After rebooting the server the client still cannot access the folder (but all other folders on the same NFS mount). Who's the suspect... the server or the client machine?00:22

Odd-rationale!alternative | FlyerFanatic00:57
ferretonthelusunop; this is the first one http://paste.ubuntu.com/54478/00:57
ubottuFlyerFanatic: The Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD.  Look for the alternate checkbox on the Ubuntu download page - See also !minimal - Torrent at http://releases.ubuntu.com/8.04.1/ubuntu-8.04.1-alternate-i386.iso.torrent00:57
bloodrockFlyerFanatic, did you try any of the boot options like acpi=off00:57
justdaveI appear to have several things hosed here, not sure what happened.  Besides the wrong stuff displaying on the desktop, it's ignoring the setting to start a VNC server, and I'm having to start that manually from the command line00:57
bobertdosKiller--Tux: fix the quality in what regard?00:58
ferretonthelusunop; and the second. http://paste.ubuntu.com/54480/00:58
FlyerFanaticwhat does turning acpi off do...i think i read that screws comp up00:58
Killer--Tuxbibertdos - ?!?00:58
kMarfi:  Wireshark spits out an error on any kind of file-save operation, it seems.00:58
Marfik, tried to reinstall it? moving to my laptop...brb00:59
Brian4120If acpi=off, doesnt that usually mean it disables advanced options like sleepmode?00:59
ferretonthelusunop, sorry for the distractions...busy watching the bucs and rays lose.... :>)00:59
bobertdosKiller--Tux: What do you mean "fix" the video quality?00:59
Killer--Tuxbibertdos - improve it01:00
unopferretonthelus, i'm not sure what is - but   sudo dpkg --clear-avail && sudo apt-get update01:00
aurel42Killer--Tux: buy a better monitor?01:00
ferretonthelusunop. watching the football and baseball.......01:00
Killer--Tuxbibertdos - when i recored my screen and i send the video to someone the quality is bad01:00
bobertdosFlyerFanatic: Oh yeah!! Disabling acpi......that's what I couldn't think of earlier!01:00
Killer--Tux<aurel42> well i have a 36" sony01:01
aurel42Killer--Tux: try increasing the video quality or "bitrate" in the capturing application.01:01
Killer--Tux<aurel42> tht not the problem01:01
unopferretonthelus, ahh, make sense, sounds very american  and i'm not american ::)01:01
FlyerFanaticwhat does that even do?01:01
Lengmanhow do i turn on ssh server?01:01
JoeFoolyo, how can I search for files or file types in certain folders/directories?01:01
aurel42Killer--Tux: the more details you provide, the higher the chance of someone understanding your problem. ;)01:02
Killer--Tux<aurel42> but how about on videos i have already recorded01:02
dr_willisJoeFool,  the 'find' command is handy for that task01:02
ferretonthelusoh.....sorry...didn't know.......forgive my ignorance......01:02
unopJoeFool,  there's a couple of ways - but define "file types"01:02
Flamelorwhich is the Meta key and which the Hyper key on my keyboard?01:02
JoeFoolhow do I do that?01:02
ferretonthelusunop; http://paste.ubuntu.com/54481/01:02
Killer--Tuxaurel42 : do you understand what i am trying to say ?!?01:02
unopferretonthelus, ok now?   ls -l /var/lib/dpkg/available01:02
JoeFoollike- "find file types home/joe/music .wav"?01:03
pookmuWhy is it that if I use any music player, then sound doesnt work through my browser?01:03
Lengmanapt-get says there's  no package sshd, whats it called?01:03
aurel42Killer--Tux: I suspect that's not possible, but it might depend on your capture application.01:03
FlannelLengman: openssh-server01:03
FlyerFanatichard to get help in here...to much text :)01:03
Lengmanok thx01:03
dr_willisJoeFool,  i would tart with 'man find' and oerhaps google for sojme 'find tutorials'01:03
unopJoeFool, to find .wav files.   find /directory -iname "*.wav"01:03
LjLJoeFool: case Insensitive Name01:03
dr_willisJoeFool,  theres also the 'locate' command if youjust want to find files based on name01:03
unopJoeFool, you should read the man page :)01:03
aurel42Killer--Tux: I think I understand that you use some tool to record videos of your desktop activity and that the quality is too low (blurry text in the video etc.). Correct?01:04
JoeFoolthis is easier, though. thanks for the help01:04
Killer--Tuxaurel42 : yes01:04
FlyerFanaticwell just sounds like my comp is to high tech to even install linux...thanks for the help anyways01:04
bobertdosFlyerFanatic: ACPI is a standard that regulates power management and hardware configuration, usually important, but it can interfere with Linux's boot sequence sometimes.01:04
aurel42Killer--Tux: unless that tool keeps high-res raw data and produces bad-quality videos afterwards, there's no chance to improve videos after the fact.01:05
