ChaosTheorykeit1: I'm "completely removing" Firefox through Synpatic.00:02
Jordan_Uurthmover, I have a core duo and everything except suspend and Compiz worked with Gutsy, in Hardy Compiz is working with the new ATI drivers but if you have an Nvidia card compiz will probably work with Gutsy.00:02
billycope57: okee dokee00:02
keit1ChaosTheory: the video may use h264, have you enabled restricted & multiverse in software sources?00:02
orudiehow can i remove a user ?00:02
linkinxpUnSuNgLoSeR:  im not sure then :( sorry00:02
macdco0lingFir3, if you have more than one box to use with it, you can run its transcoder in cluster mode, it really speeds through a bunch of dvd's that way00:02
LjLorudie: man deluser00:03

urthmoverJordan_U I think I have a nvidia how do I check what video device I have?  is there a command line util?00:03
macdco0lingFir3, yes, it can, since its just a fancy gui frontend for a command line program called transcode.00:04
keit1ChaosTheory: look I gotta go to watch shameless! but w/e you do don't remove firefox completely you're gonna make more work for yourself00:04
unopLjL, maybe you know why a useradd command doesnt have any effect for xs142 ..00:04

knifepointI realise they're not part of ubuntu but does anyone know why when i upgraded last night i lost the resolution 1680 x 1050 on my nvidia drivers00:05
billynot the pastebin thingy00:05
Jordan_Uurthmover, lspci, lshw, or System -> Preferences -> Devices00:05
LjLunop, xs142: try just "adduser $USER admin"00:05
* ChaosTheory cries. 00:05
linkinxpUnSuNgLoSeR:   not really lol00:05
macdknifepoint, chances are your not running the nvidia drivers anymore00:05
billycope57: bash: /etc/apt/sources.list: Permission denied00:05
co0lingFir3macd: wow that sounds fantastic00:05
Jordan_Uknifepoint, How had you installed the drivers?00:05
billywhen i do the first thing in your tutorial00:05
xs142LjL, "adduser: Only root may add a user or group to the system."00:05
macdco0lingFir3, yes, it is nice, I usually rip about 20 to the harddrive (stright vobs) then let dvdrip transcode them in a cluster queue00:06
knifepointcomplete removal and re installation and they're definitely running00:06
unopxs142, prepend that command with sudo00:06
LjLxs142: yes you certainly need to be root. are you in recovery mode already?00:06
EnderBlack_when kernels get updated they usually blow out propiertary video drivers00:06
LjLunop, if he isn't in "admin", he isn't going to be able to sudo :)00:06
macdknifepoint, well, once you bust out envy, I dont know what to tell you, other than remove it, and use the ubuntu packaged nvidia restricted driver.00:06
Jordan_Uknifepoint, Did the built in restricted-manager not work?00:06
unopLjL, yea, but he was able to sudo before thats what's entirely strange about this :)00:06

LjLunop_: sudo should fail, since he's not in admin, but for some reason is doing so silently00:25
Cope57sorry, ChaosTheory getting lost in the flood. ;)00:25
unop_LjL, thats what i thought but hmm, this is very strange00:25
orudiei'm not allowed to ask silly questions in there00:25
macdne78, was that the conflict causing xmms to be removed?00:25
roffe__I can't remember where I downloaded it from, but I followed someones mini-guide00:25
ChaosTheoryCope57: Oh, okay. =D00:25
ne78macd: yes00:25
linkinxpanybody please how i change my cursors?00:25
amenadokazol_-> what exactly is the bug? and what did you do to fix it?00:26
Someone7I can't stop Ubuntu from wanting to load Compiz instead of Metacity. I've searched the forums, there apparently is a huge problem with this, but no permanent solution.00:26
unop_roffe__, maybe you need to do this .. chmod +x ~/armyops/armyops; ~/armyops/armyops00:26
Someone7I have to type "metacity &" after every login to get my menu bar.00:26
LjLunop_: well, i'm not going to suddenly remove myself from admin with the system running, but i wouldn't be too surprised if that cause sudo to fail silently. then of course, we don't know why he'd have been removed from admin to begin with00:26
Cope57roffe__: type in terminal armyops00:26
ne78macd: i hope someone will put an unoffcial xmms1 repository as i need it badly, it's the only software able to deal with my very huge sample and mp3 collection00:26
macdSomeone7, after you do that, goto system --> prefs --> session, and remove the compiz and make sure save current session is checked, your change should be perm then00:27
roffe__cope it says command not found00:27
UnSuNgLoSeRhow do i run mp3 songs on ubuntu?00:27
LjLdimitree: install the package libstdc++500:27
unop_roffe__, maybe you need to do this .. chmod +x ~/armyops/armyops; ~/armyops/armyops00:27
LjL!mp3 > UnSuNgLoSeR    (UnSuNgLoSeR, see the private message from Ubotu)00:27
Cope57roffe__: try sudo armyops00:27
linkinxpUnSuNgLoSeR:  just click it and it will install the codecs00:27
macdne78, ever tried amarok? it uses a sql backend, I have ~550gb of mp3, and it works well00:27
Someone7There is no Compiz there, macd.00:27
dimitreeLjL thank you :)00:27
macdSomeone7, then add the metacity command to the startup tab, and it shall be done00:28
roffe__unop... it didn't work :(00:28
Someone7That didn't work.00:28
Someone7I already tried it.00:28
roffe__cope it said command not found again00:28
Cope57UnSuNgLoSeR: install the lame plug-in00:28
unop_roffe__, what is the full pathname of that file?00:28
Someone7I also tried messing with the gconftool-2 and it doesn't work.00:28
macdSomeone7, do you have some 3rd party piece of software installed like the compiz tray icon?00:28
Someone7It keeps telling me compiz is my default manager.00:28
UnSuNgLoSeRlinkinxp tried it mate!no use!i connected via lan to the internet!didnt work!something's wrong with my copy of ubuntu!:(00:28
unop_LjL, that could make sense, but sudo should really fail if groups doesnt report you to be a member of admin00:28
ne78macd: i tried everything else, i have more and i want the playlist to be a flat list of full pathnames00:29
Someone7Not that I know of, though I'm not sure. This computer came with Enlightenment/Compiz on it, and I thought I got rid of it all.00:29
linkinxpUnSuNgLoSeR:  uff it didnt ask for codecs?00:29
unop_roffe__, what happens when you type just this then?  /home/roffe/armyops/armyops00:29

