mouseboyxLjL, no i see maybe it should have another wildcard before it?00:01
nemoAntkin: I'm thinking he should just use the Vista boot loader instead of grub.00:01
nemoif Vista is going to be an ass about this00:01
LjLmouseboyx: going strictly by what you said, i.e. « replace " 660 480" where the numbers are wildcards with "" null », that would be « sed 's/ [[:digit:]]+ [[:digit:]]+//g/'00:01
Pelonemo, vista is an ass about everything00:01

omnisteganHey guys, I seem to have encountered a strange problem. My sound was working fine up until I changed a video setting for a game under wine, then all my sound stopped. Since then I've found that sound works in a few things (totem movie player for example) but not for others (Amarok, firefox, aMSN, log in log out sounds, etc.) any suggestions?00:02
soderqvistusser: now all of a sudden my sound has disappeared. I pressed audio in wine, and it said something about installed drivers. But now Its gone?00:02
LjLmouseboyx: so are you looking to simply every couple of numbers in the file?00:02
[Hardy]TuTUXGLowke1, java not working with ff?00:02

ubotuScreenshots can be made with the [PrtScr] button or the File -> Acquire menu in the GIMP.00:03
Sarahomnistegan: The problem is most likely that wine somehow changed which output goes to which sound card. Try plugging in the other sound card and see if the programs that now give no sound suddenly do.00:03
Lowke1okay pelo00:03
soderqvistMy sound has disapperared, how can I get it to work again?00:03

I want to write on my hdd but i have to sudo -i first and start all programs as root in the xterm (like gedit /mnt/gentoo/home/list.txt instead of using nautilius) to be able to do that. is there a way to automaticly be root in livecd so i can in nautilius doubble click on a textfile, alter it, and and after saving it?00:04
Sarahomnistegan: I would advise disabling the unused sound card completely, barring that, try fidding around with the preferences on your volume icon.00:04
_Oz_antkin: at the risk of getting offtopic there is literally nothing about vista that is an improvement over XP00:05
nemoAntkin: yeah. but it acts differently.  Certainly I'd recommend XP if he had a choice.00:05
mouseboyxThats why there are spaces in between them.00:05
nemo_Oz_: I've done two Vista to XP upgrades for friends in past month :)00:05
LjLmouseboyx: so my command will work.00:05
soderqvistSarah I installed ubuntu today and it worked like 2 hours ago. Now I installed a new version of wine. And in wine theres a "audio" to go to. I pressed it and it said something about installed OSS drivers00:05

Pelo[Hardy]TuTUXG, neither do I but we were out of options , he's getting a msg about either javascript or flash not being installed/enabled , both are ,  options are becoming limited00:07
LjLmouseboyx: anyway, i strongly suggest you ask a better question next time... you mixed a technical term - wildcards - with the idea that you simply wanted a turnkey command. now, what you wanted to do was to *remove every sequence of two space-separated multi-digits numbers*, and that's what you should have asked if you wanted a turnkey solution. if you wanted to learn about regular expressions, you could have asked about wildcards in a general sense. but the00:07
LjLway you asked simply didn't make sense. a space is a character. "wget" is characters. a URL is characters. unless you're used to pretty strange wildcards, asking "how can i change wildcards into nothing" doesn't make any sense.00:07
[Hardy]TuTUXGPelo, so flash is not working neither?00:07
LjL!gq > mouseboyx    (mouseboyx, see the private message from Ubotu)00:07

ZayneHello.. I hope I am in the right place. I'm pretty much at my wit's end, and i've searched the forums and documentation to no avail. I'm hoping someone can help me through a problem with Ubuntu, namely that upon making it to the login screen the graphics become severely garbled, so much that I can not see to even log in. I'm assuming it's due to my video card.00:48

[Hardy]TuTUXGLowke1, then that's easier00:50
Lowke1[Hardy]TuTUXG: good00:50
hischildryjyd, you can disable onboard just by bios?00:50
ryjydhischild: most definintely00:50
ZayneWhen I hit ESC, I didn't see this option. I had a standard boot, and then one for recovery mode, and then a.. i'm not sure. it said memtest or something.00:50

danandsoderqvist - theres probably a nicer way to do this but ... some process is using your soundcard and stopping it from being used. the best thing i can suggest is to reboot the machine :)00:51
hischildryjyd, good luck ... i need some sleep00:51

