SpinachHeadis there someone i can IM that knows about the installation cd?00:02
soundrayPriceChild: thanks for that, very nice.00:02
Monkey_I see the B43 one, but it isn't the one I want00:03
exodus_MSno one wants to tackle the wireless issue, i see, it is a bit redundant but I assure you i have done my homework00:03
soundrayowen1: I'm sure it's possible, but I have no experience with automounting removable devices outside of Gnome00:03

rainabbaI'm trying to do a netBoot install using a local Apache server using the ubuntu-8.04.1-server-i386 distro. Which folder (from the ISO) should be the root of the HTTP server in order for this to work? (I've already got the PXE side of things working).00:04
SpinachHeadokay, I need to install hardy without internet. Does the cd have all the packages or does the istallation process dl the packages as the install goes?00:04
owen1soundray: get it. created a 1 line script, called it usb-drive.00:04
jribSpinachHead: the desktop cd has all the packages you need to install00:04

owen1soundray: to mount it.00:05
exodus_MSSpinachHead, yes, the cd will download a working OS but you will need an Internet connection to "fetch" updates and packages not avail on the cd00:05
soundrayowen1: that's a good way00:05
titan_Are there any settings I can use to raise the audio on Ubuntu past the default max? I can bearly hear my audio of movies even with it maxxed.00:05
Monkey_tgitan, doubleclick on the audio panel on the top bar, and adjust the far right bar00:06
SpinachHeadokay, so i did the alternate cd disk.  I got to configre intenet.  since i dont have, i said later.  Then when installing packages in the next step it said error. and I assumed it was because o lack of connetctionl  i did the md5sum on the cd and everything was fine. so why would it stop installing ?00:06
soundraytitan_: double click the volume icon to get the mixer and make sure that both Master volume and PCM are turned up00:06
HelmintheRideh: short answer - yes :)00:06
Monkey_titan, you can also maybe change the 'Front' level00:06
titan_ok checking soundray00:07
jribSpinachHead: you would need to tell us the error.  You ran "check the cd for defects"?  Not just md5sum on the iso?00:07

soundray!rootshell | scientus_00:12
ubottuscientus_: Using !sudo with single commands is preferable in most circumstances. However, if you really need a root shell, use « sudo -i » (other variants of this commands are redundant and/or potentially dangerous)00:12
scientus_not being able to log into a user does not meen you cant use it00:12
nonix4(mainly happens w/ everything-at-defaults virtual machine installations w/ small-ish hd allocation after couple updates)00:12
bcxhi ! i got a network question - i run ubuntu in a vm and it often disconnects my hosts wlan connection - tried roaming and static - but when i open a network path from host system it disconnects my hosts wlan00:12
scientus_what would be dangerous, bash doesnt change any config files by default00:12
soundrayexodus_MS: why don't you configure WLAN in the host system and use NAT to Ubuntu?00:13
scientus_itts not dependant on $HOME, etc00:13
exodus_MSSpinachHead, i wish i could help. there are many linux savy folks on this channel, maybe one of them will take the time to help you. dont give up and hang in there00:13
nathan-_scientus_: good question, i've wondered this too.  Same as the addage 'guns don't kill people, people do'.. i.e. bash won't destroy your system, only you as the one who runs it will00:14
nathan-_if you don't know what you are doing00:14
exodus_MSsoundray, tried that, ubuntu doesnt regonise my card00:14
RakataPrimeI just installed linux a couple days ago, my cd rom drive isn't working.  hwd -s doesn't say anything about it, so I don't know if it is even being detected. Any suggestions?00:14
bcxim using bridged netowrk currently00:14
R0b0t1Does anyone have any suggestions as how to get Java applets to work correctly in firefox? The default does not work, and I have tried ubottu's link, which did not work. I had it working on the same install before, but for some reason it just now decided to fail.00:14
roganhow do i get amarok to play m4a format? and read the id3s correctly?00:14
soundrayscientus_: running a root shell, you may have certain expectations about where variables point, e.g. $HOME. sudo bash and sudo -i are different in that respect00:15
KenBW2R0b0t1: could be because ubuntu doesnt include the official Java00:15
tarelerulzDo any of you have a media player the use the mtp protocol ?  Is good management program for device that use it .  So you can add songs , movies , picture easy00:15
jribR0b0t1: you need to give details.  What exactly did you do that did not work?  And how exactly did it not work?00:15
soundrayexodus_MS: it doesn't have to if it's recognized in the host system00:15
jorfffftry this dumpbin command using the kernel32.lib file00:15
scientus_ahh, programs make assume root sheel and $HOME=/root etc are constant, i can see that00:15
KenBW2tarelerulz: Rhythmbox has a plugin or MTP00:15
R0b0t1Well, OK. I dealt with this problem a while back and fixed.00:15
R0b0t1it00:15
R0b0t1What I did was change the default java by using the replace-alternatives, etc.00:16
jrib!enter | R0b0t100:16
ubottuR0b0t1: Please try to keep your questions/responses on one line - don't use the "Enter" key as punctuation!00:16
R0b0t1But now that will not work.00:16
nonix4nathan-_: most preinstalled linux systems can be crashed in the store with a 12-character bash command.00:16
scientus_but soundray i did point out my not thinking that---big thing is i like my working directory to stay the same or i wont use it00:16
jribR0b0t1: don't say "doesn't work", say what exactly happens00:16
jorfffftry this dumpbin command using the kernel32.lib file00:16
R0b0t1jrib: Nothing.00:16
exodus_MSsoundray, ok, im on the host system right now and ubuntu is running in vmware, but i still cannot connect to internet from ubuntu00:16
R0b0t1Nothing happens when something should be happening.00:16
tarelerulzKenBW2 ,  do you just drag over the files you want to have on the player and the player read the tags and organize it right.00:17
nonix4(because they have no ulimits set and ridiculously bad OOM handling)00:17
soundrayexodus_MS: have you configured VMware to share its connection with the virtual machine?00:17
dtechrunning Hardy, need to run gksu displayconfig-gtk .... ERROR: GtK-WARNING **: cannot open display00:17
jribR0b0t1: great, I have no understanding of what your issue is. You're goal is to install the sun java plugin in firefox?00:17
R0b0t1However, when I do try to change the default Java, it says everything worked, but after restarting and then using "java -version" it still says it is OpneJDK.00:17
R0b0t1jrib: Actually, its to get that, and allow java applications to run.00:18
nathan-_nonix4: ok you can destroy a system if you do know what you are doing also.  But it all implies that the user is an idiot (i.e. has no idea and could break a system unknowingly, or does know what they are doing and breaks a system intentionally - both are idiots)00:18
bcxis it a problem if i used 2 bridged networks in a vm for xp and ubuntu ?00:18
exodus_MSsoundray, im using NAT00:18
jribR0b0t1: the java you get from running "java" and the java that runs in your browser are two different things.  So which of those do you want to work on?00:18

