burkmatDecepticon, Full path didn't work either... This is driving me crazy. Cron should run stuff as the user which I'm "crontabbing" from, right?00:00
ScuniziItaku: or del *.*00:00
Itakuwhats the windows equivilant of cd?00:00
ScuniziItaku: cd00:00
ActionParsnipItaku: same command00:00
ActionParsnipItaku: in windows though you can use cd.. instead of cd ..00:00
QaDeSoooh, a quiz :oD00:00
ScuniziItaku: where's the better place for windows reference info... ##windows00:01
Decepticonburkmat: yeah, so makre sure youre not editing the /etc/crontab . but rather some file where you've added that in, and then did the command crontab /path/to/your/crontab.file. you can check with crontab -l00:01

QaDeSmahlzeit, chack-100:01

QaDeSchack-1: was ist das für ein sinnloses gebrabbel?00:02
Decepticonburkmat: not famliar. afaik when you specify your file, as your own user with crontab /path/to/crontab/file/of/your/own... you are saying i am decepticon and that my own personal crontab is there that you should run, cron daemon00:02

Decepticonkoshar1: any help on this please?00:03
jribozatomic: don't know.  Your other option is dd which does a "dumb" copy bit for bit00:03
burkmatDecepticon, yeah, but just adding stuff to the crontab without modifying /etc/crontab on a new ubuntu install should run my crontab stuff, right? gah... maybe i'll just use sleep, at this rate I won't be asleep by the time the alarm clock goes off. :P00:03

xinxanHi, I wonder if someone could help me with VirtualBox? I've installed it then installed Windows XP successfully as a guest OS. At a certain point in the installation, XP asks me to set a password, so I did. Then when the install was done it started windows and asked me for the password, but won't accept it.00:04
xinxanI know it's the right password and I tried a fresh install just in case, now I don't know what to do.00:04
ozatomicdoes dd backup the mbr aswell?00:04
ikoniaxinxan: thats a windows issue, join ##windows or #vbox00:04
ActionParsnipyoyit2: if you dont mind losing data you can simply unmount the partition then run: sudo mk2fs.vfat /dev/<partition name>00:04
ikoniaozatomic: yes00:04
xinxanOh, there's a channel for vbox? Thanks ikonia.00:05

mib_nbtqz7bphello everyone.  is it best practice to upgrade every time a new regular upgrade comes out (like Ibex)?  or wait for the next lts release?  I am on Ubuntu EEE, based on 8.04 lts00:40
BunnyOk, have done a completely fresh install of Ubuntu, reset the router and modem, then the PC. Any idea what to do now?00:40
watwhats lts?00:40
BodsdaHarnagel, i dont think so, you need to boot an OS to fix the upgrade00:40
ActionParsniphyperspace: about 20% way down00:40
nickrud_wat, long term support00:40
Hutchnickrud_: so im guessing you still got mouse lag if you went back to windows00:40
watwait for the lts imo00:40
ActionParsnipmib_nbtqz7bp: if it aint broke, dont fix it00:40
IkanOther than 8.04lol, can anyone else help me with installing 8.10?00:40
marabout_gogereaver:  ctlr alt f1 gives me same desktop weirdness clt alt f7 gives me a black screen...00:40
HarnagelI have a hardy heron cd.00:40
Bodsdamib_nbtqz7bp, Your choice, lts is obviously more reliable00:41
BodsdaHarnagel, that will do fine00:41
gogereavermarabout_ odd that should sent you to text00:41
noodlesgcmib_nbtqz7bp i usually boot off a disc of the latest one, and make sure everything works forst00:41
nickrud_Hutch, no, I had no mouse lag in windows (once I used a wired mouse, that is, I occasionally had wireless mouse lag)00:41
ActionParsnipIkan: same process as installing 8.0400:41
HarnagelHow will I repair the dependency issues?00:41
ActionParsnipIkan: boot cd and install00:41
gogereavermarabout_ defently sounds likea flaky video driver00:41
ActionParsnipIkan: be sure to check the cd for defects00:41
Hutchnickrud~: i mean in linux via wine00:41
mib_nbtqz7bpthanks, wat, action, bod. so let's say I want to upgrade to the next lts release, what is best way to keep all customizations and settings when I upgrade?00:42
IkanThe thing is that I'm trying to dualboot and it doesn't give me the option to install on a specific partition00:42
nickrud_Hutch, yeah, performance wasn't where I wanted it00:42
watmib_nbtqz7bp im not the one to ask about that O_O00:42
Ikanand when I elect to install "manually" it shows all my hard-drive being taken up00:42
mib_nbtqz7bpno prob, thanks wat00:42
ActionParsnipmib_nbtqz7bp: when you upgrade you only upgrade the apps, settings will stand00:42
mdg2Is there a Ubuntu CLI chat forum?00:42
IkanI can show you pictures if you'd like?00:42
watikan on 8.04 for me there is a slider its awesome00:42
hyperspaceActionParsnip: i seem to be missing /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf00:42
ActionParsniphyperspace: you make it00:42
IkanThere's supposedly a slider on 8.10 also00:43
BodsdaHarnagel, you will need to restart the upgrade,  boot the live cd, mount the partially upgraded ppartition, use chroot to change root directory to that of the dodgy upgrade (effectively running ibex now) then run   sudo update-manager --dist-upgrade00:43
watyeah idk why00:43
marabout_gogereaver:  wow nothing brings me back. guess I need to power down to get back00:43
gogereavermdg2 current nivida linux drivers do not support sli modes00:43

watikan what speed did you burn at00:43
HarnagelBodsda: Thank you. :)00:43
mib_nbtqz7bpaction, I've seen people talk about keeping their home directory on another partition.  Isn't this so that settings will remain after upgrade?  Or is there another reason users do this?00:43

mdg2powertool08: It seems its been down all day00:44
gogereavermib_nbtqz7bp thats the point00:44
nickrud_Hutch, increase/decrease zoom level, or hold down middle button and drag mouse00:44

mib_nbtqz7bpAh, I think you just answered the question. thanks.00:44

KamilionMy Problem: Samba 3.2.3 on 8.10, trying to connect to a share from XPsp3, Mapping drive works with bare login ( kamilion/password ), network neighborhood does not (replaces with CORE\kamilion). Is there a workaround I can be pointed at for this other than having to map drive letters every time? Perhaps a config setting for samba to accept MACHINE\user ?01:34
jribmdg2: I think Bunny_ typed "vi etc/network/interfaces" instead of "vi /etc/network/interfaces"01:34
Hutchgogereaver: how do i go about doing that. nah i did flash after firefox01:34

