jeffwheelerIs there any way to get a Mac to stream audio to a pulseaudio sound server? I've got a Linux machine connected to my speakers, but it would be very convenient if I could also use the speakers with my Mac.00:03
jribmogi22: try adding " init=/bin/bash" to the end of the normal kernel line instead then. (pressing 'e' in the grub menu lets you edit it)00:03
jeffwheelerOr, is there some alternative solution that might get me closer?00:03
jeffwheelerI've found "jack", but it seems immature, and an alternative to all of pulseaudio's niceness. Is this incorrect?00:04
Zloy_Moderhelp me please ((00:04
look2thestarsmogi22, yeah, it's got a a password apparently. You've booted up from a linux floppy and try resetting ?00:04
Titan8990jeffwheeler: not sure about pulse audio but VLC is multi-platform and will stream media across a network00:04
look2thestarsZloy what do you need help with?00:05
mogi22 look2thestars i can boot from a linux floppy and reset the grub pw?  using hal91 or some other linux floppy?00:05
jeffwheelerTitan8990: that's something to look at; thanks.00:05

BLZMindvirus:  you might not own the ipod00:05
Zloy_Moderlook2thestars> with ubuntu that i install yesterday ((00:05
MindVirusI own the iPod.00:05
MindVirusI can unmount it as root through the console.00:06
look2thestarsYou can boot from a linux floppy and work on the other system. If nothing else, you could see about checking the permissions.00:06
look2thestarsZloy, what's the prob ?00:06
mogi22jrib, pushing e does nothing, by grub menu do you mean the menu where i can choose amongst kernels and recover modes?00:06
BLZMindVirus:  well if you use root you might not  own it00:06
Zloy_Moderlook2thestars> may be in private?00:06
BLZMindVirus:  have you tried chown?00:06
MindVirusBLZ, and what should I chown?00:06
jribmogi22: yes00:06
look2thestarshttp://www.toms.net/rb/ for a great linux floppy00:06
mogi22jrib, ok so e did nothing, it does say press p to get into more features ... w/ pw of course00:07
jribmogi22: press e after using the arrow keys to select a kernel and before pressing enter00:07
BLZthe ipod... i'm a bit rusty on the syntax but i'd try sudo chown [device name] 70000:07
look2thestarsZloy, why not tell me here? Maybe it'll resolve your issue faster if more eyes are looking at it.00:07
mogi22look2thestars, actually i have tom's floppy too!00:07
jribmogi22: there isn't a grub password set by default, did you set one?00:07
BLZMindVirus:  or maybe it's sudo chown 700 [device name]  ... yeah i think it's that00:07
look2thestarsmogi22, that's the grub menu, where you see the kernels00:07

tom_eats_livesis there a way to configure multiple keyboard and mice for one comp ?00:07
=== jgoguen is now known as LinuxFredBot
MindVirusBLZ, that wouldn't work.00:08
look2thestarsmogi22, great minds think alike !00:08
mogi22jrib, i did that and e does nothing.  and yeah i'm guessing i did set one on original install/config.  b/c its asking for it now00:08
MindVirusBLZ, chown changes the owner.00:08
Somethieftom_eats_lives just plug them in and they will work?00:08
MindViruschmod changes the permissions.00:08
MindVirus700 is permissions.00:08
=== LinuxFredBot is now known as jgoguen
jribmogi22: so put in the password00:08
mogi22look2thestars, so what do i do once i boot from tom or hal91 to rm grub pw00:08
BLZMindVirus:  oh yeah, duh.  Try chmod then00:08
MindVirusAnd 700 means only the owner can read, write, and execute.00:08
JHook101hmmm00:08
look2thestarsZloy,  what language is that ?>00:08
MindVirusBLZ, I have tried chmodding the /media/ipod directory.00:08
BLZMindVirus:  you want everybody else to be able to rwx?00:08
mogi22jrib, oh if life were so fortuitous00:08
MindVirusTo 777.00:08
Zloy_Moderlook2thestars> Russian00:08
MindVirusIt doesn't help.00:08
mogi22jrib, i dont even recall setting a pw, so no way i'm going to recall the pw00:09
BLZMindVirus:  but try it with /dev/sda1 or whatever00:09
gilAnyone know why my screen might blink during games with 3d-acceleration?00:09
MindVirusGood call.00:09
look2thestarsmogi22, might look at editing grub menu ? I'd see about removing the line with the passwd00:09
mogi22jrib, if you can vanquish the pw w/ a boot floppy (as i hope you can) then seems like grub pw is futile00:09
jribmogi22: try your common ones... try your account's password... in the future try not to set passwords you will forget :)00:09
BLZMindVirus:  yeah sorry... i wasn't clear about that00:09
mogi22jrib, yeah i'm trying several now00:09
MindVirusBLZ, nice!00:09
MindVirusThanks.00:09
jribmogi22: sure except you weren't able to mount the partition with the floppy00:09
MindVirusShould have thought of that. :(00:10
look2thestarsZLoy, cool. Welcome. Post at http://paste.ubuntu.com/ and then post the link here. It might be easier for you.00:10
BLZMindVirus;  haha it's always something silly, isn't it?  Glad I could help00:10
DoonzI have Ubuntu acting as my gateway/router but now my internet is extremely slow00:10
mogi22look2thestars, what do you mean edit the grub menu? ... yeah what jrib said00:10
Zloy_Moderlook2thestars> Can you help me?00:10
MindVirusI thought adding user to the boot line in fstab would take care of that.00:10
mogi22jrib, so am i correct that my only hope is to recall this pw?00:10
tom_eats_livesSomethief, yes , however i mean each one acts individually , so two people can type at same time00:10
look2thestarsZloy, I don't know until you post some information.00:10
jribmogi22: no, you can boot a live cd00:10
Titan8990Doonz: there are specific linux distros just for use as a router/firewall00:10

koolkatDoes anyone know how to version control a website with subversion?00:11
look2thestarsZloy just look at  http://paste.ubuntu.com/ , and if it doesn't work for you , let me know.00:11
JHook101anyone know the sudo command to install  Sun Java Runtime Environment00:11
Titan8990MindVirus: ext4 is not stable00:11
BLZMindVirus:  lol you play a dangerous game... don't you have to patch the kernel for that?00:11
MindVirusNot stable, eh?00:11
MindVirusBLZ, no, it's already in the kernel, I thought.00:12
look2thestarsZloy, I don't know Russian, but you're doing pretty good with English. I speak a few other languages.00:12
Titan8990JHook101: use apt-cache search java jre00:12
BLZJHook101:  you can install 'ubuntu-restricted-extras' and JRE is one of the many things installed... i dunno if that helps00:12
jribmogi22: figuring out hal91 I guess00:12
BLZMindVirus:  i thought not, but maybe you're right... i dunno00:12
jribmogi22: I assume you have no working operating system anywhere in your house?00:12
MindVirusAye, since it's not stable, I won't take my chances.00:12
Zloy_Moderlook2thestars> My English too bad for posting my problem, I am russian,00:13
look2thestarsmogi22, I'd see about booting up with the linux boot floppy, then mounting the hard drive, then doing some magic to enable you to bypass PAM authentication.00:13
perillux1if I'm hosting my own website with apache2, is there any way to know how many people have visited it?  Or do I have to get one of those counter scripts?00:13
mogi22jrib, do you mean figuring out hal91 to mount the disk?  well i have this one i'm on on the laptop but it has no rj4500:13
tom_eats_livesSomethief, yes sort of , i have one workstation , with 2 screens , i want to have separate mouse / keyboard input00:13
Morchubookoolkat: is the website static pages? if so then you could set up a cron job to add it to subversion.00:13
look2thestarsZloy, give it a try. please.00:13

