BluesKajok, din't know that ...I'm using a modifies python script to initiate a server for my video and audio file locations , it's called pytivo.py and it works well00:00
=== root is now known as Guest7298
BluesKajuses the tivo as a media server on out home network00:01
ActionParsnipBluesKaj: it could be called this.is.a.script.to.amke.coffe.script00:01
ActionParsnipand ity wouldnt matter00:02
ActionParsnipits executable and the first line #!/bin/bash means its a shell script00:02
BluesKajyeah, that makes sense00:02
ActionParsnipand its different for python scripts but the shell still knows its a python script and throws it at the interpreter00:03
BluesKajright , it looks for python and then the path00:03
HappynessHello, does anyone here use Konversation?00:12
=== |DarkSmoke| is now known as DS-BrB
ActionParsnipHappyness: i dont but i have blackbelt google-fu and 2nd dan ask.com-chi00:12
ActionParsnipHappyness: ask away00:12
HappynessActionParsnip: Alright, well I just wondering if there is any scripts for Konversation, lika nicktracking and so on, like Mirc.00:13
HappynessActionParsnip: I have searched on google btw, but did not find anything intereseting.00:14
ActionParsnipHappyness: does it highlight selected name. Ive never used mirc as I dont use windows00:14
HappynessActionParsnip: I want to make a script which tracks a user in IRC. Find out which usernames a user have been using and so on.00:15
ActionParsnipHappyness: im not sure myself but if you can put up with the nag, mirc runs with wine00:16
ActionParsnipHappyness: i dont know of such a feature myself as my irc usage is super basic00:17
=== DS-BrB is now known as DarkSmoke
HappynessActionParsnip: Well I am not an highadvanced user myself. I just heard that there is such a script for mIRC00:17
ActionParsnipHappyness: its not something i knew existed00:18
cuzntits a sparkle script i think00:18
ActionParsnipHappyness: try later as different users will be connected00:18
HappynessActionParsnip: Then another thing is that I cannot use "/media" to show what amarok is playing.00:18
ActionParsnipHappyness: i wouldnt run that in here. OPs don't like broadcasts of what you are playing because, no one cares00:19
HappynessActionParsnip: Not here of course, in other channels.00:19
ActionParsnipHappyness: sounds like cuznt knows a thing or 300:20
cuznti was wrong00:21
HappynessActionParsnip: When i type "/media" it says that no supported player is currently active, but I am using amarok 2 :P00:21
cuzntsparkle was the name of the bot that ran the script00:21
Happynesscuznt: Which script?00:21
BluesKajHappyness, if you and the user are on the same server then a whois followed by his/her nicks will tell you what chats they are in .00:21
cuzntpisg is an IRC channel statics generator written in Perl, it creates statistics from different logfile formats. It was originally written because IRCStats wasn't open source.00:22
HappynessBluesKaj: Well, I want a feature like tracking a user, like "/track nick". It should then print like This nick has also used the nicks:  nick1, nick2 and so on, or other features are welcome too :)00:22
BluesKajHappyness,  in the server  type :/whois nick00:22
BluesKajwell if your scipt doesn't do it then the whois thing will do some of it at least00:23
HappynessBluesKaj: Sounds interesting, does some nice features, but not exactly what I looked for :P00:24
BluesKajworks in konverstion too :)00:24
BluesKajerr konversation00:25
HappynessBluesKaj: Yes, thats is for sure.00:26

illmortalCan someone please help me install my Wireless PCI network adapter? It's a BCM4318 chip set and this installation tutorial does NOT work: http://www.sampbar.com/2008/11/broadcom-bcm4318-ubuntu-intrepid.html02:49
illmortalNdiswrapper shows an error that utils doesn't exist even after installing Ndiswrapper from LiveCD02:49
ohzieillmortal: "utils doesn't exist" <--Did it say that, exactly?02:50
dr_willisi dident think the 4318 needed ndiswrappers any more. under 8.1002:50
ohzieWording on errors is very important. I've never had any problem with ndiswrapper.02:50
smaxis kubuntu better than fedora?02:50
dr_willisat least My old Laptop I THINK dident need ndiswrappers02:50
illmortalyes ohzie02:51
ohziesmax: kubuntu or xubuntu yes.02:51
dr_willissmax,  depends on your needs I guess.02:51
ohziesmax: It feels faster to me.02:51
ohzieFedora is nice in a lot of ways, but the only problem I've ever had with ubuntu was ehci_hcd, and Fedora has the same problem02:51
smaxwhats ehci_hcd02:52
ohziesmax: from what I understand, the thing that makes usb 2.0 superior to 1.0/1.102:52
illmortaldr_willis i dunno... normally i can left click the disconnected from network icon and it would list a few wireless networks to choose from.02:52
dr_willissome USB controller cards/chipsets  can have issues with some of the  ehci stuff... not seen that issue in years however02:53
dr_willisi seem to recall years ago  ohci and ehci for usb drivers.. but its been so long since ive had to mess with those - i forget the resaons for the 202:54
illmortalohzie what's mind boggling is that my newest Linksys network pci adapter is recognized (but something is wrong with it) and this older network adapter isn't recognized.02:55
ohzieillmortal: Strange.02:56
illmortalis there any reason why ndiswrapper would install but throws the error that the utils doesn't exist?02:58
dr_willisyou did try  the b43 fwcutter packagte first?  you do need the firmware for the  nic's i recall... But My card may not of been the same chipset as yours. I dont even have tha tlaptop any more02:59
dr_willis!find b4302:59
ubottuFound: b43-fwcutter02:59
dr_willis!info b43-fwcutter02:59
ubottub43-fwcutter (source: b43-fwcutter): Utility for extracting Broadcom 43xx firmware. In component main, is optional. Version 1:011-4ubuntu1 (intrepid), package size 15 kB, installed size 100 kB02:59
illmortali heard b43-fwcutter = horrible <,<03:00
dr_willison my laptop + 8.10 - installed b43-fwcutter = wireless working within 3 min..03:00
dr_willisIve heard ndiswrapper = Horriable03:00
dr_willis8.10 did a lot of changes to the wireless drivers/updated to the wireless stuff.. a lot of the old docs suggest ndiswrappers. that are no lonnger the best way to doit03:01
dr_willisI would say check the forums for your exact card. and see what others suggest using with 8.1003:01
illmortalis b43-fwcutter already located in the synaptic or do i need internet access to download it?03:01
dr_willisb43-fwcutter (source: b43-fwcutter): Utility for extracting Broadcom 43xx firmware. In component main, is optional.03:02
dr_willisoptional = not installed by default :)03:02
dr_willisthe package actually downloads/installs the firmware03:02
illmortalso i'm screwed if ubuntu has no internet access to begin with?03:03
dr_willisunless you have access to a different machine and can grab whatever packages you need.03:03
dr_willisIve never had that problem03:03
illmortalya i can't hardwire... only thing i can attempt is to download it via windows, send it to thumb drive, then log into ubuntu and install from thumb drive03:04
stanley_is there a program i can use to create .cab files??03:04
faileasillmortal: not that easy but you can poke around a repo to find it03:05
dr_willisIf the windows machine had a spare nic. you could connect to it and use ICS to get to the net through it.03:05
faileasor run kubuntu in a VM, download the packages, then use aptcd or something to move it over03:06
illmortalnah I only have one machine.... my only option is to download the file and then transport it via thumb drive once i log back into ubuntu.03:08
dr_willisYou can easially use virtualbox to do like faileas  suggests. :) may be easier in the long run..03:09
dr_willisor are you saying the ONE machine you got with windows is ONLY wireless?03:09
illmortali only have one machine03:09
illmortaland it's only wireless03:09
illmortaldual boot with windows xp and ubuntu03:10
dr_willisYou can install ubuntu inside virtualbox. and let it grab the packages then. it can share the network connection.03:10
dr_willisyou could even do that via virtualbox + the live cd iso.. and apt-get install the files, copy over to some directory03:10
illmortalso install ubuntu via VM... download the packages... log out of windows then log back into ubuntu and try to find the package i downloaded?03:11
dr_willisIm not sure how you 'download' the firmware - the fw-cutter package actually downloads them when you install the fwcutter package  - i belive03:11
dr_willisIt must cache them somewhere. :)03:11
faileasillmortal: install ubuntu over VM, use aptcd to make a cd, boot back to linux, use cd to install03:11
faileasif its a usb device (some wireless is) you could also use virtualbox and pipe the usb device over to it and do some other stuff that way03:12
illmortalusing aptcd would do what... create a Ubuntu with fw-cutter already integrated with the distro?..03:14
illmortalyou know what... forget it, this is more complicated than it needs to be. I'll stick to windows for now =\03:15
faileasno, it would make a cd with all the packages you installed03:15
illmortalok but at the end I'm still gonna need to have internet access for fw-cutter to download the correct firmware.03:16
dr_willisUnless ya figure out where its getting the stuff from03:17
dr_willisYou could proberly grab all the files with a live cd,. and virtualbox - easially enough. and copy over to the windows partition.03:18
dr_willisno need to 'install' to virtualbox. if the live cd  can do it03:18
illmortalI don't think the livecd has the capability to connect to the internet.03:19
dr_willisIf hes runnign the live cd inside virtualbox.. it can use the windows network connection03:19
illmortalwithout installing ubuntu into the VM?03:20
illmortalactually no... you can only install ubuntu into the VM03:21
dr_willisactually you CAN run the livecd.iso inside virtualbox. and install things  to the livecd.. they just get lost when you reboot.03:21
dr_willisI do it all the time03:21
illmortalhow do i open up the virtual box independently?03:22
dr_willisYou install virtualbox on the windows machine.. run it.. tell it to boot the kubuntu.iso file.  the apt-get install the stuff you need..  then copy the installed/downloaded packages from /var/cache/apt (or whatever) to  somewhere your  linux box will be able to access tehm.03:23

