doug_im about to move my home to a new partition00:01
sweet_dreamsmcphail: You mean there is no way right now?00:01
tha_toadmanActionParsnip: ok...how to i gather what the drive is before i issue that command?00:02
sweet_dreamsmcphail: Acrobat reader Pro runs on wine?00:02
zsquarepluscFezzler1: yes, that would be best. so you dont need to change any other file. if names do not match we do need to edit something later00:02
mezquitaleanybody knows if you can configure samba to be a primary domain controller for linux machines?00:02
judgenI was wondering the following: If you are using the EXT2/3 driver for windows, can it corrupt your ext drive if you are using journaled ext3? and if so, how do i turn off journaling for the drive?00:02

sudobashis there any way to run a Windows Partition through VMWare? Do i just have to configure the VMDK and vmx a certain way?00:03
ActionParsniptha_toadman: look at http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?chap=4&part=100:03
lvellaAnd more, there is an free software library that I would like to see included in the repositories. How can I do that?00:03
zsquarepluscjudgen: tune2fs controls flags such as journaling. but iirc it should work well using the ext3 as ext2 and it will automatically recover if you use it as ext3 again00:03
Fezzler1zsquareplusc>> Moment of truth!?  Apply?00:03
zsquarepluscFezzler1: yes. you still have the original drive as a backup if anything goes wrong. right?00:03
Fezzler1zsquareplusc>> Yup.  :)00:04

doug_how much space is needed for an ubuntu install00:07
ActionParsnipdarkeyzs: well, what behaviour are you experiencing?00:07
LjLdoug_: about 3 gig00:07
ActionParsnipdoug_: minimal is about 2gb to be comfortable00:07
Into_the_Pitdoug: for root 10 gb should be enough00:07
jbeitlerdoug_: it depends on which install you are doing00:07
zsquareplusctim167: you could pipe (|) it to cut and extract what you need. or ds -h filename might work00:08
Fezzler1zsquareplusc>> Message is "check filesystem on /dev/hda1 for errors and (if possible) fix them"00:08
doug_well basically im going to shrink my / partition...to leave room for a separate /home partition00:08
Fezzler1zsquareplusc>> We did that and fsck reported clean00:08
doug_i have a 160 gb...so maybe i leave 15 gm00:08
ActionParsnipdoug_: then run df -h and you will see what has been used so far00:08

ActionParsnipdarkeyzs: https://issues.foresightlinux.org/browse/FL-177400:17
tha_toadmanActionParsnip: or would a command as simple as -- "dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb" be sufficient?00:17
ActionParsniptha_toadman: yeah thats fine00:17
zsquareplusctha_toadman: bs is not so relevant but bigger sizes ( some kb to mb) ususaly make it faster copying00:17

kkerwinHi. Looking for a program that will synchronize the contents (file by file) of my usb drive and my home directory. If file.usb is newer than file.home, file.usb is the file copied to both drives. And vice versa. More complex than simply copying a drive. Any ideas?00:22
zsquarepluscFezzler1: all in one should as well work. i think the problem is that it was mounted at program start. gparted only checks the drives at startup or when refresh from the menu is selected00:22

rdzzsquareplusc, and i am pretty sure, that os x runs lower values, when idling, otherwise battery usage couldn't be that slow... but i am not sure, since i couldn't find a cpu freq monitor for osx. however, i suspect, that ubuntu is doing something wrong here. is that possible?00:35

histoFezzler, whats your username on the computer?01:22
pckchemComrade-Sergei: I haven't used it much myself, honestly. I'd imaging "man mutt" would give you some more information about configuration. Is there a reason you cannot use an X based application?01:22

oracleofmistso do i just change cdrom to /dev/sdb1 or where it is mounted /media/sd  ?01:25
linxehComrade-Sergei: you cant make mutt use a specific mail server afaik, it relies on you running an MTA yourself and configuring that appropriately (ie as a smarthost). If you install exim from apt, and choose smarthost in the install wizard it should ask you for which smtp server to use01:26

innovate2000all, I have disabled Avahi so the .local tld (as well as mDNS) should not be impacting anything02:13
unop[TiZ], rsync only updates files in the destination if the source has changed02:14
Comrade-Sergeilinxeh, exim errored out on uninstall and wont allow sendmail to install now02:14
unop[TiZ], meaning, the next time you run rsync - it will only copy over files that were changed (note, files includes directories too)02:14
[TiZ]unop: So next time, rsync will know? Excellent.02:15

