Soskeli am trying to run 'rm -rf /' and i get an error saying "cannot remove root directory /"00:01
PriceChildAntiUSA, if you read them, you will be allowed to resize the existing partitions.00:01

Soskelnot what in here?/00:01
yo_PriceChild: can i install ubuntu to my hd without having to backup my files? i don't have the resources to back everything up..00:01
iceswordcraigevil, do you mean that i change my debian to make it allow unstable00:01
SoskelPriceChild: ???00:01
PriceChildSoskel, don't ever post that command in here again.00:01
SoskelPriceChild: what are you talking about00:01
Soskeli need help running it00:01
AntiUSAso I could make the current partition really small, and then move everything over from it? then delete it?00:01
Odd-rationaledabbill: You should be able to read/write ntfs from the live cd00:02
craigevildebian sid/unstable really isnt unstable it just changes alot. ie has a lot of updates00:02
SindaciousAnyone know why windows disk check won't work after I booted ubuntu on disk?00:02

Odd-rationaleAntiUSA: Yes, you could00:02
PriceChildSoskel, that command will destroy your entire system. We're not helping you.00:02
dabbillOdd-rationale: it says i dont have permission to write to it00:02
rambo3php pear i would guess00:02
AntiUSAhow will I delete the partition at a later date?00:02
dabbillOdd-rationale: it says read only file system00:02
Odd-rationaledabbill: Can you write to it as root? Are you root?00:03
yo_PriceChild: i don't have the resources to back up my harddrive.. how do i shrink my ntfs partition to allow room for the ubuntu partition without destroying my files.00:03

Starnestommysolexious: df -h?00:03
Odd-rationaleAntiUSA: Good. GParted should be on there00:03
PriceChildyo_, resizing your partition risks losing all your files. Don't attempt it without backing up.00:03
CyntroxYay, I just booted Ubuntu for the first time... To be met by an "Out of range" message from my monitor?00:04
AntiUSAwell this is ultra depressing... but thanks guys00:04
yo_maybe i can borrow a friends 80GB ipod lol00:04
Odd-rationaleAntiUSA: But, you should back up just in case00:04
rambo3yo_, you dont destroy your files. just that if something unexpected happends you might lose them00:04
PMantisI upgraded from 6.10 to 7.04, and mdadm gave me a warning to check mdadm.conf. Can someone look at my paste to examine the UUIDs?  http://paste.ubuntu.com/4985/ I assume the UUIDs have to match between the two files, but they don't. Which one should I change?00:04
PriceChildn2diy, meh, ignore it.00:04
yo_i can't lose them lol00:04
neverblueCyntrox, looks like you want to run from command line, and get your xorg.conf sorted out00:04
Fingeldoes ubuntu have a feature that will generate a 6 page essay for me?00:04
Cyntroxneverblue, how do I do that?00:05

