bsniderno, no. if it worked in -6 but not -7 it's a regression they'll have to fix. something that was changed in the -7 update00:00

BWMwine works!00:00
BWMI can play games again! XD00:00
Mark_MillimanI'm going to start using the -6 kernel until I see a new kernel or ALSA update00:00
bsniderMark_Milliman, what's the pciid of your sound chip?00:01
Mark_MillimanIt worked in a prior version of -7 like -7-11 or something like that00:02

Mark_Millimanbsnider, what do you mean platform? i686, 32-bit, ???00:04

Mark_Milliman [8086:24c5]00:06
bsniderMark_Milliman, i'm on 64 bit and it is fine here. maybe the problem is specific to i68600:06
Mark_Millimanperhaps, I have read where it still works with the rt kernel too00:07
BWMhmm00:08
BWMtext is fuzzy in Elite Forcew00:08
BWMlike it's not at a high enough resolution00:08
BWMany idea why that would be? It's a wine app00:08
bsniderMark_Milliman, our pciids are almost the same00:08
bsniderlikely using the same drivers00:08
Mark_Millimanbsnider, that's not too unusual00:09
reabycorrect driver for the card is:  intel8x000:09
Mark_Millimanthese controllers are used in several machines00:09
bsniderhere's the build changelog for the new kernel: https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/intrepid-changes/2008-October/008957.html00:10
Mark_Millimanreaby, so I should try to load the snd-hda-intel8x0 module?00:11
reabyMark_Milliman: try00:11
bsniderreaby, where didst you find that info?00:11
reabyhttp://www.calel.org/pci-devices/alsa-device-list.html00:12
Mark_Millimanreaby, I don't have that module00:12
reabytho it's a bit old (2007)00:12
Mark_Millimansorry, gents, I have to get going.  Thanks for the pointers though.  I'll continue to watch the forums for others with this issue.  Until then I'll use the -6 kernel.00:14

FFForeverohhh yeah that reminds me half way booting i have to hold down a key till it stops moving the loading bar then it finishes loading...01:37
FFForeverany idea about that wgrant01:37
wgrantThere's a bug on that, but I'm no kernel god.01:37
FFForeverok when i boot up it says (EE) No devices detected01:38

zyrorlhardware drivers01:46
zyrorl177 doesnt work properly in intrepid01:47
FFForeverzyrorl restricted device manager won't work in safe gfx mode :(01:47
FFForeverinstalling 173 via apt :)01:49
FFForeverzyrorl if i build the kernel by hand will that solve my boot up problem?01:50
zyrorli dunno01:50
wgrantFFForever: You are not meant to upgrade a machine to a pre-release if it is a critical one.01:51
FFForeverwgrant i have no other option...01:51
wgrantWhy not?01:52
FFForevermost things i need require the newer version then what apt offers in 8.04... also wifi works in 8.10 but not 8.04....01:52
wgrant"need"01:52
zyrorldefine^01:52
FFForeverthe point is i need wifi reguardless of the os...01:52
zyrorlwhat wireless device you have?01:54
FFForeveratheros01:55
FFForeveri tried madwifi and ndiswrapper the hardware manager in 8.04...01:55

FFForeverit says This driver is activated but not currently in use...01:57
zyrorl*shrugs*, i have an intel 4965, its got enough problems on its own (like not obtaining dhcp if WMM is enabled), never had an atheros to play with01:58
FFForeverwmm?01:59

zyrorli think01:59
zyrorlhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wireless_Multimedia_Extensions01:59
dredhammercan someone tell me what the link is for the intrepid ibex beta dvd iso02:01
bsniderFFForever, the old madwifi driver is deprecated in intrepid because of the huge kernel jump (from .24 to .27)02:09
bsnideruse the ath5k driver instead02:09
FFForeverhow do i install it02:09
bsniderin other words, remove the linux-restriced-modules package02:10
FFForeveru just recompiled madwifi-hal version 0.10.5.602:10
bsniderath5k is in the kernel already. you don't install anything. you take out the conflicting madwifi parts02:10
FFForeverbsnider no packages found for linux-restricted-modules02:11
bsnidersearch for restricted02:11
FFForeverhow02:12
wgrantlinux-restricted-modules-2.6.XX-X-something02:12
bsniderin synaptic02:12
bsniderhey grant, how ya doin'?02:12
FFForeverthere are 402:13
FFForeverremove them all?02:13
bsnideryes02:13
bsniderthey're conflicting with the ath5k driver02:13
FFForeverok removing02:14
FFForeverwhy dont we use ath5k by default?02:14
bsniderthe only reason they're in there is because you probably upgraded from hardy02:14
FFForeverwell i couldn't get the live cd to install...02:14
FFForevercouldn't get xorg started at all...02:15
bsniderwhich one?02:15
FFForeverdaily live cd02:15
bsniderwhat was wrong with it?02:15
FFForeverxorg won't start...02:15
FFForeverbsnider now what do i do?02:16
bsniderdo an lsmod and check for loaded modules with "ath" like ath_pci02:17
bsnideror wlan02:17
FFForeveri loaded ath5k by hand02:18
bsnideryou need to remove them. the command to remove them is sudo modprobe -r modulename02:18
FFForeverbut nothing with ath_pci comes up02:18
bsniderif that didn't mkae your wireless work, restart02:19
FFForeverone moment removing ndiswrapper02:19
racquadhi guys! I have ubuntu 8.04 installed on an acer one and I just upgraded to 8.10. the thing is that the video is strange, too slow. to move a window is a pain.02:19
FFForeverok rebooting02:20
bsniderracquad, what video card is in that thing?02:21
racquadintel 94502:21
FFForever*prays this works*02:21
racquadbsnider, on 8.04 it worked very gently. on 8.10, even a simple scroll on a webpage under firefox is a pain!02:22
bsniderracquad, so the performance is significantly worse than hardy?02:22
racquadworse. significantly. i don't know why, since this video card is well supported by x.org02:22
bsniderracquad, did you upgrade or do a clean install?02:23
racquadupgrade02:23
FFForeverbsnider how do i make it auto load ath5k?02:23
racquaddist-upgrade02:23
wgrantracquad: dist-upgrade, or through update-manager?02:23
bsniderFFForever, that driver will be automatically selected02:23
racquadI know it still a beta, but it will be available very soon02:23
FFForevernope02:23
racquadyes. update-manager -d02:23
FFForeveri just had to load it by hand again02:23
wgrantracquad: OK. Good. Pastebin /etc/X11/xorg.con02:23
wgrant/etc/X11/xorg.conf02:23
racquadjust a min02:24
bsnideror wipe that file out02:24
racquadit has 69 lines long.02:24
wgrant!pastebin | racquad02:24
ubotturacquad: pastebin is a service to post multiple-lined texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu.com (make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic)02:24
bsnideri was going to tell him to send it inot oblivion02:24
wgrantbsnider: Best to check that there's nothing special there first.02:24
wgrantOnce I look over it I hope to recommend the same thing.02:24
racquadhttp://paste.ubuntu.com/59531/02:25
bsniderwhat the hell is that thing anyway? "acer one"?02:25
wgrantracquad: sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg02:25
racquadbsnider: a netbook by acer. similar to asus eee pc02:26
wgrantThere's nothing beneficial in that xorg.conf now.02:26
wtgeeHey all, I've been trying to figure out why my authenticate/authorization fails from some screens, any ideas?  Specifically the Hardware Drivers screen is what I am looking at.02:26
bsnideroh, that thing02:26
wgrantwtgee: What is the precise text of the failure message/02:26
bsniderFFForever, did you say you built a custom hal?02:26
wtgeewgrant: It just doesn't recognize my password02:26
FFForeverbsnider yeah but i guess i removed it...02:26
FFForeverwell madwifi-hal02:27
racquadwgrant: it has done nothing. just a new file02:27
wgrantracquad: It shouldn't do anything visible. Try restarting X now.02:27
racquadwgrant: any idea?02:27
racquadi will drop irc.02:27
wgrantracquad: Good luck.02:27
racquadhang on a second02:28
wtgeewgrant: So if I try to activate a proprietary driver it gives the me Authenticate popup and that doesn't accept my password.02:28
wgrantwtgee: "doesn't accept"? It tells you that your password is incorrect?02:28
bsniderFFForever, what does iwconfig yield?02:28
wtgeewgrant: But that same Authenticate screen fails from everywhere, Restricted Drivers is just an example.02:28
FFForeverbsnider it works now :)02:28
FFForeveri just had to add ath5k to /etc/modules :)02:28
bsnidercool02:29
bsniderbut i think if you have the default hal it will autoload02:29
bsniderwelcome to open source atheros support02:29
wtgeewgrant: It shakes like I entered it wrong.  I don't believe there is actually a message. If I hit cancel or try to many times it is 'You are not authorized to perform this action'02:29
wgrantwtgee: What do the implicit policies for com.ubuntu.devicedriver in System->Administration->Authorizations say?02:29
FFForeverone more thing bsnider do u know how i can fix my boot up problem?, it hangs till i hold any key for a few secs... then after the sliding bar finishes everything works fine02:29
bsniderdoes it say it's doing a fsck or soemthing?02:30
wgrantwtgee: Also, ck-list-sessions02:30
wgrantbsnider: It's a known kernel bug.02:30
FFForeverbsnider nothing its before it says anything (when its just moving the bar back and forth before it gets to the actual loading...)02:31
bsnideri thought it was already fixed02:31
wtgeewgrant: For "Install or remove device drivers" it is Admin Authentication. For all the others in com.ubuntu.devicedriver it is a Yes or No02:31
FFForeverwgrant wouldn't that be a problem with grub though?02:31
bsniderno, not grub02:31
FFForevercan i install an older kernel?02:31
bsnidergrub has already handed it off to the kernel at that point02:31
wtgeewgrant: what part of ck-list-sessions do you want?02:31
FFForeverohhh02:31
wgrantwtgee: If there's only one session, just check that active=TRUE.02:32
wtgeewgrant: Yes, active is true02:32
bsniderFFForever, rc1 is like 5 days away. i'd deal with it until then02:32
wgrantwtgee: Try to grant yourself an explicit authorisation to install drivers.02:33
FFForeverwgrant i am looking at the bug reports i don't see anything like what i am having02:33
wtgeewgrant: It pops up the same Authenticate screen and responds the same02:33
racquadwgrant: I figured out what's going on!!02:33
bsniderFFForever, are you kidding me? it's all over the forums and has been for months02:34
FFForeverbsnider i am not looking in the forums just the bug reports02:34
racquadthe thing is: I have a 22" external monitor plugged on my laptop. when I turn my laptop monitor into a secondary display, Ubuntu asks if I want to turn on virtual desktop, because the size of the external and the laptop are different02:34
bsniderFFForever, it can be very hard to find bugs on laucnhpad unfortunately02:35
racquadwhen this function (virtual desktop) is enabled, the whole system turn slow02:35
wtgeewgrant: I recently signed up for the Ubuntero and in the process generated a new gpg key.  I think this is the first I have encountered the Authenitcate screen since then.02:35
FFForeverwhere is the 8.10 forum?02:35
wtgeewgrant: I don't know why that would affect my user password though but just letting you know02:35
bsniderFFForever,  http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=34602:36
wgrantwtgee: That can't affect your user password. You're quite sure it's correct?02:36
wtgeewgrant: yes, I have entered it a 1000 times.  Very slowly02:36
wgrantracquad: i945 has an accelerated size limit of 2048x2048, IIRC.02:36
wtgeewgrant: checked caps lock and all that02:36
racquadwgrant: I know. i'm using 1650x1050 on the external. but with virtual on, it turns slow. now, I'm not using it and works justs fine02:37
FFForeverdid u guys take out the startup sound?02:37
wgrantwtgee: Are there just the usual four @include lines in /etc/pam.d/polkit?02:37
wgrantracquad: You should only see the problem if virtual is above 2048x2048.02:38
racquadwgrant. it's not above02:38
wgrantFFForever: Not deliberately, but there are some bugs with libcanberra/PulseAudio interaction early in the session.02:38
wgrantracquad: What is it?02:38
wtgeewgrant: I don't know what the usualy is, but yeah, there are 4 lines besides the shebang kind of line02:39
wtgeewgrant: 4 @incluce02:39
wgrantwtgee: OK, that should be fine.02:39
wtgeewgrant: err @include02:39
bsnideri think luke already fixed that problem02:39
racquadwell, as I said, when this function (virtual) is enabled, the video turns slow02:39
racquadnow, this virtual desktop is disabled. and seems to be fine02:39
wtgeewgrant: It has been this way for maybe a day or two, not just from the most recent update.  I was waiting to see if it fixed itself.02:40
wgrantracquad: What is the size? I run with one under 2048x2048 fine...02:40
wgrantwtgee: I've no clue, sorry. You've rebooted?02:40
racquadwgrant: the laptop works on 1024x600. the external, 1650x105002:41
FFForeverhow come wifi + linux just never works otb?02:41
wgrantracquad: I don't particularly care about the screen resolutions. I need the Virtual line in xorg.conf.02:41
wgrantFFForever: It does in a lot of cases.02:41
wgrantAll three laptops here have worked fine for at least 18 months OOTB.02:41
wtgeewgrant: Yeah, like I said, it has been a couple of days so I have shutdown and so forth.  I've gotta go so I will check back later.  It doesn't totally interrupt everything but wanted to check if others had seen. I will play around wth it later but thanks for the help.02:41
dli_racquad, so, 1650x1650 virtual is enough02:41
wgrant(they're all with Intel chips)02:41
wgrantdli_: Depends on the direction in which the screens are aligned.02:42
FFForeveri guess buying the cheapest laptop is not the best idea on earth...02:42
racquadVirtual2704 105002:42
wgrantFFForever: Mine was cheap. I just chose one with Intel hardware because I had good experiences with it and the drivers are free.02:42
wgrantracquad: There is your problem.02:42
wgrant2704 >> 204802:42
dli_racquad, no, the driver won't do it02:42
FFForeverbtw nice new background pix what is it?, a warewolf that got shot in the jaw?02:43
racquadbecause it sums 1650 with 102402:43
wgrantFFForever: An Ibex...02:43
wgrantracquad: Because you have your screens set to next to each other, right.02:43
FFForeverif you say so... lol02:43
racquadwgrant, that's it. now, I have one under the other.02:43
wgrantracquad: That should work fine.02:44
wgrantracquad: We may have a workaround for this hardware limitation for Jaunty, but maybe not.02:44
racquadwgrant: thanks a lot02:44
racquadwgrant: that's  a limitation about the hardware or the driver?02:46
wgrantracquad: Hardware.02:46
wgrantGL surface size limitation, IIRC.02:47
tayohello02:47
racquadi see02:47
bsniderhe could turn off the smaller screen and just use the bigger one02:47
tayotesting.. dont mind me :)02:49

