WalloOkkathman, your ipod is probably not in fat32.00:21
nano__Is it common for gparted live cd to just shutdown the system?00:21
Chaotic_DescentI'm a little rusty... why would my network settings need a DNS server for 192.168.1.1 for my router? or is that like... everything goes through that address?00:21
mouseboyxHow do you mount a cardreader?00:21
CoolFoxg'damn this channel moves fast.00:21
mediclawrenbut presto ubuntu has a 64 bit ver00:21
Voortnah, CoolFox you just read slow ;-)00:22
kkathmanWalloO, wellm if that was the case I'd probably get a message that it cant be mounted00:22
CoolFoxare you calling wikipedians slow?00:22
CoolFox:)00:22
Chaotic_Descentthere's no settings... it's just an IP address... is it going in, coming out? I can't figure this out.00:22
kkathmanbut Im not getting even that00:22
mediclawreni guess u cant change os because of just one app00:22
erUSULChaotic_Descent: maybe your router has a caching dns proxy00:22
sn9_CoolFox: soy == "i'm"00:22
untraceableanyone know why my atheros internal nic isnt recognized00:22
CoolFoxthats the channel that i'm comparing for basis.00:22
WalloOkkathman, you should format the main partition as fat32. Simplest way is to plug it on a PC with itune, it should ask you to convert it or something like that00:22
CoolFoxsn9_, thnks.00:22
ceeAnyone got kiba-dock to run smoothly yet?00:22
hiptobecubici have internet access just fine except for aol in pidgin. When i tell pidgin to use a proxy for the protocol, it works. when i tell it to use gnome settings (which are clearly working just fine) it says that it can't resolve the host name00:22
glitsj16Guiri: check if this works any better .. http://paste.ubuntu.com/26323/00:22
Chaotic_DescenterUSUL: no, it's an Ubuntu setting, not a router setting. I can't connect to my router.00:22
mouseboyxWhat is the dameon that automounts usb devices in gnome?00:23
WalloOkkathman, not really, since the partition format may be unknown. Try fdisk -l00:23
kkathmanok00:23
sttng359Anyone have an idea why ldapsearch and friends don't appear to be able to use SSL/TLS?00:23
CoolFoxhey, what's that other fdisk program, slackware has it too.00:23
ShujahChaotic_Descent, chnage the dns to 127.0.0.1 (i,e, local host) put the router on roaming mode and check00:23
sn9_WalloO: he said he used it in windows, so it must be known00:23
Chaotic_Descentand I don't even know what a caching DNS proxy is...00:23
WalloOsn9_, you're right00:23
Simuloushey if i set up ubuntu server as a VM can i use something on it as a gateway to enable to me manage network traffic from certain hosts on my network. or any apps i could install on my ubuntu desktop machine to do the same thing? thanks00:23

vaportrailnew123it makes it think theres 1 big screen, where i need it to recognize that there are two00:28
CoolFoxfine, 6 GB partition.00:29
geniimaconga: Yes, just remove the one you don't want in the package manager and it will default back to the last one00:29
ShujahCoolFox, thats when ram is 1 gb or less, if one has 2 gb ram formula changes to ram = swap00:29
glitsj16maconga: it's possible;, but why not make a lower one default in GRUb ?00:29
unopCoolFox, that's for something under 512MB -- you rarely will use 2X RAM for swap if you have anything more than that00:29

nano__man gparted sucks00:31
Chaotic_Descentwhy does the pppoeconf put in two DNS servers? is one incoming and one outgoing or something? I still don't understand what a single IP address has to do with DNS servers.00:31
ShujahChaotic_Descent, restart networking and dont forget to put the connection on roaming mode00:31
sn9_maconga: which card?00:31
xTheGoat121xAfternoon everyone00:31

HymnToLifeChaotic_Descent: you have two DNS servers so you can still browse the Web if one breaks00:31
trashguyWalloO, i hibernate 4gb ram, but i got a raid 0 setup00:31
Chaotic_DescentShujah: my network settings are set to roaming all the time to begin with. I can't change the router's settings since I can't connect to it. I've been resetting network settings with every damned Ubuntu command I know of.00:31
sn9_maconga: no, the wifi in your computer00:32
WalloOunop, ha... I'm not used to hibernating with linux00:32

Simulouslinksys wrt54G i did change the OS on it but didnt have desired effects :( .00:34
skragso i have hardy and i love it accept i usualy wait till theres a bunch of updates before i download them and everytime i seem to update it, it adds 2 entrys to my grub menu.... it ads just a repeat of what it had before so i have like 3 entrys for ubuntu and 3 entrys for safe mode... anyone know why it might be adding itself to my grub over and over?00:34
sn9_!RootSudo | Dewente00:34
ubottuDewente: sudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome), or !kdesu (KDE)00:34
kkathmanunop no, nothing00:34
chriswrpenopticon: ok will do that  , thnx00:34
unopskrag, those are entries for different kernels -- it's normal00:34
Dewenterootsudo | dewente ?00:34
WalloOSimulous, I loaded mine with ddwrt and it works very well. I have v800:35
Simulous+ it would be easyer and better to set up a virtual machine on my server00:35
kkathmanunop heres the  pastebin on what you asked for  http://paste.ubuntu.com/26325/00:35
xTheGoat121xHas anyone noticed that Hardy's interface looks bigger than Gutsy's?00:35
=== hobbs_ is now known as timthelion
unopskrag, and they shouldn't be the same -- you'll notice that each kernel has a different version number00:35
unopit appears to me that your device is being detected but is disconnected after it settles down - it doesn;t say why -- this might suggest that the ipod has problems -- try rebooting your ipod with it plugged into the computer00:35
unopkkathman, ^^00:35
skragunop thanks, so i have to go into grub and delete the ones i dont want?00:35

Simulousyeah mine too :) i think it didnt work because of the version :) it was a while ago, then all i wanted was a bigger port forwarding table cus the provided one is uselessly small!00:36
Simulous:P00:36
unopskrag, no, just remove the older kernels from synaptic -- but i suggest you keep atleast one working older kernel installed just incase you run into problems with the new current one00:36
Shujahsorry left click and open manual confguration00:36

KlrSpzhey guys, i have my HTPC hooked up to my receiver (AVR), but when i turn it on w/o my AVR being on, the video card doesn't enable... I've been able to kill X and it detects it as it reactivates nvidia's driver, but I have to then log in (I have auto-login enabled)... how would i possibly get it to do this without requiring a new login.. i don't mind killing GDM/X, but don't want to have to log in ever01:23
CodddErin scite how i can ALWAYS view the line numbers ?01:23
sn9_anybody know how i can find out the status of an SRU?01:23
plikonthefence921: id mount first, so mount /dev/lah /mnt &&  banshee --whatever01:23
KlrSpzi am trying to restart GDM, but it won't start it once it logs me out (aka, kills X)01:23
rvtcadminShujah, I don't see usr/home.  under my username's home directory there is no gnome2.  sorry i don't understand the gnome file system very well yet01:23
plikI think you can use  banshee --whatever :   (or psossibly ;) mount but you'd have to test to see01:24
Shujahrvtcadmin, you will have to enable hidden files it's ctrl+h in nautilus01:24
rvtcadminShujah, I already did sudo apt -get install ubuntu-desktop.  will this hurt anything if it was already installed?01:24
Shujahrvtcadmin, I don't think it'll hurt01:24
ftehws3a: i found it.  you can get a full interface to metacity's window management actions via gconf-editor (so that move 'window to workspace X' can be mapped)01:24
galshawnaKlrSpz, I executed the .bin file and installed. According to the terminal, after I typed yes to agree to the terms, everything was installed fine. However, when I opened firefox and attempted to open pool at games.yahoo.com, it still reported the missing java plugin.01:25
ftehws3a: thanks for ur help anyhoo.01:25
Sergeant_Ponyanyone know how I can stop my laptop's hd from spinning down when it's idle?01:25
rvtcadminShujah, ok, phew :)  they are enabled, but i see no usr/home01:25
spoontasticgalshawna, you downloaded the .bin version of FF?01:25
KlrSpzgalshawna: odd, i'm not sure... it all worked flawless for me?01:25
spoontasticwhy not just grab it from the repo?01:25
s3aftehw: sry lol and so i no sudo gedit gconf-editor?01:26
galshawnaspoontastic, I'm using the standard ubuntu 8.04 installation of FF3.01:26
KlrSpzgalshawna: you could always try wiping out your firefox config (~/.mozilla) and start over from scratch... backup your bookmarks if you do01:26
Shujahrvtcadmin, Then I don't think gnome was installed01:26
galshawnaspoontastic, I'm just trying to get it to work with java01:26
s3aftehw: o no, i dont no wat to do :(01:26
Shujahgalshawna, from terminal > sudo update-alternatives --config java             <select sun java.01:27
pliks3a: sudo only works on commandline, so it wont work with gedit01:27
bloodrockrvtcadmin, check at the login screen under options>sessions see if gnome is listed01:27
Shujahgalshawna, from terminal > sudo update-alternatives --config xulrunner-1.9-javaplugin.so  <<select sun java01:27
Shujahgalshawna, from terminal > provided you nstalled sun java01:27
EagleScreenyou can run sudo gedit01:27
gregbradyplik, why can't you sudo gedit file?01:27
galshawnaShujah, I think I've done that before, but I'll give it a second chance.01:27
spoontasticgalshawna, have you tried the JRE package?01:28
galshawnaspoontastic, yes.01:28
gregbradyplik, works fine here.01:28
bloodrockEagleScreen, correct command is gksudo gedit01:28
sn9_bloodrock: no, it's gksu gedit01:28
EagleScreenand what is the matter with sudo gedit?01:28
gregbradysudo gedit works fine01:29
plikoh, ok my mistake - gksudo is the proper command for sudoing gui appsgui a01:29
ShujahEagleScreen, nothing but for GUI mostly gksu is used. a Better habbit :P01:29
sn9_plik: no, gksu is01:29
plikthought you might have probs01:29
ftehws3a: do: gconf-editor then browse apps>>metacity>>[whatever you want]01:29
galshawnaIs this a common problem with people upgrading to Ubuntu 8.04 and FF3?01:29
plikok so my point remains, theres a difference command to sudo for you gui kids01:29
ftehwedit the command key (right click is easiest) and enter it in manually.01:29
rvtcadminbloodrock, it was listed, but when i tried to switch to it it said it was not installed01:29
rvtcadminbloodrock, is installing presently01:30
spoontasticgalshawna, usually flash is the problem with FF, not Java01:30
gregbradyplik, sudo command works just fine.01:30

