urioli find this operating system very good00:04
etherealpandaMax-P: yeah, restarting to fix it is a bad solution, but it should help narrow down the problem00:04
daklancsilk: depends on how you use your laptop. you can probably set it at 1gb for now00:04
el3allaliraulh: i'm new to linux, i still don't know lot of commands00:04
SchuenemannFunoost, mkdir dir_name00:04

raulhel3allali: now i'm lost there haha.00:04
ThexLeopardand windows is running on the computer youre trying to access?00:04
daklancsilk: usually a good estimate would be twice the size of your ram00:04
xompThexLeopard, yeah00:04
D3RGPS31Raulh: have any links to help me set it for htaccess D=00:04
ThexLeopardand theres no firewall on the windows computer?00:05
daklanbut anything bigger than 2gb is overkill on a laptop00:05
csilkdaklan, mainly software developement, nothing mroe instense than compiling really00:05
raulhill see wat i can dig up00:05
xompThexLeopard, no firewall at all, even the windows firewall is disabled.00:05
Max-Petherealpanda I dont know if there is a link with my problem, but looks my touchpad is not in the xorg.conf :S00:05
Funoosthow do you copy files00:05
D3RGPS31\o/ life is good!00:05
Funoostits cp isnt it00:05
SchuenemannFunoost, yes00:05
ThexLeopardare your permissions set correctly?00:05
daklancsilk: your activities are more RAM-intensive. swapping won't occur that often. i suggest 1gb00:05
raulhD3RGPS31:, can you show me your htaccess file's code?00:05
csilkdaklan,  thanks00:05
xompThexLeopard, yeah, they're the same permissions I had prior to installing ubuntu, just read access no write on that share.00:05
raulhdaklan good swap space is always below what your real ram is00:05
raulhusualy 620 is just fine00:06

D3RGPS31RaulH: yes00:06
ThexLeopardok, you can either try restarting and trying again, or hosting a windows share on the ubuntu computer and trying to go the other way00:06
el3allaliraulh: well, the xorg.conf still contain wrong settings, i used nvidia xserver utility to set resolution, but i have to save that on xorg.conf, this way it will start with a good resolution by default00:06
etherealpandaMax-P, It's got a section on how to configure the touchpad00:06
ThexLeopardcopying the files on the windows computer to the ubuntu computer00:06
daklanraulh: depending on your computer's purpose, swap space can be equal or greater than your available ram00:06
Funoostdo you just do cp * [directory]?00:06
ryan_Can you make a copy of all your installed programs, burn the entire ubunutu OS to a disk, and Install that customized version on another PC.  I love my Ubuntu setup, but do not want to reinstall of my programs on my work computer.00:06

superrocasorry con someone help me?00:07
Funoostif i wanna copy everything00:07
raulhatleast for me it rarely gets used..00:07
daklanraulh: for example, dbase servers usually need more swap space than most desktops00:07
ThexLeopardyeah i got that rofl00:07
ThexLeopardhang on00:07
el3allaliraulh: nvidia xserver doesn't have permission to write on xorg.conf00:07

el3allaliSchuenemann: witch option do i have to choose ?00:17
uffokitche: this is example that portable works00:17
daklanroukoun: gnu libs and windows libs have some sort of incompatibility. is your source code written originally for MS?00:17
kitcheuffo: and your point being?00:17
uffokitche: this is future for all software and it wont damage main system libraries too00:18
Schuenemannel3allali, it's like a normal installation. When it asks for confirmation, it says everything that will be done. You just pay attention to see if it will choose the external HD mbr00:18
kitcheuffo: if you want portable vlc then use this http://portableapps.free.fr/exe/VLC_TV_Portable_0.8.6f_Fr.exe00:18
uffokitche: it is windows thing00:18
kitcheuffo: ok your telling somone that already knows all of this so what's your point?00:18

psynophileHello, while at the console, not GUI, I type my username and password, then my system asks me for the password again. After I type it again, it logs me in, what's up with that?00:50
FlynsarmyIn my update manager i have virtualbox-ose-modules-generic and k3b that are both greyed out and always there even after i update. why? how do i actually update them?00:52
IntuitiveNipplepsynophile: sticky key affects the first password entry maybe?00:53
EvilDaemonFlynsarmy Maybe it's virtualbox-ose-modules-`uname -r` manually in the terminal?00:54
psynophileIntuitiveNipple: huh, what's "sticky key"?00:54
psynophileoh, duh, sorry, you mean a sticky key00:54
psynophilewouldn't that kick me back to "Username:" because the password would be wrong?00:55
IntuitiveNipplepsynophile: sometimes a key will remain pressed and fire a second time. If you type your password fast, and especially if you have a mix of lower-case and CaPiTaLs, that can affect it00:55
FlynsarmyEvilDaemon, 2.6.24-19-generic00:55
IntuitiveNipplepsynophile: usually it gives three attempts on password, doesn't it?00:55
psynophileIntuitiveNipple: Oh, I see what you're saying. No, it's asking for the password twice, it doesn't go back to the username:00:56
JuzzyDNo one can help with pulse?00:56
psynophileIntuitiveNipple: Like this: username:<type my username>, password: <type my password>, password: <type my password>00:56
IntuitiveNipplepsynophile: I see what you mean... on a console itself00:56
psynophileIntuitiveNipple: yea, on a virtual console00:57
psynophileIntuitiveNipple: I'm just worried it's a trojan or rootkit trying to get my password00:57
IntuitiveNipplepsynophile: Hmmm, is the second password question definitely a repeat of the first? Could it be something else? Have you added addtional PAM modules for authentication?00:58
IntuitiveNipplepsynophile: check  /var/log/auth.log for clues00:58
psynophileIntuitiveNipple: this started happening almost immediately after i did this: 1) Installed the system 2) updated 3) let it sit for a weekend00:59
IntuitiveNipplepsynophile: Does it happen when the system is first started and you get the GUI prompt?00:59
matt____1I have a LAMP ubuntu server setup, I'm wondering...is it possible to "integrate" html OR php with sql/mysql? I'm wanting to create a page to simplfy quering and such.

