fentontravershow do I open port 8080 on ubuntu server 7.100:05
mewshii have a bcm4318 chipset.  It seems to have been disabled somehow, and I screwed around and used different solutions to try to get it to work.  The light comes on, and it lists "wlan0_rename" in the network selector applet, but it never works.  can someone help me out, please?  I'd appreciate it! :D00:05
Slartfentontravers: it's usually open.. you have to have something listening on the other side though00:05
iceswordfentontravers, are you working on apache00:05
fentontraversI've got oracle xe running a webserver on that port...I know it's running cause I can telnet to locally, but I need to access from outside00:06
fentontraversso I know the port must be closed off.00:06
Chewyso could it be an update issue?00:06
Jack_Sparrowbod_, I have seen a few pwople with problems directly related to bad plugins.. not sure where they got them.. that is a whole nother matter.  Chewy.. have you installed any other plugins.. and have you ever used automatix or envy scripts00:06
Slartfentontravers: you might have to tell it specifically to listen on the external network interface.. you have to do that with ssh and apache for example00:06
bod_Chewy, unlikely,.its your the first case ive seen of this recently,.,.00:06
bod_del=its ^^00:07
fentontraversslart_how do I do that?00:07
Chewyno other plugins, and niether of those, i am a Ubuntu/linux first timer, so i dont know what im doing, ive been getting help from someoen though00:07

drew_Slap_Sti1k, there is no where to click00:08
drew_oops00:08
Chewywill that reinstall firefox?00:08
mad_max02Slart, here it is http://www.pastebin.org/2176900:08
bod_Chewy, correct00:08
mewshiNo, it was working.  Then it got disabled.  Now it doesn't anymore.00:08
drew_Slart, , there is no where to click00:08
Chewyok00:08
Jack_Sparrowbod_, I would pull out flash and use the repo version too..00:08
* danand - not an acronym ... just italian for bye :)00:08
drew_Slart, it is all taken up with stuff00:08
Slartdrew_: just click anywhere on the panel.. or you caN't see it?00:08
Chewyand i tried another browser too, but it would load google, and the home page but had trouble otherwise00:08
bod_Chewy, also uninstall the flash thing you got, then install the correct one from synaptic00:08
Slartdrew_: oh come on.. you can find one little spot to click on.. or you'll have to remove something00:08
Chewyhow do i uninstall00:09

=== jms1989__ is now known as jms1989
Slartmad_max02: doesn't it offer to do that for you?00:09
drew_Slart, I really have to remove something? that strikes me as a bug00:09
bod_Jack_Sparrow, i was gonna suggest it but i thought maybe see if its a bad install first,.,.but if othe browser has probs then flash may be the prob,.,.;~)00:09
Jack_Sparrowbod_, You may also find something odd in his sources list...00:09
bod_drew_, just because its broken doesnt mean its a bug00:09
Slartdrew_: there might be some secret shortcut key voodoo combo.. but I don't know one... dragging is the only way I know of00:10
judgen!nvidia mobile00:10
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about nvidia mobile - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi00:10
bod_Jack_Sparrow, true,. but why would that stop firefox?00:10
drew_bod_, a feature then ? ;)00:10
judgenhelp... i cant get video to work properly.00:10
Jack_Sparrowbod_, I am thinking a script was used by his friend to try and get him going..00:10
mad_max02Slart, Yeah it asks to add these lines to /etc/modules00:10
bod_drew_, yer,.,.if you like ;~)00:10
Slartdrew_: you can change it in "properties" too.. but then you have to rightclick on the panel..00:10
Slartmad_max02: let it do it's magic00:10
mad_max02Slart, you think I should add them ?00:10
mewshiok, I have discovered that I have the kernel driver loaded.  However, it doesn't seem to like me.  How can I go about fixing this, and make it work again?00:10
bod_Jack_Sparrow, what sort of script?00:10
Slartmad_max02: that's why you ran the program in the first place =)00:10
bod_Jack_Sparrow, flash downloading script?00:11
Chewyso how would i uninstall flash?00:11
judgeni need help nvidia driver wont work, and nv just dont cut it. what  do i do??00:11
mad_max02Slart, okay lets try00:11
tinmanHi Jack_Sparrow, my x server that had worked for pass 6 month is now sudenly not workign and I have not even touched the configuration, (I tried chrooting with live cd and dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg with all the default options (seve selected) and didnt work) . Now I just get a gray screen when I should get a login screen00:11
mad_max02Slart, should I reboot after that or something ?00:11
judgeni mean BeOS have better 3d support for gods sake at this point00:11
bod_Chewy, not sue, you'd need to know the name of the plugin you donloaded00:12
Slartjudgen: buy a new computer.. if indeed the nvidia driver wont work..   if you want help with the nvidia driver that's another thing of course..00:12
mewshijudgen, did you use the ubuntu package of the nvidia driver?00:12
bod_Chewy probably flash00:12
Jack_Sparrowtinman, what about recovery mode...  can you get into that  and from there can you startx00:12
Chewyit is flash, just from the FLASH website00:12
Slartmad_max02: I'm not sure.. can't really remember00:12
judgenmewshi, yes00:12
bod_Jack_Sparrow, r u getting my pm replies>00:12
bod_?00:12
judgenSlart, its an mobile chipset that has accelerated 3d in BeOS00:12
mewshiTry using the official driver directly from nvidia00:12
Slartmad_max02: try running some kind of application that uses those sensors..00:12
tinmanJack_Sparrow: Go to recovery mode and manually start x?00:12
drew_Slart, bod_ I've had to remove the clock and user switcher00:13
mohbanaHey guys any idea when the icedte plugin is going to be fixed? i can't run azureus because of it, and i dont intend to isntall sun's eithe00:13
miladenwhen i put in my new external harddrive it says: hal-storage-removable-mount-all-options refused uid 1000... Why cant i do anything with it?00:13
Jack_Sparrowtinman, Just a thought.00:13
judgenSlart, nforce4 go00:13
Jack_Sparrowbod.. no00:13
mad_max02Slart, I'll just reboot00:13
Slartjudgen: and the restricted driver doesn't work?00:13
mewshijudgen, go get the official nvidia driver from nvidia, and install it00:13
judgenSlart, as nvidia does not develop any go driver before geforce7, sadly no00:14
Daisuke_Laptopmewshi: wouldn't apt-get install nvidia-glx-new be better?00:14
judgenmewshi, does not work as nvidia has never made the drivers for nvidia go00:14
bod_Jack_Sparrow, would    sudo apt-get purge flash               remove the flash he downloaded ,. or will it scew other things up?00:14
judgenuntill now00:14
mewshino, because i had a similar experience with the ati driver00:14
Slartjudgen: what chipset does the videocard use?00:15
mewshithe ubuntu package had problems, but the offical driver worked great, and even automatically detected my proper dual-head setup :D00:15
renehello everybody00:15
renewont install flashplayer in fluxbuntu00:16
Daisuke_Laptopmewshi: ati != nvidia00:16
rene?00:16
amenadomiladen-> as soon as you plug in your external hd you get that error?00:16
Daisuke_Laptopexpect ati problems, nvidia works a whole lot better.00:16

mewshiDaisuke? O_o00:16
miladenas soon as i try to open it yes amenado00:16
renehowto install flashplayer in kazehakase ?00:16
bod_Chewy, search Synaptic for Flash, anything that is installed called 'Flash' mark for complete removal00:16
mewshiyes, daisuke, I know they're not the same00:17
mewshiI was just relation an anecdote about the ubuntu package not being 'right'00:17
amenadomiladen-> without opening it, type mount and paste the line for this partition here00:17
Slartjudgen: I think you might be able to see the chipset.. or at least the device id by running "lspci -v" and looking for the videocard part00:17
miladenamenado this partition? it is just called media00:18
amenadomiladen should be just one line am interested in00:18
Daisuke_Laptopmewshi: understandable.00:18
amenadomiladen well paste the result of mount..specifically just for that problematic partition00:18
boolkawhen is the next ubuntu release? are there any screenshots availble?00:18
mewshiapril00:18
Daisuke_Laptopboolka: april, and it's going to look about the same00:18
bod_boolka, 8.0400:18
mewshiand i'm testing it atm00:19
Daisuke_Laptopmostly under-the-hood improvements00:19
mewshiit's pretty nice so far :D00:19
Daisuke_Laptopthere is a big theme change coming in october with the release of 8.10 (or so i've heard)00:19
miladenamenado in the terminal i type mount and then what?00:19
boolkainteresting00:19
bod_Daisuke_Laptop, 8.10?00:19
mewshithey should provide girl-friendly themes :P00:19
amenadomiladen paste it here, i can not read your mind, so i can see here00:19
bod_Daisuke_Laptop, codename?00:19
Daisuke_Laptopbut with 8.04 being a long-term support release, it's not happening yet00:20
Daisuke_Laptopbod_: intrepid ibex00:20
amenadomiladen well paste the result of mount..specifically just for that problematic partition00:20
boolkais there a list of improvements?00:20
Daisuke_Laptopwhich i hate saying :D00:20
Daisuke_Laptopboolka: not yet00:20
bod_Daisuke_Laptop, what a stupid name,.,.;~)00:20
Daisuke_Laptopbod_: hence why i hate saying it00:21
Daisuke_Laptopi like ignoble iguana :D00:21

nfuscoIf i have a partition of 50Gb for a fresh install, i want to have: /, /home, /swap - what partion sizes  should I pick for each?00:22
jeffMASTERflexan ibex is a horrible animal. lion snack is all it is00:22
EmmerPwho's got VLC with Firefox 3.03b working?00:22
mewshiEmmerP: there's no such thing as 3.03b in firefox yet00:23
combat_nfusco: /swap = size of ram, / = 6-8GiB, /home rest00:23
Slartnfusco: I'd use 10 GB for everything but home... swap should be about 2GB or so.. twice your memory... and the rest for /home00:23
EmmerP3.0b3 sorry00:23
Daisuke_Laptopprobably 3.0b300:23
Daisuke_Laptopwow, i'm good.00:23
bod_combat_, its usually swap = ram *200:23
EmmerPI see video, but don't see controls... or right-click menu00:23
combat_bod_, why?00:23
tinmanAnyone good with x servers? :s00:24
bod_combat_, because swap isnt as good as physical memory,. so you need more,.,. its usually suggested to have twice the amount00:24
Slartthe swap=ram*2 is an ancient rule passed down from our ancestors.. noone knows why.. =)00:24
jeffMASTERflexcombat_: if you have over a gig of ram, it's safe to make it the same size as the ram00:24
nfuscotwice meory or same as memory or does it really matter? machine has 3Gb...00:24
acee1234are there any linux programs that can encrypt a cd simular to full drive encryption?00:24
nfusco3gb memory00:24
bod_!anyone | tinman00:24
ubotutinman: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?00:24
ChubbyoneGot a dvd/ cd drive that plays dvd's but wont recognise cd's00:24
tinmanbod_: I have asked it 10 times hence simplifying the question :\00:24
LimCorewhat is the difference betwen server and normal edition?00:24
LimCoreserver edition is the same tihng only it installs less by default?00:24
combat_bod_, its an old opinion, i only need swap for hibernate, and therefore it has the same size as my ram00:25
LimCorecombat_: it is totall bullshit to "use x2 more swap then you have ram"00:25
bod_combat_, fair play ;~)00:25
Slartacee1234: you could create a truecrypt volume and burn that to a cd.. I suppose00:25
Daisuke_Laptop!wtf | LimCore00:25
ubotuLimCore: Please watch your language and topic to help keep this channel family friendly.00:25
SlartLimCore: I think the server version doesn't install gnome/kde/xfce00:25
Daisuke_Laptopthe most common number is 1.5x ram00:25
bod_tinman, well people come and go all the time,. a question that isnt eally your question is unlikely to get you an answer00:25
LimCoreSlart: but it is the same distro, only it installs less by default?00:25
nfuscoso just match the size of your ram then?00:26
SlartLimCore: it's the same distro00:26
jeffMASTERflexLimCore: server version includes apache, mysql and php and no GUI00:26
mewshiit depends on how much ram you have00:26
LimCoreDaisuke_Laptop: that is totall bull rainbow as well00:26
nfuscomewshi, 3gb of RAm00:26
acee1234Slart: ill give it a go00:26
basculenfusco: the old 2x RAM is a bit old thinking, but if you wan to suspend you will need more than 2x ram00:26
mewshinfusco then prolly... like... 1GB swap00:26
LimCoreswap_size = RAM_SIZE - memory_your_applications_need_at_once * 1.2 + 128 mb00:26
tinmanbod_: Somehow my x server crashed (I havent touched the configs) so i chrooted through a live cd then dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg and used all teh default options (seve was selected) but the problem still presists00:26
LimCoreso basicly, use 2 gb swap.00:26
LimCoreor less00:26
basculetinman: describe problem00:27
mohbanaHey guys any idea when the icedte plugin is going to be fixed? i can't run azureus because of it, and i dont intend to isntall sun's eithe00:27
SimplySethis there a graphical proggy that lets me add boot entries to grub ?00:27
jeffMASTERflexmerde extraordinaire, i see00:27
bod_tinman, well,. im off in a min, so you should prob address the channel,. not just me00:27
Daisuke_LaptopLimCore: forgive me for offending the almighty swap god.  i was just quoting the most common number bandied about00:27

mewshiOk, I need help fixing my internet configuration settings00:27
SimplySethLimCore: cool .. kate .. thanks00:27
mewshiI A) don't want to see wlan0_rename anymore00:27
combat_SimplySeth, /boot/grub/menu.lst is self-explaining, u dont need a tool for it00:27
Daisuke_Laptopand for most users, who have 1-2gb ram, 1.5x ram is a perfectly sane amount.00:27
LimCoreDaisuke_Laptop: ok you ar forgiven, next time dont quote stupid old superstitions00:27

