Brack10I'm trying to mount my extra hdd but it says "must specify filesystem type" so then when I do -t ext3 it says "CANNOT FIND EXT3 PARTITION"  I'm going "mount /dev/hda /extrahdd"00:45
squirt33_quiksilver: If you have to, reboot into Windows and find out that way.00:46
gmm46actually quiksilver i remember seeing Ubuntu Linux For Dummies online in the walmart catalog. i am sure you could find it somewhere online00:46
j_nwbthe_squircle:  re-install grub where ? /dev/sdb2?00:46
runderwoj_nwb: So if I hear you correctly, you did not actually install grub in the MBR?00:46
tsunamiare there known problems from migrating to ubuntu from kubuntu?00:46
ConstantineXVItsunami, shouldnt be00:46
Brack10also why am I banned from #Debian?00:47
runderwoj_nwb: Also, is "Bad File descriptor" really the error you are getting?00:47
Brack10is it because I ask noob questions all the time?00:47
gmm46is there anyway to run a linux script in fullscreen automatically?00:47
rwwBrack10: you'd need to ask them. We don't control #debian.00:47
j_nwbyes.. I do not do that for other oses... my MBR boots in to fedora.. I have other operating systems.. like suse...etc... I go and manully change the grub file in fedora installation to point to other installations.00:47
runderwogmm46: A fullscreen terminal?00:47
Brack10rww: how can I do that when I'm banned?00:47
j_nwbmount their partitions.. and copy menu.lst snippet.00:48
rwwBrack10: /msg chanserv access #debian list to get a list of operators, find one that's online, and ask them.00:48
j_nwbIrunderwo: I will reboot and get u the exact description.. in a min.00:48
gmm46ya when i run my script i want it to run in terminal but in fullscreen without me pressing F1100:48
runderwoj_nwb: So, you do get GRUB, and then when you select Ubuntu, it fails?00:48

DasEiBrack10:open a terinal..00:49
netsurf3has anyone actually been able to remove the popping etc from pulse audio in hardy?00:49
runderwoBrack10: /dev/hda is not likely to actually have a filesystem on it.  It should be /dev/hda1 or something like that.00:49
Brack10DasEi: done00:49
MK13hey, is there a way to take a driver (nvidia) off of a Mandriva install cd, for use with ubuntu or will it not work cause of the different distro?00:49

DasEiBrack10:sudo mkdir /mnt/mydisk00:49
EnverexI have no icons on my Applications, Places or System menu, anyone encountered that before?00:49

linuxman410what does it do when you try to install00:51
Brack10ok nevermind I found it, you were right it was /dev/hda100:51
DasEi!who | brack1000:51
ubottubrack10: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)00:51

runderwoquiksilver: cat /proc/asound/cards00:53
MK13is there a way to download nvidia driver then install it? my internet connection breaks alot and I don't want it to break while installing it.00:53
Rencxlinuxman410: from your lik it asks for key00:53
Brack10cp -r ok00:53
gmm46cp -r is for directories and just cp is for files00:53
ConstantineXVIMK13, no need to worry00:53

MK13kk, that is what i needed to hear thnx.00:55
Rencxlinuxman410: from your lik it asks for key00:55
runderwoquiksilver: They are included with the kernel and loaded.  If you are not hearing sound, maybe it is muted or volume is down.00:55
MK13i have had a bad experience trying to do it before, it wouldn't resume00:55
quiksilveroh wow00:55
runderwoj_nwb: So /boot is inside /dev/sdb2 and not on a separate partition?00:55
Brack10is it possible to get cp to show some kind of information like an ETA?00:56
gmm46Brack10: if you type info cp it will show you the info on the cp command00:57

mx-tvthey... Is ext4 supposed to be slower or faster than ntfs (under windows). I am copying the same files from my home partition to an ext4 parition in an external drive, and from windows to another ntfs parition on the same external drive. Windows seems to copy files at 14mb/s while ext4 in lnux goes between 5-901:03
Rencxgmm46 maybe i have add wrong stuff in synaptic01:03

j_nwbrunderwo: When I try file completion.. it is trying to get to my fedora partition ... as root is set to (hd0,0)01:03

JorophoseHi, I'm trying to help a friend install ubuntu, but for some reason GRUB won't install, and when it does, it won't allow her to boot. It just says that there's no operating system (or something along those lines)01:04
Knysliux001afroken: sudo apt-get upgrade01:04
JorophoseAny idea on what to do? I tried installing grub manually, but it won't find the OS.01:05
j_nwbrunderwo: And there is no root directive... so it is not finding it.01:05
runderwoj_nwb: That is okay when it comes to the kernel.  When it comes to grub, it needs to know the BIOS disk and partition number.01:05
graysonHi all.01:05
runderwoj_nwb: that's why grub uses the (hdX,Y) stuff.01:05
j_nwbrunderwo: I added root (hd1,1)01:05
afrokenKnysliux001, upgrade -will download the latest versions of the software i'm running plus security updates?01:05

Knysliux001afroken: and not only download, it will install them01:06
RencxDo anyone can help me install cinelerra??01:06
runderwoafroken: Unless the newer version of the software requires a new package that it didn't require before.  In that case, you'd have to use dist-upgrade.01:06
graysonaptoncd refuses to find more than 3 packages?? Where iare the packages please I will have to save them manually. thank you01:06

=== moldy_ is now known as moldy
afrokenrunderwo, will apt tell me i need to use that?01:06

