macheeLooking for how to fix a "No such file or directory" error when trying to run a binary that definitely exists.  I'm running 64 bit.  Could that matter?00:15
Kuniext3 keeps itself defragged as much as possible.00:16
Flannelmachee: what command are you doing exactly?00:16
BlueEelwooohoo! download finally at 100%... now, where are those blank cd's ?00:16
mad_max02no need for any extra tools or maintance ?00:16
iceswordmachee, you tried chmod +x file00:16
Kunimachee, make sure it's executable (chmod +x)00:16
Xorothalmad_max02: nope00:16
macheeFlannel: ./q3ded in the folder where ti is, and it's definitely got execute permissions00:16
redf1shmachee: If your 64 bit, a 32 bit binary might be looking for the wrong libraries. That prints out "no such file".00:16
noolnesshmmmm what do people consider the "best" linux filesystem at the moment?00:16
mad_max02one more plus for linux00:17
Generalizeddoes anyone have any idea how to fix this00:17
Xorothalmad_max02: though I would consider switching to reiserfs00:17
Flannelmachee: and `ls -al | grep q3ded` shows it?00:17
noolnessi know ext3 is pretty junky00:17
macheeFlannel: yes00:17
mad_max02Xorothal, why ?00:17
Flannelmachee: Mind pasting that line, just for yucks?00:17
noolnessfor example if you overwrite parts of a file and your computer fails or reboots, you could corrupt the file00:17
macheeredf1sh: that makes sense... any way to know what libraries it may be?00:17
mad_max02and why is ext3 junky ?00:17
iceswordnoolness, you creat a fs yourself,then it is the best00:17
Flannelnoolness: No, ext3 is journaled.00:17
GewoonM2arekkusu14: what kind of printer do you have? Have you tried google-ing: "<printer name + type> linux", to check if others have gotten it to work?00:17
Xorothalmad_max02: It's just better (ie too tired to explain)00:17

nickrudGeneralized: not sure about what I'd do on your system. I'd be willing to do it here, cuz I'd take responsibility for messing with users and groups. Not so sure I'm ready to do that on yours00:18
redf1shmachee: I strace things, but I'm a dev. You can probably get it to work by doing an apt-get install ia32-lib*00:18
mad_max02Xorothal, I asked much people about file system and whats the best for etc00:18
redf1shmatchee that installes 32 bit compatibility libraries00:18
mad_max02Xorothal, I got so many diff answers00:18
Generalizedwhats your idea nickrud00:18
redf1shmatchee pretty slick really.00:18
mad_max02Xorothal, so I went on and formated in ext3 since I'm most familiar with it00:19
johndbrittonhow do you find the UUID of a drive00:19
iceswordGeneralized, i recommend you try sudo apt-get clean00:19
Flannel!uuid | johndbritton00:19
ubotujohndbritton: To see a list of your devices/partitions and their corresponding UUID's, run this command in a !shell: « sudo blkid » (see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LibAtaForAtaDisks for the rationale behind the transition to UUID)00:19
Xorothalmad_max02: it's your choice00:19
noolnessi used ext3 on linux just because it's the default at the moment ;)00:19
mad_max02Xorothal, I dont know about other but I'll try to read as much as possible and learn00:19
macheeredf1sh: i will try that out, thanks!00:19
AlexKiblerAh, googling shows that not much can be done00:19
redf1shmachee: I'm palying quake wars with that, generally works.00:19
nickrudGeneralized: add a postfix user and group. But, since I don't have postfix installed here (and have no intention of it) I don't know the correct settings for the user. Things I'd do on my machine that's unorthodox I won't do here for others.00:19
redf1shmachee: cheers.00:19
mad_max02Xorothal, is there any way to later convert to any other file system from ext3 without formating ?00:19
Generalizedcan i remove postfix safely?00:20
noolnessi don't know i watch some demo for haiku and their filesystem seems interesting. it's basically the beos filesystem, which means it has cool stuff like search built in and stuff00:20
nickrudGeneralized: yes.  I'm gonna go have a cigarette, and think a bit00:20
Xorothalmad_max02: to reiserfs, no. I created a separate reiserfs partition and copied everything00:20
macheeredf1sh: gotcha. i'm actually trying to setup a Quake 3 dedicated server, hah00:20
noolnessto do that on linux though you would need to have all new command line tools for a lot of things00:20
noolnesslike the standard find wouldn't be good enough to exploit a more advanced filesystem00:21
mad_max02can you imagine how much time I spent on formating over 2TB from NTFS to ext300:21
Mightypeoguys - i got a hardware question ? sorta00:21
Xorothalnoolness: No I just did my /home partition with cp -avx00:21
Kunimad_max02: don't worry about it. EXT3 isn't going to destroy your computer or anything if you already installed.00:21
redf1shmachee: Check google if that don't work, I'm sure someones had to.00:21
AlexKiblerNope.  Lexmark offers no support for my printer.00:21
Xorothalmad_max02: 50GB took me ~30mins00:21
mad_max02Kuni, I hope so coz I have a lot of data that needs to be safely tucked away on my HDDs00:22
noolnessyeah ext3 is a working filesystem, there are much better filesystems, but meh00:22
macheeredf1sh: only thing i've seen on google about it was using linux32 to run the installer.. seems like that did the trick for everyone00:22
Kunimad_max02: yeah, don't worry.00:22
macheeredf1sh: let me install it, but then this00:22
mad_max02Xorothal, now multiply that with 40 :D00:22
noolnessbut if you check out the wiki article it does have a few flaws, but it makes sense since it has to be compatbile with ext200:22
redf1shmachee: aight. Let me know hwo it goes.00:22
Xorothalmad_max02: 2 hours...00:22
Xorothalnot that bad00:22

orphevlt: if you have not played with your default configs on your client side so the file in ~/.ssh/config i think , the redirection works with default parameters and it work00:37

kazol_How do I permanently remove an application, including the settings? apt-get remove --purge does not delete the settings.00:40
Flannelkazol_: which settings?00:40
aeleonamenado: uhh? it's between an xp client here in the UK and an ubuntu server which is one of four behind a router. the other three are my family's pcs.00:40
kazol_Flannel: Just user settings.00:41
Flannelkazol_: Things you've changed (like prferences?)00:41
aeleonoops, by xp i meant vista. sigh.00:41
kazol_Flannel: Yes, aren't they stored in ~?00:41
Flannelkazol_: Those aren't under package management.  --purge will remove global settings (in /etc), stuff in ~ is a simple as removing the files/directories/whatever00:41
amenadoaeleon-> you can get from your vista to the ubuntu server okay right? so what else you need connected to?00:41

PlightI need help enabling midi play back, none of the programs in the repos actually did anything, and there isn't a codec or anything, can someone help me?00:42
amenadoaeleon-> open some ports on which device?00:42
vltorphe: Didn't work. $DISPLAY is now "localhost:10.0" but the output of `xeyes` doesn't appear on my screen.00:42
Flannelkazol_: No, just everything associated with the global configs fo the app.  It'd be bad if, for instance, your mail stored in your homedir was removed because you removed mail client X, and installed mail client Y00:42
kazol_Kuni: Right click on the top panel and click on "Add to Panel"00:42
beegzQuick question - can you ssh into unbuntu desktop or server version only?00:42
Flannelbeegz: Yes.00:43
amenadobeegz-> as long as it is running sshd00:43
cfeddebeegz: just have to install the sshd00:43
aeleonWell, when I VPN, I use my server's internet. And when I whatismyip.com, I show up as my server's ip, amenado.00:43
orphevlt: is X installed on the server00:43
kazol_Kuni: Select "Application Launcher", find "Accessories", and insert "Character Map."00:43
Flannelbeegz: The dfference between "server" and "desktop" is just the default packages intsalled.  Once installed, there's no difference of capabilities (because you can add/remove whatever)00:43
kazol_Kuni: Whenever you have to type an accent or special character, you could just click on the icon on the top panel.00:43
beegzthanks - will check in synaptec....00:43
aeleonamenado: So I'd in my browser, and it got me into my router's settings at home, so I figured I could open ports. but, like I said, when I use, say, utorrent's port checker, it says they'r closed.00:43
vltorphe: I think so. Though I doubt that it needs it ...00:43
edward_no luck00:44
amenadoaeleon-> from your vista, you are logged in to your ubuntu server, so now you wanted to do what?00:44
Kunikazol_: thanks00:44

arkoI am trying to install ubuntu 7.10 in a hp dv2000 notebook. I got LiveCD running only on low graphic mode. When I double-click on "install", the install window is bigger than the screen so I can't click on "continue" to keep installation going on. Is there a solution for that?00:45
aeleonamenado: I'm sitting on my client with access to my server and i want to forward ports.00:45
amenadoaeleon-> you are already talking to your ubuntu server, what additional ports do you want?00:45
amenadoaeleon->  forward ports from your server into where?00:45
aeleonamenado: I want to be able to stream music.00:46
aeleonamenado: and I don't want to use the port my server's listening on.00:46
Indiadev_Techiearko: try the alternate cd version...00:46

aeleonamenado: what? i want it streamable online.00:46
kaidenQuick question for you folks, i just switched to amd 64 bit version of ubuntu, and i have problems installing. When i click any of the start or install ubuntu or the in safe graphics mode and all i get after it loads the kernel is a black screen00:47
kaidena friend told me it was because i'm using dvi/hdmi and not a regular vga cable00:47
amenadoaeleon-> now you wanted to have a separate port on your ubuntu server to be served to the internet for people like me?00:47
kaidenis there any merit to that at all?00:47
aeleonamenado: ehh, yes and no. i want to run a shoutcast from my client while VPN'd to my server.00:48
Flannelkaiden: No.  It's probably due to graphic card drivers though.  The liveCD sometimes has issues with them.  Grab the alternate CD, install that way, and your graphics should work fine once installed.00:48
kaidenok thank you flannel00:48
amenadoaeleon-> you can do that, serve on a different port and make sure your router facing the internet forwards this to your server00:48
Corwinhi i need some help00:48

vltorphe: Correction: Just checked the second server: It actually _got_ X installed.00:48
aeleonamenado: well, like i said, when i told my router to forward the port and then checked from my client to see it was open, it said it was closed.00:49
vltvydd: Works here.00:49
amenadoaeleon-> why not just run your shoutcast off of your server rather than having a source in uk, transitting the atlantic i assume00:49
EADGWhat is the command to stop sshd  sudo /usr/sbin/sshd stop  gives an error: extra argument stop.00:49

