PeloswatTX,  at some point during the install,  you will select manual partitioning,   the step following the ones that looks liek gparted , you will be given the options to select mount points for your partitions00:29
danandsteven_ - i should have checked this first ... are you a member of the audio group. type groups in a terminal ... if audio is in the list you are00:29
Prefix100oh btw, when you plug an ipod into ubuntu when its been in xp, do you have to format it or something?00:29
BellaDAs I I have stated earlier all user privilege boxes are checked00:30
steven_danand: Yeah, I am.00:30
cpk1Lasivian: what version orinoco driver you have?00:30
LoganI have a question, i'm a noob and trying to install ubuntu 7.10 , no matter what option i select when the ubuntu boot menu apears i get a command screen saying (initramfs) any ideas, please??00:30
NinjaPlimsolesPrefix100: no, but you do if it touches a Mac00:30
Prefix100ahh yeah kk00:30
PeloBellaD, if it is a permission problem which i think it is , booting the previous kernel will not change the outcome, but to boot the previous kernel,   just  hit esc aftter the bios stuff when you boot, that will give you the grub boot menu,  you can select from tehre,  usualy about 4 lines down00:30
SakkathNinjaPlimsoles: 045e:008c is the id from lsusb00:30

[FT]Alexquick question - is virtualisation for gaming still a bad idea?00:31
macrobadkenro: Well, I am not up to it too, definitly, and rather picking up some from movies and web. At any rate, I'll presume in America these guys are called hipsters, and in UK -- charvs, and they don't watch anime or manga!00:31
Kl4m[FT]Alex: Yes.00:31
bittin[FT]Alex: yepp00:31
swatTXPelo:  when i create new partition I have the option for primary or logical. which do i use (sorry never done a manual install before)00:31
[FT]Alexthanks guys00:31
Kl4mMaybe not with hypervisors type stuff00:31
cpk1wine/cedega does a good job though [FT]Alex00:31
NinjaPlimsolesmacrobad, geeks watch anime....... i am a geek ^^00:31
Kl4mbut virtualisation à la VMWare is still no00:32

Prefix100wine is so good00:32
BellaDthanks lets see00:32
[FT]Alexcpk1, yeah. I installed steam through wine but the steam community doesn't work00:32
PeloswatTX, you can only have up to 4 primary partitons on one hdd,  if you are planning to have more then that you can only have 3 primaries and the rest must be logical00:32
BellaDPelo  thank you and maybe........00:32

PeloNinjaPlimsoles, by default  ubuntu installs the swap as logical , I do the same00:33
danandsteven_ - the only thing i can suggest (other than crying) is to look at that link and work through that ... or search for your sound chip on google and see if the ubuntu forums turn anything up - sorry - kinda out of ideas. Tried all I know :(00:33
bittinand iam also misses Steam in osx :(00:33

l815efren20, System > Preferences > Appearance, the last tab is where you turn it off and on02:19
trogdorrbazhang, it looks like its installed (its in the grub menu) but its not default, how do i make it default?02:19
NinjaPlimsolescaptine, you there?02:19
l815efren20, or if you want to do it easier type "Alt+f2 , compiz --replace"02:19
efren20ok and when i wana turn it on i untap none?02:19
darkcrabLeeuw, why dont you understand that you need an account for pidgin?02:19
l815efren20, yes to turn it off check none02:20
efren20and to turn it on check? wat02:20
Ezrabellad i wish, but no such luck02:20
l815efren20, any of the other options depending how much goodies you want :p02:20
TrustNoOneposr, the nvidia site does have linux drivers for the 9600 GT card, but personally I would try the nvidia restricted drivers that come with ubuntu first, if that doesnt work, then try the one on nvidia support site02:20
LeeuwI do understand, but in the howto of x-chat there's mention of a password, I didn't need it here, so how cann I log in with pidgin ?02:20
efren20extar would do good on compiz?02:20
captineNinjaPlimsoles, yip02:20
LeeuwAnd is Leeuw now my account, or just a nickname for this chat today02:21
captineNinjaPlimsoles, will ifconfig now02:21
MunhentosI'm trying to setup X forward via ssh but not seems to work02:21
captineNinjaPlimsoles, http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/58563/02:21
darkcrabummm...pidgin uses aol, yahoo, msn, and jabber leeuw, you have to have one of those accounts to access Pidgin services, which in reality is only an outlet for one of those services02:21
BellaDIreland here lol02:22
Munhentosalready configure sshd_config, calling ssh -X -Y, but it nevers sets the DISPLAY variable02:22
darkcrabif you dont know that, im not sure you really should be uses linux.02:22
Leeuwpdgin also uses IRC, no ?02:22
darkcrabbut good luck with that.02:22
darkcrabthink so yea.02:22
Munhentosnetstat says no one is listening at port 600002:22
Munhentosany idea?02:22
ThreeFingerPeteLeeuw: yes, pidgin does IRC. i had problems though02:22
Leeuwso how can I log in to this channel with Pidgin ?02:22
ubotu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, #ubuntu+1 supports the development version of Ubuntu and #ubuntu-offtopic is for random chatter. Welcome!02:22
NinjaPlimsolescaptine, sudo /etc/dbus-1/event.d/dhcdbd restart02:23
PhotocopyDo emerald and beryl really use up a crapload of crap? theyre using 60% of my 512 mb ram...02:23
chuckfis there a trick to getting gutsy to work with samba shares? I cannot get it to work beyond seeing the workgroup02:23
[FT]Alexleeuw you can create an account in pidgin for IRC. you don't need to sign up for one, it just saves some settings02:23
Leeuwam I off-topic ?02:23
darkcrabwhy not just use x-chat Leeuw02:23
Leeuwyeah, makes sense...02:23
TrustNoOnePhotocopy, i am using beryl and lots of compiz fusion settings, i have 1gb of ram and it is 55% full by the time i turn my pc on02:23
Paper_Apphelp me..... my desktop windows are very.. but.. very slow!!!!!02:23
Ezrapc: yes, they do. at least video-mem02:24
PhotocopyTrustNoOne: Okay... And what does my swap partition do?02:24
darkcrabcomputer specs Paper App02:24
[FT]Alexfor other services, you need to sign up first. but for irc you can just enter a nick and connect02:24
Leeuwso, on xchat, reason I wanted on this channel is problem with drives; right channel here ?02:24
PhotocopyTrustNoOne: Its at 0% of 7 gb.... i know its big, i had extra.02:24
NinjaPlimsolesPhotocopy, acts like a windows pagefile02:24
darkcrabas long as your using ubuntu02:24
PhotocopyNinjaPlimsoles: Oh, thats a better more organized way to do it.. GJ ubuntu.02:24
NinjaPlimsolesPhotocopy, GJ linux ;)02:25
Leeuwgood: problem is this: had all my NTFS-drives on desktop (quite a lot), after boot with windows they dissappear.02:25
TrustNoOnePhotocopy, your swap does not have to be larger than 512mb, it is just like a page file in windows (uses it if your ram is full)02:25
Leeuwcan get them back with parted, but makes no sense to have to do averytime02:25
PhotocopyTrustNoOne: Yeah, I know, isnt the rule of thumb twice your ram?02:25
PhotocopyNinjaPlimsoles: Right, i forgotted.02:25
[FT]Alexso I left my computer for a while, and when I came back my usb keyboard and mouse had stopped working. I can't find a fix for it online except for disabling powernowd. is this the solution?02:26
cellofellowhello. I'm having a bit of trouble with Firestarter.02:26
Leeuw@photocopy: one and a half times ram actually02:26
Paper_App... my partitions are DEFAULT by ubuntu 7.10.... i have a D865G Intel Videl Card..  (64Mb)02:26
TrustNoOnePhotocopy, no, it is min 256 (i think) and max 1gb, it CAN be twice your ram, but if you have 4gb, 8gb for swap is just a waste02:26
D-Unitis there an ebook that tells u how to use cinelerra (not a website)02:26
PhotocopyNinjaPlimsoles: I also want to put a baby on a partition so I can boot it once in a while.02:26
PhotocopyTrustNoOne: Doesn't bother me.02:26
NinjaPlimsolesphotocopy, is baby licensed under the GNU/GPL?02:26
captineNinjaPlimsoles, sudo: /etc/dbus-1/event.d/dhcdbd: command not found02:26
TrustNoOnePhotocopy, ya thats fine, its just like 6gb of porn you cant store02:26
darkcrabLeeuw, you said after boot with windows: if you are not currently using Ubuntu, a linux distribution, but instead having problems with microsoft windows, join #windows please.02:27
PhotocopyNinjaPlimsoles: haha02:27
Paper_AppAvan Windows Navigator has been destroy my SPEED02:27

cellofellowI have a laptop, so I want to lock it down while on the road, but NetworkManager scews around with Firestarter. Firestarter refuses to start at boot, for one. It also complains about my two NIC's (one Wireless using NDISWrapper, the other is a regular onboard Ethernet.)02:27
NinjaPlimsolescapine, ugh... lol02:27

Alan_MLogan, please ask your question.02:28
amenadohow does grub creates the stage1 1.5 and 2?  or does one know the script thats is run by install to create these? I just installed the ubuntu 7.10 from a hard disk, ie hd to hd..but /boot/grub was not created nor the stage1 1.5 and 202:28
Leeuwhave dual boot, Usse ?02:28
captineNinjaPlimsoles, this is proving to be a challenge.  wish i had installed xubuntu from the beg02:28
TrustNoOnecellofellow, firestarter is just to manage your firewall, your firewall is always running in linux, you can start firestarter and go to load list to see the blocks it did02:28
darkcrabcellofellow firestarter does not need to be running for your firewall to work.02:28
Ezralogan: what up, logan?02:28
Paper_AppI has been uninstal Avant.... buy my computer is slow (After it )02:28
Logani've tried to install ubuntu 7.10 but i get the menu and any option i select leaves me at (initramfs). i reburned so many copyes but still the same i even downloaded a fresh copy02:28
bazhangpolishpaul_: ah good to hear; nice work!02:28
Loganwhat could be wrong?02:28
Leeuwbut have my data on NTFS, to read in both linux and windoze02:28

StarnestommyLogan: have you tried the alternate CD?02:29
NinjaPlimsolescaptine, this is a right headache02:29
Alan_MLogan, i have had the same issue...i have no clue what causes it...but i suggest...what Starnestommy  says :)02:29
cellofellowbut I'm thinking that the firestarter daemon does something special. Does it set up the iptables stuff?02:29
platyhelminthhi, How to minimize a full screen programm ?02:29
Logani haven't but will try02:29
Starnestommycellofellow: it does02:29
darkcrabok, so your saying when you boot into Ubuntu, it is not recognizing your harddrives Leeuw?02:29
amenadocellofellow-> it uses the iptables02:30
Ezralogan: have you done a fresh install, or is there an old grup inst. there?02:30
=== lipsinOffline1 is now known as lipsin
Alan_MLogan, yes, go try that, if that works, great, if not..we will be here ;)02:30
cellofellowI have usplash disabled, so I see my init output, and firestarter fails when booting.02:30
Photocopywtf! Nautilus is taking up 10% of my ram and all I have open is pidgin!!!02:30
amenadohow does grub creates the stage1 1.5 and 2?  or does one know the script thats is run by install to create these? I just installed the ubuntu 7.10 from a hard disk, ie hd to hd..but /boot/grub was not created nor the stage1 1.5 and 2..i thought i'd be sneaky and install from hd..02:30
NinjaPlimsolescaptine, sudo depmod -a02:30
Leeuwit was at first, but after one boot with XP, they disappeared; after some time reappeared, after another boot windows disappeared again; I think reappearing had to do with using parted02:30

