kitcheDarkGu1: well libc6 is the core of your system if you remove that you seriously mess your system up so it no longer works00:11
jribsteven_: you shouldn't need sudo.  What exactly happens when you don't use sudo?00:11
DarkGu1der: 'Is there a way to install libmesa without deleting my drivers, or editing my display in anayway? I need it as a dependency00:11

Polygon89hi people, quick question. for some reason, the latest version of vlc, when i play a video, i get two windows, one window with the controls and a seperate window with the actual video that says VLC (X11 output). It did not used to do this, how do i make it all one video again?00:18
carreraDarkGu1, did a "find . -name xorg.cong" to no avail00:18
steven_jrib: No. I'm doing this from a terminal on the computer I want to open a 2nd x server on.00:18
DarkGu1carrera: look in /etc/x1100:18
tyberionI already asked in #cf for that, but is anyone here using compiz fusion 0.7.8?00:18

carreraDarkGu1, I don't even have /etc/x1100:18
FFForeverthe last one even if i disable it i get the same thing Blackhou5e00:18
jlevydgv: yes, here is the relevent part http://www.mibbit.com/pb/b3tQYV00:18
FFForever(the last one is for the latest vlc)00:18
jribsteven_: you need to run it from a tty.  By the way, if you want gdm to pop up instead of whatever is in your ~/.xinitrc, you can use gdmflexiserver00:18
BobCFCPolygon89: the vlc people did it on purpose because of another bug, it should be fixed in next version, you can always downgrade to old one 9.200:19
carreraDarkGu1, "cd x" in /etc shows only xdg/ xml/ and xulrunner-1.9/00:19
steven_jrib: I will look into tty. Thanks.00:19
ubottuTo get to the TTY terminals 1-6, use the keystroke ctrl + alt + F1-F6 respectively (Alt+F7 will get you back to your graphical login).  To change the resolution for your TTY, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ChangeTTYResolution.00:19

jburdcarrera: before you make any changes to /etc/X11/xorg.conf  make a backup of that file.00:31

ActionParsni1DavidCanarias: its also useful when a library is superceeded but an old crappy app hasnt been updated so you symlink the new library so it has the old name01:20
drowner_DCPom: But they are completely fixable.01:20

jribxain: not all the guides on the internet.  start from scratch with the one from the official winehq site01:21
drowner_Perhaps someone else can help DCPom. He seems to have installed a server install, and then installed Xubuntu again - but not by a command line install from the desktop, via a new vanilla CD. I can tell, because he has 2 swaps. He cannot get his grub to point to his Xubuntu by default, he has to manually select it01:21
M|sf|tsi got a internet question i was wondering if someone could help me with. ???01:21
xainjrib: alright ill take a look.01:21

yoyonedDCPom: what are you trying to do?01:22
xainquink_: 8.0401:22
jribxain: link me01:22
drowner_yoyoned: he wants to boot Xubuntu, not server, by default01:22
xainjrib: link you to what?01:22
DCPomyoyoned, boot with xubuntu as default start up disk, but it normally uses server01:22
jribxain: to the page you are reading on appdb.winehq.org01:22
xainjrib: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=373101:23
drowner_yoyoned: i'm stumped because he doesn't even seem to have these entries in his menu.lst01:23
yoyonedDCPom: are there 2 seperate installations01:23
DCPomyoyoned, i believe so, but i think i royally messed up my partitions some how01:23
jribxain: you don't see the "HOWTO" section?01:23
yoyonedDCPom: just 1 disk?01:23
DCPomyoyoned, this is my fdisk: http://paste.ubuntu.com/59055/01:23
xainjrib: where?01:24
DCPomyoyoned, yeah01:24

yoyonedwhat are you booted into now01:24
M|sf|tsim in kuwait right... well kuwaits government does not allow veiwing of certian sites... like porn ect... i am tryiD fearing muslims dont want to goto www.skype.com i was wondering how i could bounce from one IP to another where i would be able to connect to www.skype.com ...  its not illegal to be smarter then then is it ?01:24
DCPomyoyoned, xubuntu01:24
xainoh now i feel stupid sorry jrib im also haveing a cant change resolution problem x.x01:24
yoyonedDCPom: what is the output of df -h01:25
DCPomyoyoned, http://paste.ubuntu.com/59068/01:25
xainjrib: and that is just one of the games the real one im haveing problems with is Half life 1. but ill look at the site.01:25
ActionParsnipM|sf|ts: you could use web proxies01:26
yoyonedDCPom: so sda1 is the xubuntu install01:26
jribxain: well get steam installed from the link there.  I haven't tried hl1, but hl2 works fine for me01:26
wulaxM|sf|ts: maybe: http://www.opendns.com/01:26
drowner_yoyoned: that's what I thought - but his menu.lst doesn't point to anything BUT sda101:26
DCPomyoyoned, yes, i think so01:26
yoyonedDCPom: can you pastebin your menu.lst01:27
DCPomyeah let me get it01:27
jamesishdrowner: Makes sense that that's where he'd boot into then, yeah?01:27
drowner_this is why i'm stumped01:27
drowner_unless grubs mapped his HD all wrong01:27
M|sf|tsim in kuwait, and for some reason kuwaits gov'ment does not want people to goto www.skype.com  it is on the BANED site list... like the one for porn ect... (kuwaits gov'ment restricts access to sites they dont deem "worthy" ie... the horriable word "cencorshipt") well sence it is not illegal in my eyes to be smarter than someone... how can i bounce around hiding that i am in kuwait and gain access to www.skype.com ?01:27
jamesishdrowner_: we can, at worst, put an entry in by hand. No biggie.01:27
xainjrib: i got steam all installed and running steam runs fine. its the games im haveing problems Gmod wont even load. and hl1 games give me error on opengl if u want to try and help plz pm that makes this easier lol also i have a nvdia 7300LE video card. and i cant seem to change my resolution01:27
DCPomyoyoned, http://paste.ubuntu.com/59062/01:27

