uaiuii am newbie, got a problem..I fucked up the wifi drivers and related files trying to do an upgrade. now my iwconfig doesnt  even see the card.00:00
uaiuiI would like to know how i can recover from the installation cd00:00
ThersiTI need to upgrade HPLIP past the version that is offered by synaptic, do i need to uninstall the old one with synaptic first?00:01

CorbinFoxi want to use the version of pidgin that comes with 7.10, is there a way to do that? 8.04's version isnt to my liking00:02
DasE1sakuramboo: modprobe  emu10k100:02
bobertdosTiTsAnDaSS: Everything should be available in the repos. Use Synaptic to graphically install the packages.00:02
dr_willisCorbinFox,  its possible that the older pidgin may not work with some of the chat systems (aol/aim/msn) due to them constantly changing things.00:02
noglorpI'm having trouble getting nvidia drivers to work00:03
DasE1sakuramboo: sudo gedit /etc/modules00:03

bobertdosCorbinFox: and it isn't extraordinarily difficult to compile the new Pidgin from source.00:03
DasE1sakuramboo: at the end of modules, new line :  emu10k100:03
arttiŠØŠ no nice keyb0ard00:03
fwaokdamy pidgin isn't working how do i fix it? I click on the icon in my panel and it opens a window bar at the bottom of my screen and then closes after about 7 seconds00:03

uaiuihi there i got a problem with ubuntu 8.0400:04
noglorpdoes Envy still exist for installing nvidia drivers?00:04
bobertdos!find gtk+00:04
ubottuFound: displayconfig-gtk, gftp-gtk, gnome-icon-theme-gartoon, gtk-doc-tools, gtk-im-libthai (and 418 others)00:04
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 risk00:04
DasE1sakuramboo: save n close modules, then : sudo-apt get update && sudo apt-get upgrade00:04
_bjordandoes anyone know how one might:00:04
dr_willisbobertdos,  if you installed the normal ubuntu - gtk should been installed  with it..00:04
_bjordan(1) take a group of photos with both date created and EXIF metadata00:04
_bjordan(2) starting with one photo/time, create a slideshow/video/gif animation/flash animation that changes photos at the times they are taken?00:04
_bjordan(3, optional) add the audio of this event to it00:05
sakurambooDasE1, nothing was upgraded00:05
noglorpI cant find envy in apt repository despite having enabled all the disabled repositories in my list00:05
bobertdosdr_willis: I'm not the one asking. The person who is asking is on Dapper :p00:05
_bjordanwithout having to do the second item manually00:05
DasE1sakuramboo: apps>multimedia>alsamixer00:05
DasE1sakuramboo: *gui00:05
TiTsAnDaSShmmm so let me get this straight is GTK the same as GTK+?00:05
noglorp'apt-cache search envy only turns' up one result and it is unrelated'00:05
dr_willisbobertdos,  Err.. gnome uses gtk, so im not sure what hes really asking/needing. :)00:05
DasE1sakuramboo: does your card show up in the mixer-gtk ?00:06
Rodzillaalguien sabe como configurar el sistema gráfico en ubuntu? en centos yo uso system-config-display, que comando se usa en ubuntu?00:06
dr_willisgtk is the name of the  'widget toolkit' i belive. Not sure how gtk and gtk+ differ. Perhaps one is a newer verison00:06
bobertdosdr_willis: I guess I don't either, unless........00:06
cyban_bjordan, Flash would be easiest depending on what its for00:06
DasE1sakuramboo: you're saved if you did the modules thing right, have fun...00:06
TiTsAnDaSStrying to install a checkbook program and one of the files as a requirement is GTK+00:07
bobertdosTiTsAnDaSS: What precisely are you needing? Are you looking to develop GTk apps or...????00:07
sakurambooDasE1, like i said, with alsa, i can hear sound, but not with pulse, now, with alsa, i can only use 1 device at a time and the front panel doesnt work00:07
_bjordancyban: there would be a way to script that sort of thing within flash?00:07
sakurambooerrr, not one device, one sound program00:07
_bjordancyban: to script with file creation dates?00:07
Rodzillasome body know how to setup xserver? on centos I use system-config-display... What command can I use on ubuntu'00:07
DasE1sakuramboo: try a reboot: sudo reboot00:07
cyban_bjordan, ya you can do some fairly advanced scripting in Flash - its has things like get file properties etc00:07

milostrifedanopia, i've tried that but it says cant find repo?00:12
tonibuntui have installed ubuntu 6.06 on my friends machine that crashed it's windows.  i tryed and tried to install hardy, but it would never get past the login screen, where it would go all black and not progress.  so i'm kind of nervous now about upgrading through the update manager, cause i don't know if the newer version has some incompatibility with his dell dimension 2400.  any thoughts?  oh,...00:12
tonibuntu...and question; i don't see 'software sources' in his menu, just 'software properties' which doesn't seem to be the same thing.00:12
tenseitripitakit: where would I find that?00:12
tripitakittensei: a cd burning app00:12
jennifercan somebody tell me what to do to ripristinate the originarl drivers from the cd?00:12
danopiamilostrife, can you get anytihng else?00:12
DasE1tensei: sudo apt-get install k3b00:12
NickReadnoglorp: Unsure if envy is in the Gutsy repo.  You can get the Deb straight from the envy website though: http://albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html00:12
danopiamilostrife, try sudo apt-get update00:12
tripitakittensei: under main menu multimedia00:12
tenseiDase1: what the difference between that and brasero?00:12
cybanjennifer, have you uninstalled the drivers you tried to update to?00:12

ubottutensei, please see my private message00:13
dr_willisuse envyng if everything else fails. :)00:13
cybanuninstall those, then reboot, then sudo apt-get update/upgrade00:13
jenniferthe new drivers just overwrite something and the kernel i think00:13
NickReaddr_willis: yes - but envyng is only for Hardy00:13
sp0k34_what you talkin bout willis00:13
dr_willisI wouldent trust envy for any earlier releases.. i would use the nvidia.run stuff00:13
danopiamilostrife, idk, synaptic uses apt afaik00:13
jenniferbecause i cannot see the card anymore00:13
tripitakittensei: i normalyy use braseero dont know k3b00:13

milostrifedanopia,  okies i'll have a look in the forums and see if there's anything there00:14
NickReaddr_willis: Simply use the restricted drivers manager - problem solved ;)00:14
cybanat least if ya uninstall you can then install, but trying to install drivers over drivers is a pain00:14
jenniferi remember they ask me to comment out something in some file and i said yes00:14
Newuser1111VMware Server 1.0.6 build-91891 still is not working,00:14

HollywoodJumperDasE1 what is sudo apt00:36
ubottusudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome), or !kdesu (KDE)00:36
sakuramboo whatever, im ready to throw this computer out the window, ill work on this later, i need this recording done yesterday :/00:36
ubottuAPT is the Advanced Package Tool, which together with dpkg forms the basic Ubuntu package management toolkit. Short apt-get manual: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptGetHowto - Also see !Synaptic (Gnome) or !Adept (KDE)00:36
DasE1sakuramboo: nah, still got 20min ?00:36
sakurambooim getting nothing with audigy now00:37
candiveemorris, not an option?00:37
HollywoodJumperDasE1 what are superuser privileges00:37
sakurambooDasE1, and sadly, i dont, i need this recording in an hour and its gonna take me 30 or so minutes to get it all00:37
laananerUSUL: apparently there was a proprietary driver not enabled. enabling that and rebooting brings back my desktop window title bars and gnome-terminal now displays text. thanks again00:37

unopjustin_, hmm, i don't think hubs are either - they just propagate the electric signal from the port they are connected on. So it's essentially down to the controller.00:54
DasE1 ponzerelli:go ahead00:54

DasE1HollywoodJumper: you're funny, mom01:20
HollywoodJumperDasE1 the sudo apt -get ktorrent01:21
comicinkerI've ccsm installed...01:21
DasE1HollywoodJumper: eerm, you said you dld torrents ? did you mean apt-packages (update/grade) ?01:22
jribcomicinker: and is there no option there for what you want?01:22
fenerli7details: ifconfig only shows "lo", not eth0 or anything for the LAN connection01:22
comicinkerbut ccsm offers me about 50 option buttons to click. where is this setting hidden?01:22
jribcomicinker: try #compiz-fusion, I don't know exactly where it is01:23
JaseXcomicinker: what option are you looking for?01:23
fenerli7comicinker: general options > desktop size01:23
riyonukOh god, if I min/max real fast, I see black :O01:23
riyonukWhat's happening01:23
_bjordanhow would I wget all ".zip" files a-href-linked to on one webpage?01:23

