ethana2What is the recommended way to get a working java firefox plugin on 8.10?00:10
ethana2I think it asked me about it once, and i ignored it that time00:10
wgrantethana2: Find a Java site. Click install.00:10

wgrantWhy not use the OpenJDK one?00:11
ethana2wgrant: okay, how do i do that?00:11
copprobecause a) sun's is almost entirely free anyways and b) sun's works better00:11
wgrantIt's even in main.00:12
wgranticedtea6-plugin00:12
wgrantUbufox should tell you to install it when you go to a Java-using website.00:12
wgrantAnd Sun's rarely works better now.00:12
ethana2wgrant, it did i ignored it00:12
ethana2it didn't say it would never let me use that dialog again00:12
wgrantIt should ask you each time..00:13
* ethana2 install icedtea6-plugin00:13
ethana2it should00:13
ethana2...odd that it doesn't00:13

ethana2Those are 'suggested'00:14
ethana2*facepalm*00:14
ethana2yeah, those are dependencies.00:14
ethana2if you want things to not not-work, you need those00:14
filo1234ethana2: ?? so you have icedtea or sun-java-plugin??00:15
ethana2i'm installing icedtea now00:15

ethana2in fact, that's probably all i can do for either of you00:44
ethana28.10 isn't out yet, it has bugs, you've run into them00:44
ethana2be sure they have been reported00:44
ethana2for workarounds, you'll need somebody who knows more than i do00:45
ballzeeill go baCK to 8.04 i guess wish i could uninstall this00:46
DanaGHmm, is there anything about the wifi card in /etc/network/interfaces?00:46
ethana2always have two installs00:46
DanaGThere shouldn't be anythign there.00:46
ethana2I had a borked intrepid in a dual boot for a while00:46
ethana2I'm going to keep 8.04.1 for quite some time along side intrepid00:46
ethana2maybe even beside jaunty00:46
ballzeeim not dual booting for anything00:47
keanuI've found one small bug and one possible bug00:47
ethana2yeah, i used to do that too, but i learned my lesson00:47
keanuXChat cleared the network list, which I'm thinking is a possible bug00:47
ethana2keanu: can you reproduce it?00:47
ballzeetakes under an houre to install i didnt waste much time00:48
keanuand when disabling the touchpad, the mouse can still move if started in the top right corner00:48
lacquii've decided to virtualize instead of dual booting00:48
keanuethana2, what am I testing?00:48
keanujust closing xchat and restarting?00:48
ethana2keanu: whatever triggered the buggy behavior00:48
ethana2if you can describe how to see the bug so someone else can verify it00:48
ethana2it'll make it easier to get it fixed00:48
keanuethana2, I installed about 100 updates and restarted my computer =/00:48
keanuI'll try restarting xchat, in case it isn't saving the settings properly00:49
ethana2'running updates' isn't very helpful as a description of what triggered behavior unless you know package names00:49
zumeI see there is #kubuntu-offtopic, but does ubuntu have an offtopic room?00:49
ethana2zume: yes.00:49
ethana2..i think00:49
zumeethana2: Wow apparently it does. Cool beans.00:50
charlie-tcazume: Ubuntu would be #ubuntu-offtopic00:51
zumecharlie-tca: yea i found it thanks :P00:51
ethana2i think i'll expand the rule i made for myself00:52
ethana2from no checking for updates less than 6 hours after checking previously..  up to 800:52
copproI have it on cron00:52
ethana2heh00:53
copproand yet still insist on checking every half hour or so00:53
coppro:/00:53
ethana2yeah, i had to stop myself from doing that00:53
ethana2that's exactly why i made that rule00:53
ethana2to not go all OCD on update-manager00:53
copprohmm... actually, I should add pbuilder and chroot updates to the cron script00:53
copprothere done00:55
copproheh, I don't use update-manager even00:55
ethana2i have a 'check-update' and an 'update' command in my .bashrc00:56
ethana2I also have a remove function that moves files into the trash directory00:56
ethana2english words like 'unmount' 'get' 'list' 'enter' 'murder', etc..00:56
ethana2One should be able to support Ubuntu CLI with voice00:57
prometheanfireI saw that the nvidia driver in ibex doesnt work with newer nvidia cards (9800gt specificly)00:57
ethana2sudo apt-get ...  isn't english, and it confuses grandmothers and such00:57
copprolol00:57
ethana2coppro: you laugh, but if your grandma goes from using nothing to using ubuntu, and you need to provide support, you need all the simplicity you can get00:59
copproethana2: you have your grandma using the console?00:59
ethana2she's not likely to use IM, so you can count on needing to be able to provide support over the phone.00:59
ethana2coppro: Sometimes you just can't remember every odd menu option, tab, and button00:59
copproethana2: true00:59
copproalthough you're already one step ahead of me01:00
copprohaving convinced your grandmother to use linux01:00
ethana2coppro: but I'll be sure to set up remote desktop and such before I declare the machine 'ready'01:00
keanuethana2, did a reboot, and the network i added still stayed there01:00
keanuthe other default ones are gone though01:00
mib5I have a vague ibex problem. everything stutters. from the intro audio when ibex loads, to any music or video i play back01:01
mib5both audio and video makes me think it's not a soundcard or a video driver problem01:01
ethana2mib5: how is CPU usage when it does?01:01
mib51 sec i'll check01:01
keanuit isn't a big deal, just thought I'd make it known01:02
mib5ethana2: very high, but not pegged, doesn't seem to go over 60%, also mem usage never leaves +10%01:02
ethana2dual core?01:03
mib5no.01:03
ethana2...interesting....01:03
mib5oh thank you :) lol01:03
ethana2see, a dual core can choke without going over 60% ;)01:03
mib5i figured that was the idea :)01:04
ethana2so it peaks and stutters at the same time, right?01:04
mib5also, same issue with compiz disabled, if you were going to ask01:04
ethana2or jumps, rather i guess01:04
mib5yes, peaks and stutters at the same time, or jumps.. slowly01:04
ethana2perhaps not enough data is being written to the sound buffer by the audio system to provide seamless playback under normal usage01:05
mib5oh this is interesting, i found a way to make it just do it with the audio but have the video be ok01:05
mib5maybe it is an audio problem01:05
dystopiahow to i use inittab to set up serial console client on ubuntu?01:05
mib500:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc IXP SB4x0 High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)  <-- :)01:05
mib5Yes, an audio thing. I remember in hardy i had to adjust an alsa config file with a certain line, like options mode=auto or something similar01:07
keithclarkI'm running 8.10 with an ATI Xpress 200 graphics card along with the proprietary drivers but I cannot get Compiz to work.  In Appearance, Visual Effects, Extra it just says that The Desktop Effects Could Not Be Enabled.  Any thoughts on what to adjust/change to enable them?  They worked fine under 8.04.101:07
mib5keithclark: compiz --replace & <- in term and tell me output01:08

nonniiCan someone tell me, is there still known issues with gdm-guest-session, because it's not working for me. It starts new session nicely at vt9 but nothing comes up. The screen just stays brownish orange (the ubuntu colour I guess). I see that no gnome-session or anything is started for guest user, only x-window-manager or something such, can not remember now. Could try it again though.01:09

moobagif i install the 8.10 release candidate, will i have to do a full re-install to get the full version or will it update to the full release?01:11
ethana2it'll just update01:11
esachow can i modify the configuration of the guest account? for example having firefox automatically come up, or disable certain apps ?01:11
moobaglike, update through the desktop or will i have to download it and install the update through cd ?01:12
mib5keithclark: your drivers aren't working properl, please pastebin your /var/log/Xorg.0.log , although i;m guessing you'll have to reinstall the drivers.01:12
mib5keithclark: also, may i ask why you're using the proprietary driver? my x200 works fine with the opensource one01:13
nonniimoobag: it'll update normally from the desktop01:13
keithclarkUbuntu chose to do that01:13
moobagawesome, thanks a lot :]01:13
mib5... no it doesn't. you have to specifically ask for it, ubuntu never chooses to install a proprietary anything iirc01:13
keithclarkmib5, upon upgrade to 8.10 I tried to enable the Extra Video Effects and it came back with a window saying to install the graphics driver via the Hardware Drivers in Administration01:15

moobagare there many compatability issues between 64 and 32 bit versions?  I have a core2 with 2gb so id like to make the most of it and get the fastest ubuntu i can...01:27
mib5keithclark: ok, honestly this looks like a bug, i can probably fix it but it will probably happen to others. my suggestion is #compiz-fusion for a temp fix and possibly file a bug report if you get the same results after uninstalling / reinstalling the drivers through jockey01:27
moobagbut i dont want any more troubles01:27
keithclarkmib5, yes, results have already been duplicated through reinstalling.01:28
moobagso is it worth getting x64 or should i just stick with 32 for the safety?01:29
mib5i don't want to say this prematurely, but that's probably bad :/ is this an upgrade of ibex or new install?01:29
mib5keithclark: actually, here's a dumb question, you didn't use xgl on 8.04 did you?01:30
RAOFmoobag: I (mostly) don't have problems with x86-64.01:30
keithclarkmib5, Yes01:30
keithclarkmib5, I had no issues with compiz in 8.0401:31
moobaghaha what do you mean mostly? is it worth switching?01:32

nonniimoobag: install 64bit using separate / and /home and try it out. If it doesn't work out for you, install 32bit over your /01:37

chadeldridgeif you help with regression testing and applicatnion testing for them like I am you can become an advocate and get it free .. but you have to actually put in work for them01:57

chadeldridgei gladly pay them for it though, its well worth it to see them continue01:57
moobagif i wanna use it for games etc though01:57

chuxxssslet not get into which one is best moobag it like cars02:00
moobagoh yeah i know but for money/effort etc02:01
chadeldridgecrossover seems much easier to me .. but thats just imo02:01
moobagyou have to renew crossover after a year or you stop getting updates02:02
chuxxssshow do I use it if wine is install chadeldridge02:02
nonniiI tried wine once, notepad wouldn't start so I removed it. I really have no need :P02:03
chuxxsssit not showing up02:03
thatguyso i upgraded and for some reason my sound stopped working.  Oddly enough i used to have this problem and it was fixed when i upgraded to 8.0402:03
chadeldridgechuxxsss : there are some guides around google on installing office 2007 on wine .. its not easy though, so good luck on that one02:03
xxploitnonnii: well if you look at the cedega forums anytime...the users always come off disgruntled with the their support and also unless things have changed cedega used to be subscription based, like 5$ a month i think. Plus I dont think they contribute anything back upstream to wine where as crossover does.02:03
chadeldridgexxploit: exactly right02:04

