Dr_willisOnidemo,  with ati cards. normally they use the 'ati' or 'fglrx' drivers - ati is the included/open source driver that does not fully support all features.. but it should work for most all cards.  I dont have any ati cards any more. So im not sure what the 9600 needs.00:34

Absolute1Will a fresh installation of 8.10 be any different than an upgrade from an 8.4 installation?01:13
IndyGunFreakGerinych: follow the "quick start" instructions..  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows?action=show&redirect=RestoreGrub01:13
cweigleDoes anyone know of a map editor for OpenArena that runs on linux?01:13
letalisyeah i thought there had to be a way to do it, ive even used that before but i havent done it in so long that i forgot about it LOL01:13
jslootbeekAbsolute1: no, other than you losing your personal data01:13
Rencx<ortsvorsteher> hi can i save my data when i make new install?01:14
Absolute1jslootbeek: Why would personal data be lost?01:14
PC_Nerdhow do I make sure that ALL devices are unmountedd, because gparted gives the error: "Please unmount any logical partitions having a number higher than 5"      I dont beleive I have any filesystems mounted, thanks.01:14
IndyGunFreakPC_Nerd: are you doing this from a live CD?01:14
Gerinychindygunfreak: if i boot ubuntu from a live cd, does the system recognize the cd as a hard drive?01:14
jslootbeekAbsolute1: if you do a fresh install, it will generally format your harddrive, if you don't do that it's not really a "fresh" install, so it would be an upgrade01:14
PC_Nerdsort of - live USB01:14
IndyGunFreakGerinych: no, just follow the instructions01:15
rdw200169Absolute1: not really, though it generally makes for a cleaner system to do a fresh install.  one point, though.  either mount your /home on a separate partition, or back it up before you start fresh, if that's what you decidee01:15
jslootbeekAbsolute1: unless your personal data is on external storage, ofcourse01:15
Absolute1jslootbeek: sorry didn't understand what you meant. :)01:15
PC_NerdIm attempting to wipe everything except sda1 and sda7, move sda7 to sda2 and reallocate the remaining 60gb to ubuntu.01:15
PC_Nerd* on a fresh ubuntu install01:15
jslootbeekAbsolute1: no worries01:15
rdw200169Absolute1: because your /home stores just about 99% of the wacky GUI configurations you've made, among other user-specific things01:15
IndyGunFreakPC_Nerd: depending on the size of those partitions, that will take an enormous amount of time01:15
rdw200169Absolute1: i've had the same /home for 3 years without a problem, across every upgrade, or fresh install01:16
PC_NerdIndyGunFreak: time isnt the issue, the "Please unmount any logical partitions having a number higher than 5" is the main issue.01:16
Gerinychindygunfreak: well then i'm getting stuck on the find /boot/grub/stage1 part, i got 2 results and i don't know which one to use01:16
Absolute1I just installed a 8.4 installation, i didnt have the 81001:16
rdw200169Absolute1: it always remembers my panel setup correctly for example01:16
Absolute1and now i am upgrading01:16
IndyGunFreakGerinych: what are the results?01:16
Absolute1rdw200169: well all that is in your .gnome dir01:16
jslootbeekAbsolute1: if you havn't really done anything, an upgrade shouldn't hurt.01:16
Gerinychindygunfreak: (hd1,0), (hd2,0)01:16
woltersamba is not finding some windows xp machines on my network... what should i do?01:16
Absolute1that will stay the same on any distro as well01:16
PC_NerdI need to make sure that the data from sda1 and sda7 arent deleted, but i have backups in case.01:16
rdw200169Absolute1: yeah, but the other . directories do stuff too, like .gconf01:17
IndyGunFreakGerinych: you have two hard drives, correct?01:17
wolterthey can find each other, but i can't find them from my ubuntu machine01:17
jslootbeekAbsolute1: chances are, if you've made lots of customizations, upgrades will probably break something01:17
Absolute1upgrade takse 40 minutes :(01:17
Gerinychindygunfreak: yes01:17
Absolute1install takes 1001:17

jslootbeekkenalex: IMO Intel has better virtualization support if you're planning on using KVM. I havn't done much AMD work, though, so my opinion might be moot.01:18
PC_NerdI just ran "sudo umount /dev/sda*" and all partitions are not mounted, however it still says that partitions higher than 5 are mounted.01:18
Rudd-OMK13: aptitude clean I think01:18
rdw200169KenBW2: ah, but i don't like Opera01:18
MK13kk, thnx01:18
Gerinychindygunfreak: not even sure, when i got the error, i used "setup (hd0)" command01:19
KenBW2rdw200169: terrible01:19
rdw200169KenBW2: i've tried it, so don't hate!01:19
rdw200169KenBW2: i like firefox more01:19
IndyGunFreakGerinych: which obviously isn't right.. i'd try hd101:19
KenBW2rdw200169: what's to not like?01:19
_Vi_operas nice just not enough extensions like firefox :)01:19
cweigleDoes anyone know of a map editor for OpenArena that runs on linux?01:19
KenBW2rdw200169: although i dont like its closed source-ness01:20
PC_Nerd*** It appears that swap space was "mounted" so i had to remove it to remove "lower" partitions01:20
rdw200169KenBW2: this is a debate that has no end, so let's stop01:20
KenBW2rdw200169: good plan01:20
linuxhey this is the ubuntu irc chat right?01:20
Flannellinux: This is the Ubuntu support channel, yes.  Chat is in #ubuntu-offtopic01:20
_Vi_!welcome | linux01:20
ubottulinux: Welcome to #ubuntu - the Ubuntu support channel.01:20
linuxthank you01:21
linuxhey i got a few questions01:21
KenBW2linux: speak and they shall be answered (maybe)01:21
cweigleI guess not01:21
linuxwell first what can i program in ubuntu and with what programs can i do it with01:22
linuxi know c++ and lua programing for the psp01:22
rdw200169linux, you mean what programming languages are available?01:22
Flannellinux: Of course you can.  There's a few IDEs available, and you can also use regular text editors, etc.01:22
Gerinychindygunfreak: so where would i get the source for installing grub?01:22
rdw200169linux, pretty much everything, from assembly to python, to qt, to c, to mono01:22
ratpoisonHello! anybody know what this http://pastebin.com/m69cc4e49 is? 8.10 amd64 user. Symptoms are: system doesn't shut down properly, nautilus crashes and won't launch and dvds won't mount (the pastebin is the output of dmesg | tail) also, on launchpad https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/27608801:22
linuxok explain IDE more info about them01:22
IndyGunFreakGerinych: you don't need the source, you need to follow the instructions on the link i gave you01:23
rdw200169linux, you really gotta dig to find one that *isn't* supported01:23
_Vi_VI :) with plugins :)01:23
rdw200169linux, heck you can even do java01:23
jslootbeekratpoison: initial glance looks like a harddisk problem01:23
THE_THUNDER_LORDhey does anyone use Gnucleus here???01:23
linuxok well can i use Kdevelop to make psp games?01:23
linuxjava FTW lol01:23
jslootbeekratpoison: or even your IDE link01:23
DaveWanyone know a solution to this problem? eek> Absolute1: if you do a fresh install, it will generally format your harddrive, if you don't do that it's not really a "fresh" install, so it would be an upgrade01:23
rdw200169linux, well, i don't know anything about lua, but a quick google search should solve your problem01:23
THE_THUNDER_LORDhey does anyone use Gnucleus here???01:24
ratpoisonjslootbeek: IDE? but... it's SATA01:24
jslootbeekratpoison: that's what i meant01:24
jslootbeekratpoison: sorry it's late...i should learn to read..:)01:24
rdw200169linux, keep in mind that linux, and unix, have some of the best *free* programming IDE's on earth01:24
jslootbeekratpoison: have you tried a different CD/DVD drive?01:24
Gerinychindygunfreak: yeah, but when you use the root command, you set the source of stage1 file and everything else related to that, right?01:24
linuxok well what about psptoolchain thats the hardest thing to install without getting hella errors01:25
ratpoisonjslootbeek: I don't have one available. But it seems unlikely that both DVD drives will fail, no?01:25
MK13who here was asking about openarena?01:25
rdw200169linux, sorry, i know *nothing* about that!01:25
IndyGunFreakGerinych: i really have no idea what you're talking about needign the source code for grub, i've used the live cd to reinstall grub many times w/ those instructions w/ no problem.. thats all i can tell you'01:25
jslootbeekratpoison: yeah, if it's both do you have motherboard diagnostics available?01:25
linuxrdw200169 its cool01:26
Gerinychindygunfreak: no, not the source code, the source of files used to boot grub01:26
_Vi_anyone seen Onetinsoldier? he hasnt been around in like a month01:26
IndyGunFreakGerinych: if you're not gonna follow the instructions, then i can't help you01:26
_Vi_sorry that was OT01:26
jslootbeekratpoison: when did you start noticing the problem? after a kernel update, or just out of the blue?01:26
rdw200169linux forgive me, but that is one darn *obscure* request, not many people out there programming for the PSP out there in the open source community ;)01:26
cappicardanyone else getting "unable to enumerate usb device" in 2.6.28 with no keyboard response? I'm at my wit's end01:27
ratpoisonjslootbeek: I think it was right there from the start I just reproduced it and pinpointed it only recently01:27
rdw200169linux, that I know of anyway, now if you want to know about Python, or C, or something more mainstream, much more help can be found!01:27
linuxrdw200169 yea but what all could i do with IDE's01:27
ctlabslinux:  google psptoolchain & ubuntu -- tons of help, like   http://forums.maxconsole.net/archive/index.php/t-69699.html01:27

