killa_does any one have solutions for choppy flash playback in firefox - ubuntu 8.0400:23
x_linkI just have a question.00:24
x_linkI installed Kubuntu on my laptop that I bought today.00:24
x_linkI did something right now and the speaker-icon next to the clock dissapeared.00:24
x_linkHow can I get it back?00:24
cosmofieldx_link: kmix00:25
x_linkcosmofield: Okey, will take a look.00:26
x_linkcosmofield: Thanks00:26
x_linkcosmofield: I have another problem.00:27
x_linkI can't get any sound.00:27
x_linkOn my new laptop.00:27
x_linkWhen I have the mousepointer over the speaker-icon it says that the volume is on max and I see a picture of a headphone.00:27
x_linkBut I don't get any sound at all.00:27
x_linkCard: HDA Intel00:28
x_linkChip: Realtek ALC861-VD00:28
x_linkView: [Playback] Capture All00:28
x_linkThat's what alsamixer says.00:28
x_linkAnd I use Kubuntu Gutsy. A guy just told me that this card is not supported in Gutsy. But can that really be true?00:28
cosmofieldx_link: true, in hardy it is working ootb, I have the same sound card in my laptop00:29
x_linkcosmofield: Wow, that's really not good news =/00:30
x_linkcosmofield: So I can't do anything about it at all except from re-installing?00:30
Denise<richardbh> ok..i updated various things today. Does anyone else have little sparkly noises play whenever you open, close, minimise or maximise something?00:31
cosmofieldx_link: it is easy to get it work, I just edited a config file, don't remember exactly00:31
x_linkOkey, in Gutsy+00:32
x_linkOr do I really have to install Hardy?00:32
Deniseit is ok00:32
cosmofieldx_link: you need to recompile alsa, there's various howto guides covering that sound card in gutsy00:33
x_linkcosmofield: Okey, I REALLY suck on this.00:33
x_linkI really don't know much about Linux and absolutly not about compiling.00:33

Denisewhat is wrong00:35
chris_fosterI dont think that it should stay at the same exact temp all the time, because one of my sensors works and it varies alot00:36
x_linkcosmofield: Wouldn't a newer kernel help?00:36
Denisemen things00:37
x_linkWhich is the newest kernel för Kubuntu Gutsy?00:39
x_linkIs it 2.6.22-14-generic?00:39
cosmofieldx_link: may I ask why do you use gutsy anyway? :/00:39
x_linkcosmofield: I don't know =)00:40
Denisefor the guts00:40
cosmofieldx_link: there's one site with info about re-compile alsamixer  http://www.masclat-micros.com/alc861vd.htm00:40
x_linkThere were some things that I didn't like in Hardy. But I don't remember which things. Was a couple of months ago I used Linux.00:40
x_linkcosmofield: Okey, thanks will take a look. But I don't know how to compile.00:41
=== sedde is now known as x_link

bdizzleokay, I realize C++ makes .exe files, but is there a C++ compiler that I can use in Kubuntu, then run wine to run the programs?02:31
bdizzleI've got a programming class next semester and I don't have enough penguin water to purify myself after booting up into the windows partition of my computer02:31
ctwbdizzle: you can make linux executables with C++02:33
dr_willisC++ dosent really make .exe files.. it compiles code.. :)02:33
dr_willisunder windows the compiled code has .exe extension02:34
dr_willisThere are Compilers for Linux. bdizzle02:34
bdizzleokay, so then then what would be a program in Kubuntu that will compile code into both .exe and its equivalent command-line file in linux?02:35
dr_willisgcc can do cross compilation.02:35
dr_willisand ive never done it.. so thats about all i know on the topic.02:35
bdizzleok, at least its a start for me to look into02:36

lovreon my ext3 partition (not the one with OS), there is a folder lost+found. It is allways empty. Can i delete this folder?03:08

