I have googled and found http://geekybits.blogspot.com/2007/10/microphones-and-skype-on-ubuntu-710.html and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Skype.

sethI cannot boot to anything the door does upon it just will not boot anything01:01

faileasSlart: maybe try forcing it to vesa or vga at grub with cheatcodes?01:08
faileaslepassive: what kinda files?01:08
mattbdChungwa: Basically you need the stuff they ask for as dependencies to compile it. Maybe there's a deb package somewhere though01:09
lepassiveaviS01:09
JonathanEllisChungwa: This is the same as installing using the graphical interface in |Applications|Add/Remove or using Synaptic if you know the package name. But this only works if the package is in a repository that is enabled in your ubuntu01:09
ActionParsnipseth: if you get your whole system updated it may help01:09

* faileas might suggest photorec, and possibly roadkil's file recovery if he has a linux box01:09

skoozwell how do u get to it01:41
ChungwaOh, I've got another question! Since I moved to ubuntu whenever I watch a video (avi divx) there are very slight lines (or is it pixelization?)on the video. Any idea how to make it look a little better (the video looking fine when I viewed it in Vista before my switch)01:41
wj32Chungwa: turn deinterlacing off01:41
usr13ethan2: And see if you can find a way to get it to conect to the particular essid of your wireless AP.01:41
skoozi can load ubuntu01:41
ChungwaHow do I do that? (I'm a COMPLETE newbie)01:41
ActionParsnipChungwa: have you installed video drivers and got codecs installed01:42
wj32Chungwa: oh wait you can't do that anymore01:42
ActionParsnipskooz: boot to linux, then run gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf01:42
wj32i swear you could turn deinterlacing on/off in totem before01:42
ChungwaActionParsnip: I did, yes. I choose the recommended drivers and downloaded some codecs for divx01:42

wj32Chungwa: you'll need deinterlacing on for most DVDs01:47

usr13johninlex: Just state your problem.  Someone is bound to know what to do about it.01:49
webbhawk_h4x0r42if there was a trojan or possible key capture program.. i would be safe using ubuntu live cd01:49
usr13what wifi nic is it?01:49
Gneamib_2dc6mp: well, I just found a few things that might help - they're a bit more up-to-date01:49
wj32webbhawk_h4x0r42: Windows programs don't run on Ubuntu01:49
ActionParsnipwebbhawk_h4x0r42: makes sense, if you boot to live cd, you can mount the windows drive and read the data01:49
wj32webbhawk_h4x0r42: Viruses, trojans, and spyware are windows programs01:50
mib_2dc6mpGnea that is excellent01:50
vileli8vesJordan_U figured it out. I needed to switch to gecko to get things working. mplayer just hates my system, I guess. thanks anyway!01:50

ActionParsnipwebbhawk_h4x0r42: the windows keylogger will not run as windows is not running, its linux01:50
wj32webbhawk_h4x0r42: Again, no black magic01:50
webbhawk_h4x0r42wj32:  so i thought right.. it would be much safer this way01:50
Gneamib_2dc6mp: still looking through it - looks like all you probably need to do is download and compile the firmware01:50

Dexihey guys i got about 4 lines of terminal i need help with, pastebin?02:08

ac3_0f_spad3smattbd can i install ubuntu on top of freeBSD?02:08
Jack_SparrowDexi, Pastebin. not in channel02:08
mattbdac3_0f_spad3s: If you want something unhackable OpenBSD is the way to go02:08
rwweseven73: perhaps ask for help in #archlinux on this server ?02:08
wfoster_wj32: rww: Remember me? From last night? Well, I went out and bought a Macbook today. No need to worry about that pesky sudo situation anymore.02:08
Gneaebaby: depending on what you put in it, perhaps02:08

Dexihttp://pastebin.com/m1a7258d802:08
mattbdac3_0f_spad3s: No, it's a completely different operating system02:08
mib_2dc6mpGnea that didnt work: dpkg needs an action option, do we need that && cat thing02:09
Jordan_UActionParsnip: And the keyboard :)02:09
mattbdActionParsnip: lol!02:09
Gneamib_2dc6mp: yeah02:09
ActionParsnipmattbd: any system with internet connectivity has some chance of being hacked02:09
chilli0its im possable to get hacked w\o intenet thats why i recomend tesltra02:09

linduxedmight also be 30W but i highly doubt it02:10
ac3_0f_spad3smattbd this is why im asking for something minimal. i would like something i can run ubuntu from02:10
wfoster_rww: Leopard OS X uses sudo? Well, at least it won't corrupt all the time like Wubi.02:10
mattbdActionParsnip: Yeah I know but OpenBSD is about as close to unhackable as anything you can find02:10
linduxedrww: thx02:10
wj32ebaby: i guess so, but didn't you have problems with graphics?02:10
wfoster_Is there a Apple or Mac channel?02:10
mattbdac3_0f_spad3s: So you want to be able to set up a minimal Linux system?02:10
mib_2dc6mpGnea what comes after the >02:10
Jack_Sparrowwfoster_, If you understood what wubi is and does you would not have used it int he first place02:10

mib_2dc6mpGnea would it be libasound.2.0.0.txt02:11
mattbdac3_0f_spad3s: Sure02:11
ebabywj32: yeah all is well during the install ( i can even use firefox on web) but after install/reboot there is no display.02:11
Jordan_Uwfoster_: Yes, ##mac02:11
Gneamib_2dc6mp: well > is the output directive, so go ahead and make up a filename to put the infomration into - it can be anything you want it to be02:11
wfoster_Jack_Sparrow: What does it do then?02:11
Jack_Sparrow!wubi02:11

Jack_Sparrowwfoster_, read the faq.  I wont use nor would I ever recommend it02:11