ironcladlouI am trying to create a launch for a shell script. It's necessary to cd to the directory before executing the script. I've tried making a launcher which does an sh -c "cd dir && ./script.sh", and the launcher does nothing. I've tried making an external script (executable) which does the cd/invocation and making a launcher which points directly to that script, and nothing happens. No output, no process. What am I doing wrong?01:04
amenadoBidou you have a firewall ready to go, it just happens to be that default rules are blank.01:04
DellbuntuStudio5kan KDE and gnome apps run? Can I have the KDE Envirmonet over Gnome?01:04
bruenigDellbuntuStudio5: you can run any app in any window manager01:04
bruenigDellbuntuStudio5: the split between desktop environments is entirely illusory01:04
bruenigit is just a bundle of apps01:05
RyanPrioramenado: That's not his problem. He was worrying that his firewall was interfering with his apps.01:05
Antkinzetheroo what is error 17?01:05
bruenigpeople associate gui with more than they should01:05
BidouMarcN, amenado so wath can i do to resolve my problem ? and connect myself to im.apinc.org ?01:05
Lowke1ok [Hardy]TuTUXG01:05
Lowke1now  i do sudo apt-get update01:05
amenadoRyanPrior-> but to advise him of him not having a firewall is false01:05
[Hardy]TuTUXGLowke1, sudo01:05
[Hardy]TuTUXGLowke1, in terminal: sudo apt-get update01:06
amenadoBidou-> can you resolve any website address like for example   www.google.com01:06
RyanPrioramenado: He has no firewall configured. He may have the capability buried down somewhere, but that's like saying you've got a ready-made nuclear launch system and just haven't configured it yet. It may be true, but it's not practical. :-)01:06
zetherooAntkin: now when booting with the Live CD and checking out the Partitions in Gparted I can no longer see an ext3 partition01:06
[Hardy]TuTUXGLowke1, one question, are u using ff2 or ff3?01:06
Lowke1im not sure01:06
=== tripl is now known as tr1pl
Bidouamenado: i can connect to google but i want to connect to the jabber server im.apinc.org with the gajim client01:06
Lowke1it came with ubuntu 7.1001:06
amenadoRyanPrior you realized iptables is always there?01:06
[Hardy]TuTUXGLowke1, open firefox check help -> about01:07
Bidouamenado: internet works at me01:07
[Hardy]TuTUXGLowke1, ok01:07
amenadoBidou-> can you resolve that address  www.aplawrence.com ?01:07
zetherooAntkin: there is only a huge 60GB NTFS partition, a 7GB Fat32 partition (the compaq recovery partition), and the 600 MB swap01:07
RyanPrioramenado: you realize that the nuclear launch system is always there?01:07
MarcNBidou: you have an ip address from dhcp?  It should have set your dns server (see /etc/resolv.conf)01:07
[Hardy]TuTUXGLowke1, so update done?01:07
Antkinzetheroo you said dual boot is that Windows and Linux?01:07
amenadoRyanPrior-> and your point is?01:07
Bidouamenado: yeah i can go to this site web01:07
Bidouto this website*01:07
zetherooAntkin: any thoughts on the matter? .... seems like linux has just vanished01:07
RyanPrioramenado: I can explain it to you in #ubuntu-offtopic if you'd like. :-)01:08
zetherooAntkin: I said ... Windows Xp and Gutsy01:08
amenadoBidou-> so what is the ip address of im.apinc.org resolve to?01:08
[Hardy]TuTUXGLowke1, sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree01:08
BidouMarcN: no i havn' an ip adress from dhcp01:08
Bidouamenado: euh sorry i dont know01:08
Lowke1flashplugin-nonfree is already the newest version.01:08

amenadoBidou-> dig  im.apinc.org01:08
flatsIs there a way to copy all settings and preferences from 1 user to another?  All desktop settings and icons and such?01:09
MarcNBidou: so you were assigned on by a network admin or did you just pick one?  If so, sounds like you need to manually set your dns servers in /etc/resolv.con01:09
Bidouamenado: i can connect to the website but not to the jabber server01:09
atlefis it possible to replace tracker with google-desktop?01:09
Antkinzetheroo maybe have to install gutsy again but when it comes to the format option leave the files as is01:09
RyanPrioratlef: Yes, it is possible.01:09
amenadoBidou-> so you can resolve, do you really know that their server is up and running? and available for you to connect to?01:09
[Hardy]TuTUXGLowke1, sudo apt-get reinstall flashplugin-nonfree01:09
atlefRyanPrior: even get nautilus to use it01:10
Lowke1E: Invalid operation reinstall01:10
RyanPrioratlef: That might be slightly trickier, but it's still possible.01:10
[Hardy]TuTUXGLowke1, sudo aptitude reinstall flashplugin-nonfree01:10
zetherooAntkin: what do you mean ?.... there was a lot of data on the Linux side..... won't reinstalling Gutsy wipe all that out?01:10
TetracommHow do I connect to a server using the console in Ubuntu?01:10
RyanPrioratlef: The question is, how much hacking are you willing to do to get the level of integration you desire?01:10
Bidouamenado: yeah it's a public jabber server where anybody can register himself and use the service, but i cant use it i dont know why01:10
atlefRyanPrior: ah see, i knew that would be the answer01:10
RyanPriorTetracomm: You use ssh.01:10
MarcNTetracomm: do you mean via ssh?01:10
RugTetracomm: connect how?01:10
Lowke1E: I wasn't able to locate file for the flashplugin-nonfree package. This might mean you need to manually fix this package.01:10
amenadoTetracomm-> different ways, connect like telnet? http? ssh? vnc?01:11
TetracommRug: Just connect.01:11
[Hardy]TuTUXGLowke1, that's wired01:11
atlefRyanPrior: no nautilus scripts maybe01:11
MarcNTetracomm: telnet is insecure and old, use ssh instead.01:11
amenadoTetracomm-> is the server allowing telnet?01:11
[Hardy]TuTUXGLowke1, a sec01:11
RyanPrioratlef: Everything is that way. Ubuntu developers do work to build up levels of integration, but it isn't always easy to just swap one system out for another.01:11
Antkinzetheroo if you use exsisting Linux partitions then you may not lose the data01:11
amenadoBidou-> perhaps its off at the moment and not taking any connections temporarily?01:12
atlefRyanPrior: of course, i understand.01:12
ubotutelnet is not safe. Please use ssh instead. See !ssh01:12
vALIENhey whats linux for?01:12

