ubottuUsually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.03:24
mgolischkillerbyte: its internal disks, not removeable or something, for that i would agree with you, but you usualy dont change internal disks all day so its a one time task to set that up03:24

ubotturoffe you need the part about atheros cards, it tells you how there: Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) release notes can be found here: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/81003:28
zirodayrfxcasey: overclocking is really, really not recommended here. Anyway you should use the nvclock app in the repos03:28
FloridaBSDLisa1: : What chipset  are you running on?03:28
zirodayLisa1: okay, what graphics card do you have (if you know?)03:29
roffeThanks a lot ziroday! I'll check it out03:29

zirodayrfxcasey: erm no, you probably did something different :)03:30
panglossOptimus997: use dpkg03:30
rfxcaseyziroday, they were great on first install03:30
rfxcaseyziroday, so is it not suggested to use envy in hoary03:31
Optimus997is dpkg used like apt-get?03:31
zirodayrfxcasey: yep03:31

kingsofleonopti yes but it's much more complicated03:31
panglossOptimus997: $man dpkg03:31
rfxcaseyziroday, yeah it never worked right for me03:31
zirodayOptimus997: sorry, I don't know how to go about that. Have you checked in backports?03:31

zirodayLisa1: can you do compiz --replace at the command line and see what it says please03:33
roffeziroday: so, they should be activated eventhough I can't get access to wireless in the nwm?03:33
zirodayrfxcasey: yep, thats fine03:33
panglossrebel_kid: yes, use $chown03:33
zirodayroffe: sorry, I don't follow03:33

rfxcaseyziroday, how do I save this03:42
tylis it exactly the same as 32 bit pakages?03:42
WebcamWondertyl, Your repositories would be different. So you install it just like regular installation. sudo aptitude install <package_name>03:42
tyloh i see03:42
zirodayWebcamWonder: if you look http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us your card doesn't appear03:42

tylhow do i know if i have installed the x64 version03:42

WebcamWonderziroday, That is weird. On one of their changelogs, they say that my card's support is added03:43
zirodayWIGGMPk: the default gnome screenshot app takes .png files03:43
Skry^Munchkinguy, actually i'm not sure afterall if it's on by default :P check system > preferences > appearance > visual effects. if its something else than none, then it is.03:43
WIGGMPkziroday: i know that, but what is .png file associate with?03:43
panglossAlfalfaz: you have to restore grub03:43
WebcamWondertyl, No. The package names are same. However, your OS will automatically fetch the correct package based on your distrubution03:43
zirodayWebcamWonder: you sure its a GeforceGo?03:43

WebcamWondertyl, If they have the 64bit build, it would be present as the same package name. It is the job of apt-get to figure out the correct build for your pc. Normally there are about 5 different builds for 1 single package03:47
tyldexter: i know that but i am trying to make sure all the packages are 64 bit on my server03:47

dextertyl; u can install those softwares which are not in ur repos by adding the APT line03:47

WebcamWonderBrainy, Is it burned? Is it ISO? Are you booted into the LiveCD?04:07
rwwBrainy: boot it up and do "uname -a" from a terminal. If it's 64-bit, "x86_64" will be near the end of the output04:07
rwwBrainy: there's probably an easier way, but I don't have a live CD handy to check04:07

gavagaiI have a core 2 duo.  should i stick with the 32 bit ubuntu or 64 bit?04:08
Grey_Lokigavagai, depends how much RAM you have04:08
DanaGgood question.  What benefit does 64-bit give, anyway?04:08
w0ls0n64 bit would prob be faster04:08
DanaGI'll be using 4 gigs.04:08
rwwgavagai: you could use either (core 2 supports 64-bit). it depends on whether you need the benefits of 64-bit or not ;-)04:08
DanaGWhat _are_ those benefits?04:09
KyPoHja64 bit is for prositutes04:09
rwwDanaG: if you're just doing normal desktop work, not much. I use 64-bit because I do distributed computing and have an SSSE3-optimized client for it =/04:09
Skry^gavagai, i'd go with 64-bit, as you have 64-bit cpu and your gonna upgrade to 8 gigs anyways ;)04:10
gavagaii have 2 gig ram04:10

cilkayI've restarted cron.05:22
Brucevdktmpprob: it's /tmp05:22
Veninhow do i find NetPacket for ubuntu? i cant find it in repos05:23
WebcamWonderseaoftea, The point is. Even for WEP. Someone has to spend 10 minutes cracking it. Open is, just open05:23
tmpprobty bruce05:23
n8tuserrussianphysicist-> installed ubuntu inside XP ?  how? or are you referring to wubi?05:23
tmpprobwhat tmp folder bruce?05:24
n8tuserVenin-> do a   apt-cache search  netpacket   assuming thats the name of the package05:24
Brucevdktmpprob: what are you trying to do?05:24
seaofteaI should probably encrypt, though I literally don't have anything to hide.  And when ever I send anything like credit card numbers I only go through 128 bit ssl.05:24

