rodolfojken146: do u have static installation of skype, isn't it?00:02
mylistoworks fine for me00:02
DasEI!best | nukisen00:02
ubottunukisen: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.00:02
ST47nukisen: irssi, xchat00:02
krazyfingerz47DasEI: its coz im in a network (4 pcs downloading)00:02
druntarAnacranom: No, Just been dealing with it.00:02
DasEI nukisen: pidgin, irrsi, xchat are most common00:02
gnutronp4_: chmod 700 or 755 the directory, chmod the files 600 or 660 for owner and group00:02
nukisenok i have it :)00:02
nukisenYes pdgin should be fine thx00:02
jken146rodolfo, no, I am using the package called skype, which uses the system's own qt libraries instead of skype's.  That works for me.00:02
p4_ahhhh thanks gnutron :)00:02
p4_ok i'll try that00:03
bthompsonhey guys i have a SB audigy card that I cannot get the microphone to work....anybody have any ideas..it works fine in windows..00:03

nukisendidnt thought about it works for irc as well00:03
lstarnesnukisen: pidgin's IRC support is very incomplete00:03
druntarActually, to be honest, I'm not even sure it's pulse. All I know for sure is that nothing seems to recognize my laptops built in microphone.00:03
Anacranomdruntar, i'm using OSS on my main box, my game box, and am very happy with the 5 channel audio and the ossmixer interface00:03

mylistodoes anyone know how to record skype calls in ubuntu?00:04
Anacranomdruntar, but i am using 8.04, not sure how it does in 8.1000:04
jken146rodolfo, I thought you said you found a bug in skype static?00:04
MatBoyis there a way to set a new password on the commandline without retyping the password for verification ?00:04
zerwas_There is a process which consumpts 100% cpu and which i cannot even kill with "kill -9". Is there any chance to kill it?00:04
jken146MatBoy, not to my knowledge00:04
SlartMatBoy: I think root can set passwords without having to type the old one00:04
jedi06ActionParsnip I don't have any NTFS partition linux is aware of00:04
SlartMatBoy: check man passwd00:04
gnutronp4_: in octals the read bit = 2  write = 4  execute = 1, just add them up to your liking. three fields user, group, others.00:05
rodolfojken146: sorry.. normal package00:05
MatBoySlart: yes, without the old one, but I don't want to type the new ones twice00:05
MatBoyjken146: I think the same, but I need to integrate it into a bash script :S00:05
rodolfojken146: static skype no problems..00:05
runderwobthompson: could it be related to this?  http://www.mail-archive.com/alsa-user@lists.sourceforge.net/msg23852.html00:05
jken146rodolfo, which package do you have: skype or skype-static?00:05
ActionParsnipjedi06: if you want to access the host fs from the guest, theres options in vbox to allow access00:05
SlartMatBoy: then make a script that enters it twice ... call it lazy_passwd =)00:05
Netham46"[notice caught SIGWINCH, shutting down gracefully"  I'm getting that in my Apache error log, and nothing works. Anyone know how I can fix this?00:06
gnutronp4_: ugo+rwx would be 777  get it?00:06
MatBoySlart: mhh, I can try that it echo's it twice00:06
cplusplushow could i unzip a bz2?00:06
jedi06Wait ActionParsnip that is what I am trying to do access the host from the guest but to use ntfs-3g it wants me to locate NTFS partitions which there are none00:06
rodolfojken146: now i installed skype-static.. and i can change my avatar.. but in skype package i can't change my avatr00:06
runderwocplusplus: tar jxf <bz2>00:06

BCampbellcan I get some help with mounting an ntfs drive please?00:07
rodolfojken146: what's your arch?00:07
runderwocplusplus: j = bz2, x = extract, f = file00:07
jken146rodolfo, sorry, I don't understand you?00:07
bthompsonrunderwo, do i need to restart any service once i edit this file..00:07
gnutroncplusplus: the -v is verbose00:07
kitcherunderwo: just easier to omit the j last typing by one letter really00:07
n8tuserBCampbell -> can we get you started with man mount00:07
rodolfojken146: amd64, x86?00:07
jedi06Action Parsnip the only access vbox i know of is installing guest additions which is apprently hard or impossible from a livecd environment00:08
ActionParsnipjedi06: shutdown the guest and check ALL of the guest options, one option will be local folders which you can add00:08
p4_gnutron, are the numbers due to flag bits being set?00:08
runderwobthompson: it looks like it's a problem in the driver that has recently been fixed.  So you might need to wait for a new kernel release.00:08
bthompsonrunderwo, my card is an audigy1 so i don't know if that matters..00:08
jken146rodolfo, x8600:08
jedi06Ok I'll try that then ActionParsnip00:08
rodolfojken146: so.. mine is amd6400:08
jken146rodolfo, so that's why there are two packages!00:08
BCampbelllooked that over n8tuser...questions is why the ntfs config doesn't tool see it, only the windows drive00:09
gnutronBCampbell: mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1  /media/mountpoint-dir i believe00:09
jedi06how do you tell it to shutdown from in livecd command line?00:09
bthompsonrunderwo, i really don't get any sound at all....it says on this one it is low...but i get nothing at all when trying to record with sound recorder or audacity..00:09
gnutronp4_: exactly if i understand you00:09
jken146jedi06, sudo shutdown -h now00:09
runderwobthompson: I don't know if it matters either.  But assuming you have enabled the mic and the record volume is up, then there seems to be a drivers/hardware problem.00:09
gnutronp4_: a 6 is read/write where a 7 is read/write/execute00:09
StargazerHow do i use 'ssh' to get into my VPS ?00:09
runderwobthompson: you could also try arecord.00:10
n8tuserBCampbell -> what ntfs config tool?  what command have you issued?00:10
cplusplusyasm is not existing in version 0.6.1 for kubuntu 6?00:10
BCampbellapt-get install ntfs-config00:10
n8tuserStargazer -> is your VPS running an sshd server?00:10
p4_i see, thanks alot gnutron00:10

chanweiyeecheck your fstab file00:10
cplusplusFound yasm 0.4.000:10
cplusplusMinimum version is yasm-0.6.100:10
gnutronBCampbell: you'll finf ntfs-config in your menu after installed.00:10
bthompsonrunderwo, how do i run that...i tried in terminal and i get a bunch of question marks scrolling by..00:11
BCampbellgnutron - I can see it, but it doesn't see all the ntfs drives00:11
StargazerN8tuser, most likely.00:11
Netham46"[notice] caught SIGWINCH, shutting down gracefully"  I'm getting that in my Apache error log, and nothing works. Anyone know how I can fix this?00:11
n8tuserBCampbell -> and did you attempt to configure? and what about mount? did you try to mount the partition?00:11
RediXeIs there a way to host a local repo with ubuntu packages?00:11
gnutronjedi06: sudo shutdown -h now00:11

streenzWhen I power up my PC GRUB loads Ubuntu by default.. is there a way within Ubuntu when I'm restarting to change the default to WinXP, but just for that one time?00:13
runderwobthompson: arecord uses alsa, and those other things may be using OSS, which might be the issue.00:13
rascal999i have Intrepid ibex00:13
n8tuserStargazer -> why not ask them if their VPS is really running an sshd server so you can ssh into it?00:13
runderwobthompson: OSS mode is only an emulation mode in ubuntu.00:13

AceBlade258how so?00:15
streenzAceBlade258 - what I want to do is when Ubuntu is running, do something so that when I click "restart" I can walk away and the PC will log out of Ubuntu and power down, then power up and load windows without any input00:15
Dr_willisstreenz,  ive seen some distros thjat let you sort of do that.. but i think it can cause probvlems. its best to just set a 20-30 sec wait/menu delay on grub and select what you want. Its also possible to have it rember the last os you selected.. and always default to that00:15
n8tuserStargazer -> if you ever get stuck someday, google is your friend, but typically   ssh -l username remotehostipaddress00:15
AceBlade258streenz: sorry, cant help you there, i'm kinda newbish00:15

gnutronAceBlade258: do you see a boot menu ? if so just use recovery mode00:17
Dr_willisstreenz,  niot that ive noticed.. You could go to the grub homepage and start reading the docs.. i may ov overlooked somthing like what you are wanting to do.  its possible to set the 'default' line from a script  i imagine. but ive not seen any tools in ubuntu that automate that00:17
runderwozerwas_: probably not, but you can try kill -STOP00:17
gnutronAceBlade258: note your path and stuff may be different00:17
drashstreenz: maybe grub-choose-default could help you out with , never tried it myself .. just an idea00:18

DasEIhsalem: if you just call vlc, does it shut down ?00:37
gnutronhsalem: got w32codecs installed? could be in that package, proper codecs, then xine, vlc etc should would. you might install gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly also.00:37
n8tuserLeventersoY -> you have to ifdown eth0   assuming it is eth0 you're after00:37
streenzL-argiplex, does Gadmin-Rsync work to back up data from a local directory to a samba share? I tried a different program and it didnt register a "smb://directoryname" location as a valid directory00:37
n8tuserLeventersoY -> then ifup eth000:37
dsnaikeyou don't so not the problem00:37
DasEIgnutron: vlc brigs it's own codecs00:37
hsalemi start vlc and starts00:37
linxuz3rL-argiplex: is there a package for gadmin-rsync00:37
Dr_willisstreenz,  what app dident like smb://  ?? that would be most likely only working for gnome apps.00:38
hsalemas soon as i drag the avi over it and drop it it shuts down00:38
Netham46"[notice caught SIGWINCH, shutting down gracefully"  I'm getting that in my Apache error log, and nothing works. Anyone know how I can fix this?00:38

n8tuserNetham46 -> what triggered this?00:38

streenzDr_willis, I cant remember off the top of my head, I tried it a month or so ago and gave up or got distracted00:38

dsnaikehsalem try using the menu in the player to see if that works00:38
Netham46n8tuser, semingly nothing. It was running perfectly for almost a year, then it went down earlier, and this is what I'm getting.00:39
n8tuserR0b0t1 -> easily, refer to your menu.lst of where this kernel and initrd resides, the unreference them and delete afterwards00:39
L-argiplexstreenz: I have some admins running those across continents. They say its rsync, differential backups every day and its also encrypted via ssh/crypto00:39
Dr_willisstreenz,  the thing to rember is the smb:// and other fancy whatever://  stuff is pretty much gnomes speciual way of accesing special files/places :) kde uses kioslaves to do a similer thing. Not sure what gnome calls it.00:39
L-argiplexstreenz: Im confident girl00:39
hsalemdsnaike/DasEI ever from File/Open/filename.avi it shuts down00:39
n8tuserNetham46 -> anyone was hitting your apache when it broke or just out of the blue?00:39
Netham46n8tuser, I was browsing some forums I host when it started.00:40
DasEIhsalem: try a different avi ?00:40
streenzDr_willis, so a smb://sharedfolder  would be in my filesystem under a different name? or should rsync accept "smb://sharedfolder" as a directory?00:40
dsnaikehsalem u said you installed codecs can u specify00:40
hsalemDasEI same problem00:40
apocolyps1i still cant get my grub menu to fit on my widescreen 1366x76800:40
n8tuserNetham46 -> wait a second, browsing some forums?  that is not your apache server, it is someone else at the remote site.. am confused00:40
hsalemthe w32codes and others00:41
Netham46n8tuser, it's my server, I host some forums that I was looking at.00:41
Netham46n8tuser, I'll brb.00:41
L-argiplexhsalem: trolling are we ?00:41
Dr_willisstreenz,  gnome file manager 'browses' shares - it may or may not be 'mounting' them. use the mount command to see.. If its MOUNTED to a local directrory then every program would be able to access the things as if they were a local directrory. If its just browsing - then you canhave issues with non-gnome apps00:41
hsalemL-argiplex what do you mean by trolling?00:41
DasEIhsalem: can it play mp3 ?00:42
hsalemDasEI let me check00:42

dsnaikehsalem try one more thing install smplayer and try it00:43
nukisenhope it is temporary00:43
streenzDr_willis, okay I dont see it using the mount command, so I will have to mount it first, and then I should have no issues.. thanks, I didnt realize it might not be mounted00:43

n8tuserwhose using vlc to listen to shoutcast? do you find that sometimes you're unable to listen to them? is it the connection that prevents it?00:49

henriHi everyone, i'm an ubuntu user - I recently thought i'd try and upgrade my nvidia drivers to the latest .run (rather than an apt packaged) version, two hours later and I think apt's managed to remove xserver-xorg which I think i've now reinstalled - i'm now using envy-ng to install my drivers (as i'd just like my desktop back to be honest!) - there are no errors, indeed nvidia stuff seems to load fine - but when gdm starts all the right s00:52
henriso i can't get to a login prompt with the nvidia drivers anymore, despite the configuration being quite similar00:52
henriif not the same before00:52
Billydoes anyone know how to change ownership from root to the user00:52
nukisenlets see if i can get it out in the net00:52
henriBilly: chown user.group file1 file200:52
n8tuserDasEl i introduced this to a friend, and he was elated to find out there practically thousands of channels streaming via shoutcast. now all he has to have is to find time.. lol00:53
Netham46<gnutron> Netham46: its really not wise to browse the web with a web server, thats debateable but sigwinch is signal window change size signal. it may have tripped on something   I wasn't on the webserver, I was at school.00:53