Corwinit starts to but then just hangs00:49

aeleonamenado: no, to be honest. there's too much of it.00:50
Corwini heard that it might be a problem with my amd processor but i'm not sure00:50
kaidenFlannel, thank you, i will try that00:50
orphevlt: sorry not to have respond earlier ... indeed x needs to be installed due to the special x architecture00:51
amenadoaeleon-> btw when you say you check from your client, are you referring to your client in uk or you are referring to your ubuntu server acting as client to access the routers web page?00:51
EADGvlt: Tanks, /usr/bin/ssh was hanging.00:51

Indiadev_TechieCorwin: does ur system supports 64 bit architecture....00:52

Kunialso, if you're comparing soley on the basis of which one is better at saving the exact same file, I'd say that "cp <file> <newfile>" works best and fastest. ;)01:17
Jangarinot for linux, as far as i know, but what is cooledit?01:17
pinguanyone know how to change the icon of a folder01:17
Dr_willispingu,  right click on it, properties, click on the icon,01:17
Jangarigood point, kuni, djzn, what sort of things are you doing in audacity?01:17
Dr_willispingu,  i think. :)01:17
djznAdobe Audition is what cooledit used to be01:17
vltJangari: Have you checked ardour yet?01:17
Jangarino, vlt01:17
pinguDr_willis: i tried that it just puts a little mark by it01:18
djznKuni: you're not getting, this is a lossless proof test... I will have to edit the audio (fade it out)01:18
Dr_willispingu,  may not be doable in gnome then. I know i can do it in kde.  I dont rember doing it in gnome lately.01:18
coop2hey guys, I had a question about recompiling a distant server with 64-bit support01:18

icanhasadminanyone familiar with really complex sound issues with ati sb450 chipsets?01:18
kharnov_Hey everyone, I've got a question concerning Wine. Would I be able to ask it here? #winehq is kind of dead.01:19
Kunidjzn: yeah, I know now, I was being a smartass with that last remark.01:19
Kunidjzn: you should check out ardour01:19
djtoastanyone know how to mount tape drive?01:19
pinguDr_willis: nope i figured it out. you just open properties and click on the icon itself01:19
Dr_willispingu,  hmm.. that was what i said. :) i thought.01:20
Jangaridjzn: i would suggest using an audio editor that operated on pcm, rather than the cached audio signal that audacity uses,01:20
kostkonpingu, it's easy, right click, properties, on the first tab (called "basic") click on the current icon of the folder to select a new one01:20
gardenhoseis there any way to automaticaly fill in dependencies when you're compiling from source?01:20
djznJangari: I think you KILLED the sheep01:20
djznJangari: are you audio engineer?01:20
icanhasadminHDA ATI SB450... anyone? i think it might be a DSDT problem but after decompiling mine i see no issues...01:20
Kuniin case you missed it earlier (since I didn't name it, sorry), djzn, here: http://ardour.org/01:21
djznJangari: I am doing a comparison in TOtalcommaner... a binary one... the file is 98% different from the original WAV01:21
Dr_willisgardenhose,  if rebuilding a deb from source. its possibel.. but with just any old tar.gz source ou downloaded - not as easy01:21
ubotuYou can easily fetch a package's source with apt-get. See: http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/apt-howto/ch-sourcehandling.en.html01:21
coop2would anyone be able to help me?01:21
Jangarinotice every time you open a file in audacity, it takes a few minutes per GB top open the file? it's interpreting the pcm data into a kind of 'digital approximation' of the audio signal01:21
djznJangari: whereas it's identical towards the Cooledit one01:21
Jangariit should be identical01:22
djznoh m god...01:22
Jangariit's digital01:22
djznoh my god ARDOUR looks like Apple Logic01:22
icanhasadminSo I'm having serious lack of sound issues.. ubuntu 7.10... HDA ATI SB450... new alsa drivers...01:22
Kunidjzn: is that good or bad?01:22
coop2i'm willing to paypal $5 for someone who could help me actually pull this off.... i'm running a 32bit version of 6.06.1 LTS (server) but i need to upgrade to a 64-bit version without physically going there01:22
pingukostkon: yea i got it from the help menu01:23
djznthat's supposed to be good... Recoil's subHuman was made out of Apple Logic01:23
pinguanyone know much about encryption of files/folders01:23
neolith2099coop2, do mean running 64bit ona 32-bit CPU?01:23
pingulike if i just want to encrypt a file on my comp01:23
* icanhasadmin is invisible maybe01:23
Kunidjzn: well, it's in the repos if you want it. sudo apt-get install ardour01:23
dran_can I force aptitude to ignore dependencies and install an app anyways01:23
Jangarihow does cooledit rate?01:24
coop2neolith2099: it's a server with Xeon processors that support EM64T01:24
djznKuni: the fact I went to Audacity is that I wanted it on Windows01:24
Jangarioh, there is no cooledit01:24
kostkonpingu, yeah, indeed. I missed your post above at first.01:24
Flannelcoop2: 32 to 64 bit requires a reinstall. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation has some methods, see especially the bit about server/network installs.  Hopefully one will work for you01:24
djznKuni: Ardour and Sweep are not from Win...01:24
orphevlt: sorry i have no idea ... there must be something with the server since it works with the same client on another server01:24
Kunidjzn: ah...well, sorry then. I supposed you wanted it for (#)ubuntu...01:24
neolith2099coop2, it will require a reinstall then01:24
coop2Flannel: does it require a complete reinstall? or is there a way for me to fudge it with a recompile?01:24
djznyou guys know another audio program like audacity that runs on Linux and Win?01:24
Jangaridjzn: if the output file is wav wrapped pcm, it doesn't matter about cross-platform-ness01:24
pingukostkon: ok cool. you know anything about encryption i am trying to encrypt a file on my comp but i can't seem to figure it out01:25
Jangariwhy would you need a single audio editor that runs on all three platforms?01:25
vltorphe: Yes, I really tried to find the difference. Got no idea yet.01:25
Kunidjzn: I do know of one that runs on linux and windows thats just like audacity. Unfortunately, it happens to be audacity.01:26
kostkonpingu, I don't have any first hand experience on file encryption so I cannot recommend you something specific01:26
djznKuni: well there are preferences on the type of WAV in audacity01:26
pingukostkon: thanks01:26
djznKuni: I am gonna see if it's outputting the same WAV as cool01:26
sideawayscan someone help me?01:27
Kunidjzn: this is true. I thought about mentioning it earlier.01:27
Jangariuse ardour on linux, and whatever you have, cooledit, say, or audacity, on win01:27
pinguanyone know anything about file encryption i am trying to encrypt a file on my comp and i have an option when i right click but i dont know what to do when the next window pops up01:27
Jangariwavelab is another good one, damn powerful, but very expensive01:27
Kunisideways: maybe. what's your problem?01:27
Flannelcoop2: It does require a complete reinstall.  You could manually reinstall, see the "From Knoppix" bit at the very end, that may help01:27

mEck0Hi! I'm interested in the Ubuntu certifications (desktop and professional), mostly of the webcourses. I wonder what it costs to take them (I know the distance course for desktop training isn't released yet)?01:39
mneptokpingu: did you create a GPG keypair for yourself?01:39
kaidenFlannel, if you are still around, i got the alternate cd, and did the text based installation and i'm still greeted with a black screen the instant i try to load into the os01:40
Kunicaptmorgan: the only question I'd have about that is how you've got the sd card hooked up. Will your bios be able to boot to it? Also, I really have no idea if it would work.01:40
mneptokmEck0: Savior Faire Linux has a bunch of training materials online for free01:40
vltpingu: type `gpg --version`     (The "`" signs mark a shell command, you must not type them.)01:40
captmorganKuni, I was thinking through the card reader, but I don't know if there is an option to boot the SD card haha01:40
pingumneptok: no what is a GPG keypair, im totally new at encryption. ie. not exactly sure if its what i need or not. basically all i want to do is lock files on my computer so if someone gets on they can't view them without a password01:41
kaidenFlannel, if you are still around, i got the alternate cd, and did the text based installation and i'm still greeted with a black screen the instant i try to load into the os01:41

pingumneptok: i have already done that, i got that off of the forums i just need some help with the first one01:42
mneptokpingu: use that app to look at the keys on your system. do you have a GPG key set up for yourself?01:42
darkhow change a root password please ?01:43
prince_jammys!root | dark01:43
ubotudark: Do 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/RootSudo01:43

vltpingu: "tar" is an archive tool. It's used to store several files and folders in one "tar file". You can save tar's output to a file or "pipe" the output to the next tool, gpg in this case. At the end of this chain (that could be even longer) you redirect the output of gpg to a file. That's the ">" for.01:55

captmorganHey guys, I remeber seeing a friend of mine go through and reset my Xorg file, it looked like Bios screen and asked questions which in result updated the xorg01:58
captmorganhow can I get back to that?01:59
Dr_williscaptmorgan,  i think you are getting the 'console' confused with the 'bios screen'01:59

captmorganDr_willis Bios screen was just for a lack of a better word01:59
Dr_williscaptmorgan,  alt-ctrl F1 through F6 for the consoles. F7 to get back to X.01:59
Dr_williscaptmorgan,  the word is 'console' :)01:59
mEck0mneptok, have another question, on the site you linked to above, it says that Ubuntu Pro Course 1 (online version) costs 250 $US. Does this include the exam or just the course? And do you know how many exams is included if so? (I mean if you fail the first time or so)?01:59