ubottuZloy_Moder: Пожалуйста посетите #ubuntu-ru для получения помощи на русском языке  / Pozhalujsta posetite #ubuntu-ru dlya polucheniya pomoshi na russkom yazyke00:13
Titan8990MindVirus: MindVirus: actually, it looks like wikipedia has it marked as stable as of 10/200800:13
jribmogi22: if you have an enclosure for the hard disk, you could use that00:13
BLZZloy-Moder:  hope that helps =)00:13
Zloy_Moderubbutu - Thx00:14
Titan8990MindVirus: I still wouldn't take me chances personally00:14
mogi22look2thestars, i'd love that method/option but how do i mount the hd from floppy boot?  it says doesnt recognize device and that i need to load driver for it.00:14
mogi22jrib, not even sure what an enclosure is00:14
Somethieftom_eats_lives sorry dont think i can help you but guess that should be possible but might not be very easy process, tried google?00:14
look2thestarsIs the hard drive SATA ?00:14
koolkatMorchuboo: No, they are PHP files, I im trying to make it so that other people can edit the website00:14
Titan8990MindVirus: If you are looking for something better, you can try XFS but i can be picky about the controller00:14
mogi22look2thestars, nope ata00:15
mogi22look2thestars, old school here baby00:15
Morchubookoolkat: easiest would be to use a crm. silverstripe or concrete5 are both very good00:15
tom_eats_livesSomethief, no , not at all , thought i would ask here see if there was any tips first .. will start googling now00:15
look2thestarsMogi22, I use ATA on my older computers, you shouldn't have a prob using Tom's Root boot00:15
mogi22look2thestars, toms has same prob which is why i went to hal9100:15
Morchubookoolkat: most sorry - cms, not crm00:15
mogi22look2thestars, cant i install the driver from a 2nd floppy?00:16
mogi22look2thestars, i just dont know how to find the driver?00:16
look2thestarsmogi22, I'm trying to see if Tom's has installable modules... but it should be able to see an ATA drive natively.00:16
look2thestarsThere are other linux floppy distros.00:16
look2thestarsmogi22, can you post me some of the information, like error messages to http://paste.ubuntu.com/ ?00:17
mogi22look2thestars, what others?  i only found those 200:17
look2thestarsAhh... there's a security distro from someone named Franz a long time ago.00:17
Morchubookoolkat: cms systems tend to have some sort of versioning in them. You could do it yourself but would be a lot of work to add history to the data in the db.00:17
mogi22look2thestars, well ubuntu might be on v9.10 by the time that loads for me00:17
look2thestarsmogi22, sorry, sorry. Hmm. so when you try to mount the hard drive, what error do you get ?00:18
mogi22look2thestars,  but the error msg is simple "kernel doesnt not recognize /dev/sda1 as block device.  try insmod driver"00:18
look2thestarsmogi22, thanks, just a sec.00:18
koolkatMorchuboo: I kinda cant use a cms, this is the website for my school district and is already written, but me and some of my friends was going to make it better and we needed to set up a subverion system so that some students can edit the code and upload it00:18
Titan8990mogi22: that is a common error when /etc/fstab is configured wrong00:19
mogi22look2thestars, someone on hal91 had same issue and the replies were load the driver already!  but how00:19

gurphi've checked this xorg.conf thing before and the whole thing was blank00:23
IndyGunFreakgurph: i don't think this is an issue w/ your graphics card00:23
Morchubookoolkat: ahh i see. You could make an upload script that the students use. This script could take a copy of the page by "wget" ing the page before making the changes and put it in the subversion repo. Another alternative would be to use WebHTTrack daily, hourly or whatever to create a complete copy of the whole site.00:23
IndyGunFreakgurph: has it ever worked, or is this a new install, and all of a sudden, it didn't work?00:23

VideoSmithGot it :P00:25
Morchubookoolkat: Ideally you should convince them to start using a cms. Much better for multi editor sites. Could maybe set up a copy of the site in a cms on your own machine to give them a demonstration.00:25

rsquareScottG489: That's been happening to me too.  I thought maybe my Dell mouse was getting screwed up, but it's only 5 months old00:33
gurphthen i got a huge help-list style thing00:33
rayluxopey, IndyGunFreak, Titan8990: his error clearly has nothing to do with X00:33
IndyGunFreakraylu: i said that from the beginning00:33
gurphwhat i tried to do was "dpkg --reconfigure xserver-xorg"00:33
Titan8990raylu: with an empty xorg.conf file?00:33

Uplinki need a flash editor please00:34
raylugurph: try moving .gnome and .gnome200:34
TheFunkbombwhat is the terminal command to find out what sound card I have?00:34
tiyowanUplink: Do you mean something to develop flash projects with?00:34
xopeyUplink: i don't know of one00:34
rayluTheFunkbomb: lspci00:34
Titan8990raylu: interesting, what does it use?00:34
Uplinktiyowan: yes, like a macromedia flash pro00:34
TheFunkbombthanks raylu00:34

Uplinktiyowan: yes i have00:35

Jack_Sparrow!java00:35
Pirate_Hunterhi im testing out wmii on my main comp so i can use on my lappy afterwards at the moment I luv it (they even included a welcome screen to get the user started) but yeah just wondering why is exiale giving me segmentation fault, tried googling and found no bugs listed, so could anyone help indentify the cause?00:35
ubottuTo install a Java runtime/interpreter on Ubuntu, look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java - For the Sun Java runtime install sun-java6-jre from the !Multiverse repository00:35
rayluUplink: your best bet is to try it with wine and, when it fails, install windows in a VM00:35
Uplinkraylu: there are no flash editors for linux? :|00:36
tiyowanUplink: I believe raylu's right. Flash is closed-sourced. I don't think you'll find something that runs natively on linux. Maybe you could try running Macromedia software under Wine?00:36
rayluPirate_Hunter: wmii is a panelling window manager, right?00:36
ScottG489rsquare: Yea I have a Dell mouse too. Its a laser mouse and I have had it for a while with absolutly no problems. I dont think it has to do with the mouse.00:36
Uplinktiyowan: yea i heard macromedia runs fine under wine00:36
Uplinki guess i have no other option00:36
VideoSmithHere's a question guys.  This is the reason I've been trying kdenlive.  Windows Movie Maker crashes on opening though I'm opening it with Wine.  What's the problem?00:36
tiyowanUplink: If you could hang on, I'll dig up the relevant link for Wine.00:36
DarkSotM!twin00:36

Uplinktiyowan: http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iAppId=2300:37
rsquareScottG489: For me it's kind of random, though.  Half the time a single click is a single click.  The other half it's two or more clicks.  I found out that if I click really fast I can avoid it most of the time.00:37
ScottG489rsquare: Its weird cuz it doesnt happen consistantly at all. I could go around single clicking on this but then every few seconds it seems to add another click. So sometimes if I eve single click a folder it will open00:38
rsquareScottG489: But because of the randomness, that's why I figured it was a hardware malfunction.00:38
Pirate_Hunterraylu: dynamic tilling and panneling yup why?00:38
rsquareYeah00:38
rayluPirate_Hunter: it only segfaults in wmii, not in gnome?00:38

Jack_SparrowVideoSmith, the problem with wmm or kdenlive00:40
Pirate_Hunterraylu: yup i know where this is goig maybe i should ask how do i stop it from happening and while im on this topic can you suggest a good cli player not server i.e. mpd00:40

gaintsurahey all I've recently upgraded to 2.6.24-23-generic and since then I've been getting this [  262.004597] APIC error on CPU1: 00(40) [  262.006488] APIC error on CPU0: 00(40) and its been causing lockups, hangs, and general problems. my /boot is only large enough to hold one kernel at a time (I wasn't thinking when I did that). Could someone help me get this figured out?00:42
geeksquadevery time starting now i boot my laptop i go to a terminal and i have to startx myself how can i fix this00:42
BLZstegel:  have you tried Envy?  it's not officially supported, but I personally swear by it00:42
Pirate_Hunterraylu: just seemed like it oh well i jumped the gun, well other than compiling exaile from source which would be annoying isnt there a way to get it to work without segmentaion fault funny enough firefox works great without a problem00:42
BLZ!envy|stegel00:42
ubottustegel: envyng is an updated version of the *UNSUPPORTED* envy package. It is now part of the ubuntu universe repository (envyng-gtk OR envyng-qt) we suggest you use envyng if every other (official/supported) method fails! it can have various results from works, to fails!!!  if you want the very latest drivers from the manufacturer you use them at your own risk00:42
BLZthat said, i like it00:43
McFrostyHow Comes my sound doesnt work on my PPC iMac G4?00:43
rayluPirate_Hunter: no idea. though you should consider submitting a bug report00:43
rayluPirate_Hunter: http://moc.daper.net/00:43
BLZMcFrosty:  dunno... what else can you tell us about it?  did you check to see if your sound adapter is supported?00:43
mdgMcFrosty: I had the same problem with 8.0400:43
TheFunkbombCan anyone figure out a way to play Yahoo Literati with ubuntu?00:43
emendoI know this is not the openoffice irc but in their channel it is hard to get noticed. The people are very helpful in this irc and because I use ubuntu it was an obvious choice. So, anyone familiar enough with openoffice's navigator?00:43
McFrostyyes but im using 8.10 PowerPC00:43
xelectroxHi, I get this message while doing the final command to making opendns my permenant dns server: ifdown: interface eth0 not configured. How do i fix/configure this? It seems like no one has an answer......00:44
Jack_SparrowMcFrosty, We dont support the ppc version... they have community support00:44
Jack_Sparrow!ppc00:44
ubottuPowerPC.  Formerly used by Apple for the Macintosh line of computers. Variants are now used in popular gaming consoles. PPC was a fully supported Ubuntu architecture up to and including edgy. It is now a community port, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PowerPCFAQ00:44
mdgMcFrosty: I went to a terminal - alsamixer and turned up the sound there00:44
ScottG489rsquare: so by hardware you mean its definitelly the mouse?00:44
gurphokay... new error00:44
McFrostyty mdg00:44
mdgMcFrosty: Let us know if it works00:44
rsquareScottG489: I don't know if it's definitely the mouse, but I suspect it's the mouse.  If it were the software, I expect it to be more consistent in its error00:44
geeksquadanybody help me00:44
JHook101anyone know how to increase ubuntu performance and speed00:44
stegelBLZ: thanks00:45
stegelthis is pretty easy00:45
BLZstegel:np00:45
McFrostywill do00:45
linxehJHook101: you need to define that a bit better00:45
mdgMcFrosty: Is this the G4 that is white with a round base?00:45
gurph"cannot stat '/root/.gnome'; no such file or directory00:45
BLZJHook101:  well there's a few ways... some risky some not00:45
rsquareScottG489: It also only happens when I left click00:45
rsquareThat's another indicator00:45
BLZJHook101:  what's slowing you down right now?00:45
JHook101Ok how would I increase the speed at which windows open and close on my desktop How would I increase the speed in performance in which program open and close or operate00:45
Pirate_Hunterraylu: ahhhh so much trouble i should probably move to a cli music player since thats what im going to use on the lappy but wmii on the main is so good especially the tabing function :D00:45
rsquareScottG489: Only one way to find out.  I'm going to get a new mouse tomorrow.  If it's still happening, I'll know it's not the mouse, and I can return it00:46
JHook101Well it seems that things are moving a bit slower then they did with windows xp pro installed00:46
domosoAnyone know how to get the left pane tree view back in nautilus?00:46
BLZJHook101:  the formar you can do... i'd google something like "menu show delay" and you can switch to a lightweight file manager like thunar00:46
Jack_SparrowMcFrosty, see also #ubuntu-powerpc00:46
McFrostyyes G4 is white round base00:46
fosco_domoso: press F900:46
domosoThe instructions say something about choosing it from a drop down list. I don't see no drop down list.00:46
JHook101Well how about increasing FPS when gaming on linux?00:46
mdgMcFrosty: I have one to those too  :)00:47
McFrosty:O00:47
j-a-k-ehello, does anyone know how to setup bass redirection to a subwoofer for creatives x-fi driver?00:47
IndyGunFreakdomoso: you can also hit View/and check "Side Pane"00:47
BLZJHook101:  the later is more complicated.  You can try to change harddrive parameters to get faster read times, but that has risks that need to be understood00:47
McFrostywonderful since im new to linux do i have to open up alsamixer with the term?00:47
mdgMcFrosty: yes.00:47
McFrostywould you mind type me "blahblahblah" what to do since im just getting familiar with it?00:48
domosoYeah see, I thought it was that easy too. It's not working. F9 doesn't work. Going to view menu doesn't show a "side pane".00:48
mdgYou use the arrow keys to move left right  and the up/down arrows to increase decrease sound.  Press escape key when done00:48
Pirate_Huntercan someone suggest a good cli music player that doesnt only play songs in mp3 (raylu i did check moc)00:48

