NillerzPROBLEM: On windows I got resolutions up to 2048x1536. This appears to be impossible on linux. Is there a fix?00:01
danbhfiveHooSIER|KiNG: I think you just need to change the order of the Modes listing.  Under the "Screen" section.  The login will use the first, which is 800x600.   Just "cut" the one you want, and "paste" it into the front00:01

KetsubanI have a couple of networking-related problems which may or may not be related. 1) When I browse to a Windows share and open it in Nautilus, it automatically gets mounted and leaves an icon on my desktop. This behaviour was not present in pre-Hardy versions of Ubuntu and is annoying, and I would like to disable it so I can browse shares without mounting. 2) I am unable to browse any shares on our Windows Home Server system -00:01
Ketsuban the error message I get from smbtree is "cli_rpc_pipe_open: cli_nt_create failed on pipe \srvsvc to machine HOMESERVER.  Error was NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED".00:01

danbhfiveGerinych: please dont ask that type of question.  Just repeat your original question from time to time00:18

lanoxxhi, i want to have a static wlan ip only if i am connected to a certain AP, and dhcp for everything else, how can i configure this, i have already edited the interfaces file, but now i have a static ip nomatter to what AP i connect00:19
danbhfivesnova: go for it.  If there is a package that needs it, the package manager will try to remove more than gcc.  If that happens, just stop the process00:19
snovatrimeta: probably because i installed an older version of a devel library or something like that. now that i'm upgrading and trying not to download any more than i have to, i'm discovering a lot about the packages installed on my system. thanks for the explanation.00:20
trimetaGerinych: Basically, if you write your menu.list pretty much correctly (except for the proper HD name), you can go to the Grub screen, choose "Edit entry," edit the line with the HD, and then it'll have tab completion of all the drives and partitions it sees.00:20
snovadanbhfive: unfortunately, it wants to upgrade java before i uninstall 4.1, which counts as a large download :)00:20
danbhfivesnova: mk00:21
Gerinychtrimeta: ah, that. Yeah, i tried doing that, but the error says that the partition table is corrupt, not that it can find a partition00:21

belkinhelp2snova....i suppose i could use dd, create the image on the local drive and the move it over the network manully02:01
snovabelkinhelp2: there are packages expressly for the purpose of backups, and i'm sure plenty of them work over a network.02:02

asimpliedI have two problems: First, when I play movie files (i.e. youtube) in firefox, there is no sound.  This is a problem that I had fixed previously, but has since resurfaced--I believe the resurrection was caused by firefox updating; however, the previous method I used to fix this problem--install latest flashplayer--is not working.  The second problem is that I cannot burn cd or dvd's.  I have gone through several forums and it seems that this is a 02:02

onxbelkinhelp2, let me think about how to do it with pipe magic, but the more comfortable solution is probably using a locally mounted network share (nfs/smb) and using a tool like partimage02:10

penEsquilo, I can use the trash in nautilus and the panel, but somehow the desktop icon disappeared02:51

pedro-orangeSebNaitsabes: If u not u can dkpg-reconfigure xorg-server02:51
penEsquilo, so this is considered to be a bug isn't it?02:51

Esquilopen, do it. make another user... and I bet with you that this icon will show there ;)02:53
penEsquilo, alright, let me try02:53
SebNaitsabespedro-orange:  he has a resoloution which is great, before the drivers go on,  which is lost after the driver from the repo,  but I guess I would add that resoloution into the correct place in x config  and hopefully it will work theno r?02:53

carspedro-orange: Actually, I'm so sick of Windows Vista and Microsoft that I'm going to try and convert permanently to Ubuntu.  I had an error from a Windows Update which deauthorized my license and now I'm stuck in Limited Functionality mode hell.  I'm going to run as many games as possible in Ubuntu.03:42
pushnellCycom: UUID.pm03:42
Cycompushnell: hrm...03:42
pedro-orangeSebNaitsabes: I'm not sure about that. With regards to the driver probably glx03:42
Seveaspushnell, put the pm in a place in @INC or use 'use lib /path/to/dir_with_pm/'03:43
Seveaspushnell, obviously, the former approach is better :)03:43
jigpnonewmsgs its an ms office 2007 file...03:43
SebNaitsabespedro-orange:  his computer is a few years old with 256mb RAM03:43
GerinychI can't boot OSx86 with GRUB, someone help03:43
pedro-orangecars: Running games in wine sometimes works, I tried to get alot working for my housemate - and was only about 20/30% successful. but since they're written for windows - its what i expectedf.03:43
SeveasGerinych, find an osx86 channel, this is Ubuntu support03:43
pushnellSeveas: @INC already has /usr/lib/perl5, but the problem is that the package manager did not install the .pm under the Data folder, so when I 'use Data::UUID;' it can't find it.03:43
Gerinychseveas: sorry03:44
Cycompushnell: try installing libossp-uuid-perl maybe...03:44
izinucsjigp, its also a file from Office 2000... it's a doc file with macros03:44
carspedro-orange: I'm so furious with it that I'm considering using Cedega.03:44

