komiesHey guys. My ubuntu pc has been doing some weird things recently... firefox crashes easily, and it no longer has a record of my bookmarks. xchat suddenly deleted all my colours, and in pidgin, I can see a list of user logs but not the actual logs. any insight?00:02
unlinkowh: what do those Option "monitor-*" lines do?00:02
n8tuserl7 -> i suggested a solution, if you dont want it, then suffer the issues you are having00:02
owhunlink: They provide resolutions/bit depths00:02
owhunlink: Note that each has a virtual entry.00:02
unlinkowh: i mean inside of your "Device" section00:02
ljkjkjwhich software can i use for streaming  hd videos from my server?00:03
unlinkit says         Option    "monitor-VGA"     "External VGA"00:03
pentasideI have an ATI Radeon x1200 and I'm running 8.10.  Whenever I try to play any sort of "fullscreen" game, the graphics are all over the place.  I tried to find x1200 Linux drivers, couldn't find any.  So, I'm just using whatever came with Intrepid.  Any ideas?00:03
Jack_Sparrowkomies, Used any unsupported repos or added things manually.00:03
n8tusermarabout_ -> there should be an equivalent command to show the route on a mac00:03
Jack_Sparrowpentaside, HAve you tried with compiz effects turned off00:03
komiesJack_Sparrow: no, the only things i've installed in months are fromt he automatic updates00:03
owhunlink: They give names to the various monitors.00:04
pentasideJack_Sparrow: I think so... but let's try... hold please.00:04
marabout_n8tuser:  yeah i forgot it I think it is something .local but I cant remember00:04
owhunlink: The Intel card has an internal name for them, but they're not really human readable.00:04
Jack_Sparrowkomies, sudo apt-get install pastebinit  && cat /etc/apt/sources.list | pastebinit (Provide Pastebin link in channel)00:04
n8tusermarabout_ -> i am not a mac user, so you have to dig up the info from google00:04
Sh0rtKillergot2think.org00:05
komiesis this the link you're looking for, Jack_Sparrow?  http://us.archive.ubuntu.com hardy/universe pastebinit 0.9-0ubuntu100:06
unlinkowh: all right, i was able to author an xorg.conf that maintains the status quo of the aticonf generated one : http://paste.ubuntu.com/102451/00:06
unlinkowh: but it doesn't actually fix the dead space issue00:06
pentasideJack_Sparrow: No.  Same results when Visual Effects are set to "None".00:07
Jack_Sparrowpentaside, just a thought00:07
marabout_n8tuser:  yeah working on that right now  but I think the nature of the problem is this file that I was dealing with:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/102452/  - disregard the "this"00:08
komiesis there some kind of system rollback feature i can use?00:08

marabout_n8tuser:  i did this first: " sudo vim /etc/avahi/services/afpd.service" then tried to copy and paste what I sent you into that file. I have a hunch that it did not work - gave you the ubuntu machine IP still working on the mac IP00:10

workingchairHey guys, I'm thinking about migrating over to Ubuntu from XP, but I had a question.  I have my main desktop that I use, and I have an older box that just sits in my closet.  Currently on my XP machine, I have a dual monitor setup.  I am wondering if it would be easy to setup Ubuntu to work on my dual screen box, and then have a "headless" windows box with my older desktop that is currently not in use?00:11
n8tuserDante123 -> you can cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf  > newfile  :P00:11
comutamikehi guys - is this the place to ask about Launchpad Blueprints?00:11
owhunlink: Looks like it's using the maximum possible. I'd google that for a bit. Something like "ati virtual desktop size"00:12
kroffensadmin: i dont understand this :S00:12
mcarterHello00:12
kroffensadmin, what is sd*?00:12
n8tuserl7 did my suggestion worked?00:13
nsadminworkingchair dunno what use a headless window box could be,,, but sure, if the hardware is supported by the linux kernel ubuntu installs, it should work fine... otoh, you can also have the ubuntu box headless00:13
owhunlink: I'll be back in a bit, have to restart X :)00:13
mcarterI installed upstart on an ubuntu 7.10 machine, and it stopped booting. I started up the machine with a livecd and mounted my harddrive, but I don't know what config files to change to get rid of upstart. Any ideas?00:13
ljkjkjn8tuser--> icecast2 is music only, isn't it?00:13
Wolfey74What is the command in terminal to upgrade to 8.10 (I have the alternative install CD)00:13

angiehuh?00:15
angiein xconfig?00:15
BlueEagleangie: in /etc/X11/xorg.conf00:15
Wolfey74Anyone have any idea how to upgrade inside Ubuntu 7.04 if I have an 8.10 Alternative Install CD?00:15
angiewtf00:15
workingchairnsadmin, I like using Ubuntu mainly.  It's just that I want to still have windows to use things like iTunes to sync my iPhone, etc.00:16
angieBlueEagle: i dunno if u understand so ill just explain again00:16
angieBlueEagle: im trying to get gresec kernel00:16
kitcheWolfey74: you don't you boot the alternative cd and upgrade from that00:16
angieBlueEagle: so i got the vanilla source and the gresec patch and entered make xconfig00:16
angieBlueEagle: i built the kernel and got nvidia errors00:16
Wolfey74Kitche: I can't, it has be define my dev/cdrom/ but I don't know the path00:16
JeruvyWolfey74: you'll need to dist-upgrade to 8.04 then 8.1000:16
angieBlueEagle: how do i set up nvidia support in my make-xconfig so gresec kernel compiles?00:16
ljkjkjany other suggestions for hd video streaming (m2ts)?00:16
BlueEagleangie: Oh, then I did misunderstand.00:17
Wolfey74Jeruvy: Can't, my dist-upgrade is frigged up, I just want to do a clean install to 8.10 with this CD00:17
angiei guess so00:17
BlueEagleangie: What you need to do is to re-install the nVidia driver after booting with your custom kernel iirc.00:17
sudobashso i just did a apt-get upgrade and it set my resolution back down to 800x600... Why does this happen all the time?00:18
comutamikei got a question. I submitted a blueprint to launchpad, but I am unsure what to do next.00:18

angieFloodBot1: yea thx im done now00:19
Jeruvysudobash: my understanding is that the .conf files get updated, so if you backed up your xorg.conf files you should be able to quickly restore them, but you should move the settings from the old file to the new one manually.00:19
Wolfey74How can I findout what driver my CDRom is using in /dev/?00:20

sudobashi shouldnt have to backup before doing a sudo apt-get upgrade but I mean I understand backing it up if you are going to edit it in any way but apt should back it up automatically00:20
JeruvyWolfey74: lspci00:20

