Survivormantogoella,  did you sudo apt-get update?00:00
hellonulltim167: if you want a gui, use gftp, you can find it in synaptic00:00
alperkanatbinarical-app: i'm running django's bundled server on my ubuntu box now... and trying to forward the external port to this machine's 8000. port00:00
nickrudtogoella then sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin00:00
togoelladone nickrud00:00
omarBut one more thing, what was that command used to locate the trash?00:00
nickrudtogoella look just above your line00:00
IndyGunFreakomar: to locate it, or to use root to delete it?00:01
togoellaok it is loading00:01
togoellathank you so much guys00:01
nickrudIndyGunFreak he's on edgy00:01

* togoella smiles00:01
IndyGunFreakah.. gotcha.00:01
IndyGunFreakwhy?..lol00:01
nickrudtogoella enjoy :)00:01
omarIndyGunFreak: locate it00:01
togoellaI like it a lot00:02
IndyGunFreakomar: well trash, all you have to do is open your home folder, click View/Show HIdden files, then go down to ./Trash, and double click it00:02
Thib_I hate when this happens00:02
togoellaWhile it loads, can someone tell me if there is any way to play windows games on ubuntu :D ?00:02
nickrudomar   sudo updatedb && locate Trash  (updatedb only has to be run when there're new files to be indexed, and is run daily by default)00:02
IndyGunFreaktogoella: sometimes00:02
Thib_I bought a new laptop and of course all its hardware is basically too recent to work with anything00:02
nickrud!wine | togoella (but it's crack)00:02
ubotutogoella (but it's crack): WINE is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs on GNU/Linux. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine for more information, and see !AppDB for application compatibility.00:02
omarnickrud: Yes thanks! That's what I was looking for! ;)00:02
towlie_whats the name of the unix based app that formats your c++ code00:02
deniz__yo can sum1 plz help me share a dial-up connection (i did the hosting on a windows xp comp) but how do i do the client on an ubuntu 7.04 laptop?00:03
togoellayeah I read about wine00:03
togoella!appbd00:03
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about appbd - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi00:03
tim167hellonull: ok, the ftp command mput only puts files inside the cwd, not folders is there a way to make it put folders too ?00:03
nickrudthat's the place to look, alright00:03
IndyGunFreak!appdb | togoella almost...00:03
ubotutogoella almost...: The Wine Application DB is a database of applications and help for !Windows programs that run under !WINE: http://appdb.winehq.org00:03
pirattrevhow do i test if my nick is registered?00:04
StPatrickDoes ubuntu support compiz?00:04
GIndeniz__: how is the laptop connected to the xp machine?00:04
binarical-appalperkanat: you will have to let incomming connections connect to this port. to do so you must edit a .conf file that partains to your application. in my experiance , i had to edit a .conf file to allow http access to my home server.....if you wait a bit i might be able to help you some more00:04
Survivormanpirattrev, did you get my pm?00:04
Survivormanyou're registered00:05
IndyGunFreakStPatrick: ubuntu supports it fine, its wether your video device supports it, is the question00:05
nickrudStPatrick yes00:05
alperkanatbinarical-app: ok00:05
deniz__GIn, thru a wired router (I think i have the router set up properly but I am not 100% sure)00:05
togoellaawesome fs2004 works :D00:05
pirattrevthanks survivorman00:05
Survivormanpirattrev, you're very welcome00:05
IndyGunFreakpirattrev: you should see on the main freenode page, assuming you're using xchat/xchat-gnome, it will say "this nick is registered",00:05
IndyGunFreakor something like that00:05
StPatrickLoL, Im using it in Mandriva right now.00:05
deniz__quick compiling questiom: do u need to extract a tar.bz2 b4 working on it or not?00:05
StPatrickDoes anyone know how to get a Realtek RTL 8187b to work in Ubuntu?00:06
togoellahow do I install it? apt-get install wine , ?00:06
pirattrevyeah, i'm using gnome-xchat00:06
GIndeniz__: if your inetrnet connection is on the xp machine, I think you need a switch. Does the router have dhcp build into it?00:06
hellonulltim167: good question, i'm not sure00:06
oddertogoella: and there's cedega as well, you can get a free (no cost, I mean) version from their SVN00:06
nickrudtogoella yes. Or, you can use system->admin->synaptic for a nice tool. ctl-f opens a search box00:06
IndyGunFreakpirattrev: when you log back in next time, you'll see where it says "this nick is registered, if its your nick.." something like that00:06
odder!cedega | togoella00:06
ubotutogoella: cedega is a project based on WINE, aimed at running Windows games on Linux. For more info, see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/Cedega00:06
togoellaodder:  what's cedega?00:06
deniz__GIn, i have no idea all i can tell u is its a d-link DI-60400:06
oddertogoella: ^^ :)00:06
pirattrevok, thanks again00:06
tim167hellonull: ok, I'll install gftp and see if that brings me luck ...00:06
mysterycoolomg00:07
hellonulltim167: i would stick with gftp for that, i'm sure there's a way with terminal-based ftp but i am not aware of it00:07
deniz__GIn, i have dial-up internet00:07
togoellathanks odder :D00:07
togoellalet's see00:07
nickrudtim167 you might want to look at lftp , it's a package that installs a client that supports folders (iirc)00:07
mysterycoolif i did ./configure then make and then make install to actuallyget grub working did i mess up the bootloader of ubuntu??! :S00:07
deniz__GIn, i got the hosting right and on microsofts help website it says to do things on a client comp and on the wizard it says to do stuff like floppy or xp cd to it but its not windows the client its ubuntu so im stuck00:07
nickrudmysterycool you certainly replaced parts of it, whether it's messed up, well ....00:07
mysterycool*to actually get GRUB working did I mess up the boot loader of Ubuntu??! :s00:08
mysterycooloh00:08
togoellawait wait wait00:08
togoellais wine free?00:08
charles|64hey room00:08
mysterycoolnickrud: which means...? :S00:08
oddertogoella: as in freedom00:08
GIndeniz__: I think you need a switch and not a router with modem buidlin it00:08
togoellabecause Cedega is not :|00:08
Thib_I wish00:08
DevrethmanAnybody care to take a look at this http://pastebin.ca/973130 and see if they can see what's up00:08
Thib_oh you mean the software ;-)00:08
Devrethmancause it looks to me like everything's going fine, then it juse aborts00:08
Devrethmanfor no apparent reason00:08
nickrudyes. togoella00:08
Survivormantim167, xcopy moves files and folders i think00:08
* Thib_ wishes wine made from grapes was free00:08
GIndeniz__: you are connected to the internet through a dialup on the xp machine right?00:09
deniz__GIn, ya00:09
togoellanickrud:  then  I don't want cedega anymore lol, that's why I thought about linux as open source...00:09
togoellaHAHAH00:09
GIndeniz__: and you have internet sharing setup on the xp machine?00:09
GIndeniz__: then you need a switch00:09
nickrudmysterycool you did the compile, you can test it with a reboot (or do sudo apt-get remove --purge grub && sudo apt-get install grub )00:09
nickrudtogoella it is, cedega has some proprietary bits00:09
deniz__GIn, i have ubuntu also so if i could share using ubuntu and a router tell me plz and firestarter doesnt work00:09
GIndeniz__: I don't know if it is also possible with that dlink router. hang on00:09
mysterycoolnickrud: if i remove wont the bootloader of ubuntu be removed? :S00:09
tim167Survivorman: ok thanks for the suggestion, i just started the transfer with gftp though, works too...00:09
deniz__GIn, k00:09
StPatrickEveryone, I have great news00:10
hellonullhaha Devrethman, nice update command00:10
nickrudmysterycool that's why you immediately reinstall00:10
StPatrickI'm installing Ubuntu!!!00:10
HangukMigukok, i think i figured out why my aac files aren't working, but i have a question, is there any way possible to backtrack in repository and install older versions of packages?00:10
mysterycoolnickrud: what do u mean immediately reinstall? :S00:10
togoellaok first need I to download wine? right? cedega is like a plugin or im awrong00:10
nickrudmysterycool look at the complete command I gave you00:10
GIndeniz__: connect your laptop to the modem first00:10
nickrudtogoella no. you either get cedega or wine00:10
GIndeniz__: do you know how to use the terminal?00:11
mysterycoolnickrud: and are u sure it's going to work? :S00:11
hexoroidanybody good with named ?00:11
togoellaCedega is a proprietary product, that must be purchased (currently $5.00 per month with a 3 month minimum initial purchase)00:11
GIndeniz__: I mean the router00:11
Devrethmanhellonull:Yeah, it was a joke, he was like "why can't I just say "upgrade mah shit" and make it go"00:11
SeveredCrossHangukMiguk: Why do you need to downgrade?00:11
togoellawhy do you keep saying is free :|00:11
deniz__GIn, wait, connect my laptop to the modem??? how is that possible?? I have a winmodem with dell's driver for it even tho its not a dell comp00:11
SeveredCrossAAC works fine for me in Gutsy and in Hardy00:11
Boohbahtogoella: cedega is a distribution of wine with proprietary directx layer and it costs money00:11
nickrudmysterycoolI've fixed my system with with that command more than once ;)00:11
GIndeniz__: I mean the router00:11
GIn;)00:11

