Atheossapiensthe internal card works with routers that dont have encryption turned on00:27
crimsunAtheossapiens: AFAIK you'll have to use ndiswrapper.  b43 does not support it yet.00:27
Atheossapiensit works with the wl.o broadcom driver00:28
Atheossapiensdoes that mean that only non-secure routers will work with that driver00:29
gooseiberApparently Netgear now do an open source router00:29
crimsunno, that is not the case, Atheossapiens.00:29
gooseiberI was looking at getting one00:29
guidoI'm having a BadMatch Error with KWin, anyone knows how to fix this?00:29
Atheossapienscrimsun: the wl driver works great for non-secure routers00:30
gooseiberSome routers provide for mac code locking even without WPA00:30
crimsunAtheossapiens: what is "wl"?  ndiswrapper?  b43?  b43legacy?00:30
Atheossapiensi have a versalink 327w router/modem. wl is the broadcom driver that comes with ubuntu00:31
crimsunAtheossapiens: so...b43?00:31
crimsunAtheossapiens: (you can check via lsmod)00:31
Atheossapiensall it says is wl00:33
Atheossapiensit is a proprietary driver00:33

inavathello.  I've been messing around with aticonfig and other stuff, trying to get my svideo-out to work.   I must've screwed something up, because the next time I rebooted, I just get a black screen.  When I went into recovery and had it reinitialize my xorg.conf, it worked again, but I'm not using the fglrx drivers anymore.01:02

BluesKajTaladan:  sorry , open konq /settings/configure konq/file associations/inode/directory/ choose konq , move up ..same goes for system directory01:06
ubottuDolphin, or more properly D3lphin, is the new default file manager for Kubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon. If you would like to make Konqueror your default file manager again, go to Konqueror - Settings menu - Configure Konqueror - File Associations and change the association for inode/directory and inode/system_directory to Konqueror at the top rather than Dolphin.01:07

guidoWhenever I logout or restart from KDE, KDM crashes and the computer just hangs in there until I hit ctrl-alt-backspace01:18
guidothoughts anyone?01:18
Agent_bobguido yeah  try  ^C  to see if it's a command loop01:18
Agent_bobwhen it hangs01:18
guidook, I'll give that a try now, brb01:19
Agent_bob 01:20
TaladanAgent_bob: what version of K3b do you have?01:21
substratewhenever I try to startx it tells me it doesn't have write access to ~/.ICEauthority.  This started happening after I tried to install KDE4 using "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install kubuntu-kde4-desktop".  I'm wondering if a bunch of permissions got messed up because I used sudo?  Wouldn't this happen to everyone that tries to run that command (pulled from kubuntu's website)01:23
guidoAgent_bob: I tried that ctrl c thing but nothing happened01:23
guidoI had to ctrl-alt-del to kill kdm01:23
Taladansubstrate: you can always try sudo chmod 777 ~/.ICEauthority01:25
substrateyea i was thinking of doing that last night but I haven't used linux in so long I forgot the chmod mask (or whatever you call it)01:27
substratei'll try right now01:27
inavathi.. I'm trying to get svideo out.  I have a mobility x1400.  I run the "ATI Catalyst Control Center", which is supposed to auto-detect the svideo out as a second display, but it doesn't01:27
TaladanAnd Agent_bob Looks (from googling) like this is a known bug with K3b, but I'm not finding a fix for it yet01:27
substratelemmie restart x .. brb01:29
Agent_bobguido i hope you mean  ctrl+alt+backspace   not ctrl+alt+del    ?01:29
guidoAgent_bob: nope.. had to do ctrl-alt-del, it just froze there without responding01:30
guidoAgent_bob: I did the chkdisk afterwards01:30
Agent_bobTaladan don't waste your time.    it's not a bug per'se cause it works when i boot with *buntu defaults  but not in  lean/mean mode.01:30