AnusienNone of my media applications (mythfrontend, amarok, mplayer) are playing any sound.  The error amarok gives is  "xine was unable to initialize any audio drivers".  I think it might be related to how flash sometimes steals the audio driver, but I've closed firefox and nothing.  Also did a `sudo alsa reload` and still no sound.  Any other solutions?01:01

Damion1890 /msg ubottu etiquette01:06
Anusienpsynophile: so is there an answer to this problem besides reboot?01:06
psynophilematt____1: Joomla's customized db queries would be called modules, you'd have to code that yourself, if the db is totally customized. Otherwise there are some form/sql integration modules on joomla's website that might work01:06
IntuitiveNippleAnusien: is the system using pulse-audio? maybe you need to restart the pa session server?01:07
matt____1psynophile: You mean joomla may do it? I'll take a look. So would I perhaps..with enough configuration, be able to open the joomla page, type someone's last name into a box, and hit query? Then it'd bring up the info for them?01:07
thethirdmooseis there a way to change the beige default color of all the windows? Not the titlebars, the windows themselves01:08
matt____1psynophile: A form! That's essentially what I want...i think.01:08
PoliticsDamion1890: Fine. I'm sorry for using an explicitive.01:08
psynophilematt____1: Yea, that's, unfortunately what you have to do. Now, drupal has a forms api that may be easier for you to work with, so you may want to look at that..01:08
matt____1psynophile: Hmm...perhaps...01:09
PoliticsBut I've been dealing with issue after issue since I installed ubuntu a week ago, and now this is making me think I need to do a fresh reinstall, which would pretty much make me snap.01:09
psynophilematt____1: It's kind of disappointing. I mean, Joomla can do ALL OF THIS STUFF, but you can't make a simple form to query a database? WTF? You know?01:09
AnusienIntuitiveNipple: I have no idea, how can I check?01:09

thethirdmooseis there a way to change the beige default color of all the windows? Not the titlebars, the windows themselves01:10

Juje007how can I give the application PHP more memory on my server?01:19

IntuitiveNipplematt____: if connecting to a remote system you'll also need -h <hostname>01:20
matt____1psynophile: No..I think I could probably incorporate variabless...echo and read...and then get it to insert the password each time after typing it.01:20

AnusienIntuitiveNipple: Anyway, do you think that could be the problem (seems similar, since non-amarok programs just silently don't play audio) and how would it get fixed?01:34
matt____IntuitiveNipple: what do the -s and -p do?01:35
IntuitiveNippleAnusien: I don't know, sound applications are generally well-behaved around me  :)01:35
belkinhelp2Jordan_U....a bit over my head01:35

belkinhelp2how do I use the GUI to make the setting change01:36
matt____IntuitiveNipple: ahh..nice.01:36
belkinhelp2also...i have 4 config files01:36

belkinhelp2and 4 configsav files01:36
IntuitiveNipplematt____: notice the mysql query is in double-quotes01:36
psynophileZoneOUT: and you already said that cabextract didn't work?01:36
IntuitiveNipplematt____: that ensure the BASH variable $LN is converted by the shell rather than passed literally01:36
belkinhelp2Jordan_U....confi.failsafe i mean01:36
ZoneOUTpsynophile: so how do I get the inf out of it? No I can't get cabextract to install...01:36
austindoes anyone here know how to install vmware on ubuntu 8.1001:36
ubottuThe X Window System is the part of your system that's responsible for graphical output. To restart your X, type « sudo /etc/init.d/?dm restart » in a console - To fix screen resolution or other X problems: http://help.ubuntu.com/community/FixVideoResolutionHowto01:37
psynophileZoneOUT: You can't get it to INSTALL or you can't get it to EXTRACT THE EXE?01:37
ZoneOUTIf I send the file to you can you just send me the inf01:37
ZoneOUTI can't get it to install01:37
psynophileZoneOUT: sudo apt-get -y install cabextract01:37
matt____IntuitiveNipple: Hmm...the command just goes back to the terminall..perhaps I should make it clear that I want to show the data in the prompt?01:37
Scuniziaustin: that's a question for #ubuntu+1  but for gp.. it should be the same as for 8.04 if you are using the 2.xx beta version.. for 1.x.x you probably won't be able to.01:37
unopmatt____, i would also put $password in double quotes, to protect against the shell expanding and acting on the variable.  mysql -u root -p "$password"01:37
psynophileZoneOUT: but i didn't even have to do that, it was installed by default01:37
DasEiaustin: free vmware ?01:38
matt____unop: I'm having troubles understanding the double quotes...perhaps a pastebin my friend?01:38

ZoneOUTI figured that out ;)01:41
cok_yasa_kamilj #ubuntu-tr01:41

mnWhat is the default password for "su"?01:43
belkinhelp2Jordan_U....good question01:43
unop!root | mn01:43
ubottumn: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo01:43
psynophileZoneOUT: the instructions that you're reading probably aren't clear, so let me tell you what you're doing. You're trying different compression programs on an exe to see which one extracts it. It's also possible that this exe isn't an archive or is some obscure type that you can't find. You're doing this to get the inf file out so that you can install the ndis drivers01:43
ZoneOUThttp://paste.ubuntu.com/48746/ should I do anything about this01:43
matt____unop: ohh...right. But I'm not sure this is running correctly..when I run...it doesn't actually show the data..01:44
belkinhelp2Jordan_U....i only have this problem because i swapped hard drives01:44

AnusienIntuitiveNipple: alsa reload didn't do it, but alsa force-reload killed the processes holding onto alsa01:44

mnwow, thnx unop01:44
belkinhelp2Jordan_U....I dont understand why its not recognizing the hardware I was using before the switch01:44
BajoranSo if a cd-drive isn't mounted automatically then its probably screwed somehow, and my ntfs partition for vista is also not mounted because my hewit-packard pheonix ghosting bios is keeping it from being read01:44

psynophileZoneOUT: try to do sudo apt-get -y install cabextract now01:45
belkinhelp2Jordan_U....so there is no reason for it to do this.01:45
_Zeus_anom01y: shouldn''t be01:45
mnunop: is the only difference between sudo su and sudo -i is that su preserves your directory?01:45
_Zeus_are you running other stuff?01:45

