Flannelnick_[nex]: If your homefolder isn't on its own partition, yes.00:00
teenbeat2007hi guys00:00
dr_willisnick_[nex],  it will want to format the / parttion. so yes basicially it will.  Unless you got /home/ on its own parittion.00:00
Aroghey can someone show me some good UIs for Ubuntu00:01
yow|laptopkintarotpc - that happened to me during testing an alpha and i had to switch to metacity as the wm and it went away00:01
usserwhoDat: /lib/modules00:01
kintarotpcyow|laptop: hmm. It only started after a recent reboot and I did have some effects enabled. Thanks for the hint.00:01
nick_[nex]hmm is there any way around this? my home folder is *huge*, and i have no way of moving it00:01
teenbeat2007any one experience with ubuntu 64 bits00:01
whoDatusser: there is no lib directory on the cdrom starting at the root00:01
usserwhoDat: on the live cd?00:01
Flannelnick_[nex]: fire up a live CD, erase everything else on the partition, and make that partition your home partition?00:02
whoDatyeah00:02
usserwhoDat: hm im not sure where it is. sorry00:02
Flannelnick_[nex]: Unless you have enough space ot just move it to its own partition00:02

ubottunick_[nex]: Your home folder is where all of your personal files are usually kept. For moving your home folder to a separate partition, please see: http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/separatehome00:02
yow|laptopkintarotpc - when you get the white screen, try pressing Alt-F2 and type metacity and press enter, see if that works00:02

hmullerFlannel:  Will apt-get automatically remove dependencies that an app installed?00:51
owhFlannel: Since when is that?00:51
jribowh: and doesn't take anything else with it?00:51
Flannelowh: Since autoremove00:51

w3wsrmniShock: I believe it's possible to split a DVD into CD sized ISOs, but I doubt the installer would realize the split, and never prompt for the other disks.00:52
Flannelhmuller: At least, as far as I'm aware.00:52
iShockw3wsrmn: It's the windows 7 ISO00:52
owhardchoille: No. However, it automatically removes dnsmasq-base.00:53

John`Anderzoni have a little problem with Ubuntu... just installed it and there are some small vertical lines that kinda flash on the screen and is especially apparent on a dark background. how do we correct this?00:53
sysadminis there any who can help me out with the data recovery using ubuntu ?00:53
ardchoilleowh: dnsmasq-base may be dependent on the main app you installed, therefore it can't reside without it and needs to be removed00:53
hmulleriShock: and I assume you've no DVDrom drive?00:54

sysadmini have just attached that hard drive to my new system based on ubuntu ?00:55

ardchoilleowh: that's not how it works with the command you used00:56
hmulleriShock: kvm works good too, if you have a processor that supports virtualization00:56

sysadminthank you Vigo00:59
ardchoilleowh: suppose you install a package and it installs 4 deps. using "aptitude purge" may not uninstall all deps but "--purge-unused" will uninstall the package and all "unused" deps00:59
sysadminill have a look now00:59
sysadminbut is it possible to retrieve data from that disk though using Ubuntu01:00
sysadmin?01:00
vigoMy pleasure01:00
Flannelsysadmin: Assuming there's no damage, yes, of course.01:00
yow|laptopJohn`Anderzon - look up your vert and horizontal rates for that monitor and the refresh rate and then compare that to what is in your xorg.conf. you may need to try out some different settings and manually edit the file.01:00
sysadminthank you Flannel01:00

gerberDo you know any Free Point Of Sales ?01:01
owhardchoille: The rdepends for netcat-openbsd and dnsmasq-base are almost identical - the difference is that dnsmasq-base rdepends on dnsmasq. As far as I can see they're the same.01:01
Flannelgerber: What?01:01
John`Anderzonok ty so much01:01

John`Anderzoni checked out my xorg file the only lines that mention 'video' say "configured video device"01:03
gerberI download one But i Dont know how to load it pls help01:03
ardchoillehmuller: yw :)01:03
jribowh: I don't feel like reading aptitude source and can't find documentation on the meaning of the numbers in /var/lib/aptitude/pkgstates, but I would look for differences there next01:04
yow|laptopearthmeLon - in that case, if you are going to use init.d then you will need to create scripts and then link each of them to the corresponding runlevels in which you want them to start and then restrict them to only that user. just my 2 cents, someone else may have a better idea01:04
hmullerAny trac users in the room tonight?01:04
vigogerber: what did you download?01:04
orflona program asks me for openssl >= 0.9.7 , but I have already 0.9.8, what could I do?01:04
earthmeLonyow|laptop  So, if I create a script in init.d, how do I restrict it to only run when that user logs in?01:04
yow|laptopJohn`Anderzon - is this a single boot machine? have you tried a different live cd? a different driver perhaps? just trying to rule out a hw issue or a driver issue.01:04
jriborflon: provide more details01:05
John`Anderzonit had the same problem when i booted from the live CD01:05
jamnzI need to manage available log on times for two user ID's. They are to log on during hours of 3pm to 4pm each day. how do I apply this log on time in Ubuntu 8.10?? Thanks!01:05

FloodBot3!netsplit01:06
vigogerber: I have no idea what that is, but maybe someone that saw it can assist.01:06
orflonjrib, I'm on a live cd 8.10, and I'm trying to install wvstreams. It says in the end missing depedency openssl, >=0.9.7 needed, but I do have 0.9.8 already. Ask me anything else you need, thanks mate.01:06
owhjrib: That's an excellent suggestion.01:06
ubottunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like Freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit01:06
VideoSmithWhat's with all the floodbots?01:06
yow|laptopearthmeLon - well thats why i suggested using sessions cause its easier that way, tbh, im not sure how to restrict it to one user. you can login still within your current account by using an xsession window and logging in as your proposed user there01:06
jriborflon: what is the name of the package you are installing?01:06
John`Anderzonit's dual boot but with the other OS is installed on another HD01:07
orflonjrib, I install it from source, it's wvstreams version 4.4.101:07
eseven73VideoSmith: they're here to protect us against Microsoft! You didnt know that already? :P01:07
jriborflon: why?  wvstreams seems to be in the repositories (not that version in particular)01:07
yow|laptopJohn`Anderzon - does it have the same monitor problem on the other OS? what is the other OS?01:08
John`Anderzonnope01:08
John`Anderzoni only have this problem with ubuntu01:08

ubottuThe packages in Ubuntu are divided into several sections. More information at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories and http://www.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/components - See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecommendedSources for the recommended way to set up your repositories01:24
eseven73Jams44: read those ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^01:25
jribJams44: repositories is the online location of the packages you install.  The alternate cd only has the main repository on it.  So if packages you have installed are not on the cd, they won't get updated unless you let it grab packages from the internet01:25

hyperairon a NEC Versa E6500,  the notebook's mouse and touchpad don't work. however usb keyboards and mice work. does anybody know what could cause this issue? it doesn't work in single user mode either, leading me to believe that there are issues between linux and the PS/2 controller. it seems to work on solaris, and windows, but not on anything that uses a linux kernel.01:26

