MrObviousRequinB4: http://wiki.debian.org/bcm43xx Go to download the drivers try 1.00:07
MrObviousRequinB4: It's for debian but it will have the .sys file you need.00:07
LardarseGabySoft: ati on linux is not a happy marriage :-/00:07
macoM4rotku: are you on hardy? there havent been any updates yet...00:07
Scunizidoubledew: sorry had phone call. If your bios settings have remained the same when install all OS's then if you want you could change them but that might mess up the grub reference and eliminate (probably the server) from booting.00:08
GabySoftyeah, i know XD nothing like my nvidia 440 mmx00:08
GabySoftslow, but nice00:08
larson9999maco, i'm on hardy.  i just got 36 updates00:08
RequinB4MrObvious - I'm not sure what to do with the sys file at this point, all i can gleam is i need the firmware00:08
atlanta80John_S: Well that is sufficiently aggravating. Restarted and the ndiswrapper module is loaded, but no wireless cards in ifconfig00:08
macolarson9999: i just did an apt-get update && aptitude full-upgrade and got 000:08

Scuniziteam1432: if it's the alternate cd iso then yes you can use that. If it's the live cd No00:10
macoteam1432: if its an alternate cd, you can upgrade from it00:10

annonymous1how did u fix it Lardarse00:12
John_Satlanta80: OK, that's a problem. Do a "gksudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces" and add "iface wlan0 inet dhcp" with some blank lines after it. Also I would highly recommend backing up your interfaces file tho before you modify it.00:12
macodavid_-_-: well are you trying to move a file thats just sitting in whatever directory you're in or are you trying to move the default firefox?00:12

GhotiPhudI've got a minor problem with the radeon driver on my laptop.  When I output to the LCD and TV, the refresh rate is really slow.  Can anyone shed some light on the issue?00:58
MocIndyGunFreak: It was very anoying to get it running in dual head on my desktop (nvidia) new xorg screen res configurator is useless.  Language switch shortcut was remove/replaced . Now try to upgrade my Dell Desktop to get a blackscren at reboot, tryed to boot the install Cd and same result.  New VNC clients suck, can't access ubuntu 7.10 default vnc server, had to install console vnc clients...00:58

IndyGunFreakshally87: i wouldn't think so.00:58
shally87thanks indy00:59
IndyGunFreakshally87: hang on, i'll give you a link to explain it00:59

