kitchemrkiko: the driver is called libata00:17
Miyavix3Does anyone know a channel for networking problems?00:18
mrkikokitche: ... but if I compile my vanilla kernel, I can see sata disk as /dev/sd? and ide ones as /dev/hd?, as it always has been00:18
kitchemrkiko: yes because you didn't enable libata which is the new driver, when you built your own kernel you used the older driver00:18
k3rnelpanichas anyone had problems downloading pkg files when upgrading to hardy from gutsy? i need 2 pkgs and they wont download, not even manually00:18
mrkikokitche: ah ok... but will libata handle even old ide disks?00:19
kitchemrkiko: yes, just will name them /dev/sdX00:19
mrkikokitche: thank you. Aniway what's the correct option' I can see libata loaded in my dmesg00:19
mrkikoand the ata_piix module I'm using is handling my sata disks using libata it seems00:20
kitchemrkiko: either way but soon the old way is actually being removed from the kernel00:20

powertool08if a service is listed as running in runlevel 4 and 5 does that mean its started in 4, and a second instance is started in 5?00:24
k3rnelpanicoops i meant vinu76jsr not vindictive00:25
k3rnelpanicdamn auto complete :P00:25
Starnestommypowertool08: that means that it starts if your system starts in runlevel 4 or runlevel 500:25
powertool08or is it more like it runs only in the checked runlevels so if 2,3,4 are checked it starts it 2, runs in 3 and stops in 4?00:25
Guest88090T2, yes that's usually the best way00:26
mrkikokitche: I'll try it now00:26
T2h4x0r: yes, still no sound is there packages that i may need to install like libasound or other prepacked programs in ubuntu?00:26
k3rnelpanicvinu76jsr: you still there?00:26
vinu76jsr@k3rnelpanic ya 683 kb00:26
powertool08Starnestommy: so during bootup the service starts in 4, then the system goes to runlevel 5 and if the service is already running from 4 it does nothing, otherwise it starts it?00:26

k3rnelpanicK3rnel.panic@yahoo.com00:28
powertool08Starnestommy: then why are things like kdm, klogd, hal checked in almost all runlevels? isn't that excessive stopping and starting? or is it to ensure its running no matter which runlevel you go to?00:29
h4x0rT2:system adminastration Hardware drivers00:29
Starnestommypowertool08: it's to make sure that they're always runnig except in single-user mode or runlevel 100:29
T2h4x0r: says no proprietary drivers used on this application00:30
Starnestommypowertool08: usually, you wouldn't need to use anything besides runlevels 0, 2, or 600:30

Jordan_UYancho: You probably want to use "su -c" and "screen <command>"00:45
rconanhisto, well as i have now learnt those files are ones which have been deleted but are still in use by a program. apparently fuse doesn't hide these from the user. lsof to find out which program then closing and restarting it has fixed the issue00:45

FusedGuys, I had Fluxbox 1.0.0-3 installed on my Ubuntu system. Well, I found out that Fluxbox has a newer version (1.1.0.1) and I downlaoded & installed it. Then I removed the 1.0.0-3 version. If I do "fluxbox -v", it shows that I have Fluxbox 1.1.0.1 properly installed; however, when I logout or restart to attempt to change my session to Fluxbox, it isn't in the list of available sessions.00:58
FusedAnyone know what to do from this point?00:58
ScheissDrogenCaptainMorgan: search adept looking up lm00:58
kitcheFused: make the fluxbox.xsession file most likely00:58

MasterFruityLoopBut, after a reboot, of course.01:41

user_Where are all the programs stored like Rhythmbox etc... like in windows there is Program Files?02:01
Schuenemannircleuser, what do you mean by "boot disk" ?02:01
Jordan_USpacy: It might, there might be a bug in whatever modification the rootkit made to hide its files02:01
ircleuserits an iso i downloaded to install ubuntu02:01
ircleuserand burnt to a cd02:01
Schuenemannis it on a cd?02:01
ircleuseryes02:01
Schuenemannyes, that's a live cd02:01
ircleuserok02:02
jStefanircleuser, did you try taking the cd out?02:02
cortDoes anyone know where I can get some help with Thunderbird? I can't remember my gmail account which I am connecting to through thunderbird via IMAP. For whatever reason the IMAP part lost the password but the SMTP part didn't so I can send mail through my gmail in thunderbird but I can't receive it. Is there a way to view the saved passwords in thunderbird?02:02
Schuenemannso, you want to erase windows and install ubuntu, but you want to copy your files before doing that?02:02
ircleuserboot cd is windows lingo for a cd that the computer uses to start02:02
ircleusercorrect02:02
ircleusercan it be done?02:02
Schuenemannwell, yes...02:02
cilkaycort: No, there isn't. Just change your Gmail password using your browser.02:03
Jordan_USpacy: Have you tried chckrootkit just in case?02:03
SpacyJordan_U: Hm you're right - any good recommendation for a scanning tool?02:03
Schuenemannircleuser, I would use the livecd to boot ubuntu, then copy the files to a pendrive and then erase windows' partiton02:03
SpacyJordan_U: nope not yet - will do in a moment02:03
cortcilkay: I would if I could remember it :) catch 2202:03
kindofabuzzrkhunter or chkrootkit02:03
Schuenemannare there too many files?02:03
thorny_sunis there a faster way to do this:? 'cp blah.txt blah/blah/blah/blah/blah.txt; cd blah/blah/blah/blah' ? i.e. is there some quick way to cd down into the directory you just copied to?02:03
ircleuserone drive has 32 GB taken and the other 2402:04
ircleuserwhat do you mean pen drive?02:04
SchuenemannUSB flash drive02:04
ircleuseroh02:04
Schuenemannor stick, or whatever it's called where you live02:04
ircleuserthen yes theres too many files02:04
cilkaycort: Let me guess, you don't have another email address associated with your Gmail account so you can't do a password reset either. If so, in the very unlikely event Google will reset the password for you, you're stuck. You might to try hypnosis. :)02:04
Picithorny_sun: not really... but remember that tab-complete works on the terminal, it makes things a lot faster02:05
jStefanircleuser, Schuenemann: or a removable USB hard drive?02:05
SchuenemannjStefan, or data traveler02:05
ircleuseri think i have an option02:05
thorny_sunPici: thanks-- was hoping for something faster than tab complete-- guess i could always create my own command that does both at once..02:05
Schuenemannircleuser, if you can copy them all to your usb stick, then it's done02:05
ircleuseri have 2 hard drives and an enclosure02:05
Schuenemannwhat does the second HD have?02:06
SpacyJordan_U: nothing found02:06
Jordan_Uthorny_sun: cd $(dirname $_)02:06
cortcilkay: I do but for what ever reason that email address is not receiving emails. It's a redirect to a work account. I was just hoping there was a quick fix to this mess. Like viewing saved passwords in Firefox02:06
hedgiehey, how can i search everywhere includeing within achieves?02:06
ircleuserthe primary has windows on it and more files than the second02:06
timmaoh.....!  I just.  You make me realize, Jordan_U.  Should I do a chmod 755 or 744 ?02:06
Caplainhi02:06
Schuenemannircleuser, the 2nd doesn't have any OS installed?02:06
ircleuserthats righty02:07
ircleuserright**02:07
Schuenemannthen you can copy things to the 2nd02:07
taishi28012I'm having a problem setting up mpd/ncmpc.  I run "mpd --create-db" and it all goes good but when I fire up ncmpc there is nothing in the browse buffer.02:07
ircleusercant boot using the windows installation02:07
Schuenemannircleuser, you boot using ubuntu cd02:08
ircleuseris that in the first menu on the disk?02:08
SchuenemannI think yes02:08
ircleuserok02:08
Schuenemannstart or install, something like that02:08
ircleuserim gonna go try that02:09
ircleuserill be back if it doesnt happen02:09
cilkaycort: I've never seen such an option. The only thing that lets me see saved passwords is KWallet, which itself is password protected. The password reset email might be caught by your spam filter at work and ending up in a spam box somewhere.02:09
thorny_sunJordan_U: thanks!! that's a good idea!! didn't realize about $_02:09
Jordan_Uthorny_sun: np02:09
Schuenemannircleuser, is the 2nd comp next to you too?02:09
cortcilkay: I thought so but the setup for me lets pretty much everything through. I'll have the sys admin check in the morning. Is KWallet like password safe?02:11
Lollipopzmkdir for folder02:11
Lollipopzand for files?02:11
Lollipopzplease : )02:11