John`Andersoni was talking to a friend on another network, and we got into the subject of windows security issues.. and i told him, i think pretty honestly that its a marketing tactic01:28

earthmeLonHello!! I need to figure out a way to run SAMBA on user logon instead of at startup.. I only want samba to run if a specific user logs in.01:28

John`Andersonup until a week ago i was using Win98, and microsoft no longer offers support or patches for it. Why? because they cant make money off it no more :P01:29
dr_willisearthmeLon,  the samba-doc pakcage has all the info you would ever want on samba - if its doable - it may be mentioned in there.01:29

earthmeLondr_willis  It makes perfect sense to me.  I only want to run the service if my main user logs in.  Not if a guest user logs in.  It has nothing to do with samba, it has to do with Linux/Ubuntu.  The samba docs will provide little/no help in what I'm trying to do01:30

IndyGunFreakMatillo: i told you earlier01:32
Matillowell, I need further explanation, and just switching to alsa didn't fix the problem.01:33
earthmeLonMatillo  you need to install ALSA and/or PulseAudio.  Check the ubuntu docs page01:33
yow|laptopcant pulseaudio do that?01:33

yow|laptopMatillo - is pulseaudio or alsa selected in your sound settings? what does alsamixer show?01:37
hmullerearthmelon: Add the startup commands to .xinitrc in each users home directory, and if necessary adding their names to /etc/sudoers for the startup?01:37

Radjaffarkelshac: That's a pretty cpu intensive flash application in general.01:38
yow|laptopMatillo, hmmm. its possible that it could be a restriction on your sound card. did it ever work for two inputs?01:38

hmullerearthmelon: remember the /etc/sudoers file is modified using visudo01:39
bthorntonjaffarkelshac: Which version of Ubuntu and what arch?01:39
earthmeLonhmuller  after I add my user to this list, I will be able to sudo foo without request for password?01:39
yow|laptopwell, that uses different drivers. pulse is a fairly new thing in linux and my understanding is that using two simultaneous audio devices is relatively new territory01:39

RadI bet it's the calculations in the actionscript01:40
earthmeLonhmuller  thanks, but it seems all I have to do is add my main user to admin users01:40

VixyI do have one more question. In terms of installing Ubuntu. I'd like to at first isntall it on a secondary drive that I have (two sata drives, one 500GB and the other 750GB) Reason being is I'm a bit of a gamer still and would like to keep my windows installation for now. If at a later time I decided to get rid of windows all together, is there a way to have my comptuer boot directly to Linux even though it's on the secondary drive02:00
Vixy? Or would I have to reinstall it on the primary drive?02:00
comradekinguBax_: Sudo lshw -C video02:01
ahecklerVixy: yes there is a way through GRUB, the Linux bootloader, although it's probably a bit of a stretch to explain it now02:01
Vixyaheckler: I wouldn't want it even if you could. Hehe, Not right now anyways, seeing as how I would be exploring with ubuntu first. But it's good to know that there is a way to do that.02:01
wolterwhere are the official spca5xx drivers for ubuntu?02:02
usserVixy: just remove harddrive with windows when installing ubuntu, that way it will think its alone, and completely self contained, you can use bios boot menu to choose which hdd to boot02:02

Cpudan80usser: thats not a good idea02:02

usserCpudan80: yea but he said he wanted to keep windows sort of separate02:03
Cpudan80so what02:03
usserVixy: not really with satas it doesnt matter02:03
Cpudan80The bootloader isnt part of windows02:03

Vixyusser: And then when I do re-put in the hard drive, how will the computer know which to go to? I know you said in the bios, but I've had hard times before booting to different operating systems when things go wrong.02:04
yow|laptophe wants to just pull the other drive at will02:04
yow|laptopthats the way i took it, i could be wrong02:04
VixyO_o02:04
Cpudan80thats not a very good idea02:05
VixyI think I'm confusing people ^^;02:05
usserVixy: they will be completely independent, one os wont know about the other, and bios bootloader is usually something like F12 when computer boots, at least on dells that is02:05
yow|laptopVixy - its just a not a very typical way to do things, thats all02:05
Cpudan80Vixy: what are you trying to achieve ?02:05
Cpudan80Vixy: and what is your HDD setup now02:06
aheckler@Cpudan80 - Vixy: I do have one more question. In terms of installing Ubuntu. I'd like to at first isntall it on a secondary drive that I have (two sata drives, one 500GB and the other 750GB) Reason being is I'm a bit of a gamer still and would like to keep my windows installation for now. If at a later time I decided to get rid of windows all together, is there a way to have my comptuer boot directly to Linux even though it's on the secondary drive02:06
VixyLet me explain. I have right now Vista Ultimate on my main hard drive (sata 500GB) I have a blank secondary hard drive (sata 750GB) that I would want to install Ubuntu on. At a later date, I might wish to get rid of windows all together, and I was just wondering if it was possible to have the computer automatically boot to that secondary hard drive automatically with windows gone.02:06
wolterwhere can i get a working gspca for intrepid ibex?02:06
Cpudan80aheckler: Yes - you just change the default boot option for grub02:07
Cpudan80!info gspca02:07
ubottuPackage gspca does not exist in intrepid02:07
Cpudan80:-(02:07
ahecklerCpudan80: haha that was Vixy's original question, not mine :)02:07
FlannelVixy: Are you looking to overwrite your windows bootloader right now?or no? or you don't care?02:07
Cpudan80aheckler: heh ok02:07
macmanhmm.. the palm thing works .. i just can get pictures02:08
macmanit syncs everything else but that02:08
jer3my!AR242x02:08
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about AR242x02:08
VixyFlannel: No no. As I said earlier, I'm a gamer. I'd still like to be able to use my windows installation, but I'm saying at a later date when I get rid of windows, to have the computer boot to linux on the secondary drive like it was on the primary.02:08
jer3my!Atheros AR242x02:08
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about Atheros AR242x02:08
jer3my-.-02:08
Cpudan80Vixy: you can do that with a standard installation02:08
ahecklerVixy: installing a new bootloader wont effect windows02:08
=== zeb is now known as zesss
aheckler*affect02:09
Cpudan80Vixy: The bootloader allows you to choose which one to start up02:09
FlannelVixy: Yes, "overwriting the bootloader" doesn't mean can't boot to windows.  It would only affect it if you removed Ubuntu, you'd have to do a few steps to boot windows.02:09
usserCpudan80: but if u install grub on primary disk and later remove it wouldnt it break things?02:09
[TiZ]Hi. My ellipses... the triple periods that appear when text is too long... they're turning into accented capital Es. It happens in the window switcher and in Firefox's tabs. I can't really pinpoint when it happens, it's kind of random. Does anyone know anything about this?02:09
Cpudan80usser: oh I see02:09
usserCpudan80: remove the disk that is02:09
Cpudan80usser: well yes - but its not hard to reinstall grub02:09