chris062689Is Kubuntu a lot bigger than Ubuntu once installed?02:01
vltpingu: You can create a (still unencrypted) tar file by telling tar the output file with option "-f outputfile". Or you can pass (or as we say "pipe") it directly to the next tool using "|".02:01
plen0x_auraithx: I gave you the answer on how to get this "person" out. Google will tell you how to remove the kit.02:01

speeddemon8803windows key + e..nothing happens craigbass?03:14
_Oz_craigbass1976: not familiar with gdmflexiserver03:14
arrrghhhkaiden, you have to do ctrl-alt-f1.  but the "official" ubuntu way is thru restricted drivers manager.  have you tried that?03:14
craigbass1976speeddemon8803, right03:14
AuraithXnow a gksu apt-get autoremove03:14
speeddemon8803ok, just making sure we were on the same page :)03:14
pikachu_is there any reference to MagicSysRq ?03:14
geniiAuraithX: sudo apt-get install somepackage <- correct for instance            apt-get install somepackage      <-- incorrect, needs sudo in front03:14
grandpasweetsinse, uh i don't have freenx but nx client for linux....is there a difference?03:14
adrian_test about somthing03:14
kaidenarrrghhh, ctrl alt f1 doesn't do anything at all03:14
_Oz_craigbass1976: do you have an nvidia or ATI card?03:15
adrian_omg lol03:15
adrian_its talking about metal gear sold again03:15
warriorforgodadrian_: What?03:15
wease|super E is pretty sexy...sad you dont have it03:15
sweetsinsegrandpa do a search for nx03:15
AuraithXyein this case i needed gksu sudo03:15
craigbass1976_Oz_, It's a command I run by having an icon pointing to it on the Desktop.  Quicker than System -> Quit ->switch user03:15
glamhi, I just upgrade grub to grub2 on Gutsy, however, when I boot, I only get a grub rescue prompt, any help?03:15
AuraithXfor some reason03:15
AuraithXdidnt work with just sudo03:15
grandpaswwetsinse, i have nxserver , nxclient, nxnode03:15
geniiAuraithX: Please don't improvise commands mixing GUI sudo commands with command-line applications for instance.03:15
craigbass1976_Oz_, whatever is on board this Dell 240003:15
arrrghhhkaiden, did you listen to a word i said?03:15
sweetsinsegrandpa remove them all03:15
arrrghhhor read for that matter...03:15
AuraithXI can't even rememember what I'm doing - will this fix the firewall crashing?03:15
sweetsinsegrandpa you need the commercial client but you need a certain version as per the guys instructions03:16
grandpasweetsinse: really...03:16
kaidenarrrghhh, yes, read quite well, problem is.... you didn't listen to what i said :)03:16
craigbass1976wease|, my wife would probably get angry if the computer started being sexy all of a sudden03:16
arrrghhhkaiden, did you try it with the restricted drivers manager?03:16
AuraithXcan anyone remember what I was doing? :S03:16
_Oz_craigbass1976: probably a built-in intel video card...  should work pretty well with compiz03:16
kaiden#1, ctrl-alt-f1 doesn't drop out of xorg to a console, #2, the restricted drivers manager, has the one that is installed from apt-get03:16
kaidenthe apt-get version is old03:16
sweetsinsealthough i have done it successfully with ltest commercial client03:16
evilbugi already installed everything using a tutorial,it's just that when i try to connect it'll ask me for the network key a couple of times and then doesn't connect at all.03:16
sweetsinsesome issues with shadowing03:17
wease|craigbass1976, gotta love a lil graphical sexiness...compiz, beryl, and small things like super E make it pretty sexy...03:17
_Oz_craigbass1976: if you're going to keep playing with linux/ubuntu I recommend migrating away from manufacturers like dell who put proprietary hardware built-in to the mobo03:17
wease|build the comp from the ground up03:17
evilbugit actually showed the signal bars for a little while (which i assume meant it connected) but the internet still would not work.03:17
wease|thats the best way03:17
craigbass1976_Oz_, This is what I had.  I recen'ty bought a new dell with ubuntu on it, but the desktop effects don't work at all on that.03:17
wease|one more month to go for hardy03:18
wease|im stoked03:18
sweetsinsein reality, with the monitor, keyboard, mouse, EVERY little thing including heatsink... a comp has about 14 parts03:18
craigbass1976I do like this dell I'm on now though--been with me since fedora103:18
arrrghhhkaiden, the restricted drivers manager is the way to go.  it works great (in 7.10... it was *ok* in 7.04.)  and ctrl-alt-f1 kicks me back to a console in a HURRY.03:18
_Oz_craigbass1976: dell desktops actually seem to work okay with ubuntu but in general you want the ability to put exactly the hardware you want into the machine, and you'll have more fun with alternate OS'03:18
orionrHey im trying to setup a smb share on my computer. for some reason this isnt working though.03:18
Viktorioushow do u remove a program03:18
arrrghhhi use kubuntu tho.03:18
craigbass1976orionr, what exactly is screwed up?03:18
PsynoKhi0my USB works great in Puppy linux but Xubuntu won't cooperate, what do I need to tweak?03:19
_Oz_craigbass1976: did super-E work for you?03:19
arrrghhhViktorious, there's tons of ways.  how do you install programs?  apt-get?  add/remove programs?  synaptic?03:19
craigbass1976_Oz_, nope.  What's it supposed to do?03:19
arrrghhhViktorious, apt-get remove.03:19
_Oz_craigbass1976: it's an 'enhancement' over alt-tab which I like a lot03:19
orionrcraigbass1976: i added this to the bottom of my smb.conf file. DOes this look right? http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/56919/03:19
_Oz_it gives you a 3D view of your desktop windows, standing on a pane of reflective glass03:19
wease|its pretty dayum sexy03:20
_Oz_it's like alt-tab but you can easily see what each screen has on it03:20
AuraithXfirestarter is still crashing I think its the gksu thats crashing - can you run firestarter any other way03:20
_Oz_it's sexy but more importantly, useful03:20
kaidenarrrghhh, then i must be stupid, because in the restricted drivers manager i hit ctrl-alt-f1 and nothing happens03:20
wease|oz, agreed03:20
_Oz_there are a number of really useful compiz-fusion enhancements03:20
craigbass1976_Oz_, and it's not like ctrl+alt+up or down?03:20
orionrcraigbass1976: then i ran smbpasswd -a orionr and set a smb password03:20
_Oz_craigbass1976: no, it's not03:20
wease|not the same thing03:20
arrrghhhkaiden, not in the restricted drivers manager, anywhere.  the restricted drivers manager is where i installed the drivers for all my nvidia cards.03:20
CarbonfluxI use the window rules stuff a lot in CCSM03:21
_Oz_I really enjoy my ubuntu desktop blowing away my XP desktop03:21
nickrudcraigbass1976: you can move windows from desktop to desktop. Pretty03:21
Carbonfluxas much as I do the eye candy stuff03:21
_Oz_people that have seen it are like, "Wait, what is THAT?  That's AWESOME!"03:21
arrrghhhkaiden, and i think maybe kubuntu sets that keystroke for you.03:21
wease|oz, my box makes xp look like its running on a 486 box03:21
_Oz_And I say, "That's the power of Linux, my feeble friend."03:21
craigbass1976orionr, is this behind a firewall?03:21
_Oz_wease|: yeah, same here03:21
_Oz_It's quite powerful03:21
arrrghhhcan someone in here confirm that?  ctrl-alt-f1 kicks me out to a console.  i use kubuntu.  what is it in ubuntu?03:21
AuraithXuhrm I think someone has changed my su03:21
_Oz_I just wish I could run Photoshop and Illustrator natively in Ubuntu03:21
AuraithXits saying Auth fail with the right pass??03:22
_Oz_If Adobe would release Linux versions of those I'd be totally set03:22
orionrcraigbass1976: no do i need to apt-get install samba?03:22
CarbonfluxPhotoshop runs good in wine03:22
wease|oz,  google is workin to make that happen03:22
_Oz_wease|: explain03:22
MrKnightsIs there a program that can limit the memory of a single process?03:22
arrrghhhCarbonflux, which version of pshop03:22
_Oz_MrKnights: if you find it, let me know03:22
askvictorwhere can I check the temperature of the motherboard etc?03:22
wease|oz, you didnt read that google is working on supporting the photoshop for linux?03:23
_Oz_Carbonflux: it doesn't run well in wine...  I run CS2 in Wine and it is OK but a far cry from native in XP03:23
Carbonfluxhm, well I got 5.5 working a while back03:23
wease|let me find a link03:23
Carbonfluxin Fedora03:23
_Oz_wease|: NO, I didn't!  That is exciting, can you give me a link?03:23
arrrghhhaskvictor, your hardware has to support it, or you have to put temp sensors.03:23
CarbonfluxI have not tried 5.5 in wine with Ubuntu yet03:23
AuraithXsu and root pass are the same thing, right??03:23
Carbonfluxreally I got used to gimp03:23
_Oz_askvictor: do a search for "ubuntu screenlets" and install the "sensors" screenlet03:23
wease|im a slashdot whore03:23
Daisuke_Idogoogle is pouring money into Wine to improve photoshop compatibility.  a small but subtle difference03:23
arrrghhhCarbonflux, that's really old lol.03:23
Carbonfluxand don't need photoshop for anything03:23
_Oz_you can get sensor for GPU processor temp, etc03:23
wease|oz, http://linux.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/02/20/1837204&from=rss03:23
_Oz_jeez, just another reason to love google03:24
Carbonfluxarrrghhh, ya i have basicly stopped using it, I keep it around because its a legal copy and I use it in windows sometimes for basic stuff03:24
NativeAngelsanyone know how you set global and local users in irc ?03:24
Carbonfluxarrrghhh, gimp will do everything I need, I admit my needs are minor heh03:24
askvictor_Oz_: do they provide logging?03:24
wease|gimp just needs to improve on their tool windows03:25
wease|adobe has the one thing up on them03:25
Carbonfluxwell, its not like gimp is Open Source or something ;)03:25
glamanyone using grub2?03:25
poolosconnect irc.EpiKnet.org03:25
craigbass1976orionr, hang on a minute03:25
wease|gimp is pretty schweet03:25
Carbonfluxif gimp was open source someone might be able to fix that problem.03:25
nano__whats a MSWindows equivalent of GIMP?  I haven't used windows in a while03:25
nano__*what is03:25
Carbonfluxthere is none03:25
Carbonfluxunless you buy one03:25
Daisuke_Ido"As part of the Google/Photoshop initiative, Photoshop will now log all changes you make to images and make them searchable from within the program.  They will also be able to be labeled with tags, so all blur changes can be tagged with 'blur' and whatnot."03:25
wease|gimp is windows compatible03:26
nano__CarbonFlux: what can a perons buy?03:26
kaidenarrrghhh, ok i think the confusion was in what i was describing as what i wanted to do, i need to actually install the driver from the website, but i cannot do so until i exit out of Xorg into a regular console to run the installer03:26
Daisuke_IdoCarbonflux: how about the gimp?03:26
CarbonfluxPhotoshop nano_03:26
nano__what about mspaint?03:26
Carbonfluxgimp runs in windows ?03:26
nano__or microsoft paint03:26
Z_o-s-ogimp for windows03:26
CarbonfluxI did not know that03:26
CarbonfluxI want it03:26
wease|gimp has run windows for yeasrs03:26
sweetsinsegrandpa: hows it going03:26