MorchubooJolter: How are you mounting the share? Also does /var/log/messages or /var/log/secure shed any light on what is wrong?01:01
nihhijrib: looks like the sudo -u command does what I need it to do01:01
Gh0stymisc---: next time try apt-cache search color picker in a shell ... :p01:02
Jack_Sparrowgerber, did you add a partition below ubuntu..  uuid's change01:02

domosogconf-editor shows the pane enabled. But I'll be damned if I can see it.01:08
mgolischJolter: again does the exports entry contain the hostname/ip of the client in question?01:08
Astr4yjrib: What i mean is, when i do apt-get upgrade, if it sees an updated kernel it will isntall it without giving me the option to deselect it, i'm not using gnome or kde.01:08

jribAstr4y: apt-get upgrade should not pull in new kernels.  New kernels get pulled in with linux-image-generic depending on a new package and the new kernel should only get installed if you ask for it explicitly or apt-get dist-upgrade01:09
nickrudcrazyryan, in a terminal, type   groups  . You should see admin in the list you get back01:09

Toadlipsmgolisch:  literally just the word "nvidia" in the device section?02:17
mgolischno : driver "nvidia"02:17
slipstraylu, then you do 'crc32 filename'02:17

Toadlipsmoglisch:  When I first log in, it says "kinit: trying to resume from /dev/mapper/nvidia_eieaciad6"02:23

gTeaunop, then it proceeds to a regular vim session02:24
Jack_SparrowSonofC4, So you already know to ask in winehq on how to get your game going02:24

ubottuHi! Welcome to #ubuntu!02:25
unopgTea, hmm - that's odd - and there's no Session.vim on my system or within any ubuntu package.02:25

Jack_SparrowSonofC4, HAve you looked in the appsdb for your game02:25
bluedragonhelloo nice to meet ubuntu people lol02:25
gTeaunop, i did install the vim-full package. maybe that could explain it?02:25
bluedragonI have  question if some one can please help me out02:25
iShockmgolisch: Caught you in Windows.02:25
unopgTea, maybe you need to specify the right evim.vim  - that command i gave you uses the last one found - which might not be the right one02:25

CoJaBoDoes anyone know if its possible to move mdadm RAID disks to another system?02:28
bluedragonscreen resolution is 1280 X 80002:29
unopgTea, maybe this.   vim -S /usr/share/vim/vimcurrent/evim.vim02:29
CoJaBoDoes anyone know if its possible to move mdadm RAID disks to another system?02:29
gTeaunop, haha, i do no know. Thanks again for taking the time out. I'm curious about the mechanism used when vim -y and evim calls gvim, though02:29
Morchuboovenport: is that how you want it?02:29
CoJaBooops, didn't mean to post that twice :/02:29
lee1733Is there a program that allows you to have seperate wallpapers using a twinview setup? Aside from making one large wallpaper in gimp. My monitors have different resolutions so this doesn't work for me.02:29
gTeaunop, if i could find out where that happens, i'm sure i could change the symbolic link02:29
venportMorchuboo, now is it going to set its self at the lower resolution every time turn it on now that it's plugged back into the KVM? or is there a way to make it stay02:29
fwaokda_whats the command to unmount a drive?02:29
venportMorchuboo at the moment it is02:29
Jack_SparrowCoJaBo, it is supposed to work.. I quit using raid a few years back02:30
bluedragonso would could be with my resolution02:30
gTeaunop, no dice02:30
Jack_Sparrowfwaokda_, umount02:30
unopgTea, i'm sure it's not a symlink .. as the help topic for 'easy' says - a GUI environment is used if one is available - sounds like vim deciding that for you.02:30
smartguyzflash not working in firfox02:30
fwaokda_Jack_Sparrow, how do i know what to put after it though... how do i find out what my drives label is?02:30
mgolischToadlips: add a line : Busid "1:0:0" to the device section and see if that helps02:30
Morchuboovenport: you will need to add a modeline to the /etc/X11/xorg.conf02:30
Morchuboo!modeline02:30
ubottuA Modeline is a config line in the X server configuration file that gives info about a connected display and how to drive it at a specified display resolution. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XFree86_Modeline for more details. Here are 2 links to generate modelines which fit your monitor: http://bohne-lang.de/spec/linux/modeline/ and http://xtiming.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/xtiming.pl02:30
CoJaBoJack_Sparrow: The problem I had was that on boot the new system immediately began rebuilding it and destroyed all data.02:31
mgolischToadlips: i think the driver is puzzled as it doesnt know which one to use02:31
Jack_Sparrowfwaokda_, sudo fdisk -l  for a start.. man umount for the second but let me see if I have an example for you02:31
butt3rzsmartguyz: did you install the restricted package?02:31
venportMorchuboo, like i said before i'm really new to this (less than 24 hours with linux) how do i change the config file?02:31
venportis there a tut out there02:31

DigitalFizubuntu rocks!02:32
fwaokda_Jack_Sparrow, would my main drive already be unmounted though if im in on a usb drive?02:32
Jack_SparrowUmount: Example assumes the first partition..../eject /dev/sdc1 and umount /dev/sdc1 (with umount you could also use the mountpoint like umount /media/USBDRIVE02:32
DigitalFizi submitted a bug and it was confirmed and being worked on withen an hour lol02:32
Barridushmmm, can anyone answer an easy and quick (i assume?) question about where to install the boot loader for a dual boot ubuntu/xp box?02:32
CoJaBolol02:32
exmachina1yay 64bit flash and java released02:32
Jack_SparrowBarridus, mbr02:32
Morchuboovenport: from a terminal (Applications-->Accessories-->Terminal) type "sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf" this will open the file as admin02:33
BarridusJack_Sparrow, so what would that be then out of the options i am presented with02:33
Jack_Sparrowfwaokda_, you can type mount but it spews lots more than you really want02:33
mgolischexmachina1: is that new? theres been java for 64bit for years02:33
CoJaBoDigitalFiz: I submitted a bug in Firefox 2 years ago and it still isn't fixed :P02:33

matteo_Hi all, i have a RGB cable that connect my new lcd tv to my laptop ( a fujitso amilo PI), my laptop detects the TV but when i apply the new resolution i still see "no signal" on the tv... ANy tips? (with windows all works fine with FN+f4)02:33
exmachina1mgolisch, plugin**02:33
gTeaunop, interesting. Wouldn't that be accomplished with some logic that looks for (gvim) and if it's found, it runs it instead of vim. If so, finding where that logic is and modifying might help, no?02:33
Barridusi can pick sdb, sdb1 through sdb402:34
Morchuboovenport: before you open the file back it up! "sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup"02:34
Jack_SparrowBarridus, single drive or dual.. and it doesnt offer to install grub on mbr..  or are you trying to restore/repair grub02:34
exmachina1mgolisch, you basically don't need nspluginwrapper anymore for flash/java02:34
venportOK will do morchuboo02:34
Morchuboothen read the info about modelines and add the one you want02:34
Morchuboo!modeline02:34
Toadlipsmgolisch: I cannot believe it!!!  Do you know how long I've been trying to get this to work???? :)02:34