LeeJunFanI guess it's my turn to ask for help instead of always just giving :p... I got a new HD, it's too big for my bios to handle (over 137G), and I've never tackled this problem before. I thought after the system was booted linux rather than the bios handled it, but even now booting from USB it says sda is only 137G. I have a feeling it's the sda stuff in ubuntu ignoring my boot params for cyl,head,sec03:18
nicodarious_LeeJunFan: it sounds like you have two options03:18
LeeJunFanbetter than none.03:19
nicodarious_LeeJunFan: one, partition off your hdd to be smaller than 137GB per partition or check to see if you can get a bios update that supports more than 317GB03:19
DaskreecHI Konkur03:19
nicodarious_LeeJunFan: what kind of computer is it that it's installed in?03:19
nicodarious_as far as is it IDE HDD or is it a SATA HDD?03:20
nicodarious_how old is the bios (check the date on the bios boot screen or in the bios setup), or how old is the computer?03:20
LeeJunFannicodarious_: it's an IDE hd, in a laptop which offers no bios upgrade for that.03:20
nicodarious_what kind of laptop and what model #?03:21
LeeJunFanThat's the thing, the laptop is only about 4 years old, so 3 years older than ATA-6, I guess they skimped.03:21
LeeJunFannicodarious_: it's a sager, actually a rebranded clevo d470k03:21
nicodarious_quite possibly03:21
nicodarious_ok.  brb03:21
nicodarious_btw, i am on a Sager right now too ;)03:21
LeeJunFannicodarious_: cool, thanks for your help. I have it partitioned right now with 30G NTFS, 10G /, so / is under the 137, but it's inside an extended that encompases space beyond what it can reach.03:23
LeeJunFanI partitioned the drive while it was hooked up via a usb/ide adapter, which of course got all the sizes right. copied all my stuff over with rsync, installed grub, etc. boot and it complains about access beyond reach.03:24
nicodarious_LeeJunFan: i'm looking thru my websites right now to see if i can find something for your hardware03:25
nicodarious_LeeJunFan: since it's a rebrand, there might be somewhere else that has the bios update, (possibly)03:25
LeeJunFanyeah, I've looked, unfortunately they do a good job hiding their bios updates.03:26
nicodarious_http://www.hypersonic-pc.com/aviator-notebooks/aviator-sr7-pictures.html   for right now, this is a link to what mine looks like, although i didn't buy it from hypersonic03:30
nicodarious_LeeJunFan: are you ready to recieve a file?03:32
nicodarious_i have found a bios update to 2.0203:32
LeeJunFannicodarious_: probably not - behind a firewall.03:32
nicodarious_let's try at least.03:32
nicodarious_i'm behind a firewall also.03:32

LeeJunFanactually I've already got 202.03:34
LeeJunFan204 even, but I think that one is funky on this system.03:34
nicodarious_go down towards the bottom and grab the files from the main post there.03:34
anger_Somebody have the Firefox updated to 3.0.3?03:35
LeeJunFannicodarious_: thanks, I actually have all those. I'm pretty sure I had issues with 2.04 and am running 2.02 now. I'm going to check the zips for changelogs.03:36
nicodarious_ok, well i know the 2.04 is only an alpha release, so it may be best to stay with 2.0203:36
LeeJunFanI still think it's the libata-pata drivers that are screwing me, I should be able to tell the kernel how to treat the HD from grub with hda= or ide.core.chs= but it seems to ignore it.03:36
nicodarious_but really, i would change your partition table on your 250GB drive (or whatever the size is).  it may be the easiest route03:37
nicodarious_LeeJunFan: i don't know enough about that to tell.  sorry....  i'm actually here for my own problems too, lol03:37
nicodarious_LeeJunFan: my suspend won't come to resume on my system03:38
LeeJunFannicodarious_: does it at least try? I've found I always have problems with framebuffer when it comes to suspend/resume and have to use vga=normal boot param.03:38
nicodarious_had it working last night, but for some reason, it's no longer working now that i cleaned up my Desktop lol.  go figure lol03:39
nicodarious_LeeJunFan: hmmm..  well, i have FB enabled.03:39
nicodarious_maybe i ought to try it with it disabled03:39
LeeJunFanI think there's a page detailing some of that.03:39
ubottuInformation about changing your framebuffer modes in GRUB can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/FrameBuffer#grub03:39
nicodarious_it tries to come out of suspend, but i get a black screen (LCD backlight though) but also no USB.  also, i checked the logs and the wifi card (iwl4965) is hanging before i hit the shutdown key03:40
nicodarious_all this MIGHT be caused by the framebuffer holding up the video from coming up, but i'm not sure.  i know that when it did work for a while, the wifi had trouble reconnecting to the net (took about 30 secs to register and reconnect)03:42
nicodarious_i'll try out the fb problem first.03:42
LeeJunFanyeah, if not maybe having suspend remove the wireless module first.03:43
nicodarious_LeeJunFan: brb.  going to try rebooting without fb and then try suspend.03:43
nicodarious_LeeJunFan: yeah, that's already set within /etc/default/acpi-support file under MODULES to stop before suspend03:44