Rencxhow can i install this file??? cinelerra-4-ubuntu-i686.tar.bz201:07
graysonmoldy, depends on your card01:07
runderwoafroken: If you see packages "held back", then that tells you that dist-upgrade is required to be fully up-to-date.01:07
TheFunkbombSo, what's the next step?  I have a pretty good feel of Ubuntu now but feel stupid having a swiss army knife of OSes and only using the tweezers01:07
j_nwbrunderwo: And it gives Bad File or directory type01:07
afrokenrunderwo, thanks01:07

runderwoBrack10: Just copy them, unless it's over a slow link.01:08
moldygrayson: i ran aptitude search nvidia, but i am confused now. what is the correct version to install?01:08

graysonmoldy, sorry I am only good with gui :(01:11
moldygrayson: ok. thanks anyway :)01:11
runderwoj_nwb: Well, check the BIOS and see which drive is which according to it.  Sometimes grub is set up to monkey with that (usually to deal with windows) which would mislead you into thinking /dev/sdb is the second disk, in that case.01:11
gnubuntuRencx: Sorry. i cant help you with that.01:11

unopComet, tsclient perhaps?01:23
DaveWgerob, yes you should01:24
TheFunkbombIndyGunFreak, I can build a Windows based computer.  I guess I should just do that and do your thing of googling each part.  I'm wondering if Ubuntu would support Intel's new i7 processor and stuff like that01:24
IndyGunFreakTheFunkbomb: just remember.. motherboards- Asus/MSI, Harddrives- WD/Seagate, Optical Drives- Lite ON, GPU- Nvidia.. and you'll probably be OK01:24

nkei0How about this one?  I am on an acer aspire 1680 running 8.10, however the only way I can boot and do anything is to add acpi=off in the menu.lst.  The only problem with that is that my wifi killswitch has something to do with an acpi event and it stops working all the time...02:00

Tyrathdoes the python program have a dictionary? and how good is it if it does?03:24
nightrid3rmarine: it could be either a burning error or a bad download03:24
ChlorateWhen I play videos from my hard drive through totem, vlc, etc they flash black like the refresh rate is wrong. This only occurs when I have compiz running, any ideas how to fix it? I'm on ubuntu 8.10 32bit.03:25
marinenightrid3r, is that what a casper file means03:25
jribTyrath: what do you mean exactly?03:25
nightrid3rmarine: no the file has to be there but if it doesn't boot and your bios is ok then you have a bad disk03:25
Robert_Surcoufzacktu: looks good quick question it was sda2 before ?03:25
Ultraputzin nautilus, where are the icons in the sidebar (shortcuts) defined? is there a reference that documents it?03:25
Tyrathjrib: well is there any python command that looks up words in a dictionary? like >>> lookup <word> ?03:26
jribTyrath: #python03:26
Tyrathjrib: I guess i'll just check in the man then03:26
graysonHi all, what is the command in terminal to update clamav, please and thank you.03:26
marinenightrid3r, the error mesage is cannot find autorun program03:26
Tyrathjrib: but if you want to send me to a channel for something would you know of a channel that could help me with QTStalker?03:27
jribTyrath: ask #python, that's the proper place to ask question about python programming03:27
jribTyrath: I don't know what qtstalker is03:27
MK13grayson: not sure, but isn't it 'sudo apt-get update clamav' or similar?03:27
nightrid3rmarine: is there a file "umenu.exe"03:27
Tyrathjrib: it's not python programming related, just python command related. I don't know python and don't care to learn it - i only use the program for it's calculator but thanks for the tip anyhow03:27
zacktuRobert_Surcouf: dunno about sda2 -- now i have sda1 & sda3 as windows partitions and sda2 is an extended partition containint /boot /home / and swap03:27
jribTyrath: what you are asking is a python programming question03:28
linuxman410grayson it is gksudo clamtk03:28
marinenightrid3r, yes it's a blue diamond shaped03:28
Robert_Surcoufzacktu: could you issue a sudo swapon -a03:28
graysonMK13, I tried "sudo apt-get clamfresh" and sudo freshclam03:28
graysonlinuxman410, Thankl you!03:28
Tyrathjrib: I don't understand. it doesn't involve programming anything03:28
jribTyrath: use 'dict' if you just want a command to use in the terminal (not in the python shell)03:28
linuxman410your welcome03:28
Tyrathjrib: i do use dict, i was just curious03:28
Tyrathjrib: the thing is dict is a little bit annoying because it just dumps an output, the program doesn't enter any interactive mode or anything03:29
OmiKrOncan someone tell me what is the latest stable kernel version available in repos for Ubuntu 8.04?03:29
jribTyrath: dict WORD | less03:29
Tyrathjrib: that would merely enable me to scroll, it wouldn't enable me to input additional searches03:30
Rencxcold somone explain how wor vbox?03:30
zacktuRobert_Surcouf: done -- swap doesn't normally get used - one time i was running a memory-hungry app and kept opening others until I finally saw some of swap get used03:30
Tyrathjrib: piping isn't what i mean03:30
RencxWhat is better VirtualBox or Wine?03:30
dmsupermanTrying to boot the alternate installer I get this: ACPI: Invalid PBLK length [0]03:30
jribTyrath: if that's what you want, ask that03:30
jribRencx: they are completely different things03:30
doublewulfrencx they do different things03:30
GobbyIf i deleted a file.. that was not a like uninstallable program.. its not installed just downloaded and used it no setup what so ever.. if i just delete this will it permanently go away? sorry i cant think of any better way to put it03:30
nightrid3rmarine: did you check the md5sum before burning03:31
graysonlinuxman410, Thank you03:31
Rencxcold you explain me difference?03:31
marinenightrid3r, yes i did and everything was fine the sytem works soild03:31
Tyrathjrib: in which case would you know of a low resource dictionary program that has a running mode and doesn't simply quit upon execution?03:31
jribGobby: if you delete a file, it goes away, yes...03:31
doublewulfRencx: wine allows for running windows applications. Virtual box allows you to run multiple instances of virtual machines for whichever OS you have images03:31
weltpopeltagFlips a coin: TAILS03:31
jribTyrath: not for a shell, no03:31
jribweltpopeltag: please don't do that03:31
Robert_Surcoufzacktu: hum what I would like to try is to do a to do a hibernation is it possible ? or not, in order to test the hibernation process you have to issue two commands $ echo reboot > /sys/power/disk and $ echo disk > /sys/power/state03:31
Tyrathjrib: ahh k. thanks anyhow03:32
xSlackcan someone help me get the title bars back on my windows03:32
Gobbyno matter what? its not like windows where it stays in the registry etc? im farily new.. the program was used in wine.. and i think it had a virus... so i deleted it03:32
Rencx<doublewulf> VirtualBox will instal xp and only then i can run program?03:32
nightrid3rmarine: try to burn another disk and use that one, write it at a lower speed03:32
jribGobby: well the program could have done whatever it wanted to when you ran it...03:32
MK13Gobby: yes, it should go away if it was standalone. It may have made files outside of its directory but it is not common for standalone programs to do that03:32
The_Rebelhow do i get gfxboot working?03:32
TyrathRobert_Surcouf: have you tried /etc/acpi/hibernate.sh ?03:32
doublewulfrencx virtualbox will allow you to install xp in a virtual environment which you define, as long as you have an image for XP, or an install disk.03:32
doublewulfrencx: wine will allow you to run individual windows programs03:33
Gobbyi used it for about 3 mins and found out about the virus, it would not have enough time right?03:33
MK13Gobby: it only takes the time to run it :(03:33
marinenightrid3r, basically i want to import the remaining hardrive space that i made with gparted that is unallocated right now03:33
MK13Gobby: once stated that is it03:33
marinenightrid3r, any suggestions03:33
jribGobby: if it's a windows virus than it probably would not do much more than affect your ~/.wine/drive_c/03:33
GobbyHmm, well i deleted it , have'nt found any other instances of it03:34
MK13was it in wine?03:34
MoLootGobby 180 seconds is a lot of time for ANY application to run and complete several times over.03:34
Rencxok ty for your help :)03:34
nightrid3rmarine: gparted03:34
GobbyHow would i know?03:34
MK13what was the file?03:34
GobbyShould i go in there and check?... im so paranoid.. i love ubuntu and dont wont to reinstall lol.03:34
zacktuRobert_Surcouf: what are these commands going to do?03:34
marinenightrid3r, yes that's how i got the unallocated part03:34
linuxman410dmsuperman are u using asus board03:34
Tyrathyou can use linux command to evade the necessity to use gparted btw folks03:34
Robert_Surcoufzacktu: create the image reboot resume03:34
dmsupermanlinuxman410: Not sure, it's an Acer Aspire laptop03:35
marinenightrid3r, can't unlock the drive when i'm using it03:35
Tyrathlike partition stuff is doable with simple linux commands03:35
linuxman410what model dmsuperman03:35
nightrid3rmarine: there is a gparted iso on sourceforge03:35