gilHey,I'm getting choppy video playback in full screen (Ubuntu 8.04) and I'm getting the impression that it's due to my ATI card. Does anyone know if that'd be the case?02:34
venportGreat thanks lots of help02:35
Barridusi did so but it just skips right by and boots into xp02:35
bluedragonAny one have a solution for a the display being to big i have nvdia drivers install version 177 currenty display mode is 1280 X 800 but everthing still kind of big in windows it perfect plz help02:35
Barridusso i'm assuming i put the boot loader in the wrong place02:35
TheFunkbombNew question.  It seems as though I will only need XP for CS2 and Firefox to play Literati.  Is there an easy way to resize the partition to give Ubuntu more room?02:35
n00b-helpergil:  could be... what drivers have you installed? or are you using the standard driver?02:35
Morchuboovenport: no prob02:35
fwaokda_Jack_Sparrow, well my ubuntu and windows vista both wont boot due to the hdd being messed up I believe. I'm wanting to repair it (thinking its bad sectors or something like that) In windows I'd use chkdsk. What is the equivalent in ubuntu?02:35
dotblankHow do I determine the Product ID of a connected bluetooth device02:35
mgolischToadlips: i had problems like that before, thats why i guessed it needs that busid thing02:35
mgolisch:)02:35
exmachina1TheFunkbomb, resizing your partition is NOT a trivial tisk02:35
exmachina1task*02:35
Jack_Sparrow!fsck02:35
ubottufsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo shutdown -F -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot02:35
mgolischToadlips: you are welcome02:36
exmachina1it's a VERY VERY non-trivial task02:36
TheFunkbombexmachina1, I figured as much :(02:36
techsupportcan someone help me installing HlstatsX ?02:36
fwaokda_ty02:36
Jack_Sparrownp02:36
exmachina1TheFunkbomb, it would be easier to just copy everything you need to a hard drive and just re-inall02:36
exmachina1reinstall*02:36
giln00b-helper: I didn't manually download any drivers, I went into Hardware Drivers, and enabled "ATI accelerated graphics driver" and it download them for me02:36
Barridusi wish i had an idea what to pick here02:36
Toadlipsmgolisch: I think I'll try to find some documentation on how to configure the xorg.conf file so that I can be a little more self-reliant and maybe return the favor to someone else! :)02:36
giln00b-helper: So, I guess that's standard, right?02:37
=== thebleh is now known as ZakK--
TheFunkbombexmachina1, ugh.  I was hoping that wasn't the case.02:37
n00b-helperyes it would be standard02:37
Jack_SparrowBarridus, I asked a couple times how many drives..02:37
Barridusoh i must have misunderstood02:37
Barridusthere are ... 4 drives on this box02:37
smartguyzbutt3rz: what's the name of the file?  I installed macromedia flash plugin....02:37
Barridus2 internal, two usb02:37
Jack_SparrowBarridus, windows and ubuntu on internals?02:38
Barriduswell only one drive is a system drive02:38
Jack_SparrowBarridus, I dont care aboutdata drives just os02:38
Barridusthe others are just for data/madia02:38
Barridusas far as i'm aware, i just need to deal with the one02:38
giln00b-helper: Are there other drivers I should be using or is there something else I should be looking at to get video playing smoothly?02:38
n00b-helpergil:  see my private message02:39
Barridusand need to pick which partition or what not to put the boot loader?02:39
Jack_SparrowBarridus, agreed are both win and ubu on the same drive and which drive is it02:39
Barridusit appears to be sdb, and i want both on one02:39
Jack_SparrowBarridus, is your system set to boot windows on that second drive position..02:40
Jack_SparrowBarridus, assuming windows is sdb102:40
Barridusi would assume so as it just does so without my say so02:40
Barridusyes xp is on sdb102:40
butt3rzsmartguyz: i think it is flashpluggin-nonfree02:41
Jack_SparrowBarridus, and xp has booted from there so sdb is the mbr you want to write grub into02:41
VideoSmithGuys I've got a bit of a problem that I tried to have answered before but didn't get too much of an answer.  I am working on downloading this program.  I got a .tar.gz file and when I extracted, it gave me a folder.  Where do I go from here?02:41
smartguyzflash not working in firefox, can anyone help me had to reload ubuntu02:41
Jack_SparrowBarridus, sda1 is the normal boot drive for windows02:41
BarridusJack_Sparrow, ok so i pick SDB?  the description of such is what appears to be a serial number for the drive hardware02:41
Jack_SparrowVideoSmith, read the instructions on the site where you downloaded that program02:42
smartguyzDedicated UBUNTU 8.04 system02:42
VideoSmithAlright.02:42
BarridusJack_Sparrow, its size appears to be the full size of the drive, not a partition02:42
kelbizzleVideoSmith: or look for and install.txt inside the folder02:42
Jack_SparrowBarridus, that would be uuid02:42
Jack_Sparrow!uuid02:42
ubottuTo see a list of your devices/partitions and their corresponding UUID's, run this command in a !shell: « sudo blkid » (see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LibAtaForAtaDisks for the rationale behind the transition to UUID)02:42

BarridusJack_Sparrow, should i just bounce the box and start over, and put boot loader on sdb?02:49
VideoSmithThis thing is getting pretty old.02:50
Jack_SparrowBarridus, I would start over create manually two ext3 and a swap and Personally I would move cables and move sdb  to sda and go for iut02:50
VideoSmithkelbizzle:  I attempted in another root shell (not that it'd help) and it still gives me that.02:51
exmachina1kelbizzle, pastebin lsmod02:51
BarridusJack_Sparrow, i can't switch the cables, they are two different form factors (system is ide, data is sata)02:52
exmachina1kelbizzle, actually , apt-get wgetpastebin02:52
bluedragonhow do i install a themes gnome-look.com gdm themes seem not work only the gtk.2.x02:52
exmachina1er apt-get wgetpaste02:52
Jack_SparrowBarridus, Ok..  mixing ide and sata has its own set of issues..02:52
Jack_SparrowBarridus, SDB it is02:53
exmachina1kelbizzle, then do "lsmod | grep ath | wgetpaste" and "lspci -vv | wgetpaste"02:53
VideoSmithThis is pretty damn dumb.02:53
BarridusJack_Sparrow, ok i will try sdb02:53
Netham45How would I make a partition that takes up the entire drive from the CLI02:53
BarridusJack_Sparrow, it's sort of what my gut told me but i didn't want to bork the os install without asking someone smarter than myself02:54
exmachina1VideoSmith, did you do ./configure02:54
Jack_SparrowNetham45, mkfs02:54
VideoSmithhmmm02:54
VideoSmithI'll try that02:54
Jack_SparrowBarridus, asking me was your second mistake.. :)02:54

exmachina1VideoSmith, did you do ./configure02:54
Netham45Jack_Sparrow, that'll make a filesystem, not a partition02:54
VideoSmithYeah.02:54
butt3rzbluedragon: drag and drop the archive into the display properties window02:54

Jack_SparrowNetham45, livecd and gparted02:57
alfdavidhello!02:57
vocxbballr: probably never, since it makes little sense to have a new kernel. Only security upgrades are available.02:57
Jack_SparrowNetham45,  gparted-livecd02:57
BarridusJack_Sparrow, install is going.  yeah i know this is a "weird" setup but it's something i cobbled together to test to see if ubuntu will work for the purposes a as-of-yet unbuilt new box will need02:57
Morchubooenovativ: you can also go to Places-->Connect to server, similar to a windows mapped drive then. You may have problems accessing the admin shares though so may want to share out the folders you want on the windows server.02:57
Jack_SparrowBarridus, np good luck02:58

runningduckmgolisch, hmmm, I think Canonical did something odd with my system, a Dell Mini 12 running 8.04+.  maximus is not listed under Startup Programs, only under Current Session.  I have tried many things with the Session applet, but it keeps coming back.  Is there a good ol' fashion text file I can edit to get rid of the thing?03:06

Hodappbluedragon: emulator of what?03:11

bluedragonlike a super emulator for nintendo03:11

VideoSmithDigital8:  alright thanks :)03:12
tropicflitegodFather, do you have a .bashrc?03:12
krazedCan ubuntu use .RPM?03:12
Hodappbluedragon: most of those emulators are at near-perfect fidelity and realtime performance, so "best" isn't particularly meaningful if you regard the consoles as equal03:12
Morchuboobluedragon:  there are plenty. dont do emulation myself - search in add remove programs or synaptic03:12