nicodarious_emmanuel: i would suggest going to your synaptic manager and downloading swf player or something.05:04
emmanuelIm watching it directly from youtube05:04
emmanuelI got the swf player installer and running05:04
emmanuelits installed and running, sorry05:05
nicodarious_kylose: ok then, brb.  i think i have a website about setting up a raid in Ubuntu.05:05
kylosemuch appreciated05:05
nicodarious_emmanuel: have you installed Flashplayer also from synaptic?05:05
emmanuelthats right05:05
emmanuelall from synaptic05:05
nicodarious_kylose: you're suing 8.04, right?05:06
nicodarious_kk.  brb.05:06
kyloseall drived have ext3 on them using gparted05:06
nicodarious_ok, emmanueli would now suggest to uninstall swf OR flashplayer.05:06
nicodarious_kylose: that's your first no no05:06
emmanuelok, then?05:07
nicodarious_kylose: delete ALL partitions on the drives05:07
nicodarious_kylose: do not partition the drives.  the raid setup will partition them for you in it's own special way05:07
emmanueland then? Do I have to install again?05:07
kylosenic: all partitions are now deleted05:08
nicodarious_when i set mine up, my raid 0, i used lvm characteristics on the drives.05:09
nicodarious_i'm trying to find that lvm site now, so to hand it down to you and so i don't get anything wrong05:10

kyloseset up my first samba share05:11
kylosewow this tutorial is way better than anything i've seen so far05:12
nicodarious_hey, no prob!05:12
nicodarious_emmanuel: ok, back to your prob.05:13
nicodarious_emmanuel: kylose's problem was a pretty easy fix. so i dealt with it quick.  yours on the other hand is a little more in depth i think05:14
emmanuelok tellme05:14
nicodarious_emmanuel: as far as your player goes, i think there MIGHT be a conflict of interest between the two players.05:14
nicodarious_i would suggest getting rid of one.05:14
emmanuelah, ok05:14
emmanuelso I have to uninstall one of them?05:15
nicodarious_also, see if you can get the latest player and install that thru Firefox or something. a great place that i go to is the nvidia website since they like pretty flash stuff on their website.05:15
nicodarious_i would suggest uninstalling all flash players for now.05:16
nicodarious_then installing one, or installing one thru firefox by visiting a flash-made site, like nvidia.com05:16
emmanuelok, I m gonna try it!05:16
nicodarious_that's the only thing i can think of myself....  right now i'm trying to deal with my own problematic hardware and suspend mode system...  so sorry if i can't be of TOO much help lol05:17
emmanuelthanks body, this support its awesome!05:17
nicodarious_emmanuel: good luck05:17
emmanueland apologize my english!05:17
nicodarious_emmanuel: no problem.  you're spanish, right?05:18