Shadow_Xisn't there an app that will allow me to use a VNC client on another computer to connect to my server and login to a brand new X session?02:12
Dexiwj32: ok i worked it into the right dir, now im getting this: http://pastebin.com/m16f3177002:12
rwwwj32: ask in #freenode02:12
ActionParsnipShadow_X: you can connect to servername:2 and it will load another x server02:13
ebabywj32: which I am assuming is wht my problem is... I tried it via root and got the message "(gedit:4379) : Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display"02:13
mib_2dc6mpGnea, I hope I did this right, /f7278fe9d02:13
wj32Dexi: why are you using sudo for make?02:14
Shadow_XActionParsnip: to i need to do any specific config on the server aside from allowing remote X?02:14
eseven73!gksu | ebaby02:14
ubottuebaby: If you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)02:14
wj32Dexi: just run make02:14
Dexiwj32: it said permission denied when i didnt02:14
waykaathiya02:14
wj32Dexi: that's weird. make should only compile the prog, not install it02:14
Gneamib_2dc6mp: looks good :)02:14
mib_2dc6mpGnea when I try it with dpkg -l it says no package found matching /usr/lib/libasound.so.2.0.002:15
Dexiwj32: its a weird thing its got going on... install directions told me to edit the first line of the makefile to my plugins dir and then type make, without ./configure first02:15
ActionParsnipShadow_X: nope, i think it just gets spawned, try websearching vnc to headless pc02:15
rwwDexi: which program?02:15
Dexirww "sessionsave" plugin for pidgin02:15
Shadow_XActionParsnip: thanks bro02:16
rww!vnc | Shadow_X: you mean a VNC server?02:16
ubottuShadow_X: you mean a VNC server?: VNC is a protocol for remote desktop. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH describes how to use it securely.  It works best over fast connections, otherwise look at !FreeNX02:16
Gneamib_2dc6mp: right, if you type: dpkg --help  you will see that -l and -S do 2 different things. so, it looks like your alsa libraries are in place - there's no need to worry about them, it's the firmware that's the problem02:16
Shadow_X!FreeNX02:16
ubottuFreeNX is advanced remote desktop technology. For more information and install instructions, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FreeNX02:16
Shadow_X?02:16
ebabyeseven73: not sure what !gksu means as I am green02:16
mib_2dc6mpok02:16
rwwDexi: Ah. Yeah, it doesn't surprise me that plugins are weird.02:16
eseven73ebaby: it's a better method of using graphical apps as root02:17
wj32eseven73: he can't get his display working02:17
mib_2dc6mpGnea so I am guessing ubuntustudio either came with all the alsa, or when I downloaded it from synaptic it installed everything (though I never downloaded alsa-libs)02:17
Dexirww, i think i can make it work if i just copy the file, whats the terminal command to copy something from home/whatever to /usr/local/lib/purple-202:17
ActionParsnipShadow_X: http://forums.teamphoenixrising.net/showthread.php?t=3232502:17
rwwDexi: cp /home/whatever/filename /usr/local/lib/purple-202:17
Gneamib_2dc6mp: so let's concentrate on that:   find /lib/firmware/ -name "mia_dsp*" > mialist.txt && cat mialist | pastebinit02:17
rwwDexi: possibly with a sudo in front of it; and if it's a directory, do cp -R02:17
mib_2dc6mpGnea ok lemme do that02:18
Gneamib_2dc6mp: there is no alsa-libs in ubuntu, it's called libasound202:18
Dexirww ok, i think last time i did it wrong because it moved the whole dir but i didnt say -R idk ill go try02:18

sudobashhttp://downloads.sourceforge.net/linux-ntfs/ntfsprogs-2.0.0.tar.gz?modtime=1190969237&big_mirror=102:22
Jack_Sparrowshear, that is characteristic of an unclean mount or fsck detecting issues with the device02:23

shearJack_Sparrow, I did run fsck, and posted the result in that thread02:23
mib_2dc6mpGnea am i supposed to take the -name out02:23
shearJack_Sparrow, do you know how to fix it?02:23
sudobashahhhh ntfsresize -fi /dev/hdXY02:24
Gneamib_2dc6mp: well, you're looking for anything that -starts- with the mib_dsp, so it needs to be "mia_dsp*"02:24
Jack_Sparrow!fsck02:24
ubottufsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo shutdown -F -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot02:24
rwwsudobash: "ntfsprogs" is a collection of programs for managing the ntfs file system, and is available as an Ubuntu package anyway. ntfsck doesn't exist yet, but will eventually; in the meantime, install ntfsprogs and run the command on that page02:24
rww!info ntfsprogs02:24
ubottuntfsprogs (source: linux-ntfs): tools for doing neat things in NTFS partitions from Linux. In component main, is optional. Version 2.0.0-1ubuntu2 (intrepid), package size 262 kB, installed size 672 kB02:24
sudobashso ntfsprogs is obsolete but ntfsck is not ready yet?02:24
mib_2dc6mpGnea I added the * but I still get a keyboard interrupt02:25
Jack_Sparrowshear, for the best answers pastebin the output, dont make people search through a thread looking for it02:25
sudobashPackage ntfsprogs is not available, but is referred to by another package.02:25
Gneamib_2dc6mp: hrm, try it like this then:  find /lib/firmware/ -name "mia_dsp*"02:25
rwwsudobash: what version of Ubuntu are you using?02:25
sudobashwait my install must not be up to date cause it worked in california02:26

mib_2dc6mpGnea find /lib/firmware/ -name "mia_dsp*"  nothing happens02:31
rwwsudobash: the only reason to put yourself through the torture of ntfs is if you have windows. if you have windows, reboot into windows and then ask in ##windows for help.02:31
Gneamib_2dc6mp: okay, and I just tried it too like that - the "KeyboardInterrupt caught." means that pastebinit won't send an empty file02:32

RukusXthe_squircle, i dont even think i have any that are not03:20
the_squircleRukusX: is the USB device directly plugged into the port?03:20
Gneamib_2dc6mp: okay, let's give this a go: cd alsa-firmware-1.0.17/ && ./configure && make03:20
wfosteraiuw: Keep one off, while you do the other? :P03:20

wfosteraiuw: Anyone else will be happy to help you though.03:22
Gneaaiuw: what soundcard do you have?03:22
jimmy0i7help!! sound stopped working !!03:22
the_squircleRukusX: now... you're sure that both the device and the port is USB 2.0? If they both are... maybe it's the driver that Ubuntu is using for your motherboard and they're running at 1.1 speeds. That's all I can think of03:22
jp_sfRukusX: Try to add "pci=noacpi pci=routeirq" at the grub boot options03:22
aiuwGnea, good question. What command do I need to issue to see it?03:22
Gneaaiuw: lspci | grep audio03:23
wfosterjimmy0i7: Give us some more details, what do you mean it has gone. You can't hear any at all? Can you still hear the login noise?03:23
Gnea!sound | jimmy0i703:23
ubottujimmy0i7: If you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer). If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP303:23