RencxI want here peoples opinon.. Whic OS ar better Ubuntu, Elive..... etc..?03:38
gustavomy computer is slow how can i make it faster03:38
Tyrathoholiab: that wasn't really clear. but what i'm saying suggesting is that GUI progs may not necessarily have to use linux commands to handle system things03:38
dmsupermanlinuxman410: The issue now is, after booting from the CD-ROM, it can't detect teh CD-ROM -_-03:38
Gobbyhow do i run programs through the terminal so i get the CLI ?03:38
zacktuRobert_Surcouf: even sudo doesn't allow echo reboot -- the files are 64403:38
crashsystems@runderwo with the autorun I choose to open rhythmbox. the cd spins up, but nothing happens.03:39
runderwohellhound_: Check /proc/interrupts and see if there is a card sharing IRQ with it.  Otherwise, try 'noacpi noapic' on the kernel arguments.03:39
Tyrathoholiab: you could produce a more resource intensive program that bypassed the commands03:39
marinenightrid3r, you there03:39
nightrid3rmarine: yes03:39
Jazzy_JRencx: depends on what you want out of the OS.03:39

oholiabTyrath: but that wouldn't be particularly sensible when you consider resource usage and also the development of the software...

BlueEaglegerinych: No, a partition mounted on the folder /boot. Did you create one spesifically for that purpous and is it mounted when you attempt to re-install grub?03:43

BlueEaglerencx: ext3 is the most popular file system. It is quite robust and backwards compatible with ext2.

evowillhomeskillet, either wpa or wpa2 will work, but be sure to use a long random key.03:54

BlueEaglelostchild: It would be helpfull to know how well it sleeps.03:56
xxCodyI was always told Gparted03:56
oholiabrunderwo: I started with slack as well :) I found dependencies to be a problem that made me want to shoot myself though03:56
xxCodyAnd to burn it to a live Cd and not run it in a OS03:56
evowillBlueEagle, wpa can still be brute forced, offline even, so it has to be long enough and random enough to make sure that it wouldn't happen in the time that you keep the key03:56
Tyrathrunderwo: ahh cool. sorry to go offtopic :/03:56

pentasideGotcha.  Yea, gparted apparently just isn't an option for me.  It take about an hour and a half to load (from boot cd), once it finally loads and I tell it what I want it to do, it starts but never gets past 0%.03:59