Cpudan80vocx: gksudo displayconfig-gtk03:12

mgolischkrazed: what product?03:15
Cpudan80vocx: Yes --- you need to run it with gksudo03:15
Digital8VideoSmith: did you untar it?03:15
mgolischkrazed: and i think they have a tar.gz too03:15
Morchubookrazed: the bundle is probably a tar.gz - if so you need to extract it to a folder.03:15
TheFunkbombis there linux spyware?03:15
Cpudan80vocx: You need to edit the menus to A) Display Other, B) Display Screens and Graphics in Other03:15
krazedMorchuboo: It just says .bundle which I found odd03:16
Digital8VideoSmith: such as "tar -xvjf kdenlive-0.7.1"03:16
VideoSmithDigital8:  I selected "extract here" and it gave me a folder that is untarred sort of.03:16

mgolischGodfatherofEire: someone told you before03:20
MorchubooVideoSmith: you didnt leave a space after the cd and before the /03:20
Cpudan80vocx: All that thing does is edit the underlying xorg file ... you could edit it manually03:20
Digital8eimh: i have not used the ubuntu-within-windows method myself, but if you want to play games and all that jazz as seen in some of the videos..i'd go with a full install (assuming you're comfortable doing so)03:21
VideoSmithoh okay03:21
Digital8VideoSmith: type dir in terminal03:21
VideoSmithAlright.03:21
MorchubooVideoSmith: also typing "pwd" will tell you where you are (pwd = print working directory)03:21
Digital8eimh: doing a full install is as simple as rebooting with the dvd in your drive03:21
Digital8eimh: it will guide you to installing it in a side-by-side form,03:21
Digital8eimh: if you have two computers, i suggest that you use a 2nd one to ask questions during the install03:21
Cpudan80eimh: Yes you can install beryl, it works best if you have a good gfx card (non ATI)03:21
VideoSmithI'm at /home/timothy03:22
vocxCpudan80: I know, but it's simpler. Besides, I'd had to read on what exactly to edit. I'm not sure if it's in the "Monitor" section or where.03:22
GodfatherofEiremgolisch, I didnt notice any name flashing03:22
Digital8VideoSmith: you left the space out on the command you pasted us03:22
Cpudan80vocx: yeahh.... did you try apt-getting it?03:22
VideoSmithDigital8:  alright03:22
Cpudan80vocx: sudo apt-get install displayconfig-gtk03:22
Digital8VideoSmith: just do "cd /home/Desktop" to start , and then do dir -- pastebin it03:22

slyf_Good evening all03:45
vocxCpudan80: I don't have the wrong driver. I have the S3 Unichrome Pro integrated graphics card, which used the "via" driver, but since 8.04 it uses "openchrome".03:45
Digital8VideoSmith: just a moment03:45
VideoSmithDigital8:  If it means anything, although I'm using Konsole, it's GNOME desktop.03:45

Cpudan80vocx: hmmm03:46
techsupportanyone here familiar with hlstatsx ?03:46
adreignssnoo i know in  8.04 it worked when i added it to ect/modules03:46
crdlbvocx: unfortunately, I'd say you've kind of been left in the dust; the actively maintained open source drivers are getting better modesetting and xrandr stuff, so ubuntu has moved away from manual configuration03:46
j-a-k-emgolisch: im not too sure what im doing really.. The windows drive is sdb (the 160gig ide master) ubuntu is on sdc the 30 gig ide and the sda 320 gig  a sata drive03:46

n00b-helperadreignss ... and what steps did you take to get it working?03:47
vocxcrdlb: but, are you sure I can't override this from xorg.conf? I just need a few Modelines or such, right?03:47
adreignsspulseaudio is playing when i look at the volume meter but no sound out of speakers03:48

crdlbvocx: I would guess so, but I don't know anything about modelines03:48
adreignssi had to add sound card to ect/modules  but not in 8.1003:48
Cpudan80crdlb: But xorg.conf doesnt do anything ...03:48
Morchuboo!modeline03:48
ubottuA Modeline is a config line in the X server configuration file that gives info about a connected display and how to drive it at a specified display resolution. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XFree86_Modeline for more details. Here are 2 links to generate modelines which fit your monitor: http://bohne-lang.de/spec/linux/modeline/ and http://xtiming.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/xtiming.pl03:48
n00b-helperadreignss:  see my private message03:48
puffn00b-helper: Well, I was trying to follow this tutorial:  http://www.ubuntugeek.com/howto-setup-bluetooth-keyboard-and-mouse-in-ubuntu.html03:48
shan3butt3rz: it doesnt work... with the no password option in sudoers...03:48
n00b-helperpuff:     how far did you get?03:49
puffn00b-helper: The keyboard lights up and the bluetooth symbol glows bright blue on it, so I assume that the batteries are god.03:49
crdlbCpudan80: eh?03:49
n00b-helpermakes sense03:49
Cpudan80crdlb: isnt the xorg.conf file totally deprecated ?03:49
butt3rzshan3: what window manager are you using?03:49
vocxCpudan80, crdlb : In other PC, I had an nVidia card. I used the restricted manager to install the proprietary drivers, and it all went smooth, except the resolution was incorrect. So I used "displayconfig-gtk", selected the correct monitor, and it all worked perfectly. This was in 8.04, though. I'm telling you, this displyaconfig is the greatest thing, how come it lasted only one round?03:50
shan3xfce03:50
puffThe keyboard docs at dell say hold down the button on the back to make the keyboard detectable. The tutorial says run hcitool scan.  No results (well, hcitool sees my neighbor's mac, two floors away, but).03:50
shan3butterz ^03:50
heloit seems that the launchpad netbook remix install instructions are incomplete... it doesn't mention anything about adding netbook-launcher to the gnome session, or what to disable so it will run properly... are there some other instructions for NBR in intrepid?03:50
shan3butt3rz: xfce03:50
Cpudan80vocx: you could do something unorthodox ....03:50
puffThe keyboard has the MAC - actually I presume it's the "bluetooth device ID" - on the back.03:50
crdlbCpudan80: no, how do you think choose nvidia and fglrx?03:50
butt3rzand you have the option 'sudo shutdown -h now' in your slim.conf?03:50
n00b-helperpuff, can you see my private message?03:50
Cpudan80vocx: put the HH repos in and grab that deb03:51
Cpudan80crdlb: hmmm I was under the impression that it was all HAL files now03:51
j-a-k-emgolisch: so I'm guessing I need to set the boot device to hd1,0 then?03:51
Cpudan80crdlb: at any rate - it doesnt work exactly the same as before, some of the mode options dont work anymore03:51
Digital8VideoSmith: just to test out while you're waiting on me, try this03:51
Digital8VideoSmith: i want to see if we can resolve a couple of those first03:52
Digital8VideoSmith: sudo apt-get install ffmpeg inigo03:52
mgolischj-a-k-e: yeah try that03:52
crdlbCpudan80: yes, the xorg.conf is being slowly killed, but afaik it should still work for this03:52
j-a-k-emgolisch: alright, I'll let you know how it goes. Either way, be back soon.03:52
VideoSmithDigital8:  http://pastebin.com/m15a507af03:53
vocxCpudan80: I tell you, xorg.conf still does stuff. I don't know what you had to mess with, but HAL? That sounds creepy.03:53
Cpudan80vocx: not hal directly03:53
Cpudan80vocx: some stupid little files it reads03:53
mgolischvocx: sure it does03:53
Cpudan80why on earth they deprecated xorg.conf ...03:53
mgolischthey did not realy03:54
mgolischyou can still set stuff there03:54
crdlbthe driver should be able to modeset properly without user intervention03:54
vocxCpudan80: I like the way it is now. It's simple. You can override stuff and don't bother about what you don't know.03:54
crdlbthat the via driver cannot is a bug which needs to be fixed03:54
Cpudan80mgolisch: seems like they broke it apart before the ducks were lined up03:54
mgolischworks flawless here03:55
Digital8VideoSmith: what all do you have checked under software sources? on the first tab there03:55
mgolischhad xorg working with my 260 gtx with just one click in jockey-gtk03:55
mgolischto install and setup the nvidia driver03:55
vocxcrdlb: just for clarification, it's the "openchrome" driver now.03:55
crdlbvocx: ok, but I meant the driver for via hardware :)03:55
puffAnyway, according to the tutorial the next step would be to add a device definition for the keyboard to /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf03:56
mgolischworked instantly with 1920x120003:56
mgolisch:)03:56
VideoSmithDigital8:  I can't copy paste it, but there are two things there.  I'll type them out.03:56

