jarrettgreen_I've got a IP/Domain/DNS question. I have a dapper box up and running. I use a hosting company, and have say example.com. I have made it so my static IP points to port 80 on my dapper box. Works great. But I'd like instead of typing in the IP, or forwarding dev.example.com to the IP, to actually have the domain registered on the box. Is it possible to do this? I have bind9 running, but don't really understand it.00:04

tolecnalI was in here the other day, talking about a problem I had with my newly installed ubuntu installation freezing on boot. I found out what was wrong, it was the wireless NIC that halts the machine at boot (using ndiswrapper). It's a Marvell based chip, and the problem is known. Just wanted you to know too, always good to spread such information. Just FYI.00:10
DOOM_NXyes i'm using 7.1000:10

sudobashSubOne how fast is CPU?00:11
DOOM_NXdo u want me to reproduce the error?00:11
FlannelSubOne: I'm not even sure Xubuntu's liveCD would work.  You'd need to install with an alternate CD at any rate.00:12
FlannelSubOne: you may look into linuxes designed specifically for older/lighter machines00:12
Odd-rationaleDOOM_NX: The reason that usually happens is when Windows is not shutdown properly. NTFS cannot handle that very well.00:12
FlannelSubOne: you could use the minimal CD, which is a 8mb download, but then it downloads all its packages from the web during install.  You will, however, be up to date.00:13
DOOM_NXsee the error00:13
bobesponjaafter using airsnort, my wifi card stopped working, it is not detected anymore :/ any idea how to fix this?00:13
sudobashSubOne no you have to use Alternate install and install Xubuntu when you get that done... or just get the Xubuntu alternate install00:13
FlannelSubOne: You might try contact your LoCo team, see if they can provide you with a CD00:13
SubOneok so then i just have to order another disc?00:13
hischildDOOM_NX, you can force mount your drive if you want :-)00:13

DjerodekI'm running an HP dv6308ca and I get a microcode error during boot - it continues on to a blank screen and hangs00:51
DjerodekThe CD stops spinning and it sits on a blank screen without any change00:51
PeloDjerodek, I recommend you try the alternate instal cd00:51
DjerodekAlternate install cd?00:51
iceswordnickrud, finally ,i finished netinstall,but not ubuntu,it is debian,i use that 180m cd of debian00:51
donkey_well i know that there are going to be some more visual efects like when you resize the window you can bend it and stuf00:51
PeloDjerodek, text based installer, no live cd desktop to try one ,   you can get it from the ubuntu webise00:52
nickrudicesword: good on you, you now know much more about how your ubuntu is put together :)00:52
DjerodekAlright, now assuming I do this, and I want to install the OS to my 4GB USB key, how would I do that?00:52
Robert125Is ubuntu updateable by CD?00:52
FlannelRobert125: yes, the Alternate CD00:53
Pelo!install > Djerodek check for a private message windows with instructions from ubotu00:53
nickrudRobert125: you can use the alternate, but you'll still need the web to upgrade stuff that you've downloaded00:53
iamchrisHi guys. I have a usb hard drive, and now for some reason it wont let me access and modify the files on the drive. It says I dont have permission. I tried to change the permission, but it says I need to be root.00:53
DjerodekThanks, Pelo00:53
nickrudRobert125: in other words, without the net you'll have a broken upgrade00:53
Robert125>Flannel: Thanks00:53
donkey_well i know that there are going to be some more visual efects like when you resize the window you can bend it and stuf\00:53
PeloDjerodek, basicaly you install to it like to anyother hdd ,  just make sure you set it to boot in the bios, so the grub boot menu  gets intalled to taht and not to your regular hdd00:53
Pelodonkey_, what are you talking about ?00:54
DjerodekThanks again00:54

danbhfivefishie: if its empty, it should resize very quickly i think.  I think thats strange that it took SO long to perform that.  What you can do, is just delete the partition, and recreate it to the size you want01:44
fishieryanacka: ok thanks; is this recommended over gparted?01:44
ryanakcafishie: if its empty, can you delete the partition and recreate it?01:44
ryanakcafishie: no01:44
kostkonreportingsjr, and?01:44
kostkon!medibuntu | reportingsjr01:44
fishieryanakca: i believe i can delete it and recreate it, yes01:44
ubotureportingsjr: medibuntu is a repository of packages that cannot be included into the Ubuntu distribution for legal reasons - See http://www.medibuntu.org01:44
ryanakcafishie: fdisk is /really/ old school01:45
danbhfivefishie: going back to the very long time, that may indicate a harddrive problem01:45
fishiedanbhfive: is it quick to delete and recreate it? it took a long time to create the ext3 partition..over 2 hrs01:45
reportingsjrkostkon, lots of formats :)01:45
fabio2the reason we have ogg instead of mp3 i suppose01:45
fishieryanakca: thot so01:45
ryanakcafishie: if you want to see what its like, open up a terminal and run 'fdisk' ... :)01:45
kostkonreportingsjr, do you see mp3 in the list, for example?01:45
fishiedanbhfive: i asked on forums if 2+ hrs was normal for resizing and they said yeah01:45
fishieryankca: ok ill check it out01:46
ryanakcafishie: 'sudo fdisk /dev/hdwhatever' would be an example, for more help, 'man fdisk'01:46
danbhfivefishie: oh, ok, didnt know that.  I thought it was pretty quick01:46
reportingsjrkostkon, yes, I did01:46
fishieryanakca: man fdisk returns comamnd not found.. but fdisk works01:47
fabio2for mp3 do ffmpeg - and if you read --enable-libmp3lame you have it01:47

kostkonprettyricky, it's already installed, if you use ubuntu02:15
danbhfivechad: installing through the restricted drivers manager does other things for setup, that gets compiz working,  for now, you can just disable compiz02:15

towliebanbazhang, install the package flex but its asking me for the ubuntu cd03:27

Rukusi tired no one got back to me03:30
ka2Rukus: tried kubuntu-kde4 as suggested by bazhung?03:31
mcquaidbazhang, yes i get that, but i want to clarify what it does currently.  you don't have to make a partition but you can't install in free space03:31
Rukusi missed that03:32
mcquaidso what does it do? format your existing ntfs part (with windows in it?)03:32
Rukuswhat do you want me to try with that?03:32
victorribeirohell, i dont remeber how to use this anymore03:32
Rukuska 2 what do you want me to try with that?03:32

achandrashekarzero88: and you have an internal dns resolver of some sort right??03:58
zero88achandrashekar, Jangari , yes i deleted my dns servers and everything and booted up only using wireless, and it was able to obtain those also03:58

