vision_then, reboot00:00
dethnullhow would you go about doing that?00:00
meoblast001how do i make usplash start when i shut my computer off?00:00
vision_how would you edit /etc/passwd00:00
dethnulloo its a file00:00
dethnullsorry i thought you ment doing passwd then some command00:00
soundraydethnull: don't edit /etc/passwd in a running system00:00
soundraydethnull: there is a command for renaming users, let me just search for it00:01
dethnullalright thanks :D00:01
Tenseican you remote desktop from vista to ubuntu?00:01
vision_Maybe you could create a new user, then change his guid and uid to the same ones as your existing user00:01
vision_Tensei:  google vnc00:01
soundraydethnull: use 'usermod -l'. Please read the hint in 'man usermod'00:01
Tenseivision, thanks.. i was hoping the remote desktop acess in ubuntu would work.. i didn't want to use a 3rd party for security reasons, but if it's all i got... which is the best VNC?00:02
soundrayTensei: yes, enable remote desktop in ubuntu via System-Preferences and use a vnc client in Windows00:02
TenseiAh ok, so I use VNC from vista to connect to ubuntu's remote desktop..00:03
dethnullso it would be usermod -l <mynewloginname>  correct?? i just want to maek sure i do this right00:03
soundrayTensei: the remote desktop feature in ubuntu uses the VNC protocol00:03
soundraydethnull: yes, but please read the man page00:03
dethnullyea i was going to00:03
vision_Tensei: all of those can be made pretty secure.  They vary according to speed and whether or not there is a windows client00:03
soundraydethnull: I mean, no00:03
vision_Tensei: I use freenx, I think it's the fastest00:03
Lunar_LampWhen will updated versions of apache and php that include bug fixes be in the repostitories?  They're in intrepid I think, but obviously I'm not deploying intrepid in a production environment.00:04
Tenseivision, does it connect directly to the ubuntu remote desktop ?00:04
soundrayTensei: I've heard that freenx is generally better for cross-platform use (nod to vision_)00:04
dethnullyou know yakuake is prob the best terminal i've used00:04
vision_Tensei: I think that remote desktop is specific to KDE or gnome.  I'm talking about installing a new vnc server00:05
TenseiI see.. boy I'm glad you guys are smart and willing to talk..00:05
vision_I don't think the KDE one has a windows client00:05
vision_but, I could be wrong00:05
soundrayLunar_Lamp: security-relevant fixes go into the regular repositories. Feature updates may be available through backports and proposed00:05
soundray!backports > Lunar_Lamp00:05
ubottuLunar_Lamp, please see my private message00:05
Lunar_Lampsoundray: yes, but for example, there is an apache 2.2.9 which includes security fixes etc, and ubuntu only has 2.2.8 at the moment in hardy (including backports) so how can I tell if the security fixes therein have been included?00:06
soundrayTensei: I'm generally smart and I shut up. Just prepared to make an exception for you.00:06
soundrayTensei: oops, that's not what I wanted to say00:06
TenseiLol soundray i gathered your meaning00:07
Tenseiok vision/soundray.  i would install freenx client for linux, set up a server, download the windows client from no machine and install it on vista, then the two should talk together?00:07
cdubyaI need to figure out why Connect to Server won't work for me all of a sudden to create an SSH connection to a machine on my LAN. I replaced our router as our old one got tapped by a storm and we are running a different IP range, but I can connect using gFTP, which was weird. I've never not been able to connect to this machine using the Connect to Server. Suggestions?00:07
soundrayLunar_Lamp: there are changelogs in /usr/share/doc/packagename/00:08
soundray!freenx > Tensei00:08

BobPenguinHello guys. Where can I find some how to for getting a windows 98 box to network with a either a ubuntu 7.10 or 8.04 box?00:09
cdubyaAhadiel, heh, yes.00:09
Tenseivision must have fallen asleep :-)00:10
cdubyaAhadiel, it worked fine before.....I can connect still using gFTP, but it's weird. The Connect to Server just will not work for some reason....00:10
soundrayBobPenguin: what kind of networking -- file sharing?00:10

Ahadielcdubya, Hrm, that's strange.00:13
Tenseisoundray: the freenx seems to only have packages up to ubuntu 7.10.. will that work on the new version?00:13
BobPenguinsoundray. Thanks. I forgot to mention the ubuntubox has not an internet connection, so I will have to use AptOnCd to install samba00:13

kristinai want to change ports.  the ubuntu community documentation says "XChat users can change this by going to XChat -> Network List, selecting Ubuntu Servers, clicking Edit, and change irc.ubuntu.com to irc.ubuntu.com/8001. You may also need to change the Freenode server in the same way from irc.freenode.net to irc.freenode.net/8001.".  But once I have selected Network List, I am unable to find anything called Ubuntu Servers to select.00:17
soundrayTensei: yes, enter 'passwd' in terminal and follow the dialog00:17

James|lappyHow do I get a podcast running on Ubuntu??00:42
* SebNaitsabes there have been viruses in Linux, but they all stayed in the lab, and they won't run on modern Linux's. yes in the future if desktop Linux becomes much more popular we may get viruses, but it would still take an idiot to get it isntalled, unlike default Windows. I mean an idiot that knows what they are doing to install the virus00:43
James|lappyI want to host one.00:43
fadsoundray i have the bootable dos cd, but i don;t know what bios files i need..00:43
James|lappyits just a matter of making a .sh file -_-00:43
legend2440what is the cli command to reconfigure gtk?   to choose screen resolutions?00:43
SebNaitsabesjameslllappy:  well there is that, but the user would still need to know how to open a .sh file right?00:43
GeekSquadSFanyone know if you can use the apt-get command on a mac to pull apt files for ubuntu machines?00:44
James|lappydouble click?00:44
James|lappyI tried that00:44
kristinasyco: ur welcome :-)00:44
th0rJames|lappy, if the user does not run that sh file as root it can't write to the OS00:44
James|lappyGeekSquad : OS X doesnt feature the apt-get thing, because it has an easy download and install work.00:44
James|lappybut you can:00:44
soundrayfad: the ones that the manufacturer of your board supplies via the Support section of their web site00:44

anandhey it worked thanx a lot, HalI445000:47
SebNaitsabessoetc_prod: I think the Gnome panels them selves cannot become 3D, because Gnome is 2D00:47
SebNaitsabessoetc_prod: same with KDE00:47
marko-_-does someone know ?00:48

anandhi everyone, can anyone send me a link from where i can download win4lin for free00:52
soundrayfad: run the freedos live CD. You will have to find a way to access the new BIOS image and the flasher program00:52
SebNaitsabesyou want to run Windows inside Linux?00:52
meoblast001i'll reboot again00:52
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about win4lin00:53
ubottuvirtualbox is a x86 !virtualizer. A !free edition is available from !Gutsy as 'virtualbox-ose'. A non-free edition is available at http://virtualbox.org for most Ubuntu releases (help in #vbox) - Setup details at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VirtualBox00:53
Commie_Jebusisnt it "free for use"00:53
SebNaitsabesfree to use, but  the PUEL is closed source so not free as in freedom as well00:54