chuxxsssI havent got a autorun program when I place the disc in02:08
chuxxssshelp02:09
chadeldridgechuxxsss:  you wont in linux02:09
xxploitchuxxsss: id imagine that is listed in the supported apps whereas you can just click to install it? I've never used it for MS Office since I use Open Office. But crossover should be able to install it without a prob, you should join #crossover for any questions you have02:09
tsedreytHey guys, I've been on beta for a while now, no problems...until today when I dled the RC updates and now I have no sound. Anyone else have this problem?02:09
chuxxsssxxploit, thanks and it's not under 8.1002:09
webmarenjust ran the latest batch of upgrades and my monitor reverted to 800x60002:10
chadeldridgetsedreyt:  i think that is a known bug i saw posted earlier02:10
tsedreytyeah? so I'm not alone/ didn't do anything bad?02:10
xxploitchuxxsss: when you install crossover it places menu entrys for you, goto Install Software then in the list it should have Ms Office etc02:10
thatguytsedreyt: i have the same problem02:11
tsedreytchadeldridge: that's at least a little bit comforting...02:11
trigpinto upgrade just sudo apt-get dist upgrade ?02:11
U236Willyi had hardware drivers keep telling me to get the proprietary nvidia 71.?? drivers.. so i did... and it borked kdm02:11
tsedreytthatguy: haha kind of ironic, I deleted my windows partition today, and I switch back to linux...no sound02:12
chadeldridgetrigpin :  sudo update-manager -d  i think02:12
U236Willyi ended up using a tty and logging in and reverting the xorg.conf which worked but it's still not perfect.02:12
thatguytsedreyt: well this has happened to me before, i couldn't play sound before 7.10 and 8.04 kept constant02:12
trigpinchadeldridge,  ah thanks thats it02:12
thatguymy computer has always had sound issues as it is02:12
tsedreytwell I had sound on the beta until about 4 hours ago02:13
tsedreytdo you know what card you have?02:13
thatguyoh i just upgraded from 7.1002:13
thatguyno02:13
thatguyhow do i check if i'm in beta or rc?02:14
chuxxsssno one is answering in crossover maybe they have crossover already02:14
chadeldridgechuxxsss:  do you need to download crossover ?02:14
tsedreytI'm at that awkward stage in my linux career where I know how to do everything, but I never know what to do....02:15
chadeldridgechuxxsss: http://www.codeweavers.com/products/02:15
tsedreytits like being a teenager...02:15
thatguyi'm at the novice stage where i need to learn how to use my terminal other than irssi and how to configure pidgin02:15
chuxxssschadeldridge,  I have it is now installed autorun not install it is telling me but it said that in wine first under 8.1002:15
chadeldridgetsedryt:  break things and fix them02:15
thatguyso tsedreyt how to i check if i'm in rc or beta?02:15
tsedreytpretty much if you've upgraded your system today02:16
moobagim really struggling to choose between 32 and 64 bit versions of 8.1002:16
tsedreytyou are in RC02:16
moobaghelpp02:16
IsTI37Who is using ibex right now ? , it works or it is just like 8.04 , you need to set manually everything which should work ?02:16
xxploitchuxxsss: youll most likely need to install it using crossover, not the autorun program02:16
webmareni <3 linux, one step fix for my graphics issue02:16
chuxxsssI am02:16
chuxxsssIsTI37, I am02:16
U236Willyit works mostly well02:16
thatguytsedreyt: i started the upgrade yesterday though02:16
chadeldridgechuxxsss:  applications - crossover - install windows products - select office 2007 from the list - specify where the setup.exe file is on the cd - click go02:16
thatguyand i think it was an hour or two before rc was released02:17
U236Willyonly a few issues02:17
tsedreytupgrade again02:17
IsTI37chuxxsss I suppose that you don't have problems with the network02:17

nkei0I right click on it and it gives me the option to play with "media player" and it doesn't work either02:18
tsedreytthe problem with 32 is that it can only handle 3.7 gb of ram02:18
IsTI37try to install windows media player firefox plugin02:18
thatguymplayerplug-in?02:19
chadeldridgenkei0:  just install vlc02:19
tsedreytvlc is basically the answer for anything movie related02:19
xxploittsedreyt: yes it is!02:19
chadeldridgesadly .. it seems to be .. mplayer / totem are just meh02:19
tsedreytI uninstall them pretty quickly02:20
IsTI37chadeldridge: I have vlc and I have the same problem as him, the answer is to install the vlc firefox plugin...02:20
tsedreytanyone else loose sound with the RC?02:20
chadeldridgei just played it .. so i would assume so02:20
nkei0chadeldridge: I just did.02:20
trigpinnkei0, do not think it you im having problems watching to likly site , why you want to watch celling painting secrets would be like watching paint dry heh02:21

tsedreytI will be getting there very shortly, don't even worry about it02:23
thatguymplayerplug-in02:23
tsedreytbut usually I like to do that with music, so I must fix my sound first!02:23
IsTI37nkei0 just try synaptic , combine vlc with firefox = vlc firefox and you should find the mozilla-plugin-vlc plugin02:23

tsedreytoh you know02:38
chadeldridgereally wireless issue still ?  mine is finally working out of box with no wrapper02:38
tsedreytthe part where they don't work02:38
Hobbseego with intel.  no more problem.02:38
Hobbseemine have worked for ages.02:38
chadeldridgebroadcom is the intel bastard stepchild though and they dont work well in ubuntu02:38
tsedreytI won my laptop...and as nice as that was, I didn't get to configure it, but its not bad except for atheros card02:38
chadeldridgeohh god02:38
chadeldridgeatheros are a pita to get working .. have you tried ndiswrapper and the windows driver ?02:39
tsedreytI swear, I have like 9 drivers installed on my hd02:39
chadeldridgelol02:39
tsedreytand yes, I have.02:39
chadeldridgei was like that with my original broadcom until i learned of fwcutter02:39
chadeldridgei guess ilovegnulinux got fixed .. lol02:40
tsedreytsupposedly the lwlwifi was supposed to be the gift of man to wireless02:40
nonniican anyone here help me with gdm-guest-session, because it is not working for me. The new session starts to vt10 (my normal user is at vt9) but the screen stays brownish orange. No gnome-session is started for the guest session, only x-window-manager and d-bus02:40
tsedreytthat worked great...02:40
chadeldridgenever heard of it actually02:41
Hobbseechadeldridge: broadcom always was a pain.  they don't opensource their stuff.02:41
Hobbseeor at least, didn't.  not sure about now02:41
chadeldridgehobbsee .. yeah i found out the really hard way02:41
Hobbseechadeldridge: stay away from marvell chipsets too, as a hint :P02:42
chadeldridgei broke down and just bought a new internal card for the laptop .. an intel02:42
Hobbseehaha, smart.02:42
ad_hey is the 64-bit beta pretty stable now?02:42
chadeldridgebest 50$ ever02:42
tsedreytyes02:42
tsedreytit is02:42
Hobbseei bought an atheros card for the other laptop.  worked a charm.02:42
Hobbseeonly used it up to edgy, though, iirc.02:42
chadeldridgead_ I am installing it on another machine right now, but i would assume its as stable as any 64 bit ubuntu relase02:42

tsedreytso I just configured my panel to what I wanted02:55
chadeldridgei always had my panel setup to look exactly like a dock so it wasnt a hard stretch02:56

EyesOfARavenprint as in to paper?03:27
bigfoxYes03:27
EyesOfARavenit should wrap to your linux drivers03:27
EyesOfARavenassuming the printer works under linux03:27
chadeldridgebigfox yes it should by default03:27
EyesOfARavenubuntu 8.1 desktop edition should have a desktop environment03:27

EyesOfARavenshot in the dark: try running ur app from a terminal that wont make sound with "padsp <your app>"03:36
mneptokadmin_masu3701: open a terminal and type "killall pulseaudio" (no quotes) and then try YouTube again.03:36
EyesOfARavenbecause pulse-audio tends to phail :p03:37
tsedreytokay question03:37
bigfoxMaybe its because I am using the development version of wine from the winehq repo.03:37
crimsunwell, before we blame pulseaudio, we need to know which arch s/he's using and whether s/he has flashplugin-nonfree and libasound2-plugins installed03:37
tsedreytI goto sound prefecnes03:37
bigfoxI will change to the one in the ubuntu repo.03:37
mneptokcrimsun: gnash won;t even display YT videos, never mind deal with audio tracks for them03:38
tsedreytand its on autodetect, I press the test button, and it says "audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink: Failed to connect: Connection refused"03:38
saxonjftse, I have the same problem, but no sound at all03:39
crimsunmneptok: you may have more knowledge about admin_masu3701's issue; does s/he have gnash, adobe-flashplugin or flashplugin-nonfree installed?03:39
tsedreytI've got no sound at all either03:39
tsedreytsaxon when did that start for you03:39
saxonjfright after I upgraded03:39
tsedreyttoday?03:39
mneptokcrimsun: i am assuming since the problem was described as non-functional audio that the video is viewable. that requires flashplugin-nonfree.03:39
saxonjfupgrade ---> no sound03:39
crimsuntsedreyt: ah, I bet you're hitting the pulseaudio/canberra-gtk-play race03:39

tsedreytoh god, my inner newb is showing,....how do I do that?03:44
admin_masu3701mneptok: it aint working03:44
crimsuntsedreyt: another method is to further alter the order in which pulseaudio is started during GNOME session login03:45
crimsuntsedreyt: do what?03:45
mneptokadmin_masu3701: then PulseAudio is probably not the issue. how did you install Flash?03:45
tsedreytokay how would I alter the order?03:46
wgrantOh no, it's mneptok.03:46
chuxxssschadeldridge,  what a waste of money crossover is03:46
crimsuntsedreyt: well, the easiest method is simply to rename the file03:46
tsedreytcrimsum: I'd hate to have you walk me through all this, seeing as I am completely lost, is there a guide you could point me to?03:47
admin_masu3701mnptok: oh yet...i was having flash problem for a while...i didnt know how to install it...but after it didnt ask me to download flash03:47
chadeldridgechuxxsss:  i told you about 20 times that there was no diff between trial version and full, plus there is about 10000 pages of documentation on that site you ignored.  There was no point in buying it if trial did not work03:48
mneptokadmin_masu3701: in a terminal, "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras" (no quotes)03:48
crimsuntsedreyt: sorry, no guide, but it's fairly straightforward:  sudo mv /etc/X11/Xsession.d/70pulseaudio /etc/X11/Xsession.d/59pulseaudio03:48
crimsuntsedreyt: please log out of GNOME and back in to test.03:48