jtismehow do i mount an internal floppy   /dev/fd0  does not exist02:59
crashsystemsWow, it has been years since I've even touched a floppy. I'd expect it to auto mount like a cd or usb drive, but I don't know.03:01
bsniderit does automount03:01
jtismeno and /dev/fd is a directory with  0 1 2 and 255 links in it03:02

chrisw_i have a problem with preseeding a network installation of intrepid which may (?) be a bug03:10
crashsystemspreseeding?03:10
chrisw_i can't find a preseed option to address whether or not the initial user's home directory is encrypted or not03:10
crashsystemsis home dir encryption a new feature?03:11
chrisw_preseeding -- passing installer options over http during a network installation03:11
chrisw_yes, i think it's new to this release03:11
crashsystemsnice. I'm using the whole disk crypto, but that has been there for some time03:11
chrisw_(it's actually part of debconfig i think, but i don't understand the finer points yet)03:11
bsniderobviously you're using the alternate cd?03:11
crashsystemsyes03:12
crashsystemsand an insane passphrase03:12
bsniderthat issue might be a little bit beyond this chat room03:12
chrisw_if preseeding encrypted home isn't possible, i think that's a bug03:12
bsnidermgiht as well submit a bug report03:12
chrisw_it would prevent an otherwise completely automatic installation03:13
crashsystemshave you searched launchpad?03:13
chrisw_i've googled for a while03:13
chrisw_there doesn't seem to be much information specific to intrepid03:13
crashsystemsI'm not familiar with the automated installation topic03:13
chrisw_i also tried slugging through the installation scripts a bit03:13
chrisw_i'll submit a bug03:14
* chrisw_ checks the bug database first03:14
chrisw_oh right, that is what launchpad is03:14
bsniderif you submit a bug, it will at least precipitate a dialogue between you and whomever packages it03:14
chrisw_bug report away03:22
chrisw_hmm, apparently a kmitnick is notified of bug reports03:23

BlackGAI installed Ubuntu 8.10 Beta, and started the Distribution upgrade. Everything went fine with it, until it got the the Cleaning Up stage. It had to remove 2 packages. (linux-headers-2.6.27.4-generic and linux-headers-2.6.27.4) It has sat on removing linux-headers-2.6.27.4 for about 2 hours, and has not done anything. What should I do?03:49
donjr_KSI am using Kubuntu intrepid. And I cannot get it to burn an ISO immage to CD. It dosen't even pop up that it's found a blank CD when I put one in.03:49
smil3yBlackGA>  wait a minute, you mean you were on 8.04 and did a dist upgrade? or you were on 8.10 and did a dist upgrade?03:50
BlackGAI installed a clean 8.10, and then did the dist upgade/03:50
BlackGA.*03:50
smil3yBlackGA>  uh, no experience with that, you may have hosed it.  you dont dist upgrade if theres nothing to dist upgrade to03:51
smil3yBlackGA> what happens when you boot?03:52
wgrantsmil3y: That's incorrect. dist-upgrade is appropriate here.03:52
donjr_KSAny suggestion on how I can get intrepid to recognize my blank CD and allow me to burn an ISO?03:52
BlackGAWas told to do so, or else a certain package wouldn't work properly, while trying to run it.03:53
smil3yyeah i know, thats why I said "may have" and asked what happens when he boots..... not sure03:53
smil3yBlackGA> so what happens when you boot?03:53
BlackGAI have not rebooted. I have been waiting for the upgrade to finish up.03:54
smil3yBlackGA> you can always reinstall 27.4, im not using it anyway, cant get wireless to work reliably, i use .2403:54
bertodseracan anyone point me to a channel where I can get assistance for me to add a layout to X?03:55
wgrantbertodsera: "layout"?03:55
BlackGAIs it ok to cancel the Upgrade process while it's trying to remove it?03:56
bertodserakeyboard layout03:56
bertodseraa keyboard for a language that is still missing in the distro03:56
bertodseraI can start the translation, but I need a keyboard for that03:56
smil3yBlackGA> if it was me i would, i live fixing shit but im not recommending it to you03:58
smil3yBlackGA>  your rpobably going to be in for a ton of dependency issues if you do03:58
unfohi all, could you please tell me the entire contents of the file "/etc/issue" on Intrepid03:59
donjr_KSno help for burning an ISO?03:59
wgrantBlackGA: As long as you're not upgrading from another release, cancelling and retrying should be fine.04:00
bsniderunfo, ubuntu intrepid (development branch) \n \l04:00
smil3ydonjr_KS>  i dont know, havent tried to burn anything, what happens when you insert a blank cd? does it mount?04:00
donjr_KSsmil3y no, it doesn't show in dolphin at all, no pop up, nothing.  But any other CD reads fine.04:01
bsniderunfo, that's the funniest question. you want to know the contents of a file that has one line.04:02
smil3yunfo>  this is what I have "Ubuntu intrepid (development branch) \n \l"04:02
smil3ydonjr_KS>  well, i would test it too, but my dvd drive is busted04:03
donjr_KSwell crud.04:03
smil3ydonjr_KS>  you try opening k3b? see if it shows there?04:03
donjr_KSsmil3y thanks for the reply at least.04:03
donjr_KSsmil3y not yet, let me find it04:03
smil3yDon_Miguel>  try a different cd? maybe not a r/w?04:04
crashsystemsyou could boot from a usb drive04:04
donjr_KSthese are burnable. I have k3b open now, we'll see if it works out.04:04
donjr_KSI don't have a flash drive atm04:05
crashsystemsah, ok04:05
smil3ydonjr_KS>  maybe a bug in dolphin right now,04:05
BlackGADon, does the blank CD show up when you attempt to burn a file with CD/DVD Creator?04:05
donjr_KSk3b is working thus far..I tried earlier with cdrecord from console04:06
larson9999are there still some kinds to work out with policy kit?  seems every time i install hardy or ibex the unlock is greyed out on at least a few things.04:06
larson9999s/kinds/kinks04:06
smil3ydonjr_KS>  well thats definately odd04:06
donjr_KSWe'll see if it works out properly, but so far it appears to be.  CD rom just activated and it nows says it's writing to disk.  Thanks a ton for the info, I wasn't sure k3b would do what the console wouldn't thought maybe I was missing something04:08
crashsystemsSpeaking of CD burning, it has always seemed to me that Brasero is rather slow. Has anyone else noticed this?04:09
unfobsnider, smil3y, thanks.04:09
unfoall : also : when you log in in text mode (Ctrl+Alt+F1) does Intrepid tell you a web site you can go to for help?  what is the entire line telling you how to get help?04:09

