xlriutHello, when I type xbacklight -inc 10%, it sometimes decreases 10% instead. What might be the problem? Thanks.00:02
hischildcharles|64, amarok doesn't see global shortcuts. use windows z till b for it instead.00:02
Adpadcharles|64: go to system -> pref -> keyboard -> layouts and tell me which keyboard model is selected?00:02
Adpadhischild: it works for my keyboard - logitech mx500000:02

sveakexSoleone: download the kde4 live cd from their website to have a real look at it ;)00:02
StPatrickGIn,  When I try to use compiz, it won't load, and i have trouble getting a game to work, that should be working in linux00:03
hischildAdpad, by default amarok won't accept global multimedia shortcuts.00:03
sveakexSoleone: i haven't seen kde4 irl, it looks good, but i am probably going to stick with gnome00:03
Soleonesveakex: i have. but i did not install it, so i had to 3d effects, still very nice and shiny00:03

Kenshi_Queria avisar a vocês que tem gente vendendo cds de Ubuntu Linux no MERCADO LIVRE.00:17
tim1sveakex: The configuration file doesn't seem to be created automatically, does it?00:17
krimI used to use the negative thingy on Compiz at night so it wouldn't be like staring into a lightbulb but now I switched to Darklooks theme which makes the colours look alright, but is there a way to make the white background on pages I visit with Firefox into black?00:17
cockroackhello, if i do the mount by force, is there any possibilities of ruining my data?00:17

sveakexSoleone: try "sudo apt-get update"00:20
eduardoStPatrick: that wont let me talk on invisible status00:21
matthew_could the package me messed up?00:21
Adpadcharles|64: I don't think you can use media keys in compiz - I might be wrong -- you can try manually mapping it if you can find a way on the web -- to find out what it maps to, try assigning the particular button to something else in the keyboard shortcuts we were talking about earlier00:21
Shiithe USB seems to be supplying power but it doesn't talk to ubuntu00:21
StPatrickeduardo,  It lets me.00:21

matthew_but they aren't there.00:22
GIneduardo: u can get it at http://www.getdeb.net/00:22
eduardomatthew_: reboot after installing and see what happens00:22
tim1matthew_: I prefer LightTPD, it's easier to set up and much faster. YouTube is also using a modified version of it.00:22
GIneduardo: don't think it is in the repo, but check the repo first, if not , go to http://www.getdeb.net/00:23
tim1matthew_: You don't need to restart.00:23
Dr_willisAdpad,  i belive theres a bit of a bug with the nvidia drivers and video playvback that can cause that issue I had similer issue on one of my machines. It would play vidoes fine for a while.  even days.. then it would get all blocky/garbled but sound still worked.00:23
tim1matthew_: You need to restart the apache server: /etc/init.d/apache restart I think.00:23
Soleonesveakex: yea. i made a typo i deleted another directory: E: Archive directory /var/cache/apt/archives/partial is missing.00:23
matthew_timl: Can it support php5?00:23
Dr_willisAdpad,  Im using Hardy Now - it has newer nvidia drivers. Not seen the issue under it.00:23
Shiihow do i mount my mp3 player? :/00:24
Kenshi_Well anyone knows if Hardy solves that firefox slowdown problem that happens when compiz is enabled with ATI cards?00:24
Soleonesveakex: i accidently deleted everything in /var/cache/apt00:24
tim1Shii: With mount.00:24
AdpadDr_willis: that's exactly what happens to me -- excellent - so I can expect hardy to probably fix the issue?00:24
tim1matthew_: Yes it does.00:24
Shiibut it's a USB player...00:24
AdpadDr_willis: so I'll wait for April 25 ;) Thanks a lot00:24
sveakextim1: this is hilarious, i went here so i could check out what fonts the ubuntu terminal uses by default so i can apply it to my gentoo desktop, and now i end up helping about 3 people :P00:24
eduardoGIn: yeah, its not in the repo00:24
matthew_Out of the box? or what package?00:24
Kenshi_The beta does?00:24
Dr_willisAdpad,  yep. I never did see any real info on the bug. just lots of reports on it.00:24
tim1matthew_: My LightTPD server is now running for about 3 months without any problems.00:24
AdpadDr_willis: same thing here :/00:24
sveakexSoleone: what happened when you tried to update apt like i told you to?00:24
GIneduardo: http://getdeb.net/search.php?keywords=emesene00:24
Soleonethe error i told you00:25
matthew_timl: Does it support php5 out of the box? Or what package do I need?00:25
tim1sveakex: Hehe. I know this. :D00:25
Dr_willisAdpad,  it seems that the nvidia 'universial' drivers dont always work with the same named cards/chips :( Gettng to be a lot of varity in the nvidia cards even witht he same ##00:25
tim1matthew_: You need to install the php5-cgi package.00:25
matthew_ok00:25
Soleonesveakex:  Archive directory /var/cache/apt/archives/partial is missing.00:25
matthew_I'll try that00:25
matthew_thanks!00:25
sveakexSoleone: ok, let me have a good think00:26
tim1matthew_: After having installed it, you need to go to the configuration file and enable the module.00:26
matthew_ok00:26
rZoghi, i just have a problem with installing ubuntu.. the installer doesnt detect all my partitions.. it just detects my hd. winxp is abel to detect all partitions correct. does someone has any idea what exactly is broken ?00:26
Shiii have no idea what command to run to make ubuntu recognize a USB device.00:26
eduardodoes anybody know any tweaks to enhance navigation speed?00:26
AdpadDr_willis:  it's a pity :( also had difficulty getting dual monitors to wrok - still haven't managed. I'm hoping hardy will fix these problems!00:26
sveakextim1: hehe, i like ubuntu though on computers i don't want to configure :P00:26
=== Pici` is now known as Pici
tim1Shii: Yes, MP3 players are nothing else than an external drive.00:27
sveakextim1: like laptops, i hate configuring laptops00:27
matthew_timl: Where is the config file?00:27
Shiiyup. i set it up that way. but i plug it in and nothing happens.00:27
bastid_raZoreduardo; use command line instead of the GUI to browse.. MUCH faster00:27
Soleonesveakex: thanks00:27
tim1sveakex: Me too. :)00:27
kdorfShii: type "lsusb" in command line to see if ubuntu detected your device00:28
sveakexSoleone: alright, i know what to do "sudo mkdir /var/cache/apt/archives/partial && sudo apt-get update"00:28

tim1matthew_: Ok, type in: sudo lighty-enable-mod fastcgi00:28
kdorfIf it did, that's a good thing 'cause you can mount it manually00:28
sveakexSoleone: obviously without the ""00:28
Shiioh... it only sees 3 USB drives. how sad :(00:28
Dr_willisAdpad,  multi monitor - ive had no issues with. I enable twniview with the nvidia config tools. and away it goes00:28
tim1matthew_: And then go to /etc/lighttpd/conf-available/10-fastcgi.conf00:28
Soleonesveakex: thx, i'll try00:28
kdorfIs one port bad possibly?00:28
sveakextim1: hehe, what do you use on your desktop?00:28
sroddenAnyone know why I get a kernel panic in the VM when trying to install a Gutsy VM?00:28
bastid_raZoreduardo; oh.. navigation.. i didn't relate navigation with browsing the internet..00:28
tim1sveakex: You mean, which window manager I'm using?00:29
tim1sveakex: I'm using wmii.00:29
AdpadDr_willis: which nvidia config tools - how do you access them? ;)00:29
eduardobastid_raZor: my bad00:29
sveakextim1: which os00:29
tim1sveakex: Ubuntu Hardy Heron. :)00:29
sveakextim1: hehe, which version number is that? :p00:29
tim1sveakex: 8.10 I think :D00:29
bastid_raZoreduardo; using limewire though.. you've probably had your ip tracked and are now being throttled by your ISP00:30
matthew_timl: Then do I just force reload on the server?00:30
Soleonesveakex: woohoo, thanks a lot (though i could've just tried myself making the dir :)00:30
sveakextim1: 8.10!? 8.10 will be realesed in 2008 october00:30
tim1matthew_: In /etc/init.d there's a file called lighttpd.00:30
sveakexSoleone: you're welcome :)00:30
Shiithanks for your help timl, looks like only 2 of my 4 USB ports work :)00:30
eduardobastid_raZor: anyway to fix that?00:30
Soleonesveakex: looking deeper into Krusader, i must say, this is definitely the best file manager i could think of00:30
tim1sveakex: Really? How can I check the version number?00:30
sveakextim1: try doing a "uname -a"00:31
Kenshi_Hardy's restricted drivers for ATI cards support AIGLX?00:31
tim1sveakex: It's still beta but it will be relased in one month or something.00:31

sveakexSoleone: hehe, i am satisfied with nautilus or just using a terminal :P00:31
J-Unitwen will hardy be available thru shipit?00:31
tim1sveakex: This will show up the kernel version.00:31
KrimZonwhat package should contain libGL.a in hardy?00:31
matthew_timl: Ok, I have it open00:31
sveakextim1: hm, 8.04 well be released in 12 days (about)00:31
iceswordhardy heron .goes out00:32
bastid_raZoreduardo; call your ISP.. but i don't that is the case.. i'm justing being cynical. not sure why your connection would slow.. possibly your upload is maxed out?00:32
Soleonesveakex: i already have midnight commander installed on my server, that's cool. thanks for the pointing to it00:32
tim1J-Unit: Good question. I hope it will be available soon. The last time I ordered some CDs it took me about one month.00:32
tim1sveakex: Yeah, that's what I've installed here. :)00:32
sveakexSoleone: you're welcome, is it an ubuntu server?00:32
sroddenWhere can I get a copy of a vanilla 7.10 /etc/gdm/PreSession/Default please?00:33
sveakextim1: the version numbers work this: 8(year).04(month)00:33
Soleonesveakex: no just debian 4 i think00:33
scottyLI'm following an installation guide for 7.10 Server, and I just finished installing the basic LAMP package00:33
sveakextim1: therefore 8.04 will be released in april 200800:33
tim1matthew_: I forgot to say that you need to edit the file /etc/lighttpd/conf-available/10-fastcgi.conf in which /usr/bin/php5-cgi must be replaced by /usr/bin/php5-cgi.00:33
Soleonesveakex: how can i print the version of the OS?00:33
scottyLIt's telling me to set up a static IP00:34

eduardosveakex: i met a girl from norway on spring break and did her too :))00:42
Dr_willisAdpad,  thers 2 nvidia tools, one is command line based, other is X based.  I tend to set things up with the cli tool first, then restart X, then tweak with the Other one. I think the command WITH the X is command line .. :) one with no X in the name is the X tool.. figure that out00:42
sveakexSoleone: however i don't use deabian, i use gentoo00:42
kdorfI can't get them to burn in the nautilus plugin or brasero00:42