Leeuwfirts they did02:32
PhotocopyThats horrible02:32
Alan_MYes sir?02:32
StarnestommyPhotocopy: it is running.  It manages the desktop and file browisng02:32
TrustNoOnecellofellow, firestarter is not a firewall, it is just a program to manage the firewall already in linux. you can download and install other ones if you want, but it isnt that necessary, the ip tables in linux do a great job as it is02:32
darkcrabcellofellow, oh ignorant one, you only run firestarter once, it just a config utility, the actual firewall is command-line based.02:32
Loganokay downloading now and again the waiting game.02:32
CaymanAlligatornautilus is always running02:32

* NinjaPlimsoles smiles at Alan_M02:32
CaymanAlligatorit's like explorer in windows02:32
cellofellowI mean, why does it have to interface dependant? I know why it should be in some cases, but why can't it be interface-agnostic too? (So as to protect on both eth0 and wlan0)?02:32
StarnestommyPhotocopy: how much ram do you have?02:32
polishpaul_where are the boot parameters in linux again? For example, i don't want to mount all the partitions on my HDD..02:33

bruenigcellofellow: man iptables, have fun02:33
NinjaPlimsolesok ok alan, i missed the pipe :(02:33
amenadocellofellow-> what do you mean interface dependant?02:33
NinjaPlimsoles!rtfm | Alan_M02:33
ubotuAlan_M: Acronyms or statements like  noob, jfgi, stfu or rtfm are not welcome in this channel. Period.02:33
Ezralogan: no, i mean, did you format the partitions used to install ubuntu, or did you use an old ext3 partition when installing?02:33
cellofellowdarkcrab: Ok, don't call me ignorant, I didn't know precisely how it works, but I've twiddled in iptables before.02:33
TrustNoOnehmm what is jfgi02:33
Photocopynever heard of rtfm...02:33
Alan_MAnd...yet..i didnt say them :)02:33
darkcrabLeeuw, which did you install first, windows and your drives or ubuntu?02:33
PhotocopySomeone wanna PM it to me?02:33
Alan_Mi was warning another user about that.02:33
NinjaPlimsolesi know LO]#02:33
Loganalso i have a question...  i have a Dell 1721.. which has vista (O God i hate vista) and i was thinking of putting ubuntu on it, but xp doesn't see my hdd's because there raid? Vista bearly does needs drivers. will ubuntu see it?02:33
bruenigTrustNoOne: something which solves 90% of the problems in this channel02:34
Leeuwfirst windows, already there for year, now UBUNTU about a month02:34
cellofellowamenado: if I plug in my wired connection, all ports are now open on that interface, because I configured firestarter to block on wlan0 instead.02:34
bruenigcellofellow: use iptables02:34
TrustNoOneLogan, no it shouldnt NEED the drivers for raid as they are already there, but you can install them if it doesnt recognize it02:34
platyhelminthHow to minimize a full screen programm ? someone know how to do it ?02:34
bruenigcellofellow: if the dinky front end doesn't do it, use the real thing02:34
darkcrabLeeuw, what version of ubuntu do you have?02:34
bruenigplatyhelminth: depends on the window manager02:34
LoganSorry Ezra, i didn't get to any point to do that the menu booted up i selected any one it did the bar loading thing and then bam (initramfs)02:34
cellofellowI find iptables to be very complicated and static. I wanted something quick and dynamic. Maybe I'm just lazy.02:34
dftLogan: which PERC controller do you have02:34
bruenigcellofellow: static?02:35
amenadocellofellow-> well firestarter has to be told which interface is  exposed to the wild net, and which interface is considered your local lan02:35
Ezralogan: check with the live cd function. all partitions should be visible there.02:35
Alan_Mfirestarter is awesome :)02:35
dftLogan: sry, PERC=poweredge raid controller02:35
Leeuw@playty : use alt-tab02:35
cellofellowamenado: yes, I've used it for a gateway before.02:35
amenadocellofellow-> it does take a while to understand iptables.02:35
dftI'm stuck in Dell server land02:35
darkcrabok, Leeuw, your welcome to stay in the chat and ask anyone here, but I recommend that you search the ubuntu forums: http://ubuntuforums.org/02:36

* NinjaPlimsoles is inventing a Linux-powered Rice Injector02:36
cellofellowbruenig: set the conf file, and it can't dynamically adapt to needs. Static. I might be wrong, maybe being dynamic is a bad thing.02:36

Leeuwdid, can't find...   What keyword you suggest ?02:36

Sakkathso my ubuntu machine can get on internet!02:37
NinjaPlimsolesim an electric wheelchair?02:37
bruenigcellofellow: perhaps there is a firewall that has a conf file that you just type "do good stuff" in it and it works02:37
dftLogan, burn that image and boot from it02:37
cellofellowah, well, firestarter is decent for a desktop.02:37

ubotuLeeuw: You can use <tab> for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.02:38
amenadoLeeuw-> thats calle highlighting02:38
Alan_M!firestarter | nwahsadude02:38
ubotunwahsadude: Ubuntu, like any other linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'iptables' command (see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo), or GUI applications such as Firestarter (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE).02:38

cellofellowD-Unit: you could fit one ISO file. I suggest using AcidRip and encoding to XviD or x264 to save some space.02:45
Dr_willis_D-Unit,  i would suggest compressing the indvidual files, not the whole disk.02:45

NinjaPlimsolescaptine, i cant find anything on the net about it02:49
spyd3ranyone know anything about getting USB GamePads to work?02:49
NinjaPlimsolescaptine, and its not something ive come across myself, im almost certain it was when you installed Xfce02:49
BellaDI don't know what to do02:49
captineNinjaPlimsoles,  i will need open office etc, which i dont think comes standard with xfce.  I would still be able to install all other apps in repo, right?  and get wifi to work using restricted drivers etc?02:49
D-Unitcellofellow, do u no of any windows freeware that i can use thru wine that would compress directly bcuz i have no internet on that comp and windows apps dont ask for dependencies02:50
captineNinjaPlimsoles, or would installing ati drivers, my modem and wifi be more console driven?02:50
jribBellaD: you never answered my question02:50
Dr_willis_spyd3r,  often the games need to be configured to use /dev/input/js0  instead of /dev/js002:50
NinjaPlimsolescaptine, Xfce is just the WM02:50
polishpaul_I see 2 devices in sound pref - HDA Intel (alsa mixer) and Analog Devices AD1984 (OSS mixer)02:50
dftcaptine: what hardware are you running on?02:50
cellofellowD-Unit: DVD video and audio is already compressed, somewhat, using MPEG2. Compressing more, especially with a general purpose lossless algorithm like gzip or bzip2, will likely not work.02:50
dftI've been using xubuntu for some time now02:50
Ezrabellad: just a minute bellad.........02:50
captinepresario turion 512mb ram02:50
BellaDi did jrib02:50
dftiirc oOo does come installed02:50
cellofellowD-Unit: both dd and bzip2 are included in a base system.02:50
kiss_soni have my own.......... or u need to find it somewhere e;se02:50
jribBellaD: what is the full path to the file you are trying to edit?02:51
captinedft, shared memory02:51
cellofellowD-Unit: you may have to read the dd man file for some info.02:51
D-Unitcellofellow, no offense but u rely lose me with the way u talk02:51
spyd3rdr_willis_, the problem is that the buttons work in SMC but the d-pad does not02:51
captinedft for graphic. think is 1.8 or something processor.02:51
cellofellowD-Unit: ok, sorry. Did I skip something? Where'd I lose you?02:51
captinedft ati graphics02:51
BellaDetc modprobe.d alsa-base02:51
jribBellaD: ok, now, what is the exact command you used to try to edit it?02:52
kiss_sonor ask other guy to dd if=/dev/sda1 of=grub-imge.bin bs=512 count=1 to u02:52
D-Unitcellofellow, like "special words" like dd and bzip2 etc02:52
cellofellowD-Unit: are you familiar with the command line?02:52
D-Unitcellofellow, well somewat i guess02:52
kiss_sononce grub is restored , make sure the menu.lst is ok on a active partition02:52
D-Unitcellofellow, like i dont avoid it02:52
kiss_sonthen it will be ok02:53
NinjaPlimsolesD-Unit, DD = data definition, bzip2 = compression method applied to a tar02:53
cellofellowD-Unit: ok, dd is a bitstream copyer thingy that you can use to make ISO images of CDs and DVDs, among many many other things.02:53
BellaDI was stupid enough to just open the file in an ordinary text editor and I pasted a text and now....02:53
cellofellowD-Unit: so, sudo dd if=/dev/dvd of=/path/to/file.iso will create a copy of the input file (if) to the output file (of).02:53
orudieNinjaPlimsoles: have you ever installed phpBB ?02:54
NinjaPlimsolesorudie, nope :(02:54
cellofelloworudie: I did. :)02:54
captinedft what do u use your machine for?02:54
captineNinjaPlimsoles, how do i backup my evolution mails?  just copy folder?02:54
SilentDisgot a 'puter running Ubuntu 6.10.  / partition is a bit small.  is it possible to enlarge / (hda1) and decrease the side of /home (hda2) without loosing data on /home?02:54
jribBellaD: you can't do that.  First off, I strongly recommend you make a backup of the file first.  Then use sudo to edit it.  If you need a gui, use "gksudo gedit".  Make sure you know what you are doing02:54
jrib!sudo > bellad (read the private message from ubotu)02:54
NinjaPlimsolescaptine, can you export the folder within evolution?02:54
jrib!who | BellaD02:55
ubotuBellaD: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)02:55
irenehi people02:55
captineNinjaPlimsoles, not sure.  let me google this one02:55
NinjaPlimsolesirene, hi :)02:55
D-Unitcellofellow, wat does that command do? compress?02:55
irenehi ninja02:55
dft<~~~...come on Irene!!...~~~>02:55
NinjaPlimsolesD-Unit, what command? :)02:55
jribdft: please don't do that02:55
livefoniksHow many times?02:55
D-UnitNinjaPlimsoles, sudo dd if=/dev/dvd of=/path/to/file.iso02:55
orudiecellofellow: trying to install phpBB3, cant install because cant find database, and i have mySQL 5 installed02:56
ireneactually i'm not irene, i'm the guy who mount ubuntu on her laptop02:56
NinjaPlimsolesD-Unit, thats just a data copier02:56
Dr_willis_D-Unit,   this is when it pays to learn the command line basics, and some other guides.   You are going through a lot of work to make/compress a .iso image for very little gain to be honest.02:56
Ezrabellad: there is a lot of different text editors in the distro. they are all pretty  similar and the point is that you need root privileges to make changes to files. i can post the changes in the file for you if you want. there's just one line.......just remember to not get too frustrated. take a break every once in a while.02:56
Dr_willis_D-Unit,  when to actally use the iso files later - you will need to uncompress them.02:56
Bossmanbetahi Dr_willis02:56
Bossmanbetahi SilentDis02:56
ireneguys can you help me with something?02:56
BellaDok jrib02:56
SilentDisgot a 'puter running Ubuntu 6.10.  / partition is a bit small.  is it possible to enlarge / (hda1) and decrease the side of /home (hda2) without loosing data on /home? going to put 7.10 on as a fresh install.02:56
polishpaul_Need more help - installed U 7.1 on my lenovo T61 and i have no sound02:57
BossmanbetaSilentDis, Try Gparted02:57
irenei have a problem with my tv card02:57
SilentDisBossmanbeta: it will allow a resize without destroying the data?02:57
NinjaPlimsolesSilentDis, and dont do it too often or your HDD will cry02:57
ireneis a pinacle pctv stereo02:57
BossmanbetaSilentDis, yes ...02:57
D-UnitDr_willis, isnt there a windows app that will compress and encode at the same time that way i dont need the xtra hd space and then i can just burn the files to a disc like dvdxcopy did on windows but i dont like that message in begining02:57
polishpaul_SilentDis, i'm not sure about shrinking a partition.. but enlarging should be doable02:57
irenei'm tring to use diferent tuner numbers02:57
irene but i ca't find one02:58
NinjaPlimsolespolishpaul_, shrinking is deemed safer than enlarging02:58
BossmanbetaSilentDis, you could also temporarily move data to an external USB drive to make the job easier, then put the data back02:58
cellofellowD-Unit: there are dozens of compression utilities for Linux.02:58
SilentDispolishpaul_, Bossmanbeta: hmm.  maybe i should just grab an extra drive, backup the data, and go that route.02:58
polishpaul_SilentDis, step 1 - backup.. always02:58
D-Unitcellofellow, k, i guess ill continue this later on cuz i have to go to bed cuz i have things to do early tomorow02:58
Ezrabellad: try adding this to your alsa-base file options snd-emu10k1-creative model=sblive!02:58
polishpaul_NinjaPlimsoles, is this the case with linux partitions?02:58
D-Unitcellofellow, thanks for ur efforts02:59
NinjaPlimsolespolishpaul_, any partition :)02:59
D-Unitand the rest also02:59
SilentDispolishpaul_: it's my mom's computer.  to say she's not backing up regularly is an understatement.  guess i should just do it anyway lol02:59
Dr_willis_D-Unit,  i dont mess with such things in windows.. and   i dont find the compression of .iso dvd files to be worth the time it takes to compress them. You  seem to be getting diffrent steps mixxed up. theres 'reencoding' a 9+gb dvd video to a 4gb disk sized image.. thats ONE step/task. then theres the compression of the 4 .iso files thats a totally unreleated task.02:59
BellaDEzra thank you02:59
BossmanbetaSilentDis, I agree -- backyup your critical data before doing anything ... but to make the resize easier, move it offline, then resize, then move it back02:59
=== CR_cwek_Toket_Gd is now known as CoJKT-sKcWE36B-u
BellaDI am tired out now I will go to bed02:59
Dr_willis_D-Unit,  you dont ust compress a 9gb dvd  to fit on a 4gb disk and be playeable.. You have to reencode it. thats what k9copy does - i belive02:59
polishpaul_SilentDis, you may want to 'image' your partition with partition-save then if something goes awry, just reimage02:59
BellaDThank you Ezra take care03:00
NinjaPlimsolesDr_willis, iso's are compressed? o.O03:00
polishpaul_SilentDis, but a simple copy should do the trick :)03:00
Ezrabellad: again, from the land of oz......no worries03:00
D-UnitDr_willis, ya but does it do all that without exceeding 9gb of space or does it need to recopy the whole dvd but decrypted then have to shrink it and waste additional temporary space (which wont be possible due to my lack of hd space)?03:00
Dr_willis_NinjaPlimsoles,  the files ON them  :) are the issue.  hes getting several different things mixxed up i think.03:00
SilentDispolishpaul_: the more i think of it... the more i don't wanna deal with this in the future.  i think i have an extra 40gb drive sitting around anyway.  it's going in the box lol03:00
BossmanbetaSilentDis, Gparted comes in a bootable ISO so you can cleanly play with the partitions without mounting them03:00
Dr_willis_D-Unit,  no idea. I dont worry abotu disk space. :)03:00
NinjaPlimsolesDr_willis, just burn a tar.bz2 to disc? lol03:01
Dr_willis_NinjaPlimsoles,  use rar. :)03:01
D-UnitDr_willis, k, well does k9copy require dependencies?03:01
D-Unitcuz i rely hate those03:01
Dr_willis_D-Unit,  most likely theres some.. thats what the package manager is all about.. it handles it.03:01
arrrghhhhey all.  just wondering where usb devices mount in /dev.  my girlfriend's ipod is showing up in lsusb, but it's not showing up on her desktop like it usually does.03:01
=== CoJKT-sKcWE36B-u is now known as CoJKT_SK_cwek36B
D-UnitDr_willis, package manager?03:01
NinjaPlimsolesD-Unit, if you use apt-get it will meet its dependencies03:01
Dr_willis_D-Unit,  i never have problems with dependenciues.. apt-get or synaptic grab them as needed03:01
D-UnitDr_willis, o that ya but im talkin bout a comp thats not connected to internet03:02
Dr_willis_D-Unit,  if you dont understand how apt-get, synaptic and so forth work.. its time to read some Ubuntu beginner guides.03:02
bruenigbeware of meta-packages though03:02
bruenigtotal fail03:02
NinjaPlimsolesmeta-package = boom03:02
Dr_willis_D-Unit,  I dont mess with non-connected stuff.. sorry. theres ways to do it. I just dont  do  that stuff.03:02
D-UnitDr_willis, no, i do, its just i have no internet and had looked to apt-zip but dont no how to use that either03:02
Dr_willis_i would just connect it to the net with a cable , install stuff.. then  remove cable. :)03:02
D-UnitDr_willis, k, well anyway i rely need to sleep now03:02

