poochieI used a kubuntu liveCD to resize a windows partition on a laptop (using gparted) so i can install kubuntu. The power was cut during the process. How can i repair/recover the partition?02:15
poochiegparted now calls it an unknown partition and I can't seem to find a way to access it02:17
bdizzleI was wondering if it was safe to use QTParted to redistribute the partitions for my windows part of my computer to shrink it from 50 GB to 40 GB so that I can put more space on my laptop?02:18
stnormalyou should probably just use windows to redistribute partitions02:20
stnormalerr, at least the windows ones02:20
bdizzleI forgot how to do that in windows, without causing it to reformat itself02:20
poochieany thoughts on recovering a messed up partition stnormal?02:21
stnormalnope, sorry02:21
stnormalhmm, I guess you can only do it if you have winXPMCE or later... vanilla XP doesn't have the resize option02:22
stnormalare you running vista or XPMCE?02:22

Taylor_MI'm getting this weird error, something about 0x72, 0x8002:27
stnormalmy pops has it on his computer, and I'm fairly certain I've managed partitions on it... I could be wrong, though... you might need Vista to resize active partitions with windows software. If you don't have Vista, maybe someone else can tell you how to resize partitions safely with gparted02:28

shadow98but i don't hear anything..but if i boot back into windows everything is fnie..04:13
ActionParsnip!sound | shadow9804:15
ubottushadow98: If you're having problems with sound, first ensure ARTS is running, by going to K Menu -> System Settings -> Sound System and making sure "Enable the sound system" is checked. If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP304:15
ActionParsnipshadow98: it works in windows as yuo have installed drivers, you need to find out what drivers the card needs in linux04:15
shadow98ActionParsnip: i don't see option for enable the sound system..04:17
ActionParsnipshadow98: if you have an onboard card as well as the soundcard, disable the onboard in bios to lessen confusion04:17
ActionParsnipshadow98: then you need to install drivers, creative cards suck at best04:18
shadow98what are the best cards04:18
ActionParsnipif you check the hcl, you may find how to configure it04:18

DoloI got ubuntu all set up after a few months of tweaking it but my new slave drive is a sata and apparently u cant make a sata a slave drive so i think im screwed and must reinstall ubuntu to the new hd and then use this one as the slave drive04:21
Dolois there any easy way to do that other than juggling 80 gigs worth of data04:22
ActionParsnipDolo: you can have any sort of drive as a slave04:23
Dolocurrent drive is ide so bios keeps booting the sata drive first04:23

Dolowhen i used to use fedora i had it installed on slave drive and windows on primary first04:29
Doloso when i installed the fc i had option to dual boot04:29
ActionParsnipDolo: thats the easiest way to do it as grub will be configured for you04:29

shadow98im going to try and upgrade the kernel...see if that helps04:30
Dolobut not sure if i need to install then entire fc or ubuntu os04:30

powertool08dilan: K menu -> System -> konsole if you don't know how to open the terminal05:50
resnosidney: sure, commands are always easiest for instruction purposes05:50
powertool08dilan: I'm using kde 3.5, if you're on kde 4 the menu might be alittle different. You can also try alt+f2 and type konsole there.05:51
powertool08dilan: Did you find it?05:52
dilanok got it. there r some vertical bars...& 2 of them r full05:52
powertool08dilan: Ok, check each one, don't move them up until red, just somewhere in the green and see if you can hear the music05:53
dilanhow can i move them up?05:53
powertool08dilan: with the arrow keys on the keyboard.05:54
dilanokay i can hear the sound but but it dropps05:55
sidneyresno: when i open the mixer in a terminal it  only has one bar05:55

dilanokay..................guys got it. it works fine now. thanks a million05:58

wizardslovakcan i use my kubuntu system as server to share files btw 2 xp desktops with router?05:59
powertool08dilan: Ok you need to save the settings or it may revert back to the way it was after a reboot05:59
resnowizardslovak: yes, you need to set up samba shares05:59
wizardslovaksamba is for that isnt it? will i be able to see files in XPs true my kubuntu?05:59
resnowizardslovak: samaba will make it look like another windows share06:00

