DanskmandHowdy :-) - I am installing my new server with ubuntu 8.04 Server on a single 20 Gig-HD....When configuring the HD, I am presented with the choice of how to configure it. I want to use LVM....2 questions: 1st: Do I first use the whole HD as 1 PV and then make the needed LV's, which I format as f.ex. ext3 ?  -2nd: Can my boot partition (/) be part of a LVM ?00:12
shingenkevin7kal: ahh, I've used gtsm before... it manages tunnels... it lacked the features I required (-D for socks-like proxies)... but it doesn't do the network proxy portion... I don't need a SSH manager... I actually need a super configurable proxy manager like tsocks, but works at a daemon level to redirect all traffic00:12
shingendoes a more robust version of gnome network proxy manager exist, so that I can redirect traffic to different SOCKS proxies by domain name?  Or is that something that can only be done by iptables?00:12
MetalHeadDeadwhats a good network traffic monitor for ubuntu?00:12
ikoniaDanskmand: if your using a single disk - lvm is not really needed, more so as you'll need a /boot00:12
ikoniaDanskmand: lvm works better if you use the whole disk as a pv, but you can use partitions00:13
JC_Denton_MetalHeadDead: firestarter does some basic monitoring00:13
blakWhy would you need a /boot, isn't that no longer necessary00:13
=== GhOsT_KiLleR is now known as FireBreaker
=== FireBreaker is now known as Fire
Danskmandikonia: I know I wont really need LVM for a single disk, but I would like to because I might want to put more in later....00:14
Mrfois there an easy way to send an existing process to the background. my XDMCP login froze up (but the processes are still running okay), and I'd like to send some of those running processes to the background so I can turn this remote machine off00:14
ikoniaDanskmand: then configure lvm when you put more disks in later00:14
Mrfoi would ctrl-z it, but i can't access that shell anymore00:15
deathtechHey guys, i have downloaded an application (Maniadrive) and it shows two files in the directory, start.sh and init.sh , i tried a sudo sh start.sh, but it only returns the error that it couldnt change to some directory, im doing it wrong! lol help ?00:15
ColeosisAnyone here running Ubuntu on a Macbook?00:15
deathtechi moved the file to opt/data where it requested, and when i run it , it works, but i feel like im doing it wrong....00:15
Danskmandikonia: Oh, that can be done later ? - Make several ext3-partitions and put data on, and then later convert the whole thing to LVM ?00:15
ikoniaDanskmand: can do, quite easy00:16
blakdeathtech: if it is working, what might be wrong, is drive mania working now?00:16
deathtechi mean yeah, but i had to move it to opt/data , and i have to run using sudo00:16
DanskmandOk....I dont think that was possible on the AIX machines back in the days (1998) when I learned LVM :-)00:17
ryan__Do you need a Firewall software when using Ubuntu?00:17
blakdeathtech: i would say that is fine then00:17
DanskmandWhat filesystem would you use on ubuntu ?00:17
blakdeathtech: a lot of programs would require sudo to run, especially something that sounds like it does something with drives...?00:17

DigitalFizhey guys guess what!00:19
loshershingen: re: proxies, I think it depends on your requirements. Can you say more about what you're trying to do?00:19
deathtechnah not htat big of a deal, im a windows admin making the nix plunge and jsut testing the water, figured it shouldnt need restrictive access or me to move it to a specific directory to install, wanted to make sure i was doing it right00:19
Aggrav8dhi!  I'm looking for some info about a way to automate the creation/management of subdomains.  I'm looking for keywords I should be googling.  anyone got suggestions?00:19
deathtechjust also i ahve downloaded a few programs and most of them ccome with data files, init.sh and start.sh , and considering i want to know procedure for installing these, or are they pre built and ready to run like this application00:20
blakdeathtech: to install yes, to move depends no the chmod00:20

=== vip is now known as free_vip
blakdeathtech: From my understanding a .sh is generally a script that if it does much of anything, will always need you to run it as root or (sudo)00:21

md22hello if you guys had to choose a system to install ubuntu (for multimedia and coding) which on ewould you choose : 1)Athlon x2 6000, 4GB ram ,radeon HD380,Creative Xfi sound card  or 2)Pentium D 2GHZ ,Intel GMA950, 2GB ram,onboard sound01:29
MrWizeGuy1983md22, i'd use it on the 64 bit one01:30
MrWizeGuy198364 bit ubuntu is great01:30
MrWizeGuy1983pentium d is nice too, but it's a 32 bit01:30
fionI'd used it on the 32 bit one01:30
MrWizeGuy1983why would you do that?01:31
MrWizeGuy198332 bit is becoming a thing of the past...01:31
fionmy computer is so old01:32
morth_overclock that badboy then :)01:32
md22fion:any advantage in choosing the 32bit over the 64 bit ?01:32
MrWizeGuy1983it's easier to set up the 3201:32
MrWizeGuy1983but 64 is faster and more future compatible01:33
fionI just use it not for a long time01:33
LimCoreMrWizeGuy1983: I dont think 64 is really faster01:33
fionso am I01:33
MrWizeGuy1983LimCore, why do you believe that?01:33
shingen64bit can be faster depending if the full memory bus size is used when doing computations01:33
fionI used to 32 bit01:33
shingenif it's not, then it's not faster at all :)01:33
LimCore64 bit can be a bit more secure I guess,  but most important - it simply will allow to use more then 4, 8 GB ram+swap easly01:33
md22are the xfi sound blaster cards and the radeon hd3850 cards compatible with linux ?01:34
shingenmore secure? uh, no01:34
MrWizeGuy1983transmitting 64 bits of data at a time or 32 seems rather plain, of course the bus speed matters, but it's faster overall01:34
MrWizeGuy1983the data is transmitted at the same intervals01:34
MrWizeGuy1983the chip itself is twice as fast, but the bandwidth of the fsb is a limiting factor01:34
LimCoreshingen: in theory, 64 bits could offer more stack and other randomizations, but I dont think ubuntu uses that01:35
LimCorewell in 64 bit mode you can access more registers01:35
MrWizeGuy1983my experience with my core 2 duo on 64 bit linux is that it's so fast it's ridiculous, and also used 32 and 64 bit vista on the same computer01:35
MrWizeGuy198364 bit vista runs almost as fast as 32 bit xp, which doesn't run almost as fast as any linux, but still01:36

DarwinS-Sup-eus-jribI didn't set that up, how do I fix that?01:52
chmacjabagawee: You can probably do something very clever with command line substitution01:52
roukoun_Zeus_: can you think of anything i can do?01:53
ykphuahjabagawee: you have anyway of identifying those files that you want to rename? a script is easy, but unless you want to rename every file to end with txt, you need some sort of filters.01:53
jabagaweeykphuah, umm, i basically want every file, minus the directories to have .txt appended to it01:53
chmacjabagawee: I'd suggest find is probably the simplest option01:54
ykphuahjabagawee: go into the directory, and run this "find ./ -type f -exec mv \{} \{}.txt \;"01:55
chmacykphuah beat me to it :)01:55
ykphuahjabagawee: that will rename every file to end with a txt.01:55
jabagaweeoh shoot, i forgot to delete the files ending with ~ first..01:55
jabagaweehow do i remove all files ending in ~.txt?01:56
ykphuahjabagawee: that's simple -> "find ./ -name "*~.txt" -exec rm \{} \;"01:56
jabagaweewhat does "\;" mean?01:57
jribDarwinS-Sup-eus-: meh, this return anything:  aptitude search '~dproxy~i'01:57
jabagaweei'm assuming that \{} stands for the files that match the search01:57
ykphuahjabagawee: everything behinds the -exec line, you need to escape it if it looks like some special variable in shell.01:57
jribjabagawee, ykphuah: find has -delete fwiw01:57
ykphuahjabagawee: so its actually just {} ;01:57
ykphuahjabagawee: so the semicolon is just to end the -exec command.01:58
jabagaweeah, escape characters. why is the ";" needed if its just a one line command?01:58
jabagaweeoh.. i see. what would happen if i left it out?01:58
ykphuahjrib: ah, that's something new I learn, thanks!01:58