maxownzanyone in here use tor?03:26
glamwhat is tor?03:26
Daisuke_Idooh come on, that was funny -_-03:26
grandpasweetsinse, ADD kicked in...still trying to understand the tutorial..03:26
CarbonfluxI always get gimp thru my distro's package manager03:26
CarbonfluxI did not realise there was a windows version03:27
wease|its pretty schweet03:27
edward_i'm downloading a 2.9 gb iso but it keep failing md5 how can i resume it and get it hashed for completeness03:27
maxownzglam: www.torproject.org03:27
nano__Google is paying $$ to the WIne guys to port Adobe Photoshop03:27
_Oz_askvictor: not sure, but probably not.03:27
maxownznano_: yes I saw that, pretty interesting03:27
edward_i tried wget -c already03:27
geniiglam: tor is an anonymizer service. Basically a proxy server.03:27
sweetsinseyou dont have to do every step... mainly just get the packages from his repo.. then make sure you do that font thing or else freenx will crash03:27
Tama00edward_, dump it in a torrent ;)03:27
craigbass1976orionr, ok, where are you at03:27
Tama00edward_, if there is a torrent for that file03:27
Z_o-s-odoes tor really work as advertised?03:27
leprasmurfhello all, I've got videos on my ubuntu server, and I'm trying to watch 'em on my ubuntu laptop over wireless.  These files are about 150megs a piece, but it's very choppy.  any recommendations on how I can improve the performance? (I'm currently watching over nfs)03:27
Daisuke_Idonano__: wrong again.  there is no "porting", google is just putting money into wine to improve compatibility03:28
_bryceI want to install Ubuntu on a thinkpad X61. It has no optical drive. What's the easiest way to install ubuntu on it? I googled, but all I found was some thing that involved using windows (!) to make the bootable thumb drive.03:28
sweetsinsegrandpa what i did was remove all the fonts under node.conf except one03:28
Tama00use the file as the source and it will scan the file and then dowonload the missing bits:)03:28
nano__maxownz: Google is CIA money funded and therefore a pile of crap03:28
arrrghhhkaiden, i know.  on mine, kubuntu, ctrl-alt-f1 gets me to a console where i can kill gdm.03:28
Tama00ahh bittorrent:)03:28
_Oz_well, Photoshop "sort of" ports to Wine right now but it is far from perfect03:28
_Oz_It's a lot slower to load, a lot slower to use and has transparency problems.03:28
maxownzZ_o-s-o: yep, I get a talk from their developers every semester03:28
maxownznano_: is CIA money different from like money you use at 7-11?03:28
craigbass1976orionr, I've never tried to secure samba shares.  I've kept the netowrk secure from the outside world, then lef the sambe share wide open03:28
edward_Tama00, there is no torrent03:28
TrustNoOneHope someone can help: its with my sound. Sometimes I can't hear video sounds like on youtube and porn sites, other times I can, and most of the time I don't hear my login/logout sounds03:28
Z_o-s-omaxownz: sweet ill have to try it03:28
_Oz_If you use Photoshop professionally, Wine is just sort of a neat novelty at the moment.  It's cool that it runs at all, don't get me wrong, but it's not seriously a viable option for professional use yet.03:28
orionrcraigbass1976: i think i got it tanks for your help i just needed to install the samba package. I though i had it because i had the /etc/samba/smb.conf file.03:29
_Oz_nano__: actually, the FBI, not the CIA, funds google.03:29
craigbass1976orionr, weird.... I'd have thought the same thing03:29
nano__maxownz: seriously, cia (much like many other intelligence agency) are trying to get good ground on the internet...... that is why google has had such $$ pouring in.03:29
nano__they are neighbours with NASA03:29
craigbass1976orionr, I guess I never checked before I installed smaba server for smb.conf03:29
_Oz_TrustNoOne: I totally dig that you used the example of "porn site" for problem with your sound drivers.  Two thumbs up!03:29
nano___Oz_: fbi, cia....its all big brother03:30
PsynoKhi0at least he/she is honest03:30
jrib!offtopic | nano__, maxownz03:30
ubotunano__, maxownz: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, #ubuntu+1 supports the development version of Ubuntu and #ubuntu-offtopic is for random chatter. Welcome!03:30
Oloughlin75whats not to love about big brother, nano_ ?03:30
_Oz_craigbass1976: GIMP is a long, long way away from what Photoshop can do.  Sorry, I like Gimp, and I love open source software, but Adobe has everyone beat by a mile (as well they should, they've been developing this application for 15 years!)03:30
craigbass1976I know, just tooting a horn...03:30
_Oz_craigbass1976: =)03:30
ArkoI am trying to follow this howto: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx/Gutsy . It asks to "1) Open System -> Administration -> Restricted Driver Manager and you will see that under the Firmware drop down arrow it says Firmware for Broadcom 43xx chipset family and under Status it says Not in Use." There is no "Firmware" here. How can I enable it?03:30

orkunhey there - is it possible that ubuntu(or better say linux in general) lacks hdtv capabilities? when i try to watch my lost .mkvs every now and then video freezes for maybe 5 seconds and my laptop gets VERY hot - it is a pentium dual core inside(the newest, but the weaker version, although not the celeron version :>) with 2x 1.83GHz. vga is a intel(one of the better models) which makes compiz run flawlessly but lacks hardware t&l for games03:40
orkun like world of warcraft(but this shouldnt effect playback of mkv-files)03:40

speeddemon8803_oz_ looks like pclinux according to distrowatch03:45

prince_jammysedward_: wget -c is only going to continue downloads begun by wget03:45
_Oz_pclinux? What's its claim to fame, speeddemon8803?03:45
Oloughlin75_Oz_, PCLinuxOS is popular, too (meant to be super duper user friendly)03:45

wease|speeddemon8803: ive been runnin gutsy since alpha...im ready for a new OS03:45

speeddemon8803_Oz_:  yep03:46
Z_o-s-oI tried PCLinuxOS but I dont really like KDE and it was pretty clunky03:46
Oloughlin75_Oz_, id say so, but try out kubuntu :)03:46

Z_o-s-oOloughlin75 I dont like KDE is all, I think Gnome is better03:47
IndyGunFreakspeeddemon8803: yeah, i wasn't disagreeing with you, but if you looka t Distrowatch, PCLOS is always near the top(but i think that just ranks downloads... so its obviously people trying it, but i think people tend to stick w/ ubuntu)03:47
Oloughlin75_Oz_, its got KDE programs instead of gnome03:47
Oloughlin75alright, they got the same base03:47
_Oz_Yeah, I'd have to say I'm a little happier with gnome03:47
wease|KDE is just a manager03:47

_Oz_fredmv: which SDL problem?03:48
speeddemon8803BUT k3b..rocks03:48
jribKalamansi: no, 'sudo -i' only gives you a root shell.  It does not affect the gui.  You would have to use a terminal command like 'mv'.  Alternatively, you should "exit" your root shell and run "gksudo nautilus".  Then do your copying and immediately close that instance of nautilus03:48

speeddemon8803_oz_ for the most part yes03:52
_Oz_For the most part?03:53
ng0noz.  .deb will install on debian base.03:53
fredmv_oz_: I think they're all one and the same.    At least, any deb package I've used has worked fine on Ubuntu... so...03:53
_Oz_How do you know, before you install, if it will work, speeddemon880303:53
speeddemon8803might have some package dependancy problems in different os's..but should work :)03:53
speeddemon8803if its a deb based os and your installing a deb file, it should work in all debian based system.03:53
Oloughlin75yay, only 10 hours left until my audio is converted!03:53
xTheGoat121xNubbie, it depends on the license for it, and I'm sure that if your mom's company finds out, it could get her fired.03:53
nickrud_Oz_: no. Each distro is compiled as a piece, it's not generally a good idea to swap around. Not all os  package versions have the same dependencies03:53
_Oz_Is there a goal for all the debian-based distros to eventually reach a point where they're all cross-compatible with each other application-wise?03:53

ubotuUbuntu, like any other linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'iptables' command (see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo), or GUI applications such as Firestarter (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE).04:04
wease|sn00zer, did you try su -l ?04:04
speeddemon8803!sound | TrustNoOne04:04
ubotuTrustNoOne: If you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer).