unop_xs142, nice.. you had a very strange problem there but glad it's fixed now00:31
roffe__unop it's installing something from the ubuntu cd now00:31

tobberothIn Ubuntu you can switch CLI interfaces with Alt+FX, right? Well, when I'm running mplayer-nogui in one, i can't use the Alt+FX commandoes... is there any workaround?00:36

ludditehello friend- how are you?00:37

unop_roffe__, if everything is working now, you should be ok.00:37
LjLUnSuNgLoSeR, should check /etc/apt/sources.list, but you really should reboot into ubuntu and come back here from there, so that we can give you commands to type and check output00:37

Dr_willisbilly,  That sounds liek windows firewall getting in the way01:41

bluefox|gaminghere is a readable version[aha! i figured it out XP] >http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/61872/01:42
billydr_willis: wut port is file sharing on?01:42
Dr_willisbilly,  you may want to try the fusesmb tool also. (google for the 'ubuntu fusesmb wiki' page)01:42
Dr_willisbilly,  no idea really. i alwys disable windows firewall totally.01:42
frederichello all. is there someone that could help me ... I cut / paste a directory from my Destop to another place. paste didn't work and it seems my data are lost. How may I recover them ? thanks !01:42
Nithsarah____: np01:42
orudieNith: you think you can help me?01:43
billyDr_willis: still no luck after turning off the firewall01:43
Dr_willisbilly,  give it some time.. windows has some delay when setting some of the samba stuff. also checkout that fusesmb wiki page. its a handy way to get to the windows shares.01:43
billycool cool, thanks dr_willis01:44

Dr_willisfrederic,  use the shell, look where the stuff used to be?01:45
Nithorudie: its advising you put the ip and subnet in a particular form, but I dunno the context01:45
Dr_willisfrederic,  or where they are supposed to be. Ive never heard of cut/pasteing loseing info befor.01:45
bluefox|gamingso has anyone else had any luck at all booting ubuntu over a scsi drive?01:46

fredericmy lost dir supposed to be there /home/frederic/Desktop/LOSTDIR01:46
bluefox|gamingcause it just hangs on me ...01:46

MeatGrinderI just installed ubuntu on an not so old machine (Athlon XP1900+) but seem to be having performance issues. For instance, viewing YouTube vids in FF eats 100% of CPU cycles. Also, playing Gnometris maxing out the CPU to the point of it greying out. Is this common?01:48

billymarksys: you need to get samba before itll work right02:06

NithZiggyFish_laptop: while its hanging, hit CTRL+ALT+F1 then log in and "sudo killall compiz.real"02:06
markysbilly: yes, probably02:06
billymarksys: do you have samba?02:06
NithZiggyFish_laptop: then hit CTRL+ALT+F7 and see if it's unhung, if so you need to disable compiz, if not, then compiz is not the problem02:07

unop_markys, you sure that was a cross over cable you used?02:24

bobbo85Hi all, does anyone know how to uninstall a program that was installed using ./configure and make install?  I deleted the source folder, so I don't know if the make uninstall command still works anywhere...02:24
ChaosTheoryatlef: It says "NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (latest cards)" is in use.02:24
bts3685frederic: sure you have write perms in the directorys you're cutting from AND pasting to?02:24
LaptopFamatlef: i burn and iso cd02:25
atlefChaosTheory: do you have nvidia-settings installed? that will most likely make your settings permanent02:26
Paddy_EIREfrederic: normally an undo move right click entry would appear on the last thing you cut if that helps.. try right clicking the desktop and seeing if its there02:26
ChaosTheoryatlef: How do I install that?02:26
atlefLaptopFam: as in burn image, yes02:26
ader10emma: oh, another thing... You may or may not know this. When you run a command at the console, if you put a "&" at the end, it will be "forked" to the background and you can continue using the same console. Example: firefox& (It will start firefox, but instead of not giving you a command prompt until you close firefox, it will give you one right away)02:26
unop_frederic, if you remember a part of the filenames, have you tried using find ?  find $HOME -iname "*keyword*"02:26
unop_frederic, or even better,  find / -iname "*keyword*"02:26
unop_bobbo, download the source again, ./configure (and whatever else is required by README/INSTALL), make .. make uninstall02:26

kindofabuzzkelvin911: did you try crtl alt backspace?04:12
coldbootMeatGrinder: You could try downloading Opera and see if flash still goes slow, then you can rule out firefox.04:12
kindofabuzzjust resets your gdm04:13

