hischilddavid_, as far as i know, you can reuse your /home partition without formatting it, and it will keep your documents over a new installation.00:00
bizzehso, is anyone actualy going to answer me? why doesnt ubuntu let me use my monitor in full, and why does the installer crash on grub install?00:00
sn00zerbod_, i checked dd --help and it didn't list -r as a valid switch, i'll try it tho00:00

_Oz_bizzeh: please tell me the issue you have again in full.00:00

bod_sn00zer, check the man page aswell00:02
hischilddavid_, in that case i would suggest to create a new partition, dump your /home on that, then resize your partition to a more suitable size, dump your home back, then reinstall00:02
bizzeh_Oz_: first put ubuntu install cd in, wouldnt let me pick my full res (1680x1050), would only let me use 1400x1050, then i had to apt-get fglrx for it to even show a gui at all... now i have waited for nearly a hour for this thing to install, and it has crashed at grub install00:02

vbabiy-laptopHey guys how would I setup a thumb drive to always use the name foo when it mounts on any machine.00:58
archmanbilly: no00:58
zero88Ok. For some reason, every time i boot up, my computer automatically mounts my other partitiojn. why is that and how do i stop it from doing that?00:58
BillyJoewith synaptic you can chose to just download the packages, dose any one know how to tell were they down loaded to?00:58
billybecause for some reason i can share files through wireless and not a lan cable directly connected..00:58
Bart825billy: ping -I eth0
Jordan_Uhischild, I am not sure if this will work, and I am not sure how to get to the equivelent of a higher runlevel in Ubuntu, but try su'ing to your user then running startx00:58
brapsemy xorg keeps booting with Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf.failsafe"00:58
Pirate_HunterBart825: kk, maybe could it be that it is on roaming instead of fixed but than I dont worry about it since mine is eth100:58
brapsemthow do i stio that?00:58
n2diydanand: no luck, and I tried it with alsa and sound too.00:59
xconvergexxsomebody help me00:59
hischildJordan_U, alright ... any idea on how to switch to my user?00:59
Pirate_HunterBillyJoe: depends on the program but thats a good question even I would like to know00:59
archmanyo: you got ndiswrapper working?00:59
billy!ask | xconvergexx00:59
ubotuxconvergexx: 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. :-)00:59

xconvergexxmy usb modem doesnt working on UBUNTU 7.1000:59
danandn2diy - have you tried reboot?00:59
archmanyo: yo=billy ?00:59
billyand i said eff it with ndiswrapper.. i just used bcm43xx thingy to unwrap a driver00:59
Bart825priate_hunter:my system has 6 interfaces you see so i need to make sure it reports the same one each time.00:59
billyyes archman01:00
`ZigosityHey, does anyone know how to remove the password prompt I'm getting when sharing files between my ubuntu box and windows XP? It's sort of annoying.01:00
AtomicSparkxconvergexx: you should never hook a modem to your computer directly. always use a router to protect your network by nat.01:00
Bart825xxconvergexxx: does it reconise it as a mount point01:00
archmanbilly: ok then01:00
n2diydanand: no, I'd like to preserve my uptime, but that may be the solution. I'm going to log out and in, maybe that will do it? BRB.01:00
xconvergexxI dont have a router modem01:01
billyarchman: lol. do you have any advice about setting up a LAN between these two via a patch cable? my routers do automatic crossover so i don't have to worry about crossover vs patch cables01:01
AtomicSpark`Zigosity: if you mount the drive (connect to server...) instead of finding it through network, you can tell it to save your password.01:01
hischildJordan_U, nvm, i should look better before asking ... startx you said?01:01
archmanbilly: now it will be a lot easier for you to install aditional softwaer01:01
billylol yes archman01:01
archmanbilly: dunno01:01
Pirate_HunterI believe that probably half of all problems here can be sorted by doing some online research in google or the ubuntu forum yet no most dont do that :(01:01
amenadoBart825-> paste in pastebin..do this, /sbin/ip a;  then cat /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules01:01
billyanyone have any advice?01:01
Jordan_Uhischild, Yes, after you are logged in as "you"01:01
danandPirate_Hunter - or man ....01:02
stormze1I need help configuring the nvidia driver.  Can anyone assist?  I've been messing with it for hours now.01:02
archmanbilly: dont know much about hardware; software's my thing01:02
`ZigosityAtomicSpark: I knew that, but last time I set up this network I somehow removed the password prompt entirely and I don't remember how I did that.01:02
Jordan_Un2diy, If you want to get as close to a reboot while ( probably though I am not 100% sure ) keeping your uptime try "sudo init 1", what problem are you having though?01:02
hischildJordan_U, su'd to my user, typed startx ... error'd :( "X: user not authorized to run the x server, aborting"01:02
Pirate_Hunterdanand: funny enough I dont use man which is weird I liek to do things the long way never been to reading manual :(01:02
billyhow do i tell when using iwconfig which is my ethernet and which is my wireless?01:03

Bart825amendo:there was no inet in the rules under udev. do you think i could make these interfaces perm by modifying the iftab file01:07
Mega_byteJ-a-K-e: you can use windows drivers in ubuntu01:07
Bart825amendo: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/57650/01:07
Pirate_HunterMega_byte: first time ive read someone making this kind of request cant help but its interesting01:07
danandn2diy - _something_ was using that sound.... wonder why fuser didn't show it ... at least your sounds back though :) what gives with the uptime ... you going for a world record?01:07
matthiasanyone knows how to get rid of the smurf effect from the vide player in ubuntu 7.1001:08
J-a-K-eMega_byte: how would i go about doing that01:08
amenadoBart825-> can you also list your /etc/udev/udev.d/  ?01:08
archmanmatthias: ccsm?01:09
amenadoBart825-> can you also list your /etc/udev/rules.d rather01:09
billyhow do i find the MAC address of my NIC?01:09
Mega_bytePirate_Hunter, that particular ubuntu machine is just isn't connected on internet and the only way to get updates for it is to use windows, there is a topic on the forums, but everyone seems to run the package download script on other ubuntu (or gnu/linux) connected machines01:09
matthiasno the movie player in ubuntu 7.1001:09
billeniumneftune: what did you say? i kind of missed it :P01:09
Mega_byteJ-a-K-e, it's easy all you have to do is to install ndiswrapper and load your windows driver there01:09
n2diydanand: roger that. No, not going for a record, but I do like to brag about uptime.01:09
Bart825Amendo: its not there01:09
Odd-rationalematthias: you mean totem ?01:09
matthiasthe same in the vlc player but more stable when playing ...01:09
amenadoBart825-> can you also list your /etc/udev/rules.d/  this is a directory01:09

n2diydanand: Not so sure about that. 100 years of data is an awful small baseline to work from.01:14
jordan_hischild, There is probably a more official way to do this but try running "mv /etc/init.d/gdm /etc/init.d/gdm_disabled" and reboot, when you reboot GDM should not start at all01:14
jordan_hischild, To set it back simply rename the file back to "gdm": sudo mv /etc/init.d/gdm_disabled /etc/init.d/gdm01:14

willis_Darkmystere,  theres empty partitions.. then theres partitions that have SOME empty space. :) it all depends on exactly what you got. and exactly what you want to do.01:17
danandmatthias - ccsm is in the universe repository - check you have that repo enables01:17

khaloodi have ubuntu-7.10-alternate-i386.iso and wubi 7.04 .... why it tries to download a new iso ???01:18

