oleanderI had kubuntu on a parttioned drive (not partioned with windows tho, windows was on another drive) and today i deleted the kubuntu partion and formatted it in windows then i went to reboot my pc and now i can boot, it says GRUB loading error 1.505:15
oleanderand now i cant boot05:16
oleanderiive spent hours today trying to figure it out. if anyone can help me id be so grateful05:18
DarkriftXyou need to get grub off of it and use the windows bootloader05:22
DarkriftXid think deleting all partitions and letting windows do all the partitioning during windows setup would fix that05:23
DarkriftXif not, i think there is an option in the system restore to re-add the windows bootloader05:23
oleanderDarkriftX: i can boot into windows05:24
Dr_willisoleander,  what os?05:24
DarkriftXthen whats the problem05:24
Dr_willisxp = boot xp cd, use rescue mode, command is 'fdisk /mbr'05:24
Dr_willisVista has some other commands..05:24
Dr_willisOr was that fdisk /mbr for win95?05:25
DarkriftXprob xp also05:25
DarkriftXfdisk hasnt changed since dos 2.505:25
Dr_willisfdisk /mbr,   fixmbr, fixboot, then vista had some OTHER stuff...05:25
Dr_willisI dont think fdisk was in xp.05:25
Dr_willisNice of MS to remove a age-old-standard tool. :)05:25
DarkriftXof course05:26
oleandercan i get grub off it using live cd?05:26
DarkriftXnice of me to remove MS :)05:26
Dr_willisdeleteing the partitions does not replace the mbr. :)05:26
DarkriftXno, but deleting them makes windows do more when it comes to partitioning05:26
Dr_willisoleander,  a linux live cd?  Depends on the windows OS youare wanting to use.05:26
Dr_willisfind a XP cd, pop it in, use its rescue mode/recovery thing to get to a terminal, use fixmbr i thinkis proberly the easiest way05:27
oleanderi wont wipe my xp drive doing this will i?05:27
Dr_willisit will write a NEW mbr to the hard disk. thats it.05:27
DarkriftXjust your mbr05:27
DarkriftXmbr = master boot record05:27

kkathmanDr_willis:  well, it does say how to install it, but not what to do with the  downloading of emerald themes05:35
DarkriftXyou have to get emerald-themes from the website05:35
DarkriftXits a deb package, install it with dpkg -i filename.deb05:35

DarkestHourSetiAmon: most of the problems with vista is that it tends to throttle network connections when it plays any sound. It's wierd.08:11
SetiAmonsince i switched to this wireless broadband its been pretty weird.it goes down real fast then climbs back up and then drops down again.i think it might be my 2.4 ghz wireless phones.I switched to G only before it was G and B mixed.i heard that might help but it seems to be not much different08:12
DarkestHourSetiAmon: as for you x-fi creative as per usual doesnt have proper drivers, they only provide a 64-bit BETA driver from what i can see there.08:12
SetiAmondig.Do they have that open sound program08:12
DarkestHourhere's the link for the Creative open source page, http://opensource.creative.com/soundcard.html#X-FI08:13
SetiAmoncool at least they have something08:15
DarkestHouri have a client that runs an x-fi on a vista box, i had to install the hacked drivers for the thing to even work right, so i expect creative doesnt even think about their drivers much,08:17
SetiAmonI should say its all a lot simpler from what i remmeber.when i ran linux i never touched X because i didn't want to go threw the hasle.i just stayed in console08:17