LimCorewarriorforgod: k3b works fine here. what is the problem00:28
nfuscothanks guys00:28
SimplySethcombat_: yeah .. I'm a vi master .. but I'm out to show the world that Ubuntu can be as mindlessly easy to configure as the worst OS :)00:28
void^mohbana: there seems to be an issue with the build environment, who knows when it will be figured out..00:28
Daisuke_LaptopLimCore: perhaps you could try not being a dick and sharing this information before calling people and ideas "stupid"00:28
Slartwarriorforgod: I have problems too.. my problem is that I don't have any blank cds.. what is yours?00:28
Daisuke_Laptopi'll let myself out00:28
LimCore!ohmy | Daisuke_Laptop00:28

combat_SimplySeth, most people in the world dont need to add boot-entries :D00:29
KuwangerHow do I find out all packages (installed or not) that depend on a package?00:29
warriorforgodI have been able to burn cd's find up until today.  I cannot seem to blank a cd-rw or burn one without gnomebaker, or Write-to-disc saying there was an error in burning.00:30
basculea GUI wouldn't be so hard, browse for kernael image, set sane defaults that can be configed with an advanced button, easy really00:30
LimCoreKuwanger: perhaps in synaptic or other gui (or not gui) package manager by browsing dependencies info00:30
SimplySethcombat_: unless they have a lost boot partition somewhere :-/00:30
jeffMASTERflexKuwanger: if you use synaptic, it will tell you when you right click on a package and select properties00:30
SimplySethcombat_: but good point00:30
SlartKuwanger: there are probably better ways.. but you could try removing it and see what goes with it.. use the -s switch to simulate00:30
SimplySethLimCore: thanks for tryin' ta help :)00:30
void^mohbana: like i said, an issue with the build environment. if you build it yourself (from ubuntu sources even) it will work just fine.00:30
mewshiWhy not set up different channels for different topics?00:30
LimCoremewshi: there are many other channels =)00:31
amenadothere are already00:31
Slartmewshi: it would be very very confusing for the people trying to help out00:31
SimplySethcombat_: I'm bloggin' the setup of my Lappy too .. :)00:31
LimCore!elaborate SimplySeth00:32
mewshihm... well, still, then if someone has, say, a wireless problem, they could go to #ubuntuWireless or something00:32
mewshiinstead of this crap here00:32
amenadoits is not crap00:32
SimplySeth*hands mewshi some TP00:32
LimCoremewshi: this is a good idea which some people try to implement ;) want to help?00:32
Slartmewshi: and noone would be there.. we'd all be in the general channel00:32
jeffMASTERflexmewshi: that would be too specific and the helpful folks would have to switch between lots of different channels. horrible idea00:33
mewshiHaving so many different topics that it's impossible to keep track IS crap, sorry :\00:33
SimplySethmewshi: what Wireless device are you running ? what is your issue ? have you used KWLan ?00:33
AtomicSparkanyone use firestarter, firewall for ubuntu?00:33
amenadomewshi-> you have apache issues? visit apache channel, java? java channel00:33
SimplySethAtomicSpark: yes ?00:33
jeffMASTERflexmewshi: if you are down to provide support for the wireless problems, then by all means, go ahead and do it00:33
mewshiyeah, but those channels don't have over 1000 people all talking about DIFFERENT THINGS00:34
mewshiit's REALLY hard to keep track :\00:34
combat_erm, whats happened to the hidd tool in the bluez-utils package in hardy? cant connect my bluetooth devices anymore00:34
LimCoremewshi: want to help with such idea?00:34
jeffMASTERfleximagine that, people complaining about free support00:34
zeeeeeis there any way to "merge" two ext3 partitions? one is / and the other is /export/home; i'd like these to not be partitioned.00:34
amenadothe beauty of open source, great minds comes together. :P00:34
Slartmewshi: you can always start by putting the name of the person you're talking to first in the line00:34
SimplySethcombat_: is it in gnome-bluetooth ?00:34
zeeeee(both contain data that i need to preserve)00:34
AtomicSparkSimplySeth: i just installed it and it's blocking TCP connections already from a public ip address (i am behind a firewall) and i dont have port forwarding enabled. this is probably stuff from gaim being blocked correct? i have nothing else running.00:34
SimplySethAtomicSpark: that would be a good guess .. yes00:35
combat_SimplySeth, no it belongs to bluez-utils, but i reinstalled bluez-utils a few times and there appaers no hidd :(00:35
* AtomicSpark found lookup hostname option00:35
AtomicSparkheh aol00:35
amenadozeeeee-> not in one shot, save both to a temporary dir, repartition or merge the two, then move the temp over00:35
zeeeeeamenado, thanks!00:35
combat_suddenly, hidd disappeared after a bluez-utils update, a few weeks ago00:35
mcview@zeeeee: copy /export/home to a temporary location in your "/", afterwards use eg. gparted and repartition00:36
AtomicSparkSimplySeth: should i allow or ignore? only thing that works in pidgin is p2p from and to pidgin lol.00:36
mewshiI'm trying to be helpful00:36
SimplySethAtomicSpark: disallow unless you really really really know you need it :)00:36
Hilikushow to i expand the partition where root is mounted?? it seems i need to unmount a partition to extend it but i cant unmount /00:36
SimplySethHilikus: 'cause / is your c:\ drive ?00:36
combat_Hilikus, boot a livecd00:36
SimplySethHilikus: try gnoppix or knoppix :)00:37
HilikusSimplySeth no, its not, but i cant unmount it00:37
AtomicSparkSimplySeth: k thanks. :D maybe this will protect my computer a bit more.00:37
amenadoHilikus-> not in one shot, save to a temporary dir, repartition  then move the temp over00:37
amenadoHilikus-> you can not unmount what you are using now00:37
SimplySethAtomicSpark: yeah FireStarter even does internet connection sharing00:37
jeffMASTERflexHilikus: i siggest using the gparted live cd. because it's a root partition you can't unmount it when you log in to your computer00:37
Hilikuscant i just use the ubuntu live cd?00:37
SimplySethHilikus: you can :)00:38
combat_does nobody know whether hidd is gone? :P00:38
amenadobut do not forget to save, just in case...00:38
Hilikusamenado save what? you mean backup the partition?00:38
amenadoHilikus you like to take risk? go ahead and just move things around.without saving00:38
Slartgood night everyone00:38
combat_Hilikus, backup your data00:38
Hilikusoh yeah, i have that already00:39
combat_ok00:39

PeloHilikus, yes it is  you just need room00:39
combat_ok in hardy its 3.26 already00:39

juannicolasHi, I'm running Ubuntu 7.04 server and trying to do a file transfer  via ftp or samba of a file more than 4.0Gb from a windows machie to thise server and everytime the file reach the 4.0GB file size the conection or transfer breaks.00:40
jeffMASTERflexHilikus: / is  a waste of space. add it to /home if you have a separate home partition00:40
amenadoHilikus-> yeah per the other gentleman, use it for /home instead of expanding /00:41
combat_juannicolas, which file system goes the file to? fat32 only supports 4gb files00:41
=== cure is now known as cure-s
Pelojuannicolas, what is the FS onthe window machine ?  fat32 is limited to files size of 4gig00:41
HilikusjeffMASTERflex its not, i actually need more space when creating dvds, thats /tmp which is /00:41
juannicolascombat_ so maybe thats the problem, the HD in my ubuntu is fat32 (160GB)00:41
amenadojuannicolas-> try scp  you maybe surprised that it will work00:42
juannicolasscp00:42
juannicolason windows?00:42
jeffMASTERflexHilikus: in most burning programs you can set the tmp directory. also, you could always make a separate temp partition if that is the case00:42
juannicolashow can I do a file transfer of more than 4.0GB?00:42
amenadojuannicolas-> from linux, you can scp00:42
SimplySethwhat size blocks does fdisk show ?00:42
AtomicSparkSimplySeth: i switch from wireless to lan a lot, will this be a problem for me? seems to only detect one at a time.00:42
juannicolasyes, but this time is from windows to linux00:42
combat_juannicolas, get another FS, fat32 does not even support acess restrictions00:43

bluefoxxLimCore: for the most part, it does. however it doesnt appear as /dev/dvd and as such gxine cant seem to use it. also i dont belive the dvd reigon has been set in it01:50

We will be using the windows ext3 driver to do this since he los01:58

mouseboyxnevermind i enabled mousekeys02:03
AshnalKuwanger: but the OS is installed at the beginning of the disk so i think02:03
rycoleIndyGunFreak: ok, this seems to be working. it's downloading about 45 files.02:04
IndyGunFreakrycole: right, now, you can either search synaptic for xchat, and install it, or go to add/remove, or in a terminal, sudo apt-get install xchat02:04
KuwangerAshnal: See, my guess would be either (a) the wrong locations is being pointed to or (b) initramfs wasn't created properly.02:05
Lifeisfunnyanybody have a good website that can teach someone about compiling programs?02:05
KuwangerAshnal: In any case, your easiest option would be to boot the Ubuntu Live CD and go from there.02:05
Lifeisfunnysorry, that might be for offtopic02:05
AshnalKuwanger: umm i stated that the liveCD was lost02:05

I ahve a static IP, and our router points port 80 to our box. I use a seperate hosting company and would like to have dev.ourcompany.com point to out box. With my host I can redirect (which just resovles to the ugly IP but works) or do a CNAME02:06

rycolewill have to do some googling.02:07

KiD_ChAoSnow im going to ask a bunch of questions and i want you to answer them immediately02:25
tristanmikeon_hiatus, I'd say if Jahromeo has a solution for you, great, otherwise, I'd suggest doing the text based install and see if you have better luck02:25
killerbeesatemeAutoMatriX:  Yes, it will place a program in your system tray that will turn red with alerts...if I remember correctly.  I havne't used it for a while02:25