batcoder-7is xfce not so light anymore or what ?04:13

SJrXI keep having very buggy desktop effects in Ubuntu 8.10, title bars that become title, the squishy effect on windows never stopping, etc...04:14
VideoSmithAnd so I just copy-paste that whole bit in?04:14
Digital8VideoSmith: that first one (ffmpeg) went smooth04:14
beetlejuice_mastGEDIT not allowing ppl to open files thru SFTP?04:14
SJrXHow can I change the number of clicks required to activate an item in the task bar?04:14
eseven73batcoder-7: its' put on a bit of weight from what ive heard too. Could just be a rumor though, its still lighter than KDE and gnome04:14
beetlejuice_mastany php programmers in here?04:14
SJrXI am, beetlejuice_mast04:14
beetlejuice_mastwhat editor u use?04:15
shan3eseven73: yes definitely lighter04:15
SJrXI use an editor called Kate, that comes with KDE, it has the best syntax highlighting I've ever seen.04:15
beetlejuice_masti need to be able to edit remotely thru SFTP and gedit only allows me to open read only04:15
beetlejuice_mastdoes it have SFTP support?04:15
batcoder-7shan3, i still want a DE ;) fluxbox was good in 95 though :P04:15
SJrXDunno, my guess would be yes, since KDE supports almost anything.04:15
SJrXYou may want to consider, if you have SSH access, SSHFS however.04:16
beetlejuice_mastsshfs?04:16
Digital8VideoSmith: how's the next round coming along?04:16
VideoSmithDigital8:  http://pastebin.com/m2a4e1d1d04:16
shan3batcoder-7 there are a few good fluxbox distros out there...04:16
VideoSmithDigital8:  Seems smooth :)04:16
batcoder-7shan3, like ?04:16
Digital8VideoSmith: paste in    sudo apt-get install kdebase-runtime kdelibs5 libmlt1 libqt4-dbus libqt4-svg libqt4-xml libqtcore4 libqtgui4 inigo04:16
Digital8VideoSmith: ill see what the deal is with libmlt++104:17
batcoder-7fluxubuntu is not one of them ;)04:17
shan3batcoder-7: i use linux mint fluxbox04:17
SJrXsshfs allows you to access your files that are on another machine that you have ssh access too, it's really cool. Provided that your user is in the fuse group, then you can simply type "mkdir ~/remote_folder" then "sshfs user@host:/ ~/remote_folder" and you can access it exactly like it was your own04:17
batcoder-7shan3, yea now that might be good is it debian based?04:17
shan3batcoder-7: its not the lightest fluxbox distro but it has everything04:17
VideoSmithDigital8:  http://pastebin.com/m4353f3d004:17
beetlejuice_mastnice04:17
shan3batcoder-7: its based on ubuntu04:18
batcoder-7i seee04:18
beetlejuice_mastidk about my user being in the fuse group04:18
Digital8VideoSmith: take the failed one out again04:18
batcoder-7lightest is not what i care about just light ;)04:18
SJrXBut I'd still switch to kate, as I love it's syntax highlighting, it knows almost everything and has a butt that just won't quiet.04:18
SJrXquit04:18
batcoder-7ubuntu has a big following which keeps packages up to date04:18
beetlejuice_masti'm using GNOME is that going to be a problem?04:18
Digital8VideoSmith: libmlt1 that is04:18
SJrXNope04:18
SJrXI have to suffer with GNOME for the moment now too.04:18
Jack_Sparrowbatcoder-7, But also note we dont support mint users04:18
batcoder-7shan3, xubuntu i am sure is still much lighter then regualr ubuntu04:18

mgolischAsad2005: just use passwd05:25
tanis143And now that I've given up gaming, I've got to find something to waste my time with05:25
eseven73rebooting really is a windows concept, usually not needed in Linux05:25
iggykoopatekster: once you build the driver you may need to run sudo modprobe [the module name]05:25
teksteri see05:25
teksterhave to figure out how to do that05:25
iggykoopai know the intel one is snd_hda_intel depends on the driver05:25

bluedragonwhat up with adobe flash in fire fox it kind of sucks05:26
davidmaflannel, pici: BUG FILED  oops sorry05:26

tanis143Godfather, its the prtscn key, just have to hit shift05:27
davidmais Wine usable?  I last played with it in 1995.05:27
jalonsomgolisch: tanis143: is it blank by default?05:28
tanis143david, I use it just fine05:28
mgolischjalonso: locate uses an index file, it only holds files/folders of the time the index was created05:28
GodfatherofEire1tanis143, nope05:28
tanis143I dunno, jalonso, I'm a newbie myself05:28

If I needed to rebuild my box for a dual boot machine that's booted into ubuntu 90% of the time for programming and multimedia work, and winxp for 10% of the time for some gaming, should i be looking at intel cpus, or amd? and which sort of video hardware should i look for that will give decent cross-platform support?06:15
nickruddavidma, get virtualbox and run xp/vista in there. You can run them in their native environment, no subtle bugs due to wine06:15

DarkSotM_joljam: What kinda scripts?06:43
microchip420kk, just a sec06:43
mgolischrokr1: i think i saw that somewhere, i think it had to do with some of the wlan stacks configuration modules not properly detecting the country settings from the device firmware, it had to do that with some country profiles certain wlan channels can not be used or something06:44
smartguyznsadmin: no I already have the latest 1 o files updated....06:44

nickrudtritium, I wouldn't expect anything to actually use those static devices anymore. Back when I was following kernel stuff, roughly during the switch from devfs to udev, the talk was of simply dropping all the static stuff. some complained, so the static ones got moved.07:11

lolwutushimitsudoki: I can right click a folder to enable sharing, but it says that I do not have permission07:28
ushimitsudokilolwut: in Nautilus?07:29

SaidaHey07:29
lolwutushimitsudoki: I did dl the windows file sharing thing just now07:29
DarkSotM_Cotowar: I can't find it but basicly it encrypt your file system and keeps the key on a usb drive so you can't boot with out it let alone read anything07:29
Cotowaryea, thats what im talking about07:30
johninlex_cid thank you and I will do more studing on these two and get them working and again thank you for your help07:30
Knottswhy would enabling any Nvidia grafix driver through hardware drivers, cause ubuntu to freeze on startup after restart?07:30
DarkSotM_try looking up truecrypt07:30

balrog__im having trouble with xournal, the input is not acting correctly.  there seem to be edges for the stylus on the xournal paper that i cant draw over, but the paper extends beyond the edges of the stylus limits.  anybody know how to troubleshoot xorg.conf (on Intrepid) still?07:30
CotowarPS, i need to get an ironkey07:30
ushimitsudokiKnotts: do you know where in the process it is freezing up?07:31
DarkSotM_Cotowar you pry don't need an ironkey07:31
_CidCotowar:  thats not a real vurnability :-)07:31
Knottsushimitsudoki: it freezes before login, right after loading page. thats all i can tell.07:31
Cotowarlol. but it fricking explodes if you dont know the pw07:31
Terinjokesbazhang: i don't think i'm going to get it working07:32
_CidCotowar:  did you hear about the security leak in the keyboard? ...someone can enter commands and get output back :)      Physical access can't be made 'hacker-safe'  ...I get the feeling we are drifting off-topic here btw07:32
DarkSotM_if you just encryp the files in the file system and save a few bucks07:32
Terinjokesi can install a binary, because one hasn't been compiled (and released), and I can't go from source, because then I have to track down all the packages needed to do that07:32
Knottsushimitusudoki: only way i can get around it, is to use the fix xserver command.07:32
Terinjokesbazhang: ^^^07:32

ushimitsudokiKnotts: Did you try to use grub to boot into single mode? This will give you the command line instead of going right into X. Then, you can use "startx" to try to load X. That way you might be able to see the errors better. Maybe take a look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log07:32
fabius11help install ubuntu 8.1007:33
lolwutushimitsudoki: Nautilus has nothing to do with sharing over a network does it?07:33
CotowarCid: nah i mean the way its set up. USB for example, does not have direct memory access, thus the OS knows what you are doing, and can prevent memory overflows. granted, there are software workarounds, but im just saying, Ubuntu has no clue what you are sending over firewire.07:34
ushimitsudokilolwut: no. that is why i don't understand what you are talking about right-clicking on. I use NFS to share files myself. Samba is another option.07:34
Terinjokeslolwut: samba is a popular way of sharing over the network (windows sharing)07:34
fabius11c'e qualcuno italiano?07:34
Knottsushimitsudoki:  how do i boot into single mode with grub?07:34
aatahey i know this isnt the perfect place to ask, but could anyone recommend a really quick/fast booting distro that i can run on my desktop primarily for web browsing and music?07:35
CotowarDoes anyone here follow ReactOS? its basically an opensourced version of Windows XP07:35
ushimitsudokiKnotts: at system boot, you should be able to press "ESC" to see the grub menu ... like after your BIOS loads and devices are checked ... in the menu that comes up then, it should be the second option ... this is from memory but I think it's right07:35
TerinjokesCotowar: i do07:35
Cotowaraata: ubuntustudio is a good media version, or try Xubuntu, as its really low profile07:35
davithello i was wondering if i could get some assisstance with chmod on a extgernal drive07:36
TerinjokesCotowar: been a while since i've looked though07:36
lianimatorthe latest update has made Image Viewer open very slowly..07:36
rogermuddaata" I think #! (Crunchbang)is a popular choice here along with Arch.07:36
lolwutTerinjokes: I am looking to create file sharing over my local network, but between this ubuntu box and 2 macbooks07:36
Knottsushimitsudoki: ok thanks. using the root command line.  so i should go ahead and try to load a driver again. and  use the startx command from root, right?07:36
CotowarTerinjokes: same here, i was just wondering how far they were with it...not that i need it07:36
aatacotowar ubuntustudios a bit too hardcore i just need it for basic browsing/flash and listening to music... im trying to set the computer up for my kids07:36
SaidaOk here i got again lol, I have a Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g WiFi Adapter in my Hp G50 laptop.  I dual installed 8.10 Desktop edition of Ubuntu and everything went well.  Then when i got to the desktop right after I install Ubuntu I tryed to turn on my wireless adapter and I had no luck.  "Also LAN Line isnt working either"  So I enabled  the wireless network and no networks showed when I left click on the little computer monitor icon nect to t07:36
chenhello,every one.07:37
ushimitsudokiKnotts: the driver should already be loaded ... you can see it in the boot process or check /var/log/dmesg ... then you can either "startx" or "init 3" to get X up. For troubleshooting, I would just startx as root, just to see what happens. that's where i would start anyway07:37
rogermuddaata: Have you tried Xubuntu?07:37
davithello i was wondering if i could get some assisstance with chmod on a extgernal drive07:37

techsupporthow can i get nano to show line numbers ?07:38
Cotowaraata: oh, maybe go with fedora? its probably the most user-friendly distro after ubuntu when new users are concerned. it does everything you need, and its reasonably fast.07:38
Terinjokeslolwut: a little out of date, but might help07:38

aata?07:39
adam7aata: yep07:39
Cotowareliza does movies, music, and photos i believe07:39

