* gmm46 really needs help!!!!!00:01
DasEi!ask|***gmm4600:01
ubottu***gmm46: Please don't ask to ask a question, ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely answer. :-)00:01
t2unop: ok i see the /etc/bash.bashrc... could you please tell me how to add this ?  can i simply paste the export line anywhere ?    Also i need to do this for tcsh... will i also need to modify a global tcsh profile file ?00:01
* eight thinks gmm46 talks like a moron00:01
marcinbobertdos, yes00:01
matreya6marcin, *flush*-plugin? lol00:01

gmm46i am a neeb when it comes to ubuntu so00:02
marcinmatreya6, it's late00:02
redf1shreya276: in linux its sure ifconfig, or iproute.00:02
DasEi***gmm46: lspci,lshw,hwinfo00:02
marcingmm46, what do you have hardware-wise?00:02
bobertdosmarcin: Interesting..........Well, it's up to you. The way to update would be to uninstall what you already have, and manually install the version from Adobe labs. Your decision...00:03
reya276redf1sh: thanks00:03
unopt2, you need to adjust PATH in /etc/profile then  - /etc/bash.bashrc is only for bash as you might know00:03
marcinbobertdos, I could do that00:03
bobbob1016How can I change my wifi macid?  I tried via "gnome-nettool" and it says that the interface might not be installed, but it is.00:03
gmm46hang on00:03
unopt2, a line like this would do.   PATH="$PATH":/new/dir1:/new/dir2:etc00:03
linux-newbiehello everyone00:03
marcinbobbob1016, but I don't know no more where is firefox's plugin folder00:03

ubottuvalerie: Hi! Welcome to #ubuntu!00:04
bobertdosmarcin: and actually, if you use adobe's installer, you just have to give it /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.300:05
unopmarcin, or /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/  # which is better00:05

rampageoberonHi, I started to have problems with samba shares after installing wine. The shares would not mount but as soon as i delete wine its fine. What sseems to be the problem?00:05
gamikageit is supposed to be already on the program, it is the first one on applets00:05
t2unop: ok so i'll add that line in /etc/profile and /etc/bash.bashrc.....this will completely over-ride the individual .bashrc's of each user ?  what if they have made their own customizations ?00:05
marcinbobertdos, unop, I don;t think this is where the plugins are anymore00:05
gamikagehey i tried to open the cfdisk man but there says critical mistake: cannot access to the disk, any idea on how to fix this_00:06
unopmarcin, it's where I put plugins00:06
marcinbobertdos, unop all this folders are empty now... and I have some plugins installed00:06
gamikageso what you should do is open awn/manager00:06
unopt2, users can always override global defaults00:06
gamikageagain and then applets and it is supposed to be there00:06

bobertdosmarcin: Okay, I was just checking because your file structure doesn't seem standard.00:11
marcingamikage, are you sudo?00:11
DasEiShark_7-11:eve thought of installing """evil""" propitary driver from nv-HP ?00:11
gamikageyes00:11
marcinbobertdos, since firefox 3 things changed00:11
bobertdosmarcin: not for me00:12
Shark_7-11DasEi: ... err... say what? :-p00:12

DasEiShark_7-11:open a terminal ...00:13
Shark_7-11in one00:13
DasEiShark_7-11:32 or 64 bit ?00:13
DustBunn1the touch screen works to some degree as it does detect touch just not movement00:13
SebNaitsabesDustBenn1:  got a feeling Linux does not have very good touchscreen suppourt at the moment, because the hardware makers can't be screwed to make a  Linux driver for their touchscreen products,  even with Windows,  touchscreen technologey is pretty new it seems00:13
Shark_7-11DasEi: 64*00:13
bobertdosmarcin: Alright, in Firefox, go into about:config. Find plugn.expose_full_path and enable it. I want to know where your plugins are actually sitting according to the browser.00:13
gamikagemarcin, please tell me how to get in as root00:13
tsrkwhen is ubuntu 8.10 coming out?00:14
gamikagemarcin, mine is missing00:14
zewm_sudo <commands>00:14
marcingamikage, when in terminal type in sudo -s00:14
DasEiShark_7-11:live cd handy in case of x refusig to start ?00:14
tsrkand does kubuntu 8.10 come out at the same time?00:14
DustBunn1@SebNait, i'm aware, it's not so much drivers i need, it's just configuring it00:14
marcingamikage, provide you password00:14
marcingamikage, and you are root00:14
DustBunn1@SebNait, the touch screen itself is working, just not properly configured00:14
gamikagemarcin thanks, now let me se00:14
Shark_7-11DasEi: Not realy, will start up in recovery mode (runlevel 1) and get backup of xorg.conf file :-p00:14
marcingamikage, but be careful cause you can shoot you leg off00:14
gamikageja, ok00:14
SebNaitsabesDustBunn1: hummmmmmmm  you got to configure X for it or something?00:15
DasEiShark_7-11:k, so far you know, then do a backup of it now00:15
BlackDesigntsrk, 8.10 --> 2008/1000:15
Shark_7-11DasEi: Done...00:15
DustBunn1@Seb, that's the problem, not not a big linux user, so i have no idea how to configure X00:15
DasEiShark_7-11:googling, brb00:15
SebNaitsabesDustBunn1:  ok well configuring X is a right pain in the arse for new Linux users00:15
Shark_7-11DasEi: Good luck.... i tried ... and got a lot of advice.... and here i am :-p00:15
marcinbobertdos, look at that: /var/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so00:16
gamikagemarcin, it is saying that the disk is only readable even at root, that cannot be written, and then the bull.... of critical erro]00:16