galshawnaspoontastic, yes, and I've had enough experience getting around flash problems that I'm usually all set with that. Except I still can't get youtube to run smoothly in fullscreen (the refresh rate sucks.01:30

KcajI can't even barely use Ubuntu any more01:31
KcajIt keeps making me log back in if I try to change bindings01:31
rvtcadminbloodrock, for better or for worse i already tried sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop01:31

EagleScreensn9_ then what must I do?01:32
m1r!enter > kcaj01:32
ubottukcaj, please see my private message01:32
Shujahrvtcadmin, a better way would be to go to synaptic and unistall gnome if its there then reinstall it, but it will wipe out the diff configs01:32
sn9_EagleScreen: who is the mfr? hauppauge? or avermedia?01:32
galshawnaspoontastic, yes.01:32
slavikhow do I get sound input to be echoed to the speakers? (there is no hardware mixing on my sound card which is a cmi8788)01:32
GuiriIs the package maintainer for apache2 around? Essentially, for some reason the system is overriding the rewrite rules as described http://rewrite.drbacchus.com/rewritewiki/SSL and still allowing http: access to the site, although it is accessible via https:01:32
EagleScreenTVISTO01:32
bloodrockrvtcadmin, was being used for desktop envi01:32
KcajWell anyway, I'm being serious here. I can't close or minimze windows or anything any more. All  ever did was install and start to use Compiz fusion and emerald from synaptic01:32
sn9_EagleScreen: and what is the name of their driver?01:32
galshawnaspoontastic, Shujah just gave me a website whose instructions I'm going to follow for now and see if it helps. If that website doesn't end up solving my problem, then I'll be back.01:32
rvtcadminShujah, thanks, i'll remember for next time.01:33
rvtcadminbloodrock, xfce/xubuntu was being used01:33
KcajIt worked fine for a while., but these days, I have to start in safe mode, then go to normal, and even tyrying to use compiz fusion requires me to keep loging back in (throws me out0 and then never even works right.01:33
gregbradyKcaj, do your windows have borders?01:33
bloodrockrvtcadmin,  oh01:33
Kcaj"Borders"?01:33
KcajNo, I mean I can File, Edit, etc. but no close, minimize and maximize and such.01:33
bloodrockrvtcadmin,  was gnome ever on it01:33
gregbradyKcaj, do you see the X for close button?01:33
Cyndreanyone want to see my hand x-rays?01:33
sn9_EagleScreen: and what is the name of their driver?01:34
EagleScreenwww.t-visto.com, it uses driver dvb-af901x or dvb-usb-af901x, i mean kernel modules01:34
root0to whom i have to address about a strange update? there is libdns32 and now after update there is another package _identical_ but with name libdns35. after this update libdns32 apears like an orphaned package. what shal i do? remove the libdns32 package or not? is libdns35 the same package as libdns32, or not?01:34
rvtcadminbloodrock, apparently, i found gnome files under /share01:34
gregbradyKcaj...ok...sec...01:34
Kcajgregbrady: You seem to be on to something, I mean I already noticed I had no close option or anything, it s VERY annoying, I can';t even move my windows around./01:34
sn9_EagleScreen: you may want to use the pkgs prepared by martin pitt last month01:34
rvtcadminbloodrock, though maybe those could just be old preference files?01:34
gregbradyKcaj, I have the same problem on my pclos machine.01:34
KcajThis problem, has esentially almost completely disabled my OS and made it impossible to use... starting up is a major chore and requires I always go through safe mode first, and repair packages and x server, etc.01:35
bloodrockrvtcadmin, they do use some gnome stuff on xubuntu01:35
gregbradyKcaj, I have to start the Compiz button every time I boot01:35
sn9_EagleScreen: they will probably work for you01:35
EagleScreensn9_ where can i find them?01:35
rvtcadminbloodrock, ah, i see.01:35
Kcajgregbrady: Same her, but now, when I start it, I can't even use it, if I try to, it makes me log out, and back in and just completely screws me.01:35
sn9_EagleScreen: search01:35
spoontasticKcaj, have you tried...uninstalling compiz01:35
spoontastic?01:36
EagleScreenokay, i will search in the garden :D01:36
KcajAny ideas? I have an amazing video card, there is no reason this should be going on, seriously. Really kind of annoying. I want to use Ubuntu bad, but this, and no support for m ywireless card are going to make me forced to switch back to Windows :(01:36
KcajShould I really do that? Uninstall and reinstall>?01:36
bloodrockrv so right now it stil telling ya gnome not installed01:36
ozzloyhow do i set up my server to send email?  for instance with a bugzilla install?01:36
ShujahKcaj,  > your graphic card is not recognized or simply compiz is misbehaving?01:36
sn9_Kcaj: which wifi?01:36
KEALw00t free Hannah Montana 3-D glasses at WALMART!01:36
KcajCompiz is misbehaving bad.01:36
KcajSome Broadcom, Dell Dual Buand 1490 WLAN minicard01:37
KcajI read like 100 tutorials online to make it work, none worked, they all just screwed it up worse I think.01:37
ShujahKcaj, have you tweaked compiz-setting through advance desktop effects?01:37
KcajShujah: I think it is compiz, I had absolutely no problems before compz, and compiz worked great actually until I did a reboot.01:37
sn9_Kcaj: that is supported -- just install the b43-fwcutter pkg01:37
pradacan someone tell me if Ubuntu has a chat client the supports voip01:37
KcajOh, yes, yes, yes I have, but now, I cant even do that. Trying to use compiz, makes me log back in.01:37
KcajOkay, I might have to ask you about that again01:38
ticktickhow do I resolve package dependancies01:38
KcajBecause I have to close IRC to open anything else, due to my current problem01:38
KcajI'm going to close this nor, and remove compiz, and then reinstall, I'll let you guys know how it went.01:38
plikprada: ekiga01:38
rvtcadminbloodrock, i don't know, I can't use synaptic now because apt-get is installing ubuntu desktop01:38
pradathanks01:38
ticktickhow do I resolve package dependancies with virtualbox??01:38
tj83Kcaj, i think re-installing and coming back here to resolve"out-of-box" issues is amongst the best ideas.01:38
ShujahKcaj: using emerald manager with compiz?01:39
gishi01:39
sn9_ticktick: ose or from virtualbox.org?01:39
bloodrockrvtcadmin, oh ok then it prob installing gnome01:39
gis i lost my souces.list (a my mistake .. i deleted it )01:39
gis tring to find a solution, i tried to use a sorces.list from an other ubuntu ..01:39
rvtcadminbloodrock, yeah, i'll just wait and see what happens01:39
gis. but unluky maybe it is wrong for these machine01:40
Shujahrvtcadmin, :D worse case scenario in installs a newer version on top of an old one.01:40