yo_can ubuntu deal with iPods?00:05
neverblueFingel, yes, sudo aptitude install instant-essay :D00:05
chuy_maxyo_, yeah00:05
rambo3yo_, then use Live CD till you find USB or CD-R /DVD-R where you can store important files . or use some comercial solution00:05
neverblueCyntrox, are you familiar with editing an xorg.conf ?00:05
Cyntroxneverblue, no00:05
rrboxmy "brother mfc 8300" printer is recognized, but not the scanner from it on xsane, does that mean i'm out of luck ?00:05
neverblueCyntrox, do you have an Ubuntu Live CD ?00:05
yo_what about an ipod rambo?00:05
yo_an 80gb00:06
Fingelafter the essay I have to write some poems, Im going to cut and paste a large block of text from this channel and only use the words I find here00:06
yo_i have a 50 gb hd anyways lol00:06
rambo3to partition. but so far fdisk /ubuntu paritioner was the best solution for me00:06
EstesarkHi guys. I'm running the Ubuntu Live CD at the moment and am about to install, but I'd like a little help with partitioning. I'm not really familiar with it. Could someone suggest a good proposal for me?00:06
Fingelshould be some interesting poems00:06
Cyntroxneverblue, it doesn't work, I installed via the alternate CD. I have Windows XP installed though00:06
dabbillOdd-rationale: i can browse the NTFS partitions but dont have permission to do any thing with them00:06
neverbluefunny for a linux channel, ppl really mention Windows alot00:06
n2diyFingel: I think we are copyleft here, be careful.00:07
neverblueCyntrox, did you burn it then, or do you still have it around ?00:07
FingelNTFS write support is experimental, but if you want to try it install ntfs-tools (I think)00:07
CyntroxI still have a live CD.00:07
Flare183I'm back00:07
neverblueFingel, not in Gutsy, its in the OS00:07
yo_can someone help me with connecting to the net from livecd?00:07
rambo3yo_, if i where you i would start Live CD and install gnome paritioner and resize the parition manualy00:07
Flare183yo_: yeah how do you connect to the internet usually?00:08
Cyntroxneverblue: I still have a live CD, but when I tried using it last time I just got lots of errors after I pressed "install"00:08
yo_wireless internet..00:08
neverblueCyntrox, then I would do some research with the type of video card you have, and what you need to change in your xorg.conf, but first you need a terminal or boot off the Live CD00:08
Flare183yo_: bcm?00:08
yo_rambo3: is there a risk of loosing my files that way?00:08
yo_yes broadcom00:08
SindaciousAnyone know why windows disk check won't work after I booted ubuntu on disk?00:08
Flare183yo_: Broadcom wirless card?00:08
Flare183yo_: ok you need two files00:08
StarnestommySindacious: check in ##windows00:08
neverblueCyntrox, using the Live CD, you will not be _installing_ but using it to edit/view your xorg.conf00:08
n2diyCyntrox: what type of errors?00:08
rambo3yo_, you can lose your files by starting your computer , there is always risk00:08
yo_which ones?00:08
Flare183yo_: ummm.... let me find the link one sec00:09
yo_how big is the risk rambo?00:09
ArthurArchnixstill working on getting my wireless to come back up after suspend/resume. Poking around in /etc/default/acpi-support, since some people wrote that adding "networking" to services would force it to be stopped then restarted. That didn't work, but now I'm looking at a line that says network cards are unloaded unless added to whitelist. Am I barking up the wrong tree here, or should I try adding the module responsible for my wireless?00:09
Intro5pectStill getting CANNOT READ CD-ROM RELEASE at detect and mount part of install00:09
Cyntroxneverblue: I have nVidia 7900 some weird letters00:09
SindaciousStarnestommy: I figured this might be the right place to ask seeing it didn't happen until after the Ubuntu boot00:09
Intro5pectmemory tested fine00:09
yo_rambo3: what is the risk?00:09
neverblueCyntrox, thats great :)00:09
ubotunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like Freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit00:09
rjeffriesI notice that Pidegon (nee Gaim) does not come back cleanly after a suspend on Gutsy. anybody else see this?00:09
yo_rambo3:is there anyway i can reduce the risk?00:10

WhiteNerdNB2000: Expected it to be unmount but it worked.01:10
NB2000WhiteNerd depending on your version, you might try the "eject" command.01:10

mindheavyi am fixing to install ubuntu on a laptop of mine with wireless, reading the post on the ubuntu forums, on dell inspiron wireless (broadcom 1390) i see that it has the user updating some files before moving on to configure the wireless, i have no other way of connecting other than wireless, anyone have any suggestions as i would not be able to update anything without my wireless working in...02:13

Pelomindheavy, get the files through another cmputer , and copy them on a usb drive or something02:14

WhiteNerdFlannel: That didn't work adding the last line didn't work. How would I check my sudoers file?02:16
FlannelWhiteNerd: you just did.  You'll also need to create the admin group.  Which is why I ask if you may have an interrupted install, because group creation/etc are done at the end.02:16
Pelomindheavy, build-essential is on the install cd you can use it as a repos just pop the cd in and you should be asked if you want to add it as a repository02:16
mneptokfoso: so hal is running. that's why you can;t start it02:16

kernfreakthen you 1. dont have libcurl installed, or the program is looking in the wrong place for the lib "make a link"02:37

JohnRobertLinux (commonly pronounced IPA: /ˈlɪnəks/ in English; variants exist[1]) is a Unix-like computer operating system.

untermenschsee that's what i wanted02:59
kernfreakka2, acually no, one application stores files in different dirs on the hd, whereas in windows one folder under Program Files is devoted to that app, making it easier to find binarys and docs relating to that app02:59

cnstarzi need help getting my hdtv to work with linux03:02

pkazakoffX seems to run fine.  I get the login screen, but when KDM loads, it reaches the "Starting System Services" stage and quits back to the session login screen.03:03

