pat5starsharperguy: whereis java00:00
siefnypat5star: u know any fix that???00:00
Beta-guywhat is the default root password for ubuntu?00:00
ozzloyunop: i'm reading that page, but there's a lot of vocabulary i'm unfamiliar with on it00:00
sharperguypat5star, No idea00:01
pat5starsiefny: sry, I'm not very good with boinked mbr's, I'd check grubs docs because you have a limited shell upon boot with grub that might help you00:01
pat5starsharperguy: I meant for you to type that into a shell00:01
Cutterbobertdos: why a server?00:01
kitcheBeta-guy: that isn't one00:01
bobertdos!sudo | Beta-guy00:01
ubottuBeta-guy: sudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome), or !kdesu (KDE)00:01
jordo2323__Beta-guy: there is none, its the password you set at install.....Ubuntu technically doesn't use a root account00:01
jurocan I get a 32bit Software to run on Ubuntu?00:01
siefnypat5star: kk ty00:01
sharperguypat5star, I know but I don't know what the path of the right JVM is00:01
zikitiHello all00:02
ActionParsnipBeta-guy: you never need to be root as long as your username is a member of the sudo group00:02
Beta-guythere is NO root account?00:02
ActionParsnip!hi | zikiti00:02
ubottuzikiti: Hi! Welcome to #ubuntu!00:02
kitchejuro: yes need to install lib3200:02
fabio_net00:02
ActionParsnipBeta-guy: there is but it is moot00:02
kitcheBeta-guy: there is a root account just that it's locked down00:02
Beta-guyah00:02
ActionParsnipBeta-guy: you dont need it00:02
Beta-guycan I still SU?00:02
jurokitche: can I do that through synaptic (trying to install Aptana Studio on 64bit machine)00:02
ActionParsnipBeta-guy: if you dont use it it will make your system more secure00:02
bobertdosCutter: Because it isn't possible for two users to use the same physical computer at the same time....??00:03
kitchejuro: yeah don't know the name of the package but hang on a sec ubottu knows the anwser00:03
ActionParsnipBeta-guy: you can sudo -s if you REALLY gotta but its not advised at all00:03
Cutterbobertdos: that's what I want to do00:03
zikitiI want to reinstall ubuntu on my laptop but have about 30 gigs of information that I cannot get delete. I was thinking that I can create a new partition from free space and during the install, elect not to format that partition... how do i go about doing that?00:03
zikitiWhat tools do I need?00:03
Beta-guyI had some trouble trying to install the ATI drivers it wasn't me to be root or su00:03
Beta-guywanted00:04
pat5starsharperguy: use find to find where and how many jvm's you have installed, then try different eclipse -vm /path/* to see if any will boot up eclipse so you can make the correct permanent changes00:04
zikitiI want to do a clean install00:04
ActionParsnipBeta-guy: then put sudo before the command and you will appear as root for the life of the command, then revert back to user00:04
weirdbroHas anyone installed the banshee 1.21 yet?00:04
pat5starsharperguy: or, apt-get --purge remove eclipse; then reinstall it and see if it will work00:04
Beta-guyok I'll give that a shot, thanks!00:04
jurokitche: so what does ubottu say?00:05
weirdbroI've been having trouble with sorting in banshee 1,2100:05
kitchejuro: can't remember the switch really to see the factoid on it but in synaptic there is 32bitlibs00:05
ladyfantasyanyone know if there's a way (besides editing grub config) to turn off the ubuntu splash screen during boot to see boot messages?00:05
paolounop: yes they do00:05
juroladyfantasy: switch to a different console00:05
ladyfantasythanks juro00:06
kitcheladyfantasy: f1 I believe might get rid of the splash or esc00:06
onelivv_Anyone familiar with mpeg4ip on Ubuntu Hardy?00:06
ActionParsnipkitche: i think its ia3200:06
ladyfantasywill try that too kitche00:06
Marko84:-D00:06
Marko84any1 from Europe in here?00:06
zikitianyone?00:06
kitcheActionParsnip: nope but ia32 is not 32bit since ia64 is not the same as x86_6400:07
ubuntuhow can I stop logging of system events? I know /etc/syslog.conf and 'System > System > Session'00:07
pat5starladyfantasy: also you can stop it in your /boot/grub/menu.lst, it's the splash directive. (backup menu.lst first just in case!)00:07
kitcheActionParsnip: ia32 might be some odd arch. that they might have tried using before they got ia64 working :)00:07
skalper1hello00:07
ladyfantasyyeah, i always edit the grub config, but sometimes forget after a kernel upgrade puts it back in there without asking me... :/  thanks pat5star00:07
ActionParsnipkitche: they let you run 32bit apps00:07
pat5starladyfantasy: n/m, just seen your original post\00:07

