unopdeever, directories under /media are normally only created when a volume is mounted - they disappear as soon as the volume is dismounted or ejected - so if you have a directory that is always present, you ought to remove it and hopefully you shouldn't see it again00:07

ubottudebootstrap is used to create a !Debian or Ubuntu base system from scratch, without requiring the availability of !dpkg or !APT. It does this by downloading !.deb files from a mirror site, and carefully unpacking them into a directory you can eventually !chroot into.  See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebootstrapChroot for more information00:08

bobertdosdeadinside: You really would do well to upgrade to Hardy (and I'd recommend a fresh install).01:00
SecuredAnyone worked with Windows domains before?01:00
deadinsideupgrade as in what..buy something?01:01
sp00ndeadinside, I do not recommend upgrading to Hardy01:01
darkness_hey, I'm trying to play some old AVI files that don't seem to work in VLC, Mplayer, or Totem, (totem says that Intel Indeo 5 was not available or something) Does anybody know how I can play these files? (If not, then I guess I have about 10.6 GB of videos that are virtually useless)01:01
bobertdosdeadinside: especially because Hardy is the second LTS release (Dapper was the first). No, I usually make a live CD from the ISO.01:01
bobertdosdeadinside: fresh installs are MUCH cleaner than direct distro upgrades01:02
deadinsidesounds like gibberish to me.01:02
curtlee2002deadinside: press ALT + F2,  then type "update-manager -d" and press Run01:02

deadinsidei dont even know how to so if i can watch videos then i dont care01:04
sp00nnoway, all of the thing I mentioned above worked flawlessly in 601:04
sp00nnoway, i am seriously pissed here.  i've been at this for 6 hours now, and about a week and a half into it with no results.01:04
bobertdosdeadinside: and yes, given that Hardy has not been our best work, you'd be better off waiting for a month anyway01:04
deadinsidecould u watch videos spoon?01:04
sp00nAs far as I'm concerned, an OS that can't play streaming media through a browser? EPIC FAIL01:04
sp00ndeadinside, I could two years ago01:05
deadinsidei cant right now..and i have never been able to watch vids..ive had this comp for like a year im sick of it01:05
ClutzI used a knoppix live disk to resize a windows partition with gparted on a hard disk to make room for ubuntu. sadly it moved the partition to the left after resizing it and i don't think there is room for grub cause i installed ubuntu and it boots windows anyway. will moving the partition a little to the left (1 or 2 mb) fix this?01:05

ponicgHi all. How can I determine which controller my hard drives are on during an install of ubuntu?01:07
sp00nClutz, you probably can, yes.  Windows overwrites the MBR, which the computer uses to figure out which OS to boot from01:07
sp00nbobertdos, is that new in the past 2 - 3 weeks?01:08
deadinsidesome one said download i386 or something and someone else said push alt f2 or something now ahat01:08
Clutzsp00n: after installing ubuntu it booted to windows anyway, any thoughts?01:08
nowaysp00n firefox 3.03 is really recent01:08
sp00nClutz, you can probably re-setup grub, and add entries to your grub menu to boot your windows installation01:09
curtlee2002Clutz I am sure you can01:09
ponicgI have an NVRaid hard drive that's the same size as one of my other drives that's just SATA by itself, without hte motherboard's raid.  how can I determine which one I'm going to be installing to?01:09
kpomanhi to all guys ! I have a reiser4 fs somewhere in my disk but cant find any kind of support on kernel for it ?01:09
Clutzsp00n: shouldn't ubuntu have installed grub already?01:09
sp00nClutz, I did that today with two different versions of Linux01:09
Phouldoes anyone know of some software that will allow music streaming to a shoutcast server01:10
deadinsideCould not open location 'file:///update manager -d'01:10
deadinsideDetails: The location or file could not be found.01:10
sp00nClutz, correct me if I'm wrong anybody, but I read today that grub installs its first stage into a particular partition.  each time you install an OS, that OS overwrites the MBR, telling it where to find the first stage of grub01:10
Phoulim a online dj amung other things and i cant seem to find anything like that under linux01:10
zewm_Phoul: Have you checked the shoutcast website for a linux based server?01:10
kpomanI get this message: "The volume uses the reiser4 file system which is not supported by your system."01:10
Phoulim not looking for a server01:10
PhoulIm looking for a program to stream to a server01:11
sp00nClutz, so each partition with an OS on it could have its own OS's first stage of grub.  The MBR always points to one particular first stage of grub.01:11
Phoulkinda like M$'s sam, winamp(ick),Traktor01:11
sp00nClutz, (grub is a bootloader commonly used by Linux to choose which partition to boot from)01:11
Clutzsp00n: is it possible that i shrank the mbr?01:11
TricyclethiefHey all anyone able to help with a dual monitor setup for 8.04 and ati video card01:12
curtlee2002Clutz, If you download the Alternative version of the ubuntu CD, it has an MBR grub repair tool,01:12
sp00nClutz, window isn't Linux - friendly, and overwrites the MBR to point to just the windows partition.  But you can do things like run a linux live disc and choose rescue mode, enter a grub command prompt, and set the MBR back the way you want01:12
zewm_Phoul: Check your msgs01:12

Clutzsp00n: windows didn't wipe it out i think though01:14
Clutzsp00n: i installed ubuntu and rebooted, no grub came01:14
TricyclethiefAny ati users out there?01:14
sp00nClutz, I know, but it sounds like the MBR is just pointing to the windows bootstrap loader, and you want it to point to your linux distro's grub01:14
kpomanI know there is a murder on that story and all, but is there a way to get reiser4 working on Ubuntu ?01:14
pibe86hello how cn i see my kernel version?01:14
sp00nClutz, when you run root(your drives) and setup (your drive) in a grub prompt, it tells the MBR what partition to look for the bootloader on01:15
Azerthothkpoman short of dping your own kernel, doesnt sound like it01:15
Clutzsp00n: so, moving my partition to the left as far as it can go isn't the reason?01:15