shally87indy: thanks00:59
Mocconsidering moving back at 7.10, but It anoying that I might be stuck with the same issues at 8.1000:59
jribKevin`: what do you mean?  I gave you the link about vmware.   Do you have a specific question other than "help with vmware?"00:59
richard___isdepopecath, File Roller. you might also need to install the ‘unrar’ package00:59
IndyGunFreakMoc: what nvidia card do you have? my dual screens work fine01:00
jribL: do you understand what you need to do?01:00
NateFwhat do i do for a cd rom mounting error? need help!!!01:00
Kevin`jrib: yeah.. let me find it in my backlog01:00
koudelkadamaltor_, well it depends what you are going to use the system for. kde4 is a lot easier then kde3 that has become bloated with tons of configuration windows and stuff01:00
sielnt_NateF: you'd do well to pastebin the actual error01:00
isdepopecathrichard___: Yea, I'm getting the 'unrar' package right now01:00
GMWeezelcan I change my desktop icon alignment grid size?01:00
Kevin`jrib: http://pastebin.ca/1002399 - what do I have to do to get vmware  working on ubuntu 8.x?01:00
Kevin`just the console, not the kernel part01:00
MocIndyGunFreak: I finally got it to work, Nvidi 8600 GT.  Had to install nvidia drivers (from the repo)(first time I try to load it, it say it was already installed but not running)01:00
damaltor_koudelka: do you know some examples of what does not work in kde4 / what is missing / what could be annoying/disturbing/...?01:01
arkansasIs 8.10 ok to run on a laptop?01:01
jribKevin`: how did you install it?01:01
NateFit says that same that i said: "a setup error accuried, error: mount CD-ROM", then its bring me to the main menu after i hit enter01:01
Kevin`jrib: tar01:01
jribarkansas: 8.10 does not exist01:01
koudelkadamaltor_, kde 4.0.0 was kinda hard to use in my opinion because there were quite a few annoying things, but now they are at 4.0.3 and it's becoming better01:01
mfefirestarter reported an attack from youtube - should i be concerned?01:01
IndyGunFreakMoc: well, all you would have to do was enable in hardware driver manager, then install nvidia-settings, and thats it.01:01
arkansasjrib: 8.....01:01
jribarkansas: 8.04? sure01:01
shel_lenHow can I switch video drivers for the console?01:01
MocOnce drivers is install, I had to install the nvidia-settings(no idea why it not installed with the driver)01:01
microwaveranyone know how to install custom themes. I can't seem to start the 'Theme Installer'01:02
NateFit says that same that i said: "a setup error accuried, error: mount CD-ROM", then its bring me to the main menu after i hit enter01:02
damaltor_koudelka: are there some really noticeable glitches or things tht really could be missed?01:02
larson9999in hardy when i chose shutdown it starts shutting down but hangs until i do ctl+alt+backspace.  is this a known issue or something specific to my machine?01:02
MocIndyGunFreak: normally yes, problem is on my first install, it show the drivers as already installed..01:02
macoanyone know why id get this error trying to run evolution? Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed.01:02
koudelkadamaltor_, well for me i think the menu and start panel is still incomplete. you can add things to it but you can't move them around. and if you mess things up you kinda have to reset it all01:02
IndyGunFreakMoc: but were they enabled?01:02
IndyGunFreakthere's a difference01:02
GMWeezelcan I change my desktop icon alignment grid size?01:02
NateFPelo: i have a mount error, can u help me out?01:02
arkansasjrib: I started the upgrade and it didn't complete. now my desktop is gone?01:02
jribKevin`: did the wiki page ubottu send not help?01:02
xyphorI see some people are having problems with 8.04 and their keyboard not responding.  I'm having that problem too.  USB legacy support is disabled in my BIOS (one suggested fix)01:02
Mocso I installed it manually, but that didn't work(crash at every reboot) but someone told me I just had to remove some package and it would have work fined01:03
mfemicrowaver did you start it from the applications menu?01:03
koudelkadamaltor_, but as long as you aren't messing with the start panel it's working well01:03
Kevin`jrib: ubottu just said "not for hardy"01:03
richard____alpharesearch, did you have any success?01:03
PeloGMWeezel, I've been looking for the same,   the only thing I found is in nautilus, prefs, compact spacing ,or some such01:03
jribKevin`: didn't he give you a link to a wiki page?01:03
PeloNateF, what's the drive what's the fs and do you have a mount point ?01:03
NateFi have the following error on installation: it says that same that i said: "a setup error accuried, error: mount CD-ROM", then its bring me to the main menu after i hit enter01:03
damaltor_koudelka: so, would you give it a try for a beginner?01:03
MocIndyGunFreak: it was installed, Enable but `Not in Use`01:03
microwavermfe, no, it's not in thtat list01:03
alpharesearch<richard___>  no01:03
microwavermfe, I used deskbar applet01:03
IndyGunFreakMoc: ok..01:03
koudelkadamaltor_, other then that, the thing that is missing in kde4 is really applications using the qt4.4 libary and giving them the kde4 look01:03
Mocanyway, after a reinstall and an update to a different repos, it finally show as not installed01:03
GMWeezelPelo: Alright, thanks. it's a popular annoyance in gnome but i was hoping that maybe after all the complaining they had fixed it.01:03
jribarkansas: can you be more specific?  What exactly happened?  What errors did you get?01:03
NateFdrive C hard drive, whats fs?? how do i make a mount point?01:04
PeloGMWeezel, I'm not saying you can'T fine tune it somewhere, I just haven'T figured it out yet,  try looking it up in the forum01:04
mfemicrowaver go to sys pref main menu and add it01:04
damaltor_koudelka: so lots of apps look like kde3 still?01:04
DanApredistrohi I want to modify my psmouse.ko file. I read that best way is to create a file in  modprobe.d I would like to chat with someone more on this. is anyone familiar with what I am talking about?01:04
shadowbladeHello, I'm trying to get my wireless working on my Dell e1505 with Hardy. I've added the driver for my card with the Windows Wireless Drivers gui. Everything tells me its working - the status light for the wireless is green, ubuntu says its working, etc. But it can't find any networks. I've checked the network with another computer and it works fine. iwlist scaning says 'No scan results' for wlan0. Any ideas?01:04
koudelkadamaltor_, yes, there are apps that looks like kde 3 still01:04
PeloNateF, this is your windows partition you are tying to mount ? inside ubuntu ?01:04
skyhook19Hi, does anyone here no things about encrypting folders?01:04
MocIndyGunFreak: It probably a bug that when the install has NOT sync with the repository atless one, it show bad informations01:04
GMWeezelPelo: been there, have been looking for some months actually. im certain the source code can be edited but i don't want to go through all that every time i watn to change the grid01:05
NateFi dont have any partitios right now01:05
IndyGunFreakMoc: its not a bug01:05
Kevin`jrib: the page doesn't have any instructions for 8.x01:05
Ljrib:  I don't really understand.01:05
microwavermfe, where can I find it?01:05
NateFi have my main hard drive partition01:05

