niklausi've space partition setup. When my memory req are huge , the firefox and other apps becomes slow because of swapping. Later when memory is freed ie (i can see from free -m ) i don't find the applications being moved from swap to memory. This makes many apps slow. How to fix it ?00:00
niklausif i do manually swapoff /dev/sda it works00:00
Flare183niklaus: I don't think that can be done00:00
IderikJordan_U, is it possible to just copy the iso file in to the usb, and then stick it in to my laptop and reboot? ofcourse i set the boot setup to start usb sticks first00:01

niklausmakes it very slow00:01
Flare183niklaus: Actually its not, its because of your hard drive speed that makes the "swapping" slow00:01

Jordan_UIderik, The important thing to know is that you don't need to manually install to a flash drive, there are utilities to do it automatically for windows and there is even one available from the system menu when you are booted from the liveCD. You don't need to know this but you don't "unpack" the part of the CD that is actually compressed, which is called the squashfs00:04
Flare183william56: Not really00:04
seek_therapybecause if i do this wrong i will get a grub error00:05
Flare183!alternate | william56 (Try this)00:05
ubottuwilliam56 (Try this): The Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD.  Look for the alternate link on the Ubuntu download page - See also !minimal - Torrent at http://releases.ubuntu.com/8.10/ubuntu-8.10-alternate-i386.iso.torrent00:05

ubottuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD00:05

JonnyDY2Jhi all. i have just installed open ssh server using the sudo apt-get install openssh-server command01:01
mrpinkyhey, i noticed that most applications install themselves to subdirectories of my home directory, but this makes a mess of my home directory :( is this normal? is there some better place to install them?01:02
Jordan_UCrayboff, How did you change the timeout?01:02
DanielEadscuulu:  System>Preferences>Screen Resolution has configuration options for multiple monitors in Ubuntu 8.10, you could try it with a live CD01:02

sketch_i lost my original gnome menubar is there a way to restore it ?01:02

JonnyDY2Ji was then told to use /ext/init.d/ssh start command but i get and error that says cannot load host key /stc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key01:02
mlLKsketch_: right click and add a new panel01:03
Jordan_Umrpinky, That's not the application itself but rather its configuration files, and yes it's normal01:03
Crayboffjordan_U, i unchecked it. I figured that it would mean that there was no timeout and would stay in the boot screen until i chose an os01:03
JonnyDY2Jand also cannot load host key /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key01:03
JonnyDY2Jcan anyone help01:03
sketch_thanks i did that but i dont like the layout01:03
mlLKJonnyDY2J: try running sudo01:03
mrpinkyJordan_U, i found that a lot of applications install themselves there too :( like $HOME/ApplicationName/bin doc etc....01:03
DanielEadsmrpinky: that's normal, as it separates your application data from the actual system files.  the folders are usually named something like .application, and the dot before them allows the system to hide them from your normal view so they don't clutter things up01:03
sketch_oh ok i can move them nice01:03
mrpinkyJordan_U, or more specifically, where should i install application binaries, docs etc?01:03
kurratasketch_:  right click on it and press move then01:03
Jordan_UCrayboff, Unchecked it where?01:04
JonnyDY2JmiLK: what do you mean by try running sudo?01:04
Jordan_Umrpinky, How are you installing applications? You should be using the package manager01:04

Dracie_well an update on the protocol handlers - i guess telnet doesn't work when trying to call a terminal program01:08

oerterI'm running 6.10 on a Dell Dimension 2400. Whenever I try to update to the next version or download apps it either tells me it could not download all repository indexes or that the server is down. How can I fix this?01:09
Bear7809I know ubuntu has issues with ATI, I also heard that it could be that the splash screen just doesnt follow through with my resolution.01:09
Jack_SparrowBeachSide, Please read what wubi is and how it differs from a real install and how you might be risking your windows partition in the process01:10
Jordan_Uoerter, 6.10 is no longer supported01:10
DanielEadsbear7809: yeah, i had similar issues the other day with a xabre card; it worked when i used a CRT but not an LCD; i ended up just swapping the card out for an nvidia one01:10
Jack_Sparrowoerter, try  sudo do-release-upgrade01:10
Bear7809right well, lets just say im real broke cant afford a new card.01:11
Bear7809so what should i do?01:11
rwwoerter: Edgy/6.10 isn't supported any more, and its repository was removed quite some time ago. The upgrade path from 6.10 to a supported version is rather tedious, so you might want to consider grabbing an 8.04 or 8.10 CD and reinstalling.01:11
DanielEadshave you tried a different monitor?01:11
Jordan_UJack_Sparrow, Would you really be risking your windows partition any more than normally? I thought it was only a great risk to the Ubuntu image in a power failure, or do you not reccomend ntfs-3g at all?01:11
Bear7809could it really be the monitor thats the problem and not the card?01:11
WebcamWonderGuys, weird problem. While doing aptitude update, I am getting Error 400 URI Failure Message. I am assuming one of my repositories is failing, any ideas how to see which one?01:11

Bear7809to long in01:12
Bear7809the monitor comes back on01:12
ethanwhast the command to veiw the amount of space left and amount being used for ubuntu?01:12
DanielEadsbear8709: it's most likely the card then01:12
\kiraethan: sudo fdisk -l?01:12
Jack_SparrowJordan_U, I have no problem with ntfs-3g..  I wont let ubuntu write to my OS partition, any others.. ok.. just not my installed os partition01:12
kurrataethan:  df -h01:13
DanielEadsbear8709: trying a different display driver might help, lemmie see if i can pull up a link for some documentation on that01:13
WebcamWonderNever mind, found the culprit. Playdeb!01:13
Bear7809i might have to update the display driver while im running ubuntu though01:13
Jack_SparrowJordan_U, In a power failure situation, you risk more than just the wubi install01:13
Bear7809im not so good with all the commadn line stuff but i think i might have to01:13
Jordan_UJack_Sparrow, Why more so than with a power failure when booted into windows, or when using ntfs-3g normally?01:14
DanielEadsbear7809: give this a go: sudo apt-get install xorg-driver-fglrx01:14
Jack_SparrowJordan_U, Read up on wubi.  I personally feel it is ok for a test drive. but nothing more.. Just my opinion01:15

ubottuRPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous and unsupported)01:38
MatBoyjoejc: you need to alien them01:38
Bear7809i tried loging in normaly but just guessing what the login screen was doing01:39
exodus_msis there a command I can use to retrieve a list of instances I have used wget in the terminal. I'm having a hard time remembering some of the parameters I use with wget and would like to retrieve a history01:39
joejci just want to know why you cant01:39
Ideriktj83, thanks a lot! it does recommend me to make a swap partion, how big should it be? i'm installing ubuntu from live usb stick01:39
Jack_Sparrowjoejc, Really, really not advised that you use alien for rpms01:39
Dracie_the new 8.10 thingy in the corner is lovely01:39
MatBoyjoejc: because RPM's are not friendly ;(01:39
tj83Iderik, how much RAM do you have?01:39
Jack_Sparrowjoejc, If you need it that bad, compile it yourself01:39
rwwjoejc: because Ubuntu uses apt, not rpm. They're different, incompatible package management systems.01:39
php_wizardrywhen "lsusb" list a device, does that mean the driver for the device has been installed for it?01:39
mib_vfkcjajoejc: because even redhat/suse/etc. use YUM now for different handling of RPM repositories01:40
Iderik2gb ram with 2 ghz 1 core on a compaq laptop01:40
rwwphp_wizardry: not necessarily, no.01:40

mishkins\Mass[UB]: did you forrward the port needed for the irc server?02:21
eseven73Mass[UB]: 6660-6667 is IRC ports according to Wikipedia02:21
HellFire-Auusr13: Problems start when i use brctl to bridge ra0 and eth0. No connectivity and no dhcp working, i don't think the signal even gets to the router as nothing shows up in the router config half of the time02:22
usr13So the eithernet NIC is connected directly to the xbox?02:22
eseven73Mass[UB]: non encrypted ports that is02:22
mishkins\Mass[UB]: because if you have a router of any kind or even a software firewall it won't respond to your trying to connect02:22
HellFire-Auusr13: I have used firestarter and that has worked but it doesn't allow a transparent connection to my router (ie there is only 1 ip for both the htpc and 360, i need 1 ip for each)02:22

HellFire-Auusr13: My home theatre pc is connected to my wireless router/modem via a usb dongle. That provides the internet access. The home theatre pc also has a single ethernet port which is connected directly ethernet to ethernet to my xbox 36002:25
donavans3a:  cpu freq scaler?02:26
HellFire-Auusr13: As i explained firestarter doesn't provide the transparent functionality i need, certain xbox 360 features cannot work because firestarter combines both the htpc and 360 under one ip. I need 2 seperate ip's for each device, i have done this on windows by bridging the interfaces and has worked quite successfully, though when i try on mythbuntu it fails to register an ip02:26

Draciedonavan: what kind of information?02:28

FAJALOU1So the real issue is the album that I have that is downloaded as WMA's and the songs will crackle. This primarily happens when I switch viewports (using metacity right now), but this doesn't even really matter because it will do it randomly and sporadically also. The most peculiar part of this is that Amarok runs these wma files perfectly. Now I know that they are different engines... but it would be nice to know why these files are ru02:31
usr13HellFire-Au: If you need dhcp server running, make sure it is configured to communicate [only] over eth002:31
donavandracie: well mainly what the actual difference between the mobile and the desktop model ... is there a xp3200+ mobile or just the desktop version ... I have been googling it but I always get the athlon 64 info02:31
eseven73sztomi: i think Unison does that or maybe rsync (the gui for those are unison-gtk and grsync)02:31

FAJALOU1Banshee is kind of failing me right now, so I ran back to my old and trusty Amarok. I am trying to set up the keyboard shortcuts with the buttons play/pause, stop, back, forward, but amarok must not recognize these buttons or something because they do not come up when I try to put them in. This works, however, in Banshee, so I am guessing it has something to do with Amarok being KDE. So I was wondering what packages I need to allow thi02:32

sztomithanks anyway :)02:33
MatBoydonavan: moved away from CentOS ?02:33
Draciedonavan: you need to figure out what socket type it is, and how much power your computer can consume for processor, and if it may fit02:33
dblickwhat's the command line utility that can tell me which processes are using a file?02:33
eseven73Mass[UB]: you could try this in the VM 'ifconfig' and get the ip from that and try to ping it from windows or anywhere really if it pings, then just forward the port for that IP02:33
HellFire-Auusr13: I don't need a dhcp server running on the actual linux box, both the 360 and the ethernet NIC on the linux box are configured statically and work without a bridge + firestarter. When bridged, the wireless usb dongle fails getting an ip from my router via dhclient02:34
Doc8404anyone in here know of any free flash editing programs that are good programs not garbage02:34
eseven73Mass[UB]: so like if the VM ip is 10.*.*.* try forwarding 6667 for that ip02:34