kitcheActionParsnip: yes but ubottu does not have that as a switch :)00:08
ActionParsnip!32bit00:08
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about 32bit00:08
kitcheladyfantasy: well if you wanted you could copy the kernel lines and put them at the end of the file then updates won't effect it really00:09

Kernelhow can i force a program to run in the background? its currently running in a console?00:12
bobertdosutnubu: bcrypt is a simple command line utility that uses the blowfish algorithm00:12
bobertdos!info bcrypt | utnubu00:13
ubottuutnubu: bcrypt (source: bcrypt): Cross platform file encryption utility using blowfish. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.1-5 (hardy), package size 17 kB, installed size 72 kB00:13
ladyfantasyKernel: one way is to start the process with "nohup"00:13
Kernelutnubu: best encryption app is truecrypt.00:13
ladyfantasybut i don't believe you can do that once the process is already running, so you'd need to start it over00:13
gsdDoes anyone know if there is a tool similiar to prime95 for linux?00:13
Kernelladyfantasy: see the program is already running..and i need to log out then back in...without it stopping00:13
ActionParsnipgsd: what does it do?00:13
ladyfantasyyeah, best thing is probably to wait til it finishes if you don't want to restart it00:13
utnubuok, you already told me encryption methods, but could someone tell me where can I find a tutorial on how to do it?00:14
gsdActionParsnip: uhm its a cpu/memory torture test, used for overclocking :)00:14
ActionParsniputnubu: search for encryptfs00:14
utnubuok00:14
ActionParsnipgsd: theres a cpu burn in test on the ultimate boot cd, takes about 6 days to run00:14
gsdActionParsnip: ... ouch ><00:15
Swishthat sounds like overkill to the extreme00:15
ActionParsnipgsd: yeah its a proper test00:15

gleyvethnks guys..i'll look for it00:24
kitcheCostaRicanQuaker: dwm twm openbox, fluxbox, blackbox00:24
ChousukeKenBW2: dunno :/00:24
rwthere is an article about it on linuxowns.wordress.com00:25
jmichelsen_didooofidooo: the thing is there is no makefile, it was a script named something else. Think it will still work that way?00:25
kitcheCostaRicanQuaker: probably fluxbox/openbox/blackbox00:25
KenBW2Chousuke: ah well00:25
ActionParsnipfrsandstone77: should be fine00:25
CostaRicanQuakerkitche: are those downloadable from the repositories?00:25
kindofabuzzjmichelsen_: i sent you a pm if ya don't mind00:25
kitcheCostaRicanQuaker: well fluxbox is00:25
CostaRicanQuakercan i install them all and try them out and choose which session to log into?00:25
kitcheCostaRicanQuaker: you should be able to00:26
frsandstone77acionparsnip:  because i wouldnt be using ubuntu very much during the work, do you think that i would be able to maintain decently smooth operation with even 6-7gb allocated to the vmware?00:26
CostaRicanQuakerlike kde/gnome/xfce, i don't want to install another distro i just want a lighter windows manager00:26
bobertdosCutter: Well, I was going to say, if that's the case, you could set up additional user accounts.00:26
CostaRicanQuakerkitche so i sudo apt-get install fluxbox ?00:26
kitchefrsandstone77: yes that machine out powers most machines here most likely00:26
ActionParsnipfrank23: yeah it runs fine on my semperon am2 with 1gb DDR2 so you shuld be fine00:26
frsandstone77okay00:27
didooofidooojmichelsen :  i dont think so ... it will work only if there is a makefile ... any way applications that is are installed from source code are hard to be uninstalled :-(00:27