willis_Darkmystere,  if gparted killed your windows.. its somthing YOU did. :)01:27
Jordan_Uhischild, No01:27
archmanLAsT: then make install, maybe you will need to sudo -s01:27
Darkmysterewillis_: and i thank it for that but still....01:27
Darkmysterewillis_: took 3.8gigs off the end of windows partion.. after defragmenting windows 7 times..01:28
Darkmysterewell cya..01:28
hischildJordan_U, ok ... in that case: i did try that before on this install. It didn't give any info and still went into reboot01:28
MrlostCan Kiba Dock be on Ubuntu Gusty Gibbon ????01:28
FloodBot2NOTICE - If you couldn't speak to the channel during the past minutes, please try again now.01:28
willis_Darkmystere,  Hmm.. gparted dosent defrag as far as i know. - at least not that ive seen.  But yur mileage may vary.01:28
Jordan_Uhischild, try reverting the gdm_disabled, then ( from recovery mode ) run "invoke-rc.d gdm start"01:28
todd_prince_jammys: I have pitivi, not seeing where there is any edit capability01:29
hischildJordan_U, will do01:29
=== _dewd is now known as dewd
archmanguys is there any alternative to ccsm?01:29
prince_jammystodd_: i've never used it. kdenlive or avidemux are worth a shot.01:29
hischildJordan_U, starts fine01:30
MrlostCan Kiba Dock be on Ubuntu Gusty Gibbon ???? if someone has a awnser pls go to #MrLost01:30
Jordan_Uhischild, And you can log in?01:30
hischildJordan_U, untill i login ... not long after it goes into reboot01:30
alsadki have a problem on compile a program take a look at http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/57648/01:30
todd_prince_jammys: Have you used either of thoes?01:30
solexious[Q] Hi im trying to install the steam game server on my ubuntu bx but the install file is a .bin and im not sure how to use it to instal the server...01:31
matthiaseverybody are there any program to remove smurf effects from the ubuntus movie pöayer ???01:31
hischildsolexious, look at www.srcds.com :-)01:31
matthiasplayer ...01:31
prince_jammystodd_: very little. avidemux is kind of a pain, though it probably does the best job.  kdenlive is more intuitive01:31
rhineheart_mcan you recommend DMZ setting to ubuntu box?01:31
Jordan_Uhischild, What if you log in in failsafe mode, or terminal mode ( whatever it's called, doesn't start gnome at all just gives you an xterm window )01:31
puffrhineheart_m: DMZ settings?01:31
rhineheart_mpuff: yeah01:31
puffrhineheart_m: Meaning?01:32
todd_prince_jammys: what is the command to install stuff again???01:32
hischildJordan_U, failsafe mode? xterm window? those things are new ...01:32
archmanalsadk: can't you go with make?01:32
Jordan_Uhischild, You can get more login options by clicking on "session"01:32
todd_prince_jammys: what is the command to install stuff again??? I tried apt install avidemux and no go01:32
prince_jammystodd_: kdenlive *may* require that you also install a few extra libraries, but that shouldn't be problem.  sudo apt-get install kdenlive avidemux     <--would install them both01:32
hischildJordan_U, very well, will try01:33
matthiasarchman the option for video player does not contain too much of setting for video playback ...01:33
todd_prince_jammys: apt-get thanks!01:33
puffrhineheart_m: The usage of the term "DMZ" that I'm familiar with is where you set up a semi-public network that you put your public webservers on.  Effectively you have:   internal net <-> internal firewall <-> DMZ server <-> external firewall <-> public internet.01:33
archmanmatthias: dunno......01:33
puffrhineheart_m: Is this what yo're talking about?01:33
matthiasokey, thank you any way archman ...01:33
matthiasyou did your best ...01:33
archmanmatthias: welcome!!!01:33
puffrhineheart_m: You may find more #ubuntu-server more helpful, but I don't know if they would have anything specific to say.01:34
ClintZ28oss-linux package is in a bad start for me...I can't uninstall it...it complains about some files in /usr/lib/oss/build not being present, but if I place these files here, it removes them and complains anyway...how can I force this package to uninstall so that I can reinstall it?01:34
solexious[Q] Hi im trying to install the steam game server on my ubuntu bx but the install file is a .bin and im not sure how to use a .bin file to instal it...01:34
rhineheart_mpuff: yeah.. that's what I meant..01:34
aibWifi Radar sees lots of networks, but doesn't give me the option to connect to any of them. here's a picture: http://imagebin.ca/view/P_gftLr.html01:34
jinx099solexious, just try ./bin.bin01:34
puffrhineheart_m: As for an SSL cert, you can generate and issue your own SSL cert, but users will see a popup saying that the CA (Certificate Authority) is not a known CA (the browsers come with known CA certs installed).01:34
hischildJordan_U, i'm almsot starting to think that my gfx card is blowing this whole story ... :(01:35
puffrhineheart_m: Maybe check the known CA certs in the firefox browser, see if they list a free CA.01:35
solexiousjinx: tried it :s01:35
aibdoes anyone know what the problem could be?01:35
hischildJordan_U, since no ... i can't01:35
jinx099solexious, is it executable by you?01:35
rhineheart_mpuff: thanks puff for that explanation. how about the DMZ thing?01:35
archmanaib: maybe shutting down the interface and then up?01:35
hischildsolexious, go to www.srcds.com and click on linux. They have a perfect guide on how to install a steam game server01:35
alanhaggaimysterycool, hi.01:36
aibarchman, i've rebooted already..01:36
Lamebeen testing out the daily builds, and for some reason pidgin will crash not long after using it, has been an issue for the last 3 daily builds i believe01:36
mysterycoolalanhaggai: lol hi :p01:36
Lameand by the way, love the wallpaper :D01:36
solexiousjinx: no, tried to chmod it but got chmod: missing operand after `hldsupdatetool.bin'01:36
puffrhineheart_m: I don't have nor know of a standard set of recommendations for a DMZ.  The generally standard recommendation is to run only exactly what you need.01:36
alsadki have a problem on compile a program take a look at http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/57648/01:37
hischildsolexious, chmod + x hldsupdatetool.bin01:37
puffrhineheart_m: #security might help, too.01:37
jinx099solexious, "chmod 755 hldsupdatetool.bin"01:37
aibi've done basic troubleshooting steps. my wifi card is detected automatically. i purchased it because it has a reputation of working on linux01:37
rhineheart_mpuff: okay. but it is an added security right?01:37
matthiasjordan od you have any clue on how to get rid of the smurf effect in movie player01:37
Jordan_Uhischild, Doesn't sound like a problem with the GFX card since you can get to the GDM screen01:37
Lamebusy in here lol01:37
zero88Can anyone spare some of their time and help me with a wireless issue please?01:37
zero88Any wireless Gurus here?01:38
archmanzero88: what's the prob?01:38
mysterycoolLame: lol love ur nick :D01:38
rhineheart_mpuff: the internet cannot access the private network if the DMZ has been enabled and all ports have been forwarded to one computer01:38
puffrhineheart_m: I am not sure what you mean.  The only use of "DMZ" in this context that I know of is as a general security concept, I don't know of a particular DMZ package or setting or anything.01:38
DevourerIf I switch users will any of my programs on the current user disappear?01:38
hischildJordan_U, hmm ... you have an alternate idea? i'm willing to give hardy a shot ... (it's only 2,40 am here, so yeah i've got time :P )01:38
Lamehaha thanks mystercool01:38
zero88archman well, lets see01:38
solexiousgot it, thank you both01:38
Lameyours aint so bad either01:38
mysterycoolLame: no really its really cool ;)01:38
puffrhineheart_m: Ask on #ubuntu-server.01:38
rhineheart_mpuff: I am talking about demilitarized zone01:38
zero88archman,  Im using ndiswrapper with my driver. I am able to scan and see networks but cannot connect01:38
n2diyDevourer: no, but the new user may not be able to access them.01:38
matthiaszero 88: do you have ssid invisible ???01:39
Devourern2diy, how do I make a new user?01:39
puffrhineheart_m: yes, I know what DMZ means, and like I said, I'm familiar with usijng the term in discussing network security, but only as a general term.01:39
archmanzero88: try using wifi-radar01:39
zero88archman, Ive tried everything, from taking off the WEP to changing the name of my wireless network01:39
Jordan_Uhischild, Hardy can only be a solution if you are willing to live with the many other problems it might cause ( and be without support since it's still not released )01:39
stormze1wow.. I had no idea an nvidia card could be so hard to set up...01:39
matthiassorry archman but maybe i can help a ibt ...01:39
zero88archman have done that too01:39
n2diyDevourer: via the command line, or gui?01:39
hischildJordan_U, ofcourse i'd prefer it if i could get 7.10 to work ... but i'm lost as to the cause ...01:39
Devourern2diy, command line I guess.01:40
loquitus_of_borgHey people. How do I pipe a command to be executed. I have a complex command that basically outputs a command. I want that command to get executed. What do I pipe to, to execute literally what is being piped? Like say find . -type f -printf "something complicated"01:40
zero88archman theres something missing somewhere01:40
macabro22I am willing to compile the latest alsa drivers but I am wondering if there's a place I can get a precompiled deb package for the version 1.0.16 instead01:40
hischildstormze1, you're talking about my box?01:40
n2diyDevourer: adduser01:40
Devourern2diy, thanks.01:40
puffzero88: Are you testing this with an access point that you control?01:40
LjL-Temploquitus_of_borg, well, "find" has an -exec option that you can use instead of -printf01:40
stormze1I need help setting up the nvidia drivers.  Everything I've tried has resulted in either a blank screen, or very large screen resolution.01:40
zero88puff yes that is correct01:40
LjL-Temploquitus_of_borg: but generally speaking, typing $(command) results in the output of command being executed as a command01:40
loquitus_of_borgLjL-Temp: except it does not give me alot of flexibility in how to format the filename.01:40
Jordan_U hischild Has it always been doing this since you installed?01:40
n2diymacabro22: google?01:41
Lameanyone else trying the daily builds?01:41
archmantwas a pleasure, gusy, good night...01:41
puffzero88: Okay, wanted to eliminate other possible culprits first :-).01:41
zero88puff I cant set my wlan0 essid without associating with the network.01:41
IanLiuI can see my Windows Network, but when I enter my "Home" group, I get "The Folder could not be displayed". Why is that??01:41
macabro22n2diy tried that already... no luck01:41
zero88puff :)01:41
puffzero88: Can you connect to this access point with a different computer?01:41
hischildJordan_U, i've installed it fine with a radeon x1300 since the installer of the alternate cd and the live cd died during install cq boot01:41
zero88puff ya thhis is the third day straight doing his01:41
zero88puff yes i can01:41
puffzero88: Why is that a problem (assocating with a network)?01:41
zero88puff I cant obtain an ip01:42
n2diymacabro22: hmmm01:42
matthiaszero88: do you use ssid invisible or what ???01:42
DevourerHow do I become root?01:42
matthiassu root01:42

ubotuLAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)01:42
alsadki have a problem on compile a program take a look at http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/57648/01:42
Jordan_Uhischild, Can you clarify that last comment?01:42
puffDevourer: Generally speaking, you don't, on ubuntu.  It is generally dis-recommended.  If you really need to, "sudo bash"01:42
matthiaswhat wirelesss card you have ?01:42
hischildubotu is rather busy01:42
IanLiuI can see my Windows Network, but when I enter my "Home" group, I get "The Folder could not be displayed". Why is that?01:43
zero88matthias im using the Realtek RTL8187b driver01:43
puffzero88: So, first thing, "iwlist wlan0 scan"01:43
macabro22n2diy: I read somewhere hardy will have it by default. Can I somehow fetch it from hardy's repo?01:43
matthiasahh okey i hade a similar problem but on broadcom wireless minicard ...01:43
zero88puff i can scan and do see other networks other then my own01:43
ubotusudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information.01:43
puffzero88: Okay, paste it to pastebin and give us the URL.01:44
hischildJordan_U, yes i can. I have tried multiple times to install ubuntu using both the alternate disc and the live cd. Both have failed. The alternate cd died during installation, shortly after selecting resolutions. The live cd dies while it tries to boot, much alike my current system does01:44
n2diyDevourer: don't know, I'm running Dapper 6.0601:44
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about is rather busy - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi01:44
loquitus_of_borgPeople... basically I am trying to execute the following for every file found: find somedir1/ -type f -printf 'cmp "%p" "somedir2/%f"\n'01:44
zero88puff k01:44
Devourern2diy, cool. :)01:44
puffzero88: You're sure your access point doesn't have any sort of mac filtering on?01:44
khaloodcan I partition my disc first before using uNetbootin ?01:44
Jordan_Uhischild, So how did you install the current system in the first place?01:44
puffzero88: And you're sure you're close enough to the access point?  Sometimes you can hear the access point, but the access point can't hear you.01:44
zero88puff mmm not sure what you mean, but ive been able to connect before01:44
khaloodbecause i'm afraid of making some thing wrong and loose my data01:44
zero88puff ya 5 feet away01:45
puffHave you been able to connect before using this same hardware?01:45
hischildJordan_U, switched my gfx card out with a radeon x1300, then installed it with that gfx card ... and then later on switched the nvidia one back01:45
zero88wheres the pastebin link01:45
n2diyzero88: puff, it is possible to be _to_ close.01:45
DevourerWhat is a root number?01:45
matthiaszero88 seems to me like either the driver is not the correct one or ndiswrapper or the other file installed at the same time is not there01:45
zero88n2diy are you serious01:45
zero88matthias its the right one01:46

zero88n2diy i see01:47
zero88puff http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/57654/01:47
Jordan_Uhischild, File a bug report, then try the hardy install CD and file another bug report :) ( I have noticed that the bug reports that I have filed against a development release are more likely to be fixed by the next stable release than those filed against the current stable, not sure if that is normal though )01:47
speeddemon8803Oh, and zero88, Pastes to http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org01:48
LjL-Temploquitus_of_borg: if $() doesn't work, then you can always "find .... | sh"01:48

emoryDoes anyone know wny Mozilla Thunderbird does not have a drafts folder?  I installed from Gutsy repositories...01:53
n2diyzero88: That's ok, I'm not sure I do either! :) The way I understand it is routers are servers, and only talk to clients, two servers won't talk to each other.01:53

Jordan_Uhischild, file now01:55
IndyGunFreakbella: so ubuntu is seeing the modem, and is telling ti to dial?01:55
zero88n2diy im just really confused on why i can see wireless networks but cant connect to them01:55
IndyGunFreakpurge_kdewallet: no cloue.. sorry.. don't use kde.. maybe askin #kubuntu01:55

zero88matthias yes thats correct, so im assuming it has something to do on my end other then wireless settings01:56
IndyGunFreakbella: well if you're not connecting, then one would think that your settings for your dialup account are wrong.01:56
n2diyzero88: are router won't talk to another router. You need a bridge to do that.01:56
hischildJordan_U, aight will do01:56
zero88n2diy ya01:56
bellabut I have used the same settings all along with windows01:56
SeanInSeattleHey all.  Does anyone know how to check to see if the broadcom wifi card driver has been installed on my laptop?01:56
Housefly7ki set a password for root...in my misguided efforts :)... i used "sudo passwd root" i think... any way i can reset this?01:56
IndyGunFreakbella: , thats very strange, sorry, i have no logical explanation for that01:56
matthiaszero88: yes i think you are right, he only problem i hade with mine was change of driver but if you are sure you have the correct driver than there is something else ...01:57
RyanPriorI try to install updates but it says that there is another synaptic running. However, I don't remember starting anything else. How do I stop the other synaptic?01:57
n2diySeanInSeattle: lsmod01:57

Housefly7kIndyGunFreak: yeah... i was following a tutorial online01:57
bellais ok Indy thanks :)01:57
Odd-rationaleHousefly7k: I think it is "sudo passwd -l root". Maybe someone can confrim?01:57
SeanInSeattlen2diy:  what should I be looking for there:01:57
IndyGunFreakHousefly7k: always trust but verify01:57
zero88matthias well, on the ndiswrapper site it said for my card that the XP version only lets you see networks,but cant connect. So i installed the 2000 version and it works, but the same issue of not connecting so i wasnt sure if it had the same problem01:58
zero88matthias ok01:58
n2diySeanInSeattle: the make or model of the device01:58
Housefly7kIndyGunFreak:  can you confirm Odd-rationale suggestion?01:58
IndyGunFreakHousefly7k: i have no clue01:58
SeanInSeattlen2diy:  I found the model, and it is listed there.01:58

ubotudhcp is Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, a protocol for automatic IP assignment from a router. Ubuntu uses dhclient as a DHCP client but other ones (and DHCP servers too) can be obtained from the !repos. More info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DHCP02:05

zero88mba7eth go to admin>network02:07

Mba7ethzero88 - i wanna do it using ifconfig :) , just curius02:07
netron1234then kill the synaptic process02:07
whoyanehow can i control the panel02:07
matthiaszero88: i have no idea atthis moment, i will be back ...02:08
matthiashungry :)02:08
RyanPriorn2diy: yeah, it shows two of them running.02:08
zero88mba7eth i beleive its something like ifconfig dhclient eth002:08
whoyanei just chat online02:08
zero88matthias lol its ok, ive had a handfull of people helping but its crazyness02:08
n2diyRyanPrior: Two!? Hmmm, write done there pid's, then enter top, when top opens, press k, then enter the pid you want to kill, and then 902:09