HollywoodJumperDasE1 sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade01:24
_bjordanwget -r -A ".zip" http://www.website.com/websiteurl.html did not work01:24
_bjordanit discarded the websiteurl.html because it was not .zip01:24

pirofwilQUESTION: Im running current version 8.04 and for some reason my amd turion 64 X2 processor laptop is only running on one processor is there a fix? I dont want to change to 64 bit due to package availability compatibility issues, unless i have to. ANYONE know?01:25
cy21BACK with a small problem... i need a way to convert my second partition to ex3 or something witouth completely wiping out my data...anyone?01:25
HollywoodJumperDasE1 i am new to ubuntu01:25
pirofwilCY21, im having the same issue no help?01:26
DasE1HollywoodJumper: a torrent is a peer to peer app, same in win01:26
HollywoodJumperDasE1 yes01:27
JaseX... you can't just convert a partition cy2101:27
geniicy21: What filesystem is currently on it?01:27
cy21JaseX, how?01:27
JaseXback up the data, and then reformat the partition, and re-copy the data.01:27
HollywoodJumperDasE1 i ran sudo apt-get install ktorrent01:27
cy21genii, ntfs01:27
JaseXcy21 that is highly improbably.01:27
cy21JaseX, i was trying to avoid that01:27
valrosif there is one, what is the SIW equivalent in linux, anyone know of a good one, particularly on cpu01:27
JaseXYou cannot just change a partition filesystem cy2101:28
JaseXThat's like trying to convert a female into a true male.01:28
DasE1HollywoodJumper:open a browser, google speedtest, choose one, check it01:28
cy21JaseX, i don't have an operating system on it... it should be ok01:28
HollywoodJumperDasE1 ok01:28
geniicy21: Then JaseX is right. Need to offload the files first someplace before you can change the fs since you'll need to change partition type to linux and then format to ext3 or so. Then to copy the files back01:28
JaseX... Not exactly, you will have to lose all data on it, to change  afilesystem requires formatting it.01:28
JaseXcy21 what you want to do cannot be done... by any operating system.01:29
cy21ok... thanks guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!01:29
JaseXMaybe in ten years... but not in these days.01:29

pirofwilQUESTION: Im running current version 8.04 and for some reason my amd turion 64 X2 processor laptop is only running on one processor is there a fix? I dont want to change to 64 bit due to package availability compatibility issues, unless i have to. ANYONE know?01:30
JaseXflash48: go to system>properties>appearance, and click the effects tab.01:30
JaseXpirofwil: I run 64 bit fine with no package issues, what programs do you use that suffer this incompatibility?01:31
geniipirofwil: The default kernel should be already SMP enabled. Did you install another kernel like -rt or such?01:31
flash48JaseX: already tried that and it says 'Desktop effects not enabled'01:31
JaseXthere should be three options flash4801:31
JaseXand check the second or bottom option... also make sure your card can do all that.01:31
pirofwiljasex I find that predefined package availibility is very poor for 64 bit01:32
flash48JaseX: I tried them all01:32
HollywoodJumperDasE1 4008 kbits downloaded in 44.785 sec 89kbps01:32

pirofwilhollywoodjumper, thats slow01:33

dal-homeHollywoodJumper, fair enough, probably the same thoughts that went through my head when I first heard of linux, kept thinking bs, that sounds way too good to be true, there's got to be a downside, and there is - it doesn't run windows software lol (well, runs some with emulators/translation layers like wine/dosbox/virtualbox)01:51

TitanusHello all!!  I am considering dumping XP for Ubuntu but I have an adaptec raid controller running my OS, will Ubuntu handle a raid controller for the desktop version?02:47
hondatrixterof course :)02:47
ubottuTips and tricks for RAID and LVM can be found on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RaidConfigurationHowto and http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO - For software RAID, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto02:47
TitanusSweet ty02:47
Newuser1111VMware is still having a problem.02:48
hondatrixterubuntu is still the shit02:48
h4xx0rNewuser1111: what sort of problem?02:48
stgoveYou have to configure RAID as you install ubuntu, you can't do it afterwards...02:48
Newuser1111Unable to change virtual machine power state: The process exited with an error:02:48
Newuser1111End of error message.02:48
danbh_intrepidRiyonuk: sorry mate, if you want me to pay attention, you will really have to use my name.  Try using tab completion for that.    BUT, if you do get it working, feel free to add an appendix to the wiki page describing how you got it working with zsnes, for others02:48
jamesishstgove: yes you can.02:48
Titanuswill it detect my raid on install or I have to do something?  Haven't red the tip for raid yet02:49
geniiNewuser1111: Is it giving an error about not being able to start vmmon ?02:49
jamesishstgove: but if you're looking to perform raid on the OS hard drive, you're right that you'd lose data.02:49
danbh_intrepidRiyonuk: no, don't "feel free", please do!02:49
Newuser1111Didn't see anything about vmmon.  What's vmmon?02:49
stgoveI couldn't figure out how to install RAID unles I did it as i installed it before putting any data on any drives...02:50
Riyonukwha :O02:50
RiyonukWhy is Xen better?02:50
RiyonukLooks complicated, I just want to run windows, sheesh >_>02:50
jamesishstgove: if you have a series of separate hard drives, and you are not including the drive your os is on, you use mdadm.02:50
edo32mbanyone have experience with USB mic's able to guide me to getting my Logitech A5370 to work?  :/02:50
stgovemdadm will expand a drive but not RAID it02:50
jamesishstgove: you can software RAID everything with mdadm at most levels.02:51
stgovebut I was putting the OS on the RAID drive, I did RAID1 as I installed ubuntu02:51
h4xx0rNewuser111: you're using vmware server i assume? is it installed from the download from the vmware website, or from the canonical repository?02:51
Newuser1111From vmware's site.02:52
jamesishstgove: Yeah, as I say, you'll lose your OS if you want to include the OS drive in the RAID. But if you're just making a data array, mdadm will do it to it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mdadm02:52
stgovei am a newbie, but had a linux guru with me here for my installs02:52
h4xx0rnewuser111: are you logging in to the vmware server console from the same machine that's running VMware server?02:52
stgoveI did RAID1 the two drives, as I installed ubuntu to it02:53
danbh_intrepidedo32mb: try gstreamer-properties02:53

gabmedhi all02:53

gabmedcan someone help me with php mail problem?02:53
TitanusI have 3 drives raid 0 by the controller, I'm just wondering if ubuntu will recognize it02:54

jamesishstgove: I regularly make 15TB RAID arrays, we've all got our experience. If you only have two drives, and one will contain the OS, you're right that it has to happen during install. The setups I usually use are ones in which I have a device with twenty hard drives in, and I'm making a RAID appliance. It's just a different way of doing things, and I wanted to make sure you were aware that there are after-install RAID options if your set02:55

ryan__How do you open Firefox in a new window via the terminal?02:57
Bob_DoleSo, I'm interning at a school. I'm tasked with setting up a few PC's(or a full computer lab) of older computers all running linux. Perhaps the most important thing I need is sandboxing, so nothing saved on the machines is there after a reboot.02:57
unopryan__, firefox -new-windows keyword02:57
unopryan__, err,  firefox -new-window keyword02:57
edo32mbdanbh_intrepid>>  Okay, i heard myself momentarily -, but now it a) won't let me hear myself again, b) tells me that my capture settings are invalid (for sound recorder), and all that fun stuff.02:57
jamesishBob_Dole: you could run straight from a live CD.02:57
danbh_intrepidedo32mb: all in gstreamer-properties?02:58
Bob_Dole128MB of RAM at best02:58
IntuitiveNippleBob_Dole: Use a tmpfs for /home :)02:58
stgoveIf you want to RAID5 those 36 gig drives, get yourself a small HD 910) megs, one of two the install the OS and RAID5 the 36 gig drives02:58
edo32mba) in gstreamer-properties.  b) when i try to open the sound-recorder app02:58
stgoveunless you want the OS on those drives too02:58
Newuser1111What's wrong? (/usr/bin/vmware-cmd: Could not connect to VM /home/djk/VM/VMware/PC-BSD/PC-BSD.vmx)02:58
RiyonukWhat program is this? The dock thingi? http://hellsdark.deviantart.com/art/24-03-08-Back-to-stripes-8087484702:58
Bob_DoleAnd I'm somewhat expected to have a naming scheme and name them all something different following that scheme on the network.02:58
ryan__unop: ok but I want to open Firefox to a specific webiste. For example, yahoo.com02:59
danbh_intrepidedo32mb: sounds lika bug  : (02:59
stgoveTake care all, have a good night!02:59
unopryan__, right, so your keyword here is  yahoo.com02:59
ganymedehi, i can't seem to find out which texlive package contains the tikz package. i keep getting a tikz,sty not found error when i try to compile my document with pdflatex, at the line where i do \usepackage{tikz}02:59
stgoveThanks everyone!02:59
TitanusAt this point I'm just wondering if ubuntu will recognize it as a hard drive or not02:59
h4xx0rnewuser1111: hmm that's odd... has it worked before? or is this fresh from installation?03:00
Titanusgnight stgove03:00
edo32mbdanbh_intrepid>>  a bug in what, exactly?  the alsa drivers, and whatnot?  I'm using the alsa-*-1.0.18rc303:00
Newuser1111It hasn't worked before.03:00
ryan__unop: that does not work03:00
jamesishTitanus: sometimes it'll recognise the hardware RAID, sometimes not. If it doesn't, you can still let a hardware RAID controller manage the RAID and then use the logical volume manager to present the drives as a single file system.03:00
unopryan__, firefox -new-window yahoo.com03:01
jamesishTitanus: the biggest problem is with onboard RAID on the motherboard; I heard LInus doesn't think it's stable enough, so he ensures it's intentionally ignored. Or some such nonsense.03:01
RiyonukNobody knows :(03:01
Titanusmy raid controller is not onboard, it is an adaptec 212003:01
^Devious^my exp with raid and linux never used to be that great - having to program the drivers and do a 5 line command just to get red hat 7 to see the drive was a pain03:01
jamesishRiyonuk: I've used that before, I just can't remember the name. I found it via the openbox website, though. They have a list of various dock-type applications that are compatible available. Check 'em out.03:02
^Devious^now with ubuntu its much better03:02
Riyonukor whatever03:02
unopRichiH, might be AWN03:02
jamesishTitanus: just try it out! unless there's real data at stake.03:02
^Devious^and howdy all03:02
ryan__unop: thank you soooo much.03:02
unopRiyonuk, sorry.. that was for you  <unop> RichiH, might be AWN03:02
IntuitiveNippleI've never had issues with RAID on Linux, whether dmraid (aka FakeRAID), mdraid,, mdadm or hardware03:02
TitanusI have the data backed up so it's all good.  I'll have to try it and see if it works03:03
Newuser1111It has not worked before, I have not gotten anything to run on VMware yet(in Ubuntu)03:03
edo32mbdanbh_intrepid>>  okay, somehow my mic volume was reset suddenly. raise the volume and i hear myself in gstreamer-properties03:03
danbh_intrepidedo32mb: well, I think its a bug in whatever driver you are selecting in gstreamer-properties.  So, if its messing up when you select alsa, then its alsa.  But, Im not too sure.  Im confused on sound/pulseaudio/alsa in general03:03
IntuitiveNippleTitanus: This might give you some insights: http://tjworld.net/wiki/Linux/Ubuntu/HardyRAID5EncryptedLVM03:04

