zcat[1]problem; my laptop has ati rage mobility chipset; if I boot up with an external monitor it freezes just after I log in. This seems to be caused by the 'clone display' setting, if I log in without the externam screen, turn that off, then plug the screen in, log out and back in, sometimes everything works. But something keeps turning 'clone display' back on. What?00:09

Area_51ok i am going to go read up on that page00:11
ScheissDroge1zcat: little outdated, but good ideas : !dualhead00:11

Area_51I am sure i can change with nano orvim00:12
Area_51my keyboard and this rolling tray suck00:12
zcat[1]I don't want dual-head. I want xorg to act as if I have only ONE display and just let the chipset do whatever it did right trough the whole startup process...00:12
OrangeKyomaxflax: i dunno did you try right clicking the panel, selecting properites, and adjusting the width in pixels?00:12
maxflaxalex-weej : Now I have to list of the same , and both are small in size.00:13
OrangeKyomaxflax: you can change it to something really big like 96 , if you need 4 rows of program tabs00:13
zcat[1]because it's only when ubuntu tries to get all clever and handle the second display for me that things get screwed up.. it locks up hard and ONLY holding the power button for four seconds will get me out again.. not even sysreq sequences work00:13
ScheissDroge1zcat:maybe try to copy live's xorg.conf ?!00:13
zcat[1]and nothing gets logged about it00:13
zcat[1]ScheissDroge1: ubuntu keeps changing it though. I should set it immutable perhaps?00:14
alex-weejmaxflax: can you add a new panel and try it?00:14
zcat[1]btw now using gNewSense and it seems to have exactly the same problem too00:14
alex-weejmaxflax: just context-click the space in a panel and choose New Panel00:15
ScheissDroge1zcat: ?? no log   /var/log/xorg.conf0.log ?  if you don't configure, ubuntu shouldn't change xorg00:15
zcat[1]ScheissDroge1: it just locks up HARD a few seconds after login. Nothing gets logged anywhere.00:15
n3himazcat[1], have you tried dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg00:15
zcat[1]n3hima: duh00:15
ScheissDroge1zcat:tried xorg from live ?00:16
joejoecircusboyzcat[1]: just ran a few tests....    one big diff between sudo -i and sudo -s, is that 'sudo -s' does NOT set your environment correctly for root. Instead it assumes the calling user's enviroment.  (This matters if you expect 'cd ~' to go to /root, as it should)00:16
maxflaxOrangeKyo : that only makes it higher not wider..00:16
alex-weejjoejoecircusboy:  "SHOULD" is subjective.00:16
zcat[1]ScheissDroge1: All I want to know is what smartarse autoconfig shit is turning the 'clone display' feature on, so I can dissable that00:16
maxflaxalex-weej : it might be something with the expand option..00:16
alex-weejpersonally I consider root to be a state, not a different user.00:17
joejoecircusboyalex-weej:  $HOME    *should* match the entry for your uid in /etc/passwd.  Anything else is *idiotic*00:17
zcat[1].. because it works prefectly without it, and locks up 100% consistently when it's on and I have a seconds display attched00:17
ScheissDroge1zcat: your g-card ? which driver ?00:17

