ubotureiserfs is a journalling file system, which outperforms many others on I/O operations, but has drawbacks (such as increasing likelihood of data loss, and introducing latency unsuitable for gaming or real-time audio).

axelpaxelVoidedCheck: Actually, it's no joke :) I'm dead serious, and used to XP.. just laugh, but feel free to help02:24
VoidedCheckaxelpaxel, you'd have to look on your PSU for a sticker or logo02:24
FoxyYes, inside of linux, I see the possibility of dual boot but I dont want to have to reset everytime I want to acces windows02:24
Swishaxelpaxel, to check PSU you must open your case02:24
VoidedCheckPSU info isn't passed to the computer02:24

(i have already done fsck)?03:54
nickrudLempfac1 don't worry about breaking your system ;) Keep your home backed up, and break to learn, it's a classic method03:54
Jack_Sparrowsimtower, sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg or sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg (to just set res) If you get locked out Select vesa as your video card and 1024 max res.  Use tab or enter to accept all other defaults03:54

tiocstitar tends to be a better choice for backups (or dump)04:08
latituragsagar <renebrask> dd copies every block on the harddisk. It knows nothing about the fs on it. So you get an exact copy of the partition including the data in free space04:08

Monobicrackhead, rtfm04:10
sjovancrackhead: but why can't you telnet? i'm shure you got the adress wrong. all routers that i know of have telnet suport04:11
IdleOneMonobi: rtfm is not an acceptable answer in here. if you wish to help then help but dont be rude about it04:11
VoidedCheckread the friendly manual?04:11
crackheadMonobi: right now i am ssh'd into remote machine. probably through port 20. or 22. whatever default. i can access command console on remote. i can run x11vnc which sets up stuff on the remote. however when i use xvncviewer on the local, i can't get it to connect to the remote.. probably because a differnet port needs to bre open.. and i forgot to open it..04:11
MonobiVoidedCheck, ding04:11
sjovancapiCrimm: port 21 in fact04:11
Monobicrackhead, in that case, I have no clue04:11
MonobiI thought you needed help setting it up04:12
crackheadsjovan: see my situation there..04:12
mechdaveAnyone know of any tutorials that I can follow for hot key enabling?04:12
sjovancrackhead: port 21 in fact, and as i have said many times. telnet the router and open the port.04:12
sjovancrackhead: if you can't get to the router with telnet, then you got the wrong adress04:13
mechdaveon travelmate 25004:13
crackheadsjovan: yeah i tried. maybe the router closd off for a few minutes or something automaticall? i dont kno why it would do that, but maybe it did.. if i can't get into router, then you think there is a way to just forward one program thread, through putty? why would i use putty on a ubuntu machine? isnt that only windows?04:13
sjovancrackhead: that i'm pritty shure of04:13
tiocstitheres a unix port of putty, dont know what state its in though04:13

sjovancrackhead: i was up in the same situation as you some time ago. then i was on a windows box. that's the reason i talked about putty04:14
latituragsagar whats that04:14
sjovancrackhead: but any ways... if you got some other ports open, why don't you just change the port on the vnc server then?04:14
sjovanproblem solved...04:14
ragsagarthat is the command to put the files in a zip archive04:15

sjovancrackhead: if you got an idee what ports that are open on your router and not in use.... run lynx, go to the site www.canyouseeme.org and check if the port is open. if it is, then change the port to that port on vlc server04:18
Lynetlatitu: fsck.ext3?04:18

sjovancrackhead: what trick?04:32
crackheadsjovan: i got into the router admin page with lynx. and i navigated to the right section, and i made the right change. it's just when i clicked apply, it loads a url that says merely continue.. and it didnt seem to work, that one page.. but that' snot javascript.. so i dont know why it wouldnt .. i just want to try another advanced terminal based internet browser, if you know of one04:33

sjovancrackhead: well... as i told you before. all the terminal browser got issues with java as far as i know. google, but i doubt that you will finde one that works. telnet is still the way to go, or as another person talked about. tunneling the port of vnc server trough ssh. don't know how to do that btw... google ssh tunneling. or as i said... use one of the open ports that you talked about. why do you need vnc anyways?04:35

