|Prometheus|EnvoyRising, thank you. but i think i need the script to run before anything else... Ill explain my problem. I am getting DMA timeouts on y old hdd (/dev/hda).. i have appended kernel string to use ide=nodma, but still get the timeouts.. i have also tried /etc/hdparm.conf and added /dev/hda dma=off but still get the timeout. its very frustrating as it has increased my boot tie by almost two inutes01:27
WhoaItsPhil-v isn't a switch for it01:27

prince_jammysNativeAngels: ctothej:  i have had this problem and don't remember the solution.  other than the compatibility issue, which seems unlikely if you followed the tutorial, there *might* be a configuration file that needs to be edited (a guess)01:29
lordleemoNativeAngels: http://www.wallpaperama.com/disp-post91.html fond that maybe helps01:29
PriceChildEnvoyRising, modules can be unloaded...01:29

drowner_did a bit of googling - *similar* problems may have been solved with the installation of jackd, whatvever that is01:30

the7thmagusmy GRUB menu.lst file keeps resetting after every kernel update. I configured it to point to my ubuntu install on my current partition, but every time the kernel upgrades and the grub updater does its thing, it keeps wiping the menu option that I added01:31
EnvoyRisingPriceChild: i know they can be unloaded, but my point is that if he removes the module intirely, it'll eliminate the assumption that his kernel options are getting ignored at config01:31
FuriousMojoArgh... I just tried installing Nvida driver through restricted driver manager and now it does not boot past running local boot scripts01:31

SamusMansdsheeks: dell inspiron 142002:10
ropieehow to generate resolv.conf by networkmanager???02:10
sdsheeksSamusMan: i would go to dells website and get the latest drive for your wireless device and unzip to a tmp folder..then use the inf that comes with that.02:10
|Prometheus|sdsheeks, don't know if that method unlocked the restriction - i went to restricted drivers in system-> restricted drivers manager and ticked allow on the bcm firmware too02:10
Ashfire908ropiee, right click the network icon in the top right of your screen and clikc the net info option02:10
sdsheeksSamusMan: i tried from my vista partion, but it didn't work..had to go get an xp version02:11

SamusMansdsheeks: i had disregarded that my .inf ended in 6 instead of 5, assuming i had a newer version, but i guess that's the difference02:11
sdsheeksSamusMan: possibly yes..in my case there was02:12
sdsheeksSamusMan: my laptop came with vista and i tried that one first.02:12
deepcobolfoo can I pm you?02:12
|Prometheus|sdsheeks, ahhh - don't know then buddy. its prob a newer chipset than my card02:12
cobolfoomad_max: something like: "sudo umount /media/cdrom0", then "sudo mount /media/cdrom0"02:12
sdsheeksSamusMan: it will work..just takes some tweaking...very stable at least for me been up for days without an issue02:12
cobolfoodeep: not having time for PM :]02:12
TooShort4the reason im installing ubuntu is cause i bought this lapopt for $20 but it came with XP and it was made for 95. next best thing is ubuntu02:12

SamusMansdsheeks, i have found information saying that i should be using bcmwl5a.inf instead of bcmwl5.inf, but i can't seem to find it anywhere >.>02:14
ropieeok thx02:14
Ashfire908TooShort4, the cd drive does not need to be the complete top. it just needs to be above the har drive entry02:14
unholymarriagedo you have primary highlighted ??02:14
ropieecan resolv right now02:14
TooShort4how do i set it there?02:14
sdsheeksSamusMan: not even from dells website?02:14

Ashfire908TooShort4, select none and hit enter or whatever and chant it to cdrom drive, then hit + (that usally moves it up)02:16
jon_high9000hi there. i was wondering is there any way of downloading ubuntu for powermacs?02:16

sdsheeksSamusMan: you can try to unzip it02:17
creepshow do i go root or set root password?02:17
WhoaItsPhilanyone know a way to get a video stream to work through firefox or VLC that i can only seem to make work on my windows machine with internet explorer?02:17
sdsheekscreeps: sudo su02:17
SamusMansdsheeks: are you saying it might be a zip folder in disguise?02:18
Ashfire908!root | creeps02:18
ubotucreeps: 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/RootSudo02:18
TooShort4it says <>  change values, but when i go over it doesnt change it02:18
sdsheekscreeps: normally you would just put "sudo" in front of the command though02:18
sdsheeksSamusMan: might be yea..some are02:18
J-_Has anyone had any problems with the Toshiba U300-NS6 that were not fixable?02:18

codenameWell last night my Video card was working fine. I dusted my computer out today with a can of compressed air, and It was probably on not even a couple of hours, until I clicked on the Synaptic Package Manager to update, and then it said "Please Check Signal Cable" I noticed my fan on my Video Card was not moving anymore, I got it back going, then it did the same thing, but this time the fan was moving, I noticed there was a Wireles02:18
codenames card basically RIGHT under the Video Card practically touching the Video Card, I removed that, I havn't had any more problems, oh by the way, it would say "Check Signal Cable" every 4-6 Min, I've been on it atleast 20. I also noticed the Monitor cable was loose, but again I tightened that up, and still same result, it's only when I removed the Wireless card that my Video Card worked, my question is, do you think that sovled the02:18
SamusManit sure is, sdsheeks02:18
Ashfire908TooShort4, so "<" and  ">" doesn't do anything02:18

TooShort4i got a webcam and msn/aim on this computer i can show you if02:20
TooShort4booting it in regular windows?02:20
|Prometheus|TooShort4, if you cannot get your bios to change to boot from cd - in windows, download sbminst (smart boot manager). start a cmd window and use the command "sbminst -t us -d 128 -y" from the directory it is located in. this will install the smart boot manager to your first hdd mbr. it has a list of options and one of them is boot cd rom02:20
Ashfire908TooShort4, no just insert the disc and restart.02:20

prince_jammys!minimal | Knifa02:32
ubotuKnifa: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD02:32
erUSULnecodemus: the line 56 on your /etc/apt/sources.list is bogus check it wirth a text editor02:33
|Prometheus|TooShort4, now type sbminst.exe and tell me the output please02:33
unholymarriagephil it requires a directx plug in so....unfortunatly its my understanding its windows only...02:33
TooShort4wait so in cmd do i type the path02:33
prince_jammys!alternate | Knifa02:34
ubotuKnifa: The Alternate CD is a classical text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD.  Look for the alternate checkbox on the Ubuntu download page - See also !minimal02:34
Knifaprince_jammys, is this an actual minimal install or just a smaller CD that downloads from the repositories instead of getting it from the CD?02:34
WhoaItsPhilugh...no way at all to get a directx plugin for linux? hmm...is it possible to install internet explorer through wine or cedega on ubuntu and get it to work that way?02:34
|Prometheus|TooShort4, I mean navigate to where the file is located... so if its on @ c:\sbminst do cd \02:34

ubotuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD03:08

NigelSlinux_trojan: that's not the same thing as the question you posed - no software exercising the authority of your user account could install software - the whole point of sudo is that you escalate your permissions to those of root, the admin user03:14

ceti mean what i put in my fstab03:15
prince_jammyslinux_trojan: an administrative user can  use his password to temporarily act as root.  your user is an admin user, so you can make those changes... you can create other user accounts (non admin) and they wont be able to install anything, nor make any system changes03:15

acee1234if no one has any ideas who might i ask03:17

* nickrud feels superseeded ;)03:18
linux_trojanprince_jammys:  I think I see, you mean ubuntu comes that way out of the box?03:18
prince_jammyslinux_trojan: if you were the user "root" you would have the # and never have to type a password, except  on login03:18
prince_jammyslinux_trojan: yes03:18

TooShort4is there any way i can install linux without booting from a cd?03:19
prince_jammyslinux_trojan: among other things03:19
|Prometheus|TooShort4, I think its possible.. but soeone with more experience using vware virtual machines might be able to help you. I know you can create a physical link to your actual hdd in it, and it will overwrite data - i think if you resized your partiton, and installed ubuntu under vware onto the free space on your actual disc then it might be possible... i don't know about grub installing to the mbr under windows though -03:19
|Prometheus| or through a virtual machine... its something i would have to try myself, before advising you to do. so if nobody here can hlp you with that procedure, i will try it tomorrow and tell you tomorrow night03:19
wease|root + linux + novice = disaster03:19
|Prometheus|sorry fror the flood03:19
wease|windows tried to foolow suit with vista but they went a bit beyond the means to the point of irritation03:19
prince_jammyslinux_trojan: you can't even run a program that attempts to install something without being prompted for a pass.... if you were root, you could download some trojan and have copy files into your system, no questions asked03:20