BabamI have an Q: My LiveCD has a file error, and is failing at 54% of the install, I was wondering if it was possible to run a install from within in the LiveDisk, but not using the live disk, but a installer saved to the hard disk.02:12
cilkaycort: You wouldn't know what isn't getting through, would you? Password reset emails look an awful lot like spam or a phishing attempt to dumb spam filters. KWallet is a means of storing passwords in a supposedly secure fashion in KDE.02:13
Jordan_USpacy: Might try ##linux02:13
BabamAny one?02:14

jStefanBabam, are you installing using wubi?02:15
Babam@j: No, it's a fresh slate HDD , live disk is 8.04, it has a disk error, so if fails at 54% install, I was wondering if it was possible to run a installer stored on the HDD from with in the liveCD shell02:16
ircleuserok02:17
ircleusercant find how to boot from cd02:17
Schuenemannircleuser, what happened02:17
ircleuserwould that be mount and execute cd rom?02:17
Schuenemanndid you boot from cd? you have to restart your machine for that02:17
ircleuserthere doesnt seem to be an option to boot from cd without installing ubuntu02:18
BabamjStefan: Did you get all that?02:18
jStefanBabam, don't know how to help you. But if you already have the iso download, I suggest burining again, and try using validation if your burning software supports it02:18
Babamoh02:18
Schuenemannircleuser, it should be the first... did you try it?02:18
ircleuserfirst is install ubunto02:18
jStefanBabam, a blank cd isn't too expensive these days :P02:18

Schuenemannircleuser, so it started ubuntu?02:20
ircleuserand followed the option "execute and mount cdrom"02:20
jrgpit has 2 partitions (/ and /home), the latter is huge, I'm deleting the former and creating two partitions in its place02:20

ircleuserat the begining?02:23
computerwhat is a good pdf editor?02:23
Schuenemannafter you chose install ubuntu, what happened exacly?02:23
Jordan_Utimma: Did you only change the permissions on / or did you change them recursively?02:23
SchuenemannI think it should start ubuntu with a GUI02:23
Daisuke_Idoupdates: can you set a screen as left of another screen?02:24
Daisuke_Idoperhaps having the primary monitor in the middle would help eliminate the issues, since after going from 2 to 3 it appears to forget there's a 102:24
timmaJordan_U "sudo chown 744 /" now my problem is the "bash: /usr/bin/sudo: Permission denied"02:24
ircleuserhave you installed windows before where you need to format a partition and its all kinda bluescreen-esque02:24
drksoftm02:24
Daisuke_IdoSchuenemann: sounds like he grabbed the alternate install cd rather than the livecd02:25
SchuenemannDaisuke_Ido, oh... I never used that one02:25
ircleuseri think thats right02:25
SchuenemannDaisuke_Ido, is the alternated cd bootable?02:26
ircleuserso if i get a live cd i can boot to a desktop and move all my data without formatting02:26
Schuenemannalternate*02:26
timmaJordan_U I will have to restart in system rescue or something.02:26
timmaback in ten02:26
ScheissDrogenSchuenemann:shure02:27
Jordan_Utimma: If you only changed the permissions for / then just "sudo chmod 0755 /", if you changed them recursively, re-install02:27
ScheissDrogen!alternate > Schuenemann02:27
ubottuSchuenemann, please see my private message02:27
SchuenemannScheissDrogen, I mean can you start ubuntu with it?02:27
Drako_manyone with a blackberry and use it as bt modem?02:27
Schuenemannoh... it's text-mode02:27
Schuenemannircleuser, I guess you'll have to download and burn the livecd02:28
ircleuserok02:28
ircleuser\whre02:28
ircleuserwhere can i get that?02:28
ScheissDrogenSchuenemann: also , but the repair options of the standard Installer i like better... shot grub ?02:28
usserJordan_U, cant u boot into live cd and chroot02:28
SchuenemannScheissDrogen, not me, he screwed up his windows and wants to save files before installing ubuntu02:29
SpacyJordan_U: a quick question - i've downgraded libasound2 to install libasound2-dev to compile kvm+qemu - to exclude that change from being relevant to my problem, i'd like to reinstall the newest version of libasound2, but apt-get install tells me, i've already got the newest one? is 1.0.15-3ubuntu4 really it? (dpkg -l)02:29
ScheissDrogenSchuenemann: for that the alternate does fine, too02:29
SchuenemannScheissDrogen, but with no GUI?02:29

