lstarnesLunestra: cedega, a fork of wine, does00:00
jaymtee_Lunestra: wine is free (like beer) but crossover costs money.  It's based on wine but very well packaged, improved, etc00:00

kestutiswhy some commands are full path to the file whereas some of them are only the name00:01
ytnylLtl: thanks for the tip00:01
jaymtee_Wine will run many programs though... Graphics can be a problem though.  You should check out ine resources on the net for specific progerams00:01
kestutisfor example. the command for opening Skype is only "skype"00:01
zone5wes i think i have something set wrong or something00:01
geniikestutis: The files which are in the known PATHs of the system execute without full path having to be known00:01

Robbie_CrashI'm trying to move a hard drive from my Ubuntu box to a different computer, but every time I remove it, I can only boot into BusyBox. I know that the hdd that I'm moving off isn't the hdd that Ubuntu is installed on, and it's not even mounted. If I attach a CDROM to the same IDE channel that the HDD was on, the system boots fine. So I'm pretty sure it's a problem with GRUB and where it's pointing to boot from. 00:02
weszone5, ya i see your messages00:02
kestutisgenii: so how the system knows the paths?00:02
geniikestutis: printenv|grep PATH                         will tell you the ones it knows automatically about00:03
kestutisis it any default path as c:/windows/system32/ in windows?00:03
geniikestutis: It's a variable which can be set in your environment file00:03
LunestraWell I'll be back to ask lots bore quetions in 4-6 weeks when my Ubuntu Disk gets here. Sooner if I feel motivated to attmept downloading it (not likely, my internets suck) Seeya00:03

kestutisso, what's that path in linux?00:04
Skippy1981kestutis, from a terminal type "echo $PATH", you will see the directories seperated by commas, just like in windows00:04
onetinsoldierthe env command is a little more interesting00:05
LtLkestutis: type 'env' no quotes in a terminal, those are you environment variables.00:05
antoniahe guys, my cd wont mount, at all00:05

cyphaseaw, no more santa hat icon for VLC00:06
geniiantonia: Are you specifying iso9660 filesystem for instance when trying to manually mount it?00:06
kestutisi see i wasn't good at Windows, too!00:06
CyberGabberytnyl: Does volume work well now?00:06

geniiantonia: You can't really mount an audio cd00:07
kestutisso $PATH shows where systems looks firstly, if i haven't typed the full path?00:07
geniikestutis: Yes00:07
Skippy1981kestutis, exactly00:07

TwoEqualsTengenii, what is that? I'll also check it out. It's never done that before with prior version (7.04 up to 8.10), but it's done it on every 8.10 install. No biggie I guess Just wondering.00:13

ehmckFlannel: genii: so I created a preferences file, and I think I got it set up ok-- and I'm focusing on one of the first packages to revert-- but it's still telling me it's going to have to remove a TON of packages:  Package: dpkg/n Pin: version 1.14.16*/n Pin-Priority: 100100:55
mathijshi all, how can I export dpkg/apt configuration (including auto/manual) of 1 system and import that to another?00:55
abuyusufnickpatt0n, sorry i got what you mean now00:55
Skippy1981Aggrav8d, i would be interested to see a solution for this as well - only way i can see it being done is with scripts on shutdown and startub to save and set the $PWD variable00:55
eseven73Scunizi: on my 8.04 box i didnt even need anything to get guest additions working, i have build-essentail already00:56
eseven73ill try dkms thanks Scunizi00:56

ubottumathijs, please see my private message00:56
Scunizieseven73: dkms keeps the kernel updated for vbox with kernel upgrades..00:56
ehmckFlannel: genii: it ignores when i do apt-get upgrade-- but when i do apt-get install dpkg, then it picks up the preferences and tries teh downgrade-- but in doing tells me it's going to remove the entire world00:56
cmdbbqOK, so i can't get to wikipedia, rockbox, or the GNOME site for rythmbox; is anyone else having these/other internet connectivity issues?

abuyusufnickpatt0n, try freeing up your desktop from extra graphics work, also try removing some items from your panels, ( top and bottom panels )01:00
geniiehmck: Reinstall is probably less time consuming for this in the end of it all.01:00
Scunizicmdbbq: yep.. but there are sites I use for work that don't come up.. try www.reotrans.com for me.01:00
wj32hikenboot: do you mean libvala-dev?01:00

Scunizicmdbbq: arrg..01:01
Flannelehmck: right.  You'd likely have to go through and pin all of those packages.  It won't downgrade when one of their depends goes below the version, it'll just remove01:01
wj32hikenboot: no vaapi-dev either. what are you trying to do?01:01
Flannelehmck: (Xv3 depends on Yv3, downgrading to Yv2 will just remove X, not downgrade to Xv2)01:01