DustBunn1@Seb, i checked online for a solution and i came across the evdriver and some example configs for the xorg.conf file00:16
marcingamikage, you might be trying to access a cdrom drive00:16
Shark_7-11DasEi: I think i have tha allready   hold on00:16
DustBunn1@Seb but i have no idea how to use that example in my case xD00:16
bobertdosmarcin: OHH! You're running 64-bit, that's why everything is seeming so weird.00:16
tsrkBlackDesign, I know it's this month but what day is it?00:16
DasEiShark_7-11:dld it to desktop, else00:17
gamikagemarcin, cfdisk? when trying to make a swap partition00:17
Shark_7-11DasEi: shoul i remobre nvidia-glx-new fort though?00:17
gamikage??00:17
marcinbobertdos, yes00:17
Shark_7-11DasEi: First*00:17
SebNaitsabesDustBunn1:  I guess it's like  edit the  x config file with that, restart X and hope it works or something,  but it's probably not as simple as that00:17
rampageoberonHi, I started to have problems with samba shares after installing wine. The shares would not mount but as soon as i delete wine its fine. What sseems to be the problem?00:17
DasEiShark_7-11:hm, if the installe recognizes your x-server, it shall modify xorg.conf by itself, so no00:17
Vi5inhow do i force install a package00:17
marcingamikage, you don;t have a swap partition?00:18
Vi5ineven if it claims it is broken00:18
Shark_7-11DasEi: I have driver v 177.1300:18
SebNaitsabesDustBunn1:  you can try this channel as well #linux  also your issue is probably not really that distro specific00:18
bobertdosmarcin: Just for future reference, be sure to tell us right away when you're running 64-bit, because it completely changes the approach to some things, especially plugins.00:18
gamikagedoes not let me see that even00:18
DasEiShark_7-11:but as I don't know what you've tried..  worst got a backup00:18
Vi5ini have installed libmtp from source00:18
Shark_7-11DasEi: Opose to the 173.14.12 one you meantioned...00:18

Vi5inand it is version 0.3.300:18
Vi5intrying to install mtp-tools00:18
DustBunn1@Seb, yea, thanks, but the linux community has already deemed the HP IQ506 pc as non-ubuntu friendly so I doubt anyone will even try to help me00:18
Shark_7-11DasEi: k no worries00:18
Vi5inThe following packages have unmet dependencies:00:18

marcingamikage, did you try fdisk?00:19
Vi5inhow do i force it to install?00:19

DustBunn1@Seb, my search on google returned countless threads and such saying isntalling ubuntu or any linux distro on this PC is a dead end atm00:19

Shark_7-11DasEi: No from nvidia today00:20
Vi5inanyone?00:20
SebNaitsabesok so you got hardware that is not really Linux compatible?00:20
DasEiShark_7-11:lets give it a try then00:20
DustBunn1@Seb, of course, ubuntu doesn't make it anywhere unless someone tries something new right ?00:20
Shark_7-11DasEi: Said i dont have libc header files (installed the build-esentials pakcage)00:20

Shark_7-11DasEi: k hang on, i need to stop my xserver00:20
marcingamikage, and that gives you critical error?00:21
bobertdosmarcin: Okay, well, I know that nspluginwrapper can be manually invoked in the terminal, so what you would have to do is purge the version you have, get the latest version from adobe labs, and apply nspluginwrapper to it yourself. I myself run 32-bit, so that's the extent of what I know about the process. We've got a separate factoid on flash for 64. Have you read it?00:21