DCPomdrowner_, is it just mount sda5?01:29
drowner_DCPom: NOT sda601:29
yoyonedDCPom: what are you trying to fix01:29
drowner_DCPom: can you mount your sda6 please?01:29

ActionParsnipjamesish: id mount to a folder withing /mnt01:30
=== blankthemuffin__ is now known as blankthemuffin
jamesishActionParsnip: why's that?01:30
DCPomM|sf|ts, kuwaits gov'ment does not want people to goto www.skype.com  it is on the BANED site list01:30
yoyonedDCPom: you server installation is sda6.  sda5 is swat01:30
M|sf|tsLjL: dude i will let you explain that to my wife... LOL01:30
M|sf|tsactionparsnip: so how do i use proxys ?01:30
ActionParsnipjamesish: so that /mnt can be a single folder for holding mountings01:30
LjLDCPom, M|sf|ts: whether or not you're breaking the law is probably something only a lawyer expert in Kuwait law could determine. all we can say is "do it at your own risk".01:30
ActionParsnipM|sf|ts: you set it in your browser01:31
drowner_M|sf|ts: so, then you are breaking the law! the solution is to put your computer in a bag, and move countries ;)01:31

yoyonedDCPom: drowner_ what are you guys trying to do01:31
jamesish ActionParsnip: It's an aside, I know, but I view /mnt as being the mount point for temporary mountings, and if I need something permanent I make another directory at an appropriate point in the tree.01:31
DCPomyoyoned, trying to mount the ubuntu server partition01:31

portablejimWhen I go "md5sum /dev/scd0" it returns "md5sum: /dev/scd0: Input/output error" after some CD activity.01:32
ActionParsnipjamesish: just makes sense to use subfolders in that folder to me01:32
jamesishActionParsnip: fisticuffs at dawn, then!01:32

ActionParsnipDavidCanarias: the iso will occupy the whole disk01:35
lbo_kenok   thanks  jamesish01:35
Odd-rationaleM|sf|ts: it uses https so it is harder to block...01:36
ActionParsnipM|sf|ts: that should get round it01:36
M|sf|tsActionParsnip: to hide myself and goto freaking www.skype.com01:36
DavidCanariasAction Parsnip: Is this why it's failing then? Do I have to make 2 separate disks?01:36
Odd-rationaleM|sf|ts: can you go to skype.org with vtunnel?01:37
sachaelis there any way to tell when a current linux install was done on a computer?01:37

Odd-rationaleM|sf|ts: but did vtunnel work?01:40
DCPomdrowner_, no idea xD01:40
lbo_kenmisfit the reason why they do it its cause skype can be used to  talk agains there gouvernement and its  considered as  treachry so they doesnt allow them to do so  with out supervision  im sure most   instant messenger are blocked01:40

After_MathHello, I am having trouble using network manager. I have deleted it from my desktop panel and I cant find it Under preferences or administrator, I have tried a few commands to run it in the terminal but it seems like it is already running, is there a way to stop all its proccesses and start it again. Thanks.01:52
ActionParsnipAfter_Math: ps -ef | grep -i nm will show any that are running01:52
ActionParsnipAfter_Math: id install wifi-radar and use that01:53
After_MathActionParsnip, thanks, Then just kill the pid?01:53
LjLAfter_Math: i don't have network manager installed, but i think the "gnome-network-manager" package is responsible for the panel icon01:53
ActionParsnipAfter_Math: yeah man01:53
After_MathActionParsnip, i did, I am having trouble with that as well01:53
KingOfDosDoes somebody here know anything about iptables (with the use of a NAT) and has a few minutes to help me with some kind of setup?01:53
DavidCanariasActionParsnip: I can see you are occupied, but how can I extract the data from the iso - and would it still work OK?01:53
LjLAfter_Math: so "dpkg -L gnome-network-manager | grep bin" to find out what's the command to start it01:53
After_MathLjL, ya, how do I run that?01:53
After_MathLjL, awsome thaks :P01:53
ActionParsnipDavidCanarias: try it, it might work01:53
LjLAfter_Math: sorry, that's "network-manager-gnome" anyway, not "gnome-network-manager"01:54
jamesishKingOfDos: what up?01:54
BobCFCAfter_Math: network manager runs at startup in you System->Prefs->Session as   nm-applet --sm-disable... it runs in the notification area.. should return when u logouot or reboot01:54
After_MathLjL, ok thanks it said gnome-network-manager wasnt installed ^^01:54

