Scunizimilostrife: there's lots of new things that you'll be learning with linux and ubuntu.. grub is one of the necessary evils you get use to and can learn to like00:00
danbh_intrepiddiegodiaz: which command?00:00
Razerusing a liveCD what do I do to increase the size of my linux partition?00:00
puffHm, my thinkpad (running ubuntu) isn't getting a dhcp response from the router/access point.00:01
danbh_intrepid!GParted > Razer one option00:01
ubottuRazer, please see my private message00:01
jribjescis: poke me if you can't find them, and I'll search too.  I know I've seen them there though00:01
keepsakeIsn't the LiveCD size limited to your RAM size?00:01
koshariRazer make sure you back up before using any partition utilities00:01
Razerdanbh_intrepid: how do I resize my ntfs partition though?00:02
diegodiazdanbh_intrepid: the sudo update-mime-database command from that post..00:02
Xialpatrik: i do have to admit, though, I'm also curious as to why the current howto for evdo cards didn't help.00:02
puffAlso, not that I can do anything about it right now, but anybody know about kernel versions?  Ever since I upgraded to hardy, suspend-to-ram has stopped working.  Suspend-to-disk (aka hibernate) sorta works, but every second or third time I have to force a reboot.00:02
milostrifeScunizi, have problems with identifying partitions ? > sudo fdisk-l would that work or not? yeah my friend that introduced me to it said the same00:02
=== meoblast is now known as meoblast001
Scunizimilostrife: the grub link I think specifically shows you how to recover after installing window as a secondary OS00:02
danbh_intrepiddiegodiaz: what arguments is it looking for?00:02
Scunizimilostrife: sudo fdisk -l (there's a space there between k & -l) will identify partitions..00:02
milostrifeScunizi,  yeah it's a how to but my problem is still gettin windows to install through bios as i have legit copied cd of my windows disk but it keeps crashing on autoload in ubuntu?00:03
Scunizimilostrife: it only identifies them with that command. When installing windows on the secondary drive, if you have a choice for the filesystem choose NTFS not Fat3200:04
diegodiazdanbh_intrepid: looks like [-hvV] MIME-DIR00:04
Scunizimilostrife: you can't load ubuntu then from there put the disk in and install windows.. you have to put the disk in and reboot.00:04
danbh_intrepiddiegodiaz: can you pastebin the results of your commands?00:04
RazerI can't resize my ntfs partition with gparted00:04
danbh_intrepidRazer: is this hardy?00:05
diegodiazsure.. right here, or private to you?00:05
danbh_intrepid!paste > diegodiaz00:05
ubottudiegodiaz, please see my private message00:05
Razerdanbh_intrepid: yes00:05
koshariRazer you need to install a package for ntfs resize to appear in gparted00:05
milostrifeScunizi,  ok well i tried that but it wouldn't let me format on ntfs it just came up with a message saying if you with to install windows on this dirve please select a partition when it's just saying raw unpartitioned space00:05
Razerkoshari: I'm running off a liveCD00:05
koshariRazer otherwise it will be greyed out, i cant remember the package name00:06
Scunizimilostrife: ok.. then use partition editor to create a partition and see if it will format it using ntfs00:06
patrikagain, My e220 connects and receives an IP, but can't seem to connect to the DNS. Trying for some reason to connect to suse.de. Any ideas?00:06
danbh_intrepidRazer: you are right, gparted doesnt support it00:06
koshariRazer you can still install packaged in a live session if your connected00:06
diegodiazdanbh_intrepid: i was also thinking I might be able to restore it from the HH live disk..00:07
keepsakeWhy not like00:07
keepsakechoose to install00:07
diegodiazI posted it by the way.00:07
keepsakeuse the installation to partition the drive00:07
keepsakeand then exit the installation?00:07
danbh_intrepiddiegodiaz: if you have a separate /home, that usually the easiest fix00:07
danbh_intrepiddiegodiaz: link?00:07
koshariRazer ntfsprogs is the package, however i generally use the gparted live cd for such actions00:07
milostrifeScunizi,  the gpartitioner you give install line for? if it is then it only comes up with ecxt2,3 fat16,32 linux-swap, reiserfs and unformatted00:08
koshariRazer remember to BACKUP....00:08
Razerkoshari: I am running ther gparted liveCd00:08
keepsakekoshari: isn't it possible to just use the Setup to format the disk and then exit setup before it's completed?00:08
Scunizimilostrife: didn't realize there was an unformatted option.. use that one.00:08
keepsakekoshari: i.e. before it starts installing Ubuntu files00:08
diegodiazdanbh_intrepid: oops.. first timer here.. http://paste.ubuntu.com/47019/00:08
kosharikeepsake possable bu ti havnt done it, i still think you cannot resize a ntfs partition without ntfsprogs00:09
danbh_intrepiddiegodiaz: thats the wrong command00:09
milostrifeScunizi,  ok what do i create as primary or extended partions logical isn't an option?00:09
keepsakekoshari: I'm pretty sure the 8.04 setup supports NTFS drives =S I might be wrong though00:09
Scunizimilostrife: primary00:09
Scunizimilostrife: how large is the drive?00:09
keepsakekoshari: but that's how I recovered one of my laptop's drives that I accidentally deleted using aefdisk in Windows00:09
danbh_intrepiddiegodiaz: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=2952926&postcount=4 are you looking at this page?00:09
kosharikeepsake it does support creating ntfs partitions but not resizing00:10
milostrifeScunizi,  only 40gig operation is pending now00:10
Razerkoshari: It says I already have ntfsprogs00:10
mercutio22Hello, my session just suddenly restarted, how can I diagnose whats wrong looking into log files? Can someone help me with the basics?00:10
=== xmagixx is now known as xmagixx^BNC
koshariRazer there must be another reason it wont let you resize, its not mounted is it?00:10
Razerkoshari: I don't know00:10
danbh_intrepiddiegodiaz: see how the command you ran is not the command suggested, which is: sudo update-mime-database /usr/share/mime00:10
keepsakeRazer: Try this bootcd: http://sysresccd.org/Main_Page00:10
Scunizimilostrife: pretty small but large enough.. if it was larger I'd suggest making as small a portion of a partition that windows will need and use the remaining portion for extra Ubuntu storage.00:10
keepsakeRazer: It's supposed to have qtparted which does support NTFS00:11
koshariyou cannot edit partitions while thay are mounted00:11
gboltewell I seem to have got one of the problems sorted00:11
gbolteI now have audio00:11
milostrifeScunizi,  yeah was thinking that but just brought an external 500gib for ubuntu storage00:11
diegodiazdanbh_intrepid: Yeah, you're absolutely right..00:11
gboltebut I do not have spdif audio00:11
the_darkside_986Is it possible to set a page quota per day in Ubuntu Hardy for a USB printer? I tried editing the cups config file and restarting cups but it didn't work--I was still able to exceed the quota without a complaint from cupsd...00:11
danbh_intrepiddiegodiaz: ok, good, im glad you see.  Give it another try, let me know if it works00:11
gbolteso if anyone has any ideas to make my spdif out work please let me know00:11
Scunizimilostrife: sounds like me.. I have a 500 external and 3 internals.. 80 gig/120 gig/ 250gig00:12
milostrifeScunizi,  i was hopeing to get a terrabiyte but wasn't in the sale and didn't really have the spare cash for it as it was £135 :(00:13
gbolteit looks like its making a connection when I check and uncheck the iec958 box in gnome volume thingy the receiver looks like it notices00:13
gboltebut again still no audio00:13
milostrifeScunizi,  it's found it now file systems unknown partition name is sdb100:13
Scunizimilostrife: ouch.. that apx. $250.. they're on sale out here for around $150 or apx 7000:13
keepsakeRazer: btw, if you do use that LiveCD, people have suggested that you defrag NTFS first00:13
gboltewhich is a problem since I would like to watch movies in surround sound on this box00:14
keepsakeRazer: and to back up the NTFS partition in case things go wrong (though it shouldn't)00:14
diegodiazdanbh_intrepid:  thanks, wish me luck..00:14
Scunizimilostrife: yee ha. (that's an American term)  now you can install windows00:14