spirithandsHello.  Does anyone in here have an ATI HD 2600 PCIe?  I got the newest x64 fglrx drivers to work so i can have full-resolution, but nothing 3D works.. such as glxgears02:09

neil_dI have written a gtk C program, what should I like too, to get it to compile ?02:11
RyanPriorDevourer: it's there to confuse you.02:11
DevourerRyanPrior, it has done it's job. :D02:12
zero88mba7eth i think you have to change the /etc/netowrk/interfaces file02:12
RyanPriorneil_d: You can use gcc to compile it. Install the package build-essential.02:12
Starnestommyneil_d: is libgtk2.0-dev installed?02:12
n2diyRyanPrior: Well, reinstall them. I don't know how, or why, you could of had two version of Synaptic running at the same time.02:12
zero88mba7eth try sudo ifconfig eth0 dhcp, then sudo ifdown eth0, sudo ifup eth002:13
zero88mba7eth assuming your interface is eth002:13
Devourerneil_d, you would probably want to use pkg-config as well.02:13
zero88mba7eth also doing it like that only sets it for the current session02:14
Mba7ethzero88 Just want it for this session :)02:15
zero88did it work02:15
RyanPriorn2diy: Thanks for the suggestion - I was hoping to find a way to use synaptic to find out what the problem was, but killing them worked out okay in the end.02:15
neil_dStarnestommy: yes02:15
Mba7ethzero88 brb :) one moment02:16
zero88mba7eth k02:16
neil_dDevourer: ok, what args should I pass to pkg-config02:16
n2diyRyanPrior: Roger that. It's still a puzzle how you could have started two versions of synaptic, the system shouldn't let you do that.02:16
Devourerneil_d, gcc -std=c99 -Wall -g main.c -o helloworld $$(pkg-config --cflags gtk+-2.0) $$(pkg-config --libs gtk+-2.0)02:17
Devourerneil_d, it would actually by $(...) instead of $$(...)02:17

stormze1ph0rensic: Doesn't work.02:25
matthiasmop: what have you done so far ?02:25
ubotuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo02:26

Jordan_Uhischild, LiveCD or alternate installation ( answer in #ubuntu+1 since this channel is only for stable version support )02:31
ph0rensicstormze1, that happened to me once of the 5 times I've installed it. What I did was uninstall the nvidia driver making sure it was a complete removal, reconfigure the xorg and then reinstall the nvidia driver...02:31

inacomaAnyone know why this is happening for me?02:55
thinkpaduserchris0, i have never had a better laptop02:55
netron1234jake -> try rhythmbox or amarok.02:55
LAsTJ-a-K-e ctrl+c? =)02:55
chris0thinkpaduser: I've heard really good things about the t60s. The t61 is a little picky with Linux, but otherwise I love it02:56
thinkpaduserchris0, it is the 'Death Star' amongst the white Apple 'Alliance' in the office!02:56
thinkpaduserchris0, i think they are the same but yours has the WAN card?02:56
psycholvlandoes ubuntu already come with drivers for the Intel GMA X3100 video card or do you have to d/l them somewhere?02:56
JonathanEllisHi. I am trying to read a cd but I get the error <The folder contents could not be displayed. You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "cdrom0".>. I can list the files using sudo ls but that doesnt help because it is an installation disc for a piece of windows software which I want to use under WINE. I read that it is a very bad idea to run WINE using sudo. Any ideas?02:56
netron1234inacoma ->  it means that the orbits of mars are in the wrong conjunction with scorpio. try burning some insense.02:56
thinkpaduserchris0, Gentoo is dreamy on this one02:56
chris0thinkpaduser: lol. I've had people ask me whether mine's REALLY REALLY old...I just boutght it!. Mine can have the WAN card. I'd run Gentoo if I had time...I can't afford to spend 24 hours updating....02:57
inacomathat was clever netron, did it take you that long to come up with that?02:57
netron1234jonathan _> its a scratched cd.02:57
s2aany1 no the exact date of 8.04?02:57
inacomafucking clown.02:57
thinkpaduserchris0, the install took a while.  but that was a year ago :)02:57
J-a-K-enetron1234: ya... amarok hasn't got the best sound quality and rhythmbox doesn't support ldsa02:57
LAsTJonathanEllis o_O lol?02:58
netron1234inacoma -> you gave no tech details.02:58
chris0thinkpaduser: yup...I ran Gentoo for about a year on a custom desktop....If I had time I'd still be running it, but I need a box that's actually sort of stable, hence Ubuntu02:58
yyeagoI get an error message saying my $HOME/.drmc is being ignored02:58
yyeagoBut I don't even see a $HOME/.drmc02:59

spirithandsHey guys.. i'm going nutzo here.  I've got an ATI Radeon HD 2600 PCIe card.  When I use the vesa driver, it works fine.  I when through the "radeonhd" xorg driver setup procedure @ http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-641247.html  and it still kicks back to the failsafe low resolution driver ..  The radeonhd driver exists:  http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-641247.html02:59
spirithandsWhat is the problem?02:59
thinkpaduserchris0, i used Ubuntu on this a few times.  but to get most stuff to work (suspend, fglrx, madwifi-ng, hdapsd, thinkfinger) i needed to compile everything manually anyway so...02:59
inacomaWhat technical details do you need...02:59
thinkpaduserchris0, it wasn't easy, but it is more stable than Ubuntu ever was03:00
chris0thinkpaduser: really? The only thing I don't have working is HDAPS because I don't have time to patch my own kernel03:00
ForzaPalermoanyone here good with getting ssh working properly? i am trying to get it to work using public/private keys03:00
speeddemon8803inacoma, any errors that may have happened..if their longer than 1 line use the pastebin site.03:00
netron1234inacoma -> a bit more than what you gave...03:00
thinkpaduserchris0, are you using the Ubuntu stock kernel?03:00
inacomaspeeddemon8803: no errors...03:01
inacomaits just hangs after i type hostname,03:01
chris0thinkpaduser: now, yes. I ran the rt kernel for a while, because I do a lot of audio stuff, but I haven't had time for that since I reinstalled.03:01
speeddemon8803that could be SO many things.03:01
inacomawell not hangs... just the blue installation screen with grey text area at the bottom03:01
thinkpaduserchris0, it's pretty easy to patch the sources and install your own as a .deb package03:01
prasannaby accident i've pressed shift and backspace a few times now, it automatically logs me out03:01
thinkpaduserchris0, hdaps is fun even without the patch.  playing Neverball anyway- tilting the laptop around as a joystick haha03:02
netron1234inacoma-> kernel in ubuntu doesnt like your hardware.. try a different distro03:02
prasannais there away i can disable that03:02
ForzaPalermoanyone here good with getting ssh working properly? i am trying to get it to work using public/private keys03:02
N1ghtCawlerHow do i "unsplit" a a screen window?03:02
chris0thinkpaduser: the problem is that the patch for HDAPS doesn't exactly mesh with the Ubuntu kernel and I have yet to figure out why. I was talking to another Thinkpad owner who said that it's a scsi/ata issue...btw to clarify, I have HDAPS, I just don't have disk head parking03:02
inacomaintep pentium d03:03
thinkpaduserchris0, i ran into that03:03
chris0thinkpaduser: and?03:03
thinkpaduserchris0, i needed to find the RIGHT patch which was a pain03:03
netron1234night -> split window where? what software?03:03
thinkpaduserchris0, and then turn some stuff around in the kernel03:03
chris0thinkpaduser: do you happen to know which one it is? I found a bunch, but none of hte patches work with 2.6.22-1403:04
thinkpaduserchris0, for some reason the drive would be sda sometimes and then hda others03:04
chris0thinkpaduser: really....I've never had THAT problem03:04
thinkpaduserchris0, i am using 2.6.2403:04
thinkpaduserchris0, it was weird03:04
psycholvlandoes ubuntu come in a 64 bit version?03:04
thinkpaduserchris0, but it went away03:04
thinkpaduserchris0, for your kernel i followed a link on the Thinkwiki site03:05
psycholvlanhow you get the 64bit version?03:05
Starnestommypsycholvlan: the amd64 version is 64 bit03:05
thinkpaduserchris0, i tried one or two that weren't necessarily meant for that kernel, i remember03:05