Phoenix92xgetting pulseaudio to work correctly shouldnt vary between kubuntu 8.04 and ubuntu 8.04 right?00:55
SebNaitsabeswin4lin I was asking them if they wanted Windows in Linux and no answer00:56
SebNaitsabesthen I was trying to suggest virtualbox if that's what they were after00:56
Phoenix92xI'm on kubuntu 8.04 and having a lot of issues with pulseaudio but the folks in #kubuntu don't seem able to help, anyone in here able to help?00:56
SebNaitsabeswhat kind of issues?00:56
Phoenix92xsince 8.04 I haven't had 5.1 sound, but 2.100:57
SebNaitsabestry this00:57
SebNaitsabesin a terminal00:57
SebNaitsabeskillall pulseaudio00:57
Phoenix92xand I think I screwed up the pulse.conf file in /etc00:57
SebNaitsabesthen  well play something that makes sound00:57
Phoenix92xno process killed00:57
Phoenix92x...which is um...odd...00:57
SebNaitsabesok it's trying to say pulse isn't even running then00:57
Phoenix92xseems so00:57
Phoenix92xI think I screwed up its conf file in /etc00:58
SebNaitsabessure, but if pulse isn't running00:58
Phoenix92xin /etc/pulse/daemon.conf00:58
SebNaitsabesI guess right now that won't really matter00:58
* Phoenix92x nods00:58
jramseyi just updated from 6.06 to 8.04 hardy; my display resolution is 640/480 and it was high than this before installation; monitor resolution settings only has 640/480 and 320/240. what happened to the higher resolutions??00:58
soundraySebNaitsabes: keep it all on one line if you can please00:58
threedee how to find the version(s) of opengl installed?00:58
SebNaitsabeshowever I assume pulse can be sudo apt-get purge removed and  you can check .home  for a pulse folder get rid of that if there is one. and re install pulseaudio00:58
SebNaitsabesI assume that can be done00:59
soundrayjramsey: I don't know, but you can probably fix it by setting up your monitor via 'gksudo displayconfig-gtk'00:59
Phoenix92xone moment00:59
Phoenix92xcommand is apt-get purge foo bar ?00:59
jramseysoundray: will try now txs00:59
SebNaitsabesksudeo or smoething I think on KDE acstauley00:59
SebNaitsabesrather than sudo00:59
SebNaitsabesksudo or sudo whatever it is and then apt-get purge  whatever it's called01:00
SebNaitsabesoh yeah you could open up your package manager01:00
SebNaitsabesand do it the graphical way01:00
Phoenix92xand then apt-get install pulseaudio?01:01
SebNaitsabesyes I think so01:01
jramseysoundray: still only the two smaller resolution options01:01
SebNaitsabesmake sure it's gone first including any .pulse01:01
SebNaitsabesanything in your home folder for it01:01
Phoenix92xyep, erased that01:02
SebNaitsabesso  yeah it should remove with config files01:02
soundrayjramsey: restart X to enable the changes you made in displayconfig-gtk01:02
Phoenix92xk, pulseaudio is reinstalled now01:02
SebNaitsabesthen don't just rei nstall music,  since your speakers may now be using alsa or oss and so work a load better01:02
GeekSquadSFwhats the best "windows media player" type deal on an ubuntu box running gnome?01:02
SebNaitsabesyou can acstaully have WMP10 in Wine01:03
SebNaitsabesif you really want it01:03
jramseysoundray: i only see the two lower resolutions when i run displayconfig-gtk; how do i restart x?01:03
SebNaitsabessame with winamp01:03
Phoenix92xdont reinstall music? confused01:03
Phoenix92xdont reinstall pulseaudio?01:03
LukeI've removed some partitions from software mdadm raid. Now I only have one raid array which is /dev/md3 but md2 and 1 still show up in /dev. ANyone know how to fix this?01:03
SebNaitsabesno  I meant don't  just re install puleaudio since then it should be using alsa or whaetver, and your speakers may work better01:03
Phoenix92xbecause ya Id prefer to just use alsa unless there's some big advantage01:03
meoblast001KDB9000: on shutdown DHCPD3 fails to shutdown due to DansGuardian... a program i thought i uninstalled01:03
SebNaitsabesnope pulseaudio causes a load of problems for people  in this release01:03
Phoenix92xone sec01:04
soundrayjramsey: did you choose an appropriate model from the dialog?01:04
FloodBot2Phoenix92x: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.01:04
kdb424Back. Just wanted to say that I got ubuntu installed and booting fine on my macbook pro01:04
Swishluke, what's in your /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf?01:04
Swish(which ARRAY statements)01:04
LukeSwish: the ones I dont want are commented out01:04
Phoenix92xSebNaitsabes, after I remove the files again would you mind helping me make sure alsa is running properly with the correct amount of channels?01:04
jramseysoundray: i left it plug-n-play01:04
whileimhereI need to kill the firfox process but I cannot see it in the list that top provides. How can I determine the process number of any given process?01:04
Swishso you're on the right track ;)01:05
yoyonedwhileimhere: ps aux|grep firefox01:05
LukeSwish: i've been working on this a long time =D01:05
KDB9000meoblast001: that could cause the problem. if there is a fail to shutdown it displays it and generally stays in that mode till down01:05
SebNaitsabesPhoenix92x: not entirely sure how to do that. and channels hummmm meaning?  however if I remember correctly well I could look :d ,but I can't be bothered. for the sound control there is settiongs for alsa and what not there as well01:05
soundrayjramsey: well, don't. Go to the dialog and select your monitor make and model if it's there, or a generic model that matches your screen's capabilities01:05
SwishLuke, so you've tried rebooting and all that too?01:05
SebNaitsabesPhoenix92:  for volume control01:05
LukeSwish: most def =)01:05
Swishand/or rmmod md, and stopping all the mdadm devices..01:05
whileimherethanks! yoyoned01:05
Swishand it still picks it up eh.01:05
meoblast001KDB9000: how do i uninstall DHCPD3?01:06
Phoenix92xchannels meaning 2.1, 5.1 etc01:06
SebNaitsabesPhoenix92:  I am talking Gnome/Ubuntu here so will be a bit differnet in Kubuntu01:06