bvalek2witakr: do you use Kubuntu 8.10? (this is the new version)07:04
bvalek2witakr: try the dolphin file manager, if you plugged it in, it must be there somewhere among the devices. if you find it, and you find a weird directory in it, dont worry, look inside. somewhere there must be your music files07:05
illmortalbvalek2, is there anyway to see if there's any hidden files or hidden partitions on this hard drive?07:06
bvalek2Roey: pidgin is the most popular communication program on Linux (at least in Hungary), i am sure it supports webcams (but i got used to aMSN)07:06
witakrwell wouldnt/shouldnt it be in the "storage media"... thats where my internal and external hard drives are .... my usb thumb drives too but not my player07:06
bvalek2illmortal: you use Linux, and Linux programs for this, right?07:06
illmortalbvalek2, this hard drive is specifically an ext2 storage hard drive for both windows XP and Ubuntu.07:07
bvalek2witakr: when i tried to connect my camera, it was on a separate place, not together with storage media07:07
Roeybvalek2:  aye07:08
Roeybvalek2:  I'm wondering why I don't see 30 fps here.... it stays at 7-807:08
bvalek2illmortal: i only partitioned with install CDs so far. Linux install CD made proper partitions, and i assume, that this is their regular tool. Windows partitioners do weird things with HDs07:09
witakrbvalek2: thats oddd... any hint or suggestions as to where i should look? im not yet familiar with this file system... im still used to windows07:09
illmortalRight... and I've never used Windows to format nor partition this drive nor any drive. I strictly use Linux.07:09
witakramarok cant see it either if that helps bvalek207:10
bvalek2witakr: try looking around, maybe in dolphin. in the worst case (if there is no support for you player in 8.04), you need Kubuntu 8.10, because the new kernel may support your device. but lets be optimistic, and assume, that its there, just hidden somewhere :)07:11
witakrwell id love to upgrade the new kde looks awesome but i cant seem to burn an images that lets me install from they always ended up with " corrupt or missing vital files"07:13
bvalek2Roey: maybe you can set up your camera somewhere. or, your connection to the person you are talking with is slow07:13
Roeybvalek2:  my webcam says it supports 1600x1200 and 30fps; I chose more conservative settings but luvcview says it can't get those:   Frame size:   960x720 (requested size 1024x768 is not supported by device)07:13
Roey  Frame rate:   15/1 fps (requested frame rate 30 fps is not supported by device)07:13
Roey 07:13
bvalek2Roey: my camera is very minimal compared to this. i am afraid, i can help with fancy cam :)07:13
szrhawaiican anyone tell me how to swap out the kernel properly07:14
szrhawaiiso it doesnt crash07:14
bvalek2witakr: did you download the iso file, and burned to a CD? did it work without problems?07:14
szrhawaiiim using this to upgrade the kernel https://launchpad.net/~kernel-ppa/+archive07:14
bvalek2szrhawaii: try ##kernel too07:15
witakrwell i installed8.04 from a disc mailed to me from the website but when i burn the image(in windows and kubuntu) it hangs up or wont install07:15
szrhawaiihas anyone swapped kernels before07:16
bvalek2witakr: burning the image to a CD, and installing with that CD are two distinct things. where did you got problems?07:16
illmortalDoes anyone know of a program that Ubuntu can use in order to find any hidden files or hidden partitions on a hard drive? My reformatted hard drive claims that 7GB of space is used atm and I don't know how.07:17
szrhawaiifor your hard ware illmortal07:17
witakrinstalling frrom the cd i burn my self... i dont know if it was the software or what but when i burn the iso and then i try to install from it... it hangs up07:18
szrhawaiiits to save your bios settings and hardware configurations07:18
illmortalwhat do you mean for my hardware?07:18
illmortalJees.... 1-2gb is more realistic -.-07:18
illmortalis there any way I can rid these configuration files? This is a storage hard drive, nothing else.07:19
bvalek2witakr: if the CD that you burned from ISO can boot, and installer starts, then you CD must be good. the problem occurs during the install then. did you have problems with connecting to the internet during an install? when its downloading packages07:21
cstonerillmortal: You can use the program df (disk space free) or du (disk space used) to find out where the big files are07:23
cstonerAlso, it'd be worth checking the partition tables to make sure all of the space is being partitioned07:23
yao_ziyuanafter running kubuntu/kde 4.2 for a hour, it always begins to slow down07:23
illmortalcstoner, how do i check the partition tables?...07:24
yao_ziyuandon't you think kde 4.2 has serious memory leaks?07:24
szrhawaiiyao_ziyuan turn off your deskto effects07:24
illmortalthere should only be one partition on this hard drive =\07:24
cstoneryou can use fdisk, but be careful you don't write anything07:24
yao_ziyuanszrhawaii: all right07:24
bvalek2yao_ziyuan: KDE 4.2 is beta software, it is still tested. if you find a problem with it, i am sure that the KDE development team will be very happy if you send them a bugreport07:25
illmortalcstoner... I'm gettin an odd error.07:25
szrhawaiiyao_ziyuan thats what was slowing down my comp when i downloaded 4.207:25
cstonerie "sudo fdisk /dev/sda" (for SATA drives) or "sudo fdisk /dev/hda" (for ATA) PLEASE read the man page for fdisk first, though07:25
illmortalah ok hol don07:25
cstonerwhat sort of "odd error"07:25
yao_ziyuanbvalek2: the performance regression is so obvious that anyone using it for more than 1 hour will notice07:26
bvalek2yao_ziyuan: KDE 4.2 is beta software, it is still tested. if you find a problem with it, i am sure that the KDE development team will be very happy if you send them a bugreport07:26
cstoneryao_ziyuan: I have a 3 day uptime under 4.2 with no noticable slowdown07:26
illmortalcstoner, after using fdisk /dev/sda   : The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 60801. (this is on a 500gb hd)07:27
illmortalif I use fdisk -l it claims that it cannot open 3 drives <,<07:27
cstonerWell, a 500gb drive will ACTUALLY have closer to 490GB of usable space... It's stupid, but HDs are measured with 1000byte units rather than 102407:28
illmortali think legitimately it's 46507:29
illmortalwhich is what i have, then there's 7gb that's used.. which i can't figure out.07:29
faileascstoner: its not stupid, its business ;)07:29
cstonerare you running fdisk as root? you have to be root07:29
cstonerbusiness is stupid07:29
cstonerexcept Canonical, of course ;)07:31
illmortal /dev/sda1               1       60801   488384001   83  Linux07:32
illmortalit's showing up on fdisk07:33
illmortalfdisk -l but i still need to know where the 7gb of used space is comin from =\07:33
illmortaland I forget how to mount it =X07:33
cstonerdu will tell you where the space is being used07:34
illmortalso just type sudo du ?07:34
illmortalor sudo du /dev/sda ?07:34
maxmahemAnybody got a secound to help me figure out how to configure my soundcard? It doesn't seem to be working.07:34
cstonerno sudo needed07:34
cstonertry a "man du" first.07:34
crimsunmaxmahem: please download http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh, save it to your Desktop, and in a Konsole, type: bash ~/Desktop/alsa-info.sh07:35
illmortalok cstoner, this is a manual I'm lookin at07:35
cstoneryup. It will tell you how to use du better than I can07:36
illmortalnot really... the manual lacks in explaining how to run du on just a specific drive.07:37
cstoner... you don't run it on a drive, you run it on a file or directory07:37
cstonerHence why the first line reads "Summarize disk usage of each FILE, recursively for directories."07:38
illmortal<_< that's not gonna help me if I can't find files in this drive to begin with....07:38
cstonerwhere is it mounted07:38
illmortalthat's another problem (keep in mind im a linux noob) I need to mount this drive and I've been searching up and down on the "ubuntu help" and I can't find any documentation07:39
cstonerhow many drives are in your machine?07:39
illmortal2 physical drives.07:40
maxmahemSorry that took a sec, out put is at: http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=521b2031fd8efcd670320d9193685488e85b2a5c07:40
illmortalthe SATA (sda) drive is the one that needs to be mounted07:40
illmortalWhen I check, "computer" that SATA drive is missing.07:41
cstonerhow is it formatted? (ext3, xfs, ntfs, fat32, etc)07:41
cstonerthe command "mount /dev/sda1 /place/to/mount/to" will mount it07:42
illmortalthe part of /place/to/mount can you give me an example?....07:43
cstonerUmmm.... /mnt/some_name would be a regular place. Anywhere should work, just make sure the directory exists and is empty07:43
illmortalah ok07:44
cstonerempty is technially optional, but it makes life easier07:44
illmortalwait.. mount point has to already exist?07:44
cstoneryeah, just mkdir a directory somewhere07:45
sigma20so when is package kit going into jaunty? and is kaffeine anywhere near completion? i need a playlist for my videos lol07:46
sigma20walking to the computer to change it manually is way too much work!07:47
illmortalroflmao now my HD is down to 435GB of free space.07:47
illmortalThis is epic.07:47
illmortalalright so I created the mount point /storage07:47
sigma20what did you do to it illmortal?07:47
crimsunmaxmahem: sec07:47
illmortalsigma20 lol i formatted it.. and apparently 1gb is ticking away per minute07:48
Mamaroksigma20: kaffeine is called dragonplayer in kde407:48
sigma20wtf! that cant be right!07:48
sigma20no kaffeine is a seperate program07:48
cstonerillmortal: is the output of du helping at all?07:49
illmortalcstoner, I created the mount point /storage which put the folder into the root directory07:49
illmortaland added, "lost&found" folder in there...07:49
illmortallet me check07:50
illmortalso for du to check /storage is there anythig special i need to type into terminal?07:50
illmortal sudo du /storage07:51
illmortalthat's the output.07:51
cstonermaybe df would be more use to you07:52
illmortalim sorry.... du nor df is giving me the information i need.07:52
crimsunmaxmahem: please mute 'IEC958'07:52
cstonerthen you probably didn't allocate all of the sectors for your partition07:53
illmortaland how exactly would I be able to do that?07:53
cstonerreading "man fdisk" would be a start07:54
cstoneror even looking into kparted07:54
maxmahemcrimsun: done. It was muted when I first started but I wasn't getting any sound so I unmuted it. Both ways, I'm still not hearing anything.07:54
crimsunmaxmahem: set 'Digital Source' to either 'AC97 in' or 'SRC out'07:56
maxmahemcrimsun: Tried both, still not hearing anything. My digital output is currently connected to anything though, I have speakers plugged in to just about all my other outputs however.07:58
crimsunmaxmahem: does `speaker-test -Dplughw:0 -c4' give you anything?07:58
illmortalcstoner, i don't know what im supposed to look for.08:00
maxmahemcrimsun: I here nothing, but I did get a whole bunch of Playback open error: -16,Device or resource busy08:00
crimsunmaxmahem: ok, sudo fuser -v /dev/dsp* /dev/seq* /dev/snd/*08:01
crimsunplease pastebin what that command returns08:01
coltinhello everyone, I am having a major annoying problem I really need help with this. I am running Kubuntu 8.10, and someone is trying to remotly access my computer using windows xp pro and ultra vnc, but for the life of us we can not get him connected to my computer. any help would be greatly appreciated08:01
cstonerillmortal: try using qtparted (not kparted, apparently qtparted is more up to date)08:04
coltinshould I just give up or something lol, This has me going nuts. I can connect to him even but he can not connect to me, which made me think its something in my internet connection. but i enabled everything, no firewall on i just dont knwo08:04
illmortalsomeone is claiming that the reason why there's 7gb used on that HD is because it stores the configuration files.08:05
bucketheadcoltin: do you have a router?08:06
maxmahemcrimsun: Done, I think the problem with the sound test may have been I had Amrock running, when I killed it the program continued.08:06
cstonerthat is a lie08:06
cstonermy config files (the /etc directory) take 19M08:06
maxmahemcrimsun: I pasted it's current output up as well.08:07
maxmahemspeaker-test that is.08:07
crimsunmaxmahem: ok, the visual output of speaker-test is not really as important. need to cross-reference something, sec08:08
maxmahemI'm pretty new at this, is there a way I can kill the speaker-test it seems to be running endlessly.08:11
cstonermaxmahem: CTRL-C08:12
maxmahemAh, thank you. That a common abort command in Linux?08:12
cstonerit only works in the shell though. For GUI apps, it's usually the copy command08:15
maxmahemI've always used ctrl+insert, which seems to work here as well.08:19
maxmahemfor copying that is. shift+del for cut, and shift+insert for paste. Not sure where I picked that habpit up thoug.08:20
cstonerI don't like using the insert/del keys if I can help it. They're never in the same spot on different keyboards08:24
* kniolet doesnt even have an insert key on her keyboard :-(08:26
maxmahemI long ago got in the habit of using them, they speed me up alot. But you are right about differeint keyboards messing with the placement.08:26
maxmahemI recently got a new logitech wireless keyboard as a christmas gift, which I love, but they went and moved my home/end/insert stuff around which is driving me batty.08:26
maxmahemAwesome keyboard otherwise, but I can't fathom why the decied to move those keys around. I don't how folks on laptops can live without those insert/home key stuff.08:28