Jahromeoyes but during install when it reaches 82% is installer displaying "scanning for mirrors" e.g. does it get stuck when its scanning for repositories?02:26

on_hiatusstupid noob should have written that down...02:26
Jahromeoand installer carries on02:27
tristanmikeon_hiatus, out of curiosity, do you get an error telling you you're out of RAM ? or is that an assumption ?02:27

killerbeesatemejarrettgreen:  ok, let me check on 2 things, and i'll be right back02:59
jarrettgreenk02:59
Elevator_HazardWho knows anything about how ubuntu running on external that I usually have plkugged into my desktop would work on my laptop? Its got different graphics card type like nVidia where this one has ATI, and other differences like that...02:59
xeenanI have a noob question for you guys. I have a creative X-Fi sound card and im have trouble getting sound. its recognized in the hardware menu but the volumn has an x thru it and i get the error box     ""No volume control GStreamer plugins and/or devices found.""  any help would be apreciated02:59
d0s4gwIs anyone aware of any tools for partitioning and formatting a newly added second hard disk?  In this case the drive is SATA.02:59
Chewyso what do i do>02:59
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen:  i just tried dev.blinkmg.com and it doesn't flip to an ip on me03:00
Chewyi checked the file and it is set to none03:00
jarrettgreenkillerbeesateme oh yeah crap. we switched it back to their server03:00
Chewyso what do i do03:00

tehmassHey guys wuts a good FTP Client foR Linux03:03
tinmanChewy: ask the question03:03
jarrettgreenkillerbeesateme - ok it's up. But again, all I did was hit "http redirect" on that subdomain - so obvioulsy it'll show the IP, just as if I put google.com in there - I know this is not the right way to go about this. I need to choose either DNS or CNAME, but I don't know which03:03
tinmanwols: http://pastebin.ca/92293603:04
nickrud!ftp | tehmass03:04
ubotutehmass: FTP clients: !Nautilus, !gFTP (for !GNOME) - !Konqueror, !Kasablanca, !KFTPGrabber (for !KDE) - See also !FTPd03:04
Chewywell i run firefox and it loads for 2 seconds and then closes, i checked the error and it said "bus error" i went into firefoxrc and made sure it said "none" and it did03:04
Chewyso i dont know how to fix03:04
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen: well, i'm still not showing a flip03:04
jarrettgreenWhat does your browser page say?03:05
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen:  have you directly accessed the ip from your browser?03:05
jarrettgreenbefore yes03:05
wolstinman: and no X when you ran startx?03:05
Chewyso?03:05
wolstinman: also: still vesa03:05
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen: i'm just showing dev.blinkmg.com, or blinkmg.com03:05
jarrettgreenno I mean, what is displayed at the page?03:05
tinmanwols: i tried vesa,  get a flickring screen (live tv without cable)03:05
jarrettgreen'Ztest'03:06
jarrettgreen?03:06
EstesarkWhen I load some pages with flash, the flash loads and displays, but then immediately afterwards it goes completely white (for example www.jimmyeatworld.com) - rendering some pages unusable. Any advice?03:06
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen:  yep03:06
blahblahxanyone here know about yelp?03:06
tinmanwols: i tried startx03:06
AshnalKuwanger:what did you find?03:06
jarrettgreenYeah that's the 1and1 server03:06
wolstinman: a grey screen and a X with startx?03:06
jarrettgreenyou need to reload or something03:06
wolsChewy: why didn't you do what I told you?03:06
tinmanwols: vertical brownish lines03:06
danbhfiveEstesark: are you using opera?03:06
EstesarkFirefox03:06
KuwangerAshnal: Here's two things to look at.  One, http://trinityhome.org/Home/index.php?wpid=1&front_id=12  It seems to be a 3-way booting rescue system.  I've no idea how well it works.03:06
wolstinman: describe better please03:06
nickrudChewy: try   mv  ~./mozilla mozilla-backup && sudo apt-get install --reinstall firefox firefox-gnome-support . That will remove any personal settings (and saving a copy) and reinstall firefox03:06
danbhfiveEstesark: well, that page works for me, you can try this: sudo apt-get install --reinstall flashplugin-nonfree03:07
nickrudoh, wols you've been working with Chewy then03:07
KuwangerAshnal: Second, there's this:  http://pxeknife.erebor.org/  And it seems to work with boot floppies.03:07
Estesarkdanbhfive: Thanks, I'll try that and let you know.03:07
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen:  ok there we go03:07
tinmanwols: there are series of paraller verticle lines alternating to brownish and black so bworn black brown black like lines03:07
tehmassuse nautilus u need to do the ftp:// cmd ya?03:07
wolstinman: LCD?03:07
nickrudElevator_Hazard: your video would need resetting, but otherwise most stuff should just work03:07
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen:  i'm thinking you need to add a CNAME pointing dev.blinkmg.com to that ip03:08
steph_Hi everybody. I just bought a linksys router wrt54G (wireless). I can't connect with my laptop. I don't know what to do exactly. Can someone help me?03:08
Estesarkdanbhfive: No, same thing still happening03:08
killerbeesatemeand turn the redirect off03:08
tinmanwols: samsung CRT 15 "03:08
jarrettgreenFROM 1and1?03:08
wolstinman: ut X didn't crash back to console or did it?03:08
dvarg388steph_, I assume you're using it wired now?03:08
Elevator_Hazardnickrud: Heh ok I get kind of worried when messing with stuff that isn't mine... Well its my dad's laptop03:08
tinmanwols: when i hit enter it goes back to concle03:08
wolstinman: and with the livecd it all osrta works?03:08
pawanhave to check manullay to update03:08
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen:  well is your domain actually hosted by CNAME too?  or is by another company like godaddy or networksolutions?03:08
wolstinman: but not before?03:08
tinmanwols, works perfectly03:08
Elevator_Hazardnickrud: You helped me wiht some vid problems I had :D03:08
KuwangerAshnal: Here's an example for a rescue floppy:  http://freshmeat.net/projects/tomsrtbt/03:09
nickrudElevator_Hazard: heh. Must have been a simple one03:09
wolstinman: it'S your xorg.conf then03:09
tinmanwols, not before i press enter, no03:09
jarrettgreenkillerbeesateme - no 1and1 has it, and it's on their name servers03:09
steph_dvarg388: :) No I'm using another computer (wired)03:09
xenthroquestion: is there a windows device manager equivalent in *nix? I want to see a list of hardware and which drivers are attached to it.03:09
wolstinman: so X "sorta" works with startx03:09
tinmanwols: can i copy xorg.conf from live cd and some how paste on my root partition03:09
d0s4gwbtw, the answer to my question is GParted.03:09
KuwangerAshnal: I have to go, but I'll hopefully be back later.  In any case, you can look for more help by searching for pxelinux.03:09
wolspurge gdm and reinstall it03:09
tinmanwols, it starts, kinda03:09
Elevator_Hazardnickrud: also I had problems with my usb audio you said you couldn't help me with. Figured it out, set frequency to something else and the sound is wonderful03:09
tinmanhmm, okey03:09
wolstinman: you can try. nothing you can break :)03:09
blahblahxin yelp how do i change what the help is? like what if i want to change what it looks like when it starts up?03:09
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen: is there anywhere on the control panel you can add CNAMES too?03:09
wolstinman: how "kinda"? :)03:09
philphotonew problem to tackle. if i hotswap or install a device into my IBM T30 then reboot, I lose wifi.  network manager returns no wireless devices detected.03:09
wolsah, startx, yes03:10
philphotoany ideas?03:10
nickrudElevator_Hazard: like from 44100 or so to some 48000 thing?03:10
dvarg388steph_, Have you enabled the wireless and set an SSID?03:10
jarrettgreenyes03:10
jarrettgreenunder specific domains and subdomains03:10
Elevator_Hazardnickrud: actually the opposite03:10
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen:  ok03:10
nickrudElevator_Hazard: ah. Well, I'll remember that one03:10
DevourerHow do I extract a .zip file in the terminal?03:10
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen:  so when you add a cname, is there  a spot for a subdomain or hostname and an ip address?03:10
tinmanwols: when i do startx, the screen becomes black for a second, then i get the aformentioned paraller lines, total of about 10-15 lines maybe03:10
nickrudElevator_Hazard: actually I kinda lied, I might remember that one ;)03:10
jarrettgreenkillerbeesateme - i dunno it just asks for an 'alias'03:11
Elevator_Hazardnickrud: heh, yea. It was a Logitech USB Headset 25003:11
steph_dvarg388: Yep. And I have a MAC osX who work without problems. So I assume the router is ok. But in Ubuntu 7.1, something is missing. Is there a way to see if my laptop can see the network (even if not working )?03:11
nickrudDevourer: install  unzip03:11
wolstinman: what does ls -l /etc/alternatives/x-window-manager say?03:11
szx0Can anyone link me to some good resources for setting up hardware RAID 1?03:12
nickrudElevator_Hazard: now I remember. Might get one of those, now that I know they work03:12
wolssteph_: iwconfig if it's wireless03:12
wolsszx0: depends a bit on the driver iirc03:12
wolsszx0: what'S your raid card?03:12
tinmanwols: r03:12
tinmanlrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 2008-01-31 23:33 etc/alternatives/x-window-manager -> /usr/bin/metacity03:12
jarrettgreenkillerbeesatme - ok I read the faq and I think that's where I put the other domain, under alias.03:12
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen:  in that spot, enter dev03:12
Elevator_Hazardnickrud: They actually are a little bit fragile, I had another pair and the ear peice thing started to come loose. In the end a wire broke in between those and they stopped working.03:12
billycan some one help me with freaking bcm43xx.. i can't believe how messed up this stuff is.. i can't get it to connect.. ive installed bcm43xx cutter, tried ndiswrapper.. nothing worked03:12
szx0wols: it's built into my MB... Tyan Tomcat K8E S286503:12
Elevator_Hazardnickrud: I had a year warranty though.03:13
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen:  does it prompt for an IP address anywhere?03:13
nickrudElevator_Hazard: good03:13
tinmanwols: i an running the ls in th mounted root partition and not in liveCD's /etc bt03:13
tinmanbtw*03:13
C3POhi03:13
wolstinman: update-rc.d x-window-manager and try some other one. or maybe apt-get install fluxbox and checkt he x-window-manager link again03:13
wolstinman: good thinking :)03:13
nickrudbilly: what chip number03:13
steph_dvarg388: It gives me information about eth1. But is it the information I wrote/configure or it is a kind of "reply" from the router?03:13
wolstinman: go and install irssi on the ubuntu install thn you don't constantly need to reboot and can be in here03:13
wolsszx0: doesn't say what chip it is03:14
chris0C3PO: *tweet clack clack whirrrrr*03:14
jarrettgreenkillerbeesateme - no specifically, and when i put in the ip it says the top level domain I entered isn't valid03:14
wolsszx0: but to be fair, I dunno much about hw raid either03:14
tinmanwols: screen through shell03:14
bahadunnhi I am using the flashplugin-nonfree on amd64 with nspluginwrapper and I cannot play flash in firefox03:14
bahadunnany ideas?03:14
wolstinman: what irc client are you running right now?03:14
tinmanirssi03:14
tinmanssh'ing into a shell then screening into irssi03:15
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen: so you put in the CNAME alias, as dev, or dev.blinkmg.com and then it never asks for an IP address?03:15
danbhfivebahadunn: i dont think flash works on 64 bit03:15
bahadunndanbhfive: it is suppose to with nspluginwrapper03:15
eccentricityhey guys, I've never been able to get my mic working on ubuntu. Off the top of anybody's head, besides things being muted or not plugged in, is there any reason this might happen?03:15
philphotoproblem with wifi on reboot after installing device (usb, pcmcia) or hotswapping bay on ibm t30.  wifi devices are not detected after reboot.  second reboot fixes problem.  ideas?03:15
wolsdanbhfive: with nspluginwrapper it sorta does03:15
wolsbut tricky to setup usually03:15
tristanmikewols, just to let you know, I've fixed it... just changed the type of the "dvd" to auto in fstab...03:16
bahadunnwols: is there any alternative?03:16
jarrettgreenkillerbeesateme http://faq.1and1.com/domains/dns_settings/13.html03:16
jscinozis it possible to use suspend2 to instead of the default suspend/hibernate functionality without using a custom kernel (e.g. as a module)?03:16
jarrettgreensee if you can get to that03:16
amenadogenbuntu-> if you go to init level 1 ?03:16
wolsbahadunn: mre info would help. e.g. maybe start ffox from a xterm and check the ouput03:16
szx0wols: The MB chipset is "nVIDIA nForce4 Ultra" with "NVRAID"... hmm ill dig some more03:16
bahadunnwols: besides gnash which has never worked for me03:16
wolsbahadunn: could be flash doesn't get /dev/dsp and gets cranky03:16
wolsszx0: that is NO hardware raid.03:16
Wabbitythis may sound stupid, but does anyone know how to find the Linksys WUSB54G 64bit driver?03:16
wolsszx0: don't use it03:16
billynickrud: sorry got disconnected03:17
bahadunnwols: all I did was install flashplugin-nonfree and then run nspluginwrapper -i /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplugin.so03:17
wolsWabbity: what chipset does it use?03:17
Xupiterwould anyone be able to point me in the direction of a tutorial on how to build an .iso.03:17
billynickrud: any ways, its bcm431103:17
GibbProblem: My monitor cant display the mode upon boot and shutdown that has the graphical display with the orange bar. Is there a conf file to change the resolution it goes to?03:17
wolsbahadunn: that's not what I talked about03:17
cdsboyAny wiz's at ati drivers around?03:17
Wabbityits v1...03:17
szx0wols: oh... hmm... why do you say that?03:17
wolsXupiter: use k3b or mkisofs for the commandline03:17
nickrudbilly: same as mine, so I at leat know this one03:18
bahadunnwols: I realize that but you asked for more info so I am providing it03:18
Xupiterok, thank you very much!!03:18
billynickrud: fo sho03:18
wolsszx0: bacuse it isn't. not chipset based raid is ever hardware raid. adapter, 3ware they make some (not all) hardware raid cards. tyan puts sometimes their chips on the mobo: hw raid too. but chipset raid is NEVER EVER hardware raid03:18
billynickrud: ive tried everything03:18
wols!fakeraid03:18
ubotuTips and tricks for RAID and LVM can be found on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RaidConfigurationHowto and http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO - For software RAID, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto03:18
ubu2I have a weird issue with Adobe Flash freezing and looping during video or animation even after it has buffered. It just stops moving and the sound stutters for a few seconds, then it resumes a few seconds later (causing you to miss those few seconds of video). It seems to be completely random when it happens.03:18
nickrudbilly: I'm reviewing some stuff, a sec03:18
wolsbilly: poor you03:19
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen:  so, when you get into that screen, what does it say under the Domain name spot, the first field?03:19
philphotogibb: you need to change the image size in /etc/usplash.conf03:19
pawanhave to check manullay to update03:19
billywols: you have no idea03:19
wolsnickrud: ever tried a .24 kernel?03:19
Gibbphilphoto, thx03:19
jarrettgreenkillerbeesateme - could you read the faq?03:19
nickrudwols: mine works just fine with th3 .2203:19
bahadunnI got it working03:19
bahadunnthanks anyways03:19
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen:  yea i was able to get into it03:19
Wabbitywols: It's WUSB54Gv1 I remember reading somewhere that it isn't the same chipset as the v4.03:19
philphotogibb: that could be one culprit03:19
Gibbphilphoto, is it an image that takes up the whole resolution? what causes it to go that that mode?03:19
upsilonphiomegahello !03:19
jarrettgreenkillerbeesateme - ok well check this out I think this is what I need? http://faq.1and1.com/domains/dns_settings/12.html03:19
wolsWabbity: find out which one it is03:19
jarrettgreenan A-Name?03:19
billynickrud: i might get disconnected for a minute here, ill tell you when i get back03:19
Elevator_HazardOff the top of anyone's head - can you use a remote admin tool on windows to remote admin / use remote desktop in linux?03:20
szx0wols: so, it would not be acceptable to use the chipset based raid just for mirroring a Hard Disk to another?03:20
cdsboyAnyone have some ideas on how to get decent performance with newer flgrx drivers? I need to use one of the catalyst 7.12 drivers or up, because of suspend issues. Except i am getting horrible performance compaired to the flgrx drives that come with ubuntu03:20
wolsbahadunn: how?03:20
danbhfivejarrettgreen: i think you want the a-name03:20
jarrettgreenerr a record03:20
wolsszx0: no. use linux software raid03:20
philphotogibb: it should be set to the default screen res that you have associated with your graphics card03:20
wolsszx0: no problem with raid1 anyways: no computation03:20
danbhfivejarrettgreen: if you can use an ip address to access your website, then just use an a record03:20
szx0wols: gotcha! ill read on that, thanks03:20
Gibbphilphoto, uh oh. hmm. The screen after grub right? thats the one im talking about. I wonder what its deal is? ill mess with the conf. thx03:21
jarrettgreenbandhfive - I'm guessing this works on subdomains too - I'm just trying to point a dev subdomain to my dapper hox so I can work on Ruby on Rails apps and other things our hos doesn't provide03:21
wolscdsboy: ask ati.com: their software. we can only support ubuntu drivers03:21
philphotogibb: it's just a splash script.  what are you wondering about it?03:21
nickrudbilly: try running   sudo /usr/share/bcm43xx-fwcutter/install_bcm43xx_firmware.sh03:22
cdsboywols: i was just hoping there was a graphics wiz laying around03:22
billynickrud: theres no internet connection on my ubutu comp at all03:22
danbhfivejarrettgreen: yeah, i think it will work.  It looks like 1and1 is handling dns for you, so you don't have to worry that it is a subdomain03:22
billynickrud: im on a windows comp in here..03:22
ubu2Flash freezes up, hiccups, or whatever you want to call it with different video cards and drivers. I tried even different versions of Firefox. it's driving me insane03:22
wolsdanbhfive: how can it work if he isn't the auth domainserver for his domain?03:23
Wabbitywols: prisim chipset03:23
nickrudbilly: bummer. A sec again03:23
jarrettgreendanbhfive - awesome! Dooes this take long to propogate? Does it even need to propogate?03:23
billynickrud:k03:23
jarrettgreenerr propagate03:23
wolsWabbity: prism should be supported out of the box03:23
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen: about 24 hours, i think03:23
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen:  but i've never seen it take that long03:24
openbackhi, I was going through the 'Synce on Ubuntu' instructions, and was finally succesful at getting a connection to my pda, but then I noticed that my internet connection wasn't working I had to uninstall ppp to get it to work again. Does anyone know of a workaround?03:24
jarrettgreendanbhfive killerbeesate me thanks guys. I'll see if it takes.03:24
danbhfivewols: I'm not totally sure of the question, which may stem from my ignorance on dns, from the link given, it looks like 1and1 takes care of it03:24
jarrettgreenThis has been the last step to what was a very enjoyable first time experience setting up a linux box.03:25
danbhfivewols: *but from03:25
killerbeesatemejarrettgreen:  no problem.  i apologize mixing up A record and CNAME.03:25
nickrudbilly: ok, it's a really short script. go get http://downloads.openwrt.org/sources/wl_apsta-3.130.20.0.o03:25
wolsif it does, their server is the only one where he can set his subdomains03:25
Wabbitywols: under the hardware manager I get unknown in the usb slot03:25
jarrettgreenkillerbeesateme - no prob man, you got me there somehow...03:25
wolsWabbity: lsusb03:25
billynickrud: i did thatone already.. used to work not anymore03:25