Wistesois the problem with recording when upgrading from gutsy to hardy going to be fixed any time soon? is a cause even known?01:06
soundraywhileimhere: try 'killall firefox', or find out the process id with 'ps aux | grep firefox'01:06
KDB9000meoblast001: DHCPD3, i think you need that for DHCP client01:06
Swishluke, so have you tried renaming the mdadm.conf to something else?01:06
LukeSwish: i still have one md device I want to keep01:06
Swish(and then rebooting)01:06
Swishnothing should come up.01:06
LukeSwish: nope. there's only one array line in there01:06
SebNaitsabesWisteso: what problem with recording? recording what?01:06
Swishif something does, you have to find out how it's doing that.01:06
yoyonedwhileimhere: also try skill firefox-bin01:06
meoblast001KDB9000: whats DHCP? ive heard that word before and used to know what it meant O_o01:06
Flavio23is there a channel related to network security issues, firewalls etc?01:07
SebNaitsabesFlavio23: nope, but what do you want to know?01:07
Swishwell, rename the file and reboot or what.  if your phantom second md device still shows up, you've got bigger issues ;)01:07
dbboltoni'm using hardy, have a radeon ati 9600, can't get x to start01:07
Swishif it doesn't, you know that mdadm is finding it somehow based on the .conf.01:07
SebNaitsabesdbbolton: your in a command line?01:07
Flavio23this: a question for my communication networks exam ;)01:07
dbboltonSebNaitabes yes01:07
legend2440!ati > me01:07
ubottulegend2440, please see my private message01:07
SebNaitsabesFlavio23:  well there is a #networking01:07
WistesoSebNaitsabes - there's a widespread problem with alsa, oss, and really any sound server and being able to record audio from a large number of audio chipsets.01:07
whileimhereyoyoned the first one worked fine! :) Thank you. I have it noted on my Tomboy notes now.01:07
LukeSwish: many people remove their .conf and still have it detect stuff =/ I've even cleared the superblocks though01:07
dbboltonusing irssi atm01:07
KDB9000meoblast001: Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. It is the system that is in just about every router and is what gives your computer an IP address so you can get to the internet01:08
Flavio23i'll try taht thanks01:08
SwishLuke, google google? :)01:08
meoblast001KDB9000: how do i get it to not care about dansguardian?01:08
unopKDB9000, not every router is a DHCP server ..01:08
LukeSwish: yes I know that from google01:08
SebNaitsabesWisteso: well to be honest there is no real advantage it seems to upgrade from Gutsy to Hardy, plus then if you upgrade, you like many other people including myself may get pulseaudio issues01:08
dbboltoni had almost the exact same problem in debian lenny01:08
=== wobblywu is now known as qobblyqu
KDB9000unop: that is why i said just about every router01:08
unopKDB9000, my bad .. err, i should have read .. :)01:08
dbboltonit's like x can't find my card, but lspci lists it01:08
KDB9000unop: np01:08
LukeSwish: perhaps it's because the conf still calls it md3 and it can only list them incrementally so it makes the first two devices blank01:09
yoyoneddbbolton: are you getting any arror messages01:09
KDB9000meoblast001: do you remember what it said when it came to that, and how do you know it is related to dansguariden?01:09
whileimhereOkay I have a tough one. Is there a way when installing via a metapackage like ubuntu-desktop to specify packages you dont want?01:09
SwishLuke, that's not a bad guess.01:09
dbboltonyoyoned "screens found but none with useable config."01:09
Swishtry setting it as md0 :)01:09
meoblast001KDB9000: first thing.... and it said underneath it something about dansguardian but scrolled off too fast01:10
SebNaitsabesWisteso: Hardy Heron = puleaudio sound problems for many people01:10
LukeSwish: i'll try renaming it. thanks for letting me bounce ideas off you =)01:10
Swishyou're welcome!01:10
dbboltoni tried mv'ing my xorg.conf, but then when i start x my monitor says no input signal01:10
WistesoSebNaitsabes, the odd thing is that everything else works fine. Sound output is fine with almost every sound server. OSS, ALSA, ESD, Pulse all work as far as output, and my microphone worked for sure in gutsy...  so I'm just surprised that such an isolated problem has no progress yet, or does it?01:10
Swishsounds like you've pretty much tried everything else already ;)01:10
jramseysoundray: ok that worked; txs for ur help01:10
yoyoneddbbolton: try renaming /etc/X11/xorg.conf and try again01:10
soundrayjramsey: you're welcome01:10
SebNaitsabesWisteso:  maybe it's a known bug01:10
dbboltonyoyoned already tried that01:11
meoblast001KDB9000: im gonna restart01:11
dbboltonyoyoned but my monitor said "no input signal"01:11
WistesoSebNaitsabes, it is. Lots of users know about it and im looking over launchpad but no developers have acknowledged it I guess01:11
yoyoneddbbolton: change the driver to vesa01:11
s3aany1 no how i can make compiz rain effects ONLY on my desktop? (cuz so far the rain is always working and it's annoying to have rain on normal windows, I just want it on top of the desktop wallpaper)01:11
SebNaitsabesWisteso: well like I said no real advantage it seems to upgrade from Gutsy to Hardy01:11
dbboltonyoyoned ok brb, need to install screen :D01:11
whileimhereWhat is the general effect  as far as slowing down a machine if you use kde apps like digikam on a GNOME desktop?01:11
yoyoneddbbolton: alt f201:12
soundraywhileimhere: it wouldn't slow it down unless you are short of RAM01:12
SebNaitsabesWisteso: maybe just skip this release and get the next?  ,but if you want this release to how about in a virtual machine?  you know about thos01:12
WistesoSebNaitsabes: no way to really downgrade though besides backing up /home/ and reinstalling. Otherwise I would. I dont have the resources for backing up all my junk.01:12
yoyonedwhileimhere: they work fine.  No problems with kde apps on gnome of vice versa01:13
SebNaitsabesWisteso: oh your on hardy now?01:13
whileimhereI only have about a gig and of that 128 is shared video.01:13
unopwhileimhere, apt-cache depends ubuntu-desktop  - gives you a list of packages that are pulled in when installing it .. you can then put them in a text file, edit the text file to your needs and have apt-get read from that text file01:13
whileimherethanks unop01:13
onthefence928i am using at leats two partition that are used to store windows stuff  so they are NTFS or FAT 32 (one of each) do i still need to defrag them if i use them under linux mostly? if so how do i defrag under linux?01:13
Nicknamethere's no one in the #networknig channel, ill just ask here: Following setup: FW with Server behind it. Does a portscanner see any difference if a) FW let's traffic on port 80 through and the service on port 80 is down or b) FW blocks traffic on port 8001:13
soundraywhileimhere: that's plenty, unless you open a lot of gnome apps01:13
glitsj16s3a: the water effect plugin in compiz doesn't support window matching (hence no fine-grained selection possibilities), at least not the version in hardy .. better check with #compiz01:13
yoyonedunop: neat trick.  how doy you get apt to read from file01:13
WistesoSebNaitsabes: yeah I went to hardy straight away after the official launch. So I'm looking for and possible fixes. There have been a few but nothing solid.01:14
whileimhereI usually have 1 - 2 open and working01:14
whileimhereNot much else01:14
SebNaitsabesWisteso: well in the mean time how about a Gutsy VM?01:14
s3aglitsj16: k, thx01:14
unopyoyoned,  apt-get install $(<textfile)  # but make sure the text file is formatted right, it must contain only packagenames01:14
WistesoSebNaitsabes: do the VMs allow direct access to hardware? in this case my audio card?01:14
SebNaitsabesWisteso: yep01:14
soundraywhileimhere: digikam will be a bit slower to open under gnome than under KDE, because it will access some shared libraries that will already be cached under KDE.01:15
WistesoSebNaitsabes: Awesome. I'll have to try that.01:15
admin_hey guys, if anyone if good with kernel updating and grub, please see if you can answer my question, thanks. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=86554501:15
SebNaitsabesWisteso: well yes it uses your hosts hardware and  has it's own hardware thing uhmmm you will see01:15
SebNaitsabesWisteso:  now the question is in your Gutsy VM do you need  USB support or not?01:15
WistesoSebNaitsabes: Thanks for that tip. I'll definitely give it a shot.01:15
WistesoSebNaitsabes: No, the headset is a standard audio jack.01:15

dbboltontried the vesa driver, same error01:16
WistesoSebNaitsabes: Great. Im familiar with it already. I have it running XP I think.01:16

WistesoSebNaitsabes: Do you know if all operating systems have direct access or does VM ubuntu use a hack to acccess the host ubuntu?01:17
soundraywhileimhere: I set it up in 4GB on my eeepc and it's creaking at the seams01:17
unopwhileimhere, depends on how much you install really, on a basic installation - 5GB suffices01:17
dbboltonyoyoned tried vesa driver, didn't work01:17
soundraywhileimhere: I did add a lot of extra software, though01:17
WistesoSebNaitsabes: I think I have an ISO or CD around somewhere. Or at worst I know where to get one.01:17
SebNaitsabesWisteso: the VM runs as if it was some sort of hardware attached or inside the computer   maybe not the best explination, but that is the general idea01:17
yoyoneddbbolton: sudo X -configure01:17
WistesoSebNaitsabes: Works for me.01:17
SebNaitsabesWisteso:  they can also have advantages for example.  XP installed on thsi computer psyically and I have no working sound since some driver I have no idea what I tryed to find one at the time01:18
SebNaitsabesWisteso:  when I put a XP VM inside Ubuntu, well it uses my host OS Ubuntu for the sound :)01:18
SebNaitsabesin this case01:18
whileimherei see that at base install of xubuntu I am already at 50% with the installation of openoffice.org01:18
WistesoSebNaitsabes: That's awesome! Alright. I'll have to hope I can get the same results with compatibility.01:18
SebNaitsabesWisteso: yep there should be an option use the host OS for sound or  emulate sound or something01:18

jmarsdenDfronius: replace with the IP address of your WIndows PC that is sharing files.  See http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/28869/ for my example.01:47
KDB9000meoblast001: what happened when you did ctrl + alt + F1?01:48
ubottunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like Freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit01:48
meoblast001KDB9000: it hides GDM and gives me a terminal to work with01:48
Dfroniusok, I did that then01:48
sotec_prodAnyone know how to keep icons from appearing on my desktop? It's annoying01:48
KDB9000meoblast001: so nothing bad happened? you got a terminal and was able to login and run commands right?01:48
unopsotec_prod, i don't mean to be funny. but you can ask your favourite search engine that very question and it will give you pointers. like this one.  http://edivad.wordpress.com/2007/03/19/gnome-hide-desktop-icons/01:49
jmarsdenDfronius: So you can ping the windows PC, but smbclient -L \\\\ shows no output at all?  Are you sure you have windows file sharing enabled on the windows PC?01:49
CoolTrainer_DougHey guys01:49
meoblast001KDB9000: yeah... but ever since usplash wont work on shutdown01:49
bloodrocksotec_prod, what icons01:49
CoolTrainer_DougI just wanted to say thanks for all your help!01:49
CoolTrainer_DougI got my wireless working and everything is great!01:49
jmarsdenDfronius: Any firewall software on the windows PC that might be preventing this?01:49
complexityAnybody here a wizard at printers? I have posted at a lot of forumns and this problem has stumped them all!01:50
sotec_prodthanks unop, I could do that, and I usually do, but what's the point of this room if not for immediate help?01:50
WhizkoSebNaitsabes: I just copied all my fonts from windows to my fonts directory and it's still not working :/01:50
Dfroniusjmarsden: no. I have 3 laptops and another PC, all running windows XP and they all share and view correctly01:50
KDB9000meoblast001: lets try something. run "sudo apt-get install sysv-rc-conf"01:50