ChardrosIntangir, did you install jackd?00:53
bastid_raZortim1; you got killall to work right?00:53
sveakexSoleone: it is lightweight, simple (this doesn't mean easy), very update to date packages, which could make it a tad unstable sometimes, and it is optimized for x86 processors. it also doesn't install a lot of programs by default, so you will have to install gnome for instance by yourself. but it is only what i like :)00:53
TelnetMantalol00:53
Dr_willisTelnetManta,  and they are stored in .bash_history I think00:53

Intangiralsa can use it sorta.. (not very conveniently)00:54
Intangirbut wine cant seem to use it00:54
TailsfanHello00:54
sveakextim1: so you use ubuntu to avoid compiling everything?00:54
Intangirwine wont use my jackinputs directly thru jack, and cant seem to use them thru alsa either00:54

windio00sveakex, should i install the beta or is there a daily update of xubuntu?00:55
tim1sveakex: Yep.00:55
sveakexwindio00: hm, wait until 8.04 is realesed, which is in a week or 2.00:55
tim1sveakex: I hate compiling. That's why I like interpreting languages like PHP. :D00:55

GravityParadeIm not crazy00:57
GravityParadeNeither am I00:57
bastid_raZortim1; true,, reason i gave killall was apache has several things running at once.. so ps aux | grep apache2 would have come back with about 4 apache2's to kill.. killall would have taken them out.. -9 isn't necessary but can't hurt00:57
sveakexwindio00: ah, is it a laptop?00:57
=== raijin is now known as Twar3
Davieybastid_raZor: sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 stop <-- safer00:57

Soleonetiml: you sure must take a second look at ruby, believe me. it's worth it. no sane man can whole-heartedly say that php is more expressive (and cleaner) than ruby :)00:59
tim1bastid_raZor: Which idea?00:59
sveakexwindio00: you can have partition mounted at / which is 6-10gb large, and the rest on /home. and then install 7.10 and then 8.04 when you come back, and not touching the /home partition00:59
sveakexSoleone: is ruby for webbdevelopment?01:00
DarkJusticeIndyGunFreak: not sure if this might help anyone else but I found this site for 5.1 channel in linux..... http://www.cse.ohio-state.edu/~bondhugu/alsamch.shtml01:00
ryanzecSolene: oh, please tell me why ruby is so much better than php, i would love to hear it :)01:00
Soleonesveakex: not only for web dev, but very good for it yes01:00
tim1Soleone: I have already looked at ruby. There are some cool classes which don't exist in PHP but I think PHP is superior since nearly everything is written in purely C/C++ so it's much faster.01:00
danbhfivesveakex: ruby is a language comparable to python01:00
Intangiranyone here running wine? run winecfg and tell me if you see 'jack' as an available audio option01:00
sveakexdanbhfive: aha, ok, i see01:00
DavieySoleone: & tim1, fancy taking it to pm or #ubuntu-offtopic ?01:00
Soleoneryanzec: everything is an object. which allows cool syntax (domain specific language)01:01
tim1sveakex: There's Ruby on Rails which can be used for webdevelopment.01:01
sveakextim1: ok01:01
Soleonetiml: most classes in ruby at the backend are also in C01:01
SoleoneDaviey: sorry01:01
tim1Daviey: Sorry, I can't pm since I haven't registered an account here.01:01

ubotuHardy Heron is the code name for the next release of Ubuntu (8.04-LTS), due April 24, 2008 - For more info, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardyHeron - CONSIDER IT TO BE BETA SOFTWARE - Discussion and support in #ubuntu+1, NOT #ubuntu01:02
sveakexwindio00: you can also install that an reinstall01:02
tim1herby_: The log class.01:02
Soleonesveakex and timl: ICQ: 326-800-91601:02
Davieywindio00: it's classed as unstable until release.. feel free to try it on a testing machine - just don't rely upon it01:02
tim1Soleone: Thanks.01:03
sveakexSoleone: aiight, i need make an icq account first :P01:03
sveakextim1: hbu?01:03
Soleonesveakex: msn and icq are compatible01:03
windio00sveakex, if i install 8.04 beta there is at least a chance that it would switch over ok to 8.04 stable right?01:03
sveakexSoleone: they are?01:03
Davieywindio00: yes01:03
tim1sveakex: hbu?01:03

sveakextim1: how about you01:03
tim1Soleone: Really? I thought AIM and ICQ were compatible.01:03
Davieyshingalated: yes, you can easily - use virtual hosts01:04
tim1sveakex: What does hbu stand for.01:04
tim1ah01:04
sveakextim1: just told you :)01:04
Soleonetiml: ? they are comtabible..01:04
ryanzecSolene: if everything is a object that that is pretty weak.  Sure php array and string function are a pain in the ass but that alone is not really worth switching.  sveakex i would take a look at ruby and php and deside what you like best if you are look for web development.  they both can do pretty much the same and just in a different way.01:04

vkennedy85Is it possible to delete the windows partition after I've set it up to dual boot?02:03
Sam827_Andrew: hold on. before we start with this, I need to get my trackpad working02:04
skarfacevkennedy85: yes02:04
mark[oz]blbrown, if your using nvidia.. drop to shell and type sudo nvidia-settings02:04

adrian_2002caumm...my system tray area dissapeared..how do i get it back???02:04
Sam827_Andrew: I can't right click02:04
jking_vkennedy as long as you are using grub and not windows bootloader02:04
vkennedy85jking: grub?02:04
Peloadrian_2002ca, right click on the pannel, add to pannel ,  notification area02:04
jking_grub = grand unifed bootloader02:05
adrian_2002caoh, that's what its called, thanks Pelo02:05
vkennedy85jking: how do I know if I'm using that or not?02:05
Peloadrian_2002ca, you are not in windows anymore02:05
FastZSam827: you should have said that the trackpad was your first problem when someone asked you that, instead of telling them it was  your mic02:05
jking_you should see it mention grub during the first few seconds of boot after your bios screens02:05
_AndrewSam827, ok, Did you have a look at UbuntuForums.org ? I'm not so sure about trackpads, but I believe you need to edit your xorg.conf02:05
adrian_2002caPelo, i know, just didnt know tha name of it :P02:05
Sam827FastZ: I know, I'm sorry, it slipped my mind02:05
Pelovkennedy85, unless you purposefully installed another one , that 's the one tha installs with ubuntu02:05
skarfacejking_: considering vkennedy85 would've had to explicitly set that up, don't you think that's a useless caveat?02:06
glenn69My middle mouse button no longer copies last highlighted text?  What could have happened?02:06
vkennedy85Pelo: Ok, I just followed the ubuntu cd setup02:06
jking_not really if you install windows first and linux second you have grub02:06
jking_if you install linux first and windows second you have windows bootloader02:06
jking_that would have prob been a better question02:07
Sam827_Andrew: I tried that, but what happened was when I rebooted, X11 brokedown and I had to fix the xorg using command-line.02:07
skarfacejking_: which you would have to explicitly set up to start linux anyway. you're making it more complicated than it is.02:07
jking_true sorry that is true02:07
vkennedy85it's far easier to set up partitions etc with Linux than WIndows right?02:07
Pelojking_, I'm not sure that windows installs a bootloader that recognises linux , maybe other windows version but not linux , it probably skips the bootloader if it is linux02:07

Pelovkennedy85, we thinks so02:08

_AndrewSam827, Yeah, this is probably the hardest thing you're going to have to configure. I can't help you much on trackpads because mine worked out of the box so I've never had to deal with it.02:08