ScuniziOccationally when printing from my networked lasar printer, the printing process will hang consuming a huge amount of the processor.  Top says it's user "lp" with a GS command. printing hung with an email I wanted to print.  Any ideas why this would happen?03:26

nickrudbilly: if it worked once, it'll work again.03:26
eccentricityhey guys, I've never been able to get my mic working on ubuntu. Off the top of anybody's head, besides things being muted or not plugged in, is there any reason this might happen?03:26

xtknighttero-, network manager maybe.  it's a gnome and kde thing03:42
AgentHeXCrimsonDork: just search synaptic for that string.03:43
Jordan_Ubilly, There are more firmware files, one of which is probably the one you need for your card, you can get them by installing the "bcm43xx-fwcutter" package, or I can give you a link to a zip file with all of them03:43
tero-xtknight: aha, it's network-admin?03:43

xtknighttero-, hmm nope network-manager03:43
xtknighttero-, "nm-applet" is the applet for it.  but network-manager is a library kinda..03:43
yaroEstesark: Go ahead and try killerbeesateme's thing.03:44
tero-xtknight: thanks. I'll have a look03:44
xtknighttero-, basically network-manager in some cases can compete with ifconfig/ifup and mess things up03:44
EstesarkI get "dpkg: --force option takes a value"03:44
=== Freecast454450 is now known as iceman_

Estesarkyaro: It's bizarre - I seem to have to configure the package before I can get rid of it03:46
xTheGoat121xyaro, (1) every time I start the laptop, most of the stuff on the panels freezes... when I restart them, nm-applet never comes back03:46
Jordan_Uiceman_, There are many of both kinds of themes, but I personally think *NIX looks better when it's not trying to be something it's not :)03:47

Estesarkkillerbeesateme: I just tried sudo dpkg --purge -a, and it downloaded all the files succesfully03:48
xtknighttero-, knetwork-manager maybe or something...i think there's a kde one03:48
billyJordan_U: what is the link for all the firmware files?03:48
Estesarkkillerbeesateme: Perhaps there was a network problem03:48
chris0Ububegin: if you know that it's in your home directory, just say cd && ls -R etc. Etc. Etc.03:48
iceman_Jordan_u, while i have to agree with u. i need it for ease of function and so i can get the other people in my house to use it by tricking them into thinking its still windows.03:48
deadowlchris0, is it possible to create a key binding that takes some sort of buffer through GNOME?03:48
billyjordan: and how do i install them with bcmfwcutter?03:48
yaroxTheGoat121x: (1) You'll probably have to delete your .gconf and .gconf2 folders and go back to a default GNOME configuration. I'm sure there are other ways, but they're difficult at best.03:48
xtknighttero-, either way im not sure how your supposed to configure it under blackbox03:48
Estesarkkillerbeesateme: So now I'm going to try removing it again03:48
yaroxTheGoat121x: (2) Are you using anything like, say, Pulse Audio?03:48
subsumeWhat would be the best way to use CRON to send an email (from a postgres database) every day? have bash script dump mysql result into a text file, then read it...then....or....?03:48
killerbeesatemeEstesark: i think i got it03:48
ubu2am I the only person with terrible skipping in Flash?03:49
Jordan_Uiceman_, I don't recommend tricking people either, especially if it's not your computer03:49
chris0deadowl: I've been thinking about it. You'd need to copy/paste text to a temporary file, less it and then pipe it to espeak. I'm not sure how you'd do the copy/paste part tho....03:49
killerbeesatemeEstersark:  i went thru with this with network manager, and what i did, was go into synaptic03:49
Jordan_Ubilly, I will make it in just a second :)03:49
xTheGoat121xyaro, (1) OK, I'll do what i can regarding that.  (2)  No, I use ALSA.  And it worked until just yesterday.03:49
haymakeri deleted my user account, i am using a backup account, how can i create a new account with the same name as the first?  when I try it does nothing03:49
Ububeginchris0: i think u misunderstood me... I issue a find command now...and it returns the location of the files.. But I want the sizes of the files as well as the location03:50
billykk03:50
yaroxTheGoat121x: (3) I don't know what that is. D:03:50
killerbeesatemeEstersark: then clicked the status button, and went into Not-Installed, residual package configuration03:50
philphotoproblem with wifi on reboot after installing device (usb, pcmcia) or hotswapping bay on ibm t30.  wifi devices are not detected after reboot.  second reboot fixes problem.  ideas?03:50
chris0deadowl: the 1337 hax pwnag3 way to do it is to say espeak in gnome-terminal and then Ctrl-C/Ctrl-Shift-V it into the terminal03:50
gorgpersian03:50
xtknighttero-, ifup eth0 doesnt work in blackbox?03:50
xTheGoat121xyaro, yeah, most I've talked to have no idea.03:50
RootyRootRootW00Hi grsync won't write to my vfat drive. As far as I know, it's not permissions, any ideas anyone?03:50
xTheGoat121xand it's not on the forums.03:50
yaroxTheGoat121x: (2) Do you have a lot of things configured to use ESD or OSS?03:50
iceman_normally i wouldn't either, jordan_u but considering all our other pc's with xp and/or mac broke down i have to get them to use this. people are scared of linux because everythingisn't handed to them in one easy package like macs/ or windows apps are03:51
killerbeesatemeEstersark: and then find the package, and then mark it for complete removal03:51
xtknighttero-, if networkmanager is not running on blackbox (it isnt) then ifup should interfere03:51
xtknightshould not *03:51
deadowlchris0, yea, it would essentially be a script that runs espeak < src03:51
Ububeginchris0: u have any idea :?03:51
xTheGoat121xyaro, not a thing, actually.03:51
gorgiran03:51
gorgpersian talking03:51
iceman_because of that people are like no. linux sucks when in fact it doesnt03:51