Clutzsp00n: i booted knoppix live cd and ran gparted, i set it to have 80gb at the end of the partition and didn't realize that it removed the 1 or 2mb it had prior to the partition01:16
Azerthothkpoman do a lsmod, you'll notice that ubuntu loads everything but the kitchen sink by default, if you have no support you'll have to do your own01:16
Clutzsp00n: it moved the entire partition over as far as it would allow01:16

sp00nClutz, I'm trying to make sure you didn't accidentally wipe out a partition, or just verify that your partitions are still set how you had intended them.  I think windows will not detect linux ext type partitions01:19
Clutzsp00n: Disk 0: Partition 1 = 385.76GB NTFS | Partition 2 76.70GB Unknown | Partition 3 3.30GB Unknown01:20

ubottuIodous: The people here are volunteers, your attitude should reflect that. Answers are not always available. See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrcGuidelines01:23

sp00nClutz, k. you should read those pages thoroughly before enacting the steps in them; particularly make sure you know what to do if you get ubuntu back and don't see an option for windows.  based on the info you gave me, I think your windows partition will be in the grub menu as (hd0, 0) and linux partition will be (hd0,1)01:25

curtlee2002pibe86, "update-manager -d"01:32
consoloverpibe86: you need to run "gksudo update-manager -d"01:33
pibe86curtlee2002: i wrote that and nothin happened01:33
curtlee2002pibe86: press ALT + F2,  then type "update-manager -d" and press Run01:33

zambohello folks, I have followed all steps to get ASLA drivers working for my soundcard (which is a Echo Layla3G) but I'm afraid that it doesn't seem to work.  lspci lists it, but "alsactl names" shown no device found, any ideas?01:39
zambothanks :)01:39
curtlee2002well, I am out.   No udev help here01:39
Fishscenepapna, there should be a recursive option (meaning it applies to all files/folders below the directory you specify)01:39
consoloverpapna: "chmod -R 777 /path to folder" but be careful with the -R option01:39
_machi'm downloading the ubuntu iso, does it come ready with GCC/GDB?01:40
onxpapna, you don't want to do that if you care about security though01:40
unop_mach, no, but they're easily installed.01:40
zamboI saw this comment "My problem has now been resolved thanks to iFvwm in the #ubuntu IRC channel - all I had to do was install the linux-ubuntu-modules package for my kernel!", can someone else explain this further?01:40
consoloverpapna: that, based on the principle that you want it readable, writable and executable by everyone01:40
MonkeyManI need some help with firestarter please. I am setting up a wireless network and all goes well until I start up firestarter. I tried putting my ip address from laptop in policies with samba but still does not work. Anytime I wish to connect the network I have to disable firestarter. Any suggestions?01:40
ponicgonx: that didn't return anything. is dmesg enabled during the install or should i boot to the livecd first?01:40
x__I just did a reinstall of hardy and when I got to NBC.com the video loader won't work01:40
unop_mach, all you have to do is select these two packages from add/remove software  build-essential and gdb01:41
papnaconsolover, Fishscene, thanks.01:41
danopia__when i try inserting a SD card into my cardreader, linux complains that it can't mount it01:41
danopia__any ideas?01:41
consoloverpapna: but take a look at man chmod to make it what you want. 6th paragraph explains the meaning of the numbers and what to use based on what you want01:41
onxponicg, i'd try the livecd. tbh sometimes the order of disks switches after install, in that case you'll have to edit your fstab01:42
consoloverdanopia__: does it appear in sudo fdisk -l ?01:42
danopia__consolover, i think so, as /dev/sdf101:43
consoloverdanopia__: also, what exactly does it say? Do you have a button on that warning that gives more output on the reason?01:43

danopia__consolover, somehow it was easily moutned with mount01:47

corexcorecan one run beryl/compiz from the Live-cd to try it out?02:26
FishsceneI'm throwing the idea out there- not saying that it's a solution02:26
carandraugzeroh: this is the strategy I would try (I would also backup if I could) and would be expecting to work. 1- edit Debian's /boot/grub/menu.lst to point to point Ubuntu's kernel, 2-change Debian's /home folder name (to avoid conflict with Ubuntu's home), 3-rsync /var/chroot/ to the partition where you have Debian's /home, 4-edit /boot/grub/menu.lst in the Ubuntu that you just copied, 5- boot to the new copied Ubuntu, 6- delete Debian stu02:26
carandraugff but keep old Ubuntu, 7-boot into old ubuntu, 8-rsync new ubuntu to where was debian and edit menu.lst (again), 9 boot into the newest ubuntu and get rid of all the others02:26

carandraugmontana13: I don't know. I know however that itunes (at least on mac) uses m4a files which are uncommon in Vista. That way, if you search for m4a files, you'll most likely find where the files are kept02:44

khinhey i figured out what is causing that memory issue if not why it should occur: whenever i access the trash under the root filebrowser, not only does nautilus crash and need to be forced to quit, but more and more of my memory is eaten up by some process unlisted in system administration's system monitor. it gradually eats up the entire memory, then returns it later. what the hell!?03:42
jribtyler: right, because of something works fine for you once in the past, it must be safe03:43
airtonixtyler, you needto follow a guide about his in the tips & tutorials section of the ubuntuforums website to be sure you are doing all the rights steps....03:43
journeyerHi Folks, I have a newbee'sh question..03:43
journeyerI need to reinstall the ubuntu hardy LTS with the same set of packages as now. How do I do that ?03:44
Elijah1airtonix: thanks03:44
jrib!cloning | journeyer03:44
ubottujourneyer: To 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 !automate03:44
airtonixkhin, if it is the trash then try emptying it via cli: its here  ~/.local/share/Trash/03:44

journeyeryes, I have my /home/* backed up already. I have somehow screwed up my X config03:46
jrib!info partimage | tyler03:46
ubottutyler: partimage (source: partimage): backup partitions into a compressed image file. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.6.7-1 (hardy), package size 271 kB, installed size 960 kB03:46
journeyerand cannot seem to fix it.03:46
airtonixjourneyer, i suggest partitioning your drive into three portions : 1 for swap, 2 fo system 3 for the home folder03:46
jrib!xconfig | journeyer03:46

