IdleOneunop_, I dont understand it either00:00
Mark_soundray, Says no restricted drivers are needed when I try what you said00:00
soundrayvalros: does 'cd /home/$USER' work?00:00
Mark_zx-cell, did you use restricted drivers?00:00
zx-cell<Mark_>  course00:01
unop_valros, simply typing 'cd' should do00:01
nikitiskitche, that needs to be changed.  Or there needs to be an option to allow for manual installation of drivers to work with ubuntu-desktop effects00:01
Mark_zx-cell, hmm when I try that in Administration, it says I don't need any00:01
valrosok i got it00:01
zx-cell<Mark_>  otherwise you yust cant enable other visual effects00:01
valrosi think00:01
soundrayMark_: in that case I would recommend that you stick with what you've got and try the Restricted... method again in hardy once it's been released and you've upgraded00:01
kitchenikitis: well here it's works fine with manual drivers00:01
brainiac8008i have an nvidia geforce 6150se and i'm running a 7.10 livecd.  i enabled the nvidia-glx-new driver. When i restarted x, i went into low graphics mode, so i restarted, once again running on the livecd.  any ideas?00:01
nikitiskitche, it was working for me, then out of the blue it just died, and went to metacity00:01

AnimortisI installed Samba and started it through the cli. I made a desktop user and then made a folder in its home folder called 'share' and gave it ownership of the folder and 775 permissions. I then added the folder to System-Administration-Shared folders and added my smb workgroup name in. I restarted Ubuntu. The xp laptop I'm serving sees the Ubuntu PC but says I do not have permissions to log in.00:08

unop_now known as pidgin00:11
kitchezx-cell: just state what the problem is and someone will answer if they knos00:11
SinistradAnimortis, smbclient is a command-line samba client, you can do something like smbclient -U username //localhost/sharename from the machine samba is running on.  If you can't access the share that way, it will rule out XP as the culprit. (if you can access, it doesn't rule out your server as the culprit)00:11

Sinistradvalros, try to isolate where the problem is (set essid manually, then set IP manually and that sort of thing, and do ping tests and all that)00:48
verb3kJack_Sparrow, Stephane Graber is a girl?00:48
valroshows the ping command go?00:48
Jack_Sparrowverb3k, I thought so.. not that it matters at all..00:49
sjovanvalros: ping hostename or ip00:49
Jack_Sparrowverb3k, Just appreciate the work..00:49
Sinistradvalros, start by pinging the IP of your Access Point (AP), then move on to something further away00:49
verb3kJack_Sparrow, xD look here: https://launchpadlibrarian.net/7713515/hackergotchi.png00:49

sjovanzx-sanji: is this in apt-get? if so... have you tryed to force it? -f ?00:51

sjovanzx-sanji: so try to force it then :)00:51
Sinistradvalros, if the router is working, then the system must be wrong.  Set things manually to reasonable values and see if it works00:51
zx-sanji triing00:52
Sinistradvalros, it may end up being that the driver the system (or you, if you pickked it) is using for your wireless card is wrong.00:52
valroswould the wireless part of the router work but the ethernets continue00:52

prohnaso anyone got an idea how to rig it to work for now?02:07
jjt009is this the IRC channel with the largest number of members?02:07
amenadoeddyMul-> rather it should just resolve the vm  local ip addresses and pass on along to real name servers for resolving addresses like www.yahoo.com02:07
nikrudbrambo_ you running 64bit? if so, sun never made a 64bit browser plugin02:07
Jordan_Unathan42100, Are you a member of the 'fuse' group and can you pastebin the output of "mount" ?02:07
prohnaits weird because if i open the ipod in amarok or something i can see the songs02:07
prohnabut just cant on the actual ipod02:07
jjt0091178 people..whoah02:08
brambo_nikrud:  yes I am on 64bit....So I cannot ever use that plugin ?02:08
eddyMulamenado: so, it looks like qemu's dns server is not passing the vm's dns requests to my dns server....02:08
kelvin911do i need a firewall?02:08
IndyGunFreakprohna: don't know.02:08
nikrudprohna yeah, the linux stuff broke the database02:08
IndyGunFreakkelvin911: don't know, do you?02:08
Jordan_U!ipod | prohna02:08
nathan42100jordan_u, just "mount" and no, not fuse02:08
kelvin911i dont know02:08
saikorbrambo_: I'm sorry I haven't read your original problem. Have you tried installing sun-java5-plugin through synaptic?02:08
anteayaamenado: I followed your instructions which got the PATH in the $PATH, but the gem is still not working for me http://pastie.caboo.se/17350702:08
godlygeekcan uswsusp be made to work with a swap file, rather than partition, in gutsy?02:08
kelvin911i am not running any firewall or anti-virus here02:08
IndyGunFreakJordan_U: i think ubotu is on break02:08
valrosi got this error again, what package is needed i forgot, error: C compiler cannot create executables02:08
kelvin911am i okay?02:08
amenadoeddyMul-> if your guest cant resolve an ip address of www.yahoo.com yeah..its not passing it02:08
brambo_saikor: I think I have but one minute, I will double check02:09
anteayaamenado: a realize the gems is not an ubuntu area of expertise02:09
IndyGunFreakkelvin911: most likely you're fine...02:09
prohnabroke the database as in?02:09
Jordan_UIndyGunFreak, ubotwo as well :(02:09
nikrudAva- the question is not very complete. /usr will be around as long as unix is02:09
prohnawould syncing it up with a windows box fix it for now?02:09
IndyGunFreakJordan_U: slackers..lol02:09
nikrudprohna yes.02:09
anteayaamenado: but i though i would get back to you02:09
amenadoanteaya-> all you asked earlier is how to add  a PATH at logon noh? or available on all your windows?02:09
IndyGunFreakprohna: should02:09
anteayaamenado: yes that is true02:09
prohnaokay question then02:09
prohnacan itunes be run under wine?02:09
=== flyback is now known as jitterbug
nikrudprohna no :)02:09
IndyGunFreakprohna: no02:09
anteayaamenado; and thank you02:10
tifinei want to give the fix ip address to pc so that no body else can get that ip is it possible ?02:10
=== jitterbug is now known as flyback
prohnaits like the worlds out to get me lol02:10
brambo_saikor: sun java 5 jdk fonts demo doc ? or just all of it?02:10
Jordan_Uprohna, There is a way to get new ipods to work with amarok, let me find the link02:10
amenadoanteaya-> so you got the PATH okay?  gem is a different problem right?02:10
nikrudprohna you can wait 3 weeks, right?02:10
prohnai guess02:10
Ava-nikrud: for feisty I always hade to ./configure --prefix=/usr because of where feisty stored it's stuff02:10
osenvironmenttoday is april fool day,and i was fooled by google02:10
IndyGunFreakprohna: na, you just need to exchange your ipod for a zune...lol02:10
prohnasucks though02:10
NineaxisHow do you start the ubuntu installer in text based fedora?02:10
Ava-just wondered if that has changed with gutsy and hardy02:10
anteayaamenado: you are correct and thank you02:10
nikrudAva- yes. That is standard for all unix's, will never change.02:10
valrosi got this error again, what package is needed i forgot, error: C compiler cannot create executables02:10
amenadoanteaya-> Make sure you have the 'universe' component enabled <-- clue02:10
Jordan_UNineaxis, Can you please be more clear?02:11
nathan42100Jordan_u, just "mount" and no, not fuse02:11
Ava-nikrud: some distros are /usr/local02:11
nikrudAva- and you an use  /usr/local for locally compiled stuff, I always do02:11
Ava-aren't they?02:11
trey__saikor... hanging in there? im still trying to open restricted drivers (installing somthin for that now...) do you remember me?02:11
anteayaamenado: i thank you i will look02:11
Erickj92i cant connect to any IRC network on my Ubuntu machine, what could be going on?02:11
saikortrey__: yeah :)02:11
IndyGunFreakErickj92: does it have internet access?02:11
Ava-for feisty when I installed mythtv I always had to --prefix=/usr or it wouldn't work02:11
Ava-and find it's libs02:11
brambo_saikor: should I get Java 5 or 6? I see both02:11
NineaxisJordan- I have the ubuntu alternate desktop installer on a cd, in my server currently running Fedora 8, and being a linux n00b, I don't know how to start it02:11
Erickj92IndyGunFreak, yes.. i get connection refused when i try to connect to one02:11
nikrudAva- the idea is /usr  is for packaged up stuff. /usr/local is where you put your own stuff. /usr/local/lib should be fine02:11
saikorbrambo_: personally I'd go for 602:11
trey__saikor: good didnt want to run through every thing again! LOL! ;)02:12
IndyGunFreakErickj92: do you ahve a firewall that could be not allowing it to run?02:12
Erickj92IndyGunFreak, i have a firewall, but i thought i disabled it02:12
IndyGunFreakErickj92: software or hardware?02:12
brambo_saikor: 5 and 6,  6 is just an updated version?02:12
Erickj92IndyGunFreak, software, and a linksys router02:12
nikrudAva- ah, /etc/ld.conf.d/glibc should have /usr/local/lib in it, which makes libs in /usr/local/lib available02:12
saikorbrambo_: yeah02:13
Erickj92IndyGunFreak, it has worked before02:13
=== alan__ is now known as Alan_M