resnopowertool08: i am trying to install this program: Songbird_1.0.0-860_linux-i686.tar.gz how do i unzip(gunzip) and install it?06:03
wizardslovakresno did u use apt-get first?06:03
resnoyes i have the app on my achine wizardslovak06:03
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about cifs06:04
powertool08resno: It's not in the repo's I take it? Installing from source is the least preferred option as it doesn't do dependency handling like the package managers06:05
wizardslovakok people i am oout for today06:06
wizardslovakgood night06:06
resnopowertool08: problem is its not in the repos.06:06
resnowizardslovak: night.06:06
wizardslovakone more think06:06
wizardslovakhow to install from fource?06:06
dilangot another problem....i accidenty removed the task bar how can i get it back?06:06
resnopowertool08: its songbird. from the people that mozilla, their sound player06:06
powertool08resno: But if that is the only option, tar xjfv? check tar -h I forget what each switch does, you will need one or more of those but not all. Anyway, tar -xjfv Songbird_...i686.tar.gz and it will extract to a folder in whatever directory you are currently in, there's an option to extract elsewhere, again, check tar -h.06:07
wizardslovaki forgot everything about linux06:08
wizardslovaki ment source06:08
ubottuYou can easily fetch a package's source with apt-get. See: http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/apt-howto/ch-sourcehandling.en.html06:08
powertool08dilan: alt+f2 type kicker and ok/enter06:08
dilanit didn't work06:09
powertool08resno: then cd into the directory you just created by extracting, it may have an install script, if so then "./install_script_name" or "sh install_script_name"06:09
powertool08dilan: are you using kde 3.5 or kde 4?06:09
wizardslovakok ill plray tomorrow with source packages06:09
powertool08resno: Also the script may not be set to executable, if not "chmod +x install_script_name"06:10
resnopowertool08: ok, its more complex then i want to deal with at this late hour.06:10
resnoi am quite tired and have work in the am.06:11
powertool08resno: If there isn't an install script then use "./configure" when that finishes then "make" then when that finishes "sudo make install"06:11
powertool08resno: I like to chain them all together with && between each command, that way if configure or make fails then it won't waste time trying to install when it won't work anyway06:11
resnopowertool08: haha ok.06:12
powertool08resno: Ok, its not quite as hard as it sounds, unless it doesn't configure or make properly, then its a true PITA06:12
resnoi just searched and found a script to install it powertool0806:14
powertool08resno: Awesome, scripts are easy, just check that its executable, you can do that with ls -l and you get something like rwrwx or some variation, if it has the x then you're good to go, if not use the chmod +x command.06:15
dilansomeone please tell me how to get my taskbar back06:16
powertool08dilan: Which version of kde are you running?06:16

dilani've right clicked it & removed it06:25
powertool08dilan: Ok, run "sudo aptitude reinstall kicker"06:26
powertool08dilan: Let me know when that finishes running.06:28
dilani can't type my password06:28

powertool08sidney: No its not.06:29
powertool08sidney: If you want to edit fstab the use sudo nano /etc/fstab06:30
powertool08dilan: Is it rejecting the password or just not letting you type it?06:30
sidneypowertool08: thanks06:30
dilandoesn't let me to type it06:30
powertool08dilan: It doesn't show the characters or stars as you type. When it prompts for the password type it as usual, you won't see anything change though, then press enter.06:31

sidneyfrom where do i get the server name06:43
powertool08What server name?06:44
sidneypowertool08: i need to add this line //servername/sharename  /media/mountname  cifs  guest,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8,codepage=unicode,unicode  0  006:45
powertool08sidney: You were using samba right? //servername is the name of the computer you're trying to connect to, so whatever your XP/Vista machine is named, sharename would be the folder you're sharing on the Windows machine06:46

xp-killerhelp!i download a torent and azureus open it and azureus went in a language i dont understand look like japanees i tink06:55
powertool08Have any japanese reading friends?06:56
xp-killerlol dont need that06:56
xp-killeri just need someone who has azureus install06:56
xp-killerto tell me where to go  to change the language06:56
xp-killeru tool06:57
powertool08xp-killer: I think the quickest solution might be to reinstall with "sudo aptitude reinstall azureus" in a terminal06:57
powertool08I don't use azureus so I don't know the menu layout06:57
sidneypowertool08: i i'm not real sure where to start these websites are real general. They seem to be for people that already have a knowledge of linux commands and terms06:58
xp-killerpowertool08: then install it i can bear to lose my 3 gig download already past half way06:58
powertool08sidney: What part do you not understand?06:58
powertool08xp-killer: I'd do a google search, find out where it stores download pieces, move the file, reinstall, then move it back. Although I don't think it would overwrite that folder, just the program files06:59
xp-killerno chances07:00
xp-killeri rather ask google where to change the language07:00
powertool08xp-killer: ok07:00
sidneypowertool08: is not the mountname the same as the share name? I read for an hour then it ask for something i never expected07:00
powertool08sidney: No, the sharename is the folder you are sharing on your windows machine, the mountname is where you are mounting it locally07:01
sidneyi suppose it's looking for a paththe linux computer is the mount07:02
powertool08sidney: Yes, the mountname can be anywhere on your local linux machine, you choose where you want it to show up, as long as the folder exists you shouldn't have any problems07:03