GneaClutz: then you did something wrong.03:47
airtonixtyler, the same way you make cd images can be used for making images of your hard drive03:47
ClutzGnea: i install them according to instructions, reboot and after loading bar finishes, i get a black screen03:47

IndoctrineI can't get my printer to work, it keeps telling me there's an "Error while printing", it's on, plugged in, etc. And I've tried downloading and installing the drivers from the Canon driver page for Linux (the .deb ones, not the .rpm) but it still does not work...03:49
samsssairtonix, jrib i did set the folder in the configuration of the virtual machine theres a tab there that says shared folders... but nothing happens...03:49

Indoctrineairtonix: My printer isn't LISTED there.03:51
jrib[Solars]: tried with the .deb from the vbox site/03:52
hell_lordthe more part is, the change was to turn on shmconfig for gsynaptics - and it worked - i restarted X and the change worked.  BUT, this happened after a suspend to disk operation resulted in a hang03:52
[Solars]jrib 32 bit version only runs 32 bit guests.. 64bit runs both03:52

samsssairtonix, i have it on03:52
hell_lordthe _even more_ curious part of it is that the X config complains, but there is absolutely nothing in any logs - and i think because it's read-only :P03:52

hell_lordanyone have any ideas?  the last log message is from yesterday when i closed my laptop lid.  it suspends, and then this morning i opened it and it hung03:55
airtonixIndoctrine, the other option is to use virtualbox to make use of your printer.03:55

airtonixIndoctrine, is it a usb printer?03:57
hell_lordcedriczg: nope.  i would have mounted my root from the livecd and made changes but my root is encrypted in an logical volume :(03:57

ClutzGnea, ok03:57
IshnuI have read that you can telnet an IP adress with a certain port, to determine if that port is open on the target system. But wouldn't this method just work if the target IP adress was using that port for telnet, and not anything else?03:57

ClutzGnea: brb then04:00
Gneajrib: yeah i saw that too - looks like there could be some conflicting drivers installed04:00
jribGnea: meh maybe you are right about it trying to load vesa though04:00
tijuanahi again!04:00
airtonixIndoctrine, keep this aside for reference later on : https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingPrintingProblems04:00
hell_lordcedriczg: but that doesn't explain why the root gets mounted read-only.  this is the big problem.  i removed the read-only on error part from fstab and i am also editing the grub boot line and removing "ro", so i don't see why it's still mounting read-only04:00
airtonixIndoctrine, have you read this : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=55698004:01
hell_lordcedriczg: and in addition mtab is read-only so whenever i try to remount it tells me it's mounted already.04:01
Gneajrib: yeah, vesa has historically given unpleasant results with nvidia equipment, particularly when a framebuffer is involved04:01
Indoctrineairtonix: I have, it didn't work04:01
hell_lordcedriczg: i tried to force it.... and it says it's mounted rw, but it still isn't :-04:01

jribGnea: I have the black screen symptom on my laptop, workaround in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/Nvidia fixes it04:02
airtonixIndoctrine, its pretty much hit and miss until you finf exactly right settings...all i can say is good luck with your hunting04:02

hell_lordcedriczg: the easiest way is probably to right click the file and go to properties04:06
airtonixIndoctrine, you dont have much choice though04:06
Indoctrineairtonix: I did look in there, but it wasn't actually listed04:06
jribTim__: reboot and choose recovery mode from the grub menu.  Then choose to boot into a "root shell".  Lastly, issue the command 'passwd YOUR_USERNAME_HERE' and reboot04:06
Indoctrineairtonix: I might take my dad's printer, it's older and probably better supported.04:07
hell_lordcedriczg: i think you can do it there.  but if not you can also probably find a way to do it using gconf-editor04:07
cedriczghell_lord, well... it's not a file, it's a new device04:07
jribsmelian: I don't know.04:07
tijuanaI managed to install RutilT (the GUI for my wireless adapter) but when I load it instead of characters I only see squares :S04:07

hell_lordcedriczg: ah, i see.04:07
cedriczghell_lord, gconf-editor might be the way04:07

smelianany one know where is the probem i find my usb modem inside dmesg | tail and i dont see it when i use lsusb04:07
cedriczghell_lord, which is the permission on root files for you 400 ?04:08
airtonixIndoctrine, its not much difference how it connects...usb or ethernet on your switch04:08
hell_lordcedriczg: strangely it's rwx for root04:08
Indoctrineairtonix: But it's connected to my computer, not a switch.04:08
smelianwhen i put it in desktop its run like storage but when i put it in laptop nothing happen04:08
airtonixIndoctrine, just a suggestion, when you have a printer that can connect via ethernet....you dont have to have your computer running for them to be able to use it....means less cables also04:09
cedriczghell_lord, which files you mean?04:09
hell_lordcedriczg: all permissions look normal04:09