PeloNateF, use my nick when talking to me,  it helps me keep trck01:05
Cameronany ideas why "ifup tap0" would hang ?01:05
plathHi, I have switch between full screen and windowed when i launch fullscreen application (games...)01:05
koudelkadamaltor_, that's why they are saying it's mostly for developers. it's not because it's anything wrong with it, it's just so that developers can start using it and convert their applications01:05
alpharesearch<richard___>  but there is a first line of the error message I previously over looked chmod: invalid mode cindy:cindy - sorry01:05
NateFpelo: sorry01:05
PeloNateF, do you have ubuntu installed or are you trying to isntall it ?01:05
MocIndyGunFreak: well, saying that it installed and enable when it not installed... I call that a BUG01:05
bbyeverKonam: its fixed, thanks!01:05
richard____NateF, try using the ‘check CD for defects’ function01:05
zelrikriandoeh Pelo01:05
jribL: open the file /etc/apt/sources.list in a text editor, copy the contents, visit the pastebin site ubotu gave you, paste the contents there, hit submit, give me the link01:05
NateFPelo: im trying to install it01:05
damaltor_koudelka: ok, well thats alright i think. how about desktop effects, maybe in comparison with compiz? everywhere i read "no compiz needed" and things like that, is that true? or are there only some transparencies and thats it?01:05
mfemicrowaver other / theme installer01:05
Pelohelo zelrikriando01:05
IndyGunFreakMoc: well, you would be misidentifying it.01:06

NateFrichard___: i did, nothing happens01:06
arkansasjrib: my computer froze and I had to do a hard shut down. I restarted and checked for updates, 300+ installed, and the error said "only a partial upgrade was possible"01:06
richard____alphakamp, oh. did I tell you to use chmod instead of chown? oops, sorry!01:06
jribKevin`: which instructions are not applicable to 8.04?01:06
mfemicrowaver system / prefernces / main menu / other / theme installer01:06
zelrikriandoPelo: the problem was....that there were no problem :p01:06

Konambbyever you're welcome :)01:06
damaltor_koudelka: for myself, i dont use them. but my girlfriend wants to show off in course with it :D01:06
richard____alphakamp, (chown changes who owns a file; chmod changes who can access a file)01:06
PeloNateF, ok , are you on the live cd right now ?  goto  menu > system> admin> gnome partiton editor, once you open it , it will scan your hdd and it will mount all available partiton to your desktop01:06
koudelkadamaltor_, if you are thinking of installing for your girlfriend, i think you should consider what she would like the most and that is probably a simple easy system without having much hassle. then gnome is the way to go01:06
plath I have switch between full screen and windowed when i launch fullscreen application (games...). i use ubuntu 8.04 how to fix it ?01:06
microwavermfe, nope can't seem to find it01:06

alpharesearch<richard___>  no you didn't tell me wrong - I messed up01:07
damaltor_koudelka: good thing. i will try a little with gnome, and consider that too. thanks so far for all your help!01:07

hamledI was in the middle of of upgrading to 8.04 (at the stage where I was downloading package updates) and I lost my network connection and it got cancelled. Now the update-manager no longer gives me any upgrade options (and says there aren't any packages to update).