ubottueigentard: sigh... again? I'm busy here, I already told you it failed.07:07
resnohello all again. i just cant put down the computer, i was intending to go all linux, but wine doesnt fully support my program.  is it possible to dual boot with xp and keep this current install?07:15
powertool08resno: Yes, look at GParted, if the linux partition takes 100% of the disk you have to have some free space on the partition, shrink it, then create a new partition and install windows, then windows will overwrite grub so you have to reinstall grub and add windows to the boot list07:17
=== rob is now known as Guest89263
resnopowertool08: ok, thats what my question was focused on. i know windows can be a hog and wont play friendly.07:18
powertool08resno: Windows prefers to be installed first and as the first partition on the disk, you can install it second and on other partitions, it just adds steps to the process07:19
resnopowertool08: yea, i wasnt intending to do it this way, but linux kinda took over the drive.07:19
powertool08resno: lol, Linux knows what's best for you07:19
resnobut linux kinda ran over my windows install07:20
resnopowertool08: yea... i guess so07:20
powertool08resno: Really? How did you install? wubi?07:20
resnonah.. off a live cd.07:20
resnopowertool08: i messed up somewhere, i got an error msg and thought by going back it would fix it... nope07:21
powertool08resno: Odd, I've never had that happen to me, although I don't normally do the 3 click do it all for me setup, I like to do a manual install and change partitions and mountpoints07:21
resnopowertool08: oh, it worked fine on my work computer, of course the one where iwanted to keep stuff it all blows up07:22
powertool08resno: hmm, sorry.07:22
resnopowertool08: how do i go about installing grub?07:22
ubottuGRUB is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - GRUB how-tos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto07:22
resnoheh... simple enough07:22
resnook, thanks again powertool08 i am realling heading to bed now07:23
powertool08resno: factoids are awesome when you know the right keyword. I've picked up a few over the months of being in channels07:23
powertool08resno: Ok, goodnight07:23
joshua__does anyone know anything about wallpaper tray?07:31
powertool08What is wallpaper tray?07:32
joshua__changes wallpaper automatically07:34
powertool08joshua__: What's the problem with it?07:35
ubottulilo is an alternative [Li]nux Boot[Lo]ader. Note: it is recommended that you use GRUB on Ubuntu instead.07:35
MisterFlibbleI'd recommend LILO because it's not retarded and can boot a XFS partition07:36
powertool08Most people don't use XFS though07:36
MisterFlibbleI don't believe GRUB will ever be fixed, it boots Ext3 and Ext4 and thats really all they care about07:36
zbyszekhi folk07:37
joshua__i downloaded the latest versiion07:37
joshua__and i tried to compile it07:37
joshua__and its not working07:37
powertool08MisterFlibble: could you not make the boot partition ext and everything else XFS?07:37
joshua__i ran the command ./configure07:38
zbyszekas usual07:38
MisterFlibbleI gave up on GRUB after trying to use it once, it sees /boot on an XFS partition and all you get is "GRUB GRUB GRUB GRUB GRUB......." scrolling down the screen07:38
joshua__and make install07:38
joshua__and nothing07:38
MisterFlibblepowertool08: Yes, you can, and then you can mount / as XFS07:38
powertool08joshua__: Its in the repos, just sudo apt-get wallpaper-tray and there's no need to compile07:38
MisterFlibblebut Ubuntu doesn't like to remove old kernels automatically, so that's why I usually tell people to use Ext3, cause Ubuntu will happily stockpile old Linux boot images til the partition fills up07:39
MisterFlibbleand then it gets a little cranky07:39
powertool08MisterFlibble: true, I've got about 4 in mine right now, everytime I reboot I remember I should clean it up, then I don't do it immediately and forget07:40
MisterFlibbleI found that out at one point when Was using Edgy Eft and wondered where all my disk space was07:40
joshua__that only gives me an older version07:40
joshua__4.4 or something07:40
MisterFlibbleturns out I had kernels from Dapper and Breezy too07:40
MisterFlibbleand every time I got a patch that installed a new kernel :P07:40
MisterFlibbleUbuntu *really* needs to do what Fedora does, and rig it to only keep the active kernel and your last two before that07:41
powertool08joshua__: Is there a feature you're wanting in the newest one that the repo version doesn't have? If the repo version does the job you need it for, I'd go that way because it will find updates eventually, when installing from source its up to you to remember to update it07:41
MisterFlibblethat way. the system cleans itself up and the user never needs to be any the wiser07:42
powertool08MisterFlibble: I'd like that07:42
chris_hello. after having used intrepid for a while, i have switched back to hardy on my dell xps m1530. i wanna go back to intrepid (nvidia has released new drivers, finally), but i used to sometimes get a blank display after start-up, sometimes it would beep (through the soundcard, not speakers!) terribly, then start or not (remain blank). sometimes it would also go blank, but the x server would work, while the consoles do not (i'm pretty sure07:42
chris_they work, they are just not visible). has anybody ever experienced such a thing?07:42
MisterFlibblepowertool08: I set a CRON job to make a defragmentation pass on my main volume every day B-)07:43
MisterFlibbleCRON is really pretty nifty07:43
joshua__how do i update?07:43
