Operatorkindofabuzz, it plays for 2 seconds and then turns gray, the sound carries on for a further 2 seconds then stops00:01

plouffemy audio card is not listed at alsa-project.org . What is the best way to go from here and can I use alsa at all? I know that I used alsamixer and it did affect my sound. But I keep getting sound problems. I'm confused.00:01
stormzenkitche: (yes, I know that they disappeared) -- xserver-xorg-video-nv is already the newest version.00:01
gary4gardblick: if you still want ipv6 , read: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IPv600:02
mgrantdblick: there are a few around (and you get bonus points for joining IRC with a v6 hostmask ;) )00:02
Operatorkindofabuzz, yeah i was in here originally asking for help how to install it, but someone said it didnt exist and to stop being immature00:02
Drk_Guywinkleer, go to my pm00:02
kindofabuzzOperator: said flash 10 doesn't exist?00:02
Operatoryup, lemme find quote00:02
crimsunstormzen: I'm pretty sure you're mistaking nv for something else.  The only 'nv' I'm aware of is the X driver, not a kernel module.00:02

Operatoroh quote has gone of screen, never mind00:03

FalcHello, I'm trying to get my sound working correctly in Ubuntu on my EeePC. However, every now and again I cannot hear anything or set the volume. This is due to Ubuntu "switching" to snd_pcsp as opposed to snd_hda-intel. The forum search I did pointed me to blacklisting snd-pcsp. But I can01:39
Falc't find outhow to do it.01:39
SergeantPonyalraune: it updated some of the files01:39
obidiahinavat: deep in the bowels of the video driver you can force it on01:39
alrauneSergeantPony: sudo apt-get update  ....01:39
inavatwell I tried that.  the problem is it's two different tvs.  One, which has a screwed up image, has an svideo-in.  The other, which works fine, doesn't have svideo in, so I wanted to use the AV hub.  So I booted ubuntu with it connected to the broken PC.. then unplugged and ran to the other tv and plugged it into the AV hub01:39

mbrigdanBlaqlight: yup, recreate folders. I think... Thanks01:46
trueboskoSorry, meant to say ATI :)01:46

crimsunSergeantPony: or comment it out, yes.01:48
Blaqlightmbrigdan: was it checked when you saw it just then? yes or no?01:48
inavatobidiah: with the radioshack converter, you still need to cold-reboot right?01:48
Mecha25truebosko: I can give you my xorg, but part of the config is in the Catalyst Control center, and you have to reset the thing every boot.  Plus, it only works with one orientation, and with 1280x800 + 1280x1024 resolutions01:48
alrauneSergeantPony: rturn from :  modprobe -l | grep snd | grep pci01:48

bartekDoes anyone know what repo I need to get BitchX?02:16
CheeseGardenerCould someone here give me a hand choosing a power supply for my dual boot system?02:16
bartekeverone says "universe" but I have a bunch of universe entries in my sources.list so that makes no sense to me02:16
Flannelbartek: BitchX is abandonware.  It isn't in a repo.02:16
JadewolfGuys, would ubuntu be a good OS for using to install on a P1-233MMX laptop with 64mb ram a webcam? I'm trying to setup a commandline "security" camera with it.02:16
bartekok..I need a good irc client then :-)02:16
Flannelbartek: Try irssi02:17

TiredWolfbartek, there are four main repositories: 1) hardy, the main one 2) hardy-updates, bugfixes 3) hardy-security, security fixes02:17
soldatsgive it a shot you may like it02:17
bartekOh I see02:17
TiredWolfbartek: then Main, Restricted, Universe and Multiverse are *components*02:17
bartekComponents meaning?02:17
TiredWolfbartek: for each component you want enabled, you should have all three repositories02:17
TiredWolfbartek: it means it's a part of a repository02:17

ludwighey all, any body get the gtx260 nvidia card working from any stock repository02:18
CheeseGardenerO dpm02:18
TiredWolfbartek: in other words, if you have Universe only enabled in the "hardy" repository, but not in the "hardy-updates" repository, then you won't get bugfixes for Universe packages02:18
CheeseGardenerI don't use the GTX 200 series ludwig02:18
RatKingXCheeseGardener: what hardware do you have?02:18
bazhang#hardware CheeseGardener02:18
FlannelCheeseGardener: #ubuntu-offtopic would be the appropriate place02:18
CheeseGardenerit is a waste of money02:18
CheeseGardenerI use 2 ATI HD 4850s Crossfire02:18
TiredWolfbartek: so as a rule of thumb, you should have every needed component enabled in every repository, and that's why you see Universe in many places02:18

mirandais there a version of ubuntu where I can install with less memory because I am deleting all of the files to make more memory02:21
chao1miranda try xubuntu02:21
Ximalxubuntu mm iranda02:21
mirandachao1: thanks02:21
TiredWolfchao1, well, i guess mount it read only, for a start... you don't really want to write on it if it's failing02:22
bazhangmiranda, how little ram we talking02:22
chao1how do I do that?02:22
mirandaIIRC 64 MB bazhang02:22
TiredWolfchao1: sudo mount /dev/whatever /mnt/whatever -o ro - i believe02:22

Blaqlightbartek: its awesome once you get used to it... < former xchat user02:23
bazhangmiranda, 64mb may not do it; fluxbuntu perhaps but even that is a stretch02:24
Blaqlightmiranda: prolly a little faster, being as though xfce uses less rescources than gnome.02:24
bartekBlaqlight: oh I bet...I remember loading up VIM for the first time and being very confused. Now I swear by it, this seems like the same thing02:24
bazhanglots of gtk stuff in xubuntu though02:24
mirandabazhang: I am updating from windows 9802:24
Blaqlightbartek: Im still lost in vim.02:24
chao1this is what it put on screen: http://paste.ubuntu.com/30726/02:25
chao1... and its /media/whatever instead of /mnt/whatever for those taking notes (in ubuntu)02:26
TiredWolfchao1: well, actually, it's wherever there is a valid directory :) but yeah, it's supposed to be /media02:26
enno_Blaqlight: get the gecko cab file from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=6241&package_id=195269 and extract it using cabextract to .wine/drive_c/Program Files/02:27
chao1yeah :)02:27
TiredWolfchao1: try forcing ext2 by adding the "-t ext2" option. but if it can't understand it's an ext2 partition... tough luck i'm afraid02:27

swamptinright, stoopid question, and I'm assuming you can, but... a lot of advice I've gotten has been like "<command> && <command>" in relation to installs etc. etc. Can you que up any sort/number/variation of commands in that way and let it run?02:28
Blaqlightenno_: it gets about 1/3rd of the way through and then mysteriously and without warning, dies.02:28
bazhangpiratelordx, check #winehq and appdb02:28
obidiahmiranda: is your problem a shortage of RAM or a shortage of hard drive space02:28

ubottupiratelordx: The Wine Application DB is a database of applications and help for !Windows programs that run under !WINE: http://appdb.winehq.org02:28
soldatsmiranda: honestly as much as i hate to say it, you may need a different distro capable of handling little ram that you have. you may be able to try xubuntu with someting even smaller than fluxbox. possibly xubuntu with DWM may work. youll need some time to get DWm to work for you though02:28