unopferretonthelus, finally - now, it looks like we fixed these errors - is there anything else that you're having trouble with?01:05
Killer--Tuxaurel42 : oo01:05
tenXFlyerFanatic: and narrowing your issue down to acpi could help you to take further steps01:05
pookmuIm having problems with sound in firefox.01:05
dr_willisFlyerFanatic,  problem is the makers.. dont follow their own specs at times.01:05
Killer--Tuxaurel42 : this is going to be tough01:05
ferretonthelusunop; no...i seee the - sign has changed to a down arrow...is this good?01:05
dr_willisFlyerFanatic,  the next ubuntu release might just fix the problems.. :) that happened on my last laptop..01:05
LjLunop: i guess there's some amount of risk that what he's actually got installed doesn't correspond with what's in status, though...01:06
FlyerFanaticdont wanna mess with any power settings...i could end up screwing something up..dont wanna end up not being able to power up vista or anything01:06
aurel42Killer--Tux: you produced a lot of videos without checking the quality on a sample first? ;)01:06
tenXdr_willis: why might it fix acpi trouble?01:06
smokeythemanwhich filetype is run in terminal01:06
palwhen Ubuntu 9.04 will be relesed?01:06
dr_willistenX,  In my case.. there was some updated kernel patches that  were in the next release...01:06
Killer--Tuxaurel42 : pretty much01:06
bimberipal: april01:06
Killer--Tuxaurel42 : lol01:07
dr_willistenX,  befor that - the laptop had all kinds of issues..01:07
bobertdosFlyerFanatic: It won't be permanent. It only affects the one session, since it's part of the boot options.01:07
pookmuanyone help me with sound problems?01:07
ferretonthelusunop; actually it is an red down arrow with an ! in the middle of it....01:07
tenXdr_willis: i see so those are workaround for errorness acpi tables?01:07
FlyerFanaticso insert the ubuntu disc when the menu loads it will be in the menu?01:08
unopferretonthelus, what is this you are talking about tho? i'm not sure what you mean01:08
dr_willistenX,  some times.  its also worth while to check for bios updates from the makers.01:08
xfmI have installed the facebook plugin, but I can't see it in pidgin01:08
bobertdosFlyerFanatic: Yeah, it's somewhere in the boot options when you hit one of the function keys, I forget which01:08
ferretonthelusunop; WOW .......you are good! thanks.......1jillion times...thanks....01:09
FlyerFanaticoh you mean in my bios or in ubuntu options?01:09
tenXdr_willis: okay the last one i was aware of. just bare interest in the patches. are they distribution dependend or also included in vanilla kernels?01:09
unopferretonthelus, hold on, there's one last thing to do01:09
JoelitoHi all :) Anyone here had successfully run aspx files with lighttpd?01:09
Brian4120Hey everyone again! If my /etc/network/interfaces contains only "auto lo" and "iface lo inet loopback" would that be a reason why I am uable to ping any address?01:09
bobertdospookmu: The "one program at a time" problem is a bug in Pulse. With flash 9, you need libflashsupport for audio support.01:10
ferretonthelusunop, sordry....normally where the orange star is, to tell us there are updates...there has been a red ball with a whhite - in the middle of it.....01:10
pookmuso do a apt-get libflashsupport?01:10
tenXBrian4120: in a way. the question would be why no other network devices appear in your file01:10
badfishbobertdos: can i just apt-et libflashsupport?01:10
dr_willistenX,  i imagine they get sent upstream.  so they get  into vanilla befor too long.01:10
* bobertdos is sufficiently annoyed to go write an addendum for the soundtroubleshooting article.01:10
ferretonthelusoh,, i already selected to do the updates......?01:11
pookmusorry bobertdos01:11
tenXdr_willis: thanks for your information01:11
unopferretonthelus, you mean in the notification area ??01:11
bobertdospookmu: No, no, I wasn't directing that at you. I've just had to explain this to too many people the past few months.01:12
unopferretonthelus,  ls /usr/share/doc | grep -v [A-Z] | grep -v '^texmf$' | grep -v '^debian$' | awk '{print $1 " install"}' | dpkg --set-selections && sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade01:12
ferretonthelusunop; if it is not impolite t ask, i would like to know where you are located.....yes, in the notification area......01:12
bimberiBrian4120: that interfaces file is normal for networking managed by NetworkManager. can you ping localhost?01:12
dr_willistenX,  yea. My laptop was totally unuseable when i first got it under ubuntu, then 2 mo later..  a new ubuntu release and its  100% :)01:12
tenXBrian4120: check for unmentioned networking devices with ifconfig -a01:12