TeamColtra[TFDA few days ago, my audio just stopped working on my machine (running 8.10) it says can't play due to unknown reasons... I googled it and nothing seemed to be very helpful. I am sure its not my audio card, because it has been working for a while... and honestly its pretty generic audio card. What type of trouble shooting can I do (I have lost audio in Music and DVD playback)01:36
maynothugg I guess I'll use windows :C01:36

gogereaverHutch shure01:46
nickrudrandy_, if you compiled against the first, wrong kernel source you'll need to get the right headers/source and recompile the driver01:47
Bunny_mdg2: Did you see where I was saying it gave me "misplaced option" on the network restart command?01:47
gogereaverHutch next to firefox and ie thats number 3 in poplure01:47

klothoso I'm trying to upgrade to 7.04 and I keep getting http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/edgy/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz: 404 Not Found [IP: 80]03:18
klothoso it appears I need to change my repository URL but I don't see where I can do it and don't know what to change it to03:18
ericjungwhat's the best way to install ubuntu and Vista dual-boot without wubi?03:18
mdg2Flannel: does apt-cache show package show only for specific repos like 8.04 if thats whats installed?03:18
klothoany pointers?03:18
ubottuEnd-Of-Life is the time when security updates for an Ubuntu release stop. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases03:18
mrocrdw200169: not sure what "headphone related switches" translates to for me.  the following are listed: IEC958, IEC958 Capture, IEC958 Default PCM, Analog Loopback, Digital Input Source03:18
rdw200169mroc: just check all the options in preferences03:18
wakestso I just installed ubuntu on my macbook, but I didn't follow the instructions, and just installed it on a partition made by boot camp, with out first deleting /dev/sda3 and /dev/sda4 , is there anyway to fix the problem with out re installing?03:19
klothonot sure if this one got thru:  I'm trying to upgrade to 7.04 and I keep getting http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/edgy/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz: 404 Not Found [IP: 80]03:19
Flannelmdg2: It'll show whatever you currently have in your apt-cache03:19
rdw200169mroc: then, under the switches tab, there might be a headphones check-box03:19
Jack_Sparrowklotho, I think it is.. sudo do-release upgrade03:19
Flannelklotho: you're upgrading *to* 7.04 from 6.10?03:19
ericjungi want to install ubuntu and vista together dual-boot, but i don't want to use WUBI because i want to be able to hibernate Ubuntu. What's the best way?03:19
klothoFlannel: yes03:19
rdw200169ericjung: well, first you've got to shrink the vista partition03:20
rdw200169ericjung: to make some space to install ubuntu03:20
mdg2Flannel: can apt-cache search querry specifically 8.04 repos?03:20
Flannelklotho: oh right.  I could've figured that out on my own.  You need to change your repos to http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ then follow the upgrade instructions here:03:20
ericjungrdw200169: already done03:20
Flannel!upgrade | klotho03:20
ubottuklotho: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes03:20
klothoFlannel: how do I change the repos?03:20
Flannelklotho: edit your sources.list03:20
Flannelmdg2: You may be interested in packages.ubuntu.com03:20
klothoFlannel: cool, where is that?03:20
rdw200169ericjung: then just install normally, i believe grub will boot vista normally via the chainloader03:20
Flannelklotho: /etc/apt/sources.list03:20
mdg2Flannel: Thanks!  going there now.03:21
rdw200169ericjung: though i don't know for sure because I haven't done it personally03:21
klothoFlannel: grrreat!03:21
ericjungrdw200169: install vista or ubuntu first?03:21
Meshezabeelwhy when setting a static ip in ubuntu, the dhcp always comes back on a reboot?03:21
rdw200169ericjung: the ubuntu installer should find the empty space, and by default install there03:21
rdw200169ericjung: vista first03:21
mrocrdw200169: well, the new things i check show up, but nothing called headphones still.  checked them all off, all volume is up, doesn't appear to give me headphones sound.03:21
rdw200169ericjung: otherwise you end up with this:03:21
rdw200169!grub | ericjung03:21
ubottuericjung: GRUB is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - GRUB how-tos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto03:21
rdw200169mroc: i don't know then... :(03:21
ericjung!ubuntu | ubottu03:22
ubottuericjung: Ubuntu is a complete Linux-based operating system, freely available with both community and professional support. It is developed by a large community and we invite you to participate too! - Also see http://www.ubuntu.com03:22
mrocrdw200169: me neither.  thanks for your efforts though, i appreciate it.03:22
rdw200169if you install vista second, it will rewrite grub03:22
Hikeractivehow i use the sleep command in sessions to delay mail-notification from starting immediately? Is it just appname sleep x?03:23
klothoFlannel:  just add a deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/  line at the top of the file?03:23
mdg2Bunny_: Anything good happening?03:23
Flannelklotho: No, change all of the http://cc.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ lines to http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/03:23
WetWired_ALUGAnyone know how to keep your display from turning off? It's not going to screensaver, it's like it's going to sleep. Highly annoying. Nothing I've tried has helped.03:24
Bunny_mdg2: I just tried sudo lshw -c network...It shows my ethernet card there, then pan0. The ethernet card network says DISABLED, pan0 does not03:24
rdw200169Meshezabeel: is dhcp set in your /etc/network/interfaces file?03:24
klothoFlannel: cool, thanks03:24
rich_WetWired_ALUG, add acpi=no to your grub config03:24
Bunny_mdg2: Logical name for the ethernet says eth003:24
WetWired_ALUGgrub config? really? I didn't figure it'd be in there03:25
mdg2Bunny_: What kind of computer is this?03:25
Bunny_mdg2: Desktop03:25
mdg2Bunny_: What brand etc.03:25
rdw200169Meshezabeel: it's either there, or something to do with NetworkManager03:25
Bunny_mdg2: No brand, I made it myself03:25
wakestwould anyone be willing to help me for a sec with an installation issue on a macbook?03:25
bullgard4What are chroots? As in https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel-announce/2006-September/000195.html. (Up to now I only know a chroot command.)03:25
mdg2Bunny_: WOW :)03:25
Bunny_mdg2: I'm not stupid, I just have no idea how Linux operates :P03:26
Meshezabeelrdw200169: I believe so, the machines are at work though, so not sure, but in networkmanager, we take out the dhcp setting, and replace it with a manual setting, and once the machines are rebooted, the dhcp comes back03:26