ToddEDMhey guys, im loading a USB stick into my laptop, but it says i can delet anything , whats goin on ?03:30
ahorneri think they might :-/03:30
prince_jammyswease|: and not being able to change the software without it becoming open source03:30
wease|prince_jammys, the license is key to closed source more than it is anything in the open source movement03:30
nickrudwease|: it's a bit more than that, it's a legal document defining how you are allowed to use the software03:30
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).03:30
acee1234nickrud: i just uninstalled the sti driver through envy03:30
thiblahuteToddEDM>>check if it's no blocked in writting03:30
NigelSacee1234: as far as fglrx is concerned I would direct any opprobrium strictly towards ATI03:31
NigelSacee1234: it's very buggy03:31
sdsheeksdeep, ?03:31
Z_o-s-ogpl is very important03:31
deepit asked me for a pw i enterd my root pw and nothing happend its still sitting idle, my console does not have a prompt03:31
acee1234nickrud: going to attempt to reinstall03:31
necodemusevery one, I have an announcement to make...if I crash off here its because I am killing my computer for crashing :)03:31
sdsheeksdeep, when it asks for a pwd just hit enter03:31
nickrudacee1234: ok. I'll be around most of the evening03:31
ToddEDMthiblahute:  i dont understand03:31
warriorforgodahorner: I am not aware of any functionality like that.  Maybe someone else is03:31
ahornerk gotta log03:31
wease|nickrud, no. its called GPL. open for everybody and malleable at will03:31
nickrudwease|: you must never have read it03:31
sdsheeksdeep, also note that whatever you set for the mountpoint must already exist03:31
acee1234nickrud: i would gladly burn my ati card to ash had i  to replace it in my laptopa way03:31
duniais it important to have firewall sets up in a regular desktop env ?03:32
Z_o-s-oif you dont think GPL is important...take a look at the BSD liscence and all that03:32
acee1234nickrud: mouse mixed that one03:32
sdsheeksdunia, security is always important in my opinion03:32
wease|nickrud, i have and it isnt binding like a normal license with major software03:32
nickrudacee1234: I have an ati 200m, I don't use the fglrx at all ;)  Open source all the way03:32
thiblahuteToddEDM>>You  don't have a button on the mp3 player to block it when you don't use it? Sometime you can't write on it because of that function03:32
nickrudwease|: I think the writers of it would disagree03:32
acee1234nickrud: xgl?03:32
deepsdsheeks i just created a dir with mkdr is there a command to make a mountpoint?03:32
nickrudacee1234: no, the ati driver.03:32
prince_jammyswease|: read the leaked MS documents that show how GPL ruins what would be their attempts at using, rebranding and closed-sourcing opensource software03:33
sdsheeksdeep, nope what happens if you just hit enter when it prompts for the password03:33
acee1234nickrud: what do you use03:33
nickrudacee1234: open source ati driver, xserver-xorg-video-ati03:33
Z_o-s-onickrud : the ati drivers are open source, or at least partially03:33
acee1234nickrud: ah03:33
sdsheeksdeep, then change to the mountpoint you indicated and do an ls03:33
DiploCatis there a fix for Firefox using up to 90% processor when idle?03:33
ToddEDMthiblahute:  its not an mp3 player, its a USB stick and i think its set as read only, how do i change it03:33
sdsheeksdeep, after you mount it it will just return you to the prompt03:33
duniasdsheeks, i've been use ubuntu for about 5 months without firewall, what's the worse could happen ?03:33
thiblahuteLook in the doc about fstab03:34
nickruddunia: you running any servers open to the world?  If not, nothing.03:34
sdsheeksdunia, identity theft would be the worst for me..i like my identity03:34
Z_o-s-odunia : Ubuntu, out of the box comes with iptables, and stock, doesnt listen on any ports03:34
sdsheeksnickrud, you can't say that for sure..03:34
SkapareI'd like to run the Ubuntu 7.10 CD as a live CD (e.g. not install) on my brother's new computer.  But it comes up with a yucky video mode ... I tried to change the resolution but the correct value was not in the list03:34
SkapareHow can I rebuild the CD so it includes 1440x900 in the video mode list?03:34
thiblahuteYou can mount it with th e writting permissions if it didn't automaticly03:34
Z_o-s-odunia : but to be safe you could install firestarter03:34
sdsheeksmy theory is if someone wants something bad enough they will get it03:34
ToddEDMthiblahute:  it worked last night , i transferred files to it03:34
thiblahuteANy idea about VLC_plugin?03:34
nickrudsdsheeks: yes I can. Firewalls in linux protect ports, they are not virus protection03:35
cetme to but since i been going in irc which is about 1 day my computer keeps crashing and i had up time of more than 60 days beofre that so i think some nasty people are in irc03:35
acee1234nickrud: why is ubuntu so unstable03:35
thiblahuteToddEDM>>Try to unmount it and remount03:35
dunianickrud, like httpd ? it's only run on localhost:80 and polipo on localhost:8123 ...03:35
DiploCatwhy is stability in Gutsy so much worse than previous Ubuntu versions?03:35
sdsheeksnickrud, okay :)03:35
nickrudacee1234: it's not03:35
wease|prince_jammys, that is my point...GPL allows for changes and includes SOURCE....other software does not include and is not inclined for including source. the GPL is open to anybody willing to participate in using it and making changes at will as they see fit. Ubuntu wouldnt be around without it. so you can argue it is very important but it really is a very miniscule event when you call it a license.....it is a free agency license that a03:35
wease|llows freedom to the OS, software, etc for ways to work it how you see fit03:35
CVD-PRhey there, i want to create a 2gb partition for /home and move the current home to the new partition and make it default, how to do that?03:35
EADGI'n using the free wifi at the hotel I'm in and I need to do some online banking. Potentually "the guy next door" could see my banking data right? Would I be safer to ssh -X to my server back home and do my banking from there?03:35
nickruddunia: that means they are only listening to the local machine, so not open to the world03:35
duniaZ_o-s-o, i'll try to03:35
acee1234nickrud: just a bit frustrated i guess..03:35
dunianickrud, k thanks03:36
ASTURIASMy system have an error when booting Ubuntu, How can I edit /etc/fstab and put /home as read-only?03:36
prince_jammyswease|: plus the key item: that all changes must also be open source03:36
sdsheeksdeep, get it?03:36
SkapareEADG: your bank doesn't use HTTPS?03:36
wease|prince_jammys, exactly03:36
Z_o-s-odunia : its pretty light, its basically a config gui for iptables that ubuntu has by default03:36
DiploCatEADG, banking sites use 128bit encryption, no-one can read that information03:36
ToddEDMthiblahute: , that is not working03:36
cetlol doesnt use https03:36
sdsheeksEADG, pull your curtains shut and turn off the lights03:36
wease|prince_jammys, anybody using open source keeps it as such. we're not talkin SCO03:36
Z_o-s-onever say never Diplocat03:36
nickrudacee1234: the thing about linux is it's so open to the user, the user can screw things up without realizing it :)03:37
nickrudacee1234: the dark side of having total control03:37
DiploCatZ_o-s-o, well... I didn't say never... but no-one can read that info yet03:37
sdsheeksnickrud, you can do the same in vista..it will just ask you if you are sure :)03:37

sdsheeksnickrud, to fast for you!03:51
speeddemon8803i missed out on the _ in your name but you know im talking to you :P03:52
alex_speeddemon8803, UBUNTU can play my avi file... but "kino," what I am using currently to edit video files, can't import avi files.03:52
nickrudsdsheeks: you said usually, I was definite ;P03:52
sdsheeksyou guys handle the touch questions..i'll do the simple ones! :003:52
rhineheart_mIs there such thing as an application/script that works like a honeypot in redhat?03:52
Bossmanbetaalex -- if you dont know how to compile a package.... video editing in Linux will be beyond your abilities... (not a putdown, just a fact) ... Linux video editing apps aren't .... userfriendly...03:52
sdsheeksman i can't type tonight...tough!03:52
SkapareEADG__: so rather than the hotel and its guess spying on you, your rather have shaw and your neighbors spy on you :)03:52
sdsheekslol u too03:52
alex_Bossmanbeta, I am sure I can handle it once I get into the program.  I just don't really want to stress my brain learning to compile a package.03:52
speeddemon8803bossmanbeta, i was trying to get around saying that, but that is a fact :/03:52

