keithclarkWhen using a BitTorrent client, all seems well for several hours, then all of a sudden my net access slows to a crawl and I can no longer get to any websites without resetting both my cable modem and my router.  Does this sound like a router being overwhelmed problem or something else?00:03

pupuser10a382could of been corrupted00:06
pupuser10a382:Dn00:06
stevenw9keithclark: Then this rules out your network adapter being the problem. Have you had this issue without your router?00:06
Tom_Davisd3 then just sudo md /mnt/iso then sudo mount -o loop isoname.iso /mnt/iso00:06
Tom_Daviserr mkdir00:06
Tom_Davisnot md00:06
keithclarkstevenw9, I've never tried hooking the modem up direct before.00:06
D3JAVUi dont wont nero i wont now semple comand in terminal :)00:07
mongolaikeithclark:  that's tricky issue... you probably need to take that up with your ISP, but there is the linux kernel command sysctl that has many options regarding the operation of the linux kernel. networking is one of those...00:07
stevenw9keithclark: You should. If you still have this issue, I advise talking to your ISP about getting a replacement modem.00:07
ReignMy wlan0 won't show up in iwconfig. I've tried using ndiswrapper to no avail. Please help me with this00:07
stevenw9keithclark: However if you DON'T have the issue, then we know it's a router issue. Thus you can come back here after that.00:07
keithclarkstevenw9, or maybe this is an issue with throttling?  Although I've limited the speed of the bittorrent client to something reasonable compared to my connection00:07
stevenw9keithclark: It might be, it might not be. Hence why I suggest trying with your modem directly connected.00:08

hotmonkeyluvI have 3 lcd monitors, two which have vga, and one has dvi and vga. what combination of video cards will allow me to play games (WoW, CS:S, Nexuix, Tremulous, Alien Arena, Minesweeper, etc...) Is there a way to attach 2 monitors to one DVI output? I've heard of DVI-D or DVI-I and one of them is a dual link, does that mean that I can run 4 displays off of one dual dvi out card? I want this to work in windows and, more importantly, Linux00:50
hotmonkeyluv(preferably Ubuntu, but I'll use whatever)00:50

msaulThe network controller for DWA 542 is Atheros , should I be trying out madwifi direction?00:53

msaulDo you have a link to a good ndiswrapper howto?00:54

curtis_Desktopwhen does digsby come out for linux?00:54

msaulThere was mention also of madwifi-ng but didn't really know what that meant00:55

perilluxI want to put a small minimal windows installation onto a separate partition on this computer.  What I'm wondering is.. could I possibly use an installation CD that was made for another computer on this computer?  I'm thinking that CD will install video drivers and everything for that other comp.. would I still be able to at least use it so I can install the proper drivers, will this work at all??01:06
rainbowinfinityi've tried installing and reinstalling java, but i'm never sure if it works or not...the test never works, but never says it didn't work either01:06
stinkmanfavro, added it to /hosts, no progress01:06

kitchejoshual: use gksu gparted to start gparted with root powers01:07
perilluxScunizi: probably will be used mostly for windows games01:07
kthefjoshual, just go to terminal window and type sudo gparted01:07

danbh_intrepiddarkhamm: I would locate the files, and then right click.  Change the default that way01:09
kitchejoshual: and what's your point since you can resize the partition all you want if your still inside the partition if you wanted to you could even delete partitions when your still in them I do it all the time01:09

danbh_intrepid!intrepid > moobag01:09
ubottumoobag, please see my private message01:09
Scuniziperillux: like Tom_Davis said.. to install you'll need a retail copy or oem copy (cheaper from places like tigerdirect). If you try to use one designed for a specific Mfgr. then you may be out of luck.  Either way, once installed you won't have access to Ubuntu again until you fix Grub, the boot loader.. because windows will overwrite it.01:09
joshualkitche: NO you cannot resize the partition if its mounted01:09

danbh_intrepidjoshual: I dunno.  I always just use the livecd01:10
kitchejoshual: but technially when you gksu your not in /home since you gain root powers but why not just use a live cd01:10
sistpotyjoshual: you sure can resize the partiation (as in partition table) but not the file system on top of it01:10
darkhammdanbh_intrepid: yes , it works, thank you!01:10
pineheadls01:10
perilluxScunizi: I'm sure there's plenty of tutorials on how to do that...?   Also, this comp originally had window but instead of a recovery CD the cheap manufacturers made a recovery partition, which I overwrote when installing ubuntu01:11