Gneaaiuw: that on a laptop?03:24
mib_2dc6mpGnea it doesnt like alsa-firmware-1.0.17/03:24
RukusXjp_sf, i added the pci=routeirq maybe i will try that noacpi.  What is peculiar, my speeds are quick, at least 3.7mbps until it seem the disk cache gets filled. then slows right down 1.1mbps03:24

the_squirclejimmy0i7: try running a fsck, make sure nothing got hurt on the Linux partition after removing the windows partition, maybe the sound driver's sector got damaged or something...03:24
Gneaaiuw: see if you can find it there - you may need to turn pulseaudio off03:24
aiuwOk03:24
wfosterjimmy0i7: Do you have pulseaudio installed? If so go to 'Terminal' then type 'pavucontrol'.03:25
jimmy0i7the_squircle, how do i run fsck ?03:25
RukusXthe_squircle, thanks for the help, but how would i change the driver? is that not part of my kernel? i've booted my last 3 to see if any difference and none03:25
wfosterjimmy0i7: Terminal > type 'pavucontrol' > Output Devices > Tell me if it says anything.03:25
Flanneljimmy0i7: The easiest way is to `sudo touch /forcefsck` then reboot03:25
jp_sfRukusX: 3.7 I think it is slow a usb 2.0 should be more than 10MB/s03:25

dr_willisDJCanadianJeff,  CAREFULL use of the 'dd' command :)03:29

dr_willisDJCanadianJeff,  therrs also specic 'disk zero' and 'disk wipe' commands/tools out there.03:29
Logikosin windows if i press and hold ALT while typeing out a 4 digit ascii code such as 0044 ... it will output the ascii chr 44 which is a , if i remember right ... is there a similar feature in ubuntu?03:29
mib_2dc6mpGnea done03:29
DJCanadianJeffdd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hda    ???03:29
Logikosor i guess it would be a feature with gnome03:30
dr_willisDJCanadianJeff,  writing all 0's is NOT the same as a 'low level format' its just zeroing out the drive03:30
Gneamib_2dc6mp: now, try this:  sudo modprobe snd_mia03:30
GneaDJCanadianJeff: yes, that will do it.03:30
dr_willisDJCanadianJeff,  thats the basics of it.. you may want to use a BS size option.. be care full with that command and /dev/hda may NOT be right.. ubuntu normally uses sd##03:30
yuwizm03:30
mib_2dc6mpGnea I did it, but nothing seemed to happen03:31

Jack_SparrowAlex_21, run the installer on any box up to the partitioner and you will see what we are talking about.  It will offer to automatically shrink windows and install ubuntu in dual boot03:55

the_squircleliquid: it'd be better to fix the ubuntu driver... what's wrong with it?03:58
n8tuserkazagistar-> once the iso is loop mounted, then you can copy the contents of it like any other files or directory03:58

Jordan_U^Manu, X should use the intel driver if it's available, you can also force it to use it by adding an explicit line to your xorg.conf but you shouldn't need to04:48
Hbah427jp_sf: I do not.04:48
evowill<^Manu> I will send you a PM04:48
Hbah427It won't work no matter what.04:48

Gnea!ask | sandeep04:50
Hbah427It's a PCI card btw04:50
ubottusandeep: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)04:50
Hbah427I should probably check syslog...04:50
nbeebohow do i do so the sound i hear on my desktop goes into the microphone without having one?  ------ if u understand what im saying but dont know the answer can u help me rephrase? i suck at it lol04:50

Gainok last question, are there threads to show people's desktops. I am looking for some ideas on customizing my own04:51
Jordan_UDigitalFiz, It's how you get to the actual settings for the card rather than the pulseaudio volume controll04:51
mib_2dc6mpGnea just more mixers and meters04:51
Gneamib_2dc6mp: i see that, and that's what's strange. I've never seen 'monitor' so many times like that.04:52

ebabyjp_sf: i assume you mean type sar into terminal to get the info I need?05:11
raylujp_sf: you use abiword lotus?05:11
caimlasOn intrepid my laptop gets very unresponsive (think: like when copying to a floppy disk in Windows) when I've got any sort of disk i/o load. does anyone here know anything about the i/o scheduler used by default or some way to give the UI and desktop applications i/o preference (as was more of a default back in older kernel versions, it seems)?05:12

amuroPriceChild, on my desktop, i killall pulseaudio then all my sounds work happily together05:17
Gneaamuro: by default, it does not. sadly, ubuntu does not do a decent job of setting pulseaudio up the way that some other distros do. it is a problem that we're trying to address.05:17

exodus_ms#apache05:21
eseven73well i dont thin it sucks i think its what Gnea was saying a bit ago about its more an issue of how ubuntu sets it up than anything else05:21

sheena1updated recently to Intrepid. was using Hardy before. youtube videos now play the first 2 seconds, then quit/freeze. I can jump the video ahead (clicking on the play bar) and it will play about 2 seconds from that point and do the same.05:23
mib_2dc6mpfor some reason I am only getting one chanel to work my left speaker is not doing anything05:23
MenZamib_2dc6mp: It might seem a little obvious, but is the volume on the left channel muted or turned down?05:25
ebabyjp_sf: as weird as it sounds that would almost be easier to deal with than having a picture perfect install only to reboot to the Twilight zone on your screen - so I assume failed to fetch means that the machine cant access the net or the files are no longer at that location?05:25
eseven73is there a way to get irssi to show the channel without having to re enter the channel?05:25