_Oz_Linux is so superior...  just really wish the apps I need were all available in Ubuntu.04:07
speeddemon8803if it does..yay.04:07
_Oz_I'm able to do about 90% of what I need in Linux04:07
sdsheekssn00zer: ssh host -l user04:08
Oloughlin75_Oz_, what cant you do?04:08
_Oz_But for that 10%, I have to keep rebooting into XP which is time-consuming and annoying.04:08
sdsheeks_Oz_: as in?04:08
Kalamansiand also how to work yahoo messenger in ubuntu 7.10 desktop with voice and cam? hehehehe do you think ubuntu can handle this?04:08
speeddemon8803!virtualization > speeddemon880304:08
_Oz_Oloughlin75: photoshop, illustrator primarily.  Also AutoCAD.04:08
sweetsinse_Oz_ yeah as in i was going to say 2 haha04:08

tyler_d_Oz_: try qemu if you have enough horsepower04:08
ng0nyes.. i have WIN aps I have to run.  wish i didn't.  not many...04:08
sdsheeks_Oz_: ah..did you see google is sponsoring something with phoshop for linux?04:08
sweetsinsewhat is so superior about photoshop04:08
tyler_d_Oz_: or you could try an alternative.. ie. gimpshop04:08
Oloughlin75_Oz_, blender is supposed to be a good cad replacment, and we already had the gimp discussion (no experience here with blender, but autcad is awesome)04:09
tyler_d_Oz_: or if you do some hunting I believe there is a guy that got it all working with wine04:09
sn00zersdsheeks, wease| still denying me04:09
_Oz_tyler_d: nonw of the emulators really do what must be doen to make these apps useful in ubuntu.  it's just not happening.04:09
ng0noz. tnx agn.  bye04:09
nickrudgimpshop is based on an old gimp, gimp people say it doesn't have some serious bug fixes04:09
sdsheekssn00zer: what is the exact error msg?04:09
_Oz_sdsheeks: I did see that!  Awesome.04:09
wease|sn00zer, you need to go with single user mode....otherwise you wont get root access04:09
_Oz_ng0n: you bet.04:09
sdsheeks_Oz_: yup hopefully the get something rolling.04:09
Z_o-s-owoo 3days 18 hrs of uptime04:09
grandpasweetsinse, how can i quickly and securely set up vnc?04:09
sweetsinsegrandpa im not sure, i know vnc is used to tunnel thru freenx, and thus 256 bit ssh, but i dont know if you will still be exposed04:09
_Oz_tyler_d: I can't go to any alternate.  It has to be photoshop and illustrator.  "There can be no substitute"04:09
matthiashey everybody where can i funcional bcm43xxx zip file for 7.10 ?04:10
sn00zerwease|, i don't need root access, i'm trying to connect to a regular user04:10
_Oz_Now for M$ Office, I happily substitute it with OpenOffice04:10
Oloughlin75matthias, youll probably need to use ndiswrapper!04:10
tyler_d_Oz_: then search through the wine documentation and start tweeking04:10
nickrudZ_o-s-o: 8 days, 4:16 and that's pitiful ;)04:10
wease|sn00zer, FWIK ssh requires root04:10
sn00zersdsheeks, permission denied, like a wrong password but i know its correct04:10
sweetsinsegrandpa i think you would still be visible to regular vnc clients on the stndard port04:10
_Oz_But if you're a web/graphics professional you absolutely must have Photoshop and Illustrator.04:10

RedHeronspeeddemon8803: Not that I'm aware of... I could be wrong.04:11
Scunizi_Oz_, have you tried gimp with the mods.. gimpshop.. it rearranges the menu structure to mirror photoshop04:11

sweetsinsei have used photoshop once or twice, but have made a number of cool things with gimp04:11
RedHeronsweetsinse: I learned on Photoshop, I now use GIMPshop04:11
_Oz_If I was just playing around and not doing this for a living, gimp would probably be fine.04:11

_Oz_I will check gimpshop out!04:13
_Oz_Can you save .PSDs with it?04:13
Z_o-s-onickrud suspend / hibernate keeps the uptime frozen right instead of setting it to 0 again?04:13
grandpasweetsinse, yes, but vnc is easier...and i certainly want to try it...but, out of time :(04:13
RedHeron_Oz_: Yes.04:13
tyler_d _Oz_: yes04:13
speeddemon8803if that doesnt work ropiee, come back and we can try another route :)04:13
sn00zersdsheeks, i'm pretty sure its running, it prompts for a password to connect to remote host, then rejects the password04:13
nickrudZ_o-s-o: I'm not sure, I think it keeps ticking04:13
grandpasweetsinse, have to catch at least a few ZZZ's before the sun comes up :)04:13

sdsheekssn00zer: could be that no shell is set for that user?04:13
RedHeron_Oz_: I've had to set up kerning tables, but yes.04:13
nickrudZ_o-s-o: when I suspend tonight, I'll check. Interesting question04:14
sweetsinsegrandpa the speed of freenx is phenomenal04:14
_Oz_kerning tables? that sounds scary04:14
sweetsinseso worth the time04:14

_Oz_speeddemon8803: what about virtualbox rocks? I haven't tried it yet.04:14
matthiascan you ?04:14
sdsheekssn00zer: okay it might also be with the key04:14
grandpasweetsinse, what is vnc port number?04:14

ahorriblemesshey everyone, I was wondering if someone can help me connect (wifi network) to my XP computer... I've read through forums, I have samba, and I can ping the XP box... but I can't seem to figure out how to access the shared files from the Ubuntu machine to the XP machine.I want to download files from XP04:14
sdsheekssn00zer: change to your user home dir and then to .ssh04:14
Scunizigrandpa, 520004:14
RedHeron_Oz_: You can run Windows in a window on Virtualbox.04:14
matthiasmy ubunto 7.10 tells me the zip file is not an zip file ...04:15
_Oz_Scunizi: I could probably stand to switch from Illustrator since I don't use it as much, but I do need the ability to save .AIs and open them04:15
sn00zersdsheeks, ok i'm in .ssh04:15
_Oz_RedHeron: yeah, I knew that...  I was just wondering how well it worked04:15
Scunizi_Oz_, you can run windows in a window on gnome, kde, xfce.. sorry .ai's are tough.. nothing doing here for that.04:15
Z_o-s-odid i mention that K3B is the best linux program ever?04:15
RedHeron_Oz_: Illustrator is the only one I still switch machines at work to use.04:15
sdsheekssn00zer: do an ls and let me know if you see any rsa files in there04:15
JoshuaRLrael, boot into the recovery console in the windows install disk and type "fixmbr" and "fixboot"04:16
prohnahi all04:16
_Oz_redheron: if I have to switch for one I might as well switch for both. :(04:16
Scunizi_Oz_, could you export .ai's as postscript or something and import them?04:16
sn00zersdsheeks, only see known_hosts04:16
JoshuaRLrael, then use supergrub to reinstall grub04:16
grandpasweetsinse, for now is it okay to have vnc running and telling firestarter to only open the ports for my other ip?04:16
grandpasweetsinse, secure enough?04:16
sdsheekssn00zer: who is the owner?04:16
prohnais there a way to wipe my install to a fresh ubuntu without reinstalling the OS?04:16
RedHeron_Oz_: Virtualbox FTW.04:16
grandpasweetsinse, for now? :)04:16
ropieerdesktop -fullscreen <---cant work speed04:16

sdsheekszelrikriando: project 200704:17
ropieecan u help me pls04:17
_Oz_redheron: how would illustrator run in virtualbox?04:17
Scuniziprohna, if you have a seperate /home just reinstall and don't format /home when doing it.. all your stuff will still be there.04:17
grandpasweetsinse, how would i change that?04:17
prohnai messed my install up its gonna suck to reinstall04:17
_Oz_speeddemon8803, that Q goes for you as well...04:17

sweetsinseropiee are you using vnc04:18
Raelhow do I get into the recovery console? I did not see that option04:18

RedHeron_Oz_: It does.04:18
speeddemon8803ropiee, i did tell you how to do that, did you take notes?04:18
_Oz_I like the idea of containing Vista's evils into a little box04:18
ropieeto remote windows 2003 from my unbuntu04:18
sdsheekssn00zer: you can try04:18
zelrikriandosdsheeks: ok that looks quite specific04:18
sweetsinsenvr mind i know nothing about windoze04:18
sdsheekssn00zer: this is what i was looking at - http://help.unc.edu/?id=622004:18
RedHeron_Oz_: It's not recommended practice (using Vista), but it does work.04:18
matthiashello are you there ?04:18
Scuniziprohna, depends on what you've messed up .. but most things are "un-doable" without a reinstall.04:18
ropieei`m type : rdesktop -fullscreen04:18
JoshuaRLits one of the F-keys i believe rael.  been a while though.  just try to get into whatever options you can.04:18

matthiasso you are another lost ppl nickrud04:19
anderswcwhat flag do I use to start emacs in terminal mode rather than graphical mode?04:19

grandpasweetsinse, k thx..04:20
_Oz_I have all the hotkeys down pat in photoshop...  etc...  switching to gimp just seems impossible.04:20
RedHeron_Oz_: As I said... GIMP with sensible menus.04:20
Scunizi_Oz_, take a look at krita04:20
JoshuaRLmatthais do you have kzip?04:20
_Oz_RedHeron: re: bloat, agree.04:20
ropieehow use vnc???04:20
speeddemon8803!vnc | ropiee04:21

prohna_Oz_: i heard theres a plugin for gimp that makes it like photoshop04:21
_Oz_prohna: yes, it's called "gimpshop"04:21
RedHeron_Oz_: I use GIMPshop, and the keys aren't all *that* different, they just take a *little* getting used to.04:21
matthiaslet me see i do not know..., thank you ..04:21
vrkhansScunizi , i know i am creating a launcher on the panel , and it ask for the command to run04:21