Python77hehe, well I want to become a complete computer geek, I was told the journey to becoming that is to learn computer programming, I am also majoring in web development in college, so wanted to pick languages that I could use and would benefit my major00:38
Osseusser - Should I remove the current ffmpeg with synaptic or a-g remove?00:38
Jordan_Uzcat[1]: I think I found the config file at least00:38
n3himazcat[1], ok, open up gconf-editor and try to find the clone screens option somehere00:39
usserOsse, sudo apt-get remove libswscale1d libpostproc1d libavutil1d libavformat1d libavcodec1d ffmpeg00:39
=== azhar27 is now known as azharcs
MellowYellowjoejoecircusboy, not really, haven't read anything on it in about 10 years00:39
bastid_raZor!info ffmpeg00:39
ubottuffmpeg (source: ffmpeg): multimedia player, server and encoder. In component universe, is optional. Version 3:0.cvs20070307-5ubuntu7.1 (hardy), package size 187 kB, installed size 664 kB00:39
Python77musikgoat could you exploit on algorithms?00:39
Python77what you meant by that00:39
usserPython77, yea python can be used for net but its not its primary use00:39
joejoecircusboyMellowYellow: ah, thanks anyway00:39
Osseusser - Okay, done.00:39
usserOsse, nice00:40
Python77usser, what is nets primary use? Xhtml? php right?00:40
usserOsse, sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update00:40
usserPython77, php, java00:40
MellowYellowPython77, well python is pretty easy to pick up, not sure how useful it will be for web development though. PHP on the otherhand would be a good thing to learn, and it should not be too dificult for you as the syntax is quite similar to C... at least at first00:40
Osseusser - Done.00:40
Jordan_Uzcat[1]: The file seems to be ~/.config/monitors.xml00:40
usserOsse, sweet now sudo apt-get install ffmpeg00:41
musikgoatPython77: sorry, afk,  algorithms are how programs work, it is core to programming00:41
echelonwhat's phpize?00:41
Osseusser - Done00:41
usserPython77, python is awesome for quick and dirty gui programming00:41
Python77could you all define gui programming?00:41
echeloncan't you take this elsewhere?00:42
Python77like, can't all programming languages kind of do the same thing?00:42
musikgoatmaking a web app that you access from a client browser00:42
usserOsse, ok do dpkg -l | grep ffmpeg the packages that u removed at first should have this version 3:0.cvs20070307-5ubuntu7.1+medibuntu100:42
Python77ok so web application that you can access from client browser00:42
musikgoatPython77: no00:42
n3himaPython77, all languages are equal, but some languages are more equal than others00:42
Chousukethis is offtopic.00:42
Osseusser - There is a list of that version there, yes.00:42
ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, #ubuntu+1 supports the development version of Ubuntu and #ubuntu-offtopic is for random chatter. Welcome!00:42
OrangeKyopython77: nah i learned that java you can't manage the memory, it sort of just does it on its own without your control00:42
usserOsse, cool now lets try to convert a file00:43
Osseusser - Awesome! \o/00:43
ChousukeOrangeKyo: that's known as garbage collection :)00:43
Python77hmm... ok let me ask this question, If I want to become a complete computer geek (White-hat hacker) where should I start? what should I start learning? I was told programming00:43
zcat[1]zcat@mbeki:~$ sudo chattr -i .gnome2/monitors.xml   --- Wonder if that'll stop it?00:43
usserOsse,  ffmpeg -i filename.avi -vcodec h263 -vb 600000 -ar 8000 -ac 1 test.3gp00:43
ChousukePython77: just have an interest in all things computer'y00:43
usserOsse, -i filename.avi specifies the input file u want to convert00:44
ChousukePython77: electronics works too00:44
MellowYellowPython77, but programming is the start of serious computer geekery00:44
ChousukePython77: programming is a good skill for a hacker, though.00:44
ChousukePython77: start with lisp!00:44
chetnickguys, which program for burning you would recomend?00:44
Python77Chousuke, I just feel like I am not being productive with my time, not really feeling like I understand everything00:44
OrangeKyopython77 you should learn how to use the terminal and program in c++. try downloading a c++ book00:44
Python77what is lisp?00:44
musikgoatthere is too many different directions to go,  but most tend to go towards programming and hardware modding00:44
MellowYellowChousuke, I did!00:44
usserOsse, -vcodec h263 specifies the codec of the output file, 3gp uses h26300:44
Python77hardware modding?00:44
ChousukeOrangeKyo: no, not C++ :((((00:44
musikgoatChousuke: thats mean!00:44
MellowYellowthe greatest language made by man00:44
Osseusser - "Error while opening codec for output stream #0.0 - maybe incorrect parameters such as bit_rate, rate, width or height"00:45
usserOsse, -vb 600000 specifies video bitrate in this case 600Kbps00:45
ChousukeC++ is an awful language to start with00:45
joejoecircusboyPython77: You'll want to be familiar with operating systems, programming languages, and networking. You'll want to learn and experience multiple variants of each domain00:45
MellowYellowlisp is beauty incarnate00:45
Python77I know that linux kernel was programed with C00:45
chetnickPython77, lisp is programming language, usually used for artificial inteligence00:45
=== azharcs is now known as azhar27
usserOsse, whats the line right before that?00:45
Python77whow AI?00:45
Chousukelisp is a family of languages, actually.00:45
Chousukeas well as being a language00:45
Python77so should I learn python first or lisp?00:45
Osseusser - "Valid sizes are 128x96, 176x144, 352x288, 704x576, and 1408x1152. Try H.263+."00:45
n3hima>>> #ubuntu-offtopic00:45
Jordan_Uzcat[1]: Can you pastebin your ~/.config/monitors.xml ?00:46
ChousukePython77: whatever you like :)00:46
OsseShould i try "+"?00:46
Python77And does anyone have any good links to learning how to use terminal?00:46
KenBW2why is Ubuntu telling me i can use Restricted ATI graphics drivers when I'm managing fine OOTB?00:46
ChousukePython77: those are good choices though.00:46
MellowYellowhttp://mitpress.mit.edu/sicp/full-text/book/book.html is how I learned lisp, great book00:46
usserOsse, oh ok seems h263 is picky about the resolution00:46
chetnickguys, which program for burning you would recommend?00:46
ChousukePython77: start with MellowYellow's URL00:46
musikgoatPython77: it depends what you want to do,  you originally said web development -> therefore learn server side scripting languages, like php, jsp, and asp00:46
ChousukePython77: SICP is *the* book on programming00:46
ChousukePython77: it's not *easy*, but it's good :)00:47
MellowYellowbah, I read it in high school00:47
musikgoatPython77: and javascript+html+css00:47
n3hima!offtopic | Python7700:47
ubottuPython77: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, #ubuntu+1 supports the development version of Ubuntu and #ubuntu-offtopic is for random chatter. Welcome!00:47
usserOsse, modify your command to look like this ffmpeg -i filename.avi -vcodec h263 -s 352x288 -vb 600000 -ar 8000 -ac 1 test.3gp00:47
jokercan some one tell me the easy way to upgrade bluez to the Bluez4.300:47
MellowYellowof course it was a slightly older version...00:47
ChousukeMellowYellow: SICP is still not easy, you're just smart.00:47
chetnickPython77, you should start with some basics first, try "Computer Science Illuminate" its a good introduction00:47
usserOsse, note -s 352x288 that specifies the output video resolution00:47
ErikWestrupWould this be a correct crontab entry if I want to run a command every 45 minute? http://paste.ubuntu.com/44042/00:47
Python77sorry obottu00:48
krunchyfroghi there00:48
ChousukeMellowYellow: of course, I'm not saying it's exactly difficult either; It just requires effort :)00:48
Python77computer science illuminate?00:48
Chousukeanyway, time for me to sleep00:48
Osseusser - I get alot of "[h263 @ 0xb7e1a9a8]warning, clipping 1 dct coefficients to -127..127"00:48
musikgoatilluminated i think00:48
Python77thanks for info00:48
MellowYellowChousuke, lol, actually the first chapter gave me headaches. I could not figure out why any human being woul design a language that does math like lisp00:48
MUAlguem ai00:48
usserOsse, thats normal00:48

MUsou portugues00:49
ChousukeMellowYellow: oh you didn't like prefix notation? :p00:49