Billyis that the same for a directory00:53
Netham46n8tuser, I'm back, btw.00:53
henriDasEI, yep00:53
henriBilly: yes, yoiu can also do it recursively (chown -R ...)00:53
gnutronhenri: i think you need to run nvidia-settings from terminal but i would check the docs on that.00:53
streenzwhere is the option to stop it showing mounted disks/USB/CDs etc on the desktop as icons?00:54
henrignutron: Interesting, i'm using the same config i've always used00:54
pelegIs this a known bug? I've seen some reports on the web, but I couldn't understand the resolution: evolution send my stuff in plaintext (!), even if I define a SSL/TLS connection, and hence dovecot refuses it.00:54
n8tuserNetham46 -> okay, did you bring snacks? am hungry..lol00:54
henriyou think my xorg.conf needs remaking?00:54
Netham46n8tuser, lol.00:54
StargazerI need to FIX an issue that has been a pain in my side: beeping. like an error, ubuntu beeps ? yeah. instead of using my sound card it uses my speakers/headphones. anyone know how to permanently turn this off ?00:54
Netham46n8tuser, but, know what's going on? =/00:54
gnutronhenri: you could back it up and try that.00:54
DasEIhenri:.. uses xorg 7.4, often nasty to firmware, depends on card (me ati-user), backup xorg.conf and sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg00:54
pelegThis is what I saw, for example: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/evolution/+bug/25790600:54
henrithat'll just restore default xorg.conf (i.e. minimal, vesa)00:54
henrifrom what i've seen00:55
n8tuserNetham46 -> about that sigwinch?  i think gnutron is correct about that00:55

pelegAnacranom, there is no #evolution as far as I know, but I didn't do a long research about it. I don't know if it is ubuntu-specific: I have found in the web mostly about ubuntu, but also one complaint with fedore, something quite similar01:15
jp_sfDezine: I had to put everything in red to start to hear something01:15
abouchershould i upgrade to 8.10 with ubuntu server cd?01:15
vertanaDezine, I had that problem before and the culprit was that while my Alsa volumes were up my OSS ones were not01:15
aboucheror go clean install01:15
vertanaThis shouldn't be as much as a problem these days but you could still be using OSS drivers (which are fed through Alsa, which is why it may affect it)01:16
Anacranompeleg, i'm doing some testing on sled11, will compare to my Ubuntu stats01:16
pelegAnacranom, hey, if you find out anything, let me know :-)01:17
onexusedaboucher: I don't know how it is for others, but I had problems trying to upgrade from 8.04 to 8.10.01:17

maxxistquick question for flash 64 bit folks.  which folders do I copy the plugin into for all users to use?01:17
rwwDezine: Yeah, gnome-alsamixer has everything, as far as I can see. I couldn't get any sound at all yesterday because a control that appears to only be in g-am was muted.01:17

mrpocketswhat the hell happened when I pressed Windows+R01:19
tom0360Do I have to( or can I ) disable SSH root login on a default Ubuntu 8.10 (intrepid) install, or is it off by default or something not to be concerned with as it is not a server?01:19
mrpocketsand how the hell do i disable it?01:19
linux_guyI have installed virtualbox-ose and I cannot seem to get it to start under apps>accs>vboxose01:19

istvan_i need to ssh to a mac, how might I do this?01:20
onexusedvertana: It's not.  When I did a clean install, it was fine.01:20
vertanaOnexused: Another way is to try a usb keyboard (assuming it's either hardware issue or driver issue)01:20
istvan_i'm on the lan, and it's ip is
Dr_willisistvan_,  install a ssh server on the mac01:20
onexusedvertana: A clean install of 8.10 after that, that is.01:20
istvan_so I do need to install a ssh server? does the os come with one?01:20
gnutronmrpockets: it should be off by default unless you enabled root, if sshd is not running its a moot issue, not to worry.01:20
rwwtom0360: Default Ubuntu installs don't have the root account enabled, so you can't login to it over ssh even if PermitRootLogin (or whatever it is) is enabled in sshd_config.01:21
Dr_willisistvan_,  go ask in a mac channel perhaps?01:21
eseven73linux_guy: try typing 'VirtualBox' in a terminal it is case sensitive01:21

gnutronmrpockets: sorry01:23
mrpocketsnot a problem01:23
rwwgnutron: no problem, happens to me all the time :)01:23
vertanaOnexused: The only thing that jumps out at me as obvious is that (If I remember right) from 8.04 to 8.10 Ubuntu switched to the evdev driver to improve hotplugging and so your drivers may have not uninstalled for the new one to come in and your X may have gotten "confused" between the two.01:23
linux_guyi tried add/remove, didnt work, then removed it.  then i got the package from virtualbox.org01:23
gnutronrww: i spilled coffee and got side tracked01:23
tom0360rww is there anything in a default install that I might need to disable or change to secure the system.01:24
linux_guyesev, i've tried every way i know how, it shows up in the apps menu01:24

Dr_willisbeckster,  crazty as in? Sounds like a compiz thing also..01:25

vertanaBeckster: I apologize I came in late, what is the problem?01:26
Dr_willisbeckster,  you meant o say it 'zoomed' in on the desktop?01:26
Dr_willisthats a compiz feature. :) try windowshey+mousewheel  to zoom in/out perhaps?01:26
gnutronbeckster: i think Dr_willis is right, sounds like a compiz key-binding01:26
Dr_willisi will say that win+r dont do anything here.. buti do disable a lot of the compiz extras01:27
Dr_williswin+mousewheel does zoom however in and out :)01:27
becksterthanks guys!01:27
Dr_willisthere really need to be a nice tool that reads the compiz settings/conmfigs and shows a  guide to what all keys are bound to what featrues.01:28
gnutroni never use the 'windows' key..... bad mojo01:28
Dr_willisgnutron,  its the only key on this keyboard thats not got all the letters wornm off :)01:28

vertanaI never use the Windows key either, supers always lead me jacked up settings :)01:29
Dr_willisvertana,  ccsm dosent give a nice clean 'all the keys being used are ....' type  sheet i could print out /look out to fgure out what bindings are in use. :) ive had to excplore ccsm befor to figure them out. which is not that good a way to do it01:29

vertanaDr_Willis: Either that or even a simple inclusion of CCSM so that we could give people a place to start would be nice. As it stands in Ubuntu, while Compiz is enabled by default, there is no default tool to help with Compiz key bindings (just general Gnome bindings).01:32

InterGalactic010Hi everyone, would anyone be free to help on a quick question I have please?01:39
vertanaSilent: I don't know too much about that (as I Have not tried that USB adaptor myself), but I do know zd1211rw is more tailored for another chipset, and the chipset you are trying to use has its own specific driver. In almost all cases it makes more sense to use the driver specifically made for it. Also, the first hit someone had to modify the source so while YMMV it is a good idea to try the instructions first hit and if not just keep a tab on what modul01:39
vertanaes it inserted so you can take them out if they do not work as promised. (keep tabs with lsmod before and after installation)01:39

dayo_temppy: but i read somewhere recently that laptops now have some kind of anti-fall protection for the hdd. like when there is sudden motion, the head backs off the disk. not sure how it works. i'll see if i can find the article. saw it on reddit.01:57
temppydayo_: I guess just make sure to have backups.  I mean, if it works for you, why not?  But, I think there is some sort of risk.  I don't know at all how big it is.  I think its why SSDs are becoming popular for laptops/netbooks; no moving parts.01:57
NodeRazornot if you want to extract lots of files...01:57
kesidrash, in transmission?01:57
vertanamib_xmowur6k: Have you tried to install them Administration > Hardware Drivers?01:57
temppydayo_: probably an accelerometer.01:57
dayo_temppy: SSDs still have the size issue, tho01:57
lifenovadayo: I've read that before too... problem with that I've heard is that sometimes it's a little sensitive and slows you down when you're legitimately working01:57
dayo_temppy: yeah01:57
kesidrash, nevermind, think I found it.01:57
vertanamib_xmowur6k: Just go under there and it should say Nvidia driver (recommended) and make sure it is activated and it may require a restart.01:57
MiescoI messed up alsa, I deleted .asoundrc.asoundconf01:58
MiescoHow do I get it to work again?01:58
NodeRazorthis will extract rar files in the folder01:58
drashkesi: it's the "peers" tab sorry in transmission prefs01:58

mib_xmowur6kvertana: thanks alot, this is giving me such a headache01:59
illumerealtime-lsm-source doesn't appear to exist anymore in intrepid?01:59
vertanamib_xmowur6k: The MAIN package you need is nvidia-glx-177 (If you have a newer card, which most do) and it's no problem. SYnaptic should tell you all the other packages you need to make the glx one work.02:00
linux_guyim downloading vmware for linux, should i get tar image or rpm image?02:00
illumehrmm... maybe a reboot will fix it!   brb02:00
vertanamib_xmowur6k: Generally though it's MUCH easier to do under Hardware Drivers (or Restricted Drivers if you have an older Ubuntu)02:00
__dean__linux_guy: get the tarball02:00
n8tuserlinux_guy -> for ubuntu, it is deb, for other linux maybe rpm02:00
lifenovaCan anyone help with usplash troubles? It hasn't worked for me since I install ubuntu hardy... I've now upgraded to 8.10 and it still hasn't worked... I've tried removing the package and reinstalling, and I've changed the theme too to no avail. I remember that the splash did show when I was using the LiveCD. Not a major problem, but something I want to try to fix02:00
__dean__linux_guy: you could get the rpm and convert it with alien also02:01
linux_guyim so confused i know a prog called alien that can convert rpm to deb02:01
lifenovaBy not working, I mean that there is no splash screen, just a black screen while the system boots02:01
NodeRazorFound one for tar.z files, now will recoded it http://paste2.org/p/13104702:01

linux_guythanks guys02:01
lifenovaCpudan80: sure thing, thanks for your help02:01
Cpudan80lifenova: that used to be the factoid.....02:02
vertanamib_xmowur6k: Yes, 177 is the driver you need.02:02
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about about02:02
Cpudan80lifenova: I didnt need the -02:02
ubottuTo select the usplash artwork you want, use "sudo update-alternatives --config usplash-artwork.so && sudo update-initramfs -u" - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/USplashCustomizationHowto for adding your custom artwork02:02
Cpudan80!brokenusplash | lifenova02:02
ubottulifenova: Supported screen resolutions are sometimes detected incorrectly, causing the splash screen to not appear and slowing down boot. Edit /etc/usplash.conf and change "xres" and "yres" to a resolution that your graphics system certainly supports, then run « sudo update-usplash-theme usplash-theme-ubuntu »02:02
annafor a dektop that has 8GB of ram which version of linux kernel is best 64 bit or 32bit with PAE ?02:03
lifenovaCpudan80: hehe, I just found that myself on the factoids page. Thanks for your assistance :)02:03
Cpudan80lifenova: thats my factoid! :-P02:03
Cpudan80That was a pain in the butt to find the answer too02:03
dayo_anna: anything above 4gb is 64bit territory02:03
vertanaanna: to utilize the RAM 64-bit.02:03
varunguys how do you change what interface the system sounds use?02:03
Cpudan80A lot of people with laptops seem to have the usplash prob02:03
dayo_anna: i have that issue on our servers. they're upwards of 8gb ram but on 32bit. need to migrate them to 64bit02:04
lifenovaCpudan80: desktop here, but whatever02:04