This works, however, in Banshee, so I am guessing it has something to do with Amarok being KDE. So I was wondering what packages I need to allow thi02:35
HellFire-Auusr13: So the problem actually lies in the linux box because all connectivity from the linux box drops when the bridge is enabled, i have to manually use the keyboard to destroy the bridge to restore connectivity02:35
donavandracie: the xp-m 2400 uses a socket A  and so does the xp3200+ basically the only difference is the the FSB speed 266 on the 2400 and 400 on some models of the 3200 ... I seem to remember there being a direct replacement chip for this lappy but its been years since I last looked now Im trying to ebay the CPU so need to make sure the specs are right02:37

ttuttleHey.  I just installed Ubuntu 8.10 (it's awesome!)  I'm setting up rdiff-backup so my mom's home directory is always backed up, but Ubuntu only provides version 1.1.16, and my host requires at least 1.2.something (they run 1.2.2).  How can I get a newer version?03:06
ttuttle(I'm normally a Gentoo user, so I'm not averse to installing by hand, but I'd rather convince apt/synaptic to do it the right way.)03:07
node357yeah efeXor, I wish the Steam Community overlay worked in WINE03:07
DClayBuckusr13: Not sure. The video freezes, and I can't do anything besides a hard reset, but the audio keeps going like nothing's wrong.  It also locked up during the screensaver once or twice, but that was with the old drivers.03:07

sysdocphlux I found one but it don't wanna work03:25
HellFire-Auunop: Yeah, i tried dhclient br0 but the problem was it was requesting on the interface that was connected to other devices, not the interface that was connected to my router03:26

\kiraalso, it works fine if I connect from my LAN. It *seems* this problem happens to everyone who connects outside my LAN03:28
unopHellFire-Au, then it shouldn't matter if you did a  dhclient br0  -- as long as your wireless driver allows your wireless interface to be put in a bridged mode, it should pick up an address - but that's something to look out for, not all wireless devices can successfully be part of a bridge03:29

tbonechicwould that be of any help05:25
LtLDeadboys: you need to be root/sudo to  install ircd05:25
tbonechicwhat is it that u need?05:25
cyorxamptbonechic, the same 8.04 that came with it?05:25
nickrudDeadboys, install as root, but run it as a non-privileged user, the config probably has provisions for that05:25
maraboutnickrud:  -- next info is mask no other info beyond RX, TX ,etc is shwoing. BTW my goal on irc is to get help to  wipe the existing 8.10 which isnt working and install Hardy via Live CD05:25
tbonechiccyorxamp: no, I installed it via LiveCD and upgraded to Intrepid05:26
Deadboysthere isnt any provisions like that in the config for it05:26
Deadboyswould it be bad to run as root?05:26
HellFire-AuCan anyone help me set up a bi-directional nat?05:26
maraboutNickrud: since I assume I cannot connect to Net this way since I have not set up a network config file as you mentioned previously correct?05:26
joejci there a way i can save my files to some kind of internet drive. i used gmail on ubuntu05:26
LtLDeadboys: just install/edit  config and start as root.05:26
nickrudmarabout, simply boot up the cd and run the install on the same partition as the 8.10 install. Part of the default install is wiping out whatever was on the partition already :)05:26
buckAny news if they fixed the problem with the nvidia 177 drivers. everytime i try to activate it when i reboot just goes to a text screen05:26

LtLDeadboys: once installed, use your ircd pass for priveleges05:27
tbonechicsure thing.  I'll msg u what I have once I copy it ^_^05:27

php_wizardrynickrud: thanks man, thank god one of us remembered :P06:04
Foncynsadmin, so you think nickruds idea won't work?06:04
nickrudphp_wizardry, I've used our long, drawn out troubleshooting as an example of how not asking the right question is FAIL on my part :)06:04
nsadminI don't know :)06:04
HermanDEdonavan: Download a builders drive test disk.....  Maxtor, WD, Seagate...etc...06:04
nsadminprobably it will but I didn't see his idea06:04
blah569HermanDE:  vftpd or something similar to that name.06:04
FoncyI think I'm going to try that first, sounds a  lot easier.06:04
php_wizardryty again06:04
nickrudnsadmin, Foncy heh. Just download the gparted Live CD and use that :)06:05
nsadminI was thinking maybe he didn't want to reboot06:05
joejcis there a ftp program that automaticly syncs folder with server?06:05
FoncyShe does want to reboot a million times if necessary :)06:05
neil_dthe sound on my computer has stoped working, when I boot off the CD it goes OK.  how can I get it to work again ?06:05
nsadminso she doesn't care about that, ok06:05
HermanDEFoncy: There are a couple of CD based distros that are designed for things like resizing partitions.....06:05
FoncyHermanDE, orly?06:06
* nickrud looks at deciphering parted's command line switches, vs reboot. HAAHAHAHA06:06
HermanDEFoncy: Yep....  Kind of like a free partition magic thing....06:06
FoncyExactly nickrud :D06:06
FoncyHermanDE, we are at that point already in this conversation.06:06
nsadminFoncy: do you have any interest in trying lvm?06:06
nite_johnboyLtL; That is real nice - Tried doing another test page from URL and screen justs blinks a half a millisecond and does not do print job - Using HP LaserJet 1020 Foomatic/foo2zjs (recommended) driver.06:06
donavanhermande: yeah I have a bunch of them on various cds but I was hoping for a linux based util that I can run on the OS rather than having to reboot the machine and hookup the drive to an IDE port right now I have it connected to a USB  connector06:07
nsadminit's a way to make this whole process easier in the future06:07
LtLnite_johnboy: from the command line type: ls |lpr06:07
nsadminbut it would be hard to set up if you're already running06:07
HermanDEFoncy: I'm slow......  http://gparted.sourceforge.net/news.php06:07
raylu!sound neil_d06:08
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about sound neil_d06:08
nsadminhow to find if tdom is packaged for ubuntu and what versions are in what version of ubuntu06:08
raylu!sound | neil_d06:08
ubottuneil_d: 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 !MP306:08
raylunsadmin: use your package manager06:08