[Hardy]TuTUXGLowke1, sudo aptitude upgrade01:14
AntkinFree4it Hello do you have a question?01:14
RyanPriorleal: no "standard". You can use swfdec, flash-nonfree, or Gnash.01:14
MarcNBidou: try telneting to the jabber server, something like telnet jabber.whatever 5555  (or whatever the jabber port is)01:14

RyanPriorx89x: I do not know for sure, but Mono-Develop is designed to support C# in general.01:17
lealRyanPrior: actually i just need a standalone player that works with swf8. the official player does, but does not have options (like fullscreen).01:18
Lowke1lazy247x: they have their pros and cons01:18
gbugmiaminot a matter of better, if you need more than 3 gigs ram and have the hardware, use 64. i have and it works.01:18
amenadoStavros-> what do you mean through ssh? you  remotely logged in to a host to upgrade it?01:18
RyanPriorleal: it does have fullscreen. I've used it before with websites like YouTube.01:18
Stavrosamenado: yes01:18
Lowke1lazy247x: i would suggest 3201:19
RyanPriorlazy247x: It depends on your hardware, not your preferences.01:19
zetherooAntkin: well why would someone continue using Linux if they can loose their entire OS and all their data without explanation....01:19
lealRyanPrior: but does not have in command line mode. just in the gui.01:19

lsthbsundsrud all of a sudden01:48
bsundsrudlsth: did you set any new programs to start recently? install anything that you think might cause it?01:48
bsundsrudlsth: to start on login, i meant01:48
jtravnicki cant believe theres no official doc for installing ubuntu01:48
lsthbsundsrud no. i also created a new user and am experiencing the same problem01:48
ks3Darkmystere_, can you ping by ip address?01:48
lsthbsundsrud no01:49
flowOverjtravnick: what is more official than the instructions offered inside the installer?01:49
bsundsrudlsth: I've exhausted all the stuff i can help you with, i use KDE myself.  if you could get to a terminal i think theres something like 'aptitude reinstall <package>', and you could try doing that to the gnome-panel package01:50
flowOveror perhaps even the installation instructions on their website01:50
jtravnickflowOver, would have been nice if somewhere it had told me that it had that im sitting here going through the web site trying to get this to do a dual boot install01:51
Darkmystere_ks3, give me an ip to ping please.01:51
lsthbsundsrud gnome-panel isnt installed according to that command01:51
Darkmystere_ks3, sec seems it disconnected..01:52
bsundsrudlsth: install it... pretty sure its supposed to be there01:52
bsundsrudanyone here have a HP dvX000 series laptop?01:54
lsthbsundsrud ok installing01:54
bsundsrudlsth: ok, not sure how that could get uninstalled but im pretty sure thats one of the main gnome programs :)01:55
lsthbsundsrud thanks!!!01:55
bsundsrudupdate gone awry maybe?01:55

bsundsrudk, make sure nautilus is still installed too :D01:56
Darkmystere_ks3,Every Ping i do it comes back operation not permitted01:56
bsundsrudthats the filemanager, and i think it handles the background pic as well01:56
Darkmystere_ks3,cept if i type www.google.com01:56
nwahsadudewhere do you find add remove software?01:56
bsundsrudlsth what version of ubuntu are you running?01:56
nwahsadudei think 7.401:57
bsundsrudah, i was going to see if you were running hardy alpha, which could cause an update to break things like that01:57
lsthbsundsrud either 7.04 or 7.10. i think 7.0401:57
ks3Darkmystere_, what shows up if you run ls -l `which ping`01:57
bsundsrudoh well, glad that worked for you lsth01:57
Darkmystere_ks3, ls -l then ping <ip here> correct?01:58
ks3nope, just do ls -l `which ping`; backticks and all... if you're getting operation not permitted the permissions on ping may have been set incorrectly01:58

malocitegood evening all :)  - I cannot seem to locate the theme manager in gutsy... does it not install by default02:00
ks3Darkmystere, the permissions on ping should show up as -rwsr-xr-x02:00
jtravnickcan somebody please tell me just where i find the install docs?? I need to make sure i only install over fedora and not my windows partition02:00
ArielMThi there.  for some reason, my swap partition isn't being mounted even though it's listed in /etc/fstab.  exact error is "swapon: /dev/mapper/vg-swap: Invalid argument" and ubuntu version is 7.1002:00