fdovingjoh6nn: is it set to check for updates daily+10:30
JohnyBCrypTom install htop: apt-get install htop and run it, then sort processes by CPU10:30
JohnyBor by RAM10:31
JohnyBdepending on your needs10:31
joh6nnfdoving: do you know where the config file for this is?10:31
joh6nni trawled through /etc/ looking for it, couldn't find it10:31
CrypTomJohnyB: ok, I'll try10:32
CrypTomJohnyB: I cant sort, hitting the F6 key does not work10:34
JohnyBCrypTom: ok, don't forget the <F6> key and select MEM% to see processes by memory10:34
CrypTomJohnyB: I'm logged in via ssh, F1-F10 don't seem to do anything10:35
CrypTomJohnyB: ah, found it, my new keyboards forces me to press another key (function key) while pressing the F-buttons10:37
JohnyBoh :) Great10:37
CrypTomJohnyB: although it looks like the behavior is inverted, as I dont want the special function but the normal one :-)10:37
JohnyBCrypTom what do you mean by inverted behavior?10:39
admin1I am trying to install the proper video drivers for my legacy nvidia tnt video card, but I don't know how.  Could someone help me please?10:39
admin1I have hte drivers downloaded to this computer, but I can't seem to get them to install10:40
joh6nnadmin1: what happens when you try to install them?10:40
CrypTomJohnyB: I have paintings in orange on the F keys, and there is a function key also painted in orange. I have to hit the function key in order to get the F-behavior instead of the special (orange painted) behavior10:41
admin1I get the message "Cannot open file"10:41
admin1what am I doing wrong?10:41
fdovingjoh6nn: update-nofifier itself uses the configs from update-notifier-common which is in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/10:41
fdovingjoh6nn: dpkg -L update-notifier-common for a list of files to check out.10:42
admin1I am also trying to set this computer up for web hosting, but I think that I have that sorta figured out10:42
joh6nnfdoving: thanks10:43
JohnyBCrypTom lol I have nothing in orange man I don't know what are you talking about. Here's how I do: I open the program, I do press F6, select MEM%, and it's sorted by RAM. That's all10:43
geniifdoving: Interesting fact10:43
joh6nnadmin1: what command are you running when it gives you that error?10:43
=== desti_T2 is now known as desti
admin1sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-71.86.06-pkg1.run10:45
admin1that is the command that I am using.  It says to do that on the nvidia website10:45
joh6nnare you doing that from a terminal?10:46
admin1I am using the Konsole terminal progream to try it10:46
geniiadmin1: You need   sh ./filename.sh     if in same dir as it is10:46
admin1and the driver file is on the desktop10:46
admin1how do I switch dir?10:46
admin1and find the file in the terminal?10:47
geniiadmin1:  cd ~/Desktop10:47
admin1and sorry for all the questions, but I am new to kubuntu10:47
CrypTomJohnyB: no worries, its probably something that needs an addition program (probably under windows) to run properly, anyway, it works now!10:48
admin1okay that command did not work10:48
geniiadmin1: I'm pretty sure it did work, if you typed it correctly10:49
admin1I just installed kubuntu 8.04 hardy last night night, and now I am trying to teach myself how to use it10:49
joh6nnadmin1 try "sudo NVIDIA-Linux-x86-71.86.06-pkg1.run"10:49
geniiadmin1: If it doesn't say anything to you like some error when you did:  cd ~/Desktop                         then it was successful10:50
admin1it does say that the dir does not exsist10:50
joh6nnadmin1: unlike windows, linux is case sensitive, so you have to make sure to type Desktop and not desktop10:51
admin1oh okay10:51
joh6nnalso, now would be a good time to double-check and make sure the file is actually on the desktop. :)10:52
admin1it is10:52
admin1I just tried running it, but it says that the file needs to be run as root.  What does that mean?10:53
faileasadmin1: thats wierd. sudo should work10:53
admin1the driver program said that it needs to run under root10:54
admin1the driver program said that it needs to run under root10:54
webaskahi.. i forgot password to phpmyadmin..its quite embarrasing10:54
admin1II am the only user on this computer10:54
joh6nnadmin1: run the command again, but this time, add the word "sudo" to the front of it10:55
admin1what is root?10:55
joh6nnadmin1: root is the linux name for administrator10:55
webaskaany way to change phpmyadmin password?10:56
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about lst10:56
admin1okay it said that I am running an x server, and that I am supposed to exit x before running the program.  how do I do that?10:57
joh6nnfdoving: i think that the problem i've been having is that update-notifier isn't being started when i login to kde.  do you know how it's supposed to be launched at login?10:57
joh6nnadmin1 you'll need to log out.10:57
admin1then what?10:58
admin1if I log back in, it will run the X server again10:58
joh6nnonce you've logged out and you're at the log-in screen, there should be a menu option for "console log-in" or something similar10:58
geniiadmin1: Yes. Also the login screen itself is in X10:58
joh6nngenii: oh, hmm.  yeah, wasn't thinking of that10:59
admin1how do I get out of X then to install these drivers?10:59
joh6nnadmin1: best bet would be to restart, then.10:59
admin1then what?10:59
geniiadmin1: crl-alt-f1    then:  sudo /etc/init.d/kdm stop          (or kdm-kde4)10:59
admin1okay I will have to write these commands down11:00
geniiadmin1: then execute the commands. Then: sudo /etc/init.d/kdm start11:00
joh6nnor you could listen to genii.  he's apparently in a different time zone from me.11:00
maxmahemhmm... does kubuntu use RandR 1.2?11:00
genii!info libxrandr211:02
ubottulibxrandr2 (source: libxrandr): X11 RandR extension library. In component main, is optional. Version 2:1.2.3-1 (intrepid), package size 21 kB, installed size 88 kB11:02
geniimaxmahem: 1.2.3-1  apparently11:03
maxmahemhmm.. cool. thanks.11:03
geniijoh6nn: Actually it's 6 am here but I'm strangely alert :)11:04
joh6nnyeah, it's 6am for me, too, but i'm fighting with Perl's Net::Amazon11:04
geniijoh6nn: Ah, I feel for you11:05
maxmahemokay, if I installed a package, but it didn't show up on my menu, where would I find it?11:05
geniimaxmahem: It might be a command line package. What was the name of it?11:06
maxmahemMultiple Screens, a gtk interface for xrandr11:07
geniijoh6nn: Interesting, theres a package for it, libnet-amazon-perl    and apt-cache search amazon    pulls up some others11:07
geniimaxmahem: Well, theres yer problem. KDE isn't gtk11:07
joh6nnmaxmahem: for me, krandrtray is under system, in the menu11:07
maxmahemYes, I tried that. And while I can resize my monitor, it doesn't let me configure my multiple monitors like I need to.11:08
joh6nngenii: oh, i've got it installed.  the problem is that it appears that either the module is buggy, or amazon is.  take your pic.11:08
geniijoh6nn: Probably the module, if i had to guess.11:09
maxmahemso its a gnome bit eh? hmm. shoot. that won't help me when running KDE then.11:09
nascentmindhi. I disabled the restricted ati drivers using envy-ng and suddenly my X stopped working.. i recovered the xorg.conf file and now kde starts up with the auth screen.. i give my username and password.. kde loads and dies while loading..11:15
nascentmindthere is a startup sound being played which dies in the middle.. how can I recover my kde?11:15
nascentmindcan anybody help me?11:21
joh6nnnascentmind: what's envy-ng?11:22
nascentmindjoh6nn: the restricted driver enabling thing..11:22
nascentmindthere was one default one.. forgot the name ..11:23
nascentmindand i couldn't use the apply button..11:23
joh6nnso you disabled the ati driver you were using11:23
joh6nni'd say your X config is borked11:23
joh6nntry running dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg11:23
nascentmindjoh6nn: yes it screwed up.. and then i did a X -configure..11:23
nascentmindnow X comes up.. kde screws up in between..11:24
ubuntuhelp me pls11:24
ubuntuheeeelp me please11:24
nascentmindhow can i re enable the fglrx driver now? and what does envy-ng do anyway?11:24
