ubottuAvoid your questions being followed by a trail of "Please, help me", "Can nobody help me?", "I really need this!", and so on. This just contributes to making the channel unreadable. If you are not answered, ask again later; but see also !repeat and !patience00:00

rww!gksudo | lifenova00:05
ubottulifenova: If you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)00:05
lifenovarww: oops.00:06
Jack_Sparrowdreamy_, From cli / terminal type: fglrxinfo ...It should show: The program 'fglrxinfo' is currently not installed.00:06

_oaxrdz - hmm I do not know how mkfs.ext3 determines that a partition may be in use.  you could try strace-ing it to see what system calls it is doing before it gives that error00:09
rdz_oax, here the problem was: i had lvm2 setup to span to have one partition spannig two disks. one of them died. since then i am trying to get a similar setup again, but i fail at this early stage00:09

n8tuserObiXidO -> which channel are you using?00:30
bazhangfelixsulla, if the os starts up with the iso file loaded or the ubuntu cd inserted then it is an install, I suspect you never disabled one or the other00:30

rdz_oax, this is really a blocker, since it prevents me since two days to fix my server.... i would do it from a livecd if i would know how that works... there at least i can create a filesystem00:30
lifenovamib_1s4zr0: do you have any other programs open that are accessing that folder?00:30
bazhangleo, what is your real question00:31
n8tuserObiXidO -> which channel is your AP operating at? 1 to 11 ?00:31
mib_1s4zr0lifenova: which folder?00:31
lifenovamib_1s4zr0: /var/lib/dpkg/00:31
felixsullaSo, to make it a full install I'd want to disable the loading from ISO?00:31

mib_1s4zr0lifenova: yes i've close all terminal and source list.. but got this msg E: Read error - read (5 Input/output error) E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.00:32
_oaxrdz: but my approach would be to find out what makes the kernel think that a device is "in use" not allow it to be opened exclusively (i.e., with "O_EXCL")00:32
bazhangleo,  google translate00:32
rdz_oax, it's just that i am very surprised by this kind of problem..00:33
leook I will try that....00:33
lifenovamib_1s4zr0: can you post the exact contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list file on paste.ubuntu.com00:33
_oaxrdz: the kernel must keep a map of devices that are in use and who is using them.  the trick is getting that info out of the kernel.  fuser looked like the right approach, but it seems to apply to userland only.  "dmsetup" seems promising, did you try dmsetup info ?00:33

n8tuserrdz looking at my notes, its seems the sequence is  fdisk or sfdisk ; select the type 8e; write; then pvcreate; vgcreate; lvcreate adn then finally mkfs.ext3 /dev/mapper/vgName00:41
leoI Have tree program files in French and one in German I want to tranlate them so I can read them00:41
exodus_msleo: did you get that link?00:41
rdzn8tuser, that is absolutely correct, when wanting to setup lvm...00:41
rdzn8tuser, right now it fails at pvcreate time00:42
leoI know there is alot of places that will do it... I am wondering if Ubuntu has a program that will do it...00:42
leoYes i got it00:42
exodus_msleo: dude, I'm trying to help, did you check that link00:42
leothanx00:42
Jack_Sparrowleo, Fire up synaptic and search for a translation program00:42
_oaxrdz: hmm.  does dmsetup give you a way of making something "INACTIVE"  or does it give you any clue as to what is making it active?00:43
leoexodus_ms I am not mad at you thanx for your help I spent 8 hours in the forums and not one reply i am just a little cranky Thank you for your help....00:43
exodus_msleo: did you get the msg from Jack_Sparrow00:44
rdzn8tuser, after doing the fdisk part, i do: pvcreate /dev/sdb1 and then i get: Can't open /dev/hdb1 exclusively.  Mounted filesystem?00:44
_oaxrdz: you could try rmmod the dm (device mapper) modules, if you don't ahve any lvm2 running00:44
n8tuserrdz -> i dont know if you can do an  e2fsck to file check your existing lvm  before mounting it? am just wild guessing here now00:44
leoThanx Jack I will try that also...00:44
BCampbelli'm having issues w/Nvidia 177 & 173.  If I want to try 180.22 from the Nvidia website, I need to close X.  To do this -> sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop?  this should drop to a CLI and then once the install is run, do I restart gdm or reboot first?00:44
exodus_msleo: what are the files you are trying to read00:44
rdzn8tuser, however, i have the same problem when trying to mkfs.ext3 instead of a lvm00:44

rdzn8tuser, man thanks for your patience00:48
leoexodus_ms, Like this?00:48
exodus_msleo: thats it :)00:49
rdz_oax, special thanks to you for finding the cause of my trouiblees00:49