malocitejeffMASTERflex: I thought it was called emerald.... thats what it was the last time I installed gutsy, this is a re-install :)02:01
jtravnickamenado, im not finding one02:01
Darkmystereks3 *eroot sorry for typing so slow but im  typeing what i see from my labtop that has ubuntu on it..02:02
jeffMASTERflexmalocite: you can install the emerald theme manager if you do not have it installed02:02
ks3Darkmystere, no problem. have you done any firewall setup on this box?02:02
pinguanyone know why my wireless is weaker in my linux partition. i have both xp and linux and cannot connect to wireless easily in linux but in xp its is smooth. am i missing something?02:02
Darkmystereks3, nope02:02
Darkmystereks3, although about 3 months ago i tried firestarted but then removed it.02:03
malocitejeffMASTERflex: does it serve any other purpose since there is already this appearance preference thing?02:03
jeffMASTERflexpingu: probably lower quality drivers for your wireless card02:03
pingujeffMASTERflex: can i get better ones? where?02:03
jeffMASTERflexmalocite: emerald is a different window themer. it is actually a separate program used to draw window decorations. you don't need it. you can install regular metacity themes02:04
Darkmystereks3, how do i check and see if an Ip address has been set to my box?02:04
jeffMASTERflexpingu: no, you cannot get better ones02:04
TheManiacKYIs there a way I can easily share my DVDR on my Ubuntu server with my OSX mac ? Besides for making iso files and copying them between the network. Is there some service or somthing I can run that will stream the burn to the burner?02:04
ks3Darkmystere, ip address ls02:04
malocitejeffMASTERflex: cool thanks02:04
pingujeffMASTERflex: are you sure?02:04
jeffMASTERflexpingu: it really depends on the driver. most of the time, you can't search around on google to see if anyone has already solved this issue02:05
zero-jtugh, my screen resolution is messed up and it wont let me fix it02:05
Darkmystereks3, yea inet brd scope global ath0....i can ping my routers ip too..02:05
bsundsrudpingu: what is the wireless card/laptop model?02:05
Darkmystereks3, it acctually gives me data...02:06
pingubsundsrud: laptop-acer aspire 5100, wireless card- 802.11 b/g wireless LAN02:06
ks3Darkmystere, so you can ping your router... how about traceroute -n
zePh7rhi all02:07
bsundsrudpingu: go to a terminal and type lspci02:07
ader10Is there a way I can lower my fan speed?02:07
bsundsrudpingu: then look for the lines that talk about network controllers and tell me the manufacturer02:07
pingubsundsrud: 06:02.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)02:08

Darkmystereks3, traceroute to (, 30 hops max, 40byte packets *next line* send:Operation not permitted02:08
zePh7rI did a "make install" of a snapshot of madwifi in an attempt to put my wireless card to work. Anyway it didn't work out and now I would just like to know if there is anyway I can delete madwifi (this custom installation)02:09
AangFani need some help with the keyboard02:09
bsundsrudbroadcom is very mean about their driver specs, and there aren't any FOSS solutions that are on par with their drivers yet.  some users have had luck with ndiswrapper though02:09
ks3Darkmystere, anything interesting show up with sudo iptables -nvL02:09
bsundsrud!ndiswrapper | pingu02:09
ubotupingu: Wireless documentation can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs02:09
pingubsundsrud: what is FOSS solutions and diswrapper?02:10
bsundsrudpingu: the 4318 and 4311 (which i have) are the worst performers02:10
Darkmystereks3, like what i really dont feel like typing all of that...02:10
AangFanI need desactivate num lock because my keyboard is space saving and hace the num pad integrated to other keys02:10
bsundsrudpingu: FOSS is Free/Open source software.  Ndiswrapper is a program that takes your windows drivers for wireless cards and wraps them so linux can use them02:10
ArielMThi there.  for some reason, my swap partition isn't being mounted even though it's listed in /etc/fstab.  exact error when running "sudo swapon -a" is "swapon: /dev/mapper/vg-swap: Invalid argument".  i've tried specifying device name and device uuid, with a reboot in between. and ubuntu version is 7.1002:10
ks3Darkmystere, there should be an input, output, and forward section; in a default config, each of them should be blank02:11
ks3Darkmystere, if they aren't blank, try running sudo iptables -F, then ping again02:11
pingubsundsrud: i was just reading about some ndiswrapper stuff but it didn't sound like what i needed but maybe it is. when i was reading it i was kinda confused, it sounded fairly complicated to do02:11
ArielMTAangFan: when during start-up does the numlock light come on?02:12
ader10Is there a way I can lower my fan speed? It's at a constant 100%, making it hard to concentrate.02:12
bsundsrudpingu: there are some easier methods to do ndiswrapper, i think in ubuntu there is a utility called ndiswrapper-gtk, which gives a GUI for doing the work. also, the other piece you need is the windows drivers for your wifi card02:13
AangFanyes, but when I tipe on GDM my name and psword I have tis efect: 4b4nt402:13
dyslexicfeetHi I am new to ubuntu, i have an eeepc and i think i really screwd things up.  Can anyone help me?02:13
Darkmystereks3, im looking at wireshark too theres alot of who has Tell
IndyGunFreakdyslexicfeet: just ask your question.02:13
ks3Darkmystere, interesting... is .254 your router?02:13
pingubsundsrud: i have the drivers for xp ( its my other partition) so that won't be hard ill have to do some looking around to figure out how the ndiswrapper works exactly.02:13
Darkmystereks3, idk...:/....02:14
bsundsrudpingu: ok, good luck02:14
=== pingu is now known as mwhit74
Darkmystereks3, it also has a