Boohbahhexoroid: what's up with named?00:12
odderBoohbah: the SVN version costs $000:12
HangukMigukServedCross: libfaad2-0 is a cvs version, i need an earlier version to work with gstreamer00:12
deniz__GIn, the laptop and desktop r connected to the router, ask me questions to c if its connected properly00:12
SeveredCrossHangukMiguk: Hmm.00:12
GIndeniz__: do you know how to use the terminal?00:12
SeveredCrossThat's odd. AAC worked in Gutsy just fine, works in Hardy now too.00:12
Boohbahtogoella: <odder> Boohbah: the SVN version costs $0 - so, you can compile it if you want....00:12
oddertogoella: you can get the SVN version of cedega for free, but I'm not sure if it's free software00:12
SeveredCrossI just installed ubuntu-restricted-extras.00:12

binarical-appalperkanat: in the specific instance i needed to configure :/etc/apach2/ports.conf like "Listen 127.0.0.1:80" originally this file comes without the :80 , meaning that the ip address is allowed, however pot 80 where a browser needs to connect could not. i needed to manually configure this file so that port 80 (for http) would be accepted00:14
mysterycoollike in a bit00:14

Frogger626Hello again00:25
icesworddeniz__, router?it is easy00:25
GIndeniz__: let me explain how the dlink router works. The router has a DSL/Cable modem build into it and the router uses that as it's main connection to the internet and share that to the computer connected to the 4 ethernet ports.00:25
Frogger626Is there a way to restore the MBR on a computer, or at least make GRUB dual-boot friendly?00:25
togoellahow do I use wine00:25
togoellahow do I run a program using wine00:25
ryanzeci just did a .configure make and make install for 2.0.16 alsa but my version is still 2.0.15, hwo do i enable it?00:26
GInbut in your case, the internet connection is not from the router but from your xp pc.00:26
Frogger626Togoella: I ask myself the same question every day.00:26
friedtofuFrogger626 - i thought grub is dualboot friendly :/00:26
RoAkSoAxtogoella, wine prorgam.exe00:26
togoellaRoAkSoAx:  thanks00:26
hellonulltogoella, well first you need a windows program (.exe) to run00:26
deniz__GIn, well on the part were its spose to get internet i connected it to my ethernet port on my mobo hoping to transmit dial-up to it00:26
tyuiowhen u plug a usb device how detect the device and give the correct drivers ?00:26
Frogger626friedtofu: I can't get grub to allow Windows to boot.00:26
iceswordtogoella, wine /pathto the exe file?00:26
tyuiowhen u plug a usb device how linux detect the device and give the correct drivers ?00:26
hellonulltogoella: if you do torrents, i would recommend instlaling utorrent under wine, as it will give you experience and come in handy too00:26
deniz__GIn, wat about doing it wireleslly? i have a airlink 101 wireless card in desktop and D-Link DWl-G122 usb adapter00:27
softtowerregexp00:27
GIndeniz__: no, a router does not works like that, not the d-link one00:27
iceswordFrogger626, windows cannot boot or linux?00:27
hvgotcodeshey should i recompile the stock kernel?00:27
GIndeniz__: if the desktop one can acts as an access point, yes, you can share using that setup.00:27
hvgotcodesmeaning: is it lik 386 only and would there be benefit from recompiling?00:27
hellonulltogoella, wine "path", where path will start with c:00:27
miko3khi ... is there any way to fix the splash screen during bootup ? coz it freezes and only way out is alt+f1 ...00:27
deniz__GIn, wat setup? the wireless one i suggested?00:27
GIndeniz__: but it's much complicated with a switch.00:27
Frogger626icesword: I can boot linux, what I'm in now. At least, off the CD. I have not attempted a partition. No, I cannot run Windows.00:28
GIndeniz__: yep, the wireless one00:28
deniz__GIn, i can do it with only wat i have???00:28
hellonulltogoella: or another drive letter00:28
GIndeniz__: note that not all wireless cards can act as a accesspoint00:28
deniz__GIn, but ill need ndiswrapper for it i herd and thats gona complicate my life a lot00:28
iceswordFrogger626, what about fixboot ?you have winodws install cd?00:28
deniz__GIn, my desktop is 7.10 and laptop 7.04 i hope thats not a problem00:28
hellonulltogoella: it is easiest to just get your .exe (if it is an installer) on the desktop and double click it, it will autmatically launch it in wine00:28
GIndeniz__: if you can make your win xp pc as an accesspoint, it will be easy00:28
togoellahellonull: isn't working like that00:29
togoellaif I use wine file.exe show me00:29

Frogger626BRB with any luck00:34
ellsworthbut there doesn't appear to be a "network setup"00:34
GIndeniz__: but anyway, the easy way to setup a network sharing a dialup connection on the cp machine is suing a switch00:34
deniz__bod_, download cinelerra, more than that i dont no00:35

marsjeHi. How do I set up ubuntu to use English, but have Dutch date/time notation? Do I just edit /etc/environment? I don't really understand how it is supposed to work...00:36
ellsworthis that a GUI interface? regular "xchat" that is?00:36
alperkanatbinarical-app: hmmm.. 192.168.1.2:8000 works now.. but it can't be reached from outside :)00:36
andreferreira_ppl im sorry, but sincerily, i can't understand why my answer is the only not answered...00:36
GIndeniz__: o.k try to put the wireless card in windows xp as an accesspoint then00:36
emmaellsworth, yes I use xchat. I think it is excellent.00:36
Scuniziellsworth, sure.. as backup you might also consider irssi which works on the commandline/terminal.. just in case your gui bombs for some reason you'll still be able to connect and get help00:37
togoellahellonull:  yeah is on the desktop00:37
emmathere is also a channel for #xchat but I thought you had your heart set on xchat-gnome which is not the same thing00:37
ellsworthgot it thnx00:37

binarical-appalperkanat: have you set it on your router? do you know how to do that ? your router has an ip , enter this ip into your browser then enter the login stuff then you should be able to find you way from there..... forward your needed port00:38
deniz__GIn, r u talking bout my desktop comp now?00:38
bod_deniz__, ok, il have a play, do i want cinelerra or cinelerra-CV ??00:38

GInlol01:01
StPatrickthe huh?01:01
emmaI'm not sure if that link directly helps. I am not sure if what you are doing is the same as what what was talking about.01:01
chapocer1Scunizi, its a first gen ipod.. im kickin it old school... if i can get ubuntu to recognize it, its going to get partitioned up and treated as a very crappy external hard drive01:01
Scunizibogdement, if you are going to install windows it will take over the entire drive and wipe out most everything.. if you want it to.01:01
emmaThey had dual monitors and it talked about setting the default one.01:01
Dr_willisStPatrick,  you will at least be wanting to install the C compiler :) otherwise you are not going to be compiling any code at all.01:01
StPatrick=/01:01
Dr_willisStPatrick,  install the build-essential package.01:01
togoellaHow do I install the icons team??01:01
bogdementi have windows installed already now i am on windows but i want to redistribute the used space from linux01:01

Adrythe Open office's menu has an rare font (shapes, circles...). how can I fix it?01:02
Scunizichapocer1, ah.. still thought it was usb.. but it might be seen by gparted.. sudo apt-get install gparted. then sudo gparted to run it.01:02
friedtofutogoella: extract the files and put it in your ~/.themes folder01:02
Dr_willisStPatrick,  sudo apt-get install build-essential01:02

friedtofutogoella: extract the files and put it in your ~/.icons folder01:02
Waterlooemma: no :OD  I am trying to get a sick laptop to use another monitor as its ONLY visual source...linux like to autodetect the monitors and it wants to pick the broken one.01:02
emmaAdry - what do you mean?01:02
friedtofuyeah... second one - ~/.icons folder01:02
StPatrickDr_willis,  What is sudo?01:02
Dr_willisStPatrick,  if you are so new you dont know how to isntall anything under ubuntu. I suggest reading some of the ubutnu starter guides then.01:02
togoellawhere is the ~/.icons folder?01:02
Dr_willisStPatrick,  sudo is a command you use in the shell.01:02
chapocer1Scunizi, Ubuntu just isn't even recognizing that i have a firewire driver, it seems.01:02
friedtofuit'll be in /home/yourname/.icons - and if it isnt there make it01:02
Adryemma, I can't read the menu because the font is strange01:02
StPatrickDr_willis, k, gimme a sec. let me see if i can figure out what your talking about.01:03
ScuniziWaterloo, if you have another computer you could MAYBE ssh into it and reconfigure for dual monitors..01:03
friedtofuwith mkdir ~/.icons01:03

emmaAdry - Espanol?01:05
Scuniziboxybrown, easy.. partimage will mirror the partition and allow you to put it back on the new drive .. then you'll have to go in with parted or gparted and "expand" the partition.01:05