echelonHEY! who took phpize out of the php package??00:50
zcat[1]well bugger me, making the display.xml immutable WORKED.00:50
ChousukeMellowYellow: well people always have problems accepting *different* things :)00:50
echelonthat's why i never install ubuntu on my own PCs00:50
MellowYellowechelon, what!?!? when did they do that?00:50
n3himaMU, /join #ubuntu-br00:50
echelonMellowYellow: what?00:50
spiritssightDoes any one know what I need to do to see the different networks (wireless)00:51
zcat[1]but I'd really rather find out what piece of shit is changing my settings to 'clone display' every login!00:51
MellowYellowtake phpize out?00:51
krunchyfrogI think I pooped my xserver installation.  I was trying to install frets on fire but it kept crashing so I thought it was my opengl that was wrong so I tried to fix it but now my xconfig doesn't even want to take the proprietary nvidia driver correctly.  Every bootup I get prompted by a dialog box saying my config is not ok but whatever I do in there doesn't fix anything00:51
tritiumzcat[1]: watch the language, please00:51
usserOsse, np mgiht also add -ab 6400000:51
Osseusser - What does that do?00:52
zcat[1]so, anybody know what part of gnome is automatically detecting the second monitor and overriding the setting I explicitly set?00:52
usserOsse, sets the bitrate of audio stream to 64kbps00:52
zcat[1]tritium: sorry; very very annoyed here00:52
OsseThanks usser.00:52
KenBW2for me to view php files will sudo apt-get install php5 install apache et al for me?00:52
krunchyfrogI just want to re create my xorg.conf that was working fine on my card's s-video out to my tv (since my tv is my main display)00:52
MellowYellowzcat[1], do you have twinview or xinearama installed?00:53
usserOsse, no problem00:53
KattollikisdI have problems with a plugging in my amsn called "transparent", can someone help me pleaces?00:54
Jordan_Uzcat[1]: Can you pastebin your ~/.config/monitors.xml ?00:54
evsthomascan anyone here assist me in signing the code of conduct? I've gotten all the way to the Signed Code section but it says "The signed text does not match the Code of Conduct. Make sure that you signed the correct text (white space differences are acceptable).00:54
zcat[1]MellowYellow: not intentionally. This is a brand new gNewSense install, only free drivers, and updates. And it's doing exactly the same thing as Ubuntu was; everything works perfectly on both displays right up until I log in. xorg thinks it only has one display, the ATI card handles both outputs....00:54
MellowYellowkrunchyfrog, boot without a gui and reconfigure  xorg using xorgcfg00:55
KattollikisdI have problems with a plugging in my amsn called "transparent", can someone help me pleaces?00:55
krunchyfrogaha!  thanks MellowYellow00:55
zcat[1].. after I log in 'something' detects the second monitor and turns on 'clone display' which makes the whole laptop freeze totally and I have to power cycle it00:55
Windsurfer619My sister installed skype a week agoish, and she just noticed that it takes ages to boot (more than 4 minutes, where it was less than a minute before) as it is just hanging on a black screen. Any idea why or how to fix?00:55
zcat[1]All I want it to know what's cahnging that setting so I can dissable it00:55
MellowYellowzcat[1], ick00:55
zcat[1]right now I have the monitor.xml set immutable and it's working exactly how I want. But that's not a real solution, it's an ugly hack00:56
ozkelligirlhi all00:56
MellowYellowzcat[1], lol00:56
evsthomasWhat constitutes a signature on the Code of Conduct?00:56
ubottupastebin is a service to post multiple-lined texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu.com (make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic)00:56
echelonwhat package contains the ffmpeg headers?00:56
jgedeonI'm normally a gnome user but thought I would give Kubuntu a try on another system...  Should I do Kde4 or not?00:57
zcat[1]perhaps I should just file a bug?00:57
KattollikisdI have problems with a plugging in my amsn called "transparent", can someone help me pleaces?00:57
n3himazcat[1], it's a hack, but every system is a bit ugly00:57
krunchyfrogis there some kind of xorg.conf generator on the net?00:57
KattollikisdI have problems with a plugging in my amsn called "transparent", can someone help me pleaces?00:57
zcat[1]I should not have to set config files immutable. Gnome should NOT be overriding my settings on a whim!00:57
wersdaluvI'm trying to connect computers connected to a common netgear router via ssh. how do I know each comp00:57
n3himaI totally agree00:58
ozkelligirlubottu what is the best place to get 3D fx for ubuntu ?00:58
ubottuI am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)00:58
MellowYellowzcat[1], I would do kde4 and then file a bug, it would be good to be able to "prove" that gnome is doing the modifying. Otherwise you really don't know where to file the bug to.00:58
alicevhow can i md5 unhash00:58
Digit4lIt's there any program to manage rapidshare links ???00:58
MellowYellowalicev, huh?00:58
jribalicev: doesn't make sense00:58
zcat[1]MellowYellow: every time I run gnome-display-settings it turns it back on, even after I explicitly turn it off.00:58
echelonWHERE ARE the ffmpeg HEADERS?00:59
jribDigit4l: not a public one, no00:59
zcat[1]going to file a bug now.00:59
KattollikisdI can I put a transparent background on the Nautilus?00:59
MellowYellowooh there we go... ok can you run gnome-display-settings from terminal with verbose output? Maybe you can figure out what it calls that way01:00
IndyGunFreakKattollikisd: of course01:00
spiritssightHELP, I am trying to see wireless networks please help01:00
Kattollikisd<IndyGunFreak>  how?01:00
porotoHi i need help, installed a theme,  but i want the bar transparent, and when i put the transparence, the side of applications, system and the clock area , stays the same! thenks01:00
n3himaspiritssight, what's the problem?01:00
echelonmaybe ubuntu should quit marketing their product to businesses so real admins don't have to deal with its poor package maintenance01:00
evsthomasI realize this is trivial for everyone but I can't figure out the signing process... is there another chat for this?01:00
zcat[1]gnome-display-settings has no manpage and no --help or -h option. suggestions?01:00
Jordan_Uspiritssight: What wireless chipset?01:00
spiritssightechelon: I can not seem to get it to show the networks in the area for wireless01:01
MellowYellowspiritssight, that was the lamest way to ask for help I have seen in a while01:01
teqsupportHELP... I'd really love to get the 3d desktop working on Gos01:01
Jordan_Uzcat[1]: No idea, I had to strace the damn thing just to figure out that it was writing to monitors.xml :)01:01
MellowYellowspiritssight, try formulating a coherent question rather than just saying help01:01
jribDigit4l: if you have an account, you can setup wget to automatically login I believe01:01
zcat[1]sorry, gnome-display-properties01:01
echelonspiritssight: gee, i really wanted to know01:01
echelon 01:01

echelonyou guys are useless01:02
Kattollikisd<IndyGunFreak>  ohhh ok01:03
evsthomascan anyone see my text? this can't be this difficult... its the very first step...01:03
zcat[1]it doesn't seem to accept any options at all01:03
Kattollikisd<IndyGunFreak>  thanks anyway01:03
spiritssightechelon:  can you pm me so I can see what your questions are easer thanks01:03
Osseusser - I don't really know, was just going to find that out =)01:03

droopsta915whats the best linux program to make and record music in a studio?01:03
ozkelligirlanyone know of a good 3D setup for ubuntu and where to get it?01:03
zcat[1]bah, going to go calm down for a while, I can't file a bug report when I'm thips issed off.01:04
usserOsse, cause i was just writing a gui tool for almost the same purposes, it is for my video player. i can adjust it to your causes01:04
Osseusser - I just know that it is a 3 inch screen.01:04
Osseusser - Sounds awesome :O01:04
MellowYellowozkelligirl, what do you mean by 3d? You want things popping out at you? you want a spiffy rotating cube? You want a 3d world you can walk around in?01:04
droopsta915lol mellowyellow :)01:05
usserOsse, just find out resolution and i can give it to u01:05
Osseusser - PM'd a link.01:05

