linux ive ever gotten to install/work off a pendrive/external disk - is  the latest Slax (so far) :) they are all gettting better i hear.00:22
IndyGunFreakJack_Sparrow: i guess...00:22
eltuxDr_willis: oh ok, I'll try anything right now hehe00:22
Dr_willisi think i would rather run linux in vmware/virtualbox/qemu or whatever.. then use wubi. :)00:22
IndyGunFreaki'd rather have my face stomped on by rosie o'donnell wearing golf cleats, than use wubi00:23
Aeonorisusr13: not totally sure, it says that they're there and have 5gb of free space on them (which isn't true), and that they are empty O.o00:23
Dr_williseltux,  with the latest slax3.0 setting up my thumbdrive was easy.  unzip files to the disk.. run their makeboot.bat, :) but slax3.0 is not got all the exctras yet. but it worked.00:23

_Oz_go to /mnt and create a new dir00:35
Dr_willisim not sure that the /media for removeable media - is followed by ubuntu. :)00:35
JouvaOr any sort of decent system information tool that comes with Ubuntu or one I can maybe get00:35
_Oz_call it the name of what you want your drive to be00:36

mad_max02but since I deleted windows 100% I'm stuck with replacements00:36
_Oz_dr_willis: it SHOULD be.00:36
FourX4LuvnDr_willis: You're right.. it's not.  Virtually all non-OS related mounts are put there.00:36
DaZJouva: try 'hardinfo'00:36
_Oz_but I don't really care, to tell you the truth.00:36
Aeonoris_Oz_: The name that the system already calls it or whatever I want to call it?00:36
_Oz_using /media is ok.00:36
Dr_willis_Oz_,  file a bug then..  I dont really care either. :)00:37

PeloPeP`, make sure you have enough room to extract it , 2 make sure it is not password protected00:39
_Oz_using /mnt is essentially equivalent00:39

Aeonorisoperation not permitted...  Eh, sudo it, I assume?00:40
PeloPeP`, I assume you have installed unzip ?00:40
_Oz_yes00:40
PeP`Pelo: yes00:40
_Oz_I guess you're in /mnt because in /media I don't think sudo is required00:40
AeonorisHow do you send a private message?00:41
JouvaDaZ: That seems to 1) Only give info on PCI and not AGP (though it lists my card, but I didn't look to see if it says anything about the speed) and 2) Crash very easily00:41
Aeonoris_Oz_: Yeah, mnt.00:41
PeloPeP`, try just opening it with fileroller and extracting individual files00:41
_Oz_aeonoris: I'm not registered, so I guess you can't...  just paste it in the channel, I guess...  no way around it.00:41

FourX4Luvnmon^rch: Do you have a usenet account?01:01
Aeonoris_Oz_: And it has the one that I could already see twice, so I guess that worked...  K, I'll look there.  It said earlier (when it told me the drive was in use) that I could force it, using "mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/hda1 /mnt/driveone -o force".   Would trying that screw anything up?01:01
mon^rchFourX4Luvn: no... what's use net?01:01
arbirjrib: not the one, i just tried to install, there are other themes present01:01
FourX4Luvnmon^rch: It's newsgroups.. You need a usenet account before you can setup newsgroups in anything like thunderbird or evolution01:02
jribarbir: not even when you go to "customize"?01:02
arbirjrib: when i downloaded this file from this site, it was a zip file containing various folders.. i renamed it to .tar.gz01:02

JouvaOk, I'd like an HONEST answer: If I WERE to buy an nVidia card to replace my ATi card but I'm on a budget, what one should I get? I'm not looking to get OMG BEST 3D GRAPHICS EVER. I want something that won't be generally slow with stuff like just watching a youtube video. I MAY want to run Second Life as well, but it doesn't have to be super fast with that.01:05
lyagCew27: You can edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf01:05
JouvaI'm not looking for a gamer card. I'm looking for a card that works that I can afford, so WELL under $10001:06

ODBODI have the nvidia legacy drviers for my nvidia tnt card. I installed Unreal Tournament 99, and the performance is suffering. It's choppy compared to how it played in windows (very well!!!). Any ideas?01:06
FourX4LuvnJouva: Just about any new nVidia card out today would meet your needs then.  Don't worry about the model.. just get something that's kind of mid-range price wise and you'll be fine01:06

mon^rchFlannel: actually... it's only asking for that info only if I add a mail account... if a add I news/rss account everything "looks" like it's going okey-dokey... then seems to skip the important part of adding the news server. is it because I installed thunderbird-gnome-support?01:10

arbirjrib: thanks.. let me find out the page then....01:11
Flannelmon^rch: When you go to add a newsgroup account, (create account, newsgroup radio button) it asks for your name and email first, then after you hit next, it asks for your server.01:11
arbirjack-desktop: try this " ls |grep "file name i want to find"01:12

ahaveFourX4Luvn, ok. would ubuntu be a linux 2.6 ?01:14
arbirjrib: let me try those docs and then get back here.. thanks though for pointing out the fundamental error01:14
jribJouva: don't know anything about that particular card.  I imagine most nvidia cards "just work", but google for "ubuntu" and the model before you buy01:14
FourX4Luvnahave: Yes01:14
lyagCew27: Then the file is not empty. You only need to edit it.01:15
Flannelmon^rch: p3 should be name of account, with page 2 in the middle asking for account.  Which version of Ubuntu are you using?  What you can do, is add it, then go back and edit the account, and add in the server.01:15
lyagCew27: But first back it up:  sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak01:15

FourX4Luvnwell, even if you can't find that exact one.. I know the chipset it uses is rock solid in Linux and runs SecondLife with no slowdown.  Maybe you could find a different card with the same chipset01:19
mon^rchFlannel: so anything that can post to a newsgroup and send me replies will be very helpfull01:19
FourX4LuvnJouva: well, even if you can't find that exact one.. I know the chipset it uses is rock solid in Linux and runs SecondLife with no slowdown.  Maybe you could find a different card with the same chipset01:20

jribricky_: just right click on your desktop and change the desktop background.  Then select the file01:20
jribJouva: #hardware might give you final approval too as far as the merits of the card go01:21
Flannelmon^rch: Uh, I'm not really sure.  Something in .thunderbird, they may be able to give you much better help in #thunderbird on irc.mozilla.org, like what to actually look for and how ot edit and stuff.  But, be sure to file a bug so it can be fixed01:21

user_odbod 51201:33
jribnorml_advocate: depends on your client01:33
odboduser: You are being bottlenecked somewhere.01:33
norml_advocatei am using pidgin01:33
FourX4Luvnnorml_advocate: If you install the pidgin plugin pack, there is a plugin in that to do what you want01:33
odboduser: And ATI is different for everyone. I got my radeon 9550 to work very well before (though people found that in disbelief)01:33

odboduser: But, it just seems you are either being bottlenecked somewhere, OR, it's just the drivers.01:34
FourX4Luvnjrib: That's not installed by default though is it?  Part of the plugin pack I thought01:34
user_odbod: Im shocked too.. :D ati open source driver performance is actually rather good, and fglrx was possibly actually better on older fglrx version... may have to do some research on phoronix..01:35
jribFourX4Luvn: I don't have pidgin-plugin-pack installed, but it is available to me01:35