Deximindrape: yes, and checked it a million times... id hate to force you to look over the pastebin of it...04:21
mindrapeDexi - there is lots of online docs for eggdrop... it probably has logged onto a server and is waiting for you to talk to it via /msg  eggdrop communicates via IRC protocol, not telnet.04:21

unomiUsing configuration from /var/lib/noip2/noip2.conf   but that file is a binary file04:23
Ward1983unomi, aaaaaaaah ok now i get it04:23
mindrapeDexi - when you spawn the process it probably fails cause your hostname doesnt exist.... check the eggdrop.log for failures.  Also, did you log onto that IRC network and /whois the eggdrop bot?04:23
unomiyou shouldnt set anything in that yourself04:23
mindrapeDexi - if you think the name might have been taken when it logged on you can /who hostname-of-the-bot04:23
Ward1983unomi, so it jsut doesnt work then because its setup right04:23
xorlimn2diy: the system tray is basically a process just like any other process in the system. numerous things can go wrong with it so that it doesn't start automatically. then you either reboot the system (like you did) or launch the process manually (like I did 1 or 2 times in KDE).04:23

mindrapeDexi - I'd recommend strace.        sudo apt-get install strace04:25
xorlimn2diy: basically you want to find out the name of every process that does something to your desktop. if you know the name of the process, then you know the name of the binary or script used to start the process.04:25
mindrapethen strace ./eggdrop or however you launch it.04:25

I've tried /dev/audio[0-3] to no good effect, and /dev/dsp1 seems to work in terms of playback, but doesn't record to a file. I know the device is playing with Linux, as it works fine for audio and video on Skype. Any thoughts on finding out what device to use in VLC?04:35

Labudmindrape   do i do the fdisk -l   now?04:37
spillthe only negative is that all sudo fuctions will be unavaible when I truly just need to lockout dansguardian? any other thoughts.04:37
rdw200169spill: consequentially, you will also learn that you can give very finite rights to users as far as 'root' access is concerned, for example, you can give a specific user the ability to access a particular program as 'root' using sudo, and nothing else04:38
TQuidspill, sudo *might* allow you to give a negative permission but then someone can just do "sudo bash" and do as they like.04:38

spillright but su is super user and it asks for root password right? not the user password as sudo asks for.04:39
TQuidspill, as yourself you just do "sudo su <user>"04:39
nyaaspill: no su stands for either substitute user or switch user, if you use no arguments it assumes root04:39
TQuidThat lets you test their privileges, i think is what is being suggested.04:39

Ent[R]opyI've figured out how to connect to the ubuntu server webroot from a host OS to the Ubuntu Server guast OS in Virtualbox. One has to change a setting in Virtualbox.

Connecting to that ip will make the server work.04:43

JohninLexI have a simple question I hope, can thunderbird be set to receive mail from more than one email account05:14
nightrid3rnew_to_ubuntu-: system --> management --> synaptic05:14
Pandemic187My Internet connection is sooo slow and I can't figure out why. Someone tell me what's wrong!05:14
atom^xJohninLex: yes it can05:15
n8tuserPandemic187 -> did you pay for high speed access or low speed access?05:15
spilln8tuser: while, I guess I don't know what I'm looking for then?05:15
ChrisGibbsnew_to_ubuntu-: Do you need the latest and greatest?? Samba4 breaks certain compatibilites with Samba3 and print server functions05:15
rabzi cant get my logitech quickcam to run on aMSN. i have tried gspca source on the synaptic packages what should i do? is there something else in the synaptic packages i need to install?05:15

JohninLexthank you atom, sorry I was reading something that said it could not but I thought it could05:15
Pandemic187n8tuser: No, it's broadband. It should be decently fast but it's not. The thing is that I'm in college and it's fine on my roommate's laptop, but not on mine.05:15
sloopygrinn, and its ~/Documents05:16
blaqPandemic187: Sorry my ESP is a little off today. Why don't you tell us more about your internet connection, what sort is it, what you're using, what you've tried etc05:16
nightrid3rChrisGibbs: he doesn't even know how to install software so i doubt he needs samba405:16

