Lars_Gneosix: newer?00:06
audriusStarnestommy,  oh thananks00:06
soundray!highno | Lars_G00:06
ubotuLars_G: A higher version number does not mean that it's better. Especially with packages such as the linux kernel. The packages in the Ubuntu repositories are stable and will work fine. You should have a better reason than "newer" when considering compiling from source or using 3rd party repos.00:06
neosixLars_G: aha00:06
audriusJack_Sparrow,  any ideas ?00:06
brueniga higher version does mean it is better00:06

grnmtnonly use kill -9 if a regular killall fails00:13
Lars_GInteresting.... insmod works, only modprobe fails00:13
grnmtnto find a process name, you can use top00:13
JonZenorFaust-C: Uhm, it didn't work, says mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //,00:13
danand_Karsyth - use the command pidof process_name00:13
grnmtnit will list the processes using the most resources at the top of the list00:13
Bryan_SierraI need a way to control the PCM volume control via the keyboard media keys.00:13
Faust-CJonZenor, hmm sec im gonna google a tad more00:13
Karsythwhenever i run that command it just goes to a new line00:14
JonZenori'm trying too00:14
Lars_GOk stuff works with insmod, I wonder if it'll work at reboot. sigh00:14
danand_Karsyth - or use ps -A | grep process_name00:14
JonZenorI need to get ready for work soon00:15
prince_jammysi didn't know about pidof, seems to work like pgrep00:15

jonathan_How can I find out where something went when I download it from synaptic?00:15
danand_prince_jammys - pidof is great... if you know the exact name of the process :) ... firefox ... firefox-bin ...00:16
Lars_GWell back in X now let's see if it fixes the failure.00:16
grnmtnhas anyone had problems with Intel GMA 950 drivers? I just moved a new computer, and everything looks really fuzzy - I can't figure out how to fix it00:16
soundrayjonathan_: package files go to /var/cache/apt/archives00:16
prince_jammysdanand_: i normally do that with pgrep00:16
jonathan_soundray, thank you!00:16
chetnickhow do you add startup programs trough shell ?00:16
soundrayjonathan_: to get a list of files in a package, 'dpkg -L packagename'00:16
Lars_Git did. or so it seems00:16
* danand_ is gonna check out pgrep00:16
Karsyt1i keep lagging out, sorry. how do i find the process list again? im kind of confused. whenever i enter the commands oyu tell me it goes to a blank line00:17
soundrayKarsyt1: that usually means it has worked00:17
Dr_willis_Karsyt1,  the commands, top, or ps, are normally used00:17
Karsyt1alright ive got the list00:17
danand_prince_jammys - pgrep looks pretty cool too :)00:18
prince_jammysdanand_: yeah00:18
Karsyt1im still not seeing the name on the list00:18
Karsyt1i cant figure out which one it is. im trying to run steam install00:18
grnmtnno one here with GMA 950 problems?00:18
Dr_willis_Karsyt1,  ps ax | grep steam00:19
gigamonkeyIs there an easy way to clone my boot drive unto a USB thumb drive such that I could boot from it in a pinch?00:19
grnmtnKarsyt1 - what process are you trying to kill?00:19
Karsyt1a steam install00:19
komputesis there a way to quickly switch between window managers or does one HAVE to log out and back in?00:19
danand_gigamonkey - look into the dd command00:19
Karsyt1im running it trhough wine00:19
prince_jammysdanand_: they seem similar.  pgrep has a few more options, though i normally don't use those00:19
soundraykomputes: some wms have a --replace command line option00:19
Dr_willis_komputes,  many support a 'whatever --replace' option, or depending on how it got launched, you can kill it from a terminal, and run another.00:20
Dr_willis_komputes,  ive seen some that come with menu items to launch alternative window managers.. depends on your needs.00:20
danand_prince_jammys - i usually use pidof in scripts - it's useful to list pid's of all running apps with the name you supply.00:21
komputesdo you know how to do it with xfce, theres no xfce command, like 1800:21
prince_jammysdanand_: i'm seeing one difference: pidof requires the exact name, whereas pgrep works like grep00:22
Dr_willis_komputes,  do what exactly with xfce?00:22
soundraykomputes: I don't think you can switch to xfce without logging out, since it's a whole environment00:22
JonZenorI can't figure out what's wrong! :( everything I look at says smbfs is the correct type, and I don't know what else would be wrong in that line00:22
gigamonkeydanand_: so will something like dd if=/ of=/media/disk/ Just Work?00:22
Lars_GNo ideas why I can insmod the module but not modprobe it?00:22
prince_jammysdanand_: so pidof is probably safer, in scripts, unless you specify to match only the exact string00:22
komputesoh did i say window manager or desktop manager...my bad00:22
danand_prince_jammys - that is the difference ... pidof is great _if_ you know the _exact_ process name00:23
komputesbut good to know i can do twm --replace00:23
Dr_willis_the xfce startup scripts - launch several of the xfce 'parts'00:23
Dr_willis_Im not sure twm supports --replace :)00:23
grnmtnthe problem with tools like pgrep is they aren't universal across all *nix operating systems, unlike ps and grep00:23
komputesyeah,i need to log out for that00:23
danand_prince_jammys - yeah, safer for someone like me at least :)00:23
grnmtnif you're talking about scripting00:23
audriusJack_Sparrow, geforce 8600 gts00:23

Dr_willis_Mezriss,  your users need to be in the fuse group, then they can mount/unmount the iso image files.00:27
soundrayrhineheart_m: if you need a root shell for something, you can always do 'sudo -i'00:27
rhineheart_mThanks for your inputs guys... how about to a server without GUI?00:27

=== ubuntuisloved is now known as OFStime
danand_gigamonkey - the dd command will allow you to clone a disk or partition _exactly_ - hence any refs to the disk or partition name will be preserved. use of dd may or may not _just_ work ... you may need to edit things like fstab etc for that to work00:28

ypSamiHey all. Since I'm forced to install imagemagick 6.3.x via source, what is the best way to install via source that ensures a clean uninstall?00:35
soundray!checkinstall | ypSami00:36
ubotuypSami: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!00:36

jonathan_How would I get to "/var/cache/apt/archives?"00:38

Jimdbdanhs:  top run in a terminal doesn't show apache?00:41
Maimstericesword I just can't explain why my Ubuntu 7.10 is stopping at 10Kbps.00:41

hischildsoundray, hmm ... i've gotta remember that one then ... i've got a lot to install from source and it's a pain to uninstall something00:42
FlannelJimdb: likely that apache isn't a top process00:42
danhsand system monitor does when I change view to something other than my process00:42

danhstop doesn't show apache00:42
Jimdbdanhs:  you can stretch the window and i'll show more than 3300:42
EpicLegionrrplay: Well, first off, I should tell you I'm a long time Windows user00:42
danhsJimdb: I can stretch top?00:42
Starnestommyapache is usually apache2 in ps aux00:42
Maimstericesword What does the download tools do?00:42
EpicLegionrrpaly: So I'm kinda new to this stuff00:42
EpicLegionrrplay: Anyway, I have a NVIDIA 8500 GT GeForce00:43
rrplayEpiclegion:: what chipset do you have00:43
danhsyea definitely not in the top 33 or whatever the number is00:43
danhsit is in system monitor tho'00:43

danhsis there a way to see the path to the executable tho?00:43
EpicLegionrrplay: And I've installed the latest linux driver for my card00:43
EpicLegionAnd now00:43
Jimdbdid I ask the wrong question when I asked about HP laptop sound issues?00:43
EpicLegionrrplay: When I try to enable the Restricted driver00:43
EpicLegionrrplay: And reboot00:43
jms1989How can one setup apache2 to stream media instead of downloading and then playing?00:44
EpicLegionrrplay: I go into low-graphics mode00:44
EpicLegionrrplay: And have to select my stuff00:44
Maimstericesword Okay that makes sense, however why is the other machines on the same network out performing mine without extra software? Just strange.00:44
EpicLegionrrplay: And the driver still isn't enabled00:44
danhsahhhh command line.....that is pretty sweet00:44
listeperDoes anyone know if and when eclipse 3.3.x is gonna be included in the package manager?00:44
rrplayEpicLegion: look here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=67418500:44
soundrayJimdb: probably not, but you may have to repeat or rephrase a couple of times until someone jumps on it00:44
Maimstericesword I am thinking about taking this machine to another location to test another broadband account.00:45
soundray!sound > Jimdb, meantime, have you seen this? (private message)00:45
PriceChildlisteper: ubuntu is frozen on release. Only security and critical bug fixes are added.00:45