Jordan_Ubogdement, Are you trying to make Windows smaller to make room for Ubuntu or get rid of Ubuntu to make more room for windows?01:07
nickrudbogdement not sure what you mean, you want to remove ubuntu and give the space back to windows?01:07
Scunizibogdement, so you're getting rid of Ubuntu... and you wan't to use the empty space for windows.. I suggest joining ##windows and ask there since you'll be using windows tools.  If grub is still installed they can help reinstall the win MBR01:07

StPatrickJordan_U,  Im not sure how to get that information, but someone else told me it's a Realtek RTL8187b, and the chipset is RTL818701:08

StPatrickhischild, To be honest, No, Im not even to that point yet. I must formatted into Ubuntu, and Im looking for a _solution_ whatever it may be.01:10
ScuniziWaterloo, from the terminal you can usually find out by typing lspci which lists all devices connected to the pci buss.01:10
StPatrickhischild, I am, however, using http://danmarner.blogspot.com/2008/01/rtl8187b-linux-native-driver-works-on.html as a reference link.01:10

GIndeniz__, I have never tried to setup an accesspoint with Ubuntu before.01:17

bobbo85the reason i ask is this - I love VLC media player, and wish I could use it for all videos - the problem I've been having is that it takes forever to seek!  If I try to skip ahead a few seconds, the video will freeze, the audio will continue, and when the video catches up a few seconds later, it's all distorted for a few seconds before returning to normal - mplayer doesn't seem to have this problem01:19
ScuniziStPatrick, hischild I just googled the model number he posted.01:20
bobbo85is there any way to make VLC "seek" instantly like other media players?01:20

StPatrickbut still, http://pastebin.ca/97325901:21
bobbo85Dr_willis, what video players do you have/recommend?  and has anyone tried "Beep" yet?01:21
hischildStPatrick, might be so. Use synaptic. And thanks01:21
StPatrickwhat's synaptic?01:21
StPatrickbobbo85,  I HIGHLY reccomend VLC.01:22
Dr_willisbobbo85,  beepmediaplayer  is more of a audio player. not video01:22
hischildStPatrick, system -> administration -> synaptic01:22
Dr_willisbobbo85,  vlc uses its own codec stuff I think. while gmplayer uses the w32codecs I belive is the main diff.01:22
hischildStPatrick, advanced version of the add/remove software thing.01:22
ScuniziStPatrick, just checked and it's in synaptic01:22
StPatrickhischild,  Ok01:22
ScuniziStPatrick, use the search key and search for pastebin and you'll see it01:22

Dr_willisbobbo85,  kmplayer is the kde front end for mplayer, g is the gnome front end. smplayer is some other front end.01:25
pyrakWaterloo, grub is the bootloader.01:26
hischildPwrSurge, one way traffic from the server to the client isn't counted as active.01:26
metbsdi thought kmplayer is some player on windows01:26
ScuniziWaterloo, you probably don't see grub because there is not other os on the system.. it's a boot manager and lets you choose between different os installs. VMware server loads in Ubuntu and allows you to install windows "in a window" so you can run windows like any other program but totally isolated (virus protection).01:26
DistroJockeyxfa: take a look at  alsamixer  in a terminal01:26
Dr_willismetbsd,  not that ive seen.. thers mplayer for windows also.01:26

IndyGunFreakStPatrick: you can always also turn on logging, then just copy/paste at your leisure01:28
hischildScunizi, the default pastebin is not this one unfortunately as for some reason it's incompatible so far. However it works by piping it info from a command. Try to cat a file and then add | pastebinit01:28
Dr_willisjblack,  They work here for me.01:28

StPatrickFrustation, Is it the NFSMW Black edition? :P01:31
niko_is the actual 8.05 out now?01:31
hischildStPatrick, ok. Another copy for you ==> sudo modprobe ipw394501:31
FrustationStPatrick: it's not good for me :(01:31
niko_or still alpha or beta?01:31

Dr_willischarles|64_,  you may want to check out the  fusesmb tools, instead of mountign the share, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FuseSmb01:31
troxorniko_: niko_ couple weeks01:31
jblackOk. Found it. I had another copy of firefox running on another window. So, if people say they can't google, tell them to make sure they really closed firefox. ;)01:31
FrustationGin i have do that01:31
niko_ty01:31
ScuniziWaterloo, nope.. VMWare uses files to make windows think that it is in a normal drive partition.. so if you wanted to get rid of it.. you just delete the files and it's GONE.  It will also let you install other OS's to try out01:31
bobbo85Thanks Dr_willis I just installed Gmplayer, it's strange though it will open the movie (a .wmv file) but it wont play it just stays paused on whatever frame I seek to (and it says "playing")01:32
niko_what improvements will tehre be?01:32
Ltp0wernewbie here, will I have a problem with my 8800GTX and drivers in ubuntu?01:32
hischildLtp0wer, it should be fine01:32
Dr_willisbobbo85,  i make it a point to not touch wmv files. :) they can be all sorts of weird-spyware-virusware codecs.01:32
Ltp0werSweet, thank you hischild01:32
bobbo85The same file works slowly in VNC, is choppy and awful in "Movie player" but works perfectly in "mplayer" - i just can't control the sound without affecting all other sounds01:32
Ltp0werBut if you are wrong, I am going to complain and insult your mother01:32
StPatrickhischild,  How do i use the pastebin thing i downloaded?01:32
bobbo85Dr_willis, can I convert them to another video format?01:32
ScuniziLtp0wer, on the current version (gutsy) you might have to install the nvidia binary driver.. on the next version coming out the end of this month it will more than likely be included.01:32
Dr_willisbobbo85,  could try converting the video to some other format I guess. avidmux is the tool i use for that. or mencoder01:33
hischildStPatrick, add | pastebinit to the command you want to put on pastebin. To try ==> dmesg | pastebinit01:33

metbsdvmware server is slower than workstation01:33
StPatrickhttp://paste.stgraber.org/230601:33
Dr_willisLtp0wer,  the restricted-manager tool installed them for me.01:33
unocrashhey all!01:33
ScuniziLtp0wer, yes.. there's lots of how to's on how to install it.. read lots.. do once.. :)01:34
Dr_willisLtp0wer,  should be an icon at the top right for it.01:34
FnordPerfecthi everybody! I fubar'd my installation by downgrading to gutsy. could someone lend a hand? it seems that the root partition does not get re-mounted rw during boot.01:34
hischildStPatrick, what error did it give you?01:34
BysmuthMageokay so I'm in the process of installing Ubuntu on an external hard drive.  I disconnected the main drive just to make sure the install doesn't touch it.  This has caused a (potential) problem: The external drive is now named sda instead of sdb.  If I install this based on the external drive = sda and then reconnect the main drive, bumping the external drive to sdb, will there be a conflict, like in /etc/fstab?01:34
Ltp0werDr_willis, I am on vista right now01:34
Dr_willisLtp0wer,  you have my sympathy. :)01:34
StPatrickhischild,  ERROR: Could not find Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection01:34
ScuniziDr_willis, I don't think the restriced drivers manager has the 8800 included.. it came out after gutsy did if I remember correctly.01:34
boxybrownLtp0wner mine to01:34
hischildBysmuthMage, ubuntu uses UUID's. It should be fine.01:34
metbsdDr_willis: vmware workstation is better. vmware server turns on alot debug mode, so it's slower,01:34
hischildStPatrick, hmm ... seems like we have to get it somewhere else. Second please.01:35
Devrethmananybody have StepMania working on ubuntu?01:35
Dr_willisScunizi,  i have an 8800 card here.. and it worked for my 8800GTSXXX card.01:35
StPatrickk01:35
Dr_willisScunizi,  but youa re correct - it can depend on the exact 8800 card01:35
Scunizimetbsd, Dr_willis but vmware workstation is $'s.. server is Free01:35
BysmuthMageoh right... totally forgot about that I'm so used to the thumb drives borking themselves when I manually put them into /etc/fstab that I didn't even think about that01:35
BysmuthMagethanks01:35
ScuniziDr_willis, oh.. didn't know that.. good to hear.01:35
Dr_willisScunizi,  there is a free verison of both i thought01:35
unocrashwhen's hardy out?01:36

softtowerhow do I tell from a command line how much ram a process is using? "top" won't work because of two reasons: a) it shows percentage of total, and b) the process I am interested in isn't in the list top is showing me.01:37
Dr_willisScunizi,  i always use the server version, so i rarely mess ith workstation01:37
ScuniziDr_willis, just player in ther now.01:37

hischildStPatrick, would you mind if i give you a link from someone on the forums who says they have fixed it, along with a perfect description and then run off to get sleep?01:37
pollito -- To Pollito: just ask youe question here :) I'll be leaving now. Talk to me by pm here on IRC...gah01:37
Dr_willisScunizi,  i must not understand how 'workstation' differes from 'player' then01:37
StPatrickbobbo85, Did you try VLC Media player?01:37