eekok thanks01:42
ticktick<sn9_> libssl0.9.801:42

fiyawerxspoontastic: for 20$ when you can order it / dl it for free?01:49
galshawnaDoes anyone know how I can get Wine Gecko installed properly? While installing WoW every single time an installer, or even just the launcher, that uses HTML opened, a pop-up saying that Wine needs to install Gecko would come up where I could push install, but it wouldn't do anything.01:50
fiyawerxhope that was ssarcastic heh01:50
rvtcadminShujah, ... hmm, then i'm in trouble01:50
jinShujah, I am there but can't any way to put them to the right01:50
jm2ki have Hardy with kernel 2.6.22.14-generic, would it be smart to update to new kernel 2.6.25.10-generic or not?01:50
ticktick<sn9_>01:51
jinShujah, found it :-)01:51
spoontasticfiyawerx, how does a person know to download it for free if they don't know much about alternative operating systems? It's free advertising in one of the biggest chain retailers in the country, which is a triumph for open source01:51
sn9_jm2k: use 2.6.24-19-generic01:51
sn9_ticktick: you did all 3 steps?01:51
z662does anyone know how i can restrict a user from accessing the document root directory?01:51
jm2ksn9_: best way to upgrade to 2.6.24-19?01:52
galshawnaAnyone here know about Gecko, which allows launchers and other non-web browser applications to display HTML? And how to install it?01:52
ticktick<sn9_>ok already newest version 0 done 0 etc no changes made01:52
sn9_z662: by changing permissions01:52
bloodrockCirclesCenter, by shoehorn you mean automaticaly resize to add ubuntu?01:52
Shujahjin: in title bar layout change title to thsi > (2)C(3)N(2)X::T(2)S <<<but backup the theme before hand01:52
sn9_jm2k: should simply ask to do it for you01:52
z662sn9_, but then apache wont serve them....unless i did it wrong01:52
galshawnaIs there a wine channel?01:53
bob3213243what is a keyring01:53
sn9_z662: oh, you mean a web user...01:53
CirclesCenterOk maybe I'm explaining this wrong. When it asks where to install Ubuntu it gives me no options on where to put it.01:53
slavikgalshawna: #winehq01:53
Shujahgalshawna, try playonlinux <-- go to their sitew01:53
bloodrockCirclesCenter, you useing the livecd right now01:53
galshawnaShujah, I'll check that out.01:53
sn9_CirclesCenter: are you using the ubuntu windows installer, or did you boot the cd?01:54
z662sn9_, i have a user that i gave ssh perms to, but i have htaccess files in my document root i dont want the user to be able to access, however i would still like to be able to sign into apache via http to access them01:54
CirclesCenterNo I'm in XP, but I can be in a minute if need be.01:54
Shujahrvtcadmin, worry not dude you already know more about Ubuntu then most :D01:54
sn9_z662: sounds like your groups are screwed up01:54
CirclesCenterI was booting the Live Cd sorry for the bad answer01:54
slavikhow do I get sound input to be echoed to the speakers? (there is no hardware mixing on my sound card which is a cmi8788)01:54
=== gardar is now known as gardar`afk
sn9_CirclesCenter: the livecd does ask at some point01:55
z662sn9_, what group ownership should document root be then? i dont have an apache group according to 'groups'01:55
Shujahrvtcadmin, one thing you ought to be careful about is root01:55
sn9_z662: maybe you should make one01:55
sn9_z662: www-data01:55
CirclesCentersn_9, yeah when it asks where to put it the list is completely blank.01:55
rvtcadminShujah, yes?  you mean where you run the scary delete every thing command?01:56
sn9_CirclesCenter: oh. do you have an older sata controller?01:56
z662sn9_,  so make a group of www-data, then use chown www-data /var/www and everything should work fine with apache?01:56
ticktick<sn9_> thanks, problem not solved yet but i have to go to bed now - very tired. i'll try in the morning. thank you for having a go.01:56
galshawnaIf anyone here has used wine, cedega, and crossover, which do you think works best?01:56
sn9_z662: chgrp, but yes01:56
z662thanks sn9_01:56
=== gardar`afk is now known as gardar
sn9_galshawna: crossover, wine, cedega, in that order01:57
Shujahrvtcadmin, when ever your do any actions as a root it *might* change some settings such as ownership of files/directories/devices which then wont be accessible by non-root users and ofcourse wrong commands acn cripple the system,01:57
bloodrocksn9_, think he said his drive was a sata II01:57
galshawnasn9_, what advantages does crossover have to wine?01:57
sn9_bloodrock: i asked about the controller, not the drive01:57
Shujahrvtcadmin, so until and unless you do something wrong as a root, you are safe :d01:58
sn9_galshawna: more recent updates&fixes, priority support01:58
galshawnaDo programs run better under crossfire than in wine? Like would I be better off trying to get WoW to work in crossover than in wine?01:58
CirclesCentersn_9 I don't think it's too old. This is what it says about the deal: ATI SB600 South Bridge: 4x SATA II RAID01:59
sn9_galshawna: WoW works fine under wine01:59

sn9_CirclesCenter: put it in AHCI mode01:59
galshawnasn9_, It actually is working alright for me. Only that when I close wine my resolution is all screwed up until I restart.01:59
rvtcadminShujah, every time I do something as sudo, i'm doing it as root?01:59
galshawnaCyndre, yes I have the wine repo.01:59
Shujahrvtcadmin,  yup01:59
CirclesCentersn9_, not to be a moron, but that's in the BIOS right?01:59
bob3213243what is a keyring02:00
sn9_CirclesCenter: yes, and make sure you're installing 8.04.1, not some earlier version02:00
galshawnasn9_, I meant WoW. when I close WoW after playing it my resolution is bad.02:00
Cyndregalshawna: Thought I would check - from what I have heard WoW works fine in wine, but I dont have any experience playing it02:00
Shujahbut using sudo for synaptic is ok - using root account e,g, sudo nautlilus is a bit risky unless you are sure what you are doing02:01
galshawnaCyndre, I haven't really had a hard time with wine. It works fine for me, I was just kind of curious what might be better than wine. The only thing I really don't like is how WoW messes up my screen resolution.02:01
CirclesCentersn9_, rodger that, thank you very much, this is my second go round with linux and before asking a question was like asking to be shot, now however it is much much nicer and you get answers instead of made fun of.02:01

koolranchany kind of file that's not in the synaptic, like the eMusic.com music player and mp3s02:44
koolranchand java02:44
ASULutzyakuma55: Oh, is it -P? I may be wrong there ;)02:44
sn9_ASULutzy: -O is for naming the downloaded file02:45
cdm10koolranch: to install Java, just run the command < sudo aptitude install sun-java6-plugin02:45
akuma55?02:45
koolranchI've only had Ubuntu for a day02:45
ASULutzysn9_: Ah ok, I always just cd to the directory and run wget inside the directory :P02:45
koolranchok02:45
akuma55what does the -p stand for02:45
ASULutzyakuma55: man wget02:45
koolranchhow did you know the name of the file "sun-java6-plugin?"02:46
notWebsn9_: what was supposed to happen?02:46
koolranchand do I need to download it to my desktop first?02:46
cdm10koolranch: I've just answered the question "how do I install java" quite a lot :)02:46
cdm10koolranch: no, the package manager will download the package and install it for you.02:46
koolranchok02:46
ASULutzykoolranch: Experience, but also you can usually click System -> Administration -> Synaptic package manager, and search in there. Also if you sudo apt-get install bash-completion, it lets you use tab complete for lots of things, even package names02:46
sn9_never mind; my bad. just try to sync anyway02:46
cdm10koolranch: the command aptitude is just another way of accessing the package manager, just like Synaptic or Add/Remove02:46
sn9_nonever mind; my bad. just try to sync anyway02:46
sn9_notWeb: never mind; my bad. just try to sync anyway02:47
koolranchso I could just type in that command line right now, and Ubuntu would find java and install it?02:47
cdm10koolranch: Well, it might, and if not, we'll have to enable something, and it will. Just try it :)02:47
koolranchok, I'll try it02:47
cdm10koolranch: Do you know how to get to the Terminal to enter commands?02:47
notWebyeah, got that.  It actually says "Put PDA in Cradle (/dev/pilot) and press HotSync button."02:47

=== eumesmo is now known as trakinas
ASULutzyheh, I wonder how bad I would hose up my system trying to resolve all the dependencies for Intrepid's version of xserver-xorg-video-intel inside my Hardy install...02:48
dolphin_noelis there something bether then mp3info to check the bitrate from mp3?!02:48
ASULutzyjm2k: Usually you can just sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade02:48
dolphin_noelsometimes looks it dont give to me the right values02:49
dolphin_noel:x02:49
sn9_ASULutzy: very badly02:49
trakinasdolphin_noel, on the therminal?02:49
koolranchok, it appears to be installing cdm1002:49
trakinas*terminal02:49
cdm10dolphin_noel: if you're in Gnome, you can look in the properties window... why do you think tehy're wrong?02:49
notWebsn9_: trying the sync.  Nothing happening on the PC.  Eventually gives up on PDA.02:49
koolranchthanks a ton02:49
cdm10koolranch: No problem.02:49
dolphin_noeltrakinas nathing to nautilus?!02:49
koolranchhow do I install other things, though, like the emusic music player and mp3s?02:49
drashASULutzy: it's not worth the effort if you want to keep some hair for that engagement party, congrats btw ;)02:49
dolphin_noeltrakinas ohh you tell to i see it in terminal right? :x inside watch the nautilus?!02:49
jm2ksn9_: might be me but ur replies are a bit cryptic.02:49
sn9_notWeb: oh, duh, i forgot that you need to edit the udev rules02:49
gluerhow do i configure my intel card to allow dual montior with extended desktop support in hardy? is there an app i can download?02:50
ASULutzysn9_: Yea, agree... I'm bummed, in Intrepid everything works perfectly for me except virtualbox crashes when I boot XP vdi's that work under Hardy, and in Hardy there are a few compiz plugins that don't work, but more importantly S-video doesn't work, so I have to do this constant reboot dance and it stinks :(02:50
jm2kASULutzy: tried apt-get but nothing.02:50
cdm10koolranch: As for the eMusic download manager, it looks like I have to sign up first in order to see the client to download, so I can't really help you with that... you might want to try googling for it.02:50
trakinasdolphin_noel, you see it on nautilus or terminal?02:50
ASULutzydrash: lol thanks ;) and good point02:50
dolphin_noelcdm10 because i have some mp3 that sometimes give to me some values and i click again and give it to me anothers ...02:50
koolranchok02:50
cdm10dolphin_noel: well, that's really weird...02:50
koolranchwhat about mp3s?02:50
dolphin_noeltrakinas well ussually in the natilus :x02:50