Rukusif anyone cares to know, its apparently a recent well known bug, that if you update langauge packs, your KDE desktop may not load. thats why mine wasn't i had to choose US english as my language and had to sudo dpkg -r language-pack-kde-en-base language-pack-kde-en  to fix the problem04:40

billy_how do i partition my hard disk to have ubuntu and xp?06:27
TrustNoOnetonyyarusso, ok so it should startup auto?06:27
tonyyarussoTrustNoOne: yes06:27
billy_without removing ANY of my files?06:27
amenadobrazilian812-> sudo ls -la /proc/acpi/button  do you have this?06:27
bullgard4brazilian812: Your power management setings are wrong.06:28
ganun0rman:I don hav gparted live cd..i ll download it now...after that what should i do??06:28
macogwganu: you just click the file system and there's a trash icon for "delete"06:28
brazilian812bullgard4: they sure look like.  do nothing when lid is closed and never turn of monitor/disk06:28
macogwganu: the boot flag only matters to windows06:28
billy_im totally n00b to this.. can someone walk me through hard disk partitioning? how much free space do i need?06:28
macogwganu: linux doesnt need it.  grub knows where to look06:28
n0rmanGringexican:  u need to plug your hdd in the same way u had it06:29
macogwganu: gparted is on the ubuntu live cd06:29
brazilian812amenado: i ran that, what should i be looking for?06:29
amenadois there that button directory?06:29
TrustNoOnetonyyarusso, also, the firewall starts up itself, program like firestarter is just to manage/monitor/check logs right? not necessary to start up?06:29
tonyyarussoTrustNoOne: correct06:29
TrustNoOnetonyyarusso, thx *huggles*06:30

brazilian812amenado: yes, i think so, 5 listings06:30
billy_how do i partition my hard disk without destroying my files?06:30
billy_any of them..06:30
TrustNoOnebilly_, i would have no idea how to do that without destroy data, you normally cant unless your just "expanding" the drive06:31
TrustNoOnebilly_, if you want to format to another file system you should migrate your data and save it before doing so, to avoid destroying it06:31
billy_is it possibly to partition a 1 gb sandisk?06:31
brazilian812amenado: one ends in a dot, the 2nd in 2 dots, then one in lid, then power, then sleep06:31
billy_and use that as ubuntu's hard drive?06:32
amenadobrazilian812-> can you look over this http://www.columbia.edu/~ariel/acpi/acpi_howto.txt  i think your answer may be in there..i have no laptop to test it06:32
TrustNoOnebilly_, no you cant it has no partition table06:32
bullgard4brazilian812: Please read /usr/share/doc/linux-doc-2.6.22/Documentation/power/drivers-testing.txt. Do what is recommended there. Then put more precise questions including your findings from those tests.06:32
billy_i want to have winxp and ubuntu on this computer.06:32
TrustNoOnebilly_, also 1gb is not nearly enough space to run it, you need at least 256mb just for swap file, OS needs 10gb or more... you cant partition a flash drive, it has no partition table06:32
billy_i don't have anything to back up my files to06:32
amenadobrazilian812-> yah that lid has a script attached to it in events maybe something like /etc/acpi/events06:32

Nubbien0rman: i'll brb, see if that fixed it. mine wasn't exactly like that.06:33
n0rmanNubbie: ok :)06:33
billy_how can i run 7.10 from live cd?06:33
TrustNoOnebilly_, to get xp and ubuntu, install XP, then download a partitioning program like partition magic, then resize your XP partition to whatever size you want, then with the free space create a 256mb swap file for linux (the file system is swap) and then create ext3 partition for linux to reside on, boot to LIVE CD and then install ubuntu on that newly created partition06:33
TrustNoOnebilly_, another option is to just resize your windows XP with partition magic, leave the rest "unpartitioned" and partition it while installing ubuntu from the live CD06:33
billy_what are the chances of destroyin my files that way?06:34
bullgard4"$ dmesg|tail -24; ... ; [323926.580000] pnp: Failed to activate device 00:06." What device is '00:06'?06:34
billy_and whats the minimum space i need?06:34
TrustNoOnebilly_, you to run the live CD you need to go to ubuntu site, download the .iso image file (in either torrent, or directly from http server) and then burn the image onto a CD or DVD depending which image you get06:34
billy_thats what i did06:34
billy_so far06:34
David_Can 7.10 run on good on my dinosaur of a computer? 500 mhz with 192 mbs of ram?06:34
Zigtownamenado I dont "have any wireless extensions"06:34
billy_can i run the os on livecd or do i need to partition my hard disk06:34
Gringexicanthink i'm gonna hit the sack now and t-fer everything to the new drive in the morning.  thanks for letting me know I don't have to worry about rebuilding grub or relabeling the drives to get it to run06:34
TrustNoOnebilly_, if you partition your drive that way you need to backup your data as it will be lost... you need 256 or more for swap file and 10gb for OS install06:34
TrustNoOnebilly_, you can run right off the livecd without using your hard drive at all, and your data will be safe06:35
billy_how do i do that? and will i have networking?06:35
David_Can 7.10 run on good on my dinosaur of a computer? 500 mhz with 192 mbs of ram?06:35
Gringexicandavid, Gutsy (7.10) requires 256 mb ram minimum06:35
David_How about 6.06?06:35
bazhangbilly_: the installer will allow you to resize the drive partitions06:35
n0rmanDavid_:  did u try with the alternative cd?06:35
brazilian812bullgard4: somehow my comp says no such file exists...06:36
billy_will it mess up my files? lol i can't stress enough how bad i need everything i've got06:36
David_its installing now, 7.10 on the alternativ06:36
amenadoZigtown-> huh?06:36
billy_and i have no way to back it all up06:36
TrustNoOnebilly_, you should have networking capabilities with the default drivers, to do that just boot to CD by changing your BIOS to boot to CD first (instead of hard drive) or when you first start up and see the splash screen for your motherboard or chipset or whatever, just hit either F10 or F8 usually and it gives you boot options, then choose your DVD/CD drive06:36
Nubbien0rman: it wouldn't boot. "error 12: invalid device requested"06:36
billy_i got that far06:36
PriitM_Sometimes my WiFi connection goes idle according to network monitor. /etc/init.d/networking restart, ifconfig ra1 down and up, restarting x won't help. Iwconfig and kern.log copy: http://www.pastebin.ca/91724906:36
bullgard4brazilian812: Then please start finding that file in your kernel documentation.06:36
billy_what option do i select to run from the disk?06:36
TrustNoOnebilly_, running to livecd will not change files on your hard drive, but you cant really save files off the live CD as it has nowhere to write06:36
billy_im not entirely worried about saving files06:37
Gringexicannight all06:37
billy_i just wanna try it out06:37
TrustNoOnebilly_, when you get to the boot screen select whatever your media drive is, it would usually have the word DVD or CD in it06:37