jribR0b0t1: sure.  Check 'java -version'00:22
R0b0t1Wait.00:22
R0b0t1Why didn't it work before?00:22
jribR0b0t1: jrib's magic touch00:22
R0b0t1jrib: Do you think you could help me set up the browser, now, if you have time?00:22
nonix4nathan-_: well on a properly configured system a fork bomb shouldn't really do anything more than consume a bit of cpu :)00:23

KenBW2jonasfa: why does it need to be?00:26
soundraynylax: if it was my machine, I'd put Ubuntu 8.04 x86_64 on it. There is a slight issue with java in 64bit, so you may prefer i38600:26
jribR0b0t1: sun is just lazy (or whatever).  The bug on their tracker is several years old, but they don't release a 64bit plugin00:26

lakitulogin was fine00:56
rainabbaI'm trying to do a netBoot install using a local Apache server using the ubuntu-8.04.1-server-i386 distro. Which folder (from the ISO) should be the root of the HTTP server in order for this to work? (I've already got the PXE side of things working).00:56
stickmastathis is the 4th room and still no help00:57
EruditeHermitwesku_:  you have an nvidia card? did you ever install nvidia binary driver with this?00:57
BitbybitHow can I find out if I'm using the 32bit or 64bit version of Ubuntu 8.04?00:57
isilionEruditeHermit: SUCCESS THANX SUCCESS THANX!!! fglrxinfo now shows ATI and radeon 9800. glxgears runs at 9160 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1832.000 FPS. its normal? i think its a bit slow. im on a p4 2.8 1.5ram (ati 9800 pro)00:57
soundraylakitu: do a Ctrl-Alt-Backspace and see if it works if you log into a Failsafe Gnome session00:57
wesku_EruditeHermit: Yes, I have ti4200 and didn't install drivers00:57
stickmastacan i have help with my huge problem?00:57
lakitufailsafe gnome is fine00:58
EruditeHermitisilion: if fglrxinfo shows fglrx and you can fgl_glxgears from commandline, then it is working00:58
nolochemicalhey :)00:58
rainabbastickmasta: YOu might want to ask a real question.00:58
stickmastamy ubuntu says "Error Loading Operating System" then hangs00:58
stickmastahelp?00:58
wesku_EruditeHermit: shall I try installing the drivers then?00:58
EruditeHermitwesku_: no00:58
soundraylakitu: would it be terrible if you had to reset your entire gnome configuration?00:58
nolochemical..does anyone a way to adjust low level configurations like the L2 Cache that ubunutu use00:58
nolochemical*ubuntu uses00:59
EruditeHermitwesku_: do you want 3D and fancy stuff?00:59
lakitusoundray, what are the ramifications of that - what would i lose?00:59
wesku_EruditeHermit: nah00:59
stickmastamy ubuntu says "Error Loading Operating System" then hangs00:59
stickmasta, can i have help help?00:59
wesku_im fine without00:59
EruditeHermitwesku_: don't bother then00:59
Dreamgliderstickmasta ask you question00:59
Dreamglideryour*00:59
soundraylakitu: things like your panel configuration, preferences settings etc.00:59
jorfffftry this dumpbin command using the kernel32.lib file00:59
EruditeHermitwesku_: do you need the ubuntu server stuff? I would recommend just installing ubuntu from a normal user CD00:59
isilionEruditeHermit: 2952 frames in 5.0 seconds = 590.400 FPS thats better. supose i was using wrong trial01:00
lakitusoundray, i'd rather not. is there a way to "rollback" this update?01:00
rainabbaWhen Ubuntu Netboot connects to a mirror to look for packages, what file(s) is it seeking to determine if the mirror is valid?01:00
stickmastamay someone help me with my hanging screen please?01:00
wesku_EruditeHermit: Well, no.01:00
LjLrainabba: define "valid"01:00
Rovinhmm, is there an update on OpenOffice 3.0 yet?01:00
isilionEruditeHermit:  could repeat me all the commands so i post it for if that could help someone more?01:00
soundraylakitu: downgrading is generally not supported. Do you know exactly what caused the problem?01:00
EruditeHermitisilion: glxgears and fgl_glxgears numbers don't really mean anything. It doesn't test how fast your card is really. The only thing they are good for is to show that GL is enabled01:00
Bitbybiti need to know if i'm using 32bit or 64bit01:01
lakitusoundray, just some updates that i had let go for awhile. they required rebooting01:01
stickmastacan some help me with my ubuntu, it says "Error Loading Operating System" then hangs01:01
rainabbaLjL: "Valid" meaning, the installed doesn't come back saying "Bad archive mirror"01:01
EruditeHermitwesku_: no, you don't need the server stuff or no you can't reinstall?01:01
thiebauderovin:i think i have 3.0 in 8.10 i would need to check01:01
rainabbas/installed/installer01:01
lakitusoundray, so, no, not exactly01:01
LjLBitbybit: type "uname -a"01:01

