Talon218??00:29
rskto dump infront of you :P00:30
Talon218lol00:30
rskno idea thou.00:30
Talon218*tear00:30
Talon218do you have any ideas on where to look for an answer00:31
Talon218I search for "hardy java" in the forums and got nothing00:31
RAOFTalon218: That'd be java 1.6, yes?00:33
Talon218i believe so00:33
RAOFEveryone loves stupid proprietary crap!00:33
rskmaybe try icedtea00:33
RAOFSo, the best answer would be to try icedtea, but that's not yet complete.00:33
Talon218i installed netbeans and i saw netbeans install w/ it00:34
Talon218i saw icedtea install w/ it ^00:34
RAOFFailing that, you can export the LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK=1 environment variable, which should mask the symptoms.00:34

cdm10Wow, the Alpha 5 CD is COMPLETELY broken.00:43
Piciin half?00:43
cdm10The installer goes to a manual partition-editor but it has no buttons enabled00:43
cdm10Pici: it doesn't do the normal thing where it asks how you want it partitioned, it just goes straight to the manual one, which, for some reason, is unresponsive00:43
cdm10this is running in a VM with a completely blank, unformatted disk00:43

darrendhi - just upgraded to hardy and appear to have a none-smp kernel on my dual core box.  How do I get smp back again?01:08
credibledarrend: just use the -generic kernel01:09
darrendhmm.. thought that's what I was using.. it's switched to -38601:09
darrendmust be the grub config - changed default?01:09

mEck0Hi! when I try to start netbeans 6 (using hardy alpha 5) I get the following error: " java: xcb_xlib.c:82: xcb_xlib_unlock: Assertion `c->xlib.lock' failed.01:16
mEck0./../platform7/lib/nbexec: line 440: 30031 Aborted                 (core dumped) "01:16
mEck0how can I fix it? I fixed it in some way with help from a kind person here in alpha4, but since update manager upgraded to alpha5, it's not working again ;(01:17
sarah__i installed alpha 4, and just downloaded jockey-common, but wouldnt install because it said python-central was at too old of a version :( help?01:19
sarah__(cant do aptitude update yet; networking drivers broken)01:20
RAOFmEck0: Either use icedtea, which has that hideous bug fixed, or set the LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK environment variable to 1 to mask the symptoms.01:25
mEck0RAOF, how can I set the sentence in the env.variable? whats the name of the file?01:27
RAOFmEck0: Depends on the shell you're using and stuff.  "export LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK=1" in a terminal before running the program you're after (from that same terminal) should work.01:28
RAOFSystem-wide, I think /etc/environment is what you want.01:28
* credible suggests ~/.bashrc01:29
* RAOF points out that ~/.bashrc will only work for running apps from a terminal01:29
RAOFAlso, hi.01:29
credibleoh :/01:29
willis_Hmm.. actually dosent .bashrc get ran by X when it starts up?01:29
credibleit should affect everything indirectly01:30
willis_not sure how to test that heh heh...01:30
willis_I thought ive set env variables in .bashrc that were set for all the X apps befor.01:30
RAOFwillis_: I don't see why .bashrc should be run by X on startup.  There's the xsession stuff, but those would be run with dash, not bash.01:30
mEck0RAOF, do I need to restart something after I added the line in /etc/environment?01:30
RAOFmEck0: A full restart should do it.01:31
willis_RAOF,  right.. But im not sure how to test/prove it one way or the other. :)  launch a shell  with dash i guess.01:31
mEck0ok, brb, thx01:31
jworkman01I just upgraded to hardy and am being shown a crash with the update-manager. When I try to fix it, it wont repair itself. I've used synaptic as well to fix it and still nothing. Any ideas?01:34
Jordan_Ujworkman01, Broken package01:35
=== anon32 is now known as Arwen
jworkman01Jordan: Yes01:35
Jordan_Ujworkman01, Should be fixed in an update sometime soon01:35
jworkman01Jordan: But nothing can be done about it now on my end, right?01:35
Jordan_Ujworkman01, Two packages are trying to overwrite the same file01:35
mEck0RAOF, netbeans 6 starts perfectly now! thx a lot!01:36
Jordan_Ujworkman01, You can force one to overwrite the other's version, but I am not sure the side effects of that01:36
* mEck0 writes down the solution immediately01:36
jworkman01Jordan: Can I do apt-get remove update-manager and install that portion?01:37
jworkman01reinstall rather01:37
Jordan_Ujworkman01, You would not be removing update-manager01:38
willis_!info fuseiso966001:38
jworkman01Jordan: I am trying to do the fix again but get the same thing, returned error code (1)01:39
Jordan_Ujworkman01, Check launchpad, I am sure that someone has filed a bug report already, and likely there is a solution posted there01:40
jworkman01Jordan: Ok thanks!01:40

prasannahey guys, tryin to figure out this bug i keep getting02:30
prasannaE: /var/cache/apt/archives/libxklavier12_3.4-2_i386.deb: trying to overwrite `/usr/share/libxklavier/xfree86.xml', which is also in package libxklavier1102:30
prasannaapparently its a known issue02:30
prasannabut cant seem to find the fix02:31
Raspberryprasanna: read the topic02:31
prasannai hear ya, jus thought someoen might have experience with it since it seems to be an older problem02:32
Raspberryum02:32
Raspberryno02:32
Raspberryit's a new problem02:32
Raspberryas of today02:32
Raspberryand it's an easy fix my forcing the install using dpgk02:32
Raspberrydpkg rather02:32
hischildJordan_U, that would be the alternate02:32
prasannaoh really? googled it thats why, makes sense02:32
prasannahow do i force the install? pretty new to all this02:33
prasannaappreciate any help02:33
Raspberrythen you really shouldn't be running Hardy02:33
prasanna:S02:34
Jordan_Uhischild, I would have tried the LiveCD first, but good luck :)02:34
RAOFprasanna: Basically, you can ignore it for now.  It'll be fixed by an update.02:34
hischildJordan_U, i might try it ... but i knew most of the menu's it gave me ... and yeah, if it fails ... i'll get the live version and give it a shot02:34
Raspberryif you don't know how to resolve dependencies than running an unstable distribution is just going to be a long frustrating process for you and the people who try to help you :)02:34
prasannaactually i've had it installed for a while now, first bug i encountered02:35
Raspberrydo a dpkg --force-overwrite -i /var/cache/apt/archive/libxklavier12_3-4-2_i386.deb02:35
Raspberrythat'll probably do it02:35
prasannahey thanks ROAF, appreciate it02:36
prasanna*RAOF02:36
RAOFprasanna: However, the comment "you probably don't want to be running Hardy" stands.  Problems like this (and worse) *will* come up until the Beta is released, and possibly after.02:37
prasannayup02:38
prasannaand i understand their point of view02:38
prasannaprobably is, u gotta start somewhere, and i was having issues with gutsy as well, more problems actually02:38
Raspberrysame here -- that's why I installed Hardy02:39
RAOFJust as long as you don't need this computer to be working.02:39
prasannayaaa02:39
prasannanot sure if this is a bug, but while i'm typing, pc has logged off a couple of times02:39
RaspberrySo -- nobody else has the issue with X restarting whenever you try running a wine app02:39
prasannai'm guessing i'm pressing a combination of keys thats causing this02:40
RAOFRaspberry: You shouldn't be able to run wine apps at the moment, it's broken :)02:40
hischildJordan_U, so far ... it's actually running fine ... and the installation goes faster (twice as fast) then then 7.10 install did earlier this evening)02:40
hischildJordan_U, i'm at the end of the install (cleaning up part)02:41
RaspberryRAOF: I know -- it has been for 2 weeks -- I installed the new .56 64-bit package :)   It works, but the 3d doesn't :)02:41
prasannaare there pre-installed keys that auto logs off?02:41
prasannathink i hit shift and something, has happened twice today02:41
hischildJordan_U, moment of truth!02:43
willis_dang - getting some majer issues now. windows constantly greying out, lagg when typing and so forth..02:44
willis_wonder what casused that to suddently start.02:44
* Jordan_U does a drum roll02:44
hischildhmm no reboot ... but a fullblown freezeup02:44
RaspberryI get full blown freeze ups too02:45
hischildbut can you login? this is the first bootup after a fresh install02:45
hischildand it freeze before i can even login02:45
Jordan_Uhischild, It's hardly ever "fullblown" frozen with linux, if your caps lock key light isn't flashing there is still hope :)02:45
hischildJordan_U, lol ...02:46
hischildok ok so maybe not fullblown frozen :p02:46
Jordan_Uhischild, Did GDM start?02:46
hischildJordan_U, yes! i was thinking ... shall i type, shall i wait, shall i type, shall i wait ... freezeup!02:47
Jordan_Uhischild, Can you get to a console with ctrl+alt+F1 ?02:47
hischildat freeze?02:47
Jordan_UYes02:47
hischildnope02:47
Raspberrymy freezes are weird02:47
RaspberryI can't use the keyboard anymore02:47
hischildnothing responds, not even caps02:48
Raspberrybut the mouse still moves around, just can't click on anything02:48
hischildRaspberry, you can switch terminals02:48
hischild?02:48
Raspberryno02:48
hischildhmm :(02:48
Raspberrykeyboard doesn't work02:48
Raspberrymouse moves, but the right / left clicks do nothing02:49
RaspberryCTRL+ALT+BKSP does nothing... CTRL+ALT+DEL does nothing02:49
hischildlast time i had that i could switch from terminal to terminal02:49
RaspberryCTRL+ALT+F1 or anything else does nothing02:49
Raspberrypushing the power button does nothing02:49
Raspberryholding the power button powers it off02:49
Jordan_Uhischild, try alt + sysrq + k ( sysrq is usually the same key as print screen )02:50
hischildsec02:50
Raspberryi'll have to try that next time02:50
hischildJordan_U, effect = ? (does nothing that i can see)02:51
hischildmaybe my psu isn't powerfull enough ... so sec while i switch it to my other one ...02:51
Jordan_Uhischild, Should have killed X02:51
hischildJordan_U, didn't :(02:52
Jordan_Uhischild, Try ctrl+alt+sysrq02:54
Jordan_Uctrl+alt+sysrq+k that is :)02:54
DanaGNot ctrl, actually.02:56
DanaGalt-sysrq-k02:56
DanaGIf it's a laptop, you may need to hold FN before pressing sysrq, and then let go of it before hitting 'k'.02:57
DanaGI love having magic sysrq, but I hate having to USE it.02:57
Jordan_UDanaG, I hate having a mac laptop with no sysrq key :)02:58
* DanaG doesn't own any Apple stuff.02:59