koolranchI download them and they just show up as an xml file on my desktop02:50
tech0007jm2k: what's 'uname -r'02:50
cdm10koolranch: if you want to download an mp3 from a website, just right-click it and click Save As, just like in Firefox on any other OS.02:50
cdm10koolranch: where are you downloading them from?02:50
hlfshellhowdy gang02:50
koolranchemusic.com02:50
travisjordan_9: it worked02:51
sn9_notWeb: search the forums; the answer is there somewhere02:51
hlfshellif you're curious, i just lost respect for myself for saying howdy.02:51
dolphin_noelcdm10 yes that why i'm asking because i have sometimes like 96 kbps ... but the file size and everything is very good ...02:51
ASULutzyjm2k: Ah, that's not available in Hardy afaik, you'd have to compile that yourself I believe...02:51
trakinasdolphin_noel, no idea. i check bitrates when playing. lol02:51

cdm10koolranch: it seems like you might need some sort of plugin in that case... I'm really not familiar with eMusic, though.02:51
koolranchI see02:51
koolranchdo you have any idea where I might find a plugin like that?02:51
travisJordan_U: now i have aniother question02:51
notWebsn9_: I'm searching for?  "udev rules pilot"?02:51
dolphin_noeland sometimes i put it once and then click again and dont give to me the same value :x it happens to 3 or 5 mp3 -+02:51
travisJordan_U: how can i load all my aliases on boot?02:51

amenadojm2k-> i dont think you require that as minimum..2.6.23+ to compile a madwifi02:53
ASULutzyjm2k: you said you needed 2.6.25 before, which is it?02:54
poseidon!rules02:54
ubottuThe people here are volunteers, your attitude should reflect that. Answers are not always available. See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrcGuidelines02:54
ASULutzyjm2k: also what version of Ubuntu are you using?02:55
herrkinI have tried quite a bit but nothing seems to work02:55
jm2ksn9_: i did upgrade to stable hardy when it came out but a few weeks ago, downloaded updates and my Atheros AR5212 card stopped working.02:55
ASULutzyjm2k: Because in Hardy the newest stable kernel is I believe 2.6.24-19, which is above what you said you neeeded (2.6.23+)02:55
jm2kASULutzy: Hardy.02:55
ASULutzyjm2k: What's in your /etc/apt/sources.list? Because I use hardy and have 2.6.24.19-generic02:56
cpk1jm2k: if you are talking about madwifis requirement for the kernel its Linux Kernel 2.4.23+ and 2.6.x series02:56

dolphin_noeltrakinas neither i lol :) that why i was asking :x :)02:58
sn9_jm2k: you need "main" and "restricted" too02:58
cdm10theacolyte: the restricted ones are the official ones from nVidia02:58
dolphin_noelno problem that ok02:58
dolphin_noel:)02:58
ASULutzyjm2k: Do you want to paste it to a pastebin? My sources.list has everything except backports enabled02:58
cdm10theacolyte: and, I recommend them... without them, you can't get accelerated graphics.02:58

herrkinI am asking everyone if somebody can help me, the ati channel seems to be dead02:58
theacolyteI've gotten it to work on 7, but this time I'm wondering about it02:58
sn9_ASULutzy: you should enable backports and disable proposed02:58
jm2kyes that too: ubuntu hardy-security main restricted02:58
ASULutzysn9_: Er, sorry I don't have proposed enabled either02:59
snarksterati drivers are for only new hardware, they dont have an archive like nVidia does02:59
ASULutzy!anyone | herrkin02:59
ubottuherrkin: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?02:59
theacolytethe restricted drivers are 167 or something like that, the latest official drivers are 17302:59
theacolytethus my concern02:59
cdm10theacolyte: it's true that they're behind, but it's up to you whether you want to deal with the hassle of the nVidia driver packaging02:59
theacolytedo the ubuntu-restricted drivers come with the control panel?02:59

ASULutzyherrkin: Have you tried using envyng? it pretty much does most of the work for you03:00
ASULutzy!envy | herrkin03:00
herrkinyes03:00
ubottuherrkin: envyng is an updated version of the *UNSUPPORTED* envy package. It is now part of the ubuntu universe repository (envyng-gtk OR envyng-qt) and has community support. As an early version, its results may vary but this should be used over the unsupported envy package.03:00
theacolytesn9_: So I would need to install the "official" drivers for the control panel?03:00
herrkinI did03:00
herrkinI used envyng03:01
herrkinI installed the fglrx from the ati website03:01

cthulinuxthat would do it03:43
drashkoolranch: it is writeable already, but not for the regular user, i wouldn't mess with those permissions just to install an mp3player that's closed source (just my opinion) .. can't you download those from emusic and play them in a regular ubuntu supported player ?03:43
Kcajdpkg: parse error, in file `/var/lib/dpkg/updates/0115' near line 1:03:43
Kcaj newline in field name `#padding'03:43
KcajThat is my error, btw when running dpkg --configure -a03:43
amenadokoolranch-> then continue on with your tutorial reading, you'd soon discovery about the permissions on directories03:44
KcajI have a feeling dpkg is permanently broken. Any suggestions?03:44
KcajI tried google for a while now, no help, even some things that helped other users03:44

jm2kIndyGunFreak: like i've addressed before, upgraded to Hardy while back, system+wireless okay, then 2 weeks ago it stopped working after doing a package update.03:44
koolranchwhy wouldn't you change the permission for that, drash?03:44
KcajYes, dpkg is broken.03:44
IndyGunFreakjm2k: really don't know to be truthful..03:45
drone_hi03:45
drone_hi03:45
amenadoKcaj-> on what grounds you make such claims?03:45
KcajI was updating and the machine completely died, now I am stuck with this... gnome has no kind of task bars, and synaptic wont start (obviously since dpkg is broken)03:45
cthulinuxwell thanks a bunch going back to windows kids03:45
KcajLook at what I just pasted, lol03:45
sn9_!hi | drone_03:45
ubottudrone_: Hi! Welcome to #ubuntu!03:45
amenadoKcaj-> did you do a man dpkg to look at the correct options?03:45
ubunubiis there an easy way add custom locations to the "places"(the one that lists all your filesystems currently mounted) menu in gnome?03:45
ubunubimenu03:45
jm2kIndyGunFreak: yea i know, its kool. i'll just keep asking.03:45
Jmanjust when i think i knew how to work ubuntu it hits me in the nuts again03:45
IndyGunFreakwell at least he's gone03:45
Kcajdpkg --configure -a   is what it tells me to run.03:45
djhashyou know i'm GLAD he's gone back to windows.. we don't like him using linux anyways.. can't even follow simple instructions.03:46

Jmanhow do i install flash plugin from website right off the bat03:46
ubottudrone_: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?03:46
amenadoKcaj-> try the --reconfigure  instead of --configure03:46
drashkoolranch: the whole concept of secure file systems is based on certain restrictions on permissions, if you decide to change those to be world writeable you open up a whole can of worms03:46
gianni_elinks03:46
IndyGunFreakdjhash: well, new users need to understand.. 1. use the package manager until you're comfortable w/ how things work, then move on to compiling, etc.03:46
koolranchdrash, is there no way for me to make the directory writeable for me and not the world?03:47
Kcaj--reconfigure -a? Or just --reconfigure?03:47
amenadoKcaj actually its dpkg-reconfigure03:47
theacolyteSo, if Emerald handles the titlebar theme, what handles the color for say, panels, menus, etc?03:47

KcajOnce done in a terminal though, shouldn't ask again03:49
drashkoolranch: sure, but i thought you needed to install a player, i'm just not comfortable with a service that wants you to install a player for something as common as mp3, there's loads of open source players for that with ubuntu support03:49