KingOfDosit's somekind of iptables setup, but i can't find a solution for it (searched a few days, but i think that i'm using the wrong keywords/methods)01:56

I chose manual and 'none' for module needed to access, and tried guessing the /dev device but just keeps failing. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?02:07
LjLpreston_s: yes, you have 6 virtual terminals, accessed using F1 to F6. F7 is for X itself. F8, F9 etc are for any other X sessions you might have running concurrently02:07

_2KingOfDos short version of that post.  "vidio driver burp"02:31
dr_willisKingOfDos,  i agree with _2 - i would start by disabling the frambuffer, and splash screens  with the proper kernel options in menu.lst02:32
adudeis there a reason my swap turns its self off?02:32
bobertdosadude: What do you mean? When does it do this?02:32
_2vga=normal  ^02:32
_2+ nosplash02:33
LighttitanGnome hates me for some reason right now. I think I will wait to fix it till the 30th when I go to Intrepid... unless someone knows how to and can tell me. When I try to load Gnome it just loads the wallpaper, nothing else. I have tried deleting .gnome2 and .confg files... but it hasn't fix it.02:33
Craihhgneycould anyone please help me with janusVM in ubuntu?02:33
_2!enter > me02:33
ubottu_2, please see my private message02:33
KingOfDoshmz, that's a suggestion. fully shutdown the computer :)02:33
KingOfDoshope that it's back on normal then02:33
Lighttitanoh and KDE works02:33
Supersaiyan_IVKingOfDos, that bug doesn't exist on gnome :P02:33
adudewhen i open the system monitor the swap is listed as 0 gb02:33
predator363uuhgh i dunno why i bothered to come in here i knew it would be to busy and id never get any help02:34
tatterhello everyone im a new to linux can i get some help on how to use it a little better02:34
_2Supersaiyan_IV course not. it's kernel/gfx level.02:34
KingOfDosrofl. even when i'd turn of my computer, my TFT panel does NOT go standby02:34
adudethen if i go into the partition editor i get an option to turn swapon.02:34
bobertdostatter: What would you like to learn? :D02:34
Supersaiyan_IV_2, I was just being cynical02:34
_2KingOfDos hard reset.02:35
dr_willisadude,  check fstab for a proper swap entry, try the 'sudo swapon' command also.02:35
tatterwell..is there such a thing as file sharing...i was seeing this beryl what is that02:35
Craihhgneycould anyone please help me with janusVM in ubuntu?02:36
KingOfDos_2: even when i'd disconnect the DVI cable the screen stays on02:36
KingOfDosso kubuntu 8.10 killed my 350 euro 20.1" widescreen :)02:36
ActionParsnip!beryl | tatter02:36
ubottutatter: Beryl has been merged with Compiz to form Compiz-Fusion.  New Beryl installs are discouraged. See also !compiz02:36
KingOfDosat least, that's what i'd think at the moment. i'm going to try a VGA cable to my laptop02:37
adudeok will see if the swap stays on.02:37
DCPomKingOfDos, sounds like a problem with the screen, not the kub, but i don't have a solution02:37
_2KingOfDos very likely.   specally if you were trying to get the highest rez/refresh out of it you could.02:37
wall-ecan anyone help me and tell me how to burn mkv file in ubuntu?02:38
Craihhgneycould anyone please help me with janusVM in ubuntu?02:38
tatteri just wanted that 3d look to it02:38
tatteris there a way to get that02:38
BobCFCtatter: beryl is the old way of doing 3D spinning cubes and other effects.. if you have 3D drivers setupp such as nvidia or ati u can enable new compiz fusion instead02:39
_2KingOfDos i'm just saying i have read the warnings on several things, like svgatextmode for example. that say plainly "experiment at your own risk, setting the rates too high can destroy your hardware!"    just a thought.02:39
BobCFCtatter: do you have 3d grphics?02:39
tatteri have an on board grphic card02:39
tatterwill that work02:40
BobCFCtatter: maybe02:40
tatterso what would i have to do to get that 3d effect02:40
KingOfDos_2: the screen is working when i'm using the VGA connection instead of the DVI connection02:40
wall-e]no idea whats the best program to use to burn mkv files?02:40
BobCFCtatter: try and enable some 3D drivers look in menu System->Admin->Hardware Drivers and see if you can tick a box, you wiol need to reboot02:40
dr_williswall-e,  by burn you mean convert to dvd video, and create a dvd-video disk to play in a dvd player?02:41
KingOfDosi'll try a "oldscool" setup with no dualscreen02:41
ActionParsniptatter: install graphics drivers first02:41
ActionParsnipKingOfDos: how is a single display "old skool"?02:42
=== Strider_ is now known as StriderK
tatterwhere would i find a graphic driver02:42
KingOfDosand the fact is, the "textmode" information comes only on the right screen, and the left screen is'nt working anymore :)02:42
wall-ewhen i was using windows i just put the mkv file on data dvd and played perfect in ps3! but ubuntu just give errror02:42
StriderKCan someone help me out with a stereo headset problem?02:42
BobCFCtatter:  look in menu System->Admin->Hardware Drivers and see if you can tick a box, you wiol need to reboot02:42
_2ok i have a futureistic question.  or line of questions. i am not yet at this point. but i know nothing about windows, and will in a day or two be trying to connect vista and ubuntu.  i know that putty can ssh windows to linux (provided sshd is running on linux) but how can i access the windows vista from linux ?02:42
KingOfDosActionParsnip: i was refering to my setup based on the X11 config with "single screen" setup. not for dual/single screen in general :)02:42
_2networking help please   ^02:43
ActionParsnip_2: share the folder with a rightclick then smbmount02:43
tatterit say no propreatary drivers are in use on this system02:43
_2ActionParsnip any special packages needed in either os ?02:43
ActionParsnip_2: make sure your firewall allows the traffic02:43
wall-eso basicly i just want to get the mkv file to dvd! unless anyone can tell me how to get it directly to ps3?02:43
BobCFCtatter: can you activate one? is there an in the list?02:43
tatterits blank02:43
ActionParsnip_2: samba in linux for smbmount02:43
_2ActionParsnip k.  check firewall and get correct ip.  share folder and smbmount it.    is that all ?   anyway to run a command on the vista box ?02:44
ActionParsnip_2: you could rdp with rdesktop02:44
