linaSpherous: oh, I thought it was just the library, like libmozlib00:07
Spherouslina, nope~00:07
soundraySpherous: I think you could try to run nvidia-xconfig to create a new xorg.conf00:07
martin__lina: just extract it to some folder00:07
soundrayjakisktos: did you spell Ethernet with a capital E in that command?00:08
martin__then compile it,00:08
linamartin__: Arctic ^00:08
Arcticnope, it's self sustained00:08
Spheroussoundray, explain how~ when I run sudo nvidia-xconfig in a shell it just spits out some stuff then gives me a new line to type on00:08

Quinn_StormI'm trying out ibex and getting an annoying issue -- networkmanager recognizes my Sierra 881U just fine but it fails to actually connect with it.  The log has it giving up right after 'associating with network' (the AT+COPS line) going 'Setting APN Failed' (though it never set the apn based on that, and I've tried the built-in apn setting for at&t as well as the one I use when I dial it with wvdial.)  It also doesn't use the righ00:13
godlygeekatmat: i run hardy and debian sid on my macbook.00:13

mneptokAziz! LIGHT!00:13
mneptokthank you Aziz.00:13

bobertdosperillux: What are you needing to compile?00:14
perilluxbobertdos, lina: but I don't know how lina, that's why I'm asking.00:14
Spheroussoundray, its the same there00:14
perilluxbobertdos, lina: bobertdos I need to compile something with a makefile00:15
nixcc3f00:15
randyhow do i change the screen resolution on the log in screen00:15
perilluxbobertdos: but if I just run the makefile as is, then it will use gcc version 4.300:15
soundraySpherous: even if you select a generic display with an appropriate resolution?00:15
Spheroussoundray, I selected the driver by make and model now, gonna restart and see if that fixes it00:15
gnychisi know there's a good disk space utility for linux that gives you an idea which folders are taking up the most space,etc... but i can't think of the name, anyone?00:15
perilluxbobertdos: so I'm wondering how I can run the makefile with gcc-4.2  I thought I could just open up the makefile and change all the lines that say "gcc" to "gcc-4.2" but it doesn't have "gcc" anywhere in it00:16
zeno__gnychis: du -hs *00:16
soundrayperillux: 'sudo apt-get install gcc-4.2', then go to /usr/bin and find out which links point to 4.3. Change all of them to point to 4.200:16
zeno__gnychis: if you want a gui search for disk in your package manager00:16
martin__gnychis: it's on application > accesorics > disk usage bla bla00:16
perilluxsoundray: how am I supposed to "find out which links point to 4.3" ?00:17
xim_i have an external ntfs drive that is alwayys giving me trouble.  does linux have a utility that might help me diagnose whats wrong with it?00:17
randywhat program would i use to log on to someones computer00:17
ompaulz00:17
soundrayperillux: 'ls -l /usr/bin | grep ^l | grep 4.3'00:17
ompaulrandy, usually ssh00:17
perilluxsoundray: bobertdos: lina: it sounds like you all are giving me permanent ways to convert to 4.2.  I just want to compile a single file with it.00:18
martin__anyone have ever used playonlinux?00:18
soundrayperillux: this is permanent for as long as you don't change the links back to point to 4.300:18
Spheroussoundray: Okay, my idea didn't work00:18
Spheroussoundray, what was that line again?00:18
ompaulxim_, put it into a windows box, run the defrag stuff and so forth and then have a new look at it, btw it is more offtopic than on topic here00:19
perilluxsoundray: earlier you told me to install 4.2 (i've now done that) and then you said I just have to edit the makefile.  is that still an option?00:19
martin__anyone ever have success in running wow on ubuntu?00:19
soundraySpherous: I'm not going to repeat anything for you. If you value my advice, you make a note.00:19
ompaulwow00:19
martin__no one here here ever installed wow?00:19
martin__ompal: world of warcraft00:19
soundrayperillux: no, you said that the makefile does not call gcc directly. So change the links.00:20
ompaulmartin__, search wiki.ubuntu.com there is a help page there00:20
Spheroussoundray, O.o I was just wondering the line to open that screen up again, the gtk something one~ I didn't write it down and since I rebooted I don't have it in the chat anymore00:20
godlygeekmartin__: i've seen it played through wine with no problems.00:20
martin__i did,. but i got some problem00:20
kitchemartin__: wine works good just follow their instructions that they have as well if you get confused00:20
martin__i did everything00:20