Abed guys i have a quick question, when i was using fedora and its terminal when i run a command for example ls -l and when i select a certain line , i could drag and drop it but not anymore on ubuntu's so can i anyone help01:27
Gerinychindygunfreak: i'm kind of trying to follow the instructions, but the "find" command returns 2 results and i dont know which one to use01:27
jslootbeekratpoison: hmm, tough to troubleshoot over IRC, i unfortunately don't have SATA optical drives myself01:28
rdw200169linux, that's a pandora's box, there are more options than I can care to list, but the biggest ones off the top of my head are eclipse, emacs, and the venerable Vim01:28
IndyGunFreakGerinych: and i told you, try hd1, and if that doesnt work, try the other one01:28
linuxctlabs man im not gonna try psptoolcain theres like a 80% chance of getting an error and a 20% cance of success01:28
GoneWestCoastAbed: I don't believe Ubuntu's implemented that version of terminal yet.01:28
Gerinychindygunfreak: oh, i thought you said try hd1 in the "setup" command01:28
_Vi_drag and drop text? O.o new one on me sounds cool though01:28
AbedGoneWestCoast mmm damn it thnx though01:29
ratpoisonjslootbeek: ok, thnx for the effort, though01:29
ari_stresswhat, GoneWestCoast is here? :)01:29
jslootbeekratpoison: have you tried installing 2.6.27-9-generic fromm intrepid-updates?01:29
rdw200169linux I use Vim, then again, i like the dark utilitarian nature of a good text editor with all the features you could possibly want available from the keyboard as opposed to drop down menus and the like01:29
GoneWestCoastari_stress: Oh, I'm lots of places. :-p01:29
ratpoisonjslootbeek:  updates / backports are enabled01:29
ctlabslinux: besides kdevelop you can use Eclipse, which supports java, python, c/c++ etc01:30
linuxrdw200169 ok what language do you program in?01:30
ratpoison2.6.27-11-generic is my uname -r output01:30
rdw200169linux I prefer Python01:30
jslootbeekratpoison: ok, i would take it to the #ubuntu-kernel channel01:30
ratpoisonok, thnx01:30
rdw200169linux then again, i don't do a lot of programming, mostly a lot of high-level scripting which Python is best suited for01:30

rdw200169linux, you just run them, Python creates binaries, but they're more for quicker code execution; for example, Civilization IV uses Python for a lot of the UI and AI elements to allow users more MOD capabilities since the files don't get compiled and turned into binary garbage01:33

linuxrdw200169 the IDE is called eclipse right?01:36
rdw200169linux, well i was only giving an example, Python is OS independent, so you can use it in windows or linux01:36
IndyGunFreakxubuser: why not just google instructions to get that device working w/ slax?01:37
linuxrdw200169 ok hey thanks for the help :)01:37

scuniziAceBlade258, nvidia gforce are there.. which version?  as for X-Fi at some point maybe..01:49
_Vi_sellyoursoul: sudo cp /home/sellyoursoul/file /media/disk/   shoudl do it (Assuming /media/disk/ is your external)01:49
kdubuatec: find help in #alsa01:49
\kirasellyoursoul: what does it do?01:49
AceBlade258then is there any way to make it use closed source01:50
sellyoursoulthanks _vi_01:50
\kirasellyoursoul: errors? Does it have the desktop icon?01:50
BCampbellsellyoursoul, insttall ntfs-config it should allow you to set write permissions very easily01:50
vigoVaxNam: what version?01:50
MK13redvamp128: but i can still choose the old entries and boot just fine01:50
sellyoursoullet me try vi's tip01:50
_Vi_sellyoursoul: oh wait its NTFS?01:50
redvamp128That is the point01:50
AceBlade258scunzi: when i boot mine it says "Ubuntu is rinning in low graphics mode"01:50
sellyoursoulyes, ntfs01:50
redvamp128MK13:  that is the point of why--01:50
BCampbellAceBlade258, you just install the drivers after install...same as Windows01:50
poseidonanyone know what apt-get is written in?01:51
VaxNamVigo: Of ubuntu? How would I find out, Easy Peasy really didn't tell me what version I had.01:51
MK13redvamp128: is it safe to remove the old entries after you know the update is correct?01:51
redvamp128sellyoursoul:  have you installed-- in synaptic ntfs-3g?01:51
redvamp128MK13:  for me I remove all but the last 201:51
sellyoursoulredvamp128, yes i have01:51

\kira!hi | amadeobellotti01:52
ubottuamadeobellotti: Hi! Welcome to #ubuntu!01:52
AceBlade258BCampbell: there is the problem, when i boot it gives me the low graphics mode message, then when i tell it to continure anyway it restarts the graphics adapter and crashes01:52
amadeobellottii was wondering if i could get some help01:52
_Vi_sellyoursoul: have you tried samba?01:52
redvamp128MK13:  Though you have to sudo gedit and then open the file to edit it01:52
\kira!ask | amadeobellotti01:52
ubottuamadeobellotti: 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. :-)01:52
AceBlade258(i got it working once before)01:52
vigoVaxNam: uhm ok,,let me look up easy peasy01:52
sellyoursoulno, but i'll make a note of samba01:52
BCampbellAceBlade258, which nvidia card and which driver?01:52
VaxNamVigo: 8.1001:53
amadeobellottiok cool so my laptop battery isnt charging all the way the last charge was only 3.8 Wh where the designed was for 88 wh01:53
VaxNamVigo: its a netbook remix distro01:53
sellyoursoulbahhh!  do i need to use an underscore in files names where there are spaces in the file name?01:53
AceBlade258GeForce 8800GTS, and any that works, the last time i got it working took me two hours and the driver version was 17701:53
redvamp128sellyoursoul:  it does not let you write to it but does the system see it01:53
AceBlade258i would like to use 18001:53
IndyGunFreakVaxNam: that command should still work in a terminal, but i believe ubuntu nbr is based on 8.04 Hardy01:53
BCampbellAceBlade258, what stopped it from working?01:53
Jpdotahi, i have several users of debian and/or ubuntu on my LAN, and i would like to set up an apt-cacher to conserve bandwidth.  is there any way to set one up on a non-debian-based computer?  my router is the only computer constantly on and it runs openbsd, so i'd like to set it up on that01:53
_Vi_sellyoursoul: ok, theres a few GUI for samba that you can use too, just look in synaptic for samba, i think one is called swat,01:54
jams44How do I view my Hardware Specs? Is there an easy way to view info like mobo, RAM, chipset and what not?01:54
sellyoursoulredvamp:  yes.  i can copy files from the drive also.  just not write to it, it seems01:54
scuniziAceBlade258, the 177 driver is not the best.. the 180.xx direct from nvidia works much better.01:54
redvamp128sellyoursoul:  and which version of Ubuntu 8.04 or 8.1001:54
sellyoursoulxubuntu 8.0401:54
_Vi_that's what i have01:54
redvamp128you could try opening it up as sudo natilus01:54
BCampbellscunizi, 180.22 crashed my system..but it may just be me01:54
linuxdoes anyone here use ubuntu IDE eclipse?01:54
sellyoursouli like it, i just don't know how to do much yet01:54
redvamp128Though to note-- DO NOT WRITE TO YOUR OWN SYSTEM01:54
AceBlade258scunzi: i think you told me that last time, never got the chance to try01:54
_Vi_redvamp128: gksudo01:54
BCampbellsellyoursoul, "sudo apt-get install ntfs-config"  should fix your problem01:55
sellyoursoulwhat is gk in gksudo?01:55
Jpdotalinux: yes01:55
AceBlade258my brother took the liberty of reformatting my linux partition through windows01:55
_Vi_sellyoursoul: dont use sudo with graphical stuff01:55
VaxNamIndyGunFreak: It did work, I found the distro. It's 8.10. I'm just trying to remove the start up "Install" application from boot.01:55
VaxNamAlso for Vigo01:55
ubottuIf 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)01:55
redvamp128ubottu:  gksudo01:55
vigoVaxNam: Okay, is at sourceforge, is not an official Ubuntu package, but heck, back-up, re-install01:55

blinghow do i edit the properties of a launcher?01:56
linuxjpdota: ok well um how do i use it?01:56