unfocrashsystems: no, i am filing a bug report "[PATCH] Tell users how to undo accidental Ctrl+Alt+F1 presses by adding a line to /etc/issue"04:15
dr_willisheh heh.. accidental.04:16
dr_willis:)04:16
crashsystemsis accidental Ctrl+Alt+F1 a common thing?04:16
dr_willisdont forget to mention about .hushlogin to make all the issue messages and stuff go away04:16
unfocrashsystems: it happens.04:16
unfodr_willis: what is .hushlogin?04:16
Hobbseecrashsystems: wouldn't have thoguht so - ctrl+alt+backspace may be more common..04:16
dr_willisIt makes for a quiet login. :)04:16
unfoHobbsee: I convinced dstone to disable ctrl+alt+backspace by default in the newest Xorg (coming soon).04:17
crashsystemsgrr, I love ctrl+alt+backspace04:17
larson9999for the past few days about every other boot here was met with a constant beeping.  that was nice04:17
unfoHobbsee: accidental ctrl+alt+backspace is alarmingly common04:17
Hobbseeunfo: ouch?04:17
dr_willisTo turn off the banner in Unix, create a special file in your login directory called .hushlogin.04:17
unfoHobbsee: what do you mean "ouch"04:17
dr_willis.hushlogin is OLD skool :)04:17
unfodr_willis: why would most people want to turn off the banner?04:18
larson9999you can't get rid of ctl+alt_backspace.04:18
wgrantThat was an interesting decision on daniels' part. I was very surprised when I first saw it.04:18
bsniderand how do you restart the x server then?04:18
dr_willisunfo,  becuase the banner is useless info for the most part.04:18
dr_willisi dont need to see the same banner in each ssh session04:18
wgrantbsnider: Gracefully.04:18
crashsystemsrandom jokes would be much better04:18
dr_willisand dont get me started on prople that put 'fortune' in their .bashrc :)04:18
larson9999my son already has muscle memory for ctl+alt+backspace04:18
larson9999dr_willis, i put fortune in all my team's .profile at work :)04:19
dr_willisI have encounted issues in the past with some of the login output , when scripting remote things.. But thats a bit rare.04:19
* dr_willis pummles larson9999 with 'fortune | cowsay'04:19
unfolol04:19
dr_willislarson9999,  i noticed that the Ubuntu-linux-Mint variant does that by default.. THEN they made a special GUI tool that lets you disable it.. its SOO critial!04:20
crashsystemslol, I've never seen fortune!04:20
wgrantdr_willis: It does not have Ubuntu in its name.04:20
dr_williswgrant,  i know..04:20
unfoOT : How does this sound?  "Ubuntu intrepid (development branch) 8.10 tty1"04:21
unfo"This is text mode ttyX. If you got here by pushing Ctrl+Alt+F#, then push Ctrl+Alt+F7 to return to graphics mode. Or see http://help.ubuntu.com/"04:21
dr_willisunfo,  actually i think you just need alt-f7 or ctrl-f7 to get back04:21
bsniderthat's obviously a good idea. disabling ctrl-alt-backspace isn't04:21
crashsystemsrather, "or see w3m http://help.ubuntu.com"04:21
Dalem50Hello :D04:21
dr_willisunfo,  ALSO -  if you have more then 1 X session going - it could be F8 of F9 :) or all 304:22
larson9999dr_willis, we just started using unix at work and for some dumb reason they didn't chmod the home areas very smartly so we could edit each other's .profiles.   a made a fake 'automated checker' it simulated a check of resources and said they're home area was too big and automatically deleted files.  scrolling the names one by one as they were being deleted.04:22
crashsystemsand the user who accidently went to tty1 also has several x sessions04:22
Dalem50Wait, you mean by switching between console and GUI?04:22
larson9999within a day they fixed that :)04:22
wgrantbsnider: I never have to use Ctrl+Alt+Backspace. I always either log out gracefully or convince X to hardlock my machine.04:22
dr_willislarson9999,  :) a simple "yes > .bigfile &" in the .bashrc is so amuseing also.... slowlys fills up their quota04:23
Dalem50Speaking of which, does anyone know how to install a desktop on Ubuntu Server Edition?04:23
bsniderwgrant, you get hard lockups do you? you must be running an ati driver04:23
dr_willisDalem50,  install the ubuntu-desktop package is one way04:23
Dalem50Wait, I heard of Xbuntu, how do you install that desktop?04:23
wgrantbsnider: No, -intel. Just I hack the drivers and it ends up segfaulting, and segfaulting with Composite on -intel is *bad*.04:23
wgrantDalem50: sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop04:24
dr_willisDalem50,  xubuntu-desktop for xubuntu04:24
Dalem50Thanks wgrant :D04:24
dr_willisI wonder if the fluxbox/fluxbuntu guys ever made a fluxbuntu-desktop package04:24
bsniderwgrant, why would you need to hack an excellent driver like the intel driver?04:24
zyrorlintel wireless drivers are far from excellent:(04:24
wgrantzyrorl: ipw2200 works excellently for me.04:25
crashsystemswith 8.10, I can do dual monitors for the first time04:25
Dalem50Does anyone know how to get RTL8187B working?04:25
larson9999dr_willis, yeah.  the lasting fun part of that is one of the people i played that prank on was an admin.  probably the reason they weren't chmoded in the first place.04:25
zyrorliwl4965 doesnt04:25
Dalem50It's a wireless card.04:25
wgrantbsnider: I don't. I hack other bits of X and the -synaptics driver.04:25
bsniderzyrorl, it's a great driver, assuming you don't want your wifi to work04:25
wgrantAnd -intel occasionally, but not as often.04:25
zyrorlbsnider - i guess...04:26
thompaIm having one problem. Themes don't stay after reboot04:26
unfocrashsystems: re w3m: good idea. fixed.04:27
Dalem50thompa: Is this on 8.10?04:27
bsniderThomasD, maybe you don't have write permission to your own home directory04:27
crashsystems@unfo honestly, that was a bit of a joke, but if you find it helpful, then that makes me happy04:27
thompaDalem50: yes04:27
unfocrashsystems: I think it's a good idea04:28
Dalem50thompa: Sorry, I can't really help with that. I didn't try 8.10 out because I figured it wouldn't be very compatible with my computer.04:28
thompaDalem50: I found something on forum while back04:28
Dalem50thompa:What's that xD04:28
thompaDalem50: whats your computer04:29
dli_scim stops working for me:(04:29
Dalem50Thompa: It's a really cheap Toshiba Computer. I forgot the exact model number04:29
crashsystemsI saw in the release notes for the current kernel that there is now support for ext4, yet I do not see it as an option in gparted04:29
unfocrashsystems: just use ext3.  it works fine.04:30
unfo:)04:30
crashsystemsI'm using reiserfs currently04:30
thompaDalem50: well its working fine here on a few systems all laptops04:30
zyrorli used reiser until recently when i couldn't recover my partition:(04:30
crashsystemsbut doesn't ext4 have better performance?04:31
Dalem50tompa: Mine has a X1200 ATI graphics card. I don't think highly on compatibility, but I have faith :D04:31
thompabut the theme issue I cant figure out. could it be compiz?04:31
Dalem50thompa: Not likely04:31
thompaDalem50: I had a problem with ati also04:31
Dalem50Thompa: Unless you're running Compiz04:31
Dalem50Thompa: Try turning Compiz off and changing the theme.04:31
thompaDalem50: well i am. I mean maybe cause ots updated so much.. compiz04:32
steve_crashsystems>  is reiser even maintained anymore?04:32
thompaDalem50: good idea04:32
Dalem50Thompa: I think you'd have to do some experimenting with your case.04:32
crashsystemsI also see reiser4 as an option, but it is grayed out04:32
crashsystems@steve_ it is04:32
crashsystemsthere is talk of changing it's name04:32
steve_crashsystems>  yeah., thats probably a good idea04:32
crashsystemsmkfs.ext4 currently exists on my system though04:33
crashsystemsbut mkfs.reiserfs4 does not04:33
crashsystemsthis is rather strange04:33
bsniderthat filfesystem is notoriously unstable04:34