danbh_intrepiddiegodiaz: good luck!  and let me know!00:14
Scunizimilostrife: is that inside of partition editor?00:15
milostrifeScunizi,  yeah just after the sdb1 before filesystem00:15
Scunizimilostrife: probably just means it's not formatted.00:16
Xialsimple question: I'd like to replace grub with a graphical boot manager. I let other users use this computer, and it's a bit annoying to remind them to choose Windows so they can play their silly poker game. Are there any recommended ones?00:16

Cpudan80darren_: It really depends, what do you intend to do on Ubuntu00:18
darren_Also one last thing when i try autodetect it says invalid argument but when i select an other option like alsa sound works fine is this normal00:18
Cpudan80darren_: in general no av is needed, but firewall you might want00:18

dashnuStill asks me for a pass at login though01:10
dr_willisdashnu,   I just dont worry about the firewall much. :)01:10
chubs_gbolte, dpkg --force-downgrade -i01:11
chubs_dpkg --force-downgrade -i oldpackage.deb01:11
gboltechubs_, but I have to have the actual deb files for that to work though right?01:11
HawkInCadarren is your wireless WEP or WPA?01:12
dr_willisdashnu,  that line looks wrong. with the ALL=NOPASSWD bit..    i thought that was saying all commands , didentneed a password.. but as i said. I alwyas have to reread the sudoers man pages and guides.  when i mess with it01:12
chubs_gbolte, right, but they shouldn't be tough to find01:12
dashnudr_willis: its a nice front end for iptables... easy enough for the average joe01:12
gboltewonder if there is any chance the old ones are still in the repos01:12
dashnudr_willis: i read over the man again and see what I come up with01:12
darren__HawkInCa, i know my router is wep with the code the wifi adapter i have no idear01:12
HawkInCadarren i had the same problem but its because your wireless is not compatible with WPA.01:13
darren__HawkInCa, the code is right it just wont connect01:13
harryjrmacd: $ http://pastie.org/272413 -- i have work and home boxes. work is behind firewall, thus i am reverse connecting to home, on port 22222. ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub on home is in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys ..01:13
HawkInCadarren i had same issue01:13
dr_willisdashnu,  im thinking you are missing some  (   ) also in there.01:14
macdharryjr, yes its pasted into authorized_keys wrong, the whitespace error tells all01:14
macdverify there is none leading or trailing01:15
dashnudr_willis: i think your right... I'll let you know what I come up with01:15
dr_willisdashnu,  i found a web site that had man pages. the  man page in  the browser was a bit easier to read. due to the code/examples and stuff being differnt fonts.01:15
HawkInCahas anyone gotten a wpa wireless to work with Hardy?01:15
darren__HawkInCa, ok if i use the driver from aircrack it connects but does not show signel strength, and if i use the ndiswrapper it shows signel strength but does not connect so i think its compatible01:15
Flanneldr_willis, dashnu: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/01:16
HawkInCadarren yeah i had the exact same issue.  i decided to get new wireless card that is compatible with ubuntu hardy01:16

chetnickguys, my system crashed yesterday, it looks like some files got corupted. i am getting this errors when i log in GUI.  "The panel could not register with the bonobo-activation server (error code: 3) and will exit." and "Nautilus can't be used now, due to an unexpected error."