powertool08MisterFlibble: awesome, but I thought you don't really need to defrag with journaling fs07:44
powertool08joshua__: sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude safe-upgrade07:44
MisterFlibblepowertool08: Thats a myth, nobody ever bothered to write a defrag tool for Ext3, doesn't mean it doesn't fragment07:44
powertool08joshua__: or you can go through the K menu and find adept updater if you prefer07:44
MisterFlibbleit fragments more slowly than something like NTFS, but it still gets slower after months or years07:45
powertool08MisterFlibble: ahh07:45
MisterFlibblepowertool08: You can mount an Ext3 volume as Ext2 and run e2defrag, but it destroys the Ext3 journal07:45
MisterFlibbleThey're making an e4defrag to take care of Ext4 volumes07:45
powertool08MisterFlibble: so what happens when you destroy the journal? Will it rebuild on next boot?07:46
joshua__im using gnome07:46
powertool08joshua__: Oh, the aptitude command will still work, I forget what gnome named the updater, you can ask in #ubuntu if you want the gui07:47
insmodanyone know if they solved the issue with ID 0ac8:307b Z-Star Microelectronics Corp. USB 1.1 WebCam -- it uses the zc3xx07:47
MisterFlibblepowertool08: You risk destroying all data on the volume07:47
powertool08MisterFlibble: Excellent!07:47
MisterFlibbleso the de facto way to defrag Ext3 is to tar the partition and then make a new Ext3 file system (formatting)07:48
MisterFlibblethen untar everything from the backup07:48
powertool08MisterFlibble: haha, well I don't think my /home is ext3, can't rememeber.... and I upgraded with hardy so I'm not too worried about fragmentation yet07:49
insmod<MisterFlibble>no need to defrag in linux07:49
MisterFlibbleit's why I never use Ext3, it's disk management tools are a joke, Ext4 will fix that though07:49
joshua__when i tried to install wallpapoz it got size mismatch error... what is that?07:49
MisterFlibbleExt3 is painfully slow, and you can't defrag it07:49
powertool08joshua__: I have no idea, I suggest google and #ubuntu, its typically more active than here.07:50
MisterFlibbleXFS is the best choice usually07:50
chris_MisterFlibble: try reiserfs then. or jfs, xfs, etc.07:50
=== desti_T2 is now known as desti
insmod<MisterFlibble>no need to defrag in linux07:50
powertool08LOL! reiserfs kills your wife though...07:50
MisterFlibbleHans Resier is in prison for murdering his wife, JFS has one guy working on it part time07:51
MisterFlibbleinsmod: Yeah tere is07:51
insmod<MisterFlibble> ah no07:51
chris_MisterFlibble: see, some conversations have to go a predefined path07:51
powertool08chris_: http://valleywag.gawker.comhttp://valleywag.gawker.com/385449/murderer+developed-file-systems-introduce-new-features/385449/murderer+developed-file-systems-introduce-new-features07:51
MisterFlibbleThat must be why there's a defrag utility that ships with Ext407:51
MisterFlibbleand XFS07:51
chris_who cares?07:51
insmodMisterFlibble: I have been using it since 1996 and never had to07:51
chris_you want a filesystem or what?07:52
insmodMisterFlibble: that;s more for looks then anything07:52
powertool08chris_: well regardless of the wife killing, theres a decent chance it won't be maintained as well as before the wife killing.07:52
MisterFlibblechris_: I know there were some former Namesys employees maintaining Reiser407:52
chris_reiserfs is pretty well maintained i think07:52
insmodMisterFlibble: dosen't do very much -- not noticeable07:52
MisterFlibbleyou can use Reiser4 in Ubuntu, but you must patch the kernel07:53
chris_reiser4 seems to be pretty stable, but patching the kernel can be a bitch07:53
MisterFlibbleevery time you get an update :P07:53
chris_that too07:53
MisterFlibbleor you can ignore Ubuntu kernels and jsut make your own with Reiser4 included from the kernel.org sources07:54
MisterFlibblebut no telling how that could go07:54
chris_ther is a how-to on the forums for compiling your own kernel. it's pretty good07:55
MisterFlibbleUbuntu doesn't even include most of the packages you need to build a kernel07:55
MisterFlibbleso you'd have to download like 200+ megs of packages to get the tools you need07:55
chris_i'd doubt that07:55
MisterFlibblethe G++ package was like 50 megs all by itself07:56
chris_ubuntu doesn't include almost anything to compile your own stuff by default. why should it?07:56
powertool08chris_: in case you need it? what if you don't have access to the internet to download from the repos but need to compile something?07:57
MisterFlibblechris_: Well, they have to stay on one 700 meg CD image, so that means they naturally have to triage things by what fits and what they need07:57
chris_powertool08: get the dvd then. i think it's in there07:58
MisterFlibblechris_: I did :)07:58
MisterFlibbleLiveCDs bother me, they have all kinds of crap you don't want, and miss lots of stuff you do07:58
MisterFlibblebut I believe they call that "sensible defaults", no two people want the same packages07:59
MisterFlibbleso they take their best guess at what most people want07:59
powertool08Its against my argument of needing something in case you don't have internet, but I think that Ubuntu should have a net install (I haven't seen it if it does) like Arch, that way after the install you are 100% up to date and don't have to get all the updates since the cd was made.07:59
MisterFlibblethe LiveCD is pretty useless if you have a system without the Internet08:00
MisterFlibblebut you can go through packages.ubuntu.com on a system that does and store the packages on some kind of physical media08:00