thinkpaduserchris0, but found one that didn't fail to patch eventually03:05
wease|nightcrawler: i know this sounds basic but....did you try the "auto" adjust button on your monitor?03:06
chris0thinkpaduser: yeah, if I remember correctly, there was a list of them. I tried every one and they all won't work.03:06
aubadeAny reports of OO.o not displaying icons in the toolbars and context menus for 7.10?03:06
psycholvlan cuz I know in windows i need to use 64bit for my 4Gigs of RAM to show up03:06
thinkpaduserchris0, hmmm03:06
thinkpaduserchris0, i'll see if i have it around to pastebin03:06
chris0thinkpaduser: thz!!03:06
psycholvlanthis ubuntu only shows 2.7Gigs03:07
thinkpaduserchris0, if you pop up to a 2.6.24 kernel i have the right one :)03:07
wease|N1ghtcawler:  i know this sounds basic but....did you try the "auto" adjust button on your monitor?03:08
thinkpaduserchris0, that was a pain to find.  gentoo doesn't even have it in their repos yet03:08
chris0thinkpaduser: where did you find 24? different repo?03:08
thinkpaduserchris0, i'm on gentoo.  you might not have it in yours yet?03:09
chris0thinkpaduser: oh yea....that's what it is.03:09

billycan someone help por favor?03:13
thinkpaduserchris0, sometimes they do depending on what changes are made?03:13
chris0thinkpaduser: yep. For some reason, the main problem has been that Gutsy insists on packaging the Nvidia drivers and the Madwifi drivers together. I'm going to give the patch a try now....03:13
thinkpaduserchris0, it is worth a shot.  you can just apt-get remove --purge the sources and delete the tree if it fails03:13

thinkpaduserchris0, ahh!  really?03:14
thinkpaduserchris0, try the svn sources if you get time.  what card do you have?03:15

ubotuAPTonCD is a tool with a graphical interface which allows you to create one or more CDs or DVDs with all of the packages you've downloaded via apt-get or aptitude, creating a removable repository that you can use on other computers03:33
levandertbrock: But, if you're a junior programmer, I hope you're not expecting people to involve you in design very quickly.  Probably even as a senior programmer you'll be fixing bugs and testing first.  There's also the Mythbuntu project that's actively recruiting ppl if you're interested in that.03:33
Flannelpyutaros: AptOnCD is a ... uh, synaptic-by-proxy sort of thing.  You use it on a computer with networking, it downloads all the (up to date) packages (and depends) for stuff, and makes them easy to burn.  You take the CD you burned to the other computer, and it acts as a repository03:33

pyutarosFlannel: I think I just need to run the script.03:36
yyeagoI thought it would auto-partition my drive into 3 partitions...but it only gave me two!03:36
thinkpaduserchris0, this is with Tuxonice and the SLAB thingy so it suspends03:36
Flannelpyutaros: sudo /etc/init.d/interfaces restart03:36
computerexdoes anyone know why my panels sometimes become invisible? The fix is simple enough, metacity --replace, but I am curios03:36
chris0thinkpaduser: ok....03:36
Flannelpyutaros: er, /networking not /interfaces03:37
ph0rensicyyeago, maybe its me and you heeh03:37
yyeagowhat do you mean?03:37
pyutarosFlannel: Actually, I did start and got an OK.03:37
n00bnessi have a linksys router this is the config im giving my network http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/57660/ any idea why it wouldnt work ?03:37
ph0rensicyyeago, about the partitioner being less useful03:37
thinkpaduserchris0, i'd use this on yours: http://pastebin.com/m4216dfbe03:37
yyeagoQUESTION: should the auto-partitioner give me TWO partitions or THREE partitions???03:37
pyutarosFlannel: now what would be a good test.  prolly ifconfig.03:37
levanderbilly: All I can think of is to explain to you why I think it's not working...  Let me pastebin some instructions.03:37
yyeagoI thought common linux setup was 303:37
NetEchoOk I am using a laptop and just plugged in my Logitech USB headset. Ubuntu recognizes it but even when I go to volume properties and set it to Logitech everything else still trys to use my Speakers and not the headset... how do I correct this issue?03:38
ph0rensicyyeago, are you dualbooting?03:38

ph0rensicNetEcho, hey!03:38
thinkpaduserchris0, i knew i kept this junk for a reason :)03:38
yyeagoph0rensic: my /home/ drive is NFS03:38