jamie25Hello, I have java enabled on my firefox browser that allows me to play youtube.. after clicking on the 2nd or 3rd youtube video my PC shuts down & will reboot back into ubuntu.. I have also seen the black screen with a bunch of codes & what not.. What could I do to fix this?00:27
Daisuke_Laptopwell, since youtube is flash, not java...00:27
CostaRicanQuakerkitche: so i sudo apt-get install fluxbox ?00:27
ActionParsnipfrsandstone77: you could always reduce ram to vmware if its slow which id imagine its not due to your cpu00:27
kitcheCostaRicanQuaker: yes00:27
utnubucan I encrypt my OS after I have it installed, or do I need to do some extra step before installing?00:28
ActionParsnipCostaRicanQuaker: yeah, if you wanna install fluxbox (which KICKS ASS!)00:28
jamie25ok00:28
ActionParsniputnubu: no idea, I only know of it. ive never used it00:28
CostaRicanQuakerActionParsnip: can i install freebsd without erasing anything from ubuntu?00:28
jamie25so would it be an issue with flash then?00:29
ActionParsnipCostaRicanQuaker: its a totally different OS dude00:29
CostaRicanQuakeryes, but can i?00:29
dmoernerjamie25, you use flash, not java, for youtube.00:29
utnubuActionParsnip, I'll do my research and will experiment on my PC. I'll tell you the outcome, if you're interested00:29
CostaRicanQuakeri hear that all linux applications run on it00:29
rwKenBW2: if you are wondering on how I fixed it (you asked something similar), take a look at the place plugin in compiz fusion. It did the trick for me and you can specify window placement there00:29
ActionParsniputnubu: sure00:29

ActionParsnipCostaRicanQuaker: its a different OS altogether, you'll be format / reinstalling00:30

didooofidooojmichelsen    you are welcome .... try to delete the installed files manualy .. this is the last way00:31
ActionParsnipCostaRicanQuaker: then you need to resize the partitions or buy a second drive00:31
dmoernerCostaRicanQuaker, you will need to repartition to create free space for freebsd, which will in turn create a disklabel on the partition you give for it00:31
ActionParsnipCostaRicanQuaker: or run it virtually00:31

MrWizeGuy1983Odd-rationale, just did that, going to check if it works differently, it was refusing to play real media which my xine backend works wonderfully for01:28
bastid_raZorqr_; you're wrong.. he needs added to the admin group01:29

eligosis xmms configurable to paly video??01:29
casdfeligos: i'd just suggest vlc01:29
_2somebody have a sujestion ?01:29
IndyGunFreakeligos: xmms pretty much sucks for playing music, but o, it doesn't play videos01:29
qr_bastid_raZor: no, I'm right.  adding him to the admin group is another way of doing it.01:29
casdfRageMachine: did you have a dock recommendation?01:29
MrWizeGuy1983Odd-rationale, i'm not sure if it's using the xine backend now or not, should be, but it's giving me a message that i need reaplayer to play something (i have it but it's not using it because firefox doesn't have a realplayer plugin on my computer)01:29
alraun1the|navigator:you're done for the first ?01:30
bastid_raZorqr_; he'll have issues figuring out visudo.. hopefully he gets it. admin group would have been much easier.01:30
eligoswhat would you recommend to be the best music player??01:30
EugenMayerhow could i upgrade the subversion client to a newer version with ubuntu hardy ?01:30
primistrySongbird01:30
casdfeugenmayer: sudo apt-get install svn should do it01:31
Odd-rationaleMrWizeGuy1983: idk then... sorry... :(01:31
IndyGunFreakeligos: for a small, light player(like xmms), i like audacious... even uses xmms skins if you want.01:31
MrWizeGuy1983thanks for the try Odd-rationale i appreciate your time01:31
qr_bastid_raZor: why are you telling me this.  I think it would have been a lot more productive to tell _him_ this if you really feel this strongly about it.01:31
EugenMayercasdf: the word "upgrade" is quite important01:31
eligosthanks01:31
IndyGunFreakeligos: if you're looking a full featured music program(like itunes), i'd recommend banshee or rhythmbox01:31
casdfEugenMayer: when you say install, it will tell you if it can be upgraded.01:31