jack|assSo I have serveral files that apparently had their timestamp written as "1961-11-25 17:31."  Anyone have ideas on what caused that?  and how it's doing dates before 1970?04:14
tero-xtknight: and then I setup the wireless adapter with iwconfig04:15
xtknighttero-, ah well blackbox is too obscure to have a network UI i guess.  im not sure if filing a bug for that would do any good altho im surprised eth1 wasnt there by default.  might be a bug higher in the food chain..04:15

soreaudeadowl what are you trying to ultimately do?04:18
xtknightdeadowl, i dont quite understand what u mean04:18

deadowlsoreau, I'm trying to essentially do xsel --clipboard | espeak from the panel04:18

billyjordan_u: do you know where outlook express saves its files?04:29
DindeDoes anyone get some information about dccprobe problem ? edidfail, i can reproduce this bug, actualy it happends when you update from feisty to gutsy. If anyone have a workaround/fix, it would be appreceated !04:30
xtknightoutlook express saves email in Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities i think04:30
xtknightor something like that04:30
wolsfrom what I remember the 6400 chipset has been available a while. so the kernel might already have support04:30
wolsit's a bog standard server chipset04:30
xtknightthey're .dbx files04:30
Jordan_Ubilly, It's all one monolithic file, can't you just get to it from the outlook UI?04:30
DindeThe result of this bug is i can't use my DVI output with the native resolution for the screen04:31
xtknightDinde, i dont know i havent had the problem04:31
CrimsonDorkAnyone knows how to set two different screens using a Nvidia 8400 chipset?04:31
billyJordan_U i think its corrupted..04:31
wolsDinde: handedit the xorg.conf04:31
Jordan_Ubilly, Try getting it through the web interface04:31
xtknightCrimsonDork, dual monitor?  is 8400 chipset a dual head04:31
billyin ubuntu? you sent it to my windows computer.. the ubuntu one isnt on the net04:32
DindeTried to do that but it's a plasma display through a DVI -> HDMI adaptator, it worked fine on feisty. I can't get the good Modeline for this screen ...04:32
xtknightDinde, ahh hmm.04:32
Dindeedidfail04:32
xtknightDinde, did you install drivers for your video card04:32
Dindeyes i did, fglrx04:32
gorbierdsuggest me please where information about system language(imean language pack) are stored?04:33
CrimsonDorkxtknight: Dual monitor, yes. Dual veiw, not just duplicate. And on Windows it would let me have both but that inside the Nvidia settings, here I don't seem to find this option.04:33
DindeI've seen on launchpad that i'm not the only one with this bug, no workaround on the board.04:33
xtknightDinde, so modeline generation thru "gtf 1366 768 60" does not work, or w/e the native res of your plasma is..04:33
xtknightCrimsonDork, do u have nvidia proprietary restricted drivers installed04:33
gorbierdI just want to change this information in my customized livecd04:34
DindeI tried also, when i supply the information from my manual, and compare, there is some big difference, and display become a real mess04:34
xtknightDinde, have you tried using a Modeline, though?04:34
CrimsonDorkxtknight: I think I do, I can see the settings and make miracles with the main screen, but when I try to set a secondary screen it doesn't let me.04:34
xtknightCrimsonDork, type "gksu nvidia-settings"04:34
DindeYes04:34
gorbierdany one can help me?04:34
billyjordan_U how do i extract it to lib/firmware?04:35
gorbierdor see me)?04:35
xtknightDinde, how about UseEDID false or whatever ATI driver's ignore EDID command is04:35

ubotugorbierd: Please don't ask to ask a question, ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely answer. :-)04:35

xtknightDinde, well HDMI might possibly be a problem i dont know04:35
CrimsonDorkxtknight: Kk. That is the same windows I saw earlier.04:35
billyjordan_u?04:36
Jordan_Ubilly, Save it to the desktop then "cd ~/Desktop && unzip firmware.zip && sudo cp firmware/* /lib/firmware"04:36
xtknightCrimsonDork, and you can't summon the second display using that control panel04:36
xtknightCrimsonDork, ?04:36
xtknightCrimsonDork, it will appear as disabled to begin with or something.  press Detect Displays04:37
Dindextknight: the point is, it was working 1 hour ago before my update to feisty :|04:37
xtknightDinde, oh really04:37
DindeAs reported at launchpad website ;)04:37

prasannahey, what can i use to sync my smartphone on ubuntu?04:38
Frijoliei'm getting some weird stuff happening. Every time I get to a GUI boot my window decorations are gone and I have to type "metacity --replace" in a terminal and leave the terminal open for them to stay04:38
CrimsonDorkxtknight: Set it as Separate X screen?04:38
xtknightCrimsonDork, depends04:38
xtknightCrimsonDork, do u want span or dualview04:38
Jordan_Ubilly, It's not necessary for the firmware to be in each of them as long as it's in the root04:38
brad01How would I find out what's in my pc card bus?04:38
MrPiracywhere can i enabled phisics in kiba-dock settings?04:38
Frijolieit also takes networkmanager about 5 minutes to load after I see the GUI04:38
CrimsonDorkxtknight: Dual.04:38
billyjordan u do i extract those files as well tho?04:39
xtknightCrimsonDork, separate X screen makes them two different GNOMEs04:39
CrimsonDorkxtknight: Right on. The other is just big. K.04:39
xtknightCrimsonDork, otherwise you want twinview.. well twinview is like span mode.  but maximizing one window will only use one screen04:39
Jordan_Ubilly, Sorry, didn't mean to include those04:39
Frijolieany ideas how to fix this?04:39
Dindeanyway, thanks for your concerne ktknight. Gonna install gentoo.04:39
Dinde-e04:39
billyk so there not important? now i just restart right?04:39
xtknightDinde, alrighty then04:40
MrPiracywhere can i enable phisics feature in kiba-dock settings?04:40
Jordan_Ubilly, instead, to unzip all of them but only copy the firmware "cd ~/Desktop && unzip firmware.zip && sudo cp firmware/*.fw /lib/firmware"04:40
billyso how do i undo what i already did?04:40
brad01How would I find out what's in my pc card bus?04:41

Jordan_Ubilly, Nope, hopefully it will "just work™"04:43
xtknightCrimsonDork, interesting04:43
billyshould i blacklist any old drivers?04:44
xtknightCrimsonDork, well when you can get it to detect everything, press Save to X config.04:44
szx0I'm trying to install Ubuntu with Software RAID1, I have two 300GB drives, I configured everything in the partitioner and told it to write it to disk, but now no matter which option I pick from the main menu it just dumps me right back in the partitioner!

Dindelet's try hardy before reinstalling whole os :x04:45
speeddemon8803Dinde, you do realize hardy is still in testing stages right?04:45
Jordan_Ubilly, I feel like an idiot now, if I hadn't included the other firmware files for every device for multiple kernel versions it would have been much smaller and uploadable04:46

Jordan_Ubilly, That should prevent the need to restart, if restarting didn't work that probably won't either ( but it might be nice to see if it gives any errors )04:50

ThreeFingerPetehi there. i've installed ubuntu on 4 machines, but i have a question. i'm about to install it on a toshiba laptop. the hdd has four partitions. "TOSHIBA SYSTEM VOLUME", the partition with vista on it, a small 3 gig partition and a hard drive recovery partition. An hdd is only allowed 4 partitions, right? how should I approach this?04:53
CrimsonDorkxtknight: Same thing, Save X it and nothing happens.04:53
xtknightCrimsonDork, u have to pres ctrl alt backspace to restart X server..04:53
xtknightCrimsonDork, logout otherwords04:53
CrimsonDorkxtknight: K, lemme check.04:54
billyhelpppp jordan_u04:55
J1hey i have a strange issue... i isntalled ubuntu and now i dont have access to some partitions since they are owned by the root account04:56
billyJordan_U?04:56
szx0When configuring software RAID... how many HD should I create?04:57
ThreeFingerPeteJl, you normally dont access them. give yourself su if you wish to04:57
szx0When configuring software RAID... how many HD (* correction MD)  should I create?04:57
xtknightszx0, well in any case make sure your /boot partition is not a raid partition04:57
Jordan_Ubilly, I don't know :( I am curious why you were never offered the standard options for broadcom cards from restricted manager though04:57
xtknightszx0, an MD is just a partition04:57
billyJordan_U: yeah.. i dunno..04:57
billy7.1004:57

MrPiracywhere can i enable phisics feature in kiba-dock settings?04:58
=== jms1989 is now known as jms1989__
xtknightszx0, well probably one for / and one for /home at maximum04:58
billyi hope a restart will fix this s***04:58
J1threefingerpete -  not my system partitions or anything. a separate empty partition where i want to save my larger files. only data on it is a folder called "lost and found" (whats that btw?) and i cant access it04:58
billybrb04:58
xtknightszx0, you really only need a /04:58
xtknightszx0, but i guess you can use RAID for swap.. i dont know if that's a good idea04:58
Bidouhi04:58
ThreeFingerPeteJlL that should be your garbage can04:58
szx0xtknight, so I need to make a MD for every partition that I want for the RAID setup ?04:59
ThreeFingerPeteJl: that should be your garbage04:59
xtknightszx0, correct04:59
szx0xtknight, ok04:59
J1whats the command to change the permissions so i can access that folder?04:59
xtknightszx0, for example md0 can be a partition spanning hd1+hd204:59
ThreeFingerPetextknight: i didnt know a partition could span two drives05:00
Jordan_Ubilly, This is a PCI card, right?05:00
xtknightThreeFingerPete, yup in a raid config05:00

jetsaredimis it possible to reconstruct a raid setup without having the raidtab file?05:01
xtknightlost+found is a directory for recovered chunks from file system checks...i think05:01
xtknightjetsaredim, yup05:01
xtknightjetsaredim, just add the drives to a device with mdadm05:01
J1threefingerpete -  how can i edit the partition so i can use it without problems?05:01
szx0xtknight, so I should make another /boot on both Hard Disks, make it bootable but also don't make a MD for it ?05:01
brad01How do I get a cardbus networking card to work in ubuntu?05:01
jetsaredimxtknight: do you know where I'd be able to find some docs on that?05:01

szx0xtknight, I'm trying to install setup RAID1, I have two 300GB drives, I configured everything in the partitioner like u described...and told it to write it to disk, but now no matter which option I pick from the main menu it just dumps me right back in the partitioner! Is that Ubuntu's way of telling me something isn't right?05:11
xtknightjetsaredim, do update initramfs after assemble i think?  i dont know05:11
xtknightjetsaredim, i think initramfs needs something in raidtab05:12

MrPiracy__mikem: depends on the contents and the free space u have05:14
JJ1xtknight - yeah, since i reinstalled root is the owner and I have only read access05:14
szx0xtknight, well when i goto partion the disks it is asking me what I am going use the partition as... so i change it from ext3 to "physical volume for raid"... but once that option is chosen the mount point (i.e., "/") is gone and I have no where to define that now05:14
tanathmy sound is distorted playing flash videos. i've tried reinstalling it. can anyone help?05:14
JJ1xtknight - and i dunno how to change it05:14
nixboxcrackhead100, oh I mean, which security mode does the wireless router use? WPA, WEP etc?05:14
xtknighttanath, maybe alsa needs a rule for flash, or something, i dont know.  im thinking different Hz .. 44000hz vs 22000 or something causing distortion?05:14
crackhead100it's using wpa 40 bit or something right now.. 0000000000.. a form of that05:14
brad01do you have wpasupplicant?05:15
xtknightszx0, ok well that's fine.  you should designate two partitions as phys vol for RAID05:15
xtknightszx0, then you use the RAID partitioner that appears at the top.05:15
xtknightszx0, the raid partition has u create an MD device.  this md device's mountpoint can be set05:15
tanathxtknight, sounds like a possibility. sounds like what i imagine that might sound like05:16
crackhead100nixbox: you get that?05:16
tanathxtknight, i seem to have two versions of flash though. my firefox install is pointing to a different revision number and it works fine05:16

xtknighttanath, what do you mean...05:17
xtknighttanath, which one doesnt work ?05:17
crackhead100well, i was using wireless assistant.. but it doesn't work.. i try iwconfig and it sets fine.. but then i try to get a lease from the router and get a connection, and it doesnt.. just 255.255.255.255 during dhcpdiscover or whatever.. and then no leases.. sleeping..05:18
crackhead100nixbox:05:18
tanathxtknight, the one firefox points to works fine. the installed one from ubuntu, which is used by epiphany doesn't05:18
xtknighttanath, ahh i see05:18
tanathxtknight, i generally use epiphany though05:18
xtknighttanath, well i say just upgrade them both05:18
xtknighttanath, epiphany uses mozilla plugin architecture does it not05:18
Rugcrackhead100: have you tried manually setting the IP info?05:18
tanathxtknight, it's the latest version05:18
tanathxtknight, the firefox one is slightly older, but works05:18
prettyrickyHey guys what can I use to increase the hard drive space since I only allowed 10 gig for the installation of ubuntu. Is there anything that I can repartition my drive?05:18
xtknighttanath, ah well i hate to say it but u could use the older one for epiphany also.  are they both flash 9 a?05:18
xtknightflash 9*05:18
tanathxtknight, firefox is a dependency of it...05:18
tanathxtknight, both flash 9...05:19
Rugprettyricky: qtparted, or gparted05:19
nixboxcrackhead100, how have you specified the security key using ubuntu?05:19
prettyrickyany of those work?05:19
xtknighttanath, weird.  how did you end up with two revisions05:19
prettyrickywhere do I get them at?05:19
Frogzooprettyricky: if there's space at the end of the partition, you can boot a live cd, and use gparted to grow the fs05:19
tanathxtknight, y'know, i'm not even sure why firefox is using an older version, or where it is, lol05:19
crackhead100nixbox: what do you mean? i set it in the iwconfig and then also i tried it in the wirelessassistant program..05:19
tanathxtknight, dunno. i obviously installed it a while ago and forgot05:19
xtknighttanath, heh im thinking maybe u downloaded a flash from adobe..but then wouldnt that be newer05:19
Rugprettyricky: apt-get install, or through synaptic05:19
prettyrickyis it user friendly?05:20