DasEi Shark_7-11:I mean choose by manufacturer00:34
Scunizikeenscreen: you can easily create another account for each box that would represent the user on that box.. the administrator account I don't think you want to give to your average user..00:34
Shark_7-11DasEi: no not there... i have prestigo LCD screen00:34
DasEi Shark_7-11:I see, change matching lcd screen then00:35
Scunizikeenscreen: when creating a user account you will be able to give them access to only what you want to let them have access to.00:35
keenscreenScunizi, they are developers i want them to have a lot of access00:35
Scunizikeenscreen: then make them admins but use different login creds for each user..00:35
Shark_7-11DasEi: Err... Not sure what would be a good match00:36
Scunizikeenscreen: or not..00:36
DasEi Shark_7-11:Is it one of these 22'' monsters ?00:36
Shark_7-11DasEi: monster, well :-) not really... think it is a 17"00:37
Shark_7-11DasEi: I'm metric so i guess bout 17" yeah00:37
Shark_7-11DasEi: Selected a generic LCD screen00:38
keenscreenScunizi, should the developer who has lot of access an admin00:38
Shark_7-11DasEi: I have option to test00:38
Scunizikeenscreen: if each box has the same account it might make it more difficult to admin the boxes.  confusion will abound.. "lets see is that keenscreen on the back desk or the one in the front or middle.." if you get my drift.00:38
blakI am getting this error can anyone explain why? http://pastebin.com/m7f70ba1d00:38
DasEi Shark_7-11:right, if you don't need higher 1024x768 won't do harm00:38
Shark_7-11DasEi: k cool, let me test the bugger00:38
DasEi Shark_7-11:test might not work, as the gtk uses wrong driver00:38
keenscreenScunizi, should i delete the keenscreen account?00:39
DasEi Shark_7-11:but try, its coming back itself00:39
Shark_7-11DasEi: K test passed but the graphic card says vesa (not nvidia)00:39
Scunizikeenscreen: not really sure on this one.. a "user/guest" should be able to develop and compile within their account.  But to make system wide changes takes admin priv.. you could leave the account and create another or create another THEN delete the keenscreen account.00:40
blakWhat is the program or command that you can use that will give back in terminal the information of what version any applicatoin you specify is?00:40

unopbziobnic, right, that's what i thought - if it's indeed due to a unclean dismount - the best way is to reboot and then check the disk out (or step into runlevel 1 and dismount everything and carry out and fsck)01:33

unopbziobnic, but i should think this is more than just a problem with an unclean dismount - reboot and monitor /var/log/{dmesg,debug} for sometime.01:34
qfour21NiCK_NaME: also, if a usb device doesn't mount properly, sometimes you can unplug it and plug it in again and it'll be recognized.01:35

bobertdosgbear14275: Well the problem varies in nature, but for flash 9, the issue is usually that libflashsupport destabilizes the browswer.03:04

bobertdosbjb1959: Of the live cd?05:10
usserShak--, 2.6.25? are u on intrepid?05:10

Shak--usser: no I manually upgraded (tinkering with iwlwifi required it)05:10
Shak--usser: so im hardy05:10
Shak--*on05:10
abe3kusser : ok will do05:10
slagpitHi, I mistyped a command and ran it in the wrong directory. Can someone tell me what the mistyped command did exactly?05:10
usserShak--, hm forget about backports then its for stock kernel only05:11
bobertdoshosstest: I just sent jf13 on the quest for flash 10. I offer you the same option, if you wish.05:11
Shak--ah ok05:11
bjb1959bobertdos, yes. I have tried pclinuxos 2008 livecd and get same thing. the alternate install won't work either05:11
abe3kusser : "/dev/scd0: No medium found"05:11
DigitalFizslagpit, depends on what the miss typed command was05:11
slagpitthe mistyped command was "sudo chmod -x +777 /*/*"05:11
Shak--usser: but this is fine now, for some reason I kept getting kernel panics with that other module I compiled, and they increased in frequency over time05:11
hosstestbobertdos: are you suggesting that flash 10 is the resolve?  And if so where can I get it?05:12
bobertdosbjb1959: Goll, you know, this has been happening to a lot of people ever since hardy came around. I have no idea why.05:12
dan_HELP: I'm having trouble with disk space -- applications are complaining of no space on device. How do i start the investigation process !!???05:12
mefisto__abe3k: is there a disk in it to mount?05:12
sdwrageHey all.. where is php.ini usually?05:12
usserShak--, yep same problem for me here panics with the newer kernel05:12
abe3kmefisto__ : yes05:12
bjb1959but why would it happen with pclinux0s 2008 which is Mandriva?? they have nothing to do with hardy05:12
usserShak--, also heavy cpu usage when connecting to networks to the point where computer becomes unusable05:12
usserShak--, many ppl report that05:13
Slaj_RAnyone?  Once again, what's the fix for this error:05:13