_Zeus_anom01y: please come back when you do01:46
Jordan_Ubelkinhelp2: Did you use screens and graphics on your initial install?01:46
psynophileZoneOUT: lookin but I'm not seeing...01:47
psynophileZoneOUT: Just go to terminal and type 'cabextract'01:47
belkinhelp2Jordan_U....i changed settings around plenty of times for the past year or so01:47
Jordan_Ubelkinhelp2: Use the default ( in fact you can generate a default config no questions asked with "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg -phigh )01:47
unopmn, errm, i'm not sure if it preserved more environmental variables too - but you could say that i suppose - in any case, it's safer to use sudo -i01:47
psynophileZoneOUT: does it say 'no cabinet files specified...'?01:47
IntuitiveNipplematt____: pastebin the current script version01:47
matt____IntuitiveNipple: http://pastebin.com/m12ead4ee01:48

Bajoran/dev/sda1 /media/windows ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.utf8 0 001:48
Bajoranwould that work?01:49
Bajoranif the partition was /dev/sda101:49
unopmatt____, try fine tuning the mysql command so it works from the command line before putting it in a script.01:49
matt____unop: Good idea...01:49
psynophilemcquaid: the proposed-updates repo has 2.6.24-21-generic01:49
IntuitiveNipplematt____: there shouldn't be a space between -p and the password itself, if it is on the command line try using --password="$password" instead... the other thing is, those quotes might be causing a problem so you could try "--password=$password"01:49
Bajoranin ftap01:49
matt____unop: with no variables....right?01:49
unopmatt____, right01:49
mcquaidcause i'm using this wifi usb adapter which driver (zd1211) has known issues in 2.6.2401:50
matt____IntuitiveNipple: I seem to remember that about the password...01:50
mcquaidand it's had various fixes in 2.6.2601:50
psynophilemcquaid: enable proposed-updates, it might be in there...01:50
unopIntuitiveNipple, that wouldn't work - the mysql command would see the entire quoted expression as one option/argument01:50
matt____IntuitiveNipple: Oh snap! It worked.01:51
psynophilemcquaid: the fixes, i mean01:51
matt____unop: It did work!01:51
unopmatt____, what worked?01:51
ZoneOUTI've got a mess here..01:51
ZoneOUTyes it says command not found.'01:51
psynophileZoneOUT: okay, it's NOT installed, then01:51
matt____unop: what IntuitiveNipple told me...about the -ppassword and quotes...01:51
IntuitiveNippleunop: Yes it will. try it and see01:51
mcquaidnaw i seached updates01:51
psynophileZoneOUT: sudo apt-get -y install cabextract01:51
ZoneOUTyes I realize that.. alright then it trys to install java and the cab and I get a text document01:52
Bajoranwhats the command to switch directory in bash01:52
mcquaids/b an easier way to grab just the module src from the latest kern and compile it for 2.6.24 instead of compiling the whole kern01:52
IntuitiveNippleBash removes the "..." quotes when it processes the command-line01:52
unopmatt____, i was referring to "--password=something"01:52
ScuniziBajoran: cd01:52
IntuitiveNippleunop: Yes, that works01:52
matt____unop: it worked...01:52
unopIntuitiveNipple, well, it's not normal - but i guess if it works, it works01:52

belkinhelp2Jordan_U....in xorg01:53
unopIntuitiveNipple, never mind.01:53
matt____unop: IntuitiveNipple Now...I just realized I hate typing in that long password..if someone ssh's into my system..mounts the db via truecrypt...I think they'll have an easy time figuring out my mysql password...so do you see any problems with putting the password in the script?01:53
user01everytime i do system quit the menus go away and nothing happens01:53
Jordan_Ubelkinhelp2: You can't01:53
belkinhelp2Jordan_U....i feel like such a fish01:54
IntuitiveNippleunop: bash ensures that anything wrapped in double-quotes is passed as a single command-line argument (e.g. $2)01:54
user01it is hardy heroin01:54
wolihave any of you guys tried chrome under ubuntu?01:54
unopmatt____, well, if someone else has the ability to execute your script - they have the ability to read it too - so hard-coding a password is never a good idea01:54
unopIntuitiveNipple, i said never mind - i'm not interested in how mysql processes command line options01:54
user01any ideas?01:54
nubuntuanybody know of any room that specializes in tiny linux distros, like muLinux?  i have an old compaq that has win95 on it.  on the back it says 'series 2870b'.  of course it has no cdrom, although i have an old cdrom 'backpack bantam' unit that has like a parallel port, i wonder if i could make something boot from that.  i've heard that old drives don't work well tho they have lots of...01:54
nubuntu...errors?  anybody feel like getting hands dirty, or have any suggestions what i should try to put on it?  of course it has a floppy drive, but i need help with that process too.  not like i'm asking a lot, huh?  oh, yeah, i have a pen and paper too.01:54
matt____unop: That's true...so then they COULD ssh into my system...but I don't see how anyone would read the script....is there a way?01:55
ldpNO U!01:55
ldpwrong channel01:55
unopIntuitiveNipple, though, i am aware of how bash works01:55
IntuitiveNippleunop: That isn't mysql, that is bash... which is why matt's script works01:55
Jordan_Ubelkinhelp2: Try this quickly, quit dpkg-reconfigure and just run "sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.probably_useless_backup" then restart X, it might just work and it will use all default settings and autodetection from Xorg itself01:55
unopmatt____, do you give ssh users the ability to execute your script?01:55
Scunizinubuntu: net install...01:55
matt____unop: Only myself...01:55

_Zeus_that's exactly what he wanted02:01
adudei think so02:01
belkinhelp2U_Jordan....but now my resolution is a bit higher than i had it originally set before the switch02:01
nubuntuDasEi, my friend is very happy with his 'new' computer, thanks again02:02
unop_Zeus_, poopuser, the directory /sys is special - if you want to break something bad, you've just done it with that command02:02
Jordan_Ubelkinhelp2: Is that a good thing or a bad thing :) ?02:02
DasEinubuntu:the win-knoppix ?02:02
belkinhelp2U_Jordan....and under system.administration.screens and graphics....the monitor is set at PnP at 60Hz....and i cant change it02:02
IntuitiveNipplematt____: well you can decide, but that is a way to not store the password anywhere but in your head.02:02
nubuntuDasEi, ya02:02
poopuserDasEi like i didn't done that before also thx zeus but ln -s dose not seems to works for me any other suggestions?02:02
_Zeus_unop: the folder doesn't even exist on my system02:02
Jordan_Ubelkinhelp2: Don't use screens and graphics, it's more likely to screw things up than do any good02:02
belkinhelp2Jordan_U....well no not really.  But how do i reset the sreens and graphics option02:03
nubuntugonna go search to try to find how to get at the bios on this thing02:03
unop_Zeus_, it does on mine - the kernel sysfs is mounted there02:03
matt____IntuitiveNipple: but I'm thinking along these lines...currently the ssh password is the same as the mysql password...I don't think anyone can read the batch file without ssh'ing first. Unless you see something I don't.02:03
belkinhelp2Jordan_U....perhaps its time to upgrade to Hardy Heron02:03
_Zeus_unop: no, i don02:03
_Zeus_*t have that folder02:03