Erickj92oh, ok02:13
Erickj92IndyGunFreak, i have firestarter02:13
brambo_saikor: once I get this, should firefox realize its there and use it to run certain things?02:13
nathan42100hey, ummmm, I used to be able to mount my NTFS-3G drives, now I can't. No error or anything. Checked the log, nothing there either. I just updated something a few hours ago, either libc6 or libpq5.02:14
brambo_saikor: for the sites that it will work with02:14
MerevaikOk I gtg, thanks anyway EzraEzra02:14
IndyGunFreakErickj92: i know nothing about linux s/w firewalls, but i'm guesing thats where your issue is gonna be02:14
Erickj92IndyGunFreak, that fixed it :)02:14
Erickj92thank you02:14
nikrudnathan42100 after upgrading libc6 it's usually good to reboot. Have you done that?02:14
IndyGunFreakErickj92: i figured02:14
Ava-is there anyway to force a reinstall of hardy?02:14
Ava-my gdm is running so slow it's unusuable02:14
nathan42100nikrud, yeah02:14
saikorsaikor: it should work. If it doesn't firefox should popup and ask you to install plugins. Then just select java 6 plugin and it will work fine.02:14
Ava-and i've tried 2 different nvidia drivers thinking thatmight be the problem02:14
nikrudAva- a fresh install is a forced install02:14
nathan42100though it should tell you that, especially for the newbs like me02:15
Ava-I have no blank cd's and I only have inet02:15
saikorbrambo: it should work. If it doesn't firefox should popup and ask you to install plugins. Then just select java 6 plugin and it will work fine.02:15
nikrudnathan42100   tail -f /var/log/syslog , you should see some messages when you doubleclick and enter your password02:15
Ava-and I won't wanna lose a lot of what I have on this hard drive02:15
nikrudnathan42100 that is, type the /var/log/syslog02:15
eriscowhy is open office so slow?!?!?!?!?!02:15

ross`_hey, i can keep hitting back in shell and see all the way to my first command02:15
eriscoit is taking an EON to save my three slide presentation!!!!02:15
ross`_im wondering what the file is02:15
ross`_so i can search it02:15
nathan42100nikrud, im confused, what?02:15
ross`_what file is all your commands you did saved in02:16
valroswhat package fixes this error, ive done it before but forgot, error: C compiler cannot create executables02:16
nikrudAva- you should backup, and on this install add a partition for /home  also, !clone below will help you with resetting packages02:16

nikrudnathan42100   :)   type   tail -f /var/log/syslog    in a terminal, it will echo any messages while you mount/unmount partitions02:16
brambo_is there any major reason why I should go to Hardy vs staying with Gutsy? I have some people telling my Hardy is better in ways02:16
eriscoover two minutes so far and 75% complete saving a 3 slide presentation02:16
eriscodoes anyone else have MAJOR performance issues with open office??02:17

VTBuchi does anyone here have experience with AbiWord in 8.04?02:17

* nikrud never argues with nasty gun holders02:18
nathan42100nikrud: nope, still not mounting02:19
nikrudnathan42100 not sure what it is then. what is the partition you're looking at?02:19
brambo_saikor: have you received my private message?02:19
saikorbrambo_:  no02:19
nathan42100nikrud: both the main partition on the primary and main on the secondary, Both NTFS. the dellutility partition still loads as normal, not NTFS02:20
IndyGunFreakbrambo_: only registered users can send/receive pmS02:20
eriscoI think open office has a memory leak with images02:21
eriscoor something02:21
nikrudnathan42100 but what are the actual partition devices? /dev/sda1? or some other?  when you know, type   sudo mount /dev/<partition> /mnt  in a terminal, see what message you get02:21
bruenigerisco: java.02:21
brambo_saikor: I ran into a program in Synaptic while installing Java 6...This package is an installer package, it does not actually contrain the JDK documentation.  You will need to go download one of the archives:02:21
eriscobruenig, its java? should have guessed02:21
trey__saikor, looks like i have to reboot now hold on...02:21
eriscowhy do I have HUGE performance issues with java?02:21
nathan42100nikrud: how do I find that?02:21
eriscoI cannot even run eclipse02:21
nikrudnathan42100   sudo fdisk -l02:22
brambo_saikor: says press return to try again i do and it doesnt work02:22
bruenigerisco: because java is awful02:22
eriscoit freaking locks and hangs and takes 10 seconds to do a simple text insertion02:22
nikruderisco you did   sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre  ?02:22
erisconikrud, if I didn't have that, I wouldn't be using java02:22
prohnacan i upgrade to hardy now?02:22
nikrudbruenig personal opinions don't belong here ;)02:22
eriscosomething is fishy02:22
nikruderisco could have got java another way02:22
encryptzprohna: if you want02:22
brambo_nikrud: I have done it through Synaptic, not sure who you are talking to there sorry02:23
prohnaencryptz: is it stable?02:23
eriscosomething is terribly, terribly broken with my java02:23
encryptzprohna: some would say yes. others would disagree02:23
nathan42100nikrud: how do I force it02:23
nathan42100it says unclean shutdown02:23
eriscomy computer's specs are fine... but everything java preforms like crap02:23
nikrudnathan42100 ah!!!.  Best way is to boot it into windows, let windows fix it02:23
nathan42100nikrud: usually it gives me an error. I'm guessing that why02:23
nathan42100how do I force it though?02:23
eriscomy memory instantly maxes out, and the application gets slower and slower02:23

nikrudnathan42100 neener neener (with ears plugged and eyes covered ;)02:26
treysaikor: well restricted drivers opened... now what?02:26
eriscoperhaps it is because it is discarding the memory in the swap space02:26
eriscoas it does start overflowing...02:26
linxeherisco: java -version ?  other than that you need to look at your operating system software management tools (control panel, synaptic, system preferences/applications, etc)02:26
nathan42100nikrud: that doesn't help your nose....02:26
winterwolfI keep getting disconnected..02:26

nikruderisco I agree on the memory thing, I ended up getting 2gb to run eclipse and open office at the same time02:28
linxeherisco: why are you running 64bit with only 1GB ram?02:28
winterwolfsaikor: it ran into a problem while installing  sun-java6-doc02:28
eriscolinxeh, I didn't realize 64 bit meant you had to have more ram...02:28
=== saltedlight is now known as saltedlight_
linxehyou should only be considering 64bit really if you have >2GB RAM - otherwise its just causing problems for yourself02:28
eriscolinxeh, why?02:29
valroson the gnome upper bar, do the bars accurately depict wireless conenction?02:29
saikorwinterwolf: oh? do you need the docs?02:29
eriscolinxeh, I have never heard of this kind of relation before02:29
linxeherisco: it doesnt - its just there is no real advantage till you get to 2+GB, and below that you have pain because loads of software still isnt 64bit, primarily commercial stuff. plus until recently suns 64bit linux jvm was incomplete (maybe it still is, java plugin etc)02:29
winterwolfsaikor: I dont think so but how do I skip that part?02:29
eriscolinxeh, I have a 32bit browser, that is fine. other than that all the software runs fine02:30

saikorwinterwolf: also, what error are you getting installing the docs?02:30
linxeherisco: regardless, you need more ram :)02:30
eriscolinxeh, I do a lot of crap on this computer, and I wasn't really interested in wasting 3/4 of my processor power02:30
linxeherisco: you could try running fluxbox / xfce4 to reduce your ram usage though02:30
eriscolinxeh, I don't think I should. if java really takes that much ram it is utterly useless02:30
linxeherisco: you wont waste any processing power really02:31
treysaikor: do you mind me sending you a screenshot?02:31

winterwolfsaikor: Its hard to explain, can I message you via another program and send you a screenshot?02:31
sk8ballhow can i get X back to the original configuration that ubuntu detected on its own?02:31
linxeherisco: ok, fair enough, but Gnome etc is eating loads of that ram up already. openoffice just hogs memory big time, and so does eclipse. it's not java so much, just the way those apps are written (or in the case of eclipse, just how rich it is)02:32
saikorerrr you could delete /etc/X11/xorg.conf (MAKE A BACKUP)02:32
treysaikor: did you get it?02:32
winterwolfsaikor: brb02:32

adrock358Ok.  I had a dual install (win/ubunt).  I was having problems getting on the net and decided it would be better to just do a fresh install.  So, I erased the partition that ubuntu was installed on (on my WD 320 gb HD).  At the same time, I decided to increase my Windows Partition size, so I did that using Gparted.  I repartitioned the unallocated space, that partly housed my past Ubuntu installation.  So, I erased the Ubuntu partition from my singular HD,02:54

StevenXbazhang, I found the tutorial on ubuntuforums.org. Thank you. One last question. Will Amarok let me delete and make queues?03:35
barnabyman i misremember, but it does see it, hda1? sda1?03:35
bazhangStevenX: you mean playlists? is that queues? fairly sure the answer is yes03:35
barnabyi never formatted it, just wiped it with gparted. Maybe that's the prob?03:35
Mezrissis it possible to get libc6 2.6 sourcw and compile it to replace 2.7?03:36

icanhasadminbarnaby: lol, maybe a google search will do you good :) fdisk allows you to partition CLI, mkfs allows you to set the file system03:39
Mezrissoh.... it IS possible to force synaptic to install older version03:39
jribNW2190: if you do 'vnoremap > >gv' in your .vimrc, it will work nicer (stays highlighted).  Also, #vim is more likely to help with these kind of things03:39