stickmastacan some help me with my ubuntu, it says "Error Loading Operating System" then hangs01:02
EruditeHermitwesku_: hang on a sec before I tell you to do that01:02
rainabbaLjL: "Valid" meaning, the installer doesn't come back saying "Bad archive mirror"01:02
thiebaudehspaans,yup01:02
EruditeHermitwesku_: that will be the last resort01:02
thiebaude2.401:02
EruditeHermitwesku_: I have never used ubuntu server edition so I don't know what it does01:02
lakitusoundray, is there a way to tell why i'm getting a blackout in place of a desktop?01:03
stickmastacan some help me with my ubuntu, it says "Error Loading Operating System" then hangs01:03
Bitbybitstickmasta: are you able to boot to recovery from grub menu?01:03
LjLrainabba: "Bad archive mirror - The specified ubuntu archive mirror is either not available, or does not have a valid Release file on it."01:03
Rovincan I update to 8.10 when released from wubi?01:03
hspaansand to be honest, 3.0 is not really a great improvement01:03
soundraylakitu: you could examine ~/.xsession-errors for clues01:03
wesku_EruditeHermit: I think it's just install of ubuntu without the software packages and GUI01:03
EruditeHermitwesku_: can you ctrl+alt+F1 into a terminal01:03
stickmastaBitbyBit: No01:03
wesku_EruditeHermit: yes, I'm in terminal currently01:03
rainabbaLjL: Ok, so what is a "Valid Release file"?01:03
isilionEruditeHermit:  at least tell me what was the file i edited01:03
thiebaudehspaans:are you on 8.10?01:03
LjLrainabba: well, for starters if no "Release" file exists at all, then it's hardly valid01:03
hspaansthiebaude: yes01:03
Bitbybitstickmasta: check the disk for errors with a live disk perhaps?01:04
MyyogaHey folks, I installed Emerald and now im interested in removing it.How do I get it off my comp?01:04
Helminthestickmasta: your problem is not related to ubuntu or linux at all, what you said looks like a bios error message01:04
EruditeHermitisilion: I did. scroll up01:04
EruditeHermitisilion: I just told you01:04
jribMyyoga: how did you install it?01:04
Danskmandsoundray - do you think my fcpci can be healed ?01:04
rainabbaLjL: So a "valid Release file" is a file named "Release"?01:04
Myyogathrough synaptic01:04
EruditeHermitwesku_: can you startx from it?01:04
jribMyyoga: you remove it the same way01:04

wesku_EruditeHermit: already active on display 001:04
rainabbaLjL: Thank you01:05
soundrayDanskmand: sorry, I haven't had to deal with ISDN for over 10 years (and am quite glad for it)01:05
vmsstickmasta: bios says that when it doesn't find anything bootable on MBR, your best bet is to boot a live cd and (re)install grub01:05
EruditeHermitwesku_: sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop and then try startx01:05
Myyogahmmmmm, good point. so then when I go back into the desktop effects tab, U cab choose normal or extra and emerald will not stat up?01:05
Myyoga*start01:05
stickmastaBitbyBit: well i shows the screen with my systems stuff on it then it looks from a boot record from cd, then it says ok, then tells me something about my hard drive then says "Error loading operating system"01:05
Danskmandsoundray: What do you use for saxing then ?01:05
jribMyyoga: it shouldn't.  That should be all you have to do assuming you didn't configure it anywhere else for your user01:05
soundrayDanskmand: faxing?01:06
EruditeHermitisilion: the only thing that is missing in the previous post from yours is sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-local and comment the line in there01:06
wesku_EruditeHermit: is there way to scroll terminal up and down?01:06
Helminthe.. who could I ask for a shortcut like "!nul" that would say "your problem is not related to ubuntu or linux at all"?01:06

vmsKiller--Tux: first, i would wine app db at winehq.org, if it's not supported check cedega's db01:22
soundraylakitu: in case you decide to reset your gnome configuration, the command is 'gconftool --recursive-unset /'01:23

rainabbaI'm thinking my approach is fundamentally flawed. I have the Ubuntu Server Alt Disk and I'm trying to use it with Apache and Netboot to do a netboot install from a local mirror. Given the proper configuration, is that possible, or do I need another image/more packages?01:33
DanskmandWE'll do that !01:33
MalfermitaKodoOkay, let me rephrase it: the first mouse is normally /dev/psaux... even if is it USB, fsor... what is the 2nd mouse, which device?01:34