sweetsinsegrandpa did ya catch that !04:21
RedHeron_Oz_: Yes, without so much as 1/100pt deviation.04:22
_Oz_nano__: try screenlets / sensors plugin04:22
matthiasjoshua the basic 7.10 does not seems to come with kzip ...04:22
AggortIs there an IRC I can go to for PC building tips04:22
grandpasweetsinse, uhuh!04:22
RedHeron_Oz_: All the basics are there, and writing new macros isn't hard to achieve new effects.04:22
_Oz_redheron: really? OK...  I will try it.  But as I said earlier, if I have boot outta Ubuntu for Illustrator anyway, there's not much point in bothering.  In the spirit of OSS, however, I'll try.04:22
nano___Oz_: yeah, but screenlets are only bits and pieces of what i want...i want a comprehensive monitor program04:22
RedHeron_Oz_: That's why you should get Virtualbox04:22
Scunizivrkhans, just right mouse click the menu item and tell it "add to panel".. from there you can look at the properties and see what the command is.04:23
iTF|PrometheusRael, if you dont have Recon installed - boot from your XP Disc, untouched disc, so no service pack 2 and select recovery console.. If you have it installed - press F8 at boot and choose recovery console (If not in boot.ini)04:23
_Oz_redheron: it just seems like it'd be way too slow.04:23
sdsheekssn00zer: work?04:23
sn00zersdsheeks, not yet04:23
matthiasJoshua will kzip  help me out with unzipping zip files04:23
RedHeron_Oz_: Virtualbox lets you run BOTH Windows and Ubuntu at the same time, and it's slower than normal, but not that bad, really.04:23
speeddemon8803Aggort, i think that would be an off-topic discussion, not sure...you can try asking that in #ubuntu-offtopic04:23
Scunizivrkhans, just looked myself.. gnome-terminal04:23
_Oz_Redheron: yes, I understand what virtualbox is/does.04:23
RedHeron_Oz_: It's about like running AI and Photoshop at the same time, honestly.04:23
JoshuaRLmattias, it should04:23
iceswordanyone is going to work on my starting 63sector of my disk,seems it is not right?04:23
_Oz_maybe this is a good excuse to upgrade my mobo/cpu...04:23
RedHeron_Oz_: I did, for less than $30004:24
grandpasweetsinse, thx...g2g04:24
_Oz_icesword: my 84 byte partition is right, on my disk you work on?04:24
_Oz_redheron: you upgraded mobo/cpu for less than $300g?04:24
RedHeron_Oz_: Yes.04:24
RedHeron_Oz_: And RAM, too... Mushkin.04:24
matthiasokey let me search the cd and see, the 7.10 is an pain so far ...04:24
_Oz_Here's a Q: I have an AGP nvidia card, a 7600...  I don't want to replace it right now ($$ reasons).  Is there a FAST, well-supported mobo/CPU I can get with AGP slots these days?04:25
RedHeron_Oz_: No.04:25
sweetsinsenp peace grandpa04:25
RedHeron_Oz_: Everything's going EIDE04:25
celi0us_Oz_ : AGP is dead.04:25
sn00zersdsheeks, i found it, it has a line "strictmodes" under authentication, on the one that works i have allowUsers with usernames04:25

genii_Oz_: I have one with pcie and agp on it04:26
matthiasJoshua tar, unzip and zip only in this distro 7.10 whatare you running ?04:26
_Oz_I think, if I'm going to upgrade my mobo, I will have to upgrade the vid card.  If I do all that, I might as well get a whole new machine.04:26
RedHeron_Oz_: My on-board video is nVidia 840004:26
tdawgedoggcan someone help me fix my display drivers for an nvida 7600 on gutsy04:26
RedHeronEr... 640004:26
sweetsinseif you upgrade the mobo you will obbsolete your processor likey04:26
* RedHeron gives up.04:26
JoshuaRLyeah 7.10 matthias.  i thought you wanted to unzip a zip.04:26
_Oz_tdawgedogg: that's my setup.  Did you use the restricted driver manager yet?04:26
_Oz_RedHeron: heheheh04:26
matthiasjoshua yes ..04:26
_Oz_RedHeron: thanks for the advice04:26
RedHeron_Oz_: np, glad I could help.04:27
tdawgedogg_OZ_: yes I did...nvidia drivers are in use04:27
RedHeron_Oz_: PM you?04:27
matthiasjoshua but the unzip complains that the zip file is not an zip file ...?04:27
sn00zersdsheeks, its still not working... i restarted the sshd server too04:27
sdsheekssn00zer: and it gives you an permission denied eh? what user are you trying to connect as?04:27
sn00zera user on the remote host04:27
sdsheekssn00zer: not root?04:28
JoshuaRLokay matthias, try 7zip04:28
slack_baphometwhat do i install to get sshd working04:28
matthiasJoshua : i do not get it , zip file from the ubuntu forum named .zip and not an zip file ...?????04:28
sn00zersdsheeks, no, i have no reason to connect as root, if i connect as normal user i can sudo after connected04:28
TheFoolI have a rather odd problem and was wondering if someone can look into it.04:28
TheFoolFor some reason I can connect to my server fine from inside the network, but from outside when I try to connect to port 80 I connect to port 81...I know this would normally be in the router somewhere. But I assure you I have port forwarding set up correctly and have not changed it in over a year...I just renewed my domain but I am not sure how that would affect anything. But it is the only thing that has changed recently04:28
sdsheekssn00zer: is this user one you recently created? can you login to the other machine as that user?04:28
TheFoolIt seems this is true of other ports as well, for instance I can ssh via port 2104:28
sdsheekssn00zer: from the actual machine i mean04:29
JoshuaRLnot sure matthias, maybe a KDE problem.  kzip is for that.  Try 7zip04:29
matthiasnot on the cd :(04:29
blink148can I not run 2 firewalls at once?04:29
matthiassorry ...04:30

JoshuaRLno worries matthias04:30
sn00zersdsheeks, my setup: desktop with username1 and laptop with username2, i had sshd running on desktop for awhile now and am able to connect to desktop from laptop as username on desktop04:30
matthiasjoshua i am looked to unzip, zip, uninstall 7.10 ???04:30
sdsheekssn00zer: but not from desktop to laptop?04:30
blink148eh, can I run bulldog and firestarter at the same time?04:31
sn00zersdsheeks, now i want to be able to connect to laptop from desktop but its giving me permission denied errors04:31
matthiasjoshua i am thinking downgrading to 6.06 instead ...04:31
PriceChildblink148, neither of those are firewalls04:31
PriceChildblink148, all they do are edit the rules of the real firewall, "iptables"04:31
biouserGutsy is great imo04:31
matthiasjoshua and hope for the best ...04:31
sdsheekssn00zer: okay understand.  My question was (trying to debug here) can you login to the laptop as the user you are trying to ssh as? IE from the laptop itself?04:31
JoshuaRLmatthias i guess i don't understand what the issue is with 7zip04:31
JoshuaRLand don't reinstall just yet matthias.  what exact type of modem do you have?04:32
sn00zersdsheeks, yes04:32
blink148i think he keeps overflowing firestarter so how can I get bulldog to start up?04:32
blink148as it keeps crashing04:32
sweetsinsematthias you are trying to extraxt a .7z?04:32

matthiasjoshua: bcm4328 version v104:33
kaidenIs there any way to easily get the latest nvidia drivers via apt-get (without using the outdated one's that are in 7.10)04:33
kaidenapt-get uses 100.04 which we are up to 169.0904:34

sdsheeksbobbob1016: only thing i have seen so far is flash04:42

bobbob1016sdsheeks, Codecs and things?  Is the 64bit kernel that different that apps would have a difficulty running?  I took a class where they went over processors, and they said the difference is the amount of registers that can be used in 64 and 32, but that shouldn't mess with apps, since they can just run with less registers, right?04:44

danbhfivejenni: how do you get it working?05:21
jennii changed the encorder thingy in sound recorder from mp3 to wav05:21
Tama00tkooda, its pretty easy man, just dump linux on the flash drive then install grub onto it and boot up on the flash drive if u pc suports it05:21
Z_o-s-o_i dont see why that would fix it05:22
jennineither do I05:22
Tama00tkooda, you could just boot the live cd and install ubuntu to the flash drive and it would work05:22
jennimaybe because it was working but the encoder is messed up, so it played on wav05:22

bazhangtkooda: use ext2 and disable swap then05:24
Z_o-s-o_what do you have listed in the switches tab?05:24

jenniyou mean Analog mix?05:25
Z_o-s-o_go bacl to the gui mixer05:25
Z_o-s-o_theres a tab labeled switches next to mixer05:25
tkoodabazhang/Tama00, I suppose that'd work.. -isn't there some "standard" method of obtaining "persistance" with flash drives though?  ("casper"?? "live-helper"??)05:25
jennithe only tabs i have is Playback, Recording, Options05:25

AnswerGuyI have someting that is driving me completely crazy (which, admittedly is usually only a short stroll) ...05:26
Tama00tkooda, you could do it in a similar way to a live cd and symlink it all into memory05:26
Z_o-s-o_usually theres a tab labeled playback and then nexto it theres one labeled switches05:26
AnswerGuyI want to remaster a Hardy Heron (alpha4) LiveCD using a custom wallpaper05:26

tkoodabazhang, p-d-l.org has info on how to mount a (usb) flash drive and copy a livecd+installer.. but I want just a "gutsy server"05:27
Z_o-s-o_i use alsa on all 3 of my ubuntu machines05:27
[chr0n0s]gold44, use whereis apache2 or whereis apache05:27
AnswerGuyBut it seems to totally ignore whatever I put in /usr/share/gnome-background-properties/ubuntu-wallpapers.xml05:28
bazhangAnswerGuy: this is wrong channel for Hardy05:28
tkoodaTama00/bazhang, would it work if I just booted off non-flash-drive, then `debootstrap`'d (and installed "server" packages?) it?05:28
Z_o-s-o_jenni : you might try posting in the forums05:28
gold44[chr0n0s]: ok i guess not. i think it's in /etc/apache05:28
jenniif I turn on the Aux05:29
jenniI can hear myself05:29
jennier sorry I mean the Analog mix05:29
kidemSucks to have ubuntu installed and cant use it or cant stand to use it cause the drivers for my gpu dont work well at all :(05:29
AnswerGuyOkay, where do I go for Hardy?05:29
tkoodaTama00/bazhang, and then tried to symlink /tmp, /var/tmp, /var/spool, etc.. ?  -but then I still gotta kill klogd and sysklogd, etc..05:29
Tama00tkooda, remembing the masterboot record yes05:29
tkoodaTama00/bazhang, thought there'd be a better way05:29
jenniOk so the mic works if I set it to mix05:29