This prevents the default session and language from being saved. File should be owned by user and have 644 permissions. User's $HOME directory must be owned by user and not writable by other users.01:35
odboduser: ATI doesn't support linux, that's the problem. But, nvidia does. THat's why nvidia seems to have drivers with better support than the proprietary ati drivers.01:35

norml_advocateIf i turn on remote access can someone just fix my computer?01:37

norml_advocatealready did that, says its enabled but doesnt work01:42
FourX4Luvnnorml_advocate: Is it the card that isn't working, or perhaps your encryption?  Do you use WPA or WEP?  Could it be that that's causing the problem and not the card?01:42

linux_trojanthe best thing ubuntu has going I think is its great forums and it does appear to be very stable01:44
FourX4Luvnnorml_advocate: Stupid question, but are you sure it's turned on?  Most laptops have a key combination to turn the wireless on or off.01:44
norml_advocatei have read alot of doc. on this, and it seems really common, and theres acajillion ways to make htis work.01:44
tracer903could someone look at my xorg.conf file and advise me.  my tv out stopped working. http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/56438/01:44

mrdigitalyou can use it to remote desktop into ubuntu01:45
mrdigitalor windows01:45
mrdigitalvia VNC01:45
FourX4LuvnCew27: I don't, but there were two people in here last night talking about it.  Consensus seemed to be that it was pretty good for what it is.. and the wifi adapter is pretty flaky.01:46
mrdigitalim just pointing out a cool feature01:46
fevelmrdigital: OH REALLY!01:46
mrdigitalif u jailbreak it01:46
fevelmrdigital: thats cool01:46
lmgeeeSkfarek, yes. can't find the flag for the Device section, but it prevented some buffers.01:46
Cew27FourX4Luvn: what you mean about the adapter and is it worth getting for my bd and sticking mint or another distro on it ?01:46
mrdigitalfevel: have u heard of jailbreaking?01:46
craigbasssWhere are samba shares mounted if you can see them in nautilus?  It just showed the files on a windows box, but I don't know where to find them int eh command line to play...01:46

Cew27FourX4Luvn: what atheros wireless is it and it sounds like a driver issue01:48
FourX4LuvnCew27: So.. if you're not going to be doing much wireless with it then for the price, yeah, it might be pretty good.  If you are going wireless a lot I'd stay away though.01:48
norml_advocatewhos the bigshot around here?01:48

norml_advocateit says     wired network with a radio button high lighted, uder that it say wireless networkds, but none there.  there shouldnt be any there though because there is now wireless here.01:57
linux_trojanI think for dual boot you install windows and make sure you create a swap partition, then install linux and the boot loader reads that you have and windows partition and it puts that in the boot loader, but I cant remember for suer01:57
bluefox83norml_advocate, congradulations, your wireless works01:57
norml_advocateit also has conncet to other and create wireless net. options01:57
FourX4Luvnemma: Your problem was that your home directory became world writeable.  What caused THAT I don't know, but that's why you were getting the errors.  Editing your xorg.conf file wouldn't of had anything to do with that.. Nor would sudo vs gksudo.01:58

linux_trojanif something breaks just reinstall02:10
datalossFirst it wouldn't even mount, so I replaced the superblock with a backup using testdisk and fsck, and managed to get it to mount and backed up my important stuff. It still won't boot into Ubuntu and this fsck is taking slightly longer than forever02:10
dsnydersHi all! My k3b stopped working, and I'm getting a DCOP aborting message when I run from a terminal.02:10
norml_advocatefourx4luvn good advice but i want to learn fast.  im lookin for a school of soft knocks, or a nice big huge book02:10
norml_advocatethat starts out with linux is for computers02:11

koresko<sjs> Was a afraid you'd ask that.  I don't have the Ubuntu CD handy to remind myself, but for most distros you hit a Fn key to get a list of kernel options you can type at the boot prompt.02:21

FourX4LuvnVisinoni: If you know much about creating dynamic websites though, then it wouldn't be too hard02:23
koresko<sjs> Probably when GRUB is up and showing a list of options (install Ubuntu, memory test, media test, etc)02:23

datalossFourX4Luvn: Seems I'm a magnet for rare problems. I was checking out how stable Ubuntu is. I was restarting gdm that way once a week, just to free up RAM. It ran well for 3 months, and the next ctrl+alt+backspace restarted the system for some odd reason. It said in the console that the system's going to reboot. It wasn't a crash or anything02:24
FourX4LuvnVisinoni: Oh02:24

Dr_willisI mixx and match kde and gnome - so i always have kubuntu-dekstop and ubuntu-desktop both installed.02:28
koresko<Hilikus> You'll need the kernel sources and tools to do that.  Are you sure you need to?  What exactly are you trying to accomplish (install a patch?)02:28
Dr_willisnow removing the kde stuff.. can be a issue later _Oz_02:28
yoflash02:28
sjs<koresko> and it's showing a list of options F1-F10 like prereq for running ubuntu, special boot parameters etc.02:28
_Oz_fourx4luvn: shouldn't I use aptitude to install that?  Anyway, how can I easily go back to my CURRENT gnome desktop02:28
_Oz_?02:28
FourX4Luvn_Oz_: Then, at gdm login screen select options, sessions (I think it is) and select KDE02:28
shiwarayaamenado, yes, i can copy some files, but some others semms to have different rights, especially pictures02:28
Dr_willis_Oz_,  use aptitude to install  kiubuntu-dekstop, that may make it easier to remove kde later.02:29
koresko<sjs> Special boot parameters sounds like what you want.  You should be able to control a number of things about how the kernel behaves.02:29
Dr_willis_Oz_,  the gdm or kdm login tool has a menu for what desktop to use02:29
datalossNow fsck is showing hundreds of numbers. I don't what all this is02:29
_Oz_aptitude has better control over all the unused dependencies, right?02:29
datalossI wonder how long this is gonna take. It's been 7 hours already02:29
amenadoshiwaraya-> the partition is mounted  both source and destination?  and you were doing this as sudo when in liveCd ?02:29
FourX4Luvn_Oz_: Dr_willis Is probably right.  apt-get will work, but aptitude is probably better if you thik you're going to remove it later02:29
_Oz_dr_willis: I am afraid I won't be able to get back to my gnome install.  Is this an irrational fear?02:29
_Oz_fourx4luvn: very good02:29
dsnyderscompy, I don't believe audacity is the right tool for the job.  It's more for editing sound files, ie cutting and pasting sound bites.02:29
amenadodataloss-> a sign of dying hard disk02:29
Dr_willis_Oz_,  get back? whats to get back to? You tgell gdm to go to KDE or GNOME.. there ya go.02:30
Hilikuskoresko im trying to recompile the lirc_pvr150 module, the gutsy version is supposed to do what i need but i manually compiled it when i was using feisty, i upgraded today and the module segfaults when i load it so im suspecting the dist upgrade didnt upgrade it cause i manually compile it in feisty02:30
compydsnyders, do you know of a nix program?02:30
Dr_willisselect gnome session ya get gnome.. select kde session ya get kde.02:30

amenadodataloss-> then if you trust smartctl, go forward02:30
_Oz_thanks, dr_willis.02:31

jerojasr1hi. I'd like to check the setup of my sound card, but I can'r find alsaconf anywhere. I already installed the alsa-utils package. Any hints?02:33

FourX4Luvndsnyders: It cannot.  One or the other.02:33
compyill check some out at google02:33
Hilikuskoresko i just want to make sure that the module is the new default module and no the patched one i created for feisty02:34
andrew__Can someone tell me if there is a way to repair/revert my sound drivers and config rather than reinstall the entire OS?02:34
sjs<koresko> so what do i do about ACPI or APM? what kinda param do i need?02:34
shiwarayaamenado--> thanks very much, i got it02:34
amenadoshiwaraya-> you're welcome, again try to learn command lines and not rely too much on gui02:35
koresko<Hilikus> Hm, the modules for a given kernel version are normally installed in /lib/modules/kernelversion so there isn't much chance the wrong one would get loaded unless you did something weird.02:35
krammerhi I am stuck in the shutdown process it is showing will restart but nothing is happening02:35
Hilikuskoresko i see02:35
dsnydersHi all! My k3b stopped working, and I'm getting a DCOP aborting message when I run from a terminal.  Anybody else having this problem?02:35
_Oz_dr_willis: re KDE and compiz, is it...  not ideal?  Is compiz best utilized in the gnome desktop?02:35
koresko<sjs> From (vague, unreliable) memory, ACPI=off, APM=off.02:35
tushydhey, my little battery button went away on my notification area... how do I get it back??02:35
amenadokrammer-> press the on/off switch for a few secs02:36
shiwarayaI backed up on different partition all that i needed from my home folder, do i need to back up something else02:36
FourX4Luvntushyd: Did it go away because your battery is fully charged?  Or you mean it's completely absent?02:36
krammerive tried that and rebooted then i tried to c if it would do it again and it did02:36
Dr_willis_Oz_,  i dont find compiz that useable at times...02:36
amenadoshiwaraya-> only the ones you consider important02:36
koresko<Hilikus> I've seen some modules segfault if they're given the wrong params.02:36
tushydFourX4Luvn... I'm a moron.02:36
tushydthanks anyways!02:36
Dr_willis_Oz_,  and kde4 is working on their own alternative. so use it if you want. just dont get too addicted to it. :)02:37
FourX4Luvntushyd: No worries.02:37
koreskoCould that be happening here?  You could test by loading the module from the commandline.02:37
shiwarayaamenado--> i will follow your tip, i got into ubuntu pretty fast and even though i can do many advanced things i did not know live version needed to run sudo, i forgot also the browser was nautilus02:37
Hilikuskoresko i dont give it any arguments, just modprobe lirc_pvr15002:38
_Oz_dr_willis: many of the plugins I find really useful.  I love the desktop cube "flicker" using the scroll wheel at the edges of the screen.  And I love being able to scroll through applications with that enlarged thingie.02:38
shiwarayaamenado--> tx again, im ready to reinstall then02:38
koresko<Hilikus> Is there anything interesting in your dmesg or /var/log/modules (you can 'tail' them to see)02:38
_Oz_kde4 is working on a compiz clone?02:38
_Oz_to be used solely in kde4?02:38
_Oz_Sometimes I wonder if there are too many variants of ubuntu.02:38
FourX4Luvnhah!02:39
credible_Oz_: kde4's window manager has an opengl composite manager similar to compiz, yes02:39
FourX4Luvntoo many variants of Linux, period.. but then that's the freedom of choice, eh?02:39
min1mino: bla02:39
_Oz_edubuntu, xubuntu, edubuntu, kubuntu, ubuntu, ubuntu-orangehat, etc02:39