crashsystemsI've got it on my encrypted hd currently04:34
bsniderno, the 4th version of it04:35
thompaanyone know what the deafualt theme is supposed to be04:35
crashsystemsah, that might explain it04:35
nathan_included in the latest kernel I mean04:35
=== steve_ is now known as smil3y
crashsystemsperhaps we could have a file system war in here...04:35
bsniderxfs is currently the best04:36
thompanathan_: I had  manually install them04:36
bsniderbtrfs will eventually be04:36
crashsystems@bsnider what makes you think that? also, would it go well inside encrypted lvm?04:36
thompathompa: madwifi that is04:36
crashsystems(reffering to xfs)04:36
nathan_right I've looked into mad wifi and will probably go that route04:37
bsniderit's fast and efficient. it uses extents04:37
nathan_but was hoping to have a lazy way out... :)04:37

crashsystemsI like wubi. its great for noobs04:45
nathan_hey, I resemble that remark.04:46
pwnguinmy first linux install resembled wubi in 199804:47
crashsystemswhat do you mean pwnguin?04:47
pwnguinwubi installs to an existing windows filesystem04:47
crashsystemsyep04:48
bsniderwubi has been improved. now, it not only destroys your windows installation. it now prevents you from ever installing windows on that machine again. sort of like salting the earth.04:48
crashsystemswhy do you say it destroys windows?04:48
pwnguinin 98 someone showed me a linux distro based on zipslack04:48

pwnguini know mine does. wired into the sound card04:50
dr_willisI imagine tht will change here in the next few years.. so they can save a few $$$04:51
bsniderthat's what i wish wubi did.04:51
nathan_got one.. never use it.04:51
crashsystemsis there any useful applications of a modem other than dialup?04:51
nathan_mmm security systems.04:52
pwnguinyou don't nessecarily need the phone system04:52
nathan_I use one to dial into and modify security and fire alarm programming04:52

nathan_Oops yeah what pwnguin said05:03
pwnguinis alsamixer any different than the gnome-audio thing?05:04
nathan_mmm... I think so.05:05
dr_williscontrolls the same things but different look/feel05:05
dr_willisBut the gnome thing MAY be doing Pulse AUdio05:05
dr_willisNot sure about that... I just remberd Pulse. heh.05:05
pwnguinif its really controlling the same thing then i'd just skip suggesting alsamixer05:06
nathan_I had trouble with an acer laptop a year or two ago and found that all I needed to do was adjust "main" setting In alsamixer05:06
dr_willisive noticed some of the alsamixer tools have different sliders/controlls for someof my machines05:06
dr_willisand ive seen a few cases where gnome mixer had voulme up.. but it was actuallymuted.. alsamixer was able to unmute things05:06
secret9011My volume control buttons stopped working in Gnome even though the volume control in the applet panel still works.  When I press on the buttons they act as if it's working but the volume doesn't change.05:09
nathan_right. when I first opened it up it was muted. then after I unmuted  it I still had to turn it up, because if it was set to a medium range no matter what I set the audio settings to it wouldn't go past a certain volume.05:09
bigfoxThat audio problem happened to me.  The default audio device and the mixer device got changed to another audio device I had connected.05:11
secret9011bigfox: how did you fix it?05:11

TychoQuadHi, I'm having a really strange and annoying problem. My computer is randomly restarting all the time. there appears to be no correlation between when it happens and what I am doing. I have run every hardware test i can think of, I can reproduce it on hardy fully updated and ibex (livecd included). i haven't been able to reproduce on windows, hardy live cd or without running a window manager06:42
TychoQuadoh, and nothing is showing up in the logs06:44

Polygon89is it the same package? im being told to install it to compile a certain program07:23

wgrantg77 is really old and it finally got killed in Intrepid.07:24
Polygon89ok07:25

TychoQuadokay, I may have narrowed my problem down to a component of Gnome, possibly nautilus07:38
hyperairTychoQuad: i don't think nautilus can restart your system. by restarting what dyou mean? dump you back in the login screen, or a similar effect to hitting the restart button?07:41
TychoQuadrestart button. and i agree, but it's one of the only thing running in every case07:43
hyperairhmmm07:44
TychoQuadI installed and am currently running kubuntu on top so far without incident. I previously tried icewm which used nautilus for the file manager and it happened there too07:47

Polygon89wgrant, i think ive seen your name on the forums as a ubuntu dev...where would be the best place to go for help on how to do a kernel bisect? i apparantly need to do one to figure out which revision totally borked support for a specific laptop chipset but i have no idea how to do one07:54
TychoQuadi'm not currently running hardy, i upgraded to ibex to hopefully fix the problem.07:54
wgrantPolygon89: I may be an Ubuntu dev, but that doesn't mean I know *everything*. The kernel is one of my deliberate blind patches.07:55
TychoQuadthe version in ibex is 1:2.24.0-0ubuntu207:55
Polygon89wgrant, you mean ubuntu devs arnt gods? you just destroyed my perception on life itself. Lol, ok ill ask around07:56
drakemanf07:56
wgrantPolygon89: Haha. Good luck.07:56
drakemanhello, people, hey, just want to say hello to all, recently i installed my ubuntu, so far is great! i love it! i tried mandriva and fedora, but now i feel more comfortable with ubuntu07:57
wgrantdrakeman: That's great to hear! We do our best to make the experience excellent.07:58
Hobbseewgrant: oh dear.  you're noticed on the forums.07:59
drakemanyou welcome wgrant, im newbie, but every distro i tried before was redhat based, but i think i feel better with debian based07:59
drakemanhehe07:59
wgrantHobbsee: I've only a little over half of your post count, IIRC.07:59
drakemandont know why, but i feel better, this is my third day with ubuntu..07:59
Hobbseewgrant: that's scary..08:00
edgyisn't ubuntu final coming in the coming days? how come it's still beta? when would we have the RC's?08:06
wgrantedgy: Ubuntu 8.10 will be released on 2008/10/30.08:07
wgrantUbuntu 8.10 Release Candidate will be released on 2008/10/23, I believe.08:07
SebastianStill only 11 days before final.08:07
edgymy main issue now is I have to applets for network connection one coming from kde and the other from gnome and the one from gnome prevents the one from kde from working, is it only me?08:09
edgys/to/two08:09
TychoQuadanyone have any idea why nautilus could be resetting my computer?08:09
wgrantTychoQuad: Due to a kernel bug.08:10
Polygon89hmm. one more thing befor ei head off to bed, where did the suspend and hibernate buttons go?08:11
TychoQuadreally? any idea if it's going to be fixed any time soon?08:11
wgrantTychoQuad: I didn't know it existed until you mentioned it.08:11
wgrantBut if something is causing your computer to reset, it's very probably somebody pushing the reset button, Alt+SysRq+B, or a kernel bug.08:11
TychoQuadokay, i don't really like the idea of running kde forever, any way i could work around this?08:13
alluphow can i downgrade back to hardy?08:14
wgrantallup: You cannot, unless you reinstall.08:14
allup:(08:14
wgrantallup: Why do you wish to?08:14

allupleafes keyboard light flashing and nothing happens on screen08:15
allupthen i have to shut down my computer and then next time i come i have to restart it before i can use kubuntu :P08:16
wgrantallup: That would be a kernel panic. Have you tried to boot an older kenrel?08:16
allupwgrand dunno even how to do that08:16
wgrantallup: You should have a kernel named like 2.6.24 in your boot menu, if you've upgraded from hardy.08:17
TychoQuadwgrant, i tried that as well, no luck08:17
allupno theres only inderpid 4 times and xp professional08:17

TychoQuadsynaptic08:23
allupany way from terminal?08:23
TychoQuadsudo apt-get install firefox08:23
drakemanHey another think i love of ubuntu is that there is a lot of help in internet, thats a good think for the newbies like me!08:23
wgrantPolygon89: It's not there because it's probably failing to interact properly with gdm. It's there for me sometimes but not others.08:26
alluptychoQuad: from what i see in terminal id say that this is trying to install gnome more then firefox!...08:27
Polygon89wgrant, hmm. im tired, ill go hunt down to see if there is a bug report for this already. thanks again, goodnight08:27
drakemanHey, little dumb question, hehee, when i use the command, wget, for example if i put wget www.google.com from command line, i got a message like html file saved, but i dont know the location of the saved html?08:27
wgrantdrakeman: You'll see line like 2008-10-19 18:27:56 (982 KB/s) - `index.html' saved [5644]08:28
wgrant'index.html' is the file.08:28
drakemanyes, i know, but it saves the file08:28
drakemanbut where?08:28
TychoQuadallup, firefox requires some gnome components08:28

wgrantIt's a package.08:31
wgrantYou don't actually need to remove KDE4...08:31
allupbut wouldn't it eate memory  if its under gnome?08:31
wgrantOnly if it's running.08:31
wgrantWhich it won't be, if you start GNOME instead.08:32
allupbut i would liketo remove it fully so that it's impossible that it would start runnig unless i reinstall il08:32