hackeron_anyone? - I'm getting the following when I try to install the unichrome module:   xserver-xorg-video-unichrome: Depends: xserver-xorg-core (>= 1:1.1.1) but it is not going to be installed02:59
DanaG(that type) is laptop, desktop, portable media player.02:59
DanaGHeh:  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/Incoming/Hardy/Alternate/Platypus03:01
DanaGI want a platypus on my desktop!03:01
prasannanot sure, but is there away i can disable auto log off?03:03
prasannai mean if i press shift+backspace03:03
RAOFhackeron_: Right.  The unichrome package is broken.03:03
prasannait logs me off, and i've been doing it by accident03:03
RAOFprasanna: That _shouldn't_ happen.  It used to be a bug in Xgl, but that got fixed.03:03
RAOFhackeron_: File a bug.  It's built against the wrong version of the X server.03:04
hischildDanaG, it's a desktop system that i'm having trouble on03:04
prasannareally03:04
prasannahmmmm03:04
prasannacause i've actually tested it just now03:04
prasannaand it did it again03:04
hischildJordan_U, next attempt ... hooked up a more powerfull psu which can handle this box easily ...03:05
hischildfailed :(03:06
hischild_anything_ any1 can think of to fix a gdm crashing for no apparent reason?03:07
DanaGI'm getting Xorg crashes when unmimizing Firefox with certain pages open.03:08
Jordan_Uhischild, Try disabling gdm like you did with gutsy, see if it still freezes / reboots03:08
hischildaight03:09
hischildsec03:09
DanaGExample: this page.03:10
DanaGhttp://www.facilities.calpoly.edu/campusprojects/EngIV_Web_Cam.htm03:10
DanaGIt has some Java applet.03:10
Jordan_UDanaG, Page isn't loading for me03:12
DanaGHmm.03:12
DanaGOh, and the crash only SOMEtimes happens.03:12
hischildJordan_U, this is a new one.... i can see the cursor blink ... yet i can't type :S03:13
Jordan_Uhischild, Try ctrl+alt+F103:13
hischildunresponsive03:13
hackeron_RAOF: ok, filed, thanks03:13
Jordan_Uhischild, Try threatening your computer03:13
hischildthinks i'm bluffing :(03:14
hischildamazing ... tech support with humor .... value: priceless03:14
hischildi got like 5 - 10 seconds before it freezes03:16
hackeron_hischild: definitely not a hardware problem? - tried memtest for a couple of hours?03:18
DanaGOdd, hard lock with black screen when I closed my lid.03:18
hischildhackeron_, i'm fairly sure that it isn't ... i've been running windows on it for like 1,5 weeks without reboot ... and games run great without any problem ...03:18
Jordan_Uhischild, Try pinging it to see if it is still somewhat alive, if it is try installing ssh in recovery mode then ssh in to be hopefully able to troubleshoot after the freeze03:20
hischildi'll try ...03:20
hackeron_hischild: sorry, I missed the beginning of the problem, what do you have to do to reproduce the problem?03:20
hischildhackeron_, the easiest thing ever: power it on03:21
hackeron_hischild: ok, so ubuntu boots up, you see the login and it freezes?03:21
hischildyup03:21
hackeron_try booting as a single user mode and running startx - see if it happens then too03:21
Jordan_Uhackeron_, Even with GDM disabled, so it's not likely an X problem03:21
hackeron_Jordan_U: ah, hmm03:22
hackeron_hischild: with gdm disabled, anything in the console before it locks up?03:22
hischildhackeron_, i have about 5 - 10 seconds before it locks up03:22
hischildi can login, type 2 commands ... lock up03:22
hischildif i'm lucky ...03:23
DanaGYou could chmod -x /etc/init.d/gdm to make it not start.03:23
hackeron_type tail -f /var/log/syslog :)03:23
hischildill try03:23
hackeron_and have you tried as single user too?03:23
Jordan_UDanaG, Already tried, except I had him rename /etc/init.d/gdm03:23
hischilddarn .... was so close :p03:24
hackeron_lol03:24
hischildhackeron_, yes ... which doesn't lock up03:24
hackeron_well, that's good news03:24
hackeron_now try starting hal :)03:24
hischildhackeron_, at least, not within the first like 5 minutes03:24
P2502livecd boot menu and grub boot menu useing legacy usb driver it seems, if i have no legacy usb support or disable it in bios, my keyboard stop work03:25
hackeron_hischild: what motherboard/chipset? - I heard some onboard network cards cause lockups03:25
hischildhackeron_, alright, i'm in single user thingy03:25
hackeron_hischild: maybe try disabling the network adaptor in bios?03:25
hischildhackeron_, uhm ... asus a8r mvp03:25
hischilddisabled just about everything (inc onboard sound and network)03:25
Jordan_Uhischild, hackeron_ That would make sense since single user mode works03:25
hischildi'm assuming that i have to select drop to root shell prompt when asked03:26
hackeron_yes03:26
hischildand no lock up so far03:26
hackeron_from there, try /etc/init.d/hal start03:27
hackeron_see if that makes it lock up03:27
Jordan_Uhischild, See if it locks up when you do "invokerc.d networking start"03:27
hischildwait one at a time :p03:27
hischildhal won't start due to dbus not being started03:27
Jordan_Umake that invoke-rc.d ( with a dash )03:27
hischildand what good will networking do me if i don't have a network that it can check on?03:28
hackeron_hischild: if it's a driver issue, you'll be able to reproduce the lockup :)03:28
hischildaaaaah03:28
hischild*tries*03:28
hischildno lockup, just a warning about ignoring unknown interface eth0=eth003:29
hackeron_so far so good03:29
hackeron_do you have any USB devices plugged in?03:29
DanaGsudo dhclient eth0 to bring it up.03:29
hischildyes, my keyboard, though i also have a ps2 keyboard hooked up (wanted to see if that made a difference)03:30
hischildDanaG, wouldn't do much good, i disabled it in bios03:30
hackeron_hmm, try startx03:31
hischildok03:31
hischildrunning as privileged user --> continue?03:31
hackeron_no lock up?03:31
hischildtook twice as long ... but locked03:31
hackeron_ok, so it seems to lock when you started x?03:32
hischildyes03:32
hackeron_sounds like display drivers03:32
hackeron_what graphics card?03:32
hischildnvidia geforce 8600 GT03:32
hackeron_in single user mode, with networking enabled03:32
hackeron_run apt-get install nvidia-glx03:32
hischildok03:32
hischildsec03:32
hackeron_if you haven't already :)03:33
hischildnope, it's a clean system, freshly installed03:33

hischildhackeron_, any chance there's a diff way? cuz it's almost empty o.O03:36

hackeron_hischild: lol, hmmm, probably, but I can't remember it - do you have section device?03:37
hischildhackeron_, yes ... just added it there03:37

hackeron_hischild: yeah, try it03:38
prasannathe 'shift+backspace' = auto log off03:38
hischildframebuffer y/n03:38
hackeron_hischild: but in hardy it doesn't really ask you many questions03:38
hackeron_hischild: framebuffer no03:38
RAOFprasanna: I don't know.  I don't know what's causing it, so I can't tell you how to fix it.03:39
hischildgood point ....03:39
Jordan_Uhackeron_, hischild That's because in hardy it doesn't really make many decisions :)03:39
prasannak03:39
prasannaback to google, tried a few things, none seem to work03:39
hischildhmm ... :( no screens error yeah03:39
hischildooh wait03:39
Jordan_Uprasanna, Are you using XGL?03:39
prasannano03:39
hischild*count to 20*03:40
hackeron_Jordan_U: hmmm, I find the opposite - it makes practically all decisions and so far they have been wrong, lol03:40
Jordan_Uprasanna, Can you pastebin the output from "glxinfo" ?03:40
prasannak03:40
prasannaoh sorry yea i am using XGL03:40
Jordan_Uhackeron_, No, it leaves the xorg.conf mostly empty and leaves the decision making to X.org03:40
hischildlockup <3 but it might have overwritten it to not use nvidia drivers03:40
hackeron_hischild: any luck?03:40
DanaGxorg log show anything interesting?03:41
hischildi'm always having luck :p03:41
Jordan_Uprasanna, There are many tutorials on how to turn off the shift + backspace quitting XGL03:41
prasannayea ive tried a few, let me keep trying03:42
prasannai'll be back if i cant fix it03:42
hackeron_hischild: so.. no lockup?03:42
hischildhackeron_, without nvidia ... it locks up03:42
hischildand with nvidia, it just won't start03:42
hackeron_hischild: lol03:42

hackeron_hischild: before the no screens found, does it say anything about the nvidia kernel module?03:42
nemo... this seems a little excessive03:42
nemofor one thing, my plugins seem to be ending up in different directories03:43
nemooften the wrong one03:43
hackeron_hischild: oh wait, I know03:43
hischildhackeron_,  no, i'll take a look in the log03:43
nemowhy is ubuntu moving towards 7 different Gecko plugin directories, and are some of these junk and does anyone know how to get this under control?03:43
hischildhmm?03:43
hackeron_hischild: hardy is broken, lol - I forget -- apt-get install nvidia-glx-new-dev03:43
hischildhahahahahaha03:43

hackeronhi, sorry back, stupid bulldog03:48
macogwhah i see it03:48
hischildhackeron, haha np :p wb03:48
macogwuse sound to notify of event03:48
hackeronhischild: any luck?03:48
macogwit says "in event of an error"03:48
hischildhackeron, i installed nvidia-glx-new-dev ... and now doing ya attempt03:48
macogwclosing the lid is not an error!03:48
hischildyet no luck :(03:48
hackeronhischild: hmm, is the nvidia kernel module loaded? -- check lsmod03:49
hischildaight sec03:49
hackeronhischild: and now that your device driver is set to nvidia - also try booting into multiuser mode03:49
hackeron(i.e. normal mode)03:49
hischildhackeron, multi user mode fails ... (just tried)03:50
hischildand ... lsmod should show nvidia in the list?03:50
hackeronyeah03:50
hischildisn't there03:50
hackeronwell, if it's loaded03:50
hackeronif not, load it :)03:50
hackeronmodprobe nvidia03:50
hackeronand if that's not found03:50
CarlFK"  onboard: Depends: python-virtkey (>= 0.50) but 0.42 is to be installed"  anyone here want details before I nuke the logs?03:50