ubotugimpshop is a hack that makes The Gimp look and feel more like Photoshop.  A .deb for Ubuntu is available via http://plasticbugs.com/?page_id=29402:41
FourX4Luvnand the gimp is great for beginning stuff.. but it doesn't begin to touch Photoshop when it comes to advanced editing, sorry.02:41
krammernow my keyboard doesnt even work in a chat area any thoughts ???02:41
sjs<koresko> then ACPI=off?02:41
koresko<sjs> It might be worth a shot02:41
Dr_willis_Oz_,  i find the cube useless.. The wife does like the zoom in feature. and the invert feature.  Other then those 2.. i dont use the rest02:41
shiwarayaother question, when i start live cd, i always choose manually o ran VGA1024x768 but the screen goes 1280x1024 and installs on that resolution. is this a common problem?02:41
_Oz_lyag: yeah, I've messed around with gimp.  It's not bad, but...  well...  photoshop is pretty hard to beat.02:42
FourX4LuvnUnfortunately I have to go with _Oz_ on that one and say there's no equivelant in the FOSS world for Photoshop02:42
ubuntu_i installed windows xp after installing ubuntu and lost the grub thing and dont have high speed so i cant get an alternate cd but i have a fat32 partition in which i can copy files to but this live cd wont allow me to copy paste those files from my previous ubuntu installation! it copies the folder but never the contents!!02:42
_Oz_photoshop is the industry standard.02:42
fevelso?02:42
FourX4LuvnBelieve me, I'd LOVE to ditch Adobe, too.02:42

Dr_willis_Oz_,  photoshop really beats up on my checkbook also...02:42

shiwaraya when i start live cd, i always choose manually o ran VGA1024x768 but the screen goes 1280x1024 and installs on that resolution. is this a common problem? i cannot change the resolution after install02:45
ubuntu__Oz_: i no but im trying to share an internet connection and went to windows as a temporary solution02:45
fevelyoull have to boot up from live cd and reinstall grub02:45
FourX4Luvngimp is fine for cropping and layers and such..02:45
meekolopeubuntu: Oz is right about that, you will have to boot up a live cd and install grub or lilo to the MBR02:45
_Oz_I love Ubuntu and Linux.  It's one of the areas that are really hard for open-source companies to close the gap in.  Adobe has such a huge lead, and they have a huge staff working on the product.  It's a tough task for Linux to try to compete in that department.02:45

_Oz_fevel, I think you misunderstand me.  I think Linux is far superior to M$ Windows.  No two ways about it.  But in INDIVIDUAL APPLICATIONS, sometimes the Windows is superior and it'll be a long time before any open source company can begin to close the gap.  Photoshop is one of those mammoth products with many years of development that will be virtually impossible to beat with an open-source offering.02:49

yellowSubMarI'm having some keyboard issues with the shift keys and certain characters. I use a Saitek Eclipse II which I have tested to work without these problems on another machine, and I have gone into the xorg.conf file to enable 'nodeadkeys'. I use gutsy, and I cannot figure out how to fix this problem.03:08
_Oz_freezes? hmm.  do you have any weirdo USB devices attached, Nissan_350Z?03:09
Nissan_350Znope03:09
pajamianNissan_350Z: download the alternate install CD03:09
KlownerNissan_350Z: have plenty of ram?03:09
_Oz_yellowSubMar: do you have an el-cheapo keyboard you can try?03:09
Nissan_350Zits got 160MB of ram03:09
eggyhm - I'm expericing problems loading snd-bt-sco - it has problems locating symbols - I'm running Kernel 2.6.22-14-generic (2.6.22-14.52 gutsy), any suggestions?03:09
pajamianNissan_350Z: 160M is pretty low for the live CD, you should be able to install from the alternate install CD03:09
Nissan_350Zi need a boot option (to type in) that will get me right to the Setup03:10
Basimhow can i choose the best linux for me?03:10
fevelyellowSubMar: try anther keyboard on the machine03:10
KlownerBasim: keep installing new distros until you find one that you like03:10
fevelyellowSubMar: without issues youll be sure its a software related bug03:10
Nissan_350Zany ideas?03:10
fevelstill cant believe it is though03:10
codenameI have a question, what does it mean, if your desktop suddenly goes to a black screen, like it does right before it boots up, and then it takes you back to the login screen?03:10
billytwowilly what is the linux equivalent of fdisk /mbr ?03:10
KlownerNissan_350Z: download the alternate install cd and boot it03:10
fevelbillytwowilly: its really not that simple03:11
meekolopeNissan_350Z,: check out this web site: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions03:11
fevelbillytwowilly: whats the actual problem?03:11
ClintZ28I'm running Ubuntu 7.10...just compiled the latest alsa drivers from a snapshot in hope of getting my creative X-FI soundcard to work..when I try to load the module (after a successful compilation, I get errors saying uknown symbol...how do I go about fixing this?03:11
spudratic0code name check your screen saver and power settings03:11
Nissan_350ZKlowner> i would have to order it, wouldnt i? i only get 26.4 kbps of Dial up internet, lol03:11
billytwowillyfevel: It's complicated. I want a clean mbr so I can reinstall kubuntu.03:11
yellowSubMar_Oz_: I'll go find it right now.03:11
KlownerNissan_350Z: ah.. I've been there before :[03:11
codenameI was watching a video and doing the cube at the time.03:12
dsnydersHi all!  I'm having problems with k3b.  I get a DCOP aborting message.  I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling k3b with no change.  Any suggestions?03:12
pajamianNissan_350Z: you can download it from ubuntu and burn it yourself if you have a CD burner.03:12
codenameI'm on a destkop.03:12
billytwowillyfevel: right now when I try and reinstall none of my partitions show up. It's because I have a wonky mbr I think.03:12
Nissan_350Zok meekolope03:12
Nissan_350Z:D03:12
ubuntu_Hi, since the LiveCD is loaded into RAM, can't I eject the disc while I'm on the live session?03:12
codenameno03:12
ubuntu_:(03:12
codename:(03:12
kostkonubuntu_, when you'll try to run an app it will need the cd again03:12
spudratic0codename:system admin screen saver03:12
fevelbillytwowilly: do you have any operating systems installed?03:12
KlownerNissan_350Z: grab the bittorrent for it and download it over the span of 5 or 6 nights like I used to do, or find a friend with dsl/cable :03:13
codenameHey spud, you think it could be a X crash?03:13
billytwowillyI have windows vista  currently. I blew away gutsy already.03:13
ubuntu_Any other live distro that'll let me eject the disc?03:13
pajamianubuntu_: it is not all loaded into RAM, just parts of it.  You would need a lot mroe RAM if the entire CD were to be loaded into RAM.03:13
fevelso you can log into vista?03:13
billytwowillyI suppose I could boot into windows and use fdisk /mbr03:13
HallageHow do I reconfigure my keyboard, in a similar manner to the way you configure the utility in the alternate install with the ncurses interface? [Which of the following keys does your keyboard have, that kind of thing]?03:13