stepa1My Computer wasn't operating and I shut it off with the button.  Now when i turn it one, i get NTLDR is missing error.  Do I need to reinstall grub?  (I only have a Ubuntu installation, no windows, but i do have an NTFS formated drive)01:06
droopsta915anyone ever try rosegarden to make music?01:06
KattollikisdCan someone tell me how to put a transparent background in the nautilus pleases? :S01:07
Osseusser - Is there some program that can list me the needed info about video files? Dimensions, codecs and such?01:07
droopsta915mellowyellow: thanks, use audacity,  i like that program01:07
ASrocki am getting a new wireless router and wireless pci card for my desktop what do you guys recommend?01:08
usserOsse, if u have any video files encoded to play on this device u can use vlc to obtain that info01:08
Osseusser - Okay, how exactly?01:08
Jordan_UASrock: Wireless G or pre-N ?01:09
ozkelligirlmellow i'm new to this how do i get that?01:09
christozIs Ubuntu safe from virus-spyware threads?01:09
Jordan_Uchristoz: Yes01:09
ASrockright now im using wireless G but is there such a thing as a wireless N router that laptops with G cards could still connect to?01:09
christozJordan_U ok agree, but why?01:09
usserOsse, open the file with vlc go to view->Stream and media info01:09
Osseusser - Okay, two secs.01:10
usserOsse, advanced information01:10
KattollikisdCan someone tell me how to put a transparent background in the nautilus pleases? :S01:10
MellowYellowASrock, all wireless N routers are backwards compatible01:10
Jordan_U!virus | christoz01:10
ubottuchristoz: A/V software is available, however read this to understand why Linux does not have a virus problem: http://librenix.com/?inode=2101:10
ASrockand what are the advantages of N01:10
Osseusser - 320x24001:11
n3himaASrock, faster, better range01:11
MellowYellowozkelligirl, did you seriously just say "yes that sounds good?" I give you a list as examples for clarification purposes and your answer is YES!?01:11
ASrockhow much better range?01:11
usserOsse, cool and u sure its 3gp not divx cause i see in the specs it plays divx01:11
MellowYellowwell lets put it this way I have a better connection to my neighbors N router than I do to my G router 5 feet away from me01:12
Osseusser - Yeah, I tried adding a regular .avi, I don't think it'll play that..01:12
usserOsse, did it have any sample video files on it?01:12
* MellowYellow slaps ozkelligirl with a large trout01:13
usserOsse, were they 3gp?01:13
linxehMellowYellow: try a different channel ?01:13
Osseusser - No sample vid's as far as I know.01:13
ozkelligirlnot nice01:13
MellowYellowlinxeh, ?01:13
blakeXis empathy going to replace pidgin for 8.04?01:13
linxehMellowYellow: there are 11 channels01:13
blakeXi hope so, pidgin is really pissing me off01:13
LrdMtrodIs there an easy way to do a netboot installation of newest Ubuntu? Cause my CD-drive in my laptop just doesn't want to read correctly except in very rare moments.01:14
linxehMellowYellow: maybe you are on a channel that is already crappy (assuming you are complaining about bad speeds to your router)01:14
blakeXthey call me mellow yellow01:14
MellowYellowlinxeh, ah, wasn't sure what you were referring to.01:14
Jordan_U!install | LrdMtrod01:14
ubottuLrdMtrod: Ubuntu can be installed in a lot of ways. Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation for documentation. Problems during install? See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CommonProblemsInstall. Don't want to use a CD? Try http://tinyurl.com/3exghs - See also !automate01:14
blakeXim looking forward to empathy replacing pidgin :-)01:14
KattollikisdCan someone tell me how to put a transparent background in the nautilus pleases? :S01:14
MellowYellowblakeX, whats the difference?01:15
linxehblakeX: empathy looks quite nice01:15
w0ltCan anyone explain to me why it is when I ping an address, it resolves to  ??01:15
blakeXthe difference is pidgin has refused to make their product better for years01:15
linxehMellowYellow: pidgin is awful :/01:15
IndyGunFreakKattollikisd: maybe you can't,i thought you could.01:15
MellowYellowwell that sure is a difference, I figured it had more features or something. I gave up on it looking nice01:15
IndyGunFreaksomeone prolly woulda responded by now if you could.01:15
blakeXi honestly hope that when empathy replaces pidgin, pidgin will try and compete01:15
linxehthe pidgin guys do some really cool stuff with the protocol handling and libraries but their gui skills live a lot to be desired01:16
usserOsse, ok lets try 3gp then01:16
OsseSounds good usser =)01:16
MellowYellowgah, gtg01:16
blakeXlinxeh: i like the way pidgin looks, that's not the problem01:16
linxehAdium on OSX is a good IM client built on the pidgin libraries01:16
linxehblakeX: its not how it looks, its how it works. GUI design isnt about looks, it is about ergonomics and aesthetics just as much as anything else01:16
ozkelligirlok so what is the best graphic package then?01:16
blakeXim in pidgin trying to rub it into the developers faces, i have been warning them for some time now01:17
shey^5 Ubuntunians.01:17
blakeX#pidgin that is, haha01:17
linxehozkelligirl: photoshop01:17
linxehozkelligirl: and lightroom01:17

shey... aaand what LjL said.01:22
spiritssightechelon: Just in case you did not get my msg, I said I was having trouble viewing wireless networks that are in the area, I also asked if you could pm me as there is to much traffic here that I will most likly miss your msgs01:22
Kattollikisd<IndyGunFreak> yea... for example... I open the Home And I see theres folders i the background is transparent... that's what I want to do... you know how? :S01:23
IndyGunFreakstuff_happens: its not bad.. but not really that much "lighter" than gnome if you ask me01:23
usserOsse, sudo apt-get install python-wxtools01:23
LjLstuff_happens: sure, although there is a #xubuntu channel too (but i do not believe - although i know nothing about wireless cards - there's very many difference when configuring that)01:23
usserOsse, ?01:23
IndyGunFreakKattollikisd: i know, and that what i'm saying, i don't think its possible, i thought it was;01:23
wersshey and n3hima . i tried browsing this computer's contents by opening "ssh://" using the other computer but it nautilus (on the other computer) said that it can't be displayed because the host cant be found. any idea why?01:23