kernfreakI think my first *nix was made out of stone03:04

flowOverin firefox, i open a torrent and it asks what program to use.  how do i add transmission to that list?03:04
Odd-rationaleuntermensch: The difference is the Desktop Envirenment. Ubuntu uses gnome, xubuntu uses xfce03:04
storm-zennickrud: Hehe... My experience was a little more devastating.  Stayed with core until 3 days ago, and still didn't want to go to Ubuntu because I knew they were related. :P03:04
arakthorflowOver: I think you can do it inside the firefox preferences03:05
kernfreakno plug and play, i think all *nix needs to be glued together a lil better " a lil more integration" between apps03:05
flowOveryou can do it from that panel, but when i get to the menu to choose the application, i can't find transmission in the filesystem and the search tool isn't working03:05
ka2kernfreak: this is happening alot with linux these days03:05

underwatercowIs there a better place to go to ask about Linux security?03:17
fredmvthanks chris0... totally forgot about that.03:17
nickrudpanfist: maybe something like for f in `ls -1d *` ; do  <find string> ; done03:17

underwatercowpuff, Scunizi: I have noticed log entries that are VERY suspicious, and I want to verify that they are, in fact, what they appear and a good course of action to take, if any03:18
puffunderwatercow: What motivates your question?03:19
jribpanfist: the answer to your original question about find seems to be to append '-mindepth 1'03:19
puffunderwatercow: Ah, well, yeah, then this is probably the place.  #linux can also be useful.03:19
zachalinkI gots a question: How do I install tar.gz uncompiled source code packages?03:19
jribzachalink: what are you trying to install?03:19
puffunderwatercow: What are you seeing?  Start with which log files.03:19
underwatercowpuff: auth.log in particular03:19
Scuniziunderwatercow, You can paste the log to paste bin for puff to look at.03:19
kernfreakzachalink, decompress, ./configure, make, make install03:19
kernfreakmake sure deps are met first03:19
Presarioerm.. anybody got an answer? what does "SOL in S4" from my bios do?03:20
panfistjrib thank you03:20
chris0zachalink: you need to sudo kernfreak's make install03:20
jribzachalink: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Songbird03:20
jane_kernfreak, he will need build essentials too03:20
underwatercowIs there any security risk to me posting my auth.log file? It will reveal my computer name, etc.03:20
kernfreakerrghh, this is ubuntu03:20
chris0Presario: I don't have anything useful to contribute to that. I can crack plenty of jokes about what SOL means, though03:20
jribzachalink: I'd be a bit wary of that script though03:20
kernfreakyes, sudo it, i would usually su root03:21
puffunderwatercow: There's always a risk, but in this case  probably not a huge one.  Make sure you use pastebin and make sure you mark it for th e shortest cache time.03:21
Jamesinatorkernfreak: Any other blinding insights into how to fix this?03:21
zachalinkjrib: how come?03:21
underwatercowpuff: alright, let me paste it...03:21
chris0kernfreak: apparently su root is considered illegal here03:21
puffunderwatercow: If you're really not comfortable, then do a search&replace on your domain name and your ip address in the log before oy post it.03:21
jribzachalink: because I have not read, so I can't tell you it is safe03:21
kernfreakchris0, seems that way, ubuntu sudos everything, you can however login as root03:21
kernfreakin gmd, but you have to enable it03:22
kernfreakgmd = gdm03:22
zachalinkjrib: thank you for the link and help03:22
underwatercowpuff: what is a good paste bin address, I always forget it03:22
chris0yes but if you say that here ubotu yells at you. I'm not sure why....03:22

kernfreaki understand that for the common user, a binary package is so much more usable, but when these are not available in ubuntu, there is no choice but to either do without or try at building it, it's not off topic03:39

underwatercowScunizi: Yes. And I normally have a firewall going, though I haven't had it up the last couple days because I did a re-install. The thing that makes my uneasy is that there are many failed login attempts from possibly hundreds of usernames over ssh2. I want to know if that's normal, or if I should be concerned and get my firewall back up asap. :-p03:40

AngryElfwhat app could do command line burning of a file/folder to cdrom?03:56
iceswordtime for lunch,goodbye03:56
pufftripwire was the research project that first created this sort of thing.  You'd be looking for not necessarily tripwire itself, but some tripwire-like integrity checker.  Basically it does a bunch of cryptographically strong checksums on all your files.  You keep the tripwire checksums and the checking software offline.  If you suspect a hack, you run tripwire against your system to see if any of the binaries, etc, have been altered.03:56
ka2Khajavi: using c gtk or c++ gtk?03:56

biabialol. ya i know, now. i was hoping for the best03:57
puffunderwatercow: Yes.03:57