Grellits odd that there is no option to do this00:22

marabout_n8tuser:  ubuntu machine is 192.168.1.90 mac is 68.209.4.20800:23
workingchairnsadmin, http://www.nsa.gov/00:23
Exposuresudobash: are you sure your resolution problems are caused by xorg.conf?00:23
Laurent1Hi everyone ! I'm runing Intrepid on my IMAC INTEL. Wifi is not starting when I log on to Gnome, but if I run "if up" in a terminal, wireless is working fine. Would anyone have an idea on how I can automate this ?00:23
Jeruvysudobash: it's a decent idea you have, however it's not so black and white.  launchpad.net has numerous bugs about various 'upgrading' issues00:23
sudobashyes the resolution entries i had in there are missing... NVIDIA00:23
sudobashso i am pretty sure i can go more than 800x60000:23
sudobashunless it is a driver issue which i doubt00:24
nsadminangie: I don't work for NSA... but in USA, you can have a PSA about RSA...00:24
sudobashbut i have seen Nvidia drivers issues before in Ubuntu00:24
sudobashso it is plausible00:24
Exposuresudobash: well why not use nvidia-settings or something then, no need for res entries in xorg.conf i think00:24
n8tusermarabout_ -> unless you have a route in your 68.209.4.208 to get to the 192.168.1.90 address, then your setup will not work,  try to read up on networking tutorial about route to dest and back from dest00:24
sudobashit doesnt show hardly anything00:24
Exposuresudobash: it's more plausible that driver is causing the issue than a wrong xorg.conf, imho00:24
n8tusermarabout_ -> btw, why is your mac in a different subnet?  can you put both in same subnet so you can have the two talk to each other easily?00:25
sudobashim on 17700:25
unlinkseems to be related to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fglrx-installer/+bug/25779300:25
Exposuresudobash: please make sure driver is loading etc, before blaming apt for not backing up xorg.conf00:25

homecablehow do i get a dvd to play ?00:27
Grellthats pretty ridiculous00:27
marabout_n8tuser: I'm thinking that the different subnet is due to it being set up as a DMZ e.g. xbox's etc connected to the network but I think I can undo this as it might be causing some problems00:27
Grellthat there isnt an option to do that00:27
sudobashyeah a script but not worth it screw it i will just make a backup on the internet or something00:27

owhangie: I don't have spare disk space lying around to test this, but I suspect that dpkg-reconfigure {ubuntu-kernel-source-name} should work.00:42

askandHi, can someone help me with my nvidiadrivers... from dmesg:  API mismatch: the client has the version 180.22, but this kernel module has the version 177.82.00:43
savvasangie: are you trying the grsecurity patch? they have prepared packages in their own repository: http://kernelsec.cr0.org/00:43
marabout_n8tuser:  that was it! ubuntu machine is now visible on the network. whew- thanks a bunch n8tuser !!00:43
Exposureangie: not really, you need to remove the existing link to be able to make a new one00:43
owhshadow98: Is there a comma in that sentence?00:43
shadow98yeah00:43
angiewhats the new one meant to be called?00:43
sudobashWell you might have been right about the drivers being the problem... I reverted to 173 and everything is working again... but apt still overwrote my xorg also...00:43
n8tusermarabout_ -> am glad, am of assistance today00:43
owhshadow98: Well the default is ext3, but each user has different requirements.00:43
Exposureangie: it's always called 'linux' and it points the the kernel sources dir you want to use00:43
owhYup00:44
angieif i install a package in apt it says "Setting up linux-image-2.6.27.10-grsec (ck2) ..."00:44
shadow98owh: so in your opinion what is the best...00:44
owhDiehardy: Have you settled down?00:44
DiehardyI really need help with this Eee PC 701.00:44
n8tusersudobash -> so hopefully you learned to save a copy of your working xorg.conf  in case you do another update00:45
angiegonna try sudo dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-2.6.27-9-generic00:45
sudobashyeah00:45
angiecould that work Exposure00:45
owhshadow98: That's an unanswerable question. I have servers, virtual machines and workstations, each with different requirements.00:45
Diehardyowh: Yes I have, dammit.00:45
sudobashor if you get the stability you want... dont upgrade?00:45
Exposureangie: don't know, I prefer to do things manually and am not that much into inner workings of apt00:45
shadow98for a desktop workstation...what is the best00:45
owhangie: Uh, that's the image, but not the source.00:45
angieowh: well i dun think i have the src00:45
n8tuserignore Diehardy00:45
angiesudo apt-get insatll kernel-source?00:46
DiehardyNo... why?00:46
owhshadow98: I'm trying to tell you, the "best" is a matter of choice. I use EXT3 on my workstation.00:46
shadow98ok..00:46
sudobashi guess i will never learn my lesson about upgrades00:46

angieso i think i alerady have the ubuntu kernel, owh00:50
Seiver`Damrossthe box is DMZed on my router00:50
angieowh: isnt there a way to just _run_ my previous kernel without downloading 50 mb all over or sth00:50
owhangie: Hold on, the kernel and the source are two separate and different things.00:50
angiek00:50
gustavoowh: i try that but didn't play in my dvd00:50
owhangie: The kernel you are running is a compiled thing. It's compiled from source.00:50
n8tuserknapr -> it would be possible, but telnet server is not recommended to be run on ubuntu00:50
owhangie: You asked about wanting to compile packages and needing the kernel source to do that.00:50
owhangie: What are you really trying to do :)00:51
angieowh: i want to install ftpd.00:51
angieits giving me errors about linux-grsec00:51
pentasideJeruvy: It says to perform two specific commands.  The first one is: sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh linux-restricted-modules-`uname -r`.  Which works fine...00:51

owhjrib: What did you suggest?00:51
jribangie: pastebin complete commands and output/errors please00:51