cetgeez im getting demolished by brute force my sshd03:53
alex_speeddemon8803, I can't compile it because mainly I am too lazy to learn too, not because it's too hard.  "Kino" is very user friendly, but I don't know how to COMPILE THE UPGRADE that lets me import avi!03:53
Bossmanbetahave fun then alex... But before you try .. let me sprinkle some Holy Penguin Water on you .... In naminae Padre, Spiritu Linus, amen.03:53

wease|bossmanbeta, LMAO03:54
SkapareEADG_: EADG_ is same as EADG__03:54
nickrudlittlepinkdot: it does, shows up lower right here03:54
speeddemon8803alex, eventually you do realize you will have to learn compiling, fact of life :P03:54
alex_speeddemon8803, Ugh... is there an easy way to do it.03:54
ArpaHi I installed irc2(IRCNET Irc server) and it runs correctly but I wan to add some IRC Services like ChanServ and set a user in IRC to be Operator what I have  to ?03:54
alex_Bossmanbeta, I don't get it.03:54
wease|this place is funny afterall03:54
presumptious85not sure how to change pass though03:54
speeddemon8803alex, not really.03:54
ArpaHi I installed irc2(IRCNET Irc server) and it runs correctly but I wan to add some IRC Services like ChanServ and set a user in IRC to be Operator what I have  to do ?03:54
killowndoes ubuntu has any repository with gnome 2.20.4 packages?03:54
BossmanbetaI know alex... it's ok :)03:54
EADG_Skapare: hmm, that means both are coming from the hotel.03:54
SkapareEADG_: the hotel is shaw?03:55
* speeddemon8803 looks at bossman, i hate being so blunt with the users..but...someones gotta be :/03:55
alex_Bossmanbeta, i am too lazy to learn how ... maybe I will just tough it out03:55
EADG_Skapare: after giving ssh the password I opened a new win and typed irssi
alex_Bossmanbeta, Will you answer my questions as I compile or no?03:55

wease|alex, lazy and linux =/=03:56
SkapareEADG_: and that should be going through the SSH session ... if you ^C that ssh command it will kill the connection going through it03:56
alex_wease|, Well, it's mostly for compiling.  It just seems so tedious.  will you help me do it?03:56
EADG_Skapare: ... and one of the EADG will die :)03:56
SkapareEADG_: tell me the IP address of the computer you SSH'd to (priv msg OK)03:56
Bossmanbetaalex, if you think about it ... the amount of time you're spending trying to get someone to do it for you, you could be spending learning how to do it ..... then next time you need to compile something, you'd have no need to ask anyone... so it's actually less work to learn it that to ask for step-by-step handholding... oh and to answer your question, no.03:56
DancerGirl06i am trying to install ubuntu...03:56
DancerGirl06and it keeps crashing03:57
dsmith_does anyone know if HP is still talking about coming out with ubuntu machines?03:57
alex_Bossmanbeta, Thanks anyways.03:57
dsmith_DancerGirl06: what sort of machine do you have?03:57
Bossmanbetabesides, I saw 2 or 3 links, one of which I posted that would help you just fine.03:57
DancerGirl06its a laptop03:57
nickrudDancerGirl06: have you run the disk check on the startup menu?03:57
alex_dsmith_, I know DELL has ubuntu only machines03:57
wease|alex_, compiling requires your own intelligence to what you are doing. i cant hold your hand and wait for the outcome only to fix it further. my suggestion is to RTFM03:57
dsmith_alex_: I know that lol03:57
DancerGirl06an HP laptop03:57
DancerGirl06it has vista on it03:57
alex_wease|, RTFM?03:57

DancerGirl06yes the install03:58
wease|nickrud, i apologize03:58
DancerGirl06it will start to install03:59
SkapareEADG: you are currently running irc from a shell at the hotel?  or the ssh shell to home?03:59
Bossmanbetawell from 1st hand experience, the box is sweet.... good video card .. the 1 I got has 4gigs of ram... really runs smooth03:59
nickrudwease|: no problem at all, the advice was good03:59
EADGSkapare: Yes, I'm ssh'd into that box from hotel... just regular, plane ol' ssh.03:59
DancerGirl06it says "Microcode "bcm43xx_microcode5.fw" not available or load failed" then a few lines later it locks up03:59
wease|alex_, you know enough to compile. you chouldnt require me to help you when there is a manual that can help you do the things you want to do.03:59
sdsheeksBossmanbeta, i just picked up an HP limited edition with 4gb 64bit very nice03:59

dxdtprince_jammys: so very werid04:01
SkapareEADG_: the ssh connection maybe doubled back on you?04:01
nickruddxdt: 64bit?04:01
prince_jammysdxdt: you checked that "multiverse" is enabled?04:01
dxdtnickrud: yeah :(04:01
EADG_Skapare: I tried to in a new window on this laptop in the hotel, but I think it used the same IP as this nick when I did /connect irc.freenode.com in irssi.04:01
wease|6.03 + 7.10 on 64bit is iffy at best on 32 bit04:01
sdsheeksBossmanbeta, well the adobe flash player doesn't support 64bit04:01
nickruddxdt: yup, it doesn't exist. Sun doesn't have a 64bit browser plugin04:02
Bossmanbetadidnt know that -- but then again I'm running 32bit04:02
dxdtnickrud: sigh I knew you were going to say that haha04:02
sdsheeksBossmanbeta, i can live with it04:02
SkapareEADG_: doing /connect irc.freenode.com will bypass the ssh ... do /connect
cjaecan one make synaptic use aptitiude instead of apt?04:02
Bossmanbetanot much speed diff between 32/64 is there? I never saw much04:02
codenameI got a question?04:02
sdsheeksBossmanbeta, can't tell...it's just FAST :004:02
codenameis there anything like a Ubuntu 6.06 Dapper Icon Theme pack04:02
Bossmanbetathe dual cores seem to help though04:02
dxdtthat's the only thing I think the "64bit?" question can lead to04:02
nickrudcjae: it doesn't use either04:02
codenameI want my 7.10 to look like Dapper04:02
EADG_Skapare: don't sweet it. Now I've got something to keep my busy for a few days... finding out about port forwarding.04:02
wease|bossmanbeta, diff is in the processor more than anything04:02
sdsheeksBossmanbeta, yea it is the turion dual core 64bit04:02
cjaenickrud, what does it use?04:02
pretenderhave installed Koverartist in ubuntu but how do i run it04:03
dxdtwell... thanks a lot sun microsystems............... hmm.04:03
EADG_Skapare: ahhh, K, I'll give it anouther go :)04:03
EADG_.... this is cool :)04:03
Bossmanbetawell I mean experientially-speaking... does it "feel" faster... I've run fedora on a 64bit box... didn't seem much faster04:03
wease|i run 64 bit 7.10 but running 32 bit apps with java 6.03 wont work04:03
SkapareEADG_: OK ... but -L is what you want to make a local connection come out at the remote point04:03

wease|no need for that04:04
nickrudsdsheeks: mine too ;p04:04
sdsheeksBossmanbeta, can't really say..had the laptop for an hour and put ubuntu on it...64 bit never tried the32 bit04:04
EADG__Skapare: umm, so use L or stick with the -N?04:04
dev1nbut it hang for 20+ mins loading the kernel04:04
dev1nthink it's bad ram or what?04:04
Arpa 04:04