MidgetSpyhey all, on a default install of 7.10 my onboard sound worked perfectly with no tinkering. I just upgraded my kernel to and after rebooting I'm now getting also errors "No such device". I assume this means that some of the default options on the new kernel are different and I didn't load the module for my sound card, correct? How can I find out what it was and load it?03:49

themimeOdd-rationale: not installed, needs network-manager-gnome.  someone suggested this earlier but i was hoping i could do this without installing 1000 gnome dependencies05:32
Odd-rationalethemime: i see.05:32
diagonI'm interested in always booting to bash and only loading X if I need it for something, could someone tell me where it says to load X up in the boot process?05:33
nikrudowen1 the flow is it downloads the package to /var/cache/apt/archive , then extracts it to the proper locations, and optionally runs some commands to let the rest of the system know it's installed05:33
owen1nikrud: great. is it the same when i compile and install an app? (./configure make make install)?05:33
diagonor after the boot process or whatever05:33
themimeOdd-rationale: is there some alternate, or should i find out how to manually do it and make a script?05:33
nikrudowen1 no, that's where you do need to think about location. By default, most will install  into /usr/local/<some dirs>05:33
Odd-rationalethemime: I dont know how to connect to a wireless network from the command line in Ubuntu. I do know how to do it in Arch. :P05:33
owen1nikrud: got it. thanks a lot.05:34
themimehehe, ok thanks anyway, ill just google it05:34
nikrudowen1  you can do  ./configure --help , and it will tell you much. Including the installation directories05:34
themimeand if not, ill come back and see if someone knows how, or check ##linux05:34
ShiI created user accounts for friends and w have discovered that while I installed emacs they get fatal erros/core dumps trying to use emacs05:34
Odd-rationalethemime: let me know what you find.05:34
owen1nikrud: does it matter where do i put the source files?05:34
sphinxxhi can someone pm me, i need help setting up partitions for ubuntu05:35
Odd-rationalesphinxx: It is better to ask in the channel. What help do you need?05:35
nikrudowen1 no. I usually have a directory in my home called projects, and compile in there. The main reason to do the compiling in home is you have easy editing of the files05:35
diagonI'm trying to tell my machine to not automatically load X windows, but to instead go directly to bash...05:35
sphinxxOk, thanks, I hate to sound like a noob but I am with linux, I have a laptop 30gb hard drive, I want to partition for ubuntu - i have the 7.10 alternate cd05:36
sphinxxi want to leave 16gb or so for a later windows xp install05:36
diagonI remember I did it before, by changing default_window_manager (somewhere) = /usr/bin/bash I Think05:36
nikruddiagon install sysv-rc-conf , and turn off gdm. Next boot you will get bash.05:36
Odd-rationalesphinxx: it is a better idea to install xp first05:36
ShiI created user accounts for friends and w have discovered that while I installed emacs they get fatal erros/core dumps trying to use emacs05:36
Shiwhat could be the problem05:36
Steven1Ah damnit. The toolbars are all gone again05:36
diagonnikrud: this is actually for a box that doesn't have an internet connection :P05:36
diagonnikrud: so I was trying to muck about in the files (figure it's somewhere in /etc)05:37
sphinxxwhen I do install ubuntu though, how many partitions will I need?05:37
nikruddiagon ah. then,   sudo mv /etc/rc2.d/S30gdm /etc/rc2.d/K30gdm05:37
Odd-rationalesphinxx: install xp normally first. then the ubuntu installer will offer you to shrink the xp partition. and setup for dual-booting05:37
fivehorizonsThanks for the help Odd-rationale and n2diy05:37
owen1nikrud: so the way to choose a location is by adding an argument to ./configure05:37
Odd-rationalesphinxx: reccomend 205:37
diagonahhhh that's right, the S->K thing05:37
diagonthanks very much05:37
sphinxxbecause i get confused, intially I see it just needs /root and swap05:37
sphinxxbut then I see it says its a good idea to have /home and there are others too?05:38
Odd-rationalesphinxx: one for root (/) and another for swap.05:38
Steven1Yeah the minimize and maximize buttons on firefox are gone.05:38
ShiI created user accounts for friends and w have discovered that while I installed emacs they get fatal erros/core dumps trying to use emacs, what could be the problem?05:38
alan_mrecommended 2, you CAN have home on a 3rd, but that gets things complicated for a newer user. in my opinion Sphinxx05:38
nikrudowen1 exactly.  --prefix=/usr is common, but in general you should install to /usr/local , it's defined in the file hierarchy standard as the place for locally compiled apps/libs05:38
Odd-rationalesphinxx: a /home partition is a generally a good idea05:38
Odd-rationalesphinxx: But you can even get away with just one /05:38
sphinxxhow big should a /home partition be, if my complete linux space is going to be about 14gb05:38
Azur3ok, flash isn't working on firefox (7.10 ubuntu is distro)  I have installed missing plugins, restarted firefox, and it says  that i still need to install missing plugins, that adobe is already installed05:38
Azur3should I uninstall adobe and try again? and if so how would I do that?05:39
Odd-rationalesphinxx: that size i would not make a separte home partions05:39
nikrudsphinxx with that small a partition, it makes better sense to not have a separate home. you're gonna squeeze something otherwise05:39
sphinxxhmm ok05:39
sol1tude|afkhello, somebody knows something abouut grub error 14 ? it appears when i try to boot my 7.0.405:39

alan_msphinxx, instant reply's are awesome eh :)05:40

bunghey i just got a new usb external with a sata drive in there, should i mount with sync or no?05:42
alan_msphinxx, because installing it later would wipe out GRUB...and thats bad.05:42
Odd-rationalesphinxx: xp can't find if ubuntu is installed.05:42
sphinxxbut if i have just have a partition ready to install xp on, that wouldn't work?05:42
Odd-rationaleat least not for me05:42
sphinxxlike i would make a /boot in the first 100mb of the hard disk05:42
taurusivyhi, how can i match '2' in the middle of two whitespace in regexp in awk?05:42
sphinxxfor the boot loader or whatever05:42
nikrudwarriorness it's downloaded and installed for you by msttcorefonts.  ubuntu-restricted-extras will pull in that package, as well as some others that are useful05:43
warriornessnikrud: thanks05:44
nikrudsphinxx no need to have a /boot partition anymore, that's a holdover from when it was a requirement for lilo (the linux loader)05:44
Odd-rationaleor if you have an old bios05:44
owen1nikrud: i don't see info about installation location...i guess migel de casa didn't think about it..05:44
nikrudowen1 hahahahaha I'd trust that guy05:44
sphinxxso where is the boot loader like grub stored if theres no /boot partition05:45
owen1nikrud: i guess...05:45
Odd-rationalesphinxx: in /boot05:45
Flannelsphinxx: /boot is inside of / if there is no separate partition05:45
Odd-rationalesphinxx: but it wont be on a sep partition05:45
nikrudsphinxx in the /boot and /boot/grub directories, and in the mbr05:45

nikrudowen1 hm. you compiled it there? If it doesn't do an install, the program will disappear.  That is, if there was no make install command run05:47
Odd-rationalewhat man pages should I read to learn how to connect to a wireless network from the command line?05:47
owen1nikrud: ok05:48
sphinxxcause i thought there was some weird this, maybe this outdated, but if linux wasnt installed on the first 8.5gb it would mess up05:48
sphinxxcause of the BIOS05:48
travisatOdd-rationale: interfaces05:48
sphinxxso if installed xp first it would take up the first 14gb05:48
travisatOdd-rationale: and iwconfig05:48
nikrudsphinxx old news. I have mine after a 50gb vista05:48
Steven1Everytime I run 'emerald --replace' It fixes the menubars on my windows. But then when I close the Terminal window it fails again. How do I fix it permanently?05:48
sphinxxman im such a newbie05:48
Odd-rationaletravisat: ok thanks! any more?05:48
nikrudSteven1 run it with   alt-f2 emerald --replace .05:49
travisatOdd-rationale: make sure you have the right packages installed05:49
sphinxxso the only reason for installing xp first is so that i would be able to see linux drives in windows?05:49
Odd-rationaleSteven1: run it in a run dialog instead of terminal05:49
travisatOdd-rationale: basically you get your wireless to show up under iwconfig and ifconfig then edit /etc/network/interfaces to get it to work05:49
Steven1Odd-rationale: What do you mean run dialog? Isn't that terminal?05:49
Odd-rationaleSteven1: alt+f205:49
nikrudsphinxx mainly so that when you install windows, it doesn't overwrite the part of grub that's written to the mbr and prevent you from booting linux. If you do linux second, it'll automatically add windows to the boot menu05:49
Steven1Alt+F2 does nothing.05:50
Odd-rationaletravisat: then /etc/init.d/networking start ?05:50
cchildhow do i shred or wipe a linux part by writing 1/0 to it?05:50
travisatOdd-rationale: I have done wireless for a while but if you look for slightly older debian how-tos they work for ubuntu05:50
travisatOdd-rationale: haven't I mean05:50
cchildhow do i shred or wipe a linux partition by writing 1/0 to it?05:50
eshaasewhats the most thorough way to scan my hard disk for errors?05:50
nikrudcchild install wipe05:50

sphinxxno problem05:52
sphinxxyou are being very helpful05:52
nikrudJanPeter in /bin ? You do not want to delete those05:52
JanPeteri meant in the recycling bin05:52
travisatOdd-rationale: you can man those to I think to learn them,  in your interfaces file if you set the network interface as auto it will connect when you reboot05:52

cchildorbisvicis, the drive is dying and i just got the replacement and need to return the defected. so I want to wipe it clean05:53
nikrudsphinxx it's really simple. Install windows, then boot the livecd and tell it to use the remainder of the disk ;)05:53
sphinxxwhen i was running the ubuntu live cd, i did get this 'I/O Buffer error device fdo" or something like that05:53
nikrudJanPeter stop!05:54
sphinxxsomeone told me to disable the floppy in the bios, but the bios on this laptop is really simple, there is not that option, nor is there a floppy on the laptop05:54

travisatsphinxx: nah06:01
Rob125Odd-rationale: True, I suppose06:01
sphinxxjust to set up the space06:01
sphinxxthis is how i want to do i think06:01
nikrudsphinxx see travisat06:01
Flannelcchild: shred works too, and is already installed (and will automatically iterate through it however many times you want, including random, etc)06:01
Kcaj2I was wondering if there is any kind of way to utilize multiple network connections at the same time? For instance, if you have access to multiple ISPs and the network adapters to connect to them both simltaneously06:01
travisatsphinxx: just leave enough empty space for linux and let the ubuntu installer guide to free space06:01
PositronicDoes anyone know the link to the website that automatically rebuilds your repositories?06:01
Kcaj2Is there a way to harness BOTH connections? (or Three, for that matter006:01
FlannelPositronic: It's not up anymore, you can do the same thing via Software Sources06:02
nikrudsphinxx see travisat again. Like I said, you're not really using enough space to make a separate / and /home cost effective06:02
sphinxxdoes anyone know this- the only difference between NTFS format and NTFS format (quick) is that quick doesn check the disk for errors06:02
Steven1How do you move a whole directory? What's the format?06:02
PositronicFlannel: any recommended Software sources?06:02
FlannelPositronic: the official ones06:02
travisatsphinxx: its more different then that but that is a difference06:02
sphinxxi did quick just cause i don't want to wait06:03
Smegzoroops!  I meant chmod.  What do I enter to chmod my /home/smegzor folder back to what it was set at when it was created?06:03
cchildshred vs wipe vs dd ?06:03
PositronicFlannel, thanks06:03
travisatsphinxx: you normally don't need to do more then quick, although it is suggested for a new hard drive to do a full format06:03
amenadoKcaj2-> yes its possible with the use of iptables and iproute2 tools, look into route policy via google06:03
sphinxxI believe i did a full one on this drive before, so i just did quick now:)06:03
nikrudSmegzor   grep 1000 /etc/passwd, find the user name on that line. then   sudo chown -R <username>:<username> /home/smegzor06:03

pat5staris there someway to reload the kicker (isn't that what you call the panel that runs across the bottom of the screen?)?06:04
pat5starafter sometime, mine starts to act up06:04
orbisvicisSmegzor, the general idea is chown user:user -R ~/; chmod -R 755 ~/ but there are some special files with different permissions06:04
travisatSteven1: mv06:04
Steven1travisat: Thanks06:04
sphinxxif I have 512mb ram should my swap be 1024mb or 768mb?06:04
amenadoSteven1-> they  use mv ... try with sample directories you can create..06:04
PositronicFlannel, how would I find a repository URL for XGL it appears the current one I have is no longer accessible?06:04
Flannelsphinxx: 102406:04