Cotowarits a great program, i absolutely love it07:39
aataadam7 ill check that out07:40
TerinjokesCotowar: i've never used it for anything good... on my PPC system, almost as slow as XP07:40
Knottsushimitsudoki: one more question please. how do i look at /var/log/xorg.0.log or /var/log/dmesg ?07:40
JCDGhey does someone know any program to make movies, as simple as Movie maker?07:40
aataadam7 cotowar what about debian?07:40
ushimitsudokiKnotts: you can use less "filename"07:40
ushimitsudokiKnotts: you can look at them without being root07:41
CotowarTerin: I had it set up on an old dell at college. we had quite the system going for file sharing, and used the Dell to play all the vids on the giant TV.07:41
davitfirefox||: I enter chmod -R 777 and i get chmod: missing operand after `777'07:41
adam7aata: it's pretty fast too, at least last time I tried it07:41
Cotowaraata: I know nothing about Debian07:41
Cotowaraata: try going to www.linux.org, and looking around there07:41
ushimitsudokiKnotts: if you want to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf you will need to do so as root, using something like "sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf"07:41
Cotowaryou will find many things that might work for you07:41
aataadam7 cuase i just installed eee-debian on an eee pc and with a custom kernel got it to boot up in < 30 secs07:41
ushimitsudokiKnotts: you will not be editing logs in /var/log obviously07:41
aataso i was just thinking ....07:41
Cotowarget a solid state drive to boot from07:42
Knottslol obbbvious to you maybe. haha07:42
FireFox||davit:  is that read and write all?07:42
Cotowaractually don't. they are expensive07:42
adam7aata: Debian might be a good idea if you're used to Ubuntu07:42
Cotowarooooooo!!!!07:42
CotowarIdea time!07:42
davitfirefox||: yah07:42
aataadam7 i was thinking just install a basic text based system (debian)07:42
Cotowarokay, so you know those little tiny MicroSD cards that go into phones?07:42
aataand then install something like lxde07:43
aataon top of it07:43
FezzlerI used Window Shade Rollup effect to hide a running app, now I can't get it to drop down again???? Can't lose data!07:43
SaidaThank you Ubottu I think I found a solution07:43
Terinjokesaata: or jump over to Gentoo and have fun07:43
adam7aata: yeah, that would work well07:43
ushimitsudokiKnotts: look for errors in /var/log/dmesg and /var/log/Xorg.0.log. If you can't figure anything out, then pastebin them so someone in this channel can take a look07:43

FireFox||Check out that website davit there is an easy overview07:44
FireFox||http://www.catcode.com/teachmod/07:44
adam7aata: you probably could :)07:44
CotowarI was thinking about making an array of MicroSD cards and booting my OS from there via eSATA connection on the front of my laptop07:44
Knottsushimitsudoki: sorry for the trouble. but what command i use to view the logs? just typing the location in term doesnt show me.07:44
ushimitsudokiKnotts: less07:44
Cotowarhow plausible is this?07:44
davitfirefox||: ok ill look over it now07:44
adam7Cotowar: you could do it, but chances are those cards are really slow07:44
ushimitsudokiKnotts: like this: less /var/log/Xorg.0.log07:44
dr_willisCotowar,  theres secure, theres paranoid. and then theres Tin-Foil-Hat Paranoid. :)07:44
adam7Cotowar: HDD would be much faster07:44
Knottsno such file/directory07:44
nsadminaata ubuntu (or debian, or gentoo, or slack, or linux kernel + libc + gcc + bash) can be a basic text-based linux07:45
FezzlerPlease don't let me lose hours of data due to  Desktop Effect!07:45
Cotowaradam7: not necessarily. they are basically mini solid state drives07:45
ushimitsudokiKnotts: no no that can't be right ... at least I hope not. check spelling ... and use TAB-completion to make sure you get the file name right07:45
adam7Fezzler: how did your roll the window up07:45
adam7Cotowar: so are SD cards07:45
dr_willisFezzler,  metacity --replace to disable the effects perhaps..  I didtnt hink the rollup stuff was a 'effect' a lot of windo wmanagers have that.07:45
butt3rzthere is a minimal install ubuntu that is text based also07:45
adam7Cotowar: and SD cards aren't very fast07:45
Cotowarthe only reason people don't do it already is they have a limited number of write cycles07:45
Knottsok tyvm that got it open.07:46
FezzlerDouble click title bar07:46
nsadminFezzler: ok, back up your storage :)07:46
adam7aata: you could do an Ubuntu server install07:46
FezzlerApp is Blender07:46
CotowarI was thinking RAID 0 on like 10 of them07:46
ushimitsudokiKnotts: at this point you are looking for lines preceeded with (EE) - errors07:46
Fezzlernsadmin> :)07:46
adam7Cotowar: if they get 5MB/s read, then you're just approaching the speed of a SATA drive07:46
aataadam7 hmmm i think im going to go with debian i like the way it works with apt-get :P07:46
Cotowarthey get 20MB/s07:46
Knottslol, is there a "Find" feature in term? cuz this list is looong.07:47
CotowarI looked around for a long time, found all the info on them, down to the pinouts and which are the data lines07:47
nsadminFezzler one pont I'n trying to make is you're responsible for your files... there's no "letting" you lose your data07:47
Cotowaralso found the microcontroller to route the data, similar to striping on a standard RAID controller07:47
ushimitsudokiKnotts: yes, you can use grep ... like this: grep EE /var/log/Xorg.0.log07:47
FireFox||Cotowar: so you have a real raid controller for hooking up a lot of cards?07:48
Fezzlernsadmin>> Thank mom!07:48
Knottstyvm ushimitsudoki07:48
CotowarI want to build it07:48
CotowarI think it can be done07:48
nsadminFezzler: and no one else is your mom too, besides your mom :P07:48
adam7Cotowar: but what's hte point? (other then it sounds cool)07:48
Knotts(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)07:49
DarkSotM_wow midnight already07:49
Cotowaradam7: its fast, and if you buy enough drives ($16 a pop or less), you can outperform a solid state drive, and can boot in like 5 seconds07:49
adam7Cotowar: but then you'll be limited by CPU07:49
Cotowaradam7: I was also thinking about installing it in my car07:49
adam7Cotowar: and I'm still not convinced they are that fast07:49
Fezzleradam7>> I think Blender didn't like the rollup effect or my graphics card doesn't07:49
Cotowarthey are07:49
davitHello how can i make ubuntu see an external drive as a flash drive07:49
adam7Fezzler: now that's possible07:49
adam7davit: plug it in?07:50
Cotowari didnt believe it myself07:50
ushimitsudokiKnotts: alrighty then, how about you check dmesg and see what's up there. You can use something like: dmesg | grep -i nvidia. Don't paste results in this channel, use pastebin and link07:50
davitadam7: i wanna make it usb startup disk but it wont show up in menu07:50
adam7davit: why do you need to make an external drive a flash drive?07:50
adam7oh07:50
ushimitsudokiKnotts: oh also, check if the nvidia driver is loading: lsmod | grep -i nvidia07:50
Knottsok ushimitsudoki,07:50
davitadam7: i dont have a large usb flash drive so i using external one07:50
Knottsuhmmm. how do i use the pastbin and link?07:51
Fezzlergot it back!  saved.  will not run blender windowed again!07:51
adam7!pastebin > Knotts07:51
ubottuKnotts, please see my private message07:51
FireFox||Cotowar: I also think that the number of drivers in RAID0 , however very effective and performant wont profit very much from a 9nth driver or 10th extra07:52
CotowarI was mainly thinking embedded systems OS, if you couple with a nano-ITX mobo would work nicely in a car for those car computers07:52

FireFox||Also you might be interested in the SD to SSD boards arround07:53
FireFox||not very expensive07:53
CotowarFireFox: as long as you dont have more data throughput than the cable can handle, you'll be okay. and the computer can handle it as far as CPU clock cycles, seeing as those are in the billions. you can get a 3.3GHz wolfdale for like $16907:53
Cotowarwhat are theese SD to SSD boards?07:54
Knottsis this correct?                   http://paste.ubuntu.com/103416/07:54
FireFox||they allow you to place let's say 4 SD cards on a board and convert this in to 1 space available as SSD07:54
Cotowaryea, thats kind of what im thinking about07:55
ushimitsudokiKNotts: also pastebin your /etc/X11/xorg.conf pls07:55
adam7Cotowar: you can do the same thing easily with a USB hub, a couple of flash drives, and fakeraid07:55
Cotowarnot as small though, and USB maxes out at 480 MB/s whereas Sata is 3GB/s07:56
davitis thre anyway to make an external drive an installer?07:57
useruseruseruserggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggunit07:57
CotowarI did think aobut trying with a 96 GB/s infiniband cable, but I don't have hundreds of $$ to drop on this stuff07:57
FireFox||Cotowar: I actually think your cheaper off to buy a real ssd, these things are getting very cheap.:)07:57
CotowarYea, but its not as goony07:57