Arpa o04:04
dev1nthere's about 8 gigs free on it04:04

Bossmanbetamust suck tho ... no YouTube browsing...04:04
nickrudcjae: yeah, typo sorry04:04
dsmith_dev1n: hit f6 after it starts04:04
VvWolverinevVsoo, anyone know when flash is going to be fixed again?04:04
presumptious85anyone willing to help me install a module04:04
dev1nok, what does f6 do?04:04
dsmith_or perhaps alt-f604:04
alex_This compiling stuff is rather confusing.04:05
nickrudcjae: got lost in the scroll for a bit :)04:05
sdsheekshrm kind of hackish..you are not really running the 64bit you are running 32bit04:05
dxdtnickrud: Yeah I'm looking around there right now.  I actually already have flash installed, so hopefully I can do this really quickly04:05
sdsheeksbut i'll give it a try04:05
cjaenickrud, :p04:05
SkapareEADG:  ssh -L 6667:<IRCserverIP>:6667 -N <username>@<hostIP>04:05
dsmith_rhineheart_m: local or remote box?04:05
EADG__Skapare: ssh -L 6667:irc.freenode.com:6667 -N my@myipaddy   is what I'll use, then on local machine fire up irssi and type /connect
rhineheart_mdsmith_: remote box accessible thru putty04:05
wease|alex_, before you attempt to compile you need to know exactly what youre doing and why you are doing it04:05
nickrudsdsheeks: nice thing about 64bit, you can run 32bit as well04:05
wease|it is hard to reverse04:06
sdsheeksnickrud, yea04:06
SkapareEADG: if you leave out the -N you also get a shell session ... no big deal, but a bit harder to quickly take down if you need to04:06
Bossmanbetaeek 32but emulation libraries............... that sounds like fun ................. (not)04:06
killowndoes ubuntu has any repository with gnome 2.20.4 or 2.20.3 packages?04:06
sdsheeksBossmanbeta, :)04:06
alex_wease|, Oh, then I suppose I should scratch my "try-random-stuff-in-terminal" plan04:06
dsmith_rhineheart_m: look around on google04:06
cjaenickrud, so it is not possible04:06
nickrudkillown: no04:06
EADG__Skapare: K, here goes...04:06
dsmith_I have a book here but its not handy04:06
SkapareEADG__: sounds workable ... doesn't irssi have a way to specify server on command line and auto connect?04:06
dev1ndsmith, are you suddgesting hitting F6 instead of F1204:06
Z_o-s-oDoes anyone know why my firefox always crashes when watching flash video, I havent been able to solve this04:06
wease|alex_, that would be inherently worse, you may as well play roulette with the command line04:07
SkapareEADG__: you should be able to configure that in your setup if an icon04:07
killownnickrud, I know where I got full source of gnome 2.20.3?04:07
nickrudcjae: java in 64bit firefox? No, but you can run 32bit java in 64bit os. I do myself. Don't really know why, I never use java plugins04:07
dsmith_dev1n:  from what your saying the gui is hanging when your booting?04:07
nickrudkillown: gnome.org04:07
alex_wease|, I see.  I wasn't really going to type in random stuff, but I don't know how purposeful it would have been :P04:07
wease|nickrud, i run 6.03 in 64bit04:07
wease|it works fine04:07
prohnaZ_o-s-o: ive had the same problems04:07
fredmvAnyone well-versed in mic problems under Ubuntu?    The should be *relatively* simple...04:07
cjaenickrud, no make synaptic use aptitude instead of apt04:07
dsmith_20-minute hang is way too long04:07
prohnaZ_o-s-o: try removing and reinstalling firefox04:07
EADG__Skapare: Yep, it does. I'll look it up, I have it in screenrc04:07
threefcatais there a way to let mldonkey keep connected to a certain number of servers?04:07
nickrudkillown: look up jhbuild, it will make compiling relatively painless04:07
prohnathats what i did04:07
fredmvBasically, sound-in works, but evidently only under 'sound-recorder'.04:08
prohnaand it seems to not do it AS much04:08
dev1nyep, the progress bar get's to 100% loading the kernel...and then it hangs there.04:08
fredmvSkype, gnome-sound-recorder, etc. can't capture sound.04:08
Z_o-s-oprohna : have you found a solution?04:08
wease|alex_....its all all about super cow powers04:08
dev1nso i should hit F6 then?04:08
nickrudcjae: ah, brain re-engages. synaptic, apt-get, and aptitude all use the same backend, apt.04:08
prohnaZ_o-s-o: just reinstalling firefox04:08
fredmvI've tried messing with alsamixer... and it doesn't seem to be doing much.04:08
dev1nwhat does it do?04:08
dsmith_DancerGirl06: your welcome, your not the only to have had that problem04:08
prohnaZ_o-s-o: and it still does it sometimes, just not as much as before04:08
codenameis there anything like a Ubuntu 6.06 Dapper Icon Theme pack04:08
Z_o-s-oprohna : I never thought of that04:08
alex_wease|, I think I am going to go ahead and give up.  Let me know if you know of any pre-built packages that will edit avi files (add music/transitions/etc.)04:08
Bossmanbetahe doesn't need super cow powers........ I've already blessed him with penguin water04:08
dsmith_Bossmanbeta: ol04:08
panfistcan i run ubuntu without any kind of graphics driver running locally and control the thing exclusively over the network?04:08
cetyes you can control over network04:09
nickrudcjae: in fact, the ubuntu devs are 'strongly' recommending not using aptitude since they are adding functionality to apt-get that may or may not get to aptitude04:09
dsmith_panfist: yea, vnc?04:09
fredmvalex_: have you considered Kino or PiTiVi?04:09
dsmith_nickrud:  since when?04:09
Bossmanbetaa blessing with penguin water gives +5 INT and +7 Bash scripting abilities .. with Keyboard of Might you also get +2 on even-die rolls04:09
panfistcet, dsmith_ my question is not how can i control it remotely, i know how to do that, my question is can i disable all of the local graphics hardware, and physically remove it04:09
cetyou mean without a gui ssh apt-get install sshd04:09
EADG__Skapare: Hehe, it worked, look at this nicks' ip, should be same as EADG04:09
wease|alex_, i think Audacity can edit AVIs04:09
nickruddsmith_: I was told by one of the official ubuntu support team04:09
cjaenickrud, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=3773604:09
dsmith_nickrud: interesting04:10
SkapareEADG__: yay!04:10
alex_fredmv, the prebuilt kino package does not import avis.  I was actually trying to compile the updated kino that can indeed edit avis04:10
ropieehelp me pls04:10
SkapareEADG__: you should set up your laptop to "phone home" with a cron job that makes an ssh connection with key authentication to a dummy userid on your home computer, with port forwarding back to the laptop (-R) in case it gets stolen04:10
ropieehow to install file kerberos04:10
alex_fredmv, I haven't tried pitivi... I'll try it.04:10
BossmanbetaI guess no one ever played D&D :)04:10
EADG__Dam!! how sweet is that?!?04:10
alex_wease|, Thanks, I'll check it out.04:10
fredmvalex_: ah, alright... yeah--look into it--it's decent.04:10
dsmith_Skapare: I kindly await your thesis on how to do that :)04:10
cetskapare thats cool04:10
nickrudcjae: I've been using aptitude since the first day I used debian. Even wrote the AptitudeSurvivalGuide on help.ubuntu.com. I love aptitude04:10
fredmvwease|, you familar with mic input problems under Ubuntu?04:10
dsmith_panfist: while its still running?04:10
dev1ni'm going to try getting out of a GUI hang with F6, but i'm still wondering what it does...or is supposed to do.04:10
ropieehow to install file kerberos04:11
wease|fredmv, like what? input issues?04:11
alex_fredmv, i am not necessarily justifying my laziness here, but I think it is developers' responsibiliy to prebuild packages to make ubuntu more user-friendly and thus more popular.04:11
BossmanbetaAlex, have you looked at Cinelerra ?04:11
panfistdsmith_ no not necessarily while its still running. i am just wondering if its possible to run a file server without any graphics hardware using power04:11
cetdev1n what do you want it to do?04:11
dsmith_dev1n: i had that issue with two laptops, you just need to boot verbosely04:11
nickruddsmith_: the only thing I've seen myself that may fit the bill is the authentication stuff that's going into hardy04:11
fredmvwease|: Well, yeah.   I can get input but nothing captures output (well, except sound-recorder [command line sound recording app]).04:11
fredmvprimarily I'm trying to use Skype04:11
alex_Bossmanbeta, No I haven't, thanks though.  I'll check it out after I check out pitivi and audacity04:11
dsmith_panfist: yes, the mobo vga port should work fine04:11
EADG__Skapare: I knew Linux was good for something besides robotfindskitten and nethack :P04:12
pretenderhave installed Koverartist in ubuntu but how do i run it04:12
dev1nok, cool dsmith...what is booting verbosely?04:12
panfistdsmith_ there is no mobo vga port, only add-on graphics04:12
wease|fredmv, so skype doesnt give output?04:12
dsmith_panfist: wont need an x-server04:12
Bossmanbetahttp://heroinewarrior.com/cinelerra.php3 probably the best I could suggest (handholding unavailable)04:12
codenameis there anything like a Ubuntu 6.06 Dapper Icon Theme pack04:12
wease|fredmv, try akiga?04:12
alex_Bossmanbeta, Do I have to compile it :P04:12
dsmith_panfist: hmmmm, I would leave the thing in the box04:12
nickrudcodename: it's called human-icon-theme04:12
* dev1n googles 04:12
fredmvwease|: doesn't seem to... I was testing with echo123 and it doesn't seem to work.   But the weird thing is that not even gnome-sound-recorder can capture sound...04:12
Skaparedsmith_: set up a dummy user with no privs ... make a key pair for the laptop to do this with ... authorize that key in the dummy user ... cron this: ssh -R 34567: -f dummy@myhomecomputer04:12
Bossmanbetaactually I *think* you can apt-get it04:12
dsmith_what happens if you need to get access back into the machine later?04:12
BossmanbetaI haven't played with it in a few yrs so.....04:12
codenameThat's the dapper theme?04:13

codenameIt has the blue Firefox logo as well right?04:13
wease|compile is different than installing04:13
fredmvalex_:   I agree with you to an extent.      It sure is damn nice when you can just sudo apt-get install stuff...04:13
codenamecause im used to dapper lol04:13
cjaenickrud, -I04:13
dsmith_I suppose you can instal it then turn it off and yank the card, like you do with a crt and keyboard04:13