rrplayEpicLegion  nvidia-xconfig -A | less read and select option for your card00:45

ryanzecis there a good UML software like visio or smartdraw for ubuntu?00:45
iceswordMaimster, what you mean by out performing mine without00:45

audriuswhat graphical iterface u are using kde or gnome?00:46
Maimstericesword I have 6 machines on this cable modem. They download from that super fast site at like 900 - 1.5Mbps.00:46
Jimdbsoundray:  that's why i didn't repeat it...but...to be honest, my question stated I'd torn through the threads on the support forums and many ppl have no resolution to their hp laptop sound issues.00:46
ryanzecaudrius, was that for me?00:46
iceswordoh, i see00:46
Maimstericesword For some strange reason this newly configure ubuntu 7.10 just can't go fastst than like 30kbps.00:46
listeperThansk PriceChild.00:46
danhsdanand_: that htop.....that is friggin sweet00:46
boxafellahi everyone00:47
Maimstericesword That was why I wanted someone else to download to see what they get for speed.00:47
soundrayJimdb: I see. Have you looked for installation reports on tuxmobil.org ?00:47
iceswordthis is just weird00:47
TrichomeKidOkay, so I was messing with the inside of my machjine (Not that relevant), but when I started up Ubuntu.. the icons on the one taskbar were in the middle.  The Network Connection icon is now in the middle I can't move it.  Anyone know why?00:47
Maimstericesword Exactly.00:47
rrplayEpicLegion: so what is the problem that you are having?? after reading in the forums ?00:47
danand_danhs - you'll never use top again ... :) alias top='htop'00:47
Maimstericesword I have been working with it for 5 days now.00:47
PriceChildTrichomeKid: right click and uncheck lock00:47
danhsdanand_: good call00:47
soundrayTrichomeKid: you must have switched resolutions at some point00:47

boxafellacan anyone help me?00:48
jonathan_somehow I accidentally got rid of my desktop, and I can't remember how to put it back on. Could someone help?00:48
jonathan_All I have is my compiz cube picture00:48
EpicLegionrrplay: Okay, the problem is that I enable the restricted drivers for my vid card. On reboot, I'm sent into low-graphics mode. I select my monitor and vid card drivers, and when I get into the GUI, the restricted drivers still aren't enabled00:48
TrichomeKidsoundray:  The resolution is the same.  But I will try switching to a different one.00:48
Maimstericesword The sad part is that I used the Ubuntu Terminal Server Client to do the downloads on the other boxes and they still out performed mine.00:48
soundrayTrichomeKid: the network "icon" is in the Notification Area applet. Right-click the faint dots to the left of the icon00:49
boxafella I've done a lot of research, and found drivers myself.. i've even attempted compiling them, but i haven't had any luck in getting my webcam to work00:49
Jimdbsoundray:  I think sound in linux on laptops has a serious need to be fixed.  I have probably 5 solid laptops here and all exhibit some sound related issues. I'm not sure if you are interested in knowing how I got around my issues.00:49
jonathan_Anyone know the problem?00:49
danand_emma - uh... did u just pm me?00:49
rrplayEpicLegion: did you try those command at the console   nvidia-settings   nvidia-xconfig -A | less00:49
soundrayJimdb: don't let my nickname mislead you -- it dates back to a time when I did ultrasound research00:49
EpicLegionrrplay: Which console?00:50
boxafella I've done a lot of research, and found drivers myself.. i've even attempted compiling them, but i haven't had any luck in getting my webcam to work00:50
iceswordMaimster, i think it is networking issue,not sure,what if you run ifconfig00:50
TrichomeKidsoundray:  Now that you mention it, I can't find those faint dots anymore...00:50
soundrayTrichomeKid: they may be covered up by another applet.00:50
boxafellaanyone at all?00:50
rrplayEpicLegion: the terminal00:50
Maimstericesword I thought about that too. So I did a download internally. My Ubuntu box killed the others by about 2MBps!!00:50
EpicLegionrrplay: No, I haven't00:50
EpicLegionrrplay: Do I need to stop my gdm?00:51

Mezrisshow should I add user to a group? opened group properties, marked users which I wanted to add, pressed ok. then I've decided to check it and opened group properties again, but none of the users were marked00:51

Scuniziboxafella, what kind of webcam?00:51
Jimdbsoundray:  i am wondering if there's a need to break out this support area into smaller more specialized areas.  I know there are some such as #samba, etc. but there probably should be some for laptops and then broken down by issue:  sound, video, wireless, modems, etc.00:51
Maimstericesword I grabbed the same file from an internal FTP. I got about 8.5Mbps00:51
FlannelJimdb: #ubuntu-offtopic for that discussion, and let me save you the time: not really, it wouldn't ever work.00:51

Maimstericesword Definately.  My Ubuntu 6.10 is great. Just weird is all. I can not figure this out.00:52
fluohow can one output audio to /dev/audio?00:52
LjLJimdb, the sound question is not offtopic. the splitting-the-channel thing is.00:53
FlannelJimdb: the sound question is good here.  The channel scheme discussion is offtopic, but we'll all be happy to discuss it there.00:53
soundrayfluo: 'cat file >/dev/audio'00:53

EpicLegionrrplay: Okay, on the settings command, I got a bunch of "Not Found"00:54

JorophoseSo I'm trying to compile Geany on my 6.06 machine and following Psychocats guide am going to use "sudo checkinstall -D" instead of "sudo make install". But does this also do the equivelent of "make clean"?01:00
soundrayfaileas: System-Preferences-Universal Access01:00
FlannelJorophose: checkinstall creates a deb file that you install, to remove the installed package, you use package management01:00
Maimstericesword Actually hitting 12 KB/sec01:00
soundrayJorophose: no, you should probably do 'make clean' before the checkinstall step01:01
Jorophosealright, thanks. What happens if I've missed it though?01:01
Jorophoselike ran "make clean" afterwards?01:01
m0u5eanyone know hot to break symbolic links on a directory without actually deleting that actual directory?01:01
Jorophoseor does deleting the directory I was working in clear everything?01:01
FlannelJorophose: make clean won't really do anything except clean up your temporary made files, checkinstall may do it automatically anyway, I dont know.01:02
iceswordMaimster, i am not sure how your internal network is built,but i think it is the bandwith limit01:02

soundray!gksu | rrplay01:02

prettyrickyCan you add OS X to a windows system. I currently have Xp and Ubuntu?01:03
FlannelJorophose: depends on the makefile.  Usually it's all made in . though, or a subdirectory of .01:03
Flannelprettyricky: Yes.  Assuming you have a mac and the installation media.01:03
Jorophose.? As in current? If it is, then I guess there shouldn't be a problem because I deleted the directory after =/01:03