Pelomeho_,  can I suggest you put your /home folder on a sepeerate partiton and then just clean install 8.10 ?02:05
jmarsdentehboriz: If you suspect RAM issues, boot from a Ubuntu LiveCD and run memtest02:05
IdleBytehave there been any updates from the auto-update app in the last few days?  I haven't gotten any notice or request for updating in at least a week.  before it was a daily thing02:05
meho_well the problem is i have no blanks02:05
tehborizjmarsden, oh i'm in ubuntu livecd02:06

ubottunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like Freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit02:06
tehborizon a 32x cd rom02:06
FlannelPelo: I'd suggest 8.04 honestly, he obviously isn't eager to upgrade every 6 months02:06
tehborizwoa what the helljust happened02:06
CSonicGooh cthat's bad02:06
IdleBytea netsplit02:06
meho_and its taking me all day to download 1 copy02:06
FlannelOh, floodbot does it.02:06
jmarsdentehboriz: At boot time (before you try booting into Ubuntu the OS) ther is an option to check memory... use it... :)02:06
meho_so i would have my self believe update would be somewhat faster02:06
tehborizgood idea jmarsden02:06
wj32_In computer networking, specifically Internet Relay Chat (IRC), netsplit is a term used to describe the disconnection of a given node from the previously established network or between two nodes.02:07
IdleByteso when was the last time an update to packages for 8.10 were relased?02:07
tehborizusually when a computer locks up without warning and it's not temp related, what is it02:07
fosco_IdleByte: maybe two days02:07

meho_wj32_: can i get help from you please trough remote desktop02:07
ganymedewhy doesn't the floodbot just say the netsplit message instead of asking ubotu to do it?02:08

ubottuenvyng 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 risk02:10

TeamColtra[NADC]Now I have another question for you guys that maybe you will give some other tips that might help me... I am getting rid of windows entirely.... and I would love to be able to just erase the partition and expand this one over it... would that be possible without having to start all over in ubuntu03:18
wj32kestutis: yes it must be gpc03:18

bartekHi .. is there a quick way to figure out what version of Flash I have installeD?03:18
wj32TeamColtra[NADC]: you can install gparted03:18
TeamColtra[NADC]I am already backing up my /home so then I can have most settings... but I don't want to have to redownload all my apps03:18
wj32TeamColtra[NADC]: sudo apt-get install gparted03:18
geniiReXiO: I had a board in that spot before, made a dos floppy with bat file to autorun the bios update utility, and saved the thing from the trashheap03:18

ReXiOgenii: ok thx!, do you remember where to get a re-flasher BIOS utility?03:20
DasEI1TeamColtra[NADC]: if the former win-parti is next to a linux-parti you want to resize, yes, mind uuid's in fstab03:20
onetinsoldierThxpnp^Laptop: read the man page for the 'mount' command. it's kind of similar to the 'noatime' option03:20

wj32TeamColtra[NADC]: http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php03:21
kolbyTeamColtra[NADC]: The best idea I've heard so far is to make a seperate partition (possibly encripted for security) for your home.  This allows you to mix and match linux distros without need of resetting user preferences every time.03:21

dr_willisFloridaGuy,  ive had ubuntu not boot/load problerly on one box.. but xubuntu did.  From what i gather it can be due to the very high compression used on the cd images..   Ive not had any issues with any of them since ive started using the unetbootin tool to make bootable/installable media on my THumbdrives.. and the Thumbdruives install about 4x as fast as cd also.03:37

ikyn_Please, someone ... I'm getting desperate here03:50
Skippy1981kristian_, DMZ simultaniously forwards all ports to your selected PC, it is therefore very insucure - however assuming your machine is not for production use and is not running any other services you should be safe to test it03:51

izinucskristian_, missed a lot but are you trying to ssh into your box remotely from outside your lan?03:54

Skippy1981no worries, sorry i can't me of more help - might be worth trying to ssh over port 80 though, just in case your ISP is the problem03:55

ubottuChicano: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics. Thanks!03:56
kristian_wj32 : i have given the ip:port to two people and both have tried but not been able to connect, i even went to my friends house and tried myself, no luck.03:56
kristian_Skippy1981 : nextgentel (norway)03:56
wj32kristian_: ok03:56
izinucskristian_, Skippy1981 might have the answer.. many ISP's block specific ports .. typically 80 and occationally 20/21.. their end user agreements are that you won't put a server on their system with a home user account.  so if you've used one of those ports chane it.03:56
Chicanohow do i add another irc to xchat?03:56
wj32Chicano: Network > Channels...03:56
Chicanoand then just put the irc?03:57
kristian_izinucs : yeah, i tried other ports, but still nothing, could the isp somehow block "ssh" in general? seems odd. and i dont think nextgentel does that, but then again im not to sure.03:57
wj32Chicano: well the channel name03:57
wj32Chicano: if theres a channel for discussing windows i'm sure it'll be there03:58
Skippy1981kristian_, it is possible for an ISP to block all ports except for web traffic ones - ie 80 and 44303:58
hikenboothello all--I admit I got lazy and installed a package from source using make install ...now I have to reverse what it did...anyone know how03:58
Skippy1981kristian_, so you could try connecting over those, and port forward port 80 to port 22 for example03:59
wj32hikenboot: no, you can't do that easily03:59
izinucskristian_, it'd be hard for them to tell that it's a ssh connection.  so you might just try port 5701 which I think is used by the vnc protocol.. I've used that on cox communications got a connection.  never tried with ssh.03:59
hikenbootis there a way to know what files it changed so i can aptitude remove --purge them?03:59
kristian_Skippy1981 : ok, i really don't think nextgentel is blocking anything, but im willing to try. :-)03:59
wj32is HTTPS port 81 or 44304:00
kristian_izinucs : will look into it.04:00
wj32hikenboot: not easily04:00
hikenboot443 i think04:00
wj32hikenboot: well no04:00
kristian_thanks all! :-) (im sure ill be back in a minute or two. :-P)04:00
Skippy1981kristian_, another thing you could try is to take the router out of the equation and connect your box directly to WAN, this would prove the problme is the router.  However you can only do this if your modem etc is seperate to the router of course04:00
xd4i messed up with my sessions autostart apps04:00