JasonWoofI remember being much happier on my old mac when I turned CONFIG_PREEMPT on01:53
chetnickAzazel-A2, E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.01:53
tonyyarussopan03242: ifdown is a shortcut that will only work if the interface has an entry in /etc/network/interfaces.  For unconfigured interfaces you can still use 'sudo ifconfig ath0 down'.01:53

davidguestrno idea what the heck up at least windows firewal is easy 2 change01:54
cilkayJasonWoof: Not mine. I run 512M virtual machines but you have to stay on top of what you're running on them. The problem looks like you're hitting swap and that disk thrashing isn't the problem. It's the symptom.01:54
JasonWoofcilkay: is thrashing supposed to kill all multitasking?01:54
JasonWoofI think I aught to be able to use my computer anyway01:55
* ^Phantom^ looks at the screen with odd face01:55
dumbdumHi, Google earth doesn;t appear in my package manager! What is the command to install it please?01:55
JasonWoofat least a little, I just want a few cycles to start up an xterm and run killall or something01:55
Azazel-A2chetnick, what happened?01:55
JackCSGyou can download the Tar files off of their website01:55
^Phantom^"W: Unable to locate package xserver-org"01:55
spx2what is portmap used for ? can I kill it without major consequences ?01:55
cilkayJasonWoof: If you've run out of real memory, it sure will kill responsiveness. It's not killing multitasking per se. I'll bet if you could get top going on that, you'd see the load average would be very high and many processes waiting for CPU attention.01:55
cilkayJasonWoof: That makes for a very unpleasant and unresponsive system. Add more RAM.01:56
franki^something went horribly wrong with my graphical display(log in sound but blank screen) now running from a live cd, can i 'repair' somehow, or should i completely reinstall?01:56

^Phantom^i want the higher resolution first01:56
keepsakespx2: ubuntu package list says: Portmap is a server that converts RPC (Remote Procedure Call) program numbers into DARPA protocol port numbers. It must be running in order to make RPC calls.01:56
JasonWoofcilkay: nope, when I've gotten top open, I see one process hogging memory, and the CPU not doing much01:56
cilkayJasonWoof: What is that process?01:56
Cpudan80dumbdum: the install command is sh <file you downloaded>01:56
aroonii have ubuntu hardy + sound blaset live value card.  i can only hear audio out of my front speakers (and not the rear ones).  on my card there is separate output for front/audio speakers.... everything is turned up in alsa, and i have tried restarting... ideas?01:56
cilkayJasonWoof: and what is the load average?01:56
JasonWoofcilkay: it varies, since I tend not to run such programs again01:56
JasonWoofcilkay: last time it was the thunar-file-manager thing from xfce01:56
tonyyarussospx2: Required for NFS or NIS, among other things.  For normal desktop use though it's not even installed by default, so you could in those cases.01:57
dumbdumBut it downloads as a "bin" and I dont know what to do with it :(01:57
JackCSGdumbdum, go into properties01:57
JasonWoofcilkay: I had a 21600x21600 pixel png in my home folder and it was trying to make an icon from it. apparently by decompressing the entire thing into memory01:57
dumbdumproperties for what?01:57
JasonWoof(which would take about 1.3GB for 3 bytes/pixel)01:57
cilkayJasonWoof: NO WONDER! :)01:57
JackCSGdumbdum, of the bin file01:57
JasonWoofcilkay: so yes, my software screwed up. but I don't think one buggy program running as my normal user should be able to effectively crash my computer by trying to allocate too much ram01:58
Reformer81Am I able to successfully burn the Ubuntu CD image to a DVD disc?01:58
cilkayJasonWoof: You want a refund or something?01:58
keepsakeJasonWoof: why in the world do you have a png that big?01:58
cilkayWhat are you whining to me about? :)01:59
JackCSGdumbdum, then go to permissions, and check 'allow excecuting file as a program'01:59
JasonWoofI think linux is capable of multitasking enough to give a few cycles to my WM and xterm so I can fix it without powercycling01:59

Reformer81Azazel-A2: Uhm... I mean, if I burn the CD image to a blank DVD disc, can I still boot it normally?02:00
cilkayJasonWoof: My son used a Celeron 366 with 196M of RAM for 3 years. It was slow but usable.02:00
cilkayBut he never attempted to open a 21k x 21k PNG.02:00
^Phantom^k it won't let me install the guest additions thing02:00

ubottuIf you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)02:02

MadpilotIndyGunFreak, clever bots exist for flood control now02:44
MertherI don't  recall seeing that.  Where in the installer is that?02:44
danbh_intrepid1FloodBots got all confused02:45
IndyGunFreakMerther: why don't you just do a normal install?... to your internal drive.02:45
IndyGunFreakMadpilot: well they fell asleep at the wheel on that guy...lol02:45
kapacehello, i have a printer that prints only test pages and stuff from smb02:45
MadpilotIndyGunFreak, most floods don't go so long, true...02:45
MertherI've got it like that for my computer but my friend wants to test with an external drive without modifying his internal drive.  That, and he hasn't backed up the internal.02:45
IndyGunFreakMadpilot: lol, i know, just kiddin..02:45
kapacethe printer takes normal text prints, but quickly stops and says: Flushing Buffer02:45
gandalfcomesorry about that, that was not planned02:45