ubuntuheeeelp me please11:24
ubuntuheeeelp me please11:24
jussi01ubuntu: state your issue11:25
joh6nnnascentmind: no clue what envy-ng does in the background, but the if you run dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg, it'll bring you through an ncurses wizard for configuring X11:26
nascentmindjoh6nn: isn't that the same thing as X -configure?11:26
joh6nnnascentmind: no clue11:26
nascentmindjoh6nn: i am sorry to say this but kubuntu is really unstable..11:27
joh6nnnascentmind: are you using 8.10?11:27
ubuntuI have live KUBUNTU and my quest is: is here something as ICQ????11:27
jussi01ubuntu: the program called kopete11:27
ubuntujussi01 is installed in this live system<11:28
joh6nnnascentmind: yeah, *buntu does 2 releases a year; the april release is stable. the october release is experimental.  you're using the experimental release. :|11:28
NCommanderjoh6nn, that isn't true11:28
jussi01nascentmind: you can reset your settings which may help with: mv .kde .kdeold11:28
NCommanderEvery release is considered a stable and supported release11:28
jussi01ubuntu: yes11:28
joh6nnNCommander: facts occasionally get in the way of the truth.11:28
ubuntujussi01> thx veeerz much11:28
NCommanderjoh6nn, so your saying I'm wrong?11:29
* NCommander does note that 8.10 Kubuntu has some serious issues, hence why auto-upgrade from 8.04 Kubuntu is disabled out of the box11:29
joh6nnno, i'm saying that the fact that October releases are always best efforts at stable doesn't change the fact that they're testing grounds for new ideas.  hence, they are experimental11:30
nascentmindany chance that i can recover kde?11:30
joh6nnwhich is at least part of why the install i'm on at the moment crashes once a day11:31
jussi01nascentmind: did you see my last comment directed at you?11:31
NCommanderjoh6nn, You do realize that you can't upgrade to .10 releases without installing the previous .04 one?11:31
=== oscc2007 is now known as tboxmy
joh6nnNCommander: i'm sorry, i can't help feeling like that's both a non-sequitur, and sort of a ridiculous question11:33
nascentmindi am quite sure that when there is an upgrade it clobbers the xorg file or something..11:33
tboxmyhi all!11:34
nascentmindsomething really bad is happening when there is an upgrade11:34
NCommanderjoh6nn, I'm being frank that by says that every .10 is "experimental" is trash talk. Spreading misinformation only serves to hurt FOSS and (K)ubuntu11:34
tboxmyjust did an update on intrepid and it included OOo 3.011:34
NCommanderGranted, the last .10 release has issues, mostly due to KDE4 still not being quite there yet. There IS a reason why the auto-upgrade is disabled11:34
tboxmyi cant start OOo 3 at all11:36
nascentmindwho hoo.. finally my kde starts..11:36
nascentmindjussi01: that did the trick..11:37
tboxmyanyone having same prob?11:37
nascentmindand the most funniest part i am checking glxgears now... and i am getting somewhere around 420 fps.. and when i had the driver i was getting 40 fps.11:37
jussi01nascentmind: great.11:37
maxmahemIf I wanted to be a traitor and install gnome on top of kde here, how would I do that?11:38
nascentmindjussi01: should i install the ati driver manually?11:38
Unksimaxmahem: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop11:38
nascentmindor should i use that envy-ng again?11:38
jussi01nascentmind: if it aint broke, dont fix it?11:38
maxmahemUnksi: that rather then using adept? (though I couldn't seem to find it in there).11:39
nascentmindjussi01: when i initially installed ati drivers i was getting a fantastic 1000 fps.. and then after the upgrade it screwed up..11:39
Unksimaxmahem: you can use adept as well, its just easier to give out instructions to cli :)11:39
nascentmindthere was a kernel update too.. would that be the cause?11:39
jussi01nascentmind: you use envy at your own risk, and I wouldnt be suprised if the kernel update did it.11:40
jussi01you could try envy again, but again, your risk.11:41
nascentmindjussi01: yes atleast i know how to recover from a complete X collapse..11:41
nascentmindjussi01: what would a kernel update do to the driver?11:42
jussi01nascentmind: as I understand it, the driver is kernel specific. with the normal one, it will remake it when the kernel is updated, but envy doesnt do that11:42
jussi01thats my un derstanding, I may be wrong11:43
nascentmindnormal one is the open source one you mean?11:43
jussi01no, normal one is installed throught hardware drivers in system11:45
nascentmindso how can i remake it?11:46
jussi01nascentmind: you want the _latest_ or just the stable?11:46
nascentmindshould i install it manually? if i install it manually do i need to reinstall the drivers again when i get a next kernel update?11:46
nascentmindjussi01: i would prefer latest as i have an alsa issue too which is being corrected in the proposed updates.11:47
jussi01nascentmind: my suggestion would be to go to kmenu - system - hardware drivers and install that and see how you go11:47
johann-pierrehow can i download kde 4.2 and install it?11:54
williamI have got my first kubuntu laptop running nice an smooth under intrepid ;-)  One feature I was really looking forward to under kde was the desktop cube which I don't have. Do I need to install this separately?11:55
geniijohann-pierre: It's in the topic11:55
williamjohann, you have to enable a development package source. But I would recommend against it, I tried kde 4.2 but found loads of bugs so switched back to 4.1. It took me ages to remove everything I installed with kde 4.211:56
johann-pierrewilliam, what command can i type in the konsole to install kde 4.1 ?11:56
=== ahmed is now known as Guest23018
williamif you are using kubuntu you should have it, if not you can type  'sudo apt-get install kde'11:57
williamthat's what I did after I remove kde 4.211:57
johann-pierreaaah thanks11:57
johann-pierremy kubuntu is a bit outta date11:57
johann-pierremaybe i should have rather installed debian on this, but with it on the edge of a new release why bother to download :/11:58
hyper_chkde 4.2 beta 2 is much better than 4.111:58
johann-pierreeverything in IT seems to be: future is now, is it too late for that?  What if you have is too old? etc.11:58
maxmahemhmm apprently installing gome removed firefox11:58
williamnot that the kde package pulls in alot of kde including games, edu, etc... if you don't want all that stuff you should use a more clever approach and maybe just install the apps in kde you actually use11:58
johann-pierrehyper_ch:  what is the command to install it?"11:58
hyper_chjohann-pierre: 4.2?11:58
nascentmindjussi01: yes there is a problem with it i guess.. I tried installing it with hardware drivers and the fps is lower than the normal ones..11:58
hyper_chjohann-pierre: adding the according PPA repos11:59
williamhyper_ch, I tried kde 4.2 beta 2 but had loads of corruption on my screen, it may have been a problem between the latest nvidia 180 driver and kde 4.2 though11:59
jussi01nascentmind: looks like envy for you then11:59
johann-pierreAg I'll wait for the final release11:59
ubottuThe /etc/fstab file indicates how drive partitions are to be used or otherwise integrated into the file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab and http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html and !Partitions11:59
hyper_chwilliam: all the people I know are a lot happier with 4.2 than 4.111:59
johann-pierrewhy won't my kubuntu browse my windows network?11:59
nascentmindjussi01: k i deactivated it.. lemme see whether my X will screw up again :)11:59
jussi01nascentmind: good luck. :)12:00
johann-pierrehow can i set the timeout on dolphin's network browsing?12:00
williamhyper_ch, It was probably a but that affect my grahics card and the new 180 drivers. Although they work really well under kde 4.112:00
PSiL0stupid fstab... some days it automounts my ntfs partition fine, and then it goes on the blink and I have to manually re-edit again12:00
PSiL0so annoying12:00
hyper_chwilliam: what the reason to use 1.80 instead of 1.77?12:01