I installed again to see if there had been some mistake while installing, bu04:19

nickrudCVD-PR: the idea behind uuid's is they are permanent identifiers of a partition, if you change your partitioning (causing hda7 to become hda8 for example, by splitting up hda6) you won't have to rewrite your /etc/fstab to match04:42

mEck0Hi! one non-ubuntu question. I wonder if the network address of an ip-address always has a 0 (zero) as the last octet? and if the broadcast-address always has 255 as the last octet?04:45
BulwinkleDiploCat: for example...  when I used to log out of KDE it would kill Amarok and when it started it would start out with the same song at the same place04:45
ubotuInformation about using and setting your computer's clock on Ubuntu can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuTime - See https://help.ubuntu.com/7.10/server/C/NTP.html for information on usage of the Network Time Protocol (NTP)04:46
wease|mjs, i am trying to get on a fast track to retirement04:46
deepmecko it will if its not subnetted04:46
bibbyMeck0: no04:46
DiploCatBulwinkle, I'm not sure if exaile does that... it should keep the playlist, but I don't think it remembers the place04:46
mjswease|, u'll get bored! :P04:46
mEck0bibby, hmm, okay, how does it work?04:46
deeponce a network is subnetted the net id and broadcast id can change04:46
DiploCatto be honest, I'm not a huge fan of exaile... it seems to be the best of a bad bunch04:47
mEck0deep, aha, the network id is always first host -1 and the broadcast is last host (last octet) -1?04:47
wease|mjs, nah...ill just be worse of a geek than i am now04:47
Carolinai am boreddddddd!04:47
BulwinkleDiploCat: my problem is that if I logout before quitting exaile, it doesn't remember anything that has changed since the last time I quit.  Does that make sense?04:47
bibbyMecko: sorta hard to explain, each oct. can be up to 255 just depends on how the ip is set. and depending on the adress gives you the subnet04:47
cjaewhat happened to dunia04:48
mEck0bibby, okay04:48
DiploCatBulwinkle, well... what you're saying makes sense... but why that is happening I am not quite sure04:48
wease|dunia is still here04:48
deepmecko if the network is subnetted then the net id and broadcast id will change04:48

deepnow that I can see my network folders time to setup an apache intranet server any sugestions on where to start?04:51
Bulwinklelevander: to be quite honest the only reason I've stuck with KDE for so long was Amarok....04:51

BulwinkleI also don't want to load a bunch of KDE stuff in GNOME (just like I didn't load GNOME stuff in KDE)04:52
levanderBulwinkle: Why is amarok so great you use an entire windowing environment because of it?04:52
prince_jammysrilo: the difference between " and what?04:52
levanderwease|: But it in the hardy repositories, and when hardy is released I will.04:53

jaja-miharjawhat is songbird?04:53

Bulwinklelevander: I run compiz-fusion on top of either one anyways...  the two have equivalent apps, except for amarok04:53
wease|levander, it is an easy install regardless of what is in inclusive to the release04:53
Bulwinklelevander: I'm changing now, sue me :)04:53
levanderrilo: the second one can be used around a phrase so that no shell expansion is done04:53
rilolevander: well they are in these scripts I'm reading lol04:53
anonamarok works fine in gnome though?04:53
rilolevander: I've read that, what does that actually mean04:54
levanderBulwinkle: why is amarok so much greater than rhythmbox?  i'm just curious04:54
anoni havent had too many problems running it in gnome04:54
prince_jammysrilo: go to #bash and type !quotes04:54
levanderrilo: #bash  - it's too much to answer in here with all the traffic, i'll come in too04:54

levanderi listen that much too sometimes, but i like to put it on one thing, like a Pandora station I've made, or a radio program I listen to and jsut let it go, not fuss with it all day04:58
Bulwinklethe problem as I see it is that unless you've used KDE you really don't appreciate what you are missing in configurability with some of the gnome equivalents...04:58

prohnafor some reason05:00
alanddnickrud: I found debian main for endebian-tools first and tried from there.  Then i took it out seeing it could come from ubuntu repos.  I guess I may have messed up the repository and mixed dependencies now.05:00
prohnawhen i open an app05:00
Bulwinklewease|: yeah...  I've been a KDE guy for the longest but to be honest, if you're running c-f on top, what difference does it make.  I can make GNOME looks exactly like KDE and vice-versa05:00
prohnaalot of the time its possible for it to start with the top bar up off screen05:00
prohnaalmost like it thinks my monitor is bigger than it is05:01
Bulwinklewease|: once KDE4 gets to where it isn't crashing all of the damn time, maybe things will change05:01
nickrudalandd: probably. If you only tried getting that one package, disable the debian repo , do sudo apt-get update and try again05:01
bibbydeep: system>prefrences>keyboard shortcuts05:01
wease|bulwinkle, exactly. but KDE has been unstable for me so i kept to Gnome so i agree...i am waiting on the stable KDE05:01
bibbydeep: last one in desktop if you cant find it05:02
Bulwinklewease|: KDE has had issues with stability from day 105:02
alanddnickrud: That one package pulled a bunch of dependencies at the same time.  Now without debian main configured as source, it still errors.05:02
wease|bulwinkle, i grew ill of the constant crash messages05:02