ArielMT192.168.1.254 sounds like the default address of an older 2Wire DSL modem, like mine02:14
DarkmystereArielMT, its a 2wire02:15
mwhit74bsundsrud: pingu here, just changed my name, thanks for the advice02:15
ArielMTDarkmystere: 1800HG?  That's the exact model I have.  Looks like it got squashed in the middle before it left the factory.02:15
DarkmystereArielMT, :D02:16
IndyGunFreakdyslexicfeet: what do you mean its reading both versions?02:16
ArielMTDarkmystere: then wireshark is telling you something nice to know. is your modem's address02:16

DJSBXI downloaded and burnt Ubuntu Server 7.1, I tried to install it, but once it got to "Installing Base System" and it got to about 83% it just stopped for like 30 min, and nothing happened.02:20

ZayneGood evening! Is there anyone here who could help me with figuring out how to get a video card installed properly?02:20
dyslexicfeetindyguyfreak:can i delete the one i dont want?02:20
IndyGunFreakmoparisthebest: i think its gnome, or maybe gnome-desktop02:21
moparisthebestZayne, what kind of video card?02:21
IndyGunFreakdyslexicfeet: yes, but you'll still need to reclaim the space by formatting the partition02:21
dyslexicfeeti dont know what that means...i am in WAY over my head02:21
moparisthebestthere is a package called ubuntu-desktop, but removing it doesn't remove any dependant packages :(02:21
Zaynemoparisthebest, it's an ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT.02:21
IndyGunFreakmoparisthebest: i know.. i think its gnome-desktop maybe02:21
dyslexicfeetindygunfreak: I have also lost the ability to restore the factory settings that the eeepc came with02:22
moparisthebestZayne, I've had excellent luck with this: http://albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html02:22

IndyGunFreakdyslexicfeet: yes, when it comes time to install, tell it to "take over" the entire hard drive.02:25
IndyGunFreakdyslexicfeet: but you will lose everything, and have a completely new install.02:25
ks3Darkmystere, okay, so nothing in or out02:25

FlannelArielMT: You're on LVM, right?02:27
ArielMTFlannel: yes02:27
IndyGunFreakblaster: thats kinda weird, is it hooked up to a USB port, or do you have it going to a PS2 port w/ an adapter?02:27
FlannelArielMT: and what are your volume group and logical volume names for your swap partition?02:27
blasterIndyGunFreak: i have it in the USB port02:27
ks3Darkmystere, what happens if you run sudo ping localhost?02:27
FlannelArielMT: Or more importantly, whats listed in /dev/mapper for it?02:28
Darkmystereks3, Operation not permitted..02:28
IndyGunFreakblaster: maybe shutdown, and try putting it in the PS2 port w/ an adapter?..02:28
ArielMTFlannel: iirc, vg and swap respectively.  it's mapped to /dev/mapper/vg-swap02:28

Daisuke_Laptopaleka: select "draw" in the word processor.02:29
ks3Darkmystere, it seems like a firewall issue, but iptables -F should flush all the iptables rules...02:29
FlannelArielMT: Odd.  It shouldn't give you an error.  What does `sudo swapon /dev/mapper/vg-swap` do?02:30

iceswordIndyGunFreak, can you give me screenshot of fluxbox under ubuntu,i just want it easy!02:35
FlannelArielMT: Double check, sudo lvdisplay | less02:35
peepsalotwhy are info pages the same as man pages?  is this an ubuntu idiosyncracy?02:35
Odd-rationaleRippedca: Why not google talk?02:35
RippedcaHer family are using macs02:35
FlannelArielMT: er, I suppose that actually doesn't give you the partition type02:35
Darkmystereks3,what did you say before i dced? Firefox Crashed again..02:35
IndyGunFreakicesword: fluxbuntu.org has screenshots02:35
Rippedcathanks I will check out google talk02:36
Starnestommypeepsalot: the info files often are a lot more in-depth than the man files for some things, like emacs or bash02:36
iceswordIndyGunFreak, ok,but now ctrl+alt+f1 don't get me console,now,is it because i disabled hotkey-set 、02:36
FlannelArielMT: sudo mkswap /dev/mapper/vg-swap02:36
ArielMTFlannel: nope, but it showed that everything's right, except of course that # open is 002:36
IndyGunFreakicesword: most likely02:37
mwhit74anyone know anything about ndiswrapper for ubuntu. im considering it as an option to make my wireless card work better02:37
iceswordIndyGunFreak, you said most likely,what is other possiblity?02:37
blasterIndyGunFreak: wow, allot of editing for a mouse, I am going to go back to 6.10, not worth anymore headache. I have been fighting it two days. :-)02:38
ArielMTFlannel: yup, since it's out-of-commission swap, no harm formatting it even on a live system.  afk, reading manpage and doing that02:38
jimmygoonHow is ubuntu support for NVIDIA Quadro FX 570M02:38
peepsalotStarnestommy, but they aren't more in depth, i see the EXACT same text that is in the man pages02:38
IndyGunFreakblaster: seems strange it works under Edgy, but not Gutsy.02:38
xyblorwhat does it mean when ssh just hangs when you run it?02:38
IndyGunFreakjimmygoon: as a general rule, Ubuntu/Linux support for Nvidia is solid.02:38
peepsalotStarnestommy, including the part at the bottom that says to go look at the info pages for more information02:38
AangFanArielMT yes, but when I tipe on GDM my name and psword I have tis efect: 4b4nt402:38
IndyGunFreakunless its avery new card02:38
Starnestommypeepsalot: the output of info emacs looks different than man emacs for me, but not for something else like mv02:39
jimmygoonIndyGunFreak, really? I thought ATI support was better? NVIDIA is kinda the last guy holding out with the closed-ness?02:39
Leetbumblejimmy, no idea but i do use an Nvidia 8800gts and their little installer edited my xconfig just fine and i use dual screen with no probs02:39
ArielMTAangFan: so numlock comes on during boot-up?02:39
blasterIndyGunFreak: I hear ya there, doesn't make any sense to me either. I wasnt unhappy with 6.10 at all, just wanted to try 7.1002:39
jimmygoonLeetbumble, thats good to hear02:39
AangFanArielMT yes!02:39
IndyGunFreakblaster: maybe install 6.10, upgrade to 7.04, then upgrade to 7.1002:39
IndyGunFreakjimmygoon: well, until ATI actually gets stuff releeased for their cards, Nvidia, although its a closed driver, its a well written driver02:40
Darkmystereks3, You here??02:40
iRRVii need a cross platform (windows, mac, linux) cluster computing software, preferably opensource and free02:40
icesworduse that alternate cd to upgrade02:40