clint_I'm running Ubuntu 7.10...just compiled the latest alsa drivers from a snapshot in hope of getting my creative X-FI soundcard to work..when I try to load the module (after a successful compilation, I get errors saying uknown symbol...how do I go about fixing this?03:13
codename<spudratic0>: because at the time of the incident I was watching a video and doing the desktop effects.03:13
billytwowillyoh yah, is 32 bit linux as lame about more than 2 GB of ram as windows is?03:13
pajamianubuntu_: still the Live CD is designed to be used in as little as 200 megs or so.03:13
spudratic0codename:sounds like you have it set for you to log on after the sceer saver comes on03:13
fevelbillytwowilly: are you trying to install ubuntu on another partition?03:13
Nissan_350ZKlowner> its ok, meekolope go the website i needed, thanks a bunch guys :)03:14
norml_advocat1hey dudes03:14

norml_advocat1linux is the bomb03:14
billytwowillyfevel: I will be I had it originally. I think I can just boot into windows and blow it away that way.03:14

codenameany ideas?03:15
billytwowillyso how do I blow away grub and the mbr in linux?03:15
kostkonubuntu_, boot the livecd, run the app(s) you like from the cd and then remove it, it may work03:15

Nissan_350Zbye guys thanks a bunch!03:16
Nissan_350Z:D03:16
Klownerbillytwowilly: replace with a windows mbr you mean? not just "blow away"03:16
pajamianubuntu_: you may be able to create a ramdisk and copy the live CD image to it, then switch over, but I honestly don't know how to do that, I've never tried.03:16
koreskokostkon: What happens if you just type 'eject' in a terminal?03:16
fevelbillytwowilly: just boot from ubuntu live cd reinstall it on a blank partition, it will automtically locate vista partition and add it to grub03:16
sneedlyhow do I open a folder in terminal03:16
bulwynklnever mind, I worked it out... (bit noisy in here)03:16
sneedlyi did the dir03:16
fevelbillytwowilly: just DONT BLOW YOUR VISTA PARTITION03:16
billytwowillyKlowner, no I don't care what it does. I just want it gone. Doesn't have to be windows mbr, just has to have current mbr obliterated.03:16
HallageHow do I reconfigure my keyboard, in a similar manner to the way you'd use the  configure utility in the alternate install (with the ncurses interface)? ["Which of the following keys does your keyboard have", that kind of thing]? I have done it before, and have tried dpkg-reconfigure console-setup, but none of that works03:16
kostkonkoresko, no clue03:16

faprilhow do you properly remove a usb disk so that every time i re-mount it i have to "reset the $logfile"03:17
billytwowillyfevel: yah, I know. I'm not a linux idiot. I've been using linux for a decade and a half.03:17
codename<spudratic0>: because at the time of the incident I was watching a video and doing the desktop effects. I was not Idle.03:17
billytwowillyI just wan the simple answer to "how do I delete my mbr?"03:17
fevelcant see the problem then03:17
codenameI was watching a video and doing the cube at the time. I was not idle.03:17
Newbuntu2can anyone help me with VNC? If I try to open synaptic manager, or wait a few minutes, it freezes my linux box...03:18
sneedlyI am a linux idiot that came to the good side a few days ago03:18
codenameI have a question, what does it mean, if your desktop suddenly goes to a black screen, like it does right before it boots up, and then it takes you back to the login screen? I was not Idle, possibly a X crash?03:18
Klownerbillytwowilly: so write zeroes to it using dd03:18
pajamianubuntu_: maybe you can borrow a friend's computer, heh.  I would give knoppix a try, though.  I still don't know if it will let you eject the CD.03:18
coz_hey guys  in feisty  and installed everything but all of a sudden gimp-svg plugin is no longer aviable   any  solutions?03:18
ubuntu_pajamian: I could, but the files I need to write are on my hard disk03:18
newbuntu22newbuntu2: you copied my name03:18
billytwowillyKlowner: ok, how do I do that?03:18
spudratic0codename: I'm new to ubuntu myself lol so your guess is as good as mine>i'm a noob also.thats why I'm here to read lol03:18

codenameohh nice03:19
codenameI've used Ubuntu for about a year now03:19
sneedlyHow do you find a folder in terminal and go to it03:19
codenamebuttt first time this has happened to me03:19
pajamianubuntu_: check distrowatch, you may be able to find a distro there you can use.03:19
newbuntu22codename: how can i check what version of xorg xserver i'm using?03:19
ubuntu_okay03:19
Klownerbillytwowilly: you need to retain the partition table though?03:19
spudratic0codename I would say you were not touching any keys or the mouse and it went off vlc used to do this to me in windows03:19
yellowSubMarfevel: I have two cheap ps/2 keyboards, but I don't have a converter or port on my computer03:20
sneedlyi need to find my desktop a folder then open the install file03:20
codenameasiest way is to just look at Xorg.0.log03:20
newbuntu22thank you :)03:20
billytwowillyKlowner: yes, I need the partition table.03:20
eekranosneedly, cd ~/Desktop03:20
codename<newbuntu22>: easiest way to check your Xorg.0.log file03:20
codenamenp newbuntu03:20
codename:D03:20
codenameyou know how to do that right?03:20
newbuntu22once i find it, gpedit it03:21
codenameI think I had VLC going.03:21
Klownerbillytwowilly: I think dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/yourdrive bs=466 count=1   would do it, I think..03:21
codenameor03:21
sneedlyeekrano: ty I have been at a cmd promp since i was 6 windows kill more of my brain cell than pot03:21
Klownerbillytwowilly: that should erase the code area of the MBR, according to wikipedia03:21
billytwowillyKlowner: You don't sound very confident;)03:22
spudratic0codename check your settings in both vlc and the screensaver settings might help03:22
bulwynklxrandr dual head question...  This works...03:22
bulwynklxrandr --output DVI-0 --mode 1600x1200 --right-of VGA-003:22
bulwynklon an ATI radeon 9550 - but seeming settings in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf don't..03:22
koolkatHow do I become a Documentation Member?03:22
eekranosneedly, welcome back =)03:22
_Oz_koolkat: join #ubuntu-dev03:22
Klownerbillytwowilly: well the mbr contains the partition table as well, but I'm pretty sure the partition table is the last 66 bytes of the 512B mbr03:22
codenamehey newbuntu2203:23
spudratic0codename there was always a glitsh with vlc I think it was to disable the screen saver option in vlc03:23
koolkat_Oz_: Im wondering because I post alot of stuff in the help.ubuntu.com03:23
newbuntu22codename: yes?03:23
codenamenewbuntu22 if this helps /var/log/Xorg.0.log03:23
codenamethats where it is03:23
codename:D03:23
Klownerbillytwowilly: to be safe, you could dd if=/dev/yourdrive of=mbr_backup.img bs=512 count=1  and copy it off somewhere safe03:23
_Oz_koolkat: we'd be pleased to have you in that case.03:23
ClintZ28Guys, have a general question...what causes errors about Unknown Symbols when trying to load a module?  I'm getting some when trying to load alsa-modules03:23
newbuntu22thanks codename.. i just used search, but that would have been easier.. thanks again :)03:23
codenameIt will tell ypu :D03:23
codenameSorry about that03:23
Klownerbillytwowilly: then write the zeroes, and if it somehow fails miserably, just write the backup back ala dd if=mbr_backup.img of=/dev/yourdrive03:24
codenamenewbuntu22 next time as well you can do it through terminal03:24
codenamenewbuntu22 nano /var/log/Xorg.0.log03:24
havok73Is there a command for echoing driver information?03:24
HallageHow do I reconfigure my keyboard, in a similar manner to the way you'd use the  configure utility in the alternate install (with the ncurses interface)?