ov3rfl0wIt's not that. I have one file open, but It's gone of my screen.05:27
MenZaZombie_Gaz: As I said before - is this your LAN IP, or is it your broadcast public IP?05:27
tristanmikeI just would like to get my surround sound working on a fresh install of 8.10 on a SoundBlaster 5.1. I don't understand PulseAudio05:27
sheena1amuro: youtube videos now play the first 2 seconds, then quit/freeze. I can jump the video ahead (clicking on the play bar) and it will play about 2 seconds from that point and do the same.05:27
mikehey does any one know where to get music for music player05:27
eseven73Flannel: thanks thats what i was trying to get at05:27
Zombie_Gazpublic ip... i'm trying for.05:27
ov3rfl0wAnd I didn't no how come back.05:27
amurosheena1, check your flash version05:27
MenZamike: http://creativecommons.org holds a lot of freely-licensed music.05:27
amurosheena1, the newest is version 1005:27
mikethanks05:27
MenZamike: Another source is your local music shop. :)05:27
Zombie_Gazbut both i suppose. all i can get to work is localhost / 127.0.0.105:27
Flanneleseven73: Look into the "usercount" plugin05:28
mib_2dc6mpGnea I wonder if it is something in that clunky alsamixer05:28
MenZamike: You could also check the Magnatune store integration in Amarok and Rhythmbox, or the Jamendo store.05:28
Gneamib_2dc6mp: check your preferences in the audio tab, make sure the output driver is set accordingly05:28
sheena1amuro, i'm checking now.05:28
jp_sfZombie_Gaz: you need to specify the IP for the server to accept connection05:28
eseven73Flannel: ok ty05:28
mikeare they free05:28
Zombie_Gazjp_sf: go on...05:28
the_dark_warrioWhat is the variable which keeps locations for libraries? It seems the variable got changed, since no lib is found on /usr/local/lib anymore...05:28
MenZamike: No, they require you to purchase the music.05:28
mikeok good05:28
mikethanks05:28
jp_sfZombie_Gaz it is called port ip binding05:28
illmortalAnyone know how to obtain gparted? Synaptic Package Manager doesn't have it on list.05:28
tom1122I'm running eeeXubuntu. After a screwy update a week ago, I no longer have any wireless capable devices apparently. iwconfig and modprobe can't find anything, and i install linux-backports-modules to no avail. What went wrong?I'm running eeeXubuntu. After a screwy update a week ago, I no longer have any wireless capable devices apparently. iwconfig and modprobe can't find anything, and i install linux-backports-modules to no05:28
tom1122 avail. What went wrong?05:28
jinja-sheepWhere do theme packages usually store the themes in?05:28
tom1122^ Shite, sorry.05:28
MenZaillmortal: sudo apt-get install gparted. It should be in Synaptic, though.05:29
jp_sfZombie_Gaz: vi /etc/apache2/ports.conf05:29
Mayankwhy my firefox closes itself...?, any random time..05:29
sheena1amuro: add remove tells me it's downloading from version 9 link. should i go to the adobe homepage?05:29
nickrudthe_dark_warrio, try running ldconfig , that rebuilds lib relationships. See /etc/ld.so.conf*05:29
illmortalMenZa, I think I have to add new repos or something in Synaptic <,<05:29
amurosheena1, yes goto adobe page05:29
matiHi guys..do you know how to set up ubuntu as IDS ?05:29
MenZaillmortal: Doh. It's installed by default.05:29
jp_sfZombie_Gaz: and then Listen x.x.x.x:80 as an example x are your IP right ?05:29
amurosheena1, the one in ubuntu repos is old05:29
ebabyjp_sf: final message is "could not resolve 'us.archive.ubuntu.com'05:29
illmortalah05:29
the_dark_warrionickrud: thanks, I will take a look05:30
MenZaillmortal: System → Administration → Partition Editor - my bad.05:30
amurosheena1, get the .deb file from adobe homepage05:30
Zombie_Gazjp_sf: ok... so this is my REAL ip not my local ip (ie: 192.168.x)05:30
sheena1amuro: it's going now. that should fix the problem?05:30
jp_sfZombie_Gaz: depends... too late05:30
illmortalnp got it :P05:30
the_dark_warrionickrud: Thanks ;) that did the trick05:30
MenZaillmortal: I'm not... completely sure it's installed by standard. In any case, if it isn't, it can be installed with `sudo apt-get install gparted` and run from the menu I described before.05:30
amurosheena1, maybe05:31
sheena1amuro: do i need to uninstall the old one or anything? does it do all that on its own?05:31
amurosheena1, i cant garantee05:31
LawnGnome1Ok, back,,sorta...any fixes for SeaMonkey in the works?05:31
ebabyjp_sf: it seems it was unable to get all that it needed as 40.8kb of archives were needed and it gave that error mssg05:31
amurosheena1, yes u have to completely remove the old one first05:31
amurosheena1, there is a tutorial how on the internet05:31
eseven73Mayank: what sort of extensions are you running? that would be my first guess, you could try to backup your .mozilla folder and delete it, and rerun firefox to see if that helps, but please back it up before you do this!05:31
sheena1amuro: can you link me there? i'll google it..05:31
jp_sfebaby: is the machine you are using irc ?05:31
illmortalMenZa, ya I did the apt-get install gparted and "partition editor" popped into the admin menu, so good to go :P05:31
amurosheena1, http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/linux-install-flash-player-10.html05:32
MenZaillmortal: Excellent. Be careful, though; it's a WMD.05:32

nbeebohow do i do so the sound i hear on my desktop goes into the microphone without having one?  ------ if u understand what im saying but dont know the answer can u help me rephrase?05:33
jp_sfebaby: seems it lost connection05:33
tom1122I'm running eeeXubuntu. After a screwy update a week ago, I no longer have any wireless capable devices apparently. iwconfig and modprobe can't find anything, and i install linux-backports-modules to no avail. What went wrong?05:33
eseven73Mayank: hmmm no running things in wine is not the answer... you're on 8.10 i take it?05:33
MenZanbeebo: What you'd like to know is how to mix your output channel (e.g. speakers) to work as a microphone, effectively perceiving any sound you play as a sound played into the microphone.05:34