progmano1ok, start w/ the peripherals issue09:15
reindeerI'd likme to deal with reversing permissions on my Western Digital USB external 320 Gig.09:15
progmano1what are you trying to change?09:16
progmano1use chmod09:16
reindeerI'm attemting to reverse the write permissions on the drive itself.09:16
progmano1in unix, everything is a file and you can change the permissions of the files.09:18
reindeerI'm haviing a whale of a time divin' into xterm as root to change these write permissions so I am able to swap files as a normal user.09:18
progmano1open a terminal and use sudo chmod09:19
reindeerHow am I able to perform the function without damaging my proper root permissions allowed on the kernel?09:19
reindeerWill do.09:19
progmano1what files are you trying to change the permissions of?09:20
reindeerAll of my music/ vid files stored on my external.09:22
JoshOvkireindeer: so you just need people to have full access to an external drive?09:22
reindeerOnly within my local network via Samba. I was able to write into these files a few weeks ago until I had to reboot my box. Since then, I couldn't write to my drive.09:24
progmano1ah, you could run sudo chown -R user directory  (-R is recursive and will change the ownership of all files within a directory)09:24
reindeerLete me give that a shot. I'll brb.09:24

reindeerI've asked myself the same question three weeks ago when I could no longer write/ swap files into the drive. THat's when I discovered the 501/ dialout for both user/ root. I realized, then, I was screwed after my reboot.09:30
progmano1DrNoboto: what is the file name of the device (e.g. /dev/hda1)?09:31
DrNobotoit's /dev/hda809:31

DrNobotoprobably rfs09:32
=== PhilRod_ is now known as PhilRod
reindeerI'll poke into the /dev file and scope it out.09:33
progmano1do you mean reiserfs?09:33
progmano1rfs is remote file system09:33
DrNobotodefinitely not that09:34
DrNobotoi meant reiser09:34

DrNobotothat's not really possible09:35

progmano1reindeer: that message was something DrNoboto tried on his pc.  it wasn't a suggestion to you09:44
reindeerMan, I got overzealous on the fix. My bad.09:45
progmano1reindeer: do you need to be able to read and write to the drive or only read the files?09:48
reindeerread and write the entire drive.09:51
yao_ziyua1is there any easy way to clean up obsolete config files?09:55
yao_ziyua1those .* in my user directory09:55
reindeerI've executed the sudo chmod -R ( directory ) to recursively unlock all files and redefine file permissions within the drive without success.09:55
reindeerI receive an " invalid mode " message in the xterm.09:56
progmano1reindeer: try chmod -R u+rw directory (if you need other users to be able to access the files then use chmod -R ugo+rw directory)09:57
reindeerOk. I'll give 'em a shot in the term and get back to you shortly.09:58

reindeerWhat parent command and their oiption( s ) would I need to execute to retore the user/ group permissions to read and wrote to my external drive?10:40
CreationistI mean, 20 minutes to rip one CD is a bit much.10:40
reindeer5-7 minute rips are average, depending upon the drive you're using.10:42
Creationistreindeer: Right.. that's what i was expecting... but I can't find a ripper to rip at more than 4.5x.10:42
Creationistreindeer: I have a fairly new CD drive too.10:42

Creationistreindeer: Hmm... the actual CD's themselves, I'm not sure.... they're commercial audio albums.  But I'm pretty sure the drive reads at 52x10:47