FlannelPositronic: What version of Ubuntu are you running?06:05
Steven1travisat: It says 'unable to remove target: Is a directory'06:05
amenadosphinxx-> hard disk memory for swap is so cheap..06:05
Odd-rationaleSo if I had 4gb of ram I should have 8gb of swap?06:05
PositronicFlannel, 7.1006:05
travisatSteven1: mv -r06:05
nikrudSmegzor you probably shouldn't, there are a few things that will break if you set them to 75506:05
Odd-rationale4gb of swap seems to be the max for me...06:05
cchildwhich is best for wiping a disk, shred vs wipw vs dd?06:05
FlannelPositronic: Gutsy already does that sort of stuff, you don't need third party repos for it06:05
sphinxxisnt swap only used when theres absolute no RAM left?06:06

sphinxxyou guys have answer questions that would have probably taken me the whole day to find out on forums:)06:06
travisatSteven1: sorry mv should of done it06:06
nikrudsphinxx it swaps out unused stuff to make room for stuff that is used. It's smarter than just waiting till ram is full06:06
PositronicFlannel, when I installed 7.10 I needed to do it to get hardware acceleration to work, otherwise I had mesa06:06
sizzlewhere should i go to find some php scripts06:07
amenadoOdd-rationale-> umm on a 32bit system, you barely could even achieve 3gig from what I understood..the last 1gig is somehow not easily achievable..06:07
Flannelcchild: dd isn't.  shred is already installed, if you've installed wipe, then I guess they're both already installed.  I've never actually used wipe.06:07
travisatSteven1: what exactly are you trying to do06:07
FlannelPositronic: That doesn't mean it's not in the repositories, just that it isn't enabled for everyone by default06:07
nikrudI always installed wipe, never knew shred even existed06:07
Odd-rationaleamenado: i guess that's true...06:07
Steven1travisat: I'm moving a replacement 'Pidgin' into the old ones spot.06:07
travisatSteven1: are you trying to keep any part of the old one?06:07
Smegzornikrud: Is there a number other than 755 I should use or will things break regardless of the number used?06:07
Steven1travisat: I'm just skinning it I believe.06:08
cchildFlannel, can shred over write an entire disk?06:08
sphinxxcant wait to get this double boot set up:)06:08
Flannelcchild: yes06:08
travisatSteven1: the use cp and delete from the original06:08
nikrudSmegzor well, off the top of my head you definitely need ~/.dmrc as 60006:08
Steven1travisat: It's the Pidgin in the pixmaps folder.06:08
Flannelcchild: and over individual files as well06:08
sphinxxI was also reading about making separate partitions for /tmp and such, does this actually speed things up?06:08
travisatSteven1: are you using sudo if its in /usr/share?06:08
sphinxxlike i know on windows there is fragmentation but so there is a benefit, but linux there is none ?06:09
nikrudSmegzor and looking there  .Xauthority needs 600 as well06:09
Smegzorhmm..  I have other users that I haven't been foolish enough to mess with, I could look at the permissions there.  Is there some way to see the permissions of each directory using ls ?06:09
PositronicFlannel, I guess what I am saying is I get an error when doing the update manager stating that the XGL repository might no longer be available as it was unable to download the index for it?06:09
cchildflannel, "shred /dev/sda -n 8" would this work?06:09
Steven1travisat: Yes tried to use 'sudo cp pidgin' and 'sudo mv pidgin'06:09
Rob125Smegzor: if you're running MySQL, you should make sure you also chmod 600 your .mysql_history06:09
PositronicFlannel, you must forgive me as I am somewhat new to the linux environment as well06:09
orbisvicis2³² = 4GB so obviously the max; so why is the cap slightly under 4Gb ?06:10
nikrudSmegzor and another you'd probably want 600 is .dbus-keyrings06:10
Flannelcchild: arguments go in between shred and the thing to shred, but yes.  shred -n 8 /dev/sda06:10
travisatSteven1: ok I am confused are you trying to replace a directory or a single file06:10
Steven1travisat: sudo cp pidgin gives this: 'cp: omitting directory 'pidgin' '06:10
tarelerulzany one use gtalk voice chat at all on Linux ?06:10
Smegzorwhat about my idea of listing directories permissions?  Is that possible>06:10
travisatSteven1: ok for cp use cp -r06:10
FlannelPositronic: Just remove it entirely, Ubuntu deprecates the need for third party repos for eyecandy06:10
Steven1travisat: The whole usr/share/pixmaps/pidgin folder.06:11
FlannelPositronic: er, newer versions, that is.06:11
FY1what is the program that tracks input/output. It starts with like x or z... It will tell you the key that was pressed, mouse button, input from a controller or something06:11
Rob125Smegzor: yeah, you can do an ls -al06:11
Smegzorthanks :D06:11
Odd-rationaletravisat: I was reading through man interfaces. But how do I select a network essid and where do I put the wpa password?06:11
cchildflannel, shred -z- u -n 8 /dev/sda is what am thinking06:11
Rob125Smegzor: if they're big, don't forget to pipe it to less :)06:11
cchildflannel, shred -z -u -n 8 /dev/sda is06:11
amenadoorbisvicis-> http://dansdata.com/askdan00015.htm06:11
travisatSteven1: in the /etc/network/interfaces,  I suggest you google for debian wireless setup or something like that06:11
Steven1travisat: Ok cp -r worked.06:11
Flannelcchild: you don't use the -u on drives, that would be for a 'file' file06:12
amenadoFY1 xev06:12
PositronicFlannel, was that recently an update for ubuntu within the last few months? So you dont have to install ATI drivers and set parameters for hardware acceleration manually anymore?06:12
Steven1travisat: Uh no. usr/share/pixmaps/06:12
Odd-rationaletravisat: was that meant for me or Steven1?06:12
travisatOdd-rationale: lol you06:12
cchildflannel, thanks for your help06:12
Odd-rationaletravisat: lol ok06:12
travisatSteven1: is everything all right now?06:12
ddaltonHi im blind so can't follow this. Can you please join ##ddalton? anyway how do I connect to my wiless network with my wiless card? I believe ubuntu recognises it.06:13
FlannelPositronic: ATI drivers don't give you XGL.  I have no idea with regards to the current driver situation,  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI06:13
Smegzorhow do I list my command history showing only chmod commands I've entered?  My history is HUGE.06:13
SmegzorI want to see my original chmod line that caused all the mess.06:13
orbisvicisSmegzor, cat ~/.bash_history | grep06:14
cchildflannel, I have one more question: what is "--random-source" and the -s --size for?06:14
nikrudSmegzor grep chmod ~/.bash_history06:14
FlannelSmegzor: cat ~/.bash_history | grep chmod | less06:14
orbisvicisSmegzor, it might also be in /root/.bash_history06:14
PositronicFlannel, oh ok sorry I must have been confusing that with fglrx or something...06:14
nikrudcat to grep?  ewww :)06:14
orbisvicisnikrud, bad habit ; )06:15
troxorfor all the users of ntop out there: where did the "-S" option go in recent (>2.0) versions of ntop? is there a similar option that google isn't telling me about?06:15
Rob125nikrud: whoa, hold on. please explain? why bad?06:15
Smegzorhere it is!  chmod 0700 /home/smegzor   (is that bad?)06:15
sphinxxis having a 5gb /home and a 9gb /root not good?06:15
nikrudRob125 it's an aesthetic thing :)06:15
orbisvicisway back in the days when i used rpm-websites to install xine: library by .so file ; )06:15
nikrudSmegzor no, that's not terribly bad06:15
Rob125nikrud: how would you do it, then?06:15
nikrudRob125   grep chmod ~/.bash_history06:15
Rob125Smegzor, you should be able to fix that pretty easy, since you didn't do it recursively06:16
Flannelcchild: I don't see a --random-source on mine, but it probably is a place where you can provide the source of the random data, incase you wanted to use something more random.  And --size is not useful in this situation either, but its allowing you to overwrite an arbitrarily sized chunk06:16
Smegzoryeah I wasn't sure about that..  so just do the same with 755 ?06:16
cchildOk Flannel, thanks again06:17
nikrudSmegzor 700 is not something that will break your system, it only prevents users other than yourself reading what's in there. Some people do that on principle06:17
picharrashola que tal06:17
Smegzorthats why I did it in the first place.  But then I noticed broken stuff in gnome06:17
picharrasalguien habla español por aca?06:17
Flannelpicharras: /join #ubuntu-es06:17
Smegzorprobably just my timing, noticing things after doing that.06:18
travisatI prefer to only have files I want to execute with the 7 chmod06:18
nikrudSmegzor hm. Maybe there's something new that I'm missing. I haven't done that in a few years.06:18
Steven1travisat: Ok I am now trying to do the sounds folder now and when I move the folder into /usr/share/sounds/ The folder is empty! What gives?06:18
aoshiHow does updating to a new version of ubuntu work?06:18
travisatSteven1: when you mv directories the old directory dissappears, cp leaves old files in place...at least this is what I remember06:19
Rob125Aoshi: It works marvelously -- but how do you mean? Do you need to know how to do it? What version are you using, and what do you want to upgrade to?06:19
Steven1travisat: But when I use mv. It says unable to remove target: Is a directory.06:20
nikrudaoshi when a release is made, you will be asked if you want to upgrade to it. You can force  a check  with   sudo update-manager -c06:20
travisatSteven1: ok and when you cp -r the /usr/share/sounds folder was empty correct?06:20
Steven1travisat: The destination folder was empty yes.06:21
aoshiso in 23 days06:21
aoshihow do I go about updating to 8.04?06:21
travisatSteven1: you have no files in /usr/share/sounds or in /usr/share/sounds/pidgin?06:21
coldbootWhy is this not in gutsy?: libgtkglextmm1-dev not in gutsy? http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?searchon=names&keywords=libgtkglextmm1-dev06:21
Treyhey is anyone able to help me with a boot issue06:21
Steven1Such a headache. Why don't they just make it like Windows and let you just drag and drop it?06:21
Rob125Aoshi -- when you run update manager, it'll say 'A new distribution is available. Upgrade?'06:21
nikrudaoshi now? Know how to fix broken packages? If the answer is yes, ask how on #ubuntu+106:21
aoshiCool :D06:21

