bsheen_that would work wonderfully once xbunutu is installed ... but with the current xubuntu 7.10 i can not get that far into the install00:04
prince_jammys__Oz__: no prob, the tty is terminology from old times00:04
root_____Odd-rationale:  shouldnt i sudo apt-get remove --purge xorg && sudo apt-get install xorg ?00:05
Devourerusr13, I'm not sure... how would I check for that in the console?00:05
bsheen_can i drop back to the command line with init=2 in boot parameters and reconfigure before the install00:05
bsheen_and will the install reflect my "live" changes00:05
msseveralex___: I don't think that it has anything to do with X; It's something to do with one of your boot scripts or something it's trying to start. The problem is determining which one.00:05

FlannelHydroxide: Not really, aptitude does some stuff with its own database, which you have to use aptitude only to reap the benefits of, apt-get has autoremove (for a while now) which fills that same gap (removing unused depends) which doesn't require you to use apt-get only.00:14

HydroxideFlannel: I know they're both available in main and very well supported. I ask because e.g. Debian has said in its release notes since sarge that aptitude was preferred because it resolved complicated dependency situations better.

Dante123so levander if I edit the fstab file- do I just comment out the drives I don't want to mount on startup by putting a # in front of the line? like this:01:13
levanderDante123: commenting out the line doesn't just turn automount off, it also turns off the ability to mount it via a simple 'mount /dev/xxx' command.  You have to do the whole 'mount /dev/xxx /mnt/xxx' and any other necessary options on that command  - which may be fine for you01:13

demon_sporkWhen I installed Ubuntu, it was /dev/sda3, but I had an empty space right in front of it. I then made a partition on that space, which changed ubuntu's partition to /dev/sda4.

LjLDianaIsGod, i'm not sure i quite remember what i did exactly. but it was most likely along the lines of sudo apt-get remove resolvconf network-manager (if i recall correctly, both are just recommended packages, not dependencies of ubuntu-desktop, so APT shouldn't complain too much).01:33
endonatlinuxnewb: I plug my computer into the tv via vga. the login screen comes up and then right when I boot into gnome the tv displays unsupported mode01:34
two_bitsjoecurlee: my guess is that it's an HDA Intel card, which is notorious for problems... theres actually an entire entry in the wiki on how to get sound from it. I solved mine by upgrading from alsa 1.0.14 to 1.0.1601:34
endonatlinuxnewb: i've tried messing with the resolutions, no luck...even the refresh rate...I can't figure it out01:34
two_bitsso that what i recommend for you01:34
prince_jammys!paste | HaXiT01:34
ubotuHaXiT: 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)01:34
HaXiTprince_jammys: ya01:34
HaXiTprince_jammys: i know01:34
natlinuxnewbWhat model and serial number is your tv?01:34
DianaIsGodhmmm, is there any other way to keep the DNS saved without killing those packages?01:34
joecurleetwo_bits: np i'll upgrade but I'm not seeing where to do this from, also i don't think it's intel as this is an amd board01:35
Kalamansihello I'm having trouble installing it into parallels for mac.  It requires a disk image?01:35
joecurleetwo_bits: also I'm getting audio just fine from all other sources01:35
natlinuxnewbendo And what do you mean via vga? the rca plugs?01:35
two_bitsjoecurlee: I am using an AMD board too, strangely enough01:35
HaXiTprince_jammys: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/56681/01:35
two_bitsjoecurlee: oh? just not from mythTV?01:35
joecurleetwo_bits: that's weird about the board... yes mythtv is basically the only trouble spot right now01:35

endonatlinuxnewb: RCA- L32WD2301:36
prince_jammysHaXiT: is the partition currently mounted?01:36
Agent_bobDianaIsGod yes.    i don't remember which script is giving you the trouble but i do remember how to find out.      sudo chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf     and reboot.   it will cause something to complain about not being able to change /etc/resolv.conf   :)01:36
HaXiTprince_jammys: yes01:36
joecurleetwo_bits: in mythtv video and remote control work fine etc. and audio works from all other sources, but mythtv will not play any sound from live tv01:36
natlinuxnewbendo ah. you mean the monitor cable?01:36
endoyeah! :)01:36
endonatlinuxnewb: yeah, thats exactly what I mean01:36
natlinuxnewbendo gotcha01:36
two_bitsjoecurlee: maybe i can't help you then, as I had no sound at ALL... still, i guess it's worth a shot... first, though, have you checked your volume sliders?01:36
joecurleetwo_bits: but I'm guessing you're right about alsa... i just have to figure out how to get it upgraded01:37
prince_jammysHaXiT: type :   mount    and pastebin01:37
endonatlinuxnewb: I gave you the wrong link actually! http://tv.rca.com/en-US/ModelDetail.html?MN=L32WD250&nav=BySize&PC=Large01:37

natlinuxnewbendo: Let us know if that works02:10

Peloomar_, it's pausing because it needs to fill the buffer,  the speeding up is a bit of a bug,  I suggest you pause the video when it starts downloading and play it only when the dl bar is filed up, you'll get a smoother play,  this also happens occasionnaly in windows, it isn't just FF in Linux02:10

Pelovix,  you can use i386 with a 64 bit processor and with 4 gb of ram no problem,  but amd64 is still lacking in propriatary driver support and in small stuff like flash and other tidbits02:14

nasamohello, how do I install DVD plugins?02:41
basculesteven__: delete and recreate them in xp disc thingy02:41
Pelodolphin_noel, in the xorg.conf file, toward the top of the file, there is a section MODULE ,  there aer several modules listed there,   put dve and the other one in that list,  taht should be it I think02:41
bascule!medibuntu > steven__02:41
=== kirby is now known as Charitwo
epssysteven_ usually you install windows xp first, onto a blank partition (or make it fat32 in gparted), then you install vista on to the second fat32 partition, then you install linux on the ext3 partition so that it gives you a bootloader that includes them all02:41
Pelo!dvd > nasamo check for a private message windows with instructions from ubotu02:41
iceswordsteven_, u format all disk to ext3?02:41

brian_hey does anyone know what to do about the autorun features? i can't get my new system to run install files02:43