LostchildBlueEagle, That would be my guess, but I can't seem to find any obvious errors in the logs.03:59
rconanTyrath, can that be used for suspend-to-RAM and can I introduce the same delay that is possible with shutdown?03:59

oholiabTyrath: that confused the hell out of me when I first used ubuntu... I think it's just because the distro is supposed to be aimed at desktop users so generally speaking they won't actually create a root account but should be able to perform things with root permissions04:01

BlueEagleposeidon: By default the root account is disabled in Ubuntu. This is argued as being a security measure. The effectiveness of this is debatable but my view is that not having a root account gives any potential attackers one less known target to attempt to exploit.04:03

phanlesoni am on an acer aspire one netbook and just installed kde4.1 on an ubuntu 8.10 installation but my resolution is wrong, how can i change that?04:25
oholiabFernandoF: what I usually do in a situation like that is uninstall the package and then re-install it, but I can't guarantee that will solve your problem04:25
FernandoFI had a version ok some 6 months ago, and it occured after updates and it only happens under hotmail  and not other email providers04:25
marinenightrid3r, hey bro did exactly as you said found it in the advance mode set to noot up in cd pressed enter f10 to save and it still didn;t boot up in cd04:25
evowillYes, but you can still install software on the live system, granted it will only be for that session, and you are limited by swap space if you have it and RAM04:25
nbeebosheep, thank you very much04:25
phixxorJoshPilcer: would that be the dpkg command? however i'm not sure it's always a good idea; what are you trying to accomplish?04:25

eseven73evowill: Hmmm when I had full disk encryption I had no problems with anything and I'm a noob. :)04:26
JoshPilcerphixxor it said i needed to install build-essential. and i found a .deb file from ubuntu. and i have to install it that way since sudo apt-get doesn't work04:27
oholiabFernandoF: sudo apt-get remove firefox && sudo apt-get install firefox04:27
oholiabshould do it04:27
FernandoFI read somewhere it could be a fight  against software free ... to avoid the use of Firefox04:27

BlueEaglejrattner1: I do not recomend compiling from source unless you know how to recover a broken system. However you'll never learn how to recover a broken system if you never break one. So it all comes down to one question: Do you feel lucky?04:32

marineJack_Sparrow, let me try your first suggestion f604:46
JoshPilceri plugged in the phone line into the laptop and nothing happened...04:46
brian-laptop_nightrid3r: not understanding what u mean04:46
marineJack_Sparrow, which screen do i activate f604:46
tsrknickrud, why is the crontab command better to use to edit than just editing directly?04:46
wastreltsrk: it checks that you didn't mess up the syntax in the file04:47
JoshPilceri plugged in the phone line into the laptop and nothing happened...04:47
tsrkwastrel, ok, thanks04:47
n8tusertsrk -> its like a Makefile, it has certain format that if you screw up, you are hosed04:47
nightrid3rbrian-laptop_: there is to much data from diffrent wifi's going on the same channel, sometimes your card loses track of your router04:47
nickrudtsrk, because the crontab dir is not normally readable by a usedr04:47

HunterRequiem I have an asus f3k, and I'm trying to reinstall ubuntu, but when I try (with 8.10), the live CD fails to boot the gui. can anyone help me?04:58
stoojJack_Sparrow, that looks pretty good - but any chance of skipping the CD and just updating over the lan?\04:58
nickrudwastrel, bet you didn't know apt-get now has purge and remove, like aptitude :)04:58
nightrid3rHunterRequiem: did you set your bios to boot from cd04:58

wastrelapt-get purge  mmm saves keystrokes04:58
Jack_SparrowHunterRequiem, When it crashes  try ctrl-alt F1 and see if you get a terminal screen04:58

poseidonI'm using the emrald theme manager, and I can get it to work if I use emerald --replace inthe command line, but If I close the terminal all my windows bars disappear.04:59
grndslmhow do the three different repos work (reg, -updates, & -security)  if an update is made to -security... the code in the other 2 are also updated?  or if an update's made to -updates... the code in -security isn't updated, right?04:59
HunterRequiemnightrid3r: the issue has nothing to do with ubuntu not booting at all, I get a command prompt and I've found that x isn't working properly04:59

Dr_williskeithclark,   or As a quick and dirty way.. put a minimal linux on each client.. and use the XDMCP feature of X to get them to  be a 'thin client' :)05:33
keithclarkCpudan80: some stuff can exist on the clients, I just want to minimize it.05:33
Cpudan80then that ltsp is the way to go05:33

Cpudan80keithclark: another way would be a whole mess of NFS05:34

tokyoaheadguys my firefox is messed up because of an add-on, how can I start it without loading the addon?05:34

jkoltnerconfusedbylinux: Sobell's "A Practical Guide to Ubuntu Linux" is a good book, if you're looking... it's quite thick, but if you go through it slowly but surely, within 3-6 months you'll be quite experienced.  "Ubuntu Kung Fu" by Keir Thomas is also quite good if you're just looking for tricks to "get things done" rather than becoming a Linux expert.05:37
kevdogDont waste money buying a book -- Just begin playing with the system05:38
cjkevdog: why can't you use the standard tools to change font?05:38