MrWizeGuy1983bigdiskool, i have a program called sysinfo i recommend to you, i'll get you a link once we know and it will tell you everything01:39
_2neurobuntu heh.    we all typo.    and seeing that i had never heard of  #ubuntu_motu or #ubuntu-motu  i didn't know the differance.   thanks for the heads up.01:39
SuperQEugenMayer: if you add deb-src instead of deb to sources.list, it will only bring intrepid stuff in when you "apt-get source"01:40
SuperQEugenMayer: you keep everything else in sources.list the same01:40
SuperQEugenMayer: once you apt-get -b source it will create debs that _should_ work01:40
SuperQEugenMayer: I do this all the time to backport apps to my servers01:40

Snares`edit xorg.conf01:56
matjanneurobuntu: uhm... nope... did not see an update notice for that01:56
Snares`and do Option Twinview "disable"01:56
Snares`I think01:56

Snares`do you have an ATI card?01:58
Snares`obviously so01:58
matjanstill, i'd like to know what goes wrong01:58
LeefmcSnares`: Should i "add" that? Because my xorg doesn't even HAVE "twin" in it. And yes, ATI01:58
Snares`no I added it, but I think it only affects nvidia cards01:58

uoaphyshi guys, I just installed virtualbox in a brand new ubuntu 8.04 system. I don't know exactly how to describe what I am wanting to do, but here goes: I have a home network setup on 192.168.1.x which the linux host is on. Then I have the virtualbox which installed by default a NAT behind the linux host at 10.2.2.x. What I want to do is give the virtualbox system a 192.168.1.x ip and completely avoid the double NAT. Is this possible?02:26
rustychickenhow do i create a password-protected zip archive?02:27
uoaphysdoes this require a bridge setup in the linux network?02:27
FlannelThedjatclubrock: You'll just create partitions out of the unallocated stuff, and use those.  Its real straight forward, I like the alternate CD better than the desktop when it comes to partitioning02:27

NutzebahnHello. I would like to have voice conversations with MSN in Ubuntu, how can I?02:44
hal_v2Oooh! I have a new problem to be annoying about! My laptop screen (hp pavilion dv2000) is darker than usual. Kinda like it's trying to save power, but it's connected to the wall so I don't get it.02:44
taxmanNutzebahn: sudo aptitude install amsn02:44
ThedjatclubrockFlannel: When you OEM, on startup you see custom message asking you for a new user?02:44
erixnOk. I read a guide on how to Compiz Fuzion. And it says that I can find my graphic driver in here: Administration > Hardware Drivers. But it's nothing there.02:44
NutzebahnI can't have voice conversations in aMSN, taxman.02:44
taxmanreally?02:44
FlannelThedjatclubrock: After the oem (that's you) runs "sudo oem-config-prepare"02:44
taxmanoh, then maybe it's not possible yet. Empathy is supposed to be able to do that soon if not now02:45
ThedjatclubrockFlannel: So I have a shell before the OEM02:45
FlannelThedjatclubrock: The OEM installer gives you a temporary OEM user, you use oem to login and make changes (setting up drivers, wallpapers, etc) then sudo oem-config-prepare and then next boot it asks for the "real" users information02:45
jmichelsen_Nutzebahn: try pidgin02:45
FlannelThedjatclubrock: No, a full system02:45

Nutzebahntaxman: Could you link me to Empathy's website?02:53
taxmannever had reason to use it and I don't want to dl 600mb just to check02:53
uoaphysits pretty straightforward in the instructions, except that it forces you to hardcode the network setup files, and thus breaks networkmanager02:53
uoaphys'so is there a way to do it with network manager?02:53
Gneataxman: yes.02:53
Gneataxman: and bridging vm's is a piece of cake.02:53
taxmanGnea: except the instructions suck for it and make it sound like the most difficult thing on the planet. 18 hoops02:54

CostaRicanQuakerwhat's faster/less memory expensive fluxbox or jwm?02:56
_2taxman technelly all install disks are "live" but by modern definition of "live cd"   no.   server install is not "live"   it has no gui  and a cd must run a gui to qualify under modern def.02:56

bobertdosLordFDisk: Some techniques for doing that sort of clean up is to use apt-get clean/autoclean and also when there are residual packages to deal with, Synaptic can sweep those up.02:56

joker_how come I get  a hardwarer driver problem when I installed ubuntu.02:56
Thedjatclubrockjoker_: What is the problem02:57