Tim__it is always changing the ip address:airtonic04:19
IshnuI have read that you can telnet an IP adress with a certain port, to determine if that port is open on the target system. But wouldn't this method just work if the target IP adress was using that port for telnet, and not anything else?04:19
hell_lordIndoctrine: oh dear god04:19

MrNaz`anotherman if you need root regularly then perhaps Ubuntu is not the distro for you05:44

Joshooagluonman: You're going to be told you're off topic but best you can do is DVDShrink and Wine05:44

Pnuxgluonman, looks like all you need is a double layer dvd05:44
gluonmanJoshooa, I don't know why I'm off topic. Maybe I should specify that I'm doing this in Ubuntu and ask what's the Ubuntu way to solve my problem.05:45
MrNaz`anotherman Ubuntu deliberately makes it hard to log in as root because logging in as root regularly is a bad idea both for beginners and advanced linux admins. theres no reason you should need it, so ubuntu blocks it. if you have decided you will log in as root no matter what, then ubuntu will fight you every day until you eventually break it05:45
Joshooagluonman: I don't know why either, but last night some guy got reemed for about 20 minutes for asking that same question05:45
IshnuCould someone with the UNIX source please pastebin Documentation/usb/usbmon.txt?05:45
MrNaz`anotherman if you dont know logging in as root is a bad idea, then thats even more reason for you not to log in as root05:45
anothermanMrNaz`,  I will break ubuntu then05:45
tritiumMrNaz`: the root account can be enabled easily.  It's just a bad idea.05:45
gluonmanJoshooa, that's strange. Is DVDShrink free?05:46
tritiumanotherman: read the URL I had ubottu send you about sudo05:46
StylesWhen Pidgen updated their client, did we automatically get it?05:46
Joshooagluonman: I guess it's "illegal" or something. But yeah, dd can make isos, but not re-encode, you need something to do that, there are some linux alternatives, but so far what I've seen most people use DVDShrink. I think probably just like a trial or freeware version05:46
MrNaz`anotherman hey... its you time, feel free to waste it as you please05:46

edgyIshnu: you know about usbmon and don't know about google?05:51
Joshooagluonman: Yes it should work fine, unless you have a bug or some error but I've read good reviews for it's reliability with Wine, sometimes it did freeze for people during encoding, but overall good. And yes, I believe you are legal and in your rights, but honestly, even if you weren't, I don't care, and I'd still help you cause the technology is cool and knowledge is power! :)05:51

Ishnubut i had little success - i am new to linux05:52
gluonmanJoshooa, amen.05:52
bobertdosStyles: Gnome really has nothing to do with the programs within it; it's just an environment. It is Connical and the Ubuntu project responsible for updates. Since Ubuntu is not a rolling distro, it really doesn't do any updates besides security and bug fixes.05:52

mib_cp3dynout of curiousity, should i be trying to get the vista bootloader back, or should i just stick with GRUB?06:03
roe_GRUB is your friend06:03
mib_cp3dynhaha. aight06:03
Rolaultenvista has no boot loader...and so you will not be able to boot into ubuntu if you remove grub06:03

lloydHi, can someone tell me the command to move all the files in a folder (just the folder, not its subfolders) to another directory?  In DOS it was move *.*, but I need to command for linux.  :)06:06
mib_cp3dynroe_ thank you for your help! got ubuntu up and running in dual boot with vista successfully. can't wait to play around with it06:06
rsc-lloyd, "move" is "mv" in linux.06:07
rsc-mv * /to/06:07
roe_ mib_cp3dyn soon you'll be dumping vista06:07
rsc-you get the idea06:07