hischild"Not loading nvidia-new module; not used in /etc/X11/xorg.conf03:51
Jordan_Uhischild, Then you need to modify your xorg.conf :)03:51
hischildJordan_U, i'm already doin that ...03:51
hackeronhmm, I just use driver "nvidia" here03:51
hischildhackeron, it got moved out again :(03:52
hackeronoh, lol03:52
hischildso ... put tha tback in ... modprobe'd ...03:52
hackerondpkg-reconfigure is weird in hardy03:52
hischildloaded!03:52
hackeronwith xserver-xorg anyway03:52
hischildhackeron, yeah :( *refuses to use it anymore*03:52
hackeronX started?03:52
* DanaG uses a manual xorg.conf.03:53
hischildlogo!03:53
Jordan_Uhackeron, It's just that they are going for as minimal an xorg.conf as possible, letting X itelf deal with the rest03:53
hackeronlol03:53
DanaGwww.csc.calpoly.edu/~dgoyette/xorg.conf03:53
DanaGLots of nifty stuff for touchpad.03:53
hischildooooh i lol'd ... once i click continue it drops back to console03:53
hischildbut no freeze! (so far)03:53
hischildand just when i say that ... =,= it freezes03:53
hackeronlol, yeah, it does that03:53
hackeronbleh, lol, that sucks03:53
RAOFUntil synaptics is modified to not need SHMConfig (and nouveau gets loaded by default), manual xorg for me too.03:53
hackeronok, so it's not X03:53
hackeronhmm, so is it a kernel panic?03:54
hackeronsomeone suggested you try to ping the machine - have you tried that?03:54
hischildit sounds like my cpu is spiking now ... my cooler is working overtime once it freezes03:54
hischildno response03:54
hischild100% loss03:54
hackeronhmm, that is very weird, the motherboard seems fully supported03:54
Jordan_Uhischild, hackeron But that's with networking currently disabled right?03:54
hischildJordan_U, i think i enabled it03:55
hischildi'll check :-)03:55
Jordan_Uhischild, Make sure you can ping it before the freeze03:55
hackeronhischild: have you tried the typical acpi=off noapic commands in grub?03:55
hischildyes i have without luck03:56
hackeronwhat kernel?03:56
hackerongeneric or i38603:56
hischildwhich one comes installed normally?03:56
hischildgeneric03:57
hackerondonno, lol - I've been dist-upgrading since dapper03:57
hackeronhischild: try i386 - generic doesn't work for me either03:57
hischildh2install?03:57
hackeronwho?03:57
hischildhow to install :p03:57
hackeronapt-get install linux-image-2.6.24-8-386 linux-restricted-modules-2.6.24-8-38603:58
Jordan_UBRB03:58
hackeronthere's ubuntu-modules and some other stuff - but I only have those 2 installed03:58
hischildhackeron, i can't find the second module04:00
hackeronhischild: hmmmm? - did you enable universe and multiverse in sources.list?04:00
hischildlet me see04:00
hischildnope :-) did that now04:01
hischildhackeron, seems there's only the 2.6.24-10-386 one and the generic for the 2.6.24-804:02
hackeronhmmmmm, maybe it changed in the last hour, lol04:02
hischildlol04:02
hischildso grab the -10 kernel?04:02
hackeronyeah04:02
hackerongrab the latest 386 one04:02
hischildok, dl'ing04:03
Jordan_Uhischild, hackeron Why 386 ?04:03
hackeronJordan_U: for me on athlon64 generic hangs on boot04:04
hischildaight attempt 2 at running x ...04:05
hischildnvidia is loaded04:05
hackeronnew kernel?04:05
hischildofcourse, after a reboot04:05
RAOFhackeron: At any point in particular?  -generic should totally work.04:05
hischildnope ... this time instead of a freeze it dies04:05
hackeronRAOF: yes, just after grub - I see04:06
hackeronsorry, stupid enter key, ol04:06
hackeronI see 4 lines of text04:06
hackeronjust basically loading kernel, etc04:06
hackeronand it hangs04:06
hackerondoesn't even get to mounting the FS04:06
hischildmine gets a little further then that ... yet so far :( still go gnome04:07
RAOFhackeron: Hm... Is it anything like bug #184712?04:07
hackeronno luck with the 386 kernel?04:07
ubotuLaunchpad bug 184712 in linux "[regression] Asus F3Jm fails to work correctly without acpi=off" [Medium,Invalid] https://launchpad.net/bugs/18471204:07
hischildhackeron, nope ...04:07
hischildi'll try the acpi=off04:08
hackeronRAOF: donno, I just switched to the 386 kernel, lol04:08
hackeronRAOF: I happened to have it installed from the dapper days04:08
Jordan_Uhischild, It would be VERY useful to be able to examine the system via ssh after the "crash", have you confirmed that it does respond to pings before the crash but not after?04:08
hischildyes that is confirmed04:09
hackeronhischild: probably an unhelpful suggestion, but try with an IDE instead of a SATA hard drive, lol04:10
hischildhackeron, lol'd ... don't have one here :(04:10
hischildhmm ... wait it's still running?04:10
DanaGdagblasted Xorg died when I unminimized Firefox.04:10
hischilduhm04:12
hischildwtf04:12
hackeronhischild: works with acpi=off?04:12
hischildyeah o.O04:12
hischildso far it does04:12
hackeronhischild: lol, I thought you said you tried that!04:12
hischildi did!04:12
hackeronlol, then its the 386 kernel04:12
hischildJordan_U said that, along with apci or sth like that ...04:12
hischildor the combi ;-)04:13
hackeroninstall enemy territory and enjoy your hardy04:13
hischildhahaha <304:13
hischildoh i will04:13
hischildbut i'll be more then likely coming back with trouble04:13
hackeronlol, probably, hardy is so broken right now04:13
hischildhahahaha04:14
Raspberryso so broken04:14
hischildepic04:14
hischildbut it just works! <3 hugs for all !04:14
* hischild hugs all04:14
hackeronright, it's after 4am, I'm going to sleep04:15
hackeronnight night everyone04:15
hischildhaha sounds like a plan :p i'm goin to enjoy this and keep on goin through the night (it's only 5 am here)04:15
hischildnight04:15
DanaGI figured out a way to reliably crash Xorg.04:18
hischildDanaG, tell me04:19
MFenwhat's the main page for the heron package repository?04:19
RAOFDanaG: Always a good thing to have :)04:19
hischildi'm curious ... :p04:19
DanaGGo to the following page, then open a new tab and switch to it.  Minimize firefox, wait a few seconds, then unmimnimize firefox.04:19
DanaGhttp://www.facilities.calpoly.edu/campusprojects/EngIV_Web_Cam.htm04:19
MFeni need to download python2.5 directly, because some of my files went missing somehow04:19
MFen(and removing it and reinstalling it is out of the question for obvious reasons)04:20
Jordan_UDanaG, Which JVM?04:20
DanaGIcedTea, I think.04:20
RAOFMFen: aptitude reinstall python2.5 doesn't do what you want?04:20
MFeni didn't know there was a reinstall04:21
RAOF:)04:21
RAOFTools are awesome!04:21
hischildsetting time is broken? :P04:21
DanaGOh yeah, and I'm using compiz-fusion with nvidia.04:21
MFenRAOF: hmm. no, apparently it doesn't04:22
MFenapt-file search tells me that _bsddb.so is in python2.504:22
cwillu!wine04:22
ubotuWINE is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs on GNU/Linux. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine for more information, and see !AppDB for application compatibility.04:22
MFenand i have python2.5 installed04:22
MFenbut _bsddb.so is not present04:22
cwillu!info wine04:22
ubotuwine (source: wine): Microsoft Windows Compatibility Layer (Binary Emulator and Library). In component universe, is optional. Version 0.9.55-0ubuntu1 (hardy), package size 34871 kB, installed size 108000 kB04:22
MFenand reinstalling python2.5 did not bring it back.04:22
RAOFcwillu: Yes, it's still broken.04:22
cwilluthx :p04:22
RAOFYou still want to have the winehq gutsy repository enabled, and have "aptitude forbid-version wine=0.9.55-0ubuntu1" set.04:23
MFenmaybe i will apt-file update.  has it been moved into another package? foolish, if so. attempts to separate python from its stdlib will always annoy us python users.04:23
cwilluRAOF, I've just got the deb pinned04:23
cwillubut ya, thansk04:24
RAOFforbid-version is probably better; once a new (presumably working) package is uploaded, you automatically update :)04:24
RAOFcwillu: What's your actual problem?  _bsddb.so is in python2.504:24
MFenRAOF: are you talking to me?04:24
DanaGupdate-manager ignores aptitude's holds!04:24
cwilluRAOF, automatically, eh?  there's something that's not gonna happen until hardy goes stable :p04:25
MFenRAOF: "import bsddb" fails, which should never happen.04:25
RAOFMFen: Not here it doesn't :)04:25
RAOFDanaG: That's awkward.  I only use aptitude, so it doesn't affect me :/04:25
MFenRAOF: well, maybe aptitude reinstall *really doesn't* work04:25
MFenRAOF: so, i still need to know where to download the deb. :)04:26
RAOFMFen: what does "dpkg -S bsddb.so" give for you?04:26
MFenRAOF: python2.404:27
MFenonly04:27
RAOFAnd you _definitely_ have python2.5 installed?  aptitude reinstall python2.5 won't do anything if you don't have the python2.5 package installed already.04:27
hischildwhy can't i use tabcompletion? :(04:28
Jordan_UDanaG, That applet won't display with Iced Tea for me04:28
MFenRAOF: i definitely have it installed, yes04:29
MFenmoreover, aptitude reinstall very definitely seems to be reinstalling it04:29
MFenbut the end result is the same, no _bsddb.so04:29
RAOFMFen: So downloading the deb manually is unlikely to do anything :)04:29
RAOFYou're up to date?04:29
RAOFI mean, your apt lists are up to date?04:30
MFenwould that matter? it's been in python since like 1990 :)04:30
MFeni have automatic updates on04:30
MFenso unless it was removed in the last update (and i don't recall python being upgraded) it should stil be there04:30
MFenit's entirely possible i accidentally removed it, but aptitude doesn't want to put it back04:30
RAOFMFen: I'd matter if there was a bug in the packaging which prevented bsddb.so from being built for one revision, and a fix has been pushed out :)04:30
DanaGOdd, perhaps java isn't really there.04:31
DanaGdpkg --force-depends --purge is a last-resort way to really purge stuff like that Python.  However, it can also severely break stuff!04:31
MFenwell, i just downloaded the newest deb04:33
RAOFpackages.ubuntu.com thinks that _bsdddb.so lives in python2.5 :)04:34
MFenwell, it does.04:34
MFenapt-file agrees04:34
MFenok, upgrading my python2.5, my python2.5-minimal and installing libdb4.2 fixed it04:35
MFeni think there may actually have been a packaging error, and i somehow caught it in the nuts04:36
hischildouch ... that's gotta hurt04:38
Jordan_Uhischild, Have you installed ssh yet?04:39
hischildJordan_U, no ... was doin updates04:40
Jordan_Uhischild, That's a good idea :)04:40
hischildthey don't call em udpates for a reason now do they ;-) and considering it takes a blink of an eye compared to windows ...04:41
hischildi must say ... i do get to know my system rather well this way :p04:42
=== tdoggette is now known as tdoggette_away
nemosooo, anyone know why ubuntu has 7 different gecko plugin directories?04:46
cwilluhistorically, plugin authors have tended to hardcode paths04:47
cwilluso in order for the java installer, the flash installer, etc to all work, those paths still need to be supported04:47
P2502kubuntu-kde4 alpha is out04:48
P2502ho its on kubuntu.org already04:55
nemocwillu: well, my problem was that, for example, the java plugin wasn't being found, 'cause it wasn't in the "right" path04:55
nemocwillu: so clearly not all of them are being searched04:56
nemoI ended up moving it to the path of the plugins that were showing up in about:plugins - but that kind of thing disturbs me04:56
nemodon't like moving about system managed symlinks04:56
wastrelany thinkpad users having trouble with their integrated card reader?04:57
nemocwillu: besides. even if the paths are hardcoded, why not symlink them all to one directory?04:57
nemoonly the 2 versioned ones are symlinks on my system04:57
nemo/usr/lib/firefox-3.0b3/plugins -> /usr/lib/xulrunner-addons/04:57
nemo /usr/lib/firefox-3.0b3/plugins -> /usr/lib/xulrunner-addons/04:57
nemo /usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9b3/plugins -> ../xulrunner-addons/plugins04:57
hischildoooooohhhh lovely ... no reboot needed after updates ... (and yes Jordan_U, installed ssh :-))04:57
P2502 hischild: i always reboot04:58
P2502was having some problems if not reboot04:58
hischildP2502, why? if you don't have to ... :-)04:58
hischildi prefer to keep my box running :p after all the trouble it costs to get it running04:59
P2502well i once updated firefox while it was running and it started to act strange04:59
cwilluwhich makes me wonder why you'd want to run an unstable version :p04:59
nemohischild: my gentoo box I just rebooted last week - after my aborted attempt to switch to evil lying Verizon04:59
hischildcwillu, that's easy ... there's nothing more fun then to keep an unstable system running :-)05:00
nemohischild: before that it had had almost 7 months of uptime before my last kernel update05:00
hischildnemo, nice :-)05:00
P2502i turn off my pc every night05:00
cwillubah, that's what suspend is for05:01
DanaGFor me, suspend works only 2/3 of the time, or so.05:01
P2502and reboot many times a day if i made some changes to cnofiguration05:01
DanaGIt works well enough to use, but I always make sure to save my work first anyway.05:01
P2502suspend to ram?05:01
DanaGYeah.05:02
hischildthere we go ... acpi=off edited into grub05:02
P2502my connections dosnt restore after suspend05:03
nemocwillu: not going to suspend the machine. too many things running on it...05:03
nemois basically a server. even if just my server.05:03
* cwillu was talking about P2502 05:05
DanaGsuspend + iwl3945 == ouch.05:05
DanaGsuspend + pidgin also == ouch.05:05
cwilluoooo, gittorrent05:09
hischild?05:11
cwilluhttp://gittorrent.utsl.gen.nz/rfc.html05:12
DanaGBanana-Splittorrent05:13
hischildaaaah sounds nice05:15
hischildoh btw ... small question: what's better ... to compile from source or a .deb?05:15
P2502ubuntu is not gentoo :)05:16
cwilluprobably depends on the package05:16
cwilluI run git from source, as I haven't found a good repository that keeps up to date with their releases yet05:16
RAOFhischild: It depends on what you mean by "better", really.05:16
hischildhmm05:16
hischildwell not all packages are already available for hardy ... so can i just take the ones from for example gutsy?05:17
Raspberryyou can take them from wherever you want -- they'll all work the same :P05:18
RAOFEverything for Gutsy should be available for Hardy, unless it's been deliberately removed.  What are you looking at in particular?05:18
hischildi'd like to have gfire back ... but i'll have to compile that one anyway ... wine ofcourse (but i'm already compiling that one)05:19
RAOFI wouldn't bother compililng wine; it's huge.05:19
DanaGgfire?05:19
hischildi know05:19
hischildxfire for pidgin05:19
RAOFThe gutsy winehq packages work just fine, until the Ubuntu ones are fixed.05:19
DanaGAah.  None of my best friends use xfire, anyway.05:20
hischildhmm i'll add those then :-) tnx05:20
Raspberryso the gutsy packages work?05:22
Raspberryfor wine05:23
RAOFYes.05:23
Raspberrybecause they all seem to cause my system to restart X05:23
Raspberrywhich is the reason that I moved from gutsy to hardy05:24
hischildRAOF, i get a segmentation fault on winecfg :(05:24
RAOFhischild: With the winehq packages?05:24
hischildyush05:24
hischildfreshly installed05:24
RAOFhischild: Note that just adding the repository & aptitude install wine-ing will result in the hardy package (which has a higher version number) being installed.05:25
hischildo.O05:25
hischildyeah ... sure ... so ... instead ... i should eehm?05:25
P2502http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/archive/ubuntu/gutsy/wine_0.9.55~winehq0~ubuntu~7.10-1_i386.deb05:26
P2502hischild:05:26
hischildwait ... the version number of hardy is higher then the ones from gutsy?05:26
RAOFhischild: So, you "aptitude install wine=0.9.55~winehq0~ubuntu~7.10-1" to forcibly get the winehq version.05:26
hischildbut the version number wine gives me is wine-0.9.5505:26
P2502Raspberry: it seems you have another problem with wine from what we have, it is just 0.9.55 version in hardy repo not work, it segfaults, over versions works05:27
Raspberrymy hardy version segfaults :)05:27
RAOFhischild: Then you "aptitude forbid-version wine=0.9.55-0ubuntu1" to make sure that aptitude doesn't try to upgrade to the current, broken hardy version.05:27
hischildmkay :-)05:27
Raspberrydirect rendering works05:28
Raspberryso I can't figure out why OpenGL wine apps don't work at all05:28
P2502RAOF: dont need to mess with gutsy repos, he may just download deb from link above05:28
RAOFP2502: Which will get upgraded to the Hardy version next time he runs aptitude upgrade :)05:28
Raspberryhow can I determine what's causing the problem -- whne I tried to compile Wine 0.9.56 it told me that it couldn't find OpenGL or Direct3d libraries and that neither would be available05:30
SlicerDicerhas anybody noticed that firefox runs terrible?05:31
SlicerDicerI get horrid scrolling... it will just freeze then jump and freeze and jump05:31
SlicerDicermakes me almost sick05:31
P2502SlicerDicer: yeah it was a same with 2 version for me, maybe turning of disk caching will fix it...05:32
SlicerDicerclicking between konversation and firefox is also lagged... I click to konversation BAM its there firefox takes about 5 seconds to render that its actually there05:32
SlicerDicerwow thats horrible lol I just did a test... I can scroll my wheel on my mouse05:34
SlicerDicerand release my hand and watch it move up-down-up-down etc not touching anything05:34
hischildSlicerDicer, that's gotta look funny (and be very annoying) ... but no ... at least one problem i don't have05:35
SlicerDiceryeah it is very very annoying05:35
SlicerDicerI cant read sites as I scroll whew there... ohh wait no i am not got to scroll back up down up down etc05:35
P2502SlicerDicer: i also dont like when page layout is changing during load, if page have images (i guess areas for images should be pre-made)05:35
SlicerDicerfirefox 3 seems to be a bit of a step back imo05:36
budmangHey what do I apt-get install for the desktop enchancedments in the administration menu?05:36
SlicerDicerI disabled that stupid url bar thing05:36
SlicerDicerdrove me batty05:36
P2502SlicerDicer: well it should not be step back, at least they tried to implement ZOOM, which is was in opera for years05:38
P2502which involves rework of engine05:38
P2502lets call it beta05:39
SlicerDicerhaha05:39
* DanaG has keys get stuck.05:39
SlicerDicerI understand there is issues with beta no doubt about it05:39
Raspberrywell I'm going to try and run something in Wine ... we'll see what happens05:40
RaspberryI have compiz installed05:40
SlicerDicerbut P2502 some of the actual changes that I have seen I am kinda frustrated with.. like having to have a addon to switch the URL bar back to firefox 2 style05:40
Raspberrybut my desktop effects are set to None05:41
Raspberrywould that be effecting it/05:41
SlicerDicerwhat is it doing?05:41
RaspberryX restarts when I try and run an OpenGL Wine applicatin05:41
SlicerDicernice05:41
RaspberryI get kicked out to the gdm login screen05:41
Raspberryit doesn't matter whether the app is run full screen or windowed05:42
SlicerDicererrm try running something else?05:42
Raspberryif I run an installer or an application that doesn't call any 3d libraries it's fine05:42
SlicerDicerare you running wine builds or the ubuntu repos?05:42
Raspberryexample ... World of Warcraft ... installs fine -- starting WoW itself restarts X05:42
RaspberryPhotoshop works fine05:42
RaspberryI've tried the Ubuntu Repos ... but 0.9.55 segfaults05:43
Raspberryso I tried a 0.9.56 that somebody compiled and that restarts05:43
SlicerDicerso your using the wine builds?05:43
RAOFRaspberry: That's going to be a problem with your 3d drivers.05:43