Kalamansiamenado : all dhcp..05:45
amenadoahorriblemess-> you tried to ping one way, but what is the result? how about the other way?05:45
libcarteldo you guys recommend using a software firewall?05:45
Flughafendoes anyone know why ubuntu isnt recognizing my clix2?05:45
amenadoKalamansi-> do you have an ip address assigned on both pc's?05:45
mikebotDoes anyone know why ubuntu will suddenly not let me open folders?05:45
Kalamansiamenado : nope05:45
Kalamansiamenado - i use dhcp05:45
Tama00libcartel, only bother using a firewall if your a server and connected directly to the net05:45
amenadolibcartel all firewalls i knew of are software based05:46
mikebotIt says "Cannot display contents of this folder," or something like that...05:46
libcarteli thought routers had firewalls built in05:46
Kalamansiamenado - no need to install dhcp server in ubuntu desktop 7.10 right?05:46
amenadoKalamansi-> it does not matter dhcp or static, you must have an ip address on each machine05:46
danbhfiveamenado: a router with NAT is kinda like a hardware based firewall05:46
amenadoKalamansi no need to install a server if you are not serving05:46
Canzer69can anyone point me to the right direction of tryin to make my sli work?05:47
amenadodanbhfive-> what make its a NAT or makes it a router?  a software...end of story05:47
mikebotOr does anyone know where I can find out why this is the case?05:47
Kalamansiamenado yes. but still i dont have internet. i tried to assign ip still not working05:47
bazhangmikebot are your permissions messed up? have you been running as root?05:47
amenadoKalamansi-> thats just the initial steps, getting an ip address, next is the route table okay? do you  have a route to destination?05:48
mikebotbazhang: I am logged in as myself, so not sure if I am root, and I have been changing the permissions on some other folders, but I haven't lately and this happens all of a sudden..05:48
Kalamansiamenado : im not good in typos script...05:48
mikebotbazhang: Actually, I think it started when I tried to open an image with gthumb..05:48
Tama00amenado, yeah but its a separate peice of hardware not a separate peice of software05:48
bazhangmikebot changing the permissions? that would likely be it then05:49
Kalamansiamenado i use sudo ifconfig eth0 down and up still no internet connection05:49
Deep_Oceanwho can tell me why i insert my install cd,the computer tell me i should input the user and the password?05:49
mikebotbazhang: But I can't open /any/ folder, and I was only changing the permission on one folder.05:49
Kalamansiamenado ifoncifg eth0 down / ifconfig eth0 up05:49
mikebotbazhang: And once I chagne the permissions on that folder back to 777 I still can't open it..05:49
amenadoTama00-> your argument is what? what controls the hardware? software..end of story for you too.05:49
amenadoKalamansi-> do you have a working dhcp server?05:50
bazhangmikebot why change permissions at all? this sounds very serious indeed05:50
Tama00glad your not doing my home network amenado05:50
Kalamansiamenado : i dont know. i dont even install a dhcp server.05:50

Frijoliewhen you get an error from synaptic "the following packages have been kept back: [list of packages]" is that a bad thing?05:59

komputesTyler, I fant follow (tail-f lsusb)05:59

tyler_dmikebot: by default you cannot log in as root05:59

ubotumikebot: sudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information.05:59
Frijoliemikebot: Ubuntu doesn't have a root account, you are granted temporary root privliges05:59
tyler_dctrl-alt f2 to log into term... sudo -s to switch to root then /etc/init.d gdm stop05:59

mikebotbazhang: Oh, you said not as root.06:00
iscreamdoes anyone knoe how to open a virtual hard drive to see the contents in it??06:00
tyler_dkomputes: just type lsusb06:00
mikebotbazhang: Does this mean I have to delete the contents?06:00
tyler_dmikebot: rm -rf06:00
bazhangmikebot your system permissions sound seriously compromised--try rebooting as normal user delete the folder and see what happens--who knows what you have done so a reinstall may be in order06:00
komputesTyler, but that is not what i'm looking for, i need somethin live, always open that shows me what device i plug in06:00
ObsidianXhey folks, for some reason wine keeps on segfaulting when i try to run an exe06:00

Frijolieeg I have libqt4-core installed and I want to find out which application needs it and why it's installed on my computer06:03
komputesamenado, thanks06:03
firefly2442Frijolie: go into synaptic, right click on the package, goto properties06:04
ceffirefly2442: either mount the fs across the network and then treat it the same as if it's local, or export the filesystem using rsync and use rdiff (not 100% sure that's a good idea though)06:04
firefly2442cef: can I do it over SSH?06:05
tyler_derpo: why ipv6?06:05
tyler_derpo: not mainstream, although better.... or are you just testing?06:05
gold44where is cgi-bin 's default location?06:05
mikebotbazhang: OK, all folders seem to be opening properly...But I kinda need to keep the contents of the folder that I started messing with...can I remove the contents and then delete just the folder?06:05
bazhangmikebot check the permissions on it, and in the future do not change them if you dont know what you are doing06:06
Frijoliefirefly2442: that doesn't really give me a list of what applications are using it, is there a way to do that?06:06
mikebotbazhang: What's the command for checking permissions? Just "chmod <folder>"?06:06
Frijolieisn't libqt4-core the KDE libraries?06:07
mikebotbazhang: And I thought changing permissions was pretty self-explanatory..rwx06:07
erpotyler_d: Both machines have IPv6 and IPv4, but IPv4 has annoying NAT issues. I want to circumvent that by connecting directly via IPv6.06:07
roger_hcWhere can I configure the password security level requirements such as minimum length and character types for user passwords in Gutsy?06:07
danbhfiveFrijolie: thats qt, isnt it?06:07
amenadomikebot ls -la  shows you the file perms,06:07
firefly2442Frijolie: if you go into the dependencies, you can change to dependent packages, is this what you want?06:07
tyler_derpo: your better off resolving NAT issues as I am not showing alot in regard to ipv6 support06:08
mikebotbazhang: drwxrwxrwx06:08
tyler_derpo: and your router... does it support ipv6?06:08
Frijoliedanbhfive: that's what I thought. libqt4-core sounds a lot like it...06:08
erpotyler_d: Not an issue. Both machines are using the gateway6 client.06:08
mikebotbazhang: Should it not be that?06:08
kaushalhow can i know the apache version on ubuntu 7.0406:08
tyler_derpo: whats your nat issue?06:09
tyler_derpo: if I may inquire06:09
cefkaushal: you want to find out what apache versions are available in 7.04?06:09
roger_hckaushal: what do you get if you type "apache -v" into terminal?06:09
tacoboyedoes anyone know where I can find out info about laptop wireless06:10
erpotyler_d: NAT is being used, so I would have to set up port forwarding. Additionally, both computers have dynamic public IPs, so I would have to set up some kind of dynamic DNS garbage.06:10
Kalamansiamenado : still cannot connect net06:10
tacoboyeI'm having a terrible time with my 64 bit install laptop06:10

tyler_derpo: let me know what you think06:11
Kalamansiamenado : dhcp "wired:06:11
erpotyler_d: Closed source, no?06:11
Frijoliefirefly2442: but didn't know that option existed, thanks for pointing it out in synaptic06:11
amenadoKalamansi->  you are not answering me, does it have an ip address assigned to it?06:12
mikebotWhat are the permissions for a normal folder?06:12
Kalamansiamenado : no ip. i set it to dhcp. so no ip06:12
tyler_derpo: started open source... purchased.... free version available however yes(closed source)06:12
Frijoliewhat's the purpose of Applications --> Add/Remove over Synaptic, if Add/Remove can't really Remove all that many packages?06:12
amenadoKalamansi and you forgot to explain the network layout you have..06:12
erpotyler_d: Gross.06:13
Kalamansiamenado : modem - router linksys - switch - pc1 ubuntu and pc2 win06:13
tyler_dFrijolie: scaleability.... add/remove is simple, little to no control over versions etc.. synaptic allows further control06:13
mikebotbazhang: I think I'm going to chmod 644 the folder06:13
erpotyler_d: Wait. I thought it had been closed source from the beginning.06:13
amenadoKalamansi-> is your dhcp server working? is it dolling out ip addresses? which of those devices are acting as dhcp server?06:13
mikebotbazhang: Or should I refrain from further chmod'ing folders..06:13
bazhangmikebot heh your call ;]06:13
mikebotbazhang: Haha, OK06:14
EnTServerhi all06:14
EnTServeri'm back06:14
Frijolietyler_d: why not just grant Add/Remove Synaptic's power and have one to rule them all instead of an annoying little cousin who claims to be as great?06:14
tyler_derpo: alternatively, port forwarding=5mins, static ips = 10mins for 2 machines......... vs. tweaking out vnc for ipv6..... who knows06:14

