cody-somervilleZoiks, ping00:05
fabio15,5 Kb/sec lol00:05
sdfewfsamenado, linux bridge doesn't need an IP address.00:05
bazhangAsra: that depends--what are you downloading00:05
sdfewfsamenado, defeats the purpose of bridging.00:05
Asrabazang: just some random stuff via torrent, but the seeds are over 20000:05
Jdanielshelp! my browser keeps crashing and I dont know what to do. =*(00:06
fabiocheck the max download speed00:06
Dracosdfewfs: hmm, even if you wanted to forward the bridged connections to another system?00:06
IRSeekBot_spysI'm thinking about getting a lap top00:06
Asrafabio: max down and up speed are on unlimited00:06
Jack_SparrowAsra, Not using comcast by chance?00:06
bazhangAsra: well that would be to do with port forwarding/NAT issues--what client?00:06
sdfewfsamenado, the wifi card in the linux bridge IS associated with the accesspoint and see's any traffic passing thru the link and other associated clients via tcpdump when in promisc mode. and it is passing ethernet frames from the wireless link to the wired link, to the switch, but computer1 is seeing the wifi arp traffic, just for some reason won't grab an address00:06
amenadosdfewfs-> linux box has two interfaces yes? one that associates to the AP and the other that connects to the switch?00:06
Asranope Jack_Sparrow ... Azureus00:06
bazhangJdaniels: right away or after a while00:07
Jack_SparrowAsra, Your internet provider?00:07
levanderIs the 64 bit nvidia driver more buggy than the 32 bit one?00:07
sdfewfsDraco, bridging works at a different layer of the OSI, tcp/ip shouldn't have anything to do with passing frames.00:07
cafuegolevander: No00:07
Jdanielsbazhang: right away00:07
sdfewfsamenado,  yes, it's got a wifi card and a wired card.00:07
AsraUPC .. I doubt you know it unless you're dutch Jack_Sparrow00:07
IRSeekBot_spysI was wondering, if I took an Ubuntu Live CD with me to BestBuy and put it into the laptops there, would that be a way to test if that laptop will work with Ubuntu? If so, what commands should I try, and how could I tell if the wifi will work, even if there is no active signal in the store?00:07
bazhangAsra: try a different client; transmission, deluge, ktorrent00:07
Zoikscody-somerville: hey00:07
windows_thx ubotu my frostwire works again :)00:07
Jdanielsbazhang: well with certain sites. like maill.google is a no go, but google.com just fine.00:07
cody-somervilleZoiks, Any luck?00:08
bazhangJdaniels: try running it from the terminal and pastebin any errors you get00:08
Asrayou say its the NAT right bazhang .. Iĺl see if I can adjust that00:08
PriceChildIRSeekBot_spys: see if the wireless card is recognised in the network manager00:08
amenadosdfewfs-> you have the wifi card of the linux acting as AP? ie in infrastructure mode?00:08
Jdanielsbazhang: wrong firefox from terminal? please tell me how00:08
luis_hello all, ok, so I extract tracks from a CD using sound juicer and want to put them on my ipod with amarok only that the tracks are extracted as .ogg, anyway I can make them into .mp3 in Ubuntu?00:08
Zoikscody-somerville: I have not really done anything since you left, I dont think i have enough space on other drives to make an image of them00:08
sdfewfsamenado, no, not in AP mode. should i put it in AP mode to associate with the AP?00:08
luis_hello all, ok, so I extract tracks from a CD using sound juicer and want to put them on my ipod with amarok only that the tracks are extracted as .ogg, anyway I can make them into .mp3 in Ubuntu?00:08
IRSeekBot_spysIs that System > Administration > Network ?00:08
sdfewfsamenado, doesn't seem right...00:08
PriceChildIRSeekBot_spys: its next to the volume on the panel00:09
Zoikscody-somerville: but i did a e2fsck -n on the degraded array and got told that there is an illegal inode number00:09
amenadosdfewfs-> im just trying to establish how your wifi card mode is, and how it is associated to the AP..(or acting as AP)00:09
arizalordbazhang, it said: none process eliminated.. it made nothing00:09
arizalord:S00:09
IRSeekBot_spysOkay so something should be showing up there, and even if there is no hot spot in the store it will be evident if the wifi would work if there were a hotspot?00:09
adekobai have a webpage on a remote shared-host, but I cannot access the apache logs. How can I log the number of downloads or somehow get a hit-count for all files (i.e., not just html/php pages)? I have cgi-bin access, btw.00:09
sdfewfsamenado, it's a wireless bridge, not an accesspoint. the bridge is asscoated properly with the AP.00:10

Jdanielsbazhang: yeah I dont know the terms.00:11
poddusI need some help installing ubuntu00:11
sdfewfsamenado, the bridge is working properly as far as i can tell. as my laptop is associated with the AP, and so is the linux bridge. and computer1 is seeing traffic from my laptop's mac address, so by which, traffic is going from laptop, to AP, from AP to linux bridge, from linuxbridge to switch, then to computer1.00:11
amenadosdfewfs-> which interface name of linus is the one thats connected to the switch? and you set it in promiscous mode?00:11
bazhangJdaniels: then that would be the problem--just type firefox in the terminal and pastebin any errors it gives00:11

sdfewfsamenado, ath0 is asscoaited with the AP. eth0 is connected to the switch. eth0 and ath0 are in promisc mode. br0 has eth0 and ath0 added to it and br0 itself is in promisc mode.00:12

amenadosdfewfs-> now does linux eth0 have an ip address assigned? can you ping it from the wired client?00:13
bazhangJdaniels: you might try to undo what you did with the java or uninstall firefox and reinstall it--not sure what you did with the java though so hard to tell00:13