* SlicerDicer runs away05:45
Raspberryoh -- and I can play World of Warcraft fine using CrossOver instead of the "free" wine05:46
RAOFRight.  So _this_ suggests that it may be a wine problem.05:46
RAOFAlthough it's really an X problem.  _Nothing_ should kill X.05:46
P2502or a way crossover interact with driver05:47
SlicerDicerRAOF: errrm05:47
SlicerDicerRAOF: are you insane?05:47
SlicerDicerI have seen X die so many times lol05:47
RAOFSlicerDicer: You've seen a bunch of bugs in X, yes.  My statement stands :P05:47
SlicerDicerLOL ok point taken but thats a really crazy way to look at it05:48
Raspberryok I installed TuxRacer05:48

RaspberryIn WoW I get over 20fps in Windows ... I can play Civ4 fine in Vista and HOMM5 plays alright at 800x60005:52

ethana3Ok, so I'm trying to virtualize XP in qemu on a C2D under Hardy..05:59
ethana3..I think I have to go into the bios, set it on, and pull out the battery and power for 8 seconds..05:59
ethana3forgot about that ;)06:00

Raspberryok I'm trying to discover the entire human genome with my laptop ... it seems slow.  i want it fast.  i formatted the hard drive, but that didn't fix it.  I added a bigger hard drive and made the screen brighter, but it seems to go the same speed06:00
Raspberryi even tried plugging it into an external display06:01
bazhangP2502: heh true ;]06:01
P2502what bigger hard drive and screen brightness to do with speed?06:01
CarlFKP2502: it will seam better06:02
RaspberryI even waxed the case06:02
CarlFKnotice it isnt slow, it just seems slow06:02
Raspberryi tried putting it in the freezer because my friend said computers run better when they're cooler06:02
Raspberryhe thought it might have been overheating06:02
CarlFKbigger HD = newer, newer are often faster.  it all makes perfect sense06:03
P2502CarlFK: not exactly06:03
Raspberryyeah it's one of these SSD things it cost $200006:03
RAOFBigger HD = faster, because it's the same size :)06:03
* DanaG has a Hitachi 7k200-200.06:03
RAOFPhysical size, I mean.06:03
P2502lol@perfect sense06:04
CarlFKnow you are catching on06:04
Raspberryi put speed holes in my first one, but the guy at the store I should do that to this one because they wouldn't honor the warranty twice06:06
Raspberryshouldn't do that to this one, i mean06:06
* RAOF thinks Raspberry is just being silly, now.06:07
CarlFKhardy login pref dialog is too big for 800x600 - should that be bugged?06:07
RAOFCarlFK: Probably, if it isn't already.06:08
Raspberrythe only thing I'm silly about is trying to fix this stupid 3d problem06:10
RAOFRaspberry: "Speed holes"?06:10