IndyGunFreakVaxNam: try this.. open a terminal type "gnome-session-properties" no quotes, hit enter, and then find what you don't want to load at startup, and uncheck it.01:56
Jpdotalinux: Applications --> Programming --> Eclipse or type eclipse in the command line01:56
BCampbellAceBlade258, when restarting..can you choose the option to use default graphic setting as apposed to low graphics mode01:57
amadeobellottiok cool so my laptop battery isnt charging all the way the last charge was only 3.8 Wh where the designed was for 88 wh. what would cause this, and how do i fix it01:57

marinenightrid3r,  ut that isn't adding or hanging anything the my system in other words it's a demo version02:59
mindrapeluke_         sudo iwconfig        make sure a device has wireless extentions.              sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid YOURAPNAME                  sudo dhclient wlan0                      (if you have WEP or WPA you need to also use iwconfig to set those parameters)02:59
mindrapeafter you iwconfig and set the essid you can issue              sudo iwconfig             again and if the access point on the 2nd line shows a MAC address then you are good.02:59
nightrid3rmarine: yes so you kan use gparted to work on your disks02:59
mindrapethat means you are associated.  if not then likely your driver is bunk and you will need to get a new one...02:59
mindrape2 good links for wireless:  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=5693578   and    http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Download#DownloadlatestLinuxwirelessdrivers (2nd one is preferred choice if you use ath9k driver)03:00

dal_workhey all, having some problems with hibernate on my laptop running ubuntu. It was working but then freezing a few minutes after resuming. I thought the problem might have been the fact that the swap partition was smaller than the amount of memory in the machine, so I increased its size, but now it appears to hibernate (lots of disk activity after hitting hibernate before it turns itself off) but when turning it back on it will only do a norm03:03
dal_workal boot. The UUID of the swap partition appears to have changed when I increased its size, not sure if that's relevant.03:03
marinenightrid3r, i understand that but when i check  it now the full go gigs are avaiable when i used the demo version it had used 1.37 gigs of space03:03

dal_workn8tuser, thats done, it wasn't using the swap partition immediately after I resized it but it is now, it still appears to write the hibernate image then doesn't look for it when I turn the machine back on03:05
exodus_msbluelightningvid: that last ffmpeg link will help with the install here is more info --> http://ffmpeg.org/03:05
tienhello there03:06
marinenightrid3r,  i don't want to make this difficult but i just checked with partition editor and it's smaller than i first made it03:06
dal_workn8tuser, I seem to remember some text being displayed when it resumed from hibernate (when hibernate was sort of working) along the lines of "using resume image" or "looking for resume image, can't find it, doing normal init" - there's nothing like that now03:06
tienCan I run "picasa" in Ubuntu03:06
nightrid3rmarine: has to do with the blocksize03:06
ubottuPicasa from Google can be downloaded in .deb format from: http://picasa.google.com/linux/download.html03:06
mindrapetien - when you get it      dpkg -i thefile.deb        (that installs deb files that you get NOT via apt-get)03:07
marinenightrid3r, ok so like you said just use the first option and then format to03:07
daniequyin: "root(hd0,1)" what does it means the ",1"?03:07

emmajrib, tritium, yes there's something there but it does not say anything.03:12
marinenightrid3r, the other thing i noticed is with windows i had aout 22 programs running in the background via windows manager and here i have about 40 programs03:12
nightrid3rmarine: linux uses ram for buffering stuff but will clear it as needed03:12
tritiumzopiac: d-printer?  Do you mean a parallel port?03:12

ubottubrunner: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes03:17
elashishmarine, if your system is out of RAM, then the machine will start using swap - as long as swap is empty, you have enough memory available03:18
marinenightrid3r,  i have 4 gigs so it's not a big deal03:18
emmamindrape: that did it. You are quite good.03:18
spaw1how do i reset my password or see it?03:18

jeeves_Mosswhat would cause an almost 1second ping?03:18
emmamindrape: I'm surprised that there is no gui app by default on the desktop for doing that though.03:18
mindrapespaw1 - crack your /etc/shadow file            or login to single user mode (root) and        passwd YOURUSER03:19
liquidjeeves_Moss about 500ms of latency both ways03:19
unopspaw1, you can't view your password.03:19
tonsofpcs[biabia]: ask the system administrator03:19
mindrapeemma - there should be... network-manager pops up on my laptop install (I turned it off on my desktop though)03:19

tonsofpcswe will not help you break security systems03:19
marineNomexous, i was just comparing windows memory usage to linux03:19
emmamindrape: network-manager does have an icon in my system tray but it seems to have no content in it.03:19
mindrapeemma - System -> Preferences -> Sessions -> add network-manager to your startup list03:19
jeeves_Mossliquid, thanks professor.  I know that.  I've been having issues since the last update about a week ago.  even local on my LAN @ home, we're not doing much better than 200K/sec03:20
n8tuser2emma -> sudo iwlist wlan0 scan03:20
mindrapemaybe its not network-manager... lemme see if I can find it.03:20
emmamindrape: everything is greyed out except for VPN Connections >03:20
marinenightrid3r, i know windows need swap as linux does not and hasn't used any on my linux side yet03:20
Nomexousmarine: Determining memory usage in Linux is kinda tricky. You might want to google it to see for yourself.03:20
mindrapeemma - if you right-click on it you may have to choose Enable networking03:20
jribmindrape, emma: nmapplet shows it for me, but it should be displaying them by default if the card works03:20

bravo7plytheman for ff03:22
mindrapeIts_me: plug them in and using your ps2 keyboard (you have one, right?)  type lsusb03:22
emmai have the nmapplet showing up in the gnome panel at the top. And networking and wireless are both enabled - indeed, the laptop is on the internet right now -- but what is funny to me is that there is no list of 'available networks' in this gui.03:22
spaw1i need some one on one help with make && install03:22
elashishjeeves_Moss can you revert to the state before the update03:22
emmawithout a list of available networks it might be hard, when roaming with the laptop to know what to get on to.03:23
jribemma: what ubuntu version?03:23
Its_me<mindrape> Yes03:23
mindrapeemma - it shows them for me... if you walk around, based on the beacon timing of each router, it will update.03:23
bravo7plytheman ff03:23
emmajrib: 8.1003:23
scunizimindrape, might also be a bios setting for Its_me03:23
liquidjeeves_Moss Do you know what update(s) you installed?03:23
marinenightrid3r, windows is not even close to comparisom that's why i swtich03:23
emmamindrape: What do you click on to get the list of avaliable networks?03:23
cactus__so i should tell grub that I want it to be on my HD?03:23
jeeves_Mosselashish, I think I tired that.  This has been a longer standing install and has had 2 dist-upgrades, so I think I should blow it away and start fresh.  This is my road warrier laptop03:23
n8tuser2emma -> sudo iwlist wlan0 scan <-- is this overly difficult to type in your terminal to see hotspots around you?03:23
Its_me<mindrape> Its working correctly on my another OS, even in OS choice menu.03:23
mindrapeemma - ask jrib... I dont use that except on my laptop which I barely bootup anymore.03:24
jribmindrape: ditto03:24

exodus_msIts_me: did you upgrade from 8.0403:24
IndyGunFreakemma: you can left clcik on nm-applet, and it should show networks you wireless device can see03:24
mindrapeIts_me - check dmesg for errors... ?03:24
emman8tuser2: well i did that earlier and it says it does not support that, however, doing: "sudo iwlist wifi0 scan" does give me a list of available networks in the command line.03:24
bravo7plytheman for 64?03:24
Its_me<exodus_ms> No fresh install03:24
jeeves_Mosselashish, yea, I'll do that when I get home.  I think I've still got the orignal disks I ordered somewhere around the house.03:25
jeeves_Mosselashish, all I know is that the network install of Ubuntu (the mini disk) is a life saver on old/odd ball systems03:25
bravo7plytheman sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree?03:25
plythemanbravo7: not sure, I'm still pretty new to buntu myself, but that should work03:25
n8tuser2emma -> replace wlan0 with your wireless nic name perhaps ath003:25
marinenightrid3r, still with us03:25
elashishjeeves_Moss agreed, and if the latest version doesn't work, i would revert back to LTS03:25
Its_memindrape: but I am using same Keyboard in PS/2 mode.03:25
bravo7plytheman i think i got it03:25
emman8tuser2: Huh?03:25
plythemansweet deal03:26
mindrapeemma - I think I might know the problem... if you got your wireless device working via        sudo iwconfig you may need to sudo ifconfig wifi0 down     then re-enable it via nm-applet so it "has control"03:26
jeeves_Mosselashish, is 9.0 out yet?03:26
elashishjeeves_Moss it's in alpha, you can try it but it's not recommended - it won't be out until april03:26
jeeves_Mosselashish, I'm wondering if it'll fix my nVidia GO issue and actully let me run 3D stuff without locking up my system every 3 mins03:26
scuniziWhat does pci=nomsi mean in the kernel line?  what does it do?03:26
elashishjeeves_Moss i doubt it, nVidia is nVidia :-(03:26
n8tuser2emma -> wireless nic names varies, it could have been wllan0, ath0, anyname0, eth103:27
emmamindrape: my guess is that the same reason "sudo iwlist wifi0 scan" works and "sudo iwlist wlan0 scan" does not, is the same reason that there is no list of available networks showing up in the nm-applet. Maybe there is some way to tell nm-applet to scan using wifi0 too.03:27
EagleScreenwhat is ubuntu hug day?03:27
mindrapeemma - maybe so... perhaps you can pass it parameters when you launch it?  man nm-applet ?03:27

mindrapedrop the sudo actually from the makes...03:36

liquidjeeves_Moss You know this is a stretch, but is it possible your machine has been rootkit'd ?03:36
mindrapeor add it to sudo ./configure.  :P03:36
jeeves_Mossliquid, both systems?03:37
liquidjeeves_Moss I know for a fact your system binaries have been modified or redirected, but I can't tell you why03:37
mindrapespaw1 - usually if its a driver you need to sudo though... and in the event it fails and you wanna get rid of it then             sudo make uninstall them remove the directories...03:37
liquidjeeves_Moss Ask anyone else in this chat to run 'lspci -k'03:37
jeeves_Mossliquid, that dosen't make any sense though.  BOTH systems?  my laptop AND the server?03:37