bobertdostatter: Unfortunately, integrated chipsets often aren't capable of direct rendering, necessary for compiz to function.02:44
KingOfDos_2: i'd powered of my computer AND the screen for a while. and now it's working again :)02:45
tatterok so no 3d effect huh02:45
BobCFCtatter: it might not work then. if you want to try anyway goto System->Prefs->Appearance and click on the Visual Effects tab then try to choose extra02:45
arvind_khadrihi, i have real-player 11 installed but even then i cant play real audio on firefox... the plugins segfault02:45
ActionParsnipbobertdos: compiz is quite light. it just ruins everything else02:45
KingOfDosnote to self: do NOT use the console directly from my computer for a while. at least when i'm not switching "back" to X11 (only for a full restart)02:45
tatteroh i can make the window flimsy02:45
_2ActionParsnip rdesktop you say?   what about telnet  anything i could connect to like that in vista ?02:45
tatterive allready did that02:45
BobCFCtatter: oh good sign!02:46
ActionParsnip_2: you could install a telnet server02:46
BobCFCtatter: if no 3d it says sorry cant enable at that point!02:46
wall-eokay well thanks anyway!?!02:46
bobertdosActionParsnip: haha, I know, but I wasn't really talking about its weight either02:46
_2ActionParsnip thanks for the info that will point me in the right dirrection.02:46
tatterok bummer so what else could i do with linux what are the high points of it02:46
ActionParsnipbobertdos: i think compiz is garbage02:46
=== Eisbar is now known as Jesus
BobCFCtatter: if you have wobbly windows it should be working?02:47
BobCFCtatter: do they wobble?02:47
tatteri can only switch only 2 windows i dont get the cube effect02:47
BobCFCtatter: yes you need to install something02:47
bobertdosActionParsnip: I more or less agree/ I used to use it, and I've always had hardware capable of it, but I got very irritated with it, very quickly.02:47
KingOfDosbut yea, I was kind of worry'd that my expencive screen whas damaged. but even when that whas a fact, then i'd just did a bugsubmit to ubuntu. and send the screen back so they will fix it for me (waranty :) )02:47
Grey_LokiThe effects that Compiz gives are more in the nature of a bonus for me than a major selling point of linux02:48
_2KingOfDos so a hard reset did the trick ?02:48
ActionParsnipbobertdos: same here, fluxbox all the way for me02:48
BobCFCgoto System->Admin->Synaptic02:48
tatteryea that is what sold me02:48
BobCFCtatter: goto System->Admin->Synaptic02:48
KingOfDos_2: i'd did a hard reset of the screen, for about 2 minutes.02:48
tatterand then what do i do there02:49
drowner_unusual problem: I have default gnome installation, also have e and xfce and flux desktops, when i try and run a diff desktop i get booted back to log in, seemingly randomly, after about 1 hours. Happened with XFCE, and with flux. Anyone ver heard of such a thing?02:49
BobCFCtatter: type compiz in search box you should get about 20-30 results02:49
_2KingOfDos yeah. i would probably still disable kernel framebuffering for safty sake on that particular combo.02:49
bobertdosGrey_Loki: agreed02:49
kitcheKingOfDos: your issue is not really a ubuntu issue it's a nvidia driver issue02:49
media7e sysinfo02:49
tatterok did that02:50
arvind_khadrihi, i have real-player 11 installed but even then i cant play real audio on firefox... the plugins segfault02:50
BobCFCtatter: you want to install compiz-fusion-plugins-main, compiz-fusion-plugins-extra and compizconfig-settings-manager02:50
_2kitche yes,  and imo ubuntu shouldnt be supplying a driver it can't support.02:50
BobCFCtatter: you might have the first already02:50
BobCFCtatter: to install one righht click on it and choose Mark for installation02:51
tattergreen box means i have it?02:51
kitche_2: if you say so02:51
BobCFCtatter: yes whgite means not installed02:51
bobertdostatter: yup02:51
_2it's just an opinion02:51
devslashnullwho here has run ubuntu on an eeepc ?02:51
BobCFCtatter: the important ones are Extra plugins and settings-manager02:51
=== djhash_ is now known as djhash
ActionParsnipdevslashnull: ive had it running ok02:52
KingOfDoskitche: i wont say that it's a direct "ubuntu" problem, it's only happening on "ubuntu" with some kind of 3rd party (in this case nvidia or x11, or kde 4.1).02:52
BobCFCtatter: click the apply button once you have made selection02:53
_2when an opensource org. supplies a binary driver,  it is catch 22   damned if you do and damned if you don't.   you can't support it. but you are for all practical purposes, the source of the broken thing.02:53
tatterok i had them all except compizconfig-setting-manger bob cfc02:53
tatterso now what is my next step02:54
BobCFCtatter: ok settings manager is like control panel for the effects you need that one to enable the cube02:54
BobCFCtatter: click apply button02:54
tatteri allready downloaded it02:54
devslashnullActionParsnip, did you overclock it02:54
kitcheKingOfDos: it happens on all distros just not ubuntu02:54
ActionParsniptatter: its good to get your 3d accelleration but compiz eventually gets really annoying02:54
ActionParsnipdevslashnull: no, no need02:55
bobertdostatter: and once it's installed, be aware that you need at least 4 horizontal virtual desktops to have the cube actually be a cube :p02:55
BobCFCtatter: ok now close synaptic and you should have a new menu to enable effects.. goto System->Prefs->Compiz....02:55
BobCFCtatter: it might be called Advanced effects on hardy i forget i am running interpid ibex02:55
SnowWritehi,  I'm moving from Windows to Ubuntu and having trouble with my network connection02:55
tatterthats cool i found it02:56
KingOfDoskitche: i'd understand that. so i'm not saying its a specific ubuntu problem. but it's happening "in my case" on ubuntu :)02:56
tatterso do u know how to use it02:56
SnowWritecan anyone point me to a good how-to/fix that I can start with to troublesshot02:56
_2SnowWrite wireless, wired or dialup ?02:56
SnowWriteethernet .. ubuntu intrepid02:56
ActionParsnipdevslashnull: if you use it as a netbook its fast enough02:56
BobCFCtatter: ok now there is alot of stuff in there i can't expllain because my food is cooked, but Click 3D cube and Rotate Cube to get started and that should get u spinning .. hint: crtl-alt-mouse102:57
KingOfDosit's a big diffrence if i'd say "it a ubuntu problem" or "its a problem for me at ubuntu" ;)02:57