ZehavaI have a setup in my /var/www where index and portal are both in there at the same time.  How can I tell the server to start with portal.php instead of index.php so when peopel go to the site they get the portal first?14:47
ionut_does anyone knows how can i install new extensions on dekiwiki14:50
ActionParsnipZehava: symlink it14:52
ZehavaActionParsnip I'm still fairly new to linux.  how would I do that?14:54
Zehavasudo ln -s /var/www/portal.php14:55
ionut_who knows a software with which i can make a subtitle for a mouvie14:57
ActionParsnipZehava: cd /var/www; sudo ln -s ./portal.php ./index.php15:04
ActionParsnipZehava: the files will appear identical but there is only 1 real file, the other is a link, if you edit te link in a text file the system will show you the text15:05

Zehavahaving trouble with my website again.  it was directing people to the index.php and I wanted portal.php to start first.  So I added the symlink to make the portal.php look like index.php and now I can't access the forum at all15:26
Zehavawhen I click the link to go to index.php it still sends me back to portal.php15:26
=== brent_ is now known as BrentDC
trappistZehava: how do you even still have an index.php if there's a symlink there?15:31
ZehavaI have index.php and portal.php both real files inside the /var/www directory15:31
ZehavaI need the server to default to portal.php first instead of index.php15:32
trappistwhat's the symlink?15:32
Zehavait is right now ln -s ./portal.php ./index.php15:32
Zehavaso it defaults to portal now, but when I click the link to take me to index, it still goes back to portal15:32
trappistthat would make index.php a symlink not a real file15:32
Zehavaright so it wont' read the real file at all?15:32
trappistyou can't have a symlink and a real file of the same name in the same place at the same time15:33
=== ubuntu_ is now known as Joschi
trappistnot sure which you have, but based on how it's behaving it sounds like it's the symlink15:33
Zehavayes it is15:33
Moryddafter upgrading to intrepid, digikam no longer launches when I connect my camera. Any ideas how to correct this?15:33
trappistso, first you need an index.php :)15:33
Zehavaif I remove the ./index symlink completely it shows on the browser my files instead of showing the portal15:33
ZehavaI have an index.php15:33
Zehavait's just in another sub directory15:34
trappistbut it's a symlink15:34
ZehavaI want the ./portal to show up first15:34
trappistthen your link to index.php needs to point into that subdirectory15:34
trappistlike <a href="/foo/index.php">15:34
Zehavaright, but how do I get the server to show the protal.php still?15:35
Zehavacause right now, with no symlink to index.php it just shows the file directory15:35
trappistwait, symlink *to* index.php?15:35
trappistby default, the server should look for a file (or symlink) called index.php... *in the requested directory*15:36
ZehavaI did this "sudo rm ./index.php15:37
trappistso you'll get index.php (which points to portal.php) in your root directory, if that's what you're talking about, and if you have an index.php in a subdir called foo, that's what you should get if you go to http://yoursite/foo/15:37
Zehavaand now when I go to the url it shows me the file directory15:37
Zehavaokay I'll work on that, thanks15:37
trappistwell yeah.  that's what was taking you to portal.php.15:37
=== ek_ is now known as ek
Netzirou could make a index.php with Header linked on portal.php15:38
Netziro2 lines of code15:38
trappistNetziro: yeah but that would generate additional requests, eat up additional bandwidth, make the page take longer to load15:39
tboxmyhow do i know whats the glibc2 version installed?15:39
jussi01tboxmy: apt-cache policy package15:40
ZehavaI'm trying to find the real index.php right now15:40
NetziroYes, of course. but an header will forward request to new page... so the additional requests will be only on the first time15:40
Netziroisn't an include :)15:41
tboxmyjussi01: I tried but got W: Unable to locate package glibc215:41
tboxmymy apps need glibc 2.3.2 to run15:42
Zehavawell crud, I don't know what the old index.php pointed to15:42
NetziroZehava: show me the dir three of this site15:44
ZehavaI cannot find the forum index.php page at all right now15:45
Zehavanow that I removed the index.php symlink that was originally here15:45
Netziroare u sure old original index.php was a symlink or a real file?15:46
Zehavaprobably a real file that I removed15:46
Zehavanot sure15:47
Zehavaif it was a real file my rm statment would have removed it, so I'm putting it back now15:47
Moryddafter upgrading to intrepid, digikam no longer launches when I connect my camera. Any ideas how to correct this?15:48
Zehavaso, once I have both portal.php and index.php the real files in the directory, how can I tell the server to default to portal.php instead of index.php?15:48
Netziroindex.php contains lines of code?15:50
PiciZehava: Like I said in #ubuntu, this is really an Apache issue that the folks in #apache should be able to help you with quickly.15:50
Zehavayes, it is a real file, and right now, if I go to portal.php it still sends me to the index.php15:50
Zehavapici they at apache told me to alter a file I don't even have15:51
PiciZehava: Which file?15:51
Netzirou have to make it15:51
ZehavaI don't have that file inside this directory15:51
PiciZehava: You need to create that file.15:51
blauzahlhttp://bugs.kde.org/180147 <---is this something typical or is it a problem on their side? ie what useful thing can i tell this person15:52
Pici.htaccess files are optional15:52
Zehavaand I tried that, and I created one and it told me I didn't have access to index.php when I tried to go to my site in browser15:52
Zehavaokay I'll go try there some more, thanks for the help15:52
Netzirou have to write in Options -Indexes -MultiViews -FollowSymlinks15:53
Netziro    AllowOverride None15:54
Netziro    Order allow,deny15:54
Netziro    Allow from all15:54
Zehavais it possible to remove a symlink without removing the file it's self if there is both?15:57
Zehavanever mind15:57