Schmao-Fmaobascule: Okay, thanks :) I'll look into that03:20

Jangariit has a hard time actually shutting down sometimes, apparently, so when you boot ubuntu, it can't mount the windows partition because 'some other device (the machine itself) is using it'03:20

Schmao-Fmaobascule: I'm not quite sure if that's what I'm looking for.  Basically, when I ssh into my computer the way it is with X forwarding on, I can't get emacs to open in a separate window.  I think I'm missing Xorg or something along those lines...03:22

fdsajfdjkthanks bascule03:36
usr13pizza: none03:36
ubotuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo03:36

Laney_Familyubotu: LOL nice03:36
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about lol nice - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi03:36
bazhangLaney_Family: why do it that way? kubuntu and ubuntu differ only in the DE's, not sure about edubuntu, so it would be redundant to install to all those hdd's--best to use those as media storage devices/backup and have the main internal one as your booting os, with a seperate home partition--you can choose the session at startup (kde gnome etc) and eliminate alot of extra work03:36
ubotuFor playing DVD, see http://help.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/desktopguide/C/video.html - "libdvdcss2" can be found at !Medibuntu or (for Feisty and earlier) http://wiki.ubuntu.com/SeveasPackages - Try k9copy (available in !Universe) for backing up DVDs03:37

epssyedubuntu is basically normal ubuntu but with educational software instead03:37
^CatMan^Laney_Family: i run kubuntu and it's got a few issues, but overall, i'm happy with it :)03:37
ubotuIf you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer). If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/index.php?page=DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP303:37
ScuniziLaney_Family, I second what bazhang said.. it's much easier.. unless you're doing development tweeking and need to distroy one of the systems just for experimentation03:38
bazhangLaney_Family: and if / when you want to install a completely different distro (unlikely but might happen) then you can isntall over the / partition and /home will be left untouched03:38
Jared guys.... my "network manager" icon top right on sys tray has somehow gotten "squashed"! Now just a thin line can't see any signal bars now! (wifi).. squashed between bluetooth and the seach icon, anyone know how to restore that???03:38
Laney_FamilyBazhang: why?, because I didnt know that, lol, im rather new, i tried ubuntu when it was a mere early stages and have not been back since, so i was wanting to know the diff, learn by exp.03:38
^CatMan^bazhang: really? now's a great time to tell me that! lol03:39
steven__i have been trying for two days to get my cam working and my printer, i think im going to have to give up03:39
Laney_Familyalso the idea is to setup another sys just for my son (5 years old and can build a dead rig almost on his own!!!) and at that time just move the removeable drive over03:39
ScuniziLaney_Family, are you using ubuntu now.. how about trying "sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop" from the terminal then log out click the sessions button and change to kde.. lots of fun :)03:39
usr13steven__: What printer do you have?03:39
bazhangLaney_Family: so in the extreme unlikely situation that you want to change to #fedora, then your home partition would still be there and you could go on as usual without all the backups/headaches etc03:39
kostkonsteven__, and which webcam03:39
* ^CatMan^ agrees with Scunizi :)03:39
steven__lexmark x1290 usb all in one03:39

Scunizihw00djohn, what kind of webcam?03:40
usr13steven__: Look it up:  http://www.linux-foundation.org/en/OpenPrinting03:40
hw00djohnsteven_ how did you know?03:40
Laney_Familywell, that is realy the reason for the other drives in the rig, for data, so backup would not be an issue, and hdds are not an issue for me, i have more than enough of those...03:40
ubotuPrinting in Ubuntu is done with cups. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Printers - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportComponentsPrinters - http://linuxprinting.org - Printer sharing: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NetworkPrintingFromWindows03:40
hw00djohnscunizi i know its a logitech..but im not sure which03:40
bazhangLaney_Family: when that time comes for your son to have his own it is not a big deal to clone the system to another drive and then get it going on another computer--just food for thought and a perhaps more efficient way of doing what you are proposing03:41
Laney_Familyscunizi: it wont use sudo, says not found... nomater what command i enter03:41
kostkonhw00djohn, it does not work at all?03:41
ScuniziLaney_Family, you might also look at installing with the alternate cd since it gives you lvm (logical volume management) an easy way to use several drives as one when the need arrises.03:41
hw00djohnkostkon i plug it in adn nothing happens03:41
bazhangLaney_Family: I have to step away for a bit now, it seems that Scunizi has this in hand so if you need help he may be the go-to guy ;]03:42
Scunizihw00djohn, check out http://www.ubuntuswitch.com/2006/07/31/logitech-webcam-and-ubuntu-the-nightmare-that-wasnt/  it might help03:42
kostkonhw00djohn, of course nothing happens. did you test your cam with e.g. ekiga, camorama or cheese to see if it works?03:42
ScuniziLaney_Family, caps make a difference.. all lower case03:43
hw00djohnkostkon lol no...didnt know about those. heh03:43
Laney_FamilyALL: ok, going of the assumption i only have one drive in (the curent case) any ideas on why it loads the spalsh image with the loading bar and then this initramfs prompt???, I never actualy hit the gui, and the drive is clean, ive checked.03:43
bazhanghttp://www.linuxlove.org/2007/11/12/linux-webcam-microsoft-lifecam-nx-6000-on-ubuntu-and-fedora/ hw00djohn check if your cam is in this list--this may help03:43