LainIwakuraIced_Eagle: so changes are still being made?04:36
Iced_EagleNo hurry, at least on my end :)04:36
sjovandevin_: because the suport on kubuntu isn't that good and that kde looks like crap in general04:36
ragsagardevin_, iam a kde user! :P04:36
Iced_Eaglenot exactly sure, but if it's labeled as an RC, still treat it as one :)04:37
crackheadsjovan: check this out.. http://www.karlrunge.com/x11vnc/   in rx11vnc.pl.. apparently he wrote something to try that? do you understand how to do it??04:37
devin_Dr_willis which do you prefer?04:37
ragsagarsjovan, kde looks like crap :o04:37
Dr_willisdevin_,  depends on what machine i am on, and what tasks i am doing. I have jwm set up on my laptop  how i like it.04:37
Dr_willisdevin_,  install the other desktops, window managers, and try them out. Use what you like.04:37
Iced_Eaglecan anyone correct me, but is it correct in saying that if you start with an Ubuntu beta version and just keep updating it, by the time it releases it becomes 100% identical to the final release?04:38
Iced_Eaglejust want to get my facts straight :)04:38
Dr_willisIced_Eagle,  thats how its supposed to work04:38
Iced_Eaglewhen Hardy is released I'm going to make my laptop dual-boot04:38
devin_well i went from gnome to kde but i'm thinking i made a bad move idk which i like more.04:38
crackheadsjovan: you see?04:38
Dr_willisdevin_,  use one for a week, then switch for a week. then try some others for a week.04:38

Dr_willisdevin_,  the gdm/kdm/whatever login screen has a menu to let you pick what windowmanager/desktop to use.04:42
sjovanSeventeen: applications ---> accessories ---> terminal04:42
biabiawhen hardy is released..can the upgrade be selected in Synaptic Package Manager or does it have to be burned04:42
Dr_willisdevin_,  install kubuntu-desktop, and ubuntu-desktop, then on the login screen pick kde or gnome to boot to what one you want to use that time04:43
sjovanbiabia: when it's ready you can just do: system ---> admin ---> update manager04:43

