AxioplaseBSG75: I don't know if it was a joke, but no. It happens from the very boot time. Gnome itself takes several minutes to launch after I log in from gdm.00:41
webtoeAxioplase: vi should be pretty nippy. Emacs is always a bit slower. What amoutn of RAM and what graphics card. Are you starting the console version of the graphical version of the programmes?00:42
daedrado you need a crossover cable or a straightthrough cable to connect two computers via ethernet?00:42
BSG75elmer: good luck .. I knwo it's there .. I just dealt with the same annoying thing00:42
webtoemax_: yes :P If you're using gutsy etc then this could be a firefox problem (if in doubt, blame firefox memory leaks)00:42
daedraand what do you need to do on each computer to share internet?00:42
zaemisis there a way to view reverse dependencies?  like, which packages installed on the system require on a given package?00:42
Axioplasewebtoe: I run FBSD on that same laptop, and vi/emacs run within microseconds. I have an integrated intel graphic card00:42
gilster32i have some issues with a particualr process, 'evolution-data-server' it occasionally load processort to 97-98% and stays there, anyone experience this?00:43
tahlvinHow do I delete a user and their home directory at the same time?00:43
elmerBSG75, Yeah. It's kind of cryptic in this thing. I have no clue what one it is...00:43
BSG75axioplase: it was a joke and wasn't .. but if you are having that issue from boot .. try hdparm and check things out from there00:43
nickruddaedra crossover between, and set up forwarding on the one directly connected (firestarter can do that for you)00:43
BSG75elmer: LOL I hear ya00:43
BarryToemantahlvin: userdel -r username00:44
geniitahlvin: sudo deluser --remove-home username00:44
daedranickrud: is firestarter a front end for iptables/netfilter00:44
BarryToemani win00:44
Axioplasewebtoe: running vi from console is immediate though (but emacs still isn't)00:44
nickrudgilster32 do you use evolution mail? if not, remove the package evolution data server and the rest of evolution00:44
nickruddaedra yes00:44
AxioplaseI guess it's related to some X crap, and that those apps wait for an event or something...00:44
BSG75I am trying to figure out how to minimize thunderbird to the bloody tray .. I refuse to believe that they wrote an awesome app like tb and didn't put in minimize to tray option .. hell even nagwares that I don't want does that00:44
webtoeaxiplase: emacs never is. It depemnds on what lisp files it decides to compile when it starts. Mine is dog slow which is a pain in the arse00:45
gilster32nickrud: no i actually dont use it  at all. i was just wandering why it would be on to begin with. and why it goes into these high power processor mode00:45
Axioplasewebtoe: 10s for a fresh install of emacs ? you must be joking.00:45
nickrudgilster32 bug00:45
elmerBSG75, do you know if it's caused by an effect or what?00:45
webtoemax_: its hard to diagnose without compiling with source and tracing. Do yo know what programmes you're using a lot of ? firefox? flash?00:45
McGodGuys, How do I re-install NetworkManager w.o any internet00:45
BSG75axioplase: what does "top" say? are you running something that's hogging process?00:45
daedranickrud: wow - that is so much simpler than ubuntu!00:45
daedraIts working :D00:46
McGodlast resprt is reinstall00:46
daedranickrud: I mean *windows00:46
webtoeAxioplase: it depends on RAM, whether you're doing the GTK version or not00:46
BSG75elmer: looking00:46
nickrudBSG75 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/211000:46
elmerthanks BSG7500:46
Axioplasewebtoe: a few deskbar applets. not more. Nothing terrble in top00:47
BSG75nickrud: I found that .. but it doesn't have a download link00:47
McGodHow do I install NetworkManager from the cd?00:47
geniiBSG75: Perhaps take at look at alltray, it can minimize apps which normally won't on their own. It's in the repos00:47
BSG75or am I mistaken?00:47
webtoeAxioplase: bear in mind, the latest 2.22 of emacs is no longer really a text editor. Its a lisp virtual machien basically with a load of the internal functions ported over to elisp00:47
Axioplasewebtoe: xterm too takes a dozen or two seconds to launch...00:47
BSG75genii: I have installed :) .. that will be my next step .. thank you :)00:47
daedranickrud: is there a simplified mounting application in ubuntu? I'm dealing with ntfs00:47
AxioplaseI really think that it's because of X somehow...00:47
webtoeaxiosplase: hmm, possibly a hard drive issue then. check dmesg. If you're using an IDE hard drive check that it is running 133Mhz rather than 3300:48
elmerI changed a setting or something00:48
elmerI have no title bars00:48
jcornwallMcGod, find /media/cdrom | grep network-manager and dpkg -i it00:48
BSG75elmer: LOL00:48
webtoeAxioplase: if it is, its because of the hardware driver probably00:48
BSG75elmer: look into your Emerald theme manager00:49
webtoeaxiplase: are you starting emaccs as a gtk app or as a cli app?00:49
nickrudBSG75 no, you're right. I tracked down the home page, seems to be obsolete. Sorry http://minimizetotray.mozdev.org/installation.html00:49
georgeguitarhi, somebody who can help me with my usb flash memory?00:49
Ssam`what is that add/remove menu thingy called00:49
BSG75nickrud: hey don't be sorry .. you tried to help .. what more can I ask for :)00:49
Ssam`if u want to apt-get it?00:49
elmerBSG75, for the minimizing or title bars?00:49
samurailink3@Ssam you are thinking of synaptic00:49
BSG75title bars00:49
elmerI fixed00:49
BSG75you da man :)00:49
Ssam`i have synaptic00:49
=== kamus is now known as zettairedo
nickruddaedra no, but doubleclicking the device in the filemanager will mount it00:50
Ssam`i want my debian to look as much like ubuntu as possibel00:50