Mimicattlesnake, this is mine: http://paste.ubuntu.com/107221/ see where it says Intel Wireless? It lists the model.  You could paste what you got, and we can tell you05:16
Pandemic187n8tuser: 97kbps downstream.05:16
nightrid3rnew_to_ubuntu-: samba 305:16
blaqPandemic187: usually colleges have wifi/ethernet. You're using broadband? Explain more please05:16
sloopygrinn, yes, 'do\ space\ like\ this\ in\ the\ terminal'05:16

blaqwhat sort of broadband05:17
blaqdo you plug into the wall?05:17
DasEi rebel_kid: yes , login <username>05:17
blaqis the wall socket a network socket or a phone socket?05:17
n8tuserPandemic187 -> what if the remote end dishing out towards you is slow? you can not do much about that..05:17
nightrid3r!samba | new_to_ubuntu-05:17

sloopygrinn, or you can type first 2-3 characters of directory name and hit 'tab'05:17
ravenor_How do you privately talk to the bot?05:17
grinnsloopy: even though the folder name is "My Documents"?05:17
rebel_kidDasEi, thats what i thought but i get No utmp entry.  You must exec "login" from the lowest level "sh"05:17
cattlesnakeMimi, I have nothing that says wireless interfact.05:17
Pandemic187n8tuser: But if what you are describing is true, wouldn't it be slow for my roommate as well?05:18
DasEiravenor_ :  /query ubottu05:18
sloopygrinn, ahh no, if you named it My Documents then no, default is usually 'documents'05:18
Pandemic187blaq: Wi-Fi and ethernet...but terribly slow.05:18
Pandemic187I mean both*05:18
sloopygrinn, err 'Documents'05:18
cattlesnakeMimi, I have network UNCLAIMED, network, and network DISABLED.05:18
Mimicattlesnake, oops05:18
n8tuserPandemic187 -> is it same site? so having multiple access to that remote site maybe putting on a priority basis ?05:18
blaqso you're plugged into the wall AND using wifi at the same time? or both of them are slow for you?05:18
DasEirebel_kid:you tried from remote ?05:18
Pandemic187n8tuser: Is what the same site? I ran speed tests in the same room.05:19
rebel_kidDasEi, no im on the machine. just apps -> terminal -> login <username>05:19
n8tuserPandemic187 -> its also possible your school is putting a cap on your accesses?05:19
blaqjump into a terminal and give me the output for ifconfig privately05:19
Mimicattlesnake,  I don't know what to do from now, but maybe this could be usefull: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=89077205:19
blaqwe'll start from the bottom and work up05:19
Pandemic187n8tuser: Nah. I've been using it for about 2 & 1/2 years now. This is something else.05:19
new_to_ubuntu-so samba-latest.tar.gz is Samba4?05:20
DasEirebel_kid:don't know then, just ried here and works05:20
n8tuserPandemic187 -> any recent updates?05:20
grinnsloopy: what exactly is this supposed to do?05:20
rebel_kidDasEi, thats odd, i really dont want to logout everytime i need to access psql as postgres05:20
Pandemic187n8tuser: It's just as slow on Windows as it is on Linux, for the record.05:20
nightrid3rnew_to_ubuntu-: forget tar.gz files, use the repos instread05:20
n8tuserPandemic187 -> okay, are your nameserver functioning ?05:20
sloopygrinn, what? the tab? it will complete the dir name with the \ in the appropriate places05:21
Pandemic187n8tuser: Is that an IRC thing? I'm not sure what nameserver means.05:21
new_to_ubuntu-ok05:21
blaqdoes anyone know where metacity keeps its log files?05:21
n8tuserPandemic187 -> nameservers is essential to your enjoyment of the internet05:22
blaqn8tuser, you're not helping05:22
new_to_ubuntu-next question, how to update the mozilla firefox?05:22
blaqnameservers wont make anything slow05:22
n8tuserPandemic187 -> kindly google for that word, nameserver and get some explanation05:22
blaqit will either make dns resolve or not05:22
Pandemic187Alright then05:22
n8tuserblaq -> speak for yourself, you dont understand if nameservers are down how can you resolve?05:22
ravenor_new_to_ubuntu-, should be automatic. If you mean from 2 to 3...05:22
nightrid3rnew_to_ubuntu-: synaptic05:22
blaqthat would make it not work altogether, not slow it down05:23
new_to_ubuntu-i mean from 3.03 which i currently have, to 3.05 from firefox website05:23
new_to_ubuntu-nightrid3r: what's synaptic? :)05:23
n8tuserblaq sure it will, if the 1st one is dead, and has to wait to resolve, before it uses the second one..get it?05:23
blaqsomehow he's connected to irc.freenode.net and i doubt he knew the ip address for freenode off the top of his head05:23
Mimicattlesnake,  sorry if someone has already mentioned this, but, is this a fresh install of ubuntu? If so, have you checked for restricted drivers? System ->Administration->Hardware Drivers05:23
new_to_ubuntu-is the sudo method called synaptic ?05:23
cattlesnakeThis is a fresh install, yes.05:24
disappearedngHey any1 here can recommend a Desktop search app that can crawl pdf and chm files? Google Desktop 's plugins are all exes and not applicable to the linux environemnt05:24
cattlesnakeAn hour fresh.05:24
nightrid3rnew_to_ubuntu-: system --> management --> synaptic , a software management tool05:24
nightrid3rnew_to_ubuntu-: firefox 3.0.5 is in there05:24
grinnsloopy: it say "ln: creating symbolic link `/home/grinn/My Dcouments': File exists" but i don't see anything05:24
blaqn8tuser, nameservers are listed as ip addresses. It's kinda hard to resolve a nameserver if you don't yet know the ip address of the nameserver05:24
nightrid3r!synaptic | new_to_ubuntu-05:24
ubottunew_to_ubuntu-: synaptic is Ubuntu's Graphical Package Manager. For a good howto see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticHowto05:24
Pandemic187n8tuser: So can you tell me how to check if my nameserver is functioning?05:24
cattlesnakeMimi, ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver is the only one I see.05:25
blaqPandemic187, it is functioning. I'll guarantee it05:25
disappearedngAny Good Desktop search app to reccomend that allows plugin?05:25
kernelHey ATI Grapich Card isn't good at linux?05:25
n8tuserblaq -> as an expriment, set your 1st  nameserver in your resolv.conf to something like 168.254.1.2  and the 2nd as your normal nameservers, see how much delay you get.. experiment and tell me05:25