unopsotec_prod, i'm just trying to get you to make good and effective use of your time and ours :)01:50
SebNaitsabesWhizko:  well you know about virtual machines?01:50
Tenseijmarsden: how do I undo that command?01:50
WhizkoSebNaitsabes: yep, but can they use 3d drivers nowdays?01:50
unopsotec_prod, besides, one of us has to reach out that way .. :)01:51
jmarsdenTensei: type exit and you will be back to your normal user.01:51
sotec_produnop, again, I usually do my own research, but I figured i'd see if anyone knew right off hand01:51
SebNaitsabesWhizko:  vmware has experimental 3d suppourt in one of it's softwares01:51
SebNaitsabesWhizko: there is an actsaul Wine channel here #winehq01:51
bloodrocksotec_prod, what icons are they01:51
glitsj16Whizko: perhaps you need to update the font caches --> sudo fc-cache -f -v01:51
WhizkoSebNaitsabes: yep, but they always tell me to ask on this channel01:51
meoblast001KDB9000: ok now what?01:51
sotec_prodbloodrock, all icons. any icons.01:51
jmarsdenDfronius: I'm puzzled... all PCs are on the same network subnet, no routers between them or anything like that?01:52
sotec_produnop helped me already. pretty easy solution actually.01:52
sotec_prodthanks unop01:52
KDB9000meoblast001: run "sudo sysv-rc-conf"01:52
bloodrocksotec_prod, but are they icons from a download or what01:52
unopsotec_prod, yw01:52
Dfroniusjmarsden: there's one router, in the basement. The three PCs are connected to it, and the laptops all are WiFi01:52
unopbloodrock, desktop icons .01:52
KDB9000meoblast001: once it comes up use the arrow keys to go down and find usplash and 2345 should have X's in them01:52
complexityGuess it stumps you all also....thanx for the consideration...guess I will stay in this madness01:53
WhizkoWell, I'll keep checking forums. Thanks for helping :)01:53
sotec_prodbloodrock, I got you now. No, not downloaded packages. mounted icons, etc01:53
meoblast001KDB9000: 234501:53
jmarsdenDfronius: sounds normal... so it should work... hmm.  I literally just installed samba here to check the smbclient comamnd for you, worked for me first time!01:53

meoblast001KDB9000: this program is cool01:53
jmarsdenTensei: You're welcome.01:53
Tenseiyoyoned: thanks for the help.  talk with you later.. lots of stuff to read now :-)01:53
Dfroniusjmarsden: what is the command?01:53

meoblast001KDB9000: now what01:54
fg3Is there a channel for remastersys or anyone that can assist in getting in getting the network going using this?01:54
meoblast001KDB9000: i tried using this startup manager and unchecked usplash then rechecked it01:54

I'm just a Linux end-user (I don't hack), and before I move to Ubuntu, I install software by building their source; now that I'm with Ubuntu, I install from the *.deb or grab from the repository. Say now if I have a program that's installed using aptitude, and at the same time its latest version is not available in the repository, what'll actually happen if I build and install from source? Do I have to remove the02:09

unopyclian, if you don't deinstall a package and build the same one from source and install it, the newly installed package overwrites files from the older package - something which is not recommended -- also if you are building from source, it is recommended you make a .deb file first and then install the .deb file so you can manage/uninstall the package later02:13

sotamangaall keybs in AR have dot in the numeric keypad02:16
jmarsdenDfronius: Sure, but first we need to know whether they can communicate at all.... showing up in the browser is a whole extra level of stuff to troubleshoot.02:16
zoreauduo there is one simple answer--dont touch the ubuntu drive, and reinstall windows on the other drive02:16

glitsj16simard: gparted works fine with NTFS, and it's the same as what is on the live cd under the name 'partiton editor' .. did you unmount the partiton before trying to use gparted on it ?03:01
jmarsdenzce: download the packages manually and install using dpkg -i whatever.deb ?03:02
zcejmarsden, er, is it the only way? because it will require lots of dependencies03:02
jmarsdenzce: I'm not sure... you could try making an intrepid chroot and so installing a separate somewhat virtual installation, if you prefer??03:04
hrtkhello everyone03:05
jmarsdenOr just resize some partitions and do a real Intrepid install in the spare space you make?03:05

So I tried what the wiki said about commenting out stuff in sources.list in /etc/apt/ and tried it but it didn't work. Is there another way?03:06
glitsj16zce: why not install alpha2 of intrepid on a spare partiton if you've got the HD space ? less dependency hell that way ..03:06
LuCasncan i change the "position" of a partition on a GUID table?03:06
MusliI'm pretty new to linux but howcome i dont have have a root account? :s03:06
LuCasnso i want hda5 to be hda4 for example03:06

oc80zMusli, you do chmod +x binfile ; ./binfile03:15
jmarsdenMusli: what do you want to do with the .bin file?  edit it?  run it?03:15
oc80zoh a .bin file you need to burn it or mount it03:15

DephenomBruners, well what does the helpful assistant at system > Administration > Hardware Drivers do? and no, the only time this laptop gets restarted is when I have to reinstall the drivers03:16
jmarsdenMusli: just do sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre03:16
Musliok thx m8 :)03:17
jmarsdenand use the Ubuntu version of Java -- much safer.03:17

Ahadiel!offtopic | meoblast00103:17
ubottumeoblast001: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, #ubuntu+1 supports the development version of Ubuntu and #ubuntu-offtopic is for random chatter. Welcome!03:17
meoblast001how is that offtopic03:18
jmarsdenMusli: always use a package intended for your exact Linux distro in preference to a generic .bin or similar package.  You can use synaptic to search for software that is likely to be "safe" to install.03:18
meoblast001im sick and tired of requireing support that doesnt fix my computer03:18
BrunersDephenom: i have no idea what the assistant do, as i dont have ubuntu. BUT we need to know when are the drivers rolled back to the old drivers.. Do you install them and they get removed at once or is it a given time frame before they are removed?03:18
chadddoes anyone know what drivers i should use?03:18
Musliyes i have used synaptic almost 4 every program that i have installed :)03:18

K350Hi, where's m ygnome theme saved? I want to export my theme to another machine so I've to know where they're, anyone?03:19
DephenomBruners, its a timeframe i would guess, i can always tell as when i watch a video, any format, the playback stalls if the drivers have been forgotten about03:20
BrunersDephenom: are you sure its the driver that is rolled back and not something else that is causing it?03:20
ifelseifgnome themes for your user should be in the user folder, but a hidden file03:20
jmarsdenchadd: Is any info at http://www.linuxcompatible.org/Radeon_X1650_Pro__c13525.html relevant to your issue?03:20
BrunersDephenom: and is the driver rolled back? are you sure the assistan really installed the driver for you ?03:21
swamptinchadd: did check out this forum post on Linux Questions? --> http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-hardware-18/config-trouble-with-ati-radeon-x1650-pro-512mb-610120/03:21
ghindoI'm trying to transfer files from my laptop to my server over ssh, but I can't seem to get the permissions right.  Can someone help me out?03:21
swamptinghindo: you using the scp command?03:21
chaddlooking now ty03:21
sliverchairany other instant messenger other than pidgin?03:22
DephenomBruners, yes the assistant installs it as after the hassle of uninstalling then reinstalling then rebooting the video works fine03:22
ghindoswamptin:  Yes.  Is there another command I should be using?03:22
swamptinnot that I'm aware of. :)03:22
danc3Any Ops around...?  I see the Floodbots are battling each other again....03:22
jmarsdenghindo: the -p option to scp preserves file perms, is that what you need?03:22
swamptinOne problem I usually have is forgetting simple things like th ":" at the end of your server address03:23
ifelseifK350: try looking for /home/(your user name)/.themes I think that is the folder you will want03:23
BrunersDephenom: ok, have you tried to install the driver manual from console? GUI-installers are not always 100%03:23
chaddthey both say that the proprietary driver should work03:23
ghindojmarsden: I don't think so.  Even with the -p option, I get a "Permission denied" message03:24
chaddbtw my ubuntu is installed via wubi03:24
swamptinchadd: check out the url at the top of the forum post. There's loads of info there03:24
jmarsdenghindo: Then the files at the remote end are probably not wrteable by you and you are trying to overwrite them?03:24
DephenomBruners, if i knew the commands i would try, but I always thought that Ubuntu was aimed at new Linux users03:24
jmarsdenghindo: You may need to set them 644 (and directories to 755) before doing the scp03:25
ghindojmarsden: How do I do that?03:25
jmarsdenghindo: Do you have ssh shell access to the remote server?03:25
ghindojmarsden: Yes.03:26
jmarsdenThen ssh in there and use chmod 0644 somefile, or chmod 644 * or whatever is appropriate03:26
BrunersDephenom: google install nvidia drivers linux, follow the first link, the guide there should make things work. I would have given you the URL but i cant. All OS'es have trouble with some hardware, it cant always be foolproof.03:26
jmarsdenor just delete the old files using rm03:26