IndyGunFreakjimmygoon: but as a general rule, Nvidia is almost always easier(obviously very new stuff is different, but thast old enough you should be fine)02:40
blasterIndyGunFreak: possible that would work, but again, i liked 6.10, so no need to fix what isn't broke. :-)02:40
peepsalotStarnestommy, well i'd rather not install emacs just to find out.  but do why would any command say at the bottom to refer to the info pages, if they were the exact same as the man pages.  I think there is something not conifugred correctly here02:41
blastertake care peeps, :-)02:41
IndyGunFreakblaster: true, other than it will be obsolete here soon02:41

Daisuke_LaptopRyanPrior: search synaptic for "dvd"02:41
flowOver /amd02:41
ArielMTAangFan: sounds like you need to turn it off in the bios, then.  depending on your bios type, the access key is either f2, f10, or del.  reboot and mash that key as if it were a joystick's fire button.  that'll take you into the bios, where you can tell it to boot with numlock off.  if you see the ubuntu logo instead of the bios screen, it was either the wrong key or too late: reboot and try again.02:42
AangFanArielMT ok, now.. rebooting02:43
iRRViLeetbumble: thanks i'll check it out02:43
IndyGunFreakflowOver: yes they are, bu thtey haven't yet, so until they do, Nvidia still kills ATI w/ linux for ease of setup02:44
RyanPriorDaisuke_Laptop: Thanks for the suggestion. However, I had already done that, and I don't see anything that does what I want -- that is, linking video clips together using scriptable menus.02:44

GNUtoomorphiend, don't know...i'm looking for the device 25...i don't know what is it...02:51

LimCoreDaisuke_Laptop: probably good will, since linux users are like 3% desktop02:51
macogwsmartface: dont know. i fixed it once and then forgot.02:51
LimCoreand most do not like to buy, esp closed source02:52

flowOveri'm more wondering for web design purposes.  people with default ubuntu installs02:52
smartfaceWould re-installing ubuntu in LAMP mode make it all work?02:52
morphiendif you cat /proc/devices it will correlate the number to the device (driver)02:53
Daisuke_LaptopLimCore: simple games like that could draw more "everyday" users over (the web, email, im, casual game group), so it's a good thing (to me, at least)02:53
benny269how can i update octave to the latest version?02:53
GNUtoomorphiend, no my dmesg gives me that:   hash matches device device:25 and /proc/device doesn't list it02:53
RyanPriorbenny269: Do you mean that you want a version newer than the one in the repositories?02:54
GNUtooGNUtoo, cat /proc/device | grep 25 gives numbers such as 25102:54
Daisuke_Laptopwhen popcap starts releasing linux versions of its games, watch out :)02:55
flowOverwow changing everything to alsa mixer from the nvidia drivers for the nforce4 really destroyed all the crashy bug problems i was continueing to have02:55
smartfaceCan someone indicate to me how I can completely uninstall Apache, PHP, and mysql in order to reinstall them late02:55
smartfaceincluding settings02:55
benny269RyanPrior: well I installed the standard version from synaptic but i think the latest version is 3.0 and is much newer with more functions?02:55
RyanPriorbenny269: The version in Hardy Heron is release 3.0.0, so you can always upgrade to Hardy. =D02:56
Daisuke_Laptopand RyanPrior, juice_: my apologies about the jumping to conclusions re: piracy.  my first thought was planeshift = planescape and oops :\02:56
morphiendGNUtoo: paste the output from your dmesg that you're referring to02:56
RyanPriorbenny269: Otherwise, you can compile the latest Octave from source.02:56
IndyGunFreakRyanPrior: that is freakin awful advice02:56
Daisuke_Laptopcheck backports.02:57
IndyGunFreakbenny269: what are you trying t upgrade?02:57
crusader_hello can someone please help me with LTSP installation?02:57
benny269RyanPrior: can you explain how to do that please?02:57
GNUtoomorphiend,   hash matches device device:2502:57
benny269IndyGunFreak: octave, its a mathematical programming environment02:57
Jack_Sparrowbenny269, Be careful what you wish for.  Bleeding edge... can hurt.. HAve a good backup if you go outside the repos02:57
GNUtoomorphiend, and also PM: Adding info for acpi:device:2502:58
Frederickfolks I have issues with nvidia drivers I have no video output at all when starting x02:58
RyanPriorbenny269: The best way is to wait until Hardy is released. Do you need the latest version immediately, or can you wait a couple months?02:58
IndyGunFreakbenny269: whatever ti is, what he suggested was absolutely foolish.. and like Jack_Sparrow just said, be careful.. because sometimes newer isn't always better.. at least what is in the repos, is stable.02:58
Daisuke_Laptopwhat's changed between 2.9.12 and 3.0.0?02:58
Daisuke_Laptopbecause if it's not that much, you're really better off hanging back02:58