quiksilverubuntu for that matter, i'm a new user and i'd love to learn all about linux/ubuntu05:26
blaqn8tuser, try not to be condescending. I'm a network admin for an isp, i know how nameservers work05:26

nightrid3rnew_to_ubuntu-: indeed :)05:27
nightrid3rquicksilver_: ubuntu unleashed 2008 edition05:27
n8tuserblaq well since you are an admin for an ISP, you know if one nameserver can not resolve, how long would it has to delay before it switches to your secondary nameserver?05:27
blaqPandemic187, the basic things that could affect your speeds (apart from general things that slow down your entire computer) are: MTU, NIC drivers, link stability05:27
quiksilvernobody knows an outstanding book on ubuntu?05:27

quiksilvernightrid3r: thanks05:27
grinnsloopy: yes05:27
sloopygrinn, it cant be the target of a link if it exists...05:28
blaqn8tuser, depends on the timeout of the connection, which would be on the order of 1-2 seconds before it realised the nameserver is down and switched to the other05:28

Pandemic187When things are going smoothly, that doesn't happen.05:29
blaqPandemic187, i'd say it's your wireless NIC then05:29
mindrapePandemic187: its probably router configs... you by chance using a Linksys?05:29
n8tuserblaq -> but it continually hitting the first nameserver yes? so adding up 1-2 second every address resolution? it adds up yes?05:29
Pandemic187mindrape: No, I'm using a university connection.05:29
Pandemic187blaq: But my wired connection is equally bad, though.05:29