ManualOverDozer8when will flash plugin for mozilla ever get fixed ? or is there one that works ?02:50
Blaqlightjeeves__: perhaps your link location is bad, try another. or open firefox and try google.com to see if your internet connection is working.02:50
lucentLinkManDX: look into some software called "timidity" there are a lot of posts about it on ubuntu forums02:50
fdelucent: most use brasero or k3b ... personally, I just use 'wodim --data file1 file2 file3'02:50
Flanneljeeves__: Thats your problem (hostname issues)02:51
chao1TiredWolf: thanks02:51
alraun1nickelodiun: did you try boot options, e.g. acpi=off ?02:51
jeeves__Blaqlight, it's comming back with pam_auth error02:51

chao1I learned it in my linux class02:51
FlannelAdantan_Alex: which version?02:51
Adantan_Alexthe one before 8.04?02:51
LinkManDXlucent: thanks, i'll check that out02:51
Blaqlightjeeves__: listen to Flannel02:51
alraun1cxo: didn't understand your question02:51
FlannelAdantan_Alex: http://releases.ubuntu.com/7.10/02:51
Adantan_Alexthats it? ty02:51
jeeves__Flannel, thanks02:52
nickelodiunI was told it was that ubuntu did not recongnized my hard drive\02:52
ManualOverDozer8the previous was 7.01 i believe02:52
fdechao1: what do you want to know about it?02:52
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about info02:52
lucentnickelodiun: it's possible that your computer uses a chipset not yet supported by the installer02:52
fdeManualOverDozer8: 7.0402:52
aileanguys, i want to reinstall windows so i can use my iphone.  at present i have 2 partitions, both of which are linux.  how can i tape over one while keeping my current working linux partition selectable from a menu?02:52
nickelodiunwhat can I do?02:52
alraun1nickelodiun: can you run ubu as live system ?02:53
Blaqlightomg this wine gecko installer may actually finish downloading the file for the first time.02:53
cxoI'm install ubuntu using a pxe image i found on this site http://wiki.koeln.ccc.de/index.php/Ubuntu_PXE_Install however the installer is downloading packages from the net, which is gonna take ages since my connection is slow, I already have 8.04 disc downloaded and placed on an nfs share, how do i get the installer to use it?02:53
gurenManualOverDozer8: flashplugin-nonfree works fine with me02:53
Flannelfde, ManualOverDozer8, 7.10 was directly before, 7.04 was one before that.02:53
jeeves__Flannel, all of them show up as "Pennie2"02:53
urbanmonkeyok, possibly stupid question, under 7.10 i could write to my ext3 usb drive, i've done a clean install of 8.04.1, and now i can't write to the same drive... what changed?02:53
ManualOverDozer8fde: is there an archived one that he can download 7.04 ?02:53
nickelodiunnada, i does not work02:53
chao1i have it running. TiredWolf told me what I needed. However Now I need to mount it02:53
aileanguys, i want to reinstall windows so i can use my iphone.  at present i have 2 partitions, both of which are linux.  how can i tape over one while keeping my current working linux partition selectable from a menu? if i can't do this i'll just go back to windows.02:53
nickelodiunit does not work as live cd02:53
lucentnickelodiun: if it's not supported, there's not a lot you can do except wait for it to be supported.   if instead there is some other issue happening, then you need to do some more research02:53
Flanneljeeves__: Can you open up another terminal and sudo successfully?02:53
fdeManualOverDozer8: yes... but I forget the link... why do you want an old version though?02:53
ubottuDon't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. You can search https://help.ubuntu.com or http://wiki.ubuntu.com while you wait. Also see !patience02:53
jeeves__Flannel, no.  as well, add/remove programs wizard locks up.02:54
fdeFlannel: What is the link for EOL versions of Ubuntu (say for supported upgrades etc)02:54
lucentnickelodiun: I find that Ubuntu Hardy is workable on about 80% of computers I try it on02:54
chao1nickelodiun: what kind of issue are you having again02:54
lucentnickelodiun: if it's not working right away, it takes me an average of 4-5 hours to make it working02:54
nickelodiunalraun1: no I can not run live02:54
ManualOverDozer8fde: another person had asked, but, i was interested in know if there was myself.02:54
gurenailean: resize one linux partition then reformat that partition..  reinstall windows on that separate partition then run grub on a livecd02:54
lucentnickelodiun: the easiest thing is if you have access to multiple computers, skip using it on your laptop and use it on another PC02:55
jeeves__I think I'm just going to blow this install away and try it again02:55
cxoalraun1, did you get it now?02:55
ManualOverDozer8nickelodiunL i found some things dont work on LiveCD, but, when you install it, they work just fine02:55
chao1ailean: try this:02:55
Adantan_Alexlol j/k um ty02:55
Blaqlightjeeves__: thats prolly not a bad idea.02:56
lucentjeeves__: your DNS is pooched02:56
lucentjeeves__: that causes X11 apps to stop functioning02:56
aileanchaol, apparently vmware won't allow the iphone to connect02:56
alraun1cxo: yes,I'm not shure as it is possible in debian, what bandwith does the download have ?02:56
jeeves__lucent, is it an easy fix, or should I just blow it away?02:56
gurenailean: how about wine?02:56
lucentjeeves__: X11 is network based.... when DNS goes fubar, practically nothing works02:56
nickelodiunI CAN NOT INSTALL, RUN LIVE OR BOOT UBUNTU.. I have a toshiba A305D-S6831, AMD Turion 64 x2 Dual-core M 3000mb RAM02:56

fdemortal1: you can't, try aptitude02:57

alraun1nickelodiun: try goole: ubuntu  toshiba A305D-S6831 ?02:57
cxoalraun1, not much, 512kbit/s02:57

KohlrakI installed ubuntu server, but it hung when installing LAMP, Mail, and a few other things. So i decided to reboot instead and install from there and even install gnome so i have the fancy things with the desktop ubuntu (without all the extra programs), but i can't seem to get ubuntu to start gnome. Any ideas?02:57
fdeailean: yes02:57
gurenailean: yes, i've tried it before02:57
nickelodiunThis is my last hope, I ve try all02:57
mlLKwhere does aptitude and apt-get store packages?02:58
cgreenquick ?, anyone know of a free inventory management software for ubuntu, im talking product inventory not hardware/software02:58
lucentmlLK: /var/cache/apt something or other02:58
fdemlLK: /var/cache/apt/archive02:58
lucentmlLK: just do apt-get clean though02:58
jeeves__lucent, not here, and I don't have the usal blank CD-RW in my drive either.02:58
BlaqlightmlLK: /var/temp02:58
lucentdon't mess with /var/*02:58
mlLKlucent, why?02:58
Kohlrakcgreen, if there aren't any, there's always gcc02:58
fdeBlaqlight: huh?02:58
carsfde, I'm fairly sure I remember seeing it as a menu option in a previous release, but I don't see the automated repair option in the new graphical installer.  Do you know where it is?02:58
jeeves__lucent, are you going to be on-line for a while (under an hour)?02:58
mlLKi just need to configure something02:58
lucentmlLK: trust me!  you may find it exciting if you don't agree with me02:58
mlLKlucent, yikes02:59
nickelodiun<lucent> I want to install linux on this laptop, so I am stock with Windows?02:59
lucentjeeves__: sure mate, are you in the US?  (checking...)02:59
cgreennickelodiun: if the alternate wont work try going to forum.ubuntu.com somebody had to have had a similiar problem and fixed it, if not try using fedora, puppy, or some other linux to see if it is just ubuntu02:59
alraun1cxo: I've got an up to 16 MB downstream,  but never got more then 800kbit/s in Installations, mostly around 700k/s, so that shouldn't matter02:59
mortal1why would apt-get suggest packages that you can't automatically install via some switch?02:59
mlLKlucent, i just wanna configure vbox02:59
fdecars: Maybe it's just part of the GRUB menu after install, I've never had to use it (shocking considering how much I "play" with this system  :P )02:59
Blaqlightfde: mistype. dyxlexia kicks in when I least expect it.02:59
lusepusterOoops.... I've seemed to remove myself from the sudoers list. Any way to fix this without doing a fresh install?02:59
fdemlLK: Are you getting any errors?02:59
chao1ailean: if you create a windows vm with any flavor of vm emulator you should be able to connect the iPHONE the same way as if you installed it on a different partition02:59
lucentlusepuster: yes02:59
alraun1cox: what a pc is it ?02:59
cgreenKohlrak: gcc???02:59
mlLKfde, haven't attempted it yet02:59
cxoalraun1, you do know,  512kbit/s is like 64kbytes/s ?02:59
fdemlLK: Try it, then ask questions  :/03:00
aileanchao1, ok, but you can't03:00
Tetroheadhey guys. i just dragged my trash bin off my desktop. tried "Keep Aligned" and using gconf-editor03:00
lucentlusepuster: reboot, get to GRUB menu (escape key before 3 second count down), choose recovery mode03:00
lusepusterlucent, you happen to know a solution? ;-)03:00
carsfde, well, there is a rescue option which drops you into a CLI root session, but not what I was thinking of.03:00
lusepusterlucent, thanks...03:00
alraun1cxo: oohmps...03:00
lucentlusepuster: and uh...  that's classic03:00
jeeves__lucent, naaa, I'm in Vancouver Canada.  I'm just going to head back to the house to do a fresh install.  I was going to say if you're around, I'd get your help fixing this video issue03:00
lucentit makes me giggle03:00
fdecars: What exactly is wrong?03:00
Kohlrakcgreen, it's a C compiler. A program to take inventory shouldn't be overly hard to make if you don't need something with a professional logo on it03:00
gurenailean: i can't wait to get my hands on an iphone 3g.. have you tried rhythmbox with it?03:00
Kohlrakmany would consider such a thing to be a hello world program03:00
lusepusterlucent, I know, it's stupid... So in reocovery mode...?03:01
SindaciousWhat would one do to extract a .gz file?03:01
aileanguren, not yet. i just got mine today03:01
lusepusterSindacious, by command line you mean?03:01
cgreenKohlrak: lol im still learning how to program in javascript lol, ya know where i could get some good reading on the subject, i really wanna learn03:01
jeeves__Sindacious, if it's in the dir where you want it.  tar -xvf <file name>03:01
TetroheadHelp me haha. I dragged my trash off my desktop. Can't get it back.03:01
Sindaciouslusepuster, sure03:01
lucentlusepuster: recovery mode is a text console, you can "visudo" and stuff.  It's too verbose to explain in-channel03:01
gurenailean: i see.. there are plugins though in rhythmbox that you might wanna try..03:02
lucentjeeves__: alright03:02
fdeSindacious: tar.gz ? tar xzf whatever.tar.gz03:02
lusepusterif it's not a .tar.gz but just a .gz, use gunzip filename03:02
ManualOverDozer8cgreen check your messages, maybe that will help03:02