Dephenomthanks Bruners ill give that a shot, at least someone in here took the time to try and help, even if i did have to ask several times over several days and being ignored03:29

ghindojmarsden: I tried the rm command and I'm still denied permission03:34
jmarsdenThen that's not your file.  Do you have root on the remote server?03:34
arvind_khadriventusignis, use the Profiles under view tab03:34
ghindojmarsden: I think so?03:35
jmarsdenghindo: This is not a ssh or scp issue at all, just a basic Unix/Linxu file permissions thing.03:35
ghindoNot entirely sure03:35
jmarsdenghindo: So become root on the remote machine and then rm that file.03:35
arvind_khadridbbolton, how do you start X??03:35
unopghindo, you need to be www-data not michael when logging on to the server to be able to write to /var/www03:35
dbbolton<arvind_khadri> i have tried slim and startx03:36
ghindounop: How do I go about doing that?03:36
arvind_khadridbbolton, well do you use GNOME or KDE03:36
dbbolton<arvind_khadri> none, it's ubuntu server03:36
dbbolton<arvind_khadri> i installed slim as a login manager03:37

ubottuBlaqlight, jmarsden: Ubuntu, like any other linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'iptables' command (see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo), or GUI applications such as Firestarter (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE).04:03

troythetechguyBlaqlight: Yes.  I had issue earlier with xterm, but some change I made along the way fixed it.  Now I just need to fix FF.04:29
ExProtagonistHey there, I'm a new user, running a LiveCD. I've got an HP dv2845se, and the only problem I'm having right now is getting my computer to pick up my wireless network... any advice?04:29
Fezzlercrdlb: I have tried to install the old driver but when I enable it with Hardware Drivers after installation, HD automatically uninstalls the old and replaces it with "new"04:29
CTD1glitsj16 ive restartant pavucontrol and the process that is continually making sounds and it still only shows pidgin04:29
simardI removed my swap partition sda4 and created another one, now it's named sda7, if I change 4 to 7 in fstab, will this do ? I am asking because of the UUID04:29
nickrudswamptin all I see happening is unused stuff (according to aptitude) being removed. I personally would let it. Not sure if that will fix your update manager issue04:29
frank999Help I can't enter my system I get a error message grub 1504:29
bazhangExProtagonist, what does lspci in terminal show the wireless chipset to be (just the one line)04:30
Fezzlercrdlb: Don't I have to use Hardware Drivers to enable the nvidia drivers once installed?04:30
Flannelsimard: UUID changes, blkid to see UUIDs.  You probably have a UUID as the functioning part in fstab, the sda4 is just a comment04:30
Shish_hey, does anyone recommend a good music player to play mp3's on ubuntu hardy?04:30
Blaqlighttroythetechguy: what is the minimum font size in FF?04:30
glitsj16CTD1: hang on, checking something .. give me a minute04:30
squarebracketShish_, my favorite is amarok04:30
swamptinnickrud: ya. doesn't though. Arragh I'll go back to poking aroud again myself. thanks04:30
bazhangShish_, minimal is audacious04:30
Shish_squarebracket: thanks04:31
crdlbFezzler: just manually install nvidia-glx. the hardware drivers manager has no way of knowing that your system cannot use nvidia-glx-new (I wouldn't be surprised if the ubuntu developers weren't aware of this new SSE requirement)04:31
FuRomIs there any way to install the .NET framework 3.0 in WINE? I can't find it via google, because of .net domains.04:31
nickrudtry running  update-manager in a terminal, it may spit out some error messages04:31
Shish_bazhang: thank you04:31
troythetechguyBlaqlight: Says "none"04:31

frank999Help I can't enter my system I get a error message grub 1504:31
Blaqlighttroythetechguy: make it 1604:31
nickrudswamptin you would have to run those commands again, without the -s . That forced a simulation, nothing was actually done.04:31
Fezzlercrdlb: okay.  brb.04:31
FuRomdazhang, what is "appdb"?04:31
bazhangExProtagonist, simply type lspci and note the wireless chipset such as atheros broadcom intel etc04:32
Blaqlighttroythetechguy: then close and reopen04:32
bazhang!appdb | FuRom04:32
ubottuFuRom: The Wine Application DB is a database of applications and help for !Windows programs that run under !WINE: http://appdb.winehq.org04:32

bazhangFuRom, also see #winehq channel04:32

FuRomah, thanks even more bazhang, I tried #wine, but #wine was empty xD04:33
frank999no, there is no windows04:33
Blaqlighttroythetechguy: did it fix your problem?04:33
bazhangfrank999, what caused this to happen04:33
glitsj16CTD1: did you choose "show: --> all streams" in pavucontrol ? you can also check if you have simultaneous output ticked in paprefs (last tab labelled as such)04:33
frank999nothing really, I installed linux mint 3 days ago04:34
frank999and have been using it as usual04:34
bazhangfrank999, this is linux mint now04:34
ExProtagonistBaz: What specifically will it be labeled as? "Network Controller"?04:34
=== coW_cUtE_19^^ is now known as cOw_cUtE_19^^
frank999it all started with the sounds04:34
ubottuThe following are some examples of Ubuntu derived distributions that we cannot provide support for due to repository and software changes, please consult their websites for more information: gNewSense (support in #gnewsense), Linux Mint (see !mintsupport), LinuxMCE (support in #linuxmce), Ubuntu Ultimate04:34
frank999and suddenly I get grub error 1504:34
bazhangExProtagonist, just not ethernet; something like that though if you want to paste to paste.ubuntu.com I will look for you04:35
bazhangfrank999, this is mint now?04:35
troythetechguyBlaqlight: It made the fonts bigger so I can read them now, but they still don't appear to render correct.  For example, the letter k is missing the part of the angled /04:35
frank999I'm sorry what do you mean?04:35
CaptainMorganhow do I read /var/log/wtmp if I can't use the utmpdump because it's not found?04:35
squarebracketfrank999, what error is error 15?04:35
glitsj16CTD1: .. but the app in question might use your sound card directly, without knowing which app it is (and i do digg you not willing to name that) i'm afraid it's hard to give any real help, hope you can get it working to your liking04:35
bazhangfrank999, are you using linux mint now?04:35
Blaqlighttroythetechguy: whats the font name?04:35
ycliannickrud, it didn't help by doing the mkdir. could it be checkinstall being stupid to look for a wrong file? chmod: changing permissions of `/usr/local/share/icons/hicolor/16x16/apps/_inst.10276_': No such file or directory04:35
frank999no, this is my lap top with Ubuntu04:35
nickrud!find utmpdump04:35

frank999the problem is in my desktop with mint04:35
benito_i cant get a vpn working04:35
benito_sudo networkmanager   does nothing for me04:36
IdleOnefrank999, Linux Mint is not a supported derivitve of Ubuntu, please seek support in #linuxmint on irc.spotchat.org04:36
nickrudyclian could be, checkinstall tries but doesn't work all the time.04:36
troythetechguyBlaqlight: Verdana04:36
squarebracketguys, the problem isn't linux mint, it's grub04:36
ycliannickrud, thanks. any other better options for making a deb?04:36
ExProtagonistBaz: I'm getting one thing labeled under "Network Controller" with "Broadcom Corporation" in it... would that be it? If not, I'll just paste it for you.04:36
bazhangfrank999, mint is not supported here; get the real deal at www.ubuntu.com and then we can talk04:36
bazhangExProtagonist, that is it04:36
dmsupermanis there a filesystem that i could use to mount pop3 as a folder?04:36
ExProtagonistNow what?04:36
bazhangExProtagonist, open synaptic and search for broadcom04:37
Blaqlighttroythetechguy: you'll just have better luck using a sans serif (explicitly) font. such as MS reference sans serif.04:37
frank999but I'm using ubuntu right now in my lap top04:37
bazhangfrank999, but the problem system is mint, correct?04:37
troythetechguyBlaqlight: Thanks.  I'll give that a try.04:37
nickrudyclian yeah, creating your own :) But, I noticed it was pidgin. Are you compiling 2.4.3 ?04:37
IdleOnefrank999, that is good. if you have any problems with ubuntu we can help04:37
frank999I just need to get my data from the hard drive04:37
geniidmsuperman: No.04:37
CTD1paprefs didnt help any glitsj16, is there a way i can run the process on a limited account that doesnt have audio access? is that possible?04:37
benito_i cant get a vpn working04:37
squarebracketbazhang, i think he's saying that his desktop is completely down.04:37
bazhangsquarebracket, he wants mint help in here04:38
dmsupermangenii, not even l;ike experimental or one in the works? i'd like to at least try something like that out...it's be pretty awesome04:38
squarebracketbazhang, i think it's a grub problem, not an OS problem. mint or ubuntu is irrelevant in that situation.04:38
ycliannickrud, yeap, compiling pidgin with msnp14.04:38
glitsj16CTD1: might be, don't know how though ..04:38
frank999exactly is a grub problem04:38
dmsupermansquarebracket, in which case this is still the wrong channel04:39
bazhangsquarebracket, you are welcome to take it to PM; this channel explicitly does not support Mint04:39
ExProtagonistBaz: When I search, the only thing coming up is "b43fwcutter".04:39
benjamin_hi, does anyone know anything about aircrack on the ipod touch?04:39
nickrudyclian you might try getting the source from hardy-backports, and modifying the build. It has 2.4.304:39
frank999please, I am still an ubuntu user04:39
bazhangExProtagonist, that is likely the one that will work; try installing it and see04:39
* squarebracket nods04:39
simardFlannel, thank you it worked04:39
squarebracketcase made.04:39
Blaqlighttroythetechguy: even in windows ff3 doesn't use veranda as a the default font, but the sans serif.04:39
CTD1thanks any ways glitsj16 i guess ill just have to tough it out04:39
nickrudyclian I've done that in the far past, it's not real hard.04:39
IdleOnebazhang, or grub issues after the install of mint04:39
ycliannickrud, alright, I will give that a shot.04:40