Brian4120tenX: I get an eth0, lo, wlan0 and wmaster 001:13
tenXdr_willis: fortunately i never ran into acpi problems with any system where i actually had to install linux. only with live cds for fixing issues01:13
unopferretonthelus, yep01:13
Brian4120tenX: For with and without -a01:13
ferretonthelusunop, of should i say both lines?01:13
unopferretonthelus, it's actually only one big line01:14
tenXBrian4120: to get the wanted network support on boot up, you'd have to configure your devices the way you want in the interfaces file01:14
LjLmd22: "apt-cache search hex editor" gives no good suggestions?01:14
bimberiBrian4120: any of the interfaces have an "inet addr" other than ?01:14
tenXBrian4120: since those devices are present, the drivers are loaded and the devices should be usable01:14
ferretonthelusunop, it is still loading 85 updates...should i wait for it to finnish?01:14
mikeculverI just upgraded to a new motherboard and can't get my Ubuntu to boot.  I can't even get the desktop CD to boot.  What can I do to fix this?01:14
md22LjL: thanks for that01:15
tenXBrian4120: from that point its probably only a matter of configuring parameters for you environment01:15
LjLmd22: i use khexedit myself, no line numbers though.01:15
tenXBrian4120: dhcp or static addressing01:15
FlyerFanaticthis is so frustrating....my computer always gives me problems..never is just installing something going to make it easy01:15
Brian4120bimberi: Only eth0 has my local IP (Currently connected to that interface. but this problem is with that and wlan0)01:15
unopferretonthelus, well, i'm guessing if you haven't experienced anything out of the ordinary by now, everything's ok - so let these updates finish and then run this command.   sudo aptitude safe-upgrade01:15
BobPenguinhello there. I'm sorry to say I've been having a lot of issues with multimedia related applications on UbuntuStudio 8.04. The most annoying ones are related to Ardour and Lives Video Editor.

Brian4120By local IP i mean my routers DHCP given ip01:16

SpherousGuys, when I open Cedega and start my Spore Free Trial my screen goes black and says "Cannot display this video mode" I passed all the diagnostics and I had Compiz disabled... I am running an EVGA NVIDIA Geforce 7950GT KO Superclock... so I don't understand why its not working. it has nothing to do with Cedega, thats why I'm asking here, its a problem with some video driver I thin, but when I tried to reinstall my video driver,01:44
luminrdthanks guys01:44
kitcheSpherous: it has to deal with cedega ask them01:44
EvilDaemonSpherous: #cedega ##cedega ?01:45
Spherouskitche, No one answers there~ and I can't post on their forums unless I pay for a subscription, well I'm not gonna pay for something before it works01:45
dr_willisSpherous,  ive heard that wine/cedega has some issues with SPORE.01:45
kitcheSpherous: well then what are you using a trial software?01:46
Spherousdr_willis, the Spore Trial is their free thing to see if you can get Cedega working before you pay01:46
TurlSpherous: look in getdeb.net, there's a plain wine patched to support spore01:46

Spherouskitche, full software, but a trial account, you sign in to an account every time you start the program01:46
dr_willisSpherous,  you mean to say the 'cedega' free trial is called 'spore' ?01:46

kitcheSpherous: I know what cedega is well if you have full software then you most likely downloaded it someplace fishy since you have to buy for the software01:47
Turlneeto: iphoneOS is just Macintosh01:47
Spherousdr_willis, no... They advertize the Spore free trial on their software01:47