tmpprobtmpprob: chmod 770 tmp/  is the command chmod: cannot access `tmp/': No such file or directory is the output and im in the :/var/www/htdocs/ossec-wui/tmp$ directory05:24
tmpprobis what i tried first sorryr spam05:25
tmpprobwhat im trying to do is05:25
Veninn8tuser: tried that.. cant find it05:25
tmpprob6- Fix the permissions for the tmp directory and restart Apache (for the new permissions to work)05:25
n8tuserVenin-> then maybe it does not exist or has a different name05:25
russianphysicistn8tuser: no, I am not referring to wubi - I was in XP, and insterted the Ubuntu disk and installed it. from within XP. There is a c:/ubuntu which contains all the system files, but since they're in a different file system, windows can't see them, but since I created that while in XP, no partition editor sees it as a separate partition, so my only bootable partition is /dev/sda1, which is hpfs/ntfs05:25
Veninn8tuser: exactly..05:25
Brucevdktmpprob: that's because you're inside tmp05:26
cilkayseaoftea: What if someone uses your network to attack other networks or to send spam?05:26
n8tuserrussianphysicist-> am not sure how you were even able to run the installation from within XP, lest you were using wubi05:26
tmpprobah i see05:26
Brucevdktmpprob: try ../tmp05:26
panglosstmpprob: go up one directory and do it again05:26
seaofteaor do other illegal activities05:26

russianphysicistn8tuser: neither am I, but I know for a fact that what I was using then is not wubi, but a bona fide Ubuntu install disk05:27
storm-zenanyone know how to run alsa-config?05:28
russianphysicistn8tuser: it's the same disk I'm booting off now05:28
seaofteayeah, ok I'm definately going to encrypt05:28
n8tuserrussianphysicist-> you meant you booted off a liveCD or the alternatecd ?05:28
dulakseaoftea: I use wep on my wireless, then openvpn on my clients so everything is really encrypted on wireless, even if they break the wep key they won't break openvpn05:28
storm-zensorry.. alsa-info.. not config.05:28
n8tuserrussianphysicist-> then if that is the same cd, then it is liveCD as you said earlier you are in livecd05:28
ubottuIf you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer). If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP305:28
russianphysicistn8tuser: yes, I am in livecd, like I said above05:29
nachi_hey guys. ive brought a dedicated server with webmin control panel, now i need to move my domains, but first i need to setup the nameservers or somthing... anyone can explain me what i should do ? godaddy dont allow me to redirect the dns servers of the domain to ip address...05:29
seaofteaThanks 2 everbody for answering mine and everyone elses questions.  With out you guys we'd all be left in the dark.05:29
n8tuserrussianphysicist-> so go ahead and re-install the ubuntu05:30
DallasGI need to remotely enable the standard Remote Desktop Connection via ssh -- anyone have any information on that?05:30
cilkayseaoftea, dulak By the time you add the overhead of WEP, OpenVPN, the general suckiness of wireless, you'll have a blazing 14.4 dial-up connection :)05:30
lianimatorvlc player occasionally freezes the video and only sound is playing. I have to rewind a bit and it'll refresh. anyone have this problem?05:30

J-a-k-eI suppose what I'm really asking is does Ubuntu compare to windowsxp when it comes to high quality audio. Talking bookshelf speakers and amp connected to soundcard and active sub also connected to soundcard05:31
russianphysicistn8tuser: I'm not particularly keen on losing all the files/settins/programs I've got set up, I was hoping there'd be a way to do it without reinstalling the whole thing05:31
n8tuserrussianphysicist-> do a fdisk -l  and tell me the results05:31
cilkayJ-a-k-e: You know about the UbuntuStudio project?05:32
n8tuserrussianphysicist-> btw, this a new install today?05:32
dr_willisDallasG,   I sort of did that once on a remote box. by first installing vnc and running gnome inside that vnc session. then i enabled the desktop shareing and set it to always be on , and autologing in. Then once i  reset the box. it would auto login to that user and have remote desktop going.05:32
tmpprobbruse if i showed you some tutorial text could you help me it is alot easier then me a ubuntu newb trying to explain it05:32
Lifesfcould gproftpd problem have something to do with something i have read: Contents-amd64 ?05:32