Dr_willisi dident think dolphin mounted  the smb shares.. it sort of browsed them16:14

max06hm... dolphin shows me up all possible shares16:14
max06when i click them, it asks for username and password...16:14
Dr_willisits showing the shares... but access one and check the 'mount' command in a terminal16:14
Dr_willisaccessing them is not always 'mounting' them.16:15

veryhappyi just have the question how can i make a minimal installation16:36
Dr_willisa Pent 3 can be a ok file server.   There are server install disks at the ubuntu download sites..16:36
veryhappyand should i use xdm as minimal gui?16:37
Dr_willisor use a normal insatll. and just dont start up X.  if you want to occasinally go into X to congireu stuff you still have the option16:37
Dr_willisxdm is a login manaager. its not the GUI itself. it uses X16:37

JontheEchidnawesley: ubuntu sees the right device17:17
wesleyor Linux just uses the wrong drivers, because i hear most peopl using i810, but some intel gma´s are better then the other17:17
JontheEchidna945GC is the shortened name, with 82945G/GZ being the long name17:17
JontheEchidnaso your bug is about performance?17:18
wesleyif you look to the osx benchmark on the same machine, then you see cleary better performance, so i am wondering, can it be that there is a bug in xorg preventing that intel gma performance good17:19
wesleyor is it kwin ?17:20
JontheEchidnais it slow with desktop effects off?17:20
wesleythe same performance in glx gears, but, ofcourse no repainting when desktop effects is switched off17:21

JontheEchidnawesley: I'd change the title to something about the drivers being slow, and changing the package affected to xserver-xorg-video-intel17:23
wesleywhat i see is that kwin needs to repaint the windows, so you see a sec or maby its a fraction of a sec a white screen, and then you see the sreeen17:23

Chris`Hello I am experiencing issues with installing Kubuntu from a live iso partition. Atm I am running from the partition and I can mount the other partitions but "Install" cannot recognise the harddisk at all. It just returns blank info with no partitions or harddisks. How can I fix this?18:35
wesleyDr_willis, acer one is ofcourse less powerfull then a atom 33018:36
wesleybut i doesnt ubuntu run on it then ?18:36
Dr_willisUbuntu  runs on it. :)  been testing out all sorts of live disrtos18:36
ubuntu_Dr_willis: exactly18:36
ubuntu_I'm desperate18:36
ubuntu_is not my own computer18:36
Dr_willisGeexbox, Puppy,  SliTaz, TinyCore18:37
Dr_willisubuntu_,  if you want windows to boot normally. Use your windows cd's and the proper  commands to fix the mbr/boot records.18:37
ubuntu_Dr_willis: I have tried everything on the windows side, but with no luck18:39
ubuntu_Dr_willis: How can I do it on linux? at least be able to boot grub without the external drive18:39
Dr_willisThen you dident do it right..  Ive restored the windows boot loader  a dozen times from varioyus windows cd's18:39
wesleyDr_willis, ive installed on my nettop windows 7, so those atoms are fairly strong18:39
Dr_willisTo boot grub - you would need the grub files somewhere on the normal hard drive18:39
Dr_willisie; a /boot/ partition on the hard drive somewhere.18:40
Dr_willisOR you dont install grub to the hd's mbr. but to the usb drives MBR and tellthe bios to boot that.. that way you leave windows alone18:40
Dr_willisbut the live-cd-installer can not do that. I think only the alternative installer cd can do that18:40