Exposurethe problem is his linux symlink is pointing to the wrong kernel sources, no biggie00:53
owhangie: Perhaps there is a little mis-understanding underlying this whole discussion. Ubuntu provides two ways of installing stuff. Using compiled packages, something which the vast majority of people use, but you can also get the source for each package and compile that - most won't need or want to.00:53

mas2does anyone know a app for ubunu where I can add .srt/.sub files to an .avi not so it's get hard wired into but so I can choose in a media player to use that sub. I had a app for windows that could add several subs and then on my ps3 I could choose which sub I wanted (added different languages). I did a quick search but all the sub programs was that they added the sub hard wired.01:15
simoo_I would be really grateful if someone could pastebin their /usr/share/applications/screensavers/personal-slideshow.desktop for me? :)01:15

UbuntuNewbien8tuser -> still not making any sense to me - isn't there an Ubuntu command line equivalent to Ms-Dos where I can just type a command like "install d:" so that Ubuntu will just install everything on the specific hard drive that I want it on. I don't want to loose windows.01:16

zigzags has anyone ever used VirtualBox with a floppy image containing SATA ICH8 AHCI drivers to install windows XP on a laptop that has a SATA drive??  im havng some trouble because the windows installer is only seeing ICH7 drivers, and im SURE i need ICH8. ICH7 doesnt work anyway.01:25
IzinucsWebcamWonder: but at this point in Hardy you probably won't have any more kernel upgrades.. (as I smack my self because I know right after saying it, it'll happen)01:25
david1234hikenboot: are you ther01:25
iLogicnsadmin: but the thing is.. I always try to leave the computer up at night for downloads, and when I check it the next day, the connection has dropped.. so I figured I could use a script to ping the router and restart networking if the response is null... but I can't operate through /etc/init.d/networking if my interface isn't listed on /etc/network/interfaces01:25

Jack_Sparrowsektor1952, Are you thinking of minimal install?03:04
Jack_Sparrow!minimal03:04
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/MinimalCD03:04

ubottuThe X Window System is the part of your system that's responsible for graphical output. To restart your X, type « sudo /etc/init.d/?dm restart » in a console - To fix screen resolution or other X problems: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution03:07

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.

Geemyjp_sf: pinging the windows pc returned 100%03:44
WebcamWonderBaz_: Apparently, the card is not directly supported under Ubuntu03:44
Baz_WebcamWonder: i have a feeling that if i re-install ubuntu it will detect it ok - is there a way to achieve the equivalent - kind of like uninstall then re-install in windows device manager?03:44
TheFunkbombI have a quick question03:45
markpeenickrud, here http://paste.ubuntu.com/102529/03:45
Geemyjp_sf: checking firewall03:45
TheFunkbombearlier, someone told me about a program I can run that will let me switch back and forth between windows and ubuntu03:45
TheFunkbombI can't remember what it's called03:45
WebcamWonderBaz_: The thing is, your drivers aren't even loaded. And there isn't a uninstall, b/c in Windows all it does is remove previous cached information of the driver, and brings it offline03:45
WebcamWonderBaz_: Do you see your wireless under Hardware Drivers as Restricted Drivers?03:46
=== gaintsura_ is now known as gaintsura
jp_sfGeemy: if you can ping them their firewall is mostlikely down03:46
MaT-dgTheFunkbomb: A virtual machine?03:47
Baz_WebcamWonder: no, just a suggestion to install an updated nvidia - which i would had i an internet connection03:47
TheFunkbombyes03:47
nickrudmarkpee, ok, you have sorta bad ones, we'll fix that first.   cd /etc/apt , sudo mv sources.list sources.list.saved , then In System->Admin->Software Sources, enable (main) (universe) (restricted) and (multiverse) and disable the Cdrom on the Ubuntu Software tab. On the Updates tab, enable (hardy-security) and (hardy-updates).03:47
Baz_WebcamWonder: thing is i went to fry's today and bought every wireless n card they had03:47
Geemyjp_sf: the windows firewall was enabled, I just turned it off03:47
markpeenickrud, how did i get bad lines ?03:47
WebcamWonderBaz_: I think you need to download the drivers from RaLink's site and hten compile them yourself03:47
jp_sfGeemy: ah ok that could block the share thingy03:47
Baz_WebcamWonder: after this airlink (which i ws told is very linux compatible) i tried a trendnet  - the issue is the same03:48
pjotrTheFunkbomb: virtualbox, wmvare03:48
Baz_WebcamWonder: oh i am on 64bit, if that matters03:48
Jack_Sparrowa-t, Im still working.. sorry for the delay..03:48
MaT-dgTheFunkbomb: Xen, virtualbox, vmware,...03:48
* jp_sf is wondering a windows firewall on and you can ping them hum ...03:48
TheFunkbombpjotr, does that allow me to log into actual windows or is it like WINE?03:48
nickrudmarkpee, sometime or another the repo you were using failed, Line commented out by installer because it failed to verify:03:48
Geemyjp_sf: I just checked the 'Place/Network/Windows Network' it's still empty03:48
a-tit's ok take your time03:48
Baz_any idea if airlink or trendnet is better? (wifi)03:49
jp_sfGeemy: on windows it is windows XP ?03:49
WebcamWonderBaz_: Sorry, I have no clue. The only wireless I have used on Linux is the one I am currentyl running, onboard broadcom03:49
Geemy jp_sf: yes sir03:49
markpeenickrud, it says no such file or directory03:50
pjotrTheFunkbomb, you install the whole operating system and run it 'inside a program'03:50
TheFunkbomboh03:50
markpeefor sources.list03:50
Baz_WebcamWonder: ah, ok... what about the fact that the trendnet wasn't detected either - seems kinda unlikely no?03:50
jp_sfGeemy: on ubuntu you are on 8.10 ?03:50
TheFunkbombso this isn't something I run it inside ubuntu03:50
nickrudmarkpee, then you've got a typo (dang, another socal earthquake)03:50
Geemyjp_sf: yes sir03:50
WebcamWonderBaz_: Depends entirely on the chipset being used on the card. Some have excellent support, some not so much03:50
gustavois there a program to burn dvds from avi format03:51