sheywers: ermm.. 1.2 is the PC you are on.01:24
jribKattollikisd, IndyGunFreak: there once existed patches but I don't know if they were ever included.  Best bet is probably to find the bug on gnome's tracker and see what happened01:24
stuff_happensI was using b43  but its suuuper slow and very weak signal. I tried using the actualy broadcom drivers using various tutorials on ubuntuforums and it works, it detects the networks but I need to restart networking to connect to unprotected ones otherwise whole comp freezes. Once I do I can connect and use internet as long as its an unprotected access point.01:24
sheywers: do you have physical access to the other PC?01:24
Osseusser - Okay, now?01:24
stuff_happensIf I try to connect to WPA type it freezes system and have to as usual force a power down01:25
wersshey, yep01:25
usserOsse, now chmod a+x converter.py01:25
sheystuff_happens: I am having troubles with the Broadcom drivers as well, and to be honest I havent had the time to tweak out the issue yet.01:25
usserOsse, and u should be able to double click on it and run01:25
sheywers: sudo ifconfig on that pc.01:25

stuff_happenswould it be possible for me to try the same thing but with no desktop just pure commandline and see if it still freezes anything. I am starting to think it's the network manager that is causing the freezes since onlt after I restart it can I safely connect to unprotected networks without it freezing01:28

sandersomebody know a program like this for linux??? http://www.eatcam.com/webcam-recorder-msn.htm02:13
vbman11does anyone know of a SMART board notebook like application02:13
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 risk02:14
PeloAndril, asus boards also work well with ubuntu, I recommend something will a full intel chipset, very little , if any , hassle02:14

ubottustickboy  but I'm not sure you can install from an iso on wine maybe if you mount it to /media/cdrom: To mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.02:40
Mr_Awesomeis there any way to recover a file from gedit if my computer was shut off unexpectedly?02:40
SpencericalA person with Ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, for he or she has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed.02:41
dr_willisstickboy,  if that game has any disk-based copy protection - it proberly wont run ..      if its 'cracked' you need to rebuild the iso file on the machine and mount it. and then isntall from the cd image.02:41

Ximealternative cd?03:50
mib_7g503oCan I setup /etc/network/interfaces to have multiple settings for any given interface? I'd like to set a static IP on a laptop, but I'd like it to fallback to dhcp if conditions aren't met (i.e. gateway doesn't exist)...03:50
phantomcircuit"Your audio capture settings are invalid. Please correct them in the Multimedia settings."03:50
Jordan_UMikeGeig: Doesn't matter really, if you are just doing it temporarily use /mnt03:50
amenadomib_7g503o-> its static or dhcp, not both03:51
Nutt718Ziroday: thanks, I tried extracting to desktop and running apt-get install command and it failes03:51
ZirodayXime: please address, can you please try the alternative installer03:51
bobertdosYamakiri: Oh wait, forget I said that. So, the command you'll need is usermod using the -G argument. Be careful though, you have to list every group you still want the user to be in. It will be removed from any groups you don't list that it is already a member of........03:51
mib_7g503oamenado: thanks03:51
MikeGeigdanhb: ok, it is mounted03:51
ZirodayNutt718: what are you trying to install?03:51
danbh_intrepidMikeGeig: if you really spent 8 hours doing this, just reinstall.  Its faster and easier03:51
MikeGeigdanhb: I have reinstalled 10 times atleadt03:51

Jordan_Ucorigo: So I assume that your hardware doesn't work out of the box?03:52
Yamakiribobertdos: Um, I don't know all of the usergroups03:52
danbh_intrepidMikeGeig: the install doesn't get it working for you?03:52
ZirodayXime: yes, but something in your computer may be incompatible with the graphical installer. Please try the alternate cd03:52
MikeGeigdanhb: nope, each time, same deal03:52
Ximeyou like pretty sure thats my ticket to installing ubuntu?03:52
danbh_intrepidMikeGeig: oh, that changes things.  erm,  thats a bug03:53
ZirodayXime: I could try and diagnose your issue farther, but with no error messages and sparse computer information its very difficult03:53
MikeGeigdanhb: I have tried manually setting the partitions, I have tried letting the CD do it03:53
ZirodayXime: no I am not03:53
MikeGeigdanhb: I have tried every option on the disk03:53
danbh_intrepidMikeGeig: is this newer hardware?03:53
ScheissDroge1Xime: does a live cd run ?03:53
Yamakiribobertdos: Anywhere I can see a list of all of these?  And could you give an example?03:53
dr_willisMikeGeig,  i tend to use gparted from a live cd and leave a portionof the hard drive 'unallocated' and let the installer use/partion that part of the drive as it wants.03:53
MikeGeigdanhb: newish03:53
MikeGeigdr_willis: tried it03:54
danbh_intrepidMikeGeig: did you check the cd for errors?03:54

ubottuXime, please see my private message03:55
ZirodayXime: I am going to need something better then that sorry03:55
danbh_intrepidMikeGeig: this isn't really a grub issue, this is a failed install.  Im sorry for leading you astray, I thought you had a successful install at some point03:55
Ximeerr well what is ata2?03:55
bobertdosYamakiri: Oh yeah. First, you can use: groups NameOfUser to see what groups the user is in. Then, an example of usermod would be like..........03:55
MikeGeigdanhb: it seems like a successful install03:55
MikeGeigdanhb: I have never received any install errors03:56

jStefandres, totem04:47
dr_willisSudoKing,  err.. the first user under ubuntu has 'sudo' rights, and  does all the root stuff. You normally cant login directly as root.. and im not sure how you would 'delete' the root account.04:47
ambrosemy dhcp send me ip addresses that dont let me connect to the internet04:47

dr_willisSudoKing,  you mean your 'first' users account now - no longer has 'sudo' access?04:48