dumbdumHi, i downloaded Google earth 4.3 from medibuntu but cant install (error "dependencies not satisfied")02:46
IndyGunFreakdumbdum: how did you download it from googleearth02:46
gandalfcomeJ-n: Graphics Adapter: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 95002:46
danbh_intrepid1the floodbots unsquelched gandalfcome instead of squelching him  : P02:46
keepsakeit's better02:46
keepsakedumbdum: do you know what the missing dependencies are?02:47
MertherHe's got it, though he would rather be able to bring the hard drive to another computer with a usb bootable bios because he's got more then one computer.02:47
dumbdumVia web with Firefox at http://packages.medibuntu.org/hardy/index.html02:47
IndyGunFreakapt-get should ahve resolved all dependencies for google earth.. i've never had a prob w/ that.. and actually, i just installed Google Earth like 10min ago.02:47
kitchedumbdum: why don't you add the medibuntu.org repos to your apt?02:48
IndyGunFreakdumbdum: well duh.. you're downloading individual packages.. add the medibuntu repository, following the instructions, then run sudo apt-get install googleearth and watch in wonder02:48
IndyGunFreakwhy you'd download packages when there's a repository is a mystery wrapped in a riddle02:48
dumbdumHave you noticed my handle? Its ok for you experts!02:48
J-ngandalfcome it will not be easy, but it can be done, i think http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=221174 should help02:49
keepsakedumbdum: are you running 8.04/hardy?02:49
IndyGunFreakdumbdum: has nothing to do with dumb/experience, click repository how to, and follow the instructions02:49
IndyGunFreakit has to do w/ following instructions.02:49
keepsakedumbdum: use "sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list"02:50

keepsakedumbdum: try it again02:55
danbh_intrepid1Razer: sudo iptables -L      if nothing is listed, then its your router.  If you have a router, then its probably your router02:55

tarrantHey quick question. I'm in the market to buy a new graphics card for my ubuntu computer. I haven't really followed the area for a very long time but how do nvidia and radeon compare as far as driver support currently?02:58
keepsaketarrant: afaik I think nvidia is better on ubuntu02:58
tarrantthanks that is what I figured.02:59
Cpudan80NVidia is better by many miles02:59
keepsaketarrant: I'm running radeon and it's... poopoo compared to Windows02:59
Cpudan80Take your ATi card and throw it out the window02:59
keepsakebut i have no other card =(02:59
Cpudan80Radeon will work on Ubuntu02:59
J-ngandalfcome i'm gonna guess it's possible02:59
Cpudan80just dont expect it to do anything fancy02:59
keepsakeCpudan80: It does work, but it's just really slow02:59
keepsakeCpudan80: yeah02:59
kapaceCpudan80, i thought ATI was better in open source karma?02:59
Cpudan80kapace: Hell no03:00
tberchhello all, I was recently compromised, and the attacker was in promiscuous mode for quite a while (probably), and I just need a good ubuntu auditing tool, Im looking for a resource that knows anything about host based auditing03:00
J-ngandalfcome check out the xorg.conf file see if it's in there03:00
Cpudan80kapace: ATi is as bad as it gets03:00
keepsakeCpudan80: I'm running fglrx and it's meh to say the most03:00
danbh_intrepid1cheeky: can you paste your iptables?03:00
tarrantthanks all, Nvidia it is.03:00
kapacewhats this i heard that AMD releasing free open driver or specs?03:00
gandalfcomeJ-n: Thanks. ubuntu is really a fantastic operating system but it always had difficulties with dual screen. they should really address this03:00
cheekyits the standard.. nothing on it03:00
Cpudan80kapace: They've been saying that for 100 years03:00
danbh_intrepid1Razer: its empty, you need to configure your router03:00
tarrantamd has released lots of specs for their card03:00
kapacei see03:00
Cpudan80kapace: I'll believe it when I see it03:00
vbman11does anyone know of a good dvd making application03:00
keepsakeCpudan80: you're such a hater =P03:00
Cpudan80kapace: they released some detailed specs -- thats about it03:01
Razerdanbh_intrepid1, but it wasn't a problem with my last ubuntu install03:01
cheekydanbh_intrepid1: could i pase it in a prvt message or here is fine?03:01
kitchekapace Cpudan80 : radeonhd03:01
tarrantvbman11: k3b03:01
J-ngandalfcome if you had an nvidia card it's very simple03:01
kitchekapace Cpudan80 it's part of X.org03:01

Razerdanbh_intrepid1, which was this morning03:01
keepsakekitche: Radeonhd?03:01
vbman11tarrant: in repo?03:01
J-ngandalfcome i agree though 100% thats an area i'd like to see improved as well03:01
tberchI got dual screen to work, but I had to manually set it every time,03:01
danbh_intrepid1cheeky: either paste.ubuntu.com or a pm03:01
teddy__hey guys. I have a problem probably related to X11. In any sdl game, such as sauerbraten or urban terror, if I use the scroll wheel it makes the mouse go whacky. This doesn't happen when I hold a key while scrolling and it is fixed by pressing keys on the keyboard03:01
tarrantvbman11: yea its technically a kde program though.03:01
kitchekeepsake: it's what the driver is called it works with the Radeon HD cards03:01
vbman11tarrant: ok then, thanks!03:02
IndyGunFreakgandalfcome: i guess thats a matter of opinion... i setup dual screens in about 2min.03:02
keepsakekitche: Really? Can you link me? (I have an HD2400Pro =\)03:02
gandalfcomeIndyGunFreak: Laptop or desktop?03:02
IndyGunFreakgandalfcome: desktop03:02