Prez00i am running latest Ubuntu, but with latest kernel and am getting a crash in what seems to be e1000 module, what channel should I try o try and ifgure this out?06:09
nsadminI'm running debian, I want to find out for ubuntu06:09
raylunsadmin: http://packages.ubuntu.com06:09
nickrudmarabout, it should give you a link to a web site you can search. The bot is useful, if you already know what it's been taught06:09
Foncynsadmin, the most rocky way isn't always the hardest for me. I think saying what way is the easiest depends on the users knowledge, and mine isn't exactly huge... :)06:09
rayluWastePotato: if you want to use the free ati driver, you can just remove your xorg.conf06:10
rayluWastePotato: though i'd recommend renaming it, of course06:10
nite_johnboyLtL; Not getting return of anything - just comes back to comp. name@comp.name-desktop: blink blink < no output >06:10
LtLnite_johnboy: also in menu: click system - prefs - set default printer06:10
HermanDEFoncy: Everybody needs to destroy a fixed number of partitions before lessons turn to wisdom.....06:10
nite_johnboyLtL; 1st thing I tried.06:10
Deadboysdoes anyone know the name of the package that contains the openssl development libraries06:11
HermanDEFoncy: In my case I think I'm up to about 30 or 35...  The wisdom has yet to arrive.....06:11
Deadboysim trying to install it via aptget and i cant remember the name of it06:11
FoncyHermanDE, that would be awful! I installed and reinstalled Ubuntu a lot of times already, but never lost any data.06:11
nite_johnboyLtL; System-Preferences - that is....06:11
HermanDEFoncy: I'm talking about resizing live partitions.....06:11
Deadboysits not openssl-dev does anyone know what it is?06:11
rayluDeadboys: libssl-dev, i think06:11
Deadboysalright thanks06:12
Deadboysthats it raylu06:12
Deadboysi remembered it was somthing -dev06:12
bobbie4Okay strange problem with Ubuntu that I can't figure out. When I hook up my external USB creative sound card it will only play audio for events where I hover the cursor over a ogg or mp3 file. Other than that sound only comes from the laptop speakers. I've been through every setting in Preferences -> Sound to no available. Also the sound is only in Mono and in volume control when I select the USB sound device I only have one PCM slide06:12
bobbie4r. Any thoughts?06:12
Deadboysthanks again06:12
LtLnite_johnboy: try system - admin - new printer or have you already?06:12
presdecwould appreciate some help, how can i change the gnome panel font? all the forum topics etc i google'd looked out of date <-2007..06:12

Foncynickrud, Live_CD is burning atm... so I just boot from that CD and use gparted as usual?06:13
nickrudFoncy, yep.06:13
raylubobbie4: to set a default sound device, i think you have to edit the indicies in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base06:13
darren_is there an australian room for ubuntu?06:13

php_wizardrynickrud: :(06:15
HermanDEFoncy: Have fun...06:15
nickrudphp_wizardry, what?06:15
FoncyI hopefully will.06:15
HermanDEFoncy: And remember...  Data is imaginary.....06:15
php_wizardrynickrud: that wasn't it06:15
maraboutnickrud: if I wanted to specify boot parameters I would stick in the line after "quiet splash"?06:15
php_wizardrynickrud:still not working06:15
raylumarabout: you shouldn't edit those. edit defoptions instead06:15
nickrudphp_wizardry, I know :) But you left before I remembered.   sudo apt-get install nvidial-glx-177 , and add    Driver "nvidia"  to the Device Section06:16
nsadminmarabout: if you're running grub, the kernel command line would be in /boot/grub/menu.lst (default place)06:16
nite_johnboyLtL; Yes tried that as well - not sure what's going on here - What about the nothing returned from shell command ?06:16
nickrudmarabout, yes. The proper method is to add it to the line that starts with   # defoptions  , then sudo apt-get update-grub. That will make sure those are added to the kernel line properly with each kernel upgrade06:17
raylunickrud: no apt-get06:17
bobbie4i'll try raylu06:17
nsadminit would add them to each kernel06:17
php_wizardrynickrud: sorry, i was in vista and am right now, so i will have to leave and go back to ubuntu, will have this written down this time, ty again06:17
nickrudraylu, heh. This is why I don't normally help more than one at a time :)  marabout   just   sudo update-grub06:17
LtLnite_johnboy: the shell cmd was to test the line printer daemon, google for the correct driver or check hardware compat lists. i dunno06:17
vigognomeI plunkered some KDE stuff into this install, should I remove it, and if so,,how?06:17
nickrudphp_wizardry, no problem06:17
maraboutnickrud: so if I want to input this "boot: live vga=771 noapic nolapic where do I need to input that? bypass the install screen somehow? can you explain plz06:18
php_wizardrynickrud: btw, how can you connect to wifi through command prompt?06:18
raylunickrud: installing nvidia-glx should install nvidia-glx-177 and later versions06:18
maraboutnickrud: F6 other options?06:18
raylunickrud: and you shouldn't have to add the driver yourself to xorg.conf06:18
nickrudraylu, thanks.06:18
nickrudraylu, the install of the driver does that, alone?06:18
mikebotDoes ubuntu come with helvetica fonts?06:19
nsadminmarabout oh, that's the live cd?06:19
raylunickrud: i don't remember. but if it doesn't, nvidia-xconfig does it for you06:19
maraboutnsadmin: yes 7.106:19
nickrudraylu, the issue was he couldn't even get to a gui without the nvidia driver, the nv doesn't support his card06:19
nsadminmarabout, I'm not sure how you would save those options to a live cd06:20
presdecany ideas on the gnome panel font? gnome channels real quiet :P also my in built 4-1card reader doesn't appear at all, any ideas?06:20
nickrudmarabout, save for a live cd? You can't06:20
nsadminbut if you have linux installed, then you could alter the boot loader config file06:20
bobbie4raylu: what you suggested looks promising, but I'll have to learn 'Linux' first. I can't understand a single thing in that file.06:20
HermanDEnsadmin: usage of a USB device...06:20
nickrudmarabout, but for just editing the kernel line, yes at the end of quiet splash06:20
LtLmikebot: try installing msttcorefonts package06:20