nbeeboMenZa, yes thats correct thank you...05:34

illmortalOh MenZa, quick question.. what's Linux-Swap for?... Because I'm about to delete the partition as for some reason it's given 5gb05:35

mikegriffinillmortal: you have about 2G of RAM?05:35
MenZaillmortal: How much RAM do you have?05:35

nickrud!lamp05:37
ubottuLAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)05:37
tristanmikeflubuntu: I use MediaTomb05:37
illmortalLAMP FTW!05:38
Gneamib_2dc6mp: I've been fighting with it for months now, it's getting redundant05:38
eqnixill: you'll never need swap unless you plan on using 8+gb of ram at any given time05:38

flubuntuwith ps305:38

illmortalalright sweet :D05:38
mikegriffinamuro: that is bad advice  illmortal: you should leave swap on05:38
illmortalo.o;05:38
nickrudebaby, you should use gksu gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst05:38
tristanmikeflubuntu: if you're asking is it compatible with the PS3, yes. I stream all my music, movies and photos to it05:38
Dead1sup05:38
Dead1hi every body05:39
illmortalwell can I minimize it?... like say to 2gb of swap?05:39
mikegriffinillmortal: if you think you are swapping too much as confirmed with vmstat, you might play with systcl vm.swappiness, try 3005:39
nbeeboWhat I'd like to know is how to mix your output channel (e.g. speakers) to work as a microphone, effectively perceiving any sound you play as a sound played into the microphone.05:39

nickrudebaby, gedit only runs when the X is running, and you have a graphical desktop. You can use nano. And if you're using the recovery console, you don't need sudo because you're already root.05:44
newbie-ubuntuguys anyone here with some vmware expertise to help me out05:44
faileasZombie_Gaz: check if the ports are open05:45
fgci've been reading the forums and from what i can tell, it's because g77 is no longer supported and gfortran is however pgplot suggests f2c and other fortran compilers don't compile some code that g77 can, which is needed with pgplot05:45

eseven73Mayank: some forums are suggesting maybe java is to blame for the crashes in firefox, go here to see if your java is working (if you see a dancing logo its working) http://www.java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml05:52
fgcmikegriffin: thanks mate...i'll try to find out, i know if that is fine then all would be good...thanks very much for your time05:52
tristanmikeCan someone help me get my rear speakers working under 8.10 and a SoundBlaster 5.1. It was working fine on 8.04 before I upgraded this evening. Thanks in advance.05:53

centr0whats the log file to check any errors at reboot?05:53
caimlasmikegriffin, looks like it's [cfq] at the moment.05:53
centr0dmesg?05:53
nickrudmikegriffin, if you can track down the update that broke that, you should file a bug. Good luck :)05:53
mikegriffincaimlas: that is fine generally05:54
caimlasmikegriffin, is that the "desktop" scheduler, then.05:54
caimlas?05:54
mikegriffinnickrud: i went from gg to jj with apt :)05:54
mikegriffincaimlas: yes05:54
nickrudebaby, :)05:54
ebabynickrud: well the article describes what is/was happening to me - install goes fine graphics works but after restart no graphics so I assume that if I can use the settings that were used during install and get them to stick then I am in business. This is not my forte so any assist U can give would be a lifejacket05:54
mikegriffincaimlas: new default, old was anticipatory05:54
Paradigm_Shiftis there any update on when the nvidia driver problem will be resolved?05:54
caimlasmikegriffin, out of curiosity, you wouldn't happen to know if newer hard drives don't report dma info via hdparm?05:55
npopedid Broadcom actually come out with a driver for bcm43xx cards?  I am looking at Broadcom STA driver???05:55
npopeParadigm_Shift: what is the Nvidia problem?  Mine works fine with the latest updates???05:55
nickrudebaby, ok. I can help you add that stuff to menu.lst. You said you booted into recovery mode; you got the blue screen and selected recovery console (or words to that effect)?05:55
Mayankjava is enable in mozilla setting but in that site java is not enabled, eseven73?05:56
nickrudebaby, just want to make sure we're working from the same starting point05:56
Paradigm_Shiftnpope - I have  a 6600 that worked fine with Hardy. Now with Ibex the nvidia glx drivers fail at boot up05:56
caimlasmikegriffin, hmm that's helpful, thanks.05:56
ebabynickrud: yes it gave options of ubuntu 8.10 straight or recovery Yes05:56
caimlasmikegriffin, by old, you mean in hardy, I take?05:56
nickrudso now you have a totally text screen?05:56
ebabynickrud: yes right now i am at GNU nano 2.0.705:57
npopeParadigm_Shift: is that a known problem ?05:57
nickrudwith menu.lst open in it, I assume.05:57
Paradigm_Shiftnpope - I believe so05:57
mikegriffincaimlas: no in 2.4 kernel05:57
ebabynickrud: File: /boot/grub/menu/1st05:57
mikegriffincaimlas: you can tune it in /sys/block/sda/queue/iosched/05:57
GneaPriceChild: HRM, I can get pulseaudio to work, but sound skips.05:57
mikegriffincaimlas: look at quantum and queued05:58
eseven73!java | Mayank get the sun java...05:58
ubottuMayank get the sun java...: To install a Java runtime/interpreter on Ubuntu, look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java - For the Sun Java runtime install sun-java6-jre from the !Multiverse repository05:58
* Gnea considers skipping sound to be 'not working right'05:58
nickrudebaby, ok, look for the line # defoptions=quiet splash05:58
Gneait should be fluid and free of error, just like ALSA makes it sound.05:58
Paradigm_Shiftnpope: what confuses me is that if all was well with 8.04, why would moving forward create the problem? There are a lot of users that are impacted.05:58
spionlalais there a way to have autocomplete-on-tab (like in terminal) in the alt-f2-application-starter ?05:58
=== danny_ is now known as srvrsyde
caimlasmikegriffin, interesting. I've got a quantum (value '4') but no queued in there.05:59
mikegriffinspionlala: in gnome? it seems to wait until the command is unambig05:59
npopeParadigm_Shift: this is interesting.  I am doing some googling right now.  Have they located the problem05:59
mikegriffincaimlas: me too..05:59
ebabynickrud: yeah looke dfor it but it is not here options are (for example:) ^g Get Help ^O Write out ^R Read file etc...05:59
spionlalamikegriffin, yes in gnome, unambig huh?05:59
caimlasmikegriffin, ok, so that sounds normalish, then :P05:59
nickrudebaby, no, in the file menu.lst05:59
eseven73Mayank: i also think theres a sun-java6-plugin or something search synaptic package manager for JRE you'll see what i mean. install that as well05:59
caimlasmikegriffin, any idea what the value in quantum indicates?05:59
spionlalamikegriffin, when i push tab in there , my focus jumps to the next element inside the window06:00
mib_2dc6mpGnea thanks for working with me, I have no idea where I stand on getting things working properly, hopefully with a fresh start tomorrow I can read through the ubuntustudio wiki and make heads or tails06:00
caimlas(and where'd you figure out all this stuff from? that resource would be useful)06:00
Paradigm_Shiftnpope: I believe that the release notes mention the problem.06:00
Gneamib_2dc6mp: you're welcome. i'm going to try and get pulseaudio working tonight, might even write a HOWTO.06:00
mikegriffincaimlas: re: hdparm on sd use sginfo -I06:00

