bobertdosChad: Well, is it the Ubuntu restricted driver you're using?00:06
Odd-rationalelegend2440: iirc, the reason you don't have shutdown sounds is that ubuntu now shutsdown too fast before the sounds gets to play...00:06
hiptobecubic^what's the difference between tee, echo >>, and cat >> ?00:06
Chadbobertdos, no im using the radeon driver00:06

Chadbobertdos: how do i do that?00:07
Odd-rationalebobertdos: no. the open source ati drivers...00:07
Flannelhiptobecubic^: Well, "tee" allows you to sudo it00:07
Flannelhiptobecubic^: but other than that, right.  nothing.00:07
hiptobecubic^you can't sudo cat or echo?00:07
bobertdosOdd-rationale: That's what I thought. His card is new enough where the ATI binary may be the only way to go. I don't know if we dare even go there though :p00:08

igorwhey guys, when I make a bridge br0 (10.10.30.1), and add 2 interfaces to the bridge tap0 and eth0 (208.x.x.x), I can not use eth0 to connect to internet anymore.. how could I go around that?00:27
legend2440Chad: well its up to you but i'm 99.9% sure that if you enable the ATI proprietary drivers you will be able to use compiz with no problem. you can alway uncheck the box and go back to the open source driver. i noticed in your xorg.conf it says Driver "radeon". i'm pretty sure that should say Driver "ati" but the proprietary   fglrx drivers are very good in my experience. i have Radeon 9600 card00:27
unopgroken, that totally depends on how you want to resolve names that are not fully qualified.   if you are looking up a host named foo, do you want it to be resolved to foo.some.domain.address.com or foo.address.com00:27
Chadlegend2440: except when i enable them i can't boot ubuntu black screen at login00:28

AndoreaCan someone tell me what is the command for "show desktop" [i wanna add it to my AWN launcher]00:35
unopigorw, if you attach an interface to a bridge, it becomes quite unusable by itself  -- and since your bridge uses a private IP address, it is not surprising you cannot ping a host on the internet.00:35

unopigorw, errm, you'll have to give br0 a secondary IP address - a private one00:39
MuzikJunkieJack_Sparrow: Does it matter if I am logged on as Root@hostname when i run this?00:40
unopigorw, tap0 and eth0 go out of use when part of a bridge, administering them becomes a no-op when they are a part of a bridge00:40

votanincase my problem got scrolled away earlier :) --> somehow my Sound-Control stopped working recently after an update. I still hear the sound just fine, but I can't control the volume and (I use a laptop) the internal speakers don't get muted after I plug in external Speakers. Does anyone have an idea what's broken ?01:29