AgentZedHi folks, I'm about to install Ubuntu 8.04, but I have a wee question.  I have 3 hard drives in my PC, sdb and sdc are RAID'd together and are full of very important things, while sda is separate from the RAID and currently blank.  I want to install onto sda, but when I select 'New partition table' it tells me 'If you procede with creating a new partition table on the device, then all current partitions will be removed'.  I just want to be absolutely cert02:30
AgentZedrring to the blank drive, and isn't including the other two drives under the umbrella of 'all partitions'.02:30
ScheissDrogenSchuenemann: thats your decision, wherever use a terminal or a gui02:30
Syco54645_AAOcasao: incoming pm02:30
SchuenemannScheissDrogen, can the alternate use a GUI (nautilus, for example) without installing?02:31
ircleuserOOOHHHH02:31
ircleuserive been here02:31
ircleuseri cecked the box02:31
ScheissDrogenSchuenemann: yes02:31
ircleuserok02:31
SchuenemannScheissDrogen, how can he do t hat?02:32
ScheissDrogenAgentZed:simply unplug the full ones.. lol 200% shure02:32
PiciSchuenemann: The alternate CD is not a LiveCD.02:32
musikgoatAgentZed: ^^ agreed02:32
ircleuserright02:32
ircleuserok02:32
SchuenemannPici, so he cannot do it?02:32
ircleuserso i download that02:32
musikgoatAgentZed: you can also look at first detected in bios02:32
ircleuserburn it to CD02:32
PiciSchuenemann: Correct.02:32
ircleuserand boot up form there02:33
Schuenemannircleuser, yes, but do not check that box02:33
ircleuserthen i can transfer all my windows data to one drive?02:33
ircleusergreat02:33
Schuenemannyes, exacly02:33
timmaokay Jordan_U what is your solution?  I did "sudo chown 755 /"02:33
ircleuserive been meaning to switch to an open source os for years02:34
Schuenemannyou'd better come here when you have it burnt02:34
AgentZedWell, the other two HDs have Windoze installed on them, so I need them plugged in for Grub to get set up properly.  I think.02:34
Jordan_Utimma: Did you only change / or did you do a recursive change ( when you first changed it to world writable ) ?02:34
ScheissDrogenircleuser:for pure live - cds knoppix is very handy02:35
Jordan_USpacy: Yes, that's the newest version02:35
ircleuserok02:35
komputesScheissDrogen: what do you mean by "pure" ?02:35
ircleuserso i use the knoppix to save data and the alternate to install later?02:36
timmaJordan_U only /02:36
timmaJordan_U I did 744 at first and everything slowly stopped working02:36
AquahallicEvenin' folks02:37

tarelerulzKomputes , is that for  ripping movies or converting .avi you all ready have ? I want it for the ipod03:21

qr_Schuenemann: newish kernels like to call all kinds of things sdx instead of hdx ...03:23
Sladeluqui: your other option, tho IMO undesirable is to uninstall nautilus and install xmonad. Create a symbolic link of xmonad and call it nautilus.03:23
luquieeeeeewwwwwwww03:23
Sladeluqui: ie: ln -s /usr/bin/xmonad /usr/bin/nautilus03:23

VanessaEgood evening.  Question:04:13
=== foetus is now known as Guest11617
stavrosno no no is there a way04:14
sales_guyI went to system settings, entered administrator mode, told it duplicate display on second display device... it told me I needed to log out and restart xserver. I logged out, got a grey screen... nothing I could do from there, so I had to power the machine down. When powering back up the video keeps refreshing and refreshing but is unable to start so it goes to command line mode04:14
Guest11617fd04:14

tj83hello all, I have added a secondary group to my main user... and upon reboot it now is not in the "sudoer" file, any suggestions to restore this?04:14
VanessaEprinter doesn't see it, computer doesn't show anything in dmesg that indicates that it can see it.  I think the card is merely unformatted, but how do I fix this?04:14
stavrosplus there is a problem with update manager04:15