WebcamWonderGuys, does anyone know if the latest 180 drivers from nVidia will work on Hardy?03:52
WebcamWonderBaz_: sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart03:52
markpeedo you disable the CD-rom03:52
jp_sfGeemy: ok if you click on Places then on Network then on the windows icon is still empty ?03:52

MindViruswolter, you should find what you need on Google. It's a driver for the touchpad; also, google your specific issue and add "synaptics"; it will enrich your results.03:57
norcim122pjotr: install failed at very last steps... seting up users03:57

ubottuMany Ubuntu IRC channels prohibit access from !proxies such as TOR due to a high level of abuse. You can however obtain a hostmask cloak: see http://freenode.net/faq.shtml#cloaks04:01

pjotr a-t, man iptables04:07
WebcamWonder_Seracht: Emerald themes can only be loaded to the program named "Emerald" previously known as Beryl. They are window decorations04:08
jp_sfGeemy: ah a firewall, yeah I would keep 445 and 13904:08
a-thmm is that command :) software too04:08
WebcamWonder_Seracht: GTK themes are themes from buttons, srollbars, etc. They also bring in Window Decorations some times04:08
Serachtcool04:08
WebcamWonder_Seracht: And Compiz Theme? Never heard of that one04:08
Serachtso GTK is more complete?04:08

Serachtcompiz themes04:09
markpeenickrud04:09
crdlbany "gtk theme" which includes window decorations really just has a metacity theme04:09
WebcamWonder_Seracht: Depends. Emerald gives you much more flexibility than GTK-decorator. But yes, GTK themes would be "complete"04:09
markpeei need to restrat04:09

dexixchat is a client that accesses freenode (and millions of other networks) to provide a chat04:23
WebcamWonder_Cid: That I did. I am back in Xorg using nv. I just want to cleanup the mess. There was an API mismatch, Kernel has the 71 version, while I was loading 180 version04:23
Diehardywhere are all the cool chat rooms?04:23

WebcamWonder_Cid: Right now, I am so pissed, I might just sudo rm locate nvidia :p04:24
ActionParsnipd0htem: ive never used key auth, always just username and pass04:24
d0htemahh, well for now can u at least help me do that so i can make sure this ssh is at least closed and passworded to 1 account.04:24
_CidWebcamWonder:  err...not sure I would recommend that ....    you checked if there is an uninstaller in the package? ...it comes with its own shell script for installing right?04:24
CentHOGGHi, in mplayer shift-I brings up the filename. How would you bind that particular action/keystroke to another key in input.conf? TIA04:24
jp_sfd0htem: with your client you generate the keys on the machine then you append the public remote key to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys in the server that's it04:25
_CidWebcamWonder:  guess you can go through that script, and undo everything it did, heh04:25
WebcamWonder_Cid: Yeah it does. But the shell script just starts installing04:25

jp_sfshoto1699: what do you mean it didn't work ? if you could paste the output of the ndiswrapper that would be great the loading of the .inf is just the first step after you have to configure it, but you have to make sure that the correct .inf is loaded05:22

trippssI am using a laptop. 15" screen, resolution is correct, but everything is wider than the screen05:23
jp_sfshoto1699: you are in dual boot I guess so what you need to ensure is you have the correct .inf that you can find on the CDRom then you issue a command sudo ndiswrapper - i .inf (is that not working ?)05:23

trippssbeen using ubuntu on this laptop for > year without problems. Have had hardy running for weeks no problems. This just started tonight without reason.05:25
tj83woli, if this is the first run after your install, i think your chances are good it will be "in-use" upon reboot05:25
wolitj83, yes, but for some reason the card is not working as it used to do while in live sessions05:26
ActionParsnipwoli: if you run lshw -C network in the live session it should tell you the driver it uses05:26
mlopezqcParvo, maybe something is missing that you had in the livecd05:26
woliwait... i think it is now05:26
tj83woli, and if not, then possibly so yes, you could boot the live cd and check for the module that is loaded for your wifi05:26