Dr_willis_roukoun,  you may want to explain what kind of 'drivers' they are, did you find source? or kernel patches? or packages or what?02:03

Dr_willis_marbisca,  its trivial to have kde and gnome both on the same box. and compare02:03
marbiscai ask to u the very important difference02:04
Dr_willis_marbisca,  one uses kde, other uses gnome.02:04

Dr_willis_because anything we tell you about the 2, wont make any sence because you will just keep asking what we mean. :)  try the ubuntu live cd.. thatg dnome.. kubuntu is kde..02:07
roukounDr_willis_: in the reame.txt it tells how to install it but the command ('make inst') doesnt work02:07
Dr_willis_roukoun,  install the 'build-essential' package.02:07
roukounDr_willis_: it is already installed02:08
Dr_willis_roukoun,  then the 'make' command should be there.. as for 'make inst' no idea. thats just telling the make program to use the makefile and look for the inst. part.. you sure it dident say 'make install'02:08
morth_can anyone suggest a video or a tutorial on how to setup a FTP server02:09
bzaksoooh, I got it, I accidentally added in a new line between the timing and the command02:09

Dr_willis_morth_,  it would be 'best' to learn to use ssh and scp. and let ftp die out. :)02:09
roukounDr_willis: the command make is here!!! but the inst doent work02:10
Dr_willis_roukoun,  thats the fault of the docs, or the makefiles/source then.02:10

morth_Second is ssh and scp the "same as ftp"?02:10
roukounDr_willis: so what can i do?02:11
morth_and will other users be able to access the ssh and scp on  the website like ftp?02:11
Dr_willis_morth_,  'ssh is secure' - sftp is similer in ussage to ftp.02:11
DCPomhon``, the windows key is the "super" key02:11
tommyhow i install flash player for firfox?02:11
Dr_willis_roukoun,  i would reread the install docs, and check the programs homepage/forums/guides..  make inst   - would be weird.. 'make' by itself should compile the stuff.. or 'make install' or 'make all'02:11

bobertdosAlNahar: Usually, this is due to libflashsupport. It's just a very unstable library.03:07
gluonmanbadfish, I'm using DVDFab HD Decryptor to rip my No Country For Old Men to my external, which has 21 GBs available. The DVD itself is just under 7 GBs but it's telling me that there's not enough disk space for me to write to. Do you know what gives?03:07
AlNaharwell, when i had pulseaudio installed earlier, after i installed libflashsupport it fixed it03:07
AlNaharbut now after removing pulseaudio03:07
AlNaharit doesn't fix it03:07
badfishgluonman: try ripping to your hdd and copying it to the external03:08
bobertdosAlNahar: that's because libflashsupport is designed to add support for Pulse.03:08
gluonmanbadfish, my HDD has less than 5 GBs of available space.03:08
lbo_kenbye all got to go03:09
AlNaharbobertdos: ah ok, but im still having problems even without pulse of flash locking after i hit play03:09
kwyjiboairtonix, Jordan_U, Ademan. problem fixed. thanks03:09
airtonixgluonman, have you looked through the config files for your dvd ripping software to make sure its not actually ripping to your hdd and not your external?03:09
badfishgluonman: your system is too old03:09
DCPom!away lbo_ken03:09
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about away lbo_ken03:09
enzotibgluonman, the external is FAT32?03:09
badfishgluonman: probably a memory problem somewhere03:09
DCPom!away > lbo_ken03:09
ubottulbo_ken, please see my private message03:09
gluonmanbadfish, my system isn't too old.03:09
gluonmanenzotib, it's NTFS.03:09
badfishgluonman: it is if you've only got 5 gb left03:09
airtonixbadfish, your logic in flawed sorry03:10
gluonmanbadfish, that says nothing about age. More like usage.03:10
bobertdosAlNahar: The one thing we like to check before we do anything is that you only have one version of flash and/or gnash installed. So, what all is listed under about:plugins?03:10
lbo_keni didnt send any  away message   as far as i know   i was leaving so i sayed bye to every one that all03:10
fiaraHi. does anyone know where to find a sound card driver for a IBM ThinkPad X31?03:10
badfishgluonman: mine's seen plenty of usage, i've never been down to less than 120 gb03:10
gluonmanairtonix, I'm not sure, but I suspect that even when I've selected the folder on my external HDD, it's probably still ripping to my HDD, or at least thinking it is.03:10
badfishand that's when i only had one hdd editing audio for 2 different bands03:11
cygokuIs anyone here using the DUST theme from the Ubuntu Artwork Communtiy ?!?!?!?!03:11
AlNaharbobertdos: this all started when i switched to alsa from oss4(which i also switched to pulse audio at the same time)03:11
gluonmanbadfish, doesn't matter. Just because I have less than 5 Gigs left doesn't mean my system is old.03:11
airtonixgluonman, which program are you using?03:11
badfishgluonman: it means your system won't play a dvd03:11
airtonixbadfish, more flawed logic there03:11
gluonmanbadfish, no, it means my system won't hold the space a DVD will take up.03:11
gluonmanairtonix, I'm using DVDFab HD Decryptor, which badfish suggested to me earlier.03:12
airtonixgluonman, i can only suggest you try some other programs.03:12
iforiguahi some one know how to reconfigure a remote control on a hp pavilon dv6xxx03:13
airtonixgluonman, is there a special reason why your using that one apart from the recommendation from badfish?03:13