MeatGrindercoldboot, installed opera flash doesnt play, says to click to activate but I do and nothing04:15
nikrudicesword ah, that explains it.04:15
kindofabuzzSteven1: well that's where your vid card comes in play too04:15
coldbootMeatGrinder: At this point I don't know any more than you do about what to fix. I would just search for "flash 100% cpu linux OR ubuntu" in google without the quotes and keep going through the shit.04:15
kelvin911is 2nd life half life?04:15
jourdanand the *awesome* linux drivers no doubt available for it04:15
MeatGrindercoldboot, affirmative04:15
kindofabuzzkelvin911: no04:15
coldbootMeatGrinder: That doesn't mean anything, it usually never works in Opera to start.04:15
Steven1kindofabuzz: Well my vid card is pretty good. Maybe the drivers just suck.04:15
MeatGrindercoldboot, yeah opera's not offering any info04:16
coldbootMeatGrinder: Don't stay up all night, this is going to be very boring and unrewarding.04:16
kindofabuzzSteven1 do you at least have restricted drives on?04:16

hobbzillahow can I find out what version of a package I have installed?04:16
MeatGrindercoldboot, I know, I should be working important stuff like getting my CAC card working04:16

Once it's there, you should be able to open up a terminal shell and try to mount the partitions to see what's left on them.04:47

LainIwakuraHello, can someone explain to me why this error occurred: W: Duplicate sources.list entry http://archive.ubuntu.com gutsy/universe Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_gutsy_universe_binary-i386_Packages) I fixed with apt-get update, but I'd like to know why the error occurred. I had no duplicate entries in /etc/apt/sources.list. What is this /var/lib/... list and how does it relate to my repository source list in /etc/a04:51
TheOneAndOnlywittyphotons: i would recommend to update the fstab with that mount point :)04:51
Kl4mDex-Freudii: you can build your floppy then copy it to some file with dd04:52
TheOneAndOnlyChaosTheory: it's not working at all?04:52
youmeanc-ron, so your point is his hdb 's partition table is damaged?or the problem is?04:52
Dex-FreudiiKl4m: how do I build my floppy??04:52
FlannelLainIwakura: check out /etc/apt/sources.list.d/04:52
stbainelexhobby: nevermind, I see it on your forum post (7.10)04:52
Dex-FreudiiKl4m: I don't have floppy drive in my computer04:52
freakout396so...i dled the installer...and when I run it my screen goes blank...it sounds like something is running though...any thoughts?04:52
stbainc-ron: if he can boot into the 7.10 livecd, he'll be able to fire up GPartEd to assess the damage04:52
LainIwakuraFlannel: It's an empty directory at the moment.04:53
ChaosTheoryTheOneAndOnly: Nope.04:53
FlannelLainIwakura: So, you 'fixed' it by not changing anything?04:53
youmeanstbain, what about testdisk or parted?04:53
LainIwakuraFlannel: I did apt-get update, which fixed the error.04:53
LainIwakuraFlannel: But do you know why the error may have occurred in the first place?04:54
TheOneAndOnlyChaosTheory: can you run alsamixer in a terminal?04:54
FlannelLainIwakura: That shouldn't have fixed anything.  The error would've occured during that same operation.04:54
stbainyoumean: gparted is just a GUI over top of parted (if memory serves me correctly)04:54
ChaosTheoryTheOneAndOnly: I just ran it. What now?04:54
TheOneAndOnlyjpastore: any time :)04:54
Kl4mDex-Freudii: ok, find out how many bytes a typical floppy uses, then dd if=/dev/zero of=myfile.img bs=howmanybytes count=104:54
fredmvI've got a question (might be somewhat irrelevant).04:54
TheOneAndOnlycheck to make sure the volume on all the channels are up. if they aren't, use the up arrow to move them up, the left and right arrows to move between them.04:55
stbainKl4m: bs=1440 (pretty sure on that one)04:55
fredmvOn Xfce4.4, why in the hell is there a tiny Gnome foot on the top-right corner of Thunar windows?04:55

youmeanstbain, tha is not important,seems you and c-ron ;s point is he has to rebuild partition table04:55
Dex-FreudiiKl4m: but how do I create the filesystem then?04:55
chico__any of you have verizon fios and have successfully set up a server? (httpd, ftpd, etc.)04:55
stbainyoumean: possibly, but I think just getting in and seeing what's left will help clarify the next step04:55
TheOneAndOnlyChaosTheory: can you also hit the tab key and make sure they are all up on other screens, and there are none w. no m's next to them?04:55
Kl4mDex-Freudii: mkfs.vfat myfile.img04:55
c-ronlooks like it's possible to rebuild with gpart and fdisk04:56
LainIwakuraFlannel: Yeah, that is odd.. but I did run apt-get update, get the error (which also told me to 'run apt-get update to correct these problems), which I did and which fixed the problem... Any ideas?04:56
c-ronnot gparted - gpart .. in case anyone's wondering04:56
EruditeHermitis there a way to have multi_key mapped to the windows key?04:56
Kl4mDex-Freudii: then you mount it with mount, but I don't know the options or if you need to be a superuser04:56
TheOneAndOnlyLainIwakura: that will occur sometimes if the repos are cached on the system, running the update again usually corrects the problem04:57
ChaosTheoryTheOneAndOnly: All of them, even after tabbing, are up.04:57
TheOneAndOnlyLainIwakura: assuming you do not actually have a duplicate source :p04:57
LainIwakuraTheOneAndOnly: Yup, double checked that.04:57
LainIwakuraTheOneAndOnly: Alright, thanks.04:57
youmeanc-ron, then he can download gpart and try04:57