Rudd-Ohello guys.  I have a pen drive in which the first partition is FAT32 and has GRUB installed (/boot/grub, that boots and works correctly) and the second partition is an Ubuntu Live CD .iso image copied with dd straight into the partitoin.  How can I make GRUB load the kernel inside the second partition?  As in /casper/vmlinuz and stuff.05:54
breathsOf10Flannel: r u paid to be mod or volunteer?05:54
GFreeZombie_Gaz: have you looked around in Rhythmbox's options? There mighjt be a checkbox or something05:54
breathsOf10Flannel: dun need to answer if u dun wanna ;)05:55
Rudd-Owhen I try to tell grub to load the kernel from that partition, it says "Cannot mount selected partition".  It's as if GRUB cannot read CD images.05:55
micro01do i have to download emerald before i install it?05:55
Rudd-Oany ideas?05:55
FlannelbreathsOf10: We're volunteers, for support and operator stuffs.05:55
tj83micro01, click on system, admin- software sources and make sure the "cd-rom" is unchecked05:55
GFree<micro01>: emerald is automatically downloaded when you ask to install it05:55
kurrataZombie_Gaz:  edit=>plugins=> uncheck "Minimize to tray"05:55
Zombie_GazGFree: believe it or not... there isn't (at least in the lasest version... apparently there is in a older one).05:55
MarupaRudd-O, You are wanting to boot from an Ubuntu LiveCD that's on a USB drive?05:55
mlopezqcRudd-O, Grub doesn't work well with FAT32, syslinux is better for that05:55
Flannelmicro01: What version of Ubuntu are you using? (lsb_release -a will tell you)05:55
tj83micro01, once the command is functioning, it will download and install at that time05:55
ActionParsnipRudd-O: http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies-archive.cfm/925285.html05:56
sleepy_catwell wine is good05:56
mlopezqcRudd-O, I recommend to use the 8.10 USB wizard05:56
Rudd-Omlopezqc: FAT32 is not the problem, GRUB works *correctly05:56
sleepy_catbut it could be a lot better05:56
GFreeZombie_Gaz: doesn't matter for me, I use exaile. :)05:56
Zombie_Gazkurrata: Thanks. Doesn't make sense that it is in pluggins but whatever. ;)05:56
micro01yes it is unchecked05:56
Rudd-Omlopezqc: the wizard doesn't do what I want to do, and I cannot run it either because I'm doing this on a Fedora05:56
Parvono05:56
sleepy_catcause it does not support many software05:56
ActionParsnipRudd-O: http://www.linqi.org/linux/lomd.html05:56
Rudd-OMarupa: yes, the LiveCD is on a partition (not as a file, but raw)05:56
sleepy_catlike flvconvertet for an example05:56
tj83micro01, Flannel asked you a question, he has more experience than I05:56
ActionParsnipRudd-O: grub can boot pretty much anything05:56
sleepy_catthere is a lot more to it.05:57
Rudd-Ono syslinux based solutions, thank you very much05:57
mlopezqcRudd-O, I think you are complicating things a bit05:57
Rudd-OActionParsnip: correct, this is why I want to use grub.  But unfortunately grub cannot mount ISO images or so it seems05:57
Parvoim going to try and reinstall everything in diff order05:57
MarupaRudd-O, Booting onto a LiveCD like that isn't recommended.  Using the USB wizard or UNetbootin is recommended.05:57
Rudd-Omlopezqc: no, this is simpler than trying to install Ubuntu on my workstation05:57
micro01flannel did u ask me question?05:57
Rudd-OMarupa: that's a nonstarter, I use FEDORA on my workstation, and none of those programs work on fedora.05:57
Flannelmicro01: What version of Ubuntu are you using? (lsb_release -a will tell you)05:57
micro018.10 i am using05:57
MarupaRudd-O, UNetbootin works under wine for me.05:58
ActionParsnipRudd-O: id read those guides i gave, im fairly certain it can do it05:58
tj83good night all, time for some much needed sleep05:58
Rudd-OMarupa: I'm trying to do something that unetbootin cannot do, so discard it05:58
Parvoi'll fiddle around see what happends....05:58
Rudd-Othe solution on the whilrpool forums page is a nonstarter because it requires me to RESPIN the iso image05:58
Zombie_Gazkurrata: That didn't work. That just doesn't minimize to tray... it is still in the tray.05:58
Flannelmicro01: Alright, please pastebin the output of th following: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install emerald05:58
mlopezqcRudd-O, Ok, you have the image, burn it and boot it05:58

Rudd-OFlannel: no unetbootin, no copyying of the files inside the ISO.  I want to boot the *ISO* as a partition.06:01
Tulgaok06:01
mlopezqcRudd-O, dont be strong head, I think I can help you to do it with sysinstall06:01
Rudd-Omlopezqc: I am not being a strong head, what I am trying to do requires me to boot the ISO image as a partition on the USB drive06:01
Zombie_Gazkurrate: No... I mean the system tray (top right of desktop). On mine I have volume control and network connection by default.06:01
mlopezqcthe thing is that you CAN'T boot an iso06:01
micro01Flannel: what is my next step?06:01
Rudd-Omlopezqc: why?06:01
Rudd-Omlopezqc: GRUB is said to support ISO9660 just fine06:01
Rudd-Oso why not?06:01
ActionParsnipRudd-O: your config is bad then06:02
Marupamlopezqc, You can boot ISOs, it just requires specific precompiled binaries.06:02
Rudd-OActionParsnip: no, it's correct06:02
mlopezqcRudd-O, yes but when de device is ISO9660 but you have a filesystem into another filesystem06:02