TekumelYou can't write a novel without knowing the alphabet.05:38
CoJaBo-HBI learned Linux almost entirely from tings found on Google lol05:38
jkoltnerkevdog: Nothing wrong with playing, but I think it can be a slowly way to really understand a system than to use a more methodical approach than a book provides.  Certainly different methods of learning work best for different people, of course.05:38

kevdogcj:  Im using enlightenment now -- however prior to that metacity,gnome.  I found that all gnome apps on my very old machine (it worked with the Feisty kernel) the fonts become corrupted to the point of non-readability about every 10 minutes.  if I change the fonts, they suddenly become readable05:39
CoJaBo-HBTheres plenty of guides and even many free Linux books on the internet.05:40
jkoltnerkevdog: I do agree that forums and IRC are some of the best resources out there for getting help... that's the downside of a book and, e.g., the "man" pages... you can't ask them questions and have them give you a response. :-)05:40

kevdogwastrel:  You'd recommend postfix or something else?05:53
nightrid3rhelo: i have never used lmsensors so thats as far as my help goes05:53
Paddy_EIRERencx, you see by default the keyring associates your user password along with the keyring password.. as far as I know that has been depreciated but it seems to be what you are suffering with05:53
Dr_Willis_ZNCpr0fXavier,  yes. the install script needs tobe ran with root privilages. :)  I always copy the installer files to the virtualmachine. so i dont need the cd later.. if i have to reinsatll the addons05:53
heloit says "E: Couldn't find package lmsensors"05:53
wastrelkevdog: postfix is what i use by default normally, unless sendmail is required (mostly at work this happens)05:53

kevdogall ports are open by default06:03
wastrelsigh our windows users get so confused about openoffice that we just buy them ms office anyway06:03
kevdogNo need to open ports by default with firestarter06:03
Paddy_EIREhelo, http://www.ubuntu-unleashed.com/2008/05/some-gnome-panel-applets-you-may-not.html06:03
Dr_Willis_ZNCTekumel,  i dont even use a computer at where i work.. other then to watch my own videos on  :P06:03

Samizdathmm, no WinFF tribesmen here06:03
atom^xhelo: i use conky and lmsensors for a graphical view of many things06:03
wastrelmarabout: ah!  so what do you see when you do    dpkg -l | grep ubuntu-desktop    as one command?06:04
kameronchronographer, openssh-server is already the newest version.06:04
kameronopenssh-server set to manually installed.06:04
Steelflintconfusedbylinux, Also, even with more PC makers building Linux systems, they're NOT pushing those systems, so the average joe looking to buy a new computer won't see nonWindows PCs unless he is specifically looking for them.06:04
jkoltnerwastrel: Yeah, tell me about it.  I think it's a real shame that schools don't standardize on OO... while MSO certainly it nice and does have some advanced features that OO doesn't, I'm quite convinced that >90% of all work down in Word/Excel would just as readily be done in Write/Calc.06:04
kameronchronographer, soo it's downloaded but not installed i guess.06:04
chronographerareyou on that machine? you can try connecting to yourself: ssh <user>@localhost06:04
wastrelmuch less abiword and gnumeric06:04
heloPaddy_EIRE: will there be any time soon where installing in linux will be as easy as windows?  a lot of this stuff is way complicated for me06:04
chronographerif it is a local network, use ifconfig to find ip06:04
Paddy_EIRE!lnw | helo06:05
ubottuhelo: Want to know the differences between Windows and Linux? This guide, called "Linux is Not Windows" is a pretty good read -- http://linux.oneandoneis2.org/LNW.htm06:05
bullgard4What programs evaluate the /etc/default/acpi-support file's content?06:05
Paddy_EIREhelo, stick with what you know06:05
kevdogInstalling ubuntu IMO is easier than a WinXP install06:05
Paddy_EIREyeah it is06:05
chronographerkevdog: also takes 1/5 of the time06:05
Samizdathelo: that sheriff's already in town, and his name's Wine06:05
confusedbylinuxgot to thinking about trying linux again after reading on slashdot, how some lady got a dell computer with linux on it, instead of getting windows ,she cancelled 2 semesters of school :)06:05
kevdogMaybe b/c Ive done it a lot06:05
maraboutwastrel: nothing just a blinking cursor...06:05
Paddy_EIRESamizdat, wrong answer :P06:05
darkdelusionsconfusedbylinux: I loved that article06:05
chronographerconfusedbylinux: linux is easy, once you understand synaptic and can do google searches06:06
heloPaddy_EIRE:  well i have to have ubuntu on this computer since i don't have another copy of windows.  plus Linux runs SMP F@H better then Windows06:06
wastrelmarabout: that's a proper result if you don't have ubuntu-desktop installed.  which means that you haven't got the GUI packages.06:06
SamizdatRight for me, my friend, right for me.06:06
jkoltnerhelo: Probably not.  There is "one Linux," so while package managers tend to make it as easy to install applications as Windows does, if the software you're after hasn't been packaged yet, there's no trivial way for the programmers to hand you a "setup.exe" file.06:06
darkdelusionschronographer: Google is hard... :)06:06
Paddy_EIREhelo, read that link I gave06:06
kameronchronographer, no i dont have physical access to the machine, it's across town06:06
jkoltnerhelo:  Oops, that should say there is NO "one linux"06:06
kevdogIts not just a winxp install that takes time --- then you have to download all the service pack updates, register or get around the registration, antivirus, firewall crap with windows06:06
jkoltnerhelo: E.g., general software is re-compiled on each distribution06:06
Paddy_EIREhelo, we certainly dont want linux to become as dumbed down as windows.. that would be a nightmare and I would quickly abandon ship06:06
mlalkakahi everyone06:07
maraboutwastrel: man how is that possible when I did the install off the (alt) CD and at boot up it gave me a choice of which OS to chose, Ubuntu being one of them...?06:07
SamizdatWhat turns off Winfolk about Linfolk is the priesthood pretense.06:07
confusedbylinuxbest part about that article was that it was a TECHNICAL school she was attending06:07
chronographerkameron: I'm no expert... there are a few variables, like I said to getting ssh access: ip of its router (isp connection to internet) then port forwardingto the machine from router, then the machine letting you in, then your username password.06:07
SamizdatWine is the great bridge.06:07
heloPaddy_EIRE: will read.  i think i'll need both06:07
Dr_Willis_ZNCmarabout,  thats the grub boot loader/menu.06:07
helobecause Linux is free06:07
Paddy_EIRESamizdat, naa.. that is normally just people who cant do things for themselves06:07
wastrelmarabout: the gui is an extra component to the linux system  it's not necessary for a fully functioning system06:08
kevdogWine sux IMO06:08
phunyguyhello folks06:08
wastrelmarabout: so you can boot the computer and run the command line programs06:08
scunizi_Paddy_EIRE: it won't ever become dumbed down.. Maybe made easier for those that need it simpler but for the pwr user, access will always be there.. to many hackers to let a locked system stay that way :)06:08
phunyguyis there a package for kernel 2.6.28 out yet?06:08
jkoltnerSamizdat: That's becoming less of a problem/challenge over time... there are plenty of Linux people who don't feel that knowing which command-line options aren't used by 'ls' is requisite before you're given a login name on a Linux box. :-)06:08
Paddy_EIRESamizdat, like dealing with their own inadequacies.. I read and learn just like everyone else06:08
chronographerspeaking of wine, what is the best version of ms office to use in wine? (I need to open a spreadsheet and OO.o doesn't display it right...)06:08
SamizdatAye, Father Paddy McEire, aye06:08
kameronchronographer, yeah i know what you're saying. i didn't really check out the deal before i left. might be behind a router and need port forwarding.06:08
wastrelmarabout: but   sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop  should get all the normal GUI stuff installed for you.06:08
Paddy_EIREScunizi, :)06:08
helothanks again too all06:08
Paddy_EIRESamizdat, careful06:09
heloi'm out for now06:09
kevdogchronographer: get a windows machine :)06:09
maraboutwastrel: chalk up a big DUH for marabout. ok let me try that06:09
jkoltnerchronographer: Running Windows under a virtual machine might be your best bet.  VMware is good, although not free.06:09
win7usrif you install new drivers and they mess up, how do you go back to the default config and get the gui again/06:10
chronographeryeah. I have a XP VM in virtualbox its fine06:10
eseven73there is a free Vmware server06:10
wastreli need to test oulook for work so i've been meaning to set up an xp vm06:10