FlannelLeefmc: Ubuntu doesn't use a patch system, the repositories get new versions of packages, which you download and install04:09
ShoopufShinjinAkage: #winehq might be more suitable for your question.04:10
LeefmcFlannel: Well i consider those patches heh, but anyway, year04:10
ShinjinAkageOkay, thanks04:10

sn9_conduit4sale: some laptops need special acpi drivers for wifi to work by any method04:10
FlannelLeefmc: and those commands will do it for all packages installed on your system.  Which is easier for you than picking and choosing packages.  If you really just want a subset, you could manually pick and choose packages, but its easier to just update everything04:10

chalcedonywhere are better chat clients than pidgin that will support yahoo?04:11
LeefmcFlannel: Oh i have no problem updating everything, i just didnt know if there was a difference between an update for "rhythmbox" and an update for .. ubuntu. Though i spose perhaps the confusion here is that there are no updates for "ubuntu" since ubuntu is just a collection of things?04:11
drashBeepII: sudo apt-get remove xserver-xorg-video-openchrome04:12
IndyGunFreakchalcedony: i think there's one called gyachi, but i don't know if its better than pidgin04:12
FlannelLeefmc: Nope, kernels and other things all get updated in the same manner.  sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade will take care of it for you04:12
chalcedonyIndyGunFreak: they want me to compile my own pidgin upgrade. i think, given my abilites that would be a really bad idea.04:12

drashLeefmc: use the ffmpeg version from medibuntu repo04:22

nickrudspork969 you'd have to define a 16bit color mode in /etc/X11/xorg.conf , then restart X in that mode04:24

nikonmneptok http://paste.ubuntu.com/26366/04:30

drashLeefmc: in synaptic's prefs there's a setting you can toggle, it defaults to 'install the highest available version' i believe04:30
DeadKennedy2880beautifulsnow - sounds right to me04:30
Leefmcdrash: Also, does the medibuntu one have aac, etc? I've found a specific h264 render that works with QuickTime and i'll die if im off heh04:30
nickrudbeautifulsnow real question? If so, I doubt many people here could describe the hardware paths that do that04:30

drashLeefmc: sure, aac is supported04:30

nickrudubunty welcome to #ubuntu, if you have questions just ask04:31
beautifulsnowThe CAPS LOCK is supposed to make keys UPPER CASE, while if caps lock is supposed is OFF, the keys are supposed to be lower case... the current behavior is, OFF makes keys UPPER CASE. The Oposite.04:31

nickrudMiesco you should get some lines as soon as you enter the command.  Then when you plug in the card, you should get some more. None at all when you inserted the card04:40
Gman99999hey what's the command to access the nvidia control panel?04:40

mediaalt-ctrl-bksp really fucked my p2 up04:41
Leefmcdrash: Note that i did not install any x264 crap, but i assume thats not needed because the medibuntu is compiled with x264 right?04:41
rand0mcould someone tell me how I could set my xfce desktop environment to, just like when i log into gnome desktop environment, automount my partition volume named "S3A4004D003" in /media ?04:41
nickrudMiesco is this card plugged into an external reader?04:41
Miescowait04:41
rand0mperhaps so i could access it quickly by going to "Places", but if that's a difficult task, i'd settle for simply automounting so i can access it through file manager04:41

Miesconickrud: I dont think so04:44
drashLeefmc: mneptok i think said to scream if my suggestion didn't work .. now is the time :p04:44
kosharirand0m in gnome you are clicking onto the drive in nautilaa and it is auto mounting the drive as S3A4004D003, xfce doesnt have nautilas so you would need to edt the fstab file to do it automagicly at logon,04:44
nickrudMiesco can't find my sd card, so I'm doing some googling. A sec04:45
krsnadasaok 2 things04:45

pabixmaco, I would like it to write One file "Means" for each original file05:21

paul_5666sorry (; basically ive installed vmware server using a rpm due to my inexperience with ubuntu. it was very large being nearly 500mb, and thus i was lazy and just tried to use alien to convert it to a deb file. the install broke halfway and now i can't install any packages as it seems the update manager has stuffed up. ive posted on the forum here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=85478205:22

sn9_jm2k: don't do that05:28

arvind_khadribullgard4, the command must be used with sudo i guess05:28
jm2ktritium: when i did "make" on madwifi it kept saying kernelpath incorrect.05:28
nickrudbullgard4 it's a command, locate su-to-root05:28

ubottuJax: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?05:40
alraune_2:looks like a bad filesystem, when do you get these errors? bootup?05:40
arvind_khadripaul_5666, sudo dpkg --purge vmware-server && dpkg -i vmware-server05:40
krsnadasasn9_: yea i did but does it just automatically use that firmware ?05:41
_2alraune just before dvdrip crashes05:41
krsnadasasn9_: or is there some kind of command i have to use ?05:41
nickrudarvind_khadri dpkg -r05:41
sn9_krsnadasa: should05:41
SoulwarpShak-: you may want to read the guide a bit further for the trouble shooting05:41
krsnadasasn9_: automatically ?05:41
sn9_yes05:41
arvind_khadrinickrud, aah thats the way we purge using dpkg right??05:41
SoulwarpShak-: there is a file you must edit if you want to enable hardware acceleration05:41
mikemorrsn9_: woot! I unplugged my USB stuff and it booted this time!05:42
mikemorr:)05:42
arvind_khadrinickrud, i had read somewhere that purge removes all the config files too...and that was the syntax05:42
JaxDoes anyone/anybody know how to fix a problem i'm having........I'm trying to install ubuntu in a 2nd partion on my pc (with Xp on the other) and when i try to install it using the GUI it loads up to were i see the background screen and the window for the install info, and some weird graphic corruption or something in it to the left side, what do i need to do?05:42
nickrudarvind_khadri heh. had to go back to the man page, you're right that dpkg --purge is correct syntax05:42
paul_5666arvind_khadri: it wont purge but its trying to install now05:43
sn9_Jax: laptop or desktop?05:43
solanyone familiar with lm-sensors?05:43
paul_5666arvind_khadri: and install just failed05:43

sn9_Jax: which video card?05:43
Jaxnvidia 7800 GT05:43
Shak-Soulwarp: I suppose you're referring to xorg.conf? I've edited to match the correct settings, but what I think i'm missing is nvidia-glx-new for my new kernel05:44
krsnadasasn9_: thanks05:44
arvind_khadripaul_5666, wtf ...05:44
sn9_tritium: ^^^05:44
LogicalDashJax: one solution would be to use the alternate install disc, which lets you do the whole install in text mode05:44
nickrudpaul_5666 put a copy of /var/lib/dpkg/archive/vmware.postrm  on the pastebin05:44
* arvind_khadri sorry for foul language05:44
krsnadasaany one have a idea why the burn effect is glitching with a geforce 9300 ?05:44
paul_5666nickrud: ok05:45
Jaxugh.... how do i use txt mode?...... i've never used linux at all before05:45
nickrudpaul_5666 sorry, the path was  /var/lib/dpkg/info/vmware.postrm05:45
tritiumarvind_khadri: thanks05:45
LogicalDashJax: Well, there are still menus and everything, you just have to use your arrow keys to navigate them05:45
sn9_Jax: have you tried "safe graphics mode" ?05:45
paul_5666nickrud: rgr05:45
khinoh hey. wtf is wrong with the time on my computer. i just upgraded to hardy and thought this problem would go away, but my time is perpetually 4 hours behind when it is supposed to be when i boot up. if i reset this and then reboot, it returns to being 4 hours behind. this is ever so vexatious!05:45
Jaxoh no i haven't........ would that fix it do you thinkk?05:45
arvind_khadrinickrud, you handle it ... me out for breakfast :D will be back soon.... need to see how it has to be debugged :D05:46
sn9_Jax: one way to find out ...05:46
LogicalDashkhin: is your time applet set to update from an internet time server?05:46
solds1621 temp sensor doesn't create sysfs dirs when used via radeonfb, anyone have a clue05:46
khinLogicalDash, no.05:46
nickrudarvind_khadri I'm gonna look at that script, but I'm not hopeful that I'll be useful05:46
Jaxok.... now i need to leave and restart my pc to try it..........05:46
Jaxif i'm not back it worked!05:46

paul_5666yea i mentioned it at the beginning didnt i?05:48
chalcedonysn9_: i downloaded the pidgin files .. they are there.. but i'm still having problems that shouldnt happen05:48
SoulwarpShak-: did you download the binary driver nvidia-glx?05:48
arvind_khadrinickrud, he had mentioned :D05:48
nickrudarvind_khadri missed that05:49
khinsn9_, my timezone is set to what it is supposed to be and this happens nevertheless05:49

BertoHi - I just put a misspelled word into my firefox dictionary.  It's not in /firefox/g8u6rm76.default/persdict.dat  -- where might it have been entered?05:49
paul_5666nickrud: i relised i downlaoded a big RPM and was unfortunately too lazy to download the tar file as its so big05:49
nickrudpaul_5666 ok, it looks like that just removes some dirs, but let me read it over some05:49
sn9_chalcedony: well, you shoudn't need to install it that way, anyway05:49
chalcedonyhttp://paste.ubuntu.com/26375/ first part of the problem05:49
Shak-Soulwarp: yes its there, remember this was all was working until I updated my kernel from 2.6.24 to 2.6.2505:49
SoulwarpShak-: i would reboot the computer then05:50
chalcedonysn9_: there is some bug in the pidgin in the repository they said to compile it05:50
SoulwarpShak-: to reload the system05:50

sn9_Shak-: why did you upgrade your kernel?05:57
osmosisnoneall: Just put it where no one would look for it.05:58
nickrudnoneall change the name from   folder to  .folder  (the period makes it a hidden file, except for when you say show hidden files05:58
arvind_khadrinoneall, if you place (.) before the name it becomes but then its hard to delete if you want to05:58
_2hard to delete ?05:59
_2rm .blah05:59
noneallThanks!05:59
arvind_khadrinoneall, the best way is to make the folder usable only by you..remove all permissions for other... it should be dwrx------05:59
sn9_arvind_khadri: it becomes hard to delete if it starts with - not .06:00
paul_5666nickrud: ive added that line and tired the dpkg -r command but i got an error06:00
_2sn9_   rm '-blah'06:00

nickrudpaul_5666 ah, progress.  Now,   sudo dpkg -r --force-reinstreq vmware-server06:03

freakabcdhi all06:03

nickrudpaul_5666   one dash, all one word, no space between force and - and reinstreq06:04