CyberCodwhat is the terminal command to bring up the network manager?02:15

ScuniziLoRdRapTuReZ: you mean a GUI?02:34
zurnis there a way to undo those updates?02:35
zsquarepluscFrijolie: you probably just have the wrong screen resolution. seems to happen with some driver/gfx card ocmbinations that the autodetetction fails02:35
lavacano201014Irimi_Nage-\ Ping02:35

lavacano201014Say your username on your computer was "sergei", and you have default home folder stuff (you probably do). It's /home/sergei/.mailrc02:37
viatorpr should it be static then ip02:37
Irimi_Nageunop: because that's how vmware works by default - I'm trying a reinstall to see if I can change the default behaviour02:37

zurnFrijolie: if you have a driver problem with virtualbox - then google generic video driver (id look it up for you but im having a problem w/ my browser)02:37
lavacano201014The . at the beginning makes it hidden, so you have to check a box in Nautilus to see it02:38

lavacano201014Rooty-\ Well, if the new HD is /dev/sdb, then you want the fstab to have a line that says "/dev/sdb1      /media/sdb1    ext3     defaults     0     2"02:59
histoFezzler1, be carefull deleting stuff like that make sure you are deleting the right folder02:59
Prettodabud, /etc/network/interfaces02:59
Panarchyzsquareplusc: I need it saved on the DVD. So when people put it into there comps, and boot up, they will get the same settings I have02:59
linxehComrade-Sergei: ok, try now reinstalling exim, and then removing. you might also be able to use the dpkg utils to fix it02:59
grizlo42zurn: thats what caused the problem, it was fine b4 hand02:59
lavacano201014Rooty-\ But in the /etc/fstab you can replace the /media/sdb1 with wherever you want it to automount02:59
linxehComrade-Sergei: try a google for the error message, I cant remember the exact command sorry :/02:59
Comrade-Sergeilinxeh, option 1 is no good ,....trid it02:59

scunizime_, the easiest way is "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop" but more than likely you haven't really removed the gui.. it's just not starting on it's own since it works with startx.. I'll ask a more refined question to the channel for you .. sorry I don't have the answer myself.03:42

lavacano201014Point is, even if archives (zips and jars in this case) contain only text files, they are binary files04:06

lavacano201014kc8pxy-\ Well, that's how FTP handles plaintext vs. binary, so my vote is to use that...04:08
me_I thought Ibex was betta while Hardy was stable04:08
kc8pxylavacano201014:  either way, how do we fix the jar?04:08
lavacano201014Because most other programs do it that way too (less even warns me about reading binary files with it)04:08
me_tempy I thought Ibex was betta while Hardy was stable04:09

scunizihmw_, not really sure but in 8.10 and 8.04 the method of identifying HD's changed.. everything became referenced as sdX and used uuid's for identification.04:12

ahtmly2ksorry i was away... but there are people able to install leopard on pc's especially intel-based, not to mention genuine tiger also came out for intel pc's wouldnt totally possible to run osx on vm in ubuntu? i got virtual box ose and virtual machine manager; which one's better? i find virtual box easier to use since the interface is really friendly, but still haven't tried to actually use it to install anything. however i'm totally blind on virtual mac04:18
DasE1hmw_: bte what is the first drive in your bios , the sata I guess ?04:18
ahtmly2khine manager... any suggestions. i wanna run adobe cs4 without having to use it on windows...04:18
hmw_DasE1 this question is about finding out, what happened, i repaired my sys already. i would like to find out, why the 7.10 installer made the mixup04:18

trainpicmatias: what snd card is it?04:18
matiasdj87mi notebook is Compaq Presario F756la04:18
crashsystemsanyone know what scim-launcher does?04:18
hmw_DasE1 yes, i think so (not 100% sure) but i saw two boot partitions (one on each drive) so i assume it must be the sata04:18
matiasdj87mi problem is a microphone internal04:18
matiasdj87Ubuntu 8.1004:19
pckchemahtmly2k that is probably best for #ubuntu-offtopic04:19
DasE1hmw_:in the end of menu.lst you find a mapping, which is prbly done because you are not booting from the first(bios) disk in your pc04:19
trainpicwhat is wrong with the mic?04:19

wosflannel is that so?04:31
hmw_wos: maybe some program you dont identify as package manager is really running . i think it comes in three fahions: the "add software", "synaptic" and "update manager". ther might be some apt-get or aptitude running in a shell, too.04:32
LF|Irssiis ^ like a wild card or something? and does that work in other commands besides apt?04:32
Flannelwos: If you are absolutely sure you don't have anything running (and have checked ps aux), you can delete the lock file manually.04:32
scuniziFezzler1, ubuntu-restricted-extras is actually for mp3 and other codecs.. linux-restricted-modules has the atheros driver.04:32