Seveaspushnell, hmm, looking at the package now...03:45
SeveasArney, go somewhere else.03:45
jigpizinucs : yes but I cannot open it in office 200003:45
pedro-orangeSebNaitsabes: you may find this page and it's links helpful: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/Nvidia03:45
Arneywhere exactly03:45
SeveasArney, I don't care, just not in here. We don't support illegal p2p things03:45
=== mike is now known as Guest99136
pedro-orangecars: You should check winehq appdb for games. Cegeda is worse than wine imo.03:46
valroswhos familiar with anjuta03:46
Cycompushnell: supposedly it that package above contains UUID.pm03:46
Arneyits not illigal, there are many legal things there. downloading stuff you havent bought is illigal.03:46
carspedro-orange: Worse as in compatibility?03:46
izinucsjigp, that's weird unless there was a file format change between office 97 and office 2000 like there was for the latest Office product.03:46
nonewmsgsjigp, sorry if OOo doesnt open it then idk would would03:46
Seveaspushnell, the lib-ossp-uuid-perl package (replacing libdata-uuid-perl apparently) does things correctly in intrepid03:47
nonewmsgsArney, this isn't an argument you want to have here...you're about to get your ass banned03:47
pedro-orangecars: Worse as in getting apps to run. Plus Cedega don't contribute, and they steal alot from the wine project03:47
Arneyok then i have another question. is there a 64 bit version of ubuntu??03:47
SeveasArney, yes03:47
nonewmsgsArney, yes03:47
Seveaspushnell, the lib-ossp-uuid-perl package (replacing libdata-uuid-perl apparently) does things correctly in hardy as well03:48
SebNaitsabespedro-orange: thanks03:48
Guest99136hey, I just installed ubuntu but i had to change my hard drive mode to ahci to get the installer to recognize the hard drive, problem is that windows does not recognize the hard drive in ahci mode, how do I get linux to recognize my hard drive now?03:48
carspedro-orange: I thought Cedega based on a fork from wine, so they're not stealing any more.03:48
pushnellOk, not sure if that's the same UUID package or not but checking it out.03:48
valrosyeah arney, too my extreme surprise my old intel celeron booted ubuntu 6403:48
=== Guest99136 is now known as mike1
pushnell(sorry Cycom, Saveas, was trying to find out if that was the same package via cpan)03:48
valrosanyone familiar with anjuta?03:48
Cycompushnell: no problem.  I suppose you could always go the CPAN route as well :)03:49
pedro-orangecars: I've not ever used cedega out of principle, plus im not paying for it. If the apps u want are supported go for it.03:49
Arneyi have a wolfdale 2.53ghz03:49
Seveaspushnell, ah... please don't ask for support for CPAN packages in here. We only support ubuntu packages03:49
pushnellSaveas: I'm sure cpan would be an easy fix, but I'm trying to feel out ubuntu, so trying to stick with ubuntu packages/methods for now.03:50
Cycompushnell: so did you install it then?03:50
Seveaspushnell, excellent :) apt-get install libdata-uuid-perl (which installs libossp-uuid-perl)03:50
Cycomdon't forget the sudo!03:51
Seveaspushnell, generally, if something is called Foo::Bar on CPAM, there's a libfoo-bar-perl package in Ubuntu03:51
carspedro-orange: Eh, I'll just try everything with Wine first, but if it doesn't work, I'll just use virtualbox or something to run XP and run things through there (If there is any 3D graphics support for a virtual machine?)03:51
Cycomcars: VMWare 6.5 supports it for XP guests.03:52
pedro-orangecars: I would imagine virtual machines to have poor performance for games03:52
Cycomcars: it's still in beta, but it supports up to DX903:52
Cycompedro-orange: cars: you can also buy crossover and use that if wine doesn't support it, depending on the game.03:52
pedro-orangecars: what games do u want to play? check the wine appdb03:53
carspedro-orange: I was hoping that coming from Vista, all the resources I'd save would make up for any poor performance :)03:53
pedro-orangeCycom: Isn't crossover for macs?03:53
pushnellok, yes, that worked.  Thanks Cycom & Seveas!03:53
Cycompedro-orange: macs AND linux.03:53
tyberionwhat is the basic pdf viewer command for ubuntu? which is supposed to be better than acroread?03:53
Cycompushnell: happy to help a fellow perl masochist.03:53
pedro-orangeCycom: Then you know more about it than i do.03:54
randomlogic78I have set a package to 'hold' how can I change that so I can use apt-get to uninstall and start over03:54
ushimitsudokityberion: evince is one03:54
Cycompedro-orange: yeah, I bought it a while back.  it's pretty decent, but generally not quite as good as a native linux app or a native windows app.  I was using it to run office 200703:54
pedro-orangeCycom: you can run office2007 in wine iirc03:55
mike1hello I needed to switch my hard drive from sata to AHCI in order to get the installer to recognize my hard drive, but i need to use the hard drive in sata mode to boot into windows, how do I get linux to recognize my hard drive, i can get the details of the controller card03:55
tyberionushimitsudoki: thanx that was the one I was looking for.03:55
Cycompedro-orange: crossover gives you actual support for stuff like that, and supposedly submits their stuff upstream to wine.03:56
sobrenowhow do i change my ip with operaq?03:56

pedro-orangesobrenow: Opera doesn't control your IP its a browser*03:57
R-800_Hello, everyone.  I'm having an unusual amount of trouble using the online instructions on how to install GRUB loader.03:57
R-800_I get the GRUB prompt, and then fail to find the relevant folders and files in the Terminal.03:57
pedro-orangeAnyway; im off.03:58
R-800_My BOOT folder seems to have only five folders in it, and none of the ones the instructions tell me to access.03:58
R-800_Five files in it, rather, not folders.03:58
sobrenowhow do i do that pedro03:58
JunTa1how do you start a service? i want to start syndaemon but the only way i found to do that was through command line03:58

paganiniDoes anyone have any idea why, when logged in via XDMCP, my 'M' key only registers every other press? All the other keys seem to work fine.03:59
R-800_Is there any way to download GRUB loader before installing it?  The instructions seem to assume you have access to the necessary files on your system, but I seem not to, for some reason.03:59
izinucsR-800_, I don't know which online tutorial you're looking at but I'll see if ubutu is around.04:00

R-800_izinucs: I used that guide already.  I can only get as far as to get to the GRUB prompt in the Terminal.  The very next step fails, giving me an error that something failed to be found.  I then did some research that led me to believe that my BOOT folder was supposed to contain certain files or folders that the instructions were looking for.  But when I went to my BOOT folder afterward, I...04:07
R-800_...found that nothing the instructions were telling me to search for were present there.04:07
corunumneed help getting the internet to work in virtualbox04:07