Myyogagive me one moment to do that03:18
Scuniziposeidon: first you need to do your updates.. in a terminal sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade03:18

CITguy08where do i check that?03:18
Scuniziposeidon: then there should be an option under System/Admin/Hardware drivers to install the nvidia drivers.03:19

robbiet480im sorry to repeat its just very urgent to get this working since it is a server install. my eth0 has disappeared and ifconfig says no such device. the lines are in /etc/network/interfaces. i was trying to add virtual interfaces via eth0:x where x is a number but on reboot only the loopback interface comes up. i switched to eth1 and that seemed to fix it but after another reboot it did it again. its a realtek 8168 card.03:55
KeatonI tried putting my fat32 partition in my fstab file so I wouldn't have to manually mount it anymore, but now only root can write anything. Is there some setting I can pass in fstab to make it writable for my normal user?03:55
gluonmanAfter_Math, hold on. I re-created the directory using sudo, which might have been my problem. let me try it again and I'll give you the output.03:55
dr_willisCraihhgney,  what represents it where?    You mean the ICONS?03:55
After_Mathgluonman, ok03:55
Craihhgneyno like ./ ~03:55

noobuntuhmm, beyond my capability, I'm afraid.  So you use a recover cd with Partimage on it and then run it each time, right?  Is it a lengthy process?04:05
noobuntucircs, btw, thanks for the help04:05
devslashnullanyone here have an eee pc04:06
noobuntudevs, I have a 1000H04:06

RetrogradCulturehow do i add admin status to a user from the command line? with sudo05:34
OscarTGrouchRetro:  under linux it is not advised to give a user admin rights.  THis is were sudo and root come into play.  If you look at howtoforge.(something) you can find a tutorial on how to set up the root account.  I find adding that can help make some admin actions easier than typing sudo all the time.05:34
kab3wmRetrogradCulture: visudo05:34
shawn-pI'm not sure how to determine whether wlan0 is connected to the access point... however, both "ping" and "ping google.com" fail05:34
shawn-p( is the address of my wireless router.)05:34

dulakOscarTGrouch: that's what he wanted to do, give admin access to a user05:39
OscarTGrouchi was allway under the impression that under basic use you shouldnt always have admin rights.  one use sudo or root when you need to.05:39