PriceChildgemidjy: it does not "start it in windows".00:15
amenadosdfewfs-> really? you would not be able to assign an ip address to eth0? i would think you could, as the brctl interface br0 is different from eth0.. i may be wrong but that is how my thoughts are00:15
Jack_Sparrowgemidjy, Because it is unsupported and in my opinion a very bad way to try ubuntu00:15
kitchegemidjy: no it makes a image that you can boot into that is ubuntu00:15

amenadohooper82-> what is the issue?00:16

Asrawell .. fabio I'm pertty used to Azureus from windows which used to work fine .. so anything simulair but faster would be nice :)00:16
xenthrohey, I just compiled my first .deb and it works with ubuntu. where should I upload it for the good of all?00:16
bazhangarizalord: when you ran that command what was the error you got?00:16
sdfewfsdhcp won't bind to either eth0 or ath0 or br0 when the bridge is up.00:16
joobabybazhang, I dont believe so, I can play sound from other things, I assumed I was using the 'cd player' app00:17
bazhangarizalord: and that should be without the << you know00:17
thinkpaduserluis_:  it uses the gstreamer libraries for lame, i believe00:17
sdfewfstake bridge down, dhcp works and ping works. bridge up, ping/dhcp dies.00:17

Zoikscody-somerville: i would have to run e2fsck without -n then wouldnt I? Is there any other flags i should use00:17
Jack_Sparrowxenthro, what deb did you compile?00:17
luis_how can I get soundconverter?00:17
bazhangjoobaby: you need to give the name of the app--not sure what cd player is00:17

neverbluenice xenthro00:18
Jdanielsbazhang: after I had all the java stuff installed in its own directory.00:18
joobabybazhang, on my add/remove list it simply says 'cd player', I could download another if you have a recommendation00:18
thinkpaduserluis_:  try 'apt-cache search soundconverter'.  if it doesn't return anything you may need another repo in your /etc/apt/sources.list00:18
amenadosdfewfs-> you really meant dhcp not dhcpd ?00:18
sdfewfsamenado, yup. but, i'm totally boggled as to why computer1 can see arp frames from my laptop, after it's going thru my bridge, and to the AP.... but won't grab dhcpd.00:18
bazhangJdaniels: that would likely be the source of your woes, as firefox complains about the plugin manager00:18
sdfewfsamenado, yes00:18
Asrawell .. ktorrent isn't much faster to be honest .. still only 6KB/s :S00:18

sdfewfsamenado, i'm trying to bridge my linux box's wifi card to his AP. which is working.00:26
fabioman.linux-ntfs.org/ntfsfix.8.html00:26
sdfewfsamenado, as i can see ethernet frames passing thru the kernel.00:26
tominglis_amenado: thanks loads00:26
JoeLuvsUbuntuanyone?00:26
xenthroRyanPrior, ntfsfix (nix package) can only go so far as to flag an ntfs volume to be checked by the MS chkdsk... which comes with windows. you can also access it by starting up a windows cd and going to the recovery console. one of the options is "chkdsk"00:26
amenadosdfewfs-> im not sure if an AP thats in infrastructure mode, can be dual bridge mode also..promiscous is not bridging(at least i dont think so) but you said using openbsd it works..so am wrong maybe..00:27
zero88Excuse me. What is the best software to copy a DVD to an .iso other then Brasero?00:27
Zoikscody-somerville: that help at all?00:27
amenadotominglis-> it worked?00:27
palomerhow do you count the number of lines in a file?00:27
xenthroRyanPrior, in other words, you will need windows in one form or another00:27
PriceChildzero88: nautilus has that built in. Right click the file :)00:27
Jdanielspalomer: | wc00:27
zero88PriceChild i believe i used that. it made a 1.1 mb iso and stopped.?00:28
levanderJack_Sparrow: Have you ever gotten video to play from a Windows box over rdesktop?  I try it and just get a black box in Windows Media Player where the video would be.00:28
amenadohooper82-> two commands you need to make your ubuntu box a router00:28
sdfewfsamenado, yeah, i'm still investigating it. just weird why arp traffic passes thru but won't let dhcp requests go through.00:28
joobabynew to linux, trying to install an mp3 program but I can't get rhythm box, vlc, amarok, etc to install as there is apparently some conflict, how do I find the conflict in synaptic to remove?00:28
Jack_Sparrowlevander, no00:28
PriceChildzero88: first i've heard of it failing :)00:28
amenadohooper82-> sudo echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipvr/ip_forward00:28

Jdanielsbazhang: do you know how to delete a plugin from firefox, manually?00:29
amenadosdfewfs-> i guess having your wifi ath0 in promiscous mode, it sees all the broadcasted traffic, but it only means in monitor mode and not in TX mode?00:29
joobabyrhythm box says there is a hardware conflifct00:29
levanderJack_Sparrow: You haven't tried it, or it doesn't work?00:29
lunksHow do I make a module load on startup? I blacklisted b43 and thought bcm43xx would start automatically, but it's not...00:30
bazhangarizalord you still there?00:30
amenadosdfewfs-> to communicate you need both to TX & RX ..promiscous to me is only RX mode..00:30
Zoikscody-somerville: there was one there before I reinstalled ubuntu on the 750gb drive00:30
sdfewfsamenado, dunno. according to promisc all packets will be recceived by the interface, wehther or not their destined for the intented card.00:30

amenadosdfewfs-> yes Recieved, but in promiscous  mode, i dont think you can also TX at same time00:31

limpHello, I think I might be having issues with NetworkManager (the installed network manager installed on Ubuntu 7.10). It takes a very long time to connect to my wireless (while on windows it instantly connects, so no hardware issues). And after some time it disconnects, and whenever i try to reconnect, it crashes (nothing happends anymore, or the icon just closes). Whenever i try to "Connect to another wireless" it crashes. And it won't connec01:26
limpt in manual mode. The only way i've been solving this is to reboot my computer for it to refunction correctly. I wonder if this is what has been slowing down my computer lately (its only a month old, but since a few days its slower then my 6 year old computer). Does anyone have an idea of what is happening, and suggestions? Should I install another network manager?01:26