chipbuddyi'm trying to get my ssh from my laptop to my desktop. when i have my laptop plugged in to a wired connection, the ssh works fine. but when i'm the wireless network it doesn't work. i think this might be because my laptop is using the wired settings for when i'm connected wirelessly. does this seem plausible, and how do i fix it?04:10
R-800_izinucs: I can do that and then display it here.  Is that what you are suggesting?04:11
penbobertdos, the problem is that in the config editor it is checked04:11
penbobertdos, but the icon is not showing on the desktop04:11
izinucsR-800_, no just so you'll have a copy of the instructions for when you boot to the live cd to fix grub04:11
R-800_izinucs: I don't have a problem with keeping the instructions handy while using the Live CD.  I have that problem solved already.  I thought you were asking me to save my error message from the Terminal to some outside media so that it could be shown to others later.04:12
Tarantulafudgethere we go04:12
izinucsR-800_, no .. I'm sorry.. misunderstanding...04:12
bobertdospen: and you're under the right key? apps->nautilus->desktop?04:13
bobertdospen: Oh, and you're running as a regular user, right?04:13
Ububeginwhen i type ls -lst... in a particular folder.. I get this {72 -rwxr-xr-x  1 myName myName 66505 2008-09-23 11:12 libimageOpenCV.so} .. how can find out what the different columns mean04:13
R-800_izinucs: Okay.  But since it is clear now that I have the instructions while using the Live CD, what is it that you would suggest at this point?04:13
penbobertdos, I'm the first user and it's a admin04:13
izinucsR-800_, are you on the live cd now?04:14
penbobertdos, it was there before04:14
penbobertdos, but somehow I forgot what I did and that icon disappeared04:14
penbobertdos, I suspect it went offscreen04:14
bobertdospen: I mean, are you running the config editor as just yourself (not root)04:14
R-800_izinucs: I'm not running Ubuntu at all right now, nor the CD, no.  I can't access my Ubuntu partition without GRUB, and I can't get online with the Live CD alone (because my network adapter drivers aren't on the CD).04:15
bobertdospen: I don't see how it could go offscreen unless you're running dual monitors or something.04:15
fignutsis there a video and audio stream recorder for linux?04:16
penbobertdos, I'm running as myself of course04:16
izinucsR-800_, ok.. you have two ways of fixing grub.. boot to the live cd and follow the instruction  from the links or google for "supergrub" disk and download  and burn.  It's handy to have around anyway..04:16
GTSo, besides a few other very mysterious problems having to do with compiling, I'd been having an intermittent problem that kept me from shutting down properly. Something rather like this message: http://pastebin.com/d5b90f83 would repeat over, and over , and over again, endlessly. So, I followed a recommendation on the forums saying I should change my SATA operation mode from non-RAID to RAID. This seemed like a stupid idea to me, and it was. now04:16
penbobertdos, I remember I take all the icons on the desktop and move them to other folders, then after that the trash bin disappeared04:16
GTCan anyone help me fix this, or if not, how do you get a new install of Ubuntu to recognize an already-existing separate /home partition?04:17
R-800_izinucs: Supergrub sounds promising, and as you say, may be good to have on hand.  But there may be a problem, unless there is some way to do this "burning" after having booted from the Live CD (which, in my mind, sounds unlikely).04:17
izinucsR-800_, burn from windows.. as long as you have something to burn an iso.04:18
R-800_izinucs: I don't.  Could you suggest something that's good, for free?04:18
izinucs!iso | R-800_04:18
ubottuR-800_: To mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.04:18
bobertdospen: Well, you could always try deleting all the gconf related folders in your home directory, thereby reverting everything to default and trying again.........04:19
izinucsR-800_, hang on .. I'll check in another location04:19
R-800_izinucs: I'd appreciate it.  Thanks.  I have bad luck with general links to software.  I never find just what I'm looking for.04:19
penbobertdos, but I have changed something in gconf and I think I need that04:20
Batty4I was curious about alias assignments for Ubuntu, they don't seem to save.  Do I need to place them in .bash_profile or something?04:21
bobertdospen: What is it you've changed?04:21
izinucsDoes anyone have the name of a program to burn iso's from windows.. something reliable and "free" for R-800 ?04:21
Batty4Such as alias ll=ls -la --color=auto04:21
geniiizinucs: CD Burner XP Pro04:21

Tarantulafudgechris127: I don't think its called netcat04:24
izinucsGT, that's one way to do it.. durning install.. makes it easy.. just don't format it.04:24

SebNaitsabesand by the looks of the xconfig  that he has after he did a x recovery from Grub.  it has all the screen stuff missing, which  he had in the backup of a previous xconfig.  so I am thinking  I got to put that in the current xconfig.  and then run that other command for the changes.  and then  get him to re boot and hopefully it works05:59

penRat409, is that for linux?06:58
Gnea[Solars]: press F6 and eliminate the 'quiet splash' at the end of the bootline so you can see the error message when it locks up06:58
Violetbassjim_p, there is one running "SystemToolsBack"06:58

Rat409!sudo | HyperD07:07
ubottuHyperD: sudo 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)07:07

Gneaafallenhope: ah, which one did you reinstall? what's the name of the package?07:07
Rat409!root | HyperD07:07
ubottuHyperD: 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/RootSudo07:07

R-800Seveas, no offense to you at all, as I appreciate your help, but I've been through all that, and something is missing in my system (I suspect anyway) that prevents me from following those instructions.  Something is not found after I get the GRUB prompt in the terminal.  But you've got me wondering, what might I install on a USB stick, for booting that way?07:17
SiDiHi Hi07:17
Yekyaafirefox detected it as a "Redirect Loop" and gave up attempting the request after less than 5 seconds b/c it keeps redirecting back to an invalid page or something07:17
SiDiDoes anyone know why would Firefox load my old bookmarks at each reboot and not save the new ones ?07:17
[Solars]Gnea seems that a new cd burn is what it took07:17
penRat409, still07:17
penRat409, an instance is already running07:17
Gnea[Solars]: awesome07:17
[Solars]we'll see how far it goes till the next thing breaks lol07:17