mooglinuxlogged into the 4.2 beta, and things had been working good, but i am without sound in amarok.22:20
mooglinuxrecieved an error message about my sound device not working22:20
mooglinuxpidgin does, however, make its notification noises. so somethings bugged out on me22:21
Tm_Tmooglinux: see your phonon settings22:23
mooglinuxwhere are those located? in multimedia under system settings?22:24
Tm_Tmooglinux: yes22:24
mooglinuxok i have a number of output devices here. pulseaudio, esound, and three nvidia ones22:25
jacobw-ukhi there, how do i uninstall all the dependencies of the kubuntu-desktop package?22:25
jacobw-uki don't think i can manage kde and gnome on the same system that computer illerates have to use also :s22:25
Dr_willisso they pick what desktop to use at login.. whats so hard about that?22:26
KomiaPoikajacobw-uk: so what GUI is for computer illiterates?22:26
Tm_T!puregnome | jacobw-uk22:26
ubottujacobw-uk: If you want to remove all !KDE packages, type « sudo apt-get remove kdelibs4c2 ; sudo apt-get remove kdelibs5 ; sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop »22:26
jacobw-ukKomiaPoika: well I've taught them to use GNOME and I don't want to confuse them *cough* irritate them *cough*22:27
Dr_willisTheres too many handy kde apps to limit yourself to just gnome22:27
Dr_willisset them up to use gnome by default and let them go at it..22:28
jacobw-ukyeah for me there is. but for very basic users who already know how to use gnome thats not a significent factor to warrant time and effort into changing it22:28
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about netbook22:28
jacobw-ukunfortunately kde and gnome menus have a habit of colliding.22:28
jacobw-ukand also i want to start using the jaunty alphas on a seperate partition ;)22:29
mooglinuxunder gnome you can edit the menus easily enough22:29
Dr_willisYou can never dumb things down enough, eventually the users have to put forth some effort and learn the tools they have.22:29
sd32help, all  my entry fields in windows are half size,how can i get them back to normal?22:29
jacobw-ukDr_willis: yeah they can in the future if they want of their own accord22:29
bastid_raZorusing k3b i notice i'm missing some of the external programs k3b uses to work properly. eMovix is the only package or packages that would contain eMovix..22:29
Dr_willisive never had emovix actually work. :)22:30
Dr_willisNot tried it in ages however22:30
ubottuIf you want to remove all !KDE packages, type « sudo apt-get remove kdelibs4c2 ; sudo apt-get remove kdelibs5 ; sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop »22:30
bastid_raZorDr_willis; what is it for?22:30
Dr_willisbastid_raZor,  it lets you make a bootable dvd I think that has an embeded movie player.22:30
Dr_willisat least  i think thats what it did at one time22:31
kereshow do you do italicized text in konversation?'22:31
bastid_raZorDr_willis; okay. i won't be needing something like that. thanks.22:31
jacobw-ukthe one thing that really annoys me about gnome is the lack of a good clipboard system22:32
Dr_willisnever noticed. :)22:32
jacobw-ukso annoying to close an app and its data disappear of the clipboard22:32
Dr_willisi tend to install glipper/klipper22:32
Dr_willisthats a spcific gnome bug from what i hear.22:33
jacobw-ukDr_willis: hmm if it is a bug its very long running one22:35