NobleArcWhy must defragging a hard drive take so damn long? =\03:06
NinjaPlimsolesNobleArc, zeroing one with 4 passes takes longer :P03:06
iceswordhow would i disable deskbar-applet at boot03:06
NobleArcI just want to put Ubuntu on ze lappy... well, dual-boot it, like I've got on my main machine, but I don't want to wait for it to defrag first, before partitioning. =\03:07
NinjaPlimsolesNobleArc, why defrag something thats being partitioned? the files wont be scattered if they dont exist ;)03:08
iceswordhow would i disable deskbar-applet at boot03:08
NobleArcI plan on resizing my current partition to make room for Ubuntu, without removing XP.03:08
RoootyHi, all my icons (like folder or file icons) just all went generic-blank-paper icon. Anyone know the solution?03:08
jribicesword: remove it from your panel03:09
victamowerI've installed a package and modified it's configuration in /etc, now I'd like to restore the default configuration03:09
=== allquixotic_ is now known as allquixotic
=== bmk789_ is now known as bmk789_chrrrr
NinjaPlimsolesNobleArc, aaaaaah, yeah wait for defrag to finish or you might get files caught in the deflate03:09
victamoweris there any way to do that without uninstalling and reinstalling it?03:09
NobleArcYeah, I've had it happen once on an older box.  Didn't lose anything, as I had backups..03:09
NobleArcbut still.03:09
NobleArcDon't want to deal with it.03:09
iceswordjrib, maybe that is not right,i don't that process at boot03:09
Jack_SparrowNobleArc, Dont even think of repartitioning before defragging, and I usually recommend two passes at defrag to be sure.03:09
iceswordi don't want that process03:10
NinjaPlimsolesJack_Sparrow, he wasnt03:10
jribicesword: deskbar-applet only loads when you login03:10
iceswordrunning in background03:10
NobleArcI've already defragged it with two programs, now I'm using Microsoft's built-in one.03:10
arrrghhhso where are usb devices listed in /dev?  i have an ipod that is showing up in lsusb, but won't appear on the desktop like it normally does03:10
jribicesword: right click on it, remove from panel.  Let me know if it still starts next time you login03:10
iceswordjrib, so you mean,if i remove it,it won't load again,even in background03:10
ScuniziNobleArc, are you defragging a windows box? if so you might want to do it from the "safe mode"03:10
owhThis is going to sound like a dumb question, but can someone remind me how I can "apt-get source" from a different version other than my current OS, that is, I'm running Feisty and I want to apt-get source from Hardy.03:10
Jack_SparrowNobleArc, the less free space on the drive the longer it takes to defrag03:10
iceswordjrib, k03:10
NobleArcI know, Jack_Sparrow.03:11
Jack_Sparrowowh, Dont. it wont work03:11
arrrghhhowh, don't do it.  why would you want to?03:11
nickrudowh: add the source repo for hardy03:11
NobleArcI'm going to be running a defragger at boot time, Scunizi, so it can move the system files.03:11
owhJack_Sparrow: I am not compiling it, I just need to get the source.03:11
NinjaPlimsolesright nighty night folks! 3am is an admirable bedtime03:11
arrrghhhowh, you can download the source online03:11
owhnickrud: How will I then access that repo?03:11
iceswordjrib, what about if i remove that update notifier03:12
ScuniziNinjaPlimsoles, you must be east of me and over the pond03:12
jribicesword: what about it?03:12
nickrudowh: if you're not sure, getting the source from packages.ubuntu.com would be simpler03:12
captineNinjaPlimsoles, no problem.  i will just re-install in a bit.  just burning the cd quickly03:12
NinjaPlimsolesScunizi, correct :P03:12
owhnickrud: Will that get me access to Hardy's version?03:12
nickrudowh: yes03:12
iceswordjrib, is it ok,if i remove that icon,that update-notifier won't run background03:12
NinjaPlimsolesScunizi, im also suffering from wisdom tooth pain, and a blocked nose03:12
owhnickrud: Excellent, tah.03:12
ScuniziNinjaPlimsoles, go to bed already..! you need a break03:13
jribicesword: I'm pretty sure there is a cron job that will update your repository list if that is what you mean03:13
etell\join #ubuntu-devel03:13
Jack_Sparrowowh, that will get you access to a source file in that repo but if you are not going to compile what are you going to do with it03:13
NinjaPlimsolesScunizi, what can I say.. i like helping :(03:13
owhFor those shaking their heads, I'm needing to make a debdiff of a bug fix, but I need to have the current Hardy version so it can be used when Hardy is released.03:13
* nickrud shakes head at owh 03:14
jetscreamerwhen is Laurel coming out?03:14
Alan_Mwhy not just get the hardy cd when it becomes official?03:14
LeChacalif i need a ton of packages and there dependencies that are only in the Debian repository is there a fast way to get them all other then searching and downloading them all by hand. These files are the dependencies for Debian Cluster Components.03:14
owhAlan_M: Because this bug fix will be on that cd.03:14
arrrghhhso where are usb devices listed in /dev?  i have an ipod that is showing up in lsusb, but won't appear on the desktop like it normally does03:14
jribowh: why not setup a chroot or virtualbox if you want to do things lie that?03:14
owhnickrud: :-) Any alternative suggestions?03:14
Alan_Mwouldnt..that..be..a better idea?03:14
jetscreamerLeChacal: apt-pinning perhaps03:14
chuckis there a new ubuntu release soon or something03:15
owhjrib: The fix is a one-liner to a bash script.03:15
Alan_Mchuck, yup03:15
Cpudan80chuck: april03:15
owhjrib: Seems a tad overkill.03:15
nickrudowh: that was a joke. And, running hardy in a vm would be a useful method03:15
Alan_Mits coming out officially in april chuck :)03:15
Cpudan80Has the artwork for Hardy been decided on yet?03:15
chuckoh i get this: http://mirror.cs.umn.edu/ubuntu-torrents/torrents.html03:15
NinjaPlimsolesarrrghhh, /dev/sdax03:15
Cpudan80guess I should ask +03:15
jribowh: yes, if this is all you are doing03:15
owhnickrud: Sorry, 747 over my head :)03:15
arrrghhhchuck, there's a 6 month release cycle with ubuntu.  so every april and october it seems.03:15
arrrghhhNinjaPlimsoles, hrm... ok.03:16
owhAll good, thanks all.03:16
chuy_maxhi, I might have found a bug in ktechlab, should I report this to ubuntu, or kde?03:16
nickrudowh: install virtualbox, and install hardy in that. #ubuntu+1 coould help you set up03:16
owhnickrud: I will as soon as I have some disk space to burn, right now I'm just hanging on :)03:16
Alan_Mchuy_max, I would say Kubuntu..is it a kubuntu program?03:16
SilentDisquick question for everyone.  from your experiences, what is a decent size for a / partition (excluding /home, including /tmp) for a more 'average' user?03:16
nickrudSilentDis: 10-15 gb would be spacious03:17
SilentDisnickrud: would i run into issue with 8gb?03:17
Alan_Mive got like 40+gb SilentDis, and ive yet to run out03:17
owhnickrud: For /root ?03:17
danbhfiveSilentDis: I think /tmp is on your ram, fyi03:17
livefoniksSilentDis:  I use 8GB, myself...that seems to be plenty.03:17
Alan_Mand its been..a while.03:17
owhnickrud: That seems a tad overkill.03:17
arrrghhhSilentDis, i run / with 6 gigs and /home gets everything else.03:18
nickrudSilentDis: you might, , for example if you were building a dvd03:18
MK5Can someone explain to me how to setup Windows VPN for NetworkManager03:18
iceswordnickrud, if i remove update notifier from panel,is that means there won't be process running like update notifier and notification daemon in background03:18
berlylabsanyone here know to fix a sound problem on ubuntu... it's telling me I have no plug ins or devices03:18
NinjaPlimsolesright, bedtime for me03:18
arrrghhhSilentDis, it really depends on how big the hdd is and where you're planning on storing things.03:18
SilentDisthis box is overkill.  200gb for /home, 10gb for a swap, and 90gb for /, i don't have these issues lmao03:18
NinjaPlimsolesnight folks03:18
LeChacaljetscreamer: so then you are saying add the Debian to my source.list and make this pinning file03:18
cottimahow do I setup raid on the live installer03:18
nickrudicesword: hm, I haven't really looked into how it's set up, if the gui thing does it or only monitors some other process03:18
livefoniks10GB for a swap, SilentDis?  Definite overkill there.03:19
cottimasoftraid, that is03:19
marbleslinger500 gig is enough no matter how you split it up03:19
posricesword ohh hi :)03:19
SilentDisarrrghhh: my mom's 'puter.  gonna give it a shot in the arm.  when i built it, it ran Ubuntu 6.10 with a mere 8gb drive in total.  i only gave / 3gb, which is WAY too small.  was trying to think of ways to solve this03:19
iceswordposr, hi03:19
jetscreamerLeChacal: i'm just saying it may be what you want... not sure.03:19
danbhfiveSilentDis: heh, I don't think that the kernel can even use that much swap, unless its the server version, or 64bit03:19
livefoniksSilentDis:  How much RAM in the machine?03:19
LeChacaljetscreamer: ok i will try it thank you03:19
SilentDislivefoniks: trust me, i'm no where near maxed out either.  there's an extra 20gb for windows (haven't booted it in a year or more), 25gb fat32 partition in there...03:20
owhcottima: Format the partition, set the partition type to Raid Auto Detect, restart the partitioner.03:20
arrrghhhSilentDis, hrm... 8 gigs is a big small.  buy her a 40 gig hdd.  they're cheapo i'm sure.03:20
nickrudSilentDis: I keep several 12gb partitions around for different installs. I've maxed out at 7 when I had a _lot_ installed, several desktops, etc03:20
owhcottima: Uh. s/format/create/03:20
berlylabsanyone know how to get ubuntu to reinstall a driver that waas installed but somehow disappeared03:20