_Andrewn00b_^^, http://www.debuntu.org/how-to-install-ubuntu-linux-on-usb-bar02:22
bazhangSam827: unless you give some specific details of what you have tried, what worked and what did not, and what errors you have gotten, then you might not get much help here02:22
Sam827dhanraj: already tried that02:22
gogetapelo its due to the constent read wrights it burns a flash drive out02:23
tininskarface, just the same way as ubuntu I guess ;)  Have you ever connected to Instant Messengers using irssi+bitlbee?02:23
skarfacetinin: sure02:23
Pelogogeta, I'm not the one asking02:23
n00b_^^thanks all BTw a bit lazy to write a CD :D02:23
gogetalol02:23
fbc_Andrew, FastZ, the point of this is to be able to install ubuntu from a USB external drive instead of the CD (realy slow). So I basically want to boot the live CD off my hard drive. The tutorial I found are for flash drives and invlove erasing the whole drive.. I just want to partition it properly for the CD.02:23
Sam827bazhang, My trackpad can't right click, my muc doesn't work, my wifi doesnt work02:23
skarfacebut in past versions of ubuntu I had to install stuff that didn't get installed automatically02:23
skarfaceto get bitlbee to work02:23
Sam827bazhang: thats it i think02:23
gogetan00b be ready to buy a new flashdrive in a week02:23
linkinxpwhy could be the reason for my Wireless icon , Bluetooth icon , ( only 2 icons i have right now loading in startup) takes from 10 seg to 20 to load after the pc boot up?02:24
bazhangthat is a myth about the read/write02:24
CoasterMasterAt Costco they have packs of 4 flash drives02:24
_Andrewfbc, Oh you want an external hard drive, I thought you meant flash02:24
Pelogogeta, I remember someone mentionning there is a way around that, someting you need to tweak02:24
Sam827bazhang: i never get errors, it just doesnt work02:24
n00b_^^hehe why??02:24
fbc_Andrew, FastZ , I'm having a free ubuntu install fest in guadalajara this weekend on the university campus.02:24
chris062689Evenin'02:24
gogetapelo well you can run it in ram of dump it in a temp file on the harddisk02:24
Pelofbc, will the beer be free as well02:24
n00b_^^why what will happen to pen drive02:25
gogetapelo to reduce the strees alot02:25
_AndrewSo you want to connect the hard drive and install from that?02:25
skarfacetinin: is there some reason you chose debian rather than ubuntu (and asked for help with debian here)? ;P02:25
tininskarface I'm going to read a bit, I'm really lost02:25
fbcPelo, I wish... something like 'brohemian raphsody'02:25
bazhangSam827: all of this problems are eminently fixable; many folks run ubuntu well on their macbooks/macbook pros; the first order of business is always wifi though02:25
n00b_^^any other way round to it.... i mean not using Flash drive and cd to intall ubuntu02:25
jking_hooray loomix is hard02:25
jking_lol02:25
Sam827bazhang: OK02:25
Pelofbc, you won'T see me there then02:25
bazhangn00b_^^: sure just mount the iso and run from that02:26
jking_xchat just borked w00t02:26
gogetan00b for a install you should be fine02:26
* Pelo will not be driving 2000 miles if there is no free beer at the end 02:26
gogetan00b using it as your hd is the drive killer02:26
fbcPelo, but there are chicks.. ubuntu chicks02:26
bazhanggogeta: that is largely a myth02:26
_Andrewfbc, Sounds awesome.02:26
Pelofbc, there are chicks over here02:26
fbcPelo, I hear they are into the freeware concept.02:26
tininskarface, yeah, I use debian at home, but with an old notebook with 32 of ram... only debian could work well in it, it's really nice and functional, now I just need a way to use msn02:27
n00b_^^how do i mount the Iso and boot from it ..... :s02:27
_Andrewfbc, So you want the install disk on your extern hard drive?02:27
skarfacetinin: I don't see any reason ubuntu server wouldn't work just as well02:27
fbc_Andrew, you got it bud02:27
tininsoryy kubuntu at home skarface02:27
bazhangn00b_^^: you also run windows?02:27
gogetabazhang largly hey02:27

n00b_^^i run Winxp pro02:27
n00b_^^too02:28
bazhanggogeta: I've run it on my eeepc for a long while and no degradation whatsoever02:28
gogetathen why do all pen distros but ubuntu do everything they can to reduce the read wrights02:28
bazhangn00b_^^: consider Wubi then02:28
_Silhouette_I'm trying to install ubuntu on my external hard drive (format partition) and it just hangs at 33%! what's wrong?02:28

IndyGunFreakneeto: i like acidrip02:31
_Andrewfbc, You know I don't see a CD being any slower. The most important thing you're going to need is an internet connection to download extra packages.02:31
neetoIndyGunFreak: sounds good, I'll try it out, thanks.02:31
gogetafbc cd slower????02:31
fbc_Andrew, yeah.. that the second part...02:32
IndyGunFreakneeto: np, hope it works out02:32
fbcgogeta, then a usb2 connected external drive?02:32
Sam827bazhang: can you help me get wifi working?02:32
_Andrewfbc, Or you could download alot of packages and set yourself up as a repository, let people connect and download from you.02:32
gogetafbc oh the usb 2 drive would give you more speed02:32
_Silhouette_IndyGunFreak: my internal HD died. Also, it recognizes the drive OK, but the install is hanging on 33%02:32
gogetafbc but a hardrive is always the best02:33

fbcgogeta, I got an external sata on a usb2 connector02:33
gogetafbc oh that will work fine02:34
fbcgogeta, I just need instructions on how to go about setting it up...02:34

Peloshanepardue, the grub entry for that partitons shoud pretty much be the same as usual I beleive but for an extra switch,  you would probably have better luck ask ing in #grub tho03:06
Flinxshanepardue: Ok, thanks. Can envy get sources for nvidia kernel module?03:06
Flinxshanepardue: I know envy can install drivers, but i need to compile it from sources03:06
Pelokindofabuzz, rigth click on the desktop and sort the icons it might jsut be outside the desktop atm03:07
shaneparduePelo: I copied and pasted my grub entry from the previous install and that didn't work. I may try the grub channel03:07
Peloshanepardue, the hd0,0 of your new install might not be the same, same can the said for the uuid , you may need to edit those03:08

neur0nhow do i install the nvidia manager?03:09
Peloneur0n, look in synaptic I beleive it is called nvidia-settings03:09
neur0nPelo: didn't find it -(03:10
shaneparduePelo: I'm not sure how my entry could be affected by uuid or different device number..it's the same machine and my grub doesn't include uuid. I believe the problem has something to do with the referencing of /dev/mapper/sda8_crypt. Doesn't that have to be unlocked first somehow?03:11
Peloneur0n, sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings03:11
kadkoI'm sorry if I download the Ubuntu Hardy when it will be oficial released my "beta vercion" will update to the final vercion or i need to redownload the new vercion?03:11
shaneparduekadko: you can update from the beta without a new version download03:12
Peloshanepardue, I woudn'T know about that,  but uuid will change if you repartition and boot order will affect the device number in grub,  but I was jsut offering suggestions03:12

_AndrewMegiddo,  Yeah you're probably better checking #ubuntu+1 and launchpad.net , it might actually be a bug03:19
Peloneur0n, never mind I just realised, you probably donT' have all the repositories enabled,  go in  > menu > system > admin > software sources,  chck everybox on the first tab and every box on the 3rd tab , then exit and reload,  then type sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings in a terminal03:19

gogetascottyl might be do to you not using the live cd or something03:58
_AndrewJPSman, I meant click on Places and Home Folder by the way03:58
scottyLgogeta: Not using the live CD?03:58
gogetascottyl ya ubuntus not grabbing th firmware nedded03:59
Pelordg, no idea then, but if you have ubuntu running , it should get automounted , so it might already be mounted to /media03:59
rdgPelo - this is from the Ubuntu installer03:59
GunbladeIVno one knows the solution for my problem?03:59
JPSman_Andrew: This is uber frustrating.  I have to go between rooms because that's where the wireless signals are :O(03:59
gogetascottyl the installer/live cd probly does03:59
Pelordg, live cd or cli ?03:59
JPSman_Andrew : no it didn't work03:59
scottyLgogeta: But, what should I do? Download the CD and then put that in? It's in the middle of installing03:59

StPatrickIf i have a program that only works in windows, how Do i use it in Ubuntu 7.1?04:03
dmsupermanStPatrick: WINE04:03
_Andrewdmsuperman, Maybe it's your mic boost settings04:03
Pelo!wine | StPatrick04:04
ubotuStPatrick: 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.04:04
gogetascottyL well a server and live cd are no diffrent and if your tossing kde on it04:04
_Andrewdmsuperman, Check your volume control for mic boost and mute it04:04
StPatrickPelo,  DO any windows programs work, or only compatible ones?04:04
gogetascottyL why not just reformat the dam thing04:04
gogetascottyL fix the botched net install04:04
_Andrewdmsuperman, You might need to go edit->preferences to find it04:04
scottyLgogeta: heh, installing KDE was the third thing I did after formatting it04:05
PeloStPatrick, not all windows progs work in wine but most do now , and more in the future,  it the prog is not heavily graphics oriented like games  it will probably work well04:05
JPSman_Andrew: So I dont have to set up anything on PC1 for PC2 to connect to PC1?04:05
neo_hello all04:05
PeloStPatrick, what't the program anyway ?04:05
gogetascottyL lol04:05
gogetascottyL yea using the reg live cd woulda saved you alot of time04:05
scottyLgogeta: Ok, so what I should do is restart with the CD in, format it exactly as I had before, but before installing KDE I do what the link you had sent to me tells me to do?04:05
StPatrickPelo,  It's a download client that most peopl ewouldn't know anything about. Private stuff.04:05
_AndrewJPSman, just try that, it should bring up a login box to your other computer04:05
dmsuperman_Andrew: I couldn't find any mic boost, but i muted both the mic input and output04:05
PeloStPatrick, well,  utorrent works very well on wine so I guess your's probably will as well04:06
gogetascottyL just dl the reg kubuntu live cd04:06
gogetascottyL install ubuntu w kde04:06
StPatrickPelo,  It's not torrent oriented, but I can only hope.04:06
aconbereis there a way in ssh to set an identity file per user on a host?04:06
_Andrewdmsuperman, Does the sound stop when they're muted?04:06
dmsupermanno04:06
scottyLgogeta: So, I reformat it with the Live CD?04:06
gogetascottyL arg04:06
MacBook0621-07would A APC backupups r900 work with ubuntu?04:07
_Andrewdmsuperman, I think it's defiantly your mic boost setting.04:07
gogetascottyL dont bother with the server install04:07
StPatrickPelo, Think you can hlep me out if i run into trouble04:07
LSGDoes anybody know why i could be getting error messages when removing a slave SATA drive from a computer?04:07
PeloStPatrick, I mean wine handles web apps,    install wine sudo apt-get install wine ,  run the program's installer with  wine /path/setup.exe ,  run the prog with wine /path/file.exe04:07
dmsuperman_Andrew: where's that at?04:07
PeloStPatrick, ppl in #winehq can help you there04:07
_Andrewdmsuperman, Do you see a volume icon on your panel?04:07
dmsupermanargh, since my monitor settings are screwed i can't even see the whole sound prefs window04:07
PeloLSG,  unmout it first04:07
gogetascottyL thers no diffrence between ubuntu server and ubuntu with a gui other then 1 does not have a gui04:07
dmsuperman_Andrew: aye, i have that window open, but i don't see anything for mic boost in any of the tabs04:07
MacBook0621-07_Andrew: You would't happen to mean the out datesd at form factor?04:07
Tack122Andrew, I am in the live disc Ubuntu at the moment and when I choose "use the largest continuous free space it tells me "failed to partition the selected disk, this probably happened because the selected disk or free space is too small to be automatically partitioned.04:08
scottyLgogeta: Sorry, I'm very new at this and my real objective here is to install a server that I can SSH anywhere04:08
owen1can i create a server if my machine is connected with wireless?04:08