belkinhelp2Jordan_U...but this time it is an onboard sound, not the old card.02:06
unop_Zeus_, please, don't be indifferent to his plight after running the command - if it's bad, you should advise against it - like when people ask how to enable to root password, you don't tell them how - atleast not in here02:06
belkinhelp2Jordan_U...correct driver installed but i get alot of static and the playback is erratic02:06
_Zeus_unop: ok, ok i get the point02:06
plutounop ahh the prejudice.... ;-)02:06
belkinhelp2Jordan_U...is there a magic command line to get ubuntu to dump the driver and reinstall it?02:06

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 risk02:49
JaseXNo prob.02:49

roukounis there any tutorial about how to modify the xorg.0.log ?03:12
ruththank to all of you03:12
JaseXas it appears.03:12
=== bfig_ is now known as bfig
Zirodayroukoun: thats the log file, you should not need to edit that. However if you want to you can open it in any text editor.03:12
bobbob1016Desktop-Kyle, Which config?  I did, and I checked "emulate virtual desktop" and it doesn't work03:12
FlannelCzarAlex: Hmm, and `ls -l /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/ | grep userdir` outputs stuff?03:13
Desktop-Kylebobbob1016, you don't want that :S03:13
CzarAlexFlannel, nothing actually.03:13
bobbob1016Desktop-Kyle, Then where in the config can I get it to go in a virtual window?  Instead of resizing my desktop each time I run a program?03:13
roukounZiroday: yes i know that but i'd like to find a tutorial to learn about its contents and how to modify it safe03:13
FlannelCzarAlex: Ah, that'd be your problem then.  Do this: sudo a2enmod userdir && sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 force-reload03:13
Desktop-Kylebobbob1016, uncheck emulate virtual desktop03:14
FlannelCzarAlex: You didn't have the userdir module enabled (which is what handles the public_html stuff)03:14
Zirodayroukoun: are you sure you're meaning to refer to /etc/X11/xorg.conf ?03:14
CzarAlexFlannel, two separate commands right?03:14
FlannelCzarAlex: If you just copy that whole thing, the && will take care of it03:14
bobbob1016Desktop-Kyle, Maybe I'm not explaining myself.  I WANT a virtual desktop, so the program doesn't take the full screen.  My issue was that I couldn't get the window up.03:14
CzarAlexFlannel, wonderful03:14
roukounZiroday: /etc/X11/xorg.0.log03:15
Desktop-Kylebobbob1016, well, might wanna ask around, as i don't work with wine.03:15
JaseXroukoun: the file you refer to is just the output of X11 and it's output: i.e. whether or not its failing.03:15
HappyHaterroukoun, that's a log file03:15
CzarAlexFlannel, Perfect. Thank you very much!03:15
Flannelbobbob1016: You might have better luck with wine in #winehq03:15
Zirodayroukoun: that is a log file. It does not edit any settings. There is no point in changing it. You just read it to understand it03:15
JaseXroukoun: I believe you are looking to modify /etc/X11/xorg.conf03:15
wersfor some reason, my system monitor is opaque now. hahahaha. it's the only app that i noticed to be like that so far. hehe. i'm using a murrine theme. any idea on how to adjust it?03:15

JaseX_No Scunizi03:39
formodeathleone, Yes. Compiz has a habit of "screwing" with games that run fullscreen. Try turning it to none, and runnning the game.03:39
JaseX_yes exactly matt____1...03:39
JaseX_I thought so too @ Scunizi03:39
case^bharani: you need lib flash something03:39
DasEi JaseX_:right-click>close03:39
formodeathleone, If that resolves the issue we can fix it easily. :)03:39
JaseX_Or a cron script matt____103:39
matt____1JaseX_: Takes a little configuration, but here:03:39
ScuniziJaseX_: /win c03:39

JaseX_DasEi: how in the world does that work on irssi?03:40
matt____1JaseX_: just registar and read...I figured it out in about 20 minutes...works like a charm.03:40
matt____1JaseX_: oh, and it's free.03:40
JaseX_Thank you Scunizi I forgot the exact way to do it.03:40
formodeatheleone, I know. :) Don't worry, if it resolves your issue I'll show you how to keep it shiny. :)03:40

athleoneformode:  They keep saying something about anachronistic scheduler cron and battery state or something like that03:43

ZirodayFAJ: if that doesn't compile the -ng driver. And no due to legal reasons03:46
athleoneformode: done.03:47

Flannelathleone: Don't worry about it.  We all have to start somewhere.03:53
formodeathleone, Once you get it, open it, then go under General (at the top) and uncheck "Unredirect Fulllscreen windows"03:53

pxwebdev_how can I capture the results of a telnet session from the terminal to a log file.03:59
Flannelcodernator: first, you'll need to edit your sources.list and point your repos to http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ instead of archive.ubuntu.com (or whatever mirror you're using).  This will still be for breezy at the moment.03:59
FlannelGuma_: AMD64 is x86_6403:59
pxwebdev_previously i used something like "script telnet xxx.xx.xx.xxx >file.txt but I can remember the exact format03:59
athleoneformode I already did that.04:00

phuzionNallep, yes, they are shared environments.04:07
phuzionNallep, some users have sudo, most do not though04:07
Flannelxee: thats generally a safe assumption, but the app could technically do whatever it wants04:07
DasEiIMaverick:could also use paketmanager (synaptic)04:07
codernatorFlannel - Still not sure if it's 386 or 686.   I know it's not K704:07
unopKoN8392, well, using nautilus under sudo is safe - just as long as you limit it's use - close the window down as soon as you're done04:07
Flannelcodernator: What kernel are you using?04:08
DasEicodernator: install n run hwinfo...04:08
Flannelcodernator: (currently) see uname -a (you can just paste that output here if you want)04:08
danbh_intrepidcodernator: that doesnt matter...04:08
Nallepphuzion: if you trust the users who do have sudo to not screw around with your other machine, then it should be fine as long as you turn off read permissions for others04:08
codernatorflannel: 38604:08
KoN8392okie dokie04:08