Jordan_Umeoblast001: Are you sure you set everything to ALSA?06:29
klosi was wondering about how desktop effects and stuff06:29
FlynsarmyIs there like a 'run' or 'start' command you can use to execute programs from the terminal?06:29
meoblast001i feel like im operating a mac here06:29
klosdoes it work thru ltsp ?06:29
Jordan_Umeoblast001: You may need to log out06:29
jgedeonklos, no I don't think it does.  don't think you would want it too.06:29
arvind_khadriFlynsarmy, you just need to type the program name and it works06:29
joejoecircusboyFlynsarmy: try ALT+F2  (for a full shell, do applications -> Accessories -> Terminal)06:29
klosjgedeon, im thinking about building a myth tv box. and thought about running all my pc applications off this one aswell using ltsp06:30
tj83nke, the manufacture does not even offer a user manual online! tons of forums like "laptop wont boot......etc" doesnt look good... better just try some keys06:30
jgedeonklos, your basically sending all graphics over the network to a thinclient with minimal hardware \06:30
klosi could save enrgy and space etc, how do you think it would work, having one server serving my whole unit06:30
Flynsarmyarvind_khadri, I know that. It's to do with a c program i'm writing. execv() can't handle text files, only programs. which brings me back to my original question. need a run command that would 'execute' whatever youre trying to run06:30
nkeoh shit tj83 ... i have tried tht ...06:31
nkebut thanks so much!06:31
jgedeonklos, you could do that but you won't have the desktop effects.06:31
nkecan you paste some of those links?06:31
klosi prolly have one or two apple tvs as myth tv frontend and a thin client for my computing needs06:31
tj83nke i would try these in order esc, del, F2, ,F8, F10, F12 you have tried all of them?06:31

tj83nke just google the make and model.. you will hit them06:31
Jordan_UFlynsarmy: system06:32
tj83nke, also expect sound issues. saw some trouble there also with ubuntu06:32
joejoecircusboyFlynsarmy: use system()06:32
FlynsarmyJordan_U, joejoecircusboy we have to use execv06:32
klosis there anything i have to consider when buying a thin client ? i think the only thing they have to be able to is to boot thru the network, is this right ?06:32
Jordan_UFlynsarmy: Why?06:32
joejoecircusboyFlynsarmy: call /bin/bash then, with the script as a arg06:32
FlynsarmyJordan_U, it's a uni assignment06:32
nkethank tj8306:32
Jordan_UFlynsarmy: Ask your teacher :)06:33
jgedeonklos, pretty much.  there are a couple websites that you can find from google that will tell you what true thin clients work out of the box and what to avoid.06:33
tj83nke, does it have two memory modules in it? if you remove one it might throw you into setup option, you could then set your boot order and put the memory back in?06:33
Flynsarmyjoejoecircusboy, /bin/bash works. thanks :)06:33
klosok do you know any vendors who seel some nice thin clients, some less geek looking :)06:33
nketj83: sorry, not sure how to ook that up ...06:33
jgedeonklos, for my classrooms I use older school hardware and for the daycares I use true thinclients.06:33
joejoecircusboyFlynsarmy: Make sure you credit me in your assignment :P06:33
nketj83: do you mean remove some piece of the computer manually?06:34
meoblast001Audacity sux06:34
tj83nke, yes.. flip it over remove the memory cover and see if it has two modules06:34
Jordan_UFlynsarmy: And remember, this channel is logged and indexed by google ;)06:34
jgedeonklos, I don't think any of the thinclients look geek looking..  Heck you can mount them under the desk or table and no one sees them..06:34

joejoecircusboyicedtea: which driver?06:40
tj83nke, heh ok... been working on computers for a long time.. i am sure there is some key that will get you in.... but its tricks like that that sometimes just might do the job.. and yes most of the time you have to remove a screw... and the cover or screw hole should me labeled with an "M"06:40
dr_willisicedtea,  I imagine it depends on the exact card.  ive not had any issues when using the radeon drivers.06:40

tj83icedtea, all you should have to do is back up your old xorg.cong (sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.cong /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak) and then change "ati" to "fglrx" and restart06:47

jbarberoHi; I wonder if anyone can point me to a troubleshooting guide to get wireless working with pcmcia. I've been using Linux for about 6 years, so it doesn't matter if the guide is technical. The pcmcia card is detected (via dmesg) but the wireless interface doesn't show up. This card has worked before on a suse system (different laptop though) fine for years. I can provide make & model if that helps.06:48
anom01ywhy is it that when I run alsa force-reload, and then kmix, I get different mixer settings every time06:48
nw15062Theeb there is a good tutorial on how to fix the flash audio issue on ubuntu's forum do a google search for it.06:48
Jordan_Ujbarbero: What chipset?06:48
tj83icedtea, be prepared to revert back to the old file from terminal should something go wrong... from terminal do it backwards (sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak /etc/X11/xorg.conf).... i have only run 8.04, but i would check for updates first.. shouldnt have to apt anything06:49
jbarberoJordan_U: the card is a cisco aironet 340 series06:49
Theeb<nw15062> thanks, but i get the same problem when i run vbox and use the same audio engine, will that solve it also?06:49
Vladimir24alas i cannot pinpoint the problem on this computer, guess that's what i get for picking it up off the curb on trash night06:49
nw15062Theeb: try apt-get removing and installing pulse06:51
jbarberoJordan_U: or did I misunderstand your question?06:51
Jordan_UVladimir24: Yes, Xubuntu would be better06:51
tj83icedtea, apt-cache search fglrx returns this package amongst others "xorg-driver-fglrx"06:51

Theebnw15062,  im using alsa mixer as main audio, and i changed the vbox audio option to pules, and i have no problems06:52
Theebpulse *06:52
Jordan_Ujbarbero: Sort of, what does lscpci say ( I think it's prism but I'm not sure )06:53
Theebi have alsa and pulse in the option, which device should i use06:53
tj83nke... hey, your customer... but really memory modules are user upgradeable and does not void warranty.06:53
nw15062I use pulse06:53
Vladimir24alright, i'll give Xubuntu a shot, hopefully avoid installation problems06:53
amenadojbarbero-> also try  sudo lshw -C network and see if the driver is loaded okay06:53
nw15062it is becoming the main sound backend06:53
jbarberoIt seems to be so.06:55
Theebhow do you make ur main audio device?06:55
Theebi only see master in the volume control, no mic or headphone06:55
meoblast001i give up on sound06:55
meoblast001i guess its one of those things you have to accept06:55
jbarberoamenado: lshw -C network prints info about the Cisco card06:55
nketj83: it is not my customer, it is a friend :) and i'm doing it for free of course because i enjoy recovering laptops with ubuntu live :) usually it works but this case has proven a bit frustrating..06:56

amenadojbarbero-> same command, look at the results carefully06:57

nketj83: i will, as soon as i see the owner :)06:58
tj83nke.. good luck.06:58

EvillNevermind, I'll give it a try.07:26
ShdwShinobiHas anyone installed a Hauppauge 1950 tv tuner?07:26
master_when the setting is going to boot up you should hit esc, then look for the boot sequence you may like07:27
master_hit edit and then at the very end of the line add noapic acpi=off07:27