aLeSD_so ... there is no possibility to copy the dirs and start simply evolution ?03:15
jamesishgabmed: What's changed, then? If things work from the command line, it's something about your app or php itself.03:16
jamiejacksonkris: i like filelight for showing me where my big garbage files are03:16
ubottukris: The location of Trash has changed in 8.04, it is now located in ~/.local/share/Trash | Looking for the trash in previous versions: ~/.Trash03:16

krisjamiejackson: i have only installed ubuntu and patches that's all03:17
nxmehtahow do i print out the current cpu temperature and clock rate (if it's throttled)?03:17
DasEi aLeSD_: you can save files, but not the /etc, so the config03:17
Newuser1111Both user and root(sudo)03:17
gabmedjamesish: what could i check?03:17
jamesishgabmed: have you read any available logs to see whether the mail is being received by the mailer? Have you checked into what regularl updates have been pushed down since it broke?03:17
jamiejacksonkris, try the trash route first, then you could try "sudo apt-get install filelight"03:18
Alaskan_DragonHello guys, I have a wine question, I downloadeda simple program that reads text copyed to the clipboard for windows and use wine to run it, But it doesnt accept the clipboard data, can anyone help me?03:18
dmsupermanI can't get pulse to run as a daemon...if I run it as pulseaudio -vv it runs fine but if I do sudo /etc/init.d/pulseaudio start nothing happens (no error, but nothing can connect to the pulse server)03:18
h4xx0rnewuser1111: have you tried restarting vmware?03:18
jamesishdmsuperman: have you checked your logs for any error messages?03:18
gabmedjamesish: no, didnt check logs(what logs). It stopped a long time, i dont have the updates track03:18
Newuser1111I've restarted my computer, does that count?03:18
dmsupermanjamesish: dmesg has nothing related to it03:19
dmsupermanjamesish: Where else?03:19
jamesishgabmed: where does your mailer log to?03:19
DasEikris: also see man du03:19
krisi only wanted to know03:19
jamesishdmsuperman: try out /var/log/messages, that's normally a good place to start. Otherwise, check the other logs in /var/log/03:19

danbh_intrepidkris: whats going on??03:20
dmsupermanjamesish: Nothing03:20
jamiejacksonare you looking for a smaller distro, kris?03:20
dmsupermanjamesish: No pulse related entries03:20
jamiejacksondo you have a puny hd?03:20

h4xx0rmojo: ejabberd is pretty good though i mostly winged it03:20
danbh_intrepidkris: I can suggest a few commands... sudo apt-get clean for starters03:20
krisjamiejackon: maybe03:20
jamesishdmsuperman: have you read the pulse init.d script to see if there's anything in there you're meant to be setting up?03:21
Newuser1111If restarting the computer doesn't count, then how do I restart VMware?03:21
krisdanbh : i have no free space on hdd03:21
mojoh4xx0r:  that's the erlang one?  not too familiar with it but i can check it out03:21
danbh_intrepidkris: yes, but how did that happen?03:21
=== jetx is now known as jetscreamer
h4xx0rwell restarting the computer would've restarted vmware so we'll count it.. but in case you need it in the future... sudo /etc/init.d/vmware03:21
krisdanbh: I installed system and patches03:22
h4xx0rmojo: yeah03:22
gabmedjamesish: I'll take a look03:22
dmsupermanjamesish: I don't see anything, but I'm not the most informed shell scripter. Do you have hardy?03:22
krisand tried to add some other packges03:22
jamesishdmsuperman: as it happens, I do.03:22
jamesishdmsuperman: but I'm running server; it's pulseaudio, you say?03:22
krisbut I have very small hdd03:22
krisabout 3 gig03:22
danbh_intrepidkris: well, you should probably remove those packages, and run the command I gave ya.  Wo, thats small03:22
Newuser1111So Now I've restarted vmware.03:22
^Devious^Thats odd I just tried sudo apt/dpkg with yahoo mesenger and both wont work03:23
^Devious^even with dependencies03:23
dmsupermanjamesish: Aye03:23
^Devious^might have to purge it03:23
dmsupermanjamesish: It's odd, I get no errors, but it just doesn't start. It's not in my running process list, and nothing can connect to it03:23
ivani'm install 8.04.1 x64 inside vmware, with XFS inside LVM, and it seems to slow to a crawl during install, during the pre-"Select and install software" phase03:23
ivanis that likely to be an XFS issue?03:23
jamesishdmsuperman: pretty common for a misconfigured daemon. It takes time to get used to them.03:23
h4xx0rnewuser1111: is this a VM you created, or an appliance you downloaded03:23
Newuser1111Created it.03:24
ryan__When a website says run the Debian package, what does that mean?03:24
raul1when i run SaurBraten its just a black screen happends with nexiuz too anyone know why?03:24
h4xx0rivan: i use xfs inside lvm pretty much every time i install ubuntu, i've not had that issue03:25
tjayryan__: It means (or I think means) they offer a ".deb" file, which will automatically install the software you're needing.03:25
Xcercainit 6 is restart03:25
jamiejacksonkris, i think you might want a smaller distro. puppylinux comes to mind, or damn small linux, or one of those tiny distros. 3GB is puny03:25
Xcercais there a way to make a program run at start as su ?03:25
krisdanbh : yes it is03:25
ivanh4xx0r: thanks, i'll look at my broken vmware03:25
krisdanbh: i will try the command03:25
jamesishdmsuperman: have you tried pulseaudio -D ?03:25
=== funkyHat is now known as funkyHat|off
tjayryan__: Although there are other options, using ".deb" files is usally the prefered method of installing software on Ubuntu, because it is based on DEBiaian.03:25
Newuser1111Would it work any better if I downloaded it instead of making it?03:26
ryan__tjay: well when I click on the deb install file it just takes me to some unreadable code.  Please Help.03:26
dmsupermanjamesish: It's running now, but still not accepting connections03:26
h4xx0rnewuser1111: i doubt it03:26
jamesishdmsuperman: That's all the init.d script calls; read the options from man pulseaudio and also read the script again in start-stop-daemon line in pulseaudio to see how the maintainers are using it.03:27
dmsupermanjamesish: Hrm, nevermind it was just that app03:27
ryan__tjay: here is the link http://eion.robbmob.com/03:27
h4xx0rnewuser1111: what version of ubuntu are you on?03:27
jamesishdmsuperman: so you're doing a little better now?03:27
dmsupermanjamesish: Odd, pulseaudio -D works now =S03:28
dmsupermanjamesish: A little, at least I can get it running out of a terminal :P03:28
jamesishdmsuperman: awesome. Read the man page, some useful info in there.03:28

CentintiI need help03:30
jamesish!ask | Centinti03:30
ubottuCentinti: Please don't ask to ask a question, ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely answer. :-)03:30
billsteiryan__: Use the GDebi Package Installer program to install a deb03:30
sysdocHas anyone tried the 2.6.27 kernel on a laptop?03:30
dmsupermanjamesish: Hrm...it works with pulseaudio -D but not using the init.d script. It appears to be logging somewhere using log_begin_msg. Any idea what that is or where it's written to?03:30
CentintiI have a AMD Turion 64 x2 Mobile processor, do i get the 64 bit desktop version of ubuntu or the regular?03:30
ryan__billstei: ok so just do sudo apt-get GDebi03:30
tjayryan__: download the file to your desktop & install it from there.  Just double click it.03:31
h4xx0rnewuser1111: try this: sudo chown <username> /home/<username>/.vmware/preferences03:31
billsteiyou might already have it.  Look in the System Tools menu03:31
krisi tried command sudo apt-get clean and nothing happend03:31
h4xx0rwhere username is your username on the system... and then try starting your VM again03:31
=== Guest14027 is now known as Brucee
geniiCentinti: It's a 64 bit cpu. So either will work03:31
tritiumryan__, billstei: ubuntu-desktop depends on gdebi.  It should be installed.03:31
lucaxi need to change default desktop after installing kde on ubuntu... how can i do that?03:31
CentintiWhat would be better though?03:31
krishaxxor: are talking to me?03:31
jamesishdmsuperman: it's logging to syslog, which is the default.03:32
h4xx0rkris: no sorry that was for newuser111103:32
Newuser1111Ok, now what?03:32
billsteiryan__: also the System Tools menu might have the icon disabled so that you have it but you can't see the icon there03:32
geniiCentinti: 64 bit install should be fine03:32
sysdoclocax: at login select the session to log into03:32
CentintiOk, I just ordered the CDs03:32
krisi still don't know what to do03:32

IntuitiveNippleesac: If using pulseaudio, the pavucontrol can do that03:36
esacIntuitiveNipple: ill check that out, thanks03:36
ryan__billstei: if you do that command where should you download skyp4pidgin.deb to?  Or do you even have to do that?03:36
IntuitiveNippletjay: Yes, my r5u870 package :)03:36
dmsupermanjamesish: Weird. In the default case for that switch inside the script, it should print out a Usage string. I do init.d/pulseaudio blah and it doesn't do anything03:37

danbh_intrepidlucax: what is happening now?03:38
IntuitiveNippleesac: If you use vlc to play the file, that allows driving the volume way past 100%.03:38
IntuitiveNippletjay: sure... was that my DKMS package?03:39
lucaxdanbh_intrepid: after ive installed kde on ubuntu... every user i add takes kde as default desktop instead of gnome...03:39

