KenBW22Bachiir: this is why i hate flash00:23
kerinubuntu4me: ah.  well, you could run windows through a VM inside ubuntu but you can't just boot the windows on your hard drive inside linux.00:23
BachiirYeah, I hate flash, too. One of my courses requires that you do online homework via their flash applet. It works fine on my debian box, but it's currently out of commission, so I'm doing it on this (my ubuntu laptop). I didn't realize that it had this issue until just now.00:23
hatemtmtmhi i'm new use at ubuntu , can i hack by ubuntu?!!00:23
kerinubuntu4me: i've heard itunes works in Wine, but as far as I can tell that's a filthy lie.00:23
ubuntu4mekerin:  Sure you can... w/ VMWare, but it's not on the ubuntu livecd.00:24
KenBW22Bachiir: you could try upgrading to flash 10 from adobe's site00:24
Fezzlerhttp://paste.ubuntu.com/63069/00:24
ubuntu4mekerin:  ok..  sounds like I'm SOL w/ the livecd then?00:24

FlannelFezzler: No data loss, no path loss (since they're still sda1 and sdb1).  You'll end up needing to first delete the rest of your partitions, and then expand the first partitions.  But more or less, those steps were correct, yes.00:52
Flannelokidogi: It's in the default storage location then.  Either in your mail spool, or somewhere in your homedir (perhaps ~/Maildir)00:52

alanbshepard70Crud I forgot to add my question. How do I fix the above error?02:12
army12bcvista*02:12
scunizigroceryheist, you could boot the live cd, mount both drives, copy what you need to the ubuntu drive then reinstall grub to the drive you want.. or just do the grub thing and boot to do what you need.02:12

alanbshepard70Flannel: Thanks, you're a lifesaver. I thought Ubuntu would make it darn near impossible to get to my files since Linux users are very security aware.02:19
Flannelalanbshepard70: physical access is always a weak point.  And there's really very few ways of securing against it.  (you can always do what you just said, boot a liveCD and copy off files, etc)02:20

CarlFKwhat is the repo's I can get vmware from?02:51
bobbob1016fr500, It is possible, I think you need to use gl or something.  As in I use my nvidia card for decoding on my mythbuntu PC by putting "-vo -gl" in my mplayer line02:51
MrExceptionjjdiamond: and most things should be able to play flac, mplayer for sure, also check out audacious if you want something that acts like winamp02:51
flamedryadpleade help02:51

scuniziCarlFK, if you want vmware get it directly from vmware.. It'll be up to date02:52

* rocknlnx I jave a file I downloaded called GalleryRemote.1.5.Linux.VM.bin Can someone please give mt the terminal sytaax to install it on to my system?02:52

Commie_Caryhansengel, heck, there isnt a linux port, theres a windows port ;)02:52
dsmith_lol02:52
scuniziCarlFK, you should also look at virtualbox..02:52
CarlFKvmware-player is what I am looking for, but can't figure out what repo it is in02:52
hansengelrocknlnx: Probably `sh GalleryRemote.1.5.Linux.VM.bin`02:53
hansengelCarlFK: There's a .rpm that installs that package on VMWare's site02:53
CarlFKhansengel: there is a repo somewhere - either ubuntu, vmware or maybe a helpful  person - been over a year sense I used it02:53
CarlFKI nomally use qemu, but trying to help someone out with running ubuntu in vmware, so I need to use vmware :)02:54
hansengelCarlFK: Why not just download it from the site so you don't have to search for a repo?02:54
scunizihansengel, CarlFK .rpm's you don't want to install on a .deb system.. get the tar and install it .. it will compile itself02:54
hansengelscunizi: I downloaded the .rpm and used Alien to convert to .deb02:54

hansengelrocknlnx: Okay then, if that didn't work you'll have to check out the README or INSTALL file02:55
scunizihansengel, that's not recomended.......  CarlFK no.. if you want it .. it's sudo ./vmware-install.pl or something and it looks for the compiler and does it automatically.. not like a self compiled program..02:55

hiltonmy understanding was having a password-less root was bad idea, so I set one.04:27

slevenmaco: but when i run it it complains : import: command not found and so on for every row04:47
n8tuser1zezu-> use the full path?04:48