berlylabscan anyone help?03:22

bluefoxxwhat plugin do i need to play .iso dvd inages in kaffeine?03:22
SilentDisso, in general, dedicating all of hda (8gb drive) to /, and then dropping in a spare 20g/40g/whatever i have sitting around for swap and home should suffice without issue?03:22
arrrghhhberlylabs, what do you mean, you have to be more descriptive.  what driver03:22
=== joecool_ is now known as joecool
berlylabsarrrrghhh : my sound just stopped and it tells me i have no gstreamer plugins or devices or something like that03:22
chenickrud: ATI Radeon Xpress 200M03:22
arrrghhhSilentDis, oh yea.  i mean if you gave everything to / and had a small swap (512mb or so) might also work.,...03:23
nickrudSilentDis: for most uses, yes. If mom isn't going to install a lot of stuff03:23
Jack_Sparrowmarbleslinger, Envy is not something we support in here.. it has improved, but still has issues03:23
marbleslingerok... worked for me03:23
ubotuCommon Sense: Just because you can, does not mean you should (and especially recommend to others). Think before you do. "Works for me" does not mean it is ok. The latest version of everything is not always useful if you aim for stability. Please see http://geekosophical.net/random/worksforme/03:23
arrrghhhSilentDis, or / gets 5 gigs and /home gets 2.5 gigs and swap gets 512mb.03:23
berlylabsexact error  The volume control did not find any elements and/or devices to control. This means either that you don't have the right GStreamer plugins installed, or that you don't have a sound card configured.03:23
SilentDisnickrud: she likes to 'play' in the add/remove programs area i've found, which resulted in this problem in the first place lol03:23
arrrghhhSilentDis, that's close tho... i'd recommend 6gigs min. for /.  and if she likes doin that, get her a bigger hdd or don't tell her the root pass lol03:24

rledge21Hi all - I'm trying to import a snippet in gedit, when I click the import button the filebrowser opens but everything in it is locked up.  I can move it and resize it but I cannot browse to the file.  Does anyone know a way to fix it - or a way to manually install snippets?03:25
owhcottima: It's the partition type that you select.03:25
arrrghhhberlylabs, it helps if you spell my name right.  autocomplete works here too :)  at any rate, do you use alsa for sound?03:25
nickrudche: system->admin->restricted manager, enable ati restricted. Reboot.  log in, run  fglrxinfo   in a terminal, make sure it's using ati 8.37.6 driver.   install xserver-xgl , log out and back in. System->prefs-appearance, effects tab, turn it on03:25
SilentDisjetscreamer: eh, i have spares sitting all over the place it seems.  they just keep collecting lol03:25
arrrghhhSilentDis, ouch... yea... hrm.  just give her a bigger hdd and burn that 8gig POS.03:25

chenickrud: ok, i will try03:25
berlylabsarrrghhh:i'm not sure what I use as it just worked after i installed this is the first issue I've had03:25
SilentDisarrrghhh: so, drop a 40g+ in there, and put / on a 10g partition?03:25
arrrghhhSilentDis, and you'll be golden my friend.03:26
chenickrud: how to install a xserver-xgl03:26
jetscreameryou can get by with 6, but it gets tight03:26

arrrghhhberlylabs, hrm... that's very strange, what changed in the system?  hardware or software.03:27
TannDoes anyone know where the alsa-base config files are03:27
arrrghhhSilentDis, well yea, but with a 30+ gig /home partition she should be fine.03:27

arrrghhhberlylabs, gcj plugin?03:28
SilentDisanother question, just so i know where to start digging... she's gonna be doing EVDO on the machine.  does Ubuntu 7.10 have a dialer on it, or will i be mucking with pppd for a bit to get the packages installed?  (yes, her phone works with 7.10, i tried it on my kubuntu box)03:28
berlylabsyeah for mozilla03:28
nickrudvikku: if you're lucky sudo apt-get -f install will fix that03:28
owhcottima: No, it shouldn't. What is the problem you're experiencing?03:28
nithTann: Dunno if they're the base configs, I've got some it /usr/share/alsa03:28
berlylabsarrrghhh: yeah for mozilla03:28
Jack_Sparrowche, You need it if you want smooth video and effects, you just need to turn off effects for better gaming03:28

Tannok. thx03:29
=== nith is now known as Nith
nickrudjack-desktop: no idea, depmod -a is to rebuild the kernel module index (roughly) xserver-xgl has no kernel modules03:29
arrrghhhberlylabs, and you've tried rebooting i'm assuming?03:29
berlylabsyes many times03:29
nickrudche: it can, yes. But, you can't run the desktop effects without it on ati 200m03:29
Tannnith: I was just wondering so i can copy the config files from a live cd to my  comp03:29
vikku<nickrud : same error03:30
chejack_sparrow, nickrud: aanhaa ok thanks03:30
Jack_Sparrownickrud, I pulled it from one of the tutorials....    thought I would ask.. goodnight03:30
biouserquick, I need to open a 'listen.asp' radio over the internet, what should I get?03:30
SilentDisa better way to form that question...  Does Ubuntu 7.10 have any GUI dialers available on it's CD?  or, at minimum, does it have the pppd stuff for me to get it working from a term, then pull a gui one?03:30
combatwombathey guys03:30
NithTann: why not just purge and reinstall?03:30
nickrudJack_Sparrow: if someone compiles the fglrx from ati, it'd be useful03:30
Frederickmy x server hangs and the whole sstem seems to hang I cant evn kill it03:30
arrrghhhberlylabs, i'm not sure... i use kde, and instructions for audio troubleshooting are vastly different.03:30
berlylabsanyone here wanna help? sound just stopped working03:31
FrederickIve tried the new cd it also hangs I cant even have an instalr in text mode I think03:31
Frederickany ideas?03:31
nickrudvikku: I'm not sure what's causing that error.it's in /var/lib/dpkg/info/acpid.postinst , but what's actually happening ..03:31
arrrghhhFrederick, have you tried the text mode installer?03:32
Frederickhow do I do it?03:32
TannNith: oh. ok03:32
nickrudSilentDis: pppconf , with pon/poff in terminal03:32
biouser.asp, radio on the internet, what program can handle it?03:32
nickrudSilentDis: erm, pppconfig that is03:33
Nithgood question03:33
arrrghhhFrederick, ...uh download the alternate installer cd?  when you choose to download, it asks if you want the desktop version or the "alternate" installer - you want to download the alternate iso.03:33
SilentDisnickrud: so i'll be doing a bit of mucking at first.  this HAS to be GUI for her to do it herself later.  can you recommend a GTK+ dialer app?  (i use EVDO myself, but i'm using kubuntu & kppp works well)03:33
cottimaowh, To start out, I have three options: guided entire disk, guided largest free space, and manual.  Guided continues onto user info: "Who are you?"  In manual, I only file system formats, no raid option.03:33
arrrghhhi don't understand why they don't have the alternate text install on the same ISO as the livecd.  seems like it'd be pretty easy, all the same info just how it's installed.03:33
Scunizibiouser, streamturner? VLC? maybe both will do it.. but if it's an .asp file that might be pretty much MS .03:33
biousercan someone tell me if they can get that feed?03:34
arrrghhhSilentDis, why not just install kubuntu on her machine?03:34
biouserwhat is asp?03:34
biouserno amarok?03:34
arrrghhhbiouser, google it.  it's a file stream usually.03:34
nickrudSilentDis:  network manager applet has a ppp dialer, but I've never used it. My favorite for gnome disappeared03:34
chenickrud: i installed xserver-xgl it working smooth, now can i enable compiz?03:35
owhcottima: In the manual section, choose the disk you want to partition, then inside that you can setup partitions, inside that you can chose the partition type. If you have multiple identical drives you can be funky and do it automatically with one drive, go back, then chose the other drive, do the same - so the partitions are identical, then go back a third time, choose manual, then set the types, then finally go back and choose manu03:35
nickrudSilentDis: gnome-ppp sounds usable03:35
voxi'm trying to install gutsy server as a xen virtual machine, but it wont boot, just says "loading..." and stays there. any ideas?03:35

fotoflohey all03:36
owhcottima: You can set the partition type from within manual.03:37
chenickrud: thank you so much, i solved my last problem.03:37
fotoflogot a little question - is there a way to download all MX records that point to my domain?03:37
arrrghhhSilentDis, hrm... i dunno, i think kde is friendlier, but gnome does tend to hide things so newbies can't get in too much trouble.  kde just seems to be more mature.  and i'm not starting a flame war here people, so don't get pissed at my PERSONAL opinion.03:37
nickrudche: one more thing:  install compizconfig-settings-manager , it'll be at system->prefs->advanced desktop03:37

berlylabsanyone here help me trouble shoot audio suddenly not working03:38
fotoflobosanac: that sounds like a bad idea, unless they have their own login and password03:38
SilentDisbosanac: are you behind a router?03:38
MasterShrek!ssh | bosanac03:39
ubotubosanac: SSH is the Secure SHell protocol. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSHHowto for usage. Putty is a nice SSH client for Windows; it can be found at http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/03:39
bosanachmm thats not a bad idea dude03:39
SilentDisbosanac: what fotoflo said, as well.  are you giving them YOUR username/password, or their OWN username/password?03:39
bosanaci like that03:39
Flannelbosanac: SSH is open to people if they have a login/pass to your box03:39
nickrudberlylabs: wish I could, but sound for me is a baffler03:39
MasterShrekIF you have an ssh server installed03:39
fotoflobosanac: and you should make sure you restrict their access, or else they will take over your machine03:40

fotoflonickrud: hey do you know how to do a reverse MX lookup?03:40
berlylabsMasterShrek: audio card03:40