rdw200169Bunny_: did you manufacture the boards too? (hah, joke, kidding)03:26
rdw200169Meshezabeel: then it's likely in /etc/network/interfaces03:26
Hikeractivehow i use the sleep command in sessions to delay mail-notification from starting immediately? Is it just appname sleep x?03:26
Bunny_mdg2: Though I know Windows inside and out lol03:26
mdg2Bunny_: In a terminal type "dmesg"03:26
mdg2Bunny_: may need you for windows at work :)03:26
rdw200169Meshezabeel: the /etc/init.d/network script takes that configuration file for setting up the network; that's where you put static settings, read the man page: man interfaces03:27
borkALSA won't stop when shutting down -- any ideas why this is?03:27
Bunny_mdg2: dmesg wrote two tons of stuff in my terminal03:27
klothoflannel: how about the lines that say security.ubuntu.com?03:27
mdg2Bunny_: shift + page up to scroll back up - looking for network card stuff03:27
Flannelklotho: Those go to old-releases as well03:27
klothobtw, this file doesn't have cc.whatever only archive.whatever03:27
Bunny_mdg2: Specific text?03:28
Flannelklotho: that's fine. "cc." can be missing03:28
klothorequiring users to edit files to upgrade is kinda dum03:28
mdg2Bunny_: You are looking for pan0 and eth003:28
klothowhy move things?03:28
klothoFlannel: thanks a bunch!03:29
Flannelklotho: Er... Had you upgraded while Edgy was suported, you wouldn't have to.03:29
rdw200169wakest: i read your problem earlier, but i've got nothing03:29
Flannelklotho: As is, Edgy has been unsupported for almosta year now.03:29
BllasaeHow do you transfer profiles from Windows to Ubuntu?03:29
mdg2Bunny_: What kind of network card did you put in this computer?03:29
klothoFlannel: thing is, you can't assume users will upgrade, and those who don't are probably less linux savvy,so there's no reason to make things more difficult03:30
runner23got a weird issue I've never had before on ubuntu.... total OS lockup while opening a file03:30
Bunny_mdg2: SiS900 on-board03:30
Flannelklotho: If you use update-manager, you'd get notifications about Feisty being released, and a suggestion to upgrade (for a year about, before edgy went EOL)03:30
klothoFlannel: I have no argument with you at all. I'm just saying it doesn't make sense to change things so that they break if you don't have to03:31
Flannelklotho: And also, Edgy's repos stayed online for around 4 months after it was EOL (in the same place).  In the future, you may wish to stick with the LTS releases, which you only need to upgrade once every few years.03:31
mdg2Bunny_: Finding anything in dmesg?03:31
Flannelklotho: Not broken.  But the errors from getting packages is a good way to indicate to people that they need to figure out "whats wrong" instead of them blindly running insecure versions03:32
mdg2Bunny_: You got another network card you can throw in there?03:32
Bunny_mdg2 nope03:32
BllasaeHow do you transfer profiles from Windows to Ubuntu?03:32
mdg2Bunny_: Will this computer be dual booting?03:32
Bunny_mdg2 nope03:33
klothoFlannel: my grandmother or girlfriend would never figure it out.03:33
mdg2Bunny_: That makes it easier03:33
runner23Bllasae did you install on same HD? If so Ubuntu asked me on first boot if I want to copy contents of profiles folders03:33
klothoin fact, I looked around online and didn't find anything03:33
klothoso unless someone knows to come here, they seem to be SOL03:34
mdg2Bunny_: BTW, you can type "dmesg | less" and use page up/down03:34
BllasaeI asked me but the folder wasn't there03:34
Flannelklotho: Then they'd never realise they need to upgrade, and never try to upgrade either.  They'd still be running Edgy, which has the ssl random number problem, etc.03:34
mdg2Bunny_: You can also use edit to search for pan003:34
nickrudklotho, can't argue about that; why not add/check brainstorm for a better way to inform people03:34
klothoFlannel: they'd realize they need an upgrade because the system tells you to upgrade and shows that there's a 7.04 upgrade availabe, but then when you try it breaks03:34
Bunny_mdg2: Here's what's strange to me....03:35
runner23You've looked in your home folder?03:35
Flannelklotho: I suggest after you upgrade to 7.04, you upgrade to 7.10 then 8.04.  And stop there.  In a few years, you'll be able to upgrade straight from 8.04 to 10.04 (and you have until 11.04 to do so before the desktop stuffs go out of support)03:35
ld50I have a PC with internet and I would like to share the conection with two PC's, PC-A has gentoo, PC-B has ubunto; both can ping the gateway, but only PC-A has internet, both route -n outputs are the same, any idea?03:35
Bunny_mdg2: When I type lshw -c network, the SiS900 comes up as eth003:35
Flannelklotho: No, For *a year* of the system telling them there's an upgrde it was in the same location it was in, and they wouldn't have had to do anything but click "Upgrade"03:35
llHi, thank you to whoever gave me the pointer to some help pages for Mythbuntu. However I am somewhat of a Ubuntu newbie and I tried to fix my problem before coming here. And the pages are interesting and helpful, but I can't figure out what I need to do. My problem is during the MythTV Setup. I've checked the /etc/mythtv/mythtv mysql.txt file and the problem doesn't seem to be the password. I am unable to get past the "Database Configuration"03:35
ll. I have manuall started mysql. When I start the MythTV Backend Setup it asks if it ok to stop any previously running processes. Could the problem be that mysql is also stopped at that time??03:35
mdg2Bunny_: So pan0 shows an inet addr, but when you querry hardware it shows eth0 right?03:36
klothoFlannel: I'm still getting errors on upgrade with it looking for security.etc. I double checked that file and every line is edited with old-sources. anything else I should check?03:36
Bunny_mdg2: Yes03:36
Flannelll: You may have more luck in #ubuntu-mythtv03:36
llah, thank you Flannel.03:36
Flannelklotho: You need to move security to old-releases too03:36
bullgard4What are chroots? As in https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel-announce/2006-September/000195.html. (Up to now I only know a chroot command.)03:37
mdg2Bunny_: Did you see anything in dmesg about pan0 and eth0?03:37
klothoFlannel: is that another file? I did change those lines in sources.list03:37
Gemmie78I've recently downloaded Banshee Music Player and would like to use that as my default music player03:37
nickrudbullgard4, chroots are the environment you are in when you chroot.03:37
Gemmie78I've selected it as my preferred multimedia application in preferred applications, but when I open an mp3 file, totem still loads03:38
Flannelklotho: Check /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ for files03:38
bullgard4nickrud: Ah! Thank you very much for explaining.03:38