crimsunsaxonjf: great04:46
chowmeinedwhy is libata so broken when driving PATA controllers (specifically intel ones).. didnt anybody notice the whole 4MB/s throughput?04:46
saxonjfcimsun, is there some place I can write a testimonial for you or something.  I feel indebted.04:46
chowmeinednot only is it broken now, but its been broken since edgy eft04:46
crimsunchowmeined: seriously, these are questions best posed to either the ubuntu-devel-discuss mailing list or the #ubuntu-kernel channel04:46
chowmeinedcrimsun, they dont listen04:46
chowmeinedobviously04:46
chowmeinedi just would like somebody to bash their face in for being retarded04:47
saxonjfDo you have an ubuntu wiki page where I can praise you or something?04:47
crimsunsaxonjf: no need, just enjoy your 8.10 configuration04:47
chowmeinedcrimsun, to be fair, ive already been through the bug reports04:47
saxonjfcrimsun, you went way above and beyond the call of duty, and I wish I could express some appreciation04:47
chowmeinedcrimsun, people report.. and the only responses are meta-messages from the bug tracking system04:47
crimsunchowmeined: have you considered purchasing a support contract?04:48
chowmeinedcrimsun, why would i do that?04:48
chowmeinedim not spending money on something that cant even get ATA support right (though to be fair thats not ubuntu's fault but the buggy libata implementation in the linux kernel)04:49
chowmeinedas usual, ill probably have to fix it myself04:49
DanaGcrimsun: I meant package.04:49
crimsunchowmeined: I empathize with the frustration, but venting here is unlikely to accomplish anything for 8.10.04:50
chowmeinedcrimsun, im aware of this04:50
sebsebsebis KDE3  available for  Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex from the rep, it does not seem to be available04:50
chowmeinedits too late to really do anything anyways04:50
crimsunDanaG: perhaps ping in #ubuntu-x sometime after 8.10's release?04:50
saxonjfthanks again04:50
sebsebsebrepo04:50
crimsunsaxonjf: yw04:50
chowmeinedits not like they are going to fix a bug thats been around since edgy in the next hmm 6 days04:51
crimsunchowmeined: precisely04:51
chowmeinedcrimsun, exactly04:51

jdsbluedevlhi, I'm experiencing an issue with the NVIDIA X server.  On startup, it gives me a smaller resolution (not sure if it's 800x600 or 1024x768), but I have to manually change it to 1280x1024.  When I try to save the configuration, the NVIDIA X server settings program crashes.  It keeps the resolution for the session, but when I reboot I have to do it all over again04:52
jdsbluedevlis this a known issue?04:52
crimsunDanaG: even opengl.org?04:53

nekostarbut that dpkg-reconfigure is nice too to get everything .. /me shrugs05:44
EyesOfARaventhe problem is i dont know the original one05:44
noaxiit's fixed in the most recent kernel .. so I'd think whenever it's recompiled and added to repository05:44
EyesOfARavenor i'd just do that05:44

prometheanfirehmmm, 64bit 8.04 supported the cards but I cannot get it working in 32bit 8.1006:19
dr_willissounds like driver/version/kernel issues.06:20
dr_willis8.10 offered 2 different nvidia drivers in the  restricted drivers config tool for my laptop.. perhaps you need tot ry the other driver?06:20
prometheanfireas far as I know only 177 supports the 9000 series cards06:21
dr_willisbut wasent the older ubuntu not using 177?06:21
dr_willisI cant keep up with version #'s and the latest cards..  Im too poor. :)06:22
prometheanfireI think it was using nvidia-glx-new which was really an older version of 17706:22

noaxisurvive06:23
dr_willisnoaxi,  for now.. I work for Chrysler.. so we dont know whats going to happen.06:23
prometheanfirenow I cannot remove the 177 driver to install xserver-xorg-core (xserver wants to overwrite a file that is provided by the 177 driver that is already installed)06:23

frybyeHi - how to add gweather??06:41
|Cyb3rPunk|i still got no luck with this " Session^options "06:43
|Cyb3rPunk|maybe someone can help me with the next step on my list how can i make my user acount have root permisson06:44
dr_willissudo adduser billgates06:45
dr_willis:)06:45
|Cyb3rPunk|thats a joke right06:45
dr_willisOh wait.. you want to set up a user with root  privilages..06:45
dr_willisone alters the sudoers and groups for that.. but  i forget how.06:46
dr_willisThere was some GUI tool for it also.06:46
|Cyb3rPunk|i have a user account but want to be able to edit a file in root but dont want to have to go out and login as root06:46
dr_willis|Cyb3rPunk|,  if its the first initial user, you would use the sudo command. If that user does not have sudo rights. then you need to give them sudo rights.06:46
frybyedr_willis: looks like he dosent know about sudo etc.. or?06:47
|Cyb3rPunk|how do i do that?06:47
|Cyb3rPunk|kinda new to linux06:47
dr_willis<dr_willis> one alters the sudoers and groups for that.. but  i forget how.06:47
DanaGsudo adduser username groupname06:47
dr_willisso you no longer have your initial user you made during install?06:47
DanaGadmin group will give sudo priveliges.06:47
dr_willisah admin group. :) thats it..06:48
|Cyb3rPunk|i have my inatial user acoutn i'm in it now06:48
DanaGer, misspelled 'privileges'.  Yeah, I am obsessive-compulsive about my own spelling, but not about others'.06:48
dr_willis|Cyb3rPunk|,  then you should be able to do a 'sudo nano /file/to/edit' and edit somthing as root06:48
frybyecan sbdy tell me where the applets are in intrepid?? - I am trying to add the gweather applet but cant find it...?06:48
DanaGTry adding a location to the clock applet.06:49
DanaGClock applet does weather.06:49
|Cyb3rPunk|no easer way to do that so i can point and click :D06:49
frybyethanks DanaG06:49
|Cyb3rPunk|like i said new06:49
chowmeinedis it possible to continue t he boot process after getting dropped to initramfs shell?06:49
chowmeinedi fixed the issue06:49
DanaGctrl-d06:49
dr_willisTheres some user admin tools in the menus.06:49
DanaGexits shell.06:49
chowmeinedthanks06:49
DanaGIt works in other places, too -- ctrl-d gives EOF (End Of File).06:50
chowmeineder, it just says the same error again06:50
jameswfwhen i try to install a os X widget it silently fails....06:50
chowmeinedbut the error is untrue06:50
chowmeinedit says /dev/hda1 doesnt exist, except it does, and i just mounted it06:50
DanaGOdd.06:50
chowmeinedbusybox is a liar!06:50

dr_willisbusybox is like a whole OS in one little app. :) its amazing what it can do.06:51
esachow do i modify x settings now that xorg.conf is gone ? I need to set nvidia option DPI 96x96 on my system06:52
digdugdr_willis: vista's scan disk found errors in the master file table on that drive, not sure if that fixed it or not, I still have to reboot again06:52
|Cyb3rPunk|think i give up...06:53
DanaGFew displays are actually 96 DPI... many are 86 or 99 or something.06:53
chowmeinedoh well, i guess ill just do it manually06:53
dr_willis|Cyb3rPunk|,   whats the exact issue? Im missing somthing here.. or you are...06:53
esacDanaG, on 8.04 i set it to 96x96 and it looked just fine. whatever the default was, some objects were scaled the wrong size until i did so.06:53
DanaG!google javascript dpi calculator06:54
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)06:54
dr_willissudo adduser username groupname, using the admin group as 'groupname' but your Original user is allready in the admin group06:54
DanaGYou should set it to the actual DPI of the display.06:54
DanaGif the fonts are too big...... change the font size, not the DPI setting.06:54
esacok but that still doesnt answer my question. how do i do so if xorg.conf is gone ?06:54
DanaGYou can do that in the Gnome appearance properties: the fonts tab, "Details..." button.06:54
|Cyb3rPunk|Well i want to edit the folder for amsn and have total admin rights. i also hate having to reopen and load my programs u every time i login so want them to open as sone as i login06:55
dr_willisedit the folder? in what way? one normally edits files, not folders..   Your initial user has 'sudo' rights. and can do root tasks with the sudo  or gksudo commands.06:55
predator3631was i suposed to uninstall wine before i installed cedaga?06:56
|Cyb3rPunk|well want to add files and addon  to the folder but don't know how to realy use termanal06:56
dr_willisas for the 2nd part.. the gnome sessions   settings are some wherein the menus. I saw them yesterday.. but im not on gnome at the moment so cant tell you exactly where they are at.06:56
dr_willis|Cyb3rPunk|,  i tend to cheat and isntall 'mc' and use 'sudo mc' so i have a terminalbased file manager i run as root. :)06:56
dr_willisit is worth while to learn the shell.06:57
dr_willisbut mc is very very veyr very handy to have/learn also06:57
|Cyb3rPunk|i'm thinking soo now06:57
dr_willismc is a good comprimize :)06:57
dr_willis!info mc06:57

|Cyb3rPunk|is there a book or a somthing for dummies06:57
dr_willisTheres literally 1000;'s of linux bookx and books/sites on learning the shell06:57
dr_willis!shell06:58
ubottuThe linux terminal or command-line interface is very powerful. Open a terminal via Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (Gnome) or K-menu -> System -> Konsole (KDE).  Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal06:58
dr_willismost 'dummies' books seemto focus on just walking you through/exploring the GUI.. YOu can do that without a book06:58
dr_willislaunch every settings app and look at the options06:58
legend2440|Cyb3rPunk|: open system>preferences>startup programs and enter programs you want to start at login. at least thats how it is in hardy. i don't have intrepid installed right now06:59
esacwhere do i make changes to x settings now that xorg.conf is gone ?06:59
legend2440|Cyb3rPunk|: sorry i mean   open system>preferences>sessions>startup programs and enter programs you want to start at login. at least thats how it is in hardy. i don't have intrepid installed right now07:00
dr_willis|Cyb3rPunk|,  theres also a setting/check box somewhere to auto save sessions so when you logout - it will rember/restart any  apps you had open. but that can cause.. issues at times..07:00