sneedlynow the hard part i need to open a folder on the desktop I tried the samething but its not liking life? am i just a shitty typer03:26
Klownerbillytwowilly: for using linux since it was 2 years old, one would think you'd be more familiar with dd, but I'm glad it worked ;)03:26
newbuntu22codename: i see i'm using 1.3.0.. supposedly a bug was fixed in xorg xserver 1.4.1... i want to update but (1) which download should i choose from synaptic package manager?  (just the xserver-xorg or one of the hundreds of other options?)  and (2) is there any way for me to 'roll back' the install if i have problems??03:26
Flannelsneedly: You're in ~/Desktop, right?03:26

billytwowillymy bad.03:27
Flannelnewbuntu22: You'll need to wait for the new version (hardy) to get 1.4.1, Gutsy has (and always will have) 1.3.003:27
outsanepajamian: i tried that, but when i install them i never know where they go or where i'm supposed to install them.  i've been using the synapic package manager up till now, and i've looked at guides and even though i follow the directions the apps never work03:27
Klownerbillytwowilly: heh, about when I started I think03:27
_Oz_Linus Torvald is in the channel, folks.03:27

jazzhi, does any know how to install ati graphic drivers?03:28
newbuntu22flannel: thanks for the information.. how will i get hardy when it is released?  will it show up on the 'update manager' ?03:28
codenameSoooo a 1337 Java Scripter Walks into a bar.03:28
sneedlyeekrano, hmm didnt do anything03:28
Flannelnewbuntu22: When hardy is released, you'll be notified in Update Manager, yeah.03:28

pajamianHeh, Linux Torvald ... connecting from a Telecom Indonesia IP ... yeah, right.03:29
sneedlyeekrano, same cd ~/install  {then tab}03:29
bulwynklI'm having a bit of trouble here - I've tried using this channel multiple times over the last few years and rarely do I get anything like a response...03:29
pajamianerrr Linus03:29
eekranosneedly, try hitting <Tab> twice. If there are multiple matches it will list them to help you03:29
billytwowillyKlowner: I don't think suse was even around when I started using linux...03:29
TrelHave any of you ever used a monitor at a resolution around 1680x1050?03:29
Klownerpajamian: he spelled his name incorrectly too ;)03:29
biouserthis channel is full of noise, here's some more03:30
=== linus-torvald is now known as hans-reiser
newbuntu22why will hardy be so good?03:30
Klownerbillytwowilly: 1.0 in '9403:30
Klownermy first exposure to linux was suse 6.303:30
billytwowillyKlowner: mine was redhat 4.2 or 5. It was crap;)03:31
mzuverinkno matter what I do, I did the a2enmod userdir forced restart but it wont show user pages, whats the correct perms for public_html?03:31
Klownerheh03:31
pajamianoutsane: ok, well usually they will install in the /usr/local directory, and you can specify the install location for most source packages in the ./configure state by specifying a --prefix=/path/to/where/you/want/it/installed03:31
chapoceroHey guys, can somebody give me a hand? I am currently running of the live portion of a dvd for the 64-bit AMD version of Ubuntu. And as I am trying to install the operating sytem to the second partition of my hard drive, I am getting a "No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu." error. I have my single hard drive partitioned in 4 parts. With one 30gb for Vista, and two 10gb partitions for Ubuntu and fu03:31
sneedlyeekrano, I dont know what happened but I got there ( I think)03:31
eekranosneedly, hitting tab twice there would list the contents of the ~/install folder03:31
nickrudmzuverink: your usual user perms03:31
pajamianoutsane: for example, if I were going to install pidgin from source and wanted it in the /usr/local/pidgin directory then I would do: ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/pidgin03:31
mzuverinknickrud, ok03:32
eekranohehe. if you do the command `pwd` what is the output?03:32
sneedlyeekrano, no its a really long name install_flash_player_9_linux03:32

TrelDo you see any compiz performance issues?03:32
dark-knightI have tried uninstall and reinstall03:33
outsanepajamian: whenever i tried the ./configure it didn't work.  i did the gunzip it worked fine, and then (as far as i know) the next step is to do ./configure in that directory, right?  it just doesn't work.03:33
luckyonedoes anyone know how to make f-spot scan for new files in the Photos directory?03:33
KlownerTrel: ah, I don't use compiz.. too slow03:33
TrelI'm fairly certain this onboard video is going to struggle with it, but I was just curious if anyone else had seen some fade in/fade out issues.03:33
nickruddark-knight: ls -ld ~/.aMule , what's the permissions on that?03:33
pajamianoutsane: usually if ./configure doesn't work it means you are missing libraries on your computer that are needed to compile the program.03:33
iceswordoutsane, what error it gave u03:33
nickrud!doesntwork03:33
ubotuDoesn't work is a strong statement. Does it sit on the couch all day? Does it want more money? Is it on IRC all the time? Please be specific! Examples of what doesn't work tend to help too.03:33
eekranosneedly, <Tab> attempts to complete whatever it is you are typeing, so you must first start typing "inst" then <Tab> should fill in the file name03:33

havok73Anyone able to tell me how to find my video driver Version?03:34
pajamianoutsane: you usually have to install lots of extra -dev packages to get a program to compile from source.03:35
nickrudmzuverink: did you restart apache? I simply did sudo a2enmod userdir03:35
KlownerTrel: I have an nvidia geforce gt 7600 and it stutters a bit when beginning a window drag, etc.03:35
dsnydersIs anyone familiar with DCOP?03:35
mzuverinknickrud, forced restart03:35
nickruddark-knight: try moving that dir03:35
pajamianoutsane: if that program has a source package in one of the ubuntu repositories then there is a command that makes installing those packages a lot easier, but I forget what it is (unfortunately).03:35
dark-knightas user or root?03:36
nickrudmzuverink: and you went to  localhost/~user03:36
mzuverinknickrud, yes03:36
TrelKlowner: This is just a 945G onboard video system. EXA acceleration helps a great deal, but it is still a bit shaky from time to time.03:36
nickruddark-knight: if it's owned by you, you can remove it03:36
KlownerTrel: I don't think it's a resolution issue so much though.. I attribute it more to compiz immaturity03:36
outsanepajamian: how do i know if i need more packages to make another work?03:36
nickrudmzuverink: I don't know what would be causing that. wierd03:37
mzuverinknickrud, doing a hardrest03:37
TrelThat might be the case. I still think the resolution is going to play a role as the system seems to struggle more with higher resolutions.03:37
TrelNo great surprise there though.03:37

nickrudmzuverink: i'd do sudo invoke-rc.d apache2 restart03:37
dsnydersoutsane, this is why you use apt-get or synaptic.  They manage the package dependencies for you.03:37
KlownerTrel: well yah, somewhat.. either due to fill-rate problems when redrawing the screen or rendering windows to textures03:37
pajamianoutsane: usually it will tell you in the output from ./configure what else you may need to enable certain features or just to get it to compile at all, but not always.  Sometimes it will go through ./configure just fine but die in the make stage if something is missing.03:37
mzuverinknickrud, ok, thanks03:37

pajamianoutsane: ok, and you have a tarball (.tar.gz) file for it?  and you expanded the tarball into a directory already?03:40
pajamianoutsane: you have to do the ./configure from inside the directory you unzipped to.03:41

Another keyboard works fine on this computer, but this keyboard works fine on other computers. however, this keyboard does not work as it should all the time with the shift button on this computer. I'm using a Saitek Eclipse II with the default US 104-key layout, and I set 'nodeadkeys' in the xorg.conf. this did not start happening until a few days ago, and I've had ubuntu installed 04:11
BodOmLaWlol04:11
pajamianyellowSubMar: what is the actual problem?04:12
dsnydersyellowSubMar, Is it a consistent problem, or intermittent?04:12
yellowSubMarIt is a consistent problem where some characters + shift will not register. Some work fine with both, some work with one or the other, and some don't work at all. From what I use, alt and ctrl work fine.04:13
iceswordnickrud, yeah,thank u04:13

dsnydersyellowSubMar, are you having problems with both shift keys, or only one?04:14

nickrudStarfish: yes, you put it on 'hold' , or in synaptic terminology, 'force version'04:15
DrBanzaiDoes anybody else experience slow program launches in 7.10?04:15
yellowSubMarWith some characters only one shift key is affected. With others, both are. With others still, none are. For example, g and ' don't work with either. T works with the right one only. C only works with the left key. But W works with both.04:15