slevenmaco ^04:48
zezun8tuser1, doesn't help !04:48
hiltonHow can I view running processes?04:48
hex4def6top04:48
macosleven: import?04:48
n8tuser1zezu-> give an example, where you have the toolchain installed, and the command you used04:49
macosleven: that's because your script is just plain broken04:49
slevenmaco: import re04:49
macosleven: or.....hrm it starts with #! /usr/bin/python, doesn't it?04:49
macosleven: it looks like it's trying to run it in the shell instead of as python04:49
slevenmaco: lol ofc, after i change it ;)04:49
zezun8tuser1, http://rafb.net/p/dXke8E52.html04:50
hex4def6So... anyone know where the default CFLAGS are? I'd hate to have to do a text search of every file on my drive... :)04:50
macosleven: so the first line has the #! stuff?04:50
slevenyes i changed that now and it works, thanks :)04:50
n8tuser1zezu-> use the full path?04:51
slevenim interested in hiltons question, how do i view all running processes?04:51
slevenand their pids04:51
n8tuser1sleven->  ps -aux04:51
macosleven: ps -e04:51
hex4def6or top04:52
zezun8tuser1, doesn't help at all : bash: /home/zezu/bleed/tools/arm-2008q3/bin/arm-none-eabi-addr2line: No such file or directory04:52
zezustrange eh ?04:52
n8tuser1zezu-> do another ls -la  and repaste the results of this04:52
hex4def6zezu: is this beagle related? :)04:52
slevenis: kill PID dangerous? can it cause trouble closing a process like that?04:52
zezui'm thinking its a hard link or smth, b/c there is another dir that has the same tools w/o the prefix04:52
n8tuser1hex4def6-> you've got a beagle?04:53
zezuhex4def6, yes04:53
hex4def6I though't I'd seen you in #beagle04:53
zezutrying to build my own setup for it.. playing around some04:53
macosleven: no, that just sends sigterm, so it's telling the app to close itself nicely04:53