Peloowen1, probably it just sounds complicated04:08
_AndrewMacBook0621-07, huh?04:08
PeloLSG, what's the msg ?04:08
gogetascottyL otherwise you would not have ran the kde installer04:08
LSGPelo: The thing just stops the startup process and tells me there's some problem with the slave drive.04:08
scottyLgogeta: Whoops, last one wasn't supposed to be a /msg04:09
PeloLSG, it's probably looking for it from the bios and not finding it04:09
_AndrewTack122, The IDE, does it already have something on there?04:09
LSGPelo: I've messed around with computers for at least a decade and i've never seen this....04:09
scottyLgogeta: Yes, I do want a gui04:09
dmsuperman_Andrew: I checked every box in there, but there's no mic boost. I did mute everything relating the mics though04:09
Tack122No, the IDE is completely empty.04:09
gogetakey guys the desktop cd has lamp doesent it04:09

owen1Pelo: all i want is a computer where i know it's address so i can send my backup files to.04:10
LSGPelo: I miss the old BIOS's =(04:10
PeloLSG, check the bios settings,  it might be listed as second boot device or someting04:10
JPSman_Andrew: I get "natulis cannot display ss://ipaddress"04:10
scottyLPelo: Unfortunately, it's already installing with the command: sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop04:10
JPSman_Andrew: er "natulis cannot display ssh://ipaddress"04:10
Peloowen1, not the best person to ask04:10
dmsuperman_Andrew: Alright. Even unplugging the mic doesn't fix anything. And the static has moved to the right channel :'(04:10
PeloscottyL,  just be patient then04:11
scottyLPelo: But, it's stuck on the bcm43xx_microcode5.fw error04:11
scottyLPelo: *nod*04:11
gogetapelo i told him just to get a desktop cd save alot of issues04:11
LSGPelo: Alright, i'll do that. I'll tell you how it works out =)04:11
PeloscottyL, kill it ,04:11
dmsuperman_Andrew: But I'll check #alsa, after i get my x working again. what's the command to run the xorg.conf reconf script?04:11
owen1Pelo: ok. thanks04:11
gogetahes installing that anyways04:11
_AndrewJPSman, It needs to be the ip address of the computer you're trying to connect to.. for example ssh://192.168.1.104:11
dmsuperman_Andrew: something like sudo dpgk-reconfigure something04:11
Pelogogeta,  it would save download that is sure04:11
gogetapelo no point in server to desktop being desktop has the same tols04:12
PeloLSG, no promisses, this is just the usual trouble shoting stuff,  , it gets stuck at the bios, look in the bios04:12
_Andrewsudo dpgk-reconfigure xserver xorg I think..04:12
scottyLPelo: Alright, just to make sure... you want me to kill the installation? How do I do that?04:12
_AndrewTack122, I mean was it a windows partition?04:13
gogetascottyL well get a desktop cd ready04:13
LSGPelo: I know nothing's ever certain when troubleshooting. Especially if it's my sister's stuff, believe me.04:13
Pelogogeta, the kubuntu desktop cd has a lot more packages in the install,  a sever install is pretty lean in comparison,  if he wants a server with just a gui on it , installing ther server and then just putting kde on top will take a lot less space then the full dekstop04:13
_AndrewTack122, Is it an unformatted IDE disk?04:13
lordleemogogeta: scottys problem sounds like restricted drivers m804:13
PeloscottyL, not quite sure,  change consol and sudo killall -9 apt ? maybe04:13

LSGabdoreza: Not to be rude or anything, but if you have a question, ask away and someone will pick it up.04:14
_AndrewTack122, You could try unplugging the sata drives then installing, or you could try installing Ubuntu in windows, via Wubi on your windows partition.04:15
Tack122What exactly do you mean by windows partition?04:15
Tack122Seems I got disconnected there.04:15
_AndrewJPSman, How are you doing, is it working now?04:15
JPSman_Andrew: Is that the same kind of IP address that one would find at http://whatismyip.com ?04:15
abdorezaI have not question04:15
gogetalordleemo better for him just to go desktop being that was pretty mutch what he was doing anywyas04:16

robert___1111finally thanks everything worked05:16
travisatCrshman: just out of curiousity why?05:16
_AndrewTack122, Or you don't have it plugged in, or it's formatted a windows partition and doesn't want to get rid of it05:16
robert___1111the reason why i did it was to get moonlight plugin working05:16
robert___1111anyone done this?05:16
flybackwhat chipset is the pata controller05:16
chris42050707flyback: is in normal for 7.10 to put ide in the scsi category?05:16

nickrudodin autohinter, see /etc/fonts/conf.avail/10-autohint.conf05:17
Tack122Okay, how would I go about that?05:17
gort42k1dugar: you'll be hard pressed to find an app to pull firmware off a device unless it was coded from the manufacturer or some 3rd party05:17

flybacktritium: stfu05:17
odinthanks nickrud!05:17

chris42050707i guess so lol05:22

chris42050707you think if i turn that off my optical probs would solve themselves?05:24
carlzenoxmattias: yes sirr05:24
flybackI dunno05:24
chris42050707ill give it a try05:24
chris42050707be back in a few05:24
bookmark_it says you can specify a cypher, and lists like 4 or 5 of them05:24
bookmark_but i dunno if ubuntu has em05:25
mattiasyou will find in ther but maybe as well with sudo apt-get might work as well, i prefer to use the graphical interface ...05:25
travisatmattias: it happens to be an xvid file and ffmpeg works but vlc's internal decoder doesn't05:25
Tack122Yes, they are unplugged entirely the only other thing aside from the IDE hard drive would be the IDE based CD drive.05:25
mattiastravisat:  xvid ???, let me check something ...05:25
travisatmattias: I am trying to get more exact codec05:25
oxeimonso I connected an external harddrive via usb, copied something onto it, and once the copy was finished, I disconnected it(without manually unmounting). Now when I reconnect it, it says that it cannot mount volume: "Unable to mount the volume 'STORE-IT'. Record 5 has no FILE magic: Input/output error Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1':Input/output error NTFS is either inconsistent, or you have hardware faults, or you have a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware..."05:26
_AndrewTack122, Then that'll be the hard drive you want to install on.. what are your options when it comes to formatting?05:26
dmsupermantritium, do you know much about randr?05:26
oxeimonhow do I fix that?05:26
mattiastravisat:  let me check i would bet ubuntu have xvid codec to install but let me check05:26
egcanybody from mountain view?05:26

dmsupermanxtknight, I can't. When I open it, it says my xorg.conf isn't configured to use nvidia settings, and tells me to run "nvidia-xconfig" and reset X05:47
_Andrewuncontrol, Sure why not05:47
neur0ntheres logaout, hibernate and switch user. but no reboot or restart05:48
xtknightdmsuperman, have you tried this?05:48
uncontrolcool 8)05:48
dmsupermanxtknight, once I do that, and try nvidia-settings again, it says the exact same thing, even though it edits xorg.conf05:48
tomoyuki28jpskelband: how can I check my kernel config?05:48
xtknightdmsuperman, try "sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf && sudo nvidia-xconfig && sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart" (this will reset your Xorg config to nvidia defaults, and restart X)05:48
xtknightdmsuperman, the key might be to remove the current xorg conf.  xconfig otherwise just updates/merges05:48
dmsupermanxtknight, alright, bbias05:49

owen1does dvd player display subtitles just like totem does?06:24
barikulkol_pogi_yahoo keeps on changing the way their messenger works neglecting other 3rd party clients06:24
xtknightdmsuperman_, well "sudo apt-get --purge remove nvidia-glx-new".  apparently your only option is to use drivers from nvidia.com manually.06:24
barikulkol_pogi_they keeps neglecting open-source, yet they owe so much from it06:24
nick123you have those things in gizmo or pidgin06:24
Scunizinick123, maybe if you're lucky Yahoo will create a sip compatable  messenger so they are more compatible with the rest of the world.06:24
barikulkol_pogi_can i use gizmo in yahoo messenger?06:24
xtknightdmsuperman_, the drivers included with Gutsy 7.10 are too old for you card.06:24
xtknightdmsuperman_, Hardy beta would support it , probably06:25
nick123what you mean06:25
dmsuperman_xtknight, doesn't apt-get get them from the internet?06:25
barikulkol_pogi_better use linux mint, it's what ubuntu should be!06:25
barikulkol_pogi_even had compiz-fusion06:25
Scunizibarikulkol_pogi_, dude.. you're in the wrong room..06:25
xtknightdmsuperman_, yes, but it only gets them from the supported ubuntu repositories which may contain older "stable" versions of software so that Canonical/Ubuntu can support them.06:25
barikulkol_pogi_98% of linux mint is ubuntu06:25
nick123someone know how to fix the nvidia after kernel update06:25
Scunizinick123, are you on Gutsy or hardy?06:26

bazhangLokey: what does lsb_release -a say in the terminal for you06:32
dmsuperman_xtknight, the update said "Fetched 3B in 1s (3B/s)" at the bottom, and the upgrade didn't upgrade anything06:32
* Scunizi thinks bazhang takes power naps throughout a 24 hour period. 15min @ a time06:32