williamQuestion: How does ubuntu handle new releases of kde. will ubuntu provide official kde packages for intrepid or will they be for the new kubuntu version12:01
william1.77 was slow on my 8600GT M12:02
hyper_chwilliam: nope, release number stay12:02
william1.80 is FAST!12:02
nascentmindjussi01: k it reboots fine.. man this is classic.. using ati drivers lowers the fps and removing it increases it.. from 60 to 420..12:02
hyper_chwilliam: how do you measuer "slow" and "fast"?12:02
williamwith 1.80 I have enabled opengl rendering mode + shared memory12:02
williamhyper_ch, switching between windows/plasma applets was very slow with 1.77 on my graphics card12:03
=== oscc2007 is now known as tboxmy
nascentmindjussi01: k now lemme try with envy *sigh*12:03
williamscrolling was awefull too12:03
hyper_chI got a 9500gt with the 1.77 drivers and everything is fine12:03
jussi01nascentmind: again, good luck12:03
PSiL0anyone knows how to make fstab less tempermental?12:04
williamhyper_ch, maybe it's difference between kde 4.2 and kde 4.1?12:04
nascentmindoh and the best part is during the process of enabling.. kmix crashes .. now i just can't understand the connection between these 2..12:04
hyper_chPSiL0: fstab doesn't alter itself12:04
maxmahemhmm should I get a success notification at the end of apt-get instal or when it gives me back cursor is it just done?12:05
williamhyper_ch, when you select files under dolphin or the folder view, does your cursor take time to drow the selection box?12:05
hyper_chwilliam: I don't use dolphin12:05
williammine had a delay/lag under 1.7712:05
stdinmaxmahem: no error means no error :)12:05
williamok, how about under folder view?12:06
maxmahemstdin: sounds good to me12:06
hyper_chwilliam: what folder view?12:06
PSiL0hyper_ch: I wish that was the case... It seems like everytime I reinstall a major app (this time openoffice3), the fstab settings that work so well the past several days do not mount my ntfs partition12:06
hyper_chPSiL0: it is the case.. fstab does not alter itself automatically12:06
PSiL0hyper_ch: I meant to say automount12:06
hyper_chPSiL0: you considered that it could be because of the "ntfs"?12:07
williamhyper_ch, when I click on a plasma applets focus transfers instantly now (it did not before). E.g: I can have focus on a window in the forground and immediatly select files in my plasma folder view with now lag. Before with 1.77 it was unbearable12:07
PSiL0hyper_ch: then why are the automount settings that work fine for several days suddenly trip up after installing a package?12:07
williamPSiL0, I recommend mounding external filesystems manually via kde12:08
williambut that's just my preference12:08
hyper_chwilliam: I don't know what you mean or what you do or where you have problems12:09
hyper_chwilliam: clicking on a plasma applet focus?12:09
hyper_chPSiL0: it is your assumption that it stops working after installing a package12:09
nascentmindjussi01: k same bad performance.. next disabling the driver and installing it manually..12:09
williamPSiL0, what is the last modification date on your fstab?12:09
PSiL0william: I would assume a week ago, but since I re-edited it to where my ntfs partition automounts at startup, I do not know12:10
PSiL0william: I just grabbed the ntfs-g settings from syslog after manually mounting the drive through dolphin and added it in to fstab line for that drive12:11
williamPSiL0, if you think that the installation of openoffice3 is modifying fstab then run a test. record your last modificationd date, remove then reinstall openoffice3....12:11
PSiL0as well as adding uid=1000 for myself12:11
williamit's a vfat?12:11
nascentmindjussi01: ah.. envy has a bug in it..12:12
PSiL0william: umm, I removed openoffice3 originally because it crashed on the first instance, and needed a second instance to load properly..12:12
nascentmindjussi01: X crashed again..12:12
PSiL0after removing it, I just reinstalled it using the deb package from openoffice3.org12:12
PSiL0william: then my ntfs drive wouldn't automount or mount manually12:12
williamPSiL0, I don't understand what openoffice has todo with fstab12:12
williamI think it must have been some other update that you pulled in with openoffice12:13
williammaybe a kernel update?12:13
PSiL0william: me neither, which is why it is so particular that I have to manually reedit fstab every few weeks to automount the same drive12:13
maxmahemI'm still trying to trouble shoot my sound card. Should I be getting multipe device listings from aplay -l?12:13
williamI used to use some software that would modify fstab, I think it was ivman or something like that12:14
PSiL0nah, my fstab settings worked fine after updating the kernal from backports to fix an intel wifi bug12:14
williamit is more likely you have some other software installed that is trying to manage your nfs for you12:14
PSiL0I don't think openoffice3 would pull a kernal update, especially after I check which files are being updated12:14
williamcan you check your package list to see if you have ivman installed?12:15
PSiL0aptitude search ivman*12:15
PSiL0p   ivman12:15
williamwhat about pmount?12:15
williamhmm, Does anyone here know of any other userspace automounting software?12:16
williamsomething that my be modifying fstab?12:16
csc__please help me with usb-creator. i am formatting an usb disc in various way, but NO parition is recosgnized by usb-creator? what am i doing weong? in the first case i made a 250GB partition with fat32, bootable, in a second case a smaller one, in the third case I used an ext partition NONE is recognized by usb-creator. i am stuck. as last case i plugged in an old small usb stick and it was recognized immediatly. please help12:16
PSiL0here is my fstab entry: /dev/sda5    /media/Documents ntfs-3g rw,nosuid,nodev,uid=1000,uhelper=hal,locale=en_US.UTF-8   0 012:17
thomasbonjour !!!12:17
williamPSiL0, that fstab entry looks fine. I am pretty certain that whatever is removing or modifying it must be some kind of automount software12:17
PSiL0now it is automounting my ntfs partition12:17
PSiL0this one worked fine for awhile: /dev/sda5       /media/Documents        ntfs-3g    defaults,gid=4,noatime   0       012:18
PSiL0then suddenly no beans12:18
PSiL0william: the funny thing is that when this entry doesn't automount the ntfs partition, I go check it and I see nothing is altered...12:19
williamPSiL0, you wish to mount automatically at boot correct?12:19
PSiL0william: yup12:20
johann-pierreWhat does mark shuttleworth actually have to do with this operating system?12:20
geniijohann-pierre: His company Canonical basically sponsors it12:20
johann-pierreso its sponsorred?12:21
williammaybe your system is trying to mount your nfs before you network connection is up?12:21
dwidmannjohann-pierre: paid developers &c12:21
stdinjohann-pierre: canonical pay for developers and hosting for LoCo's and free CD's via shipit12:21
johann-pierreaaah ok12:22
geniijohann-pierre: How else did you think they could mail you cd's ? ;)12:22
stdinoh, and sponsoring non-paid devs to go to development summits12:22
williamjohann-pierre, I don't actually use nfs but I would suggest you find exactly which part of the sytem is responsible for mounting your nfs and when.12:22
* genii steals one of stdin's Google burritos12:22
PSiL0william: true, but wouldn't that negate the automount action from the getgo?  Anyways, I usually run through two diff connections from my uni and my apt.  Yet, I never seen any automount failures when booting between two different locations12:23
williamI am currious about the uhelper=hal option in  there12:23
PSiL0william: I mean, I can re-edit the fstab entry to get my drive to automount again if the current settings are suddenly no good here on my laptop12:24
williamdoes that mean that hal managers your nfs mount?12:24
williamif hal managers your nfs then maybe you should add the option noauto in there to stop the system trying to mount at boot?12:24
PSiL0william: Most likely since I see that entry in syslogs whenever I manually mount my drive through dolphin12:24
williamoh, that is why it's in there12:25