Gemmie78What can I do to correct the issue03:38
Bunny_mdg2: Yes. "pan0: no IPv6 routers present"03:38
mdg2Bunny_: that's normal - mine shows that - I don't use IPv603:38
klothoFlannel: it does have some files in it03:38
roger_right click mp3 file and select properties, then open with add or select banshee03:38
nickrudbullgard4, always a pleasure to see you03:38
Flannelklotho: Check those files for similar things.03:38
Gemmie78Will I need to do this with all mp3 files?03:38
ld50can i configure my network with manually ifconfig/route/resolv.conf or ubuntu has some process that manages this?03:38
mdg2Bunny_: You are looking for "Link up" with pan0 or eth003:39
roger_no, just 103:39
mdg2Bunny_: BTW, if you use "dmesg | less" you can search by typing "/eth0"03:39
usserld50: yea sure you can do it, if u modify interfaces file ubuntu's network manager will just ignore that interface03:39
klothoFlannel: thanks again03:39
mdg2Bunny_: I'm still learning linux03:39
maddashhi. i'm getting a lot weird messages in dmesg|less: "PM: Removing info for No Bus:XXXXX" where XXXXX ranges from "event7", "input0", and "usbdev..."03:39
Gemmie78Thank you roger_03:39
nickrudld50, you can; ubuntu has 2 major methods: /etc/network/interfaces and NetworkManager03:40
maddashwhat exactly is "PM"?03:40
bullgard4nickrud: :-)03:40
roger_did that work for you Gemmie7803:40
ld50nickrud, usser thanks03:40
Bunny_mdg2: eth0: SiS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet at 0xd000, IRQ 5, 00:00:00:00:00:0003:40
[Muel]EliotWere can i get help for installing a program?03:41
nickrud[Muel]Eliot, depends on the program and where you got it03:41
Gemmie78That worked perfectly03:41
Gemmie78You solved this issue in the first go, thanks03:41
YankDownUnder[Muel]Eliot, What do you need to know?03:41
Gemmie78Just too easy for you03:42
[Muel]Eliotdunno how to install it03:42
mdg2Bunny_: So your Sis900 is seen and configure as eth0, but no inet addr there03:42
klothoFlannel: hmm.. now it's giving me some errors like Failed to fetch http://old-sources.canonical.com/ubuntu/dists/edgy-commercial/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz Sub-process gzip returned an error code (1)03:42
Bunny_mdg2: Yup03:42
YankDownUnder[Muel]Eliot, Is is a program in the repos?03:42
saerahi anyone know how to send a fax using an eee pc on ubuntu  8.10 ?03:42
Gemmie78I want to also know 2 more things, Firefox and Opera, what are the browsers that you folks are using?03:42
[Muel]EliotYankDownUnder, dont think so03:42
Flannelklotho: Oh, it's old-releases not old-sources, and I don't think there's any commercial component there, just go ahead and comment (#) that line out03:42
YankDownUnder[Muel]Eliot, Well, what is the program you want to install?03:43
axelhmhello. I'm using ubuntu 8.10 and the gnome desktop. the command ctrl+alt+F(1-6) does nothing while I'm logged into gnome. but it does go to the fullscreen terminal when I am on the gdm login screen. ctrl+alt+backspace doesn't work either.03:43
nickrud[Muel]Eliot, that looks like a sample program, written to use specific chip sets; do you have the ones mentioned on the page?03:43
klothoFlannel: do I have to change everything to releases?03:43
Gemmie78I'm currently running in a fairly weak notebook and want to try and maximise whatever performance I have out of this machine03:43
[Muel]EliotI have no clue, uhm how can i tell?03:43
Flannelklotho: old-sources shouldn't work as far as I know.  it's old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu03:43
Gemmie78Should I stick with firefox, or is it true Opera is more leaner on resources03:43
nickrud[Muel]Eliot, note the dates on the changelog as well. Something like that is probably non-funtional now. and either   lspci or lsusb will show the wireless chip03:43
eseven73 opera is leaner03:43
MK13both browsers have their ups and down03:43
klothoflannel: not canonical.com?03:43
Gemmie78Secondly, do you all stick with evolution as your default email client or do you use thunderbird03:43
YankDownUnder[Muel]Eliot, Er...without me opening a browser, what can you tell me about the program - and have you looked to see if someone's converted it to a DEB for Ubuntu?03:44
axelhmdid someone see my post? :x03:44
mdg2Bunny_: Am reading a post at ubuntuforums.com about Sis90003:44
klothoFlannel: do I edit the commercial sources? they were .canonical.com03:44
BllasaeI found my firefox folder but what do i do with my profiles folder?03:44
YankDownUnder[Muel]Eliot, Er...just looked for a grin...what you'd need to do is to get all the dependencies to compile it on your own matey03:45
Flannelklotho: Just remove them.  comment them out03:45
[Muel]Eliotchrist guys i dont know what im doing lol03:45
[Muel]Elioti got this out of terminal03:45
nickrudGemmie78, I use thunderbird, better imap support03:45
[Muel]Eliotdidnt coppy soryr03:45
FloodBot2[Muel]Eliot: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.03:45
Flannel[Muel]Eliot: Please watch your language.03:45
Gemmie78Finally is there a way to find out your exact hardware stats in ubuntu03:45
MK13windows 7 is taking forever to install :(03:45
FlannelMK13: Please keep this channel ontopic, thanks.03:45
[Muel]Eliot00:1d.7 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB2 EHCI Controller #1 (rev 03)03:45
YankDownUnderWindows 7 is nothing but Vista redone03:45
nickrudGemmie78, try   sudo lspci | less for real details03:45
BllasaeWhy does Firefox say "No programs that contain bookmarks, history or password data could be found"????????????03:46
axelhmmy post got flooded away :x. may I post it again?03:46
BllasaeI copied the folder to the desktop03:46
nickrudGemmie78, erm, sudo lshw | less I mean03:46
Jonatha1Can I get help in here on a certain problem involving my package manager?03:46
MK13i am on topic, it is running in virtual machine one ubuntu ;)03:46
BllasaeHow does Firefox know that there isn't anything in it03:46
Gemmie78Just a basic hardware information check, I've tried the hardware info check, but I just03:46
heirrooki have a nanorc file in /etc/ and it will not work.  For some strange reason, when I open the file nanorc with nano, then the options i have in nanorc apply?03:46
mdg2Bunny_: No solution to that post, but he had pan0 showing as well03:46
Flannelaxelhm: Every 15-25 minutes is a good rate of repeat.03:46
VantraxYankDownUnder, Windows 7's version number is 6.1, vista was 603:46
Gemmie78just type that in terminal?03:46
nickrudJonatha1, possibly, ask away03:46
axelhmFlannel, ok thanks03:46
nickrudGemmie78, yes. Page up/down to scroll03:46
Gemmie78Only need to just doublecheck ram, and spec of cpu03:47
Flannelaxelhm: I'd check launchpad bug reports, we've had a few instances of that not happening.  If you need to get to a TTY from gnome, you can use sudo chvt # (where # is 1-6)03:47
Jonatha1I got this from my terminal when I run apt-get03:47