DallasGI tried adding vnc4server05:32
DallasGI connected, but it was just at command line05:32

tmpprob # vi /etc/group    ..    From:        ossec:x:1002:    To (if your web server user is www):        ossec:x:1002:www  is what i done05:32
seaofteaDoes anyone know of any prog with all of the features of ksynaptics for gnome?  Gsynaptics is missing quite a few.05:33
tmpprob5- Add your web server user (apache, www or nobody) to the ossec group:05:33
centaur5A preseed file that I used with Hardy doesn't point an Intrepid install the right mirror and it still stops for a user when it's not supposed to. Did something change?05:33
dr_willisDallasG,   you must edit the .vnc/xstartup script to run the gnome-session , then quit/restart the vnc4server05:33
tmpprobthe above text05:33
DallasGokay, thanks :)05:33
russianphysicistn8tuser: no, not a new install, I've had it installed for months now, and I didn't do anything when ubuntu crashed, it just sort of stopped working completely randomly, all the programs just crashed and cpu went to 100%05:33
dulakseaoftea: 300k/sec or better usually with openvpn and wep05:33
tmpprob6- Fix the permissions for the tmp directory and restart Apache (for the new permissions to work)05:33
dr_willisDallasG,   vncserver is a bit 'tricky' in that it doese4nt install a totally useable setup05:33

grant931I get this message when trying to do this command:05:36

grant931it is a FAT32 FS, what is going on?05:37
dulakseaoftea: it would be a lot better if I moved openvpn off my linksys router and onto an actual computer05:37
grant931I did05:37
scotlfspangloss, I have a dynex (cheapo best buy brand), have any clue what it really is?05:37
grant931grant@monster:~$ sudo chown grant:users /home/grant/files05:37
grant931chown: changing ownership of `/home/grant/files': Operation not permitted05:37
dulakseaoftea: but my linksys router with the 16mhz cpu gives me 300k, which is fine for anything I care to encrypt05:37
cilkaycentaur5: some of the apps that we depend on haven't been ported to KDE 4 yet so we'll wait until they are before making the leap from Kubuntu Hardy.05:37

Kinkshow can I close an X display from the terminal?05:38
Kinksie. display 305:38
grant931so what is going on?05:38
dulakseaoftea: I have a linux workstation I could put openvpn on for this, but meh, 300k is fine for hitting a bank site or whatever I need to do with full encryption05:38
centaur5cilkay: Well thanks for the heads up. Good luck with KDE it seems to be a mess right now.05:38
panglossgrant931: can you try removing the :users part? thats the only thing that seems wierd05:38
cilkaycentaur5: Actually, what works is working very well. It's just missing some bits.05:38

cilkayJ-a-k-e: Onboard AC97 sound card. External Polk speakers - nothing fancy. I've run XP on the same machine and certainly didn't notice any change one way or the other.05:39
dulakseaoftea: openvpn can work on windows and mac too, I have it on my g/f mac and my roommate's windows lappy05:40
dulakseaoftea: it's quite nifty imo05:40
cilkaycentaur5: Can you pastebin the relevant bits from your preseed file? I'll compare to what I have to see if there's anything obvious.05:40

robert__problem with vmnet config files  i can't get networking going on any vmware appliances05:49
cilkaycentaur5: The syntax of the file is different. preseed is the "native" Debian way. It's much more powerful, apparently, but it's more complex and its documentation is spotty. Kickstart is a "foreign" method adapted from Red Hat. It's very well-documented.05:49

n8tuserrussianphysicist-> that does not seem right, what you pasted shows 78gb05:51

cilkaycentaur5: It sounds like we should be collaborating. I too have a bunch of things on my wishlist. The way that I'm thinking of dealing with what you just said is to use KDE's kiosk tool and cfengine.05:51
swtwhich country are you in dr_willis05:52
russianphysicistn8tuser: right, because from inside ubuntu, it sees the entire hd, the ntfs part too, the entirety of which is 80gb05:52

n8tuserrussianphysicist-> run gparted from that livecd and see if shows same05:53
cilkaycentaur5: I think it'll be very difficult to preseed everything 100%. Besides, even if you get it right now, what happens when you need to make a few changes? You don't necessarily want to have to do preseed installations for a few trivial changes but you also don't want to do those changes manually across an entire network of machines either.05:53