Maimstericesword I bet it is the Intel DG31PR board.01:15
Flannel!ipod | mike01:15
ubotumike: For information on how to sync and add tracks to your iPod, see the guide at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IPodHowto - See !RockBox for information on liberating your iPod01:15
danand_asker - if you have messages from apt saying that packages are no longer required then use apt-get autoremove ... to search for packages etc that are no longer required ... use deborphan01:16
Maimstericesword Probably that is what's doing it.01:16
joesoundguyScunizi..Just tried a commercialy purchased Music CD and the same thing happens01:16
rrplayugaucho: gksudo nvidia-settings01:16
Maimstericesword Time to find another NIC around here to try it out.01:16
iceswordMaimster, so you mean you lack network card drivers01:16
Scunizijoesoundguy, do the lights light on the front of the cd player like it's trying to do something?01:16
Jorge_Is there an Age of Empires equivalent for Linux that anyone knows of?01:16
EleafDoes anybody know of a good time tracking program?  I forgot the name, you type what you are doing and the program records how long you do it.01:16
Maimstericesword If so how am I connected to freenode?01:16
Maimstericesword Using the box now.01:17
EleafI have the program installed, I can't figure out what it is though, I've been searching for 10 minutes01:17
joesoundguyScunizi Yes and disk mounter says the disk is mounted01:17
amenadoEleaf-> time01:17
Eleafamenado, that's to track programs01:17
askerdanand_: thank you. is deborphan a command?01:17
EleafI want to track my activities, like "writing on blog" or "doing work" amenado01:17
ubotuMythTV is a TV framework for Linux - Instructions for using with Ubuntu at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MythTV01:17
Maimster<--- Needs more RUM.01:17
iceswordMaimster, no,it can use restricted drivers,then may stop its function01:17
EleafThere is a program that tracks time, but it won't show up in any searches01:17
joesoundguyScunizi  I think I have a Nautilus problem.  the hardware seems to work01:17
rhineheart_mFlannel: thanks...but my machine doesn't have GUI.. it's a server01:18
manic12_what is the correct way to launch the xserver, if i do sudo xstart it gives me a security warning, if i just do it as a normal user, some apps don't work01:18
Maimstericesword I can check to see if there are any restricted drivers then.. hold checking now.01:18
Scunizijoesoundguy, weird.. I'm afraid I'm out of ideas.. Nautilus might but that won't effect the terminal way of browsing.01:18
EleafI really loath how difficult it is to find something that was so easy to find before01:18
danand_asker - deborphan is  a package you can install - type sudo apt-get install deborphan in a terminal01:18
blood1if my laptop froze and i had to hard-reset, would there be a log to tell me what went wrong. has happened a few times.01:18
xTheGoat121xMy top panel freezes every time I start my computer.01:18
Eleafamenado, I found the program, it's called gtimelog!01:18
Fuze_where do i find out what version of ubuntu im running??01:18
Maimstericesword The only restricted driver that Ubuntu sees are the nVidia drivers and they are cool.01:19
Flannelrhineheart_m: recovery console isn't a GUI.  It's a GRUB option.  It works, trust me.  Boots to run level 101:19
amenadoEleaf-> i know you can.. :P01:19
FlannelFuze_: lsb_release -a01:19
joesoundguyScunizi Perhaps itś an fstab or kernel issue?01:19
Fuze_k  :)01:19
Eleafamenado, indeed, I found it01:19
EleafI just typed in commands, still couldn't find the program in search ;)01:19

Shrugzi have flannel i havent seen a list of all installed packages01:26
askerdanand_: how does deborphan work?01:26

joesoundguyScunizi  Should I just try to edit the fstab from hdc to scd1?01:27
Scunizijoesoundguy, the operative part of that last part is the "s". Maybe changing yours to /dev/sdc0 will make a diff.01:27

Scunizijoesoundguy, you might consider reseating the ide cable on the cdrom..unplug it then plug it back in. Make sure the machine is off ofcourse..03:24
oldmonkswillhi, i got something strange going on, compiz is enabled, everything is working, except the animations even though they are enabled?03:24

SkinnYPuppYI haven't done a radeon , someone else perhaps03:24
nickruda1fa: from debian to ubuntu? It'll have some breakage, but I guess you could take the time to manually fix it.  Probably much faster to just install it in a vm or another partition03:24

a1fai dont have a cdrom03:24
musashidft sorry. no it helped. didn't mean it to come off bad.03:24
Scunizioldmonkswill, did you install compiz configuration settings manager?03:24
gamegamei've researched it under the forums, but the answers are all for it being a wireless card, which, to the best of my knowledge is not correct at all.03:24
joesoundguyScunizi since the discs mount and they work on the windblows partition Im sure everything is mechanically ok03:24

catmistakethis is whack... apt-get won't let me install while firefox is downloading... says... unable to unlock the administration directory04:42
Dracodonspaulding: netbeans seems best for ruby tab completion04:42
chequersponingru: you mean after I install with the monitor plugged into the onboard I can then reboot with it plugged into the card?04:42
chequerscatmistake: that means another apt-get is running, it's not about firefox04:42
poningrucatmistake: its probably just downloading in the background04:42

poningrusorry describe the trouble again then04:45
bod_murlidhar, theres a tuto on ubuntu forums, in the tutorial of the week section04:45
chequersponingru: what happens is that the bios boots up and shows the video on the GPU VGA output, but ubuntu outputs video to the onboard VGA output only04:45
jribcinvoke: it isn't closed unless you closed it04:45
DracovALIEN: i.e. not a new system. but trying to start firefox or such like that takes forever (though I hear FF is a memory pig anyway)04:45
murlidharthanks bod_04:45
catmistakethar she goes...04:45
donspauldingDraco: not used Komodo for Ruby (don't a lot of folks use RadRails?), PHP/Python/Perl was what Komodo was developed for, although it also does good with static languages like HTML/JS/CSS04:45
dsmith_I can use ff fine04:45
vALIENDraco: whats FF?04:45
poningruchequers: hmm that is weird... because that is controlled by the bios04:45
poningrunot the OS04:46
vALIENoh feisty fawn04:46
dsmith_actually firefox uses Fx04:46
DracovALIEN: firefox, used that because I mentioned it in the same sentence04:46
poningruchequers: but it works under windows?04:46
StarnestommyFF usually frfers to firefox04:46
vALIENyeah :P04:46
chequersponingru: the only option in the BIOS relates to the first device initialised (eg, for POST output), and that's set to PCIEx (instead of PCI, which is the onboard)04:46
bod_murlidhar, no prob ;~)04:46
chequersponingru: yes04:46
cinvokeI don't think I have a firewall, and I didn't close port 22. I don't think04:46
dsmith_vALIEN: download the iso's and try them out04:46

poningrudo you have ssh running?04:47
vALIENthanks bod04:47
jribcinvoke: sudo iptables -L   will list your iptables rules04:47
chequersponingru: no problem, talking to you at least gave me an idea of what to try ;)04:47
prince_jammysvALIEN: you can install kubuntu-desktop and not lose gnome. then you can uninstall it if you don't like it04:47
vALIENI just saw that there is 1200 users in this channel and wanted some opinion04:48
bod_vALIEN, no probs ;~)04:48
Dracodonspaulding: I've a data structures prof that says we should use stuff like that, and who's never seen C-style inheritance04:48
donspauldingvALIEN: be forewarned, the uninstall of kubuntu-desktop leaves much to be desired04:48
bod_vALIEN, sorry, were tech support #ubuntu-offtopic might help you04:48
vALIENSo running KDE environment from sessions is NOT KDE?04:48

KalandrosI have a question for anyone willing to answer: Linux 32-bit v. Linux 64-bit?04:48
Dracodonspaulding: I.e. "how the hell can you expect to access the variable inside just by casting"04:49
bod_Kalandros, depends if you have a 64 bit machine really04:49
KalandrosI do.04:49
fausto_vazhey guys, you know some channel where i can get information about c language?04:49
KalandrosI have the newest Intel.04:49

Cpudan80fausto_vaz: ##C04:49
poningruyou might not want 64bit04:49
prince_jammysvALIEN: if you have kubuntu installed, then KDE appears in your session menu and you would be running KDE04:49
fausto_vazthanks man04:49
cinvokewhat am I looking for in the iptables rules?04:49
poningrucinvoke: first answer that question why do you want that port open?04:49
poningrudo you have ssh installed?04:50
Kalandrosponingru: Well, I am just wondering if I want to use it to make use of my RAM.04:50
bod_Kalandros, do you have more then 2 gig of ram,. because i believe 32bit can only handle 2 gig max04:50
Dracofausto_vaz: yeah. if you need examples of data structures and such ruby (the C code behind it) is really cool04:50
Cpudan80I wouldn't advise installing kubuntu-desktop04:50
ka24 gig04:50
poningrubod_: not it can handle 4 gig04:50
Cpudan80The uninstall doesnt work right04:50
bod_Cpudan80, why?04:50
cinvokeI am setting up ssl connection with a web server that is using ssl to transmit a file04:50
Cpudan80The uninstall fails04:50
Kalandrosbod_:  It's reading 3.2 Gigs of RAM.04:50
poningrueven then it can use more using extension04:50
murlidharbod_: i can't find the topic in the tutorial of the week section.04:50