TheOneAndOnlyChaosTheory: open the terminal, type in alsaconf05:29
TheOneAndOnlyAwp: are you using kde, gnome, xfce? ie- ubuntu, kubuntu, or xubuntu, or some other window manager?05:29
j3kyl1does anyone know how to mount a HD that is logged "in use" ? force mounting hasn't workedd.05:30
ChaosTheoryTheOneAndOnly: bash: alsaconf: command not found05:30
TheOneAndOnlyAwp: or do you have and are currently using compiz?05:30
rshivessn00zer I just started using dvorak. so Im still learning it.05:30
* ubuntufanboy needs help with java on hardy 6405:30
AwpTheOneAndOnly ya its 7.10 should have compiz already install05:30
stbainj3kyl1: is it mounted elsewhere?05:30
j3kyl1stbain : no its just local05:31
AwpTheOneAndOnly it just default 7.10 updated05:31
stbainj3kyl1: what drive is it?05:31
stbainj3kyl1: /dev/???05:31
VeN0mizeryou mean, even with root, a rootkit has difficulty pulling off its magic?05:31
VeN0mizerwith linux?05:31
d0lphin_n0elwhat is the bether and secure linux music player to streamers radios and this stuff? :x05:32
sn00zerrshives, i just set mine up tonight and started learning home row but i'm already getting confused and wondered if it wouldn't kill my qwerty skills by confusing me and then once i am better at dvorak, would i lose my speed/accuracy on qwerty since i stop using it05:32
AwpTheOneAndOnly what next?05:32
stbainubuntufanboy: /join #ubuntu+1 for hardy help05:32
ubuntufanboytks stbain05:32
TheOneAndOnlyAwp: if it's a default gutsy, i don't believe it will have compiz, if you can use compiz and xgl (lots of info on the net to get it running on gutsy assuming your video card is supported) there is functionality in there to have the windows tile or cascade... let me see if metacity has it as well :)05:32
j3kyl1stbain : its /dev/sda105:32
stbainj3kyl1: and typing /mount and df -h commands don't show /dev/sda1 listed anywhere?05:33
rshivessn00zer according to their website. you wont.05:33
TheOneAndOnlyVeN0mizer: yep, even as root. I was reading an article about one of the kernels where they had to set up a lab just to get a virus to work. ie - unless you srsly mess up you should be safe :)05:33
d0lphin_n0elwhat music multimedia player do you guys ussually use?!05:33
stbainj3kyl1: err... not /mount, just "mount"05:33
j3kyl1stbain : no ... the problem i believe is that it has a "in use" log on it and won't open back up05:33
stbainj3kyl1: how about umount /dev/sda1 just for giggles?05:34
sn00zerrshives, ok, thats good to know05:34
TheOneAndOnlyChaosTheory: wanted to make sure you knew i haven't forgotten about you ;p05:34
VeN0mizerTheOneAndOnly: Oh good, I often find myself easily typing in the root password when installing stuff in linux, and sometimes when running programs that shouldn't require but I don't know any better to trust them anyways...tracert for example!05:34
ChaosTheoryTheOneAndOnly: Thanks. =]05:34
c-ronelexhobby7: are you able to see the contents of your home dir with ls ~/05:35
noobi TheOneAndOnly05:35
j3kyl1stbain :/dev/sda1 is not mounted (according to mtab)05:35
noobiThank you05:35
noobigksu xkill worked05:35
TheOneAndOnlyChaosTheory: np, i know how frustrating it can get waiting for an answer, esp if the person helping you is talking to like 4 other ppl :p05:35
kelvin911i was playing world of padman, and i lost my mouse and keyboard, then i try Ctrl-Alt Backspace someone suggest and my ubuntu is restarted05:35
ChaosTheoryTheOneAndOnly: I'm just glad someone is helping me. =D05:35
ChaosTheoryTheOneAndOnly: I'm searching around, too.05:35
kelvin911world of padman's problem or ubuntu?05:35
TheOneAndOnlyVeN0mizer: hm, i would recommend avoiding root usage as much as possible :p if you get prompted for the pw, ctrl+c to abort :p05:36
rshiveshmmm my real name is purple?05:36
TheOneAndOnlyChaosTheory: awesome, i appreciate you helping me, help you, makes things go smooth =]05:36
TheOneAndOnlyrshives: go pidgin ;p05:36
elexhobby7c-ron: yes05:36
j3kyl1stbain :/dev/sda1 is not mounted (according to mtab)05:36
AlexHooverGrrrr. Why do .cgi scripts keep giving me a forbidden error?05:36
VeN0mizerTheOneAndOnly: That's the thing...how am I to know what programs _should_ need it or not...I never would have thought tracert would need it...does it use raw sockets or something?05:37
stbainj3kyl1: not sure05:37
c-ronelexhobby7 well the good new is that your partition table should be fine.05:37
q_a_z_steveWhy can't I use my external DVD burner, with a Gutsy-live in another drive?05:37
q_a_z_steveread-only won't change!!!05:37
stbainj3kyl1: what type of partition is it?05:38
j3kyl1stbain : it was previously used with vista... i'm on my primary now... which is ubuntu05:38
elexhobby7c-ron: thats such a great relief.. tks :).. so shud i run fdisk or gpart now?05:38
TheOneAndOnlyVeN0mizer: if you get an error about pipes, or permissions, you can bet you'll need root, otherwise, try and stay normal... most packet programs like tracert, will need root, hping for example.05:38
mib_q40htm8ysomeone can help me with instalation ?05:38
tonyyarussoq_a_z_steve: probably because things buffer before burning, and you don't have enough ram for that.05:38
themimehow do i partition my disk via command line05:38
c-ronelexhobby7: do this first, unmount /dev/hdb305:38
VeN0mizeralrighty :) thanks for answering all my noob questions ;)05:38
TheOneAndOnlymib_q40htm8y: what version of ubuntu? i'm sure someone in here can help :)05:38
kelvin911when i remove a program in add/remove does it completely remove the software?  or do i need to go to synaptic to completely remove it fom my HD?05:39
TheOneAndOnlyVeN0mizer: heh, not so newb, and we've all been there before... a little google searching can turn up tons of info about linux though :D05:39
themimekelvin911: yes, synaptic05:39
TheOneAndOnlykelvin911: synaptic05:39
kelvin911so add/remove is not good for remove prgram?05:39
VeN0mizerToo much info it seems :-D05:39
TheOneAndOnlythe add/remove will leave config files05:39
elexhobby7c-ron: ok did that..05:39
q_a_z_stevetonyyarusso: I see your point, but I do have 2GB of RAM... first issue is Why won't they allow live-user, (don't know how to get root to change this) to change from being read-only05:39
rshivesTheOneAndOnly Change it in pidgon?05:40
tonyyarussoq_a_z_steve: change what?  what are you talking about?05:40
ChaosTheoryTheOneAndOnly: I don't have an alsaconf. Is that a problem? What should I do?05:40
j3kyl1stbain : it was previously used with vista... i'm on my primary now... which is ubuntu05:40
TheOneAndOnlyrshives: you are using pidgin right now, correct?05:40
kelvin911what if i install world of padman with *.run file?05:40
stbainj3kyl1: what command are you using to mount it?05:40
q_a_z_stevetonyyarusso: I don't want it to be read only, obviously, I want to burn...05:40
kelvin911do i uninstall it in synaptic?05:40
TheOneAndOnlyChaosTheory: i'm missing it as well, and the package isn't in there, but i'm searching to see if there's a way to get it installed :)05:40
mib_q40htm8yTheOneAndOnly : 7.1005:40
elexhobby7c-ron: can i chat from the ubuntu comp itself? or u wud still recommend chatting from the other windows comp?05:40
ChaosTheoryTheOneAndOnly: Okay, thanks.05:41
j3kyl1stbain : uhh... well just mount /dev/sda1 or mount /media/Windows Vista05:41
q_a_z_stevekelvin911: yeah, mark for Complete removal05:41
stbainj3kyl1: what's the fstab line for /dev/sda1 look like?05:41
kelvin911world of padman is piece of crap05:41
TheOneAndOnlykelvin911: if you want to stick to terminal you can use sudo apt-get --purge remove package to remove :)05:42
j3kyl1stbain : that way has worked before... but now vista is dead and im just gonna put ubuntu on it after i back it up.. so i need to get it there05:42
kelvin911i dont know why some people say its fun , maybe it works fine in windows05:42
Awpkelvin911 play call of duty 405:42
j3kyl1 stbain: hold on ill look05:42
kelvin911i dont have cod405:42