zetheroodo external hard drives park their heads? ....04:06
ubottuYou should avoid noisy away messages in a busy channel like #ubuntu, or other Ubuntu channels; it causes excessive scrolling which is unfair to new users. Use the command "/away <reason>" to set your client away silently.  See also «/msg ubottu Guidelines»04:06

mljohns4Is there a good guide detailing the MySQL configuration of a fresh LAMP install. I am using phpmyadmin and noticed that there were at least two MySQL users created by default, and was wondering if this was standard for Ubuntu. I'm coming from Gentoo04:09
Finnisheseven73: Well I think Kino is sort of Ubuntu related04:09
Skippy1981zetheroo, as far as i know all modern hard disks will attempt to automaticallly park when they are not reading data.  The reason sudden powercuts can cause data loss is because the drive does not have chance to park and the head hits the platter04:09
Son_of_DemetriusBasic stuff questions coming up...really basic...please be patient04:10
throwthow do i (use dbus to) configure bluetooth on ubuntu?04:11
Son_of_DemetriusLike...where can I get some codecs for Ubuntu 8.10...and do I need to be online to download from some archive?04:11
wj32ok i'm having a problem with sound. audacious is suddenly refusing to play anything, while it worked just a few seconds ago.04:11
throwtI'm trying to change the default class, but changing main.conf doesnt work04:11

Chicano_is there a way to manage itouch?04:12
wj32Chicano_: 2g, no04:12
Son_of_Demetriussorry guys...I need to backtrack in a major way04:12
wj32Chicano_: 1g, if it's jailbroken04:12
izinucshow bout the 8 gig04:12
eseven73Son_of_Demetrius: yes you'll need internet to download them,04:13
Chicano_i had it jailbroken but i put it back to normal04:13
wj32Chicano_: i would say its not worth the effort04:13
mljohns4Well.. It was somewhat concerning I guess. I connected to my MySQL server using phpmyadmin and noticed that right off the bat there was a "ANY" user and a "debian-sys-maint" user.04:13
wj32Chicano_: but: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PortableDevices/iPhone04:13
Chicano_so just update with vista since i have a dual boot04:13
mljohns4as well as a "root" aka admin user.... which I would expect04:14
Son_of_DemetriusI'm looking for codecs...but don't have an internet connection at present with my other computer, which I've loaded Ubuntu...am I confused or waht? lol04:14

Son_of_DemetriusMy dang Ubuntu Guide book still hasn't arrived in the mail...and I'm impatient :(04:15

cut-copyzetheroo, yes04:15
Chicanoi hav a problem controling my aduio with the top keys on my laptop04:15
wj32Son_of_Demetrius: you simply download the packages from your other computer and put them in /var/cache/apt/archives04:16
throwthow do i configure the class for my bluetooth device...  setting class in main.conf doesnt change anything in bluetoothd -d -n's debugging output regarding class...04:16
ikyn_so I followed the directions in !ics exactly, using two ubuntu machines. I still can't get it to work. When I ping my internet machine, it doesn't come back with anything04:16
wj32Son_of_Demetrius: then when apt tries to install something, it will think it's already downloaded04:16
Son_of_DemetriusI'm listening...I'm reading...I'm so confused :(04:16
Skippy1981mljohns4, doesn't phpmyadmin connect to mysql? If it does it would make sense for the LAMP install to create a user for it to connect with - connecting as root is bad practice04:16
throwtit used to be configured in hcid.conf but that file doesnt exist anymore04:16
wj32Son_of_Demetrius: ok never mind. i think you should ask someone else04:16

BLuEACiDCsgeek what are you trying to do04:18
Son_of_DemetriusI don't remeber...sorry :(04:18

eseven73the hack, i guess yeah wj3204:18
Son_of_DemetriusHow do I activate what I downloaded once I find it?04:19
eseven73wj32: im pretty new at all this yet04:19
BLuEACiDCs are you having troubles with your wireless internet? I spent 2 days fixing mine up it works now, I could possibly help you04:19