VoidedCheckbullgard4, at this point I couldn't care less06:30
dmsupermanVoidedCheck, you've been banned from +1 and -offtopic, you're well on your way to this channel too06:30
fairyeneriedok, i'm now able to install a simple xserver core06:30
tmongerwhat the fuck06:30
fairyeneriedbut i need a small lightweight praphic environment to work in06:30
fairyeneriedany idea?06:31
Dr_willisfairyeneried,  You have allready installed fluxbox.. you have one.06:31
kittykittyfluxbox was tiny06:31
* kittykitty echo's06:31
FastZfairyeneried: flux is nice06:31
FastZxfce is nice too06:31
VoidedCheckdmsuperman, why?06:31
fairyeneriedi was installing flux but it does not work06:31
fairyeneriedxfce is the one used in xubuntu, it isn't?06:32
Dr_willisfairyeneried,  'define does not work' - it gives you a very minimal desktop.. thats all it does06:32
kittykittyflux doesn't "appear" to work till you actually add something to it, i think you get like one window with the default06:32
VoidedChecka real reason please, not this "think of the children!" crap06:32
FastZfairyeneried: yup, that's the one06:32
fairyeneriedDr_willis i mean it does not start06:32
Dr_willisfairyeneried,  i though you said 'startx' worked earlier for you.06:32
fairyeneriedtes, but startfluxbox does not work06:32
MelbourneBlokeKitty Kitty .. Have you tried something like fire starter - http://www.fs-security.com/06:32
Dr_willisfairyeneried,  that command HAS to be ran from the .xinitrc - as i said a long time ago.. several times.. :)06:32
MelbourneBlokeThat may help you create some rules06:33
VoidedCheckfirestarter is a bit complicated to set up06:33
fairyeneriedhehe, forgive this fool girl :">06:33
dmsupermanVoidedCheck, how about that I want to join this community to give and recieve help, not listen to you make an ass of yourself06:33
fairyeneried... then how can i add things to fluxbox?06:33
Dr_willisfairyeneried,  make a .xinitrc file with the 2 commands..  xterm &    startfluxbox     *on 2 lines* then try startx again06:33
Dr_willisfairyeneried,  you may want to install xterm first. 'sudo apt-get install xterm'06:34
kittykittyno i havn't MelbourneBloke, but can you look at the rule i tried to setup and tell me if it should work, cause it doesn't appear to be06:34
fairyeneriedwhere i must place this file?06:34
VoidedCheckdmsuperman, I've given help here if only a bit, so stick it06:34
FastZfairyeneried: you're a girl?  thank goodness, the IRC handle had me kind of scared for a minute06:34
Dr_willisfairyeneried,  like all . files they go in the users home dir.06:34
Dr_willisfairyeneried,  with the other .whatever files. :)06:34
fairyeneried.whatever, hehehe06:34
fairyeneriedok ;)06:34
VoidedCheckI even helped someone realize that they can't access their PSU info from BIOS06:35
Dr_willisdont expect fluxbox to 'do' a whole lot in any case. :) it has a little panel, and some menus. and thats it.06:35
VoidedCheckas silly as that sounds06:35
Dr_willisVoidedCheck,  i saw someone on irc DEmAND we tell him his own phone #.. since he was on dialup.. we should know what it is!06:35
Dr_willisVoidedCheck,  :)06:36
VoidedCheckit's 555-XXXX!06:36
MelbourneBlokeSure .. whats the rule?06:36
jdrakeIs there a real small ubuntu image I can use to fix a problem? I need something as small as possible (512kbps connection), and the alternate, desktop and server images are all too big.06:36
VoidedChecklike debian business cards?06:37
VoidedCheckI don't think so, sorry06:37
Dr_willisjdrake,  check out 'dsl' or puppylinux for uber-small live cd's   they are not ubuntu specific however06:37
dmsupermanjdrake, you could use the linux recovery cd...not sure the website though06:37
dmsupermanjdrake, or that. mine also wasn't ubuntu specific06:37
MelbourneBlokewhy dont you search using google image search?06:37
VoidedCheckimage search?06:37
jdrakeDon't feed the trolls06:38
FastZjdrake: are you talking about a liveCD?  use Knoppix or something like that06:38