Johnnyboth dots are green03:02
mlLKunless optioned03:03

nickelodiunlucent help me out03:03

nickelodiunI will paypal you03:03
mlLKas sudo03:03
fdeTetrohead: You removed it from the panel?03:03
Kohlrakcgreen, it's alot like javascript, only a little more detail is needed for the code. Google "C tutorial" and chances are one of the first links will be enough to learn C. Then it's a matter of using printf and scanf03:03
Tetroheadi dragged it off desktop somehow03:03
Sindaciouslusepuster, gzip: backup_1217058161_4e4d589fcb5688d0.sql.gz: unexpected end of file03:03

bahaawanna to ask about installing a package03:04
lusepusterSindacious, hmmm.... Can't give you an explanation to that, sorry...03:04
fdemlLK: /var/lib/dpkg/ is where most of its info is... I believe it puts the .debs in the same place as apt though.03:04
Kohlrakyes, bahaa?03:04
Johnnyflashplugin is really slow and laggy03:04

ManualOverDozer8fde did you get flash running on hardy ?03:05
fdeManualOverDozer8: yes03:05
alraun1cxo: as far I can see you can try to install a minimal text-based system for a first boot and then gould chenge sources.list to a (local) ftp server...03:05
Tetroheadfde: also tried "Keep Aligned"03:05
ManualOverDozer8what version please ?03:05
DunasQuick, what's the command to install the Nvidia GUI Control Panel?03:05

fdechao1: try !frostwire is <what you think it should say>03:08
fdechao1: Or if it's a wiki page, just sign up and edit it.03:08
ManualOverDozer8fde i may have missed it, but what version flash you get working, and/or method of install ?03:09
fdeManualOverDozer8: 9.0.120-something I think is what was in hardy... I'm using intrepid atm... it has flash 1003:09
qwmi've had enough of these rascals!03:09
ManualOverDozer8fde: i have 10.x in now, and it doesnt work, i will try 9.x03:10
alraun1Dunas: (nick!) type my nick if u answer, otherwise its going under in the other replies |  apt-get install  envyng-core envyng-qt envyng-gtk03:10

TehRikardBasically I need to kill x windows so I can install this video driver :(03:28
lucentYhapster: if you don't have VT extensions, then it is pretty horridly slow03:28
lucentYhapster: it's just qemu then03:28
Yhapsteralraun1: why do i need USB?03:28
sivel27whats firestarter?03:29
namelestheonecan any one help03:29
Yhapsterlucent: qemu > virtualbox?03:29
TehRikardAnybody? How do I kill X-Windows to install these nvidia drivers that keep telling me X has to be shutdown?03:29
havocstormhey guys03:29
ejsilver26sivel27: firestarter is a firewall.03:29
Blaqlightsivel27: it gets a file from the internet and then connects to an irc network.03:29
havocstormanyone know how to add programs to ubuntu startup?03:29
alraun1Yhapster:didn't u say u wanted to connect a player ? or was a phone ?03:29
havocstormsivel27: firestarter is an excellent firewall03:29
cxoTehRikard, logoff, hit ctl+alt+f1, login , install03:29
lucentYhapster: I'm thinking more along the lines of suggesting that you get a 2nd computer just for Windows03:29
TehRikardty cxo03:30
lucentYhapster: an old laptop or something?03:30
sap Hi, I just copied video from a camcorder to my computer and now it is in .avi format . The file size is ~ 12 GB and I want to burn the video to a 4.4 GB dvd . I was trying to find out an option in K3b to convert/compress to a suitable format but could not find anything.  Any recommendations ? or perhaps another program etc ? :)03:30
guido_ I'm trying to fix KDM, whenever I try to close a session or restart the computer it hangs and I have to kill it from another terminal. Any thoughts?03:30
cxoTehRikard, woops one more step, "init 3" before you install03:30
TehRikardI'm also having an issue with a lot of missing drivers.03:30
Yhapsterlucent: won't go over well with the GF.03:30
sivel27what does the file do? from the irc channel? is there any way to allow local network only with this firewall?03:30
Blaqlightfirestarter is a gui front-end for iptables.03:30
Yhapsteralraun1: nope, just trying to watch a TV show online on CTV.ca03:30
cxoTehRikard, then "init 5" to get back03:30
lucentsap: oh, there's not an easy GUI that I can think of03:30
TehRikardtyvm cxo.03:30
lucentsap: you want to split, or just compress?03:30
TehRikardAnyway, I'm having an issue with a lot of missing mainboard drivers.03:31
Yhapsterlucent: and I'm trying to get the GF to like Ubuntu03:31
TehRikardUSB, that jazz.03:31
saplucent, hmm.. compress.. because I just want to put it all on one dvd03:31
TehRikardAny suggestions on how to fix this? I don't see much on ASUS website regarding Linux drivers03:31
alraun1Yhapster:didn't get it right then, sry03:31
guido_sap: you should find some avi to divx converter, try googling that03:31
saplucent, I wouldnt mind a CLI program  as long as I can run a command or two for conversion03:31
lucentsap: it's really, hairy03:31
=== intreq is now known as info
=== info is now known as intreq
cxoTehRikard, really? are you sure?03:32
Blaqlightsivel27: if you install firestarter it should block that file or any others from getting out to the internet without your permission03:32
Blaqlight!iptables | sivel03:32
ubottusivel: 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).03:32
sapguido_,  hmm.. okay but i suspect most of them would be windows based03:32
TehRikardhm, lxo, even after logging out and ctrl alt f1, init 3, it still says im running an x server03:32
lucentYhapster: well, iPod devices work with Rhythmbox now03:32
lucentthat's a start03:32
lucentand the bird is pretty03:32
sivel27excellent, im installing now03:32
lucentwomen love that bird artwork (can I say that?!)03:32
TehRikardWhen using an iPod with Rhythmbox, make SURE you eject/dismount.03:32
* lucent waits for fembots to mow him down03:32
TehRikardI wiped my ipod twice not dismounting.03:32
cxoTehRikard, ctl+alt+f1 is a key combo, that will drop you into a shell, did you get it?03:33
lucentTehRikard: good to know :|03:33
Blaqlightsivel27: also you might want to make your root password alot stronger :P03:33
smultronwhat does a plus sign mean at the end of permissions? -rw-rw----+03:33
Yhapstermost things work. just this one thing. ok thanks guys, off to do QEMU install03:33