treyjust curious if this was something that's normal?05:54
geniimcine: No, but there are many around who would boot you for being crude in here05:54
geniitrey: Not normal. Usually if it can't decide the card, goes with safe option like vesa05:54

geniitrey: You can install package pastebinit   and then do like:      lsmod | pastebinit06:07

genii(this may take a minute or so)06:11
treyso what's the command to pastebinit?06:12
treyi did the first part.06:12
treybut what do put in here to submit it?06:13

treylearn something new every day.06:14
geniiRather than copy/paste from in Konsole, etc etc06:14
treyyeah, so what's the next step?06:14
geniitrey: It should have told you a web address, tell us what thst is, then we go there to see the result and examine it06:14
geniitrey: This prevents flooding of the channels here06:15
treyk. i'm assuming you're talking about the command i just did. let me look.06:15

paulandsarai have not06:24
=== hayden is now known as sloik
paulandsaracan i get that thru the add apps06:25
o0Chris0oyou should already have it in kubuntu06:25
geniibyteme_: The file called secondlife. So if you have it in a folder called Bleh    on your desktop and your username is Foo then it is:  /home/Foo/Desktop/Bleh/secondlife06:25
byteme_Amarok rocks06:25
paulandsarai have ubuntu are they the same(im sorry really new)06:25
o0Chris0o!amarok | paulandsara06:25
ubottupaulandsara: Amarok is an audio player for Linux with an intuitive interface. The latest version is 1.4.8 (1.4.3 for Dapper LTS). Packages are available for Kubuntu at www.kubuntu.org See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Amarok06:25
byteme_works great with the MP3 players06:25
o0Chris0oheh that needs to be updated06:25
paulandsarathats not exactly what im looking for.....im looking for something i can record mp3 for my band06:26
geniitrey: We need to decide if r128 driver is best or another like stock one called "ati" or possibly to install later "fglrx" proprietary driver. Then to edit the xorg.conf file to reflect this change06:26
geniitrey: However I'm finding little in the way of info regarding this06:27
treygenii: i'm sure you'd know better than i would. i'm a n00b. :P06:27
byteme_genii: sorry for my ignorance, but I cant find a 'SecondLife' file in the whole SecondLife folder other than the one that only opens up in Kate06:28

sloikchull: Does that mean I can't?06:29
sloikchull: Or that it's difficult?06:30

treyi tried looking up something to help me out and i got a lot of crap that made no sense.06:32
chullthere are all kinds of things out there..06:32
chulltrey, what were you trying to find?06:32
byteme_ha, yeah same here. I even get told to give commands that 'my' system says 'bad command or file name'06:33
treyi'm having screen resolution issues. mainly that it's only giving one option (800x600 i think) and that's driving me crazy since half the screen is missing sometimes.06:34
byteme_and thats at the begining, so where the heck do you go from there?   lol06:34
treyi think it has something to do with my video card.06:34
chullbyteme_, we are all guessing to a point because your system and mine are probably different to start with06:34
geniibyteme_: Usually 1 of 3 things when you d/l and unpack:  1- it's binaries are there ready to run in which case instructions I gave work    2 - You need to run some installer script usually by way like:  sh ./thefilename      3- It's in source code and you need to go an entirely different and messy route.  Probably 2 since 1 seems not06:34
geniitrey: I'm still working on it, gimme some time06:35
treyk. i'm in no hurry. sleep isn't important. :)06:35