IentzyJordan_U i make shortcut automatical for desktop, but i don`t know to insert them in menu accesorry automatical07:18
[Solars]right now its finding out I don't have a fd007:18
josok_Gnea:  Ok..... working07:18
SeveasR-800, you could put the live cd + syslinux on a usbstick so you can boot from it. But that will give the same results.07:18
SeveasR-800, some more info on what seems missing would be helpful, the complete output of grub would help07:18
Jordan_UR-800: It's really easy to make a fedora Live USB install ( it's officially supported even ), from there you can easily install grub ( you can also do the same with Ubuntu, it's just not officially supported )07:18
josok_Gnea:  Done07:19
R-800Severas, understood.  Same results or no, I still wonder how that would work, because booting from a USB stick sounds like something I'd have to enable in the BIOS, and I don't believe my system would have such a setting (assuming that is the way it's set up).07:19
Rat409pen: i used a tarball from homepage,it may be a lib's-version issue because of intrepid .deb07:19
SiDiIentzy, it's through Nautilus. You got an option to add "signets" (french word sry :P), and if u add any they'll pop up the shortcuts the taskbar too07:19
Gneajosok_: alright, now try:  sudo modprobe ndiswrapper07:20
[Solars]hopefully "install" doesn't overwrite what i have on my first set of RAID007:20
R-800Jordan_U: What would I have to download to do that?07:20
josok_Gnea:  k07:20
SiDiDoes anyone know why Firefox loads my old bookmarks at each reboot and refuses to save new ones ?07:20
penRat409, you mean the python lib?07:20

josok__Gnea:  I've put back up my old drivers.  Wireless is now working07:44
Jordan_UR-800: If you do get grub4DOS installed I am not sure if it will automatically update when new kernels come out, if it doesn't you should probably install the packaged grub once you're booted into Ubuntu07:44
R-800My God, I can't make heads or tails out of this readme file!07:44

Darksidernor in the program literature*07:54
Jimm_zcat[1], ok thanks it seems im using mac80211, b4307:54
Jimm_zcat[1], I noticed that 'modprobe -l' shows that the bcm43xx driver is being loaded along with the legacy driver. Is it ok to leave them there?07:56
zcat[1]Jimm_: not sure. You could add bcm43 to the blacklist if you don't want it loaded07:56
Jimm_zcat[1], It's already in the blacklist, i'm just wondering if I should put legacy there too?07:57
zcat[1]no diea sorry ;07:58
Jimm_zcat[1], actually now that I think of it, should the module still show in modprobe even if it is blacklisted?07:58
R-800Aarrrgh!  Even the instructions for REPAIRING a GRUB tells me to do the same thing, which will not work.  If I dare type "find /boot/grub/stage1" at the GRUB prompt, it won't be found.  No documentation I've ever found addresses this.07:59

Jordan_UR-800: Why exactly isn't grub installed?08:01

DeanGnea:  Back to cat508:02
Jimm_R-800, how did you loose grub in the first place?08:02
GneaDean: any results with this?  sudo ndiswrapper -l08:02
R-800Jordan_U: I reinstalled Windows, and as we all know, it rewrote the MBR.  That much I know.  But as for why the files these instructions tell me to access with the GRUB prompt can't be found, that, I can't imagine.08:02
Jordan_UR-800: You can install grub with "grub-install /dev/whatever" in linux IIRC08:02
DeanGnea:  says that bcmw15 driver installed08:03
skurakaihi. how can i install new ktorrent on ubuntu 8.04?08:03
R-800Jordan_U: You mean from a Terminal?08:03

GneaDean: okay - try replacing the b43 with the ndiswrapper again08:03
RudyValenciaI have a laptop with a BCM4306 wireless card. It works in the GUI but not on the commandline, how do I fix that?08:03
R-800Jordan_U: From a terminal in the Live CD booted environment, even?08:03
DeanGnea:  Ok.  and how would I replace it?08:03
Jordan_UR-800: Yes, a terminal in pretty much any booted linux, LiveCD or not ( Ubuntu or not )08:04
GneaDean: ndiswrapper -r bcmw15, then just load the new .inf with ndiswrapper -i whatever.inf08:04

Jordan_UR-800: No, sorry, that's just a geeky way of saying that I meant "drive" not "partition" in my earlier comment :)08:07
R-800Jordan_U: Forgive me.  Can we try this one more time?08:08
Jimm_RudyValencia, you can use iwconfig to configure it I think, or use the gui to config it, then disable gdm and use console08:08
GneaRudyValencia: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx/Feisty_No-Fluff  it's a bit dated, but seems to get dodgy results, seeing as how the bot just went on sabatical08:08
RudyValenciaWill that likely work for hary?08:08
GneaRudyValencia: we're doing it now :)08:09
Jordan_UR-800: I *think* the command would be "sudo grub-install /dev/sda" If not then "sudo grub-install (hd0)" should work too ( the second would work from windows if there is a grub install for windows, not sure if /dev/ would work as that's linux specific )08:09

rycarhow do I perform a minimal install of ubuntu?  I want to only install just enough software to where I can use apt to install more software08:10
Jordan_U!minimal | rycar08:10
rycarthe command does nothing08:11
R-800Jordan_U: Thank you.  I can give that a try.  It doesn't matter if it won't work from Windows, because I can try this from the Live CD booted environment.  I'd be more inclined to try your second option.  Think that has a good chance of giving me back my dual boot?08:11
Jordan_Urycar: There is a minimal install CD available ( the channel bot seems to be dead for some reason )08:11
rycarI had a mini.iso but it still installs base and half a gig of other stuff08:11
rycarI've tried desktop, server, alternate, etc08:11
ubotturycar: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD08:12
Jordan_UR-800: Yes, but I think you would still need to run "update-grub" from the installed system as well ( you can do this from the liveCD, but you have to use a command called 'chroot' to make it run from the installed system )08:12
R-800Jordan_U: I see.  And that would just be good practice for the sake of software upgrading, right?  So I could do that afterward?08:13
Jordan_UR-800: No, that generates the configuration file that grub reads at boot, it is required08:14
R-800Jordan_U: Alright then.  So now I'm wondering which needs to be done first.  It's the sequence I'm fuzzy on.  : )08:14
rycaris there anything special I have to do to tell the installer that I want to pick which packages to install?  It just seems to pick everything automatically08:15
mryanbrownhow do you kill a running process in terminal08:15
rycarps aux to find the process, then kill <pid>08:15