koudelkaandreskru, vista now does the same, cashing up all ram to improve performance. linux has been doing this for quite some time01:38
Bodsdabazhang, no i havent tried because he said it was for lockups -- extensions?what do you mean partitions? -- yes this is hardy01:38
fluxyI think it goes simply ./configure, make and make install. but make doesn't work01:39
damaltor_andreskru: hmm maybe then the 32bit version needs just less ram... but i dont think thats a problem. work with it a time and see if it is slower.01:39
Bodsdafluxy, have u done    sudo apt-get install build-essentials01:39
bazhangBodsda: no I mean how many extensions in FF? like rss feeds, adblock plus etc.01:39

o0Chris0oanyone know how to diable that01:44
koudelkaandreskru, you can easily upload it to a site like http://bayimg.com/01:44

richard____NateF, then you should read about making it more secure01:45
koudelkaosmosis, i'm not even sure vbox has that feature01:45
Scientusbazhang, basically the use would be for encryption, one encrypted filesystem and one not, so it would be transparent to the os, there would have to be special cases for identical file names, and maybe the directory format wont work,    but basically a file tree that is a merge between two filesystems with the same directory structure, that are both / and that depending on weather u want it...01:45
Scientus...encrypted or not u put it on one drive or the other01:45
fluxyBodsda: Both the install and readme files list the normal procedure "./configure, make, make install" that's all.01:45

eboyjrWhats new in Hardy?02:06
[T]an3my network dropped just after i asked my question... so i did not see if there were any replies... sorry to have to re-ask.02:07
drivetraxbazhang,  thanks for setting me up with Ubuntu.. it's great.  A great big tweak02:07
ManBluebazhang alright02:07
x1250eboyjr: no one is going to answer that...02:07
[T]an3when i am running in a single desktop mode my compiz stuff works perfect.02:07
Dr_willisjackal,  the menu.lst has kernel options to enable various modes for the framebuffer, ## e.g. defoptions=vga=791 resume=/dev/hda5         The vga= sets the default res. I think the framebuffer may be disabled by default under hardy. Once you have the framebuffer enabled you can use the fbset and other commands to tweak it on the fly02:07
eboyjrx1250, lol02:07
[T]an3however when running in dual screen mode it does not.02:07
bazhangwww.fsckin.com has the details (in Easy English) eboyjr02:07
tininx1250 you did02:07
[T]an3any ideas?02:07
[T]an3i am using aticonfig for my desktop setup02:07
MattevtOK, I'll slightly reword it. I need ubuntu to recognize when I'm unplugged from the external monitor. I'm new to Linux as of yesterday so as detailed instructions would be helpful.02:07

John_Sshadowblade: here was what simonf1 said earlier: 1. sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist 2. Change “blacklist bcm43xx” to “#blacklist bcm43xx” 3. Restart. You should get a restricted driver message. 4. Enable restricted drive. 5. Restart and you are good to go.   Did you do this exactly? That's what supposedly worked for him.03:06

AndrewBuckrokumanxes: then im not sure i can really help you, i misunderstood your original qeustion and thought i might be able to.  I don't know much about wifi.03:38
sourgrapearistocles - if you go to a prompt and type sudo reboot does it hang somewhere?03:38

JohnnyWellsEverytime I log in, the network manager requests access to the default key ring, and I get prompted for a password.  Can anyone tell me how to make it stop doing this?04:20

h00kanoble: you can disable it, then re-enable it, and it should download the drivers, you'll need to reboot04:20
shthap3nsDATmafia: no, i was told not to use hardware raid, since i have "fakeraid", and to use software raid instead04:20
h00kanoble: and they should then be "In Use"04:20

h00kanoble: that did not work?04:31

shthap3nsfuricle: well, the first time i installed ubuntu, i used "fake raid" (through the mobo's BIOS). i did the guided install and it gave me a 2.7gb swap by default04:34
USN1520yeah it will save time to use torrents04:34
sourgrapeeboy - yea, if you get a torrent or a better mirror that won't take long to get back04:34
USN1520less prone for errors too04:34
patifah00k: Apparently not mine... yet.04:34