elexhobby7c-ron: haha, installed in 2 mins back05:44
TheOneAndOnlymib_q40htm8y: you need assistance w. an install correct?05:44
q_a_z_stevetonyyarusso: I'm not allowed to change it, you know? I'm trying to think, I believe I've used this method before, should be fine... but if I mount it read-only (gee, I guess I could unmount, then remount as 777), then I can't even dd to it...05:44
j3kyl1stbain : nothings coming up with what you gave me ... its a command line right?05:44

j3kyl1stbain: http://paste.stgraber.org/220505:52
TheOneAndOnlyChaosTheory: before we try that, are you on the same box that's having the sound issue, or is it a different box?05:53
kraftok, and general hints about s-video?05:53
stbainj3kyl1: doesn't look like it's mounted05:53
ChaosTheoryTheOneAndOnly: Same computer.05:53
stbainj3kyl1: cd .. and try that mount command again05:53
ChaosTheoryTheOneAndOnly: It's a laptop.05:53
j3kyl1stbain : change to what dir?05:53
TheOneAndOnlyChaosTheory: see if your sound has returned... if not, i'd recommend running the command it said, as sudo of course, and then restart the box...05:53
q_a_z_stevek, well I'll help with install where I can, for the next few minutes, especially if you can help with my issue at all. Shed some light on it: I booted into Gutsy-live and had an external DVD burner auto mounted, readonly, and I couldn't change it!05:54
berbsAny "mutt" users here?05:54
VeN0mizerTheOneAndOnly: about rootkits...people can write drivers for windows that patch kernel memory locations to manipulate kernel structures...etc...is the same thing not possible in linux? does the linux kernel protect itself somehow?05:54
c-ronelexhobby7: whoops.. typo rerun that command as: sudo fdisk -l /dev/hdb >> ~/Desktop/fdiskinfo.txt05:54
TheOneAndOnlyq_a_z_steve: if he has the livecd, you can install grub from there :)05:54
stbainj3kyl1: type type "cd" and it will drop you back in your homedir, then you can try the mount -t ntfs -o ro /dev/sda1 /tmp/test05:54
ChaosTheoryTheOneAndOnly: There is no sound. =(05:54
ChaosTheoryTheOneAndOnly: How do I do the command?05:54
ChaosTheoryTheOneAndOnly: Or should I just restart right now?05:55
q_a_z_steveTheOneAndOnly: yeah... should be able... did you see my issue just there, too?05:55
TheOneAndOnlyChaosTheory: at least we are eliminating possible causes =] keep positive, we'll get it working again eventually. btw, did it stop working after an update?05:55
c-ronelexhobby4: hi05:55
TheOneAndOnlyq_a_z_steve: i did not, what is your issu, sorry...05:55
ChaosTheoryTheOneAndOnly: No, each time it was completely random (or so it seemed).05:56
ChaosTheoryTheOneAndOnly: I was listening to some stuff and it just stopped.05:56
q_a_z_steveChaosTheory: redo your modconf05:56
ChaosTheoryq_a_z_steve: How?05:56
q_a_z_steveif you have no other issues with install, reboot should do it... I think...05:57
q_a_z_stevebut explore manually doing it first, not my area, sorry.05:57
TheOneAndOnlyChaosTheory:  before you restart, run asoundconf05:57
q_a_z_steveChaosTheory: perhaps modprobe is a better suggestion.05:57
c-ronelexhobby4: rerun that command as: sudo fdisk -l /dev/hdb >> ~/Desktop/fdiskinfo.txt05:57