DasEikebomix: so with the force-cmd aboce you tried to remount root, lol,06:08
R0b0t1Someone linked me to the commands to change the default Java before, could someone do that again?06:08
shawn-pI'm running ubuntu 7.10... I'm not sure if the broadcom support was as nice as it is in the latest rev.  But the native support didn't appear to work06:08
DCPomrmdir -f . will remove the current directory, right? (sorry for so many questions)06:09
kebomixDasEi : no  i changed it to sda5 :D06:09
shawn-p(ifconfig could not see the device)06:09
FreshUbuntuNoobshawn-p, Credit given. I have only worked with Hardy06:09
BundyKgeeky_goowy, just install kubuntu on top of ubuntu sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop06:09
DasEikebomix: sda5 is your fat32 one, sda7 is ntfs, you wanto to fat 32, right ?06:09
geeky_goowyFlannel: probably sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop??06:09
Flannelgeeky_goowy: That would be the command, yes.06:09
kebomixDasEiL i want to unmount ntfs partitions06:09
DasEikebomix: sudo umount /dev/sda706:10
FreshUbuntuNoobshawn-p, Make sure that you installed the right version for your driver. Like you said there were many06:10
shawn-phmm.. make sure I installed the right version of which?06:10
geeky_goowyFlannel: i got a kubuntu 8.04 cd.. i don't want to download the DKE package as 'm almost out of free bandwidth.. is there any way to use 'CD as a repository' like on debian?06:10
Flannelgeeky_goowy: Is it a Kubuntu desktop CD or a Kubuntu alternate CD?06:10
geeky_goowyflannel:desktop cd06:11
FreshUbuntuNoobshawn-p, You said there were many bcmxxx.ini files. Make sure you insatlled the one for your card06:11
Flannelgeeky_goowy: then no.  You'd need the alternate CD to have it act as the repository.06:11
geeky_goowyoh ok..06:11
geeky_goowyflannel- thanks.. :)06:11
R0b0t1Someone linked me to the commands to change the default Java before, could someone do that again?06:11
DasEihttp://aptoncd.sourceforge.net/          , geeky_goowy:06:12
R0b0t1IE, I want to use SUN's Java, not the openJdk.06:12
R0b0t1(I've nothing against it, but it doesn't work right)06:12
FlannelR0b0t1: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java#Choosing%20the%20default%20Java%20to%20use06:12
shawn-pFreshUbuntuNoob:  sorry, I miscommunicated.  There was only one .inf file in drivers/winxp_2k/06:12
shawn-pso that's the one I installed06:12
legend2440R0b0t1: sudo update-alternatives --config java06:12
R0b0t1Flannel: Thanks!06:12
shawn-pthe other files were .sys or .cab06:12
R0b0t1legend2440: Thanks!06:13
DasEikebomix: now you can use gparted to put it to another fs, all data on sda7 will be lost06:13
geeky_goowyDasEi: but i have installed most of the packages using synaptic!06:13
geeky_goowyDasEi: the link u gave me sez i can copy packages installed with apt only..06:13
R0b0t1Waka waka waka.06:13
shawn-pTHERE.  Success.06:14
kebomixDasEi : there is no data , it is empty :D , i just have aproblem when i try to install windows on another partition it tell methat Windows is Not Compatible with this partition06:14
FreshUbuntuNoobshawn-p, It worked?06:14
shawn-pI had to configure it with a static IP address... for some reason DHCP wasn't working06:14
DasEigeeky_goowy:could be a problem, then,  hmm no flatrate available ?06:14
DasEikebomix: the way round fat32 might work06:15
geeky_goowyDasEi, no flatrate.. :(06:15
shawn-pafter that, I went to the network manager (the icon in the upper right)... went to my device... properties.... "enable roaming mode"06:15
enemabanditanyone have any idea why there might be a delay in certain (but not all) mouse events in x server?  I'm running two displays, my secondary display has no delay at all but my primary has about a one second delay for certain things like right clicks and window maximizing.06:15
shawn-pat that point, it found the Mondair access point06:15
kebomixDasEi : i tried ntfs and fat 32 all failed give me same message06:15
FreshUbuntuNoobshawn-p, take a look at man dhclient, for more information on DHCP client. Personally, I hate DHCP. Stupid idea, and stupid implementation06:15
shawn-pI told it to connect, it prompted me for the password, then again (for the keychain), and then it connected.06:15
shawn-pso yay.06:15
Flannelgeeky_goowy: If you have no alternate CD, doing it through package management (just the packages downloading) is cheaper bandwidth wise as using the CD06:15
bruenigdhcp is nice, no effort networking06:15
shawn-pthank you very much for working with me FreshUbuntuNoob.06:15
keeweeHi. I have an Asus Eee with Ubuntu on it. I want to make my webcam work with Mercury, and I can get it. Any idea?06:16
DasEikebomix: doesn't the win-installer find the partitons ? xp ?06:16
keeweeIt works with other programs (i.e. skype)06:16
FreshUbuntuNoobshawn-p, If you are connecting to anything other than WEP, you would either need the new version of Network Manager (compile yourself), or get yourself Wicd, or be an extremely expert with console06:16
FreshUbuntuNoobshawn-p, No problem, I did nothing :)06:16

Lion-OI'll soon find out06:37
geeky_goowyafter_math: generally, 64 bit is better..06:37

After_Mathgeeky_goowy, ah ok06:38
geeky_goowyafter_math: 32 bit will more than suffice for home PCs.06:38

dethdolor find what key will open the boot menu and if you installed ubuntu right then it should go through06:44