scuniziFezzler1, security..  wpa but it's not always the easiest to get working.. wicd seems to work better then network-manager from what I understand but if you use it you have to uninstall network-manager04:54

ikoniahischild: stick it in a pastebin and pm me the link, I'm on a train so can't work with it now, however I 'll look when I get in the office07:56
tat2thinbearVx should be suported07:56
XtynBatsmasher: in the terminal07:56
ikoniatat2thinbear: check it is supported - not should be07:56
hischildBatsmasher, go to applications, assecoires and open up terminal. Copy paste the line it gives you --> dpkg --configure -a <--- in there and hit enter.07:57
hischildBatsmasher, oh and precede it with sudo :-)07:57
hischildikonia, will do.07:57
canthonyi probly need to ask this in a more specific channel, but...  im trying to setup a chroot environment for all my services on a hosting server.  i want each user to have a vrtual directory with httpd/sshd/etc in there chroot enviroment.  i want apache/sshd/etc to run as the USER and not root (sshd mostly).  can i make the user daemons monitor a local unix socket in the chroot environment, and the real server monitor the TCP socke07:57
canthonyts?  an intelligent program would pass the connection to the apropriate users local socket for processing by the chrooted daemon?  is this possible?07:57
ikoniacanthony: thats a massive bit of work07:58
dnyyAnyone know why Ubuntu 8.10 would be lagging so hard and freezing so often?  :/07:58
rpopfaryshta, AidenXi07:58
ikoniacanthony: user daemons interacting with virtual sockets linked to physical devices with different permissions, is not a quick task07:58
Batsmasherdone, thanks hischild07:58
ikoniadnyy: probably due to graphics drivers, that is common07:58
canthonyikonia, does the concept seem sound at least?07:58
ikoniacanthony: no07:58
rpopfaryshta, AidenXi - i've solved my installer problem from yesterday07:58

rdzRatchet--, start from cd anyway and erase the partition09:00
Ratchet--rdz:  thanks, i'll try that09:00
DJonesArnas: You could check out wine and see if the application can run under its compatibility layer - www.winehq.org that may let you run it under ubuntu09:01
rdzRatchet--, you could do, what is often used as a joke: 'sudo rm -rf /'09:01

FlannelRatchet--: Get a partitioner, and repartition your Ubuntu partition to be NTFS (or expand your windows partition, etc).  You'll also need a windows CD, to restore the windows bootloader to your MBR09:03

FlannelRatchet--: What that does is boots to your second harddrive (D usually), so if you just boot to that via GRUB, you should be ok.09:05
Ratchet--On the normal circumstances you do it when the compaw screen shows, but there is not enough time with the option choosing09:05
bdizzleah, okay09:05
Ratchet--Flannel: i don't quite understand how i would get to it through grub09:06
FlannelRatchet--: You'd change from booting to your primary Windows partition to your recovery windows partition.  Unfortunately, most of that recovery stuff is MFC specific, and non-standard.  So you might want to consult google for details (see if anyone else has already done it, wrote about it, etc)09:07
ubottuUbuntu, like any other linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'iptables' command (see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo), or GUI applications such as Firestarter (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE).09:08
DJonesRatchet--: From memory, I think there's an option on the Windows XP install cd that lets you recover your MBR, that would stop grub being loaded, you could then use windows to reformat/repartition the ubuntu partitions, but it would completely remove Ubuntu09:08
akhil_I am using Ubuntu 8.10 on a Dell Inspiron 6400. I can't shutdown my laptop other than manually pressing the power button. The turnoff button just brings a black screen where it gets stuck09:08

canthonyArnas, not sure of VM environments i guess.  at my office my whole team develops on linux machines, we use a windows xp machine with a hacked terminal services to allow all of use to login simultaneously via domain users for testing.  works very well09:18
calav3ra_i even thought about using a commandline cd, maybe i coudl use aa server - because gnome does really suck up the resources on this notebook, it has a mere of 256mb ram - god :)09:18

canthonyArnas, i combined about 4 tutorials i found to allow unlimited (albeit it BSODs at about 20 users (-: ) terminal services (remote desktop) users, AND found a way to let simultaneous domain users on alongside the real local user.  i wrote a quicky tutorial, i will paste it here...09:22