Flannelcodernator: that doesn't surprise me.  That was mostly to double check you were up to date (and those metapackages were installed)04:14
kindofabuzzerror404notfound, you have to look on the internet for themes, emerald theme manager doesn't download for you04:14
Flannelcodernator: So, you don't need to reboot (since theres no kernel change).  So go ahead and continue (changing sources to dapper, etc)04:14
Flannelcodernator: Also, one more thing.  once you get to hardy, you may want to consider using the -generic kernel (linux-generic) instead of linux-38604:14
athleonedanbh_interpid: what does that do?04:14

athleone_When I play games there is no sound anymore. How come?04:17
RyanPriorathleone_: What games? What changed?04:17
phuzionNallep, so, what you're saying is one script to make the backup files, one script to send the files off, and one script to execute the file sending?  third script executes second, which executes the first04:17
athleoneRyanPrior: I used to have sound for Wormux. Now there is no sound.04:17
phuzionAnd the third script is called in with cron04:17
athleoneRyanPrior and yes, my sound is working well for everything other than games.04:18
RyanPriorathleone: Perhaps something is blocking the audio device. Does it work if you run it with pasuspender?04:18

smokewonHey there, im about to install Ubuntu 8.04 using the live CD, ive already got slackware and windows xp installed, im planning to install Ubuntu over the slackware partition, though the other day when i tried to resize my partitions using the Ubuntu live cd, i extended the windows partition slightly and after rebooting i was then unable to boot windows(using lilo that is), is there someway to safely resize a windows xp partition without m04:32
athleoneryanprior how?04:32
sloopymouse is usb?04:32
unopDecepticon, ok, who gives you this setup? an ISP or hosting service?04:32
Decepticonunop a hosting service04:32
katie_DasEi: how do i do that im not that familar with Ubuntu04:33
Decepticoni am wondering about the difficultiy ill encounter if i upgrade to ibex from this version of hardy..04:33
smokewonoh and does the live cd give you the option of creating a USB boot disk?04:33
Decepticonand knowing linux i know its goign to be totally batshit impossible04:33
hardcorewhich external dvd burners are most preferred?04:34
hardcoredon't wanna buy a bad one04:34
sloopytry different usb port for mouse? i have seen this issue with inet connection that goes through usb04:34
unopDecepticon, it sounds to be like you are using a virtual server - if that's the case, you won't be able to upgrade the kernel and other packages/modules that depend on the kernel version - so i guess that elemitates the possibility of upgrading to ubuntu+104:34
DasEikatie_:nero (free triel, works with win-key) is at nero HP, or terminal : sudo apt-get install k3b04:34
Decepticonunop im not on a vps04:34
hardcorei don't have a mouse, my laptop has a direction stick04:34
Nallepphuzion: look into the command option for your authorized_keys file (read man authorized_keys)04:34
unopDecepticon, but you really should be talking to your service provider about upgrades, etc04:34
Decepticonhm ok04:35
hardcorewhich external dvd burners are most recommended? don't wanna buy a bad one04:35
RyanPriorathleone: System -> Preferences -> Main Menu04:35
unopDecepticon, if you are not on a VPS - the chroot thing wouldn't make sense04:35

katie_DasEi: after i load k3b i can use it to burn the music04:35
vgambitis there any way to make it so that if I open 4 mp3 files one after the other, each newly opened file will be opened in the previous instance of the media player?04:35
hardcorei tried out gOS today, compiz wasn't on it so it sucked04:35
KoN8392RyanPrior: I am there. However i cant figure out what type of theme to grab04:36
DasEikatie_:yup, install it and run from the apps menu04:36
vgambitbecause right now, if I open 4 files, they'll have 4 different instances of the same media player running at the same time, and I'll then have to manually close the other programs04:36

smokewonah true, ok ill try that now, thx for advice DasEi04:42
Zirodayhardcore: intrepid talk in #ubuntu+1 please04:42
RyanPriorhardcore: That's how betas work - stuff breaks, and is fixed, frequently. Unless you're willing to deal with constant breakage, alphas and betas are not for you - and thus, it is a bad idea to install one.04:42

gluonmanI tried to ask this question in #vbox, but almost no one ever talks on that channel (at least when I'm there). So I'll ask again here: I install virtualbox and I'm having trouble install Windows XP on my .vdi. The installation will begin, but halfway through Vbox will restart the installation from a prior point. It cannot finish installing, it always restarts to the same point every time. What's wrong?06:09

mr_bmhI did not understand why this partition could not mount06:09

octoberdangluonman: At that point I believe stuff has been installed, enough to be bootable06:14
gluonmanoctoberdan, if I start the .vdi, it takes me to the installation.06:14
_2DasEi because extended partitions don't have file systems   you don't format them.06:15

unop_2, on most unices - deleting the password from an account is as good as disabling the account, because most systems are set to not allow a user to log on with a blank password (for obvious security reasons) - and it he can't log on, it makes no sense for the system to be usable anyhow - which probably explains why su (and perhaps sudo too) behave like this for you07:20
Daft_Punkbuy it, use it, break it, fix it, trash it, change it, melt, upgrade it07:21
jim_p_busyZorbaTHut: why change the mac address?07:21
unop_2, why don't you just set a password and use sudo instead - it can be configured not to prompt for a password - if dealing with passwords is such an issue for you07:21
Cheekyjim_p_busy: well iam just learning SQL right now .. and MYSQL and soon ill start to make a project of som sort after i learn .. mind you i got this machie buy driving around the university dumpster07:21
ZorbaTHutjim, because I'm making a series of VMs based off the same preconfigured instance, and identical mac addresses = bad07:22

linuxhelp-Supporeverybody should use a seperated partition for /home07:46
vampirefrogjim_p_busy: as u wish. the --help line just displays usage anyway07:46
Agent_bobbmoc if you can resize the ntfs partition and make sufficient free space to contain all your linux system you can then migrate it to the new partition (takes a little work but imo worth it)   and then windows is free to remain or be removed at your discression.07:46
TenebrysI'm -guessing- that grub is still in the boot sector and has to be dug out somehow, just not sure where to poke or what program to use.07:46