DasEi zack___: so after choosing, grub couldn't find any boot, also ? sgd not succesful ? oo...06:00
yokobrCreating  ext3 file system  partition #1 of SCSI3 (0,0,0) (sda) has failed.06:00
CorbinFox^paradox^: maybe just use notepad and copy and paste the contents of the files back together, i did that once before and it wokred06:01
Mr_Fixitany reason why i can't connect to myself ssh?? firewall is open.. ssh: connect to host localhost port 22: Connection refused06:01
zack___dasei, that is correct06:01
DasEi zack___: where there any important file on the ubu-parti ?06:01
^paradox^im talking about splitting an iso or a video file though06:01
zack___dasei, well the only thing i was the MOST worried about is backed up on another computer. but i can get everything i had before back besides that one thing06:02
^paradox^not a document06:02
spasticteapotDoes anyone know where wget downloads to by default?06:02
chubsyokobr, are you running off of the livecd?06:03
zack___dasei, would there be anyway to get anything off the hard drive at this point?06:03
chubsspasticteapot, the directory that you're in06:03
yokobrchubs, yeap06:03
DasEizack___: I'm getting more and more the idea of an reinstallation, nope no acces , only raw06:04
DasEizack___: reboot machine, try another option from the cd menu(grub)06:04
zack___dasei, ok one second06:04
liza0_i have a system with an athlon 64 x2 procesor and 4GB of RAM. would getting the 64bit version of ubuntu offer more betetr performance than the 32 bit version06:04
^paradox^let me try again. if i used something like gtkfilesplitter to split say a large zip file would a windows user be able to reunite the pieces?06:05
zack___dasei, ok which options this time?06:05
mosheliza0,the 64 bit version will give you an increase in speed and can take advantage of the processor's capabilities06:05
DasEizack___: lang&help>englis> boot-tools>show partis06:05
zack___dasei, haha o wow it says natural 1  hda size 1 TB06:06
FAJhi i am trying to post to the ubuntu forums but it says i have insufficient privs...?06:06
zack___dasei, its 186gb or something really.06:07
DasEimoshe: liza0: its minimal faster, but important if you wanna adress huge amount of ram or really often recompile kernels, speed increasement is minimal06:07
^paradox^need some suggestions plz. need to be able to cut files and distribute the pieces to anyone any OS06:07
sumo_suzack___: you suffered a HD loss but the HD is healthy and the data is still phyisically there... thats what we agree on right?06:08
zack___sumo, ya06:08
sumo_suzack___: i suggest you google and try for 3 days to get back your data, or you accept its gone06:09
DasEizack___: go back to tools menu06:09
=== NADine is now known as wahyu
sumo_suyou never backed up your MBR did you?06:09
DasEizack___: try unhide parti06:09
grendal_prime^paradox^: what kind of files?06:10
wahyudaesi hlooo06:10
^paradox^grendal was hoping to cut any type06:11
zack___dasei, ok im at unhide partition help06:11
zack___sumo, i didnt back up the mbr06:11
^paradox^zip iso pdf06:11
chubsyokobr, no clue06:11
grendal_prime^paradox^: have you thought about using some p2p app like...bearshare, something like that...i mean...gtkgnutella and limewire can utilize those.06:11
DasEizack___: choose unhide >enter06:11
DasEianything shown ? what ?06:11
grendal_primejigdoo mayby..some sort of torrent?06:11
^paradox^well actually id send the pieces by email06:12
zack___dasei, it shows the 2 hard drives the top one is listed again as 1tb06:12
heyman12any good tutorials on installing GD?06:12
DasEizack___: did you encrypt the drive ?06:12
yokobrchubs, i think i have a little bit of a kind of a clue..06:12
zack___dasei, nope06:12
chubsyokobr, clue me in06:12
IntuitiveNipplezack___: I've been watching this exchange, and looked at the pastebin fdisk output... but not seen if you have said how many partitions were on the drive, and what file-systems they were?06:13
sumo_suzack___: windows showed me a 12TB partition when my mbr was sick:))06:13
yokobrchubs, i have a 160 gb hd, but it aways showed 149.. Now it shows 160, but on that instalation option for resizing, it asks to resize the 149 gb left..06:13
chubsyokobr, are you trying to save any partition?06:14
DasEizack___: so there are few more options (I don't believe in), like testdisk or trying to rebuild parti-table (use gparted, for exeample do sth with the small unallocated at the end of sda), but I think its....06:14
yokobrlooks like something erased someting vey important to my hd.06:14
zack___intuitive, the first hard drive was a standard ubunt install and the second is a standard xp pro install. the partitions on the first would have been the normal ones ubuntu makes when it installs06:14
DasEizack___: time to REINSTALL ubuntu06:14
zack___dasei, i think im on your side about this one06:14
chubsyokobr, hard drives are never the size advertised, base8 vs base10 calculations06:14
yokobrchubs, you said if im trying to keep an existing one?06:14
chubsyokobr, i was just asking06:14
chubsif you were06:14
Daft_Punkdoes firestarter have to be running in order for the firewall to be working?06:15
IntuitiveNipplezack___: so, is the issue you're dealing with the loss of the partition-table on sda?06:15
zack___dasei, thanks for you help i really appreciate it06:15
boozer_no Daft_Punk06:15
DasEizack___: if you're done with that, u can use grub to boot windows06:15
chullhttp://www.pastebin.ca/1203018      alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such file or directory06:15
sumo_suIntuitiveNipple: i think its sdb06:15
yokobrchubs, it seems to install m$ winblows well..06:15
Daft_Punkboozer_, so if i create a firewall and permissions with firestarter it saves it to the iptables and i dont have to start the program for it to function?06:15
frazrasI heard I could find out here: Why is XMMS not inthe hardy repos06:16
yokobrbut i cant create ext3 file system on it.06:16
MindVirusWhat's a good GUI for an alarm program?06:16
DasEi chull:sounddriver not installed06:16
zack___intuitive, nothing on the drive is recognized by the live cd its considered unallocated. i believe all the data is still ther ebut i dont think i can get anything off of it06:16
chubsyokobr, I don't think the ubuntu installer installs windows very well06:16
IntuitiveNipplesumo_su: the pastebin output shows sda partition table is corrupted; sdb is fine06:16
chubsyokobr, are you on it now?06:16
chubslivecd stylin'?06:16
IntuitiveNipplezack___: OK... do you know how the MBR was lost? did something reformat or is it random corruption?06:16
yokobrchubs, im on xubuntu live cd... but ive tryied a windows xp cd and it installed..06:16
boozer_try "iptables -L " to see the list of rules and policies before and after you run the firewall06:17
yokobrthen i tryed xubuntu again, but no luck.06:17
zack___intuitive, i reformatted my secondary harddrive and reinstalled xp onto it06:17
boozer_Daft_Punk    try "iptables -L " to see the list of rules and policies before and after you run the firewall06:17
chubsyokobr, but you are on it right now? as in you could pastebin the output of mount06:17
IntuitiveNipplezack___: as DasEi said, it is worth running testdisk on it, let it analyse the drive - it will likely find the boot-sectors of each of the file-systems, and help you rebuild the partition table so you can access the file-systems again, even if only from the LiveCD06:18
sumo_suIntuitiveNipple: oh sure my fault and youre right06:18
yokobrchubs, it installed with reiserfs06:18
ubottuFor upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes06:18
Alpha232reiserfs is a murderer ;)06:18
yokobrchubs, wtf is wrong with ext3?06:18
chubsyokobr, that's a killer filesystem06:18
zack___intuitive, how would i run test disk? i have all night06:18
yokobri know06:18
heyman12is there a way to install GD on ubuntu?06:18
sumo_suhmm... each drive has a different MBR06:18
yokobrchubs, i didnt meant to install it..06:19
IntuitiveNipplezack___: Are you running as LiveCD on that machine right now?06:19
frazrasDoes anyone know why is XMMS not inthe hardy repos?06:19
yokobrbut its the only one that installs06:19
sumo_suzack___: have you tired unplugging that xp drive?06:19
DasEiIntuitiveNipple:like to watch it, if zack___ isnt to shredded now06:19
zack___though i am doubtful of any progress. i have to reboot into the live cd im in super grub. yes i have unplugged the xp drive and tried booting directly form the ubuntu drive06:19
chubsyokobr, like i said before, type in mount at the commandline. give me the output06:19
Tomas5786Q is there a IRC bot that can be installed on ubuntu06:20
yokobrchubs, with no params?06:20
IntuitiveNippleDasEi: no harm analysing it, and rewriting an experimental partition table is only the first sector, which is corrupt anyhow (but can be backed up first)06:20
chubsyokobr, none06:20
therealnanotube^paradox^: look at the "split" command. it will do what you want.06:20
redvamp128I figured this would be the place to ask this question- What PCI not PCI Express Video Card would you recommend for Ubuntu 8.04. Right now I am on Intel Onboard I believe it is 810 series. ?? Any recomendations? Ati or NVidia?06:20
sumo_suzack___: maybe you set the jumpers wrong when you installed the HD06:20
IntuitiveNipplezack___: start it with the LiveCD and then install testdisk: "sudo apt-get install testdisk"06:20
frazrasheyman12: sudo apt-get install php5-gd06:21
zack___sumo, the jumpers are right, i havent changed them from when they previously worked06:21
^Devious^ati or nvidia pci card would suit06:21
heyman12are you kidding me frazras06:21
DasEiIntuitiveNipple:prob is neither fstab nor supergrub sees any fs, e2fsck missed, gparted shows nth...so, wish zack..  force and gods sake ...06:21
heyman12that easy06:21
^Devious^depends on what you are trying to do and other factors of your system06:21
therealnanotubeTomas5786: search in synaptic, you might ind something. :)06:21
yokobrchubs, http://pastebin.com/m6879519706:21
^Devious^you dont want to stick a fx 5500 pci in a pentium 75 with 16 mb ram06:21
frazrasheyman12: thats the only place I ever used GD06:22
redvamp128I had a more powerful system with Ati 9700 and Amd 64 but it was stolen and will take some time to get up money to rebuild it..06:22
IntuitiveNippleDasEi: I've rebuild disks with much worse problems than this. It is possible, but it does require time and some intelligence applying, and often plenty of manual intervention.06:22
chubs^Devious^, find me a motherboard and i'll do it06:22
yokobrjust a min06:22
redvamp128And this is a PIII 900mhz  512mb memory06:22
Jambonok. I somehow nuked x and I don't know where to begin. I was trying to configure my network settings (I couldn't see my wireless connection and there was no option to check on it), and the control panel told me I was not allowed to access it. then the computer froze, so I did a hard reboot, only to find x unable to start even in recovery mode. It said something about the x.config file being read-only. Any ideas? I really just want to g06:22
redvamp128but no-- AGP found for 100$ Whole system.06:23
DasEiIntuitiveNipple:zack___ : your nerves ? another 30 min of digging ?06:23
^Devious^I have a question - for anyone who would care to answer. What is the most featured CLI based web browserr - capable of utilising java, images etc06:23
chubsyokobr, pay attention to line 13. sudo umount /dev/sda106:23
chubsthen try06:23
chubsto partition it again06:23
zack___oh lawds mights as well attempt it06:23
^Devious^lol I know you could really stick it on a p75 - you have a very similar system to me.... The most youd probably do is a geforce 4 pci or fx5500 - something like that06:23
therealnanotubeTomas5786: on my feisty box, command "apt-cache search 'irc.*bot' returns a couple dozen matches.06:23
IntuitiveNippleDasEi: I've spent a week rebuilding a failed RAID array :)06:23
bunnytowhat is a good samba configuration tool?06:23
sysdocWhat is the apt-get to upgrade to intrepid?06:24
zack___intuitive, haha06:24
redvamp128I had to disable - the Visual effects just to get it to run without artifacts.06:24
redvamp128GF 4 FX5500?06:24
yokobrchubs, it only works with reiserfs..06:24
therealnanotube^Devious^: i use 'elinks' on the cli. no java/javascript, but does just about anything else.06:24
^Devious^nah GF4 440 might do the trick06:24
^Devious^elinks sounds good06:24
yokobrtry ext2?06:24
yokobror any other?06:25
redvamp128I found a GF 6600 Pci EVGA06:25
^Devious^And also - is there a way to boot an operating system using a non bootable Sata card (It has no bios or anything) using some kind of linux boot disk - or any method will work ok06:25
zack___intuitive ok im in the live cd, apt-get install testdisk?06:25
redvamp128256mb would that work well in ubuntu with all effects turned on06:25
IntuitiveNipplezack___: can you copy stuff from that PC to the 'net ?06:25
yokobrchubs, yeap?06:25
chubsyokobr, quit the installer. sudo umount /dev/sda1. cfdisk /dev/sda06:25
DasEizack___ : boot into live, go to the catacombes...06:25
zack___dasei, lol06:25
^Devious^GF 6600 PCI???? wow.....wouldnt you lose half the Bwidth of the card?06:26
zack___intuitive, ya i can pastebin outputs and such, testdisk isnt a found package though06:26
bunnytowhat is a good samba configuration tool?06:26
yokobrumount: /dev/sda1.: not found06:26
yokobrumount: cfdisk: not found06:26
yokobrumount: /dev/sda: not mounted06:26
redvamp128256mb though06:26
yokobrsorry for the flood, just 3 lines ;)06:26
dinxyokobr: run as root06:26
^Devious^well I reckon having 256mb ram is enough for a lot of machines....it depends on what you do with it and how you use ram/disk06:27
yokobrdinx, ive ran as root06:27
chubsyokobr, those are separate commands, and you should have sudo in front of them. cfdisk /dev/sda is a separate command06:27
chubsyokobr, if it isn't mounted then cfdisk it06:27
therealnanotube^Devious^: "apt-cache search 'www-browser'" will give you a good list to start with, if you want more options. :)06:27
IntuitiveNipplezack___: I'd like to see that sector 0... can you attach it to a post in the forums, Hardware and Laptops? Do "dd if=/dev/sda bs=512 count=1 | gzip >sector0.bin.gz" and attach the gzipped file to a post in the forum06:27
^Devious^I was running win2k on 64mb ram - I reckon youd get effects running ok eventually with a bit of tweaking06:27
yokobrchubs, done.06:27
^Devious^that just taught me something new - I've been meaning to learn how to SEARCH apt from CLI06:27
IntuitiveNipplezack___: I'm wondering if there's a clue in the data in the sector of what has happened, which might give us a clue on how best to repair it06:28
murlidharerr can anybody guide me to the openbox irc channel?06:28
therealnanotube^Devious^: hehe, yw. :)06:28
redvamp128Though Ubuntu works very well with onboard -- with the effects turned off.06:28
zack___intuitive ok give me a minute or two06:28
chubsyokobr, done as in you partitioned the reiserfs partition as ext3?06:28
IntuitiveNipplezack___: ok, give me a poke when you've done it06:28
redvamp128It even does MPEG video better at full screen than WinXP did.06:28
^Devious^nano - can you pm me shortly when you can be bothered? thx in adv06:28
yokobrchubs, now wich file system should i choose?06:28
therealnanotube^Devious^: here's another tip: your irc client probably has automatic tab-completion of usernames. so if you type in "there" and hit tab, it would autocomplete my name. ;)06:29
chubsyokobr, ext306:29
^Devious^It does tooo thanks06:29
^Devious^thats great06:29
^Devious^therealnanotube:  awesome06:29
^Devious^but how does it diff between people?06:29
therealnanotube^Devious^: indeed. :) now the posts where you mention my name get nice and highlighted in red. ;)06:29
yokobrcant find it on ckdisk06:30
therealnanotube^Devious^: if there's no unique match, it gives you a list.06:30
* dinx slaps devious :-)06:30
therealnanotube^Devious^: try it, if you just type "the", hit tab, see what comes up. :)06:30
gord_THE GAME comes up06:30
Jambonanyone, help with X?06:30
Bigmack83i want to compress a file and contents into a .tar.bz2 file. (tar jcvf file.name files_2_compress) but is there a way to target a directory and exclude one of the subdirectories in it from being in the compressed file?06:30
dinxJambon: >06:31
yokobrchubs, its the default one?06:31
Tomas5786Q which IRC bot is the best for Ubuntu06:31
chubsyokobr, just blank it for now, see if the installer can handle it then, alright?06:31
zack___intuitive, ok new thread posted06:31
Gun_Smoketherealnanotube,  uberscript for xchat has a nice function of sorting nicks.. autocomplete with the last nick used.06:31
DracoZAIs there going to be a 8.10 version this year ?06:32
Jambondinx: ??06:32
zack___intuitive, "hard drive seems to have died"06:32
murlidhark figured it out anyways . it's irc.ofrc.net06:32
dinxJambon: you said something about X06:32
DasEivampires ẞ http://pastebin.com/m140c27d906:32
Gun_SmokeDracoZA, are you asking about ubuntu version?06:33
DracoZAyes Gun_Smoke06:33
IntuitiveNipplezack___: Yeah, looking at the file already :)06:33
Jambondinx: yes. it's borked. any restart, no matter in recovery mode or not, cannot start it. in recovery mode it tells me my x.org config file is read-only06:33
therealnanotubeGun_Smoke: nice, i'll check it out... but i'm a really fast typist, so i usually type about first 5 chars of name before hitting tab, which gives me a unique match most of the time. heh.06:33
yokobrchubs, the installer still see it as reiserfs (and ive choosed write, and then yes)06:33
peepsaloti wanted to try out rt kernel but just ended up with a busted video driver06:33
Gun_SmokeDracoZA, 8.10 translates to Oct of 08 so yes.06:33
peepsalotnot sure what i need to get it back06:34
DasEizack___:since the 1 tb info of s-grub i also could imagine a hdd-end06:34
chubsyokobr, restart06:34
zack___dasei, whats that?06:34
yokobrok, just a min, so06:34
^Devious^did anyone answer my non bios sata boot question? I was away for a moment06:34
dinxchubs: whats he trying to do ? convert reiserfs to ext3 ?06:34
DracoZAGun_Smoke wasnt sure with 8.04 being LTS whether that still meant 8.10 will happen, havent seen anything mentioned anywhere it.06:34
IntuitiveNipplezack___: haha... the MBR is now an NTFS boot-sector, the first sector of an NTFS file-system.06:34
Gun_Smoketherealnanotube, yeah same here.. uberscript has a lot of other cool functions.06:34
DasEizack___:end of life of a hardware component06:34
Gun_SmokeDracoZA, look at digg it's all over it.06:35
zack___intuitive, what the hell can that be fixed?06:35
DracoZAGun_Smoke will do, Tx06:35
IntuitiveNipplezack___: looks like somehow the drive was file-system formatted... I could do with seeing more sectors.06:35
Gun_SmokeDracoZA, and you can peak in #ubuntu+106:35
DasEizack___:but on the other hand... you say windows is still running on it ?06:36
therealnanotubeGun_Smoke: so where do i find this uberscript?06:36
zack___dasei, the second hard drive has a working windows install06:36
chubsdinx, yeah06:36