TheOneAndOnlyq_a_z_steve berbs if it's a word document, abiword can read them (normally)06:00

rpclancyCould someone give a complete linux noob some assistance?06:20
kelvin911TheOneAndOnly: cant find broken package06:20
Scunizisriramoman, what are you trying to install?06:20
ubotuRPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous)06:20
kelvin911i shouldnt update it in the first place...... :(06:20
sriramomani c06:20
q_a_z_steve!rpm > sriramoman06:20
Scunizisriramoman, I think virtualbox is in the repos.. if you try with an rpm thing will probably break06:20
rshivesSweet, got Skype working.06:21
rpclancyIm having so much trouble getting linux to work on this system06:21
Scunizi!virtualbox | sriramoman06:21
ubotusriramoman: virtualbox is a x86 !virtualizer. A !free edition is available in !Gutsy as 'virtualbox-ose'. A non-free edition is available at http://virtualbox.org for most Ubuntu releases (help in #vbox) - Setup details at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VirtualBox06:21
elexhobbyc-ron: did u get my last message?06:21
TheOneAndOnlysriramoman: you can use alien to convert the rpm to a deb06:21
rpclancyIs there someone here who is really familiar with installing linux?06:21
sriramomanbut will it break my package system?06:21
ScuniziTheOneAndOnly, see ubotu post above.. you too sriramoman06:22
TheOneAndOnlysriramoman: the debs for virtualbox are on their site though, and for gutsy/hardy, it should be in the repo, as stated06:22
kelvin911TheOneAndOnly: http://img155.imageshack.us/my.php?image=screenshotyw8.png what should i do ?06:22

TheOneAndOnlyScunizi, i was just stating you COULD use the alien pkg to convert rpms to debs, i wouldn't for vbox though ;]06:23
sriramomani know that it is available in repo, but i already have an rpm. i just wanted to confirm if it will be stable to install the rpm. coz internet here is limited.06:23

kelvin911Scunizi: but msn webcam quality is horrible06:35
TheOneAndOnlyHorizonXP: there is, there are drivers in the repos for that, you should be able to find it in synaptic, and google will turn up info on how to mount the partitions in a read-write mode06:36
HorizonXPamenado: yeah, I can mount and read it just fine06:36
Scunizikelvin911, but you didn't really want to look at her .... did you?06:36
kelvin911Scunizi: because her upload speed on the other end is only 256Kbps06:36

kelvin911i have no other choice'06:38
HorizonXPamenado: when I try to modify any file it says it's read-only06:38
HorizonXPbut mount tries to mount it read-write06:38
kelvin911i try many webcam software, found that skype is the best06:38

kelvin911Awp: let me check if pidgin can connect gmail06:39
Scunizikelvin911, it can.. i do it06:40

Scunizikelvin911, yes.. pidgin will connect  to gtalk06:41
HorizonXPamenado: hfsplus is listed at the bottom06:41
* zcat[1] suggests mount -o remount,rw /mountpoint06:41

gilligan_i want to upgrade a system currently still running feisty to gutsy, however a dist-upgrade leads to apt trying to remove apt & libstdc++6 which leads to a warning (obviously) about breaking the system ..  A normal upgrade doesn't seem to run in that problem - so maybe I should just do upgrade and then dist-upgrade ? It's just odd because I can't seem to remember that behavior from previous upgrades from feisty.. Does anyone have an idea 06:49