MuzikJunkiehisto: glx-legacy and glx nvidia kernel common01:29
unopMISI, can you log on ok? does this message stop you from logging on? if so, where are you seeing it?01:29
histoMuzikJunkie: yeah the glx-legacy drivers hanging around would definately be an issue.01:29
itai-michaelsonhisto can u have a look ? http://paste.ubuntu.com/29447/01:29
histoMuzikJunkie: remove those and the kernel module then put the new card in and install nvidia-glx01:29
histoMuzikJunkie: sudo aptitude purge nvidia-glx-legacy    etc....01:30
robdigvotan: try right clicking on speaker icon by clock, then select preferences. see if PCM is selected. if not, try selecting it01:30
MuzikJunkiehisto: same way, aptitude purge?01:30
histoMuzikJunkie: yeppers01:30
XavuraSo I was just sat here, happily coding away, then all of a sudden all my screen started flashing and stuff. All my windows kind of moved and, well I don't know, it was weird01:30
histoitai-michaelson: is that the proper monitor?01:30
MISIunop, i boot up pc, there is a loading screen and after 3 sec i get this01:31
moshejust completed an update,have compiz enabled but now I cannot resize windows.Can't remember how to fix this one.any ideas?01:31
Xavuraand then all of my programs were moved onto my first virtual desktop thing01:31
=== entropy is now known as Guest24331
XavuraBut before they were all spread out across the virtual desktops01:31
itai-michaelsonhisto, my monitor says " SyncMaster 943nw" ,however i'm afraid it could a China-only model01:31
smeemoshe: ccsm -> window utils01:31
XavuraLooking at it, I think compiz fusion decided to shut down as my transparency is gone but, it just happened out of nowhere01:31
histoMuzikJunkie: the new card should at least work in vesa mode then you can install the restricted driver01:31
unopMISI, so this is before you enter your username and password?01:31
histoitai-michaelson: and its just a problem with the clarity of fonts?01:32
MISIunop, yes01:32
smeemoshe: ccsm -> window managment -> Resize Window01:32
unopMISI, and that is the exact error message you get?01:32
itai-michaelsonhisto, yes01:32
histoitai-michaelson: I would check the font settings for dpi if not perhaps someone else would know here.01:33
smeemoshe: bindings -> initiate window resize for mouse01:33
MuzikJunkiehisto: check http://paste.ubuntu.com/29449  is this ok to remove?01:33
MuzikJunkiehisto: looks serious01:33
votanrobdig: PCM is selected01:33
MISIunop. yes i see only this01:33
smeeitai-michaelson: i usuall change teh dpi in settings -> appearance -. fonts to 72 instead of 9601:33
histoMuzikJunkie: what are you trying to remove that wanted to remove that?01:33
MuzikJunkiehisto: nvidia kernel common01:34
unopMISI, i would reinstall grub if i were you.01:34
unop!grub | MISI01:34
ubottuMISI: grub is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost grub after installing windows: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows - Making GRUB floppies & other GRUB howtos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto01:34
histoMuzikJunkie: okay leave the kernel common then.01:34
MuzikJunkiehisto: ok01:34
moshesmee,which option?01:34
histoMuzikJunkie: yeah its part of normal ubuntu install forgot about that.01:34
moshesmee,which option?01:34
histoMuzikJunkie: just remove the nivida-glx-legacy stuff.01:34
madfrancisI'm having an issue with my xorg.conf.backup. Specifically, when I try to save a new config it says it cannot remove the old backup. When I went to the actual DIR to do it manually it says I can't because I don't have permission. How do I remedy this?01:35
MISIunop, ok, i will try this, thx01:35
pan034234how do i install firefox32 on amd64?01:35

histoMuzikJunkie: yeah shut the computer off install new card and boot up.01:35
mosheresize is checked01:36
histoMuzikJunkie: you'll probably get and X error and need ot install nvidia-glx01:36
smeemoshe: then when your in that part, open the bindings tab01:36

unopmadfrancis, open up your editor in this way.  gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf01:36

unopmadfrancis, that's quite pointless01:37
madfrancisperhaps not. But I've seen the file with my own eyeballs01:37

unopmadfrancis, does the file exist?  ls -ld /etc/X11/xorg.conf01:37

hoontekehisto, k, loooking there now01:38

drwelbyHi, I have 4 scripts in cron.hourly. If I run-parts /etc/cron.hourly, all 4 run. However, when cron runs that folder, only 3 run. the scripts all have similar permissions. Where to troubleshoot next?01:38
smeemoshe: if you cant see the top of the window, then try pressing alt + drag to move the window01:38
MuzikJunkiehisto: X started and I have a normal looking login screen01:39
madfrancisunop: yes01:39
smeethis drag behaviour can be changed in System -> Preferences -> Window01:39
unopmadfrancis, what does that return?01:39
moshethat works smee,but I used to be able to drag the window with left mouse btn and no alt01:39
histoMuzikJunkie: okay so its using the vesa driver now you just have to install the nvidia-glx driver it should actually prompt you01:39
histoMuzikJunkie: and tell you that a restricted driver is availible.01:39
jokkaahttp://img99.imageshack.us/my.php?image=screenshffot1ru0.jpg ended up pretty good=)01:39
MuzikJunkiehisto: so far, no prompt but I do have a desktop01:39
smeemoshe: oops i tell l lie, i have it set to super+middle click to start resize01:40
histoMuzikJunkie: yeah you are using the non open gl driver basically now you just have to install nvidia-glx and you will be good to go.01:40

histoMuzikJunkie: try going to System > Administraiton > Hardware Drivers you should be able to do it from there.01:41
mosheit worked b4 the update.can't remember how I fixed it last time01:41