StwangeWhoaItsPhil, if you don't like the command line you can always use sudo graphically - alt + f2 and type "gksu nautilus", then use that to copy things03:22
morphiendefren20: what are you using?03:22
sarixeusser, WhoaItsPhil : cp -r03:22
WhoaItsPhilaha that worked...what exactly did the -r do?03:22

sarixeah, didn't know that03:22
StwangeWhoaItsPhil, recursively03:22
WhoaItsPhilah thanks stwange, didn't know i could sudo in the gui03:22

Jdanielsdanbhfive: no! please elaborate, i dont know how to do that.03:27
morphiendLike if you're resizing and you drag real fast, all of the sudden the mouse is highlighting text in firefox because that's the next place the cursor got to before the window was able to resize03:27

morphiendefren20: how do you eject the ipod?03:28
efren20morphiend: but when i eject i have no songs cant hear them only when i connect to pc and i eject in the eject button03:28
jamesrdornit's saving a hash from the key in /etc/network/interfaces03:28

UbubeginIs there a way to hide the folders in the desktop...03:29
Jdanielsdanbhfive: i'll try it. any idea what whatever's value would be for java runtime environment?03:29
morphiendefren20: or have you been using the eject from amarok/banshee03:30
Jdanielsdanbhive: or a way to see all my installed packages?03:30

They provide a comprehensive set of tools that function 'as one', if you will.  They also each use different gui libraries (qt for kde, gtk for gnome, which will cause some visual differences if they are run side by side)03:58
mike9682000evening! I cannot see or mount any of my secondary IDE devices in Nautilus. Could anyone help?03:58
regeyaaye, kde apps work fine under gnome, and gnome apps under kde.  right now I'm running kde, but also running compiz-fusion, awn, firefox, and quod libet.03:58
Fryguy--mike9682000: wanna be a bit more specific?03:58
nickrudmike9682000: do you see them with  sudo fdisk -l ?03:59
limpFryguy, oh and while im at it, what wireless program do you suggest..? i just tried out network selector and wifi radar but none of them work... they just wont connect to any of my wifis. I've already searched the net03:59
Fryguy--limp: I don't run linux on a machine that uses wireless, all of my machines with wireless are either running osx, freebsd, or windows03:59
Fryguy--actually wait, none of them are on freebsd anymore either03:59
mcspiffquestion, I had a repo in apt.sources list. I installed some packages from this. Ive now removed and want to downgrade to the packages from the repos currently in my apt.sources. Is this possible/Does it make sense?03:59
mike9682000Ubuntu loads from a SATA; I gave two IDE hard drives with 3 partitions each. Nautilus does not see the HDD on secondary IDE. Does that answer your Q?04:00
Fryguy--mcspiff: apt-get update && apt-get upgrade should take care of them04:00

efren20is there any drawing program where you draw something and could make it live like walk fire etc...04:01
limpFryguy, Ok. Do you know anything about the gstreamer plugin bad? Can't find it and i'd really want the equalizer on exaile04:01
Fryguy--mike9682000: so you don't have an hdc device, but you have an hda device?04:01
axisyshow do I force it?04:01
axisyssudo apt-get install -f did not help04:01
Starnestommyalex_: try #ubuntu-es ?04:01
Fryguy--limp: uh not really04:01
bazhangalex spanish? /j #ubuntu-es04:01
nickrudaxisys: do you know exactly what packages you got?04:01
axisysacroread04:01
limpFryguy, ok =) how do i revert to gnome if KDE doesn't please me?04:01
axisysnickrud: acroread04:01
Fryguy--limp: again, plenty of directions on the internet for that, but just pick the gnome session in whatever login manager you are using04:02
Starnestommylimp: just change the default session type in gdm/kdm04:02
nickrudaxisys: argh, wrong guy. I haven't run acroread since evince started working right04:02
Fryguy--i don't even run acrobat reader on windows...04:02
cowo_ganteng.dal.net04:02
limpFryguy, you can choose between Gnome or KDE before logging in?04:02
Fryguy--limp: yes04:02
mike9682000fryguy: in fstab I have: /dev/sda1 /dev/sda5 /dev/hdb .dev/hda (hdb and hda are the CDROMs) and /dev/floppy04:02
axisysnickrud: well is it really acroread that is the problem? i thought it is dpkg that is failing to overwrite? no?04:03
efren20is there any drawing program where you draw something and could make it live like walk fire etc...04:03
mike9682000fryguy I also have a second SATA04:03
Fryguy--mike9682000: so you have neither of your IDE hard rives?04:03
mcspiffFryguy--: no go04:03
limpFryguy, awesome. I'll stop nagging u guys with my rediculous questions now =) thanks again =)04:03
mike9682000I have the primary only and the two SATAs04:03
mike9682000I cannot mount the secondary04:03
nickrudaxisys: yes, that's what happening.  Could you give me the output of apt-cache policy for each of acroread-plugins mozilla-acroread acroread and acroreader-enu ?04:04
Fryguy--mike9682000: you just said you had 2 cdrom drives, and didn't list any ide hard disk drives, so i'm a bit confused now, if you could clarify that would be great04:04
nickrudmcspiff: do you know exactly what packages you got from the other repo?04:04
mcspiffnickrud: yup04:05
mike9682000My computer has: 2x SATA, 2X IDE, 2X CDROM and one floppy The IDEs are connected to the primary master and primary slave, the CDROMs to secondary master and secondary slave respectively04:05
axisysnickrud: here u go http://rafb.net/p/2HH3TC28.html04:06
bazhangonly one floppy? ;]04:06
Fryguy--mike9682000: either your primary ide controller is on a different interface than your secondary controller, or it's disabled in bios, because if it were enabled, your cd drives would be hdc and hdd, not hda and hdb04:06
Fryguy--regardless of whether it found the drives on the controller or not04:06
nickrudmcspiff: you need to find each of those in synaptic , and use package->force version on each. Once you've done that, you shouldn't have any issues04:07
axisysnickrud: was it for me too?04:07
nickrudaxisys: where'd you get acroreader-unu from?04:07
mcspiffnickrud: sounds good. Still seems weirdest to me that you cant force apt to do a "use newest version in repo even if they're older"04:07
nickrud-enu*04:07
nickrudmcspiff: it goes by version number, not date04:08
ghosti need help after compiling a kernel. how do I make an initrd image so i can boot from grub?04:08
axisysnickrud: i was just reading this http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Gutsy04:08
* Fryguy-- has never compiled a kernel from scratch in ubuntu so i can't help you there04:08
mcspiffnickrud: well, this issue im having is the version installed has a higher version that the one in the repo. Same arguement, wrong term.04:09
efren20is there any drawing program where you draw something and could make it live like walk fire etc...04:09
axisysnickrud: so that means media ubuntu04:09
Fryguy--efren20: are you referring to something specific?04:09
nickrud!kernel | ghost (this has instructions on initramfs iirc)04:09
ubotughost (this has instructions on initramfs iirc): The core of the Ubuntu Operating System is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, but if you're convinced you do, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile - For more: /msg ubotu stages04:09