Treyguys i can't to to my ubuntu logon screen06:22

orbisvicisTrey, why ?06:23
Treythe screen just turns off06:23
nikrudheh. If Trey knew why, he wouldn't be here asking :)06:23
Treyi have be trying some fixes from the forms but no luck06:23
orbisvicisno but he should provide more info ; )06:23
owen1what folders should i keep for a backup?06:23
Treyi know its got to do with my video and the splash thats all06:23
Rob125Trey: by 'turns off', do you mean it flickers and then goes to the terminal? What are your symptoms? :)06:23
nikrudowen1 /home , /etc , and the output of  dpkg --get-selections at the minimum06:24
Treyits a laptop monitor and it literaly turns off the screen the comp stays on but nothing happens on screen06:24
owen1nikrud: you are my personal ubuntu admin..thank06:24
Steven1travisat: Did you get my IM?06:24
Treyi tried reconfiguring the xserver no luck06:25
Rob125nikrud: Man, I need to have a long conversation with you and suck the knowledge out of your brain. Why /etc?06:25
JDSBlueDevlhi, I'm having problems with encrypted DVD playback.  I have done literally EVERYTHING to try to get it to work06:25
JDSBlueDevlI'm using Gutsy, and yes, I have the medibuntu repos in my sources.list file06:25
travisatSteven1: negative06:25
nikrudowen1 you're welcome. To be honest it's nice to have someone who only needs to ask a few questions, and fills in the blanks :)06:25
nikrudRob125 well, I usually make some custom changes there, so I back up the whole thing on principle06:25
Steven1travisat: I sent another one06:25
travisatSteven1: in irc or pidgin06:26
Steven1travisat: pidgin on this room.06:26
travisatSteven1: if pidgin you are sending to somebody else06:26
Treyi also can't use ctrl alt f1 it dose nothing06:26
Steven1travisat: I clicked on your name and clicked IM.06:26
coldbootDoes anyone know why libgtkglextmm1-dev is not in gutsy/06:27
tchaskaAnybody knows a program to show the statistics of internet connection only? (exclude the local network traffic)06:27
travisatSteven1: hehe well I have no im, you have to /msg me in irc,  and I am about to go to sleep.  I think that you don't have to install themes in /usr but you can do it in your home directory.  I am sure somebody else can help you06:27
davi1hello good people06:27
Steven1travisat: What I said was (10:22:46 PM) Steven1: No no no. I'm done with the Pidgin. I'm trying to move the MacOSX_Sounds to /usr/share/sounds06:27
nikrudcoldboot do you have the universe repositories enabled? It's there in mine (hardy, but still)06:28
Steven1So can someone tell me how to move the sounds off my Desktop and into usr/share/sounds ?06:28
nikrudSteven1   sudo mv ~/Desktop/<file> /usr/share/sounds06:29
davi1hi there, im new to linux and i just installed ubuntu but my audio is not working, any ideas?06:29
nikrudSteven1 to write to anywhere outside of /home/<username> you need admin privileges, sudo gives those06:29
Erickj92i just installed the dancer-ircd doc, buy dont know there they are isntalled to06:29
owen1nikrud: and on my fresh ubuntu i can paste all the folders and i am done?06:30
nikrudErickj92 /usr/share/doc/<packagename>06:30
Odd-rationaleSteven1: Are you going through that cam4lin tutorial?06:30
Erickj92ok, thank you06:30
nikrudowen1 erm, the stuff out of your home? yes06:30
owen1nikrud: and what do i do with etc and the output of dgkg?06:31
Steven1nikrud: It still failed. Says It's a directory. Not sheet!06:31
Treyok i have some more info06:31
nikrudowen1 the /etc you might not need to do anything with, unless you know what you changed there.   for the --get-selections, you'd run:    dpkg --set-selections < packagelist && sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade to restore your package installs.06:32
nikrudSteven1 what exact command line did you use?06:32
nikrudowen1 dpkg --get-selections > packagelist creates that list for you06:33
Steven1nikrud: sudo mv ~/Desktop/Mac4Lin_v0.4/Sounds/MacOSX_Sounds /usr/share/sounds06:33
davi1any1 have an idea on how to get my audio working?06:34
owen1nikrud: so packagelist is a file i create in my old machine, and i import this file to my new machine with the < ?06:34
Treyok i did sudo lspci | grep VGA and got 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corperation GeForce 8600M GS (rev a1)06:34
nikrudowen1 exactly.06:35
Treythen i did grep -i driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf and got the list with a bunch of drivers06:35
JDSBlueDevlhi, I'm having problems with encrypted DVD playback.  I have done literally EVERYTHING to try to get it to work.  I'm using Gutsy, and yes, I have the medibuntu repos in my sources.list file06:35
Treythat help at all06:35
nikrudSteven1 that should work, moving MacOSX_Sounds to /usr/share/sounds . I was sure, and did it with a couple test dirs just now06:36
StroganoffJDSBlueDevl, you have libdvdcss2 installed? :D06:36

Additionally, this new share slows down the windows clients and I never had problems until I mounted this new hd and created the share06:37
Henrywhat's the linux kernal?06:37
bazhangJDSBlueDevl: hd-dvd or blu-ray06:37

Henryneed help what's the linux kernal?06:38
nikrudSteven1 ok, it's saying there's an error in that line. Try cd ~/home/steven/Desktop/Mac4Lin_v0.4 /Sounds , do you get there?06:38
GumbySteven1: then perhaps that directory doesnt exist?06:38
nikrudSteven1 without the space in the line06:38
bazhanghttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_kernel Henry06:39
owen1what is virtual hard disk (in virtualbox setup)?06:39
Steven1nikrud: Good idea. Just about to try that.06:39
nikrudowen1 a file that acts like a partition06:39
Odd-rationaleHenry: every OS needs a kernel. the Linux kernel is a kernel deveolped by Linus Torvalds and is open source.06:39
Henryok thanks06:40
Treyis my issue not interesting enough for you guys06:40
owen1nikrud: should i create new one? (first time using virtualbox)06:40
bazhangTrey: what is your issue06:40
TreyI can't get ubuntu to boot graphicly06:40
nikrudowen1 go thru the virtualbox installation instructions. And yes, if you don't have a virtual disk you won't have anywhere to install the virtual os to  :)06:41
Odd-rationaleTrey: Livecd?06:41
bazhangTrey: did you add acpi=off as a boot parameter06:41
owen1nikrud: and why would someone use existing one. it will override the content with new os, right?06:41
Treyno install but cd wouldn't work either06:41
nikrudTrey It is, but I'm not good with those. bazhang is a master06:41
nikrudowen1 yes, just like any install would06:41
Odd-rationaleTrey: have you tried configurin your xserver to use the vesa drivers?06:41
Steven1Since I can just point my sounds to anywhere. Do I really have to move my sounds to usr/share/sounds?06:41
owen1nikrud: ok. thanks again..06:41
Treynot yet baz06:41
Odd-rationaleSteven1: no06:41
Treyyes odd06:42
Steven1Odd-rationale: Ah thanks.06:42
nikrudSteven1 no, anywhere you like. ~/.sounds is a reasonable place06:42
bazhangTrey: what about the alternate cd? have you given that a shot--it sometimes works when the livecd chokes and allows you to install the drivers at the finish of installation06:42
Steven1Wow that could have helped sooner. Lol06:43
Treyno but i will try that too06:43
* nikrud thinks that bazhang is shaking a virtual fist at him06:43
Odd-rationaleSteven1: here's a dirty trick that is not really adviseable. in terminal do "gksudo nautilus" and move your file normally. But be careful!06:43
Treyum which one do i add acpi to06:43
Treythe root or the kernal06:43
bazhangme give nikrud his missing 'c' ;]06:43
Steven1gksudo nautilus06:43
Steven1I don't think I have that06:43
arvind_can apt-get made be read a list of sources from a file???06:44
Odd-rationaleSteven1: you don't have nautilus?06:44
Steven1Ah ok I got it.06:44
nikrudI'm on a weight loss program. I figured a little virtual weight loss couldn't hurt06:44
Steven1Thought it was something that came with KDE06:44
Rob125Stupid question: Difference between gksu and gksudo?06:44
crdlbRob125: none06:44
Odd-rationaleRob125: same06:44
Treybazhang: where do i add the acpi root or kernal06:44
crdlbone is a symlink to the other06:44
nikrudRob125 nothing anymore, gksduo is a link to gksu06:44
robmHello, I recently added a new harddrive (formated ext3) and made a new folder that I shared on samba. However previous shares that I had are not visible from windows machines anymore. Additionally, this new share slows down the windows clients and I never had sharring or connection problems until I mounted this new hd and created the share.