DownsayI need some pretty big help...I'm a complete newb05:00
darkcrabof course, ubuntu is better now than it has ever been.05:00
DownsayI need to repartition my hdd05:00
dclarkeokay .. based on what I see thus far .. debian is ubunto is debian and Solaris is entirely something else05:00
Dracoastheo: ubuntu has quirks like sudo refusing to work based on the time of day - LITERALLY05:00
DownsayI downloaded the gparted livecd05:00
Downsayand it won't load when I reboot comp05:01
garrwoodI have hardy (64b) upgrd from 7.10 (64b) Nautilus will not load. I get an error that libbeagle is missing. i see it has been replaced with libbeagle1 but Nautilus is still asking for it. Pls help!05:01
Downsayeven after changing the bios settings05:01

Kalandrosbod_: The 64-bit can accept up to 2 exabytes, or 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 bytes. xDDDDDD05:01
darkcrabsolaris is mostly for people who want to run a server or workstation.05:01
Odd-rationaleDownsay: Did you try reburning?05:01
Dracoastheo: it's still easy to fix because Ubuntu has the recovery thing05:01
Downsayyes, I've reburned 3x05:01
dthackerDownsay: can you use gparted from the Ubuntu Live CD?05:01
prince_jammysDownsay: put your whole question in one line, it's easier for everyone05:01
Downsayno, I can't load from live cd05:01
keithclarkdthacker, nothing in your link either that works.05:01
dthackerDownsay: try another CD-Rom05:01
Kaneda15so.. who would be able to tell me how i would go about installing the new nvidia vid card drivers? (not the one that is in the restricted drives manager on installation)05:01
bod_Kalandros, yer, i got one of those for christmas ;~)05:02
astheoDraco: all distros have its own quirks. but unbutu has the least..05:02
prince_jammysDownsay: you've been able to boot other CDs, right? such as the ubuntu live CD05:02
dclarkedarkcrab: solaris is mostly for people who want to run a server or workstation ?? isn't that .. everybody ?05:02
DownsayI need to be able to repartition my HDD, I've tried 3 cd-roms, it will not read from a cd (not sure if this is because I already dual boot in windows and ubuntu)05:02
Motorsport3garrwood: I think you should ask in #ubuntu+105:02
Kalandrosbod_: What? Makes no sense...05:02
Downsayprince_jammys, no, I cannot05:02
darkcrabI have two computers, both for school.05:02
darkcrabdont really need a workstation.05:02
dthackerkeithclark: sorry to hear that.  You'll have to wait for more activity in #winehq, post to the forums, or ask the question on launchpad.05:02
garrwoodnew to the irc thing, how do i get there?05:02
bod_Kalandros, i got a 2 exabyte ram stick for xmas last year,.,. ur way behind -- lol05:03
prince_jammysDownsay: have you looked at your bios settings to make sure you have it set to "boot from cd" ?05:03
keithclarkdthacker.....no worries, I still have one XP machine left05:03
Downsayprince_jammys, I've already adjusted bios settings to make for priority to read cd, it won't do it still, it skips and goes straight to which operating system would I like to start, ubuntu or windows05:03
Motorsport3garwood: type /join #ubuntu+105:03
prince_jammysDownsay: i see05:03
Kalandrosbod_: u.u We'd be lucky if they made any HDD, even in an array, close to an Exabyte.05:03
dclarkethis is too noisey .. oh well .. thanks and buh bye05:03
jescishello, I'm trying to run bed. A binary editor for linux, and I get this error: "error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"05:03
Downsayprince_jammys, my linux is so full I cannot download any upgrades and I'm not sure how to make any additional room05:03
dthackerDownsay: do you have a different CD-ROM you can put in the machine?  If so, I would try that. In my experience, LiveCD's that won't load are almost always hardware.05:04
darkcrabi just put ubuntu on my laptop because I got tired of windows, i was spending more time being annoyed by it than actually doing my work..05:04
Downsaydthacker, no I do not05:04
bod_Kalandros, id be lucky if i can afford a terabyte drive let alone an exabyte ram stick05:04
prince_jammysDownsay: just to clarify, you say you can't boot from ANY kind of live CD, or only from gparted?05:04
Downsayprince_jammys, I cannot boot from any type of cd05:04
AntiUSAthanks prince jammys!05:04
Chipsa964sorry to bother you all again, but i still cant get my internal mic to work after trying some suggestions...anyone have any ideas??05:04
prince_jammysAntiUSA: congratulations05:04
Grifte1Hi, I'm having intermittent working audio issues05:04
dthackerjescis: you will need to find the package that provides that library and install it.05:04
darkcrabtons of people seem to be having audio issues with 7.1005:05
Kalandrosbod_: Dude...I'd want an Exabyte HDD.05:05
Odd-rationaledarkcrab: And after you install ubuntu, you probably spend more time tweaking it... :)05:05
prince_jammysDownsay: strange05:05
darkcrablol odd05:05
Kalandrosbod_: I'd never ever need a new HDD again. xDDDDDDDD05:05
Downsayprince_jammys, is there any way I can make another 600mb of room on linux OS so I can upgrade to 7.10?05:05
Grifte1darkcrab:  yeah, that's the version I'm running05:05
keithclarkdthacker, this appears to be one of those programs that just does not work, unless you are on a dual boot machine05:05
darkcrabna, i am comfortable enough with the command line at this point that it really doesnt bother me anymore.05:05
iceswordDownsay, uninstall some packages05:06
darkcrabmy other computer is a mac.lol05:06
dthackerkeithclark: rats! I love Sim City.05:06
Downsayprince_jammys, I'm really new to linux and I have no idea how to repartition...I lost my HD space when I downloaded and installed Virtual Box...after I tried to install Windows OS on my virtual box I ran out of room05:06
prince_jammysDownsay: the thing is i would just say to use the gparted live CD :)  which you can't do05:06
bod_Kalandros, yer, but hey said that when 8mb drives were comin out, now people fill 500igs05:06
Kalandrosbod_: Exabyte = 1073741824 gigabytes = 1048576 terabytes = 1024 petabytes...05:06
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about mac - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi05:06
keithclarkdthacker, me too.  That makes Age of Empires, Empire Earth and now Sim City 405:07
bod_Kalandros, yer ok, anyone can use the google converter05:07
darkcrablol ubotu05:07
Downsayprince_jammys, do you have any idea how to uninstall the virtual box and all the HDD space the windows OS took up on it?05:07
prince_jammysDownsay: well, with gparted you would see that repartioning can be fairly simple. the thing is to get it so that can boot that cd05:07
Kalandrosbod_: Yeah, well. We are a long, long, long, long, long, long ways off from Petabytes, let alone Exabytes.05:07
jescisI can't find it in synaptic :(05:07
Grifte1is there no way for me to troubleshoot the audio problems on gutsy?05:07
darkcrabynow keith, if you can, your better off just doing a duel boot.05:07
Downsayprince_jammys, I'm about ready to give up and start fresh and delete ubuntu all together05:07
Kaneda15mm the 64-bit version of ubuntu 7.10 seems rather unstable, not sure if it's just me or what Oo05:07
Odd-rationaleDownsay: sudo apt-get remove virtualbox and delete the ~/.VitualBox dir.05:07
bod_Kalandros, nah, 25 years people wil be sayin " i think il download the entire internet to my pendrive today"05:08
keithclarkdarkcrab, no, I have one machine that way and I don't want anymore like it........05:08
Motorsport3My 64bit install is pretty stable05:08
darkcrabi havent seen a solution yet, but best thing is to search for your audio card on the forums Griftel05:08
DownsayOdd-rationale, do you think you could help me with the deleting of the ~/.VirtualBox dir.?05:08
* Kaneda15 installed last night and has crashed 5 times so far today05:08
prince_jammysDownsay: no, i don't know how to install virtual box. the thing i find disconcerting is the inability to boot from cd. i'm going to look around on the internet05:08
darkcrabk keith05:08
Odd-rationaleDownsay: Sure. It is trivial05:08
jescisubotu libstdc++.so.505:08
keithclarkdarcrab, I understand though!05:08
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about libstdc++.so.5 - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi05:08
prince_jammysDownsay: *uninstall i meant05:08
darkcrabi understand your point of view too keith05:08
Kalandrosbod_: Well, they are working of in Cairo, Egypt on a disc that utilizes holograms and it's supposed to be able to store the entire internet. For businessmen who travel on planes and can't get online, and things like that. You'll be able to check any static data. =]05:09
Odd-rationaleDownsay: Do you want to remove the whole folder or just the .vdi ?05:09
DownsayI want to remove everything associated with it05:09
jescisubotu c++ libraries05:09
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about c++ libraries - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi05:09
dthackerjescis: do you have libstdc installed?05:09
DownsayIs there any way for me to defrag in linux?05:09
Odd-rationaleDownsay: rm ~/.VirtualBox05:09
Odd-rationale!defrag | Downsay05:10
ubotuDownsay: The default Ubuntu filesystem (ext3) is engineered to avoid fragmentation issues in most cases, see http://linkpot.net/behead/ for a simple example on how it achieves this. A package "defrag" is available in !Universe, however its use is not safe, and is generally not needed.05:10
bod_Kalandros, pointless,.,. unless they have a 100gig download speed and noone else in the world using any bandwidth05:10
keithclarkdarkcrab, I am just stubborn enough to keep looking casually though.05:10
darkcrabit should be able to be done05:10
ubotuI am ubotu, all-knowing infobot. You can browse my brain at http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi - Usage info: http://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBots05:10