Son_of_Demetriuslike 300mgs of stuff...I don't know..I just let the download complete...it asked me to reboot...and???...I haven't the foggiest :(04:20
mljohns4Skippy1981, that is a good point about regarding phpmyadmin, and one that I neglected to think of. I will need to look into it. A cursory look leads me to believe that phpmyadmin connects to the database server under the guise of the user your logging in with, and not a default "admin", meaning that it isn't automatically creating a user of its own04:20
wj32the problem with downloading the packages from another computer and trying to install them on your ubuntu machine is that gdebi doesn't know how to satisfy dependencies04:20
eseven73is there a way to download all the packages like on DVD's or something? Like just incase the internet went down or what not04:20
werdnumeseven73: sure04:21
LeeJunFanmy users-admin add user button is greyed out - any ideas?04:21
wj32eseven73: apt-cd04:21
erossbtw i was playing savage 2 last night, the graphics and gameplay just rock in ubuntu04:21
dr_willisSon_of_Demetrius,   You sould of just apt-get installed'd them or install the packages with the package manager when it was connected to the intenet.  that would bheen the best way.. if you got .deb files downloaded some where - in theory you just double click on them and they shoul dinstall.04:21
werdnum!mirror | eseven7304:21

wj32eseven73: as in sudo apt-get install aptoncd04:21
rwwLeeJunFan: This is a random stab in the dark based on something I happened to read recently... are you connecting to your computer remotely, using VNC or something similar?04:21
eseven73wj32: ok so how would I go about downloading them, and faking out apt so it thinks its online?04:21
Son_of_DemetriusI didn't download them on another comp...I downloaded them on mine...I just don't know what I'm looking at...04:22
eseven73oh i have aptoncd but isnt that just a list?04:22
minus18_punditmy download speed through update manager is very slow. download rate is only 8-10 kbps, while i normally have 40 kbps download speed in my download manager. how can i increase the download speed in update manager?04:22
Skippy1981mljohns4, not sure about the ANY account, but take a look at this http://www.kavod.net/wordpress/ The debian-sys-maint account looks to be kosher, and is part of all debian installs (ubuntu derives from debian)04:22
wj32eseven73: aptoncd allows you to burn the packages onto a cd04:22
wfosterAnyone know how I can make my account an Admin?04:22
werdnumAnybody know how I can change my keyboard layout? I seem to have some strange layout where typing 'a gives á, '<space> gives ', and '' gives ´, with similar behaviour for ".04:22
wfosteron Ubuntu04:22
wj32eseven73: that's not a hack. apt supports installing packages from a cd04:22
werdnumwfoster: sudo nano /etc/sudoers04:22
Son_of_DemetriusI downloaded Wine...aptoncd...and multimedia stuff...but didn't know about codecs issues04:22
eseven73wj32: hmmm ok i was under the impression AptOnCD only created a large list of all the stuff you have installed, and not be the actualy packagtes04:23
wj32Son_of_Demetrius: does your ubuntu computer have an internet connection?04:23
harriseldonwerdnum system-preferences-keyboard layout04:23
wj32eseven73: why would it be called apt *oncd* then?04:23
Skippy1981mljohns4, i would assume that its purpose is to prevent you from having to connect as root.  Connecting as root would be tricky anyway, since the password is unknown to you in the default configuration - normally you access root via sudo04:23
werdnumharriseldon: KDE :)04:23
wj32eseven73: of course i haven't actually tried it04:23

wfosterIt won't let me use some features of the application. Like downloading on firefox.04:26
mljohns4Skippy1981, Ya, the whole root account philosophy was something I repaired right off the bat. Thanks for the link, if anything it has sparked my interest with regards to what sort of maintenance is being performed by the debian-xx-xxx users04:26
Son_of_DemetriusI need to learn some distinctions here...why my Display Driver Disk can't be mounted04:26

wj32wfoster: can you not save it?04:26
wfosterwj32: Scrap what I just said.04:26
wj32wfoster: ?04:26
mljohns4I also deleted the ANY users from MySQL. Wasn't comfortable with non password style accounts04:27
wj32wfoster: there is only one admin account and that is root04:27
rwwwfoster: Do "sudo chown -R yourusername:yourusername .mozilla .purple", then try loading them normally and see if it fixes it.04:27
wfosterwj32: Every time I want full use of Pidgin or Firefox I have to sudo firefox or sudo pidgin. If I want it non-fully I can just open it but won't let me use some of the features.04:27
wj32wfoster: what happens when you try to use those features?04:27
wfosterwj32: It just closes on me.04:27
wj32wfoster: mmm. try what rww said.04:28

wfosterwj32: I'm typing all that and after enetering on the gbd command it goes to a copyright confirmation.04:44
izinucsminus18_pundit, if it's cable then a round tv type wire will screw into the back of the cable modem and it will connect to either your router or computer directly with ethernet.. from there it just works.. not adjustments needed..... dsl typically has a dialer because it plugs into a telephone connection.  the dialer can be software loaded on the computer (re: windows) or a router downstream typically wi04:44

takophiliacif i select the oss on, it works fine04:57

eseven73xd4: also note most HOWTO's on how to set up gmail in thunderbird do not use the correct ports, for imap its 993 for recieving and 587 for sending, also recieving uses TLS and sending SSL i belive or it might be the other way around :)  i can check if you'd like05:00