Brack10eseven73:  I don't need something super duper lightweight, but vmware running 2 windows 2008 server and a vista box is really demanding on my poor little computer06:35
eseven73One thing nice bout ubuntu there's 1500 window managers in the repos to play around with :)06:35
nickrudtrancefat, that's for gnome/metacity/compiz06:35
Brack10eseven73: so how do I drop to CLI and launch another one? startx starts gnome of course06:36
eseven73i know the feeling Brack10 i got win xp running as we speak on vbox ose06:36
omid8bimonickrud: thanks but where should run that? i can't boot into ubuntu06:36
fromero691sheep_you got it man, thank you so much for your help it's now installing06:36
unomiim having some serious problems on a dell optiplex sx280, I rebooted and when it came up very little was working, I had to reinsert my mouse and keyboard to get them to work06:36
unominetworking had to be enabled via ifconfig06:37
nickrudomid8bimo, oh, no boot? you can boot the live cd, mount the hard drive, chroot into it and then reinstall the kernel06:37
eseven73Brack10: i use Icewm and fluxbox when I have my win XP VM running which is like almost 90% of the time :)06:37
unomithe system was working fine, except a little sluggish, so i rebooted06:37
omid8bimonickrud: okay got it. let me try, tanq06:37
nickrudomid8bimo, but I'm not sure how you got to this spot and what's really wrong with your system. Take my advice if it fits your situation06:37
Brack10eseven73: Ok if I use those instead of xfce will you tell me how to do it? :)06:38
eseven73Brack10: I can give you a few tips sure06:38
Brack10launch a separate wm from cli that is06:38
nickrudomid8bimo, don't use the linux-image-$(uname -r)06:38
omid8bimonickrud: sure :)06:38
unomiwhen i rebooted, i also went and tried hyperthreading, which *might* be a cause, not sure.06:38
__deuce__can someone help me install a wireless patch?06:38
unomiwhen i discovered the state of the system i rebooted and turned off hyperthreading again06:38
coolproanyone uses shoutcast?06:38
Brack10eseven73:  No I just need to know how to have gnome start with Ubnuntu, but have the ability to launch another window manager when needed from CLI06:38
eseven73Brack10: ive never done that before, I thought you meant from login06:39
nickrudomid8bimo, install linux-image-2.6.27-11-generic for the latest kernel06:39
__deuce__i keep getting "patch: **** Only garbage was found in the patch input"06:39
Brack10nah06:39
Brack10I know that' just an xorg.conf thing06:39
omid8bimonickrud: okay06:39
Brack10because I use vmware to run my test servers for my MS certs06:39
nickrudomid8bimo, assuming intrepid  (/me rapidly tries to cover all the bases and his backside)06:40
eseven73Brack10: I just do ctrl Alt Backspace and switch that way06:40
lavagolemkingThank you all for your help. I think it's pretty good for a safe return.06:40
unomialso, up arrow now fires 'screenshot'06:41
omid8bimonickrud: yes it is intrepid. the problem was i mistakely removed my /boot partition now i want to creat the /boot on the ubuntu / itself06:41
ravenor_Probably the wrong place to ask this... but has anybody taken OSX and put... something else on it? (Gnome/Xfce/KDE)?06:41
nickrudomid8bimo, ok, that should do it. you'll want to reinstall any video or other drivers you had, but do it after it boots correctly if possible06:41
Brack10I tried ctrl alt bkspace :)06:42
Brack10didn't work06:42

Brack10ok who was helping me with the switching wm thing?06:43
quiksilverhow do   i get back to my windows installation06:43
quiksilverwhen i installed ubuntu, it auto boots to ubuntu06:43
nickrudomid8bimo, oh, you'll want to reinstall grub as well06:43
homeskilletwoohoo i got wifi working06:43
quiksilverand when i press esc to go to the menu before it does, i only see ubuntu options06:44
kinja-sheepHow do you ssh into machines on your local network without using ip-address?  (using domain name instead... that is).  What do I need to install?06:44
Brack10quiksilver: did you do the guided install, use whole hard drive?06:44
homeskilletdns?06:44
quiksilveri forget which one i did06:44
quiksilveri remember it showing windows 25%06:44
omid8bimonickrud: i think too :)06:44
cilabskinja-sheep: u need the ip addr, or need to set up a domain name server06:44
quiksilverubuntu 75%06:44
nickrudkinja-sheep, add a reference in your /etc/hosts file, like     ip other-computer   where ip is the other computer's ip and other-computer is a name you want to reuse06:44
nickrudkinja-sheep, it'll start working as soon as you save the file06:45
__deuce__who here knows how to install driver patches? am having a bit of trouble06:45