mib_2dc6mpcool06:01
Paradigm_Shiftnpope: Why there is a problem I can not say.06:01
tristanmikeI'm having a hard time with Pulse Audio06:01
ebabynickrud: thought I was there How do I get [to] there06:01
caimlasmikegriffin, even if it's an IDE (ATA) disk?06:01
mikegriffincaimlas: quantum is the number of requested placed on a dispatch queue per cycle06:01
mib_2dc6mpGnea i will look u up tomorrow06:01
Mayanki i do that eseven7306:01
mikegriffincaimlas: no use hdparm -I06:01
mikegriffincaimlas: requests*06:01
nickrudebaby, hit ctl-X , and exit nano, without saving any files06:01
Gneatristanmike: i'm trying to get pulseaudio to work right here... so far, sound just crackles (i only have a 2-speaker system at the moment)06:01
Gneamib_2dc6mp: i may or may not be here, but i'll be around06:02
mikegriffincaimlas: is this a desktop or server06:02
tristanmikeGnea: I've got 5 speakers and the sub... everything was working just fine on 8.04 but now I can't get my rear speakers to work06:02
caimlasmikegriffin, for whatever reason, the drive isn't receiving commands from hdparm (saying they're not supported)06:02
Gneatristanmike: you upgraded to 8.10?06:02
caimlasmikegriffin, it's a laptop. older thinkpad x30, IDE interface06:02
mikegriffincaimlas: you have a raid controller?06:02
tristanmikeGnea: yeah :(06:02
caimlasmikegriffin, ubuntu detected/set it up as sda, for whatever reason.06:03
ebabynickrub: ok back to root@dawoud-ubuntu-laptop:~# assuming that is wher I should be after hitting ctl-X06:03
mikegriffintry sg and see if the wrapper deals with it caimlas06:03
jinja-sheepWow! Ubuntu Support IRC!06:03
caimlasmikegriffin, sg driver isn't loaded, so... nfi why it got sda as a device name.06:03
npopeParadigm_Shift: ooo, i see.  I belive that is a problem with the proprietary drivers Nvidia provides and not actaully something Ubuntu developers can do something about06:03
tristanmikeGnea: I've had no problems since way back in Hoary.... now I can't get it to work :(06:04
mikegriffindebian did it to me back when i was checking out lenny06:04
caimlas... d'oh, sorry mikegriffin, needed to sudo06:04
nickrudebaby, yep, you exited the program :) Now, again, run  nano /boot/grub/menu.lst . Once you've done that, tell me the beginning of the first line on the screen, so I can make sure we're in the right file06:04
mikegriffincaimlas: word06:04
jinja-sheepThis is great.  I wrote a script -- for mounting / unmounting encrypted openluks -- I'm curious if one know how to bypass the sudo 'password' for the said script?06:04
mikegriffinjinja-sheep: use sudo with no password..06:04
mikegriffinfor that one command!06:04
Flanneljinja-sheep: You can modify sudoers so that particular command won't require a password.06:04
christer_can anyone maybe help me with a newbie problem? trying to get a game called egoboo to work. but i can't figure out how to edit the settings files06:04
ebabynicjrub: that is where i ended up after typing that cmd Let me try it again06:04
mikegriffinjinja-sheep: you might also put the user in the disk group06:05
rdvadeHello, Can someone explain to me what exactly exempts Ubuntu from being a completely free distro (in the eyes of the FSF). I'm Having a discussion about this issue and I'm struggling to find a solid answer on exactly which parts are non-free (on a clean install). I thought it was the trademarks or perhaps how Ubuntu facilitates the use of non free software - but I feel I'm missing something.06:05
Gneatristanmike: read this? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SurroundSound06:05
tristanmikerdvade, you should probably check off topic06:05
nickrudebaby, just being cautious. this is a critical file, gotta be sure we don't muck it up06:05
Paradigm_Shiftnpope: I realize that the nvidia drivers are proprietary. What puzzles me is that if all worked well under 8.04, if the nvidia driver did not change then the problem seems to be with 8.10.06:05
mikegriffinrdvade: www.gnewsense.org06:05
christer_when i try to save a file in etc\egoboo it says i dont have permission06:05
tristanmikeGnea: thanks, great starting point... I was looking for something like this.06:05
npopeParadigm_Shift: its not a problem.  X server is newer in 8.10 and not compatible with the Nvidia drivers06:06
nickrudchrister_, you need admin privs;  gksu gedit <file> will do that for you06:06
christer_nickrud: thanks!06:06
npopeParadigm_Shift: Nvidia needs to update their drivers to work with the new X server... I do not think they are going to do that though06:06
mikegriffinnpope: so there is no way to use nvidia binary drivers in jj atm?06:06
refeferhmm, read through grep information on ubuntu, but it didn't solve my problem.  Any ideas how to specify during the install which physical harddrive it installs on?06:06
npopejj atm?06:06
mikegriffinjaunty at the moment, sorry06:07
Paradigm_Shiftnpope: do you know what changed in x server?????06:07
spionlalawhats the name of the application that "alt-f2" starts?06:07