Rudd-Othe iso was copied like this: dd if=/isoimage of=/dev/sdc206:03
magcwhat is it called?06:03
MarupaRudd-O, I'm not sure, I know only that it's possible, as multiple bootloaders can.06:03

redlegionit's pretty freakin sweet06:21
ikoniaredlegion: I've never used that outside plan 9, so wouldn't know06:21
_anuupop , let me try :)06:21
ikoniagiacomo_c: thats going to be quite tough due to the fact that they will be newer than the stable06:21
redlegionwell, it might be applicable knowledge if someone uses tcsh, perhaps?06:21
redlegionor some similar shell?06:21
=== drnk-e is now known as DRNK-E
ikoniaredlegion: tcsh uses .tcsh_profile or .profile on any login shell and works fine06:22
Rudd-Omlopezqc: I also read that06:22
l3dI was wondering what does the first line in someones firestarter (etc/firestarter/configuration ) say at the external network interface after the If="what is here"06:22
Rudd-Oit is interesting but grub 2 is not inf edora06:22
giacomo_cikonia: yeah06:22
giacomo_cis there a way to see what updates happened when?06:22
ikoniaredlegion: it is possible that your rc shell is not being launched as a "login" shell06:22
ikoniagiacomo_c: read your dpkg logs06:22
giacomo_cwhere are those?06:22
mlopezqcRudd-O, or maybe you can use syslinux in the following way06:22
_anuupop : how to get help for "rename" ?06:22
redlegionikonia, really... that's odd. what other than /etc/passwd would denote such a thing?06:22
ikoniaRudd-O: not interesting at all as no-one is using grub 206:22
leeIf anyone is familiar with compiz fusion (specifically compiz-fusion-icon) and has a few minutes, please pm me.06:22
micro01duz ne one know how to use emerald after its been installed?06:22
ikoniaredlegion: how the shell is invoked06:22
Rudd-Omlopezqc: and it is also not what I want, bceause casper CAN READ ISO images burnt to partitions06:23
redlegionikonia, ah. makes sense.06:23
ikoniaredlegion: eg: bash is invoked with --login (from memory) to be a login shell06:23
Rudd-Omlopezqc: forget about syslinux, it is a piece of garbage and I WANT the GRUB menu06:23
micro01anyone?06:23
ikoniamicro01: saying anyone is pointless06:23
redlegionikonia, it might help explain why the damn thing works on the console, but not in an xterm instance :-D06:23
redlegionikonia, thanks06:23
ikoniamicro01: you get better responses if you don't speak in text speak and speak in clear english06:23
giacomo_cand i think it update the kernel too06:23
unop_anu, man rename  # and http://perldoc.perl.org/perlretut.html, http://perldoc.perl.org/perlre.html06:23
ikoniaredlegion: thats a very common situation with all shells06:23
mlopezqcok, I thought that you wanted to find a solution, any solution06:24
ikoniaredlegion: so yes, I'd put money on that being the proble,m06:24
therealnanotubegiacomo_c: dpkg logs are in /var/log/dpkg.log06:24
redlegionikonia, thanks for the help06:24
ikoniaredlegion: no problem06:24
mlopezqcnow I see that you want to know how to do it with GRUP06:24
l3dI was wondering what does the first line in someones firestarter (etc/firestarter/configuration ) say at the external network interface after the If="what is here"06:24
leeI am using Ubuntu 8.10 and compiz-fusion-icon causes me to be logged out and prompted to log back in, but it never actually starts. I tried running it in terminal and I am getting a segmentation fault. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?06:24
mlopezqcbut I think it is only available in GRUB 2, cause it have loopback support06:24
qqxcould any of the volunteers here please tell me how to use the bluetooth headset as my default audio device?06:25
unop_anu,  a bash shell solution:  for i in A*.*; do mv "$i" "${i/A/b}"; done06:25
_anu" rename 's/^ab/abmcro/' ab*.* " ?06:25
Rudd-OI don't want loopback06:25
mlopezqcRudd-O, have you tried to use the autocomplete feature of grub command line?06:26
_anui want to add mcro after06:26
Rudd-Omlopezqc: precisely that feature gives me the "cannot mount selected partition"06:26
unop_anu, that works,  it would rename  ab.jpg  to abmcro.jpg06:26
l3ddoes anyone in here have firestarter installed06:26
_anuthank you upop06:26
giacomo_cah, i could also pull up a history of what was installed via synaptic06:27
mlopezqcso GRUB CANNOT mount it06:27
Rudd-Ogrub> kernel (hd0,1)/[TAB] -> Cannot mount selected partition06:27
unop_anu, and  abxyz.jpg  to abmcroxyz.jpg06:27
therealnanotubel3d: not me...06:27
giacomo_cnow i guess i just have to go back through and force each version to the one before it v0v06:27
Roastedmy microphone does not work. It is not muted, but the hardware works fine cause it works in vista. Anybody have any ideas??06:27
ikoniagiacomo_c: sounds sane06:27
giacomo_cback to the (intrepid-updates) version06:28
giacomo_ci hope that fixes this glitch06:28
giacomo_caw, it won't let me :(06:28
mlopezqcRudd-O, you are really obstinated, but I don't criticize you, I'm the same way06:28
l0flshey is their any one whos good with shell & terminal who can help meh06:28

Out_Coldi have a external HD that used to auto-mount. I use it to go between windows and ubuntu on separate machines. Now when I plug it into my ubuntu it won't auto-mount with an error that I no longer have permission. I then have to mount using "sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /path/ -o force".

Rudd-Oqqx: if you are using pulseaudio, it should just be a matter of selecting it as the default audio device in PulseAudio Volume Control06:33
Rudd-Oright click on the device, check the Default checkmark06:33
Rudd-Othats it06:34
therealnanotubeGuest78220: you could start a file browser as root, with "sudo nautilus", and then use the gui...06:34
Out_ColdRoasted, try alsamixer in the terminal... make sure you turn on all mic devices...06:34

mlopezqcjust plug it in Windows, unplug it properly and you will be back in business06:34
Guest78220therealnanotube: ah i didnt think of that nice06:34
unopOut_Cold, your problem is that you didn't use the uid and gid options with your mount command06:34
ikonial0fls: just type the name of the person you want to talk to first06:34