Slaj_RE: /var/cache/apt/archives/samba_3.0.28a-1ubuntu4.5_i386.deb: subprocess new pre-removal script returned error exit status 10205:13
sdwrageCan anyone tell me where php.ini is usually on ubuntu?05:13
Shak--usser: Im not sure if its the newer kernel or that specific wifi module, because if I used the machine with networking disabled it never paniced05:13
l3dhere is a odd ? the term app mpg123 is there a way to set the volume for that. Like a separate volume control from the main volume.05:13
bobertdoshosstest: The first thing I tell people is to purge flash 9 and libflashsupport. Flash 10 can then be found at http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html05:13
abe3kusser : "ls: cannot access /dev/dvd*: No such file or directory"05:13
raDeonhow to make irssi seperate nicknames from the chat text05:13
usserShak--, i suggest go back to hardy stock kernel 2.6.24-19 and install backports module05:13
sdwrageCan anyone tell me where PHP.INI is located on ubuntu?05:14
usserShak--, backports is 1.2.25 and as i said its been stable for me05:14
usserabe3k, thats weird05:14
Shak--usser: I still have that kernel, I'd just have to go back and reconfigure my xorg.conf05:14

r00tintheb0xslagpit, what would possess you to run something like that...05:20
usserbullgard4, so you dont get the correct dns server05:21
eligosbobertdos, it says: shockwave flash 9.4 r12405:21
slagpitthe same thing that posses people to have accidents05:21
Carefreerawr05:21
slagpit*possesses05:21
jasuussdwrage : you there?05:21
bobertdoseligos: Do you have libflashsupport installed?05:21
r00tintheb0xslagpit, when you do a "ls -al /" are all your directories there with permissions "drwxrwxrwx"?05:21
mefisto__slagpit: so what did you WANT to do?05:21
usserbullgard4, do sudo gedit /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf05:22
r00tintheb0xbrb05:22
Carefreeis there any gui's for apache?05:22
jasuussdwrage: /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini05:22
bullgard4usser: I agree. But the other laptop in my LAN gets the correct DNS server.05:22
eligosadjioev, I hear that happens because alsa can't work with two different progrmas at the same time, but my problem is firefox actually crashes when I load another video05:22
slagpitif I try to boot ubuntu I get a busybox shell (guessing grub got destroyed)05:22
slagpitmefisto__: why does that matter?05:22
usserbullgard4, still lets try a public dns why not?05:22
bullgard4usser: I do use fixed addresses in my LAN, no DHCP.05:22
usserbullgard4, oh even better05:22
eligosbobertdos, yes, it's already at it's newest version according to my console05:23
usserbullgard4, sudo gedit /etc/resolv.conf and add nameserver 4.2.2.1 comment out all other nameservers05:23
kindofabuzzsome reason I'll get logged out and taken back to the gdm screen. any ideas?05:23
abe3kusser : maybe I have to restart05:24
kindofabuzzlike X is crashing or something05:24
usserabe3k, try it05:24
abe3kusser : ok05:24
bobertdoseligos: I hate to keep suggesting flash 10 to people, but that's what I've been doing. It's pretty stable now (especially with FF 3.03 out now), and it doesn't need libflashsupport. libflashsupport is actually the unstable part of it all.05:24

danbh_intrepid!fsck | dmsuperman    I think this is it05:26
ubottudmsuperman    I think this is it: fsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo shutdown -F -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot05:26

jennyyes i did shogran...05:44

jim_psavage--: well they may need it somewhere else05:46
jennyi have it set to alsa shogran..but ive tried all of them...i can even make beeps or any sort of test noise05:46
savage--jim_p, do you have that in /usr/lib32?05:46
shogranJenny: damn... what soundcard are you using?05:47
savage--jim_p, interesting, so I copied that file from /lib to /usr/lib32, and now when I run firefox I get: ./firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libgcc_s.so.1: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS6405:47
jim_psavage--: yea mine is in /lib05:47