victor_xtknight: can anyone look at my dmesg output for my TV Tuner Kworld ATSC 120:  http://pastebin.com/m2eb867ba01:43
unoporgthingy, why would you want cmd.exe when you have a number of shells that do everything better?01:43
kitcheorgthingy: yes terminal and ctl+alt+F1 will take you to the shell but if you want dos go get dosbox01:44
histoorgthingy: you could run a virtual machine with dos installed.01:44
smeeorgthingy: cmd? as in windows cmd.exe?01:44
nonewmsgshow do i mount a bin/cue combo01:44
orgthingyunop: because i want to do a windows thing01:44
orgthingyi love terminal, but i *have* to use cmd01:44
unoporgthingy, like what exactly?01:44
madfrancisunop: Crap! Now when I go to save the settings I get this... "Failed to open existing X config file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'!"01:44
histoorgthingy: then you need dosbox or wine to use windows apps01:44
orgthingyunop: i dunno, ask my school man01:44
buzzsawi am trying to compile a program and i got http://pastebin.com/m60110c02   however apt-get does not like   makeinfo or textinfo for packages01:44

histoorgthingy: its kind of hard to answer you questions if you wont' explain.01:45
orgthingyshe told me that sometimes, terminal is fine but not for all classes01:45
histoorgthingy: we've told you that you can use dosbox probably01:45

unoporgthingy, wine cmd.exe01:46
MuzikJunkiehisto: i cannot even get to a TTY01:46
histoorgthingy: use dosbox or virtualbox.01:46
smeeorgthingy: there is also a dos emulator in the repos01:46
JFCakeNice one.01:46
victor_xtknight: did you look at my dmesg output01:46
MuzikJunkiehisto: recovery mode i guess?01:46
histoMuzikJunkie: reboot and at the grub screen hit esc and select recovery mode.01:46
SUPEROGTAnyone has any idea about load modules at startup ?01:47
smeeorgthingy: the dos emulator would be less of an exercise to get up and running too01:47
orgthingyah01:47
orgthingywine has cmd :D01:47
spiritwalkerhello does anyone knows why i have sdl libs installed and when i compile something ubuntu says they are not i'm relative new in linux01:47
xtknightvictor_, yes i did.  i dont know what it means01:47
orgthingywine cmd.exe01:47
orgthingy:D01:47
orgthingythanks a lot01:47
histoMuzikJunkie: yeah atleast we know your card is working we just have to figure out which driver it wants. IT should be nvidia-glx I don' know why it would try -new01:47
WatchDragonvirtualbox = easy stuff01:47
orgthingyand yes, ill try dos emulators01:47
kitchespiritwalker: most likely need -dev01:47
victor_xtknight: i also see this [ 4387.674395] cx88[0]: Calling XC2028/3028 callback01:47
xtknightvictor_, compile a 2.6.26 kernel and try01:47
smeeorgthingy: you want to make sure when dealing with permissions that the wine cmd is representing the situation as per normal windows lunacy01:47
MuzikJunkiehisto: and you want me to run the aptitude purge...is this the same as unchecking the package in synaptic?01:48
histoorgthingy: yeah wine cmd.exe will work for you.01:48
histoorgthingy: just install wine sudo aptitude install wine01:48
xtknightvictor_, p.s. enable CONFIG_SND in the new kernel if you want sound (and the proper module for your card), something most kernel compilation guides neglect to mention01:48
orgthingyi have wine already01:48
histoMuzikJunkie: purge will remove the configuration files01:48
orgthingy:)01:48
MuzikJunkiehisto: is this what i need to run?01:48
unoporgthingy, wine does not have cmd.exe -- you need to run the cmd.exe that exists in your wine installation with wine01:48
histoMuzikJunkie: but yes aptitude purge just removes the package and its configs01:49
histoMuzikJunkie: sudo aptitude purge nvidia-glx-new01:49
histoMuzikJunkie: then sudo aptitude install nvidia-glx01:49
histoMuzikJunkie: hopefully that should fix it all.01:49
spiritwalker-dev ??? sorry i'm really a small pidgin01:49
orgthingywell, it seems that it has cmd.exe :)01:49
smeeorgthingy: ha, you have to use the "wine cmd" in an existing terminal though...i assumed this wasnt the case..01:50
unoporgthingy, actually wait. wine has it's own cmd.exe but it isn't the fully compatible version with the actual microsoft cmd.exe - you'll need to get cmd.exe off of a windows CD01:50
kitchespiritwalker: libsdl-dev package if your trying to compile a program01:50
orgthingyunop : oh, i see01:50
unoporgthingy, the cmd.exe that comes with wine is wine's implementation of cmd.exe01:50
histowhat is wrong with him just using dosbox01:50
orgthingyi see01:50