MalfermitaKodoThat's my xorg.conf02:20

MTecknologyBlue112: If it's an issue with an installed application, you could try making a backup of installed apps, reinstall ubuntu, make sure to leave /home unformatted. Hopefully you always keep it on its own partition02:40
chaddyseperate /home partition and reinstall for that02:40

jonaskoelkerDalem50: how many options does grub give you?  Do they all panic?04:44
CineScopeusser, yep running at 80004:44
jonaskoelkerDalem50: it may be useful for those helping you to see your grub config files04:44
Dalem50jonaskoelker: Correct, they all panic04:44
csilkscunizi,  yeah i was hoping it wouldnt be video card specific, that pretty much makes it impossible to package this software04:44
AnzaPovAddict, Thanks for the advise04:44
cjsWell, I give up; I'll get my sysadmin to look at it another day. *Sigh*.04:45
scunizicsilk, so what kind of card?04:45
usserCineScope, when u click on it does it list other available frequencies04:45
PovAddictAnza: check Wine appdb04:45
Dalem50jonaskoelker: I'm pretty sure it's not the grub configuration files, I think it's the partition and it has bad blocks for some unknown reason.04:45

Dalem50jonaskoelker: Yes, fsck did.04:47
dr_willisremoving the users settings for 'firefox' is a bit of a different problem :)04:47

PovAddictronzilla: don't run a whole Windows partition in a virtual machine (even less in Wine)04:53

shishionathan : u know ?04:54
scunizironzilla, virtualbox is good but get it from their site if you're going to install.. also vmware is good but there are 2 versions.. 1.x.x and 2.x.x beta.. I've used both and prefer 2.x.x because it gives me access to the vm from any other machine without having to install anything else on the other machines..04:54
nathan-_shishio: nice04:54
PovAddictif you have to use a whole Windows system, install it from scratch on a VM (like virtualbox)04:54

brando1Ok, I tried "sudo chmod 777 var/lib/samba/usershare" and it said no such path, what am i missing?04:54
jonaskoelkerDalem50: there's an ext2 driver for windows.  You can use that to recover the files.  Or you can boot your LiveStick and access the file system.04:54
MTecknologyronzilla: first try wine - then go with virtualbox04:54
ronzillaalright, I'll try04:54

unopnewlife, it will work on gnome - but it's a bit of overkill05:15
secret9011angusthefuzz: what do I set it to?05:15

unopnewlife, all of them work - they don't depend on gnome or KDE - they are general X applications05:16
angusthefuzzsecret9011: you will need to experiment, its different for different setups, just play in the mixer with some sound playing and see which slider makes the sound louder05:16
scunizinewlife, gksudo nautilus then ctrl+h to make hidden directories visable.. or applications/accessories/terminal.. konsole and terminal are pretty much the same..05:16

chrisbrl88hey... I need to know how to apply a single shell command to all subdirectories of a given directory05:17
scunizironzilla, you have to run nvidia-settings as root to save.. start it from terminal with sudo nvidia-settings05:17
angusthefuzzronzilla: I found that i needed to save the xorg config that nvidia-settings makes and overwrite the default myself05:17
CapTechnewlife: That's totally subjective.05:18

secret9011angusthefuzz: how do I fix that?05:18
ronzillagotcha05:18
dr_willischrisbrl88,  creative use of the 'find' command is often used for that.05:18
unopnewlife, yea, urxvt has support for unicode, transparency, search-back, tabs even and a few other interesting things - and it's lightweight (compared to the gnome-terminal)05:18
CapTechnewlife: I was totally a Konsole guy for a long time, but terminal has grown on me.05:18

ronzillahave files on them*05:21
unopchrisbrl88, you're probably missing something - show us the exact command you have.05:21
newlifeCapTech: I came across a terminal app about year ago like the one "unop" mentioned with tabs - and it was very nice to use.05:22
dr_willisronzilla,   basically you edit the fstab file and mount them to mountpoints you create.05:22
CapTechnewlife: I just use the default term app in xubuntu, which works perfect for me.05:22
dr_willisronzilla,   the 'ntfs-3g' docs/guides detail this. :)05:22