benjamin_thank you04:40
glitsj16CTD1: you're welcome, it might work if you can get a user group defined which doesn't have any sound access and running it under that user, google around a bit .. goodluck04:40
geniidmsuperman: If the server your pop mail is on has nfs or something you could conceivably use that to mount the home dir mail folder.04:41

Syderonot sure about writing04:42
dmsupermangenii, i was thinking more for my gmail, but i wanted something universal that just worked over the pop protocol...i was thinking how neat it would be to be able to have a literal folder for your emails, and how easily universally accessible mail clients would be done04:42
bazhangasmo[B], sharing via samba with a mac?04:42
geniiasmo[B]: hfsplus and hfsutils04:42

benito_anyone explain to me how to vpn   apt-get install networkmanager-openvpn  didnt work04:43
Blonde_Ambitionok so some major hel pis needed...... im about to pull my hair out04:43
LSD|Ninjaivan_: wait for Intrepid and the open source driver? :P04:43
bazhangExProtagonist, do you have an open wifi spot to test it on? first you need to check ifconfig in terminal and see if the device appears (wlan0)04:44
DARKGuyhey, is ther any program to listen to shoutcast streams a-la winamp (with browser) or an audacious plugin to browse/listen to them? or how do you get the streambrowser plugin that's in audacious-plugins source code?04:44
nickrudswamptin argh, the dreaded dbus. run   sudo apt-get dist-upgrade   (no -s)04:44
geniidmsuperman: I don;t think it would an easy thing to implement since pop is more a file transfer protocol04:44
LSD|Ninjaasmo[B]: the HFS module isn't loaded by default iirc, you need to modprobe it and then having the hfsplus and hfutils installed probably wouldn't be too bad an idea04:44
nickruddmsuperman you use gmail? If so, use the imap access04:45
dmsupermangenii, my thoughts were like anytime the folder were queried for it's contents it would check the server for mails, or something04:45
swamptinnickrud: remeber the first link i sent you? Got that again.04:45
dmsupermannickrud, when it just had come out many had issues, have they fixed them yet?04:45
Blonde_Ambitionanyone in here got any exp with 64bit ndiswrapper?04:45

asmo[B]it kind of seems like my firewire isn't working though... because I should be able to atleast see an unmounted device...04:47
dmsupermannickrud, cool, when i get back to my computer i'll give it a try...i've always wanted to be able to have multiple things check my email without worrying that i'd be scattering my emails all over the place (in terms of archiving) so i'll give that a try :D04:47

ivan_ hello, i have an ati x1200, but in the ate website oi cant find its driver, and the driver in the restricted module sucks, i do have direct rendering but when i move windows they look crappy etc... What should i do??04:48
bazhangExProtagonist, many have reported success with that driver though, and if not that then there is the ndiswrapper gambit; will this be a dual boot?04:48
Blonde_Ambitionok so why then does my Realtek 8185 show up when i lspci scan, but i cant get it to notice it as a network interface after i load the drivers with ndiswrapper04:49

kmystBlonde_Ambition: is that the realtek that's wireless but usb based even though it's internal?04:49
Blonde_Ambitioni dont think so04:50
Blonde_Ambitionit is a realtek chip in a foreign made card04:50
LSD|Ninjaivan_: the driver you'll find on the ATi website is the same one that'll be in the hardware drivers panel. It's a well known fact that the ATi fglrx driver sucks04:50
asmo[B]would my firewire card show up in the network connections like in windows?04:50

LSD|Ninjaasmo[B]: no, ubuntu blacklist that driver04:50
benito_can anyone walk me through vpn on ubuntu?04:50
kmystBlonde_Ambition: ah...well i ran into one of those, forget the model, but lspci would show it and it wound up working with a win98 only driver04:50

nickrudswamptin one last question, to be sure. You are upgrading from gutsy to hardy, not some other release to hardy05:09
bazhang#freenode MooCow05:09
martosurfsorry to bother with this: how do i add this line to fstab (i need to mount /media/cdrom1 as /dev/dvd): sudo ln -s /media/cdrom1 /dev/dvd05:09
nickrudmartosurf you don't need to add that to fstab, just run it and it will exist in the filesystem05:10
martosurfnickrud: cooool, tnx mate =D05:10
unopmartosurf, err no, don't do that ..  that creates a link to the device05:10

swamptinnickrud: and yes. sorry pottered off for a glass of water.05:12
martosurfunop: hi, yeah, i have dvd device mounted as /media/cdrom1 but many apps including gxine reads DVDs from /dev/dvd that's why i need to do that05:13
nickrudswamptin http://paste.ubuntu.com/28902/ use that as your sources. It's the sources as set up according to ubottu/wiki05:13
Blaqlightmartosurf: never had that problem.05:13
nickrudswamptin when you've got those changed over, let me know. I've a couple other commands to run05:13
unopmartosurf, then you should be linking /dev/dvd to the device mounted at /media/cdrom1 not /media/cdrom1 itself05:14
martosurfBlaqlight: hi there, yeah, but you know, linux is sooo versatile you know, every system if different from the other05:14
martosurfunop: RIGHT! and i want to do that from fstab if possible but don't know how to do this =(05:14
unopmartosurf, you don't create links with /etc/fstab, you only mount filesystems with it05:15

nickrudswamptin && means, 'if the previous command completes successfully, run the next command'05:16
Blaqlightmartosurf: yes to what?05:16
martosurfunop: Blaqlight: anyway, it's working fine right now with - i know it's not the best way but works05:16

martosurfBlaqlight: are you actually trying to change the device name or how it shows up in apps?  <--- yes to that =)05:17
unopmartosurf, i think you want udev rules to map /dev/dvd to the right device05:17

corollaxcellofellow: I understand that sometimes it's necessary (I had a TERRIBLE run in with an alien installation recently -- absolutely necessitated dpkg -f all -- but...well, I'm not sure it's wise to advise that via IRC.)05:38
Fezzlercrdlb: ran it myself and now I have all compiz functions on my AMD Athlon under Hardy!05:38