havocstormdoes anyone know how to add programs to ubuntu startup?03:34
dubbyon a raid device03:34
sivel27heres a couple of quick qs- this box is my stroage server, and torrent box, can i set up firestarter to allow those progs?03:34
lucentYhapster: it's a front-end gui for managing libvirtd controlled vt stuff, like qemu, kvm, xen03:34
dubbyyet i cannot see my raid device anywhere03:34
guido_sap: yeah, I know.. it's a long shot.. but there's bound to be one out there03:34
dubbybut instead the drives that comprise it03:34
TehRikardAnyone? I can NOT figure out how to kill X to install these nvidia drivers :(03:34
dubbyanyone know how to get raid devices working?03:34
lucenthavocstorm: System | Preferences| Sessions03:34
Bonsterhavocstorm: sys>perf>session03:35
cxoTehRikard, try init 2, then03:35
dubbyTehRikard : synaptic can do it for you03:35
Blaqlightsivel27: it will do whatever you tell it.03:35
havocstormlucent, bonster, thanks03:35
sapguido_, another thing i think might be a hindrance is I probably dont want to burn it in divx format lest it refuses to play on a dvd player03:35
cxoTehRikard, and give it a sec or two, you might see some messages on the screen03:35
havocstormlucent, bonster, hmm, what do I type in the commands?03:35
obidiahhavocstorm: do you have an init script to add?03:35
Blaqlightit being a torrentbox is prolly why it got hacked in the first place to be frank with you.03:35
guido_TehRikard: the nvidia drivers from the website? try the ones from synaptic or apt-get..03:35
havocstormlucent, bonster, hmm, just to run a program I guess03:35
TehRikardSynaptic has drivers? Mmm.03:35
lucenthavocstorm: I have no idea03:35
havocstormobidiah, just to run a program03:36

dubbyanyone with raid devices ?03:36
obidiahhavocstorm: /etc/rc.local03:36
alraun1TehRikard:tried envy ?03:36

guido_sap: how old would the dvd player in question be? as far as I know, most can play divx03:36
cxodubby, i have raid03:36
lucentdubby: softraid, halfraid, or hard raid?03:36
havocstormobidiah, is that the command to run a program?03:36
dubby? well i set it up from bios03:36
obidiahit is a text file03:36
alraun1TehRikard:automatic driver installer for ATI/Nvidia03:36
lucentdubby: probably won't work03:36
lusepusterlucent, thanks for your help before regarding the sudoers list problem. Found out wha my problem was; someone had given me wrong instructions for using usermod, so I'd removed myself from the admin group...03:36
lucentlusepuster: ouch03:36
obidiahit runs as a batch file at startup03:36
sapguido_, hmm.. actually I have no idea.. I am sending a friend's wedding video to his home country  ;D03:37
dubbylucent and why not ?03:37
* lucent laughs hysterically03:37
obidiahput your command before the line with exit 003:37
TehRikardwhere can i find this envy?03:37
lucentlusepuster: can't remember the last time I did that... it's been years03:37
Blaqlightguido_: lol the 8 year old dvd player in my car plays divx, it would have to be really old...03:37
havocstormobidiah, lol, sorru I'm lost, what's the program that runs firestarter?03:37
lucentwatch though my luck... I'll do it tomorrow when I'm half awake03:37
lusepusterlucent, there's a first time for everything - and last, hopefully :-)03:37
Yhapsterlucent: will do thanks!03:37
lucentlusepuster: watch out if you own cats03:38
havocstormobidiah, I found the firestarter program, but which file is the executable?03:38
guido_hey, things happen, people don't upgrade dvd players as often as they do computers Blaqlight ;)03:38
alraun1TehRikard:sudo apt-get install  envyng-core envyng-qt envyng-gtk03:38
ejsilver26Anyone seen the error "No rule to make target `arch/x86/kernel/asm-offsets.s', needed by `include/asm-x86/asm-offsets.h'.  Stop." and been able to solve it? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.03:38
lucentcats know how to screw with me when I'm typing in sudo commands03:38
abbzabbwould anyone possibly know how to move files from a hard drive to a usb external hard drive through terminal?03:38
Schuenemannhey, is it possible to uninstall specific screensavers?03:38
dubbyhavocstorm: if you installed firestarter through synaptic you have an icon in your applications menu03:38
lucentabbzabb: should be possible03:38
lucentabbzabb: is GUI not an option?03:38
dubbyhavocstorm: also the command to start the app would be "firestarter"03:38
obidiahhavocstorm: what are you trying to do? modify the firewall or run a program at startup03:38
guido_I'm trying to fix KDM, whenever I try to close a session or restart the computer it hangs and I have to kill it from another terminal. Any thoughts?03:39

lucentSchuenemann: "uninstall"  why?03:39
havocstormobidiah, run the program03:39
TehRikardnow if only i could figure out how to get my usb wireless-n belkin card to work03:39
abbzabblucent: i'm pretty sure it is. it's probably sudo mv hd/home/ usb/home or something.. sadly gui is not an option03:39
dubbyTehRikard : madwifi03:39
Schuenemannlucent, I want a random one, but some of the default ones are ugly and boring and I don't want them showing up =;03:39

LeefmcQuestion: It seems i need Java, what is the main java (ie, a standard java install) package called in the apt repo?03:40
abbzabblucent: i tried upgrading my computer, but it froze in the middle and now is stuck generating a locale, so i have to get to the hard drive take all mystuff off and put it onto a usb drive, then reformat the main drive, and bring all the files back on.03:40
TehRikardsorry if i'm asking stupid questions. i literally dropped ubuntu on my laptop and desktop an hour ago.03:41
Schuenemannlucent, is it possible?03:41
Blaqlight!java | Leefmc03:41

Schuenemannlucent, or at least find a way to choose which should compose random03:41
Johnnyis this because i set up /home on a different partition?03:41
TehRikardyeah, i alreayd extracted the inf from the driver disk, ejsilver26, but it won't recognize the hardware is there.03:41
abbzabbunless of course someone knows how to get passed generating a locale en_AU.UTF-803:41
lucentSchuenemann: oh, there's a way to "comment out" .... or at least there was for xscreensaver03:41
havocstormhey guys03:42
Schuenemannlucent, but xscreensaver doesn't use my system screensavers, it brings its own ones, right?03:42
ejsilver26TehRikard: Ah, I had a hard time with mine as well. madwifi might work for you. Didn't for me. But we have different hardware.03:42
lucentSchuenemann: poke around google search for gnome screensaver and the list of active screensavers, you might find a reference to it with electricsheep ( which often necessitated a config mod of gnome screensaver to get it to show up)03:42
TehRikardafter i grab mad-wifi tools from synaptic03:43

lucentSchuenemann: I haven't the time resources to check this out for you03:43
Schuenemannlusepuster, doesn't it add its own screensavers?03:44