Rufuswell, that could be a little difficult, you see I have about 1tb of data on this server, and not enough HDD space anywhere else07:59
TenebrysIt didn't appear to fix the problem with grub either, even though it -did- add XP to the selector screen that I get if I boot the computer with a Vista disk in the drive and wait for the "press any key to boot from CD" timer to run out.07:59
amanuhateball:i want to mount .iso file in my desktop how can i?07:59
airtonixamanu, gnome-mount08:00
litelhi how to destroy mi swap seem to don't work, and maybe make linux crash, what should i do ?08:00
amanu gnome-mount "after that any thing /text needed"08:00
TenebrysEssentially, I can't reach the Vista bootloader by trying to boot from my hard-drive, but I can reach the Vista bootloader if I've inserted the Vista CD..08:00
Agent_bobamanu mount -o loop file.iso /some/where08:00
airtonixamanu, http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu_Edgy#How_to_mount.2Funmount_Image_.28ISO.29_files_without_burning08:00
airtonixamanu, although its a page for edgey the commands are still the same08:01
amanuAgent_bob:ok i will try now08:01
airtonixamanu, you can discover how to use partcular commands with $ man command08:01
TenebrysIf I try to boot straight from my hard-drive, it says "grub loading... error 17" and I can't get through.08:01
airtonixamanu, http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu_Edgy#How_to_mount.2Funmount_Image_.28ISO.29_files_without_burning08:02
airtonixamanu, follow that...three steps required08:02
TenebrysIt's done this ever since I replaced my Ubuntu partition with Windows Vista.08:02
brandonmpaceTenebrys: did you try the repair install?08:02
xyeanyone know why my mouse won't work when i'm trying install ubuntu with a dual boot? i get stuck at step 4 or wahtever trying to set the partition space08:02
airtonixamanu, or you can take the easy way out and use the gui : gnome-mount08:02
TenebrysYou mean the startup repair?08:02
TenebrysI did.  It said no problems found.08:02
brandonmpaceTenebrys: hmm08:02
TenebrysI also tried bootsect.exe.08:02
amanuairtonix  gui : gnome-mount how to get this08:03
Agent_bobTenebrys partition numbers changed ?08:03
airtonixamanu, sudo apt-get install gnome-mount08:03
amanuya im installing  sudo apt-get install gnome-mount08:03
airtonixamanu, is if not called gnome-mount you can use : apt-cache search iso | grep mount08:03
brandonmpaceTenebrys: that error usually means that it can´t find the partition that the boot files are on. (your linux partition)  which you deleted, correct?08:03
amanui installed08:03
TenebrysYeah.  But it also means that grub is still buried somewhere, and I need to go in with a scalpel and pick it out, and replace it with whatever's supposed to be there instead.08:04
amanudoes this statement mean " 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 115 not upgraded." its not installed08:04
brandonmpaceTenebrys: you need to find a way to install the vista bootloader to the mbr.  grub is in your mbr08:04
RufusI'm trying recovery mode08:04
Agent_bobTenebrys MBR08:04
airtonixamanu, for the record, you havent installed any special drivers or anything...al you have installed is a frontend gui that holds your hand when mounting / unmounting  iso images08:04
airtonixamanu, that statement means you already have gnome-mount installed08:05
amanuok then what to do?08:05
airtonixamanu, look in your application menu08:05
Rufusis there any way of undoing an upgrade from 6 to 8?08:05
Agent_bobRufus heh i wish.08:05
brandonmpaceme too08:05
RufusI'm going to kill my self if I can't get this working08:06
amanuairtonix: in applications-> where to get08:06
TenebrysSo essentially Microsoft should (hopefully) have a program for rebuilding the MBR?08:06
SkywaIkerDoes ubuntu support cluster computing ?08:07
Agent_bobRufus linux is developed on the itialian racing theory.   "what is behind you is not important"08:07
brandonmpaceRufus: if you have a smaller empty hard disk you can put that in there and install to it while also using the partitions off of the terabyte drive for the data that´s already there08:07
airtonixamanu, sorry my bad...that prog doesnt put a option in your menus08:07
amanuairtonix:i cant get what u said08:07
brandonmpaceTenebrys: yes google it.  maybe something like fixmbr i believe08:08
Agent_bobSkywaIker linux is a clustering os yes08:08
airtonixamanu, i mean : the program you just installed does not create menu entry08:08
airtonixamanu, you actually want  sudo apt-get install gmountiso08:08
airtonix!gmountiso| amanu08:08
amanuok can i try this sudo apt-get install gmountiso08:08
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about gmountiso08:08
Rufuswhat does this mean? "ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/5f53ea6d-f1a1-42e9-837f-d6f49433095c does not exist. Dropping to a shell!"08:08
amanuya its getting installed08:08
brandonmpaceit can´t find the disk08:09
TenebrysAlright, I'll have a look.  Thanks!08:09
Rufusbut the disk is there08:09
airtonixamanu, gmountiso will be in applications -> system tools08:09
Rufusit was all working 10 minutes ago08:09
amanuyes i opened it08:09
Agent_bobRufus means the initramfs can't find a filesystem with that UUID08:09
RufusAgnent_bob: and how do I fix that?08:09
brandonmpaceRufus: for future reference, when upgrading it is always safer to back up data and do a clean install08:10
amanuhere its asking to things08:10
Agent_bobRufus rebuild the initramfs.img file ...08:10
Stofferhow do I edit gru to change my default boot partition?08:10
fenerli7 I want to use Linux (Ubuntu being my choice of distro for now) however after experimenting, I've noticed that I need NVIDIA 177.xx drivers or put up with terrible 2D performance (or use nv and have no 3D). Should I use the alpha Intrepid or Hardy and manually install the newer driver?08:10
Rufushow bob>08:10
airtonixamanu, might want to save this webpage to your home folder for future reference: http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Hardy08:10
amanuwhat does mount point mean?08:10
amanuok i will08:10
Rufusit's on a raid 1 array, does that make a difference? it's a hardware raid card08:10
airtonixamanu, a mount point is where the devie will be exposed for access to you...its almost always a folder you create08:11
amanuwhat does mount point mean?08:11
fenerli7amanu: mount point is the directory you want the partition to store the contents of08:11
Agent_bobRufus well "i would," finsih the boot process, by manually mounting the root fs   and exiting the initramfs busybox shell....  you will probably boot a live cd and work on it in a chrooted environment08:11
airtonixfenerli7, 'store' is the proper description08:11