jrgpwj32, come to think of it, I've been using fdisk a lot lately and it always calls partitions I make "linux partitions" and says it knows how to identify dos,irix,bsd,mac,etc partitions too05:34
untermenschI have a MacBook Pro that I am installing Ubuntu 8.10 on. The install seemed to be sucessful, and gparted shows both partitions to have some amount of used space. However, when I boot the computer, it always goes to OS X, and does not give an option to boot Ubuntu. How can I correct this?05:34
Mayankyes it is..05:34
geniiikyn_: You can directly edit the xorg.conf file thus:     nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf                      look for the line which reads like: "Configured Video Device"   under it may be a line like:  Driver "intel"                                or similar. Put whre says "intel"   instead:  "i810"05:34
wj32Mayank: how about "software restricted by copyright"?05:34

goppNone of the domain controllers listed in DNS could be contacted, or there are no DCs listed in DNS.05:47

onetinsoldierhello. anyone know if i can run 32-bit game(ut) in wine under my 64-bit userspace unbuntu installation?05:47
nickrudMayank, I've never used wubi myself. I know some wubi devs keep an eye on that forum05:48
ikyn_genii - wj32: when I type /etc/init.d/kdm start, it says that it's already running05:48
jrgponetinsoldier, I play half life2 all the time on my 64bit ubuntu box05:48
wj32ikyn_: try pressing Ctrl+Alt+F705:48
geniiikyn_: Do then alt-f705:48
Mayankwebcamwonder, i have installed wubi on this machine i am using, i have another machine at home, when i tried to install on that one, its download the whole iso file...why?05:48
wj32genii: oh is it Alt+F7 or is it Ctrl+Alt+F7?05:48
geniiwj32: Either works from console05:49
wj32genii: oh ok05:49
jrgpyeah. the control is only needed if you're in X05:49
WebcamWonderMayank: Well, wubi needs the ISO file to install. If it doesn't find the ISO file exactly named under the same folder as the exectuable, it has to download it05:49
geniiwj32: Only ctrl-alt-f#  works from gui05:49
ikyn_wj32 - genii: I hit Alt+F7 and my screen went blank and there is a blinking cursor in the upper left hand corner05:49
wj32ikyn_: sudo /etc/init.d/kdm restart05:49
rwwMayank: what WebcamWonder said. Also, it might be downloading the 64-bit version, whereas you have the 32-bit version... or something like that.05:49
ikyn_wj32: I can't type anything05:49
onetinsoldierjrgp: ahh, cool! thanks. i was just curious before i install wine. ut can be installed natively in linux, but alas, it won't even think about installing natively in a 64-bit environment as far as i could tell05:50
geniiikyn_: ctrl-alt-f1 to get back where you were05:50
Mayankwebcamwonder, but on this machine installation was easy as toast..the difference is - i have p-4, 2.4, other machine has p-4, 2.8...05:50
ikyn_genii: I opted for crtl+alt+del - restarting now... oi05:50
jrgponetinsoldier, oh, I thought you might mean a "wine windows game". but yeah, I can play urbanterror (also linux native) on this box fine too05:50
ikyn_genii - going back to recovery mode console05:50
bonez45nickrud: I pasted your sources.list in and then attempted to run sudo apt-get update.. am I supposed to run anything else before it...?05:50
geniiikyn_: This is perhaps why you keep ending up in recovery mode...hard resets ets05:50
Csanais there a way to change the master volume using BASH?05:51
WebcamWonderMayank: Do you have the ISO file already under the directory of Wubi?05:51
nickrudbonez45, no. But before you do anything else, you did change it from intrepid to hardy!!?05:51
wj32Csana: alsamixer05:51
Mayankwebcamwonder, not on this machine before, and not on other machine, why so difference...?05:51
nickrudbonez45, gotta ask that, just for due diligence :)05:51
onetinsoldierjrgp: well, i'm not sure if i know what you're saying. is that a 32-bit game and you got it to install into 64-bit natively?05:51
bonez45nickrud:  yes, I painstakingly went through and changed all intrepids to hardys...;)05:52
jrgponetinsoldier, correct05:52
brEzHi, I'm using Ubuntu 8.10 and I have open-shh server running - I was wondering if there was a way to view what another user is doing while in my box?05:52
WebcamWonderMayank: Are you telling me it never downloaded the iso file on the first PC?05:52
wj32jrgp: can't 32-bit progs run natively on 64-bit OSes?05:52
nickrudbonez45, hehe I like search and replace. sudo apt-get update <-- if it didn't fail, you're good to go05:52
bonez45nickrud: then I ran sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart.. and still this is all I get now.. scott@essen:~$ sudo apt-get update 0% [Connecting to mirrors.us.kernel.org (] [Connecting to archive.canonical.com (] [Connecting to download.virtu05:52
jrgpwj32, sometimes05:52
onetinsoldierjrgp: hmm, perhaps i need to install some more 32-bit stuff.. like lib32readline5 or something. i'll look into it, thank you!05:53
ikyn_genii: perhaps a reinstall is in order then?05:53
WebcamWonderbrEz: You can run top, and see the application using the highest processor/memory05:53
Teknotry sudo /etc/init.d/NetworkManager restart05:53
geniiikyn_: Not yet05:53
jrgponetinsoldier, anytime05:53
nickrudbonez45 do you have an http_proxy set anywhere?05:53
Mayankyes..yes...i have installed many time wubi on my machine (first machine), but after checksum, its copy the whole iso from cd directly...so the other machine why downloading from net?05:53
bonez45W: Failed to fetch http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/dists/intrepid/Release.gpg  Could not connect to archive.canonical.com:80 (, connection timed out05:53