Agent_bobto both questions   ^01:32
substrateyea i still get a bunch of other errors after kde starts about write permissions.  anyway, i installed kde4 using the command from the kubuntu website but if I just type "sudo startx" at the console it starts kde 3, not kde 4.  any ideas?01:33
Taladanhm, well, the only other suggestion that I saw that might work is set multisession mode off and set it to DAO burning.01:33
Agent_bobsubstrate own your home.   you probably did something with sudo that you should only do with kdesu01:33
Agent_bobTaladan i'll let you know when i find it.   and i will find it.   thanks for the effort.01:34

substratei use startx but it doesn't start kde401:45
Agent_bobsubstrate sudo startx ????  why on earth would you start it as root ?01:47
substratethe reason is that i cannot start it otherwise01:47
substratei get the kstartupconfig error01:47
substrateand the .ICEauthority error01:48
substratethis was all after trying to install kde4 as root01:48
Agent_bobyeah becaue root owns you now....01:48
substrateme thinks it overwrote a bunch of files with root permissions01:48
substratebut kubuntu's fucking website said to do it that way01:48
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about sisusb01:49
Agent_bobyes.  so kill xorg   and run   sudo chown -R $USER $HOME01:49
Agent_bobthen without sudo....     startx and see if it errors01:49
substrateAgent_bob:  do you run kde3 or 4?01:49
Agent_bobsubstrate not if i can help it i don't01:49
substrateconsole or gnome / other?01:50

* mlLK just installed kdebase, kdm, and xorg w/ apt-get on a heron server and the login screen displays (along w/ a functioning cursor) but doesn't respond01:50
Agent_bobi run console and typo mostly01:50
mlLKis there a way to install kdebase bypassing acpi ?01:51
substratei just wanted to see kde4 ... that's all .... that's all ... so simple.  no ?01:51
* Agent_bob couldn't see why kdebase would depend on acpi01:52
mlLKi've had the same issues before w/ ubuntu-desktop and i would often boot the live cd to safe-graphics mode and this fixed my problem01:52
substrateright on Agent_bob that works good01:52
mlLKcept i don't really know what to do in context of apt-get01:52
Agent_bobsubstrate for the record.   if you ever have to startx as root   either use   sudo -i    and then startx   or  sudo su - startx   or something that will set the full environment to root   and not just execute the command as root....   saves lots of headaches   "MINR"01:54
simuladoes anyone have an opinion on the best video card for kubuntu (x86)?01:55
simulai'm swapping out the guts of my main box01:55
substrateafter the kernerl and stuff is done loading, what file does it read from to start x and your wm and stuff?  it seems to start up x in a different way than "startx" does from the console.  fresh boot = kdm with kde4 look, but startx from console starts kde301:55
Agent_bobsubstrate init  and the inittab file in /etc01:55
substratekk tu me go look01:56
Agent_bobsubstrate don't ask me to explain the "upstart" aproach that *buntu now uses.  i'm a sysV init guy01:56
Agent_bobsimula yeah i have one.     best is the card that will do what you want it to do at a reasonable price and is fully supported by FOSS      that last phrase would exclude ati and nvidia01:58
ubottufreedom is important. Ubuntu is as free as we can make it, which means mostly free software. See http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html and http://www.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/licensing01:58
Agent_bobfirst link   ^01:58
simulaso agent_bob, what card would that be?02:00
simulai would love to grab an open spec card, but i don't know of any02:01
substrateso, let me get this straight, kdm is the kde desktop manager, and it controls which version of kde starts?  if i wanted to start kde4 instaed of kde3 i would have to modify some sort of kdm config file?02:02
Agent_bobdoesn't have to be open spec,  just fully supported.     i.e.  if they will only furnish propritary driver for linux    avoid it if possable.   if it's supported natively  in linux and some are,  then see if it meets the other conditions02:03
Agent_bobsubstrate no.   kdm is kde's   "display" manager.   i.e. it's responsable for the graphical login process02:04
substrateok, so for some reason i have kdm4 running (i.e. the new look with smooth black finishes on the windows) but after the login is complete kde3 starts.02:05
Agent_bobsubstrate and no.  no modification should be required.  there should be an option at login to "change session"  and you should see the kde4 listed02:05
substrateoh yes i remember that now.  i saw that a couple days ago.  the fonts are microscopic in kdm for some reason so i haven't bothered looking at it again02:06
Agent_boball  *dm's try to respect the users "default session"02:06
substrateanother thing screwed up =)02:06
substrateis it possible to logout of kde back to kdm without shutting down x ?02:06
substrateso that i can start kde4 instead of 3 ?02:07
Agent_bobsubstrate for magnifying  try   ctrl+alt+-    and use the mouse to mover the screen around02:07
substrateok brb02:07
Agent_bobsubstrate in theory yes.   in practice   well  not exactly02:07
Agent_bobsubstrate let me explain that02:08
Agent_bobsubstrate when you select to "end current session"  it does kill the xserver and restart it back to the kdm login.    it's a quick blink  that most don't notice02:09
substrateoh ok i see02:09
Agent_bobbut it is actually killing x there.  or "resetting" it.02:09
substrateyou would have to edit the logout process02:10
substrateto not kill x then02:10
substrateif its possible02:10
Agent_bobyeah.  but there is no point in it.02:10
substrateyea most ppl wouldnt bother02:10
substrate1 sec brb going to try kde402:10
Agent_bobthat half second saved wouldn't be worth the added "possable left running" processes02:10
simulaagent_bob, do you know of any video cards that meet that criteria?02:12
Agent_bobi think i will build another initramfs image that doesn't use udev and test k3b with static device nodes.   "Agent_bob isn't a udev fan anyway"02:12