GunbladeIVhello04:19
GunbladeIVi need sum help here04:19
Ghost|BTFHcyphase: It's currently 11.2, but I'm sure there's a deb package around for the newer versions if you do a google search.04:19
krimGunbladeIV: Just tell us _what_ you need help with.04:19
GunbladeIVi wonder why my wireless(which is connected to internet) do have download rate about 200++kbps while i'm idle04:20
Ghost|BTFHcyphase: And basically, any .deb package (most) will install fine in Ubuntu.04:20
cyphaseGhost|BTFH: GetDeb.net has 0.11.304:20
narothepharohnickrud: where do i get wesnoth?04:20
nickrudnarothepharoh: it's in the repos04:20
cyphaseGhost|BTFH: but i can't find 0.11.4, except in the hardy repo, and that won't work04:20
GunbladeIVkrim, and a weird application is running on background which is ntos_wq/004:20
Ghost|BTFHcyphase: Mmm...then I'd say that's probably the best you're going to find without going beta or worse, CVS.04:21
dsnydersyellowSubMar, I'm thinking that the keyboard uses a non-standard mapping.  I think there's some sort of keyboard driver/config somewhere, but I'm not sure where.04:21
Ghost|BTFHcyphase: If you're not a google master, I guess I could do a quick check for ya.04:21
cyphaseGhost|BTFH: i have checked04:21
cyphaseGhost|BTFH: but if you don't mind, sure. maybe i missed something04:21
Ghost|BTFHcyphase: And you thought perhaps one of us was hiding one under our skirts? ^_^04:21
sjshmm my minimum speed avaliable is 8x04:21

nandoHi. I'm here to ask if there is any way to remove the "-" that appears at the top of a signature. I really need to figure out how to remove it as it doesn't look too professional at the end of an e-mail to people of importance.04:22
=== nando is now known as Fbern
cyphaseGhost|BTFH: i may have found a repo..04:22
nickrudsjs: check you got a good download, then try some of the kernel options in f6. Try searching for 'your motherboard' ubuntu , you might find some clues04:22
Ghost|BTFHcyphase: http://ubuntu2.cica.es/ubuntu/ubuntu/pool/main/r/rhythmbox/04:23
sjsnickrud: ok!04:23
dsnydersyellowSubMar, Many companies release their drivers to Microsoft, but keep them proprietary to everyone else.04:23
Ghost|BTFHcyphase: I'm almost scary.04:23
StarfishI'm a bit confused as to why entering a command in a terminal works, but using the same shortcut in one of the drop-down menus doesn't do anything ?04:23
yellowSubMardsnyders: the odd thing is that this has only recently started to happen.04:23
tbbottleHi.  I was wondering if enyone knew which package contains, or how I can get my hands on the module i2c_nforce?  Is there a module listing somewhere?04:24
nickrudStarfish: drop down menus? Some detail?04:24
Starfishnickrud :: the 'Applications', 'Places', and 'System' menus on the top of the screen by default04:24
Starfishnickrud :: I added an item to the 'Applications' menu, but it doesn't do anything04:24
Ghost|BTFHStarfish: What is acting oddly on the menu, but fine in cli?04:24
nickrudStarfish: what did you add to the command line?04:25
dsnydersyellowSubMar, sounds like my k3b problem.  It was working fine about a month ago.  Now it won't start.04:25
Starfishnickrud :: in both cases, it's '/home/user/.rubyripper/rubyripper_gtk2.rb'04:25
narothepharohwhat are some cool war games free?04:25
cyphaseGhost|BTFH: thanks04:25
Starfishwhen executed in a terminal, it pops up a little GUI, when run from the menu, nothing happens04:25
yellowSubMardsnyders, what do you recommend I do to fix this?04:25
nickrudStarfish: hrm04:26
cyphaseGhost|BTFH: i think i found a few more as well04:26
Starfishnickrud :: could it possibly be affected by my mostly nonfunctional nautilus ?04:26
Ghost|BTFHStarfish: methinks you need to do: ruby /home/user/.rubyripper/rubyripper_gtk2.rb04:26
StarfishGhost|BTFH :: I tried that as well, same effect04:26
Ghost|BTFHThat's how it is with most programming languages I know.04:26
Ghost|BTFHStarfish: Did you try it with quotes?04:26
nickrudStarfish: I'm not clueful enough about ruby to know what it requires.04:26
tbbottleHi.  I was wondering if enyone knew which package contains, or how I can get my hands on the module i2c_nforce?  Is there a module listing somewhere?04:27
StarfishGhost|BTFH :: quotes don't change it04:27
nickrudtbbottle: i2c-nforce (note dash) is in the linux-image-$(name -r) package04:27
Ghost|BTFHStarfish: as in ruby "/home/user/etc" or "ruby /home/user/etc" I'm not sure which one does it, but one of them should...04:27
dsnydersyellowSubMar, I have no suggestions other than google, and just using a plain old keyboard.04:27
n8tuserwhats the command to ignore join and parts on an XChat client?04:27
blbrownis there a #ubuntu preferred bittorrent client?04:27
blbrownI was thinking azureus04:27
nickrudtbbottle: i2c-nforce.ko to be specific04:27
yellowSubMarThanks for your help, dsnyders. :)04:28
dsnydersblbrown, I use ktorrent.04:28
bazhangblbrown: transmission will be the default starting in Hardy, the next release04:28
StarfishGhost|BTFH :: the first has no effect, the second gives an error as the file doesn't exist04:28
iceswordutorrent04:28
Ghost|BTFHStarfish: Quotes change how it's read when you click. Like for me, to run WoW from a shortcut, I have to tell it: wine "/home/me/WoW/WoW.exe" --opengl04:28
tbbottleThanks nickrud, any reason that it wouldn't be modprobe(able) one a default gutsy install?  I can't seem to find it in /usr.  I'll have a look in the package.04:28
StarfishGhost|BTFH :: yeh, I know, everything inside the quotes is read as one parameter04:29
Ghost|BTFHStarfish: Hmm...so you have ruby installed, but it's not working by calling on ruby...hmmm...04:29
Starfishthat shouldn't affect this, though, as there are no special charactes04:29
StarfishGhost|BTFH :: I'll enumerate that it does work from a command-line04:29
nickrudtbbottle: it's in /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/i2c/busses04:29
tbbottleThanks04:29
n8tuserwhats the command to ignore join and parts on an XChat client?04:29
StarfishGhost|BTFH :: my nautilus is non-functional, that might have something to do with it, I'm not sure04:29
nickrudtbbottle: try modprobing it as a dash, not underscore04:29
Ghost|BTFHStarfish: Hmmm....and you don't need to do a ./ to run it, or even a "run" command?04:29
rikkimaruhow would I go about reinstalling ALSA?04:30
TazbobuMy LAN is working over Gigabit ethernet, and Wireless LAN, but I can't see machines listed in network on either XP or ubuntu side.. however I can access both sides by IP.. how do I fix this?04:30
StarfishGhost|BTFH :: executing from a command-line via '/home/user/...' or 'ruby /home/user/...' both work fine04:30
bazhangn8tuser: depends on the chat client04:30
Ghost|BTFHStarfish: Because genereally, I can't get ANYTHING to run cli without telling it ./ or run or sh or python etc.04:30
Hallag1How do I reconfigure my keyboard, in a similar manner to the way you'd use the  configure utility in the alternate install (with the ncurses interface)? ["Which of the following keys does your keyboard have", that kind of thing]? I have done it before, and have tried dpkg-reconfigure console-setup, but none of that works.04:30
Ghost|BTFHStarfish: Okay, that's farqed up. ruby "/home/user/.." should work fine then.04:30
StarfishGhost|BTFH :: yeh, it doesn't04:31
StarfishI think I have other problems04:31
Starfisheh, guess it's back to the command-line fo rme04:31

dsnydersHi all! My k3b stopped working, and I'm getting a DCOP aborting message when I run from a terminal.  Anybody else having this problem?04:31
Ghost|BTFHIf it does, there is something you're missing with the shortcut.04:32
nickrudah. a path test, wise04:32
tbbottleStarfish:  Have you tried configuring the launcher to run the command in a terminal, and searched for any relevant output?04:32

christylezcan sum1 help me my double click doesnt work04:34
tbbottleI am not sure, but you might be able to redirect the output from the command into a text file, to see if there is something there you aren't catching.  Tryi appending " > /tmp/ruby_out.txt " to the command in the launcher config and then check to see if anything shows up in the text file04:34
Muldersuspend=sleep?04:34
tbbottleyes Mulder04:34
Muldersleep worked fine on my thinkpad04:35
* Mulder has a t4304:35