[Hardy]TuTUXGCarlFK, tracker, the search app06:37
CarlFKis there some way to disable it?06:38
[Hardy]TuTUXGCarlFK, uninstall it?06:38
P2502i started rsync, it says it downloading file, but file is not created?06:38
hischildmost programs can be disabled yet i found out a very helpfull feature from vista lately06:38
[Hardy]TuTUXGCarlFK, or edit its config file, under ~/.tracker06:38
hischilddid you notice, that whenever a program crashes, it gives you that lovely hint "If you cannot solve the problem with this program, you can solve it by removing this program"06:39
CarlFKawesome.  I can do that as part of the install process06:39
[Hardy]TuTUXGCarlFK, if u gonna remove tracker, it may ask u to remove ubuntu-desktop, which may bring some trouble later06:40
P2502haha06:40
hischild[Hardy]TuTUXG, you bring that so  .. gently ... 'may bring "some" trouble later'06:41
CarlFKremoving it didn't stop the current process...06:41
P2502actually this thing have interface to disable itself, but it not work06:41
[Hardy]TuTUXGsome troubles06:41
[Hardy]TuTUXGCarlFK, kill it06:41
[Hardy]TuTUXGCarlFK, it's in the memory06:42
[Hardy]TuTUXGP2502, i thought the frontend got fixed?06:42
[Hardy]TuTUXGmaybe not06:42
P2502it seems not06:42
bazhangubuntu-desktop is just a metapackage should be okay to remove06:42
SebastianIs http://phpfi.com/299311 a known issue?06:43

DanaGBlink.  Blink.  Blink.  Blink.06:43
DanaGon and on and on.06:43
[Hardy]TuTUXGSebastian, i thought that one got fixed06:44
DanaGHmm, HP has an accelerometer in some notebooks, too.06:45
[Hardy]TuTUXGactually if u edit tracker's config file properly, it wont use so much res06:45
SebastianLooks like it's not fixed. At least not for me.06:45
RaspberryI guess the problem with WINE on AMD64 is that there are libraries that need to be symlinked from /usr/lib32... anybody else had to do this on amd64?06:46
RaspberryI should run 32-bit ... except that I actually like the extra performance since I do have 4gb of ram and do a lot of app development on this machine06:46
P2502Raspberry: why you dont want to use deb?06:46
DanaGhere's the device ID for the mobile data protection thingy:   http://www.google.com/search?q=HPQ0004+linux06:47
[Hardy]TuTUXGP2502, the deb is broken afaik06:47
RAOF[Hardy]TuTUXG: Only the Hardy one.  The one from winehq works fine.06:48
[Hardy]TuTUXGah06:48
RaspberryP2502: because the amd64 hardy deb is broken ... segfault... and the WineHQ amd64 deb for 0.9.55 doesn't work -- it just restarts X when you try to run an application that wants to use OpenGL or Direct3d06:48
DanaGI'd love to see that patch in the Ubuntu kernel.06:49
CarlFKtracker.cfg - where is run=No ?06:49

RaspberryI live just a few miles from Codeweavers' office -- I might have to stop down there with my laptop and nag Robert :P06:55
RAOFDanaG: Or you could just uninstall tracker, of course.06:56
DanaGThis is HP's thing, though.06:56

Raspberryit says SURPRISE! you're going to have to log in again!  I hope you saved your work.06:57

[Hardy]TuTUXGDanaG, right, and u have to patch the kernel in order to build that module06:58

Mohero|Work[Hardy]TuTUXG: Suspend works fine one mine - it's funny though - it goes into suspend, when I open the lid, it recovers from suspend, displays the password box, and goes back into suspend, I press the power button to bring it out, it comes up with the password screen, I unlock the system, and i get a notice on the system tray saying "your computer failed to suspend" - err... no it didn't...10:09

P2502what monitor?10:15
AmaranthP2502: afaik this happens on all Geforce 8 cards10:15
P2502i have out of range to but in my case it is monitor issue and i use geforce 710:15
Mohero|WorkAmaranth: no - works fine on my Gforce 6 and 7 series cards and the 8 works fine on my Gentoo install - so I won't accept that as an excuse.10:15
AmaranthMohero|Work: hello, see the different numbers?10:15
AmaranthMohero|Work: And laptop vs desktop10:16
Amaranthoh, you said gentoo :P10:16
savvasAmaranth: it's not corrupted, the titlebar in my case takes completely the colours of an inactive window10:16
Amaranthwell, they use something different10:16
Amaranthsavvas: yeah, that happens sometimes too10:16
Mohero|WorkAmaranth: yes, something that works ;)10:16
Amaranthsavvas: or you get a mix of active and inactive10:16
savvasAmaranth: no, just inactive colours, and for firefox only, unless i've missed other applications :P10:16
AmaranthMohero|Work: Something that breaks other machines and apparently screws up suspend on some machines10:17
Mohero|WorkAmaranth: what does?10:17
P2502my monitor claim it support 75 Hz but it is not (EDID bug), so if nvidia driver chooses 75 Hz, monitor show out of range error10:17
Amaranthsavvas: It happens randomly to all maximized applications when you're using a clearlooks-based metacity theme10:17
AmaranthMohero|Work: the thing gentoo uses for bootsplash10:17
savvasAmaranth: ok i'll mark it as duplicate10:18
Amaranthsavvas: And cosmetic issues never get backports, dunno why you nominated it for gutsy10:18
Amaranths/backports/updates/10:18
Mohero|WorkAmaranth: Gensplash? its' crap - but at least I can see it ;) - I actually don't use Gensplash, I like to see the boot process, but on Ubutnu I like the Usplash non-quiet10:18
Amaranthcan't actually do a backport, compiz requires a new Xorg10:19
savvasAmaranth: quick faulty fingers, didn't notice it, until I saw the page refresh :\10:19
AmaranthMohero|Work: the Geforce 8 works differently and either no one know how or has taken the time to make usplash work with it10:19
AmaranthI don't think anyone even works on usplash anymore10:20
Mohero|WorkAmaranth: also Ubuntu seem obsessed with using a horrid screen mode by default - why not allow me to have console mode (including boot) at 1024x726 at least - on 24" monitors the default is just far too big.10:20
Amaranthyou can set this in your grub boot options10:21
Amaranthof course i think the kernel module needed for it got removed from gutsy's initramfs...10:21
Mohero|WorkAmaranth: if no one works on usplash - and no one fixes bugs in it, then something else should be used or someone should take over the fixing of it IMHO - we as Linux can't state we support XYZ Hardware if when booting up that happens10:21
Mohero|WorkAmaranth: yeah it has, and it never worked - I compile my own kernel - but not until after release.10:22
AmaranthMohero|Work: but usplash works for all but this 1% or so of people and I can't think of anything that is all around better10:22
Mohero|WorkAmaranth: no - it works for all but those that have an up-to-date GeForce card - which is a fair amount of people....10:23
Amaranthno, not really10:23
AmaranthMore people have Intel than all nvidia10:23
Mohero|Worksorry NV card actually, not just geforce, the Quadro's do it too10:23
Amaranthand then of nvidia cards i guarantee the majority don't have 8 series10:23
Amaranththe quadros that are based on the geforce 8 do it, sure10:24
thoreauputicthe frame buffer support in both Gutsy and Hardy is broken. Apparently this is not considered a regression...10:24
Mohero|WorkAmaranth: let's not get into who has what, and what is better, point is - it's broken :)10:24
Amaranththoreauputic: you mean vga= lines?10:24
AmaranthMohero|Work: So fix it10:24
Mohero|WorkAmaranth: and there has been reports of people getting it to work with the 8 series cards, so it's possible to fix....10:25
AmaranthMohero|Work: If you're not going to fix it then the problem is already known so there is no need to keep talking about it10:25
thoreauputicAmaranth: anything that requires frame buffers without X is broken - yes vga= etc10:25
Amaranththoreauputic: huh10:25
thoreauputicAmaranth: it's fixable iwth hacking initramfs etc10:25
Mohero|WorkAmaranth: I'll have a go at fixing it, sure, it would just be nice to know sometimes that "by the way we don't work on this anymore" <- then something else should be used to replace it10:26
thoreauputicbut it's interesting that this has worked in Linux for at least ten years and suddenly Ubuntu breaks it :)10:26
Amaranththoreauputic: yeah, just edit a config file then rebuild the initramfs10:26
thoreauputicAmaranth: right - but in my case I am making non-X live CDs and don't know if that will work on other people's hardware10:27
thoreauputicAmaranth: I see Ben Collins has supposedly committed a change regarding vesafb, so we'll see10:28

popey!hardy | [CroX] #10:46
ubotu[CroX] #: Hardy Heron is the code name for the next release of Ubuntu (8.04-LTS), due April 2008 - For more info, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardyHeron - CONSIDER IT TO BE PRE BETA (ALPHA) SOFTWARE - Discussion and support in #ubuntu+1, NOT #ubuntu10:46
RaspberryI run my own company and being able to stay in linux rather than reboot into vista is worth a premium10:46
popey[CroX]: that page tells you how10:46
ZambeziI have a really, really odd problem now. For some reason Ubuntu is eating space on my harddrive.10:47
[CroX]popey: Ah, there it is. Thanks.10:47
popeyZambezi: baobab will tell you where it is eating space10:47
Raspberrylike I said earlier -- I live about 10~12 miles north of the Codeweavers (wine developers) office10:47
thoreauputicZambezi: logs? Checked /var/log/* ?10:48
Raspberryand I could just go in there and pester them, but I'd have to pay them too :p10:48
Zambezithoreauputic: Just noticed it so haven't checked them.10:49
thoreauputicZambezi: might be worth checking /tmp too - I once had a program dump debugging logs in /tmp and use Gigs of space :)10:50
thoreauputicmy fault since I used the -d flag to qemu :)10:50
flipstarZambezi: try filelight :=)10:51
[CroX]Will network-manager get support to "Create new wireless network" using WPA2? Currently it can only "Connect to other.." to such a network and therefor it doesn't seem to autoconnect.10:51
thoreauputicbaobab > filelight :)10:51
thoreauputic[CroX]: does the driver for your card support wpa2 ?10:52
ZambeziHome only takes 1,5 GB, but still 0 bytes free.10:53
[CroX]thoreauputic: Yes. I can connect just fine but only using "Connect to other..". The dialog that pops up when selecting "Create new wireless.." doesn't contain WPA2 for some reason.10:53
[CroX]..only WPA.10:54
thoreauputic[CroX]: not sure, but isn't "Create new... " for ad-hoc ? Doesn't work here either, but I'm on Feisty currently on my laptop ( PPC)10:54
[CroX]thoreauputic: I'm on Feisty too. :) Just wondering wether Hardy will fix that or not.10:54
thoreauputicI don't know, sorry10:55
thoreauputicI've stayed with Feisty on muy iBook, because it doesn't like anything more recent and I'm lazy :)10:55