nonewmsgsgenii i downlaoded a linux program from a torrent and it didnt work but it seems like some of my other torrent saves are going to my desktop instead of my normal save spot.  i checked and ktorrent is set to put them in a different folder, or am i just being paranoid?03:07
geniinonewmsgs: No windows trojans can infect linux. However some macros which may come in a MS doc file that call Visual Basic might register as some trojan. But they can't really do to much03:08
nonewmsgsgenii i am not talking about wine i am talking about installing a tarball03:08
geniinonewmsgs: Firefox will put downloads in one spot and your torrent programs will each put their files in their own specific locations03:09
XJmannonewmsgs: You should be fine03:09
nonewmsgsthanks guys.  i knew i should be fine but to hear it again always helps03:09
Schuenemanngenii, is there anything I could do now about that screensaver?03:11
geniiSchuenemann: Is te source fr it available from repositories?03:12
SchuenemannI downloaded from kde-look.org03:12
Schuenemannhere: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/KMatrix3d?content=5248303:13
geniiSchuenemann: Gimme a while. I'll look into it03:13
geniiSchuenemann: It says the source versions are for Kubuntu Edgy (6.10)03:15
geniiAnd also AMD64 kubuntu Which I figure likely for 6.10 version also03:16
Schuenemannwhere do you see that?03:16
geniiSchuenemann: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=18820403:16
SchuenemannI thought source codes like... independed from a particular version03:16
geniiSchuenemann: Not particularly. The stock or vanilla sources are "patched" for specific flavours like debian or so on. Because libraries and other things are different03:17
geniiSchuenemann: Anyhow on that same page is an i386 deb file which *might* work03:18
Schuenemannwell, how would someone not having those platforms compile it, then?03:18
Schuenemannthe .deb is for edgy03:18
geniiSchuenemann: You can try install and see if it groans about dependencies or such.03:19
Schuenemannlet me see03:19
Schuenemannit seems to be working03:20
Schuenemannand it's beautiful :D03:21
Schuenemannthank you03:21

alt-kubuntu is ubuntu with kde instead of gnome ?03:51

geniiDarkrift411: If you shut the machine down while it was applying updates and this is the root cause of the issue, this will compell it to finish configuring whatever it was in the middle of configuring.07:23
Darkrift411nah, that didnt happen07:23
Darkrift411i rebooted normally07:23
chackal_sjcJucato: but do you know?07:23
Darkrift411and last updates i did myself (was some php updates but nothing else)07:23
geniiDarkrift411: OK. Have you scanned the drive for errors?07:23
Darkrift411no because fsck needs it unmounted07:23
Darkrift411and its mounted07:23
Darkrift411nobody can tell me any other way :(07:23

chackal_sjcJucato: ok, is .xsession a bash script?07:29

geniiDarkrift411: Did you try to change permissions of the users home folder or similar lately?07:30
Jucatochackal_sjc: probably, or a shell script (not necessarily bash), that's sourced by X07:30