DigitalFizdethdol, how would i do that im in ubuntu now do you know a tool to do this?06:45
FreshUbuntuNoobkebomix, It is available to install under Add/Remove menu, or some packages via Synaptic. I do believe that for full implementation it requires the Java installation (JRE is preferred). And if I remember correctly, I think it is actually hidden from the menus as well06:45

themimejamesish: no, nore mysql.log, but, just found this in syslog, i think its having trouble binding with the ip --> Oct 18 01:42:24 mimeserver mysqld[7032]: 081018  1:42:24 [ERROR] Can't start server: Bind on TCP/IP port: Cannot assign requested address06:46
themimejamesish: i remember thinking about messing with IP stuff but didn't think i actually went through with any of it.  also, im shelled in now (its a box sitting in the corner) and i can view my site via the IP in firefox06:47
FreshUbuntuNoobReaverbot, Working normally. Must be some sort of problem with the server responsible for that domain06:47
jamesishthemime: that's the most likely cause of the issue; mysql binds on a port through localhost. So, resolve your networking issues and all will be well. What's in /etc/hosts?06:48
themimeah, one of the warnings was to check for /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' existing, which it doesn't.  not sure why it doesn't.06:48
jamesishbecause mysql isn't running.06:48
jamesishmysql creates that socket.06:48
acee12345if this is the wrong channel to ask about by driver question please direct me to the correct one06:48
themimejamesish: ah ok, checking on /etc/hosts, one moment06:49
themimemy job is working on web servers, this is so embarrasing >=|06:49

CaptainMorganis there a way to shut of a cpu without having to edit the menu.lst file and rebooting... ? would be nice if the rebooting could be avoided altogether... any thoughts ?06:54

jemyzhang_anybody here uses the sound card alc260?06:54

ezzieyguywufenselic: not possible since i don't have enough space locally for that06:54
jamesishCaptainMorgan: what do you mean? To shut down, you have to shut down; you shouldn't need to shut down to edit menu.lst, though.06:54
ezzieyguywufenselic: i dunno if that would work....06:54
themimeezzieyguywuf, Enselic: haha, i have a more ugly approach, "find /the/dir -type d cp {} other/dir/ \;"  <--- don't try that, its not tested and im sure im missing something06:55

indian_munnda_hey guys i wana do networking of ubuntu with vista can anyone tell me what should i do????08:14
zcat[1]Might play with II on the lappy08:14
BobCFCbut but.. the wallpaper is amazing08:14
dr_willisindian_munnda_,  #1 realize that theres more to 'networking' then just seeing 'shares' - :) the 'network neighborhood' stuff in windows is  controlled by 'samba' under linux.08:14
wpsduse samba08:14
dr_willis!samba | indian_munnda_08:14
ubottuindian_munnda_: Samba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and http://help.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.  Also see https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/21209808:14
dr_willisindian_munnda_,  you want to access windows shares? or set up the linux box as a fileserver?08:15
edgearshould i disable aiglx too?08:15
zcat[1]indian_munnda_: basically plug them both in the same network and the whole 'right click and share' thing should work for you just like windows to windows...08:15
wpsdhas someone succeed in setting ipw2100 ?08:15
zcat[1]don't actualyl have vista here, but I've got shares between this machine and a windows image in virtualbox ;)08:16
indian_munnda_dr_willis: i wanna share the network as well as i wanna run internet on both.08:16
zcat[1]and it was really really easy to set up.08:16
wpsdsamba works even from virtualpc08:16
dr_willisindian_munnda_,  those are totally different tasks. :)08:16
indian_munnda_zcat[1]: i have connected both laptop and ubuntu comp with a cross cable08:17
SuperMario1776mez: YES! it booted, thank you. But I still can't find target. The info I entered into menu.lst is showing up in the grub loader, so it08:17
dr_willisindian_munnda_,  samba handles the shares. and as for internet-conection shareing.. well its doable.. i forget how.08:17
SuperMario1776it's somewhere.... what the hell08:17
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about bridge08:17
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about canasta08:17
zcat[1]indian_munnda_: ahhh.. install firestarter, and connection sharing is pretty much identical to how you'd do it in windows. tick the 'share my connection' box..08:17
drownerNot inviting you round for a card night then. Sheesh08:17
dr_willisindian_munnda_,  you may want to set up a dhcp server on one machine also.08:17
indian_munnda_dr_willis: if i want to access windows vista files from ubuntu machinewhat should i do?08:18
zcat[1]dr_willis: firestarter does that for you too ;)08:18
dr_willisindian_munnda_,  the linux box/gnome file manager can browse windows shares  easially enough.08:18
zcat[1]indian_munnda_: right-click and share the folder on vista, "places > network" on Ubuntu..08:19
dr_willisgnome menus -> places -> network08:19
SuperMario1776how would just search for the file menu.lst?08:19
dr_willisSuperMario1776,  locate menu.lst   is one way - its in /boot/grub by the way08:19
BobCFCindian_munnda_: dr_willis to share a connection you need to bridge the network, this creates an extra interface like eth0 eth1 and pipes the internet betweenthem transparently08:19
zcat[1]SuperMario1776: /boot/grub/menu.lst08:19
BobCFCgoogle bridge network turorial ubuntu08:19
zcat[1]SuperMario1776: and yeah, locate or find / -name menu.lst will find it08:19
dr_willisBobCFC,  last i did that was ages ago.. and i followd the ip-masquerading howto.  :)08:20
=== Oric_ is now known as Oric
wpsd--> indian_munnda : i suggest you using the free vmware server its better than virtual pc ...08:20
zcat[1]dr_willis: The hard way... it's just a checkbox in firestarter now, 'share this connection' and it sets up the second interface, masq, dhcp...08:21
Sirrushedgear,  and you installed the codecs correct?08:21
dr_williszcat[1],  i go the real easy way now.. i got a router. :)08:21
BobCFCzcat[1]: that is good to know08:21
edgearvlc does not need codecs i think @ Sirrush08:22
zcat[1]I got a router too, but I make the rest of the network go through a transparent squid proxy.. had dans guardian on there for a while too.08:22