Blaqlightcrimsun is the audio expert, you might want to ask him.03:46

hou5tonGnea:  when it says to "untar" it ... does that mean right click and open, or is there a specific tar command that should be used ... like tar -xvf... whatever?04:33

* lucent ignores the trolls04:38
Gneajrolson: since it's a kde app, it's not going to show up in a gnome menu by default - you'll need to add it to the panel04:38
crimsunejsilver26: but that's not the output I expected04:38
GraniteGargoyleyay there it is thanks04:38
dwarmeSugi I have an nvidia 7600, AMD 2.4 ghz and 1 GB ram04:38
lucentsegfault1: yeah, I wish I could figure out aircrack to be honest... but that's offtopic :P04:38
crimsunejsilver26: that's only the output from /etc/modules, which is not relevant04:38
ejsilver26alraun1: Least I won't get caught with my sound on when surfing "artistic" sites.04:38
jrolsonhow do i add it to the panel??04:38

Blaqlightsp00n: check /usr/share/{pixmaps,icons}04:39
hou5tonWhen you "tar" something, does it do something different than what would happen if you just double click on it?04:39
ekowrobdig: hmm no luck...04:40
Gneahou5ton: wait - did you download ndiswrapper from the site or did you install it with apt/synaptic?04:40
jrolsonwhere do i find it to add it to the panel then??04:40
* ComanDos lol04:40
hou5tonGnea:  followed the docs .... downloaded it from the site04:40
ejsilver26crimsun: http://pastebin.ca/108400404:40
sp00nBlaqlight, I have searched there, but there are no files by the name of the application.  Is there a way to determine what icon an application is set to use?  When I run it the taskbar entry does have an icon.04:40
jrolsonI can't find it since i was in package mgr04:40
nickrudhou5ton it unpacks it directly, when you double click you are viewing it, and may extract it. Both extractions are identical04:40
crashsystemshmm, I just stuck a blank CDR into my drive to burn an ISO, but Ubuntu doesn't seem to recognize that there is a CD in there.04:40
TehRikard|NARCSo, wireshark won't see the wireless card I'm connected on. Can anyone tell me why this might happen?04:40
jrolsoni'm new to ubuntu if you can'04:40
nickrudjrolson   dpkg -L kgreetingcard | grep /bin04:40
Blaqlightsp00n: start with sudo updatedb then loacate appname04:40
Gneaoh boy...04:40
dwarmeOk now maybe someone can help me with my problem - I am fixing a Medion MD1768 computer for my friend and ubuntu installed smoothly. My only problem is the 3D acceleration, it says it is not enabled. It claims I have a "SGI" graphics card04:40
robdigekow: hmm, wierd...let me look at something else04:41
nickrudjrolson that will give you the appname and path to put into the launcher you create04:41
lucentTehRikard|NARC: wireshark needs root rights?04:41
crimsunejsilver26: your ~/.asoundrc is extraneous; erase it04:41
Flannellucent: yes04:41
Blaqlightsp00n: obviusly spelling locate right.04:41
sugidwarme: i am having issues with my box.  I can bearly handle zsnes.  So, yea.... I am having problems.04:41
jrolsonenter that in a terminal??04:41
TehRikard|NARCYeah. How do I launch something from the drop down menus as root?04:41
nickrudjrolson yes04:41
crimsunejsilver26: also, is there a reason you're running -16- instead of -19- (kernel)/04:41
l3dok say my nick for a test run04:41
sp00nBlaqlight, K.  Oh also running dpkg -S packageName did not yield any icon results04:41
sugidwarme: were you on gnome? kde? xubuntu? or something else?04:41
dwarmeI was on Ubuntu 8.04 with wine 1.004:41
lucentTehRikard|NARC: don't know that you can easily,  if you bring up the run dialog or a terminal, you'd do sudo wireshark04:42
l3d it worked04:42
TehRikard|NARCYeah, except when I try that: Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:04:42
sugidwarme: thanks04:42
hou5tonnickrud:  so ... is "tar" basically the same idea as unzipping a file ... and when I double click, or right-click and open, as long as I can see the individual directorires and files, I can consider it extracted??04:42
dwarmeno prob sugi04:42
ejsilver26crimsun: Nope. No reason. I'll go erase that file...04:42
jrolsonit says that it's not installed, but on the spm it says it is.....what to do??04:42
TehRikard|NARCThis is on two machines. A t42 ibm laptop, and a homebrew desktop.04:42
FlannelTehRikard|NARC: warnings are warnings.  But you shouldn't use sudo for graphical programs, you should use gksu04:42
lucenthou5ton: tar + gzip = zip, functionally04:42
KohlrakAre all the programs from the ubuntu-server installable from the dovecot files, or are there others as well?04:42
nickrudhou5ton not yet extracted, you'd have to click extract there04:42
ekowrobdig: it has something to do with ubuntu recognizing where the top of my screen is because my panels can expand fully on the bottom, and when a panel is not on the very edge of the screen it is the same size as my top one04:42
lucenthou5ton: zip combines compression and directory structure04:42
crimsunejsilver26: I highly recommend you upgrade to the latest kernel in the hardy repo, then (-19-)04:43
FlannelKohlrak: What do you mean?04:43
TehRikard|NARCYeah, it's warning me, but it's not bringing the program up.04:43
TehRikard|NARCSo it's not JUST a warning :(04:43
TehRikard|NARCEven when I gksu wireshark04:43
crashsystemsmy cdrom drive is not spinning up! Grr...04:43
dwarmeOk now maybe someone can help me with my problem - I am fixing a Medion MD1768 computer for my friend and ubuntu installed smoothly. My only problem is the 3D acceleration, it says it is not enabled. It claims I have a "SGI" graphics card. I dont really know if this is the graphics card in it (I know it's on-board...) but I want to know if direct rendering / 3D acceleration is even possible.04:43
lucentTehRikard|NARC: my bad, gksu wireshark04:43
nickrudjrolson  dpkg -l kgreetingcard  (make sure you're using the right package name)04:43