GumBallidk Dr_WiLlIS05:57
the_dudeapathadeus, yeah yeah, ill see that...05:57
GumBallilu :)05:57
Mikenolikewell my display works again05:57
the_dudeapathadeus, i can live with that hehehe05:57
Mikenolikenvidia blows chunks again however with the driver set05:57
apathadeusthe_dude, do you have multiple cd drives?05:57
the_dudeapathadeus, man do you know how do i format only the ubuntu partition05:58
spasticteapotShould I buy ATi or Nvidia if I want to run Linux?05:58
the_dudeapathadeus, yes, a dvd and a cd driver05:58
spasticteapotIt used to be nvidia or bust.05:58
scuniziMikenolike, you mean the resolution is messed up05:58
MikenolikeScunizi, ty very much for correcting the little ect-etc error05:58
apathadeusthe_dude, i think that MAY be the cause05:58
scuniziMikenolike, np..  hows the resolution?05:58
CapTechapathadeus: I agree.  Have him put the disk in the other drive.05:58
apathadeusthe_dude, the ubuntu cd has a partitioner inside, or you can use magic partition in windows05:58
the_dudeapathadeus, yeh maybe, and the cd has an option, Help to Boot...05:58
Mikenolikehaha trying to see if I can fix it now05:59
the_dudeapathadeus, i install and then he misses one file05:59
Mikenolikeif this works I get to see if I can fail my way around installing warcraft05:59
the_dudeapathadeus, yeah man im on ubuntu, i got it from install inside windows, and i chose the other partition05:59
scuniziMikenolike, might help to install nvidia-settings..05:59
Mikenolikethats french to me....06:00
apathadeusthe_dude, i've never used the boot-from-windows feature. I think if you install it from windows, you can't install it as a partition. at least I haven't figured that out06:00
Anzahow do I use emacs to change mandvd interface language?06:00
scuniziMikenolike, is the gui so large that you really can't do anything with it?06:00

Dr_WiLlISrangzy,  theres a free vmware-server you can get.. ive ran ubuntu under virtualbox also. no problems06:03
scuniziMikenolike, sounds like bad resolution or refresh rate..  ok.. maybe this will help.. ctrl+alt+F7 is where the gui lives.. remember that.. now ctrl+alt+f2 will get you a text screen you have to  log into... once there.. sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings.. then back to the gui with ctrl+alt+F7 and get to a terminal and sudo nvidia-settings.. cange things there.06:03

mynameistuxmy logitech mouse stopped working, and I don't remember what I was doing before it stopped. I have confirmed it is not the battery, it is wireless06:42
jamesishMikenolike: We'll get you through this, no worries. Just be aware I'll be leaving for about forty minutes in about ten minutes. I'll be back later, though.06:43
Mikenolikewell they dont release full specs on things right?06:43
jamesishMikenolike: you sure you got the right driver, first? There're several, and one covers legacy hardware one covers new. If you have the wrong one, it won't install and it'll TELL you that it's not supporting your card.06:43
therealnanotubeMikenolike: yea, that's why the oss driver lacks some features... but it should be perfectly fine for regular 2-d stuff.06:43

jamesishmikenolike: it sounded earlier like you have the driver, you've just got to drop X windows and then run the installer. Is that the case? Once that's done, if something goes wrong UBuntu'll back up your old x-config and offer to restore it after a few bad attempts to start X.06:45

Dr_WiLlISsmm289,  wget has extensive command lineoptions you may need to look at, or find a gui for it.. theres also other web site mirror tools. like htttrack (SP?_06:52

mokzadam7, i dont know ? i just visited their site and there were different versions06:53
cjsI wonder where they got the real one? That's Bell Labs, stuff.06:53
therealnanotubecjs: from "man bash", when it is started in noninteractive mode, it looks for contents of variable "BASH_ENV", and uses that as its rcfile. check your BASH_ENV variable.06:53