Spheroussoundray, yeah that one.  I'm going to try the generic monitor like you said, but it asks for a driver, where do I find the driver for it?00:21
martin__what about pulseaudio? should i replace it with alsa?00:21
soundraySpherous: it shouldn't ask for a driver00:21
xim_ompaul: hmm ok i figured i could trust linux based diagnostic utilities more but ill ask in ##windows00:21
besthairciao00:22
besthair!00:22

ompaulmartin__, search wiki.ubuntu.com there is a help page there read it again00:22
SpherousSoundray, well I clicked LCD Panel 1024x768 and hit add, and it asks for a driver00:22
bobertdosperillux: Read the manpage for GCC. I know there's a target option for specifying the version in there somewhere.00:22

Spheroussoundray, nevermind, I should of pressed ok.  wants me to restart again, brb00:23

mnslammed87d21 did that get it?00:25
soundrayperillux: that command gave you a list of links in /usr/bin that point to components of gcc-4.3. Now you should do a 'cd /usr/bin' to change to that directory00:25
daigorobrHello, upon inspection of dmesg, I noticed that boot time is halted for a long time "checking for custom DSDT". Is there any way to stop this check?00:25

ajzimmermanI need some help. I installed Hardy Ubuntu on one Hard drive, (second on the list) (Third is for backup), and before that I had XP. XP is on the first hd. Grub was installed on the second hd, so grub doesn't load during start up. When I make the computer start up from the second hd with UBuntu on it, and I select xp from the list, it doesn't load. I'd like to be able to load grub at startup automatically, and be able to access both os's.00:29

soundrayunop: please go ahead and tell perillux that... For me, update-alternatives gcc has never worked (unlike e.g. for java)00:34
ChryLimeadeRickzilla: Try clicking System > Preferences > Sound Preferences.  See if your card is at least listed.00:34
Bigshot_hey ChryLimeade do you know how to start DIA after installing it?00:34
caitlin_Can someone help me figure out why I'm getting no sound? Someone patient because I'm computer illiterate00:34
bustaplzCan anyone tell me what run level I would need to set to boot without GUI and possibly how to set that?00:34
RickZillaChryLimeade:  Yeah, it's listed on the device list00:35
ChryLimeadeBigshot, I don't, I haven't had any experience with that.  Sorry man.00:35
kitchebustaplz: runlevel 3 which ubuntu uses by default you have to use a command like update-init.d or something to disable gdm from starting on boot00:35
ChryLimeaderickzilla: but just plain no sound?  that's weird.00:35
soundraybustaplz: you can boot in single user mode by selecting Recovery mode from the grub menu at boot time00:35
RickZillanope, no sound at all00:35
martin__bobertdos: so how do i get around it?00:36
caitlin_well, it makes a noise when I turn the computer on..but no other time00:36
bustaplzI'm not sure I want single user mode. This machine will be headless and I just want to disable I guess X or gdm to save resources.00:36
RickZillaI'm not sure where to go from here00:36
bustaplzI've done this on Fedora in the past but can't seem to figure it out for Ubuntu.00:36
soundraybustaplz: in that case you shouldn't mess with runlevels00:36
ChryLimeadeyea, the fact that it's listed but just doesn't work is odd to me.00:36
=== mel is now known as Guest47348
bustaplzOkay, so should I be telling gdm or X not to run on boot?00:37
soundraybustaplz: just 'sudo update-rc.d gdm remove'00:37
bobertdosmartin__: Other than switching gstreamer-properties and the rest of the sound settings to Alsa, there's not a whole lot you can do safely.00:37
zeno__on hitting play test sound i get audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink: Failed to connect: Connection refused00:37
martin__bobertdos: how do u switch gstreamer-properties?00:37
soundraybustaplz: Ubuntu uses upstart, which is a modern replacement for the old SysV style runlevels and stuff that Fedora has00:37
ChryLimeadeRickzilla:  Try going to System > Administration > hardwre drivers.  Does it say there are any problems?00:37
bustaplzoh okay00:38
martin__bobertdos: are u talking about one specific program, "gstreamer" or the whole system?00:38
bustaplzi'll try that command and get back to you, thanks for the help00:38
martin__linux sound is confusing00:38
ChryLimeade(yea, it is)00:38
bustaplzdo I need to stop gdm first?00:38
soundraybustaplz: no00:39
soundraybustaplz: the command only removes the startup links00:39
RickZillaChryLimeade:  none listed there00:39
zeno__is intrepid ibis out? package manager jsut started dist-upgrade!00:39