lunafreestateany one have any luck using btpd01:11
hasanibrahimhelp pleae :(01:11
DCPomis there a point in installing ubuntu-desktop on Ubuntu server?01:11
Scuniziperillux: a good arguement for partimage.. it's like ghost.. it'll make a copy of the partition so you can put it back later.01:11
musikgoatrainbowinfinity: unfortunately I have the same problem as this person: https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/36489  which I just tried installing the java development kit as a test and that also didn't resolve the problem,  but you don't have the same problem as me.   try going to terminal and typing sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk01:11
ScuniziDCPom: only if you want a gui and then you might consider xubuntu instead.01:12
perilluxScunizi: wait.. are you saying that I can still access that windows recovery partition?01:12
danbh_intrepidkitche: the problem is if he logs in with gnome at all, /home has to be mounted, and files become in use.  Thus, he can't easily unmount the partition.01:12

perilluxScunizi: oh, I didn't01:12
kitchedanbh_intrepid: umm what I umount /home all the time01:13
ScuniziDCPom: no.. most who work with server do it from terminal.  They don't need a gui.. but some of us, me included. like to have it around01:13
perilluxScunizi: anyways, so do you think using the installation cd for that other laptop will work on this laptop?  Also I don't intend to ever use that other laptop again so there shouldn't be any lagality problems or anything... right?  not that I care, really.01:13
curtis_Desktopi have 2 gigs of music and i want to have it all open in one player so that i can go threw the songs and select the one that i want to listen to what is a good player that will do that?01:13

rainbowinfinityi think something is happening...hold on01:14
danbh_intrepidkitche: then maybe he he doesnt need to login as root.  I dunno01:14
Scuniziperillux: if you received the install cd with the other laptop it might work .. it might not.. you won't know until you try.01:14
sistpotydystopia: look for serial, and uncomment what you need to get a login shell on serial console login (ttyS0=first serial port ttyS1=second one)01:14
Tom_Davisperillux if that disk says anything about the manufacturer of the laptop on it, I would bet a dollar to a donut against it working01:14

mongolaiTom_Davis:  Ok. What is the procedure to get pulse audio to pipe sound to an arbitrary machine on the LAN for only the user intended --ie -- in a multi user configuration with the user in question logging in via a remote X session, while the local user remains local01:28

marc_I a a question,  I have an Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 and I am trying to install the drivers from nvidia but it says I need to stop the x window how would I go about that?01:28
kitcherainbowinfinity: install sun-java6-plugin01:29
musikgoatmarc_: why are you trying to install drivers from nvidia?01:29
Raylzmarc_: sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop01:29
Tom_Davissorry, pulseaudio is not in my arsenal of useless knowledge01:29
kthefmarc_, sudo apt-get install envy01:29

cs_studentwhen I try to run frostwire I get "OOPS, you don't seem to have a valid JRE. FrostWire works best with Sun JRE available at http://www.java.com"01:30
mongolaiTom_Davis:  I was sort of kidding when you said "Next caller :)"01:30
kthefmarc_, after you install and reboot, you can go to terminal window and type sudo nvidia-settings and configure it how you want01:30
kitchetrigpin: it will do nothing but update packages for the version of ubuntu your on01:30
Raylz[biabia]: the americans claimed to have invented the computer too01:30

n8tuserliquid you're welcome, come back anytime and we can troubleshoot your network01:47

IsTI37What group is that ? n8tuser ?01:47
untermenschRaylz: is there a english wiki?01:47

musikgoattrigpin: maybe an update manager or synaptic is hanging, check ps01:51
sistpotydystopia: the only thing I could think of, would be that the ttyS0 is already used by providing a serial console... does dmesg shed any light on this?01:51
n8tuserdystopia-> does your alpha have another port so you can perhaps go from one port looped into the 2nd port?01:51
dystopiasistpoty: maybe i can use my paralel port... but i dont know what it must be set to in BIOS01:51