l3dok lets say my login window will not let me make any changes to it I mean it does work but it seems to be locked. its there a file i have to get write permissions for to change it ?04:55
Bogus8Flannel: here is what my apt log says about the kernel update http://www.pastebin.ca/119440104:55
cilkaylowlux: Obviously you haven't read "How to Make Friend and Influence People". You don't come into a support channel asking for *free* help for an OS for which you paid nothing and then whine about how bad it is, how Windows is better, how "linux should fix it", as if "linux" were some corporate entity that owed you something. You, sir, are an ignoramus.04:56
eydaimondanbhfive: alright. thanks for looking04:56
AAAGreyspacebt3  I have funky configs =p take my advice with a grain of salt.  linux _should_ do the right thing given you have kernel support which I assume you do04:56
eydaimondanbhfive: but that's how it's supposed to work, right?04:56
deokanoni guess it`s a bad time to ask a noob question04:56
powertool08AAA: I'm trying to generate a new HOST key, not a regular key, and when i restart the server it says it could not load the new key, unless I generate it without the passphrase. Do host keys not normally have passphrases and user keys do?04:57
cilkaydeokanon: Not at all.04:57
ekowHey does anyone know an effective method of speeding up the boot process?04:57
FlannelBogus8: Mmmm, its because the new one is the same... as the old one.  At least, version-wise.  They've switched to doing it that way, and I honestly don't know why.  You can copy the various .bak files to be ther own entries, and then do update-grub04:57
ckyleekow: overclocking to 5 Ghz?04:57
Greyspacebt3AAA How did your underline,, kewl,, What IRC program / application are you using04:57
eydaimonFlannel: how about you, any ideas?04:57
FlannelBogus8: a decent enough entry name would be 2.6.24-19-36 or something04:57
FlannelBogus8: that'd be plus whatever the other stuff was,of course.04:58
ekowckyle: What is overclocking?04:58
cilkaydeokanon: Most people are generally very nice when they ask and don't whine and their respect is returned with generous support and respect so feel free to ask for help.04:58
AAApowertool08  that sounds like a permissions issue.  I think you want the key to be 0600 (check me on that) see what ther perms are, they should be very conserved04:58
Bogus8Flannel: I tried to copy the top entry down to a 4th entry and just add the .bak to the end of the initrd line04:58
danbhfiveeydaimon: you would think.  Personally, once I get my netconnection setup, it doesnt change on me.  So I don't deal with it that much...04:58
AAAGreyspacebt3  most clients let your use '_'at the beginning and the end'_' like _this_04:58
Greyspacebt3let see _thank you AAA_04:59
prince_jammysGreyspacebt3: that was done by your client, not _his_ :)04:59
AAAGreyspacebt3  happy hacking :)04:59
Greyspacebt3lol04:59
* Greyspacebt3 thank you04:59
FlannelBogus8: Seems like a slim chance that a kernel upgrade would break an irssi script though, to be honest.04:59
eydaimondanbhfive: I know what you mean. I guess I have to figure out what files to change instead and just not rely on it04:59
ckyleekow: I said that somewhat tongue-in-cheek. Overclocking is setting the FSB or multiplier of your cpu to a value higher than it's rated for. Not recommended in most cases, except the occassional enthusiast.04:59
danbhfiveeydaimon: is it changing on every reboot?04:59
nnullanyway to to record desktop to a avi or other common viewable format?04:59
powertool08AAA: its not permissions because it works without the passphrase, changed them anyway but it didn't help05:00
Bogus8Flannel: well, I even created a new user and tried to run the script there and still same error... it worked one day and then power went out and my UPS is apparently shot so I had to "reboot" and after that I started getting the error05:00
eydaimondanbhfive: I've only booted once, but I don't imagine setting it with ifconfig/route would be persistent without saving the configs somewhere :)05:00
FlannelBogus8: did you fsck?05:00
ekowckyle: probably not the best idea for laptops eh?05:00
Bogus8Flannel: don't think so... it's headless so if it was a forced fsck I wouldn't have seen it05:00
AAApowertool08  ah! look at /etc/sshd/sshd_config (or whatever) and look for the setting that talke about the type of auth you wanna use.  I think that is the deal05:01
ckyleekow: correct05:01
cilkayckyle: Overclocking is a necessity because four 2.5GHz cores is simply not enough for Vista :)05:01
FlannelBogus8: alright, well, try that.  Since power outages do funny things.  sudo touch /forcefsck, and then reboot05:01
ckyle;-)05:01
AAAcilkay  that is a simple fix. install linux or force your user to ;)05:01
_Tomthats not nice05:02
Bogus8Flannel: ok, well it's this box... so I'll give it a go and see... I actually have a monitor hooked up right now since that previous grub edit didn't work (reminds me that I need to go fix that ;) )05:02
deokanonah thanks cilkay... okay i installed kubuntu on my laptop, i created a partition ntfs and everything was going fine... but then the password that i setup for my user account didnt work.... so i decided to go back in my winxp OS in disk management and formatted every partition that had linux on it... and when i restarted my computer i get an grub error 17 stage 1.505:02

Greyspacebt3AAA I am in College, I need windows05:05
AAApowertool08  and you restared sshd and it still pukes? did you turn on mad debugging? -ddd _I think_05:05
CycomGreyspacebt3: for what?05:05
ckylestep 2: burn your Windows cd and swear allegiance to lINUX05:05
Greyspacebt3Arood,, thank you for that05:05
AAAGreyspacebt3  bah!!05:05
cilkaydeokanon: I presume you want to boot into Windows now. You'll have to restore the master boot record so that Windows will boot. Grub is attempting to find a boot image on a partition that no longer exists.05:05
CycomGreyspacebt3: seriously. What do you need windows for?05:05
AAAGreyspacebt3  does your college have a citrix network with doze apps?05:05

AAApowertool08  so just start sshd with option that run it in the foreground in debug mode, use the --help to find them05:07
FlannelGreyspacebt3: What sort of circuit creation are you talking about?  SPICE? Eagle?05:07
AAApowertool08  it will run in your term and you can see the details of the breakage05:08
FlannelnullHead|busy: For intrepid?  #ubuntu+1 for intrepid questions05:08
Greyspacebt3and they are very old.. Spice Eagel05:08
FlannelGreyspacebt3: spice is in the repos.  EAGLE is available for linux, although only in a bin I believe, you'd have to check cadsoft's page.05:08
Tempusrnamewhen i put a existing harddrive with ubuntu 7.10 installed into another box and booted it would boot find till it got to running local scrips it would just stay there and not move further in the boot. Should i reconfigure xorg?05:08

cwilluVanessaE, I can't say for sure under kubuntu, but under ubuntu, under printing | server, you tell it to publish connected printers, and then on the other computer, you tell it to show remotely published printers, and it should show up in a few minutes05:20

cilkayckyle: if you're running 32 bit Vista, it will NOT use more than 3GB. In a recent Service Pack, MS added code to report more than 3GB but the OS can still only use up to a maximum of 3GB. For an OS that needs 2GB to be comfortable, 3GB doesn't seem like much headroom, does it?05:20