JoshooaHey the pages displayed in my firefox never reach the edges of my screen, even when I zoom in, the stuff gets bigger but the formatting makes to big white bars run down the side. How can I make pages load in the entire firefox window so I can actually see them the way they are supposed to be? I have to magnify EVERY page at LEAST three times to even attempt to read it. (My monitor is also not that great) Does anyone know why Firefox won00:40
IamSOGum/.. how can I set up my xubuntu hardware? it doesn't detect my sound card, or do I need to run menuconfig ?00:41
Spheroussoundray: Hey, when I rebooted it, it put me in low-graphics mode00:41
Spheroussoundray: and my res is now 800x600, still far off from what it should be00:41
JoshooaIf I change page style to no style, it looks like crap but goes to the edges, but basic page style looks better but it all skinny and narrow. ANyone?00:42
ChryLimeadeRickzilla:  try this.  Go into terminal, and type alsamixer and it'll show a list of different volume levels. are anything like "master" or "pcm" turned all the way down?00:42
soundraySpherous: is it running displayconfig-gtk for you?00:42
Spheroussoundray: yeah00:42
RickZillaJust 3D control, and Surround00:43
soundraySpherous: are all the settings in there sensible?00:43
Tigre_oh my god, 1322 users :S00:43
Spheroussoundray, what do you mean?00:43
ChryLimeadehmmm...well, at least try turning those up (press left and right, then up and down to adjust volume), it atleast wouldn't hurt.  See if that makes any difference.00:44
iShockHi guys, any guides to installing PHP-GTK on 8.04?00:44
soundraySpherous: go through all the settings and make sure they are what you expect00:44
diogohey everyone I have a dell vostro 1000 and found out that for some reason ubuntu works better on my dell laptop... I wonder would ubuntu uses some specific patches so it happens?00:44
RickZillaChryLimeade:  They don't turn up or down00:45
ChryLimeadeOhhh...hmm.00:45
RickZillaI did find a driver that might work, though...how do I install those?00:45
Spheroussoundray:  well I don't expect the monitor to be Plug 'n 'play00:45
iShockHi guys, any guides to installing PHP-GTK on 8.04?00:45
Spheroussoundray, or the res to be 800x60000:45
soundraySpherous: so change them appropriately00:45
Spheroussoundray, the res wont go up to what it should be00:46
Spheroussoundray, it sets 800x600 to the maximum00:46

Spherousmartin__, yeah, its hard as hell to get to work with Wine, but I haven't tried it with Cedega yet01:01
bobertdosreticula: If by router, you mean firewall, you could use firestarter. It's a frontend for iptables, really.01:01

Spherousmartin__ ALSA01:08
godlygeekbobertdos: actually, i guess i can add a line to /etc/fstab with noauto...01:08
dr_willisgodlygeek,  you can use the 'noauto' option in the fstab file to do that.01:08
Spherousmartin__ Its OSS, not OGG, by the way~ haha01:08
Niteconbravo7 are you on the ubuntu machine right now?01:08
dr_willisgodlygeek,  and the 'user' or 'users' option would let a user mount/unmount the drive.. (i forget which one, user, or users)01:08
martin__Spherous, hehe.... and i don't think u could restore. but for some file like xorg.conf it has their own backups01:08
RyanPriorSpherous: there is no system restore unless you make regular backups.01:08
martin__Spherous, what do u want to restore?01:09
Niteconbravo7 I will be afk for a few01:09
godlygeekyeah, i don't know why i didn't think of just using noauto until i was prodded here... thanks dr_willis, bobertdos01:09