Javidi dunno, my a31p works like a dream04:35
Starfishtbbottle :: output file is empty04:35
christylezi cant double click to open04:35
Mulderif it doesnt wake up after sleep, try pressing power button04:35
cgegnerI do04:36
sp0rocgegner, take note that  network manager doesn't refresh most of the time, regardless of coming out of sleep mode or not.04:36
christylezcan sum1 help me?04:36
bazhangn8tuser: right click should do it04:36
tbbottleNothing relevant from ruby then (it tends to use standar out, not standard eror, so we should have caught it).  Shame. Sorry, I am out of ideas for now.04:36
rikkimaruhow would i go about updating to a newer version of ALSA?04:36
bazhangwhat is the issue christylez04:36
xyblorchristylez: are you having trouble with double click in a file manager, or everywhere?04:37
usrlA LiveCD iso can be burned to a DVD-R and run with no problems, right?04:37
christylezwen i put an icon on desktop i cant open it by left clicking04:37
Ghost|BTFHusrl: I hope so, or the custom DVDs I've done are worthless. ;)04:37
usrlGhost|BTFH: ok, thanks04:37
bazhangchristylez: what icon and how did you put it there04:38
cgegnersp0ro: network manager shows as connected, however the interface stays down and I cannot coax it to life using network manager gui (changing wireless networks doesnt respawn etc)04:38
Mulderi hope there's enterprise security support for wireless in gnome newtork manager soon04:38
chris062689Hello :)04:38
Ghost|BTFHusrl: Just remember, if you burn it to a -R dvd, don't expect a +R machine to read it. ;)04:38

sp0rocgegner, if you don't know the interface run an ifconfig -a in a terminal04:43
Scunizimike_, ah.. could it be a router problem.. open ports and such?04:43
bazhangdsnyders: yes; I have to go away for a bit now the other fine and more knowledgeable folks here can likely help04:43
Ghost|BTFHStarfish: Find the issue?04:43
cgegnersp0ro: it should be eth104:43

Sup3rDup3rso I put the ubuntu folder in C:\Program Files\VMware04:43
dsnydersbazhang, You've been the only one to respond.04:43
sp0rocgegner, easier just to learn the ifconfig(iwconfig commands if you use a wireless nic) and go from there04:43
mkarScunizi, it's my own shares that I can't see.  Would that be a router thing?04:44

jw144000emmajane: Yeah04:52
Starfishanybody else have problems with flac 1.2.1 ?04:52
Scunizimike_, check your dialogue windows for a pm from me.. I'll give you my msn addrss there.04:52
n8tuserjbinder--> typically runlevel 1 is no gui (X) , no network, level 3 has X04:52
Jordan_Ujbinder, Is there a reason you aren't using restricted manager? Did RM not work?04:52
jbinderWould recovery mode use 1?04:53
Jordan_Ujbinder, Yes04:53
emmajanejw144000: and the language pack?04:53
jbinderI haven't gotten any GUI stuff working yet04:53
emmajanejw144000: i.e. the locale....04:53
n8tuserjbinder--> on ubuntu 2-5 is same levels04:53
Scunizimike_, did the private message window open?04:53
jw144000emmajane: I don't know if I have the language pack installed.04:54
mike_Scunizi: yes04:54
emmajanejw144000: Give this page a try: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HebrewLocalizationHowto04:54
Hallag1How do I reconfigure my keyboard, in a similar manner to the way you'd use the  configure utility in the alternate install (with the ncurses interface)? ["Which of the following keys does your keyboard have", that kind of thing]? I have done it before, and have tried dpkg-reconfigure console-setup, but none of that works.04:54
Scunizimike_, type something in it ..04:54
emmajanejw144000: I think it's what you're looking for...04:54
ghfreak51k i'll let you know when i'm done with it04:54
n8tuserjbinder--> before you can get gui, X has to be installed..or framebuffer (i think)04:54
jw144000emmajane: OK, thanks.04:54
Sup3rDup3rk04:55
Scunizimike_, my address is in there now.. can you see it?04:55
vermawhat package do I need to install for development docs?04:55
Jordan_UHallag1, Not sure exactly but 'locale' may ( or may not ) be a helpful search term / starting point04:55
emmajanejw144000: I haven't played with language switching in a while, but it used to be that you could install two different keyboard layouts for two different languages. I had french and english at one point and would switch between the two by pressing both "shift" keys at once. Is that what you're looking for?04:56
xyblor Hallag1: there's "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg"04:56
n8tuserverma--> for which development tools?04:56
Hallag1xyblor: Tried it, no help. Ditto console-setup04:56
verman8tuser, I want to be able to refer to C documentation through man04:56
Hallag1Jordan_u: t's a keyboard setting, not a locale thing, I THINK04:56
dsnydersHi all! My k3b doesn't start, and I'm getting a DCOP aborting message when I run from a terminal.  Anybody else having this problem?04:56
Hallag1Actually, I might try that04:57
xyblorHallag1: do you have an unusual keyboard type?04:57
Hallag1xyblor: No, not at all.04:57
jw144000emmajane: Yeah04:57
n8tuserverma--> i assume if you install build-essential  will install man pages04:57
reindI just installed gnome, every window I open is positioned so the title bar is offscreen, so i cant drag it into view, any ideas how to fix this? or move the windows at the least04:57
emmajanejw144000: it was an internationalization option in KDE, but I don't know how it works in gnome. Hang on and I'll see if I can find it.04:57
Jordan_UHallag1, I think xyblor is right about dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg ( though that may not help at a tty )04:57
Piciverma: manpages-dev04:57
xyblorHallag1: you want to remap keys globally?04:57
vermaPici, ah04:57
Hallag1xyblor: For some reason, though, when I hit the key labelled ' it gives me nothing. Hitting it twice give me ' . Hitting it once, plus any other letter key, gives me an accent. e.g. créme brulée04:57
vermaPici, let me try04:58
prettyrickyNew to amsn, How do I start an account -  user name and password?04:58
Piciverma: That should be the C documentation stuff04:58
Hallag1This has done this with three different keyboards, xyblor04:58
vermaPici, ahaa .. it worked .. thanks04:58
n8tuserprettyricky--> umm this is not amsn support, tried reading their register page?04:58
Hallag1So I am just intending to try and reconfigure it, because I think I did something wrong in my initial install about a year ago04:58
xyblorHallag1: wow that's weird, I have no idea what could cause that04:59
Hallag1It is useful because I can type accents easily04:59
Hallag1OTOH, I have to type " + " + shift + alt to type "04:59
prettyrickyn8tuser - was hoping someone new how. thanks!04:59
TazbobuHow do you fix LAN if it is working by IP but not by name?04:59
Viktoriousanyone know of a good program to record ur desktop but not miss frames05:00
n8tuserprettyricky--> get on to their web site for registering and there should be instructions05:00
xyblorHallag1: so do you want to chang the behaviour of ' or not?05:00
Hallag1xyblor: Yes05:00
rainwalkerViktorious: there are lots of them, but none are guaranteed not to miss frames05:00
Neronioushow do you force terminate an application (ie Firefox) ?05:00
n8tuserTazbobu--> you either use /etc/hosts or the name server05:00
Hallag1xyblor: I know not much about bindings, though05:01
bmeynelli have a 36 gig windows partition... can I merge with my current filesystem or should I keep it as a separate partition? if the latter, how do I format the windows partition into a linux filesystem?05:01
prettyrickyn8tuser ----> thank you!05:01
saxofonerNeronious: you can use xkill, but going through the system monitor in the administration menu is more complete05:01
saxofonerIt will complain it is still running if you just xkill05:01
Neronioussaxofoner: ty05:01
bmeynellor point me to a HOWTO somwhere....05:01
n8tuserprettyricky--> sowee not too helpful05:01
Hallag1xyblor: Is there a HOWTO or something you could point me at? I've been searching on and off for an answer for about a year05:02
emmajaneHallag1: for mapping?05:02
n8tuserbmeynell--> what about the existing data on it? okay to trash it?05:02
xyblorHallag1: I'm not an expert at all, it sounds like you might have some accent utility installed.05:02
Hallag1Yeah, for remapping, emmajane. It would at leasr be a starting point05:02
ClintZ28I'm trying to compile the latest kernel, 2.6.24.2 with Ubuntu Gutsy...after I extract the linux source, configure it, then run make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --initrd --append-to-version=-some-string-here kernel-image kernel-headers, the kernel is not compiled that I get the message, "No work to be done."  I have done this with an older kernel, 2.6.22, and it worked...05:03
Hallag1Haven't installed anything, it has worked like this since the start05:03
emmajaneHallag1: I'm looking for the same thing for jw144000. Hang on a sec.05:03
bmeynelln8tuser: yeah, i can kill everything on it... i have all my important files from windows on my linux partition now05:03
n8tuserClintZ28--> isnt there like a configure step you have to do before asking make to make?05:03
Crumbanyone have any luck with SND_HDA_INTEL?05:03
Hallag1Thanks, emmajane05:03
coolbhaviHello05:04
xyblorHallag1: does the behaviour of ' change with a different window manager?05:04
ClintZ28n8tuser, I just figured out the problem...I actually left off kernel-image and kernel-headers05:04
coolbhaviIf I want to give a user the ability to start and stop DNS, how would I go about doing so using Sudo?05:04
n8tuserbmeynell--> then just go ahead and reformat that partition or if you want to merge, do it..and reformat adn make a file system on it05:04
mateuszHi05:04
mateuszIs there working Sun Java for 64bit systems?05:04
bmeynelln8tuser: if I merge is all my linux data trashed?05:04
xyblorHallag1: what happens to ' in console mode? (ctrl-alt-F1)05:04
mateuszI mean plugin for firefox 64bit05:04
Jordan_U!flash64 | mateusz05:05
ubotumateusz: You can run Flash, Real, and Java plugins in AMD64 bit computers with Firefox. see the steps to follow at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FirefoxAMD64FlashJava05:05
Hallag1xyblor: No. At least, I used the XFCE window manager on my last Ubuntu install on same computer, and same thing. Thing is, I did the same thing in that setup utility on the install CD05:05
Hallag1xyblor: Same deal05:05
n8tuserbmeynell--> it is wiser to have separate partitions, dont merge them into one big pile05:05
mateuszJordan_U: I dont want 32bit hacks05:05
emmajaneHallag1: what language/locale do you want it to be?05:05
xyblorHallag1: well at least you know it's not the window manager to blame then05:05
Crumbare there more focused ubunto channels here?05:05
Hallag1emmajane: English/Australian05:05
n8tuserbmeynell--> once one partition go bad on you, you at least have other partitions..05:05
Jordan_Umateusz, I think the most recent version of iceTea is native 64 bit05:06
bmeynelln8tuser: so the question is how to turn the windows partition into linux... is there a simple command or ?05:06
mateuszJordan_U: it doesnt work05:06
mateuszJordan_U: I tried it05:06
mateuszJordan_U: and none of Java applets work05:06
emmajaneHallag1: what window manager are you using?05:06
n8tuserbmeynell--> once you get into fdisk or gparted, its pretty straightforward... gparted must be installed if you dont have it yet05:06
emmajanejw144000: Are you using the default Ubuntu install?05:06
Tu13esany ideas how Ubuntu works with a Tablet PC?05:07