[CroX]One other thing then. I tried beta 4 this weekend, not knowing b5 had been released, and Firefox3 was rendering some pages REAYLL wierd. It included its own repeated toolbar in the sites background and such. Is that a known problem or was it just me? :P10:56

AmaranthAssid: but virtualbox is slower and needs a copy of windows11:00
Assidnot that much slower.. and crashes less often11:00
[CroX]flipstar: The ones that were installed by default made X crash for me.11:00
Assidthe apps work much better in that if you ask me11:00
AmaranthAssid: it can't be less than 30% slower11:01
[CroX]flipstar: So I gave up on that.11:01
Amaranththat's the "Unsafe Code Tax"11:01
AssidAmaranth: honestly, on my config i dont notice it 1 bit11:01
Amaranthbasically all the overhead required for memory management11:01
AmaranthAssid: and then of course IO is like 10x slower11:02
AssidAmaranth: true at that..11:02
Amaranthbut i suppose for lots of things if you have a fast computer and lots of RAM you won't notice11:02
Assidio .. not that much.. it was faster to load apps into virtualbox than native windows11:02
Amaranththat's because you have a nicely designed filesystem and sata subsystem feeding you data :P11:03
Assidhehe11:04
Assidi get the same 40-50MB/sec on each native io11:04
Assidi.e. ext3 on linux.. gives that speed.. ntfs on windows gives that speed11:04

moomo1ya, idid15:13
P2502dont you fell moving windows in compiz is kinda erratic?15:20
P2502and if i enable then disable it, i cant properly return to normal desktop... i see no desktop until switch consoles15:21
moomo1doesnt someone think the wobbly windows is good, but a bit too wobbly?15:22
P2502actually i heard discussions which involves statements "linux compiz is better than vista aero, you dont have cool wobbly windows and etc" but what these effects for?15:23
P2502sound like a toy of some kind15:24
Slissit is15:24
Slissbut it is grafically quite nice15:24
Slissmoomo1: you can change the compiz settings15:24
moomo1sliss, ya i know, but i thinkt he default is abit too wobbly many? maybe someone agree15:25
moomo1like they made it much wobbly to show it off cool :p15:25
P2502well these wobbly windows not use cpu time at least, unlike minimize/maximize15:25

savvasenemy territory15:27
wastrelmine works once and then doesn't.15:27
savvasbut gnometris works fine too15:28
moomo1savvas, you run Enemy Territory in fullscreen or window mode?15:28
P2502actually i think gnometris has major design flaw, it start having input lag more you play15:28
moomo1oh15:28
moomo1japanese can play tetris at lvl 10015:29

moomo1they play so fast15:29
moomo1savvas, true15:29
moomo1savvas, i asked because i have a game that works fine in fullscreen but behaves strange in window mode15:29
Slissnot true15:29
Slissyou can open up 2 windows :-)15:29
savvasmoomo1: file the bug :)15:29
moomo1savvas, i did.. its the "window decorator" plugins fault15:30
P2502i really like Urban Terror = CS + Quake15:30
savvasi think compiz is disabled for fullscreen apps15:30
P2502no15:30
savvaswell if it's not, the programmers have done a great job, at least from my point of view15:30
moomo1oh15:30
moomo1is there any reason to have compiz enabled in fullscreen mode?15:31
P2502not with defects like titlebar corruption15:31
savvasmoomo1: no, that's why i thought it's automatically disabled :)15:31
moomo1savvas, i thought so too15:31
moomo1since my game works perfect in fullscreen, but strange in window15:31
P2502reason is not to switch effects every time you start a game15:31

strabesor how i would find that out?16:57
mattikI don't use fglrx just now16:58
mattiknot in use in restricted manger16:58
mattikstrabes: sorry I don't answer to you16:59
mattikanswered16:59
strabesi have it blacklisted currently and am using mesa16:59
strabesbecause mesa supports suspend to ram16:59
strabesand apparetly the 8.2 release of fglrx also supports suspend to ram16:59
bazhangVersion 1:7.1.0-8-02+2.6.24.9-10.27 (hardy) for xorg-driver-fglrx strabes17:00
strabesbut the xorg-driver-fglrx package in the hardy repos breaks resuming, so my only conclusion is that the version in the hardy repos is not 8.217:00
strabesbazhang: how did you find that out?17:00
bazhangstrabes /msg ubotu info xorg-driver-fglrx hardy17:01
strabesso the 8-02 in there means that it is the 8.2 release of fglrx? the one on the AMD website?17:02
moomo1i like the hardy wallpaper, makes me feel so artistic and when ppl see it, they think im smart17:03
strabeshaha17:03
moomo1im not17:04
P2502mattik: do you have normal resolution on your display?17:04
strabesP2502: I do and i'm not using fgrlx17:04
moomo1im a dumbass, only reason i installed ubuntu is so i can brag about my compiz desktop, call windows users bad names, and get porno without spyware17:04
strabesmoomo1: those aren't very good reasons17:05
moomo1oh17:05
moomo1well what would be a good reason? it crashes all the time, apps crash all the time, its buggy as hell, its worse than Windows ME17:05
mattikI think so, but screen is very bright17:05
strabesmoomo1: that's because you're running a DEVELOPMENT version17:05
strabesit is in its ALPHA stage17:06
moomo1im not sure i recall Gutsy being much more stable either though17:06
bazhangmoomo1: read the topic or try gutsy ;]17:06
strabesmattik: if you run the command "xrandr" the top number of its output will be the native resolution of your display17:06
strabesmattik: you can then compare that with the resolution you are currently running.17:07
strabesmattik: the brightness of your screen has nothing to do with whether it's running at its native resolution17:07
strabesmoomo1: gutsy was a ton more stable than the current state of hardy17:07
moomo1oh17:07
strabesinstead of complaining, you should help report bugs!17:08
moomo1i have reported bugs17:08
RyanPriorIf I enable my video driver using the Driver Manager and reboot my computer, the screen goes black and the computer becomes largely unresponsive. (I have to use magic SysRq spells to recover it.) How do I figure out what is going wrong and fix the problem?17:08
moomo1like many17:08
mattik1400*105017:08
moomo1and i still have pink shadows in compiz, its not fixed yet17:08
moomo1but well, they actually fixed apport to increase its privacy when i reported it17:08
strabesmoomo1: then maybe you should use gutsy, or even dapper17:09
bazhangearly days yet moomo1 still only alpha 517:09
moomo1some numbnuts decided it was a good idea for apport to send peoples usernames and hostnames17:09
moomo1strabes: i dont want use old technology, its boring, i like new cool stuff17:09
RyanPriormoomo1: If you want to find bugs and you enjoy reporting and triaging them, then Hardy is for you. If you'd rather have stability, definitely stick with the other releases.17:09
moomo1strabes: if you seen Mac & PC commercial, im not the fat old PC guy, im the cool Mac guy with crazy hair17:09
moomo1i enjoy new stuff17:10
RyanPriormoomo1: Bad example. The PC guy is actually funny and talented, whereas the Mac guy is a boring hack. :-)17:10
mattikstrabes: I tried 1024*768 but I still have errors17:10
P2502mattik: can you do screenshot of errors?17:11
strabesmoomo1: well then if you can't wait for things to be released and must have them when they're in alpha stages, you'll get lots of bugs17:12
moomo1RyanPrior: oh i thought the PC guy was fat, old and nerdy and has suit and crashes all the time, while Mac guy was a hip youngster with skateboard and fancy hair17:12

P2502if it crashed it mean it enabled17:25
P2502and not working properly17:25
RyanPriorstrabes: The packages it says to install are already intalled, and the aticonfig commands don't work because they're designed to work with the old Xorg which is in Gutsy, not the new one in Hardy.17:26

moomo1?17:28
RyanPriorstrabes: Plus, it says to use restricted-manager, which is in Gutsy, but the Hardy equivalent is jockey-gtk. Basically, that's a totally outdated set of instructions. :-(17:28
P2502moomo1: its xorg server17:28
P2502mm wait17:29
P2502its cups17:30
P2502I'd be guessing tcp:631 is cups. You can "turn-it-off" completely by removing the cups package or making /etc/rc.d/rc.cups non-executable. Yep, these two methods will kill the cups service and you won't be printing anything if you rely on cups for printing.17:32

nemoI have it working on another laptop at home but that one also has no ssh :(18:27
nemois really pretty trivial these days.18:27
InYourBaseWireless doesn't work at all. The card isn't recognized w/ b43, and ndiswrapper doesn't seem to work either.18:27
s0u][ightu know what card it is?18:28
InYourBases0u][ight: I mean, I have the output from lspci18:29
s0u][ightso u can't retrieve signals from networks right?18:30

nemomoomo1: also System->Preferences->Sound  - there are options under System Beep18:37

nemomoomo1: I like to use visual beep personally18:38
h3sp4wnI don't trust gnome apps to not be stupid (if it doesn't exist it cannot get loaded again)18:38
h3sp4wnand it would still beep on a vt anyway18:38
nemoh3sp4wn: when offering support, is usually best to offer simplest option first :-p18:38
nemoh3sp4wn: blacklisting a kernel module ain't the simplest :)18:38
nemoand most users don't use vt, and vt beeps are rare18:39
nanonymevirtual terminal beeps? i think that's good, you should know when you're doing stuff wrong...18:39
h3sp4wnI don't want a beep everytime there is no tab completion18:40
h3sp4wnI can see that18:40
nemoh3sp4wn: the gnome option also overrides gnome-terminal18:40
nemoh3sp4wn: folks switching using ctrl-alt-Fx might actually still want that beep :-p18:40
nanonymectrl+alt+Fx <318:41
h3sp4wnnemo: people might want tons of stuff - how can anyone predict what they want18:41
moomo1the pc speaker can be useful sometimes, but should not be used much18:41
=== s0ullight_ is now known as punQ-arT
moomo1like in gedit, you press backspace when there is no text, it uses pc speaker, it shouldnt do that18:41
nanonymeyou also shouldn't press backspace when there is no text :P18:42
h3sp4wnYou could just move it somewhere else and insmod it if required18:42
nanonymeit can cause buffer overflows on badly coded software18:42
nemomoomo1: uncheckin Enable System Beep under Sound prefs will disable that...18:42
h3sp4wnYou shouldn't use badly coded software18:43
nanonymeh3sp4wn, right, let's drop ff3. it probably has badly coded parts in it since it's beta ;)18:43
moomo1nemo: yeah but maybe i should have system beep, because it can be good sometimes, but for gedit its not18:43
h3sp4wnnanonyme: Fine by me18:43
nemorebuild gedit then :-p18:43
moomo1hehe18:44
nanonymeh3sp4wn, some ubuntu users would skin you alive though if you tried to push that decision through...18:44