rycaror type killall processname08:15
skurakaiwhere can find "path/to/prefix/of/kde4/installation"? /usr/lib/kde4 ?08:15
Jordan_UR-800: What partition is Ubuntu installed to, I can give you a single command ( well, a single line with multiple commands ) that should do it08:16
R-800Jordan_U: Ubuntu is on it's own hard drive, and WinXP is on the Primary one.08:17
scuserhi all, does anyone know which file is the pam configuration file for ubuntu 8.04 ?08:17
rycarhow do I tell the installer which packages I want installed?08:18
Gneascuser: have you looked in /etc ?08:18
Flannelscuser: /etc/pam.d/*08:19
Flannelrycar: Which installer do you have?08:19
Gneaand /etc/pam.conf08:19
rycarFlannel: mini, server, alternate, desktop08:19
Jordan_UR-800: "sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt && sudo mount -o bind /dev /mnt/dev && sudo grub-install /dev/sda && sudo chroot /mnt update-grub" *should* do it, no guarantee :)08:19
Flannelrycar: You need one of the first three, and you have to go to expert install (which I believe requires you to manually add "expert" or something like it to the options from the boot menu).  Any reason you want to specify actual packages?  What are you ultimately trying to accomplish?08:20
scuserFlannel: yes, but which file in the pam.d directory, I want to make ubuntu login through kerberos but I don't know which file should I modify, could you help me with that ?08:20
rycarI'm trying to make a minimal install to act as a server in a virtual machine08:20
Flannelrycar: Ah.  You actually probably want JeOS08:21
R-800Jordan_U: Thanks.  Don't worry if this screws something up.  I've been in the middle of reinstalling both OSes for some time now.  I was simply hoping to avoid reinstalling Ubuntu this time (but will if I have to).  So no guarantees, like you say, but no real worries, either.08:21
rycarI know there is a way to select packages because a long time ago I got into the screen when an install crashed halfway08:21
Flannelrycar: http://www.ubuntu.com/products/whatisubuntu/serveredition/jeos08:21
Flannelrycar: Yes, that's the expert mode08:21
rycarF6 at the boot menu for expert mode, JeOS looks great, thanks flannel!08:22

Flannelscuser: Its likely you don't need to hand-edit a file there, but install a package (libpam-krb5 looks promising)08:23
scuserFlannel: I've installed this package but nothing happens, ubuntu uses the same authentiaction without kerberos08:24
R-800Jordan_U: Okay, I'm going to go try this out.  If I come back again tonight, it probably means it didn't work.  : )08:25

scuserikonia: well I've used login.krb5 and it is working fine; I have a user scuser and a kerberos principal scuser both with different passwords for the system login kerberos pass doesn't work and for the login.krb5 the system user pass doesn't work, is that enough to make sure that kerberos is working ?09:17
ikoniascuser it certainly sounds like it's working.09:18
ikoniascuser: what does your nsswitch file look like09:18
scuserikonia: what is nsswitch file ?09:18
ikoniascuser: /etc/nsswitch.conf09:18
scuserikonia: I'll see09:19
ikoniascuser: it is the file that sets the order for "searches" of susb systems09:19

scuserikonia: so ?09:22
Gneapapiiiiiiiiii: are you sure?09:23
ikoniapapiiiiiiiiii you need to stop it now09:23
ikoniascuser so you'd nee to edit that to change the the search order to kerberos first,09:23

satais there is live cd of ubuntu09:24
ikoniascuser: there are examples in the file, take a look09:24
Flannelsata: There is.  It's the "Desktop CD"09:24
ikoniasata: the install cd is a live cd09:24
papiiiiiiiiiiok baba09:24
satai want to install ubuntu permanently on the hard disk09:25
Flannelsata: You can use the Desktop CD for that too09:25
satawhat that menas on thgis site09:25
sataCheck here if you need the alternate desktop CD. This CD does not include the Live CD, instead it uses a text-based installer.09:25
ikoniasata the one that says "desktop" cd09:25
plowmansata:when you fire up the Desktop cd there is an option to install09:26
sataone more think09:26
sataif i check this option and then download the cd the size of iso is 699mb (Check here if you need the alternate desktop CD. This CD does not include the Live CD, instead it uses a text-based installer.)09:27
ikoniasata you don't want the alternate cd - so don't check the box09:27
Flannelsata: If you want the Live CD, you want the Desktop CD, not the alternate CD09:27
satai want to install it permanently so i will uncheck this option09:28
sataalternate cd size is 699mb09:29
sataand normal cd size is 694mb09:29
ikoniaso ?09:29
Flannelsata: They both will give you the same installed system.09:29
sataso why the size difference09:30
plowmansata: you will also find the install option on the desktop when you boot into live mode09:30
sataso both ca work as live cd and to install cd09:30
ikoniasata: they are different install methods, forget about the alternative cd09:30
satathank u09:30

scuserikonia: which file should contain the passwords for the kerberos ?09:30
ikoniasata: get teh desktop cd09:30
ikoniascuser: ......er none, it's a kerberos server09:31
sataso i will download this one09:32
satathat can be installed as well as live cd09:32

FD_FFlanel , i have hardy09:47

EspenBe"sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" works in a way, but when I re-enable the 3D in Gnome, it falls back to 800*600 resolution09:47
FlannelFD_F: alright, then your issue is instead that you have Edgy stuff in your sources.list, you should get rid of that09:47

scuserikonia: I'm just trying to login to the system09:50
bakarat_so i boot, and i get no ip half of the time, /etc/init.d/networking restart, dhclient eth0, ifdown && ifup etc don't work..09:50
bakarat_just ahve to reboot and hope it works again09:50
Le-Chuck_ITATerence: sorry if I misunderstand  but did you really install 6.06?09:50
CorpseFeederI don't know if plugging a regular mouse in has fixed it or not, but both the laptop trackpad and the external mouse seem to be working normally  now without the buttons locking up.... normally I have to reboot to get this level or normalcy back..09:50
Le-Chuck_ITATerence: why didn't you install a more recent release?09:51
CorpseFeederAny thoughts?09:51
ikoniascuser: kerberose is not a user system though - it's an authentication protocol - it needs to have something to authenticate with, eg: ldap, nis  etc09:51
TerenceI get it from the library book DD09:51
HexusHeLLzSpaWn: There could be, I only know of the terminal one though.09:51
Le-Chuck_ITAwe are in 2008 :)09:51
tarelerulzmy time is still off . I try  setting the bios clock to the right time and turn  utc=yes  might fix the time ,but it did not09:51
Le-Chuck_ITAtry to run hardy I think hardware support higly improved in last years09:51
HexusHeLLzSpaWn: did you enter the PID of the number or did you actually enter "process ID"?09:52
FlannelTerence: Well, 6.06 is a mighty fine version, but it is a bit old (two years now).  You'll probably have a better experience for a first time user on 8.04.  Luckily for you, you can actually upgrade straight from 6.06 to 8.04, if you'd like to try.09:52
tyberionI can paste marked stuff with middle mouseclick, but is there a way to keyboard paste that stuff too??!09:52