hischildcanthony, it can be really useful at times.10:07
neetogeenome: I like it, I didn't do anything with it on this install because this machine is a modular experiment of sorts, so it's been being added onto for a year or so10:07
Juanolocanthony, I have done strace and this is the result: http://pastebin.com/m3afea99010:07
geenomeright thats how my Linux machine is10:08
neetogeenome: a huge experiment?10:08
geenomeI usually use Ubuntu Studio but atm I am using Fedora 10 and I love it10:08
geenomethe kernel 2.6.29 is amazing10:08
Juanolocanthony, so I don't understand anything about the information generated by strace10:09
canthonyJuanolo, i see alot of No such file or directory, seems like you have missing libraries10:09
neetogeenome: as soon as I get the time I'll upgrade for sure10:09
knut_which file format do i have to choose when i want to embedd fonts and images into "one file"?? (INKSCAPE)10:09
geenomeit almost puts XP to shame in terms of speed and smoothness is unparraled10:09
neetogeenome: My machine already puts XP to shame several times over. I love this beast10:09
geenomea little late for kernel video processing but better late than never to have a gdi10:09
zohrehis there any one programmer with xlib ?10:10
Juanolocanthony, access("/etc/ld.so.nohwcap", F_OK)      = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory) , which library ?10:10
geenomeits about time GDI kernel mode was introduced10:10
neetogeenome: oh shit they have a gdi mode now10:10
paul68geenome: do you know if creative labs is supported by fedora 10?10:10
neetoerr pardon the french there10:10
Juanolocanthony, it is always asking for : ld.so.nohwcap10:10
Juanolocanthony, what's that?10:10
maxbJuanolo: that one's harmless10:10
arquebusanyone know where I can find info on how to configure command line mail clients like alpine to work with gmail?10:11
geenomeUbuntu 9.04 will have that kernel10:11
geenomeor better10:11
canthonyJuanolo, i admit im not that savvy with the debug tools or their output10:11
Juanolomaxb, what do yo mean?10:11
maxbJuanolo: It's not a problem that it's missing10:11
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about alpine10:12
neetogeenome: cool. For now I think I am gonna make ALSA use my intel audio card, that'll probably fix the problem, at least for the immediate future10:12
canthonyJuanolo, strace/gdb are usually last resorts after sifting through documentation on the program and forums/web resources.  i would think the program would have some sort of logging functionality10:12
Juanolomaxb, ok so what's wrong on strace information? I can't still manage to stick this process on10:12
geenomethats what I did neeto10:12
maxbJuanolo: I don't think there's any useful information in that strace10:13
Juanolocanthony, nothing, the information and documentations is very simple, and it si supossed to be as simple as start the process: http://wiki.pbxnsip.com/index.php/Installing_in_Linux10:13
zohrehany person programmer xlib?10:13
paul68geenome: do you know if creative labs is supported by fedora 10? and especially for the xfi cards?10:13
geenomewith GDI kernel processing Xorg is now 10 times more stable10:13
neetogeenome: cool, should work, although I am more confused about why my creative card decided to get crappy all the sudden more than the fact that it's hard to listen to music with10:13
geenomeidk I put my xfi card in my gaming system10:13
JuanoloThe funy thing is that this was working on Ubuntu 8.0410:13
geenomeits alsa probably an upgrade10:13
neetogeenome: I hate when they upgrade working things into non-working things :/10:14
geenomehave you done upgrades recently10:14
neetogeenome: I do them every chance I get10:14
geenomewait a few days it might get fixed10:14
maxbJuanolo: I think that strace just shows the initial process forking off the one which will continue to run in the background, and then exiting. So, working as designed10:14
neetogeenome: I'll cross my fingers... I'm peacin' out for now though10:14
neetolater all10:15
Juanolomaxb, is there any other log where can I see error messages comming from services that want to restart?10:15
geenomethe new kernel makes me smile it added like 10-15 fps for my games10:17
ikoniaI doubt that10:17
maxbJuanolo: it really is up to each individual service, you'd have to see what logging options pbxnsip has10:17
canthonyJuanolo, is there a specific reason you need to move to 8.10?10:17
geenomeikonia is that toward me?10:17
ikoniayes, and it's also offtopic10:17
geenomeI have been helping people all night sorry I am a bit tired I got a little carried away10:18

akhil_I am using Ubuntu 8.10 on a Dell Inspiron 6400. I can't shutdown my laptop other than manually pressing the power button. poweroff command doesn't seem to shut down, it just brings it onto a black screen with the power still switched on. I did not have this problem with Ubuntu 8.04.. What should i do?10:20