varunlike the sound in rythmbox works, but not the sound from the system (eg Login sound) or firefox, any ideas?02:04
Cpudan80lifenova: well that seems to fit your description anyway (the problem that is)02:04
dayo_Alex_21: squid?02:04
annadayo:would a 32 bit enable kernel use all the 8GB of ram ?02:04
linux_guywhen i use apt-get do i ALWAYS need to use 'sudo'?02:04
temppyanna: I thinks both have their problems.  Ive heard pae is buggy, but so is 64bit.  Do you really need all that RAM?  Are you running a server or something?02:04
dayo_anna: not that i know of02:05
vertanavarun: does the sound work on other program even when rhythmbox is not on?02:05
lifenovalinux_guy: you don't need sudo if you type apt-get moo or apt-get --help, if I recall correctly02:05
nickrudlinux_guy, yes02:05
lifenovaHm, the xres and yres parameters in my usplash.conf file match the resolution I'm currently using02:06
gnutronvarun: in the menu system/preferences/sound sound tab and run the tests. also ensure you use alsa in general tab settings.02:06
Alex_21Hey, maybe Squid, but a tutorial is greatly appreciated, or at least suggestions for search keywords would be appreciated02:06

andypls1guys my resolution is screwed02:06
annatemppy:its my brother's gaming PC that he had vista on i am going to use as a desktop for developing apps (postgresql, mysql,etc..)02:06
andypls1can anyone help me fix it?02:06
vertanavarun: Sometimes Gstreamer conflicts with some other sound systems (This happens to me if  I have VLC up and then try to play a song on rhythmbox with VLC still up)02:06
__dean__linux_guy: not for apt-get moo but you for installing stuff because that needs root02:06
vertanamib_xmowur6k:  Which error?02:06
varunvertana: it dosnt work with rythmbox turned off02:07
dayo_Alex_21: hang on, let me give u some of my squid bookmarks02:07
lifenova!ask | andypls102:07
ubottuandypls1: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)02:07
nickrudlinux_guy, a rule of thumb is anything that alters/adds any file outside of your home requires root access, either with sudo or gksu02:07
mib_xmowur6kvertana: error could not locate nvidia.ko for module nvidia in the dkms tree02:07
linxuz3rwhats a good way to copy directories and files while preserving root and permission?02:07
gnutronlifenova: moo  = command not found, my box is broked :(  j/k02:07
varunvertana: i think it is an interface issue,02:07
lifenovagnutron: haha02:07
mib_xmowur6kvertana: then is goes on about running a dkms build for the kernel02:07
andypls1lifenova: my resolution got stuck at 800x600 and there's no way to fix it. i am using Nvidia02:08
vertanamib_xmowur6k: sudo aptitude install dkms02:08
__dean__gnutron: apt-get moo just draws an ASCII art picture of a Ccow02:08
varunvertana: like that is, only one of the interface works, in Soud Preferences in gnome, sound only works if i put it in HDA Intel OSS02:08
varunvertana: on the other interfaces, it makes a clicky noise02:08
vertanamib_xmowur6k: Yes, DKMS is so stuff can be inserted into kernel while it's running. You need this to insert modules dynamically.02:08
gnutron__dean__: i wouldnt be surprised if it actually did!02:08
varunvertana: and thats exactly the same noise i get with ubuntu system sounds such as the login sound02:08
Jack_Sparrowandypls1, HAve you installed nvidia-settings02:09
temppyanna: personally, I would forget about the 5g of ram you loose, and just go with 32bit for starters (I have never used much more and 0.5g.  The rest of my 2g just goes to caching).  If you need more, reinstall.  Anyway, good luck02:09
vertanavarun: So, rhythmbox works fine for sound, but NOTHING else does?02:09
andypls1Jack_Sparrow: yes i did02:09
linxuz3rwhats a good way to copy directories and files while preserving root and permission?02:09
andypls1apt-get install nvidia-glx-new02:09
Jack_Sparrowandypls1, what happened when you ran it02:09
andypls1well at first the resolution was too high02:09
vertanalinuxuz3r: Just use the cp command as root.02:09
andypls1and i didn't like it02:09
varunvertana: oh no most of the applications works with sound like vlc..etc....but sound dosnt work from firefox and system sounds (again such as when i login the noise dosnt work)02:10
usserlinxuz3r: cp -R -p02:10
gnutronlinxuz3r: cp -p  didnt preserve stuff for you?02:10
Jack_Sparrowandypls1, Keep it on one line please, dont break it up02:10
andypls1so then i tried to get to a better resolution by changing some settings, and now it got stuck at 800X60002:10
varunvertana: i hear clicky noises instead02:10
usserlinxuz3r: -p tells cp to preserve permissions -R, tells to copy recursively02:10
vertanavarun: I don't know off the top of my head but give me a few minutes and hopefully the 'net helps us here :)02:10
linxuz3rguys cp: failed to preserve ownership02:11

linxuz3rguys cp: failed to preserve ownership02:11
Jack_Sparrowandypls1, run nvidia-settings and set the res you want02:11
__dean__linxuz3r: try it as root02:11
mib_xmowur6kvertana: still saying "Module nvidia not found." when i run sudo modprobe nvidia02:12
nickrudlinxuz3r, are you copying to an ntfs/vfat partition?02:12
mib_xmowur6kvertana: should i restart first02:12
usserbthompson: gnome-do i think is what you looking for, for kde3 katapult does it, kde4 has it built in02:12
vertanamib_xmowur6k: Once you have DKMS then try to install Nvidia from Square 1.02:12
varunvertana: i remember reading an article about something similar, it went on about the sound card not supporting a frequency....i'll try to find that link, not sure if i can02:12
linxuz3rnickrud: yes02:12
andypls1Jack_Sparrow: its telling me that i am not using the Nvidia driver, and i have to edit the X cofiguration file02:13
__dean__linxuz3r: then do just cp -r02:13
nickrudlinxuz3r, those don't use unix file permissions, it's normal02:13
linxuz3rim copying to fat3202:13
linxuz3rbut im copying it back to ext302:13

nickrudlinxuz3r, using vfat as sort of a backup?02:13
vertanavarun: under Sound preferences make sure all sound tests work. IF not select proper system and then test to make sure all work.02:14
mib_xmowur6kvertana: how can i check if i have the dkms installed properly cus i think it is messing up and that is why i am having so many problems.02:14

varuni'am installing libcanberra-gnome as recommended by drash. hope this works =P02:15
nickrudlinxuz3r, it's never a bad idea; if you're just storing the files on the vfat for later return and use in ext3 __dean__ has the best advice02:15
Dr_willisAtomX1211,  that feature has been in Linux for Years. :) i found a tool that adds it to winjdows also. :)02:16
lifenovaCpudan80: well, that didn't solve it unfortunately. ah well02:16
vertanavarun: OK, let me know if that works for you :)02:16
dayo_Alex_21: so far the config files of squid and of BackupPC are the best commented that i've seen02:16

Cpudan80lifenova: yeah sorry - I saw that before my client went on the fritz02:16
andypls1Jack_Sparrow: should i remove it and then install it again?02:16
Cpudan80lifenova: you sure x and y aren't reversed?02:16
varunoh forgot to mention something important, i think this problem arised when i installed KDE package on ubuntu, i'm not sure thou thats just guess, and all the sound works perfectly on KDE but not on gnome02:16
lifenovaCpudan80: Fairly certain... y should be 768 and x should be 1024, correct?02:17
frederikhello! how can i define a script to be run on pressing fn+f5?02:17
grindkingvarun: because it takes some extra work to get sound working properly sometimes in gnome02:17
Cpudan80lifenova: ehhh... that's a good question02:17
lifenovaCpudan80: I even tried lowering it to 800 x 60002:17
grindkingvarun: esd runs sounds properly, but isn't better, and that's what kde uses02:17
Cpudan80lifenova: lemme check02:17
Jack_Sparrowandypls1, if you install and run nvidia-xconfig it will remove stuff that you will need to put back.  I still dont have a handle on all the ways to untangle these02:17

grindkingvarun: i just spent the past two days getting all my sound perfectly setup in gnome02:18

Jack_Sparrowandypls1, runit02:18
Jack_Sparrowandypls1, run it02:18
grindkingvarun: multiple sounds at the same time, sound with flash, dts/ac3, x264, etc02:18

grindking5.1 output of course, with spdif02:18
Cpudan80lifenova: And you're running the default screen? IE. No modifications to it or anything02:18

linxuz3r__dean__: i get errors on the command that you gave me02:19
grindkingvertana: i have them installed i think02:19
Jack_Sparrowandypls1, it should just rebuild xorg.conf.. so restart X and try nvidia settings again02:20
usserfrederik: i may be wrong02:20
lifenovaCpudan80: From time to time, it seems somewhat slow. I haven't really timed it per se02:20
nickrudygor, a better question for #winehq , cedega is just a version of wine02:20
vertanagrindking: Please provide those packages to mib... he's the one who needs to know if all his packages are installed. I appreciate it :)02:20
frederiknickrud: usser was right, the keystroke is not being registered :(02:20

usserygor: it translates winAPI to unix system calls basically02:20
mib_xmowur6kvertana: sorry u list me02:20
grindkingmib_xmowur6k: do you want me to do dpkg -l | grep nvidia and paste that to you or a screenshot of me searching ffor nvidia in synaptic?02:21
vertanamib_xmowur6k: SHortly grindking should tell you all his packages that he has under nvidia. Make sure they are all installed02:21
Cpudan80lifenova: hrm..... are you sure you did the file right? should be like xres=1024 <enter key> yres=76802:21

vertanamib_xmowur6k: Alright, let us know how it works out :)02:26
grindkingvertana: yah i have to wait on this bugfix on flash 10, im running d21, and apparently since i have an older 64bit proc without lahf flag i get random crashes haha02:27
grindkingso all my browsing is an adventure02:27

gnutrontux9778: which what for x64?  i think you want the amd64 iso02:27
vertanagrindking: Why don't you downgrade to Flash 9? Same bug or just stubborn? Lol.02:27
mib_xmowur6kvertana: ok going to try this and back in 5min THANKS ALOT u guys have been alot of help02:27
yimerhey how do i get java to work for online games on ubuntu02:27
mib_xmowur6kgrindking: BIG HELP, BRB02:28
vertanamib_xmowur6k:  No problem, it's what the channel is here for :)02:28
grindkingwell, im not positive i can get it to work but i guess i COULD do it02:28
Rapture2k4ok... so i've got a simple topology (2 Vista clients, 1 Ubuntu Server 8.10 [no gui]). On this server I have a WD MyBook USB HD fstabed to /media/WD250. All I want to do is allow ANYONE with a valid ip in my subnet (10.0.0.x/30) to see and read/write to it. I thought I had it up and running, but I cannot write to the drive via network. I have set 'chmod -R 777 /media/WD250'02:28
grindkingalso im thinking i can just wait out a fix02:28
tux9778i tried the x64 alternate hardy but seemed like there was alot of stuff missing in it gnutrom02:28
nickrudyimer, install   sun-java6-plugin02:28
grindkingit can't be THAT long i wouldn't think02:28
usserRapture2k4: use nfs02:28
vertanagrindking: Didn't they just come out with a 64-bit flash?02:28
usserRapture2k4: samba is a pain in the neck02:28
grindkingvertana: haha yah like a month ago :/02:28
grindkingbut there's been one release update!02:28
andypls1who's the guy i was talking with?02:28
__dean__linxvertana: yes02:29
yimernickrud where do i type that02:29
grindkingso i mean, would best bet be that wrapper thing with flash 9?02:29
vertanagrindking: Then it shouldn't be too long for at least a beta of that client. Or at least the next Ubuntu release :p02:29
Rapture2k4usser: i am a linux newbie, and everything i've read on NFS goes way over my head (which is odd, considering I do networking for a living)02:29
grindkingi could easily try it now that im familar with where all those libs go02:29
gnutrontux9778: you want the intrepid version of this iso probably- ubuntu-8.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso02:29
nickrud!synaptic | yimer (your master control for installing software, ctl-f to search)02:29
ubottuyimer (your master control for installing software, ctl-f to search): synaptic is Ubuntu's Graphical Package Manager. For a good howto see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticHowto02:29
vertanagrindking: Lol, I run 64-bit also. Lemme know how that works out! =p02:29
tux9778u mean gnutrom 8.10 alternate02:29
Rapture2k4usser: do you have any good newbie-friendly sites on NFS?02:29
grindkingif you have a newer proc or if you cat cpuinfo and it shows lahf02:29
grindkingyou won't get the crash02:29
gnutrontux9778: the amd64 works for intel pc's also btw02:29
linux_guyhow can i tell if i have alien or not?02:30
usserRapture2k4: yea sure02:30
grindkingim on an fx5502:30
nickrudyimer, synaptic can be found at system->admin->synaptic package manager02:30
usserRapture2k4: hang on a sec02:30
grindkinglinux_guy: the package?02:30
vertanagrindking: I know I don't get the crash. I've been good ever since Flash 9.02:30
grindkinglinxuz3r: dpkg -l | grep alien02:30
Rapture2k4usser: thanx02:30
andypls1Jack_Sparrow:  are you there?02:30
nickrudlinux_guy, dpkg -l alien , if it is the first two chars will be ii02:30
grindkingvertana: but are you using the native 64bit flash 10, or still with the wrapper?02:30
gnutrontux9778: 8.10 yes if you want intrepid, as for alternative i'm not sure, thats the iso i use02:30
Jack_Sparrowandypls1, yes, one sec02:30
linux_guyyeah i need to convert an rpm to deb02:30
tux9778i have a amd gnutrom just was wondering if 8.10 is up to date and is there devs on the project x64?02:30
nickrud!alien | linux_guy02:30
ubottulinux_guy: RPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous and unsupported)02:30
vertanagrindking: Still using the wrapper : /02:31
lifenovaCpudan80: that didn't work, but I may have just found out why it's not working02:31
nickrudlinux_guy, are you sure you need the rpm? What are you installing?02:31
grindkingvertana: but it works fine? like not choppy, etc?02:31
usserRapture2k4: take a look at this, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=249889 and nfs is supported on windows natively, u just have to install microsoft nfs services or something like that02:31
Cpudan80lifenova: whats that?02:31
Rapture2k4much luv02:31
tux9778ok gnutrom i'll try 8.10 see if that helps with my ipod issuses02:31
vertanagrindking: Works just as well as a native 32-bit Windows version (from what I've seen based on Vista).02:31
linux_guynick: i need to install vmware.. available in tar or rpm02:31
lifenovaCpudan80: I found this link http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-937527.html and one of the posts on it says to use sudo usplash to test it... did that and I got a message about a missing console font02:31
grindkingsigh, i was right about to watch a movie too02:31
grindkingnow im goign to have to try it :D02:31
vertanagrindking: At least for me... as always YMMV.02:31
rww!vmware | linux_guy: use these instructions instead02:32
ubottulinux_guy: use these instructions instead: VMWare is not available in the Ubuntu repositories. Consider using !QEmu or !VirtualBox as alternatives. Instructions for installing VMWare manually are at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VMware02:32
nickrudlinux_guy, get the tar!!! the rpm will break02:32
grindkingwell i tihnk the reason i gave up was cuz i was having sound issues02:32
usserRapture2k4: and here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/32405502:32
grindkingbut that was because i didn't have my .asoundrc file setup right02:32
=== five_ is now known as Guest75603
grindkingill go back to the wrapper for sure02:32
grindkingi think tehre's even a walkthrough on the ubuntu forums for it02:32
vertanagrindking: To be honest I just this computer from my girlfriend's house (Haven't used it since 2006) and everything worked Out of the box. EVERYTHING. Except for Nvidia driver of course.02:33
Rapture2k4usser: thanx alot, i'm gonna give it a shot02:33
grindkingim trying to use this as my main machine02:33
grindkinggave up a couple years back, trying again now02:33
bthompsonim in add/remove program how do i tell what version of the software im searching is going to install...example i did a search for kino...how do i tell what version is going to install..02:33
vertanagrindking: I did a clean install of 8.10 (last used was 7.04 I think) and flash worked perfect after a ubuntu-restricted-extras install.02:33
guestguestnewdo u guys know of any pdf reader that has a good bookmarking feature that i can install from the repos?02:33
tux9778is there a a atheros driver availbe for ar5009 wifi?02:33