Devrethmanalso, is there a quick and dirty configurator for NFS or some other form of linux-linux filesharing?01:37
StPatrickhischild, Yes, but ill still try it.01:37
Dr_willisbobbo85,  run the program. read its docs/guides.. convert :)01:38

hischildStPatrick, the link ==> http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=837922&postcount=701:38
FnordPerfect*help* ?01:38
StPatrickhischild,  I have read over so many things that say I fixed it, or confirmed, or works, or whatever, and failed miserably....01:38
prettyrickyI suggest vlc player thats just my opinion, whats perfectly01:38
bobbo85StPatrick, VLC media plays the file, but it will not seek - if i try to skip ahead at all, it "lags" for a few seconds at a time01:38
ScuniziDr_willis, they may have renamed it player..  server allows you to install a full OS from cd instead of being locked into "appliances"01:38
hischildStPatrick, if you have help, you can always call at the channel. And this one seems fairly solid.01:38

jordan_cached, Especially since the wine devs themselves have an Ubuntu repository02:03
Rafaberoot: was it a new profile or did you import stuff from a Windows installation?02:03
Dr_willisFrustation,  you use wine, or cedega to run the installer, it should add icons in the menus for the games. If the game dosent work check the wine app database to se eif theres any tweaks for the game. It  MIGHT be totally unplayable with wine.02:03

jimDigitalKiwi: it's not debian. the only thing in common really is the packaging format... and even that is questionable, because ubuntu takes all its software from debian unstable and works on it02:43
vocxtocmo0nlord, jim, he could try alien but it is not needed to install adobe reader.02:43

nickrudosxdude|laptop done that myself a couple times, easy to set up networking02:57
refraxchristophoros: tell me if it worked02:58

osxdude|laptopnickrud, that is correct, remember I'm in the alternate disk :D02:58
xfayeah but muting front mutes the rest02:58
amenadovocx-> it would not be so bad, when missing those  ieee80211 to load ipw394502:58
nickrudosxdude|laptop I would have kept my mouth shut otherwise, it's the only install I use (and know even a little about)02:58
xfaDistroJockey, istn there a tool letting me configure that seperatly02:58
vocxamenado, I get it. However, I think that when you install kernel headers the symlinks are automatically set, you don't need to do it yourself. He is using a strange non-ubuntu guide?02:59

amenadovocx i dont know, he found the solution, we were looking for the stock  ieee80211 but he has gone far enuff on the steps to have removed these..so we may as well go forward with building a newer  ieee8021103:00