digdugdang it, didn't work, drive still isn't visible07:18
digdugI even unplugged my card reader which was showing up as /dev/sdc, then plugged in my external drive into that usb port07:18
digdugit does have an ntfs filesystem, but even if that were the problem, wouldn't the drive at the very least show up (/dev/sdd, but not /dev/sdd1)?07:21
dr_willisIYea.. sounds like there might be some  quirky hardware/kernel/driver issue going on07:21
dr_willisIt does work with ubuntu live cds ?07:22
aurachronntfs should work fine07:22
digdugsomeone earlier mentioned they were having trouble with ntfs on external drives07:22
digdugI also have an internal drive on /dev/sda1 that's ntfs that mounts fine07:22
aurachroni personally use fat32 with externals, but now that linux has decent ntfs support i don't have to worry07:22
dr_willisI have issues with Gnome auto-mounting ntfs/vfat exteranl drives.. but thats not the same issue as you are having.07:23
dr_willisif  sudo fdisk -l, isent even showing the disk.. theres a deeper issue07:23
digdugoh, gotcha; yeah, my internal disk doesn't auto-mount on boot, but gnome-mount still mounts it fine when I click on Places -> sunny07:23
digdugagreed, but I still can't figure out if it's my issue or not07:24
dr_willisdigdug,  my ntfs/vfat dont wheni do that. I gotta manually mount them.. but that maybe fixed in the recent updates07:24
digdugall 3 of my hard drives are pata; the external one is in an enclosure that goes from pata to usb, of course07:26
digdugI just plugged my card reader into the usb hub on the hard disk enclosure, and my 2gb sd card came up fine07:27
dr_willisdigdug,  Hmm.. this was a sd card on a laptops Internal card reader - you had issues with?07:28
digdugno07:28
dr_willisor am i getting confused now. :)07:28
digdugsd card was always working07:28
dr_willisi had issues in the past with laptop 'built' in readers  -07:28

darthanubislmsensors seesm to correctly gauged my temps07:32
darthanubishardy reported a few degrees cooler07:33
digdugI really like the window themes for 8.10; is the darkroom theme brand new?07:33
darthanubisI don't know07:33
darthanubisI use the ubuntustudio theme for dark07:34
wgrantdigdug: It is new, and was the default for some of the early alphas.07:34
esachi all, just installed intrepid today. i cant seem to get libpcsclite1 to install. any ideas ?07:34
digdugit's very nice; I picked that, but then modified the colors a bit so the window was more grey with a touch of blue, and the scrollbars are blue07:35
digdugI don't like how I either have to disable effects to use workspaces, or if I turn on the "rotate cube" option in compiz, that it "flips" to the 2nd workspace instead of slides like it did before07:38
sigmabetatoothcould anyone with an atheros card offer some tech support07:39
digduggo ahead and ask your question, not sure I can help, but someone else might be able to07:40
sigmabetatoothwell i've been running ibex now pretty much since the initial beta was released07:41
sigmabetatoothbefore ibex i had been using madwifi to support my atheros ar24207:42
sigmabetatoothbut ibex WAS taking care of it for me07:42
dr_willisI find the rotate cube thing is only good for impressing windows users. :)07:42
sigmabetatoothone upgrade about 2 or 3 week back to the wifi down for about 2 or 3 days until there was a patch put in07:42
redwhitewaldowhat's this thing about debian-med?07:43
redwhitewaldodo i need it if I'm not a med student / pro?07:43
sigmabetatoothi took another upgrade today and the wifi went bye bye again07:43
sigmabetatoothany thoughts???07:44
digdugyeah, and I don't really like the rotate cube thing, I preferred it when it would slide to the next workspace, but I don't know where to set that07:44
dr_willisHmm.. one of the 100000 compiz settings. :)07:44
digdughmm, I had my wifi go out on a partial upgrade as well, but a reboot fixed that07:44
digdugatheros card as well07:44
dr_willisdisable cube and see what it does do perhaps?07:44
ArkoldThosanyone with intel problems?07:45
sigmabetatoothi've rebooted a number of times to no avail07:45
sigmabetatooththe strange thing is when i look at the hardware drivers it shows the atheros driver with the grey "this dirver is not activated" icon07:45
ArkoldThoshaha, intrepid just make my wifi works ;)07:45
dr_willisIntrepid upgrade killed my wireless and wired. :)07:46
sigmabetatoothi hit the green activate and...07:46
dr_willisoops...07:46
dr_willisOn my other laptop - wireless worked on it fine. :)07:46
sigmabetatooth"this driver was just disabled, but is still in use"07:46
ArkoldThosintrepid broke 3d acceleration, damn <.<07:47
esaci notice from apt-get packages that have {a} after them now. any idea what that means07:47
sigmabetatoothdoesn't make since considering it was saying it wasn't activated07:47
digdugdisabling the cube just makes it impossible to get to workspace 2; disabling rotate cube, makes me click on the workspaces launcher on my panel to switch07:48
digdugjust nice to be able to hit ctrl+alt+arrow key to move back and forth07:48

redwhitewaldohi. i'm in the middle of upgrading from 8.04 to 8.10. Should I "Replace the customized configuration file /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf"?. pastebin is at http://pastebin.com/m224d3db08:05
redwhitewaldothank you.08:05
dr_willishave you customized that config yourself? if so you may want to keep the original.. or if it was some trival change you did.. use the new. and reapply your changes08:06
redwhitewaldoi don't know/remember if i customized the file myself. 8-(08:06
dr_willisare you evenusing the dhcp server?08:06
dr_willisKeep the original then I guess.08:06
redwhitewaldodr_willis: how do i know if i'm using dhcp server?08:07
redwhitewaldoi'm a newbie08:07
redwhitewaldopoint-and-click newbie08:07
dr_willisIf you dont know.. I imagine you are not using it08:07
dr_willisYou got a lan? you got a router?08:07
redwhitewaldodr_willis: we have a wireless router.08:08
redwhitewaldodr_willis: how can i tell if we have a lan?08:08
dr_willisIts most likely working as a dhcp server also then08:08
dr_willislan = 1 or more machines networked...08:08
redwhitewaldodr_willis: i'm on wired, roommate is on wireless.08:08
dr_willisI imagine the router is working as a dhcp server then.08:08
redwhitewaldohow can we confirm whether it is in fact so?08:09
redwhitewaldoand what happens if i do NOT keep dhcp file?08:09
dr_willisturn off both machines..  power up the other.. see if it gets an ip.08:09
redwhitewaldowhich other?08:09
redwhitewaldowhat other?08:09
dr_willisI imagine it backs up any configs you changed08:09
dr_willisif you machine is working as a dhcp server..  and its off.. then its not going to be used..08:09
dr_willisI very much doubt if your machine IS being used as a dhcp server.08:10
redwhitewaldoand if my machine is NOT being used as a dhcp server, what are the implications ("so what"?)08:10
dr_willisif its not being used.. then it dosent matter much.08:10
dr_willisdhcp gives out ip#'s to other machines on the lan. the router is doing the same job.08:11
redwhitewaldothe only thing that looks familiar to me from the dhcp file is line 22 ( -prepend domain-name-servers 208.67.222.222,208.67.220.220;) that's the opendns servers.08:11

dr_willisI dont recall ever really wanting to view them. I imagine that app is just broken. theres other font viewer apps out.08:51

dr_willisI was thinking at one time i got font previews in the gnome file manager..08:51
pendr_willis: but it is nicer to open fonts file and have a general preview08:52

dr_willisBut its fairly easy to make your own08:58
ilovegnulinuxcan i upgrade hardy with intrepid rc cd?08:58
Jordan_Uilovegnulinux: If it's the alternate install CD08:59
dr_willisi was thinking the alternative cd can.. but you may want to wait a few days.. till everything gets finalized..08:59
ilovegnulinux:) thanks08:59
dr_willisoterwise you may download the cd.. upgrade.. then discover you got another 200+mb of updates/upgrades08:59
ilovegnulinuxk09:00
Jordan_USo I assume by the fact that there are still many updates that there will be another rc ?09:00
dr_willisi belive the last release had 2.. but the release schedule would be the place to look09:01
dr_willis!release09:01
ubottuUbuntu releases a new version every 6 months. Each version is supported for 18 months to 5 years. More info at http://www.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/releases & http://wiki.ubuntu.com/TimeBasedReleases09:01
dr_willishmm.. not the url i was looking for..09:01
dr_willishttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/IntrepidReleaseSchedule09:01
Jordan_Udr_willis: If you schedule ahead of time that you will have a second rc then the first isn't really a release candidate is it :)09:02
dr_willisI think last time they had some big issues...09:02
dr_willisLooks like thers only one RC scheduled09:02
dr_willisi always find the 'artwork deadline, and artwork deadline2, and final artwork deadline' to be amuseing...09:03
Jordan_Udr_willis: I don't think that's updated, I think it's just the schedule as was planned however many months ago09:03
dr_willisits artwork.... :) id rather see focus on stuff then the wallpaper.09:03
digdugI fixed it without reinstalling compiz; when I opened synaptic and searched for compiz, I noticed a package titled compiz-fusion-plugins-main that wasn't installed09:03
digdugI installed that, and desktop wall showed up in the compizconfig settings manager09:04
dr_willisJordan_U,   yep - you maybe right.09:04
ilovegnulinuxdoes intrepid use empathy instead of pidgin?09:04
digdugfunny thing is I never uninstalled it; I wonder if it got removed from "apt-get autoremove"09:04
dr_willisI dont see any empathy ilovegnulinux  in the menus09:04
kulightempathy is in the repos09:05
penis it better than pidgin?09:05
dr_willisSo i guess the answer to ilovegnulinux  is 'no' it does not. :)09:05
kulightbut pidgin is better09:05
penbtw, is there any gui irc client other than xchat?09:06
digdugI'm using pidgin now; like it a lot09:06
Jordan_Uilovegnulinux: empathy isn't even in main09:06
dr_willisI hate pidgin for IRC.09:06
dr_willis!info empathy09:06
ubottuempathy (source: empathy): High-level library and user-interface for Telepathy. In component universe, is optional. Version 2.24.1-1ubuntu1 (intrepid), package size 262 kB, installed size 732 kB09:06
ilovegnulinux:) anyone tried empathy? read about it in gnome 2.24 page09:06
dr_willisTelepathy - is some sort of remote admin tool ibelive09:06
penit looks almost like pidgin09:06
digdugset up pidgin to keep your IRC windows separate from msn, icq, etc. and it works really well09:06
dr_willis!info Telepathy09:06
ubottuPackage telepathy does not exist in intrepid09:06
dr_willisI will stick with xchat for IRC.09:06

penit's annoying09:12
penI can't tell most of the time09:12
dr_willisI would have to guess its a alsa/pulse issue.09:13
penand people would complain about my music being too loud :)09:13

digdugI had to manually go in and disable/enable which speakers I wanted to use at the time09:13

penif I have my headphone before X starts09:13
pendigdug: you mean autodetection?09:14
digdugyeah, it will autodetect when I plug my headphones in09:14
digdugand I'm pretty sure I can leave them plugged in through a reboot and not have a problem09:14
digdugthough, thinking about it, I'm not sure I've actually tried that; I normally don't leave them plugged in unless I'm playing09:15
pendigdug: how about plug in before X starts?09:15
digdugthat's what I mean, I'm not sure I've tried that09:15

scopecreepdidnt for me "easily" in hardy09:17
penpeople always complain about installing flash in 64 bit09:17
penyea09:17
penthat's what I'm saying09:17
penadobe didn't release 64 bit version of flash09:17
peterererit worked for me09:17
kulightno they didnt09:17
Jordan_Uscopecreep: I could've sworn that in hardy it would setup nspluginwrapper automatically if you installed via the package manager09:17
penkulight: what do you mean?09:18
scopecreepJordan_U, It very well might have, but it together with no network port made hardy a pain for me, so i kinda skipped it09:18
prometheanfireanyone know why when I load X my screen blanks out (I can still control stuff but not see anything, even when pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1-6)09:18
kulightpen: adobe did no release 64bit version ( i thought u asked )09:19
digdugyeah, sound played in just the headphones09:19
Jordan_UI'm just amazed at how stable flash 10 final is. I have only encountered one site that it doesn't work with ( no crashes so far ) and it turns out that sight doesn't work with flash 10 on windows either, is it possible the linux version of flash has reached bug parody with windows ;)09:19
penkulight: yes I know09:19
scopecreepso if i have a directory on another linux box i want to share to my network (all linux) should i use samba or nfs?09:19
pendigdug: hm, maybe the new Xorg fixed that too09:19
prometheanfireit is with the nvidia driver09:19
Jordan_Uprometheanfire: Before or after logging in at the GDM?09:20