ubuntunetbookhowdy room05:53
Hammerjakeseven73, ggVG05:53
bonez45nickrud: that is what I am getting now after several seconds...05:53
ikyn_genii: it's a fresh install - I haven't actually been able to make it work correctly yet on this computer05:53
brEzWebcamWonder: can I physically view what they're typing etc through a terminal?05:53
nickrudbonez45 do you have an http_proxy set anywhere?05:53
Mayankwebcamwonder, yes..yes...i have installed many time wubi on my machine (first machine), but after checksum, its copy the whole iso from cd directly...so the other machine why downloading from net?05:53
jrgpeseven73, you might want to try nano instead. it's like command line notepad05:53
eseven73Hammerjak: after im in visual mode i do that?05:54
ubuntunetbookim running a netbook with ubuntu05:54
geniiikyn_: nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf        and change the "i810"       to "vesa"05:54
Csanais there a way to change the master volume using a bash COMMAND?05:54
wj32jrgp: how do you select all in nano?05:54
WebcamWonderbrEz: I am not sure with that05:54
ikyn_genii: I'm at the $ command prompt05:54
WebcamWonderMayank: Is this intrepid?05:54
wj32jrgp: actually, how do you even select in nano?05:54
eseven73jrgp: usually i use nano, but im trying to learn vim :)05:54
geniiikyn_:Then: sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf        and change the "i810"       to "vesa"05:54
Hammerjakeseven73, gg goes to top of file, V goes visual-line, G goes to bottom of file05:54
bonez45nickrud: I do not have an http_proxy set anywhere, that I know of....again this 8.04 LTS server edition.. I installed this about a month ago... and haven't used it much.. but now I need to.....05:54
WebcamWonderMayank: Are you trying to install intrepid?05:54
eseven73ah nice ty Hammerjak05:54
jrgpwj32, eseven73, you can highight the text using your mouse then middle click to paste05:54
ikyn_genii: then?05:55
wj32jrgp: ah but i was thinking of just using the keyboard05:55
Mayankwhat thats mean?, webcamwonder?05:55
nickrudbonez45, I would look in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/* , see if a proxy has been set anywhere05:55
bonez45nickrud: I am sure there's something simple to explain it...05:55
WebcamWonderMayank: Are you trying to install 8.10 Intrepid Ibex?05:55
eseven73jrgp: yeah but in nano it only lets me select one page at at ime05:55
bonez45nickrud: ok, checking there now05:55
geniiikyn_: Then ctrl-x   to exit the editor, choosing Y to save,   Enter key to same name05:55
ikyn_genii: done - then?05:55
Mayankyes...8.10 ubuntu version..webcamwonder05:55
geniiikyn_: Then as before:  sudo /etc/init.d/kdm start05:55
ikyn_genii: rgr05:55
ubuntunetbookanyone running a netbook?05:56
nickrudbonez45, but we do know it's at your end anywayt05:56
jrgpeseven73, wj32 I'm positive nano must have some key combination way of doing it. I'm positive emacs does05:56
eseven73jrgp: yeah i know emacs does since its an Operating system OOOOPS! i mean text editor! hehe05:56
ikyn_genii: says it's already running. If I hit Alt+F7, the screen goes blank but has a blinking cursor in the upper left. Crtl+Alt+F1 brings me back to prompt05:56
Csanais there a way to change the master volume using a bash COMMAND?05:57
bonez45nickrud: that folder /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/ contains these files 70debconf, 05aptitude, 01ubuntu, 01autoremove and 00trustcdrom   is that the correct folder to check?05:57
WebcamWonderMayank: There should be a log in the %temp% folder, you can look at it with regards to why your Wubi is insisting on downloading the iso... Also, you can download the latest version of Wubi, and try to directly put the Wubi in a new folder, and the iso in the same folder with the correct naming convention05:57
rwwCsana: alsamixer, maybe? I haven't messed with sound for a while, but that used to work way back in the day05:57
nickrudikyn_, genii he might be on F8 or F9 -- that's happened to me for some obscure reason a couple times05:57
nickrudbonez45, yes05:57
Csanayah but thats not a comman05:57
geniiikyn_: Try in series   alt-f2   then alt-f3 and so on through the F keys at top til you get to last one, see if its running on a higher console05:57
Csanaas in likeset volume=10005:57
techsupportwj32, mounted, what do i do next ?05:58
Csana*set volume=100   <---not real05:58
bonez45nickrud: I open each of those files and none refer to any proxies05:58
geniiikyn_: You can get back any time to first console with the ctrl-alt-f105:58
wj32techsupport: open the .tar.gz file and extract it to your desktop05:58
techsupportwj32, i have .gz and .rpm files05:58
hole_how do you roll back drivers in ubuntu05:58
techsupportwj32, i dont have a desktop05:58
ikyn_genii: I hit Alt+F2 and it came to another console, where I entered my login infor05:58
rwwCsana: hrm. Take a look at "man amixer", then. It seems to do something like that, but again, I haven't tested it.05:59
wj32techsupport: oops05:59
wj32techsupport: i forgot you're on ubuntu server05:59
geniigah, rpm05:59
wj32techsupport: well i never learnt how to extract tar.gzs05:59
wj32techsupport: it must be tar -xzf or something05:59
techsupportwj32, tar xvzf filename.gz returns a bunch of errors that say : cannot create symlink to suck file or directory05:59
geniiikyn_: Don't login to every console :) They will be all the same. Look for the one the kdm is on05:59
ikyn_tar -xvzf05:59
Lochinvarhi, im trying to install screenlets. And Im a breand new to ubuntu...I notive it's not in the synaptic pachage mgr, how do I go about doing it?05:59
nickrudbonez45, I'm at a loss then. If you can browse you know your net is good. The only reason apt would have problems, in my experience, is it is somehow being sent through a proxy that doesn't exist (had this happen once to me early on)05:59
ikyn_genii: how do I know which one KDM i son05:59
Mayank%temp% folder in xp, webcamwonder?06:00
WebcamWonderMayank: Yeah06:00
geniiikyn_: If you see a graphical login screen and not text one, that will be the one06:00
rwwCsana: nope. I'm just putting your nickname in front of messages I send to the channel that I want you to read. Most clients highlight messages with your nickname in them in a different color.06:00
rwwCsana: It's a different thing from /msg. Also, you're welcome :)06:00
wj32techsupport: tar -xzf vmware-whatever.tar.gz06:00
ikyn_genii: the only one that changes the screen is Alt+f7 - and it never resolves into a GUI06:00
Mayankclean install is much bewtter then wubi, right webcamwonder?06:00
WebcamWonderMayank: What do you mean by "clean install"06:01
rwwMayank: yes, clean install is better, albeit more difficult (sometimes)06:01
geniiikyn_: OK. So it runs but is messed up then.06:01
wj32techsupport: then cd vmware-distrib06:01
wj32techsupport: sudo ./vmware-install06:01
bonez45nickrud: well I have no idea if I can browse on that box.. as it has no X installed... no browser......06:01