steve__anyone failiar with john the ripper10:47
steve__anyone familiar with john the ripper10:48
reindeer52x read is pretty nice. I'm only able to pull 48, although I purposely rip at a lower speed for a more thorough rip of the files( 40 or 44 ).10:49
Creationistreindeer: I wouldn't rip at 52x, but I definitely want more than 4.5.  So any ideas?10:50
llutzCreationist: try konqueror "audio://"10:50
reindeerI will even go to my external USB/ Firewire DVD burner which will rip @ 52, though I dumb it down to 48 for the rip in k3b.10:51
Creationistreindeer: Wait, so K3b will rip too?10:51
Creationistheh, so it does.10:53
=== desti_T2 is now known as desti
reindeerYou could go audio. K3B will automatically read your drive and will allow for you to rip 'em nicely. If you really wanna compress your files iinto .ogg( which I highly recommend ) after the rip, utilize SoundConverter for the job. the results are right on.10:55
reindeerThe GUI is simple to use and a bit spartan, but that's the beauty of open source.10:56
Creationistreindeer: Hmm... K3b seems to be ripping faster, but doesn't report an actual speed.  Does it not do .ogg correctly on it's own?10:57
reindeerHope these tips will work out for you, Creationist:)10:57
reindeerI jump into K3B, then into SoundKonverter for the ,ogg conversions.10:58
CreationistBut K3b rips directly TO ogg... why convert it separately?10:59
reindeerThis is true. You can trust K3B to choose the correct rip speed for your device.10:59
* Creationist is totally in love with K3b... always has been but now finds yet another reason to be. Gnome Baker my buttocks.11:00
reindeerI always allow for k3b to rip into MP3 first. You do have a point iin the name of common-sense and simplicity.11:02
reindeerCreationist, I appreciate you opening my eyes this eve. I'll give K3b another gander for more than just rippin' my files the usual mp3 way, then going externally into SoundKonverter.11:07
reindeerThank you kindly:)11:07
reindeerWhen you go into K3B, there should be a pulldown menu which will allow for you to choose your rip speed.11:08
KubuntuJackcan i use 4GB with 32 bit k/ubuntu ?11:09
reindeerThis relatively simple tweak prior to any k3B riup/ burn should do it.11:10
reindeerYou should be able to use a 4 GB DVD with 32-bit k/ubuntu.11:11
reindeerI generally use x/ubuntu 32-bit Mac 400 Mhz CPU without any latency issues re: 4 GB DVD, KubuntuJack.11:12
reindeerI'm still lookin' for a solution to a drive permission issue with my external.11:14
KubuntuJackreindeer: i'm not sure i understand your answer, let me rephrase.  Does 32bit ubuntu support 4GB RAM, or do I need 64bit ubuntu to fully access it ?11:15
reindeerI thought you meant a DVD, not physical RAM. I have 1 GB RAM in my Mac box running 32-bit x/ubuntu w/out a problem. If you're running 4GB RAM, you may want to look into the possibly installing Ubuntu Server for the memory support, although this could be considered an overkill for most users.11:19

NutubuntuAlternatives to Firefox? Preferably browsers that don't crash so often?17:47
DarkWizzardFirefox 3 ?17:47
DarkWizzardOpera ?17:47
DarkWizzardKonqueror ?17:47
NutubuntuDarkWizzard: FF3 is an improvement. Konq is too ... konqy, I guess.\17:48
DarkWizzardFF3 is beta but I love it17:48
DarkWizzardDon't remember if it ever crashed on me17:48
DarkWizzardmarcio: what's that ?17:48
DarkWizzardnever heard of it :D17:49
marcioum sistema diferente !17:49
algyzDarkWizzard:  ff3 is crashing lots of times for me :(17:49
DarkWizzardI have the nightly build17:49
algyz!pt | marcio17:49
ubotumarcio: Por favor use #ubuntu-br ou #ubuntu-pt para ajuda em português. Obrigado.17:49
DarkWizzardmaybe that's why17:49
algyzDarkWizzard:  I'm using 3.0b5pre, and it's crashing often :(17:50
NutubuntuPersonally I think FF2 should be on the boot menu as the official RAM test ... I can run the memory test for days on end with no errors found, but run Firefox for five minutes ? Blammo. "It's bad RAM dude."17:50
DarkWizzardI remember that feeling17:50
DarkWizzardbut FF3 is a different story17:50
DarkWizzardthe memory usage has decreased drastically17:50
DarkWizzardalgyz: I'm using 3.0pre17:51
NutubuntuI *think* FF2 has problems with the dual-core AMD CPU. That's a guess though ...17:52
DarkWizzardanyway: http://labs.trolltech.com/blogs/2008/03/05/webkit-demobrowser/17:52
DarkWizzardNutubuntu: swiftfox ?17:52
NutubuntuFF3 > Swiftfox17:52
DarkWizzardyeah but Swiftfox _should_ solve the cpu support problem17:53
NutubuntuExcept that FF3 doesn't like some of my fav add-ons17:53
DarkWizzardAFAIK none of them17:53
Nutubuntu:) that's them17:54
algyzNutubuntu:  don't you think it's offtopic? :)17:54