TychoQuadcan dolphin work as gnome's desktop?08:34
alluphow can i made my kubuntu to ubuntu whit out burning ubuntu on disc?08:34
crdlbTychoQuad: afaik, dolphin doesn't provide a desktop, but you could use it as a file manager08:35
crdlbnot sure why you'd want to though; nautilus and dolphin are rather similar ...08:35
TychoQuadyes, but nautilus is killing my computer, so i need to replace it08:35
drakemani hate nautilus08:36
drakemanhehe08:36
alluphmm do you think  apt-get install ubuntu could work?08:36
crdlbTychoQuad: how did you determine that nautilus is 'killing' your computer?08:36
crdlballup: ubuntu-desktop08:36
tdawgedogghow do i update from 8.04 to 8.10 beta...it says push alt+f2 which brings up run application then type update-manager-d but its not working08:37
allupcrdlb: does it install ubuntu so well that when i start up there reads ubuntu instead of kubuntu?08:37
TychoQuadcrdlb, because after much trial and error, i have discovered that my computer will reset itself after a random interval if nautilus is running08:37
crdlballup: iirc, it will ask if you want to change the bootsplash08:38
crdlbor maybe it does it automatically; in any case, it's definitely possible to do08:39
allupok i'll give it a try08:39
crdlbtdawgedogg: did you omit the space before '-d' when you ran it? it should be 'update-manager -d'08:39
allupdoes it remove kubuntus papages and  recover them whit ubuntus?08:39
tdawgedoggcrdld: yeah i did08:40
allupappereantly it only adds more stuff here and removes nothing08:40
crdlballup: nothing will be uninstalled, but unless you are very low on HDD space, that doesn't matter08:40
tdawgedogghey if im upgrading to the beta right now....as soon as a stable release comes out will the packages to fix it come up on the update manager?08:41
allupcrdlb: i want that every thing will be unsinstalled asnd it would be like installing ubuntu on kubuntu same time as removing kububntu  fully08:41
crdlb!final | tdawgedogg08:41
ubottutdawgedogg: If you installed a Alpha/Beta/RC version of Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) and have been keeping it up to date, then you are already running the latest version of Intrepid. To make sure, type « sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade » in a console.08:41
crdlb(you will be kept up to date)08:42
tdawgedoggso whats the whole deal with the release of it...the stable version...are they just changing the files in the iso so there all stable08:42
tdawgedoggas long as i keep up to date with all the updates then im good?08:42
drakemanhey , thanks for all people! good night! Thanks to all to make part of this great community and your great inconditional support!!!!! Thanks to promote a good M$ alternative..... mm not a good a better alternative.... like i said before, my third day with ubuntu and i didnt miss Vist@ hehehehe08:42
drakemangood night guys!08:42
alluphey would it work if i write sudo apt-get dist-upgrade and version number of hardy ? to get this downgrade back to hardy?08:43
crdlbtdawgedogg: only packages that are actually changed will be updated08:43
drakemanthanks for all wgrant!08:43
crdlballup: that is completely unsupported, and probably wouldn't work without lots of manual effort08:43
allupcrdlb: :P08:43
alluphow can i uninstall kde 4 and leafe whit only terminal so i could  install ubuntu whit all its pagages so that for example default browser would be firefox and not konquerror08:44
crdlb...08:45
crdlbif you boot into the gnome session, it will _not_ matter whether kde is installed08:45
allupbut its therre! isn't it! and if its on my hard disc it will take some memory to keep it there! and i don't want that theres some kde that i will never use stored for nothing!08:46
wgrantallup: Try GNOME for a while and work out if you like it first.08:46
wgrantIf you do want to move permanently, there are ways to remove KDE.08:46
alluphow?08:47
wgrantRemove some KDE libs and watch everything cascade. And then work out what is autoremovable.08:47
allup...understanded les then half :P08:47
wgrantThen don't bother. It's only a few hundred megabytes, and you can always remove it later when you're more skilled and running out of space.08:48
allup...iam runnig out of space right now!08:48
allupi don't have even 500mb room lefth08:49
wgrantAh. That's one small partition.08:49
crdlbwow, what size is the hard drive?08:49
wgrantapt-get remove kubuntu-desktop, apt-get autoremove, I guess.08:49

* crdlb hopes that doesn't remove too much ...08:49
wgrantcrdlb: You can never remove too much KDE.08:50

tab_shiftallup: apt-get remove kde08:52
wgrantallup: That's why I advised 'apt-get autoremove' afterwards.08:52

wgrantTychoQuad: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/hardy/+source/linux might be useful.09:18
wgrantYou need linux-image, probably linux-ubuntu-modules, maybe linux-restricted-modules.09:18
TychoQuadokay, going from source to usable, screw that. can i remove nautilus without breaking ibex's ubuntu-desktop?09:21
wgrantTychoQuad: Are you quite sure it's nautilus?09:23
wgrantTychoQuad: It's probably a better idea to get the bug fixed...09:23
maek0elmargol, oh okay ... I suppose theres a few bug fixes that would be good09:24
TychoQuadi agree, if we can do that, i will be immensely happy, but since i have no way of narrowing this down furthur, it's not going to be fixed via any report i make09:24
vertisvashello, I have a quick question. I have tried the rtl8187.ko driver for a 8189 usb wireless device, and it works fine but it only allows me access to channels 1-10, is there a way to override domains on wireless drivers? or a global way to set domains?09:26

tab_shiftTychoQuad: could you post that in #kde , we are too tired to flame you ;-)09:41
maek0so what are ppl here going to do ... wipe their drives and install the Ibex clean or upgrade from Hardy ??09:42
maek0... when the Ibex comes out09:42
TychoQuadright now i'm tempted to go back to hardy and turn off all updates09:43

elmargolTychoQuad: hardy is a LTS. so why not keep using it if you like it.09:51
TychoQuadbecause the crash happens there too when fully updated09:52
TychoQuadbelieve me, i would like nothing better than to have this issue resolved, but so far, all I've had is "it can't be nautilus" and "must be a hardware problem" more recently i have better help, but still nothing that would allow me to even approach solving this issue09:55

malnilionI'm having issues with switching to a guest user.  I click Guest Session from the fast-user-switching applet and the screen goes white as if it were opening a new X session or something and then it flashes back to the lock screen asking for my password to get back into my user session10:09
elmargolTychoQuad: do you have a bugreport about it? I did not follow the problem10:09
vertisvasnight10:11
TychoQuadno, i haven't nailed down enough to file a bug report. what happens is: my computer will randomly restart as if i hit the reset switch. it has nothing to do with whatever i'm doing, i can reproduce it in a fully up to date hardy, icewm running nautilus and the latest ibex (including the ibex livecd) i haven't been able to reproduce it in windows, hardy live cd, kubuntu ibex or icewm running pcmanfm10:13
elmargolTychoQuad: are you using nvidia or ati closed source drivers?10:13
elmargolTychoQuad: do you use composite?10:14
toomaianyone got a lenovo thinpad x200 with x4500 graphics running with intrepid (or hardy)? It runs, but it looks a tad blurry (its only 1024x768, could be better)10:14
TychoQuadi have reproduced the crash with both of those switched off10:14
elmargolTychoQuad: if you ask me it is hardware related. if it is software related the system hangs and does not reboot10:15
elmargolmaybe overheating10:15
TychoQuadi've been over this. if it was hardware related, i would be able to reproduce it in windows. i've been able to run for days in windows without a problem running any 3d software i like. i can't last 5 minutes in ibex and my temperature monitors in both operating systems show no overheating10:17
elmargolTychoQuad: My nvidia GPU crashes if i use linux. works perfect under windows.10:17
malnilionAh, disregard my problem, I figured it out :D10:17
TychoQuaddoes it still crash if you don't run the nvidia drivers?10:18
malnilionI had previously created a "guest" user account on my laptop that was interfering with the creation of the guest session10:18
elmargolTychoQuad: no the problem is related to the nividia powermixer. somehow the driver clocks the memory wrong10:18
elmargolTychoQuad: i have clocked the GPU and memory to 100mhz now... no crash for 2 days10:20
elmargol+ the GPU is about 10°C cooler and the battery lasts longer :D10:20
TychoQuadso your problem does still happen when you don't run nvidia's drivers?10:22
elmargolTychoQuad: well if I manually clock the GPU and use the free drivers the GPU crashes too10:22
elmargolIf i just use the free drivers it works just perfekt.10:23
elmargolIn order to save power and to use the fan less. Nvidia clocks the GPU down. and there has to be a bug10:23
TychoQuadplease just answer the question. if you have no driver configured, and the graphics card is displaying with the kernel's built in basic display driver, can you reproduce the crash?10:25
elmargolTychoQuad: you mean nv or vesa?10:25
TychoQuadvesa10:27
elmargolTychoQuad: vesa works fine10:27
TychoQuadright, well I'm saying i can reproduce the crash in vesa10:27

Kajoverhey.. i downloaded the ubuntu 8.10 beta but the wlan doesnt work (macbook pro). Is there a newer ubuntu than the beta?15:20
wtgeeKajover: Did you check the restricted drivers? They will  not be enabled by defalt15:21
Kajoveri am new the linux.. no15:21
Kajoverwhy shouldnt wlan drivers be enabled by default and its a macbook.. not the only one with this issue15:22
wtgeeKajover: System->Administration->Hardware Drivers15:22
wtgeeKajover: They are not Free (as in speech) so they are not enabled.15:22
Kajoverand how do i enable them?.. im not on ubuntu right now.. is it self explaining when i see it15:23
wtgeeKajover: It should be pretty straightforward once you are there...you will see any drivers that are available but not turned on by default and you just hit 'Activate'15:24
Kajoverok15:24
blip99hi all, is it recommended to use 8.10 Beta and then update to the final when it comes out ?  or do people usually do a clean install ?   thanks15:24
Kajoveris there anything newer than the beta?15:24
Kajoverbecause ill download it right now15:24
Kajoveror is the stable 8.04 release enough?15:25
wtgeeKajover: No, I think only Beta 1 is out.  It will also tell you when any new updates are available and that will bring you up to speed15:25
kulighthttp://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ports/daily/current/15:26
Kajoverso.. i should install the 8.10 beta and check if the drivers are enabled15:26
Kajoverthank you..15:26
Kajoverand after installing this build15:26
wtgeeKajover: You should be able to test it with the livecd without actually installing.15:26
Kajoverwill it update automatically and only update stable updates afterwards15:27
Kajoveroh k15:27
danbh_intrepidblip99: the beta is for testing purposes.     I personally plan to wipe, and do a clean install when it comes out, or maybe just upgrade my hardy install.  I dunno.  The release candidate is right around the corner.  I recommend you wait for that15:27
wtgeeKajover: The drivers will not ever be enabled by default on any version of Ubuntu.15:27
Kajoverok thank you15:27
wtgeeblip99: You shouldn't have to do a clean install (I asked this last week) but I sort of plan to anyway.15:28
blip99thanks wtgee15:28
Kajoverwould be great if ubuntu would check what hardware your system has and enable everything it needs15:28
wtgeeKajover: Again, it is a legal issue.  It is not a technical issue.  It should actually prompt you that non-free drivers are available but it is never going to do it by default.15:29
Kajoveroh sorry didnt read that15:29
Kajoverjust one more thing.. which build is for me?15:30
Kajoverthe link displays only alternate install cds15:30
wtgeeKajover: FYI, you will find the same issue with mp3s and dvds.  They are not going to be playable by default but they should be easily enabled.15:30