MeOr are you in an environment?07:30
MeYOu said it won't load right?07:30
Darkrift411told me to create /usr/java, download the .bin and run it. which i did07:30
Darkrift411i then installed a java web stats program07:31
Darkrift411what wont load?07:31
Darkrift411it loads07:31
chackal_sjcJucato: okay.. one stuff.. I need to start a program as root.. so the autoload will not handle it, right?07:31
Darkrift411but after it loads, nothing works07:31
geniiDarkrift411: Does: ls -la /home/darkrift       show all the things there as owned by user darkrift and group darkrift ?07:32
Mexinit, you would load as root.07:32
Jucatochackal_sjc: if you put it in /usr/share/env/, it might. if it doesn't, not sure how07:32
Darkrift411well, one thing is owned by root and in group darkrift, but thats my .lightscribe folder07:32
Darkrift411and that works fine07:33

geniiWhat is the editor named?07:46
carib909genii I was using kate07:47
geniicarib909: Did you by accident use   sudo        to run it sometime previous?07:47
carib909genii sudo kate /etc/samba/smb.conf07:47
geniiInstead of for instance in this case proper kdesu07:47
carib909I sure have. Is that a bad thing?07:48
geniiYes, a bad thing but not irrepairable07:48
carib909genii please advise why and what to do next time...07:48
Darkrift411i created a new user using useradd, how do i make it so that user can be loaded with kde?07:49
Darkrift411right now i get "could not start kstartupconfig. check your installatoin"07:49
geniicarib909: Always run KDE graphical apps with kdesu when you wish to use them in admin mode. For gnome apps always use gksu07:49
carib909genii so now I broke something... how do I fix it?07:50
geniicarib909: What is the username you login as? Things in their home directory need to be changed all back to their permissions regarding kate07:50
carib909ok, so if I used "carib", how do I reset permissions?07:51
geniicarib909: Then like:   sudo  chown -R carib:carib /home/carib/.kde07:52
carib909genii sudo and not kdesudo?07:52
Darkrift411kde has no reinstall or restore?07:52
geniicarib909: sudo is for command line commands. kdesu if for running graphical apps as temporary elevated privelege07:53
carib909genii ok, let me try it..07:53
geniiDarkrift411: Unfortunately not really. You might want to last ditch try  something like sudo apt-get install --reinstall kubuntu-desktop07:53
Darkrift411will that require internet?07:54
geniiEmphasis on "last ditch" part07:54
Darkrift411well at this point, im there07:54
geniiDarkrift411: Not usually07:54
Darkrift411im in 3 linux/kde related channels and nobody has any other ideas07:54
geniiDarkrift411: You might want to make cdrom the only repository07:54
carib909genii error says "chown: invalid option -- r"07:55
geniicarib909: upper case Rwith a - directly before it07:56
geniieg:   -R07:56
Darkrift411fsck forced a check on my drive... letting that finish07:56
carib909genii it accepted that command07:57
carib909now kdesudo kate?07:57
Darkrift411if i boot to a kde live cd, is there a way to restore or anything?07:57
Darkrift411i cant believe there is nothing i can do here07:57
geniicarib909: Good. alt-f2    then kdesu kate /file/place/name.here07:57
Darkrift411this isnt windows..... it shouldnt just die on me07:57
Darkrift411and yes..... drive errors it seems07:57