billy_i started going thru the install process and everything06:38
gregoriashi all06:38
Zigtownamenado Im running off a live cd does that matter?06:38

Nubbien0rman: http://pastebin.ca/91726106:38
billy_it was asking me to partition my hard drive...06:38
TrustNoOnebilly_, if you want to install, boot to the live cd, then on your desktop when you get in, there is an icon to "install"06:38

Nubbien0rman: http://pastebin.ca/91726406:40
billy_thats exactly how i got the file i have..06:40
TrustNoOnebilly_, after the downoad is complete you should have an .iso file, then you need to burn that to a disk06:41
billy_i checked it with winmd5sum and everything06:41
billy_i did that as well06:41

Nubbien0rman: GASP! gparted reported my windows partition as /dev/sda7, while fdisk -l lists it as /dev/sda506:41

billy_ill have to disconnect for a second to hook up straight to the modem instead of wireless to make it faster06:44
macogwSliss_: umm... there will be a new release near the end of april?06:44
TrustNoOnebilly_, the desktop edition is a live cd, when you boot to the CD just choose start or install, and it should load into the desktop, and if you want to install there is an icon on your desktop to install if you choose so06:44
macogwSliss_: what do you mean "what's up with ubuntu?"06:44

TrustNoOnebilly_, torrents are usually fast, they connect to many peers to download from at once, instead of 1 http server06:49

David_Anyone, my installation is like stuck at 77% saying gathering install information for installation report, can anyone help?07:01
KnarffHi. I have this issue. Some months ago I had a working installation of Windows XP installed in a partition and other NTFS partition for my files (as you need to reinstall Windows constantly). I wanted to have a dual boot system with Ubuntu, so I installed Ubuntu and said yes when it told me to write the GRUB to disk as it had detected Microsoft Windows.07:01
bazhangDavid_: for how long07:02
n0rmanNubbie: is the one wiht the problem in the grub :P07:02
|etdavid how long have you waited it out07:02
David_umm 15 mins or so07:02
regeyacripes, 1am here, and my 2yrold will be getting up probably in 5.5hr07:02
KnarffUbuntu worked well, but when I tried to boot into Windows, it gave me a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death). Somehow, Windows didn't like GRUB. Ever since I've been stuck with Ubuntu (that's a good thing because I love it), but I still want to have a dual boot system. Now, I have tried reinstalling windows, but the Windows Installer does not detect any partitions and if I proceed it would delete all my partitions.07:02
KnarffNote: I can see both my two Windows partitions from Ubuntu. It's only the Windows installer that does not detect the partition. What can I do to achieve a dual boot system? How can I make the Windows installer see my partitions?07:02
Nubbien0rman: what's that?07:02
amazen720David_: give it some time07:02
regeyamust...sleep...good luck with your installs, all...07:02

David_yes, i checked the md5 sum and the verfied the burn with the pre install tool on the cd07:06
iterbullgard4: clearly :) it's probably a cosmetic error then07:06
macogwbilly__: if not, you just reformat it to one partition07:06
bazhangjet that is odd-for only that dvd or all of them07:06
n0rmanNubbie:  the output when u tray to boot windows is a grub error or a windows error?07:06
Nubbien0rman: it's a grub error.07:06
jarrettgreennewb ? here. What does it mean/do when you add ./ to something in a directory07:06

bazhangKnarff: there is a ext2/3 fs driver for windows07:07
KnarffYes, but that works when you are IN windows already07:07
iterbullgard4: yeah could definitely be since that's the kb/mouse together07:07
Knarffnot if you want to install Windows07:07
supershortubuntu wont start on my laptop cos of some error in the filesystem07:08
bazhangKnarff: ah yes well then you need to repair the grub not reinstall windows07:08
David_to amazen720 any suggestions?07:08
KnarffHow do I repair the GRUB?07:08
NubbieKnarff: you need to allocate spare space for windows before you begin the installation. free up space with gparted.07:08
bullgard4iter: So it was probably a good idea of yours to ask me to try lspnp.07:08
amazen720David_: did you erase the previous partition in the beginning of this installation, or your keeping Windows also?07:08
KnarffThere is already allocated space! I see it from Ubuntu07:08
bazhangKnarff: you can /msg ubotu grub for more info and a link on that07:08
KnarffI see the whole windows installation from ubuntu07:08
David_to -- amazen720 i told it to erase everything07:08
billy__i've figured out how to partition an sd card07:09
iterbullgard4: just to narrow it down :) sorry I can't be definitve as to why you're seeing that .. everything works as far as you can tell right?07:09
supershortfor no official reason07:09