Wickedhello all. im wondering if there is a way i can get all the pictures and videos off my razr cellphone03:02
teddy__i guess im running kubuntu so i should be in #kubuntu but i remember this happening on regular old ubuntu as well03:02
danbh_intrepid1Razer: then I don''t know, sorry03:02
vbman11tarrant: will it make dvd menus?03:03
keepsakekitche: I'm afraid I don't understand, sorry =\03:03
gandalfcomeIndyGunFreak: I guess that works. But laptops I always had problems. On my macbook I just plugin the secondary monitor and it detects it. I think for ubuntu to succeed it needs to have these little things to work.03:03

jribHow can I disable the xinerama extension completely (without recompiling)?  xdpyinfo lists XINERAMA despite having << Option "Xinerama" "0" >> in my ServerFlags in xorg.conf.03:06

vbman11Realcoolguy: got it to work?03:08
vbman11dang it03:08
Razerdanbh_intrepid1, how would I configure my router?03:08
Realcoolguyvbman11: not quite the way i wanted it too... eventually i had to settle on not having menus or something03:08
crdlbjrib: the Xinerama protocol (not the largely obsolete X server infrastructure) is used by all implementations of multiscreen (XRandR 1.2 and nvidia's twinview) to tell applications the layout of the physical monitors03:08
vbman11Realcoolguy: i can't even get it to read my video file03:09
danbh_intrepid1Razer: mmmm, run ifconfig, and enter the ip address of your router into firefox.   Log into your router, and poke around the settings03:09
crdlbjrib: historically X has used a one Screen per monitor model, so when Xinerama was introduced, we had a single Screen consisting of two monitors for the first time, so they had to invent something new :)03:10
kitchejrib: did you try using the ubuntu tools to turn it off03:10
kitchecrdlb: I m pretty sure jrid knows all about Xinerama :)03:10
kitchebah jrib03:10

danbh_intrepid1Razer: can you get to the login page?03:11
tberchis it linksys?03:11
jribcrdlb: heh, ok.  qlite window manager checks for xinerama using xlib's Display.has_extension().  I don't use it, so it makes a stupid assumption.  I'm assuming has_extension() would not return True for xinerama if I disabled it somehow, but this doesn't seem to happen.  So I was wondering if there was a different way to disable it03:12
tberchrazer, you can hold down the reset button for 10 sec's on your router, and it will reset...03:12
keepsakeRazer: In your browser go to and see if that works.03:12
tberchif you cant get in03:12
kitchejrib: you could try using dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg03:13
crdlbjrib: I'm not sure, but disabling XRandR (or twinview) might do it03:13

keepsakeRazer: Figure out the port you need03:19
keepsakeRazer: And put it into the thing03:19

keepsakeRazer: Put 51413 in both start/end03:20
keepsakeRazer: Check enable03:20
jribcrdlb: hmm, I see.  It's probably better to change the way it tests.  The author uses xinerama so I assume it was never tested otherwise :)  It really just needs to know how many screens I have03:20
keepsakeRazer: You might want to google "port forwarding linksys"03:20
keepsakeRazer: I'm not too good with this03:20
Razerkeepsake, application?03:20
bobertdossixth: First of all, are you certain Windows is on the first partition of the first hard drive? Also, between root and makeactive, it is sometimes useful to add savedefault. Oh, and Windows entries generally go outside the automagic list.03:21

ale_canal do ubuntu03:29
danbh_intrepid1r00t__: generally, transcoding from one lossy codec to another results in allot of quality loss (ie mp3 -> ogg).  So its better to just reroll the mp3 to a different bitrate03:29