badfishit works for me03:13
badfishwith 1gb of ram03:13
badfishand a 2 year old cpu03:13
gluonmanairtonix, true. I'll look around. But I did have a problem with movie player. But I'm not sure if it is specifically movie player. I was playing all DVDs fine before. And ripping most fine just by opening the DVD in folder view and copy/pasting to my desired folder. But ther are a few with stubborn CSS blocks. I used to be able to play them but not rip them, but now, after installing a bunch of DVD related things from synaptec, I can't even play03:13
gluonman those ones.03:13
AlNaharbobertdos: any ideas?03:14
badfishgot a specific name for a dvd?03:14
bobertdosAlNahar: I see, well since you already are using flash 10, (32-bit system, right?) I would suggest switching exclusively to either Pulse or ALSA. Check that everything is appropriately matched in System->Preferences->Sound.03:14
badfisha title even?03:14
gluonmanairtonix, no other reason except that I'm just hoping something will work. So if someone gives me a suggestion, badfish or not, I'll try it.03:14
gluonmanbadfish, does the specific name of the DVD matter?03:14
AlNaharwell, im trying to switch to exclusively alsa03:14
AlNahari dont know what im doing wrong03:14
airtonixgluonman, for a start have a look here : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DVD::Rip & https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/RippingDVDs03:14
badfishbecause if it's a specific dvd the protection will be the same from disc to disc03:14
badfishso if it works for me, my system is doing something yours isn't03:15
gluonmanbadfish, well it's No Country For Old Men by the Coen brothers.03:15
=== AndyWxy is now known as AndyWxy_busy
badfishi want that movie anyway03:15
AlNaharbobertdos: you mean like gnome-sound-properties?03:15
gluonmanbadfish, again, it has nothing to do with the system, perhaps some codec issues, possibly hardware differences as well.03:15
bobertdosAlNahar: So, everything is set to ALSA already?03:15
badfishno error message?03:15
AlNahari am wondering if the problem is some oss thing with firefox?03:15
Awsoonnhow can I grep a file and print out all the e-mail addresses that it finds? text file btw03:15
AlNaharim going to try removing alsa oss support and see what happens03:15
badfishyou're not going dual boot by any chance?03:15
gluonmanbadfish, or No Country For Old Men is just really well encrypted. I've only had two DVDs that are this stubborn. The rest are a piece of cake.03:16
gluonmanbadfish, I'm not dual booting, but that doesn't really matter.03:16

zcat[1]I'm rather amused by DVD's marked "CC" -- they generally don't mean Creative Commons...03:16
gluonmanbadfish, if it works in Windows but not in Linux, I'll just have to figure out how to make it work in LInux.03:17
badfishgood luck03:17
badfishi've spent 4 years ripping dvds03:17
bobertdosAlNahar: Yeah, something probably broke in your config when you started uninstalling packages. I generally change as little with the sound packages as possible. I've had much better experience leaving them alone and just switching between them.03:17
badfishsome are just encrypted by god03:17
gluonmanbadfish, that's nice. I've also been ripping them for quite some time. I just ran into a problem with this one.03:17

neetoI have an eSATA harddrive that is automatically mounted when I turn my computer on. However, recently for some reason, it's been disconnecting itself after long periods of being connected... say, 12 hours after it's initially connected, it will stop responding. I can try to remount it, but when I do, it says that I must specify the filesystem type (it doesn't do this when it's working correctly, and specifying the fs type correctly doesn'03:21

=== qbmaniac is now known as qb_sleep
mynameistuxyou know how people say certain old computers will only recognise a HDD up to a certain size, why is that, or is it all FUD?03:22
mynameistuxI have a computer from 2002, running ubuntu server, and I want to know if I can put a 1TB hdd into it03:23
neetomynameistux: Windows has limitations for sure, but I don't know of any other limitations simply based on hardware.03:23
bobertdosmynameistux: It depends on the filesystem used. Older computer will generally have hard drives formatted with older, limited file systems.03:23
mynameistuxso, its purely a windows related thing, I thought it might have somthing to do with the BIOS03:23
mynameistuxit will prolly be fat3203:24
LonelyRacerhow to connect ubuntu to a linksys print server?03:24
neetomynameistux: I would be surprised if it had limitations, I am pretty sure, IDE is IDE, and SATA is SATA, regardless of size, therefore if a motherboard supports the standard, it should be able to support any size of HDD using that standard.03:24
mynameistuxk, thx03:24
neeto mynameistux: wait, don't format it in FAT32 though03:24
mynameistuxooookay, why03:25
danbh_intrepidmynameistux: the windows nt 5.x installer will refuse to install partitions larger than 20g as fat32, even though fat32 can support larger drives.  Maybe that fact has contributed to the rumors you hear03:25
zcat[1]really old bioses used to have issues with >1G drives IIRC.. but that was over ten years ago...03:25
sb56637hello all, anyone got any sources for debs for the final release of OpenOffice 3.0?03:25
neetomynameistux: FAT32 does have limitations, I believe, I don't know what they are right off hand, but I am pretty sure there is some sort of size constraint on that FS03:25
zcat[1]Fat32 can't handle files >2G ?03:26
Azhi_DahakaHmm... the laptop just froze when playing a simple Quicktime trailer03:26
danbh_intrepidmynameistux: so that includes windows 2000/xp/vista03:26
mynameistuxI remeber reading something about that, wikipedia has a table of various filesystems maximum file size, and maximium FS size03:26
iforigua hi some one know how to reconfigure a remote control on a hp pavilon dv6xxx03:26
neetomynameistux: but if you are running an ubuntu server which is probably using an ext3 filesystem, why would you want to use FAT32 instead of ext3?03:26
zcat[1]HAMMERFS ftw!!03:26
zcat[1]hammerfs doesn't really manage well on drives smaller than a TB03:27
enzotibFAT32 handle files until 4GB - 1byte03:27
mynameistuxwell, I might want to acces somthing dicercly with a windows pc, the chances are slim, but I may want to use windows for gaming one day03:27
zcat[1]Ahh.. 4G, 2G, whatever .. rather limiting when you want to play with DVD isos03:27
mynameistuxso, I want to use somthing accesible to windows and lnx03:27
neetomynameistux: You might just want to go with NTFS, FAT32 support is slow even on windows03:27
zcat[1]Linux handles NTFS pretty well these days.. ntfs-3g03:28
mynameistuxaaah screw it, ext3, if I need to use windows, I will DL the ext3 thing for windows03:28
mynameistuxI support open standereds, w00t, go me etc03:28
enzotibmynameistux, and windows can access ext2/3 with particular fs driver03:28

mynameistuxyeah, thats what I will get if I need to03:28
xxploit__mynameistux, alot of the big title games will work on wine03:29
bobertdossb56637: The final release isn't available yet. I just checked last night and they're up to RC4. There is a deb available for that though.03:29