speeddemon8803guys, rm -rf is NOT a command you want to do unless you absolutely know what the heck your doing! PERIOD! if someone tells you to do this to a folder like /home...DONT!06:39
iceswordwindows supports format system disk too,hahah06:40
devrethmanokay, so it I sudo rm -rf /home/devrethman my wireless will work?06:40
bazhangdevrethman: no dont do it06:40
presto_Dev...quit trolling06:40
thinman1189I'm having some trouble with azureus. I opened it up and I got a message saying to download an update. Then when I went to reopen it gave me the option again, this time a window popped up in the corner saying it had shutdown wrong. Now whenever I open it it closes within 2 seconds of showing the main screen. The update seemed weird because it mentioned OSX but I wasn't sure.06:40
presto_that's obvious enough06:41
ac1dhey guys okay lol06:41
ac1dneed some more help06:41
DiploCathello ac1d06:41
ac1dmy /etc/network/interfaces looks like this:06:41
nickrudac1d: don't paste here06:41
ac1doh wait06:41
ac1di see the problem lol06:41
DiploCatat least it's still there :)06:41
iceswordarch.ubuntu.org.cn is org.cn,it is damn slow06:41
speeddemon8803why did i get booted?06:42
devrethmanso how do I tell what my wireless chipset is in order to see if it supports WPA or not?06:42
nickrudspeeddemon8803: don't be repeating that here, same for you devrethman . Not a humorous subject06:42
speeddemon8803i was saying NOT to do it06:43
speeddemon8803if you were reading it very closely06:43
iceswordnickrud, i am installing base system,now at 6%06:43
nickrudspeeddemon8803: I read it.06:43
bazhangnickrud it was Neutralise06:43
faileasdevrethman: most chipsets support WPA...06:43
zcat[1]is there something like apt-get or aptitude that I cal install a downloaded package which isn't in the repos, and it will sort out the dependencies .. I used gdebi at home but the server has no GUI06:43
devrethmanit doesn't show up in the dropdown in the wireless thing06:43
bazhangspeeddemon8803: no worries mate; he knows who did it06:44
devrethmanand somebody earlier (cwillu) said it might be cause my chipset doesn't do it06:44
faileasdevrethman: thats... odd06:44
devrethmanI didn't think that made much sense, butI'm going with it anyway06:44
DarkmystereErr, is it possible to update wine without removing my C Drive...? like from source06:44
devrethmani've got an older laptop06:44
speeddemon8803i listed my reason why not to do it :) oh well water under the bridge :)06:44
devrethmanwith an 802.11b06:44
devrethmanno G or anything06:44
Darkmysteremy wine is still ver 0.9.46....and i want to update to 0.9.5506:44
Starnestommyzcat[1]: dpkg -i packagename.deb?06:44
fredmvI hate to keep spamming this question, but does _anyone_ know how to fix the following problem:  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=438554106:45
iceswordDarkmystere, have you tried to build it from source,06:45
cwilludevrethman, faileas, some cards didn't have good driver support, wpa was one of the trickier things to get working in my experience (mostly broadcom cards, which I don't think he has though)06:45
zcat[1]Starnestommy: that takes care of the 12 other libraries that the package depends on (which are all in the repos) or do I have to take a note of everything gdebi installed and do them manually?06:45
bazhangdevrethman: what does lspci show--just tell us dont paste it here06:45
TrustNoOnewhat is there fun to do on linux06:45
faileascwillu: ahh06:45
=== quantum is now known as quaternary
presto_Darkmystere msg me for a moment06:45
bazhangTrustNoOne: sauerbraten06:45
faileasbazhang: depends on your idea of fun06:45
devrethmanbazhang: nothing that looks like a wireless card06:46
faileaser TrustNoOne even06:46
devrethmanjust like video card, ethernet card, modem, the usual stuff06:46
zcat[1]saurbraten sucks.. try urban terror or world of padman or even tremulous..06:46
Starnestommyzcat[1]: I think it still checks for dependencies06:46
bazhangdevrethman: this is pci card or usb dongle?06:46
fredmvTrustNoOne:  check out stellarium and hydrogen06:46
Reenenhi all06:46
bazhanghi Reenen06:46
devrethmanIt's internal06:47
devrethmanso I'm assuming PCI06:47
ReenenI started a bit torrent download (by clicking on the link in firefox), and now I want to continue it...06:47
Reenenhow do I do it06:47
bazhangdevrethman: what computer make and model06:47
simplechatRedHeron, ?06:47
devrethmanToshiba sattelite 5105-S90106:47
faileasReenen: just start your torrent client again06:47
devrethmanif it's come down to looking up specs, i can do it06:47
simplechatdid you start the .torrent in azerus? or what?06:47
Darkmystereicesword, did you get my query?06:47
iceswordDarkmystere, you follow the read me06:47
simplechator did you just download the .torrent to your computer?06:47
bazhangdevrethman: does ifconfig return anything like wlan0?06:47
zcat[1]Starnestommy: no it doesn't, I just checked06:47
ReenenI have no idea what that is06:47
simplechatbecause remember kids: the .torrent only lets your computer find the file. It isn't the file itself06:48
devrethmaneth0 and eth106:48
devrethmanI only have one ethernet card, so one of the is wireless06:48
iceswordDarkmystere, usually ./configure06:48
devrethmanand it works fine on WEP06:48
devrethmanso the card itself works06:48
ReenenI'll bet it was azerus... I'll try it06:48
zcat[1]can I use aptitude or apt-get but install a deb that I have in ~, not in a repo?06:48
* speeddemon8803 sits in the room and doesnt say a word to anybody...aparently thats what im supposed to do ;)06:48
iceswordDarkmystere, if you don't have some packages,it will stop , and ask for it06:48
Reenenno result when az{tab} in terminal06:48
bazhangdevrethman: is there a hardware switch on the machine to control the wireless? my laptop has one06:48
zcat[1]like how I could use gdebi except as I mentioned, this is on a server and has no gui06:48
nickrudzcat[1]: use sudo dpkg -i <debfile>06:48
devrethmanyeah, it's on06:49
devrethmanthe card is working fine06:49
devrethmanit sees the SSID06:49
thinman1189 I'm having some trouble with azureus. I opened it up and I got a message saying to download an update. Then when I went to reopen it gave me the option again, this time a window popped up in the corner saying it had shutdown wrong. Now whenever I open it it closes within 2 seconds of showing the main screen. The update seemed weird because it mentioned OSX but I wasn't sure. I'm using ubuntu gutsy.06:49
devrethmanand everything06:49
Darkmystereicesword, oh ok i thought compiling from source removed wine and all its things and installed the new one..06:49
devrethmanI just connect and it says "this network is encrypted"06:49
zcat[1]nickrud: it wants a shitload of dependencies.. gdebi takes care of them fore me.. there must be something in the command line that can do the same job06:49
bazhangdevrethman: the card is working just wont get wpa is that it?06:49
devrethmanand WPA isn't one of the options06:49
iceswordDarkmystere, you must uninstall the former install mannula06:49
=== carlo__ is now known as carlo
devrethmanI don't even know if WPA is working, the only way I know how to use wireless is through that wirelss assistant06:50
devrethmanI hate it, so It's not something I've become an expert in06:50
bazhangdevrethman: then you will need to do it via cli06:50
Darkmystereicesword, so backup my fake C: Drive and then reinstall it..06:50
GSF1200Sthinman1189: move the .azuerus folder to a location on your desktop and open it again. It will reset all your options, but it will regenerate the folder06:50
iceswordDarkmystere, you must carefull y read README06:50
devrethmanbazhang: okay.........06:50
zcat[1]is there something like aptitude install --local-package=~/whatever.deb    instead of having to get it from a repo?06:50
Darkmystereicesword, its talking about a patch....all i really see about update06:51
simgislabdoes anybody ubuntu under virtual pc 2007? Can't figure out how to copy text from it to the main machine06:51
bazhangdevrethman: I have had very mixed results with the network-manager; another option for gui would be to try out wicd06:51
devrethmanman cli redirects to man mono, which AFAIK isn't a wireless anything06:51
GSF1200Szcat[1]: sudo dpkg -i testname.deb06:51
nickrudzcat[1]: you can use https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Personal to create a local repo, then apt will pull in the dependencies06:51
iceswordnickrud, where is cn.archive.ubuntu.com,i am installing base system.now at 6%:(06:51
thinman1189GSF1200S: I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling both with add/remove and with synaptic (full remove).06:51
nickrudicesword: china06:52
icesword:( too slow06:52
devrethmanWICD isn't in aptitude06:52
bazhangicesword: try tw.06:52
GSF1200Sim not sure if that will remove the config folder in home thinman118906:52
zcat[1]GSF1200S: I tried that, it spews out a bunch of package names I don't have. and then exist. gdebi goes ahead and sorts them out for me.. I want something that sorts them out for me..06:52
zcat[1]but not gdebi.. something I can use with no gui06:52
ReenenIn synaptic, I have bittorrent installed...06:52
iceswordbazhang, then i will have a ubuntu-tw?06:52
Reenenbut how do I run it again?06:53
zcat[1]surely this exists somewhere?06:53
bazhangicesword: no just faster repo06:53
thinman1189GSF1200S: according to synaptic a full uninstall removes config files as well06:53
Odd-rationaleReenen: gnome-bt-download ?06:53
GSF1200Szcat[1]: after trying sudo dpkg -i testname.deb, try sudo apt-get -f install06:53
bazhangdevrethman: just a moment let me check something06:53
iceswordbazhang, then i have to reinstall:(06:53
Reenenthe package name is "bittorrent"06:53
Odd-rationaleReenen: Yes, I know06:54
zcat[1]hmm, ok...06:54
GSF1200Shmmm thinman1189.. I had the same problem, and removing that folder worked for me, so I would try it. Obviously something isnt being completely removed...06:54
zcat[1]Hey, that worked... yay!! thanks.06:54
Odd-rationaleReenen: Try running it with gnome-bt-download (I think that is correct)06:54
GSF1200Szcat[1]: yeah that automatically retrieves all dependencies that dpkg couldnt find trying to install the deb package06:55
ReenenOdd-rationale: Oh, I see... but it's not continuing the download06:55
bazhanghttp://www.ventanazul.com/webzine/articles/fix-wireless-connection-problem-gutsy-gibbon devrethman look at this06:55
Odd-rationaleReenen: Or Unhide it from your gnome menu.06:55
bazhangicesword: nay; just restart the update with the new repos enabled06:55
fredmvWhat would you guys say the best lightweight IM client is?   gAIM?    Or is there something superior?06:55
Reenenwhere will it save the "bittorrent" metafile?06:56
iceswordbazhang, are you from tw?06:56
Odd-rationaleReenen: Open your torrent and point it to your half-donwloaded file06:56
bazhangaye icesword06:56
faileasfredmv: pidgin or kopete IMO.06:56
squeaksfredmv, pidgin btw06:56
Darkmystereicesword, thanks synaptics wasnt showing the updates for wine but doing an sudo apt-get upgrade showed the update and its doing it :), Would you know why my network manager applet doesnt show if i reboot i have to reinstall it (its still installed) but to be able to connect to internet i need to reinstall it to get the applet back... its adding a new applet every time could this be a malfunction with the applet?06:57
iceswordi pinged the tw.ubuntu.org.com.it is 300ms06:57
Reenenhmmm: Error: Got bad file info06:57
fredmvI'll look into Kopete.  Thanks guys.06:57
Odd-rationaleReenen: Maybe you do. :)06:57
iceswordDarkmystere, not sure06:57
bazhangicesword: just a suggestion; you cn connection may pick up--mine usually slows down then speeds up again06:58
ReenenOdd-rationale: Thanks...06:58
nocluequick question... i'm thinking of upgrading my video card. Given that the only graphic intensive things i'll be doing is playing WoW, running MythTV frontend, and possibly running Compiz Fusion/Beryl, which manufacturer's card/driver has the best support/performance on a linux machine? ATI or Nvidia?06:58
ReenenOdd-rationale: I'll restart it, it was only 10mb in06:58
fredmvMan, SDL is a freaking headache.06:58
Darkmystereicesword, it gets annoying having to go into synaptics and reinstalling it every reboot just to use internet...its just about the only netowrk manager ive tried that works for me wifi-radar never worked for me neither kwifi-manager06:58
bazhangnvidia noclue06:58
Odd-rationaleReenen: no p06:58