csilkalthough that might not print status till after the copy04:54
csilknot sure04:54
zezuhex4def6, yes, i built one but im not ready to try it :)04:54
hiltonOkay... one last annoying question. I started an upgrade window, which said it encountered an error and halted, so I closed the window. Now I want to start downloading updates, but it says another package manager is in use (probably from the cancelld window).04:54
hiltonIs this a running process that I can find and kill, or was a change made to a file somewhere to say it's in use ..?04:54
macohilton: in a terminal, try "sudo dpkg --configure -a"04:55
kkathmanGreetings all - I have both ubuntu and kubuntu-desktop installed on my system, if I do the upgrade will that update both?04:55
macokkathman: yes04:55
zezueveryone has read/exec idk wtf the problem is04:55
kkathmanmaco reliably?04:55
antonohello, anybody can help me to understand my fault with PPA packaging?04:55
slevenmaco: ok sometimes on windows when i runa program of mine it eats up all the memory and it even freezes the task manager so i cant close it. i have heard that linux-systems by default kill such processes as soon as they eat up to much resources, true? such things never happens on linux then?04:55
hiltonkg: status database area is locked by another process04:55
hiltonerr, dpkg:04:55
HorizonXPthanks fro the suggestion, going to try it :)04:56
macokkathman: yes04:56
kkathmanmaco ok - thanks...I've just had some probs in the past with dual upgrades04:56
macokkathman: well, if you use one of the supported methods. and you dont hit a bug i dont know about. but yes, itll update everything that's instaled04:56
oly562kkathman: will apt-get update update all files? i don't see why not...04:56
LimCoreis it safe to reset mysql root password on a running live server host?04:56
HorizonXPyeah, it's at least showing me what files it's copying currently. good enough, thanks!04:56
macokkathman: if you do dist-upgrade instead of using "do-release-upgrade" or update-manager, it should be fine04:56
kkathmanmacd,  what is the "supported" method then??04:57
macokkathman: backwards04:57
antonodo anybody knows why PPA buildd doesnt install buid-depends for my package?04:57
antonohttp://launchpadlibrarian.net/18935765/buildlog_ubuntu-intrepid-i386.ignuit_0.0.10-ppa6_MANUALDEPWAIT.txt.gz04:57
macokkathman: *don't* do apt-get dist-upgrade04:57
kkathmanmaco  ahh ok04:57
macokkathman: either use update-manager or run "do-release-upgrade"04:57
n8tuser1zezu-> dont know, try another xterm and relaunch it04:57
hiltonmaco: dpkg: status database area is locked by another process04:57
ArkoldThossomeone that haves experience doing packages and so?04:57
kkathmanmaco I did the dist-uprade before - changed the sources.list and did that04:57
macokkathman: yeah, that hasnt been recommended in a few years04:57
slevenmaco: ok sometimes on windows when i runa program of mine it eats up all the memory and it even freezes the task manager so i cant close it. i have heard that linux-systems by default kill such processes as soon as they eat up to much resources, true? such things never happens on linux then?04:57
zezun8tuser1, still does it !04:58
ArkoldThosi have an application, i have compiled it but it doesnt have INSTALL feature, it ask me to move and copy files and stuff04:58
macosleven: i have no idea04:58
ArkoldThosi want to add install feature into itr04:58
ArkoldThosit*04:58
antonohilton, you should close another package managers before04:58
oly562ok so if i do a sudo apt-get update --do-release-upgrade on 6.6 it will upgrade to 6.10? lol04:58
hiltonantono, none are open.04:58
macohilton: bleh, ok try this: ps -ef | grep apt04:58
oly562or jump to 8.x04:58
macooly562: 8.04. 6.10 is dead.04:58
antonohilton, do you have htop installed?04:58
oly562i wonder if i can do a 2 version jump ;) with apt-get, that would be impressive04:58
oly562yes maco you said that earlier ;)04:59
macooly562: stop saying 8.x  All ubuntu releases have 2 digits after the .04:59
antonohej hey, is there anyone PPA owner?04:59
kkathmanmaco so you do the do-release-upgrade from the Alt-F2 ?04:59
oly562why?04:59
hiltonantono: Seems so.04:59
macooly562: and skipping releases (other than LTS->LTS) is not supported04:59
macokkathman: do-release-upgrade is a terminal thing, so i think you'd want a terminal in case it wants to throw an error05:00
antonohilton, try to find in htop and kill'em all one of (update-manager, synaptic, packagekitd, aptitude, dpkg) :)05:00
kkathmanahh ok...is that a sudo command then ?05:00
macooly562: because if you sa 6.x it could mean either 6.06 or 6.10 which were *very* different. those aren't "point releases" they are *full* releases05:00
hiltonantono: I started an "upgrade" script which then had an error and shutdown...now I'm trying to update and I'm being told another manager is in use.05:00
n8tuser1zezu-> thats a script right? check with  file arm-xxxxx05:00
hiltonmaco: What am I looking for with that ps command?05:00
oly562its linux to me, and most linux distros if not all, use a number then a dot then a number or two,,, but i see your point... but relating to my question, its a complete 2 version jump regardless05:01
macohilton: seeing if there are any apt or synaptic processes running05:01
antonohilton, seems it leaves .lock file somwhere in /var/run ...05:01
oly562back to my question... would it allow from 6.whatever to 8.whatever.. yes or no05:01
macooly562: i said "other than LTS->LTS" both 6.06 and 8.04 were LTS releases, and that is *not* a 2 release jump. that's a 4 release jump05:01
antonohilton, or follow maco's way.. .try to find other packagemanager05:01
oly562sorry i dont know what LTS means05:01
=== FrozenFire__ is now known as FrozenFire

Dulakoly562 long term support05:02

antonooly562, Lts = long term support05:02
oly562thanks Dulak05:02
zezui guess that is the problem05:02
n8tuser1zezu-> you're trying to run it on a 64bit?05:02
macooly562: do you know how ubuntu's numbers work?05:02
zezun8tuser1, yes05:02
oly562not really interested05:02
antonohej, do anyone have personal package archive?05:02
n8tuser1zezu-> that will not work then, lest you have the correct libraries05:03
macooly562: 8 is for 2008.  04 is for April05:03
zezun8tuser1, i didn't e ven think about that really05:03
antonoi can't get my package builded05:03

hiltonI can't get htop to kill it ... how else?05:04
zezuhow can i set it up in ubuntu to be able to run 32b apps as well ?05:04