xtknightdmsuperman, ah so it wa supdated.  ok now do06:33
xtknightdmsuperman_, first we need to install tools to build nvidia drivers.  type "sudo apt-get build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)"06:33
unstablextknight: ok, I have a normal grub menu now, and I can boot windows XP from it, but I can't boot into ubuntu or memtest06:33
dmsuperman_done06:33
xtknightunstable, ok well ideally i would have seen the menu.lst after you edited /etc/fstab and re-ran update-grub?06:33
xtknightdmsuperman_, alright.  so now sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop06:33
hurrrtinxtknight: Is there a way to tell dpkg to disregard the errors and proceed?06:33
stdinhurrrtin: you'd have to remove the lib32rsvg2-common package to install the vmware-server package06:33

hurrrtinxtknight: no, from apt-get...06:34
xtknighthurrrtin, oh might be a bug then06:34
stdinhurrrtin: using --force* with dpkg may not be a good idea, as any upgrade to vmware-server or lib32rsvg2-common will produce the same error again06:34
dmsupermanxtknight: k06:35
Lokeybazhang: Yea06:35
hurrrtinstdin: remove --purge 'ing that lib worked.06:35
xtknightdmsuperman, then "sudo sh NVIDIAxxxx...run"06:35

hurrrtinScunizi: I think its ok if you got a serial directly from vmware06:36
unstablextknight: http://rafb.net/p/EbVpV765.html .. hmm something is wrong with the ubuntu/memtest ones, it shouldn't be 0,0, I don't know why update-grub made it that way.06:36
Lokeybazhang: thx06:36
stdinxtknight: I think it's in canonicals repo06:36
Jordan_Uxtknight, You should probably execute it directly rather than through sh, otherwise dash will be used despite any #! line ( if it's a script )06:36
Scunizixtknight, player that is06:37
xtknightunstable, well make /dev/hda1 /dev/hda5 and make 0,0 to 0,406:37

noy_oh thank god06:42
dmsuperman_xtknight, if that means anything06:42
dmsuperman_xtknight, and nvidia-settings finally works!!!!06:42
amenadonoy_-> dont do that, you know you are supposed to paste that in pastebin06:42
xtknightdmsuperman_ :p06:42
noy_well thats the script that needs to start when the computer does :) and i wont paste again here06:43
tommmiedstbin is there any open games that would be comparable to like counter strike?06:43
dmsuperman_xtknight, I LOVE YOU06:43
dmsuperman_I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU06:43
tommmiedor age of empires06:43
xtknightlol06:43
amenadonoy_-> have you looked at /etc/network/if-up.d  directory yet?06:43
noy_not yet06:43
dmsuperman_xtknight, you are easily by far the most helpful person i've ever had the pleasure of talking to on any irc channel06:43
amenadonoy_-> please man interfaces okay?06:44
xtknightdmsuperman_, well that's good ;)06:44