firestormdefault ubuntu 8.405:48
tsukasa1105so like i screwed up my apt-get packages somehow, like, mplayer is installed but libavcodec isnt, and i manually install the dependency for libavcodec which then makes apt-get uninstall mplayer since it depends on that but it wasnt installed and it just realized that05:48
firestormim gonna say ya05:48
tritiumjenny: lspci -v may help you find it05:48
NiKeCRu666hello people.can someone help me with this please? how can i configure my 3D aceleration?05:48
tsukasa1105so how do i fix it05:48
savage--jim_p, is there a way I can restore the /usr/lib32/ directory to how it was before when I first installed 8.04?05:49
jennytritium...i remember someone told me some other command.05:49
usserbullgard4, in the DNS tab under DNS servers remove whatever is there and add 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.22005:49
jim_psavage--: the whole directory? no05:49
jennya short comman like that one05:49
bullgard4The search domains  alien.c-base.org, cbrp3-base.org, c-base.org are from my local computer club, and I am now at home.05:49
usserbullgard4, under search domains add workgroup05:49
shogranhmmm...05:50
tritiumsavage--: ?05:50
usserbullgard4, right it happened because you set the ip manually, those settings are usually obtained from dhcp server05:50
savage--tritium, I accidentally copied /lib into /usr/lib3205:50
jennyi rmember someone told me what to type to find it...it listed a bunch of things but i found it ...05:50
usserbullgard4, since you dont use dhcp at home they didnt get updated05:50
bullgard4usser: I have done " in the DNS tab under DNS servers remove whatever is there and add 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220."05:50
savage--tritium, so then I just did a find for the most recently modified files (to find the ones I copied over) and then removed them.05:51
usserbullgard4, and so you are unable to resolve domain names because the dns server from computer club cannot be contacted05:51
usserbullgard4, cool05:51
savage--tritium, and now it seems that certain things aren't behaving properly05:51
firestormso ya why cant i see my windows shares on my pc, other xp machines have no problem seeing them, and my linux can see hte other machines shares fine05:51
tritiumsavage--: if you must, reinstall, libgcc105:51
usserbullgard4, under search domains remove everything and add workgroup05:51
savage--tritium, ok let me try that... can I do it via apt-get?05:51
tritiumsavage--: yes: sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgcc105:51
tritiumsavage--: note that you need that file at /lib/libgcc_s.so.105:52
tritium(where the package provides it)05:52
bullgard4usser: I have done " under search domains remove everything and add workgroup"05:52
usserbullgard4, cool now close network manager and try ping google.com05:52
savage--tritium, ok it's there.... and I tried running the program again but I still get error while loading shared libraries: libgcc_s.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory05:52
savage--tritium, is a reboot required?05:52
ThanatosAnyone here have able to access a windows network share from hardy? If so, how?05:52
jennydoes antyone know the command to get my audio cards or driver to be displayed????05:52
firestormThanatos, i can05:53
usserThanatos, the trick is to provide full path to the share05:53
firestormbut not on my pc05:53
tritiumsavage--: ldconfig may need to be run05:53
FAJhi fdisk and df -h are giving me different reports of my system file sizes.  I am trying to use gparted, but it says that the drive i want to shrink (which is /) is 30 gbs, while i know i only have about 2 gbs of stuff in it.  i need some help thanks.  and when i click on properties of filesystem it only shows 12 gbs for both home and root, not the 36 it should.  any help please05:53
danbh_intrepidjenny: you could try lshw05:53
tritiumsavage--: try sudo ldconfig -v, and then run your program again05:53
usserThanatos, theres a bug in gnome-vfs that prevents gnome from displaying shares when you just open smb://servername05:53
firestormwhen i go to mitch-pc(my pc) its just blank in there05:54
bullgard4usser: I have done "close network manager and try ping google.com". It responds 0% packets lost.05:54
usserThanatos, you have to use smb://servername/sharename05:54
firestormbut other computers on the network work05:54
savage--tritium, ok, just ran ldconfig but still same error -- it's really strange because it's right there in /lib05:54
usserbullgard4, paste the whole line05:54
firestormusser why does it work with some computers but not others for me05:54
savage--tritium, could it be a path thing perhaps?05:54
tritiumsavage--: you get this error when?05:54
usserbullgard4, line after --- google.com ping statistics ---05:55
bullgard4usser: What whole line should I paste?05:55

firestormso wait usser how do i see the one htat doesnt work? in the gui05:56
bullgard4usser: Please be more specific: What DNS setting was wrong with me?05:56
usserfirestorm, specify the full path ie if on windows machine you have a share named Share then in file manager type smb://serverip/Share05:57
r2sis there a paid service in google that will rank up your website in search results for a specific keyword?05:57
jennywhat does it mean if it says i should run this command aas a super user?05:58
usserfirestorm, ip would be better because it will definitely work as opposed to hostname which ubuntu fails to resolve oftentimes05:58
FAJ!sudo | jenny05:58

jennyand what was the command again..and i need to run as super user..so do i just put sudo before it?06:07
usserThanatos, double check the share name06:08
tritiumfirestorm: no, synaptic is simply a front-end to apt-get06:08
tritiumfirestorm: you can use "apt-cache search <foo>"06:08