matthiaska2 it can restrict accesss and have some kind if tripwire in it ?04:07
bazhangmatthias ah okay--well linux has something called iptables--a bit different than the windows one--a decent front end is called firestarter you can install it from the repos04:07
ka2kernfreak: so python or c#04:07
ka2matthias: tripwire????04:07
Khajavioloughlin: I know. thank but it is interperter04:07
kernfreakdont know enough about python to compare it04:07
ka2Khajavi: no it is just automatticly compiled into a .pyc file04:08
matthiaska2 yes if someone gets into my system than i kan go back and see when and what was maed ...04:08
oloughlin75Khajavi: python is interpreted, I think04:08
kernfreakpython, perl, php04:08
Khajavikia2: compliling pyhthon is interesting fo me04:08
bazhangmatt3453: you have to sudo to use flash? any reason to set it up that way?04:08
ka2oloughlin75: no it just acts like it04:08
ka2oloughlin75: it uses bytecode like java & c#04:09
ka2oloughlin75: as .pyc files04:09
matthiaska2 trap wire i mean ...04:09
ka2matthias: no its tripwire04:09
oloughlin75ka2: ahhh, I always thought it was interpreted04:09
matthiasokey thank toy ka204:09
Khajaviolo...: I google it. thank for your info04:09
matthiaska2: tripwire is the one to use for that matter ...04:10
Khajavikia2: I so04:10
kernfreaksee there, thats how much i know of python, im familliar with the semantics but never explored it beyond that04:10
ka2matthias: yes04:10
ka2matthias: http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/4904:10
matthiaska2 i mean iptables have that kind of options of some kind ...04:10
matt3453bazhang: no, i'm just talking about using it in firefox04:10
matt3453bazhang: not running anything from the command line04:10
matthiaska2: thanks ...04:11
ka2kernfreak: its a common misconception04:11
matt3453its actually for my girlfriend's mom and the gf's siblings04:11
bazhangmatt3453: you have the flash nonfree installed for firefox then? what is the issue I am not really clear there04:11
matthiasanother thing ka2 if not to busy ...04:11
matt3453bazhang: i can login to my admin account, open firefox, and view flash, but any of the 'desktop' users, ie little kids, cant view any of the flash04:12
ka2matthias: i like to multitask :)04:12
matt3453is there some permissions thing i need to do?04:12
matthiasok :)04:12
ka2matthias: so what is it?04:12
kernfreakdid you install flash as root04:12
biabiahow would i start GDM04:12
ka2!justask | matthias04:12
ubotumatthias: Please don't ask to ask a question, ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely answer. :-)04:12
bazhangmatt3453: you have different user accounts set up for other people?04:12

arakthorbiabia: sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start (I think), or you might be able to use startx if you're in a text only console04:13
bazhangmatt3453: then set up the flash plugin for their accounts04:13
matthiasthe bluetooth is an sonyericsson and detected by ubuntu but not by skype ...04:13

craigbass1976Is there a way in nautilus to go into a folder full of images and view as thumbnails?  I read some discussion in the forums, but didn't see any definite "Yay" or "nay"04:14
EnKA freshly downloaded Ubuntu 7.10 - when botting with the CD, I get the option to boot Ubuntu, the progress bar spins back and forth, and then text lines begin to appear and it locks up at "running local boot scripts" and it never continues.  Any wisdom or advice?04:14
AntiUSAhow come everytime I try to adjust the size of my parition it says "The test of the file system with type ext3 in parition #1 of SCSI (0,0,0) (sda) found uncorrected errors." and if I try to contionue it fails?04:14
matthiasnow i got saome reading to do ...04:14
matthiassome ...04:14
matt3453seems like something that should be able to get accomplished by a permissions tap or something04:14
ka2EnK: wait a little while04:14
jeffMASTERflexcraigbass1976: yes, images should show as thumbnails04:14
neowhen i open some applications it edits the /etc/hosts file and pc starts to work slowly   ,,, how to deny the access to write to these files...04:14
matthiasthank you all, i do not want to be rude but i will get back and read on this tips o got, thank you ...04:14
EnKka2 - was 12 hours long enough?!04:14
AngryElfEnK: wait longer, run the disk check to make sure your ISO is good, start figuring out which hardware part is incompatible by process of elimination04:15
non-anonwhat's the command line command to find out what my local IP address is?04:15
neowhen i open some applications it edits the /etc/hosts file and pc starts to work slowly   ,,, how to deny the access to write to these files...04:15
ka2EnK: about 12 hours too long :)04:15
jribneo: what application?  It can't edit /etc/hosts unless you are running it with sudo.04:15
matt3453neo - that's your pc's dns server basically.... if your system has been up for a long time it might be sucking up ram or something??04:15
craigbass1976jeffMASTERflex, I only see icons04:15
neowhen i open some applications they edits the /etc/hosts file and pc starts to work slowly   ,,, how to deny the access to write to these files...04:15
craigbass1976jeffMASTERflex, I can view as list, or icons04:15
ka2neo: stop asking we are trying to answer!!!!!!!!!04:15
bazhangerik try running with the option acpi=off04:15
jeffMASTERflexcraigbass1976: in nautilus go to Edit/Preferences/Preview to see the thumbnail settings04:15
kernfreakwhat I didnt know is that python produces intermediate byte code in the way that c# and java do, that would make it a non-interpreted lang04:15
EnKthanks ka2 - I kinda thought so too.04:15
AntiUSAhow come everytime I try to adjust the size of my parition it says "The test of the file system with type ext3 in parition #1 of SCSI (0,0,0) (sda) found uncorrected errors." and if I try to contionue it fails?04:16
matthiashi guys, just like to reccomend noscritp for firefox, i like it a lot ...04:16