Fezzlercrdlb: I have worked on this few weeks on end here and at #compiz-fusion.05:39
crdlbFezzler: fantastic, but keep in mind that you'll have to re-run that installer after any X or kernel updates05:39
glitsj16RadicalR: .. the obvious first .. after reinstalling pulseaudio, did you start it up again ?05:39

benitothat was the output though05:39
RadicalRThat's what I just realized. I didn't do pulseaudio -D05:39
RadicalRHowever, how do I write this so I don't have to do this EVERY time I reboot?05:40
cellofellowbenito: generally a broken installation needs to be fixed, which is what dpkg -f does. -f is fix. Maybe not dpkg -f all, just dpkg -f packagename,05:40
Fezzlercrdlb: Heck, at least I know now!  So, what is SSE and why does nvidia needed it, etc.05:40
RadicalRStill no audio05:40
Kernelnomad729: yea i know that will work...was just wondering why its doing this......05:40
unopbenito, not sure then - this package is from a third party repository05:40
chadWhen i boot ubuntu from a cd to install it05:40
chadall i get is a grub screen05:40
cellofellowFezzler: SSE is some multimedia extensions in modern processors, which unless your on an ancient 286 should be there.05:41
chadI need help..05:41
RadicalRHmm, when I run alsamixer05:41
wbmjchad: you boot the cd and get a command prompt?05:41
Fezzlercellofellow: I'm on an AMD Athlon05:41
crdlbFezzler: SSE was invented by intel, so AMD didn't get it until the Athlon XP series (according to wikipedia)05:41
chadi get a grub console05:41
RadicalRIt states that the master is [off]05:41
benitoim trying to get vpn working with network manager but it wont show up in the network manager05:41
chadwhat do i type in the grub console?05:42
cellofellowchad: I hate grub prompts. You're booting from the CD though? I thought the CD uses isolinux not grub.05:42
jmarsdenchad: You need to make sure you are really booting from the CD... sounds like you may be accidentally still booting from HD?05:42
Fezzlercrdlb: So whatever SSE does the GeForce FX 5500 is handling?05:42
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about isolinux05:42
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about stupidbot05:42
wbmjcellofellow it does.....that's why it doesn't make sense05:43
chadi'm sure i'm booting from the cd05:43
cpierceanyone know of a ppd for a d2545 deskjet from hp?05:43
jmarsdenchad: As a test, can you disconnect all hard drives and then boot from the CD?05:43
wbmjjmardens: same thought here05:43
chadit's my very first boot device05:43
crdlbFezzler: SSE is used by nvidia's opengl library to improve performance, but there's no reason why they couldn't have made it optional05:43
cellofellowchad: the BIOS still might skip to the HDD instead of the CD anyway.05:43
Fezzlercrdlb: This is so awesome.  You are the only one who figured this out!  So we believe the 100.14.19 is that last nvidia driver that will work with my CPU05:43
chadlet me try again05:44
cellofellowFezzler: :( old drive05:44
chadgive me 2 min05:44
wbmjchad: what is the OS on the harddrive?05:44
benitogod damn i cant believe this is so hard05:44
glitsj16RadicalR: use pavucontrol (if you have that installed) and check there as well .. if you get things fixed you can add that "pulseaudio -D" comand to your session (system > admin > sessions i believe) to autostart it05:44
benitowtf is the problem05:44
benitowhy is it so difficult to get on vpn05:44
cellofellowbenito: it's not supposed to happen. Did dpkg -f all do anything?05:44
chadwbmj: it's windows XP05:44
crdlbFezzler: yes, and in the future, you'll probably need to switch to 96.xx, since nvidia will not update 100.14.19 for newer kernel versions (such as the one that will be in intrepid)05:44
Fezzlercrdlb: Thank you so much dude.  My daughter has a bunch of stuff she used that needed the GeForce card.05:44
cellofellowbenito: Ubuntu includes a VPN client by default.05:44

benitowhat vpn client05:45
Fezzlercrdlb: I was about to give up on Ubuntu and switch distros or something05:45

nickrudbullgard4 those links get switched around when you use the update-alternatives command. The intent is to allow you to have various apps that provide the same functionality (like java versions) and easily switch the default05:46
jmarsdenbullgard4: It lets you decide which java (for example) you want to be run by the java command.  Likewise for sendmail, etc.05:46

bastid_raZorFezzler; the 5500 card has issues running compiz at its highest settings.. i have the same card on another box. nvidia-glx-new worked fine. the card is hindering your performance.. not the driver05:46
Fezzlercellofellow: The Desktop Cube and other 3D apps didn't work with legacy.05:46

rosswhat is the command?05:46
unopbullgard4, if you have multiple packages providing the same functionality, i.e. multiple installed versions of e.g firefox, java, etc - the alternatives system is used to provide links to the various binaries.  the  update-alternatives manpage should make it a bit clearer05:47
cellofellowFezzler: did you try XGL?05:47
RadicalRHang on. I have it stored here...05:47

afallenhopemkquist, no. why05:47
benjamin_ is there a channel for XvidCap?05:47
Fezzlercellofellow: XGL?05:47
crdlbFezzler: nvidia maintains three driver lines for different models. new cards use the latest series (nvidia-glx-new), geforce 4 and older must use nvidia-glx which is currently at version 96.something, and really ancient cards like pre-geforce stuff must use nvidia-glx-legacy, which is 71.xx05:47

Hewjadams_: your error says you have broken packages06:03
laughtearunop, done. do you know what it is by the way?06:03
Blaqlightgoogle the name of your card -ubuntu and you should find a driver for it.06:03
Hewjadams_: have you tried fixing these?06:03
RadicalRIt used to work before.06:04
RadicalRI shouldn't have to reinstall any drivers.06:04
unopjadams_, aptitude might only be giving you a short term remedy here06:04
jadams_and yeah, I added a debian repo from de for some fMRI software I had to install, but I disabled it after the install06:04
jmarsdenlaughtear: .dmrc is the desktop manager per-user defaults file06:04
BlaqlightRadicalR: after you sudo aptitude install dist-upgrade?06:04
laughtearjmarsden, then, what could be the reason of this matter?06:04
unoplaughtear, if the permissions on ~/.dmrc aren't right, gnome will complain06:05
Blaqlightbecause if thats the case then if your removed pulseaudio you'll get your sound back...06:05
unoplaughtear, you probably changed permissions on the file inadvertently, or copied this file from somewhere else06:05
jmarsdenlaughtear: somehow a program created or edited that file and set incorrect permissions on it...06:05
Hewjadams_: run synaptic and find what the broken packages are. You'll probably have to remove these before you can use apt properly06:05
RadicalRwell, I was having problems with it before06:06
RadicalRlike I could only have one application running sound06:06
BlaqlightRadicalR: thats because you were using OSS and not ALSA06:06
jadams_Hew: yeah, I already did that and it couldn't really06:06
jadams_one of the 'broken' packages is libperl something06:06
BlaqlightALSA supports more than one app using the sound... OSS does not06:06

cellofellowbenito: looks like xirbuntu might be having the same problem as you06:07
jadams_unop: granted06:07
unopjadams_, if ever you need to do things like this, build from source or backport a package, never install debian's binary packages06:07

jadams_but FSL is a finicky software package as far as I can tell06:08

unopjadams_, if you still have the debian repo enabled, you ought to disable it now to stop things like this happening again06:09

RadicalRI got audio working06:22
RadicalRwith the exception of rhythmbox06:23
ibosUNOP said: ibos, as long as you set this up right, you shouldn't need to change IP addresses, etc .. just make sure each interface has the right IP addresses set, it should be as simple as that. In my office has 2 line of LAN. One to LAN in local and regional office (all state), and other to internet line. Before (by switcthing IP in single LAN card), I can reach regional LAN server (and internet in different time). But NOW (two LAN cards) I can not reach reg06:24

Johnnyand do you know anything to encrypt passwords jmarsden07:37
Johnnyin firefox07:38
jmarsdenencrypt... well, passwd does that :-)  What specifically do you need to do?07:38
webmanjohnny: there is a crypt plugin for firefox I think ....07:39
Johnnysomething to encrypt passwords so that nothing going into a form can be sniffed or something07:39
jmarsdenJohnny: In Firefox?  Just set it not to store passwords at all.  And use https connections?07:39
goosedoes anyone know why ubuntu will detect wireless networks, but not connect to them?07:40
Johnnyif i dont store passwords id have 15+ or so id have to remember and i get them mixed up07:40
webmanjohnny: you can't, if the server uses https, then it is done for you, otherwise, you can't enter anything into the form or else it can be sniffed07:40
Johnnygoose, i had a similar problem it has something to do with nm-applet and network manager conflict i think07:40
Johnnycant remember what though07:40
gooseJohnny, do you remember how you fixed it? I have no idea what nm-applet is07:41
Johnnyi dont goose i sold that laptop to a friend sorry07:41
skurakaihi i have trouble with Firefox.07:41
Johnnynm-applet is the little applet on the bar for network manager07:41
goosedamn.. it originally worked straight off the install, but when I installed wifi-radar, it stopped working07:42
skurakaii'am using windows profile on NTFS but FF on start send "Firefox cannot use the profile "Default" because it is in use."07:42
Johnnyhow do i set up snort jmarsden ?07:42
wbmjgoose: to use wifi-radar you need to edit /etc/interfaces07:42

danyI have an odd problem with my sound. I don't really know how to put this into words, so bear with me. When I play an audio file, it seems as though there are missing channels\tracks, does this sound familiar to anyone?07:47

itai-michaelsoni'm afraid to get them wrong07:52
goosewbmj, is there a terminal command I can execute to see if I have an IP assigned to my wireless?07:52
jmarsdenNo, it runs netbsd underneath so uses its disk devcie names.07:52
jmarsdenitai-michaelson: read the manual again, there is a command that lists devices...07:53

itai-michaelsonjmarsden, so how can i tell which is the target disc and which the source07:53
itai-michaelsoncan i browse them somehow?07:53
wbmjgoose: ok when you finish download disconnect the hardwire and logout/in........should update nm-applet listings07:53