KohlrakFlannel: I'm trying to install gnome on a ubuntu-server, but realize that it's really difficult, and thought i would try to install ubuntu-desktop instead, then remove the apps that i don't need.04:44
crimsunejsilver26: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade04:44
jrolsoni copied what you typed04:44
wols_dwarme: SGI it is cause of MESA, software 3D04:44
GraniteGargoyleoooh dwarme me too04:44
Gneahou5ton: ok, the docs are obviously outdated - try this instead: sudo apt-get install ndisgtk04:44
dwarmewols_ I'm trying that now04:44
ejsilver26crimsun: I've run update after update and it hasn't done that.... ok.. I'll try those commands... sec..04:44
robdigekow: what theme are you using? some of them control the panel size...04:44
Blaqlightsp00n: then it doesn't have/didn't come with one.04:44
hou5tonGnea:  ok04:44
alraun1dwarme:terminal) sudo apt-get install hwinfo04:44
nickrudjrolson what we're looking for is  ii in the first two characters, says it's installed. anything else means it's not. like   ii    kgreetingcard04:44
ekowrobdig: default human theme04:44
FlannelKohlrak: To add ubuntu to your server, you just install ubuntu-desktop04:44
jrolsonjrolson@emachine:~$ dpkg -l kgreetingcard04:44
jrolsonNo packages found matching kgreetingcard.04:44
alraun1dwarme:then hwinfo > card model,  maybe a simple   "lspci",  too04:44
robdigekow: well, that one shouldn't limit you :)04:44
dwarmealraunl I'm installing that now04:44
Blaqlightsp00n: use a generic pixmap/icon from the above mentioned locations04:45
hou5tonGnea:  already installed04:45
sp00nBlaqlight, when I run absvolume, it has a speaker icon in the taskbar.  I figure it may use an existing icon...04:45
KohlrakFlannel, i tried a few thinsg like that, but it ended up conflicting and crashing with problems04:45
TehRikard|NARCAnyone? My wireless won't show up in Wireshark.04:45
nickrudjrolson then it didn't install.  do   sudo apt-get install  kgreetingcard04:45
glitsj16sp00n: synaptic has a tab labeled 'installed files' for each package, that should give you the location of installed icons too04:45
GraniteGargoyledwarme if you find out that please help me out with it04:45
sp00nglitsj16, Thx04:45
dwarmeGranite you got it =)04:45
Gneahou5ton: ok, should be able to find it in the menu then04:45
GraniteGargoylethank you, main reason I'm in here04:45
ejsilver26crimsun: 1 upgrade to be done....04:45
FlannelKohlrak: That doesn't really make sense.  Anyway, if you use "tasksel" you can install the mail server just like the server CD does at install.04:45
Gneahou5ton: and if not, then: sudo ndisgtk04:45
MTeckAnybody know anything about ZNC? I'm having this problem -> http://pastebin.com/d2e9e54fa04:45
wols_dwarme: what did lspci say?04:45
FlannelKohlrak: But to answer your original question, all the stuff is in the packages.04:45
dwarmewols_ 1 second its doing a lot o_o04:46
sp00nBlaqlight, Synaptic lists no icons either.  Where does the icon used for the taskbar entry come from then?04:46
wols_dwarme: no it's not. it will just output around 10-15 lines of text04:46
ekowrobdig: seems to be something with my video card or resolution or something, however i have my drivers installed and my right resolution set...04:46
nickrudjrolson is that working?04:46
dwarmewols_ I got a Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 65x/M650/740 PCI/AGP VGA Display Adapter04:46
KohlrakFlannel: probably is, but for some reason the stuff doesn't want to install and/or work properly (don't know why). What about the LAMP apps, is there a single package for that too?04:46
hou5tonGnea:  right ... I've had that all along ... but anytime I attempt to install a new driver, and I've tried several ... it always tells me it's an invalid driver.04:46
Blaqlightsp00n: its probably a generic one.04:46
dwarmethats what lspci says04:46
wols_dwarme: poor you. driver is "SIS". you'd be very lucky to get hardware 3D. forget compiz04:47
l3d now if only i could I could get the kde apps i installed to use the theme I have  I would be happy04:47
jrolsoncheck im nickrud04:47
FlannelKohlrak: you can use tasksel for that (in fact, tasksel is basically what the server CD uses).04:47
dwarmeI dont want compiz, but can I get SIS driver to at least run OpenGL games decently?04:47
sp00nBlaqlight, you mean the window mgr picked it or something?  There isn't something that specifies what icon is used there?04:47
wols_dwarme: no04:47
nickrudjrolson are you running ubuntu or kubuntu ?04:47
Kohlrakoooooh, i just realized what tasksel is... Thank you for your help (will remember this for the future)04:47
dwarmewols_ should I throw an old Nvidia 6700FX into it and do that then?04:47
wols_dwarme: a LOT better04:47
dwarmeok good04:47
ejsilver26crimsun: Done.. next? :)04:48
dwarmeGraniteGargoyle sorry man looks like were out of luck unless we install 3rd party graphics cards04:48
GraniteGargoylehow to do that check Dwarme? please...04:48
ejsilver26crimsun: Now I have a nice, upgraded... uhm.... Gimp... :)04:48
robdigekow: if you right click on the panel, is the expand option checked?04:48
Blaqlightsp00n: if you can't find the icon when searching yet it has one, its using a generic backup icon for continuity.04:48
crimsunejsilver26: apt-cache policy linux-image-2.6.24-19-generic04:48

ubottuenvyng is an updated version of the *UNSUPPORTED* envy package. It is now part of the ubuntu universe repository (envyng-gtk OR envyng-qt) we suggest you use envyng if every other (official/supported) method fails! it can have various results from works, to fails!!!  if you want the very latest drivers from the manufacturer you use them at your own risk04:51

xtknightankit_, what video card do you have and what video driver are you using now in xorg.conf(if any)05:34
chronographerok so maybe new wireless network drivers are in order?  thats not my lock up problem then05:34
unavailableankit_ do these sites in question use flash ??05:34
xtknightRevFnord, you probably add it to /etc/apt/sources.list and then do sudo apt-get update in terminal05:34
cxoHow do you change the boot up logo?05:34
amenadoRevFnord-> thats aded to the sources.list not a command you type in05:34

xtknightchronographer, i am not sure, it could be the cause but not if videos trigger it probably.  are you runnig mythtv that uses video AND network at same time?  could that do it?05:34
unavailableankit_ and after visiting a site like youtube, does firefox crash if you close the tab?05:34
ankit_unavailable: they have flash, but other sites with extensive flash, including youtube work fine (although they do crash very occasionally, nothing too bad), so I don't think it's a flash related problem05:35
chronographerhmm.... it happend using vlc, and also mythtv... mythtv has been playing video for 15 mins this time, no lock up05:35

bazhangBad_Hacker, did you use envyng-gtk? perhaps the logs will tell a tale, though at this point I'm on fumes as ATI is something I dont know a heck of a lot about; also, do you need the 3d stuff for compiz etc or just dont care06:32

ankit_jeeves__: oh, sorry, my fault06:34

jeeves__ankit_, naaa, it was mine, I didn't word it right06:34
Bad_Hackerbazhang: It would be nice to have compiz on, but it is a memory hog, so it does not matter. Also, I have not used " envyng-gtk " is there an install guide for it.06:34

Bad_Hackerbazhang: i only have 640 mb of ram, so no, I do not need compiz?06:35
fyrestrtrAthenon_: where does it stop?06:36
bazhangBad_Hacker, mixed opinion on envyng-gtk; it 'works for me', but others dislike it; it does allow for the 3d drivers etc though06:36
Athenon_fyrestrtr: whenever and wherever it feels like....it doesnt stop after a set time or at a set place or anything06:36
ankit_jeeves__: my solution to video driver issues is a reinstall, and letting the auto config work it's magic... but that doesn't seem to be helping you...06:36
ankit_jeeves__: did you try the "nv" driver?06:37
fyrestrtrAthenon_: I meant where in the process does it stop -- refreshing repos, downloading, installing, etc. Or is it random.06:37
jeeves__ankit_, this is a fresh install!!  as in less than 2 hours!06:37

jeeves__ankit_, hummm, have 3d and crashes, or put up with 2D.  WOW, choices!06:43
Athenon_bazhang: nod, i will.  synaptic is currently installing stuff though....although if it doesnt freeze i dont have a problem anymore XD06:43

Athenon_bazhang: hehe thanks.  it hasnt frozen in awhile....my friend suggested to change my mirror, and so far that seems to be working06:44
jeeves__ankit_, well, I guess anything is better than the freezing.  how do I install the the drivers?06:44
ankit_jeeves__: you can try uninstalling everything graphics related and then reinstalling the nvidia drivers to see if that helps... maybe some remenants from the various driver installs are causing problems?06:45