DrUnKnMuNkYhey everyone. i can't get apache to start. tried /etc/init.d/apache2 start. it tells me OK and gives me no error messages but nothing actually runs. any ideas?04:35
sourgrapeanoble, probably have to put sudo in front of the command04:35
h00kanoble: cp04:35
eboyjrIts hard to tell where the mirrors are when you download Ubuntu, its poorly done04:35
h00kanoble: cp 'filename' 'destination'04:35

patifaDrUnKnMuNkY: Try #ubuntu-server (is that an official channel?)04:35
USN1520eboyjr, at the bottom of the webpage select view all mirrors04:36
anobleh00k: but the command that someone else gave me had like a mv in it04:36
fdeeboyjr: It's designed that way to make it less confusing for you...04:36
VletDrUnKnMuNkY: you're supposed to use: sudo apache2ctl start04:36
fdepatifa: yup04:36
h00kanoble: mv will move it, like "cut"04:36
CUBeR64hi everyone, i'd just like to ask if the creative zen stone 1gb allows booting of the ubuntu 8.04 livecd04:36
sourgrapethat's right, it's like cut... where cp is copy04:36
VletDrUnKnMuNkY: well, using what you did is fine, but apache2ctl is what's recommended04:36
shthap3nsfuricle: i'm gonna have to bother you with one more question (im actually quite the linux noob): number of active devices = 2, number of spare devices = 0 is correct, right?04:36

anobleyrlnry: right ....04:39
eboyjrUSN1520, Alright, th04:39
yrlnryanoble: WHen you said that, I realized that the problem was that HH had installed Firefox 3, and that the terminal program wants to use the default browser, which is FF2, which is no longer present since the upgrade.04:39
kingsley_zissouissue: fresh install of HH on my toshiba lappy, is there a work-around to use glx? or a way to get mobility radeon 9000/9100 IGP to render 3D on HH? had no issues on GG.04:40

Mathmanbalgarath: go with supermicro boards.  intel chipsets.  seagate disks, with a good long warranty.  raid if you're able.  nvidia video cards.  good companies?  eh, you get more for your dollar just building something yourself05:44
geniisven_oostenbrink: You may find some bash scripts to modify for that purpose here http://www.reallylinux.com/docs/autoftp.shtml05:44

earthlingnomasteryoda: athros n552305:46
ScuniziN1N31NCHN41L6, who told you to delete /boot/grub.. that's what start your system05:46
sourgrapeamnatz - well, it was worth what you paid for it :)  Good luck05:46
nomasteryoda... if not, then look at the session manager for gnome adnaps05:46
Jordan_UN1N31NCHN41L6, By whom were you told to delete /boot/grub ? In most cases that will prevent your system from booting05:46
mojofde::  http://paste.ubuntu.com/8830/05:46
nomasteryodadown under system, session05:46
Mathmanbalgarath: sun puts out some really sweet systems if you want to have a name brand behind it.  hp if you don't want to spend as much as sun costs.  spose it depends on your situation really05:46
Don_MiguelFlannel: thanks, I'll go look ... again!05:46
mojofde::  and thanks for looking :)05:46
Alinoni have the exact error message now - this is what i get when the Ubuntu partitioner begins to scan my hdd's - WARNING device /dev/dss has a logical sector size of 2048.  Not all parts of GNU parted support this at the moment, and the working code is high experiemental.  Then it just sits where scanning but never does anything.05:46
roshanenew help..i'm not getting some videos to play online05:46
mojoroshane::  format?05:46
shthap3nshi all, i'm running HH(server). could someone kindly tell me the command to install the GUI desktop?05:46
Jordan_Uroshane, Try right clicking them and "open in totem movie player"05:47
balgarathMathman, I'll probably take your advice and build myself05:47
fdemojo: Take a look at /etc/apt/sources.list ... has it been changed to hardy?05:47
N1N31NCHN41L6i need to delete - then sudo grub-install /dev/sda  then sudo update-grub - i got 2 os and the grub only lets me run one05:47
Flannelshthap3ns: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop05:47
mojoshthap3ns::  sudo aptitude install ubuntu-desktop05:47
shthap3nsthanks, Flannel!05:47
Flannelshthap3ns: You'll (probably) also want to switch to the generic kernel, if you plan on using this as a desktop machine05:47
earthlingnomasteryoda: its a wireless ethernet adapter. not a wifi card you put in the laptop slot but one that has a big antena that goes to the roof top. SUB-326 i guess05:47
sourgrapebalgarath - nothing like cutting your hands on your own PC's sheet metal case =)05:47
Alinonanyone have a clue as to what the deal is? i've never had problems installing ubuntu until 8.0405:47
fdemojo: Also, in this particular case, don't use aptitude, it is far better in most cases, but may be compounding the issue currently...05:47
N1N31NCHN41L6any ideas05:47
Jaggednzroshane: Installed Ubuntu extras ?05:47
