pkodonOkay, I have this little 6G drive I want to put some sstuff I downloaded on, so I can put it in my Win98SE machine and have the stuff available to Windows on that machine. I created a FAT32 partition using the entire disk space. I created a /media/PC1 directory as a mountpoint for it, but when I go into a root shell and try to mount it, using "mount -t fat32 /dev/sdc1 /media/PC1", I'm told there's no such file system as "fat32".04:35
pkodonAnyone know what's going on there?04:38

AraneidaeI've noticed that my xubuntu desktop has the really bad habit of restarting lots of programs that were running the last time I exited.  Can I suppress this behaviour?10:08
ubottuTo add programs to start up when you log into your Gnome session go to System>Preferences>Sessions and use the Startup Programs tab. For more information, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddingProgramToSessionStartup - See !boot for starting non-interactive programs at boot10:09
knomeforget that.10:09
knomeAraneidae, when you log out, you see a tickbox to save your session10:09
knomeAraneidae, log out once with no programs running and that box selected10:09
knomeAraneidae, after that, uncheck the box10:10
AraneidaeThanks, I'd never noticed that10:10
AraneidaeDo you know where that information is actually stored?  In a hidden file somewhere, I guess...10:11
knomeAraneidae, i'm not sure.10:12
AraneidaeI've got far too many . files in my root -- I've tried gnome (ubuntu), kde, and now xfce.  Finding Ubuntu a bit too bloated for my taste now... can't find anything!10:13

AraneidaeYes, I mean `ls -A ~`10:14
Araneidaehttp://www.xfce.org/documentation/4.2/ looks like a good starting place, I guess10:14
AraneidaeAre there any howtos for getting rid of all the unnecessary gnome and kde residue on my system?  (I started with Ubuntu, installed kde-desktop and then xfce-desktop, now I guess I'm running a hybrid xubunut!)10:17

knome!ask | simo_14:26
ubottusimo_: 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. :-)14:26
simo_sorry about that14:26
simo_I tried to customize my Xubuntu panel so i tried to move around my icons, the prob is that I cannot place my icons wherever I want, they all stack up on the left side one by one14:27
simo_I am quite a newb so please help me out14:28
knomesimo_, add a new "Separator or Spacing" item to panel and select "Expand" in the opening window. you can unselect "Draw Separator" if you don't want it.14:30
knomesimo_, after you have that, the icons can be on both sides of the separator14:33
simo_knome, I think its working14:35
simo_let me try it out some more and I'll let you know.14:35
simo_knome, thanx a lot man it does exactly what I was looking for14:36

flammenwurferIs there a reason that "cat cpuinfo" says my cpu is running at 1000 Mhz when it's supposed to be a 2.5 Ghz cpu?16:39
cody-somervilleflammenwurfer, is it a laptop?16:42
cody-somervilleor dual core?16:42
flammenwurferit's a desktop, yes, it's a dual core amd athlon 4850e16:46
flammenwurfer2.5 Ghz dual core16:46
flammenwurferwhen I do cat cpuinfo it says both cores are 1000 Mhz16:46
knomeflammenwurfer, cat just prints the contents of cpuinfo.16:50
cody-somervilleflammenwurfer, probably has to do with something regarding its energy efficiency16:51
flammenwurferyeah, that makes sense16:51
flammenwurferis there any other way in xubuntu that I can see more detailed info abut my processor?16:51
cody-somervilleYou might also look at the sysstat package16:54
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about sysstat16:54

spasticteapotI have a very strange problem: While my PC will recognize everything from my Unreal Tournament Deluxe DVD to my burned CD of Terry Pratchett PDFs, it won't mount my Ben Folds CD.17:07
pkodonOkay, now that I'm back online, let me try this question again.17:07
spasticteapotHmm...that's odd.17:08
spasticteapotI can play my CD through the default XFCE music player, but I can't find it via Nautilus or import them via Rythmbox.17:08
knomespasticteapot, maybe it has some kind of copy protection?17:09
pkodonI noticed the question about "cat cpuspeed" or something like that, (if someone can tell me what it was, I'd apreciate it...17:09
spasticteapotIt says "recorded in 1996".17:09
spasticteapotCD-RWs cost maybe $25.17:09
knomespasticteapot, that doesn't justify anything, but ok.17:10
pkodonAnyway, whatever it was, I tried it in a shell, and got back a response that there was no such directory as "cpu...".17:10
spasticteapotknome: What do you mean "That doesn't justify anything?"17:10
spasticteapotI paid for the CD, fair and square.17:10
pkodonThe help in the shell for "cat" says it's for joining files.17:10
knomespasticteapot, well even if it was recorded in 1996, it doesn't mean it couldn't have a copy protection :)17:10
pkodonSo, what was this person using to find out his CPU info?17:10
spasticteapotknome: Weird.17:11
flammenwurferthat was me17:11
pkodonflammenwurfer: Ahh, yes, now I remember the nick.17:11

pkodonspasticteapot: Oops, try the Multimedia tab under removeable media in the Settings Manager.17:28
pkodonflammenwurfer: Yeah, I went to look, then checked the removable media section.17:30
flammenwurferhey, thanks pkodon, I've been wondering where those options were17:30