quiksilverBrack10: is  windows gone?06:46
Brack10quiksilver: sounds like it may be gone06:46
Brack10quiksilver: how did you launch the install?06:46
__deuce__quicksilver: sounds like it06:46
quiksilvercd06:46
Brack10so you booted to cd from the bios?06:46
quiksilvercorrect06:46
kinja-sheepnickrud: That will work for a computer.  I'd like to be able to ssh in -- based on the connected machine (domain) rather than setting up because I find the IP address?06:46
Brack10quiksilver: and in the partitioning section you chose the default setting and ignored warnings?06:47
quiksilveri couldnt tell you06:47
quiksilveri kinda just guessed06:47
nickrudoh, outside network? or local?06:47
Brack10quiksilver: you probably killed windows then06:47
quiksilveri guess thats not a bad thing06:47
jigphello how to extra .bin? (ubuntu desktop 8.04)06:47
kinja-sheepnickrud: Local.  I see what you mean by /etc/hosts.  There are few lines there (localhost + my name). :o06:47
Brack10quiksilver: you need to read the warnings, specially the one that says "YOU WILL LOSE ALL OF THE DATA ON YOUR HARD DRIVE IF YOU PROCEED"06:48
conalhow can i set environment variables at login so that they'll be passed into processes i start from the desktop (rather than from a shell)?  i'm using .bashrc, which is conditionally loaded in .profile, but that trick isn't working for me.06:48
cilabskinja-sheep: see https://help.ubuntu.com/8.10/serverguide/C/dns.html06:48
quiksilverBrack10: everything is backed up, i'll be fine06:48
nickrudkinja-sheep, yep. That's the reaaaaalllllllyyyyyy  old way to identify computers, back in the day every machine had every machine in the world in that list :)06:48
albuntujigp: do you mean extract ?06:48
Brack10quiksilver: Oh ok you're good to go then06:48
Brack10quiksilver: you should stick with Ubuntu, Windows blows06:48
jigpalbuntu : yeah extract06:48
quiksilveryes it does.06:48
kinja-sheepnickrud: Lol.  Heh.  Time changes. :)06:49
Brack10*this opinion does not necessarily reflect those of canoical inc*06:49
Brack10or however you spell it06:49
nickrudkinja-sheep, so you could do  ssh kinja@other-computer , if it's ip is identified in that file, as yours is.06:49
albuntujigp: sudo ./nameofthefile.bin06:49
kinja-sheepcilabs: Thanks.  Will take a look.  This will only work on the computer with said "dns-related" packages installed?06:49
__deuce__what steps do I need to install a driver patch?06:49
bruenig__deuce__: what do you mean by driver patch06:50
cilabskinja-sheep: no.  it'll work with all the sys's on the network who are identified to the server06:50
kinja-sheepnickrud: Or I could stick with what I usually do -- Create an alias. :)06:50
MimiHiiiii...anyone know of dock like AWN, but I can put on the left (or right?) of the screen? Besides Cario (ew ew ew)06:50
nickrudkinja-sheep, yep. But then, you can reference that machine by name for any purpose.   http://other-computer, for example.06:50
__deuce__i have a patch that will allow wifi injections, needs installed and am having probs06:50
kinja-sheepcilabs:  Thanks.  I get the idea (server).  I'll bookmark it.  I think it's what I'm looking for. ;)06:50
nickrudkinja-sheep, but it's only an option, one of many06:50
__deuce__i keep getting "patch: **** Only garbage was found in the patch input"06:51
bruenig__deuce__: what is this supposed to be patching06:51
brueniga kernel module?06:51
cilabskinja-sheep: yes, nickrud's right.  its a fairly detailed process, and there are other ways around it.  the server option's the one i know when the netowrk is farily large and moves/adds/changes need to be tracked in a central place06:52

nickrudkinja-sheep, you still have to maintain the list. One place is convenient, but it's also easy to mess up. Something worth learning, though06:54
SkytracKanybody installed ubunta on a Asus eee box never used linux before so dont want to much hassle in setting it up advice needed thanks06:54
__deuce__bruenig: that is the driver, now that i reread it06:54
nickrudSkytracK, if someone's there, #ubuntu-eeepc is the place for advice06:55
SkytracKok thanks06:55
bruenig__deuce__: yeah so you need to download the source of the iwl driver, patch it with whatever file you got, then compile it as a module06:56
__deuce__bruenig: http://linuxwireless.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6/ sorry about the last link, this is the direct one06:56
__deuce__how do i compile it?06:56
albuntujigp: the bin file its an executable file and can not be extracted. you can execute it with this command : sudo ./home/snake/jigp/Documents/nameofthefile.bin if the name of your home folder is jigp06:56
unomiis there a way to restore my system to a previous state?06:56
bruenigoh it is all put together, the patched driver there?06:56
bruenig!compiling06:56
ubottuCompiling software from source? Read the tips at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompilingSoftware (But remember to search for pre-built !packages first)06:56
unomican i see which updates have been applied chronologically?06:56
nickrudunomi, grep installed /var/log/dpkg.log , and zgrep installed /var/log/dpkg.log.*.gz06:58
bruenigyou can't restore it to a previous state unless you have backups obviously, you can restore the packages you have installed to a previous state by simply removing the ones you have installed since that time and readding the ones you have deleted06:58
bruenigread the logs and have fun06:58
ChrisGibbsunomi: depends on how far back as well. Try /var/log/apt/ as well06:58
bruenigthis is not the same as restoring the system though because you may have changed configurations, etc.06:58
nickrudunomi, as you can gather, ubuntu doesn't use 'restore points'06:58