bmeynelln8tuser: ok cool... i want to keep my linux data and turn my windows partition into a linux partition so to do that I run 'fdisk'05:07

bmeynelln8tuser: and how will the change affect GRUB?05:08
iceswordnotyeta, yeah05:08
n8tuserbmeynell--> yes, and delete old windows then create new linux id 83 type05:08
iceswordnotyeta, i am back .sorry05:08
n8tuserbmeynell--> you dont have grub installed on your windows partition right?05:08
emmajanejw144000: I don't see how to do the double-shift short cut in Gnome though. :(05:09
IdleOneneed some help with http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/56446/05:09
bmeynelln8tuser: i don't  believe so.... but i don't know for sure... GRUB runs right after the BIOS runs and lists all my linux installations and my windows boot option at the bottom of the list05:09
Geoffrey2I'm trying to build libexo from source, ./configure keeps telling me it can't find md5.h or md5global.h even though both are already installed....05:10
n8tuserbmeynell--> check your /boot/grub/menu.lst and it should tell you where you have grub installed05:10
emmajaneHallag1: I dont' see an Australian locale installed by default in a plain vanilla Ubuntu install...05:10
n8tuserGeoffrey2--> umm check your Makefile to make sure it points to correct header directories?05:11
saxofonerso I've got my virtualbox all set up with my windows partition to run inside of ubuntu, but I get a hard disk error.  It doesn't even make it to the "choose hardware profile" menu  I know it has something to do with SCSI and SATA, but that's all I know.05:11
emmajanejw144000: http://raviratlami1.blogspot.com/2006/10/how-to-add-another-language-and.html might also be useful.05:12

HallageMy apologies, emmajane. My X windows crashed05:17
HallageI've tried every bit of fiddling with the keyboard settings that is possible, emmajane05:17
saxofonerthey shouldn't spread unless you try to cultivate them or something... with moisture and heat05:17
daspahThere is a computer in my house running Ubuntu. I have my laptop running (ubuntu too) and want to ssh to that other computer. How can I do it? We share the same network. The Internet IP is not dynamic.05:18
xyblorsaxofoner: I thought viruses depended on flaws in memory usage and network security in Windows. Those vulnerabilities wouldn't be present if you're running wine apps through linux, right?05:18
saxofonerit could effect the virtual drive_c I think05:18
rainwalkerxyblor: yes they would, because wine creates a virtual windows drive05:18
saxofonernot your actual OS05:19
ph0rensicdaspah, You want to only have a shell or remote desktop? Because yiu can use the terminal server client thing05:19
daspahph0rensic, Shell05:19

TerrorBiteTw|sT, so you're looking at a fullsize USB HDD, rather than just a live boot from a flash drive05:51

nonix4computer_: you prolly want emerald, python-compizconfig & some others...07:50
zackienonix4: just a flat screen LCD HD Monitor i guess07:50
ph0rensicsaff, they require a full restart after you install the nvidia drivers07:50

* Manjy has a lot to install on his new ubuntu install07:51
FbernDoes  cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature return the CPU temp?07:51
alex_whenever i browse flash content the cpu usage goes up, and framerate of youtube videos is low07:51
ph0rensicsaff, after the install you have to reboot...Out of the 5-6 times Ive set this up i had to reconfigure x 1 time after installing the drivers.. but always a reboot07:51
Manjyhmm, install may take a while07:51
Manjywhat to do...07:52
c0mp13371331337TerrorBite - How does regular Ubuntu run on it?  I wanted to keep it nice and light, but I may make the switch to plain Ubuntu if it runs alright.07:52
ManjyBenny Lava tiemz07:52
EADGcomputer_: You should also install compizconfig-settings-manager. It will let you tweak all the settings and let you change kb short-cuts.07:52

c0mp13371331337TerrorBite - Hmmmm..... Thanks for the intel! :-D  I just may make the switch then.  As far as internal space goes, I've pretty much decided to limit the SSD to OS/programs, and use flash drives for files and storage.  With the exception of the 8GB model, you're pretty much forced to use external storage if you're going to be watching movies or anything on it.07:58

warchief_ryanwell bittorent depends grealty on the quality of peers and number of leechers07:59