PSiL0william: If I add noauto, doesn't that defeat the purpose of having that entry in fstab in the first place?12:25
williammaybe uhelper is implies noauto12:25
williamPSiL0, yeah it does12:25
johann-pierregenii: I thought that perhaps its an in-house commercial distribution12:25
williamPSiL0, could you try booting without the uhelper=hal option to see what happens?12:26
PSiL0william: well, when "defaults" was in that entry (with uhelper=hal omitted), my drive automounted for awhile12:26
williamtry it because I think that if you specify uhelper it implies noauto12:27
PSiL0when that flubbed after working for several days, I looked at syslogs to see what options were being enacted when manually mounting this drive12:27
williamie uhelper means that the system is not automounting because it thinks you want a userspace help to handle the mounting instead12:27
PSiL0hmm... maybe you are right, then again I have this option in fstab, rebooted, and my drive automounted just fine12:28

dmmainouhi guys I'm new using linux in general. could someone please help mi with a basic q about gksudo scripting12:35
stdindmmainou: seeing as gksudo is Gtk/Gnome, you should ask in #ubuntu or #ubuntu-offtopic12:36
nascentmindjussi01: k the conclusion is using ati drivers decreases performance :)12:36
dmmainouI'm running kubuntu... maybe Im not using the right command12:37
stdindmmainou: Kubuntu uses "kdesudo"12:37
nascentminddoes installing pre - released updates harmful?12:37
dmmainouok....that explains a couple of things....12:37
stdinyou can install and use gksudo (from the gksu package), it just won't look very nice12:38
dwidmannack, :( That explains a thing or two ... X is using 80% CPU12:38
geniistdin: Interestingly gksudo doesn't work in Konsole and kdesudo doesn't work in Terminal12:39
dmmainouone last q .  I have a network drive that becomes available only after the Wlan is on. since it doesnt work as a reular ip drive (works on mac address) I need to wait and manually mount it. I am trying to create a  script so my wife can click on an icon and mount it ... is there any way to avoid the password?12:39