Laney_FamilyI think so...03:44

usr13pocketdrummer: Scroll up.03:45
Laney_Familysplash screen, straight to the (initramfs) prompt03:45
ScuniziLaney_Family, ah.. that's part of the problem.. you can't install kubuntu-desktop with the live cd.. it takes space that you probably don't have in ram.03:46
kdc1956some dvd will work but not all on mine03:46
Laney_Familyas far as the file i downloaded, i went here: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download and chose the uper left file03:46

bluefoxxok, so after hacking apart an s-video cable and an composite video cable i got video out working for my nvidia 6200. my only problem is i wish to use the television[which displays at 1024x768] as a separate display device from my monitor[1280x1024] for showing off movies and websites, among other things. the problem here is that in nvidia-settings it will only display on the TV in twinview, with me using the TV as a cloned display04:34
bluefoxxelse i lose some of the screen...how can i get the TV as a seperate display device? as the "save to x configuration file" results in "unable to create backup ~xorg.conf in <location"04:34
geniim0u5e: np04:34
silas428can anyone help me to get an ASUS wl-167g wlan adapter to work? I can't seem to compile from the instructions it comes with04:34
zcat[1]MAA: wine is NOT simple.. you cannot just put a windows game on CD in and have it install and work, not even old crappy win98 games04:34
zulerdonglejared: oh... i thought you meant update in safe mode.. well since my laptops dvd drive has a LOT of trouble reading disks im going to trying to upgrade online and if that doesnt work ill simply try your method. thanks04:34
Estreyelaactually, that works for a lot of old games04:34
usr13Pandemic187: right click on empty spot on panel and add what you want04:34
Jared<zulerdongle: np... good luck04:35
tyronejoecurlee : I'll check it out04:35
credibleconfuse_david: just use the default driver04:35
helpppppppppWtf just happened, i minimized all my apps running, and now my desktop pictures is a massive digital slr picture, and all my icons are missing04:35
helppppppppp(11:34:37 PM) help: (under the picture, and I cant rightclick on my desktop)04:35
bluefoxxalso, is there a good manual page for nvidia-settings? i wish to know what all of these settings do...04:35
Pandemic187usr13: Right. But these aren't in the list. Trying to readd Pidgin and the network icon.04:35
jasonzulerdongle: you could also try the alternate ubuntu cd, many people who've had troubles with the normal install cd don't have problems with the alternate04:35
zcat[1]It's never worked for me, not even once, not even when I get bleeding edge versions of wine from bleeding-edge repos (budgetdedicated?)04:35
usr13Pandemic187: You have it in the Applications menu, right?04:35
EADGbluefoxx: need to run the nvidea config program as root, had that same error message awhile back.04:35
Pandemic187Which one, usr13 ?04:35
JaredThis is driving me NUTS!!!  guys.... my "network manager" icon top right on sys tray has somehow gotten "squashed"! Now just a thin line can't see any signal bars now! (wifi).. squashed between bluetooth and the seach icon, anyone know how to restore that??? Anyone help out??04:36
Gr1how do you unmount an ISO?04:36
confuse_davidcredible: ok  but if I type in glxinfo, I get this crap...http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/56688/04:36
bluefoxxlike "sync blitter to vblank on display device<TV0 or Xmon0>"04:36
usr13Pandemic187: Drag it from Applications menu to panel04:36
bluefoxxEADG, ok, will try that, ty04:36
tyronejoecurlee : right away, it looks like hardy or its future updates will support your card by default. kernel 2.6.25.. the latest is .24 i believe... and i read on..04:36
bloodhackerhey guys i am kinda new to all this xchat stuff. so is this all you guys do is talk about Ubuntu04:36
Pandemic187usr13: Right...but I want the icon that changes.04:36
joecurleetyrone: where are you seeing this at?04:36
Gr1in the ubuntu channe;04:36
usr13Pandemic187: Is it still in the trash bin?04:37

Pandemic187Does anyone know how I can get the pidgin icon back on my panel?04:38
bloodhacker what04:38
=== dgtl|screen is now known as dgtlchlk
bloodhackeris ther a rule about being off topic04:38
jasonpandemic187: you can right click on the panel and select add, then select pidgin04:39
hdevalencedoues (k)ubuntu have a thing like debian where you can download a million CDs and then install stuff without the network?04:39
Pandemic187That's not in the list, jason.04:39
zcat[1]yeah, not rigidly enforced, but if you stray too far they'll tell you off04:39
jasonpandemic187: if pidgin is on your normal menu you can also right click on the menu item and select add to panel04:39
tyronejoecurlee : did you install the firmware as well as the driver?04:39
usr13Pandemic187: apt-get remove pidgen04:40