_TomChaplin2, ubuntu has no problem reading ntfs, so you can still store stuff on the win partitions05:34
Chaplin2how do i make that?05:34
Chaplin2also05:34
bobertdosChaplin2: You can do it in the wizard with the rest of the installatiion.05:34
_Tomit should be part of the "guided resize" thing05:34
Chaplin2im using desptop version05:34
_Tomthats OK05:35
Chaplin2but want to start learning for the server edition05:35
Chaplin2is there a big difference?05:35
Cpudan80no - no difference at all05:35
Kurtlol yes05:35
KurtI would call X a difference05:35
FlannelChaplin2: You can learn the server edition while still having the desktop edition installed.05:35
Cpudan80Chaplin2: Just dont use X05:35
bobertdosChaplin2: You'll basically want to get really comfortable with the command line.05:35
Chaplin2whats X?05:35
AAApowertool08  run it in debug mode again and paste the output05:35
Cpudan80Chaplin2: the graphical env05:35
Chaplin2ok05:35
_Tompoint + click05:35
_Tomeh05:35
celia_tuxheyyy prince?!05:36
AAApowertool08  and also, for fun do this $> netstat -lt| grep ssh05:36
Cpudan80Chaplin2: If you hit CTRL+F1 you get a plain prompt, which is basically what server would be05:36
Chaplin2ok05:36
Cpudan80Chaplin2: CTRL+F7 (or maybe F8) to return to normal mode05:36
cilkayChaplin2: If you care about preserving that Vista installation, don't resize that drive just yet. I'm going to try to find a post to the local LUG mailing list a friend made recently.05:36
bobertdosChaplin2: So practice on the Desktop edition first, and switch when you feel you're ready.05:36
Chaplin2ok will do, so im partioning now05:36
chinoisn't there a setting to stop the mouse pad from reacting within a certain delay of a keystroke ?05:36
Chaplin230 gig05:36
Chaplin2i think it will take a while05:36
FlannelChaplin2: you can run any servers you want from a desktop install.  There's no need to dual boot, that's a waste of harddrive space.05:36
Chaplin2ok05:36
FlannelChaplin2: Linux doesn't differentiate between "desktops" and "servers" they're just programs that are being run.05:37
KurtI've never done the guided resize option (always manual)...I assume it sets a good amount of swap for you?05:37
Chaplin2ok so in server mode no gui05:37
Chaplin2which means less resources05:37
Kurtyes, server install takes up very little space compared to desktop install05:37
celia_tuxhow can this script tell me that just 'lala' has been found (not lal or la or al...) --- command: if grep -q 'lala' /var/log/auth.log; then echo "It's there"; fi05:38
bobertdosChaplin2: What Flannel says is true, but I guess I'm just saying, if you ever end up being forced in to server-only, you just have to get used to less "luxuries."05:38
jtmoneyuhm, the kernel is different for the server edition05:38
Chaplin2ok05:38
jtmoneybut yeah, it shouldn't matter either way05:38
powertool08AAA: stopped it and started again, get this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/43546/05:38
Chaplin2amd a;sp in ext3, its hard to get a file back if you delete right?05:38
Flanneljtmoney: The kernel has different settings, and they only affect hardware compatability and performance.05:38
Chaplin2also*05:38
rredd4installing hardy on sdb.  Will grub install on sda or do i have to do something to make it go to sda?05:38
Kurtcelia_tux: That script should do it as is...does it not?05:38

prince_jammys!br | baiano05:39
ubottubaiano: Por favor use #ubuntu-br ou #ubuntu-pt por ajuda em português. Obrigado.05:39
Chaplin2also, if i want to do a clean wipe of both windows and nux05:40
Kurtrm usually sends things to /dev/null, and yes it's pretty hard to get things back from there :005:40
Chaplin2nix05:40
baiano#brasil05:40
Chaplin2would i just run the windows installation to repartion drive?05:40
bobertdosASrock: Well, you can reinstall grub via an Ubuntu LiveCD if you want. You could also add an entry for Ubuntu into Fedora's menu.lst OR chainload Fedora's grub.05:40
baiano#salvador05:40
AAApowertool08  what does this return? $> file /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key05:40
prince_jammysbaiano: /join #ubuntu-br05:41
KurtI don't think windows comes with a partition editor05:41
celia_tuxin 'grep lala /home/file' grep also search for lal  or la, what can i do to just search for 'lala'????05:41
powertool08AAA: /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key: writable, regular file, no read permission05:41
ASrockbobertdos: i tried installing grub from the live cd and that didnt work it said it couldnt mount the partition, how do i add entries to grub?05:41
powertool08AAA: run with sudo: ASCII text05:42
djhashrredd4: by default it'll install in sda, but just at the end of the questions and partition questions.. there is an advanced button05:42
prince_jammyscelia_tux: it's the other way around. grep 'la' will match 'lala', but grep 'lala' won't necessarily match 'la'05:42
djhashASrock: /boot/grub/menu.lst05:42
celia_tuxoppps yes sorry05:42
rredd4djhash  its installing software now, past partition stuff...05:43
bobertdosASrock:: One way or another, you are going to need to know which partition (according to Grub) Ubuntu is sitting on.05:43
prince_jammyscelia_tux: try grep -wq ....05:43
celia_tuxok05:43
celia_tuxthanks prince05:43
rredd4djhash  too late?05:43
djhashrredd4: it'll do the grub automatically05:43
Kurtcelia_tux: I think the -q will cause the if statement to always return false05:43
rredd4djhash  ok05:43
prince_jammyscelia_tux: that will match lala as a 'word' (see man grep for what grep thinks a word is)05:43
djhashrredd4: its not the end of the world though.. :-)05:44
rredd4djhash  really..... lol05:44

AAApowertool08  er lo....05:54
seaninseattlebobertdos:  well, I only see them when I boot into ubuntu and log in (because I dual boot xp and ubuntu)05:54
bobertdosbdizzle: Ubuntu has a character map preinstalled.05:54
prince_jammysbdizzle: yes, both ubuntu and kubuntu have character map apps. in gnome, i think it's gucharmap05:55
bobertdosseaninseattle: Have you looked at the processes list to see if six instances are actually there?05:55

AAApowertool08  I'm starting to think your ssh keys or filesystem is smoking crack06:06
seaninseattleSo, here's a better question for all you not-so-noobs:  What are the different places that a program could have been executed along the way from Boot (Grub) > GDM Login > Gnome Window Mgr Session?06:07
powertool08AAA: I'm not sure what I did... I decided I wanted to change all my keys, so I deleted all the host keys in /etc/ssh/ then I deleted all the user keys in /home/user/.ssh/ generated new ones with the commands I gave you at the start and then when I started the server it rejected the keys06:07

Flannel!startup | seaninseattle06:07
ubottuseaninseattle: To add programs to start up when you log into your Gnome session go to System>Preferences>Sessions and use the Startup Programs tab.

KurtpoorUbuntuUser: without being able to boot into a linux distribution? no idea :\06:08

Flanneltag: Ah.  Unfortunately not that I'm aware of.  Supposed to just keep UIDs the same ;)06:09
tagindeed06:09
AAApowertool08  you may consider doing something like $> dpkg-reconfigure ssh-server (or similar) I think your config is kinda hosed ;)06:09

prince_jammyssalmon: did you install the necessary libraries?06:39
bclsalmon: have you installed the non-free DVD support?06:39
tanathnnull, you can try 'sudo ubuntu-firewall stop'06:39