ka2matthias: offtopic04:16
endomy amarok says I can't play mp3's..how can I fix it?04:16
jeffMASTERflexcraigbass1976: by default nautilus is set up to only display thumbnails of images that are less than 5MB in size04:16
biabiahow would i set gdm as the default display manager04:16
ka2matthias: and its a pain actually04:16
EnKacpi-off   Mkay.04:16
kernfreakendo, install mp3 support04:16
bazhangendo install ubuntu-restricted-extras04:16
bruenigbiabia: just make sure the gdm daemon starts04:17
matthiaska2 : why ?04:17
EnKthanks y'all.  maybe back in a while.04:17
bruenigand the others don't04:17
ka2matthias: because heaps of things use javascript -even gmail04:17
arakthorendo: usually it pops up a box asking if you would like to install mp3 support for amarok. If that doesn't show up, go to the amarok website and follow the instructions there04:17
matthiaska2: well you can allow the script to run on that page and on other more dangerous pages restrict it ...04:18
ubotuTo install the Ati/NVidia drivers for your video card, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto04:18
therealnanotubeka2: it /is/ kind of a pain, but it cleans up a lot of crap - and once you use it for the first few days and whitelist your regularly visited sites, it's hardly noticeable04:18
bazhangmatthias same here noscript and adblockplus are nice plugins for firefox on ubuntu04:18
ka2 therealnanotube: try adblock plus for that :)04:18
therealnanotubeka2: got that too, of course :)04:18
ka2no real need for noscript then04:18
Z_o-s-oHey is there anyone else with FireFox always crashing while using flash video like youtube?  I've got the latest flash installed.04:18
neopc was working slowly a while ago , some body on the forum told me to edit the first line of ¨/etc/hosts¨ as ¨ localhost unknown¨     it rectified the problem ,but whenever some application opens i.e. mozilla it modifies the file again>>>04:19
tomvolek_hi, newbie here,  i have setup two Ubuntu hosts on my local home network siting behind a wireless gateway using DHCP.   How can I copy files from one host to the other ?04:19
bazhangmatthias you may also want to check out user agent switcher--it allows firefox to spoof being ie7/vista for some less linux friendly sites04:19
matthiaswell just to make you guys aware there is hope to keep nasty things outside a buit longer .... :)04:19
kernfreakZ_o-s-o; try installing firefox 304:19
ka2neo: mozilla cant edit it04:19
kernfreakand ln the flash plugin04:19
ka2neo: unless you run it as root which you should never do04:19
Z_o-s-okernfreak : Ill try it04:19
AntiUSAhow come everytime I try to adjust the size of my parition it says "The test of the file system with type ext3 in parition #1 of SCSI (0,0,0) (sda) found uncorrected errors." and if I try to contionue it fails?04:19
bazhangmatthias thanks for the recommend04:19
hopelessi need to create a user with uid=500 in ubuntu 7.10 so i can access my fedora partition. i have edited the uid minimum values in /etc/login.defs, etc/gnome-system-tools/users/profiles, and /etc/adduser.conf, and rebooted, and i still cannot create a user with uid=500. what do i do?04:19
therealnanotubetomvolek_: i'd recommend ssh. set up openssh-server on one machine, use your favorite sftp client to transfer files to/from the other machine04:19
matthiasthanks and good bye ...04:20
craigbass1976jeffMASTERflex, Ahh, it was not size, but local files issue.  Weird, I thought that a mounted up nfs share would be considered local as far as nautilus was concerned...04:20
kernfreakZ_o-s-o, once you do, copy the flash plugin into the firefox3/plugins dir04:20
PMantisIs there any way to install mythtv without using MYTHBuntu? On my 7.10 live CD and my server, ther's broken packages when I try to install the server.04:20
neook suggestions?04:20
Ein2015PMantis: use synaptic (or aptitude, apt-get, etc)04:20
ka2neo: pastebin the file04:20
bazhangPMantis: yes but they are less easy than mythbuntu04:21
Ein2015PMantis: from there just install from the repositories, search for mythtv04:21
Z_o-s-okernfreak : Will do, whatre the chances that this fixes the issue?04:21
deniz__i went here (http://cvs.cinelerra.org/docs/split_manual_en/cinelerra_cv_manual_en_21.html#SEC298) to add non takeoffable subtitles to my video using cinelerra and then it brought me here (http://home.gna.org/subtitleeditor/) (the second link has instructions that I think are most proper for the ubuntu irc channel) i was hoping for EASY TO UNDERSTAND instructions04:21
tomvolek_therealnanotube:  what if I just mount one partion form host one to partiton two on host two ?04:21