Jambondinx: any ideas?06:38
Gun_Smoketherealnanotube, it's easy to install.. extract it and move the I think 4 files to .xchat2 in your home folder06:39
Gun_Smokethen restart xchat06:39
sysvwhat's the kernel version in the current 8.04 installer?06:39
Gun_Smoke24 i think06:39
yokobrchubs, didnt worked..06:39
crimsunsysv: 2.6.24 is the base.06:40
DasEi IntuitiveNipple: can't join there06:40
sysvChrist, not .26?06:40
D0M1N8RGN all thanks for the help tonight06:40
therealnanotubeGun_Smoke: too bad there isn't a more comprehensive feature list and stuff... i'm kinda wary of putting it in and getting a whole crapload of options i don't care for. :)06:40
Gun_Smokejust as easy to remove.06:40
yokobrchubs, it still saw it as reiserfs06:41
DasEiunop ?06:42
chubsyokobr, I think you're doing something incorrect here06:42
unopDasEi, gutten morgen06:42
chubsyokobr, will it still install to reiserfs?06:42
Gun_Smokethat poor guy06:42
DasEiunop:thanks again for dazuko, see http://pastebin.com/m140c27d906:43
unopDasEi, where is this from?06:44
Jambonwould it be possible to see my installation and files from an install cd? my x is bored (says the x11 config file is read only and can't do anything about it).06:44
yokobrchubs, im doing it right... the problem is that every time i point to that partition, it mounts it automaticaly, and then it cant format as ext3 file system06:44
^Devious^So does anyone know how I can make a non bootable sata card bootable? Its a VIA type chipset06:44
DasEiunop:scanning one of my """open""" linux machines06:44
unopDasEi, ok, but is that a good thing or a bad thing?06:44
Cheekyhey could anyone tell me wat this message says?http://paste.ubuntu.com/49578/ i installed apache and started it but gives this message anyone ?06:45
chubsyokobr, how are you pointing to the partition? the installer should not mount it06:45
yokobrchubs, i have to find a way to make it stay unmounted while i install.06:45
DasEiunop:eerm, that means that some tricky programmers use wine to have win trojans running via wine06:45
chubsyokobr, that's the default behavior, well during partitioning. it mounts it to install of course06:45
therealnanotube^Devious^: try this? http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=59093106:45
^Devious^therealnanotube: -- thanks06:45
brandonmpaceyokobr: I would just go get the alternate install cd, because that will most likely work for you06:46
Vooxhow come when I play videos in firefox I can't play mp3s at the same time?06:46
^Devious^what does it briefly say? I went over my quota for dloads by 60gb...and Im capped at like 4 - 6 kb/s06:46
gukinaIf i want to share a folder over my network, should i write it to 755?06:46
unopDasEi, that makes sense - Wine provides an implementation of the win32 API - so technically, if the API allows for it, a virus should have no problem running.06:46
therealnanotube^Devious^: says, in bios, change the sata mode to "raid" instead of ide.06:47
unopDasEi, though in most cases, the viruses don't really have the ability to affect the actual linux system - they are contained within the wine environment.06:47
chubsunop, DasEi, the API only is the key there. A trojan won't really do anything06:47
DasEiunop:for me its less bad, as its all logged by an outgoing srve,but in times before cause of that (and its also blocking such stuff) I had very often issues in connections06:47
yokobrchubs, i think it will work now06:47
chubsyokobr, what'd you do? or rather, what were you doing ;)?06:48
brandonmpacechubs is correct06:48
unopchubs, you have to remember that there is a symlink within the wine directory heirarchy that points to / tho - there is a potential for file access into the system.06:48
DasEiunop: also the cmd-line scanner seems to work better/deeper than the win-gui06:48
chubsunop, if you're running a wine program as root.06:48
DasEichubs: or a keylogger got your rootpassword...06:49
yokobrchubs, its "copyng" the files on the installer.. but it mounted it anyway..06:49
unopchubs, not all files are owned by root tho - after all / contains /home which contains your homedir and so on06:49
chubsyokobr, it mounts it to copy the files06:49
yokobrchubs, so it seems to work now..06:50
brandonmpaceunop: there would have to be a specific implementation of any certain malicious program SPECIFICALLY for wine06:50
chubsunop, I don't think you're understanding, it won't get beyond .wine to begin with06:50
^Devious^therealnanotube:  - interesting thing - My bios has support for booting scsi/network but the sata card itself does not support booting from bios...its not onboard card - and06:50
chubsit'd have to be written for WINE, not windows06:50
Jambonwould someone help me with X. It's very broken and I do not know how to fix it. It just tells me my xorg.config file is read-only06:50
^Devious^therealnanotube:  and the card HAS NOT got a bios06:50
chubsoh, ^5 brandonmpace06:50
unopchubs, i don't think you're understanding me - file access is file access, wine or otherwise06:50
yokobrchubs, i had to click on "unmount" on the moment that it prepares to build the file system..06:50
yokobrchubs, one more second, and i would have crashed.06:51
DasEiunop,chubs: also in that recent time there where strange facts about suedors and passwd, until i strictly put up an new owner with restrictive rights06:51
chubsyokobr, well i'm glad you got it working06:51
therealnanotube^Devious^: well, then i'm out of clues for now....06:51
yokobrit worked, but its not the proper thing to do.06:51
^Devious^therealnanotube:  so - I would think that there needs to be some kind of driver mashed on a boot disk with linux on the disk - but I wouldnt know where to start making a customised boot disk, or even a boot loader that supports this kind of odd setup....... I've got a card that DOES support bios boot (Promise - Ilove promise cards always have they are so robust and strong)06:51
yokobrchubs, but thank you for the help =D06:51
yokobrchubs, and sorry my poor bad english.. im brazilian as you can see.06:52
DasEiunop,chubs: anyway, becoming offtopic, thanks for advice and hard to wound linux, huuhm06:52
chubsyokobr, no problem. ot but do you like os mutantes?06:52
^Devious^BRB ALL06:52
yokobrchubs, i was on 2 shows06:52
brandonmpaceunop: it may have file access, but if it was coded for actual windows, it would not know how to run ~wine maliciousprogram06:52
yokobrchubs, just love it.06:52
chubsyokobr, me too :)06:52
Blaenkhey guys is there a way I can use ssh/scp/sftp to download a directory off my server?06:52
Blaenkplease, I'm desperate ;(06:53
|Steve|Blaenk: scp -r.06:53
tonyyarussoBlaenk: scp with the recursive switch.  (details in the man page)06:53
Blaenkthanks guys I appreciate it06:53
chubsunop, well I guess you can worry if you've got your permissions on / as 77706:53
Blaenkcan you please please give me a very quick example, scp -r mydir/ once I'm sshed in right?06:53
yokobrchubs, great! i saw them on the van before the show and talked with'em.. .but Rita Lee was not there... she left the band (or was disbanded) a long time ago..06:53
bunnytowhat is a good samba configuration tool?06:53
Jamboni cannot reconfigure x.org. it tells me the file is read only. can anyone please help?06:54
DasEichubs: or after changing a sys-pw the old one still works, to next to the new one, oo06:54
|Steve|Does anyone else have problems using scp to transfer a file larger than 2MB to a computer running ubuntu? The transfer stalls for me.06:54
tonyyarussoBlaenk: Which way depends on what your network topology is on both ends, as some are easier than others.06:54
^Devious^ok guys I have another one I'm curious about - My dlink router doesnt really support port forwarding....its a dog of a router (there is a way to do it, but its way too much to bother) - is there a way I can setup an FTP server on the network using Ubuntu and be able to access it OUTSIDE the network?06:54
chubsyokobr, that's too bad, but still awesome to see them. anyways good luck with ubuntu06:54
Blaenktonyyarusso: hmm06:54
unopbrandonmpace, that's not the point - if the wine process has already launched dubious code (the virus) - it has access to files, within wine and as a consequence of the symlink, access to files outside of the ~/.wine heirarchy06:54
Blaenktonyyarusso: but I use scp after I ssh in right?06:54
jim_phello there06:54
bunnytoonly pansys uses routers06:55
|Steve|Blaenk: No. Read the man page.06:55
sitsBlaenk: that's lazy :) but... scp -r username@addressofremoteserver:dierctory directoryonyourlocalmachine/06:55
yokobrchubs, thank ya.. And another hint : try to listen to "Los Hermanos". Another great brazilian band.06:55
unopchubs, it's quite easy to try and delete files recursively, starting at /06:55
brandonmpaceunop: ok but it would still have to know what to look for....06:55
tonyyarussoBlaenk: Nope - scp is ssh and cp combined into one command.  You can do it while in an ssh session, but it amounts to sshing back to the original machine.06:55
Blaenkohhhh I see06:55
chubsyokobr, will do.06:55
^Devious^how so bunnyto06:55
BlaenkI get it now thanks sits and tonyyarusso06:55
BlaenkI appreciate it06:55
brandan_Anyone know a program I can use to record videos of my desktop ?06:55
brandan_to post to youtube and things06:55
unopbrandonmpace, why not? ~/.wine/dosdevices/z:/ points to /  .. so a process running under wine, has access to z:\*06:56
brandonmpacebrandan_: recordmydesktop06:56
tonyyarussobrandan_: Istanbul works reasonably well, but the file sizes were still too large for my taste.  It's a lot more complicated, but I'd recommend reading Alan Pope's instructions on screencasts.ubuntu.com for some ideas.06:56
brandonmpaceunop: well the only problem you would probably have is a virus that deletes files06:56
^Devious^But how would a virus in wine affect a filesystem that it cannot read?06:56
brandonmpacethat´s my point06:56
DasEi ^Devious^: depends on your ip, i doubt you have a static from your ip06:57
^Devious^Im not on sides06:57
unopbrandonmpace, right, and that can be quite a bad thing - because I value my data more than the integrity of the OS06:57
^Devious^but Im curious to know now06:57
brandan_Thank you, I will get and try out both.06:57
^Devious^plus arent most viruses written in assembly or C?06:57
bunnytoit is weak06:57
chubs^Devious^, it can't, really06:57
DasEi brandonmpace:easily, like e2fs for winxp06:57