ubottunick__: You want to connect via dial-up? Read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DialupModemHowto15:09
aitdnick__ Have you tried to boot the computer to an earlier kernal from the boot up screen list? I have used that method to check for such things in the past.15:09
nick__aitd:  no I guess I should do that, but I'm unsure what version I need to select15:09
nick__aitd: I'm getting my drivers from here: http://groups.google.com/group/ubuntu-modems/web/modem-driver-downloads-for-536ep15:10
aitdnick__: I would just start by backing off one at a time until the modem problem resolves. I have also used this method by starting at the oldest known kernel version first.15:11
ghostcubeaitd, hmm it worked at one time noe it just crashes at startup15:12
ghostcubeand seems to be a phonon problem15:12
ghostcubeit came with an update15:12
nick__aitd: but which of the three availible packages should I have installed before I start that troubleshooting process? with the current package that I have installed from that site (release 1) there appears to be no valid kernel module installed for the 536ep, or at least I cant identify it (modprobe -l returns no results for 536)15:12

aitdnick__: The last unit I worked with modem issues had *.16 kernel version as I recall. I double checked the driver download md5sum and then reinstalled it. Worked after that.15:18
nick__aitd: because with the current page that I have isntalled which is supped to be for 2.6.22 + "newer" kernels, I get the folowing output, so there appears to be no driver to try15:18
nick__nick@Bonfield1:~$ sudo modprobe -l | grep 53615:18
nick__aitd: hm ok ill double check that as well then15:18
aitdvili: Have you reviewed your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file? It will list the resolutions. I usually end up manually editing them.15:25

hyper_chrather a script kiddy when using aircrack17:22
ghostcubehmm so what security do u use if u have wpa2-psk or wpa-psk its very hard to get aircrack to hack the key17:23
Eternal_Sinwpa-psk not so much, but wpa2 is insane xD17:23
xp-killerEternal_Sin: the only coke u try was in a red can :p17:24

D3f0user datagram protocol17:29
Eternal_Sinmy english sucks so... i don't understand your question xD17:29
xp-killerEternal_Sin: lol what udp stands for?17:29
Eternal_Sinyou mean something like "for what is used the udp port"?17:30

D3f0i'd bet he said, "anyone speaks german here"17:32
xp-killerTm_T: whats the use of the udp port?17:32
D3f0udp port is too very important :)17:32
D3f0if you want to get high download rates17:32
xp-killeri tink i mean upload download port.i have no idea what i said17:33
D3f0tcp is generally used for control and handshake17:35
D3f0udp is lighter, much more lighter17:35
Eternal_Sinudp port is like tcp, but tcp checks if the data is correctly send/received and udp only checks if the data is correctly received, but not sent17:35
Eternal_Sinthats why p2p applications uses udp for file sharing17:36
hyper_chxp-killer: http://www.letmegooglethatforyou.com/?q=udp17:36
D3f0udp donesn't check if the data is correctly received, it has no checksum17:36
D3f0it relies on IP for correctness17:36
Eternal_Sinin that case my tpc/udp ports tutorial sucks xD17:36
D3f0anyway, UDP means fast transfers in p2p17:36
D3f0behind a router it might be a little tricky to get udp working17:37
Eternal_Sinthats why udp is faster than tcp17:37
D3f0yes, tcp only p2p mans slow transfers17:38
Eternal_Sinhere is a tutorial about tcp/upd ports/protocol, is in spanish xD17:38

nighty_D3f0: never18:11
nighty_i only used gentoo-sources by hand18:12
nighty_its not that big problem but this card takes me crazy18:12
D3f0so I assume, you've checked all menuconfig options fot that chipset18:12
nighty_i found pvr18:13
p_quarlesarezey: then I reckon something's broken; that's where it's supposed to be18:13
D3f0thre's been some v4l patches in 2.6.2818:14
nighty_its a diffrent card, but i read somewhere that it should be compatible18:14
nighty_maybe i should build the kernel by hand18:14
D3f0I would18:14
Eternal_Sinhi again xD18:16
Eternal_SinI really hate ati drivers!!!18:16
D3f0i really hate nvidia ones18:16