samurailink3@Ssam , or you could use 'sudo apt-get programname'00:50
Mifuynegeorgeguitar, usb flash memory or flash drive?00:50
webtoeaxioplase: you need to apply a fuzzy regex to my typing as i keep spelling your name wrong...00:50
elmerSo now all I need to do is figure out how to keep the windows open when I switch desktops00:50
wtfhi! im trying to install ubuntu.. but when i try to do partitionate the hd... it gaves me some error (its not especified...) then i try to do the partitioning using G part and i get the same error... can some1 tell me whats wrong? ask me and ill send you the images via imageshack url (or can i paste em in the channel?)00:50
Ssam`i cant even seem to log out as user :/00:50
nerdpartyOkay, just made myself admin, now what do I do to delete a user and their home directory again?00:50
samurailink3@Ssam`  - That is strange... any messages?00:50
geniiwtf: Better to just type in here exactly what it says in the error, vague or not00:51
Ssam`nope....u click quit it lists logout and shutdown and reboot are unclickable unless ur root00:51
Ssam`and debian people are ignoring this issue00:51
daedranickrud: it doesn't mount writeable00:51
wtfit makes the gpart to crash u.U00:51
max_webtoe : something tells me its a graphics thing... im using compiz00:52
BSG75genni: I read your message to wtf and thought you were mad :)00:52
wtfit says nothing but error00:52
wtfand it can't00:52
Ssam`one said its a security thing...but i am using Xfce and there isnt a graphical user management00:52
Chronixi need a bit of info00:52
Mifuynewtf, how many hdd are you partitioning? How many partitions are you creating at a time?00:52
wtfcan i paste here the url to the snaopshots?00:52
ChaosTheory^Does Downloader for X automatically integrate with Firefox?00:52
geniiwtf: Are you trying to make some partition with a filesystem like ntfs or xfs or similar?00:52
Starnestommywtf: yes00:52
samurailink3@Ssam` - Ah-hah! I see... Lemme find the name of the program, you should be able to apt-get that and take care of it.00:52
webtoemax_: maybe, what graphics card you using? and what ubunut?00:53
Chronixif i am a hardcore gamer and install ubuntu can i still play my games at full performance?00:53
wtf1 hd and 1 partition in the 1st half with 4 logic partitions00:53
hegemonok, I don't think my xorg is acutally reading from the xorg.conf file00:53
geniigah fredorik00:53
hegemonanyone know a workaround?00:53
Ssam`thanks man owe u one if u do that00:53
elmerChronix, some games will work in Cedega, but not all00:53
samurailink3SSam` - You should 'sudo apt-get install users-admin'00:53
elmerBSG75, any luck with the setting?00:54
nickruddaedra then you will need to set up /etc/fstab,  something like:   UUID=<see blkid for uuid of device> /media/<device> ntfs defaults,umask=007,gid=46 0 1  . device is the /dev/<device>00:54
Ssam`which is why i come here instead of debian usually....i still like ubuntu just waiting for the new release00:54
Mr_Bad_Newsdoes anyone really good with wireless problems00:54
nerdpartyWhat's the command to delete a user and their home directory? userdel ... something?00:54
Mr_Bad_Newsi updated to feisty and now my wireless doesnt work00:54
samurailink3SSam` - That will give you the gui, make sure to run this with sudo, hopefully after that, you can edit your permissions and get this straightened out.00:54
geniinerdparty:  sudo deluser --remove-home username00:54
Mifuynebut I guess I learned something today xD00:54
Ssam`there isnt a users-admin00:54
geZehi, when typing in the console some of my letters overlap each other. I already changing the font etc but it doesn't help. Any ideas?00:54
samurailink3Ssam` - Yea these people are usually very helpful. I've been on Ubuntu for a while, started out on suse... Oh.. umm... lemme check around real quick.00:55
Ssam`is there a ubuntu packages?00:55
geZe*tried changing00:55
webtoeMr_Bad_News: you are having problems with feisty wireless? what wireless card do you have?00:55
MifuynegeZe, I don't know if this is possible, but is overwrite on?00:55
Ssam`ill download it and install it manually00:55
Mr_Bad_Newsintel centrino web_knows00:55
samurailink3Ssam` - Yea, that's a good idea00:55
Mr_Bad_Newsit was working fine until i upgraded00:55
webtoehmmm, you're the second person who has called me web_knows...00:55
geZeit also doesn't happen with all letters, only long ones00:55
max_webtoe - well , im using ubuntu 7.10 and 8.04 on a Geforce 6800, but it also happened on my laptop which is a ATI Radeon, and had mem leaks with that using desktop effects under XGL.   remember its only the xorg process that is mem leaked00:56
Ssam`yea.....ubuntu people are pretty helpfull and tolerent if u go on other channels for help and ur a newbie theyll just say RTFM even though u have Read the friendly manual00:56
Mr_Bad_Newstypo sorry00:56
Chronixwill ubuntu affect me playing counter-strike:source?00:56
MifuyneO.o it sounds like it's limiting how much you can type per line...00:56
FarkieDepends how you run it Chronix00:56
geZemh, no, fore example if i type two m, it is already overlapping00:56
nerdpartyMuahahaha! I am now admin and the only user!00:56
webtoeMr_Bad_News: do you know the exact chip? It should be reported by sudo lspci -vv00:56
geZelooks like an m with an n in the middle00:56
samurailink3Ssam` - Yea, I've seen that and it kinda angers me. There are people that want to learn, not just get everything on a plate and served to them. The people who know should help out. Everyone has problems at one point or another, even guru's. That is the mentality open source was build on.00:57
elmerIs there a way I can make Compiz NOT minimize all windows when I switch desktops?00:57
McGodi hate wpa00:57