prohnaif i use gparted to create a new partition to install dsl to will it screw up my ubuntu install?06:19
SebNaitsabesprobhna: well yes if you accidently delete Ubuntu06:19
RaditI'm looking for calendar*.ics, i  used: locate calendar*.ics; even though there is a file named calendar.ics in my system locate doesn't find it06:19
SebNaitsabesprohna: if you accidently delete the Ubuntu partitoin06:19
Raditam i doing something wrong?06:19
SpherousHey, I installed Songbird and it ran right, but I accidentally deleted the folder, so I redownloaded it and now when I open it I get a line in the middle of my screen that I can resize but all thats there is a black box... any ideas?06:19
SebNaitsabesprohna:  ,but  you should be able to put DSL on another partition and  edit Grub if it does not already do it, so both can boot06:19
prohnaSebNaitsabes: so if im careful and dont touch this partition i can do this?06:19
suboneprohna: you still there?06:20
prohnasubone: yeah06:20
subonewhat now :p06:20
SebNaitsabesprobhna: but dual booting is a bit sucky, why not just do  DSL in a virtualmachien inside Ubuntu?06:20
prohnasubone: can you open a terminal?06:20
SebNaitsabesprobhna: well if you got at least 512MB RAM that is06:20
suboneprohna: virtual terminal06:20
prohnaSebNaitsabes: i only have 512 :)06:20
SebNaitsabesprohna: that's enough06:20
suboneprohna: idk how to run one in X without any terminal open or alt+f206:20
prohnasubone: yer not even in gnome?06:21
schnoodsanyone know if there is a GTK equivelant of Krita ?06:21
suboneprohna: yeah but gnome-panel hasnt started06:21
suboneor crashed on load or something06:21
prohnasubone: what if you hit alt f206:21
prohnanothing?06:21
SebNaitsabesprohna:  yep dual booting two Linux distros would suck quite a lot,   having the second in a virtual machine though, would be pretty good, and then you can use both at same time06:21
subonenothing06:21
subonetried that :p06:21
prohnasubone: idk then06:22
suboneprohna: i can use the virtual terminal of course06:22

balznlund... sorry my sarcasm detector is a bit off =)07:46
nlundlol07:46
balzplus it's late07:46
nlundwell if traceroute's not working, my guess is ping maybe... not sure if ping is held back on that IP though07:47
balznlund:  maybe the server's down for backups or something... it is almost 3 in the morning07:47
nlundgood point.. let me try tracerouting to it from AZ07:48
balzyeah taht would be great. Are there alternate servers out there?07:48
SurfnKidim sorry but i have to do this http://www.collegehumor.com/video:183200207:48
personcan someone help me please? my audio fluctuates between some programs working (rhythmbox, vlc, youtube) and sometimes not. i have an audigy 2 zs in my pci slot but i can't figure out how to set it as default so i'm using my onboard intel audio for now, but vlc and youtube aren't playing audio, yet rhythmbox is07:48
balzhaha that is a good one, surfnkid07:48
nlundhmmm I tracerouted fine07:49
bprHey, I just enabeled pre-released updates and unsupported updates (for Hardy) and now only one app at a time has "access" to the my soundcard (for output).  In order to let another app play sound, I need to quit the one currently playing sound and then start the other.  For example, if I'm listening to music w/Rhythm box but want to watch some YouTube, I must quit rhythmbox and then start Firefox in order for Firefox to be able to play07:49
bprsound.07:49
bprany idea why this might be?07:49
bpror any idea where to go to get some info on how to start debugging this?07:50
balznlund. the only thing i can think of is that I changed my router's IP from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.207:50
nlundbalz: well your routing properly since your on here07:51
bprsound was working fine before I enabled those updates, fyi07:51
balzgood point....07:51
nlundit could be just a problem with the ISP your on getting to that IP07:51
balzpossibly.  if i typed the ip in the address bar of my browser, maybe that would give me some indication07:52
bprperson: maybe your problem is the same as mine?07:52

bprperson: ah.07:54
balznlund:  ahah well i will certainly report back when i've figured it out... odly enough schedules direct seems to be working so who knows07:55
nlundsimon_b: "lsof | grep -i ttys0" is the first I'd try07:55

kahnoiewe can look it from two point of view...either configure the VoIP application or configure the internet access to swith to DSL in case the WLAN fails..and its usually the WLAN that fails most of the time..so my internet is blocked and I am unable to troubleshoot as this setup is in the remote location08:23
spoon_rfxcasey, then type avant-window-navigator, and look for errors08:23