David_amazen720 its fine this is an older computer i used to be into linux alot, but i lost my internet came back i am decided to try to install it on a junker computer i have07:10
n0rmanganu: reinstall the grub07:10
ubotugrub is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost grub after installing windows: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows - Making GRUB floppies & other GRUB howtos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto07:10
macogwsupershort: um that's not "for no reason"07:10
Nubbien0rman: perhaps... but grub doesn't read the fstab, what would be the point?07:11
amazen720David_: what type of PC is it07:11
macogwsupershort: thats because the power went out and your hard drive was busy, and the fact that it turned off in the middle of doing something means the hard drive is in a bad state07:11
bazhangKnarff: if you want to reinstall windows that may overwrite your ubuntu--better would be to repair grub /msg ubotu grub and then boot into the windows and fix whatever problems you have there07:11
supershortnever did that with windows07:11
macogwsupershort: im sure it did07:11
David_amazen720 its a 500mhz pentium with 192mbs of ram lol07:11
macogwsupershort: ever have windows want to check your disk on boot after one of those?07:11
n0rmanNubbie: dunno, but i believe that i resolve a problem like that sometimes doing what i told u :S07:11
supershorthow can i fix this?07:11
macogwsupershort: thats the same thing07:11
Nubbiesupershort: this is NOT windows, if you want to complain, do it in #windows07:11
David_it said on the site it would install if i use the text installer :)07:11
supershortno i skip it since its not compulsory07:11
bullgard4iter: "detlef@MD97600:~$ lspnp --vv 00:06; lspnp: invalid option -- -; usage: lspnp [-b] [-v[v]] [device #]"07:11
amazen720David_: I dont think your spec meets the requirements07:12
iterbullgard4: try 'lspnp -vv 00:06' <- only one -07:12
David_to amazen, any suggestions for distros? i was thinking about trying 6.06 Dapper Drake07:13
bazhangdavid you might try fluxbuntu for an older computer07:13
Nubbiesupershort: linux forces checks on your disk to prevent data corruption. windows was dumb in giving you the option to skip it.07:13
macogwsupershort: thats a bad idea.  the check can fix things that are broken if they're not *too* broken.  if your disk was idle, thats fine and nothing will be broken. if your disk was busy, its possible that whatever was happening got corrupted because the disk was doing things. thats a simple hardware error, but if your system files are corrupted the system could become unbootable. if some of your files corrupted, theyre trash.  you can boot from a live c07:13
David_i maybe old fashioned debian07:13

KnarffBefore installing Ubuntu, this Blue Screen of Death didn't appear07:15
tylerdi was wondering if power management works. im running it now but im not sure about power management07:15
macogwsupershort: try booting from your ubuntu live cd07:15
bazhangKnarff: ah well then that is a difficult situation; you may need to back up your ubuntu data and do a fresh install of windows then ubuntu-I'm not real good with windows issues though they do have a channel ##windows07:15
macogwsupershort: and then running fsck on the drive from there...it might give you options to tryr to fix some of the inodes07:15

xTheGoat121xI've googled repeatedly, and found no answer.  I want my theme for sudo-ed apps to be different than my personal theme, but also different than the generic theme included with Ubuntu07:15
supershortnubbie is that all u do? tell people to go to ubuntu07:15
supershorti mean windows07:15
amazen720David_: put some more RAM in it, at lease 25607:16
macogwsupershort: right now its basically just saying things got broken from the shutdown. it might be able to undo whatever was going on and get back to a consistent state if you use the live cd07:16
supershortill try07:16
Knarffwhat if I use the FIXMBR to get Windows to recognize all my partitions?07:16
KnarffWill that work?07:16
NubbiexTheGoat121x: then set up your themes in /root/.themes differently.07:16
David_i will try, lol the computer was made before 199807:16
bazhangKnarff: that may well be worth a shot07:16
xTheGoat121xNubbie, it doesn't seem to persist.07:16
iterbullgard4: hehe none, sorry... I was just looking for something out of the ordinary that would cause that error...07:16
NubbieKnarff: windows refuses to recognize ext partitions.07:16
amazen720David_: or download the ISO for Xubuntu, it's a lighter OS07:16
macogwsupershort: this is why they tell you to shut down properly instead of unplugging it...too many people dont listen to that...ditto on ejecting (or in windows speak "safely removing") external drives07:17
iterbullgard4: it's probably a legit bug, though not a critical one, consider filing a bug report07:17
Knarffbut at least Windows normally says Unknown allocated space or something07:17
rockwellgumpanyone know how to run the math program freefem3d?07:17
NubbiexTheGoat121x: log in as root (i know it's bad, but it will accomplish what you want), then set up your themes, log out, and never log in as root again!07:17

The results are that all my bin and tar.gz files all changed to different icons. when I try to open them, I get a "cannot open this file" message, plus a bunch of other related issues. Anybody have any idea how I can fix this?07:25
complabbazhang: ok wait.. pls...07:25
bazhangThreeFingerPete: if you have a seperate home then just install over / and you will be fine or just upgrade via the net07:25

complabbazhang: i didnt do anything.. i just downloaded update packages yesterday..07:36
FranciscoI think I found a solution to my problem here. http://www.arsgeek.com/?p=3340    It's a Linux program that writes Windows Compatible MBR07:36
complabbazhang: if i boot using live cd, will it restore my wireless connection?07:37
jorje-villafanmacogw: I don't think so. it happened instantaneously after I stopped the process.07:37
macogwFrancisco: huh?07:37
bazhangcomplab: any suspect repos in there?07:37
FranciscoI was here a moment ago. I was Knarff07:37
jorje-villafanis there a log I can check?07:37
macogwFrancisco: windows's boot.ini can chainload to grub to load linux or grub can chainload windows's boot.ini07:37
bazhangcomplab worth a try, then we can tell if it something you installed or something on ubuntu updates end07:37
complabbazhang: i dont know.. man i'm new to linux.. :)07:37
macogwFrancisco: oh...how would that fix a BSOD?07:37
complabbazhang.. ok then.. i will try it...07:38
Franciscono, it can't fix it, but I guess this http://www.arsgeek.com/?p=3340 is going to allow me to reinstall windows without wiping the other partitions07:38
bazhangnice Francisco07:38
FranciscoYou should document it, guys in case some other person comes with the same problem07:39
macogwFrancisco: windows wants to wipe the other partitions? weirdness. i thought itd just say the other partitions were broken but install where it used to be anyway07:40
Franciscono, install doesn't see them07:40
Francisconot even the NTFS ones07:40
Franciscowhy? because GRUB wiped MBR ... i guess07:41
jorje-villafanmacogw: is there a log I can check to see what happened?07:41
macogwjorje-villafan: dmesg shows the kernel log07:42
macogwjorje-villafan: sstem -> admin -> logs has all the other logs07:42
macogwjorje-villafan: idk whatd go with that though07:42
avisi am trying to apt-get install pan and i seem to get a whole bunch of different Depends:  libxi6 (etc) but is not going to be installed.  not sure why it isn't installing those things07:42
macogwFrancisco: the mbr and partition table are on two different parts of the disk though, i think07:43
macogwFrancisco: did you try just reinstalling the windows mbr using fixmbr from teh cd?07:43
Franciscoso this tool won't help me?07:43
macogwFrancisco: i dont know if it will or not07:43
macogwFrancisco: but if it *is* the mbr thats the problem, windows's fixmbr is guaranteed to fix that07:43
FranciscoI thought windows (and its monopolistic behaviour) wrote the the partition table on the master boot record07:44
macogwFrancisco: thatd be fairly non-standard i think...i dont think thats how hard drives work..but then its microsoft so who knows07:44
macogwFrancisco: you could ask #windows where ms puts the partition table...07:45
bazhangor the chairs ;]07:45
Franciscowell..I think this tool http://www.arsgeek.com/?p=3340 is great because it restores the MBR according to the partitions that Ubuntu sees with sudo fdisk -l07:45