Tim__i connected but it is nt finding the name server in dsl connection06:10
RoathGreetings everyone06:11
complex_numberwhich one do I install, lpr or CUPS06:11
tritiumcomplex_number: ubuntu uses cups06:11
complex_numbercupswrapper driver?06:11
Tim__line printer daemon06:11
Roathi got some pre-install questions, is this the right channel for it?06:11
tritiumcomplex_number: I'm not telling you to download anything.  I'm just telling you what ubuntu uses.06:11
IshnuRoath: yes06:12
Tim__how i do add name server any help06:12
tritiumTim__: if you need to add them manually, add them to /etc/resolv.conf06:12
LampreyTim edit /etc/resolv.conf06:12
Roathi want to install linux on a partition but i hear that vista doesn't have the ability to change the boot list, how do i get the ability to choose the OS's then?06:13
tritiumRoath: grub06:13
Roathwhat's that?06:13
tritium!grub | Roath06:13
ubottuRoath: grub is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost grub after installing windows: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows - Making GRUB floppies & other GRUB howtos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto06:13
Roath<- linux newb06:13
izinucsRoath, Grub will overwrite the windows boot loader and give you a menu.. when partitioning make 3 partitions.. root "/" = 6-12 gigs.... /swap = 1gig max.... and the rest /home06:13
bobertdosand it automatically gets installed with Ubuntu06:13
Roathuuuh, nice06:14
Roaththat solves that problem :D06:14
IshnuRoath - installing Ubuntu is very simple - what seems complicated now requires next to no effort from you06:14
izinucsRoath, do you have more than one partition on the drive now?06:14
Tim__tritium and lamprey: do u normally edit it or isnt added automatically once it is connected to isp06:14
tritiumTim__: I never touch it06:15
Roathyeah, i installed it on my notebook, its just that i wish to keep vista on my desktop06:15
Tim__tritium how did u setup ur dsl connection06:15
Roathlove ubuntu but sadly still a linux noob06:15
tritiumTim__: normally, if you receive your IP address via dhcp, you don't need to set it up.06:15
mike-solidushey, i need the kernel to recognize my ICH10 intel sata controller cards hard drives partitions but it does not, I know this means I need a newer kernel, but does one exist in ubuntu's repos?06:15
izinucsRoath,   time cures all ignorance :)06:15
Tim__i did receive the ip address06:15
bobertdosRoath: So you're, what? running wubi right now?06:15
LampreyI don't either.. dhcp daemon will add your dns server06:15
Tim__if mozilla is not working06:16
tritiumTim__: plug dsl modem into phone line06:16
IshnuDoes the Ubuntu installer automatically make a swap when you choose the default partition option?06:16
Roathwubi? i just installed ubuntu on my notebook, no idea what wubi is06:16
Tim__i am logged into my isp06:16
izinucsIshnu, yes06:16
Ishnuah k cool06:16
Ishnudoes having a swap make much difference?06:16
Tim__i am longged in to the isp and provided local and remote ip address06:16
bobertdosRoath: oh, I misread your post, sorry. But we still need to know -- do you have more than one partition right now on your desktop?06:17
izinucsIshnu, depending on your system and ram it may never be used.. but when you need it .. you need it... 1 gig should be plenty.06:17
IshnuOk cool06:17
Roathyeah, i have a 50gb partition i made for the purpose of installing ubuntu06:17
bobertdosRoath: unformatted as of yet, correct?06:17
izinucsRoath, split that so you have 3.. make root 8 gigs06:17
IshnuYou dont want a partition, am I right? I thought Ubuntu just likes using free space?06:18
Roathwell, i made the partition in vista, so i guess thats true06:18
tritiumizinucs: he can just let the installer automatically partition it06:18
bobertdosIshnu: You can do it either way.06:18
Roathwhy 8 gigs?06:18
izinucstritium, yes.. but if he needs to reinstall later (like most all noobs.. even me) it's helpful to save all your date in a seperate /home06:18
butterHow do I connect to a new server with xchat ubuntu ?06:19
tritiumizinucs: k.i.s.s.06:19
ltracy_hey, I'm getting a E: /var/cache/apt/archives/util-linux_2.13.1-5ubuntu3_i386.deb: subprocess new pre-removal script returned error exit status 106:19
ltracy_.  I haven't updated in quite awhile.  Any suggestions on how to fix it?06:19
bobertdosRoath: The amount is a little arbitrary. The point is that most people don't need incredibly much space for the root filesystem.06:19
izinucsRoath, you could probably get away with less. but as you experiment you'll find that some things you install get put in / (root) and not your data partition (/home)06:19
ltracy_(That is when I'm trying to use update manager to update)06:20
Tim__how could i check if ubunto has setup my network card to ip dhcp protocol06:20
mike-soliduscmon, surely someone in here knows about the kernel? your a massive branch of linux. . . this is the 4th day of me checking into irc trying to find someone06:21
tritiumTim__: have you configured it at all?  If not, network-manager should be handling it for dhcp.06:21
izinucstritium, yea.. I agree mostly.. so you wait until they've been running the system for a while and bork something that they can't back out of and end up reformatting and reinstalling.. loosing all data06:21
sysdocTim__: ifconfig06:21
tritiumizinucs: if something breaks, then backup data and reinstall06:21
ltracy_mike-solidus, what about the kernel?06:21
bobertdosUh oh, did we scare him away? haha06:21
Tim__tritium i havent...i am wondering why it said remote ip address and local address06:21
tritiumTim__: what's "it"?06:21
izinucstritium, just trying to avoid that step06:22
Lampreyltracy - you need to update your repositories... go to system->administration->software sources.. when you close it it will update.. either that or go to a terminal window and run sudo apt-get update06:22
tritiumizinucs: it may not happen06:22
Tim__tritium :let me check06:22
izinucsmike-solidus, the newer kernel is part of the next release.. you could install  it now if you like.. not the kernel alone but the entire distro.. but first ask in #ubuntu+1 and see if anyone know if it addresses your issue..06:23
mike-solidusItracy_: I have a problem with its support of my intel ICH10 sata controller card, I got ubuntu to install by changing the mode to ahci but i can't leave it as that because windows no longer recognizes it when it is in ahci mode. I've poked around a little and found that ICH10 support has recently been added into the kernel and is availabe in intel_ata.ko and uhci. But i cant find an answer past that06:23
zohrehhow to install qt in ubuntu 7.1006:24
mike-solidusizinucs: sweet, i'll go check, didn't know about ubuntu+106:24

Joshoo1CaptainMurphy: Yes I just had that the other night actually, had to get a new CD in the end but installed and using it now06:41
ltracy_This is what I'm getting from update manager when I try to do an update:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/52360/   .  On advice from here, I closed update manager, ran apt-get update, and then did a check for new updates (in update manager) and I still get the same error.06:41
CaptainMurphywait all you did was get a new CD?06:41
Lampreyekow - right click on the folder and select "make link", then move the link to your desktop06:42
Joshoo1ekow: Just right click on desktop, create launcher, change type to location, and create it all with the info06:42
Joshoo1ekow: Or what he said06:42
[Solars]anyone know where the guest module is for virtualbox located? I checked the /opt/ directory and its empty06:42
izinucsCaptainMorgan, you might also need to use the "alternate" cd for machines with limited resources or smaller amounts of ram06:42
CaptainMurphyjashoo1, what exactly did you do? I've been pulling my hair out over this for the last few days06:43
Joshoo1CaptainMurphy: Yes it wasn't able to copy from the CD I had, even though it was an official one from my Ubuntu book, used an older burnt CD I had, and here I am.06:43
CaptainMorganizinucs, I might?06:43
CaptainMurphyhow old?06:43
ekowLamprey thanks06:43
izinucsCaptainMorgan, depends on your machine.. if it's older or doesn't meet the minimum ram amount for the live cd.06:43
CaptainMorganizinucs, no06:44
Lampreyekow: if you're trying to do if from the terminal window use the command sudo ln -s <original folder> ~/Desktop/<linked folder name>06:44
Joshoo1CaptainMurphy: I used a 7.10 CD cause I didn't have any other 8.04 CD06:44