ubottubunnyto: The people here are volunteers, your attitude should reflect that. Answers are not always available. See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrcGuidelines06:58
brandonmpaceunop ^Devious^  I think i´ll go unleash a virus in a VM using wine and see what happens, one that deletes files.06:58
bunnytoive paid for ubuntu!!!06:58
hateballbunnyto: If you've paid for support, you should contact Canonical06:58
^Devious^well it wouldnt work in a VM I know that one myself06:58
tonyyarussobunnyto: Through which firm?  (Hint: You should get support through them, whomever that may be.)06:58
tonyyarussohateball: (Note that Canonical isn't the only source of support contracts any more.)06:59
brandonmpace^Devious^: I have fried a windows VM that way....06:59
^Devious^It would be a magically very WELL WRITTEN virus to actually infect the Virtual system first and THEN pass through the VM's network to the host and fry it06:59
hateballtonyyarusso: Alright, didnt know that :)06:59
DasEi***also needs money, lol06:59
^Devious^Although I reckon the best type of virus would be written in assembly.....It would work the quickest06:59
chubswine isn't a VM. the virus will try to access files that it can't or that don't exist06:59
^Devious^like a bullet twisted06:59
DrBanzaiWhat's a good file system to use on a 750gb drive for storing video files of 700mb - 4.7gb?  I was going to use ZFS, but it seems to be a cludge...07:00
hateballAnyhow... you just drag the bars whereever you like them to be, bunnyto07:00
bunnytoI've paid the guy in the store, he sold me a Ubuntu OEM CD for 300$us with Life universal support on #ubuntu , WHERE is my support??07:00
^Devious^looks like youre getting it from an IRC channel :D07:00
chipbuddyi have a laptop and a desktop running ubuntu. i want to remotely log in to my desktop from my laptop. i'm assuming i can use something like ssh, but how do i find out the address up the desktop computer?07:00
* Realcoolguy smiles hoping bunnyto is joking :D07:00
^Devious^not the store07:00
brandonmpace^Devious^: i´m saying that I had no connection between the VM and the host and I fried the xp vm with a virus on purpose, bsod07:00
^Devious^BSOD hey....lovely!07:00
DrBanzaichipbuddy: Open a terminal window and type ifconfig07:01
^Devious^chipbuddy you can try VNC????07:01
brandonmpacechipbuddy: VNC07:01
Gun_Smokebunnyto, you seriously didn't pay 300 did you?07:01
|Steve|brandonmpace: What sort of keyboard do you have? Most people don't have a ´ key so using ´ for ' is an uncommon typo.07:01
zenohi!  i just got a new disk, is it ok to use BSD for the label on it?07:01
brandan_I used Istanbul and pressed the Red button to record then pressed it again and it disappeared, Where does it save videos?07:01
zenoor does that matter07:01
brandonmpace!vnc | chipbuddy07:01
ubottuchipbuddy: VNC is a protocol for remote desktop. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH describes how to use it securely.  It works best over fast connections, otherwise look at !FreeNX07:01
unopzeno, depends if you would like to use the disk on a win32 machine ever?07:02
zenounop: nope07:02
unopzeno, then you can choose any disklabel07:02
brandonmpace|Steve|: International07:02
^Devious^Id really like to know how to give my network machines real IP's - ATM im just getting sub network addy's (.0.16, 168.0.5 etc etc07:02
zenounop: thanks.  also how come XFS isnt in the choices for partition type?  Im using it for video music only07:02
zenoin gparted07:02
unopzeno, xfs is purely optional - you'll have to install it from the repos07:03
brandan_Does anyone know where Istanbul puts recorded videos?07:03
brandonmpace|Steve|: ´ is what I get when I press the apostrophe key07:04
|Steve|brandonmpace: Strange.07:04
zenounop: ok thanks doing that.  also gparted giving Unable to open /dev/sdc - unrecognised disk label., maybe ill just go with msdos07:04
jim_pbrandan_: have you looked inside your /home dir07:04
unopzeno, strange07:04
Bogus8where can I get kernel-patch-2.6-reiser4 package?07:05
zenounop: should i select round to cylinders?07:05
|Steve|brandonmpace: I think I'd remap that. It'd drive me nuts to not have an apostrophe/straight single quote.07:05
DrBanzaiWhich file system should I use on my new 750gb drive?  I'll be using it to store video files of 650mb up to 4.7gb.  I was thinking of using ZFS, but it appears to be a bit of a cludge...07:05
unopzeno, if you like, i don't see it give you any advantage.07:05
detrixHello all. I am setting Ubuntu up for programming in C/C++. I am getting this linking error:  undefined reference to `__gxx_personality_v0'   I am not sure what lib to link with???07:05
zenoDrBanzai: ive heard XFS is good for that.  im using it for my new drive07:05
brandonmpace|Steve|: lol well it looks so similar that I don´t mind07:06
zenounop: dont know what it even does :)07:06
|Steve|detrix: You're trying to compile c++ with gcc. Use g++.07:06
unopDrBanzai, choose a filesystem that is supported widely - in the case, that is ext307:06
Bogus8IS there a kernel-patch-2.6-reiser4 package?07:06
detrixI thought gcc would run g++ for me...ok oh well07:06
DrBanzaiunop: This won't be a "traveling" drive...07:06
zenounop: thanks for all the help.  should i run fsck on it?07:06
|Steve|brandonmpace: Doesn't it affect your ability to do things at the command line?07:06
unop!find kernel-patch-2.6-reiser4 | Bogus807:06
ubottubogus8: '|' is not a valid distribution07:06
DrBanzaizeno: I thought I read somewhere NOT to use a journaling fs...07:07
unopzeno, errm, you have to create a filesystem first tho07:07
Bogus8unop: but the package maintainer for reiser4progs "suggest" that package07:07
brandonmpace|Steve|: well on this machine I just do basic stuff like internet, etc. So not on this computer. It would on my other one though lol07:07
unopDrBanzai, if you don't use a journal - you have little chance of recovery if and when things go wrong07:08
zenounop: yeah its formatting it07:08
DrBanzaiunop: Yeah...and now I can't remember why it said not too...07:08
^Devious^what is the QUICKEST file system?07:08
Bogus8^Devious^: depends on what sort of files you have07:08
unop^Devious^, fat1207:09