nsadminHermanDE: so it's a live usb stick?06:21
FoncyDidn't want to boot from the Live-CD :(06:21
raylubobbie4: there should be a driver with the word "usb" in it. set it to 0 or 106:21
HermanDEFoncy: What happened....06:21
maraboutnsadmin: 8.10 is there beneath but it wont load correctly (graphics probs -via chrome9 hc igp06:21
bobbie4thank you raylu I'll look there06:21
raylubobbie4: or pastebin that file for me (i don't have it handy)06:21
mikebotLtL: I already have the newest version..06:21
HermanDEnsadmin: Some live distros allow saving settings to a usb device....06:21
DasEinickrud:generic vesa mostly gives a basic (gui-able) solution for configuration06:22
LtLmikebot: i kinda doubt it, search in synaptic for gimp packages06:22
maraboutnickrud: so no reason to remove "quiet splash" just type after it?06:22
nickrudmarabout, yes06:22
FoncyHermanDE, I tried to boot from the gparted-Live CD, went to the boot menu, chose the drive, hit Return, but all that happend was Ubuntu starting....06:22
HermanDEFoncy: Now you have me interested...  I've used that disk a few times.......06:22
HermanDEI'll boot it here....06:22
FoncyIm trying again, brb06:23
Daejeonirik: the system is locking the root access on console, and flashing blue screen06:23
rayluFoncy, HermanDE: why are you using a gparted live cd? what's wrong with gparted on ubuntu?06:23
nite_johnboyLtL; When I checked URL page again I clicked on "Show all jobs " and it shows printer name HP Laserjet - 1020 - 4,5,6,7,8,9 - consecutively after each test print - When I click on " Show active jobs " - It shows none. So they do not seem to stuck in a que - but just not going through with job.  - Will close everything down and try a restart - not sure what else to do at this point....06:23
nickrudDasEi, does vesa support the 9500gt? not sure myself. Anyway, we came at his solution the first time (since he couldn't get a gui at all) by adding the driver stuff manually, then finally discovering he had two video cards and we needed to add the BusID.06:23
syn-finhow do i hardcode dns servers into ubuntu 8.04 from CLI? I want to get IP and netmask from DHCP but DNS record to stay the same all the time?06:23

nickrudDasEi, yes. X tried to use the onboard chip06:24
nite_johnboyLtL; Will work on it awhile - maybe restart will be the Cure All - ???06:24
HermanDEraylu: I like specalized tools.  I have too much experience using general toolkits and toasting drives......06:25
nickrudDasEi, I've used our long, drawn out troubleshooting as an example of how not asking the right question is FAIL on my part :)06:25
DasEinickrud:hm, monitor onboard, then via gui, harwaredrivers ??06:25
syn-finraylu, im using network manager byt every 30 minutes or so DNS goes back to old one06:25
rayluHermanDE: you realize that gparted on any cd is going to be the same, right?06:25
nickrudDasEi, didn't follow that06:25
raylusyn-fin: yeah. network manager is kinda hit or miss06:25
raylusyn-fin: it's just that when it misses, you wonder how it managed to screw up so bad06:26
HermanDEraylu: Sure, but the kernel and associated libraries will be different....06:26
HermanDEraylu: You do realize that gparted is dependent on the libraries located in the distribution?06:26
rayluHermanDE: it really will make no difference at all. the one on the gparted cd isn't "better"06:26
DasEinickrud:if hal first initializes the onboard (most bioses let it set you), you could use that to get to the dek-gui, then use system> hardwaredrivers to configure the slot-one06:26
syn-finraylu, do you know what to type in /etc/network/interfaces for eth0 to use as dns?06:27
HermanDEraylu: Ok, You have your way, I have mine....06:27

=== Mud|dev is now known as Mud
nickrudDasEi, ah, I think I follow you there. A lot of the gui stuff is black magic to me. The whole reason I use linux is having text file configs I can edit. I'm of two minds about the abstraction that's going on now.06:28
syn-finraylu, hm man interfaces | grep dns , does not return anything :(06:29
nickrudDasEi, but if X is trying to use a card that's not hooked up to a monitor, well, there's only one way to get around it that I know of06:29
Don_MiguelHello all, I have a problem with Update Manager not being able to install updates,   see  http://paste.ubuntu.com/100088/06:30
nickrudDasEi, udev gives me hives, and now hal is on top of that06:30
DasEinickrud:especially on ibex (xorg 7.4) same with me, but you can still editt xorg.conf manually; had to do the same (onboard/slot, ibex)06:30

jigpehello how to hide the users from the desktop?the users will just type there username and pass in order to login.06:31
raylusyn-fin: grep -i? also, instead of grepping man pages, consider using / to search06:31
nickrudDasEi, but we're getting offtopic for support; meta discussions about support should have it's own channel l;)06:31
maraboutnickrud: 7.1 choked worse than 8.10 - is there way to find out what settings the installer intrepid used and plug them in somewhere so that they can be used upon reboot?06:31
DasEinickrud:hal is a nice idea to get faster (kernel-implementation, no modules), but as I said, you can often configure default graphic-card in bios > hal takes that up06:32
nickrudDasEi, yeah, he couldn't06:32
rayluDon_Miguel: on the off chance it's been fixed, sudo aptitude clean06:32
rayluDon_Miguel: or just remove the file yourself06:32
nickrudmarabout, I don't know, but others that come through here may06:32

nsadminand btw, I'm mostly not here... so you may have to repeat later06:36
maraboutDasEi: intrepid is installed It displayed perfectly during install but afterwards no display. i take that to mean that it can display/use the via chrome9 hc igp card but needs to be told how and when.06:36
rayluitai-michaelson: there is some configuring you have to do to get apache to use php to process .php files, but installing php should do that for you. try "sudo aptitude reinstall php5"06:36

ubottuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD06:40

HectorGentlemen, can I get any assistance with getting my sound to work? Highlight or PM me if you can get me somewhere.06:47
raylu!who | nsadmin06:47
ubottunsadmin: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)06:47
raylu!sound | Hector06:47
ubottuHector: 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 !MP306:47
presdeci saw is as the result of dmesg | tail, while trying to resolve why my 4in1 card reader wasn't working06:48
remunsadmin, ummm....right now, no other one, everyone else is asleep, well, my linksys pap2 sip device is connected,  i can go connect the desktop downstairs if that may help06:48
presdecthe system is a new install it can't be hd? right?06:48
DasEimarabout: login possible now ?06:49
HermanDEpresdec: just a buffer miss.  Usually happens when systems are initializing.  Not good when you get about a 1000 within 5 minutes....06:49
nsadminremu: yeah, fire it up, try pinging the gateway (which has what internal ip address?) and then ping the laptop with it06:49
rwwpresdec: /dev/sr0 is CD-ROM, not hard-drive. Hard drives are /dev/sdXN06:49
nsadminremu: each machine has a preassigned internal IP address?06:50
presdecty rww and HermanDe06:50
maraboutDesEi: Same white/grey garbled text flashing across screen If I let it continue eventually a window will pop up saying ubunut is running in Low-graphics mode. Clicking anything associated with this window just repeats the process06:50
maraboutDesEi: not possible06:50
presdecany idea why 4in1 doesn't even show in dmesg then??06:50
HectorRaylu: I'm seeing if anyone can actually guide me through the process. I'm using ALSA for it already.06:50
HermanDEpresdec: try lsusb06:51
DasEimarabout: again what was the exact name of the card ?06:51
rayluHector: have you tried the other steps in there?06:51
HectorI have.06:51
remunsadmin, yes each does, the ip for the desktop is
bobbie4Well, that's a first.  Just opened up a window in Firefox 3 and crashed my session. The machine stayed on and only restarted my GUI session. weird.06:51
nickrudmarabout, lspci | grep -i vga has the info you need06:51

nsadminso the laptop sees the desktop06:52
presdecok found the device, how can i determine mount points now?06:52
remunsadmin, i can go back downstairs and ping from there, but im pretty sure it works as well from there06:52
nickrudmarabout, it's a command you can type in a terminal which would give you the info you just gave to DesEI :)06:52
nickrudfuzeboxsoftware, great!06:53
remunsadmin, yes the laptop sees the desktop06:53
syn-finI have ubuntu 8.04 and when I check for updates it says your system is up to date, shouldn't it upadte my system to 8.10?06:53

remunsadmin, yes, the laptop can ping the desktop06:53
rayluasim: why?06:53
presdecyeah.. nothing happens though06:53
rwwsyn-fin: 8.04 is an LTS release, so it won't prompt you to update to non-LTS releases. See !lts and !upgrade.06:53

nickrudsyn-fin, it will if you go to system->admin->software sources and on the updates tab, change the last dropdown to normal releases06:54
nsadminremu so here are my intermediate results... your internal net is fine, you can't reach outside for some reason... btw, what machine are you irc-ing from06:54
HermanDEpresdec: pull out the card, tail the syslog, push the card back in and see what is reported....06:54
nickrudmarabout, clt-alt-f2 to get out, ctl-alt-f7 to get back06:54
asimfor that reason I successfully installed "ffmpeg" throgh SSH, and phpinfo is clearly showing it06:54
rayluitai-michaelson: i see no php06:55

rayluitai-michaelson: oh, i'm blind. the ? isn't in the righth place06:55
remunsadmin, i am irc-ing from the laptop, my internal network is fine, and all of the computers that can connect to the internal network can also connect to the internet...the server just doesnt seem to be connecting to the router/internal network06:55
rayluitai-michaelson: *right. <?php echo .Hello World.; ?>06:55
nickruditai-michaelson, <?php print 'hello world?' ?> ?06:55

rayluasim: youtube uses flv06:56
nsadminok, so I've lost what the problem is :)06:56
nickrudfuzeboxsoftware, missed your last. I use network manager, it's been automatic for me. Did have to go to system->admin->hardware drivers and enable my wifi, though06:56
itai-michaelsonraylu, nickrud HELLO WORLD! thank you06:56
rayluasim: ohhh. there's an ffmpeg php extension06:56
remunsadmin, the problem is that my server will not connect to the router, i can not access my server from anymachine06:57
asimraylu: youtuble actually converts video file format into flv, this is what actually ffpmeg does06:57
fuzeboxsoftwarenickrud: I can connect to wifi but not when WEP is enabled06:57
asimraylu: yes there is ffmpeg-php extension06:57
nsadminyour server... which is not the laptop06:57
remuthe server is in my local internal network06:57

nickrudfuzeboxsoftware, I used wpa2 , and it worked. Never tried wep06:57
rayluasim: so yeah, i still need a more specific question. all you've told me is that it doens't work06:57
maraboutnickrud: strange those commands do nothing but produce more grey matter on the screen06:58

Foncynsadmin, I still want to install a windows OS for gaming on the new partition, which will lead to reinstalling GRUB I suppose..07:06

ubottutonno: fsck 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 reboot07:10

Foncynsadmin, I think I'm going to solve the current issue first and then attend to the next one. :D It's just too confusing.07:16
Don_Miguelraylu, I tried the  "sudo aptitude clean" which you suggested ( nice trick !) {ref:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/100088/ } then waited while the files were downloaded 'fresh' by UpdateManager,  and then it returned the same error :  E: /var/cache/apt/archives/perl-modules_5.8.8-12ubuntu0.3_all.deb: files list file for package `xulrunner-1.9-gnome-support' is missing final newline   ...   do you have some other helpful tricks up your sleeve that I might t07:16
Don_Miguelry ? ... or should I wait a few more days and try the    "sudo aptitude clean"  again ??  this package problem has continued for almost 2 weeks now .. is there someplace I need to report it ? If so, where ?     Many Thanks !!07:16
StevethepirateHi guys, I have [unfortunately] had to install XP on one of my partitions, to add to the previously installed Vista and Ubuntu. But now my bootloader is teh_screwed. How can (1) I fix grub to become the default boot loader? And will grub allow me to have Vista and XP as 2 options? Or do I need to make a Windows loader of myself?07:16