Toddwhile a friend of mine installing UBUNTU7.04 on his ThinkPad ,It shows the 'cannot access tty',anyone knows Why?04:24
therealnanotubetomvolek_: but what protocol will you use to "mount" the partition? standard partition mounting only works for disks directly attached to the machine. you have to use some kind of a network protocol to access a different computer over the network.04:24
AntiUSAno how do I do that?04:24
bazhangwols_: hi!04:24
arakthorthanks bazhang04:24

workmanPeople i'm running Linux Ubuntu 7.10, how to rename my username (workman@workman-linux:~$) can somebody please tell me i wants to rename workman to bosanac can somebody a ?05:05
kernfreakDevourer, may I ask why you want too?05:05
wols_you alread asked one05:05
ka2!justask | grezer3405:05
ubotugrezer34: Please don't ask to ask a question, ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely answer. :-)05:05
storm-zenworkman, why not just add a new user instead?05:06
storm-zen( renaming can be messier. )05:06
nickrudwols_: long time no see! Just as I'm leaving ...05:06
storm-zenworkman... unless.. you've been using that name for a while?05:06
workmanstorm-zen, i will lost everything :S05:06
wols_nickrud:needed to ask somehing about ubuntu default iptables05:06
neowas dissconnected ......           i have problem wih the /etc/hosts file         .....      sometimes some programs edits the file and pc starts working slowly ,,,earlier somebody on the forum solved my problem by editing the file /etc/hosts first line as ¨ localhost unknown¨ now whenever i open some program the /et/hosts file is modified as ¨ localhost¨05:06
workmanstorm-zen, what name?05:06
nickrudwols_: what default iptables, they're all flushed05:06
storm-zenworkman: Ok.  I see what you mean.05:06
workmani'm using workman but i wants to rename it to bosanac05:06
wols_morons in #windows rally wanted to spout windows was more secur "you can run as non admin!". sure...05:06
ka2neo: i asked you which programs05:07
workmani wants to rename also /home/workman to /home/bosanac05:07
ka2neo: dont run progs as root unless you have to05:07
Devourerkernfreak, because I can only get GTK+ to work on here, so therefore I can only compile GTK+ on here and suppose I want to write something for Windows using GTK+?05:07
wols_workman: create new account, move over all files as root then chown them all to new accountname05:07
grezer34ok, Here it goes, I just installed ISPConfig, seems to be working fine, I am trying to view the index.htm on one of the sites that I created ( IPaddress/web9_username/site ) but I cant seem to get it to work, not sure why ??05:07
kernfreakDevourer, gtk has a windows port05:07
grezer34what am I missing ?05:07
workmanwols_, huh tell me the commands can you?05:07
wols_grezer34: you missed telling us any error05:07
TurtleOfDoomworkman: renaming is easy, but there is a decent chance it will break something you probably want to create a new account05:07
workmani'm newbie05:07
wols_workman: no05:07
storm-zenworkman: Make sure you get all the hidden ones, too.05:08
kernfreakbuilding a cross compiler is frankly without bot intervention, "a bitch"05:08
bazhangwols_: we missed you! ;]05:08
Devourerkernfreak, yes, but in my previous statement I stated I can only get GTK+ to work on here. I've tried on Windows, sucks ballz.05:08

workmani don't see05:09
kernfreakit is possible, but most of the time work arounds are needed to get them to compile05:09
ka2shabbaz: so you can use windows?05:09
TurtleOfDoomi would not reccomend man chown, one of the worst manpages ever05:09