djabbourare there any good resources for converting blu-ray movies to MKV files under linux? I found several tutorials and applications for Windows but can't seem to find any linux-specific resources?02:10
yow|laptopVixy - i think it comes down to how often you would be booting between the OS's02:10
VixyFlannel - Cpudan80: So pretty much when I install Ubuntu on my secondary drive it will create the "bootloader" which will give me the option of which to start up in. At a later date when I get rid of windows, I can just adjust the bootloader to automatically go to linux?02:10
Tyrathdoes this mean anything to anyone: QSettings: failed to open file '/etc/qt3/qt_plugins_3.3rc' ?02:10
zesssanyone know of a good http mail program for ubuntu02:10
Cpudan80Vixy: yes - you just reinstall it02:11
VixyReinstall the bootloader?02:11
Tyrathzesss: http mail program? gmail.com would be one02:11
zesssto check hotmail02:11
Cpudan80Vixy: yes - the bootloader has to go on the primary drive02:11
Tyrathzesss: hotmail.com ?02:11
Cpudan80Vixy: if you remove it - then you have to reinstall it02:11
Tyrathzesss: i'm not sure an HTML program is what you're looking for02:11
Tyrathzesss: programs are seldom written in HTML unless they're located on a server02:12
zessstryath im asking if there is a mail program like claw that will check my http mail also as well as my pop302:12
VixyCpudan80: So even though nothing else would be on that primary hard drive because I "uninstalled" windows, I would have to have the bootloader as the only thing on there to point the computer to my secondary hard drive?02:12

FlyboarderSylphid: oI had some bad sectors in my drive that i repaired with windows02:20
jtajiadam_: http://www.pathname.com/fhs/02:20

maryellenHey Gang. Running 6.06.2 here and I don't find  keytouch  in the repositories. Am I missing something? or blind?  :-)02:24
ahecklereseven73: 2GB is plenty but if you just change the partition then ubuntu will not recognize it and then it wont use *any* swap02:24
n8tuser2jer3my -> what does sudo lshw -c network tell you about your wifi?02:24
jer3myNothing in there about wifi.02:24
maryellenThe reason for asking is that my son bought me a nice 'multi-media' kbd and I read in the forum that keytouch is the simpliest way to get it setup.02:24

jer3myn8tuser2, That its not enabled or drivers are missing, I have tried a guide that was talking about installing madwifi but it still doesnt work.02:27
enovativyow|laptop: i thought i could use linux to make the usb stick bootable......thru research i have found that i could use cfdisk to make the usb stick bootable.  In using cfdisk i was able to pick out the options that i wanted but once i "write" to the usb stick...i get that error i mentionaed earlier.02:27

Joe_eseven73 this has probably been my hardest upgrade yet, but a lot of it was because I wanted to get my new mouse/keyboard fully working... and Logitech sucks in that they don't have Linux drivers03:41

ZuckusFIlllex0: check PIM03:41
vigoandresmh: It gives an option to flash,,,is rather handy03:41
eseven73Joe_: odd, my Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse work great in Linux03:41
andresmhvigo: Flash block will help me if I wanted to block Flash, but my problem is that Flash stops working after a few hours of browsing and I do want Flash to continue working.03:42
Guest94563eseven73 downloading and installing03:42
dragon1can someone guide me to troubleshoot audio.....? I am using ubuntu 8.10 and not able to hear any sound or play video in movie player..03:42
Joe_eseven73 MX5500 Revolution, no open drivers for the keyboard (got it mostly working, only 5 extra buttons not working so far and half of the LCD features)  Got the mouse all working (required upgrade to intrepid, hardy just didn't like it)03:42
vigoandresmh: this plugin allows or does not allow, is based on what you decide when flash is wanting to run,,the h2g2 was not working, I installed that, it works fine now.03:43
DasEi!sound | dragon103:43
ubottudragon1: If you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer). If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP303:43
Joe_eseven73 had a nice bonus of now my wife will NEVER touch my computer... 5 monitors and a mouse with 15 buttons just confuses the hell out of her :P03:43

andresmhi'll try it out!03:44
andresmhdo you have by default that it blocks out all the Flash content?03:44
joborociroboroquhow can i play need for speed, medal of honor and so on on ubuntu?03:44
vigoandresmh: Is still online in the Comm64/Amiga mode03:44
dragon1DasEi: yes when i try to play it gives error as "Could not get/set settings from/on resource."03:44
vigoandresmh: Yes03:44
andresmhinteresting vigo, I'd like it so by default it plays all Flash. do you think that would help?03:45
DasEi dragon1: this is what alsamixer gives out ?03:45
Joe_oh... here's another small thing I can't figure out, in Hardy (and the live CD for intrepid, but that's just 1 monitor) the desktop switcher (on my tool bar) uses small squares for the desktops... but when I upgraded they became these massive rectagles (twice the size of hardy)... how do I resize them, I like having 4 workspaces but that just takes up way too much room on my toolbar03:45