kinectionI'm trying to get a Dell 720 printer working and I need to find the location of the ppds, the forum post i am looking at directs me to /usr/share/cups/models, however, that folder no longer exists in hardy heron, where do I go to find the PPDs? I'm looking for the Lexmark Z600 (Dell 720).06:55
bobertdosCrazz: What are you using for a browser? What kind of an iMac do you have?06:55
CaptainMurphy9% done downloading 7.1006:55
Joshoo1CaptainMurphy: I would only say so cause it's new and will have less updates and upgrades than an older version, and it can leave other stuff on your system that wouldn't be used in a newer version.  Whichever one works for you though.06:55
izinucsClutz, xorg.conf looks like you've been manually building it.  looks ok.. logs I don't read so well.   xorg.conf typically doesn't have everything you have in yours.. pretty blank actually.  So what 3 methods did you try to get the card working?06:55
CaptainMurphyThe thing I'm worried about is how far the bug goes back06:56
Lampreymacvr: avidemux and kino are both in the repo's.. do a search in synaptic for video editor and it should pull them up06:56
Crazz1999 iMac G3 333mhz proc 32mb ram 6mb vid 6gb hdd Mac OS 8.6 IE 4.506:56
Lampreythere a a couple of others, but those two are popular06:56
Clutzizinucs: all except the resolutions were automatically generated by nvidia setup06:56
Clutzizinucs: it didn't work before i added the resolutions either, was hoping it would help06:56
izinucsnomingzi, tar yes.. compiling it is pretty easy.. sudo apt-get install build-essential.. then move to the directory where you unpaked the tar file and sudo ./vmware-yada-yada.pl06:57
CaptainMurphyI read this post http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=600126 all abou tthe bug and people were doing all kinds of crazy stuff to get it working, pulling out ram, mixing up master and slave drives and cdroms, all kinds of stuff06:57
Joshoo1CaptainMurphy: Well, I tried 8.04, had the bug, tried 7.10, and now it works, so something in between there gave me the problem but supposedly it just means your CD is messed up, even getting a different copy of 8.04 SHOULD work, but, you never know.06:57
izinucsClutz.. so on install of Ubuntu the rez was borked and you went directly to xorg to edit?06:57
Crazzi boot to the cd load the kernel and get Ramdisk incomplete write -28 !=32768 invalid compressed format kernal panic unable to mount fs on unkown-block(1,0)06:57
Clutzizinucs: first i tried doing the standard, enable restricted driver method, got that black screen of doom on boot so i restored my xorg.conf06:58
Joshoo1CaptainMurphy: I didn't have internet at the time I was trying to do it, just my collection of Linux CDs/DVDs from the last year or so, so I just tried different CDs06:58

CaptainMurphyI tried 3 copies of the 8.04 CD, all md5 verfied one of them was the alternate CD06:58
bobertdoscrazz: I'm not even sure you could run the alternate with that...06:58
Clutzizinucs: seconds i tried using the driver from the nvidia site, same thing06:58
Clutzizinucs: 3rd i tried envy, also same result06:58
macvrLamprey>  oops... didnt realize i could do a description search in synaptic[noob!]06:58
izinucsClutz, does this card work on windows? or have you tried?06:58
Clutzizinucs: lastly i tried going back to the nvidia driver from the site but added resolutions to the xorg.conf hoping it would help06:59
CaptainMurphyand the install CD worked on a laptop of mine like a month ago, so I'm sure its not the CD, I think its just the installer is buggy somehow and it hits some files it has trouble with and then gives and I/O error06:59
Clutzizinucs: works fine on windows06:59
bobertdosCrazz: yup, that's pretty limited........I'm not quite sure what to suggest.06:59
Clutzizinucs: works mildly on vesa: 800x600 resolution with no 3d06:59
izinucsClutz, have you tried "nv" instead of vesa?07:00
Clutzizinucs: not yet07:00
mistformhow do I empty the trash bin?07:00

Lampreymacvr: np, drop back in and let me know which you prefer after you get a chance to use them. :)07:00
Clutzizinucs: should i try that now on my default xorg.conf or the one i showed you up there?07:00
mistformCrazz, DSL, yes. used for flash-mob computing07:00
MrPickl1koala_man, you still in here?07:00

izinucsClutz, sure07:00
Clutzizinucs: which?07:01
macvrLamprey> sure...07:01
macvrthank u07:01
izinucsClutz, switch nvidia for nv07:01
AngryKoalaIn HH, I tried to make a new login in a window and it said that my x server was configured badly, possibly the driver?07:01
Crazzwell i can't use the flash part but you think there is a way to install it from os 8?07:01
phpcurioushello how do you run a .bin file in ubuntu?07:01
bobertdosCrazz: yeah, there's that, and Puppy,,,,,and a few others. I don't know which ones are compatible with PowerPC Macs though.07:01
CaptainMurphybin stands for binary, whats it for?07:01
phpcuriousactually i want to install a newly downloaded zend studio for eclipse07:01
phpcuriousit's in .bin format07:02
CaptainMurphywas there also a .cue file?07:02
Lampreyphpcurious : technicaly you can try to "run" any program.  do a sudo chmod +x <filename> to make it executable07:02
chubsjust chmod +x it and then ./crazy.bin phpcurious07:02
CaptainMurphyif so then you could use a CD burning program07:02
mistformhow do I empty the trash bin as root???07:02
phpcuriousokay wait let me check it07:02
chubsit needs to be executable before you can execute it07:02
MrPickl1... for anyone who knows or has used genisoimage to make a bootable cd, Im getting an error related to pathspec, not sure what it's referring to07:02