bloodhackerzcat are you tallking to me?04:40
joecurleetyrone: yes, followed all instructions on that link04:40
Pandemic187I actually just tried that usr1304:40
confuse_davidcredible: hey here it is http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/56691/04:40
Pandemic187Unless it would require a reboot or something04:40
=== faggot is now known as boston
jasonlinux should never require a reboot outside of kernel updates04:41
usr13Pandemic187: I dono :)04:41
zcat[1]bloodhacker: yes .. I don't always bother with the name first tho :)04:41
credibleconfuse_david: wow, try this: sudo apt-get --reinstall install xserver-xorg-core04:41
zcat[1]jason: hoe about updates to init ?04:41
Pandemic187How can there be no way to get it back?04:41
tyronejoecurlee : can you confirm that your lspci -vvnn output matches the page's output?04:41
joecurleetyrone: i'm more or less a newb with linux, how do i do so?04:41
bloodhackerzcat how do i tallk to just you? like you are doing to me..04:41
usr13Pandemic187: You prolly already got it back.  Fire it up and see.04:41
confuse_davidcredible: what is so amazing?04:41
wwalkerHow do I play real Media files under ubuntu?04:41
zcat[1]bloodhacker: just type the name first.04:42
Pandemic187I did.04:42
tyronejoecurlee : have you ever used a terminal/command line before?04:42
usr13wwalker: Instal realplayer04:42
bloodhackerzcat like this04:42
Pandemic187It didn't come back, usr1304:42
credibleconfuse_david: that you're missing the actual libglx.so04:42
zcat[1]bloodhacker: yeah04:42
joecurleetyrone: yes everyday :) but on os x04:42
neolith2099where can I find a hardware compat list for ubuntu?04:42
bloodhackerzcat oo ok i see04:42
confuse_davidcredible: ok i just did.  really.04:42
joecurleetyrone: just need to know the command04:42
confuse_davidcredible: i just installed04:42
bloodhackerzcat man this is razzy cool04:42
credibleconfuse_david: now restart X04:42
usr13Pandemic187: Ctrl-Alt-Backspace04:43
bloodhackerzcat i am new to xchat04:43
confuse_davidcredible: how do you restart x or do you mean restart computer?04:43
Pandemic187Restart X?04:43
nano__hey guys, i just connected my ipod to my ubuntu system (after i installed gtkpod) and somehow my ipod was automatically mounted to /media/xxxxxxx  ...... but there is no corresponding entry in fstab , so how could this be?04:43
Pandemic187Okay I'll try that.04:43
tyronejoecurlee : well don't sweat it.. os x and linux are relatives. Just open up a term.. if you don't know where look in applications accessories. Then type in lspci -vvnn | less04:43
credibleconfuse_david: log out and hit ctrl+alt+backspace04:43
zcat[1]bloodhacker: this is not a great channel to start out on, lots of traffic so it's hard to follow, plus we're gonna get told off for beinf OT soon :)04:44
akbrennanhi all04:44
geniinano__: fstab does not usually hold transient or temporary media.04:45
Pandemic187Yep, didn't work.04:45
neolith2099bloodhacker, join the party..in a channel of 1100+ people!04:45
bloodhackerzcat oooo i thot only me and yo could see this04:45
bloodhackerzcat ok04:45
zcat[1]bloodhacker: nope..04:45
tyronejoecurlee : just so you know, ls is the list command, and lspci is a command that lists all known pci connections, | is pipe (you probably know that), and less is a term program that makes it easier to scroll through output04:45
wwalkerusr13: got an apt source for that?04:45
neolith2099bloodhacker: we all C U!04:45
dygitalHello. Is there an app that does similar functions like CCleaner does on windows?04:45
usr13wwalker: For what?04:45
bluefoxxEADG, ok, seems to have saved, going to restart X now...04:45
nano__genii: so fstab typically holds permanent (ie. always physcially connected) volumes04:45
joecurleetyrone: cool... so there is a tone of output from that though04:45
emmajanegenii: I thought it did for CDROM drives... or is that the old way of doing things?04:45
wwalkerusr13: sorry, realplayer04:45
joecurleetyrone: don't want to post it all here... anything to look for?04:46
nano__emmajane: good point....cdroms are temporary?04:46
nano__i would think04:46
usr13wwalker: Oh, I dono, just go to http://www.real.com/linux04:46
confuse_davidcredible: THANK YOU04:46
emmajanenano__: Well you have to unmount a CD to pop it out of the player...04:46
geniinano__: The removable things can also have fstab entries like CD. But it does not always know aead of time what things you are plugging in for instance until you do it.04:46
tyronejoecurlee : try to compare it to the output on that page you sent me04:47
dygitalHello. Is there an app that does similar functions like CCleaner does on windows?04:47
zcat[1]what does ccleaner do?04:47
dygital(sent again, thought it got lost in the answers above...)04:47
dygitalit cleans out all the caches and temp files04:48
nano__genii: so wat ur trying to say is that although a cd can contain anything, fstab anticipates that a cd drive is physically connected, as opposed to an external usb stick for example04:48
usr13wwalker: sudo sh RealPlayer10GOLD.bin04:48
mohadib_dygital rm -Rf /tmp/*04:48
tyronejoecurlee : if it makes you feel any better i'm having problems of my own with drivers... i'm trying to make one but i'm missing the most critical file on my system :(04:48
emmajane(back in teh day you could also put memory sticks into /etc/fstab)04:48
dygitalmoh: ok...04:48
bluefoxxEADG, ok, it worked but now i lost my compiz, which i need for certain things[gdesklets for example, are not working...]04:48
geniinano__: You can add removable media to fstab, is best to use options like sync for writeable media. Aslo the uuid and not /dev name since an usb drive can be sdb one day and sdc another day depending how many you have and what order you plug them in04:48
dygitalbut there's other caches too, right? like apt-get autoclean, etc04:48
dygitalfirefox's cache04:49
zcat[1]you can still put memory sticks in fstab ... jyou just gotta trust that they'll always get detected as the same device04:49
nano__genii: what do entries such as UUID=506c9742-a80a-4971-99d4-ab610765335f  in my fstab mean?  I would think that these are volume labels. but what does the acronym UUID sand for?04:49
mohadib_dygital no app like that that i am aware of04:49
nano__*stand for04:49
dygitalmaybe if I learned a bit of bash scripting, I could have it do that.04:49
geniizcat[1]: Hence my recommend for uuid04:49
* emmajane nods at genii about the sdb and sdc bit.04:49
EADGbluefoxx: I don't really know anything about compiz, I spend most my time on the console.04:49
confuse_davidcredible: can you explain what I did04:49
mohadib_dygital  make a file with #!/binbash at the top , then put one bash command per line04:50
computer_what is a good gui program to make .iso files?04:50
mohadib_should be pretty east04:50
bluefoxxEADG, ah, ok04:50
zcat[1]genii: D'Oh!! Than has been bothering me for ages.. I have a friend uses text only (he's blind) so I put his mp3 player in fstab.. I just figured out I should be using the UUID not /dev/sda :)04:50
emmajanenano__ http://www.google.ca/search?q=define%3Auuid04:50
geniinano__: uuid= universally unique identifier ...like a MAC for network04:50
dygitalcomputer: i found a good one earlier tonight... "AcetoneISO"04:50
EADGbluefoxx: Ask away though, I'm sure somebody in here knows something, might try #compiz also.04:50
nano__thanks guys04:50
dygitalalso K3B04:50
bluefoxxso anyone else know how i can keep seperate Xscreens[moniter and TV] and still have all my compiz? i have my window bar plauged by all my desklets04:51
geniizcat[1]: Heh :) Hopefully you know about blkid then04:51
MarupaIs there a way to copy an entire file system over to another drive but /keep/ all the permissions?  I need to transport an entire installation from one drive to another over SSH.  Is it possible?04:51
dygitalmohadib: i'll try that. thanks04:51
credibleconfuse_david: somehow you deleted /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libglx.so04:51
mohadib_Marupa yes04:51
emmajaneMarupa: using the -p parameter will "keep permissions" assuming the user exists on both systems (if across a network)04:51
zcat[1]genii: cos sometimes it comes up as /dev/sdb and he can't mount it (gets a bit confused about how to find it and mount it with teh full mount options)04:51
mohadib_tar up all the partions04:51
Marupaemma, scp?  or what?04:52
mohadib_and trasnfer with ssh04:52
mohadib_and untar04:52
emmajaneMarupa: scp -pr localfilestomove login@remotesite04:52
mohadib_(After you partion)04:52
joecurleetyrone: thanks for the help thus far, checking the output now... i've had nothing but frustrations since day one with this system, but i've made some real progress with it... the capture card is the last step04:52
emmajaneMarupa: that's what I use (secure copy)04:52
Marupaemma, THANK you :D  My drive crashed.04:52
hw00djohnanyone care to help me wiht my webcam?04:52
geniizcat[1]: When you have a drive plugged in, the command blkid should tell the UUID when it exists (some removable media do not have them, oddly)04:52
Marupaemma, have to do it as root, most likely then, right/04:52
emmajaneMarupa: ruhoh! because you tried to do secure copy onto it?!04:52