FoncyNo, recovering GRUB after installing Windows, like Stevethe1irate :)07:18

nsadminirate pirate?07:18
tmurdersome way to just download the deb from repos? not install07:18

nsadmintmurder: man apt-get, look for -d07:18
rayluasim: su -u should do the same thing07:18
FoncyStevethepirate, ofc.07:18
rayluasim: also, i just noticed you're missing some ;07:19
asimraylu: oki let try this07:19
Foncynsadmin, how frequent is your presence here? :)07:19
Don_Miguelraylu, I am still using 8.04  ... how do I  update the repositories ??07:19
asimraylu: no no I just removed ; for wrhting here, cauz bot was not allowing me to  post script with semicolons07:19
tmurdernsadmin: aye, but i have to specify some operation, and i dont want to do install, since it will still want to remove a bunch of packages (dep probs) even though its not actually installing with -d07:19
maraboutDesEi: just to clarify I will be using the xorg.conf in hardy since Intrepid does not have the drivers for my card within itself right?07:19

rccum1nd: 8.10.?07:20
nsadmintmurder: somehow get a list of package files with their paths on the mirror07:20
jim_pwhat does "apt-cache rdepends package" do?07:21

rccum1nd: that's way too cool07:21
nsadminthen download those to a dir, then install everything in that dir07:21
raylujim_p: apt-cache --help. i believe rdepends = reverse dependencies07:21
DasEimarabout: 87% right: hardy and ibex differ in graphics-solution, but ibex still accepts manual config via xorg.conf ( a file), located /etc/X11/xorg.conf07:21
asimraylu: I didn't get it exactly what exactly it means, plz describe if you can07:21
Don_Miguelraylu, Thank you07:21

jinja-sheepIs there a command that'll make a list of all packages I have installed?07:22
rww!clone | jinja-sheep07:22
ubottujinja-sheep: To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude --disable-columns --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » - See also !automate07:22
rayluasim: because apache is running in a chrooted environment to prevent access to files outside it's directories07:22
FoncyStevethepirate, I happen to have to solve the same issue later, so that's what I found :)07:22
jim_praylu, which means in plain words? if i set "apt-cache rdepends firefox" i get a ton of packages. does it mean they depend on ff?07:22
asimraylu: I think it has because when i use exec("whoami") it returns with some results07:22
HellFire-AuI have my linux box setup as a nat, gets internet connectivity through a wireless usb dongle ra0 (connected to a router) and has a single xbox 360 connected via ethernet eth0.

raylujinja-sheep: or, just dpkg -l07:22
StevethepirateOnly a backtrack 3 disck07:22

nsadminFoncy: is not :P I like playing bass :P07:25
FoncyStevethepirate, the link from ubottu didn't work for you either?07:25
Foncynsadmin, if you see it from that point of view you're right, for sure.07:26
rwwjinja-sheep: The command to submit a factoid correction is "!no, factoidname is <reply> new factoid text". Or wander into #ubuntu-ops and let them know.07:26

StevethepirateLet me check that out07:26
m1ndkonzept: try 8.04; you may have better luck. Or, if you know whats missing you could try custom patching the kernel; but things get ugly when you play with ubuntu's kernel.07:26
Foncynsadmin, I was just hoping to reach you here when I'm attending to the mic issue :)07:26
m1ndkonzept: why do you say the partitioner.07:26
itai-michaelsonguys quick question to change permission for folders to 777, the syntax is chmod -R 777 /path/to/dir , correct? do i need sudo if it's in my /home?07:27
nsadminoh, well... that depends on when that's gonna be... you could always try /msging me I suppose07:27
konzeptm1nd, because i set 400 gbs to use ubuntu on the drive i mounted it as root and ext3, then the 2nd part is sha5 and ntfs07:27
m1nditai-michaelson: no.07:27
StevethepirateI'll give super grub disk a bash (no pun intended)07:27
rayluitai-michaelson: -R is recursive07:28
konzeptm1nd ive ubuntu installed on this computer before just fine07:28
Stevethepirateand then take it from there07:28

Foncynsadmin, I will, thanks :)07:28
rayluDon_Miguel: sudo rm /var/...07:28
rwwitai-michaelson: yes, if you also want everything in the directory to be changed. If you own everything in your home directory, you don't need sudo, otherwise you will.07:28
itai-michaelsonm1nd, no as in my syntax is incorrect or bo as in i don't need sudo?07:28
itai-michaelsonrww, raylu thanks07:28
HemebondI just remembered my other question: if "/srv contains site-specific data which is served by this system." why is the default Apache root /var/www/?07:28
m1nditai-michaelson: chmod 777 /pathtofyle07:29
konzeptm1nd i guess my question would be can i use that extra 100 gbs as a ubuntu filesystem without formatting the data on it? i think that may work07:29
m1ndkonzept: what is your boot parittion? what fstype?07:29
Don_Miguelraylu, Thank you ... going to try that  ( getting some much needed  cli  practice this morning )07:29
konzeptm1nd the filesystem is freshly formatted to ext307:29
m1ndkonzept: yes of course; you would edit /etc/fstab07:29
FoncyI think you can't use NTFS with Ubuntu07:30
itai-michaelsonraylu, i'm following this guid: http://www.phpbb.com/support/documents.php?mode=install&version=3#require , in quick installation step 4 , it asks for changing dir permissions to 777, will i need to add -R here?07:30

FoncyI would trust them I think :)07:32

nsadminFoncy: so what do you want to use your mic for?07:32
konzeptm1nd i wasnt aware if live cd would let me access the network07:32