geniicarib909: kdesu is generally better at this time to use than kdesudo07:57
Darkrift411exception Emask and buffer io errors on sda107:58
geniiDarkrift411: Hmm. Maybe on partition if separate than / whic could be /home or so07:58
carib909genii type exactly that? or do I need to change to specific file names?07:59
Darkrift411automatic fsck failed. manual must be peformed then system restarted, root fs mounted in r/o mode.07:59
geniicarib909: Well, put for instance /etc/fstab   if you want to edit /etc/fstab    or so on. Use common sense07:59
geniiDarkrift411: Weird, we already did this07:59
Darkrift411last check took less then a second08:00
Darkrift411this one took a few minutes08:00
Darkrift411and the manual one im doing now is taking longer08:00
carib909genii my sense is not as common as yours. I don't know what file I need to edit to fix the problem; I am guessing /etc/samba//smb.conf?08:01
Darkrift411well, the good news is I have a dead laptop (faulty power jack) that i can take the 120g drive from and use08:01
geniiMaybe some errors developed in the meantime08:01
Darkrift411problem is i have my install perfect :(08:01
Darkrift411how do i make fsck fix problems if fs is in read only mode?08:02
Darkrift411live cd?08:02
simianyone compiled a custom kernel here?08:02
geniicarib909: If you are trying to configure samba then likely /etc/samba/smb.conf      yes. However edit with caution. In command line after saving changes run: testparm       to see that the file is corrctly formed before restarting the samba process08:02
geniiDarkrift411: No, the fsck is run as root and so doesn't care about ro mounts. It is examining the /dev/name  usually08:03
Darkrift411i c08:03
Darkrift411so it CAN fix errors?08:03
geniiDarkrift411: The readonly on mounted partition is so that things are not dynamically changing on the partition being scanned WHILE in process of scanning08:04
Darkrift411i c08:04
geniiThis leads to circular errors, etc08:04
simiis mysql requird in kubuntu? who uses it? can i stop it to start or remove it?08:08
geniisimi: 1) no    2) many people use it    3) you can stop or start it by it's startup script in /etc/init.d like: sudo /etc/init.d/mysqld stop        4) You can remove it through the package manager08:11
simigenii: thx, i will stop it starting automaticaly, maybe i will need it sometime08:12
simigenii: i belived that is posible that some kde apps store data in mysql tables08:13
geniisimi: Yes, there are many applications which can do this08:13
simigenii:  but not the core application no?08:14
geniisimi: You mean KDE itself?08:14
simigenii: i seen you here almost all the time, are you working for kubuntu ?08:14
simigenii: yes i meant kde iteself08:15
geniisimi: No, I am not even a member yet although likely I could be accepted for that if I made an application. I just use ubuntu a lot and so like to assist and socialise a bit while at my regular work, or sometimes from home as now.08:16
simigenii: what i like in kde are the apps :kate, amarok, adept , , nice application,08:16
geniisimi: As for kde itself using mysql , i have not an idea.08:16
simigenii: then i will try to see what happens, o you compiled ever a kernel?08:17
geniisimi: When i used other unix-like operating systems I compiled many kernels. But I do not bother much in ubuntu since this makes all the packages unavailable08:18