kamodohey04:10
mike9682000fryguy: /dev/disk/by-id DOES see the secondary IDE label04:10
axisysnickrud: if i can remove it I can start over those steps04:10
axisysnickrud: must have screwed some step there04:10
nickrudaxisys: yes, that's what I was about to suggest04:10

axisysnickrud: so how do I remove it?04:11
=== l33t1st is now known as enl810d
nickrudaxisys: sudo apt-get remove --purge acroreader-enu04:11
axisysnickrud: wait let me try to remove.. not sure if I tried that.. i only tried to overwrite04:11
dn4I just put in an older gfx card, b/c my old one broke. How do I update my xorg.cfg to use the new one?04:12
Fryguy--axisys: you probably want to use dpkg directly04:13
nickruddn4: a quicky would be sudo dpkg-reconfigure -pcritical xserver-xorg04:13
Fryguy--dn4: edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf to make the correct changes :)04:13
mike9682000 fryguy: /dev/disk/by-id DOES see the secondary IDE label04:13
nickrudFryguy--: once it's in the dpkg database, apt-get will remove it04:13
Fryguy--nickrud: he doesn't want to remove it though, he wants to force reinstall the version from current repository04:13
kamodoNo idea: lemme rephrase, how do i edit xorg.conf at command line?04:13
Fryguy--or so i thought04:13
axisysnickrud: worked04:14
Fryguy--kamodo: open it up with a text editor..04:14
axisysnickrud: thnx .... oohooo!!04:14
Fryguy--vim works04:14
nickrudFryguy--: he's got that from somewhere else, needs to replace it with the medibuntu stuff04:14
kamodotheres a command line text editor?04:14
Fryguy--so does emacs, and at least a few others04:14
Fryguy--kamodo: there's several04:14
Starnestommykamodo: vim, nano, emacs, ed, sed, and some others04:14
Fryguy--lol sed :)04:14
Fryguy--that's pushing it a bit04:14
nickrudhex04:14
Starnestommyed and sed are very minimalistic04:14
axisysnickrud: take it back.. said too soon04:14
* nickrud has forgotten the name of the hex editor ;(04:15
dn4damn all the text on my screen is blue now04:15
kamodoty, vim worked by default install thanks04:15
dn4my gfx card is wack on crack04:15
nickruddn4: what kind of card is it?04:15
dn4nickrud: voodoo3 gfx04:15
Fryguy--hahaha kamodo just opened up vim and doesn't know how to use it, this should be interesting04:15
axisysnickrud: i ran this `sudo aptitude install acroread acroread-plugins acroread-escript04:15
* Fryguy-- waits for the "wtf i can't type text" statement to come04:15
axisysnickrud: and I get this http://rafb.net/p/uIEbB166.html04:16
nickruddn4: sudo dpkg-reconfigure -pcritical xserver-xorg will do it, had one of those once04:16
axisysnickrud: looks like it did try to install the plugin before core app ..duh!04:16
=== _max is now known as max
kamodoheh, vim should be fine, its not hard to find documentation on it once i can get it open04:17
Fryguy--i use vim 8+ hours a day at work :)04:17
=== Fersure is now known as Shinigami
nickrudaxisys: those are some screwed up packages it looks like. Try just installing acroread by itself first04:17
orionfyreWhere can I find a tutorial on how to add a command to the right click context menu of AVI files?04:18
dn4nickrud: what do I do after typing in that command?04:18
Fryguy--orionfyre: what specifically do you want to do?04:18
nickruddn4: restart X, that should set you up with a default video04:18
axisysnickrud: thats what I have trying now04:18
hdevalenceI have had a problem with wine (this bug http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10674 ). It says it's been fixed upstream (upream of X i think). How would I get the upstream version?04:19
orionfyrefryguy: I want to add a command that will runa  mencoder command line04:19
dn4nickrud: thanks04:19
Fryguy--orionfyre: check out nautilus scripts (google that should get you a good base)04:19
Fryguy--g-scripts probably already has a solution for that (g-scripts.sourceforce.net)04:19
kamodowow... so vim isnt just as easy as write the info, and save :/ lol (checking out a command sheet) welll.. thats fun04:20
Fryguy--kamodo: :)04:20
orionfyrefryguy: __/|\__ thank you for showing me the first step on the path to my continued enlightenment that is Linux ;)04:20
vALIENhey everyone... i got gutsy running smooth, never used wine...wondering if it is worth getting.. any opinions?04:20
hdevalencekamodo: it's way 1337er though04:20
nickrudhdevalence: if you're talking about a later version of X , you'd have to compile it or use hardy04:20
Fryguy--kamodo: vim is extremely powerful and fast after you get used to the way it does things04:20
axisysnickrud: check this when I try to remove it says its not there.. when I try to install it says dpkg error04:20
Fryguy--kamodo: like I said, I use it 8+ hours a day as my programming environment of choice04:20
kamodowell, i just need to set vertfrefresh from 43-60 to 6004:20
hdevalencenickrud: what version of X does hardy use?04:20
Fryguy--hdevalence: #ubuntu+104:20
hdevalenceFryguy--: thanks04:21
nickrudaxisys: complete output of the error please. (although I have no Idea why I'm working on a non-free piece of software from medibuntu)04:21
kamodoyeah, im a windows 2k guy... (dont laugh, im slowly making the switch04:21
Fryguy--kamodo: ironically i'm switching away from linux :)04:21
kamodookay, i scrolled down, and replaced the text.. will that work with vim?04:21
kamodojust gotta save, sorry if im being too annoying, hah, im glad you guys are friendly here04:22
tritiumFryguy--: why would you want to do a thing like that?04:22
Fryguy--tritium: switching to freebsd :/04:22