SmegzorI have a problem with grub.  I have two partitions (Fedora and Ubuntu).  Both installed grub and for ages only the Ubuntu grub booted which was fine.  Recently they somehow changed so that now only the Fedora grub boots.  I want to format the Fedora partition, but I'm worried that I will make my computer unbootable. How do I tell it which Grub to use? If I can get it booting Ubuntu's grub again, I can probably format Fedora safely.03:52

bigcx2hey all05:28
juniechognea, what is a mount point?05:28
bigcx2i have a somewhat intricate question05:28
izinucsGnea, forgot about sudo when using it.05:28
bigcx2i have an ubuntu install with a ext3 filesystem w/ some random stuff on it05:29
bigcx2i want to get a new hard drive of a different size05:29
Gneajuniecho: an empty directory that the partition gets mounted to - for instance, /dev/sda3 is mounted to /05:29
bigcx2and copy everything over05:29
bigcx2on the new hard drive05:29
bigcx2i've run fdisk and ran mkfs.ext305:29
Gneajuniecho: if you plug a usb pendrive it, it probably gets mounted as /dev/sdb1 to /mnt/disk05:29
izinucsbigcx2, do you have an external usb drive?05:29
bigcx2and done a cp -a to get all my files over to the new drive05:29
juniechoso you mean this 'drive' becomes a sub-folder in linux?05:29
bigcx2no05:29
bigcx2but i can't get it to boot?05:30
Gneajuniecho: yes, it's how linux reads it. there are no drive letters.05:30
juniechooh so everything is under /, the root partition i specified05:30
Gneaexactly.05:30
bigcx2what special stuff should i have to do to get a ext3 partition to be bootable05:30
juniechonow i get the picture05:30
izinucsbigcx2, well if you've copied all the files over then you have to make sure the drive is flagged as a boot drive and you might need to reinstall grub05:30
Gnea:)05:30
juniechoso, the question is, do i have to create the folder manually?05:31
bigcx2izinucs: i used fdisk to do that, and i sort of thought i might have to re-install grub05:31

Gneajuniecho: yes. i would keep it simple:  sudo mkdir /mnt/vista   and then something like this:   UUID=d56d38c2-8fdb-400a-9fd1-d2328c5fed15   /mnt/vista  ntfs-3g  defaults  0 005:31

juniechooh yeah, it works with windows so i think this laptop has it06:19
sleepsterthanks dr_willis06:19
wsaoh wait -- 'Yes, quickplay, because "original" rotation-button doesn't give any keycode. aka. doesn't work06:19

bullgard4Gnea: Thank you for your help.06:19
dr_willisaccelerometer is a sensor ibelive used so when you drop the laptop - it sees its going to hit.. and auto-parks the hard drive. :)06:19
juniechobut i don't need that auto-rotate thing, what i need is instead of rotating the screen by 90 degrees, i want to rotate the screen by 180 degrees at the push of a button06:20
|Cyb3rPunk|how do I get ubuntu to rember my settings so when I log back on after restart it auto opends every back up06:20
wsajuniecho: it looks like the howto is telling you to copy a shell script from the howto and bind it to a key06:20
favro!sessions06:20
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about sessions06:20
juniechoyes so i edited the shell script myself like this: http://pastebin.com/m7e09d9f106:20
|Cyb3rPunk|can it be done?06:21
dr_willis|Cyb3rPunk|,  gnome has a 'sessions' settings control tool that has a check bos for that - i belive.06:21
juniechoso it could get to inverted straight when i press the button, instead of 90 degrees rotation06:21
|Cyb3rPunk|where do i fin d that?06:21
juniechowhat i don't understand is this: rotation="$(xrandr -q --verbose | sed -n '2 {p;q}' | cut -d' ' -f5)"06:22
XavuraI'm guessing all these programs beginning with k aren't really needed06:22
Xavuraand are leftovers from kubuntu?06:22
dr_willis|Cyb3rPunk|,  check the settings/admin menus.06:22
Akazawawhats a good visio alternative for ubuntu?06:22
juniechoso could i just leave the line as it is and get the 180 degrees rotation?06:22
dr_willisXavura,  depens on the app.06:22
Gneabullgard4: cheers06:22
legend2440|Cyb3rPunk|: do you mean auto login? so you dont have to enter name and password?06:23
wsajuniecho: huh, it looks like it gets information about the current orientation of the screen and stores it as ${rotation}06:23
Polygon89where can i get ahold of an op?06:24
|Cyb3rPunk|no i got that want to make it so when i log in every thing reopens like what i had open in my last session fedora had somting in admin settings but cant find it in here06:24

juniechohmm if that's so nothing to worry about i think06:24
dr_willisXavura,  its very likely those are Kernel processes...06:25
Xavurahow likely is very likely?06:25
wsajuniecho: keeping in mind that I don't actually know anything, it looks like the cases for 'normal' and 'inverted' are absolute and not relative transformations06:25
kharnovOkay, I kinda need some help here. Usually, I can run Tremulous just fine, but now if I try to run it, I get a black screen telling me that the screen resolution can't be displayed or something like that.06:25
dr_willisXavura,  i would say most all of them are.. they seem familer to me - google the specific names and see to be 100% sure.06:25