SilentDisrandom question of the day:  are there any active viruses out in the wild right now for linux in general?03:41
cabrioleur_berlylabs, reinstall what? Hardware should be plugged manually :-)03:41
MasterShrekberlylabs, audio cards are such a pain lol, if you type: lsmod | grep snd     in a terminal does anything come up? (no need to paste it)03:41

_bosanacFlannel: i install it and how to enable it ?03:42
SilentDisMasterShrek: thanks.  i'm more worried about mom, without a hardware firewall, using EVDO, and finally manage to screw something up.  i've kept her pretty safe otherwise :)03:42
Flannel_bosanac: It's "enabled" by default.  People just need to connect to your computer, and they can login03:42
MasterShrekberlylabs, on second thought can you paste the output to pastebin for me?03:43
berlylabsyeah give me a min03:43
_baany ideas when trying to install 7.10 click install goes to busybox?03:43
MasterShrek_ba, have yo checked the disc for defects? should be an option right after your POST03:43
cabrioleur_MasterShrek, it's not necessary truth. Linux and attached to it software have enough exploits to be used by software without root priv.03:43
LoganStarnestommy: the alternate cd worked. but i'm stuck at the stage where it's looking for the cd-rom, which is funny because the cd is running the ubuntu???03:43

berlylabsMasterShrek: what?03:45
MasterShrekberlylabs, look at the link ubotu pasted for you03:45
Alan_MSilentDis: thats correct03:46
Flannel!hardy | SilentDis03:46
ubotuSilentDis: Hardy Heron is the code name for the next release of Ubuntu (8.04-LTS), due April 2008 - For more info, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardyHeron - CONSIDER IT TO BE PRE BETA (ALPHA) SOFTWARE - Discussion and support in #ubuntu+1, NOT #ubuntu03:46
nickrudSilentDis: when 8.04 is released, you can upgrade in place over the net, without having to reinstall03:46
owhcottima: Is it working for you now?03:46
LoganHey can anyone help me at the stage (Detect and mount CD-rom) . ubuntu 7.10 .. i don't get this i mean the cd is running fine how come it can't detect it???03:46
SilentDisnickrud: right, but would you trust your mom to actually be patient enough as the download happens?  mine burns water in saucepans, and yells at the microwave to hurry up!03:46
cellofellowputterson: in the file /boot/grub/menu.lst, find the line that reads "defopts" and add "vga=792" to that line. Then run "sudo update-grub" and reboot. And hope your video card supports framebuffers.03:46
nickrudSilentDis: tell her to do it before going to bed :)03:47
cellofellowputterson:(mine, sadly, doesn't)03:47
puttersoncellofellow, ok brb03:47
Alan_MHardy is pretty darn stable atm, but even for the guys who love a challenge, i wouldnt suggest it just yet :)03:47
SilentDisnickrud: that is FARRR too many instructions.  she'd be likely to start it, then shut down the computer and go to bed lol03:47
ScuniziLogan, you have to burn the cd as an image AND at the slowest speed possible.  If you can read the iso file on the cd with windows explorer then you burned it as data instead of an image.03:47
TonrenSomeone, anyone, please help me make Firefox stop crashing with Flash.  I have Firefox on Kubuntu 7.10, on a sound card that doesn't support hw mixing.  Why does sound-enabled Flash keep crashing Firefox?03:48
puttersoncellofellow, I can't find the line with defopts in it03:48
Alan_MIf its just 1 file on the cd...then you burned it wrong Logan :)03:48
SilentDisi have learned through this exactly why sysadmins become BOFH though lol03:48
jetscreamervikku: probably apt-get -f install might help03:48
nickrudSilentDis: sounds like it's a chance for you to have a few hours of quality time with mom ;)03:48
Flannelputterson: Its close to the top, it's commented out.03:48
LoganScunizi: i've done this correctly, it shows up on window as a browser..03:48
cellofellowputterson: oops, it's "# defoptions=blah blah blah"03:48
Flannelputterson: DONT uncomment it.  And actually, vga=ask might be better than a definite value.03:48
LoganI've burned it right, it boots up and i'm in the process of installing it, but when it gets to the Detect and mount Cd-rom stage it just won't work from here03:49
puttersoncellofellow, its at 791 right now03:49
cellofellowputterson: don't remove that hash symbol, that's line is for update-grub to read, while the un-commented lines are for GRUB itself to read.03:49
SilentDisnickrud: why don't i just hand you a gun so you can blow my brains out right now?  family functions, sure, then i can loose myself in meal prep lol03:49
ScuniziLogan, what do you mean as a browser?  look at the cd with your file manager and see if you only see one file.03:49
biouserdid anyone have any luck with that?03:49
cellofellowputterson: that line has a double hash does it not?03:49
cellofellowputterson: I see that line, it's an example.03:49
puttersoncellofellow, oh yes sorry03:49

cellofellowputterson: a screen will ask you what modes you want to pick, and if it does that just hit spacebar and undo it.03:51

cabrioleur_niknik, install ntfs-3g (you can do it during live cd), and gparted will support resizing of ntfs.03:57

mneptokogre: aircrack is a cracking tool that is mostly designed for malicious purposes. all we have is your affirmation that you're using it locally. there are too many legitimate support questions relating to more conventional packages for #ubuntu to start supporting what amounts to cracking tools.03:58
owhcottima: Pleasure.03:59
biousercabrioleur_, thanks for the tip, I'm about to try it.03:59
PendetaAlan_M, yes, and greatly appreciated! This support channel is the main reason I'm trying to switch all our computers to Ubuntu.03:59
puttersoncellofellow, I have a display, its not headless, I just don't want to run a gui03:59
pyrakwhat rss reader should i use?03:59
cellofellowputterson: ctrl+alt+del should restart, and when it does, when GRUB shows up hit ESC to see the menu, select Ubuntu in the menu and hit 'c' to edit, and remove the vga bit. Don't forget to do that on in the file afterword.03:59
mneptokpyrak: try the Sage extension to Firefox03:59
Alan_MAwesome, thats what a ubuntero as myself loves to hear! :D03:59
LoganAlan_M, so does this mean i have to download the server version... lol man i'm glad i've unlimted broadband04:00
Odd-rationalepyrak: lifera is not too bad.04:00
cellofellowputterson: maybe it's not c, maybe it's e, I forget.04:00
puttersoncellofellow, can I just ssh in and change the file back and run update-grub?04:00
mneptokpyrak: then add a 0 to your gateway address04:00
Alan_MLogan, you would probably be wasting your time.04:00

pyrakmneptok, big enough jerk to put up with my noobitude :P04:01
Alan_MWhats the same as a desktop?04:01

LoganI've a HP machine here the specs arn't that fantastic so, i mean it's called a server but i use it as a desktop, so why would i be waisting my time?04:02
biouserthnks mneptok04:02
mneptokLogan: why install the GUI environment stuff on a server?04:02
Alan_MOh, i see :)04:02
Alan_Mthats the question i was getting to mneptok :)04:02
Alan_Munless your using xubuntu desktop..on a server..because your a new administrator.04:03
LoganBecause to me it's not a server. i've never used it as a server it's a desktop to me... It's just called a server on HP04:03
cabrioleur_Logan, maybe you should check slackware out. It comes with everything you need (server wise), and works better on older hardware.04:03

LoganPentium 4 (3.0GHz), 2GB Ram, 80GB Sata Drive.04:04

hekatontarchosI'm trying to install Ubuntu 7.10 to my G3 iMac, but I'm having some issues.  Can someone help?04:04

Alan_Mhekatontarchos, unless such issues are stated, probably not :)04:04
talcitehey guys, is there any way to require VNC to use key authentication?04:05
cabrioleur_Logan, my server is 486, 16mb ram, lack of graphic card, and it's in my shoe-box with no fans, so it's quiet and stealth :)04:05
Alan_M!pm | Kalamansi04:05
ubotuKalamansi: Please ask your questions in the channel so that other people can also benefit AND help you. Please don't PM a user in the channel without asking first, some find it rude.04:05
talciteI don't feel good about using arbitrary passwords...04:05
hekatontarchosrunning the live install, live-powerpc, check, check-powerpc, or any of the drivers options causes my computer to restart, losing the installation process04:06
Kalamansii heard from someone that ubuntu is now able to handle NTFS partitions reliably, is that true? this guy i know was going to use those little external cases to set up some NAS for his laptops at home, but they only handle fat32 and fat32 isn't good for partitions over 32 gig I've got an older desktop system that i could set up for him with ubuntu it's just some p1 cpu but that should be enough, the NAS cases can't have a lot of power in them eithr es04:06
LoganCool, so what could be the problem with the not detecting the drive it's using at that moment, i don't understand it?04:06
puttersoncellofellow, blah the highest I can get with vga=ask is 80x6004:07
cabrioleur_Kalamansi, yes, linux is quite reliable with ntfs-3g04:07
TonrenSomeone, anyone, please help me make Firefox stop crashing with Flash.  I have Firefox on Kubuntu 7.10, on a sound card that doesn't support hw mixing.  Why does sound-enabled Flash keep crashing Firefox?04:08
Alan_MAnd Kalamansi, thank you for your understanding, i wasnt trying to be rude throwing that at you, just explaining the ways of this room.04:08
hekatontarchosthe farthest I've gotten is live-nosplash-powerpc video=ofonly.  that gets me to busybox, but when I type modprobe ide-core and then exit, it gives me a bunch of '........ could not be found' an drops me at a busybox prompt again04:08
cabrioleur_Tonren, try to install alsa-oss.04:08
wng-how much HD space would be needed to host a local repository with just the packages needed for a installation?04:08
Starnestommywng-: I would estimate 1 to 2.5 GB04:08
wng-Starnestommy, and how about the complete official repos?04:09
Alan_Mwng-: a few hundred GB's04:09
cabrioleur_wng-, the size of the install cd.04:09
wng-Alan_M, how many hundreds?04:09
Alan_Mthat, im not sure of.04:09
wng-I have to decide what size/how many drives the machine is going to have04:09
hekatontarchosI've also tried booting with live-nosplash-powerpc video=ofonly break=top    but that gets me to busybox, and doesn't let me type04:10
wng-to tell my boss tomorrow04:10
Alan_Mif your thinking about mirroroing the repositories, you might have to have a few TB hard drive..and a dang good bandwith..like almost fiber optical04:10
LoganSo will i download the Server version guys?04:10
phynixwng: it is really easy to set up your own repo on a local machine04:10
pyrakmneptok, sage is pretty neat.  only thing it's missing is offline browsing04:10
cabrioleur_wng-, I think the whole repos you can fit on 3, 4 dvd's.04:10
Alan_Mi might be wrong, but yeah.04:10
wng-3 or 4 dvds is quite a difference than a few hundred gbs04:10
cabrioleur_wng-, yup. It's not that much of it in the official channels.04:11
Alan_Mi saw on the ubuntu page it was a huge ammount.04:11
wng-i know debian is like 40GB fully installed04:11
Tonrencabrioleur_: It's already installed.04:11
Alan_Mi just didnt know exactly, but its definately there for you to read04:11
phynixis there a way to get the packages off of the cd and just make a repo04:11
wng-cabrioleur_, you'd say 100GB would be more than enough?04:11
wng-phynix, yea, I'm pretty sure there is04:11
cabrioleur_Tonren, download plugin from the website and replace the one you have.04:12
LoganHey where would i get drivers for the cd-rom?04:12
cabrioleur_wng-, that's plenty.04:12
wng-should be as easy as moving files and setting up apt04:12
hekatontarchosany ideas?  Alan_M?04:12
wng-cabrioleur_, thanks :)04:12
Alan_MNone hekatontarchos04:12
phynixcause i made a scrip to compile the debs from a folder and host them using apache04:12
Alan_Mthats also a reason i threw the private message thing at you, not everyone knows all the answers :)04:12
phynixnot compile sorry make a package.gz files04:12
hekatontarchosI read some suggestions to use the alternate install CD, but the description of it didn't leave me confident that I would be any better off with it04:13