case^for ati?03:29
neil_dif a card has support for Red Hat, can I assume the driver can be used by ubuntu ?03:29
mynameistuxas I said, the chances of my using windows for gaming is slim, I will prolly virtualise, but I want to keep my options open03:30
neetoxxploit__: wine is nice, but running windows games in a native windows environment is so much less hassle, even though you do have to do have your fun within the constraints of the proprietary operating system03:30
mynameistuxand, if I have a LAN party, someone using windows, might want to acces my server03:30
mynameistuxneeto is right, but I don't want to pay for a windows licence03:30
neetomynameistux: you should just try NTFS then03:30
mynameistuxthey can go and get the ext3 thing, its not my problem03:31
zcat[1]samba simply sees a 'filesystem' -- it doesn't give a fsck if the files are stored on ntfs or ext3 or fat32 ..03:31
bobertdosneil_d: That's probably not a perfectly safe assumption.03:31
neetomynameistux: I don't (publicly) condone piracy, but who says you have to pay for anything these days? lol03:31
mynameistuxyeah, I never pay for stuff, but when I am in a forum or on irc, I pretend I pay for stuff03:31
neil_dbobertdos: oh! rats, I was hoping it word work.03:31
danbh_intrepidmynameistux: you can serve files simply with apache...03:31
zcat[1]so if you want to share your files over the LAN it doesn't matter in the slightest what filesystem you use03:31
neetomynameistux: good man. demonoid/usenet FTS03:31
bobertdosneil_d: Although , the chances for that being true are relatively good for lots of cards.03:32
mynameistuxwhen I say, heading over to amazon, I mean heading over to tpb03:32
tritiummynameistux: do NOT discuss piracy here.03:32
mynameistuxright, amazon for all my softwares03:32
mynameistuxand apche seems to be the way to go, possible SAMBA03:32
Azhi_DahakaHmm... the laptop just froze when playing a simple Quicktime trailer03:33
neetolol, well man, NTFS works beautifully on linux, and it obviously works well in a native windows environment too03:33
AlNaharbobertdos: you there?03:33
AlNaharas i thought, flash player is trying to use oss03:33
neil_dbobertdos: good to here.  been looking for a multi-port sata card, the ones I have found that do say they support linux, all seem to support only red-hat.03:33
AlNaharoh wait, nevermind03:33
mynameistuxAzhi_Dahaka: are you using vlc?03:33
neetomynameistux: if you are going the route of APACHE then the filesystem won't matter because it will all be done over HTTP03:33
AlNaharwhen i disable oss, flash player works fine03:33
Azhi_Dahakamplayer-plugin for firefox03:33
meoblast001please help03:33
meoblast001how do you remove a file with a ~ at the end of it03:33
neetomynameistux: and samba is a good choice too, since it facilitates the sharing of files between linux and windows computers03:34
AlNaharbobertdos: how do i allow alsa-oss to work but not let flash player use it?03:34
AlNaharthat is apparently what the problem is03:34
bobertdosAlNahar: Yeah, I was going to say..........Flash 10 isn't even supposed to be capable of supporting OSS.03:34
neil_dmeoblast001: quote the name03:34
zcat[1]neeto: actually I've seen a few causes where ntfs got 'slightly' corrupted (guy dropped his laptop, etc) and Windows simply could not read it, not even as a slave drive on another machine. Linux handles it just fine apart from a few files that really were damaged.03:34
meoblast001neil_d: i did03:34
AlNaharbobertdos: it seems when i remove all the oss modules from being loaded and flash works fine03:34
mynameistuxwith SAMBA, can I share files that are still on the harddive to other computers on the network, or upload them to the server?03:34
chmacMost stuff in hardy-backports should be safe to install right?03:34
zcat[1]neeto: so I would argue that Linux handles ntfs 'better' than windows does03:34
neil_dmeoblast001: what was the result ?03:35
neetomynameistux: well since your computer would BE the server, there would be no uploading process, things would just be available from the network.03:35
neetozcat[1]: not surprising, linux does quite a few thousand things better than windows does03:35
bobertdosAlNahar: I don't think there's a good way to do that.......unless you could somehow create a custom alsconf, but that's not something I have a lot of experience with.03:35
mynameistuxno, I have an ancient compy running ubuntu server, to do my file serving03:35
meoblast001neil_d: nvm.. my desktop isnt updating lol03:36
Chris_FosterHi, I was recently suggested shred to clear data, but in the man page it says it doesn't support EXT3, is their a program that does?03:36
AlNaharbobertdos: i mean, it seems if there are oss modules loaded, flash player has problems03:36
bobertdosAlNahar: right03:36
Azhi_DahakaSo... no idea?03:36
neetomynameistux: well either way, putting things on the server would make them availiable to the network if you have the permissions set up that way.03:36
LinuxMan92I have a couple simple questions.03:36
neil_dmeoblast001: so it is gone ?03:36
LinuxMan92Is there any way to improve the speed of Ubuntu on a computer with 256ram?03:36
chmaczcat[1]: Are you the same zcat of #centos fame? Have you defected? Or were you poly all along? :)03:36
zcat[1]neeto: yes, but it's always amused my that linux handles slightly damaged ntfs better than windows does, openoffice can read slightly damaged DOCs that MSOffice chokes on, etc..03:36
neetoLinuxMan92: Yes, get more ram.03:36
zcat[1]chmac: no, different zcat03:37
LinuxMan92i was hoping for a different solution03:37
Chris_FosterLinuxMan92: there are many ways, try searching google for a list03:37
mynameistuxmy preference would be being able to open my nerwork places in windows, and the equivilant in ubuntu, and see everything on the server, and things being shared from HDD's on neetwork connected computers03:37
mynameistuxis that possible03:37
danbh_intrepidLinuxMan92: use xubuntu, and yes, get more ram.  I'll probably only cost ya $2003:37

LinuxMan92well the computer isnt mine therefore i dont really want to invest money into it03:38
mynameistuxLinuxMan92: more RAM is realy really cheap03:38
zcat[1]chmac: there are a number of zcat's around.. I'm not the only one03:38
mynameistuxLinuxMan92: you can double it for like 20 bucks, and then keep the RAM when you give it back to its owner03:38
neetomynameistux: it's not bad, but it does take work, just like most things on linux...03:39
Chris_FosterLinuxMan92: That is a really common question, it saves time for all of us if you try google first, then your not re-inventing the wheel again03:39
mynameistuxso, is it configured by editing the .samba file somewhere03:39
Mrfoi have a semi dead remote login thats running a terminal process that i need to continue. is there a way to send it to run in the background if i can't 'ctrl-z' onto it03:39
chmacSo, backports are relatively safe to install right? I'm not about to bork my seyste? :)03:40
neetomynameistux: it's configured through a config file somewhere. I don't mean to be blunt, but you should stop asking about it and go play with it. It's free and you have nothing to lose.03:40
LinuxMan92Chris_Foster: I understand that however I was wondering if in the settings there was a way to disable certain effects that would speed it up03:40
zcat[1]bah, easiest way to 'configure' samba is right-click on folders and share them just like in 'doze .. why make things harder than they need be?!!03:40
mynameistuxyou have a point03:40
mynameistux*ssh's into server, and breaks somthing*03:40

zhou<indian_munnda> zhou: what does 1 means?04:41
_Zeus_genii: that's a possibility, but I don't think you need 4 tabs04:41

zhou1 means strat it04:41
wisemanwell check this out04:41

zhouvideo films04:42
vilhelm_Zeus_: but shouldn't it be removed already when i removed it from adept ?04:42
wisemanso I do sudo mount -a and I get this error:04:42
_Zeus_vilhelm: you should have used remove --purge04:43
indian_munndazhou: yes04:43
jsqbtw, the only reason i'm doing this, is because after installing kubuntu-desktop i was freezing, and mostly thte mouse would just stop responding. somehow it had switched to ALPS driver instead of synaptics... or something. so hopefully removing all the kde stuff will fix it..04:43
wiseman$logfile indicates unclean shutdown, failed to mount /dev/sda2: operation not supported04:43
_Zeus_wiseman: you need to cleanly shutdown windows04:44
jsqi thought after i removed kubuntu-desktop then did apt-get autoremove all the automatically installed packages would be gone.04:44
hellhound_legend2440, thank you but I get an error that says "Bad key or directory name: "and": Must begin with a slash '/'"04:44

dudehi guys, I have an nvidia 9600 card and I have it running on the restricted drivers so I can use compiz.  problem is every other time I restart the machine the drivers become corrupted or something because I get what looks like static or noise running all over the screen and I can only get as far as the GUI login screen.  I then have to restart in repair mode to repair the xservice (x server?) and then re-enable nvidia's xserver s06:49

