bastid_raZorJack_Sparrow; well then.. that bites but i see why it is necessary.00:30
ompaulmib_uxwl3xgk, are you on that box at the moment?00:31
Skaparesoundray: OK ... I have now downloaded the latest 7.10 ISO, so I may just reinstall the whole thing with that, anyway00:31

Jack_Sparrowraiderxx, It means that it looks like you used envy or automatix to try and install something which added unofficial sources of software that can cause you future problems01:10
raiderxxok01:10

raiderxxIf so, how do I uninstall this?01:10

Jack_Sparrowraiderxx, I do not have a feisty install around to check those sources...  If you installed this os and you didnt run a script to try and get video or flash or something going then I could be wrong.01:11
raiderxxJack_Sparrow, I used Envy to try to get nvidia drivers.01:12
RequinB4I'm trying to get virtualbox to work, it says i need the modules package, which is already installed, and to run '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv start' as root'.  I do so, and it complaines that it can't find module vboxdrv.01:12
raiderxxDidnt really know any better..01:12

RequinB4!envy | raiderxx, just for future reference, hope you can get this sorted out01:13
uboturaiderxx, just for future reference, hope you can get this sorted out: envy is not needed or supported. Use the Resticted Manager to install binary drivers and see « /msg ubotu binarydriver »01:13
raiderxxSo how do I uninstall this OS, and Ill just start from scratch?01:13

orudiebazhang finally got 7.10 desktop edition 32 bit installed, the problem was the video card02:39
usseraeonoris: a lot of ways actually, one way I can think of is third party repositories with say precompiled software that is hard to get otherwise, say wouldn't you like to run firefox3 that is as easy to install as a click of a mouse, well here's the repo and here's some spy along with it02:39
bazhangorudie:02:39
bazhanggreat news!02:39
orudiebazhang: can you help me install LAMP ? i guess LAMP server is not a proper way to say this02:40
aeonorisusser:  Oh, so you're saying stupid people could theoretically get spyware?  I suppose.02:40
usseraeonoris: yea after all this is what's happening in windows right now02:41
jroes_I hit ctrl+alt+numpad minus and my screen resolution changed wildly, and I can't see my menus anymore to change my configuration, is there a shortcut to go back to my original settings or something else I can do?02:41
bazhangorudie: have you seen the link for how to do that? it is not really all that hard--you can /msg ubotu lamp for info and a link--best to read up a bit and then come back when you have problems with configuring etc02:41
aeonorisusser:  I dunno, it seems like just -running- a web browser at the wrong sites with windows can screw you up.02:41
YazzYhi02:42

frank23Flannel: ok. the UUIDs will change right?03:03
flaccidOdd-rationale, nope. doesn't look like any dict is selected03:03
flaccid!webmin | orudie03:03
ubotuorudie: webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system. See !ebox instead.03:03
Flannelfrank23: No, they shouldnt.03:03
Odd-rationaleflaccid: Do you have one installed for your language?03:03
scott__If I download an application, should I keep in in my home folder and run it from there?03:03
frank23Flannel: oh ok03:03
flaccidyeah i just did that via the wizard, but no dict is selected still03:03
Odd-rationalescott__: Yes. you can03:04
scott__But "should" I for security reasons, instead of tying to place it with default applications in the file system?03:04
prince_jammysscott__: a conventional place for custom-installed stuff is /usr/local03:05
Odd-rationalescott__: Are you talking about a .deb package?03:05
rhineheart_morudie: I am using webmin too.. what's your concern?03:05
flacciddpkg -i ./package.deb03:06
orudierhineheart_m: just trying to install it, i'm very new to linux03:06
scott__Ummm... No. Let's say I download a game, if I were running windows I would place it in "C:\Program Files\etc... IS there an equivalent for the LFS?03:06
Fredericknow x hangs in black screen03:06
Fredericklovely03:06
orudieshould i follow whatever ubotu said and not use webmin and use ebox instead ?03:07
scott__OR do I just keep it in my home directory?03:07
NthJustinfrederick: look thru your /var/log/Xorg.0.log03:07
rhineheart_morudie: okay.. have you changed anything? BUT WARNING: Please be careful with your webmin.. that mught mess you system. just be careful with your config files..03:07
flaccidwhy do you need webmin for anyway?03:07
NthJustinwhat card is it anyway? does the nvidia driver claim to support it?03:07
mikevhi, anyone know where do I check the network log, I cant click "Connection information" and when I shutdown I see a warning message..03:07
Frederickshould I re-install the whole linux  because of xconfig?03:07
prince_jammysscott__: if it's not a .deb file, it's a matter of choice where to place it. the conventional place is /usr/local.  some people also do it in  /opt03:07
Odd-rationalescott__: It is easiest to keep it in your home directory03:08
rhineheart_morudie: are you accessing it in the local location?03:08
orudierhineheart_m: i havent changed anything yet, i didnt even innstall webmin yet, ubotu just told me not to use it cause its buggy and not supported by ubuntu03:08
NthJustinno, you can just move /etc/X11/xorg.conf to some backup file and it'll try and recreate it as some basic version, if I recall right..03:08
Frederickthis crap is buget I will re-install all03:08