jamesrdornSo this is kind of a wierd question. Does anyone know of a application that would generate a very low noise to keep the audio channel alive @ all times? my spdif setup with logitech z5500 goes to "sleep" when there is no activity, so it kinda cuts off 900ms of a sound before it activates the speakers.08:12
jamesrdornThere is a fix for this in windows, but the application requires .net framework, witch will not install under wine08:13
macogwjamesrdorn: uh i guess you could make a little script to send sound at the card every second or so...08:13
ph0rensic_james, is there not a way to program a noise in such away? Perhaps fine a low frequency mp3 and continuosly play it?08:14
ropieehow to update database driver printer?08:14
jamesrdornmacogw: it would have to be faster than once a second, the z5500 goes to sleep almost as fast as the sound stops08:14
ropieeor download driver printer epson LQ-300+08:14
macogwjamesrdorn: your sound card was made by chimps, wasnt it?08:15
ph0rensic_does anyone else do the wave with their avant window icons.. or is it just me?08:15
jamesrdornmacogw: Yes, realtek... but it happends to all sound cards w/ spdif and this speaker system08:15
macogwph0rensic_: yes, until the 5 minutes of "ooo pretty" wore off and i went back to hating docks08:16
jamesrdornthe issue is the logitech control is flawed to put the audio interface to sleep while no sound exist08:16