DrBanzaibazhang: Load Average: 0.51 0.39 0.24  pidgin is using 4%...that's the highest06:21
klwthx06:21
iceswordfanin, you put that cd in drive ,if it is right,choose that livecd install,the first one,06:22
bazhangDrBanzai: that is odd; if you turn off compiz what are the results-- alt-f2 metacity --replace06:22

bazhangmasaka: I have one of those cards the acx111 cards and have had very mixed results; in edgy it worked and feisty not, gave up and got a new card for gutsy and have not looked back--open up a terminal and type ifconfig and see if the card is recognized06:25
DrBanzaibazhang: It's a little bit faster...8 seconds of "Starting Terminal" Then 4 seconds of nothing06:25
masakabazhang: it's working now, sorry for the confusion06:25
bazhangDrBanzai: what video card and what driver for getting compiz more in sync--its good that it is faster but still waaaay too slow06:25

jscinozWhat is the vga mode for 1280x800 32bit?06:26
DrBanzaibazhang: GeForce 7300 GS 256MB PCI-E 16x, and how do I check the driver?06:26
faninicesword: ?06:26
iceswordfanin, what is wrong06:27
bazhangklw if you put in the live cd then the installer for gutsy should see your vista install and ask you if want to resize the drive for the install, it will then add vista to the boot menu (grub) and then you can choose between the two at startup06:27
faninicesword: just wondering what you mean.. "here you go"?06:27
iceswordfanin, i mean you can go to windows ,if you don't like linux06:28
ReXiobazhang: oh thx! that helped me too xD06:28
bazhangDrBanzai: that is the exact same card I have and a slew of recent updates ruined my video, had to reinstall the drivers--are you able to view video no problem?06:28
DrBanzaibazhang: BTW, everything works perfectly fine once launched.06:28
DrBanzaiExcept youtube, yes06:28
bazhangDrBanzai: then there is a serious memory leak--and youtube not working has been fixed you just need to reinstall the flash plug in nonfree06:29
faninicesword: i love linux but i have two other machines with ubuntu.. i just want to know how i can get the boot thing to work06:29
iceswordfanin, what boot thing06:29

It is giving me an error when I try to change appearance, saying "Unable to start the settings manager 'gnome-settings-daemon'" - could one of the updates be causing this?07:01

bazhangskull-DT: what do you have installed already07:09
skull-DTI want to add XP as a third07:09
Andre^I think you just have to install xp and add it to grub config07:10
skull-DTbut if I install XP wont it take over the boot system07:10
Andre^(if you use it as boot manager)07:10
bazhangskull-DT: then you should ask in windows; it really is better to have both the windows systems first here is a link http://lifehacker.com/software/ubuntu/hack-attack-how-to-tripleboot-windows-xp-vista-and-ubuntu-193474.php07:10

ZXC314hello everyone07:24
diegosouzaZXC314, hello07:24
ZXC314I have a question for anyone who is willing to help07:25
ZXC314I am a really new ubuntu user07:25
DritzenShoot07:25
speeddemon8803Zxc4314, please ask your question :)07:25
ZXC314trying to do a fresh install on a Dell Dimension 240007:25
billydoes anyone know much about the bcm43xx issues?07:25
diegosouzaZXC314, ok07:25
ZXC314(always love the open source community so helpful)07:25
ZXC314anyway07:25
MeshezabeelxTheGoat121x, what is your audio problem? I also have audio problems.07:25
ZXC314i go to the start or install option once the gui comes up07:26
Dritzenbilly: I really hope you get that fixed, you're persistent, so good for you man.  I hope the new Ubuntu has that stuff built right in for ya07:26
ZXC314then it pulls up the Ubuntu thing and loading screen07:26
diegosouzaZXC314, ok, go more specific07:26
ZXC314anyway after the orange bar goes back and forth for a while and we start loading from left to right07:26
billyDritzen: yeah.. im an "autodidact" if thats how you spell it..07:26
ZXC314it gets about 75% of the way07:27
ZXC314then stops07:27
ZXC314(cd drive stops totally)07:27
ZXC314just sits there07:27
billyDritzen: anyways, when i do iwconfig, everything pops up, the only thing wrong is that no wireless networks show up...07:27
ZXC314any ideas?07:27
diegosouzaZXC314, dell dimension 2400 is a notebook ?07:27
speeddemon8803i have that same issue, except mine doesnt even get that far zxv314....oh wait...um...not that bad.07:27
xTheGoat121xWell... what happens is that when I boot, I get system sounds, and things like pidgin IM sounds, but if I try to play music or games, terminal informs me that the device is unavailable.07:27
ZXC314it's a desktop07:27
DritzenHm.. to be honest, I don't even use a wireless card in Ubuntu, so I don't have much experience with it07:27
MeshezabeelWhen I play audio in a java program it usually clips off the first half second and last half second of the audio file.07:28
crowI got 3 partitions on my disc. 1 ubuntu, 1 xp(fat32), and one neutral(fat32). my windows reads the two fat32 partitions, but my ubuntu reads only it's own partition, and the one windows is installed. how do I mount the neutral one, so ubuntu could read it?07:28
xTheGoat121xI've noticed a call from sh to pulseaudio in my running processes, and if i kill it, I get my sound card back.07:28
billyanyone else?07:28
Andre^hm, I think I need to know where find a config file that runs gnome apps at login07:28
diegosouzaZXC314, have u ever took a look about parameters to boot?07:28
Andre^so I can comment/remove gnome-panels07:28
ZXC314diegosouza, no i haven't07:28
ZXC314diegosouza, not even sure what that is07:29
prince_jammysZXC314: how much RAM ?07:29
crowanyone?07:29
DritzenxTheGoat121x:  I wonder if you are using OSS drivers instead of ALSA?  The old OSS drivers could only have one audio source at a time, so anything using sound would cause other programs to not be able to access your soundcard07:29
bazhangbilly try to bring the card up with sudo dhclient eth1 (this may disconnect your ethernet though)07:29
billywhatam i looking for bahzang?07:29
diegosouzaZXC314, before u start u can press the Function keys (F1, F2, F3...) to read some interesting things07:30
prince_jammysZXC314: i've seen this problem before online, specifically with Dell Dimension.  I think I even had this problem myself installing Ubuntu on one of those07:30
ZXC3141024mb07:30
ZXC314also known as a GB07:30
ZXC314haha07:30
speeddemon8803prince_jammys, ive had it07:30
prince_jammysyeah07:30
diegosouzahehehe07:30
DritzenxTheGoat121x:  do you know the name of your soundcard in /etc/ ?  Is it /etc/dsp or what is it referenced as?  You can type fuser /etc/nameofyoursoundcard and it'll show what programs are using it at the time  (same goes for fuser /media/cdrom  to see what is using your cdrom, etc)07:30
xTheGoat121xDritzen, nope.  I'm using ALSA, I know this for a fact.  It's that sh call that's killing me, and I don't know how to trace it down.07:30
ZXC314so any suggestions07:30
billybahzang: it said no working leases in persistent database - sleeping07:30
speeddemon8803prince_jammys, i think we have all eventually ran into that at one time or another, could be wrong.07:30
diegosouzaZXC314, to do as a geek, google it and find the reason  :-p07:31
ZXC314not sure where to start though that's the problem I guess07:31
bazhangZXC314: you can try with the acpi=off boot parameter or try booting in safe mode07:31
diegosouzaZXC314, there are a lot of blogs solving that king of problem07:31
pufffirefox crashed ubuntu, I rebooted, started firefox, restored my session, it crashed again.  Anybody know how I could just list the open URLs from the shell, and then start firefox fresh?07:31
billybahzang: it said no working leases in persistent database - sleeping07:31
prince_jammysZXC314: i second that, unless someone here knows. there's also the alternate CD07:31
Dritzenpuff:  Don't restore your session then07:31
bazhangbilly are there any wireless hotspots where you are07:32
Dritzenpuff:  Ah, didn't see that second part.. not sure about that07:32
speeddemon8803somene else here has possible solutions ZXC314, i would try them before going to google.07:32
billybazhang:im connected to wireless on this comp right now07:32
bazhanggoogle is if here fails07:32
ZXC314all good points07:32
billybazhang: but the ubuntu comp wont find anything..07:32
ZXC314like I said just not sure where to start I guess07:32
ere4sitrying to listen to streaming radio and only have a choice of win media player or real player - what can I use in ubuntu for this?07:32
speeddemon8803exactly07:32
skull-DTI also have a Xubuntu question07:32
xTheGoat121xDritzen, how would I figure out which one is my sound card?07:33
ZXC314being that I basically have no prior linux knowledge07:33
billybazhang: and its a totally unsecured network...07:33
crowI got 3 partitions on my disc. 1 ubuntu, 1 xp(fat32), and one neutral(fat32). my windows reads the two fat32 partitions, but my ubuntu reads only it's own partition, and the one windows is installed. how do I mount the neutral one, so ubuntu could read it?07:33
ZXC314i tried other distros07:33
ZXC314mandriva, xubuntu, and even linspire07:33
ZXC314all booted to a live cd just fine07:33
evilduckyskull-DT, there is a #xubuntu too if you like07:33
prince_jammysZXC314: it looks from what i'm seeing online that the alternate CD will do it07:33
bazhangere4si: for shoutcast and the like?07:33
prince_jammys!alternate | ZXC31407:33
billybazhang: im totally stuck.. i don't know what to do from here...07:33
ubotuZXC314: The Alternate CD is a classical text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD.  Look for the alternate checkbox on the Ubuntu download page - See also !minimal07:33
billybazhang: it should be working07:34
psilocydei get verry low sound with my intel-hda on gutsy07:34
ere4sibazhang, it is the abc radio in aus...07:34
psilocydeasla mixer master is at 00 and wont budge07:34
ZXC314ubotu, that is so weird though, live cd works on my dell laptop (inspiron 8500) and the dimension is just a P4 with a gig of ram nothing special or odd07:35
billybazhang: any ideas?07:35
prince_jammysZXC314: ubotu is a robot.07:35
ere4sibazhang, Choose a stream from below and click on the link. The media player of your choice should pop up and begin to play the stream. - and the choices are wmp or real07:35
puffI'm gonna have to back up all of my user files and do a fresh ubuntu install, sometime RSN.07:35
speeddemon8803!ubotu | zxc31407:35
ubotuzxc314: I am ubotu, all-knowing infobot. You can browse my brain at http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi - Usage info: http://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBots07:35
psilocydehow do i find out if there is a driver installed for it?07:35
bazhangbilly you were talking about downgrading from your updates--I hope you did not try to do that07:35
prince_jammysZXC314: i'd say that unless you get a specific answer here, the alternate CD is a good solution07:35
ZXC314oh weird (about ubotu)07:36
billybazhang: i did a total reinstall, then didn't install the upgrades07:36
speeddemon8803I second that prince_jammys07:36
ZXC314does the alternate solve a lot of odd issues?07:36
prince_jammysspeeddemon8803: :)07:36
speeddemon8803ZXC314, yes07:36
ryzkaryzka07:36
DritzenxTheGoat121x:  If you go to System, Preferences, Hardware information, then find your soundcard and go to Advanced, it will show you the device name.  For example, mine is called /etc/snd/seq07:36
bazhangere4si: have you tried rhythmbox or amarok for that?07:36
ZXC314interesting07:36
diegosouzaZXC314, talk to ubotu... he's a cool bot hehehe07:36
ZXC314I'll have to read about the alternate cd then07:36
Eldaquick question :s  Where would I find the gedit program on my hard drive?  I am trying to modify the registry setting so that in wine I can use that to bring up my text files instead of having the wine version of notepad to see if that can be done07:36
Daisuke_Idopuff: take a look at ~/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/sessionstore.js07:36
ZXC314hmmm riiiiiiight07:36
prince_jammysZXC314: yeah the bot has the answers to certain FAQs and is invoked by keywords. i did !alternate and he told you the message07:37
speeddemon8803if your computer has less than the recommended ammount of ram for ubuntu, the alternative cd is your best friend...or xubuntu.07:37
bazhangalt f2 gedit Elda07:37
ere4sibazhang, r/box and vlc and nothing happens after they open07:37
skull-DTok thanx evil07:37
EldaBut WHERE on the hd is it located?07:37
crowcan anyone help me?07:37
billybazhang: i started from complete scratch, reinstalled from livecd and everything, installed the drivers like i did before, and it didn't work..07:37
EldaI know how to run it, lol07:37
speeddemon8803crow, did you tell us what you needed help with before?07:37
psilocydelow sound on my laptop under kubuntu 7.10? anyone?07:37
EldaIm trying to find where it is located though so I can edit the registry of wine to point to there when I open txt files07:37
crowI got 3 partitions on my disc. 1 ubuntu, 1 xp(fat32), and one neutral(fat32). my windows reads the two fat32 partitions, but my ubuntu reads only it's own partition, and the one windows is installed. how do I mount the neutral one, so ubuntu could read it?07:37
ZXC314does anyone know any good small channels to chat with people about unbuntu07:37
prince_jammysZXC314: it's also not necessarily a RAM issue.  I have had the same problem with a Dell Dimension, using the Live CD. But the alternate CD should work07:37
billybazhang: ubuntu completely recognizes the card and the drivers are running, but i just cant connect to the internet or see any networks07:37
crowI did 2 times, this is 3th time07:37
Daisuke_IdoElda: which gedit07:38
DritzenxTheGoat121x:  Actually, I found some other devices in /dev/snd07:38