MakuseruHi, I seem to be having a problem with a program. It's too long horizontally to fit on my screen, but when i grab the edge to resize it it only lets me make it even longer, i can't  make it any shorter. Anyone know what would cause this, and how i could fix it?03:54
e75hmm, well in my xorg.conf its not hardly specifying anything.03:54
Joe_grumble, why does nvidia-glx-96 not work?03:54
earthmeLonOkay guys, I am getting really upset.  All of my input fields in FF are typing backwards.  I can't use CTRL+A to select everything and moving the cursor with the arrow keys fails.  Does anybody have any suggestions?  I've restarted FF.  It remedied the problem, but only for a few minutes.  Help will be GREATLY appreciated03:55
miranda_psie75: the new ubuntu doesn't put much in there as it uses other methods, but you can put the usual xorg.conf stuff in there and it will work03:55
tritiumJoe_: is that the proper driver for your card?  There are much newer versions.03:55

tritiume75: so why the sad face?  That's good news.03:59
jillian876thanks.03:59

dragon1DasE1: yes04:00
TheFunkbombI'm not exactly sure what I want to do with Ubuntu yet.  Seems kind of a waste just to use it the same way I'd use XP04:00
jillian876miranda_psi - what is the terminal command to open /etc/fstab in text editor04:01
tanis143Actually, thats why I switched04:01

jillian876thanks04:01
tanis143But I've gotten bored with games so I decided to do ubuntu for a month with no windows on my pc04:01

earthmeLonDasE1  ubuntu is what I use.  Latest kernel.  I re-installed FF.  Seeing if it fixes it05:01
Joe_please... X appears to be broken... very very bad...05:01
ernzGmail as default app, evolution database linking for contact applet compatibility, in-browser compose mailto links and notifier all in one how-to Hikeractive. Just the sort of thing I WANTED half an hour ago. I'm sure other people would be interested too.05:02
IndyGunFreakjuiceypoo: no.. seems kinda counter productive though counter productive.. xubuntu is for older hardware, compiz, can be quite resource intensive05:02
ltgganyone? ... any help?05:02
eseven73Compiz in Xubuntu is an Oxymoron05:03

dy_server  eu.undernet.org 700005:03
ernzHikeractive: Do you know how to make a new thread on ubuntuforums.org?05:03
eseven73dy_: that's a no no.05:03
HikeractiveHmm, I know Gmail IS integrated by default in Firefox -- just go to Preferences, Applications and search for mailto. The contact comp. might interest others.05:03
Joe_DasE1 yes, though an irritatingly broken one (doesn't scroll with more input and arrow keys don't work...), I have to switch to another screen (CTRL+ALT+F2) then back to see the new input...05:03
juiceypooi just am sick of windows and wanted to learn about a new os05:04
koshar1juiceypoo you can have as many window managers as you like, if you want gnome, (default ubuntu window manager just install it, with sudo apt-get inastall ubuntu-desktop05:04
oxymoroneseven73, that's what I get for using a noun as a nick :D05:04
juiceypoowell lol...a FREE os05:04
IndyGunFreakjuiceypoo: that makes sense, but you can always research the best choice.05:04
eseven73oxymoron: haha yep :)05:04
juiceypooyes, i guess i listened to my friends first and google was thrown out the window05:04
jskrolleseven73: thanks for whatever that was, but it did not help evolution mail :-(05:04
ernzHikeractive: Yea, that's the idea. The mailto links are actually handled by an addon called WebMailCompose in my solution.05:05
eseven73ah well jskroll least now you'll have everything you need to play mp3s/videos ;)05:05
Necrosancan't perform an upgrade for some reason05:05
IndyGunFreakjuiceypoo: xubuntu is good, nothing wrong with it, its just kinda geared towards older hardware, so compiz and xubuntu, just doesn't make much sense05:05
Necrosansays it can't calculate05:05
jskrolleseven73: cool05:05
koshar1IndyGunFreak IMHO the choice od desktop manager is a preferentual one, i actually like flux and use it on some machines that kde or gnome could reside quite welel05:05
eseven73jskroll: have you tried thunderbird?05:05
DasE1Joe_:if your x is broken, backup /etc/X11/xorg.conf and do : sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg05:05
juiceypooi understand, so ubuntu would be a better choice for running compiz?05:05
Hikeractiveernz, since it's built in on the latest versions of Firefox, I would use the native -- just instruct people on HOW to do it. I'll check out the Ubuntu forums question for you.05:06
eseven73juiceypoo: yep05:06
jskrolleseven73: you would say that now that Ive worked so hard and dumped my gmail account in evolution05:06
IndyGunFreakkoshar1: i agree, it is definitely preferential.. but if he's wanting to use compiz.. it just seems a normal gnome or kde install would make more sense05:06
koshar1IndyGunFreak many eeepc users use xfce with compiz05:06
ernzHikeractive: I know a lot of people who prefer to rely on web-based email apps like Gmail. It's nice to have it all in one place. Nobody has done a comprehensive guide on making it all "Just work" (which people seem to obsess about in the Linux community)05:06
IndyGunFreakkoshar1: i didn't say it couldn't be done, i just said it doesn't make much sense to me.. i use regular gnome on my AAO05:06

ubottuLTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server.05:06

abz!intrepid05:06
ubottuUbuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) is the current release of Ubuntu. Downloading: http://releases.ubuntu.com/8.10/ - Features: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/81005:06
Joe_DasE1 as I said earlier... I was trying to fix an issue where (after upgrade to intrepid) my glx wouldn't work (using nvidia-glx-96), I found /usr/lib/libGLcore.so.1 was a symlink to the old drivers so I removed it and recreated with a symlink to the correct one, did the same for libGL.so.1 and restarted X... now it doesn't work05:07
eseven73jskroll: lol i spent an hour trying to get Seamonkey working with gmail just this morning, failed and went back to Thunderbird05:07
HikeractiveYou go to FF3's prefs, then to Application tab, then search for mailto. You can select Gmail as a default there.05:07
koshar1IndyGunFreak while i see your point i still dont concur , compiz can run fine with any desktop manager that supports it05:07
jskrolleseven73: I have an idea: Could it be that I'm trying to access music from another user on my pc?05:07
juiceypooi wonder if im the only 12 year old running xubuntu :P05:07
IndyGunFreakkoshar1: well, then don't concur, i didn't ask for your approval of my opinion05:07
IndyGunFreakkoshar1: and i never once said you couldn't run xfce and compiz05:07
koshar1juiceypoo i doubt it05:08
ernzHikeractive: Negatory. I see "Yahoo!" mail. No gmail by default though. :(05:08
eseven73jskroll: hmmm could be, im not really a sound guru so i couldnt say for sure.05:08
ltggis there another Ubuntu channel where someone new to Linux might get some help?05:08
jskrolleseven73: ok05:08
ernzHikeractive: Perhaps it installed on your FF3 alongside a toolbar or something?05:08
jskrolleseven73: thinking with my fingers, I should just try it05:08
koshar1IndyGunFreak i definately didnt set out to offend you just i beleive your view is incorrect05:08
Hikeractiveernz, no, default install. In fact, I just installed last night onto my netbook. Which version are you running?05:09
eseven73jskroll: are you using pulseaudio?05:09
IndyGunFreakkoshar1: well, like i said, if i'd wanted your approval, i'd have asked for it..05:09
DasE1Joe_:k, I see, the hint for reconfiguring xorg works on ibex too, but I'm out for upgrading issues05:09
ernz8.10 w/ FF3 3.0.505:09
ernzHikeractive: 8.10 w/ FF3 3.0.505:09
juiceypooi didnt mean to start that argument lol05:09
HikeractiveHmm... that's peculiar. Same here. Maybe the Better Gmail 2 Add on did it.05:09
juiceypoowould i be able to find gnome or compiz on the synaptic package manager?05:10
ernzHikeractive: I'll test your theory.05:10
eseven73yep juiceypoo05:10
Hikeractiveernz, it's the only addon that I have presently installed.05:10
juiceypoothanks eseven05:10
IndyGunFreakjuiceypoo: its not an argument, he's trying to suggest i said something that i didn't.05:10
koshar1juiceypoo yes, to install gnome as i said earlier, use ubuntu -desktop and for kde , use kubuntu-desktop ect..05:11
juiceypooim just yankin ur chain05:11
NecrosanHow do I update ubuntu with apt-get dist-upgrade/05:11
Joe_DasE1 it seems the issue is that I had manually installed Nvidia 169.12 in hardy, when I upgraded it went to ubuntu's version of the 96.43.09 driver... but left all the symlinks as they were (pointing ot 169.12 drivers)05:11
Necrosanis there a guide somewhere? update manager is borking05:11
Necrosan2009-01-11 22:37:30,949 ERROR Dist-upgrade failed: 'E:Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.'05:11
ernzHikeractive: Interesting: Still no Gmail application05:11
ltggthanks for nada folks05:12
eseven73juiceypoo: thats the nice thing about ubuntu, theres over 23,000 apps for it, if you look on wikipedia for comparison of linux distros, most of them only have like 10K or 5K apps in the repos05:12
tonsofpcseseven73: and how many of them work right from the official distros?05:12
juiceypoodang thats alot of apps, ill be having my fun :)05:12
tonsofpcsand are you counting true apps or packages?05:12
koshar1IndyGunFreak "it doesn't make much sense to me" 30 lines up, and it makes perfect sence to me why people would use compiz with xfce, and i gave an example with a EEEpc,05:12
DasE1Joe_:did ibex overtook the xorg.conf of hardy ?05:12
tonsofpcsbecause ubuntu requires about 12 packages for an app that on deb required only one.05:13
ernzHikeractive: U got any google apps or products installed elsewhere?05:13
Hikeractiveernz, I just read that some people, like me, DO have it as a default. Perhaps it depends on whether you upgraded from a previous version to the latest or not.05:13
Hikeractiveernz, and no.05:13
IndyGunFreakkoshar1: and thats why its an opinion, if you don't liek it, "/ignore indygunfreak", no quotes, will fix your problem05:13
Joe_DasE1 yes, it all worked find minus the glx failing to load, which AFAIK is because these symlinks are all wrong05:13
juiceypoolol05:13
koshar1IndyGunFreak whatever05:13
eseven73tonsofpcs: according to wikipedia, appz, but who knows really05:13
Joe_DasE1 manually putting the symlinks back to the way they were lets X start up, without working glx05:14
Joe_DasE1 (thank god)05:14
Hikeractiveernz, alternatively, while at gmail.com, you can type this in the location bar, and it will allow you to set gmail as default: javascript:window.navigator.registerProtocolHandler("mailto","https://05:14

koshar1juiceypoo choose the ones you want to use, it comes down to choice at the end of the day, you are not even locked into apps by window manager, most apps will run fine on any window manager. lots of people use amarok on gnome, xfce... and firefox on KDE.05:16

Joe_DasE1 definately not an xorg issue (xorg.conf.failsafe failed to load as well), it's something to do with the upgrade not doing what it should have and migrating everything over to the "new" way05:16
koshar1modjor you could use an fstab line with specific priveliges rather than using hal05:17
ernzHikeractive: Would have been a nice idea. There are too many steps for a n00b. Either way something needs installed. It may as well be webmailcompose which is configurable and supported by documentation.05:17

remuHello everyone, quick question. I like using Geany to edit .c .java .html, and pretty much all source files that I deal with. Though currently I have to either open Geany and then use that to open a file, or right click the file and choose Geany to open it. If I just open the file on its own it opens up in Gedit. How can I set it so all source files are opened with Geany? I tried looking in "Preferred Applications" under System>Pre05:29
remuf. But either I'm blind or the option isn't there.05:29

scuniziNecrosan, you can't go direct.. unless you fresh install05:29
NecrosanOh, duh.05:29

Dr_futurehello, I installed irssi but I couldn't find it in applications, any help please?06:11
jinja-sheepDr_future:  It's terminal irc.  Run irssi in the terminal.06:12
Titan8990Dr_future, im pretty sure irssi is a CLI irc program06:12
christozDr_future, just type on shell, irssi06:12
Dr_futurehmm, yeah, I'm new to Ubuntu06:12
DarknezzZuckusFIll and jeeves_Moss: i think everyone is having this problem at the moment.....06:12
Titan8990Dr_future, if you are looking for a GUI irc client for ubuntu, xchat and chatzilla are good06:13
Dr_futureTitan8990, But how could I update those programmes?06:13
DarkKnighti enabled desktop effects and other effects through compiz fusion..andmy system has become very slow....how can i retain these effects and still make my system faster06:13
Dr_futureTitan8990,  they have the latest versions in WIndows06:13
Titan8990Dr_future, typically, you just wait06:13
Titan8990Dr_future, unless a new version has a fix or feature that you must have06:14
koshar1DarkKnight faster hardware06:14
Titan8990Dr_future, then you can compile the source for the program06:14
calebh2Darknight: download the settings manager for compiz06:14
DarkKnightkoshar; i meant any settings to be changed06:14
Titan8990Dr_future, it is doubtful you will ever need to however06:14
NecrosanFlannel: After editing sources to hardy and sudo apt-get update then what?06:14
Necrosansudo apt-get dist-upgrade?06:14
koshar1DarkKnight see calebh2s post06:14
DarkKnightkoshar1; i meant any settings to be changed06:14