Xavuraor anyone06:26
wsajuniecho: you'll be in trouble, removing the sections of code that you removed, if for any reason your screen is stuck at 90 or 27006:26
dr_willisXavura,   You could be logged in several different times/processes so its counting each one as a user06:27
Polygon89Hi.....i think windows xp killed my cd drive,...and now it wont even open in ubuntu, it says its not responding to a dbus call or something......any suggestions? =/06:27
juniechoso how could i get my screen stuck at 0 or 180?06:27
Xavuradr_willis: How can I check, looks funky to me06:27
kharnovEr, wait, lemme rephrase my problem.06:27
|Cyb3rPunk|every thing gose good untill the lst step06:27
juniechobecause i don't want 90 or 270 yeah...06:27
Xavuradr_willis: I just logged in like 10 minutes ago.. no one else is logged in06:27
dr_willisXavura,  try the 'who' command.06:27
XavuraI see tty and pts/006:28
XavuraBoth on my name06:28
XavuraThat ok then?06:28
kharnovIf I try to run a game, I get a black screen telling me I can't run at a certain resolution, but I already am running at that resolution, but with a different frequency. However, I can't switch to that frequency for some reason.06:28
wsajuniecho: well there is no case for 90 or 270 in your script now -- so if something causes the screen to be in that orientation, the button won't do anything06:28
|Cyb3rPunk|no "session" menu06:28
wsajuniecho: hang on06:28
dr_willisXavura,  now go to a consle and log in again.. then check who again. :) and see if its now 306:28

wsadhcpcd should populate resolv.conf with nameservers automagically . . .06:54
jim_pwsa: i need to set my isps dns servers and i use static ip on my lan06:54
wsajim_p: this may be overkill for you, but i might recommend running tinydns or dnsmasq on your router, naming your isps nameservers as nexthops, and doing static leases06:56
Tazz_NBwsa, haha - I was typing up the same06:56
Tazz_NB:)06:56
wsagreat minds lol06:56
Tazz_NBjim_p, assuming you are an adsl/dsl user, it might even pay to run a local proxy with something like tinydns etc06:57
Tazz_NBI do it at home and it saves me a good couple of meg every month06:57
jim_pwsa: kill me as in...? i use static ip on my lan, and i simply set my isps dns servers there and i am fine. this pc i am on now has all this and its working perfectly06:57
Tazz_NBjim_p, dns lookup make up quite a "bit" of network traffic etc, having a local dns "cache" helps quite a bit06:58
wsawhat Tazz_NB said06:58
jim_pTazz_NB: oh come on. its like ...2 ips!06:59
wsaalso if you EVER get an IP address dynamically you will probably lose what is in resolv.conf06:59
wsabut yeah what you are doing will work so long as you never change anything06:59
jim_pwsa: dynamically from the isp? i get a new ip almost daily06:59
Tazz_NBjim_p, you wanna tell me you only connect to two servers ?06:59
wsajim_p: no I just mean the box in question -- from the router -- like i said it might be overkill -- if your configuration is static you can just edit resolv.conf07:01

jim_pTazz_NB + wsa: here is the deal. i am on adsl. i use an adsl router to connect to my isp. that router has its own ip and my pc has its own ip too, both static. however i need to state my isps dns servers (on my pc, on the router they are already set) for better "results"07:02
z0rhi! I'm trying to upgrade to Intrepid using a live CD .iso mounted at /cdrom. When I tried using apt-cdrom to add it as a source, it wouldn't recognise it because the Packages file is actually called Packages.gz07:03

z0rhow can i get apt to recognise those sources?07:04
Tazz_NBjim_p, it should be able to07:05
jim_pz0r: i am not 100% sure, but i think that you need the alternative cd to do so. only the alternative can be recognised as sources07:05