zcat[1]genii: yeah, I've used that when I clone an install from one disk to another, have to rewrite the id's in fstab and grub04:52
Marupaemma, No, drive failure.  Trying to salvage it.04:52
emmajaneMarupa: AHH! I thought you meant I caused it to crash. ;)04:53
emmajane(check the nick... you'll get emma all excited. I'm emmajane)04:53
dygitalmohadib, should I use "#!/binbash" or "#!/bin/bash" ?04:53
Odd-rationaleWhat was the "Print Current Directory" command again?04:53
dygitalcool. thx04:53
EADGOdd-rationale: pwd04:53
Odd-rationaleok Thanks!04:53
emmajaneMarupa: You need to have permission on the remote drive to put the files there and read permission on the local drive. Otherwise, you're right... use root.04:54
tyronejoecurlee : believe me, I started two years ago and I had to endure crashes every other minute for 30 restarts in a day. all random. In two years, linux has jumped from ok to great.. at this rate, hardy will solve half our problems. Hang on for a few more kernel releases and you'll be amazed.04:54
Marupaemmajane, any pitfalls you know about, or should I be able to sudo scp -pr / somedest@somedest?04:54
confuse_davidcredible: so you had me do "sudo apt-get install xorg-driver-fglrx" and that resinstalled libglx?04:54
killownow do i convert a tar.bz2 to a tar.gz?04:54
credibleconfuse_david: nope04:54
emmajaneMarupa: hrm. It won't warn you if you're about to overwrite something. That's the only one I can think of.04:54
mohadib_Marupa i would not do that04:54
credibleconfuse_david: you don't need fglrx, I had you reinstall the xserver-xorg-core package04:54
mohadib_Marupa at least tar up /04:54
fuffaloHow do I mount a folder on another ubuntu box on my machine (if i have ssh access)04:54
Marupaemma, the destination drive is blank.04:54
mohadib_movine files with scp has a lot of overhead04:54
Marupamohadib_, Not enough room.04:54
mohadib_so complress them04:55
emmajanemohadib_: can't you copy the whole drive image and mount it elsewhere?04:55
mohadib_it will takr forrever to move all those small files04:55
MarupaI've only got 2GB free, and it's taking up 4.04:55
mohadib_emmajane sure can04:55
EADGfuffalo: sshfs remoteip:/dir /local/mount/piont04:55
confuse_davidcredible: oh ok04:55
Marupamohadib_, gigabit ethernet :304:55
switch__killown: unzip with bzip and then compress it with gzip04:55
JangariMarupa: what about sshfs'ing to the server? takes the annoying bits out ofscp'ing04:55
mohadib_Marupa your connection will not be the bottle neck i would guess04:56
joecurleetyrone: yea i'm pretty much in for the long haul now... i've spent too many nights on this to quit :)04:56
mohadib_Marupa encryption is not cheap04:56
emmajanemohadib_: what's the syntax for it? I always forget... maybe Marupa should use that instead?04:56
dygitalmohadib, should I save the bash script with a .sh or something?04:56
Marupalet me finish partitioning my destination drive...04:56
bluefoxxok, so i have a second moniter going in the form of an CRT telivisionthat i want to use as a dedicated moniter for movies, but after getting it going seperately[it only worked as twinview cloned] i have lost my compiz effects, including a important one like widget layer and annotations. how can i get these back. oh and the computer that has the problem is the one im typing this from, only one that will connect to the internet and t04:56
bluefoxxhus is my main04:56
mohadib_emmajane for making an image or taring up something?04:56
emmajanemohadib_: for making an image. I used to do that for backups...04:57
mohadib_emmajane you can use dd easily enogh dd if=/ of=dirve.iso04:57
emmajanemohadib_: and then mount the partition on the other machine...04:57
switch__My operating system is requiring me to have superuser privilege to listen on port 80 but not on some other ports.  What's the deal with this?04:57
mohadib_then you mount as a loopback device iirc04:57
* emmajane nods that looks familiar.04:57
confuse_davidcredible: ok I have only one more question.  what is the purpose that log file you had me paste?04:57
mohadib_been a while04:57
dygitalmohadib_,  how do I run the script I made04:58
* emmajane nods to mohadib_ the mount as loopback device is definitely right.04:58
mohadib_chmod +x  script  ./script04:58
* emmajane nods and checks to see if she's got it written down.04:58
MarupaSo, can someone PM me the fastest method to grab all the files, keeping permissions, users, and grab every file?04:58
mohadib_mount -o loop lol04:58
emmajaneMarupa:  is it a linux machine you're trying to restore/save/etc?04:58
mohadib_i forget04:58
sluggoswitch__: all ports 1024 and below require root privileges04:58
mohadib_its right in the man04:58
switch__thanks sluggo.04:59
Marupaemmajane.  dying machine is debian, my comp is ubuntu.04:59
dygitalMarupa, netcat if over the network, I think. Locally, the DD command works well.04:59
joecurleetyrone: the first difference is the latency... on the website it's 32, mine is 64 not sure what that means though04:59
emmajaneMarupa: go with the solution that we're trying to work out for the full disk image.05:00
mohadib_emmajane yes , its mount -o loop05:00
joecurleealso, th capabilities for me say "access denied" not sure if that's because i ran your command without sudo or because there's a problem05:00
emmajaneMarupa: then it'll be like mounting your old hardrive as a perfectly intact unit on your new system.05:00
tyronejoecurlee : latency is an issue on the scheduling for the interupts, I believe. had a little experience with a low latency kernel in ubuntu-studio... Assuming everything is correct.. I will try and find an error guide. Tell me, did you get any errors at all during/after the install?05:00
Some_PersonHow do I make this thing collate?05:01
Marupaemmajane, as long as all the users/permissions are intact, awesome.05:01
emmajaneMarupa: I don't see why they wouldn't be.05:01
Marupaemmajane, even if they don't exist on the destination drive?05:02
emmajaneMarupa: you're copying a snapshot of the system, not the files themselves (it'll only be one huge file)05:02
Some_PersonHow do I print with collate?05:02
joecurleetyrone: no errors at all... also i ran command again with sudo and this time i see the capabilities info05:02
Marupawell...Hold on.05:02
MarupaWhat I want to do is this:05:02
tyronejoecurlee : Oh, and maybe the module isn't loading at all.05:02
joecurleetyrone: how do i check on that?05:02
tyronejoecurlee : that's interesting. I gotta find the name of the driver.. what is it?05:02
emmajaneMarupa: you'll get random numbers instead of legit users/groups if they don't exist, but you'd have that anyway and they'll fix themselves if you remount after creating the appropriate users.05:02
joecurleetyrone: the name of the driver?05:03
tyronejoecurlee :yes05:03
MarupaI have a failing drive in a linux box.  I have a destination drive in my current box that, after copying the files to it, will go BACK into the server as a replacement drive.05:03
Some_PersonHow do I get this darn thing to collate?05:03
dygitalMarupa, I tried the command like you mentioned, and it didn't work. When I try to execute the script, it says its not found.  I'm running it from the same folder. In the terminal, it gives me "bash: wipetemp: command not found" (I've named it wipetemp)05:03
joecurleetyrone: i honestly have no idea... it's provided by video 4 linux... you have to download the "v4l-dvb tree"05:03
Plighthey, are there any open source webcam drivers?05:04
norml_advocatecan I talk about audacity on this channel?  or is there a better one?05:04
emmajaneMarupa: if you have a disk image you can move that .img file anywhere and mount it. MUCH cleaner than copying.05:04
dygitalerr, for mohadib_  **05:04
mohadib_copying / over ssh seems tiresome05:04
norml_advocatecan I talk about audacity on this channel?  or is there a better one?05:04
* emmajane nods to mohadib_. Agreed now that I understand...05:04
Marupaemmajane, But it wouldn't work, I dont think.  Technically I'm wanting to mirror from one drive to another manually, to replace the drive physically.05:05
Some_PersonWhere is the option to make this damn thing collate?05:05
norml_advocatehow do I make audacity work?05:05
tyronejoecurlee : alright then... try lsmod | grep v | less   The v is since no matter what it should start with that..05:05
norml_advocatei do not have any editing options05:05
vbabiy-laptophey guys what packages would i have to install to do development with gtk2.005:05
MarupaI can't have an image file only.  That's pretty worthless in a headless server.05:05
* dygital waits patiently for mohadib_ to school me. 05:05
caghey I know I should ask this in #xubuntu but no one is responding...05:05
mohadib_dygital you had another question?05:05
tyronejoecurlee : if that doesn't turn up.. try lsmod | less    and browse to see if you can find something like that05:05
joecurleetyrone: ok what am i looking for with this output?05:06
dygitalmohadib_, I tried the command like you mentioned, and it didn't work. When I try to execute the script, it says its not found.  I'm running it from the same folder. In the terminal, it gives me "bash: wipetemp: command not found" (I've named it wipetemp)05:06
mohadib_my irc client does not highlight my nick , so kind of hard to keepup :p05:06