fouadn00bness, why you dont use dhcp ?03:38
mouseboyxin the ubuntu php -apache2 how do i disable php from executing in certain directories.03:38
yyeagoph0rensic: cool03:38
chris0thinkpaduser: really? that rocks!03:38
NetEchoph0rensic, any idea how to solve my issue?03:38
ph0rensicNetEcho, oh what is it.. i just got in03:39
Frogzooph0rensic: yeah, the ubuntu autopartition's not too flash03:39
pyutarosMaybe my problem is hardware detection.03:39
NetEchoph0rensic,  ah just started using x-chat.. hard to keep up in it lol anyway here it is "I am using a laptop and just plugged in my Logitech USB headset. Ubuntu recognizes it but even when I go to volume properties and set it to Logitech everything else still trys to use my Speakers and not the headset... how do I correct this issue?"03:39
thinkpaduserchris0, here's the patch for or whatever that config was for: http://pastebin.com/m4afd193503:39
Frogzooph0rensic: just 2 partitions seems a bit ewww, but some people like it that way03:39
ph0rensicNetEcho, Oh man i dunno sorry I haven't tried anything like that yet03:40
yolevander: it decided to start working after that command03:40
thinkpaduserchris0, for the tux on ice patch go here: http://www.tuxonice.net/downloads/all/03:40
NetEchoph0rensic, okidokie, how are you today?03:40
=== yo is now known as billy
thinkpaduserchris0, and get tuxonice-3.0-rc2-for-
ph0rensicFrogzoo, you can make more, but auto-wise it defaults to 203:40
billylevander: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/57661/03:40
ph0rensicNetEcho, Doing alright, u?03:40
billyhey ph0rensic03:41
chris0thinkpaduser: ok03:41
billyits yo03:41
thinkpaduserchris0, use that tux-on-ice patch, the hdaps parking patch, and my config and you are SET UP03:41
thinkpaduserchris0, i had everything working great with those03:41
ph0rensicbilly, yah i saw earlier when you switched03:41
NetEchoph0rensic, not to shabby. I'm out of town visiting my parents so I only have my laptop, usualy I'd stream music off my computer so headphones aren't an issue03:41
billylol okay03:41
JDStoneFlannel: do they exist i Gutys?03:41
ph0rensicNetEcho, ahh i see03:41
yyeagoI've got an edubuntu lab. What would be the best way to deploy all machines with exactly the same setup?03:41
NetEchoph0rensic, any idea if ubuntu has a shortcut key combo to go to desktop like windows' Winkey + D?03:42
billyph0rensic:i finally got everything working.. made a crossover cable from a patch cable and now im transferring all my files03:42
chris0thinkpaduser: cool Thanks!03:42
ph0rensicbilly, right on03:42
thinkpaduserchris0, one thing though03:42
chris0thinkpaduser: ?03:42
thinkpaduserchris0, i have an ATI driver03:42
billyph0rensic: i think to save myself from retransferring files, im just gonna switch out the hardrvies in mine and my bros com since their identical03:42
ph0rensicNetEcho, yah it does .. I dont know what it is, are you using compiz?03:42
chris0thinkpaduser: yep. I'll have to go through for that.03:43
billytransferring them back to my comp*03:43
thinkpaduserchris0, i used this howto to use all that stuff03:43
pyutarosLet me start over.  I am unable to boot to GUI, and am getting errors in syslog.03:43
ph0rensicbilly, you really need to mug someone for their external HDD heeh03:43
thinkpaduserchris0, http://blog.vaxius.net/?p=1903:43
levanderbilly: http://pastebin.ca/92156603:43
billyph0rensic: lmao yeah.. not really now that i have the LAN going, file transfer is pretty fast now03:44
NetEchoph0rensic, yes I am running compiz right now03:44
thinkpaduserchris0, that shows you how to make a nice .deb for the kernel image03:44
yyeagoQUESTION: I've got an edubuntu lab. What would be the best way to deploy all machines with exactly the same setup?03:44
levanderbilly: why not just transfer the files over the wireless connection?03:44
ph0rensicbilly, good for u .. glad you got it all working03:44
FlannelJDStone: No.  Its a security risk, no longer supported in Debian or Ubuntu03:44
Flannelyyeago: LTSP03:44
cottimahello, is there a tool to boot an iso of a lvm partition?03:44
billylevander: because the wireless is mad slow compared to the LAN03:44
chris0thinkpaduser: thz! it'd be nice if I could get everything working. I've got almost everything...this would be the final touch03:44
thinkpaduserchris0, you might not need that SLAB/SLUB thing changed for suspend to work with a Nvidia card03:45
billylevander: im transferring 30GB+/- 5GB03:45
pyutarosSpecifically, "Pango-Warning: pango_cairo_font_get_scaled_font called with bad font, expect ugly output.03:45
levanderbilly: just copy them over, go to bed, get up in morning, it's done.  Don't have to screw with hard drives or anything.03:45
thinkpaduserchris0, that was about 3 months work for me.  hopefully it will save you a little time03:45
ForzaPalermohow do i reset my ssh localhost password03:45
chris0thinkpaduser: yes, hopefully.03:45
pyutarosIs it possible I can just copy something like this off of the LIVE CD?03:45
billylevander: i would do that, but their both laptops, and only one charger, so i risk one dying during the process03:45
FlannelForzaPalermo: You reset your password03:45
ph0rensichey NetEcho , in ccsm go to general and then actions tab then general there is a setting in there (ctrl-alt-D) but you can customize if you want)03:46
zero88how do i check the kernel version i have?03:46
Flannelzero88: uname -a03:46
thinkpaduserchris0, and i know all of those are good for madwifi-ng03:46
ForzaPalermoFlannel, how?03:46
chris0zero88: uname -r03:46
billylevander: so i have a real reason to get it done fast, not just being non patient03:46
ForzaPalermodo i do it03:46
zero88Flannel, thanks03:46
levanderbilly: you're a mess, just go buy a new charger, life is too short03:46
NetEchoph0rensic, thanks03:46
chris0thinkpaduser: cool.03:46
FlannelForzaPalermo: passwd would do it.  (of course, that assumes you know it).  Do you have another admin account on this box?03:46
billyim not buying my little brother a new charger.. they are 50 dollars.. he can buy it himself03:46
levanderbilly: I would try the instructoins I pasted before taking the hard drive out of a laptop.03:46
billylevander: why?03:46
thinkpaduserchris0, so you could just drop everything Ubuntu and do this: http://madwifi.org/wiki/UserDocs/FirstTimeHowTo03:47
NetEchoph0rensic,  works like a charm03:47
levandertaking a hard drive out of a laptop isn't as easy as taking it out of a desktop, things could go wrong (as i've experienced myself)03:47
billylevander: as long as i do it while they're both off im good, they're both identical computers dell inspiron 150 laptop03:47
ForzaPalermoi need to change my ssh localhost password03:47
ph0rensicyah i just tried it myself .... compiz is great huh?03:47
jcg42To access files on a web server withing my own internal LAN is it better to use FTP, Samba, SSH Filesystem, or something else? What about over internet?03:47
billylevander: ive done it before, while the computer was on.. and it still works03:47
levanderbilly: suit yourself, but i'd try the instructions i posted03:47
FlannelForzaPalermo: Thats the same as your user password.  Do you have another account on the box that has admin rights?03:47
thinkpaduserchris0, just blacklist it in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist and add ath_hal to /etc/modules.autoload/ whatever file03:47
billylevander: cuz im an idiot lol03:47
ForzaPalermo Flannel no03:48
billylevander: im damn happy i didn't fry my HD03:48
mouseboyxin the ubuntu php -apache2 how do i disable php from executing in certain directories.03:48
ForzaPalermosee i tried using pubnlic private keys... didnt work, so i purged everything, and i reinstalled ssh03:48
pyutarosAnyone ever seen that error?03:48
FlannelForzaPalermo: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LostPassword will walk you through it.  You'll need to reboot into recovery mode (and then do some stuff locally)03:48
ForzaPalermonow i cant get it started03:48
ForzaPalermobut my login password works03:48
ForzaPalermofor everyhting else03:48
ForzaPalermoroot, etc03:48
chris0thinkpaduser: yep...I'll probably do that eventually, when I have more time, and can deal with borkage....My computer got borked a couple weeks ago and I don't want a repeat experience of that.....03:48
billybrb guys03:48
FlannelForzaPalermo: thats the same as your ssh password.  You've got some other stuff going on then with SSH03:48
thinkpaduserchris0, it can be a headache03:49
ubotuVai su #ubuntu-it se vuoi parlare in italiano, in questo canale usiamo solo l'inglese. Grazie!03:49
greenmanspirithello, i was surfing around the forums with no luck so I thought I would ask here. Does anyone know of a good widget type application that will work as a slideshow for photos i tell it to cycle though?03:49
ForzaPalermois there another way to fully clean it besides purging it from synaptec03:49
FlannelForzaPalermo: do: sudo apt-get remove --purge openssh-server && sudo apt-get install openssh-server03:49
chris0thinkpaduser: yep03:49
ForzaPalermoshit i got it03:49
FlannelForzaPalermo: No, complete removal via synaptic should do the trick.  You can verify that /etc/sshd/ is gone after that.03:49
ForzaPalermoi was doing sudo ssh localhost03:49
billy!oh my|ForzaPalermo03:49
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about oh my - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi03:49

isaacj87greenmanspirit: I'm not sure if screenlets has a slideshow screenlet03:50
thinkpaduserchris0, i haven't messed with one before03:50
ph0rensicisaacj87, oh hah.. you nailed it already03:50
NetEchoDoes anyone here know how to get Ubuntu to start playing audio on a USB headset instead of the speakers?03:50
isaacj87ph0rensic: haha03:51
ph0rensicisaacj87, Im pretty sure there is one on gnome-look03:51
isaacj87ph0rensic: oh really? good stuff03:51
greenmanspiritisaacj87, i dont know what screenlets is, but i just mean something that will cycle through my photos kind of like those digital frames they have in the store now03:51
chris0thinkpaduser: ok. I got it working once. Not that I ever use it, but I like having things working.03:51
ph0rensicisaacj87, whether it works or not, thats a different story..03:51
isaacj87greenmanspirit: hmm, like ph0rensic said...I think there is something like that03:51

thinkpaduserchris0, you are true Linux nerd then!  "Hey, I wonder if I can get that to work?  Not that I will use it but..." :)03:52
isaacj87greenmanspirit: give it a try...couldn't hurt, but like another user said, screenlets are pretty buggy03:52

NetEchoDoes anyone here know how to get Ubuntu to start playing audio on a USB headset instead of the speakers?03:54
chris0thinkpaduser: I still have my Gentoo 2006.1 CD because I like installing it from scratch. So, yeah, pretty much03:54
ph0rensicisaacj87, let me know, I haven't installed screenlets in my new 64 bit install yet03:54
billylevander: what was that suggestion about hard drives you had?03:54
ph0rensicFrogzoo, i think screenlets are way better than the desklets03:54

billyis there any problem with switching hard drives between two identical comps (dell inspiron 1501 notebook)?03:55
dsmith_standard rdp connecting to ubuntu is insecure correct?03:56

billyph0rensic: like what?03:57
chris0NetEcho: you should be able to select your headset in System -> Preferences -> Sound.....03:57
thinkpaduserchris0, you can install Sabayon Linux and you have all the work done for you03:57
NetEchochris0, I do believe I did that but I'll check again03:57
chris0NetEcho: ok....03:57
billyph0rensic: what problems could be encountered by switching the harddrives?03:58
chris0thinkpaduser: yeah, but that's missing the point..... :D03:58
thinkpaduserchris0, i suppose it is isn't it :P03:58
billyph0rensic: i also need some help with the compix stuff03:58
ph0rensicbilly, the drive may not boot properly is the first one .. you could try it to test it03:58
Traveler8i am getting that sudo hostname error03:58
Traveler8i cant figure out how to fix it03:58
chris0NetEcho: the other thing to try is an lsusb and see if your headset is recognized.03:58
NetEchochris0, its still playing out my speakers but now I don't have volume control03:58
JouvaI can't seem to get my OpenVPN connection quite working with the network manager plugin. The connection works just fine for my Windows PC.