CaptJagerI have poweriso but error out09:53
HexusHeLLzSpaWn: its looks like  "sudo kill 1322"09:53
FlannelKartagis: install "vim", the default one is vim-tiny, which doesn't offer a whole lot09:53
FlannelTerence: It does.  If you want to double check your specific card, there's a list, let me see if I can find it.09:54

CaptJagerso no one has ever had to convert a .daa with ubuntu09:56
Terencethank you Flannel, I'll try the latest version. I've just downloaded it in the form of .iso, maybe I should copy it on a CD09:57
FlannelTerence: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI  The prerequisite section explains what lines are supported by which drivers, and then in that same section theres a link to the Xorg release notes, which are even more detailed.09:57
TerenceOh, I'll check it09:57

ikoniaCaptJager: I can't see it in the ubuntu repo10:08
cwilluCaptJager, .daa is a proprietary format.  If you're having troubles with their (closed source) conversion utility, you need to contact them for support :/10:08

cwilluCaptJager, where did you get the daa files from?  If they're your own files, consider just using an iso, daa doesn't provide anything terribly useful10:09
CaptJagerthat is all I am looking for new to linux but not going back to windows10:09
Hexuscwillu: you serious about offtopic being for advanced help?  Im ready to go anywhere.10:10

airtonixikona, CaptJager i have used poweriso as a linux binary i think10:10
atlefCaptJager: sorry : ./poweriso convert xxx.daa -o xxx.iso -ot iso10:10
cwilluHexus, just based on experience, you're more likely to run into people who like to talk about more advanced uses10:10
ActionParsnipCaptJager: you can run poweriso via wine to convert but to know how it works ask in ##windows10:10
cwilluHexus, it's not a support channel however :p10:10

ubottuAs you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)10:15
IntuitiveNippleCaptJager: I recommend you get a known good .daa file from somewhere else and test poweriso with it... if that works, then the .daa you're trying to convert has some issue - could be a DAA version difference that poweriso doesn't understand10:15
ubottuWays to automate installation of Ubuntu on multiple machines are described at https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/installation-guide/i386/automatic-install.html - See also !cloning10:15
ActionParsnipIntuitiveNipple: agreed, i was mistaken. just seems silly is my point but i guess people are used to it in windows (even if it does ship with spyware)10:15
cwilluHexus, I'm not terribly interested in buying a new laptop for the want of a wireless card, but I also have no interest in having some little dongle sticking half an inch out of the side waiting to snap off :p10:16
ubottuTo replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « dpkg --get-selections > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo dpkg --set-selections < my-packages && apt-get dselect-upgrade » - See also !automate10:16

ja1Hi! I just installed kubuntu. I need to recompile the kernel. Im unfamiliar with debian systems. Do I just get the latest kernel, unpack, make config   like I did in Red hat?10:37
IntuitiveNippleja1: Is there a particular reason for rebuilding the kernel?10:38
ja1IntuitiveNipple: Problems with the KDE4 graphics + tuning.10:39
ActionParsnipja1: its the same10:39
mkartichey, how do i clear out my amarok collection?10:39
ikoniaja1 what sort of tuning10:39
ikoniaja1: how do you think a kernal build will change your graphics ?10:39
austinOnce I have run all the commands should I restart the machine?10:40
ActionParsnipyes as you'll probably get a new kernel10:40
ja1ikonia: Adding RS232/USB converter, for instance. And I cant keep my fingers away in general...10:40
austinagain thank you for your help.10:40
ikoniaja1: that module exists, you can modprobe it10:40
=== lipsinV1 is now known as lipsin
mkarticcan someone tell me how i can clear my amarok collection so that i can start over?10:40
ja1ikonia: I hope to specify my onboard gfx card better than the general kernel.10:40
IntuitiveNippleja1: If you really need to edit the kernel then download the kernel-source and modify the package. apt-get source linux-source10:41
ikoniaja1: but the kernel has nothing to do with xorg10:41
IntuitiveNippleja1: or, even, sudo apt-get install linux-source10:41
ja1ikonia: If I had remembered the name of the rs232/USB module...10:41
ikoniaja1: shouldn't be too hard to find10:42
IntuitiveNippleja1: is it an mt adapter?10:42
ikoniaja1: your reasons for rebuilding the kernel don't seem to make any sense10:42
ja1ikonia: I remember there was some options in the kernel for your hardware. Maybe Im wrong.10:42
zllangmay be you should complie the driver in kernel10:42
ikoniaja1: there are plenty of options for your hardware10:42
scuserhi all, does anyone know how to configure nsswitch.conf file to search for kerberos authentication beside of passwd ?10:42
ja1IntuitiveNipple: mt sounds familiar.10:42
ikoniaja1: none that will help your graphics issues10:42
ikoniascuser: you need somethign to auth against10:43
ikoniascuser: kerberose is an authentication protocol10:43

IntuitiveNippleja1: maybe this?  Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0711:0230 Magic Control Technology Corp. MCT-232 Serial Port10:43
ikonianeSSun0o: subjective question, join #ubuntu-offtopic for non-support questions10:43
ja1ikonia: Thanks for the information. Still, would you prefere getting a new kernel, or would you use apt_manager or similar to get patches?10:44
IntuitiveNippleja1: the module for the MCT is mct_u23210:44
ikoniaja1: apt-get gets pre-compiled bindary packages, not patches10:44
ikoniaja1: why do you want a new kernel ?10:44
ja1IntuitiveNipple: Yes, thats a MCT-23210:44
IntuitiveNippleikonia: incorrect. linux-source contains the kernel source and Ubuntu patches10:44
scuserikonia: well I can't get your words :( could you make your words more clear ?10:44
ja1ikonia: As I said, cant keep my fingers away. But Im unfamiliar with debian.10:44

ikoniawitek23: ok, an ide10:46
ushimitsudokiwitek23: usually, it you use an IDE which calls out to the complier10:46
ikoniawitek23: look at eclipse10:46