NutubuntuOn-topic question. Sometimes my kubuntu desktop is much wider than my monitor -- I mouse to the right and the screen scrolls until I reach the right edge of the desktop -- and sometimes it's monitor-size. What controls this? and how do I turn it on and off?17:59
BluesKajNutubuntu, widescreen or reg 4:3 ?18:00
NutubuntuBluesKaj: I think reg 4:3 -- can scroll down too (the menu thingie is w-a-a-a-y down there)18:01
BluesKajNutubuntu, what is your resolution set at in system settings/monitor & display18:02
NutubuntuBluesKaj: that's the odd thing: 1280x106418:02
Nutubuntu1024, rather18:02
BluesKajodd for sure18:05

tuxianoyne knows which module i have to load to get nat running18:06
BluesKajNutubuntu, what driver is the monitor using, the generic linux or custom or the hardware specific driver for your monitor ?18:07

DrNobotowhere can i find help with reiserfsck?20:22
ubotureiserfs is a journalling file system, which outperforms many others on I/O operations, but has drawbacks (such as increasing likelihood of data loss, and introducing latency unsuitable for gaming or real-time audio). Using !ext3, the default on Ubuntu, is *highly* recommended. A read-only Windows driver is available at http://p-nand-q.com/download/rfstool.html20:23
DrNobotoincreasing likelihood of data loss.....20:23

algyzronnie:  nvidia's are cool, believe me :)20:24
algyz!sound | Venson20:25
ubotuVenson: If you're having problems with sound, first ensure ARTS is running, by going to K Menu -> System Settings -> Sound System and making sure "Enable the sound system" is checked. If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP320:25

Jucatobasically it just needs a folder (just one) for which it wil use as a source for its image collection20:39

BlackAuraquick question23:20
BlackAurais anyone else having problems getting .deb's from http://kubuntu.org/packages/kde-356-pre-feisty-upgrade/ ?23:20
BlackAuraEverything I try to get from there is zero bytes23:20
MrJoeyI have a question about the bugzilla voting system:  If I use 20 vote points to vote on a bug, will I be able to use those vote points later after the bug has been resolved, or will those points simply be gone?23:21
RogueJediXBlackAura: Yeah, just tried downloading some random ones now. no dice23:22
BlackAuraRogueJediX: cool, not just me...thanks.......anyone know of a mirror?23:22
Nyadis there a kubuntu repository with packages compiled for bleeding-edge computers?23:27
BlackAuraSooooo, no one knows of a kubuntu.org package mirror? Since apparently some of the .deb files are broken?23:30
RogueJediXBlackAura: Sorry, can't think of any23:30
NyadBlackAura: what are you using atm? I can't help but I;m just curious23:32
BlackAuraNyad: trying to access http://kubuntu.org/packages/kde-356-pre-feisty-upgrade/ to get the packages, to upgrade to feisty, but all the .deb files are 0 bytes when downloaded.23:32
BlackAuraAlso when I was updating from dapper -> edgy, I had the same problem but managed to find a mirror....unfortunately they dont' have the pre-feisty folder mirrored23:33
Nyadbut what if you get the CD? can you upgrade it that way?23:34
BlackAurahmmm, that's quite possible...23:35
BlackAuraoh well, I've got edgy working now, who should I alert to the fact that the kubuntu.org repository is doing weird things and all .deb files are 0 bytes?23:39
iboui'd like to split tracks on a big ape file. Is it possible ?23:39
RogueJediXibou: I'm no audio expert, but I think you need a cue file for that or you could convert it to wav and do it yourself23:41
ibouRogueJediX: ok. If i have the cue file How should i porceed?23:43
RogueJediXibou: I'd first convert the ape file into something K3B can burn, then I'd burn it on a CD using the cue file and then I'd rip the tracks23:45
RogueJediXibou: There's probably an easier way, though. Like I said, I'm not an expert on such things23:45