MakuseruSukottoHi, i recently installed 8.10, and when ever i go to boot up it gets to where it loads the grub and then it says "Error 17" and i cannot input anything after that. What causes this and how can i fix it?03:47
MK13any here use ubuntu on an acer by any chance?03:47
Bunny_mdg2: Guess they'll get around to it in six months? lol03:47
klothoFlannel: do you want to rewrite your sources.list anyway? should I say yes?03:47
Flannelklotho: please pastebin your sources.list (and the contents of the other ones)03:47
[Muel]EliotMK13, yes, my brother has an acer aspire 7720 with ubuntu working fine on it.03:48
Jonatha1what you mean by hardy-proposed?03:48
klothoFlannel: I said yes and it seems happy at the moment03:48
runner23Anyone ever heard of hard lockups on Ubuntu 8.10? Starts with app thats open, then Menus and then mouse will finally quit working after about 60 seconds after logging in.03:48
FlannelJonatha1: You've enabled the -proposed repositories for hardy.  Disable them.  You don't want to have them enabled03:48
klothoFlannel: oops. no it's not03:48
nickrudJonatha1, system->admin->software sources, find proposed, and uncheck it03:48
Jonatha1well how do I disable them?03:48

Gemmie78Another question, is there a way to make your PIDGIN messenger client run off UTC time03:54
eseven73jigpe: sometimes you have to log out for icons to show up03:54
Jonatha1thanks guys03:54
Vantraxjigpe, is there a folder with .deb files in it03:54
Gemmie78Despite selecting the correct time server, my time is incorrect unless I select the UTC checkbox in the settings03:54
Gemmie78doing so, I get the correct time in the top right corner of my screen03:54
mdg2Bunny_: I found a post that might work03:54
Gemmie78however for applications, it still believes the incorrect time, not my local time03:54

MakuseruSukottoHi, i recently installed 8.10, and when ever i go to boot up it gets to where it loads the grub and then it says "Error 17" and i cannot input anything after that. What causes this and how can i fix it?03:56
DoonzHey guys How can i change the repositories from a local one to the main one. the local one is horribly slow03:56
Kristopherdoes the ubuntu live cd have a partition manager (to resize and create partitions) ?03:56
portzKristopher: yes03:56
eseven73jigpe: wait, you're gonna need to do more than extract that tar to get an icon... is there like an 'install.sh' file?03:56
FlannelKristopher: Yes, Gnome Partition Manager (gparted)03:56
jigpeVantrax : no .deb03:56
Kristopherthanks - but i tried the gparted live cd and that wasn't displaying properly, so i couldn't use it. might the ubuntu one work better?03:57
runner23@Vantrax I'm at root shell prompt and it keeps telling me var/log/ isn't a valid directory and trying to change to / is ignored03:57
FlannelKristopher: It may, yes.03:57
borkmy computer's sound works in Windows (so there is no hardware problem, probably), but it's started only making a crackling noise in Ubuntu... any ideas?03:57
mattI may have gotten in over my head. I sorta promised a friend and her mom that I could put their house on craigslist and ebay, which is no big deal. I also mentioned that I'd probably be able to create "360's" of the rooms in their house. I remember seeing something about software that does this in linux. Anyone know what it'd be called?03:57
klothoFlannel: cool, thanks! trying it again03:57
jigpeeseven73 : nope there is no install.sh03:57
eseven73jigpe: usually there's a doc directory you should see, if so, then go into that directory and view the help files03:57
Flannelmatt: hugin is a panorama picture thing03:58

Kristopheris it just an app once ubuntu starts? or do i have to look for it somewhere else?03:58

eseven73jigpe: look for 'doc' 'install' 'readme'03:58

klothothe upgrade tool03:59
Vantraxjigpe, there is probably a setup script or you need to run a make command then03:59

Flannelklotho: (you're actually using nano, but that's ok).  Do this:  sudo apt-get update, do you get any errors?03:59
Vantraxrunner23, in recovery mode or live cd03:59

Adrian2MiL8..a little question ...anyone known how to change the envyng from 173 to 181 nvidia driver ???03:59
runner23@Bllasae because Ubuntu doesn't copy them as they are a different format04:00

Flannelklotho: Alright, then that's set up properly.  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FeistyUpgrades  should be able to get you the rest of the way through the upgrade04:00
runner23@Bllasae export your bookmarks in windows and reimport them in ubuntu04:00

runner23@Bllasae check the extension settings and see if they have a export feature04:02

CITguy-Hermeswith Intrepid, is there a reason why I don't see any applications in the "Add/Remove" application?04:02

Flannel!helpme | ltgg04:02
ubottultgg: Avoid your questions being followed by a trail of "Please, help me", "Can nobody help me?", "I really need this!", and so on. This just contributes to making the channel unreadable. If you are not answered, ask again later; but see also !repeat and !patience04:02
klothoFlannel: do the command line upgrade? but it says that's less reliable04:03
opera!Live CD04:03
ubottuThe Ubuntu Desktop CD is a "LiveCD" which can be run without altering existing files on your harddrive. Especially useful for testing your hardware's compatibility, it also includes an install option.04:03
Vantraxrunner23, try to do a locate on the logs to find the path, i thought /var/logs was right04:03
MK13herme: i dont have that problem with Intrepic04:03
klothoFlannel: there must be a way to get upgrade tool to realize what mirror to use, no?04:03

sektor1952has anyone seen this issue when running make menuconfig or even make oldconfig file drivers/net/arcnet/Kconfig already scanned?04:04
Vantraxltgg, try getting your question on one line and having everything needed in the one request04:04
portzFlannel: Both options (Create folder, document) are grayed out04:04
Flannelklotho: once you've done that (and restarted to make sure you're on the most recent kernel), go back to your sources.list, change the edgy to feisty (all three) then do: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade.  Then you'll be upgrading to Feisty.04:04
Vantraxltgg, the forums are also very effective for getting help04:04
klothoFlannel: this has me worried: Please note - this method is less reliable. If you use this method, you MUST be prepared to fix problems manually, such as packages being unexpectedly removed, apt crashing unexpectedly, etc. Using Update Manager (see above) is likely to be much less problematic.04:04

dal_workhi all, a friend of mine recently installed ubuntu 8.10 via the wubi installer, and has since ran out of disk space on the root partition leading to all kinds of nastiness. He wants to shift some free space from other partitions on that drive to the ubuntu root partition and my first thought was to fire up a live cd and use gparted to resize his partitions but wubi appears to have done something strange and I can't see the ubuntu partition04:08
dal_workto resize, I can only see his two ntfs partitions and what appears to be a vender recovery partition (it's a laptop)...anyone have any ideas on how to transfer some free space from his windows partition to the ubuntu space (whether it is a partition or not I dont' really know at this stage)?04:08
klothoFlannel: ok, thanks. I'm trying it. but why do you think upgrade tool is broken?04:08
ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo04:08
Cpudan80then you click the little force quit button and click the window to kill04:08
Flannelklotho: Because it wasn't updates to handle the old-releases stuff04:08

dal_Vantrax, sorry, link died for a second there.