fredmv(yeah, I'm a newb)07:01
bazhangsaff when you say 'different methods' what would those be?07:01
safffredmv, a sting in the file, or part of the file name?07:01
fredmvin the file...07:01
saffbazhang, the ubuntu restricted manager, envy, and by hand07:02
iceswordDarkmystere, no,i mean what link you use,adsl?07:02
iceswordDarkmystere, what app do you usually use to gain ip addr?07:02
Darkmystereicesword, yea07:02
saffbazhang, i've been trying to get my drivers working properly... i thought i was back at square one till i noticed this video problem07:02
fredmvThis SDL problem is killing me...07:03
bazhangsaff and then you removed the previous ones before installing subsequently? care to pastebin your xorg-conf?07:03
saffsure 1 sec07:03
Darkmystereicesword, dhcp07:03
iceswordDarkmystere, dhcp,that is it,but do you have to use some apps to to dial or something to gain ip addr?07:03
saffbazhang, http://pastebin.org/2085307:03

sean_I have have a folder on my main partition (ntfs) for torrents and when I copy them to my music partition (fat32) I seem to lose ownership of them and my media player doesn't pick them up when it scans. It didn't used to do that, any thoughts?07:11
slopi have a problem: adept notifier keeps telling me i have an update.  when i get the update, it says update complete, but the adept notifier is still there. when i click it again, it gets the same update, then tells me its complete...and the process continues. NOTE: i've already done 'sudo apt-get -f install'07:11
saffsean_, fat doesn't support ownership07:12
saffwhen you say "media player scans"07:12
sean_saff: Why can't Songbird scan them then?07:12
saffyou mean like to add to a library?07:12
safftwo thoughts occur..07:12
saff1. the fat partition isn't getting scanned07:13
saffor 2. you dont have the right permissions07:13
sean_It scans stuff fine when I extract it from archives to put there07:13
LiemptMuch like your mother?07:13
saffnot sure i know what you mean.. it does scan some stuff on the fat partition, but not everything?07:14
ajmorrisplease dont do that here Liempt07:14
sean_Yup. Everything that was already there is fine, it's just the new stuff, specifically the new stuff I took from the ntfs partition07:14
saffwhat i mean is, can you manually add songs from the fat partition to your player?07:14
LiemptPlease don't do what here?07:14
sean_insult people07:15

Darkmystereicesword, well....i cant seem to get a game called lastchaos to run in wine... its soppose to work by default with the 0.9.55 version07:16
saffsean this is getting over my head... when you copy them from your ntfs partition, do you own them?07:16
sean_When I go to add the folders in songbird the folders are gray, all of them in the fat partition are. but some of them get added when I do the whole drive07:16
sean_I would assume so yes, I'll check07:16
prasannatryin to get songbird workin, but not sure how much ppl here use it07:16
sean_yeah I do...07:16
iceswordDarkmystere, wine is not a end solution,if you cannot forget your games,i recommended you go back to win07:17
sean_Just make a songbird folder in your home and extract everything there then run songbird, it's pretty straight forward07:17
prasannacould you get the album art working?07:17
prasannano i can get it running07:17