lebahi !08:18
genii!hi | leba08:18
ubottuleba: Hi! Welcome to #kubuntu!08:18
lebaIf I want to copy the entirely contents from a windows partition from a free one using linux which command I should be using please ?08:19
simigenii: when you compiled the kernel did you tried to optimize it and build your drivers into the kernel to not be loaded as modules08:19
geniisimi: Yes, i did those things.08:20
geniileba: You want to copy your windows files to an empty partition someplace?08:20
jdbartis there a way to make my laptop moniter not come on when it's closed and i push the multimedia buttons on the front?08:20
lebagenii, yep.08:20
simigenii: and did your kernel boot faster? i made the same thing but i have problems with the sound card and network and maye other08:21
Darkrift411so those errors in fsck mean hd failure and not just bad files?08:21
lebagenii, in reality I want to move everything from d: to c: for example.08:21
Darkrift411meaning unfixable?08:21
geniileba: There are 2 possible answers depending on what you intend. The C: and D: ideas/metaphors do not exist as such in linux08:22
simigenii: i do not know what steps, data to collect to find out where is the problem08:22
geniiDarkrift411: My guess is yes impending HD booboo soon08:22
genii!compile | simi08:22
ubottusimi: Compiling software from source? Read the tips at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompilingSoftware (But remember to search for pre-built !packages first)08:22
lebagenii, yeah I know. I want to copy/move *everything* which is in sdb to sdb for example.08:23
geniileba: In linux you splice devices to a directory name then they are available when you list the contents of that directory. This is called mounting08:23
lebagenii, how do you call a hdd partition on Linux ?08:24
geniileba: If the destination is same size/larger you could use dd. Other option is to mount both partitions (source and destination) then to do an archival type cp command from one to the other08:24
geniileba: hdd in linux normally would be 4th IDE device08:25
geniieg: slave on second IDE cable08:25
ubuntu_I wanna mount an encrypted filesystem, but after giving the password the system says: IOCTL: LOOP_SET_DEVICE Unknown Argument08:26
geniileba: dd usage is simplest method, does a bit by bit copy including master boot record and so on.08:26
lebagenii, if I choose to use cp command it would transfer *everything* from one partition to another ?08:26
simigenii: i will restart now , i will try to extract more info about the problem08:27
ubuntu_anyone an idea?08:27
geniileba: Some Windows names are not compatible and also there is a recursing depth of directories so perhaps not all things would get copied08:27
lebagenii, so there is no way to copy the full contents from one windows partition to another using linux ?08:28
elo_u'll get errors on certain files08:28
elo_i always do08:28
lebaand how about a *blind* copy...08:29
geniileba: The dd command then. Syntax is like:  sudo dd if=/dev/inputplace of=/dev/outputplace08:29
lebasomething like copy everything08:29
geniileba: There is nothing like a "blind copy". The closest thing is like cp -dpR source destination08:30
lebagenii, but the dev units have to have the same size or doesn't matter ?08:30
geniileba: But cp chokes on directory dpths Windows allows as well as non standard characters in filenames and directories like !@#$%^&*   and so on08:31
lebagenii, dd will solve my problem, do you think ?08:31
geniileba: So log as destination device is larger than source device dd makes an exact copy of original. If the destination is larger, the extra space becomes unpartitioned hd area08:32
geniileba: You can use dd to copy a HD to a file as well, not just another partition08:32
geniileba: Then you can loopmount the file as if it was a HD08:32
lebagenii, both source and destination devices have free amouth of space.08:33
geniileba: With dd it doesnt know about "free space" on source. If sda1 has 100Gb free it doesn't care it copies those 100Gb as well to the destination08:33
geniiIt's an *exact* copy08:34
geniileba: So if source partition is say 50Gb but 40 is unused  you still need 50Gb or larger partition to copy it to, not 10Gb08:34
geniileba: To use dd to copy to a filename, use like:   sudo dd if=dev/sda1 of=/somedirectory/filename.img      where in this case sda1 gets archived to a file called filename.img   which could be mounted like a hard dive08:36
genii* hard drive08:36
lebagenii, sorry but I don't think I follow your idea. Why create a .img file ?08:38
lebagenii, what I intent to do is copy windows from one disk partition to another.08:38
geniileba: Because you don't for instance need to have a partition set aside to devote to the copy of your files08:38
geniileba: You can restore a file image of a hard drive back to a partition for instance as well08:39
geniiwith:   sudo dd if=/home/me/myoldwindrive.img /dev/sda1            for instance08:40
lebagenii, I could use xcopy from windows or robocoy from vista, but I was thinking in to use a neutral system to do that...08:40
geniileba: I've already shown you the most powerful archiving tool there is08:40