rdw200169Barridus: I believe ALSA can redirect the beep04:25
BllasaeWhy can't this be like windows04:25
BllasaeWithout the commands and crap04:25
rdw200169Bllasae: go use Mac OS then, it's mostly open source, and doesn't require a terminal04:26
klothoor like mac with everything hidden?04:26
BllasaeI hate Macs04:26
FlannelBllasae: Because Linux isn't Windows.  You can navigate directories and modify files graphically though.04:26
tritiumBllasae: I'd hate to lose all that flexibility and power04:26
BllasaeIf anything, I'd stick with Windows04:26
rdw200169Bllasae: then go do that!04:26
Barridusrdw200169, how is that accomplished?  i don't see anything obvious in the sounds control panel, and google searches have been lacking04:26
Bllasaetritium: So far, I haven't experienced anything good, really, with Ubuntu04:26
bullgard4rdw200169: I do not believe you. I can download now source code using the 'sudo apt-get source <name_of_DEB_package>' command.04:27
klothoI thought ubuntu was supposed to be getting more maclike in terms of not requiring command line or config file editing04:27
fdsfsother way around04:27
rdw200169bullgard4: then the source lines are in your sources.list file04:27
tritiumBllasae: I have.  Far more, in fact, than I ever could on Windows.04:27
miranda_psiBllasae: you could also go through nautilus as well - just make it harder for you to find the files im looking for04:27

BarridusOS arguments make children sad to be alive04:28
klothofdsfs: mac is getting more linux-like and will require command line and config file editing?04:28
bullgard4rdw200169: I like to understand better the programs which I am using.04:28
BllasaeI just caused a temporal rift in my toolbar when I completely removed Firefox04:28
rdw200169bullgard4: well, the source code system is rather simple, in terms of how you get it, in your sources.list file (/etc/apt) there are both deb lines and deb-src lines04:29
rdw200169bullgard4: if there are uncommented lines for deb-src, then you can download the source code from the applicably uncommented repositories04:29
rdw200169bullgard4: apt update downloades the packages.gz files for ea. repo, and thus it knows where to download stuff from, which is directly related to sources.list04:30
Bllasaemiranda_psi: Parentlock doesn't exist04:30
rdw200169bullgard4: if you comment the lines for deb-src and perform a apt-get update, you won't be able to download source code anymore04:31

klothowhat's an evolution data server, and do I need it?04:31
miranda_psiBllasae: is this from looking in nautilus? if so make sure you have show hidden files selected04:31
bullgard4rdw200169: I think that not only the file /etc/apt/sources.list is relevant but files in the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ directory reflect in the System > Administration > Software Sources > Ubuntu Software also.04:32

miranda_psiBllasae: the file system browser (similar to windows explorer)04:32

klothoalso, I see that I have HP printing services running, which I don't need. how do I turn that off?04:32
Barridusrdw200169, so if i switch from alsa to pulse audio, will it add an option box to the sound panel for the system beep?04:32
rdw200169Barridus: not likely, pulse audio runs on top of alsa04:33
BllasaeMaybe this would be easier if you compared things to windows equivalents04:33
FlannelBllasae: Nautilus === Windows Explorer04:33
rdw200169Barridus: alsa is still in charge, pulse audio just provides mixing so 2 applications can output sound at the same time, among other things04:33
miranda_psiBllasae: i'll keep that in mind....04:33
wolteri have a bluetooth dongle conected to my computer, but i the bluetooth device setup doesn't detect it, what can i do?04:33
tritiumBllasae: not all of us use Windows, so wouldn't know what to compare things to.04:33
nathan42100hey all. Can anyone tell me how to install the windows 7 Beta without disturbing Grub (and having it show up) or how to easily restore grub after the install?04:33
Flannel!grub | nathan42100, first link04:33
Barridusrdw200169, ok i'm with you so far04:33
ubottunathan42100, first link: GRUB is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - GRUB how-tos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto04:33
Bllasaetritium: What did you use before Ubuntu?04:34
tritiumBllasae: further, linux has many things for which there is no Windows equivalent04:34
wolternathan42100, i'm afraid that is impossible. there is though, a grub installer for windows, called wingrub04:34
tritiumBllasae: Debian04:34
Flannelnathan42100: It's entirely likely that you can't do the former.  Windows tends to assume its the only OS in the world04:34
BllasaeSo this is easy for you04:34
BllasaeAnd Windows is easy for me04:34
rdw200169Barridus: this is about as far as I can go with you, before it gets *really* complicated, i would recommend reading up on ALSA and pulseaudio04:34
IndyGunFreakwolter: thats pretty unecessary, reinstalling grub is about a 4-6sec job.04:34
bullgard4rdw200169: What do you mean by 'repo'? reproduction, repository, or what?04:34
wolterIndyGunFreak, ah.04:34
BllasaeI FIXED IT04:34

miranda_psiBllasae: good job :)04:35
nathan42100anyone had luck with the supergrub restore?04:35

runner23@ Bllasae just remember where you put it04:37

Flannelmiranda_psi: Especially not here.04:40
bullgard4rdw200169: Let me proceed step by step. I would like now to know what would change if I asserted the  System > Administration > Software Sources > Ubuntu Software > Downloadable from the Internet > Source code button. Your answer " the ability to download the source code" above certainly is not correct. I told you that I am able to download source code even now when this button is unchecked.04:40

tboydstonjessid: I was just told to use page up and page down and that works fine for me04:45
bullgard4rdw200169: What do you mean by "and no more source code"? This is an ambiguous statement. What do you mean precisely with it? That I will no longer be able to download source code packages through the apt-get source mechanism? Or that there will exist no longer any source code in the world? Or what?04:45