koshar1Leefmcz so you want whatever the windows command is to replace the mbr03:32
bobertdossixth: I mean, put the Windows entry after the line that says ### END DEBIAN AUTOMAGIC KERNEL LIST03:32
Leefmczkoshar1: Well why not in linux?03:32
mnLeefmcz:  I have the code I used.  Want me to paste bin them?03:32
koshar1Leefmcz why do you want grub if your just booting into windows?03:32
J-nWhat is the diffrence between using synaptic or add/remove programs for installing programs?03:32
Leefmczkoshar1: At the moment i cant even boot into windows because i have a separate boot partition, and it wont work right.03:33
koshar1Leefmcz that guide is to replace grub after installing windows AND retaining ubuntu03:33
v3ctorLeefmcz: http://www.users.bigpond.net.au/hermanzone/p18.htm#Windows_XP_Recovery_Console03:33
Mustafa_Kayahi all03:33
Leefmczkoshar1: I am going to install ubuntu again later, i'd do it now but i dont have the time03:33
Mustafa_Kayai couldnt connect to the internet on ubuntu03:33
bobertdossixth: If it helps, mine looks like this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/47059/03:33
Mustafa_Kayawhat can i do*03:33
sixthbobertdos: thanks ill soon reboot to check. i also have a kernel problem, do you have any expirence with those?03:34
koshar1well you will need sonewhere to instyall the grubs stage 2 files03:34
tarrantJ-n: I believe that the difference is that synaptic is fully powered while add/remove program is for your average non-geek.03:34
MTecknologyI have this in auto.master "/media/music    /etc/auto.music --timeout 60" and this in auto.music "music       -rw,soft,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192". If I mount is with "mount /medis/music" it works fine. but if I do that in autofs, it doesn't appear to ever actually mount.03:34
bobertdossixth: not really, ;\03:34
Leefmczv3ctor: I'd rather do it the linux way.. heh. Since thats the main OS.. im just attempting a dual boot here..03:34
sixthbobertdos: i will reboot now to check03:34
J-ntarrant thanks, i was kinda wondering... lol.. kept finding much more intresting programs via synaptic than add/remove03:34
Mustafa_Kayahey mn03:35
v3ctorLeefmcz: you said you don;t have linux installed03:35
Mustafa_Kayamn: hey03:35
Mustafa_Kayado you know how to achieve it?03:35
Leefmczv3ctor: Yet, i'll be installing that soon (probably tomorrow, its late and i need to sleep for work)03:35
[Neurotic]Hi, I'm trying to debug a kernel panic I can reproduce with iwl4965, and I can get it to show in the alt+ctrl+f1 console, but its too big for my screen, so I can't see it all.  Is there anyway I can push it to a file?03:35
Leefmczv3ctor: I had to remove linux to get stupid ass windows to work. It didn't like being the 6th partition.03:35
v3ctorLeefmcz: you need to have it there to get grub to work properly03:36
Leefmczv3ctor: If i install Ubuntu into my ubuntu partition, will it fix the GRUB thing?03:36
jrgpif it overwrites the boot record, yeah03:36
Leefmczjrgp: Well, will it?03:36
jrgpit will install grub, in doing so it will set it up for your newly installed ubuntu and it will alsom most likely detect your windows partition too03:37
jrgpif it is still working03:37
koshar1Leefmcz it will because it will reinstall the grub files in /boot/grub03:37
v3ctorit will fix grub, and if you get lucky it will detect your windows and add that03:37
Leefmczk, thanks. I'll install ubuntu again :)03:37
jrgpyou won't regret it :)03:37
LeefmczI was just trying to avoid the install time03:37
koshar1Leefmcz at the moment the stage one of grub is looking for them and they dont exist03:37
koshar1Leefmcz otherwise your options are to fix the windows bootloader03:38
Leefmczjrgp: No trust me, im not leaving ubuntu. I kept my /home partition. I just wanted 20gig of windows for gaming, thats all03:38
v3ctorLeefmcz: you could learn the grub command line03:38
koshar1 Leefmcz and why do you need 6 partitions?03:38
puffI seem to be having a problem getting wireless working.  It *was* working okay, but now I don't seem to be able to get a response from DHCP servers.  This is the third network I've had the problem with, which would seem to rule out a problem with the router/WAP.03:38
mnwhat command do I do to find out the wireless card I have?03:39
Leefmczkoshar1: I forget how many it was exactly, but there was a boot, os, swap, /home, umm.. and somethin else, iirc03:39
Leefmczkoshar1: Windows wouldn't format, it said there were too many partitions.03:39
Razerkeepsake, :'( port still closed03:39
Leefmczkoshar1: I had to put windows on the 2nd partition03:39
jrgpLeefmcz, if I were you I'd wipe the drive, install windows first, then install ubuntu; that'd probably make your situation easier to get out of03:41
=== crackhead_25 is now known as xjohnthomasx
Leefmczjrgp: Blech, no time. If this works so be it, if not, then i need to copy a ton of data off of my /home03:41
FlannelLeefmcz: What are you doing?03:42
jrgpI'd have that data backed up first, before you do anything03:42
puffCan anybody help me troubleshoot my disappearing wireless?03:42
=== erichammond1 is now known as erichammond
Razerkeepsake, do you see anything wrong with this http://paste.ubuntu.com/47057/ ?03:42
LeefmczFlannel: Making a mess of things, because windows is lame. :)03:42
FlannelLeefmcz: Ah.  Yeah, that happens.03:42
kidd3ckztheres no need for a windows channel to discuss problems03:42
LeefmczFlannel: The story is long, but basically i had a ton of partitions (boot, home, swap, etc), and windows wouldn't install when it was the 6th partition. it said too many. So i removed my os partition, and put windows on that. Well now my GRUB is hosed, so im trying to install ubuntu03:43
LeefmczFlannel: Install ubuntu, to fix GRUB.03:43
FlannelLeefmcz: ah, yeah.  Windows doesn't like being on a non-primary partition03:43
LeefmczFlannel: So sd1 is boot, sd2 is windows, sd3 / is ubuntu.. which im trying to do now.03:44
LeefmczFlannel: I hate windows. :)03:44
FlannelLeefmcz: If that doesn't work plain, you can map windows to think its sda103:45
Scruffy00Help!  I can't get the mail notification sound in Evolution to work.  I have read the forums and researched google but nothing has worked.  I am using version of Evolution on a Dell Inspiron 1420.  I am using Alsa also.  The file is .wav and can be heard using a media player.  Please someone help me.  I don't want to go back to Vista.03:45
LeefmczFlannel: Question, i saved my /home, but im installing ubuntu now. However, im giving the OS partition a mapping of /, do i need to give my home partition a /home mount? I'm afraid of touching that partition, in fear of losing data03:46
dashnu_Scruffy00: rofl all because of a mail sound wow03:46
FlannelLeefmcz: Yeah, In the partitioner you say "use this partition as /home, but don't format it"03:46
jrgp<Leefmcz>, yes you do03:46
filsuf /close03:46
Scruffy00If I am going to switch I would like to have everything working.03:46
palominoScruffy00: can't get enough of that AOL mail notification, eh?03:46
LeefmczFlannel: What about the others? Does boot need /boot, or swap need any mount, etc?03:46
jrgpLeefmcz, no03:47
jrgpthose can stay under the / partition03:47
jrgpnot swap03:47
jrgpthe others yes03:47
Scruffy00Nah, Dr. Who.  I have to have the sound because I am away from my desk and sometimes an important e-mail comes that I will need.03:47
FlannelLeefmcz: Are you going to be using them as separate partitions? or getting rid of them as separate? (moving them under /) andyes, you need swap03:47
LeefmczFlannel: They're already separate partitions, im just asking if they all need mount points. So far the only mount points i have defined are /home and /03:48
FlannelLeefmcz: If you want to use them, yes, you'll specify that during the partition stage.03:48
falloremy sound isn't working, it was very recently, i have no idea why and didn't change anything. ideas?03:49
LeefmczFlannel: Well do i need to specify mounts for a boot and swap partitions? Those are the only others03:49
fLufyzwhat is the antivirus in ubuntu03:49
FlannelLeefmcz: yes.  Well, swap just gets marked as swap, it doesn't really have a mount point.03:49
jrgpfLufyz, ubuntu does not typtically need anti virus03:49
puffHm, dmesg has lines saying:  "ipw2200:  Failed to send SYSTEM_CONFIG: Already sending a command"03:49
Cpudan80fLufyz: you really dont need one03:49
jrgpfLufyz, only windows needs anti virus03:50
fLufyzthanx jrgp & Cpudan8003:50
bobertdosfLufyz: In fact, the one time I did try AV for Ubuntu, it actually corrupted my installation.03:50
kingI has just GTalk in empathy?how can i add msn to it?03:50
LeefmczFlannel: So boot is a mount of /boot then? Also, How do i mount the home partition? It says i have to choose a file system before i can mount, is that fine? (Ie, will choosing a file system format it? Again, i really need to protect the data on my home partition)03:50
torvaldsjrgp: wrong. Linux users are just as vulnerable to virii03:50
LeefmczFlannel: Just dont check format and im fine?03:50
jrgpbot "just as:03:51
Scruffy00So apparently I am on my own?03:51