kamodohttp://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/vimcheat.html04:22

kamodois the command line text editor command cheat sheet.04:22
kamodonot very friendly04:22
nickrudaxisys: the complete error from sudo apt-get install acroread04:22
axisysnickrud: here is the paste http://rafb.net/p/v40QJh80.html04:22
Fryguy--tritium: yah, been playing with it in a virtual machine, and I got a new 8-disk raid array coming for my closet-server (media storage for the house), and i'm probably going to switch the OS on it to freebsd and go from there04:23
Fryguy--kamodo: you can use nano or something for now, which will be easier for you to get started with04:23
Fryguy--nano is installed by default i think04:23
nickrudaxisys: are you sure you ran apt-get remove --purge acroreader-enu ?04:23
vALIENhey sorry ... just asked about wine.. anyone have any opinions?04:23
mrpocketshow do you add more desktops in compiz?04:23

axisysnickrud: removing...04:27
ShadowApexHey I'm trying to migrate my Ubuntu home server to another computer. The new computer has a raid array. If I just copy the entire contents of my previous installation onto a new installation on the raided hard drives... will that work?04:27
axisysnickrud: removed..04:27
Fryguy--ShadowApex: probably not04:27
nickrudaxisys: now try the install again04:27
axisysnickrud: lets try acroread again?!04:27
axisysnickrud: heh04:27
Fryguy--ShadowApex: there's a certain amount of hurdle jumping involved in booting from a raid array04:27
nhlinuxShadowApex: it should sorta work. How are you going to transfer the data from one drive to the RAID array?04:27
axisysnickrud: and....(drum roll)... success!!04:27
nickrudaxisys: once again, pebcak ;)04:28
axisysnickrud: hehe04:28
KumoolOdd-rationale, there shud be a pidgin icon in the sys tray just click it there04:28
ShadowApexnhlinux: it has 1 ide channel so I was going to hook it up, mount them both from a live cd and transfer04:28
nhlinuxare you going to dd from one drive to the other?04:28
axisysnickrud: i cannot beleive u helped me with non-free pkg... (i am just teasing you my friend)04:28
ShadowApexFryguy: it's hardware raid, not fake raid. my new installation of Ubuntu on the new server boots flawlessly with RAID504:29
ShadowApexnhlinux: dd?04:29
Odd-rationaleKumool: Yeah, but when i close my conversation window it does not minize to tray.04:29
Fryguy--i'm surprised hardware raid works directly out of the box as well, but OK04:29
nhlinuxdd is a UNIX command to copy raw data from device to another04:29
Fryguy--ShadowApex: shouldn't have any problems then04:29
nhlinuxit's like ghost04:29
ShadowApexFryguy: hmm... I guess the worst that could happen is that I just reinstall04:29
Fryguy--Odd-rationale: if you want to minimize to tray, click the minimize button, if you want to close click the close button....04:30
ShadowApexnhlinux: ahh... i was just going to cp -r /media/hda104:30
Fryguy--ShadowApex: definitely don't do that :)04:30
KumoolOdd-rationale, the conv window the main window u mean or the conv window that holds conversations04:30
nhlinuxexample... dd if=/dev/hdc of=/dev/sda04:30
Kumool?04:30
nhlinuxIn that example, I just imaged the old drive to my RAID array04:31
Odd-rationaleKumool: The one that holds the conversation. The main window goes to tray, I beleive04:31
ShadowApexFryguy/nhlinux: Could I just use gparted and cpoy the entire partition to the raid array?04:31
nhlinuxnope04:31
nhlinuxgparted won't do that04:31
ShadowApexnhlinux: why? When I run "fdisk -l" I see the entire RAID array as 1 hard drive04:32
KumoolOdd-rationale, i dont think that can be done unless u use an app such as all-tray tho i cud be wrong04:32
nhlinuxif you want to replicate the contents of the original drive (including the boot sector and partition table) to your RAID array, dd is the command to use.04:32
Fryguy--fdisk/gparted/etc are for managing partitions on a single disk, they don't have any support for migrating a partition from one disk to another04:33
Odd-rationaleKumool: OK. Thanks!04:33
kamodoanother question about xorg.conf    IS VertRefresh == Refresh Rate?04:33
ShadowApexFryguy: You can copy partitions to another disk in gparted04:33
nickrudkamodo: there's vertical refresh and horizontal sync04:33
talcitedoes anyone know a lot about the AIGLX or XGL bases?04:33
Fryguy--kamodo: vertical refresh rate, yes04:33
talciteare they supported or necessary?04:33
kamodoawesome, thanks04:33
nhlinuxI've never seen that featyre before04:33
ShadowApexnhlinux: ok, so if I use dd; what would be the syntax to that? Say my RAID array is /dev/sda1 and my old hdd is /dev/hda104:34
talciteI'm using compiz and FSAA 8x...04:34
nhlinuxdd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/sda (if you want to copy from sector 0 to the very last sector of /dev/hda, the first drive).04:35
nickrudtalcite: one or the other is required for compiz ...04:35
ShadowApexnhlinux: ok thanks. I'll go ahead and try that now04:35
ShadowApexI'll let you know if it works ;D04:35