nickrud!hardysources | yimer (good for hardy on up)02:34
ubottuyimer (good for hardy on up): In System->Admin->Software Sources, enable (main) (universe) (restricted) and (multiverse) and disable the Cdrom on the Ubuntu Software tab. On the Updates tab, enable (hardy-security) and (hardy-updates).02:34
Cpudan80lifenova: interesting ...02:34
andypls1Jack_Sparrow: things are  better now. the resolutiong is the highest possible, but that's too high for me, it's not like that that it used to be. when i decrease the resolution things get a little better but they are still ugly .when i run "nvidia-settings" it's saying that i am not using Nvidia X driver02:34
vertanatux9778: I believe mad5k would for that, just google. (I am NOT sure on that)02:34
roddI have something weird to ask you02:34
nickrudyimer, do that, then check synaptic again. You'll need to close synaptic temporarily02:34
vertanarodd: Shoot.02:34
gnutronbthompson: apt-cache search [package] will say what version the repo's have.02:34
yimerkk ty02:34
roddDo you know how to develop games for Linux?02:34
linxuz3rcan you append tar files?02:34
linxuz3rappened to tar files?02:35
Jack_Sparrowandypls1, How did you install the driver02:35
tux9778i been googleing it up vertana nothing seems to pop up just posts for it02:35
gnutronbthompson: dpkg -s package will show installed version of same.02:35
roddI've been searching for a while and didn't find anything all over the net....02:35
lifenovaCpudan80: Just tried to get the error message again, and couldn't. What had happened was that the whole screen went black (I assume it was simulating what usplash should look like) and then I saw plain white text that said something about a missing console font and an invalid argument02:35
vertanarodd: Sorry, I do not.02:35

gnutronlinxuz3r: yes you can02:35
bthompsondoesn't show version...i want to make sure that it is the latest version..02:35
andypls1Jack_Sparrow: apt-get install nvidia-glx-new02:35

vertanasomething ^like02:36
linxuz3rgnutron: thanks02:36
gnutronbthompson: ah, no version info, go into synaptic it will show the version there.02:36
Jack_Sparrowandypls1, Go through the nvidia install tutorial again..02:36
tux9778ok thanks so i should bookmark the ones that people ased for it and see what happens vertana?02:36
Cpudan80lifenova: mine just goes black02:36
ubottuFor Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto02:36
linxuz3ris there a tar viewer that shows you the permission and owner of files and folders?02:36
vertanarodd: You could even do something such as downloading the source for Battle for Wesnoth or Super Maryo Chronicles and take a look for yourself :)02:36
Cpudan80lifenova: I assume it will give some error if its bad02:36
roddvertana: I've already done that...the point is that I can't find the most simple stuff, like what programming language suits best...LOL02:36
vertanarodd: That's the beauty of it all ^^02:36
__dean__linuxuz3r: emacs the tar file02:36
gnutronlinxuz3r: read any tar tutorial, plenty of tricks02:37
nickrudlinxuz3r, right click the file, open with archive manager02:37
andypls1Jack_Sparrow: what do you mean, i just installed it from adept manger?? i don't have any tutorial02:37
lifenovacpudan80: hmmm02:37
andypls1Jack_Sparrow:what did i do wrong?02:37
linxuz3rnickrud: but it does not show owner and permissions02:37
Jack_Sparrow!nvidia > andypls102:37
ubottuandypls1, please see my private message02:37
vertanarodd: Which language is best for what is always a hot topic. It's best to just go with what you already know. At least if you're just starting out. Learn to optimize large projects later :)02:37
roddvertana: I would totally agree if I knew something about programming for linux at all...LOL02:37
lifenovaCpudan80: I'm going to try restarting one more time, then googling around. if not, no biggie, just a minor aesthetics problem02:37
greenskyI recently upgraded to 4gb of ram and got a dvd burner, but my dvd burner wont work in ubuntu...  "wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/scd0" any idas?02:37
andypls1Jack_Sparrow: now i don't have the drivers installed?02:38
Cpudan80lifenova: well if you're missing the font -- its easy to get that back02:38
__dean__linuxuz3r: open it with emacs.02:38
Jack_Sparrowandypls1, Just looking to have you install them correctly so we can work from there02:38
roddvertana: I've been programming for windows for too long...LOL...and I'm afraid of using Java for large projects, if you know what I mean...02:38
__dean__linxuz3r: if you don't have emacs, do sudo apt-get install emacs02:38
themindnoob here... i need help getting wow to run in WINE02:38
vertanatux9778: Sorry, I missed your comment earlier. But yes or better, you could go to ubuntuforums.com and search. If nothing comes up post the question yourself. Generally the Ubuntu community if very helpful.02:39
__dean__linuxuz3r: It will list the files in the archive02:39
themindif anyone has done it plz msg me02:39
usserrodd: use C++/qt02:39
Jack_Sparrowthemind, /join #Winehq02:39
lifenovathemind, you might try asking at #winehq02:39
nickrudlinxuz3r, bummer, you're right02:39
__mikemrod, don't use C++/qt, Use C++/wxWidgets02:39
Dr_willisOk.. With the Gnome File manager.. if you are in a List View of a Folder.. How do you make a 'New Folder'  - that entry seems to not be there unless you are in ICON view... or i am totally missing it.02:39
__mikemrodd, ^02:39
tux9778ok vertana what happens if things dont work in x64 intrepid then what?02:39
roddusser: C++ ins an awesome language, but still not the best for programming and testing easily02:40
vertanarodd: Notice, how people have already chimed in on that... told you, hot topic. Whatever is comfortable amiko ^^02:40
guestguestnewdo u guys know of any pdf reader that has a good bookmarking feature that i can install from the repos?02:40
rodd__mikem same as  for usser, sire02:40
__dean__linxuz3r: http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/emacs/File-Archives.html02:40
vertanatux9778: What wouldn't work? Usually the solution is the same as 32-bit, but depends on what "breaks" :)02:40
roddvertana: indeed...I dodn't know that Linux was able to support these languages02:40
__mikemrodd, its just qt doesn't even use standard C++, qt has to employ its own special preprocessor02:40
vertanarodd: Sir, Linux supports EVERY language I've heard of.02:41
__mikemvertana, visual basic 6?02:41
tux9778ok thans vertana so 64 bit is up to date with the 32 bit version?02:41
vertanarodd: You just have to sarch the net for good documentation.02:41
roddvertana: That's awesome to here...I just need to get myself ready for programming, then...xD02:41
andypls1Jack_Sparrow: i clicked "enable" in KMenu->System Settings, go to the Advanced tab and click Restricted Drivers.  should i restart to see the changes?02:41
roddvertana: hear*02:41
vertanamikem: Ok, fine anything that MS is not attached to. Better? :p02:41
Jack_Sparrowandypls1, Sure02:42
__dean__Dr_willis: do right click, new folder02:42
__mikemvertana, :)02:42
Dr_willis__dean__,  its not there in the LIST view..  i will look again for the 10th time. :)02:42
greenskydo I need to do something differently to get a sata cd-burner to mount a drive vs. an ata drive?02:42
andypls1Jack_Sparrow: ok02:42
greenskyother than the /dev entry?02:42
linxuz3rthanks guys02:42
__dean__Dr_willis: File -> Create Folder02:43
__dean__Dr_willis: Or C-N02:43
vertanarodd: Ok, Java is cross platform, but C++ is fast (just harder to learn) and python is pretty decent (Once again, subjective everybody has their own opinion).02:43
__dean__Dr_willis: Ctrl-Shift-N02:43
Dr_willis__dean__,   the ISSUE seems to be the right click menu  has to Not be over an icon/item to get that menu..  so you do the right click in the blank spaces in Icon view.. but in List view.. theres no blank spaces.. Or so it seems02:43
vertanagrindking: I know I'm late, but nice Desktop btw :p02:44
roddvertana: Yeah, I'm a bit sick of Java for huge programs with lots of different classes in different source-codes....C++ is fast but needs either to be distributed on source code or recompiled for every system. and Python is almost the same as C++ in this point...02:44
roddvertana: I guess every language has their pros and cons....02:44
__dean__Dr_willis: You can do it in list view if you right click in a blank space02:45
__dean__Dr_willis: but there is only a blank space if there is not many files02:45
Dr_willis__dean__,  what blank space? i right click where it looks like its blank and it select the thing. :) heh  yea...02:45
vertanarodd: As is always the case. I'm partial to Python, but I like Source Code to look all pretty. Java, the only real hit that comes to mind is speed. And unless you plan on going commercial with your software, distributing source code is no big :)02:46
=== Guest5946 is now known as tonyyarusso
gnutronguestguestnew: pdf reader du jour= http://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions/   they have a .deb that works well.02:46
__dean__Dr_willis: If you go to a folder where there isn't enough files to fill the window, then there will be a blonk space athe bottom where you can right click and it will work02:46
guestguestnewgnutron: ok thanks:)02:46
Dr_willis__dean__,  :) sounds like  a  rough edge.  heh02:47
roddvertana: I don't plan on going commercial right now...but I have some source coding I created that I have a special love for it...xD....cant just leave it for everyone to see...xDDD02:47
__dean__Dr_willis: But otherwise, you can create a new folder from the File menu or using the keyboard shortcut.02:47
vertanarodd: I won't lie, that's horrible :p  But to each his own ^^02:47
andypls1Jack_Sparrow: after i did that, xserver couldn't even start, so i had to type "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg"02:48
AeonisNew prob w/ firefox.  It is opening larger than my res and java doesnt appear to be working.  I just upgraded to 8.1002:48
Aeonisany ideas?02:48
Dr_willis__dean__,  where in the file menu? let me look again there02:48
andypls1Jack_Sparrow:: so now the card is not "enabled", but it is "in use", whereas previously, when i clicked "enable" it was "not in use". what do i do now?02:49
__dean__Dr_willis: It is below New Tab and New Window02:49
roddvertana: I know it's totally horrible :p...even more in the open source community....But I'm still in love with how lovely a nice programming scheme can be02:49
__dean__Dr_willis: and above Create Document02:49
Rapture2k4what does this mean? "exportfs: /etc/exports [2]: Neither 'subtree_check' or 'no_subtree_check' specified for export '10.X.X.X/24:/media/WD250'"?02:49
Jack_Sparrowandypls1, nvidia-settings   tells you what02:50
greenskywhat does this mean? isofs_fill_super: bread failed, dev=sr0, iso_blknum=16, block=16  get that when trying to mount a dvd02:50
vertanarodd: That's ok. The most infuriating thing to ever happen to me was when I was a student in high school and made some 'decent' (Ok I thought it was awesome...), but the second the school found out I was going to put it on the internet as OSS, they claimed the source for their own! Evil... but since I was in 'student' status, they called it a school project and there she goes... It made me mad at the time, but I'm smarter these days :p02:51
vertanarodd: (Or I"d like to think so anyway) =p02:51
usserRapture2k4: its a warning not an error, thats fine it'll work without it02:51
Dr_willis__dean__,  yea. seems some of the entries in the FILE menu could amost go alongside similer items in the EDIT menu..    Ya move to trash in one.. but empty the trash in the other..02:51
AeonisWait...  java got disabled...but how?02:51
jinja-sheepvertana: What did you create? ;o02:52
Rapture2k4what's the warning mean?02:52
andypls1Jack_Sparrow: that's not helping, i am always getting the same message02:52
__dean__Dr:willis: using the terminal for file manipulation is better02:52
linxuz3ris 9.04 released already?02:52
jinja-sheep!jaunty | linxuz3r02:52
ubottulinxuz3r: Jaunty Jackalope is the code for Ubuntu 9.04, due April 2009 - Lots of breakage between now and April - Please join #ubuntu+1 for discussion and support.02:52
__dean__linkuz3r: you can upgrade to it but it is an alpha02:52
Dr_willis__dean__,  shame! turn in your gnome-merit badge! :P02:52
gnutronvertana: that should be under intellectual property, yours not theirs. sue them they'll back off02:52
ardchoillelinxuz3r: no, it isn't 9.04 yet (April 2009)02:52
roddvertana: Interesting thing02:53
__dean__linkuz3r: to upgrade: sed -i 's/intrepid/jaunty/g' /etc/apt/sources.list02:53
__dean__rlinxuz3r; but it is alpha so it might not be a good idea02:53