cjsWell, it's not. What you really want is for that 324 KB readline package to just bite the bullet, grow by 20%, and include the 80K of header files.07:51
etagcan any one tell me ?07:51
outbackwifiit 'g' not 'q'07:51
cjsBut that's not going to happen any time soon.07:51
indian_munndaoutbackwifi: should i install gparted or qparted??07:51
=== proptcp is now known as porptcp
outbackwifiindian_munnda: theres nothing called qparted07:51
indian_munndaoutbackwifi: oh ok07:51
Dr_WiLlISqtparted, and gparted07:51
indian_munndathank you07:51
jamesishcjs: fair enough :)07:51
cjsJust be glad they bother to include gcc and /usr/include. :-)07:53
diabolixcjs, i guess its less annoying than compiling dependancies yourself.07:53
etag:S07:53
diabolixcjs, arch linux is the only distro i know of that does what your asking.07:54
cjsI'm kinda tempted by it, actually.07:54
jp91i'm going to go blind07:54
cjsBut I've now put something like 30 hours into this changeover from NetBSD....07:54
outbackwifijp91: whats the issue07:54
diabolixslackware includes all headers, but there is no dependancy resolution.07:54
cjs(Though, to be sure, most of it was learning to deal with Gnome.)07:54
jamesishcjs: I've never used NetBSD. Got stuck on FreeBSD. How's pkg src for managing dependencies?07:55
jp91outbackwifi, my screen is really blurry like i need a driver or the hz are wrong07:55
cjspkgsrc is pretty damn good, in that respect.07:55
cjsIn many respects, actually.07:55
diabolixcjs, oh, if your a bsd guy you should just use pkgsrc on top of slackware.07:55
jamesishcjs: and are there automated tools for doing an upgrade once your ports tree is updated? FreeBSD has portmaster and portupgrade, which both rule.07:56
parfuj debian#07:56
cjsjamesish, Yes, of various sorts.07:56
cjsI have two basic issues with pkgsrc, one inherent, one just due to the way they build binary packages.07:56
outbackwifijp91: can you shift to a lower resolution using ctl+alt+-07:56
cjsInherently, the damn thing is written as some 12,000 lines of make. Ouch.07:56
jamesishReally?07:56
cjsYup.07:57
jamesishFreeBSD has the makefiles distributed throughout the ports tree; I just assumed it worked similarly.07:57
jp91outback yes, now i can only see a tiny portion of the screen07:57
cjsOh, they are distributed through out the tree, except for a bunch of included stuff. I'm sure FreeBSD is pretty much the same.)07:57
jp91like i'm zoomed in, but it looks clear07:57
outbackwifijp91: keep doing that till you get to a resolution that suits07:57
jamesishAh, I know what you're talking about, yeah. Included variables and the like are set up centrally for the ports tree, yeah.07:58
ingsocHey07:58
outbackwifi!hi|ingsoc07:58
ubottuingsoc: Hi! Welcome to #ubuntu!07:58
cjsAnyway, BSD folks (except for me) like make, and like to use it fairly badly. I tried to start fixing this around '96, when I joined the NetBSD project, and it will never happen for political reasons.07:58
cjsjamesish, More than just that. Have a look at what's probably in the "mk" directory off the top level of the tree.07:58
jamesishIs your real name Theo De Raadt? ;)07:58
ingsoc... XD any one care to lend ahand with some sound card issues? been going at it for last 14 hours and fianly gave in to ask for some  help07:59
outbackwifimore likely curt sampson07:59
jp91outbackwifi, i went through all the resolutions and some of them are really clear but they are all still zoomed in07:59
cjsAnyway, the other issue, that's anything with the 'standard' binary builds, is that all config files go into /usr/pkg/etc. So you upgrade bind, and your config moves from /etc to /usr/pkg/etc. Then you upgrade NetBSD, upgarding bind again (and removing the package), and your config moves back to /etc. Very annoying.07:59
outbackwifiingsoc: go ahead we'll all try07:59
cjsBut not everything does this; ssh does not, for example.07:59
cjsYes, Curt Sampson.07:59
jamesishYou can't pin it?07:59
cjsI've had dealing with theo, though. :-)07:59
ingsocXD thanks08:00
jp91outbackwifi, the screen moves and follows my mouse when i go to the edge08:00
cjsWell, I do, but you have to rebuild from source. So I can't use the standard binaries. Not such a huge deal now that I have a custom build setup I use for packages for all my servers, but stil....08:00
ingsocIve gone thorugh the comprihenive sound guide and then some. and still cant seem to get my soudn card working08:00
ingsocI followed all instructions to the T and every thing seems to go as they say but still yet.08:01
cjsAnyway, for desktop stuff, I just figured I wanted Flash and Skype and all that stuff working without too many hassles, so here I am.08:01
ingsocI cant get any alsamixer or any type of mixers to open08:01

jamesishK\I've been trying to work out if there's a good way to ask a piece of source what libraries it will need to update. If I can work that out, I'm pretty sure I can make a nice build tool that'll let an abitrary system build software for another abitrary system.08:02
jp91i need an intel driver i think08:02
chilli00back08:02

chilli00i got it guys08:04
jp91outbackwifi what's the command to show me that08:05
outbackwifijp91: you can use gedit to open /etc/X11/xorg.conf (or if you prefer cli, vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf)08:05
cjsSo does getdeb.net do a "repository" that one can add to one's local package manager?08:06

K-4Udrog: Pentium 2, 266 Mhz, 192 MB ram08:22
ikoniaK-4U: thats official, but to be usable, I think you'd be looking at a solid video card with supported drivers and 512 ram08:22

K-4Uim thinking about using openbox as a window manager, but i need a good base08:23
K-4U(no, i do not want to try DSL)08:23
ikoniaK-4U: your lacking ram for ubuntu modern releases to be honest08:23
drogK-4U, I'm trashing 2 systems that are exponentially better, if you want to swing by and pick them up I'd be more than happy to donate adequate hardware to your cause08:23
macoK-4U: you just described my debian system08:24
drogK-4U, you're lacking cpu power and ram for modern software in general08:24
Stupendousstevedrog, modern software runs fine on 233MHz... just depends what you define as modern08:24
K-4Udrog: i already had Xubuntu 8.04 running, with openbox as WM08:25
macoK-4U: i have debian etch (a bit lighter than ubuntu) with enlightenment 17 that i compiled for it08:25

cjsikonia, you can say that about anything: "It's not ubuntu; it's gnome." or whatever.08:58
reeeh2000ziroday: unless it was a ubuntu update, no08:59
cjsThe point is, it seems that in the general case, when I use Ubuntu, I can expect to have a lot of stuff that one doesn't really want to back up in my home dir.08:59
ikoniacjs: firefox would store it's information such as cache in your home directory on linux/windows/mac, so it's nothing to do with ubuntu08:59
Mezcjs: just dont backup dotfiles/folders08:59
cjsFormally, I always just backed up the whole thing daily. Now, I think I probably don't want to do that.09:00
MezWhere would you think user settings should be stored09:00
Mezcjs: and backing up config is VERY useful09:00
gandalfcomeMez: thats what I'm going to do, but this only works if people know that it installs in /opt/.... and that it doesnt just create links. I'm suggesting making it easier for newbies to get new opensource software packages like openoffice. I guess that is one of the widest used opensource packages. well anyway, not having to have a virus scanner and a quick os will hopefully convince her to stay on ubuntu :D09:01
cjsMez, indeed. Keeping it in revision control is even more useful.09:01