Bad_Hackerthey are, but the one's from the ATI/AMD Crew, have issues.06:50
ankit_jeeves__: to install the nv driver, I think all you need is: "sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-nv", and then change your /etc/X11/xorg.conf driver section for your video card to say "nv"06:50
help1234564321does anyone know why pogo and ubuntu don't work?06:50
bazhangblogi, though if you do see eth0 what does sudo dhclient eth0 return in the terminal (paste output to paste.ubuntu.com , NOT here)06:51
Bad_HackerATI/AM = Proprietary Drivers and then you have your Open source drivers.06:51

rexusamenado: where is that update-alternatives?07:10
wbmjryan_ most themes are drag and drop07:10
ankit_rexus: do you want firefox-2 to be your default browser?07:11
Bubsydoes anyone know a good guide for setting up tv tuner cards?07:11
ryan_ok i do that and then nothing happens07:11
ryan_just to let u know im new but rlly intrested in ubuntu07:11
amenadoankit_-> using update-alternatives gives a cleaner way to choose which firefox to use does it not?07:11
rexusankit_: no..07:11
bazhangryan_, then it is a poorly written theme; try imetal for gnome from gnome-look.org07:12
amenadorexus-> man update-alternatives or google for how create the menu choices..i dont know the details off hand07:12
ankit_amenado: no, installing the firefox-3 and firefox-2 packages in 8.04 gives two seperate options in the menu, so you can choose between... update-alternatives doesn't even work with firefox actually07:12
ankit_rexus: then you don't need to tinker update-alternatives. just install firefox-2 and then you should be fine.07:13
amenadoankit_-> why would it not work, is the symlinks pointing to the correct firefox?07:13
ryan_ok i  will i am using Hardy-Mariux 2.007:13
rexusankit_: let me try your way first07:13
bazhangryan_, what distro is that07:13
ryan_ubuntu hardy 8.0407:13
wbmjankit : if you open Preferred Applications ... select custom and change the command to firefox-2 it will be the default07:14
bazhangoh the theme07:14
ankit_amenado: I tried a update-alternatives firefox and it said no alternatives07:14
ankit_amenado: wbmj's solution is much easier and better.07:14
ankit_wbmj: good point, thanks.07:14

kuber_thanks for your help08:01

cwillusimi, where did you get the idea that compiling your own kernel would increase performance?08:02

cwillusimi, i.e., are you adding any patches?08:02

aaa我靠 不会全是老外把 没人会说中文08:03

cwillusimi, except that when you compile them in, you're forced to use that memory, which may be a waste in many many cases08:04
tv7497bazhang: my server is broken :'(08:04
simicwillu: but at boot speed? that modules are loaded at boot speed, and it must be some slight performance if i optimize the kernel for my intel pentium cpu08:04
Bsimsgiacomo: try make uninstall and then follow the instructions in the link I sent you08:05
cwillusimi, not really, no08:05
cwillusimi, the generic kernel already has pentium optimizations in08:05
bazhangTAT, ask questions in channel not in PM; that way others can help too08:05
TATis there any other salutions besides vmware08:05
cwilluand at boot speed, there's at most a second or two's difference in not using an initrd (which you'll probably still be using, to support any other hardware you may add)08:06
TATit says it wont work on my system08:06
bazhang!vm | TAT08:06
ubottuTAT: There are several solutions for running other operating systems (or their programs) inside Ubuntu, while using the native CPU as much as possible: !QEmu (with !KQemu), !VirtualBox, !VMWare, as well as !WINE and !Cedega for Windows applications08:06
MuntrueGood morning08:06
arrenlexsimi: lol, are you trying to make your system faster by recompiling your kernel? Honestly, it's the gentoo condradiction... any microscopic gains in performance will be cancelled out a hundred times by the hour you spend compiling it. The kernel is already very optimised; don't bother, it doesn't help.08:06
MuntrueAnyone know of a way to change application titles ?08:06
simicwillu:  from the .config of the generic kernel it is not optimized for pentium08:06
cwillusimi, ubuntu's -generic kernel is, yes08:06

sirexyea, that's what im doing at the moment, but it is a bit, erm, crude.08:07
cwillusirex, Bsims there's a command you can turn on to force ungrab (ctrl+alt+* or something)08:07

arrenlexffiarpg: Depends how your tablet is hooked up internally. Mine's over serial so ttyS0 is the right one for me, and that's what's in xorg.conf. I suggest trying both ways. I have never seen /dev/input/wacom before but that doesn't mean anything, there's a lot of things I haven't seen before.08:18

Scorp_I need help regarding CGI Scripts on Ubuntu. My router uses .cgi files which dont run on Firefox and Opera both. What should i do ??08:22
sirexarg.... gimmi my mouse back xorg, or i'll slay you with the backspace !08:22
cwillusirex, eh?08:22
c0mp13371331337fyrestrtr: I see, gotcha.  How well does it integrate into the system?  For example, is it just GDM and perhaps some gnome-keyring type things?  Or can it also cover sudo commands, firefox master password (or individual sites...) and the like?08:23
arrenlexffiarpg: I don't know, actually. DRI is the direct rendering infrastructure, i.e. it's the magical layer that lets graphics be accelerated by the graphics card and not drawn in slow software. Mode 666 looks like a permissions mask but I don't know what one would be doing here... as a permissions it means read\write but no execute to everyone.08:23
arrenlexffiarpg: Google I guess.08:23
arrenlexffiarpg: In any case, it's definitely not tablet related, it's 3d accel related.08:23
cwilluarrenlex, ffiarpg, dri creates a device accessible in /dev.  Those are the permissions set on that device08:23
Kitutv7497, it's not dyNdns ?08:23
cwilluaka, who can mess with dri08:23
fyrestrtrc0mp13371331337: it covers sudo and login, but not the screensaver.08:24
cwillu(regardless of access to the server, iirc)08:24
arrenlexcwillu: Thanks, that's useful to know... so I was close to right :D08:24

Kitutv7497, in fact i understand your problem now08:25
cwilluScorp_, cgi where?08:25
c0mp13371331337fyrestrtr: X-) Ouch, screensaver + locked screen is my main security protocol.  I suppose I'll hold off, let the support ripen a bit.  Many thanks!08:25
tv7497Kitu: eh???08:25
fyrestrtrScorp_: this is not a problem that Ubuntu can fix.08:25
cwilluScorp_, cgi's are run on the server, firefox/opera only ever see the output of that (which is just like any other webpage)08:25
Kitutv7497,  you must install dns server to connect you on http://ip from internet08:25
OldSageHey I have a question...08:25
Kituonly from internet tv749708:25
Kituin LAN it work on ip08:26
cwilluScorp_, if your router (dlink, linksys, whatever?) doesn't work under firefox/opera, then it's broken08:26
Scorp_cwillu: The linksys router uses setup.cgi files which dont work on both firefox and opera. They run normally even on a PDA and other windows laptops08:26
OldSageIs there any advantage to using the 64bit version over the 32 version of Ubuntu?08:26
giacomoi use portforwarding for bittorrent, but whenever i use bittorrent, it kills all http traffic on my network... i can still use some internet things such as pidgin, but i can't browse websites and neither can anyone on my network08:26
giacomoam i doing it wrong?08:26
cwilluScorp_, in some cases, you can tell firefox/opera to pretend to be internet explorer, which solves some of those problems (broken websites)08:26
kerihello i would like some help,   i have digital camera and i have f-spot and digikam on here and f-spot is where my pictures goes to and i would like them to go to digikam how can i do this?08:26
Scorp_cwillu: how do i do that ???08:26
cwilluScorp_, otherwise, it's possible to install internetexplorer via wine, although that's not really supported.  But seriously, your router's design is broken, and it'd be best to not give the manufacturer any more money in the future08:27
arrenlexOldSage: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/64-bit#Pros_and_cons08:27
cwilluthere's no reason in this day and age to make a consumer router that doesn't work with firefox08:27
c0mp13371331337OldSage: 64 will run much better on a 64bit processor, but 64bit application support is a bit lacking (but getting there....)  You'll need 64 if you want to run any more than 4GB (3.2GB, actually) of RAM.08:27
cwilluScorp_, having said all that, what brand and model of router?08:27
Scorp_cwillu: Linksys is supposed to be the biggest designer of router world over. Its design wont possibly be broken.08:27
arrenlexOldSage: The short answer is, "not enough that the compatibility problems won't be much worse than the tiny performance gains"08:28
tv7497Kitu: i asked them how but they said opt for any DNS service provider08:28
cwilluScorp_, is it a linksys?08:28
Scorp_cwillu: Yea... Linksys WAG200G08:28
arrenlexc0mp13371331337: Why would 64-bit run much better than 32-bit on a 64-bit processor?08:28
cwilluScorp_, and if it works in ie, and doesn't in ff, it's broken08:28
Amunrecompiling the kernel sucks. too many options.08:28
arrenlexc0mp13371331337: Additionally, the -server kernel supports 4GB of ram, in 32-bit mode.08:28
Scorp_cwillu: it works well with firefox on windows OS..08:28
cwilluone sec08:28
Kitutv7497, i don't know08:29
cwillulinksys is usually pretty good about this stuff (the wrt54g actually ran linux for a long time, and you can still buy models that support it)08:29
cwilluScorp_, what error do you see?08:30
Kitutv7497, in reading RFC DNS maybe08:30
Scorp_cwillu: wrt54g is the base model of this one...08:30
kerihello i would like some help,   i have digital camera and i have f-spot and digikam on here and f-spot is where my pictures goes to and i would like them to go to digikam how can i do this08:30
Scorp_cwillu: there's no error... when i enter the username and password, the page shows its loading, but doesnt. It actually should forward to another page, which doesnt happen..08:30
cwilluScorp_, wag200g is the adsl model one, right?08:30
tv7497kiokie thanx for your time sir :)08:30
Scorp_cwillu: yeah...08:30
c0mp13371331337arrenlex: The 64bit version is made to take advantage of a 64bit processor, so it would stand to reason that it would run better than the 32bit version on the same processor.08:30
cwilluokay, it's not really related to the wrt54g08:31
Kitutv7497, sorry i'm a stupid french beginner who believe know all08:31
OldSageSo basically, unless I have a pressing need to go to 64Bit... its not worth the trouble eh?08:31
cwilluScorp_, it prompts for a password, right?08:31
Scorp_cwillu: i had the wrt54g earlier, but just to remove the dsl modem i bought this one..08:31
Scorp_cwillu: yes, it prompts for that08:31
Scorp_but after that it doesnt load the next page... which is setup.htm, after setup.cgi..08:32
arrenlexc0mp13371331337: 64-bit isn't like another core, it doesn't offer direct performance advantages. Some programs can benefit from being able to do math in 64 bit of precision, but these are specially designed high performance apps that have to be tuned for it. Other than that, all you'll notice is crushing incompaibilities with 32-bit only software, and bigger binaries due to swollen pointers.08:32
Scorp_cwillu: the setup.cgi script is to load setup.htm page with the required inputs i guess... that doesnt happen..08:32
cwilluScorp_, setup.cgi is what you get redirected to when you go directly to
cwillu(or whichever the ip is)08:33
Scorp_cwillu: yeah...08:33
cwilluodd that it redirects you immediately08:33
OldSageWell I guess that answers that08:34