vertanajinja-sheep: Just some basic calculators, a nice interface, and a friend made them able to communicate through irc (when the school had its own irc channel). Therefore all the teachers could enter their grades into a website download the students grades as spreadsheets and then be able to enter into calcs to find totals, gpa's, etc. and the irc allowed to teachers to talk amongst each other in a passworded room. And it was in Java, so worked just as well02:54
vertanain Windows and Mac (which the school used).02:54

triplcHow to get "run" in Gnome? It is OK to get "run" dialog by pressing "Alt-F2". Now I do not use Gnome desktop environment (as my computer is slow) so I switch to a slimmer Window Manager.

gnutronandypls1: you have nothing to lose, change nvidia to nv if it doesnt work, change it back.03:02
=== stephen is now known as Guest39490
vertanamib_0hcvon6q: The latest? 8.10.  Go under Administration > Hardware Drivers and see if it tells you the Nvidia 177 driver is disabled. If it is, then try enabling it in that same menu.03:03
lifenova1linux_guy: extract the files into a folder, then tell me the name of that was created03:03
lstarneslinux_guy: there will most likely be a readme or install file contained in it03:03
gnutronandypls1: you should consult your restricted drivers menu also, i'm not up on that subject.03:04
andypls1i don't know....03:04
vertanamib_0hcvon6q: The reason I point you to the HArdware Drivers menu is because it should automatically download software that the drivers depend on.03:04
vertanamib_0hcvon6q: And it should trigger the right scripts (I.e. put everything in the right places and make the correct changes)03:05

shavinmy compaq 6710b laptop is just six months old and battery is troubling. It wont charge when plugged in. I took it out and plugged in again(did not start the OS yet) and the battery LED came on. I was able to charge it to almost 100%, then i started ubuntu and used it for a while and switched it off. Now again i started ubuntu in the morning the LED will not burn. I guess i might still be...03:06
shavin...able to charge it with laptop off. please help.03:06
linux_guylife:  I extracted it to a folder called vmware-server-distrib03:06

vertanamib_0hcvon6q: Ok After reboot, let me know how it works out for you. And if anyone asks you how to install Nvidia drivers in ubuntu it's always safe to tell them to do it through Hardware Drivers menu.03:07

vertanamib_0hcvon6q: As long as it said everything is 100% done. I think it should be ok to reboot. In case it doesn't come up (Prolly won't happen to you) in a console run sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf and under the driver section look for something like "driver" (won't be driver, but whatever is there) change to "nvidia" if that doesn't work then "nv" will.03:14

morghanphoenixHow do you change the permissions of a directory to only allow user 1000 & 1001 to access it, I know how you change the ownership but that doesn't seem to work with two users.

vertanamib_0hcvon6q: To be honest I think we confused the package manager with the stuff from synaptic and the Hardware Drivers. If you wanna be Extra extra safe I would reboot and then delete Everything nvidia off your computer. THEN use the hardware driver menu to do it.03:17

themind=_= i tried to install the GTK theme tar and its not showing up in the list03:28
erickarenanybody here work with RUby?03:28
ale1it worked in vista all day03:28
vertanaalel: An operating system itself cannot damage hardware to the point of being physically useless. This includes Windows as well.03:29
lifenova1themind: Try extracting the tar you downloaded03:29
ale1i thought so too03:29
gnutrontweak: oh i thought you had the binary install file03:29
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about acpi03:29
tweakWindows should count as a swear!03:29
ale1i have been building machines for 12 years03:29
benhsomebody who understands NetworkMangler around ?03:29
benhie, I used to have my eth0 in /etc/network/interfaces03:29
gnutrontweak: its all good then you dont need any help :)03:29
goexplodevertana: you sure about that? :-p i remember a certain kernel version that was doing some bad things to some types of gigabit ethernet cards recently03:29
ale1and it will not even see disks ...i can not even reinstall ANY OS03:29
benhso NM. basically kept away from it03:29
benhthis had the side effect that various things though I was offline etc...03:30
tweaki tried to download it from the site and save it in my /home/ directory but I clicked save and then the file wasn't there.. did that a few times.. still not there.. can I not write to /home/?03:30
vertanagoexplode: Ok, well not these days...03:30
benhnow I want to put it back under NM. controlk03:30
temppybenh: whats the problem?03:30
benhtemppy: well, I removed it from interfaces03:30
usserRapture: did u install that microsoft package? services for unix or whatnot?03:30
CoUrPsE|DeAdUsing System/prefecences/Sessions How can i tell applictions to get send to a different virtual desktop?03:30
usserRapture: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windows2000serv/reskit/prork/prci_unx_qnhb.mspx?mfr=true03:30
raz0o0xis there an easy way to just reinstall the man pages if they fail to work?03:30
benhtemppy: but NM still thinks it's "unmanaged"03:30
ale1I am talking about from the bios out ....no disk can be seen03:30
benhtemppy: and won't pick it up03:30
NarcishaHow can I close down gnome/x to access the normal terminal? anything I try lead me to a blinking underscore, and only ctrl+alt+f7 brings me back to gnome03:30
vertanaalel: make sure all cables are connected, etc.03:30
benhtemppy: is there some other remaining bit of setting somewhere I need to ditch ?03:30
gnutrontweak: first you should tell firefox to ask where to save files, its probably on your desktop by default03:31
tweaki have it set to ask me every time03:31
ale1i am thinking it is locked (mounted) with a perm flag  ...like what sometimes happens on USB drives03:31
rwwbenh: Did you restart the computer after doing that? I don't think it'll pick up that it's not in /etc/network/interfaces until you do that, or restart the networking and NetworkManager services.03:31
CoUrPsE|DeAdraz0o0x, You COULD try sudo apt-get --reinstall install man03:31
temppybenh: I dunno.  I thought that was what you had to do, remove it from interfaces03:31
andypls1GUYSSS :( :.(03:31
kristian_is there a terminal command that can show me what wireless networks my wireless reciever on my box picks up? aka the ssid, encryption, channel, etc, etc. thanks. :-)03:31
benhrww: I restarted /etc/init.d/networking & NM03:31
gnutrontweak: cant you save it to /home/user/ ?03:31
vertanaalel: If your CD Drive can't even be seen before starting up an OS it is 100% sure a hardware problem. Cables, Damaged Discs, or something otherwise physical.03:31
benhrww: I would have expected not to have to reboot the whole machine :-) man, it's not windows !03:31
benhbut I suppose I can try03:31
temppykristian_: iwscan maybe03:31
Dante123can you set a usb wireless dongle to ad-hoc mode and then bridge the ethernet internet connection so that it is shared with anyone else connecting with the usb wireless dongle?03:31
tweakgnutron: checking.........03:32
andypls1i am still getting the same problem, the sxerver could not start, and i had to run dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg03:32
benhlet me restart hal03:32
benhnah, same03:32
rwwbenh: Hrm. Probably something else you need to restart, then; I'm just not sure what. I happened to need to restart the computer for something else anyway, so I didn't really investigate.03:32
ussertemppy: try sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart03:32
n3m0kristian_ its iwlist <iface> scan03:32
vertanaandypls1: If you're running 8.10 it's dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg03:32
temppykristian_: no, its iwlist iface scanning03:32
gnutrontweak: open a terminal dont use file-manager03:32
ale1all cables are connected fine ...It first happened with the first drive.....then I ordered a new drive off of new egg ...and i used it all day in vista ...then booted into linux mint (ubuntu) ....now this (drive #2) is broken03:33
n3m0man you guys both got it wrong03:33
andypls1vertana i am on 7.1003:33
vertanaandypls1: Don't forget the -phigh switch. It will boot you into a sort of safe graphics mode.03:33
temppyale1: maybe its your mobo/psu03:33
andypls1vertana: if i update to 8.10 will my problems get fixed?03:33
tweakgnutron: It worked yes03:33
Raptureusser: I can't even see my Ubuntu box from Networks (in vista), is this normal behavior? also, I did mount the NFS share, but it times out when I try to access it03:33
ale1no cuz the drive is seen by both OS03:33
vertanaalel: In the VERY OFF chance that this happened due to software google your cd model and see if anyone has reports.03:33
benhbah, now NM sees eth1 twice :-)03:34
raz0o0xin which file can someone set the PATH variable to some default value each time the terminal is opened?03:34
benhallright, I'll reboot the box03:34
gnutrontweak: define 'worked'? its installed?03:34
benhI need to change something with the kernel anyway03:34
vertanaandypls1: That is always probable, but YMMV as always.03:34
tweakno I got the file lol03:34
themindso i bet u linux guyz r real sad abot steve jobz huh03:34
usserRapture: yes with nfs it will not show up in networks03:34
andypls1what is YMMV?03:34
ale1i have but this happened with TWO diff drives ...two diff manuf.03:34
Dante123can you set a usb wireless dongle to ad-hoc mode and then bridge the ethernet internet connection so that it is shared with anyone else connecting with the usb wireless dongle?03:34
usserRapture: try connecting by ip. name resolutions might not work properly03:34
vertanaandypls1: If you do upgrade, a clean install is best if you can lose files or back them up. YMMV means your mileage may very. Meaning it may be different for you then everybody else.03:35
gnutronandypls1: you got a nvidia glitch is all03:35
gnutronandypls1: have you booted a frsh xorg.conf?03:35
ale1the drive it self works ...opens ...closed ....LED on the front checks and looks at what disk is put in...its like LINUX is blocking the laser inside03:35
linux_guyhow do you start vmware?03:35
andypls1gnutron: i don't know what that is03:35
ale1and yes i am kind of a nub03:35
andypls1vertana: do you suggest a clean install or an upgrade?03:35
benhtemppy / rww : rebooting did it, damn ! looks like we are regressing down to win95 level :-)03:36
benhthanks anyway, bbl03:36
ari_stressmorning all :)03:36
gnutronandypls1: did you edit nvidia back in03:36
CoUrPsE|DeAdkristian_, could look in lshw -C Network03:36
The_Zlinux_guy: point your web browser to port 822203:36
goexplodeari_stress: good evening :-p03:36
vertanaandypls1: if you can help it do a clean install (since xorg changed a lot), but yes you did boot into a fresh xorg.conf.03:36
andypls1gnutron: yes i did03:36
lifenova1linux_guy: type vmware in a terminal :)03:36

ale1is there a linux version of Device man. that i can "uninstall" the optical drive then scan for hardware changes03:38
raz0o0xis there any other file except for .bashrc where one might set PATH when the terminal loads?03:38
vertanaandypls1: It's better to do a clean install, because you can start from square one and any changes beyond default will be wiped. In other words, anything changed by you or anyone else won't matter and you can just enable the driver via Hardware Drivers.03:38
kristian_temppy & n3m0 : couldn't get any of those commands to work. sorry about the slow response.03:39
vertanamib_9obidcle: What do you mean module?03:39
usserRapture: did u sudo exportfs -a, after modifying your /etc/exports? restart nfs server on ubuntu as well, sudo /etc/init.d/nfs-server restart03:39

usserale1: how do you figure your cdrom doesnt work?03:42
* CoUrPsE|DeAd waits for an answer.03:42
usserale1: whats the error?03:42
temppykristian_: now I remember.  But you were only given a single command.  We both gave the same command03:42
vertanaale1: That shouldn't be needed in Linux. It is NOT a driver issue if your BIOS cannot even see the drive.03:42