keithclarkdarkcrab, I've googled to death....nothing works05:10
Downsaysomehow I don't believe that defrag...or something is going screwy with my system even more than I can imagine05:10
DownsayI installed virtual box and on virtual box I installed WindowsXP while installing XP it ran out of space and said it would resume when I was able to free more space05:11
DownsayI have 0 space to free05:11
Odd-rationaleDownsay: Fragmentation is only an issue if your partition is over %90 full05:11
Kalandrosbod_: Who knows, Intel just released the Core 2 Quad with the 65 nm technology and they already said by the end of the year, they are going to release the new 45 nm processor. Who knows, probably by the time that disc comes out, we'll be downloading and measuring it by gigabytes per second.05:11
Grifte1darkcrab: sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.  sometimes it gives me an error message when I boot up the machine. something about GNOME have problems. I've been trying to get it to appear again so I could copy the error message but as it seems to appear at random I haven't been able to do it yet.05:11
bod_Kalandros, yer, but amd will be ahead of intel in 2 years, then they'll die out in 10 years05:12
DownsayOdd-rationale, my partition is 100% full05:12
Odd-rationaleDownsay: Were you able to get any cd to boot? The alt cd?05:12
jescisdthacker, I didn't have any libstd packages installed05:12
DownsayOdd-rationale, no, no cd will boot\05:12
Grifte1either on reboot or when I reset the desktop05:12
Kalandrosbod_: Don't get on this topic, people have been saying that for years. Who has the best Quad-Core out? Intel. The Phenom doesn't even compare.05:12
Odd-rationaleDownsay: How did you install ubuntu?05:12
DownsayOdd-rationale, they will play, but will not boot at startup even after bios has been adjusted05:12
gr1ff1nwould you know why I keep getting the error : configure: error: Package requirements (pygtk-2.0 >= 2.8.0) were not met. When i install wan -> python-gtk2-dev is installed ....05:12
gr1ff1nWhen I install awn05:13
DownsayOdd-rationale, I installed it by downloading Feisty Fawn, burning it to a cd, and then rebooting computer with feisty fawn in my drive (I did this bout 8 months ago)05:13
prince_jammysDownsay: are you able to boot that CD now?05:13
dthackerjescis: My Spidey sense tells me that you will have to do some googling to find which ubuntu package provides this library.   Hang on a sec....05:13
Odd-rationaleDownsay: And since then you can never boot cd?05:13
Downsayprince_jammys, I do not have that cd with me, I am 300miles away at school05:13
bod_Kalandros, yer, but intel are only known worldwide because of their connection with pcworld,. people would never here the word intel unless they worked in developing hardware otherwise05:13
DownsayOdd-rationale, I've never tried since then until today05:14
darkcrabKeith : http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=750005:14
DownsayOdd-rationale, when I download gparted, for example, do I need to extract it and then burn it to a cd?05:14
prince_jammysDownsay: you are positive that you burnt the CD image and not the CD data (in the recent Cd you burnt)?05:14
Kalandrosbod_: But that still supports my point, Intel is over AMD. People ask what AMD is, not Intel.05:14
jescisdthacker, that wont be necissary,it worked thanks. :)05:14
Odd-rationaleDownsay: No05:14
prince_jammysDownsay: you need to burn the iso as image05:14
Downsayprince_jammys, no, I am not positive at all, I'm a newb05:14
prince_jammysDownsay: this *might* be the problem05:15
Downsayprince_jammys, how do I burn as an iso?05:15
dthackerjescis: yay! \o/05:15
prince_jammysDownsay: what software are you using to burn?05:15
Motorsport3Downsay: if the CD can be read from w/in the OS, it should be able to boot from CD05:15
bod_Kalandros, yer, but even without publicity amd are competing with 'if you like' media iants05:15
dthackerbut for future reference you can search for package contents here: http://packages.ubuntu.com/05:15
Downsayprince_jammys, I'll have to do it in windows because I don't have any room to DL the gparted file on this comp05:15
Downsayprince_jammys, I didn't use any software, just copy/pasted it onto a cd-r05:15
Motorsport3Downsay: also, why don't you delete the WinXP virtual machine?05:15
Kalandrosbod_: Eh, I don't really care who wins, there will be a better computer either way. =]05:16
darkcrabGriftel first thing I always go to is the driver. See if you have the proper restricted driver installed. If you do not, then get it. If you do, try to configure it. If it is configured correctly. Then start searching the forums.05:16
Motorsport3Downsay: you copied and pasted what to CD-ARE?05:16
DownsayMotorsport3, I'd like to delete the WinXP VM, but I don't know how (I've already deleted Virtual Box)05:16
cottimaI am having trouble installing linux raid.05:16
bod_Kalandros, true, and fair play,. and why didnt we get !ot 'd during this convo i wonder?05:16
DownsayMotorsport3, yes, I did, my CD-R's are really old, I never use them, so I don't care if they work properly or not, I have plenty of them05:16
Odd-rationaleDownsay: Did you delete the ~/.VirtualBox folder?05:16
Kalandrosbod_: What's that command for? Silencing?05:17
namegameI would try a DVD-R if possible05:17
Motorsport3Downsay: you have to burn the ISO to CD, not copy it to CD05:17
DownsayOdd-rationale, I typed in sudo rm ~/.VirtualBox05:17
prince_jammysDownsay: then what's happening is the CD contains a file gparted.iso or something, which won't boot05:17
ubotuTips and tricks for RAID and LVM can be found on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RaidConfigurationHowto and http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO - For software RAID, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto05:17
bod_Kalandros, silencin? what i dont understand -- im not too savy with the irc lino05:17
cottimaI used Anaconda on Centos to partition for RAID 1 and LVM205:17
Odd-rationaleDownsay: Any errors?05:17
Downsaywhat program should I use to burn it as an ISO?  I don't have any programs for that that I know of05:17
DownsayOdd-rationale, no, it didn't show any errors05:17
Odd-rationaleDownsay: From windows or ubuntu?05:17
prince_jammysDownsay: try deepburner, it's free. and select "Burn cd image"05:18
Motorsport3Downsay: on windows or Ubuntu?05:18
Grifte1darkcrab: how do I know if I have the proper driver installed? how do know which driver I should have?05:18
Kalandrosbod_: Well, I didn't know what you said with !ot 'd05:18
rrmhad a question.  can you have xfce only not the gnome libs and all that... sincer i tried that and my system crashed05:18
dthackercottima: and...?05:18
Downsayit will have to be windows because I don't have enough room here05:18
Kalandrosbod_: I'm not a IRC expert either. xDDD05:18
DownsayShould I go ahead and extract the file and then burn as an ISO or don't extract?05:18
Odd-rationaleDownsay: Let me get you link...05:18
prince_jammysDownsay: you can use DeepBurner -- just make sure you "burn cd image"05:18
darkcrabGriftel, well first off, you need to open the hardware manager, and look and see if your devices is recognized and functioning properly. Even if you obviously know its not fuctioning properly, you need to see what the system says.05:19
bod_Kalandros, !ot = !offtopic05:19
prince_jammysDownsay: otherwise you just burn a data cd that contains the iso file. this is why it won't boot05:19
Kalandrosbod_: I don't know what that does. o_O05:19
darkcrabOnce you do that, then you can decide whether you have the proper driver or not by what it says is installed.05:19
Downsayprince_jammys, that's fine, but after I've dl'ed the file I don't know what to do05:19
icesword! BURN05:20