HeLLzSpaWnatlef: yeah but there are like 4-5 different choices in Synaptic...how do i know which one i choose?10:47
atlefHeLLzSpaWn: and you need to add your user to the vboxusers group10:47
IntuitiveNippleja1: No... that'll be just a matter of configuring the correct module for the hardware, using /etc/modprobe.d/options (when you've found the correct options of course!)10:48
atlefHeLLzSpaWn: virtualbox-ose module for linux-image-2.6.24-16-generic10:48
ikoniaja1: I'll say again - you don't need to compile the kernel10:48
TMD-DubbedI just installed  ubuntu along side of windows and i get to the login screen and log in and i hear the music but then it goes back to the log in screen.10:48
ikoniaja1: you don't need to "specify" hardware, it's modular10:48
CorpseFeederIf I left-click and drag I can draw a box and select icons,  but if I single or double click on an icon, nothing happens.10:48
ja1IntuitiveNipple: Finding the options will take some research...10:49
atlefHeLLzSpaWn: sorry, you need the newest10:49
ja1ikonia: Ok.10:49
IntuitiveNippleja1: And your point is...? *grin*10:49
atlefHeLLzSpaWn: virtualbox-ose module for linux-image-2.6.24-20-generic10:49

ikoniaHexus: uname -r to be specific and "fussy" about it10:51
ActionParsnipCorpseFeeder: strange, ive seen mouse clicks vanish in compiz, does it happen for other users?10:51
atlefHeLLzSpaWn: under administration menu, open users und groups, unlock, and manage groups and add your user to the vboxusers10:51
CorpseFeederActionParsnip: I can click the left button and drag to draw a box around multiple icons to select them that way, so the button is obviously not broken.. but if I try to single or double-click anything it is as if there is no icon there.10:52
atlefHeLLzSpaWn: press properties and check your name10:52
IntuitiveNippleCorpseFeeder: Yes, it is caused when an applicatoin has grabbed mouse focus but you've moved away or it got confused before releasing it... sometimes random actions clears it but figure those out is... random :)10:52
HeLLzSpaWnatlef: ok and what about the /root?10:53
HeLLzSpaWnleave that as is?10:53
ja1ikonia: Should I prefere to keep stuff as modules instead of compiling them into the kernel? I always used to compile the stuff I need into the kernel, so thats pretty much an answer why I want to fiddle. In previous kernels I had less problems with stuff by compiling in kernel. Maybe that has changed. (Im not upto date)10:53
atlefHeLLzSpaWn: yes leave as is10:53
ja1mct_u232 up and running! Thanks.10:53
ikoniaja1 leave it as modular, don't recompile your kernel, let ubuntu people with more time and skill do it for you10:53
CorpseFeederIntuitiveNipple: I was thinking that too.. but it seems to happen at random and I can't identify what app is doing it. The only way I've found to fix it is to reboot the computer :(10:53
IntuitiveNippleja1: Ubuntu is modular, if you want to know the exact kernel config look in /boot/config*  files - those are the options each kernel version used when building10:54
ja1ikonia: If I dont fiddle, I get no skill. I got time.10:54
ja1as do you10:54
ActionParsnipCorpseFeeder: no idea man, websearching is proving fairly fruitless so far10:54
ikoniaja1: just be aware you'll lose support if you build your own kernel10:54
ja1ikonia: I never had support for my previous linux systems.10:54
ikoniaja1: yet your in here asking for support.10:55
IntuitiveNippleCorpseFeeder: I had it happen some time ago, can't remember now what app it was, but it turned out to be the way I was interacting with it... me being too fast, or it getting hung up on doing something when it ought to have been detecting the release the action10:55
HeLLzSpaWnatlef: synaptic wont let me install virtualbox-ose module for linux-image-2.6.24-20-generic10:55

atlefHeLLzSpaWn: well, your kernel is probably .19 and not .2010:58
HeLLzSpaWnso after that finishes downloading/installing i should be able to boot up the VM with xp?10:58

HeLLzSpaWnatlef: how do i install that one? dunno how to install anything in linux if its not through synaptic:P11:21
atlefHeLLzSpaWn: its a deb package, so you will get the choise to open it when you press download11:22
airtonixHeLLzSpaWn, there is no need to download the files atlef is suggesting, merely follow the advice the pormpt gave you : sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ose-modules-generi11:22
airtonixHeLLzSpaWn, sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ose-modules-generic11:22
smm289HeLLzSpaWn in synaptic I beleive you just have to grab the ose-guest-module-generic 24.0611:23
SmegzorI have a lot of packages for the game Wesnoth that are being held back and I don't know how to get rid of them/cancel them.  They got there because I ran an installer from playdeb.org.  How do I get rid of them?11:23
HeLLzSpaWnlet me do what airtonix is saying11:23
atlefairtonix: he tried that, but it did not seem to work11:23
smm289ok, also when your done doing that, you need to add yourself to the virtualbox user group11:23
airtonixHeLLzSpaWn, you may also benefit from reading the pages on help.ubuntu.com/community11:23
atlefHeLLzSpaWn: oh, you need to restart11:23
hsv4lyfokay i have worked out how to decompress the gz file11:23
atlefHeLLzSpaWn: forgot to mention that11:24
HeLLzSpaWnah...i didnt restart:P11:24
MonkActionParsnip: done! now what?11:24
HeLLzSpaWnlet me see if that fixes it before doing anything else11:24
hsv4lyfhow do I install the driver?11:24
airtonixhsv4lyf, if you search google for "ubuntu Atheros AR5007EG" you will find a guide on how to deal with your drivers...although the page is for fesity you still may gain some idea about what to do11:24
airtonixhsv4lyf, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=51282811:24
hsv4lyfsorry didnt mean to say that11:25
airtonixHeLLzSpaWn, all modifications to kernel and its modules require a restart. as those files are only re-read into memory at boot time11:25
hsv4lyfty airtonix11:25
airtonixhsv4lyf, never underestimate the experiences of past users at the ubuntuforums :)11:26
HeLLzSpaWnairtonix: yeah i just thought it would work from the get go...now i know anything that deals with the kernel needs a reboot..thanx for the heads up...i'll reboot now and see if it works11:27