canthonysambagirl, will say localhost, but many times another entry, will exist that should say your hostname NOT localhost05:57
WebcamWondersambagirl, I fixed it by adding my hostname to the /etc/hosts, and giving it the loopback ip address. I don't know about your setting05:57
maxxistjoot like a bad sector on the drive?  or something you can just format away?05:57
canthonysambagirl, if it doesnt match the hostname of the machine sudo fails05:58
scuwolfso many people on this server -_-!05:58
sambagirlahh yes i noticed that it didnt like me to use as loopback url05:58
dr_willisscuwolf,  and its a slow day05:58
sambagirlso that is why it uses 1.1?05:58
WebcamWondersambagirl, I think 127.xxx.xxx.xxx is all loopback05:58
jootmaxxist: Just format away but it is coming from the ibex install some how, Maybe it is a random bug05:59
centaur5cilkay: So if preseeding is more powerful maybe I'll be able to automate partitioning. Kickstart is limited in that area.05:59
jackbesloweverytime I try to make the usb startup disk it gets to 11% and dies on me05:59
canthonyWebcamWonder, yes that is true but i think there is some hackich reason the 1.1 address exists05:59
Lifesfstill no help concerning gproftpd!!!; i gave up a while back on this ever since this and other issues had occured; could i also quickly ask what is that command to check the ip addresses?05:59
sambagirlyes i was just told that just now05:59
maxxistjoot i still think it was your install disc somehow.  did you try to download the alternate disc and reinstall?05:59
cilkaycentaur5: You can certainly automate partitioning. You'll see when I paste my file, which I'm doing now.05:59
canthonysambagirl, WebcamWonder at any rate the true hostname must exist somewhere on
sambagirlso do you force it?05:59
ImBrianI was having troubles with Pulse Audio on 64 bit xubuntu, so I've removed it in favor of Alsa - how can I have X use this as opposed to Pulse (which it seems to continue to attempt to use).  Audio works in console, but if I'm in X, it errors out complaining of failed pulse audio output.06:00
centaur5cilkay: Kickstart allows partitioning but it's done their way which is double the RAM for swap which just isn't necessary nowadays.  :)06:00
sambagirlitsays unknown host when i type ping
canthonysambagirl, what is the output of `hostname` in a terminal06:00
backenfutteranyone know what the initial login password is for vmware-server 2.0 web access06:00
crazzhello all06:00
WebcamWondercanthony, sambagirl, Yup. Just wanted to let you know that I had a similar problem, and fixed it by adding my hostname "my-laptop" with to my /etc/hosts06:00
maxxistjoot which file system type did you use ext3?06:00
jootmaxxist: Yes I did fight after I talked with you but the same problem resulted so that is a consant on four cd's06:00
billybigriggerhow come mysql automatically creates my db's and tables with the collation of latin1_swedish_ci i have my language set to english and my charset MySQL charset:  UTF-8 Unicode (utf8)06:01
jootmaxxist: Yes ext306:01
sambagirlnow it asks if i want to ping broadcast with a -b06:01
canthonysambagirl, sorry is prefix notation for ip addresses, it just means 127.x.x.x06:01
sambagirlahh ok06:01
crazzanyone else having a problem with sound after doing the update in intrepid?06:01
jootmaxxist: and a linux swap06:01
cilkaycentaur5: You can specify whatever you want in kickstart too, at least on Red Hat systems. Anyway, here you go: http://pastebin.com/d482656ca06:01
robert__crazz yes but it's just lower volume than usual06:01
sambagirlso what do you put in there?06:02
maxxistjoot wow.  thats crazy.  i could suggest something even crazier.   download a copy of hardy.  format all the partitions.  and install hardy.  then when hardy is installed.  do a update-manager -d06:02
swtis there anyone want to talk?i am waiting>_<06:02
sambagirl127.0.1.1 jaguar06:02
sambagirlin hosts?06:02
maxxistjoot its a little extreme.06:02
jackbeslowcrazz, I certainly am, pulseaudio never worked for me, since intrepid ALSA does not work either and I am back to OSS06:02
crazzwell my issue is i updated after install a fresh intrepid on my compaq presario 2500 when i tried to restart the laptop it locked on shut down as the part where it says shutting down alsa06:02
panglossswt:  this is a support channel, not a leisure chat channel06:02
canthonysambagirl, you need to get the value of `hostname` in a terminal, and make sure that whatever it is exists in your /etc/hosts file under either or     you may need to use a live cd if you havent set a root password06:02
ImBrianis audio in 8.10 a common complaint?  I did a fresh install today and it's bunk06:03
crazzjackbeslow: how did you fix the no sound issue using oss06:03

jackbeslowI just used the sound preferences panel and switched everything to OSS and then specified it explicitly in all my apps that did not respect that configuration06:04
sambagirlwell it says localhost in host file06:04
sambagirlso iwas adding line jaguar06:04
canthonysambagirl, localhost is not your actual HOSTNAME though06:04
cilkaycentaur5: The only thing that doesn't work is the last bit where I attempt to upload my public key onto the freshly-installed system. Otherwise, it all works.06:04
crazzmy comp locks at the alsa shut down everytime06:04
maxxistjoot let me tell you man.  8.10 hasnt been all that nice to me either.  and I have been using ubuntu full time since warty.  and before that i was a redhat user for 6 years06:04
centaur5cilkay: Looks great though.  This way I can use apt-cacher which is what I wanted in the first place.  I don't know why my kickstart file was only able to do that with only Feisty.06:05

crazzwould it hurt to remove the also drivers and if not how would i go about doing that?06:06
pw-toxicfor example pidgin and skype06:06
cilkaycentaur5: One tip with apt-cacher that will save you hours: put "path_map = ubuntu archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu" in /etc/apt-cacher/apt-cacher.conf Otherwise, it's pretty much standard apt-cacher.06:06
canthonyis it possible to save to the DOCX format and not just read it06:06