cottimadthacher, Since I am new to ubuntu, I do not how to install a package on the live cd05:20

darkcrabpreferences>hardware information05:20
Downsaymotorsport3, after I unzip it then I burn the entire folder as an image via deepburner?05:20
Kalandrosbod_: I see, and thanks. =]05:20
Odd-rationaleDownsay: try: http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/isorecorder.htm05:20
prince_jammysDownsay: what is the name of the file you downloaded?05:20
iceswordDownsay, no,you need to burn a iso file05:21
Motorsport3Downsay: no, just the ISO. I say use IMGBURN, www.imgburn.com All it does is burn ISO05:21
bod_Kalandros, no probs and....05:21
Downsayok, I'll try that05:21
dthackercottima: what package are you attempting to install?05:21
bod_!ubotu > Kalandros     you can find the factoid commands here05:21
DownsayI'll be back in a few minutes05:21
Kalandrosbod_: Interesting. =]]]05:22
Downsaythx for the help05:22
prince_jammysDownsay: hold on05:22
prince_jammysDownsay: what is the full name of the file you downloaded?05:22
prince_jammysincluding extension05:22
bod_Kalandros, also only talk to ubotu for your knowledge in a private session, dont flood the channel just so you can see what they do ,.,. eg, type this                /msg ubotu !ohmy05:22
iceswordprince_jammys, i think it is *.zip05:22
DownsayI don't know, I downloaded it from ubotu's descriptions when I typed in /msg ubotu gparted05:22
ubotuGParted is a !GUI partitioning program. Type « sudo apt-get install gparted » in a console to install it - A GParted "live" CD is available at http://gparted-livecd.tuxfamily.org/05:23
Motorsport3looks like they're in bz2 and tar files05:23
Lartza_My system has got a little unstable, shuold I reinstall?05:23
cottimadthacker sorry, dmraid05:23
bod_Lartza_, whats unstable about it?05:23
iceswordseems it is iso file05:23
Downsayprince_jammys, then I clicked on the sourceforge http:05:24
Lartza_aMSN stopped working, teewars stopped working, weather applet stopped working, dns problems05:24
keithclarkdthacker, thanks for your help by the way05:24
Downsayprince_jammys, and I downloaded the first gparted iso05:24
Lartza_dns problems are fixed(for now)05:24
dthackerkeithclark: np ;D05:24
Lartza_oh... and internet is slow05:24
bod_Lartza_, id suggest sticking with it, asking bout specific things in here, using alternatives, and waiting a month for the next release ,.,. Hardy05:24
Lartza_I spent a hour resolving a teewars problem on teewars chan and nobody could help05:25
dthackercottima: Have you installed ubuntu?05:25
Lartza_it sotpped working in a reboot05:25
Grifte1Alright I'm looking in the device manager for my M-Audio Audiophile 24/96. I found the profile for ICE1712 which has many sub-profiles for ALSA and OSS.05:25
Ezrawhat does the install - f command do?05:25
Lartza_cant join games05:25
prince_jammysDownsay: then you don't have to unzip anything. the file is already a .iso05:25
Downsayprince_jammys, so once I finish dl'ing this file then I can go ahead and use deepburner?05:26
Lartza_how can i get amsn work?05:26
cottimadthacker, no I have not.  I am trying to do RAID 1, then LVM, then install.  But I can not get neither lvm2 or linux raid.05:26
darkcrabif it doesnt show up in that list of hardware then most likely that is why your having a problem.05:26
prince_jammysDownsay: either that or the other burner that's up there05:26
darkcrabSometimes the linux drivers work, and sometimes they dont.05:26
darkcrabthe price you pay for opensource sometimes.05:27
prince_jammysDownsay: whatever you use, make sure it's set to "burn cd image".  one of the links if you scroll up is for a burner that only burns images05:27
bod_Lartza_, run amsn from terminal then pastebin the error messages05:27
Downsaycould you help me download deepburner and get it set up, I'm not sure how to do that still with Linux05:27
dthackercottima: the partioning tool on the liveCD should handle Raid1 with LVM.05:27
Motorsport3deepburner is on windows05:27
Downsaywhen I go to deepburner.com I then click on download, then first one down that says free05:27
* dthacker has 3 minutes left05:27
prince_jammysDownsay: hold on, what do you mean with linux?05:27
darkcrabso if you dont see the name of your sound card the next step is to do a search for restricted packages for your audio card online05:27
fismoll8hey guys--was wondering what the /sys folder is for--mine is empty and I'd like to delete it05:28
prince_jammysDownsay: i thought you were doing this in windows05:28
DownsayI mean I'm not sure how to install things after I dl them05:28
Lartza_bod_:this might solve other problems because two other programs stopped working same time05:28
Motorsport3Downsay: deepburner is on windows05:28
DownsayI'm in Linux atm05:28
Downsayok then05:28
Downsayso I have to go to windows?05:28
KalandrosAnybody use Wine?05:28
Downsayso I should cancel this dl05:28
prince_jammysDownsay: ok let's clarify - windows or linux?05:28
sutabiAnyone know why I cant set my resolution any higher then 1024x768? this is a widescreen LCD plus it scales a lot higher on windows05:28
bod_Lartza_, getting error messages is always the first step -- we cant fix things unless we know whats broken05:28
Starnestommyfismoll8: it usually holds certain info that the kernel and system programs use05:28
ubotuIn place of  "Does anyone/anybody...", please be aware, one persons expert is another persons beginner, please ask your question in full, then see what helps!05:28
dbmood1what is the problem hacker05:28
Lartza_bod_: there are no error messages05:28
DownsayI'm currently ON linux and I was wanting to burn from Linux right now05:28
fismoll8then why is it empty starnestommy05:28
Lartza_should i strace amsn?05:28
dbmood1and ... you are using a live cd ?05:28
prince_jammysDownsay: oh then you don't need to download anything05:29
Lartza_bod_: no errors05:29
bod_Lartza_, then the program works,.,. do       sudo apt-get purge amsn && sudo apt-get install amsn05:29
prince_jammysDownsay: if you use ubuntu, you can just click on the iso i think and the burner will open a window05:29
Lartza_its not the apt-get version05:29
Lartza_and it stopped working yesterday05:29
bod_Lartza_, why not?05:29
jeffMASTERflexDownsay: just insert an empty disc into your optical drive05:29
Lartza_it starts and the window is grey05:29
bod_Lartza_, wot did you do to break it yesterday?05:29
Lartza_i dont know05:30

fismoll8however, I have deleted my opt folder...didn't seem to be doing much05:31
dbmood1oh disk space problems05:31
fismoll8same with initrd05:31
prince_jammysDownsay: ok, well once the download is done, you can insert a blank CD and drag the iso file into the "nautilus cd burner" window.  then you select "burn CD image" and burn it05:31
jeffMASTERflexfismoll8: why are you deleting direcotries on / ?05:31
dbmood1burn the media and then resize if you don't want windows remove the c:windows dir05:31
Starnestommyfismoll8: initrd is used in the boot process05:31
fismoll8my computer booted fine without it05:31
Odd-rationaleLartza_: One easy way to start over again is to delete all the "." files in your home directory. That can get rid of some quirks.05:31
fismoll8there were no files in it when I deleted it05:31
Downsaylol, I suck at life, but what is the nautilus cd burner?05:31
Lartza_in the end before sigkill05:32