treyi think i have less hair too. :D06:37
byteme_cool, thanks06:37
chullcan anyone help with finding sound cards?06:38
byteme_average lifespan of a computer programer is 5006:38
tuxwulfI am counting down to 8.1006:38
geniitrey: Hmm. Research indicates r128 is indeed best driver for your card and supports other resolutions than 600x800     I'm thinking now it may not know what your monitor can do06:38
byteme_and they know what they are doing06:38
chulllol byteme_ my husband had a stroke, but he's still alive06:38
treygenii: i've had other resolutions so i'd assume it can do them again.06:39
chullgenii, does it have the right setting in the bios setup?06:39
chullmy husband's monitor was hard to set it for06:39
byteme_There is just something about PC's that make the blood pressure sky-rocket06:39
geniitrey: Will your monitor do 1024x768 at 60 or 70 ?06:41
treyi think that's what i had it at when i was running my Mac OS.06:41
treysomething tells me my blood pressure is about to go up. lol06:42
* trey listens to the crickets outside his window06:44
geniitrey: OK. Please do:   cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | pastebinit                      and then:  sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup              then I will make another entry regarding your monitor settings in there. Then I will instruct you further on how to apply these changes06:44
geniiOK, back shortly06:45
treykk, i need some water anyways.06:46
geniitrey: Actually, do know exact make/model of monitor? Then I can exactly define it's refresh settings06:46
genii(although even without this info I can choose some safe numbers)06:47
treyumm, the stuff on the back of the monitor says it's a ProView, product number: PRO-720, Model: 77206:49

Guest74883hi, do you know, why i cant open fish:// protocol in kde now, and i was able to do it before update to 8.04?09:38
thefishGuest74883: try just ssh://09:38
joselindoyes, right now im trying to experiment on my kubuntu, newbie09:38
Guest74883thefish, same problem09:38
thefishGuest74883: using dolphin?09:39
Guest74883quanta this time09:39
joselindotry it in adept manager09:39
Guest74883worng paste09:39
thefishGuest74883: fish:// works fine here :)09:39
thefishnot sure about quanta09:39
Guest74883thefish and i have problem here09:39
thefishah Guest74883, can i make a suggestion?09:40
Guest74883thefish, sure09:40
thefishits not exactly what you are asking, but it will solve your problem, and can be very useful for non fish:// aware apps09:40
thefishget hold of sshfs09:40
thefishits a fuse filesystem for ssh09:40
thefish3 steps to use it:09:40
thefishsudo apt-get install sshfs09:40
thefishsudo adduser Guest74883 fuse (or whatever your kubu username is)09:41
thefishlog out, log in09:41
thefishmkdir -p ~/fusemounts/webserver09:41
thefishsshfs ip.of.bo.x ~/fusemounts/webserver09:41
Guest74883thefish what about storing name and pass?09:42
Guest74883i used kwallet before09:42
thefishGuest74883: this is "below" kde and doesnt really involve it, so i dont think you could use kwallett09:42
thefishyou could use public key auth, and then use something like kdessh to store the passphrase in wallet though09:43
=== [vaio|tt] is now known as [sexy|vaio_tt]
thefishbut with sshfs, the remote files look exactly the same as local ones, its mounted as a local filesystem09:43
Guest74883thefish, so it is nearly useless for me, it would be really painfull to type 20 times a day, long, 14 chars passwords09:43
thefishso you can edit stuff in place etc09:43
thefishGuest74883: then read what I said about certificate logins09:44
thefishif you even just use ssh-agent, you put one passphrase in to unlock your private key, and then log in without passwords for as long as its cached09:45
thefishsame idea as kdewallet09:45
Guest74883thefish, thanks, that is one way, but i think i have problem with KIOslave09:45
thefishjust not as dependant on kde09:45
thefishdo it that way, and you can only use apps that implement the fish kioslave09:46
Guest74883by the way, how can i install kde3?09:50