tritiumronartos: investigate the bots in private, please05:41
ronartoscan anyone help installing PloneLDAP in ubuntu server?05:42
ghengisi cant figure out how to get ubuntu 7.10 to use audigy as main soundcard05:42
bazhangthezanke: best bet would be to try the livecd and see how well it runs recognizes your hardware wifi etc05:42
deniz__Ein2015, does it?05:42
Ein2015deniz__: The maximum possible size for a file on a FAT32 volume is 4 GiB minus 1 Byte (232−1 bytes).05:42
jeffMASTERflexghengis: if you have onboard sound, it might be necessary to blacklist the onboard sound driver so that the OS only loads the sound card driver05:43
archmaprsult when I type $PATH /home/archana/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/gnome/bin:/opt/kde3/bin:/usr/lib/jvm/jre/bin:/usr/lib/mit/bin:/usr/lib/mit/sbin05:43
deniz__Ein2015, i made it 3.99 gb then05:43
Ein2015deniz__: or just dont use fat32 ;)05:44
jeffMASTERflexarchmap: that is the system path used to launch executables05:44
nickrudarchmap: wow, that's a long path05:44
ghengisi use the onboard sound for other apps, like teamspeak.  previously, i had ubuntu 6.06 installed (but the audigy was installed before os) and it was all good05:44
archmapwhere do I set the path for the postgres to look in05:44
ghengisi did a fresh install of 7.1005:44
grezer34ok, Here it goes, I just installed ISPConfig, seems to be working fine, I am trying to view the index.htm on one of the sites that I created ( IPaddress/web9_username/site/index.html ) but I cant seem to get it to work, not sure why ?? Any help would be great05:45
ghengisi have the audigy working with totem right now05:45
ghengisbut i  cant find where to set it as default because firefox plays audio from onbaord05:45
Presario Z_o-s-o: i used nolapic and acpi=off in recovery mode and k got a kernal panic.....05:46
jeffMASTERflexghengis: you can probably mess around in System/Preferences/Sound or play around with the volume control applet to switch around sound devices05:46
ghengishehe, thanks for the advice jeff, thats what ive been trying to no avail.  i dont have much on my hd right now, maybe reinstall 7.10? OMG05:46
jeffMASTERflexghengis: try "Default Mixer Tracks" in System/Preferences/Sound05:47
hobbzillaI'm getting ready to format my /home partition for use to store large files MP3's movies, virtual disks (vmware, etc.). I've read `mke2fs -j -m 0 -T largefile4 /dev/<DEV>` is a good choice. Any other suggestions?  Any reason to choose another fs over ext3?05:47

ghengisWTF jeff? howd you do that??? LOL05:47
ghengisits working now05:47

Fingeldammit. Whats up with open office. I write a 8 page essay, and when I print it out in the school comp lab with ms word, its only 6 pages05:49
Z_o-s-oPresario : try one or the other not both05:49
nickrudFingel: formatting differences05:49
hobbzillabazhang: I'm confused. How is "fragmentation" a suggestion or another fs suggestion?05:49
bazhanghobbzilla: ext 3 is the better choice in short05:49
Ein2015Fingel: export to PDF first05:49
Fingelhmm, good idea Ein201505:50
FingelI will try that05:50
jeffMASTERflexFingel: it sucks. what i usually do is save as ODF then use an online converter like media-convert or something to convert it to doc. it's usually more effective than using openoffice05:50
hobbzillabazhang: I was going with ext3 unless I could be convinced otherwise.05:50
bazhanghobbzilla: if you have a shutdown improperly with ext2 there may be worries05:50
=== tunixman_ is now known as theunixman
hobbzillajeffMASTERflex: I have read up quite a bit on the fs choices and thought ext3 was a good overall fit. What would you personally use for a 400GB partition to store movies,mp3's etc.?05:51
nickrudbazhang: he had -j (for journaling) already05:51
m1rhi all05:51
hobbzillabazhang: Right, although I have the pc on an APC I don't think ext2 is for me.05:52
jeffMASTERflexhobbzilla: you can't go wrong with ext3 i think. performance and reliability wise, i prefer it over others. xfs is nice, but does have reliability issues, i keep my mp3's and "videos" on a 300 GB ext3 partition05:52
m1rhow can i reset forgoten user/root passwords ?05:53
iceswordinit 205:53
bazhanghobbzilla: no real reason to go for ext2 unless you have a ssd; like an eeepc or something that has limit file writes etc05:53
hobbzillawhy does ubuntu mount fs by UUID instead of by label?05:54
hobbzillaor device?05:54
bazhanghobbzilla: you can /msg ubotu uuid for info and a link05:54
lakeofteaso what are the differences between ubuntu better than red hat 9.0 ???05:54
nickrud!uuid | hobbzilla05:54
ubotuhobbzilla: To see a list of your devices/partitions and their corresponding UUID's, run this command in a !shell: « sudo blkid » (see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LibAtaForAtaDisks for the rationale behind the transition to UUID)05:54
jeffMASTERflexhobbzilla: just in case an upgrade changes the way the kernel names your devices05:54
lakeofteaexcuse me, what are the differences between ubuntu and red hat 9.005:54
bazhanglakeoftea: this is not really a chat channel join #ubuntu-offtopic if you want to hear why ubuntu is best ;]05:55
hobbzillajeffMASTERflex: how could a kernel upgrade change the label of a disk?05:55
soulburneranyone know how i could go about reinstalling my ethernet card in ubuntu?05:55
jeffMASTERflexhobbzilla: they have done it often the past few kernel releases05:55
soulburnerit was working great then seemed to not work so well, i wanted to try reinstalling it05:56
nickrudhobbzilla: not everyone labels their devices, or would like someone else to choose default labels05:56
jeffMASTERflexhobbzilla: from hda to sda, etc etc05:56
Presario Z_o-s-o: i used nolapic with recovery and it is givving me a text junk which i cant scroll up to see what causes it05:56
soulburnercan't find any type of documentation to lead me in the right path05:56
Presario Z_o-s-o: it should be "native_apic_write_atomic+0x6/0x10"05:57
m1rcan anyone help with reseting forgoten user/root password ?05:57
tritiumm1r: reboot into single-user (recovery) mode, and reset your user's password.  The root account has not password.  Ubuntu uses sudo.05:58