Sonicadvance1I seem to be having troubles. I've compiled and installed a kernel (2.6.25-RC2) and it runs fine. But When I try compiling the Nvidia Driver's. It fails because it can't find Linux kernel headers. Anyone have experience in getting the headers installed correctly and/or the nvidia driver? :D07:16
Sonicadvance1I never had this problem before >.>07:17

tdawgedogg_ODOYLE RULES07:29
doyle::yawn:: what's up, all?07:29
AntiUSAZ-o-s-o: moving to another country doesn't change the relation of the USA to the world. The us has killed over a million Iraqis. If I move to Canada will they stop?07:30
tdawgedogg_zoso...thanks u helped me fix it07:30
doylei'm having a hell of a time with my wireless card.   basically, it works; works with WEP.07:30
TrustNoOneNeed help with wireless. I have a D-Link DWA-652. It has the ID of 168c:0023. I installed ndiswrapper and the driver and my card is recognized, but when I try to connect to a network it does not connection, my router is configured for WPA Personal and WPA2 Personal for AES and TKIP, and only my intel card is working (doesnt use ndis)07:30
|GaiJin|hey guys... I was hoping one of you might like to tell me what package I have to reinstall to get my icons and stuff to work, just installed ubuntu 7.10 and NEtwork Manager applet is getting a error, and I have almost no icons07:30
doylewhat in the hell does it take to make WPA fckin' work ? :-)07:30
biouserdoyle, I forget, but it does...07:30
doyleyea, trustnoone...   having similar problem.07:30
doylewpa_gui  and wpa_supplicant don't seem to work right.07:31
AntiUSAInsta: if something has an executable file does that mean it's already compiled?07:31
Z_o-s-o_AntiUSA : so you disagree with the US stand on terrorism....07:31
tdawgedogg_when ur downloading at 2kb a sec u get so excited when u see a jump at like 40kb/s for like 2 seconds07:31
Pieti managed to let my virtual hosts work. but i still got 2008] [warn] NameVirtualHost *:0 has no VirtualHosts07:31
doylei got it to finally CONNECT to the router, and an IP address is assigned, but i can't ping anything..07:31
biouserdoyle, just use NetMan to start07:31
instaAntiUSA: yeah07:32
biouser(NetworkManager or whatev it is)07:32
tdawgedogg_anyone know how i can get some more compriz fusion plugins07:32
biouserI always just Net <tab>07:32
TrustNoOneya my card wont even connect to nothing, i could try using WEP instead but... i have both versions of WPA with both types of encryption on my router and those arent working soooo07:32
biouserI wish I could remember how I did it to help you guys07:32
biouserit took me a couple of days though... then when I finally figured it out it took 5 minutes07:33
TrustNoOnesn00zer, you good with wireless?07:33
Z_o-s-o_tdawgedogg : you mean more than it caME with?07:33
|GaiJin|is there a command I can give apt to get it to reinstall all the entire thing, seem to be missing some icons and sheit07:33
doylei am using network-manager;  works for WEP connections.  WPA doesn't seem to connect, or doesn't connect and then work.07:33
AntiUSAok, so how do I add software that is compiled into my Application menu07:33
sn00zerTrustNoOne, not really, i only use it at my school and i vpn don't use wpa07:33
biouserdoyle, does it ask for a key?07:33
TrustNoOneI dont like wep, it only supplies encryption for wireless network, not hard wired07:34
doylenot anymore.07:34
doylei had ran wpa_passphrase and supplied the ssid and the passphrase07:34
doylenow it does not ask anymore.07:34
Pieti managed to let my virtual hosts work. but i still got 2008] [warn] NameVirtualHost *:0 has no VirtualHosts , someone knows why? i dont have in any file NameVirtualHost btw..07:34
biousermine asks for a key every time but it took so long to get it to work I decided not to play with it further07:34
macogwAntiUSA: just right click the menu and hit "edit menu" then add a thing for it and in the command part put the path to it (if you compiled it in your home directory, youll have to figure that out yourself, but if when you did "./configure" you didn't set a prefix, just putting the name will work)07:34
sn00zerTrustNoOne, vpn and wep are different07:34
doylehow do you 'clear' the saved WPA key.07:34
TrustNoOnesn00zer, i know, vpn has nothing to do with what im doing, and i hate wep, im trying to get WPA to work07:35
Z_o-s-o_WEP is a type of encryption07:35
comradjohnHello folks, anyone got a moment for an installation question?07:35
Z_o-s-o_VPN allows you to access a remote network from another network07:35
macogwTrustNoOne: i think wep and wpa are both wireless encryption protocols.  for wired youd need a vpn07:35
FloodBot3nix: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.07:35
Z_o-s-o_ok comrad john07:35
TrustNoOnevpn = virtual private network, that has nothing to do with connecting to a wireless connection07:35
doylehow can i clear the entered password for a wpa connection, so it will ask again?07:36
tdawgedogg_z_o-s-o_: how do i choose what extension is opened with what application07:36
macogwTrustNoOne: right so if you want an encrypted connection regardless of whether you're using wired or wireless, you need to use an encrpted vpn tunnel07:36
TrustNoOnemacogw, no, wep is wireless encryption, and so is WPA, but WPA provides wired encryption as well, its more secure than wep07:36
sn00zerTrustNoOne, in my setup the school offers unsecured ap's but you can only open one page with directions on using vpn to get full internet access07:36
Z_o-s-o_comradjohn : whats your question07:36
macogwdoyle: if you install seahorse it should let you delete it from your keyring07:37
TrustNoOnemacogw, im talking about encrypted on my home network, not over the internet07:37
tdawgedogg_I still have to go to open with Xmms07:37
doyleok. let me check; thanks.07:37
tdawgedogg_instead of dobule clicking07:37
comradjohnI've just installed Ubuntu using a burned copy of the downloaded live DVD07:37
bazhangwired encryption via wpa? ;]07:37
comradjohnand I'm trying to install a number of different development suites07:37
comradjohnfor example, an Erlang package07:37
Z_o-s-o_tdawgedogg : right click the mp3 and go to the opens with tab07:37
sn00zerTrustNoOne, wpa is available and i connect to it with M$ but i haven't found anyone that was able to connect reliably so never tried it myself07:37
macogwTrustNoOne: why does it need to be encrypted between your box and the router on a wired network? do you usually have crackers, script kiddies, and wardrivers using wired connections within your LAN?07:37
Z_o-s-o_comradjohn : ok07:37
comradjohngetting the source to Erlang was easy enough07:37
comradjohnrunning ./configure like normal it says "you have no curses lib"07:38
comradjohnso I go looking for one of those07:38
comradjohnfind it supported in system->(one moment while I look for the rest of that)07:38
macogwcomradjohn: why not just install it from the repos?07:38
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 DVDs07:38
macogwcomradjohn: system -> admin -> synaptic07:38
ph0rensicwhat up folks07:38
comradjohnyep, synaptic that was it07:38
comradjohnso I try and install it07:39
doylei installed from the liveCD and it ran right the first time. even picked up my stupid softMAC wifi card.07:39
comradjohnncurses that is07:39
macogwcomradjohn: why dont you just install erlang from synaptic?07:39
comradjohnOh I did07:39
comradjohnbut we're getting to that07:39
bazhang!info erlang07:39
ubotuerlang (source: erlang): Concurrent, real-time, distributed functional language. In component universe, is optional. Version 1:11.b.5dfsg-2ubuntu1 (gutsy), package size 26 kB, installed size 72 kB07:39
TrustNoOnemacogw, thats not it, im trying to connect my wireless adapter to my router using ndiswrapper, but i am having no luck, my router is set to use WPA personal or WPA2 personal with either TKIP or AES encryption, i didnt try WEP but i dont want to use WEP anyways, but everytime i try to connect it just times out and doesnt establish a connection even tho the driver was installed correctly and is recognized07:39
comradjohnThat's the one07:39
doyleyea, synaptic does a really good job with making sure you dont get caught up in a dep-hell.07:39
comradjohnExcept that it didn't work07:39
comradjohnHere's the problem07:39
comradjohnJust about every other thing I've tried to install from any of the three package managers that have come with ubuntu07:40
doylei get it to connect to the WPA/WPA2 , but i can't ping anything -- can't even ping the gateway IP07:40
macogwTrustNoOne: oo i see... im just not sure ndiswrapper does wpa then...07:40
comradjohnhas failed07:40
comradjohnwith this message:07:40
comradjohn(one moment finding a copy)07:40
macogwcomradjohn: is it telling you it wants the CD? go to sytem -> admin -> software sources and uncheck the CD07:40
TrustNoOnemacogw, according to my device ID and the list on ndiswrapper site, that it should be working, although my specific card is not listed, other cards that are similar and have the same device ID and chipset are supposedly working with WPA07:40
comradjohnFailed to fetch cdrom:[Ubuntu 7.10 _Gutsy Gibbon_ - Release i386 (20071017)]/pool/main/t/tcl8.4/tcl8.4_8.4.15-1build1_i386.deb  Hash Sum mismatch07:40
comradjohnE: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?07:40
comradjohnso yes, sounds like it is telling me it wants the cd rom07:41
brian_hey guys where do i go to install the cube?07:41

comradjohnwait a minute07:41
comradjohnif I'm unchecking this cdrom thing that means it'll download from the internet right?07:41
TrustNoOnemacogw, also read on a forum that this guy has the same card as me, installed this distro of linux with ndis already installed and he just installed the inf file for the driver and he said it worked perfectly, he didnt say what encryption method he was using though, but im stumped because I tried all combos of WPA and WPA2 encryption07:42
Z_o-s-o_comradjohn yes07:42
comradjohnSee, that's what exactly what I was trying to avoid by using the DVD version07:42
tdawgedogg_hey how do i tell .mp3 files to be opened by a certain program?07:42
comradjohnBut I guess if that's not possible I'll just have to hope the lappy stays good for a year :)07:42
biousersorry I can't help doyle, off to sleep.  I found my solution in the user documentation eventually I think07:43
Z_o-s-o_tdawgedogg : right click an mp3.....go to open with......expand command line thing....and type Xmms07:43
macogwcomradjohn: if you disconnect from the internet and what you want is on the disk, it should work from the disk07:43
Survivormanright click, properties, open with07:43
Z_o-s-o_thatll make mp3s open in Xmms07:43
macogwcomradjohn: but you have to have the disk in teh drive07:43
comradjohnnow I am confused07:43
comradjohnright the disk is in the drive07:43
comradjohnthat part I got07:43
comradjohnit's mounted too07:44
sofiankrtwhich command can I use to copy all the .iso images in different directories in my home directory to a directory called Distros?07:44
doyle    no problem biouser .  thx anyways.07:44
cishpixHow can I run public file server from kde4 in ubuntu??07:44
comradjohnbut what you're saying is that I can either be connected to the internet and trying to get apps that way, or have the disc in the drive and try and get apps that way, but not both simultaneously?07:44
tdawgedogg_Z_o-s-o_: expand command line thingy...in gutsy?07:44
doylei like installing 'base' from the CDROM.07:44
macogwcomradjohn: i usually just install everything from online and take the disk out of my sources because of that error... but if youre offline and run "sudo apt-get update" the internet ones should be ignored and only whats on the DVD will be available07:44