Demihow can i reinstall ubuntu on a computer that has ubuntu already? i cant find this anywhere05:07
macohilton: thatll show up if you're installing something from a third-party repo instead of just from the official repos. if thats the case, install it if you trust the source05:07
oly562so... im sorry maybe i missed it, can i use apt-get to upgrade to 8?05:07
oly562from 6?05:07
macohilton: could also be that its happening because you're using an unsupported version of ubuntu...the keys might be gone05:07
oly562yes or no, and what switch do i need05:07
n8tuser1Demi-> its possible, you want to install on another partition?05:07
Dulakoly562: not directly no, you'd have to upgrade through the intervening releases05:07
macooly562: lemme find the wiki page05:07
Dulakoly562: you're better off doing a clean install05:07

n8tuser1Demi-> its possible, you want to install on another partition?05:08

hiltonn8t: What is this, Windows?05:08
Ashexsetting up mpd and for lastfm, wants an md5 of the password05:08
Dulakmaco: i missed they are both LTS05:08

DulakChris_Britton: nope, not afaik05:20
n8tuser1Chris_Britton-> if you are creative enuff, with using netcat perhaps05:20

DulakDemi: how much ram you have?05:35
outbackwifiPulpie: and the whole process just ends there? or does it boot up completely after some time05:36
Demidulak like 348 or something05:36
Demii just reserved 1.5gb for swap05:36
DulakDemi: I'd do like 1 gig swap, 12 gig /, rest on /home05:36
Pulpieoutbackwifi: it boots up into what I can tell somewhat is the login screen of gnome05:36

ubottuArkoldThos: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!05:40

sarthorr00tintheb0x, mikrotik is the solution for that, but i dont want to use other pc.06:07

ubottuLAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)06:08

bullgard4"In earlier times" (TM) there was a project /Documentation/Configure.help, which apparently explained the meaning of the switches in the config file (/boot/config-2.6.24-21-generic).

jim_padmin__: gnome or kde is a matter of personal preference. gnome apps can run fine on kde and vice versa. some like gnome for a reason, some like kde for another reason. i like gnome but i think that some kde apps like k3b are light years ahead of their gnome "cousins"06:12
r00tintheb0x'heheh @ outbackwifi06:12
RefrusJimatleast 3, sometimes as many as 5 windows computers. I only need to access one of the shares.06:12

rwwhow is bunty broke? how is bunty broke? how linux get fixtered?06:31
outbackwifiEF_Codd_: now that we know someone called bunty is broke; how can the ubuntu support channel help you?06:31
EF_Codd_Well, I decided to handroll a new bunty. That included all the libraries, especially libc06:32
PincusHi, i'm wondering where I can find some help/info. For whatever reason, Ubuntu turns to a black screen after it had loaded from the disc. So it boots, but then the screen goes black. I can Ctrl-Alt F2 to get to the console however.06:32
RolaultenHello everyone...kinda simple...trying to set up ssh on my desktop so I can save useing (and finding ) a jump drive to move files between computer, however I'm stumped on how to download a file from the sever to the local computer...06:32
EF_Codd_So, I rewrote libc, but now am getting some strange behaviour.06:32
garryfreI  installed an IDE hard drive to my machine that already had  windows on a sata drive. After doing so, booting of windows slowed to a  crawl. I am not using a boot loader,   just setting the bios to boot the ubuntu drive. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this?06:33

Rolaultencool, thanks06:34
EF_Codd_Flannel it was a serious question.06:34

outbackwifipaul68: if thats the case then you probably want it to function as a gateway; in that case only that part of your server that is connected to the LAN should give out DHCP addresses06:43

paul68HorizonXP: ok will do06:56
HorizonXPbut change the router's settings so that the DHCP server is turned off, and if you go into advanced configuration, you should see an option that you can change from Gateway mode to Router. Do that. Oh and make sure to change the router's IP addy to one that falls within your DHCP server's range. and you're done.06:56
[yan]rww, im not sure asi dont really know how to send a test mail :p06:57
paul68HorizonXP: so it's going to act as a switch, is it then also possible to add a second ap to the linksys?06:57
jim_phow can i fire up the wireless from command line? the hotspot is on dhcp and it can send me an ip06:57
jim_pno wep or stuff06:57
HorizonXPyes it is06:57
outbackwifibigboy776: dont do that; this way its easier; ask her to boot normally; i will relay the instructions thro you and with luck she should be up and running06:57