zcat[1]Peddy: you mean http, not smb, etc...08:24
zcat[1]they're all tcp/ip08:24
BobCFCPeddy: ok that was samba, apache is overkill for files...08:24
jamesishdrhe|lap:sudo apt-get install ssh did it for me.08:24
zcat[1]the man wants http, it's easy enough to set up.. what's the problem?08:25
PeddyOops, yes I do :/08:25
SuperMario1776Awesome, thanks for everyones help. Three days of hell is finally over.08:25
zcat[1]Peddy: for really easy sharing sudo chmod a+rw /var/www (as long as you don't have any 'hostile users' on your machine) and then just make a shortcut to it08:26
dr_willisdrhe|lap,  ssh starts as a service by default - if its isntalled08:26

Peddyzcat[1]: thanks for your help, I'ma get dinner. Bye.08:26
SuperMario1776really noob question, what do you add to a command to pause output one page at a time?08:27
magnetrondrhe|lap→ just install the "ssh" package and you are good to go08:27
zcat[1]SuperMario1776: | less08:27
magnetronSuperMario1776→ use the "more" or the "less" command. they are the same.08:27
zcat[1]'less is more'08:27
magnetronSuperMario1776→ example: ls | more08:28
magnetronSuperMario1776→ another example: dmesg | less08:28
GarfIIeldAnother noob question: Is there a texteditor with highlighted text for PHP, HTML, CSS etc.? Ofc I want a webserver too that includes everything like WAMP for Windows.08:28
zcat[1]they're the same, more or less ;)08:28

indian_munnda_magnetron: sorry but i haven't seen any08:31
drownerare there any ubuntuforums.org admins in here?08:32
zcat[1]indian_munnda_: I think vista has one built in. don't ask me how you configure the damn thing though08:32
magnetronindian_munnda_→ there's an integrated firewall in vista unless you disable it. vista doesn't respond to pings by default08:32
indian_munnda_magnetron: ok let me see08:32
BobCFChehe magnetron how do you draw the arrow?08:33
magnetronindian_munnda_→ for help with vista go to ##windows08:33
magnetronBobCFC→ AltGr + i08:33
zcat[1]If vista can send a ping and get a reply back I'd say things are mostly working at the hardware level08:33

Nyquist333How do you change the MTU of eth0 at startup. It always goes to 1500, even if I set it in the network-manager to 1492 and rebot. I've also used sudo ifconfig eth0 mtu 149208:49
Nyquist333The network-manager always says it's automatic after reboot. Yes, I'm using DHCP.08:50
magnetronNyquist333→ the MTU is adjusted automatically in Linux. if it's ever too large it will decrease automatically.08:50

bittyxI have a bit of a problem on my PC and I'm not sure whether the cause is WinXP or Ubuntu. I have a ~150GB HDD on my PC. When I got it fresh, I created two primary partitions, C: (20GB), and D: (100GB), leaving the rest for Ubuntu.10:48
BadElvis[amadeus]: ok, now restart?10:48
BobCFCKolma: lol, asda is a supermarket in the UK10:48
Kolmai know xD10:49
Kolmaevery1 i mention game to says taht10:49
bittyxI installed Ubuntu into the empty space and for a while it was cool, but for unrelated reasons, I decided to delete Ubuntu and use the leftover space for another NTFS partitions for WinXP. So I deleted Ubuntu, did FIXMBR from WinXP's installations CD, to skip Ubuntu's boot loader, and I was back in WinXP.10:49
[amadeus]BadElvis: Yes, or is there a modules.alias also?10:50
bittyxThen, I used the Computer Management from Control Panel->Administrative Tools, to format the previously Ubuntu space into a third primary partition, G: (~30GB).10:50
BadElvis[amadeus]: oh, sorry i didnt check. already restarting10:51

Kolmasays mouse isnt shown :X10:52
bittyxCurrently, in Computer Management, I can see three primary partitions - C: (20GB), D: (100GB), G: (30GB). What I want to do now is reorganize my HDD space in the following manner - I'd like to leave the D: partition, but I want to delete C: and G: and install WinXP onto a bigger C: partition (30-40GB).10:52
BobCFCJa1: do you mean shortcuts on the Panel?10:52
bittyxNow the problem is, when I boot from the WinXP installation CD, it doesn't show my partitions properly, rather it shows only a single C partition with around 130GB space, and no free space on the HDD. Does anyone know what could be the problem?10:52
Kolmawindows cant see EXT310:53
Ja1i mean the shortcuts using in gnome10:53