torvaldsI don't go on IRC often. I'm just here to say hi to the community.03:52

jrgpbut is less feature packed03:52
torvaldsBeck: try kde ;)03:53
chubs_torvalds, speak swedish ;)03:53
LeefmczFlannel: Im not, im against formatting /home, but i think i got it worked out. I was asking before i tried it. Seems if you select efi, it doesn't give you control over formatting or mount point. So all is well i think :)03:53
Becktorvalds, is it better?03:53

mediacan someone please help me with this issue03:54
FlannelLeefmcz: That's correct.  Givign it a mountpoint means "use this"03:54

Geoffrey2amenado, I'm just rather confused as to why the Network Settings manager wouldn't save that for me automatically04:01
amenadopuff anything?04:01
Flannelarooni: 4G swap tops (likely less).  Since you've got 320G, you can splurge a little and give yourself like 30G for / and then /home for the rest.  I'd go / /home swap (this also means you can reduce your swap later, and merge some with home)04:01

Scruffy00That would be great bobertdos.04:09
puffamenado: But thank you for at least confirming that other people can hear me :-).04:09
pufffallore: Okay, so the basic fix for the problem - which is that the hardware only provides one sound resource lock and the OS can't release it, so the first app to request it has a monopoly on it - is to insert a layer of software between the hardware and everything else.   Used to be this was a package called esd, then IIRC, alsa superceded that.   I think that's still the current solution.04:10

kapacedaft punk is here!! wooo!05:55
yaroAny ideas on how I can get alsamixer working? Kinda need it to get my rescording on Audacity.05:55
soltekHello, I'm a newbie and would like to know what are considered to be executable files on a Linux system. I'm trying Ubuntu.05:55
Daft_PunkAgrajag, you need a wireless access point module or wireless hub or router to broadcast the signal, your computer can't do that05:55
Daft_Punksoltek, .deb files are executable, but anything you can and need to install is in the add/remove programs section under applications05:56
damoexacly what i have05:56
Agrajag-Daft_Punk: ah right ok ta05:56
Daft_Punksoltek, some applications may not be installable until you have the correct repositories added05:56
remitaylorremitaylor: in response to my own question (for the log) ... i should re-package the deb with an incremented version number and then apt shouldn't complain anymore (props to #debian for helping out, altho they were very mean to me because i'm using ubuntu, not debian).  apt is auto-upgrading my package because the version number isn't higher than the current one.05:56
Agrajag-what does "Create new wireless network" in networkmanager actually do? I can't seem to find networkmanager documentation05:56
izinucssoltek, in my limited understanding linux is a text based system so a text file could be executable. so can .jar files .. .deb ... .bin..  .sh   etc.. it's not as clear cut as widows when it comes to executibles05:57
Daft_PunkAgrajag, if you can't find your network through broadcasting, (IE your ssid is silent) then you can manually add the wireless network information in (if you know your ssid and key)05:57
Daft_PunkAgrajag, you have to have a wireless router and you have to set up your wireless network (instructions come with the wireless router)05:57
yaroNo one knows what I can do to fix alsamixer?05:57
soltekThanks, I guess that about covers it.05:58
Daft_Punkyaro, sorry...05:59
Daft_Punkyaro, just keep asking your question every couple of minutes (dont screen flood) and someone should be able to help you05:59
delfickhello, does anyone know how I'd go about making a link to a folder using the commandline ?? "ln -s testFolder destinationFolder" makes a link but it say it's broken .....05:59
Agrajag-Daft_Punk: i don't think what you said is correct. if it is, what's the difference between "Connect to other wireless network" and "Create New Wireless Network"?05:59
Daft_PunkAgrajag, I know what I said is correct, a computer can NOT broadcast wireless signals, you must purchase a wireless router06:00
Daft_PunkAgrajag, if you have a wireless network you can broadcast the ssid or keep it hidden. if it is broadcasted you can search for ssid and connect to other wireless network. if your ssid is hidden you must enter in the ssid and key manually hence "create new wireless network"06:01
Cpudan80Hello all06:01