HugoEnderi am having problems logging on to root using su- to install something04:07
HugoEnderwhat are my options?04:07
FnordPerfectbye *04:07
jim_beamhas anybody installed e17 in ubuntu 7.104:07
nickrudHugoEnder   sudo <command>   or sudo -i   for a root shell04:07
Ashfire908HugoEnder, in ubuntu you use sudo04:07
HugoEnderooo04:08
bazhangMonobi2: that has a broadcom card in it?04:08
HugoEnderthen what does su - do in ubuntu?04:08
vocxHugoEnder, don't use "su" use "sudo"04:08
Monobi2bazhang: er, yes04:08
Ashfire908HugoEnder, same. but in ubuntu there is no root pass04:08
bazhangaxel: did you try your firefox cache04:08
amenadoAshfire908-> i dont think  "." is in your $PATH04:08
Monobi2bazhang: s/broadcom card/wireless card/ ?04:08
madagascarHello ! after upgrade to 8.04, MailScanner stopped working. Now i can't reinstall and can't deinstall due to inconsistent state04:08
HugoEnderso what is the highest permission in ubuntu ashfire?04:08
bazhangMonobi2: any friedns with a cd drive?04:08
Ashfire908HugoEnder, root.04:08
vocxmadagascar, , please don't ask questions about hardy here, until it's release has been made official.04:08
* nickrud copies vocx's text replace04:09
HugoEnderAshfire908, but there is no pass for root?04:09
bazhangmadagascar: #ubuntu+1 please04:09
Monobi2bazhang: I have an external CD driver04:09
bazhangMonobi2: one that works?04:09
Ashfire908HugoEnder, yes there is no password for root.04:09
Monobi2bazhang: yes, it is external04:09
Monobi2bazhang: just bought it tonight04:09
bazhangMonobi2: then problem solved04:09
vocxnickrud, seriously I felt like that was deja vu, I was expecting nickrud though04:09
Monobi2bazhang: how so? my BIOS doesnt see it :|04:10
bazhangMonobi2: that is what I use to install ubuntu on my eeepc04:10
HugoEnderAshfire908, so what stops anyone from installing stuff on ur computer using root?04:10
nickrudvocx heh. found out I had one already, just forgot #ubuntu+1 is handling hardy questions until release,  /j #ubuntu+104:10
Ashfire908!sudo | HugoEnder04:10
ubotuHugoEnder: sudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information.04:10
Ashfire908HugoEnder, when a user account has no pass, you can't login via a password.04:10
Monobi2bazhang: well, you are going to have to walk me through it ;) . I modified my BIOS to boot from the various USB options and the Hard Drive last, but it didn't work.04:10
bazhangMonobi2: you may need to get vista drivers for it then; not sure about vista, might ask in ##windows first then come back04:11
Monobi2bazhang: vista drivers?04:11
nickrudHugoEnder and only the first, installation created user has sudo privs, unless you grant them by adding a user to the admin group04:11
axelbazhang: I tried my Konqueror history.04:11
vocxHugoEnder, basically only the users that are in the admin group can use sudo, others cannot.04:11
bazhangMonobi2: you are using vista right now, yes?04:12
Monobi2Yes04:12
bazhangMonobi2: and you have a problem with Vista recognizing an external cd drive, correct?04:12
=== GameJunkie is now known as Lleumas
Monobi2bazhang: not vista04:13
Monobi2bazhang: the BIOS04:13
Monobi2bazhang: I have the driver software for the hard drive04:13
Monobi2bazhang: er, s/hard drive/external CD drive/04:13
bazhangMonobi2: once you get that solved (hardware/bios issue) we can help you with ubuntu on there; until that time it is not really an ubuntu issue04:13
vocxMonobi2, It should be recognized by the linux kernel, and if it is not, then it won't work since the windows drivers are not compatible with linux.04:14
Monobi2bazhang: okay. Well, that is my problem. I have used ubuntu on two other machines I have, so installing ubuntu itself isnt the problem :)04:14
bazhangMonobi2: which is why I suggested asking for help in ##windows and then coming back; we will still be here when you return04:14
Kurban_Haydarovhi04:14
Monobi2:)04:14
HugoEndervocx, nickrud : then what stops something from just coming to my computer when i am away and typing sudo to install malicious software?04:14
SilentSounDhow can i make backspace == back in firefox ?04:14
nickrudHugoEnder they need to know your user password04:15
bazhangaxel: no luck in konqueror?04:15
vocxHugoEnder, well they need your password still.04:15
HugoEndero oka04:15
Kurban_Haydarovhi04:15
axelbazhang: Not so far.04:16
madagascarhi again - how can i re-install or remove a package which "is in a very bad inconsistent state" ?04:16
HugoEnderthank you for your help guys04:16
Kurban_HaydarovI need some help guy about my friend's wireless problem04:16
axelDoes anybody know how to access the cashe of Konqueror?04:16
tyTrying to open qparted and getting this error "Failed to execute child process "qtparted-root" (No such file or directory)"04:16
sjovanaxel: i don't use KDE, but what do you mean by the cashe of konqueror?04:17
nickrudmadagascar sudo dpkg -r --force-remove-reinstreq <pkgname>04:17
bazhangaxel: I know this wont help now, but what I generally do is type it in open office and auto save then cut and paste it to whatever I am writing online--that way the web wiki messups are alleviated a bit04:17
madagascarthanks nickrud, i'll try it04:17
bazhangmadagascar: this is gutsy or hardy04:17
madagascarthis is an ubuntu question04:18
nickrudmadagascar mostly works, if it says reinstall required in the error message04:18
bazhangmadagascar: if it is hardy then the other channel04:18
nickrud#ubuntu+1 is handling hardy questions until release,  /j #ubuntu+1 madagascar if that doesn't fix it04:19
madagascari think the help i need is version non-specific04:19
Ashfire908amenado, path is not needed when i give it the path (./), but adding ./ to PATH does nothing04:19
nickrudmadagascar I understand that, but the package you have problems with is hardy specific, it might very well be a known hardy issue04:19
axelbazhang: Thanks for the hint.04:20
spredais there a 64 bit ubuntu channel?04:20
Izhow can update gnome?04:20
luckylini have a silly noob question but here goes, i'm all out of CD-r's but i have 100 DVD-R's so will a DVD-R work for burning ubuntu (probably does sorry to ask)04:20
bazhangsorry to be of immediate help axel; I have had that happen and know how much it stinks04:21
bazhangerr not04:21
Starnestommyspreda: this channel is for 32-bit and 64-bit04:21
nickrudIz you would have to compile gnome to upgrade it in a release, the new version is released with each new ubuntu release04:21
vocxluckylin, if you have that many you only need to burn ONE to try out? man do you really need to ask a question like this one?04:21
bazhangluckylin: sure no problem04:21
climatewarrior yes if you have a dvd burner you can do that04:21
climatewarriorthere's even a dvd version of ubuntu04:21
axelsjovan: I don't mean the history of browsed URLs, but the "buffer" (Zwischenspeicher in German).04:22
amenadoAshfire908-> what does ./rtvm2.py supposed to do?04:22
luckylinthanks (yes i have a dvd/cd burner)04:22
bazhangluckylin: then you are good to go04:22
Izi think i will need this cause the ubuntu i just installed was downloaded a time ago.. i got ubuntu 7.04 the feisty fawn and gnome v. 2.1804:22
tyTrying to open qparted and getting this error "Failed to execute child process "qtparted-root" (No such file or directory)"04:22
Izarent there new versions so far?04:23
luckylinok one more retarded question04:23
luckylincan you put more then one ISO on a dvd and have like a dual boot iso04:23
luckylinlike ubuntu and suse04:23
vocxIz, to get the latest you need a new Ubuntu version. After that, there are no updates, unless there is a security patch.04:23
bazhangluckylin: no; it is an image so it leaves no free space--not a data disk04:24
luckylinoh.just thought i'de ask04:24
climatewarriorluckylin, as far as I know, no you cant do that04:24
Izthat means i have to downlaod the new ubuntu version burn in and reinstall ? or can i somehow upgrade ubuntu?04:24
nickrudIz 2.20 came with 7.10, and 2.22 will come with 8.0404:24
Dr_willisluckylin,  ive seen some live-cd-dvds that do that.. but they dont do it quite that way04:24
vocxluckylin, That would be complicated. Probably would be possible to merge the two distros so they would still be one ISO, but sounds very strange indeed.04:24
luckylinyeah i noticed all iso's say zero free space even though they aren't as big as CD-R's04:24
bazhanglz that is up to you; you can net upgrade or do a fresh install04:24
DistroJockeyluckylin: is possible, but not a question for here. You would need to edit the iso I assume04:25
Izi prefer net upgrade :) how is this possible?04:25
StPatrickamenado,  I'm back. Fresh install.04:25
bazhanglz from feisty to gutsy?04:25
vocxIz, yes, you can upgrade ubuntu from the net. But you have to upgrade the entire distro, not just gnome, so it may need to download 1 GB.04:25
nickrud!upgrade | Iz04:26
ubotuIz: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes04:26
bazhanglz also dont do this on dialup ;]04:26
amenadoStPatrick-> paste your ifconfig; iwconfig; route -n04:26
nickrudbazhang you are silly ;)04:27
StPatrickamenado,  is that one solid command?04:27
vocxamenado, since I feel it's gonna take a while, I suggest you two move to private messages or a private channel.04:27
StPatrickamenado,  Im in #HelpStPat04:28
Izthx guys :) i just upgrating:)04:29
sjovanaxel: no sorry mate, i can't help you.04:29
M4rotkucan i upgrade to the hardy beta without install all of the other updates for gusty?04:30
iceswordM4rotku, unless you uninstall them04:30
nickrudM4rotku not advised, you should be totally up to date in gutsy before upgrading to hardy04:30
M4rotkunickrud: the reason i want to is because an update package that i installed in the past wiped out my wireless card configs and i had to reinstall everything, that's why i have to upgrade again in the first place04:31
nickrudM4rotku you could try, but the results are undefined04:32
tonyyarussoM4rotku: Hardy questions should go in #ubuntu+1 btw - they'll be able to give you more detail.04:32