h3sp4wnnanonyme: yep - one of my laptops uses it - (the other uses firefox 2 in /opt)18:48
h3sp4wnIf a firefox32 was provided that was properly integrated I would use it18:49
h3sp4wn(Don't want nspluginwrapper it makes firefox more unreliable)18:49

nemoh3sp4wn: match.18:55
h3sp4wnI got wrong md5sums for loads of 4gb+ files (and then it was right after using rsync so I can only guess it was sshfs's fault)18:55

nandemonaiYeah, unmetered :)20:55
h3sp4wnMohero: Yeah thats not bad - depends who you are working for but I like my non work stuff seperate20:56
savvasbah i envy you lot, in serbia maximum download speed is still 1.5mbps :(20:56
Moheronandemonai: always useful to have the updates unmetered...20:56
Moheroh3sp4wn: yeah, I really don't send out personal emails.... maybe 1 or 2 a month.... and the company I work for a very good :)20:57
Moherosavvas: you're in serbia too are you?20:57
Moherosavvas:20:58

h3sp4wnsavvas: what is that in KB/s20:58
h3sp4wn(I can never get why people quote speeds in anything other than MB/s or KB/s20:59
h3sp4wnwhen its the actual speed you get20:59
Moheroh3sp4wn: it's called Marketing...20:59
Moheroh3sp4wn: MB is a MAX of 192KB/s21:00
Moheroh3sp4wn: Marketing people use mbps or kbps because it sounds more than MB/s / KB/s21:00
nemo192KiB/s :)21:01
h3sp4wnI get 1.1/MBs here - its a 10 mbps switch port21:01
Moheronemo: heh yep :P21:01
h3sp4wn(The network has more capability))21:01
h3sp4wnwhat is KiB ?21:01
MoheroI want to move house, my friend lives in Canterbury, UK and she has ethernet to the Uni...... University of Kent host the UK Mirror Service....21:01
h3sp4wnThis is a uni network I am on21:02
Moheroh3sp4wn: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kibibyte21:02
h3sp4wnMarketing trying to redefine stuff that doesn't make sense21:03
h3sp4wnagain - did you know back in history they tried to legislate pi to be 321:03
Moheroh3sp4wn: that's what they do best ;)21:03
Arwenman amarok visualizations are... unimpressive21:03
nandemonaiYay! Update seems to be going through. *fingers crossed*21:04
savvasMohero: yeah, but believe me, the hacking days are over21:07
savvash3sp4wn: around 150-192 KB/s21:08
frank23I'm running kubuntu hardy in VirtualBox and I installed the guest addons (drivers). How do I set a higher resolution? xorg.conf doesn't specify resolutions at all.21:11
savvasfrank23: gksu gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf21:12
savvasin section "screen" add these:21:13
savvasDefaultdepth2421:13
savvasSubSection "Display"21:13
savvasDepth 2421:13
savvasModes "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"21:13
savvasEndSubSection21:13
savvas(sorry for spam)21:13
frank23savvas: ok21:13
frank23savvas: I edited xorg.conf but I still get a maximum resolution of 800x600 as reported by xrandr21:21
Moherofrank23: it might be worth asking someone that uses / develops virtualbox...21:21
frank23yeah21:22
savvasfrank23: it might be because you're using vesa driver21:22
frank23(II) VESA(0): VESA VBE OEM Product: VirtualBox VBE Adapter21:23
savvasvirtual machines usually support generic drivers like vesa, not other21:23
frank23I get that in xorg log21:23
savvaswell.. that's it, vesa supports 800x600 only I think :)21:23
frank23there is nowhere to change the driver in hardy's xorg.conf either ;(21:24
savvasfrank23: why don't you give hardy a live spin? it is a live cd, you'd be even helping out in bug reporting :)21:24
savvasthere is, but virtual machines don't use hardware graphics21:25
savvas(correct me if i'm wrong)21:25
frank23yeah but I wanted to help with kubuntu documentation21:25
daefeverybody: hi21:25
savvasnot much you can do from a virtual machine frank23, sorry :)21:26
savvassubmit a bug to make them increase the allowed resolution, maybe it's possible21:27
frank23savvas: VirtualBox supports higher resolution. they have their own X drivers for the guest21:28
savvashm..21:29
savvasvboxvideo driver?21:29
frank23something like that21:30
savvasgive me a sec21:30
Mohero121:31
savvas:P21:31
savvasfrank23: do you have a Section "Device" in your xorg.conf ?21:32
savvaswhat does it say next to the Driver?21:32
daefis it worth to wait for 8.04 LTS or should i start with 7.10 ??? i used debian for a few years and don't know where the main differences will be ;)21:32
frank23savvas: only line in Device is Identifier "Configured Video Device"21:33
savvasdaef: http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/ - happy reading :P21:33
frank23savvas: xorg.conf changed alot in hardy21:33
daefsavvas: ty21:34
savvasfrank23: ok let's try from terminal: sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg21:34
frank23savvas: did that already and there is not option to select the driver21:34
savvashrm.. i noticed that as well here21:35
savvasokay then21:35
frank23savvas: yeah the driver name is vboxvideo21:35
savvasfrank23: add a line after the Identifier line21:36
savvasadd this: Driver "vboxvideo"21:36
frank23savvas: ok21:36
frank23savvas: it worked21:37
frank23savvas: thanks21:38
savvasno frank23 thank you, i didn't know there is a video driver :P21:40
frank23savvas: yeah.. vmware makes its own video driver too for the same purpose21:40
assid2man21:41
assid2evertythings messed up after the last 2 updates21:41
assid2apparently it wants to use xgl now21:41
Moheroassid2: define "Everything" ;)21:42
assid2well the ui is slow as hell21:43
assid2fonts are a bit off21:43
assid2has a bold effect. not a prolem.. i think its aliasing messed up21:43
assid2system goes 1/2 the speed it should21:43
assid2brb21:44
assid2if i can21:44
assid2ati on hardy = BAD IDEA21:44
assid2brb.. if i can21:44
assid2okay21:46
assid2this is totally horrible21:46
nicolahis there a way to install hardy heron from a usb stick ?21:47
assid2err.. any suggestion?21:47
assid2ati support is messed big time21:47
assid2weird is.. was working earlier21:48
assid2someone wanna report this for me21:49
nicolahwhat do you developers think about new brainstorm website ?21:49
nicolah(don't reply if you're busy)21:49
assid2i saw someone  have an issue like this21:49
assid2where they had lines on the scrreen21:49
assid2okay thats it.. this box is going back to windows21:50
assid2ati needs better support21:50
muszeklol... I was wondering why I run out of space on / for the second time in two days (yesterday I freed 1.8GB).  /var/log takes 5.7GB21:51
muszek99% of which is syslog, debug and kern.log... which have almost identical sizes21:52
muszekrespectively 591.6, 591.6 and 591.5 MB... plus 3 archives (1.1GB each)21:53
muszekI tail'ed syslog and it's going like crazy with lines like this:21:53
muszekFeb 28 21:53:25 bobek kernel: [70681.176235] wmaster0_rename: TKIP decrypt failed for RX frame from 00:18:3f:45:b6:e1 (res=-2)21:53
muszekis there any way to turn it off?21:53
Moheroassid2: sorry I was reading the news....21:57
Moheroassid2: same effect with open drivers or proprietry?21:57
assid2err. i got an old laptop21:57
assid2dell d60021:57
assid2the new drivers are just messed uop21:57
assid2http://pastebin.ca/92260121:58
Moheroassid2: using the old "ATI" driver? I hav a Dell C610 and that has an old ATI Radeon, that seems fine after the latest updates...21:59
assid2http://pastebin.ca/92260421:59
assid2nah21:59
assid2this is totally messed21:59
assid2i thought it was the profile.. hence assid2 instead of assid21:59
Moherohmmm22:00
Moherocan we get a screenshot of what you're seeing?22:01
MoheroI'm guessing this is readable...22:01
assid2well.. compiz is outta the question.. the lag is horrible22:01
assid2sometimes i get lines left over from previous windows22:02
Moheroassid2: Compiz has never worked on my laptop22:02
assid2"used to" work decnetly well in alpha 4 iso22:02
assid2just been downhill from there22:02
Moheromine actually worked in 7.04.... 7.10 no longer :(22:03
assid2hrmm22:03
Moherobut that's ok I don't use Compiz on my laptop anyway22:03
assid2hrmm i used to22:04
assid2its hard to mimick but i will try22:04
assid2cpu usage also never goes down :(22:05
assid2always 10% and higher22:05
assid2err aiglx is bad right22:06
Moheroyep22:07
assid2coredum whenever i try glxinfo or fglrxinfo22:08
assid2core dump22:08
assid2lets see what happen22:12
assid2s22:12
xtknightwhat was the justification for separating "Try ubuntu" from "Install ubuntu"? (hardy alpha 5)22:13
xtknightdoes install goto a prompt?22:13
assid2live vs installing22:14
assid2i am guessin22:14
xtknightin the previous livecd you could install by double clicking a shortcut on desktop22:14
assid2okay i m outta here22:14
xtknightim about to check it out22:14
assid2Mohero: moving the desktop to windows.. i do have a license lyin around22:14
Moheroassid2: no no no no no no22:15
assid2this card doesnt perform too well here22:15
assid2its going down hill22:15
assid2and i must have submitted 20-30 reports or so from this laptop22:15
ethana2gah... how do i use optical disks with virtual machines?22:15
assid2and i still see it going downhill22:16
Moheroassid2: option 1) don't use an unstable build - any problems you encounter - report them option 2) change linux's each has their benefits, just, don't go back to the dark side!!22:16
ethana2i shut it down, swapped out the .iso it was pointed at...22:16
ethana2miserable fail22:16
assid2Mohero: i like debian based22:16
Moheroassid2: so use Debian ;)22:16
assid2Mohero: too "old"22:16
Moheroassid2: I like Gentoo :)22:16
Moherowhat's too "old"?22:16
assid2thinking of tinkering with linux mint22:16
assid2also my gprs modem works out of the box w/ windows22:17
Moheroassid2: but..... it's M$..... it's the dark side.... you know that, right?22:18
Mohero(I never used to be, but I'm very Bias against MS these past couple of months)22:18
assid2Mohero: yep22:18
nemoassid2: funny. I've had exact opposite problem22:19