ebabynickrub: black screen title bar is white left says GNU nano 2.0.7 Middle says File: /boot/grub/menu.1st  cursor is blinking below and then bottom of screen has two runs of text beginning with ^G Get help endiing with ^T To spell   with many choices in between06:07
jinja-sheepFlannel + mikegriffin :  http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Disable_root_password_and_gain_su_sudo_with_no_password  -- Is that this?  The second codebox under "Editing /etc/sudoers"06:07
npopemikegriffin: not at the moment.  unless nvidia decides to update the driver.  the open source nv driver will work for most things... but unfortunatley no 3D06:08
rdvademikegriffin: thanks for taking the time06:08
tristanmikeGnea: ok, so the 5.1 test works fine06:08
nickrudebaby, what's at the very top?06:08
jinja-sheepErr, I mean the third.06:08
mikegriffinrdvade: not a problem06:08
ebabynickrub: **rows06:08
npopeParadigm_Shift: they changed a lot of things.  I can not pinpoint one specific thing that made the driver to be incompatible.06:08
mikegriffinnpope: it seems to work but even flash draws slowly :(06:08
ebabyNickrub: very top says GNU nano 2.0.706:08
nickrudebaby, let me rephrase, does the 3d line start with # menu.lst06:08
Flanneljinja-sheep: No, you want to instead specify NOPASSWD for a specific command, let me find a page06:08
mikegriffinFlannel: would the disk group not work?06:09
npopemikegriffin: :(06:09
nickrudebaby, brain fart on my part, asking for the first line.06:09
Paradigm_Shiftnpope: thanks. :)06:09
Flanneljinja-sheep: http://www.gratisoft.us/sudo/man/sudoers.html#nopasswd_and_passwd06:09
ebabynickrud: no that phrase is nowhere to be found where I am presently06:09
Flanneljinja-sheep: (That's actually from the man page)06:09
tonyyarussoI'm trying to pair a bluetooth headset with my ubuntu machine.  However, in the gnome bt preferences, only the Input service has an "Add" button for devices - Audio only has one for remove.  Any idea why?06:10
mib_2dc6mpGnea you still around?06:10
caimlasmikegriffin, can you think of anything which might cause X (with xfce) to become almost entirely unresponsive while (for instance) processing triggers during an apt-get install? by 'totally unresponsive' I mean "mouse input is lagged and jumpy to the degree of multiple seconds, keyboard input sometimes takes a good 10s to print to display, task switching appears blocked"... and maybe a way to get around it? it's infuriating an06:10
caimlasd reminds me of how windows "performs".06:10
jinja-sheepFlannel:  Lol. I resort to websites more than man pages. >_>06:10
jinja-sheepFlannel:  Will take a look at it.06:10
mikegriffincaimlas: bug in kernel with your chipset possibly, have an older one?06:10
nickrudebaby, ok then we have a problem. oh. it's menu.Lst, not menu.ONE.lst06:10
Flanneljinja-sheep: You'll find a good deal of the more complicated man pages include examples and copious (sometimes to its own detriment) documentation06:10
ebabynickrud: closest things is File: /boot/grub/menu/1st  which is at the very top to the left of GNU nano 2.0.706:10
Gneamib_2dc6mp: yeah06:11
mikegriffinFlannel: would the disk group not work?06:11
mib_2dc6mpGnea I just had a last thought, so my sound card comes with a mixer, I am wondering if there is a way to just set alsa to defaults or even not use it06:11
ebabynickrud: lol06:11
fivecan someone help me, i have a bootdisk.exe program for making a win98 bootdisk, i need the disk to install win98 in virtualbox yet i have no floppy drive so i need to virtualize a floppy drive in order to create the boot disk and boot for virtualbox06:11
caimlasmikegriffin, an older chipset? yeah, it's been around for a while. this is a P3M 1.2GHz w/512M, all intel chipsets (except wireless which is a prism/orinoco minipci).06:11
mikegriffincaimlas: have an older kernel around?06:11
Flannelmikegriffin: That depends on what he wants to do.  But the biggest issue is he wants to make it work for the specific command06:11
Gneamib_2dc6mp: well, were you able to use the card in windows?06:11
mib_2dc6mpGnea yea I used it06:12
mikegriffinFlannel: i see, thanks06:12
fivebasically im looking for a program that will create a virtual floppy disk in linux06:12
ebabynickrud: so I exit again and then type "nano /... but with .Lst as in capital 'L'  ?06:12
caimlasmikearr, nothing 'older' no... I've had this problem for a while, pretty much since 2.6 I think.06:12
Flannelebaby: No, lowercase l06:12
nickrudno, small L none One06:12
LawnGnome1five: Set CD rom as first boot device in BIOS06:12
caimlaser, ^ mikegriffin06:12
Gneamib_2dc6mp: then there must be a way to get the audio out in a properly balanced stereo via ALSA... just not sure how06:13
ebabynickrud: you mean to say not one but L (lowercase)i.e.  'l'06:13
nickrudebaby, yes06:13
fiveLawnGnome1(!) it is set that way, i recieve a falure no bootable medium found, so i need to have a boot disk06:14
caimlasmikegriffin, though it's become particularly irksome of late. I did install ubuntu 8.04.1 (when previously I didn't have that .1 version) on a new drive (old failed) and upgraded to intrepid the other day.06:14
mib_2dc6mpGnea yea I started to tweak it06:14