juniechoi'm trying to get the tablet pen work, the guide said i need some patched driver07:23
dr_willisI imagine it depends on the 'server' tasks. also07:23
wsatyler: that behaviour is usually the behaviour of some safe mode boot option, or some errant early userspace init checkpoint.  are you selecting the correct boot option?07:23
juniechoso i downloaded the driver and patched it, but i cannot compile this so cannot install this thing07:24
tylerwsa: yes its really weird, sometimes it boots perfectly ok, and sometimes it goes into busyshell, ide say its about 50 50, i just reboot it again and it boots fine...it also did this in debian with the updated kernel....could be reacting to my hardware i guess07:24

wsatry copying the module over as the howto says07:41
wsa'sudo cp src/2. . . .'07:42
dr_willischerva,   you could alwahs ssh to the box and run a text based  editor. :) but yes. I do think theres some GUI exitors that can edit over ftp/ssh but i  dont rember what ones.. emacs proberly can..it can do everything else.  gedit might have the feature, also geany might.07:42
wsaand try the next steps of the howto (inserting the module, et cetera)07:42
bullgard4blah561: There are several. One important is /usr/share/applications/07:42
chervadr_willis: gedit can't edit them there is no save button when I open a file in the ftp mount07:43
blah561bullgard4:  Thanks07:43
dr_willischerva,  you could use that fuseftp filesystem tool. then the ftp site will appear as a local directory to all apps. Butive not used that in ages either.07:43
chervadr_willis: ok first I'll try to mount the server with ssh and see if gedit can save then I'll try fuseftp07:44
wsajim_p: well it's like I don't know gentoo on the desktop with encrypted disks is a PITA and so I am thinking of ubuntu there and have this preference that everything is the same07:44

SmegzorI'm about to back up my root by copying it.  I'm skipping home, mnt, media.  Are there any other folders I do not want to include in my backup?  My home is in a different partition.07:57
SBToothany action in here... not much going on with the ibex07:58
jim_pSmegzor: i suggest fstab, xorg.conf, menu.lst and any specific one you may need like samba or network interfaces07:58
jim_pSmegzor: all the others are trivial in front of these 307:58
Jordan_U_jim_p: He asked for what *not* to include07:59
jim_pSmegzor: and sources.list ! 4 then07:59
Smegzori'm already including those07:59
jim_pJordan_U_: well these sum to like ...100kb! much much less than an entire copy of the partition07:59

Smegzori'm pretty sure I'm supposed to include the other folders in my backup.  I'm aware that some folders are virtual? but I'm not sure which ones.08:00
Jordan_U_SBTooth: What's the problem?08:00
SBToothmy atheros was working nicely with the new drivers coming with intrepid08:00
Jordan_U_Smegzor: /proc for instance08:01
SBTooththen i took the latest upgrade and no more wireless08:01
Smegzorthanks.  what about dev?  skip it?08:01
Jordan_U_Smegzor: You can tell cp to stick withing one file system when backing up, or use a purpose built backup utility08:01
Jordan_U_Smegzor: Yes08:01
jim_pSBTooth: what module did ti use?08:02
SBToothath5k i think08:02
SBToothnot 100% sure08:02
Smegzori'm about to resize my root partition, but NOT before attempting a backup :)08:02
SBToothi know just enough to be dangerous on this thing :(08:02

sinanWhen using a pipe, the second application is only run when the first one finishes. Is there a way to make them run together, and just feed the output of the first to the second "as it occurs"?08:04
dr_willissinan,  thats what 'fifo's are for I think.08:05
SBToothjordan that has been my experience too08:05
Jordan_U_sinan: That is in fact what happens, it's just that the data is buffered so it may not seem that way in certain circumstances. What are you trying to accomplish?08:05
SBToothjust wondered if there was anything else i could do08:05
sinanJordan_U_: I have one application which generates an infinte sequence of data it its stdout, this data is used by a second application when to create a "movie" of plots.08:06
sinanJordan_U_: I have control over both applications, so I can make them communicate in a different way if needed08:06