tanathbcl, not the same, and that doesn't tell him how to get back06:41

tanathamerinese, ctrl+alt+f7 though06:42
kindofabuzzKurt, it was working until i came in here just wanting to create folders on it lol06:42
prince_jammysalexk0: ask in the irc channel of your script's language06:42
AAAkindofabuzz  well, I'm not sure what is going on. I do know this, you should not be mounting drives in your homedir. you should be using /media or /mnt creating the mointpoints as with the appropriate group permisions.  I really think your problem is that you are trying to mount a /dev in your homedir and your OS don't like it06:42
kindofabuzzAAA, it was working! lol06:42
djhashamerinese: what you want is basically single user mode.. you can choose it in grub.06:42
Kurttry going to System > Administration > Users and Groups and adding yourself to the fuse group06:43
kindofabuzzme?06:43
AAAkindofabuzz  you still shouldn't be mounting devices in your homedir!!06:43
kindofabuzzAAA, why not?06:43
alexk0prince_jammys: it's just a shell script, and i think it has more to do with input/output streams than the shell06:43
bclAAA you can mount anywhere.06:43
prince_jammysalexk0: how are you reading the input?06:43
AAAkindofabuzz  because it is very nonstanard and stuff you can't think of now will break one day because of it, ,trust me ;)06:44
bclthey just won't get 'managed', you'll have to manually umount them.06:44
AAAbcl  yup06:44
alexk0prince_jammys: the program being tested is a Java program, it gets its input from standard input06:44
kindofabuzzAAA, so just mountin a hd i use just for storage in a home dir will break?06:44
AAAbcl  mount /dev/sdb1 /tmp works, but you prolly don't wanna do it ;)06:44
kindofabuzzevidently it will, was working until you had me chowning and chmodinging lol06:45
AAAkindofabuzz  not necessarily, it is just a poor practice06:45

kindofabuzzok just mounted it to /mnt/stuff, permission denied when cd'n into it06:49

powertool08AAA: Well some more googling turned up an email from somebody with the same problem06:50
rogerrogerinit 1 != init 306:50
powertool08AAA: The host keys should be generated _without_ a passphrase, because06:50
powertool08otherwise sshd can't load them.06:50
AAAkindofabuzz  you have to chmod /mnt/stuff to the same group your user is in before you mount it06:50
clarence_Who wanna talk to me?06:50
djhashFlannel: his first question was about getting something like in windows, safe mode with command prompt only.. that is single user mode..06:50
Kurtkindofbuzz, have you tried changing ownership to yourself?06:50
Flannelrogerroger: Ubuntu runlevels 2-5 are the same.06:51
kindofabuzzKurt, you know you can use tab to autocomplete so you get my name right and so i see it =)06:51
powertool08AAA: makes sense I suppose, but I'm alittle bit password crazy06:51
bclamerinese: actually on ubuntu I'm not sure if 3 is right, their inittab defaults to 2 so you many not be able to do that.06:51
AAApowertool08  I have created many ssh keys for sshd without a passphrase, it does work.06:51
kindofabuzzAAA, so sudo chmod -R jason:jason /mnt/stuff06:51

kindofabuzzwhy didn't you just say that in the first place? lol06:55
AAAkindofabuzz  you get what you pay for! ;)06:55
kindofabuzznow i should have rw,users,exec in fstab correct? and all should be ok?06:56

Kurtkindofabuzz: that's a hack...you shouldn't have to do that06:56
AAAkindofabuzz  yah06:56
kindofabuzzwell i had mount rw,users,exec in the first place but couldn't create files or folders06:56
LosowskiHi06:56
Kurtnormally when you mount devices, they are still owned by root (just with permissions given for normal users)06:57
kindofabuzzoh maybe because ~/stuff was owned by root even though it was in ~?  but that was my original question. should't have rw,users,exec "overridden" that?06:57
AAAkindofabuzz  I dunno, that looks right to me I dont have anything to sanity check it against tho06:57
Losowskiok, important question which will help me decide which to install: Which OS operates 'faster" (not referring to boot time, but speed in running desktop applications, etc)...Ubuntu or OpenSuse...your answeres would be greatly appreciated...Thank you!06:58
kindofabuzzLosowski, that's like asking what color is the best06:58
Losowskikindofabuzz: It isn't06:58
tanathLosowski, shouldn't be much difference, and depends which apps you run06:58
AAAkindofabuzz  you prolly created the mount point as sudo?06:58
LosowskiBecause the fastest OS I've used in FreeBSDE06:59
KurtLosowski: I switched from OpenSuSE to Ubuntu a couple of years ago...at least at the time, I noticed an improvement in runtime with Ubuntu over OpenSuSE06:59
Losowski*FreeBSD06:59
AAALosowski  how did you see that?06:59
kindofabuzzLosowski, take it to #ubuntu-offtopic, plenty there tthat will discuss06:59
Losowskitanath: Let's use OpenOffice for example, Inkscape, Gimp06:59
AAALosowski  ok. but that ain't linux nor ubuntu07:00
LosowskiAAA: There are many cpu perfomance programs out there07:00
tanathLosowski, the same app on different *nixes shouldn't be much different. i meant if you were using, say, a kde app instead of a similar gnome version07:00
LosowskiAAA: Well, I'm only comparing Ubuntu and OpenSuse07:00
tanathLosowski, or a leightweight environment & window manager, as opposed to gnome or kde07:00
shadow420how can backup every piece of software I have installed through sudo apt-get install and in Add/Remove appilcations07:00
Kurtnot true.  Depending upon other processes running on a fresh install, the amount of time it takes to start and run the same program on different distros while take differing amounts of time07:01
AAALosowski  I have nothing but troll for ya ;)07:01
LosowskiI think it's a valid question, "which performs faster' ?07:02
LosowskiIn fact, speed is most important to me...not graphical eye candy07:03
pauLabz_hey07:03
tanathLosowski, if you want the best speed for your hardware, you might be best with an optimized build of slackware. it would take forever to compile everything though07:03
LosowskiI couldn't care less of OpenSuse has an elegant graphical installer for example07:03

KlimJayDoes anyone know the current status of the upcoming Ubuntu version?  IE: Would it be coming out in a few weeks, and I'd be wasting my time downloading and installing it now ?07:36
LSD|Ninjadexter: Adium on OS X :P It's based on the same libpurple back end as pidgin but the lack of video/voice support doesn't bother me. I installed Skype for when I need those features.07:36
Gargantuaarvind_khadri, was that for me?07:36
Gargantuaerr nevermind07:36
lintcan somenoe tell me why shutdown and restart have dissapeared from my logout menu?07:36
KlimJayOr would be like in "Alpha"07:36
m0u5eKlimJay: intrepid is coming out in october07:37
m0u5eKlimJay: currently its alpha 407:37
d1g1talpsykolint right click on the panel and add it back07:38
KlimJaym0u5e: So another words, I might as well wait?07:38
m0u5eKlimJay: theres at least 1 more alpha till beta... and a few more weeks after that till RC07:38
m0u5eKlimJay: why dont you try hardy now?07:38
m0u5eKlimJay: its nice07:38
KlimJaym0u5e: I have limited bandwith , a "Fair Access Policy" of downloading 375 MBs in a "rolling 24 hour period"07:38
m0u5eo__O;07:39
lintd1g1talpsyko: no way to do so07:39
FlannelKlimJay: You'll likely want to do Hardy then, and stick with it for at least a month after Intrepid is released.  The first few weeks are rather update-heavy07:39
KlimJaym0u5e: I have 2-5 AM of free downloading at about 122 KB/sec (IE: about 400 MBs per hour)07:39