RainMakesMeWettommmied: checkout wesnoth, it's not bad. freeciv is like civilzation.06:44
dmsuperman_xtknight, you were helping me and like 2 others at the same time, and never once had the "elitist" attitude so many others have06:44
dmsuperman_:D:D06:44
RainMakesMeWet*civilization06:44
dmsuperman_do you have a paypal?06:44
xtknightnoo06:44
tommmiedthanks06:44
xtknightdmsuperman_, dude you have no idea.  that's easy stuff06:44
dmsuperman_xtknight, i know it's easy, but the fact that you were patient and willing to walk me through everything06:45
dmsuperman_xtknight, most people either just give up if it doesn't work immediately06:45
dmsuperman_xtknight, and i do the same thing with xp, i know it's hard remotely troubleshooting :P06:45
xtknightdmsuperman_, ah well yes if it's spyware i wont do it :)06:45
dmsuperman_xtknight, but seriously, msg me your paypal :D06:45
americanhow do i know if i should download the x86 or x86_64 drivers?06:46
xtknightdmsuperman_, but one more person using ubuntu is better for me06:46
americani have a core 2 duo06:46
bazhanghttp://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=4467900&postcount=5 Lokey seems you need to install jpilot and then follow these instructions06:46
xtknightamerican, type "uname -a"06:46
dmsuperman_hehh, my usual response to spyware is "if spybot and adaware can't fix it, you're gettin a reinstall06:46
americanxtknight: thanks06:46
xtknightamerican, at the end i386=x86,  x86_64=amd64/x86_64.06:46
xtknightdmsuperman_, well i am surprised you had the patience.  most USERS give up06:47
chris062689Does anyone recomend ways to slim down my Kubuntu install for my Eee PC?06:47
xtknightdmsuperman_, which is equally frustrating06:47
americanxtknight:  I see 2.6.24-15-generic #1 SMP Tue Apr 8 00:33:51 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux06:47
LewenchI was wondering, if I already have a windows partition with windows XP can I load that from Ubuntu using VMware?06:47
xtknightamerican, yup i*86=x8606:47
americanah thanks06:47
dmsuperman_xtknight, yeah, i'm a hardcore xp user that got frustrated at the BSOD, so i decided to give ubuntu another try06:47
xtknightLewench, dangerously, yes06:47
dmsuperman_i LOVE ssh'ing from work, and apt-get is great too06:47
Lokeybazhang: you there06:48
dmsuperman_so i'm just really trying to understand everything and make it work06:48
Lewenchxtknight, why dangerously?06:48
DanielRM_Im  happy in Vista06:48
xtknightLewench, i probably shouldn't even be telling you yes.  it's a much better idea to make a new VM.  faster, and it won't destroy your local install.  drivers have to be reinstalled and all that, it's a huge mess06:48
bazhangLokey: yes?06:48
ScuniziLewench, there are how to's for that but it's not for the feint of heart.. there is a tool that will convert your current install to a VM so you can use it in a vm in ubuntu BUT you'll run into validation issues.06:48
DanielRM_Vista for me has never crashed06:48
helpfromuthen dmsuperman and xtknight  let's have a group hug hihihihiihii06:48
bazhang!ot06:48
ubotu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, #ubuntu+1 supports the development version of Ubuntu and #ubuntu-offtopic is for random chatter. Welcome!06:48
dmsuperman_xtknight, more than just fixing this, i was paying attention so i know how things work and i can fix it in the future06:48
xtknightdmsuperman_, did you get dual displays working then?  wasn't that your goal?06:48
DanielRM_and whenever I try and put ubuntu  on it breaks06:49
dmsuperman_DanielRM_: you must be using a different vista than the rest of the world06:49
DanielRM_lol06:49
DanielRM_Seriously06:49
dmsuperman_xtknight, i only enabled twinview because the other mode required restarting X, but yeah at the very least twinview works06:49
bazhang!vista | DanielRM_06:49
DanielRM_atm06:49
ubotuDanielRM_: vista is the new 'operating system' by the evil overlords from Redmond. For more information, see http://www.badvista.org and !windows06:49
xtknightLewench, allowing VMWARE direct access to the disk is a bad idea in general as well, especially if it crashes.  if a regular VM crashes, you're basically totally safe06:49
LewenchScunizi, what type of validation issues? I guess I should just start from scratch then huh?06:49
xtknightdmsuperman_, ah good06:49
DanielRM_Evil overlords?!06:49
DanielRM_lol!06:49
DanielRM_OMFG ROFL06:49
helpfromuwow this EEPC is very cheap and i wish they can add putty or console or shell or terminal so i can do manual way of setting ip or dhcp or do ping or traceroute06:50
dmsuperman_DanielRM_: yes, evil overlords. and vista blows, it's like ME 206:50
DanielRM_That is immature xD06:50
dmsuperman_it's getting skipped over06:50
dmsuperman_look at the dates06:50
dmsuperman_xp will be sold until 201006:50
DanielRM_lol06:50
yigaldoes anyone know about apt pinning and local repositories?06:50
bazhanghelpfromu: just install another distro on there and then you can06:50
dmsuperman_windows 7 will be released in...201006:50
DanielRM_I have a 64 bit copy ^^06:50
xtknightyigal, vaguely06:50
dmsuperman_vista is nonexistant06:50
boumagreetings, ive just installed 7.10 :)06:50
Jordan_U helpfromu You can get to a terminal on the EEPC, hell you can install full on Ubuntu on it ( compiz fusion and all )06:50
Lewenchxtknight, Ah ok. Well right now im dual booting on my laptop. If I setup VMware correctly, I would like to remote windows xp from my laptop, can I move that excess free space to this ubuntu partition?06:50
DanielRM_yigal: use aptitude, it might help06:50
ScuniziLewench, remember after installing Windows you have to "validate" it.. when you have one install on one partition and another in the vm the validation system see's two differnt hardware profiles from the same serial number and chokes .. maybe disableing the ability to update.06:50
Lokeybazhang:i dont understand how to install after the first part06:51
unstablextknight: ok, I got the furthest so far when I hit enter on ubuntu from grub I get, "42.424797 Kernel Panic Not Syncing VFS Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)06:51
helpfromubazhang: but i has 2gig disk space only i guess06:51
yigalxtknight: It's a little convoluted, I won't worry you with the details06:51
xtknightLewench, what do you mean by remote, do you mean run windows inside linux?06:51
dmsuperman_and i love how little i have to reboot06:51
unstableo nevermind, I see, it's root=/dev/hda1, it should be /dev/hda406:51
bazhanghelpfromu: you registered?06:51
dmsuperman_i reboot so little that every time i do i forget to fix my menu.lst06:51
unstableon my menu.lst06:51
helpfromubazhang: what do you mean registered?06:51
xtknightunstable, did you change all the 0,0s and hda1s.  in fact can you post menu.lst now?06:51
yigalunstable: you have to reboot 0.o06:51
unstableor /dev/hda5 rather06:51
dmsuperman_i've had menu.lst pointing to the wrong partition for like 3 weeks, and every time i just manually edit it and boot haha06:51
bazhanghelpfromu: registered on freenode06:51
boumaive got a nvidia 8400gs, and after a google i found the software sources and enabled all, then enabled the restricted driver, to get the closed source nvidia drivers.. but now my resolution max is too low06:51
StPatrickI just installed Compiz, and it says desktop effects could not be enabled. someone help me?06:52
helpfromuJordan_U: really??06:52
xtknightdmsuperman_, i think in menu.lst at the top there's "automagic" options so each kernel update it sets the right root path.06:52
helpfromubazhang: yes i registered my nick here in freenode06:52
Jordan_Uhelpfromu, Yup :)06:52
=== dmsuperman is now known as dmsuperman_irssi
Lewenchxtknight, Yes, basically I have a few programs from work that I need (wonderware, cisco VPN etc) if I can get those to work within VMware there is no need for me to even have windows on this laptop. Im tired of windows. Its bloated, slow, and looks ugly too =)06:52
yigalStPatrick: no sounds like your doing yourself a favor, stay away from compiz06:52
dmsuperman_xtknight, I can't, it has to be specific06:52
helpfromuJordan_U: do you have eepc too? how much is the disk space you got there?06:52
Lokeybazhang: i got it06:52
xtknightbouma, run "gksu nvidia-settings"06:52
ScuniziStPatrick, you need #ubuntu-effects06:52
Jordan_Uhelpfromu, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZzzhEs9XGuE06:52
StPatrickyigal,  Regardless, what's wrong with my vid card?06:52
dmsuperman_xtknight, because in my bios, and plugged in, my SATA hdds are backwards06:52
boumaonly 1280x1024, before going to the restricted driver it was at my lcd native 1680x105006:52
StPatrickyigal,  for that matter, what's wrong with compiz?06:52
StPatrick#ubuntu-effects06:53
Jordan_Uhelpfromu, I don't have one personally06:53
dmsuperman_so grub sees the drive as hd1, but ubuntu / windows see it as hd006:53
dmsuperman_so i just have to leave it haha06:53
xtknightLewench, yeah i use windows in vm all the time, no need for host windows unless for games06:53
boumaxtknight: ah, i was wondering why the nvidia config wasnt on any of the menus, ive seen it on other linuxes06:53
xtknightLewench, you can just nuke the windows partitions away then.  and then use gparted to expand your linux06:53
yigalStPatrick: nothing except I find that it's just slow compared to window managers I am comfortable with now, but you should enjoy if you want it06:53
xtknightLewench, or even just reformat the windows partitions as ext3, and place the VM on them.  less trouble.06:53
Jordan_ULewench, I think cisco VPN is supported by network-manager06:53
xtknightbouma, might be in applications->system->NVIDIA X Config06:53
StPatrickyigal,  What other options are there?06:54
boumaxtknight: i have no applications-> system06:54
decayWhat do you guys like better...wine or cedega?06:54
xtknightbouma, otherwise need to install nvidia-settings from repository.  and besides, the shortcut doesn't run it as root so it's better to use gksu nvidia-settings.  otherwise you can only change resolutions, you can't update your X config.06:54
MEtaLpREs_ok im going to sound like a total noob asking this but for some reason i cant figure this out,  how do you run the firefox 3 beta while having firefox 2 installed?  if i run the firefox command it runs 2 not 3 how do i run the command so it starts 3?06:54
LewenchJordan_U, Really? Sweet! I don't know what corporate will say when I tell them I removed windows XP from there laptop and installed linux :-p06:54
bazhangLokey: sudo apt-get install jpilot then sudo modprobe visor and add visor to the list in /etc/modules , then to sync open jpilot and enter usb in the preferences settings step #4 you can read and do yourself I think ;]06:54
boumaxtknight: the console command worked its running06:54
yigalStPatrick: well you can have transparency with a modded metacity, that's nice but I like a very minimal keyboard driven interface, so I'm not so normal06:54
boumaxtknight: but there is no menu item for it, which would have been nice06:54
xtknightbouma, application->System tools ..?06:55
xtknightshould be.06:55
xtknightyou should definitely have some system tools menu?06:55
xtknightmaybe not..06:55
boumaaccessories, games, graphics, internet, office, soundvideo, add-remove06:55
yigalStPatrick: I use Xmonad which has all sorts of window arrangements that at a button the windows move to arrange themselves, I just like it that way06:55
xtknightmaybe need to restart gnome or something.  shoulda beenn in there.06:55
xtknightmake a shortcut06:56
bazhanghelpfromu: many distros will go on there; eeexubuntu, full ubuntu, and others--some work right out of the box and some require some tweaking; you can visit their channel #eeepc for more info or the see the wiki at www.eeeuser.com06:56
Lewenchxtknight, is VMware free? Im seeing things like "purchse" and all that.06:56
xtknightgksu /usr/bin/nvidia-settings06:56
cocox_Hi there, how could i know which model is my mainboard? i know is intel but i need the specific model... i have tried looking in hardware information, system tab in system monitor, and dmesg | grep intel etc... how could i do?06:56
StPatrickyigal,  Heh I see. I love transparency, but meh., i actuall yuse compiz to organize.06:56
xtknightLewench, yes, the version you need, is.06:56
xtknightLewench, VMWare server&player06:56
boumaxtknight: the system menu is separate, but its not under preferences or administration, and ive rebooted06:56
xtknightcocox_, sudo lshw |less06:56
nickrudcocox_  sudo dmidecode lists the part number iirc06:56
xtknightbouma, how did yo install nvidia drivers06:56
yigalStPatrick: yes, for 1/2 a year I liked compiz and then I started to see how a tiling window manager is just better for my needs06:56
dmsupermanwow, seperate X windows is WAY better than whatever i had before06:56
xtknightheeh06:56
dmsupermanseparate workspaces is sweet06:57
yigalStPatrick: just play, what is your problem with compiz?06:57
xtknightyea06:57
Lewenchxtknight, Do you know the latest version?06:57
dmsupermanthat's exactly what i wanted06:57
dmsupermanxtknight, let me just restate that i LOVE you06:57
xtknightLewench, well latest version should be on their site06:57
dmsupermanxtknight, in a totally hetero way of course06:57
xtknight:p06:57
boumaxtknight: i went to the system->administration->software sources, enabled all then went to system->administration->restricted driver manager, and ticked the one option for the nvidia driver06:57
xtknightbouma, oh well.  like i say you can still make a shortcut.  it was there for me, at least, but i'm on Hardy06:58
helpfromuwow cool eepc06:58
boumaxtknight: isnt 7.10 hardy ?06:58
boumaxtknight: im using 7.1006:58
xtknightbouma, 7.10 is gutsy, 8.04 is hardy06:58
bazhang8.04 is06:58
boumaxtknight: right06:58
dmsuperman8.0406:58
xtknighthardy is still in beta, close to RC(Release Candidate)06:58
dmsupermanwhat's with ubuntu always being X.04 then X.1006:58
xtknightthe months06:59
dmsupermanor am i just crazy06:59
bazhangyear and month06:59
xtknightdmsuperman, every six months starting from whenever they did.06:59
dmsupermanhaha06:59
xtknight500bc06:59
xtknight:p06:59
dmsuperman"psh, screw descriptive version names and numbers"06:59
boumaxtknight: can i upgrade from a 8.04cd ( when it finally comes out final.. possibly different number) without reinstalling06:59
dmsuperman*takes another hit* "what should we call this one?" "CRAZY ASS PANDA!!!"07:00
Lokeybazhang: i dont under stand the add visor to the list in /etc/modules07:00
xtknightlol07:00
xtknighthaha07:00
bazhangbouma if you have a seperate home dir07:00
dmsupermanNew, Crazy ass panda Ubuntu 9.0407:00
buzzsawwould it be more advisable to install the desktop or server install.   I plan on using it to filter internet, running a small web server, small game server07:00
boumabazhang: do you mean a separate partion for home ?07:00
dmsupermanoh man, since switching to windows07:00
xtknightdoesn't the server have no gui?07:00
Scunizidmsuperman,  the names come in alphabetical order..07:00
xtknightbouma, yes you can07:01
dmsupermani feel kind of dumb for ever buying that second gig of ram07:01
DanielRM_Server edition07:01
MacBook0621-07Leapord07:01
dmsupermanScunizi, so do hurricanes, but they're still stupid names07:01
buzzsawcool :-)07:01
bazhangbuzzsaw: up to you you can install server and add desktop or install desktop and add lamp07:01
xtknightbouma, you can upgrade 7.10->8.04, or you can download 8.04 and then incrementally upgrade into the final version.  you dont need a separate home dir07:01
DanielRM_But when in the CLI initial of the server edition07:01
xtknightunless you're doing option#107:01
DanielRM_type:07:01
xtknightit's preferable, i guess?07:01