Reformer81...ugh.  Nevermind.  Simply restarting my computer apparently fixed this "issue."  Amazing how Linux will work one second but not the next.. and then, two minutes later, all is well again.07:28
Paddy_EIRE_kevin_: what is your hardware.. if you are unsure do "lspci" and "lsusb" in a terminal and pastebin the output07:29
rukcus_kevin_:  if you have a windows driver for the device, you can use ndiswrapper to cloak the windows .sys to work on linux07:29
carandraugDoc|Serverising: you then need to create the filesystems on those partitions. You'll need to umount them and then use a command that I'll give you in one minute. You want ext3 partitions?07:29

danbh_intrepidReformer81: its called transcoding.  If you look it up in wikipedia, there is more info07:37
Reformer81danbh_intrepid: What would you suggest I convert my current collection (and actualy CD's) to?07:37
FlannelReformer81: Yes, transcoding will result in a loss of quality (not from copy of copy, since this is digital, but because mp3 throws out some info, and ogg throws out some info, and the union of those two infos is your resulting quality)07:37
FlannelReformer81: For archiving, rip to FLAC.  Then transcode to your lossy format of the week for use on smaller devices.07:38
_kevin_Paddy_EIRE, okay thanks, I'll give that a go07:38
Doc|Serverisingcarandraug: Is this okay? /dev/sdb1 1 38913 312568641 83 Linux ?07:38
carandraugDoc|Serverising: ok. SO once you create your type 83 partition with cfdisk, you'll have a partition that will probably sdb1 (confirm with sudo fdisk -l). The run "sudo mkfs.ext3 -j /dev/sdb1" and switch sdb1 for whatever's correct07:38
Paddy_EIRE_kevin_: read this before hand http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=82870907:38

Paddy_EIRE_kevin_: keep chatting your way through the process with us and you will be sure to find a method that works everytime for you :)07:39
danbh_intrepidReformer81: if they are already mp3, just leave them that way07:39
FlannelReformer81: Rip to FLAC, thats lossless, so you can then encode to format X today for your player, and format Y tomorrow (from the original FLAC) for tomorrows [xyz] player that plays a different format.07:39
Paddy_EIREhey Flannel07:39
FlannelHowdy Paddy_EIRE07:39
carandraugDoc|Serverising: looks correct to me. Make the filesystem now. cfdosk, only makes the partitions (there's GUI's to make this kind of stuff such as gparted)07:39
Reformer81Flannel: Thank you!  That exactly what I was trying to decide. :)07:39
* delcoyote hi07:40

Doc|Serverisingcarandraug: I don't have the luxury of a GUI. :P07:40
Paddy_EIREReformer81: yes it is07:40
FlannelReformer81: While FLAC is a bit bigger (obviously) hard drive space is generally so cheap that it's not an issue.  Free Lossless Audio Codec.  Yep.07:40
rukcusReformer81: if you're talking about storage, i recommend a RAID array if you plan on searching thorugh the collection often07:40
Reformer81rukcus: I don't really SEARCH so much as just find the desired artist within Amarok :)07:41

IntuitiveNippletrylobytero: yes, press F6 I think it is, to edit the kernel command line, then delete "quiet splash" and press Enter08:50
dinocatzanybody can help?08:50
w3bs3llhelp what?08:50
maalsathere are a lot of media players for ubuntu08:50
maalsadepends on your needs and wants08:50
maalsasomething simple? something complex?08:51
maalsaall media? just music? just movies?08:51
dinocatzyeah.. i know... but the display quality not so good08:51
maalsadinocats: so something for video?08:51
dinocatznope, for *.avi files.. downloaded from internet08:51
maalsadinocatz: try VLC08:51
IntuitiveNippledisplay quality is controlled by the original file, the codecs, and any scaling08:51
gluonmanI have an embedded terminal on my desktop. It's gnome-terminal with it's transparency and border settings controlled by compiz settings. I have it set to appear in the centre of my screen, but whenever I boot my computer, it appears at the upper left blocking any /media or /dev icons that are present. Of course, if I close the terminal and re-open it, it reappears in the correct location. How do I re-order the sessions so that terminal o08:52
gluonmanpens after compiz settings have been fully recognized so that I don't have to keep closing the terminal and re-opening it?08:52
dinocatzalready installed VLC... other than that?08:52
trylobyteroIntuitiveNipple: thanks, now I can see the problem is many ACPI exceptions "(processor_core-0816): AE_NOT_FOUND, Processor Device is not present [20070126]"08:53
trylobyteroI should use noacpi option, isn't it?08:53
IntuitiveNippletrylobytero: That is a pretty serious bug! what CPU is it?08:53
maalsadinocatz: I agree with IntuitiveNipple, the quality has a lot to do with the video file itself, not necessarily the program playing it08:53
balle_hey, i have lost the shutdown button from the system-->quit menu and i cant get it back, does any of you know how?08:53
dinocatzhmm... ok...08:53
trylobyteroIntuitiveNipple: intel t237008:54
DIFH-icerootballe_: gnome? right click in panel and add the shutdown button again08:54
dinocatzwhen i played with windows, the display so good...08:54
DIFH-icerootballe_: add panel should be the english name08:54
dinocatzhmm... I'm wondering probably i miss some setting with the player itself08:54
maalsaDIFH: it sounds like he didn't lose it from the panel, but from the dialogue that pops up after you click Quit from the apps menu08:55
balle_DIFH-iceroot: i've tried that, and that is in my panel already, but it is the final button you press before the computer goes to shutdown that's gone08:55
IntuitiveNippletrylobytero: What motherboard/BIOS - that looks like an ACPI DSDT entry is incorrect08:55
DIFH-icerootballe_ and maalsa sorry didnt geht that info08:55
dinocatzPentium D08:56
balle_maalsa: exactly and DIFH-iceroot, np man08:56
dinocatzDell PC..08:56
crazy_busif I send someone a password protected archive on ubuntu will they be able to open it in file roller?08:57
maalsaballe_: try this: sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm08:57
dinocatzany body can suggest me what application for video editing08:58
balle_maalsa: doing08:58
centr0ubuntu isnt seeing my internal NTFS hard drive. its not listed in fstab and even gparted doesnt see it.  any ideas?08:58
skarhi, is there any way i can get deb packages for cpan modules? like MooseX::Types08:59
balle_maalsa: done, but it appears i have to reboot correct?08:59
IntuitiveNipplecentr0: Examine the /var/log/dmesg and/or /var/log/kern.log for clues about how the system detects the controller, and the devices attached to it.08:59
maalsabaale_: give it a go, come on back, let me know how it worked out08:59
dinocatzi tried my self to avoid windowz from now on... but i'm facing difficulties when i want to do video editing08:59