eseven73I'd go with SUNS VirtualBox myself06:10
kevdogI thought VMware and Virtualbox were free06:10
chronographerits a 20mbdownload, open source and free (most of it is open source)06:11
eseven73Some vmware is free, some versions are not06:11
jkoltnerkevdog: The VMware "player" is free, but to create a *new* virtual machine requires the non-free version06:11
mib_xuaqs7By mistake I removed via apt-get remove the top right section of the screen's functionality. It now says Users, instead of my username, and when I click on it, instead of getting Shut Down, Reboot etc., I get nothing. Can someone please tell me the name of it, so I can apt-get install it?06:11
maraboutwastrel:  after typing : "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-deskttop"  command is repeated and then just a blinking cursor06:11
kevdogjkoltner: Oh  did not know that!06:11
phunyguywhat? VMWare is free.06:11
chronographerjust get virtualbox! I have win7 in one now, it has coo lthings like seamless mode (run app in window like its native )etc.06:11
phunyguyVmware server 2.006:11
phunyguyand now VMWare ESXi06:11
confusedbylinuxbig question, i just installed linux yesterday, read that a standard ubuntu install does not need a firewall, but when i look at available updates, there is 220 of them...do i install all of them or pick and choose.? will installing all make my system less stable/secure? ..... and if i do pick and choose, do i really have to look over 220 items with cryptic names, to choose ones I might need?06:12
Flannelmib_xuaqs7: You can look in /var/log/dpkg.log to see what you recently removed06:12
mlalkakai just installed the 64-bit version of intrepid ibex on my new machine, that has 4 gb of ram. but still, i still only see 3707 mb when i run `free -m` (also in the system monitor). what else do i have to do before i can see the whole 4 gb?06:12
phunyguyyou just sing up on the site for a license06:12
wastrelmarabout: that's weird.  what does your prompt look like?06:12
eseven73VirtualBox's seamless mode is priceless06:12
wastrel(the part before the cursor)06:12
chronographerconfusedbylinux: install them all06:12
Flannelconfusedbylinux: You should just do all of them06:12
jkoltnerkevdog: Granted, finding a VMware image of any popular OS that you can use with the free player is probably not at all difficult.06:12
kevdogconfusedblinux: Install all06:12
doublewulfmlalkaka: does your motherboard have an onboard video card?06:12
mib_xuaqs7Flannel: I've been going through my whole distribution (sorted the packages by size) deleting everything I don't need06:13
maraboutwastrel:  before now it was "~$ " now it is just " _ "  blinking06:13
mib_xuaqs7Flannel: So the log wouldn't be helpful06:13
mlalkakadoublewulf: yes it does, but i'm using a separate pci express graphics card06:13
kevdogwastel:  You have an internet connection?06:13
win7usrconfusedbylinux: install all -- most are small in size and all make your system better06:13

doublewulfmlalkaka: did you turn the onboard video off?06:13

mib_xuaqs7By mistake I removed via 'apt-get remove' the top right section of my Ubuntu (GNOME) screen's functionality. It now says Users, instead of my username, and when I click on it, instead of getting Shut Down, Reboot etc., I get only a tiny bit of the window, with no text or icons.