WIGGMPkrob__: even though you want to use this as "development or testing" you might be breaking your ISP agreement by setting such a server up. I wouldnt want to see you get in trouble for this, so I would advise you speak with your ISP on the matter. I believe this has something to do with the patriot act (logging ISP of all people sending e-mails) something about spammers08:14
Tom_Davisyou know if you install hardy on a thinkpad with the trackpoint unplugged it does not install the driver with no hope of recovery?08:14

ubottuThe Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD.  Look for the alternate checkbox on the Ubuntu download page - See also !minimal - Torrent at http://releases.ubuntu.com/8.04.1/ubuntu-8.04.1-alternate-i386.iso.torrent09:25

nnullfoges_¬ yea that sftp is a real ***** to setup.... lawl10:17

nnulljoaopinto¬ i know this10:17
Guest84286ok10:17
byhoo?10:17
* nnull takes off sarcasm hat10:17
nnulli tried to tell him to use sftp, which is like there waiting to be used10:18
Guest84286i guess the word "whore" and "porno" are unfamily-freindly10:18
nnulldunno why u need scp unless your programming/scripting10:18

foges_dr_willis: so if i do: scp /home/foges/hi.txt c:\hi.txt , PuTTy will be able to interpret that i want to copy from the remote server to my local computer?10:19
cloud-eSound on!10:19
cloud-eNikolam, Tony! Thank you both!10:19
[admin]cloud-e, most welcome10:19
dr_willisfoges_,  no idea. try it and see..  putty is not a ssh server i thought it was just a client.10:19
nikolamcloud-e, We are all preased it worked for you :)10:20
joaopintofoges: scp copies between paths, ever local, or remote using ssh, it does not allow you to copy a file from a server on a putty session to your local system10:20
joaopintofoges_, for that you need to use an scp/sftp capable client10:20
foges_dr_wllis, yeah im just using it as my ssh client on my windows computer. ill give it a try10:21
cloud-eAwesome.. okay so I disabled my onboard card on the bios and started Ubuntu up and nearly gave myself a heart attack with the speakers being so loud!10:21
cloud-e:)10:21
joaopintofoges_, use filezilla or winscp10:21
[admin]foges_, search for winscp10:21
Some_uxI have a bit of a problem, most of the help i find for ubuntu management is GUI based. but I run everything in commandline. I need some help in how to setup a hdcp and routing (with firewall)10:21
foges_jaoipinto, ok, ill use winscp then, thanks.10:21
cloud-eNikolam, I do do that command you gave me to create that sound file. Both of you were awesome! How much do I owe you guys? :p10:22
Daremonaihow can i send the 'end of file' in echo? (inside a makefile) I want to do: echo "1 2 3" | ./a.out where a.out takes 1 stdin input. so it should run 3 times, with 1 2 3 and then stop running10:22
nikolamcloud-e, you own us that you will help, too someone else, sometimes :)10:22
cloud-eNikolam, that sounds like a plan. I am a Uber Ubuntu noob though :P.10:23

Shirakawasunahi!  I have a friend and installed ubuntu 8.04 on one of their old (not generally in use) laptops a little while ago, now when it boots it can't mount the root partition.  I haven't been able to properly do any diagnosis as I didn't have a linux disc with me, but it's claiming to not find /dev/disk/by-uuid/<the uuid for the disk>.  Is this a common problem anyone's heard about, so I can be prepared for success or failure when I try10:25
Shirakawasunaagain?10:25
[admin]Some_ux, iptables is not easy though , you have to learn alot10:25
cloud-eAhh its late10:25
nikolamsome_ux maybe you could try to use tightvncserver and port forward through ssh to log to is with gui, too?10:25
Some_uxI log from a vista machine, I use putty10:25
ShirakawasunaI've had /dev/disk/by-uuid fail before, I think on a cd-rom drive, so I'm hoping it's a glitch and not a borked HD10:25
molgrumany idea how to play windows media 9 .wma in ubuntu?10:26
nikolamcloud-e, You can use ntfs-3g for that and list partition in /etc/fstab10:26
[admin]Shirakawasuna, use paste.ubuntu.com and paste there your /boot/grub/menu.list10:26
andycasI cant use autocomplete function when i use sudo prefix in terminal. Whats wrong?10:26
[admin]molgrum, mplayer10:26
Some_uxI will look into iptables10:27
[admin]molgrum, with win32 codecs10:27
molgrum[admin]: what package is that?10:27
cloud-eNikolam, I am not sure how to do that, I am reading this link on how to do it.  http://www.arsgeek.com/2006/09/25/ubuntu-tricks-how-to-mount-your-windows-partition-and-make-it-readwritable/10:27
[admin]andycas, sudo apt-get install bash-completion10:27
nikolammolgrum, with vlc?10:27
[admin]molgrum, sudo apt-get install mplayer10:27
Some_uxOh, I also installed webmin10:28
molgrum[admin]: i have mplayer installed but it doesn't recognize the format10:28
molgrumnikolam: same thing with vlc10:28
[admin]molgrum, goto mplayer.hu and search for all-xxxxxx-codecs.tar.bz10:28
Some_uxSo maybe webmin is a bit more user friendly than iptables ?10:28
andycas[admin]: i have bash-completion, and it works as long as i dont use sudo in front of the command10:28
nikolamcloud-e, you should also install ntfsprogs10:28
[admin]molgrum, through command line, mplayer [media_file] and paste me the error10:28
nikolamcloud-e, that is too old10:29
cloud-eNikolam?10:29
molgrum[admin]: http://rafb.net/p/YIVRX538.html10:29
cloud-eShould I not follow that tutorial for accessing the ntfs partition, Nikolam?10:29
[admin]andycas, bash-completion doesn't work when using su , though it works using sudo from your regular login, but if it doesn't complete, then the command you're typing is wrong10:29
nikolamcloud-e, all you need to do is install ntfs-3g, ntfs-config and ntfsprogs10:29
nikolamcloud-e, and add partition in /etc/fstab10:29
nikolami think no10:30
cloud-ehmm10:30
cloud-eNikolam, let me look those apps up.10:30
[admin]molgrum, it says : Audio: no sound Video: no video, does it really work on other operating systems ?10:31
[admin]molgrum, it seems the file is damaged10:31
[admin]molgrum, could you check the size of the file please10:31
molgrum[admin]: it says something about codecs not available too10:31
molgrum6,7M squeaky1.wma10:31
methodshow do i make a script run when a certain device is plugged in ??  my u727 evdo device comes up as a cdrom1 and i have to eject it so it then reassigns it self... is there perhaps another way?10:32
hateballmolgrum☠ It might be one of those wma's with the new wmp11 codec10:32
hateballmolgrum☠ Which, there is no decoder for on Linux as of yet10:32
molgrumhmm then maybe that's the case :/10:33
molgrumso there's nothing i can do?10:33
skyviperHow to enable universe and multiverse repos?10:33
[admin]molgrum, wait please im figuring i out10:33