jim_phow can i install w32codecs now that the package is not in medibuntu?09:01
balle_usal: well yea, ctrl+shift+delete is fast..09:01
c4r1ohi, i'm using a notebook right now, do you know how to increase the volume of speakers? with ubuntu it sounds way less than with windows....09:02
usa1i thought he said to reboot09:02
IntuitiveNippledinocatz: http://cinelerra.org  and http://lives.sourceforge.net/09:02
dinocatzthanks for the link...09:02
c4r1oanyone 4 my volume problem? ;-)09:03
trylobyteroIntuitiveNipple: can't see which motherboard it has, the info I have is "cpu type: intel pentium dual cpu t2370 @ 1.73; processor intel centrino + core"09:03
dinocatzreally appreciate it09:03
balle_usa1: i had to quit all the stuff that uses xconf or something like that, and a shift+ctrl+delete should do that, not?09:03
usa1yes, should09:03
IntuitiveNippletrylobytero: What system make/model then? That report suggest something rather wrong somewhere!09:03
usa1you gonna try a reboot of ya OS now?09:04
balle_c4r1o: try to open alsa mixer: sudo alsamixer and try fiddling with some of the settings in there..09:04
gluonmanCan anyone tell me how I can re-prioritize my sessions so that gnome-terminal opens after my compiz settings have been fully recognized so that my embedded terminal opens in the right spot without me having to close it and re-open it?09:04
balle_usa1: think is should?09:04
trylobyteroIntuitiveNipple: Beep Iridium A15 T237009:04
usa1msconfig would stop alot from booting when u do try09:04
c4r1oballe_ thx but already did and everything is max09:04
balle_usa1: sry?09:05
c4r1obut even if everything is 100% it sounds poorly.... like when the volume is half way it's silence already09:05
usa1oh heck, ya all lost me now, i been up almost all night09:05
usa1i cant sleep09:06
trylobyteroIntuitiveNipple: the only options I can choose at the bios setup utility is "execute disable bit", that is enabled, and lcd panel power saving, enabled too, besides of the boot device priority09:06
usa1good reason though, i am at work right now09:06
balle_c4r1o: what about the PCM setting? is that up?, double click on the sound icon09:06
gluonmanRe-prioritizing sessions anyone?09:07
IntuitiveNippletrylobytero: OK. I see it now. Like you said, I think you should try adding the "acpi=off" option on the kernel command line at boot-time, and if you can, post a bug report as per the wiki: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingACPI09:07
maalsaballe_: are you running GNOME or KDE?09:07
geniigluonman: renice09:07
c4r1oyeh it's up right now....i've also maxed Front and master09:07
gluonmangenii, what is that?09:07
trylobyteroIntuitiveNipple: I bought this notebook with no license, it had installed freeDOS, but it's suspicious that it had a "windows vista" logo close to the keyboard09:07
balle_maalsa: sry bout that gnome09:08
IntuitiveNipplegenii: No, he wants to cause one app to load after a delay when the gnome session starts09:08
geniigluonman: It assigns less or more resources to a process or app depending on what values you feed it09:08
usa1trylobytero format and go from there.09:08
IntuitiveNippletrylobytero: It seems a bit 'strange', I agree.09:08
geniiIntuitiveNipple: Ah, OK09:08
rukcuscan i format a harddrive to NTFS in linux?09:08
centr0IntuitiveNipple, is there anything i should be looking out for in dmesg?  when i grep sda on output i get '[   25.793506]  sda: sda1 sda2 < sda5 >'09:08
c4r1ook now it's a little different09:09
gluonmangenii, alright, but I'm not keen on syntax. I'm trying to make a program in my sessions wait before it opens. Because it tends to open before compiz settings are fully kicked in, but the desired state of the program relies on those compiz settings. So how can I use renice to make it wait?09:09
c4r1othe MAX volume is ok......but it just takes 3 or 4 times that i press the (down)volume botton and it silences09:09
rukcusor rather more specifically: what is a file system that both Linux and Windows r/w to?09:09
IntuitiveNipplecentr0: If the partition with the NTFS file-system is on sda, then and partitioner *should* see it. Try using "sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda"09:09
drue_Hey,how do i install ThunderBird Via Terminal?09:09
geniigluonman: No, you use renice on already-running things09:10
centr0IntuitiveNipple, its a completely different physical drive so could it be /dev/sdb?09:10
IntuitiveNipplegluonman: Have you got it entered in the 'Sessions' tab in Preferences?09:10
gluonmangenii, then that's not what I'm after.09:10
c4r1oso the whole volume bar is instead the second half of it couse when the cursor is half way volume is 009:10
IntuitiveNipplecentr0: Do "sudo fdisk -l" and that will list all drives/partitions that can be found09:10
gluonmanIntuitiveNipple, it is in Sessions. It and compiz are just being initialized in an order I wish to reverse.09:10
IntuitiveNipplegluonman: Try adding a delay to the execution command09:11
gluonmanIntuitiveNipple, can you tell me how to do that?09:11
centr0IntuitiveNipple, just those 3.  sda1, sda2, sda5 = swap09:11
usa1fdisk is my favorite command!!09:11
IntuitiveNipplegluonman: "sleep 20s && gnome-terminal"09:11
trylobyteroso, should I go and ask at the store where I bought it?09:11
gluonmanIntuitiveNipple, I'll try that. Thank you.09:11
IntuitiveNipplegluonman: Try it from the command-line first to be sure it is what you want09:11
gluonmanIntuitiveNipple, alright.09:12
IntuitiveNipplecentr0: Then it looks like the drive isn't connected correctly, or is configured incorrectly09:12

drue_how do i install ThunderBird Via Terminal?09:13
IntuitiveNipplegluonman: To control the order you could put both start-up commands in a script, and then call the script when the session starts, too. That way they are guaranteed to follow the order of launch in the script09:13
r2s1where else can I extract info to get the current DNS server for the PC ??09:13
r2s1to use it in script09:13
trylobyteroIntuitiveNipple: now it hangs sooner, at "..TIMER: vector=0x31 apic1=0 pin1=2 apic2=0 pin2=0", with apic=off09:13