eth01topic, now.06:38
eth01bloody read it.06:38
VoidedCheckthe one that points me at the netherlands?06:38
jdrakeFastZ: I just need a shell with an editor and the ability to mount regular ext3 :-)06:38
Dr_willisjdrake,  dsl = 50mb.  if thers any smaller - i dont know of them06:39
evilbugis a firewall necessary for ubuntu?06:39
Dr_willisevilbug,  depends on what you are doing.. most likely. no06:39
VoidedCheckubuntu closes ports by default06:39
Starnestommyevilbug: not usually, but iptables/netfilter is installed by default06:39
evilbugi see,thanks!06:40
Starnestommyports automatically open when something starts that requests to use that port06:40
jdrakeDr_willis: looks good06:40
VoidedCheckiptables is in the kernel, no?06:40
zvacetVoidedCheck but if he want to run server,samba,or something klike that?06:40
StarnestommyVoidedCheck: it is06:40
StarnestommyVoidedCheck: iptables is in the kernel06:40
Dr_willisiptables is the tool used to confiure the firewalling features of the kernel. yes.06:40
mikereI use a simple iptables script on my dev web servers to shut down all ports to the outside except those I really want available - and those I limit to just hte IP's that really need access to them.06:41
kittykittyok... so i can verify that the packets are making it to my firewall but arn't getting passed through, so anyone have suggestions?06:41
Starnestommybut you can compile a kernel without it or set the system to not load its modules06:41
ubotuUbuntu, 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).06:41
tiocstieh, which distro doesnt have firewall capabilities built in?06:41
tiocstioops nevermind misread06:42
VoidedCheckStarnestommy, that's a bit higher level than the vast majority of ubuntu users06:42
StarnestommyVoidedCheck: there are GUIs for it and there is also the CLI 'iptables' program06:43
ArtficialSynapseHow's everybody doin??06:43
VoidedCheckStarnestommy, that's still a bit high-level for msot06:46
kristopheri know in the bash prompt i execute commands like gimp and then a semi colon to wait and excute another command afterwards06:47
kristopherhow do i do that in a bash script..06:47
VoidedCheckmost people when shown a GUI still don't know wtf a firewall (especially not a real firewall, but an ip or packet filter) is supposed todo06:47
zvacetIn hardy will be easier to work with firewall  http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/hardy/beta06:47
kristopherso that it executes perl ./blah.pl and then after thats done executes blah2.pl06:47
Dr_williskristopher,  put a command on each line..  or do it with simicolens same as the shell.06:48
VoidedCheckI'm usi8ng hardy right now, and I've never seen anything like a firewall interface06:48
VoidedCheckexcept telneting into my router06:48
Dr_williskristopher,  assuming your commands dont background, it shoulkd work the same way06:48
kristopherits not waiting until the perl script finishes06:48
Boohbahkristopher: blah.pl && blah2.pl06:49
Cpudan80kristopher: They work the same way06:49
zvacetVoidedCheck :Ubuntu 8.04 Beta includes ufw (Uncomplicated Firewall), a new host-based firewall application configurable from the command line which is designed to make administering a firewall easier for end users while not getting in the way of network administrators.06:49
Cpudan80kristopher: thing1.pl; thing2.pl would also work06:49
Cpudan80Boohbah: no06:49
Dr_willisunless thing1.pl some how spawns itself to the background and exists..06:49
Cpudan80Boohbah: that only executes blah2.pl if blah.pl exits with a successful status code06:49
VoidedCheckzvacet, that's nice, especially after installing hardy beta and now rc that I've never seen any config for getting my apps to communicate.06:50
vido22hi can i ask here about something about mysql06:50
VoidedCheckthey just do.06:50
VoidedCheckthen again, it was the same in gutsy and feisty.06:50