Smurfsloverhi there07:40
Smurfsloverubuntu broke my xserver07:40
Smurfsloverhow can i reset it?07:40
KlimJayTorrents and eMule, and some other P2P screw up my HN7000S somehow.07:40
KlimJay(Sat modem)07:40
FlannelKlimJay: I'd strongly recommend you try Hardy.  And also, if you like it enough, you can stick with it for two whole years and be able to upgrade directly to 10.04 when it comes out.07:41
KlimJayBut, I have been thinking that Xubuntu could be the best bet, I could add everything I wanted and use it more like a "basic" version.07:41
KlimJayAnd the GUI would make it faster?07:41
m0u5eKlimJay: mmm kinda... ive used xubuntu before07:41
KlimJayperhaps?07:41
m0u5eKlimJay: and ive tried xubuntu hardy as well07:41
m0u5eKlimJay: i recommend trying hardy with gnome though, gnomes gotton a lot better07:42
seekingtruthhello sinners07:42
KlimJaym0u5e: yeah, I don't have a Xubuntu disk (as they don't ship'em) though.07:42
m0u5eKlimJay: xubuntu is too minimalistic for my tastes... and its not *that* light on the resources anymore07:42

bolroganybody know what target to write in a makefile to get make to compile all of the sources in a directory into their corresponding objects in another directory?09:05
zcat[1]krishna: well setting up a squid proxy requires some basic network knowledge. You might need to learn up a little or get someone to help you. Is there a LUG in your area?09:05
Xcercaamerinese that would be a gnome or compiz setting09:05
amerinesexcerca: yeah not sudo'ing really tripped me up09:06

krishnai know a person who helps me out but he is also not too sure about how to get GUI for squid09:06

Metatron do i stick it on the end or something, like imap.server.com:port10:26
pajamianubunt3: well, there may be a way to customize the live CD, I haven't tried it.  To be honest I don't recommend using the live CD on a regular basis, imo it's good for trialling ubuntu and for rescue, and recovery operations, etc.10:26
Metatroni thought there was a way to save a session to a file or usb device with live CD10:27

I want to be able to rip my CDs on to it without using a monitor - put the CD in, some piece of software says "that's an audio CD" - copies the tracks to a directory and then ejects the CD. At the moment all the software I can find requires human interaction. Does anyone know of a package that will rip CDs without human interaction?10:31

xkpepajamian, the wired connection it says roaming mode, im running ubuntu on vmware10:35
pajamianxkpe: I would try taking it off roaming mode and change it to either static or DHCP10:35
pajamianstetho: I think there's a setting that controls what application gets launched when an audio CD is inserted, it is set by default to Audio CD Extractor, you can write your own shell script and set it to that instead.10:36
stethopajamian: The box is built on Ubuntu server not a desktop version. Any ideas where this setting might be?10:38
pajamianstetho: hrmmmm, not right off the top of my head.  Maybe it's in fstab or a property of automount10:39

pajamian[nrx]: ok, if they are badly scratched you can take them to a video store and they will usually run them through their resurfacing machine for about $5 or less...10:43
pajamian[nrx]: you can use dd to copy the contents to a .iso image file10:43
[nrx]pajamian, not scratched :) - can't even read them properly. I get errors: end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 010:44

[nrx]I can't even mount it though :s10:44
pajamian[nrx]: you don't need to mount it for dd10:45

monostoneI somehow managed to mess up the keymappings for my logitech USB G11 keyboard media keys. Xorg.0.log is beggining to report a "(II) Unreported Prefix0 scancode: 0x22" message, i investigated a bit and saw that the hex codes the messages print are the keydown scancode of the media keys as detected by running "showkey -s". BUT xev does NOT detect the media keys anymore, on the other hand in gnome keyboard shortcuts the keys ARE dete11:29
monostonected, also running "lshal -m" does detect the keysym for all the media keys. Media players like Rythymbox continue to have the media keys working, but totem has lost them. Any pointers as to what the problem is? could this be a kernel keymap issue? or since the message appears in my Xorg.0.log, is it a X issue?11:29