yo_the first time i booted ubuntu i could see all the files on my hard disk, but this time it wouldn't show it08:18
yo_w/e i need to go to bed anyways lol08:18
macogwropiee: database driver printer?08:18
yo_ill figure it all out tomorrow08:18
yo_thanks guys08:18
yo_tt y'all later08:18
ropiee<macogw> ropiee: database driver printer?<--yeah08:18
macogwropiee: ive never heard of that but um... postscript printers have .ppd files that tell the computer the postcript definitions for that printer.  the printing utility should let you pick the right ppd that goes with it, if its postscript based08:19
jamesrdornSo as you can understand most alert sounds dont even make it to the speakers08:19
jamesrdornproblem happends in windows also.08:19
jamesrdornStrangely enough, realtek sound drivers do not support anything over 2channel using spdiff, but the open & free drivers in linux work just fine08:19
jamesrdorntalked to realtek, they told me to throw out my $25 fiber optical cable and use coax. I told them to fix their driver08:20
jamesrdornstupid people08:20
=== RAOF_ is now known as Aelth
macogwjamesrdorn: on my friend's laptop, his video card goes to sleep like that...or rather, cuts some of its own power.  compiz isnt enough of a gpu hog to keep it from happening, but once it cuts its power in half, compiz sucks. so he has a script to poll the card for stats every 5 seconds so it stays awake.  he turns off the script to do *real* gpu intensive things like play games otherwise the script is too much and they get slow.  yay nvidia.08:23
r4ngehow can i easily tell if sh is actually using bash or awk is using gawk or mawk?08:23
macogwwhich sh08:23
macogwor ls -l /bin/sh08:23
macogwsh uses dash in ubuntu, i think08:24
r4ngeyes i eblieve so but how can i tell or switch it08:24
r4ngealso, awk for example actullay is using gawk, how can i switch to mawk08:25
Flannelr4nge: he just told you how you can tell, why do you need to switch it?08:25
samir4nge: You can make an alias or relink it.08:25
r4ngei don't, just would like to know how08:25
macogwls -l /bin/sh08:25
supershortthis may not be a question to ask... but is it possible for anyone to hax my lampp server through a router with the security that comes with ubuntu08:25
WGGMkhow do I make a default install of Gutsy Gibbon amd64 STOP using usplash and start using splashy.. both are installed...??08:25
macogwitll show that its a link to /bin/dash or /usr/bin/dash or whatever it is08:25
macogwsupershort: umm they could brute force your password through ssh...08:26
macogwsupershort: or if they find an exploit in apache, get in through that08:26
supershortbut it is less likely?08:26
macogwsupershort: anything can be hacked. period. end of story.  the only unhackable computer lacks a power supply and network card.08:26
jamesrdornI wonder how I can just send something direct to the audio socket via a script08:27
demonsporkhow do I get the icons for my mounted partitions to automatically show up on the right side of the desktop rather than the left?08:27
macogwsupershort: if you have a good password and keep everything updated...yes, its unlikely08:27
Flanneljamesrdorn: /dev/random.  Actually, you might see if catting /dev/zero would keep it active08:27
macogwdemonspork: move them, i think?08:27
macogwdemonspork: there might be a setting when you right click the desktop to automatically arrange icons...turning that off might work08:28
macogwcould also be something in gconf-editor08:28
macogwthats the type of thing gconf would have08:28
Gavohey guys... i had to format most of my computer, but I ghosted Kubuntu... im looking for the best way to reinstall Grub though08:28
Flannel!grub | Gavo08:28
ubotuGavo: grub is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost grub after installing windows: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows - Making GRUB floppies & other GRUB howtos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto08:29
FlannelGavo: First link there08:29
Kasperleany ideas why a freshly installed ubuntu (gutsy, using gnome) might always "skip" one workspace when switching with ctrl-alt-left/right?08:29
Gavothanks guys!08:29
Gavoappreciate that08:29
magnetronKasperle: by default, there is only two workspaces08:29
WGGMkhow do I disable "usplash" so I can use "splashy"???08:30
up_the_ironsanyone know how to make some changes in /etc/resolv.conf permanent?  I think NetworkManager is overwriting it08:30
up_the_irons(ubuntu 7.10)08:30
macogwup_the_irons: if you never want NM to change it, you can chattr it immutable08:31
macogwup_the_irons: itd be unchangeable until you make it mutable again08:31
magnetronup_the_irons: stop network manager from starting. system > preferences > sessions08:31
macogwmagnetron: wouldnt the daemon run anyway thogh?08:31
up_the_ironsmacogw: magnetron : well, I don't mind it running, it does help manage the network, but I'd like to tell it about extra "search" domains08:32
up_the_ironsthat it should include for all locations08:32
macogwup_the_irons: not sue, but that might be able to be put in /etc/hosts08:32
up_the_ironsmacogw: true, but kinda a pain to list each domain.  I have 2 company domains that should always be added to hostnames of less than 1 period.08:33
up_the_ironsmacogw: so i can do "ssh mail" instead of "ssh mail.arpnetworks.com"08:33
up_the_ironsmagnetron: i'm actually not running gnome, but wmii08:34
Pieti got a problem with mod-jk connector; in the log i see cant resolve tomcat address localhost08:34
Kasperlemagnetron: i have 408:34
macogwup_the_irons: you can just put "mail"08:34
Flannelup_the_irons: how about ssh $MAIL?08:34
macogwin /etc/hosts08:34
Pietmacogw you talking to me?08:34
up_the_ironsmacogw: yeah, but then i have to enumerate all of  my domains08:34
macogwPiet: dont think so08:35
Kasperlemagnetron: and when i switch, it always switches from 1 to 3. even if i was on 2 or 4 before. really strange08:35
up_the_ironsmacogw: the whole point of the "search" line in /etc/resolv.conf is so the resolver does that for you :)08:35
Bodsdahey guys, after ive been logged in for about an hour, x crashes and takes me out to the login screen, any thoughts?08:35
macogwi never used search :P08:35
up_the_ironsmacogw: i've actually been able to do this on linux in the past, but i'm new to ubuntu atm08:35
jamesrdornFlannel: nah /dev/zero & /dev/random did not help08:35
up_the_ironsmacogw: been away in OS X land for 4 years08:35
macogwup_the_irons: system -> admin -> networking has a place you can list nameservers and stuff like that....maybe NM wouldnt overwrite that ?08:35
up_the_ironsmacogw: and i was able to do it in OS X easily as well ;)08:35
xTheGoat121xMy trash icon no longer reports when something gets added to .Trash.  It constantly shows nothing in there, but if I open .Trash, the files are there to be deleted.08:36
up_the_ironsmacogw: perhaps, i'll try08:36
Kasperleoh. hehe. switching right hits workspaces 1 and 3, switching left hits 2 and 4.08:36
WGGMkIs there a way to disable usplash so that I can use splashy instead???? (Gutsy amd64)08:36
up_the_ironsmacogw: i wish i knew what app that was though, b/c i'm running wmii right now, so there's no menu bar for me to pick apps ;)08:36
magnetronKasperle: sounds like if you have double key binds08:36
jamesrdornWGGMk: does usplash even work w/ your system?08:36
BodsdaWGGMk, id be careful, installing splashy on my machine caused it to corrupt grub unrepairably, i had to do a fresh install08:37
Flanneljamesrdorn: random didn't?  really?  thats...... odd indeed.08:37
macogwup_the_irons: huh??08:37
Flanneljamesrdorn: random should be obnoxious and everything08:37
up_the_ironsmacogw: i'm not running gnome08:37
jamesrdornFlannel: actually running cat /dev/random locked up the CLI, couldnt even break out of it08:37
macogwup_the_irons: NM has a daemon an a little icon in the panel to pic what wireless network you want08:37
WGGMkBodsda: I would think grub and the bootsplash are separate aren't they?08:37
macogwup_the_irons: oh what are you running?08:37
macogwor is that what you meant by wmii?08:37
Kasperlemagnetron: that's what i thought to. suspected compiz at first, but when i remove the binds from gnome, they're gone from compiz as well08:38
WGGMkjamersdorn: I wouldn't see why not if I was able to install and configure it.. but I can't tell right now08:38
Flanneljamesrdorn: Er, thats unusual too.  For what it's worth.08:38
macogwwhy do i type better without looking than when looking?08:38
up_the_ironsmacogw: right right, i could switch back to gnome to do this, but it's kinda a pain.  and  yes, the window manager i'm running is "wmii"08:38
jamesrdornWGGMk: what I am asking is, usplash does not work on my system08:38
BodsdaWGGMk, no, splashy is a program that can let you customize the boot loading process (afaik) so it has control of grub settings aswell08:38
macogwup_the_irons: do you ever use gnome?08:38
WGGMkjamersdorn: oh you said usplash.. yes usplash works.. it was installed by default.. but I want to use splashy08:38
jamesrdornthe monitor just goes to sleep until it hits the gui08:38
up_the_ironsmacogw: sometimes08:38
macogwup_the_irons: do you use NM when you use it?08:38
macogwup_the_irons: you can just remove NM08:39
BlinkizI have two (something..) soundcard drivers installed. I think this is why am getting the audio from both my laptop speakers and the speakers I plug-in into my headphone jack. Anyway, I don't really know. It says am having a "HDA Intel (Alsa Mixer)" and a "Realtek ACL268 (OSS Mixer)". Can I optimize my sound someway?08:39
WGGMkBodsda: I believe your thinking of startup-manager08:39
jamesrdornWGGMk: I even changed the resolution seval times, and it does not work ata ll08:39
BodsdaWGGMk, no im not08:39
WGGMkBodsda: splashy should have nothing to do with GRUB08:39
BodsdaWGGMk, it was just a warning anyways, make a backup first08:39
jastivis it a good idea to use checkinstall or not?08:40
BodsdaWGGMk, splashy can let you put a background screen to the grub menu, so it does have access to grub settings08:40
MDKSIGNIs there a way to disable all restricted drivers - I installed ATI driver (don't think I needed it) and now my screen is blank :/08:40
WGGMkBodsda: now that you mention.. I have this utility called Kronos that makes images of systems.. so that you can re-image entire systems with current configs.. kinda like firewire imaging on MAC's.. but I usually do it after installing and getting setup before tinkering with things08:40
Flanneljastiv: checkinstall is better than straight compiling, but worse than proper package management08:40
macogwMDKSIGN: edit you xog.conf to use vesa instead of fglrx08:40
up_the_ironsmacogw: i run "nm-applet --sm-disable &" in my .Xsession so that the wireless works automatically.  Being new to Ubuntu on this laptop, I honestly don't know any other way to get wireless running08:40
WGGMkBodsda: seriously though.. you might be thinking of Splash Screen Manager08:41
macogwup_the_irons: you can install wicd08:41
macogwup_the_irons: or wifi-radar08:41
up_the_ironsmacogw: what are those?08:41
macogwup_the_irons: and use that in place of NM08:41
WGGMkbodsda: splashy is just an alternative to usplash08:41
macogwup_the_irons: same idea but not a panel icon08:41
up_the_ironsmacogw: oh neat08:41
BodsdaWGGMk, lemme find the site im thinkin of,.,.hang on08:41
macogwup_the_irons: some people's wireless cards dont work with NM, so they use those08:41
up_the_ironsmacogw: gotcha08:41
MDKSIGNIs there a shortcut to disable all restricted drivers?08:42
MDKSIGNor a command in terminal08:42
Tidusi still think that the choice of wireless config should be left to the user instead of forcing NM on the user08:42
up_the_ironsmacogw: i don't see wicd in apt-cache search, but i found wifi-radar08:42
macogwMDKSIGN: you could uninstall linux-restricted-modules08:42
Tiduskind of like openSuSE does08:42
MDKSIGNI cant see anything on my screen08:42
macogwup_the_irons: wicd is found through firefox08:42
MDKSIGN(im on live cd atm)08:42
Tidusthey ask you during install if you want to use networkmanager or the traditional ifupdown method08:42
macogwup_the_irons: ie. not in the repos08:42
compwiz18up_the_irons: if you want to try wicd, try wicd.net08:42
BodsdaWGGMk, i cant find the one i was looking for,.,.but this might interest you -- https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/splashy/+bug/9227608:42
up_the_ironsmacogw: compwiz18 : ah ok08:42
WGGMkBodsda: this is some starter info on Splashy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Splashy08:42
macogwTidus: you can remove it08:42
macogwTidus: it works great for me...the only way to get WPA with ipw3945 on Dapper without insane amounts of work08:43
Tidusmacogw, i believe that it breaks ubuntu-desktop thop08:43
Tidustho *08:43
macogwTidus: no that was in Edgy..maybe Feisty08:43
Kasperlemagnetron: ah. compiz was to blame. it had both the desktop cube and the desktop wall enabled by default, which both grabbed the shortcuts08:43
WGGMkBodsda: thanks for the link.. ill read on that.08:43
macogwthey got rid of it being a dependency...just a recommends or suggests now08:43
Tidusmacogw, i use 7.10 and i think networkmanager is still a dependency08:43
Tidusi'm away from that machine or i'd go look08:44
WGGMkCan anyone tell me how to DISABLE usplash so that I can use splashy instead??08:44
BodsdaWGGMk, the wiki link u gave me, has a link to the splashy home page, where i found this line -- Make sure that you have “vga=791 splash” as kernel parameters. You can add this to /boot/grub/menu.lst or /etc/lilo.conf. See the FAQ section for more. see "grub"08:44
MDKSIGNI've installed some restricted driver for my monitor, now it says "out of range" on my screen, cpu is still working though, just cant see anything08:44
up_the_ironsmacogw: thanks for the help, i'll give those a spin08:44
macogwTidus: recommends08:44
BodsdaWGGMk, on the wiki link, go to splashy home page, and follow installation instructions08:44
WGGMkBodsda: aye, however I don't use 1024x768 16bit I use a higher bootsplash resolution08:44
BodsdaWGGMk, that was my prob,. im sure my vga doesnt = 791 so i changed it and it broke my system08:45
Tiduswell i might have to removify it because the computer i'm having NM issues on has 2 network cards (one wired one wireless) functioning as a router with WLAN as the wan port08:45
Tidusbasically i'm sharing a borrowed wireless connection to my 3 computers08:45
MDKSIGNIs there a command I can do in terminal to disable all restricted drivers?08:45
fotoflohey, i have a quick question, i am trying to use lsof -i, the manual says lsof -i [46][protocol][@hostname|hostaddr][:service|port] , but im having trouble formatting the command08:46
WGGMkBodsda: my trouble isn't installing splashy.. that's already done along with my theme.. the issue im having is usplash (the ubuntu default) overrides my splashy.. so I need to disable it08:46
fotoflois it lsof -i 4 tcp @localhost 80 ? why isnt that working?08:46