talcitewhat's the difference Kumool?04:44
amenadoacxty-> isnt there like a Fn key to activate both?04:45
Kumoolwell on som old monitors when it shakes it means that theres a phone around or something... but since its with that app specifically i dunno04:45
talciteohh, no it's an LCD04:45
acxtyamenado, the problem is that the FN Key doesn't work04:45
Odd-rationaletalcite: Is it mostly a maximized window or a window near the edges or panels?04:45
talciteyes, its a maximized window04:45
amenadoacxty-> you have a bad key on your keyboard? or you need to activate that in your bios?04:46
talciteOdd-rationale: Does it have to do with the edge attraction?04:46
acxtyon windows it works fine04:46

vampirefroghi. I'm trying to fix my debian installation with ubuntu. so I don't write the iso to a cd, I'm using vmware to boot ubuntu from windows. I also set vmware up to use the physical hard drive. however, I can't see any /dev/hda* from within ubuntu04:49
vampirefrogi tried modprobe ide-disk, but that didn't work04:49
phynixi found that out by accident when i was scrolling through and it made it really low and i couldn't click on a window04:49

ubuntuhi05:29
ttotallynickrud, i did ... partitioned it beforehand with cfdisk, then clicked on manual05:29
amenadottotally-> yeah if you are in manual partitioning, you also have a choice for mount points.. so /dev/sda6 for /  and /dev/sda1 for /boot05:29
nickrudatonalpanic: yes, if you decide to mount it at /windows don't forget to sudo mkdir /windows05:29

ttotallyamenado, i have / for root and /boot for /sda1 ... is that right05:30

PendetaI have some (probably dumb) questions concerning the Ubuntu Server Edition.  1. Can it be used as a workstation also? or is that not wise?05:36
NuCobraok if it works i will see you all around some time05:36
Fryguy--Pendeta: ubuntu server doesn't install a gui by default05:37
PriceChildPendeta: the server edition is just a different set of default packages05:37
nickrudbrandonc503: yes, but if it's an ntfs/vfat partition, you were copying into preset permissions.05:37
brandonc503nickrud it looks like it copied the files but the permissions where not persereved05:37
ttotallyamenado, let me ask this then. will ubuntu put linux in / automatically? and the kernel image/grub/etc in /boot?05:37
igoens0c45:624f Microdia Webcam <-- works with gspca driver but no /dev/video0 = "What's the problem?"05:37
amenadoPendeta-> yes it can be used as workstation, you may have to add desktop to get gui features05:37
dn4iahttp://heraldnet.com/article/20080303/NEWS01/36782281905:37
PriceChildPendeta: you can install a gui on top of the server base install, or you can install server apps on top of the desktop install. You end with the same result.05:37

nickrudbrandonc503: exactly.  if you want to preserver permissions, do   tar -cf www.backup.tar /var/www , that will make a file that will preserve permissions05:38
ttotallyback to troubleshooting then05:38
nickrudbrandonc503: or, reformat one of those other flash drives as an ext2/3 partition05:38
brandonc503nickrud can i do that with ubuntu05:38

PendetaQuestion 2, how does file sharing work? Can you still keep some data files on each workstation?05:39
nickruddn4ia: yes, please avoid it in the future05:39

jamesrdornis there a good way of freeing "shared" memory? I had a VM open that I had to kill. Normally this RAM is freed when the app closes. It wouldn't be a problem but it's 7.4GB of ram that it in use.06:24

neowould this revert back the softwares that i have installed from reposetry06:54
SupaFlyFryguy it says "A panel is already running."06:54
prince_jammysneo: this would save the packages from your cache and then you could reinstall06:54
SupaFlyweird, cause there aint no pannels running06:54
SupaFlyi tried rebooting to make sure too06:55
prince_jammys!clone | neo: check this out too06:55
ubotuneo: check this out too: To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « dpkg --get-selections > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo dpkg --set-selections < my-packages && sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade » - See also !automate06:55
Fryguy--SupaFly: run "killall gnome-panel" and then run the other command06:55
SupaFlyFryguy dude, you are a legend, it got my panels and desktop back!06:55
SupaFlythanks heaps :)06:55
prince_jammysneo: that last one saves a text file that lists all your packages.  you then save the text file somewhere and run the second command to download and reinstall all the same packages06:56
Fryguy--SupaFly: btw, there's tons of random stuff going on with ati and compiz, might want to do a bit more research before you screw with compiz some more06:56
Fryguy--SupaFly: or just go and buy an nvidia card06:56
SupaFlyyeah thats true06:56
SupaFlyim getting a new pc very very soon, so im gona get an nvidia card this time06:56