Coppershade-org^I'd like to keep my files that are* on the windoze partition :)01:23
LjLCoppershade-org^: no, it's not fail safe. it can fail, resizing partitions always can01:24
LjLtherefore, backups are always recommended01:24
RyanPriorMy USB subsystem just died. Can somebody help me restore it without having to reboot my computer?01:24
bobertdosCoppershade-org^: "failsafe" is a pretty absolute term, but it is certainly safer to let the partitioner do it for you than it is to do it yourself01:24
ChryLimeadeaimsux101:  I would MAYBE recommend booting off the xp cd, I think you can do a boot loader repair with that...I'm just concerned about using that to try to fix a vista boot loader.01:24
Coppershade-org^LjL, ok. So I have a D: partition, I go manual and point the livecd to it. Right now the only problem is that at 94% of file copying, grub fails to install. BIOS has no MBR options.01:24

MetalHeadDeadquestion, do I need install an antivirus in ubuntu?01:26
SpherousRHorse: How?01:26
LjLCoppershade-org^: as for the reason why grub doesn't install in the first place - well, the cd could be corrupted (you've checked that of course?), or your partition table might be awkward possibly01:26
bobertdosMetalHeadDead: NO! In fact, uin my experience, they CAUSE problems.01:26
ChryLimeadeaimsux101:  Maybe, but if I remember correctly, that could possibly be due to just not mounting it.01:26

RyanPriorMetalHeadDead: an antivirus doesn't do much because there are no Ubuntu viruses in the wild. However, if you're concerned about passing viruses on to Windows-using friends, you can use ClamScan to check for viruses.01:27

RyanPriorFatalError: If I reboot the computer, the external drive will be perfectly usable again. It's just that after a few hours under load, my USB subsystem peters out and I have to kill it to keep it from corrupting the drive - I have a daemon which monitors dmesg for I/O errors and force-unmounts the drive when it sees them.02:11

bustaplzthe idea that it is going into suspend mode sounds about right, but it's completely powered off, think that could just be a bug with the suspend mode?03:02

bustaplzi just aborted the PC check and looked in my BIOS it, has some power management features including suspend, I just disabled all of them03:05

bill_if SDA is the HD and sda1 is vista whats linux whne installing though vista windows?04:10
danbh_intrepidPostersandGuitar: yes04:10
Flannelbill_: the wubi "partition" is a file in your ntfs partition, that gets mounted through an abstraction layer.  I'm not really sure about the specifics, but as far as you need be concerned for usage, your install is identical to a regular install on a separate partition.04:10
aaron_How long should it take to get UCP certification?04:10
Infinito-when you're on vista, linux would be just some files with the .wubi extension04:10

unopEvilDaemon, kill -9 .. is hardly ever needed - and i should think not - using it only causes more problems, not provide solutions04:25

jim_pgoodmorning05:10
RHorsepuff, don't use wild card after directory -- that is improper syntax. Also, don't use wildcard between dir's .  I donl\t think that'll work. If you have many dir's you can use the switch --exclude-from= and make a text file with one dir per line.05:10

turtle_anyone have a 64b browser05:14
turtle_plzzzz05:14
ArtVandalaepuff, either quote, or use the escape character i.e. \. So something like my\ directory05:14
jim_pChlorate: do you have more than 4GB of ram?05:14
RHorsepuff, I *think* you can escape it with a backslash like some\ dir\ with\ spaces\ in\ it OR you can try single or double quotes around the directory. Not sure. 8 )05:15

roukouni have created a new user in my pc... i dont why but a removable hd change its ownership... now im trying to change it to its default but when im issuing the command: 'sudo chown roukoun /media/My\ Book' it says 'Operation not permitted'05:15