LexdaSomething wrong in Terminal06:10

yo__where it says conifguration, and under that it has all the places to type the dhcp and stuff06:10

Vizdomohh I understand the version naming now , thanks06:11
jeffMASTERflexJakeConnor: there is an ext3 driver available for windows06:12
LexdaAnother question though: I thought Ubuntu was supposed to be free and open and all, so why did I have to accept an agreement thing from Sun?06:12
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about ext3g - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi06:12
jamalfJakeConnor: http://www.fs-driver.org/ works for ext3 too06:12
speeddemon8803oops :/06:12
iceswordJakeConnor, total commander06:12
speeddemon8803thought that was the name..sorry.06:12
Rukusok i think i am going to sleep maybe. also my compiz stopped working. could it be an xorg.conf problem?06:12
iceswordJakeConnor, also google read ext3 in windows06:12
Rukusits always xorg.conf06:12
danbhfiveLexda: java is not free, but ubuntu allows you to install it anyway06:12
iceswordJakeConnor, as far as i know,it is read only06:12
nickrudLexda: that's sun, not ubuntu. It comes from the multiverse (or, restrictive license) section that ubuntu hosts06:12
Vizdomcan I use Ubuntu for commerce? I mean in a commercial organization?06:13

LexdaOk, one more stupid question that I probably simply looked over somewhere online. I just installed the Xubuntu desktop interface thing, and it said to get into it, just switch users and select the XFCE session. I did that, but I'm still in Ubuntu...06:19
Rukusthe xserver doesnt even work in gnome at startup. i had a to create a launcher so i could start metacity when i log into my gnome desktop06:19
bazhangRukus: alt f2 kwin --replace then and videos06:19
Rukusthats what i explained earlier06:19
nickrudLexda: you chose options->session->xfce on the login screen?06:19
Rukusvideo dont work properly in kwin, only when i alt f2 run compiz --replace06:20

Rukusbut i usually know what i am doing06:22
mjbrooksRukus, KDE4 is still technicallly beta... they pushed the release to meet the release plan.... guess they didn't want to follow MS's Vista strategy06:22
Ein2015deniz__: i'm back06:22
LexdaNickrud - It says "Installed: (None), Candidate: 2.50, Version Table: 2.50"06:22
mjbrooksRukus, if you're going to play with xorg.conf make a copy first06:23
nickrudLexda: then you don't have the xubuntu-desktop installed yet.   sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop , or find it in system->admin->synaptic06:23
Rukusi got lots of copies06:23
Rukusmore than i remember which one is the one i need06:23
bazhangRukus: sounds like your xorg.conf is seriously messed up ;]06:23
Rukusi let the ATI installer rewrite it for me even06:23

mjbrooksRukus, oh, you have ATI06:24
slenentinegeekahedron: cat file1 file2 > fullfile06:24