thefishno idea msshams, sorry10:00
msshamsthefish: i used to gnome for 4 years10:01
msshamsthefish: please tell me that can i move to kde without any problem?10:01
thefishnothing to be ashamed of :)10:01
andypls1hello i have a question with thunderbird10:02
msshamsthefish: e.g. can i find all gnome applications in kde?10:02
thefishandypls1: dont ask if you can ask10:02
thefishmsshams: yes gnome apps will still work in kde10:02
andypls1well... i have created to accounts10:02
andypls1one for my A email, and one for my B email10:02
andypls1however, on the leftside of thunderbird, i can only see the options for my A email, which is the default. i can't see anything for my B email10:03
thefishmsshams: beware though, some gtk apps look very ugly in kde10:03
andypls1so, i can see if i have new emails for B on "get email"10:03
andypls1but i can't click in inbox, as i do with the A email10:03
andypls1what should i do?10:03
andypls1i want B to be displayed right below A10:04
thefishandypls1: sorry not sure, but when i used tb i had 4 accounts working like you say, and it was fine10:04
thefishandypls1: maybe you are using the "Global Inbox"?10:04
andypls1yes i am10:04
sorush20hi, I;m always getting error in my iso writing10:04
sorush204 speed cdrw10:05
thefishandypls1: thats why it all gets delivered to 1 inbox, the "Global Inbox"10:05
sorush20iso sumcheck okay but cd sumcheck bad10:05
andypls1how do i change that?10:05
andypls1A problably uses something like "global" inbox10:06
andypls1sorry local i mean10:06
andypls1B is global10:06
thefishandypls1: cant remember exactly, but check under the account properties, and make sure *neither* of them use this - this will give you 2 inboxes like you want10:06

jussi01downhillgames: it does kind of answer your question, because you can create a live cd with all your bits an peices then install it when you need.12:19
downhillgamesthat still does not answer my question. I want to create a package that installs some files, installs some packages and removes a lot of extras. that's *still* easier to maintain than a whole liveCD and, in theory, should be less work.12:20
downhillgamesI have a goal, I have a method, I'm just asking for the documentation for the method so I can see how much effort it will really be.12:20
jussi01downhillgames: ok, I can point you to the packaging guide if you like...12:21

devocan someone help me before i break this damn computer19:04
izzybdevo, start firefox from the commnad line and see if it leaves an error message when it crashes19:05
JuJuBeeizzyb : not sure they are dells.19:05
devoi don't start from the terminal, i have the firefox icon on my desktop19:05
devoi click on that19:05
JuJuBeeHow can I check from cli?19:05
devoi don't know how to19:05
devoi'm new with use'n linux, srry19:05
izzybJuJuBee, I'm not sure what the problem is, but was thinking maybe video driver issue, but then you can move the mouse around...19:06
devoi only have used linux for the past 3 to 4 week's and still can't do the damn command line's right19:06
JuJuBeeI can ssh to the workstations and run commands just fine also.19:06
devoor anything right for that matter19:06
cosmofielddevo: open a terminal and write firefox and press enter19:06
JuJuBeeizzyb : uptime and top on workstations reveal nothing unusual.19:06
devok hold on19:07
izzybJuJuBee, yeah, the problem is with kde crashing somehow, but I'm not sure what.  the kernel is still in control if you can switch virtual terminals and ssh19:07
izzybI've had locks in xwindows where the keyboard and mouse hung but I could still ssh19:08
devook i did type in firefox but nothing is comeing up19:08
JuJuBeeI can't keep restarting the server to fix this... I have one computer that is still 7.10 and it has same problem.  Never saw this last year.19:08
devon/m it is comeing up now but slow as hell19:08
izzybrestarting the server fixes it?19:09
JuJuBeeTHought it might have been NIS or NFS (use both) but they can log into tty2 and see their docs and edit them.19:09
devoi don't get why my internet connection is slow as hell, can anyone help me out with that?19:09
JuJuBeeYes. restarting the server fixes it.19:09
izzyboh, maybe nfs...19:09
JuJuBeeHow can I check?19:10
devowtf now everything is frezz'n but this i don't get it, wtf!!!!!!!!!!19:10