RHorsejim_p, killall firefox-bin05:15
ArtVandalaeroukoun, oh wait, nvm, you're using sudo05:16
roukounArtVandalae: its the new user i created05:16
jim_pChlorate: then go with the 32bit. you will have less trouble with flash05:16
Anzawhat about when it gets so slow, like getting blocked and you cannot get to the terminal, there is like a short cut or something to open it fast?05:16
ArtVandalaeroukoun, try: sudo chown roukoun: /media/MyBook05:16
ArtVandalaeroukoun, note the ":"05:16
jim_pRHorse: correct :P but it was an example05:16

jim_pdfgas: tell him to sudo reboot, and select the uppermost option in grub menu05:21

BrianFreytagI  there is a work around by removing xorg 7.4 and downgrading to 7.305:38
BrianFreytagthere are also rumors about 8.10 of catalyst supporting intrepid... any truth to that rumor, do you know?05:39
bill_i think you must mount the drive as read/write and users defined aswell. fstab or mtab config file05:39
FlannelBrianFreytag: #ubuntu+1 for Intrepid questions, thanks05:39

JasonWoofalthough the screen only brightens the once06:05
Darksaeder`idlehello ubuntu lovers :)06:05
JasonWoofsame things happens with brightness-down06:05
JasonWoofonly way to stop it seems to be to press fn+somethingelse, like fn+pageDn (which is vol-down) or fn+f12 which is scroll lk06:06
Darksaeder`idlecan someone point me in the direction of how to set a bash script to run every...(lets say every hour for examply) that will tell wifi radar to disconnect, then reconnect to a certain router/network06:07
jim_pJasonWoof: do the buttons react like "increase brightness" / "decrease brightness" when they are pressed?06:07
Darksaeder`idleexample*06:07
JasonWoofyes, the screen brightness functions work as expected06:07
Chloratejim_p, Nevermind! I have a CD! I will burn it then06:07
jim_pChlorate: ok then06:08
jim_pJasonWoof: then they work fine. better check if they conflict with some system shortcut06:09
Darksaeder`idleno worries, i found some crontab whitepapers06:09
JasonWoofjim_p: but according to xev there sticking06:10
JasonWoofalso, when I stop the repeating by hitting scroll lock or something, I still can't select in xterm06:10
JasonWoofoh, here's another clue, the KeymapNotify thing from xev always has 103 as the first number06:10
JasonWoofI think that's unusual06:10

ludwig__i guess i could create it.. is it in etc or in bind directories?07:29
marcustomizedvolante, as long as u dont mix between 32 bit and 64 bit pkgs07:29

tritiumowen1: that depends on your router.07:30
marcustomizedthere r no cons to running 32bit unless u have over 3 gigs of ram07:30

haydncI thought 32bit could handle 4GB RAM?07:31

Whilst I can view the live ubuntu without difficulty, installation unfailingly causes the computer to freeze completely or reboot immediately at around 25% (copying of files, after the successful formatting of the harddrive).07:35

physically_fitCheeky, i dunno, i used the other option: i deleted the libflashplayer.so binary first and then i installed flash 1007:36
haydncvolante: 8.10 isn't officially released until the end of this month, you're probably much better off sticking to 8.04 until then. The upgrade path should be pretty easy07:37
jim_pbullgard4: just in case, what theme are you using?07:37
BAMH1It does give an error, yes. Umm... IIRC it copies a bunch of files but gets to the kernel and chokes.07:37

ubottuRPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous)07:58

Lul2xHi. I would like to set up a web server to host my own blog and also use this server to host files that I can access from other computers on my network. I know I can do the latter with Ubuntu Desktop version, but I was wondering if I would be better-off going with the Server version for my needs. What is the main difference between these two? Thanks!08:02
marcustomizedyes08:02
outbackwifiUjjwol: yes08:03
physically_fitCheeky, then you have to run ./flashplayer-installer from that folder08:03
Ujjwolit is returned proprietary in nVidia's site08:03
TidusLul2x: the main difference between the two is simply the last part of the install, where it runs the debian "tasksel" command08:03
jim_pLul2x: desktop setup will get you to a full desktop, server setup will get you to command line only and you ahve to install the rest08:03
outbackwifiLul2x: the server version does not come with a graphical interface08:03
Ujjwolok08:03
Tidusotherwise they're the same distro08:03
Ujjwolhow to install Kde 4.1 in ubuntu hardy08:03
Cheekyphysically_fit: yeah the installer works..and its asking me to give it a path08:04
jim_pLul2x: for the rest of the questions, look at how you can make an http server08:04
Lul2xthanks guys. So I can still successfully run my blog from Ubuntu Desktop? I will need php, mysql, and a few other things. The elimination of the "tasksel" command in the Desktop version won't prevent this?08:04
Cheekyphysically_fit: it asks me this Please enter the installation path of the Mozilla, Netscape,08:05
Cheekyor Opera browser (i.e., /usr/lib/mozilla):08:05
Lul2xjim_p: ok, I'll take a look08:05
znikjim_p cant i use my live cd like an alternate cd?08:05
outbackwifiUjjwol: i guess installing kde-base should do the trick08:05
TidusLul2x: tasksel is simply what's run at the end of the alternate or server install cd08:05
Ujjwolok08:05
jim_pznik: depends on what you want to do08:05
Lul2xI am making a transfer from Gentoo, which has been on my server for a couple of years now and I have become a bit rusty with Linux in the meantime08:05
Ujjwoli am looking to buy Dell XPS m1530 with ubuntu and does the wi-fi and webcam works well in ubuntu08:06
znikjim_p i want to upgrade my gutsy to 8.04.108:06
Lul2xI appreciate the advice!'08:06
* outbackwifi thinks tasksel has Lul2x confused08:06
crisoTidus, in other words after running aptitude, they are exactly the same..08:06
outbackwifiUjjwol: yes08:06
Lul2xa bit, but I can use google to find out exactly what it does :)08:06
crisoLul2x, just install whatever you have08:07
crisoapt has magical online repositories that will work to install whatever you want08:07
crisounless this is an offline webserver :/08:07
Flannel!lamp | Lul2x08:07
ubottuLul2x: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)08:07
Lul2xnope, it'll be online08:07
Ujjwolwhat is messenger to use the video call08:07
Tiduscriso: yes, basically08:07
crisoLul2x, just install with the CD you have and go from there08:07
nxmehtajust started working with ubuntu server- does ubuntu not use inetd?  what's the ubuntu way of dealing with internet services?08:08
TidusLul2x: the server install cd gives you the option to have a pre-configured LAMP server set up, but it's easily doable on the desktop edition as well08:08
Cheekyphysically_fit: does it have to go to the /usr/lib/mozilla  folder ? or the mozilla folder thats hidden in your /home/user directory ?08:08
Tidusnxmehta: i think it uses xinetd08:08
outbackwifinxmehta: xinetd08:08
jim_pznik: if you can add it as a cd rom source, then yes. i dont know if the "nature" of the cd allows it to be added that way. anyway, with the cd rom in the drive run    sudo apt-cdrom add08:08
Lul2xok, cool. This is incredible, you guys are so much help. I'm used to the old-school linux rooms where noone is willing to help--only show their superiority by not helping at all :P08:08
physically_fitCheeky, did you delete the libflashplayer.so that was in your home/mozilla directory?08:09
Lul2xThank Tidus. It would be nice to have the desktop gui and then install LAMP after. The server won't be hardcore, so this way I get the best of both worlds :)08:09
znikjim_p would u join me in an IM?08:09
Cheekyphysically_fit: yes i did08:09
nxmehtaok, xinetd... looks like it's not installed by default on ubuntu server 8.04?  i have to apt-get it...08:09
physically_fitCheeky, if so, then give that path (i never got that question though)08:10
Cheekyphysically_fit: i went to /home/cheeky / .mozilla / plugin and deleted it08:10
physically_fitk08:10
TidusLul2x: see, i hate the old-school linux rooms that did that.  it does nothing to advance the open source world08:10
Lul2xoh, one last thing. is the home directory still the same style? E.g. /home/pat  (I ask b/c I'm afraid some file links may fail when I transfer my server files)08:10
outbackwifiLul2x: yes08:10
TidusLul2x: yes, it's the same style.  that's a LSB standard (Linux Standard Base) which ubuntu loosely adheres to08:11
Lul2xthought so, just wanted to double-check08:11
Lul2xthanks a ton, I'm going to start downloading :D08:11
crisobasically ubuntu doesn't put in enough effort (microsoft..) to come up with crazy ways to breaks everything08:11
Tiduslol... MS releases a patch to fix what they broke in the last patch08:12
outbackwifiLul2x: you might want to install any version that says LTS (long Term Support)08:12
Lul2xok, I'll take a look outbackwifi08:13
Lul2x8.04 looks good (support until 2011)  :)08:13