nite_johnboyI'am currently using a 16gb Corsair thumb drive picked up for a very good buy - not very much room left though - disk usage reports only about 8gb free - I really like this - it runs really fast and all - would like to pick-up a 32gb next - is there a brand other then Corsair anyone would recommend that would be cheaper but as reliable as the Corsair ? ?07:25
n2diyHas my user, I right click on the tool bar clock, but I can't adjust the date or time. I click on unlock, enter my user password, and fail authentication. What's up?07:25

jigpalbuntu : is there a know application to extract this bin?07:25
SlartFlynsarmy: then I don't know of anything07:25

paul68is there a way that I don4t have manually select my proxy at work and deselect it when I am connected at home07:26

Greencoat1982at least someone tell me of another room that could help then?07:27
nite_johnboyIs there a brand of 32gb thumb drive someone would recommend ? ?07:27
SlartGreencoat1982: have you read the documentation for samba?07:27
paul68miranda_psi: I guess so since its a http proxy here at work07:27
tsai0Slart: , rww: did you get flash working without a lot of reworking.  I had Debian 64bit installed before and flash was my biggest issue like a year and a half ago.07:27
transporter_rww: http://paste.ubuntu.com/107241/07:27
Slarttsai0: yes07:27
Greencoat1982yes, and I can't figure it out, trust me this is always the last place I look for help07:27
rwwtsai0: Flash worked fine for me. Just had to sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree07:27
chalcedonyI've forgotten KDE setting up, been so long ... where do you change the colour and outline of the desktop text under the icons? there is a foreground and background, normally white on black07:27

=== Dexi is now known as Guest83387
SlartGreencoat1982: hmm.. then I can't really help you further, sorry07:28
rwwtransporter_: Okay. What happens when you do "cairo-clock -t simple" (for example)?07:28
Greencoat1982I had it set up nicely before so that I could just network into the desktop and watch my content,07:28
SlartGreencoat1982: although I can tell you that samba is the way to go, afaik07:28
rwwGuest83387: I know what it is, yes.07:29
transporter_rww: should i copy paste that?07:29
Greencoat1982is there a samba channel?07:29
Guest83387er07:29
paul68miranda_psi: now I have to go to system prefs and network proxy to adapt these manually07:29
rwwtransporter_: type cairo-clock -t simple in a terminal, yes07:29
Guest83387dammit how did i end up as a guest07:29
keppiGreencoat1982:  yes07:29
SlartGreencoat1982: not sure.. ##samba or #samba perhaps07:29
jigpalbuntu : ok what application to choose?I tried k3b but no luck07:29
tsai0rww: , Slart:  Thanks, that anwers my question.. Hmm?  I wonder if I create a new partition, can I somehow migrate the home folder from the 32bit partition?07:29
=== Guest83387 is now known as Dexi
rwwGuest83387: I assume you didn't identify with nickserv07:29
TaliaHere's a question for anyone!!!07:29
rwwDexi: see above07:29
Dexihaha rww yeah that was it07:29
Slarttsai0: yes, you can just copy the files to a new partition.. make sure to not overwrite that new partition with something else though07:30
rwwtsai0: You can just move the files across after setup, yeah. Or do something like !separatehome07:30
transporter_rww i can see the clock07:30
albuntujigp: i dont know an aplication.  it should execute normally with the commands i gave you before07:30
rww!separatehome | tsai007:30
ubottutsai0: Your home folder is where all of your personal files are usually kept. For moving your home folder to a separate partition, please see: http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/separatehome07:30
Dexirww: when i run it with -n it runs fine, but without -n it wont connect to the server and i cant telnet in07:30
rwwtransporter_: Okay, so it works if you specify a theme with -t?07:30
nite_johnboytsai0; It was really easy - just booted to a live Ubuntu CD and went to System/Administration/Create a USB startup disk - I was trying to do this with a 8gb USB and it would not work - picked up 16gb today and everything installed wonderful - that's what I'm running from right now.07:30

useruseruserusertsai0: bye bye07:31
rwwtransporter_: Okay. Well, either pick a theme and run it with a -t switch, or figure out which part of your cairo-clock or cairo configuration is broken.07:31
miranda_psipaul68: do you actually use anything other than firefox at work? if not then give foxy proxy a go - don't know anything for system wide...07:31

rdw200169paul68: hey, you too07:33

rdw200169Greencoat1982: have you tried the fix from the last post?07:34
ik_hallo everyone07:35
rwwtransporter_: Okay, then I doubt it's a permissions thing. As I said, something in your cairo configuration in your home foder is probably broken, and running as root is using root's cairo configuration, hence it working. I doubt it's a permissions issue, or many more people would be having it.07:35

miranda_psipaul68: for firefox you could use foxy proxy, and use say pidgin at home and empathy at work (not ideal, but a workaround...)07:35
rwwtransporter_: uninstalling and reinstalling doesn't remove the cairo configuration stuff in your home folder.07:35