lordleemoToddEDM: sudo cp -p /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list_backup   then   sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list  and remove the # before the word deb05:36
Paddy_EIREcan I start another windowed graphical session of say kde windowed in gnome ??05:37
john_what is gksudo?05:37
erstazilinuxmonkey: irssi05:37
erstazijohn_: graphical sudo (:05:37
Odd-rationalejohn_: Sudo with a graphical frontend05:37
macogwToddEDM: youre supposed to use gksudo on gui apps because sudo doesnt check X authority so it can break permissions05:37
john_oh man thats cool05:37
john_If I had known that...05:37
BananaMonerstazi: THANKS!!! It finally worked!~05:37
macogwlinuxmonkey: irssi05:37
erstaziBananaMon: conky to you05:38
erstazilinuxmonkey: screen + irssi (adding on)05:38
macogwPaddy_EIRE: dont think so.  i think kde has a way of doing it though...05:38
erstaziBananaMon: maybe you can help with my issue05:38
BananaMonerstazi: I had to take some of the inital windowing lines from your script....and after some more stuff like that, it works even without an extra delay script05:38
Kaneda15anyone seen these errors before when attempting to boot from the ubuntu cd? or know how to deal with them?05:38
Kaneda15[82.160787] Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available partitions:05:38
Kaneda15[82.160921] Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8,1)05:38
nobaraAnyone here can give me a hand with a problem I have?05:38
BananaMonerstazi: totally thanks!~ yeah of course, I'll try05:38
BananaMonerstazi: what's up05:38
Paddy_EIREmacogw: no probs.. I'll look into it...05:38
erstaziBananaMon: look at http://c-wd.net/ath/05:38
kayce_i'm having a problem with my x server, when i try to use "New login in a windows", i get the error "The x server failed, Perhaps it is not configured well.", i've tried to use "sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg", but this did nothing to help05:38
Geoffrey2ok, I'm back to my old question....I have several different computers, some running Windows, some Ubuntu, that I want to be able to access files on desktop running ubuntu....what's a good method for doing this?05:38
erstaziBananaMon: I am totally lost05:38
BananaMonerstazi: k05:38
BananaMonerstazi: just a sec05:38
ToddEDMok i have the  sources file open, but where do i parte the lines i need to paste... just anywhere?05:39
erstaziGeoffrey2: you could setup openssh on all of them... there is openssh for windows05:39
kayce_if this is not the correct channel, can someone tell me where to go please05:39
macogwkayce_: try "xrandr --auto"?  its a crazy auto-config X thing05:39
pabixHello! I am looking to a way to downscale an image with convert with a file weight target (e.g. 96 kilobytes). Do you have a convert option to do it?05:39
erstaziToddEDM: at the bottom preferably05:39
macogwGeoffrey2: SAMBA05:39
Odd-rationaleToddEDM: The end would be fine05:39
macogwToddEDM: just add to the end05:39
kayce_macogw: thank you05:39
erstaziwb J_-05:39
ToddEDMok thank you guys05:39
pabixGeoffrey2, access... read/write or read-only?05:39
Paddy_EIREyou are on the correct channel05:40
Odd-rationaleerstazi: I wasn't trying to copy you, you just got first... :P05:40
erstaziOdd-rationale: its ok05:40
john_if I run an openssh server on my pc, will this put me at risk for my system to be compromised?05:40
pabixAnd do you want a command-line access or only access to the files?05:40
macogwjohn_: yes05:40
erstaziOdd-rationale: I am trying to figure my issue too05:40
nobaraAnyone knows how I can remove a package that I installed with sh05:40
macogwjohn_: if you keep the root account locked, nobody can get in as root, so thats good05:40
Odd-rationaleerstazi: me too.05:40
john_even if I have it set up with a password?05:40
macogwjohn_: but given enough time and computer power, your username and password could be brute forced05:40
ryan_mandelbaumi just installed mp32ogg now how do i use it?05:40
erstaziOdd-rationale: what is your problem? maybe you can help me if I help you?05:40
Paddy_EIREnobara: what was it05:41
erstazimacogw: jails (:05:41
nobaraPaddy_EIRE: netbeans05:41
BananaMonerstazi: so your wirless card is not picking up a certain connection?05:41
erstaziBananaMon: correct05:41
ToddEDMi clicked save , but it says i dont have permission to save sources.list05:41
erstaziBananaMon: is that enough output and data to see anything?05:41
macogwjohn_: keeping root account locked is good because even though they know the username is root, they can never get in as there's no password that would ever be correct05:41
macogwerstazi: thats a BSD thing05:41
Odd-rationaleerstazi: Mine is actually very simple. Does the jamendo plugin for rhythmbox work for you?05:41
erstaziBananaMon: I thought of every bloody thing05:41
BananaMonerstazi: hmm...let me go over the outputs05:41
john_ohhh right05:41
macogwerstazi: there are no jails in linux, only chroots.05:41
john_dangit... i shoulda disabled it05:41
=== lipsin_ is now known as lipsin1
erstaziOdd-rationale: I use amarok05:41
Odd-rationaleerstazi: What's yours?05:41
macogwerstazi: chroots can, contrary to popular belief, be broken out of05:41
_Oz_hallo all05:41
rhineheart_mOkay this is the case.. what if for servers where only the root user using it.. Is there a likelihood to infect the system without an antivirus?05:42
erstazimacogw: pishposh! ported05:42
kayce_macogw: "xrandr --auto" did nothing05:42
macogwjohn_: if you set a strong password and change it every few months, you're ok05:42
Odd-rationale_Oz_: Hello!05:42
erstazimacogw: oh I know chrooted environments are not totally safe05:42
=== lipsin1 is now known as lipsinV2
macogwkayce_: ok. idk then.05:42
john_i have an insanely strong password05:42
erstazihi _Oz_05:42
_Oz_hi erstazi05:42
john_took me 2 weeks to memorize it05:42
kayce_macogw: ok, do you know what channel would have someone that would know?05:42
macogwjohn_: so do i. i estimate itd take 3 months of constant trying to brute force my password even with access to the hash05:42
nobarajohn_: 2 weeks O.O05:42
macogwkayce_: #xorg05:42
john_thats always nice to hear :)05:43
ToddEDMOdd-rationale:  im getting a popup that says i do not have permission to save sources.list05:43
kayce_macogw: thank you much05:43
erstazi_Oz_: fancy to see you here (:05:43
ryan_mandelbaumi just installed mp32ogg now how do i use it?05:43
macogwToddEDM: you didnt "gksudo gedit" then.05:43
Geoffrey2read/write access....that way instead of having 4-5 copies of the same file, one on each computer, I can access everything from one computer...supposedly the point of networking computers in the first place :)05:43
john_well I figure if somone wants access to my files on... well nothing really im just playing with linux they have just wasted a few weeks of their life brut forcing05:43
Odd-rationaleToddEDM: Did you edit it with sudo/gksudo05:43
macogwToddEDM: you need the gksudo to make you root05:43
erstaziGeoffrey2: Samba or SSH, choose your pick05:43
ToddEDMohhh ok , i had a sudo one open05:43
nobaraPaddy_EIRE: no idea?05:43
john_all they can get is a fun MOTD with an ascii art of ubuntu :)05:43
macogwToddEDM: ok sudo shouldve worked too though05:43
ToddEDMit worked now guys , thank you05:44
macogwToddEDM: it works, its just not recommended05:44
Geoffrey2erstazi: well, I have Samba set up, I just need to figure out how to go back and undo the domain controller setup so it'll work with xp home edition05:44
ximspeaking of sudo, any reason why the same password wouldnt work for su as sudo?05:44
macogwxim: root account is locked05:44
Odd-rationalexim: You set a root password?05:44
macogwxim: there is no password for it at all05:45
erstaziGeoffrey2: or you could even setup apache2 as a web server05:45
ximbut sudo doesnt goto root?05:45
erstaziGeoffrey2: it depends on how much you want that data to be secured inside that network05:45
ximim a newb i thout super user meant root05:45
nobaraHello, anyone here knos how I can remove a program that installed using sh command?05:45
BananaMonerstazi: I am on a standard desktop, wired connection, so I don't really know much about wireless connections on laptops. I don't see anything in the outputs, perhaps if you connect to a network that is open and compare the outputs then.....05:45
macogwxim:  if you want to "su" use "sudo -s" or "sudo su" if you want to "su -" use "sudo -i" or "sudo su -"05:45
Odd-rationalexim: It uses the user's pass word not root's05:45
AprilisAll right, I need help.  I had to install Ubuntu because Windows wasn't being recognized by the harddisk, but I've decided to make do with it for now.05:45
erstaziBananaMon: done that (:05:45
BananaMonerstazi: I'm going to google it though, and see what comes up05:45
macogwxim: it doesnt su (switch user) to root.  it just runs that command as root05:45
BananaMonerstazi: can you connect to other open networks?05:45
john_Thanks alot guys,  I always find plenty of help here.  untill next time I have a noob quesiton.  take care05:45
erstaziBananaMon: I dropped the WPA2 security and went open and tested05:45
AprilisI am having trouble getting any .avi files I've downloaded to play--and having trouble downloading some to begin with!05:45
AprilisI'm using Azureus.05:45
ximic thanks05:46
macogwnobara: umm well it shouldve come with an uninstaller05:46
erstaziBananaMon: I have busted my brains for hours over this05:46
Odd-rationalexim: User get root access by deing added to the sudoers file. They use their own passwd for sudo, not root's05:46
macogwnobara: sh is just telling the script to execute in a shell05:46
Geoffrey2erstazi: well, I'm using a private network address range behind a router, so I'm not sure how much more securing I'd need05:46
* nobara macogw: well05:46
bruenigsh invokes the /bin/sh executable05:46
BananaMonerstazi: maybe it's the router then. Maybe the router is rejecting the connection from your card, instead of that problem being with your card05:46
bruenigit is a program05:46
erstaziGeoffrey2: so, you could, if you don't like samba, either use apache2 or ssh or whatever05:46
bruenigthe script becoems an argument to that program05:46
BananaMonerstazi: what is the router/server? what company/model05:46
erstaziBananaMon: it worked in windows05:46
kayce_macogw: there appears to be no one present in #xorg05:46
erstaziBananaMon: Linksys WRT54G (:05:47
erstaziBananaMon: the router works with my Nokia 77005:47
BananaMonerstazi: yeah exactly, maybe the router does not identify the linux drivers, or maybe because of closed-source technology, it is black listed05:47
macogwerstazi: one of the old ones that runs linux or the new crappy ones?05:47
macogwBananaMon: those run linux05:47
erstazimacogw: older05:47
BananaMonerstazi: hm..the WRT is a great router, let me look it up05:47
erstazimacogw: DD-WRT05:47
nobaramacogw: and where I can find the uninstaler?05:47
BananaMonerstazi: yeah05:47
BananaMonerstazi: oh you use DDWRT, I love that stuff05:47
BananaMonerstazi: let me google05:47
erstazimacogw: the issue: http://c-wd.net/ath/05:48
macogwnobara: shouldve come with it. if it didnt....umm...too bad.05:48
Geoffrey2erstazi: it's not a matter of like or dislike....when I was trying to set something up, I was referred to directions on setting up Samba and openldap, only problem being XP Home hasn't a clue what to do with domains.....so I need to go back and undo the domain controller part of it05:48
macogwxim /quit05:48
AprilisMaybe I should be more specific.  Whenever I try to play an .avi file, it says this:  An error occured.  Could not determine type of stream.05:48
nobaramacogw: too bad? O.O05:48