luminerdmaco: I do, and it's really freaking easy because I use a Mac. However I am stuck setting up these linux systems and apperantly linux users don't think backing up is important, either that or they just can't stand to make soemthing easy.09:42
macoBatsmasher: you're not giving enough information for anyone to help you.09:42
hathiwalai am developing software in that but i m not getting any tools for date field09:42
luminerdbeli: Not sure exactly, around 20+ systems maybe09:43
macoluminerd: oh it's for someone else's computer?09:43
luminerdThey are all identical, except a few have more RAM09:43
macoBatsmasher: for example, what wireless card do you have09:43
beliluminerd: so it might be a nice investion to buy an external hard drive, really...09:43
luminerdIt's for a company I work for09:43
Batsmasherof, i have an Atheros Wireless LAN Card and it is not detected in Network Manager09:43
macoBatsmasher: have you checked the hardware manager / hardware driver manager?09:43
luminerdBut it's completely unnecesary09:43
beliluminerd: alternative is to make a package list of your ubuntu install, then install ubuntu basic and let it source the package list09:44
Batsmashermaco: lol where is it :)09:44
user881luminerd, what does that company use for backups?09:44
beliluminerd: so you could do it without backup space09:44
macoBatsmasher: system -> administration09:44
macobeli: he just wants to automate installs?09:44
pegwoleanyone have a clue what would cause "BUG: soft lock up detected on CPU#0!" ?  i'm using an acer aspire with an amd 64bit dual core processor09:44
zplashhow can i get a rightclick-menu with rounded corners???09:44
beliluminerd: or you take that harddrive and put it into each clone system....and copy the harddrive over09:44
luminerdNo vital data is being stored on the systems themselves. The execs use Macs so backups are automatic for the important stuff09:44
vr8mfit is possible to configure a network connection point-to-point in terminal?09:44
macozplash: create the GTK widget and get it added to GNOME maybe?09:45
luminerdbeli: I have backup space: CDs. Discs.09:45
erUSULvr8mf: through a crossover ethernet cable?09:45
belimaco: no, he wanted to clone harddrive at first...but without backup space ;)09:45
vr8mferusul: yeap09:45
erUSUL!clone | luminerd beli09:45
ubottuluminerd beli: 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 && sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade » - See also !automate09:45
luminerdThe backup space is a DISK09:45
beliluminerd: you can use them...but you will get a juggler09:45
macoluminerd: i dont get what having a mac has to do with backing up09:45
luminerda bootable disk09:45