PC_NerdAny ideas on moving an ntfs partition from inside an extended partition to "next to" the extended partition?03:41
jedi06is there something like disk defrag for linux?03:41
redvamp128joejc:  that is a question-- you should ask in #winehq -- should be able to tell you more in that room03:42
mindrape!defrag | jedi0603:42
ubottujedi06: The default Ubuntu filesystem (ext3) is engineered to avoid fragmentation issues in most cases, see http://linkpot.net/behead/ for a simple example on how it achieves this.03:42
mindrape!gparted | pc_nerd03:42
ubottupc_nerd: gparted is a !GTK/!Gnome !GUI partitioning program. Type « sudo apt-get install gparted » in a console to install it - A GParted "live" CD is available at http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php03:42
redvamp128joejc:  if you want to install direct x-- you should need wine and probably winetricks as well as a valid MS liscence03:42
_Vi_jedi06: usually defragging in linux isnt necessary,03:42
redvamp128joejc:  I would probably ask that kind of info about direct x in room #winehq03:43
PC_Nerdim using gparted, but I cant seem to find any way to actuall move the partition outside of its extended "parent"....  it seems it only creates resizes and moves within the current position (ie move it around inside the extended, but not move it out of) ?03:43
liquidjedi06 You really don't want to - you have to mount your disk in ext2 and run tools in single mode - I wouldn't even think about doing that unless you are certain your disk is really fragmented03:43
mindrapespaw1 - sudo apt-get install autoconf03:43
jeeves_Mossmindrape, any ideas on how to force an upgrade of lspci?03:43

scuniziWicked, wireshark if you can understand everything it wants to tell you.04:24
tonyyarussodigitalj: Not really.  When you're dealing with server stuff they're very similar anyway.  My main reason is pragmatic rather than technical anyway - I simply prefer the Ubuntu community.  Debian is at leas AS stable and fast; I just don't see a compelling enough reason to use it instead.  Would be comfortable doing so of course though.04:24
codydoes it usually make a difference?04:24

rebel_guican i kill tty1?04:27
mindraperebel_gui - it will probably revive itself... from PID 104:27

mindraperebel_gui - why do you wanna kill it?04:28
liquidjeeves__ Well, if I had time and total control over the machine, I would probably just use webmin and write some scripts to add/disable/remove customers...04:28

Wickedusser, hmm ok ill have to look into it then...im still manuall making a bridge....but it works perfect for me....04:30
liquidjeeves__ I like webmin, personally.04:30
jeeves__liquid, and virtualmin I think is the one I was looking @04:30
usserWicked: in 2.1 you just select Host networking in the vb settings and it works through magic04:31
liquidjeeves__ Yeah, virtualmin is the package for multi-site hosting04:31
liquidjeeves__ I couldn't remember the name off the top of my head04:31
ziggles1liquid webmin is opensource, correct?04:31
liquidjeeves__ Correct.04:31
rebel_guimindrape, because it is unresponsive, once in a blue moon it locks up entirely, i can kill the processes running on it and its still stuck there, i would like to reload it04:31

mindrapeyes it is ziggles104:31
ziggles1liquid, what do you like about it?04:31
jeeves__liquid, well, that's the general idea.  I have one sever in Toronto, and I'll put one up here in Vancouver04:31

liquiddigitalj Until you start trying to emerge things in life because you have to type it so often ;)04:46
mindrapeif you want to get into the nitty gritty of linux then go for linux from scratch (LFS) , gentoo, or slackware... they will force you to manually configure things.     /offtopic04:46
redvamp128un_dave:  you could go back to that folder and choose sudo make unistall04:46
mindrapeun_dave           ./configure             make                 make install                    you need to apt-get install build-essentials and kernel-headers and libc-dev I believe.04:46

mindrapeun_dave err.. didn't read what you wrote... yeah.. make uninstall  :)04:47

vduckHey, I'm trying to get a program (Never Winter Nights Linux Client) to use an i386 version of SDL05:24
nickrudubottu tell gerob about cairo-dock05:24
ubottugerob, please see my private message05:24
bluedragonWell My question is I am planing to buy a new computer and I don't wont to loose all my settings and everything is there a way to back up the whole ubuntu os and like restore it on my new computer05:24
brand0conmaybe another will do the trick. even vlc has capture devices supported now05:24
vduckI think (?) it's going for the x86_6405:25
vduckof the SDL05:25
h00kI have two gnome panels, both are NOT set to expand, but where would I look to make the caps (yes, I have show 'hide buttons' unchecked) (see http://drop.io/n8qxpqj)05:25
nickrudbluedragon, if you have never manually edited /etc/* , making sure you have a backup of your home should transfer all your personal settings05:25
=== tweak is now known as tweak66
h00kcaps transparent*05:25
tweak66has anyone use gnome-voice-control05:25
freshhawkbluedragon, you should be able to just copy your home folder over and be good to go05:25
bluedragonnickrud even software05:26
miranda_psibluedragon: most program settings for the user are kept in their home directory, so you can copy those and be set05:26
nickrudbluedragon, and   sudo dpkg --get-selections > mypackages.txt , moving that file to the new machine after install, then sudo dpkg --get-selections < mypackages.txt && sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade will restore the software05:26
vduckbluedragon: when you set if up, have /home mount to a separate partition. You can reinstall / without touching it. which doesn't help if you've already set it up....05:26
nickrudbluedragon, that's sudo dpkg --set-selections < mypackages.txt as the second command05:26
gerobWhat is the shortcut for switching workspaces please?05:27
bluedragonNickrud you lost me05:27
nickrudgerob, ctl-alt-> left/right arrow05:27
miranda_psigerob: ctrl+alt+(left or right arrow)05:27
bluedragonok lets say i installed ubuntu on my new computer what do i do next05:27
gerobAny reason why it wouldn'05:27
gerobt be working?05:27
nickrudbluedragon,   sudo dpkg --get-selections > mypackages.txt will get a list of all installed software, and save it in a file05:27
tweak66gerob: if you have graphics magicx all the way on you can use the mouse scroll05:27
vduckgerob, thanks for asking that; I've wanted to know that for a whiile05:28
h00kI have two gnome panels, both are NOT set to expand, but where would I look to make the caps transparent? (yes, I have show 'hide buttons' unchecked) (see http://drop.io/n8qxpqj for screenshot)05:28
mattgyver83Are Ad-Hoc networks automatically detected in hardy?05:28
h00kmattgyver83, yep05:28
miranda_psigerob: you could override or disable that feature from compiz05:28
gerobAhh might be what i did05:28
bluedragonnickrud ok got you05:28
nickrudbluedragon, then   sudo dpkg --set-selections < mypackages.txt will read that list, on the new machine, and set them up for installation.  sudo apt-get deselect-upgrade  will perform the actual download and install05:28
pizzledizzledid u know that jack bauer spent 2 years in chinese captivity where he was tortured?05:28

PUNISHERHi everyone!05:33
Brack10in the guide for integrating samba with kerberos I'm supposed to check what version of MIT Kerberos libraries are installed on m y computer by entering "rpm -q krb5" which of course doesn't work.  so I tried sudo apt-cache showpkg krb5 and that also didn't work.  Anyone know how to check this on Ubuntu?05:33
PUNISHERHow are you?05:33
mykethanks regress ill give it a shot05:33
PC_NerdHow can i move a logical partition out of an extended partition?  Im using gparted at the moment.05:33
RegressLess1System/Administration/Synaptic Package Manager05:34
nickrudRegressLess1, maybe http://linuxwebcam.org/ can point you in the right direction.05:34
Brack10RegressLess1: are you directing that at me?05:34
bling4mmHello all, I have three questions. 1. How do I play rmvb and rm files (and all the other video files that VLC cannot not play) 2. What is the ubuntu quivalent of HJ Split? 3. How do I extract compressed files like rar and zip?05:34
vduckPC_nerd: I think you'd have to copy into an extended partition. I don't believe there's a way to change it. Gpart has tools for copying partitions05:35
PC_NerdOk thanks05:35
PUNISHERbling4mm: for rar archives I recommend install unrar package05:35
nickrudRegressLess1, and http://www.linuxplanet.com/linuxplanet/tutorials/6463/3/ has some good links05:35
PC_NerdGpart as in the "Manage Partitions" under sts->admin ? or how do i get/use it?05:35
h00kbling4mm, file roller will also support splitting archives05:36
mykeok odd in synaptics firefox is uninstalled ,... i assume its asking me to mark it for installation ... but it still shows up under the internet tab .. and works05:36
PC_Nerd*System->Administration->Partition Editor ?05:36
bluedragonhas any one ever used simple backup from the add/remove programs list05:36
vduckPC_Nerd: I'm working from memory, but there's a GUI tool: it shows the whole disk. You can highlight a partition, and there's probably a "copy" button somewhere05:37
vduckYou've got to have an extended part to copy it too05:37
PC_Nerdyeah I found it - thanks :)05:37
vduckYou can only have.. what 4 of those05:37
bling4mmDoes unrar extract zip files as well?05:37
vduck4 extended, and in one of those you can have 4 logical... I think05:38
PC_Nerdim attempting to move it outside of the extended partition.  its currently inside sda3 and im trying to make it so that i only have sda1 (win) and sda2 (ntfs data)  sda2 is currently inside an extedned partition.05:38
h00kbling4mm, file roller supports zip files already05:38
jdsbluedevlhi, I'm having issues installing the update for Moblock.  As in, it doesn't want to upgrade.  Neither does it want to be removed05:38
RegressLess1myke: Sorry, I've not actually tried to remove Firefox. What is the reason you want to be rid of it?05:38
jdsbluedevlwhat can I do?05:38
PUNISHERbling4mm: for zip there is archives manager.05:39
PUNISHERin ubuntu05:39
mykei just want a clean system and i dont want it in my menus, opera seems to be a much better browser oddly on ubuntu05:39
bling4mmSo file roller extracts both zip and rar, AND functions as HJ split?05:40
vduckPC_Nerd: what partitions do you have currently, and what type (logical/extend) are they?05:40
jdsbluedevlI put my error info for the moblock update on pastebin at http://paste.ubuntu.com/107603/05:40
vduckAnybody: running a 32 bit program on a 64 bit machine?05:41
vduckspecifically, SDL?05:41
jdsbluedevlit's very quiet in here, I put out my question and no one is biting either05:41
PC_Nerdvduck:  sda1 (ntfs windoze), sda3 (extended)-> sda5(ntfs data)     im currently in the proccess of removing partitions which is why sda2 and others are missing atm.   Im attempting to make:  sda1(windoze), sda2(ntfs data), so that ntfs3 can be extended with ubuntu in it.05:41