Jordan_Ukulight: Just because it's not displaying fancy animations doesn't mean it's doing "nothing".09:24
prometheanfireall it should be doing is downloading a file an timing it09:24
dr_willisits calculating the largest prime in the background. :)09:24
kulightJordan_U: well just showing a page is not soposed to be cpu killer09:25
Jordan_Uprometheanfire: Not sure what it does, but if that's it then flash is overkill, it should just use javascript09:25
penkulight: probably there is a bug in file transfer?09:25

dr_willisIve mever  noticed any themes affecting that.. actually  i dont recall any settings affecting that...10:17
Wutzby window border do you mean theme?10:17
dr_williswindow borders are one part of a theme.10:18
dr_williswindow 'decoration'10:18

dr_willisWutz,  I still have to wonder if you are not using compiz instead of metacity.. try running 'metacity --replace'10:27
Wutztyped that and nothing happened10:28
Wutzcompiz isnt enabled10:28
dr_willisIve never seen a metacity theme that moved those controlls.10:29
WutzSorry, got d/ced10:30
WutzIs there anyway to change this?10:30
dr_willisHmm.. guess it is some setting.. I see some os-x themes that do have them on the left.10:30
dr_willisYou could just go hard-core and delete all your gnome settings to get back to Ubuntu defaults10:31
dr_willisbut you may loose your customazations10:31
Wutzoh hmm10:31
Wutzif this changed a setting10:32
dr_willisYou used mac4lin correct?10:32
Wutzthen there must be a command within that theme which changed it, so maybe i can find it and see what it changed10:32
Wutzyes10:32
dr_willishttp://www.howtoforge.com/mac4lin_make_linux_look_like_a_mac10:33
Wutzthink i found it10:33
dr_willisNow navigate to: apps>metacity>general. On the right double click 'button_layout'. Delete that & type: 'close,minimize,maxmize:menu' (without quotes). Press OK and then quit. The buttons will now be on the left side of titlebar10:33
dr_willisaparently they do move the layout :) in that guide10:34
Wutzyeap, i found this in the theme too gconftool-2 --set /apps/metacity/general/button_layout --type string "close,minimize,maximize:menu"10:34
dr_willisTo restore the original layout, just replace the string by 'menu:minimize,maximize,close'.10:34
dr_willisgconftool-2 --set /apps/metacity/general/button_layout --type string  'menu:minimize,maximize,close'10:35
Wutzthat did it10:35

dr_willisIm suprised theres not a compiz plugin for that.10:39

SmegzorI've upgraded to intrepid, but it had a problem with python-simplejson.    http://pastebin.com/d21b50d27   How should I fix it?10:40
Wutzall players do it for me, and i've tried a nvidia card and ati card10:40
zyrorli think the biggest little annoyance i have right now is network-manager-pptp being broken on intrepid10:40
zyrorlwont read passwords saved in keyring properly10:40

emilienwhat do i do , i could boot live cd recover data , edit fstab from live cd ?12:40
emilienor can i remount ?12:41
dr_willisboot live cd. mount partitions manually.. do whatever you want..12:41
dr_williswhat filesystem are the disks? these are your / partition? or just data?12:41
emilienthe whole file system with all my data12:42
dr_willisit may be safest to be VERY paranoid.. and boot live cd. mount disk.. copy data to another fileserver/cd/drive/location12:43
dr_willisthen i would fsck the patitions. and  see if they get fixed.12:44
chowmeinedit seems my hard drive clicks every few seconds, is something wrong?12:45
dr_willisit may be in use.. it maybe going bad.. it may be getting that clickicking all the time due to powersettings problem..12:45
emilientrying recover mood not sure do anything12:47
chowmeinedsmart reports no errors, i ran seatools on it (from the dos diagnostics cd) and it said it was fine, it doesnt really sound like the regular in use clicking noise12:47
chowmeinedits sounds more like unload/reload click12:47
dr_willisthat sounds like that  'overly consertive power saving' issue that was a big deal last year.12:47
chowmeinedi thought that only applied to APM systems12:47
chowmeinedand even still, its on AC power12:48
dr_willisI thought it was the drive makers 'defaults' that the systems did not  override..12:48
dr_willisbatter/ac dident matter. because it was the 'powersaving battery mode' that just showed the problem.. not the fact you were on batteries.12:48
chowmeinedoh hmm12:49
dr_willisbattery mode - let the drive use its 'defaults' which were overly conservitive in some models12:49
dr_willisthe hdparm command could turn off the powersaving stuff...12:49
dr_willisbut i lost those notes. :)12:49
emilienok when im done running fsck , are there any comand to force remount file system ?12:51
chowmeinedand there we go12:53

zeco1can someone help me with ndiswrapper in Intrepid Ibex?13:09
chowmeineddr_willis, ok, got the unload issue dealt with13:09
pal<EyesOfARaven> so what I should to do to install vmware?13:10
EyesOfARavenzeco1: i'm not an expert, but i might be able to help, what's the problem13:10
chowmeineddr_willis, do you know any tricks for fixing disk speed? disk performance right now is pretty slow, doing operations with apt lags out my system13:10
EyesOfARavenpal: i dont quite understand your question13:10
wgrantEyesOfARaven: KVM is a Linux virtualisation techhnology.13:10
dr_willischowmeined,  perhaps some hdparm tweaks.. but othe rthen that.. ive never had issues13:11
zeco1EyesOfARaven: thx: I installed the proper driver in ndiswrapper and did modprobe ndiswprapper, but I don't get the wlan0-Interface13:11
EyesOfARavenwgrant: there's ANOTHER KVM? that's a confusing name then! my apologies for apparently misleading him13:11
pal<EyesOfARaven> When I execute vmware installation scrippt it reports " You canot install on a system with KVM enabled"13:11
chowmeineddr_willis, ive done a few tweaks, but haven't been able to improve it beyond 4.5MB/s13:11
EyesOfARavenzeco1: do you see it in iwconfig?13:11
EyesOfARavenpal: you will likely need to disable KVM then, apparently it is also a linux virtualization technology13:12
pal<EyesOfARaven> I just want to install vmware13:12
zeco1EyesOfARaven; no, just the other interfaces (lo, eth0)13:12
EyesOfARavenzeco1: i know this sounds trivial, but did you reboot?13:12
zeco1EyesOfARaven: of course ;)13:12
EyesOfARaven:D13:12
pal<EyesOfARaven> and how to do this, will it heart other components?13:12
zeco1EyesOfARaven: I'm on it since thursday (upgraded from Hardy to Intrepid RC. ndiswrapper was working in hardy)13:13
EyesOfARavenzeco1: to my knowledge, this generally means that the driver didn't work properly, there may be something else you can do, but i'm not sure what - perhaps try madwifi if that's an option for you13:13
EyesOfARavenpal: i don't know - you should ask someone else about this, as i'm not familiar with it13:13
EyesOfARavenzeco1: though it won't likely work, you could give ifconfig wlan0 up a try, see if the interface appears13:15
zeco1EyesOfARaven: "no such device"13:16
EyesOfARaventhought so13:17
EyesOfARaven:/13:17
EyesOfARavensorry im not sure what to do13:17
sanI upgraded from the beta to the rc and wireless networking stopped working.13:18
EyesOfARavenndiswrapper?13:18
sanbefore I had to remove some restricted kernel modules in order to get it working in the beta13:18
sannope..  Atheros AR5007EG13:19
EyesOfARaveni've heard something about support for AR5000 support being disabled13:19
EyesOfARaventry a kernel update if you haven't13:20
sanEyesOfARaven: why disable a working driver?! And I'm already with the latest version?13:20
EyesOfARaveni don't know, perhaps it *wasn't* working on that version13:21
jaksahow i install tar.gz?13:22
kevorjaksa: it probably is a source package13:22
santar xvzf filename.tar.gz13:22
kevorfirst extract it (like san said)13:22
jaksadone13:22
kevorthen go into the directory and excecute ./configure13:22
jaksadone13:22
EyesOfARavenjaksa: open a terminal, and goto where the file is, "tar xzf *.tar.gz", "cd name-of-dir", "./configure", "make install clean"13:22
kevoryou can try ./configure --help to see the options13:23
kevoryou will probably need some development sources, ./configure will fail with a message of what's missing13:23
sanEyesOfARaven: where can I find more information about on this wireless driver issue?13:23
zeco1EyesOfARaven: I wonder whether this would warrant a bug report or what should I do with this. My wireless card (Dell wireless-n 1505 = broadcom BCM4328 (rev3)) isn't that uncommon. Many people will run into this come next thursday. Or where should I go with this13:23
jaksa No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.13:24
kevordid ./configure succeed?13:25
freaky_thi all. i can't play mp3 files in kubuntu Intrepid can someone help me?13:25

freaky_tkevor: i think so. it suddenly stopped working a week or so ago13:26
EyesOfARavenzeco1: i'm unsure, tbh13:26
freaky_tkevor: yes they are installed13:27
kevorfreaky_t: do you have other sound?13:27
freaky_tkevor: yea amarok says no suitable demux plugin found for mp3s13:27
EyesOfARavenfreaky_t: try running amarok from a terminal with "padsp amarok"13:28

m1dn1ghthey guys.  In Hardy, because of my crappy graphics adapter, I had to use VESA driver.  Whenever I did fresh install my resolution would be capped at 800x600 and to fix I'd have to run "displayconfig-gtk" as root and manually change my monitor to LCD 1024x800.  This command doesn't seem to work in Intrepid.  Does anyone know if command has changed/not included/different workaround?13:32
freaky_ti found a solution! :D i deleted ~/.xine and ~/.gxine now it plays mp3s :DD thank you ^^13:33