paul_5666nickrud: righto06:04

Flannelkhin: #ubuntu-offtopic would be a better place for that06:05
paul_5666nickrud: dpkg -r --force-reinstreq vmware-server06:05
Shak-xtknight: are you using 173.14.09?06:05
nickrudpaul_5666 yes06:05
xtknightkhin, the kernel has drivers either embedded in something called "initrd" or as modules.  the kernel enumerates all devices in your computer using the PCI Configuration Space and loads appropriate drivers via a file called pcimap06:05
sn9_khin: is that a rhetorical question?06:05
freakabcdkhin, because open source drivers exist? and they can be included with the operating system?06:05
paul_5666nickrud: its saying its not a recognised force/refuse option06:05

nickrudsorry freakabcd06:09
freakabcdno worries06:09

xtknightso what all happened to the volume control06:09
geogurmikemorr i know a mikemorr wher you @06:09

zcat[1]isn't fasterfox a fork of firefox?06:10
Shoopufxtknight: I am completely unable to change my volume at all. When I slide the vertical volume sliders they jump from max-position to min-position of the slider... Also the "stereo chain" breaks and it's sluggish.06:10
xtknightzcat[1], swiftfox is.  fasterfox is a plugin for firefox06:10
xtknightShoopuf, exactly06:10
xtknightShoopuf, i press vol down and my left channel is muted06:10
xtknightcrazy thing06:10
xtknightit used to work lo06:10
zcat[1]btw my daughter now games under the nick 'iceweasel' ;)06:10

nickrudzcat[1] you should suggest she be original (although the name sounds deadly :)06:11
xtknightShoopuf, what audio card do you have?  i have one w/ cmipci module06:11
Shoopufxtknight: I first encountered the problem a year ago when first trying Ubuntu. But the problem still persists until today. Maybe we can file a bug report or something?06:11

_2nickrud so only time will fix this ?06:12
Shoopufxtknight: If you do find a bug report or want to file one please let me know I'll back you up or whatever... We should really notify them or something. I've thought of buying a cheap $15 Sound Blaster.06:13
geogurcool i thought i might know you i am in kitchener ontario and know 3 mikemorr`s06:13

xtknightShak-, i guess we will reply to tohse bugs06:14
_2nickrud thanks  looking.06:14
xtknightthey are already confirmed, anyway06:14
nickrudpaul_5666 now,  ls /var/lib/dpkg/info/vmware* , see if there's anything there06:14
xtknightShak-, i am sorry, i meant Shoopuf06:14
Shak-its funny, you gave two bugs, and I had two questions :P06:14
zcat[1]Resnick: sounds like libdvdcss2 might be missing..06:14
xtknightShak-, this driver will work with other kernels, but you need to recompile it inside thoose other kernels06:15
_2sn9 http://ubuntu.pastebin.us/?show=d1bb5234d  <<<< same error output and dvdrip crashes.   vlc cant play it...06:15
xtknightShak-, nvidia-settings comes with the NVIDIA .sh package06:15
paul_5666nickrud: yea theres stuff in here06:15
zcat[1](wild stab in dark..)06:15
Resnickzcat[1]: It's strange as it was all up and running earlier. I will give it a shot.06:15
Shak-xtknight: so basically running the NVIDIA installer sh again?06:15
sn9__2: disc is scratched or dirty06:15
leo_so we are selling ubuntu at Best buy now huh could be a good way to get it to the masses06:15
xtknightShak-, again hmmm...well nvidia-settings does not already exist?06:15
Shoopufxtknight: Should I create an account and reply that I am having the same problem?06:16
Shak-xtknight: it does if I type it from a terminal, need to figure out how to get it back in the Administration menu06:16
xtknightShoopuf, if you want.  at this point, it's clear the bugs are confirmed and us replying wont really do much06:16
nickrudpaul_5666 I think I'll suggest leaving that in place, messing with it could be a problem. Since there are no vmware-server debs available they won't come into play, and should be replaced automatically by any vmware-server deb that does appear.06:16
nikatok.............tok...............06:16
alraune_2:looks like a new format or even a special hardware to play it...  dead medium06:16
Shak-xtknight: I think a restart might fix it but I'm not too worried about it06:16
_2sn9_ ok,  but it plays ok in the dvd player connected to the teli06:16
paul_5666nickrud: ok ill try and run apt-get update or something?06:17
xtknightShak-, oh i see.. huh, well ubuntu's nvidia settings shortcut does not work anyway because it is not run in root mode06:17

_2alraune yeah new encription im thinking06:17
nickrudpaul_5666 yes, sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade06:17
zcat[1]nvidia-settings seems to be in it's own package, not part of nvidia-glx or whatever the nonfree fricers are called06:17
_2sn9_ no.06:17
zcat[1]*drivers06:17
xtknightzcat[1], that is true for the restricted drivers.  for the .sh off nvidia.com, nvidia-settings is installed06:17

xtknightJax, inkscape for a Vector/illustrator-like application.  it is great.06:25
xtknightJax, sudo apt-get install inkscape06:25
Jaxsudo apt?06:25
xtknightJax, that's a command you type in the Terminal, accessible via Applications->Accessories->Terminal06:25
xtknightsudo apt-get is a tool that allows you to manage applications installed or not installed on your computer06:25
xtknightyou can install software from an online database, or manage apps you have installed from that same database06:26
sn9_xzedn2: i wrote significant chunks of that wiki page at one point06:26
Shadycool xtknight my problem is that i tried installing ubuntu but when it gets to the part of partitioning the drive, it is seeing my separate 250gb drives instead of the RAID array06:26
Jaxoh..........noob question......what other programs can i get using that?06:26
xtknightShady, oh are you using a RAID chipset instead of Software raid?06:26
alraune_2 :(lol  so noboby can acces your tv station, hehehe)  seems like some artists don't wanna be heared until you buy a whole landscape,  for now ( will sleep soon), want some good tv-sites ??06:26
Shadyyes06:26
xtknightShady, ok i might suggest sticking with software raid.  it'll be a lot easier to manage06:27
Shoopuf_brb_coffJax: Tons of stuff... There's probably a better way to see the list, but I go to "System Menu > Administration Menu > Synaptic Package Manager" to view a lost of the available downloads.06:27
xtknightShady,  contrary to belief, the software raid will be as fast because most on-board RAID chipsets still use the CPU anyway.06:27
sn9_Shady: also, software raid is more efficient06:27
_2alraune ?06:27
_2must be something lost in the translation.06:28
alraune_2 :?!06:28
Shadyxtknight, ok i even tried to use Partition Manager to break it up but it never actually made the partition, it just did nothing06:28
xtknightShady, you will have to dissociate the drives from your RAID controller or install them as JBOD ("Just A Bunch Of Disks"(nonraid) to the controller)06:28
sn9__2: did you read the rest of that dvd thread?06:28
Shadysn9_, i have never used a software RAID, so not sure what to think about it lol06:29
_2sn9_ i didn't read every word,   but i read most of it.06:29
xtknightsoftware raid5 has successfully saved my data in a drive failure over the past week :)06:29
YuriQis there a way to index all the documentation installed under /usr/share/doc to be searchable?06:29
_2sn9_ says there is a patch out.06:29
sn9__2: yep06:29
_2sn9_  yeah i got that.06:30
xtknightYuriQ, try apropos or man -k06:30
Shadyxtknight, so basically if i want to use my RAID setup, I still have to lose everything and reinstall OS's?06:30
xtknightShady, you can not use windows on a linux software raid06:30
YuriQno, I mean things like the ruby and python documentation06:30
xtknightShady, it will have to be on a separate 'drive'06:30
YuriQ/usr/share/doc/python25/html06:31
xtknightYuriQ, these aren't in apropos?06:31
Shoopuf_brb_coffShady: I find that partitioning from the Partition Manager stinks... I usually use a System Restore CD and use the Partition Manager from there.... http://sourceforge.net/projects/systemrescuecd/06:31
sn9_Shady: you can also raid only part of the drive, if you want06:31
alraune_2 :thank you for pushing my education (no jerk, too) n806:31
YuriQwell, the source is in HTML06:31
xtknightShady, you need the Alternate CD to use Software raid06:31
FAJALOUshady:  gparted works wonders too.06:31
xtknightYuriQ, ohh i see06:31
YuriQI am not sure apropos indexes html06:31
xtknightno, it doesn't.  my mistake06:32
ifireballYuriQ: there are quite a few command line text search engines you can install, run a search for "search" in synaptic...06:32
xtknightYuriQ, i would assume though that python has an online, searchable Help06:32