orudierhineheart_m: yeah, i did wget url.filename.deb and it successfully downloaded it03:09
dudeIgotadellis there a way to force apt to install03:09
rhineheart_morudie: yeah. I agree with that.. It is not really recommended for newbies.. but in my case.. its really helpful. In fact. m one of its fans.03:09

flaccidwell if its the same reason i have. i have spent hours trying to work it out and there is no fix in launchpad, so its pretty dodgy that it occurs on the livecd too. ubuntu has a lot of bugs.03:26

tritiumJangari: one example of openoffice limitations: you can't save a picture from an openoffice writer document03:33
avarnerjangari: and as much as i hate to admit it i really like the new layout they have in 2k7 plus i just had to buy the suite for class and i feel like i should get my money out of it03:33

avarnerJangari: do you think i should just grab a virtualmachine and run xp on it to use my office stuff? i'd hate to do it but there aren't any *nix apps i know out there like it03:42
Starnestommy!root03:42
ubotuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo03:42
Jack_SparrowJonZenor, there isnt one03:42
JonZenoruhm, I can't su to root03:42
Tumbl3rJonZenor: you have to hack it03:42
Jack_SparrowJonZenor, use sudo or gksudo03:42
Jack_Sparrow!noroot03:43
ubotuWe don't support a root password so don't suggest one unless you are going to be here 24/7 to help someone who has problems as a result of having one, many thanks ;-)03:43

Jack_SparrowNeT_DeMoN_, what video card?03:45
snarksterNeT_DeMoN_: desktop effects wont work if video card isnt correct03:45

berlylabsyes the only one there does05:45
rgsteele1zero88: what is it you're doing when you get the message about something being read-only?05:45
nickrudn2diy: right click the stick, on the volume tab, you can select a mount point. Use only one directory name, not a path. That is, if you want it as USB1 , say USB1 not /media/USB105:46
berlylabsi removed it05:46
berlylabsnickrud: i removed it05:46

rgsteele1zero88: are you unmounting the memory card before you eject it?05:48
nickrudn2diy: on the dialog window, there's a volume tab at the right end. Look there for a triangle next to mount point (or similar, don't have a usb stick at hand to give you the exact location)05:48

bluebananaI installed a program in Synaptic (i.e. GmailNotify). It installed some 8 or 9 dependencies (lib*perl* stuff). But when I removed GmailNotify, it didn't remove the depencies!! aagh. What do i do?05:54
chenickrud: it gives error like permission denied, do i need use root05:55
nickrudche: yes sudo05:55
nickrudWorkingOnWise: that is gcjwebplugin, a typo above05:55

Maimsteramenado: Yeah their are like dozens of cool features though.06:01
haymakeramenado I am not entirely sure, when i set up my grub file for linux, i had to point it to 0,0, so I assumed that sata disk 2 would be 1,0 and windows would be on 2,0 because it is the primary master on the ata controller06:01
darkcrab did it come pre-installed with gutsy terror?06:01
darkcrabjust curious06:01

dallas......06:01
ganxen-ubuntu-server installed in my system but it is not working? i followed the document then also?06:01
haymakeramenado, maybe i should try 1,0 and 3,0 and see if those work?06:01

nickrudbluebanana: if those packages have no further reverse dependencies,  sudo apt-get autoremove will get rid of them.06:04

amenadodarkcrab btw, auto wlan0 meant only dont activate at boot time06:13
nickrudogre: there's not a simple way to remove a profile from the gnome network manager, unfortuately. You need to identify which profile it is using gconf-editor /system/networking/wireless/networks , then  gconftool --recursive-unset /system/networking/wireless/networks/<profile>06:13

Sinnermannickrud in my previous install, i used the same sequence of events, install ubuntu, run the downloaded installer from ATI, and that worked fine. this time, fglrxinfo keeps telling me I'm using MESA instead of ATI.06:21
iceswordiancp, vmware,what product you use?vmware workstation or vmware server06:22
nickrudSinnerman: don't know what to say. When I installed that driver, I used http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Gutsy_Installation_Guide06:22
Sinnermannickrud it just won't give me 3D acceleration. and i read somewhere that it did not support my chipset. is that an updated restricted driver?06:22

Sinnermannickrud well, the only other option i've got left would seem for me to go the .deb way. which i'd not bothered with previously because running the installer seemed to work just fine.06:25
iancpnickrud: yeah youre right :)06:25
iceswordiancp, no,listen to me,i even use vmware to run ubuntu 7.10 in 100m ram06:25
nickrudSinnerman: more involved, but it integrates better into the system and has easy removal. I detest having stray, unmanaged files in my root06:25
Sinnermannickrud i do too, but im not averse to one or two exceptions.06:25

AnRkey_DARKGuy, if you want to automate it you can read up on "sed"06:29
iancpand vmware server also: is free!06:29