Mifuynewhat's your keyboard layout set to?00:57
geniiChronix: If you are a hardcore Windows gamer I'd suggest just keeping it around and dual boot. Many games don't work that great under wine or cedega.00:57
wtfanybody looked at my screenies? something wrong?00:57
webtoemax_: its difficult to say still. Drivers are implemented as modudels for X so they'll show up under its memory footprint. It could be any number of X problems00:57
Ssam`lol everyone starts somewhere00:57
geZeGeneric 105-key (Intl) PC, german layout00:58

bastid_raZorSsam`; an easy way to search to see if a package exists is either in synaptic or on the website :: http://packages.ubuntu.com/00:59
FarkieIsn't it "sudo xmodmap /usr/share/xmodmap/xmodmap.uk" to change keyboard layout?00:59
SunRayCafeMr_Bad_News, ah! thanks much!!00:59
elmerBSG75, actually when I alt+ctrl left or right it just switches to the same desktop with now windows00:59

I'm using GL Desktop, does anyone have any idea what might be causing it?01:04
webtoeaxioplase: its just that a couple of people have misspelled my name in the same way. I think pidgin or something is auto correcting my name...01:04

richardbinvij :  What media player are you using?01:12
cbrrDraggin: ok thanks i'm searching 4 solution in google anyway01:12
webtoeDraggin: you need to look in dmesg for somethign relating to sda01:12
nerdpartyIt says there's no manual entry when I try "man unrar"01:12
binvijvlc media player01:12
georgeguitarMifuyne, humm at the beginning I just followed this tutorial: http://www.nabble.com/3-Mobile-USB-modem-td16208164.html01:12
Dragginwebtoe - okay... About that - what exactly does 'sda' mean?  I see my hard drives are also detected as sda and not the (apparently) standard hda01:13
richardbinvij : Try opening it in Totem Player.    There should be a option to view the Video's properties.  Try looking in there.01:13
georgeguitarMifuyne, the section that says: OK - PRETTY MUCH DISREGARD MOST01:13
bastid_raZornerdparty; did you install unrar or just look at it from synaptic .. try sudo apt-get install unrar01:13
Mifuynegeorgeguitar, I found it01:13
webtoeDraggin: yeah don't worry. The kernel decided to call IDE drives hd something01:13
nemikhi. does anyone else's laptop with gutsy get an "inu" message when resuming that freezes the laptop?01:13
goldbondi am trying to compile sqlite and i am getting this error: http://dpaste.com/43845/01:13
JoelitoDoes anyone know a good tool to create crosswords?01:14
goldbond i missing some build packages or something?01:14
webtoeDraggin: and devices that are vaguely like SCSI devices sd somthing01:14
Dragginwebtoe, ah, okay, so its because I have SATA drives then I guess?01:14
ScuniziDraggin, sda is drive #1, sdb is drive 2, sdc is drive 3.. sda1 is first partition, sda2 is partition 2 etc.01:14
Mifuynegeorgeguitar, have you tried restarting the X Server? Try to disconnect the usb modem first01:14
webtoeDraggin: because of the way usb flash disks were developed, they are classed under the SCSI naming scheme01:14
binvijwhen i double click on mp4 it opens up in totem. in the properties section the audio area is greyed out01:14
geniiDraggin: sdX devices used to be for SCSI device names. Ubuntu has shifted from hdX to sdX perhaps 2 releases ago now01:14
ticki dont believe it is01:14
Dragginwebtoe, thanks, let me have a look if I can make sense of dmesg again...01:14
binvijam i missing a codec.. .everything else plays fine01:14
tickthe output  didnt list it01:15
webtoeDraggin: as I think someone suggested try dmesg | grep sd01:15
Scunizibinvij, try it with gxine.. solved some of my issues.. or vlc..01:15
richardbinvij : Did you install the Ubuntu Restricted Package?01:15
Mifuynegeorgeguitar, try sudo insmod usb_storage01:15
webtoethat should cull the crap you get when you type dmesg01:15
Dragginwebtoe - thanks, I'll try that01:15
georgeguitarMifuyne, ok, I'll do it, just wait me, because I'm using the usb modem to be connected to Internet01:15
ticknot by name anyway01:15
Mifuynebut try the usb_storage one first01:15
max_webtoe: know of any way on getting details of my running modules?   at the least just a list of the running ones?01:15
binvijyes i did install ubuntu restricted packages .. and the other media formats are working fine01:16
Mifuynealthough you should be doing this after you plugged your flash drive01:16

Mifuynepiqoni, can't you just uninstall OSS?01:19
Cle0i want a command to know my LAN ip and my internet ip01:20
Mifuynepiqoni, why not use Alsa?01:20
Dr_willisI think thers a ubuntu skype wiki page.01:20
Chris|that might help Dr_willis01:20
ubotuTo install Skype on Ubuntu, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Skype - To record on Skype, check: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SkypeRecordingHowto01:20
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about ip - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi01:20
piqoni <Mifuyne>  because my headphones do not work with alsa01:20
bastid_raZornerdparty; in that terminal try man unrar ... that is going to give you a list of syntax's for you to use with the unrar command in a terminal01:20
jpw27_Every time I turn my computer on, it goes into low graphics mode and I have to reinstall my nVidia drivers every time.  any way out?01:20

Cle0i want a command to know my LAN ip and my internet ip01:20
richardbinvij : haha01:21
piqoni <Mifuyne> by the way, even with oss they dont work, I mean they DO WORK, but with low volume, and the speakers of laptop dont mute when I plug the headphonse01:21
bastid_raZornerdparty; since it is installed if you are in the GUI and double click .rar file it will automatically use unrar.01:21
webtoetick: sorry, that was my fault. Was following several conversations. What are you trying to do then? Connect via bluetooth?01:21
piqoni <Mifuyne> for this, ubuntu is horrible01:21
MifuyneAre these headphones connected via USB?01:21
Dr_willisCle0,  'ifconfig' for the local ip#01:21
richardbinvij : you could try playing it in different players.   Did you try Mplayer?01:21
Cle0i know this01:21
tickno just usb cable01:21
piqoni <Mifuyne>  no (please right my name so I can see the highlight01:21
bastid_raZornerdparty; do you have any .rar files to test CLI or the GUI methods?01:21
tickjust dont know that much about it01:22
binvijrichard: in order to check the settings i inserted a dvd and it played with sound ..01:22
webtoetick: and what phone? sorry, just to warn you, its nearly 1:30am here and so I need to bugger off soon.01:22
ticksamsung a70701:22
Mifuynepiqoni, when you said Skype doesn't work, you mean there's no sound?01:22
nerdpartybastid_raZor: The GUI method is working, I don't understand the CLI one though.01:22
binvijrichard: this video is downloaded from google in mp4 format01:22
webtoetick: it depends on the phone. My nokia e65 doesn't show up using the usb cable but on bluetooth its fin01:23
richardbinvij : Google Video?01:23
piqoni <Mifuyne>  it opens and When I log in it closes, I mean this is a common problem for those that installed OSS01:23