Oilfurnacehow would coke help?01:48
kitcheSpherous: well ask cedega since they would know more about their software then we would here01:48
TurlOilfurnace, I was told coke "eats" the oxidation01:48
Spherousdr_willis, right, but I can't get the trial to work, so I don't want to pay for it to get WoW to work before I can even get something they advertise as a testing game to work01:48
FlyerFanaticwho was helping me i forget...in a pm01:48
fx3Oilfurnace, you want something like WD40, hold on, did you say rust? copper pipe?01:49
kitcheSpherous: sounds like you need to do some editting to cedega's configuration01:49
Oilfurnacecopper pipes yeah green stuff01:49
xompcopper does not rust, it oxodizes don't it?01:49
Oilfurnacething that carrys hot water01:49
Spherouskitche, how do you propose I go about doing that? I can't put in a ticket unless I pay for a membership, I can't post on the forums, and I've asked in #cedega many times with no one answering me01:49

the9a3eediFreshUbuntuNoob: yes, but I had them a long time ago. I also have KDE too lol04:56
FreshUbuntuNoobimchrislabeard, That means the file system wasn't closed properly. You need to mount the partition from terminal04:56

imchrislabeardFreshUbuntuNoob: so mount -t or what04:56
Arlianinhey Spherous04:56
FreshUbuntuNoobthe9a3eedi, Yes, apparently, while starting up, mplayer tries to disable the screensaver apps, one of them involves dcopserver, if I am not mistaken, and it is actually not running, so mplayer waits for it to respond, and then fails after 5 seconds04:56
SpherousArlianin, I PMed you, please check it04:57
FreshUbuntuNoobthe9a3eedi, I solved the problem by reinstalling Amarok ( the only app using KDE libs on my PC), but there might be other better ways of doing it04:57
the9a3eediFreshUbuntuNoob: Interesting o_o04:57
the9a3eedithanks a lot! :D04:57

marcustomizedblak, exactly05:15
marcustomizedu can edit unmounted partition tho05:15

jim_pblak: anything that gparted can do needs an UNMOUNTED disk to be done, thus you better with a live enviroment05:15
blakok so  i basically need to boot from the ubuntu cd and partiation?05:15
blakthanks jim_p and marcustomized05:16
blakwill do05:16
danbh_intrepidFlyerFanatic: well, it cant hurt to try the beta livecd, especially if you are using cdrws: http://releases.ubuntu.com/releases/8.10/ubuntu-8.10-beta-alternate-i386.iso05:16
isgoungoohow to deal with fonts05:16
jim_pisgoungoo: are they ugly? use the ms ones05:16
FlyerFanatici am righ in saying i dont have to partition or anything right? all i'm trying to do is play around with ubuntu not change anything so i just need to boot from disk right05:17
luminrdI have some identical machines running Ubuntu. One is running a really low resolution (this one did too at first but I can't remember the exact steps to fix it).  But I installed the nvidia 3rd party driver and copied the xorg.conf from the working one, so the xorg.conf is exactly the same.. how can it still be running low res??05:17
danbh_intrepidFlyerFanatic: with the livecd, yes05:17

jim_pWalkingAsterisk: how do you install vmware server? you opened the tar.gz file with gdebi?05:23
FlyerFanatichaha ok05:23
danbh_intrepidluminrd: well, you could try reconfiguring xorg, then disabling the 3d drivers, and then re-enabling05:23
FlyerFanaticthats what i thought05:23
WalkingAsteriskno apt-get install vmware-server05:23
jim_pi am afraid i have to ask again... is vmware server included in a repo?05:23
danbh_intrepidluminrd: lowercase h, but I think thats it.  They keep changing it05:24
WalkingAsteriski done an apt-cache search and it was there05:24
sheepjim_p: I don't think so05:24

rebel_kidjim_p, well how do i find the vbox version, just installed it today im assuming the current05:35

FlyerFanaticohhh...so maybe even just wait for the new version at the end of the month?05:36
OrangeKyolol no he wants 4 workspaces on 1 monitor05:36