CoUrPsE|DeAdUm, it physcially broke?03:43
vertanaale1: I understand that, but seeing as it crosses both OS's and even the BIOS it is a physical problem to be sure.03:43
runderwosagredo: what's the error message?03:43
CoUrPsE|DeAdHow do you know its not if it doesnt work on ny03:43
CoUrPsE|DeAdHow do you know its not if it doesnt work on any OS?03:43
sagredorunderwo:Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost.03:44
albuntuale1: its a physical problem or your bios has a problem. have you tried your cdrom in another pc ?03:44
ale1the bios sees it and so does the drive itself...you can hear the Disks spool up and the LED on the front acts normal03:44
raz0o0xCoUrPsE|DeAd: typing env --unset=MANPATH does not work. When I echo $MANPATH it remains set to "/home/eyurtsev/root_518/man". Whenever I load a new terminal, that's the default value it gets.03:44
ale1yes ....03:44
Jack_Sparrowale1, Did you just put that drive in yourself03:44
ale1i used a USB to sata cable03:44
ale1yes i did ...both of the drives did the same thing...worked until i booted into linux03:45
Jack_Sparrowale1, that is the problem03:45
kristian_temppy : yeah. let my say it more correctly. i want terminal to print what ssid's it can find. (however i am already connected to my wireless and dont want to drop)03:45

CoUrPsE|DeAdraz0o0x, Looking at my env, there is no default variable for MANPATH.03:47

raz0o0xCoUrPsE|DeAd:  they are not working until I do "unset MANPATH" each time I load a new terminal. after I do that they work. It's just annoying and I thought there was a simple way to diagnose where this variable was being set03:53

vertanaandypls1 / gnutron: and the modules are loaded correct? and does it say the driver is activated in the hardware driver menu?03:55
mike1980ale1: it is a DVD-R03:55
kristian_temppy : alright, thanks. :-) i will look into it. i guess it will only give one wireless network, if your connected to one, and maybe several if your not connected to any. just guessing.03:55
rdw200169ale1: if it's a driver issue, you should google the brand name with 'ubuntu' and see if someone has a fix03:55
andypls1vertana: yes now it does say that03:55
andypls1but the enable box is not clicked03:55

gnutronandypls1: i don't wanna break your system03:59
ale1after i reboot  ?04:00
rdw200169themind: because that is known to cause problems, really, it's the only problem, most hardware related configurations should be done in Config.wtf for WoW04:00
Flannelale1: you have to run `sudo mount -a` (or reboot, sure)04:00
rdw200169themind: that, and make sure you run winecfg to make sure sound works there first04:00
Killeroidttmrichter: sorry it took me to respond, i was making a sandwich whilst watching the screen. what error do you get when trying to ope n a tar.lzma file with file-roller04:00
rdw200169themind: if sound works in winecfg, it will work w/all wine apps04:00

kristian_i have installed openssh-server on my ubuntu machine. i can access my machine via ssh/sftp over wlan using my account created on install. is it possible to setup a a sftp (not ssh) that can access a certain dir and all lower dir and download content, but not delete or add content? as a single terminal command?04:00
rdw200169themind: b/c wine is going to trick the application anyway into thinking it's using direct sound04:00
ttmrichterKilleroid: it just plain doesn't recognize the file type.04:00
vertanaandypls1: Neither one of us do, but I have a feeling it's a conflict of packages... I have nothing to back that up except my NVIDIA driver breaking many times back in the day. my advice is to start from square one just so we know it's nothing you did or tried (not to insult you, it's just I broke my own drivers MANY times doing same thing)04:01
andypls1gnutron is there anything else i should do?04:01
ttmrichterKilleroid: I open up a directory with several .lzma and .tar.lzma files.  They're not flagged as archive file types.  Right-clicking on them doesn't give file-roller as an option to open them.04:01
linux_guyhow can i login to vmware?  it says i dont have permissions?04:02
andypls1vertana that's means install a fress distro?04:02
themindhow do I make hidden folders visible04:02
vertanaandypls1: in a terminal run sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf and change under driver "nvidia" (or whichever driver you're running) to "nv" and under synaptic search nvidia and uninstall everything you see marked and afterwards reboot. This will start us from square one.04:02
Killeroidttmrichter: ah, what version of ubuntu are you using? i know for a fact that there was a problem with file-roller recognzing .lzma files but ti was fixed in ubuntu 8.10(intrepid)04:03
vertanaandypls1: This is the only thing I can think of before a fresh install (trying to avoid that)04:03
andypls1vertana: is the xserver going to start?04:03
jedi06how do you check ip stuff?04:03
vertanaandypls1: Yes, that's why I told you to change that word in paranthesis to "nv". It will load that driver instead of the one in question.04:03
rdw200169themind: ls -a04:03
goexplode!ifconfig | jedi0604:04
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about ifconfig04:04
vertanaThat way when you boot it loads up the safe "nv" driver. And after you change that, delete everything nvidia.04:04
ttmrichterKilleroid: 8.04.  8.10 breaks my video card, so upgrading is not an option.  (This is an increasing problem with Ubuntu: later versions break things that worked fine in earlier versions.)  Is there a backport of an unbroken file-roller for 8.04 perhaps?04:04
andypls1vertana:  synaptic search nvidia <- where do i do that? i mean... how?04:04
rdw200169ttmrichter: have you tried restoring your old xorg.conf file?04:04
goexplodejedi06: ifconfig -a ...depends on what you're looking fod04:05

quiksilverhow do i update my version of python?04:06
ttmrichterrdw200169: The issue isn't resolution.  The issue is that it doubles up the columns with one column of coloured pixels, one column of black.04:06
rwwkattollikisd: /join #openoffice.org04:06
vertanagnutron: I'm starting us from square one. I have him defaulting to nv driver and deleting everything nvidia. afterwards we will reboot and try enabling via hardware driver menu04:06
rdw200169ttmrichter: wow, that's pretty rough04:06
ttmrichterrdw200169: It is the driver that is broken, not the xorg.conf.  Basically SiS support is broken completely in 8.10 -- there's at least a dozen (ignored) bug reports on it already.04:06
rdw200169ttmrichter: in 8.10, there's no xorg.conf file?04:06
gnutronvertana: good idea04:06

rdw200169quicksilver_: hm, i thought they went 2.6 in 8.10, i was wrong, i wonder if there is a backport from jaunty...04:08

vertanagnutron: Will adept provide the search function we need to find nvidia packages?04:09
andypls1verana: sudo: synaptic: command not found04:09
gnutronvertana: ive never used adept04:09
kattollikisdsomeone here can tell me the channel for Open Offices pleases? And thank you...04:09

vertanaandypls1: Get rid of all of it. (just to be safe)04:11
Raptureusser: i booted my laptop into ubuntu (thumb drive) and I was able to mount the NFS share and do an ls, but once I mounted Vista to it, it locked the drive...04:12

Killeroidttmrichter: well, i'm gla at least we got one of your problems fixed, i hope your video card driver problems gets fixed04:49
vertanagnutron: What are you advising? Are we on different pages here?04:49
vertanagnutron: I was in the middle of a distro-upgrade...04:50
dmizerjedi06: trust me, your host and virtual guest are on a shared subnet.04:50
Rapture2k4guess i'm gonna have to rip this HD out of its case and slap it on an IDE port04:50
ttmrichterKilleroid: the video card problem will never be fixed.  Much like the audio card problem I've had (SiS again) hasn't been fixed since Dapper Drake.  8.04 is the last version of Ubuntu I'll be able to use on this computer.04:50
zivjoin #ubuntu-hk04:50

gnutronvertana: does that command look right?04:51
LakesProseOk I know this is like talking about morality in #lawyer but I need some help: I forgot my root/sudo passwd. When I boot into recovery mode, the system still asks for the password as in "Enter password to perform maintenance"04:51
dmizerjedi06: if your guest and host did not have a shared subnet, then the guest would be unable to access the internet.04:51
LakesProsewhat else can I do ?04:51
vertanagnutron: Ah, I was telling him to do it via sources.list.  Ok, we're on same page just confusing each other lol.04:51

ttmrichterKilleroid: they "noticed" the bug on the audio card by marking it fixed a half-dozen times before I finally gave up in disgust.  The bug with the video card is mentioned a dozen different ways now on launchpad and isn't even marked as accepted yet -- apparently having many people say "yes, I'm seeing problems with SiS video" isn't proof enough that there's actually a problem.04:52
rdw200169\msg quiksilver dangit, i closed the window, you still there?04:53
vertanaandypls1:  sudo apt-get dist-upgrade04:53
ttmrichterI'm just basically sticking with 8.04 until it doesn't do the job anymore and then switching to whichever distro is more responsive thereafter.04:53
zivnot one here04:53
vertanagnutron: That will get the job done.04:53
dmizerjedi06: you can still transfer files between your guest and host. if you need them to be on the same subnet, you'll need to configure virtualbox for bridged networking.04:53
andypls1vertana: ok04:53
tweakanyone good with graphics problems?04:53
zivdoes any one can tell me   what difference between dist-upgrade and upgrade?04:54
Killeroidttmrichter: do you have a link for the video car bug on bugzilla04:54
gnutronandypls1: i'm looking at 8.04 to 8.10 upgrade for kde, it says type that command, so go ahead.04:54
Flannelziv: dist-upgrade will bring in new dependencies, upgrade won't.04:54
tweakmy videocard is bugzilla lol04:54
vertanaandypls1: Type that in a terminal and it should upgrade you to 8.10. It will take a while though and you'll have to restart afterwards. I have cable internet and it took about an hour and 20 minutes.04:54
bullgard4ziv: dist-upgrade is via the Internet. upgrade is via a CD locally.04:54
ttmrichterKilleroid: Hang on.  Let me look again.  (And it was launchpad I was searching, not bugzilla.  What's bugzilla?)04:54
andypls1vertana: maybe i should do it when i have more time?04:55
Flannelziv: Most of the time, you'll only experience this with kernel versions.  Since the kernel packages will change names (linux-image-version1 to linux-image-version2) with just "upgrade" your metapackages will be held back, because it won't automatically install -version2, dist-upgrade will.04:55
vertanagnutron: apt-get is desktop independent which is why I said that one. your command would work too but without the devel option.04:55
gnutronandypls1: it will probably prompt you a few times, one may say delete obsolete packages, could be triple digits, go ahead and do it.04:55
vertanaandypls1: It's fine, you can just let it run :)04:55
zivoh  i  used  upgrade last second...04:55
linux_guyinstalled vmware successfully (thanks you guys) and i would like to install my guest OS which is an ISO file on the desktop ATM.... how can i mount the ISO rather than burn it?04:55
Killeroidttmrichter: dammit, i really suck a multitasking. yes, i meant launchpad,  bugzilla is a bug tracker tool a  lot of otehr projects use04:55
ttmrichterKilleroid: Here is one of many: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-sis/+bug/29129404:56

andypls1thanks for ALL the help04:56
gnutronvertana: i dont know why nor never seen the -devel option for normal dist-upgrades before04:56

gnutrontweak: i dont think theres much you can do, googleearth is really intensive04:57
ttmrichterKilleroid: Ooh!  Change since I last checked: they finally acknowledged it as "confirmed".  They haven't decided if a show-stopper video bug is important or not, though....04:57

linux_guyanybody know vmware?04:58
gnutronvertana: the update notes dont say thats the recommended way for desktops.... hrm.04:58
dmizerlinux_guy, all you have to do is add the iso file to the guest settings after you create the initial disk.04:58
vertanatweak: With just a built in card google earth will be SLOW (Which I assume is your problem?), but that is OS independent. Just need a better card :)04:58
usserRapture2k4: does nfs client for windows work with that other directory that u exported?04:58

linux_guydmizer:  i created a guest os in vmware04:59
Rapture2k4usser: give me just a second04:59
ttmrichterKilleroid: I'm not exactly holding my breath on this.  ;)  I'm investigating Slackware as an alternative instead.  (They don't break my video card.:D)04:59
gnutrontweak: its the program not your machine05:00
dmizerlinux_guy: then click on the settings for cdrom and tell it to use the iso instead of the actual disk.05:00
vertanatweak: Once again still graphics card. It's not driver because intel generally speaking has very good drivers for their products. I'm inclined to say that it's the low VRAM on that graphics chip.05:00
gnutronvertana: oh i see, no it says 8.04 to 8.1005:00
tweakcrdlb : how do I disable/enable  it?05:00
Rapture2k4usser: Yep, works just fine05:00

gnutrontorrancew:  lspci   does it show up06:39
torrancewgnutron: sure does06:39
vertanaDezine: The best thing to do would be complete reinstall (So that all the apps are 64-bit also), but you can also just get the 64-bit kernel. (But the kernel way won't be fastest as the apps are still only 32-bit).06:39