blip99can i get *most of* the power and coolness of KDE4 which comes on 8.10... by simply installing packages on 8.04 ? or there is more updated things with kde in 8.10 ?15:33
charlie-tcavb6admin15:33
* charlie-tca sorry, wrong keyboard15:34
danbh_intrepidblip99: why not just install 8.10?15:34
wtgeeKajover: Yes, it is.  Note that 64bit is always a little behind 32 bit.  I am running the 64 bit now but once the release comes out I am probably switching to 32bit just because it makes some things a little smoother and there is not a huge performance difference at this point.15:34
minimecKajover: 64 is for amd64. You will have dome problems with ati fglrx dirvers and flash player..., as there are no 64 versions for some software.15:34
Kajoverits just confusing because the intel x86 version is for "newer Apple Macintosh systems based on Intel processors", but the amd64 version is for Core 2 architecture15:35
blip99danbh_intrepid: i want to...the 8.10 Beta is geat :)       but i'm developing a software system in C/C++/Java and other which is targeted to run on a specific 8.04 machine... so i need my development machine to run 8.04 too for max compatiblity15:35
Kajoverok.. so the x86 edition thank you15:35
wtgeeKajover: I would probably recommend just doing the 32 bit.15:35
danbh_intrepidblip99: but I think the answer is that, while you can do whatever you want with your computer, there is no testing of installing packages like that.  Nor will there be fixes.   Er, there are fixes, but those fixes are included with the rest of 8.10.  See, if you upgrade every single package in 8.04, that IS 8.1015:35
Kajoverthank you very much.. im installing cu15:36
danbh_intrepidblip99: there is already an unofficial release of kde4 for 8.04 on the kubuntu website, but I have no idea if it works that well.15:37
blip99danbh_intrepid: ye thats a community remix. i can't risk it :)15:37
danbh_intrepidblip99: well, installing 8.10 packages on 8.04 is even more risky.  Thats your own personal remix, so to speak15:39
blip99danbh_intrepid: hmmm,  so you're saying the 8.04 repos don't have KDE4 ?  or you mean the libraries underneath are meant for 8.10 ?   so installing kde4 on 8.04 will be almost like a distro upgrade .... hmmm,  i'm thinking of just sticking to kde3 then15:40

cwillujemark, rhythmbox or pulseaudio?15:54
jemarkcwillu: with me... the same confugration and the same rhythmbox version15:54
cwilluif it's the rhythmbox process, it's probably not pulseaudio at fault15:54
jemarkcwillu: in intrepid... pulseaudio is froced with rhythmbox15:55
cwillujemark, yes, but that doesn't mean it's pulseaudio15:55
cwillupulseaudio's fault, rather15:55

cwillusorry?  couldn't parse that15:56
jemarkcwillu: rhythmbox is using about 15% in intrepid versus 1% in hardy... that's the buttomline... i don't care if it is pulseaudio's fault or it is the fact that pulseaudio is forced on intrepid. the fact is that a simple mp3 file gives a high cpu usage...15:59

cwillujemark, okay, can you set it to pulseaudio, restart rhythmbox and test again?16:09
cwillujemark, "sorry, I couldn't parse that" == I didn't understand what you said that time16:09
jemarkcwillu: only Intrepid  FORCES pulseaudio... even if you disable the process in the "session"16:10
* cwillu counts to ten16:10
* cwillu takes a deep breath16:10
cwillujemark, if gstreamer is set to alsa, you're going through a compatability layer16:10
jemarkcwillu: at System - Preferences...16:10
cwillujemark, please set it to pulseaudio, and retest16:11
jemarkcwillu: the fact is that in Hardy with the same version of Rhythmbox (via a ppa) the cpu usage is 1% an in Intrepid the cpu usage is 15%... i don't mind what layers are being used...16:12
cwillujemark, hardy _doesn't_ use an alsa compatability layer (which was the cause of alot of other applications not working properly.  Flash, skype, sdl apps, etc)16:12
cwilluso under intrepid, you shouldn't be using 'alsa' in gstreamer-properties, because that's actually just an inefficient way of running pulseaudio16:13
cwilluso again, please set it, restart rhythmbox, and retest16:14
jemarkcwillu: so, in Hardy it's not a layer?16:14
cwillujemark, nope.  Broke tonnes of stuff too because of that (alsa and pulseaudio basically fighting over the audio device)16:15
cwilluintrepid's doing pulseaudio right (well, more right than they did the last time :p)16:15
cwillubut it does mean that workarounds from intrepid can cause some grief16:16
jemarkcwillu: so, why do you keep alsa in Intrepid... remove alsa and don't force Pulseaudio when you want to use alsa...16:16
cwillujemark, 'alsa' is several things16:16
cwillujemark, it's the kernel audio drivers (how pulseaudio actually makes sound), and it's an api used by lots of applications16:16
=== Oric_ is now known as Oric
jemarkcwilluL are probably also several things.. plugins, etc...16:16
cwillujemark, the same way as 'oss' is both a kernel audio system, and an api used by lots of old programs16:16
sivel?16:17
cwillujemark, well, plugins falls under a different category16:17
cwillubut anyways, the 'alsa-as-api' in intrepid is actually compatability layer over pulseaudio, so that apps that only know how to use alsa (and can't be updated) will still work16:17
cwilluincluding skype, flash, and so on16:18
jemarkcwillu: well, at least that gives you a choice... Intrepid forces Rhythmbox to use Pulseaudio, right? In Hardy, you can still choose to use alsa...16:18
cwillujemark, it's a false choice16:18
cwilluit doesn't make sense to have them coexist16:18
cwillubut again, can you please set gstreamer-properties to pulseaudio, and retest rhythmbox?16:19
cwilluplease?16:19
cwillufor me?16:19
ByteJuggler@charlie-tca (or anyone who can help) ok, so I'm trying to make sure I'm going to report apparent issues with the migration assistant in the Intrepid beta against the right project on launchpad -- there's the "migration assistant" *project* which is just a placeholder and eventually points to the Debian bug tracker, and then there's the "migration-assistant" *source package* in the Ubuntu project (I've not been able to find an "ubuntu-16:19
jemarkcwillu: that's why I still use alsa since programs that I use like skype use alsa.. otherwise you get more cpu usage bc of the compatibility layer story.16:19
cwillujemark, gstreamer _has_ pulseaudio support though, so you don't need to use the compatability layer for it (skype and the rest will still work _because_ of the compatibility layer)16:20
jemarkcwillu: and more cpu usage...16:21
cwilluonly for the apps that are still using the alsa api16:21
jemarkcwillu: it's like vista with compatibility layers of xp and nt, etc16:21
cwillujemark, that's a whole other ballgame16:21