waanI recently moved my swap partition to a bigger logical partition, and now the system is looking for its UUID which doesn't exist, causing usplash to cut out. Is there a way I can fix this?09:45
Batsmashermaco: Atheros Hardware Access Layer and Support for Atheros 802.11 wireless LAN cards both in use09:45
erUSULvr8mf: yep  just use static ip on both ends09:45
luminerdIs it such a horrible request, to ask to be able to back my system up to a bootable Disk? Every other OS int he world can do it trivially09:46
macoBatsmasher: did you reboot since enabling that?09:46
Batsmasheryes :)09:46
erUSULwaan: edit /etc/fstab and put the correct id09:46
erUSUL!uuid | waan09:46
ubottuwaan: To see a list of your devices/partitions and their corresponding UUID's, run this command in a !shell: « sudo blkid » (see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LibAtaForAtaDisks for the rationale behind the transition to UUID)09:46
belierUSUL: thats what i told him, but initially he wanted to CLONE the harddrive/partition....whatever....i told my stuff09:46
erUSUL!fstab > waan09:46
ubottuwaan, please see my private message09:46
macoluminerd: really? because if you've got more data for the OS than the capacity of the disk...09:46
luminerdmacd: Because on a Mac, Time Machine does everything for you. It makes backing up feasible for people who aren't super geniouses.09:46
waanerUSUL, it's been corrected in fstab, the problem is when the system boots09:46
vr8mferusul: how can i do it? i'm newbie :D09:46
waanerUSUL, also because its a logical partition there is no UUID09:46
luminerdmaco: Windows COMES with a utility to back up your entire system to a _SERIES_ of discs. and restore fully.09:47
vr8mferusul: maybe some link09:47
luminerdOS X has a nice third party one that is very easy to use09:47
macoluminerd: oh, you want mondo and mindi09:47
erUSULvr8mf: edit /etc/network/interfaces see man interfaces09:47
waanerUSUL, I think it might still be looking for a hibernation image from the original UUID09:47
macoluminerd: you say that like there aren't easy tools for backing up linux09:47
ubuntenthuI have a windows xp machine whose IP address is 192.168.1.3 and my ubuntu's IP is 192.168.1.2, if share a folder in xp, say, myshare how do I access from ubuntu?09:47
hateballubuntenthu: Open Nautilus, type in smb://remote.host/share09:48
erUSULwaan: it does not matter if it is logical or primary both have a blkid09:48
ubuntenthufrom windows I would do \\192.168.1.2\myshare\ in run command and it works09:48
belimaco: he does not want to learn/read/think and wants all for free and nothing...but cloning 20 systems..... ;)09:48
luminerdWell, there might well be but I'm sure not seeing anything.  This partimage is an absolute nightmare.  You have to install like 8 libraries just to install it.09:48
macoluminerd: mondo and mindi create a series of cds for bare metal recovery09:48
waanubuntenthu, just go to network09:48
ubuntenthuthanks hateball, let me try.09:48
luminerdmacd: Sounds like exactly what I want09:48
macoluminerd: and partimage isnt for backups09:48
beliluminerd: why not clone the system by with your mac then, if it has a tool for doing it?09:48
waanerUSUL, this is what I get in blkid, /dev/hda5: TYPE="swap"09:49
macoluminerd: rsync -av /home /media/backupdisk for command line09:49
erUSULluminerd: use clonizilla. go to its website for details seems exactly what you want09:49
beliuse what's usefull09:49
macoluminerd: and there are GUI apps too, but ive never tried them.09:49
luminerdmaco: From Partimage's homepage: "This utility can be used to install many identical computers." That is why I was interested in partimage09:49
macoluminerd: its for doing the actual ghosting09:49
erUSULwaan: /dev/sdb2: TYPE="swap" UUID="bfb5c55a-d03d-4b6c-acb3-25fc417eb24f" <<<< that's what i get for mine09:49
waanerUSUL, vol_id shows ID_FS_UUID=09:49
juice__you can use partimage to install to multiple computers09:49
callkalpahi, I use Hardy. There's a problem with the LEDs in my keyboard, anyone specific on this topic ?09:49
juice__make sure to pull out the UUID code and make it /dev/sd** first09:50
macocallkalpa: what exactly is wrong?09:50
Batsmasheranyone able to help me with getting my internet up on my Atheros wireless LAN card which has the installed drivers but is not detecting the wireless input?09:50
luminerdbeli: what are you saying? Virtualize OS X and use time machine? lol... It's a PC running linux, how the hell am I supposed to use my Mac to do that?09:50
mozais feisty before or after hardy?09:50
Flannelmoza: Feisty is 7.04, Hardy is 8.0409:50
macobeli: macs are too stupid to understand ext309:50
macomoza: recite your ABCs09:50
belimaco: uh and that as a bsd system ;)09:51
MilitantPotatohow do I add 'hdparm -a32 -A1 -S42 -W1 /dev/sda' to the file /etc/init.d/rc.local so that hdparm works correctly? how should this file look when I'm done?  http://paste.ubuntu.com/53131/09:51
callkalpawhen I press the Caps key, Num Lock etc. the leds don't lit09:51
callkalpastill the functions are working properly09:51
danielm_mcyoyo - anyone know how to make dpkg stop trying to use gtk frontend?09:51
mozamaco : i didn't realize the first letters of the distributions were an abc.. !09:51
callkalpaOnly the LEDs don't work09:51
macocallkalpa: and you're sure they didnt burn out09:51
mozathank you all09:51
waanerUSUL, any idea what the problem might be then, or how to re-init that swap so the partition is correct?09:52
macomoza: well the first couple were out of order, then someone realized it'd be impossible to remember, so after D it's alphabetical09:52
callkalpayes, at boot all three lights09:52
Batsmasher anyone able to help me with getting my internet up on my Atheros wireless LAN card which has the installed drivers but is not detecting the wireless input? *sighs* :P09:52
erUSULwaan: try "sudo mkswap /dev/hda5"09:52
nicodarioushello09:52
mozamaco : ok, thanks :) and usually, somthing that works under one distrib will be working on the next ones?09:52
macomoza: warty, hoary, breezy, dapper, edgy, feisty, gutsy, hardy, intrepid (due in a few weeks), jaunty (april)09:53
xjohnthomasxhi, can anyone help me get the internet speed much faster for my ubuntu 8.04 hardy heron fresh installation09:53
macomoza: usually, but sometimes their are regressions09:53
xjohnthomasxi usually get 1mb/s.. and now it's suffering at around 100kb/s09:53
luminerdLOL. All the docs for Mondo are "Object not found"09:53
mozamaco : ok, so i keep hope :)09:53
macomoza: we try to keep regressions to a minimum, but i know that due to restructuring of some codebases, there are a few unavoidable ones in intrepid09:53
xjohnthomasxi tried disabling ipv6, tweaking variable settings in sysctl.. etc..09:53
grazianof09:53
nicodariousi have a problem with my nvidia drivers.  i uninstalled envy and tried to reinstall the nvidia drivers with the nvidia-glx-new, but i keep getting an error saying (when manually starting X) API mismatch: the nvidia kernel module has version 96.43.05.09:54
luminerdNo way in hell I'm going to be able to figure this thing out without docs. I don't even know which file to download.09:54
beliluminerd: you can hire me and i bring my external usb drive and do the copies for you ;)09:54
gianfrancoo09:54
waanerUSUL, ok that looks like it did the trick, now I'll chuck the uuid back in fstab instead of hda5. Then figure out why usplash is getting killed. brb09:54
BatsmasherI'm not that sure how I can connect to the internet anyway..09:54
mozamaco : i'm not going to move to intrepid, just sticking to long support versions (i think hardy is one)09:54
erUSULvr8mf: from command line only you can do "sudo ifconfig eth0 netmask 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.10 up" on both ends (with different ips of course)09:55
xjohnthomasxcan anyone help me get my internet speed up faster, with this new hardy installation?09:55
xjohnthomasxi disabled ipv6, tweaked variables.. tried everything people seem to write about in forums.. but no luck yet..09:55
Batsmasher anyone able to help me with getting my internet up on my Atheros wireless LAN card which has the installed drivers but is not detecting the wireless input?09:55
Batsmashersorry about this...09:55