Greencoat1982rdw200169 it just said no application is set to handle07:36
rwwmountx: As far as I know, there's no fix for that, unfortunately. The fglrx driver has problems with compiz+video and compiz+gaming, and the usual solution is to temporarily disable compiz while watching videos or gaming.07:36
transporter_rww: please think of something (brb)07:36
rdw200169Greencoat1982: i don't know, that's the best I found... personally I avoid Samba and Windows file sharing at all costs, it's just a pain, even on windows!07:37
rdw200169Greencoat1982: did you know that Vista can't even file share with XP???07:37
rwwtransporter_: figure out which part of your cairo configuration is broken. heck, delete the cairo settings in your home folder if that isn't too inconvenient. As I've said already, I don't use cairo, and I /can't/ use it right now, so I can't diagnose it further.07:37

doserydermountx: since you're on the topic of ssh with the other dude, I can't remember what/where file contains the "banner" (i.e. the message banner, when the client FIRST login)08:16
mountxlemme check08:16
doseryderyou know what I'm talking about tho right?08:16

alexandrooshello I'm going to install kubuntu 8.04 lts from the internet with the minimal cd, does it come with kde 4.1.4?08:18
unomimountx: while you are there, can you tell me whats in your /etc/network/interfaces file?08:18
alexandroosops sorry for repeating08:18
mountxi can tell you that auto lo08:18
rwwdoseryder: that banner thing is at /etc/motd; location is configurable in sshd configuration.08:18
mountxiface lo inet loopback08:19
unomiweird, no mention of eth0 ?08:19
mountxnope .. never seen that on a lin install .. maybe just me though08:19
unomialexandroos: http://www.kubuntu.org/news/8.04-release08:19
doseryderaight cool.   I totally forgot.08:19
rwwalexandroos: Kubuntu Hardy comes with KDE 3.something, if I remember correctly. Intrepid has 4.108:20
rebel_kidi remember a program to enable the mouse in cli (to facilitate easy copying/pasting of text) i cant find the package name, can anyone point me to it08:20
rwwunomi, mountx: /etc/network/interfaces only has lo in it by default, because NetworkManager deals with eth0 and other interfaces. You can add eth0 if you want it to be managed by ifup/ifdown08:20
unomirww well networkmanager has stopped working for some reason08:21
mountxi don't use networkmanager08:21
mountxdoes that make a diff?08:21
rwwunomi: feel free to add an eth0 stanza if you want. The configuration format is in "man interfaces"08:21
unomialexandroos: http://www.kubuntu.org/news/8.10-release it has 4.1.208:21
unomiits weird its just stopped working though08:22

arch3angelWalterMundt: how did you do it08:42
rwwsrx2002: personally, I'd recommend sbackup08:42
WalterMundtarch3angel: disable the atheros driver in the hardware thingy, install a backports-modules package (not ure of the exact name), reboot08:42
rww!sbackup | srx200208:42
ubottusrx2002: sbackup is a tool to create complete and/or incremental backups (which can be scheduled to be automatic, and can be done over a network). It is available in !Universe08:42

WalterMundtbasically, you need to install linux-backports-modules-[your version] from Synaptic08:44

WalterMundtarch3angel: yours is different, but since the driver you switch to from that process is called "ath5k" I thought it might help you08:45
arghh2d2srx2002: its not much, you just need to spend 30 minutes learning about 'grub'08:45

gamla_kossanwhuffor: well, you obviously miss the openssl package =)10:29
rdw200169mountx: you know, our target audience...10:29
gamla_kossanwhuffor: try apt-get install openssl openssl-devel10:30

mountxrdw200169, yes yes yes10:31
zirodayPhotoguy: IIRC, yes10:31
quibblerMilk_Rulz, after you extract you have to go to the directorty where it is extract to and continue with make etc10:31
zirodaywhuffor: that should handle most of the dependancies10:31
PhotoguyIIRC?10:31