nevoeirono wireless extensions13:55
nevoeiro???13:56
nevoeirowas working great in hardy13:56
dreamcodernope didnt do a thing lol13:56
dreamcodergrrrrrrrrr13:56
EyesOfARavennevoeiro: u will need to install a driver for ur wifi, try ndiswrapper (or if your card supports it, madwifi)13:56
dreamcoderwell i am going to have to go back to hardy13:56
nevoeiroand now "no wireless extensions"13:56
nevoeiroargh, why did i update, lol.. hardy was great..13:56
nevoeirooh well..13:56
predator363gotta install seamonkey13:57
AirBendernevoeiro: there should be a driver for your card, you can try booting with another kernel13:57
AirBenderfor the momment, but I think there's just a detail missing13:57
nevoeirook..13:57
AirBenderI can't remember now the name of the modules for this wifi chipset, but you should see if they're loaded13:58
AirBenderwith lsmod13:58
nevoeirojust to test, where can i get ndiswrapper or madwifi?13:59
AirBenderare you with the release candidate?13:59
nevoeiroyes13:59
nevoeirojust updated to rc..13:59
AirBendermadwifi is for the Atheros chipsets, not suitable for your card13:59
EyesOfARavennevoeiro: ndiswrapper comes by default, you need to download the windows driver for your card, and then run the appropriate terminal commands with ndiswrapper on them14:00
AirBenderand ndiswrapper is in the repository, but this is using your winXP drivers...14:00
EyesOfARavenairbender: thanks for clearin that up, i wasnt sure what was supported by it as it's usually referred to pretty vaguely in guides14:00
nevoeirook.. thx for the support14:00
AirBenderinf fact madwifi is by default with the kernel modules in ubuntu14:02
EyesOfARavenath_pci is madwifi then?14:02
AirBenderyou just have to agree with using the ath_hal wich is restricted because it's binary for security reasons14:03
AirBenderyep14:03
EyesOfARavenic14:03
predator363eyesofaraven: actualy yes flash runs 100% flawlesly in seamonkey and sea monkey also seems to be 10000times faster then firefox! why had i not heard of this before?!?!14:03
EyesOfARavenlol i hate firefox14:03
EyesOfARaveni love seamonkey for that very reason sir14:03
EyesOfARaven:D14:03
EyesOfARavenfirefox has gotten bloated with age14:04
EyesOfARavenseamonkey is very old, based on ancient netscape code14:04
EyesOfARavenso it's lean14:04
predator363i used google chrome on windows14:04
predator363does seamonkey do tabs?14:05
EyesOfARavenyeah14:05
EyesOfARavenfile->new tab if im not mistaken14:05
predator363how its not in the files menu14:05
EyesOfARavenmaybe its tabs->new tab14:05
EyesOfARavenlemme fire it up and check14:05
predator363oh yea lol it is im just used to it being right in my face14:05
EyesOfARavenyeah it's not quiiiiite as interface friendly as firefox14:06
EyesOfARavenbut imo the speed and function is worth the trade14:06
z0rhi. I'm upgrading to intrepid with update manager in a gnome session. When pam was upgraded, it asked which services it could restart. gdm was in the list. I removed it because I thought it would boot me out of gnome if it was restarted, and interrupt the installation. Would it have? Is this a bug?14:06
AirBendermay be it's a better idea to do this from the console, out of gnome with do-release-upgrade14:07

EyesOfARaveni tried to uninstall evolution email client16:57
FFForever???16:57
batti5what is a commas?16:57
EyesOfARavenand apparently it's part of the desktop16:57
rmni have a desktop machine that used to run debian etch.  it boots the alpha-6 live CD ok.  It does not start the RC correctly (after splash it blinks an underscore).  md5-sum checked.  x85_64.  any known bugs, or workarounds?16:57
dr_willisdulak,  given how sluggish the servers are.. :)  well..  go for it! but ive had bad issues with upgrades. i just did 2 clean reinstalls..16:57
dr_willisEyesOfARaven,  the 'ubuntu-desktop' package is a meta-package.. removing it wont affedt much.16:57
EyesOfARavenmeta-packages r bundles of other packages rite16:58
dr_willisyep16:58
dr_willisa package that just 'depends' on other packages.16:58
EyesOfARavenit also wanted to remove my gnome-panel-applets16:58
EyesOfARaven:p16:58
dr_willisto make installing a 'suite' of related thigns easier16:58
dr_willisYou could always reinstall those./16:58
dr_willisbut why bother removing it...16:59
EyesOfARavencuz evolution keeps popping up16:59

Don_MiguelI see that one sometimes,too .. and would like to put a stop to it !17:00
FFForeveronly time it popups for me is when i make it open by clicking an email addy :(17:00
dr_williscould bt your session got saved...17:00

kronk2002desorry for lazy answers ;)17:02
* Don_Miguel goes to check Evolution dependencies 17:03
dr_willisdulak,  ive had them be up/down all night. it may be the latest batch of updates going through17:03
EyesOfARavendon_miguel: ty17:03
mamersany idea if the udev-fix for is going to be included in the final release? (CD tray keeps closing after ejecting...)17:03
dr_willisI grabbed the isos via torrent faster then the serves.. but it took me 10 min/a dozen tries  to get the .torrent downloaded from a server17:03
FFForevercan i encrypt all of /home if its its own partition?17:04
FFForever(and its in use right now...)17:04
mamersOne problem I ran into after upgrading: The Network Connection on eth0 was broken. (I would have needed to manually configure it in the Network Manager - something I think many end-users might not be willing to do ...)17:05
FFForeverubuntu just downgraded my wine :(17:05
mamersI added a dhcp-line to /etc/network/interfaces, which solved the issue also.17:06
kronk2002deanother question belongs to an access problem: i would like to use a Option 3G+ PCMCIA card - in 8.04 64bit edition the needed nozomi module is broken, so i changed to intreprid on beta status. in alpha version it was recognized right, since beta i get an "device /dev/noz0 not found", but it is available :(17:06
mamersAny idea on how to have Network Manager automatically use the network settings  --  they have worked out of the box with 8.04 before!17:06
coppromamers: what did you do to get dhcp working?17:07
copproI think I need to do that!17:07
FFForevermamers, network manager auto connects for me :/17:07
copprofor me, having networkmanager running prevents me from connecting, even manually17:07
FFForevercoppro, if u killall nm-applet17:08
kronk2002dewith wired networks i haven't any problems17:08
FFForeverthen dhclient eth0 does it work?17:08
FFForeverkronk try searhing the help docs and the forums or post on the forums17:08
copproFFForever: networkmanager keeps disassociating the network card17:08
mamerscoppro: I added the lines "iface eth0 inet dhcp" and "auto eth0" to /etc/network/interfaces17:08
coppro(wireless)17:08
mamerscoppro: however, that's the *manual* kind of approach, that no end-user would do... (I don't care with my PC at home - still, it's not optimal)17:09
kronk2002deFFForever, i have searched on google and placed threads in ubuntu forum, but nobody can help me17:09
kronk2002decause of that, i hoped I'll find anybody here, who can help me17:09
FFForeveranyone know if i can remotely disable a pdf from my webserver?17:09
mamersFFForever, coppro: yes, "dhclient eth0" worked for me as well - but it's not permanent after next reboot.17:10
FFForeveri only use wifi so i cant help you :(17:10
FFForevermamers so a simple fix would to write a bash script #!/bin/bash <newline> dhclient eth0 and add that as a startup script on login for your session :)17:11
FFForevermamers you might need root to run that command though so i would use a cron script instead and have it run that as root17:11
FFForever:D17:11
mamersFFForever :), 'course -- but tell this my mum ... :)17:12
FFForeveri like quick and dirty fixes :D17:12
mamersWas just wondering if that's a problem others ran into as well. If so, IMHO it should be looked into for final release.17:12
mamers( lol )17:12
FFForevermamers i have a better unfixed problem :D17:13
FFForevermy boot/shutdown stalls till i hold down a key for 20secs17:13
unavailablewww.myspace.com/yahushuah_hamessiach    <-- this page makes firefox hang really bad17:13
copproI had a similar problem on 7.10 that I eventually fixed by making a script to connect and chmod -x /etc/init.d/NetworkManager17:14
coppronot at all optimal17:14
mamersFFForever, ouch! ... well, put our problems together, and a frustrated enduser (after not being able to connect to the web) can't even shut down the machine anymore !? ;)17:14
FFForeveri found out i had to hold a key after pressing and holding my shutdown button the progress bar moved LOL17:15
coppronope, that didn't help17:15
mamersany idea if so. is looking into the network thing? or whom to talk to?17:15
copprowhile networkmanager is running17:15
ratpoisonhello! ATI amd64 user. How is fglrx support on 8.10 RC1?17:15
copprothe wireless card refuses to stay associated to a network protocol17:15
coppro(iwconfig says unassociated rather than IEEE 802.11g)17:15
copproI wonder if I reconfigure network-manager17:15
kronk2002dehi ratposon17:15
kronk2002decurrently no fglrx module is available17:16
mamerscoppro, do you only use wireless? or do you have the problem with ethernet as well?17:16
coppromamers: haven't tried ethernet17:16
FFForeveri use wifi :D17:16
kronk2002debut you can use the free modules until ATI provides a new module working with ne X.org17:16
FFForevermamers when i plug my eth in it works fine for me :/17:16
FFForevermaybe its ur chipset17:16
copproI don't think it'll be a problem though, as knetworkmanager seems capable of using dhcp17:16
FFForeverwhat is the lspci for ur eth card?17:16
FFForevercoppro this is for ubuntu not kubuntu....17:17
copproFFForever: the problem is with NetworkManager, which is on both17:17
coppronothing to do with the graphical interface; it's the daemon that's the trouble17:17
ratpoisonaccording to this http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=canonical_catalyst_811&num=1 there seems to be17:17
ratpoisoncan anyone verify that?17:17
mamersFFForever, chipset is nVidia (onboard). however, if I configure it "manually" in NetworkManager, it works. also, the line in interfaces works just fine. -> the chipset is supported properly (basically at least)17:17
FFForevermamers but what is the lspci of it?17:18
mamersFFForever  nVidia Corporation MCP51 Ethernet Controller17:18
FFForevermcp :(17:18
mamersFFForever (rev a3)17:18
FFForeveri have a mcp67 :/17:19
mamerscoppro: i have no idea about wireless stuff - whether we have the same problem, I don't know ... (might be a wireless-key-configuration-issue, or sth. different?)17:19
coppromamers: no, it's not the key17:19
mamersFFForever: is that bad news?17:19
coppronetwork-manager just refuses to let the thing bind to a network properly17:20
FFForevermamers since i bought this laptop mcp has been nothing but hell for me :(17:20
FFForevermamers are you fully up2date?17:21
batti5why i can`t connect to online play with wormux17:22
batti5?17:22
mamerscoppro I got the error message "Updating connection failed: nm-ifupdown-connection.c.82 - connection update not supported (read-only).." when trying to change a different ethernet interface ... but this was statically configured in interfaces file ... perhaps this error only occurs if the device is already listed manually in interfaces ... you get a similar error?17:22
copprohmm... where did you see that?17:22
FFForeverbatti5, last time i checked wormux didn't have online support (yet...)17:23
mamersFFForever - have just updated any new packages 2 hours ago ... trying again.17:23
kronk2002deis anybody with a intrepid 64bit here?17:23
dr_williskronk2002de,  yes.. it works fine for me.. support in #ubuntu+117:23
dr_willis:)17:23
kronk2002dehi dr_willis17:23
mamerscoppro when trying to modify "eth1" properties from "static" to "dhcp". (which I actually didn't want to do anyway, since I needed DHCP for "eth0", not "eth1"... however, found out about this later and "fixed" the eth0-problem with interfaces-entry above)17:24
kronk2002dei am in ubuntu+1 ;)17:24
FFForeverhas flash started support 64bit on ubuntu yet?17:24
dr_willisFFForever,  it works here.. for me.. support in.. oh wait......17:24
dr_willis:)17:24
copprohmm... I'm going to try again17:24
copprothis time watching my logs17:24
kronk2002dei would like to know, if you have the pand binary available?17:24
dr_willisits using the 32bit compat libs however.17:24
FFForevertail -n FTW!17:24
dr_willispand? never heard of it.. :)17:24
FFForeverpand?17:24
mamerscoppro: this popped up in gnome as an error notification window17:24
FFForeveranyone know where i can get free binarys of john the ripper :D17:25
kronk2002deuntil 8.04 it was located in bluez-utils package17:25