TENFrom you experience, can Ubuntu comfortably (i.e. without constant disk thrashing) be run on a 256 MB machine (1+ GHz processor implied) for general OpenOffice/Firefox/Ekiga(VoIP)/Pidgin use?

faliesonWhat do I need to download so VLC will play this file? how do I find out what codec I need and then how do I add it to vlc07:56
TENitai-michaelson: Thanks, I feared I'd hear that. Not that any of the apps I mentioned would actually require GNOME though...07:57
itai-michaelsonTEN, you can install the general edition and then run it with a different graphic environment07:57
_2l3d you can but you could use something FOSS'ish07:57
wbmjfalien: install ubuntu-restricted-meta...............07:57

jeeves__webman, and the recursive part?07:59
webmanbtfx: can you do CTRL-ALT-F1 when it is 'frozen' ??07:59
btfxwebman: one sec, let me check07:59
webmanjeeves__: if the source is a dir then it will move the dir and all it's contents08:00
jmarsdenjeeves__: if you move a directory you have by definition moved everything under it08:00
_2webman just a thought.  but mv on local fs doesn't actually move anything it only readdresses the inodes  ;/08:00
wbmjFAJALOU: in terminal gnome-appearances-properties08:00
_2which is good!08:00
webmanbtw, in my second above it won't move the files/directories under the source that start with a .   :)08:00

jeeves__webman, thanks.08:01

wbmjFALJALOU: my mistake gnome-appearance-properties08:02
webmanbtfs: what do you mean by unfreeze ?? does it just freeze for a few seconds or something ?08:02
FAJALOUwbjm :  tabbed it thx.  segmentation fault :\08:02
goosewbmj, you rock08:02
webman_2: no, it calls the system call "rename" which is an atomic action, so at any instant, only one of the entries will exist never both, and never neither. The OS looks after that for you08:03
wbmjFAJALOU: that's not good08:03

unopcha0n1x, well, from what i understand . dd creates a byte for byte copy of a filesystem, so the resulting dump is one big binary file and unless you know every contained file's boundary markers - you wouldn't know where files begin and end and therefore wouldn't be able to extract contents - unless off course you could mount the img file08:30
FAJALOUwbmj: it worked :D but it is huge :)08:30
abhi_is there any command to put the monitor to sleep/08:30
wbmjFAJALOU: that's good....but what's huge08:30
cha0n1xunop: If I created a new partition on a non-empty hard-drive, would I lose data if I "Extracted" the contents to that partition?08:30
FAJALOUwbjm the panels are 21 pixels, they were at 19, and they can't go any lower than 21.08:31
arvind_khadriabhi_, sleep <duration>08:31
wbmjFAJALOU: may be the theme your using now08:32
unopcha0n1x, well, is the .img file an image of a single partition? was the size of that partition less than or equal to the size of this partition? if the answer is yes to both these questions then no, you wouldn't lose data08:32
kjorcha0n1x: if it's a complete drive dump (/dev/hdX instead of /dev/hdXY) you'll need to write it out to a drive in order to make much use of it. if it's a partition dump, you could mount it loopback.08:32
FAJALOUwbmj: positive it is; is there a way to fix that easily?08:32
kjortrying this again. I'm trying to open a document (ODT, using OpenOffice 2.3.0/openoffice.org-core 1:2.3.0-1ubuntu5.4, Fri May 2 07:39:46 UTC) that I was working on yesterday. Now, the progress bar at the bottom of the window flashes momentarily and then (I guess at the render stage) OOo just stops, and consumes ~95% CPU. I already tried making a new .odt container without the two pictures in there, no change whatsoever. content.xml looks OK at08:32
abhi_arvind_khadri, : duration in sec/min/hr08:32
cha0n1xkjor: It was a complete drive dump - If I go and do a partition dump instead, would that solve the loopback problem?08:32
jmarsdenkjor: Have you used tools like sleuthkit to work with disk images?  Ther are definitely things you can do with them...08:32
murlidharitai-michaelson: i am not talking about the panel background only desktop background . actually there was a setting , where i could right click on the desktop and change the desktop background with a gui . That gui is somehow not visible now.08:32
murlidharitai-michaelson: now only a openbox menu is shown when i right click on the desktop08:32
kjorif you do a partition dump, you can mount that one using the loopback device and then access it just like you would a regular partition.08:33
arvind_khadriabhi_, after number suffix s for seconds m for minutes d for days08:33
cha0n1xunop: it was a complete drive dump, so I think my best bet is to go back and make a partition dump08:33
wbmjFAJALOU: does the theme change the panel appearance08:33
cha0n1xunop: It might save a bit of time too as I think it's the start/boot sector of the disk that's stuffed hehe08:33
jmarsdencha0n1x: if you can, that's fine.  But the full drive dump can be worked with and you can extract partitions from it....08:33
murlidharitai-michaelson: i am not talking about the panel background only desktop background . actually there was a setting , where i could right click on the desktop and change the desktop background with a gui . That gui is somehow not visible now.08:33
murlidharitai-michaelson: now only a openbox menu is shown when i right click on the desktop08:33
unopcha0n1x, right, you cannot write a disk dump onto a partition - well you could, but it wouldn't make any sense to do so08:33
unopcha0n1x, what was wrong with the drive?08:34
abhi_arvind_khadri, : it does't work when i give it in run command08:34
James_Bomb#hell is a channel08:34

CostaRicanQuakerhow do i check my system specs on ubuntu?08:39
Blaqlightjoustin: sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install dist-upgrade08:39
jmarsdencha0n1x: sudo apt-get install sleuthkit and then use mmls on it ?08:39
itai-michaelsonCostaRicanQuaker, there are files in the /proc directory08:39
unopBlaqlight, it's easier to do.   do-release-upgrade  # it takes care of migrating over your /etc/apt/sources.list08:39
FructoseCostaRicanQuaker: It depends on which specs you want08:39
cha0n1xjmarsden: I've got mmls - and I used it on the image file, and I can see the partition table for it. What would I do from here?08:40
itai-michaelsonCostaRicanQuaker, try cat /proc/meminfo08:40
joustinthat isnt working for me, it says 0 to instal08:40
jmarsdencha0n1x: I need to get some sleep, but using the various computer forensics tools you can do a lot with that image.08:40
arvind_khadriCostaRicanQuaker, du -ck gives used space and df shows free space08:40

jmarsdencha0n1x: try mmcat next08:40
arvind_khadrine2k__, what??08:41
FructoseWhy do you guys give terminal commands when there are pretty GUI options too? You shouldn't assume everyone wants to use a terminal.08:41
ne2k__arvind_khadri: quack08:41
itai-michaelsonFructose, cause they are easier to give over IRC08:41
cha0n1xjmarsden: Where would I get mmcat? or what is it's package name?08:41
jmarsdenit is part of sleuthkit, so is mmls08:41
Fructoseitai-michaelson: Easier to give, not necessarily receive.08:41
Bert_2Hi, I'm searching for a good usenet client that has all the stuff I need to read messages and get binaries, any suggestions ?08:41

joustinhmm it doesnt like it when i put it in08:43
Blaqlightarvind_khadri: wait a minute. I wasn't complaining. its just an observation.08:43

ne2k__Fructose:  ;-)08:44
arvind_khadrixanax`, hi08:44
itai-michaelsonFructose, i personally prefer the terminal but if someone asks for a GUI i can try to help with that as well, its just that i'm a slow typer08:44
BlaqlightI believe he removed all doubt of sarcasm...08:45
Fructoseitai-michaelson: Well, for instance, in the case where someone asks for system specs, my guess is they don't know how to use the terminal well. Otherwise, they would probably know that "system specs" is a very broad set of info.08:45
xanax`does anyone have a Soundmax HD 1988 integrated soundcard ? (and succeed making work in Ubuntu 8.04 ?08:46

Oli``Pulseaudio just crashed but now no apps will load - they just stall halfway through loading and eventually crash. Everything already running is stable. I've had this problem before and the only way to fix it is a full restart. The only thing that shows in logs is the pulseaudio crash. I've got tons of free RAM and I've memtest86+'d it. All my HDs are fine. Any ideas?08:50
eordenadorFAJALOU: is there any possibility to edit the network manually?08:50