Had allot junk installed - this is going to be a simpler install this time, if know what I mean....09:01
gandalfcomeikonia: its not offtopic09:01
z0ranyone here tried to setup mutt with gmail?09:01
cjsAnd actually, a backup containing all one's config, and cache files, and all sorts of other random junk is less useful; it makes things harder to sort out.09:01
ikoniagandalfcome: it is09:01
Mezgandalfcome: yeah, that's the fault of the OOo packagers though. This is why it takes time for ubuntu - quality control. We only opackage stable stuff09:02
gandalfcomeikonia: no.  and i'm not talking to you but to mez.09:02
ikoniagandalfcome: your talking to the channel about it - it's offtopic09:02
cjsAnyway, everybody's real quiet over on the firefox channel; does anybody here have any thoughts on how I can get my firefox bookmarks into revision control? I used to just keep a cleaned-up version of bookmarks.html in subversion.09:03
cjsWell, and other parts of firefox config, too, ideally.09:03
Oricany vim plugin for 'html"?09:03
Mezcjs: FF doesnt use a .html file anymore. It uses sqlite09:03
cjsRight.09:03
cjsHm. Maybe I can dump that db, filter out the history, and keep only the bookmarks?09:04
gandalfcomeMez: I didnt mean including betas or rcs, im talking about the final release (the 13th of oct one). So if OOo would make a ubuntu package you would include it or not?09:04
gandalfcomeMez: Or is it olicy to compile it from source?09:05
velkoz0r, what do you mean by that? mutt does not handle receiving/sending of mail directly. it's just a mail reader/composer/organizer09:05
newlifeziroday: Got the LastFM aptget - looks pretty good - thanks for tip.....09:05
ikoniagandalfcome: ubuntu developers will package the software they believe it stable for you09:05
Mezgandalfcome: It's policy for it to be compiled from source on our buildds... so a debian packager or an ubuntu packager has to make a package, ubuntu specific patches have to be applied, etc etc. PLUS, intrepid is near release. We froze a month ago. Please, feel free to go consult the developer documentation09:06

MrD1Hi and good morning to every one. A few questions if you dont mind. I have ubuntu 8.04 will it update to the new version 8.10 on its own when its stable. or do i have to reinstall ubuntu again, also if i download 8.10 now on a other computer when its stable will it update as well and last question sorry, i installed 8.04 on a pc and after boot it has starange lines all over the screen lots of questions sorry09:28
rdw200169gidna: the master volume (or PCM volume) might be low09:28
zirodayhharvey: you might wnat to read this https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RestrictedFormats09:28
rdw200169gidna: they're usually related09:28
jelleikonia, what does the alternatives folder do exactly?09:28
rdw200169gidna: and the volume applet on the taskbar will only adjust one of them09:29
gidnaat Sound preferences?09:29
ikoniajelle: map versions to commands eg: you could have 4 vesions of java installed, this tells you which to use, or if you have sendmail/postfix/exim installed it will say which mta to use09:29
defryskdoubleclick the volume applet to fix it09:29
zirodayMrD1: answer to your first few is that yes, when the new release of ubuntu comes out you can update to it09:29
rdw200169gidna: yeah, just double click the speaker icon on the taskbar09:29
MrD1ziroday, thank you09:30
rdw200169gidna: and make sure all the appropriate volume levels are up09:30
jelleikonia, that makes it even more clear why it failed, netbeans suddenly added java5 to my system, and probably changed it there09:30

ikoniasysk: you shouldn't need to09:59
defryskcjs: unselect is in sessions09:59
velkodevslashnull, if you don't compile the kernel or kernel modules you can deinstall the kernel source packages (which installed these folders)09:59
cjsWow, that's pretty hash. (The apt-get remove, I mean.)09:59
rdw200169cjs; that gets rid of anything that has to do with that application09:59

jp91tab_shift i still need the latest release of xorg from somewhere?10:00
rdw200169cjs i got rid of it ages ago10:00
ikoniadevslashnull: I find that very dubious, as it should say 8.04.1 release10:00
velkodevslashnull, this was ikonia's question. i don't care about it. i was asking you something completely different10:00
jayanany idea about configuring Exchange 2007 with Evolution10:01
rdw200169cjs: unless you do a lot of wireless roaming, it's kinda pointless10:01
tab_shiftjp91: XORG releases are very far stretched, you'll need to try the bete/testing version LIVEcd , copy the image to a usb drive etc10:01
velkoikonia, obviously he has the preinstalled version on the eee pc. maybe customized ubuntu install10:01

cjsRight. Well, off it is. Had to kill the thing, too.10:02
tab_shiftjayan: just configure imap and youare goog to go10:02