CarlFKis there an app that will low level format a drive?  (I have a 400gig drive that was 'wipted' and now fdisk won't read it)05:32

YeTr2_was PPC platform completely droped, or will they release a new version w/ the new LTS?05:32
Lartza_odd-rationale: havent tried with amsn though05:32
jeffMASTERflexfismoll8: if it's empty, why do you even bother deleting it?05:32
prince_jammysDownsay: it's a window that will open on it's own - it's the name of the software that burns cds05:32
cottimaokay thank you dthacker.  I just wish I did not have to keep downloading more CDs.  Have a nice day.05:32
dbmood1fismoll8: which are needed ? none just /home and etc if you are backing up really05:32

FlannelYeTr2_: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ports/releases/7.10/release/05:34

Motorsport3But, I see the exe05:34
dbmood1did ubuntu have ppc ?05:34
KalandrosMotorsport3: When I downloaded the install, it was in the Program Files...05:34
Downsayprince_jammys, What would I like to do, make audio cd, data cd, or ignore?05:34
dbmood1- try debian for ppc05:34
FlannelYeTr2_: "Officially" only because there weren't enough PPC users that were testing (so we couldn't provide adequate bugfixes)05:34
Lartza_im getting you the amsn error05:34
bod_Lartza_, your problem is "(Resource temporarily unavailable)"05:35
prince_jammysDownsay: mmm. try ignore --- and drag the iso into the window05:35
Lartza_teewars ppl said the futex line05:35
FlannelYeTr2_: the PPC versions are now community supported, pretty well, and there's where the images are (for gutsyanwyay)05:35
Flannel!ppc | YeTr2_05:35
ubotuYeTr2_: PowerPC.  Formerly used by Apple for the Macintosh line of computers. Variants are now used in popular gaming consoles. PPC was a fully supported Ubuntu architecture up to and including edgy. It is now a community port, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PowerPCFAQ05:35
Downsayprince_jammys, it didn't open up a window, should I double click on the blank cd-r on the desktop and then try and click and drag it that way?05:35
FlannelYeTr2_: that page has a lot more info than I could ever convey05:35
Motorsport3Kalandros: I see it, my launched just fine. Are you double clicking it?05:35
Lartza_bod_:all my programs freeze when connecting somewhere05:35

Lartza_amsn: connect(9, {sa_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(443), sin_addr=inet_addr("")}, 16 and freeze05:36
cottimais the server install cd totally command or is it like debian or anaconda (not gui)?05:36
Downsayprince_jammys, alright, now that I opened it up and dragged it there, I clicked write disc, it brought up the option write as image, I clicked that05:37
nickrudbod_: you sure you want im to read that factoid :)05:37
KalandrosMotorsport3: It loads, but then it doesn't load the Webpage.05:37
prince_jammysDownsay: excellent, that's it05:37
Downsayprince_jammys, then under information it says write disc to: DVDRAM or File Image05:37
Downsayprince_jammys, Do I change it to File Image?05:37
Flannelcottima: Server CD dosen't install a GUI, correct.  But, like all Ubuntu flavors, you can convert/add/whatever to any other version with a single command05:37

Grifte1Kaneda15: I'm getting audio working only intermittently with my M-Audio Audiophile Delta 249606:11
Downsayicesword, when I tried to add it to linux, it said successful, but wouldn't update the hdd space allowed for Linux, just put it under Unallocated instead06:11
benny_hi.. I'm really getting tired for youtube (I think it's flash) crashing firefox.  I didn't see anything on ubuntuforums.  Anyone know how to fix?06:12
iceswordDownsay, wait,you said add,how do you add06:12
Motorsport3icesword: he's out of disk space on his ubuntu partition, deleted his windows partition, and wants to add the unallocated free space to his ubuntu parition, correct me if I'm wrong Downsay06:12
DownsayMotorsport3, you're correct06:12
carolusflash in firefox = something to be desired06:13
iceswordi am afraid it is not easy,format that partition,when mount,where to mount06:13
Downsayicesword, I clicked on my ubuntu HDD, clicked resize/move, and then in the box where it says Free MiB to Left and Free MiB to Right, I had 0 to left, and then I put 50000 to right06:13
raiderxxHi, Im having problems putting apps on my desktop. I drag them onto my desktop, but the dont go there. They disappear. Anyone know why?06:13
Motorsport3Downsay: you can read over this article for some clarification, http://howtoforge.com/partitioning_with_gparted06:13
iceswordDownsay, where to mount it06:13
Grifte1did Kaneda15 leave?06:13

paul---i have an external ip bound to a tap device i was really really hoping that it would measure the traffic - but it doesnt seem like the traffic is being registered on the tap device by the external ip address works06:14
Downsayicesword, I don't know what mounting is really, nor do I know how to do it:(06:14
paul---how can i solve this :/06:14
prince_jammys___Downsay: i was saying you should be able to select your ubuntu partition, then "resize" and drag it so it takes over the unallocated space06:15
Motorsport3icesword: he shouldn't need to mount anything, he just wants to resize his ubuntu part. he is using gparted livecd06:15

josh18572 questions... what does supported until 2009 mean and what is the most stable server release?06:18
Motorsport3josh1857: supported until 2009 means supported until 2009, and 6.06.106:19
crediblejosh1857: dapper is currently the best choice for a server, and it's supported for 5 years on the server (but almost 2 have expired by now)06:19
iceswordjosh1857, haha,you mean stable,the sole kernel is stable,then you compile new software makes it most stable06:19
Flanneljosh1857: dapper is.  Supported until 2011 (June of 2011)06:19
benny_anyone here use opera?  it play any better with flash?06:20
josh1857supported means?06:20
crediblejosh1857: security updates06:20
josh1857it is retired after that?06:20
Flanneljosh1857: package updates (bugs/security)06:20
josh1857so after that you have to install a newer version?06:20
Flanneljosh1857: After that no more updates, yeah.  You can upgrade from one LTS to the next, however.  Hardy is coming out in April06:20
FlannelMotorsport3: the .1 (and .2) point releases are really only for the isos, not the version itself06:20
Motorsport3Flannel: didn't know that, thanks06:21
josh1857that is still slightly confusing06:21
Flanneljosh1857: What are you confused about?06:21
macogwFlannel: by what math? 2006+3=200906:21
josh1857the bugs/updates06:21
Flannelmacogw: server, 2006 + 5 = 201106:21
macogwFlannel: ooo server06:21
ubotuTo install Skype on Ubuntu, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Skype - To record on Skype, check: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SkypeRecordingHowto06:21
Flanneljosh1857: Ubuntu has frozen version numbers for its software.  The "versions" of the software it shipped with will always be those (Firefox 1.5, for instance).06:22
iceswordjosh1857, i say,you want stable,why not build a software from source06:22
Flanneljosh1857: The updates you recieve are bugfixes and security issues (which I suppose are also bugs), no new features, and no new versions06:22
macogwFlannel: no i think it has ff2 now because 1.5 gets no security updates06:22
Motorsport3macogw: I think it was just an example06:22
Flannelmacogw: no.  1.5 is getting backported updates, the ubuntu team is supporting it themselves.  2.0 is in -backports though06:22

pyrakcan i use ekiga to make calls through my phone line?06:24
pyrakmeaning, to other land lines?06:24
rhineheart_mcredible: I've seen a lot of sites that can't be accessed by numerical06:24
Flanneljosh1857: Basically once its unsupported, you need to upgrade/reinstall whatever.  It only happens because Ubuntu uses a time-based, frozen version, release methodology.  Instead of a rolling release one (like debian [stable|unstable])06:24
killowndoes anyone know any utility to do overclock on celeron processors?06:24
magnetronpyrak: yes, if you get an account at a SIP broker06:24