SexyKenHey anyone here have experience with configuring dual monitors with 2 different video cards?05:40
FFEMTcJzerox20: should be able to05:41
jim_prebel_kid: a) upgrade because you will soon run into dependency problems b) right click on the virtual machine >settings > Advanced > is the checkbox that says "Enable VT-x/AM-V" enabled?05:41
FFEMTcJSexyKen: what type of cards05:41
rebel_kidjim_p, no it wasnt :(05:41
Doc8404ok so now my second question... on hardware i never set up ad 3d driver... but yet i can cube???? wtf lol05:41
zerox20FFEMTcJ: how would i go about doing that?05:41
SexyKenFFEMTcJ:  Just brand?  nVidia05:41
jim_prebel_kid: what cpu do you have?05:42
rebel_kidjim_p intel centrino duo pos05:42
jim_prroblak: then you need to make a script, but since the connection fails, it will be interupted too05:42
FFEMTcJzerox20: you are wanting to just make a VB of a different distro correct?05:42
jim_prebel_kid: do you know the exact name of the model, like E8400?05:43
rebel_kidjim_p no i do not05:43

zerox20FFEMTcJ: well i already have the partitioned space and ahve started a gentoo install, i don't entirely feel comfortable working entirely from taht command line, so i was wondering if there was a way i can run it virtually through ubuntu until i have gentoo configured correctly05:43
FFEMTcJSexyKen:have you tried using nvidia-settings05:43
SexyKenFFEMTcJ:  Yea, it only shows GPU0 and Screen005:44
jim_prebel_kid: cat /proc/cpuinfo05:44
FFEMTcJzerox20: you would have to create a new virtual install.. i dont believe that you could turn that into a virtual install05:44
rebel_kidjim_p model 1505:44

jamieyg3hi, i just installed ubuntu because i need linux for school.. anyways i'm supposed to go to the terminal and login as root but i don't remember ever setting a root password, and i just installed this about an hour ago... is there a default or is there even a root user with ubuntu?05:45
FFEMTcJjamieyg3: sudo passwd root < will change it05:45

Luriahi, does anyone use ubuntu eee?05:46
rebel_kidjim_p, T730005:46

rebel_kiddoc8404, you dont need a firewall or antivirus linux doesnt have those problems, so dont worry about it :D05:47
SexyKenFFEMTcJ:  In hardware drivers it shows only:  "Device Driver:  NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (latest cards)"05:47
jim_prebel_kid: ok your cpu does support the VT-x instruction set, tick on  that checkbox05:48
DigitalFizDoc8404, should always have a firewall but ubuntu has iptables already setup for you05:48
FFEMTcJSexyKen: is linux detecting both of them?05:48
Doc8404i used to use bit defender...05:48
SexyKenlspci shows both...05:48

Hentaycan someone help me with gdesklets?07:05
Doc8404all in one... all in one... ima start creating all in one packaged lol07:06
davidryderHentay: try screenlets07:06
bdunnjoejoecircusboy: ? ( at <incomplete> on eth007:06
davidryderjim_p: you know of any plugins equivalent to downthemall in opera?07:06
Hentayscreenlets the same shit like gdesklets?07:06
davidryderHentay: yes, just WAAAy better IMO07:06
davidryderthey just work07:06
Hentayoh clear07:06
joejoecircusboybdunn: what ip address is assigned to eth0 on the linux gatway?07:06
davidryderi spent like 2 hours trying to get gdesklets to work07:07
Hentaywith gdesklets i had problem07:07
Hentayi install it and then i try to start it it fails07:07
jim_pdavidryder: i just use the Links menu from the side panel to get the links, copy them on list.txt and wget gets the rest done07:07
joejoecircusboybdunn: this is one signel switched network, correct? (there are no routers involved)07:07
jim_pdavidryder: if someone is capable of making a script out of it...07:08
electrofreakI'm running 2.6.24... and when I view 'dmesg' it prints out numbers before each message.... which I know are the number of seconds since boot. But is there a way to make it display the time and date that message occured? it's kind of annoying that I don't know if errors that it prints happened today or last week.07:08
davidryderHentay: http://www.phpstory.net/graphics/ss_Oct_06_2008_0207.png07:08
davidryderthat's screenlets07:08
Doc8404anyone here familiar with wallclocks?07:09
bdunnjoejoecircusboy: Yes... all connected via MPLS - ethernet hand offs.07:09
Hentaydavidryder:  i am doenloading it via synaptic07:09
Hentayi'll try it07:09
macvrDoc8404: are u looking for desktop clocks?07:09
Doc8404yeah i had one but it wouldnt work07:09
jim_pelectrofreak: if you open /var/log/messages, either with cat or some text editor, you will get the dmesg output + the date07:10
macvrDoc8404: use screenlets07:10
electrofreakjim_p, actually, I just discovered /var/log/kern.log.07:11
jim_pelectrofreak: you are welcome07:11
joejoecircusboybdunn: hmm, haven't played with MPLS before.... but this sounds like a <layer 3 problem (if arp is not working)07:12
Hentayscreenlets is for amd64?07:13
joejoecircusboybdunn: are the various '/24s' within your network handled differently at the MPLS layer?07:13
PucKidHentay: yes they work on amd64 also07:13
davidryderelectrofreak: you could also try dmesg | tail07:13
davidryderit will print out the last several errors07:13
Hentayhuh ok than... because gdesklets don;t work on it07:13
bdunnjoejoecircusboy: I don't believe so... this is pretty much a large ethernet connection somewhat invisible to the local network.  Everything connected at 100MBs just like a local LAN.  Transparent.07:14
davidryderHentay: did you get screenlets working?07:15
joejoecircusboybdunn: hmm.. ok.   Can anthing outside of 10.200.2.x reach a host in 10.200.2.x?07:15
bdunnYes, for example can ping and reach (printer) but not (printer).07:16