histoMuzikJunkie: cross your fingers if not we'll just remove that and use the regular vesa driver temporarily01:51
histoorgthingy: yes01:51

jimd1hi guys.  I'm trying to add a new user to my ubuntu desktop set up.  When I create the account using System > Administration > Users and Groups, after the account appears to b created it is missing a number of folders such as music, pictures, public, etc. Anyone have any ideas on how these other folders "should" get created?02:01
histoMuzikJunkie: its an editor02:01
unopMISI, yes indeed, grub does not know how to read off of ntfs partitions to get the boot images02:01
smeeSUPEROGT: not being a stagnant project means it always presenting new things to learn02:01
histoMuzikJunkie: the keys ont he bottom are Ctrl then the letter02:01
MuzikJunkiehisto: i know, just not familiar with it02:01
histoMuzikJunkie: well use which ever editor your are familiar with.02:01
corpus_fenestrumquit02:01
smeejimd1: this  behaviour you want is like windows server profiles ?02:01
histoMuzikJunkie: nano will ask you to save any changes on exit.02:01
smeejimd1: it is possible with linux, but i forget how02:01
MISIunop, i jusy used the option that was in the installation, so what can i do now>02:01
MuzikJunkiehisto: nothing in there about nvidia...there is a glx module though02:02
unopjimd1, these directories get created as and when needed by applications that the user runs02:02
MuzikJunkiehist: gedit :-)02:02
unopMISI, the best thing to do is create a new partition with gparted, and install linux on that one02:02
jimd1unop:  when my first account was created by the installer (when I first installed ubuntu) it created these folders for me.02:03
smeejimd1:ahh i think i remember now, there is a folder somewhere with this blank setup that gets used02:03
MuzikJunkiehist: device sectiojn has "Configured video device"  Driver nvidia...there it is02:03
unopjimd1, edit /etc/skel then02:03
unopsmee, ^^02:03
smeejimd1: try searching on ubuntu forums for these words : new user profile home02:03
jimd1unop:  I am supposed to copy those?02:03
generato1does anyone here know how to configure SSH??02:04
smeejimd1: no, this folder is copied by the 'new user' app when you create the user02:04
unopjimd1, no, create all the files and folders that you expect the new user to have in /etc/skel .. whenever you create a new user from then on, those files and folders will be copied to the user's homedir02:04
MISIunop, ok, i will try, i have also a qurstion, how yo uninstall that one from the ntfs partition, the wondows installer cant do it02:04
MuzikJunkiehisto: driver is nvidia and glx module is present02:04
jimd1smee:  i used the System > administration > users and groups to create the new user.  i simply filled in the dialog box and clicked.  those folders are not copied or made at that time02:05

Mr_Bad_Newsis there a way to get nautilus permission preferences like they were in dapper with the check boxes instead of the pull down menus03:10
holyguyverZoem, but my resalution is fine, only on my loginwindow it is different then the rest of my system.03:10
vilemaximGibbster: huh? hydroponic that will not work03:10

craigbass1976I'm booted to a livecd on a busted windows box.  Is there ANY way to import the IE bookmarks into the livecd mozilla so that I can then dump them out and restore once I've reinstalled windows?03:10
hydroponicvilemaxim: Any way around that?03:10
smeetech0007: can you try right clicking on the file and using extract?03:10
Zoemrafaelscj I have no gateway, nat, or other device that would use a 192 block address. I have an IP direct from my ISP, with their gateway03:10