jim_p_busyBeBoo: how?08:14
airtonixamanu, the files you download and install via apt-get/synaptics/add-remove are all cached in the /var/cache/apt/archive folder08:14
RufusI just upgraded from 6 to 8 and now my server doesn' tboot08:14
Brainyiscool_That's the output of fdisk and gpart08:14
Brainyiscool_I just don't know how to fix it08:14

brandonmpacefenerli7: I would say to compile it yourself from nvidia´s website08:15
FedererRogerhow to install "launchy" !!!!  Help!!08:15

airtonixamanu, FedererRoger isnt launchy a win32 app?08:16
amanucan i get these to any linux working machine and just install it?08:16
airtonixFedererRoger i think you may want to look at gnome-do08:16
BeBoojim_p_busy: i was following this howto and it said to set my horizSync to 30-60 and my vertRefresh to 47 or something. i set the horizSync to 28-33 and the vertRefresh to 42-72 and it worked!08:16
airtonixamanu, only ubuntu machines08:16
FedererRogerairtonix: whats that08:16
tenXanyone ever ran into an error iterating ide devices on ubuntu server 8.04.1 using sata drives preventing the final shutdown?08:16

FedererRogerairtonix: nothing... cant find  i typed...  apt-get install launchy08:17
BeBoonevermind, there it goes08:18
airtonixFedererRoger, your not using sudo which is why apt-get wont work for you08:18
airtonixFedererRoger, sudo apt-cache search conky gnome-do08:18
airtonixFedererRoger, sudo apt-get install gnome-do08:18
Agent_bobairtonix sudo not needed for apt-cache08:18
fenerli7FedererRoger: if you want Launchy, download this:08:18
FedererRogeri also typed:   yum install launchy08:18
Agent_bobairtonix bad habbit to use sudo on things that don't need it.08:19
airtonixFedererRoger, yum doesnt apply on debian based systems08:19
airtonixAgent_bob,  and guess what command i would likley be using next?08:19
fenerli7FedererRoger: launchy isn't in Ubuntu repos, you have to download the package (see link above)08:19
FedererRogerairtonix: Aint Ubuntu based on REDHAT ?08:19