_Oz_does everyone pretty much agree that VLC is the best video player in ubuntu?05:48
ximi thought i was inthe terminal05:48
manic12is there anybody here who knows about opengl/glx stuff?05:48
nobaramacogw: no way of removing it?05:48
ryan_mandelbaumi just installed mp32ogg now how do i use it?05:48
macogwnobara: well you could read the install script and see what it did and undo all of that by hand..05:48
erstazixim: I do that a lot, don't worry (:05:48
macogwAprilis: do you have codecs?05:48
macogw_Oz_: yeah pretty much05:49
AprilisMan, this channel is much busier than I could have ever imagined.  Can someone please PM me?  I need help with very noobish stuff.  I just had Ubuntu installed this weekend, and nothing is working.05:49
macogw_Oz_: i still use totem because im dumb05:49
_Oz_macogw: heheh05:49
nobaraI can't even open the .sh file05:49
Odd-rationale_Oz_: That or mplayer05:49
Aprilismacogw:  I have no idea, honestly.  I don't know anything.  I am like the lowest level of noob.05:49
erstazi_Oz_: I got stuck using amarok because my step-daughter wanted her ipod music ):05:49
macogwAprilis: applications -> add/remove.  click the thing in the top right to make it show all software available, then search for ubuntu restricted extras (or ubuntu-restricted-extras) and install that05:49
mosibfuAprilis, sounds like you dont have the gstreamer plugins that supply you with certain codecs05:49
_Oz_speak of the devil, right as I say that VLC freezes up on me05:49
erstaziAprilis: everyone has a beginning05:50
CyclonutHowdy folks - so, ive got a weird issue with sound.05:50
_Oz_erstazi: I like amarok :)05:50
Cyclonutafter using Pandora (http://www.pandora.com) often, my sound will stop working05:50
macogwAprilis: thats ok.  i really ticked off a kid at my school because i asked him everything when i started using ubuntu..and he's not even a linux user. he's a freebsd user.05:50
erstazi_Oz_: are you busy?05:50
Cyclonutit is like pandora crashes alsa05:50
Cyclonutif it helps, I am using realtek integrated sound05:50
_Oz_not terribly so, erstazi05:50
erstazi_Oz_: mind if you look at http://c-wd.net/ath/ ?05:50
macogwerstazi: why not Exaile?  It's GTK Amarok.  My sister uses Rhythmbox for her iPOd05:51
CyclonutI have restarted alsa-utils to no avail05:51
Aprilismacogw:  Show all available applications?05:51
erstazimacogw: did things in a hurry 1 year ago, never switched back05:51
cjaeOdd-rationale, ok where are the login wavs kept?05:51
macogwAprilis: yes05:51
BananaMonerstazi: do you get limited connectivity mssgs? or can you not even find the network?05:51
Odd-rationalecjae: /usr/share/sounds05:51
nobarawell thanks guys05:51
nobarahave a good night rest05:51
erstazimacogw: and over 10,000 mp3's, its hard to imagine loading another player with that collection05:51
_Oz_erstazi: oh man, I'm the wrong guy to ask for this. :( I've never successfully gotten a laptop running on wireless in ubuntu.05:51
macogwAprilis: codecs are what tell the computer how to decode songs and videos.  different types of files use different ones.  because of stupid US patent laws, Ubuntu isn't allowed to include them05:51
erstaziBananaMon: cannot even find any networks, even walked outside where I know my Nokia 770 can find them05:52
macogwerstazi: haha i see05:52
erstaziBananaMon: I think its not scanning, but I am clueless on this wifi networking05:52
Aprilismacogw:  All right, I'm installing ubuntu restricted extras.  This is the codecs?05:52
macogwerstazi: one thing i *love* about rhythmbox is that unlike banshee it watches my library properly and just grabs them when it sees something new05:52
erstaziBananaMon: I just plug in the WPA2 passphrase and I am done thats all05:52
_Oz_what do I type in the terminal to get a list of my processes so I can find the UID to kill?  VLC is frozen and I can't shut it down.05:52
erstazi_Oz_: htop or top05:53
BananaMonerstazi: are you client mode? because that won't work05:53
Cyclonuterstazi - ps -a05:53
macogwAprilis: its more than just the codecs. itll also get you flash, microsoft fonts (like Times New Roman), and a couple other things I can't remember. flash, i think... everything you need, basically05:53
cjaeOdd-rationale, so just rename new file to login.wav and delete old one?05:53
erstaziBananaMon: clientmode?05:53
TorikunCheck out compiz on the eee pc, http://rusher.webhop.org/wordpress/?p=8505:53
Cyclonuterstazi: or, ps -a | grep vlc05:53
macogwAprilis: oh i said flash twice.05:53
Cyclonuterstazi - or skipping that, pkill vlc05:53
macogwAprilis: java tooo, i think05:53
erstaziCyclonut: ty tell _Oz_05:53
l815what's a good language translator program?05:53
Odd-rationalecjae: No. Go to System --> Pref --> Sounds and change the login sound05:53
Aprilismacogw:  This is wonderful!  It looks like it's going to take a while, but it'll be worth it.  I've been missing Times New Roman something fierce.05:53
Cyclonuterstazi: hah, lines are blending together, sorry05:53
erstazil815: http://babelfish.altavista.com (:05:54
erstaziCyclonut: its ok05:54
Cyclonut_Oz_: ps -a | grep vlc to get the UID. Alternatively, use pkill vlc to skip the UID part05:54
l815erstazi, yes but i want a program :P05:54
BananaMonerstazi: WRT works in 2 modes, client and WDS. If you are in client mode, then the problem you are describing will occur, though it should occur for ALL wireless clients....is that the case?05:54
=== lipsinV2 is now known as lipsin
erstaziBananaMon: ah, no not client mode05:54
erstaziBananaMon: its not the router, I can say that05:54
Odd-rationale_Oz_: One way kill is to do alt+f2 and type in xkill. Then click on the frozen window. Sometimes this doesn't kill it properly though...05:54
=== LinuxMonkey2 is now known as LinuxMonkey
erstaziBananaMon: I removed the security at this moment too05:55
Aprilismacogw:  Man, you guys are so nice.  I've tried asking people on another channel in another server, and they all called me stupid and said I didn't deserve to use Ubuntu.  :<05:55
BananaMonerstazi: oh, so you can connect wirelessly from say windows?05:55
_Oz_thanks, Odd-rationale05:55
erstaziBananaMon: yes05:55
_Oz_and cyclonut05:55
erstaziBananaMon: and with my nokia 77005:55
Cyclonut_Oz_: np05:55
BananaMonerstazi: ah...05:55
macogwAprilis: if you dont mind the suggestion, check out the Liberation Fonts.  they're metric compatible with (same size as) Arial, Times, and Courier, but i think they look nicer. i especially like the serifs on Liberation Serif (Red Hat's answer to Times New Roman) http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/multiverse/libe/liberation-fonts/ttf-liberation_0.1-0.1_all.deb05:55
Cyclonut_Oz_: using pkill is my favorite, though :)05:55
erstaziAprilis: what?!?! Ubuntu is the AOL of Linux05:55
macogwAprilis: they're @$$holes05:55
AprilisI know, right!05:55
AprilisIt wasn't even my choice.05:56
k1roI want to use my second drive as Data but I dont see linux doesnt detect (i think) the drive05:56
erstaziAprilis: ignore them, this is the official IRC channel05:56
paul---I have multiple ip addresses on my dedicated server, and want the ability to rate limit by IP and measure bandwidth by IP. I've investigated this endlessly.. but snmp is flawed as it only measures bw on the interface (eth0) not (eth0:1.. etc) .. how can i get round this?05:56
Aprilismacogw:  Will check it out!05:56
macogwAprilis: the link installs them.  if you dont like 'em, dont use them, but they look nice05:56
erstaziBananaMon: see, it is very complex05:56
Aprilismacogw:  I am all for new fonts.  I love fonts.05:56
erstaziBananaMon: and I am lost which way to go, I have tried both ndiswrapper and madwifi05:56
macogwAprilis: http://existentialtype.net/wp-content/uploads/2007/05/liberation-comparison.png05:56
paul---i was thinking potentially some sort of 'virtual interface adaptor' a bit like what you would use for vmware? .. but i dont want to use vmware i want to use the ips the same way i would use it if it was bound on eth0:105:57
Cyclonuterstazi: what about bwcutter?05:57
macogwAprilis: there's side-by-side the Microsoft fonts, Liberation, Bitstream (which is included in Ubuntu)05:57
paul---with the ability to measure traffic, and ratelimit ofcourse :/05:57
_Oz_I like htop05:57
erstaziCyclonut: never saw it, will it work with AR5006EG? this is the issue I am having: http://c-wd.net/ath/05:57
_Oz_thanks for that tip05:57
_Oz_just installed it05:57
AprilisCool!  Nice, simple, text fonts.05:57
AprilisVery nice.05:57
TorikunCheck out compiz on the eee pc, http://rusher.webhop.org/wordpress/?p=8505:57
erstazi_Oz_: I use it sometimes, its more detailed than top05:57
BananaMonerstazi: yeah, erstazi.....I can't find any solutions to this online either.....logically speaking, the problem seems to be of communication between the 2 devices. Have you tried using another version of DD-WRT?05:58
dubbyhey anyone, im having trouble starting amarok, im using ubuntu gutsy and xgl / compiz and when i start amarok it tells me it cannot find kmail05:58
BananaMonerstazi: or here's an idea!05:58
Cyclonuterstazi: dunno, but thats what I use to work with my broadcom-based wireless card.05:58
erstaziBananaMon: I think its the actual chip05:58
macogwdubby: use exaile instead05:58
erstaziBananaMon: and thats what worries me ):05:58
macogwdubby: amarok wants kde stuff, for example kmail.  exaile is the gtk version of amarok.05:58
BananaMonerstazi: use restricted drivers from windows on your linux instead of the open source ones05:58
BananaMonerstazi: could that help?05:58
erstaziBananaMon: have done that05:58
macogwdubby: meaning it doesnt need to load a ton of extra libraries from kde inside your gnome05:58
erstaziBananaMon: thats what ndiswrapper does05:58
r0bwhen is the release date for 8.04 anyone know?05:59
BananaMonerstazi: haha..you've tried everything eh05:59
macogwr0b: april 2405:59
erstaziBananaMon: almost, I am probably missing something05:59
BananaMonr0b: in april I think05:59
macogwBananaMon: thats the obvious answer05:59
erstaziBananaMon: thats why I put together that small html doc with the outputs05:59
r0bmacogw: ty05:59
Geoffrey2ok, since a domain controller is out, would samba with wins support work reasonably well?05:59
r0bBananaMon: ty05:59
dubbyok macogw05:59
erstaziBananaMon: because I might have missed *one* thing05:59
BananaMonerstazi: hmm yeah...I'm really sorry, I can't seem to come up with anything05:59
BananaMonerstazi: yeah I know the feeling05:59
erstaziBananaMon: I appreciate the help05:59
k1roI want to use my second drive as Data but I dont see linux doesnt detect (i think) the drive06:00
erstazimaybe I just need some jack daniels to help, I have to finish this 1.75 litre off anyways06:00
macogwk1ro: what version of ubuntu?06:00
macogwk1ro: and what format is the drive?06:00
BananaMonerstazi: sorry man, It's 1am now here anyway and I have to go to bed, I do really appreciate your help though. If in the coming days I hear anything about the problem or find something related to it, I'll post it on the ubuntuforums, where I'm called Dasani06:00
macogwk1ro: is it NTFS (aka Windows format)?06:00
erstaziBananaMon: same here, its 1am here06:00
KiraWhat does a dns record that starts with the AT sign ("@") do? I have a record that reads "@ A <ip address>" in the zone file of my domain, aside from the usual "* A <ip address>" and "www A <ip address>". Is that somehow wrong? My domain information isn't getting pushed to the DNS nodes.06:00
Cyclonutwell I've got a question - my sound quits working after using certain flash sites (pandora). I have restarted alsa-utils to no avail. If I restart, it works fine, but I dont want to restart. what should I o?06:00