Fryguy--b4l74z4r: pretty sure it supports it now07:16
b_eccahow do i do that on console?07:16
prince_jammysb_ecca: mmm the problem is if you can't sudo, you can't add yourself unless you're root, i guess07:17
b_eccaafter doin visudo  'visudo: /etc/sudoers: Permission denied'07:18
prince_jammyshow can she get out of this? she has to log in as root07:18

AndrewMcb_ecca: try using a resuce CD07:21
Fryguy--lol, how to hose a system with a single command that doesn't have "rf" in it07:21
Fryguy--just boot the livecd again, mount the partition, and edit the /etc/group file07:22
b_eccais there another way? AndrewMc i think that'll be my last choice if nothing else works :)07:22
AndrewMcif you can't log in as root, you need to boot with something that will let you be root.07:22

DASPRiDFryguy--, i know truecrypt, thanks07:36
DASPRiDDesuism, test failed, sorry07:36
AndrewMcDASPRiD: first see if using -j (bzip2 compression) will make your data small enough to fix on the 270 gig disk.07:37
Desuism(I'm testing my IRC Clien07:37
Desuismy)07:37
Desuismt07:37
DASPRiDAndrewMc, all data are still maximal compressed07:37
DASPRiDthey won't get any smaller07:38
AndrewMcDASPRiD: how did you compress them?07:38
iterDASPRiD: you can split a tarfile with -M07:38
iterDASPRiD: however you are probably limited to the size of the smaller of the 2 disks07:39
DASPRiDAndrewB, well they are all in compressed file formats07:39
DASPRiDiter: thats not enough then07:39
iterDASPRiD: perhaps you should manually create two directories, one with 230GB data and one with 260GB data and put one on each disk?07:39
AndrewMcDASPRiD: you could also use lvm to create a volume that spans both disks, that would give you about 500 gigs07:40
DASPRiDAndrewB, well in one fact i wasnt true07:40

DangermikeAmir880, i need to do some googling but firefox is seg faulting :( trying to look it up now08:58
Dangermikechazco, no just the multimedia player i think you can right click those individual files and change the default programs and it will update08:59

Amir880okay cuz i can't do it through gparted09:04

sapwhat does it do?09:13
archmanere4si: turning off roaming mode?09:13
BlouxouTheOomph: It's an algorithm that you can run on data that basically creates a unique string from anything. If the data is changed in the slightest, the MD5 value will change. The idea is that we can use it to validate the ISO isn't corrupted - we know what the MD5 value of the perfect ISO is; and if there's any change in the data the MD5 will change09:13

ubotuarchman: Wireless documentation can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs09:15

BlouxouHaha, someone's been googlebombed. A search for system76 turns up wikipedia [[FUD]] on the first page of results.09:24
sapDangermike, unfortunately that tool isn't much descriptive . Rather I found a good online resource: http://www.geoiptool.com/ . Thnks for the help tho.09:25
Dangermikesap np i didnt think you would fancy it but never-the-less glad you found a solution09:25

BlouxouI'm an accountant, and certainly not a geek, let alone someone capable of installing RAM, even if it only means sliding away a panel and inserting some sticks of memory.09:34

AmaranthDangermike: That's just alacarte again09:40
Dangermikelol your right09:40
Wind``hey guys, i have a serious porblem09:40
AmaranthDangermike: You can get to alacarte through right cick->Edit Menus, System->Preferences->Main Menu, and just running 'alacarte'09:40

Wind``any ideas how to fix this?09:41
Amaranthepibox: The GNOME menu follows the freedesktop.org standards for menu systems. It uses an XML menu for layout and ini-type files for the actual entries in the menu09:41
Amaranthepibox: The system version of the menu is in /etc/xdg/menus/ but you can also create user versions in ~/.config/menus/09:41

smacky1wow i build this powerful machine and ubuntu can't handle it ...go figure...lol09:42

erawfish_smacky1: apparently you cannot answer question siether. so have fun solving your problems alone. HAND09:42
ndlovuAmaranth, does it depend on the application, or is there just never a way?09:43

amitprakash_whats the app which lets you select gdm login theme09:43

smacky1after the reboot it go'es to a black login in screen09:43
Amaranthamitprakash_: System->Administration->Login Window09:43
Dangermikesmacky1, can you switch to a terminal and run sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg09:44
Amaranthamitprakash_: I wouldn't get to attached to theming gdm though, in Ubuntu 8.10 (October 2008) we'll have a new rewritten version of gdm that doesn't do theming09:44

Dangermikesmacky1, its not supported but if you can get into the system using vesa drivers envy was easy to go through09:49
Amaranthsmacky1: for now boot in recovery mode (option on the grub menu) and uninstall nvidia-glx-new, then when you reboot you should get a somewhat working X back09:49
Dangermike!envy09:49
ubotuenvy is not needed or supported. Use the Resticted Manager to install binary drivers and see « /msg ubotu binarydriver »09:49