CostaRicanQuakercan someone help me fix this, i  just clicked on an mp3 and it doesnt...do anyhting it gets stuck05:42
ubottuCostaRicanQuaker: Doesn't work is a strong statement. Does it sit on the couch all day? Does it want more money? Is it on IRC all the time? Please be specific! Examples of what doesn't work tend to help too.05:42
h00kI have two gnome panels, both are NOT set to expand (which is what I'd like), but where would I look to make the caps transparent? (yes, I have show 'hide buttons' unchecked) (see http://drop.io/n8qxpqj for screenshot)05:42
PC_Nerdvduck, I currently have a 30gb unallocated section outside of the extended partition, so im copying sda5 to there, so that I have 2 partitions outside of extended which is how I want it... waiting for it to copy  (all 29 GB of it ) - so itll be a while05:42
RegressLessmyke: does Opera work across most OS's? I'm mainly looking for as little limitation as possible.05:43
sp0tteh"fdisk -l" shows /dev/sdc1, but there is no sdc1 showing up in "/dev" (only "sdc") .. any ideas?05:43

mykeopera works perfect on every os ive tried it on .. it really has grown as a browser..05:43
CostaRicanQuakerwhich is odd as youtube is playing and it has sound05:43
vduckPC_Nerd: so you've got it to do what you want? The copying will take a while...05:44

Flannelvince: Interesting.  You are a part of admin.  Ok, I'm unfortunately going to need you to go back to the root console.  Once there, do this: cp /etc/sudoers /home/username/Desktop/sudoers && chmod a+r /home/username/Desktop/sudoers06:06
CoUrPsE|DeAdkbrosnan, He's now using OSS.06:06
phpstarthx tv06:06
Flannelvince: (where username is your username, obviously).  We need to take a look at your sudoers file to see whats going on.06:07
tv7497phpstar: np06:07
vinceFlannel : Ok One moment please.06:07
CostaRicanQuakerkbrosnan, under known issues?06:07
CoUrPsE|DeAdCostaRicanQuaker, Youtube is working fine for me, im using OSS for everything except for default mixer. I am listening to music at the same time.06:08
blingtien: you dont want third party software.  you want the tab to the left.  i would tell you what its called, but im on windows, and i cant remember it.  its something like "main repositories" or something06:08
CostaRicanQuakerIf you experience problems with audio synchronization after installation, you may need to edit the file /etc/firefox/firefoxrc06:08
tv7497Flannel: hello sir was finally able to run enlightenment but i prefer gnome rather than that06:08
CostaRicanQuaker^where is that?06:08
kbrosnanCoUrPsE|DeAd: well what costa is experiencing is textbook for the the issue described in that pulse audio page06:08
moodany vsftpd users know how to check for version#?06:08
CoUrPsE|DeAdkbrosnan, Okies, Does OSS use pulseaudio ?06:09
CostaRicanQuakerIn previous Ubuntu releases, Flash support can be enabled in two ways: by downloading and installing a .deb from logicalnetworking.net or by building a patched version of the Flash plugin from source. (See detailed instructions below.If you experience problems with audio synchronization after installation, you may need to edit the file /etc/firefox/firefoxrc. The line referencing FIREFOX_DSP should read FIREFOX_DSP="padsp"06:09
CostaRicanQuaker^how do i do that?06:09
CoUrPsE|DeAdYes it does, nm.06:09
phpstarmood just edit vsftpd.conf file06:09
tienbling, on the tab left, there is "Ubuntu Software" is that right ? Then I don't see repositories at all06:10
mykeughh kde or gnome i cant decide06:10
moodeh? edit it? i just want to check version#06:10
kbrosnanCoUrPsE|DeAd: thought pulse audio was sort of an uber wrapper that tryed to put all the different sound devices under its control06:10
tienbling, or may be Ubuntu 8.10 is different than your version ?06:10
CostaRicanQuaker^kbrosnan,  how do i do that?06:10
phpstari think its conf file also have version info06:11
moodgrep -i version doesn't turn up anything06:11
CostaRicanQuakerdo i sudo apt-get install libflashsupport first?06:11
blingtien: yes, thats the right tab.  its possible that it got moved around between version, though unlikely.  let me see if i can get a guide to it.  i assume you are on intrepid ibex?06:11
kbrosnanCostaRicanQuaker: i don't know, i don't experience the issue06:11
_Vi_myke: you can have both (just not running at the same time of course) 'sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop'06:11
vinceFlannel : Ok I have the file now do you want the output for the uncommented lines?06:11
moodunless of course "vsftpd.conf.5" means verison 5. duh. thx phpstar06:12
Flannelvince: Just patse the entire thing06:12
Flannel!paste | vince06:12
CostaRicanQuakeri mean, you're pointing out that that page has suggestions for it kbrosnan so i'm assuming that there's something to be done in it06:12
ubottuvince: pastebin is a service to post multiple-lined texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu.com (make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic)06:12
CostaRicanQuakerbut i don't know how to do what htat page says06:12
mykevi .. yeah but why have both .. im trying to have a clean efficient . good looking system .. gnome is kind of blah06:12
_Vi_well then :P06:12

Frijolieoften times I'll get a window which is too large to fit on my desktop06:13
_Vi_well there's themes ya know06:13
tienbling, then here are the box list under it: 1) Canonical-supported....2) Community maintained open source (univers)...3) Proprietary drivers .....4) Software restrcited ....(multiverse).....06:13
phpstarmood dude u can open sysnaptic manager and search for vsftpd :)06:13

Frijolieso the top of the window will "bump" up against my top taskbar but will then extend below the bottom taskbar06:13
moodphpstar: yeah, vsftpd is just so streamlined that i don't think it even self documents what version it is :-p06:14
_Vi_myke: just like fluxbox has like 20 themes (built in) so does Icewm :)06:14
CoUrPsE|DeAdFrijolie, Check /etc/X11/xorg.conf for virtual resolutions on your screen device.06:14
Frijolieand therefore I cannot resize the window by draggin on the bottom right corner06:14
mykeis there a dock for icewm?06:14
Flannelvince: Alright, everything looks... in order there.  Ok, um, open up a terminal, and do `sudo echo "foo"`  enter your password, does it give you an error?06:14

FrijolieCoUrPsE|DeAd: man that's hard to type...yes it's just beyond reach06:15
moodphpstar: yes, i know 2.0.7 is latest and greatest. the problem is i don't know what version i have installed and running06:15

CoUrPsE|DeAdFrijolie, Type Co<Press Tab>.06:15

biouseryme you can just mount without fstab, right?06:49

FrijolieCoUrPsE|DeAd, I'm thinking it's a VirtualBox issue06:51
biouseryme well I mount my nfs with $sudo mount /to/this/mount/location06:51

FrijolieCoUrPsE|DeAd, those keyboard shortcuts on that forum posting and others on Google will resize any window but my guest OS06:52
ymebiouser, yes, but then I'd have to do it everytime I reboot right?06:52
biouseryme that is correct...06:52
Shitaladamzyg: in that file where i have to include user name to access all the privilages??06:52
FrijolieCoUrPsE|DeAd, and the boneheads in the VBox IRC chat room aren't responding06:52
blingtv7497: you should be able to right click on the panel and click "delete this panel"06:52
FrijolieCoUrPsE|DeAd, thanks for trying06:52
ymebiouser, I'd like this to be done automatically06:52
biouseryme is there some hidden file in like the gnome settings or something that can interfere with /etc/fstab/ ? I don't know06:52
biouseryme so it always mounts it just changes location?06:53
tv7497bling: thank you sir :)06:53
ymebiouser, the worse thing is that it doesn't happen always. For instance I declared two entries: /dev/sdc1 <mount point a> and /dev/sdd1 <mount point b>06:53
ymebiouser, sometimes <mount point a> points to /dev/sdd1 sometimes to /dev/sdc1 and viceversa06:54
adamzygShital, not always06:54
lytewhat's the volume control called in gnome?06:54
tv7497bling: how can i make avant start up as soon as the desktop starts is there any option ?06:55
biouseryme these are usb drives?06:55
ymebiouser, yes06:55
Shitaladamzyg: i just want to include my user name to sudoers file, but which line?06:56
blingtv7497: yes, i think theres an option in avant to do it, but i cant remember where.  if there isnt an option, you can add it to your session by going to System > Preferences > Sessions and clicking add and then asking in this channel what to add (I dont know that either).06:56
adamzygShital, satisfy yours needs06:56
biouseryme so maybe you are changing the order in which they are plugged in, to which usb inlet, I don't know I am out of my league here, how does ubuntu know which is to be sdc1 and which is to be sdc2?06:56
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about ubuntu-ce06:56
Ahmuck_Jrdoes anyone know if ubuntu-ce has a irc channel?06:56
jrgpis there a jaunty nvidia driver or not?06:57
ymebiouser, the drives have been assigned a name during partitioning. So /dev/sdc1 always refers to one disk, /dev/sdd1 always refers to another disk. The difference is in the mount points06:57
CoUrPsE|DeAdUbuntu will search the usb root hubs and then put them in /dev as they go.06:57