Legendariohi. can anyone give me some help with the gfxboot? I tried to install it, but my boot doesn't show anything?04:32
M4rotkutonyyarusso, thanks, i'll try that channel04:32
crumbymJust checking things out..04:34
pierreluxI'm struggling to get ubuntu running on my macbook pro v4.1 ... first tried with 7.10 with the livedcd then the alternate but its failed to install grub or lilo. Now with hardy, black screen... nothings appening04:34
crumbymnikki try this website: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookPro04:35
nikki8965My linux keeps rebooting.  Do I need to reinstall?  It's only on 5 gigs of drive space, because I was stupid, and didn't size my partitions when installing04:35
emmamaybe someone could help you with gparted04:36
jimis parted the thing used by the installer to do partitioning?04:37
nikki8965I tried to use it, but it won't let me resize my windows partition04:37
pierreluxcrumbym: if this was for me... obviously, I checked it first04:37
jimnikki8965: ntfs?\04:37
nikki8965yeah04:37
jimthat's harder04:37
crumbymnikki have you tried this one: http://kahvipapu.com/blog/2007/12/29/liberating-macbook-pro/04:38
bumpin4hi all04:38
jimit'd be easier to find a spare hd04:38
nikki8965Ok.  I have an external HD that I need to dig out of a box04:38
crumbymnikki I have Linux installed on my MacBook Pro.. There were some settings on that last hotlink that will help yoj.04:39
jimnikki8965: does it have stuff you need?04:39
Jordan_Upierrelux, Have you seen this guide ( for V3 ) https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MacBookPro/SantaRosa ?04:39
jimor can you wipe it with no worries?04:39
nikki8965It has stuff I need04:39
earl_hey guys. i'm wondering if there is any sort of sega genesis (or ideally, sega cd) emulator available for ubuntu.04:39
jimhmm.04:39
pierreluxJordan_U: thanks but I already went over it... it seems now that I can boot in safe graphic mode with the 8.04 installer04:40
jimnikki8965: how many partitions and what kind?04:40
Jordan_Upierrelux, Then you get an error when installing Grub?04:40
jimdoes ubuntu use lvm by default?04:40
nikki8965just one partition that I can think of.  It's something I got from walmart04:40
Jordan_Ujim, No04:41
crumbymjim No04:41
crumbymJim it uses Ext304:41
bazhanghttp://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=451647 earl_04:41
izinucsjim, you only get lvm on the alternate cd04:41
emmaearl_,  -- http://www.squish.net/generator/description.html04:41
izinucscrumbym, lvm is not a file system type.. it's a partitioning type of thing04:42
bazhangpierrelux: hardy? that should be discussed in #ubuntu+1 thanks04:42
jimI'm understanding that ubuntu is changing how it's related to debian in terms of its content... are they also changing how they obtain software (snapshot of debian sid)?04:42
earl_thanks!04:42
StPatrickjim,  Wanna have a go at my wireless now?04:42
izinucsnikki8965, did you get the $200 gOS?04:42
crumbymiz - I know, I was letting him know what the default partion format was04:42
crumbymLVM is Logical Volume04:43
sjovanhey, any of you know of a dc++ clone for linux? maby something that is in the rep?04:43
Jordan_Ujim, What do you mean by "ubuntu is changing how it's related to debian in terms of its content" ?04:43
pierreluxbazhang: this is a general question... nothing specific about hardy. I first wanted to use the stable 7.1004:43
jimlet me see if I can remember closer... I heard that ubuntu had different design values than debian...04:43
bazhangpierrelux: what system are you running now?04:43
jimany truth to that? have those values changed recently?04:44
nikki8965no.  I paid like $80 for it.  It has 'sea' in the name of it.  I'm trying to google it04:44
jimseagate?04:44
level09how can I detect the full path to some directory ?04:44
nikki8965yep.  seagate04:44
jimcd there, pwd04:44
pierreluxbazhang: not running ubuntu yet... I'm still trying to install ubuntu completely04:44
level09pwd ?04:44
crumbympwd04:44
level09ok thanks :)04:45
jimman pwd for details04:45
bazhangpierrelux: what issues are you having installing gutsy04:45
earl_this generator... won't emulate segacd, will it?04:45
pierreluxbazhang: it failed to install grub or lilo04:45
izinucsnikki8965, a seagate computer?  they make harddrives.. is it a laptop or desktop?04:45
level09great :)04:45
crumbymlevel09 - you might like whereis as well04:45
jimpwd gives you the fully qualified path name to the dir you're in04:45
level09i'm actually staring to like linux :D04:45
level09that's what I want, I'm installing some complicated crm04:45
nikki8965It's an external harddrive.  It hooks up to a computer using a usb cord04:45
Jordan_Ujim, Not that I have heard, the main design differences are that Ubuntu limits the architectures it supports and focuses on the Desktop, also they are more lenient with "non-free" software ( they include Firefox by default still instead of iceweasel and allow easy installation of proprietary drivers )04:45
jimstop staring! it's embarrisin!04:46
crumbymAnyone have suggestions on a good screen capture besides gtk-recordmydesktop?04:46
bazhangpierrelux: this was from the livecd or what? ubuntu or ubuntu-based; what errors are you getting please be precise04:46
nikki8965But, I could partitionit, and install ubuntu?04:46
jimStPatrick: maybe after awhile04:46
jimoh, oops04:46
jimnikki8965: you -could-04:47
izinucsnikki8965, yes..  however installing on an external HD requires some finesse. there are how to's on ubuntuforums.org and elsewhere on the web..04:47
level09what does sudo command actually do ?04:47
pierreluxbazhang: I was unable to use the livecd (staled with low-graphics mode) so I tried with the alternate (64 bits)04:47
jimbut you'd lose the drive unless you back it up04:47
izinucsnikki8965, why not just install in on your desktop HD?04:47
jimizinucs: how would he resize an ntfs04:47
earl_level09: some linux distributions make you log in as "root", meaning the computer administrator, to have more permission to do stuff04:47
bazhangpierrelux: if you give precise info error we can troubleshoot, otherwise...04:47
earl_level09: sudo'ing something gives you that level of access temporarily, and asks for your password04:48
nikki8965I don't have a destop04:48
Jordan_Ubazhang, Try choosing to have the installer *not* install Grub ( so the install does not fail ) then install it manually yourself ( this is what I had to do with my macbook pro back before Grub support for Apples BIOS emulation was as good )04:48
crumbymlevel09 - you can also use su04:48
pierreluxbazhang: no special messages except a red screen with a popup saying it failed to install grub... then the same with lilo (I did not try to install on MBR to mess with refit)04:48
nikki8965just a laptop04:48
level09earl_: thanks ! very helpful04:48
jimyou should be able to (build and) install su and/or sudo on any linux dist... no one's forcing anything04:48
level09so no need for sudo if i'm a root user04:48
izinucsjim, on install you'll be able to resize04:48
earl_level09: don't be a root user04:48
level09why ?04:48
earl_level09: do you leave your doors open?04:48
crumbymlevel09 = ROOT BAD!04:49
earl_it's easier to get in and out of your house that way, so it seems like a good idea, right?04:49
jimlevel09: that is a long story with some points of charge associated04:49
jimever run dos?04:49
level09sure, but how is that ? I'm using a secure private key04:49
earl_thing is, jack the ripper also gets into your house just as easily. so it's not.04:49
izinucsnikki8965, how does the live cd run on it.?  wireless work?04:49
Jordan_Ulevel09, But if your web browser is compromised it can do whatever it wants to your system04:49
cjzjm100Are the softwares of the LTS release  in the repo  in-sync with the the other release(not the LTS release)?04:50
bazhanglevel09: irc on root? hahaha04:50
level09I'm on putty client04:50
nickrudcjzjm100 no, they are substantially older, except for security fixes and a few backports04:50
Jordan_Ulevel09, Doesn't matter what authentication you use to get root privileges, if you are running applications unnecessarily as root you are at risk.04:50
level09how to disable root login ?04:50
izinucsnickrud, unless he's talking about hardy04:50
level09and how do I get back if I disabled it :D04:51
jimlevel09: one thing, if you're not too familiar with the reasons for that, conventional wisdom suggests it's a bad idea...04:51
nickrudizinucs true, but context leads me to think of dapper04:51
bazhanglevel09: uh oh04:51
jimlevel09: also not good idea04:52
TehMwakanyone run 7.10 and have a X2300?04:52
level09jim: what ?04:52
whisperkillerhow do i get the chipset of my cardbus wireless card?04:52
earl_level09: basically, if you don't need to be root to do something, which is almost always the case unless it's something that could potentially damage your computer, don't be root04:52
izinucswhisperkiller, lspci in terminal I think04:52
bazhangusb whisperkiller? lsusb04:53
jimlevel09: it's not a good idea to disable the root acct, you'll need it to fix things (for one)04:53
bazhangwhisperkiller: pci is lspci04:53
whisperkillercardbus04:53
level09okay I'm convinced :D , what steps should I do now ?04:53
level09just switch to normal user ?04:53
bazhanglevel09: check for rootkits04:53
jimlevel09: let me just ask this before we get further... do you have stuff you want to keep on the machine you're being root on?04:53
level09I used a normal user , but I kept getting permission denied errors04:53
Jordan_Ulevel09, That's where you use sudo04:54
level09jim: i dont know, I'm running a lamp server04:54
jimstated another way... what if the hd of that machine were wiped? would that be a disaster?04:54
nikki8965wireless works, and the live cd works04:54
zerohi, when i try to install C&C in cedega, it says i need administrator rights to install, im the ONLY user, how can i fix this?04:54
level09sure04:55
jimare you just fooling around with lamp? or is it a production box?04:55