SiVA_when I run adept, I don't see any "games" section18:55
djdarkmanpkodon: look in ~/.wine18:55
SiVA_is it because the system hasn't connected to the internet yet? I just installed from CDROm18:56

pkodondjdarkman: Well, that's an interesting entry. Garbage, eh? BTW, I have the Anthology CD, not just chapter 1.19:08

maxmahemargh, can somebody help me troubleshoot my sound? I can't seem to get it working.20:02
ubottuIf you're having problems with sound, first ensure ARTS is running, by going to K Menu -> System Settings -> Sound System and making sure "Enable the sound system" is checked. If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP320:02
ActionParsnipmaxmahem: if that doesnt help, run lspci in a konsole and websearch the line that relates to your sound20:02

SiVA_I plugged in this dlink wireless access point to my laptop's lan. But when I go to the default IP for the ap it doesn't work20:06
ActionParsnipSiVA_: with a patch cable?20:06
SiVA_anything special about linux that would prevent me from connecting to this access point?20:06
denis__has anybody ever recorded DV-tapes by firewire?20:07
SiVA_denis__ made various attempts, with limited success20:07
ActionParsnipSiVA_: ok, does it work ok if you run: sudo /etc/init/d/networking restart20:07
ActionParsnipSiVA_: then run ifconfig eth020:08
ActionParsnipSiVA_: what ip do you have (this is safe to divulge as its an internal ip)20:08
SiVA_my laptop is connecting to my server via wifi. I want to configure this AP through my LAN on my laptop. It says to go to, but that doesn't work20:08
denis__SIVA did you use kdenlive?20:08
SiVA_so do you still want me to restart networking on my laptop?20:08
SiVA_denis__ no, I installed 8.1020:08
ActionParsnipSiVA_: yeah restart the networking20:09
denis__SIVA and which programm did you use? I also have 8.1020:09
ActionParsnipSiVA_: then give us the ip that eth0 gets as you are using wired lan20:09
SiVA_actionparsnip: No ip on eth020:10
ActionParsnipSiVA_: are the lights next to the wired connection flashing as well as on the routers interface20:10
SiVA_on the AP the LAN light is solid green and WLAN is flashing20:10
ActionParsnipSiVA_: to show activity20:10
ActionParsnipSiVA_: I thought you were using a wired connection?20:10
SiVA_the orange light on my laptop lan port is solid, but the other one isn't doing anything20:11
ActionParsnipok thats fine20:11
ActionParsnipSiVA_: try: sudo ifup eth020:11
ActionParsnipSiVA_: then ifconfig eth020:11
ActionParsnipSiVA_: any ip address?20:12
SiVA_Ignoring unknown interface eth0=eth020:12
ActionParsnipSiVA_: can you pastebin your ifconfig output20:12
ActionParsnip!paste | SiVA_20:12
ubottuSiVA_: pastebin is a service to post large texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu.com (be sure to give the URL of your paste - see also the #kubuntu channel topic)20:12
ActionParsnipSiVA_: can you also pastebin /etc/network/interfaces (feel free to obscure security settings)20:14

SiVA_ActionParsnip: You mean "cat /et/network/interfaces" ?20:16
ActionParsnipSiVA_: sure20:16
SiVA_ActionParsnip: I'm just trying to connect to the AP to configure it's wireless settings so it can connect to my network20:17
ActionParsnipSiVA_: if you run: route20:19
ActionParsnipSiVA_: the line marked default will be your default gateway ip and therefore your routers internal ip20:19
ActionParsnipSiVA_: route | grep UG  ;)20:20
ActionParsnipSiVA_: then thats the ip to connect to to configure it: firefox & 2>/dev/null20:21
SiVA_I'm looking at the servers router and I see there are three wireless devices connected. I know 2 of them are laptops. Not sure what the other one is. On the dhcp server, how can I tell what IPs are currently being served up?20:22
ActionParsnipSiVA_: varies from router to router, you'll have to rtfm20:22
SiVA_192.168.0.1 is my router... I'm trying to configure a different device... a wireless ACCESS Point20:22
ActionParsnipSiVA_: then its offtopic as its not an ubuntu support question20:22
SiVA_ActionParsnip: I'm using a linux machine for the dhcp server... can I see what devices are connected?20:22
SiVA_oh ok20:23
ActionParsnipif you are using an ubuntu system AS an accesspoint thats different20:23

LillymonI'm trying to fix various problems on Kubuntu, and I'm on to KNetworkManager now. It can't see my router on my ethernet port, despite being able to see the same router through a wireless connection. How do I go about figuring out why it can't see the wired connection?20:55
ubottuThe Neon Project provides daily Amarok and KDE 4 trunk builds as packages for Kubuntu | See http://amarok.kde.org/wiki/User:Apachelogger/Project_Neon and http://amarok.kde.org/wiki/User:Apachelogger/Project_Neon/KDE/Info for more | Support in #amarok.neon20:56
pkodonOkay, I ended up uninstalling Wine, now I have a question about Apt. If I go to reinstall Wine, and I look at the details, it says there are conflicts if I install it. Do I need to worry about those?20:56
pkodonI've seen these conflict lines in Apt before.20:56
LillymonOh yes, forgot to mention this is on Hardy, using KDE 3.5.10. The same router is visible through the wired connection on a Kubuntu 8.10 desktop CD.20:57
pkodonErm, not Apt, Adept.20:57
LillymonIt's as if it isn't even plugged in, but I've checked that, and it working on the desktop CD rules out a hardware problem. This happened after a reboot after being online for a long period, one of the many updates that applied during that time must have screwed up KNetworkManager.20:58
Aisonhello, I added a 2nd screen to my PC. with nvidia settings it was easy to enable twinview20:59

maxmahemLillymon: I am stupid, is there an easy way to restart x while leaving kde (kwin kdm or whatever) running?21:08
Lillymonmaxmahem: No, but IRC is purely text-based and networking is independent of X. Neither requires a window manager to be running. So I use Irssi + Screen. Ctrl+A+D = Detatched session.21:11
maxmahemLillymon: so if I'm using konversation, no joy then?21:12

crimsunwhich configuration?21:22
maxmahemcrimsun: 5.1 Oh, and thanks for your help earler, turns out it was an id10t error, speaker cable was unplugged.21:22
pkodonI'm trying to reinstall Wine, and when I look at the "details", among the other things there are a lot of conflicts there.21:23
crimsunmaxmahem: tell amarok to use plug:surround51 for the alsa virtual device, then21:23
maxmahemcrimsun: hmm... that doesn't seem to work, I have amarock set to asla, and 5.1, and all the output options show plug:surround51, but still only stero sound from a stero source.21:30

pkodonOkay, try again. In Adept Manager, if there is a conflict, what happens when I install the software?21:45