ColOfNatureokay, so: if i plug in the ide drive which has ubuntu installed, then if i chose my sata drive from the bios boot menu grub loads but returns error 17 if i try to load ubuntu, or err 13 if i choose windows. if, on the other hand, i chose the ide drive with ubuntu installed from the boot menu i don't get grub, i just get "Missing operating system". I've unplugged the ubuntu drive, and win is...03:11
ColOfNature...working fine (or as fine as it usually does). Anyone have any ideas?03:11
FF|h0lusWhy ubuntu can't connect to my internet03:11
FF|h0lusWifi03:11
tech0007smee: yup, it shows me the contents of the archive, i cant just extract it03:11
vilemaximhydroponic: use chmod -r 0600 /home/username03:12
FF|h0lusWindows connecting without problems03:12
hydroponicvilemaxim, Gibbster: OK thanks03:12
xtrxfrcraigbass1976: I don't think you can get the file to the livecd, but if you have an internet connection, you can email and attached those files to yourself.03:12
holyguyverZoem I cannot mess with my login settings from within the window for the resalution is so badly off that I cannot see anything when I am in my loginwindow.03:12
vilemaximFF|h0lus: ifconfig will tell if you have an ip address03:12
GibbsterSo... any takers on why an ide drive would pretend to be a scsi drive?03:12
ace_suaresGibbster: i think most sata drives do that03:13
gam3r111i neeeeed help03:13
gam3r111rlly bad03:13

thefoolanyone here know much about pulseaudio?03:14
thefoolit is the default in hardy yet I can't actually "use" it as it was meant to be used, I can't figure out how to control individual applications volumes etc. and pavucontrol (the program that does that) seg faults after installing via apt-get03:14
ace_suaresgam3r111: help with what03:14
tyler_d1vilemaxim: stuck frozen - not processing03:14
Gibbsterace_suares: it's a pata. holyguyver: but there's no chamber music...03:14
vilemaximtyler_d1: kill it and see if you have enough disk space  df -h03:14
FF|h0lusvilemaxim ye I write to terminal this03:14
ace_suaresGibbster: maybe your bios emulates pata trough sata ??03:14
FF|h0lusand what is the next step ? ; p03:14
tyler_d1vilemaxim: I did and there is03:14
Gibbsterace_suares: I doubt it... it's a really old system (and bios)03:15
Gibbsterace_suares:think 200003:15
gam3r111i have vista and ubuntu dual booted on a computer and i wasusing bcd in windows to let the vista loader be incharge instead of grub and i cant boot back into ubuntu03:15
tyler_d1vilemaxim: just prior to this there is a message relating to firefox 3.0 - dependency problems - leaving unconigured03:15
tyler_d1vilemaxim: unconfigured03:15
ColOfNatureanyone know how to stop grub from running unless i boot to the drive it is installed on?03:15
holyguyverGibbster 2000 is not old, until this year I was running on a 1998.03:15
Gibbsterace_suares: I do have another sata drive using a sata card, but that's for a different set of drives03:16
ace_suaresGibbster: well then I dont see how an ide drive can become a scsi drive... you mean /dev/sda or something ?03:16
vilemaximtyler_d1: hmmm.. the next think I would do is start modifing the post and pre install scripts to see how far they are getting... but I would be afraid to direct you to do that.03:16
ace_suaresgam3r111: i have no clue about MS products, including the boot laoder.03:16
gam3r111i have vista and ubuntu dual booted on a computer and i wasusing bcd in windows to let the vista loader be incharge instead of grub and i cant boot back into ubuntu03:16

gam3r111well can someone help me03:17
chh111i got a critical problem trying to upgrade from 8.04.1 to 8.10,can any one help me?03:17
ace_suaresGibbster: well if your pata is connected to the normal ide0 , then it should be /dev/hda03:17
Gibbsterace_suares: the trouble is when I disconnect either of the sata drives, my system doesn't boot03:17
vilemaximtyler_d1: but if you are up for the adventure the scripts are in /var/lib/dpkg/info03:17
Gibbsterace_suares: yeah, that's what I thought03:17
IdleOnechh111, #ubuntu+103:17
tyler_d1vilemaxim: always up for an adventure03:17
ace_suaresGibbster: it's your bios that does that.03:17