billyph0rensic: whats the worst that could happen?03:58
thinkpaduserchris0, i used to do that with Kororaa XGL when Compiz came out03:58

CorrosionXok so I'm trying with an old 5.10 install disk, it's booting up the install and it stopped at "Checking 'hlt' instruction"\04:16
Flannelrikkimaru: once you create a new partition infront of sda1, it'll become sda2.04:16
FlannelCorrosionX: 5.10 is no longer supported, any reason you can't try a newer one?04:16
rikkimaruFlannel: how can I do that?04:17
CorrosionXCause it won't give me textual error messages04:17
rikkimaruFlannel: if i try with fdisk it claims its already taken04:17
ph0rensicjcg42, Im guessing if it is within your lan why not use samba or NAS04:17
Flannelrikkimaru: In the windows installer, you'll be able to create a partition.04:17
CorrosionXI tried em all but only this one gives me a clue with it doesn't work04:17

Ronin-Sagemy situation is: i'm getting err13(invalid or unsupported executable format) when i attempt to boot up vista after an apparently novice partition re-size06:04
gcarrilloFrijolie: if you want to avoid data loss, you could work with the system from the terminal to make backups of your important data06:04
billy_ubuntu started acting all funny.. now im on my other comp06:04
gcarrilloFrijolie: and then fsck the filesystem06:04

ka2who was yo__?06:04
billy_ka2: any instructions you gave me i didn't get to see cuz ubuntu was retarded06:04
gcarrilloFrijolie: i would use a USB drive and copy any important directories/files onto that06:05
ka2billy_: why is ubuntu "retarded"?06:05
Frijoliegcarrillo: can you get to a command line from the live cd?06:05
billy_the internet disconnected06:05

billy_so im rebooting it right now06:05
ka2billy_: so who is billy?06:06
Ronin-Sageanyone know how to remedy my grub problem?06:06
gcarrilloFrijolie: boot the live CD, and bring up a terminal in it.  Then use the "mount" command to mount your hard drive's filesystem06:06
billy_same dude06:06
gcarrilloFrijolie: at that point you can copy stuff from it06:06

Frijoliegcarrillo: ah..RTFM06:12

=== cZw0|b3ttL is now known as cZw0|w0rk
gcarrilloi always forget06:13

gcarrilloyeah, so sda306:13
LogicalDashI just broke my partition table. What now?06:14
billy_whats a command to debug your wirelss? ust like LAN has smbclient?06:14
Frijoliegcarrillo: "can't find /dev/sda3/mnt in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab06:14
rebelproWell I guess I'll just post in the forums and hope that someone who isn't on right now can help me06:14
gcarrilloLogicalDash: rebuild the partition table, i think with fdisk06:15
Frijoliegcarrillo: however, doing a directory listing shows that my data's still in tact (directories)06:15
ere4sinoodles12, http://alltray.sourceforge.net/faq.html06:15
gcarrilloFrijolie: put a space between sda3 and /mnt06:15
Frijoliehehe, funny stuff...sounds like lots of people are having HDD/partition problems06:15
ka2billy_: smbclient doesnt test lan06:15
ka2billy_: ping does06:15
billy_it test file sharing networks06:16
ka2billy_: same for WAN06:16
noodles12ere4si: thanks i'll check it otu06:16
ka2billy_: WLAN06:16
Frijoliegcarrillo: no error message, just a blank prompt again...06:16
Frijoliegcarrillo: i'm guessing that's a good sign06:16
gcarrillonow cd to /mnt06:16
ka2billy_: it test smb file sharing no networking06:16
gcarrilloyou should see your data06:16
billy_ka2: my internet was working, but its not anymore.. it totally stopped working for absolutely no reason. i don't know what to do.06:16
Frijoliegcarrillo: i see two directories: brian and lost + found06:17
Frijoliegcarrillo: brian is my username so I'm guessing that's my home directory?06:17
gcarrillois your username brian?06:17
puffBah, humbug.06:17
gcarrillothats your home dir06:17
gcarrilloso you mounted it correctly06:18
cdubyaI've installed all the codecs and what not to be able to play DVDs on this laptop......I've enabled DMA....I'm using 7.10 and I can't seem to get any DVDs to play right. Device Manager identifies this as a cdrom drive TSSTCorp. I haven't heard of it, and I'm beginning to wonder if I'll ever be able to watch dvds on my Ubuntu partition....:-(    Any ideas?06:18
billy_compix is sooooo coool lol06:18
puffYesterday I disabled compiz because I realized that a) I'm not really using any of the really nifty compiz features anyway, and b) the more omnipresent features (like translucency and bouncy windows) don't really mean that much to me anyway.06:18
haymakerhey how do i see what programs are running?06:18
puffAnd now my laptop crashes every hour or two.06:18
bazhangcdubya: including the package from medibuntu?06:18
puffhaymaker: ps -ef06:18
Frijoliegcarrillo: so does that mean that my fstab got messed up?06:18
gcarrillohaymaker: ps -aux06:18
cdubyabazhang, which one?06:18
gcarrilloFrijolie: i don't think so06:19
ka2puf: i use compiz because I use the features and find it difficult to use a desktop without them now :)06:19
billy_in compix what does desktop cube do?06:19
Frijoliegcarrillo: so, it should be fixed?06:19
bazhangcdubya: the one for playing dvd's ;]06:19
gcarrilloFrijolie: the fstab just tells linux what filesystems to mount automatically at boot06:19
ka2billy_: in compiz it is a cube for virtual desktops06:19
puffka2: Well, I'm not a normal GUI user to start with. I've been using unix since the old vt52 days :-).06:19
cdubyabazhang, package name.....06:19
puffka2: So I basically use X/gnome the same way I use screen/emacs.06:19
billy_oh for like when yo have windows running?06:20
Frijoliegcarrillo: yeah but at boot it couldn't find, or said that the partition didn't contain a filesystem06:20
cdubyabazhang, you mean libdvdcss or whatever?06:20
bazhangcdubya: www.medibuntu.org06:20
gcarrilloright, so fstab is just one file inside the filesystem06:20
gcarrilloi think the filesystem itself is what may be corrupted06:20
gcarrillofsck is usually used to fix those types of problems06:21
ka2puff: do you even need gnome then?06:21
puffka2: Only to drive firefox :-).06:21
earthlingpuff: what client(non GUI - cmd prompt) for irc do you use?06:21
gcarrilloFrijolie: or perhaps you're having partition table problems too06:21
Frijoliegcarrillo: how do I restore or repair the filesystem. Fsck fails each time it boots... you said something about backing up my data before repairing it?06:21
gcarrilloFrijolie: in which case you'd use fdisk06:21
puffka2: In fact, one of the things on my get-around-to-it list was figuring out if I could use the 3D cube effect for alt-tab.06:21
puffearthling: emacs.06:21
Frijoliegcarrillo: how do you tell the size of a directory? ls -a?06:22
gandalfcomeis there an easy way to play sounds from a script in ubuntu? like a command line player?06:22
gcarrilloFrijolie: right, so now you have your home dir mounted, and should be able to access your data.  If you were to plug in a usb drive, you could move files from your harddisk to the usb drive, thereby backing them up06:22
gcarrilloFrijolie: try du06:22
ka2puff: but if youre using gnome like screen why not use fluxbox etc06:22
gcarrilloFrijolie: man du06:23

gcarrilloFrijolie: hmm...it should still work06:29
Zodiac2ok, ill try06:29
[Hardy]TuTUXGpuff, fluxbox is a light weight window manager like metacity06:30
puff[Hardy]TuTUXG: Ah.  I've thought about trying out ratpoison.06:30
Frijoliegcarrillo: wait, Nautilus said that the "brian" folder was 6.3GB but showed empty. However an "ls" under the /home/Ubuntu shows my directories but is only 7.1KB06:30
gcarrillohow bout from the terminal?06:31
gcarrilloi.e. if you cd to /mnt/brian06:31
Frijoliegcarrillo: yeah it's showing in a terminal...06:33