tenXJaseX: not a native speaker. but i live, get up, go to sleep with 16 colors and bash08:37
airtonixCheeky, should be fine08:37
Cheekybrandonmpace: nice iam about toinstall it .. is it staright forwar set up ?08:37
=== jim_p_busy is now known as jim_p
JaseX@ tenX I hear you there, I feel more comfortable half the time with CLI programs anyways.08:37
FedererRogerjim_p_busy: yeah, but no a bare install , i want to boot the OS  from an USB stick, but i want to it with ubuntu08:38
airtonixamanu, webcams and wifi cards are two things that are not so well covered in ubuntu yet..08:38
brandonmpaceCheeky: I have not used the server but if it is anything like the desktop version yes08:38
jim_pFedererRoger: there are instructions on pendrivelinux.org for this08:38
JaseXamanu: what laptop?08:38
Cheekybrandonmpace: iam about to fin out i guess ; i got this machine .. in a dumpster lool08:38
user_any help on how I can make my ubtuntu client to run server applications?08:38
FedererRogerpendrivelinux.org  << doesnt work08:38
tenXuser_: just install them??08:39
brandonmpaceCheeky: lol I have an 8086 in my garage08:39
ompaulCheeky, it is very simple from the menu, however you have been advised elsewhere already that a complex database will cripple that box and make it really slow and unresponsive you choose the lamp options from the install menu and then install openssh-server and have fun but I am warning you a lack of speed will be frustrating08:39
JaseXamanu: try learning what your laptop has for a camera, and then see what you have to install to maybe get it to work.08:39
JaseXI know most hp Pavilion laptops built in cams work fine out of box with Cheese08:39
user_through the terminal?08:39
brandonmpaceCheeky: that would be a good learning box, the one you got08:39
JaseXand with pidgin...08:39
JaseXNot sure with your laptop though.08:39
amanuJaseX:how and from where can i learn it08:39
FAJbrandonmpace: back from last night ;)  still am having issues08:40
brandonmpaceJaseX: i wasn´t aware pidgin supported webcams... you MUST mean Amsn08:40
jim_pFedererRoger: its pendrivelinux.com , sorry08:40
JaseXamanu: my friend the ubuntuforums.org have lots of posts pertaining on how to find all this out... i'm not sure on the command as to find out a webcam.08:40
JaseXYou're right brandonmpace08:40
JaseXIt's 4 AM here.08:40
ubottuInstructions for using webcams with Ubuntu can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Webcam - Supported cams: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportComponentsMultimediaWebCameras08:40
JaseXI apologize.08:40
brandonmpacelol no biggie08:40
brandonmpacejust makin sure08:41
brandonmpacei got excited for a sec lol08:41
airtonixJaseX, amanu since most webcams are connected to the main system via a usb bus...you could start with : lsusb...or lspci to at least determine if ubuntu can see your device08:41
tenXah hey as i appear to have joined this chan for interest two questions having bothered me some time ago i'd like to address to you ubuntu experts in here: first issue - what switch will prevent apt-get/aptitude updates from kernel or /boot/grub/menu.lst upgrades?08:41
amanuok i will check it now08:41
tenXnot safe-upgrade08:42
FedererRogerjim_p:  thanks!08:42
jim_pFedererRoger: you are welcome08:42
airtonixamanu, have a look through the ubuntu forums in the tutorials and tips section for any webcam threads that might be there08:42
FedererRogerjim_p:  thanks! i want to do DAMN SMALL LINUX but with UBUNTU... DSL sucks08:42
Cheekyompaul: iam screwed... the cd rom was deteted but wont let me install it coz the cd rom .. is slow .. how can i install it through a netwrok .. is that even possbible ?08:43
JaseXFedererRoger: I would wait for fluxbuntu 8.10 to be made then.08:43
unoptenX, if i remember right, kernel upgrades are not automatic -- and even if you install a new kernel you'll be warned08:43
JaseXand just dd that onto a thumbdrive.08:43
ompaulCheeky, got a usb port on the box and will it support booting from usb08:43
brandonmpace!webcam | amanu08:43
ubottuamanu: Instructions for using webcams with Ubuntu can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Webcam - Supported cams: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportComponentsMultimediaWebCameras08:43
JaseXAnyways ubuntu 8.10 will support installing to a usb thumbdrive from within ubuntu itself.08:43
FedererRogerJaseX: why flubuntu?? why not use ubuntu?08:44
JaseXFluxbuntu is faster being based off the fluxbox wm rather than the gnome de08:44
Cheekyompaul: no .. the problem, is that i have a usb dvd rom .. and it didnt give the opton to book from usb cd rom ..08:44
tenXunop: my systems dont have auto updates, i simply wonder if there is some config file switch telling apt to leave out kernel updates08:44
unopJaseX, you can install fluxbox on ubuntu and switch desktops - to pretty much the same effect08:44
brandonmpace!install | Cheeky08:44
ubottuCheeky: 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 !automate08:44
Cheekyompaul: this is my machine with 128 ram thou http://www.amazon.com/Dell-Dimension-Desktop-266-MHz-Pentium/dp/B00005UJYR08:44
ompaulCheeky, well then maybe you will do what else I suggested - xen virtual box quemu on your main desktop08:44
FedererRogerJaseX: but i want Gnome and all full desktop, into my 128 GB USB stick08:45
amanuhere is output for my lspci,lsusb commands can any one find my type of web cam here http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/48815/08:45
JaseXif you're going for a thumb drive usable distro, capable of running on practically ANY pc FedererRoger I'd recommend at least replacing gnome with Fluxbox or LXDE08:45
JaseX128 GB usb?08:45
JaseXYou mean 128 MB08:45
JaseXThe highest pen drive I own... is 8gb, the highest one I know of is 16 gb08:45
FedererRogerJaseX: why not Gnome? 128 gb08:45
brandonmpaceJaseX: there is a 32 GB now08:45
JaseXthere is no 128 gb usb stick08:45
=== Initial_2 is now known as Initial_M
JaseXbrandonmpace: so they released it finally?08:46
JaseXHave to grab one.08:46
unoptenX, by automatic i mean - newer kernels are not pulled in via  apt-get/aptitude upgrade - you have to explicitly install the newer kernels to get them.08:46
brandonmpacewww.newegg.com has them08:46
JaseXI'm waiting for a 32gig sdhc card to come in the mail08:46
JaseXah newegg.com = friend :D08:46
FedererRogerJaseX: the space is irrelevant, i want FULL DESKTOP , with GNOME and all the crap + UBUNTU in my USB stick08:46
JaseXFedererRoger: 128 mb is not enough.08:46
DebolazI wouldn't mind something more lean than stock ubuntu, but the problem has been intergration with other systems, like SMB shares. Only (k)ubuntu seems to support such things in a simple way.08:46
JaseXThe space is relevant sir @ FedererRoger08:46
Massiv0rCan anyone confirm me that Lineage2 (Interlude Chronicle) isn't able to run @ wine even if the server has no gameguard?08:46
FedererRogerFedererRoger: 128 GIGAbytes08:46
brandonmpaceFedererRoger: that will take at least a 4 gig, possible a 2 gig08:47
JaseXI have issues running it from a 2 gigabyte thumbdrive08:47
tenXunop: you mean choosing dist-upgrade rather to upgrade or safe-upgrade?08:47
JaseXFedererRoger:  there's no such thing as 128 Gigabyte thumbdrive. is what i'm telling you.08:47
Cheekybrandonmpace: wow .. ojk .. which on is the easies..08:47
brandonmpaceCheeky: ?08:47
Cheekyompaul: i wanan try the new box .. heeheh .. how could i do this ?08:47
FedererRogerJaseX: thats irrelevant, i have a 128 GIGAs thumb , my question is if there is any limitation to Put a FULL ubuntu desktop in it?08:48
JaseXFedererRoger: yes because you have no 128 gigabyte thumbdrive sir.08:48
ompaulCheeky, move your cd / dvd to it temporarily08:48
JaseXYou have a 128 megabyte thumbdrive.08:48
JaseXIT IS VERY Relevant my dear friend.08:48
brandonmpacefull ubuntu desktop needs 4 gigs for stability and full install08:48
Cheekyompaul: can i pm you ?08:48
FedererRogerJaseX: forget about the space, i have there 50gb of information already, and i want to install UBUNTU08:49
ompaulCheeky, go on08:49
JaseXbrandonmpace: not necessarily... if you chop out crap like openoffice and evolution and the likes.08:49
JaseXrelevant sir.08:49
unoptenX, dist-upgrade is no longer recommended so you shouldn't be using it - use do-release-upgrade instead - but if you dist-upgraded (by any means) a newer kernel is installed - which makes sense - packages in newer versions of ubuntu rely on newer versions of the kernel08:49
JaseXWhy won't you listen.08:49
JaseXYOU cannot forget about the space.08:49
Massiv0rCan anyone confirm me that Lineage2 (Interlude Chronicle) isn't able to run @ wine even if the server has no gameguard?08:49
JaseXThe space is the crucial basis.08:49
JaseXI'd be damned if you could efficiently run a xubuntu install from 128mb08:50
brandonmpaceJaseX: I think we should drop  the space issue.   FedererRoger you need 4 gigabytes of free space on the drive as long as you  have a decent amount of ram08:50
JaseXhere's your answer FedererRoger, it's impossible to do what you are trying to do. give up.08:50
FAJhi can anyone help me with my wifi?  i followed these directions:  http://madwifi.org/wiki/UserDocs/FirstTimeHowTo to get the -ng madwifi drivers.. but it doesn't show up in my iwconfig. any help please, i am desparate08:50
tenXunop: thanks for that hint as i will have to fight with myself changing long time behaviour :/08:50
JaseXFedererRoger: forget DSL, try Puppy Linux08:50
brandonmpacepuppy requires slightly more than 128 mb unless you just copy the cd files08:51
FedererRogerI Have 128 gigabytes, so its not a problem for me08:51
brandonmpaceFAJ: what is the wireless chipset?08:51