cloud210i have a question. not sure how you go about asking with everybody else here.04:47
FlannelAgent_bob: two reasons, root account has no password (is locked), second, root is disabled form logging in via SSH usually04:47
notmeever69efren do you know ath that entales?04:47
LiraNunathere isn't such a thing efren2004:47
phoenix5002my restricted driver is "atheros hardware access layer (HAL)"04:47
nickrudphoenix5002: try disabling it, and logging out and back in. Then try suspend.04:48
LiraNunamidi is pattern based, mp3 is based on raw data04:48
efren20notmeever69: nop04:48
phoenix5002but will that put me in vesa mode?04:48

LiraNunaFlannel, what!? You can't simply convert MP3 to midi, you got to be kidding04:49
FlannelAgent_bob: The root account is locked by default (as no password).  And then view in /etc/ssh/sshd_config and look at... well, near the top.  PermitRootLogin, it's no by default on dapper anyway04:49
LiraNunaMP3 is raw buffer compressed lossly, midi is a sequence of operation to create the music with HW instruments04:49

ste-foyThank you for your help powda04:51
Flannelpowda: You need to --purge them when removing, "removal" doesn't remove configuration files.  Also, --reinstall ought to refresh them as well (although I've never done the latter personally)04:52

Agent_bobFlannel also i can login with other account04:53
FlannelAgent_bob: This channel assumes you don't have a root password set, so your question didn't seem odd in the first place (we get that sort of nescience all the time)04:53
LiraNunamidi is nothing but a sequence of notes and instruments that tells the sound card what to play04:54
LiraNunathe player simply tells the HW what to do04:54
Agent_bobiter no. system is nosuid so su/sudo is imposable04:54

Bossmanbetaanyone aware of a way of detaching a remote X application running via 'ssh -Y' for re-attaching later? (Just like 'screen' but for X apps) There's an old-old app called 'xmove' (last updated 1997) but it's very buggy and doesn't work over SSH. VNC and NX are whole-desktop solutions and doesn't work well when I want to run local & remote apps on a unified local desktop.05:17

Newbuntu2iter: so basically, I tell ssh to connect to my router; my router just passes it on to my linux machine. and once that is done, ssh also intercepts the high port, runs it through 22 and it pops up as a local request?07:19
hellpme1hwilde: only in INSTALL program that i cant see the old partitions07:19
hellpme1gparted program even cant see my old partitions07:19
hwildehellpme1, your partition table is hosed then buddy07:19
jamesrdornanyway to get grub to re-detect the existing partitions and OS's on your drive w/o manually updating the menu.list file?07:19

hellpme1hwilde: what do you mean hosed then buddy? im sorry im not good in english07:20
hwildehellpme1, I mean if gparted isn't detecting those partitions then the partition table written to your hardrive has errors07:21
AfroRowanhwilde, so i must type killall /usr/bin/gnome-mount in terminal ?07:21
hwildehellpme1, you need to fix your mbr, then fix the partition table, then deal with grub07:21

hellpme1reinstalling ubuntu isbad07:22
Newbuntu2iter: makes sense. I though in destination I had to put the router, or the server ip. but destination is actually telling the linux box where to send  it...? ie if I put destination 192.168.x.x my linux machine would receive it via ssh and then go off looking for that machine inside the network?07:22

AfroRowanwhat do you mean hwilde07:23
iterNewbuntu2: exactly07:23

hellpme1hischild: my message above for hwilde is also for you,  and in addition im trying to recover the ubuntu since i cant just delete my files and reinstall winxp again07:26
Newbuntu2iter: it says "algorithm negotiation failed"07:26
animebandothanks, ill try that page07:26
hellpme1but if i have no other option then i have to reinstall ubuntu and winxp07:26
hischildhellpme1, why can't you just reinstall? did you create a seperate /home?07:26
hwildeAfroRowan, one of those processes is the one spawning those.  looks like that bonobo activation.  sudo kill -9 633207:26
iterNewbuntu2: actually I would recommend no compression unless you are on a VERY slow link07:27
iterNewbuntu2: like 1200baud07:27
hellpme1hischild: reinstall ubuntu is what im planning but the partition part of installation didnt see the old partitions i have07:27
AfroRowanprocess doesnt exist07:27
hwildeAfroRowan, sudo kill -9 `ps -ef | grep mount`07:27
Antkinhellpme1 Gparted I use this often without any problems to date07:27
hischildhellpme1, define "didn't see"07:27
hellpme1hischild: it wasnt able to see the winxp partition i have07:27
Newbuntu2iter: ok. it's dsl, so I'll let it be07:27
AfroRowani typed that and the terminal disappeard07:28
j_humphreyhow can i cancel all print jobs?07:28
hellpme1honestly Antkin gparted didnt see my partitions of /dev/sda07:28