izinucsnikki8965, then you could put it directy on the HD if you want04:55

luciddreamhi, i'm trying to setup an svn server using the standalone svnserve daemon.  I think I may be misunderstanding how permissions work because I get permission denied errors even though I think I've assigned rw permissions to the svn user that the svn daemon runs as: http://pastie.caboo.se/175956  can someone take a look and tell me if i'm doing something dumb?05:00
TheOneAndOnlyzero, if you run it from the terminal, do you get any other output from the terminal other than a permission problem? ie - maybe the file itself needs permissions changed?05:00
level09should I install them , or are they already in core ?05:00
TheOneAndOnlylevel09, gedit as well as abiword do, there are others for specific languages as well05:00

Bax_ubuntu fiesty: how do I find a file a just downloaded and installed through Synaptic?05:11
Bax_*I05:11
Mashandarit doesn't look like there's a linux driver for RTL8187B yet05:11
bazhangBax_: what file05:11
Mashandarthere's a windows and mac driver...no linux driver05:11
Bax_bazhang: bittornado05:11
StPatrickFor all those interested in trying to keep me in Linux, Here's a heads up on what's happened.  Toshiba A205-S5800. Realtek RTL8187b Wifi Card. Works fine in Vista. Mandriva, PCLinuxOS, Suse, all see card, but can't get it to work in them, Ubuntu ( currently running ) Doesnt even see card.05:11
StPatrickI have tried :05:11
vadilloStPatrick: check this one http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/wireless-internet/118266-realtek-rtl8187b-help.html05:12
Dr_willisBax_,  'which bittorrnado' or whatever the command is to run it05:12
michael__Stpatrick: you have to help me help you buddy do you have the windows driver on hand?05:12
StPatrickndiswrapper with about 30 different drivers, compiling drivers, using hacked drivers,  ^ That link, Several other links, 10 - 15 different walk-throughs.05:12
StPatrickmichael__,  I do not., I just finished formatting again05:12
Bax_Dr_willis: I can literally type that in the terminal?05:12
bazhangBax_: bittornado is in the ubuntu repos?05:12
TehMwak... stpatrick : get a cheep supported wifi card. Problem solved!05:12
StPatrickTehMwak,  That is nto an option.05:12
jimStPatrick: I'm more interested in having you choose what you want to run. If you're not willing to do that, you're not committing, and I expect more miracle requests from you as a result05:12
michael__Stpatrick i went through the same thing i have a card that uses the bcm43xx and unsupported driver05:13
bazhang!info bittornado05:13
Dr_willisBax_,  bash basics.. the which command shows the full path to the command you are running/asking about.05:13
ubotubittornado (source: bittornado): bittorrent client with enhanced curses interface. In component main, is optional. Version 0.3.18-4 (gutsy), package size 155 kB, installed size 876 kB05:13
Dr_willisBax_,  try 'which which' :)05:13
StPatrickjim,  I prefer Mandriva.05:13
jimuse that :)05:13
StPatrickjim,   Cant get any support05:13
michael__Stpatrick:whats the name of the driver your card uses?05:13
SegFault[AX]izinucs: irssi says it cant' connect to irc.thelinuxshow.org on 6667,  is it on a different port?05:13
StPatrickmichael__,  I have no idea. Drivers have names?05:13
Dr_willisBax_,  now if you want to know where in the menus that icon went.. no idea on that.05:13
ShpookHello everyone, quick question: How do I get the Home Folder onto the desktop?05:13
Bax_Dr_willis: but I don't know what the command is for bittornado, I just know that it was the name of the program I downloaded and installed through synaptic05:13
StPatrickmichael__,  The difference between you going through it, and me, is that I am not a computer guy.l05:14
vadilloStPatrick: also this one--> http://www.datanorth.net/~cuervo/rtl8187b/05:14
StPatrickmichael__,  I do not know much about computers, at all.05:14
Dr_willisBax_,  try 'bittornado' ? thats the most logical command for it.05:14
StPatrickvadillo,  Yea, that one's fun...05:14
michael__Stpatrick: yes like the name of mine is bcmwl5.sys (im not either i came into this not knowing anything) so im gonna help you out05:14
ShpookOops, on KDE I mean.05:14
SegFault[AX]Shpook: ln -s $HOME $HOME/Desktop/Home05:14
StPatrickmichael__,  Ok :) I'm glad to hear it.05:14
michael__Stpatrick: so we have to find the driver for your card eh05:14
StPatrickmichael__,  Care to meet m e in a different channel?05:14
vadilloStPatrick what did you mean with fun?05:14
StPatricksay.. #HelpStPat?05:14
michael__Stpatrick: sure just lemme know the name buddy05:15
Bax_Dr_willis: I did, with just the name, with ./, and with "which".  Still got nothing05:15
StPatrickvadillo,  I mean i did it.05:15
hansinShould I be using 'aptitude' vs. 'apt-get'?  I am trying to get in the habit of switching to it.  I keep seeing 'aptitude' is the way to go, but maybe this is a personal preference thing?  I like to install Ubuntu as the Minimal CLI install from the alternative CD.  Does anyone know if the installer uses 'aptitude' or 'apt-get', or is it lower level than that (dpkg?)?  Thanks.05:15
DmoleBax_: bittornado works but try transmition (gui) or rtorrent (cli)05:15
level09is it bad also to use sftp as a root ?05:15
ShpookSegFault[AX]: Thank, that worked perfect.05:15
jimmaybe05:15
Bax_Dmole: I05:15
ShpookThanks*05:15
vadilloStPatrick: also the other one link05:16
TheOneAndOnlylevel09, only if you don't care about your system's security :p05:16
SegFault[AX]Shpook: no problem05:16
level09TheOneAndOnly: I cant upload files with a regular user, theres no permissions05:16
Bax_Dmole: I'm just trying to figure out how to find and access programs I just downloaded through synaptic, like bittorando05:16
Dr_willis!find bittornado05:16
ubotuFound: bittornado, bittornado-gui05:16
HellowHello05:16
Alan_Mhansin, it has both on it.....and yes its personal preference honestly.05:16
level09I'm using filezilla05:16
ifireballBax_: you probably want "btdownloadgui"05:16
ifireballBax_: type bt<tab> to see other commands installed by bittornado05:17
DmoleBax_: that will be in the menu under internet05:17
michael__Stpatrick: the way i did mine was quite simple actually all we have to do is find something to extract the firmware from your driver and well put it in the correct spots reboot and bam youl be good05:17
TheOneAndOnlylevel09, hm, you should go in and set the file permissions as root, and then use sftp as a regular user05:17
DeVonneI still can't find or see my dvd/cd drive05:17
DmoleBax_: and like ifireball said ta is your frend05:17
amirman84what language do people use to write programs and GUIs for ubuntu? i may want to take a class on it05:17
level09TheOneAndOnly: okay thnx05:17
ifireballBax_: to see all the files installed by a package "dpkg -L bittornado"05:17
TheOneAndOnlyDeVonne, do you know what type of hardware you cd/dvd drive is?05:17
amirman84all i know is BASIC :)05:18
DeVonneit came with the emachine so I do not know05:18
Alan_Mamirman84: there are multiple languages that help out in that area :)05:18
ifireballBax_: (though the list of file may not provide much info as to how to use it)05:18
TheOneAndOnlyamirman84, C#, and C++, Python, and Perl...05:18
Starnestommyamirman84: there are several languages that can do that. C, C++, Java, Perl, Python, Ruby, PHP, and a lot of others05:18
TheOneAndOnlyamirman84, we use them all05:18
Dr_willisBax_,  aparanty its 'bt<SOMTHING>'05:18
TheOneAndOnlyStarnestommy, PHP and Ruby can be used, but they are mostly for web development.05:18
Dr_willisBax_,  /usr/bin/btdownloadgui.bittornado05:18
Bax_ifireball: so btdownloadgui is a general command to fetch programs I just downloaded?05:19
StPatrickmichael__,  Sounds good to me man. Come to #HelpStPat?05:19
thundr2TheOneAndOnly: Is there a language that is used the most commonly?05:19
amirman84ok, i was just wondering because i see that there's a niche to be filled most specifically apps for young kids05:19
hansinAlan_M: Thanks.  I know the minimal CLI install include both, but do you have any idea what the text-based installer uses?  Just curious.  Like I said, maybe it is lower level than either 'apt-get' or 'aptitude'??05:19
DeVonneok I have found it05:19
ifireballBax_: no that's the command installed by the bittornado package05:19
DeVonnehttp://www.impactcomputers.com/dvem100686rw.html05:19
TheOneAndOnlythundr2, the kernel is in C#, but C++ is used commonly for apps. Python for gui apps is very common :]05:19
amirman84my son is 2 1/2 and i was looking for some packages that could help him learn to use the mouse and stuff all i found was kletters and tuxpaint05:19
DeVonnethis is the hardware05:19
michael__stpatrick: ok im in there05:20
thundr2TheOneAndOnly: Thanks :)05:20
amirman84what language would be best for simple apps like that?05:20
StPatrickmichael__,  Uhh  How? So am i... lol05:20
TheOneAndOnlythundr2, np :]05:20
Alan_Mhansin, no idea exactly what it uses, most probably apt-get because thats what we tell users in here to use, from what ive seen its the more common one in here :D05:20
Dr_willisamirman84,  python is handy.05:20
DeVonneTheOneAndOnly: , http://www.impactcomputers.com/dvem100686rw.html05:20
TheOneAndOnlyamirman84, i'd go with python05:20
TheOneAndOnlyDeVonne, i saw the link, ty :] i'm reading it now05:20
Alan_Mpython :D05:20
DeVonneok thanks05:20
amirman84awesome i hope my college has a class on it05:21
Alan_Mamirman84, and if not there are PLENTY of guides online for it.05:21
TheOneAndOnlyamirman84, most colleges, even community, have some class for Python, but it will include other langs as well05:21
level09making a directory writable by a webserver, does this mean 755 or 777?05:21
steven__I am using the Darklooks theme for Gnome and now Firefox is displaying Text Boxes with dark colored background. Does anyone know how to change this?05:21
Dr_willislevel09,  both are a little overkill.05:21
level09what do u suggest :) ?05:22
Dr_willislevel09,  the dir  could just be owned by the webserver, and you wouldent need those modes05:22
dibblegohow can I run a script on login?05:22
passbedoes anyone else have problems extracting a multiple part rar file ?05:22
TheOneAndOnlylevel09, 777 will give everyone read write access, 755 will give owner read write, everyone else read only05:22
Dr_willisdibblego,  depends on the window manager. Kde has .kde/Autostart Directory. Gnome has the session management features05:22
hansinAlan_M: Thanks for the help/info.05:22
vadillodibblego: what distro are you are using?05:22
dibblegoDr_willis, I am using GNOME05:22
zmi ask a question05:22
Dr_willisdibblego,  what program anyway?05:22
level09how do I make it owned by webserver ?05:22
Hellowdibleggo, go to System - Preferences - Sessons for gnome05:22
Alan_Mhansin, its what were here for :)05:23
dibblegoDr_willis, mozilla lightning05:23
dibblegoHellow, great thanks05:23
thundr2amirman84: I can't vouch for the quality because I haven't read it, but this might be a good starting point for learning Python: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Python05:23
TheOneAndOnlyeveryone, it's nice to see everyone getting so much help tonight :]05:23
Dr_willisdibblego,  start the program, save the session. it should autostart i think.05:23
zmwhy can't firefox install the flash player plugin?05:23
TheOneAndOnlythundr2, that is actually an excellent link, it's where i began05:23

Dr_williszm,  because one normally installs flash from the package maanger tool.05:23
Alan_MTheoneandonly, yeah awesome when there arent fights :)05:23
Dr_willis!flash | zm05:23
ubotuzm: To install Flash see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Flash (for !Dapper and !Edgy, a recent version is available in !backports) - See also !Restricted and !Gnash05:23
vadillozm: 32 or 64 system?05:23
TheOneAndOnlyAlan_M, haha, not even fights, it's nice to see that no one is flooding the room w. the same question this evening - lol05:24