coppromamers: I'm not on gnome17:25
dr_willisits installed. :)17:25
FFForeveri wanna see how fast it can crack my password lol17:25
kronk2002dewith it i can use the Internet Sharing on my HTC phone17:25
copprotail -n? tail -f!17:25
mamersFFForever, yes, all packages are up to date - AFAIC see, no related packages have changed since I upgraded yesterday evening.17:25
kronk2002debetter to say, with it i can enter a PAN with my phone17:25
kronk2002deit IS available for you, dr_wiliis?17:26
FFForevermamers there is nothing u can do but wait :(17:26
mamerscoppro checking...17:26
dr_williskronk2002de,  its installed. it seems..17:26
mamersFFForever - can I file some information somewhere?17:26
kronk2002dedamn, could you locate the package, where it is in?17:26
dr_willisOh waiot.. thats the fileserver.. ;) its not 8.10 yet17:26
kronk2002deahhhh17:26
dr_willisi got the wrong ssh shell open17:26
kronk2002deno problem17:26
dr_willisthis is the reason for Vastly different/color prompts on each machine. :)17:27
FFForevermamers u could file a bug report17:27
kronk2002deROFL17:27
kronk2002deyes, it can also be bad, that everything works well good together *smile*17:27
FFForeverdr_willis, i have a better one for you :), i did a ssh into an ssh into an ssh into an ssh and i wanted to install something forgetting i was on another machine....17:28
FFForeveri installed it and couldn't figure out why it still said it was uninstalled....17:28
dr_williswell on 8.10  64bit - i type 'pand' and it dont tellme where to find the command..  i just get command not found.17:28
dulakanyone have a sharp knife and a live chicken I can borrow?  upgrade is proceeding...17:28
peter771is it worth upgrading from 7.10 to 8.10 yet or waiting until the final release to make a decision?17:29
dr_willisFFForever,  dont 'ssh -X' to a machine and run syngery either....17:29
mamerscoppro can't find this exact error message in /var/log, sorry.17:29
dr_willisFFForever,  that confused things17:29
kronk2002deyes, same here - about three weeks ago it tells me, that i have to install bluez-utils package, but it was installed *grml*17:29
FFForeverdr_willis, i don't use -X17:29
mamerscoppro, don't really know how to reproduce (since my NetworkManager has disappeared from Gnome-panel after my interfaces-entries)17:29
dr_willisFFForever,  the mouse started going from one side of the screen to the middle and back real fast. :) it was amuseing.17:29
FFForeversounds fun :D17:30
dr_willissyngery  - is a neat tool17:30
FFForevermamers you could disable it :D17:30
FFForeverdr_willis, syngery is fun :D17:30
FFForeveri had 4 computers with it :D17:30
kronk2002demamers, for me the NetworkManager appears for every connection, i use - still on time i use it17:30
copprothere is nothing unusual in my logs17:31
kronk2002deso i get a new nm icon, if i just plug a network cable in17:31
copprojust with networkmanager active, the dhcp fails17:31
FFForeveranyways back to learning python :D17:31
dulakpeter771: you'll have to upgrade to 8.04 to be able to upgrade to 8.10 afaik17:31
dr_willisfor some odd reason (i have kde and gnome bothinstalled) i get 2 network manager icons on the top panel. :) and if using wirless.. i get 2 stregenth meters..17:32
dulakpeter771: unless you are gonna clean install instead of upgrade17:32
mamershmm - I don't really trust this automagical things anyway (no offense!) :)17:32
mamerstoo many issues I could misconfigure ;)17:32
peter771dulak, I'm just going to do a fresh install17:32
adz21cHi, I am having issues with my Xonar D2 sound card and interpid. Basically first time I installed it didn't (even though after upgrading to alsa 1.0.17 on hardy it worked, 1.0.17 didn't work on interpid), so I tried upgrading alsa to 1.0.18rc3, that worked for 1 boot, after reboot it failed. Then I reinstalled interpid, it was working for several boots last night. I log on now, no sound again, anyone have any ideas?17:33
peter771dulak, would you say the RC is close enough to the final version to use now?17:33
adz21c^ didn't work I mean :)17:33
dulakpeter771: I'm upgrading right now, I'll tell you in a few17:34
kronk2002dehey peter, it's better to not use non-stable releases on systems you use productive17:34
adz21coh and after reinstall it was working on 1.0.17 shipped with intrepid ... it is as if it works when it decides to.17:34
copproI do that17:34
copproI always upgrade a week or so early to avoid the rush and the overnight (or worse) downloads17:35
dulakcoppro: that's exactly why I'm upgrading today17:35
copproand it's not like much changes at this point17:35
mamerskronk2002de did you do anything special? if I check my processes, there are "NetworkManager" and "nm-system-settings" running...17:35
kronk2002denope17:35
kronk2002debut - for first connection - i had to start networkmanager manually, then i have edited my wlan settings and it worked for me17:36
copprokronk2002de: what do you mean "edited my wlan settings?"17:37
kronk2002dedo you have more than one connection, mamers?17:37
mamersyupp, eth0 (dhcp -> stopped working with upgrade) and eth1 (statically configured for local network)17:37
kronk2002decoppro, after first upgrade to intrepid, i can't see my wlan, cause it was using channel 1317:37
copproah. That's not the problem I'm having17:38
kronk2002dethen i re-installed 8.04, found the hint that 12 and 13 are hided17:38
ali1234mamers: think i have the same problem as you17:38
kronk2002deso, i reconfigured my wlan17:38
kronk2002dethen upgraded to intrepid again, but can't see nm17:38
mamersali1234 what did you do to get your network up and running again?17:39
kronk2002deon this time, i've started networkmanager manually17:39
ali1234mamers: i disabled network manager and manually configured everything17:39
dulak12 and 13 have major problems with cordless phone interference, that's why they are not accessible by default17:39
kronk2002deconfigured my wlan settings and from this time, it works fine17:39
dulakyer basically begging for any neighbor with the right cordless phone to totally jack your wireless whenever they use the phone17:39
theunixgeekHow many wallpapers come pre-installed in the release candidate?17:39
mamersali1234 (what I did was to manually configure eth0 for DHCP in /etc/network/interfaces, but that's nothing an end-user would do ...)17:39
kronk2002dedulak, i've read, that the problem is, that, eg. the police uses the frequences17:39
mamerskronk2002de: when I manually added eth0 to the network manager, the connection worked, yes.17:40
ali1234mamers: my problem is eth0 is configured for dhcp and usb0 is static, and is not an internet connection. but whenever i plug in the usb device, it creates a default route (even though i did not specify one in the static config in /etc/network/interfaces) and it also wipes out my resolv.conf17:40
dulakI don't know about that but I thought I'd be slick and use 13 to hide my wireless from casual snooping17:40
dulakevery time my g/f would use the phone my wireless would go down17:41
mamerskronk2002de, however, I think it's a problem that the network just "stopped working" after the upgrade -- since it *did* work with 8.04 beforehand.17:41
kronk2002dehmm, does other connections works for you from then on?17:41
dulakso I was down about 60% of the day17:41
ali1234mamers: so every time i plug the usb device, i have to reconfigure eth0 etc. or just disable network manager17:41
kronk2002deyes, for wlan i can say the same for me - but i haven't checked it with wired connection17:41
mamersali1234, I can't really remember the exact route anymore, I think it was set to the local eth1-network.17:42
ali1234well this is interesting. the crash report thing says pidgin has crashed17:43
ali1234but if it's crashed, how come i'm still here?17:43
mamersali1234, however, eth0 was not listed in NetworkManager at all after the upgrade ... "ifconfig" did show the interface, but it had a wrong IP address (and the default route should have pointed to eth0-network ...)17:43
mamersali1234: AFAICT eth0 just didn't use DHCP -- which is why it could not work properly then, of course.17:44
ali1234mamers: i also did not have the problem in hardy17:44
ali1234mamers: network manager just crashed on me anyway :/17:45
mamersali1234 hmm, seems the NetworkManager might be problematic in some situations... ?17:46
ali1234seems like every time i boot up at least one program crashes before i get to desktop. usually network manager applet, but sometimes the volume control or another gtk app17:46
mamersali1234: however, I don't have a real solution for my problem ... just a manual workaround.17:46
ali1234mamers: oh yeah... very much so17:46
mamersali1234 have you tried a new user-profile already? (same problem there as well?)17:47
ali1234mamers: i dont have any per user settings for nm17:47
mamers(or does th eproblem occur even before you log in?)17:47
ali1234mamers: eth0 is still configured exactly as it was when i first installed and usb0 is configured in /etc/network/interfaces17:48
ali1234mamers: the problem occurs any time i unplug and plug in the usb device17:48
mamersali1234, I'm not sure, but the setting "[ifupdown] managed=false" in /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf might have something to do with this ...17:49
ali1234mamers: but then... the usb wouldn't come up at all when i pluged it17:49
mamersali1234 whether it means not to use NM for interfaces from /etc/network/interfaces, or the other way 'round, I don't know ...17:49
ali1234mamers: the problem is that it comes up, but then a default route gets created which i dont want17:49
ali1234mamers: and which i did not ask for. and also my resolv.conf gets wiped, because i did not specify any name servers on that interface, because there arn't any17:50
mamersali1234 you might try to tell NM *not* to handle anything with the usb-stuff.17:50
mamersali1234 as you might have guessed, i don't know about the NM either ;), ... but perhaps changing the property above from false to true or the other way round might help (!?)17:51
ali1234mamers: i will give it a try17:51
ali1234mamers: but i suspect that will be the same as disabling nm entirely ie i will have to manually ifconfig it every time17:51
copproali1234: try making a script; that's what I did17:52
peter771I'm running 7.10 and thinking about upgrading to 8.10 (fresh install), is it worth waiting until the final release or is 8.10 pretty much ready now in its RC stage?17:52