ubottuFor Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto07:37
dialmanWIGGMPk: Weird. I have no idea then. If you want to try on a lark to see if it is the same problem I had (and you were using pulseaudio): open a terminal and run pulseaudio. That was how I figured it out (audio should suddenly start working if that's the problem)07:37

DaCapnHentay installations of AutoCAD after 2000 require .NET framework. This is notoriously a problem for wine and similars. Mono doesn't show additional promise.08:19

ActionParsnipaussie_nutt: gotta love weird hardwrae11:55
aussie_nuttwell i find it so strange cuz wat action said it be safe to take out11:55
natalisushkadrowner29_: yes, I know, but since I am using ubuntu, and it's an operating system that can play with partitions, then I guess I could find help here!11:55
drowner29_yes, you can11:55
aussie_nuttand thinking that usb port doesnt go suspend mode like windows so then power still going to it11:56
aussie_nuttaction : yeah i know11:56
bazookabut that means it is still mounted ...and the unmount has failed11:56
ikonianatalisushka what is the actual issue, everything seems to be working fine11:56
drowner29_natalisushka: What do you want help with?11:56
drowner29_natalisushka: the last thing you said was 'everything is working fine and you were logged into ubuntu'11:56
drowner29_which is also my current status, too11:56
aussie_nutthmm maybe11:57
aussie_nuttwat ubuntu u using11:57

bazookathis is 8.0411:57
bazookahas 6.06 earlier ..that was fine11:57
bazooka8.04 never was11:57
aussie_nuttas action said weird hardware but just unmount and wait few seconds and take it out the script really only puts port in suspend mode like windows n light go off11:58
aussie_nuttbut u still have unmount11:58
natalisushkaikonia: drowner29_ .. I don't know how you see the post but to me the last sentence was : I rebooted and installed DesktopBSD on the free partition, and after that its grub detected ubuntu .. but when I tried to login to ubuntu I received an error in the unix: Error: Unable to mount partition! from DeskTopBSD and live ubuntu CD I am able to see the files of other partitions including ubuntu partition. how can I solve 11:59
bazookahahaha i think pulling it out abruptly is easier11:59
HUNTER_byteHow do I know which packages were installed the last time I used aptitude?11:59
natalisushkaikonia: drowner29_: probably it's the webbased IRC that I am using11:59
ActionParsnipnatalisushka: your partition names will have changed as you have been playing with them. You will need to edit /etc/fstab to reflect your new partition names11:59
aussie_nuttlmao if u want do that way then do it12:00
ikonianatalisushka ok, your partition table has changed, so you'll need to make sure your menu.lst is up to date, and grub references the correct partition for menu.lst12:00
ActionParsnipnatalisushka: you will need to change this in your ubuntu boot12:00
ActionParsnipnatalisushka: as well as what ikonia says12:00

halyconHey everyone I keep getting all these problems saying I have the "wrong architecture" when I am installing things.

ruediixgholm, that's a tough one, what type of system is it, and also run a check on the CD like mentioned above.12:11

MrKenniethen you are running a 64bit version of ubuntu and you have a 64bit processor.12:13
smm289Action: ya it works fine, it just has a few bugs, especially in seam-less mode and I think V2 address that, other than that its works perfect, but seeing that its not listed in the add/remove i will just leave it alone12:13