TheOneAndOnlyzm, sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree05:24
zmyeah05:24
penTheOneAndOnly: just use add/remove05:24
penTheOneAndOnly: it's so  much easier05:25
TheOneAndOnlypen, that too :]05:25
MannexI am using the Darklooks theme for Gnome and now Firefox is displaying Text Boxes with dark colored background. Does anyone know how to change this?05:25
HellowYowshi: have you already deleted it or is it just in the trash?05:25
michael__anyone else having wireless troubles?05:25
Yowshijust in the trash Hellow05:25
TheOneAndOnlyMannex, go into the appearance settings, and change the colors for your theme, should correct the issue, but will change the colors for everything else accordingly05:25
amirman84michael_ : i've been there with wireless troubles05:26
HellowYowshi: hold on05:26
michael__yeah im trying to help some people out05:26
michael__it was a complete hassle to get mine working05:26
zmmust i quit firefox first?05:26
TheOneAndOnlyzm, no, but you need to restart after the install05:26
HellowYowshi: right click and press "Restore"05:26
Starnestommyzm: that would be a good idea05:26
zmok```now im installing05:27
zmthank you05:27
DeVonneTheOneAndOnly: have you read it? :)05:27
YowshiHellow there is no restore button05:27

iceswordthen you get online05:27
amirman84but i would like to eventually install it on a dedicated partition so i'll have to figure out the wireless stuff eventually05:27
amirman84michael_: i believe it's broadcom05:28
amirman84i use the dell drivers on my windows machine05:28
DeVonneTheOneAndOnly: do you know what is wrong?05:28
thundr2Yowshi: You should be able to just drag and drop the files to whichever folder you want them in.05:28
TheOneAndOnlyDeVonne, i'm checking into it...05:28
michael__amirman84: no shit garuntee i get it working in less than 20 min05:28
TheOneAndOnlygoogle's not turning up much...05:28
DeVonneok thank you05:28
Yowshithundr2: i dont recall where they came from05:28
amirman84really?05:28
michael__amirman84: your using the bcm43xx driver in ubuntu right?05:29
Yowshithundr2: i was cleaning out some rythm box list and clicked move to trash instead of remove05:29
MannexTheOneAndOnly, thank you05:29
amirman84i think that's the one it installed when i was using linux mint so probably05:29
HellowYowshi: idk, im going to make a suggestion that they include a "Restore" function in the next release of Ubuntu05:29
amirman84it doesnt work at all though05:29
michael__amirman84: i use a broadcom card myself =P i have a way that worked for me if you wanna try it out ??05:29
TheOneAndOnlyMannex, for what exactly? heh05:29
michael__amirman84: mine didnt either05:29
amirman84well i could do it right now since i'm on a vm05:29
MannexTheOneAndOnly, lol your suggestion regarding a previous question... nVm ;-)05:30
thundr2Yowshi: It probably came from your Home directory.  Under a directory like /.rhythmbox05:30
amirman84but i would love to know how to do it05:30
TheOneAndOnlyMannex, as long as your issue got resolved, i'm happy i could help :]05:30
amirman84do you use NDISwrapper?05:30
pierreluxbazhang: just to tell you it worked with hardy. i don't know what was wrong. maybe a wrong partitioning05:30
ntoridoHow can i make a back up in ubuntu?05:30
michael__amirman84: allright lemme see if i can find the link if not you wouldnt mind if i sent you some things would you ?05:30
amirman84not at all05:30
Yowshithundr2: no i told it to import the entire home folder i thought it would only import sound files but it seems not05:30
Bax_in the terminal, after executing something and nothing happens, How do I exit or get that program to quit so I can return to the command line?05:30
amirman84how would you send it?05:31
StarnestommyBax_: Ctrl+C05:31
TheOneAndOnlyntorido, a back up of what exactly?05:31
michael__amirman84: ok because i have saved to a folder for when i update but i think it should work for you do you have a copy of your driver?05:31
ntoridoA folder05:31
michael__amirman84: like this05:31
amirman84the windows driver?05:32
TheOneAndOnlyDeVonne, i'm not seeing much on google... sry =/05:32
michael__amirman84: yes05:32
amirman84forgive my noobiness05:32
ntoridoTheOneAndOnly,A folder.05:32
DeVonneok :( thanks anyways05:32
amirman84i can get a copy really quick from the dell website but it's a dell driver05:32
TheOneAndOnlyntorido, i'd say archive it using bzip...05:32
amirman84it's branded with dell's name so i guess they made their own driver for the card05:32
thundr2Yowshi: There should be a way to find out where it came from, perhaps by changing the view of the trash folder.  I don't have Ubuntu running right now, so I can only be of limited help, sorry.05:32
michael__amirman84: hey im a newb to wanna go to a seperate channel or do you mind if i message you pruvatley05:32
Bax_so let me get this straight, everything in the /usr/bin are all the commands I can use in any other directory, right?05:32

Gneaok, i just had something weird happen - i had my desktop in the locked-phase with the screensaver on. when i sat back down to unlock it, it *looked* like the screensaver crashed and i was presented with the standard login screen (as if to denote switching users, since i could still hear xmms pumping tunes through the speakers). upon being presented with the gnome-ish desktop, i found that my mouse cursor no longer appears over firefox o05:42

Delson?06:00
gogetaRedScare acpi probly runs the fans slower06:01
AngryBaconDelson: Rule number X of irc, don't ask to ask, just ask06:01
RedScarei get more noise typically as well though gogeta06:01
RedScareits very odd06:01
ZeltaDo you guys mind if I ask a question about asking a question about an issue I'm having regarding the asking of questions?06:01
TheOneAndOnlyRedScare, that's exactly it. that is the lowest freq these processors will run at, any lower (you could hack around it) and you would notice major system issues06:01
gogetaRedScare naa its turning em up then back down06:01
RedScarefrom what little I've read 8.04 beta has better power management06:02
TheOneAndOnlyRedScare, that noise you hear is the fan kicking on, there are ways to get them to not kick on until certain temps though06:02
Delsonwell u know how windows has like a grid so to speak for desktop icons....can i get ubuntu to have a more organized grid06:02
Delsonand iwanna make all the icons smaller06:02
thundr2RedScare: Is the CPU load similar between Ubuntu and Vista?06:02
gogetaTheOneAndOnly he can kill acpi and let the bios handel it or just let em run at 100%06:03
bobcI'm trying to install a new hard drive in my system which will replace my existing drive and I'm having a problem with installing grub. grub-install /dev/sdb returns /dev/evms/hda1 does not have any corresponding BIOS drive. Can anyone help me make sense of this?06:03
[Rocc]Um, did i get a answer, sorry ive been eating06:03
AngryBacon[Rocc]: scroll up06:03
izinucsthundr2, no Vista is much hungrier06:03
RedScareCPU load is similar06:03
sjovandonkey7186: btw... you don't need a plugin. you can add radiostations by default. or are you thinking about picking up signals from the air?06:03
DeVonneDoes anyone know why when I put in a cd it can't read it? says there is no media06:03
gogetaRedScare yea its just your fans running diffrently06:03
donkey7186sjovan im trying to add a radio station. but when i try and add it it isnt working06:04
gogetaRedScare as long as its not hitting danger levels i wouldent worry06:04
hellonulldelson: i'm pretty sure it is more of a matter of configuring your desktop environment, not necessarily ubuntu06:04
RedScareI'm not too worried about the heat06:04
sjovandonkey7186: so, do you get some kinde of error?06:04
RedScareits simply that I bought this because it ran sooo cool in my lap06:04
TheOneAndOnlyRedScare, if you're on battery power, you can run powertop to increase batter life06:04
donkey7186sjovanyea says that its not supported and a plugin may need to be installed06:04
RedScareas opposed to my AMD X2 6406:04

penTheOneAndOnly: no increase in power06:05
DeVonneDoes anyone know why when I put in a cd it can't read it? says there is no media06:05
gogetaRedScare hence more heat06:05
thundr2Delson: I know that the icons (on the desktop at least) are able to be stretched and zoomed to whatever size you want, or do you want all icons throughout Ubuntu to look like that?06:05
penDeVonne: what ? Audio CD?06:05
DeVonnegame cd06:05
hellonullDeVonne: have you tried manually mounting it?06:05
gogetaRedScare you can adjust the settings if you wish06:05

donkey7186well if i give you the website can you try?06:06
kenboosomeone compiled for Debian but couldn't find it for Ubuntu06:06
gogetaRedScare set the temp thresh hold lower so the fans will cool it more06:06

Delsonuniform06:06
gogetaRedScare but you lose battery life06:06
AngryBaconwouldn't the debian one work?06:06
RedScaredoesn't make sense why there's not a closer solution06:07
RedScareon my HP my battery with vista runs around 1.45, on my gateway with core 2 on vista I get up to 3.5 hours very easily06:07
TheOneAndOnlypen, it will usually give you a small amount more, some systems it won't... mine it gave me 30 more mins06:07
RedScareon ubuntu 2 if I'm lucky06:07
thundr2Delson: To do that on the desktop, you just right click the icon and go to stretch icon.  To do that for all of them, one second I'm checking06:07
gogetaRedScare well you can turn off acpi but then they will run at 100% all the time prosser and fans06:07
gogetaRedScare you willlose alot of batery power06:08
TheOneAndOnlypen, you would also need to run it as sudo06:08

DeVonneif I boot the live cd and it works, then what do you recommend?06:14
donkey7186well how do i do that06:15

reconN3WFI3: the ubuntu installer has a "guided partitioning" in which you select the second hard drive, and it automatically sets everything up for you, including the dual-boot.07:09

NickRiversN3WFI3: it will setup a non-3d accelerated driver for your nvidia during install and then once you boot into your system you can install the proprietary nvidia driver07:13
reconN3WFI3: it'll auto-detect. You'll also see a "restricted drivers" thing when you first boot. That is the wizard that installs proprietary drivers.07:13
jimDeVonne: what does linux think your cd is? /dev/what?07:14