usa1oh hell...nm09:14
gluonmanIntuitiveNipple, alright. Thank you.09:14
IntuitiveNippletrylobytero: Some machines won't start without ACPI, unfortunately... Try with "-noacpi"09:14
powertool08what is the strongest encryption for gpg: DSA & Elgamal, DSA, or RSA?09:14
geniir2s1: Just pipe result you have through a sed command to exclude lines with # in them09:14
IntuitiveNippletrylobytero: lol hang on... did you use "apic=off" or "acpi=off" - be VERY careful; it should be ACPI09:15
usa1powertool08  what ya trying to hide.   ??  lol09:15
powertool08usa1: just files I don't want other users into, something that can't be bruteforced easily09:15
packetlossmy eth0 won't come up automatically after restart, so i have to turn it up manually like this; sudo ifup eth0... how could i fix this ?09:16
trylobyteroIntuitiveNipple: sorry, i used acpi, got wrong typing it here09:16
geniir2s1: sed '/#/d'         for instance09:16
IntuitiveNippletrylobytero: OK, worth checking :)09:16
usa1powertool08 and just passwording doesnt keep ya friends out,  wow09:17
IntuitiveNippletrylobytero: Try some of the other kernel command-line options on the wiki page, see if any give a better result09:17
usa1what kinda friends u got anyway>?09:17
powertool08usa1: curious ones09:17
usa1i hear ya09:17
r2s1genii: thanks09:18
IntuitiveNipplepowertool08: Unless you're worried about the NSA trying to crack the encrpytion, I don't think you need to worry which algorithm is used. The main variable is the quality of the passphrase09:18
usa1lol  ya what IntuitiveNipple said!!09:18
powertool08IntuitiveNipple: ok, thanks.09:19
usa1but then again. IntuitiveNipple it could very well be the NSA....lol09:19
trylobyteroIntuitiveNipple: with -noacpi it hangs where it did the first time, acpi exceptions09:19
talntid.. Did someone say NSA?09:19
* IntuitiveNipple has encrypted disks, with no passwords, only accessible with a USB key inserted during boot09:19
talntidWho ratted me out?09:19
powertool08IntuitiveNipple: is there anything strong enough to keep the government at bay? I assumed they could crack anything in a matter of days09:20
IntuitiveNippletrylobytero: I'm afraid it sounds like you've got a 'bad' one09:20
talntidpowertool08, I'll be at your house soon, to inspect your storage media...09:20
IntuitiveNipplepowertool08: sure; multiple layers of different encryptions09:20
c4r1owell if they can access the terminal, if not i don't think09:20
DaCapnpowertool08 Just use the encryption scheme that the NSA uses and you'll know that you're safe.09:20
dada_When i install 8.04 aternate  from disk ,it always tell me to mount CD/ROM ,Why?09:20
powertool08talntid: haha, I don't have much to hide, just curious since I've always heard if the government wants to know, they will09:20
usa1i agree with DaCapn09:20
DaCapnThey surely wouldn't use something that they could break would they?09:20
talntidmeh. the govt has good intel people.09:21
talntidbut not everything is crackable in a matter of days09:21
powertool08DaCapn: who knows...09:21
c4r1odacapn i think the opposite...they should be able to break it in order to recover it....09:21
usa1heya powertool08, if ya got anything the gov. wants. please dont come by the house anymore...  k?09:22
IntuitiveNippleI think you've got far bigger problems than worrying about 'the government' cracking your files, if you're that concerned!09:22
talntidpowertool08, however, all they need to do is put the HDD in a cleanroom, and do the data recovery that way... ;)09:22
IntuitiveNippleEither that or an excessive dose of paranoia :)09:22
powertool08usa1: sure thing, but I doubt they have any interest in me09:22
=== lakitu2 is now known as lakitu
c4r1owho knows powertool......who knows^^09:23
talntidwho names themself that?09:23
administatormy name noom09:23
powertool08IntuitiveNipple: I'm not worried at all, like I said, I just need basic encryption but the NSA was brought up and I was curious09:23
administatori'm thai09:23
DaCapntalntid provided that the encryption implementation is secure (no watermarking or side-channel, etc) then there's not really anything they can do about it.09:23
TheGovernmentWe didn't have any interest in you... till now...09:24
IntuitiveNipplepowertool08: I know; but it's fun to poke at the subject09:24
utnubudnaijim_p, you can add this to your source.list:deb http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/repo/ hardy free non-free,you can have a try09:24
powertool08lol @ TheGovernment09:24
talntidDaCapn, It should be possible to read the data manually.. it'd take a long time to recreate it, but possible09:24
utnubudnaimaybe too slow for you,and you can search "ubuntu hardy w32codecs" for that!09:25
* genii traces to TheGovernment's secret lair09:25
utnubudnaiuse google for that! jim_p09:25
jim_putnubudnai: i did. it says Package w32codecs is not available, but is referred to by another packag09:25
DaCapntalntid You would read nothing but seemingly random data. That doesn't circumvent the encryption.09:25
talntidso, I just found out the great wonders of VLC streaming......09:25
ushillsCan anyone suggest a cheap scanner that works with ubuntu09:26
powertool08ushills: HP09:26
usa1powertool08   do it like we did when i was a bit younger, when they knock on the door, flush it down the can, oh...heck. cant do that i guess09:26
talntidi'm VPN tunneled into my home computer, from work...09:26
utnubudnaijim_p, can you paste the error messages generated?09:26
jim_putnubudnai: the ubuntu guys decided to provide codecs and dvd support sor $$ !!! let me find the link09:26
talntidand streaming the DVD that is in my home computer DVD rom...09:26
BlueEagleushills: any scanner that runs the niash chipset are cheap and compatible.09:26
talntidabout 60 miles away. pretty neat09:26
BlueEagleushills: scanjets seem to be mostly supported.09:26
ushillsdo most hp work with ubuntu, i thought Hp were expensive.  i tried an artec but no luck09:27
utnubudnaijim_p, ^^,there must be some free for you!09:27

powertool08usa1: hmm, perhaps I could rig one of those crazy self-destruct, burn the house down emergency government is after me things like in the movie Conspiracy Theory :P09:27
usa1for sure09:27
usa1that would work great09:27
talntidpowertool08, i'll give you a tip about that09:28
powertool08talntid: oh?09:28
AtaxHi all, in which directory should new programs be placed (im basically looking for c:\programs under linux)?09:28
BlueEagleushills: THe scanjet 3300c (if they still make those) are cheap and they work.09:28
talntid... remember when in school, they tell you to practice your emergency plan?09:28
talntidDON'T! your house will burn down.09:28
powertool08talntid: haha, good tip09:28
talntidand the insurance companies don't really buy the conspiracy story...09:28
BlueEagletalntid: Why, after all the years of school do doctors still call what they do "practice"?09:28
jim_putnubudnai: http://pastebin.com/d6de86a9009:28
talntidBlueEagle, about a year ago, my lung collapsed.09:29
powertool08talntid: well thats the landlord's problem09:29
talntidat that time, i remember them bringing in a bunch of trainees to see how to fix a collapsed lung09:29
powertool08talntid: Should I find a need to burn the house down I either won't get far, or I'll disappear for quite some time09:29
trylobyteroIntuitiveNipple: lol, the first thing I did when I taken the notebook out of the box it was to remove the "windows vista" tag, so the warranty is broken xDDDD09:29
hateballAtax: Are you refering to programs you're compiling from source? If you install from the repositories you need not bother, they'll end up where they should09:29
talntidsupposedly i got very violent, verbally, when they were showing a trainee how to properly hold the drill, to drill into my chest and relieve the pressure.09:30
IntuitiveNippletrylobytero: Hmmm, stick it back! :)09:30
ushillsthanks i will look for prices09:30
jim_putnubudnai: any ideas?09:30
talntidwhich removed a large amount of trust i had in any doctors, actively practicing.09:30
Ataxhateball: In this case I wonder where to put "Sonbird" as well as UrbanTerror, I cant launch them after I placed them in /usr/bin/*09:31
trylobyteroIntuitiveNipple: i sticked it on my brothers t-shirt, joking, and he sticket it on the mirror of the elevator, now it's dissappeared09:31
hateballAtax: Have you downloaded .deb files? Or a tar.gz with source? or precompiled binaries?09:31
usa1talntid and...aint it the same with attorneys. they call what they do a "pratice"?09:32
IntuitiveNippletrylobytero: :p09:32
jdevelso far I'm liking linux more and more09:32
Ataxhateball: they where both tar's or perhaps zip-files09:32
jdevelthought it was going to be more of a pain09:32
bSONdo i need a cups server running when i just print to a network printer?09:32
Ataxhateball: I don t complie! :)09:32
Ataxhateball: compile!09:33
IntuitiveNippleAtax: probably, you've got to give the binaries executable permissions (chmod a+x <programm-name>)09:33
ali_is there any one?09:33
hateballAtax: If they were precompiled, you could just as well put them in your ~/ and chmod +x on them09:33
hateballAtax: Unless you need to have other users access it as well09:33
IntuitiveNippleAtax: usually, user-installed programs are put in /usr/local/bin (/usr/local/lib) or /opt/ depending in whether there is a complete package of files or not09:34
AtaxBut is the ~(home-dir) the propery directory to place file? There must be a equivalent to c:\programs09:34
AtaxThanks IntuitiveNipple: thats what i was looking for!09:34
aki_anyone have any idea why I can't enable better visual settings? I've GF 9800GTX and I've dled the drivers from package manager09:34
AtaxThanks guys!09:34
jdevelmaybe your resolution settings?09:35
jdeveland color depth09:35
hateballAtax: If it's precompiled, it'd be easier for you to just put it in your ~/. Saves you headaches with upgrades etc09:36
jdevelmight have to alter a conf file, or update driver09:36
BlueEaglejim_p: regarding that link. I think Canonical is doing the right thing in this case.09:36
hateballAtax: But sure, /usr/bin for binaries, /etc for settings and so forth, is the standard09:36
IntuitiveNippleAtax: you may be interested in the FHS then http://www.pathname.com/fhs/pub/fhs-2.3.html09:36
hateball!FHS | Atax09:36
ubottuAtax: An explanation of how files and directories are organized on Ubuntu, and how they can be manipulated, can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LinuxFilesystemTreeOverview09:36
AtaxI know about FHS a bit, ... I previously looked up the wikipedia-article concerning FHS but it dident reveal what you just posted IntuitiveNipple!09:37
jim_pBlueEagle: i agree. canonical is a company and not some independant linux user out there, so it must play by the rules. but what happens when i want codecs? and i am NOT under the american law09:37
IntuitiveNippleAtax: Often you have to chase links to get to the good stuff :)09:37
jdevelthat's the truth09:38
AtaxBut I ll look at the www.pathname.com, ... perhaps that will help if i have similar questions in the future!09:38