piqoni Mifuyne, do you know anything about OpenSUSE, regarding the sound problems, maybe if I install that OS, Ill by fine??????01:26
Dr_willisrectec794613,  you may have some other deeper problem. I would check out the 'dmesg' command output.  as you plug in the device.01:26

piqoni Mifuyne, ok01:26
pharohhey how can one see what version of linux one has?like whether its x86_64 or just x86?01:26
Dr_williszero88,  if he messed with the fstab - then he can try to mount them manually. that would be the next thing i would suttest rectec794613  tries. Manual Mounting.01:26
Mifuynepiqoni,  if there are articles and posts saying that it should fix the problem, it wouldn't hurt to try, right? :)01:26

che_rectec794613: then what ? edit-fix broken packages ?02:09
Mifuynegeorgeguitar, try sudo modprobe usb_storage again, but right after, type "dmesg | tail -n 20"02:09

geniiCrackGuy: Only the alternate cd can be used as an offline repository, not the regular livecd.02:13
rectec794613I mean :(02:13
geniiCrackGuy: edit the sources.list with: gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list02:14
ricanelitedo i need to have xserver-xgl installed?02:14
Christophe_somebody can help me02:14
BarryToemanbrainiac8008: did you try reseating the ram?  Also put in an ubuntu install disc and try the memtest option to test for bad ram.02:14
CrackGuygenii, oh, i think i have the live cd. i downloaded it ubuntu image online and burnt it, is that livecd?02:14
Christophe_i have just one or two questions ?02:15
geniiCrackGuy: If it boots to a graphical desktop, that is the regular livecd, yes.02:15
AngryBaconChristophe_, don,t ask to ask02:15
che_rectec794613: yeah but i'm confusing.02:15
BarryToemanChristophe_: that was one...you have one left.02:15

derspanksteranyone using FreeNas as a file server with Ubuntu?02:17
Christophe_im on powerpc and i want to know if a linux application can be installed on any architecture or not : for example in fedora02:17
brainiac8008barrytoeman, me neither. idk but that must be my problem.  do you know how i can change it? the article says make menuconfig but it doesnt work02:17
Mifuyneokay, georgeguitar, I actually got that from this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=5219702:17
Mifuynegeorgeguitar, the last post suggest you search up linux-image-* and reinstall it02:17
Gilou!tab | brainiac800802:17
ubotubrainiac8008: You can use <tab> for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.02:17
ropoyhow to upgrade when it says "could not download release notes"02:17

georgeguitarat the end02:18
pleasedontspammemy computer has an old nvidea tnt2 video card, why can' i set the resolution higher than 800x600? i have the legasy driver installed, and before i did it would go larger than that02:18
Mifuynegeorgeguitar,  O.o weird...02:18
AngryBaconChristophe_, usually, but you may need to compile yourself02:18
StarnestommyChristophe_: most binaries compiled on one architecture won't work on another02:18
Mifuynewell, like I said, try to reinstall linux-image and you'll probably have to restart02:18
georgeguitarMifuyne, may be is because I've created a rule in /etc/udev/rules.d02:18
Christophe_is it hard to copile or its just take the package and make "yum" ... ?02:18
Mifuynebleh, I probably should've read that page more thoroughly02:19
BarryToemanbrainiac8008: i'm not sure.  sorry about that.02:19
Mifuynegeorgeguitar, if you did, remove it02:19
StarnestommyChristophe_: the package manager should automatically get the rioght binaries for your architecture02:19
brainiac8008BarryToeman: k. thanks anyway02:19
AngryBaconChristophe_, this isn,t fedora support02:19
Mifuynegeorgeguitar, I'd be surprised if that doesn't fix it02:19
phs5555i have found drivers for a touch screen for mandrake or redhat would they work for ubuantu?02:19
Enulanyone know a good distribution for a linux newb other then ubuntu?02:20
georgeguitarMifuyne, ok, I'll do it, just wait me, I'll remove it and restart all over again02:20
BarryToemanbrainiac8008: at least try some other ram or a memtest if you have any before messing around with the kernel.02:20
Mifuynealrighty, I'll be here02:20
AngryBaconphs5555, get the redhat one and use alien to make it a .deb02:20
Christophe_yes but if a aplication is not on the package manager ... how to know if the application will work ?02:20
BoohbahChristophe_: and why don't you get a distribution that has ppc packages?02:20
brainiac8008BarryToeman: okay.  can i do a memtest via the terminal02:20

jribropoy: what are you upgrading to?02:22
geniiCrackGuy: If you have another ubuntu box and some removable thing like usb stick, you can d/l only any install files by mounting the media somewhere like /mnt/tmp. Then: echo 'dir::cache::archives "/mnt/tmp"' | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/apt.conf          then issue: sudo apt-get install --download-only samba                   then sudo rm /etc/apt/apt.conf  , unmount the media, put it in machine without internet and copy the files to02:22

linuxmongerarvind_khadri: My best time was 11 minutes to restore from a backup image and I thought that was way to long. I get the question on time variation though - maybe a different configuration of the drives or a different vendor of CDs, it does make a difference. I had an old HP cdwriter - 8x I think - it would work fine being secondary to a Western Digital drive, but wouldn't write if it was secondary to a Maxtor. Weird.02:57

htmljunkie so get this everyone , I was on the linuxchix server just to see what it was all about, I say a few jokes and they tell me to get off their server. PLEASE go to that server irc.linuxchix.org and flood #linuxchix and protest this sexist abuse of power. Thank you, all people who go are free to do, this is not being forced upon anyone . They wouldn't answer any of my questions about linux either03:16

ubotuhtmljunkie: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, #ubuntu+1 supports the development version of Ubuntu and #ubuntu-offtopic is for random chatter. Welcome!03:16
soulreaperi tryed putting it in a diff port and same thing happends03:16
hikejinxsouldreaper, have you installed mp3 support? Tried opening a player and paying them?03:17
arvind_khadrikravlin, hey tat wasnt for u sorry :)03:17