ubotuMagoonD: Hardy Heron is the code name for the next release of Ubuntu (8.04-LTS), due April 24, 2008 - For more info, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardyHeron - CONSIDER IT TO BE BETA SOFTWARE - Discussion and support in #ubuntu+1, NOT #ubuntu07:31
MadpilotMagoonD,  #ubuntu+1 is the channel for pre-release discussion of the next version of Ubuntu07:31
nikrudmmm4m5m no, you need clt-alt-f* when in X to get to a terminal07:31
Colypsothis room is moving way to fast for me07:31
Colypsoim lost07:31
MadpilotColypso, this is pretty standard for #ubuntu, actually. Slow, even.07:31
Colypsowhat now07:31
IndyGunFreakColypso: and its really slow compared to how its usually running07:31
mmm4m5mnikrud: sure, in this case it was not working, that is why I told -  everything hang up - keys, mouse, just everything07:32
IndyGunFreakprobalby only 20-30 active right now.07:32
MagoonDunop_, my ? wasnt related to the next version but related to how do I back (create a ghost image in windows) so i can restore my config incase  something goes wrong07:32
Colypsowhat command07:32
nikrudColypso when you create a new user, it's not automatically given sudo privileges. You have to assign them by adding them to the admin group.   hence,     adduser ssh admin   to give your ssh user admin privs07:32
Colypsoso i type in adduser07:33
unop_MagoonD, you were asking a question about how to restore if hardy messed up :)07:33
nikrudColypso then, get back out of root on the remote and  try ssh'ing in07:33
mmm4m5mnikrud: update which I run was two "ssh" packages. I run my updates using synaptic (this way I am able to see more details before update)07:33
Colypsoi dont know what to type into root07:33
geirhaColypso: type « groups ssh » to see what groups that user is a memeber of. And if it is a member of admin, then it is allowed to run sudo07:33
IndyGunFreakMagoonD: if yuou have to ask a question like that, its probably bestto jut wait till Hardy is stable.07:34
Colypsowhy wont people Pm u in this room07:34
MagoonDok thanks unop_ , IndyGunFreak07:34
nikrudmmm4m5m could be memory issues. I had that happen to me once, so I ran the memtest function on the grub boot screen, figured out the bad mem stick and pulled it07:34
RkodCan anyone please help me? I am having problems achieving resolutions higher than 800x600 in Ubuntu.07:34
sidis405Rkod: what card do you have?07:35
nikrudColypso to be clear: you have root on the remote, right? And that's the place you want ssh to have sudo privs?07:35
RkodNvidia 5500 FX07:35
kindofabuzzx1250: well the service is called screen07:35
RkodWith drivers installed, but everytime I start up, it asks me about my monitor.07:35
Colypsoi have root through putty07:35
kindofabuzzx1250: terminal multiplexor (screen)07:35
Mzalendohi... am back07:35
sidis405Rkod: and what version are you running?07:35
sidis405Rkod: is it a fresh install?07:36
Mzalendodid someone read and answer my question?07:36
RkodThrough wubi07:36
nikrudColypso ok, and you want the user   ssh    on the remote to be able to sudo ?07:36
RkodThe newest stable, I believe07:36
Mzalendoi need to re-write an appendable CD... what should i use, and how?07:36
mmm4m5mnikrud: I never used memtest, have to try. this is P4 laptop - meaning I did not notice problems before. Anyway, will check it. Thank you.07:36
sidis405Rkod: the channel you want to join is #ubuntu+107:36
Colypsoi want the user to be able to do everything07:36
nikrudColypso ok, in root in putty, type:       adduser  ssh admin  .  After you do that,  anyone logging in as ssh will be able to use sudo07:37
RkodAllright, thanks.07:37
Mzalendothe DVD/CD Writer tool doesnt seem to do it... the CD was created with Sonic Read Now 8.0 on my previous WinXP build, which I am no longer using!07:37
sidis405for the beta release07:37
kindofabuzzx1250: screen is in the repostitories07:37
Mzalendoi have about 300 CDs that need to be re-written07:37
Colypsoadduser: The user `ssh' does not exist.07:37
nikrudColypso then, what user on the remote do you want to have sudo privileges?07:37
nikrudColypso    you said you'd added the user  ssh , we had a communication problem.    sudo adduer colypso admin07:38
kindofabuzzhe can't sudo!07:39
kindofabuzzwe tried that earlier07:39
nikrudColypso typo:    adduser colypso admin07:39
kindofabuzzoh as root07:39
Colypsothat worked07:39
kindofabuzzwhy didn't that work before?07:39
nikrudColypso now, try ssh'ing in as colypso07:39
Colypsodidnt try before07:39
kindofabuzzthought we did07:40
kindofabuzzx1250: you still here?07:40
* nikrud is so sudo-fied he often types it in when in sudo -i anyway07:40
Colypsoi probably couldnt keep up07:40
nikrudColypso what irc client are you using?07:40
nikrudColypso doesn't it colorize when someone types your name in a line?07:41
Mzalendobtw, i am new here07:41
kelvin911hey how come my ftp server home directory always change back to default /var/ftp ??07:41
nikrudColypso in fact, the only reason I was able to keep up with you was I kept my eyes on the screen all the time.  If you had typed, for example    nikrud nope  , that line would be red in xchat07:42
kelvin911i want it to be /media/NTFS500GB-A but everytime it changes back to /var/ftp07:42
TheOneAndOnlykelvin911: check the servers config file?07:43

GatestoneIs there a tool to share a desktop for tutoring? Preferably one which works across firewalls?08:00
unop_Viper111, how are you starting squid therE?08:00
Viper111unop /etc/init.d/squid start08:00
kelvin911rrowell: i did pm you08:00
unop_Viper111, using sudo?08:00
GatestoneI guess VNC allows the local and the remote user to share a common desktop?08:00
rrowelland i responded08:00
Viper111yes for sure08:00
unop_Viper111, sudo /etc/init.d/squid restart08:01
kelvin911Gatestone: try tightVNC08:01
rrowellkelvin911,  what FTP daemon and how are you changing the "home dir"?08:01
kelvin911Gatestone: works for me08:01
syrusok hod do i edit the line out just remove it08:01
Viper111unop_ yes thats wat am writing08:01
kelvin911rrowell: i am using gproftpd08:02
unop_Viper111, i wrote restart not start08:02
Mzalendok3b worked fine, thanks everyone08:02
syrushow do i remove the line for the splashcreen08:02
rrowellkelvin911, and how are you "changing the home dir"?08:02
kelvin911rrowell: is there a screenshot tutorial how to set it properly?08:02
kelvin911in default home dir: i enter /media/NTFS500GB-A08:03
kelvin911but everytime i click apply it changes back to /var/ftp08:03
Viper111unop_ yes the same if restart or start08:03
Gatestonekelvin911: what if both parties are behind a firewall?08:03
rrowellkelvin911, I'm not sure what you mean by "in default home dir: i enter /media/NTFS500GB-A", are you making a sym-link or ?08:03
kelvin911Gatestone: portforward i think08:03
pro-rsoftunop_. thx08:04
Gatestonekelvin911, or at least the desktop that should be shared is behind a firewall. Portforwarding is not possible: I have no access to these corporate firewalls.08:04