nemoassid2: I've spent past 2 weeks tracking down drivers to get XP installed on this laptop22:19
assid2weord22:19
nemoI keep having to reboot into ubuntu just to get a network connection.22:19
assid2weird22:19
assid2my wifi keeps getting cut on linux22:19
nemothe frustrating thing was once I had a network connection, I still couldn't get the drivers from microsoft22:19
nemoyou'd think it'd just recognise my HW22:20
assid2what i dont like is the suppport just went down for ati22:20
assid2i mean yes i understand its alpha and all22:20
nemooh. and their stupid stupid device install screens give 0 details - that's why I had to reboot into ubuntu, just to find out what my devices *were*22:20
assid2but last 4 updates;; it feels worse and worse22:20
nemoI mean. WTH22:20
assid2my desktop.. okay goes up and down.. fast slow fast slow22:20
nemoassid2: you *are* in an alpha release channel. what-do-you-expect? :)22:20
assid2to go up and down ?!?!22:20
assid2not ONLY down22:21
nemo*shrug*22:21
assid2my desktop goes up /down/up/down22:21
assid2gui performance that is22:21
Sonicadvance1I'd have to say that the ubiquity version in hardy Alpha 5 looks quite nice22:22
Sonicadvance1Entire live CD loads up faster as well22:22
* assid2 preferred 422:22
assid2things worked back then22:22
Sonicadvance1The new timezone selector threw me off :P22:23
Sonicadvance1wasn't expecting it to zoom and pan22:23
Sonicadvance1Although, when it was loading, it didn't have a loading bar on my screen22:24
Sonicadvance1kind of a pain22:24
assid2the weather /timezone has a bug. it things asia/calcutta is in asia/karachi22:24
Sonicadvance1hehe22:24
assid2err.. bombay/calcutta is in asia/karachi22:24
assid2bah22:24
nandemonaiWow, I love the new 'world clock' built into gnome. I've been wanting that feature for ages :)22:24
assid2try adding bombay/santacruz22:25
Sonicadvance1The locations thing has never really worked for me22:25
assid2it thinks thats in karachi22:25
* assid2 cant think striaght at 4 am22:25
Sonicadvance1oh wait, new one in Alpha 5 works, I was using Alpha 4 before22:26
assid2it works "better" than 4.. but still broken..22:27
* assid2 now reports bugs with videos22:27
Sonicadvance1bugs in videos? what types of videos and in what program?22:27
assid2no no22:27
assid2when i find a bug.. i dont screenshot22:27
assid2i send a damn video file22:27
assid2how i got to it22:27
Sonicadvance1ah22:27
Sonicadvance1I see22:27
assid2you cant dispute something like that ..22:28
Sonicadvance1seriously22:28
Sonicadvance1Posting them on Youtube? :d22:29
assid2nah22:29
assid2launchpad directly22:29
Sonicadvance1ah22:29
assid2or .. sometimes on my webhost box..22:29
assid2depends22:29
Sonicadvance1on your mood? :P22:29
Sonicadvance1Anyway, I'm going with the 64Bit version this time. seems like a good time to switch from 32 to 6422:30
assid2mood.. bandwith..  what im reporting.. etc22:30
Sonicadvance1:D22:30
assid2Sonicadvance1: not much of a difference honestly22:30
Sonicadvance1exactly22:30
assid2although certain 32bit apps have issues22:30
assid2i think flash and something else22:31
Sonicadvance1screw those certain 32bit apps22:31
assid2but i think gnash fixed that22:31
Sonicadvance1takes forever to configure system locales22:31
assid2get faster hardware ;)22:32
Sonicadvance1Will be getting a quad core in a bit22:32
Sonicadvance1;)22:32
Sonicadvance1eh... did it crash? o_O22:32
assid2i got a Q6600 desktop22:33
assid2not bad22:33
Sonicadvance1I'm going with the new Phenoms22:33
Sonicadvance1because I like the name22:34
assid2overlocked it to 3.2 or something on air..22:34
assid2hehehee22:34
Sonicadvance1hehe22:34
ArthurArchnixuhh.. has hardy fixed it so that when you plug a mouse in the touchpad is disabled, and vise-versa?22:34
ArthurArchnixjust wondering if that's enabled by default yet.22:34
assid2we need better divx/xvid encoding tools22:35
nemoArthurArchnix: that's an odd one. you'd want that behaviour?22:36
nemothat would be something I absolutely would *NOT* want22:36
assid2i used to get > 120fps on windows while encoding22:36
assid2here i get 65 odd22:36
assid2ad i need to know a huge mencoder line22:37
Sonicadvance1There should be a setting! :D "Disable Touchpad when mouse inserted"22:37
nemoassid2: you could just use one of the several divx/xvid mencoder wrapper scripts :)22:37
ArthurArchnixnemo: really? Oh... I mean, why would you want to mouseseses connected at once?22:37
nemoArthurArchnix: touchpad has more features22:38
ArthurArchnixnemo: I agree. Circular scrolling rocks. But under the mouse config, a simple button that said "disable when mouse connected". Something to check.22:39
assid2nemo: i guess so22:39
ArthurArchnixApparently not.22:39
nemoassid2: the speed thing... that sounds like you are doing something else? playing a game?22:39
nemoassid2: why don't you just set your aforementioned divx/xvid wrapper script to run mencoder reniced to 19?22:40
nemoassid2: oh, and there are some mencoder guis22:40
assid2there are ?22:40
nemoassid2: also, I'm partial to avidemux222:41
nemonice frontend for basic video editing22:41
nemofilters, cropping, reencoding.22:41
assid2yeah has some limitations i checked22:41
nemoaudio filtering.22:41
assid2and was slower22:41
assid2wasnt doing justice to my hardware22:41
nemogbDVDenc   for example22:41
assid2hrmm wil check it in the am22:42
assid2its 4.15 now22:42
assid2am just getting ready to packup22:42
nemoassid2: for fully optimised video encoding perhaps you should consider gentoo ;)22:42
assid2gentoo?22:42
assid2how does the distro make a differnece22:42
nemogiven that video encodings are often math intensive and can benefit from processor optimisation :)22:42
* Mohero loves gentoo...22:42
nemoassid2: gentoo can build optimised to your processor's capabilities22:42
assid2right22:43
nemoassid2: if you are an obsessive speed tweaker, can be helpful22:43
nemothe machine I do most of my vid encoding on runs gentoo actually.22:43
assid2but you need the divx6 codec to get any real advantage22:43
nemoassid2: xvid is open source22:43
nemoand when put head to head, the two algorithms work a little differently, but compare favourably22:44
assid2i know.. but divx peforms a whole lot better on my box22:44
assid2and i do mean WHOLE LOT better22:44
nemo... at what, encoding?22:45
nemovid quality?22:45
assid2both22:45
assid2quality/compression22:45
nemovid quality is highly subjective and depends both on the video being encoded and what you are encoding22:45
assid2mainly encoding performance actually22:45
assid2playback depends on whats done22:45
nemoencoding performance... dunno22:45
nemoI'd have to do some timing tests.22:45
nemolets see...22:45
* nemo runs a quick timing test22:46
assid2try it22:46
assid2native windows + latest divx22:46
assid2vs linux w/ xvid22:46
assid2works better on a quad system22:46
nemohm22:48
nemoassid2: well, I don't have any native windows systems, so won't be able to test that one22:48
assid2hrm k22:49
assid2alrite im outta here22:49
assid2but seriously tho. am thinkin win on this mainly cause my gprs works better. and my wifi22:49
assid2lets see22:50
assid2im outta here22:50
assid24.20 am22:50
assid2gnight22:50
assid2err anyne know which version of divx comes with w32codecs?22:52
DanglyBitshow do i get nvidia drivers working for hardy?23:06
RAOFDanglyBits: "sudo aptitude install nvidia-glx && sudo nvidia-xconfig"23:07
RAOFDanglyBits: Same way as in all the other Ubuntu releases :)23:08
xtknighti love the new task manager23:09
DanglyBitswhich nvidia drivers are the nvidia-glx?23:09
xtknightlooks so...dapper23:09
xtknight;)23:09
xtknightso i guess they still dont have 64-bit paravirt support?23:10
DanglyBitsi have nvidia 6600 and tried nvidia-glx-new and hardy would not not go above 480x32023:11
xtknightDanglyBits, what kind of connection.  VGA/DVI?23:11
DanglyBitsvga23:11
xtknightvga even on my new monitor and card misrecognizes resolutions sometimes23:11
xtknighti had to add manual modes23:11
DanglyBitshow?23:11
xtknightfirst, do you see the resolutions if you go in "gksu nvidia-settings" ?23:12
DanglyBitsi have reloaded hardy no restricted drivers yet.23:12
DanglyBitsshould i install the nvidia-glx-new?23:12
xtknightah i see23:13
xtknightyea try that23:13
xtknighti think new supports 660023:13
RAOFYes, it does.23:15
RAOFNew supports everything > geforce 4, IIRC.23:16
cdm10So, none of the Alpha 5 CDs are working for me... and it seems they've removed the Alpha 4 ISOs from the site.23:17
cdm10Any way I can get an Alpha 4 ISO? Or a .torrent?23:17
xtknightcdm10,  not sure..maybe try a daily?23:18
xtknightor you can find a mirror for the alpha4s maybe23:18
xtknightfor example, http://mirror.ne.gov/ubuntu-iso/DVDs-Ubuntu/hardy/alpha-4/?C=S;O=A23:19
cdm10ok23:19
cdm10thanks23:19
agrokerwhen I issue "sudo do-release-upgrade -d" I get the "authentication failed" message with some missing python scripts output, what to do?23:24
agrokermy gnupg was broken, sorry for trouble23:26
Arwenum, why do I have a /dev/nvidia0 when all my hardware is either Intel or ATI?23:35
RAOFThis does seem odd, yes :)23:35
CorruptTerroristfinally on linux!!!23:36
nicolahguys using hardy heron alpha 5 desktop which one is the password to "unlock" some features ?23:39
jacobnicolah: there is no secret password, everything available is wide out in the open23:40
nicolahjacob: I'm running it as a live and it ask for a password to edit wlan configuration23:40
nicolahit ask me to auhenticate23:41
jacobnicolah: if you set a password in the installer, use that one, otherwise try "ubuntu"23:41
jacobnicolah: also try to see if it lets you leave the password dialog empty23:42
nicolahI didn't set any password because I didn't install it, but "ubuntu" does not work23:42
nicolahI'll try with empty23:42
nicolahempty field did the trick23:43
nicolah(thanks)23:43
mrunagidoes hardy have a live cd in the alpha release?23:55