Erickj92where is the documentation for setting up dancer-ircd and dancer-services?06:48

Erickj92symptom, yes and all port forwarding has been set up06:57
Gnearobm2: should see something like this: tcp        0      0   *               LISTEN     5096/xinetd06:58
Odd-rationalethemime: double click06:58
sphinxxso on the 14.8gb free space im setting up a partition, how should i allocate it?06:58
themimeits a custom rtl8180-sa2400 driver for newer kernels06:58
jaffarkelshaci am looking for good security practises. i have the firestarter and clamav is there any other security that i need for ubuntu06:58
nikrudsphinxx that's all you have? There should be some free space?06:58
robm2yeah I see a bunch of lines06:58
nikrudsphinxx ah, got out of sync06:58
Gnearobm2: good. open firefox or whatever and throw it at http://localhost:90106:58
sphinxxno prob06:58
bazhangjaffarkelshac: secure passwords06:58
Gnearobm2: and just hand it root's credentials06:58
sphinxxso i should do 13.8?06:58
sphinxxand 1 for swap?06:58
symptomjaffarkelshac: encrypted filesystem06:58
nikrudsphinxx 1gb swap for your 512mb mem, the rest for /06:58
themimeOdd-rationale: er oops, i meant, what about at command line06:59
symptomjaffarkelshac: delete all web browsing logs cache and cookies when you close browser06:59
nikrudsphinxx you can do a backup of the several gigs of data you'll create in /home, right?06:59
Odd-rationalethemime: dpkg -i packagename06:59
symptomErickj92: Im not sure what your issue could be06:59
Odd-rationalethemime: sudo06:59
sphinxxi have another comptuer with a large hard drive (my deksopt which i'm on now)06:59
robm2Gnea: that doesn't load up. I'm connected to ewbmin just fine though.06:59
Erickj92symptom, when i use nmapfe to scan my external IP, no ports are open06:59
symptomErickj92: I would just do an nmap scan andcheck out wireshark06:59
sphinxxand an external06:59
Erickj92but, ports are open on my internal IP06:59
Gnearobm2: is this a personal or production system?06:59
themimehehe yea, already got bitched at by it06:59
nikrudsphinxx then definitely, make it all one big partition06:59
jaffarkelshacSymons, encrypted file system?06:59
symptomErickj92: well those bad boys need tobe open... especailly 8007:00
robm2Gnea: personal07:00
Erickj92symptom, they are open in my router07:00
sphinxxok so i did a 13.8gb partition07:00
sphinxxfor use as i put it as ext3?07:00
Erickj92i just dunno why their now showing open07:00
RolcolHow do I change the system font size on xubuntu?07:00
iositdErickj92, don't bother scanning your external ip, it won't be reachable from your end.07:00
sphinxxmount point /07:00
nikrudsphinxx yes, and set it for formatting07:00
iositdsymptom, ^07:00
nikrudsphinxx and yes again07:00
Erickj92well my computers IP is showing those ports open07:00
symptomyes iositd ?07:00
Gnearobm2: egads, webmin is just... evil! okay, i'll hold back anymore opinions on that... is samba running on the same computer you're on or another host?07:00
iositdsymptom, read the message to Erickj9207:00
sphinxxare any of these mount options important, or just leave at defaults07:01
nikrudsphinxx no, defaults is fine07:01
robm2the computer is right next to me but im connected putty07:01
symptomiositd: oh good call07:01
iositdErickj92, you computer will show them as open. Your router will show them as open. The outgoing traffic can't be routed back at you, it gets lost.07:01
sphinxxreserved blocks is at 5%07:01
Gnearobm2: oh ok, then point your web browser at that system then, giving it 901 as the port number07:01
sphinxxtypical usage - standard07:01
symptomiositd: yea it needs to be bounced07:01
nikrudfine. All you need to change is ext3 , format , and  / as mount point07:01
bazhangFinnish: what is the resolution you want and what is it set to now07:01
Erickj92iositd, what does that mean? i need to do somthing more?07:01
symptomErickj92: sorry i gotta go, good luck07:02
sphinxxwhat is format i dont see that option07:02
Erickj92ok symptom, thank you07:02
iositdErickj92, no, it's something standard. However, scanning yourself with nmap isn't going to show your ports open. I can do it for you and tell you the result.07:02
iositdsymptom, afaik that's fairly though to do.07:02
Erickj92ok, so PM you my external IP?07:02
robm2Gnea: I did, unable to connect. I tried connecting using vnc and and I couldn't load http://localhost:90107:02
Odd-rationalesphinxx: if it is a new partion you may not seee the format option07:02
iositdErickj92, yes. I'll give you the result then.07:03
sphinxxwhat about "bootable flag'07:03
iositdErickj92, wait ...07:03
sphinxxits default is 'off'07:03
nikrudsphinxx probably because it needs formatting already07:03
=== iositd is now known as hischild
Gnearobm2: ok. when you installed swat, did it installed anything else, like openbsd-inetd?07:03
Odd-rationalesphinxx: turn that on07:03
hischildErickj92, there we go. Now you can pm me =)07:03
bazhangsudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg Finnish this command might help too07:03
sphinxxwhen would it be wise to set typical usage to 'largefile' instead of 'standard'07:04
Gnearobm2: btw, what version of ubuntu do you have on there?07:04
robm2Gnea: no it doesn't look like it installed anything else07:04
Finnishbazhang: It is now 1792x1344, and I wan't it to be 1024x76807:04
sphinxxlike if you often transfer large files?07:04
robm2Gnea: was that supposed to be netstat -nap | grep 901  ?07:04
nikrudsphinxx big file is for things like full dvd's, if you have one you won't have much room for anything else07:05
sphinxxah ok07:05
Gnearobm2: yes.07:05
sphinxxso if i had a huge hard drive, i could make multiple partitions, one of them specifically for large files?07:05
nikrudsphinxx exactly07:05
sphinxxah ok07:05
sphinxxand keep reserved blocks at 5%?07:05
earlhey guys. wondering if there's any way to have evolutoin check for mail automatically07:06
earlspecifically, to do so without having evolution open07:06
earlmaybe a notification tray app or something?07:06
Odd-rationaleearl: you can dock it with alltray07:06
Gumbyinstall kontact/kmail and do away with evolution  :)  thats my solution07:06
earlOdd-rationale: eh?07:06

Odd-rationaleearl: search synaptic for alltray07:07
TreyI made some progress07:07
sphinxxok nikrud now i made the swap partition , 1gb07:07
earlwhat does it do...?07:07
sphinxxit has one option, 'bootable flag'07:07
Treyi am not sure if it works completly yet though07:07
sphinxxturn this one off or on?07:07
nikrudgood to go. bootable flag is meaningless to linux07:07
Finnishbazhang: Aargh, that didn\t help07:07
Odd-rationaleearl: it pus the app into the notification area.07:07
sphinxxis there a reason hard drives always leave like 7mb of free space?07:08
sphinxxis that the buffer or something?07:08
Odd-rationaleearl: but yeah. I like kmail better.07:08
sriramomanin ubuntu package management, how do i check the size of the file going to be downloaded for installation?07:08
earlkmail's pretty excellent but does it integrate well with gnome?07:08
bazhangFinnish: how did you install the drivers?07:08
robm2Gnea: when I typed the netstat command, the results were several lines of07:09
robm2unix 3 [ ]  stream connected number    number/something else /07:09
nikrudsphinxx something about making sure partitions start/end on some logical spot I think07:09
Odd-rationalesphinxx: when you set up you last partion (swap) did you set it exactly to 1gb or to max to use the rest of the drive?07:09
sphinxxto 1gb07:09
Finnishbazhang: I guess these are linux drivers07:09
sphinxxwas i suppoed to use max/07:09
sriramomanin ubuntu package management, how do i check the size of the file going to be downloaded for installation?07:09
tarkusi have a question: would you consider linux to be able to accomodate any basic user? some who doesnt know a single line of code?07:10
nikrudsphinxx 7mb wont matter, but you could go back and set it to max07:10
bazhangFinnish: you are using the nv and not the nvidia driver; how was that installed?07:10
alan_msriraman, please be patient :)07:10
Odd-rationalesphinxx: do you still have a "free space" evtry?07:10
sphinxxthanks for the help you 2 especially (you know who you are), im gonna take a shower while this is installing07:10
bazhangsriramoman: check packages.ubuntu.com07:10
Gnearobm2: ignore those, there should be one that says LISTEN on it07:10
FinnishThis was my first ever ubuntu install, I remember that it got sort of automaticallt07:10
FinnishOr I just selected it from the list07:10
sphinxxodd, im already in the setup, not sure, the linux partition was showing no freee space at all, but i remember when setting up windows, it has 7mb i couldnt touch07:10
nikrudsriramoman apt-cache show <packagename> | grep -i size07:11
FinnishThis is Gutsy 7.1007:11
carlzenoxis there a good movie maker for ubuntu?07:11
bazhangFinnish: did you use envy for this?07:11
robm2Gnea: none of them say listen  just lots of stream connected (7 lines)07:11
Gneacarlzenox: i've had some success with kino and avidemux07:11
sphinxxbe back in a bit07:11
Finnishbazhang: No envy07:11
Gneacarlzenox: they are NOT microsoft movie, though :)07:11
Gnearobm2: ok then it didn't start right - do you get any results with this command: dpkg -l | grep ^ii | grep inetd    ?07:12
Odd-rationalecarlzenox: unfortunately, not really. there is cinerella, kino, pitivi, and kdenlive.07:12
bazhangFinnish: well how about using the restricted drivers; the nvidia ones; or you could hand edit your xorg.conf07:12
nikrudsphinxx one thing: be very patient, the installer does not have good feeback07:12
bullgard4What mechanism appends to the name of a process a / and a digit, for example 'migration/0' or 'ata/0'?07:12
sriramomannikrud: is it not possible thru the gui itself?07:12
earlodd-rationale: do you use kmail? how well does it integrate with gnome07:13
Finnishbazhang: I've hand edited xconf before, but with assistant, so I could try it07:13
bazhangsriramoman: look in synaptic package manager sure07:13
Odd-rationaleearl: i use kde anyways :P07:13
nikrudsriramoman hightlight the package, and select properties (in synaptic)07:13
robm2Gnea: -bash: pkg: command not found07:13