lebagenii, if I intend to download a ubuntu live cd version can I use the desktop one or alternate would be better or none of those ?08:45
dotancohenI had to compile lots of other stuff too08:45
dotancohenLike exiv2 libgphoto and others08:45
dotancohenI did compile kipiplugins, but I cannot get around this error08:46
dotancohenAny ideas?08:46
dotancohenLeba, the alternative CD does not have a LiveCD option08:46
dotancohenSo use the Desktop CD08:46
geniileba: The desktop one boots up into a version of ubuntu which runs from the cdrom and allows a nice graphical way to install. This is good for most uses. If problems are experienced then the tactic is to go then to the alternate which offers drivers for more equipment and can work in most scenarios08:46

jdbartis there a way to make my laptop moniter not come on when it's closed and i push the multimedia buttons on the front?08:48
geniidotancohen: I would have recommended instead of svn to only add the deb-src repository of Intrepid Ibex into your sources and then download the alredy patched-for-ubuntu source code and try that under Hardy08:48
dotancohengenii: I am triaging bugs for digikam, so SVN it must be!08:48

=== bascule is now known as [bascule]
dotancohenI doubt that you have a proprietary hard drive!08:51
geniiDarkrift411: At heart they are all either SATA or mini IDE laptop kind. But there are 3 main different kinds of connectors they generally put onto the standard drive for their specific laptop internal plugs08:51
geniiTheir converters can usually be detached with a small Philips scredriver and re-used on a standard drive08:52
geniileba: You're welcome, hope to see you soon here assisting ;)08:53

romunovhow the hell can developers allow this? i don't have time to tinker with my computer all day :/10:15
lebagenii, so the is no way ?10:15
geniiromunov: Does:   mount    command show / mounted as ro  instead of rw  or so?  Possibly /home as ro ?10:15
geniileba: I'm searching for one but no immediate way comes to mind. Normally to compare files the app diff  is used. But it was designed in a way that it wats to load all into memory then compare. So if your swap is smaller than the two things to compare it will always fail horribly.10:17
romunovthis is my fstab file partaining the drive i'm trying write to: /dev/sda1 /data vfat auto,fmask=111,umask=000 0 010:18
lebagenii, yeah, ok. I understand. I will be checking for it as well .10:18

geniiromunov: Try:  sudo mount -o remount -a      instead10:30
romunovmount: you must specify the filesystem type10:31
geniiromunov: If you have something using files or such on the affected mount open right now , close it first since that means system will see it as in use and refuse to un-mount it10:31
romunovi closed all the applications that i think were using the data on the mounted drive10:32

Agent_bobNix3r if you weren't using any disk/fs encription it's probably possable.  assuming you only rebuilt the partition table.   if you reinstalled OS's then not likely11:00

carib909Adept manager says some other application is using the packaging system database (nothing running) and attempts to fix it returns this. http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/30996/  Can anyone help?19:37

ubottuadept is the Kubuntu package manager. Howto: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/AdeptHowto19:38
Taggnostr!adept fix19:38
ubottuIf an APT front-end crashed and your database is locked, try this in a !terminal: « sudo fuser -vki /var/lib/dpkg/lock;sudo dpkg --configure -a »19:38
Taggnostrmaybe this one19:38

carib909no process running19:43
bmk789is there a way i can set a directory for konqueror to not load any previews for files?19:43
PhilRodcarib909: the bot's solution is two commands - the first (presumably) is to find out what processes are using the package list, and the second relies on that having happened successfully19:43
PhilRodcarib909: so the first command is failing (with "unknown option"), which means the second doesn't work19:44
Zopiachow do i get Compiz Fusion working?19:44
PhilRodso, the upshot is, we should go look at "man fuser" to see if we can work out what the correct command is19:44
enautcarib909: simple thing could be restarting... if possible19:45
carib909Thanks guys. The first command worked19:46

ubottuTo replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « dpkg --get-selections > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo dpkg --set-selections < my-packages && sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade » - See also !automate20:17
geniiThe clone thing will replicate your packages. If you copy /home into same username on new box all else should stay same as well20:18
Darkrift411except that part of my home folder is corrupted :(20:18
Darkrift411something kde related anyways20:18
geniiWell at least the previous packages will get reinstalled. Wallpaper and other preferences aren't horrible to customise again one time20:19