arvind_khadriurthmover, hi03:17
soulreaperthats what im haveing troubles with i cant see the mp3 files03:17
soulreaperso i cant get the updates and whats nots03:17
IdleOnehtmljunkie: if you ever read the ubuntu c.o.c. you would know that doing what you ask is against the c.o.c. wich any good ubuntu user would have read and signed03:17
Creationisthmm... maybe htmljunkie should just grow up, get some sun, and read a book?03:18

arvind_khadrisoulreaper, you mean nautilus its file manager  for Gnome03:18
soulreaperits a sansa m35003:18
jribropoy: it's very easy to be precise with errors, you just copy them in full and paste them on the pastebin.  Paraphrasing what happens just creates confusion.  I have to go now, but here is what you can try: 1)  Consider whether you have a strange internet setup that prevents update-manager from fetching meta-release and address this.  2) Try to fetch meta-relaes from03:18
jribhttp://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release yourself and save it as /var/lib/update-manager/meta-release03:18

owen1bazhang: what's nfs?03:29
Scuniziarvind_khadri, it there.. and yes you can upgrade to it.. :)03:29

Buhmanatori have a cryptic error message from konqueror. my problem is that konqeror refuses to browse the file system. It wont open ANYTHING. no folders, pages, nothing. here is the error message it gives me when I type "/" into the location bar:03:31
Buhmanator"this appears to be a configuration error.  you have associated Konqueror with inode/directory, but it cannot handle this file type"03:31
BuhmanatorNow, last time I checked, the WHOLE point of konqueror was to browse the file system.  How can it not support "inode/directory"?03:31
BuhmanatorMajor problem, when I go to the said dialog in the emedding tab of  the file associations tab of the configure-konqueror dialog,03:31
FloodBot1Buhmanator: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.03:31
arvind_khadriScunizi, its better not to suggest it,as sometimes it may do a serious damage to hardware03:31
hikejinxsoulreaper: we need to change to the directory for SANSA 35003:31
Buhmanatorwhen I click on the "add" button on the services preference order subsection to add " Icon View (konq_iconview)" to the top of the list, there are no items in the list to add!03:31

bazhangkravlin: not sure what that means; what video card and what cd (32 bit or 64 bit)03:49
StroganoffToadinator whats ur problem?03:49
mophead_Pelo: your serial number theory makes sense03:49
StroganoffToadinator yes go to the mailing list03:49
dtsshivamib: it starts gnome then screen goes black (presumably crashes) and it returns to the login screen03:49
kravlinbazhang: it's not the 64bit cd.03:49
Pelomophead_, ah03:49
StroganoffToadinator send an example03:49
Scunizilewench, I have the same issue.. not sure what causes it but it doesn't seem to effect anything.03:49
shivamibcan you ctrl+alt+f1?03:50
Toadinatorok... one second03:50
bazhangkravlin: you need no further assistance then?03:50
kravlinbazhang: video card is a 128mb 6600 Geforce.03:50
shivamibusually this is a video card thing03:50
kravlinbazhang: not unless it hangs up again.03:50
mophead_Thanks for the help!03:50
hikejinxokay soulreaper, I haven't heard back from you. I need to head out. In this thread is a solution. It's roughly thesame as one that worked for me and another model sansa. Try to finish or get someone else here to help. Good luck.03:51
Scunizikravlin, that's a pretty solid card.. have you checked xorg.conf under driver to see if it says nvidia?03:51
harriseldonlewench: try using the run dialog to create your own test of notify_send. You can use notify_send "Test Title" "Test Text"03:51
kravlinscunizi: it's not a video card issue.03:51
lewenchScunizi, yeah I know, just that pop up error is annoying. Was thinking about trying Kopete if its compatible gnome. Just don't know how good it is.03:51
harriseldonlewench: if that does not work, it may be path related.03:51
FliesLikeABrickif I told gnome to rotate my display under System->Preferences->Screen Resolution, what file is that option saved in?  I changed it, nothing shows up right, and I need to manually revert the change03:51
bazhangkravlin: almost all of those errors are either with the motherboard or the 64bit cd; you say it is not the 64bit cd so not sure what else to recommend at this point--you may file a bug at launchpad if you feel it is warranted03:51
yahya_yeah I have a problem03:52
kravlinbazhang: probably the motherboard then. the guy i got this cd from says it's not 64 bit.03:52
hikejinxYou basically need to make a file in the mp3 players root foler named is_a_player or something, add some info to the file.03:52
Scunizi  harriseldon how do you get to the run dialogue.?03:52
soulreaperi reported back to you03:52
soulreaperbut you no answer03:52
harriseldonScunizi: I use Alt-F203:53
bazhangkravlin: the guy? might want to download the 32bit and see if that is the case and if you run into the same errors--I would trust ubuntuforums over the guy03:53
yahya_after I installed the ubuntu.. I downloaded the adobe nonfree plugin but it didn't work .. Then I installed it manually and now when any flash site launched the browser quits03:53

CreationistScunizi: It lets you create a customized Windows install disc without all the crap you don't need/want.03:58
ScuniziCreationist, do you do that from the original install cd?03:59
CreationistScunizi: I created it specifically for gaming so it doesn't have all that extra crap (services, drivers, etc) that MIcrosoft puts on every machine.  It's much faster this way.03:59
CreationistScunizi: Yes.  Look into a program call nLite.03:59

brunoshadow Everything well, I give good idea to use one, if can, help me!05:05
harriseldonelmer: if the printer is a windows share, use Windows printer via Samba. If it is network attached like jetdirect, use ipp05:06

astro76!iptables | pythondasnake05:07
ubotupythondasnake: Ubuntu, like any other linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'iptables' command (see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo), or GUI applications such as Firestarter (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE).05:07
dmsupermanLike, why does it return hd1,5, when the ubuntu partition with grub on it is the second partition on hd105:08
pythondasnakeubotu understand but I have my reasons for using it strictly as a firewall.. I will look at your link thanks05:08

dmsupermanShadow420: So if find /boot/grub/stage1 returns hd1,5, then i run root (hd1,5) and setup (hd0), why does it say partition not found when selecting the partition from grub at bootup?05:09
elmerit acts like it is going to print, and then it doesn't05:10
Shadow420dmsuperman hmm maybe you can make a grub boot cd05:10
elmerthat is it starts up like normal, but doesn't pull in any paper05:10
dmsupermanShadow420: Grub is installed05:10
brunofitoria where do you live?05:10
elmerit is an HP deskjet 374005:10
fitoriaNicaragua and you?05:10