IntuitiveNippledandex: yeah, I was trying to figure out what limits you wanted to change :) Mostly it has to be done via /etc/security/limits.conf - I have read about adjusting run-time limits but it was a long while ago, and I can't remember if it was implemented or not11:33
ActionParsnipdandex: limits in what way?11:33

MrD1atlef, Thank you very much11:39
ActionParsnipMonk: bah, ok try adding the resolutions to your screen section11:40
Zergiuafter an OS update do I have to reinstall drivers?11:40
jribhsv4lyf: build-essential is on the cd.  Not sure about linux-headers-$(uname -r), but they may be as well11:40
ushimitsudokilitel: maybe LMMS? http://lmms.sourceforge.net/11:40
MonkActionParsnip: hmm?11:40
hsv4lyfis there a way i can download kernel headers and the build essential package onto my computer with windows computer and transfer to cd then install onto my linux computer?11:41
ActionParsnipMonk: the link i gave you, check it out. it has extra bits in the screensection which may help,11:41
ActionParsnipMonk: the nvidia driver needs resolution as well as refresh rates setting before it jumps to life11:41
ActionParsnipMonk: as an example11:41
jribhsv4lyf: did you see what I said?11:42
bastid_raZorZergiu; for video drivers? if you did not install them from apt-get or by the restricted manager then yes, after a kernel update.11:42
MonkActionParsnip: I see it. So I should paste that section into my xorg.conf11:43
Bigmack83how do i fond out where a program is installed?11:43
jribhsv4lyf: Your other option is to use synapitc, mark the packages you want for installation and then go to File -> Generate Download Script11:43
ActionParsnipMonk: yeah, well those lines about resolutions etc11:43
jribBigmack83: dpkg -L PACKAGE      but why?11:43
airtonixall: i found the reason, my issue was with font-subpixel-rendering, I needed to change it from full to medium and possibly also change the vrgb order...fonts render properly now11:44
Bigmack83jrib, iinstalled gallery2 for a site and it wants to know where the binary for dcraw is.11:44

IntuitiveNippledandex: Will sysctl help you?11:45
hsv4lyfsynapitc should already be installed in linux shouldn't it11:45
jribhsv4lyf: System -> Administration -> Synaptic.  I would try my first suggestion to you about using the cd though as that would be easier11:46

xompFelix_Krull, I recommend linux, but sometimes support can be a bit slow, especially for easy issues lol. Most people assume you've done no research and refuse to answer an easy question because they feel you should know the answer.12:09
lockexomp, i've found that in ubuntu, people are far more willing to answer beginner questions than in other distros12:09
bazhanglocke, what is the issue12:09
marvxxxi have the problem with a share i mounted (its on a samba server and i try it with a linux samba client) that i cant transfer the files of a directory in a directory. i can create files and directorys. and transfer files...but not directorys. when i try root it works even with the directorys. i mounted the samba share with uid and gid option.12:09
ghaleb__hello, how can I monitor a graph for server load and network traffic ?12:09
HewIf my sound is in use by some application, how do I find out which app it is?12:10
lockebazhang, my keyboard was broken for a few days and i was trying to figure out how i could type (reasonably) with just the mouse, but didn't have anything installed to handle the issue as i hadn't anticipated it12:10
hateballI've installed OpenLDAP, and thought I'd verify connectivity. The service is running, but neither port 389 nor 636 is open. What's wrong?12:10
xomplocke, you are correct, given that you're willing to repeat it over 9000 times and wait some few hours :P12:10
IntuitiveNipplexomp: The key thing is, anyone providing support here is doing it out of kindess and a willingness to help, not because they are required to. They have done their own research and expect others to do so, too12:10
lockeso I'm trying to figure out how I would handle it if it happens again, so I can be ready in case12:10
Felix_Krullxomp: Do you know the answer to my problem? I just lost autostart for cd/dvd and sd. However, usb-memory is fine in that respect.12:11
lockeIntuitiveNipple, exactly, but most ubuntu users are much more friendly than users of all other distros i've been into in the past12:11

Ziroday!flash > pho3nix12:12
ubottupho3nix, please see my private message12:12
IntuitiveNipplelocke: As long as the shared-support ethos continues it will be good - the problem will come if large numbers of users expect others to provide help and don't give anything back in return.12:12
lockebazhang, thanks, i'm gonna check it out right now12:13
IntuitiveNippleFelix_Krull: Is that happening after restarting the PC?12:13
hsv4lyfokay i found the build essential on the cd, when i went to install it i couldnt continue with the installation as i dont have a internet connection12:13
lockeIntuitiveNipple, absolutely, that's why I like to hang out in the channels and help with what I can, because others have done the same for me12:13
xompFelix_Krull, did the autorun for the cd/dvd work in the past for the cd/dvd? I have some cd/dvd's that have an autorun, but those are 99% windows autorun's :)12:13
IntuitiveNipplelocke: Yeah, it gets you that way :)12:14
Felix_KrullIntuitiveNipple: At the beginning, just after installing 8.40, everything was fine -- cd/dvd and sd autostarted in Nautilus. Than, just suddenly, they stop to behave nicely...12:14
lockeIntuitiveNipple, I can't help it, it would make me feel really bad to not give back at least something to the community..  even though I can be a moron sometimes, I still try to give something back12:15
bazhanglocke, IntuitiveNipple please continue chat elsewhere12:15
pho3nixScore! Ty ty!12:15
Felix_Krullxomp: As I just said...12:15
alexhqCould someone produce me a set of netflow v9 packets please (needed for testing purposes)?12:15
IntuitiveNippleFelix_Krull: usually, automounting stops working during a session due to problems with nautilus gnome-mount... logging out will often clear the issue, but sometimes user processes don't stop as expected so logging-in again the same ones are used and the issue continues.12:15