overriderjoebob777as7, dunno, im just looking for something online so i can easily switch platforms and os, have my wife who uses windows use it also and so on. also, my calendar and taskmanager, projectmanager is online, so naturally id like my finance app to be online, even if its in my local lan08:52
overriderjamesish, ill try, thanks. but i think its hosted only08:52
bustaplzhmmm08:53
hmlis there an easy way in ubuntu to get BadRAM module, or do I have to follow the insturctionss at help.ubuntu.com/community/BadRAM ?08:53
bustaplzCould you tell me how to create on for those directories?08:53
bustaplzI never even considered that!08:53
joebob777as7overrider, do you have a window or linux server on your lan?08:53
nik_has anyone got the patches for WoW to work?08:53
=== Guest87799 is now known as msh
overriderjoebob777as7, yeah08:53
mshI have installed firestarter and I want it to start on each startup how do I do that?08:54
jamesishbustaplz: man ln, paying attention to the ln -s option. OR right click in Nautilus and choose "create shortcut" or whatever it's called.08:54
Daft_Punksay you have a theme you like in emerald but it doesnt use "shade" feature, how can you enable it on that theme?08:54
joebob777as7overrider, you can run it on that and just use nomachine, x forwarding, or rdp (terminal services)08:54
bustaplzhaha doing this through ssh so no easy button for me08:54
joebob777as7it as in gnucash08:54
bustaplzgoing to go investigate, thank you08:54
enzotib_msh: it is the default for the backend, the frontend is started from the menu08:54
overriderjoebob777as7, could :-)08:54
jamesishbustaplz: use ssh -Y then open nautilus.08:54
joebob777as7jamesish, yeah been through that but it doesn't fix my nvidia issue it just sticks me back to using vesa...08:55
marcustomizedjoebob777as7, i tried writing you a new xorg.conf here http://pastebin.ca/121878208:55

bustaplzi'm actually on putty, so that won't work will it?08:55
joebob777as7marcustomized, thx I'll teset it out08:55
mshenzotib: so it means its started on each startup?08:55
Hernzdravim vsechny08:56
jamesishbustaplz: never underestimate X's powers. But ln -s is really what you should use. Surprised you're comfortable using ssh but not ln -s. Putty has some built in X windows stuff, but you'll need to read up on it; naturally, you can't pass in the -Y flag on startup. Try installing cygwin, though, then you can.08:56
dr_willisbustaplz,  with xming, you can x forward x apps to the windows desktop. :)08:56
enzotib_msh: yep, check with pgrep firestarter08:56
bustaplzit's been a while since I've done the linux thing so i've forgotten some commands08:56
marcustomizedjoebob, u may need to adjust the horizontal sync rate i suggested because I pretty much guessed08:57
mshenzotib :ok :)08:57
bustaplzi'll look into xming and cygwin08:57
jamesishbustaplz: makes sense :) With a little time, it'll all come flooding back like some kind of unstoppable nightmare which will haunt your days and nights.08:57
bustaplzsounds interesting08:57
dr_willisbustaplz,  cygwin is a bit out of date i think.. xming is handy.. :)08:58
bustaplzI've been doing this all day08:58
bustaplzi love it08:58
bustaplzokay08:58
bustaplzis it just a client like putty?08:58
DaveKongwhat is the difference between joining through freenode vs ubuntu servers and oftc vs debian servers?08:59
dr_willisbustaplz,  its a X server for windows.08:59
dr_willisbustaplz,  it can work with putty08:59
bustaplzhaha you're going to have me up all night08:59
Daft_Punksay you have a theme you like in emerald but it doesnt use "shade" feature, how can you enable it on that theme?09:00
bustaplzi imagine I have to be running X running to use something like Xming?09:00
jamesishX has to be installed on both machines, but it doesn't have to be running on both, only on the local machine.09:02