tyronejoecurlee : from what I can tell, most people are using it for tvtime.. whatever that is05:16
dygitalchronos, I would try to take a look in the case, and see if there's any blockage of airflow over the SB... that usually gets got from HDD activity.05:16
joecurleetyrone: at first vlc would give me video and crappy sound, then after upgrading my ALSA drivers i couldn't get audio at all05:16
s0ulstice_hw00djohn, There are many pages that describe how to do this.. I like thunderbird better than evolution05:17
joecurleetyrone: tvtime? wtf? ok i'll take a look at that05:17
tyronejoecurlee : sounds like alsa is improperly configured. or mythtv is.05:17
s0ulstice_hw00djohn, make sure you go into your gmail account and enable pop3 too05:17
s0ulstice_hw00djohn, But I believe it is SSL and its pop.gmail.com and smtp.gmail.com for outgoing05:18
joecurleetyrone: that's what i thought too, but i tried all possible settings with mythtv. i wouldn't doubt if it's on alsa's end, however all other video (from dvds or trailers online) plays perfectly with audio05:18
s0ulstice_hw00djohn, sudo apt-get install thunderbird if you want it05:18

joecurleetyrone: tvtime looks like garbage, i'd rather not install it :)05:19
tyroneJoecurlee : I think this might be a busted driver build. I just found that support for the card just came out in late january, and this IS a cvs build. Maybe someone is tweaking it at the moment. In that case, it could explain the issues. Alot of people have varying success with it, since that part of cvs is under heavy work05:19
AlphinuxHi, a friend of mine has a Live DVD Ubuntu 2.6.22. Do you know what's the root passwd?05:19
s0ulstice_Alphinux, There is no root password05:19
ubotuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo05:19
joecurleetyrone: i see, i didn't think of that, and it does make some sense05:19
pmratpoisonbut it's ubuntu / ubuntu05:20
pmratpoisonif you restart X05:20
pmratpoisonI think that is05:20
dygitalchronos, SB = Southbridge... it's a chip on the motherboard with a small heatsink on it (think: metal with fins) ... usually located "south" of the processor area.05:20
joecurleetyrone: i wonder if there is a stable build. is it easy to remove the drivers, or if i reinstall following the same steps will they just get overwritten?05:20
Flannelpmratpoison: no, there is a blank password.  But even then, that's not the root password05:20
tyronejoecurlee : in this phase of dev, it can get torn appart overnight and rebuilt the next day05:20