jp91i don't know what that webpage wants me to do tab_shift, this is way over my head now10:03
cjsI don't see any obvious setting in the xchat config; is this a gnome thing of some sort?10:03

velkodevslashnull, if this is the case you can deinstall trough synaptic/apt-get/aptitude the kernel sources or headers. be careful not to remove the kernel image itself though ;-)10:04

znikmy trackpad is not working properly.However when i connect an external mouse then the cursor works properly. what should i do?10:06
velkodevslashnull, do you know how to use synaptic? my suggestion is to use it for deinstallation instead of randomly deleting folders10:06
d0c5i5are there any other "start' menu's besides the ubuntu "native" menu and the "vista/xp" clone that are worth looking into? i'm not thrilled with the default ubuntu one, and the vista/xp one is basically a image with links (it's not very modular).... just fishing for ideas on how to make it more relevant10:06
rdw200169cjs: http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=93110:06
cjsSwitching to and learning a whole new IRC program to fix one small problem seems overkill.10:07
cjsAfter all, I encounter another small problem there, and I'll just have to switch again. :-/10:07
rdw200169cjs: so many options, darn this linux!10:07
cjsI'm thinking that this is probably gnome-related, since it didn't happen to me on my NetBSD+fvwm1 system.10:08

alanbshepard77Dr_Willis: I'm performing a make uninstall now and then I'll try installing the binary packages.10:49
falstaffMr Lou there are several file manager applications for linux system PC man in system tools is good.10:50
cafuegoalanbshepard77: if you do source installs, at the very least run them through `checkinstall'.10:51
mr_loufalstaff: Yea, I could have just looked in the About popup. I just needed to do a sudo nautilus. Being used to thunar from Arch Linux.10:51
werscan i use a gif as a wallpaper?:)10:51
alanbshepard77cafuego: Thanks for the suggestion but to be honest I have no idea what that is :-/10:52
falstaffMr lou also if you go to places you can use the folder browser to move file from folder to folder.10:52
cafuegoalanbshepard77: It records what 'make install' does and packagaes the installed files into a .deb for easy management.10:54
falstaffbut why can't get myspace to recognise my username and password??10:54

rockyrockhey guys, I want a C/C++ IDE. I don't have a lot of RAM in my laptop (256) so plz consider the memory consuming.11:12
ikoniaor ##c++11:12
magnetronnewlife→ read the link ubottu gave you11:12
ikoniarockyrock: eclipse is the one most people go for, but it will run slow with 25611:12
ikoniarockyrock: most people with 256/less dont use an ide11:12
rockyrockikonia: yeah i know that's why i'm asking11:12
newlifemagnetron: Will do - have it bookmarked - thanks - so much to learn - so little time - heh heh11:12
FueledI have just installed Ubuntu 8.04, with a previous installation of Windows XP. I want to dual-boot. I can start Ubuntu just fine, but I have the "Hal.dll" problem when trying to start Windows. I have searched on Google for answers, but since I'm super new to Ubuntu, most are too cryptic for me. I need tailored help :-(11:12
magnetronrockyrock→ some use Anjuta, but i haven't tried it11:12
rockyrockikonia: what about anjuta11:13
ikoniarockyrock: try it11:13
WildSoftWhen installing Ubuntu, you get the option to change the size of your patition for dual-boot. This fails for some reason and gives me an error message. Sizechange failed.11:13
klimymagnetron: somehow file just tells me that my file is a tex file. actually i knew that ;)11:13
ikoniaFueled: that error is normally (not normally) associated with the windows partition not being defragged/chkdisked before partitioning for the ubuntu install11:13
ikoniaFueled: using the windows repair cd will normally fix it11:13
rockyrocki would like to use gcc to compile the C files but i doesn't show any errors if the code contains errors! Does it?11:14
Jaguar48hthnx11:14
Fueledikonia: I did a Defrag just before installing Ubuntu, like suggetsed11:14
ikoniarockyrock: of course it does11:14
ikoniarockyrock: it shows warnings11:14
klimymagnetron: can you give me a hint? i looked at man but did not find the parameter i needed11:14
magnetronklimy→ ok, then it's probably a TeX file. what more do you want to know about it?11:14
ikoniarockyrock: it's a compiler11:14
ikoniaFueled: thats the normal cause11:14
velkoWildSoft, i'm not very familiar with this but maybe you have to boot first into windows and defragment the partition you are trying to resize11:14
klimymagnetron: encoding.11:14
DanskmandI have installed with apt-get the kernel-headers and the restricted modules....then I copied the Fritz drivers to "/usr/src/AVM-Fritz/fcpci-3.11.07" and executed the make in there.

klimyis there some neat tool that does some guessing of file encodings?11:15
magnetronklimy→ by default, text files in ubuntu are encoded utf-811:15
Fueledikonia: but I'm not able to edit it from within Ubuntu11:16
klimymagnetron: i downloaded the file. it is not utf811:16
ikoniaFueled: possible, you need to boot ubuntu, mount your windows partition and look at the file11:16
ikoniaFueled: you should be able to11:16
velkoWildSoft, maybe the partitions you resized successfully wasn't badly fragmented? just a guess though11:16