Daisuke_Idoyou're welcome Elda07:38
xTheGoat121xDritzen, all right, hold on a second.07:39

puffDaisuke_Ido:07:39
puffDaisuke_Ido: domo.07:39
bazhangbilly no real experience with that card first hand--if the wiki does not help and you have blacklisted the driver and completely followed the ndiswrapper steps then not sure what to tell you07:39
prince_jammysZXC314: as for the other chat question: #ubuntu-offtopic07:40
xTheGoat121xDritzen, only strings I get are /sys/devices/     strings07:40
DritzenxTheGoat121x:  I went to /dev/snd and typed:  fuser *   and it showed me that pcmC0D0p:             8495m    I'm running Exaile and playing audio through it, and I did ps aux | grep exaile and 8495 is the process ID, so that's how I can tell that exaile is using my audio07:40

prince_jammysZXC314: that deals with general ubuntu-related (but not support related) stuff07:40
billyalright well i need to get to bed.. gnight all07:40
ZXC314any idea how to add people as "friends" with irc (I'm new to that too)07:40
bazhangbilly I meant the reverse07:40
Flyerfyeguys07:41
Flyerfyennvm07:41
xTheGoat121xDritzen, aha, got it.  However, the problem still arises that I07:41
Daisuke_Idopuff: was that what you were looking for?07:41
xTheGoat121xdon't know how to stop said process from running.07:41
prince_jammysZXC314: that probably depends on the IRC app you're using.  check the help page for that app or specify which IRC client you use and someone might know07:41
ZXC314that seems fair07:42
bazhangZXC314: the best way is to choose who is *not* a friend and put them on /ignore ;]07:42
DritzenxTheGoat121x:  The people that made fuser were clever.  It shows you what is accessing the device you inquire about.  However, you can use fuser -k devicename   and it'll KILL (stop) the process that is accessing it.   so for my example, if I typed fuser -k /dev/snd/pcmC0D0p   it will kill whatever program is accessing my soundcard07:42
xTheGoat121xDritzen, that's pretty cool.  I never knew about that prog.07:43
DritzenxTheGoat121x:  To be honest, I just learned about it recently myself :)07:43
diegosouzaZXC314, first of all register your user, so u can chat private messages07:44
puffDaisuke_Ido: Yeah, now I just need to figure out how to parse it.07:44
ZXC314diegosouza, don't know how to register your user?07:44
bazhang!register07:44
ubotuBy default, only registered users can send private messages - Information about registering your nickname: http://freenode.net/faq.shtml#userregistration - Type « /nick <nickname> » to select your nickname.07:44
puffDaisuke_Ido: Actually I'm thinking about taking a quick swack at writing a script (preferably perl) to extract the URLs from it,.07:44
ZXC314(I know I know I'm hopeless)07:44
diegosouzabazhang, youre quick  ;-)07:45
DritzenxTheGoat121x:  You could always write a simple bash script as well, to do that command before running your game, for example.07:45
Jigshello there everyone... i am having problem mounting my windows partition.. any idea how to mount it again.. ?07:45
xTheGoat121xDritzen, that's exactly what I'm doing right now, actually... LMAO!07:45

jackieHow can I reinstall libgtk without removing all dependent applications08:03
Jigsprince_jammy: ok ok08:03
prince_jammysJigs: first you have to create a directory where you want the partition mounted.  for example /media/windows08:04
bazhangCew27: do you see the screen start or install ubuntu?08:04
skull-DTis it possible to assign the Scale Compiz-fusion effect to a mouse button instead of the weird keyboard combinations??08:04
Jigsprince_jammy: k08:04
prince_jammysJigs: like this::  mkdir /media/windows08:04
prince_jammysJigs: sudo mkdir /media/windows08:04
Cew27yeh08:04
bazhangskull-DT: not sure about that; I always just assign a screen corner (eg top right) for that08:05
Cew27bazhang: no wait all i see is start ubuntu there is no install option08:05
Dritzenskull-dt:  I use the corners of my screen08:05
skull-DTohh good idea08:05
skull-DThow do I do that?08:05
bazhangCew27: there should be some options at the bottom of the screen f2 etc do you see them?08:05
Jigsprince_jammy: ok windows dir created, i can see it now in the media dir where i was now mean am in the filesystem08:05
Dritzenskull-dt: Press alt-f2 and type ccsm08:06
bazhangskull-DT: go to the plugin click it in the ccsm and then assign the screen corner you want under keybindings08:06
prince_jammysJigs ok now:: gksudo gedit /etc/fstab         and a text editor should pop up with the fstab file08:06
skull-DTok let me try that08:06
ZXC314bazhang, the info you gave me the link to tells me stuff but not how to actually register the name08:06
ZXC314just the password and my e-mail and stuff08:06
Jigsprince_jammy: yeah its open now08:07
prince_jammysJigs: any particular permissions you want to set? read-write, etc?08:07
gnychisi want to use the Guided disk space partition option, but I want to format as reiserfs, not ext3 ... is there any way to simply change this without having to manually setup all the partitions?08:07
Cew27bazhang: im not on the live cd now but im sure i will be able to what do i do from there can you type a little list of instructions08:07
Dritzenskull-dt:  Once CCSM is open, go to scale, Actions, General, and you can set the screen corner settings there.  I use bottom right for window picker for all windows, and then I use the bottomleft corner for the plugin called "expo", it works well08:07
Jigsprince_jammy: this is the place where i have to put the partition of windows?08:08
skull-DTnice it worked!08:08
skull-DTthanks I lke it like this08:08
skull-DTits nice08:08
bazhangZXC314: try this: /msg nickserv register <your-password>08:08
skull-DTthank you guys08:08
prince_jammysJigs: yes, i'll paste the line for you after you answer a couple of questions08:08
ZXC314is that for my actual nick name not "you-password" as it would suggest?08:08
prince_jammysJigs: do you want to read and write to the partition or just read?08:08
bazhangZXC314: then this /msg nickserv set hide email on08:08
Jigsprince_jammy: do i have to answer the first question?08:08
Dritzenskull-dt:  This guy wrote a pretty nice compiz guide, check it out  http://forlong.blogage.de/article/2007/8/29/How-to-set-up-Compiz-Fusion08:09
bazhangZXC314: no choose a password08:09
prince_jammysJigs: huh?08:09
Jigsprince_jammy: oh well nvm08:09
ZXC314got it got it08:09
ZXC314so now that i fucked that up08:09
Jigsprince_jammy: just go ahead, whats next?08:09
skull-DTok Dritzen I'll check it out thx08:09
ZXC314so i can make my password something else how do i do that08:09
bazhangZXC314: then finally this08:09

bazhang    /msg nickserv set email <your-email-address>08:09

Jigsprince_jammys: i got 100008:10
unimatrix9i have an older ubuntu version wich does not have lstree, is there an way to get it installed?08:10
prince_jammysJigs: ok, now i missed whether you want to be able to write to this partition08:11
Jigsprince_jammys: just wanna used the windows partition in normal way08:11
Dritzenunimatrix9:  I'm running 7.10 and I don't seem to have lstree either, let's see08:11
prince_jammysJigs: ok after the last line in the fstab file you opened, paste the line i'm about to post08:12
unimatrix9i treid apt-get install lstree, but that did not work , either08:12
bazhangCew27: you still around? the boot parameters (cant remember the exact one atm) are listed at the bottom of that screen and one of the choices is boot apci=off choose that then try continuing08:12

unimatrix9i know its old, but rock solid...:)08:13
skull-DTby the way, whats a splash screen?08:13
Dritzenunimatrix9:  I didn't find any reference to lstree by using apt-cache search lstree , nor did I find it in synaptic.  I found a page on sun's website,  http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/jsp/descFile.jsp?url=descAll/lstree_print_direct    however, I haven't used this, not sure how much I'd trust it08:13
Jigsprince_jammys: ok done, but what is umask=002?08:13
Cew27bazhang: ok will do what does that change/do ?08:13