Zoemholyguyver hmmm, I think also the startup manager might have something to help you. its in the Add/Remove Programs03:17
vilemaximtyler_d1: you understand bash scripts03:17
smeetech0007: did you "sudo apt-get install 7zip"  or  "sudo apt-get install 7zip-full"03:17
vilemaxim?03:17
yclianHi guys, I am upgrading one of my server from Gutsy to Hardy, but it seems that the locale is screwed. Am seeing "perl: warning: Setting locale failed." whenever a package is installed.03:18
gam3r111i have vista and ubuntu dual booted on a computer and i wasusing bcd in windows to let the vista loader be incharge instead of grub and i cant boot back into ubuntu03:18
ace_suaresGibbster normally, ide0 goes before the sata drives... and in the bios, in boot order, you must be able to set it03:18
yclianThing thing is hanging there btw: Setting up locales (2.7.9-4) ... Generating locales...   en_AU.UTF-8...03:18
tech0007smee: apt-get install p7zip03:18
tyler_d1vilemaxim: somewhat03:18
smeetech0007: also, is the 7zip a multipart?03:18
Gibbsterace_suares: yeah... that's another thing. I installed on the ide drive, but it wouldn't boot until I set the boot sequence to scsi03:18
troythetechguy_ System/prefrences/screen resolution states my refresh rate is 76 Hz, but my on screen display for my monitor says it's 60 Hz.  Which one is probably correct?03:18
tech0007smee: just 1 file, it has an iso inside it03:19
Gibbsterace_suares: this was before the sata drives were even formatted03:19

uriel_i need help with costomixing my user interface03:19
CarlFKwhere can I import slugify from so I can use it in a view ?03:19
vilemaximtyler_d1: if you messed with them at all you should be able to find the line that it is sticking at.  That might explain what is happening.  Once you find the line you can run it directily and see the error you get.03:19
ace_suaresGibbster: can't be anything else then your bios. Or maybe the ROM of you sata adapter does this ? Can you disable that rom or set it uo (Ctrl-M ?)03:19
ace_suaresuo up03:19
uriel_anybody know somthin bout that?03:19
FF|h0lusvilemaxim plz check the pm ;)03:19
smeetech0007: to eliminate corrupted archive, download an entirely seperate 7zip file and try using that03:19
tech0007IdleOne: recreate your firefox profile03:19
CarlFKwhoops, this isn't #django...03:19
vilemaximtyler_d1: you might have to manually figure out the vars03:20
ace_suaresuriel_: what do you want to customize..03:20
tech0007smee: ok will do03:20
smeetech0007: preferably a 7zip file  not made with the p7zip program03:20
IdleOnetech0007, my question is more how did this happen ?03:20
GibbsterCarlFX: your python talk ain't welcome here ;-)03:20

uriel_is there a prgram to use these downloads with or a prosses03:21
Sylphidndo, how much memory do you have?03:21
Gibbsterace_suares: I really don't mind that the drive shows up as sdc. my problem is that when I disconnect another sata drive, I can't boot03:21
Shish_what would cause ubuntu to transfer at usb 1.0 speed on usb 2.0 mem stick? (i'm getting 1.2 Mb/sec in nautilus file transfer dialog) / same usb port on xp transfers at 2.0 speed, please help?03:21

NDPMacBookI run 3 systems!03:22
vilemaximFF|h0lus: we are looking for the wireless card03:23
ace_suaresuriel_: I dont understand you question. Can you rephrase it ?03:23
ace_suaresGibbster: determining what drive can boot03:23
Sylphidndo, what is your load avg?03:23
HappyHaterhow do I switch between channels in irssi?03:23
vilemaximFF|h0lus: not all cards are supported, but it is much better now that it was a few years ago03:23
ndoSylphid: but what have my ram to do with blacking out gnome? oke i understand if i have not enough ram, i can be slow, but not crashing gnome tough, or is it?03:23
ace_suaresGibbster: oh and there is a whole slew of stuff like 'hd0' in grub which changes if you change drives. hd1 will be hd0 etc.03:23
FF|h0lusvilemaxim In PCI I don't have but in Network Controller: Texas Instruments ACX 100 22Mbps wireless interface03:23
chuckis the ubuntu archive server slow or something03:24
uriel_ace suares, how do i change my desktop interface to look well better ive seen downloads in the gnome website but i dont know how to use them is there a program to use them with or a prosses?03:24
Gibbsterace_suares: yeah, that probably explains the 'Grub Hard disk error', but not the blank screen03:24
FF|h0lusthis is PC not notebook and this is extrenal card03:24
Gibbsterace_suares: only the pata drive is marked as bootable\03:24
smeeuriel_: can you please explain yourself more03:24
vilemaximFF|h0lus: now if I was trying to figure this out on my own, I would drop that in google with the word linux and or ubuntu to see if anyone has gotten that card working.03:25
ace_suaresGibbster: well on what drive you have the grub installed... !?03:25
ace_suaresGibbster: marked as bootable in the partition table ? ha ha only for DOS 6.x important03:25
Gibbsterace_suares: the pata drive.03:25
Sylphidndo, what do you mean by 'blacking out'03:25
tech0007chuck: go to software sources and find the fastest mirror03:25
ace_suaresGibbster:  I have NONE marked as bootable in partition table03:25
Gibbsterace_suares: oh really! I had no idea03:25