CostaRicanQuakerThedjadclubrock: how do i set desktop icons on fluxbox? i went ot hte fluxbox chat but didn't see anyone who's using it on ubuntu and i can't seem to see a fluxbox folder at hte home02:57

webmanI'm trying to run a linux binary application, and I get "error while loading shared libraries: libqt-mt.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" but that library exists in /usr/lib/libqt-mt.so.3 any suggestions on how to resolve this ?04:01
ffenechardy is a beta version04:01
Pelof4hy,  xchat , not xchat-gnome04:02
Thedjatclubrockffenec: No it is LTS04:02
Peloffenec, hardy is final,  ibex is in alpha04:02

ffenecthanks04:02
f4hyThedjatclubrock, I am on xchat right now and seems low on features.04:02
LegendarioLook. I have this second hd on my old pc which is mounted as my /home folder on it. What i wanna do is partition my new hardrive and copy all the stuff on this old hd to the new partition to mount it again as my /home folder and so, keep all my configuration. Will i be able to do it if i connect both network cards and use the nfs? Can anyone tell me that?04:02
f4hyPelo, what do you mean not xchat-gnome04:02
VipOrXf4hy: mIRC works perfect under wine04:02
webmanLegendario: probably better to avoid NFS, but yes, you could do it that way...04:03
Pelof4hy, in the repos there are two versions of xchat ,  xchat-gnome which most ppl hate and regular-vanila xchat which most love04:03
f4hyVipOrX, Thanks but I would prefer an F/OSs client04:03
Pelof4hy, check the about screen to know which on you have04:03

gaspipe1lil issue I have...04:04
Pelogaspipe1, just state the problem04:04
f4hyThanks all!04:04
gaspipe1I have a dual boot system (ubuntu and xp), seems I'm having issues booting xp... (go figure)04:04
webmanLegendario: I think the best method is something like this (but syntax is likely all wrong, so check it out first) tar -Cvf - /home | nc ... and on the other machine do a nc ... | tar -xvf -04:04
gaspipe1anyway i want to copy some files I have on that (xp) partition via ubuntu04:05
Pelogaspipe1, is xp on the same hdd ? what is the nature of the problem , please make your next statement as complete as possible04:05
webmanLegendario: basically avoid nfs because if you don't need it, then there is little point in going to the trouble of setting it all up just for a one time transfer of data....04:05

PeloThedjatclubrock, oem does not setup any accouint , it waits until the first official user logs in as far as I know04:10
Pelo!away | Thedjatclubrock04:10
ubottuThedjatclubrock: You should avoid noisy away messages in a busy channel like #ubuntu, or other Ubuntu channels; it causes excessive scrolling which is unfair to new users. Use the command "/away <reason>" to set your client away silently.  See also «/msg ubottu Guidelines»04:10
ThedjatclubrockPelo: But it first logs in as OEM04:10
FlannelPelo: It sets up an oem account, which gets removed04:11
FlannelThedjatclubrock: I believe it does, but can't say for sure.04:11
ThedjatclubrockFlannel: Thank you.04:11
FlannelThedjatclubrock: I believe it removes oem, and re-adds a user with the same UID04:11

ffenecmy synaptic cant find a package to upgrade from feisty 7.04 to 7.10. what could be the problem?04:21
Pelof4hy, I'm just bored because there is nothing left for me to fix on my computer04:21