WetWired_ALUGOk, nautilus recognises .jpg but not .JPG, how can I change it so it'll do both?04:48
zirodayWetWired_ALUG: nautilus doesn't find the program type from the filename, it works it out by actually looking at the file04:48
roger_uber_noober, openoffice is the equivalent of ms office04:48

djambsdhi, where is rc.conf in ubuntu to change startup04:49
mankashanybody knows about hostap and hostapd modules04:49

uber_nooberroger I know, but I'm trying to install it on someone else's system who insists on having it04:49
Kyoaku_Tatsu1i really just need to know why my computer is saying there is an error when i try to open something i downloaded like Zune04:49
uber_nooberso far managed to get xp running in virtual mode, but no idea how to get ms office installed04:50
WetWired_ALUGIt usually only happens when I'm uploading files to something like myspace. It won't display any of the files with the uppercase JPG, but once I rename them to lowercase it will. Then I can upload them. Problem is, my camera takes the picutres in uppercase, and it's a real pain always having to rename all of the files.04:50
miranda_psiKyoaku: is Zune a windows program?04:50

greatcaffeineDoes anyone know if it will be possible to upgrade an existing ext3 filesystem to ext4?05:17
kosharilinux_trojan if its a DV camcorder use kino05:18
balrog__greatcaffeine: it should be05:18
tritiumcinco29: use the ubuntu package, not the .bin05:18
kosharigreatcaffeine i doubt it, i beleive you need the 2.6.28 kernel for ext405:18
roger_huh, my ubuntu install was a bin05:18
linux_trojanin Kino I get an error something about /dev/1396 or something05:18
tritiumroger_: it's in the medibuntu repository05:18

hydehow can I use command line to verify one dhcp fixed-address configuration entry is really in effect?05:19
cinco29how do i get  the package?05:19
tritiumcinco29: don't use the .bin.  It's always preferable to have your software under package management.  Get it from the medibuntu repository.05:19
kosharilinux_trojan you may need to change permissions of the 1396 device, theres a lot of how tos around,05:19
balrog__greatcaffeine: you do need the -28 kernel, but i beleive ext4 is just an extension to ext3...05:19

linux_trojanI didnt have a /dev/raw1936, so I created it and I chmod 777 on it but nothing works05:19
kosharilinux_trojan technically giving your firewire device write access is a security risk05:20
ronhalfdanrif I change the samba config from path = /home/ron/rondata to path = /dev/sdc1 will it change my samba share to that entire drive?05:20
kosharilinux_trojan if you didnt have a device i wouls suspect the system is not seing your device05:20

sh1how do i do that06:18
Omoikane_I have two beefs with Ubuntu! My mute button stopped working and no one seems to know why and for some reason my firefox bookmarks keeps messing up how firefox is displayed. I have to go through and remove each bookmark until it works again.06:19
zirodayluig1: erm emergencies are hard to prepare for :), probably how to install/remove apps with apt-get or aptitude06:19
cinco29hey adrian u wanna talk some more. bout anything ill be in ubuntu offtopic06:19
luig1I do that all the time ziroday, I meant like stuck-wothout-X emergencies.06:19
zirodaysh1: you can print screen with the Print Screen button on your keyboard, and then you can upload it to places like imageshack.us06:19
zirodayluig1: you know how to pastebin from the command line?06:19
zirodayluig1: as well as to start X the command is startx06:20
binarymutantziroday: http://paste.ubuntu.com/10471106:20
zirodaybinarymutant: lookin06:20
Adrian2MiL8Jerr > sorry i don't see you question ...what pack06:21
zirodaybinarymutant: there are no errors there, and sudo /etc/init.d/?dm doesn't work06:21
zirodayluig1: you might want to install pastebinit, its a command that pastebins a bit of text06:22
kinja-sheepWhat is differences in simple-ccsm + compizconfig-settings-manager ?06:22
Adrian2MiL8<ziroday>you known how to change envyng configuration for update from 173 to 180 driver ??06:22
zirodaykinja-sheep: simple-ccsm does not have all the options that ccsm does, however its simpler :)06:22
zirodayAdrian2MiL8: that is not advised, see !latest to understand why06:22
zirodayAdrian2MiL8: why do you need the latest nvidia drivers?06:23
kinja-sheepziroday: So I'd prefer the second choice then.  More power to the *nux, eh?06:23
zirodaykinja-sheep: sure06:23
Adrian2MiL8<ziroday> only i want try06:23
pyro2927is there a program that will show a photo frame like windows vista has in its sidebar?06:23
zirodayAdrian2MiL8: upgrading to new graphics drivers can _really_ mess up your system. Upgrading just to try is never a good idea06:23
Adrian2MiL8ziroday > maybe speed up the compiz effects06:23
klothoFlannel: hey! I successfully upgraded to 7.04 but when I try to upgrade to 7.10 I get the same "no valid mirror" error. Any hints?06:24
zirodaypyro2927: take a look at screenlets or gdesklets for GNOME06:24
zirodayAdrian2MiL8: it most probably won't. Its better to wait until the next version of ubuntu with it in06:24
pyro2927ziroday: thanks!06:25
kinja-sheepziroday: Cool.  I'm about to test out the stuffs -- Emerald is a theme -- Can it be used on compiz ?  Or is it same as.. metacity, emerald, compiz? (for compare).06:25
klothoor anyone else with a hint06:25
zirodaypyro2927: I personally recommend screenlets06:25
Adrian2MiL8<ziroday>when i logon into gnome there is for a few secons a horrous black squares until the destop finish to load with the gadgets awn and more06:25
zirodaykinja-sheep: emerald is a window manager that is run with compiz. However it is buggy, unstable and unmaintained. Its not advised to use it06:26
kinja-sheepziroday: Wait... Not advised to use Emerald, but CompizFusion is stable... correct?06:27
parvocan rhythmbox connect to a mpd server?06:27
zirodaykinja-sheep: correct06:27
Adrian2MiL8<ziroday>when i logon into gnome there is for a few seconds a horrous black squares until the desktop finish to load with the gadgets awn and more06:27
Adrian2MiL8<ziroday> i think what maybe is the 173 driver with my nv 8800gt06:28
zirodayAdrian2MiL8: the new drivers are unlikely to fix that. However if you must try them out there is a PPA at https://launchpad.net/~thomas-creutz/+archive06:28
kinja-sheepziroday: Thank you.  This seems very straightforward.  I thought I'd have to do some kind of compiz --replace command?06:29

zirodayGaladx: may we know what it is :)06:32
Adrian2MiL8<ziroday>are you sure ??  why ??06:32
zirodayAdrian2MiL8: because its packages are too out of date. It may work but not easily and will wreck your system06:32
binarymutantklotho: edgy is out of date, end of life06:32
zirodayAdrian2MiL8: the only way is to download the actual drivers from nvidia.com06:32

Galadxi opened up terminal and typed it in, but it says i need to be superuser06:33
ziroday!latest | Adrian2MiL806:33
ubottuAdrian2MiL8: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are: fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports.06:33
kinja-sheepziroday: I'm confused.  This mean I'm running Compiz or CompizFusion now?  I'm gunning for CompizFusion.06:34
zirodayGaladx: try do sudo dpkg --configure-a06:34
zirodaykinja-sheep: it means you are running compiz fusion06:34
nickrudGaladx, sudo dpkg --reconfigure -a  (space there)06:34