Shadow420dmsuperman thats weird are you in the Live CD05:10
dmsupermanShadow420: The only problem is the partitions it setup for menu.lst don't point to the correct partitions05:10

brunofitoria Yes to understand, that you are even parents?05:12
dmsupermanShadow420: Then I reboot, grub loads, and it says invalid partition for selecting the partitions05:13
ircit said i need to run it as root or some thing05:13
fitoriabruno: ??????05:13
harriseldonelmer: are you sure the connection parameters are correct? you can try selecting "Show printers shared by other systems" under Server Settings in the printer configuration dialog. Then add the printer again. This time, the system will search for listening printers.05:13
Shadow420dmsuperman are you going to install grub to the mbr?05:13
bruno fitoria Yes to understand, that you are even parents?05:13
dmsupermanShadow420: I just installed ubuntu less than an hour ago, i haven't even been able to boot into it05:13

omar_ Guys, some of the python based applications don't work with me, maybe because I tried to install the latest alpha version of python. can anyone help?05:14
elmerharriseldon, I'll try that05:14
Starnestommyirc: put 'sudo' before the command that you're trying to run05:14
irci need to know the whole command05:14
ircthats the thing05:14
ircit says i need to run it as root05:14
brunofitoria:  /?????05:14
Starnestommyirc: which command are you trying?05:14
dmsupermanirc: "sudo COMMAND"05:14
brunofitoria: Ask me ..!!!05:14
fitoriabruno:  I dont understand your question can you re write it??05:15
Shadow420dmsuperman ok then re-install ubuntu then after when you get the installing the bootloader click on advance the set the install to (hd0)05:15
Agent_bobirc it helps if you tell what you are trying to install, and where you got it.05:15
elmerharriseldon, I just submitted a test page05:15
harriseldonelmer: any change in printer status?05:15
elmerharriseldon, no05:16
dmsupermanShadow420: I don't want to install to hd0. hd1 is my primary hard drive. Bios boots to hd1. I installed grub to hd1. Ubuntu is installed at hd1,5. My menu.lst points to hd1,5, but complains that it's invalid05:16
brunofitoria: How many years you have?05:16
fitoria19 and you?05:16
Shadow420dmsuperman I don't see how hd1 is primary when on my setup my primary is hd005:17
dmsupermanthat's your setup05:17
dmsupermani have 2 hard drives05:17
dmsuperman1 for storage05:17
Shadow420dmsuperman so do I05:17
Agent_bobso anyone good with sane/devices ?05:17
dmsuperman1 for system05:18

omar_ Guys, some of the python based applications don't work with me, maybe because I tried to install the latest alpha version of python. can anyone help?05:18
dmsupermani put it in SATA 1 thinking it was the first slot05:18
harriseldonelmer: you are sure the connection parameters are correct? That is the olny issue I can think of.05:18
dmsupermanhowever, on my board it starts at SATA 005:18
dmsupermanso my storage is at SATA 005:18
fitoriabruno: come to #ubuntu-ni05:18
dmsupermanhowever, bios boots to SATA 105:18
harriseldonirc: did you follow the directions at the yami pod site http://www.yamipod.com/main/modules/docs/help/install_linux.php05:18
elmerharriseldon, state changed to processing05:18
dmsupermanso, hd0 = storage, hd1 = system05:18
harriseldonelmer: good sign!05:19
elmerharriseldon, I agree!05:19
Shadow420dmsuperman then u need to set bios to boot sata 0 also move your storage drive as a slave05:19
elmerharriseldon, the state went to held05:19
dmsupermanSATA doesn't have slaves or masters05:20
dsl546is ubotu still here?05:20
elmerharriseldon, and when I tried to release it it went processing then held again05:20
Starnestommydsl546: yes05:20
brunofitoria: Not enter, I do not know mecher very well that, you do not use msn?05:20
dmsupermanand why would i want bios to boot from my storage hard drive?05:20
ubotuInformation about using and setting your computer's clock on Ubuntu can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuTime - See https://help.ubuntu.com/7.10/server/C/NTP.html for information on usage of the Network Time Protocol (NTP)05:20

MrSoReadyafter checking my computer has a GeForce 7000 M05:22
MrSoReadywhat is NVdriver load bookmark? are you asking me if I installed something?05:22
dmsupermanall i want to know is05:22
elmerkindofabuzz, yes. I know that for a fact, because I can print to it in XP05:22
dmsupermanhow can i determine which parition hd1,5 points to, vs hd1,1 and so on05:22
kindofabuzzthat don't mean it's shared05:23
elmerkindofabuzz, you sure?05:23
kindofabuzzelmer, that don't mean it's shared, is the printer connected to the XP box?05:23
elmerkindofabuzz, yes05:23
elmernot mine05:23
eeyore0022dmsuperman: I think you can see that in /etc/fstab05:23
elmerbut a seperate one05:23
Shadow420dmsuperman well I can't relly tell you except for look around in forums05:23
kindofabuzzgo to you printers in XP and right click it and choose sharing05:23

elmerkindofabuzz, wait... it is connected to a Vista box. Sorry. >.<05:24
Shadow420bookmark what are you doing?05:24
elmerkindofabuzz, do the same thing anyway?05:24
bookmarki was wondering if i can put linux all on one partition05:24
kindofabuzzyeah make sure it's networked shared05:24
bookmarkbut it requires at least two doesn't it?05:24
Agent_bobdmsuperman the partition numbering is 0+   i.e.  0 is first 1 is second 2 is third...   the device.map file in /boot/grub/  determines which drive hd0 is.05:24
Shadow420book yeah05:25
kindofabuzzwell if your xp box can print to it and it's connectd to your vista box then yeah it's hshared already05:25
Shadow420bookman yeah05:25