Madpilotgompa, the chance to test an alpha release and keep all the bits if/when it breaks?06:40

gnutrontorrancew: asoundconf list  shows nothing!?06:40
arvind_khadribinskipy2u,  i do, but take this to #ubuntu-offtopic06:40

torrancewreboot hasn't solved anything06:41
vertanaDezine: That way is a LOT of unnecessary work. Theoretically it could work, but reinstalling is much easier.06:41
shearok, very quick question. Does pretty much everything work on amd64 now? I'm talking flash, win32 codecs, etc. I remember the last time I tried it, I had to spend hours trying (and failing) to get some basic stuff to work.06:41
Madpilotgompa, no idea, actually06:41

DezineI don't have a cd drive or usb so it's the only way.. works well anyway06:42
arvind_khadrigompa, the kernel changed from 8.04 to 8.1006:42
vertanapowner: The 9.04 stats about the 20 second bootup you've heard of is due to increased r/w speeds from ext4 (as opposed to ext3 in use now).06:42

bamhm182alright, cool, I was just wondering if I was actually posting because nobody was acknowledging me06:43
vertanapowner: To be honest, if all you're looking for is a way to boot faster, wait until 9.04 is in beta at least so not as much stuff breaks. (or now if you like to submit bug reports and such)06:43
Robert_Surcoufbamhm182: and your question/problem is ?06:43

arvind_khadrigompa, oh ... no idea06:45
gnutronvertana: i'll keep that in mind, thanks.06:45
torrancewgnutron: and your 64 bit?06:45
gompaarvind_khadri ahw to baad06:45
Robert_Surcoufbamhm182: I would assume it because Linux send a message to shut it down, a quick but not nice things to do would be to avoid to shutdown the bluetooth in rc.d06:45
pownerto see if an upstream fix has made it down already06:45
vertanapowner: Well, I'm not sure if Alpha2 is out yet, but that's the one with ext4 included in it.06:45
ThreetimesQubits: GetDataBack is a windows app?06:46
tweakhey when I try to install a gtk theme it says that it will not look proper because the theme "Default" is not installed06:46
torrancewwhat's even stranger is that all the sound modules for the kernel are loaded, and i believe they are the correct modules06:46
gnutrontorrancew: the 64 bit is still 8.04 hardy and java/flash ff-64 work great with sound, dvd et al06:46
vertanatorrancew: I'm on 8.10 (distro upgraded from 8.04) and I'm on 64 bit and all my applications work flawlessly, but as always YMMV depending on all the extra programs you have installed.06:46
bamhm182what would that do?06:46
bamhm182just have my keyboard on 24/7?06:46
maxxisttorrancew you are having issues with 64bit 8.10?06:46
torrancewmaxxist: mainly this sound problem, other than that i've overcome everything else06:47
torrancewi've just noticed that it requires many restarts to get installs to "take", if you will06:47
maxxisttorrancew  what is the sound problem?  what sound chipset are you using?06:47
gompavertana powner  apha 2 is out06:47
Robert_Surcouftorrancew: you tried to fixed it with alsamixer ?06:47
vertanagompa: Thank you, very much. There ya go powner. Ext4 at your fingertips ^^06:47
torrancewRobert_Surcouf: there is no device to configure anymore06:48
pownertx guys =)06:48
powneror girls06:48
vertanatorrancew: I had to restart twice. Once after upgrade. Once after Nvidia drivers. That was it ^^06:48
torrancewmaxxist: Realtek integrated - it was working fine until i upgraded video drivers06:48
torrancewvertana: that makes me sad.06:48
jedi06gnutron i installed dropbear still can't get it06:48
maxxisttorrancew  using pulseaudio or alsa?06:49
torrancewdropbox wouldn't initialize without one, and i believe that on my 32 bit machine it picked up fine06:49
vertanatorrancew: If you don't use proprietary drivers then it's only one restart, due to kernel upgrade.06:49
torrancewmaxxist: tried both06:49
torrancewvertana: yeah, the nvidia proprietary driver is (i believe) what broke my sound06:49
QubitsThere is informations about how to restore grub from a livecd here :06:49
QubitsI also found something showing how to install grub frmo the grub command line06:49
vertanatorrancew: There is no way a video driver broke your sound. What makes you think that?06:49
gnutronjedi06: dropbear?  you need sshd running on ubuntu and puTTy on windows. dropbear im not familiar with.06:50
maxxisttorrancew  you did just a video driver upgrade and it went away?06:50
Qubitsroot (hd0,1)06:50
=== binarymutt_ is now known as binarymutt
torrancewmaxxist: yes06:50
Qubitssetup (hd0)06:50
QubitsThat did it I think FYI06:50
jedi06dropbear is a lightweight SSH2 server06:50
QubitsPlease try to actually help people with grub problems now06:50
vertanatorrancew: Interesting... And it stayed that way even after x/computer restarted?06:50
torrancewthe volume control, when clicked, gives this error: "No volume control GStreamer plugins and/or devices found."06:50
rdw200169gnutron: wow, last time i saw dropbear was on openwert06:50
jedi06how do i install sshd then gnutron?06:50
torrancewit worked until the restart06:50
rdw200169gnutron: openwrt06:50
torrancewbut all the modules are loaded06:50
gnutronjedi06: on the ubuntu box? is it running?06:50
vertanajedi06: sudo aptitude install opensshd (I believe)06:51
torrancewit just doesn't see my card anymore. in certain places06:51
maxxisttorrancew  can you open sound in preferences?06:51
jedi06yes on ubuntu06:51
vertanatorrancew: Make sure all those sound tests work.06:51
torrancewthey freeze the machine06:51
gnutronjedi06: openssh-server is the package im pretty sure but we can try dropbear if your ready06:51
torrancewmaxxist: yes06:51
jedi06ok i have both now06:52
maxxisttorrancew  is there any sound chips listed in there?06:52
gnutronjedi06: how many files do you wanna transfer to the buntu box06:52
vertanatorrancew: Do they freeze up even when you select other options? Try pulseaudio or alsa (two most likely to work).06:52
jedi06actually i want to save some to windows06:52
Robert_Surcouftorrancew: aplay -ILv will give you the configuration you could post also you can dmesg | grep -i alsa and dmesg | grep -i snd06:53
torrancewvertana: tried alsa, switched to pulseaudio, but didn't run the tests. still nothing though06:53
gnutronjedi06: open a dos box06:53
torrancewmaxxist: no06:53
torrancewRobert_Surcouf: aplay returns absolutely nothing06:53
gnutronjedi06: type pscp  does it show help info?06:53
torrancewnor does dmesg | grep -i alsa06:54
jedi06nope i have putty and winscp06:54
maxxisttorrancew what are the chances you want to do a reinstall?  unless someone knows how to do an audio hardware reconfigure.....06:54
Guest62899ubuntu really doesnt want to install on my computer. Does anyone know of any other linux variations that support dual monitors?06:54
torrancewmaxxist: i'm not keen on it, esp. given i'm 99% certain that when i re-upgrade my video drivers, this will happen all over again06:54
maxxisttorrancew  i dont see how a video driver would do this...06:54
gnutronjedi06: the putty package should include pscp.exe, you can grab it in seconds, want the url?06:55
mrpocketsis there no way to send CTRL+ALT+DEL in VNC through terminal server ?06:55
torrancewmaxxist: it doesn't make sense to me either, but i've found that others have had the same problem, just haven't found a solution that works fo rme06:55
jedi06ok gnutron sure06:55
Robert_Surcouftorrancew: you don't see it in the lscpi as well ?06:55
torrancewmaxxist: also, given that this is my first go-round with a 64 bit, i was very careful, and restarted after nearly every upgrade06:56
Robert_Surcouftorrancew: lspci06:56
jedi06gnutron but i already have putty.exe06:56
gnutronjedi06: sec06:56
maxxisttorrancew  i would honestly think a reinstall would be a great idea.  if you can reproduce the issue I would say it would be a bug to be submitted.06:56
torrancewRobert_Surcouf: lspci | grep -i snd returns nothing06:56
gnutronjedi06: that just opens a session06:56
Robert_Surcouftorrancew: you have a nvidia as sound and graphic card ?06:56
torrancewmaxxist: if it is the driver, it's a bug for nvidia06:56
jedi06well i got winscp probably the same thing06:56
torrancewRobert_Surcouf: nVidia nForce chipset on mobo (integrated sound), and nVidia geForce 8 card06:57
maxxisttorrancew  reboot after every upgrade is excessive.  you should really only need to when a kernel gets upgraded.  but i just installed 64 bit.  and did an nvidia driver install 180.  no probs here06:57
gnutronjedi06: download pscp.exe and put it in your path \windows will do. http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html06:57
torrancewmaxxist: where can i get 180? the distro only recognized up to 17306:58
Robert_Surcouftorrancew: I do too on a hpslim box what is the version of your graphic driver ?06:58
NarcishaHow can I check which graphics drivers I'm using? I *think* I managed to roll back the updates, just need to be sure06:58
Robert_Surcouftorrancew: dmesg | grep NVRM06:58
torrancewRobert_Surcouf: if i do a straight lspci, i can dig through and find it06:58
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about ssid06:58
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about SSID06:58
maxxisttorrancew and my system is integrated audio also.  my nvidia card is a 9600gt.  I found 180 in synaptic...06:58
torrancewRobert_Surcouf: nVidia proprietary 17306:59

ItaciousCan someone please direct me in how to set up internet connection sharing in (x)ubuntu using Firestarter? I want to have a computer (namely and Xbox 360) connect through eth0 (ethernet) to the internet via eth1 (wifi). Any ideas? Thanks.06:59
maxxisttorrancew   do a search for nvidia in synaptic.  there should be an 180 driver in there...07:00
Itacious*name an07:00
Itacious**namely an Xbox 36007:00
Melikhow can i see hidden folders in bash?07:00
Robert_Surcouftorrancew: as maxxist pointed out the last one on synaptic is 180 on the nvidia website they have the 180.22 both of them works well07:00