EvillShdwShinobi: Well, it was prior to the 8.04 update. :)07:35
EvillI ran xfix from recovery and that didn't change anything.07:35
ShdwShinobiOk, I've had problems with that WSOD when messing with the xorg.conf before.07:35

sheyabby87: how do we view any possible gnome errors?07:59
josephWould you have trouble with Ubuntu if u used the Standard personal computer (x86 architecture, PentiumTM, CeleronTM, AthlonTM, SempronTM) and you had a 64AMD and not using the 64-bit amd version07:59
EvillAlthough gnome doesn't seem to think it has any problems.08:00
abby87shey: do 1 thing login and type startx08:00
Rajarajanhi, i want to launch the login screen in humming bird. I have set the display variable , what is the command to bring login screen ?08:00
sheyabby87: Evill =)08:00
Flanneljoseph: What?  No.  I don't think so.  You're saying you have 64bit hardware, but you're using 32bit OS?08:00
Marcelcelheybwer kann deutsch bitte mal privat melden brauche hilfe bitte08:00
EvillCheers, shey.08:00
FlannelMarcelcel: /join #ubuntu-de bitte08:00
abby87shey: you can check the logs in /var/log/08:01
sheyEvill: do that, if xorg crashes you will see an error08:01
Evillabby87: gnome is already running, and I have a console from that.08:01
josephFlannel: I have a 64-bit AMD pc and im not using the version of Ubuntu made for a 64-bit08:01
Flanneljoseph: That's fine.  Those processors run just fine with 32bit08:01
sheyEvill: you are still in the console I put you in?08:01
dr_willisjoseph,  should be no problems at all.. Most people dont use 64bit OS on their 64bit hardware.08:01
abby87Evill: so you want to get to normal X screen?08:01
sheyall he sees in a white screen and a moveable cursor08:02
EvillWell.. gnome boots up, shows the login screen.08:02
EvillThat works fine.08:02
ujosI have troubles with ntfs partitions. After some manipulation with ntfs partition Windows's chkdsk finds errors. I use ntfs-3g 1.271208:02
EvillOnce I log in, it goes white with moveable cursor.08:02
EvillThe cursor does change to eyebeam over certain places. So gnome probably thinks it is fine.08:02
abby87Evill: ur X is messed up i guess08:02
ujosis there other NTFS driver implementation rather than ntfs-3g?08:02
josephGuys, im having a huge problem with my PC when im not in failsafe gnome i cant right-click, or click on alot of things08:03

peppe__dr_willis if i get mount -t fatx /dev/hda50 /mnt/E ...the filesystem fatx is wrong for ubuntu11:14
dr_willismorningwalker,  you could just turn off the firewall.. or open the port.11:14
damomorningwalker>: u have to go into your modem/router and change porta11:14
jribmorningwalker: the firewall has no rules defined by default, so port 22 is not blocked by default11:14
dr_willispeppe__,  that may be fatx is only avail on xbox-linux.11:14
morningwalkerhow to open port then??11:14
damowhat programs can i use on ubuntu to make a webpage?11:14
peppe__I must install an O.S. xbox-linux?? xebian??11:14
jribmorningwalker: for your router, see http://portforward.com/11:14
Starnestommymorningwalker: run something that listens on that port, e.g. sshd11:15
dr_willisdamo,  fire up the package manager and search for html editor. theres several11:15
NWMUbuntu does not detect my harddrive, "sudo fdisk -l" shows nothing, how can I install?11:15

damono i want to do it the easy wau11:17
erUSULNWM: which controller is it attached to? can you see it on boot messages (dmesg) ?11:17
jribghaleb: you should check if he's defined any iptables rules first since ubuntu has none by default.  It's most likely a different issue11:17
dr_willisdamo,  that wasent what you asked however. :)11:17
ghalebjrib, yeah .. I thought I saw he wants to open a port11:17
NWMerUSUL, how would I find those things out?11:18
ghalebmorningwalker, sudo iptables -L11:18
damocan u help still>?11:18
dr_willisdamo,  a lot will depend totally on what you are doing exactly, how big a project.. kind of page.. ect...11:18
damoits small11:18
damojust a normal webpage11:18
morningwalkerthat will be the output??11:18
dr_willisdamo,  i rarely do more then the most basic of html tasks.   theres dozens if not hundereds of simple html editors out. or you can use abiword/openoffice to do it.11:18
GargantuaWhen I boot into my ubuntu install I get a sh commandline.11:19

GargantuaAny idea why I'm getting this? any help is appericated.11:20
NWMerUSUL, I am using the CTRL-ALT-F2 terminal, so I cant paste, but lscpi mentions "SATA IDE Controllers"11:21
dusty_Does anyone know a good website to download backgrounds/wallpapers from ?11:21
Gargantuastartx doesn't work, the /bin dir has only like 10 files.11:21
bob1I have an old Win98 Frankenstein that I want to run Ubuntu on. I have a live CD and I everything seems to progress OK in "Safe mode"11:21
sheyNWM: sudo apt-get install pastebinit11:21
Gargantuadusty_, http://orz.4chan.org/wg/11:21
bob1Sorry then the CRT goes black11:21
Pirate_HunterGargantua: i doubt it is a ssh commandline more like something went wrong and you need to crrect it manually, you could always try startx and see if anything happens11:21
erUSULNWM: use pastebinit like shey said11:21