kindofabuzzelmer i meant05:26
bookmarkyeah, yikes05:26
dmsupermanlogical partitions start at hd?,5 right?05:26
Agent_bobdmsuperman the (hd?) listings in menu.lst are only referances to the mapping in the map file.05:26
bookmarkso many partitions my head is swimming05:26
bookmarki should have put vista programs with vista sys05:27
kindofabuzzyou should have not put vista at all =)05:27
bookmarki didn't know that ntfs doesn't really require defragging when i decided to partition so much05:27
Agent_bobdmsuperman ummm  no.   logical partitions can start anywhere from 2 up05:27
bookmarkhehe i have two vista installations incase one fails05:27
luis__hi guys05:27
kindofabuzzand they will05:27
dmsupermanthen is there any reason that find /boot/grub/stage1 returns hd1,5?05:27

kindofabuzzandrew__, install gutsy =)05:30
andrew__i did05:31
andrew__n ew is better05:31
Agent_bobdmsuperman yes but what i'm saying about partition numbering is that there is no "chisseled in stone" law as to what "number" the first logical will be.   most common setup is for the first extended partition to be numbered as hd?4  "grub (hd#,3)"  and the first logical partition to be +1 that.05:31
Shadow420andrew__ I don;t know hard but stick with gutsy for now05:31
=== roaksoax_ is now known as RoAkSoAx
Flannelluis__: What's the problem?  You can't find them in the menus or what?  What did you install?05:31
sutabiAnytone here knoiw how to do cate5 crossover to share internet connection? I have windows xp and Ubuntu, but my windows has wireless and ubuntu has a crossover connectted to my xp box with the wireless.05:31
kindofabuzznew is not always better05:31
Flannelandrew__: Newer is not always better.  Suggested that you install a stable version instead of a buggy one.05:31
dsl546new is better if it's really new05:31
kindofabuzznew just means more bugs05:32
dmsupermanAgent_bob: Then do you see any reason why when i run root (hd1,5) setup (hd1) and boot into grub it says cannot find partition when selecting one of the partitions?05:32
Shadow420sutabi ubuntu can be set to use the wireless conncetion05:32
dmsupermanAgent_bob: menu.lst points to hd1,5 for the partitions in the list05:32
dsl546no, new means cash05:32
sutabiShadow420: From my Windows XP that has the wireless?05:33
sethrdI don't much care for all the apps that ubuntu desktop installs. Anyway to cut it down during installation, or possible do a server install, and install JUST Xorg and whatever apps I want, instead of a full blown GNOME desktop? gnome-light from Gentoo comes to mind05:33
luis__i went to konsole and typed sudo aptitude to fiiiiind uninstall programs then i found games uninstall and i did install them it took like two days, now it just finish but there are bi games on the menu is there any simple way and not that long to get just simple card games thta you can help me please flannel?05:33
Agent_bobdmsuperman i don't even use a partition.  there are a thousand ways to setup an hdd.    dmsuperman and to answer "do i see a reason" not really, but; one thing to check is if bios is changing the order of the disks.  you may have to adjust the hd# accordingly.05:33
Shadow420sutabi are u dual-booting XP/Ubuntu?05:34
Flannelsethrd: Grab the alternate CD and you can install a text-only system (or the server CD, but you'll want the generic kernel)05:34
dmsupermanAgent_bob: Alright, thanks :D05:34
sethrddmsuperman: Also, if your drive is SATA, it will show as sda, not hda05:34
sutabiShadow420: no these are 2 complete differ computers05:34
Flannelluis__: Which games did you install? do you remember?   You should ask about the games in #kubuntu, I'm unfamiliar with KDE games.05:35
dmsupermansethrd: It is SATA, but find /boot/grub/stage1 returnd h1,505:35
Shadow420sutabi ok where is ubuntu installed on a laptop or dektop05:35
dmsupermansethrd: Should I replace that with sd1,5 ?05:35
akatsukiHI, I just install ubuntu on my laptop. but i always use my external monitor to work on my laptop... i use VGA for that... and im not able to send the image using ubuntu.. anyone know how to fix this?05:35
Agent_bobdmsuperman what i'm saying there is that, bios may call one disk hd0 and as soon as the linux kernel loads the drives may swap. as far as the   0x80 0x81  bios calls are concerned.05:35
luis__it says only games uninstall05:35
sutabiShadow420: desktop05:35
luis__so i just choose to inistall but nothing appears on the menu05:35
|Slurpee|i finally got vista to shrink my drive properly.  now I have a 25 gig vista, 20 gig free, 10 gig free, and 7 gig free allocations setup on 1 drive.  i am trying to setup ubuntu on my 20 gig free space.  how can i setup the partition in ubuntu?  I am having trouble with manual05:35
luis__and i just want to install some card games thats it but i just cant05:36
sethrdFlannel: So, I could install via the via CD, then just do apt-get gnome, and have a bare minimum GNOME desktop, or will it still grab all the crap that comes with the ubuntu-desktop package?05:36
Flannelluis__: Like I said, I'm sure there's some Kubuntu games like the ones you're looking for, but I don't know them.  You should ask in #kubuntu05:36
sethrd*via the alt CD05:36
Agent_bobdmsuperman it's always worth a shot to reverse the hd# in menu.lst and see what happens.05:36
dmsupermanAgent_bob: trying that now :D05:36
Shadow420sutabi ok ubuntu should be able to access the ethernet card regardless even on the live cd05:36
luis__ok and how do i get there sorry but i am new on kubuntu and im learning05:36
elmerkindofabuzz, I have no clue what the machine's IP is, but I do know that it shows up when I click browse to find the printer05:37
sethrddmsuperman: I know what I did my last (gentoo) linux install, installer saw my drive as hd1,0 because I was using an external USB cd-rom to install.05:37
sethrddmsuperman: When I booted, I had to edit the drub line to be hd0,005:37
kindofabuzzelmer, ok, is the printer on?05:37
sutabiShadow420: it can access eth0 fine..... but from my other desktop with the internet connection thats it connects to it doesn't do anything05:37
Flannelsethrd: the gnome package in universe grabs stock gnome (which includes the gnome apps, like epiphany, etc).  There are other packages for a bare gnome install, yes.  I don't believe there's a pre-fab metapackage, but yes, you can build your own lightweight one.05:37
Agent_bobnow can anyone offer any advanced help on a scanner setup ?05:37
dmsupermansethrd: Thanks for the tip, gonna try hd0,5 now05:37
elmerkindofabuzz, yes it is05:37
kindofabuzzelmer, did you go to admin  > printers and go through that?05:37
dmsupermansethrd: Since my primary drive is actually the second SATA drive in the list for bios05:37
elmerkindofabuzz, yes05:37
Agent_bobFlannel maybe ?  when your not busy ?05:37
kindofabuzzhmm dunno, man out of ideas sorry05:38
sethrddmsuperman: If it is your second drive onthe ribbon, odds are it would be hd1,505:38
Shadow420sutabi ok so it's your xp install not accessing the internet?05:38
Chronixhello i need help05:38
sethrddmsuperman: But you are more then welcome to try. Won't hurt anything05:38
Chronixcan anyone pllz help?05:38
sutabiShadow420: no winows has the internety05:38
sethrdFlannel: How would you go about building a stripped down version of GNOME without pulling everything from universe?05:38
sutabiShadow420: ubuntu doesn't05:39
Flannelsethrd: what?  You mean without installing the "gnome" package?05:39
Agent_bobChronix the rest room is down the hall on the left.       help with what ?05:39
sethrdFlannel: Yes, I apologize. How would I go about installing a bare minimum GNOME install?05:39
akatsukihas anyone try before e17 on ubuntu? how does it works? it is slow?05:40