JuJuBeeK thanks19:10
devoi hate be'n a person that don't know much about linux on top of that no one will help me out either that's fucked up big time!!!!!!19:11
cosmofieldAre you using any firefox plugins, try to inactivate some of them, if that's not helping then try to reinstall firefox19:12
devoyeah ppl help me here and there but they don't help me out when i really do need it, there help'n out other ppl in which im in need of help, just like the rest of the ppl that r in here that do ask for help but do i get it no'19:12
devoi don't know any command line's i am us to window's not linux so u try to tell me to do someth'n with out tell'n how, i'm not gonna be able to do it cuz linux is hard as hell to learn espectially when a person like me has a learning disibility19:13
devoand they say that linux is the best os out there, i am start'n to think that's bullshit19:14
cosmofielddevo: that's depends on what you mean with best. :)19:16
Maxais there a !command for that windows != linux page...19:17
ubottuWant to know the differences between Windows and Linux? This guide, called "Linux is Not Windows" is a pretty good read -- http://linux.oneandoneis2.org/LNW.htm19:18
devoif ppl r tell'n me that linux is the best os out there today with it be'n very secure and stuff then ppl like me wouldn't be out in the dark for ask'n for help and on top of that u have to fix this u have to fix that in linux why can't linux not be such a pain in the ass to learn by urself when no one does help u at all even if u ask for it19:18
Daisuke_Idodevo: yes, it's different.  you're going to have to do things differently, and YES, you're going to have to learn at least a little bit concerning the terminal19:19
devoi hate window's, windows can kiss my fat ass19:19
Daisuke_Idoif you're just looking for a free windows, this isn't what you're looking for19:19
Daisuke_Idoby the way, watch your language, this is an all-ages channel19:19
MrKenniedevo: I understand your frustration but you need to calm down somewhat.19:19
devowell that's what happend's when i get mad19:19
devoi will once i know that ppl in here will help me out more19:20
Daisuke_Idoyou need to state problems clearly19:20
devoi hate it when i ask for help and all i get is nothing19:20
devoi have that happen to me all the time and i hate it19:20
Daisuke_Idoand coming in saying something doesn't work isn't clear.19:20
Daisuke_Idoand guess what, everyone here is a volunteer19:20
devoi have tried19:20
Daisuke_Idoa lot of us have other things going on - for instance, i'm leaving in about two minutes to go to class19:21
devohave fun19:21
devonow u tell me that i should know more about the termial, am i right?19:22
Maxaso you type firefox.. and nothing happens, right?19:22
devothen were can i learn about the termial without haven to ask about it then???19:22
MrKenniedevo: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal19:22
devoi did type in firefox and the internet connection was very slow19:23
devothnx i'll take a look @ it in a min or 219:23
MrKenniedevo: what is it you need the terminal for anyway?19:23
Maxadoes it crash when you use flash, like youtube...?19:23
devoso i don't have to keep on ask'n ppl for help and they tell me to do anything about the terminal, then i'll know what they r talk'n about.19:24
devoi have flash on firefox so i don't know if that's the problem or not19:24
MrKenniedevo: OK, just take things one step at a time and be patient if you get stuck and want to ask a question here :)19:25
devoand i don't go onto youttube all the time just once in a blue moon19:25
devoi do think that i'm being very patient rite now, what  do u think?19:25
MrKenniewell, you got the guide. Have fun with ubuntu19:26
devobut then what about learning the terminal command's?19:26
izzybdevo, you don't have to worry about learning the terminal commands all at once.  it's something that happens over time19:27
MrKenniedevo: you really don't need to become an expert at it as most things can be acheived graphically nowadays. Some knowledge will go a long way however.19:28
devoso what's a really good web bowser that wont crash ahole lot19:28
izzyband you'll find people are more responsive to your problems when you are patient.  keep in mind that most people are doing other things on the side while in here so it may take a moment or so for someone to respond19:28
izzybyes it sucks, but that's how it works.19:28
devokool, thnx19:29
izzybas for running firefox from the terminal, the reason is you'll usually get output in the terminal window when you run programs that way19:29
devofor the info19:29
devooh ok19:29
izzybso, did you get firefox to run from the command line?19:29
devoi didn't know that19:29
devoi don't know, i didn't run it yet, but i will now19:29
cosmofielddevo: do you using any plugins or extensions with firefox? Try to disable them and see if the problem still exists19:30
izzybyou don't need to be an expert in terminal, just be prepared to run commands when people ask you to19:30
izzybyou don't need to know what they do even.  its just how people can best help you19:30
devook i'm run'n firefox in the terminal19:30
devoi know there's a flash plugin but i don't know about anything else though19:31
izzybare you going to sites with flash when it crashes?19:31