ActionParsnip!ask | loops12:14
ubottuloops: Please don't ask to ask a question, ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely answer. :-)12:14
Oli``I'm trying to copy the contents of a dir to another keeping permissions (recursive). I don't want to copy the actual dir. I'm trying rsync but it doesn't grab the hidden files when I specify the origin path as /path/*12:14
soundrayioops: do you see any error message except the initramfs prompt?12:14
hardcoreoh ok, well anyway, time to reboot, thank you... this propably gets easier when i get decent resolution, 640x480 is killing me12:14
ActionParsnipOli``: co /path/to/folder /pathe/to/detination12:15
ioopssound yes, a lot of error mounting messge like /proc /sys or /root failed mount12:15
ioopssoundray: yes12:15
soundrayioops: what was the last thing you did before it stopped working?12:16
ActionParsnipOli``: http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-592788.html12:16
ioopshumm I think I configure the os only for plugins stuff12:16
concaveis there a way to install .debs into my home directory as a non-root user?12:17
xkpei configured static ip, but my dns keeps changing after awhile no matter how many times i change it, what can be changing my dns?12:17
klezalauh yes12:17
soundrayOli``: give rsync the source as /path/ instead of /path/* and adapt the target12:17
ActionParsnipconcave: only root or sudo can install12:17
ioopssoundray: yes it s this right, but before I upgrade the ubuntu and the kernel changed12:17
concaveActionParsnip, off the top of my head, i'm wondering how .deb files are packaged.  would there be any potential in extracting them into my home directory?12:18
Starchasersoundray: thnx12:18
concave(although that would negate dependency handling, but oh well)12:18
ActionParsnipconcave: if you run groups in terminal you will see what groups you belong to, if you are in Admin then you can sudo / gksu stuff12:18
soundrayioops: can you boot the old kernel? It should still be on the grub menu.  You may have to hit Esc to see the grub menu during boot.12:18
Rioting_pacifistive removed a swap partion from /etc/fstabs but cryptsetup keeps looking for it12:18
ActionParsnipconcave: you can extract them, yes12:18
concaveActionParsnip, would i find that in the man page for dpkg or apt-get or ...?12:19
ioopssoundray: good question I did check12:19
ioopsI diidn t check12:19
ActionParsnipconcave: ar vx /path/to/file.deb12:19
Pirate_Hunterrampageoberon: np12:20
soundrayioops: if you do that, and it boots the old kernel, try 'sudo apt-get -f install' to see if this ties up any loose ends from the update.12:20
concaveawesome!  thanks ActionParsnip.  i forgot all about ar.12:20
ActionParsnipconcave: or use ark /path/to/file.deb12:20
ioopssoundray: ok I will do it12:20
concavewhat's the general opinion on setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH, assuming local paths are set _last_ (and "standard" paths are set first)?12:21
ActionParsnipconcave: no idea, sorry12:21
ioopssoundray: normaly ubuntu don t remove the old kernel after upgrade ?12:22
concave(or does LD_LIBRARY_PATH only affect additional places to look for libs?  i.e., standard paths are checked first, and then afterwards, whatever is placed in LD_LIBRARY_PATH)12:22
pajamianconcave: standard paths are checked first, LD_LIBRARY_PATH is for additional places12:22
soundrayconcave: I've had to do it occasionally. By default, it's unset in ubuntu12:22
pajamianconcave: I take it back, actually LD_LIBRARY_PATH is checked first, I think12:23
ouaibe_stupid autoconnect...12:23
soundrayioops: that's right, it keeps them around to help with precisely the kind of problem you are experiencing.12:23
iixhow do i add a program to start up as service ?12:23
ioopssoundray: ok12:23
ioopsIwill try your solution12:23
soundrayioops: it only installs the new kernel and adapts the menu.lst so the new one will be booted.12:23
kmgI can't boot regularly or into recovery with any of the many kernels I have: my usplash segfaults with an "error 6."  anything I can do about this?12:24
hkBstdid alpah 5 get released?12:24
KoolDhow to restart a service??12:24
pajamianiix: if you want to start it as a service you need an init.d file for it, if you just want to start it when you log into gnome you goto System / Preferences / Sessions12:24
soundrayiix: you write a SysV init style script. There is a template in /etc/init.d/skeleton. 'man update-rc.d' to learn how to activate it.12:24
concaveah ha http://unixhelp.ed.ac.uk/CGI/man-cgi?ld.so+8; you're right pajamian12:25
pajamianKoolD: sudo /etc/init.d/servicename restart12:25
soundray!intrepid | hkBst12:25
ubottuhkBst: 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!12:25
ioopssoundray: it will be possible to replace the new by the old iin the menu that s right ?12:25
iixthanks.12:25
KoolDpajamian: thanks12:25
pajamianconcave: it works that way so you can use non-standard locations for libraries and override specific libraries for specific programs.12:25
soundrayioops: yes, but for now you should just try to boot the old one by selecting it once.12:26
kmgI can't boot regularly or into recovery with any of the many kernels I have: my usplash segfaults with an "error 6."  anything I can do about this?12:26
concaveyeah, i was confused at first because i thought that LD_PRELOAD would be searched first, then "standard" locations, then LD_LIBRARY_PATH12:26
hkBstthanks soundray12:26
pajamianconcave: I'm not sure what LD_PRELOAD is to be honest.12:26
ioopssoundray: ok I will try and I say later because the computer is not in the same building12:27
concavepajamian, you can override shared libraries by setting it.12:27
ActionParsnipkmg: uninstall bootsplash in any boot you can get12:27
soundraykmg: your usplash segfaults? Are you sure?12:27
concavei think that LD_PRELOAD only applies to shared libs, and LD_LIBRARY_PATH applies to all libs?12:27
ActionParsnipkmg: you may need to boot to live cd to edit the files that kick it up12:27
Rioting_pacifistive removed a swap partion from /etc/fstabs but cryptsetup keeps looking for it12:27
pajamianconcave: at any rate, I've used LD_LIBRARY_PATH when I needed to compile a program from source and needed newer versions of libs than what comes with ubuntu.12:28
kmgActionParsnip: that's what I was afraid of.12:28
kmgsoundray: yeah, it says usplash is segfaulting12:28
ActionParsnipkmg: it may be the case if you cant get any sort of boot then youll have to carve it out then remove it12:28
ActionParsnipRioting_pacifist: http://linux.die.net/man/8/cryptsetup12:29
soundraykmg: perhaps you can hit E in the grub menu to edit the boot entry, then edit the kernel line to remove 'quiet splash'12:29
kmgActionParsnip: if I just uninstall the splash, then it will do a regular boot?12:29
ActionParsnipkmg: should do12:29
kmgsoundray: i'll try that12:29
concavethe problem i've run into, and i don't think i'm the first, is that when compiling vim as a regular user, i'm getting an error during ./configure regarding having no terminal library installed (like ncurses).  so it looks like i can either install ncurses-dev, or build it from source.  either way, since i'm a non-root user, i'm going to have to point to the right library during vim's ./configure.12:29
pajamianconcave: why not just install all the build dependancies for vim from apt?12:30
pajamianconcave: sudo apt-get build-dep vim12:30
Kartagishi again12:30
iturkhi there friends I am having problems trying to access a share drive mounted has vfat on fstab! Can someone have a look at this - http://pastebin.com/d47c77cd212:30
concavei'm not a sudoer :-/12:31
pajamianconcave: ahhh, I see12:31
concavebut i didn't know there was a build-dep option. that's kinda cool!12:31
pajamianconcave: and hence you can't install vim from apt either.12:32
concavebingo12:32
Pirate_Hunteris it possible to have to firewalls runing without a problem i.e. firehol and ufw?12:32
soundrayconcave: Ubuntu is difficult for development if you aren't in the admin group12:32
pajamianconcave: good luck, sounds like you're being forced to do a lot of work for nothing.12:32
concavepajamian, yeah, i'm going to end up having to contact the sysadmin... *grumble*12:32
soundrayconcave: can't you download and