AngryKoalaWhat is a proper driver for an 8800GT in xorg.conf?07:03
Crazzthat help narrow it down a bit?07:03
jim_pAngryKoala: nvidia07:03
bobertdos!trash | mistform07:03
ubottumistform: The location of Trash has changed in 8.04, it is now located in ~/.local/share/Trash | Looking for the trash in previous versions: ~/.Trash07:03
AngryKoalait says that it is configured badly07:03
jim_pAngryKoala: provided that you have the relevant package installed07:03
mistformbobertdos, that does nothing.07:03
mistformno help whatsover07:04
ClutzAngryKoala: I only managed to get 8800GT working with the nvidia driver from the nvidia website07:04
Lampreyangrykoala you'll want to use the NV driver over the Nvidia driver I believe?07:04
AngryKoalaI used envy07:04
ClutzAngryKoala: it will also autoconfigure your xorg.conf07:04
bobertdosmistform: not even when you do sudo rm to that location?07:04
mistformbobertdos, ty, now THAT helps07:04
izinucsClutz, did you change to the nv driver?07:04
taknikinIm having trouble getting my screen res back to its original options07:04
macvrguys... how many of u are using pidgin? i'd like to know if i can turn off the notification when each person logs in/out07:04
AngryKoalaok, but my problem is that when I try to open a "new login in a window" it says my x server is not properly configured07:04
taknikinIm stuck at no hgher than 800x60007:04
Lampreyangrykoala my bad.. you're probably trying to get glx and desktop effects for the cool stuff?07:04
Clutzizinucs: yeah, about to reboot07:04
jim_pdo not use stupid tools to magically create xystem critical files like xorg.conf!!!07:04
Joshoo1whenever I try to check my repositories in Synaptic, it tells me they've changed and I must hit reload, after I hit reload and then it updates and I try to view/edit my repositories, it does the same thing, and I can't do it.07:05
jim_p*system critical07:05
izinucsClutz, just ctrl+alt+backspace07:05

Joshoo1jim_p: What do you mean paste my sources.list somewhere?07:07
mistformchubs, could I make a launcher to "sudo rm -r /home/mist/.local/share/Trash/files/*", or would this be not a good thing to do?07:07
Clutzpulled up pidgin on another computer while i do this07:07
AngryKoalamy x server says "cannot start a new display, perhaps it is not configured well"07:07
izinucsmacvr, there is an option for that.. can't remember where though07:07
bobertdosmistform: You may actually want to cd into the trash and then: sudo rm -rf .07:07
jim_pJoshoo1: your problem seems to be something is /etc/apt/sources.list  . paste its content in pastebin for us to see07:07
chubsmistform, wouldn't make a difference but I don't see the point. you'd probably have to use gksu since sudo is called from the command line only also07:07
macvrizinucs>i just cant find that option!  what are u using?07:08
chubsmacvr, check in the plugins07:08
izinucsmacvr, for  irc? here? xchat and sometimes irssi07:08
bmxerneed help with ipod it charges but wont recognize any suggestions?07:09

izinucsClutz, during all your trials and errors did you happen to install nvidia-settings?07:11
voidmageI'm getting a "no space left on device" error when I know that's not the case. baobab reports the correct amount of free space but df doesn't07:12
voidmagewhere can I find to fix this?07:12
Clutzizinucs: only if it was installed along with the restricted driver, nvidia driver. or envy07:12
Crazzwhat is the chances of finding a version on linux you can install from mac os?07:12
FlannelJoshoo1: Whats the problem?  Oh.  It could be a bug in the version from -proposed.  You really shouldn't be running proposed (and also should think twice before enabling backports as well)07:12
bobertdosFlannel: You once told someone how to do disk checks on boot using the file touch function. How did that go again?07:13
Flannelbobertdos: sudo touch /forcefsck then reboot07:13
voidmagethis is weird07:13
mistformmacvr, any luck?07:13
Flannelbobertdos: there's a flag you can pass to shutdown too.  You'd have to check the manpage07:14
macvrizinucs> how are they ? easy to use?  do u guys actually type another users username or do u just click and it comes?07:14
voidmageanyone have any ideas?07:14
bobertdosFlannel: Yeah, I read the manpage, but when I realized it was meant to modify file flags, I realized I forgot the filename.07:15
izinucsClutz, I'm thinking that maybe you have an install of 2 different nvidia drivers.. other than synaptic I dont know another way to check that out.. before looking .. you might install nvidia-settings and change the driver back to nvidia in xorg.. restart x and then off the System/admin menu you'll find nvidia-settings.. might be able to make the changes there.. actually run it from terminal..07:15
macvrmistform>i dont have probs with sounds but will check if there is anything there for no displaying the log events07:15

Flannelbobertdos: if /forcefsck exists, it'll do a fsck, if /fastboot exists it'll explicitly not fsck.  If they're both... I'm not really sure.07:16
complex_numberhow do I watch a DVD in ubuntu?07:16
izinucsmacvr, xchat is much easier than pidgin for irc.. irssi is a terminal app and great to have around in case your gui doesn't work.07:16
voidmagebaobab is reporting 440.8GB as used, but df is reporting all 466G as used07:16
FlannelJoshoo1: sources.list is all you need.  Comment out the backports and proprosed lines.07:16
voidmagewhere can I find the 26GB discrepancy?07:16
samsssi dont remember who help me with virtualbox and file share, but it takes for ever when i try to see files on shared folders, is it normal? can i speed it up?07:16
fariahi all07:16
macvrizinucs> thnx07:16
FlannelJoshoo1: also, check this folder for contents: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/07:16
Clutzizinucs: I uninstalled envy completely, and the nvidia driver from the site removed the restricted driver one when it was installing07:16
Joshoo1Flannel: You think that's what's making Synaptic keep telling to reload my sources?07:16
fariai cant play online movies in ubuntu07:16
izinucsmacvr, don't install xchat-gnome.. just xchat07:16
complex_numberHow do I watch a dvd in ubuntu?07:17