JuJuBeeizzyb : yes, running nfs.  I export /home and workstations boot from local HD.  Use NIS for login and NFS for documents on server.19:43

izzybdevo, I'd try googling that line with quotes and see what it gives you19:43
devoi did and nothing came up19:44
twylightso nobody can help me19:44
twylightthis is great19:44
izzybJuJuBee, I'm thinking it could be nfs hanging causing the problem.  as a test, maybe try copying one of the users home dirs to the local workstation and don't mount nfs on it19:44
ubottugoogle is the helpers' friend; many newer users dont have the google-fu yet; For GNU/Linux:  http://google.com/linux19:44
izzybJuJuBee, I'm not an expert on nfs, but know it can cause locking issues.  which nfs server are you running?19:45

izzybdevo, hmm, well, that's your starting point.  perhaps there's a missing module or something.  btw, what firefox are you running?19:50

=== kabotage is now known as kabo
izzybJuJuBee, I wouldn't use the local admin to test, you need to duplicate the environment as much as possible so I'd unmount /home on one of the workstations and rsync one of the users home folders to the local workstation and run that way for that user and see if it crashes19:52
izzybcat /etc/exports19:53

bbeckTwylight: can you put the complete output of running on pastebin? (http://paste.ubuntu.com)19:53

izzybdevo, at the command line did you type firefox or firefox-2?19:53
izzybwhat does help/about in firefox say?19:53
JuJuBeeBut for some reason it is listed 2x19:54
izzybJuJuBee, exactly the same line both times?19:54
devoi did firefox19:54
izzybhmm, comment out one of them19:54
JuJuBeeJust commented out one19:54
izzybdevo, what does the menu help/about say?19:55
izzybyeah, you shouldn't be exporting it twice with the same options.  could be the problem19:55

izzybJuJuBee, This is what I use for my home export:  rw,sync,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check19:56
Twylightnow it's neither running nor inactive, but some state of in between19:56
JuJuBeeWhat is teh no_subtree_check for?19:57
Twylighttherefore the program is not working, but the administration directory is still locked, preventing my access19:57
devon/m it's 3.0.219:57
izzybdevo, doesn't it have the firefox version number in help/about?19:57
izzyboh, ok19:57

izzybtry uninstalling firefox 3.x and install 2.x and see if that helps?19:57
izzybif you don't mind the downgrade that is19:58
Twylightthe question I've been asking for the last 30 minutes, is what is the command that will fix this problem, because I've dealt with this before, I know what the problem is but I need to know what to put into the terminal to fix it19:58
JuJuBeeizzyb : can I restart nfs on client and or workstation to regain control?19:58
MrKennieTwylight: try sudo apt-get update and then sudo apt-get -f install19:58
Twylightyou don't get it19:58

TwylightI cannot access it19:58
Twylightit's like chmodding chmod to 55519:59
Twylightalthough not as irreversible19:59
izzybJuJuBee, you mean when theirs a crash.  possibly restarting it on the server would help, but I don't know what the effect of that would be with 14 workstations accessing it19:59
izzybdoes it freeze on all of them at the same time?19:59

JuJuBeeizzyb : the no_subtree_check is default so it was being applied even though I did not specify it.20:23
izzybJuJuBee, I'm just guessing this is nfs related, but that'd be the way to confirm20:23
izzybit's also possible the double entry in exports was causing the problems so maybe no that the server has been rebooted it'll clear up?20:23