NecrosanFailed to fetch http://mirror.ne.gov/ubuntu/dists/hardy-security/main/binary-sparc/Packages.bz2  MD5Sum mismatch06:15
Dr_futureTitan8990, for instance, I want to update firefox to the latest version, and ubunto 8.04 comes with version 3, but I want to update it to the latest version 3.05 how could I do that?06:15
DarkKnightcalebh2; yes i have it in preferences--->advanced desktop effects06:15
Titan8990Dr_future, What is the purpose of the update?06:15
FlannelNecrosan: update then dist-upgrade, yeah.06:15
Dr_futureTitan8990,  to fix many things06:16
Titan8990Dr_future, what problems are you having?06:16
Dr_futureTitan8990, sorry, but that's illogical, I wouldn't notice those security holes for instance, it's not my job, I have to update it to the latest version that's all06:17
DarkKnightcalebh2; what am i supposed to do now06:17
koshar1Dr_future the versions in the repos are generally the latest stable builds however if you hare not running the latest distro you can use backports, personal builds  or compile from source06:17
calebh2DarkKnight: mess around with the settings. I have run compiz on an old intel intigrated grapics card before06:17
Titan8990Dr_future, download the firefox package from the mozilla website here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/products/download.html?product=firefox-3.0.5&os=linux&lang=en-US06:17

rachubuntu is not playing dvd's06:18
rachplease help06:18
Titan8990Dr_future, the repos will always be behind main versions for two major reasons A) manpower B) ubuntu devs add patchs to software thus taking longer06:18
koshar1Dr_future by the way the latest version in the repos is 3.0.5 for firefox06:18
rachI have vlc and did all the command to get libdvd06:18
rachstill nothing06:18

rxsrach: what dommds did u do ?06:19

Dr_futureby the way, do I have to install a firewall on ubuntu?06:30
Dr_futurewindows is much easier really06:30
Dr_futurebut Linux is very interesting06:30
Dr_futurewelcome bakc Titan899006:30
jinja-sheep!firewall | Dr_future06:30
ubottuDr_future: Ubuntu, like any other linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'iptables' command (see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo), or GUI applications such as Firestarter (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE).06:30
Dr_futureback06:30
jinja-sheepMeh.06:31
aminaOr maybe I could do it through http - is there a simple,stupid way to setup a ftp/http (whatever the easiest) fileserver with ubuntu?06:31
Titan8990Dr_future, yes, ubuntu has a firewall but it is not nescessary06:31
jinja-sheepDr_future:  I'll find you a link.06:31
Dr_futureok jinja-sheep06:31
rachrxs: this DVD plays perfectly on the other 3 Ubuntu Hardy machines here ...06:31
Titan8990Dr_future, in windows you have network services installed by default06:31
Titan8990Dr_future, and you have to concern youself with malware "getting out"06:31
Titan8990Dr_future, this is not the case in linux06:31

jinja-sheepDr_future:  Brush up on your reading skills.  It is an overview of all security practices in Linux -- http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/security06:31

rxsrach: yes looks like a new dvd and the css keys are not there .. it needs to get them ... okay .. try this .. in ur home dir ... ~/..dvdcss/   .. u will see the keys ... try copying them from teh machines in which the dvd wirks06:31
jinja-sheepAnd no, you don't really need Firewall. :)06:32
Titan8990Dr_future, they exist but there are not "in the wild" only from direct attacks06:32
aminaOr maybe I'm on the wrong channel...where should I go for ssh/scp help?06:32
Titan8990Dr_future, but the sudo feature of Ubuntu more or less protects you even from those existing viruses06:32
Titan8990amina, missed your question, sorry06:33
rxsrach: check in ~/.dvdcss06:33
jinja-sheeprach:  Do you have DVD reader?  Or is it very old machine you're trying to use?06:33
Dr_futureTitan8990, I see, I have to learn more about this interesting OS :)06:33

Titan8990Dr_future, also, if you ever get into managing servers, you will find that windows is not easier06:33
Dr_futureTitan8990, Anyway I have downloaded firefox the extension is tar.bz2, how to react with it?06:34
DarkKnighti enabled many desktop effects and they are making it slower...can anyone tell me which effects make it slower....i tryied enabling and disabling...but i m not able to find out06:34
rxsthat will make this dvd work for sure ... I am not sure about the others ... but if the machine can connect to teh net and fetch keys .. then others too shld06:34
jinja-sheepDr_future:  How do you react with it in the past?06:34
Titan8990Dr_future, did you already uninstall the existing version of firefox from synaptic?06:34
Dr_futureTitan8990, no06:34
Dr_futureDo I have to?06:34
rxsrach: do you see any keys that have the name of the dvd  title ?06:34
jinja-sheepYou drag and drop in the add-on window.   Or I do this... Add the plugins through the "Firefox Addons"06:35
rachrxs: yes06:35
Titan8990Dr_future, yes, and this version will need to be uninstalled manually06:35
aminaTitan8990, I'm downloading stuff from a computer to another (I'm on a third machine, sshing into one of the others) using scp and I can't go faster than 20KB/s, which is really slow.06:35
Titan8990Dr_future, compiling from source really defeats the purpose of using a distro like ubuntu06:35
rxsrach: try copying that and see if it plays06:35
Titan8990Dr_future, but I will still show you how if you want06:35
Dr_futureTitan8990,  you mean, that tar.bz2 is a source code?06:35
rachrxs: nope .. still no joy06:35
Titan8990Titan8990, scp is not a speed oriented protocol06:35
Titan8990lol06:35
Titan8990amina, scp is not a speed oriented protocol06:36

Dr_futureTitan8990,  yeah I want to experience this , for learning purpose at least :)06:36