m1xedanyone know why only nautilus can view all of my drives??  I can't view any of my drives using Konqueror04:21
Gnea!upgrade | ffenec04:21
ubottuffenec: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes04:21
Peloffenec, if you don'T have a lot of customisation done, just backup your /home folder to a seperate partion and clean install hardy from cd ,  it will be quicker04:22
f4hyPelo, ya right there with you. Just finished a huge project where I broke grub 100 times, now I feel empty without a problem04:22
Flannelffenec: We could upgrade manually if you want.04:22
gaspipe1Pelo: says that it's in use by windows.... will shut dwn then power up again04:22
ffenechow04:22
ffenec?04:22
hwildeffenec, it would be faster to backup your stuff and install 8.04 from the cd anyways.04:22
plouffeI downloaded a mp3 to my desktop, then I copied it to another disk, suddenly it starts playing in totem (but no GUI visible) and I cannot kill it even using sudo kill -9 pid. What the heck is that?04:22
Gneahwilde: fiesty *can* upgrade directly to hardy.04:23
ffenecit the 8.04 stable?04:23
dmsupermanI'm trying to build transmission from source, but it keeps saying I need libcurl or that it's not in the PKG_CONFIG_PATH04:23
Gneaffenec: yes, in fact it's 8.04.1 now04:23
hwildeGnea, I stand by whatI said.04:23
Flannelffenec: install ubuntu-desktop, ubuntu-standard, ubuntu-minimal, linux-generic.  then make sure you're up to date (sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade), making sure you have feisty-updates enabled, then switch your sources.list to gutsy, and sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade04:23
m1xedhwilde, and if you attempt to upgrade it **might** crash, so make sure you back up all your settings04:23
Gneahwilde: not saying you're wrong, it's a good fallback plan.04:23
FlannelGnea: no, feisty can't upgrade to hardy directly.04:23
hwildeGnea, look at his attitude.  point him to livecd.  end of story04:23
Pelodmsuperman, why are you doing this ? transmission is installed by default ?04:23
plouffethe process shows up in system monitor as uninterruptible04:23
f4hyPelo, so what was your question? :P04:23
ffenecok Flannel04:24
ffeneci am gonna take a shot04:24
ffenecthank you04:24
hwildeffenec, it would be faster to backup your stuff and install 8.04 from the cd anyways.04:24
Pelof4hy, I solved that problem a long time ago ,  I just needed to add the extra resolution I wanted to the xorg.conf file04:24
m1xedanyone knows of a File Manager that's similar to remond's explorer?04:24
ffenecalright i will try to do manually then if it doesnt work for me i will install 8.0404:24

thurloatTuxu04:25
FlannelGnea: (well, and then 7.10 to 8.04)04:25
Pelom1xed,  you can also go in menu > applications > add-remove and do a search on file manager04:25
m1xedPelo, im currently using nautilus04:25
GneaFlannel: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HardyUpgrades#Upgrade from 6.06 LTS to 8.04 LTS04:25
FlannelGnea: Yes.  Feisty is 7.04, which is neithe Dapper nor Gutsy.04:26
hwildeGnea, Flannel, that would take hours to dl all those packages, three times04:26
Pelom1xed, yes you can get side panel in nautilus,  what feature of explorer are you wanting anyway ?04:26
hwildebest just get the cd04:26
Flannelhwilde: Twice you mean.04:26
m1xedPelo, I already did that, I installed all the ones I saw there and none are able to either view all my hard drives or they wont allow me to pick more than one file at the same time04:26

Pelom1xed, to select multiple files use  the control and shift key when you click ,  and drives in linux aren't like in windows,   in linux ,  partions are mounted just like anyother folders , you won'T see drives04:27
m1xedhwilde, right so now I have to click all of the files, in konqueror i can use the mouse04:28
Pelodmsuperman, maybe you need a transmission channel04:28
f4hym1xed, ctrl clicking mutilpule files will highlight them and then dracking one of them should work. Dragging files into an MP3 client will be supported differently based on client04:28
jribdmsuperman: so install the -dev package for libcurl04:28
dmsupermanjrib, did04:28
dmsupermanPelo, I asked in there almost an hour ago04:28