dr_willisbob1,  for some older machines. it may be better to use the alternative-installer cd.11:22
NWMerUSUL, it couldnt find the package11:22
GargantuaPirate_Hunter, I mean sh commandline.11:22
NWMerUSUL, running off of the LiveCD atm11:22
dusty_Thank you guys.11:22
Gargantuait gives a message then the commandline is something like "(initsomething) stdin".11:22
erUSULNWM: :| which kind of ide controler? intel; sis; via etc...11:22
bob1dr_willis, I'm not familiar. What is and where do I get it?11:23
erUSULGargantua: you are on the initrd very basic shell11:23
NWMerUSUL, intel11:23
erUSULNWM: did you look into dmesg output? intel controllers are well supported11:23
GargantuaerUSUL, yes I am.11:24
GargantuaI wonder why.11:24
Pirate_HunterGargantua: if your system starts up looking like dos/bash than it might mean many things x crashed and a simple startx command will work, you edited a file you shouldnt have and need to give it correct permission, however you havent explained much so its hard to know11:24
GargantuaIT was working beautifully a day ago.11:24
GargantuaPirate_Hunter, it's not bash.11:24
Gargantuait's a initd primitive shell.11:24
NWMerUSUL, running in command-line atm, the output is longer than the screen, nothing that I can see says anything relevant though11:24
GargantuaPirate_Hunter, [03:21:08] <Gargantua> startx doesn't work, the /bin dir has only like 10 files.11:25
erUSULNWM: thats what pagers were programmed for use "dmesg | less" and use spc bar to move11:25
GargantuaSo any ideae why tis might happen erUSUL?11:25
bob1dr_willis, I am booting up as we chat, It has stalled at a screen that talks about Ubuntu haveing no warenties11:26
vadimhi everyone. How can i make mp3 from audio cd?11:26
zmyrgelhas anyone succesfully compiled the latest awesome on ubuntu?11:27
erUSULGargantua: well may happen when linux does not find the hard disk (problem with the controller ...) or the partitions changed under linux feet or something like that ...11:27
sheyvadim: audio cd extractor11:27
NWMerUSUL, there are a few mentions of ata and scsi, what should I be looking for?11:27
erUSULGargantua: did you changed anything that can explain why it stoped working?11:27
GargantuaNot at all.11:28
GargantuaI cannot think of any reason.11:28
_empa__how do i set up dual screen in ubuntu with a intel 82855?11:28

morningwalkerhow to update linux kernel??11:28
shey_empa__: google ubuntu multiple display11:29
jrib!alternate | bob111:29
ubottubob1: The Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD.  Look for the alternate checkbox on the Ubuntu download page - See also !minimal - Torrent at http://releases.ubuntu.com/8.04.1/ubuntu-8.04.1-alternate-i386.iso.torrent11:29
erUSULNWM: if the controller is intel somehing like ata_piix or ahci (lines beggining with)11:29
erUSULGargantua: changed something in the bios? repartitioning?11:29
Pirate_Hunterhow do i remove ip and key from save in ssh config?11:29
_empa__shey: just a lot of reading, been reading for some couple of hours already.  but this is not a function of ubuntu i suppose?11:29
morningwalker!linux kernal update11:29
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)11:29
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about linuxkernel11:30
shey_empa__: if you go into the screens options in systems you can do it there.11:30
GargantuaThis is unlikely, BUT.11:30
shey_empa__: IF your hardware is setup properly.11:30
FloodBot2Gargantua: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.11:30
bob1dr_willis, I will look for it. Thanks!11:30
GargantuaI did install an ext3 driver on my Windows boot.11:30
morningwalkerhow to convert FAT32 to NTFS??11:31
jribmorningwalker: update-manager will tell you there is a new kernel package and you can update it there (like every other package in ubuntu)11:31
bob1jrib, just stuck on this page, no input from keyboard or mouse. I may d/l the other CD and give it a go.11:31
Ace_NoOnelastfmsubmitd question: How can I change the last.fm group after installing? I kinda messed that up during the initial setup11:31
jribbob1: if you did the "verify the integrity of the cd" check at the first boot screen from the dvd and it passed then the alt cd is the next thing to try11:32
xbxbis it possible to create a new block device that is a subset of another block device? For example, if I got /dev/sda1 and I want the bytes xxxx to yyyy of /dev/sda1 to form a new block device.11:32
jribbob1: s/dvd/cd probably11:32
bob1jrib, OK thanks!!!!!!11:32

Pirate_Hunterhow do i remove ip and key from save through ssh?11:33
NWMerUSUL, there doesnt seem to be any mention of my hdd, it does mention my cdrom though11:33
NWMerUSUL, the cdrom is connected to the older drive-connection (I forgot name, the one with the wide cables)11:33
jribSlart: wfm in ephy11:33

SlarterUSUL, jrib: thanks11:35
morningwalkerguys, i cant add this rules to iptables >> http://www.itech7.com/Security/Secure-your-Linux-Box-using-IPTables-Firewall11:36
erUSULNWM: ParalelATA vs SerialATA :). well i would recommend to check the bios and puth the sata controller in ahci mode if you can11:36
NWMok, ill try that11:36
jribmorningwalker: you seem to just be ignoring what people tell you for some reason.  What did 'sudo iptables -L' return for you?  use pastebin11:36
xbxbhow can I format a USB stick from within Linux? My file browser doesn't show that functionality11:37
Slartxbxb: you can use gparted to format it11:37
jribxbxb: use gparted11:37
morningwalkerjrib:pastebin site please??11:37
GargantuaSo do you suggest anything to start upon erUSUL?11:37
jribmorningwalker: paste.ubuntu.com11:37
morningwalkerjrib : http://paste.ubuntu.com/44152/11:39
NWMerUSUL, its an option has an option for AHCI, its currently set to disabled, Is their any risk to the data on that drive by changing the setting?11:39
jribmorningwalker: ok.  So are you still trying to setup ssh?11:39
erUSULGargantua: dunno really... if it worked and saddenly stoped to work ... is a mistery.. maybe you can boot into a livecd and check the health of your disk mount the ubuntu partition and check if everything is ok etc. gather some more info about the problem11:39
morningwalkernot for my pc11:39
morningwalkerjrib:one of my friends computer11:40
erUSULNWM: no; just changes the mode the sata controller is used by the drivers11:40
jrib!ssh > morningwalker11:40
ubottumorningwalker, please see my private message11:40
jribmorningwalker: are you on your friend's computer now?11:40
morningwalkerjrib: no. my own11:40
GargantuaerUSUL, hmmm, Checking it out from Windows, it apears very normal.11:41
morningwalkeri can connect to my computer from his, but not from mine to his11:41
Pirate_HunterGargantua: doesnt it give you any sort of explanation of what might be the problem?11:41
jribmorningwalker: then tell him to follow the wiki page I just gave you and tell him to come here if he has any trouble (or ask you).  You just need to install the openssh-server package and setup your router (see portforward.com and the wiki)11:41
cycloudyang and does anyone know where i can get the current murrine engine?11:42
cycloudyang i can not get it through svn in a terminal due to my ISP.11:42