credibleso even when you visit a website by domain, it's being fetched by its IP06:25
pyrakmagnetron, i can't just plug in my own phone line?06:25
benny_rhineheart_m: probably some iptables hacks for that.. not that this is a helpful comment. :)06:25
josh1857flannel: so that means i need upgrade or reinstall and setup the entire server?06:25
magnetronpyrak: you could, but that would require special and uncommon hardware06:25
josh1857every 3 years06:25
josh1857or however long06:25
Flanneljosh1857: five years (on the server)06:25
Flanneljosh1857: yes, or you can just stop getting any udpates what so ever06:26
Flanneljosh1857: It's not going to magically stop working, you just wont have any updates06:26
josh1857I understand that it just seems odd for a production server06:26
PiousMinionAnyone know how I can record a video of my screen including the compiz effects?06:27
Flanneljosh1857: Well, if you dont want to be on a treadmill, however long, Ubuntu may not be the right OS for you.  We're not going to lie to you06:28
Odd-rationalePiousMinion: gtk-recordmydesktop will if you have a fast enough computer06:28

ubotucens0red: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)06:31

whos2knowwell... i can't get the other error to come up .... but... it's a simular problem.... that it can't write...07:07
whos2knowi've tried to fix the permissions... but... that didn't work...07:07
gitpikI've installed a bunch of different codecs but nothing seems to work :(07:08
J-_laptopSeveas: thank you sir! @lart Seveas for being cool. =P07:08
whos2knowi still downloads the ones that it was downloading before... but... don't download any new torrents.. :\07:08
devron6who2knowsss: i do not know then07:08
Neekumacogw: and what about the swap? my ram is 1gb now; shall i keep it with 1gb size, or make it 2gb?07:08
whos2knowtorrent paused: disk write error, open failed: '/home No such file or directory07:08
J-_laptopSeveas: does that mean, I can still use ssh keys with that protocol to secure the connection?07:08
macogwNeeku: if you make it 2GB you can use hibernate even when more than 1GB is in use07:08
whos2knowthis is the other error code I recieve.. :\07:09
SeveasJ-_laptop, correct07:09
nanobugcan someone possibly help me out07:09
macogwNeeku: if you dont use hibernate or suspend...no need to have 2GB07:09
J-_laptopSeveas: thanks07:09
nanobugi have been trying for over an hour now to get  ubuntu to allow me to use a higher screen resolution07:09
nanobugi have manually edited my xorg.conf and added a custom modeline using a generator and the specs for my monitor from the manual07:10
whos2knowany ideas?07:10
nanobugi have removed all other modelines from xorg.conf except for 1920x144007:10
nanobugbut it still boots up in 1600x120007:10
gitpikincluding the medibuntu codecs and it's still messed up. It's only some avi too not all.07:11
Neekunow that i'm deleting these partitions are they being deleted right now, or they'll be deleted after a restart?07:11
FlannelNeeku: They're being deleted right now (or assuming you've actually committed the changes)07:12
nanobugis there some sort of display mode autodetection in gutsy?07:12
nanobugbecause im not  understanding how it continues to work with 1600x1200 when I have removed all references to 1600x1200 in xorg.conf07:13
nanobugi would at least understand if x refused to start or the screen was scramble07:13
nanobugbut its like my changes in xorg.conf have no effect whatsoever07:13
gitpikanyone have any ideas?07:13
Neekuhow can i merge two fat32 partitions?07:14

Neekuhow can i merge two fat partitions?07:16
Seveasno idea07:16
ParanoyaMSeveas thanks07:17

Seveasmacogw, if 'asp linux' has that07:17
PendetaIs there a way to prevent users from playing internet games?07:17
FlannelPendeta: Take away their internet07:17
macogwSeveas: er....oh yeah....well, s/he could compile it07:17
Seveasmacogw, :)07:18
Neekuany ideas?07:18
macogwSeveas: and then use it to finish compiling asterisk.... yay, yak shaving!07:19
PendetaFlannel, is there any other way (besides shooting them)?07:19
prince_jammyshang them07:19
SeveasPendeta, don't install flash or java07:19
prince_jammysthere you go07:19
macogwPendeta: block the websites that have games07:19
FlannelPendeta: Considering the internet has games over HTTP, no, not really.  You could try and do the filter thing, but its unlikely to work, and has lots of false positives, and stuff.07:19

mandrigSo I just installed Ubuntu, for I think the 3rd time.07:21
yigalOdd-rationale: Isn't it cool, I have beagle and the two together are really neat07:21
darkcrabdoes anyone know how to update ubuntu's clamav to the current version?07:21

Neekucan't i merge two partitions using ubuntu partitioner?07:22
yigaldarkcrab: use "#freshclam"07:22
yigaldarkcrab: sudo freshclam07:22
darkcrabno, I dont mean the virus definitions, I mean the actual program.07:22
Odd-rationaleyigal: Have you figured out hot make it not so transparent when using compiz. I can hardly read anything07:22
Odd-rationale* not so transparent07:22
yigalOdd-rationale: I am using metacity with compositing, basically transparent terminals and a few other things but not full blown compiz07:23
yigalOdd-rationale: it's much less resource intensive and does what I want it to07:23
aroonitop seems to be a poor way of seeing where my memory is allocated; is there a better way?07:23
Odd-rationaleyigal: ok. I use metacity for every day computing. Compiz for show off ;) I would like to gnome-do to my demo, but it comes up so transperent07:24

armedkingHey all, Last couple of days i had trouble with 2D rendering in Ubuntu (Bringing CPU to 100% when drawing 2D incl Metacity) what i did is test my card on a windows box (Nvidia 8600GTS) with Windows Nvidia Drivers and tested my card on all aspects saying all works ok. Can i assume now that it's a Software problem? Because i want to figure out now what's Causing the problem.07:25
BobSapphow do i install lmsensors so i can sense my cpu temperature?07:26
pluxBobSapp: apt-get install lmsensors07:26
jetscreamerthen run sensors-detect07:26

jetscreamerarmedking: with windows nvidia drivers?07:27
BobSappthankyou plux07:27
armedkingjetscreamer, yes and i ran the Windows Diagnostics on the card all night.07:27
jetscreamerarmedking: try glxinfo | grep vendor07:27
jetscreamermplayer or anything07:28
armedkingjetscreamer, i just wanted to make sure it's not my card so i can work on the problem at hand07:28

armedkingjetscreamer, Yes they do ;-) driver is installed correct. 3D rendering works like a charm but 2D is a pain.07:29
VioletCrimeHeyas everybody! I'm essentially brand-spankin new to linux as a whole. I'm completely lost as to where to start. I keep trying to find a glossary for things like GNOME and other linux-specific lingo so I can start to make sense of it all, but keep coming up empty. Anyone have some links they can toss a newbies way?07:30
armedkingjetscreamer. What i was thinking it had to do something with Mesa (responsible for 2D drawing) lookt more like my box makes Xorg responsible for 2D and not my card07:30
jetscreamerarmedking: is that the ubuntu driver or the nvidia driver07:30
jetscreamerubuntu restricted i mean07:31
gambakufuI'm trying to install libapache-mod-ssl, but I'm getting an error telling me that the package is either missin, obsolete or only available from another source. how do I find out which of those is the actual case?07:31

jetscreamerapt-get install xine-ui07:36
armedkingjetscreamer, I'm now on my way of testing with Hardy Alpha 6 to c if that fixes it. Cause it may be because of tha latest kernel Upgrade.07:36
jetscreameryou might just need some codecs though07:36
jetscreamerarmedking: i have no idea, but did you ask in #nvidia ?07:37
gambakufuhow do I change my apt-get sources list?07:37
jetscreameredit it07:37
armedkingjetscreamer, yes they are cleuless as well. But thanks for the chat m8. I'll prob get it fixed somehow. been using Linux for 1.5 years now not planning on giving it up ;-)07:37

AntiUSAI had installed GStreamer before installing ubuntu-restrcted-extras.... could that be it.07:40