owen1i have winxp in a folder and i want to create iso. can i do it?07:14
Odd-rationaleearl: so a real solution would be to switch to kubuntu, ;)07:14
Gnearobm2: ok, give this a shot then: apt-get install xinetd07:14
bazhangearl kde stuff works fine in gnome07:14
earli just switched away from kubuntu07:15
nikrudOdd-rationale I knew there was a method to your nick07:15
robm2Gnea: okay done.07:15
earli prefer kde but i think ubuntu's amenities are better, and unfortunately none of them apply to kubuntu07:15
sriramomannikrud: is the default package manager synaptic? coz that method was not there in default manager...07:15
Gnearobm2: now check it again:   netstat -nap | grep 901 | grep LISTEN07:15
Odd-rationalenikrud: *gasps* you figured out the meaning to my nick ?!07:15
bazhangsriramoman: ubuntu has synaptic kubuntu has adept07:15
nikrudsriramoman ah, you're using add/remove.  close that, and go to  system->admin->synaptic package manager. More powerful, lists many more software packages07:16
Gneabazhang: and they all have apt-get ;)07:16
bazhangtrue ;]07:16
robm2Gnea: I ran netstat -nap | grep 901 | grep LISTEN and didn't get an error or anything but I still can't load the web page07:16

manchicken_sriramoman: I would say that it's fair to say that the Ubuntu repositories in their entirety are at least a TB or two.07:24
manchicken_Though I suspect more than that even.07:24
bazhangnah not that big07:24
Gneadebian's isn't even 1TB07:25
hischildmanchicken_, i doubt that ... how much space do you use, binaries only?07:25
alan_mbazhang, i found pastebinit but cant find cat in the repositories, are you sure thats right? (asking for future reference to users)07:25
manchicken_bazhang: Remember, you're talking Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, from Hoary through Hardy.07:25
Gneamanchicken_: you're also talking about round robin07:25
manchicken_hischild: IIRC the question was how bit the repository is...07:25
manchicken_That would include source debs as well as binary debs.07:26

hischildsphinxx, yes08:10
BlinkizI have two txt files that has changed on two location. Am using unison to sync changes. Problem now is that the file has changed on both sides. unison has a solution for this called "merge". Problem is that after reading the merge manual page, I can't still get it to work. Anyone wanna help me out?08:10
hischildBlinkiz, do you still have the original?08:10
sphinxxi feel so useless not doing anything after installing the OS08:11
hischildsphinxx, USE your OS, instead of spending hours finding everything you need to get it to work.08:11
YashyBlinkiz: is this a one off you can use diff to merge them, or a regular issue with unison?08:11
sphinxxill drink 2 that08:11
sphinxxalthough id like to tweak it for speed since the laptop isnt that great08:11
Yashysphinxx: search "ubuntu kernel tweaks"08:12
hischildsphinxx, windows takes me about 3 hours to get it working with drivers (vista that is, for xp is not possible due to lack of drivers) and then i don't have any programs. Ubuntu takes me 20 min for the install, and 40 min for the updates.08:12
kelvin911i accidently delete emacs(client) from main menu how do i get it back?08:12
hischildYashy, you're suggesting kernel tweaks to a newbie ... don't you think that's a little dangerous?08:13
BlinkizYashy: I think my problem is a combo between diff3 and unison. diff3 wants MYFILE OLDFILE YOURFILE. I do not have oldfile. Just myfile and yourfile.08:13
hischildBlinkiz, diff can merge between files as well, putting all differences together into one file.08:14
Blinkizhischild: Yeah, thats my goal08:14
Blinkizhischild: But diff is launched from unison.08:14
LunksYashy hischild do you know how to integrate nvidia into a custom kernel build?08:15
sphinxxis there a GUI interface for iptables?08:15
hischildBlinkiz, why not use diff yourself? from what i've read on diff, you can do that yourself.08:15
hischildsphinxx, firestarter iirc08:15
BlinkizI think I found a solution to my problem. Its about having backups all the time on old files. http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/771208:15
hischildLunks, no sorry08:15

Yashy./k Janpeter spam08:18
Blinkizhischild: diff3 needs three inputs. MYFILE OLDFILE YOURFILE. Unison is providing MYFILE and YOURFILE by default. Unison is calling diff3 when it notice a change on both sides of the backup. The solution is to configure unison so it keeps old files. That way, OLDFILE will exist08:18
* Yashy does not recommend flash right now08:18
maekYashy, yeah Flash on linux is crap08:19
JanPeterim not spamming08:19
JanPeterits not even my problem....08:19

hischildBlinkiz, i see. Then this might sound stupid: why not just copy it?08:19
Yashymaek: as an app it's been compromised.08:19
Blinkizhischild: Because it's on remote sites. Syncronizing backups over the net08:19
Blinkizhischild: unison is good for this08:20
bullgard4What mechanism appends to the name of a process a / and a digit, for example 'migration/0' or 'ata/0'?08:20
hischildBlinkiz, i got that part. I meant, before you do the diff part, why not throw in a cp oldfile oldfile.bac08:21
Yashybullgard4: text parsers do08:21
Blinkizhischild: Your right. That is the solution. Thing is that that command is integrated into unison. It's called "backup". I just need to understand how it works.08:22
bullgard4Yashy: Tell me why.08:22
hischildBlinkiz, i meant: before you call this backup, unison or whichever program you use, call a cp.08:23

eth01you didn't say it was for "wan" exactly like that. you implied it though.08:57
MistaGeejussi01, playback does work the way it is now08:57
hischildFiliph, that's what you've done when you removed the partitions. You can then type w to write the new partition (in this case, none)08:57
eshaaseeth01: anyways, waht realistic for transfer rates considering i have two systems, two gbit cards and a gbit hub08:57
eth01eshaase: wrapping it up. if your routers/switches and nics support 100/1gbit or whatever, then it'll work - no probs.08:57
eshaaseeth01: well i know it will work, i'm concerned about how fast it will work08:58
Filiphhischild, hmm... it was TO easy!!! cant be... and no format?08:58
eth01eshaase: we can't predict that, and that's being very realistic.08:58
Smegzoryay!  Splashy works! :D08:58
eshaaseeth01: well i was hoping for a ball-park figure, like 25%, 75%, etc.08:59
eshaaseeth01: kinda like how you can't expect ATA 100 to perform at 100MB/s08:59
hischildFiliph, we'll have to write the entire disc with dd once you've created a new partition (which is the formatting)08:59
DistroJockeyeshaase: It would be around the 25% mark08:59
eshaaseeth01: its more like 50% of that08:59
eth01eshaase: not possible08:59