WebcamWondercmdbbq, No problem. Look at the man page. There are a few ways of using it. If you just say mp3gain, it scans the file and adjusts on the ID3 tag. There are ways of forcing it to re-encode the file. Man page will help you further06:29

silverdulcetNFS related question, my mount point is owned by me, when mounted it is owned by haldaemon, group: netdev. Is this standard? I have another box that when mounted, the nfs mount point is owned by hplip group:mysql. I cannot write to it unless I add my user to the mysql group.06:30
WebcamWonderpw-toxic, Did you put the entire command in your sessions?06:30
pw-toxicWebcamWonder: yes06:30
pw-toxicWebcamWonder: and i copied it back to a console and used it and the command itself works06:30
WebcamWonderpw-toxic, That is odd. Commands in session don't execute :s... Hold on06:30

pw-toxici did ps -C synergys and the output was empty06:34
dr_willisvegombrei,  it works here.  Hotmail likes to  post some messages like that. Last time I could check some checkboxc on the hotmail page that said let me in anyway, or use some user-agent tool to let firefox appear as a different browser06:35
zcat[1]vegombrei: hotmail are intentionally 'breaking' things if they see linux in the browser string, that is all06:35
panglossphoenixz: try netstat -p06:35
dr_willisvegombrei,  like zcat[1]  said.. its HOTMAIL breaking things. Not a ubuntu/firefox issue at all.06:35

zcat[1]gluonman: hard to say, but yeah, probably.06:39
WebcamWonderpw-toxic, Most likely escape it using the backslash. \' <= that should escape it. If I understand you correctly06:39
IndyGunFreakJosesordo: which wireless driver?06:39
timreichhartso dr willis your saying is better to use serial on ubuntu server for fax06:39
Josesordoty!, lets see06:39

IndyGunFreakdr_willis: lol, are you neurotic?... Gnome/KDE have little in common06:41
WebcamWonderpw-toxic, You need to install "lm-sensors" (I forget, I am not sure) to get the abiulity to add sensors06:41

slopeam installing ubuntu 8.10 on a machine that has vista.  the ubuntu installatation will be on the second physical drive (sdb), while vista is on the first (sda).  The bios is set to use sdb as the first boot device, so I can use GRUB to choose os on boot.  I want Grub on the sdb drive to preserve the vista loader on sda.  Question: What do I choose in the advanced options for the boot loader: sda, sda1, sdb, sdb1?   thanks for any help07:05

army12bcbtw irc commands and ubuntu its a wonder u all even know anything else than script?07:08
slopeI prefer not to install grub to sda, so If I remove this physical drive I can still boot w/ the vista loader.  I can do this by installing each OS with the drive removed during install, then editing menu.list, but I have both in and figure it should be possible.  If I choose sda and remove the sdb drive (ubuntu) will I still be able to run vista?07:08
zcat[1]IndyGunFreak: If you put grub somewhere else, you still need an MBR that knows where to find grub, eg configure an additional entry in NTLDR for it07:08