xjohnthomasxwhy does gstreamer exist, if it messes up and doesnt work?09:30

marcustomizedslytherin, my mistake, i dont use ubuntu, just going off of stuff i vaguely remember about Fiesty09:32

macoDaveKong: see the 64?09:33
Kelenmaco: in addition. is it possible for ubuntu to upgrade kernel automatically?09:33

xjohnthomasxmarcustomized: mpg09:34
DaveKongmaco I see a 64 but not in the kernel name just the part later09:34
Peddymaco: so is eth0 not being used at all?09:34
Peddyif I use wifi09:34
macoKelen: i dont believe so. that's a big change and requires a reboot. automatic rebooting while you're doing important things isn't my idea of a feature.09:34
slytherinxjohnthomasx: I don't understand why you are having trouble playing it with totem-gstreamer. Did you install all the gstreamer codecs in repositories?09:34
slytherinPeddy: of course not09:34
martPeddy, yes09:34
xjohnthomasxslytherin: how will i know?09:34
marcustomizedsee, i've always used only one backend for everything, he's mixing them09:34
macoDaveKong: yeah, that's the part that tells you. -a is "all" i forget which flag (-r maybe?) tells just the architecture09:34
slytherinxjohnthomasx: open System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager and search for gstreamer.09:35
xjohnthomasxok, and then what?09:35
Peddythanks maco09:35
xjohnthomasxslytherin: ok and then what?09:35

macoDaveKong: /me looks at you funny.  "grub should have been automatically set up"09:37
martit isn't use09:37

xjohnthomasxmarcustomized: it seems to have at least one of each of those sets.. it doesn't have a few packages from each of those sets, usually with suffix -db or -dc etc.09:37

MAdWizard`This motherbaord has a nVidia chipset, and yes nVidia wrote drivers for linux10:27
marcustomizedMAdWizard, you dont really need drivers for anything besides graphics cards and obscure sound cards10:28
plouffeziroday, I just checked that file (menu.lst). Apparently it is not being used. How can I make sure that the menu.lst on this partition is used and not another?10:28
marcustomizedif u intend on jus using ubuntu as a headless server, u can use the "vesa" driver or the "nv" driver10:28
crazy_busslytherin: cheese to record the video and either skype or ekiga10:29
zirodayplouffe: what do you mean its not being used? Is the file empty?10:29
MAdWizard`marcus, reading through the tons of stuff it told me to get full use of the AMD Atrhalon dual core, I need the 64 bit drivers10:29
plouffeNo the entries are different, It must be using hte menu.lst from another partition10:29
crazy_busslytherin: as I can't find a program which will record a received webcam conversation on the other end10:29
Datenshi33Hi there10:29
rskiMAdWizard`: you really should install 64bit ubuntu instead, less hasstle10:29
slytherinplouffe: why do you think that file is not being used?10:29
MAdWizard`rski, is that a driverset or OS?10:30
rskiMAdWizard`: also you really don't gain much upgrading to 64bit10:30
zirodayplouffe: are you running multiple linux distro's?10:30
plouffeziroday, I did a test install on another partition, but I am not using that partition anymore. So I need to make sure it's using this partition's boot files before I delete the other partition10:30
marcustomized64 bit drivers will b preinstalled as well if u use the 64bit ubuntu disc10:30
rskiMAdWizard`: you have 32bit ubuntu installed from a 32bit ubuntu cd there is also a 64bit ubuntu install cd with 64bit ubuntu10:30

ubottuplouffe, please see my private message10:30

NaamakauhuHey, I'm installing ubuntu atm. Just wondering if I'd like to keep my windows and install ubuntu for the 50gb free space am I supposed to create a partition and choose Primary or Logical and beginning or end? Dont take me wrong, I'm just pretty new with this stuff10:41
simon49#sikelo10:41
davidryderzer0_: everyone has different experiences with wubi but mine was not good. i ended up uninstalling it and creating a dual-boot system. because it's a virtual environment and it's also a new project disk reliability is low10:41