darthanubismbr05:57
drezardladyfantasy, im guessing i dont just vim it?05:57
t1n0m3nmbr is on raid0, grub cant read it05:57
ladyfantasyyep, that's all you do05:57
qilerhmmm... was it like in windows? because the closest i got is twinview05:57
KenthreeI'm using Samba server to share a folder; from the client machines I can run/copy from two of the three subfolders. But the files from one of the subfolders are access denied (a multipart rar) Any ideas?05:57
gorcHi, Why does 8.04 seem to do NAT when I plug directly into cable modem?  Network properties shows IP of 192.168.1.X .  It's a dual boot system and the XP side gets 24.X.X.X from DHCP which is what I expect.  I have not set up firewall.05:57
FeltZ_depends on what you mean, like in windows. Its just as customizable05:57
drezardladyfantasy and delete everything???05:57
qilerbazhang. this is ubuntu related05:57
t1n0m3nI am thinking on the ubuntu hard drive, and boot offf of that instead05:57
ladyfantasyno, just anything related to that host.05:57
drezardladyfantasy i only have a bunch of letters that make no sense currnelty05:58
FeltZ_qiler: you have ati or nvidia?05:58
bazhangqiler, windows for windows channel05:58
qilernvidia05:58
osxdudegorc: use a static IP05:58
jaggzbleh05:58
FeltZ_qiler: and twinview isnt good enough for you?05:58
ladyfantasydrezard: do you have a lot of host keys in there?05:58
haostunbye05:58
ladyfantasydrezard: if not, then just delete the .ssh/known_hosts file05:58
t1n0m3nand point grub to sda0 for windows... but will that work?05:58
drezardladyfantasy, not that i know of ...05:58
drezard:S05:58
mickeykikou05:58
FeltZ_qiler: are you trying to output to TV and monitor, or two monitors?05:58
ladyfantasythere's probably a better way to do it, but looking at my known_hosts file, i can't see the hostnames or ips in it ... must be something new05:59
qilernope... windows are opening in the middle of the screens, and i can't fullscreen the windows on one screen instead of giant span on both05:59
qilertwo monitors05:59
dvswow  .. thankx again Kernel05:59
gorcosxdude, thx the network is running but not sure how it's getting non routable address from cable mdm.  Is 8.04 doing nat internally?06:00
speenerdoes ubuntu support .deb files?06:00
bazhangspeener, yes06:00
speenercool...so any package made for debian will install?06:00
osxdudegorc: possible06:00
FeltZ_qiler: not sure on that problem, it should be a setting in nvidia control panel if that is available. I have ATI on this setup so I cannot check.06:01
DistroJockeyqiler, I believe I had to chose the option of using Separate X servers for each screen06:01

x2oiam using another wm and need the trash can in nautilus but it doesnt work, is there a daemon or programm whicht i schould start before?06:18
owen1i install ubuntu. should i choose LVM?06:19
Rat409x2o: cd or use nautilus to go to your user's /home/Desktop06:19
jesselucasjrib: still no luck. I ran ldd on svnadmin and you can see the files missing: http://pastie.org/25276206:20
bazhangowen1, any reason to do so?06:20
owen1bazhang: what is the benefit of lvm?06:20
x2oRat409, i am using nautilus just as a filemanager06:21

owen1bazhang: i still don't know if i should use it..06:22
crdlbx2o: Places > Trash in the menubar?06:22
bazhangowen1, if you dont know then no.06:22
Rat409x2o: i don't think you can use an icon but the trashcan if you didn't delete it is in your user's desktop i.e. ~/.Desktop folder06:22
x2oyes it denies access06:22
x2ono06:23
owen1bazhang: i understand that it will allow me to add hard drives to my system and use the same ip.06:23
jribwhat command are you running to get the error?06:23

crdlbx2o: what is the exact message?06:23
owen1bazhang: is it accurate?06:23
bazhangowen1, did you have troubleshooting with an lvm? this is not a chat channel06:23
Rat409x2o: well you can create one most probly06:23

crdlbnautilus can just put a trash icon on its representation of the desktop06:24
x2oits somewhere in .gnome or so06:24
x2othey changed it in hardy06:24
owen1bazhang: sorry, didn't understand your last comment..anyway, i guess i don't need LVM. can you give me a good use case for using it, so i'll be sure i don't need it?06:24

ubottuFredd: Alpha Software: Intrepid Ibex is the code name for Ubuntu 8.10, due October 2008 - #ubuntu+1 for discussion | Warning lots of broken software between now and October!06:48
ramontayagwhen i run the code in inittab though, it's able to start monit.06:48
Freddbazgabg: well i asked in there but im thinking this is a keyboard layout issue nothing related to interpid it self06:49
namegameFredd, you could try popping in a live CD of Hardy, and see if your keyboard works06:49
bazhangFredd, that is where it belongs, regardless of what you guess.06:49

c0mp13371331337Hey fellas, I mostly tend to stick with Ubuntu, but admittedly stray to Windows for gaming purposes.  I currently dual-boot and I have a 250GB hard drive.  At the moment, I have about 20 for /, 70 for C:\, and the rest for /home.  The only reason C:\ is so large is because the games I install take up to 12 GB sometimes.  Using the ext3 drivers available for Windows, would it be possible to just mount /home in Windows and install game06:50

lostogreramontayag: Not exactly. In order for an event to register with init it has to be written to do so. Something that can be done is to run the daemon in a script wrapper. You should look at upstart.ubuntu.com. There is language that will make init restart a failed daemon.06:54