cojones_hey all, i was trying to add ATI restricted drivers and did something I can't seem to fix07:18
=== _ is now known as Guest9703
cojones_i was using envyng07:18
jim_pdr_willis, ziroday : well its not in my friend's synaptic and i was wondering why. thanks anyway07:19
cojones_anyone know how to get a system back to a vanilla install state without reinstalling?07:19
osbertIndyGunFreak: uh ... nothing?  just praising everybody's patience and niceness.  sometimes people will boot really quickly.07:19
dr_williscojones_,  once you strt using envyng. youmay need to stay with using envyng. and you may need to rerun it every time theres a kernel update07:19
shiki9can videos be played with compiz enabled on an ati card without flickering07:19
IndyGunFreakosbert: oh ok, i took your remark as being satire.07:19
dr_willisshiki9,  they work on my low end laptop.. so yes.. it can work..07:19
cojones_dr_willis: any way to undo it?07:19
ziroday!envyng | cojones_07:19
ubottucojones_: envyng is an updated version of the *UNSUPPORTED* envy package. It is now part of the ubuntu universe repository (envyng-gtk OR envyng-qt) we suggest you use envyng if every other (official/supported) method fails! it can have various results from works, to fails!!!  if you want the very latest drivers from the manufacturer you use them at your own risk07:19
dr_williscojones_,  no idea07:19
zirodaycojones_: did you remove the drivers using envy?07:20
cojones_ziroday: yes, and manually also thru synaptic manager07:20
t7th_SenseSomebody help me. I have win xp and ubuntu at the same HD. Now win xp crashes. Is it save for me to format C: and reinstall win xp?07:20
cojones_my system is working with compiz now... there are just some strange side effects07:20
zirodayjim_p: note that b43-fwcutter was only introduced in intrepid, no package will exist in versions before that07:20
IndyGunFreakenvy, automatix, easyubuntu, etc,...  Why God... Why07:20
crdlbshiki9: it works perfectly with the radeon driver, not so much with fglrx07:20
cojones_side effects: cannot shutdown without hanging07:21
jim_pziroday: well he IS in intrepid!07:21
=== songexe is now known as a5song
cojones_also sound is muted after bootup, this could be due to the shutdown problem07:21
jim_pziroday: i will ask him to apt-get update07:21
zirodayjim_p: ah well that was just my idea, perhaps he didn't apt-get update properly07:21
osbertt7th_Sense: yes, but when you reinstall XP it will mess up grub or whatever your boot loader is so you should save a boot disk that will let you boot back in later.07:21
dingupenguinil be honnest that seems like alot of work for a screen i never see07:22
osbertt7th_Sense: and don't reformat the whole thing, just any partitions that XP is using (probably the 1st one)07:22
holymoooh you WILL want to see that screen when you have multios setup07:23
holymoorest assured07:23
cojones_anyone have any idea how to remove fglrx from a system and go back to using the open source drivers exclusively?07:23
shirishhi all, how can I know what is there in my environment, I know there is a variable called $PATH but no idea how to manipulate it.07:23
ardchoilleshirish: echo $PATH07:24
cojones_i tried my way but that broke my system hehe.. i had to chroot in from a livecd to reinstall the fglrx packages07:24
holymoosudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx?07:24
IndyGunFreakgrub is generally really easy to reinstall from a live CD07:24
ardchoilleshirish: But I highly recommend you not edit that variable07:24
holymoosearch for the fglrx package first to get the right name07:24
shirishardchoille: thanx, did it.07:24
cojones_holymoo: any idea where I could get a vanilla version of xorg.conf?07:24
shirishardchoille: I was trying the same, the only error was echo $ PATH07:24
cojones_i'd like to have that in place first before I wipe fglrx ;)07:24
shirishnotice the space.07:24
* shirish out07:25
ardchoilleshirish: Ah :)07:25
holymoocojones_: xorg is vanilla as far as i know07:25
t7th_Senseosbert: mine is grub. You mean if I dont make emergency disk then my pc won't restart anymore?07:25
holymoocojones_: your only bet is x.org and compile your self if you have masochistic tendencies07:25
cojones_holymoo: what i mean is remove any trace of fglrx being referenced in the startup07:25
crdlbcojones_: you don't really even need an xog.conf anymore07:26
holymoocojones_: that should do it07:26
crdlbcojones_: but you can reset it with sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg07:26
cojones_crdlb, where does X determine which gfx to use now?07:26
IndyGunFreakt7th_Sense: no, if you reinstall windows, it will overwrite the master boot record, and as a result, Grub... Windows *should* boot w/o issue, ut if you dual boot, you'll have to reinstall grub to get back to Linux07:26
holymooapt-get remove --purge even07:26
crdlbcojones_: but make sure you remove xorg-driver-fglrx and reboot07:26
crdlbcojones_: it guesses07:26
jootcan't cojones do a dpgk reconfigure?07:27
IndyGunFreakjoot: maybe, but he used envy... which leaves him envious of people who've not used it.07:27
dan_soo what is this compiz and bburl stuff07:27
t7th_SenseOw I understand. Thank you IndyGunFreak07:27
holymoodpkg-reconfigure is now officially useless07:28
holymoothe brilliant ubuntu devs chopped its cojones off07:28
ardchoilleholymoo: yea, it was nice in Dapper07:28
holymooit does dill now07:28
holymooi'm still fuming07:28
jootIndygunfreak: is that one of those magic install packages ?07:28
IndyGunFreak!grub | t7th_Sense read through the  "Lost Grub" part.. it will explain it better07:28
cojones_holymoo, hehe nice07:28
ubottut7th_Sense read through the  "Lost Grub" part.. it will explain it better: GRUB is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - GRUB how-tos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto07:28