Cpudan80Like /home/debrac/music is a symlink over to my external06:01
LSD|Ninjahidden SSIDs aren't secure and they create more problems than they solve so meh06:01
Agrajag-Daft_Punk: that's what the "Connect to other wireless network" option is for. the "Create New Wireless Network" clearly does something else.06:01
Cpudan80It worked fine before..... any ideas why it might have stopped working?06:02
Daft_PunkLSD|Ninja, true... but im just trying to explain to Agrajag that "create new wireless network" under network manager does not mean your computer can turn itself into a router and start broadcasting wireless signals06:02
yaroI ask again: I can't get alsamixer to run. My console output can be found here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/47080/06:02

ykphuahLurkersA: will that take sound away from my firefox?07:52
RynolWhat about the bar?07:52

sfer3Sure the battery is good?10:59
xnvzetheroo: Ubuntu != Linux10:59

giggseyI'm trying to boot the ubuntu livecd, and it said that the sd module is something, and now it's i/o erroring when trying to access my sata drive11:00
ActionParsnipMessWithTheBest-: rename both those folders11:00
ActionParsnipid == i'd11:00
xnvzetheroo: So you're wrong to make such conclusions based on the information you've offered.11:00
zetherooxnv: what was I wrong about?11:01
MessWithTheBest-ActionParsnip: oky. Should i rename the "Totem" folders or the outer folders??11:01
xnvzetheroo: First of all, your approach. If you want help making your battery last longer, ask. This isn't a complaint channel.11:01
zetherooxnv: I just said that Windows has power management down much better than Linux11:01
zetherooxnv: I did ask before .. you don't have to be so sensitive11:02
ActionParsnipMessWithTheBest-: just the totem folders, just the ones it found11:02
xnvzetheroo: Ubuntu != Linux. A bad experience with Ubuntu does not mean the Linux kernel is worse than Windows at power management.11:02
Chousukeit's not just the kernel that affects battery life.11:04
ActionParsnipMessWithTheBest-: once renamed, run totem11:04
Chousukemany applications may have an adverse effect.11:04
giggseyI'm getting "Driver sd needs updating please use bus_type methods" when trying to boot the livecd, and then it's going into busybox. How can I get the livecd booted?11:04
MessWithTheBest-ActionParsnip: It WORKS!11:04
ActionParsnipMessWithTheBest-: renamingthose folders will strip your config back to factoy defaults11:04
ActionParsnipMessWithTheBest-: those folders hold the configs for apps on a per user basis11:05
zetherooxnv: well I hear a lot of different stuff from a lot of people all professing to be mouthpieces for Linux11:05
ActionParsnipMessWithTheBest-: renaming them to different to expected makes the system give you stock settings11:05
ActionParsnipMessWithTheBest-: you must have played too much and set it wrong11:05
Chousukezetheroo: besides, windows level power management is not something Linux should strive for11:05
ActionParsnipMessWithTheBest-: you can do it with almost any app11:05
MessWithTheBest-ActionParsnip: yeah maybe!11:05
Chousukezetheroo: if there's something to emulate, it's OS X.11:05
MessWithTheBest-ActionParsnip: cool trick11:06
MessWithTheBest-ActionParsnip: thnx man11:06
ActionParsnipMessWithTheBest-: now it works, you can delete the folders you renamed (new names as their will be new folders of the original name)11:06
zetherooChousuke: I just know that Windows Vista gives almost double the battery life that Ubuntu gives11:06
ActionParsnipMessWithTheBest-: np man11:06
danielehi all11:06
Chousukezetheroo: then something is wrong with your configuration11:06
Chousukezetheroo: power management on Linux is very configurable; something is wrong with your system if the difference is that huge.11:07
zetherooChousuke: thats what I have been told... and then I had people helping me configure it .. but its still not happening11:07
ActionParsnipMessWithTheBest-: remember, always rename so you can roll back11:07
xnvzetheroo: This is a support channel. If you want help improving battery life, ask. Otherwise...11:07
ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, #ubuntu+1 supports the development version of Ubuntu and #ubuntu-offtopic is for random chatter. Welcome!11:07

JubeiI have ran the latest iso of ubuntu and booted in live mode, I am trying to print to a usb printer but to no avail. any ideas why? ubuntu 64bit iso | 32bit vmware player | 64bit Vista (could that be the problem?) Vmware sees the printer though and ubuntu recognizes it properly. Just gives an error message from cups "There was an error during the CUPS operation: 'client-error-document-format-not-supported'12:57
ZirodayJubei: what printer12:57

davidguesti no someon said their was a firewall up but i dont no hw to open the ports jrib13:06
ushimitsudokiDabbu: If you are unable to accept an OS that is not an exact clone of Windows, and therefore prefix or postfix every comment about Ubuntu with something like "...but in windows ..." then save yourself and others a lot of frustration and do NOT use Ubuntu.13:06
jribdavidguest: line 22 drops everything.  That means the three ircd rules you have after line 22 never have any effect13:06
ushimitsudokiDabbu: Otherwise, give it a couple of weeks tryout and see if it works for you.13:07

Darrenpaullittlength but does not let me connect, so then I used ndiswrapper with a windows driver that shows signel strength and lets me connect to an open connection but not wep with the right code,14:21
Darrenpaullittleis there any way I can just get this stupid thing to work be doing another fresh install of ubutu and just adding something easy,,,tryed so many things and so many hours reading but its not helping,,, could it be that my sony is not compatible with the wireless or some thing else....please help im going crazy, sorry for so much do hard to explain in a few words14:21