unstablextknight: I'm able to boot memtest, and able to boot windows XP, I can't boot ubuntu yet.07:02
DanielRM_Get VirtualBox07:02
xtknightLewench, indeed it is07:02
DanielRM_VirtualBox is free and requires barely any specs07:03
dmsupermanJordan_U: not workspaces, X screens07:03
dmsupermanDanielRM_: AMEN07:03
DanielRM_:D07:03
ScuniziLewench, xtknight it is free.. don't forget to locate the link at the top of the download page to get a serial number/key07:03
DanielRM_Its also cross-platform :)07:03
Jordan_Udmsuperman, AFIK you can't :(07:03
LewenchScunizi, Thanks!.07:03
=== Kwitschibo_ is now known as Kwitschibo
xtknightdmsuperman, cant do what?07:03
Jordan_Udmsuperman, Why do you have multiple X sessions?07:03
cocox_nickrud, xtknight such commands you gave me list a lot of hw information but it doesnt tells me my motherboard model... something like Intel 945 express chipset ... any ideas?07:03
ScuniziLewench, sure.. If you don't' already have it you'll also need to install build-essential07:04
Jordan_Uxtknight, "move" a window from one X session to another07:04
trollehhrm. I'm a little stumped. Cannot get any livecd to read from the cdrom after the boot menu. Just keeps giving me 'failed to enable atapi an'07:04
xtknightcocox_, sudo lshw should, its at the top under product07:04
dmsupermanJordan_U: I wanted to be able to maximize each window to a monitor, and twinview tricks it into using both monitors as a giant widescreen07:04
xtknightJordan_U, oh i think he's mislabeling it and he means screens07:04
MEtaLpREs_can someone tell me how to run firefox 3 while already having firefox 2 installed?  when i run the firefox command it starts 207:04
LewenchScunizi, Which would be?07:04
xtknightdmsuperman, yes07:04
dmsupermanJordan_U, so maximizing maximized to both07:04
bazhangtrolleh: you have it set in bios to look for cd first?07:04
xtknightdmsuperman, you can do that.  let me get you the cmd07:04
dmsuperman:D07:04
dmsupermanwell even better07:04
bazhangMEtaLpREs_: this is gutsy?07:05
MEtaLpREs_yes07:05
ScuniziLewench, sudo apt-get install build-essential.. the c compiler and related stuff07:05
Jordan_Uxtknight, I don't know much about X, what is a screen ( as opposed to a workspace ) ?07:05
nickrudcocox_ isn't it under base board ?07:05
trollehbazhang: yes. It reaches the livecd boot menu fine, just when it tries to boot ubuntu it stops and provides that error message07:05
xtknightdmsuperman, you need to enable twinview and have it not notify Xinerama.   ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/165.33.09/README/appendix-b.html    Option "NoTwinViewXineramaInfo" "true"07:05
LewenchScunizi, Ah ok07:05
xtknightunstable, what's the error tho when you boot ubuntu?07:05
trollehi've tried with noapic and acpi=off, makes no difference.07:05
ScuniziLewench, when going through the install it's pretty much ok to accept all the defaults.07:06
xtknightJordan_U, a screen is a "presentation" device, it's where windows are placed.  sometimes the driver says 2 monitors are one screen ,like dmsuperman  is doing, so he can maximize one window to one big screen07:06
cocox_nickrud, xtknight http://pastebin.com/m41bc93fc this is what i got07:06
xtknightJordan_U, a workspace is higher level, it's more of a gnome thing.  it's just like having two nautilus windows open basically07:06
xtknightJordan_U, and sometimes one monitor per one screen, so windows can not be migrated across both.  they are separate "presentations", and different desktops with the same /home directroy07:07
Scunizixtknight, I know xinerama isn't used in ubuntu now.. but is there a way to accomplish  the same thing for him07:07
dmsupermanxtknight, so the command you just gave me will make the maximize to individual monitors right?07:07
xtknighttwinview has a mode where it binds together two monitors into one screen, or two monitors into two screens07:07
unstablextknight: When I'm at grub, and I hit enter on ubuntu, it says "42.424797 Kernel Panic Not Syncing VFS Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)"07:07
xtknightdmsuperman, no, "true" will make the 2 monitors one big screen and maximize to both.  "false" maximizes to individual07:07
bazhangtrolleh: what about removing the quiet so you can see the complete error list? is this 64bit?07:07
unstablextknight: There seems to be a pointer to 0,0 still, I don't know where though.07:07
xtknightdmsuperman, this is not a command you need to put it in xorg.conf07:07
meoblast001hello... i have a Brother MFC 5440CN printer and when i plugged it in, ubuntu detected it, but it claims it s a text only printer and then it wont print jack........ i did some extremely long and dificult process with my other ubuntu machine and got it to work.. but i dont remember what i di... a little help?07:08
decay!cedega07:08
ubotucedega is a project based on WINE, aimed at running Windows games on Linux. For more info, see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/Cedega07:08
dmsupermanxtknight, but will false allow me to A: Maximize to a single monitor and B: drag between monitors?07:08
xtknightScunizi, yea twinview utilizies xinerama protocl, not xinerama extension.  twinview can be told not to use xinerama protocol, in which case both screens are on emonitor07:08
trollehbazhang: this is what comes up when quiet is removed, and this happens on both 32 and 64bit.07:08
nickrudcocox_ in lshw, I see the host bridge and pci bridge, I think that's where you'll find that chip info07:08
LewenchScunizi, Ok thanks for the heads up.07:08
xtknightcocox_, your motherboard is a Dell 0DT492.  nothing else to see07:08
Scunizixtknight, with drag capabilities between the two?07:08
xtknightScunizi, yea07:08
ScuniziLewench, np problem.07:09
snow_rufirefox in ubuntu works badly07:09
Scunizixtknight, is that also part of xrandr?07:09
snow_rueven the worst browser07:09
xtknightScunizi, twinview is proprietary, not xrandr07:09
bazhangtrolleh: this is a dual boot or only ubuntu; also have you tried the alternate cd07:09
Jordan_Usnow_ru, In what way?07:09
xtknightdmsuperman, "false" enables you to drag, yes.  so does "true". difference is, gnome doesn't know one monitor from the other when it is "true", because it sees only one big screen.  but it's like having a big monitor.  you can drag, right?...07:09
Scunizixtknight, twinview ... isn't that an nvidia protocol?07:09
xtknightScunizi, yeah ati doesn't have it.  i'm not sure what they use07:10
dmsupermanxtknight, i'm in twinview now, and can't drag between07:10
xtknightdmsuperman, you probably didn't restart x07:10
xtknightafter seting twinview07:10
xtknightunstable, i don't know either ;|07:10
dmsupermanxtknight, sorry, i'm in "seperate x screens" now07:10
xtknightunstable, all i can suggest is google, i'm sure that sounds derogatory ;P07:10
xtknightdmsuperman, separate X screens is like two PCs07:11
cocox_xtknight, weird... everything else inside is intel... graphics, wifi, sound07:11
dmsupermanshould i put it back in twinview and check the "enable xinerama" button?07:11
xtknighterrgh07:11
xtknightdmsuperman, "xinerama" disables desktop effects and it's really only useful for very niche circumstances.  use TwinView07:11
=== ufita_ is now known as ufita
trollehbazhang: this is just the livecd. Not even sure if it's ubuntu specific. I'm not looking to do an install.07:11
xtknightdmsuperman, in other words do not enable "xinerama".  but that xinerama you see here has nothing to do with the option i showed you07:12
dmsupermanalright, enable TwinView, then take that command and put it in my xorg.conf (using false for the value)07:12
xtknightdmsuperman, deep down inside twinview still uses some parts of Xinerama.07:12
xtknightdmsuperman, depending on what you want, yes.  "false"->default, two monitors, drag capability.  "true"->default, act as one monitor+drag capability07:12
bazhangtrolleh: you running windows then and just checking out linux?07:12
xtknightdmsuperman, obviously need to put it in right spot in xorg.conf07:12
dmsupermanxtknight, how can both false and true be default :P07:13
trollehbazhang: yup.07:13
unstablextknight: My menu.list, root=/dev/hda5 right?07:13
xtknightdmsuperman, false is default07:13
xtknightunstable, yea07:13
bazhangtrolleh: best to try it via wubi then07:13
bazhang!wubi | trolleh07:13
ubotutrolleh: wubi is Wubi advice here: http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=234  and  http://wubi-installer.org  [file wubi bugs here:  https://launchpad.net/wubi/+filebug ] (it is included in hardy 8.04 beta CD and will be in the final release)07:13
xtknightDefault: false (TwinView Xinerama information is provided).07:13
cocox_nickrud, i find just intel corporation but nothing else07:13
unstablextknight: in chroot, I can't do "fdisk -l", it says "cannot open /proc/partitions07:14
unstable"07:14
xtknightunstable, you need to exit it07:14
xtknight /proc is something on the active system, and you're chrooting into a dead system07:14
bazhangtrolleh: with wubi, if you dont like ubuntu then you can remove it via the add/remove in windows07:14
xtknightthose floodbots cause more noise than they prevent07:14
trollehbazhang: thanks. I've set wubi up on another pc, just found the issue with the cdrom bizarre.07:15
bazhangtrolleh: I would suggest trying some other distro livecd's to make sure it is linux and not a hardware issue07:15
dmsupermanxtknight, which section does this command go in?07:15
xtknightdmsuperman, it says on the link They may be specified either in the Screen or Device sections of the X config file.07:16
xtknightisn't dual monitor on fglrx called MergedFB?07:19
nuccoanybody has a clue why rhythmbox grinds my HDD, and then freezes the system when I'm running on battery?07:20
MEtaLpREs_can someone tell me how to run firefox 3 while already having firefox 2 installed?  when i run the firefox command it starts 207:20
dmsupermanwoot :D07:20
StarnestommyMEtaLpREs_: try firefox-3.007:20
xtknightMEtaLpREs_, use the shortcuts instead.07:20
dmsupermandual monitor, seperate panels, maximize to a single monitor, and drag between!07:20
xtknightcommand line for firefox is unreliable due to several reasons07:20
xtknightdmsuperman, :p07:20
MEtaLpREs_what shortcuts?07:20
xtknightdmsuperman, be glad you have nvidia07:20
dmsupermanwhat're the actual names of the bars at the top and bottom of the screen?07:20
xtknightMEtaLpREs_, should have firefox and firefox gran paradiso..07:21
dmsupermanxtknight, i wouldn't do it any other way, ati is terrible :P07:21
xtknightdmsuperman, panels07:21
MEtaLpREs_firefox 3 didnt install its just a folder that extract from the tar07:21
dmsupermanxtknight, do the top and bottom ones have different names?07:21
MEtaLpREs_so theres no shortcuts07:21
xtknightoh brother07:21
xtknightdmsuperman, bottom taskbar, top is main panel i think07:21
snow_ruJordan_U, in the way that it stops responding many times and suddently quit07:21
xtknightMEtaLpREs_, gutsy or hardy?07:21
dmsupermangotchya :D07:21
MEtaLpREs_gutsy07:21
ChaosParserdmsuperman: gnome-panel07:22
xtknightMEtaLpREs_, well can't really run firefox 3 from firefox.com concurrently with firefox2 in gutsy.07:22
xtknightit's not too easy07:22
xtknighti messed with it never did get it the way i wanted07:22
dmsupermanEPIC07:22
dmsupermani think i've got near everything perfect07:22
MEtaLpREs_xtknight: i tried installing it from synaptic but that was alpha 8, not beta 507:22
xtknightMEtaLpREs_,  because firefox tries to detect itself and you get profile conflicts, etc.  much easier to use firefox-granparadiso in the repositories, even if earlier rev of FF307:23
dmsupermanonly thing i need now to have a completely operational desktop pc07:23
unstablextknight: Is there a way to re-generate my /etc/fstab? Maybe it's becuase I got rid of the UUIDs and put /dev/hdas07:23
xtknightMEtaLpREs_, hardy has ff beta 5 if you want to upgrade07:23
dmsupermanwell, just a few more things :P07:23
wabiDoverwrite your files in the directory with the ff3b5 ones, it takes 10 seconds07:23
xtknightMEtaLpREs_, it also has FF207:23
xtknightwabiD, not as easy as it sounds07:23
xtknightwabiD, struggled for hours in #mozilla with problems, the two dont even use the same binaries07:23
dmsupermana launchy/quicksilver alternative. Not just for apps, so the run dialog doesn't work. is there a good file indexer with fuzzy name searching and popup dialog?07:23
knightwisequestion , is it possible to install ipcop on a ubuntu server ?07:24
MEtaLpREs_wabiD: i dont want to overwrite 2, i want to be able to still use 2 until 3 goes final, i just wanted to try out 307:24
bazhangapt-cache search ;]07:24
LewenchScunizi, Im downlnoad the Vmserver. Was I supposed to download the VMworkstation?07:24
xtknightunstable, i dont think this is the problem but i got your old uuids i think07:24
wabiDyea install 307:24
knightwisei would like to setup a joint server / firewall combo07:24
xtknightLewench, workstation is a buyable product07:24
ChaosParserdmsuperman: gnome-do07:24
wabiDoverwrite it with minefield from burning edge07:24
ScuniziLewench, nope you got it right07:24
wabiDthen you still have both07:24
dmsupermanlike in windows with launchy i hit ctrl + space and typed "me an live is" and it knew i meant "Metallica - And Justice For All - To Live is To Die"07:24
j3ganyone know a reason or a fix for slow RDP (rdesktop) to a vista ultimate computer? this computer was running XP before and rdesktop was fast as hell.. now that it has been upgraded to vista, RDP seems to be slower than vnc... is there anything on the vista "rdp server" that is unsupported by rdesktop?07:24
dmsupermanChaosParser, will check that out :D07:24
wabiDand its not outdated like the repository07:24
LewenchAh ok thanks Scunizi xtknight07:24
dmsupermannot in repo :'(07:25
xtknightunstable,07:25
xtknighthttp://rafb.net/p/pQrSzj76.html07:25
ChaosParserdmsuperman: They completely ripped off quicksilver, you'll love it.07:25
dmsupermanhaha awesome07:25
xtknightunstable, also get uuids by typing "sudo blkid"07:25
dmsupermannever used quicksilver, only launchy, but launchy was a more functional quicksilver i've heard07:25
xtknightLewench, virtualbox is cool too, a little more difficult to setup tho i think07:25
meoblast001can someone install http://solutions.brother.com/Library/sol/printer/linux/rpmfiles/cups_wrapper/cupswrapperMFC5440CN-1.0.2-3.i386.deb and tell me why the hell it wont install07:25
ChaosParserdmsuperman: http://do.davebsd.com/  gnome-do learns.07:25
dmsupermanxtknight, nah, i installed it earlier07:25
dmsupermanxtknight, it's as simple as the windows "Virtual PC" program07:26
chris062689Anyone got any tips / tricks on slimming down a Ubuntu install?07:26
dmsuperman_really_ simple to setup virtualbox07:26
xtknightdmsuperman, last time i tried it i had to add users to group and it wasnt really documented07:26
bazhangchris062689: how slim we talking?07:26
xtknightdmsuperman, might be difficult for first timers i donno07:26
meoblast001please07:26
dmsupermanxtknight, i don't know about that, i haven't actually installed xp to my vm yet but it was insanely easy to setup initially, apt-get did most of it07:26
chris062689Like..07:26
chris062689Around 1GB / 2 GB?07:27
chris062689I need it to fit on my Eee.07:27
meoblast001im losing my patients07:27
ChaosParser chris062689 There are eeepc specific versions.07:27
xtknightwell they're losing you too07:27
bazhangchris062689: oh the eeepc; I tried eeexubuntu on there07:27
Scunizi!patients | meoblast00107:27
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about patients - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi07:27
dmsupermanmeoblast001, and your ability to spell!07:27
ChaosParserchris062689: http://www.eeebuntu.org/07:28
chris062689Well I was thinking Eeexubuntu but it really just has GNOME apps..07:28
Daisuke_Idodmsuperman, no, you missed the point, he's a doctor about to face a ton of malpractice lawsuits!07:28
bazhangchris062689: there are also non-ubuntu options that work ootb07:28
chris062689Is Eeeubuntu updated regullarly?07:28
chris062689right I was looking at those too07:28
chris062689First time I've heard of Eeebuntu though, I heard of the scriptpacks07:29
lucyhai..hai07:29
ChaosParserchris062689: I'd suggest you go look at the faq on the site.  there;s an iso there.  http://www.eeebuntu.org/07:29
dmsupermanDaisuke_Ido, HARDY HAR HAR07:29
MEtaLpREs_meh, i guess i'll just wait on FF3 then, i will install 8.04 in 12 days then i will try it out,  i dont want to deal with a bunch of BS over this when hardy is so close to release anyway07:29
dmsuperman!!!HARDY!!!07:29
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about hardy!!! - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi07:29
dmsupermanhaha07:29
MEtaLpREs_thanks anyway for the help07:29
xtknightlol07:29
lucyhello07:29
xtknightMEtaLpREs_, or you can install beta now or try livecd now07:29
meoblast001why does it end at (Reading database ... ?????????07:29
xtknightif you wish07:30
xtknightmeoblast001, you probably just need to waita long long time07:30
LewenchYou all think that hardy will cause conflicts with gutsy?07:30
Lewenchwhen you up grade?07:30
meoblast001its 2:30 in the morning07:30
xtknightdont know07:30
bazhangproblem with eeexubuntu is that it just does not look that good and a bit of tweaking is necessary chris06268907:30
chris062689right07:30
jrgpwhat's up with xmms not existing in hardy?07:30
chris062689Ive had Eeexubuntu on it for a while07:30
chris062689But GNOME apps bloat it anyway..07:30
xtknightjrgp,  it's weird isnt it.  replaced by audacious i guess.07:30
MEtaLpREs_nah, i dont like running beta os's even if it is basicly the final version,  everytime i do that i end up with lots of system problems07:30
chris062689So I might as well go for the whole GNOME desktop07:30
meoblast001i could illegally pirate windows, install it, print off everything i need, and delete it in the time its taking me to set up a simple print server07:31
ScuniziLewench, shouldn't but it will mess with vmware server if there's a new  kernel.. pretty easy to remedy though.07:31
meoblast001here goes my stress07:31
LewenchScunizi, Yeah. Well atleast I can backup the vm file and load it on another vmware correct?07:31
lucy#aaa07:31
bazhangLewench: it will replace it so no conflict ;]07:32
dmsupermanwhere is xbindkeysrc at?07:32
CorbinFoxcan I get help installing Madwifi to get my Atheros card working? i can't seem to get it to work07:32
ScuniziLewench, sure.. a new kernel doesn't distroy things you just need to run the setup again to recompile.. I've been doing it for 2 years since Dapper 6.0607:32
bazhangCorbinFox: which atheros? the 5006 or the 5007?07:32
xtknightdmsuperman, sometimes you need to create configuration files.  usually in ~/, or your /home/user/ dir.  .xbindkeyssrc probably07:33
CorbinFoxbazhang: 5006EG07:33
unstablextknight: I think I'll just reformat with Ubuntu, I'll delete all the partitions except windows and start over. Will I have to re-install grub? or no?07:33
Diurpaneusubuntu romania?07:33
xtknightdmsuperman, note the dot in front of the file name07:33
xtknightunstable, i doubt youll have to reinstall grub, if you install ubuntu AFTER windows07:33
bazhangCorbinFox: what is the busID on that? ubuntu sometimes misses the 5007 and calls it the 500607:33