rrowellkelvin911, and you have write perms to the file you are trying to modify?08:06
kelvin911rrowell: what do u mean?08:06
kelvin911rrowell: it works last night08:07
kelvin911rrowell: for some reason now wont work08:07
darkscripthow do you make ubuntu boot default to run level 308:07
Viper111nolf thanks man it started now08:07
rrowellkelvin911, that is the config file that the UI you are using to modify the configuration file is running with sufficient permisions to modify said config file?08:07
chrislabeardhow do you unblacklist something08:07
kelvin911rrowell: is there an easier ftp server then gproftpd?08:07
kelvin911rrowell: something like servU in windows?08:07
kelvin911rrowell: i think it is08:07
kelvin911rrowell: because it is in ugly theme which mean the program is running as root08:08
maekKelvin911 Nice theme !!!08:08
GatestoneThere seems to be xvnc4viewer installed by default in Gutsy. Which of the several vnc server alternatives should I use with it?08:08
kelvin911Gatestone: i use xtightvncviewer08:09
kelvin911Gatestone: its the best08:09
rrowellkelvin911, so you are running gproftpd as root then?08:09
kelvin911rrowell: i think so08:10
Gatestonekelvin911, I guess you recommend tightvncserver also?08:10
kelvin911it works last night but then it doest work today08:10
marlunHow much size does the Ubuntu partition need? Whats recommended?08:10
kelvin911Gatestone: yes tightvnc08:10
kelvin911marlun: i would say at least 50GB?08:10
rrowellkelvin911, it does the same for me08:11
tonyyarussomarlun: around 2.5 GB is needed.  Recommended depends on a) how many non-default programs you want to install, b) how much you have in files.  10GB is a good minimum.08:11
darkscriptis there any way to run ubuntu without x by default?08:11
rrowellkelvin911, but it looks like it is doing it on purpose08:11
justmozzyhi guys08:11
icesword2g is at least08:11
rrowellkelvin911, makes me wonder if it is a permisions thing08:11
kelvin911rrowell: what u mean?08:11
justmozzymy linux kernel source tree seems to be incomplete or missing... how can i update that?08:11
kelvin911rrowell: is there other better FTP server?08:11
iceswordmarlun, after the install just remove oopenoffice will save a lot space08:12
rrowellkelvin911, IE, maybe the UI knows the FTP daemon wouldn't have sufficient permisions to read/write that directory08:12
rrowellkelvin911, AFAIK proftpd is pretty damned good08:12
kelvin911rrowell: like more user friendly even your mom  can use it ftp server?08:12
nikrudjustmozzy sudo apt-get install  linux-source , it'll drop a tarball in /usr/src08:12
tonyyarussodarkscript: of course - servers do it all the time.08:12
marlunkelvin911: seems a little much doesn't it? :)08:12
marluntonyyarusso: Ok, thanks :)08:12
justmozzynikrud: thanks :)08:12
rrowellkelvin911, maybe not super user friendly, but you aren't running a MAC now are you ;-)08:12
darkscriptyes tony, but i want to know how08:12
kelvin911is there FTP server for dummy?08:13
tonyyarussodarkscript: if you already have a desktop setup, you can remove "gdm" from a runlevel, and boot that runlevel.  If you install a server, you don't have it in the first place.  :P08:13
darkscriptas i am running a server of regular ubuntu, however i did not have the resources at the time to use08:13
marlunicesword: I think I need OO since I want to be able to write from templates created for Word and Google Docs for example can't do that from what I know.08:13
tonyyarussokelvin911: vsftpd is the best I've found - reasonably good documentation out there.08:13
darkscriptyou cant just change a grub setting or add an extra line?08:13
darkscriptlike perhaps runlevel 3?08:13
kelvin911rrowell: is vsftpd gui based?08:13
tonyyarussokelvin911: no.08:13
kelvin911i need something easy08:14
tonyyarussokelvin911: good servers usually aren't gui08:14
iceswordmarlun, if you want a better choice,eioffice is alternative,but it is not fre08:14
albechkelvin911: search for 'ftpd howto'08:14
albechkelvin911: there are tons of very good guides available08:14
nikruddarkscript in ubuntu, levels 2-5 all run gdm (gui) . You can rename S30gdm to K30gdm in any of them to enable the action you're looking for08:14
darkscripthow do you edit runlevels in ubuntu, from command level08:14

kelvin911my task is very simple ,  i just want to share 3 USB HD08:16
nikrudtonyyarusso yes, but the time it takes to construct the right command line (especially if you only use it a few times a year) is more than installing and running sysv-rc-conf08:17

Flannelj3kyll: What sort of things are you suggesting you take away?08:35
trevhegin the process of installing ebox on my computer, I removed sysvinit and replaced it with upstart. Now my computer won't boot up. Is there some way to undo what I did using a live cd?08:35
j3kyllFlannel : all priveledes, ...file making, etc... except for excuting apps. (essentially the user will have the same files each time they log in. so they won't "muck it up")08:36
Flannelj3kyll: Well, just having a non-admin user will restrict them to their homedir, without being able to make any system wide changes.  As for not creating files within their homedir, they need those files to do a lot of stuff (web browsing, etc).  but you could write something to clean out the homedir everytime they logoff, for instance.08:37

mmm4m5mnikrud: hi, memtest done. I do not see log files. You were right. There are errors with test #5 (block moves), 200M-500M. Errors are consistent, but error address is random. What is the conclusion? I bought this RAM one year ago. It was bad or it become bad (for example because of temperature - my laptop from time to time is very hot)?