kevdogJoshPilcer: why you want wifi-radar -- Isn't Network Manager or WICD preferrable?06:30
ScubidusWhenever I play warzone 2100 for like 20 minutes, then my OS kills the game and any other processes and logs me out06:30
FlannelJoshPilcer: You don't want the tar, use the one in the repos.06:30
pha3zcan anyone tell me what resolution the timer has in the ubuntu kernel.  I'm not referring to multi-tasking resolution (as in pre-emptive switching between applications).  I'm actually referring to the system timer which is used by games to do all their computation in real-time.06:31
pha3z[00:23] <pha3zhome> i seem to have trouble finding any information that is not about the multi-tasking management.06:31
wastrelGautam: lsb_release -a    will give you info about what version you are running.06:31
pha3zas an example, the windows system timer has has a resolution of 1 millisecond06:31
JoshPilceromg, how can i get wifi on ubuntu on my hp pavilion dv6000. I don't have any internet. but i can download from my other computer and transfer. can someone pm me and help06:31
kevdoglsb_release -- yet another command I've never heard of!! Very Nice!!06:32
wastrelGautam: "dapper" is the code name for the 6.06 release     the current 8.10 release code name is intrepid06:32
kevdogWhat's a LSB Module?06:32
Dr_Willis_ZNClsb -> linux softeare base. :) i think.. o forget where/who they are06:32
Paddy_EIRElinux standard base06:32
nickrudJoshPilcer, can't you just plug this computer into the net long enough to get wireless set up?06:32
JoshPilcerno i can't06:32
kevdogNo LSB Modules are available?  Seems wierd!!06:32
Flannelpha3z: in the -server kernel, the timer is 100Hz, in the generic kernel its 250Hz06:32
JoshPilceri just have my neighbors wifi06:32
JoshPilcerand dial-up06:33
Paddy_EIREJoshPilcer, that is theft06:33
wastrelkevdog: fyi  /etc/lsb-release06:33
Paddy_EIREwe can not support that JoshPilcer06:33
JoshPilcerit's not theft. or else they should've put a password on it06:33
maraboutkevdog:  i believe it is complete as It has returned me to ~& prompt. What is next?06:33
JoshPilcerand they said i can use it...06:33
FlannelJoshPilcer: You'll need to download the deb, from packages.ubuntu.com06:33
Paddy_EIREJoshPilcer, its still the same no matter which way you cut it06:33
nickrudunless you get permission of course06:33
jkoltnerJoshPilcer: If you think it's not theft, go ask them if you can use it.  Come back if they say, "yes."06:33
kevdogmarabout: sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install ubuntu-desktop06:34
JoshPilceri have their permission to use it....06:34
Paddy_EIREnickrud, you take it at face value06:34
JoshPilcerthat's why they bought it06:34
pha3zFlannel: I read that, and its 1000Hz in the rt kernel.   But it looked like that was specific to task-switching.  Is that also the resolution of the timer that an application would use for tracking system time and doing calculations ??  Honestly, maybe I need to learn more about programming games on Linux to ask this better.06:34
nickrudPaddy_EIRE, what reason do I have not to?06:34
JoshPilcerbut i don't have time to go over there06:34
atm0sphJoshPilcer: I just did the sudo dpkg --purge compiz and it seems to have worked.  thanks06:34
kevdogJoshPilcer: Just connect using a manual connection : You don't need special software06:34
maraboutkevdog:  all one command Yes?06:34
Paddy_EIREnickrud, I dont know.. I guess the CoC and the like would say otherwise though :)06:34
kevdogJoshPilcer: Is the wireless encrypted? WEP or WPA?06:35
wastreli am thirsty06:35

nickrudJoshPilcer, you're caught in that place where you need net to get net. I had the same problem with a vanilla windows install, until l got the right driver. That's probably your problem. What wifi chip do you have?06:35

nickrudPaddy_EIRE, yep, an extra $10/month :) But, we're off topic here06:37
Paddy_EIREnickrud, hehe06:38
kevdogJoshPilcer: Ok lets back up -- Is your wireless device internal, an external card or USB device?06:38
JoshPilcerBroadcom BCM94311MCG wlan mini-PCI... on my HP Pavilion dv600006:38
JoshPilcerit's internal06:38
bullgard4What programs evaluate the /etc/default/acpi-support file's content?06:38
Paddy_EIREJoshPilcer, why not use the internet from your other comp?06:38
JoshPilcerit's on that wifi network06:38
kevdogJoshPilcer: Have you installed any drivers for it?06:38
JoshPilcerya i installed the driver06:39
kevdogJoshPilcer: Does typing iwlist scan show you anything?06:39
gerber any free point of sales up there ?06:39
JoshPilcerit says interface doesn't support scanning for eth0 and lo06:39
kevdogJoshPilcer: Does lshw -C network show you unclaimed?  And as far as a driver -- I don't get it -- What did you install -- Are you using the STA or b43 module?06:40
crdlbynoj: that's RAOF, but he doesn't appear to be on irc at the moment06:40
maraboutkevdog:  if you wouldn't mind while I am waiting on the install. Can you tell me where I might have gone wrong on the install? Perhaps I did not specify I wanted the GUI or the text-based ALT CD leaves it off by default?06:40
Gautami have run lsb_release -a and it says No LSB modules are available06:40
Flannelgerber: there are.  Try lemonpos06:40