DangermikeAmaranth, do you know how to diagnose a firefox and epiphany seg fault from the crash reports i see the memory maps etc. but i dont really know where to start :\ this is a brand new install of Gutsy09:53
dgjonesMasterRat, kernel updates are likely to cause you to end up with a broken system once you've used Envy, you end up having to reinstall envy after updates to the kernel09:53

swombatyes, I need to send a hundred bajillion emails about a new viagra recipe that also makes you rich, immortal, and attractive to young nymphomaniacs10:25
ere4siswombat, might be a question for #ubuntu-server :)10:25
swombat:-P10:25
ganeshgerro, you told that firefox is always going to google.com, remove the page from preference, then it wont go to google.com10:26
gerroganesh: no I said I can "only" go to google.com any other place won't load10:26
MasterRatswombat: just remove whatever domain it thinks its responsible for... should still be able to send... I think. specifically how to do that, I dunno10:26
swombathmm10:26
osfameronDangermike: also, if I set the internal mic volume up, that appears to be a monitor (so I can hear myself typing/speaking as I do it, but it doesn't record... at least I know the mic is still working...)10:26
Dangermikeosfameron, mic boost seems to help mine enough to make it sound like my mike is not working10:27
MasterRatbut yah, go try a server app. the only mailserver I'm familiar with is exchange10:27
hwildeswombat, on your server what do you get if you type "nslookup yourdomain.com"10:27
MasterRaterr, server chan, not app10:27
Dangermikeosfameron, i dont know about recording i dont really use mine but i can hear myself in the speakers :\10:27
swombatanswer points to self10:27
swombatbut does not include MX records10:27
ganeshgerro, ok you do one thing , remove the firefox completely & reinstall it again10:27
osfameronDangermike: hehe10:27
MasterRatswombat: which would indicate you *are* running DNS, more than likely10:28
illethalHey does anyone know how I could get Thunar on Gnome?10:28
Dangermikegerro use diff nameservers like opendns10:28
swombatthe server giving the answer is not self10:28
Dangermikenameserver 208.067.222.22210:28
Dangermikenameserver 208.67.220.22010:28
swombatit's another one on the local network though10:28
* osfameron will try rebooting and see if that helps...10:28
burkmatAuto fs-check on boot gave me a nasty error, and it's saying "Inode 1119915 has illegal block(s). Clear<y>?" - I guess I'll have to answer yes, but I'm wondering: What will this do to my fs?10:28
MasterRatswombat - nslookup <enter> set type=mx <enter> domainname.com10:28
swombatit has the correct MX there10:29
hwildeswombat, now what if you tracepath10:29
Dangermikegerro, you can edit /etc/resolv.conf but make a backup or comment out your other entries see if it doesnt help10:29
swombattracepath??10:29
=== MasterRat is now known as MasterRatzzzz
hwildeswombat, tracepath yourdomain.com10:29
gerroDangermike: resolv.conf has the correct info, I think the problem is my ethernet card doesn't support ipv6 at all10:30
Dangermike:/10:30
gerroDangermike: but I remove support for that everytime anyway so I shouldn't have bothered troubling you10:30
Dangermikecouldnt tell 'ya my isp doesnt support it10:30
swombathwilde: you mean traceroute?10:31
gerroDangermike: even if you don't use it, its on by default and bugs most every network able device10:31
Dangermikeah10:31
hwildeswombat, no I mean tracepath just type it in already man10:32
swombatyeah, that wasn't found10:32
swombatit's not on apt either10:32
hwilde/usr/bin/tracepath10:32
Dangermike^10:32

Dangermikei have it10:32
hwildelocate tracepath10:32
Dangermikewhich tracepath10:32
swombathwilde: only got traceroute there10:33
hwildewhat distribution are you running man10:33
swombatah crap. this one's a debian box.10:33
swombatlol. sorry10:33
osfamerongah, this is utterly broken.  The volume control is supposed to control PCM, but my volume buttons are affecting the microphone monitor volume instead10:33
hwildeswombat, anyways traceroute it or whatever10:33
tarelerulzHave any of you ever try to get a Yahoo linux client that did audio and video ? I  found gyachI ,but it ask for really old version of alsa . Should I install the old version or would that miss my system up ?10:33
hwildetarelerulz, pidgin works pretty good10:34
swombat1 hop10:34
swombatstraight to self10:34
swombatwhich is expected for mydomain.com10:34
fract^wizzHow do i show the list of people in the channel in XChat ? :O10:35
danandtarelerulz - probably not a good idea to install the old version of alsa. you will run into loads of problems10:35
tarelerulzhwilde:  if text world that is great idea ,but I would like to use voice ? Is a update client that would do that?10:35
Dangermikeview->userlist?10:35
fract^wizzDangermike, i dont have that10:35
Dangermikeits in XChat 2.8.410:35
fract^wizzDangermike, so i have to like, update it ?10:36
Dangermikei suppose if you wanted to..otherwise im sure its in the settings somewhere10:36
Dangermikei dont recall using versions without that setting so i couldn't tell 'ya where at it is but its probably worth updating if you cant find it10:37
fract^wizzIve been looking around for a while now, but i guess ill find it, it would be kinda weird otherwise ^10:37
jKrypthello all10:37
burkmatWhat effect can a .cso file have on a system? It seems that by simply putting it in ~/ I managed to screw up the fs and had to fix it. Seems very strange.10:38
nraicI have been able to install previous versions of ubuntu before. I am having problems with 7.10, X seems to go out of range for my monitor, I get no signal.10:38
nraicI have got a 8500GT card10:38
Dangermikenraic, what are you using as the driver and have you tried sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg?10:39
nraicDangermike, I am just using the boot cd, how can I do that command from a boot cd?10:40
Dangermikeyou can try to switch to another terminal10:40
Mr_Awesomehow can i make the ls comand always mean ls -B ?10:41