Starnestommyblurr: staffers of what?08:12
blurrstarnestommy, freenode?08:12
Joe__Cid ok, mainly I just need to know what PCI-E slot it has (it's old, and I put it together years ago), just want to make sure it'll support a new graphics card before I buy it08:13
Starnestommyblurr: join #freenode and state what you need there08:13
CAiRO__2: well, maybe your router isnt doing what it should do?08:13
_2CAiRO_ ?   it's a ubuntu box08:13
blurrstarnestommy, thnx08:13
NecrosanFlannel: the netboot method i posted seems to be working08:13
Necrosanwe shall see ;)08:13
_CidJoe_: uh ..how old ....PCI-E is not THAT old ...I tend to use old MB's for linux boxes - and with my definition of old ... we still talking AGP08:14
lianimatorEOG 2.24.1 takes 10 seconds to load... anyone also having this?08:14
CAiRO__2: well, i dont know if ubuntu is configure to gateway network traffic by default08:14
_CidJoe_:  seriously, before you buy - it seems worthwhile to put a phillips #3 to the test ;-)08:14
_2CAiRO_ it's not the gateway.   if it were it would affect all boxen08:14
_CidJoe_: you need to open it anyway to install said card .... whats the harm? ;-)08:14
Joe__Cid: Well... I built it before I moved here, which means at least 3 years ago, and I didn't have much to spend... so :P08:14
_CidJoe_: seriously doubt it has PCI-E then08:14
Joe__Cid having to open it up, find out, put back together, turn on, research cards, buy card...08:15
* _2 warns that "default" isn't in his vocabulary08:15
CAiRO__2: ah, ok, can you ping external servers by their ips from your lan box?08:15
Fiberchunkswhy oh why does network manager suck so much?08:15
Joe__Cid yes, I'm just trying to be lazy... I know the cards it currently has is a GeForce 6200 and a Quadro NVS280 PCI08:15
_2CAiRO_ yessir08:15
poogerwow...thats a fair few users ><08:15
_CidJoe_: "put back together" seems like an optional step ;-)    but even then, faster than buying blindly ..open box ... put box back together ..take card back to store ...do more research, order old card online ;-)08:16
CAiRO__2: hmm, and does the dsn check work from other boxes in your lan?08:16
_2CAiRO_ yessir08:16
_2with the exact same /etc/resolv.conf i might add08:16
_CidJoe_: good question though ...can we see what kind of BUS we got going ... humm..worth a try08:17
CAiRO__2: hmm, thats strange.. maybe your have a difference in the routing configuration or maybe youve set up some iptables rules on the problematic box?08:17
poogerI was wondering if anyone might know why my ubuntu has an odd quirk. I have music on an internal harddrive. Audacious wont play it until I manually open the harddrive from nautillus. It seems kind of like a permissions thing?08:17
_2i'm not sure why the wlan and eth are showing up in "ifocnfig" on that box though. only br0 should be showing...08:17
_2CAiRO_ i hadn't thought of iptables, but i'll check08:18

zmanningwhat exactly is Create a USB Startup Disk?08:19
Ahadielalbech, sounds like more of a #virtualbox question08:19
CAiRO__2: even though i would think those other interfaces dont do any harm if you can ping external servers by their ips08:19
albechAhadiel: you are probably right, but i was just trying here ;)08:19
_2CAiRO_ ummm,  yeah i could...    i'll probably lose sshd that way, but i have physical access too08:19
_CidJoe_: I dont know, and I got no pci-e here ..so not sure what to look for .... sorry ...I would imagine there would be SOMETHING in dmesg or so08:20
CAiRO__2: ah, ok, than don't08:20
_CidJoe_:  oh ...err..I think I do have pci-express .....  try   dmesg | grep pci see what you get08:21
CAiRO__2: you could maybe try to find out if you can reach other dns servers from your problematic box08:21
_2CAiRO_ heh too late.   and killing both interfaces errored with/  run-parts: /etc/network/if-down.d/resolvconf exited with return code 108:21
_2maybbe i need to remove some /etc/network/if*/crap08:21
CAiRO__2: well, i would try to find out why the connection to the dsn server cannot be made.. there has to be a reason for that08:23
_2CAiRO_ yes, give me a minute to reset the box after changing some scripts.   i'll let you know how it goes.08:25
CAiRO__2: ok, good luck08:26
rorotMy BIOS loading Was VERY SLOW, why ?08:26
Joe__Cid: Ok... it is older than I thought... AGP card08:27
neil_dother than /etc/passwd /etc/shadow /etc/group what files does getpwnam() require ?08:27
Starnestommyneil_d: maybe /etc/nsswitch.conf08:28
* _Cid is resisting the *I told you so* 08:28
unopneil_d, require??  those should cover it08:29
unopneil_d, but /etc/g{shadow,passwd} might be used too08:29
_CidJoe_: mind you - you can get some pretty nifty AGP cards for a pretty good price - what kind of graphic needs you got? ...I dont game much (anymore)  but I ran wow (under wine) full raid settings with a nvidia AGP under linux08:29
Joe__CId 4 monitors08:30

p4rsewhats the difference between inetd mode and standalone?08:42

blip-hi all, i'm running ubuntu 8.04.  Yesterday I installed the new kernel 2.6.24.23-generic and when asked to replace menu.lst i let it create one (after backing up my own).   For some reason with the new autogenerated menu.lst I'm unable to boot any of the installed kernels including the new one .23... i'm getting an Error 15 File Not found message.  any ideas what's causing this ?   I can't boot any kernel other than the one i'm using now08:53

* _Cid wonders if he is about to be channel kicked for suggesting using root ...08:53
Leoyeah, and i give it the administrator password08:53
_CidLeo:  for sudo, you should use your own password08:53
_CidLeo:  when you as a regular user need to perform actions reserved for super users ...it will prompt you for the passwd08:54
p4rse_Cid: how do i make it more secure? basically what i need is that each user has ftp access to ~/08:54
Leoi am the administrator.no other guess session08:54
_CidLeo:  shrug.... you can make yourself root then if you like .... <insert standard disclaimer>      'sudo su'08:55
Leook08:55
Starnestommy_Cid: sudo -i is safer08:55
Gianpon_Cid: Bluefish is not a very coprehensive editor? I agree with you that a program that can do great thing can do well the little ones also, but I'm not really using html...08:55

_CidStarnestommy:  never did that ...whats thedifference?08:55
p4rse_Cid: sandbox ftp access?08:56
_Cidp4rse:  openssh come with some great stuff, including secure file transfer - that way no one can sniff your mates username/password08:56
_Cidp4rse:  they would need a secure client..like ... err..WinSCP ...or something like that (if they are on windows)08:56

p4rse_Cid: ok. is openssh file transfer easy to set up?08:57
_Cidp4rse:  openssh is easy to set up, yeah  'apt-get install openssh-server'08:58
hateballp4rse: apt-get install ssh08:58
_Cidp4rse: I think it will ask you some questions, and help you generate a key08:58

Gianponin addition to it I'd like a software with an easy to use GUI for tables. Surely i can edit it manually, but it will require a lot of time and a nice coding is not so important in my case08:58

_CidArtanis00: lacks lot of stuff, not really a solution - just a hack :P09:22
Artanis00I know09:22
_CidArtanis00: how are plyalists stored? ..could you parse it ? ;-)09:23
_CidArtanis00: I mean..is it just a bunch of text? :)09:23
Artanis00_Cid: I think it's in rhyhtmbox's DB until you export.09:23
Artanis00then it becomes a .pls file09:24
_CidArtanis00: which could be parsed...and parse to rsync? ;-)09:24
Artanis00probably09:24
Gianpon_Cid: Yes, I had a glimpse on it, but everything seems too professional and heavy for my poor old laptop, so i continued my search of some online tools09:24
_CidGianpon:  oki :-)09:24
Artanis00_Cid: just need a way to automate playlist export, then09:24
_CidArtanis00: is there a CLI interface to rhytmbox?09:25