DARKGuyAnRkey_, yeah I have been suggested about sed, but I don't want anything commandline, I need something GUI - unless you know how do I access files in Sed through gnome's connect-to-server feature? and thanks for the gedit suggestion but I'm looking for a more automated way, there are hundreds of html files I need to do the replace in.06:30
nickrudLaughed: should be wrap around06:30
iceswordiancp, yeh,it is free also,vmware-server,try it if you are curious what to use06:31
iancpi'm sorry if asking it here, people in the virtualbox channel doesn't respond hehehe06:31
prince_jammysDARKGuy: there's also a command "replace" for simple search and replace06:31
n2diynickrud: found it thanks to the folks in #perl and #linux, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RenameUSBDrive06:31
iceswordiancp, no,you are welcome,just feel free to ask06:31
nickrudiancp: you might want to ask for more info on #ubuntu-offtopic, I think I see a couple people that use vm's regularly there06:32
Laughedokay, sorry had to get out the remote and push the image up so i could read the text06:32
iancpoh ok06:32
DARKGuyiancp, personally, the performance I've gotten in VBox compared to VMWare Player/Server is about a speed increase of 150%, not mentioning the lighter load on the OS (IMHO)06:32
AnRkey_DARKGuy, I am looking now06:32
Laughedthis seems simple now.06:32
DARKGuyAnRkey_, thanks in advance :)06:32
DARKGuyprince_jammys, yeah, but does that work with gnome's connect-to-server feature?06:33
iceswordDARKGuy, you mean virtualbox is fast than vmware?06:33
ganxen-ubuntu-server installed in my system but it is not working? i followed the document then also?06:33
iceswordfaster06:33
Laughedits asking: The default action is to keep your current version.... (thats clipped to the right and doesnt wrap around)06:33
prince_jammysDARKGuy: i don't know what that feature is06:33
AnRkey_DARKGuy, I think regexxer might do what you want to do06:33
Laughedbut my options are y/i/n/o/d/z06:33
LaughedIm thinking no06:33
AnRkey_DARKGuy,  sudo apt-get install regexxer06:33
Sinnermannickrud i think maybe my problem lies in blacklisting the modules. im not entirely sure why wasn't the case previously. but it probably is now.06:34
nickrudLaughed: wow, that's really odd that you're getting that question. The answer would be no06:34
iancpDARKGuy: actually im leaning towards vbox since its open soure06:34
=== Erick is now known as Erickj92
Laughedits just giving me carriage retuns06:34
DARKGuyicesword, in my experience yes, I use Windows in VBox as secondary OS with seamless windows and I only have 512Mb RAM, and everything is pretty smooth (I had to switch from Ext3 to XFS though, so the load on HD was less and my OS could get responsive - not VBox dependant though, it happened to me in almost any app :p)06:34
Laughednot responding06:34
overglowi have gnome right now but for some reason when i install KDE my wireless wont work. My wireless network will show up in Kwifi but it wont ever assign me an ip and i think that is my prob but im not sure, any ideas?06:35
nickrudI wouldn't expect it to. That's a question only asked during upgrades, and ubuntu has supressed those as much as possible. I'm stumped.06:35
Sinnermanwhy. let me go play around with this.06:35
DARKGuyAnRkey_, is that GUI?06:35
Laughedim gonna have to start over. thanks though. that log really put things in perspectivve06:35
AnRkey_DARKGuy, it is06:35
ganxen-ubuntu-server installed in my system but it is not working? i followed the document then also?06:35
kennyduuudes06:35
AnRkey_DARKGuy, the CLI tool, sed, is awesome and powerful06:36
iceswordDARKGuy, yes,i want to say virtualbox is good,at all,it is free,but you know,you cannot run virtualbox in 256m ram,coz it does a not good enough mem management06:36
HewusHello everyone. Does anyone know a program that logs the traffic passing through a network interface? Text based is fine. I remember using NetLimiter on Windows which did the job.06:36

phoenix24How can I use "git" from behind a firewall proxy ?06:37
AnRkey_icesword, what good ? < ?06:37
DARKGuyAnRkey_, yeah, I've gotten a lot of sed suggestions in the past :D but I don't know how to access the files where they are in console, I've never been able to unless it's been through nautilus, since it's like ftp://user@address:21/06:37
iceswordAnRkey_, you just told DARKGuy to try some thing good,i am just curious what you said "good"06:38

shane_laughed Intel core 2 duo toshiba satellite 1gb ram 160 gb internal .. 250 external seagate.  ..poor thing ... came with vista home premium slow as can be out of the box so i figured ubuntu would be a good alternative09:41
Laughed_if nobody here isnt wathcing jericho you should be09:41
prince_jammysmimrian: when you are using the command line, spaces are used to separate parameters. so when your filename contains spaces, the shell doesn't know.09:41

ubot5antivirus is something you don't really need on Linux, unless you serve windows clients. ClamAV and aegis are decent linux virusscanners. Also see !linuxvirus12:00

bentob0xnice legend2440, thx12:00