jemarkcwillu: the question is: is it possible to get 1% cpu usage of rhythmbox in Intrpid... im interested in low cpu usage since I don't want to waste my battery16:22
cwillujemark, omg16:23
cwillubut again, can you please set gstreamer-properties to pulseaudio, and retest rhythmbox?16:23
cwillulast time16:23
charlie-tcamigration-assistant source package, ByteJuggler16:23
jemarkcwillu: compatibilty layers, alsa, pulseaudio... i don't mind... all i like is to hear the sound going out of my speakers with rhythmbox with a low cpu usage... the same as in Hardy.16:24
ByteJugglercharlie-tca: ty16:24
cwillujemark, I don't care.  Either do the test I've asked you 5 times to do, or stop talking about it :p16:24
jemarkcwillu: are you using intrepid now?16:24
cwillujemark, I've got 2 intrepid machines, and a couple hardy machines16:24
jemarkcwillu: why don't u test this... i've tested it already. it's still high with only pulseaaudio in gstreamer-propoerties.16:25
cwillujemark, THEN SAY THAT THE FIRST TIME16:25
jemarkcwillu: do you think i would tell ths story if i don't test it FIRST???16:25
cwillujemark, you came in, said something about a problem.  I spent a couple minutes looking for bug reports that were related, and linked you to them.  You told me "i know about those bugs...".  I can't read your mind16:26
jemarkRhythmbox ix eating CPU like Flash in intrepid... cpu usage with flash is another issue ofcurse... still high with Flash 10 final16:27
jemarkcwillu: yes, I know about the crossfading... how could I get 1% cpu usage in Hardy... it would be 50 percent with the crossfading.16:28
td123jemark: not necessarily...16:28
td123jemark: it could range anywhere from 1% to 100% depending on your processor :P16:29
jemarktd123: let me know how to fix this... i would check it right away in my hardy where i type on...16:29
cwilluooo, xchat doesn't log ignored users to .xchat2/xchatlogs any more!  bonus :)16:29
jemarki use a 1.6 Ghz Duo core 2 processor.16:30
td123jemark: what is your current setup?16:30
jemarktd123: yes16:30
td123jemark: how do you know its eating so much cpu.. is it because your computer is slow or you checked?16:30
jemarktd123: 1) fan is blowing a 2) checked "top" and looked which process is the cause of the high cpu usage16:31
ttaI can't get rhythmbox to exceed ~10%16:32
ByteJugglercan I ask a really stupid question: How/Where do you set gstreamer properties/change rhythmbox to use pulseaudio?   For reference, on my old AMD64-3200+ 2Ghz which I'm on now, running Intrepid, Rhythmbox uses 5% on a default install, no settings changed16:32
ByteJuggler(reported by top)16:32
jemarktta: very good... try audio streaming16:32
jemarktta: with the crossfader on ;)16:33
ByteJuggler(pulseaudio process takes about 1.7%)16:33
cwilluByteJuggler, gstreamer-properties16:33
minimecByteJuggler: <alt><F2> 'gstreamer-properties' change the audio section.16:33
ByteJugglerah ok ta16:33
jemarkByteJuggler: change to Pulseaudio16:34
jemarkByteJuggler: Rhythmbox uses 5% when ur playing a mp3, I guess? can you tell what it uses when ur using radio streaming?16:36
minimecByteJuggler: If you want to play around with Pulseaudio, I recommend to install 'pavucontrol' ;)16:37
jemarkByteJuggler: I guess, I would need to install a fresh Intrepid or 9.04... upgrading from Hardy to Intrepid gave me a high cpu usage in Rhythmbox...16:38
ByteJugglerwell16:39
=== raystlin is now known as lilrayray
ByteJugglerinterestingly, i've just forced it to ALSA (= unneccesary layering if i understand correctly) and it's still using about 5%16:39
ByteJuggler(I have restarted rhythmbox etc)16:39
td123jemark: the actual upgrade shouldn't have caused it.. its the package that's included in intrepid if anything16:40
ByteJuggler(this is playing from magnatune, not sure if that streams but I think it does)16:40
jemarktd123: umm... alright16:41
ByteJugglerI'll do a test from a proper radio stream hang on...16:41
td123jemark: I'll try it out16:41
jemarkByteJuggler: have you tried audiostreaming as well? not only a simple mp3 file?16:41
ByteJugglerjemark: like I say, the tests were using Magnatune which I *think* (but am not sure) streams16:42
jemarkByteJuggler: ok cool16:42
td123jemark: what is your average cpu usage for rhythmbox?16:42
ByteJugglerI'll do another test with a radio stream16:42
minimecByteJuggler: My Rhythmbox also uses about 5% of my CPU and i have a amd 5000+ on a Hardy machine with PulseAudio.16:43
lilrayrayhas anyone got a pptp vpn working in intrepid? i need to connect to a m$ pptp server and i keep getting the error message that the connection "failed because there were no valid VPN secrets."  Any ideas?16:44
ByteJugglerdoes anyone have any radio url handy (no default ones in rhythmbox on a default intrepid install)16:45
minimecByteJuggler: http://ubuntu.hbr1.com:19800/ambient.ogg16:45
minimecByteJuggler: The link is not working... as I see.16:46
ByteJugglerlol so i see16:47
minimecByteJuggler: This one works http://scfire-dtc-aa05.stream.aol.com:80/stream/107416:49
ByteJugglerthanks, this also seems to work: http://www.hbr1.com/playlist/ambient.pls16:50
ByteJuggler(google knows all lol)16:50
ByteJugglerok well CPU use is the same on a radio stream for me16:53
ByteJugglerand it's also virtually the same for me regardless of whether I force gstreamer properties to PulseAudio or ALSA16:53
danbh_intrepidByteJuggler: I think pulse implements the ALSA api16:55
ByteJugglerrhythmbox uses between 4.3 and about 7peak% CPU, averaging about 5% or so on "top" (with pulseaudio taking between 0.7% and 1.7%)16:55
ByteJugglerdanbh: yeah I'm just commenting cos there was a whole big discussion about Pulse and ALSA just now...16:56
danbh_intrepidits like WINE.  Its not an emulator.  In the same way, I think pulse doesn't have compatibility layers.  It has modules which implement the various apis16:56
ByteJugglerjemark was having unnaturally high CPU usage16:56
minimecByteJuggler: I was just testing exaile. Looks like exaile uses a bit less of CPU. I get between 4%-5%16:56
danbh_intrepidi see16:56
ByteJugglerso I decided to test on my machine (which is older than jemark)16:57
nlionhey guys16:57
nlionI'm having sound trouble on a macbook 2,116:57
nlionin ibex16:57
ByteJugglerdanbh: ok i c16:58
ByteJuggler(that fits in which why the cpu use is the same)16:58
td123ByteJuggler: so what was your conclusion on the older cpu?17:00
ByteJugglerwell, for me the CPU use is the same on Intrepid in all cases, whether using Pulse or ALSA17:00
ByteJugglerit seems acceptably low at about 5% (sometimes lower, sometimes slightly higher)17:01
td123ByteJuggler: so, what was jemark talking about?17:01
ByteJugglerdidn't follow the first part of the conversation in detail but he was having higher cpu use on rhythmbox (10%+) compared to hardy (1%) and wanted to know why and how he can get it down (running core2 at 1.6Ghz iirc)17:02
cwillutd123, 5% is higher than should be expected17:02
ByteJuggler(will have to scroll back up to check)17:03
td123cwillu: 5% is pretty reasonable though imo17:03
cwillumplayer will play an mp3 < 1% cpu17:03
ByteJugglerthis is a 2Ghz AMD64 754pin CPU17:03
cwillupre-pa, it seems that gstreamer was <1% as well17:03
ByteJugglerabout 3.5 years old17:03
td123oh, I guess that could be high, so who wants to profile rhythmbox :d17:04
cwilluI'm tempted to blame a change in gstreamer actually17:04
cwilluit's the only thing that's the same across totem, rhythmbox and banshee17:04
cwilluand that's also in-process17:04
ByteJugglerIll have to test on Hardy to compare (havent got it on this box tho...)17:05
ByteJugglerbtw in case it matters, this is an Ogg stream17:05
cwilludecoding the file isn't the issue afaict17:05
ByteJugglersure17:06
cwillumore likely that it's either buffering very aggressively, or there's some extra transcoding going on17:06
ByteJugglerso you reckon 5% is a bit high even for this box?17:06
td123ByteJuggler: I think you can't say 5% is too high until you've actually profiled it and see what its spending that 5% on17:07
ByteJuggleragreed17:07
cwilluit's really really easy to burn more cpu time doing higher quality filtering and the like, it's quite possible that something was turned on17:07
cwillunot completely convinced it's a bug, but it _is_ possible to play an mp3 with next to no cpu time on any modern'ish machine17:08
WelshDragonByteJuggler, have you got cross fading enabled?17:09
ByteJugglerno17:09
cwilluwell, on the other hand, mplayer is using 3% cpu on this box (as opposed to 5% with banshee, totem or rhythm17:11
minimeccwillu: ByteJuggler: exaile uses 4%-5% on a amd 500+ dualcore with a normal 32bit Hardy installation. OUtput is PulseAudio.17:13
minimec500017:13
minimecI guess, the plugins and database stuff are taking 2-3% permanently...17:14
=== rconan_ is now known as rconan
cwilludatabase wouldn't be doing anything for playback17:15
cwilluplugins could be a problem, but should only be if they're actually filtering the audio stream17:15
ByteJugglerwell, for reference, my laptop (AMD64 1.8Ghz running hardy) uses a shedload more CPU lol17:16
ByteJuggler(just walked over and tried)17:16
ByteJugglermight be something I've done to the laptop (but don't think so)...17:16
cwillu1.8 would match his clock speed as well17:16
cwilluaround 10-15%17:16
cwillu?17:16
ByteJugglerthere was a rhythmbox and rhythmbox-metad and pulseaudio processes17:16
ByteJugglerrhythmbox was eating like 15%17:17
cwilluPLEASE NOTE: PulseAudio's default configuration uses high quality sample17:17
cwillurate conversion that may be overly CPU intensive. If PulseAudio's CPU usage17:17
cwilluis unacceptable on your hardware, please change the resample-method option17:17
cwilluin /etc/pulse/daemon.conf to either src-linear or trivial. See daemon.conf17:17
cwillufor more details.17:17
ByteJuggleranyway, I wouldn't read too much into that cos I might've done any number of things to that laptop17:17
minimecjust playing an radio stream in audacious. 11% CPU on hardy ;)17:18
ByteJugglerbut still, a bit surprising17:18

cwilluminimec, comparison in question was against hardy without pulse17:19
ByteJugglerah kk (brb)17:19
Turmssome op would write in the topic the reference to the workaround for outdated modems not working with kernel 2.6.27?17:19
minimeccwillu: 9% using the alsa-outpu-plugin17:20
cwilluminimec, have you tweaked pulse at all though?17:20
cwilluminimec, flash workarounds typically applied the same settings that intrepid has by default, including an alsawrapper that would be getting used by alsa-output-plugin17:21
cwilluminimec, close rhythmbox, killall pulseaudio, reopen rhythmbox and retest :p17:21
minimeccwillu: As I was always upgrading I used 'the almost perfect pulseaudio tutorial' and made a manual install on hardy17:21
cwilluyep, do as I said above, you were still going through pulse17:22
cwillumake sure pulseaudio isn't showing up at all once rhythmbox is playing (ps aux|grep pulse), and then check cpu usage17:22
charlie-tcaTurms: done17:23
minimeccwillu: Pulse is on test here, I agree, as I have some issues with my TV-card.17:23
ByteJugglerhmmm well on the turion amd64 1.8ghz (single core) it's 7.3% cpu for rhythmbox alsa (no pulseaudio in process list) and 1.7% for rhythmbox-metad17:24
ByteJugglerwhich is a lot lighter than with pulseaudio17:24
ByteJuggler(both of those on hardy)17:24
cwilluByteJuggler, okay, so jemark is just on crack :p17:25
minimeccwillu: On the other hand, I love the sound-managment with pavucontrol, as it alows me to control my soundcards easily.17:25
ByteJugglercwillu: well yeah, it's all similar scores from where I'm sitting17:25
Turmscharlie-tca: thanks :-)17:25
ByteJuggler(except for the pulseaudio scores on hardy which is a bit bad)17:25
cwilluByteJuggler, let no man say I didn't investigate :p17:25