Foncynsadmin, the plot thickens? Is that some kind of weird saying I don't know, or did I find another word I didn't know yet? :)07:37
nsadminsometimes I wonder who is enjoying themselves more, the gossip columists or the people who read them :)07:37
nsadminFoncy: which word?07:38
FoncyThe more important question is: If there's people who are happy without gossip at all, why does it exist? Just for fun? :D07:38
rayluFoncy: your question can be generalized to "why are dumb people dumb"07:38
Foncynsadmin, "the plot thickens"... I didn't really get what you meant, but I guess it wasn't really important.07:38
rayluFoncy: and i'll give you the nobel peace prize for the answer07:39
kaiser10123im using xfce and did something it just made both panels disappear how do i get them back07:39
Foncyraylu, naa... it's dumb to say that only dumb people like gossip :)07:39
rwwFoncy, nsadmin: Entertaining as your conversation is, consider taking it to #ubuntu-offtopic. #ubuntu is supposed to stick to actual support topics ;)07:39
rayluFoncy: gossip is dumb, no?07:39
raylu*:(, rww is a party pooper07:39
rwwraylu: yeah, I feel bad. It really was fun to read.07:39
Xullyexcuse me07:39
roccity_kaiser10123, try typing alt+f207:39
Foncyraylu, just because something people like is dumb, doesn't make them dumb.07:39
SlimGDoes Ubuntu and Firefox take advantage of a proxy.pak file served by "wpad-url" from a ISC dhcp-server?07:40
roccity_and then type xfce-panel07:40
Foncyrww, sorry, you're right ofc :)07:40
nsadminraylu, sometimes I get the feeling that women use talking to go through feeling states07:40
blah569Is there like a "wxWidgets" method for GCC to write applications for Ubuntu?07:40
Don_Miguelraylu, did   sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/perl-modules_5.8.8-12ubuntu0.3_all.deb   and   rechecked for updates, then went to  [install]  and AGAIN got  that same error message of:    E: /var/cache/apt/archives/perl-modules_5.8.8-12ubuntu0.3_all.deb: files list file for package `xulrunner-1.9-gnome-support' is missing final newline  ... so I have cleaned and updated and removed what SEEMS to be the offending file ... and I am back at square one ...07:40
rayluSlimG: Did you mean: proxy.pac iis wpad-url07:40
Don_Miguel but I am still game if you have more such good ideas ... ??07:40

maraboutleavin good night07:41
FoncySo, nsadmin, to stay ontopic... are your plugs ready for my ports, or do we have to install some packages first?07:41
rayluDon_Miguel: well, apparently, they weren't very good ideas :P. let me look into xulrunner for a moment07:41
FoncyJust kidding...07:41
HellFire-AuI have my linux box setup as a nat, gets internet connectivity through a wireless usb dongle ra0 (connected to a router) and has a single xbox 360 connected via ethernet eth0. Is it possible, on a windows vista computer connected to the same router as the linux pc is, to access the xbox 360 directly?07:42
nsadminFoncy: oh my god :) my eyes are up HERE (points)07:42
rayluDon_Miguel: aptitude -s remove xulrunner-1.9-gnome-support07:42

rayludragon33: places home folder?07:44
Barridusjinja-sheep, I also had that issue.  I believe I rectified it by deleting and recreating the partition on the USB drive with Gparted07:44
nsadminFoncy: how far did you get in your install?07:45

b1n42yraylu: eth107:45
Foncynsadmin, the windows-install you mean?07:45
rayluHellFire-Au: it may be possible using iptables/iproute, but i have no experience with that07:45
jinja-sheepBarridus:  What do you mean?  How do you place ISO on it afterward?07:45
raylub1n42y: you could try sudo dhclient eth1, or disabling and reenabling wireless in the NetworkManager applet07:45
raylujinja-sheep: huh...?07:46
HellFire-Auraylu: Cheers, i'll check that out07:46
FoncyIf I started already I wouldn't be here anymore, but installing, you know? Same machine and stuff.... :)07:46

Robbie_Crashis there a way to alias a hostname to another hostname, not its IP address? IE: I have a 25 character dynamic host that I ssh to, and I would rather be able to type "ssh home" than the full thing, but since it's a dynamic IP I can't add it by IP to /etc/hosts07:51

Seveasgood morning08:12
rwwhellhound: right-click your gnome menu and select "Edit Menus". Navigate to where the kopete entry is (probably Internet?) select it, and press "Properties". In the "Command" field in the window that appears, put the following: LDPRELOAD="stuffgoeshere" commandname goes here (i.e., the LDPRELOAD variable declaration, then a space, then the command that's already there).08:12

rayluLars: i think if you just run "xrandr", it should give you the status of your displays08:53
kaps1 Slart: I tried testdevice it shows me ext3 is there but filesystem corrupted08:53
Larsraylu, I have no idea WHY my acer isn't getting a signal08:53
CoUrPsE|DeAdraylu, Not much help sadly, :(08:53
kaps1Igramul: didnt got your question ?08:54
Robbie_CrashMaggie can you open a terminal, and cd to /mount08:54
MaggieRobbie_Crash, OK08:54
rayluRobbie_Crash: /mnt? /media?08:54
Igramulkaps1, try mounting that ext3 from a live CD. If mount fails, You can try ext3.fsck08:54
kaps1Igramul: mount fails08:55
MaggieRobbie_Crash, this is what I got bash: cd: /mount: No such file or directory08:55
Robbie_CrashSorry,  raylu is right, /mnt, not /mount.08:55
Slartkaps1: hmm.. I haven't done enough partition recoveries to feel that I can give advice at this point.. I might just as well make things worse08:55

kaps1Igramul: what is ext3.fsck ?08:58
rww!fsck | kaps108:58
ubottukaps1: fsck 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 reboot08:58
homyusb-creator exits fine but the usb-drive isn't bootable08:58
Slart!ics | Mayank, there might be some info here08:59
ubottuMayank, there might be some info here: If you want to share the internet connection of your ubuntu machine with other machines in the network see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InternetConnectionSharing - You may also use !firestarter: http://www.fs-security.com/docs/connection-sharing.php08:59