mib_2dc6mpGnea it seems that I just use line 1 and then I found that vmixer 8 nd 9 control the balance06:15
mib_2dc6mpGnea but not the way I would like06:15

biouserI am having big trouble with pulse audio and audacity, ardour doesn't like compressed formats and it overkill for what I am trying to to (and won't play sound with pulse audio either)06:15
nbeeboWhat I'd like to know is how to mix your output channel (e.g. speakers) to work as a microphone, effectively perceiving any sound you play as a sound played into the microphone. To the extent of broadcasting audio files trough means of thy service ventrilo unt voice-in game.06:15
StarwizDoes anyone know how to partition my harddrive in ubuntu?06:15
LawnGnome1five: hrmm,, try resetting BIOS by removing the battery?06:15
mib_2dc6mpGnea maxed 8 and 9 make left channel dominant, reducing 8 and 9 bring right channel more dom06:15
Paradigm_Shiftalex_: try k9copy06:15
Gneabiouser: audacity doesn't support pulseaudio06:16
biouserStarwiz gparted06:16
StarwizI tried that06:16
alex_does k9copy try to reencode the dvd?06:16
faileasStarwiz: you can do it while installing, or using gparted, which is on the live disk06:16
biouserGnea right06:16
ebabynickrub: ok here we are -back to civilization- I C menu.lst06:16
StarwizGparted didn't work... It wont let me resize.06:16
Gneabiouser: are you looking to disable pulseaudio?06:16
alex_I just want the program to rip it to one file instead of 10 vob files06:16
Paradigm_Shiftalex_: you can do a straight copy to ISO or to MPEG406:16
nickrudebaby, ok now look for # defoptions=quiet splash06:16

alex_paradigm_shift doesnt that reencode the video to mpeg 4?06:17
Starwizgparted doesn't let me resize a partition... What do I do? lol.06:17
fiveLawnGnome1(!) thats not gonna work, the iso i have of win98 is not distrubeted commercially it is a modified version therefore i need a msdos promt to install from, meaning i need a virtual floppy disk application to preted to create the boot disk06:17
jinja-sheepFlannel:  I got it.  But how do I know if this is working -- Not the limited time of 15min or so.06:17
Paradigm_Shiftalex_: if you do a straight copy it does not re-encode. You can rip to mpeg 4 as well.06:17
biouserGnea well, I was hoping to work with it if I can make some simple edits on some mp3 with some other program06:18

I've verified the sound card is detected, and sound is going to each speaker fine using "speaker-test -Dplug:surround51 -c6 -l1 -twav" However, Rhythmbox for example, won't play in more than 2 channels. I was using 8.04 earlier this evening and it was working fine. Now that I upgraded I can't get it to work. Any help is appreciated.06:18

^Manui downloaded it, burned a disc, and it wont boot..06:58

^Manubut i had deleted the 8.10 iso since the disc i made (assuming the disc was stuffed)06:59

MenZa^Manu: Have you checked the md5sums of the downloaded iso and the burnt disk?06:59
tristanmikeLawnGnome1: well, I'm gonna tackle that another day, again, thanks for the help. There's good karma for you ;)06:59

^Manuso i just downloaded a new 8.10 iso..06:59
Demios`it's like i'm really back in high school06:59
^Manuand burned it to a new disc..06:59
LawnGnome1^Manu: I did the web installer thing, worked great06:59
wj32darren_: or to make it more specific, what filesystem is the file/folder you want to control on06:59
^Manuand it's broken in exactly the same way..06:59
darren_wj32: ok i dont know what im using, i just installed ubuntu haha06:59

^Manuthe intel gfx driver.07:00
^Manui can try 9.04A207:00
Letter_ZEvery time I try to open an admin tool(Login, Synaptic Package Manger etc) it will just say its opening for a few seconds, then it wont open. Whats wrong with it?07:00
MenZa^Manu: 9.04 is not yet ready for production systems.07:00
^Manuwould people seriously recommend against that?07:00
Demios`http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v161/Flowen/EvWorks.png07:00
wj32darren_: ok then i'm assuming you're using ext3. that does have support for ACLs i think. you'll have to use command line tools to set ACLs though07:00
^Manuhow broken is it?07:00
Letter_Z(8.04 by the way)07:00
MenZa^Manu: Quite broken.07:00
^Manuhmm.07:00
nickrud^Manu, best advice about 9.04 is in #ubuntu+107:00
MenZa^Manu: What speed are you burning the CD at?07:00
^Manuwell its weird.. must be a problem with my hardware or dvd drive or something, but the 8.10 iso produces disc's that wont boot.07:00
^Manu8.04 is fine, 9.04 is fine..07:01
darren_wj32: ok ill look into that on good old google thanks07:01
wj32darren_: try getfattr and setfattr07:01
^Manuit boots to the 'try live cd' 'install kubuntu' menu..07:01

^Manuif i do anything, it tries to read, and fails..07:01
nickrudebaby, what video card do you have?07:01
^Manuyeah i have, and like i say, the other iso's work fine..07:01
darren_wj32: my package manager shows i have acl installed07:01
^Manuand i've tried downloading kubuntu 8.10 twice, from 2 different palces.07:02

kaneda__MattB; if the partitions are visible in ubuntu, then answer should be yes (for read)07:20

Rapture_MattB: look into ntfs-config (allows read/write of NTFS)07:21

RaptureDoes Ubuntu-Server support auto-mounting of USB hard drives?07:23
Takyoji_MattB: Otherwise if it doesn't provide write privileges, you can unmount it, then remount it with "-o rw" to the end of the command.07:23
Son_of_DemetriusWhat does 'Can't Mount CDRom mean?  Yesterday, I had to manually shut down becuse I couldn't eject my cd07:24
eseven73rodolfo: im kinda a minimalistic person myself, i dont like to have to install a million libs just to get something working, especially since im very very low on Harddrive space :/07:24
ebabynickrud:  you mentioned " clt-alt-f2 , log in, run sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop , then run startx" can you elaborate07:24
TakyojiI actually deal with an NTFS partition myself regularly, which wasn't writable each time I'd boot, thus I'd keep remounting it with write privileges (until I found out about /etc/fstab, which is for automatically mounting file systems)07:24
nickrudebaby, ctl-alt-f2 takes you to a console, the stop shuts down the currently running gui, and startx starts it a different way07:25
_MattBi'm still trying to figure out what the partition is, fdisk doesn't work with GPT.. and parted I can't seem to figure out the name of the device07:25
Takyoji_MattB: Install GParted, and see if you can find the partition.07:26