gcarrillouse "cp -r"  or "mv" and you can move the entire directory06:34
gcarrillocheck the man pages though, to make sure you do it correctly06:34
Frijoliegcarrillo: sudo cp /mnt/brian /media/disk right?06:34
Zodiac2bazhang, now it working to a certain level (mouse and keyboard maybe need some configure etc), thanks! :D06:34
gandalfcomeFrogzoo: thanks06:34
gcarrilloFrijolie: i don'06:34
gcarrillot think you need sudo06:34
gcarrilloand add the '-r' so it recurses through the subdirectories as well06:35
bazhangZodiac2: no worries ;]06:35
Frogzoogandalfcome: you'll probably want cplay as a front end to mpg32106:36
gcarrilloFrijolie: to make it easy just do "cp -a /mnt/brian /media/disk/"06:36
gandalfcomeFrogzoo: thanks06:36

gcarrilloyou may figure out how to save the data06:51
billybazhang: what could i possibly do? maybe blacklist a couple drivers?06:52

zgrepArthurArchnix: you won't need tar - it's a single file...07:39
ghostthis is my make output where I believe the error starts07:39
billylunks: ur screwed lol07:39
zgrepArthurArchnix: Or did you mean tar all the files instead of the image...07:39
TrustNoOneere4si, its just 1 screenlet but has many watermarks for it, i will take a look at the config and python script for it07:40
lunkshaha tnx billy07:40
billybroadcom cards are satan to linux...07:40
billyim having so much trouble with mine07:40
yaroghost: Looks like you need to install additional development libraries.07:40
billylunks: i had it working fine, until i installed the updates.. duh duh duh.... lol07:40
ArthurArchnixzgrep: no no, you had it right. I want to compress an image so that it takes up less space on my data partiion.07:40
beautifulsnowFunny. everyone over at the windows channel is talking about linux for a while07:40
zgrepArthurArchnix: that would be via mounting that partition somewhere and then cd <mountpoint>; tar cpzf <filenameOutsideOfMountpoint>07:40
ghostThanks Yaro I will look into that07:40
ere4siTrustNoOne, that is how I get gdesklets how I want them - and screenlets work in a similar way07:40
lunksI'm planning on go to Hardy as it's 2.6.24 kernel and hope to work, billy07:40
_Oz_is there a way to make realplayer launch automatically when you click on a realplayer file in firefox?07:40
bazhanglunks have you just set up this box? never had wireless yet? you can /msg ubotu broadcom  this is the link https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WifiDocs/Driver/Broadcom43xx07:40
yaroghost: Try going into Synaptic and look for libpng-dev or something tlike the same.07:40
billylunks: huh?07:41
lunksbilly, 8.04 tls, new version of ubuntu07:41
zgrepArthurArchnix: then use the dd with the gzip piped... if you have a quick machine: BZip2 has a better ratio but it's slower...07:41
DritzenIt's coming out in April07:41
lunksComing on April. ;P07:41
billylunks: does it have support for the bcm43xx?07:41
lunksI hope it has! x)07:41
yaroghost: You're welcome.07:41
zgrepArthurArchnix: I usually put a buffer in between to see the throughput: dd if=/dev/.... | buffer -S 1M | gzip -c > myarchive.img.gz07:42
Dritzenbilly: It's got a newer kernel and a lot of new features, so it might07:42
billylunks: me too.. im sick of this bcm stuff07:42
yarobilly: 2.6.24 kernel does have a larger support base for WAN.07:42
ghosti hate installing libs because there is always like several versions available07:42
ArthurArchnixzgrep I gotta right this down...yeah, it's a duo core,  but this one here: dd if=/dev/<source> | bzip2 -c > myImage.gz creates my image, but I don't see where it gets piped to?07:42
ghosti ususally just get the one that looks like its the latest07:42
lunksbilly, as soon as I find a cd-rw i'll try it =)07:42
yaroghost: That's normally good practice.07:43
billybut with the drama i've been going thru with ubuntu.... i might just reinstall XP.....07:43
lunksbilly, what's the matter?07:43
Dritzenbilly and lunks:  Hardy Heron Alpha 4 is out, you could try the live cd and see if it works for you07:43
zgrepArthurArchnix: the pipe is the | ... that means dd reads the data from the disk and the data is then sent to the next program which is gzip... this passing on of information is what I refer to as piping07:43
ghostits saying that libpng-12-dev is a vertual package07:43
billyim really sick of the bcm43xx issues07:44
ghostthat means I already have it installed basically correct?07:44
lunksDritzen, I'm downloading daily build07:44
Dritzenlunks: you're adventurous :)  good luck07:44
lunksbilly, do you hang around here often?07:44
yaroghost: Not sure. Is the little box next to it filled in green?07:44
bazhangerr its Hardy alpha 5 and this should be discussed in #ubuntu+1 ;]07:44
billylunks: lately? every day lol07:44
ghostyaro I am using apt not synaptic07:44
lunksDritzen, I just have plenty of time =)07:44
lunksbilly, if it works, I'll let you know =)07:44
ghostbut I would assume that means there is a package installed fulfilling that link07:44
billythanks lunks07:45
billyif im not in here just drop me an email07:45
ArthurArchnixSo it reads /dev/sda1 for example, sends it to gzip to create an archnive, but then leaves it on the partition that called the command? That's what I'm asking, could I add something like | mv myimage.gz /dev/sda3/backup07:45
yaroghost: Okay, so just an easy way to see if its installed is to just sudo apt-get install libpng1.2-dev and see if it says anything about it "already being the latest version."07:45
DritzenArthurArchnix,  After the > filename  just put in >/dev/sda3/backup/filename instead07:45
ArthurArchnixzgrep ^ because I don't really have room for images on my ubuntu partitions. They're 3.5 GB each. My data is pretty big though. Ahh.. simplicity itself!07:46
Dritzenhey mIRC07:46
`mIRC`i install 2 OS...1..is windows ... 2..is Ubuntu07:46

ghostand it said 'this is a virtual package that referes to some other package07:46
ghosti assume the other package is installed07:46
`mIRC`my prob. is it shows GRUB error07:46

Dritzenlunks: iwconfig works for listing wireless network card info too07:48
lunksbazhang, yeah07:48
bazhanglunks ifconfig then iwconfig07:48
ArthurArchnixThanks Dritzen, and zgrep: Yeah. It's like this , I've got a somewhat complicated partitioning scheme, but I should be able to adapt those commands you gave. Except I would like to use bzip instead of gzip... is that all it is.. say bzip in place of gzip?07:48
`mIRC`...can anybody help me??07:48
`mIRC`i got  GRUB loading stage1.5 read error07:48
lunksI just want to find some wi-fi nearby and check if it works07:48
yaroghost: The other problem I might see could be with your #include statement, perhaps getting the file wrong. Like I program a lot with SDL, and to use it I have to #include "SDL/SDL.h"07:49
bazhanglunks to test it sudo dhclient wlan0/cardnamehere without ethernet attached of course07:49
zgrepArthurArchnix: If there is a filesystem on your /dev/sda3 partition then I would advise you mount that somewhere and store the compressed image inside the fielsystem like mkdir /mnt/tmp; dd if=/dev/<source> | buffer -S 1M | gzip -c > /mnt/tmp/mycompressedImage.img.gz07:49

simplexioMDKSIGN: depends.. i have used wine only run civ4, and VirtualBox to run dev-enviroment10:20
naxaMDKSIGN, it depends. try the app. with wine and if it works OK then it is the better. if it's not working then you can use it with virtualbox. if even virtualbox fail, then i don't know what to do but this is rare.10:21

AlexStaceyInstallation went without a hitch. Everything found. Wondefull! Thanks people =]10:28
Micheruthe script being /etc/gdm/Xsession and the command being the x11vnc start command10:29
naxaaSquawk, by "gateway ipaddress" did you mean the ip address of the gateway or "gateway ip address first then the ip address of the local computer again"?10:29
Squawknaxaa, I mean type "gateway number.number.number.number"10:30
naxaaOh i see :D ok10:30
naxaaSquawk, oh, ok, thanks:) By the way in "address ipaddress" address is the word "address" then?10:30
Squawknaxaa, in each of those three cases, the first word is the word, the second is the actual ip address, so for example "address, netmask, gateway"10:33