ymebiouser, it's like somehow Ubuntu looses the mount points for the drives06:58
CoUrPsE|DeAdyme, The /dev/sd* change.06:58
biouseryme the entries in fsatb actually change??06:58
=== Swish[\] is now known as Swish
ymeCoUrPsE|DeAd, what do you mean?06:59
adamzygShital, this is the easiest way.06:59
Shitalwhich one?06:59
adamzygShital, after the line of "root ALL=(ALL) ALL"06:59
CoUrPsE|DeAdyme, if one is plugged in before the other, or is first in line at the usb root devices, then it will be made sdc, if the other drive is first in line, it well be sdc otherwise sdd.06:59
Shitaladamzyg: k after this line, i should add "user_name ALL=(ALL) ALL"???07:00
adamzygyeah ^_^07:01
FlannelShital: Why do you want to add your user to the sudoers file?07:01
ymeCoUrPsE|DeAd, are you saying that also the internal name can change? I thought I assigned the names during partitioning. So how am I going to solve this problem?07:01
tv7497bling: thanks found this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=555781 will restart and let you know07:01
FlannelShital: You just need to grant access to the user?07:01
CoUrPsE|DeAdyme, Keep them in the same place, or plug em back in the same place every time you use em.07:02
ymeCoUrPsE|DeAd, the devices are always plugged to the box07:02
Shitali want the user also to have all the access rights as root07:02
afrokenhi, is there a way to install nvidia drivers from terminal?07:02
CoUrPsE|DeAdyme, the mount point isnt changing at all, its doing what you told it to do in fstab, its just the order of devices have changed.07:02
ymeCoUrPsE|DeAd, I never change the location07:02
ganeshhow to log in as root in ubuntu?07:03
CoUrPsE|DeAdganesh, su root07:03
Flannelganesh: Use sudo instead.07:03
FlannelShital: Just add the user to the "admin" group07:03
biouserhow unrecommended would it be to update-manager -d to jaunty right now?07:03
ganeshCoUrPsE|DeAd: i tried but it is not accepting the password07:03
* CoUrPsE|DeAd nods with Flannel, There should be no need to login as root. sudo is fine.07:03
FlannelShital: You don't need to edit sudoers at all.07:03
Flannelbiouser: Jaunty is alpha software.07:04
ymeCoUrPsE|DeAd, do you think it would be worthwhile trying to exchange the entries and see what happens?07:04
ShitalFlannel: how to do that?07:04
CoUrPsE|DeAdganesh, root passwd is different to your normal password, you entered your root password when installed ubuntu.07:04
FlannelShital: sudo adduser username admin07:04
ganeshFlannel:i tried using sudo with cp command it showes some error07:04
TTilusif i conf  sys -> settings -> proxy, will updates obey it too?07:04
werdnumchild what?07:04
FlannelCoUrPsE|DeAd, ganesh: No, the root password doesn't exist.07:04
Flannelganesh: what error?07:04
FlannelCoUrPsE|DeAd: You don't set a root password during the install.07:05
ganeshFlannel: omitting the directory from where i was copying07:05
CoUrPsE|DeAdWell then mine must be diff.07:05
Flannelganesh: That's not a sudo issue then, thats a cp issue.07:05

syockitganesh: you're copying a directory?07:06
biouserIn software testing terminology alpha testing is done by the client in the presence of the tester or developers and the test environment is not open for the end user.07:06
syockitganesh: you'd need the -r parameter07:06
CoUrPsE|DeAdFlannel, Im pretty sure i did, and i can su root, and stick in a diff passwd to my sudo passwd, and it logs in.07:06
Rishabwhile trying to restart my network service i am getting error msg "Reconfiguring network interfaces...SIOCADDRT: File existsFailed to bring up eth0.done."07:06

ymeCoUrPsE|DeAd, from what I can see this happens randomly07:06
biouser8.04-8.10 helped my audio so much but not enough... it is tempting to try jaunty07:06
Flannelbiouser: Right, Jaunty is not fit for normal users.  Alpha software generally is day to day.  Today's upgrades may break something that was working just fine  yesterday.07:07
CoUrPsE|DeAdyme, Then im just as confused as you.07:07
FlannelCoUrPsE|DeAd: Then you're not using Ubuntu07:07
syockitganesh: So it'd be like: sudo cp -r <directory> <target>07:07
CoUrPsE|DeAdPretty sure i am..07:07
ganeshsyockit: hey thanks it works07:07
FlannelCoUrPsE|DeAd: Are you sure you're not using some third party remix of Ubuntu?07:07

Flannelsyockit: Ubuntu doesn't use the root account, it's locked.  So "su" won't work.07:09

syockitzhanglei: why do you want it exist?07:18
CoUrPsE|DeAdzhanglei, Are you looking for /etc/sysctl.d/ ?07:18
vinceFlannel : I figured it out although I have no idea why the heck this worked nor why it wasn't working.  I logged in via a straight console and went into root.  I then disabled the autologin on GDM.  Once I did that I was able to reset the password and now it's taking it.07:18
Flannelvince: Odd indeed.07:18

IchiFishnyaa: ttys are the things which listen for logins when you press ctrl-alt-F*07:21
=== JamesMowery|away is now known as JamesMowery
syockitnyaa: You don't get to increase that much time with that07:21
IchiFishnyaa: although, to be honest, they're small enough that stopping them booting will only decrease your boot time minimally07:21
lstarnesnyaa: they are consoles or terminals07:21
nyaaso if I push control-alt-f2, then another users session comes up?  all I got was a black screen07:22
syockitMaybe you'll increase more productivity if you learn how to live in ttys. No more X!!07:22
syockitnyaa: ? No login prompt?07:22
IchiFishI get some garbage on X startup relating to old contents of the framebuffer. this includes stuff from other operating systems. I suspect a way around this would be to clear the framebuffer before X start. how would I go about this?07:23
nyaasycokit I'm trying with f1 next so I guess I may dissapear, but there was no login prompt.  this is a 1 user machine hehe07:23

CrownAmbassadorInternet connection via ADSL (LAN, wired connection) with 8.10 on some computers seems to be a problem. Looks like a lot of people has this problem but no one has a work around. Anyone here having this problem?07:44
IchiFishcrownambassador: any specifics?07:45
CoUrPsE|DeAdYou havent stated a problem...07:45
syockitCrownAmbassador: it's too generic to say ADSL. It might be problem with the network card/interface07:45
CrownAmbassadorThis is what I posted in the Ubuntu Forum: Hi guys.07:46
CrownAmbassadorI might have asked this question here before, but nobody could help me, so as this is about 2 and a half months later I figured I'd try again. Was actually hoping this would be sorted out via a update by now.07:46
CrownAmbassadorSince doing a fresh install to 8.10, my ADSL (wired, lan or whatever you wanna call it) does not work. When I plug the modem in, the network manager starts working and then connects to a connection it creates on its own called Auto eth0. Only problem is this is all it does. I can't open websites, ping Google, or even ping the router. My work computer running Windows XP is connected to the same router, so the router is fine.07:46
CrownAmbassadorThe machine is question is my personal laptop and it has a built-in 3G card which works perfectly with the network manager.07:46

syockitCrownAmbassador: try something along the lines of 'dmesg | grep Ethernet'07:59
CrownAmbassadorCrownAmbassador: What is the difference between dmesg and lspci?07:59
IchiFish_2: wtf is fun07:59
IchiFishCrownAmbassador: dmesg prints the kernel's log output, lspci prints a readout of what's connected to the PCI bus07:59
CrownAmbassadorsyockit: This has got me for a long time: how do I get that little stripe? hehe07:59

syockitCrownAmbassador: less is a tool for viewing contents of a file, but can also read from standard output (the hell that means anyway)08:12
shaunorww: I believe if you're using gnome's sudo thing, the theme settings should propogate via gnome-settings-daemon.  You just have to make sure the theme you're using is in /usr/local/themes rather than ~/.themes/ else the root apps don't see it08:12