MelbourneBlokedoes the server also lose its connection every ten minutes?07:14
kevcox_Good question....I'll run back and kick off a continuous ping and see what happens07:15
kevcox_I was looking for a log file to see what might be happeing.07:15
MelbourneBlokeKevox: ok thats a good idea ... something else you may want to try is plugging  your laptop directly into your router07:16
MelbourneBlokethat way you can tell if its something within the network or if it is your ethernet adaptor giving you problems07:16
VoidedCheckrouter != modem07:17
kevcox_Okay, I'm using Shorewall with two NICS in the server so i assume a crossover cable is needed for this.07:17
kevcox_That was a question... :)07:17
MelbourneBlokedepends if your NICs are auto negotiate07:17

chronographerHello all. I still have an issue with my new 226bw samsung with nvidia drivers. The issue is that there is an intermittened 'flash' where the screen drops to black and pops back up witha mesage from the monitor saying 'warning, non optimum settings, settings should be 1680x1050 60 hz' which is waht I have got it set to. I have discovered one interesting line in my Xorg.0.log " see here for output. http://pastebin.com/m33daa89907:31

nargah, exactly what I wanted. Thanks.07:33
boumais the closed nvidia driver barred in 8.04beta ?07:33
nargbut most beats them both ;)07:33
SnakeyeSBy dual-booting, would nothing from Windows be used when Ubuntu is running, thus having the advantage of using an OS that requires far less resources (memory/cpu) than Windows XP?  I would obviously be sacrificing the hard drive space used by Windows but, since this laptop will be used primarily for surfing, the need for disk space is not a concern (I'll still have several gigs remaining).  Am I missing any considerations?07:33
VoidedCheckbut none trumps them all07:33
chronographerthats right snakeyes07:34
SnakeyeSso nothing from windows is used?07:34
chronographerit is completely separate, apart from being on the same hard drive.07:34

dude_i installed windows AFTER ubuntu on my hard drive, and now it messed up the MBR.  It wont display ubuntu as a bootable option.  Can someone please help?  I was given these instructions but I have trouble following them because It didn't work the first time I tried it. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows.  Maybe I'm doing something wrong, currently I'm using ubuntu live cd, can someone please 08:09
arvind_khadrikubist: purge X ... maybe that should help08:09

VoidedCheckI know there's a way to use the livecd to install grub to your mbr but I forgot the details08:09
jeffimperialSome help, pls. Deluge won't launch until after I try three times. I'm on an Ubuntu-Gnome machine.08:09
arvind_khadridude_: boot into the live cd08:09
dude_arind_khadri, I currently am using the live cd ;)08:10
monkeybritchesdude_: What do you mean by messed up the MBR?08:10
VoidedCheckzero, upgrades just suck, there's plenty of cruft and bloat08:10
VoidedCheckfresh installs are pretty and clean08:10
VoidedCheckjust backup first08:10
zeroVoidedCheck, thats been my experience as well, there isnt anythingon this machine that isnt backed up anyway08:10
dude_monkeybritches, well, XP hogged it and now it won't show ubuntu as a bootable option.  It's already in there as a partition, but it wont show it as a bootable option.08:10

dude_i tried this but I think I did it wrong08:11
kubistarvind_khadri: as i installed the system the monitor detected and set by default was plug and play... after changing it to generic 1280x800 lcd i was offered the option to set the resolution to 1280x800, after restart the highest option is 1024x768... could it be that my problem is display related?08:11
VoidedCheckI hate windows attempt to take over your boot loading options08:11

ubotuLectrick: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, #ubuntu+1 supports the development version of Ubuntu and #ubuntu-offtopic is for random chatter. Welcome!08:34

Dr_willisyou can boot a live cd, then chroot into the installed system, and use the passwd USERNAME command to set a new password. is one way. rescue mode may let you do it also09:30
heikkushmm. it tries to boot from the cd but then just says the cd is unbootable :E i tweaked the bios so that it only boots from the cd-rom and not at all from the hard drive09:30