Adrian2MiL8<ziroday> this is because i try to find the way modify envyng configuration by running update from there06:37

elphiasziroday: ok 2 of the things ubotu said where not on the system and ubuntu-desktop reports the most current version...does it matter that i am using 8.10?06:48
Adrian2MiL8<klotho> i think you should make a simple dist upgrade06:48
klothoAdrian2MiL8: cool, how do I do that?06:48
zirodayelphias: thats fine, it should of got rid of every kde app for you though06:48

ubottuklotho: Wireless documentation can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs06:52
miranda_psikinja-sheep: no06:52
phixxorklotho: it depends on the card. sometimes you have to use ndiswrapper, sometimes you can use a native driver06:52
Adrian2MiL8<klotho>there is a way for use windows .sys wifi drivers in linux through ndiswarapper i believe06:52

BezNalogovHi people. I have ubuntu 8.10 and yesterday I performed the latest update. Now I can't login on my machine anymore. I can't login via gdm or via a console. As soon as I login I directly get the logon screen again. What can this be and how can I solve it?07:09
FlannelSG_: It's been moved to a historical server, which is still available, but really only for upgrading out of it.07:09

Omoikane__kranny it's weird because it was working before when I had hardy and once I installed ibex it stopped working.07:27

rdw200169BlackDex: then why bother with suspend ?08:14
BlackDexrdw200169: I don't08:15
rdw200169BlackDex: acpi is not related to shutdown08:15
BlackDexbut i thought ACPI did more then just suspend08:15
rdw200169BlackDex: it's mostly related to that08:15
arghh2d2acpi is sometimes controled by BIOS too isn't it?08:15
ferronicajoin azureusi am using ubuntu 8.10 gnome 32bit, azureus unable to update to version 4 ???08:15
rdw200169arghh2d2: BlackDex, it's primarily related to the BIOS and Motherboard08:16
BlackDexi can't turn off ACPI from BIOS, because there has to be Windows on it.. (Which is already installed)08:16
rdw200169BlackDex: no, i mean turning off ACPI in the linux kernel08:16

BezNalogovHi people. I have ubuntu 8.10 and yesterday I performed the latest update. Now I can't login on my machine anymore. I can't login via gdm or via a console. As soon as I login I directly get the logon screen again. I entered the machine via a root shell (rescue mode) and in /var/log/messages it says this: login[9998: segfault at 0 ip b7bfbb0b sp bff08810 error 4 in pam_smbpass.so[b7b9f000+12a000]. What can I do?]]08:17
rdw200169BlackDex: it's a common problem (acpi) and it's relatively easy to turn off during boot, or live cd08:17
=== SixShot is now known as SatScan
BlackDexjust add acpi=off right?08:17
rdw200169BlackDex: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions08:17
=== Swish[\] is now known as Swish
BlackDexBecause i tryed that.. after i installed it on the harddisk08:18
BlackDexbut for some reason it didn't boot to the GDM anymore08:18
rdw200169BlackDex: what motherboard are you using?08:19
BlackDexrdw200169: Some board from Acer08:19
rdw200169BlackDex: it's a built system?08:19
BlackDexrdw200169: It is an Acer Aspire X3200 (Company bought it)08:20
TTilusBezNalogov: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/samba/+bug/303458 - would those help?08:20
miranda_psiBezNalogov: looks like it might be a problem in the samba password part (just a guess) try uninstalling samba and see what happen (should be something like 'apt-get remove samba')08:20
BlackDexOk.. i just added the acpi=off... And now it stops at 'Starting bluetooth'08:20
BezNalogovI don't use samba08:20
BlackDexbut there is no bluetooth on the system :S08:20
TTilusBezNalogov: error you pasted says its a pam_smbpass blowing up, which is a samba lib08:21
miranda_psiBexNalogov: samba is installed by default, though I don't know why it would cause any problems if you dont use it08:21
rdw200169BlackDex: wow, Phenom08:21
BezNalogovI see, thanks08:21
BezNalogovThen I will try that08:21
BlackDexrdw200169: Indeed :)08:21
rdw200169BlackDex: that sucker's so new, there's nothing in a google search! (surprising, indeed!)08:22
BlackDexSpecs are greate08:22
TTilusBezNalogov: read carefully, theres several suggestions how to get rid of segfault with that particular smb lib08:22
rdw200169BlackDex: ok, here's the bad news,08:22
BlackDexto new im afraid ? :(08:22
rdw200169BlackDex: yup08:22
rdw200169BlackDex: you're likely going to have to wait until the Kernel community has caught up and released new open source 'drivers' that support your motherboard08:23
BlackDexFedora has the same problem so i knew it isn't just an ubuntu thing08:23
=== Swish[\] is now known as Swish
rdw200169BlackDex: it *will* be supported, it just takes time, particularly since Acer doesn't support open source08:24
rdw200169BlackDex: now, if you had a Dell, for example, the likelyhood that it would be supported would be higher, b/c the CEO of Dell is a Ubuntu-er08:24
BlackDexi just try'd to add acpi=oldboot, also no go08:24
BlackDexMy old system (this one) is a Dell08:24
rdw200169BlackDex: they even have, (or had), a line of Ubuntu Computers08:25
SatScanhow about that Ext4 ?08:25
epictetusyeah i have a dell ubuntu box.08:25
BlackDexrdw200169: Is there a way to prevent bluetooth module from starting on the live cd?08:25
rdw200169epictetus: woot!08:25
epictetusdell's ubuntu support is annoying though -- they only offer it on limited models08:26
rdw200169BlackDex: not that I know of, then again, i always perform my installation via the alternate cd08:26
epictetusdell actually sells more redhat than ubuntu, you can get redhat preinstalled on pretty much every Dell server08:26
epictetuslike, it is a standard option08:27
epictetuswhile ubuntu's only on a few limited models08:27
rdw200169epictetus: which consequentially guarantees that *most* linux distros will work on dells hardware-wise08:27
BlackDexrdw200169: But the only diff is it is text based right?08:27
rdw200169BlackDex: yup08:27
rdw200169BlackDex: i'm a server guy, so everything i prefer is text-based ;)08:28
FisherPriceWhy can i boot ubuntu 7.10 livecd with failsafe graphics, but not ubuntu 8.10?08:29

ikoniazicho: come on - this isn't an irc directory channel08:43
ikonia_wasabi: I disagree,08:44
FisherPricewhy will 7.10 livecd work and not 8.10?08:44
_wasabiikonia: hmm the older versions i had no problem compiling in windows08:44
FisherPricei can't boot the livecd of intrepid08:44