bazhangDiurpaneus: any reason not to format as ext3? if it is not shared--you never need to share it with a windows box?08:06
dubbythats better then the cedega version then08:06
StPatrickdubby,  huh?08:06
CorbinFoxStPatrick: ah, a .deb...hmm, well, i know for certain that under wine it works so try the windows install file exe and try that in wine, i dont know anything about the .deb part08:06
dubby^08:06
StPatrickCorbinFox,  Ok, I'll do that, thanks08:06
StPatrickCorbinFox,  How do i remove the install i have, though?08:06
jumentoushey: i'm trying to compile a program and run it elsewhere, unfortunately the remote machine has an older glibc than me which seems to come from my gcc -v is 4.1.3 vs there 4.1.2. Is there a way to specify an old glibc version or can i specify an old gcc to apt as 4.1.3 is the current 4.1? note i can't change the remote.08:07
dubbygdebi rm eve ?08:07
dubbylol idk08:07
CorbinFoxStPatrick: i think you can either undo it from Synaptic or maybe if you open the .deb again it gives you that option (i think it may only give you reinstall tho).08:07
Diurpaneusi need this HDD to save my old personal files from the PC, and i need to be ntfs file sistem08:07
bazhangDiurpaneus: so it is shared then?08:07
CorbinFoxStPatrick: either way, if you cant uninstall you should be able to install to wine and it wont matter if the .deb version is installed.  entirely different beast, wine is.08:07
StPatrickCorbinFox,  I don't like clutter.08:08
StPatrickcorbin removing it :)08:09
StPatrickCorbinFox,  *08:09