monicahello06:36
pdroyRoasted: are you sure you connected mic to the correct port06:36
ikonial0fls: just ask the question you want the answer for06:36
ikonial0fls: doesnt matter if anyone is using it - people know how to fix it06:36
Roastedpdroy - oh yeah. It works in Vista just fine. Then when I reboot (changing nothing) ubuntu just doesnt have any output when I try to record with it.06:36
mlopezqchello monica06:36
l0flswell diablo 2 insall works fine06:36
l0flswhen i run it i get put in play cd06:36
l0flswhen its in06:36
pdroyRoasted: did you try playing around with the Mixer controls06:37
ricardo_hello06:37
Roastedpdroy - yep. I have microphone listed there, maxed, and not muted. I dont know what else to do.06:37
pdroyRoasted: well if it is not muted then you should be getting a feed back when you speak into the mic06:37
giacomo_chow can i add a trashcan to my desktop?06:38
Roastedpdroy - I get "feedback" but when I record something in sound recorder, I get nothing.06:38
Out_Coldanyone know how come alsamixer lost all of it's device options in 8.10?? i had problems trying to get certain things going and had to revert back to 8.04 to get the devices back in alsamixer.06:38
therealnanotubegiacomo_c: make a shortcut to the trash folder...06:38
Rudd-OOut_Cold: it's because alsamixer is now using the pulseaudio device.  You can revert to the old behavior by running alsamixer -c 006:39
Rudd-Othat will make alsamixer control the zeroth card on your system instead of the pulseaudio device06:39
Roastedpdroy - yeah, when I mute it, the feed back stops. When I unmute it, the feed back can be heard again. But even still, I cant actually record anything...06:39
pdroyRoasted: ahh I have had the same problem with a machine of mine, I had to pass some extra parameters to the driver when it loads to get it working but the fedd back stopped working after wards06:39
l0flsAny one know how to fix an error in cedega when you run diablo 2 and get Insert play disk when its in?!?!06:39
Rudd-ORoasted: the volume control you want is not the PLAYBACK one, but the RECORDING one06:39
Out_Colddo i lose out on any by reverting Rudd-O?06:39
giacomo_ctherealnanotube: how do i do that?  could i make a launcher that was like nautilus trash:///06:39
giacomo_cor something like that?06:39
pdroyRoasted: whats your sound card model ?06:40
Rudd-OOut_Cold: no, you do not lose anything, alsamixer -c 0 shows you the mixer ciontrol board for the card, but it does not change anything permanently06:40

therealnanotubegiacomo_c: hm, don't know, try it. :) the actual trash folder is in ~/.local/share/Trash/06:40
Rudd-ORoasted: correct, you need to select microphone capture, and then alter the capture level.06:40
gbear14275Rudd-O: that the gcj one?06:40
l0flsdoes anyone know how to hide a terminal so it doesent show on the bottom screen06:40
Rudd-Ogbear14275: not at all06:40
therealnanotubegiacomo_c: but i suppose if you make a launcher to "nautilus trash:///", it should work too06:41
gbear14275Rudd-O: which one is suns?  I can't tell06:41
Prez00hello06:41
tripchronic!repeat06:41
ubottuDon't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. You can search https://help.ubuntu.com or http://wiki.ubuntu.com while you wait. Also see !patience06:41
Rudd-OOut_Cold: no, it's not session dependent.  -c 0 is just temporary for that execution of alsamixer.  if you want volumes to be saved and restored upon login, may I suggest using kmix (the KDE mixer) for that purpose?06:41
therealnanotubegiacomo_c: but it's probably easiest to just stick a trash icon on the panel... (right click panel, add to panel, trash)06:41
Rudd-Ogbear14275: sun-java06:41

Rudd-OOut_Cold: no prob06:42
RoastedRudd-0 - Maybe this is part of my problem. "Microphone Capture" has 2 icons under it. One is for mute, the other... I dont know... but the otehr has a red X over it. If I select it to get the red X off, exit, and go back in to my sound control, the red X reappears. I'm wondering if that's my problem... but how do I fix that?06:42

Rudd-ORoasted: that's a glitch on your sound card.  look, I use kmix.  on kmix I select capture on the source I want to capture, but I DO NOT alter the volume on it to change the capture volume, there is a SEPARATE slider named CAPTURE for that.06:42