nickrudGautam, it says more06:41
FlannelGautam: Yes, but then it gives you your version info.  You're on Hardy, Ubuntu 8.0406:41
wastrelGautam: how about   cat /etc/issue06:41
kevdogmarabout: Its been a while since I've installed from the Alt-Cd but most likely you just chose the wrong option.  Don't worry about it too much!!!06:41
JoshPilcerwell when i typed lshw -C network it said my wifi card details06:41
Gautamyes it gives hardy06:41
gerberthis lemon work with ubuntu ?06:41
kevdogJoshPilcer: What driver?06:41
Paddy_EIREJoshPilcer, that does not mean it is installed though06:42
Gautamcat etc/issues gives ubuntu 8.04 \n\l06:42
kevdogJoshPilcer: driver is listed with lshw -C network06:42
Flannelmarabout: The default alternate CD will install a GUI.  Perhaps you have the server CD instead?06:42
ynojcrdlb: oh .. thanks .. wanted to consult him on one of his patches for evolution-sharp ..  any idea when he usually comes online ?06:42
maraboutkevdog: sounds good. Also since I have a wireless card do you think the drivers will be installed or will I need to do something 'extra'?06:43

Styx993how do i use multiple monitors with ubuntu?06:43
GautamIf i am hardy then what is it...is ubunutu is categorized more ?06:43

ynojcrdlb: thanks again .06:43
kevdogmarabout:  USB devices are the bane of the linux existance.  It really depends on the chipset.  If its a Ra chipset it will work out of the box.  If not like an atheros or broadcom, you will have to download and install drivers -- it depends06:44
dmsupermanGautam: That's it, you're either on hardy, or intrepid, or whatever06:44
dmsupermanGautam: You could use the specific release, 8.04.1, but that doesn't really matter06:44
maraboutFlannel: I am 99.9% sure I have the desktop. It is installing right now so I'll double check it when its done by putting it in another computer and looking at it06:44
wastrelGautam: ubuntu releases a new version every 6 months.  every release has a version number and a code name.   your version number is  8.04  (the year and month of release)  and code name for that version is "hardy"06:44
pha3zwhat version is "hardy" ?06:44
Flannelpha3z: 8.0406:44
Styx993lol until recently i was on 6.1006:44
kevdogJoshPilcer: Ok b43 is the driver you are using -- did you install the separate firmware of the driver (which is the closed source binary code)!06:45
maraboutkevdog: it is a netopia  3D Reach. I tried researching prior to the install but didnt get too much. I 'll throw my net out again and see what I get...06:45
JoshPilcerya i installed it through gksudo ndisgtk. and installed the inf file for the driver06:45
Gautamthanks Wastrel for this version info06:45
pha3zCan anyone tell me if Codeweavers Crossover software should work just as well on Ubuntu as it does on other Linux distros ( I'm pretty new to Linux)06:46
Paddy_EIREoh you used the windows driver JoshPilcer06:46
Paddy_EIREpha3z, yes it does06:46
kevdogJoshPilcer: Didn't install it right!!! If you did, the driver would be saying ndiswrapper and not b43-xxxxxxx06:46
pha3zthanks, paddy06:46
JoshPilcerwell how would i install it right?06:46
kevdogJoshPilcer: I dont mean to be a smartass - but did you search the forums?  This cover is topic in detail about 1 million times -- personally I've covered it well over 500 times06:47
bullgard4Does GNOME dodge the term 'file type association' and uses anther term instead?06:47
Styx993looks like xinerama might do the trick06:47
XavierWhere can I find information on which Nvidia cards are supported with ubuntu 8.10?06:47
Flannelkevdog: Please ditch the attitude.06:48
Styx993he is right, im a linux newb and ive heard of that problem a million times06:48
JoshPilcerwell i was talking to evowill and he told me to do it that way06:48

Styx993i have another question06:50
Dr_Willis_ZNCbullgard4,  i cant recall it ever mentiongint hat term.. it uses ' open with'  from what i can tell :)06:50
kevdogJoshPilcer: Type the following on separate line:  sudo rmmod ssb  sudo rmmod b43  sudo modprobe ndiswrapper Then tell me if lshw -C network gives you a driver06:50
bullgard4Dr_Willis_ZNC: I see.06:50
Styx993does x control the ttys (the alt+f1 through f9)?06:50
Dr_Willis_ZNCbullgard4,  it also is a bit odd how you set the default 'open with' stuff.. compared to other desktops/OS's :)06:50
Dr_Willis_ZNCStyx993,  No.  it does not.. it normally takes the frst free one . which is F7 normally06:51
Styx993k, thanks06:51
Styx993i just want to have a backup in case x goes asplode06:51
JoshPilcerit changed the configuration to: latency=006:51
kevdogJoshPilcer: Not following -- is a driver listed?06:52
bullgard4Dr_Willis_ZNC: GNOME has made a start with System > Preferences > Preferred Applications. But this program is limited yet in its scope.06:52

kevdogYou only need to blacklist modules once everything is up and running.  The blacklist file is read at boot and with particular modprobe invocations -- however not with bcm43xx by default -- all the blacklist stuff is window dressing07:04

As I seem to of [mistakenly] 'apt-get remove' it. Because it now says Users instead of my username, and when I click it, I don't get the list of Shutdown, Reboot, Logoff etc.07:10