dlozariehow come the firefox launcher I added in AWN manager doesn't show up in the dock?08:58
geniig00se: Or better since you have a running linux box do it from the Etch you have already there08:58
g00segenii: Thanks - i'll look into that08:58
cwillukeri, hold on, I'm making progress :p08:59
preben_hi! How do I turn off that f-spot is opened when I connect a camera in XFCE. I got a dialog and misunderstood it so now it opens f-spot which I don't use every time I connect camera. I would like to change it to ignore08:59
arrenlexHajiki: That megaupload doesn't sit well with me; is this an extension you chose to install? Anyway, whoever said to try in safemode has good advice... does it look okay if you launch it as firefox -safe-mode ?08:59
g00seThe idea would be to get Ubuntu onto my 2nd HD and then dual-boot Etch and U08:59
cwillupreben_, system | preferences | removable..., and then in places | <anything> | Edit | Preferences | Media09:00
kericwillu: i think u really fixed it and we did not know i am checking now09:00
cwillupreben_, (there's two places)09:00
preben_cwillu: in removable I can only turn on and off the command I want to run09:00
cwillupreben_, so turn it off09:01
preben_cwillu: I use another program but still f-spot get opened two09:01
cwillupreben_, so turn it off, and then look at the other spot I mentioned09:01
HorizonXPhey guys, any idea why programs seem to shutdown on me automatically, after being left on for a few hours? like Transmission?09:01
preben_cwillu: but i want my command to run, not f-spot09:01
cwillupreben_, so. check. the. other. spot. I. mentioned.09:02
hajikicwillu: i ran firefox in safe mode and it looks the same09:02
preben_cwillu: ok09:02
arrenlexHajiki: Can you give the exact url that you're seeing this on?09:02
kericwillu: i guess when u had me go to system,  pref and then to removable and change to digikam  it worked,  i turned on my camera and digikam came on and then i downloaded and they are there09:02

cwilluoh, not nautilus :/09:05
arrenlexHajiki: Looks okay to me in 3.0.1... sorry, I don't know what's going on with you.09:05
cwillugood to know if you're not running straight ubuntu :p09:05
preben_cwillu: I said xfce09:05
cwillusorry, missed that09:05
cwillupreben_, you might want to check out #xubuntu, they'll probably be a bit more familiar with where autolaunching things are set09:06
preben_cwillu: if I turn off the importing my command doesn't get run but f-spot opens anyway09:06
hajikiarrenlex: thanks anyway...09:06

FibonacciGoldFrom which package do I get zlib ?09:07
preben_cwillu: i instaleld ubuntu and xubuntu packages and kubuntu packages09:07
cwillupreben_, (ctrl+c in the terminal, possibly followed by a killall nautilus will kill it off if it starts misbehaving)09:07
preben_some people use xfce some kde etc...09:07
preben_I opened nautilus now09:07
preben_found the menu09:07
cwilluFibonacciGold, probably libzlib or something like that, just do a search for zlib in synaptic09:08
FibonacciGoldcwillu: Did that, couldn't find it.09:08
preben_I'll try xubuntu09:08
cwilluFibonacciGold, there's a zlib1g09:08
cwilluFibonacciGold, if you're compiling something, you'll need zlib1g-dev09:09
cwillupreben_, nothing there?09:09
cwilluunder images?09:09
FibonacciGoldcwillu: Yes, ofcourse, my bad. Cheers...09:09

preben_cwillu: found it in gconf-editor some gnome autorun command and I turned it off and now my script runs only09:10

TravisssHi, I setup a PPTP vpn server and have it working to access my network, but I would like to also be able to access my internet over the vpn...how do I set this up?09:11
arrenlexeko1: sudo -s ; patch -p1 < 2.6.24.patch ; exit09:11
darren_anyone offer advice on outlook 2007?09:11
unopeko1, sudo bash -c "patch -p1 < 2.6.24.patch"09:11
cwilluTravisss, you mean access the internet via the work vpn?09:11
=== laura is now known as lauritza
arrenlexeko1: unop_ suggests a better way.09:12
eko1ok thanks both of you09:12
Travissscwillu yes, I am running the VPS, I want to go down the street to the cafe and access the internet over my VPN09:12
unoparrenlex, I doubt your way works - considering that is a valid compound command :)09:12
cwilluTravisss, sorry, still confused09:12
Travissscwillu I can only access network resources right now, not the actual internet09:12
Miksag1hey.. um, is it possible to turn of the automatic ligtures in Ubuntu?09:12
cwilluTravisss, we're not talking about any remote desktop, right?09:13
darren_ anyone offer advice on outlook 2007? -or point me in a direction that can?09:13
cwilluTravisss, because accessing the internet from your work machine via the vpn is a definite no-no09:13
Travissscwillu no, I have an ubuntu computer with a vpn server running (pptp)09:13
arrenlexunop: Quite right, it's total crap. My bad.09:13
arvind_khadridarren_, ask #windows09:13
Travissscwillu why is that?09:13
darren_many thanks, arvind...09:14
cwilluallowing a work computer to access the internet directly implies circumventing the corporate firewall, which is the sort of thing that would cause me (as an administrator) to talk to your boss about your activities09:15
cwilluhowever, that's not what