nickrudbonez45, doh. Lemme see if there's one installed by default06:02
rwwMayank: you have Ubuntu installed right now using the whole hard disk, and you want to install Windows XP as well?06:02

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.06:43

fweetokay so ,  how stable is Debian on PAE kernel06:56
joe_-egh. pae.06:56
wj32fweet: how would it be less stable?06:56
cojwj32: it boots from C:/D:. where windows is, as of yesterday when i checked it06:56
wj32fweet: i imagine PAE's acheieved by some paging magic?06:56
fweetok, how compatible is it06:56
fweetwith other apps06:56
fweetlike WINE06:56
Flannelfweet: Honestly, you shuld strongly consider just going 64bit06:56
wj32fweet: it wouldn't make a difference with user-mode programs06:57
raylucoj: that means literally nothing :P06:57
wj32fweet: user-mode programs don't know about paging06:57
t_Is wine better than using virtual machine?06:57
joe_-Flannel: Seconded.06:57
fweetdoes wine run out of the box on 64-bit?06:57
philstupid , i speak english for you06:57
cojraylu: o :P06:57
Gneafweet: #debian would probably be a better place to ask that. if you would like to support all 8gigs, you should give 64-bit a shot.06:57
raylut_: no, but it's easier06:57
wj32coj: try and install grub on /dev/sdb then06:57
raylucoj: that's like saying "it's on /media/asdfjwaoiefhaowejf"06:57
munimBlackPanther: well... it could be.. but I heard that the Atheros drivers are not very reliable06:57

rayluwj32: ...06:58
fweetso ubuntu 32-bit can detect and use 8 gigs using AMD64?06:58
raylut_: what are you using virtualbox for anyway?06:58