AfroRowanstill poppin up every time07:28
LainIwakuraHello, does anyone know how to add a link to the right-click menu on the GNOME desktop?07:28
hischildhellpme1, it doesn't really matter if it doesn't see the xp part. If you install ubuntu and grub doesnt find the partition, you can still use supergrub to get it back07:28
hwildeAfroRowan, that's not even possible... one of those processes is respawning it.  you just have to kill the right one07:28
hellpme1gparted sees my whole drive a unallocated 37.26gib07:29
hischildhellpme1, can you boot xp atm?07:29
AfroRowanits happening though07:29
hwildeAfroRowan, did you reboot07:29
hellpme1hischild: yes when turning on this pc,winxp boots automatically without prompting me to the grub07:29
hischildhellpme1, do you have free space to install ubuntu on right now?07:30
hwildeAfroRowan, pastebin /etc/fstab   it must be mounting somewhere...07:30
AfroRowanhow do i do that ?07:30
hellpme1hischild: nope im planning to overwrite it in my /dev/sda5 which is my old ubuntu07:30
hwildeAfroRowan, type in  "cat /etc/fstab"  and pastebin the output07:31
hischildhellpme1, right ... and what was the reason for reinstalling? because you can just use supergrub to get grub back07:31
hellpme1hischild: i havent tried supergrub07:31
Antkinhellpme1 you do not nead to buy a new hard drive. Try a free data destruction program like Erazer and fully wipe your old hard drive then start again07:32

PwhdaveyMany a problem with modem on Ubuntu.07:32
hwildehischild, I think he has to fix mbr first, then fix the partition table, then fix grub.  if gparted doesn't even see the partitions then there is something else wrong07:32

lastmanWhat is this channel about?09:33
hwildeyeah it is not necessary to post on forum09:33
hwildeyou should google that tho because it's pretty specific and nobody here seems to know09:33
AntkinArthurArchnix Ignore me please explain why?09:34
hwildebecause you keep telling people to go to the forums09:34
prince_jammysAntkin: there is more to this channel than greeting people randomly and asking if they posted in the forums.  generally it goes like this: someone asks a question. if you know the answer, you answer. if you don't know the answer, you don't answer09:34
ArthurArchnixAll you do is say "Can I help you, do you have a question" and then say "Go ask in the forums"09:34
hwildehis question is already posted on the forum so it would just be redundant http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=58497009:34

ramrodall of a sudden im getting "Kernel panic -not syncing: Attempted to kill the idle task!" at boot time. this is the second time. first it began when i installed apache and after new install of xubuntu and yesterday when i configured lighttpd. is it possible that webservers make such kernel panics?09:52
Squawkhischild, ahh ok I know what you mean, though I can't remember what character windows uses for line termination. Once you know it a simle substitution in vim?09:52
ere4siArthurArchnix, k :)09:52
Amaranthramrod: No, this is usually a driver problem09:52
hischildSquawk, yes ... but there was a simple program that could do it09:52
hwildeSquawk, he just needs the tofrodos package.   then run dos2unix command09:52
hwildehischild, apt-get install tofrodos;   dos2unix filename09:52
Amaranthramrod: Sure you didn't get a new kernel or something too?09:52
ramrodno nothing09:52

Mighty_Penguinganes in the terminal type: info xen10:24
ArthurArchnixph8: You need to turn autonegotiate off, because even if you tell it to use 10, if it finds that it can do 100 it will with autoneg left on. At least, that's  my understanding.10:24
kalatianUbubegin: you're using the ATI fglrx driver?10:24
kalatianit does that sometimes...10:24
prince_jammysUbubegin: yeah, that happens10:24

canand now i want to rollback10:27
canso I added a gpg key to apt10:27
NET||abuseprince, what about mplayer or something, anyway to use it to do conversions?10:28
Wayne^sudo apt-key list, find the key id, and then sudo apt-key del <key id>10:28
Wayne^or delete the key from /etc/apt/trusted.gpg10:29
ganesMighty_Penguin, in my pc kernel is 2.6.21 but the xen is available in 2.6.20 , will it create problem10:29
Mighty_Penguinganes, i do not know, but your kernel should support it if its higher than what xen supports10:30
prince_jammysNET||abuse: sorry, i don't know. i know that ffmpeg and mencoder are the best for this, but i don't know of GUIs. the commands can be fairly cryptic10:30
canWayne^: thanks. but I can not figure out which one is the key10:31
ganesMighty_Penguin, ok thanks10:31
prince_jammysNET||abuse: i'm sure a GUI will come out soon, if it's not out there already.  if noone knows here, you can always google for the specific commands that you need for your conversion10:31