PoGzmadcogw: hey.. i found a new driver for Atheros. its madwifi-0.9.4.taz.bz2.. how do i install it?08:46
BodsdaWGGMk, i believe its a 'quiet' parameter in the boot line -- here you go -- http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=57570808:47
bakomhello, is there a way to convert the coding of a file from latin1 to utf8?08:47
BodsdaPoGz, follow the readme in the tarball08:47
TidusWGGMk, instead of 'ro quiet splash' in grub.conf change it to 'ro verbose nosplash'08:48
PoGzbodsda: lol08:48
macogwPoGz: hes not joking08:48
macogwPoGz: on linux, readme's are actually useful08:48
Tidusit should be in the 'default options' section of grub.conf or menu.lst08:48
Bodsdamacogw, thanks ;~)08:48
WGGMkTidus: with that still enable me to use splashy INSTEAD of usplash?08:48
PoGzok guys...08:48
BodsdaWGGMk, yes08:49
El1zsnes wont start. Starting in terminal, it says something like: "Starting Mouse detection.08:49
El1Unable to poll /dev/input/event8. Make sure you have read permissions to it."08:49
El1...Up to "event 0".08:49
El1Furter down it says: "can't create mcop directory.08:49
macogwnight all08:49
TidusWGGMk, if you change it to 'nosplash' that disables usplash and keeps the kernel in 80x25 text mode08:49
WGGMkBodsda: ill give it a shot then08:49
Bodsda!paste > El1       please read pm from ubotu08:49
BodsdaWGGMk, hope you have better luck then i did08:49
WGGMkTidus: what would I need to do to enable splashy > usplash08:49
fotofloanyone know whats going on with LSOF?08:49
TidusWGGMk, that i believe would be part of the initrd that is called right after the kernel starts08:50
WGGMkTidus: so just installing and configuring it should take care of it.. but I need to stop usplash from starting after GRUB then??08:50
Tidusyou'll notice there's 4 lines in the boot stanza for ubuntu.  the "root (hdx,x)" bit tells what partition to start from, the kernel line tells it where the kernel is, then you have an initrd line which calls the hardware detection and in some cases turns on splash, then the 'boot' line08:51
WGGMkTidus: ok, I think I got the info I needed.. and ill play around with it. thanks08:51
TidusWGGMk, but you might not have to change anything in the initrd08:51
TidusWGGMk, in the 'default boot options' in menu.lst or grub.conf you'll see 'ro quiet splash' or something to that effect08:51
Marbugit it normal that when I switch tabs in firefox, that it goes slow? like 1 second to switch a tab? if I got 2 windows it goes directly08:52
TidusWGGMk, change that to 'ro verbose nosplash' to keep the kernel in text mode08:52
jamesrdorn=( found a silence.wav file, but it's not enough data to triger the system08:52