FirefisheI'm using ubuntu 8.10 on an Asus G50v-X1 laptop.  Have a dvd burner that I can't access.  When I put a dvd movie in the drive, it initially will show it as being mounted and available.  After a while, though--usually after the first attempt at accessing it through whatever file manager I'm using (doesn't matter which), the drive locks up and the system stops recognizing it.07:02
jedi06ok gnutron07:02
MHz128Hello! Is there a modifiable setting that defines the mouse over gnome-panel-menu delay?07:02
maxxisttorrancew I would say try the 180 nvidia driver.  if that doesnt work.  a reinstall would be best.  if you can reproduce the problem it would be a good bug report to submit.07:02
torrancewmaxxist: which package(s) should i use?07:02
gnutronjedi06: then pscp ubuntu@ubuntu:foo.txt .   smash enter  [dont forget the dot or colon07:03

jedi06do i need to start the ssh deamon on ubuntu?07:03
torrancewRobert_Surcouf: what would that be?07:04
gnutronjedi06: sudo /etc/init.d/ssh start07:04
Robert_Surcouftorrancew: adding a line in /etc/modprobe.d/asla-base adding options snd-hda-intel probe_mask=107:04
maxxisttorrancew  nvidia-glx-180 should be the one.07:04
Robert_Surcouftorrancew: did you tried it ?07:04
torrancewmaxxist thanks07:04
maxxisttorrancew  nvidia-glx-180 should be the one.    should autoremove the old one.07:04
torrancewRobert_Surcouf: not yet07:04
maxxisttorrancew   you may have to restart after that one though.07:05
gnutronjedi06: then pscp ubuntu@192.168.1.x:foo.txt .   smash enter  use the ip address unless you hosts file has ubuntu in it07:05

gnutronjedi06: where 'x' is the last address bit07:05

torrancewRobert_Surcouf: i do, when you found it, did you find anything about what caused it?07:13
gnutronjedi06: well, if ubuntu listens on port 22 to the world, then use its i-net address07:13

gompadid you select the could tou try sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop07:14
gnutronjedi06: but yeah you'd need to forwrd the traffic on 22 to that box07:14

gnutronjedi06: are you connected to the same router?07:16

Some_uxSurely there must be a way to download the latest update of a single package using the commandline ?07:17
jedi06yes they are on the same machine07:17
jedi06but the vbox network is private and is invisible to the host07:17
gnutronjedi06: can you ping the remote box07:17
vertanaSome_ux: I just told you how. dpkg force install. You just need to know the package name. dpkg and aptitude are command line programs.07:17
Robert_Surcouftorrancew: flash is proprietary it is bad but widely used until now, so you are at the mercy of their willing07:17

gompahmpf my only bet is booting ubuntu on vmware :/07:22
torrancewwell, thanks all, and goodnight07:22
vertanaSome_ux: When it says newer packages it is according to the database, so unless you installed via source code compiling it is guaranteed to be newer.07:22
Some_uxvertana: It does not say that there is a newer version, It is implied, since the packages is listed in the Hardy-update section07:23
Robert_Surcoufvertana: this kind of proprietary will die and maybe sooner that one would believe, imagine that somebody would have said you know what HTML is a proprietary language you can use it only with mosaic, you might laugh now but at the end of the 80's a university copyrighted Gopher a widely used means to search the information do you use often gopher ?07:23
maxxistRobert_Surcouf  I was just gonna ask him if he was using the 64 bit flash 10.  its pretty much flawless on my system.07:23
vertanaSome_ux: Not necessarily, it may just be a bump in the version but not in the source code.07:23
Robert_Surcoufmaxxist: can you use a 32bits flash ? on 64 ?07:24
Some_uxvertana: it is listed as a critical security flaw update07:24
vertanaSome_ux: I advise you install security updates, but that's just me...07:24
maxxistRobert_Surcouf  yeah you can use the nspluginwrapper thingy...  it installs when you install ubuntu-restricted-extras07:24
Robert_Surcoufmaxxist: ouch I see well I use the proprietary one and I agree with you it works well07:25
maxxistRobert_Surcouf  but i find the new adobe 64 bit flash is just fine.07:25
vertanaRobert_Surcouf: While yes, it is propietary; the fact of the matter is, it's used widely and available on all OS's. For the general public to move away, it would require a utility just as easy to use and fast. The general public doesn't care if it's open or closed.07:25
vertanaRobert_Surcouf: Think about Windows... it has to "just work"(TM). :p07:26
Robert_Surcoufvertana: because it is closed it will die, I know seems hard to believe but it will, if somebody would have said in 1989 gopher will die in 10 years everybody would have laugh at it07:26

maxxistRobert_Surcouf  usually i love the ubuntu-restricted-extras meta package.  but I am finding it needs some love on 64 bit now.  It also installs 32 bit libraries so you can run 32 bit apps on 64bit kernel.  it works well.  but i didnt want that.   but i did want all the codecs and such,  so i had to do manual install on those.07:27
kingsleyWhat's your favorite audio player?07:27
maxxistkingsley Audacious07:27
Robert_Surcoufmaxxist: yes you might loose some performance using 32 bits code, I haven't looked in details but the 64 applications seems to me a little bit faster07:28
vertanaRobert_Surcouf: That's true of anything. Evolve as the times and people evolve or die. So either, Flash will have to be open source (eventually) or Linux support will have to evolve greatly. Or something open source and multiplatform will outseat it as a de facto 'net video player.07:28

vertanakingsley: I haven't used it in a long time, but I used the xine engine it came with and for audio output Alsa, suited me just fine.07:33
jedi06gnutron forget i'll just email them to myself it is possible to port forward but docs aren't that good07:33
kingsleyvertana: FWIW, mine warns me that xine-engine doesn't support mp3, which is what I need.07:34
gnutronmaxxist: i have pulseaudio uninstalled and use vlc, amarok, audacious everything all works, two sources at once using esound and alsa on intrepid07:34
maxxistgnutron good to know.  I had pulse installed on my hardy install.  and when I tried to install audacious it wanted to install pulse again...  so i just assumed.07:35
gnutronjedi06: yeah, tarball them and mail.  separate subnets complicate things07:35
Some_uxThe thing is, I labored very hard to config Hardy, and i am now mortified by the prospect of a command which will update/upgrade indiscriminately. I only want very specific updates.07:35
maxxistgnutron i meant pulse was uninstalled.07:35
gnutronmaxxist: intrepid whacked my sound totally, thats how i fixed it.07:35
vertanakingsley: You'll need to install restricted codecs. That's all. I think the package is xine-extras or alternatively ubuntu-restricted-extras will download all restricted stuff you'll most likely need.07:36
maxxistgnutron  pulse buggared my hardy and wine install.  when i removed it everything was glorious.07:36
gnutronmaxxist: pulse needs a defibrillater07:37
gnutronmaxxist: joke07:37
maxxistgnutron lol.  seems to be working for me right now.  hehe.07:37
vertanakingsley: libxine1-ffmpeg I think is your package. (Just looked at a list real quick.)07:37
gnutronmaxxist: i'll try it again when they fix something or other07:38
Bikeguyi have no sound, under preferences:sound when i click test on any of the buttons i get this message : audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink: Failed to connect: Connection refused07:38
vertanaBikeguy: Try moving your options from auto to pulse or alsa or oss (whichever will work for you)07:39
vertanaThat's the only thing that really bothers me personally about Linux. I can live with a lot of stuff... but 3 audio systems on almost every install crossing all distros? Come on *offtopic I know, sorry*07:40
Bikeguyvertana: none of them are outputting sound07:40
vertanaBikeguy: Do you know what sound card you have?07:40
Bikeguyvertana: i have an onboard sound card that came on my evga 780i board, intel07:41
vertanaBikeguy: It's intel and still not working? Hm... google your soundcard and make sure it's not a general linux or hardware problem (Should always be the first thing you try)07:42
Bikeguyvertana: sounds good, i'm new to linux, still trying to figure out the ropes07:42
rohilHi Guys..is there a way I could create a common kinda folder in both windows and Linux partitions ? So, that I don't have to maintain two copies ... thanks07:43
vertanaBikeguy: I understand. Ubuntu community is really good for support. After google try ubuntuforums.com and always search forums before possibly making a duplicate thread. But if you ask in here or on forums people will really try to help you.07:43
Boohbahrohil: you could mount your ntfs partition in linux07:43
rohilB.oohbah, I did that but there is a wamp folder in windows and a xampp one in Linux. Both need their folder (namely www and htdocs) where the files are put. I want same files in both these installations. So, incase if I ever have to access them from Windows, I can do so07:45
Bikeguyvertana: so, nothing came up as far as my board goes, there aren't any sound issues reported. sound has been working, but there have been a few odd things going on, for one mplayer takes a really long time to boot up07:45
=== nancy is now known as eeble
vertanaBikeguy: This makes me think that it MIGHT be hardware problem??  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=67488207:46
vertanaBikeguy: Unless I'm mistaken, is that not the same board?07:46
Bikeguyvertana: it is, i just read that thread07:46
=== Dompie is now known as Do-m-pie
eebleHi, in evolution i have a gmail imap account set up, is there any way to make that show up first in the folder list?07:46
vertanaBikeguy: Weird... Does it work in another OS? Is this a fresh install or did it "just stop working"?07:46
Bikeguyit works in windows, it is a relatively new install, but sound just stopped working today07:47
Bikeguyvertana: i was having mplayer issues, and system halt issues from the start though07:47
humadoes 8.10 live cd support ntfs?07:47
YankDownUnderhuma, Yes.07:48
Boohbahrohil: so what is the problem?07:48
humaYankDownUnder, ok. thanks. want to recover one broken windows box.07:48
vertanaIf anybody knows more about ALSA and soundsystems could you please help bikeguy? I don't know too much about those.07:48
YankDownUnderhuma, ntfs-3g is a read/write driver07:49
rohilSuppose there is an index.php file in C:/wamp/www/ and I want my xampp to read it in linux. So, I will have to create a copy of it in my lampp folder in linux.07:49
rohilso there are two copies of same file07:49
rockyrockguys, how to see what ports are open in a wireless network?? Torrent isn't avaialbe in my university, all ports are closed. How can i see what ports are open so  i can use them?Is there any tool in Ubuntu to do that?07:49
Bikeguyvertana: thanks, i appreciate it. I have a good buddy who had some suspicions that pulseaudio might be causing some issues07:49
Some_uxOk, so apparently synaptic can install/upgrade a single package. and since synaptic is only a gui interface for apt-get, I suppose there is a way to upgrade only a single package. The problem is how ?07:50
vertanaBikeguy: That did it to me on this at first. I had to switch from OSS to ALSA so it could be piped through Pulseaudio... but Linux sound systems are my Achilles's Heel.. never could get them. Sorry, I couldn't be of much help.07:50
MckitrickHi guys07:50
maxxistrockyrock network tools under admin would be a good place to start...07:50
Bikeguyvertana: no, you've been of help, at least we might be narrowing down the problem07:51
MckitrickAnyone have any idea why my drive is mounting read only?  I've rebooted and it's done an fsck but it's still coming up read only.07:51
Melikwhat is a good lightweight window manager that you guys would recommend??07:51
vertanaBikeguy: If I can think of anything I'll let you know ^^07:51
Meliki'm getting sick of gnome's bloatware.07:51
Bikeguyvertana: k thanks07:51
maxxistMelik Fluxbox07:51
rockyrockmaxxist: can you please tell me what should i put in the "Network address" field in the Port Scan tap in Network tools?07:52
YankDownUnderMckitrick, Have you tried to modify the /etc/fstab in relation to the drive?07:53
Bikeguyvertana: i'm going to try and do a full restart, see if that does the trick07:53
maxxistrockyrock  i have no idea man.  I just knew network tools has a port scanner and such...07:53
* Panarchy says Hi07:53
Robert_Surcoufrockyrock: are you on your own network or somewhere else ?07:53
ThreetimesHi, I accidently formstted a usb-drive, how do I get my information back?07:54
ThreetimesI did cat /dev/sdb > sdb07:54

FloodBot1Threetimes: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.07:54
gnutronrockyrock left07:54
maxxistRobert_Surcouf wouldnt he need to port scan his own ip from outside the universtiy network?07:54
ThreetimesIt was a fat32 drive07:55
Robert_Surcoufmaxxist: yeah, without asking the administrator, and even they will not open a port just like that but yes and nmap on the ip of the university would have been a good start but without propr authorization ...07:55
Bikeguyvertana: yeah....sound works now....this is so odd07:55
ThreetimesFloodBot1: sorry (why do I talk to a bot)07:56
Some_uxHmm, If i understand apt-get correctly, To get a package which has updates all you need to do is>  sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install <package-name> ?07:56
vertanaBikeguy: Could be any number of things if a restart fixed it. Coulda been a program that didn't agree with your audio.. lotsa stuff : /07:56
* Panarchy says Hi07:57
* YankDownUnder thinks that talking to bots is good for one's mental instability07:57
* Threetimes says hi too :p07:57
PanarchyDoes anyone know which command properly list all installed software?07:57
Bikeguyvertana: grrr, i hate sound issues07:57
PanarchyI know of dpkg -l07:57
PanarchyAre there others?07:57

MckitrickIs anyone here familiar with 3ware raid controllers?07:58
* Threetimes questions himself what "mental instability" should mean...07:58

Flannel!lamp | quiksilver08:00
ubottuquiksilver: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)08:00