somaunnsorry i'm looking for an flash autoring software for ubuntu 8.1006:58

fweetbasically i hate how 64-bit not run WINE well06:58
philfweet,  do you NEED 8 gib of ram ?06:59
wj32Flannel: why couldn't 32-bit ubuntu use 8 Gigs of ram?06:59
t_raylu taking software from my old xp into the virtual machine06:59
fweetthere seem to be galore of hacks to make wine work on 64-bit06:59
Gneafweet: 64-bit Ubuntu can detect and use 8 gigs of ram.06:59
wj32Flannel: the whole point of PAE is for 32-bit processors to use more than 4 gigs of ram06:59
t_raylu, are are some things I'd like to keep06:59
phileven for Far Cry 2 ? :P06:59
raylufweet: heh. there are a galore of hacks to make wine work on 32-bit :P06:59
wj32fweet: ubuntu 32-bit can use 8 gigs of ram06:59
joe_-wj32: But it's not much more if I recall correctly.06:59
philstupid questions06:59
fweeti had a lot of issues on 64-bit06:59
wj32the thing is with PAE, apps can't address more than 4 GB of RAM06:59
mgolischwhy would you need to use wine anyways?06:59
t_raylu, I also prefer microsoft word over open office because of the options07:00
wj32since their pointer sizes are still 32-bit07:00
munimsorry i had to run.. mom called.07:00
Flannelwj32: It could, but I assumed he was confused when he said "32bit ubunt uwith AMD64"07:00
raylut_: eh?07:00
Gneawj32: do you have a link to get that setup?07:00
philwell ,  you re right07:00
rebel_kidt_, so you prefer instability, closed source, and anti-freedom?07:00
wj32Gnea: what setup?07:00
Gneawj32: pae07:00
cojwj32: interestingly, sdb1 is my windows partition (?!!?!)07:00
fweetbecause im a gamer07:00
t_raylu, I can't run linux "alone"07:00
mgolischuse windows then..07:00
wj32Gnea: doesn't ubuntu detect PAE automatically?07:00
fweetalso a programmer07:00
raylut_: still confused.07:00
wj32coj: just install grub on all three drives07:00
cojwj32: also, in my menu.lst, under the windows option, there's a remapping of hd0 to hd1 and hd1 to hd007:00
t_raylu, as a student, I need flexibility for college07:01
mgolischwj32: i think you need the server kernels07:01
fweetalso a linux admin07:01
wj32coj: oh07:01
cojwj32: o ok07:01
wj32mgolisch: i dunno about kernels07:01

cojwj32: let me pastebin it07:01
philI ve been using Linux since years , even ploayint Unreal with a Voodoo1 in Wine07:01
raylut_: you know you're doing it wrong when you turn to microsoft for flexibility07:01
t_raylu, And its a really cool thing to show off to friends07:01
mgolischthe generic ones dont have pae if i recall correctly07:01

Flannelphil: Let the ops deal with everyone else.  You just worry about you.07:03
fweetok then thats worthless07:03
wj32fweet: try vmware workstation then07:03
fweetso WINE is my only option07:03
t_raylu, and xp was given to me for free. I might as well put it to practical use I case I run into any programs that work exclusively on windows07:03
fweetand WINE runs like crap on 64-bit07:03
wj32coj: that should be alright then07:03
wj32coj: but you said you had three hard drivess07:04
wj32coj: oh wait you do07:04

fweeti guess i'll just downgrade to 2 gigs07:05
philFlannel,  sorry , it s not my place07:05
fweetthen get a separate pac07:05
Gneafweet: why? 32bit can do 4gigs07:05
wj32fweet: you could recompile the kernel07:05
munimemulator to run another OS? so its just another virtualisation software right?07:05
cojwj32: pastebin.com/m2d580ce5 <-- mounted drives07:05
fweeti thought 32-bit only does 3 gigs07:05
Flannelphil: Its less about that, more about keeping the noise down07:05
joe_-fweet: 3.5ish I think07:05
wj32fweet: no07:05
Flannelfweet: It addresses 4GB of addresses, which generally works out to about 3.2G or so of RAM07:05
raylucoj: what the hell?07:05
joe_-Ah 3.207:06
phildont understand , don t forget i m french :P07:06
wj32fweet: the virtual address space of each program is split up into two07:06
raylufweet: you're confusing linux and windows :P07:06
Gneafweet: no, it might only detect 3.2 off the bat, but you can make it do 407:06
wj32fweet: one for the program, one for the kernel07:06
wj32fweet: see wikipedia for more info07:06
cojraylu: something weird?07:06
raylucoj: /dev/sda1 on /media/Fat Momma type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096)07:06
B|ackPantherwhat would make  one the computer not recognise wireless connections after a restart .I had this working just a moment ago.07:06
wj32fweet: i think linux reserves 3gigs for the program, 1 gig for the kernel07:06
fweetwait so, PAE is only for servers? and won't work for ubuntu gnome etc...?07:06
philare all sata /sda now ?07:06
rayluB|ackPanther: have you run "lsmod | grep ath"?07:07
wj32fweet: you have to enable it when compiling the kernel07:07
cojall drives are /sd i believe07:07
Flannelfweet: No, its for all kernels, however in Ubuntu, only the server kernel has PAE enabled07:07
munimBlackPanther: maybe the device is not started.. or the wireless network is not in range07:07
mgolischfweet: sure it does, you just need a pae enabled kernel07:07
Gneaphil: they were something else?07:07
fweetcant i just apt-get the pae kernel?07:07

LuigiSpeaking of that, sometimes my loging screen doesn't appear and the screen goes black (I mean still lit and all, just black) with no cursor or pointer. I get around this by never logging out, but it's annoying because I can never hibernate and sometimes have to restart 2-3 times to get to the login screen.07:24

ubottuYou can use <tab> for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.07:42

rayluBikeguy: mounts everything in fstab07:44

Hilikusraylu where? i think it should be /usr/share/ but im not sure, and thats not enough, there are apache permissions to be set and stuff like that07:44
rayluHilikus: do you have a webserver set up locally?07:44
Hilikusits not just mv'ing files07:44
Hilikusof course07:44