SlimeyPetebatcoder-7: in fact you can turn your ubuntu into xubuntu by just install the xubuntu-desktop package from synaptic09:39
SlimeyPetethat will allow you to select XFCE (or GNOME, of course) from the login menu09:39
vince38less gnome, more xfce09:39

oCean_Cedara: the system sees that the ntfs partition was NOT cleanly shutdown (or unmounted)11:10

oCean_Cedara: yeah, okay. We used a sample mount directory. It just says "/mnt/hd10, that directory does not exist"11:12
oCean_Cedara: so you have to use an existing directory or create the /mnt/hd10 (command: sudo mkdir /mnt/hd10)11:12

KatangawiseJoe_, I know.. I can open the archive but yakuake, to install the skin, must get tar.gz archive.. Strange a little for me..11:24

Joe_actionparsnip it all worked, except glx wouldn't load, I noticed that all of the symlinks under /usr/lib were pointing to the old 169.12 versions (from Hardy, guess the upgrade didn't work fully), so I backed up /usr and went to work manually re-linking then to the correct version (96.43.09)... of course that didn't work, so I put the backup back over it... and now it's just completely screwed11:25

Joe_actionparsnip I try to remove the ones it shows, but says not installed11:48
JimmyDeekolpur: I use mythtv11:48
ikoniaaugustowebd: the ubuntu documentation seems to suggest auth_digest is already installed/built into apache already, so I'm looking to confirm that11:48
ActionParsnipJoe_: dpkg -l shows all installed packages11:48
ActionParsnipJoe_: try: sudo apt-get-f install11:48
Joe_actionparsni but apt-get --purge remove .... says it's not installed11:49
ActionParsnipJoe_: im hoping -f (fix) will fix it11:49
ubuntu-U-s-rikonia: you are my last hope. i`m in a job and can`t work ;(11:50
Joe_actionparsnip says 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed...11:50
augustowebdikonia: ok, I will look for that...11:50
ikoniaubuntu-U-s-r: you shouldn't be using this sort of thing for your job, you should be using a proper install11:50
Numlock4045i need a good video converter for ubuntu.. any ideas?11:50
ikoniaubuntu-U-s-r: I'm looking at your menu.lst now and how grub works with wubi11:50
ActionParsnipJoe_: ok try installing something new11:50

ActionParsnipNumlock4045: mencoder and ffmpeg11:51
Numlock4045thanks11:51
ActionParsnipJoe_: yeah, anything11:51
syntax\has anyone here experience this: attached thumbnails on ubuntu forums doesnt appear?11:51
JimmyDeeubuntu-U-s-r: anything but a full up install is not suitable for production use11:51
ikoniasyntax\: join #ubuntuforums11:51
ActionParsnipJoe_: sudo apt-get install pidgin11:51
=== drunky is now known as DRNK-E
ikoniaubuntu-U-s-r: can I see /ubuntu/disks/boot/grub/menu.lst11:52
Joe_actionparsnip seems it can't connect to download packages... odd11:52
ikoniaubuntu-U-s-r: or is that what I'm looking at already11:52
ActionParsnipJoe_: ahhh im guessing you used network manager for network conf11:52
Joe_actionparsnip yeah, the default one11:53
ActionParsnipikonia: if a user uses a gui app to configure networking, will the settings transfer to root console so they can connect?11:53
Noah1989hi11:53
ikoniaActionParsnip: what do you mean by transfer ?11:53
henriquelmBom dia pessoal11:53
Joe_actionparsnip it should, I've used apt-get from console before11:53
ikoniaActionParsnip: the console is just an interaction with the machines current state, so if the gui has configured the network, then yes, it should be the same in the console11:54
Noah1989I need to install ubuntu on a machine without internet connection.11:54
Titan8990ActionParsnip: network-manager-gnome will write the network configs to the correct config files11:54
ikoniaNoah1989: use a cd - thats fine11:54
Noah1989ikonia: but i need additional packages11:54
ActionParsnipikonia: but the gui never gets loaded in this case, will the settings still work11:54
ikoniaNoah1989: http://www.ubuntu.com11:54
ubuntu-U-s-rJimmyDee: my fault, no more such things for future11:54
ikoniaNoah1989: then you'll need to download them on another machine, or try to get the ubuntu dvd11:54
augustowebdhenriquelm: bom dia.11:54
ikoniaActionParsnip: I don't see why not11:54
Joe_ok... this is bad...11:54
ikoniaActionParsnip: but as it's not loading - it's unknown11:54
Titan8990Can anyone recommend a C/C++ IDE that uses gtk?11:54
henriquelmSorry... forgot that this is a internetional channel11:55
ActionParsnipTitan8990: just checking, i dont use silly gui apps so my config works :)11:55
JimmyDeeubuntu-U-s-r: you should remove that virtual thinger, resize your ntfs partition and dual boot full on install11:55
Titan8990ActionParsnip: I dont use them either11:55
ActionParsnipJoe_: can you ping websites?11:55
Noah1989ikonia: i need some language-specific stuff (german spellcheck for oo.org) - is that in the DVD?11:55
Joe_actionparsnip I'm assuming it's because I was in the console from the recovery mode, so I rebooted into the normal one with the intention of dropping to console once X failed...11:55
ubuntu-U-s-rJimmyDee: i exacly try resize day before update my disk11:55
Titan8990ActionParsnip: and i found that in gentoo network-manager-gnome actually writes network config to the wrong config file11:55
JimmyDeeJoe_: ping www.yahoo.com11:55
Joe_actionparsnip but I just have a black screen, there's nothing there and I can't switch to tty111:55
Titan8990ActionParsnip: so it is a legit question11:55
ikoniaNoah1989: don't know, you'll have to look, but you can manually download from the interent and put it on a CD using aptoncd11:55
JimmyDeeJoe_: then ping 4.2.2.211:55
ikonia!aptoncd > Noah198911:55

ActionParsnipTitan8990: haha awesome11:55

ubottuhenriquelm: LDAP is the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol. For more information and installation instructions, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/OpenLDAPServer11:56

Noah1989ikonia: ah, that's what i was looking for11:56
JimmyDeeJoe_: no command prompt in your black screen?11:56
Numlock4045thanks for the help guys11:56
RizRhello guys. dont know if this is relevant here or not. but I'm wondering what's the difference between nvidia propritary and opensource driver (user experience and performance wise)?11:57

cmv583ikonia:  not sure what you mean?11:59