tripchronicRudd-O DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.06:43

tripchronicRudd-O thanks06:44

eseven73The multiple "??!?!!?!?!" at the end of a question is very rude not to mention poor grammar. A single '?' will do.06:44
Out_Coldi occasionally use 2 ??'s06:44
GFreeI don't understand, I was always shown the loop/iso9660 crap, how has it changed?06:44
Prez00Rudd-O: does this all the time, could it be i have exceeded 2GB or something, is that a limitation?06:44
therealnanotubeeseven73: but it's ok as long as you put in some "1"s or "one"s :)06:45
Roastedrudd-o - where is kmix when you install it?06:45
Rudd-Oroasted: kde multimedia package it's called06:45
unopGFree, you need those options - otherwise mount will fail06:45
Rudd-OPrez00: not sure.  I abandoned evolution THREE YEARS ago.  I now use kmail exclusively.  much less elegant, but much more integrated with KDE.06:45
Roastedrudd-o - but is it a program that I use to adjust things? Or is it just something I install and BAM that's it?06:45
Out_Coldthen i was wrong.... D- for moi06:45
GFreeunop, that's what I thought, but tripchronic said thanks so I figured I was going too far06:45
Rudd-OI wish I hadnt though, turns out the only way to sync up with my iphone is using evo.06:45
eseven73therealnanotube: haha this is true :)06:45
GFreeno matter06:45
Rudd-ORoasted: it is a program to adjust mixer levels.06:45
Rudd-Oyou run kmix, it shows up in your notification area like a little speaker.06:46
Roastedrudd - o - I cannot findit. I just installed it *shrug*06:46
Rudd-Oroasted: alt+f2, type kmix06:46
l0flsGuys where would i mount the iso if i want cedega to detect it?!?!06:46
Prez00Rudd-O: ok, thanks06:46
Rudd-Okmix is saved in your session so if you close your session it will reopen again when it startsup, and if you have set up the options in the menu, you can have it restore your volume levels06:46
Rudd-OI think it does that by default, but I don't remember06:46
Rudd-Oah the mousewheel on the top of the speaker lets you quickly raise/lower volume06:47
Rudd-Othe speaker icon I mean06:47
nsadminI wouldn't say it's rude... if the originator didn't intend rudeness, then the listener's sense of rudeness (1) is only in his own mind and (2) is not based on any sense of reality... but while it is not rude, it does have the tendency to redirect attention06:47
l0flsAnd how do i Verify the iso md506:47
Roastedrudd - o - BAM. Worked. I have mic feedback now. Why in the world cant I get that to work in the regular volume control though man??06:47
Rudd-ORoasted: no idea, man.06:47
therealnanotubel0fls: "md5sum -c"06:47
Rudd-ORoasted: remember that having mike feedback is not the same as having mike selected for recording, nor is it the recording level of your mike06:47
ricardo_i'am new here i need help mounting my 2 external hard drives06:48
therealnanotubel0fls: or to just calculate the sum, just md5sum06:48
ricardo_i need some support06:48
ricardo_can someone help me?06:48
Roastedrudd - o - I understand that. I'm just failing to see what kmix does that allows my microphone to work that the regular volume control doesn't.06:48
Rudd-Oricardo_: dude, explain your problem06:48
Rudd-ORoasted: probably because kmix has more comprehensive controls06:49
Roastedrudd - o - Does kmix start automatically upon a fresh system restart?06:49
nsadminricardo_: do they show up?06:49
ricardo_they show up06:49
=== conor is now known as Al1_
ricardo_but when i try to open them06:49
ricardo_i get an error06:49
Rudd-ORoasted: only if you leave it open and close your session,  then gnome would arguably save it in its session.06:49
therealnanotubericardo_: make sure they have actual filesystem on them...?06:49
ricardo_it says cannot mount volume06:49
nsadmindoes it say why?06:49
Rudd-OI don't remember if that is an option you need to select or not, but here I have automatic session save in kde, and it saves all programs when I log out06:49
therealnanotubericardo_: and see what messages you get if you try to mount them manually with 'mount' ?06:49
Rudd-Oricardo_: ok, what program gives you that error message?06:50
Roastedrudd - o - "close" my session? Meaning if I lose power and boot back up, I'll have to reopen kmix to get microphone capabilities?06:50
ricardo_when i go to my computer06:50
therealnanotubeRudd-O: gnome by default doesn't save all running programs in session. but that can be set in system -> prefs -> sessions06:50
Rudd-ORoasted: what i mean is that when you log out, your programs are saved in the "session", and when you log back in, your programs are restored.  But if you never log out, then the programs may fail to be saved in the sessionl.06:50
l0flstherealnanotube:  what should the md5 sum be?!?06:50
therealnanotubeRudd-O: i find it better to manually add stuff to session startup.06:50
Rudd-Otherealnanotube: thanks for the tip.  heads up roasted.06:50

nsadminricardo_ ok, what format are the drives in? what os formatted them?06:52
Rudd-ORoasted: what happens when you call the callt esting service?06:52
Roastedrudd - o - In sound recorder, I have microphone output. In skype, I dont.06:52
Rudd-ORoasted: did you call the call testing service?  what happened?06:53
therealnanotubel0fls: every file has a different md5sum. so... find out what it should be. if there's no md5sum provided for it, then... you have nothing to check. but anyway, torrent protocol does error checking anyway, so you don't have to worry about md5sums, generally.06:53
Roastedrudd - o - I have two skype accounts, and I was calling one from the other from my desktop to laptop. But my laptop battery just died.06:53
RoastedI did call the testing service. I hear the lady talk. But I dont hear my voice playback after I record my message.06:53

Rudd-ORoasted: awesome06:56
Rudd-Onow is there a SPECIFIC slider for capture?06:56
Rudd-OI have two sound cards.  one of them doesn't and the other does.06:56

RoastedI believe so. I mean, its really close to AUX but I assume AUX is to another slider.06:57

Out_ColdRoasted, are you on the right mic input in skype?? i had like 3 or 4 when i only have 2 inputs..06:59

ricardo_IM BILGATES NEPHEW I INSTALLED UBUNTU BECAUSE XP IS BULLSHIT06:59
Rudd-Oyeah, usually there are several mic ouptuts06:59

persiabazhang, It's that the folder selection panel is missing, rather than changes to the mail display panel.07:35
JohnAndersonor do i need to reinstall ubuntu on the harddrive set as master with the other as slave07:35
ikoniaJohnAnderson: should be quite straight forward07:35
JohnAndersonim a newbie tho!07:36

persiadaredevilthere, There's a fairly comprehensive manual at http://people.cs.uu.nl/piet/docs/nawk/nawk_toc.html07:37
ikoniaJohnAnderson: master/slave don't mean anything - so don't worry about that07:37

JohnAndersonwindows was already installed on the first harddrive07:38
codpawnI have booting problems with my ubuntu can any one help me?07:38

JohnAndersonno i removed the windows drive entirely and installd it on the second by itself07:39
ikoniaJohnAnderson: ok, thats the problem07:39
JohnAndersoni know ;(07:39
ikoniaJohnAnderson: you may find it easier/quick to put both disks in as you want them, then re-install ubuntu, it will do everything for you (should do)07:39

Lou__This bug is affecting me big time, but it seems that there is no one working on it now after several weeks: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/281622.  It must not be affecting many people, but it makes many of my applications unusable---even the bug reporting module doesn't work!  It seems to be the update to the GNU C libraries several weeks ago that is causing it.08:24