vawkselIs there a key to push to active the "Start" menu -- I am on LinuxMint (Gnome).   I tried the Windows key, no go.08:14
Jigsprince_jammys: ok nice ncie08:14
Dritzenunimatrix9:  I know pstree is installed by default for sure :)08:14
unimatrix9ah , okey, that good too08:14
unimatrix9thanks for the tip08:14
DASPRiDJigs, umask is the oposite of chmod, see: 777 - 00208:14
prince_jammysJigs: make sure the last line in fstab is blank (ie there is one empty line at the very end)08:15
bazhangCew27: that may solve the issue you are having, though just as a failsafe you may want to check out the alternate cd and stay away from Mint (its slow) ;]08:15
unimatrix9cool, yeah thats it...08:15
unimatrix9thanks again08:15
vawkselbazhang, mint is slow?08:15
Dritzenunimatrix9:  no problem08:15
prince_jammysJigs: make sure the line is exactly like the one i pasted, and save the file08:15
vawkselhrm08:15
Jigsprince_jammys: already check, same as the last line b4 i put the new string..08:15
Gattoni didn't find mint any slower than ubuntu08:15
Cew27bazhang: mint is slow?! all teh reviews i have heard say its faster than ubuntu08:15
vawksel Is there a key to push to active the "Start" menu -- I am on LinuxMint (Gnome).   I tried the Windows key, no go.08:16
bazhangvawksel: yes, afraid so; why have mint when you can get the original? ;]08:16
vawkselbazhang: mint is slow?08:16
vawkselbazhang: hrm08:16
Dritzenvawksel:  Press alt-f108:16
unimatrix9bye all08:16
DASPRiDvawksel, exchange the windows key with a linux key ;)08:16
prince_jammysJigs: ok you can close the editor and go to a terminal and type:::  sudo mount /media/windows08:16
Jigsprince_jammys: already checked, no emptry line there08:16
Gattonoriginal? heh you mean Debian? ;-)08:16
prince_jammysJigs: if there's no empty line, hit enter after the last line so you have a blank line at the bottom08:17
vawkselhrm, Alt-F1 seems to mostly do the trick.08:17
Dritzenvawksel:  Alt-F1 is the Gnome shortcut to get the applications menu open.  You could go into the gnome keyboard shortcuts section and rebind it I suppose08:17
bazhangvawksel: and Cew27 from long personal experience it is slower but this is better suited for #ubuntu-offtopic ;]08:17
DASPRiDDritzen, i wouldn't do that, <super> is the standard key for most compiz operations08:17
DritzenDASPRiD:  I was thinking that it would be a major pain in the butt, personally but who knows if he's using compiz at all08:18
vawkselWell, Alt-F1 launches the app menu, but not the same functionality.  I want the search box, so I can type "net" and see NetBeans appear... I tried using Alt-F1, it doesn't go to NetBeans, but typing "Calc" does show the calculator08:18
Jigsprince_jammys: Mount is denied because NTFS is marked to be in use. Choose one action:08:18
prince_jammysJigs: so it's already mounted?08:18
prince_jammysJigs: wait08:19
prince_jammysJigs: type:: pwd08:19
Dritzenvawksel:  The run command is Alt-F2 but I don't think it autocompletes commands for you08:19
vawkselDritzen: maybe this is a linux mint thing?   In the main "menu", there is a search box, you type and the results on the right in real time whittle down.08:19
ArthurArchnix!mint | vawksel08:19
ubotuvawksel: The following are some examples of Ubuntu derived distributions that we cannot provide support for due to repository and software changes, please consult their websites for more information: gNewSense (support in #gnewsense), Linux Mint (support in #linuxmint), LinuxMCE (support in #linuxmce), Ubuntu Ultimate08:19

Jigsprince_jammys: i can see the drive but like what  ive said recently theres an error ,  "cannot mount volume"08:20
vawkselArthurArchnix: true -- I was thinking this was universal for gnome/ubuntu though08:20
Dritzenvawksel:  I think it's Linuxmint, it doesn't look anything like that in Ubuntu, at least not for me personally08:20
vawkselArthurArchnix: maybe i'll uninstall linux mint then and go straight ubuntu.08:20
vawkselDritzen: ah ok, that makes more sense then.08:20
prince_jammysJigs: if you have any file browser that is presently inside that directory, move out of it. if you have any terminal inside that directory, type ::  cd08:20
vawkselDritzen: well, it's a really slick feature, ubuntu dev's should copy it ;-)08:21
prince_jammysJigs: it can'08:21
vawkselDritzen: its kinda like QuickSilver (OS X) if you know what im talking about08:21
prince_jammysJigs: it can't be mounted while that folder is open08:21
Dritzenvawksel:  Sure.  Sounds like a useful feature, I hope they do copy it08:21
Gattonvawksel, yep it's a neat feature. i'm using gnome-do to get similar functionality08:21
Jigsprince_jammys: o ic, i'll check it08:21
vawkselGatton: gnome-do?  I haven'e heard of that.08:22

mkquistspeart: btw, ive done that in the past, but w/the proc speeds as they are now, I just don't see much point...08:52

wolsmkquist: getting a 3GHz cpu for 60EUR08:52
speartmkquist, I know what to do, I run mem test and my motherboard bios is quite extensive. I run boinc and various java ides, there is a great speed boost for a 500MHZ dual core oc.08:53
mkquistwols: well, uno your trying to cheat, now... idk... past me i think (speed is sooo cheap i think)08:53
wolsmkquist: my wallet of course!08:53
boohooprince_jammys: but if a file in a non-readable directory is world-readable, is it really world readable?08:53
boohooor only by the people who can enter the directory?08:53
speartit's nice to have desktop tools for tracking the system08:53
prince_jammysboohoo: it could have to do with conflicting permissions in your user/group (a guess)08:53
mkquistspeart: last time i bothered it was like and amd k6-2 350, ran at like 550, but I just don't see the need anymore... so g/l with that..  IMHO it's just easier to upgrade08:54
prince_jammysboohoo: my understanding was that you could access it directly, even if the parent dir is not readable. but i definitely could be wrong on that08:54

simplexioallorder: it dosn't need it09:09
prince_jammys!firewall | allorder09:10
ubotuallorder: Ubuntu, like any other linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'iptables' command (see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo), or GUI applications such as Firestarter (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE).09:10
simplexioallorder: and iptbles is there09:10
pecisk_allorder: would be nice to have, but there is no real pressure to do it, as Ubuntu follow zero ports open policy by default09:10
allorderiptables isnt user friendly09:10
simplexioallorder: try firestarter09:10
wolsallorder: a firewall is not for users?09:10
pecisk_allorder: install Firestarter09:10
simplexioallorder: firewall settings shouldn't be something that users config09:10
bazhangsudo apt-get install firestarter allorder ;]09:10
allorderthx but why it doesnt need it09:11
simplexioallorder: no open ports as default09:11
ThreeFingerPeteallorder: some users might open ports and then need a firewall09:12
pecisk_allorder: because there is no open ports by default and all security issues, if there are any, aren't related to firewall.09:12
sysadmin-lb22does ipw2200 on ubuntu support injection ? or do I have to patch it ?09:12
allorderya but unknown security issue will be protected with firewall..09:13
mkquistallorder: firewall is part of linux, so u don't need to worry about it unless u need to manually configure..  It's called iptables09:13
Gattonnighters09:13
bazhangallorder this is not ##windows ;]09:13
pecisk_allorder: says who? with no ports open, there is nothing for firewall to protect09:13
pecisk_allorder: uknown security problem can be only local user root exploit, DoS, etc.09:14
pecisk_allorder: using user locally09:14

abujanahi09:15
ThreeFingerPetequestion: does wine suffer from windows virii?09:15
simplexioallorder: you cant open ports under 1000 without root permissions, and even if "user" installs some program that allows access, attacker would have only users permissions09:16
pecisk_allorder: Ubuntu justs respects user whishes and don't control it because it "thinks" that user knows what to do09:16

Squawkcrackhead100_, ok its not firewall, so have to look elsewhere09:29
crackhead100_pecisk_: a belkin usb wireless adapter. very simple.09:29
pecisk_crackhead100_: what chipset?09:30
Squawkcrackhead100_, can you do iwlist interfacename scan?09:30
crackhead100_Squawk: i'm all ears..09:30

Squawkcrackhead100_, basicaly that should see if you can see the connection09:30
=== josh_ is now known as Joshyboy
DASPRiDgold44, you mean not use 21 as default, dont you?09:30
neohow do i install themes in ubuntu?09:30
Joshyboyi love ubuntu09:30
crowSquawk, how do I see the partid?09:30
crackhead100_Squawk: i can see the proper network essid with the scan.09:31
gold44DASPRiD: no, 69 T ftpd, not ftpd.09:31
DASPRiDgold44, now i'm confused, thanks09:31
Squawkcrackhead100_, check wep password, nothing wrong then that I can think of immediately09:31
crowSquawk, u said somth like /dev/hda3, how can I know for sure?09:31
pecisk_gold44: about xinetd, if you have installed it - which I doubt now - then you should have /etc/xinetd.conf which is general config and /etc/xinet.d/ which is seperated config files for each of services. It would be better to keep it that way :)09:31
gold44DASPRiD: TFTPD not FTPD09:31
Squawkcrow, can you do "sudo fdisk" and then press "p", and show me the results ina  pm (probably about 5 lines of text)09:31
neohow do i install themes in ubuntu?09:32
crackhead100_Squawk: i know the password is correct09:32
DASPRiDgold44, ok nvm, understood it wrong, stay with tftpd :)09:32
gold44pecisk buntu default install, never gave me xinetd09:32
mkquistnoe, have u tried system/pref/appearance?09:32
mkquistneo: sry last for u...09:32
pecisk_gold44: exactly, because xinetd by default would be very huge security issue :)09:32
pecisk_gold44: install it09:32
mkquistneo: check system/preferences/appearance09:33
pecisk_gold44: sudo apt-get install xinetd09:33
sarah__hi, im in network manager, and i hit unlock then change some stuff, then when it should reload it says "The configuration could not be saved You are not allowed to modify the system configuration ()" even though i have sudo privliges, could it be my write access to the config file was removed somehow? how do i find out where it is and fix that?09:33
DASPRiDtoday is a good day to fry09:33
pecisk_gold44: but first check if you really really need it09:33
Squawkcrackhead100_, do you have dhcp server configured correctly in your net config? tbh I havnt done this under ubuntu (only gentoo) so not sure where the config is kept09:33
crackhead100_Squawk: the server is a router. where else is my server configured? I dont kno what you mean09:33
gold44pecisk_: no i don't. i just found a link for tftpd. let me try that first09:33
crowSquawk, http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/57799/09:33
pecisk_gold44: wait, just install it with apt-get09:33
neowhere do i download the themes from??/        in which format   ????   i downloaded a theme and it said that format was invalid09:34
Squawkcrackhead100_, I mean where did you configure your wireless? YOu must have config file, can you show me it?09:34
crackhead100_Squawk: i can actually get a connection from another ubuntu machine, a laptop, through nm-applet09:34
ArthurArchnixYou guys/girls know any good links for settings up a basic hosts file? I want to ease up the load on adblock and I read that the hosts file is even better than adblock (makes browsing faster, etc)09:34
crackhead100_Squawk: which config file do you want to see?09:34
Squawkcrackhead100_, sorry man, should have been more specific. I need you to run "fdisk /dev/hda", or "fdisk /dev/sda" one will give output, one wont09:34
neowhere do i download the themes from??/        in which format   ????   i downloaded a theme and it said that format was invalid09:34
ArelisHi there. Can anybody help me with a complicated problem with my PC that goes further than only Ubuntu? It's about segmentation faults and random crashes in every distribution09:34
Squawkcrackhead100_, anything to do with wireless09:34
crackhead100_Squawk: i didnt do any manual file configs, except for /etc/net*/networkinterfaces.. i added "auto eth1.. iface inet eth1 dhcp"09:35
crackhead100_or whatever properly09:35
mkquistneo: check www.gnome-look.org09:35
ArelisAnd if so, can you please join #helparelis to avoid the overhead of this channel?09:35
Squawkcrackhead100_, ok, hmm09:35
ThreeFingerPetei just tried something and it worked so well i wanted to tell everyone. sudo gedit /etc/make_it_all_work_perfect.conf09:35
ArthurArchnix!hosts09:35
gold44pecisk_: xinetd vs inetd ? one for x i supposed. but other than that, is one newer than the other?09:35
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about hosts - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi09:35
allorder!host09:35
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about host - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi09:35
pecisk_gold44: of course xinetd, because it is more secure09:35
ArelisHi there. Can anybody help me with a complicated problem with my PC that goes further than only Ubuntu? It's about segmentation faults and random crashes in every distribution, and more weird stuff. If so, can you please join #helparelis to help me?09:36
achilles616hello everyone09:36
Squawkcrackhead100_, what does ifconfig interfacename give?09:36
gold44pecisk_: ok, usually, i prefer to install non X stuff. that's ONE dependence less09:36
pecisk_gold44: by the way, you can install tftpd by apt-get install tftpd09:36
SquawkArelis, seg faults accross distributions suggest bad RAM, check your RAM with memtest09:36
gold44pecisk_: am already running tftpd-hpa09:36
pecisk_gold44: that name is confusing, it has no way any connection with Xorg or X-Windows09:36
ArelisSquawk: i already did that. Also spinrite, so it's not the harddisk either09:36
pecisk_gold44: nice, so why do you need xinetd then?09:37
neogtk1.0 or gtk2.0    or     should i download special theme for compiz?????         and will ordinary theme work with compiz??????09:37
gold44pecisk_: u told me to install it. and i am hesitant to do so.09:37
simplexioArelis: random segfault usually mean that you have broken hardware09:37