sanbsnider: Do you know if this issue will be fixed for the final release?20:09
cwillu_remotealex_mayorga, you're probably best off submitting a new bug, with a link back to bug #124159, with an up-to-date summary of what is known (leaving out anything bcm43xx-related, except perhaps for historical context)20:09

cwillu_remotedanage, then run dpkg --configure -a again20:11
bsnidersan, it isn't really an issue. the problem occurred because of the new drivers available in the .27 kernel. the restricted-modules package used to be necessary but isn't anymore.20:11
cwillu_remotedanage, if that works, run apt-get dist-upgrade, and the dpkg --configure -a, back and forth until they both finish with no errors20:11

cwillutrigpin, I'm inclined to say you've got a hardware problem :/20:59
trigpincwillu, oh damn21:00
DanaGYeah.  Advice for dealing with failing hard drive: stop using it... as soon as possible.  Use a backup system, or something, and get a new hard drive to transfer the data to.21:01
trigpincwillu, do be honest has been making clunking nosises when it starts =(21:02
ByteJugglerI'd suggest you get yourself another hard disk, then boot up with the Ubuntu rescue remix CD (or maybe the liveCD with some extra apps installed online, or something like Trinity Rescue Kit), then clone the old disk to the new one with e.g. "dd_rescue"21:03
danagecwillu dist-upgrade now gives done, no errors21:03
danagedkpg configure gives no output21:04
DanaGgddrescue21:04
ByteJugglerit will get the good parts of the disk first, then try as long/hard (or not) as you like to try the damaged bits21:04
cwillutrigpin, that would count as 'anything else weird' :p21:04
DanaGHandy hint: use a log file.21:04
danagewhat do i do to finalize the upgrade process?21:04
DanaGPut the log file on a flash drive, or such.21:04
ByteJuggler(yeah dd_rescue = the command in gddrescue package iirc)21:04
cwillutrigpin, shut the machine down, leave it shut down until you have something to back up to21:04
DanaGThat way, if it locks up, it can resume even after a reboot.21:04
cwillutrigpin, but pay more attention to DanaG and ByteJuggler than me right now :p21:05
cwilludanage, yay!21:05

hadi57ok thnx21:37
danageafter my distro-upgrade to intrepid, update manager shows ubuntu-desktop as a package but it's greyed out, i cannot install it. any ideas how i could resolve that?21:38

hadi57yes21:42
danagebobertdos: i think that's what it needed21:42
danagethanks21:42
bsniderhadi57, do not use restricted driver manager for the atheros card anymore. remove all linux-restricted-modules packages you have installed21:43
hadi57i didnt install them, i dont know how to remove them, still not that good in command line21:44
bsniderhadi57, open synaptic and search for linux-restricted-modules21:45

hadi57ill do now21:46

bsniderdo a lspci -nn, look for the pciid -- [168c:0019] or something like that associated with the atheros device22:17
hadi57u know, when i issued the command ath5k, i didnt see any reactiion22:17
hadi57ok ill do now22:17

bsniderwell, that pciid is on this list as definitely working22:22
hadi57what i could be missing22:23
bsnidermaybe jockey is trying to load the madwifi drivers or something i don't know. i'd file a bug. the package is going to be your latest kernel. tell them that the kernel isn't properly loading ath5k to control your card even though it is listed as working.22:24
bsnideri've helped a few people over the past few days with exactly the same problem as you except they got it working. so maybe you're not doing something they did22:25
hadi57few hours ago, i was trying to install huawei 3.5G usb modem, and couldnt, do you think that may affected it?22:27

bsnidernlion, your headphone jack is probably muted22:33
Supersaiyan_IVnlion, volume control → preferences, enable everything, then look for headphone output and enable/unmute22:33
nlionexcellent, ok that works22:35

nlionbut the volume doesn't actually change22:36

J-_I flippin well hope so with the GM965. Someone told me to get this laptop because the hardware would work well in Hardy, and upcoming releases.23:27
J-_;(23:27
bsniderthat's human with the new wallpaper23:28
limecatcheck the panels tho, they have a gritty dealie goin23:28
limecatits awesome23:28
bsniderthey're partially transparent23:28
J-_charlie-tca:  Meh, maybe I'll just wait til it's out of beta. I don't want to risk my newish laptop.23:29
limecatoh, doh23:29
J-_would suck to have hardware not work after installation23:29
charlie-tcaOkay, should be the RC this week23:29
limecatnow if i could only get repos with bleeding edge versions of wine >_>23:29
charlie-tcaI saw on the mailing list the maintainer has packaged the latest version for Ubuntu23:30
ByteJugglerlike I say, I cant personally vouch for the GM965 but I'm 96.231% sure it'll be fine23:31
ByteJuggler:P23:31
charlie-tcaSorry, that's stable version, I think23:31
J-_heh23:31
ByteJuggler(my 9800XT otoh is not so fine... :( )23:31
ByteJuggler(irritatingly)23:31
charlie-tca:(23:33
* DanaG wonders if nvidia will EVER fix the damn 96 drivers.23:35
limecatyea, it is23:35
DanaGWhat panel image is that?23:35
limecatwhich is irritating, since the point of wine, when it comes to games, is to get the most FPS, which means dev version (or latest that works with your game)23:36
pwnguini thought the point of wine was to run23:36
limecattell that to a raid leader/arena partner in wow23:37
limecatwell, its 2fps, but hey, it runs!23:37
RAOFs/most FPS/adequate FPS/23:37
limecatagreed, but adequate=most at this point in wow, when youre playing on a laptop23:37
limecatand runs=latest when it comes to warhammer (with luck)23:38
pwnguinsomehow, i cant help but imagine most means not running wine23:38
* ByteJuggler enables the new "gritty" wallpaper on his Intrepid install...23:38
limecati get more FPS on my laptop with latest wine/hardy, vs vista with all crap services off and themes off23:38
RAOFWhen I was playing WoW, my laptop (after I stopped it throttling due to overheating) got perfectly adequate ~60FPS with wine versions as old as 0.96(?) or there abouts.23:38
bsniderit's increasingly the case that computers aren't for 3d gaming though23:39
limecati think it was 30FPS wine/hardy vs 15 opengl vista, or 20 directx vista23:39
* ByteJuggler cant really see any difference on the panels... (?)23:39
ajmitchRAOF: I wouldn't mind seeing something that smooth :)23:39
limecatByteJuggler: i was an idiot, the panels were transparent because of compiz and weere showing the background23:40
ByteJugglerrofl ok23:40
limecatanywho, cya all :D23:40
* c0mp13371331337 slowly snuggles into Intrepid rather nicely.23:40
DanaGE: module-alsa-sink.c: snd_pcm_rewind() failed: No such device23:41

DanaGgrr.23:41
ByteJugglerfwiw I think sound on Linux is moving in the right direction with Pulse, it's all becoming pretty damn cool...23:42
ByteJuggler(so thanks if you're working on it)23:43
J-_should I download 32 or 64bit?23:43
ByteJugglerwhat cpu have you got?23:43
pwnguinim just happy that my jacksense works23:43
J-_I have a 64bit cpu23:43
pwnguinno more looking like an idiot with my headphones on and the speakers playing23:43
bsnideraccording to recent remarks by linus, you should be using 64-bit23:43
ByteJugglerhow new are  you with linux/ubuntu?23:44
dli__!icedtea23:44
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about icedtea23:44
J-_ByteJuggler:  I've had Ubuntu installed a couple years. Since dapper I think, possibly back more.23:44
J-_I might just download 32bit. I want to try adobe air.23:45
ByteJugglerok, well I'd also say 64-bit with the warning that there's a diminishing number of things which need a little more fiddling to get working (or requires 32-bit versions to be installed)23:45
ByteJugglercompared to 32-bit23:45
ByteJugglerall imho of course23:45
ByteJugglerit also depends on how much RAM you ahve23:46
c0mp13371331337What about flash on 64 bit firefox?  I've read a few ways of doing this, what's the best in everyone's opinion?23:46
wgrantc0mp13371331337: Click Install when it asks you.23:46
ByteJugglerless than 4GB (or I should say 3.5GB) and you might as well avoid any hassles by going 32-bit23:47
J-_2gb RAM23:47
dli__c0mp13371331337, I use gnash /swfdec23:47
* sarixe skdjf23:47
* sarixe dies23:48
c0mp13371331337wgrant: Hasn't asked me yet.  I tried going to youtube, it didn't display anything where the video should be.23:49
ByteJuggler(sorry cant remember what I did for flash on my 64bit install)23:49
c0mp13371331337dli__: I've had bad luck with gnash being buggy in the past (6-12 months ago).  Has it gotten more stable since?23:49
dli__I think ubuntu will do well during recession? can I buy ubuntu stocks on market?23:50
dli__c0mp13371331337, they just released 0.8.4, should be quite stable23:50
J-_...23:50
dli__c0mp13371331337, swfdec is always stable for me, but uses too much cpu power23:50
J-_buy ubuntu stocks? I thought Canonical was private...23:51
dli__J-_, any chance to go public?23:51
dli__J-_, I think recession would give linux a lift23:51
J-_Ask Mark Shuttleworth.23:51
* sarixe hi23:52
c0mp13371331337dli__: I'll check it out then, thanks!23:52
dli__c0mp13371331337, probably, you may want to try gnash when 1.0.0 released23:53
wgrantc0mp13371331337: That's because YouTube does strange detectiony things. Visit another Flash-using site - if it asks for Flash, Firefox will ask you to install it.23:53
* c0mp13371331337 adds 'detectiony' to list of words to be used at least 5 times today.23:55