IndyGunFreak!thanks | t7th_Sense07:29
ubottut7th_Sense: You're welcome! But keep in mind I'm just a bot ;-)07:29
cojones_alright rebooting07:30
cojones_hopefully this'll all work out07:30
IndyGunFreakt7th_Sense: and just to be clear, if your'e goin to reinstlal windows, and you intend to still dual boot, you need to pay special care to the fact that Windows does not overwrite your Linux partition.07:34
IndyGunFreakotherwise, not having grub will be low on your list of problems.. :)07:34
MacongaI was told that Xubuntu 8.10 will not have to be restarted when the Linux was updated. Is this true or not?07:36

ubottuCompiz (compositing window manager) and XGL (X server architecture layered on top of OpenGL) - Howto at http://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompositeManager - help in #compiz-fusion07:36
GneaMaconga: any kernel upgrade requires a reboot, period.07:36
zirodayMaconga: you need to restart after a kernel update07:36
sambagirlalso will it run in vmware?07:36
Macongaokay. thanks of the information07:36
cojones_hmm.. system still not back to normal... compiz is working ok but video playback is funny..07:37
dr_willissambagirl,  compiz in vmware - not very useable07:37
cojones_videos will play fine but if I move the window around, the video stays in the same place, it just gets cropped by the window moving07:37
cojones_anyone experience this?07:37
Gneasambagirl: it can, if you have a decent enough system to support it07:37
crdlbcojones_: but the video overlay moves once you finish moving the window?07:37
cojones_crdlb, yes07:37
crdlbcojones_: that's perfectly normal; it's Overlay XVideo07:38
dr_williscojones_,  so stop moving it! :)07:38
sambagirlwell dr_willis i would imagein it would be very sluggish but i was just willing to try it.07:38
crdlbthe video is being drawn with a hardware overlay, so it cannot be redirected for compiz07:38
cojones_crdlb, huh, i could swear that when using something like the ring switcher, the video would move around and play perfectly07:38
crdlbcojones_: if you switch to EXA, you could try "textured XVideo", but that's a bit experimental07:38
sambagirlwell i have a macbook and a thinkpad :)07:38
sambagirlboth are fast07:38
cojones_crdlb, EXA?07:39
sambagirlok after i do my apt-get update -f then i do apt-get install -f yes?07:39
cojones_crdlb, lemme look i tup07:39
sambagirlahh it install compiz-fuzioin plugins on this update i see07:39
pubbyany body help me how to configure mic phone on skype in ubuntu07:39
crdlbcojones_: an XRender AccelMethod; it's the successor to XAA, which is what you're using now07:40
cojones_crdlb, the video definitely worked before... now when i Alt-Tab thru open windows.. the video is just black in the app window unless it overlaps where it was playing on the desktop07:40
sambagirlwhat is this xpong-server that keeps blowing up ?07:40
cojones_crdlb, i'm positive it worked before07:40
crdlbcojones_: you must have done this (switching to EXA) before trying fglrx07:40
crdlbcojones_: it's very easy to do, just put Option "AccelMethod" "EXA" in Section "Device" of your xorg.conf07:41
ajopaulpubby: hv u tested it with sound recorder ?07:41
crdlbcojones_: by the way, you are on intrepid, right?07:42
crdlbEXA on radeon doesn't work well on hardy07:42
cojones_crdlb, yes07:42
cojones_alright i just added it, i'll reboot X and get back to ya ;)07:42
heret1cthe keyboard on my laptop stopped working. how do i make it work again? typing this with mouse, which is s-l-o-w.07:43
owen1how to enable the right alt key from the terminal?07:43
cojones_crdlb, unfortunately no luck :(07:44
cojones_i think it has something to do with my drivers07:44
cojones_even if i add the restricted drivers now thru System->Admin->Hardware Drivers and it says they're active... glxinfo still says vendor is SGI07:44
holymoocojones_: what problem are you trying to solve anyway?07:45
sambagirlif you do the apt-get update -f does that also do the install or do you have to also apt-get install -f too? i am trying to determine what is blowing up.07:45
sambagirlit looks like it is setting up the downloads it just completed07:45
cojones_holymoo, compiz isn't playing nicely with video playback.. i can't get my system back to its original state before I tried installing restricted drivers07:46
cojones_i got the restricted drivers working but THAT made video really choppy in fullscreen07:46
holymoocojones_: aha07:46
cojones_holymoo, but the games worked ;) horrible tradeoff hehe07:46
sambagirlis setting up actually configuring teh downloads?07:46
sambagirlis there any need to run apt-get install -f?07:47
holymoosambagirl: if something breaks and you want to force th einstall and ignore dependencies07:47
holymooit will attempt the install07:47
Conexiondoes anybody know of a hotkey that will turn your resolution sideways so I can use my laptop like a book? (similar to ctrl+alt+right in windows)07:47
holymoothe consequences are unpredictable but often not consequential07:47