unopBogus8, <ubottu> Package/file kernel-patch-2.6-reiser4 does not exist in hardy07:09
chubsBogus8, it'll lead you to the answer eventually07:09
zenounop: what should i put for dump and pass in fstab?07:10
unopBogus8, you could search packages.ubuntu.com07:10
detrix|Steve| : thanx that was it.07:10
Bogus8unop, chubs well, the reiser4progs suggest that package... does someone need to fix that?07:10
unopzeno, 0 207:10

Cheekyiam getting an error everytime i restart apache server in ubunter server .. could anyt one help me .. this is my error : http://paste.ubuntu.com/49583/07:15
^Devious^Id really like to play with 2 Os's07:15
^Devious^Amiga os and Mac os07:15
^Devious^I wonder how easy this would be under ubuntu07:15
bastid_raZor^Devious^; Mac in a VM is not practical07:17
judgen^Devious^ Very. All you need is a MacOS CD + basilisk/pearpc app. For amiga you need UAE a Amiga rom file and the amigaOS cd. then youre set to go.07:17
^Devious^ahh but I have amiga 3.9 - I've heard problems with doing that in UAE - speed etc etc ....Ialthough it would be good hey07:17
^Devious^I heard that its one of the best systems for graphics and pure speed07:17
judgen^Devious^ works fine over here though.07:18
CircsA program is asking me to "make" the binary, I am totally lost... I have no idea even where to start.07:18
^Devious^judgen can you pm me shortly?07:18
Blaenkdoes anyone here know about apache? if I have a folder in my home directory that I want to show up in my site, but my htdocs directory is elsewhere, how can I accomplish this?07:18
brandonmpace^Devious^: mac in a vm isn´t anything special....   what a surprise....   no seriously is runs slow in a vm07:18
judgen^Devious^ well you are going to emulate the experience, not even close to the same feeling. Also the UAE isnt perfect so expect crashes when multitasking.07:18
^Devious^brandom - feel like pm shortly?07:19
^Devious^interested in both for later project07:19
zenounop: works great thanks!  would be sort of neat for mv and cp to have a % bar on a separate note07:19
^Devious^I have about 50gb hard disk space to mess with07:19
^Devious^+200 spare if need be but on non boot sata card07:19
^Devious^ive heard with Mac os - that its actually faster on some normal X86 machines!!!07:20
^Devious^than an actual mac - they couldnt explain it07:20
unopzeno, you can use something like cpipe to give you a progress bar07:20
unopzeno, though, i don't think it'd work with cp or mv07:20
zenounop: hmmm what reason would the new drive be slow as hell?07:21
unopzeno, what kind of drive is it?07:22
zenoworks fine but ive been copying files for 3 mins and only 43MB used.  could be because xfs to ext3?07:22
Blaenkcan someone help me give user 'bob' access rights to a particular folder called 'test' ?07:22
friedtofuany suggestions for an RSS feed app?07:22
zenounop: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682214827407:23

zenomore like 3MB/sec07:23
judgenAnyone know of an nice minimal WM that iconofies windows when minimized?07:23
jim_pfriedtofu: conky!!! or lifearea of course07:23
jim_pjudgen: fluxbox or openbox + some panel like pypanel, bmpanel. fbpanel07:24
unopzeno, 3MB/Sec - is that what you are getting at the moment?07:24
jim_pjudgen: or tint07:24
zenounop: yup.  could be caues XFS and transferring from ext3?07:24

mikeyfbijim_p problem is i'm not sure what i do/do not need ;)  how exactly would i do that as well..just sudo sysvconfig in terminal?07:26

jim_pOmgItsAshark: there is a channel names #pidgin07:29
bastid_raZorOmgItsAshark; #pidgin07:29
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)07:29
redvamp128The reason why I ask is that I can get a ATI PCI 9550 for 30$07:30
unopzeno, hmm, that's quite slow for SATA - but still doesn't explain 3Mb/S07:30
redvamp128But people say ati driver is not really that great07:30
databridge_what does ubuntu different from windows?07:30
OmgItsAsharkalot of stuff07:30
unopzeno, things like RAM capacity and CPU speed have an effect on overall throughput - especially with big files07:30
chubsunop, so it doesn't matter a great deal, as we said07:30
zenounop: i have a fast processor and 4GB ram07:31

unopchubs, there clearly is - sudo does not run a command as root, it merely changes your EUID to 0 - allowing the process you invoke to the superuser - but sudo does not clear your environment, so it preserves things like your $HOME, $USER, $SHELL, etc variables07:35

unopchubs,  - so graphical applications that use these variables to create files, create files that the user does not have access to - leading to unexpected and erroneous results once the app is run as normal user again. gksudo gets around this by resetting the varialbes that matter07:36

redvamp128I thought the only time you need to run FF with sudo- is when you want to check for updates to firefox.07:37
bunnytoit was locked07:37
unopchubs, now, you should see why it matters and why gksu was written in the first place - and therefore, used appropriately.07:38
chubsunop, there is no reason to be running firefox with sudo anyways07:38
Odd-rationaleredvamp128: no. ff does not need sudo to update it's addons...07:38
unopchubs, try telling that to the flock of users who do so anyway.07:38

sh4lindevsh4lindev: well, this is quite common - you needn't care about these, it says your server is not able to get his default domain name (i.e. a reverse A DSN record does was not found for translating IP => server name)07:42
redvamp128Though will only need to update firefox when they officially release a new update-- and I have seen that others have not had issues with it (usually a month or 2 after the release)07:42
chubsunop, I believe you, but do you have a link to this policy or is it among the ops/council only? I've read the guidelines before and reread them when you said that, I'm curious07:42