DOOM_NXslacker, yes but... i don't think it will ever be able to connect because windows is a guest os in vbox... using NAT...09:41
B3NZ1N0this cahn sucks09:42
Dr_willisB3NZ1N0,   the various irc clients for linux, can do about anytying that mIRC can do.. and many things mIRC cant do. - irc clients connect to irc servers, and join channels so you can chat. :)09:42
SingAlongbazhang: yeah will get back09:42
bazhangB3NZ1N0: please read the /topic09:42
DOOM_NXslacker, how do i unlog? :P09:42
arvind_khadriB3NZ1N0: building them is no chance for users ..its a developer thing ...so why dont you get a device.../dev/ points to the devices you have09:42
B3NZ1N0I dont use linux09:42
slackerDOOM_NX: ctrl+d09:42
Dr_willisB3NZ1N0,   Then why are you hanging in a Linux related channel?09:42
slackerDOOM_NX: from your windows, can you ping the linux box?09:42
bazhangB3NZ1N0: please exit and go to ##windows thanks09:42
DOOM_NXslacker, no because i'm using NAT09:43
slackerDOOM_NX: so why are you even trying to get ssh working for it?09:43
DOOM_NXi was just trying to see how putty works09:43
DOOM_NXi didn't expect it to connect09:43
slackerputty doesn't do much without a server to connect to09:44
DOOM_NXi know... just the settings09:44
DOOM_NXso slacker if i import the key to another PC09:44
DOOM_NXusing putty09:44
DOOM_NXand try to connect, will it connect?09:44
heikkuswow im gonna try this flubuntu thingy ->09:44
rootHey all09:44
zvacetroot ask09:45
thoreauputicroot: Using IRC as root is a silly idea, in case you didn't know :)09:45
DOOM_NXslacker, i sued "vncviewer localhost:1" and got this: http://img444.imageshack.us/img444/5290/screenshotvncdoomsxdeskyk0.png09:45
explorer28.04 looks just like 7.10 :( :((09:45
rootIm on root09:46
rootuser on Ubuntu09:46
thoreauputicroot: why?09:46
rootForgot to chang09:46
Dr_williswe can tell that from your nick. :)09:46
rootI run my own web server09:46
thoreauputicroot: your /whois shows "root"09:46
=== root is now known as Habbotom
Dr_williswe are safer now? :)09:47
=== master_o1_master is now known as master_of_master
thoreauputicHabbotom: changing your nick doesn't change the fact that you are using IRC as root :)09:47
Habbotomthoreauputic: Whats wrong with using it09:47
slackerDOOM_NX: putty can do pub key authentication, if you have the settings right. it works for me09:48
thoreauputicHabbotom: in some channels you would be kicked :) It's not a secure thing to do09:48
DOOM_NXslacker, i guess so, but see what VNC shows...09:48
thoreauputicHabbotom: make a user accout and do your on line stuff with that09:48
newbieucan someone help me , i can record sound on ubuntu09:48
slackerso, nobody around who used videotrans before?09:49
slackerDOOM_NX: vnc doesn't use ssh09:49
HabbotomCant use Lammp on any other user09:49
thoreauputicHabbotom: nonsense09:49
HabbotomCan only start it on root user09:49
HabbotomIts normally known as Xammp09:50
DOOM_NXslacker, so... how can i use VNC over SSH? server: ubuntu, client: winxp09:50
StarnestommyHabbotom: have you tried using sudo?09:50
slackerah well, i shall have a black background then09:50
popeyDOOM_NX: ssh tunneling09:50
JPSmancan I watch TV with linux?09:50
explorer2me +x09:50
slackerDOOM_NX: you have to tunnel the correct port using ssh -L09:50
thoreauputicHabbotom: yo are missing the point I'm afraid - all you need to do is create a user for other purposes - any linux can do that09:50
popeyDOOM_NX: putty on windows supports tunneling09:50
DOOM_NXslacker, i see... but i can set that on putty, no?09:50
slackerDOOM_NX: sorry. you setup port forwarding from withing putty09:51
Dr_willisJPSman,  depends on how you define watch tv. My tv tuner card does work with linux. and i can go to most of the web-sites that have tv broadcast/bideos09:51
thoreauputicHabbotom: then you simply do "su <otheruser>09:51
DOOM_NXso is everything ok in the server's side?09:51
Vasahi, my laptop fan runs 80% on ubuntu, 5% on Live ubuntu, and  5 % on XP runtime. What can cause it?09:52

VasaCould it be, that my cpufreq output says, that no driver installed?09:54
popeyDOOM_NX: http://martybugs.net/smoothwall/puttyvnc.cgi09:54
DOOM_NXwhat is smoothwall?09:55
thoreauputicDOOM_NX: specialised Linux Firewall distribution09:55
DOOM_NXwhy should i need smoothwall?09:55
Vasaany idea?09:56
thoreauputicDOOM_NX: Usually as a gateway/firewall on a LAN etc.09:56
astro76DOOM_NX: perhaps that link tells you how to tunnel vnc over ssh using putty? just a guess...09:56
DOOM_NXastro76, yes i know, but do i need smoothwall?09:57
chervacan I swap the cannels of my souncard ?09:57
thoreauputicDOOM_NX: probably not09:57
astro76DOOM_NX: no09:57