mooglinuxi reordered the sound devices and put one that does work at the top, but amarok still isnt giving me sound22:37
mooglinuxi tried closing and reopening amarok but that didnt do it. what gives?22:37
bastid_raZorDr_willis; considering i have all the rest it asks for, what else might i need to be able to burn mp3's to a cd? it claims it needs them to be in wave format.22:39
bastid_raZorDr_willis; i seem to remember in the past that i was able to just drag them down and it would convert them on the fly.. i may be mistake but i thought it was possible22:40
realmattis there a way to have my laptop speakers cut off when I plug in my headphones?  It works automatially in Vista but I can't seem to get it to work in Ubuntu22:40
Dr_willisFor k3b? Theres some  addon you must install.. It used to be listed in the kubuntu faq page I recall.22:43
Dr_willisKubuntu-restricted-extras package may include the package22:43
bastid_raZori run gnome and have ubuntu-restricted-extras .. would that be the same? i just have a few KDE apps i use since gnome lacks in a few places.22:45
mooglinuxive got no sound in amarok, but i changed the order of sound devices to put working ones on top. i have sound in pidgin22:45
Dr_willisubuntu-restricted-extras and kubuntu-restricted-extras have some overlap in what they install.. but each installs some stuff the other does not22:47
Dr_willisI always install both - Since i use gnome and kde.22:47
bastid_raZorokay, will do.22:47
bastid_raZorthe kubuntu-restricted-extras is the key. it now works fine. thanks Dr_willis22:48
Dr_willisI got a little script of like 10-20 things i always install on a clean install :)22:48
Dr_willisubuntu-restricted-extras and kubuntu-restricted-extras are like #122:48
mooglinuxim on the latest build of 4.2 and i logged in and got a message that my sound device didnt work. i switched to a different one in the settings but amarok is still not playing any sounds. pidgin, however, has worked the entire time (alert sounds)22:52
draikI'm using Firefox 3.0.5. I don't know what is happening, but it keeps on sending/receiving https requests to Google. I don't have to even be at a Google site. I go to MySpace and it is still happening. It happens only in Firefox. Am I missing something?22:53
Dr_willisad images comming from google servers?22:55
Dr_willisor google specific extensions22:56
Dr_willishow are you even detecting that its doing this?22:56
khakaneif i already have a system loaded on a HD, and i want to add a 2nd hard drive and setup linux raid, is that possible? or will i need to reload server?22:57
Dr_willisDepends on the raid setup i imagine22:57
ubotturaid is Tips and tricks for RAID and LVM can be found on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID wto and http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO - For software RAID, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto22:57
khakaneit will just be a RAID122:57
khakanebut like i know it will change from like /dev/sda to /dev/md0 or whatever22:58
draikDr_willis: I don't even go to Google and it happens.23:00
draikI used WireShark to check the connection.23:00
Dr_willisgoogle servers also serve up a lot of ad images.. and some sites  work with google to get ad/other stuff also.23:00
Dr_willisso a image from bubba.com may be comming from google somewhere23:01