td123so is the dark theme going to be the default for 8.10? just curious17:54
mamersali1234 hmm, sorry, no idea there ... thought that /usr/share/doc/network-manager/* might hold usefull information, but I'm not sure it helps.17:55
mamersali1234 need to go again ... let's hope the package maintainers can find the time to look into the NetworkManager again until the final release...17:56

acksawhey guys, trying to get my wireless card working, not sure where to start, currently using a crossover from my Vista PC and ICS... my wireless card is a F5D7000 and i think the version is 101018:01
ali1234wow, i dont know if an update fixed it or something but it seems to be working now18:01
vincenzo_mlHi there, I am using intrepid under a virtual machine under windows because of broken intel wireless drivers under linux. Do some of you know how to make it access physical ext3 devices that windows does obviously not use?18:02
falstaffhello18:03
td123vincenzo_ml: there is no software that does what you want18:03
falstaffi installed ibex rc1 today and i have no virtual terminals. I have to say that this laptop is new, so it might be a problem which exists since a longer time...18:04
falstaffany idea?18:04
vincenzo_mltd123: what do you mean? Is there no way to map physical partitions to virtual devices in linux? did you already try to do this?18:04
falstaffCtrl+Alt+F1 shows nothing than a blank screen, no cursor, absolutely nothing...18:04
td123vincenzo_ml: actually, you could try using the ext mount utils for windows, mount them, and create a transparent folder with virtualbox pointing to the mounted ext partition.... It might just work :D18:04
falstaffI have a nvidia graphic card and use nvidia binary driver18:04
vincenzo_mltd123: that would mess up permissions!18:05
falstaffubuntuforums shows some solution, i tried this (fbcon, vga=791 kernel parameter) didnt work....18:05
falstaffAny idea?18:05
vincenzo_mltd123: however I can't believe nobody thought of this18:05
td123vincenzo_ml: I don't speak for everyone...18:05
bsniderfalstaff, what graphics card is this?18:05
falstaffbsnider: nvidia18:05
falstaffbsnider: nvidia quadro fx 77018:05
vincenzo_mltd123: ok I see. Thank you in any case18:06
td123vincenzo_ml: so what if it messes up permissions though... just don't do anything like rm -rf /18:06
vincenzo_mltd123: I want to share my home directory and there are posix permissions18:06
bsniderfalstaff, you need the 177 driver for that18:06
vincenzo_mlif I mount trough windows I don't think I can see modes18:06
td123vincenzo_ml: well windows is the problem then...18:07
falstaffbsnider: yes, i have this driver18:07
falstaffbsnider: nvidia-settings says 177.8018:07
bsniderfalstaff, and then you need a working xorg.conf file to tell x to load it18:07
vincenzo_mltd123: it is, absolutely :) however ubuntu is a bigger problem - I NEVER use windows, I never did serious work under windows for a decade. But since when intel open-sourced their drivers, I can't work anymore18:07
td123vincenzo_ml: did you try googling it?18:08
vincenzo_mltd123: yes and I will now retry :=18:08
vincenzo_ml)18:08
falstaffbsnider: im pretty sure this driver is in use at the moment, nvidia-settings wouldnt work otherwise...18:08
bsnidergood18:08
bsniderthen you're all seet18:08
vincenzo_mlbye all, rebooting and then back18:10
falstaffbsnider: what can i check else? boot splash screen works, so framebuffer seems to work right? When i press Ctrl+Alt+F1 then he does nothing for a few seconds. Then the display switches to black (its more if the screen goes off then displaying black...)18:10

adz21cHi, I am having issues with my Xonar D2 sound card. Basically first time I installed ubuntu interpid it didn't work at all (even though after upgrading to alsa 1.0.17 on ubuntu hardy it worked, 1.0.17 didn't work on interpid), so I tried upgrading alsa to 1.0.18rc3, that worked for 1 boot, after reboot it failed. Then I reinstalled interpid (moving me back to the 1.0.17 shipped with intrepid), it was working for several boots last18:19
adz21cnight, watched a DVD etc. I log on now, no sound again, anyone have any ideas?18:19

spiderwortHi guys...I'm trying to install intrepid and grub fails to install. I need to gather some information for the bug report because "it doesn't work" is useless to everyone. What logs from the installation might be of use?19:28
alka_trashthe funny thing is that I can browse to it with grub and kick off the latest kernel, but it still fails  (FAIL)19:29

PazzoRegarding the sound issue: manually switching to OSS helps, using auto (or pulse) gives me nothing but noise. Worked fine 'til yesterday19:31
jum-chronhello, I upgraded from hardy to ibex successfully, theres one problem: sound through my usb headset and internal speakers functions, only when I plug in my external speakers no sound comes out19:31

nekostar?21:12
nekostardigdug eh?21:12
noaxiin 2.6.27.321:12
digdugtrying to compile a new kernel, I mean21:12
nekostarnoaxi yeah see latest kernel prolly has some uglyish bug21:12
nekostardigdug oh thats really easy21:12
nekostargo to #debian21:12
nekostar<dpkg> To compile a kernel The Debian Way(tm) "apt-get install kernel-package build-essential libncurses5-dev" and follow the instructions in /usr/share/doc/kernel-package/README.gz; You should also ask me about <make-kpkg> and <kp mantra>, or just http://newbiedoc.sourceforge.net/system/kernel-pkg.html.en, or <kernel build-deps>21:13
nekostar<nekostar> make-kpkg21:13
nekostar<dpkg> well, make-kpkg is the tool that you use for compiling the kernel the Debian Way (tm). It makes a package for your custom kernel which you can install and remove easily using dpkg. See http://www.debian.org/doc/FAQ/ch-kernel.html  man make-kpkg and ask me about <kernel compile> <kp mantra> <kernel build-deps>.21:13
nekostar<nekostar> kp mantra21:13
nekostar<dpkg> kp mantra is probably make-kpkg clean ; export VER=$(date +'%Y%m%d') NAMEEXT="-$(hostname)-$(dpkg-architecture -qDEB_HOST_ARCH)"; make-kpkg --revision=$VER --append-to-version=$NAMEEXT --rootcmd fakeroot kernel_image modules_image . Add --initrd before kernel_image if you need an initrd.21:13

DJonesDoes the nv driver still exist in Intrepid? if I try to update from hardy I get the warning that a driver for my nvidia card doesn't exist at the moment (old geforce2go in a laptop), as long as the nv still works, I know i can still get my 1600x1200 resolution, but if I had to drop to the vesa driver, I'm not sure if I'd be able to get that resolution21:13
nekostarDJones yeah21:13
nekostarnvidia-glx-xxx21:13

noaxiI have yet another problem , of less importance, since most fb devices are blacklisted..21:23
bsnideri use a different card now, but the ath5k driver was causing a hard lockup on this system. presumably the newer one doesn't have that issue21:23

eagles0513875does anyoen know why or what keeps nerfing my resolv.conf after rebooting and even after a while of using the net the resolv.conf gets nerfed21:48
wgranteagles0513875: NetworkManager. It has done so for several releases now.21:50
eagles0513875this is the first time this has happened to me though21:51
eagles0513875was doing this in hardy to a degree now in intrepid its completely nerfing the resolv.conf21:51
wgrantThen you are probably wrong.21:51
eagles0513875maybe but now im noticing there is a problem with dns21:52
wgrantYou're *not meant to edit resolv.conf if you are using NetworkManager*21:52
wgrantThe comment at the top of the file tells you that.21:52
eagles0513875then where do i tell knetwork manager what name servers to use21:52
Tom_Davisif youre using dhcp its automagic21:52
eagles0513875im not21:52
eagles0513875im using static ips on internal net21:52
wgrantThen edit the connection settings and choose your DNS servers.21:53
Tom_Davisunless they changed it, just edit /etc/network/interfaces and tell it21:53
eagles0513875whats funny though after upgrading from hardy21:53
eagles0513875interfaces file still has my ip and everything21:53
wgrantWhy would an upgrade replace a user-modified config file silently?21:53
wgrantThat would be stupid.21:54
chadeldridgewhy would it have gone away21:54
eagles0513875what my resolv.conf21:54
Tom_Davisresolf.conf is not user modified21:54
eagles0513875there is something really buggy with this upgrade21:55
wgrantRead the first couple of lines of resolv.conf.21:55
eagles0513875there is only one line21:55
wgrantIt's not that hard to work out that things are going to clobber it.21:55
eagles0513875but now i created a new wired connection but for some reason it didnt appear in the list21:56
wgrantWhich list?21:56
eagles0513875knetowork manager connections list which u configure21:56
wgrantI'm aware.21:57
eagles0513875is that a known bug out there21:58
eagles0513875im out for now guys21:58
wgrantWhat bug!?21:59
wgrantI fail to see how listing connections can be regarded as a bug.21:59
freeksh0w86I notice that in Kubuntu 8.10 I am getting black bars around the display running Sauerbraten even though 1280x800 IS a pixel-perfect mode for my screen. This is an nvidia 8500 gt. latest nvidia driver from repos.21:59

freeksh0w86I found nvidia-settings but is there a way to add screen resolution modes?22:09
joaopintoI don't know an anonymous only ftpd, maybe you didn't set it up for regular accounts ?22:09
wgrantYou want an anonymous-only ftpd...22:09
freeksh0w861280x800 should be perfectly valid, and I know it is it's worked before.22:10
wgrantYou really, really, really don't want to be transmitting your UNIX password across the Internet, unencrypted.22:10