CaptainMorganI'm trying to use Movie Player to watch a DVD... but it only plays the first track and never any more... repeat is set to off, and when I try to access the DVD menu, nothing opens or display07:48
crdlbcojones_: you don't want to use the restricted driver07:48
holymoocojones_: if you are trying to start from an original state i don't really have a suggestion unfortunately.  reinstalling just may be the only way to get that state back07:48
CaptainMorgananyone recommend a better DVD viewing tool?07:48
crdlbcojones_: and I wasn't done with setting up textured video07:48
holymoowe don't have automated bitmap image snapshots and the like that restore entire states of a system07:48
holymooCaptainMorgan: yeah vlc07:48
sambagirlwell i was trying to run a script to install and configure and get dependencies for 2 things. 1. campware and 2. jinzora but something is amiss.07:48
CaptainMorganholymoo, it's available on Linux ?07:49
CaptainMorganholymoo, cool! thought it was only Win07:49
holymooCaptainMorgan: np, in repos yes07:49
cojones_crdlb, what else should i add besides changing xorg?07:49
holymoosambagirl: aha.07:49
sambagirlbit encountered errors while processin spong-common spong-client spong-server spong-www07:49
holymoosambagirl: sounds like it tried to install something for which a library doesn't exist in repos07:49
UpChuck_Norrisspeaking of VLC, is there vlc > 0.8.6 in a some repo for 8.04?07:49
sambagirli see07:49
holymooand its asking you to do install -f to complete, yes?07:49
sambagirlit reurts a /usr/bin/dpkg error code (1)07:50
sambagirli know that is a lock with 0 bytes07:50
crdlbcojones_: you have to tell anything using XVideo to use the second adapter; for gstreamer, run gstreamer-properties and go to Video > Default Output > Device > Radeon Textured Video07:50
sambagirlso i go into that folder and delete that lock file and run it again i dunno. let me try the install thingy07:50
holymooif these things are just userland apps and nothing too with core frameworks like kde, gnome, x, linux, etc then complete it with -f yes07:50

bastonesHi. I'm trying to install ubuntu with wubi, I restarted and I can see the Ubuntu background and cursor but there's nothing on the page, my desktop is 256MB memory hard drive 40GB which is probably really small so would this mean it'd take time to startup for first time? because the first time it started up I saw a 'Checking Installation' screen then funny green blue colours came on the screen and it seemed like the whol07:51
bastonese program restarted to where I am now?07:51
holymoobastones: no, the system specs are fine.  either some hardware is not supported or something failed during install07:51
cojones_crdlb, you sir are a genius07:51
holymoogo back to windows reinstall again07:51
sambagirl now i know what that spong business is, i wanted to see if it was an alternative with openview.07:52

holymooDarkKnight: couple of options.  move your .mozilla or .firefox or whatever dir in ~/user dir it is and rename it to something else07:53
holymoorestart ff and see if that fixes anything07:53
holymooif that doesn't work, try reinstalling07:54
holymoobastones: new packages, new software, etc.07:54
holymoobastones: non LTS releases tend to be buggy so who knows07:54
holymooLTS releases are buggy as well but a little less so07:54
bastonesshall i try v8.04?07:55
holymooso its entirely possible that one will work and another wont say because drivers aren't installed07:55
DarkKnightholymoo... now wer do i find its directory??07:55
dulakhardy has been rock solid for me on multiple configurations07:55
holymoosure and then you can dist-upgrade and see how far you get.07:55

bazhangleohartx, from the repos or the tar.gz08:17
holymooCorwin: one ascertains a particular distro for its characteristics and lives with it08:17

Negroid"Personally, I do not hate niggers at all, I just correctly understand that they are not human and treat them accordingly. They are nothing more than wild niggers running around loose and one must act accordingly around them. A hundred and fifty years or so ago, people in this country treated niggers accordingly and kept them contained and controlled. We made them useful by managing their numbers, containing them, and forcing them to work08:18
Negroid and be somewhat productive. But the natural empathy of the White man caused him to unrestrain a species of animal (niggers) largely due to the fact they they mimick humans in their behavior and dress. Now that the genie is out of the bottle, he can't be put back in and we're stuck with living around 30 million wild niggers.08:18
NegroidI am never surprised when I hear stories of TNB; stories of niggers raping, torturing, murdering and beating White people. Stories from Africa of them raping babies, toddlers, and goats; drinking lizard pee and smoking their own shit to get high. The rampant disease and famine there and watching their nigglets die off by the millions while their mammies get gang-banged in the bush to pump out another litter. Nothing about niggers surprise08:18

Oinsniall, the reason for the backup is. i installed all patches etc. at the windows system. after 1day installing i like to backup the actual status from the system to save the time for reinstall08:53