ubottuIf you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer). If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP307:44

kenkku_dxdemetriou: nautilus doesn't know what your password is07:51

miyavix3Ok08:01
miyavix3Time to laugh at me08:01
Scorp_natha1: If u can see the network and not connect, it could be an error of the security key... are you accessing a secure network ???08:01
entropiusnatha1: if you can see the networks in iwlist, try manually connecting to them using iwconfig. Try something like "sudo iwconfig eth1 essid <whatever>", replacing eth1 with whatever your network card is08:01
rustychickenmiyavix3: i guarantee ive done worse08:01
miyavix3but I started removing python2.4-minimal08:01
miyavix3And i started uninstalling ubuntu08:01

unopbigmack83, hmm, lotsa people have already done that -- as vista is windows08:09
miyavix3I'll be back, I can tell you that much08:09

entropiusI have a problem with all sounds stuttering badly on my install. It's on the onboard sound of a Nvidia-chipset motherboard. Any ideas where I can look for advice? All the resources I've found deal with having no sound at all.08:09
unopBodsda, at a terminal .. :)08:09
natha1very hard to follow08:09
Bodsdaunop, im not on ubuntu atm im on windows *sigh*08:10
timoguinI need help patching my currently-running RT kernel for driver support.  Should I just patch the linux-headers-rt source?08:10
Scorp_entropius: U could use the same resources to kinda recover ur sound back...08:10
timz84i just apt got xchat, what is this red line?08:10
unopBodsda, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rsync08:10
dxdemetriouBodsda, when the user login with the AD on Ubuntu is ok with Likewise-open. When user try to connect to it's shared folder from samba it asks for password. Can I make something to use the same password that used on AD to samba too?08:10
natha1unfortunately you are dealing with a first time linux user08:10
unop!info rsync | Bodsda08:10
ubottubodsda: rsync (source: rsync): fast remote file copy program (like rcp). In component main, is standard. Version 2.6.9-6ubuntu2 (hardy), package size 256 kB, installed size 512 kB08:10
Bodsdadxdemetriou, sorry, not sure -- ask channel08:10
Bodsdaunop, i c, does it keep permissions and everything?08:11
bigmack83unop: haha oops. i mean i have made the change from vista to linux08:11
gildanatha1: what exactly is your wireless issue ?08:11
unopBodsda, depends on how it is invoked08:11
timz84wanna hear something funny?08:11
bigmack83well, ubuntu08:11
entropiusBodsda: That information on rsync isn't very informative. What it's good for is synchronizing two directories over a network using as little network traffic as possible. One thing it can do is copy, but it'll do more. And, yes, there's an option for preserving permissions.08:11
timz84i accidentally installed ubuntu over vista08:11
entropiusman rsync will tell you exactly what switches do what08:12
Bodsdawow, cheers entropius -- and thanks unop ;~)08:12

FAJALOUi am trying to get samba to see my windows computer downstairs but every time i want to see it, i have to manually type in smb://192.168.1.101/users08:13
unopBodsda, tho you don't have to use rsync over a network .. it can sync two local directories just fine08:13
vombatthis is a nice place! hi everybody!08:13

Quiescentwhy isn't there a fsck.ntfs?08:16

ZirodayFAJALOU: if you want to do that, then you would have to make your entire computer a samba share08:16
maddoxfirst time I have been on IRC in nearly a decade...this is weird08:16
FlannelQuiescent: Because NTFS support is all done at userlevel with FUSE08:16

tabberhi, anyone knows how can I use rm to remove files older than 30 mins in a specific dir?08:17
generalsnustrying to use pam_group.so   so users that logs on would be a member of the local groups floppy/audio/fuse/plugdev.   but it dosent seem to work, issuing the cmd "id" with a user only shows he is a member of the group "domain^user" anyone else tried this?08:17
FAJALOUZiroday: regardless; if i go into Windows Network, i should be able to see DOWN, but i can't and i have to manually type in the ip address and then type in the directory i am looking for, how can i change that?08:17
Miyavix3I'm back everyone08:17
Quiescenti have to remind myself to actually use the safe hardware removal crap in windows when i move my hard-drive back and forth between machines08:18

maddoxthis time last week, I thought Linux was an unnecessarily complicated OS that served no purpose other than as a way for ubernerds to flaunt their technical superiority08:18