outbackwifijim_p: iwconfig06:57
riz0njust out of curiosity, my linux server is sitting at a remote location. i use putty to remotely administer the server from a shell line. however, i have to manually startx to get gui up and running, then i can vnc to the gui remotely.. is there a way to startx from the shell via putty?06:58
bigboy776outbackwifi -> i jacked my brothers phone to do the communication, thanks for your help06:58
outbackwifiriz0n: yes there is an option to execute a remote command06:58
jim_poutbackwifi: i think that it will just show me the wireless activity thats on06:58
rww[yan]: ah. i'm not too good with mail, but i was wondering, because all of the examples in your log were gmail, and gmail filters out stuff it thinks is spam (which might include mail from residential IP addresses, if you're in that situation)06:58
flicehi06:59
paul68HorizonXP: can I msg you?06:59
[yan]rww, yeh the reason its all gmail is that the onyl thing its tryign to email is mdadm raid alerts to my gmail address06:59
HorizonXPpaul68: yea sure06:59
outbackwifijim_p: no, it will also let you configure; read the man page for iwconfig; you can set things like ssid; channel etc; then use dhcpif iface-name to get an ip address06:59
riz0nright now the gui (X server) is telling me i need to restart, but i know when i reboot i will not be able to startx till i physically access the server06:59

freetownoutbackwifi, kernel panic: http://pastebin.centos.org/2241107:44
flicewhat is the default configuration files that the "setxkbmap" looks in? long time ago, I configured my win keys to have specific keysym, and now I want to get rid of it, but can't find the config file which I tweaked then. right now the win keys get that keysym even when I just enter "setxkbmap" command07:44
geremyreqqit: scponly is good, although I'll admit I find ssh an invaluable tool07:45
reqqitgeremy, however, the folder I want them to access is inside another users home directory, I guess I will ln -s to it and give them write / read / delete permissions? can they get out of there is I ln-s outside of the chroot?07:45
kane77where can I find package unrar-nonfree? I seem to have it installed on my desktop but I cannot install it no my laptop (desktop is amd64 laptop x86)07:45
reqqitgeremy, I ssh to my server of course, that is how I will set this up, but this guy won't find it invaluable, he will just dump files07:45

ricardo_GOODMORNING VIETNAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!07:46
groceryheis1can i please get some help?07:46
geremyreqqit: that depends on the level of security you're willing to tolerate. it is almost always possible for root to escape a chroot, one way or another, so the question becomes limiting the ability of another to root your system07:46
reqqitgeremy, so, do you think I can ln -s to a folder in another users directory to give them write acces there?07:46
kane77ay^, hmm I guess it does not unrar rars in newer format07:46

moDumassneer, cool, can you voice chat with yahoo in pidgin anyone?07:53

reqqitgeremy - it sounds like just adding layers of illusionary security - unless there is a bug in scponly / noshell, those steps are redundant, correct? I do agree that it is 'correct' though - except unless it is well documented, and a best practice, you are more likely to introduce more issues than you plug, because it is one instance of code, run and tested once...07:55
ay^bullgard4: yeah.. That I am.07:55
christianphi all07:55
outbackwififreetown: should be on the box it came in. if it is, that board is supported and listed in the linux hcl07:55
geremyreqqit: once you've done that, the only way to abuse the chroot is with a preexisting socket- so you're not going to pipe out, you're going to pipe in. get a program to sync the contents of the chroot from outside of it, to a known location07:55
UbuntuHelperhi07:55
reqqitthat is, logically, removing the possibility of kernel to escape is one thing, unless, like I said, there is a bug there - just like there could be a bug in scponly / no shell07:55
reqqitso on the equation, do you trust the lcap code more than scponly?07:55
UbuntuHelperhi everyone07:55