YuriQso basically, looking for a desktop search engine, but something better than trackerd06:33
xtknightor apt-cache search regex_expression06:33
FAJALOUYuriQ: Beagle?06:33
YuriQseparate problem, but seems my trackerd is permanently busted06:33
ifireballYuriQ: you can also try indexing the files with Tracker06:33
FAJALOUifireball: i think it is broken for YuriQ06:33
FAJALOUYuriQ:  you could try removing the package and reinstalling it.06:34
Shadyxtknight (and others helping =), I am already using XP on a RAID0 setup, AM I correct in interpreting this all to mean that in order to achieve dual boot I will have to start over and reinstall the OS's?06:34
xtknightShady, that depends if your RAID0 has already spanned the entirety of any disk space you have left.06:34
ifireballFAJALOU: yeah, seen that only after posting06:34
sn9_forget the dual-boot, and put win and lin on separate computers06:35
FAJALOUifireball: all good ;)06:35
sn9_Shady: ^^^06:35
xtknightsn9_, oh why do you suggest this?  bad experience with dualboot?06:35
Shadyxtknight, I doubt that because i have 500GB and barley a quarter of it used06:35
sn9_xtknight: it's not practical in the given case06:36
FAJALOUshady;  not sure about RAID, but i am dualbooting fine.06:36
xtknightShady, with the alternate disc then you can choose to create two partitions on each disk, and flag these as RAID.  you then enter the RAID (mdadm) Configuration06:36
M_Cheevyxtknight: my current desktop installation has 4 boot options it's not a probem06:36
ifireballYuriQ: you can try this: http://searchmonkey.sourceforge.net/index.php/Main_Page packages seems to be in the repos06:36
Jaxhey what would you suggest for a person who wants to start programming/hacking (not cracking)06:36
M_Cheevyare you trying to set up a multi boot installation on a software RAID0 setup?06:36
ifireballJax: learn python.06:36
xtknightShady, you need to make sure your current raid0 partition is not allocated to the whole disk06:36
sn9_Jax: write a Hello World06:37
FAJALOUJax:  and C++ and java06:37
M_Cheevyxtknight: not 100% true06:37
Shadyxtknight, I did allocate the entire disk for the RAID06:37
M_CheevyShady: still not a problem.06:37

JaxOk python and java......i know html already any good apps or sites for help with python and java? python first i'd think06:37
M_CheevyShady: there is a very good HOWTO on the ubuntu wiki on "FakeRaid" setup06:37
Shoopufgalshawna: #winehq can probably be more helpful06:37
xtknight!fakeraid  | Shady06:38
ubottuShady: Tips and tricks for RAID and LVM can be found on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RaidConfigurationHowto and http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO - For software RAID, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto06:38
geogurat work we have a few os`s but linux gets the tough jobs and windows is always being fixed? go figure so why would you want this os at home?06:38
galshawnaShoopuf, probably would if people actually talked on that channel.06:38
sn9_galshawna: change wine's sound output module06:38
galshawnasn9_, how to do that?06:38
pist0l-fishhi there, how can i access the ubuntu device manager06:38
M_CheevyShady: the FakeRaidHowTo is the kicker06:38
xtknightShady, basically, your RAID controller is called 'fakeraid'06:38
sn9_galshawna: wineconfig06:38
xtknightShady, so in a way if you can get ubuntu to recognize your raid, you can resize down your windows paritions and install linux on the same raid controller06:38
galshawnasn9_, I'll play around with it and try to change the sound settings to see what works.06:38
galshawnasn9_, I'll be back if nothing works.06:39
Shadyxtknight, and M_Cheevy; ty guys i will look into that for a while =)06:39
xtknightlooks a bit involved tho i have never done it06:39
M_CheevyShady: it's what I used for my install, it's not that tough06:39
xtknightstart into the linux world with a bang :)06:39
Jaxifireball: do you know a good site/book/app for learning python?06:40
_2oh crap.    would the fact that it's an i386 libdvdread package being used by an i686 kernel have any affect nickrud ?06:40
xtknight_2, i386 packages will work on i686 kernels06:40
M_CheevyShady: the kicker is, use the live cd, use synaptic to get 'dmraid', use the installer, just be VERY careful when you're setting up your partitions, read that part VERY carefully, then the only other issue is setting up Grub, and that's not that bad either06:40
nickrud_2 no i386 is a subset of i68606:40
xtknight i686 is i386 with some extensions but compatible all the way06:40
Shadyxtknight and M_Cheevy, would you suggest that I dissolve the RAID and just use the 2 disks seperately, partitioning one for both file systems and partitioning the other for their respectives storages?06:40
_2nickrud i'm on dapper.06:40
nolrozIm Drunk!06:41
sn9__2: in ubuntu, i386 just means 32bit -- it won't actually run on a 38606:41
nolrozand I still love root!06:41
xtknightlol06:41
nickrud_2 shouldn't make a diff06:41
M_CheevyShady: no need to get rid of the RAID, it's not that hard to get Hardy to install on a fakeraid setup06:41
ifireballJax: http://www.python.org/06:41
Shak-xtknight: ok just discovered a new problem on this new kernel, my sound devices are no longer detected, did you have this issue too?06:41
xtknightShak-, yeah sadly06:41
xtknightShak-, but i got around it06:41
_2nickrud ok.  just noticed that the arch type differed...   didn't want to cause a conflict there.06:41
Shak-ah, packages on synaptic?06:41
xtknightShak-, i had to compile ALSA support again.  so yup that means going 'make xconfig' and selecting all the alsa stuff, and then 'make' in the kernel tree and 'sudo make modules_install'06:42
nickrud_2 sn9_ actually had the truest answer, anyway :)06:42
xtknightShak-, i tried alsa off of alsaproject but it wouldnt even compile06:42
ShadyM_Cheevy: any idea why the commercial product Partition Manager had no effect on partitioning the setup?06:42
Jaxifireball: thanks does that site have a irc channel for help?06:43
xtknightubuntu's GUI installer has no support for raid of any kind06:43
Shak-xtknight: whoa do you mean I have to recompile the kernel?06:43
xtknightShak-, you have to recompile a portion of it.06:43
xtknightand you can rebuild the deb package06:43
xtknightyou're basically adding a little patch to it06:43
Shak-hmm06:43
TetRaveXdoes any1 knows asterisk?06:43
xtknighti was able to do this successfully06:43
xtknight!info asterisk06:43
ubottuasterisk (source: asterisk): Open Source Private Branch Exchange (PBX). In component universe, is optional. Version 1:1.4.17~dfsg-2ubuntu1 (hardy), package size 2263 kB, installed size 5888 kB06:43
xtknightnot me hehe06:43
M_CheevyShady: yeah, fakeraid requires a driver for software to see the raid array as anything but separate disks.  Partition Manager, Acronis, Paragon, etc, all boot from CD or from temp partitions, and rarely include any special drivers06:44
M_Cheevyxtknight: yes, you're right, but if you install dmraid, and run that, you can use the installer as long as you manually setup Grub, and be VERY careful with the partition editor06:45
Shak-xtknight: hmm I'm gonna need step by steps for this :/ 'make xconfig' where do I do that?06:45
xtknightShak-, ok how did you recompile your kernel originally?06:45
=== Kwitschibo_ is now known as Kwitschibo
xtknightShak-, or, why?06:45
xtknightno offense there may be an alternative06:45
sn9_xtknight: hardware driver06:46

bullgard4[GNOME] What is the name of the small window which appears in the middle of the screen if you press Alt+Tab and do not use Compiz?06:46
xtknightShak-, did you try compat-wireless-2.6?  this has support for many wireless devices without the need to recompile the kernel06:46
M_Cheevybullgard: task switcher?06:46
xtknightShak-, also what wireless card?06:46
sn9_xtknight: iwlwifi06:47
FAJALOUShak-: why not just use ndiswraper?06:47

Horky_Chenhow to open ports in Ubuntu06:47
xtknightHorky_Chen, ubuntu by default has all ports open06:47

sn9_xtknight: that's a mean thing to say06:48
xtknight:)06:48
Shak-xtknight: I tried compat-wireless-2.6, the thing is this needs alot of kernel-specific patches whch is why I compiled 2.6.25, but even if there is an alternative I might as well plough through here and learn something new06:48
Horky_Chenbut XChat says my 6666 port is closed06:48
[Iggy]that's because port 6666 is evil06:48
xtknighti should say, all ports unblocked06:48

Shak-xtknight: yup06:49
xtknightShak-, alright.  go in there, and do "sudo -s"06:49
sn9_[Iggy]: that'd an extra 606:49
Shak-k06:50
xtknightShak-, compat-wireless-2.6 worked right off for me with 2.6.24(however i wanted ath5k, maybe yours doesnt work)06:50