Cotowarand I can't save up money like that very well07:57
Knottsushimitsudoki: http://paste.ubuntu.com/103418/07:58
CotowarI have to buy little pieces07:58
adam7Cotowar: I think that if it were as simple as that, we would all be using SSDs now07:58
Cotowarthe trouble is that SD cards are flash based, and have limited write cycles07:58
DarkSotM_davit: like a usb installer?07:58
Cotowaryou would wear out an SD card in a couple months if you used it for a normal HD07:58
davitDarkSotM_: yah07:58
Cotowarhowever, if you are booting from it, you aren't writing to it as far as I know, so you can use it much longer07:59

ushimitsudokiKnotts: one more thing pls. i want to check that you aren't loading the nv driver too. check: lsmod | grep -i nv ... is the just plain "nv" module loaded?08:00
Cotowaralso if you wanted to you could try to set up a RAID 5 on it, so you don't lose your crap when a drive finally fails08:00
DarkSotM_davit: It tells you how to put the cd on a usb drive to test/install whatever and it has it for more then just ubuntu  www.pendrivelinux.com08:00
Cotowarhonestly though, it is cheaper financially to do it with microSD cards, the real cost comes in labor08:01
CotowarIDk, it was jsut an idea08:01
Cotowari might try it with the christmas money I got, but we shall see08:01

DarkSotM_my main gripe sofar with ubuntu is I can't get twin working08:04
Doonzhow do i make the system rescan for a new drive?08:04
Cotowaradam7: youre saying just do an aptitude install gtk2-engines?08:04
adam7Doonz: just run fsck /dev/sdx where sdx is the name of the drive08:04
adam7Cotowar: yep08:04
Knottsushimitsudoki its a fresh install aswell, it worked fine untill version 8.04 and 8.10, when i upgraded, i cant get my grafix drivers to work :(08:04

adam7!envy | gerob Knotts08:11
ubottugerob Knotts: envyng is an updated version of the *UNSUPPORTED* envy package. It is now part of the ubuntu universe repository (envyng-gtk OR envyng-qt) we suggest you use envyng if every other (official/supported) method fails! it can have various results from works, to fails!!!  if you want the very latest drivers from the manufacturer you use them at your own risk08:11

MoguriMy ubuntu 8.10 64bit install is running really slow for some reason. Like laggy slow. And I'm running an Intel Core 2 Duo T8100, 3GBs of RAM and an NVIDIA 8600m GT. Also, my themes like to disappear on occasion and I have to restart gnome-settings-daemon to get them back. Any ideas?08:11

Flannelmichaelyao: That's your install CD.  You can disable that if you'd like.08:13
ushimitsudokiKnotts: and if you try to startx now, with the new xorg.conf? same error?08:13
MoguriI think tomorrow I'll install the 32bit version to see if I get better results.08:13
gerobadam7: when i install the nvidia drivers i lose my Xserver.  when I boot normal it goes to tty108:13
=== pablo is now known as pabloguion
gerobadam7: and I can't restore it with a xorg backup08:13
Knottsushimitsudoki: i have to reboot to startx again correct?08:13
ushimitsudokiKnotts: no08:14
tritiumgerob: use the ubuntu restricted drivers manager, not downloads from nvidia.com08:14
adam7gerob: try sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.old-`date` then reboot08:14
pabloguionhello. i need somebody explain me some concepts about DKMS08:14

pabloguioni have this error Error!  Build of fglrx.ko failed for: 2.6.27-9-generic (i686)08:15
Knottsushimitsudoki: http://paste.ubuntu.com/103425/08:15
gerobadam7: right now I am on a fresh install and havent bothered even trying the graphics drivers yet.  I think my xorg.conf would be empty wouldn't  it?08:15
Cotowarhow do i get dual monitors working in 8.10? i have a known good monitor, and it works fine on the same computer in 8.04, but 8.10 doesn't even know its there08:15
ushimitsudokiKnotts: just startx ... not sudo08:16
tritiumpabloguion: why are you building it?  It's already packaged for you.08:16
Knottsits on that pastbin also ushimitsudoki08:16
tritiumCotowar: with the screen resolution applet08:16
MoguriDoes a constant 30~40% cpu usage on an Intel Core 2 Duo in 8.10 sound normal? It seems quite high to me :s08:17
adam7gerob: should be -- is it not working?08:17
adam7Moguri: are you using the System Monitor?08:17
ushimitsudokiKnotts: ah i missed that ... hold one08:17
Knottsushimitsudoki: 10 down is just startx lol08:17
pabloguiontritium i'm installing a packet i did myself08:17
Moguriadam7: That and the top command.08:17
gerobwell I dont have visual effects or 3d capability at the moment08:17
Knottsushimitsudoki: sorry for the confusion08:17
adam7Moguri: ok -- don't use the system monitor, because it itself takes like 30% of one core on my AMD system08:17
Moguriadam7: But not both at the same time. I realize the system monitor uses a fair amount of cpu.08:18
gerobadam: well I dont have visual effects or 3d capability at the moment08:18
ushimitsudoki1: delete ~/.Xauthority and try "startx" - no sudo again. 2: if you still get locking errors, reboot.08:18
ushimitsudokiKnotts:  1: delete ~/.Xauthority and try "startx" - no sudo again. 2: if you still get locking errors, reboot.08:18
adam7Moguri: does top say what is using the cpu?08:18
RoyallMy mouse keeps right clicking without me asking it to08:18
ushimitsudokiKnotts: these are a different class of errors than what we originally started talking about08:18
RoyallLike, sporatically, randomly, every 5 seconds or less08:18
lee1733I am getting this error -> AUDIT: Sun Jan 11 01:35:06 2009: 9558 X: client 4 rejected from local host <- in my X log. Could someone have a look at my xorg.conf and make sure everything is correct? http://paste.ubuntu.com/103417/08:18
Moguriadam7: Highest is udev with 11% o.O08:19
Moguriadam7: Than xorg with about 10%08:19
RoyallI'm writing something in Geany and suddenly I'm undoing things08:19
Cotowartritium: the applet doesnt see the external at all. its like its not even plugged in.08:19
lee1733Royall: Is overtype on?08:19
Knottsushimitsudoki,  lol ok. can u tell me how to do that exactly please?08:19
MoguriAnd things are slow. Like there is lag just from typing. o.O08:19
adam7Moguri: xorg is fairly normal, although if you aren't doing anything it shouldn't be doing anything08:19
ushimitsudokiKnotts: 1: rm ~/.Xauthority08:19
RoyallNot just in Geany08:19
RoyallEverywhere08:19
adam7Moguri: this computer is using 64 and it is fine, not slow at all08:20
RoyallJust rightclick menus popping up08:20
adam7Royall: desktop or laptop?08:20
Moguriadam7: I must have messed something up than :s08:20
Royalllaptop08:20
adam7Royall: you sure you aren't hitting the touchpad with your hands?08:20
pabloguionmmm im sorry, my error is Error!  Build of fglrx.ko failed for: 2.6.27-9-generic (i686)08:20
pabloguion:P08:20
RoyallTried unpluadafaf08:20
RoyallThis is terrible, I'm rebooting08:21
pabloguionand then Error!  Build of fglrx.ko failed for: 2.6.27-9-generic (i686)08:21
Knottsushimitsudoki: http://paste.ubuntu.com/103429/08:21
pabloguionthen Consult the make.log in the build directory but it is clean08:21
Moguriadam7: I think it may have been a theme I tried to use or something. Cause, gnome-settings-daemon keeps crashing too :s08:21
adam7pabloguion: why don't you just use the fgrlx shipped with Ubuntu?08:22
gerobadam7:  If I try envyng-qt, is there some way for me do a backup so I dont have to download all the updates again if it crashes?08:22
Moguriadam7: But I can't tell if it was this way before doing things since I just did this install today, and a bunch of other things :s08:22
Cotowarcompiling from source is ./configure | make | make install right?08:22
MoguriCotowar: I think so, yes.08:22
ushimitsudokiKnotts: alrighty then. re-start again and come back again in single mode. right after logging in, try "init 3". If you are getting locking errors, that is better than the first error where nvidia wasn't even loading. I have to go for a little while, so try that and if it doesn't work, prepare a paste bin with the information we already looked at so someone else can easily pick up08:23
Cotowarthought so08:23
pabloguioni need to remake it to use propietary drivers08:23
adam7gerob: in /var/cache/apt/archives there are a bunch of packages. if you copy them to another disk before you reinstall and then put them back in /var/cache/apt/archives before you update, you won't have to download all hte updates08:23
pabloguioni have an ati radeon 9250 is very problematic08:23
MoguriCotowar: Well, one at at time ;)08:23
ushimitsudokiKnotts: if you are still around when i get pack i will ping you and see how it went. good luck08:23
Moguripabloguion: 9250's in Ubuntu is a pain :s08:24
Knottsushimitsudoki,  thanks alot for ur time. enjoy ur day08:24
adam7Cotowar: you don't want to pipe the output08:24
pabloguioni know it08:24
pabloguion:D08:24
adam7Cotowar: do ./configure && make && make install08:24
pabloguioni know how to install 3d support in free drivers08:24
gerobadam7: ok ill stick them on my 8gb usb drive08:24