FlannelJoshoo1: No, I have no idea what synaptic is doing.  But it could be a non-stable version, since that certainly sounds like a bug07:17
samssscomplex_number, sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras mplayer07:17
Flannelvoidmage: what is du saying?07:17
izinucsClutz, so. .. remind me.. no gui at all or bad resolution.. late for me.07:17
fariai cant play online movies in ubuntu07:18
bobertdosfaria: could you be a bit more specific, please?07:18
voidmagehow do i sort du by filesize?07:18
Clutzizinucs: the gui must have come up this last time, it made the appropriate sounds, i just can't see07:18
Joshoo1Flannel: K I just commented out, and nothing in that folder.07:18
Lampreyfaria: you may need to install w32 codecs to watch on-line movies.07:18
Clutzizinucs: normally my computer locks up when i boot07:18
Flannelvoidmage: er, you dont.  Or at least, not on its own.07:18
izinucsClutz, try ctrl+alt+f707:18
FlannelJoshoo1: Alright, save and then sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade07:18
Clutzizinucs: what's that do?07:18
Joshoo1Flannel: K, halfway done with that will report back soon thanks for helping me out07:19

voidmageFlannel: then how can I find the offending 20G file?07:20
Flannelvoidmage: Its likely not a 20G file.07:20
izinucsClutz, also is the monitor a crt or lcd?07:20
Flannelvoidmage: what does du say your total usage is on that partition?07:20
voidmagedf is reporting 466G used though07:20
Flannelvoidmage: so, baobab and du both report 441?07:21
voidmageit's df that reports 466 and programs report "no space left on device"07:21
Joshoo1Flannel: I think the problem stems from I had to install 7.10 and then upgrade to 8.04 cause a straight install to 8.04 messed up my graphics, and then I forgot to plug in my laptop and it died while finishing up the upgrade, so my sources got messed up and not everything was done. I believe that's the root of this problem07:22
voidmagecan barely search for this on google since everything thinks i'm out of space07:23
bastid_raZorvoidmage; you could try getting rid of something07:23
Flannelvoidmage: Have you cleaned your package cache? (sudo apt-get clean)?07:23
complex_numberWhen I try and play a DVD, Mplayer does nothing07:23
voidmageFlannel: I have a separate home partition07:23

IndoctrineIs there any way to tell how much ink I have left in my printer?07:33

fariawhats that means07:33
samssshelp with vbox file sharing too slow...!07:34
bastid_raZorcomplex_number; can you test the DVD in a standalone DVD player?07:34
Indoctrinefaria: ActiveX is something Internet Explorer uses07:34
technoid_taria: you could try IE4linux07:34
fariait means can i go back to xp07:34
Indoctrinefaria: It adds functionality to some pages and can be a nuisance if improperly used07:34
Indoctrinefaria: <bobertdos> faria: That site uses ActiveX controls. Basically, you're out of luck in Ubuntu.07:35
fariathen no solution for that07:35
Indoctrinefaria: Simply because ActiveX is an Internet Explorer thing and there's no IE or any way of getting IE in Ubuntu07:36
technoid_faria: i use IE4linux for a website that has activex07:36
technoid_Indoctrine: check out IE4Linux07:36
fariabut firefox also can play that movies07:36
fariai use in xp07:36
Indoctrinetechnoid_: Not likely. I live fine without IE.07:36
bobertdosfaria: That's becuase the latest version of Firefox in Windows now comes with an ActiveX helper.07:37
technoid_While it might not be for you, telling someone that there is no way to run IE on ubuntu isn't correct07:37
fariatechnoid_ can u guide me how can i get ie407:37

enviseanZnow: if you used an alternative installer, who knows what didn't come w/ it07:42
Indoctrinesupersized: It sure is.07:42

Joshoo1supersized: I think there's a site called learnlinux.com or something. There a lot of tutorials out there, but mainly just keep using and it figure it out as you go, and read manuals and guides and hang out in the chat and watch what people talk about to pick stuff up07:44
Indoctrinefaria: I'd suggest you learn a little more about Linux before attempting that.07:44
enviseanZnow: try running it under root first, heh07:44

jim_pkhakihacky: is it in lsusb?08:14
ltracy_damn.  This is frustrating.  I can't install updates because it can't replace util-linux because there is some stupid error in the package removal script08:14
yannickm1however the CD i'm producing is causing the installer to go into PPOE mode, (failing of course)08:14
ltracy_I can't remove it myself because it's 'essential'08:14
khakihackyI'm sorry I'm not sure what you mean08:14

yannickm1and comparing to the normal server CD08:14

tarelerulzThe reason I went for adobe standalone was  play videos I have gotten off other sites like youtube and so on.  In firefox they play fine sometimes.   If I have more then one video going flash player seem to mess up .  I thought maybe if I got the standalone version I could play the movies at later date. Plus mplayer , vlc and totem don't seem to work well.  One lets me fast forward and other don't let me do that.  So you can see 11:05

murlidhark guys how do i make gdm start manually when booting the system?11:32
zeth-ubuntuleslieviljoen : ask kopete to use alsa?11:32
sifunkthe problem may lie within arts then, which should be doing all sound mixing then sending one signal to alsa11:33