ph0rensicsaff, thats good ... whats the word?07:21
ph0rensicsaff, really? good lord!07:21
ph0rensicsaff, nvidia card right?07:22
mage__hmmm I keep seeing stuff that tells me how to port forward based on knowing my WAN ip, but can I set a rule that works regardless?07:22
bazhangsaff it seems that there are some 'leftovers' from what ever envy did07:22
saffyea man it's a never ending joke07:22
thunderclesHewus: so you can't take up all the space on the drive, or the filesystem wont be able to do what it needs to do07:22
saffyea nvidia 760007:22
Hewusthundercles: I'm missing 7GB on one partition. Any idea what it's being used for, and how I could go about recovering it?07:22
saffbazhang, no, envy didnt touch my xorg.conf07:22
sean_Ugh, messing with xorg.conf is the most annoying thing ever. lol I have a 780007:22
thundercleswell how big is the whole drive07:22
saffthats all nvidia-xconfig07:22
Hewusthundercles: I would have thought a few MB was reasonable for this purpose. FAT doesn't seem to have the same issue07:22
ph0rensicsaff, hmm yah where did we leave off last time? I believe you said screw the restriced manager yo were using envy right?07:22
Fuzzyhow do i give X a custom resolution in ubuntu?  I looked in xorg.conf where i would normally expect to see resolution listings and I see none.  I go into display preferences from gnome's menu's and I see 3 resolutions listed.  I guess my question is also if gnome believes that these three resolutions exist where does it store this list so I can edit it?07:23
mage__ext2 defaults to allocating like 10% or something to root, which doesn't show up as free in df -h07:23
thunderclesno, on really big drives, the filesystem tends to need more space07:23
saffph0rensic, yea, tried envy, installing by hand, and the restricted-manager07:23
bazhangsaff well there are just a ton of modules in yours; that eludes me how they got there07:23
Tharsishello all07:23
thunderclesyeah, all the exts do that too07:23
thunderclesthey do allocate filespace just to root07:23
saffonly thing that seems to work for me is uninstalling with restricted, cleaning up with envy, then installing by hand with the nvidia installer07:23
Tharsisneed some help07:23
ph0rensicsaff, I still think that when you tried the restricted manager there must have been something left over from envy07:23
sean_Fuzzy: Why do you want a custom resolution? Can't you just take an assigned one from System > Admin > Screens And Graphics?07:23
mage__Fuzzy: check the logs, its probably auto detecting. gnome just lets you change resolutions that the window manager is configured for07:24
saffi think something was left over by the nvidia installer07:24
Fuzzyit's an lcd wide screen tv with vga input07:24
Tharsiscan u tell me where to find a RTL8187 drivers?07:24
niosanyone got Geforce 8400 nvidia problems07:24
Fuzzyit uses a special resolution for it's native resolution07:24
bazhangsaff yeah might be that as well07:24
saffi get this weird problem where when i start X, the "nvidia" module it loads is different than the X version07:24
thunderclesHewus: that is actually what I'd try07:24
saffso i have to rmmod nvidia07:24
saffthen when i start X07:24
Fuzzysean_: how do i add to that list?07:24
mage__Fuzzy: be lazy and google a modeline for it ;)07:24
saffit loads a different module07:24
rikkimaruWhen I open alsamixer, and adjust my microphone capture input (default 0).  It does not stick when I restart alsamixer.  Can anyone help me?07:24
niosi have also nvidia problems07:24
saffand it works07:24
thunderclesHewus: I'd go into the options for that partition, and see if it'll let you scale down the space saved for root07:25
thunderclesI usaully don't mess with filesystems much when they are made07:25
thunderclesafter they are made I mean07:25
sean_Fuzzy: Hmm, there are no resolutions at all in xorg.conf?07:25
Fuzzybut the xorg.conf which i would normally expect to have these resolutions listed has none.  last i checked X wouldn't boot without a resolution07:25
saffbut in the good news, i got direct rendering=yes07:25
Fuzzysean_: want a pastebin?07:25
Fuzzyheck if your running 7.1007:25
ph0rensicsaff, I basically use what the distro has setup to use if at all possible and if not, I build from source or try to find another repo somewhere, that way I can always have apt remove the files if something goes wrong07:25
Fuzzylook it's the default x.org for 32bit07:26
Hewusthundercles: neither. but I have a lot of space around on my system. My 200GB partition has 10GB I cannot use, which I think is unreasonable. Any idea where these options are?07:26
* TrustNoOne hugs everyone in the channel07:26
thunderclesHewus: but usaully they do things like that for good reason, if the partition is your root partition, I wouldn't use up too much of the space allocated for the root07:26
thunderclesbut yeah 10GB is quite a bit07:26
saffyea... i should do it from source. i think the problem is that i just cant clean up well enough.. something is getting left behind07:26
thunderclesummm yeah, go into the options for that partition07:26
sean_Fuzzy: I'm running a modified one on 64 :-P07:26
saffdespite my purges and envy cleans07:26
Hewusthundercles: it happens on every partition, on creation. I have about 6 ext3 partitions over my drives07:27
thunderclesyeah it does that07:27
Fuzzysean_: no worries, i'll pastebin07:27
thunderclesHewus, and it's not really important for partitions not system critical07:27
ph0rensicsaff, If you use apt to install stuff, you can clean everything, but if you don't you can have problems removing what was done07:27
mage__Fuzzy: the installer made one for you, because the default is no xorg.conf ;)07:27
rikkimaruWhen I open alsamixer, and adjust my microphone capture input (default 0).  It does not stick when I restart alsamixer.  Can anyone help me?07:27
* bazhang recommends pastebinit to everyone07:27
Tharsishi people can u tell me where to find drivers for RTL 818707:27
ph0rensicsaff, You probably dont want to reinstall and start with a fresh restriced setup no?07:28
Fuzzymage__: how do i get the installer to remake it?07:28
thunderclesHeuws: I'm pretty sure the point of it is that if you fill up your hard drive and the root can't even write do it, then you'll have some issues like not being able to download and install critical updates07:28
saffph0rensic, i really don't, but i'm afraid that's what it will come to07:28
Hewusthundercles: I have partitions just full of data (like the 200GB one) and that 10GB could really be useful :S. Sorry, where are these partition options?07:28
TrustNoOnewhat was that channel for talking about random stuff? i feel like being random07:28
saffthis install has been a little wonky since i upgraded from edgy eft07:28
ph0rensicsaff, Fortunately the install doesn't take anywhere near the windows install!07:29
Hewusthundercles: my root partition isn't an issue, I'm happy for it to have its allocated space. It's my data partitions which are much larger that I need the space for.07:29
sean_Fuzzy: ATI or nVidia?07:29
bazhangtharsis is that the madwifi atheros rtl8187 or the ralink rtl 8187; they changed chipsets midway through07:29
thunderclesHewus: well, when you make an ext3 filesystem, that's where I generally set that kinda stuff and don't really mess with it after that, but it's probably07:29
mage__Fuzzy: whats the native resolution07:29
ph0rensicsaff, Oh yah dist-upgrades seem to have problems.. atleast ones from especially edgy07:29
thunderclesyou're using gnome?07:29
saffyea...i actually enjoy reinstalling linux most of the time.07:29
rikkimaruWhen I open alsamixer, and adjust my microphone capture input (default 0).  It does not stick when I restart alsamixer.  Can anyone help me?07:29
TrustNoOneph0rensic, depends, sometimes can take just as long depending on disc speed that it was burnt to, disc drive speed, hard drive speed etc..., mine was on 4x disc, took me a while to install07:29
Fuzzy    1366 x 76807:29
astro76Hewus: you might consider using a non-journaling filesystem like ext2 instead of ext307:29
astro76Hewus: because that's what's taking up the space07:30
Hewusthundercles: yes. I've just made some more using gparted.07:30
bazhang#ubuntu-offtopic TrustNoOne07:30
slopi have a problem: adept notifier keeps telling me i have an update.  when i get the update, it says update complete, but the adept notifier is still there. when i click it again, it gets the same update, then tells me its complete...and the process continues. NOTE: i've already done 'sudo apt-get -f install'07:30
DDragonanyone here know how to manually set the screen resolution using the command line?07:30
Hewusastro76: ah ok, thank you!07:30
ph0rensicsaff, Yah I would certainly recommend getting the gutsy disk07:30
saffph0rensic, yea i heard upgrades are bad business, but i really wanted to keep my setup07:30
sean_Oooh, that's tough.07:30
ph0rensicTrustNoOne, I suppose your right.. real fast for me though07:30
niosin my Apperance  -> Visual Effetcts i have now "none" but it looks really shitty when i close a window07:30
sean_nvidia-settings is really nice. :-\07:30
bazhangDDragon: reconfigure or write manually?07:30
Lartza_which is the most lightweight? icewm, fluxbox or jwm?07:30
saffactually ph0rensic maybe this latest problem means something to you07:30
ph0rensicsaff, Gutsy has been best desktop for me so far, well worth the clean reinstall for me07:30
=== Liempt is now known as StevenMacGregor
thunderclesastro: that's what I thought at first too07:31
nioswhere can i find nvidia-settings ?07:31
DDragonbazhang: reconfigure07:31
saffsince messing around with X, i just noticed that i can't watch videos...07:31
bazhangflux Lartza_07:31
thunderclesAstro: that it was the journaling07:31
TrustNoOnebazhang, thx07:31
saffjust get a green static screen07:31
CVD-PRWhy the .dmrc get corrupted?07:31
niossaff: i got that to yesterday07:31
Lartza_whats the difference between flux and jwm?07:31
bazhangsudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg DDragon07:31
thunderclesAstro: but I'm pretty sure it is the space reserved for root usage only, and ext2 does that too07:31
safftried different videos (avi, mpeg)07:31
saffand different players07:31
ph0rensicsaff, hmm weird... and you have all the codecs?07:31
saffnios, oh yea?07:31
WGGMkis it possible to use the Ubuntu RDM drivers for nvidia chipset graphic cards and use the nvidia drivers configuration? to specifically enable TwinView for a KVM switch on a Laptop???07:31
sean_Fuzzy: I'm not sure how it works but maybe you could use nvidia-settings ?07:31
DDragonthanks bazhang07:31
bazhangLartza_: you can google for screenshots07:31
saffph0rensic, yea, was working fine even earlier today... just been messing with drivers07:31
thunderclesAstro: the filesystem wont display the space used for journaling even as free space07:32
niossaff: i had a geforce 6100 but now i try with geforce 840007:32
rikkimaruCan someone please help me get my microphone working?07:32
saffthought maybe i lost something in linux-restricted, but they're installed07:32
thunderclesAstro: and with a lot of data to sort through, I would use journaling if I were wanting to slog through alll that data07:32
ph0rensicsaff, what do you have on your setup that would take a while to get it back after a reinstall?07:32
niossaff: nvidia are really shitty for ubuntu07:32
ph0rensicnios, no way dude07:32
bazhangsaff and win32codecs from medibuntu in there as well?07:32
astro76thundercles: I would too, and I wouldn't worry about 5% of my hard drive ;)07:32
saffnios, way better than ati07:32
ph0rensicnios, I've never had a problem with my nvidia card and ubuntu all the problems seem to be from ati07:33
bazhangnios language please07:33
saffbazhang, yea both.. like i said, it was working even a few hours ago07:33
saffi've just been playing with the drivers07:33
thunderclesastro: do you know where you can edit options for the filesystem after it's created tho, cause that's what Hewus needs07:33
saffand my xorg.conf07:33
Hewusastro76, thundercles: I just made an ext2 partition of 67GB to test, and 1.1GB is immediately used :S. It has a lost+found folder there, is that using the space somehow?07:33
mage__ugh too tired too think07:33
iceswordbazhang, what to do after i finish base system install?07:33
thunderclesHewus: no a lost and found folder wont07:33
ph0rensicsaff, All this time messin with the drivers, could have had done a reinstall with clean dist disk and be over it07:33
niosI run nvidia-glx-new07:33