pkodonknome: Er, doesn't recognize as such.17:34
knomepkodon, not animated though but...17:35
pkodonWell, I'm going to have to find out some more about IM/IRC programs. I don't like Pidgin because it doesn't support "buzz" in IM, but Kopete seems to open every conversation in a new window, instead of a new tab in the main window.17:36
flammenwurferwhat do you mean "buzz?17:37
knomepkodon, you shouldn't. irssi is for major geeks who like text-based software ;)17:37
knomeflammenwurfer, wake up? prod?17:37
pkodonHmm. I installed that sysstat package with apt-get, and now bash says there is no such command.17:58

knomespasticteapot, i don't know whether it can access the cd you're trying to.18:02
spasticteapotThe problem seems primarily to be with Rythmbox.18:03
spasticteapotWhenever I run Rhythmbox under Ubuntu, I get this error message:  Gtk-WARNING **: AudioCdSourcePopupCopyCd: missing action MusicAudioCDDuplicate18:03
pkodonknome: I take it those three names are the actual programs (sar, iostat and mpstat)?18:03
spasticteapotApparently it's a registered bug.18:03
knomepkodon, yes18:03
pkodonknome: Hmm, sar returns: Cannot open /var/log/sysstat/sa17: No such file or directory18:06
knomepkodon, you might need to run with sudo18:06
pkodonI get the same thing.18:07
knomepkodon, oh... i don't know sar/sysstat, sorry :(18:07
pkodonknome: That's okay. :(18:08
knomepkodon, maybe ask #ubuntu, because individual packages are never xubuntu-specific18:08
j4nh12ranyone using xubuntu on a thinkpad x23 ?18:08
pkodonknome: Yeah, I've noticed that, even though I have Xfce as my UI, shell-based programs are UI independend, and even the ones that use KDE/Gnome can be run in Xfce.18:10
knomepkodon, that concerns also gui programs. any program in *buntu* repository can be run in xfce, kde or gnome18:10
pkodonI had installed a desktop called openGUE or something like that, which claimed to be more efficient than Xfce, but was some combination of Gnome and Enlightenment.18:12
pkodonopenGEU, that is.18:12
knomepkodon, the problem with many "light" window managers are that they miss functionality, are somewhat fuzzy if you're not familiar with them and that they can have a very small dev group (even one person) which makes the progress really slow.18:13
knomepkodon, and slow progress many times get people copying code from other projects and that becomes really soon a big mess.18:14
knomepkodon, not that you always should reinvent the wheel :)18:15
knomepkodon, and efficiency is not (only) cpu and/or memory efficiency18:15
spasticteapotDoes anyone here use Rhythmbox with Xubuntu?18:39

paulievoxHi there,20:04
paulievoxquick question about routing20:04
paulievoxI'm running Zoneminder (linux security camera platform) on an Intrepid 8.1 PC (xubuntu)20:05
paulievoxwith two NIC cards. I have 6 "IP" security cameras, which i placed20:05
paulievoxon their own network (10.0.1.x) with its own router.20:05
paulievoxThe "Front Of House" connection lives on a 192.168.1.x network20:05
paulievoxwith its own router.20:05
paulievoxCurrently i'm bridging the connections on the Linux PC,20:05
paulievoxby setting the secondary NIC card up with a 10.0.1.x address,20:05
paulievoxbut entering for the gateway (the only way it seems20:05
paulievoxto work).20:05
paulievoxI found that by separating the cameras from my FOH connection,20:05
paulievoxi don't run into bandwidth problems (they're greedy devils).20:05
paulievoxPardon my ignorance, but is there a more streamlined way to20:05
paulievoxset this up? Should I include a static route on the gateway20:05
paulievoxto the 10.0.1.x subnet?20:05
paulievox((the PC needs to live on the FOH network so Apache can be accessed20:05
paulievoxby other FOH machines)).20:05
fbchow do you unmount a volume with having remount again automatically?20:07
fbcI have an external drive I would like to format and I can't because it remount automatically.20:07
paulievox((sorry for the wrong text encoding spam))20:08
knomefbc, if it mounts automagically from fstab, you can unmount it and it will mount again on boot20:11
knomepaulievox, #ubuntu might be better place to ask. as this is a general linux/routing question, also other channels/forums might be helpful20:14
fbcknome, no it's an external drive that has no entry in fstab20:14
knomefbc, so how is it automatically mounted?20:14
paulievoxok.  thanks knome20:14
knomepaulievox, np. sorry i'm not able to help myself. :)20:14
knomepaulievox, for your convenience you might post that info into forums (ubuntuforums.org for example) and just give link there20:15

charlie-tcaNo, 192MB to run it21:04
Ahmuckdoes it run well at 192?21:14
knomeAhmuck, not really.21:15
Ahmuckwe have someone that wants to switch, however, i don't want to put on something that won't run as quickly as windows xp would.  i've found lately that the *untu and linux in general is getting processor usage heavy21:15
Ahmucki did try crunchbang ealier, but it still needs some work imho to be a user distro.  very nice, and polished, but i don't want to support another user forever21:16
knomeAhmuck, i think it depends on what you are running if you compare xp to xubuntu with 192 ram21:17
knomeAhmuck, if the user wants to make the change, then i'd go for it.21:17
Ahmuckthe user is forced into the change.  being the local helpful tech person, when thier xp computer went down i volunteered to assist.  however, it appears it's a "pirated" copy from another helpful tech person, which i won't fix21:18