norml_advocat2pmratpoison:  how do I make your name come up in yellow when I type you a message?05:24
tyronejoecurlee : I've found alot of posts saying that sound support is currently botched but work is ongoing. Again, should be integrated by kernel .25 . In that case, you won't have to mess with anything to get the module up05:24
s0ulstice_dom_, So what happened? You lost your vista partition, or what05:24
dom_s0ulstice_: no, it's still there. in fact, i can mount it from linux05:24
dygitalSo I checked out AWN... and it seems like a PIA to install. Isn't there a debian package available?05:24
joecurleetyrone: when is kernel .25 supposed to hit?05:25
s0ulstice_dom_, But what, you cant boot to it?05:25

dom_when booting safe mode, it lists "CRCDISK.SYS" as the last entry05:25
pmratpoisonright = write, pardon my typos05:25
norml_advocat2gotcha, so how do you make mine come up in yellow?05:26
s0ulstice_dom_, Hmm thats weird.. so its just hanging there then? All the files are still there when you mount it in linux?05:26

t_ridiculous! FUCKING RIDICULOUS!05:29
tyronejoecurlee : I'm not sure when for the kernel, but I do know it is the one under dev, since .24 is out. I really think hardy will be using it. Most likely it will come as an update if it doesn't. and I've also found that hd is an issue at the moment, but the framework is in place. I would expect that your issues will get fixed soon enough. Some users have reported moderate success on both ends though. http://linuxtv.org/pipermail/li05:29

tanubisbullgard4 check "man pgrep" "man pkill"05:36
dom_i believe that's what the extra NTFS partition is for05:36
urbusheyi cant find a plug-in or anything that would add podcast functionality05:36
s0ulstice_dom_, haha cheap bastards.. what did they do provide a ghost partition?05:36
reasonsnorml, like a song is 30 seconds long and you only want tine 10 to 20?05:36
Schmao-FmaoHi there, how do I get a list of process id's that are started by a certain user? I've been using "top -b -n 1 | grep username" but that's a bit slow ...05:36
s0ulstice_dom_, yah m$ cheap bastards05:36
tanubisbullgard4 if you wanted to duplicate the kill window command from command line, you'd use pgrep to find the name of the process you want and pkill to terminate it05:36
dom_pretty much05:37
puxelhmm. didnt fix anything05:37
reasonsschmao, use htop, it'll say what users are using what05:37
dom_s0ulstice_: i tried booting from it as well, it just gives a black screen05:37
norml_advocat2reasons that or a song is 5 min. long and i just want 10 secs05:37
reasonsgive me a bit and a man page :)05:37
s0ulstice_puxel, maybe tyr reinstalling emerald? I dunno if there is anything else it relies on to draw the title bars.. I just know I restart emerald to fix mine05:37
dygitalwell thanks for the help mohadib_  et al. Have a good night.05:37
urbusheyoooh i just found an amarok channel05:38
urbusheyill go bother them05:38
s0ulstice_dom_, Booting from the restore drive gives you just a black screen?05:38
norml_advocat2reasons whats a man page?05:38
s0ulstice_norml_advocat2, Manual05:38
Schmao-Fmaoreasons, any programs that come standard that do the same thing? :) I'm only asking because I have 15 computers, and to use htop I'd have to install it on each one05:38
puxelwill do.05:38
dom_s0ulstice_: yes. i can't figure this damned thing out :-/05:38
tanubisbullgard4 for example, if I wanted to kill my browser, I could pgrep firefox and then pkill <idnumber from pgrep> to terminate it05:38
Dr_pSiEhey guys hast anyone tried hardy beta yet on a 64 cpu?05:39
s0ulstice_dom_, that sucks...hmmm....dunno05:39
norml_advocat2whats a "bit"  some time, or something else thats a nerd code ;-)05:39
s0ulstice_Dr_pSiE, No I have gutsy on 64 though... working very smooth05:39
reasonsSchmoa, not that I'm aware of, but htop is so small that even a dialup connection will get it in under a minute. It really is a must have as you can sort by cpu, mem, etc. as well as being colored.05:40
Dr_pSiEwell since my last kernel update hardy isn't working as smooth as it was before05:40
Schmao-Fmaoreasons, sweet :) I'll install it then05:40
ckin2001Schmao-Fmao, ps aux | grep "username" | awk '{ print $2 }'05:40
tanubisbullgard4 Also, you could use the command pstree -p to see a list of running processes laid out as an ascii diagram, and pskill id# to terminate05:40
s0ulstice_Dr_pSiE, Hardy is +1 .. maybe try that channel?05:40

geniinorml_advocat2: What cfedde said.05:42
bullgard4tanubis: Your explanations are helpful, and I thank you for them. --  My outset was that a communication program prevented me from terminating my Epiphany. Even using the 'Force Quit Button' could not kill the remnants of Epiphany. Only using 'killall epiphany' killed the remnants. So I wonder what the 'Force Quit Button' really does.05:42

ckin2001norml_advocat2, ninjas cannot ask for the path - they must find the way alone05:44