darkness3477Hi all. I've just put in a 8600gt video card, and have installed the driver for it through the hHardware Drivers... thing. However, my resolution is at 640x480 and it's as high as it can go. I've loaded up Urban Terror and am getting 125fps (As high as the game allows), so the cards working. Any idea on how to fix this?07:56
reqqitgeremy, so in this scenario, the guy would have shell access?07:56
outbackwififreetown: oh i thot the livecd was kp'ing :)07:56
geremyreqqit: not to point anything out, but we just had a MASSIVE ssh vulnerability that went undetected for what, a year and a half? two years? bugs happen. security flaws happen. count on them.07:56
christianpi need (on my 8.04) to install a nautilus with tabs. I read somewhere next nautilus release (on 8.10) it has this feature. Is there a way to add it to my 8.04 distro?07:56
geremyreqqit: they have access only to whatever you put in the chroot07:57
jim_pdarkness3477: do you have a proper xorg.conf?07:57
freetownoutbackwifi, nope. the LiveCD and the alternate installer had no problems at all :(. It was after installation was completed that the kernel decided to give me a surprise07:57
reqqitgeremy, thanks for the info - I saw a HP lockdown seminar a while back when they were pushing some linux flavor, it had a nice kernel app that meant root couldnt' do anything either, and a few nice hardware, localised to the machine ways of opening security again.07:57
darkness3477jim_p, I've just let Ubuntu set everything up, so if it does it properly, I assume so :P07:57
freetown[yan], you need get a copy of the bounce reason from gmail.com07:57
geremyreqqit: its built into the kernel. its called lcap.07:57
reqqitgeremy, that was the limited keyspace?07:57
reqqitthat was a bug in the transport security then I guess07:57

hughThey're both nvidia geforces, if that helps07:58
outbackwififreetown: can you boot with livecd, mount the boot and check if the kernel and initrd image its using the same as that on the livecd?07:58
reqqitgeremy, when you say they will only have access to what is chrooted - are you saying they still have a shell? I am looking for a workable, 10 minute solution / best practice / if something goes wrong I'll hear about it on slashdot/ solution07:58
freetown[yan], just create another user on your box and point root to that user in aliases07:58
reqqits/slashdot/reddit07:58
darkness3477Opened up the xorg.conf now. Under plug n PLay, it's only at 640x 480@60.07:58

darkness3477jim_p, I've used Ubuntu for awhile now. Tried Arch for something different. I liked it, but I had to tweak too many things, and my skills aren't up to that level :P08:09
zirodaymisteralexander: you can find the pid of the process with the command ps -ax | grep <commandname> and then use kill -9 <commandpid> to kill it08:09
misteralexanderjim_p:  LOL -- How'd you know it was Firefox?  Okay, let me try it.08:10
jim_phugh: you mean you instaled a whole other video card, or just one more, like sli?08:10

geremyreqqit: that doesn't really make any sense. the danger isn't in compiling it, the danger is in risking a broken chroot. static compilation just makes it simpler to make your chroot08:10

HorizonXPbullgard4: but it's exactly that. opening the applications menu takes forever. opening terminal takes forever. typing commands (let alone executing) takes forever. all because it keeps accessing the CD. it's like it's not loading anything into RAM09:20
HorizonXPjim_p: i could, but the livecd's all loaded, and i'm afraid if i restart the comp it won't come back again09:20
boringgo_beep_yourself: it's using the default gnome theme i think... i am also running amarok on gnome and mine looks exactly like yours...09:20

geremyif anybody knows how to get s-video working on the intel 945 chipset I'd really appreciate some help09:22
jim_pHorizonXP: well unless you are on a pc that has 128MB ram and a 0.5Ghz cpu, thats a great amount of time! i am sure its a bad burn though09:23
HorizonXPjim_p: it doesn't really matter now tho, i'm just using it to backup my cousin's laptop cuz her Windows install has crashed. i think i got all her documents09:23
HorizonXPjim_p: you're probably right. if I had just burned another CD, this could've been avoided. oh well09:24
peciskhi there, where Seahorse keeps mine signing key? I have to restore my computer, but I didn't backup it usual way, so I have to restore it from /home/user backup09:24

jim_pHorizonXP: well next time dont use a live cd with loads of stuff to load! parted magic loads on my laptop in less than 2 minutes and i go insane waiting for it. its 50MB iso and it boots from ram. perfect for saving situations09:25

JohnFlux2is it possible to mount an nfs partition so that all the files are owned by some user?09:54
xHemlockI'm also a newbie to UBuntu.09:54
ikoniaOrs ok - lets find out what happens when you do "gksudo synpatic" from teh command line, there should be some warnings, then something fatal if it closes09:54
Oprtzit says " Package w32codecs is not available, but is referred to by another package.09:54