houbuntuhey guys, does anyone know how to setup apache2 where you can store your shared files i a specific folder?05:42
Flannelsethrd: http://packages.ubuntu.com/gutsy/gnome is that package, which depends on http://packages.ubuntu.com/gutsy/gnome-desktop-environment, which looks to be a standard gnome desktop without too many other things.  Epiphany, Ekiga, evolution, and that looks like that's it when it comes to extras.05:42

Shadow420Chronix it's possible that the cd got screwed up05:42
tonyyarussohoubuntu: like ~/public_html?05:42
Randocalif i'm buying a new video card, who do I wanna go with. Is ATI/AMD's driver support better or worse than Nvidia?05:42

shivamiboh, the love05:44
RandocalI'm running into a bug with my current nvidia card and compiz. Apparently it's still present in Hardy from the bit of reading i've done. Is the ATI/AMD driver support actually bad? or just not quite as good as Nvidia ?05:44
tonyyarussohoubuntu: Sounds like a job for NFS or Samba rather than Apache.05:44
houbuntucool, i will check it out, thx05:44
dmsupermannow, i've got a 7900gsko, anyone have any recommendations for a driver for dual monitor?05:44
Flannelsethrd: gnome will include some extras, gnome-desktop-environment includes fewer.  gnome includes synaptic, rhythmbox, etc.  Take a look05:44
Agent_bobsethrd do the server install and then install x-window-system-core and the gnome base package  not "gnome"  it's a meta package that will bloat your system.05:44
dmsupermanis the propietary one the best choice still, or are hte open ones working good for dual monitor now?05:45
Nasramy question went by unnoticeable....how do I update to new version of Ubuntu coming at the end of April I beleave is Ubuntu 8.04, correct?05:45
tonyyarussoRandocal: depends on the card.  My (ATI) card is downright awful, but newer stuff is a bit better.05:45

Randocalso i'm thinking to move to an ATI x1300 I can get off a buddy05:47
Shadow420Randocal well I never used it because I have an older Nvidia Card05:47
Flannelsethrd: Not necessarily.  Just because you've got those apps doesn't mean your Xserver is on this machine05:48
Agent_bobsethrd x-window-system-core05:48
RandocalI think I might try out the X1300, i think it's new enough that's ATI's restricted driver will work for it. What do I need to do in order to change video cards without hosing my system?05:48
Agent_bobsethrd that's the meta package you want ^05:48
RandocalDo i just change to a generic driver, then power down, put in the new card, power back up and then install ATI's?05:49
akatsukihello i want to work with my monitor from my laptop using VGA, but ubuntu does not recognize my monitor,, why is this?05:49

xx0xxunop__ can you test this domain for me? www.hotircchat.com08:01

prodigelHi. I'm using ubuntu 7.10 with gnome. Is it possible to create a 'shortcut' on desktop similiar to thoose on windows that points to a samba share and can be browsable when trying to attach a file to mail from that location08:22
dmsupermanicesword: isn't that for partitions?08:22
unop__dmsuperman, see the --bind option to mount08:22
Daisuke_Idoi would just symlink it08:22
dmsupermanicesword: I want to mount just a folder08:22
dmsupermanso i've rebooted08:22
dmsupermanwe mounted that folder for firefox08:22
dmsupermani want to do that automatically on boot08:22
dmsupermanDaisuke_ldo: what's that/08:23
unop__prodigel, sure, just use nautilus to mount the samba share on the desktop08:23
prodigelunop__: how do I do that?08:23
unop__dmsuperman, if you want mounts to be permanent across reboots, you need to add entries into the /etc/fstab file08:24
unop__prodigel, alt+f2 .. type in 'nautilus-connect-server' .. and it should all become clear then08:24
dmsupermanunop__: do i just put the folder where it says file system?08:24
dmsupermanfor example, this line:08:25
dmsupermanUUID=F11EA6452986E83B /media/sdb2     ntfs    defaults,umask=007,gid=46 0       108:25
Daisuke_Idodmsuperman, is the directory you want to mount called "www"?08:25
dmsupermanwould i just do /media/sdb2/whwatever/blah /var/www ntfs defaults,umask=007,gid=46 0 1?08:25
dmsupermanno, it's DocRoot08:25
dmsupermanbut i could make it www08:26
Daisuke_Idoyou could do sudo ln -s /media/whatever/www /var08:26
unop__dmsuperman, /media/sdb2/whwatever/blah /var/www  none  bind 0 008:26
Daisuke_Idolooks like unop__'s suggestion is probably better though08:27