BodsdaMarbug, no thats not normal08:52
luckyshothey guys, what compiler would i need and how would i install it on ubuntu for c programming?08:52
Tidusjamesrdorn, install audacity and create a silence wave or something that just sends a really low bass note08:52
MarbugBodsda, I got that from the beginning when I installed ubuntu08:52
Flannelluckyshot: install build-essential, that'll grab gcc and the core libs you need08:53
Marbugand I don't had that problem in kde08:53
jamesrdornTidus: got a 10" sub, I hope I can get a tone that doesnt trigger that sub all day =)08:53
fotoflohey, i have a quick question, i am trying to use lsof -i, the manual says lsof -i [46][protocol][@hostname|hostaddr][:service|port] , but im having trouble formatting the command, id like to get evrything i can about port 80 on the localhost08:53
BodsdaMarbug, you could double check, by using the livecd and seeing if the firefox on that is slow, if it is then its a problem with your machine, or your network08:53
luckyshotFlannel, thanks08:53
MDKSIGNhow do you start ubuntu in recovery mode?08:53
FlannelMDKSIGN: At the GRUB menu, choose the Recovery Mode option (you may need to hit escape to see the GRUB menu, right after the POST)08:54
fotoflo lsof -i80 is tehe command in redhat08:54
BodsdaMarbug, sudo apt-get purge firefox && sudo apt-get install firefox08:54
Tidusjamesrdorn, a 5hz sine wave at minimal volume wont annoy anybody08:54
MDKSIGNthanks flannel08:54
Marbughm k Bodsda but I don't think it would be a problem with my machine :) or even my network08:54
Tidus5hz is below the range of human hearing08:54
Bodsdaquick question, why is it && to link things in cli rather than just &08:54
FlannelBodsda: Its logical and08:54
jamesrdornTidus: found a nice sound, that triggers the system, but it's not silent at the end08:55
jamesrdornso installing  audacity08:55
Tidusor do the speakers 'pop' when they come back on?08:55
Tidusjamesrdorn, so install audacity and trim the loud part off the end of it08:55
BodsdaFlannel, ok, how is using two of one thing logical?08:55
jamesrdornI have never used audacity, but I am sure I can figure it out =)08:55
NForc3rhey guys how do i get my 5.1 audio to work like it does in windows08:55
NForc3rwindows has speaker fill and i cant get that in linux08:56
BodsdaNForc3r, install windows08:56
NForc3ri have08:56
NForc3rdual booted08:56
FlannelBodsda: Technically if you want to link something, you just do command1; command2.  ANDing them together will cause the second one to run only if the first one returns a 1 (success), so if it fails (returns 0) the computer knows that 0 && [anything] is 0, so it wont do the second command at all.08:56
Bodsdawhy do you want linux like windows08:56
MarbugBodsda, I did what you told, but it didn't changed anything08:56
NForc3rbut windows sucks massive hairy, disfigured, bloody, warty balls08:56
MarbugI think I just won't use tabs and just switch windows :s Bodsda08:56
NForc3rno i want my audio to work08:56
NForc3rLol much08:56
BodsdaFlannel, thankyou,. that helps, but why 2 & not 108:57
FlannelBodsda: because & is a bitwise operator, && is the logical one (in most languages, & on the command line is actually something different entirely)08:57
BodsdaFlannel, oh,. ok,. and what does a single & do in a bash shell?08:58
FlannelBodsda: `cmd &` will send cmd into the background immediately08:58
NForc3ranyone here have 5.1 surround sound that isnt suround in linux08:58

J-a-K-ehello all, does anyone know how to go about setting up a low pass filter through alsa?09:06
SurvivormanOpera is probably faster,  but doesn't play nice with some sites like yahoo mail. epiphany is very similar to firefox but with no extensions09:06
phac3nothing beats firfox09:06
Marbugwhat do you mean with extensions ?09:06
phac3marbug:he means add-on09:06
Survivormanthe addons to firefox, like fasterfox, weather extensions, etc09:06
MarbugI know phac3 but the thing is that when I switch tabs it's just too slow :p09:06
Marbugah I see09:07
Marbugwell I don't quite use addons so ... :)09:07
J-a-K-ei'd go for firefox for all-round no frills ease of use add ons are a huge bonus too09:07
Survivormani'd give epiphany a try... i think it uses the same engine and a lot of similar/same code as firefox09:08

ramviUbuntu does a great job with understanding that I don't want the F-keys on my apple keyboard (unless I hold down fn). When I connect an external keybord though, I'm not getting the audio functions etc. as it understands a click on F8 as F8 (while the builtin keyboard it's audio up). How can I load the apple driver for my external keyboard?09:31