Ignaciusok, then09:41
hischildFiliph, hit enter09:41
kelvin911where they dont have names in common pattern09:41
Filiphhischild, ok09:42
DistroJockeyIgnacius: .04 = April, .10 = October09:42
Ignaciusohhh I know understand :)09:42
zcat[1]kelvin911: for that I would use "ls -1 *.jpg | { x=0 ; while read file ; do mv "$file" image_${x}.jpg ; x= $[ $x + 1 ]; done }09:42
IAMSAMI love the ubuntu versioning process :D09:42
Ignaciusand 8 is year09:42
DistroJockeyme too :)09:42
aguyhow to disguise a promised tor-exit-node?09:42
zcat[1]or something like that09:42
DistroJockeyyup :)09:43
kelvin911simplexio: like 00.jpg  1.jpg  2.jpg  003.jpg  a.jpg   gt.jpg  xx.jpg to aaa01.jpg to aaa07.jpg ?09:43
=== Nettle|office is now known as Nettle
Filiphhischild, now the same but with nr°2?09:43
Ignaciusok, thanks09:43
souperok, here's an apparently simple question: how do i disable the ubuntu splash screen? I like to see what is actually happening during boot.09:43
sidis405hey fellas, is anyone havin issues with ralink drivers on Hardy?09:43
hischildFiliph, yes.09:43
hischildFiliph, and with the third09:43
aguyanyone an idea here?09:43
hischildand with the fourth, give me a call09:43
zcat[1]sidis405: #ubuntu+109:43
IAMSAMsouper, edit /boot/grub/menu.lst09:43
IAMSAMand remove the option for quiet and splash09:43
=== jomino_ is now known as jomino
Filiphhischild, third? for swap also prim?09:44
IAMSAMthe run sudo update-grub09:44
sidis405thank you zcat[1]09:44
IAMSAMaguy, what are you trying to do w. tor-node?09:44
zcat[1]actually haven't tried that card on hardy yet09:44
hischildFiliph, that's possible yes. We're just creating partitions now, whether they are primary or extended does not matter.09:44
Smegzoris it really necessary to run update-grub?  I never have and just editing menu.lst has always worked for me.09:44
IAMSAMhischild, primary should be boot, if you are putting it on a seperate partition09:45
aguyi just want to no if the tor-node is clear - no gov listening to it for eg.09:45
IAMSAMsmegzor, yes, you have to, or the changes don't take effect09:45
simplexiokelvin911: rename s/^/manga/g * -n09:45
zcat[1]Smegzor: no, it's not necessary.. stage 1.5 is filesystem-aware and reads the menu.list09:45
kelvin911simplexio: rename /^/a *.avi doesnt work09:45
DistroJockeyIAMSAM:  souper: update-grub should not be needed09:45
Filiphhischild, http://pastebin.com/m7f86debc09:46
souperIAMSAM, thanks i'll bback09:46
SmegzorIAMSAM: I am living proof that you're wrong :D09:46
souperDistroJockey, thanks as well09:46
simplexiomaybe it nee 's/^/manga/g'09:46
IAMSAMit's recommended after all changes to the grub entries on all sites i've seen09:46
DistroJockeysouper: np09:46
zcat[1]I have NEVER run anything after editing /boot/grub/menu.list09:46
IAMSAMgood to know09:46
IAMSAMi stand corrected :)09:46
zcat[1]GRUB is not LILO09:46
DistroJockeyIAMSAM: but it says "program used to generate the menu.lst"09:46
IAMSAMaguy, you just want to make sure that tor is an anonymous proxy, basically?09:46
hischildFiliph, type p and pastebin the output again please.09:47
kelvin911simplexio: still dont work09:47
hischildIAMSAM, from what i understand it'll just be a root partition, nothing special for the rest.09:47
* DistroJockey agrees with zcat[1]09:47
dibblegoif I want to record the image from a webcam, what is the recommended software?09:47
IAMSAMDistroJockey, hm, idk, when i add the options for data=writeback, the site said to run update-grub09:47
Filiphhischild, http://pastebin.com/d3111540809:47
zcat[1]dibblego: I'd probably use vlc09:47
kelvin911VLC can capture image from webcam?09:48
hischildIAMSAM, if you add them to the default options and not hte kernel line, that's true. When editing the kernel line directly, there's no need.09:48
zcat[1]mind you, I use vlc for far too many things09:48
bertvdphi, can someone tell me how I can give instructions from one tty to another ?09:48
kelvin911what about video capture?09:48
aguybasically, yes09:48
DistroJockeyIAMSAM: *shrugs* just looking at  man update-grub  it shouldn't be needed09:48
zcat[1]vlc can do all kinds of things09:48
IAMSAMhischild, gotcha, thank you for the clerification :)09:48
aguybasicaly yes09:48
bullgard4What mechanism appends to the name of a process a / and a digit, for example 'migration/0' or 'ata/0'?09:48
kelvin911how about capturing the screenshot?09:48
hischildIAMSAM, you're welcome09:48
aguyvery basically....09:48
kelvin911capture the screen for 1 minute and save it as avi?09:48
DistroJockeyhischild: ahh, I see09:48
dibblegozcat[1], does it require some kind of plugin?09:49
zcat[1]kelvin911: for watching things, 'motion' is aewsome..09:49
IAMSAMaguy, yes, tor is set up using anonymous servers, but not all, it's always a good idea to chain our proxies for full coverage09:49
aguyIAMSAM: its just the exit nodes that are a possible leak, i guess09:49
souperworked beautifully thanks very much09:49
hischildFiliph, you already used the second partition. delete the second and third, then do it again please. =)09:49
kelvin911zcat[1]: watching what?09:49
kelvin911zcat[1]: i uses vlc to watch movies and listening to music09:49
zcat[1]dibblego: not sure.. depends on the webcam possibly.. I have bt878 cards and analog cams here.. USB is a bit different I think09:49
kelvin911zcat[1]: only mplayer for realplayer09:50
Viper111guys my Ubuntu 6.06 LTS server is shutdowning down every time after about 2 hours of starting, any body can advice09:50
hischildFiliph, and be sure to only use a partition number once.09:50
IAMSAMDistroJunkie, have you used hard drive encryption on your / partition at all?09:50
zcat[1]sorry.. for monitoring/security of the webcam, motion is cool..09:50
sphinxxcan i have gnome and xfce running simultaneously09:50
hischildalso a general question: usually a disc can only have 4 primary partitions. His fdisk tells him he can use 8 primary partitions. Is there a reason as to why?09:50
IAMSAMViper111, can you get to your system logs?09:50
DistroJockeyIAMSAM: DistroJunkie hehe I like that name too ;)09:50
Filiphhischild, yes I did... eh how to delete? :-p :-S09:50
sphinxxlike so i can switch between them in the bottom right09:50
DistroJockeyIAMSAM: nope09:50
aguyIAMSAM couldn't one determine HIS own exit-node and test it somehow?09:50
IAMSAMDistroJockey, sry =/09:50
DistroJockeyIAMSAM: np :)09:51
Filiphhischild, ok it's good09:51
IAMSAMaguy, i'm not sure, that's best for googling =/09:51
hischildFiliph, for the 4th primary partition, instead of primary, make it extended and make it cover the free space that is left.09:51
aguyof course... i did a little already, wanted to give reading a break09:51
sphinxxi went to do this command and it said 'this aptitude does not have super cow powers"09:51
IAMSAMDistroJockey, i've noticed tremendous lag in read write, causing horrendous system lags... I reccomend against it :p09:51
aguysee you09:51
sphinxxsudo aptitude install xubuntu-desktop09:51
DistroJockeyIAMSAM: yeah, doesn't sound like a good idea09:52
hischildsphinxx, you've probably made a type with install. Try it again.09:52
zcat[1]aptitude doesn't have super-cow powers .. only apt does09:52
hischildzcat[1], orly?09:52
souperwhat about portege?09:52
Filiphhischild,  why 4th? I want only 2 boot partitions..; or is that not what I think?09:52
* souper stands corrected09:52
zcat[1]hischild: you know one that does?09:52
hischildzcat[1], not really09:52
IAMSAMDistroJockey, yeah, today's project will be a full reinstall of Hardy. btw, do you know when or if Hardy will ever get the mondo package to be installable?09:52
hischildFiliph, the 2 boot partitions (your root and the windows c:) should be primary partitions. The rest does not matter. In the extended partition we're going to create some more partitions.09:53
zcat[1]zcat@mandela:~$ aptitude moo09:53
zcat[1]There are no Easter Eggs in this program.09:53
hischildIAMSAM, you're going to install hardy? good luck :-) works like a charm here09:53
DistroJockeyIAMSAM: I may take a look at that package though as I am running Hardy atm. What's it for?09:54
souperWhat is the best method to upgrade from i386 gutsy to x64_32 hardy?09:54
juzzy_lol i don't think you can souper09:54
IAMSAMhischild, i've been using it since it came out as alpha, only downside is i used twofish hard drive encryption, and it slowed the system down too much, so I will be reinstalling when I get out of here09:54
souperit's possible09:54
juzzy_format? :P09:54
souperwell that would be my fallback09:54
hischildIAMSAM, i see. I really like it (just broke it a couple dozen times)09:54
Filiphhischild, is that good? http://pastebin.com/d4e71848b09:55
hischildsouper, from what i understand, the differences are much to large to be able to upgrade in the way you want to.09:55
juzzy_I'm just trying to fix my mythbuntu install, went from 7.10 to 8.04 and now it won't boot09:55
hischildFiliph, if you type p i can understand what you did =)09:55
IAMSAMDistroJockey, it allows you to take basically an image of your computer in it's current state, and if (God forbid) your system dies, you can use that disk to nuke the partitions and set it up again just like it was, w. out the need to install individual packages again09:55
IAMSAMit's nice09:55
souperwell will the configurations stored in my home partition still hold true?09:55
IAMSAMhischild, yeah my sound broke after ubuntustudio-audio was installed, i learned to stay away from that for a while :p09:56
hischildIAMSAM, haha ... i understand then yh ...09:56
souperbecause i suppose that's really only what's important09:56
hischildIAMSAM, though i am very pleased with the current state of fluxbox with hardy09:56
IAMSAMjussy_ any error messages on boot?09:56
Filiphhischild, http://pastebin.com/d52fcd30209:56
DistroJockeyIAMSAM: ahh, cool09:56
juzzy_IAMSAM, none09:57
IAMSAMhischild, orly? i may have to look into it... xfce is going downhill :(09:57
juzzy_IAMSAM, it goes to the boot screen (mythbuntu logo) and then drops out 2mins later09:57
juzzy_IAMSAM, then it comes to a screen with Busybox 1.1.3 on it saying initramfs09:57
juzzy_Then eventually just blanks out like 10mins later09:57
DistroJockeyIAMSAM: You may like to check out remastersys also then09:57
hischildIAMSAM, i use conky (i know...) for monitoring stuff, along with wmbattery and nm-applet ... i'm still editing the conky thing though, not happy with it yet09:57
DistroJockeyIAMSAM: does the same, but makes a live CD09:58
IAMSAMjuzzy_ when the system starts, hit esc to get to the grub menu, edit the kernel line in the first entry so it does not have the splash and quiet options, then you should have an error09:58
hischildFiliph, copy the entire screen, including the next prompt please.09:58
juzzy_IAMSAM, ta09:58
hischildFiliph, i don't mind reading through a bit of text to find what i'm looking for =)09:58
IAMSAMDIstroJockey, yeah, i've heard of that, but basically modo doesn't give you the live cd, it's just a back up tool :) it allows the fixing of individual files, or to nuke your entire system, and replace it w. the copy you made09:59
Viper111IAMSAM yes i can get09:59
DistroJockeyIAMSAM: fair enough09:59
hischildIAMSAM, can i also not backup certain folders? (i got about 40gb of video files i don't need backed up again)09:59
FinnishHow do I make a backup-copy of xconf?09:59
IAMSAMViper111, check to see what is happening right before the system shuts down, there should be an entry in the logs to help us out a little10:00
DistroJockeyFinnish: sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup10:00
IAMSAMhischild, yeah, mondo is curses based and allows for excusion of file types and entire directories :)10:00
Viper111IAMSAM which log file i'l see10:00
IAMSAMDistroJockey, I'm going to check out remastersys though, so I can get a copy of Ubuntu for my neighbors to use10:01
hischildIAMSAM, then it just sounds awesome. Usable from a running system i assume? because now it is starting to sound very interesting.10:01
FinnishDistroJockey: And for the future, how do I bring it when i need it?10:01
Filiphhischild, ok terminal copied... ;-) http://pastebin.com/m43380db10:01
IAMSAMViper111, check the syslog10:01