ace_suaresuriel_: okay.. follow the link smee sent you :-)03:26

ace_suaresGibbster: so, your ide drive is reigned by your sata card !03:27
smeeuriel_: but normally, if its a gtk theme package, just open system -> preferences -> appearance and drag+drop the tar.gz on that window03:27
ace_suaresuriel_: the bot is great !03:27

squarebracketSylphid, what ace_suares said03:38

macodubby: um well if you have no root password, they cant do so.  you can use fail2ban to ban their IP after x failed attempts06:20

unopdubby, or you can totally hide sshd using knockd06:21
dany317так это млин точно не айсикушный клиент06:21
normlomanwould it be /media/cdrom1 ?06:21
macolivan: compiz is included as part of hardy...it is enabled by default if your hardware supports it06:21

arooni-mobile__are UUIDs specific to DRIVES or PARTITIONSso i even have to use uuids?  cant i just use /dev/sda2 /home?06:21
normlomanwhen I mount it myself? What do you mean? Like in terminal?06:21
xualraune: Yep, I have all of that in my xorg.conf06:21
jduckett2.6.24.X, the mac80211 and iwlwifi modules were built-in to the kernel06:21
jduckettRegardless of kernel version, you have to install the microcode for the card. It should be in the Ubuntu repositories06:21
alraunexu: save, close gedit ...06:22
jduckettanyone have any experience in this area??06:22
bazhangLenaud01, not seen any errors related to that api; did you follow all the steps as in the wiki?06:22
unoparooni-mobile__, they are specific to filesystems not necessarily partitions -- and you can use the old style device names too06:22
macoarooni-mobile__: yes you can do that but UUIDs make it so that if the naming changes (2 releases ago that disk might have been /dev/hda2) it doesn't break06:22
unopmaco, 2 releases ago? what do you mean?06:22
xualraune: ya?06:22

alraunearooni-mobile__: uuids are unique descritors: if for example you add a drive or put one out ,the whole hdxx-stuff gets messed, but not the remaining uuids06:23
arooni-mobile__unop, does UUID change if you physically move the drive06:23
normlomancpk1 when I type mount /dev/scd1 it says no medium found06:23
Lenaud01I did bazhang did you get imageflow to go?06:24
debian_akroydmaco: true with some systems, however on one of the systems i had, ubuntu 7.04 onto the current release sees my hard disks as /dev/hda and they are ide disks06:24
bazhangLenaud01, am using hardy here06:24
unopmaco, libata really does not affect how UUIDs are generated or stored on the device .. so i don't see how it would have been different06:24
Lenaud01maybe why06:24

dragon31337 h2x0rz06:25
smitPLEASE!!!06:25
normlomanlemme type that in06:25
macounop: right, that's why you should use UUIDs, because when libata changed if you used /dev/hda naming, you were screwed06:26
smitlegend2440, yes06:26
cpk1normloman: also if you have more than one cd drive you might be using the wrong cd drive06:26
debian_akroydkev_: if i were me i would just wait until they come out with .26 in the repo. but when i compiled kernels for gentoo, i used genkernel (i think thats its name)06:26

bazhangDethray, wubi?06:29
macokev_: we have the latest security upgrades06:29
unopmaco, unmountable really means nothing, if you were to create a new partition or even add a new physical disk .. you affect the naming/numbering of devices06:29