syockitof, the compiz matters. I forgot08:41
rwwafroken: If you're not having problems with Xorg, /etc/X11/xorg.conf being empty shouldn't be a problem.08:41
syockitwell you can create a xorg08:41
lartzjeeves_moss> well for starters w.o.w and maybe some other games08:41
Rachid_IchiFish: i go to the folder propreties and its says im cannot change permissions since im not owner08:42
_2Rachid_ as a general rule only the superuser should ever own a partition.    i don't think we are talking about the same thing though.08:42
syockitI forgot the lines...08:42
_2Rachid_ what "folder" ?08:42
IchiFishRachid_: the raw device files for disks and partitions are usually ever (and should ever only be) owned by root08:42
jeeves_Mosslartz, good luck!  I'd just like to play some steam games.  Go check on the Wine pages08:42
CrownAmbassadorIchiFish: Oh! Just restarting quick. Gave me some weird error.08:42
IchiFishRachid_: if you're referring to the mounted folder, I'm not sure08:42
rwwRachid_: gparted runs as root. Newly-created partitions are owned by root by default.08:43
lartzis wine still the only game emulator for ubuntu?08:43
syockitafroken: You need to create a xorg.conf first.08:43
_2owner of a partition is totally irrelivant08:43
IchiFishlartz: wine is not an emulator08:43
Rachid_how can i ever use(copy stuff into itfor eg.) a partition I created then08:43
shaunoall partitions should be owned by root.  ownership is a role of the filesystem within the partition08:43
syockitafroken: and that involves some Xserver killing.08:43
_2Rachid_ what filesystem ?08:44
rwwsyockit, afroken: Default xorg.conf that comes with Intrepid: http://pastebin.com/f6e4bf50d08:44
IchiFishRachid_: sudo cp -R source /mnt/whereitsmounted08:44
paul68is there a way to automaticly change the network connection from home (connection without proxy) and work (connection with proxy) without having to adapt this manually each time08:44
IchiFishafroken: as far as I know you should just be able to put a <device> section in the blank file and put what you need in there and it'll autodetect the rest08:44
_2IchiFish heh.  why not just have him login/run as root   heh...08:44
lartzthen what is wine? (converter?)08:44
IchiFishpaul68: adapt what manually each time?08:44
Rachid_IchiFish: everytime i want to copy??08:44
_2Rachid_ what filesystem ?08:44
afrokenIchiFish, should i just copy rww's file into mine?08:45
Kunalagonso, nobody can confirm if it is possible to browse windows shares using Ubuntu 8.10 ?08:45
IchiFishlartz: sorry, I was just being weird :P wine is an acronym for wine is not an emulator, technically speaking it's a compatibility layer08:45
_2Rachid_ i'm willing to help you,  if you will answer my questions08:45
rwwlartz: http://www.winehq.org/about/08:45
IchiFishkunalagon: sorry, yes, it is08:45
Rachid__2: reisFS08:45
IchiFishkunalagon: if you can't see it under places -> network, then try putting the info in manually in places -> connect to server08:45
_2Rachid_ and mounted where ?08:45
CrownAmbassadorIchiFish: so the right command is http://pastebin.ubuntu/107645 ?08:45
rwwlartz: Anyway. Wine's compatibility has gotten better over the years, but it still has problems with some games. You can use the Wine AppDB ( http://appdb.winehq.org/ ) to look up details.08:45
KunalagonIchiFish: I share some folder in WIndows, and I see my Windows machine, but when I double clikck, there is no folder there (using nauitlus)08:46
EF_CoddSorry if this is OT, but is there any truth to a "Obuntu" release for the inauguration?08:47
IchiFishkunalagon: that's odd, you're sure you've got things set up correctly? can other windows machines see them?08:47
FlannelEF_Codd: No08:47
lartzichifish> ok ;) rww> ok thanks i will check it out becouse i wanna know befor i jump in and starts to install and cant get my wow to work that would be the end of the world for me :-P08:47
RemsSshi everybdy08:47
EF_CoddFlannel ah ok08:47
KunalagonIchiFish: I have to try that...08:47
Rachid__2: I first tried in an existing extended partition where there was unallocated space because I had already created many partition this week and it was always possible for me to use it right away08:47
EF_CoddFlannel guess they are playing games in #debian again08:47
_2Rachid_ and mounted where ?08:47
huwenfengone server run rsync as daemon, i use ps aux | grep rsync | grep -v grep to get the number of rsync. how can i caculate the real rsync number from this number?08:47
IchiFishCrownAmbassador: sudo -s; ifconfig eth0 up; route add default gw; echo 'nameserver' > /etc/resolv.conf08:47
_2Rachid_ and mounted where ?      i mean where are you mounting the filesystem you just created ?08:47
IchiFishCrownAmbassador:  notice the semi colon after the sudo -s08:47
Rachid_well its automatically mounted as /media/data308:47
rwwlartz: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft may be of help for WoW :)08:48
Rudd-Ooh yeah for those who may be interested: http://rudd-o.com/new-projects/linuxvideoconverter08:48
_2Rachid_ ok, run this command,   sudo chown $USER /media/data308:48
EF_CoddFlannel so I guess the rumours of "Bushuntu" are also false?08:48
FlannelEF_Codd: Indeed.  I suggest future inquiries like this should be in #ubuntu-offtopic08:48
_2Rachid_ you now "own the partition"  in your terminology08:48
EF_CoddFlannel of course. Thank you for your patience.08:48
lartzrww> thanks :)08:49
CrownAmbassadorIchiFish: Okay. That finished without any output. Usually a good thing right?08:49
Rachid__2: it says chown: cannot access `/media/data3': No such file or directory08:49
IchiFishCrownAmbassador: yup. now try pinging your router, see what happens08:49
IchiFishRachid_: adapt the command to where it's mounted08:49
_2Rachid_ then it's not mounted there.08:49
avantcoredoes anybody in here have any experience getting dual monitors working?08:49
_2Rachid_ you can use    df -h   to see where it is mounted08:49
_2Rachid_ or    mount08:50
Rachid_oops, right... i changed it so many times08:50
Rachid_ill try again08:50
lartzbtw is a AMD1.8ghz 512mb-RAM 128mbGeforce to low to run the new ubuntu on?08:50
IchiFishlartz: plenty08:50
rww!requirements | lartz08:50
talntidavantcore: if you have a specific question, ask it08:50
ubottulartz: Hardware requirements to install, boot and comfortably use Ubuntu are listed at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SystemRequirements - For a !flavor with lower requirements, see !Xubuntu08:50
CoUrPsE|DeAdavantcore, What exactly the problem?08:50
avantcoreeh I don't really have a good question to ask, I've just got this situation I'm dealing with08:51
CrownAmbassadorIchiFish: response is "connect: Nework is unreachable". Isn't that command I entered suppose to be in the resolv file now?08:51
avantcoreI can get both monitors to work if I'm not using fglrx08:51
_2lartz i would certainly hope not.    i run old ubuntu on a p1 100mhz 64mb ram08:51
Rachid__2: root is still the owner and i cant even create a folder in this mounted partition08:51
avantcorebut I get flickering around the mouse which is really annoying08:51
avantcoreso I'm trying to use fglrx08:51
avantcoreand it works properly when gdm comes up08:51
luke_I'm trying to enable 3d cube on my desktop with compizconfig like I had last time but for some reason it's not working08:51
IchiFishCrownAmbasador: no, the resolv.conf thing was just to set the dns server information08:52
avantcorebut then when I log on it just starts mirroring08:52
_2Rachid_ what is the mountpoint ?08:52
IchiFishCrownAmbassador: paste the output of ifconfig eth0 again somewhere08:52
bobslaedeis there a channel for complaining about vista? :)08:52
talntidbobslaede: yes, #2,00008:52
rwwbobslaede: ##windows08:52
luke_bob, google Vista Forums :p08:52
Rachid__2: /media/sdfs08:52
CoUrPsE|DeAdavantcore, System/Prefences/Screen resolution/disable mirror, and click on the monitor it shows, and drag it, sometimes second head hides behind the first.08:52
luke_So can I get help with my probllem?08:52
bobslaedeluke_: no forums, instant complains! :)08:52
rwwavantcore: have you tried changing the stuff in System > Preferences > Screen Resolution (it has a "mirror screens" setting)?08:53
syockitRachid_: should've mounted with different permissions08:53
_2Rachid_ and   sudo chown $USER /media/sdfs08:53
Rachid__2: and i typped : sudo chown $USER /media/sdfs08:53
Spawnhay when i updated ubuntu from 8.4 to 8.10 x no longer works08:53
eatThisAndDieguys, anyone know how to configure Intel GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller so that my PC doesn't hang whenever i need 3D?08:53
luke_Ahh my mistake, try vista chatrooms08:53
_2Rachid_  and you aren't doing that from a root terminal ?08:53
IchiFishSpawn: will almost certainly be easier to just backup and reinstall08:53
avantcoreyes I've messed around with The screen Resolution preferences pane; only one monitor shows up there08:53
CrownAmbassadorIchiFish: My 3G connectin was running when I ran that command. Would this have caused a problem?08:53
syockitRachid_: never mind, after sudo chown, what did it say?08:53
luke_So is anyone going to help with my 3d cube problem?08:53
lartzThanks guys you have been a great help i will start to test the new ubuntu on my old pc insted :)08:53
bobslaedeluke_: alright. they made me switch to vista at work :( im going crazy08:53
IchiFishCrownAmbassador: hmm...it shouldn't have, but come to think of it, network manager might have08:54
paul68IchiFish: well now I have to adapt each time the proxy settings and want to have this done automaticly08:54
luke_bob, what for08:54
IchiFishCrownAmbassador: hang on a sec08:54
CoUrPsE|DeAdavantcore, click on the one you see, and drag to the right, one often hides behind the other.08:54
Spawnit does the same thing when i put in a live cd of ubuntu 8.1008:54
_2Rachid_ show me the output of   mount | grep sdfs08:54
Rachid_syockit: nothing, just as if it was working08:54
bobslaedeluke_: no idea, active directory stuff i guess08:54
Spawnor anything with the new kernel08:54
luke_bobslaede: can you help me with compiz?08:54
bobslaedeluke_: i have a load of 100% most of the time, because of the about 20 apps i have installed, so its useable :P08:54
avantcoredragging to the right does nothing.  I think I've experienced the hiding monitor box when I wasn't using fglrx so I don't think that's the issue08:55
bobslaedeluke_: depends on your problem?08:55
CrownAmbassadorIchifish: Hanking ;-)08:55
CrownAmbassadorI meant hanging!08:55
_2Rachid_ and the output of    ls -l /media/sdfs08:55
talntidSpawn: what error does it give?08:55
luke_Trying to enable 3d cube, for some reason it's still flat08:55
syockitbobslaede: tell them that with samba4, you don't have to worry about active dir compatibility08:55
IchiFishpaul68: I don't know how to do this off the top of my head, search for ubuntu network profile setups08:55
bobslaedesyockit: i told them... didnt work08:55
Rachid__2: /dev/sda1 on /media/sdfs type reiserfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal)08:55
Spawnwith live cd it gives some pci error08:55
syockitDamn corporates!08:55
bobslaedeluke_: sometimes you need to restart compiz for it to take effects, log out, and log back in08:55
_2Rachid_ and the output of    ls -l /media/sdfs08:56
bobslaedeluke_: do you have the compiz settings manager installed?08:56
IchiFishCrownAmbassador: OK, I don't have network manager installed at the moment and I can't find anything obvious on google, try setting the information for eth0 manually to a static ip address08:56
* syockit suspects uber business deals going around the top management08:56
Rachid__2: ls -l /media/sdfs08:56
talntidSpawn: "some pci error" -- that's not going to get you much help here. go find the error, write it down, come back, and tell us.08:56
bobslaedesyockit: i agree08:56
Rachid__2: total 008:56
Spawnbut with the update from 8.4 to 8.10 it gives aperture pointing to e820 ram. ignoring08:56
IchiFishCrownAmbassador: the relevant info will be ip address:; default gateway (or something similar):; dns servers (if it needs them)
Spawnyour bios doesnt leave a aperture memory hole08:57
luke_I have tried restarting.  I have compizconfig settings manager running right now so yes08:57
_2Rachid_ try with + before you paste     so we can see it.08:57
bobslaedesyockit: also, ironicly enough, we have php develpment servers running only thru ssh, so i need an app for that, and it takes like 80% of my cpu :)08:57
Spawnplease enable the iommu option in the bios setup this will costs you 64mb of ram08:57
bobslaedeluke_: then i don't think i can help, i'm sorry08:57
_2Rachid_ sorry the output of    ls -dl /media/sdfs08:57
bobslaedeluke_: im sure there is a #compiz channel around? have you tried there08:58
_2Rachid_ the -d is important there.  my mistake.08:58
Spawnthats it08:58
Rachid__2: gives "Total 0"08:58
CoUrPsE|DeAdavantcore,  i have 'multiple screens' installed on mine that i use, But i cant remember where to get it.08:58
_2Rachid_ i don't think so.08:58
luke_How would I access that, I'm a newb :p08:58
talntidSpawn: did you look for that option in bios?08:58
syockitRachid_: you didn't create the directory before mounting?08:58
Spawnidk where i would look08:59
CrownAmbassadorIchiFish: So I just add a wired connection? It is asking for a Mac address, if it must use 802.1X security and the method of the ipv4 setting08:59
luke_So can anyone else help me with comizconfig?08:59
syockit_2: do you need to mkdir for mount?08:59
bobslaedeluke_: /join #compiz08:59
avantcorecourpse: is that a separate program?08:59
talntidSpawn: when you reboot the computer, go into bios, usually the "del" key08:59
Spawnand i also have vista installed and i dont want to mess that up talntid08:59
IchiFishCrownAmbassador: eek, I think you might be on the wrong screen08:59
_2syockit if there is not dir   mount will just fail with "mountpoint does not exist"08:59
CoUrPsE|DeAdavantcore, Yes, im trying to find itnow.08:59
Rachid__2: mount | grep sdfs  gives "drwxr-xr-x 4 jean-francois root 80 2009-01-21 03:30 /media/sdfs"08:59
IchiFishhang on a second, I'll install network-manager to see how it works08:59
talntidit won't, and if it does, you can just disable it08:59
avantcoreI just found it in apt08:59
avantcoreI'll take a look at it08:59
CrownAmbassadorIchiFish: oops! I'm being so humbled today!09:00
luke_Thanks :)09:00
_2Rachid_ "jean-francois"  owns that dir(filesystem mounted there) now.09:00
Rachid_syockit: I create a partition and then after I see it  in "computer" so then I double click on it and it opens09:00
IchiFishCrownAmbassador: ok, brb, apt needs to kill networking09:00
=== JamesMowery is now known as JamesMowery|away
_2Rachid_ so if you are user "jean-francois"   do something like   touch /media/sdfs/boo09:01
CoUrPsE|DeAdCrownAmbassador, Does your 'ifconfig' give you a ip?09:01
xcodehi i have a small problem overe here09:01
_2Rachid_ if no errors then we are done.09:01
xcodei wanted ti change my splash screen but i didnt find it on my prefrenceses09:02
zirodayxcode: splash screen?09:02
CoUrPsE|DeAdCrownAmbassador, type in Xchat: /exec -o ifconfig eth0 | grep inet09:02
=== JamesMowery|away is now known as JamesMowery
xcodethe splash screen09:02
Rachid__2: typing this just created a file named boo (im logged as Jean-Francois) but I still cant drag and drop a file in this place09:03
aeosynthwhat's the command to give my group folder access - create and delete files, file access - read and write?09:03
zirodayxcode: ubuntu has no splash screen. What are you referring to?09:03
bullgard4What means '61c61' in  http://paste.ubuntuusers.de/393818/? (man diff stinks.)09:03
_2Rachid_ correct.  which means you own the filesystem09:03
CrownAmbassadorCoUrPsE|DeAd: The only thing it gives me is a hardware address. I'm not running Xchat on my linux laptop. Its on the works windows machine.09:03
IchiFishright, back09:03
_2Rachid_ need anything else ?09:03
zirodayaeosynth: chmod g+rw <folder>09:03
xcodethe one that comesin the beginnong09:03
aeosynthxcode: you mean the ubuntu logo and progress bar?09:04
Rachid__2: oh sorry, actualy i just drrag and drop and it has worked09:04
xcodei thinkg09:04
zirodayxcode: before you logon?09:04