s0ulstice_dom_, That is a good question haha.. I don't know.. haven't worked with vista much05:44
FXI had kubuntu but instead of downloading the whole ubuntu cd to change over I just apt-got ubuntu-desktop and then removed everything kde. lol05:44
norml_advocat2im not a malicious person I just want free web access05:44
dom_s0ulstice_: not really a vista thing05:44
tanubisbullgard4 anytime.  I suppose if one was really curious, one could always find the source code and take a gander.  My guess would be that it looks for the process ID of the window you click, and kills that.  But if a parent process has hung, sometimes the child process that's displaying the window maybe doesn't work?  I could be way off though.05:44

silas428Are reverse-engineers considered crackers??05:53
nickruds0ulstice_: :p05:53
s0ulstice_norml_advocat2, cracker cracks security passwords, reverse engineer software etc, a hacker just pushes hardware and software beyond its original intended limits05:53
bullgard4ckin2001: So I need to enquire more on 'soft kill' in order to find out?05:53
silas428I read some of their stuff, I think they like the word "crack"05:53

silas428s0ulstice_:wouldn't cracking be something illegal? I know RCE isn't illegal if the source code was never used05:54

codyduncannickrud: that does not solve it05:56
silas428jc: its a gui for iptables, pretty much all i know05:56
ckin2001bullgard4, killall gets all instances of a process name, not just the one associated with 1 pid05:56
reasonsWaffle, this would be a great time for me to use amarok, huh? :) When I did use it there should be a drop box for device manager, check through the settings if it's not there. Once you find it, and I know it exists, look for your monunted ipod in the list and say to use that device05:56
nickrudcodyduncan: hm.05:56
s0ulstice_norml_advocat2, haah your funny05:57
reasonsWaffle, if you already did that and I read you wrong, there should be a sync button in the top bar05:57
jcsilas428, thanks, if thats the case then after I configure it does it need to be running?05:57
bullgard4ckin2001: Ah! Thank you very much for explaining.05:57
nickrudcodyduncan: a silly question: you do still have the system tray.05:57

nickrudcodyduncan: it's called the notification area (system tray is the old name, sorry)05:59
computer_i am running vista on vmware05:59
jcsilas428, so guarddog and firestarter do different things?05:59
silas428jc: guarddog is to setup a firewall, firestarter is a GUI for the iptables on Ubuntu05:59
s0ulstice_norml_advocat2, You know how to read right?05:59
reasonsThat would mean the ipod isn't mounted and if it is, amarok isn't noticing. When you first started amarok with your ipod mounted it should have asked to use it. What we need to do is find that setting.05:59
codyduncannickrud: well done, thanks mate06:00
s0ulstice_norml_advocat2, do a google search for backtrack3 and download it06:00
nickrudcodyduncan: you're welcome06:00
silas428jc: from what I seen from firestarter, it shows the activity on your network and lets you block ports06:00
norml_advocat2s0ulstice who is ESR?06:00
cfeddeeric s raymond06:00
* nickrud boggles at the thought that someone wants to be a hacker, and doesn't know who esr is06:00
jcsilas428, ok so I guess i'm confused, I thought iptables was the firewall in ubuntu06:00
silas428norml_advocat2: he co-founded the Open Source Initiative06:00

norml_advocat2silas428 well thankyou for clearing that up smartypants06:01
silas428jc: I'm not an expert so don't quote me, but I think they are two different things, not 100% on this06:01
reasonsWaffle, also, do you have libgpod installed06:01
tanubisbullgard4 if you type that in and hit enter, you basically get the exact same thing as what the force kill does06:01
nickrudnorml_advocat2: there's even a virtual eric s raymond in your repos, install vrms ;)06:01

norml_advocat2then run the GUI06:41
norml_advocat2using startx apparently06:41
AtomicSparknorml_advocat2: no. unfortunately, ubuntu doesnt use run levels. in other distros, you can change your run level to 3, and everything will be terminal only. you may beable to log out and change your session to terminal only. i am not sure. once gnome or kde is installed, it takes over. :P06:42
TurtleOfDoomnorml_advocat2: well, "sudo apt-get remove gdm" will remove the graphical startup program from your computer, that will start it in a terminal, then you have to set it up to you can run "startx" and it will load into gnome06:42
AtomicSparkstartx starts xserver/x11 not gnome :P but yes it would get you into gui06:43

norml_advocat2turtleofdoom what does atomicspark mean by levels?06:47

norml_advocat2can you move through the levels without rebooting?06:48
TurtleOfDoomnorml_advocat2: level x would start you at a console, level y would start you with a pretty GUI, to answer your question, I beleive so, but it has been several years, and as someone reminded me ubuntu doesn't do things that way06:49

AtomicSparknorml_advocat2: internet speak. ha. you need to learn ninja hacking skillz. but anyways. 1. its only supported on a few wireless cars, which you probably dont have. 2. to get it working on other cards is almost impossible sometimes requiring custom linux binaries. 3. only works on wep, which nobody should ever, ever use.07:20

jimlayI have an ubuntu 32bit setup w/ encrypted root (setup with 7.10 upgraded to hardy) and I wanted to test try 64bit ubuntu. In the install of the 64bit ubuntu I told it that the encrypted partition was encrypted and tried to mount it. I carefully read everything to make sure it wasn't going to clobber anything. Eventually I got to a screen where I couldn't mount the partition w/o formatting it - even though I'd used the same partition. Anyway,07:23
AtomicSparkjink1: i used to use vmware when i was mostly on windows.07:23

AtomicSparkjimlay: the whole point of the encryption is so nobody can mount it randomly. you'll have to unencrypt it somehow before using it.07:24

Tensopi want to >> the output to a .htm07:36
jimlayAtomicSpark: no. I told the setup utility (textmode - I don't know the name) to use the hda5 partion as a luks crypt device just like I had the first time (same partition) and when it asked for the key I gave it the same key. I feel I've narrowed down what happened - and I'm pretty sure that when I said "use this as an encrypted partition" it went ahead and ran luksFormat on the block device w/o notifying me that it was doing it. I assumed i07:36