FAJALOUHorky_Chen: I am on EFNet through efnet.demon.co.uk06:52
_2Horky_Chen you only join the channels you want on irc    any server.06:52
Horky_Chensn9_, I will try. But can I open the port direct?06:52
xtknightclient ports need not be opened06:52
Shak-xtknight: yup, I ran make xconfig, select ALSA stuff now?06:52
sn9_Horky_Chen: with efnet, you just have to keep trying until you find a server that works06:52
xtknighter, 'unblocked'06:52
Horky_ChenOK06:53
esacsn9_: appreciate the advice, but fewer processes mean nothing. i could have 1000 processes sitting in a sleep loop, what matters is cpu utilization which is ~15%, and windows plays flash videos fine fullscreen at 50% cpu06:53
xtknightShak-, yea make sure you know which driver your device uses06:53
esacxtknight: same here, other videos are fine, just flash. i was thinking of checking out flash10 beta to see if it improves06:53

ferricperhaps its not botting up correctly...06:59
xtknightferric, i am not sure if it helps, but what wireless card does it have?06:59
ferricer, booting up06:59
Shak-00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02)06:59
ferricxtknight: an atheros chipset, that works for sure. since it worked earlier.06:59
mistformShak-, or you could type "asoundconf list"06:59
dyfhello07:00
ferricFlannel: btw, i've sshd' in before, which means openssh-server is installed, yes?07:00
xtknightferric, ok so ath0 or wlan0 or something.  well  essentially you can do "sudo iwconfig ath0 essid net_name" and then "sudo dhclient ath0" to get wireless network in the TTY consol.e07:00
mistformherro, dyf07:00
xtknightfirst sudo cmd, of course, will require a pw ;)07:00
Shak-how do you folks memorize the names of all these settings binaries :p07:00
ferrichah07:00
xtknightShak-, constant frustration with them07:00
xtknighthehe07:00
ferricxtknight: good idea, let me go find that keyboard07:00
mistformShak-, yes. I actually just barely learned this stuff yesterday :)07:00
xtknightShak-, ok maybe you use hd audio?  you might want to check the alsa project site's Sound Cards list07:01
xtknightfor the modulen ame07:01
mistformShak-, what came up when you typed "asoundconf list"07:01
xtknighti think he is in a kernel without alsa currently07:01
Shak-yeah, nothign came up07:01
mistformwhat did it say? it didn't list anything?07:02
tyler_i got banned07:02
tyler_[24.170.49.156 was my ip07:02
ferricheh ok, i don't think i'm even getting a console, i just tried rebooting, and it didn't work07:02
mistformShak-, nothing like "Names of available sound cards:"07:02
ferricif i physically plug an ethernet cable in to the mac and the other end to the ubuntu box, is it going to autodetect dhcp?07:03
xtknightShak-, i think you use "snd-hda-intel".  find hda intel driver in the 'make xconfig' and enable it07:03
Shak-mistform: nothing, it just went to the next terminal line07:03
mistformwth07:03
xtknightferric, you have to set static ips for crossover connections AFAIK07:03
xtknightmistform, he has no ALSA module07:03
[Iggy]you may also need a crossover cable07:03
xtknightthat is true07:03
mistformxtknight, get him to install it lol07:04
xtknightand if your driver can automatically remap pins, good luck07:04
xtknight;P07:04
xtknightmistform, yup trying he recompiled 2.6.2507:04
ferricxtknight: ah.  so it needs ifconfig on the linux box.07:04
ferricok, i guess i better get a display then.07:04
xtknightferric, "sudo ifconfig ifname ip 192.168.x.x"07:04
=== theRealBall is now known as theRealAway
xtknightferric, does your mac have an external display or is it builtin07:04
ferricxtknight: right, but i don't even know if i'm at the linux console or stuck in some fsck looop :)07:05
xtknightthat's true07:05
ferricxtknight: it's a laptop07:05
sn9_ferric: hahahaha07:05
xtknightlol07:05
ferricsn9_: indeed.07:05
mistformferret, User Error07:05
mistformferric, User Error07:05
xtknightferric, if the video card has a VIVO port, you can connect it up to the tv07:05
Shak-xtknight: ok, I enabled Intel HD Audio07:05
mistformyeah, i forgot how many nicks are in this chan07:05
ferricxtknight: oy vey.  that is a good idea.07:05
ferrici do have a mini-dvi cable07:05
Shak-xtknight: should I check aggresive power saving there too? :p07:05
ferriclemme check07:06
xtknightShak-, probably not07:06
mistformthere are 6 nicks that come up with "sha-Tab"07:06
xtknightwell you need a mini-DIN07:06
xtknightif it's out of the vivo video card07:06
xtknightTTYs will show on tvout, GNOME will not, by default, AFAIK07:06
xtknightbecause tty is framebuffer07:06
Shak-xtknight: alrighty, we all done in xconfig?07:07
xtknightShak-, save/exit it.  before you "make" let's check the kernel configuration.  type grep CONFIG_SND.*y .config07:07
owen1i installed git and git-core but I get this: "the filemanager with GNU Interactive Tools, is now called gitfm."07:08
xtknightShak-,  sorry i messed that up.  grep CONFIG_SND.* .config07:08
xtknightShak-, and see if what you need looks enabled.  you need HDA_INTEL and probably the HDA_CODEC things.  they should be =m(module) or =y(initrd).  and CONFIG_SND needs enabled07:09
mistformlol, what does that command do, xtknight ?07:09
xtknightmistform, we are searching the kernel configuration for certain properties he needs07:09
phreckanyone know anything about how emerald works with 8.0407:09
mistformxtknight, you mean like Park Place and Broadway?07:09
Mr_Egg!ltrace07:09
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about ltrace07:09
xtknightmistform, perhaps in a next kernel, check kernelnewbies ;)07:09
xtknightmore like modules tho07:10
sn9_mistform: marvin gardens07:10
xtknightdo not pass and go, do not recompile07:10
xtknightowen1, install git-core07:10
mistformlol07:10
xtknightthis allows you to use the "git" repository program07:10
Mr_EggHi all :) I'm experiencing a printing issue with Hardy. I suspect I have a missing library. How can I best use ltrace to identify the missing library? TIA.07:11
xtknighti meant only to instal git-core actually.  i think you need to uninstall git07:11
xtknightMr_Egg, run ldd on the application07:11
Shak-xtknight: http://paste.ubuntu.com/26393/ <- looks the ones you said are all modules07:11
xtknightldd /path/to/dynamically_linked_app  will tell you any libraries it uses, and if it can find them07:11
xtknightShak-, looks great to me07:11
xtknightShak-, one moment07:12
xtknightShak-, type    "nano debian/changelog"  in /usr/src/linux-2.6.2507:12
xtknightwe will have to change your kernel revision before we make a new package07:12
mistformxtknight, I'll trade your Ubuntu Hardy for my FC907:13
mistformwhat would the utilities be?07:13
xtknightmistform,  fc9 wont boot on my puter , nor will opensuse10 :-(07:13
mon^rchwhat's the next version going to be called?07:13
xtknight!intrepid | mon^rch07:13
ubottumon^rch: Alpha Software: Intrepid Ibex is the code name for Ubuntu 8.10, due October 2008 - #ubuntu+1 for discussion | Warning lots of breaking software between now and October!07:13
Shak-xtknight: ok what should I change the revision to?07:13
mon^rchtytyt07:13
xtknightShak-, add a number to it, imo.  anything really.  like shak107:13
ansichartHello, I am having a problem changing my MAC address on my Atheros wifi card.  When I change it with ifconfig, it shows that it has changed... however my card will ignore anything addressed to the spoofed MAC address.07:14
ansichartI think my chipset restricts me from doing it, but I am trying to find a work-around solution for this.07:14
Mr_Eggxtknight: thanks07:14
xtknight Shak-  following the save of debian/changelog,  do in root mode (replace 'shak1' with your revision in debian/changelog)        " make-kpkg --initrd --revision=shak1 kernel_image kernel_headers modules_image "07:14
sn9_ansichart: you need to use wlanconfig07:14
xtknightShak-, (DONT) do make-kpkg clean07:15
mistformis there a keyboard shortcut to open terminal?07:15
zcat[1]I was thinking iwconfig07:15
lazahi07:15
xtknightyoull have to recompile the whole thing07:15
xtknightmistform, set one in gnome-keybinding-properties07:15
sn9_zcat[1]: not for madwifi07:15
mistformhow?07:15
magnetronansichart, you are doing it wrong. don't use ifconfig, use the madwifi tool to create a new VAP with the desired MAC adress07:15
xtknightmistform, or you can install nautilus-open-terminal, which allows you to right click on the desktop or folders to open the terminal07:15
xtknightmistform, system->preferences->keyboard shortcuts07:15
Shak-xtknight: hang on, about the revison, you mean add whatever to the 2.6.25.10-ultimate-10.00.Custom right?07:16
mistformarr..!07:16
xtknightShak-, hmm07:16
xtknightShak-, see in the parentheses before 'unstable'?07:16
mistformhow do I add a new one?07:16
magnetron!enter | xtknight07:16
ubottuxtknight: Please try to keep your questions/responses on one line - don't use the "Enter" key as punctuation!07:16
Shak-xtknight: yup07:16
ansichartsn9_ Hmmm, I'll look into that.07:17
xtknightShak-, you need to change whatever is in the parentheses.  that will be your new "revision" which you will add to the line i posted above when you execute it07:17
ansichartmagnetron, I'll also look into that.07:17
ansichartthanks07:17
sn9_ansichart: install the pkg madwifi-tools07:17
ansichartAlright, thank you.07:17
lazai closed the Network Administration Tool beside the clock, on the deck by accident, now i can't see the ssids07:17
lazai want it back somehow, please help07:18
xtknightShak-, when you set revision=, you will not include the parentheses () themselves07:18
Shak-xtknight: right, so basically the default revision is ?07:18
xtknightShak-, "generic" i think?07:18
Shak-*'2.6.25.10-ultimate-10.00.Custom'?07:18
mistformxtknight, how do I create a new keyboard shortcut for terminal?07:18
xtknightShak-, oh maybe it is.  can you pastebin the file?07:18
xtknightmistform, system->preferences->keyboard shortcuts, goto the "Run a terminal" entry07:19
sn9_laza: alt-f2, and type: nm-applet --sm-disable07:19
newbee617hi , when i tried to compile a software ,  after typed ./configure, an error appears: No GTKMM2.4 found . any ideas?07:19
Shak-xtknight: sure - http://paste.ubuntu.com/26394/07:19
lazasn9_: thank you!07:20
london哪位知道如何装msn07:20