Cheekyunop: i was trying to set up  wat you talking about but when i open apache2 /http.conf files .. the files is empty :-$08:39
orbisvicishow much does ubuntu use avahi ?08:40
orbisvicisdoes it implement multicast dns ?08:40
unopCheeky, starting with apache2 (on debian atleast) - the default config file is /etc/apache2/apache.conf08:40
orbisvicisi.e. will it detect network printers ?08:40
orbisvicisand will it autodetect cifs shares ?08:40
Cheekyunop:  this is the doc iam following to set it up :http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/apache-server-status/08:41
brandonmpaceorbisvicis: usually you can get to network printers08:41
orbisvicisjust asking b/c i dont see any outgoing mDNS queries in syslog08:41
Cheekyunop: i see a files saying apache.cnf08:41
unopthat howto won't apply to ubuntu - it uses the wrong files08:42
orbisvicisbrandonmpace: do you know if it autodetects windows file sharing ?08:42
brandonmpaceorbisvicis: it is supposed to08:42
Cheekyunop:  ojk .. dam08:42
unopCheeky, always search for ubuntu related content first - then perhaps debian and the rest - that way you'll find stuff relevant to you.08:43
unopCheeky, http://www.debuntu.org/apache-activity-performance-mod_status08:43
brandonmpaceorbisvicis: it did for me08:43
Cheekyunop: ill check it out08:43
Cheekyunop: doesnt torrent downlaods ..slow your computer down .. the page loading time .. or is it coz i have another unbunter running on my LAN ..?08:44
Cheekyunop: that site you gave me is taking ages to download in firefox .. ubuntu never ran this SLo W ..08:45
unopCheeky, torrents slow a network down considerably - bad things they are08:45
bunnytoim going to suicide08:45
brandonmpacebunnyto: ?08:45
bastid_raZorCheeky; of course you can slow your internet to a crawl if you don't limit your upload and download speeds08:45
Cheekyunop: yeah .. eveb bad when the file you downloading is going @  59 K... slow compared to how windows ran utorrent08:45
AssargadonWhere screen resolution configuration applet gets resolutions list?08:46
orbisvicisbrandonmpace: hm thanks it detected my printer but i coundt test windows cifs shares08:46
unopbunnyto, #defocus ;)08:46
edpAssargadon, from the xorg.conf08:46
Assargadonedp, I don't think so08:46
AssargadonI mean, there are 17 modes in xorg.conf08:46
brandonmpaceorbisvicis: I´m sure there is a way. I don´t have cifs08:46
Assargadonand only 10 in applet08:46
peepsaloti messed up my graphics settings by installing a different kernel, i think i got the graphics drivers working again, but I can't change my resolution above 640x48008:47
bunnytoubuntu makes me hurt myself...08:47
unopCheeky, it's not just that - torrent clients open up 100s of connections concurrently - you have to factor in the bandwidth usage of all those connections too - then you have much more than 59kbps08:47
antiderivativeI tried installing ubuntu on a P45 chipset and then I got brought into BusyBox08:47
orbisvicisbrandonmpace: maybe im not configuring netfilter correctly, but that type of autodetection requires mDNS queries, and syslog isnt recording those08:47
edpAssargadon, regards the depth color no?08:47
peepsalotcan someone help me set my resolution08:47
antiderivativedoes intel work with a 64 bit processor?08:47
orbisvicisi mean, i dont have an way of testing cifs08:47
edpnjpatel, depends on your cpu08:47
edpantiderivative, depends on your cpu08:48
bunnytoantiderivative: yes08:48
antiderivativeIntel Core 2 Duo 3.108:48
Assargadonedp, for every depth08:48
edpantiderivative, then yess lol08:48
antiderivativeI tried installing 64 bit version08:48
bunnytoantiderivative: your processor is obsolete, but yes it works08:48
antiderivativeand it crapped out08:48
bastid_raZorCheeky; some torrent applications in ubuntu give you the ability to limit how many connections per torrent or even limit global connections.08:48
antiderivativebunnyto: obselete?08:48
bunnytoantiderivative: amd64 ?08:48
edpAssargadon, i don't really know, just trying to find out, just like you lol08:49
orbisvicisbrandonmpace: you dont happen to know if your computer is broadcasting udp packets through 5353 to 224.xx.xx.xx ?08:49
Assargadonedp, thanks for your try, anyway :)08:49
brandonmpaceorbisvicis: no I do not08:49
Cheekyunop:  hey iam in my conf file and i cant seem to find the loactions .. to change it?08:49
antiderivativeDoes anyone know if Ubuntu will install on a P45 chipset?08:49
edpAssargadon, no pb dude,08:49
twbWhat package provides those "examples" videos and sounds that are available on the live CD?08:49
jim_ppeepsalot: you have a pm08:49
orbisvicisbrandonmpace: well had to ask ; \    probably gotta reconfigure netfilter08:49
AssargadonHey, guys, where screen resolution manager (System->Settings->Scrren resolution ) gets his resolution list? I can see only 10 different resolutions in applet, while I see 19 of them in my xorg.conf (for every color depth)08:51
Quartermaster1I'm trying to install ubumtu but I've been waiting 1 hour does it take a long time to install or something?08:51
edpQuartermaster1, no, it's quicker than dows lol08:51
brandonmpaceAssargadon: /etc/X11/xorg.conf08:51
brandonmpaceAssargadon: there may be too many for it to display08:52
Assargadonbrandonmpace: I have 19 resolutions in file you told about, and 10 only in applet.08:52
brandonmpaceAssargadon: there may be too many for it to display08:52
Cheekyunop: can i paste pin my apache.conf file ?08:52
AssargadonI changed "1280x960" resolution in every section of my xorg.conf to "1280x961". Then I restarted x-server via ctrl+alt+backspace. But in screen resolution manager's list 1280x960 keeps alive, not 961.08:58
AssargadonShould I restrat whole ubuntu for it?08:58
bastid_raZorAssargadon; you can't make up resolutions08:59
AssargadonOr screen resolution manager gets his list from some other source?08:59
Cheekyunop:  you there?08:59
Assargadonbastid_raZor: what dp you mean?08:59
bastid_raZorAssargadon; you can't make up resolutions09:00
brandonmpaceAssargadon: I have deleted every resolution except the 3 that I need and they are the only ones that show up now.....  and resolutions have to be standard resolutions lol09:00
Cheekycould anyone tell me where the server-status is in my apache.conf ..file ..cozi cant seem to find it..  here is my pastebin of my apache2.conf file http://paste.ubuntu.com/49595/..iam trying to set up the mod_status09:00

brandonmpaceKoN8392:  you right click on the panel>add to panel>the add the CPU freq applet.     Once added, left click on the  applet and select a slower speed or powersave setting. this helps prevent overheating09:04

KoN8392brandonmpace: is there a p2p program for linux? like kazaa or limewire09:30
mryanbrownyea uh09:30
Flannelfl0w: You're now a member of only your primary group (same as username) and admin.  (without the -a it replaces the group list, instead of appending)09:30
brandonmpaceKoN8392: frostwire09:30
stdinbullgard4: it means display 0 screen 0 on the local system; ':' is a host separator, nothing before it means "local". the 1st '0' means "display 0", the '0' after the dot means "screen 0" (useful when you have more than one monitor)09:30
remoteCTR1brandonmpace: there is no such thing like international layout in there:D09:31
Flannelfl0w: So, while adding yourself to admin, its not the end of the world, but if adding to something else, you would've removed yourself from a lot of stuff (including admin)09:31

OdnsRvnsSarthor | i dont think this has anything with ubuntu this seems more of a MOBO issue that its not reading the xp disk is it a good disk or like a iso download10:00

lunaciaBut no sound.10:00
sarthormy CD drive is 100% fit.10:01

atul_i will try tht10:20

omacdyllan...yeah the flash plug in should work without issues after rebooting your machine.  The sun stuff also wants to install the docs, but there are errors.  If you let it auto install, you will not see the doc not installed error.  use aptitude instead.  You should see the error and deal with it accordingly.10:23

CybertinusActionParsnip1: yeah, that is what I'm trying to do ;). And that is where I have problems ;)10:36

tarelerulzFuse_ I mean a program to rip the cd  first .  Then load the songs onto the ipod .   So the ipod would know all the meta data and have the cover art too. amarok get the cover art ,but I have no idea where it put it so I could use gktpod to put the songs on the ipod10:38
remoteCTR1IntuitiveNipple: it definitely is...10:38
ActionParsnip1Cybertinus: looks like a success to me10:39

smm281I find using add/remove... is better than synaptic when looking for installable applications, I know they are pretty much the same thing, but Add/Remove... seems to work better for applications and synaptic for packages.  Synaptic will give u the same thing but Add/Remove only displays the applications that give you a GUI front end.  Am I correct in this description?10:47

ActionParsnip1Rotel: it removes the data more thoroughly so its harder to recover11:13