aki_well res is set to 1280 x 1024 and I can't set it to higher.. can't find color depth.. and I dled the drivers today from the add/rmv app thingie09:38

jdevelof course09:39
jdevelsilly question09:39

todd_jim_p, you can download one from the net!09:49
jim_pIntuitiveNipple: the article says about canonical providing codeds and dvd with $$ as exchange. so its logical for the w32 codecs to be removed from medibuntu09:49
Jordan_UKartagis: Nothing, the applet that comes by default should do it09:49
IntuitiveNipplejim_p: No, Canonical is doing that to ensure there is a legal route for people that need it, to have the codecs.09:50
KartagisJordan_U, what if it doesn't?09:50
jim_pIntuitiveNipple: then why were the codecs removed from there?09:50

ikoniaLuYu the partitions is not importa,t the file system is10:51
kushalsejwalGood Day everybody, I was wondering are GCC and CC are the same? I mean I use CC or GCC command does that make any difference?10:51
ikoniakushalsejwal they are environment variables that point tot he c and c++ compilers10:52
LuYumtd0 on / type jffs2 (rw,noatime)10:52
IntuitiveNipplelinuxius: You'd also probably want to add an entry in  "/etc/modprobe.d/aliases" so the driver is loaded whenever the device is connected. something like "alias usb:v1D9Dp1000 usbserial"10:52
larryonekushalsejwal: not the same but usually makes no difference10:52
LuYui know10:52
ikoniakushalsejwal: most just use CC10:52
ikoniaLuYu please pastebin the output of "mount" and the output of "ls -la $mount_point" in a pastebin10:52
linuxiusIntuitiveNipple: when I type in the "sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x1d9d product=0x1000" , how do I know that it worked?10:52
IntuitiveNipplelarryone: what user IDs do the user accounts have?10:52
LuYuhowever, since its a file system within a file system, the question gets weirder10:52

juliandevwgfwinff =unsupported codec for output11:05
LuYubecause a stock ubuntu kernel cannot properly run the OLPC hardware11:06

popeyjuliandevwgf: what do you want to convert and what do you want to convert to?11:06

ikoniaLuYu thats a pretty bad assumption11:06

ikoniaLuYu I'm using a san disk SD card here11:12
IntuitiveNipplelinuxius: You don't mount it, from what I can see, it 'seems' to present itself like a modem so I'm guessing it'll respond to commands, like modems do to the AT command set11:12

ikoniacontarc could you explain the solution11:48
ikoniacontarc: I didn't quite pickup full on IntuitiveNipple's comment11:48
contarcDoes not make much sense as to why, but an apt-get clean fixed it.11:49

ikoniaIntuitiveNipple most interesting, doing teh same11:49
m0u5eIntuitiveNipple: thx, but I think I won't be able to remove any of the deps... theres too many dependancies ... do you know if there is a way to assign aptitude to resolve the packages as smoothly as possible, potentially uninstalling only packages that have no deps that are devs?11:50

craigbass1976Is there some art to mounting samba shares these days?  I used to mount -t smbfs //ip.add.ress./sharename /mountpoint   I knew that it changed to cifs in Fedora, but not in Ubuntu initially, then I stopped running into windows boxes and didn't have to worry about it.12:21

billybigrigger_my system is up to date12:36
Moaehi all12:36
billybigrigger_pretty sure i said that already12:36
Jeruvybillybigrigger_: sounds like a problem with your browser, if flash isn't available, most 'flash content' detects this and directs you to installing it.  So look at why your browser is not rendering flash content, perhaps your blocking scripts12:36
Moaei have a problem that i can solve :)12:36

H|V_3ala2to the same path12:38
MechdaveIntuitiveNipple, thanks12:38
Moaethe problem is that without the config.dat in the debconf directory APT doesn't work12:39
H|V_3ala2look for the file on the internet12:39
noob-africaHjV_3ala2: that depends on whether a hard copy back up was made, before the conf file was deleted12:39
H|V_3ala2noob,,,,,can it just be paste back?12:40
H|V_3ala2what it does anyway?12:41

IntuitiveNipplecarrera: ICH9R uses software aka 'fake' RAID. I think it requires the dmraid kernel module to read the metadata (like the Promise Fastrak series)12:54

esayhow can I write things in /usr/share/stardict/dic  carrera?12:56

swapnaplease someone tell me about glibc12:56
ikoniacarrera I don't think thats wise12:56

Dr_willis_esay,  with use of the sudo command to do things as root...12:57
esayhow can ı do root?12:57
Myrtti!root | esay12:57
ubottuesay: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo12:57
swapnaIntuitiveNipple: do you have any idea about how to modify makefile of glibc12:57
IntuitiveNipplecarrera: If there isn't data on them already, ignore the motherboard 'RAID' and use linux md (mdsdm) to do it12:57
ikoniacarrera well your root partition on a raid0 partition is asking for a dead system, plus your probably going to wantt to use fake raid which is a terrible technology12:57
ikoniaswapna if you have to ask that - you shouldn't be doing it12:57
ikoniaswapna: speak to your professor/teacher that your doing the project for12:57
IntuitiveNippleswapna: That's what being a student is all about - learning how to learn, and learning how to research, and learning how to do :)12:58