Rachid__2: but i still cant create any folder in this reisFS partiotion09:04
ubottuAs 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 :)09:04
CrownAmbassadorIcheFish: I'm just wondering. When we ran all those commands that I pasted, I was connected on 3G. Would this have made a difference?09:04
aeosynthxcode: check out startupmanager (sum)09:05
CoUrPsE|DeAdCrownAmbassador, okies, System/Prefences/Network configuration09:05
_2Rachid_ yes you can.   mkdir -p /media/sdfs/testing/dir/creation09:05
aeosynth!startupmanager | xcode09:05
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about startupmanager09:05
IchiFishCrownAmbassador: on the network manager main pane, on the 'wired' tab, click edit when auto eth0 or whatever is selected, then navigate to the ipv4 settings tab, change the method to manual, click add, fill the address as, the netmask as, the gateway as, then click ok09:05
CrownAmbassadorCoUrPsE|DeAd: That is the same screen when I just click on the network manager.09:05

_2Rachid_ if your file manager is defuncted  close it, (maybe logout and back in) then reopen it and try the gui way.09:06
CoUrPsE|DeAdokies, IchiFish is back, i'll stop else u'l;l get confused.09:06
Rachid__2: this works, but why can't I just create with the File Browser menu or right click in the window...as usual09:06
Rachid__2: ?09:06
adacI have installed the ubuntu server edition. Now can anyone tell me how to force the server to get an ip address on startup? I always must start dhclient by hand at the moment...09:06
Rachid__2: Could it be corrupted? if yes can I reinstall it?09:07
Slartadac: edit the interfaces file and set it to use dhcp.. afaik that should be enough09:07
rwwadac: are you using wired ethernet or wifi?09:07
IchiFishCrownAmbassador: on the network manager main pane, on the 'wired' tab, click edit when auto eth0 or whatever is selected, then navigate to the ipv4 settings tab, change the method to manual, click add, fill the address as, the netmask as, the gateway as, then click ok09:07
CrownAmbassadorIchiFish: Done09:07
adacrww, ethernet. Slart: where are they located?09:07
IchiFishCrownAmbassador: ah, ok, sorry, not sure if my message had got through09:07
rwwadac: then read "man interfaces" and edit /etc/network/interfaces appropriately09:07
_2Rachid_ short answer is "because everyone keeps crying 'why wont it just work'(automatic) and the developer keep trying to make things more and more like windows, for the sake of all the 'why wont it just work' crap"09:08
IchiFishCrownAmbassador: now try pinging router09:08
adacok rww09:08
CrownAmbassadorIchiFish: Same thing. Should I not restart first?09:08
CoUrPsE|DeAdTry ifconfig09:09
CoUrPsE|DeAdsee if it gives you ip./09:09
IchiFishCrownAmbassador: hmm, you shouldn't have to. what does ifconfig eth0 say now?09:09
rwwadac: You'll probably end up adding two lines: "auto eth0" and "iface eth0 inet dhcp", but it's probably a good idea to read that man page anyway.09:09
Rachid__2: I see...09:09
Jonathan_Ri need the developers site for metapackages09:10
Rachid_thanks il try rebooting now09:10
_2Rachid_ traditionally a linux user would expect to manually mount and dismount file systems   so the developers didn't worry much about gui apps that worked with file needing to keep track of changes,  but with the attempts of automating everything it kindof throughs a wrench in some of the "take for granted's"09:10
Rachid_one more time...09:10
xcodei still didnt get anywhere could someone tell me how can i change the ubuntu progress bar at the beginning please09:10
CrownAmbassadorIchiFish: CoUrPsE|DeAd: Still not getting an ip. http://paste.ubuntu.com/10765609:11

IchiFishCrownAmbassador: if it's not even managing to bring itself up it sounds like a hardware problem09:12
Rachid_ok thanks09:13
Rachid_good night09:13
Jonathan_Rthere has to be documentation for metapackages, not geared for users09:13

sl00Hi. How can I remove Places and System menu? Or even just remove entries from those menus? Right click does not work (which suck IMO). I have tried the menu editor but it only allow me to add/remove programs from the menu and not all entries.09:14
Jonathan_Ri'm trying to generate a channel list, or a repo list09:14
IchiFishmiranda_psi: google says it's a socket buffer09:14

gagicai don't find my drive to ati radeon 925009:15