rohani want to install ubuntu from an usb pen drive, without burning a CD. how do i do that?10:36
Shirakawasuna(not immediately available, of course)10:36
Shirakawasunarohan: there are guides, but I *think* you only need to copy the files over to the usb drive and make sure your computer can boot from usb.10:36
dr_willisrohan,  i use that 'unetbootin' tool to make a bootable usb stick from a iso image.10:36
skyviperoutbackwifi I am there, but don't see any repos called that way or at least any list?10:36
outbackwifiskyviper: options 2 and 4 have universe and multiverse in brackets10:36
dr_willisrohan,  it makes it easy.10:36
rohanShirakawasuna: there is no straight forward way, like fedora has? i think this was supposed to be one of the goals of intrepid ibex10:37
vinantimy version of ubuntu is 8.04 and i am trying to connect to gprs from my laptop via bluetooth10:37
[admin]Shirakawasuna, just when u r there, use the e key for edit, and instead of root=label=.... or root=UUID=.... use root=/dev/sdxx where sdxx is the correct root10:37
tylerrohan: yes unetbootin  has worked for me everytime10:37
axel_shi, is it possible to change the priority of a running process?10:37

outbackwifimagnetron: oh ok didnt notice :)10:38
skyviperoutbackwifi and one more quest: I don't have deb command. How to get it?10:38
Shirakawasuna[admin]: indeed10:38
rohanok, but unetbootin is not an official ubuntu tool right? there is no "official" way to do it?10:38
outbackwifiskyviper: no one has; deb is the extension of the package files10:38
joaquinmoutbackwifi, is that the best option ?10:38

nmh-j2grawThedjatclubrock: depending on what you want to do, you have various options.  You could use the kaserver (afs kerberos, basically), or you could use a separate kdc (say mit, himdal, etc..)11:02
cloud-eCrap... how do I umm... check to see all the partitions on my system? What Nikolam helped me do and Outbacks suggestion to do the -0 Force command published a 20GB partition but not the one with all the files. So I am thinking these steps need to be done to my 100GB partition, I just dont know how to find out where it is?11:03
outbackwificloud-e: sudo fdisk -l should list all partitions11:03

nmh-j2grawThedjatclubrock: I am unfamiliar with using the kaserver for anything but afs (are little at that).  I have used heimdal for afs, there is a bit of setup, but if you are doing kerberos (or afs) you should be ready for that.11:03