legend2440does anyone know if it makes a difference if use UUID or /dev/hda1 in fstab? Any advantage to UUID?06:02
macogwdubby: thatd also load kde libraries.  it can slow things down a bit if youve not got a lot of memory. i try to stick with gnome stuff for that reason. if you want to use kde stuff, thats fine. it doesnt hurt anything06:02
dubbyobviously it does06:02
macogwlegend2440: a little06:02
dubbybecause that program completely crashes my system06:02

macogwlegend2440: if i want to be able to have different flash drives have different mount points, i'd use UUID because then no matter what order i plug them, that doesn't change06:03

AprilisTotem Movie Player is what pops up when I try playing it.06:04
AprilisShould I install a different player?06:04
macogwlegend2440: when libata was changed a couple releases ago so that IDE drives became /dev/sda instead of /dev/hda like they used to be, anyone who had removed the UUID and put in /dev/hda was in trouble because there was no /dev/hda anymore. it was now called /devsda06:04
macogwAprilis: you could try VLC or MPlayer.  those are both common replacements06:04

Karsythi was wondering if anyone here could help me get my sound working on ubuntu... ive been searching endless amounts of forums and FAQ's, following guides running all kinds of commands. i still cant figure out how to fix it06:56
J-_laptopAmaranth: not sure what you mean.06:56
inacomanope, i don't have a resolv.conf o.O06:56
Karsythive spent easily 5 hours06:56
J-_laptopdarn it06:56
J-_laptopamenado: not sure what you mean06:56
amenadoJ-_laptop-> do you use a nm applet? you can set it there, or on the command line or the interfaces file06:57
inacomamacogw: nope, i don't have a resolv.conf o.O06:57
macogwinacoma: O_O06:58
dubbyhey anyone know how i can tell which version ubuntu I have I just read something about prerelease, and im running gutsy06:58
macogwinacoma: i didnt think that was possible06:58
macogwdubby: gutsy = 7.1006:58
sn00zerwhere do i save a users crontab file? would it be in their home directory?06:58
macogwdubby: im running hardy heron, 8.04 alpha 506:58
cameodemonif youre looking to kill individual process and dont know the name, try ps -el and look for the process there or ps -el | grep string to locate a process id06:59
macogwdubby: final version of hardy will be released april 2406:59
Karsythanyone good on fixing sound issues in ubuntu?06:59
cameodemonyes i do a lot of sound stuff06:59
dubby4.1.3 20070831 (prerelease) (Ubuntu 4.1.2-16ubuntu1)06:59
Karsythcame: ive searched countless amounts of forums / faqs on how to get my sound to work on ubuntu, no dice07:00
macogwdubby: lsb_release -a07:00
cameodemonok whats your sound card07:00
macogwdubby: thatll tell you your ubuntu version07:00
Karsythim using integrated for the moment07:00
Dusti[n]buy a new sound card07:00
Karsythcould that be the problem?07:00
cameodemoni mean, it should work regardless07:01
cameodemonintegrated sound typically sucks but its doable07:01
Karsythif it means anything, im using a very ghetto cheap biostar motherboard07:01
Karsythim not looking for any quality, just sound07:01
cameodemondo you have the make and model of the mb?07:01
inacomamacogw: guessing that's the problem right ;X07:01
cameodemonk i'll do some google fu one sec07:01
macogwinacoma: probably07:01
Karsythalright thanks07:01
inacomasigh! wtf, nfi how. i want it back! :(07:02
oohboolspci should give a name to the sound hardware07:02
macogwinacoma: well you can make a resolv.conf07:02
macogwinacoma: and list nameservers in it07:02
macogwinacoma: system -> admin -> networking has a gui for that07:02
inacomaim running dapper07:02
Karsythim gonna pop in a bagel real quick07:02
Karsythbe back in a sec07:02
macogwinacoma: i know.  that item should still be there in the menu07:03
macogwinacoma: if you were using breezy, id be confused, but i used dapper for a few months...first distro i used for more than a half hour07:03
inacomai dont have a gui? :>07:03
TrustNoOneu dont have a gui? ur hard core07:04
nickrudinacoma: inacoma is this a wired connection that you're losing the resolv.conf for? (just came in)07:04
inacomaYes, its running through a router07:04
cameodemonthats bullshit everyone has a gui just some are more retarded than others at the very least the shell is a type of gui07:04
cameodemonunless your data or cpt. picard or some shit07:04
nickrudinacoma: do you have the network defined in /etc/network/interfaces ?07:05
inacomaI think i ruined it yesterday! Haha, with webmin...07:05
TrustNoOnecameodemon, no, my friend uses text based (like in fail safe mode)07:05
cameodemonso that is still a gui07:05
inacomaYes, everythings defined... i can ping google.com's IP, but not its hostname.07:05
TrustNoOnehow is that a gui? its not graphical in any way07:06
inacomai'm connected to it with putty and winscp now.07:06
cameodemonor is it? hm. what defines a gui im interested. graphical user interface, does this include any system with a monitor?07:06
DevanText is still graphics...07:06
Karsythalright im back07:06
TrustNoOnegui = graphical user interface07:06
cameodemontext isnt really text but instead a pixelated representation of text07:06
TrustNoOnetext based is not a gui07:06
nickrudinacoma: you can add a package called resolvconf , and add a line like    dns-nameservers     to the interface definition, it will automatically set your resolf.conf for you07:06
DevanGenerally speaking, though, GUI refers to a non-terminal interface.07:06
cameodemonmaybe deleuze or derrida would have something to say about the test07:06
cameodemonyeah of course07:06
cameodemonok @Karsyth. are you using a laptop07:07
inacomakk ill try that!07:07
cameodemonok so this might work anyway07:07
TrustNoOnenew 5 gum is awesome07:08
inacomaPackage resolvconf is not available, but is referred to by another package.07:08
inacomaThis may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or07:08
inacomais only available from another source07:08
inacomaE: Package resolvconf has no installation candidate07:08
FloodBot1inacoma: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.07:08
cameodemondownload, chmod +x these scripts and run them, they'll first upgrade your alsa07:08
inacomaArr.. accident07:09
inacomabut yeah, i don't think i can get the package07:09
nickrudinacoma: you need to enable the universe repository, edit /etc/apt/sources.list , and uncomment the lines with universe in them. You might want to add the word multiverse to those lines as well, more software07:09
inacomathat was the start of my problem nickrud ;)07:10
inacomai cannot get these repositories because i can't resolve hostnames07:10
nickrudinacoma: hahahaha.07:10
cameodemonapt-get alsamixer if you can, and make sure nothings muted (check if pressing M on the keyboard has any effect when playing music)...also youve checked, if using gnome, system > prefs > sound and checking if the right devices are selected07:10

smokeydFat32 doesn't support files larger than 4GB. file operations on NTFS for large files take ages in Ubuntu07:14
macogwsmokeyd: ntfs will work fine07:14
Karsythcameo, i had to register to the site real quick to download the files. you said i should chmod +x those scripts, and i have no idea what you mean by that. i just got linux today07:14
macogwinacoma: yes07:14
macogwsmokeyd: oh.  is it xp?07:14
nickrudinacoma: absolutely.07:14
Karsythim going to assume you want me to run that as a command and put the location of the files i downloaded at the end?07:14
macogwsmokeyd: there are xp drivers for ext307:14
bluecakewhere conf file, eth0's ip setting07:14
nickrudinacoma: you can use those I put up temporarily07:14
smokeydmacogw: I just tried to copy a 3GB file to ntfs but it took all night and didn't even complete more than 10%07:14
smokeydmacogw: I found the ext2 IFS driver07:15
TrustNoOnesmokeyd, i copy files to NTFS drive all the time with no problem, so it could be network issue maybe?07:15
macogwsmokeyd: ext2 and ext3 are compatible. itll work fine.07:15
smokeydbut the problem there is file consistency in case of clean unmounts (IE windows XP crashes)07:15
inacomaOk, and i should be able to do that through the router settings - right? i'm pretty sure it has nameservers in it - they would work? And how is the resolv.conf file set out? is it just "nameserver one.ip.here.yo"07:15
macogwsmokeyd: thats a problem on ntfs too....07:15
nickrudinacoma: the problem with manually changing /etc/resolv.conf as a permanent solution is some inet utils try to set it themselves07:15

nickrudgr1ff1n: I haven't compiled awn, and have no intention ;) I like packages, and have only compiled libgpod since I have a new nano07:59
macogwKarsyth: that looks right... maybe do "sudo -s" first and then just "./alsa_1.sh"08:00
Oi2Lifeokay I works now, heh. I did mistype it08:00
Oi2LifeSorry for that08:00
macogwKarsyth: the script might be assuming you're running as actual root08:00
jamil_11020429i have added medibuntu repo : of no use though08:00

macogwKarsyth: then i guess it's working08:06
Karsythnow reboot your machine, and run alsa_208:06
Karsythmaybe it thinks i dont have permissions but it did it anyways?08:06
macogwKarsyth: did you sudo -s first?08:06
BuSeferin which virtual machine for windows does ubuntu run best?08:07
macogwKarsyth: thatd make it a root shell08:07
Karsythmacogw: i think so08:07
Karsythno i didnt, should i redo it like that?08:07
macogwBuSefer: from what i read, virtualbox is the fastest vm for graphics08:07
macogwKarsyth: well if it worked i guess not08:08
iceswordBuSefer, vmware workstation08:08
BuSefermacogw: what do you mean "for graphics"?08:08
aninhumerHmm, if that isn't possible, is there an easy way to swap round a symlink and its target file?08:08
Karsythmacocgw: like i said, in the beginning it said there were permission errors but it went through anyways08:08
macogwBuSefer: most graphically responsive...like redrawing the screen, it won the benchmarks, so 3D stuff would work well in there as compared to vmware or qemu08:08
Oi2Lifewhen would you use the -i param with sudo?08:08
Karsythmacogw: oh, that did it, its running without errors now08:09
macogwOi2Life: if you wanted it to be like su -08:09
macogwOi2Life: it switches to root's environment08:09
BuSefermacogw: what about 2D? I mean usual usage without 3D, I am not going to run games, but I want responsive interface08:09
macogwOi2Life:  i think its annoying because wherever i've cd'd gets undone and my vimrc and bashrc are gone...but since there are some apps which require root's env. to run because they are in /sbin...08:10
macogwBuSefer: i dont know exactly.  the benchmarks were done with drawing squares and circles and things08:10
macogwBuSefer: so i guess 2D was fastest too08:10
macogwBuSefer: qemu's still faster for computational things08:10
Oi2Lifeit says *Stating Gnose Display Manager.. then quits08:11
BuSeferok. thank you. will use virtubox08:11
Oi2Lifefor thhmmm08:11

nickthorleyhi all - does ubuntu have frequent updates - I am only asking as I downloaded the 7.10 media a while ago and built a laptop at the weekend but the number of updates that downloaded were very small - I used to use fedora and I would have had probably 100 updates - I understand not many packages were on at the start but still didnt seem many08:22
prince_jammysKarsyth: cd changes directory08:23
shockorder -
Parsec300nickthorley: yes, there are updates very frequently.08:23
